S PROEM WHEN any new volume is placed before the public it is in keeping with the pragmatic spirit of the age, to briefly state its aim, in order that the reader can tell at a glance whether it falls with in his realm of inter- est or usefulness. The purpose of this volume is to present the spirit and life of Goshen College, during the year, in a concrete form. The historian will find valuable records which are not available in any other form. The Alumnus will be able to make a comparative study of the progress of his Alma Mater. The student of this year will be given the privilege to re-live in his memory the pleasant exper- iences of the college year. The members of the faculty will be inspired by the effect of their influence as they see their own higher ideals exemplified in the students. Though the preparation of the material necessary for such a volume is a difficult task, the staff will consider the effort well worth while if their aim will have been realized. THE EDITORS Page Five THE COLLEGE YEAR THUS wrote the poet. Aud thus experience proves. For in kjoking back over the brief space of a year many changes are in evidence on the campus and in the group of people constituting the personnel of Goshen College. There is not any one change so large in aud of itself. But the many smaller and larger ones together form a resultant change that in its total effect puts a different aspect upon the campus as a whole and leaves a noticeable trace upon the school. The one great factor in this transformation has been time. Time, that rest- less. ruthles.s, Ijenevoleut power which causes wounds and also heals them again, which often moves so laggardly, and then again so rapidly tlies; time than which no force is more powerful to eft ' ect changes materially and physi- cally, also mentally and spiritually. So this ever bu.sy worker plied constantly his shuttle between the limits that mark the period surveyed liy the ' " laple Leaf " of nineteen sixteen. The first transformation thus to be observed that time had wrought was noticed in the sagacious look and dignified demeanor of the Seniors of ' 16. ' Twas but a few moons ago when they had been the " jolly Juniors " of last year. And now the.y had returned, seventeen of them, to their kindly Alma Mater, wearing on their countenances the grave seriousness and dignity worthy of a senior. And whence we ask, came all this gravity, for it was plain that it wa s not only a veneer? And again for answer we must look into the bosom ot time. For the .sage may testify, " Time ripens all tilings. No man is born wise, ' ' SO here one finds when the truth is sought, that gradually with the ebbing time the spark of knowledge and wisdom had been fanned to fiame. And as the time slipped by this constant search for truth and thirst for knowledge had ripened these seventeen sons and daiighters into the finished i)roduct of their Alma Mater. By her they are now sent forth into the active spheres of life to try their skill and demonstrate their sincerity in uoble service and cultural pursuits and by their trained brain and brawn, prove their worth to a man. Thus the year has sped them and so in passing we greet them. However, other changes were also effected by time. Of these we also shall speak. While dift ' erent in kind, they were not of lesser note. To begin, let us mention those occurring in the preceptorial staff. Here b_y change of plan for purposes various, a number of places on the Faculty had become acant. To properly fill these gaps was the institutions task, an undertaking of vital importance, for the previous incumbents had been worthy and their work iippreciated. However, with the wisdom that ripens from experience, the college cheerfully took up its task and was enabled to find fitting successors, who, by zeal and earnest devotion to their work, carried forward the move- ment constructively. Page Six THE ilAPLE LEAF Thus first to mention, into the department of Psyehology and Education came for ninteen sixteen, Mr. George D. Bivin. His ability as a student of mind-stuff soon won him a place among the student body. His practical knowledge of the profession of teaching was readily imbibed by the young ped- agogs to be. His broad genial smile and fine (|ualities of sociability did not make him seem at all a stranger but the reverse. To Goshen, his stay will be one long to be remembered. To the work of Biologic Sciences came i Ir. Samuel Witmer. For the first time he undertook to direct the niinds of college students into the facts which underlie living tissue. However his seriousness of (nirpose, his quiet dispo- sition and his careful systematic- methods of instruction and observation led ihe way to many vital truths of life aud revealed many phases of tiiis interest- ing science to both eager and less observant pupil. As to nuisie. ilr. Gustav Dunkelberger, a real genius at the keys, was the choice for the acancy that had occurred in the Piano department. Though modest and retiring by disposition, his devotion to his chosen art and his abil- itj- in interpreting the soul of nuisic to audiences whom he always pleased, made him many v, arm and loyal friends among students and with the entire college community. But not alone in music are his claims. As evidence to his spirit of progress and efficiency, and through his hearty cooperation the equipment of the School of IMusie has been increased by a handsome Grand piano of highest merit and excellent musical tone. A fourth one .joined our ranks. A woman gentle and demure. F ' or knowl- edge famed and excellent in judgment. Her happy lot it was to lead the youth- ful minds into the beauties of the poet ' s art and also guide their pens into the oratorio l ights of younger rhetoricians. But also to her sphere there fell the Page Seven THE .MAIM.E LEAF task iiioi ' e ardiKius of the office of Preceptress. This duty, w itli its iiiaiiy |)rol)- lenis, devolved upon Miss I lary Hooley who did full justice to the claims and never lost her pleasant smile. The last change to note in the faculty role came in the Husiness school. To direct its work came Mr. Homer Sehrock who administered affairs with char- acteristic business manner. Not theoretical only were his preeejjts, for the Business Office of the school was also in his char re. Material changes M-ere also witnessed. So gradually under the workman ' s skill wa.s brought to perfection the beautiful and commodious new Science Hall. Its well-shaped cornerstone had been placed down a year ago. And ever since workmen in nundiers large or small have busily plied their tools on same until now it stands a fitting monument of able jilans and skillful labor. What I ' lnids of knowledge cannot be dispensed witliin its spacious halls. ' Wliat mysteries of science and domestic art will not lie here revealed? For from its topmost he ight to its basement floors its room and laboratories are all devoted to science. So on the upper floor Chemistry and l hysies will find their home. Then de- scending to the next, the arts of domestic economy will hold ' their sway. While lower still and level with the ground, the halls are at tlic ser ice of the sciences that deal witii life in aiiinud and phuit. And last of all tile coiiUHodious liase- nient rooms, will lie devoted to the wealth producing sciences of Agriculture and Dairying. Thus housed wit ' un these new bricl walls, tlie sciences will henceforth lind ample room to reveal their facts to iutiu ' c geiici-afions of eager investigators. Within the old Administration building. pi ' ogT-ess was also made. For man. - Page Eight THE MAIM.K l.KAF years the constantly increasing number of diligent seekers after truth had found themselves more or less crowde d and cramped within the confines of the Reading Room. This year abatement came, when by removing the Busi- ness School to quarters on the third floor, the space of the Reading Room was increased by exactly half its size. This double space now provides a spacious room, well equipped in every manner to serve the busy students. Properly supplied with light, both natural and artificial. Its walls are decorated with pleasing tints and restful to the e.ye. This new and pleasant Library Room has been one of the great advantages to the students of this year and will confiinic so to be. Other minor changes, too, ' ere made in file Iniilding. All of them to add greater usefulness or increased beauty to the individual halls concrrned. But not all the changes have come within the buildings. The ciiiniuis has also put on a different npiiearancc. Tlinugb still in an unfinisbrd state, i|uit(! obvious changes have been going on. Tlie first to note is that the western por- tion of it, so long a desolate field, has now been carefully prepared fur a beauti- ful lawn and already begins to show forth its sod of beautilul green. Hence- forth it will be well-kejit and beautiful. Designs for beautifying uth plants and shrubbery have been drawn for it by a landscape gardener and accepte! by the institution. The aim henceforth will be to de e!op aciordiug to a sys- tematic scheme. Tlicugh this will of necessity recjuire time and money ta complete, it is the proper beginning of a system that might long ago have been pursued. So as the years go by, the visiting alumni Mill from time to time lie greeted by additional marks of progress on the campus that will tend to en- dear their Alma Plater to them. In order to get a clear field for this i)lan necessitated at least one radical THE MAPLE LEAP change. In former years when the first buildings were erected, and the pros- pects of the college were not so large, a smaller quadrangle had been planned. And thus it happened that the older dormitory, now known as East Hall had to be removed. So after due eousideratiou, it was consigned to a contractor to be deported to a new foundation. It soon began to prepare to make its trip Its foundations gi-adually were destroyed and its weight was rested upon the strong jack-.screw. And finally it was pronounced " loaded " . But alas, it l)roved a bulky load. Vainly did the cables strain to pull it from its er.stwhile resting place. They coaxed and wheedled it. But it refused to move. And stubbornly persisted until the winter made its will be law. Thus it gained a respite. But wlu ' ii the gentler zei)liyrs wokt-, a stronger force with al)ler hitch took it in tow. Now with a slow but steady speed she gradually went forward though jeluetantly. At last there came a day when her last inch had cleared the campus confines. And now this building first in time and most useful in its day, rests on a foundation all its own on the north side of College Avenue, op- posite and facing the campus. With this building removed, the campus will be graded, dri -eways will be laid out. walks be put down and the ground will be planted with trees and shrubbery. Sites for later buildings will be reserved. So in due course of time, there will therefore appear other and significant changes that will be the .signs of the material progress of the institution. Nor will, with these added advantages for usefulness, the element of beauty be wanting. As then we take this retrospective look and recount in these brief lines, the important changes %vrought in this short interval of time, we naturally wonder what the future has in store for Goshen College. In thought we can project ourselves into the future and see upon this same campus an institution larger in its physical content, increased in its facilities, and stronger in its departments of instruction. The empty spaces waiting for the new buildings will then be filled. Increasingly larger classes will issue forth from out its halls, to carry its ideals into life and its active pursuits. Its name and fame will reach to many places where it is now unknown. But in its prosperity we trust it will never lose sight of its ideals of sei ' vice for the good and kind, nor its loyalty and devotion to duty and truth. For the real institution is not the out- con- cretely expressed in buildings and stone, but is bound up in its ideals of the heart and to properly accomplish its end, these ideals must be interwoven into the finer fabric of heart, power and life. — D.

As professor of fCnglish he has ample opportunity to expoimd upon that " great poetry " which is " universal in its appeal, " because it " illuminates " one ' s mind on " lofty aspirations " and " high ideals. " Discussions in room ten are often lively and fresh air is always abundant. Not infrequently does he make quiet expeditions into the reading room. At such times the riots are quelled and the hum of industry is again heard for every one knows that when that smile all tlie way roinid the world, is laid off he means business. A fine man, a worthy friend, one whom we all prize highly, is our verdict. DANIELS. GERIG. A. B.. Registrar and Professor of German Our registrar is a man of dignity and decision. He can intelligently discuss any subject which the student maj bring up and do it in such a way that makes you see that he is right and you are wrong.

Professor of Greek, Latin and French Tlie oalm, serene look on Prof. Zook ' s face immediately suggests a wise and liriulfot mind. His many years of close contact with the influences of class- icism have given him a certain air of culture and refinement characteristic only of those who have delved deep into the learning of the past. His per- sistent efforts in his own research after truth have developed in him the art of patience, so that he is very sympathetic and longsuffering toward the meanest student. JONATHAN M. KURTZ, A M. Professor of Physical Sciences Prof. Kurtz will lu ' lp you if you are in need of general information. If it is for a debate see him and you win. He is a scientist but is a booster in every department of the college. His smile and congenial personality have made him the stvident ' s friend, lie takes great interest in the work of the literary societies and makes all iiecessarv arrangements for the lecture course even to the minute details. IRWIN R. DETWEILER. A. B. Professor in Bible " Individuals are remarkable not in spite of what they do but because of what they do. " In the deep undercurrent, imseen liy the observer, many th ings are [)ut into the motion of the stream. Ijittle is known of this under- current but we iind a vast stream moving onward. Deep insight and discretion make good judgment. Nothing superficial or tugitive, but deep-seated and basic are the products of this mystical thinker. GEORGE D. BIVIN, Ph. D. Principal of the Normal School, Professor of Philosophy and Education Dr. liivin has I ' .roiiiised to leuil us liis friendliness for only one year. Dur- ing tins year, in response to his oft repeated request that we, " Catch this, " we have discovered a striking adaptability, and an unlimited interest in per- sonalities. He is a busy man who can still be a friend to the discouraged student, a professor whose field lies in the study of abnortiialities, a " preacher of righteousness, " and a I ' ll. 1)., who will condescend to lighten the load of the patient .ianitor.

He has specialized in Botany and one needs onl - to visit his laboi ' atory to Ite convinced that there is something of interest in that field of nature. " It all depends on the view i)oint you take, " is 3!i ' . Witmer ' s philosophy and in a calm, deliberate manner he shows his students .just how this is true. AMOS S. EBERSOLE.

He visioned forth the patriot ' s dream That men tight for aiul die. He sat, as he wrote, in his one lone room. And ever and again his eye Roved the window through, past the heights of stone To his one square yard of sky. Transplanted far from his native haunts. On the virgin soil he stood, Where never a hill or streandet was. Nor ever a glimpse of wood. And there on the prairie lay a pool. On its bosom heaven glowed, And out of its shallow depths there ])loomed A thousand flowerets gold. The l)lue of the water — the golden glow — The calm of the sunset hour. Like an arrow leapt to the poet ' s soul With a healing, quickening power. He strove as he stood i)i the mystic spell To carve it in lasting art. " Ah no, " cried the world, " no more of this, ' Tis not from the poet ' s heart! " So back to his basement home he went. And back to his bit of sky. To dream once more the heroic dreams That men fight for and die : ( tiice more to sing of woods and streams. Of hills, and mountains high — To sing of life as he saw it there In his one square yard of sky. Page T v e 11 t y-s i .x CLASSIS Page T- ' ent y-s even Page Twent y-n i n e Til K .MAPLE LEAF s. K.

The qualities of a student, an athlete, a debater and a social en- tertainer are found in him. He is a leader aninnfr the students. CHRISTOPHER J. GERBER An industrious and ambitious Canadian. Mr. Gerber has a fine physique and is a good athlete. In society he is a good mixer and always plays his part. His dramatic temperament makes him a fine reader. When he goes canvassing every body in the community wants his book. In his studies he sets his mark and then overcomes the obstacles.

GERIG With almost unlimited power and vigorous d( termination, he assumes his many tasks with the spirit of an enliehtened despot of the eighteenth century. In athletics, he holds his own; intellec- tually he is wirning laurels and in society he is " the man of the hour. " Although Ben has im- bibed the spirit of democracy, we bespeak for him a " coronation " in the years to come. FRANK ( ' . HOIIT Hoosier poet? Well, however that may be, the suggestion is well founded. Socially he is not very aggressive, but thoroughly responsive and perfectly congenial. He is not given to much talk, but spends many hours in absorbing thought. If he is too occupied with study to attract popu- lar attention, he must not be overlooked; for some day, we shall congratulate ourselves be cause this seholar-poet-artist was a member of our class.

As say the cynics of a certain school, And sages grow more sad in their advancement, Then folly in the wisdom of the fool.

Secreta Hanna Reed. Treasurer LONG before the members of this class were aware of the knowledge of the other members of the group, a youthful Iniblilmg enthusiasm was massing itself for one mighty eruption, which in the fall term of 1915 suddenly burst forth in an awe-inspiring uprising of class spirit and a certain tenacity not only brushing aside the hindrances before them but also at the same time demonstrating the truth of their class motto " Resurgam. " This class is he largest in the history of the institution numbering sixty- five. They have made their influence felt in and about the college not only on account of their number but also because of their strength. High ideals, noble aspirations, clear mindedness and sane judgment are characteristic of tile class as a whole. Tliese are thoroughly tempered with wit and liumor which are shown in tlu ' social activities of the class. This class has made great progress liecause of its feeling of friendship and co-operaticn. This was shown by the loyal support given by each member to the various activities. Xo wonder the " all wise " Sophs were sui-prised in debate and the lirawny -Juniors in basket-ball. In spite of the many well-merited snubs of being " Fresliies ' " they have been able to prove themselves above such trifling matters and have shown their ability to rise much higher in aspiring for knowledge, wisdom and all vir- tues. The greenness, which others claimed to lie so very characteristic of them last fall, has disappeared now to such an extent that any one can easily distinguish them from the natural scenery. Hence with this satisfaction in mind, they all rise with one accord to master and en.ioy the higher and better things of life. Yet tliese are only the beginnings of their motto " Kesurgam. " With sucli bright prospects we anticipate that from these ranks, worthy and efficient men and women will come who can truly announce to the world that " Resur- gam " has changed to " Snrrexi.

Showalter Treasurer Tlio president of our class, Ezra Deter, is deserviiif; of tlie distinction. He is a man of affairs whether in classroom or society and is jienerally the leader in a movement. In nineteen-fifteen he graduated from the commercial depart- ment. Although he comes from the neighborinf! state on the west he shows a culture that is far removed from the " ■ Vild West " . The best riark to indentify him is his laugh. This is very musical and the variations are of so many kinds that one is likely to attribute the jierformance to a flock of migratorv birds. Grace Hostetler, secretary of tlie class of ' l(i, came to us after one year of high school work at KIkliart, rndi;ina. Though foinicrly a lluckeyo, she is now a lloosier even though her friendship lias gone lieyond the limits of Indiana. Her alto d.ice is ;in asset of importance to any musical or ganization.

Page Fifty-one THE MAPLE LEAF Here is au ideal stiulent. Whether early or late he is " al ways on the job. ' ' Not l).y parading his ability but by doing his tasks in a quiet way, Daniel Hostetler wins the respect of all. He is an indispensible part of every male quartette and when mixed quartettes are planned he is generally on the list of eligibles. His " basso " ' voice is able to go so low that it strikes the heart. In song or story he wins his glory. A smile, rosy cheeks, courteous manners and a dignified ap- pearance — such are the marks of this maiden from the mcmn- tains (?) of Holmes County, Ohio. Although she is not dom- ineering, her studious habits have won the respect ami ad- miration of her classmates and teachers. She never fails to do her part in social affairs but culture and refinement are in separable from her life. Her pleasant look banishes all thoughts of anger, malice or hatred and thus " sunshine " is not lacking where Vesta Miller is found. From that ancient town of Waterford, there came to us one of the brilliant members of the class of ' 16. Karl Kaser is a clear-eyed, level-headed, self-respecting o-entleman. He has an air of culture and an agreeable disposition. He is not a book-worm and takes his part in the real issues of life. As we look through the horoscope into the future, we see a successful career before him. From our neighboring country Canada, there came to the " laud of the free " an ambitious member of the class of ' 16, Nancy Ramsyer. After imbibing the spirit of freedom and service for others, she expects to go back to her homeland to lift the fallen and i-elieve the oppressed. Her serious out- look upon life is not without its optimistic side. The world is not as good as it might be and it will soon be better is her view and pliilosopliy. Mr. Nunenuikor has again verified the fact that plivsical greatness is not essential to success. From a farm in tlie central part of Hlinois, he brought with him to (Joslieu tlie sterling qualiticLS which have won for him the respect of all. The thoroughness which marks his work; his ability to prove that what he says; his firm determination; — all these comtjined with his jovial dis])Osition l)es] eak for Harvey a successful future. Page Fifty-two TUK : IA1 ' LE LEAF After taking her first year of high school work at North Lima, Ohio and her second in the Goshen high school, Esther Beed came to the college as a welcome member of the academy class of ' 1(5. She possesses both wit and beauty and these with her coiif i ' iiial nature have won for her many friends. Not given to stiuly only, but she is iirdiiiineiit in social affairs also. ' ' She can whistle, she can sing, She can do most anything. " Rosa Russell is one of the representativeis from the state of Illinois. In her four years at Goshen, she has not failed to. win the admiration of those who came in contact with her ' ' halo of snnshiiie. ' ' She is modest but very jovial and witty. Her favorite subject is literature. With an unflinch- ing determination she overcomes the difficulties that come into her path. ha ! Arthur Slagel took some of his work at Flanagan, Illinois, and some at the Bethany Bible school in Chicago. While in Chicago, he was a worker in the Home Mission. Fortune brought him here in time to graduate with the class of ' 16. As chairman of the song committee, he has made the class song unusually good. He has also been a booster for the " Maple Leaf, " as photographer for the " snaps. " His class work is ideal and he is a thorougligoiiig gentleman wherever vou find him. Uriglit, cheerful, kind and true; diligent in study and faith- ful to every trust, such are the characteristics of Stella Shoe- ii.aker. Although she was a member of the class of ' 13, she thought it was " more blessed to give than r eive " and so she entered the teaching profession at the close of her .lunior year. This year she came back with a greater vision for the future and tlius she became a member of the class of 19IC.. From among the hills of eastern Ohio, comes this quiet and modest maid, Ella Shoup. In her school work she has shown herself a lover and master of every line of work. .As assistant librarian, she has shown her ability, and love for order. We know her as a good-natured, honest student with just enough humor to make her a very agreeable asso- ciate. The class of 1916 is proud of her as its valedictorian. Page F i f t y - t h r e e THE MAPLE LEAF Kathryn Spiegle, " the wise lad) ' from the East, " came to the class of ' 16 from the Keystone state. She received her academic training at Goshen with the exception of her Junior year which she took at her home high school. Although some- what reserved she has shown the significance of the saying, " Still water flows deep. Pluck and common sense are her characteristics of outstanding prominence. The truth, that " jirodigal sons " usually return, is verified in the broad-shouldered youth known as Ora Stiver. He be- gan work in Goshen College Academy in the year 1910. Other interests afforded by farm life called him from the classroom. Later his business ability was shown in what is known as the Midget lunch counter. The selling of popcorn and ham- burgers evidently failed to satisfy this lad of activity. The academy class of 1916 is now fortunate in claiming Mr. Stiver as a returned prodigal. Only one glance into his swarthy countenance reveals a wealth of seriousness and de- termination. Amelia Wengerd came to us from the hills of Holmes Coun- ty, Ohio. There she had learned to love nature from many angles. Her industrious research finds complete satisfaction in the study of botany. She has a " knack " of making those about her hajipy and is interested in raising the standards of humanitv. CLASS SONG lldw liapjiy those days, when we first came to Goshen, How bright the hope that at some future day; Our English, Latin and Algebra mastered, " We would reach this goal, then so far away.

Althougli tlie Seiuors were iiuu ' h more experienced in debating, we were willing for a contest, in which we met our defeat. In inter-elass basket-ball, too, we were unfortunate ; yet we are not ashamed of our defeats. Aside of our activities we are proud of what we have contributed to the support of the " Maple Leaf.

A world ' of opportunities lies before us, and we mean to ascend tlie ladder of success, making our class of 1917 worthy of our College and our College worthy of her reputation.

Af- ter viewing the external apiiearances of these new-comers, the name seemed very appropriate, hut under their cover of apparent rusticity and stu- pidity there was hidden a variety of talents which was to he revealed later.

They are now a band of twenty strong, marching on towards the heights of intellectual achievements. As they advance they meet their " Marathons " and " Waterloos " continually and a number of them are even having terrific con- flicts with Caesar, but in spite of it all, they are spurred on by a guiding star, their motto, " Dare and Do. " The class is represented by jiersons from seven different states of the T. ' nion and even two provinces of the Dominion at our north. They have come from the north and the south, from the east, and the west and are now togetlier pre- paring for life ' s perplexing problems. They have not only sprung from so many different places, but through their achievements in science, nuisic, ora- tory, poetry and athletics they have also shown a great variety of intellectual abilities.

You can aw aj ' s tell the Fresbmeu and usually you tell them too much. On September 15, 1915, most of us arrived at Goshen College for the first time. From the north, south, east and west, we came, and even several from fair Canada. What emotions stirred within us as we entered Goshen College, and began to realize that amongst strangers would ' be our sojourn for a whole year. Registration day with all its mysteries aiul perplexities was successfully passed, and we started in to make our history at Goshen College. Our class was organized and consists of twenty-seven. A few, after a stay of several weeks, discovered that they did not like to study and returned home. We are beginning more and more to realize our opportiniities and are determined to make the best of them. Of course, we are not as wise as the Seniors, or the Juniors, or the Sophs; but we don ' t worry about that, we have higher aspira- tions than their wisdom. Our basket-ball team may be a .loke as far as skill is concerned, but we have the avoirdupois and the brawn and the rest will come with practice. Taken all together, we are a very optimistic bunch. We see a great future. We have high ideals and a determination to get only the best that Goshen College has for us. Page Sixty-one ■r : .■. THE Bible School of Goshen College eoiitimied its eonrses during ' the school year with great interest. The percent of the student body taking this work was larger this year than usual. The courses a re so arranged as to supplement the general training which the college ott ' ers, with a liberal amount of instruction in the iield of religion. The school aims to give all students an opportunity to secure a liberal knoAvledge of the history, literature and thought of the books of the Bible. It also aims to furnish the religicms motive that is so much needed in any vocation in life. There is nothing that can take the place of the Bible as a source of inspira- tion and motive. Many students leave home with a strong conviction to do right and aim to realize the early vision with v, hich their home training has blessed them. But in the course of four or tive years of hard study in tiie varions depart- ments of learning, they are turned to other pursuits in life, which in them- selves are worthy, but for them it means accepting a position in life that doi s not allow the fullest expression of personality. And some even turn to a life that is not legitimate. By taking one or more of tliese courses the stu- dent escapes nuich of the iiei ' iod of struggle that most pass through. The wiir- shipful attitude is not likely to strengthen with(nit some attention any more than interest in any subject will increas( without application. There is no department of the institution that is of more importance than this first because of the above stated reasons and second because this de- partment, as in all denominational schools is the means of contact with tlie constituency. In the minds of the larger portion of the constituency, the in- terest in the Bible department more than the interest in any other department determines the i|uality of work d(nie_in the institution. Whether this is the best method for estimating the value or work of tlie institution may be dis- puted but this does not change the situation. The future plans for this department are much larger than the present finances will permit, and the oidy thing that can jirevent, as we now can see, putting this larger iilan into operation is the finances. The door to a larger work is open and the men are available. We may put it even stronger and say the call has come to the College and the institution is responsible for meeting this larger opportunity. P a s e .s i X t N- - t li r e e THE MAPLE LEAF Page S i X t y - f o u I- " We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wondering by lone sea breakers. And sitting by desolate streams, World-losers and world forsakers. On whom the pale moon gleams; Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world forever it seems. " THEY say we are twenty-three, but we say we are many times that num- ber for while there are only twenty-three who claim membership with. us there are more than twice as many taking one or more courses in theory and in applied music as elective to their regular college course, not to speak of the large enrollment in the chorus classes. This year undoubtedly marks the greatest stride upward of any in the evo- lution of the Goshen College School of Music. Adequate equipment, a strong faculty, an excellent class of students, comprehensive courses and thorough work — these are the features which have raised the .standards and placed the work of this department on a par with that of the other departments of the College. The present standards of course were not attained in one year; they are rather the realization of ideals that have been in the minds of the direc- tors of the school of music for a long time. It is to the untiring efforts of these directors that the credit is due. This year for the first time has the school been supplied with a modern first class artist grand piano. For the first time has it had a post graduate teacher from a reputable conservatory, upon its faculty. The coming year will find a permanent faculty of three graduates from three of the leading conservatories of this country. All these have had several years of successful teaching. The courses are being revised and adapted to modern needs. Most of these courses will be accredited as College subjects. Hence the outlook for the School of Music is very favorable. The activities of the school are many and varied. Besides the lectures, les- sons and recitals of its own, it has imder its auspices several musical organi- zations two of which are deserving of special mention. These are the Phil- harmonic chorus and the Glee Club. The ( horns with an active membership of more than fifty, meets under the direction of Prof. Ebersole in regular weekly rehearsals, for the purpose of studying vocal masterpieces. During the year the following public renditions Page Si.xty-flve THE MAPLE LEAF Page Sixty-six THE MAPLE LEAF were given and were enthusiastically received by large audiences: " The Mes- siah " (Handel), soloists, Marjorie Dodge Warner, Mabel ( ' orlew, Worths Faulkner and Marian Greene; a piano recital by Viola Cole of Chicago; " St. Paul, " (Mendelssohn), soloists, Lillian French Kead, John T. Read and Prof. Ebersole; a special piano recital by Prof. Dunkelberger of the piano depart- ment, and a program of selected choruses, quartettes and solos. The work of this organization is especially commendable because of the good music and musical talent it brings to the college community. The work of the Gless Club this year, also under the direction of Prof. Eber- sole has been the best in its history. Weekly rehearsals were held and good musical numbers were studied and memorized. Concerts were given at the fol- lowing places : Cosperville, Topeka, School House No. 10, New Paris, Elkhart, Goshen, Oswego and Goshen College. The C ' lub Quartet, as well as the Club, assisted in numerous programs, such as commencements, and social functions. Throughout the year, the conduct of every fellow was such as to bring only the highest praise from the director and from the people for whom concerts were given. Friendships have been formed that will have a lasting influence for good in the life of every member. ] lary Thornton, formerly a student of Elkhart High School, entered Goshen College as a music student. She was a graduate of the three year nuisic coiu-se (1915) and this year completes the piano diploma course. During her four years within these halls she has exhibited an unusual abil- ity not only as a student but also as an efficient instructor. Her love of the beautiful has also given tone to her expression, harmony to her thoughts, and rhythm to her every movement. Page Sixt ' -seven THE MAP1 K LEAF Page Kixtj ' -eiglit School of AcRlCUbTURE THE courses in Agriculture were first offered during tlie current school year. The work given, consisted of courses in Soils, Crops, Horticult- ure, and Dairy Husbaiidry. Necessarily, the work was seriously handi- capped because of the entire absence of laborator y facilities up to the liegin- ning of the spring term. Agricultural instruction as a part of the broad educational scheme of voca- tional education has been insistently demanded not only by a large part of the constituency of the College, but also by many of the citizens in and around Goshen. The enrollment dm-iug tlie year was not large. The lack of facilities for- bade the accommodation of large nnndiers. But, a hopefnl sign has been noted, viz: that the spring term ' s enrollment is more than twice as large as was the fall term ' s enrollment. The aim of the School of Agricultiu ' c will be to study the many jiroblems of the farm in a strictly scientific manner. This scientific attitude toward farm problems is absolutely essential. No farm practice can be engaged in intelli- gently unless it is in harmony with scientific and natural laws and principles. The tilling of the soil, the feeding of plants and animals, disease in its rela- tion to all organic life, the mechanics of the farm, farm production and farm management; all, rest on scientific principles. The School of Agi-ieulture will attCTupt to relate this scientific knowledge to home life and farm practice, as far as possible. Whenever it is possible, students will be encouraged to apply principles, laid down in the class-room, to actual farm problems. A limited number of students will be encouraged to carry on home-pro.ject work in connection with class instruction. During the coming school year, the entire basement of Science Hall Avill be used for the laboratories of the School of Agriculture. A large Soils labora- tory, a commodious Crops and Horticulture laboratory, and well-lighted Dairy lal oratory are all, being e(|uipped with modern equipment. If vain our toil We ought to blame the culture, not the soil.

In their uiiassiiiniug- luauner they have been active and busy dviring- the past year. " P xcelsior " has not only been their motto in name, but in actual practice. At the very be- g-iuniug of the fall term it was apparent that they were organized for serious literary work. All the young women of the Academy Senior Class of ' 15, who returned to school caught the Vesperian spirit and became members of the Society. Still others joined the number until its memberhsip had increased more than two-fold. All worked enthusiastically and many have shown a marked improvement in the quality of their work. The Vesperians have a diversity of talents and these were cultivated by means of the programs which were varied, interesting, and educational. The problems and situations of our own and foreign countries were studied. Questions of the day were discussed in debate. Vocal, violin, and piano numbers were important features. The Vesperian cartoonist portrayed both college and national life. At one meet- ing, three of the leading magazines held a conference to discuss their aims and the problems which they have in common. The Shakespeare Ter-centennial was observed by a discussion of Shakespeare ' s principle characters and the rendition of " Macbeth " . The tie which binds Vesperians together is beautifuUj ' expres.sed in the following lines comi)osed l),v an alumnus of the College and a loyal Vesperian: VESPERIAN SONG Hy Francps Kb!T.sole Kuikey List to the echoes from near and far, See the first beam of the westering star; ' Tis the twilight time at the close of day, ' Tis the happy hour when the breezes iday. Chorus — Oh, Vesper bells! Our hearts unite. Our cares dispel, aur hopes make bright; Vesperians all, though far we roam We hear thy call — our welcome home. Oft through the mazes of toil and fear, Clear o ' er the lowlands of ebbing cheer t!omes the ringing tone of thy clarion voice. Comes a hai)py thrill as it bids " Rejoice " . Ne ' er in the years that will come and go Can we forget thee, or deaf to thee grow; Like a gladsome song will thy chime still be, With its swelling notes turning thoughts to thee.

This soon became appai ' ent to the new men for fifteen of them cast their lot to win with the Auroras, Th private programs were varied. During the first two terms thirty-eight addresses, six debates, and a number of musical selections, readings, impromp- tus, and parliamentary law drills were given, A mock trial, a Day in the House of Representatives, and a sp.ecial .Music and (Iratcry program were also given. The Vesperians attended the last of these. The society participated in three pulilic programs during the fall and win- ter terms — two with the Avons and OJie with the Vesiicrians. The first of these (September 24) consisted of numbers pertaining to the l]uro))ean War. The second (November 5) presented a Day in the National House of Repre- sentatives when the Hobson Amendment to the Constitution was under con- sideration. The third (January 7) was on the great crises in American his- tory. The work with the Avons and later with the Vesperians proved mutu- ally congenial and helpful. Since the time when the Auroras inaugurated the plan at Gcshen College of doing extension work, seven programs have been given. These included debates, music and readings. These programs were rendered in the nearby towns and vicinity. On the night of December third, the Auroras with the Avons motored to Shipshewana where they presented a program on National Prohibition. Altogether the year has bern a verv busy one. In addition to the regular programs and other v ork outlined, eleven members appeared in the inter- class and seven in the inter-collegiate debates, Tv.o also jiai ' ticipatcd in the peace contest. The Aurora Hall was re-tinted in butlf and window shades to match were suj plied. This has impi-oved the home very materially. The large lecture room in the new Science Hall, which is being equipped by the societ.v, is Hear- ing completion. The lights at the entrance have been installed. Thus with added equipment the outlook is good for a profitable aJid bright future.

VERSATILITY coupled with efficiency is indeed a happy combination. The true college education includes a wider scope than the mere knowl- edge gained from poring over text-books. While the information thus obtained is greatly to be desired, the man who devotes his time exclusively to a study of the past is narrow and limited in his ideas. He must also know the present world, and he must be able to express his opinions to others. The primary object of the literary society is to broaden the interests and ac- tivities of the student. This is accomplished through various methods. In the Avon Society the effort has been made to introduce programs of current or historic interest. The various problems of the day have been dis- cussed, such as child-labor, the woman movement, the negro question, and prison reform, as well as subjects relating to art and science. Aside from the direct intellectual benefit received from these programs, the participants become accustomed to public speaking, and ' develop the faculty of expressing their thoughts readily and clearly. In our modern age, we hear the fact deplored that too little attention is being given to the training of women in the art of home-making. Depart- ments in Home Economics have recently been established in all our leading educational institutions. When this department was added to the curriculum of Goshen College, the Avon Society proposed to further the cause of home- training by furnishing the apartments given over to the study of this course, with all the model ei|uipment. making it modern and up-to-date in every respect. Thus, when we have a development in the cultural field, combined with a training in what is commonly considered woman ' s " natural sphere, " we may consider our modern woman as having at least a fair start toward a well- rounded education.

Stutzman, THE Adelphian Literary Soeiety has had a varied hi.story full of pro- gress and achievement. It had its inception in the ( ' . M. A. Debat- ing club which was organized on Dec. 13, 1899 as a result of the divi- sion of the old Ciceronian Debating Club. On June 11, 1908, the name was changed to Adelphian. But the change of name did not vary the continuity of enthusiasm and earnest individual effort. There has always been in the Society, a spirit of loyalty and fraternity. From its first inception the organization has carried forward the spirit of progi-ess and its o n motto, " We learn to do by doing, " has characterized its advancement during the seventeen years of its existence as a part of the development and progression of the school life and spirit of the college. The past y,ear has been but a continuation of this spirit. The standard of work has been high both in private and public programs. Each private pro- gram opened with an impromptu followed by a program about forty minutes long. Among the nunders were the following, addresses, debates, book re- views, octettes, parlianientaiy drills, jol.c contests and instrumental music. Several of the progran:s v, ere in the form of contests such as address or ora- tion contests. One of the most interesting programs of the year was given on November 8, 1915, entitled, " How it is done in Goshen. " This was a very realistic reproduction of cne of the regular meetings of .the Goshen City Council, demcnstrating its wfirkings. On the evening of November 19, a very successful conjoint public program was given by the V ' esperian and the Adel- phian Societies entitled, ' " The Rockefeller Foundation. " It consisted of an ex- position of its founding, its purpose, and the work which it had already ac- complished. The presentation also involved an impersonation of the chief characters of the foundation. Other public programs were rendered on " Henry Ford, " The Renaissance in Asia, " " Turning the Searchlight on America, " and other subjects. Society spirit was stimulated and ojiportunity for practice given by, several programs which the .society has gi cn in sur- rounding communities during the past year.

It was interesting to note the development of individuals, more marked in some than in others, but evident in everyone who honestly tried to make his contribution to the success of the work of the Society. The inter-class debates, given under the avispices of the Academy Literai-y Societies, showed good work on the part of the debaters, and much interest in them was manifested by the student liody. The Junior-Senior debate was given on January 1 , I ' JKJ. The question de- bated was, " Resolved, That labor organizations promote the best interests of the working-man. " The Juniors, Don Kaser and Sadie Speicher upheld the affirmative, while the Seniors, IIarve.y Nunemaker and Ella Shoup, presented the negative. The .judges, T ' rof. Kurtz. L. E. Blanch and J. N.

The purpose of the organization was to secure Ijooks whieh were of special interest and hel]) in literary The present organization is similar to the early one. The association is composed of the members of the six literary societies of the college. Besides the officers of the organization the important working body is the book com- mittee. The mend ership of this committee consists in one member from each literary society and a chairman from the facility. The fluids are o ' ltained by appropriating a fixed amount of the initiation and membership fees of each literary society. The early aim of the association has been broadened during the last twelve years. Books of general interest are now chosen and the suh.iects range over a large field. Books on philosophy, religion, sociology, natural science, useful arts, fine arts, literature, and history are being added to the library through the association. During this year about one hundred volumes li i c been added to the lilirary through the Students ' Ijibrary Association. A number of these are aliial)le and ex])ensive works. The greatest number of books chosen this year were on the sul).ieets of religion, vocational training and sociology.

It assumes the responsi ' iility and , management of the inter-class and the inter-collegiate debates and of the local peace contest, and its membership consists of those who participate in those activities. The year has been a very busy one. Tlie lirst inter-clfiss del ate took place on the evening of November 12, when the Freshman and Sophomore teams debated the question, ' Resolved, that immigration should be restricted l)y an illiteracy test. " The Freshman team debated the negative side of the ques- 4ion. It consisted of Walter Oswald, Joe H. Yoder, Clayton Lehman, and Abel Snyder as alternate. Raymond Ilartzler, Frank A. Hutler, Orie B. Gerig, with Harold Render constituted the Sophomore team whicli debated the affir- mative side. The decision was two to one tor (he negative team. The Junior-Senior debate occurred on December 17, when the cpiestion was. " Resolved, that the Monroe Doctrine should be continued as a part of the foreign policy of the United States. " John IT. Warye, Frnest E. Ii!ler. Ar- chie D. Hartzler v ith W. A. Stoltzfus, rcpresenti)ig the Juniors, argiu-d the affirmative, while the negative was u} liehl by the Seniors, L. E. Blanch. S. E. Yoder, J. C. Meyer, with L. L. Miller as altei ' uate. The decision was two to one for the negative. Scarcely were the inter-class de ' iates crmpU ' ted, wlien prejiai ' ations were be- gun for the inter-collegiate contests, which were held on Ajjril 7th. The (|ues- tion was, " Resolved, that the United States should cease to maintain the Ion- roe Doctriiie. " The members of the affirmative team were A. 1). Ilartzler, L. E. Rlauch, J. ( " . Meyer, with W. E. Oswald as alternate, v hile the negative team consisted of 0. B. Gerig. E. E. Miller, J. N. Sunicker, with C. E. Leh- man as alternate. The affirmative team went to Mt. Morris College, Illinois, where it won by a two to one vote. The negative team debated at Goshen with a team from North Mancliester College, Indiana, and won liy a tumni- nious vote. Another important event was the Reace Contest held on Fel)ruai ' y 21. First place was won by B. F. Stoltzfus, whose sub.iect was, " Science and Interna- tional Harmony. " F. A. Butler won second place. His theme was, " The Night Page N i n e t y - o n e THE MAPLE LEAF Page N i n e t - t w o THE MAl ' LK LKAP of War; What of the Day ' ? ' ' Mr. Stoltzfus gave his oration at the Indiana Peace Contest at Bloomingtoii, Indiana, on April 7. In this contest, twelve colleges of the state participated. Mr. Stoltzfus won second prize ($50). From the work above described it becomes- evident that the year was one of hard work and progress. Goshen stands among the first colleges of its size in its oratorical work. Its students promise well in work of a similar nature in life ' s busy affairs. B. Frank Stoltzfus. Fcac! Orator ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION ROLL J. (:.

I- THE religious work among the stiuieiits of Goshen ( ollege rests largely on two organizations: The Young Peoples ' Christian Association and the Christian Workers ' Band. These organizations hold regular meet- ings. At these meetings the spiritual life of the student is emphasized. The entering into new environment and new experiences give rise to new difficul- ties in one ' s life. Whether this change is for loss or gain depends upon the result in character. It is the purpose of these organizations to see that the change means a development in the spiritual phase ; as our other organizations and activities, which emphasize the other phases of life. These religious organizations play an important part in developing the Chris- tian atmosphere which is so marked in this institution. This spirit of high ideals and morals is due to the common purpose of the student body; that of giving birth to and developing the genuine Christian Spirit. Those of our number who have left the student body and are engaged in the active service, testify that the power and inspiration which has meant so much to them, is due to the influence of the wholesome and uplifting atmosphere of Goshen College. One of the laws of growth is eMjiression; that a hich lies dormant and cov- ered must die, this is every one ' s practical experience. Through offering ave- nues for self-expression and the studying of needy fields of service, stronger lines for true service, as v. ell as more intelligent decisions are possible. Our association was fortunate this past year in having niCH who are inter- ested in active Christian work come to us and present the needs of the world. Among these were Mr. Rymer, State Secretary, and Mr. Reiehel, Traveling Secretary for the Students ' Foreign Volunteer Movement. The students also appreciate the assistance hich the members of the faculty have given, by de- livering addl-eisses which v ere cf vital iiitercst as weM as intluciitial for better and nobler living. The Y. P. C. A. work is divided into two departments — the young men and young women. Each of these organize Bible Study Classes, Mission Study Classes, also have charge of Devotional and prayer meetings. The in- terest is unusually strong in all these various activities, thus demonstrating that the students of Goshen College are eager to enlarge and eiiricli their lives by n-.ore fully realizing the ideals as found in Christ. rage Ninety-flve THE MAI ' LE liEAF a s c CO =-« in ?; J; S .. 53 _K V. — is ' -i ■ Page Ninety -six THE MAPLE LEAF DEVOTIONAL WITH all tile various phases of college life demanding the students ' of the spiritual life to that of the physical, mental, or social. All of time and attention, there is danger of sacrificing the development ' these may justly demand recognition in the student ' s disposition of his time, but some deserve more emphasis than others. Hence, it is necessary that he . have in mind a scale of values, founded upon the principle, " First things j first. " Thus the many activities and interests that demand his attention mayl be carefully weighed, and accepted or rejected, according a they contribute to the realization of a perfects development. g That the spiritual factor in character formation may receive tts due empha- sis, is the ambition of the devotional committee. With this end in view, pro- vision is made for weekly prayer and devotional meetings, in which oppor- tunity is given for the expression of religious thoughts and convictions. For the devotional meetings, subjects dealing with problems and standard ' s of student life, are chosen. Participation in the discussion is voluntary. Many have testified to the inspiration and help that one receives from these frank, spontaneous expressions of the inner lives of his fellow-students. THE CHRISTIAN WORKERS ' BAND THE Christian Workers ' Band is the organization which seeks to con-! serve the missionary spirit of Goshen College. Its motto is, " The Evan- ! elization of the World in this Generation. " Its work in the past year ■ has heeA to study both the home and foreign fields. The object of the organ- i ization is to cause every Christian student in deciding his or her life work to face the call to heme and foreign missions. It also seeks to have students to def- initely volunteer lor some special phase of missionary M ' ork. The regular meet- ing which is held every alternate Sunday morning has proven a great help to the many, students who wish to place their lives where they w ill be of the greatest use to their Master. A number have already volunteered for the for- eign field while others are planning to carry the gospel to their fellow-beings in the homeland. During the past year, the following were some of the important topics di.s- cussed pertaining to the home and foreign fields : Alaska, Labrador, Mexi- cans and Indians, the Mormons, the Mountain Whites of the South, the Negro Proljlem, the Condition and Needs of South America, The Rural Church, the Students Responsibility to the Home ( hurch, and the AVomen in India. Special addresses with an appeal for definite volunteering were as follows: " Why Devote My Life to Christian Service? " , by Prof. Detweiler; " The Character of the Volunteer, " by S. F. Coffman; and " Prospects for Christian Service in the Mennonite Church, " by President Hartzler. The officers of the organization are : President, J. N. Smucker ; Secretary- Treasurer, Mary Good; Program Committee, J. N. Kauffman, Ella Shoup, Bernice Lehman and B. F. Stoltzfus.

It serves a dual purpose. In the first place, extension work is a means of establishing the principles of the kingdom of God in the hands of men and women whose lives have never been touched by the spirit of the blaster. Second, it gives the students experience in active Christian work and brings them in contact with conditions and problems as they really are, not as they might be. This practical training is a valuable supplement to one ' s academic preparation for Christian service. Three j-ears ago last December the extension department of the Y. M. Cab- inet fir.st undertook to do aggressive work of this nature. Since that time a gospel teain has been sent out each holiday season. This year a team spent the Christmas vacation with the Barker Street congregation near Vistula, Indiana. Each member of the team was an amateur in his particular line of work, but all put forth honest efforts and definite workings of the Spirit were realized. Five souls were led to give their lives to ( hrist and one covenant was renewed. Lake Ganeva Camp Page Ninety-nine THE STUDENT COUNCIL President, Lloyd E. Biauch. Secretary, A ' ma B. Warye.

" Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every calendar month. The first session was called by Dean Whitmer on October 5, at which time an or- ganization was effected. The work is largely in the charge of three commit- tees: Student Conduct, Educational and Religious Life, and Affairs on and About the Campus. A number of things have been accomplished during the fall and winter terms. Under the auspices of the Council, Dr. Bivin gave an address to the men on how one should conduct himself in society. Mrs. Bivin gave a similar address to the ladies. A reception was held for Professor and Frs. Eliersole when they came to live in Goshen. A social was arranged for the short Bible term .students. Other matters such as attendance at Chapel, conduct in the dining hall, the use of certain property, and the placing of motorcycles and automobiles were attended to. Another phase of the work which the Council is doing and which promises well is the adoption of the honor .system in the examinations. Lloyd E. Biauch Jacob C. Meyer Aim?. R. arye Ernest E.

SOCIETY THE Chemical Society con.sists of studeuts, faculty and Alumni ho have done or are doing work in Chemistry ceyond the first year. The meet- ings are held once every month during the school year. The purpose of the organization is to discuss the latest developments in the pure and ap- plied science of Chemistry and other closeh ' allied scientific problems. During the past year, special consideration v.as given to the relation lietween Chemis try and the industries. The rapid advancements in this particular field have raised many interesting problems. Their solution concerns not only the sci entist from the standpoint of his profession, but is of fundamental imjiortance in the contributions made for the welfare of mankind.

Charles Reynolds Brown, lecturer on ethics at the University of Calif- ornia, once said, " It is not only consistent with a serious purpose but impera- tive for its full realization that wise and conscientious provision he made for recreation of the life forces through honest pleasure. " Goshen College does not participate in extensive intei ' -collegiate athletics but recreation and honest pleasure are afforded the students in the form of games where skill, brain and brawn are brought to a test ; where chance is elim inated and where a fine sense of chivalry is developed. Our athletic asso- ciation aims to provide recreation whereby the bodj ' is recruited not weak- ened, the mind made more alert not blurred, the moral nature kept clean and alive not dtiUed and blinded, and the religious nature augmented not violated or retarded. A few remarks on our athletic events follow : In season, basket-ball has been given considerable attention and inter-class teams of skill and ability develop fine form for the trophy tournament which occurs in January and February. The games this year were spirited and hotly contested by both Academy and College Teams. Loyal class support is given in these games. In a hard fought contest with the College Freshmen, the Col- lege Juniors became holders f the silver cup foi- this year. Probably more interest is taken in tennis tlian any otlier s|) )rt ilue perhaps to the par excellent courts, also the " co-athletic " nature of he game. Early in the morning persons may lie seen using or engaging tlie courts. Through the untiring etforts of the work M)iiiiiiittee two extra courts were made avail- able thus avoiding congestion.

But the earlier defeats i-esulted in a winning team for the last part of the season. Good sup|)ort was given to pitehei Lantz ; errors were an uncommon occurrence. The Winona game was a good one. The visitors remembering their defeat of last year, came to win which they did to the tune of 5 to 8. A gooil crowd witnessed the game giving the home team loyal support. The game with North Manchester which was i)layed May 20, resulted in a victory for Goshen 5 to 3. Lantz pitched his usual good game retiring ten men. lie received good support until the eighth inning v. hen two errors by Goshen men cost the three scores.

E SE B LL " I EAM One Hundred Sev SUMHIR SCHOOL i S C])00l The Summer School THK Sumiiu ' r School of Goshen ( ' oUege is one of the most wide-awake de- partments of the institution. The term continues for a period of twelve I weeks, during which time special attention is given to normal school work. However, regular college courses are also offered for tho.se who desire to make advance credits, as well as courses for High School students. The Summer Term of 1915 is deserving of special mention. On the opening week about one hundred and forty students registered for work in the normal, the College and the academic departments, the largest number of whom were normal students, and prospective teachers for the state of Indiana. Among the newer features of this term were the Domestic Science courses and the Model School. These were well supported and deemed a suc- cess by those who had registered for the work. A study of food production, food economy and preservation was made. The work was such as met the re- quirements of the State Board. In order that the students might have recreation, aside from their regular study, activities were planned which gave development in a literary, a relig- ious and a social way. The committees in charge were apiiointed by the fac- ulty who co-operate with the committees. The Literary Society, carried on under the name, " Country Life CUub, " gave fortnightly programs which were open to the public. Such program.s consisted of debates, essays, orations and music. The entire .student body, with the exception of a few, were enrolled as members of this organization! The religious life of the Summer Term was stimulated by the organization of devotional Bible Study classes, one for the young men and one for the young women. Both classes were led by members of the faculty who were especially interested in Bible study work, and therefore gave to the students their best religious ideals. A number of devotional meetings were also held each month, when special talks were given by faculty members and cit.y pas- tors. During the Summer a number of socials were held, in which everyone took part. These were conducted by the Country Life Club anil the committee on Social Life. Such times were thoroughly en.joyed by all and gave the students an opportunity to know each other in ways other than in the class-room. Athletics formed a large part of the recreation of the summer students. In weather which was favorable to outdoor exercise, the tennis courts and the baseball diamond were rarely deserted. The beautiful Elkhart river and the woods nearby, offer attractions to those who love the quietness and the beauty of natiuv. The path leading to the river dam was used many times in a day by such who took their exercise by walking. The general atmosphere of the Summer School of 1915 was such as was conducive to thorough work. A fine spirit of. enthusiasm and eo-operation pervaded the entire student body, which was a source of encouragement to both students and faculty.

Yoder Anna Voder Vermin Snuicker From the Viewpoint of an Alumnus AIjKTTER has eonie from the old College ealling for the viewpoint of an Aluiniuis. He befrins the task, not without a bit of pleasure for it means not only an exi)ressi in (if liis present thoughts and aspirations but also a peep into his yesterdays. A train of thoughts is awakened and the sleeping brain cells of memory begin their work of gathering material. The Alumnus usually looks upon his future as a bright, promising possibil- ity and his yesterdays are like a golden chain of events. It is the jiresent that is full of stern realities of life. Upon this he must pause a moment for re- flection in order that its real cliaracter may be discovered. When he looks out upon the world, he sees it as a great complexity. Years ago it seemed more like an institution that was waiting to become the bene- factor or perhaps the servant of any typically well prepared graduate of col lege. Today he is not disapiioiiitcil in the world. He does not feel that his c 11 e Hundred Seventeen THE MAF ' LE LP AP high hopes as a graduate were all visionary, but he sees that, in so many ways, the world is different from his earlier conception of it. Today, the world brings pleasure never dreamed of in the yesterdays and it has vexatious elements many of which were completely hidden in those days. The Alumnus iu his yesterdays did not know how much pleasure is to be gained from hard work in which real hardships must be encountered. He did not know that soul food is sometimes found in tasks that other could or would not do — tasks that were given to him because he would do them in spite of their uudesirability. He did not know that the doing of .some such tasks is of absolute necessity for the highest character building. In his yesterdays, he said, " I will never do work like that. I will prepare myself well so that I may hold a better job where there is less drudgery. " But as the yesterdays slipped away his observations of the world ' s doing convinced him that in the best .jobs there are often drudgeries and that the efficient man is he who is willing to perform those exa.sperating tasks. The most unpleasant discovery that comes to the Alumnus after graduation is that the people of the world, so many of them, are selfish, vain, untrue. To be sure he finds good and great lives all about him, l)ut the other type are far too plentiful. In the commercial and political nr d there is so much selfish grasping, so much competitive antagoni.sm. In the social world there is so much vanity and folly, so much utter leanness of soul. In the growing boys and girls there is so much wild unrest, so little tlumght of the best things in life. In alarm the Alumnus exclaims, " What is the world coming to? Must I, too, learn to contest for my rights by selfish grasping? Can I so far forget my college ideals that I will become vain and lean of soul? Will my children become so thoughtless of the best things in life as do the young children around me? It is worth while that I hold firm to my ideals? " The years roll on and the early todays of the Alumnus liecome yesterdays. The todays are still in the making. In his todays he sees a few hopeful fea- tures of the world ])ieture. While the masses of humanity are selfishly seek- ing vanishing pleasure and soul shriveling gain over their fellows, there are yet thousands upon thousands who are true to higher ideals. In every walk, there are high-born souls, God-made souls who are fighting for the moral and social betterment of the race. To mingle with this class and to- help in the campaigns for world improvement are the greatest joys of the Alumnus. He has a conception of success that is (lifl " Vreiit from that of the popular mind. Wiiy should the amassing of property he au ideal for success when it is only a small part of the world ' s need? To he able to live for the purification of the houic, foi- the moral uplift of the inassi ' s of lui-n, for the civic improve- ment of his coiiiiiuiuity, for the exaltation of the best in human character — this should be the test of success in any man ' s career. The memories of college days are to the Alumnus a source of never-ending .joy. He can feel today the old pulse of enthusiasm that came when great ideals were in the process of formation. His fondest ho|ies for the future are that one by one those ideals may find some foi-iii of realization, that he may One Hundred Eighteen THE MAPLE LEAF never turn back from his ideal of success and that, when his lamp of life is burning low, he may still be able to say, " I have not failed to keep my ideals of life. I have not bowed my knees to Baal. " In the todays of the Alumnus there is another thought that often claims his attention. It is one in regard to the future of his college — the great mystery tomorrow. Sometimes there come to him suggestions, from some person whose college yesterdays are far removed ' in the past, that the College is changing, that her old ideals ai-e being ignored, that she has " Lost her first love. " But why should an Alumnus become alarmed by a suggestion that is so unworthy of his own ideals? Has he not learned to face the facts of his environment with the conviction that the salt of character can purify the evils of society? Can he not with the same confidence have faith in the leaders of the old Col- lege that they will be true to the sacred ideals of the past? It would be a mark of pessimism in any Alumnus to complain of the fact that the obi College has changed. Should not the College change? Should not tile Alumnus change? Is it noth rather a mark of progress for an indi- viduHl or an institution to change? No doubt the old ideals still have a place in the heart of a changing institution but they are clothed in new garments, are mingled with new ideals that are in accord with the changing world. The typical Alumnus of today believes in the old College. He rejoices to hear of her changes that announce her steady growth. He believes in Goshen College as a father believes in his growing son — that a greater future awaits her, that the old ideals cannot die because of the life of the institution is wrapped up in brothers and sons of the Alumnus. He expects the College to grow but not without his support and prayers. He hopes to see the day when an endowment fund worthy of the institution will have been raised by the help of his fellow Alumni and the graduates of tomorrow. It is not too much to say that the real Alumnus of Goshen College will not be satisfied until he sees that ideal reached. — J. W.

The one was tall and lean with red face, light hair and blue eyes, typical of the race and the other short and heavy-set with quick movement and a face that showed resolute purpose. The fir.st had " done his fifteen hots " (spent fifteen years j in India and the other was a gritifin ( raw recruit) that had come in on the S. S. Salsette of the P. 0. line, .just three months before and was now spending his first few months in India getting first impressions with his senior partner in camp. Headquar- ters were eighty-five miles away at Raipur and the nearest railway station forty-two miles at Dhamtari. " Jolly good .shakeup the Germans give us at Jlons, wa.sn ' t it? " was the query of the first. " Yes, indeed and la.st week ' s mail brought me word that my brother had died of wounds. " " Hard world this and out here with no one to tell about your troubles. Ill tell you old top 1 wouldn ' t have minded it so much if I could have gone into a church-house some where and attended a funeral, but there seems to be nothing of the sort in this country. " The senior Engli.sh official leaned over in his chair and called for his servant to bring a glass of soda and proceeded to enlighten his younger partner as follows : One Hundred T w e n t y - f o u i THE MAI ' I.K LKAP " That ' s just where you are niistakeii. You know wlicu I was here first I thoug:ht Diueh the same way but as I have been here longer I have learned dif- ferently. You know just as I had finished Cambridge at home and found out that I had passed my competitive examination for the Indian Civil Service I had come to the conclusion that all this fuss about religion was tomTny-rot and might as well be left go. Well when 1 got to this country first I was put on duty as a non-commissioned fanune officer down here in this very district. I saw sights those days that I won ' t tell you about as you might think me stretching things a bit too far. I hauled corpses together by the ox cart load and burned them. I had fifty goats tide up and had them milked daily to save starving babies. 1 traveled up and down this district and gave out the govern- ment ' s money and saved people from starving until when the famine was over- they would fairly tumble over each other to " salaam " me for saving their lives. Tn all that time of trouble I came to the conclusion there was no God. " One day I saw a white man coming to my camp and found he wasn ' t at all a bad sort. He was a missionary and I soon saw he was just the man I wanted as an assistant in the work that was proving too much for me. The Deputy C ' ommissioner in Raii)ur sanctioned the appointment and from that day until the famine ended 1 found that fellow was a Christian of the kind my mother used to be back home in England. Wiicu the famine was dver a lot of tiie people we had worked with, applied to tiiat missionary to become Ciiristians.

They have schools, farms, leper-asjlums. industrial shops, hospitals, etc., etc., and everything is permeated with that same spirit I saw in that first missionary. Many of their missionaries come from a school they call Goshen College, the motto of which they tell me is culture for service. " Nothing like actual demonstration in this old world. When I saw what Christianity was doing for these people and how many less were the arrests in the district where those missionaries worked, I made up my mind there was something in it. To be honest, old top, I believe if I had it to do over I would have come to this country as a missionary. When it comes to the end, I would like to have the satisfaction of those missionaries and know that a lot of peo- ple here had become Christians because 1 bad tried to tell them how.

Some Reasons Why People Disagree IN " The Autocrat of the Breakfast Table, " by Oliver Wendell Holmes, we find the following analysis of human nature. ' ' It is not easy at the best for two persons talking together to make the most of each others thoughts, there are so manj ' of them. (The company looked as if they wanted an explanation). " When John and Thomas for instance are talking together, it is natural enough that among the six, there should be more or less confusion and mis- apprehension. (Our landlady turned pale: — no doubt she thought there was a screw loose in my intellect, — and that involved the probable loss of a boarder. Everybody looked up. I believe the old gentleman opposite was afraid I should seize the carving-knife ; at any rate, he slid it to one side, as it were, careles.sly.) " I think, I said, I can tnake it ]ilain to iicnjamin Franklin here, that there are at least six personalities distinctly to be recognized as taking part in that dialogue between John and Thomas. Three Johns, 1. The real John; known only to his Maker. 2. John ' s ideal John; never the real one, and often very unlike him. 3. Thomas ' s ideal John; never the real John nor John ' s John, but often very unlike either. Then there are three Thomases. 1. The real Thomas. 2. Thomas ' s ideal Thomas. 3. John ' s ideal Thomas. " Only one of the three Johns is taxed; only one can be weighed on a plat- form balance ; but the other two are just as important in the conversation. Let us suppose the real John to be old, dull and ill-looking. But as the High- er Powers have not conferred on men the gift of seeing themselves in the true light, John very possibly conceives himself to be youthful, witty and fascin- ating, and talks from the point of this ideal. Thomas, again, believes him to be an artful rogue, we will say; therefore he is, as far as Thomas ' s attitude in the conversation is concerned, an artful rogue, though really simple and stu- pid. The same conditions apply to the three Thomases. It follows, that, until a man can be found who knows himself as his maker knows him, or who sees himself as others see him, there must be at least six person engaged in every dialogue between two. Of these, the last important, philosophically speaking, is the one that we have called the real person. No wonder disputants often get angry, when there are six of them talking and listening all at the same time. " (A very unphilosophical application of the above remarks was made by a young fellow answering to the name of John, who sits near me at the table. A certain basket of peaches, a rare vegetable, little known to boarding houses, was on its way to me via this unlettered " Johannes. " He appropriated the three that remained in the basket, remarking that there was just one apiece for him. I convinced him that his practical inference was hasty and illogical, but in the mean time he had eaten the peaches.) " I prefer just to give you a taste of tiiis, hoping that your appetite will he so One Hundred Twenty -seven thp: .maple leaf sliai ' peiietl that you will soon take a full meal at The Autocrat ' s Table. However, 1 wish to assert that wheu Johu and Thomas have a discussion there are involved, not only six boys, but eighteen of them. Let us consider one of the six — the Keal Thomas. There is tirst the Present Eeal Thomas, seen from some angles, he is a boy grown large; from others, one notices the promise, and often the attitudes of a man. Though iirimarily. lie is a complex of abounding life which ever seek.s expression in action. Secondly, there is the real Thomas of the Past, with his pretty cui ' ls and his charming fondness for play houses, and hobby-horses. Thirdly, we have the Eeal Thomas of the Future, with his deep-laid plans of a grand life of usefulness — plans that his own chum rareh ' susjiects and that Thomas himself scareeh ' dares own as more tlian day-dreams. Put they up- lift him, and mark him as in a measure divine. Let us now consider another of the genial Dr " s. si.K boys — Thomas ' s Ideal Thomas. There are three of these also. Thomas ' s Ideal Thomas used to be very large and important. He was, in fact, the center of created things. The uni- verse turned about him. A grasping egotist, his head almo.st completely filled his mental horizon. J- ut as he grew and grew and got some bumps and hard knocks he began to shrink quite noticeabl.v. And so he became Thomas ' s Pres- ent Ideal Thomas of almost normal size. He has learned that competition leads to revelation. He knows now that it was to eas.v excel in his formei- little home circle. Witii admiralile furtitude. he is filling his place in the niche assigne l him by nature. Among the ranks o f the strong, he even looks up- ward at times to his superiors. As he thinks of his ideal Thomas of the P iture, he feels less and less import- ant. He greatly widens his perspective by studying history; he contemplates the marvels of the microcosm as revealed in Psychology: he drinks at the Pier- ian Spring of the Muses and reads the gi ' cat thoughts of threcstoried intel- lects with skylights; he is swayed by oratory, inspired b.v the harmonies of sweet music, urged to achievenuuit i»y the captains of commerce, and looks through theolog.v, the microscope and the tclescupe out into the wondrous mac- crosm of his benevolent Creator. In com|iaris(in with these his ideal Thomas of tlu ' future approaches the vanishing jioint. 1 liH ( ' now referred to six Thomases There are three more: John ' s ideal Thomas: I, of the past; 11, of the present: III, of the future. " When John first saw Tommy he thought him an insignificant, odd sort of specimen, in the main to be suspected and ridiculed. But when Thomas, bo.v- like, asserted his rights and his opinions John came to tolerate him and later to respect and to like him. John ' s Present Tom is a pretty good fellow, and in some respects, quite a hero. To John ' s credit, let it be said that his Thomas of the Future is loom- ing up more and more in stature, in strength of character and in nobility of purpose. So we have nine Thomases, of course there are at least nine Johns, nuiking eighteen in all. No doubt our stiulents of uuithcmatics will be able to figure out some more. One H u n d 1- e rl T w e n t y - e i g h t THE MAPLE LEAF The} ' can hardly fail to note that Thomas ' s own idea of himself was an ever decreasing variable approaching zero as a limit; that is to say an infinitesimal. On the other hand, John ' s idea of Thomas was an ever increasing variable, suggpsting that much niisvinderstoo4 term infinity. Of course vice versa for John. Again, of course, much the same might be said of two girls. Just imagine Jane and Rose going a-shopping, each of the eighteen ti-ying to talk simultaneously and neither having half a chance. No wonder they come home resolved never to speak to each other again. Allow me now to mention a few of the reasons why people disagree serious- ly, under the caption, — Ditt ' ereuees in Ideals. In the early days in our country — and to some extent at present — a good man meant, in common parlance, a strong man, — a man of brawn who does heavy manual labor and is a lion in combat. In one of our western states, at the funeral of a young man, the father touched his massive arm and sobbed, " Oh, to lose such a son. lie could knock down a beef with that fist. " With our aesthetic and spiritual ideals, we naturally fall into disagreeuu ' nts with those who hold the former. In some university eireles, a strong athlete is lionized by a certain set, even though he fails in his studies. Other groups admire a sounil, well-stored mind in a healthy active body. Each class calls the other by an expressive name. Large classes of people, it seems to me, hold that an ideal ( ' hristian never shows anger or indignation either because of his pvyn petty .se ltishness or on account of great injustice or cruelty on the other hand. A Roosevelt has ideals which make him burn with indignation when the rich grow richer through corrupt practices and the poor are given oppression instead of a square deal. Those who hold to his ideals necessarily look upon the former classes as goody-goody sentimentalists, if not " namby pamby " Christians. The ideals of one class would make goodness so sweet as to be insipid and useless. They would not hurt a mad-dog even in order to save the life of a promising child. The ideals of the other class lead them to brave dangers and show righteous anger, when wrong is on the throne and freedom is enthralled ; or when human fiends make and sell slaves for filthy lucre. One class of people obeys the rules of etiquette, literally and slavishly, at whatever inconvenience and violation of common sense. Another class re- gards these rules merely as helps in expressing genuine goodwill and refined solicitude for the happiness and welfare of their fellows! These classes have rasping disagreements. When some parents teach their sons that it is wicked pride that jirompts one to black his shoes, or brush the hayseeds from his hat and coat — in short that all love of neatness and beauty is given us by the evil one, while others teach the opposite, people will suffer from misunderstanding. One of the most trying and unfortvmate kinds of misunderstanding among our people arises from different ideals of family government. Some parents have the far eastern ideal of the father as a patriarch who is to be revered and obeyed absolutely even in matters pertaining to life ' s chief- responsibil- One Hundred Twenty -nine THE MAPLE LEAF ities. The sons, imbibing the spirit of freedom and independence from Amer- ican histories, literature and life, assume that all have certain equal rights in the family. The father, in order to appear strong must play the role of absolute monarch. The sons, breathing the air of liberty and equality look on the father as a tyrant. He, not reading the same books and periodicals never dreams that he is looked upon as a typical George III. The pity of it all is that neither parents nor children realize the cause of their estrangement. Both would be shocked if their separate ideals of family life were clearly stated. So long as parents make no etfort. by reading, conversation, and asso- ciation to know the ideals that make constant appeal to their children, and the children make no attempt to appreciate the rich inheritance of noble ideals of their parents, the pathetic separation and dispersion of American families may be expected to go on. A family cannot well be an absolute monarchy and at the same time a democracy allowing a large measure of freedom and equality to each member. Another eastern ideal that is un-American is that of expecting children to follow the same occupation as their parents, whether fitted for it or not. In Switzerland, a certain family carves ornaments, another mend ' s shoes, etc., from father to son and grandson. In some of our states, all of a family farm, from generation to generation, regardless of the fact that some sons are crushed in spirit, ruined financially, and robbed of their birthright in way of the work that they could naturally have done better than anyone else. Variety of occupation is absolutely essential to the prosperity, happiness and usefulness of any class of strong people. The day is coming when chil- dren at thirteen will know themselves better in respect to their natural bent and vocation than most of us have known ourselves at twenty odd ; and the gain, economical and spiritual, will be beyond our fondest dreams, ilust the prevalent distrust of certain occupations, though honorable and essential to the community, necessarily continue? Certainly not; for under ideal con- ditions co-operation in finding and fostering the " best gifts " will be the keenest delight, both of the young and elders. In times past, the object of education was often assumed to be to atford the educated an escape from work. We are learning that its chief use is to reveal to each one the line of work for which he has the most talent, and to aid him in making a happy and complete success of his life-work. Remedies? Just a few at present. As intimated, a powerful means of lead- ing people to agree is to get them committed to the same plan and purposes. Since the world was young, even people of diverse temperament and charac- ter have been able to " get together " when interested in the same enterprise. This implies honoring others by taking them into our confidence. It implies respect for their opinions, confidence in their motives, and a mutual pledge of cooperation. Th is brings me to say that a fundamental requisite of agreement is a tying up to our convictions as to the demands of justice, and a sensitive regard for the natural rights of our associates. If there is one thing above others that I One Hundred Thirty THE MAPLE LEAP have observed among men of various elasses, it is tliat unjust dealing and underhanded scheming will, in the strong life-currents in America, promptly recoil on the head of the offender. Of prime importance too is deep sjnnpathy and broadmindeduess. Veiy con- monly disagreement arises from our not seeing things from the other fellow ' s point of view. So there is need of a generous soul, and wide knowledge of the interests, race-pre,judices, and vital experience of many classes of people. To this end the reading of up-to-date books and contemporary periodicals is mar- velously broadening. In fact, in our times, no one can be depended on to escape petty narrowness unless he is a discriminating and thoughtful reader and narrowness coupled with intensity is doubly dangerous. Conversation and association with many classes of earnest people cannot fail to be helpful. Personally, I have caught more of what Matthew Arnold calls " sweetness and light " at a dining room table, elbow to elbow with a dozen men from about as many states and countries, than from almost any other source that I can think of. It remains for me to close this homily with a mere reference to by far the greatest force that makes for agreement. You all expect me to say it is good will. Charity ever smooths out the ugly wrinkles in the looks of things. Whether in the joyous games of youth, or life ' s serious w ork, love is blind. It often transforms faults into virtues. Properly u nderstood, it includes jus- tice, truth and the sincerest concern for the best in life for all ; and so it is the Greatest Thing in the World. — D. A. Lehman.

" — Fannie Slruik The Science Hall H u n 1 r e (1 T ll i i t y - t h A Modern Poet TRUE literature is the expression of life through the medium of lang- uage. Whatever its form or character it is always a natural outgrowth of luuiian life. The nature, therefore, of any particular body of liter- ature is dei)endent ujion the eharaetei- of the people and of the age which it represents. The English litiTature of the Elizabethan Age is a striking illustration of the relation which exists between literature and life. The works produced during that period were of such high order because the age was in many re- spects a remarkable one. It was then that the Renaissance and the Reforma- tion were shaking the island kingdom. All classes of people were seized with a restlessness which foretold great achievement. JIariners and traders made voyages to newly discovered lauds and brought back wealth and tales of ■wonder. Elizabeth ' s attitude toward her people was one that fostered pros- perity at home. Life M-as marked by gi-eat activity : it was many-sided and dramatic ; the age was one of imagination and ' enthusiasm. Finally, there came poets and philosophers, men of rare genius, so richly endowed that they were able to respond to the spirit of their age and to reflect its temper and ideals in a permanent literature. The poetry of this period has represented nearly every type of humanity; it has given lasting utterance to nearly every thought and feeling that the human soul has ever known. But let us place by the side of the Elizabethan Age our own present age, and see how the two epochs compare. Is there not much more in our own civi- lization at which to marvel? We are not discovering new lands but we are making discoveries and inventions of a scientific nature that would startle the average Elizabethan were he to live today. We are not only voyaging across the seas, but we are actually fulfilling the prophecy of Tennyson where he speaks of " the nations airy navies grappling in the central blue. " By means of modern conveniences — telegraph and rapid modes of transit — wc have conquered distance, and have brought the nations of the world together into one great community. This has naturally brought about relations, political and connnereial, which continually present new problems. There is an inter- mingling and mixing of races and peoples which makes life exceedingly com- plex. Everywhere life seems to lie one panorama of shifting scenes and stirring ai-tion. Our I ' ntcd States has in a little over a century developed from a few col- onies to a great nation with a ])lace among the world powers. I ' nder iier dem- ocratic government she has given to iier citizens liberties and oiiiKH ' tnnities such as no people has ever enjoyed. Life lias never been richer, and fuller and freer than it is in our own country toda. -. The literature which would give expression, in any ade(|uate sense, to such a variety of rich human experinces nmst necessarily be a great one. It cannot be otherwise. We can see no reason why America should not produce more One Hundred T li i r t y - f o u r THE MAPLE LEAF than one great literary genius in this twentieth eentury to voice the thoughts and feelings of her people. Indeed, it is not impossible to find among American authors of recent years, and even of the present, men who have shown unusual talent along certain lines. As novelists, we have men like Howells, Churchill and Crawford; as poets men like Van Dyke, Riley, Frost, and iloody. It would be impossible to discuss all of these authors here, so I choose to discuss rather fully one of the poets in whom I have been especially interested. William Vaughn Moody was born at Spencer, Indiana in 1869, one of seven children of a steamboat captain. lie came of good i)arentage with a mingling of French, English and German blood in his veins. His home was of the humble sort, and Moody ' s early struggles were much like those of many anoth- er ambitious boy. His parents died before he was out of his teens and from that time Moody was thrown upon his own resources. He taught in a country school for awhile, then in the autumn of 1888 he went to Riverside Academy, New York. By teaching he was able to earn his tuition and thus he soon com- pleted the work required for graduation. In college, he made most of his ex- penses by tutoring. In 1893, he was graduated from Harvard, and a year later took his master ' s degree from the same institution. From 1895 to 1903, he served as instructor and assistant professor in English at the University of Chicago. Moody never liked Chicago and after he gave up his work at the University returned to New England where he spent most of the time until his death in October, 1910. As a child, ]Moody had the conviction that he must lie a poet. This idea as he became older, grew to be a passion, and he never lost sight of his purpose but was always, in whatever engaged, looking forward to and striving toward this ideal. To the life plan which he had mapped out, he frecjuently applied the pronoun ' " It. " His happiness depended upon whether or not he would be able to attain ' ' It " . He knew that more than scraps of time are required to become a great poet and he longed for the day when he might lay aside other tasks and be at leisure for the writing of poetry. Though a concientious teach- er, the work was a burden to him. A few lines taken from a letter written to one of his friends illustrates his attitude: " April is only forty-eight lec- tures, forty committee meetings and several thousands themes away. " From the success of a prose drama and the publishing of a history of English litera- ture, he received a considerable sum and no tempting offer could ' persuade him to hold his position at the University- of (hirago any longer. We are indebted for much of our information regarding the life of iMoody to his most intimate friend. Professor John Manly of Chicago. He says of IMoo- dy ' s character: " In word or act, he did not belie the poet. He was not anemic, but had a strong healthy body. He was a great conversationalist and could treat all sorts of subjects intelligently. " The poet always engaged ' nnich in outdoor sports — swimming, cycling, golf, tennis, walking and mountain climb- ing. He believed the development of the physical body to be just as essential as the development of any other faculty. Physical vigor he regarded indis- O n e Hundred T h i r t y - f i v e THE MAPLE LEAF pensable to health of miiikI and cliarauter. lie felt that the perfection of life lies in the realization of all one ' s power as a resnlt of tlie full development and harmonyi of eveiy phase of one ' s beintr. Moody ' s early poetry, like that of most young poets, was imitative and ex- perimental. His models were Shakespeare, Milton, Keats. Browning, Rossetti, Morris and Whitman. Much of his earl,y work never appeared in print or was published only in the Harvard Monthly. Some of his poems were bookish, on subjects suggested by his reading and often somewhat removed from life. Among tlie i)oet ' s maturer productions tlu-re are many poems liased on current incidents and personal experience. " Good Friday Night " was sug- gested by an Faster procession witnessed at Sorrento, in April ISItT. " Road Hynui for the Start " was suggested by a bicycle trip of the same ear. " A Grey Day " and " Gloucester ilooj-s " have their setting in a Ma.ssachusetts fishing district. " Ode in Time of Hesitation " and " On a Soldier Fallen in the Philippines " are two patriotic jioems very much wiu ' tli while. In gen- eral, Moody ' s subjects are love, i)atriotism, the character of woman, human suffering, God and the soul. They are the common themes of poetry treated in a manner peculiarly the poet ' s own. ] Ioody did not hesitate to attempt big things. As his masterpiece he plan- ned a trilogj ' to consist of three dramatic poems. Payne, a modern critic, says of this undertaking: " The stupendous task which Moody here set himself is the highest which poetry has ever attempted. It is the task of Aeschylus and Dante and Milton, the task of Goethe in his " Faust " and of Shelley in his " Prometheus Unbound. " It is Milton ' s attempt to justify the ways of God to man, coupled with the attempt of the later poets to justify the ways of man to God. " Two of the numbers of the trilogy were written liut the third was left unfinished on account of the author ' s early death. Of the two ])oems publislied, " Tlie Fircbringer. " though second in time of composition, is i)laced first in the trilogy. It deals with the Prometheus myth made famous in English jtoetry through the work of Shelley and .Mrs. Prown- ing. Prometheus is the legendary bringer of tire to mankind. When Zeus, the Creator of men sees tlu I ' ace tiourishing he jealously wishes to destroy his crea- tion. Prcniii ' tlicus (Iocs all in his power to jirevent this. In the absence of Zeus, he storms Olympus and steals a few live coals from the altar of the gods. These he is about to carry away in a vase when a thunderlinlt strikes the vase and spills its contents. Encouraged by Pandnra. Iiis wile. Pi ' ometheus continues his efforts until lie finally sm-ceeds in carrying away the covi ' ted fire in a feiuicl stalk. .M ly describes the |nniisliment nf Pi-ometheus as fol loM s : " A thousand aeons nailed in pain On tile blown World ' s plunging ]u-ow.

There are several beautiful lyrics in this numlier wliicli nicely illusti ' atc the One H u n d r e (3 T h i i t . - s i x THK MAri.E LEAP author ' s power of diction ami of imisiccil sujr fstion. " The Masque of Judgment, " first in time of composition, is second in the trilogy. In dramatic time it covers a period beginning just before the incar- nation of Christ and extending to the evening of the judgment day. The sub- ject matter here is Hebraic instead of Greek. Most of the characters are heavenly beings, chief among whom is Raphael, the archangel. The story pic- tures God taking upon himself the human form and suffering death in order to save men. At the judgment the good are preserved while the evil are crushed. Affci ' flic dcsti-ncfion of the evil, howe er. there still remains to vie with the angels the wdrni ereated vh( n man was ereatd. The worm seems to syndjolize death and can be overcome only by strife. The idea hei ' e, as in " The Firebringer, ■■ is that life is retained only through contlict. The beauty of the verse in " The Masque of Judgment " is remarkabb ' . There is a wealth of diction, varied imagery and rich music. It is really difficult to tell jnst what would have been the character of the third number and just how much it would have added to our a]ipreciati ni of the other members of the trilogy. Hut if we may accept the judgment of crit- ics, " The Death of Eve " gave iirimiise of greater things than the poet accom- plished in any of his other work. We can not justly interpret the other two poems without this one, because the author intended that the thi-ee together should form an organic whole. Moody ' s technique is especially interesting. Ilis imagery is wonderful for its intense sensory appeal. He speaks of the scarlet tanager as " yonder flame. " of the movement of the earth as " the velvet plunge and the soft upreel. " of " the wild laugh of naked nature, " of " the striken sea groNcled with feai-. " of " the opal heart, " of a snnnner afternoon, of " the ashen lips " of a western storm. Scarcely can one read a jiage of his poetry M ' ithout finding nuuierous expressions of this sort. The poet ' s diction like his imagery is rich and varied. He seems to have had a particular fondness for beautiful words. A word was to him a jewel reflect- ing many hues. He was very keen to appreciate their nu lody and suggestive power. His language though simple is ])aekeil with uu ' aniug. We think of Poe and Lanier as our American meterists but it is |)rol)ably an understatement to say that Moody is their peer. He seems to phrase his idea and the movement takes cares of itself. Listen to the strong sweep of the rhythm in. the lines, " [ am the woman, ark of the law and its breaker. Who chastened her step and taught her knees to he uieek, " There are a few adverse criticisms of jMoody ' s poeti-y which we must notiee briefly. However kiiul we might be in passing o ' er these, if the ci ' itieisms are just time will reveal the defeets. Perhaps the most frequent eritieisiii otfered is that of vagueness. It is true iloody ' s poeuis do not alv.ays reveal their ineaning to the casual reader. They iiuist often be studied to be uuderst:iod. This is due to several causes. Most of his poetry is di ' auuitic rather than nar- rative, and therefore makes greater demands upon the reader- " s iiiiagiuatiou. THE MAPLE LEAF The quality of the autlior ' s imagination makes tlie interpretation still more difficult. But granting that Moody ' s poetry does not read like the most simple narrative, is this neeessarilj- a defect? Is the reading of poetry to be indulged in only as a mere pastime The things which usually do us the most good can not be gotten without eft ' ort. Another objection sometimes urged is that the author in his choice of class- ical themes does not come into close contact with life. This charge is un.iust. Though he makes a large use of the myth, he uses it only as a framework, or basis, for his message. It is only a means to an end and not the end in itself. Moody has made the material so much his own that he has been able to vitalize it with new thought and emotion, hence instead of directing our attention to the past it gives new visions of the future. We shall not discuss Moody ' s i)hilosoph3-. or ideas, in detail. He believed in the reality and nearness of God. God is one with whom we can enter into communion; in fact, we cannot get along without him. He characterizes wo- man not as a fieshless angel but as a real human lieing with faults and graces. He had faith in our democracy and believed in its ideals ; he was intensely patriotic. The reasons which seem to suggest that Moody ' s name will in the future appear among those of our great jioets may be briefly summarized: 1st. He deals with the supreme issues of life and thought, with the destiny of man and his attempts to solve the mystery of the universe; 2nd, He has a vastness of conception, a breadth of vision rare even in great poetry; . ' Jrd, His emotions are strong and deep ; -tth, He has a rich imagination which seems inexhaustible in its command of metaphor; 5th, He has the knowledge of technitiue and the cultural equipment needed for his work. That a man so talented and so well equipped for a great life work should have been taken away in his most promising years is a decided loss to the world. We can only regret the fact and wonder wliat might have been the re- sult had he been privileged tn live longer. — Marv Hooley.

And you look exactly like your father ditl twenty-five years ago when he first canic home from college. " Teacher — Deception is a very had thing. 1 will illusti-ate.

Freddie — That is what il other says, hut father says no one will notice it. " What did ,vou think of my graduation essay? " inquired a young girl.

Elcy ' s strong determination will make her a leader in rural districts. Louie ' s heart is not here as he rushes to and fro. No wonder he begins his discourse with ■ " Sayde " you know.

Albert ' s slogan is " Back to the Farm, " There I ' ll hustle with a Rustle, And toil with my strong arm. Oh, do you not see the afflicted and sick?

They treat their customers just as they would have their customers treat them. In their SAVINGS DEPARTMENT the interest is added each six months to the principal and thus deposit- ors get Compound Interest. $1.00 will start a Sa ings Account. " A little often fills the purse. " That is why 1 patronize their Bank. I advise you, students to deposit your money there. It is the safest place to keep it. You will receive only fair and courteous treatment.

The HcM ildtM-ecl Uotanists In IJosgy Border One May Day tiiie, I ' ve heard it said, The Botany Class to Leesbiirg sped, To gatlier rioral specimens I ' Hre AVhii ' h were said to be growinji there. Now neHr Leesburg is tlie nld Tippeeanoe. To gather the flowers th;it near it grew Some traveled by auto and some in the ear And two on a motorcycle journeyed so far. Arrived in the cit.y the soon passed througli Hoping to find where the flowers grew. Theiy followed then their Professoi down The stony roads beyond the town. They followed him on. the unknown road And there saw many an ancient abode. They walked quite fast and then walked slower Prophecying an approaching shower. When suddenly the clouds grew thicker. The good Professor led them ((uicker, Hoping to reach the swamp lands yet Before the swamp lands did get wet. These swamps were not called swamjjs in vain. They were nice and swampy from the recent rain. Along the edge there was ver ' good Avalking, But farther in — it was really shocking How boggy and nuickj ' and sloppy and wet That Tippecanoe marshland had managed to get. I know you ' ll hardly believe what 1 say When I tell you it was .ju.st so mucky all way That Oswald who started with borrowe d white shoes. Got them filled and covered with black slimy ooze. Miss Weaver who always has lived on a farm Jumped a barbed wire fence (she received no harm) To escape a mud puddle that stood in the way But she after all got her shoes covered with clay. Showalter made his feet very light And. touching each grass blade in a way that was right. He sped over swamp and watery quagmire With a speed that rivaled the Century Flyer. The good Payson ] Iiller got cold clear through From the top of his eaj) to the sole of his shoe. He suddenly got a ]ieeidiai ' hunch That it was his duty to carry tlu ' linicli. So off he started in a manner (|uite dapper One Hundred S e v e n t y - s i x THE MAl ' I.K LKAF Trying to eat a sweet stolen apple. This however he was not able to do Because some water met witli his shoe. Little Miss Lantz with her dainty -white hat And wet muddy shoes on a livusli heap sat Lamenting because the Keniois were slow Too tired, too timid any tartlier to go. But whether slow or tin. id or tired Thay greatly objected to thus being mired So Louis Miller itli rare did explore The nearby svvam[i and lound tiowers galore. Jliss Treuschel quite calmly sat on a rail While the others entered a new marshy vale. At last the tAVO Seniors to town did retire By way of a road that was ery iiiucli nigiier Than the one on which tlicy had traNclcd out To where the old marsh land lay all about. The others all followed the Professor through The marsh lands, and o er the old Tippecanoe. On its wonderful Imnks they stood one full minute Trying to see everything that Avas in it. They finally concluded tliat its waters at last Would reach the deep ocean when many days had passed. So they recrossed the s-wamii on a bridge that was old ' And re-entered the swamp in a spirit quite bold. But all till ' flowers the. managed to liiid AVere just exactly the very same kind That grow in the woods near Goshen College. Now pray, tell me, did they increase their knowdedge? It is said that because nothing else they could find They, on borrowed apples and skunk cabbage, dined. They finally decided to Leesbnrg to go. A journey which really proved to be slow. Miss Lantz and Miss Weaver would indeed have lieen weary If the good patient Campbell had not been so cheery. He placing them (piickly upon his steel steed Took them safely to town with all possible speed. The Seniors who had beeji waylaid by a train Soon met these young ladies at the station again. Good Brother Weaver put his car into motion And took the three ladies and Miller to Goshen. Arriving there just at the opportune time To see the big ball team get into line. Exactly what happened to the rest of the crowd No one has yet dared to tell it aloud. They say that Oswald was afraid to come home. One Hundred S e v e n t y - s e v e n THE MAPLE LEA.P . I wonder, did they leave him out yonder to roam? Here ' s hoping that Campbell came to his rescue And brought him to Goshen in spite of his wet shoe. And here ' s hoping that all came back in good spirits Which each who has done his own duty merits. " Ve all know the Professor filled his green can And came back a well contented young man. 80 why should anyone worry ov run AVhen each one had had so verv much fun? —A. G. T.
