Text from Pages 1 - 320 of the 1910 volume:

W: stm ¥ % JI8 v- Sli This Volume of ROYAL PURPLE is respectfully dedicated to our honored president, HENRY JACKSON WATERS by the Class of 1910 (5v4t m sm 1 1 - ( m m m :VDLUME; ' : ' ■a? .V: • M i% m U%. ■y 8S P " HENm Jackson Waters President ROYAL PURPLE igio President Waters IXCE Royal Purple made his bow last year the honorable burden of shaping the destiny of the College has been placed upon a new president. After a search of over a year by two Boards of Regents, the unanimous choice fell upon Henry Jackson AA aters, then dean of the College of Agriculture in the University of Missouri. That this choice would prove a wise one was indicated by the uniformity of the commendation accorded Dean AYaters by those familiar with his work. He had found, in 1897, the College of Agri- culture weak, the victim of strife and an object almost of contempt. He made it respected all over the world. He found it without ade- quate funds, he left it strengthened and built up by legislative favor bestowed upon no other college of the University. From 1890 to 1895 he had been Professor of Agriculture in the Pennsylvania State College and Agriculturist to the Experiment Station, being the first Western man in agriculture to be called to an Eastern institution. At the University of Missouri he had devised and was conducting an extensive series of investigat : ons in animal nutrition that had at- tracted world-wide interest because of their scientific merit as well as their practical application. His publications had reached some sixty titles, aggregating nearly 1,200 pages. PTe had the confidence of the farmers and the public generally in Missouri and the esteem, even the affection, of his associates in the University. That the choice of Dean Waters was a wise one has been shown by his Kansas work thus far. He has been an extremely busy man. Not only has the College organization and personnel required and received much careful attention, but outside organizations have sought him for addresses. The courses of study have undergone a thorough reconsideration and careful revision in which the hand of the president has been that of the master. He has shown the attri- butes of greatness in that he seeks not to deprecate the work of others, but only to build upon the existing foundation a stronger and a fairer ROYAL PURPLE ioio structure. Forgetting those things which are behind, he presses for- ward toward the mark of a high calling. President Waters is approachable, sympathetic and sincere; generous in approval and appreciative; frank and outspoken when differing in opinion ; courteous and considerate. He is steadily bind- ing his Faculty to himself and uniting them in giving their best service to the Institution dear to us all. He has pronounced con- victions and defi nite aims in education, but is always ready to weigh attentively the views of others. He has largeness of outlook and while he is in command its best friends may rest assured that the College ship will " Sail on. Sail on, and on! " The ancestors of President Waters came from Middleham, Yorkshire, England, settling in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1608. Their descendants are prominent in Virginia, Maryland, the Caroknas, Ten- nessee and Kentucky. His grandfather fought in Jackson ' s brigade at the battle of New Orleans and later established a home on a farm in Ralls county, Northeastern Missouri. Though a slave-holder he was a staunch Unionist and voluntarily freed his slaves before the emancipation proclamation. The father of the subject of this sketch was educated as a civil engineer and was engaged in the survey of Texas at the outbreak of the Civil War. This event terminated this work and he engaged in farming and stock-raising. He was well-known as an extensive writer and prominent lecturer on agricultural topics. For some years he edited the Journal of Agriculture. H. J. Waters was born November 23, 1865, in Ralls county, Mo. He received his primary education in the public schools and was prepared for college by his father. He was graduated from the College of Agriculture, University of Missouri, in 1886, but re- mained there as a graduate student for two years longer. He then served the institution for two years as Assistant in Agriculture, and was then elected to the Pennsylvania professorship from which Mis- souri recalled him in 1895 to become Dean of the College of Agri- culture and Director of the Experiment Station. After several years of pronounced success in this work he was granted a leave of ab- ROYAL PURPLE igio sence for a year and a half, which he spent in the study of animal nutrition in the universities of Leipsic and Zurich, returning in 1905. Shortly after his return he was elected Dean of the College of Agri- culture and Director of the Experiment Station in the University of California at a very attractive salary, but a contract, from which the regents of the Missouri institution would not release him, pre- vented its acceptance. He was recently elected to the presidency of the Colorado Agricultural College, but declined. In addition to his work in the institutions with which he was formally connected, the capacity and trarning of Professor Waters have been claimed for much outside effort. He prepared the splen- did exhibit in agriculture which Missouri made at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. He gave instruction in Animal Nutrition in the Graduate School of Agriculture in 1903 and 1906 and has been asked to give a course of lectures at the session to be held this year. President Waters is a member of the honorary societies of the Sigma Xi. Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Zeta. In June, 1897, he was married to Miss Margaret Ward Watson, of Columbia. Missouri, whose accomplishments, social charm and loyalty have since been a constant inspiration and source of strength. Their only child, Henrv Jackson Waters, Jr.. was born June 3, 1900. " Profs. " Between Arts ROYAL PURPLE igio Faculty and Assistant Professors DEAN WEBSTER, B.S.Agr., M.S. Dean of Agriculture, Director of Experiment Station Ed Webster is a native of the Sunflower State. He is one of the few Kansans who have won national distinction. After being- granted an M.S. at K. S. A. C. Mr. Webster added B. A. to his name at the Iowa State College. Mr. Webster has made rapid advancement, beginning as As- sistant in Dairying at this institution in 1901, he was soon promoted to Professor of the Department. From this position in 1903 he was called to Washington, D. C, to act as Expert in Dairying. This position he held until 1905, when he was chosen to fill an opening in a large field, as Clr ' ef of the Dairy Division. When the chair of Director of the Experiment Station was vacated several likely candi- dates were considered for the position. Mr. W ' ebster was chosen as the one best fitted to bring the work of the Department into harmony with the students and the Agricultural interests of the state. With this in view, Dean Webster has reorganized, added to, and improved the work of the station. This " big man " with his pleasant demeanor has won the confidence of the student body. JOHN D. WALTERS, M.Sc, D.A. Professor of Architecture and Drawing Professor Walters has the distinction of being the senior of the professors on the hill, both in age and in years of service. He was born in Unterramsem, Switzerland, and received his early educa- tion in that country, graduated from the High School of Buchegg- berg in 1863 at the head of his class. He then entered Canton College, but on account of finances was compelled to drop out and teach for a couple of years. During the time, however, he made up a year or two of his college work by private study and in 1866 10 ROYAL PURPLE ioio passed the examination for a life diploma as a Swiss teacher. He then returned to Canton College and finished the five-year technical course. He then took a course in Civil Engineering in the Uni- versity of Berns, after which he worked for a time as a geodetic surveyor. In 18 ' 68 he landed in New York without resources other than perseverance and willingness to work. How well he succeeded may he judged from the fact that nine years after landing in Xew York he had become the head of the Department of Industrial Drawing at K. S. A. C. During lv ' s long period of service here, his ability as an instructor and as an advisor in building matters has moved him stead : lv upwards. At the time of the organization of the four- year course in Architecture, in 1904, he was made head of that De- partment, which position he now holds. JULIUS TERRASS WILLARD, D.Sc. Dean of Science, Professor of Chemistry Professor Willard is a native of Kansas of whom the state should be proud. His work in the College ranges from student to Dean, the intermediate portions always indicating a steady climb toward the top. Dean Willard received Irs B. S. degree at K. S. A. C. in 1883; was Assistant in Chemistry, 1883-87; student : ' n Johns Hopkins University, 1887-88; received his M. S. at K. S. A. C. in 1888; he was Assistant Chemist of the Agricultural Experimental Station, 1888 to 1897; Chemist Experiment Station, 1897 to ; Professor of Applied Chemistry, 1897 to 1 ( »01 ; Director of the Ex- periment Station, 1900 to 1908; Professor of Chemistry, 1901 to ; received D. Sc. from K. S. A. C, 1908. He is a member of a dozen or more of the leading National Scientific Societ: ' es and his work has earned for him a prominent place in " Who ' s Who in America. " At the time that he became head of the Chemistry Department, in 1901, the total number enrolled in all the Chemistry classes for the year was 031 ; in 1909 and 1910 the number was 2,417. Since 1901 Lhe Experiment Station work has greatly increased, and several lines of State work have been assigned to the Chemistry Department. The ROYAL PURPLE igio 11 Professor of Chemistry is now an advisory member of the State Board of Health and one of the food analysts for the Board. The Chemist of the Experiment Station is in charge of the analysis and inspection of fertilizers under the State laws relating to those articles. He is also authorized to make analyses for the State Dairy Commis- sioner. The great increase in the number of students and hence in the number coming to the Chemistry Department, together with the great enlargement of the Experiment Station and official Chemistry work has more than filled the capacity of the Chemistry and Physical Science Hall. At present there is probably no department so badly crowded for space as this. Among the more important lines of work undertaken in the de- partment during the last nine years have been digestion and nutrition experiments with prairie hay and alfalfa, milling and baking tests of wheat and flour, comparison of the digestibility of bleached and unbleached flour, investigations concerning the percentage of water and the occurrence of copper in oysters, and a beginning has been made in a chemical investigaton of Kansas soils. BENJAMIN L. REMICK, Ph-.M. Professor of Mathematics Along about the time of Cleveland ' s administration, when things were rather dull, the professors about Cornell College amused them- selves by watching a young magician pick all sorts of mathematical paraphernalia right out of the air. Eater they employed him as In- structor of Mathematics. Thus began the career of Professor Remick as a teacher. After resigning his position at his alma mater, he held positions of interesting importance with several of the large Western Universities and Colleges, eventually landing at K. S. A. C. as Pro fessor of Mathematics. When he assumed his present position, three teachers were able to take care of the work. At present twelve teachers, with a number of student assistants, are working over time in order to start the embryo mathematicians onward to fame. 12 ROYAL PURPLE ion BENJAMIN F. EVER, E.E. Professor of Electrical Engineering Prof. Ever, the man at the head of the Electrical Engineering Department at K. S. A. C, has a reputation among the scientific men of his profession as being one of the foremost men in the country when it comes to training young men for electrical engineer- ing. Men whom he will recommend are in continual demand throughout this section of the country, one of the largest electric man- ufacturers : ' n the East employing technical graduates from only three Western schools, K. S. A. C. being one of the three. Prof. Eyer ' s early hi story as a teacher was in connection with the Physics department in the Topeka High School. He is a gradu- ate of Armour ' s Institute of Technology and later took a course in Experimental Engineering with the General Electric Company at Schenectady, New York. He is a full member of the American In- stitute of Electrical Engineers and takes an active part in their an- nual conventions, thus keeping abreast of the newest ideas along electrical lines. HERBERT F. ROBERTS, M.S., LL.B. Professor of Botany This serious-looking gentleman is the builder of the Botany Course at K. S. A. C. as it stands today. Five years ago two men had charge of the Botany work and but one course of advanced work was required. Today six men are on the staff and four ad- vanced courses are requ ' red. The course is the best in the West and is one of the best in the country. The breeding work in wheat and alfalfa is the most extensive of any in the United States. K. S. A. C. has reason to boast of this department, for this is the only Agricultural College in which Plant Physiology, Plant Pathology and Plant Breeding are required courses and are taught by spe- cialists. Although of Botany, by Botany and for Botany all the time, Professor Roberts is a very broad man. He graduated from the University of Kansas, A. B., ' 91 ; Northwestern University, EL. B., ' 93; K. S. A. C, M. S., ' 97, and was a graduate student of the Uni- h ' OV.lL I ' CRJ ' Lli Kj in 13 versity of Chicago in ' 98 and ' ' [ . From ' 99 to ' 01 he was in- structor at Washington University (St. Louis), leaving that posi- tion to become Professor of Botany at K. S. A. C. He has published several bulletins on Adulterations and Impuri- ties in Seeds, Wheat and Alfalfa Breeding, etc., and has several now on the press. He also has the MSS. of a text on plant breeding in the hands of the publishers. He made the first investigation on the prevention of smut in kafhr corn by the use of formaldehvde, this investigation alone having saved thousands of dollars to the fanners of the state. In 1908 he was sent as a commissioner to investigate the wheat conditions in Southeastern F.urope and com- piled some very valuable data. WM. A. McKEEVER, Ph.M. Professor of Philosophy William A. McKeever was born in a one-room log cabin in Jackson County. Kansas. He was reared on a farm and followed the occupat : on of farming until after twenty-one years of age. Later he taught in the countrv schools, as principal of graded schools and as superintendent of city schools. He is head of the department of Philosophy and has been in the K. S. A. C. Faculty ten years. Professor McKeever ' s method of work is such as to stimulate thought and action in others. Flis optimism has won for him the popular nickname, " Sunshine " and " Sunny Jim. " But it is not alone in the class room that his influence is felt. His book, " Psychologic [Method in Teaching, " was a part of the Kansas Teachers " Reading Circle Course the past year and had a sale of more than 10.000 copies during that time. He is best known throughout the country as the author of " The Home Train- ing Series, " a set of four pamphlets which are sent out free to parents all over the country. " The Cigarette Smoking Boy " is the best known of the series and has been translated into a dozen dif- ferent languages. He also writes for the current magazines and frequently addresses teachers ' associations and meetings. Professor McKeever holds the degree of A. M. from Kansas Lniversitv and that of Ph. M. from the University of Chicago. Familiar Far, ROYAL PURPLE wio 15 He has also taken advanced work in Philosophy under John Dewey, of Columbia; J. Mark Baldwin, of Johns Hopkins, and Josiah Royce, of Harvard. edmund b. Mccormick, s.b. Dean of Mechanical Arts Dean McCormick is a product of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The major portion of his work at K. S. A. C. has been spent in building up the present Mechanical Engineering course, being Professor of that department up to September, 1909, at which time he was made Dean of Mechanical Arts. His success in his work here is due to the fact that he is a practical man. He is shrewd in business proport ' ons and applies his principles in conducting the affairs of his department. Owing to his ability along this line and also on account of h : s natural born interest in athletics, he was the unanimous choice of the Athletic Association for General Manager of Athletics at their Fall election, ' 09. Much is due Mr. McCorm ' ck in connection with the recent appropriations of the State Legislature for the new engineering building and equipment. Also in connection with the new athletic field he has taken a strong lead and if EC. S. A. C. is ever to have adecmate appropriation for athletics he will he the man to get it. ALBERT DICKEXS, M.Sc. Professor of Horticulture Albert Dickens was horn :n Minnesota, but early in his life came to Kansas and grew up on a Rice County farm. Here he received his common school education and later worked on a stock farm. He entered K. S. A. C. in 1890 and received a degree of B. S. in 1893. He worked in the Horticultural Department of the Experiment Station during the summer of 1895 and 1896. In 1899 he became an assistant in the Department of Horticulture and Entomology ami held that pos ' tion until 1901, when the department was divided and Mr. Dickens was made the head of the new department of Horticul- 16 ROYAL PURPLE igm ture, with one assistant. He received his degree of M. S. the same year. Since then the department has steadily grown until at the present there are one assistant professor, one instructor, two assistants and more needed. Forestry work was begun in 1899 and ten years later the State Forestry work was added to the department. Mr. Dickens is the author of four bulletins and parts of two others as well as pamphlets for the Extension Department and re- ports on Forestry. He is a life member of the Kansas Horticultural Society and also a member of the American Pomological Society and of the American Forestry Association. Professor Dickens has visited ever)- county in the state, either on Institute or Forestry work and has so endeared himself to the farmers that they are always glad to go to him for advice. He is also a favorite with his students and is a capable, interesting in- structor and friend. CLARK M. BRINK, Pri.D. Professor of English. Assistant to the President This is the eighth vear that the English Department has been in charge of Dr. Brink. In that time the teaching force of that department has grown from three instructors to eight, the number of students enrolled in English from a scant hundred to a thousand. Professor Brink is a New Yorker by birth and education. His preparation for college was secured in the public and academic schools of the Empire State. Entering the University of Rochester, he graduated from that institution, after four years, with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, taking the highest honors in Latin, Declama- tion and Oratory. He then spent three years at the Rochester Theological Seminary, graduating with a rank that entitled him to the degree of B. D. He then entered the ministry, remaining for five years at Des Moines, in the meantime completing " the work in absentia for the Master ' s degree at his alma mater. He then became the pastor of a church at Newark, N. J., taking up at the same time a course of graduate study in the English Language and Literature at New York Universitv, graduating at the end of four vears with ROY. II. PURPLE loio 17 the degree Ph. 1). He resigned his pastorate at Newark to accept the position of Instructor in Rhetoric and Oratory at Brown Uni- versity, which position he held for three years. Dr. Brink then be- came Professor of English and History at Kalamazoo College. Remaining six years at Kalamazoo, he then resigned his pro- fessorship to take a year of advanced graduate study at Harvard. At the close of that Sabbatic year, in the summer of 1902, Dr. Brink was elected to his present position, as the successor of Rev. Frank C. Lockwood, now Professor of English in Allegheny Collesre. ALBERT MOORE TEX EYCK, M.S. Professor of Agronomy Professor Ten Eyck began his work in this state, December 1, 1902, as Professor of Agronomy. He was previously connected with the North Dakota Agricultural College for five years as Assistant Professor of Agriculture. Professor Ten Eyck is a native of Wis- consin, a farmer by birth and raising. He is a graduate of the Wis- consin State University with a degree of B.S.Agr., and has an M.S. degree from the Colorado Agricultural College. The Agronomv Department as it stands today is what he has made it. Beginning with one assistant on one-half time and with only one class room available, he has built up a course which requires a whole building for its accommodation and requires in addition to the head, an Assistant Professor, five assistants, and a larg ' e force of office clerks, stenographers, foremen, etc. Mr. Ten Eyck has written a large number of bulletins both here and at the North Dakota sta- tion. He is quoted largelv in the newspapers throughout the United States and is quoted as authoritv on agricultural subjects. RALPH R. PRICE, M.A. Professor of History and Civics Professor Price has proven to class after class that he is a " shark " at his game and his usual winning - cards are Kings and Queens. History has no record of a student who succeeded in run- 18 ROYAL PURPLE igio ning- a bluff on him, indeed it is doubtful if it could be done, so well does he seem to have in mind the happenings of the past. The course in History at K. S. A. C. is especially strong, special emphasis being placed on the reason of history rather than on the memorizing of a volume of dates. With the rapid growth of the College the last few years this department kept pace, inaugur- ating several new subjects and strengthening the course in general. In connection with his work here, Prof. Price has written an out- line of study for both History and Civics for use in his classes and by means of which he has made his courses very comprehensive. J. E. KAMMEYER, A.M. Professor of Economics Professor Kammeyer ' s work with the College began in 1903 as Professor of Oratory. The following year he was made the Professor of Economics, which position he now holds, at the same time retaining charge of the Public Speaking work. Under his direction these subjects have developed so substantially that they are now required in all the courses offered. The work is taught so as to correlate with the technical courses rather than a separate art of making orators and politicians, although some bright stars oc- casionally develop. None of these, however, have learned definitelv Professor Kammeyer ' s political affiliations. If early environment played any part he should be a fighting Democrat, for he was born in Missouri in the border ruffian days. We have in him a living example of one of the boys who " worked their way " through college. After graduation he took up teaching as a profession, working from the graded, through High School to his present position. He has also had considerable experi- ence on the platform as a lecturer and has a natural ability to pre- side at Oratorical Contests. JOHN VAN ZANDT CORTELYOU, Ph.D. Professor of German Although Professor Cortelyou is best known among the students from his work as General Manager of Athletics, he is equally as popu- ROYAL PURPLE 1910 19 lar with those who have taken work under him. He is a native of New Jersey, but made his first inroads on higher education at the Nebraska State University, graduating with the degree of B. A. in ' 97, followed by the degree of Ah A. in " 01. In 1904 he re- ceived a degree of Ph. D. from Heidelberg Lniversity, Germany. While at that institution he worked considerahle along literary lines, dealing chiefly with Philology, his chief work heing " Die angel sachsischen Namen der Insekten Spinnen und Krustentiere. " Prof. Cortelvou ' s work as a teacher before coming to K. S. A. C. was in the Humboldt, Nebraska, High School, he having resigned a principalship at that school to take higher work at the State Uni- versity. He was elected to his present position in 1904. His interest in athletics has taken substantial form in his work as General Manager and to him more than to any one man be- longs the credit for putting - athletics at K. S. A. C. on a sound finan- cial basis. OLOF VALLEY. B.M. Professor of Music Mr. Valley, the head of the Department of Music at K. S. A. C, is a native of Sweden. He is a graduate of the Chicago Conserva- tory of Music and has studied under such masters as Signor Carpi, Albert B. Ruff, Wm. N. Burritt and Max Heinrich. After his graduation from the Chicago Conservatorv. Prof. Valley was for a time a member of the Faculty of his Alma Mater, and in connection with this position he was engaged as a Concert, Oratorio and Operatic Singer. He later toured America with his Concert Company, and in 1897 went on an European tour. He has a national reputation as a bass singer and has been heard in many of the larger cities, Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, etc. Professor Valley and his able assistants are striving to give their pupils the best classical music, and to create a desire among the students at large for the better things in music. Instead of re- quiring an additional tuition fee as do the music departments of other colleges and universities, the instruction here is free and the students are encouraged to enroll. An orchestra, band, chapel chorus " O, wad sonic power the giftie gie us To see oursels as ithers see us. " ROYAL PURPLE torn 21 and glee club are maintained throughout the year and during the Spring term recitals are given by the more advanced students. For the past five years a concert has been rendered each Spring by a chorus of one hundred voices, assisted by the orchestra and imported soloists. DR. F. S. SCHOENLEBER, M.S.A., D.V.M., M.D. Professor of Veterinary Science. State Veterinarian Dr. Schoenleber is originally a native of the State of Illinois, but received his first college training at the Iowa State College. From there he next enrolled in the National Medical University of Chicago, where he received the degree of M. D. After practicing in this field of medicine for a time he decided that the future held greater things in store for the Vet. so we find him next receiving the honor of D. V. M. at the Chicago Veterinary School. From there he entered the field as a practitioner; to be later called to the McKillip School of Veterinary Medicine as Dean. The next rise in store for him was at K. S. A. C, where in 1905 he was appointed to the position as head of the new Department of Veterinarv Science, just then organized. In the following March he was given the position of State Veterinarian. Little need be said about his labor since coming to be with us, for in the four years course and the new building which has been erected and equipped at the cost of $70,000, we have a perpetual monu- ment as a reward for his unceasing toil and energy. He can be described by one of his own favorite expressions that " We ' ll make something doing. " R. J. KINZKR, B.S.Agr. Professor of Animal Husbandry Roland J. Kinzer is a product of the Buckeye State. He was graduated at the Iowa State College, after which he was employed as Superintendent of the State Farm at Ames, Iowa. Since coming to K. S. A. C. he has organized and built up the Animal Husbandrv Department until it ranks as one of the best in the country. 22 ROYAL PURPLE igio Professor Kinzer is ranked as one of the foremost and keenest judges of live stock in America. During the last year he was called to act as judge at the Fancy Stock Show at Seattle and at Brandon, Canada. Such an honor may well he considered as a recognition of rare and superior ability. Professor Kinzer is very modest and retiring, hence little is known previous to his advent at K. S. A. C, but it is rumored that while confined within the limits of dormitory life at college, he was responsible for a bunch of Tamworth Hogs going up the fire escape of the girls ' dormitory into the hallway. WALTER E. KING, A.B., A.M. Professor of Bacteriology The head of the Department of Bacteriology is one of the three " Kings, " his official title reading like this: Walter E. King, A.B. Wabash, ' 00; A.M. Cornell, ' 05; A.M. (honorary), Wabash, ' 08. Previous to coming to K. S. A. C. Professor King was research Bacteriologist of the Parke, Davis Co., Detroit, Mich. He has held his present position as Professor of Bacteriology since the organiza- tion of the Department, when it was separated from the Veterinary Department in 1907. The department now occupies a set of well appointed laboratories and class rooms in the new Veterinary Build- ing. Extensive research in animal diseases, dairy and soil bac- teriology is carried on by Professor King and his assistants. Over 300 students are enrolled annually in these courses. Professor King has the distinction of being one of the four active members elected in 1910 to the Society of American Bacteriologists. He is at present contributing to a new text-book, " Agricultural Bacteriology, " of which Dr. Marshall, of Michigan, is editor. Professor King is one of the favorites of the student body. THOMAS J. HEADLEE, Ph.D. Professor of Entomology Dr. Headlee is a native of Indiana, and the major portion of his school days were spent in his home state; first graduating from ROYAL PURPLE wio 23 High School, then from the State Normal with the degree of A. B. and then from the Slate University with the degree of A. M. Later he graduated with the degree i Ph. D. from Cornell. Previons to coming to K. S. A. C. he was Associate Entomolo- gist of the New Hampshire Experiment Station. Since coming to K. S. A. C. he has completely reorganized the course in Entomology and perfected an extensive laboratory course which is given in con- junction with the theory. Aside from his regular work, Dr. Headlee has turned out an enormous amount of bulletin work. His work of this nature in- cludes treatises on the Prairie Ant, Insects Injurious to Alfalfa, Green Bug, Chinch Bug, Hessian Fly, Greater Wheat Straw Worm. Corn Ear Worm, etc. We find still further evidences of extensive research along entomological lines in the prominent Entomological Journals, Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, etc. At the pres- ent rate of accumulation we may expect a set of his complete works to comprise a number of volumes in the near future. LIEUT. CHAS. H. BOICE Professor of Military Tactics Attention ! Here is the man who in time of peace prepares for war. Lie is every inch a soldier, for his honors have all been won on the field. A native of Xew York, he entered the service as a pri- vate of Volunteers in the Spanish-American war and was promoted to First Lieutenant. He was mustered out at the end of the war and immediately re-entered the service as First Lieutenant of Vol- unteers and served in the Philippines two years. While here his conduct was such that he was made Brevet Captain, and then Brevet Major; the reason given in each case was ' ' For meritorious conduct in action. " At the end of the war he was honored with a First Lieu- tenancy in the regular army, being finally assigned to the Seventh Cavalry. He was detailed to the College November 14, 1907, and since then has done much to add to the efheiency of the Cadet Corps.

Boice to remain another year, and if he does so he will have served the maximum time which an army officer is allowed to remain at this post. JOHN C. KENDALL, B.S. Professor of Dairy Husbandry Professor Kendall is our dairymaid. His mother taught him the secrets of the trade when he was a bit of a bov in the old New Hampshire home among - the hills. Later the A. M. College of New Hampshire put on a few polishing touches and gave him a degree of B. S. He is well known throughout Kansas and is carrying on a cam- paign by means of bulletins and farmers ' institutes among the farm ers and dairymen of the state that is having a large effect on the quality of our dairy products. J. O. HAMILTON, B.S. Professor of Physics Professor Hamilton ' s work with the Physics Department began in 1901. The growth of the department under his supervision lias kept pace with the phenomenal development of the school. The work of the department is necessarily heavy, as from two to five terms of Physics are required in every course offered. The standing of the work is exceptionally high and is accepted in all the leading Univer- sities of the country. Previous to his advent here, Professor Hamilton was occupied as a teacher and later as a Mining Engineer. Llis early education was received at Monmouth College and at the University of Chicago. In addition to his regular work he has charge of the U. S. Weather Bureau Station located at the College. During his connection with the College he has developed an efficient method of treating sulphated storage cells, constructed an electrical schedule clock which controls the bells in all the buildings, has edited " Some Weather Studies " and a " Physics Lab. Manual. " At the present time he is investigating the nature of the light of the fire-flv. He is also a consistent athletic enthusiast, being at one time the Athletic Manager. ROYAL PURPLE ion MRS. M RV P. VAN ZILE. Dean of Women,, Professor of Domestic Science Mrs. Van Zile. the woman who is keeping up the reputation of K. S. A. C. for sending out the best housewives in the world, is a native of Kansas and a former student of the College. She is a graduate of the Iowa State College and following her graduation was employed as an Instructor of Domestic Science in that Institu- tion. Later she taught in the Chicago Public Schools, resigning her position to become Dean of Women here. One mvstery of her department which remains unsolved is how they expect to keep up the reputation of being good housewives. They all claim that they owe it to the world to become teachers and furthermore, Mrs. Van Zile forbids the boys to visit the girls at work ; says that thev must call at the office and see her first. Verily, it is " Ad Astra Per Aspera. " T. D. RICK.MAX Superintendent of Prixtixg Like many other heads of departments. Mr. Rickman has wit- nessed the entire evolution of his department. He is a native of Iowa, but previous to coming to K. S. A. C. was employed for eight years in the state printing office at Topeka. He began his work here as foreman of the printing office in 1898, and the following year was made Superintendent of Printing. S nee then he has witnessed the growth of the printing department from a junk heap to a splendidlv equipped printing office, systematically built, with modern machinery. The course offered by this department is the onlv four-year course in printing offered by any college or university in the United States. The graduates have a good knowledge of practical journal- ism as well as actual shop practice, the aim of the department being to turn out country newspaper men rather than city reporters. Iii and Around the Campus ROYAL PURPLE iqio MISS ANTONETTA BECKER Professor of Domestic Art Miss Becker has been at the head of the Domestic Art De- partment since January. 1906. Owing to the popularity of the course throughout the state, the work of the department has grown to such an extent that the entire second floor of the Do- mestic Science and Art Hall is required for the accommodation of the students taking the course. Miss Becker had the first experience as a teacher while yet a student at Drexel. assisting in the evening classes of that institu- tion for two years. During her work here, the Domestic Art course has been greatly strengthened and is now the best west of the Alleghenies. The new course adopted by the Board of Regents broadens the scope of the work still more so that we may safely prophesy great things for the future. MISS GERTRUDE BARXES Librarian Tap ! Tap ! Tap ! " Won ' t you please go outside to do your talking, " says Miss Barnes, the librarian. " This is not the place to hold committee meetings. " If you are there for business, however, the chances are that Miss Barnes can find your book and have the place marked before you would have found whether the book was in the library or not. She also knows it is not happen-so that you always sit across the table from the same boy or share the window seat with him — you see she knows its Clo-oo-zing time. L. E. COXRAD. M.S., C.E. Professor of Civil Exgixeerixg After the Department of Civil Engineering had been estab- lished at K. S. A. C. the regents in looking about for a man to place at the head of it, found that in the matter of qualification. L. E. Conrad stood far above anv other eligibles. Born in Iowa. 28 ROYAL PURPLE ioio he had received the degree of B. S. from Cornell University in 1904, following with C. E. in 1906 and M. S. in 190S from Lehigh University. Besides these he had to his credit six years of civil engineering practice in the United States and Mexico, including United States government work, railroad and municipal engineering and harhor work. Just prior to coming to K. S. A. C. in. 1908 as Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering, he had done some teaching during his graduate years at Lehigh University. Since coming to K. S. A. C. his work has given entire satisfac- tion and in the fall of 1909 he was elected a member of the Faculty as Professor of Civil Engineering. Under his guidance, Civil Engineering has become one of the must popular courses in the curriculum. While not specialists, the graduates have a thorough practical knowledge of the fundamentals of Railway and Highway, Irrigation, Hydraulic, Geodetic and Structural Engineering, together with the details of Land Sur- veying. JACOB LUMB, M.S. Superintendent Heat and Power " Jake " is the utility man. He knows all about College under- world, just how bad the wires are crossed down there, or where the steam pipes leak and how connections should be made for the new buildings. If teaching a class in Traction Engineering, he can ex- plain anything about an engine or give you the name and the life history of every engine the College ever owned. He is a wise coun- sellor and is noted for his pithy sayings. He holds a Master ' s Degree from K. S. A. C. ANDREY A. POTTER, S.B. Mass. Tech. Professor of Mechanical Engineering Some thirty odd years ago two small boys played about the streets of a small hamlet in Great Russia. Time passes and wc find the boys grown to men, both scientists and among the foremost in their respective lines. The elder is Karapetoff, Professor of Elec- ROYAL PURPLE wio 29 trical Engineering at Cornell, the other, Andrey A. Potter, Professor of Steam Engineering and Thermo-dynamics at K. S. A. C. Profes- sor Potter ' s research work began while he was connected with the General Electric Go at Schenectady, N. Y., being along the lines of thermo-dynamics, especially as connected with steam turbine con- struction. During the time of his work here he has taught every subject included in the Mechanical Engineering course, including all the kindred subjects of the Mechanical Arts courses. His specialty is along the line of applied Thermo-Dynamics in connection with steam and gas engine work. He seems to have an unlimited capacity for doing work and getting work done. With excessively heavy department work he still finds time for much investigation and research. He is also making a study of Thermo-Chemistry. a now wholly undeveloped science. It is quite likely that he will publish a treatise in the near future in which we may expect ideas in advance of the usual ac- cepted theories. He has quite a reputation as a lecturer, both in class and before technical societies. As a teacher Professor Potter strikes terror into the hearts of the Sophomore, but among " the Junior and Senior Engineers he is highly popular. ROBERT H. BROWN, B.M., B.S. Assistant Professor of Music Professor Brown ' s employment in the Music Department fol- lowed his graduation from this College. At the present time he has charge of the violin and orchestra work. He was the organizer of the famous concert band which for several years gave high class concerts both at home and abroad. The work of this band was a large factor in drawing a better class of students to K. S. A. C. He is the author of a text-book, " Elementary Theory of Music and Notation, " and also a " Hand Book for Band Men. " Among the musical students it is unanimously agreed that " Brown " is a good fellow and an artist :n his line. At present he has one of the best amateur symphony orchestras of the West and the music furnished every morning before chapel is at present the only feature of chapel that is worthy of listening- to. 30 ROYAL PURPLE 1910 GEORGE A. DEAN, M.Sc. Assistant Professor of Entomology George A. Dean is a native of Kansas. He holds a state life certificate from the Normal and degree of M. S. from K. S. A. C. Before becoming the Assistant Professor of Entomology he was principal of a ward school in Topeka. He is the Assistant Entomologist of the Kansas Experiment Station and Assistant State Entomologist of the State Entomological Commission. He is author of the " Coccida of Kansas, " ' " The Mound Building Prairie Ant " and of " Insects Injurious to Staple Crops " and has done special work on the San Jose scale. Mr. Dean has the distinction of having been a member of the first foot-ball team that represented K. S. A. C. and was later General Manager of Athletics, which position he filled with great efficiency for years. As an instructor Professor Dean is especially interesting and pleasing, quiet and gentle in his manner, he displays a bit of temper just frequently enough to prove that after all he is human. W. H. ANDREW ' S. B.A. Assistant Professor of Mathematics Professor Andrews has been with the Mathematical Depart- ment only four years, yet during that time he has risen to the rank of assistant professor. Although a teacher of what is usually taken as a dry science, he ; s an exceedingly live man. Among the High Schools of the state he is a well known personage, having frequent calls from them for commencement addresses, and as judge of their literary contests. His ability as an orator is recognized wherever he is heard, his popularity along this line being due to his earnest- ness and sncerity of purpose. He is also interested in Biblical scholarship, and is a teacher of one of the largest Sunday School classes in the city. As yet he has published no books, however, he has a " Theory of C. Quotations " in MSS., written for the pure love of it. He is also interested in non-Eucledian Geometry, in which he expects to do some work in the near future. Heavy College dut : es, however, ROYAL PURPLE 1910 31 prevent his delving into the mysteries of mathematics as much as he desires. ROBERT E. EASTMAN, M.S. Assistant Professor of Forestry To this modern woodsman falls the responsibility of teaching our girls the different quality of the hickory and peach tree gad and the young men to distinguish between a cement and a Cottonwood post. The trees which bring forth no fruit are also pointed out in a parablatic way. He tells the story of the envious man who cut away part of his neighbor ' s grape vine, only to see a marvelous improve- ment in the quality of the grapes, as proof that orchards should be well pruned. His instruction in pruning, however, is mostly theory, the very valuable expediencv of the laboratorv work along this l. ' ne being left to the student. LELAXD E. CALE, B.Sc. (Agr.) Assistant Professor of Soils Leland E. Call is a native of Ohio. Following - his graduation from the University of his home state in 1906, he was made assist- ant Agricultural Chemist at that institution. During his stay there he continued his studies, doing graduate work in " Soils. " When he took charge of the work in soils at K. S. A. C. in l l X)7 there was a single course of sods with only five students enrolled. At present there are six courses with 125 students enrolled. His re- search work is along the line of soil fertility and soil culture. 150 plots of 1-10 acre each, on the new College farm being used for this purpose. ROY A. SEATOX. B.S. Professor of Saxitary Exgixeerixg and Mechanical Drawixg In Prof. Seaton we have another illustrious son of K. S. A. C. First as a student we find him taking the lead in many of the Col- lege enterprises, and at the same time ranking high in his classes, A Variety of Snapshots ROYAL PURPLE igio 33 in mathematics, according to college nomenclature, being classed as a shark. After his graduation he was employed as an assistant in mathematics, afterwards turning his attention more toward mechan- ical engineering, in which department he rose to the rank of Assistant Professor. When the .Mechanical Engineering was sub-divided he was made Professor of the division of Sanitary Engineering and .Mechanical Drawing, which position he now holds. During the past two years he has been carrying on graduate work and will re- ceive his Master ' s degree at Commencement, 1910. At the last meet- ing of the Board of Regents he was granted a year ' s leave of ab- sence, which will be spent in advanced work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. LEONARD W. GOSS, D.V.M. Dr. Goss ; s that exceedingly English-looking gentleman leading that funny-looking clog. He teacher Physiology mostly, the course being a very strong one. In this class, it is needless to say, " That the best laid plans o ' mice an ' men gang aft astray. " Dr. Goss hailed from the State University of Ohio, holding a degree of D. A . M. from that institution. G. E. BRAY. M.E. Assistant Professor of Mechanical Exgixeerixg By securing Mr. Bray, the regents in the Fall of ' 09 added a man of large practical experience and broad technical training, to the Mechanical Engineering Faculty. Mr. Bray graduated from the Uni- versity of Minnesota, with the degree of BALE, in 18°4. During the Summer of 1902 he attended the Summer session of Columbia Uni- versity, and in 1903 attended the Summer session of the University of Minnesota, receiving the degree of M.E. in 1904. He also spent one year, ' 94- ' 95, in the machine shops of Donaldson Davis Mfg. Co., at Minneapolis. From 1895-97 he was in the Engineering de- partment of the Consolidated Mining Co., Mountain Iron. Minn. Since 1897 he has been engaged continually in Manual Training work- in various schools, until in the Fall of ' 09, when he became Assistant Professor of M.E. and Superintendent of the shops at K. S. A. C. 34 ROYAL PURPLE iqio MISS ULMA M. DOW, B.S.

Especially in going up and down stairs she moves like an aeroplane. She was once a D.S. girl at K. S. A. C. herself and therefore knows what became of the extra line Dontripinchum cakes or that half goblin of pineapple sherbet left over from dinner. She wisely refrains, however, from seeing the things which should not be seen, and therein lies her secret. HERBERT H. KING, A.M. Assistant Professor of Chemistry When the students returned in the Pall of ' 06 they found a " new one " mixing the dope in the Chemistry Department. He was an un- known quantity, but looked good, so was given a passing grade and allowed to remain. His name — H. H. King on Sunday, " Chemistry King " any other time. He graduated from Ewing College in 1904, and was Professory of Chemistry at Manchester College the two years following, completing in the meantime, two years of post-graduate work at his Alma Mater, receiving the degree of A.M. in ' 00. Since that time, If student sentiment can be taken as an indication, be has " gotten away good. " Mr. King has done research work on the nicotine content of tobacco, calorimetric values of starch and sugar, and the determina- tion of carbon monoxide by the use of iodine pentoxide. His enthusiasm over K. S. A. C. athletics seems to have begun when Mallon got away for the touchdown which won the game from K. U. He was elected treasurer of the Athletic Association in ' OS and in the Pall of ' 09 was made Assistant Manager of Athletics. JOHN B. WHELAN, A.B., A.M. Assistant Professor of Chemistry Whelan, the energetic young man, who is often seen about the Chemistry Department, hails from our northern neighbor, Nebraska. ROYAL PURPLE ion He graduated from Hillsdale College, ' 03, with degrees of A.B. and Ped.B., from the Nebraska University in 1908, with the degree A.M. He came to Manhattan as instructor in Chemistry immediately after his graduation, beginning work here the Spring term, ' 08. He has been interested in athletics from the beginning, being responsible as coach for the famous track team of ' 09. Ditto l ' HO. Air. Whelan is a man of quite varied career for a man of his age. Between his two college careers are sandwiched in four years of high school teaching. During the last year of his work at the Uni- versity of Nebraska, he was Fellow in Chemistry and was engaged as a lecturer at the institution during the summer of 1907 and the first semester, 1908. During the Summer of 1909 he was a student at the University of Chicago. On the subject of analvsis. Professor " Whelan is regarded as authoritv. At the present his individual research is along the lines of organic reductions and ptomaines. C. O. SWANSON, M.Agr. Assistant Professor of Agricultural Chemistry Mr. Swanson graduated from Carleton College in ' 99. The next four years he spent in teaching in High Schools and the two following years doing graduate in the University of Minnesota. Then after a year ' s work as Instructor in Agricultural Chenr ' stry at Purdue Uni- versity, he became connected with the Kansas Experiment Station in the capacity of Assistant Chemist. In 1909 he was made Assistant Professor of Agricultural Chemistrv, still retaining his position, how- ever, in the Experiment Station. His work along - experimental lines has been quite extensive. The tests in milling and baking were instigated by him. In connection with this work he has designed a middlings purifier and a special baking pan, and has worked out a method of making baking tests which embodies the essential features of all the standard tests used in the United States. On the result of these tests he has written a hulletin which will probably be published in the near future. 36 ROYAL PURPLE iqk ROBERT J. BARNETT, B.S. Assistant Professor of Mathematics This pleasant young looking individual is a native of the Sun- flower state. He is a graduate of Kansas State Agricultural College and the State Normal. After his graduation he spent his time teaching in the grade and high schools of the State until three years ago, when he was made head of the Preparatory Department, which position he held until the abolishment of the department in 1909. He was retained, however, as Assistant Professor of Mathematics. He has a distinct " liking " for athletics and is in well with the " boys. " At the fall election of the Athletic Association he was elected treasurer for the ensuing year. L. H. BEALE, A.B. Assistant Professor of English Professor Beall is an English-speaking native of the Buckeye State. His age is unknown, but he was horn sometime during the last century. After graduating from High School he entered Deni- son LTniversity, graduating from that institution in 1902 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. He then turned pedagogue, being prin- cipal of the High School at Rockwell City, la., from 1902- ' 04, then holding a like position for a year at Ellsworth, Kan. His line of teaching while in High School work was English and Foreign Lan- guage. In 1907 he became Assistant in English at K. S. A. C. and the following year was made Instructor. In 1909 he became Assistant Professor in English, which position he now holds. In addition to his regular college duties Mr. Beall also finds time to take a hand in athletics. In the Spring term, ' 09, he was made assist- ant coach in base-ball and demonstrated his ability in that line by putting out the best second team that has ever represented the college. His results with the foot-ball second team in the Fall of ' 09 were of the same class. One of his exceptionally strong points is that he secures a heavy schedule for his teams. He has one wife.

On leaving the University he became principal of the High School at Rossville, 111. lie taught in several High Schools until in June, 1908, when he entered the University of Chicago as a graduate student in Botany, devoting most of his time to plant physiology. He remained at Chicago until the Fall of 1909 (five quarters) when he came to K. S. A. C. as Assistant Professor of Botany. He :s a mem- ber of the Chicago Chapter of Sigma Xi, and the Gamma Alpha Graduate Scientific Fraternity. F. G. KING, B.S.A. Assistant Professor of Antmal Husbandry This Mr. K ' ng must be either a club or a spade, for the general concession is that the King of Hearts and the King of Diamonds are to be found in other departments. Tt is not the fault of F. G. or A. H. King, as he is sometimes called, that there are no girls in the Animal Husbandry course, furthermore a spade or a club is high in his kind of work anyway. Professor King came to us from Mis- souri University. DR. K. W. STOUDER, D.V.M. Assistant Professor of Veterinary Science Dr. Stouder came to 1 . S. A. C. from the Northwest, where he bad been Veterinary Inspector for the Federal Government, where there was a great chance for a wide range of experience. He also had experience on the instruction force at the Washington State College, being Professor of Surgery and Anatomy at that school. On com ne " to K. S. A. C. he was given the position of Assistant 38 ROYAL PURPLE ioio Professor of Veterinary Science, teacher of Surgery, Materia Medica and charge of the Hospital and practice at the college. He has succeeded in building up a large practice in Manhattan and the sur- rounding country and towns. He also has charge of the manufacture of Blackleg vaccine, which has been used so extensively throughout the state the last few years. He is also carrying on a series of experiments in the use of Bacterium in surgical cases. In Dr. Stouder we have a man that knows more than his pro- fession, and although sometimes misjudged, on short acquaintance, usually in the end he proves to be a friend of the lasting variety. In the past two years that he has been with us he has in many ways proven himself to be a valuable add ' t ion to the instruction staff. ROYAL ft Kl ' l.i: wio .7.1 Class of 1910— History O Ro, We Know, B. S. Then K. S. A. C. . 1910 I LEAR as a bell rang ' out the words in Spiritland and the I " (vNlll shade of Custodian Lewis awakened from its meditation and said, " I knew it! " By a sort of reflex action he was at once impelled in the direction from which the sound had issued. As he hurried along he meditated, " Yes. it is just a hun- dred years ago today since that memorable Commencement daw when the Class of 1910 graduated from old K. S. A. C. ' Twas a great class, the most noted of anv that graduated from that institu- 40 ROYAL PURPLE ioio tion while I was connected with it, but ' twas many a sleepless night they caused me — inventive geniuses, daring rascals with their never- ending series of pranks. But here — Why, it ' s another class meeting. True to their old lime motto, ' Stick together, ' I see. United even in Spiritland. Well, now, they are the limit ! " Glanc ' ng around, he saw the shade of Miss Barbour approach- ing, lines of care showing on her face, for she too, had heard the veil and thought they needed a chaperon and was hurrying, fast as her feeble wings could carry her, to offer her services. " Oh, now Miss Barbour, calm yourself. They ' re doing all right. " " Well, do you know they are? You know hack on earth then- met in my building and 1 always felt that it was my duty to look after them, but they never could see it that way. They just went ahead and — " " Well, my dear Miss Barbour, forget it! But say, did von ever hear about that first meeting that class ever had? It was about two weeks after College opened in the Fall of 1906 — they were Fresh- men then, you know. The ignorant rubes called their meeting for the identical hour and place the ' 08 ' s always met — somehow the} had learned that 12:30 Tuesday was the regular time for class meet- ings. With all the enthusiasm of the young they came. Later the ' OS ' s came also and soon I was attracted by the sound of crashing glass. I ran as fast as I could and arrived just as the last ' 08 was thrust from the door, which was violently shut behind him. It was the first fight and likewise the first victory for the Class of 1 ' 1 0. As I walked away I just happened to look hack in time to see the Freshmen that had come out with the Juniors disappear over the window-sill as they returned to their interrupted class meeting. It was after that they began meeting over in W33 — the only class, by the way, that ever held their meetings outside of the Main Building. " " Oh — those hoys — those hoys — they always were the bane of my life — and the girls — " hut there her pent-up feelings burst forth and the shade of Miss Barbour was drenched with tears. Her con- dition grew so alarming that Custodian Lewis hastened with her to the shades of Mrs. Calvin and Mrs. Van Zile, who bad become fast ROYAL PURPLE ioio 41 friends in Spiritland, and were considered authority on matter- per- taining to health. But even they were unable to relieve her dreadful condftion until they called in the shade of Bacteriology King, who, after a careful examination of a hangr ' ng drop made from Mi-- Bar- bour ' s tears, assured her nurses that the whole trouble was caused in- the Bacillus Enterferi Rejectus. Then they understood at once and knew the only thing to prescribe was absolute rest, so they accordingly did so. " Well, T never thought it would come to this. ' remarked Lewi-. as he walked away. " Hello, old pal, you look depressed. Come over here and visit awhile. What ' s the trouble, anyway? " called out the shade of Ex- President Nichols, as he noticed Lew ' s coming his way. Aroused from his reflections, he told Xichols all about it. " Too bad ' Too bad! but do you know T was just talking ' to McFarland ' s shade this morning, and he was telling me about the first class party that bunch had. It was held in the Women ' s Gymnasium and they played Cross Questions and Silly Answers, Simon savs Thumbs L p and Jerusalem, drank cocoa from their plates and acted green generally. The next morn ' ng a poor sub came into McFarland ' s book-keeping class with tears in his eyes. He inquired what the trouble was. Between his sobs the sub related how those heartless Freshmen had risen up in their might and ordered the subs to step out and form an organization of their own. Xow the Freshmen had had a fine party and the subs weren ' t even invited. McFarland comforted him as best he could and advised h ' m to brace up and study his book-keep- ing a little harder and maybe some day he could be a Freshman, too. " " That ' s just like McFarland. fie was a true friend of the young — such a fatherly old man. " " Speaking of class parties reminds me that the girls entertained the boys during the Winter term and then one night during the Spring term the class journeyed up the P lue in boats to Snag Bend for a p ' enic. There was a raid or something that night. I heard, but try hard as I could I never did learn the straight about it. Do vou know what it was, Lewis? " 42 ROYAL PURPLE win " Just a little I overheard one day, for of course I was not there. It seems that a few ' 09 ' s came up the Blue that night and anchored their boat along the east bank where the ' 10 crafts were. Then they wandered off into the woods. Later, when they had decided to go home, the boat could not be found. Some of the ' 10 ' s had rowed home in it and those poor ' 09 ' s started to walk back along the bank, but, growing tired, the boys hired a farmer to haul them to town. They certainly felt — Hi, there, Mike, come over and talk awhile. We were just discussing the ' 10 class. Do you remember anything about them? " " Do I? Hello, Prexy. — Why, I should smile! The very first term they were in College they organized a foot-ball team. They beat the ' 09 ' s that year and gave the never-defeated ' 07 ' s the fight of their College career. But out of that husky eleven I got six first team players and five other Freshmen made good that year without any class preliminaries. At basket-ball the class never had much luck, but still I gleaned six star players from amongst them. On the track the} - were good — held five College records — and some of them had it in such chronic form that they never entered a meet without breaking a record. " " How about base-ball, Mike? " queried Nichols ' shade. " Let me see — one — two — three —yes, there were six of then ' , one of whom played four years, won the batting trophy twice and was manager his Senior year in College. I ' ll tell you more after awhile. But come on, don ' t lie a bunch of dubs sitting over here under a tree, I ' ve a bouquet to deliver to Mrs. Van Zile, someone sick over there, I believe. Come, go with me. " As the three walked along they continued their discussion of the ' 10 cl ass. President Nichols remembered hearing about the party thev held earlv next Fall. Tt was over in Kedzie, where they guessed conundrums, tried conversational stunts and learned their fortunes from a palmist. Soon afterward they had a skating party in the rink down town. " ( h, they were always doing something. " " Yes, I guess they were, " chimed in Lewis. " They took for their seats in chapel the center section of the pit, where no other ROYAL PURPLE ioio 43 class had ever sat before. Merc they held forth, throwing out all intruders and furnishing interest to an otherwise dry chapel. Bui that was mild compared to some things I ' m going to relate now of their Sophomore year. Fall term the Hurt. Department seeded the parade grounds in front of Anderson Hall. The grass came up and along with it some wheat planted in the numerals 1910. It was rather late in the Fall, hence the wheat didn ' t get high enough to attract much attention before cold weather caught it. In the Spring the lawn mower kept it down, so few knew anything about it. ' Twas surely funny to watch some of those ' 10 boys peer out the upstairs windows in Main and Chemistry, to see how their wheat crop was growing. just smiled and looked the other way. But there was one affair I have charged up against that crowd I wasn ' t so jovial about — " " What ' s that. Lewis? " asked Mike. " Why, that affair over in the Gym. the night the Freshies had a party. They had made arrangements to keep the lights on until 10:30, but about nine the house was suddenly shrouded in darkness and everyone scrambled for the door in a hurry, I tell you. It seems there were some Sophs on the inside as well as on the outside and when the wires were cut, some bottles were uncorked also. Xext year when the Tl ' s took chemistry, they learned that the disagree- able odor they noticed that night was due to FbS instead of the mere cutting of electric light wires. " " God bless you! I never heard that before, " exclaimed Mike. " Perhaps not. The facts are we had so much trouble that year that we became ashamed of ourselves and decided to keep quiet for the sake of our rep. But now I have started I ' m going to make a clean breast of it all. Of course you remember the old clock that used to hang in the Main Hall — hang and never ran — and doubt- less, too, you recall the suddenness and mystery of its disappear- ance. At one time the old relic did good service, but by the year 1908 it had become old and feeble and determined to stop running. Owing to its very antiquity, the authorities endeavored to revive it. but several imaginative members of the TO class concluded that its 44 ROYAL PURPLE iqio large and shining pendulum would make excellent watch charms and that its innermost working parts might look better if used as suitcase tags. The first thing the public knew, the frame or case of the clock was discovered suspended from the electric light on the Co-op corner. Whether it was a case of murder or plain suicide could not be determined, although Professor Price and the rest of the ' Defective ' force of the school was brought into service. The criminals had left no trace affording a clew to the solution of the mystery. By the use of supernatural power and an exceedingly strong magnifying lense we discovered that the reason no watch charms, etc., appeared was because the supposed solid brass pen- dulum was but a hollow zinc affair, the weights were of cast iron and the entire working parts consisted of about six wheels. " " That ' s a good one. Best joke vet, " remarked Mike. ROYAL I ' lKl ' I.li tqio 45 " .Musi have made quite an impression on you, Lewis, " uttered Nichols. " Impression, did you say? Well, please tell me whal those ' 10 ' s haven ' t made an impression on, will you? — In just a link- while the ' dog-houses ' on the new D. S. blossomed nut in black and orange. ' Twas after that, in pure desperation, 1 called for help and die au- thorities gave me a night watchman. I ' m glad of one thing, though, the ' 09 ' s had their party down town that term so I couldn ' t he ex- pected to keep the ' 10 ' s from taking their socks. " Twas the first lime that stunt was ever tried, but far from the last. " " Tell me about the night watchman. Hid he get some pep and settle matters? " queried Mike. " His first night on duty was a peaceahle one, hut the next morn- ing there was trouble to pay. Prof. Kinzer came around with a great squeal about some of Ids fine stock being gone. There was no trace left and it was fully a vear before I learned that a bunch of tens had a ' possum roast on Wild Cat that night. " Here Mike burst into a chuckle and slyly said, " They ran off with everything but the squeal, eh? " Just then the trio arrived at the spot where Mrs. Van Zile and Mrs. Calvin were. Mike gave the flowers and inquired about Miss Barbour. They learned she had been delirious part of the time and had muttered some things about a party the TO ' s had had the " Winter term, when they were Sophs. The bovs entertained the girls the fore part of the evening in Kedzie Hall and then served the banquet in the Gym. Between acts there was a speedv chase on the campus, for a bunch of ' 09 ' s had tried to run away with the refreshments. They failed signally. At this Lewis ' shade was seen distinctly to wince. He knew all about it. but it was one of those things he had tried to keep still. Then Mrs. Calvin told them Miss Barbour had gone to sleep again only for a few moments when she lapsed into delirium once more and murmured strange things about red pepper, kidnaping and a skating rink partv. They shook their heads and walked away leaving the two wo- men talking. Mrs. Calvin related to Mrs. Van Zile bow the °irls 46 ROYAL PURPLE ion had entertained the boys by a picnic on Wild Cat the following Spring- and of the good time they all had. She knew about it. he- cause her girl was there. Mrs. Van Zile then told Mrs. Calvin about another picnic the ' 10 ' s had at the same place the Fall they were Juniors. The special features were pumpkin pie and cider. Evi- dently there was a superabundance of the former, for the next morn- ing the class ate pumpkin pie in chapel and poor Dr. Brink was both incensed and horrified. Still he had to admit that the class always did rank high in scholarship and ' twould never do to can them all even for an " overflow of animal spirits in chapel. " Curious enough, at that same moment Lewis was telling Mike and Nichols about the class gavel that one of the boys presented with weird and wondrous speech that night. It was this way, " Dur- ing the Spring of 1908 it was found advisable to move the water tank from in front of the Yet building to its present site. After being raised and put upon the greased track it was moved a short distance late in the afternoon. The next p. m. was the ' 10- ' ll base- ball game. Anticipating a victory, I suppose, some of the ' 10 ' s had constructed a large galvanized iron pennant and finished it in the class colors with the intention of fastening it to the center pole of the tank roof and then remove the iron ladder from the side of the tank, thus cutting off the possibilities of damage to the pennant. With the wind traveling at the rate of 10,000 miles an hour at mid- night the feat was performed. I would have gotten out and called halt, hut 1 slept unusually sound that night or the wind made too much noise. Anyhow 1 was ignorant of it until early morning, when I awoke and saw what had happened. Those boys had not reckoned with my extension ladder, however, and I climbed up and collected the pennant for my museum before very many saw it. In doing so, I noticed about half of the top knob of the tank was gone. Later I learned that the class had a fine new gavel and block and 1 said to myself it would have better been block and chains and then 1 might rest awhile. " Mike recalled that lie hadn ' t finished telling about athletics yet. He thought this a good time to do it, so he said: " I believe I prom- ised to tell you about the base-ball teams. The ' 10 ' s won the chain- ROYAL PURPLE ion pionship twice and I think they did again their Senior year, but jusl can ' t remember clearly, somehow. I know they would have won in foot-ball that year only the weather broke Up and they didn ' t get to play. In the Junior year they won from the Sophs in the greatest game ever played at K. S. A. C. by a score of 4 to 4. And their basket-ball girls — Miss Barbour said they trained consistently., worked hard and always followed her instructions. Although not always victorious, yet more than one class from proud Seniors ( ' 07 ) to humble Freshmen ( " 111 felt the sting of defeat from their hands. But I must be going. So long. " In a few moments Lewis remembered he had failed to mention a certain matter of business to Miss Van Zile, so he took his leave of Nichols and went back. Soon their affairs were settled and a- they each had plenty of time — for Spiritland differs from earth — the}- engaged in a friendly chat. This seemed to be a dav of retro- spection and all the shades from K. S. A. C. were discussing the 1910 class, for that loomed up above every memory in their minds. " There is one event I helieve I never shall forget. " remarked Mrs. Van Zile. " Twas the time the ' 09 ' s had their big party in the new D. S. I ' ll admit your boys did their best, but it was days before anyone could go into those reception rooms without being seized with a violent fit of sneezing. That red pepper was terrible. Can you tell me how those TO boys got in the building that night? I never did get that quite clear. " " Why, I thought yon knew all about that. Well, about 6 o ' clock two fellows entered the heat and light tunnel at the manhole in the cement walk in front of the D. S. Thev followed it into the base- ment. Then hurrying into the southwest laboratorv thev opened a window and in came about twenty-five more of their class. Next they severed the light connection and rushed upstairs and made the raid on the Senior decorations and refreshments, and disappeared as suddenly as they had came. Twas a skillfully worked out affair — a triumph for the ' 10 ' s and a sad blow to the ' 09 ' s. " " I declare, " exclaimed Mrs. Van Z ' le. " hut. the Senior class didn ' t seem to feel sore over it long, for the next term invitations 48 ROYAL PURPLE ioio were issued to the Senior- Junior reception. It was a very enjoyable affair and the banquet was especially good — all but the ptomaines that unfortunately crept in and caused so much suffering for a few days. " " Those ptomaines were quite a joke, although a painful one. The ' 09 ' s hated that, too, as bad as any one could. " " ] kimw they did. Well, soon after the reception the ' 10 ' s en- tertained themselves in the Commercial Club Hall. They had a track meet — one of the most novel entertainment schemes ever worked out here. ' Twas a big success in every way. That was the last of the social events until the Junior-Senior Spring term — swellest of its kind ever given at K. S. A. C. ' Idle play that night was a particularly cute take-off on some of the Seniors and instructors and then an ex- cellent banquet was served in a pleasing manner. Those boys and girls sure worked on that and their reputation as the best entertainers in College was firmly established. " " Yes, I heard it was pretty fine, but T was glad when it was all over. You know the long lost Shepherd ' s Crook appeared again that night and was handed clown to the Juniors. T feared trouble, but evidently the Sophs knew the Juniors ' fighting spirit and attempted nothing. " But the shade of Custodian Lewis sighed. Their conversation continued and finally they decided to call on the shade of President Waters to hear about a recent tour he had made in Spiritland. As they walked they told each other the in- cidents connected with the ' 10 ' s picnic on Prospect early the next Fall. In fact, the invitations were out before College opened. It was a jolly informal affair and some of the ' 10 boys ate so many melons that there was not a single patch raided around town for three weeks. They had scarcely finished talking over the picnic when the shade of Prof. Price approached with the announcement that a very rare book had been found and put on the reference shelves of the Spirit- land library — a source of original documents. It was a canvas bound book filled with the minutes of the Class of 1 ( 1 during their Senior year in College. Being in the handwriting of the secretaries added both interest and value to it. That day Miss Barnes ' shade, librarian in Spiritland also, experienced much trouble, for there was a great ROY. 1L PURPLE toio 49 rush to sec the new book and even the most dignified and correct Profs, forgot themselves in their eagerness and spoke out loud, " You ' ll let me have it when you are through, won ' t you? " — " I can look over your shoulder, " and similar remarks. The book contained much iif interest, for in it were records of how the class in a very parliamentary manner conducted all class meetings. It told of the oratory and choice phrases used as they discussed the many momentous questions that presented themselves — tor does not the Senior have many problems that confront no other class? Here was told how at the class elections the candidates stood firmly upon their platforms and their friends and supporters waxed eloquent over their great merit. The officers were always elected without blood-shed and when once elected, served faithfully. During this year the walls of W33 resounded with oratory such as no oratorical contest ever produced, about caps and gowns and in this the class was to take the first step forward. Class pins, too, were much discussed, but finally a design was adopted of such merit that all the world wondered. All these and many other things were hinted at, but we have not time to tell of all. But on a day when all sat quietly assembled, one began a speech of marvelous language. Pausing not for breath he plunged madly into his theme and as if bv magic, before the enraptured assembly appeared beautiful black sweaters with bright ' 10 ' s on them. Then the inspired orator an- nounced that they were due the gi rls of the basket-ball teams for their bard work and pluck they had exhibited in holding up the high name of the class. With the return of Spring and as the College duties were lightened and thoughts of the short time they had to spend in Col- lege together were called to mind by gentle reminders from the secretary, such marvelous works of literature were produced that Miss Barnes called for leather bound copies to be placed in the Col- lege library and these were theses. And they held many picnics that term, some two, some four, some six, and ending with a wonderful banquet spread by the ' ll ' s where the Shepherd ' s Crook was handed down to the Tuniors. 50 ROYAL PURPLE roio They had now arrived at the office of the shade of President Waters and remarked after greeting him that they had been talking over old times and the ' 10 class of K. S. A. C. " A great class, " re- marked Waters. " Decidedly a most interesting bunch, and competent people, too. I only knew them a year in College, but I saw there was something to them, so I watched their career in after life. They all made good — every one of them. And I note, too, they are as greal leaders in Spiritland as they were on earth. A most remarkable class. " ROYAL PURPLE ion Louis C. Aicher Minnie Alexander LOUIS C.

Among them is the reason why gentlemen of color are allowed to run loose on the campus. ROYAL PURPLE iqio 73 Harold William Gore Samuel S. Gross HAROLD WILLIAM GORE When a boy Gore lived in Missouri, but finding- it would be im- possible for him to get his full growth in so moist a climate he de- cided to come to Kansas. He has been very progressive since be- coming a ' 10 and barring a few dozen scrapes he has behaved very well. While a Sophomore he was stricken with a severe affliction bordering on mental disorders caused by the Bacillus Amo. Although he has had the best of care and attention, we believe the infection to be a fatal one and so can see but few hopes in the future for him. SAMUEL S. GROSS " Fud " came here from Abilene after having graduated from the high school at that place. The Senior Architects claim him as a member. He is fat and good-natured and looks especially well in a Derby hat. Just why he took the Architect course nobody seems to know, but the fact that he is learning to build homes looks rather suspicious. After graduation he intends to go to some thriving town in the West and hang out an Architect ' s slv ' ngle. 74 ROYAL PURPLE ioio Paul D. Guy Thomas Hall PAUL D. GUY This youthful gentleman hails from Cowley county and is espe- cially noted for his dressy appearance. Guy is very modest and unas- suming, even to the extent that he has heen too timid to make any serious designs on anyone of the D. S. course. He has shown very efficient class work and has been admired by those who know him. He will graduate from the Electrical Engineering course. THOMAS HALL " Tommy " is another one of our popular chaps. He is the owner of the big red buzz wagon, and his jovial, " Want a ride? " is always ready when he meets a classmate. " Tommy " had a case soon after he entered College and has never quite recovered from it since, but he holds that he is immune to other attacks. Tom has been born and bred a farmer and intends to add dignity to that profession by the addition of his knowledge accumulated at K. S.A. C. ROYAL PURPLE wio 7. " , Ralph R. Hand Carrie Harris RALPH R. HAND Ralph is a quiet, good looking sort of fellow that has always taken his College life easily, never letting anything worry him. His performing on the violin early won him a heart, which he has sacredly guarded. As a student he has proven his ability and expects to prac- tice his College knowledge on a Southern Kansas farm. His thesis deals with mules and it is probably from this stubborn subject that he has acquired the firmness with which he holds to his ideas in regard to such things as commencement wearing apparel. CARRIE HARRIS Carrie has been with us from the start and always with a loyal heart. She has never missed a class " blow-out " and while she has never written any poetry, yet on one of these occasions she was the inspiration for an " Ode to a Kiss. " Carrie has worked hard while in Co llege and is looking forward to a rest. She has served the class as president and secretary. 76 ROYAL PURPLE ion Floyd Harrison Ella Hathwav FLOYD HARRISON " Skeet " for short, his full name being " Skeeter, " was nick- named on account of his stature, but even as in the time of Zacchaeus, it ' s the little man who generally accomplishes what he sets out to do. Floyd has had to work hard, for he ' s an Engineer, and as a consequence has had very little time to mix with the Seniors in general, hut has been a " good fellow " with his classmates and al- ways wears a smile. He has not decided yet whether to accept the position of head engineer of the Baldwin Locomotive Works or some of the smaller jobs which will not place such a responsibility upon him, hut wha tever he undertakes he is liable to be successful, for he is a pusher. ELLA HATHWAY Tall and stately is this jewel from Jewell county. She is a dili- gent student and exercises her best efforts in behalf of the Y. YV. C. A. Her sunny disposition and kind manner have won for her many friends. Ella ' s highest ambition is the uplifting of the heathen. ROYAL PURPLE ion 77 Christine Heim Helen Henderson CHRISTINE HEIM Chrissy is an ideal girl, we would say, for she is pretty, interest- ing and studious. She has a patent on that jolly laugh, for it seems that no one else can acquire it. To say that Chrissy is one of the most popular girls in the class would be putting it mildly. She is one that does things well. One of her stunts is to get weekly letters from little tots around her home. This can show better than any- thing else her loyable disposition. She played on the TO basket-ball team ; she played on the stage, and she played with hearts, so we fear that some day " Sue " will really and truly give herself away. HELEN HENDERSON " Sport " works hard, plays hard and talks hard. Her College career may be described as a grand rush, in which she swallowed all the ayailable knowledge necessary for a diploma and then slowly consumed the P. G. ' s. She is a mechanical genius, haying special- ized in woodwork and to some extent worked Stone. In the land of Philosophy and Psychology she is bright and shining, and in the realm of the poets she has also dwelt; here she may decide to remain until Cupid calls the roll. 78 ROYAL PURPLE ioio U« Viola Hepler H.

" What shall 1 do to he forever known And make the aee to come mv own? " H. E. HERSHEY From his looks you would probably think that " Jack " is satisfied with himself, but he isn ' t, having imbibed the idea (during the short course season), that it takes two to make up a full fledged person. He is an Electrical Engineer with advanced ideas on telephony. Has a record of never letting a class recite if he was not prepared on the lesson himself. His method is to ask questions, and, needless to sav, he is well practiced in his art. ROY. 1 1.

IRWIN Carl is a quiet, non-assuming sort of a man, seldom beard from, but one that will be beard of when he once starts on bis life work. His great cbaracteristic, his stick-to-it-ness, bas shown itself quite prominent during his four years in College. As yet he is not in love, but when once caught in the net, he will prove as constant in love as he has in work. ROYAL PURPLE ion si Emma Irving Roy M.

She is an exceptionally good and conscientious student, even going so far as to write thorough papers upon subjects which were never called for. Such good work made her a great favorite with the Profs. She is a D. S. student, but instead of airing all this up-to-date knowledge, she intends to keep it in store, while she wields the rod over the youthful ruralites. JESSE KEEBLE Jesse is a person who meets every situation on the optimistic side and is always ready and willing to tackle the difficult problems of life. Pomp and vanity are foreign to his nature and to the close observer it appears that he has not as yet made his break into society. He is an A.

He is a good-natured student and very enthusiastic about his studies. While in school he has devoted much time to music, being a mem- ber of the K. S. A. C. Orchestra and other musical organizations. He is a good literarv man and is broad in society policies. He grad- uates from the G.

By a vote, of the hoys at least, she is our prettiest girl. Throughout her College career her scholar- ship has been high, still she has found time to take an exceedingly active part in outside College life and has won the admiration of all who know her. She is as independent as the Thirteen Original Colonies, but is always ready to listen to reason. A brilliant career awaits her. WILLARD W. LAWTON " He thinks deep thoughts, His deeds become this man. " W. W. Lawton is one of the kind who believe that haste makes waste and will no doubt " get there " before many others who are more swift. Although neither wild nor ferocious, he is said to he very much interested in Cages. He is a Civil Engineer and has a large asset in his natural ability along that line, being both a deep thinker and a painstak ' ng workman. ROYAL PURPLE ion 85 Emma Lee D.

She is truly one of the girls of the class. Her greatest characteristic is her abnormal appetite for mathematics, hut we hope with sufficient and repeated application of the subject, that she will become satisfied and look to brighter things, perhaps down to Cuban shores. D. ERXEST LEWIS D. E. is one of the type of man that one cannot help but admire. He finds time for everything in College. He has gone through Col- lege entirely on his own efforts, having worked in the co-op hook store both as ass : stant manager and as manager. In spite of the work connected with these positions and his regular College work, he has found time to belong to several musical organizations, and this spring landed a berth on the pitching staff on the base-hall squad. He will graduate from the Hort. course. ROYAL PURPLE igio Albert K. Losli Lillian Lowrance ALBERT R. LOSH Dick is a pusher, an advocate of good times and a thorough student. He has had much worldly experience before coming to College and has most of the rough worn off. In fact, he is quite smooth at times. He is authority in his class rooms on most any Mechan ical Engineering subject. He is an able talker and uses it to an advantage in opposing anything that comes up in class meet- ing. Much of his time is spent in the analysis of the fair sex, of which he is considered authority. Nevertheless he sometimes makes mistakes, which he franklv confesses. LILLIAN LOWRANCE Lill is a jolly, lovable girl, who believes that monotony is a thing to be avoided. Although she sometimes changes her mind about things, we know that she rings true gold. She has worked hard, yet had plenty of time to take the sentimental moonlight strolls she is so fond of. Her chr ' ef characteristic is loving the D.

While his career has not been all sunshine, yet his ready smile and firm handshake proclaim him for what he is and as a man of medical skill and abilitv he stands second to none in his class. ROLAND LOYD This modern Benjamin Franklin is a rival of the lightning itself as regards rapidity of action. Indeed, it would be impossible for him to do his customary amount of work if he did not go at a 1:55%. gait. He is an Electrical Engineer and is one of the top-notchers.

ROYAL PURPLE 89 Virgie McCray Clyde McKee VIRGIE McCRAY Virgie has the advantage of most of the girls in the class, in that she has a parlor of her own and she has never yet heen exclusive in its use. Any of her friends are welcome there. Like most girls, she has had her hoodoos in the study line. We were thinking- it was Ger- man, hut are not certar ' n. But then, whatever it was she stayed with it, which is the main thing. Virgie has a grievance on the system of assigning and it is one case that is well founded. Yirgie is well liked by all. CLYDE McKEE Clyde is a Kansas lad who helieves in tilling the mantle rock of the earth as a worthy vocation for life. His preparation while in College has, however, in no wise been one-sided as he has ever been under the individual, faithful, earnest, devoted, worshiping influence of a character receiving training hi another phase of usefulness. He has done good, creditable work in various phases of College life, and reached the distinction of societv orator, representing the Alpha Betas in the annual Oratorical contest. 90 ROYAL PURPLE igio Mabel McKenzie S.

She was almost always frightened at examinations, but usually came out with tip-top grades. S. A. Mc WILLIAMS Sam is a little, blue-eyed Irishman and seems to be proud of the fact. He came here quite a while ago — so long ago, in fact, that he does not remember just exactly when it was, but he has not been in school continually. He claims Washington county as his home. Sam has two special stunts — one of selling aluminum cooking utensils and the other of patronizing the C, R. I. P. system, over which he takes frequent trips westward to a small town in Smith county, and we fear that some day he will not buy a return trip ticket. In spile of all this he is a good student and gives close attent : on to his books, when he has nothing else to do. He is a graduate of the Civil En- gineering course.

Mae has worked hard for the three short years she has been in College and has succeeded in making good in studies and in her good times. She claims to be a bachelor girl with Grace as a reinforcement. KARL CLAY MANNY Casey is one of the older members of the class, having entered College several years ago, but at that early age did not fully appre- ciate the value of a College training and dropped out of school. Later, realizing his mistake, he returned and has been working out his degree along the lines of Horticulture. He was a member of the fruit judging team which outscored the Iowa Aggie team at Council Bluffs last Fall. His ready Irish wit and pleasing manner have won him a host of friends, especially with the girls is he a social lion. His cases have been numerous, but never serious, and he will probably enlarge his list to twice its size before he finally signs that lifelong contract. 92 ROYAL PURPLE ioio Charles L.

While we have many amateur politicians who sway the class meetings with their oratory, yet here is a member who has moved the people of a whole county, and now holds the office of Register of Deeds of Riley County. A General Science by en- vironment, a politician by heredity, we predict for him a great political future. ROY MASHETER Roy happened into the famous balls of K. S. A. C. in the I ' all of ' 07. He has a vision of reaching the climax of bis college career in the Spring of ' 10. His education is founded upon a rock laid in the graded and High School at Sabetha. Under the tender care of Professor Kinzer and numerous other Profs, he has plodded along in the course of Animal Husbandry. He doesn ' t seem inclined to cap- ture a D.

He earned good grades all the way through College and we believe he will make a success of whatever he undertakes. We see in our minds a picture of John, flourishing upon a farm in company with a former member of our class. VINCENT MECKE " Mick " is a queer little scamp. Always on time to start an argument. He is hardly ever satisfied and always suggests an im- provement. His errors are frequent, but his amendments are more frequent. He is little of stature, dark in complexion and expressive in mind.

TELIE NAEZIGER In all his college career Telie has never been known to be in a hurry or get excited. Steady and reliable, he has completed the course of Civil Engineering at K. S. A.

Since then he has worked hard and has never allowed himself to stray from duty ' s path. So far as we know he has never had any serious designs on any member of the D. S. course. He is not a good hluffer and what he has ob- tained in school came from hard work. GLADYS NICHOLS Gladys has the " Best of God ' s gifts, " the gift of making friends, and by virtue of these traits she will be able to follow the advice of the writer who says: " Compass happ ' ness, since happiness alone is victory. What yon make of life it will be to yon. Take it up bravely, bear it on joyfully, lay it down triumphantly. " Gladys has many friends, and those who know her best love her most.

She has a mind of her own, although you would not always know it. She is oratoricallv bent. WILLIAM ORR " Billy " is one of the sages of the class, as anyone can see by his fast growing beard. He isn ' t always graceful, but we believe thar by continued practice in appearing before audiences, speaking on the subject of Woman ' s Rights, that he will develop into a veritable lady ' s man. Billy does a great deal of sound reasoning and his earnest brown eyes are quite convincing. He is a G. S. and intends to become an instructor, we imagine in philosophy.

Our class without Hope would be desolate and bare. She came as a young maiden, willing to learn.

Tom has proved that a person can take part in all branches of athletics and yet make Es at the end of the term. At the beginning of Tom ' s Senior year he possessed one " K " with one star upon it.

A desire for more rapid improvement than that offered by local conditions brought him to K. S. A. C, where he chose Civil Engineering as a profession.

He also was a substitute on the first foot-ball team of 1906 and the next year won a regular place, which he has filled with credit to himself and the College each year since.

Whether this had any particular bearing upon his subsequent career is a question, but the fact that he has been a student of Military Science throughout his College career is rather strik ' ng.

Organization was at last accomplished, being attended by the usual difficulties. The then Freshman class was represented at our first class party by Elmer Kittel and others. A marshmallow roast came next and a burned-fingered, sticky-faced crowd learned how to " cook " marshmallows. During our Freshman year we took an active part in athletics and our teams made a good showing, but we had no championships. At this time we participated actively in the K. U. -Aggie-Legislature affair and had hardly begun to feel that we were really a part of the school till it was June again. Returning in 1909 we adopted the slogan: " The Sophomore Class for the T2 ' s, " and have found that it helps class spirit to draw class lines. Our picnic in the fall was given on short notice, but we were able to give the first social event of the school year. Our next, a party at the Gym, was unique in that there were more T2 ' s present than visitors. The three non-classmen present en- riched the treasury by generous donations. Preparations were early made for a foot-ball team and in a short time they traveled to Alma, winning 23-0. Hard work on our part found us ready to play the annual Soph-Fresh foot-ball game, but when we learned ; t was their intention to play subs and preps in addition to regular classmen, we stood for straight class ball and with the Seniors ' aid were able to get a ruling through the Students ' Council which makes our class games as clean as our varsity ball.

This course is an extensive one, consisting of lectures by the best men on the platform, musicals of the highest class, and artists in many other lines, giving a course of varied entertainment and invaluable instruction. The financial needs of the committee in securing the best talent are easily met by the low admiss ion fees, which are readily paid by large audiences. Each year the committee endeavors to present a stronger and better course to the patrons, and usually are quite successful. However, it is almost impossible to have every number entirely satisfactory and pleasing to all. For this we cannot blame the committee, for they spend much time and thought in the efforts to choose the best which can be secured. They are to be commended upon their success and we hope the future committees will keep the high standard set by the committees in the past.

Even in so busy a place as college, one can live in a secluded way that tends to let him grow old without broadening in a moral and intellectual way. From this conclusion it was decided by a group of girls to organ- ize a girls ' society in the Fall term of 1887 at K. S. A. C. There were in the College at that time flourishing boys ' societies, the Hamiltons and Websters, also a mixed society, the Alpha Betas, but the need of one exclusively for girls had been evident for some time. There were twenty-three charter members of the Ionian Society. The Society has developed and grown at a fast rate, until it was necessary to set a limit of membership at one hundred. Only girls with a desire for literary training are in the society, for those who are here for " fun " only are usually debarred. This means that by graduation time each year many of the girl leaders of College enter- prises are to be found in this society. We excel in oratory and literary work. We debate and handle parliamentary law well, yet we do not neglect the social side of College life. We usually have a " spread " or so for ourselves, then an annual entertainment for the Hamiltons (our brother society) and at the annual egg roast in the Spring we are their guests. We must say, how- ever, in justice to our society, that we do not emphasize the social side as much as the literary, for we believe that herein lies an education in itself. To be able to go before an audience and appear well, giving either argument, reading or music, is no mean accomplishment. There are now ninety-six enrolled in our society, of which twenty-four are Seniors. The object of our society is " For the mutual improvement and the cultivation of the forensic art, literature and music. " Stress is laid upon the first clause, hence our motto: " Diamond cut Diamond. " 152 ROYAL PURPLE ioio Officers Fall Winter Spring President: A. J. Ostlund B. D.

HAMILTON ftJTH CONQUERS ALL THINGS " | 154 ROYAL PURPLE igio The Hamilton Society HE Hamilton Society is an organization with a limited mem- bership of young ' men, of ambition, high ideals, and good scholarship. The Society stands forth in the College life of its members as an agency tending to uplift them in the phases of life that can be acquired only through association with men of congenial nature, and like ideals. The society, especially in a school of this kind, is a factor whose influence is realized more in after life than any study or branch taken up n the class-room. The world is the habitat of men. and it is men, not books, with whom we are to come in contact when we shall turn our heads from ill ' s place. The society affords this con- tact with men. The Hamiltons believe in the development otf their members in other ways than the pure literary, such would only be competition to the class-room; they believe that there are features of an educa- tion for which provision cannot lie made in a curriculum. They believe that the society is a miniature of the real life to lie encoun- tered later, and that it furnishes the battle-ground upon which the mimic battles of life can be fought. The society seryes to differentiate; it class ' ties the pushers, and leaners, the swimmers and floaters, the brilliant and the less illustrious. The powers are unlimited, and the benefits derived through as- sociation with one hundred energetic college men are of the kind whose value is not measured in the shekels of the miser. As Hamiltons we believe that being members of such an or- ganization means more than belonging to a crowd meeting once a week. We believe that we have been granted a rare opportunity, wherein we may both he of service, and derive a lasting benefit.

Much improvement has been manifested. The programs have been good, due partly to the change in time of meeting from Saturday afternoon to Monday e vening, and also to the lively interest of the individual members. Debating has had a promi- nent place in the programs. The year started off well with Maybeth Robison in the President ' s chair and D. C. Bascom as Vice-President. One of the first and most successful events of the year in the Society was a banquet given to the alumni Alpha Betas in the celebration of the Society ' s forty-first anniversary. As holidays drew near the annual " Kid Party " was held. For the Winter term, Harlan Deaver was installed as President and Ethel Justin as Vice-President. The Oratorical Contest claimed much attention during the first part of the term and much enthusiasm was shown. The Spring term election placed Ethel Justin as President and Harry Feary as Vice-President. The work during the year has been well done and the satisfaction that comes from tasks well performed reminds one that it is worth the time and labor expended.

As we look back over the year ' s work, we can see with a feeling of satisfaction that in many ways this has been the most successful year in the history of the Franks. Although not many high honors have been won on the field of contest, a retrospect of the general work and development of the members show that the work of the Society has been unsur- passed. It has been the aim of the Program Committee to have each member to appear on the program as often as possible and to give to each one not alwavs what he could do best, but rather what would help him most. The aim of the Society has not been to de- velop a few polished orators, but to make of each member an able speaker ; one who can defend himself intelligently before the audi- ence with which he is likely to meet. The programs of the year have been good without exception. Several evenings have been spent very profitably with some of our American authors. Illustrations by means of a stereopticon have added much interest to several meetings. A recent program was conducted as a Farmers ' Institute, the most interesting feature of which was a very practical Domestic Science Demonstration by two of our Junior girls. The Engineers aided in the demonstration by installing an electrical stove for the occasion. It is gratifying to note that the programs have been free from trashiness ; that our business sessions have been lively, and that we have found it neces- sary to revise our constitution on account of the growth and the development of better methods. The social events of the year have not been very numerous. There have been so many other social affairs interfering with So- ciety work that we have felt that our regular work would be more beneficial to us. During the Fall term we indulged in a masked party, but all are looking forward now to the big social event of the vear, the annual ride into the country behind the bier traction 166 ROYAL PURPLE ioio Athenian Motto We Strive to Conquer Orator L.

They were permanently organized and a constitution adopted on January 12, 1907. On March 8th, following " , they were a charter by the State of Kansas. Notwithstanding the difficulty of being - compelled to meet in a class-room for the first three years of their existence, the society made a substantial growth and did very cred ' table work. There was much speculation as to the possible winner, but the one man whom all the societies feared was Folsom. There was no surprise, therefore, when the decision giving him first place was announced. His subject, " Truth and Her Champions, " is a pure outgrowth of the principles which govern his dailv life, but as " no monument is unveiled at the time it is built, " that eventful night, January 29, 1910, unve ' led a character wherein work and devotion to truth had won its laurels. In the Inter-Society debating contests, held for the purpose of determining the College debating team, the Athenians were also quite successful, having placed two men, W. S. Davison and L. C. Christie, on the College team. One of the enjoyable events of the vear in Athenian circles oc- curs in the Spring term, when the members w th their invited guests sojourn to some peaceful secluded resort for social merriment and the development of the esthetic side of their natures. 168 ROYAL PURPLE iqio Altitudo Atheniensis PON Olympus ' s dizzying crest I stand in dreamy thrall And gaze with gods and goddesses across time ' s hindering " wall. Great Zeus reveals to me the power of his creative wand, And shows to me the source of law, and love ' s eternal bond; How Cosmos from the Chaos came, and Earth, by his decrees ; And from the Earth Athenians, the true autochthones. Of all the pleasures life may hold there is none more sublime Than freedom from the servile thought of measuring life by time And so, from this ethereal height, Athenian life I scan, And find no trace of origin revealed to god or man. The mythologic legend tells of Theseus, and his war, Who bound the Marathonian Bull and slew the Minotaur. But secrets of the ancient clays, which legend can ' t reveal, Come down as marbled messages, which Time cannot conceal. The " Temple of Olympian Zeus, " the " Wingless Victory, " Are symbols of Athenian povver and Earth ' s thnocracy. I cannot read of Pericles, or of his " Golden Age, " Of Sophocles or Solon, the poet and the sage, But 1 am drunk with dreaming of plots and foul intrigues. Of enemies of Justice, of " Brotherhoods " and " Leagues. " And then I see a picture, the sky its jeweled frame. With all the earth a stadium and life an endless game. Two thousand million people strive, each in his fated place — Or stand and watch the others strive — with wager on the race. And while I gaze the picture fades, save one unchanging scene, In which real faces now appear — not " shadows on the screen. " I hear the voices of mv friends who rise, " address the chair, " And with undaunted earnestness proceed to fill the air With true Lvcurgian eloquence, each striving in debate To solve the unsolved problems of the school and church and state. They ' re in life ' s game and mean to win, with high and noble aim; They " Strive to Conquer " every foe and win untarnished fame. May this Athenian brotherhood make all Athenians free To hold Athene ' s hand and dream of sisterhoods to be. Yea, more than this, compan- ' onships, across life ' s Marathons; Sophias, Ni-kes, Phidiases, to grace our Parthenons. So now your grateful Aeschylus descends to Attic plain, And, should the eagle ' s tortoise fall, has sung his last refrain. — L. G.

In the decade since that time it has been looked forward to by the students, Faculty, and townspeople as the one really great event of the College year. These contests are held in the Auditorium, which is always filled with an enthusiastic and appreciative audience. Each of the seven literary societies is represented by an orator chosen from among its own members. Each orator is preceded on the program by a musical offering from his society. Professor Kammeyer, who per- sonally supervises the training of the contestants, is chairman of the evening. Each society cheers its representative on to victory with original songs and yells. One of the best things that comes in the life of a college man. is to be chosen to represent his literary society in one of these con- tests. Each contestant is a winner whether or not he be awarded first place. In making the sacrifice that is required he wins for himself a place in the hearts and memories of his fellow students. To write and deliver an oration means that the contestant must be willing to sacrifice his time and energies for the honor of his society. He must spend hours of hard, patient and consistent toil, but he is more than repaid by the mental discipline and training which he re- ceives. He is better fitted to solve the problems of life and to win the victories which he must win if his life is to be a success. Four of these contests have been won by the Hamiltons; three by their sisters, the Ionfans; and one each by the Alpha Betas. Franklins, and Athenians. We present herewith the likeness of Lucius G. Folsom, winner of first place this year for the Athenians. ROYAL PURPLE rpi K S. A. C. — Fairmount Debate HE first intercollegiate debate in which K. S. A. C. ever took part occurred in the old chapel on the evening of April 14, 1910. The question for discussion was, ' " Resolved, That the United States Government should establish a permanent tariff commission. " P. C. Vilander, L. C. Christie, and Linnie Sand- born defended the affirmative; and R. T. McCluggage, 11. F. Mc- Kinley, and B. C. Ludlem of Fairmount College, Wichita, upheld the negative. The judges ■-elected for the occasion were Supt. M. E. Pearson and Rev. Edwin Locke, of Kansas City, Kansas, and Supt. W. S. Huesner, of Junction City. Their decision was unanimously in favor of the affirmative. Xeedless to say their verdict met with the vociferous approval of all present. Prof. J. E. Kammeyer presided. While this debate was going on in Manhattan, a similar one was taking place in Wichita between representatives of the same schools. Our team at Wichita consisted of W. D. Roth, W. S. Davison, and Florence Wyland. The same question was debated, only our team in this case took the negative side and — lost by a two-to-one vote of the judges, one of whom was a resident of Wichita and had been pressed into service at the last moment to fill a vacancy. This is not intended as an insinuation or complaint, but only to emphasize the fact that, counting the total votes of the judges for both debates, we secured four out of six. This is both gratifying and encouraging when it is remembered that this was our first venture. The history of this contest goes back to the Spring term of 1909 when Professor Kam- meyer received a proposition from Professor Pittenger. of Fairmount, that the two schools enter into an agreement to hold a series of three annual debates. After much correspondence and the organization of a debating council here, articles of agreement were finally drawn up and accepted by both colleges. In the Fall term of 1910 the literary societies (whose representa- tives compose the Council) began holding- a series of elimination de- bates among themselves in order to determine, regardless of society membership, who might be entitled to a place on the teams solely on his merits. The outcome was as indicated above. These preliminary debates awakened great interest, and gave opportunity to a score or more of student- to " try their hand " at de- bating. The study and training these students underwent was a re- sult but slightly secondary in importance to the victory of the teams finally chosen. The training necessary for becoming a good debater is a valuable one to any student: and it is to be hoped that this is but the beginning of great things for K. S. A. C. in this line.

Brown and Joseph Kirmeyer, Kappa Delta Pi men from Epsilon Chapter, Orchard Lake, Michigan, were students in the Kansas State Agricultural College. At this time there were no Greek letter fraternities in existence here. However, there was a club organized for the purpose of social entertainment. Brown and Kirmeyer, having experienced the benefits and pleasures to be derived from fraternity life and being well im- pressed with the chances of organizing a chapter of some g ' ood frater- nity here, decided to put forth their utmost efforts toward this end, with the result that upon petitioning " the Kappa Delta Pi Eraternilv a charter was granted and a chapter was duly established on the twen- tieth day of October, 1901. The roll of charter members is as follows : Edwin H. Brown. Joseph Kirmeyer, Edward Y. House and John R. Powers. Including graduate members, Iota Chapter has a roll of eighty- seven men. During its earlv existence here the fraternity was met with more or less disapproval — due more to the fact that the people in gen- eral and the students in particular did not understand the nature of such a college organization. The fraternity has always been a firm suporter of college athletics and worthy student enterprises, having had one captain of base-ball and two captains of track teams — three of the four " K " men being active this year. Realizing the importance and necessity of good scholarship, the fraternity has endeavored to maintain a high standard of scholarship.

Finally, after mam- discussions and much planning, twelve men met in secret session on the evening of October 14th, at 617 Leavenworth street, and when the town clock across the way had struck the midnight hour, the Tau I )mega Sigma fraternity had been founded. The twelve men who became the charter members were: R. D. Scott, ' 04; A. H. Johnson, ' 03; Geo. F. Bean, ' 02; R. B. Mullen, ' 02; W. D. Davis, ' 04 ; E. N. Rodell, ' 03; G. R. Shepherd, ' 02; H. A.

In 1908. the active and alumni members organized the Tau Omega Sigma Stock Company (Incorporated), and built the pres- ent chapter house at 821 Osage street, which is especially designed and fitted for its purpose. The fraternity gave an annual party the first four years of its existence; but, keeping in mind the future, these were abandoned and the money thus expended applied to furnishing a home. The Tau Omega Sigma has at all times had the loyal support of its alumni members and the resident members have always shown a marked interest in its up-building. The total membership has just passed the hundred mark and of those who have left the college halls and gone out into the world a trifle over one-half are graduates of old K. S. A. C. — a record which speaks for itself.

S. A. C, tbat survived the many difficulties attendant to such an enterprise. Early in the fall of 1904 there had been much talk among a certain crowd of girls of founding such a society, but the organization was not definitely effected until the evening of October 15th, of that year, when the following charter members : Clare Cave Wilson, Irene Tay- lor, ' 08. Catherine Hughes and Xell Hughes Rodell, ' 06, met at 925 Osage street. The fraternity was first known as the " Witches, " but in the summer of 1906 a state charter was granted us under the name of Lambda Lambda Theta. The purposes of our organization are primarily for the social betterment of our members, with a view to the development of the many accomplishments which they will need as women in real life, and for the attainment of high scholarship. A standard grade was estab- lished, which the girls are required to maintain, and this year our alumni have offered a loving cup to the girl making the highest aver- age grade for the year. Each year has been a stepping stone of progress with the Lambdas. From a small beginning we have grown in strength and numbers until at present we have a total of forty-five members. In the fall of 1909 we occupied our first chapter house at 215 South Fifth street, in which all the girls may enjoy the advantages of living under the same roof. Ten women of the Faculty and of Manhattan have consented to act as our patronesses. We hope for more from the future than from the past, both for our college and our fraternity. Fraternity, fraternity, that stands for all that ' s best, That means so much to each of us Who wears her golden crest. Our College life, with pleasure rife. Will soon be in the past ; To Lambda we ' ll e ' er be true And loval to the last.

May 200 ROYAL PURPLE 19 w Athletics O THOSE who have watched with interest the steady and rapid growth of K. S. A. C. during the past decade, the re- markahle, we may say phenomenal, change in the status of athletics at the College, is a most striking example of what may be done when one little Irishman, bubbling over with energy and college spirit, comes into a school in which Athletics are " going down for the third time, " and injects a little of his overflowing " pep " into every one with whom he comes in contact. As a result of the escape and rapid spread of this College Spirit germ, athletics at K. S. A. C. received a boost which landed us in the top row and bids fair to lift us still higher, to a pedestal above the top row, where there is room only for the " National College Champs. " To argue in favor of college athletics in this day and age is super- fluous. A school without its athletic teams and games is not only con- sidered a dead one, but is really neglecting an important phase of the development of men and women. It is a well established fact that physical training is a valuable, if not necessary, part of the education of the youth. Athletics at K. S. A. C. are managed by the Athletic Associa- tion, the membership of which is made up of members of the Faculty, instructors, students and graduates. The object of the Association, as stated in its constitution, is " To encourage and promote the physical, educational and hygienic training of students of the Kansas State Agricultural College, and to foster and supervise athletic games and contests in connection with said institution. " The official monogram of the Association is a purple " K, " the particular form of sport in which it is won being designated as fol- lows : Foot-ball, block letter ; Base-ball, old English letter ; Basket- ball, plain letter " K " within a diamond-shaped parallelogram ; Track, plain letter " K " within a purple circle: Tennis, plain letter " K " within a tennis racket of purple and white. Each additional year that an athlete earns a monogram, he is awarded a white star to be placed on his " K. " OOT-BALL at K. S. A. C. is on the rise. That ' s what the " bugs " say and as a rule there is no one better versed on his subject than the foot-ball " bug. " It surely is gratifying to those, who have for the past few years watched the prog- ress (and sometimes the absence of progress) of foot-ball, to stop a moment and take a backward look at the long, steep and tiresome climb which K. S. A. C. has had to make in order to get the place she now occupies. It gives one the feeling that something has been accomplished, something done to earn the high standing our College now has in the foot-ball world. Those who have been in College only for the last three or four years, however, cannot fully appreciate the phenomenal change which has taken place in foot-ball at K. S. A. C, as those who have kept in touch with the College since the advent of one. M. F. Ahearn. Mike has coached our foot-ball and basket-ball teams for five years and to say that he has been a success is putting it mildly. In fact, he has so completelv won the hearts of all K. S. A. C. students that there is a movement now on foot to run him for Governor against Stuhbs. One thing is certain. Mike will receive the loyal support of every student of the College, no matter what his politics may be. 202 ROYAL PURPLE 1910 In the olden days K. S. A. C. was in the foot-hall circles what Washburn is getting to be, viz.: " The Easy Thing. ' Not so in recent years. The following figures compiled by E. N.

The prolonged and dismal wail that arose from the camp of K. S. A. C. echoed and reverberated between Blue- mont and Prospect and back again against the White City on the Hill until Mike, after having been visited by the ' 09 team in a body and being argued down on all points, finally was compelled to give in and promise to coach another year with the assurance that he would not be prevailed upon again next Fall to coach in 1911. The Fall of 1909 saw glorious achievements on the gridiron for K. S. A. C. After only one week of preparation, the first game of the season was played with Salina Wesleyans on October 2d: During the game 17 Aggies were tried out and demonstrated their abilitv to ROYAL PURPLE toio 203 play foot-ball by running up a score of 35 to 0, permitting the Wesley- ans to make " first clown " but twice. Those who saw this game be- gan to feel optimistic about the game with Missouri University, which was to be played at Columbia on October 9th. With another week ' s hard training the team was sure to make Missouri play ball. Well, they did play ball and, according to the newspaper reports, Mis- souri got the worst of it all the way through, except the score, which stood 3 to 0, with the 3 on the Missouri side of the fence. A Kansas City paper said of this game: " Dopesters who saw the same sav that the Aggies outplayed Missouri nearly all the time, but suffered severe penalties at the most inopportune times. " Those who saw the game said that Missouri wo uld beat K. U. on Thanksgiving day, which prophesy came true. The most exciting and hardest fought game of the season was played on the home grounds with K. U. on October 16th. Back and forth across the gridiron before an excited and excruciatingly anxious crowd of three thousand people, the two teams pushed and pulled, both sides fighting for every inch and straining every nerve and muscle to advance the pigskin. The rooting was terrific. K. U. had a large representation present, but only during an occasional lull in the din could their old " Rock Chalk " be heard. The tremendous root- ing of the Aggies simply drowned them out. The Kansas City Star sport writer, who occupied the press bench, said it was the most loyal support he had ever seen given a team. During the first half the Aggies outplayed their opponents at nearly every point, but luck was with the Jayhawkers and by an on- side kick the ball was kicked over the goal line and Quarterback John- son, who kicked the ball, fell on it, scoring a touch-down, which was their only score. During the second half Quarterback Bates kicked a field goal, the only score for the College. K. U. was on the de- fensive nearly all the time, carrying the ball only 123 yards to the Aggies ' 336. In its report of the game, the Kansas City Star said: " The best team lost. " The next game was with the Southwestern University, October 23d. The visitors soon showed that they belonged in another class and our bovs decided that the only way the game could be made in- 204 ROYAL PURPLE ion teresting was to show the crowd what an assortment of plays they could pull off. The forward pass was worked to perfection and it is quite probable that the Southwestern team went home with several new pointers on the game. Score, 60 to 0. On October 30th the team played the State Normal at Emporia. 44 to was the message which came over the wire from the teachers ' town and another victory was safely bagged. Creighton University was the next victim and although they played hard and fought to the last, they were compelled to bite the dust, while the scorer chalked up 58 to 3. Their one score came from a drop kick as the result of a fumble. The Oklahoma Aggies wandered into cam]) about November 13th and with them came a precipitation of about five inches (more or less) of moisture. But it takes more than that to prevent two Aggie teams from playing foot-ball, so about 3 :30 o ' clock, in a pouring rain and a sea of mud and water, before a crowd of 200 faithful bugs, the game started. The wet and shivering rooters soon forgot their dis- comfort and were kept in a continuous uproar at the ludicrous per- formances of the players in their attempts to navigate in six inches of mud and water. Nobodv got hurt, as the ground was quite yield- ing — one was assured of always having a soft place to light. It was feared that casualties from drowning would be reported, but for- tunately all the players were good swimmers and although a few had to be pried from off the mud at times, there were no serious injuries. Neither side scored until the second half, when Bates booted the ball ( which, with the real estate attached, weighed somewhere between five and thirty pounds) over the goal wlrle standing in mud ankle deep. Later Spear swam 50 yards to a touchdown. The final score was 9 to 0. Fairmount College thus far has the honor ( ?) of being beaten the worst of any team ever played by the Aggies. On November the 20th our team journeyed to Wichita and administered an unmerciful drubbing to the above mentioned team to the tune of 71 to 0. The boys said the whole team was nearly fagged out from running back and forth across the gridiron, making touchdowns. ROYAL PURPLE ioio 205 The last game of the season was played at Washburn on Thanks- giving day. The Washburn game has always been looked forward to as one of the hardest games on the schedule and, in fact, they have always had a fairly strong team, but the thing most feared by the Aggies and which has been the cause of most of the Washburn vic- tories over them is the remarkable luck with which the Congrega- tionalists are almost invariably blest. So extraordinarily pronounced has been this favoring of the " gods " that it has long been known as the " Washburn Hoodoo. " It has on many occasions enabled Wash- burn to win foot-ball, basket-ball and base-ball games with teams ac- tually inferior to our teams, at the same time being outplayed by our teams. But in 1908 the " hoodoo " was broken and in 1909 it failed to put in any appearance whatever and we ran over Washburn so completely that they were only able to make first down but once and were completely outclassed, as the score of 40 to indicates. The Washburn Review said: " The farmers ran their plays be- hind a weight of interference and with a speed that has not been equalled by any team on the home gridiron this season.

C. has an exceptionally good basket-ball team. Under Mike ' s splendid tutoring the team developed a system and speed that was at times really marvelous. Those who watched the team during the coaching and preparation for the opening of the schedule predicted a fast team, and the exhibition of basket-ball playing which our boys put on from the first blow of the whistle to the last was indeed a revelation to everyone. The initial game of the season was played January 6th with Nebraska University. The whirlwind start made by the Aggies com- pletely bewildered the visitors and they immediately took the sky- ward trip. They came down later on but not until the Aggies had a good lead and when the game ended the score looked like 27 to 15 with N. U. on the tail end. January 11th Baker University came up to wallop the " Farmers " but they used the passive form of the verb by mistake and " were walloped. " The story was the same as with N. U. They couldn ' t get their bearings until our fellows had a lead of 20 to 3 and then it was too late to commence so they just let it stay at 3 while the Aggies ran up to 61. 210 ROYAL PURPLE 19 10 The fiercest game of the season was played with K. C. A. C. on the home court January 18th. K. C. took the lead and were counting 1 1 to 2 before our team could get their machinery into working order. Later the Aggies spurted and evened up the score and throughout the game it varied only about three points. The score at the end of the first half was 24 to 23 in favor of K. C. Our team started strong in the second half and had a lead of four points in about seven minutes. With three minutes left to play and the score 41 to 41 the game was forfeited to K. C. by a questionable decision of the referee in regard to the conduct of one of the players. The striking of a referee by a player is not sanctioned or excused by any true sports- man but at the same time a referee should endeavor to be fair enough in his decisions so that a player has no reason to feel that he is being wilfully wronged. The score of a forfeited game is 2 to 0, which was the official score of this game. McPherson College on their way to play a Nebraska College team were hung up in Manhattan on January 19th so the officials got together and as a result a game was announced for that night. The game was slow on both sides, our team not showing up in the usual form. The score was 39 to 21 in favor of the Aggies. On January 25th the " terrible Swedes " came down from Bethany and put up a rather slow game, getting the shriveled end of a 50 to 39 score. Harry Baird took Blair ' s place at guard in this game on account of Blair ' s crippled knee. The team then took a little jaunt out of town and played K. U. and Baker. At both of these places they had larger courts than our boys were accustomed to and consequently both games were lost. To play the large courts requires a little more endurance and must be acquired by practice on the large court. The Baker game resulted in a tie, so five more minutes were allowed to play off the tie and Baker secured three more points than the Aggies in those five minutes, making the score 30 to 27 in favor of Baker. The score at K. U. w as 44 to 19. On February 12th when everyone was feeling good on account of having survived another mid-term, one Washburn College sent a dele- gation down to show us how the game of basket-ball should be played. ! ()) ' . II. PURPLE wio 211 Result: 100 points for K. S. A. C, 5 points for Washburn. " Nuf sed. " A two days sojourn into Nebraska resulted in two more victories being bagged for the Aggies. Nebraska University was the first victim and bit the dust in a 30 to 17 game. The Nebraska State Journal said of the game: " Nebraska ' s work in both halves showed a lack of energy which compared poorly with the Aggies ' rapid fire work. " The Nebraska Wesleyans fell before the mighty " farmers " the next night. They had a good team, however, and put up a fast, hard game, the two teams being about evenly matched. " Whipple was put in as forward in this game and put up a good exhibition of basket- ball. The final score stood 28 to 24. On February 26th the Salina " Wesleyans sent a quintette down to clean up the " Farmers. " The game was fast and snappy, but the Methodists were outclassed, as the score of 75 to 31 indicates. On March 4th and 5th we were served with more " Weslevans, " these of the Nebraska variety. They were fast and rough and showed our boys a merry time, but had to take a back seat in both perform- ances, the first one resulting in a score of 46 to 27 and the last one 54 to 14.

ASE-BALL, although not so exciting as foot-ball, neverthe- less is the real National game and is enjoyed by more people and is the object of less criticism as a game to be partici- pated in by college students. K. S. A. C. has had for the last five or six years a good standing in Intercollegiate base-ball circles. Mike is just as much a success at coaching base-ball as at foot-ball, consequently the only question that has presented itself to the fans each year is, " What kind of material will Mike have to work on this Spring? " for they are absolutelv con- fident that the coach will get out of every player all there is in him. At the first practice there were nine pitchers out and all the way from two to a half dozen candidates for every position on the team. The season was uncorked on April 2d with Nebraska Weslevans as the objective. Neither side showed up as anything classy, but the fans could see the making of a ball team in the Aggie bunch with a little more " Miking. " The score was 6 to 2 and the fans went home from the first game with a feeling of contentment. On April 4th Sol Cunningham, ' 08, brought in a team from Hays, representing the Western Branch of the State Normal, and, 214 ROYAL PURPLE roio although Sol ' s team put up a fairly good brand of base-ball, they couldn ' t keep pace with the Aggies and picked only two runs, while our boys gathered in seven. The " Cornhuskers " swooped down upon us from Nebraska April 13th with the intention of trimming the Sunflower farmers, but something was wrong somewhere, for when they settled up things at the end of the ninth N. U. was considerably in the hole, the score being 7 to 2. They decided that the 13th was an unlucky day for them and that it was on the 14th that they were to " lick " the Farm- ers, but things didn ' t pan out right on the 14th, either, so when they gazed on the 11 to 3 score they gave it up with a sigh and " vamosed. " An unknown quantity from Missouri drifted into camp about April 16th and asked to be showed, which the Aggies kindly pro- ceeded to do to the tune of 10 to 1. It was a cold, raw day and it is safe to say that no one enjoyed the game, not even the Missourians. The Manhattan delegation of the C. K. League asked for a game with the Farmers, and on April 18th the boys kindly gave them a few pointers on the National Sport, which seemed to be thoroughly appreciated (by the Aggie rooters). The game, however, was far from errorless on both sides and the Leaguers went down to the tune of 7 to 5. On April 23d, with the wind traveling somewhere between 50 and 100 miles per, the Kansas Wesleyan team groped their way through a cloud of dust to Athletic park and generously divided up the product of nine innings with our team, retaining two scores to show that they had tried, while the Aggies pocketed the seven with- out a complaint. Ottawa University came along on April 27th with the best team which had thus far faced the grand stand. It was the best day and best game so far this season, ending in a victory of 4 to 1 for the Aggies. The real game, however, came on April 29th when the Farmers crossed bats with the K. S. N. team. This bunch came with a repu- tation of a fast and classy aggregation and left with the same, but not with the victorv, although it looked dubious at times and fourteen ROYAL PURPLE j jj 215 innings were played before the Farmers could run in a score and break the 1 to 1 tie. This made the ninth consecutive victory for the Aggies and not a defeat to mar the record. The following is the schedule for the season: K. S. A. C 6 Nebraska Wesleyans 2 K. S. A. C 7 Hays Normal K.

Here the student has a better opportunity for individual development and with less danger to life and limb than in base-ball, basket-ball or foot-ball. Yet the aspirants are proportionately fewer and the attendance smaller than at any of the other three sports. There are several theories as to why this i-. Some think that the fact that in track athletics the element of chance is almost entirely eliminated is partially responsible for the lack of enthusiasm and light patronage. Yhatever the reason it remains true that track athletics do not receive the support of the student body that they deserve. It is safe to say, however, that track athletics will continue to grow more popular as their advantages are demonstrated. K. S. A. C. has been doing things in track athletics for the last three years. Assistant J. B. Whelan of the Chemistry Depart- ment has proven himself to be a coach of no mean ability, and by his persevering and faithful training the track branch of athletics has advanced with remarkable strides. Last vear we met Washburn on May 2d in a dual meet and made off with the prize by Sj4 points. 218 ROYAL PURPLE iqio In this meet Christian won the 100, 220 and 440 yard dashes. Phenix won the 1-mile, McNall the 2-mile and Ross the pole vault. Heslip took the shot put and Foster the 220 hurdles. Pvles took the broad jump and tied with his colleague, Neiman, for first in the high jump. Score, Washburn 60; K. S. A. C. 68V2. We also met Baker in a dual meet and came out three points to the good. Christian made off with the 100 and 200-yard dashes again in this meet and Phenix also with the mile run. Detweiler won the y 2 mile, Pyles the high jump and broad jump. Heslip took first in both the hammer throw and shot put and Ross came out on top in the pole vault. Score, K. S. A. C. 67; Baker 64. In the meet with K. I ' , we did not fare quite so well, but did some good work. Christian taking the 100-yard in 10 1-5 seconds, leaving the " never defeated " Haddock in the lurch. Austin broke the State record by running the mile in 4:43. Christian also won the 440-yard, McNall the 2-mile and Ross the pole vault. Score, K. U. Siy 2 ; K. S. A. C. 3SV 2 . On May 18th they did big things at the State meet, where they met Baker, Washburn, K. S. X., College of Emporia, Cooper and Fairmount. The Aggies showed them a merry time and when the dust had cleared away K. S. A. C. had 55 points while the nearest competitor was Baker with 36C points. In this meet our men broke five State records. Christian won the 100 and 440-yard dashes making the State record 52 3-5 in the latter. Detweiler holds the State record in the l mile made that day in 2:07 1-5. Austin seemed to have no regard whatever for previous records, smashing the Yi mile by a record of 4:44 and the 2-mile in 10:24 4-5 and win- ning the title " The Human Jackrabbit. " Bentley also got in on the record breaking by jumping 5 feet f Y inches high. Seng took first in the hammer throw. The time of going to press forbids giving a detailed account of the meets to be held this Spring. In the 2-mile cross country run for the Hamilton medal, Loren Fowler was the winner of the medal although Austin won the race. Austin, however, was debarred from competing for the prize on ac- count of having won it two years ago. Fowler being second man was the official winner. Later in the term the inter-class meet will take place. The win- ner of this meet will receive the W. S. Elliot trophy which is to be- come the propertv of the class winning it three times. Snapshots of Winners ROYAL PURPLE iom 221 Tennis Tl ' ' () tne P re sent lime tennis has not played a very im- portant part in our athletics. We have had two matches with small colleges in the last two years, and no one knew they were coming, consequently both were played without rooters and the participants themselves hardly knew an intercollegiate match was going on. But the future is going to be different. With the new awakening in athletics due to our building the new Gym- nasium and the athletic fields, tennis is fast becoming what it already is in other colleges; the sport in which the student body can par- ticipate. Last Spring our tennis manager got a meet with Midland Col- lege of Atchison, and although no practicing was done for the game, the manager picked a partner for the evening match and won both the doubles and singles in straight sets. In all probability our past dullness in this sport has been due to the choice of managers. Up to this year the manager has done nothing to forward tennis beyond telling the classes to pick teams and hold an inter-class tournament, which the manager very rarely at- tended and since there was so very little to be gained by working for a proficiency in the game which would make matches with other Colleges interesting enough to draw crowds, that would pay the expenses of the contesting teams, very little practicing was done and as a consequence no good players have developed. Conditions have changed this vear and owing to some good work on the manager ' s part, the two courts south of the D. S. have been built, a good individual singles tournament was pulled off and five matches have been scheduled, three at home : Nebraska, Baker and Kansas Wesleyans, while a return match will be played with Baker and a single and double team will be entered in the inter- collegiate meet at Emporia. These will undoubtedly raise an interest among the students and with good live managers we expect to hear from K. S. A. C. in tennis circles as her other athletic teams are making the big noise which is heard around the world. ROYAL PURPLE wio 223 First Annual Athletic Banquet ACH succeeding year brings to any college new customs and each year sees new precedents established and K. S. A. C. is no exception to this time honored rule. The College year just waning has been one of new beginnings at our College, especially in athletics. New fields of con- quest have been invaded and new methods in the conduct o the sports emphasized here have been inaugurated. The recent advance of the athletic prestige of the College was not characterized by any advance in the method of commemorating or celebrating the victories won nor was sufficient attention given re the reward of the men who annually sacrifice their time and ability to the athletics of K. S. A. C. True, monograms were granted; hut it was usually done by someone making a motion at an Athletic As- sociation meeting, which passed without the members thinking- or realizing the significance of their action. A committee of one was appointed to secure the monograms and after they had arrived the athletes were notified that they could get their reward by stopping at some clothing store. On that Saturday night, January 25, 1910. two hundred forty people, including Faculty members, athletes, townspeople and students, marched into the Women ' s Gymnasium to the music furnished by the College orchestra and sat down at four long tables, canopied by a blaze of royal purple, and laden with the festive offering that will long be remembered by those who were present. Did a chef plan and serve the feast ? No. Six Domestic Science girls, members of the Rooters ' Club for Girls, figured the banquet within the limit that the boys of the committee had received from the ticket sale. Twenty high-school girls acted in the capacity of waitresses and served the feast according to the following menu : Fruit Cocktail Wafers Roast Chicken Dressing Gravy Mashed Potatoes Escalloped Oysters Cranberry Marmalade Bean Salad Sandwiches Coffee English Pudding " Fruit Sauce 224 ROYAL PURPLE 1910 The speeches of the evening and the presentation of monograms next occupied the time and attention of the merry banqueters. Mike Ahearn, of popular fame, was toastmaster, and conducted the oratory in his usual cheery and genial manner. The principal speaker of the evening was President Waters, who commended the athletic spirit of the school and marvelled at the show- ing made with the meager equipment and funds available at K. S. A. C. The other speakers of the evening were. Dean E. B. McCormick, C. M. Breese, R. J. Barnett, E. N. Rodell, A. B. Nystrom. L. C. Aicher, J. B. Gingery, G. C. Croyle and Carrie Gates. Miss Gates was the representative of the Girls ' Rooters Club and surprised the crowd as well as the athletes by announcing the fact that the girls were having a set of purple blankets, adorned with a large white K, made for the use of the foot-ball teams in the future. The foot-ball monograms were presented by A. T. Ostlund to the following men: Captain Gingerv, Harvev Roots, Captain-elect Croyle, A. W. S eng, Harry Bates, Charles Zoller, C. C. Carpenter, Martin Hinrichs, A. L. Hammond, George Elliott, R. T. Towler, Clarence Haywood, E. J. Edwards, Whit Speer, Frank Parks and Leo Price. Coach J. B. Whelan presented track monograms to the following athletes: R. V. Christian, V. V. Detwiler, W. D. Austin. A. W. Seng, Worth Ross, O. D. Pvles, Arthur Bentlev, Henrv Phenix, Pete McNall, T. M. Heslip. A. W. Seng presented the following basket-ball players with the official insignia of the Association: C. C. Carpenter (Capt.), Ed Larson, Pete McNall and O. L. Talbot. The merry banqueters had spent one of the most enjoyable oc- casions ever offered at the College and the sentiment that the affair should be made annual received its greatest impetus after the par- ticipants in this acknowledgment of the work of the athletes had been there and realized that K. S. A. C. can and must foster the athletic in this manner each year. And there are hundreds of those who could not attend who are anxious to see the banquets each year. ROYAL PURPLE 1910 225 Rooters ' Clubs VE years ago a few of the leading athletic enthusiasts of the College organized a Boys ' Rooters ' Club. The object of the club is to entertain visiting teams, and to originate new and novel demonstrations given at the games to en- courage and cheer the teams on to victory, later the Chris ' Rooters ' Club was organized to help in the work and has proven a very effi- cient organization. The Clubs always provide and make all necessary arrangements for special trains for excursions each year to witness the principal out nf town games. The club meets all its expenses by a small member- ship fee and an occasional assessment on the members. The efficiency of the Clubs may be judged from the following clipping taken from the Kansas City Star after the K. U. game last fall : " It is too bad that the Missouri team did not play at Manhattan, Kan. Had the Tigers met the Kansas ' Aggies ' on the ' Aggies ' grid- iron the Missourians would have witnessed an example of the college spirit which Roper is trying to introduce at the Missouri school. Out at Manhattan they have the ' spirit ' right, in big quantises and of the blue ribbon quality. The writer was in Manhattan Saturday for the K. U. - ' Aggies ' game, and he saw more spirit there that day than he had ever seen before. At 11 o ' clock in the morning a big mass meet- ing was held in the College Aucktorium. Some eighteen hundred students were there and listened to short talks from coach ' Mike ' Ahearn and his assistants. Yells and songs were practiced. For an hour the students chopped things up. That mass meeting was just a starter. Half an hour before the game started the ' Girls Rooter Club ' appeared on the field. Headed by the student band, two hundred girls, each one dressed in white, hatless, marched slowly around the out- side of the gridiron. The leader of the club carried a large K. S. A. C. banner and led a huge black dog blanketed in the colors of the Manhattan school. Each girl waved a purple and white pennant above her head. It was an inspiring scene and the crowd stood with hats off and cheered as the girls passed down either side of the grid- 226 ROYAL PURPLE wio iron. The girls sat in a section of seats in the center of the ' Aggie ' side of the gridiron, and each side of them the hoys of the school were hanked. And the volume of noise those Manhattan students did turn loose! It was great. " During the intermission between the halves five hundred hoys marched on to the field of play and formed a giant ' K. ' Each boy had a megaphone and that big ' ' K ' made as much noise as a dozen calliopes would turn adrift. The referee sounded his whistle for the second half and the ' K ' farmers turned and beat a hasty retreat for their bleachers. And there on the ground where they had stood was seen a giant ' K ' done in confetti. The wind soon picked up the colored bits of paper and carried them whirlwinding down the gridiron. The ' Aggie team went down to defeat, but the defeat was far from in- glorious, and the ' Aggie ' rooters were storming for their heroes as gaily and as noisily when the game broke up as when the battle started. Missouri could learn a lot about college spirit from those Manhattan students. " Girl Rooters Company 1) Company E Company 1! Company F I w - - " S I ,1 i v. -it lii. h ' O ) ' . .

Nevertheless, it is being taught here every day of the College year, and without extra cost to the student, a fact that gives many a deserving member of tin ' s College a chance to learn something along this line while following his other studies. This is, of course, an Agricultural College, hut music should nil a place in the life of each student, whether he is a farmer or an engineer, a veterinarian or a horticulturist, to say nothing of the place it should occupy in the girls ' lives. It aids in making many a home happier, and that is one of the objects of this school. It is an opportunity of which by no means a small number avail themselves. Prof. Olof Valley stands at the head of this de- partment. Numerous orgairzations are found here. The largest one of these is the Choral Union, with an average enrollment of one hun- dred voices. This body gives an annual concert, having given one for the last five years. This year the concert is to he given at com- mencement time, as it is thought that in this way an attendance even larger than before will be secured. Choruses from some of the Grand Operas and the Oratorio, " The Holy City, " will be given. All this takes much time, but considerable benefit may be derived from it for those working on it and much pleasure for the listeners. The Orchestra comes next in number, with an average number of forty people. Assistant Harry Brown deserves much praise and gratitude here for the hard work and time he has put in with the ( )rchestra. It is no small task to take so many people, knowing more or less about music, who have never played together before and bring out of such a chaos a resulting body as he does. Their efforts are appreciated by all attending chapel and by others also when an opportunity is given them of hearing the Orchestra. The Chapel Chorus numbers from forty to fifty people and is heard on occasions their name would indicate numerous times dur- ing- the vear. The Glee Club is another organization, with an en- ROY. II. PURPLE iqio 237 rollment of from fourteen to eighteen, which adds pleasure to chapel when they appear there, as they do elsewhere. The only feature which, some would like to see eliminated is their reluctance to re- spond with an encore to the ardent clapping of the assembly. The hand, now known as the Military Band, is limited to a membership of thirty-six by Government regulation. The band is heard on Dress Parade days, but not very much elsewhere now. The student bod)- would be glad to hear it more often, but there seems to be little opportunity for so doing. The teaching- force in this department numbers ten at present, teaching- voice work, piano, violin, brass, and wood-wind. This number is being yearly added to as the students studying- music increase in number. It is a branch growing in force and popularity, and to those who cannot take advantage of this splendid opportunity much pleasure is given by listening to the resulting acquirements of others. Recitals by students are given several times during the year, no charge being made for admission. This gives many a chance to hear both instrumental and vocal music, as the programs are com- posed of both. The auditorium is always well filled on the night of such occasions, and the people go away with the feeling that the instructors and pupils are well worth while. 238 ROYAL PURPLE 1910 The College Orchestra Instrumentation First Violins L.

At that time, membership in this new organization was limited to Senior and Junior Society members, with no reference to their grade of College work. Three plays have, of course, been given since the club came into existence, " The Taming of the Shrew " in 1908 and the " Lady of Lyons " in 1909. This year " Half-back Sandy, " a college play, was given and proved verv successful. The club, attempting to set a good example and to aid in a just cause, donated all the proceeds, after paying expenses, to the Athletrc Association for the new fie ld. The club has formerly labored under the disadvantage of lack of interest in its meetings, as attendance was not compulsory, but the constitution was revised this year and now better results along this line are looked for. Three regular programs are to be given each term Now upper classmen, with an average of G in their College work, but not necessarily a societv member, are eligible for membership in the club. The club deserves good, earnest support from its members, and the decided success of this year ' s play will probably be another factor in attaining this end.

The build- ing, with its attractive rooms and gymnasium, is playing an increasingly important part in the student life, and the College basket-ball games have been played on the floor of the Y.

The Association lias worked for the good of the students In- distributing 1,000 hand-books, meeting the new students at the trains at the beginning of the Fall and Winter terms, and by con- ducting an Employment Bureau winch has handled about $5,000 worth of work during the year. It has provided for the social life by stags and socials. For the religious instruction of the students it has conducted Bible Study classes in which 300 have been enrolled; it has held religious meetings every Thursday evening and special meetings have been held by Dr. Hall, of Chicago, and " Dad " Elliott. The coming- year is full of promise for increased activity and use- fulness. The extension work and work for the boys will be developed. College students will be enlisted to conduct gospel teams in high school towns during vacations and week ends. Thev will also or- ganize and conduct Sunday Schools in country districts where no work is now carried on. Field meets and Summer camps are being arranged for the town boys under the supervision of the College men. The Social committees are holding a May Festival for the first time this year. The two Associations will undertake the support of former Secretary McLean in his foreign missionary work in Mexico during the coming year. A physical director will be emploved on full time and a banner delegation is expected to be sent by a special car to Cascade this June. Through all its activities the Association is build- ing 1 Christian character. 250 ROYAL Pl ' KPLE iqio Y. W. C. A. HE Young Women ' s Christian Association was organized at the Kansas State Agricultural College in 1886. This Association stands for service and Christian fellowship among the girls. At the beginning of the school year, the new students were met at the train and were helped to find rooming - and hoarding places. At the opening social, the new girls were made to feel that the Asso- ciation offered them true fellowship. Bible and Mission Study Classes were organized and proved a great help to the girls. The weekly Devotional Meetings were held on Thursday evening at the United Presbyterian Church. Some of the speakers for the year were Mr. E. G. Colton, Dr. W. S. Hall, " Dad " Elliot, and Miss Wilbour, a National Secretary of the Y. W. C. A. The membership for the year was raised to 4?0. The Calrnet has worked faithfully, but the success of the year has not been due entirely to their efforts, for every member has had a vital interest in the Association.

Strong Subscription Manager Floyd Nichols,, Walter Osborn, Roy Davis, Dwight Miller, Reporters VERY educational institution aboYe the rank of a high school has its medium of publicity. In some cases the journalistic duties are assumed by the Faculty to the al- most utter exclusion of student endeavor, while in other institutions the reverse may be true. Some institutions are blessed with Faculty, student and alumni publications, the number, size and quality varying with the support. The K. S. A. C. Faculty publishes the Industrialist — a publi- cation little more than a weekly pamphlet of excerpts from the student publication, Manhattan dailies and papers prepared by Faculty members. The Alumnus occupies a field distinctly its own, as indicated by the name. The student publication. The Students ' Herald, is the newspaper of the College and makes its appearance semi-weekly. Since its birth The Herald has appeared in different forms and frequency. It began its career as a four-column, four-page sheet. 254 ROYAL PURPLE igio published weekly, later changing to a magazine form. But not until the Summer of 1907, when it returned to the four-column form, did it appear as a semi-weekly. The days of publication are Wednesdays and Saturdays and it never appears with less than twenty-four columns. The editorial policy for the past few years has remained un- changed. It is as conservative as any uncensored student publication that can be found. It always stands for truth, justice and equality. It is essentially a student publication and does not cater to news con- cerning members of the alumni. Few such readers of more than three years ' standing will be found on its list. On account of ex- cluding the bulk of alumni news it has been criticised, but this was done at the request of the then editor of the Alumnus in order to remove any cause of failure from the path of that publication. Financially, The Herald is a failure. It prints more live news at a greater expense than any average college publication. Its ad- vertising does not yield sufficient profit to pay the wages of the staff members, and that number is a minimum. It boosts everv phase of student endeavor without price and without receiving sufficient com- pensation to purchase the pencils used in the compilation of its news matter. To be a staff member is an empty honor and a sacrifice. The duties of the chief members are arduous to such a degree that the editors lose their standing with the Faculty as students, and with the students as reliable co-workers in the various student en- terprises. The only remuneration comes from the appreciation ex- pressed in the columns of other publications and the satisfaction of producing a paper which is the peer of any. The college newspaper man has the assurance to believe that it requires no highly educated moral sense or superior acumen to perceive the shortcomings of college journalism. He is certainly disposed to believe that no layman can be more acutely sensible of these shortcomings than himself. At the same time it may occur to him that, if the excellent but exacting men and women who inveigh against the sins of his craft knew more of its difficulties and tribula- tions, thev might be more intelligent and less caustic in their criticism. ROYAL PURPLE igio 255 Agricultural Association Motto More Farmers, Better Farming N THE year of 1902 the Agricultural students, feeling in need of a society for the advancement of Agricultural interest, organized the Agricultural Association. The work in the past has been commendable. The programs of the meetings being composed of papers and discus- sions on Agricultural subjects by the members and talks by pro- fessors on problems of Agricultural interest. Grain and stock judg- ing contests have been conducted, which have been of interest to the students. Most of the members of the stock and grain judging teams have been members of the Association. The Association was an aid in securing the changing of the courses and as a result we now have five distinct Agricultural courses: Animal Husbandry, Agronomy, Horticulture, Dairv, and Poultry. The Association has held its meetings on Saturday afternoon in the Agricultural Hall, but lack of a suitable meeting place, after- noon classes, and the fact that many Association members are members of literary societies has interfered with the Association ' s meetings. Such circumstances and loss of interest by the Agricult- ural Professors in this work has naturally caused a decline. The " Senior Ags. " of 1910, realizing- the necessitv of an As- sociation for the advancement of Agricultural interests, are at- tempting to put the Association upon a good working basis by se- curing for members representative Agricultural students of the under classes. They are also endeavoring to secure a permanent hall in which to hold their meetings and a reading room, which may be supplied with the latest current literature upon Agriculture. The leaders in the Association in the past are now the fore- most men in Agriculture. The future of the Association depends upon the support of such men, as well as by the student body and professors. ■J! fe $ IMfci$$f Veterinary Medical Association ELTHOUGH the Veterinary Medical Association is the youngest scientific student organization at K. S. A. C, we believe it is one of the most progressive. It does not seek a large membership, admitting only those students who desire a more extensive education than that offered by other sources. The Association holds weekly sessions in the Veterinary Hall, a room being especially designated for that purpose. In these meet- ings various subjects, relating to the veterinary profession are dis- cussed. Every member is required to prepare at least two papers each term, the subjects being assigned to him by the program com- mittee. It is also customary to call upon all members of the Veteri- nary Faculty, during each term, to deliver papers or lectures on timely subjects or current events, along " the line of scientific research. Not only does each member receive practical instruction in veterinary science, but he also receives valuable parliamentary prac- tice, thus preparing him for leading citizenship :n the community in which he may locate. In order to promote greater interest, and more efficient work, to impress the importance of the work done upon its members and to encourage prompt and regular attendance, the Association voted in 1908 to award sheep-skin diplomas to members who complete the required amount of work and fulfill other obligations. This diploma, a reprint of which may he seen on the following page, is the only diploma issued by any association connected with this college. ' I r i js Si a 1 5 1 s £ 260 ROYAL PURPLE igio Alumni Association NOTHER year has added to the history of our Alma Mater and another class is leaving her enchanted realm to explore the country which lies beyond her gates — a new world of work and stern reality. To the Class of 1910, the Alumni Association gives greeting and welcome. It is our wish that the dreams and hopes which have come to you in the happy year of prep- aration, just past, shall, in this commencement of your life in the world of men, prove an inspiration that shall grow stronger and better with each passing year. Most of us have had dreams — prob- ably few of us have realized them. The character of our education at the Kansas State Agricultural College has been to prove that: " It is not gold, nor rank, nor state; But ' get up and get, ' that makes men great. " Vet the very ability to dream dreams has sweetened our toil and made our " getting " less arduous. That you may know just who von are as a member of the Alumni Association, a few words as to the history of that body, will be in order: In 1870, is the first recorded action of the Alumni. At this time they presented a gift to ex-President Joseph Dennison and gave a program in the Presbyterian church which was then used as an audience room for all large gatherings of the College people. It was left to the Class of 1879 to organize an Alumni Association, the year after their graduation. They planned for a reun ' on and banquet for commencement, 1881. An Alumni address was also included in the plans, but the speaker, Y. D., ' 74, was ill and unable to come. Re- unions were held after that for three succeeding years, the accom- panying expenses for which were met by voluntary contributions and th e treasurer of the Association was in each case afforded the privi- lege of making up a deficit, himself. Someone in writing up this period has said: " By 1884 the treasurership had apparently been the rounds of those willing to hold the sack, and it was voted to have the stated reunions with banquets triennially, the exercises of intervening years in addition to a business meeting, being left to the judgment of ROYAL PURPLE iqio 261 the executive committee. " That plan ha- been followed ever since. The object nf the Alumni Association, as expressed in the con- stitution, is " The Promotion of the interests of the College and of acquaintance among its graduates. " As an Association, it i- to he feared that the Alumni, however loyal in spirt, have not done a great deal, promoting the interests of the College. En the first place, the constitution is entirely inadequate when it comes to concerted action. Under present conditions any proposed action must come before the Association in the annual husiness meeting at Commencement and be v ' ted up( n by the resident Alumni and the visiting; Alumni. The latter contingency naturally varies from year to year and it therefore falls to the resident Alumni largely to direct the affairs of the Association. It can readily he seen that no very important plans tor the advance- ment of the College interests can he put into effect until means are devised whereby all Alumni, whether present or absent, can have a voice in the proceedings. Another weakness in the constitution is the method, or rather lack of method, of raising- funds for any enter- prise whatever. At the business meeting " in 1909, a committee was appointed to draft a new constitution, which shall supply what is lacking- in the old one and the aim of which shall be to greatlv strengthen the Association. This constitution will come up for adop- tion at the coming- Commencement, 1910. The " promotion of acquaintance among- the graduates " has been accomplished to a gratifying extent, through the organization of local associations. These are found chiefly in the large cities, where the Alumni meet in reunion once a year or more often. This Spring, the first county Alumni Association was formed at Russell, Kansas, and it is to be hoped that the Alumni in many other counties will fall into line. There are now thirteen local Associations: Kansas City. Washington. D. C. Chicago. Eastern States, Seattle, Topeka, Southern California, Oakland, Cal.. Grand Junction. Colo.. Wichita, Kan., Wabaunsee, Kan.. Manhattan, Kan., and Russell. These As- sociations are a success, not only from a social standpoint but as a strengthener of " Home " ties and a help toward active loyalty to the Colleg-e and its interests. 262 ROYAL PURPLE igio At the annual meeting in 1906, The Jayiiawker (the name was later changed to The Alumnus) was adopted as the official Alumni journal. It is edited by a member of the Association and has for its object a closer bond among the .Alumni and the honor and glory of our Alma Mater. It has not received the support of a very large proportion of the Association, but a few loyal ones who stand back of it are working and hoping for better things. A few years ago the Alumni Association procured oil paintings of the three deceased ex- Presidents, Denison, Anderson and Fairchild and these portraits now hang upon the walls of the College library. Just now there is a move- ment to secure the help of the Alumni in instituting the new athletic field for the College. Whether there will be some concerted action or whether the project will lie supported by only those who have an es- pecial liking for athletics, it is too early to determine.

These prizes were first on pure bred Shorthorn yearling, third on pure bred Shorthorn calf, third on grade Angus yearling and first on grade Hereford two-year-old. The grade Hereford two-year-old. Sunflower Lad, was pronounced the champion grade Hereford of the show. At the International Live Stock Show at Chicago. 111., the same year, five steers were shown, winning six prizes.

At the International this same year. 1906, the College exhibited eight steers, and in the open classes won : On pure breds — First on ROYAL PURPLE 1910 m Shorthorn two-year-old, fourth on Shorthorn yearling, fourth on Shorthorn calf, first on Shorthorn herd, and first on Angus calf. On grades and crosses — Fir-t on Angus two-year-old, and third on Shorthorn yearling. At this show the pure bred Shorthorn " Tim " was made champion of the two-year-olds, and thus was sent forward a candidate for the highest honor Nine steers were shown at the American Royal in 1007. The prizes won were: Fir-t on pure bred two-year-old Shorthorn, first and third on pure bred Shorthorn calves, first on pure bred Short- horn herd, third on grade Shorthorn yearling, and fourth on pure bred Angus two-year-old, first on pure bred Angus yearling, and sec- ond on pure bred Angus calf. This year at the International only -.•. ere shown. The winnings were, on pure breds, as follows: First on Angus calf, second on Angus yearling, fourth on Angus two-year-old, second on Angus herd and fifth on Shorthorn yearling. At the Royal in 1908 the Kansas College again brought out nine steers. All were pure breds and this time they were more sue than they were the year preceding. The winnings were: Fir Angus two-year-old. first on Angus herd, second on Angus calf, sec- ond on Galloway calf, second on Shorthorn yearling, -econd on Shorthorn calf, and second on Shorthorn herd. At the International in 1908 twelve steers were shown. In num- bers this was the largest exhibit ever made by the College up to that time and at this show, as at the Royal, all the steers shown were pure breds. The prizes won were: First on Angus two-year-old. fourth on Angus yearling, first on Angus calf, first on Angus herd, and third on Galloway calf. The Angus herd was placed third in com- petition with herds of all breeds. The Angus calf. ' " Symboleer. " was pronounced the champion calf of the show and was sent forward to contest tor grand champion. The present year. 1909. the College presented a stronger show of steers than ever before. Twelve head, all pure breds. were brought out at the Royal. The prizes won were: First on Shorthorn calf, second on Shorthorn yearling. =econd on Shorthorn herd, first on Champion Steer Hi-ril of a Former Year Champion Steer Herd, International Live Stock Show, 1909 ROYAL PURPLE 1910 279 Galloway yearling, first and second on Angus two-year-old, first and second on Angus yearling, second on Angus calf and first and third on Angus herd. In addition the Kansas College was awarded cham- ion steer on the yearling " Kansas Jim, " champion pure bred Angus on the two-year-old " King Ellsworth. " and champion pure bred or grade Angus on " King Ellsworth. " At the [nternat ' onal (December, 1909) the Kansas College made an even more creditable exhibit than at the Royal. All the steers shown were pure breds. The awards that went to the College of the Sunflower stale were: First and sixth on Angus two-year- old, first and fifth on Angus yearling, third on Angus calf, first and Fourth on Angus herd, fifth on Shorthorn two-year-old. fourth on Shorthorn yearling, first on Shorthorn calf, fourth on Shorthorn herd, and first on Galloway yearling. The calf " Benefactor " was made champion of the Shorthorn, and the two-year-old " King Ells- worth " was champion of the Angus. The award for champion herd, three steers get of one sire, competition open to any breed or grades, went to the Kansas College on the get of " Prince Duchess " 89636. In the show for the champion by ages the calf " Benefactor " was placed in reserve. The Angus calf " Symboleer " was pronounced champion of the yearlings and " King Ellsworth " won first place among the two-year-olds. Thus the Kansas College sent for- ward two candidates for premier honors, and came near sending a third, a record that would have indeed been enviable. It will be remembered that this was a second time that " Symboleer ' had en- tered the final battle for the grand championship, and again he was defeated, but this time he was placed In reserve to his stable mate. " King Ellsworth. " the steer that was finally designated " Grand Champion of the Show. " Other colleges have won the coveted pur- ple, but this is the first time that all three candidates for the highest honor came so near being held by one hand and the first time that both Grand Championship and Reserve have been owned, fed and shown by one exhibitor. When so many coveted prizes go to one exhibitor, the first ques- tion asked is. how were these cattle fitted and fed? At all times they 280 ROYAL PURPLE iqio were treated as individuals. In winter they were kept in a moder- ately warm barn during bad weather and at night. On fair days, when there was plenty of sunshine, they were turned into a lot adjoining the barn during the day and thus given outdoor exercise and fresh air. In the summer they were kept in the stalls in the barn during the day and given the run of a grass lot at night. Their ration consisted in the main of alfalfa, corn, bran and linseed. The proportions in which these feeds were fed depended entirely upon the needs of the individual steer. A ration that will meet the demands of one steer might not be at all suitable to another. In a large meas- ure the feeding and fitting of these steers was a study of needs and likes and dislikes of the individual animal. After all the care in feeding and showing the next question asked is, what becomes of the Grand Champion? There is a rule that the Grand Champion of the International must be sold and slaughtered. There are, however, many things that may happen to him before he is finally slaughtered and served as roast and steaks. This year, 1909, the Grand Champion " King Ellsworth, " shown by the Kansas Agricultural College, was purchased by the Hartford Market Company, of Hartford, Conn. He was carried in a special car from Chicago to New England. After being paraded and shown throughout New England and exhibited at a number of towns to the thousands of admiring people, who flocked to see him, he will be slaughtered, the carcass exhibited for a few days, and then the choice cuts for dinners to the fastidious rich of the East. Sometimes it happens that the Grand Champion is purchased In- one of the large department stores or other great city establishments. He is taken from the show yard to his new home and placed in a stall carpeted with moss and decorated with flowers and evergreens and the herdsman who has fitted and shown him introduces him, as it were, to the multitudes of admirers who visit his palace each day. He is moved up and down on the elevator from floor to floor, from day to day. It is advertised that he will be in the toy department on the second floor on Monday, and on that day the school children flock to see him. On Tuesday he will be on the seventh floor and on ROYAL PURPLE tow ■i- Wednesday the third, and so on until he has spent a day on each floor of the establishment. He is then slaughtered and the choice cuts placed in the show windows along ' with the gold and diamonds. Then at Christmas time one or two choice cuts are used for the pro- prietor ' s Christmas dinner and the remainder of the cuts are given as Christmas presents to the heads of departments and to employees of the store. Again, the Grand Champion may he purchased for a Christmas banquet of some society or club in Boston. Xew York. Washington, or other large city. He is carried in a triumphal march, with the heralds announcing his coming, from Chicago to the place of the banquet. There he is exhibited for a few days as the highest type of beef animal produced that year. He is then slaughtered and the car- cass exhibited until the time of the festivities, when the choice cuts are served at what is perhaps the greatest banquet of the year. These are but a few of the things that may happen to a Grand Champion, but no matter where he goes or for what purpose the car- cass is used he is always paraded and exhibited as the most perfect product of the beef producing industries for that year, and Kansas may justly be proud that here at the College of the Sunflower state, on her own alfalfa and corn, was developed an animal that is now being heralded through the entire land as the greatest steer produced during the vear of 1909. Stock Judging T 282 ROYAL PURPLE iqio Editorial N CRITICISMS of this work, we ask that we he given the leniency usually accorded an amateur. The purpose of the work has been to portray things as we see them, and the point of view is necessarily that of the student body. It is a wise clog that knows his master and as we make no exceptional claims along the line of wisdom, it is to be expected that we will err in our analvzation of the higher authority of this school. We have acted, however, without malice aforethought or premeditation and therefore demand the right of trial for misdemeanors in the second degree. We are expected to be original, yet there are things which you claim an inalienable right to demand in a work of this character, and which must therefore he a repetition of what has been said in class books before. In this last and meditative period of our work we have come to regard it as our final farewell to our alma mater. The unwritten history of the class, which is here for the first time set forth, is given to satisfv the curiosity of t he inquisitive rather than as a confession of our implication in the escapades which have remained unraveled mysteries. Upon these grounds we claim the right of exemption from prosecution from the evidence here given. To the oncoming Freshmen we wish to sav, " You are entering the formulative period of your life. You will get out of college just what von put into it. Learn to guide your own footsteps, hut lie not too heedless of the advice of your fathers. Do not take as your motto, ' Work before pleasure, ' neither give pleasure the precedence. You can so regulate your activities that you will have ample time for both. It is indeed hard to differentiate the two, for work should be pleasure and there is no real pleasure but that involves work. A knowledge of text- books comprises but a small part of an education, but training your- self to be thorough in this small part provides the greatest stepping stone to higher knowledge. Be therefore not too sure that you know what you want nor confine yourselr to a singleness of purpose. Live rather the college life in all its phi ses that you may be more able to cope with the world when, like ourselves, you come to say farewell to your Alma Mater.

Then I saw a little man turn With a tiny magic lantern, As he stumbled o ' er the threshold, Set the lantern on the floor.
