L, For more than fifty years Milton College has been true to its chosen , motto, Fides. On every instrument executed by the college, on every di- ploma certifying a degree, this word has stood, from the early days of the , new peace following the great civil war to these times of sterner stress 'N after the 'greater world war. Faith in God and fidelity to men-these are the two mighty meanings wrapped up in the mystic word on the seal of ' Milton's service. Fides, the "faith that makes faithful," is our watchword. 5, Only with such a faith as this could the life of Milton College have been 4, truly lived. Only by enduring in such a faith can Milton in the future ful- fil the promise of her past. l Why has Milton College today a claim upon the love and devotion of her sons and daughters? Why, from her humble situation, without fear 9 and with just pride, can she look out upon the world in which she is sur- ' rounded by many more exalted institutions? It is because her seal is true , and never false. It is because of her unswerving adherence to her ideals. It is because she has possessed, by the grace of God, the "faith that makes faithful." 'W Honest service, worthy work well done, loyalty to truth, and fidelity to those who under her guidance are become seekers after truth-these ideals, ' committed to Milton by her noble founders, whose love begot the school from , which the college sprang, these steady purposes, dominant in the life of the l' past and steadfastly pursued in the future, will alone insure the worthy success of Milton College in the years to come. Let not her seal become merely a formal attestation to a legal instrument, but, like faithful love, let it be "set as a seal upon our hearts," that in days of trial yet to appear, every soul that has felt the impress of Milton College may be actuated by the "faith that makes faithful." , PRESIDENT WILLIAM C. DALAND. ll l l ... .. 1, PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS OF MILTON COLLEGE MILTON, WISCONSIN . ,N Fi: Air 2ln:'1lil1-Yfeilffgbezfzugf Lg? 43:3 QI f.,:,:Z ': ' ' , . r.

E Qi, W1, ' ,: xt-J: ',a,f,! 3:2-V Y :sean 'lea-f :sf 'f L UR PRICSIDIENT was born in 1860, in New York City, in the days just before the Civil War which form the link between the primitive United States grown from the heritage of the fathers and the huge nation of our own time, marked by a material prosperity beyond the dreams of the men of those days, but torn by conliicts equally as distant from their minds. . The child of that epoch who can still live on in active contact with the rush- ing torrent of twentieth century changes is in a fortunate position as an educator. for his character in the formative years was moulded by a family life founded on four-square principles then unquestioned, resulting in a discipline seldom seen in our generationg and, yet, he found himself on the threshold of the new world with which he can be in harmony because he did not approach it too late. The little boy of seven, riding his tricycle up and down the sidewalk of the old fashioned street in which was his home-the frame house still stands in Fortieth Street because the owner now values the site at a million udollars, and will not sell until he gets that price-knew no such freedom as the children of Milton consider their natural right. A New 'England father who traced his descent from an I-luguenot ancestor and a mother whose forbears were English and Scotch Dissenters were not likely to spoil their first son-not in the sixties. The Bible was the rule of life in that home, and it was the Bible strictly in-- terpreted and unsoftened by the modern aids to religious development. Religious observances, truthfulness, strict honesty in all dealings, obedience, and reverence for elders were the virtues insisted upon there. There were a grandmother and a great-grandmother in the household and the family life was marked by decorum and dignity. Nevertheless, the diverse threads of ancestry wove many bright colors into the pattern produced even in that Puritan atmosphere. Among these the gift of a facility in learning languages and a taste for music were the most note- worthy. There was always music in the home and it was held in honor, not treated as a pastime. It is interesting, though, to discover that "Willie,,' as his parents always called him. was strictly human when it came to practicing, and that once his lessons were stopped "because he was making no progress." The family moved from New York to Elizabeth, New jersey, when Wfillie was about eight years old, but he was not sent to school until he was ten. This, however, was by no means the beginning of his education. He could read Hu- ently from the time he was seven, and after going to 'Elizabeth used to read stories aloud to the little girl of the next door neighbor as they sat on either porch to- gether. All he remembers of her is that her name was Emma. Emma faded into oblivion and stories gradually merged into history, the most fascinating story of all, until at ten, as he entered a schoolroom for the first time, he was actively interested in the events taking place in the world, was in the habit of reading the papers, and was well informed on the details of the meeting of the Vatican Council which declared the dogma of the Infallibility of the Pope in 1870, a much discussed subject of that period. VVVVV AAAAA ZIWIXII V Page Five XIX XXI The public schools in lilizabeth at that time were in a low state, and no child was sent to them whose parents could afford tuition in one of the numerous private schools of the city. VVilliam began his school days in the best boys' school and always attended institutions for boys and young men onlyg therefore in his own academic life he never knew either co-education or the public school system. The schools he attended were quite guiltless of the variety of courses of- fered in our high schools, but were greatly superior to them in the thoroughness with which they taught elementary branches. The mistakes in spelling common among college students today would have met with drastic treatment if com- mitted by a lower class boy in the seventies, while errors in grammar in collo- quial speech at once marked one as "uneducated" President Daland still treas- ures the large octavo volume called "The Library of Poetry and Song" which he won when he was about fourteen as a prize for taking first place in a city-wide spelling match in which all the schools participated. In those days in the eastern states a college education was considered either as the perquisite of thevwealthy class, or as the necessary training for one of the professions. It was the custom for the average well-to-do citizen of Elizabeth, as of other suburban towns, to secure for his boy when fifteen, or thereabout, a subordinate position with one of the large firms in New York, where the wages were nominal for the first few years, but the opportunity for advancement was so great that the suburban trains were full of these young commuters in the var- ious stages of their development. It was the day when the self-made men who held the reins of industry had a profound distrust of the ability of the college bred youth to adapt himself to business methods, and when there was a general belief that the only man who could ever rise to the top in the business world was the one who had begun as a lad at the- very foot. William's father, himself a successful salesman, was anxious to start his son on a business career in good time. Here came the first crisis in the boy's life, when he was obliged to oppose his own individuality to his father's deter- mined purpose. He astonished his parents by declaring that he must have a college education, and completed this act of independence by the addition of the heresy that he desired the education for itself-not as the means to some end. A fortunate circumstance made it possible for him to carry out his plan without much financial aid from his father. He had begun to attract attention by his piano playing, and when he was fourteen he secured a position as organist in one of the city churches, which made it possible for him to obtain several piano pupils. He entered the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn a month before his fifteenth birthday and began a strenuous life which had no variation for the next four years. To reach Brooklyn from Elizabeth it was necessary to take the 7:05 train every morning, and the trip, going and coming, occupied nearly four hours of each school day. In order to reach the college on time he was obliged to rise at six, or earlier. He studied evenings and also on the train. On Saturdays he practiced on the organ, and spent the rest of the day in teaching, gaining more pupils each year. On Sundays he played both morning and evening in the Presbyterian services. Saturday night and Sunday afternoon were his only leisure hours during the school year, and the only time for association with his brothers and sisters, of whom there were now seven. IIIIIISQIIIIII Page Six III XXI Social life, which now occupies so large a place in a college course, was un- avoidably sacrificed to the necessity of the situation, nor was there any room for athleticsg but in New York and Brooklyn there was always the best music to be heard. and during the summer vacation there was an opportunity for a more leisurely family life, although even the summers were spent in musical work, especially organ practice, because churches then did not have to be heated. The June before he was nineteen years of age he was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in the so-called "Liberal Course," a fixed curriculum without elective studies, in which French and German were pursued during all four years five times a week. and in which all the college mathematics including calculus and mathematical astronomy were required studies. In this course he was taught Anglo-Saxon by Professor Brainerd Kellogg. I-lis most intimate college chum was Nathaniel Frothingham, also much interested in music. who through his father had tickets admitting them both to rehearsals of the Brook- lyn Philharmonic Society. During William's junior and senior year, therefore, very frequently on Friday afternoons he had the opportunity of watching Theo- dore Thomas conduct rehearsals of that magnificent orchestra. After his grad- uation he spent his whole time in church work and in the teaching of music. In the autumn of the first year after his graduation he gave a series of organ recitals, of which he has preserved a program which would be very interesting to members of the Milton College Orchestra. His inner life at this time was nourished by constant reading of philosophical history and the newer thought on biology and evolution. The latter tendency much disturbed his intensely religious mother. During the next four years he had a number of pupils in Elizabethport, mostly Germans, the organist of the German Presbyterian church there and his friends. Nearly all of these could speak English, but their young teacher pre- ferred to conduct the lessons in German. and thus he acquired his working pro- ficiency in that tongue. During the winter of 1883. after a period of religious doubt and depression, he began anew to lead a Christian life and that spring definitely offered himself 21S a minister of the gospel. A little group of his friends went with him one Sunday to Summit, N. j., to hear him preach his first sermon in a little country Church. There was one in that company who will never forget the drive through the summer woods and the young preacher's earnest face and eloquent voice as llc dedicated himself to a life of service instead of one of material advancement. A year later she-became his wife. In the autumn of 1883 young Mr. Daland entered the Union Theological Seminary in New York City, from which he was graduated in 1886. During these years he held the position of organist in the First Baptist Church in Pierre- pont Street. Brooklyn. Wfhile pursuing his theological studies he became a Sev- Cljfll-Day Baptist. and during his last year in the seminary he supplied the pul- Dff Ill the church of that faith in New York City. In 1886 he was ordained at lallmelfl. N. J., and immediately after his graduation took his wife and their infant son, now the "l7rof. John" of Milton College, to the little village of Leon- ardsville, N. Y., to enter on his first regular pastorate. 'lhenncst five years were the most peaceful and, in a personal sense. the most satisfying of his life as a minister. The young pastor loved the place and T110 people and threw into his work all the energy and devotion of his nature. BBHEBISZIEEEBE Page Seven XIX E XXI He used his musical talent as an aid to his church and pastoral work and never rested until he had made use of every spark of ability in any young man or woman which could be used to interest them in the life of the church. While at Leon- ardsville he studied further the Hebrew and other Semitic languages and gave lectures on the Bible to his congregation. In recognition of this advanced work Alfred University in 1887 conferred upon him the degree of Master of Arts. The people at Leonardsville responded to his efforts and the friendships then formed have always endured. Here a second son, Clifton, was born in 1889. It was a wrench to pastor and people when these almost idyllic relations were severed in 1891 by the acceptance of a call to the pastorate at Westerly. R. I., a much larger church, where there was always harmony between pastor and people, but where problems became numerous and where a simple life was no longer possible. During the even flow of the years in Leonardsville, Mr. Daland had employed his leisure hours in writing. I-Ie translated the "Song of Songs" from Hebrew and began to edit "The Peculiar People," a monthly mag- azine in the interests of Christian Judaism. The correspondence entailed by this work resulted in a 'growing acquaintance beyond the bounds of the editor's little parish and even abroad. During the VVesterly pastorate there were often Jews from different parts of Europe staying in the house for short visits. Two children, Stephanie and Alexander, were born in VVesterly. In 1895 Mr. Daland visited England as a representative of the Seventh-Day Baptist Missionary Society, and the next year took his family to London, where he became pastor of the Mill Yard Church. At this time Milton College con- ferred upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity, partly in conse- quence of the personal admiration which the late President Whitford always felt for him and his work as a minister. Later in 1903, he received a similar honorary title from Alfred University. The London pastorate lasted four years, and during this time Dr. Daland was twice sent on special missions to other countries: once to Berlin in the in- terest of Jewish work, and once to the African Gold Coast, where for some weeks he lived in a native village, the only white man there. When returning from this latter voyage he was seized with a deadly fever common on the coast and narrowly escaped with his life. In' 1900 the Missionary Society decided to dis- continue supplying thc London church with a minister from America, and Dr. Daland and his family returned to their native land, and, having accepted a call to Leonardsville, he went back with his wife and four children to the village where he had begun his ministerial work in his young manhood. Here, two years later, he faced another great decision, probably the one most important in his life. President Whitford had died and Dr. Daland was asked to become his successor. This was a perplexing question, and it was many weeks before the decision was made. This meant giving np the active ministry, for which he had fitted himself and for which he felt himself to be adapted, and entering upon an untried work, of which he knew but little except that it would be beset with difficulties. While the decision hung in the balance, the one weight which inclined it towards Milton was his belief that the college was founded on truth and sin- cerity. that whatever might be its defects or its lacks, there was nothing merc- tricious in its ideals. This conviction he had formed from his acquaintance with President Whitford and with Professor Shaw, the latter of whom had lived one mmmmmen mmmmm Z, 'wa-rs,'t 1 gn ,. dw 'sry A A A flltitiittfiy Q.llZii,J'l5'EfG?tT A A A year in the Leonarclsville parsonage, and also from the testimony of the late Rev. O. U. Whitforcl. whose strict honesty of opinion always carriecl great influence. Thus Presiclent Dalancl came to Milton College in clays which were rather clark. and there is no neecl to write of his life during these last eighteen years, for this life is woven into the history of the college and is as their own lives to all the sons and claughters of Milton. Whatever mistakes and failures Presiclent Da- lancl may have macle, however short of his icleals have been the achievements in the college, there is no cloubt of the nearness of his relation to Milton stuclents. "Prexy" at Milton is no perfunctory stuclent slang, but a term which on the lips of the boys and girls in Milton College is equivalent to "Father" in the home.

V Sli , Eli ' 2'3" 'X A It was out of the dream of a sturdy pioneer that Milton College arose. liarly in the spring of 1839, joseph Goodrich, a descendant of the New England Puritans, with his family and others emigrated from New York to Prairie du Lac. where Milton now is. Here he laid out a large public square and distri- buted lots to those who would build upon them. But, as the little settlement grew, the rare vision of joseph Goodrich saw clearly the necessity of an educa- tion for the young people of the vicinity further than that of the district school. lt was he who gave the ground for the Hrst building: it was he who paid the cost of the structure tabout three hundred dollarsj. and for a number of years he was the sole supporter of the school. The history of Milton College falls into four periods. that of the private school, 1844-18483 that of the Academy, 1848-18543 from 1854-1867, that of the academy which pre- pared students for - teaching: and from 1867 to the present time, that of the col- lege. The building' in which the school be- gan its existence in 1844 was situated on the west side of the public park. It was a one-story gravel structure on the front of which was painted in huge letters "Mil- ton Academyf' Al- though the school was of modest preten- sions, during' the first year it had an attend- ance of sixty students. It was in 1848 that the charter for the founding of Milton Academy was ob- tained from the legis- lature of lVisconsin. In the next few years Milton Academy 1844 the school progressed BEER! SE WER!! Page 'l'wenly-five D 93.7. gait-1 A Q is :fi'f1'41a3f?i A Q .Q by leaps and bounds. In 1849 a new three-story building was erected on a hill in the southwestern part of the village at a cost of over five thousand dollars. This building forms the north half of the present main building known as College Hall. Two years later a women's dormitory, Goodrich I-Iall, was built. The course of study was enlarged and additions were made to the faculty. Among these teachers was Professor Albert Whitford, now professor emeritus of mathematics in Milton College. This period likewise saw the formation of two of the present literary societies, and the beginning of a Christian Associa- tion. is" s Main Hall Goodrich Hall In 1858 the Rev. William C. Whitford, then pastor of the Milton Seventh Day Baptist Church, was requested by the trustees to take charge of the acad- emy. After one year he resigned his pastorate to bcome permanently connected with the school, a connection which was maintained until his death in 1902. He received his education at De Ruyter Institute, De Ruyter, N. Y., Union College, Schenectady, N. Y., and Union Theological Seminary, New York City. I-Iis life-long devotion to Milton College was an inspiration to all who came in con- tact with him. During the Civil War the attendance diminished with every call for volun- teers. At one such call to the colors forty-live young men stepped forward to place their names on the roll of Co. C. of the 49th Wfisconsin Infantry. Drills were held in the chapel and on the campus. Altogether the academy sent out a total of 325 students of whom 41 sacrificed their lives. A tablet in the col-- lege library perpetrates the names of those who died in battle. After the close of the war the enrollment steadily increased to over four hundred. The need for accommodations became so urgent that in 1863 an old mill was purchased for four hundred dollars, removed to the north side of Col- lege Street and remodeled as a men's dormitory. Three years later, as a result of the need for class rooms, an addition was built on the main building, making it as it is at the present time. In response to the demand for college courses of study, Milton Academy was converted into a college by a charter from the state, March 13. 1367. It EHHEBISZIEHEHE Page Twenty-six V V W ,gg gf-KRW: W W V 455 31.211 QW: -5. A A A f'AfWf"'t A A A was about this time that the library was founded by the Rev. Daniel Babcock, who at his death, left to the college his private library and one thousand dollars with which to buy books. At the death of l.'resident XVhitford on May 20, 1902. Dr. XN'illiam C. Daland, who was then pastor of the Seventh Day Paptist Church of Leonardsville, N. Y., was called to take up the work of the lamented former president. Few men were better equipped by ability and character to assume this of- lice than Dr. Ualand. and his self-sacrificing devotion to the interests of the col- lege has been rewarded by the affectionate regard of hundrds of students whose lives bear the imprint of his influence. At the commencement of 1902, it was suggested that the most fitting me- morial to the late president Whitford would be the Science hall which he had so earnestly advocated. The cost of the building which was about thirty thou- sand dollars, was met by subscriptions. A gift of live thousand dollars was received from the widow of the late George 1-1. Habcock, and six thousand live hundred dollars from Andrew Carnegie through the influence of Dr. james Mills, a graduate of the college. The building was finished in October 1906. and was dedicated at Commencement of the next year. For some time the need for a gymnasium had been pressing and in 1909. with the gift of one thousand dollars from the class of that year, pledges were made amounting to over eight thousand dollars. The building, which cost over twenty-two thousand dollars was 'Iune 1911. lt is used both for a gymnasium and an auditorium. The old Christian Association was reorganized in 1907 and formed into two societies, the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. NV. C. A. In 1910 a new woman's literary society was formed, known as the Miltonian lyceum. Among other student ac- tivities are the Athletic Association which includes all college students, and the EEHHM WHERE Page '1'wenty-seven v v W 212 M at-1 gh W W 4 ga Sita it A A A 4 112 .fttfmf-A A M A 'mm Oratorical Association, under whose auspices the oratorical contests are held yearly and debates at intervals. The past year has seen a revival of interest in intercollegiate debating which bids fair to attain the place of importance which it once held in college activities. XVith the declaration of war in 1917 many students enlisted as in Civil lVar days. Once again the campus 1'esounded with the tread of marching men. Once again as in those olden days the bugle sang out its challenge and Milton's sons rose to answer the call. Some never returned, and the names of Lloyd Perry, Carroll XVest, Kenneth Randolph, Paul Randolph, l'aul Kelly, Clinton Lewis and Floyd Van Horn, gleam brightly on the roll of the honored dead. In autumn of 1918 the Students' Army Training Corps was opened as a unit established in connection with Whitewater Normal School, under the command of Lieut. Stephen W. Dawes. Goodrich Hall was used as a barracks to house the fifty-live who enrolled. The organization disbanded before Christmas, and of those students who came expressly to enter the S. A. T. C., scarcely any re- mained-. lt would be impossible to write an account of the history of this institution without speaking of certain teachers whose lives have been so interwoven with the college as to be a part of it. Probably no one has exerted a deeper and more lasting influence upon the history and policy of the college than llrof. Albert XVhitford, next to his brother. As an instructor he was a potent factor in the development of the academy of early days, and later he gave his services to Milton College until 1911, when he was made professor emeritus, with his for- mer title. Another faithful teacher was l'rof. .lairus M. Stillman, who for nearly forty years devoted his life and talents to the music department of the college. I-lc was an able chorus leader, and it is to him that Milton owes its renown in choral singing. Dr. Stillman held musical conventions in several states and was widely known as the composer of the State song of NVisconsin, the Badger Song. At his retirement in 1909 his work as director of the school of music was ably con'- tinued by Miss Alberta Crandall, who with her sister, Mrs. Iillen C. Place, had had charge of the teaching of instrumental music since 1903. It is only within ZTXXZHISZ XXXII Page Twenty-eight W 'W V W W V the last year that the plan has been adopted of giving college credits for thc applied study of music, although the musical courses have always been popular ones. Prof. Ludwig Kumlien was head of the Natural l-listory and Physiology department for thirteen years until his death in December 1902. He was a graduate of Albion Academy and had studied at the University of XVisconsin. He had been a naturalist in the l-lowgate Polar lixpedition in 1877-77, and arti- cles of his relating to North American birds and fishes frequently appeared in scientific journals. At his death his work was taken up by Prof. Albert R. Crandall, who after his graduation from Milton College in 1873, spent live years in study at Harvard, was assistant in the Geological Survey of the state of Ken- tucky, and was a professor in the College of Agriculture of that state. The President's Home Another devoted instructor was Prof. Edwin Shaw, a graduate in 1888, wh: ivas ,l"rofessor of Latin and chemistry in the college for eighteen years and who is .now Secretary of the Sabbath Tract Society, and of the Seventh Day Baptist Missionary Society. Dr. Albert XV. Kelly, Doctor of Philosophy of Otterbein University, Ohio, was professor of chemistry in the college for eight years. a period of service which was ended by his death in 1916. Other former instructors in the college were Mrs. limma T. l'latts, teacher of the- French language from 1898 to 1907, Miss Agnes Babcock, instructor in ClOClltlOl1 and English from 1904 to 1907, Mrs. Janette Day, instructor in elocu-- tion from 1907 to 1909, and Miss May B. Smith, instructor in French and ling- hsh from 1907 to 1910, and also librarian. D Qf Milton students a considerable number have attained distinction in var- ious tields of endeavor. Especially is this true in educational work, for Milton Lollege has furnished more teachers to the state in proportion to its size than any other institution. Among these were Prof. Albert Salisbury deceased, a EHBBBISZIEBBHE Page Twenty-nine .. .1-7 ta, gt.. 1 ,, 3'.".:3a? ily-M2 wig graduate of the lirst class in 1870, who was for many years the president of VVhitewater State Normal School, and the llon. -lesse B. Thayer, a graduate of the same class, who for several years served as a professor of mathematics in the State Normal School at River Falls, VVisconsin, and afterwards was state superintendent of public instruction for four years. It has been said that no living Wisconsin educator has rendered more con- spicuous service to the state than has L. D. Harvey, a graduate of Milton 118723. After several years of successful teaching in city schools he accepted the posi- tion of professor in the Oshkosh Normal School at Milwaukee, a position which he held for six years. For four years he was state superintendent of schools, and for many years since he has been president of Stout Institute at Menomonie, Wisconsin. Samuel Plantz, president of Lawrence College and author of several books was for a time a student at Milton, as was also the late President Charles R. Van Hise, of the University of Wisconsin. Others who had notable careers along educational lines were Lucius Heri- tage, who studied in European universities and became professor of Latin in the University of Wfisconsin, and Sheppard Rockwood, major in the U. S. army, in the Civil War, professor of mathematics in Milton College, assistant state superintendent of schools of Wisconsin, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture at Washington, D. C., and Secretary of the Board of Regents of the Normal Schools of Wisconsin. I Among former students who attained success in other than educational Work were Albert Robinson, chief civil engineer of construction of the Mexican Central Railroad: George R. Peck, Chief Counsel of the Santa Fe railroad, and later Chief Counsel of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railroad, li. Still- man Bailey, a graduate of the college in 1893, a physician and dean of Hahne- mann Medical College, Chicago, Orren T. VVilliams, a graduate of Lawrence Col- lege and Judge of Circuit Court, Milwaukee, Wisconsin: l-Iylon T. Plumb, in- structor in Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, N.

During the Civil VVar there were 325 enlistments of young men and boys who had been students in Milton Academy before 1866. Of these, 41 gave their lives for the Union. Though great pains have been taken to make this list correct, there may be some errors. These men proved their devotion to their country by giving her all they had to give--their lives. Milton in the World War Wfhen the United States declared war on Germany in April 1917, Milton's sons did not hesitate to answer to their country's call. Filled with that love of country that was so great in the hearts of the youths of '61, filled with a love of God and sincerity of purpose, one hundred Milton College men and boys went forth to serve their country, in whatever she asked of them. Seven of these men never came back to the halls and campus they loved so dearly. May we, who did come back. and we. who could not go with the bovs. hold deep within our hearts their sacred memory. Let us, like the boys of '6l. and the boys of '17, pledge our lives to one of service, sacrifice and devotion to our country. our school and our ideals. Let each be willing to shed the last drop of his blood rather than let Old Glory be lowered one instant from the Zenith of Christian and American Democracy. 1 World War Heroes Paul David Kelley july 18, 1918.

Far hack we have to look from where we stand As juniors now,f far on and near the end. But still we treasure memories of the night When we were entertained,-the freshman class. Though green and white the garlands shone around, XVe thought that green was prettiest, anywayg W'e'd have no other color if we could!

And so we calmed our minds with algebra, And won Prof. Fred by our intelligence. As sophomores our luck was much the sameg No scrapping organized again that year! But still we had our skirmishes,-oh, yes! And there are girls who never can forget That night of nights and Tacy in the trunk, And one at least can feel upon him yet i The chilly waters of an autumn stream,- And certain freshmen tied up fast to trees, And certain people walking home alone 'VVay lateat night, on lonely star-lit roads, And secret parties in 'most any place . Away from curious freshmen and their schemes. The year flew by, and with our ranks increased By five strong athletes, coming home from war, XVC worked and played through many a happy day, Under the banner of the gold and blue. As juniors we have found ourselves, all right. for basketball is ours. The championship There wouldnit be much baseball, we're afraid, If our men failed,-and oratorically, XVe need but show the record that is ours, For in the contest, Herb and Etta won! lVe have three men on the debating teamsg VVe're represented well on staffs and things, By literary aspirantsg and too. VVe're' glad that we can claim the editor Of the 'Reviewg and many of his staff.

Kenyon "When we first came on this campus, Freshmen we, as green as grass." So runs a familiar old song which carefree students in American colleges have been singing for two or three generations, and which has met with favor among the literary societies of Milton. This particular verse, however, should either be omitted or revised when the song is sung by the Class of 1923, for when the present Sophomores first set foot on the campus in September, 1919, they showed almost no signs of the greenness and awkwardness generally attributed to Freshmen. ' "Can you direct me to the registrar's office?" and "Where can I lind a place to room and board?" are usually the first words uttered by the new student as he steps from the train and begins to wonder whether Milton College is within walking distance, or whether he will have to take a street ear to reach the campus. In 1919, however. it was a common occurrence for a newly arrived Fresh- man to wave to old friends from the train, window, and to begin shaking hands all around as soon as he reached the station platform. On the way from the train to the college, instead of asking questions about boarding houses and street cars, he would very likely rattle off the following line of talk: 1 "My, but it seems good to get back again, George. I suppose you've al- ready got things straightened up in our old room, haven't you? I'll leave my 'suit-case there, and then we'll go up to Ma Maxson's a few minutes early and have a chance to meet Etta and the rest of the bunch before dinner.

Believe nie, he won't have an easy time of it, for I've been playing ball ever since col- lege was out. Oh, there goes 'jazz' Black. Hello. ye editor! And there's Prof. Freddy with his wife. lNell, here's the old room looking just as it used to. except that it's less cluttered up now. Doesn't it seem good, George. to get back to the little old college again?" And so on the new-comer would ramble from one phase of colleg'e life to another, just as if he had spent several years in the shadow of Whitford Memor- ial Hall and the old Main Building. Could such an experienced Freshman be termed green? Certainly not! According to the college catalogue for 1919-1920, the entering class in 1919 contained thirty-four members, thirteen of whom were men. Of these thirteen, nine had attended Milton College during the previous year when the S. A. T. C. was in existence. one had studied at a state university, and two others had served in the United States army. Only one out of the entire thirteen came to college directly from high school. Surely there was little semblance of greenness about such fellows as these. And, in addition to these bona tide Freshmen. there were tive special students who shared in all the social and athletic activities of the class, and who had all attended Milton College from one to three years each. By no stretch of the imagination could these veteran students be classed as in- nocent, timid, or awkward. The Class of 1923 began the college year with a rush, and defeated the Sophomores by such a margin in the class scraps that the new arrivals earned the right to wear ordinary head gear instead of the customary green Frosh caps. The night after their first class party, held at Rock River, was a momentous one for the Freshmen. who not only conducted their president, M. bl. Chadsey, back to town in safety after their outdoor supper, but got the better of the Sophomores in the all-night skirmishing that ensued. A feature of the scrap was the sensa- tional capture of .Henry Black, who was pulled out of bed about midnight. hustled into an automobile in his pajamas, and taken to the Newville bridge, where his captors proceeded to give him a systematic ducking in the cool waters of Rock River. ' After the class scrapping was over, the Frosh once more showed their super- iority by winning the interclass basketball championship with ease. The Fresh- man squad included "lUutch" Coon, A. K. Daland, l". H. Hemphill, D. S. Fox, and M. F. johnson.. Class officers for the first year were: President M. bl. Chadsey: vice presi- dent, Doris Randolph: secretary-treasurer. Catharine Shawg class advisor, Prof. F. G. Hall. At the beginning of the present school year the Class of 1923 numbered twenty-eight-six less than in 1919. Three new members, l.. 1. Maxson, R. H. Scholtz. and Leona 1. Sayre, entered last September. After the Freshmen had closed the class scrapping period by winning the sack rush before a big crowd in Village Park ,the Sophomores invited their victorious rivals to a supper and party at Taylor's Point, Lake Koshkonong. Several other social affairs were later held, the most important of which was a supper given in honor of ll. H. Hemphill and Chloe Van Horn shortly before their marriage. The couple were presented with a handsome silver dish by their classmates.

Burdick The class of 1924 entered Milton College September 23, 1920. At that time. there were registered thirty-five students recognized as members of the Freshman Class, in addition to four special students who have been to all intents and purposes members of this class. Since then additional registrations have raised the number to thirty- eight, not counting the four special students. This is one of the largest entering classes in the history of4Milton College, and includes students from all parts of the country. lileven states have one or more representatives each, and one foreign nation, China. also is represented. ' I The new students were entertained by the Baraca and Philathea classes of the Milton Seventh Day Baptist Church, in the church basement. on the evening of Sep- tember 25. Games, singing, and refreshments were enjoyed, and the new students were made to feel that they were indeed welcome. The official Freshman Social was held in the Gymnasium on Tuesday night, September 28. The social was chaperoned by Professor and Mrs. Barbour. After the "get-acquainted" march which began the evening, a welcome was extended to the Class of 1924. in behalf of the upper classes. by Miss Ruth Schlagenhauf. Allison Skaggs responded for the Freshmen. Music followed, and then "The Wedding, of Two Sports," an amusing stunt, all the parts -in which were taken by men students. The factulty stunt, "Gathering Nuts," presented the "Profs," and instructors to the Freshmen in a new light. We did not think they ever lapsed from dignity in such a way! Music. and the closing marches followed. after which the party broke up. The Class of 1924 certainly appreciated .its welcome to Milton College. Wliile the rest of the students were yet wrapped in slumber, the Freshmen assembled, at four o'clock the next morning, and walked out to "Kids Pond," about a mile north of town. where "hot dogs" and rolls were devoured with a zest which only such occasions can create. After attending to this matter of prime importance, a busi- ness meeting was convened. at which Professor Burdick, who chaperoned. the party, acted as temporary chairman. The following class officers were elected at that time: President.

Professor W. D. Burdick was unanimously elected as Class Advisor. After practicing a few yells, the newly-organized Class of 1924 returned to Milton, singing and shouting its new yells in defiance of the sleepy Sophomores. The following night was a busy one. A green and white Freshman banner was hoisted above the belfry, and the town and campus treated liberally with green paint. Morning disclosed a Sophomore banner waving defiantly from the flagpole south of the Main Building. This was promptly hauled down and beautified with a coat of green paint. In the meantime, the Sophomores had removed our banner from the belfry, and were determined to recover their own emblem from the flagpole. As a result, an impromptu Hag rush took place after chapel. The Sophs were unable to penetrate the mass formation of the defending Frosh, and class-time found the banner still in the hands of the Freshmen. At the special invitation of President Daland both fac- tions spent the remainder of the morning removing painted numerals from college property. Several hectic days followed, marked by frequent clashes between aurto parties of the rival classes. After several of their classmates had been given auto rides into the surrounding country and allowed to return via the Weston route, the Freshmen gathered together to plan revenge. The "angry mob" raided the Review office. extract- ing therefrom the astonished editor, Mr. Mills, and two other equally amazed Sophs, Messrs. Chadsey and Babcock. A pursuing party of Sophs, in two autos, overtook and "pocketed" the machine in which Mr. Chadsey was comfortably f?J ensconced. After liberating their companion---who later was discovered to be their president- the Sophs departed. Mr. Mills was escorted to the place recently occupied by his companion, and the whole "mob" set forth for parts unknown-to the luckless "guests," Reaching Janesville. the machines drew up before Razook's. The "guests" were induced to enter, minus their customary footwear. After traversing the length of that crowded hostelry, the two modern "barefoot boys" were only too glad of an opportunity to put their feet under the table and partake of refreshment to cool their fevered brows. The return was made by devious ways unknown to the unhappy victims, and, in a short time, they were invited to alight and complete their journey on foot. They accepted the "invitation" cheerfully C?l and their captors sped homeward in triumph. The official Freshman-Sophomore class rush settled finally all dispute between thc two classes. The rush was held in the Village Park, under the supervision of a com- mittee of Seniors and juniors. The Freshmen outnumbered their adversaries by six- teen to ten, but were penalized by having their "dead line," over which the sack had to be rushed, moved back a yard for each extra man over ten, forcing them to rush the sack six yards farther from the center than the Sophomore "dead line." Two out of three trials won for the Froshg the first and third attempts were successful, the second was a draw. Tl1e victorious Freshmen won the right to go through the year without wearing the distinguishing green caps. The Sophomore class showed its good sportsmanship by inviting the Freshmen to picnic with them at Taylor's Point. The hatchet was buried and the two classes feasted together. Stunts and games were played, and all differences caused by the strife of the previous week were forgotten. The Freshmen returned to Milton con- vinced that the Sophs were "good sports." - In the inter-class basketball tournament the reputation of the Freshmen was again at stake. They lost their Hrst game to the Seniors, 16 to l4. This was due, in a great measure. to the loss of Captain Daland. "Prex" was the mainstay of the team, and when he was removed on personals the Seniors forged to the front. ln the second game, however, the team walloped the Sophs, 23 to 5. The Frosh scored almost at will, while the Sophs had poor luck in shooting. The last game was lost to the juniors, winners of the tournament, who had four men who made the team this year, three of them letter men. The scoring in this game, on the Freshman side, was done entirely by Captain Daland. Hill, upon whom depended much of the forward work, was unable to play on account of an injured finger. , ' The Freshman Class published the November 16 issue of the "Milton College Re- view." lt appeared in the class colors-green and white-green ink being used. Great credit is due the Freshman staff for the quality of their production. The work was directed by Lowen G. Merrill, the class vice-president. as editor. U On the evening of November 17, the girls of the class entertained the boys, in honor of their defeat of the Sophomores in the class rush. Various games were played.

After the student body had voted to publish an annual it was necessary to choose a name for the book. All students were asked to suggest names and cover designs. Many names were submitted-at least sixty. From these the staff chose Hfteen. Then the faculty chose the best three of the fifteen. The students voted upon these last three: "Ficles" winning lirst place, "The Brown and Blue" second, and "The Summit" third place. Three people suggested the name Ficles, namely, Miss Goldie Davis, '21, Mr. H. P. Kakuske, '22, and Mr. VV. lol. Moeller, a special student. Mr. I-T. P. Kakuske's cover design was chosen by the faculty and Fides Staff as the best of the designs and suggestions ottered.

Then came the terrible days of the Civil VVar, and the members of the Ladies' Literary Society scraped lint and wound bandages. ln 1867 Milton Academy became Milton College. At that time there were so many Norwegian students in school that some classes were conducted in that language. lt must have been a Norwegian girl who proposed to christen the Ladies' Literary Society. the lduna Lyceum. ldun is a favorite Scandinavian goddess. Norse papers and periodicals are often named after her. Idun guards the golden apples of Asgard by which the gods retain their immortality. She is the goddess of spring and of nature's perpetual beauty. Idun is wedded to Brage, the god of poetry, for poetry in all times has found its inspiration in nature. The apple and the apple blossoms are symbol of Idun. So our mothers and our grandmothers received this baptism of blossoms and became Idunas, Since then many Milton College girls in the spring' time of their lives have found sweet the fragrance of the apple blossom. So well does nature love the apple blossom that it lives again in the ripeued apple as you may see if you cut a thin slice through the heart of the fruit and hold it to the light. And deep in the womanhood ol our girl g.g'racluates is the imprint of lduna.

Previously. there was only one literary society for women in the institution, the lduna l.yceum. It was of necessity too large to do full justice to the needs of each individual member. Because of this, some of the younger members felt that they would like to establish a rival society of the same general char- acter, and with the same literary and cultural end in view, To accomplish the desired end they separated'themselves from the lfdtma Lyceum and organized the Miltonian Lyceum. The charter members were Geneva Bennett, Zela Ben- nett, Nettie Crandall, Stephanie Daland, Margaret Hull, Nettie Hull, Marguerite Ingham, Grace Runner and Ruth Stillman. One memorable evening they niet in the room of two of their number on the third tloor of Goodrich Hall. and drafted a constitution. There was a great deal of discussion mingled with con- siderable levity before the important points of this document were agreed on, but at length everything was settled. The first regular meeting was held on the evening of january 8, 1910. in the physics recitation room of XVhitford Memorial Hall. The college authori- ties allowed the society to use that room until it might have one ot its own. At this meeting the constitution was unanimously adopted, and officers for the first quarter of the second semester were elected. .Ruth Stillman was the tirst presi- dent of the organization. Committees were also appointed to obtain new mem- XIXIIISQEKXXII Page Fifty-eight ? F i t sf F 53 if 'fi ne g K .QS Top Row-Hulett, Kumlien, Stockman, Bennett, Ingham, Schrader, Randolph.

A little later the motto, "Uebung macht den Meister," was chosen. As the lyceum had absolutely no furnishings for its room and no piano for its musical efforts, the Iduna Lyceum very generously lent it an unused reed organ which was in the possession of that society. Two weeks later, the hrst literary program was given. The work was be- gun with spirit and interest. The lyceum held its own very creditably during the first live months, and before june it had doubled the enrollment. The charter members were very anxious that their enterprise should not fail, and it was due to their untiring efforts that the society was finally established as a permanent organization. During the next year fortune favored them. Their was some decrease in attendance and enthusiasm, but those who had the interests of the Miltonian Lyceum at heart worked persistently toward their goal. The girls gave an en- tertainment in the form of a "County Fair," to which the public was invited. On December 14, 1912, the Miltonians and Oros gave a public mock trial in the gymnasium, for which they received a prize of seventy-five dollars from lEverybody's Magazine. Later. the lyceum gave a vaudeville entertaimnent called the "Miltonian Medley," which was a great success. . At the first meeting of the year 1913-1914, the society voted seventy-five dollars from the treasury as the tirst payment on a piano. It also made some song books. Various college songs were put into them, including an original Miltonian song written by Nela Kelley I-Iull. VVith happy heart and happy voice And sorrow banished quite. XVe'll join a song, a happy lay To the dear old Blue and VVhite. In praise of dear Miltonian Gur song shall ever beg VVith promise true We pledge to you Our faith and loyalty. .

And when our college days are o'er And we have taken Hight, Another throng shall raise our song To the dear old Blue and Xvhite. Till then with joy our songs we'll sing Our hearts be glad and brightg For though we roam, our hearts Find home XVith the dear old Blue and Wfhite. V The Miltonian Lyceum formed a habit of having a general social time for WBHHHEQQ WMEEW Page Sixty . icq, 12: in JY UW, cu wy 'li i gl li A A A Q'- . A A its members after the literary programs on Saturday nights, and the members were encouraged not to have engagements with the gentlemen on these occa- sions. Inspired by this custom, a member of the Urophilian Lyceum wrote a song about the girls. and a "Glee Club" of Oros sang it to them during one of the programs. It's a way the Miltonians have. sirs, We are without a heart, sirs, A way that makes you rave. sirs, From kindness we depart, sirs. Since you will not behave, sirs, XVe make an early start, sirs, life drive the boys away. To drive the boys away! Wie think it is but right, sirs, Chorus- On every Saturday night, sirs. To drive the boys away: To be most cruelly tight, sirs, lt's a way the Miltonians have. sirs, And drive the boys away. To drive the boys away. During the early part of the first semester of 1915, the Orophilian Lyceum very kindly offered the Miltonians the use of its room on the third lioor of XVhit- ford Memorial l'lall, for the remainder of the year. The membership of the Orophilian Lyceum chanced to be smaller than usual: so the gentlemen thought they could make use of the smaller room between their own and that of the llhilomathean society. The Miltonian Lyceum accepted this olifer with the un- derstanding that if the Oros found their new quarters too small, they should have their own room again. This arrangement continued until the close of the term. At the opening' of college in 1916 the society claimed for the First time in its history, the little. room on the third floor of VVhitford Memorial l-lall. It was decorated in blue and white, and the bluebird was adopted as the symbol of the society. Although its life has been short, the lyceum has gained distinct honors in the declamatory contests of the college. In 1909, previous to the organization of the Miltonian Lyceum, Geneva Bennett won iirst place. For the next six years members of this society were awarded first honors in the annual contests. In oratory the- ability has been no less. For many years the heroine of the Shakespearean play has been a Miltonian. At the time of the presentation of "The Tempest," by the lyceums, four of the live woman characters were members of that organization. On its tenth birthday the lyceum celebrated the event by giving a party for all its members. The guests wore their stiffest aprons, and their prettiest hair ribbons, and each one presented the lyceum with something to use in the room. About sixty dollars was received from the Miltonians who were no longer in college, and with a part of this money the lyceum bought a beautiful blue rug for the tioor. A This year, 1920-1921, interest and attendance have been good. The pro- grams have shown much thought and preparation and are a credit to the society. Worthy of mention is a joint session ot the Philos and Miltonians at which the new members of these lyceunis presented the program. It consisted of music, readings, talks on various subjects, yells, and a stunt by several of the new boys. The latter caused a great deal of merriment among the actors as well as the audience.

He, the great chief strong and mighty, Wfith a few more who were like him, Built upon the hill in Milton, , Built allordly hall of science. ln the reign of Sachem lfVilliam Certain of the youths determined That into a band they'd form them NVith the name of the Adelphic. Few they were and weak in number, Few to count, but strong in battle, Strong they were in heart and purpose In the firm determination , That they'd hold a public session. As the Sachem sat at dinner. Sat at dinner with his followers. Some one spake of the Adelphics, Sneering said of the Adelphics That they did amount to nothing, And another spoke most falsely. Falsely spoke and we will prove it. Said they could not hold a sessiong And the Sachem said while sitting, Said but few words wrath provoking, 'They are naught but understrappersf " ln the following year the Adelphic Society reorganized under the name of l'hilomathean, a name that has grown ever more honorable throughout sixty years. For an account of the birth of the Philos we are indebted to the late Dr. I.. A. Platts. This record he committed to writing in 1863, while a student in Milton Academy: "C Jn the evening of Sept. ll, 1860, a company of young men, animated with high hopes for the future, assembled in the mathematical room of Milton Acad- emy for the purpose of organizing a society for mutual improvement in de- bating, composition and elocution. They were not. however, permitted to pro- ceed under the most flattering circumstancesg for, hemmed in. as they were, by those narrow, dark, and impenetrable walls of the aforesaid mathematical room within, and surrounded without on every side by the Urophilian Society, IZBBBHIS XXX!!

However, with l'hilomathean for a name, and Nil Desperandum for a motto they set sail upon the trackless ocean which lay before themfl The l-'hilomathean Society has never ceased to function from 1360 to the present time. llut' during the Civil Wfar period so many boys marched away from the campus of the Academy that the Oros became extinct. and the Philos would have done so. had not some of the ffirls entered the Philo ranks to keep the Society alive. In 1866, after the return of many of the boys from the war, some members of the Society separated from it and revived the extinct tlro organization. In the eighties some prominent names stand out-T. il. Van Horn. XV. D. Burdick, L. C. Randolph, and many more. In the last decade of the 19th century, and also in the years soon after 1900. very conspicuous on the Philo roll were such names as ti. T. Hurley, N. O. Moore. Arthur l'latts, li. D. Van l-lorn, Ray Rood, R. F. Johanson, D. N. Inglis. R. V. Hurley, il. L Skaggs, L. H. North, bl. N. Daland, L. ll. Stringer, W. D. Burdick. ti. H. Crandall, .Iohn Holmes. and many another. lfVeek after week at the close of sessions did the campus resound with the well-known yell: Amatum! Amare! Amavi! Amo! ,To Milton, to Milton, to Milton to go! Nil Desperandum! Philo! Philo! This year the llhilos decided that their room was badly in need of repairs. A committee headed by A. L. Pierce, the president, -loe IE. johnson. L. tl. Merrill and l'rofessor ul. N. Daland and Prof. L. l-l. Stringer was appointed to recommend the proper improvements to be made. The re-decorated room is the result of the recommendations of this committee. The walls have been tinted a soft brown and all woodwork includ- ing the floor, cleaned and revarnished. Two beautiful inverted electric light bowls supplant the former four-light chandelier. On either side of the stage is a twin candelabrum with gold silk candle shades. The alcoves on either side of the room are lighted by two ivory-tinted lanterns. Beside the piano is a Hoor lamp with a beautiful gold and purple silk shade. The lamp was given to the society by A. L. Pierce, NV. H. Moeller. L. G. Merrill, and Lester N. Dunwiddie. The shade was made by Mrs. A. S. Ruud, an aunt of Mr. Moeller. The feature decoration of the room. however, is the curtains. These con- sist of an underdrape of gold .lapan silk and an overdrape of purple velvet. These with the two leather seats built in the alcoves upon which are purple bolster pillows give the room a very homelike appearance. Miss Myrtelle lillis deserves the credit for the color scheme used in decorations and for making the curtains. She was assisted in the work by the Misses Gertrude Ciessler, 'losephine XVhitford. Myrtle Lewis, Vera Coon, Dorothy XMheeler, Ruth flurdick, Florence Huetten. Ruth Schlagenhauf. lfsther Loofboro. Mabel Babcock, Constance Bennett and Mizpah Bennett. I The Society is greatly indebted to former Philos and members ofthe faculty for help in financing the work. Uncle johnny flabcock made the leather seats, repaired furniture and the window casings.

Vivimus ut agamus, the tlro motto, is still lookecl upon as the true principle of life, and although the opportunity for service seems to be constantly changing. ancl clilterent for each generation, the motto, "We live that we may work," never alters the cluty of the true member of the lyceum.

This would not have been resented in the least if the Freshmen had been the loyal supporters of the organization, but this was not the case. Few of them took an active interest in the lyceum's affairs, and most of those who voted with the freshmen. came there solely for the purpose of "putting one over" on the older men. As a result, eighteen of the older fellows assembled and formed a new so- ciety called the Orophilian lyceum, which was really a new organization under an old name. Among those who were charter members were Albert Salisbury, C. E. Potter, T. A. Saunders, A. R. Crandall. and W'illis P. Clarke. Those'who formed the new society were, of course. criticised, and in order to justify the stand they had taken, an open session was held, which had for its object the vindication of the members of the new society. It proved to be a successful attempt. The orations which were given, to- gether with the readings and the musical selections, showed the real working interest which was taken in society work, and it was recognized in the Janesville paper as an entertainment of great merit. The tide was now turned in favor of the new organization. The follow- ing year it took in several new members, and although some of the older fel7 lows who had started it had graduated, the lyceum continued to prosper. The achievements of the Orophilian lyceum have been, as its name signi- fies, along the line of oratory and debating. This has been true at more recent periods also, as the lyceum has not lost an oratorical contest for the last seven years, nor a declamatory contest for live years. Following the Civil Wfar, many orations were carefully prepared and given in the lyceums, upon subjects of reconstruction. Many men who have since become widely recognized by the public, gained their ability to address an audi- ence in these meetings. The debates often raged for hours, and music was not entirely omitted from the programs. One custom in these days was the "open session,'l to which all the towns- people as well as the college students were invited and at which a special effort was made to give the people something of value. Great interest was taken in these meetings and the public attended with curiosity. Rivalry between the three organizations, aided in making the lyceums keep up a high standard. Grad- ually the joint session has been superseded by other commencement activities. until at present it is given over to the enthusiasm of the alumni, and although a meeting of the four lyceums is always held the Saturday night before com- mencement week, the elaborate programs which have been arranged in former years are discontinued. Among the men who have attained distinction partly because of training and vision gaining in working for the lyceum, are Dr. Cleo. XV. Post, who has practiced successfully in Chicago for many yearsg also his son George, who has already made a name for himself in surgery. Dr. Samuel l'lantz, President of Lawrence College, who was here in school in l876, and was historian of the ly- ceum at that time, Prof. J. N. l-lumphry of XfVhitewater Normal School, Dr. O. E. Larkin of Chicago, Dr. lf. S. Bailey also of Chicago. Dr. Bailey has been in Milton for commencement a great many times, and is one of Milton's most loyal alumni. Atvarious times in the history of the school, entertainments have been XXIII SQEWXXXI Page Sixty-eight W V iv rlI.'sf+s+f1i'f ,lig1fff'.tl1-in W W' W 441 f??l.ili? g'1fM 'iwii-1s.h. fp-1' F, H1545 Zy1:..,,., ,z,., fill Q Q 54.

One of the most notable of these achievements was the "Murder Trial of ,lennie Brycefl This was not a play but a mock trial which was very well executed indeed. The Oros invited the Miltonians to join them in "putting it across." A mystery story was pub- lished by lfverybody's lVlag'azine. and the last chapter left unpublished. A prize of S100 was offered for the best solution of the story. such solution to be worked out in the form of a trial of the nnn'derer. by some organization. The solution was then to be written up and the trial photographed, then sent in to the publishers. Mr. A. li. Ciarey of Edgerton, and Mr. li. A. Babcock of Mil- ton were influential in pushing the project to success. A photograph of the trial hangs in the newly decorated Oro room, in the lVhitford Memorial l'-lall. Contestants from all over the United States competed, as it was a nation-wide contest. The prize money was divided between the two lyceums. During the present season, the lyceum has had some very interesting ses- sions. and the debaters which represent the college have practiced their art upon the Oro platform. The annual Orophilian Banquet is always a prominent event in the social life of the Oro, and this year more than sixty, enjoyed the festive occasion. The Orophilian roll has the names of twenty-two college students upon it, and several of the boys from the town have kept up their interest in the work of the society. Wfatch the Orophilians and help them grow. "There's Nothing Too Good For The Orosfl May the Society long continue its career of useful service!

XHHEHISR WMEHE Page Seventy-thrcc CBS THE Y. M. C. A. OF MILTON COLLEGE The Young' Men's Christian Association of Milton College was organized in 1907. bv interested members of a former society called the Milton College Christian .iXssociation. Its purpose, as expressed in the constitution which they adopted, was that of "promoting growth in grace and Christian fellowship among' its members, and ag'g'ressive Christian work especially by and for students." The older Association carried on much the same work which is carried on by the present one: there were the regular Tuesday evening meetings and the Friday evening' meetings in the llavis room the same as now. However, it was decided that it would be advantageous to ally themselves with the State and Interna- tional Associations and receive the benetits of co-operation with those Associa- tions. Mr. 17. li. Anderson, State Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., was invited to visit the College and to help draft a constitution. Those who helped in organ- izing the Association were Alton tl. Churchward, l.eman H. Stringer, Harold Ci. Ingham, Wilbur F. Stewart, R. Vernon llurley, Claude D. Stillman, Lester T. Hull, and L. Harry North. This new Association showed its enthusiasm in january of 1908, when four men were sent to Appleton, to attend a Y. M. C, A. convention there, and again in l909, when l'. l.. Coon and NV. M. Simpson were sent to the convention at XVausau, XN'is., and l.. 'l'. llull was sent to Lake Geneva. It seems as though no distance could daunt them for they were represented by two men, ll. l.. l'olan and ll. l'. Ingham, at the convention of the International Volunteer Move- ment held at Rochester, N. Y. ln 1911 the "Y" took a special interest in mis- sionary work in China and a sum of money was raised and given to be applied on the salary of Miss .Xnna Xllest who went to China as a missionary after grad- uating' from Milton. llowever, the did not forget its home interests for the next year a room was rented, furnished and maintained as a reading' room for the men of the College. lt is interesting' to note that in l9l6 thirteen men represented Milton at the Lake Geneva convention. l.ast year the Y. M. C. .-X. reorganized and adopted a new and more up-to- date constitution. Since then a more enthusiastic interest has been showin in the meetings and work of the .-Xssociation. .X room in the basement of the main building' has been Iitted up and decorated for use as a "Y" room. This room was made attractive with curtains, rugs, pictures of former athletic teams, books. and a ping'-pond table. ln November, l9l9. blames Shiba was sent to Detroit to attend the International Y.

While there is much room for improvement the "YH at Milton is not dead, but is exercising an influence for good which is felt every day upon the campus. Let us all do our share in making our "Y" increase in strength and in social and spiritual influence in the future. Neal D. Mills, '21.

West is assistant principal of the G1'ace School for Girls of the Seventh Day Baptist Mission at Shanghai, China. During Miss Burdick's visit at home she assumes the duties of principal. Her sister is taking some of the teaching of the English classes which Miss Burdick had had. The school at present is doing work which corresponds for the most part to that done in our lilementary Schools at home. However, the High School has been started and 'we are hoping that it will soon be possible to give the full course. There are nearly fifty girls in school this semester, most of whom live here in the school. Three Chinese young ladies teach in the school and help in mothering the girls and seeing that they are properly cared forg but even then the principal is called upon every day and sometimes many times a day to advise about this thing or that and to administer punishment occasionally. and medicine, more often. She must take them to the near-by hospital for treat- ment or foroperations such as removing of tonsils or lancing of felon thumbs. It is easily seen that one's work as principal is never done. liven meal times are used for consultation. . The Chinese language itself, and the Classics are taught by three men teach- ers, who give part time only. The Geography, Physiology, Arithmetic. and Bible taught in Chinese are given by the three young ladies and the subjects in English, such as the English Reading, Grammar, linglish lflhysiology, lfnglish Bible, and Literature are taught by the foreign teachers. Mrs. .lfugene Davis has charge of the music, both the singing and instrumental, but is assisted by the Chinese in the singing. Besides the regular school work in connection with the boarding school, Miss Wfest has to supervise the City Day School, which for years has been car- ried on under the direction of the Girls' Boarding School. She goes into the Native City once a week to examine the work done there and oniSabbath morn- ing she goes in to take charge of the Sabbath School. as she is now the Super- intendent. She is also Assistant Superintendent of the Sabbath School which meets here in the afternoon. This does not include all of the work falling upon the present pi-imiptfl of the graded school for girls, but it gives you an idea that the duties are far from few. There is the Community Church with which one likes to be identitied, the Shanghai Missionary Association which meets once a month and has Hts weekly prayer meeting every Monday afternoon at tive o'clock. and the liduca- tional Association. All of these broaden onc's interest and help to make her more useful. IIIIBIS XXIII Page Seventy-eight J. V ff. if 'eve ff-" ' "1 , i27f.i0i 'tim-ie.9. Q Q W Q fl ' -.

Much of this has been for exportg so from the very beginning of the war these cities have suffered greatly because there has been so little work. ln the city of Plauen, with a popu- lation of 105.000, there are 7,000 men. 5.000 women, and 8.000 children dependent on them. who have to bc paid by the city because they are out of work.

A Christmas Gift From America For Oelsnitz Land From .Iournal-Telephone. Feb. 17. 1921 Friends in America were making a gift of 3570.-to help where needed here in Germany. Another. hearing of this, wished to make his contribution by making the total gift S100- lhe following is the story of the good cheer brought about by this additional gift. The letter containing this money arrived the week before Christmas. Immediately l telephoned to the government office in Oelsnitz Land, saying that if their welfare workers t'0uld spend 2000 marks for clothing for the needy children before Christmas l would bring the money on any day that they would appoint. l knew personally the welfare work- Crs there and could trust them to spend the money wisely. There was no question in re- Hfllghto the need because l had seen the children many times and noticed their insufficient C 0 nng. The Thursday before Christmas 1 arrived in Oelsnitz about 10 o'elock in the morning. At the station I was met by a real "Christmasy" sleigh. The two seats which faced each other were piled high with packages, scarcely leaving room for Frl. Lippold and Frl. Pet- zold, the two welfare workers and myself. Mr. Frotseher. one of the secretaries who has charge of our feeding work in this district sat on the footman's seat behind with his feet in fur bags for protection from the cold. A youthful-looking coachman sat up on the high scat in front and drove the two fine-looking horses. They put me in one fur sack and covered us all with a fur robe. Our way led us through evergreen forests. ice-covered mountain-streams, snow-covered helds. and small villages. The children everywhere were coasting and skating and en- joying their holidays. Our hrst visit was in Dechengrucn. Here in a small cottage lived a family in which there were ten children under 15 years of age. The youngest was eight days old and yet the mother was up attending to her household duties and evidently doing some baking.

A child of two, with a very evident case of rachitis, played about on the floor. The father had been out of work for some time but was employed during the few weeks before the holi- days. Our package contained warm cloth and thread for making underclothes, wool for knitting, thread, and a sweater for the children, and milk for the mother. Mr. Frotscher had thoughtfully brought along a sack of Christmas cakes for the children. After giving one of these to each of the children and receiving the thanks of the mother we departed. We drove on further to Bobneukirchen. Here we found a family consisting of a mother with tuberculosis of the bones, and two little girls of 9 and ll. The mother sat all day in her one place on the couch, so ci'ippled that she could not even use her hands to knit or sew. The two little girls were the housekeepers. They were eating their midday meal which consisted of herring. One small herring had to do for two meals for the three of them. The father was killed in the war. Kind neighbors give them what help they can. Our package for them contained cloth for underclothes for the girls which the neighbors will make and a pair of stockings as well as milk for the mother. When they saw the stockings, the mother told us that the girls had knitted the night before until ll o'clock by the light of a very small oil lamp, in order that they might have the needed stockings. The mother could not keep the tears back as she saw the gifts and the two girls stood looking at their mother, wondering why she was crying. We were especially impressed by the sweet uncomplaining mother and the sweet faces of the two girls. We asked the girls to come out doors and have their pictures taken with their Christmas cakes in their hands. In the house they went around in their stocking feet and so they had to put on their wooden sandals when they went outside. One sandal, however, was broken, so one child was obliged to put on a makeshift pair of shoes. As we went out we saw where the two girls slept. lt was at the head of the stairway in an open ball. The mother slept in the one room which served as kitchen, bedroom and living room combined. Our next visit was at a home where the father had tuberculosis of the lungs. The mother had gone to Plauen to return to work which sl1e had been doing. She mended de- fective lace for one of the factories. Later we met her coming home and asked her about her work. She said that there was a strike in the factory, so she had none. Only the father and a child of ten were at home. In the corner of the room was a bird cage con- taining a dove, said to drive away sickness. The house consisted of a low damp bed room and this living room which the father evidently used as a shop for what little work he could do. Here was a sled partly made. We left them some cloth for underclothes and milk and fat for the sick father. ln a house near by we found a boy of 21 years of age lying unconscious on the bed in the corner of the room. He, too, was sick with tuberculosis and would probably not live many days. The poor old mother and a strong looking grown-up son were sitting at the table eating their midday meal of potatoes when we entered. The short time that we were there the tears streamed down their faces, so that they could neither eat nor talk. We saw that there was nothing to be done for the poor boy and were about to leave when we learned that the mother, herself, had been sick for two weeks. So we gave the milk to her and departed, leaving them alone in their sorrow. It was now time for us to have our dinner, which consisted of a meat stew and pota- toes and pickles, prepared for us at the restaurant. While here, the secretary and the welfare workers told me about how the money had been spent. The night before, they and friends had worked until midnight with great joy preparing some 45 packages to be dis- tributed throughout the district. The Oelsnitz district government had added some M3200. -to the gift from America and the Amerikahilfe, an organization which gets its funds from America, had given 240 cans of condensed milk and 33 pounds of chocolate. The money was spent approximately as follows: ' - 69 yards of warm material for underwear at l9c yard ,--- .,,,, 313,11 58 yards of white material for underclothes at Zlc yard --- ,U 12,18 Stockings, sweaters, wool, thread, etc. .................... --- 24,70 Gray cloth for underwear and cloth for bed linen ..........,.....,,,,, ,,,,,,,, - H 29,07 Four complete sets of bed linen ..............................,..,,,,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, 1 2,92 To the welfare centers in the following cities: Oelsnitz, Adorf, Markneukirehen, and Sehoeneck .............................................. ,.,,,..,,,,,,,,,,, 8 ,02 Total ....--.-------------------------.--.................................. .... S 100.00 For the most part the money that a family receives from the earnings of the father tM lo0-M 250 per weekj 353.00 to 84.75 is barely enough to pay for food, rent, heat and light. There is nothing left over for clothes and bed linen. For the past 6 years the fam- XXXXX QQ YXXXX Page Eighty XIX XXX ilies have done their best with the stock of clothing and linen which they had on hand. But now this is entirely exhausted and they have nothing left. ln some cases there is no bed linen and the children have not even one suit of underclothes. while in countless cases each member of the family has only one set of underclothes and must really go to bed while these are being washed. lf a child is too young to go to school, shoes and some- times stockings are luxuries which cannot be afforded. Many a child shares with his brother one pair of shoes and stockings. The material which we gave them for bed linen was colored, as it is much more practical under the existing conditions. After dinner we visited a family where there were eight children, the youngest being a little over a year. The dwelling consisted of two rooms, a living room, where the stove was and a neat airy bed room containing four single beds side by side and almost com- pletely filling the room. As we entered the living room we noticed a wooden tub of water beside the stove and back of the stove a girl of 10 drying herself after her bath. Her protruding shoulder blades and thin arms and legs showed that she was in need of bet- ter feeding. Our gifts here were much the same as in the other places with the exception that for the girl of 14 who was finishing school in April we had white cloth for under- clothes. It was no thin, fine material, however, but heavy, firm muslin. When the child of three saw the chocolate that we had for them he did not know what it was. But the baby grabbed eagerly his Cln'istmas cake and started eating it. The other children saved theirs for their father to see. The father was out of work and had been for some time. Our next two visits were at the home of old people. One man lived all alone and in another house lived two people, S7 and 90 years old. The woman had bad sores on her face and sat on a stove shelf to keep warm. The man lay covered up in bed and was un- conscious of our visit. From there we went on to a home of another family with many children. The mother was sick in bed. One of the elder daughters was at home with her year old baby to help look after the mother and family. A sweet child of 12 years was busy all the time we were there washing dishes and putting the cupboards in order. The good upholstered chairs which they brought us from the loft told of the better times that the family had known. A small boy had a bandage around his head which was swollen and sore from scrofula . We left the children sitting around the table looking at their Christmas cakes. From there on our way lay through woods covered deep with snow. The whole forest seemed enchanted and was like thousands of silver bedecked Christmas trees. Down in the valley the trees were still green, but here we were in a veritable snowy fairy land. lt was as though the forest had prepared itself for this, our first Christmas celebration. From the welfare workers in Oelsnitz Land and the many persons made happy by the gifts go thanks to the friends in America who made this day possible. . MIRIAM E. WEST.

The annual concerts of her orchestra and of her Choral Union are attended by people from all parts of Southern Wfisconsin, and her Glee Club has enthusiastic admirers, not only in VVisconsin, but also in Illinois and Michigan, where it has travelled on concert tours. The School of Music offers courses in vocal culture, instrumental playing. and the theoretical branches. The faculty is comprised of Miss Alberta Cran- dall, who teaches l'i'anoforte, History of Music, T-Tarmony and Theory: Miss Goldie Davis, violin: Professor L. H. Stringer, voice culture: and President Daland, cello and organ. Arrangements can be made for instruction on other instruments, should anyone desire it. Because of poor health, Miss Crandall was forced to give up her work near the end of the first semester. She went to California, but secured Miss Beth Bingham to take charge of her classes while she was gone. She expects to be back at work again in the fall. The trustees voted last summer to give credit toward graduation for work done in music. This step is greatly appreciated by many who wished to study music but were unable to carry it along with their full school work. Certilicates of graduation from the School of Music are given to those who finish the re- quired amount of theoretical and technical study in vocal or instrumental courses. This year Miss Ruth Schlagenhauf is the only graduate, and she tin- ishes the course in Pianoforte. Practical work in almost any line of music is made possible by the sev- eral musical organizations on the campus. These include the Symphony Or- chestra. the college band, the Choral Union, the 1l'lCIl,S Glee Club, and the girls' Treble Clef. One credit is given for two years' faithful work in any one of these organizations. People throughout the surrounding country take advantage of the line music teachers in the college. so that a large number of the music students are young people outside of the college. Thus tthe intiuence of the School of Music is far-reaching. It is doubtful whether there can be found anywhere a college and community who in proportion to their size are doing such big things in music. No doubt this love of music is one of the greatest factors in the mak- ing of that atmosphere of culture which pervades Milton.

Once a week about thirty young people meet in the Davis room and under the direction of Professor Stringer learn the rndiments of vocal music. The main object of Uhe course is to train one to read music readily. The sounds produced the first few nights would, by the fastidious, scarcely be recognized as music, but week by week harmony creeps in until it could be mistaken by no one. The class is conducted in such a way that the learning is not irksome, but really a pleasure. This course has 'helped to make many a young person eligible for the T1'eble Clef or the Glee Club. The class roll consists of: Lilian Babcock, Charlotte Babcock, Elaine Ballard, Clarice Bennett, Leona Chadscy, Myrl Davis, Lester Dunwiddie, Mona Dunwell, Frances Ellis, Ruby Ferguson, Claude Grant, Edna Green, Alice Holmes, Esther Jennings, Ruth Jennings, Hobart Kelly, Charlotte Maxson, Leon I.

A A A. gli at M .im A The Choral Union HE Cl-IORAI. UNION is one of the oldest organizations of the college. It's membership comprises not only college students, but musicians from the village and surrounding country as well. This season there were about one hundred twenty-five names on the roll, making' one of the largest choruses in its history. The Choral Union is excellently conducted by llrofessor Stringer, and is usually accompanied by a portion of the college orchestra. Each year. usually just before the Christmas recess, a concert is given. This year the whole evening was given to the presentation of I-landel's "Messiah," A few of the choruses were omitted and the solos were done by professional singers who came out from Chicago. Nevertheless, it was a great undertaking and its successful accomplishment was very highly commended by those who listened to the performance. many of whom had come a considerable distance. Although the audience was unanimous in its enjoyment of the oratorio, it was the chorus who got the most pleasure out of it. Such masterpieces must be studied to be appreciated to the fullest extentg so t'he more one sings it the better he likes it and the more 'he gets out of it. The experience of singing in the Choral Union is worth many times the dollar membership dues. Handel's Messiah EORGE Frederic Handel was very much interested in opera, but unfor- tunately his operas were not very successful. In order to replace his lost fortune and to regain a bit of his lost popularity he turned to oratorios. These were tolerated by the public enough to keep t'he wolf from his door. At the age ofiifty-six a wonderful inspiration came to him-a vast grand idea and the immortal work, "The Messiahj, was prepared. In twenty-two days during August and September of 1741 the whole gigantic score was written, the orchestration being completed in the next two days following. During the following spring, Handel, still unpopular in London, visited the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, the Duke of Devonshire. The Duke, expressing a wish to raise money for charity, I-Iandel brought forth.his "Messiah" and offered to p1'oduce it for the benefit of charity in music loving Dublin. .The journal advertising this event requested, "That ladies who honor this per- formance with their presence will be pleased to come without hoops and the gentlemen without swords as it will greatly increase t'he charity by making room for more company." They seated 700 instead of 600 through the com- pliance of the audience with this request. The performance was gloriously successful. This is what Faulkner's journal printed about it: "The best judges allowed it to be the most finished piece of musick. Xafords are wanting to express the exquisite delight it afforded the admiring crowded audience. The sublime, the grand, the tender adapted to the most elevated, majestick HHH!!!

I-Iandel's masterpiece had received its full and instant appreciation. A total of 351,000 was received from all the performances, doubtless the largest amount contributed to charity by any wtork of art. The oratorio was sung in Dublin by fourteen men and six boys, hardly adequate it seems to us, who think large choruses of one hundred to a thou- sand are necessary for its performance. XfVhen Lord Kinnoul complimented Handel over the Messiah, saying that it provided a "noble entertainment," Handel answered tartly. "My Lord. I should be sorry if I only entertained them. I wish to make them better." The original score was left to the gov- ernor of the Foundling Hospital as a precious gift. During the presentation in London the custom of standing during the hlflallelujah Chorusn was originated. The audience was so deeply moved by the preceding songs that when the chorus began "For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth," the king .and the audience rose at once to their feet and stood rever- ently until the singing ceased. It is still the custom for. the audience to stand during this chorus. VV'hat is the theme of the Messiah and what is the construction, and its excellence from a musical point of view? The words of the "Messiah" are taken in toto from the Bible. literal words from the Old and New Testaments of the holy scriptures. There is nothing dramatic about the "Messiah." A great genius 'has given "enduring popularity to an entirely contemplative work." "It is the expression of a manly, frank, honest, emotional, devout soul engaged in contemplation of the greatest subject which can occupy the heart of man." The style is that of the true oratorio, dignified, simple, noble without affecta- tion, At t'he same time, the tunes are gloriously united with their text, for Handel understood the perfect interpretation of poetry by music. The score is divided into two parts, the First including the prophecies of the Messiah's birth and the announcements of his immediate birth. You will 'hear at first from the orchestra a few short grave chords. abrupt. as though to arrest your attention, and then a fugal movement to complete the overture. Into the solemn anticipation thus engendered steals the tenor recitative and air "Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God." expres- sive of the tender compassion of the inhnite for an erring world. Inspired to new confidence, t'he people cry that now, "Every valley shall be exalted," an air also sung by the tenor soloist. Then follows the chorus expressing the hope that comes from the promise of the Lord, "And the Glory of t'he Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together! For the mouth of .t'he Lord hath spoken it." A Following two bass airs expressive of mankind's awe and unworthiness of the supreme one is a chorus of blessed assurance in God's mercy. Now begins the story of the nativity in which we sing of the reception of the announce- ment of the birth in the sweet melody and chorus, "O Thou that tellest good tidings to Zion, say unto the cities of judah, Behold your God. The glory of the Lord is risen upon Thee. Behold the glory of the Lord." The climax of Part One is in the impressive chorus, "For unto us a child is born. unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon llis shoulder and 'His name shall be called W'onderful.

H. Stringer, the first girls' Glee Club of Milton College, or what is known 'as the Treble Clef. Rehearsals began at once and the Treble Clef' made its first appearance at Commencement. The next year the club was enlarged to a membership of sixteen girls and continued its work under the leadership of Miss Alberta Crandall, who has 'since held the position of Director. ln the spring of l915, the first Treble Clef concert was given. which proved to be a decided success. Since that time much interest has been shown in the work and the organi- zation 'has thrived, giving successful concerts each year, and ranking with the best won1en's Cilee Clubs of the state. In the fall of the year 1919 the club was again enlarged and at present thirty-two girls have membership in the club. The success ,of the Treble Clef is due in a large measure, to Miss Crandall. who cannot be praised too highly for her untiring efforts to make the club a success and to maintain a high standard of musical excellence and appreciation. This year. as usual, the Treble Clef was planning to give a concert, but wfhen Miss Crandall was obliged to leave and was unable to secure anyone to direct the girls during her absence, the rehearsals were suspended for several months. However, after the filee Club concerts were over Professor Stringer took up the work in order that the Treble Clef might do its usual bit at Commencement time. FIRST SOPR.-XNO-:Xuclree Babcock.

'I'. C. was there another on the campus. In the eventful year of 1918 Mr. .loe johnson organized a student hand which has continued until the present, and in its few years of practice has great- ly improved. The band is especially prominent during' the basketball season, for it plays at all of the intercollegiate games and during' the tournament. Its peppy music adds a great deal to the college spirit and allows no one to lose his enthusiasm. At any occasion in which a hand is desired there is always a good one ready to step tn and please everyone with its lively airs. Ct BRN ICT: bl. li. johnson C. ll. Arrington C. D. Newman XV. IX.

In contrast follows in a spirit of tranquillity the wonderful pastoral sym- phony. It is based upon a simple little tune which Handel remembered of hearing in his youth at Christmas time upon the streets of Rome. Some subtle quality puts 'before us the peaceful hillsides about Bethlehem. We know that it is night and that the shepherds watch over the flocks which lie sleeping about them. The sapphire sky is thickly studded with the stars which shine in daz- zling brilliance. Poor old George III describing this symphony said, "I could see the stars shiningthrough it," A series of graphic recitatives tell of the announcement of Christ's birth to the shepherds and a celestial choir sings the great doxology--"Glory to God in the highest and peace on ea1'th, good will towards men." In Part Two occur the three finest choruses Handel ever wrote. One opens the second part, thatsolemn chorus, "Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world." "He was despised and rejected of men" is a con- tralto solo descriptive of the rejection of .our Lord by mankind. over the com- position of which Handel was found in tears. It has many times moved large audiences to tears. The chorus sings, "All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned everyone to his own way and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all," the last two lines forming a lovely closing adagio. The resurrection is presented in a soprano air and the magniticent chorus, "Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lifted up ye everlasting doors, and the King of Glory shall come in. XfVho is the King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, The Lord mighty in battle." The chorus, "Let all the Angels of God worship Him" and the arias, "How beautiful are the feet" and "VVhy do the Nations," and the chorus, "Let us break their bands asunder" appear of pale interest when compared with that which follows them-the "I-Ialleluj-ah Chorus," whose tremendous grandeur and sublimity it is impossible to describe. To hear it is to. feel what Handel felt while composing this greatest of all choruses. "I did think I saw all Heaven before me and the great God Himself." "F or the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth The kingdom of the world is become The kingdom of our Lord and of I-Iis Christ, And I-Ie shall reign forever and ever King of Kings and Lord of Lords." The short third part is a credo as it were, a declaration of belief in the life of Christ, 'his death, resurrection and the surety of eternal life. It is expressed in these words, . "Since by man came death By man also came the resurrection of the dead For as in Adam all die Q Even so in Christ shall all be made alive." The last chorus, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain and has redeemed us to God by His blood, to receive power and riches and wisdom and honour and glory and blessing for ever and ever," this chorus with the final dignified "Amen" are an exaltation of sound in wfhich all creation seems to join the angels about the throne of God. HEHHBl92l.EmEHI?3 Page Ninety-two v v W W A A A A GLEE CLU THE GLEE CLUB TOUR Hur College tllee Club set out on their eighth animal tour March 23, the lirst day of spring recess, when they gave their concert at Beloit, XVis. fl're- vious to this they gave their entertainment at Albion on 'February 26, and at Rock l"rairie. March 21. These two concerts, however. were more or less in the nature of practices, to help wear off the greenness usually shown at initial performances and to aid in rounding the club into good form before their big trip to Michigan. At Beloit the concert was well received by a large and appreciative audience of music lovers. Beloit presented listeners who were music critics, and it speaks well for the club to learn that those people were well pleased with the singing. Owing to the postponement of the Delavan concert, which was to have fol- lowed the next evening, the. boys took a rest Thursday, and then set out for Bat- tle Creek, Michigan on Friday morning, March 25. They spent an hour or so about noon that day trotting through Chicago in the rain, but- arrived safe at Battle Creek shortly before live o'clock Friday evening. Here they were wel- comed and taken care of by their respective hosts. That evening two short programs were given. The tirst was at Uhe Sani- tarium song service and the second :at the Christian 'lindeavor meeting in Col- lege Chapel near the Sanitarium. liveryone welcomed a good night's rest after the long journey on the train. The next morning found the boys up bright and early, for the rain and clouds of the previous day faded away and real spring sunshine urged everyone to respond. The Glee Club and quartet furnished the music for the Seventh Day liaptist church services in the Sanitarium, and on Saturday night, March 26, the regular concert was given in the big "San" gymnasium. Over twelve hundred people heard this program, and judging from their comments and ap- plause the concert was ra decided success. Sunday, March 27, was llaster. and the Glee Club gave a sacred concert in the iylethodist church in the afternoon and at the ,l"resbyterian church in the evening. The evening singing was attended by a very large audience, the oh-urch being packed to standing room. This concluded the club's appearances in Bat- tle Creek. A rough and conservative estimate shows that about three thousand people heard our Glee Club sing during their two days and three evenings in that city. .lfveryone reported a most enjoyable time, and it was a reluctant bunch that left Hattie Creek early Monday morning. During the visit in .Hattie Creek it seemed as if the people of that city spared no means to make the stay a pleasant one and every fellow on the club will always remember this happy visit. espec- A A A A K A A A A A Page Ninety-three 7 v W .il.-fmt-his W W V :fi 'ifmzm '1 f, -:- w, . 5.1, A A A ftffliititt . A A A ially those who met some of liattle Creek's beautiful and entertaining maidens. On the return trip the boys spent half of the afternoon in Chicago, some doing shopping and others going out sight-seeing. Monday evening found the club ready for action in Harvard, lllinois. Here they gave their regular con- cert at the l'resbyterian church, and although comparatively there was a small audience, tfhe concert was a success. Tuesday afternoon, March 29. the club moved northward to Capron, Ill.. for the last concert of the trip. Here they sang at the high school auditorium to abottt two .hundred people, another small but :appreciative audience. Lake Geneva was to have been visited the next night. but they had a smallpox quar- antine there which necessitated the cancellation of our concert. So on Wednes- day the tilee Club, tired but happy. returned to Milton, to resume their school work on the day that school opened after the one week's spring recess. After their long trip' to Michigan the tllee Club boys did not stop enter- taining music lovers, for several concerts followed. The lirst of these was the program given at Wfhitewater on Monday, April 4. The jaunt to the Quaker City was made in cars that evening, so no college classes were missed by the songsters. The concert was given at the Congregational church to one of the elub's largest audiences. ' Two days later they gave their :annual home concert. This is wthat the "Milton College Review" has to say about the program held here in the college gymnasium: 'fXVith what great pleasure every one looks forward to tthe tllee Club's home concert! Last Wednesday night expectation finally changed to realization and our much travelled singers appeared before a large audience made up of ador- ing families. fellow students and appreciative townspeople, and-- 'Lives there a man who has the cheek To say our tilce Club can be beat l'erhaps tihis year's program had a larger ntnnber of seniors and sentimental songs than usuial, but still it did not lack pep. The fact that with very few ex- ceptions the entire program was new is a great point in the club's favor. The solos by Professor Stringer and Floyd Ferrill were unanimously applauded. l'rofessor Stringer's singing needs no comment and we don't dare say all we think about Shorty's, because we hate to make him conceited. james Shiba's speech was received with as much appreciation as anyone could wish and the quartette greatly disappointed their audience by refusing a second encore. They must Ihave run out of limericks. It is just as well that the dramatic sketch had no spoken parts for how could they have been heard above all the laughter? And, girls, surely if any mere man can be such a pretty girl as Carroll Hill made. there is no need for you to be discouraged. The tilee Club is certainly a fine representative of what Milton College can send out." Fort Atkinson was visited Monday. April ll, this trip being made in cars that afternoon. A twenty minute program entertained the high school stu- dents in the afternoon, and the regular concert at the Metliodist church that evening was heard by the most appreciative audience yet met on any of the trips. The club gave the postponed Delavtan concert on X'Vednesday, April 13, at XIIXEIQQ KXXXI Page Ninety-four 4 V .- M' jd- 5. . . gf- .. r E 5 -' ,Z 3 ,K Q Q A r I Back Row-Prof. W. D. Burdick, M. F.

The singers made even a better impression than they did there last year when a good repu- tation was established. The linal regular concert of the season was given at Milton Junction the following evening, April 14. Tfhere the Methodist church was quite well Filled, and many people who heard the home concert rambled over to the -lunction to hear the boys again. This closed one of the most successful seasons in the history of tthe Milton College Glee Club. The boys brought much credit. both to themselves and our College, and all had a good time while doing this. Bach member of the club will hold only the most pleas-ant memories of this season's experiences and everyone can look back with pride at the work of the Glee Club ol' 1921.

For the last three vears l'resident Daland has taken charge of the orchestra. He is intensely interested in the work and under his leadership the membership has increased to fifty and the quality of the music attempted has greatly im- proved. lt is now a symphony orchestra and at each of its concerts, which are given once and sometimes twice a season. the chief number on the program is a symphony. President Daland had planned to give two concerts this season, hut gave up the first one in order that he might drill a portion of the orchestra to ac- company the Choral Union in its presentation of the "Messiah" The regular Symphony Concert was given on March 17, and in this the orchestra was assist- ed hy Mrs. XVilna Soverhill Arthur of Alanesville. violinist, and hy Mrs. Mahelle XVilson Shearer of lidgerton, reader. The proceeds from concerts have en- ahled the orchestra to purchase a horn. two hass viols, two kettle drums, and a hassoon. Later in the spring the orchestra played at one of the sessions of the State Music Teachers' Convention in -Ianesville. lt is douhtful whether anyone fully realizes the immensity of the task which President llaland has taken upon himselfg that of leading such a large company of amateurs into a worthy rendering of a symphony. lle is doing a great work for the community. Not having any professional players to depend upon for the less familiar instruments, the symphony orchestra has during the three seasons of its hrief history confined its study to symphonies hy llaydn, the father of symphonic composition, although there is some hope that next year the orchestra may at- tempt a symphony hy Beethoven. l'laydn's compositions. hecause of their clarity and the natural progression of their harmonies. are the hest for the education and training of non-profes- sional players. Thus far the orchestra has played in puhlic live of llaydn's symphonies: the second, sixth, eleventh, and twelfth, in the last two vears, and this year the thirteenth.

In others of his symphonies one is often led to admire one movement more than another, or to say of some one of the four movements that it is tiresome or commonplace. XVith this composition it is not so. T'he Hrst and last movements corres- pond in rhythm and construction and yet each exhibits wonderful variety in the way the themes are worked out. The last movement especially is very delicate and charms the hearer hy its rare beauty. It contains an ingenious two-part canon and exhibits remarkable contrasts in the instrumentation. The minuet is exceedingly graceful and the slow second movement is one of the most beauti- ful airs the composer ever conceived. Those who heard this symphony on March 17th will testify to the pleasure they felt in listening to this work, which was a favorite of the late Theodore Thomas.

The Library has always been the centre of the studious activities of the col- lege. From very small beginnings it has grown to be a veritable beehive of industry and a treasure-house of knowledge. The Rev. Daniel Babcock. a retired Seventh-day Baptist minister, at his death in 1868 left the sum of one thousand dollars and his private library to Mil- ton College. This collection was known for many years as the "Daniel Babcock Library" and formed the basis of the present library of over ten thousand vol- umes. There were three other small and separate libraries maintained by the literary societies, known as the Philomathean, Orophilian, and lduna Libraries. Later, probably about the year 1898. all these collections were united, and Profes- sor lidwin Shaw, also teacher of Latin and chemistry, was appointed as librar- ian. Professor Shaw was greatly interested in the development of the Library and acted as Librarian till 1908. lsle was succeeded in this position by Miss May B. Smith, who was Librarian from 1908 to 1910. ln 1910 Miss Mabel Max- son, who is a great-granddaughter of Daniel Babcock, while yet a senior in col- lege, was made Librarian. This position she has since held and has carried on the work with the aid of student assistants. lVhen the original libraries were consolidated the books were cared for in the room in the Main Building now known as the Polly Goodrich Room. ln 1906 the Library was moved into the commodious room now used, which was iitted up under the direction of Professor Shaw. in the XVhitford Memorial Hall. After her graduation Miss Maxson spent a summer in the Library School of the University of Iowa and a year in the University of lllisconsin. During the years 1912 to 1914 she accomplished the enormous task of re-cataloguing the entire library which is now the literary workshop of the college and also serves as a public library for the people of Milton and vicinity. lilither the freshmen, their themes all gory with red ink from Prexy's cruel pen, come to consult Newcomer or Woolley. Here the sophomores and juniors turn to the pages of the Readers' Guide. in quest of treasure trove for orations. The seniors enter the room with an air of conscious superiority, for soon their names will appear in the card catalogue and on the shelves will stand their theses. Of the reading of books there is no end: Reference books, stern and forbidding, constantly bullying the timid reader with the ominous words, "Re- turn me by 823011, fiction and current magazines with a sly wink enticing the stu- dent to forsake his studies: histories. books of portly mien stuffed with dates.- jostling each other. all these line the shelves of our Library.

Chang During the four years of the Great War, we had heard about the battle of the Marne in which England and France hand in hand joined their forces and put the invading Ger- mans into retreat. We had learned about the long and tedious fightings in Verdun and Somme in which the combined forces of the Allies recovered the lost land of France and drove the Germans back eastward. Likewise we read about the story of Liege and we ad- mired the strategic genius and bravery of the famous Belgian mathematician, General Lc- mall, who with a handful of Belgian soldiers, defended the city of Liege, and thus checked the rapid advance of the German troops. And we know only too well with what bravery and self-sacrifice did the American boys fight for the freedom and democracy of the world. Many a story of hardship and heroism is familiar to us which commands our admiration and is worthy of it. Moreover, we all know that as a consequence of the war, millions and millions of young men of the Allied nations sacrificed their lives in the trenches in order that the world might hve-live under the flag of democracy and freedom, but not under the domination of the junkerism of Prussia. Behold, what a scene of desolation in the little kingdom of Belgium! There are ruins of once splendid cities and in the streets of Brussels and Antwerp you will not fail to find mothers whose sons are buried .in the dust and blood on the battlefield, and sweethearts whose young men are never to return. Many an American mother's heart is still with her son or sons in the French cemetery on the other side of the sea. With these heroic deeds of nations in view. you may justly ask what has China done when you heard China propose her claims in the Peace Conference. China and the War At the outbreak of the war China stood in the ranks of neutral nations. A few months later, as the war went on, China tried to join hand with the Allies and offered to do the little she could for the cause of right and liberty, but was prevented from doing so by her neighbor, a nation supposed to be one of the Allies. And in the year 1917, and in the ears following China had her hands full with lapanese diplomats and diplomatic prob- lems as well as her own civil troubles, Yet in spite of these difficulties, Cl1l113,,iOll.ll'lVltE1- tion of the American people, severed diplomatic relations with the Central 1'.!TlPlI'CS.ll1 August. 1917, and within a few months declared war. As a belligerent on the Allied side. China sent over to France 135,000 of her young men to work behind the trenches. Of course thev were supposed to work and not to fight, but in the midst of fires and bloody fights many a Chinese laborer came face to face with the enemy. and either killed the blood- thirsty Boehe or sacrihccd his own life. Look yonder in the battlefield of west front, there rages the storm of bombardment and machine-guns, and in the midst of this you see groups of Chinese workcrsidigging trenches or carrying on to the front lines loads and loads of munitions at the risk of their own lives. The winter of 1917 and the spring of thc fol- lowing year saw the Germans pressing' on steadily westward and the Allied forces needed to use every soldier that they could possibly spare. Therefore, at such a critical moment 135,000 Chinese laborers meant 135,000 more troops to the Allies, and how much these Chinese workers contributed to the final victory of our couse, I shall leave for history to tell. Besides these 135,000 Chinese youth of whom thousands and thousands still lie among the ruins of Belgium and France where they worked, fought, and died. China also placed nine stcamers at -the disposal of the Allies, in spite of the fact that she needed them very badly for her own export trade. China also offered to send 100,000 more Chinese troops to Europe to hasten the victory of our common cause. but failed only because of the failure of thc Allies to furnish the necessary transports. Now if we realize the peculiarly difficult position in which China was placed during the first two years of the conflict, and the part China has taken in the VVar, no matter how small and insignificant it might be, can you say that China has not done her part in the Fight for the cause of liberty and freedom, a cause which you love, and we also love? On the other hand, let us see what were 1apan's war activities, japan, a world power, whose delegates sat in the Council of Four, and discussed the welfare of the world, and east the fortunes of those small, unfortunate, and helpless nations. Japan and Her War Activities The first thing that we know is that japan declared war on Germany. But did XIIXEISQIHXXXI Page One Hundred Two 27,2 'il?.Yi'ff ,A :frm wi' ff- tu- :sister ",:ms5f5'rf 4, .. she take any steps further than that? Did you hear of any Japanese troops either working or fighting on the European soil? No, absolutely not. There was not a single japanese soul engaged in any sort of war activities on the battlefield. But has she done anything at all, you may ask. Yes, she has. and she has done her part too, or, T might express the same thing in a different way by saying that she has done with great eagerness and persisteney what is typical of the Japanese people and Japan as a nation. She captured a handful of helpless Germans and conquered, so they say, the German leasehold of Kiachow. For this handful of Germans, feeble and helpless as they were, and apparently unable to give any resistance, japan sent regiments after regiments over to the western coast of the China Sea. and what was all that for? Only Mikado him- self ean tell! And in spite of China's protests, japan landed most of her troops on the shore of China, then a neutral nation, just as neutral as Belgium was at the beginning of the War. The forced passage through Belgium of the German troops aroused uni- versal indignation throughout the world. The very same act was repeated in the East, and the world ignored it. Meantime japanese statesmen were trying out their elo- ouence, and talking everything in terms of humanity and freedom. japan repeatedly made solemn promise to return Kiaochow to China, and the world hailed her as the champion of liberty in the Far East. After the capture of Kiaoehow, japan was com- paratively at leisure, and for the sake of maintaining the peace of the Far East, as the Tokio government proclaimed. ,lapan delivered the twenty-one demands to China and demanded the Chinese government keep strict secrecy regarding the contents of these demands. On the other hand. the Tokio government announced a portion of these demands to the world, and excluded all the vital items which would arouse indig- nation in every warm-bloodcd heart. And when some of these unspeakably inhuman demands were Finally revealed, Japan even denied of their existence. Here is a reflec- tion of the political moral and diplomatic conscience of Japanese statesmen and of the Japanese government. Threats, intimations. coupled with an ultimatum were too much for an infant republic, and on May 7, 1915, at the point of bayonet, China signed what is now internationally known as the Treaty of Pekin. This is one of japan's war activities when the western world was all engaged in a life-and death combat with Prussia. Japan prevented China from taking an active part in the War in the years of 1915 and 1916. japan even took the trouble to propose to take the responsibility as a spokesman on behalf of China at the Peace Conference, which China declined. But last of all. japan's war activities will be more properly understood and appreciated if you read Zimmerman's communication between Germany and Mexico. There was every probability that had the armistiee not been signed Germany would have had two more allies, and the War would have been prolonged. Do you want any proof for that? You will find plenty of it in the speeches, addresses, and interviews given even by japan's own ambassador at Washington. This is the part japan played during the war, remember, Japan, an ally and a world power. And as a reward for her faithful service, japan was given the Ray of Kiaochow, a territory absolutely Chinese, and all the railroad and mining privileges in the Province of Shantung together with its popu- lation of 30,000,000 Chinese people, a population equal to one third of the entire popu- lation of the United States, or ten times as large as the State of Wisconsin. The Shantung Settlement and International Law Yes. the Bay of Kiaochow, absolutely Chinese territory, let me repeat. Tn the first place, China never conceded Kiaochow to Germany. ln the Treaty of 1898 China leased to Germany the Bay of Kiaochow for a period of ninety-nine years. Now, notice, China leased Kiaochow to Germany, and did not concede, and as a leasehold it is plain that it was not, and could never be, a permanent property of Germany. According to international law if two nations declare war on each other, all the treaties between these two nations automatically become null and void, except those pertaining to boundaries and other permanent properties. Kiaochow was not perma- nent property of Germany, and therefore international law demands the restitution of Kiaoehow to China on China's declaration of war. You may argue that Japan captured Kiaochow before China entered into the War. and so China's entrance into the War did not have anything to do with the possession of Kiaochow. Well, what kind of logic is that? No matter whether China entered into the War before or after japan took Kiaochow, it is a matter of common sense as well as international morals that if China entered into the War at all, Japan remained the military occupant. but not the possessor of Kiaehow. Or you may say that by virtue of the Treaty of Pekin XXXXlX ,Q YQXXXX Page One llundred Tllree xx XXX China had literally agreed to let japan have a free hand in the negotiation with Ger- many after the VVar in regard to Kiaochow. This is another fallacy again. Inter- national law says any treaty loses its effectiveness if the circumstances under which the treaty was made are changed. Now the Treaty of Pekin was concluded before China entered into the War. and China was then forced to sign this death warrant under the pressure of an ultimatum. But after China's declaration of war on .Germany the circumstances under which the treaty was signed were entirely removed, and there- fore in the light of international law this Treaty of Pekin was abrogated and no longer existed. Yet in spite of such a plain case like this which every normal being with a certain amount of education could readily understand and solve, the crowned heads abandoned their natural way of reasoning, and gave to japan the Bay of Kiaochow. a purely and absolutely Chinese land together with a larger sphere of influence over the Province of Shantung 'with its mines, railroads, and a population of 30,000,000 people. There was no international law in the Peace Conference of Versailles. And what was all that for? just for japan's signature to the League of Nations. The Province of Shantung larger than the State of Pennsylvania with a population of 30.000,000 people, just for the signature of japan. just think of it. Cut off a piece of land and a por- tion of the people of an ally just to please the ever-growing and insatiable appetite of national aggrandizemcnt of another ally. The weak ally is made to suffer for the benefit of a stronger one! japan has got what she expected, and China lost more in this Treaty of Paris than in the Treaty of 1898. There is no provision made in the present treaty in regard to the period of time japan is going to keep Kiaochow and Shantung. She can keep them as long as she feels like it. In the treaty of 1898, the uniformity of the Chinese customs system was preserved, and Germany was obliged to collect the customs and turn them over to China. ls there any provision made to this etifect in the present treaty? Many enterprises in Shantung were a joint affair between China and Germany, and the Peace Coference made a generous gift to japan without any discrimination whatever. Such is the reward for China for her participation in the War. l can see steamer after steamer coming into the Bay of Kiaochow from japan with cargoes of morphine and other poisons which the Chinese government and the Chinese people, with the co-operation of the American missionaries, have deter- mined in the past score of years to prevent. During the two years of occupancy of K.iaoehow by japan, thousands and thousands of pounds of morphine alone have been smuggled into China and thus undone the work which the Chinese people and the Ameri- can missionaries have accomplished with great difficulty in years. And it is also a strange coincidence that of those 135,000 Chinese youths who worked on the battle- field of Belgium and France, 100,000 of them were from Shantung. now the Alsace- Lorraine of Asia. As a subject of an independent nation, these 135,000 young men bade farewell to their mothers, wives, sweet-hearts, sisters. brothers, and dear friends, and left their dearly-beloved land for France. As subject of an independent nation, they worked, fought, and thousands of 'them died. Those who survived in the trenches went home, but disappointed and dismayed, and are to be looked upon only as a con- quered people of a conquered land. Upon their arrival at home. they did not have any welcome as you have rendered to the returned American soldiers and sailors, but instead' of a welcome they found their mothers and sisters no longer free citizens but poor creatures under the yoke of subjngation. They found their sweethearts and friends no longer subjects of an independent nation, but slaves, and slaves to a nation which they dislike. On their arrival at home. they found their home no longer a part of China as it used to be, but a conquered land, a second Korea. Oh, Friends, don't you hear the drowning voices of those 30,000,000 innocent people in Sliantung who are now crying for justice? Don't you see those mothers and children who have been deprived of liberty and freedom and are now being outraged, wronged, and tortured under the ruthless iron-hand of an alien nation?

In spite of their efforts, neither was forthcoming. and they were almost beginning to despair, when someone had an inspiration. Two forms disappeared in the dark down a side street, while the rest of "the wearers of the green" headed for the College. Under the front steps of the College the group halted and one of the two walked a little distance away and gazed long' and earnestly upward at the bell- tower. Soon the two who had left returned and everyone quietly entered the building. Now and then a flashlight cut the darkness as the party stealthily climbed the stairs toward the chapel. Once inside, the flashlights revealed a small trap-door above the stage, but far out of reach. There was a shuffling of feet as half a dozen ran to lind a ladder. Meanwhile, the rest waited in the darkness. Voices, and a few crashes announced the approach of a ladder. Quickly it was placed in position, and up swarmed the eager "frosh." After much hard work, sweating, and a little cursing, the ladder was hauled up and cau- tiously placed out on the roof. One of the fellows who had left produced a large green and white banner, and the long boy of the class climbed the swaying ladder, and balancing on the top rung, nailed up the banner as high as he could reach. A subdued cheer greeted his "nervy" action. "Excelsior," Allison E. Skaggs, '24, REBER QQ WWMHH Page One Hundred Six -- JV, :fu A V11 .:. .- ' ww, ,.

His only hope lies in the silver feather which, on account of its magic properties, has been stolen. Courtiers and knights are searching the country for the lost feather, the gift of an old magician. SCENE I. The kitchen of the king's palace. It is a large room with a huge open fire- place. Over the fire hangs a kettle of broth. l'ots. pans and other cooking' utensils are hung' along the walls.

Ludi, liaving stumbled into the eztve, linds himself in the power of the little dark men. The ceiling of the grotto is 'hung with glistening stalaetites. A cold breeze blows through, and dimly is heard the muffled roar of a mountain river. Rollcan, an elf, is giving orders to many little dark men who are hurrying to and fro with bags of gold and jewels. ROLLCAN Nor idle shall you be, oh mortal boy, Since you came stumbling with your clumsy feet Within our own domain, our mountain cave. Never before has mortal trod our halls, Nor shall you go again to tell the tale Of walls of beaten gold, all filigreed And sit with shimmering jewels of every hue.

The purpose of the organization is to further all athletics and it acts as a governing body in the sports favored by the school. The offi- cers are the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. The executive committee is composed of the officers of the association and the faculty com- mittee on athletics. During the past year eight letters were awarded to basket ball men and eleven to baseball men who won their M's last year. It is pro- posed to change the constitution to provide for students who participate in' several intercollegiate contests but not enough to award them a letter. At an official meeting of the association early in April of this year it was decided to include intercollegiate tennis in the curriculum of college sports and with the prospects bright for a football team next year additional provision will be made in the constitution to cover these sports. I-Ieretofore there has been one form of letter for the tvwo major sports in the college but it is now pro- posed to differentiate in the style and size of emblem to be awarded to mem- bers of different teams. This plan was carried out, in a measure, this year, when four-inch M's were awarded to the basket ball men and six-inch M's to the baseball men. A large M will probably be given to the members of the football team of next year. This shows that the athletic association has taken steps to keep up with the program outlined by the faculty and Alumni committee on athletics. EERE! S IMEEHH Papze,0ne llunrlrcd Fourteen r . : .'

Une of the best Hoor men in basketball that Milton ever produced. This year he has done double duty in filling the offices of both captain and coach. Fast on his feet. sure in passing, and an adept in going into a scrimmage and coming out with the ball, he has been the main cog in the fast team work that has baffled more than one team. A little erratic in basket-shooting, yet he has a total of forty-seven field baskets to his credit, and has made twenty-nine out of a possible sixty-two free throws. While playing always a fast and hard game, he has had only four personal fouls called on him during the ten games in which he played. His has been a hard position to play this year with the double responsibility of coach and captain upon him, yet he has instilled into the players the spirit of fight to the end, and has not allowed the responsibility to interfere with his own game. Many have picked "Pede" as a forward on the first team of the smaller colleges of Wis- cousin. l HERBERT P. KAKUSKE HHerbH Weight l73g Height 6 ft.

Herb was a tower of strength both offensively and defensively. lt was dangerous to give him a chance to try a long toss for the basket, and he was deadly on "follow-up" shots. When our oppon- ents threatened, he was equally strong in breaking up their pass work and in smothering his forward's attempts to score. ln the ten games in which hc played, Herb scored twenty-three field goals to twenty-one caged by his various opponents. ln only two games, the Lawrence and Carroll home games, was he outscored by his forward. Inciden- tally, Herb was caught fouling seventeen times, eleven of these mishaps being "personals." IIIIIJ92 XXIII l'agc One Ilundred Sixteen W V W ' A A, A li fstifffeafft' .tm A A cARnoLL F.

Oakley handled the pivot in great style. ln only one game was he consistently outjumped by his opponent, al- though almost invariably handicapped in heightg for what he lacked in that respect he more than made up hy his ability to jump and his judgment of when to jump. On the defense, "Oak's" long reach broke up many a play before it was well started. For this reason he fitted ideally into the primary line of a five-man defensive system. The deadly accuracy of his shots, both from the center of the floor and under the basket, repeatedly brought grief to his opponents. He led the team in scoring from the field with a total of fifty-four -goals in ten games. He far outscored his opposing centers, although in so dointx he incurred the displeasure of the officials to the tune of nineteen "personals" and .two otherwise. However, the balance is still in lns favor. A I H. ARTHUR CURTIS 'X llBenY9 f ' X . . . . Qt' ij' VVClg'l'lt 1415 Height 5 ft. Sin.

HEMPHILL UDOCH Weight 1005 Height Sft. Slin. A. GERALD SAYRE uGerryn NfVeight 155, Height 5ft. SM, in. At the beginning of the season Lanphere faced a dearth of natural forward material. Accordingly it became necessary to develop a running mate for himself fast enough to fit in with the other members of the team. Sayre was the man. Although here- tofore he had played guard, he quickly accustomed himself to the new position and filled it admirably. He was not as deadly a shot as Lanphere or Oak- ley, but the team needed particularly his ability to work the ball down the Hoor. And the eleven bas- kets which he garnered in eight games came at crucial times, when the team was most in need of them. Gerry's strongest point, however, was his fighting spirit and his knack of following the ball. He was in the thick of the fight all of the time, working hard to win. His eleven personal fouls are a testimonial to the zeal of his efforts toward victory, for they all occurred in the heat of scrim- mage. It takes a husky man nowa-days to play station- ary guard and to break up plays that are coming through the primary defense. Here is where Hemp- hill excels. Having been in the service of Uncle Sam and having shown his contempt of the Ger- man "sub," he has no fear of any five men. For pastime "Doc" instructs in wrestling, and some- times this ereeps into his work in basketball. You must remember also that "Doc" is a married man. He was given sixteen personal fouls in eight games, but no opponent has yet accused him of "dirty" work. "Doc" is not supposed to leave his end of the Hoor, but in the game against the Janesville American Legion team he became excited and went down the floor to get his only basket of the season. Taking into account that this is his first year of collegiate basketball, great credit must be given Hemphill for his defensive game. IIIXEISZ Page One Hundred Eighteen . i' 'iv HMI!!!

Owing to an injury to his knee while playing baseball last year, Ferrill has had to favor that leg and has not been able to show at his best. When in condition Shorty is a fast man on the floor and has an uncanny eye for baskets. His work is char- acterized by clean play and seldom is a personal foul called on him.

Daland also was shifted from guard to forward this season and broke into five games at that posi- tion. In the last few minutes of the Carroll game at Waukesha, when the referee had excused Sayre from the game .via personals, "Prcx" helped to stem the enemy's attack until the final whistle in- sured our two point lead. His best work, how-- ever, was done in the Alumni game in which all he had to do was to throw the ball in the general direction of the basket. His nine held goals helped very considerably in swamping the old-timers. Soon thereafter he lost his "eye" for the basket, with the result that this comprised his season's total ex- cept for four "juicy personaflsf' "Prex" has sev- eral years of basketball yet ahead of him and will be a contender for the team next year.

Curtis Ferrill Daland Captain Lanphere Gives Summary of Season X'Vith six letter men and a wealth of new material that would gladden the heart of any coach, the prospects for a successful season were very bright in- deed. Although we had no coach we entered into the work of placing a team on the floor that would bring credit to the school and give us a place in the basketball world of the XVisconsin Colleges. At the first practice, 27 men report- ed. and all were ready to put forth their best efforts to make the season a dc- cided success. It was soon seen that the' lirst team would have to be made up from the older fellows of the school and without waiting for new stars to show up the men were divided into first and second squads. The tirst squad consisted of the captain, Oakley, one of the best centers in the state, and who had two years' experience in that position: Kakuske, captain- elect, as good a guard as ever defended the basket for Milton, and who had also had two years' experience in that position, Curtis, a man with two years' experi- ence at the position of guard, and although rather light, a hard tighter and a good man at floor workg Sayre. a new man but who fought every minute of the game and played a wonderful floor game tSayre had always been used as a guard, but the practices brought out the fact that he was of more value to the team as a forward and was soon holding down the position like a veteranl: llemphill, a new man. but whose natural ability and eagerness to learn the game EHBHH QQ WWMMH l':u.:e Une llnndrcd 'l'wt-nty :xr nas!!! of guard soon made him one of the most valuable men on the first team, Ferrill, a letter man. and although not a speedy man on the fioor and bothered with a bad knee, was a sure point maker and was the first man in line for utility workg and Daland, who, new to the game as played in colleges, had made a good show- ing in high school, and whose interest in the game gave him a position as sub. VVith these eight men the season started off with a rush and looked to be headed for a successful one, but it proved to be only a fiash in the pan. The first college game was with Ripon, at Ripon. We were just a little bit doubtful as to our ability to hold the 1919-20 state champions to a respectable score on their home floor, so the first half was not what it should have been. and we came out at the small end of a 14-8 score. It showed us that we were making a good game of it and that they were not going to run away with us. NVe went back for the final half with confidence and more fight, and succeeding in holding them to a 14-12 score. We came home just a little prouder of our- selves and with a little more fight in our blood. We played three practice games with an all-star team from Janesville, con- sisting of old high school stars, and l'1emming, a letter man of Wisconsin. and had little trouble in defeating them. The alumni game was won by a 59-11 score. VVe next journeyed to Carroll and we had not forgotten the game there last year when we were defeated 29-28, and were out for revenge. Wfe got revenge by beating them 30-28 in a hard, fast game. Lawrence came to Milton next and 'defeated us 25-23 in one of the best games of the season. We lost on fouls, for "Doc" and "Oak" were removed for personals. At VVhitewater we had an easy job and defeated them 31-14 and with the exception of a few minutes scored almost at will. Ripon came down for a return game and won 25-17. This game was very ragged and we deserved to lose. Carroll came to Milton, all primed for revenge, and won 24-17. This game ended the season which had been very disappointing to the members of the team. Let me express my thanks to the members of the team for their hearty co- operation in trying to play the game and making a team, also to Jim Stillman who captained the second team and who helped us to work up both our defensive and offensive. Of the new men there are three, who ought to make a bid for the first team next season. These are Skaggs, Hutchins and Hill. VVith these three, and four of the first team back next year, the new coach will have a fair nucleus with which to begin and we hope to be able to make up for the past season. Let me appeal to the students to back the new coach and the future teams of Milton to the end. Be with the team when they win or lose and try to forget your own petty likes and dislikes. The coach and members of the team are doing their best for Milton and you should do your share by back- ing them to the limit. The following men received the official basketball "M.". fPlaying in five or more intercollegiate gamesj: Captain Lanphere, Kakuske, Oakley, Sayre, Hemphill, Curtis. Those who received the basketball A-M-A, for recognition of services are Daland and Ferrill.

Our college basketball team, although perhaps not so successful a team as some would have liked, went through a short season meeting about the strongest lives that ever played basketball against Milton College. The Brown and Blue came out with a good record, and her few defeats were by narrow margins, so we might say that we had a fairly successful basketball team. Our case is no exception to the rule, and the members of the college second team de- serve every bit as much credit as the nrst team athletes, for Milton's good showing in bas- ketball this season. Indirectly they were responsible for the good work of the first team, yet they, like scores of other "second teams," are scarcely thought of by the public, and, unfortunately, the first teams get whatever praise is coming. To relieve the routine of the second team men, they arranged several games with neigh- boring teams. both local and from Janesville. But the "Seconds" met defeat at the hands of Union High, the local High-"Y" team, the Badger Club and the Janesville All-Stars. These defeats, however, did not dampen the arclor they had to help build a college team, and they fought all the harder against the "Varsity" five. It takes a real man to come out night after night to fight against the hrst team. A fellow who does this receives little material thanks, while on the other hand he is roughed- np. battered, beaten and knocked about by the first string men, who have little mercy. pity or respect in their efforts to learn the game. Thus the second team men showed that they had the true Milton spirit with the one thought of serving the school and the team. Such men as these were Captain Stillman, Skaggs, Hutchins, Hill, Arrington, Merrill, Grant and Spoon. ight after night they did their bit. However, they will not have made these efforts in vain, for in coming years they will be fitted to step into the places left by departing "Varsity" men. There is no doubt, that with the same spirit shown then as they have shown while on the second team, they will do honor and credit to Milton College. XIIXXl92lWIIXI Page Une Hundred Twenty-tln'ee IIIFIDE XII Inter-Class Basketball Tournament The basketball season at Milton College is usually heralded by the annual tournament of class games. Accordingly, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings of Novem- ber 9, 10 and ll, 1920, the inter'-class contests held sway in the activities of the College. Two games were held every night, permitting each team to meet every other quintet in the tournament. The results showed the juniors easily the winners of the class basketball championship, for they had no opposition whatsoever. This can be readily appreciated when one realizes that four of the Junior five later represented the college first team. In the first game of the tournament, on Tuesday night, the Juniors ran away with the Sophomores by a 62 to 4 score, the Sophs not getting a field goal. However, Lanphere, of the Juniors, purposely tossed a goal for the Sophs in the last few seconds of play. Oakley made nineteen baskets in this game. The second centest was a real battle, with the Seniors nosing out the Freshmen 16 to 14. The Frosh had been previously looked upon as possible "dark horses," and when the upper classmen took them into camp it surprised not only the Freshmen themselves, but also the entire school. ' Wednesday evening found the juniors and Seniors first on the firing line. Again the mighty Junior scoring machine was set into action, and the Seniors were crushed 72 to 4. Lanphere and Oakley made eleven goals apiece. Kakuske eight, and Captain Sayre, tive. Captain Curtis of the Seniors was their only scorer, and he made but one basket and two free throws. The fourth game of the tournament gave the Frosh a chance for revenge, after their defeat by the Seniors. With this in view they trounced the Sophs 23 to 5. Captain Da- land of the first-year men made thirteen of their twenty-three points, while Captain Hemp- hill of the Sophs made four of his tam's five points. Thursday night brought the final games of the inter-class tournament. First the Sen- iors and Sophomores staged their battle, and the Sophs were trimmed to -the tune of 30 to 10. Curtis of the Seniors was the individual star, making eighteen of the Senior's thirty points. In the last game the undefeated Juniors clashed with the Frosh. The yearlings knew they could not win, so they went into the fray with the determination to check the junior onslaught. To some extent they did this, at least better than either the Seniors or Sophs had done, for they guarded Oakley very closely. This left others free and thus Lanphere tossed in twelve baskets and Kakuske, seven. Even then, between them, Oakley and Sayre contributed tive more. The smoke cleared away with the Frosh smothered under a 50 to 4 score. Daland made all of the Frosh points. Thus the juniors, who later formed thc main part of the college team, were undisputed class basketball champions.

S. Basketball Tournament The Ninth Annual High School basketball tournament of Milton College was held Wednesday and Thursday, March 2 and 3, Eight teams were entered-Union High of Milton and Milton junction, Edgerton. Evansville, Lake Geneva, Stoughton, Oregon. Lake Mills, and New Glarus High Schools. A twelve-game elimination tournament followed, with eight games Wednesday afternoon and evening, and the remaining four contest on Thursday afternoon and night. Union High won first place. Edgerton second. Evansville third, and Lake Geneva fourth. The games: WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON New Glarus 95 Oregon 8 The first game of the tournament was between Oregon and New Glarus, both dark horses. The game was an even battle throughout and at no time during the game did either team have any advantage. The score at half time was 5-5. By throwing two field goals, New Glarus succeeded in winning.. Edgerton 285 Lake Geneva 7 Playing their second team with the exception of Capt. Scofield, left guard, Edgerton humbled Lake Geneva Z8-7. lt was lidgerton's game from the beginning as the first half ended 15-1. Madden was the chief scorer with four field goals. He was replaced by Had- den, who followed closely with three. Stoughton 195 Lake Mills 0 A In the third game of the afternoon Stoughton took Lake Mills into camp by the unusual score of 19-0. Stoughton played their second team during the second period and held them safe by 10-0. Union 125 Evansville 6 In the most exciting game of the afternoon, with the first half ending at 2-2. Union came hack strong in the second half and beat Evansville 12-6. Un1on's scoring was divided up among all the team, each member scoring at least one fieldgoal. The close guarding of Manogue and McNitt featured. WEDNESDAY EVENING Lake Geneva 105 Lake Mills 2 The first game in the evening between Lake Mills and Lake Geneva was slow. Each team made only a single free-throw during the first half. During the second half Lake Geneva's guards woke up and put some life into the team so that they managed to make three field goals. Edgerton 355 New Glarus 0 Edgerton exposed their regulars to view for the. first time in the second game of the evening against New Glarus. After giving them a little practice for three-quarters of the game. in which they piled up a good score and at the same time held their opponents score- less, they were hidden away again to await the final game for first and second place. Nor did the scoring cease when the seconds went in, doing almost as well as the regulars. - Evansville 225 Oregon 13 E Oregon came back strong in their second game against their close neighbors from Evansville. Having played together a half dozen times this season they proceeded to enjoy themselves as good friends, chaffmg each other good naturedly. Evansville's team work was not so apparent probably because Qregon was accustomed to their low passing system. Evansville held the lead from the beginning, however. and when the final gun went oft the score was 22 to 13. - Union 165 Stoughton 11 Union High faced their second hard game the last thing Wednesday evening against their old friends from Stoughton. The game as close at the start, the first quarter ending 5-5. Union pulled away by a three-point lead from then on. Kirby of Stoughton showed a wicked eye for long shots and kept Union H-igh rooters in suspense most of the time. Milton's offense was too strong for even the almost air tight system for which Stoughton has always been noted. IIIIIiI9.2lEXXXX Page One Hundred Twenty-seven VVV VAJ' VV? A A A .f f A A A THURSDAY AFTERNOON Evansville 85 Stoughton 7 Great interest was shown in the game between Evansville and Stoughton, two of the strongest teams in the tournament. and this contest was about the best. Half time showed Stoughton with a 7 to 3 margin. In the third quarter Evansville made a free throw, while Stoughton was unable to score. After a short rest both teams came back with the spirit of winning. The only field goal made the second half was made by MacMurray of Evansville in the first few seconds of this period. Stoughton then resorted to a stalling game, playing for time, as they thought they had the game. In the final few seconds of the game, Kirby of Stoughton fouled a man while in the act of shooting a basket. This gave Evansville two trials at the basket. A great hush fell over the crowd as Roberts stood in the ring and dropped the ball through the basket twice and won the game for Evansville by one point. Lake Geneva 165 New Glarus 3 The second game of the afternoon was slow. The first half Lake Geneva had every- thing their own way and at the close of the half the score was Lake Geneva 10, New Glarus 1. 'The second half New Glarus came back stronger and held Lake Geneva to six points while they made two. Although they were out-weighed and outclassed, New Glarus put up a scrappy game, considering the size of the men and their experience. The game ended with Lake Geneva 16, New Glarus 3. THE FINAL GAMES Evansville 6g Lake Geneva 2 In the battle for third place at 7:00 p. m. Thursday night, Lake Geneva met the strong Evansville quintet, the latter being by far the favorites. Everyone looked for Evansville to have a walkaway gameg but the fast work of the Lake Geneva athletes in this game made their heavier opponents work every minute to win. At half time the score stood 3 to l in favor of Evansville, and when the final time was blown, victory and third place in the tournament went to Evansville by a score of 6 to 2. Union 23, Edgerton 11 Then followed the championship game of the tournament-and what a game it was. Union High and Edgerton, the only undefeated teams in the tournament, clashed for first honors, the tournament cup and the trimmings. Hundreds of loyal, ardent supporters for both teams were there to cheer their boys to victory. The largest tournament crowd on record attended this contest, there being between 1100 and 1200 present. Even then many had to be refused admission because of lack or room. Union, having been defeated twice at the hands of Edgerton, during the past season, were after revenge, while Edgerton, on the other hand, hoped to repeat their past victories. The first half was nip and tuck, with a see-saw score. At half time Edgerton led by a single point, ll to 10. The second period was nearly a repetition of the first. with Union gaining only a slight lead, until the last few minutes of play. Then several baskets in quick succession netted Union a big margin, while the Tobacco City boys were unable to score in this period. The local lads won the game and the championship by a 23 to ll score. and when time was called the big gymnasium shook with the cheering of the crowd.

B. church parlors to be welcomed hy the men stu- dents and faculty of the college in Milton's famous annual "Tournament Banquet." Like the tournament. the banquet was a huge success. and with 125 present. all were glad they humor. Grace was said by Prof. A. E. Whitford, and the next half hour was well spent came. Little needs to be said about the excellent repast presented, which put all in a good in "going south" with the many good things we had to eat. With this duty well done, we prepared for the program. with Prof. L. H. Stringer as toastmaster. First of all the glee cluh sang the "standard" song of tournament banquets. "The Negro Medley." They responded to a hearty encore and then Prof. A. E. Whitford presented a toast to thc losers. Prof. j. N. Daland spoke of "Athletics and Elucationf' which was followed by a line talk by Professor Cady of Oregon, who solved the question, "The Tournament-Does it Pay P" Coach Edwards of Evansville spoke a few words and then H. P. Kakuske. who umpired the tournament. presented a toast to the winners. Union High. Following this, Toastmas- ter- Professor Stringer presented the trophies. The Union High lads received the beautiful loving cup and individual prizes of gold watch fobs. The Edgerton players received silver fobs for second place and Evansville, the bronze fobs. Each team was cheered, and Cap- tain Astin of Union gave a brief word of appreciation. The glee club sang another selection, after which Prof. W. D. Burdick announced the first and second all-tournament teams. and gave details regarding the features of the games and scoring of individuals. The all-tournament teams, chosen by vote by all the coaches, and the members of Milton College quintet. showed tie vote for the first team center position, between Sayre of Union and MacMurray of Evansville. One receiving the most votes is generally team captain, but since here, too. was a tie. no captains were au- nounced for the all-tournament teams. These teams were as follows: First Team- ' Second Team- Kirby fStoughtonJ .............. Forward Heller fEdgertonJ ..... .... F orward Astin CUnionD ..................

Guard Union and Edgerton Highs got seven out of eleven places on these teams, showing that they deserved their First and second places respectively in the tournament. After these announcements short talks followed by the coaches of the Union, Edgerton and Lake Mills teams, and also by Professor Buell of Union High and Langacher, on the New Glarus team. Professor Inglis concluded the program telling of the tournament spirit. This tourna- ment was closely contended, with four strong teams bidding for first place. It was unique in that it had such low scores, two teams being held to scoreless games. Another feature was the fact that not a man had to be put out of a game for personal fouls, for the tourna- ment was. exceptionally cleanly played. It was pronounced to be the most successful. in every respect. of any tournament yet held by Milton College. The attendance exceeded all previous records by far. The officials of the tournament deserve commendation for their work. They were l.. L. Lanphere, referee: H. P. Kakuske. umpire: F. F. Ferrill, scorer: ,l. l. Stillman. timer: P. H. Hemphill, ticket seller. and ,l. K. Stiba and B. Spoon, ticket takers. How- cver. most credit lies to Professors W. D. Burdick and D. N. Inglis, through whose efforts things came about so successfully. Thanks are also in order to those homes opened to en- tertain the visiting teams and to the Badger Club, who opened their club to all the visitors. This tournament. with its banquet, will ever linger as a pleasant memory to all those who participated. winners and losers alike: and it will ever be a shining example of what our College can do. IIIIBISZIKIIII Page One Hundred 'l'w4-nty-nine . . l II BA E BALL I XfVhen Coach "Clem" Crumb first sounded the call for baseball candidates in early fall, he was greeted by about twenty-live aspirants who gave hearty and active answers to the call of the Coach. In the fall a week or so was spent in active baseball practice, for there was no football to prevent this. This gave the new coach somewhat of a line on his men, and he was quite enthusiastic at the baseball prospects for Milton College in the spring. Then, with the ap- proach of cold weather, baseball was tucked away to make room for basketball: but the coach still laid plans for the coming season. However, when the basketball season closed in the latter part of February. Coach Crumb lost no time in issuing his spring baseball call. This, too, was heartily received, and, as in the fall, about twenty-five men showed up for the indoor training in the big gymnasium. Here the rudiments of the game were hammered into the aspiring athletes, and the old horsehide pill was tossed and batted mercilessly about the gym, much to the sorrow of many unguarded win- dows. This was continued until weather permitted outdoor practice. When the men pranced out upon the sod of the diamond for the first time, they already had their batting eyes and their throwing arms in trim, thanks to the intensive indoor training. Nine baseball letter men-Captain Curtis, Lanphere, Oakley, Kakuske, Sayre, Ferrill, Stillman, Hemphill and johnson-who received their M's in past seasons, formed the nucleus of this season's team. In addition were quite a few others. some of whom made the team and some who made many an old-timer hustle to retain his position on the team. Among these were l-lutchins, Hill, Arrington, Korth, Chadsey, Lewis, Dunwiddie, Shumway, Summers, Shiba. Myrle Davis, Milton Davis, Walters, Van Horn, Moeller, Grant. Lippincott, Baker, and Rodolf. Because of the "Fides" going to press before the active season began. no definite lineup is printed: nor is a complete schedule given. 'l-liowever, at the time of this printing, Baseball Manager H. P. Kakuske reported the base- ball schedule to be completed as follows: Friday April 8-University of Wisconsin at Madison. Thursday April 14-Carroll at Milton.

HEHBEIS WHERE Page Une llumlrrl Thirty-uric TENNIS l C U U l l At the close of the basketball season before the enthusiasm of the basket-- ball tournament has died away our minds are turned toward the out-of-door re- ereations of baseball and tennis. Before the courts outside are ready for use the gymnasium, which now includes a tennis court, is a popular place for both old tennis fans and for new enthusiasts. During the last few years in Milton Col-- lege there has been an increasing interest in this most popular of athletic sports among college students. Interest in tennis has increased to such an extentnthat for the first time in the history of Milton College the Athletic Association has voted to have intercollegiate tennis. Alexander Daland, chairman of the tennis committee. is arranging an inter- esting series of matches with several of the colleges of the state. Matches with the University of Wisconsin, Campion College, and Whitewater Normal, have already been scheduled. VVe are planning on having the regular college tennis tournament on a larger scale than last year. This may include mixed doubles and singles in addition to mcn's and ladies' doubles and singles. The college tennis tournament last year consisted of men's and ladies' sin- gles. The final matches resulted in victories for Alexander Daland and Chloe Van I-Iorn, who won from Howell Randolph and Doris Randolph, respectively. In the semi-finals of the ladies' division Miss Van Horn defeated Helen Shaw, 6-2, 2-6, 6-3. In the semi-finals of the men's division Daland defeated Carroll Oakley,-6-2, and by forfeit. Randolph defeated W. D. Burdick 3-6, 7-5, 9-7. In the men's Finals the scores were 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. in favor of Daland. Miss Van Horn won from Miss Randolph by default in the ladies' finals. This year we shall miss three of the good players of last season, Helen Shaw Thorngate, '20, Chloe Van Horn Hemphill, '23, and H. S. Randolph, '20, but the new students have brought with them this year promising material to take their places. The ladies have elected Miss litta Hodge captain of their team. A good number of ladies are out for practice and the prospect for ladies' tennis in the future is good. This season, with two courts in better condition than ever before, with full equipment for the courts. and with the excellent new backstop just completed, for which thanks are due to Daland and the excellent support of interested students, we are ready to begin our first season of intercollegiate tennis, and to pave the way for a fuller enjoyment of this sport among Milton students. The tentative schedule follows: April 29, University of Wisconsin at Madison, May 4, Campion at Miltong May 9, Whitewater at Milton, May 13, Ripon at Ripon, May 27, Whitewater at Whitewatcrg june l, Ripon at Milton, june 7, Leland Stanford at Milton, June 15, Alumni at Milton.

The attendance has been good and the interest very high. Heretofore the class has been looked upon as a task, but this year it has been more of a pleasure than Elll5'thing else. Hesides the regular setting-up exercises, there has been instruction in box- mg. wrestling. tumbling, work on the springboard, the parallel and horizontal bars. and much close order drill. This variety of activities has aroused considerable interest and even those who were not required to take the work have asked to be admitted to the class. As soon as the weather permitted outside activities, such as baseball and tennis, were begun, and the regular inside work for the year was suspended. The work of the girls' gym class has this year been greatly enjoyed. The class has had the usual setting up exercises and games. but the most interesting part has been the basketball. We organized lyeeum and elass teams and played several games. lt is hoped that the girls can carry on basketball to I1 greater extent next year because we have ma- terial for a strong team.

Crandall l'Jl'Cl"AlQ'l'NlIZNT of physical training should serve at least two purposes: not only should it be a distinct benefit to the college, but also the students should gain something of permanent value from the training they receive. The first we hope will be served through publicity given to the college and conse- quently through increased enrollment. The second will depend upon the extent to which the students make use of their privileges. The gymnasium will be equipped as fully as means will permit and equal facilities will be given to all men and women to use this equipment. Gym classes will be conducted to satisfy the requirement of two years of physical training. Attention will be given to the physical needs of each student and if any defect can be corrected by some forth of exercise the case will be treated individually under the advice of a phy- sician. Basketball and baseball have always held the chief interest in Milton's ath- letics, and probably they will continue to do so. However. football will be under- taken next year with the intention of making it a prominent part of our ath- letic activities in the future. The schedule for the first season will depend upon the apparent strength of the team, but the time will be devoted chiefly to learn- ing the game and to developing material for succeeding years. Cross country will be run in connection with football. Emphasis also will be given to track, both indoor and outdoor, lf possible dual meets will be arranged with other colleges and representatives will be sent to the state intercollegiate meet. Tennis, which has been started on an intercollegiate basis this year, will be continued next spring. Two courses of instruction have been planned. One on 'Hygiene and First Aid will consist of lectures and demonstrations with practice in administering tirst aid. The other, a "coacher's class," will be conducted for the benefit of upper classmen who intend to teach in high school the following year and handle athletics in connection with their teaching. College credit will be allowed for each of these courses. It is the cherished hope of the director that the department may be a force- ful inliuence for good-that it may benefit the student morally and spiritually as well as physically. The ideals that the college has always stood for we hope to magnify through our athletic relations with other schools. Our motto will be, "Clean Minds, Clean lriodics and Clean .'Xthletics."

Merrill The Milton Forward Movement was organized in l9l3 for the purpose of "making known abroad the merits of Milton College. of increasing the attend- ance of said institution. of assisting the financial committeeof the college. of promoting the general welfare of the town and the community, and of raising money for the above-named purposes." The students and the faculty of Milton College are active members, while all the alumni who are interested in this movement are honorary members. Besides the usual officers tfhere are committees which take an important part in the work. The Campus Service Committee finds rooming and boarding places, and employment for new students. and does all in its power to make them feel at home. It also makes plans for raising money for the purposes first enum- erated above. The New Students' Committee has charge of all advertising done in connection with this movement and makes known the advantages of Milton College to prospective students. directing the efforts of the organization in se- curing their attendance. The Community XVelfare Committee co-operates with all other organizations which tend to promote the public good and general wel- fare Of t'he community and the surrounding country. An annual meeting is held on the third Tuesday after the opening of col- lcge, while the President may call special meetings when necessary. V W The Milton Forward Movemnt has done much to further the interests of Milton College during the past eight years, and should be commended for its ac ivity.

Leona Sayre Secretary ............................................. Mizpah li. Bennett Treasurer ................................................ Albert Babcock Debate Manager ..............................,............. C. C. Thomas The purpose of the Oratorical Association is implied in its name. Every student who is a member of one of the four literary societies belongs to the as- sociation. and the college faculty are also members. The Oratorical Associa- tion was organized in October, 1903. Its first officers were Edna Zinn. presi- dent: I-I. H. T. jackson, secretaryg and l-l. C. Stewart, treasurer. For many years after its organization the Oratorical Association conducted annually two contests: a declamatory contest for the academy students. and an oratorical contest for the college students. These contests aroused much enthusiasm and a strong spirit of rivalry among the lyceums. In the first declamatory contest. which was held December 15, 1903, we read that John Daland participated with a selection from Burke, "C Dn American Taxation." In the first oratorical contest, held in March of the same school year, D. N. Inglis took the second prize, with his oration, "Citizenship and In- tetnperancef' The names of other present faculty members appear in the rec- ords as prize winners in later contests. After the academy was abolished, the declamatory contest was given over to freshmen, who maintained it until 1918, when the last declamatory contest was held. The interest in the oratorical con- test has not waned, and lyceum loyalty still urges Milton students to put their best efforts into this annual affair. The winners in this year's contest were Etta Hodge, Lenore Kumlien, Herbert Kakuske, and Raymond Scholtz. In recent years, the Oratorical Association has fostered an enthusiasm for debating which bids fair to outweigh the interest in oratory. The debates are not merely intra-mural events like the contests, but are inter-collegiate. Milton has won debates with Ripon and Carroll Colleges, and she has lost to these schools. This year we were twice defeated in a double debate with Ripon and were victors in a home debate with Northland. The men on our college teams were Clifford Thomas, Carroll Oakley, G. A. l-largis. Vincent Raukuce, Leon Maxson, and joe johnson. Two teams from the men of the freshmen class are preparing for a double debate with the freshmen of Carroll College. The value of debating is widely recognized among the students, and the Oratorical Association will undoubtedly make the forensic art its chief activity in the future. Zea Zinn. Page Une Ilundrcd Tliirty-eight aww Mt fFiTwN" Herbert P. Kakuske we must define the word " DOES EDUCATION PAY Winning Oration The development of mankind through the history of ages has heen a gradual process of evolution, which, al- though comparatively slow in its heginning, has reached its tremendous climax through the marvelous achiev- ments of education since the heginnii .- of our established history, a few thousands of years '..g.r. The last few cen- turies, which we migln regard as the strictly modern period. have contrihutcd more towards this development than all the previous eras. Education. itself the devel- opment of man. has come down the long aisle of years always preceding achievement, invention and discovery. Progress has always hten hand in hand with learning, hut the perfection of processes and developments has ever followed in the wake of educational advancements. It cannot he denied then, that primarily we owe our highly developed condition to the education and learning of the past: and this fact alone would give hut one answer to the question, "Does Education Pay?" Yet, modern this light. up-to-date. opinion docs not regard edueatiolrexactly in and to meet the question in a manner strictly education' in terms that are fitting and suitable in every mean- ing ot the present day, especially the popular idea. . VVehster tells us that education is 'cultivation and training. as of the mind' the LLC- 9 quisltion or nnparting of knowledge: or the complete result of mental training along a certain line." The popular and modern version of education is essentially the same as VVehster's. Society demands that one must at least he ahle to read, write and make some use of fig- ures. lnvcn those most indifferent towards learning regard the training of the primary grades as necessary and essential towards the well-heing of msn. Of course. one who is unahle to read, write or figure, could go through a life time of existence now. and he might even he happyg hut his happiness would he a case of "ignorance is bliss" and most likely he would not even know enough to appreciate the extent of his misfortune. Then too, his life would he made tolerable only hy the education of others about him: so it all reverts hack , to the truth that education is fundamental to man s welfare. Inasmuch as a grade school training is now almost demanded hy society, it is safe to assume that in a few more years a high school education will he the minimum standard. However, since there is a large gap hetween the high school and the college and university, this assumption cannot safely he carried further on, and it is not very likely that a college training will ever he demanded hy society as an eighth grade course now is. Therefore. in defining "education" for this question. l shall regard it purely as meaning higher edu- cation, or the training one receives at colleges and universities after completing his high school course. When the young person completes his high school training he is generally called upon to make his first great de his studies or go out into lns fortune. lt is true that cision, in answer to the question of whether he shall continue the world to make an immediate and direct heginning towards many have this question answered one way or the other hy their environment or circumstances, The wealthy youth is sent to college generally as a mat- ter of course, and thus has education thrust upon lnm. On the other hand, the poor boy Page One Hundred Thirty-nine XHBF WMX of a large family, if he has been fortunate enough to finish high school, is usually called upon to help in the support and rearing of the others. Thus he too has this question auto- matically ansvvered and does not need to make a decision. However, between these extremes are the representative high school graduates, who, in most cases, can continue their schooling if they have the least desire to do so and also the necessary back-bone. It is these who must carefully consider the question, "Does edu- cation pay?" Of course. the indifferent and lazy lad might admit that a college education is an asset, but he is satisfied to take a chance in his battle of life with his high school diploma as a reference. ln too many cases we find that such high school graduates are too proud and think they know too much to do common labor, and yet they are not qualified to hold a real position. So "loafing" is the only course for them. Pity these poor chaps who usually have to "loaf" a year or so before their pride falls and before their distorted minds are set more nearly right by the hard knocks of an unkind and unsympathetic world. Now we must analyze the situation for the remaining class of high school graduates who are neither lazy nor indifferent. A fellow of this type is more likely to consider evi- dence on both sides before making a decision one way or the other. Much advice is given in favor of both courses, but the main argument is the mercenary standard by which every- thing is judged, even education. Right from the beginning, then, a sad mistake and mis- representation is held forth, for how can such a thing as knowledge, learning, or education be accurately or even approximately measured in dollars and cents? To seek education for its own sake seems simply out of the question today. and instead we hear asked, "How much money may I demand if I complete such and such a college course?" There would be little use to try to persuade the average young fellow of today to go to college just to learn for the sake of learning. In the days of the Renaissance such a thing was perfectly in order, as it now might and perhaps should beg but there is little persuasion in that line when we find that men in the shops and at common labor often times receive much more financial compensation than professors, teachers and even some men in the other main pro- fessions. Attractive wages draw the boys away from college, and, by the mercenary stand- ard, almost mock and sneer at education. That we have a system in which such a condi- tion is tolerated is to be highly regretted, and time alone can remedy this unwarranted situation. Since people as a whole measure education in pecuniary terms, our best arguments iu favor of college training will be those which show the direct financial benefits of a com- pleted college course. To set aside the other thousand and one reasons for going to col- lege and making a thorough investigation and analysis of edncation's financial value, should reveal what truth there is in the affirmative answer to the query, "Does education pay?" iVe shall not consider, then. education for Christian service, education for culture. or edu- cation for its own sake, although these are perhaps many more times as important as edu- cation for making money. We shall try to meet this question face to face in its own terms to suit the greedy' world in its unive.rsal clamor for the almighty dollar. The business man regards everything in the light of investment.-a return. for efforts, time and money put forth. An education, then, if it produces material returns, is an in- vestment. for it certainly costs time. money and effort. This is what the high school graduate must think about. lf he does not continue his schooling he will go to work and get into immediate and direct contact with the business world, He learns life in a broader sense, and in the school of experience is trained as he never was trained before. Now he is earning money and during the time he would otherwise be spending at college, he is laying the foundation for future happiness and perhaps success. He might be married early. His early marriage. his earning money. his broader experiences-all these things are also an investment which cannot be overestimated. for such an investment seems far more practical than the more hazardous investment of a college venture. in college he must give four or more years of the best part of his life besides the money it costs and the effort it takes: and when one stops to consider both these phases, he will need some mighty strong arguments to turn him towards college. especially when he has a good position offered him. Now. to show that an education does pay. we can look only to the past. Statistics are dry and cumbersome, but they are the most efficient and concise arguments for this case. So we shall examine various summaries of different institutions. No details are necessary to show that nations that have had educational advantages produce more than those un- educated. The Far liast. with primitive methods of farming and industry, cannot begin to compare with the Oceident. with its modern agriculture and industries. which are due to education. Natural resources. no matter how bounteous they might be, are worthless to uneducated peoples. Mines could not be operated by them: without chemistry and other IIIIIISNQIHIIXI Page Une llundred Forty 'J-2 'Ili-, 9 lf .., sm! ,. Hitt 'f 2 -if 1i.f:ifV"t tt'29i2'l SWAC, A A A 554 ifflG1.El.Y.'i' A A A sciences no great industries could be built. The ever increasing complexities of civilization bring new scientific and industrial problems which education alone can meet. Therefore, the necessity of education is rapidly increasing. ' But we must return to the individual to bring more convincing arguments. It is readily seen that national wealth and industry are dependent upon educationg and so also is the efficiency of the individual. In a summary of "Who's Who in America" in the past decade by W. W. Smith, we find in the distinguished men of America and their education, the following startling facts: Out of five million with no schooling. only thirty-one attained distinction, out of thirty-three million with elementary schooling, eight hundred and eight attained distinctiong out of two million with high school education, one thousand two hundred and forty-five attained distinciong while out of only one million with college edu- cation, five thousand seven hundred and sixty-eight attained distinction. Therefore, the child with no schooling has one chance in one hundred and fifty thousand of performing dis- tinguished serviceg with elementary schooling he has four times the chanceg with high school education, eighty-seven times :the chanceg but with a college education eight hundred times the chance. Let us look at education in connection with statesmanship and politics. In 1914 Pro- fessor ,l. C. Jones in the "Forum" gives us these figures: Less than one per cent of Ameri- can men are college graduates. Yet this one per cent of college graduates has furnished fifty-five per cent of our Presidentsg thirty-six per cent of the members in Congress: and hfty-eight per cent of the Speakers of. the House, the Vice-Presidents, the Secre- taries of State. the Secretaries of the Treasury, the Attorney Generals and the justices of the Supreme Court. Looking back still farther we find that of the men who framed the constitution, fifty per cent were college bred. The Hnancial return to the individual in these cases needs no explanation. Mr. james M. Dodge. one of America's foremost manufacturers, after much study and investigation of the various earning capacities of different classes, brings us this report: "Four years' training at a technical school makes a man by the time he is thirty-two. four times as valu- able as the laborer, three times as valuable as the shop-trained apprentice, and seventy-two per cent more valuable than the trade school graduate, each with its corresponding wage- surely a good return for four years spent in preparation." .He also found that the educated fail less often, for in his investigation, ninety per cent of the employed college men made good in high salaried and responsible positions, as compared with less than ten per cent of the men who entered business on leaving grammar or high school. In the professional world are exactly the same conditions and during the late war we found that in the army the mere fact that a man had once gone to college, was a decided recommendation. 1 could go on almost indefinitely, just giving similar statistics, but already these few prove the financial value of education. Knowledge enlightens the world and the brightest illumination is afforded only by the colleges and universities of today. Mr. H. J. Hapgood. himself an expert on education and industry, gets results exactly the same as Mr. Dodge and says, "Statistics based on data gathered from the experience of one hundred business houses, and covering a period of three or four years. show that about ninety per cent of the college men were successful in rising to large salaries and responsible positions as compared with twenty-five per cent of the non-college men. "There is no doubt that college graduates are the chief and best source of supply for the reserve force which every progressive hrm should be accumulating." Thousands of energetic young people, with minds keen and active, are uneducated today simply because education was never presented to them in the proper light. Think of the service to the community and nation such minds could be. had they but the proper training. Therefore, as citizens of this great country, where opportunity is ever present, let us consider it a duty and a privilege always to show, wherever we go, that education pays. Herbert P. Kakuskc, Milton College, Milton, Wisconsin, Class of 1922. IIIIZIQZ KXXXI Page One llundred Forty-one tv W W Ak A A 2 Am A OUR AMERICAN WOMEN Winning Declamation Through the new duties and responsibilities women have learned to assume, during the last tifty years, there has evolved, as a result, a creature of a new order. They have largely ceased to be amateurs and sentimentalists and have largely ceas- ed to be regarded as either one or the other or both as the natural and inevitable result of sex. Women are more a factor to be considered in both com- mon and uncommon events. Affairs of state and political movements are no longer dark mysteries to the Women of today. They have become inde- pendent, self-supporting and have acquired self- control. The doors into business and professional life are now wide open and through them one can see a constantly growing number of opportunities for service and for personal achievements. NVithout doubt the fifty years have revealed new lights, new powers, new reasoning, and results undreamed of in centuries past. But the question now arising is, are women yet sufficiently awake to the responsibilities and problems which increased opportunities inevitably bring? It would appear that women in their effort to free themselves from old limitations, both intellectual and economic, are striving too much in a direction which has been marked out by men and too little along original and personal lines. In their desire to be business women or public workers. they must not scorn their feminine qualities, but strive to retain their womanly ideals and per- sonality. Are these new duties, new responsibilities and new opportunities going to make .them true American women? Nineteen twenty-one linds the women of America in full stride beside the men citizens. They have played a large part in the election of Mr. I-larding as ,l'rcsident: they have voted for senators and congressmen, for governors and state legislators. for mayors and city councilmen, but the question arrises, what do women want now? Having achieved equal suffrage with men. will they be content to settle down to equal apathy and let professional politicians run our government, national, state, and municipal, or will they maintain those energetic lighting organizations which brought them the ballot, and with equal enthusiasm battle for laws which will make better homes, better manhood, better woman- hood, and childhood in America? Men have looked upon their citizenship as a tiod-given knowledge to which they sprang full-Hedged at the age of twenty-one. XVomen frankly and willingly admit that they have much to learn, and through printed literature widely dis- tributed, through courses of study in their clubs and colleges. they are already delving into depths of political science and uncovering mysteries which the politicians have long and successfully kept hidden from the voter's eyes. These facts show that women have done something worth while in politics. But what has politics done for women? People have talked a great deal about the,in- Etta M.

The effect of woman's balloting upon the people has been argued at great lengths, but what about its effect upon her, what has it done to her, for her? It seems to me this is rather an important question. A Colorado man once said that women do not change politics as much as politics changes women. There is no doubt that her work has been of some good in public life. but if it has made her less womanly, less feminine. it certainly has not helped America as a nation. It has been said that women cannot succeed in professional life unless they become professional and remain womanly. The same is true in po- litical life. if they become political they must remain womanly. It is a higher type of womanhood that America needs and if the new duties, new responsi- bilities and new interests tend to lower or lessen their ideals and morals it would be better for America not to have energetic political and professional women. The l-lome is the foundation of the state. Here our future Presidents, statesmen, congressmen, and legislators are born. Here their character, ideals and morals are formed. Is it not necessary then that our women have noble characters? American women have proven themselves very capable in very many ways but it should be in the making of homes that they are most capable and do their part best. They sh,ould make their homes as a great artist would paint his picture. They must give to the making themselves and out of their renunciation, out of their travail and out of their jog would be builded up and welded together households simple, happy, and good. which are our greatest strength as well as our greatest national achievement. 1-Iousekeeping and cooking should be interesting and worthy work: it should be considered elevating, the highest art, and not a menial, brainless occupation. lf a man is not ashamed of his profession or work there is no 1'eason why a woman should be ashamed of hers. XVomen should be able and willing to keep house as faithfully as they have taught school or music. .l. believe that home making, housekeeping and all that goes with it, is not drudgery, is not a narrow sphere for women, but that it is the very highest type of living. The charm of women has enabled them to get what they want wlhen they want it. The w.omen of America have more influence over the people with whom they come in contact than most any other power. In fact their influence is so great that they cannot afford to let professional work or political work lower their ideals or in any way lessen their individuality. Their character should be as strong as a great engine and thus put into action the complete efficiency of human beings. The supreme task of this generation should become the devel- opment of character of the one that is to follow. The lives of children are in the hands of mothers. lVhat women therefore gain today in the way of eman- cipation, of intellectual advance. of political knowledge, should not be for any personal right or self-gratification, but that they might be better equipped for their eternal vocation. that they might give their children a better chance. It is no longer considered a drudgery to be a homemaker but rather a profession. lloth education and training are necessary for women who select food, clothing and all the works of art for the growth and uplift of well-balanced families, mentally, morally, and physically. Whatever America may be in the future de- pends upon the homes of today. llmerson has said, "llc who gives us better homes, better books, better tools, a fairer outlook and wider hope, him will we crown with laurcls." Our American women are in a better position today to XXIII 2lWXXXX Page One lluntlred Forty-three J- :ff - '- ii: V13 '5-'1-ffl' ' mffxf i-. , U", ' --vt ?u."'5u,Q 4' ,:u'NJ, 'u f MN' i make themselves worthy of these laurelsf' Our American women are in a bet- ter position today to make themselves worthy of these laurels than ever before. It is to the younger women I appeal most urgentlyg it is their task, their duty to live their lives not for the present moment or passing hour, but for the future. The home, the character of the children, the morals and ideals of the coming generation are at her feet-she can do with them what she Will. Bold, daring' women, who have for their slogan, personal gains. personal honors at any cost of character are not the kind of women we want in America, but rather women whose simplicity, love, and pure character reflect upon all about them: women who have for their slogan, better homes, better manhood, better womanhood and a better America.

"J Debating' has Hcome back." lVlilton's enthusiasm for the forensic art has been stimulated this year by tive intercollegiate debates: two with Ripon, one with Northland. and two freshman debates with Carroll. The results have been most encourag'ing', for our teams carried off the victory in the three of these con- tests. The student body is proud of its debaters. and hopes are high for sev- eral winning' teams next year. The question debated by the college teams was: t'Resolved, that .liuropean immig'ration should be further l'CSt1'lC'ECtl by law." The affirmative team consisted of Clifford Thomas, Leon Maxson. and Carroll Oakley, while joe johnson, G. D. lflargis, and Vincent 'Raukuce supported the negative side of the question. llarly in March in a home debate the negative team met and defeated their lirst opponents, the affirmative team of Northland College. Although our friends from the north were filled with their subject as well as a determination to carry home the laurels, they found themselves unable to hold their ground against the carefully prepared and enthusiastically delivered argument of our negative ''word-warriors." The decision rendered was two to one in favor of Milton, and our men were inspired with further zeal in preparation for their trip to Ripon. This took place on March 10, and on the same evening' Ripon sent her negative team down here to meet our affirmative one. Both clashes resulted in victory for Ripong but both were closely contested and the Milton men proved themselves hard lighters and good losers. It cannot but be admitted that the Ripon men excelled ours in oratory and polish of manner, and possibly also in organization of material. However, the manager of the Ripon team acknowledged that dur- ing' the progress of t'he debate at Ripon he feared for the outcome, and at Mil- ton the home team 1'eceivcd one vote out of three. Raukuce was perhaps the star of the negative team. Although slightly handicapped by his imperfect linglish pronunciation, he put forth a sincere and direct appeal that could not fail to call forth the admiration of his audience. .Iohnson's work was char- acterized by a tremendous amount of vim, and l-.largis delivered a series of rapid tire arguments that were most convincing'. The affirmative team also exhibited an admirable lighting' spirit, including' Maxson. the youngest and most inexper- ienced of the college debaters. Oakley's streng'th lay in his rapid, forceful thoug'ht and delivery, while Thomas displayed logical thinking' and an unusual mastery of clear, smooth English. The work of these men has been of ines- timable value to them and has done honor to their college. tContinucd on page 1985 XIII!

Later in the year a number of students and townspeople were invited in to hear this play read. No lines were memorized. liach character walked through his part reading the lines. There was 110 scenery and no costumes were employed. ln spite of these facts, the readings were so much enjoyed by both readers and visitors that Julius Caesar was presented the follow- ing year in a similar manner. In 1905 so much interest was manifest that the three literary societies decided to stage the play in the big Commencement tent and to employ scenery and Shakespearean costumes. Miss Babcock was hired for a very small fee and a east was chosen for King Henry the Eighth which was the first Shakespearean play actually staged at Milton College. This is a brief history of how these plays were begun at Milton. Since that time sixteen plays have been successfully presented to an ever-increasing audience. For sixteen yeans the play has held a prominent place among the most important events of commencement week. During these years Milton has built up a reputation for dramatic work which has reached as far as the land of Shakespeare's birth. Milton people have become acquainted with a number of Shakespeare's greatest characters and many students have received val- uable training.

Gradually as time and his- tory passed, departments and their respective editors found their 'way into the "lournal" such as. "Local Paragraphs," ".l'ersonals," "lTxehanges,' "Notes and Clippings." The College lournal was originated and backed by a stock company of stu- dents. Samuel Rlantz served as editor-in-chief for three years, with NV. NV. Clarke acting as business mgnager during almost the entire life of the Journal. After Mr. Plantz had 'left school, this stock company disbanded and gave equal shares of the stock to the Orophilian, Iduna and Philomathean Lyceums. Each Lyceum then elected one representative to act on the Publishing Commit- tee and then arranged for 'a staff. ' Inasmuch as the College journal was published by a few students who had no accommodations -and received .little help and no recognition, the duties -of publication became exceedingly irksome and disagreeable, and it is not surpris- ing, therefore, that after the completion of the sixth volume the College Journal was discontinued in .luly 1883. ' During the years from 1833 until 1899 which constituted the dark age of Review history, there was no press agent representing Milton College. How- ever, in the spring of 1899, students began to realize that if Milton College was to continue to keep rank with other Colleges, she must have some representative publication. Although the failure of t'he 'lournal added weight to very strong opposition, the situation was saved by advance subscriptions of fifty cents and generous advertising, and in the fall of 1899. with Miss Clara Rogers as Editor- in-chief, the first issue of the Milton College Review was printed. At this time the Review was a 12-page, 9x12 monthly affair. It retained the caption of the old College journal and usually printed some pictures perti- nent to the college on its front page. The staff headed the editorials of the sec- ond page and were followed by various departments as News, Lyceums, Alumni, Literary, Athletics, Music, and extensive advertising. As a whole, it was of dis- tinctly creditable literary merit,'and refiected, creditably upon the college. During the next succeeding volumes, the Review changed in size. shape and color, especially the latter, as nearly every tint and hue of the rainbow graced the cover sooner or later. The renaissance of Review history occurred in May of 1913, when agita- tion from students who believed that the Review was not sufficiently fulfilling the requirements of an up-to-date college paper, instigated largely by N. Daland and A. li. Gary, resulted in a proposal to edit the Review weekly instead of monthly as heretofore. During these years, the Review surmounted perplex- ing difficulties, not financially alone, but torturing publication trials. Their printing was done at the junction,--a mile away with a telephone or sidewalk- while ambitious editors waded snow throughout the cruel winter many times a month. The college gave no credit for work done or financial backing, and there were no circulation conveniences whatever. This spring attempt was very successful and the following fall marks the period of modern Review history when the Review -assumed its weekly duties, becoming a newsy, dignified periodical of four four-column pags, usually con- taining besides a literary department and editorials, athletics, news, alumni notes.

The time of the World War was survived with only a small reduction in size. and the Review has finally heeome a well regulated weekly publication, constructive in policy and serving to unite the interests of all who love and honor Milton College.

Once a month during the school year the students of the University of XVis- consin, who are old friends of Milton, either taking post graduate work at Madi- son, or some technical course, gather for a jolly time, to discuss Milton events, Milton's problems, athletic prospects, politics, and other common interests. The club was organized in the fall of 1919 with Harold Rehberg its able president. In the fall and spring the meeting of the club consists of a picnic supper somewhere along the lake shore, and during the winter months this year the members have been meeting at Lathrop Cafeteria, taking trays to a special room. If the suppers thus enjoyed are not well digested, it is not because there is any lack of jollity about the table. George Thorngate. '16, president of the club is always on hand near the head of the line with his wife, Helen Shaw Thorngate, '20, Miss Stephanie Daland, '17, who is an instructor in the XVisconsin Library School, and Miss limma Rogers, '09, secretary of the club, who is instructing and preparing to capture an M. A. in History are close behind, and woe be to Ray McCartney if he is seated nearby. Miss Rogers and Mr. McCartney have a faculty for holding divergent views on most subjects, which becomes the cause of much interesting and friendly argumentation. Mr. McCartney is ably see- onded by his Commerce buddies, David NV. Smith, ex-'21 and Harold Rehberg, ex-'21, both seniors in the course at Madison. The doughty engineers with trays piled high, are represented by the Hillstroni brothers. "Hill," ex-'20, and Clarence, ex-'21, and lirnest l.unda, ex-'21, all juniors in lilectrical flingineering. lflroy Hinkley, "1'link," ex-'18, a senior in the Civil ilingineering course, and Arthur Rabuck, who formerly held sway in M. H. add to the dignity of the table conversation. Lester NV. l'eterson, ex-'12, now studying Chemical Engin- eering, completes the list of engineer-Miltonites. Smiling benignly from the end of the table sits ljrof. F. tl. l-lall, '17. Professor flflall obtained his M. A. re- cently but still presses on to higher degrees. The "Aggie," li. Howard Bond, ex-'21, is present, but perhaps on account of his heaped tray is to be seen rather than heard. Not so Carroll XVhaley, ex-'21, who is extremely popular with the members because of his genial willingness to serve water to the thirsty, hunt up the necessary "condiments," and perform other such menial favors. Lucy Kel- logg. ex-'20, is a busy senior but is often present at the meeting, as is sometimes Marion l-lull, also ex-'20, a senior in the Music Course. .lohn li. Holmes, '20, taking post graduate work in linglish is chairman of the social committees for the club. l'le is assisted by l'aul A. Holmes, ex-'21, a senior in journalism. Robert liarlass, ex-'17, graduates from the Agricultural School this year, as does also Stephen Lawton, ex-'21, the latter from the two-year short course. Harry Talbot, ex-'20, and Geneva Bennett Talbot, ex-'17, are members of the club, as are Harry Pierce, '15, and Mrs. l'ierce. Hoth Harrys are second year Medics, but Talbot expects to stay at XVisconsin to obtain his B. A. next year. In December the club enjoyed a banquet at the Madison Y. M. C. A., at which Prof. il. N. Daland was the guest of honor and gave the members a splen- did address on lfducation. The club is seething with Milton enthusiasm and plans for Milton's progress, and is proud in having been already instrumental in carrying out some practical bits of work for the college. N. O.

'fftttifi-:'f'7 A A A Boys' Polytechnic High School of Riverside, California, writes Prof. john as follows: "I think you would have enjoyed being with ns last summer in the moun- tains, especially the going and coming. Wfe spent most of it at Oak Glen: you know the spot, up 'Potato Canyon, via Yucaipa. with an elevation above the sea of one mile or more. The reason for our being there was that I was acting as Dr. XVells' general roust-about at his camp for tubercular patients. I had planned to go to Rig Bear Valley, or to Idyllvvild up in Mt. San .Iacinto to work for the summer. But Dr. lVells asked if I would help ten days or so in his camp. I said yes, and we packed at once to go. So up we started: the Dr. had some patients and a wagon load of stuff in his big machine, and I drove a little roadster: had a pleasant trip up through the canyon. The road, as you know, lies past Loma Linda, through the rich orange groves of Redlands and the cherry orchards of Yucaipa, and up the canyon to the top of the grade, then half a mile off to the left and up the mountain side to the doctor's place. I-Ie has an acre wooded with fine oak trees. XVe got there about 10 p. m., and, instead of ten days, we stayed nearly all summer, I built seven tent houses of various sizes and styles, and started on a real, full-grown house, but completed only the rear of it, comprising kitchen, bathroom, and laundry. I was architect as well as builder: had a man as helper, Schmidt by name. I-Ie was not a mechanic, but quite adaptable, and we got along Erst rate. Dr.'s family rang'ed from 12 to 22 all summer, and you can imagine that it required some attention to details to keep us all supplied with food, milk, medical attention, not to mention building materials. Schmidt and I used to bring up some scandalous loads on the Ford truck. I made one trip up from Riverside with about 1600 pounds on, consisting of brick. cement, lumber, etc. It is not a very hard climb till the last half mile, and that is pretty steep. The old Ford used to have to work pretty hard, but we always made it. He had a four-speed transmission in it, that gave two lower speeds than the ordinary Ford is capable of: otherwise we could never have hauled such loads. Wie made 'one trip that was quite pleasant. Started down after supper to get a new cook: coasted down to Riverside, got the cook at his house, and then loaded on a miscellaneous lot of stuff all the way from bricks to library books, and turned around and started back up. Fine moonlight night to travel that long smooth road climbing up through blucaipa, where everybody was fast asleep. I-lad a little accident before getting that far, however. There was a box of soap containing 100 bars on top of the load, not secured, and when we rounded a corner near Loma Linda the soap took Flight and landed in the road with a smash that brought the people out from houses- near by to see what was wrecked. Soap was all over the road. Gathered it all up and chucked it into various holes in the load and we went on. Wlhile there's life there's soap, you know. It's a pleasant trip up the canyon by moonlight-everything cool and re- freshing. lVe liked to do most of our hauling at night, as the days were pretty hot. You know the forest fires of these regions: were called out several times during the summer-once a bad one: got caught in the brush and had to crawl out on our stomachs-shirts torn to bits--black as Indians: but it's all in the day's work up in these mountains."

Zinn, 313. who is teaching in the high school at Florence, Colo-- rado. writes as follows: "Pueblo is a typical western city, dusty, smoky. and teeming with Mexicans. as well as other foreigners. It is not a beautiful sum- mer resort like Colorado Springs and Boulder: and one's first impression is not likely to be a favorable one. However, after living there for nearly a year. 1 hnd that it has an interest and even a charm of its own. Here is located unc of the largest steel industries in the world, connected with ,which is a Y. M. C. A. building, with its various activities, which is said to be the finest industrial "Y" in the United States. The Americanization work among the foreigners is very interesting. Until recently Mr. l-larold Stillman had charge of this work. and 1 also had some classes last winter. Pueblo, in spite of its smoky reputation, has some line buildings and a num- ber of large and beautiful parks. They have there a good view of the 11101111- tams. the nearest of which are some thirty miles away. 1 The mountains never cease to be a source of wonder and delight to me. bome who see them for the first time are disappointed, but I cannot understand why they never look twice alike, but are sometimes hazy and far away in the distance: again they loom up as if they were near at hand. XVhen they are near, they are a deep blue: and when they are far away, they are lavender and gray. ,Xs one travels along the road, they seem to be constantly seen at a different angle. About half way to Pueblo today the two shining white Spanish peaks, ninety miles away, suddenly appeared, like two colossal sentinels. At Florence we are surrounded by mountains on three sides, although the nearest range is ten or twelve miles away. Over forty miles from us l'ike's .ljeak lifts its majestic snow-capped summit. looking like a big frosted cone. Sometimes this white cone is a lovely, rosy pink, when the rays of the setting or the rising sun are reficcted on its snowy surface. Florence is a little city of three thousand. quite attractive, and a pleasant place in which to live. XVC have nearly ZOO in the high school, more than a fourth of whom come in from neighboring mining camps. Two large auto busses bring in the most of these pupils daily. These busses are warmed and are yery comfo1'table. The consolidated school is practicable here, as the roads are in excellent condition all winter long. Although the educational standards are not quite equal, l think, to those of lvisconsin, yet we are growing faster, perhaps, than schools in the liast. New high schools and rural schools are being built all about us and there is much agitation and legislation over educational matters. XYe have a line new high school building in Florence, which we hope to occupy within two or three weeks. H. C. BLACK, Ex-'22 Mr. H.

Mr. Black returns next fall and Milton gladly welcomes him back to the Old School on the Hill, as she ever does any of her sons and daughters. V M. H.

EEBBBISQ WBWEH Page One Hundred Fifty-eight A Q A 155. tfiaazafvfsf A Q L ' " V - A Helpful Letter from Mr. Bartholf Fargo, North Dakota. March 19, 1921. Mr. A. L. Pierce. liditor Ifides, Milton. Wfis. . My Dear Sir: I am pleased to learn from a letter received from Miss Catharine Shaw. that Milton is to have an Annual-The Fides. I am also glad to note that pic- tures and sketches of old-time faculty members are to be published. In the last number of the College Review, tMarch IOJ is a partial list of these. May I suggest the names of some others? Very dear to the hearts of alumni and old students who attended Milton College from '79 to '82, was that saintly and scholarly man, Dr. Thomas R. Xklilliams, who was our college president. The last two years l'resident XV. C. XVhitford. of precious memory. was XVisconsin's State Superintendent. QI think F. C. Dunn might have a photoj. I hope dear good Dr. Nliilliams will not be forgotten. Then, too, at that same time on our faculty were those three fine scholarly men: Prof. lfdward Searing. who pre- ceded President Whitford as State Superintendent, and was afterward, for manv years, President of the Mankato tMinn.j State Normal School: Prof. Henry lloty Maxson, who, of all men I have ever known. had the finest classical mind, wonderfully witnessed in t'he most classic features I have ever seeng who for two years after leaving Milton, held a professorship at XVhitewater. and later was pastor of the Tointer Memorial church at Menominee, and, if I mistake not. was the first president of Stout Institute: and Prof. XV. F. Place, a fine scholar and able teacher, who also later entered the ministry. Another one who won a large place in the hearts of college students of that period was .lane C. Bond, w'ho later became Mrs. J. B. Morton, and still lives in Milton. And of course you will not forget those two good and great women, "Aunt Ruth," the honored wife of Pres. Wlhitford, and "Aunt Chloe," the beloved and saintly wlife of "Prof, Albert," the mother of two of the ablest members of Milton's present-day faculty, Prof. A. li. Whitford and Frau C. li. Cran- dall, and l know you will pay due honor to their dear old father, one of the most unassuming and modest, but scholarly men who ever graced any college faculty-Prof. Albert XfVhitford. There were two other people of those days who were very dear to the student body: Mrs. Stannard, who kept a boarding house in the building just west of Goodrich Iflall, now owned by Mr. Davis, and "Aunt Deal" Crandall, tlater Mrs. .Iames lfstesj who ran .a boarding house just across from Mrs. Stannard's. where Date Coon now lives. "Aunt Deal," I understand, is still living and radiating sunshine at Alfred, N. Y. Many of the old timers, I am sure, would like to see the pictures and short: sketches of these two good women in Fides. Wfillis Clarke and Prof. Albert or Mrs. C. li. Crandall could give you dependable information and probably get photos for you. Then, too, W'illis and Wallis Clarke and dear "Uncle Paul" tireen have almost seemed to me inseparably connected with Milton College life, and I would like to see them all littingly remembered. All through the years they have rendered both the college itself unstinted loyalty and the thousands of students, as they have come and gone, unnumbered kindnesses. Then there are our earlier alumni and students, who have gone out from HEBHBISZIEMHEK1 Page One Ilnndretl Fifty-nine .gi v,f 2 ia-fm it 1'fi'.-ta-W. ,-yi' fi-G.

You may put me down for a copy of Fidcs. Wishing you unbounded success, T am very cordially yours. ,ll C. Rartholf, ' 450 South Irving Avenue. Chicago, lll. l2ditor's Note :- It was the aim of the staFf in publishing this year's animal to insert pic- tures of many of the more prominent former faculty members and supporters of our college-. This was announced in the College Review as a feature of the book. It was hoped at the same time that we could sell among the alumni three or four times as many as we have. Since our subscription is less than iirst hoped our expenses are more comparatively. It was found necessary to leave out this added expense although we regretted much to do so. It is the hope of the initial staff that the history of our college will be continued each year, and that it will be more complete and that the pictures of those men- tioned in Mr. Bartholf's letter will be inserted. It is 1nore than is in our power this year to do honor to the memory of all those we so dearly love. This is a task that can only be accomplished by the edition of many volumes. Yet all of the Milton people mentioned in Mr, Bartholf's letter and on the pages of this volume have a most Fitting tribute paid to them when we as students of our loved and cherished institution, when we as children of those who formerly and now are consecrating' their lives to Ciod's service, and are lilling our hearts and minds with truth, love. fidelity and principle. pledge ourselves to follow the path they have shown us, to live a life of service to tiod and humanity and ever cherish, as do they, the llrown and the Hlue. --The lfditor.

Shiba, a japanese, is a junior in College. lle found the ling- lis'h language very confusing and our customs queer when compared to those of the japanese. l-le related some of them in a talk he gave on the program of the Glee Club which made an extended tour this year. Below are quoted a few of the instances which 'he cited. "There are several things that the japanese do, that the Americans do not. For instance, in .lapan the people shave their foreheads and the edges around the eyebrows. The japanese use paper instead of cloth for handkerchiefs: as soon as they get through with blowing their nose, they throw the paper handkerchief away, never keep it in their pocket. The japanese women, if an occasion de- mands, hold the front part of their skirts, while the American women hold the back part. - Shortly after my arrival in America. I went to a toy shop to buy a pop-gun. I picked up a tiny gun and asked the man, 'I-low 1l'lLlCl1?, 'He said something, but I did not understand it. So I asked again. But the man answered the same way. Still I didn't understand. I asked the third time, 'l-low mueh?' He said something very fast. I didn't understand it at all. I became impatient: I pulled out a dollar and a half and put it on the counter and left with the gun in my hand. But the man ran after me. shouting. I-Iowever, the louder he shout- ed, the faster I ran. Finally he gave me up and I got 'home safe. But, what do you suppose I found? I found upon the gun a tiny mark. 25c. Who dares to say the japs can't beat the Americans? When a foreigner comes to this country, he is very much confused with the language that you speak. To quote t'hc words of a poet: 'Our doggone language is all balled up, It puzzles me, I've found, For when they want to raze a house They tear it to the ground. Our doggone language is all balled up, . It often makes me frown, They say a house is burning up When it's really burning down.' In .lapan we say, 'forth and baek,' but you say. 'back and forth.' lJon't we go forth before we come back? You say, 'I'Ie is fast asleepf But how can he be fast asleep when he isn't moving at all? You say, 'It doesn't pay to get sick.' Yet I have to pay every time I get sick. You say, 'I-Ie is tired out and all in.' But, how can he be tired 'out' when he is 'all in.' Your language is queer. You say, 'First he struck him "down" and then he beat him "up',.' On our way to Battle Creek, Mich., we stopped at Chicago. As I entered a large department store, I saw a sign: 'Girls wanted to sew buttons on the second Hoor.' A few years ago as I was walking down a street in San Francisco. I noticed a sign on the front of a building which read as follows: 'Shirts laun- dered in the rearf While in Madison I saw a sign that read as follows: 'Bull- dog for sale, will eat anything, very fond of e'hilclren.' In America we burn coal for fuel, but I suppose the .lfnglish are different. for I saw some time ago in a newspaper a heavy headline: 'English Burning Cork.' They must be going to have a minstrel show over there." 'VVVVV VVVV Page One llunrlred Sixty-four 1-. Qs' ,f'fr"":L' ulfiigvv' T p- W V V V my Q11 X- ' Rf- MM , ,WAF A A A '- 6 v' .

'lfhere has been a general impression for some time that the sort of tights we have been having belong in the society columns, being very gentle, manly. and polished affairs, nobody being hurt. The lighting report of the future may read as follows: Sprigue Vanzandt led with his left and landed squarely on Kid Stuyvesant's wrist watch. "My word," exclaimed the Kid, "that was an extraordinary biff, old podger. lie a bit more conservative. that's a dear." At the end of the third round it was seen that Stuyvesant was becoming exhausted. He dropped his monocle thrice in this round and his science was not at all up to form. He foozled his approach several times and got to his man only once when he slapped Vanzandt sharply on the elbow with his nose. l-lis seconds rushed in with the smelling' salts just in time. The fourth round was Stuyvesant's by a wide margin. Once when Van- zandt dropped his walking stick it looked as though he would surely kiss the canvass. XVhile he was having tea at the end of this round with a couple of society ladies, he expressed himself as being fatigued. Stuyvesant had broken his pocket looking glass during the round. ln the fifth and last round there were cries of bravo when Kid Stuyvesant was declared winner after having knocked Vanzandt's cigarette out of the latter's mouth with a vicious right hook. Vanzandt's white dress tie was sadly disarranged at the end of the fight. Stuyvesant's hair had to be newly combed and pomaded before he was lit to go on the street. One button was missing from Sprigue Vanzandt's spats. Dunk- bolts, the former light weight champion of New jersey, created a tremendous sensation and was arrested for trying to enter Madison Square Garden in a plain business suit. -The Tatler.

Milwaukee Street, Janesville, Wisconsin lYhen every one was assembled, the bride and groom appeared. Terentia was attended by an older woman, called the pronuba, who corresponds with the matron of honor in weddings today. The wedding dress was a long straight robe called the tunica oregilla. This was fastened at the waist by a woolen girdle. The veil was of a flame colored material, and fell in loose folds to the bottom of her dress. Un her head was a wreath of Howers which she herself had gathered. according' to the Roman custom. Upon the entrance of tiaius and Terentia, the ceremony began. They joined hands in the presence of ten witnesses and Terentia repeated the words. "Quando tu tiaius, ego Gaia," a mere formula which was always repeated by the bride. A sacrifice was then made to jupiter, and prayers were said to Juno. the goddess of marriage. and to Tellus, the god of the country. After the conclusion of the ceremony came the wedding feast. the "cena nuptialisf' which lasted until evening. This feast was as magnificent as pos- sible. The linal course consisted of wedding cake served on bay leaves. After the feast was overi Terentia was formerly taken to her new home. This ceremony was called the deductio and was essential to the validity of the marriage. livery one. whether invited to the wedding or not, might form a part of the procession, and so while the feast was going on within. a large crowd had gathered outside with torch-bearers and Hute players at the head. As soon as the feast was over, the hymenaeus was sung and the procession started for the home of tiaius Metellus. XYhen the house was reached, Terentia wtound the door posts with wool, a symbol of her work as future mistress of the household. Then she was lifted carefully over the threshold in order to avoid any chance of falling' as she entered the house for the first time, a thing which was always feared as an evil omen. The doors were closed against the general crowd. and only the invited guests were allowed to enter. On the following' day, the second feast was given in the new home. and a series of feasts followed, given in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Ciaius Metellus. Amy C. Green, '23.

NWC have very many volumes of interesting and appealing stories, actual or fictitious, in the Chinese literature serving to illustrate the four points of the nation's ethics, and they will show the profound interest taken by the philosophers of the past in the development of an ethical and moral consciousness of the nation. However, some of them invariably take on more or less the nature of spirit- ualism, and go so far as into the world. of gods and spirits. and they are conse- quently, from our Christian point of view, nothing but ignorance and super- stition. Hut when we consider that these stories were written long before Rob- ert Morrison ever touched China's shore, and that there was no religion at all among the Chinese scholars of the past, it will seem just natural and logical that they should, in their strife for the betterment of morality, have construed a spir- itual world of their own ideas in order to satisfy their souls and also those of their fellowmen. Furthermore, the metaphysical principle is also well shown here that the belief in the existence of a supernatural being exists among all thinking beings, whatever form may the supernatural being be supposed to as- sume, may be it may be the Master of creation of Christianity, the Great Spirit of the Indians, the tire, and sun, or the sacred cattle of the ancient Greeks. And lf is this sort of a story I am going to tell. In a little village somewhere away in Shantung. there is a well-sized family of four, father, mother, and two children. The children are half brothers, be- cause as soon as the elder one was born, the mother died, and the father married again. To this second wife the younger one was born. The dad was a con- scientious and goodness-to-honest man, and impartial to his children, but mama -Uh, that's different. The elder brother was called Ting Fung. and the younger. Ting Ling. To Mama, Ting Ling was as sweet as honey and honeycomb, but Ting Fung, was to put it mildly, far worse than a bottle of carbolic acid. In Mama's prophetic eye, Ting Ling was bound to be a great leader and a high officer. He was to climb to the very top of the ladder of fame, and carry home glory and honor. But Ting Fung, what could he do, what would he be? Mama shook her head thrice, and with a look of contempt and self-satisfaction. slowly but assuredly predicts that heill be mighty lucky if he could someday get a job as a janitor. or a doorkeeper, or possibly as servant. She professed she was sorry for the boy, but could no nothing for him whose miserable future career was due to inherited character and to predestined fate. Ting Ling was dressed well, fed well, and had anything and everything that money could buy. Old clothes and rags were for the unfortunate motherless lad, who went about with an empty stomach during the twenty-four hours of the day. Dad was worried about the situation, but inside her jurisdiction silence was the only pol- icy open to him. I-lowever, parental partiality did not affect in any means the brotherly love between the two lads. Ting Ling thought the whole world of his elder brother. and his brotherly love was returned. Although a little kid, Ting Ling knew well the partiality of his mother, and in every way he tried to enlighten her. lle made his unfortunate brother feel happy as far as he could. and indeed that poor lad would have run away from home if not for this loving kid brother. One evening, after a day of hard work, Ting Fung failed to bring home as large a load of wood as he usually did. As he stepped into the barn and was un- loading the little wood he got, his mother came up and with a cold look and ai hollow voice, deliberately said, Ulflshewl You out all the day, and brought home just this handful of wood.

How- ever his brother continued to make him go back, but no amount of persuasion could avail upon Ting Ling. So the two brothers remained in the woods working. But alas! the fatal moment was approaching. As the boys were working there, from the jungles on the mountain top a hungry tiger rushed down and attacked Ting Ling, the youngest in the bunch. He carried this poor little thing away in his mouth. Ting Fung ran after the beast, but his effort was in rain. Finally the tiger tCfontinued on page 2l6j J. S. FIFIELD LEO H.

XVith his brother gone, and gone in such an unexpected and sad way. Ting Fung became desperate, .and buried his axe in his own breast. Regaining consciousness Ting Fung found himself at home, and his dad at the bedside.. His dad was informed of the accident by the boys who brought Ting Fung back home. Upon seeing his wounded son regaining consciousness. the father was a little relieved. But the mother lost the only son she had, and raised the w'hole house on fire. She blamed Ting Fung for taking her son into the woods, and insisted that he was responsible for her son's death. The fatal wound he had on the breast. and also the thousand and one blames his mother laid on him for the accident were too much for the desperate lad, and he for a second time collapsed. ' The spirit of the poor lad bade farewell to the house, and out he went in search of his lost brother. On, onward he pursued his journey, but his lost brother still seemed far away. To his surprisef he met the spirit of a dead friend, and after some hearty hand shaking, he told him of the mission of his journey. His friend sympathetically offered to guide him on his way and to help him what he may be able to in the search. Now with his friend guiding the way, these two instantly went to a city where most of the spirits of the lost one are found. livery street and every corner they searched, but Ting Ling's spirit was not there. Tired and disappointed, they were just about to start back, when suddenly the God of Mercy came, and everybody on the street pros- trated himself, begging for blessing. From the cup of blessing. the goddess, with her lingers fair, sprinkled a few drops of the water, and in some mysterious way one of them landed exactly on the would on Ting Fung's breast. Instant-ly he felt his wound cured. After a vain search, Ting Fung linally got home. VVhen he regained eon- sciousness, the afflicting pains in the wound were all removed. Three days after, Ting Fung recovered from the sickness, and since he failed to find his lost brother in the spiritual world, he is now ready to start a search in this physical world. After having received God-speed and blessings from his dad, now we find our poor fellow on his way to whatever place the wind might bring him to. As he proceeded farther and farther, his purse became lighter and lighter. and Finally he found himself identified, a tramp in a far-away city, no relative and no friends. One day as he was tramping along the street, an officer' sitting in a mag- nificent sudan chair, passed by. Somehow the officer caught a glimpse of the poor tramp, 'and as he passed he persistently turned back and looked at the Ting Funglwith suspicion. At last he came back to the tramp, and demanded his name. On hearing his name, the officer was thrown' overtaken by the impulse of emotion, and embracing Ting Fung, he wept. It was no other than Ting Ling. - XVhen the tiger took him, as he afterward told Ting Fung, the tiger was almost run down by his brother, and left him on the way without any hurting him. A passer by .picked him up, and adopted him for his son. A happy reunion followed, and after a few months, they heard from home that their mother died from an accident. ' Theodore M.
