That man was Cal West, who so gallantly gave his life in France in the cause of liberty. Now there are two college heroes, two men who have shown them- selves to be distinctively Milton men. The one whose name is now coupled with that of Cal West is Rolly Sayre. True, he did not die in the trenches, but Rolly was so truly a son of Milton that he stands out in bold relief. To him this book has been dedicated, and fitly so. And the story of his life, though it is not full of the thrill of daring adventure, has the thrill of things well done and worth while. Rolland Moses Sayre was born in lVIilton, March 13, 1902. He was the second son of Mr. and lVIrs. George O. Sayre. His early schooling was obtained in the old Six Corners School, from which have come so many Milton students. After leaving grammar school he attended Milton High School. Here he proved himself to be an able athlete, going in for all sports supported by the school. In his Freshman year he won himself a place on the baseball team. In his Junior year he gained a berth on the basketball squad, proving to be a star. At the same time he was maintaining a good average in his studies and taking an active part in the work of the Boy Scouts. Vl'hen his Senior year was half completed, hel voluntarily left school in order to pro- vide for the family during the sickness of his father, who had undergone an operation. In so doing he gave up graduating with his class, as well as taking part in basketball and other sports. He completed his high school work in Union High School the fol- lowing year. Rolly entered Milton College the following year, with the class of '25, Immedi- ately upon entering school, he began taking part in the various student activities. He tried out for football., winning a berth as a substitute half-back. Ar the same time he took a position on the staff of the Review. When the basketball season opened he al- most immediately won himself the pivot position on the team, developing into one of the steadiest players Milton ever has had., In baseball and track as well, he proved to be of great value to the school. But it was not in athletics alone that Rolly Sayre proved himself to be of sterling value, for he had developed the full rounded life. In 1915 he confessed allegiance to his God and Master, and from that time forth he lived as nearly the Christ-like life as it is possible for humans to attain., Not only was it his intention to do the right thing at all times, but he carried it out in a way that won the respect and envy of every one. This was the thing that gave him the influence over the boys of the town when he became assistant SCOLltm2lStCI'. This iti was that made him so popular, and such a power for good among the boys at the Phantom Lake Y. lil. C. A. Camp, where he spent his last summer. Indeed, the Phantom Square might well be used as a symbol for his life. Rolly took an active part in the work of his church, and of the Y. M. C. A. At the time of his death he was a member of the Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, and was doing muchtfor the good of the HY". He attended the Geneva Conference last summer, along with three other Milton fellows, and was fired with a desire to make things about him better. Rolly was injured during the class scrapping which took place the first week of school. Apparently feeling that the injury was slight, he took no notice of it. How- ever, he was finally forced to his bed and was later taken to the hospital. The end came on October 1, 1922. The whole community found it hard to believe that such a spirit could have passed away. His loss is irreparable. ..,. ,-.-. 1 -.-- ..... . fa. .

Daland, Cast a spell of gloom and sorrow over the life of the College. However, with the burden of his task upon their shoulders, the faculty and the students, under the leader- ship ol Acting President Whitford, have endeavored to "carry onug with his ideals as their guide, they have striven to make Milton College all that he wished it to be. A gradually increasing registration has marked the last two years. In the year 1921-ZZ the total number reached one hundred twenty-eight, while in the present year it has exceeded one hundred forty. There have been a few changes in the teaching staff of the College. In the fall of 1921, changes were made in the Biology, Physics, and Education Departments, Miss Amey Van Horn filling the position of instructor in Biology, A. B. Crofoot, in Physics, and Dr. C. A. Mohr, of California, heading the Education Department. In the present year, these three members of the facul.ty have been replaced by Miss Ruth Stillman, in the Biology Department, by C. F. Oakley in the Physics Department, and by Dr. Edwin Shaw, Professor J. N. Daland, and R. A. Buell, principal of the local high school, in the Department of Education. Under these competent instructors and the permanent faculty, the scholastic work of the institution has been kept up to a high standard. Late in the fall of 1921, a memorial service was held in memory of the late Presi- dent Daland. Dr. Edwin l-I. Lewis of Chicago gave the principal address of the evening, and in addition to this there were many shorter tributes of love, admiration, and reverence in behalf of numerous organizations such as the Student Body, the Board of Trustees, the State Association of College Presidents, the Village, and many others. Through the kindness and generosity of Mr. N. O. Moore, '03, who is the head of the Printing Department in the Polytechnic High School, Riverside, California, the various addresses and tributes given at the memorial service were compiled and printed in the form of a Memorial Booklet. The booklet was distributediamong the faculty, students, and alumni of the college. During the past two years the student activities have been progressing unusually well. A new era in Milton College athletics was started in the fall of 1921. For the first time in the history of the College, through the efforts of the Alumni Athletics Board, a full time athletic coach and physical director, George H. Crandall, was secured. Along with the new coach came a revision of the entire athletic program. Football was introduced for the first. time in many years, and track and tennis were addul to the list of intercollegiate sports. Although the first two years of the new pro- gram have not brought many winning teams, there is no cause for discouragement, because Coach Crandall, with his consistent ideals of good sportsmanship and clean athletics, has built a strong foundation for the future. B'1llt0l'l,S forensics have also been advancing in the last two years. The debate schedule was increased from three intercollegiate debates in the season of 1922 to six debates this season. This schedule includes some of the strongest colleges in this section of the United States. Upon the invitation of the State Oratorical Association, Milton College has become a member of that organization. H. R. Sheard was the first repre- sentative from Milton to enter the state contest. n Q , - ' Q ' X Nor leger in the list of progressing college activities is music.

H. Stringer. A very noticeably increased interest in the four literary societies has been observed since 1921. lvleetings have been carried on with greater regularity than formerly, and a friendly, though keen, rivalry has existed between them. The four societies recommended that 11 Midsufzzzzzez' Nighfs Dream be chosen for the annual Shake- spearean play. The performance of this play was a pronounced success in every Way. An important step has been taken in the organization of the Student Body. What formerly comprised the Athletic Association, the Oratorical Association, and the For- ward Movement have been merged into a single organization which has taken over their functions together with all of the other student activities, such as the publication of the Review and the Fidcfs. A new institution, the Midwinter All-college Booster Banquet has been originated, and its success in the past two years has insured its per- manency upon the College Calendar. At this banquet, the students divid-e themselves into groups according to states or communities and rival each other in originating plans for boosting Milton.

Tall, black clothes, fur cap, a long scarf, arms swinging wide from the body, a silent whistle on his lips, and a twinkle in his eye. Sometimes he would ride in the high buggy with Aunt Chloe. His was an ideal life, a combination of college teacher and country gentleman, educating minds for a vocation and cultivating garden truck as an avocation. Correct mathematics and successful horticulture require the same thoroughly honest principles. He dwelt in thoughtful moodg he listened while others talked, a man of but few wordsg always patient, never impatient, never losing that fine even temperg a methodi- cal doer of the word. He formed ideals by practice rather than by precept. His was a practical Christianity. He used geometry as a memory training and knew it so well that a false statement would rouse him from a nap and bring the "hem" of dry humor. fCm1li111u'd on page 282 .,., ,V.: .... , , .,,1 A my y. -. fm , J. .1 5 ..z!1l.e. sn.,-1-V grins., .V 'vim faeiiilll ffm.--as M- -' M19 - ffsfwf ma it Page Tfwmlfy-.six .a i W"3f5:'i"i'i"'fi!i A fi' :lf':Q 1 1.094 fa-1 .-10.5. fa., "elf: ng A ',Q,5.' vw 1 ge!-' .5 1 -40.1. r 1 w 'rw .Ts 1-'-'slr 91: 'fu u - im- - ALQBIERT' ROGERS CRANDALL, lN'I.A., Pl-LD., SC.D. l,I'0fl'X.S'0I' ElIll'I'ifIl.Y of Nrzturuf llixlory 111111 Physiology Wliezicvex' 1 hear someone declaiming of the chasm between the "Scientist and the Christian" there arises before my mind a picture of f'Prof. A.

Without his untiring labor, un- selfish devotion, and conserving wisdom, our College would have had a short life. As a scholar he was careful and thorough, not showy and specious. As a teacher he was unassuming and mild, but earnest, successful, and inspiring. As a friend he was sincere, gentle, and sympathetic. As a man he was modest and humble,'a home- loving, gentle, true husband and father, of strong mind, big heart, true faith, willing hands, great in deeds and small in profession, touched not by ambition, serving with- out praise, uncorrupted by flattery, devoted to duty, loved for what he has done, and respected because he did llOt as others. His was not to shine in prominence, but to ionize others like the invisible power house. "Tlzf'rr"x nothing so kindly as A'il1dlll'S.Y, And nothing so royal as truth." If you would know more, remember the First Psalm. H.T.P. '96. ALBERT ROGERS CRANDALL fContinued from page 271 not like that of the old Greek Teachers with their disciples. As he walked, he talked -not in long scientific terms or Latin nomenclature- but with loving intimacy of the birds, the grasses, the trees, a cloud that passed, a mushroom in our path, a Hash- ing butterfly. It paid to stick close to his elbow, to suit your pace to his slower foot- steps. Not so much knowledge did we gain, as appreciation and a habit of observation. He would rather have a student interested in a subject than know the facts of it. He is remarkable in that in spite of the decided opinions that are inevitable to a strong will, his mind has not "set", He has never stopped growing, and whether he may agree or not, he sympathetically understands the trend of present day thought. He has always been a student of the. times and interprets events with remarkable clarity. I remember in 1914 he had a grasp of the significance of the European situation, the keenness of which later events verified. Best of all, Prof. A. R. is interested in people. I do not know of a more pleasant way of spending an afternoon than to listen to the charming stories of his experiences among the mountain folk of the South. You somehow feel that he is interested in you, too, and what you are doing, and when you come back to Milton with a new specimen, or a newly acquired husband, or a "wonderful" baby, you are sure to want Prof. A. R. to see it and exclaim over it with you. H.S.T. ,20 .tml sum., 4110:-1 .H .steely A .fa xl? 11: are Page Tfwenty-eight FEDE i Board of Trustees Office Expires in 1923 E.

The construction of sev- e1'al new buildings, including a new dormitory for ladies, a music hall and chapel, and a new library building, was suggested. Plans for a new athletic field back of the gymnasium are already beginning to be realized. Work of clearing the ground for the track, and the construction of four new tennis courts was begun last autumn. VVhen the sons and daughters of a college are as willing to give of their time and money as those of Milton do, in an effort to advance their school, that college is sure to progress. For that reason lVIilt0n College cannot be held. down. A SONG OF THE BELL By the worn and winding trail, Where the big Chief Tay-e-hedah Led his band of dusky warriors long agog Oft we strolled our way along While the woods took up the song, And the gentle voice is calling sweet and low, CHORUS: Oh, I hear the echoes ringing From the belfry on the hill, And the song inspires my heart to do and dareg . Calling me to love and duty, Calling me to faith and prayer, For the bell is ringing, ringing, ringing still. -When the autumn days were on, And the brilliantsummer shone Where the Milton hillside glory met the sky, Voices whispered in the breeze, While I sat beneath the trees And communed with master minds of days gone by. Now my hair is turning gray, For those days have passed awayg But their memory lingers sweet and sweeter yet, And my rireside's evening cheer A Seems to bring old Milton near, And the faces which my heart can ne'er forget. 3' ' "'i2"" Z1 Page Thirty-tfwo 'tl N , r . .X ,af 4 - W 4 f H f- .

Page Thirty-.fix F' DES Sembr Class History, 1922 Many moons ago, when the Great Spirit looked over the nations, he decided that it was time to send messengers in search of a class of 1922 for Milton College. These messengers fared forth upon their missions. One spirit went to Ohio, another to Min- nesotag still others to Michigan and to the wilds of northern Wisconsin. Two un- usually adventurous ones went to far China and Japan, and the bravest of all journeyed to Janesville, where he won both a poet and an athlete. In 1918, under the cloud of war, these messengers brought the class together. Many adventures awaited these meek Freshmen and strange were the military ordersg nevertheless there were exciting escapes from the Sophomores, and pleasant secret parties. In their Sophomore year, they learned that revenge was sweet and professors sour. Some of the class Went away to earn a living, the rest remained, gradually grow- ing less green. When they became Juniors, a preacher joined their ranks. Alas! He could not stay long, but he left a little dignity behind. Consequently, when his class- mates encountered the sorrows and toils of the Senior year, they bore it with fortitude- part of the time. . In June, the four happy, fruitful years were over, and the class scattered. Nine became teachers, one a nurse, while the rest went in search of more knowledge at other schools, but all are looking forward to the time when the messengers come again to call them back to Milton College.

Senior Class History, 1923 In the fall of 1919, when the little old town of Milton began to be roused from its summer calm by the rumbling of carts and wagons loaded with trunks and by the rattle and prattle of returning students there was unusual excitement over the pros- pective Freshman, class. It was rumored that there were to be about sixty Freshmen. However, some of these Freshmen must have been lost on the way and so did not arrive until a year later. Others, perhaps, not noticing that there was a town here, were carried on and landed by mistake at Carroll or the University of Wisconsin. At any' rate, when they were duly registered and lined up for roll call, there were only thirty-four full fledged Freshmen and five special students. Now these Frosh failed, in one respect, to live up to what is always expected of Frosh. To the great disappointment of the Sophs they showed little or no signs of the timidity and greenness usually manifest in Freshmen. Of the thirteen men of the class, nine had been members of the S. A. T. C. at Milton, two had served in the U. S. Army, and one had attended the University of Wisconsin for a part of a year. Only one, then, came fresh from high school. All this experience and worldly wisdom of the gentlemen members of the class had its inliuence over the entire class and quite eclipsed its verdure. The year began with class scraps, of course. The Frosh successfully evaded the Sophs and held their first party at Rock River without molestation. In both. the u'n- organized night skirmishes and the olificial class scrap the Frosh were victorious. They were the first class in several years who had earned the right to dispense with the "emerald top-piece", As is customary with underclassmen, they were full of "pep" and class spirit. This class spirit, as manifested by numerous parties, became so alarming that the powers deemed it necessary to add an amendment to the constitution, limiting the num- ber of parties any class might hold, to one each. month. At the opening of the basket-ball season, the Frosh again covered themselves with glory by winning the inter-class tournament. Two of the men, Paul Hemphill and George Babcock, made the first squad of the college team. Another honor was won for the class by Arthur lylills, who was elected editor of the Review in his Freshman year. The most important class functions of the Sophomore year were the all night theater party-Wiener roast-flag raising affairs of class scrap week and the dinner party fContinucd on Page 465 Page Forty-Ifwo X x V xx X E S X S E FIDES SHEARD DAVIS MIKKELSEN Class of 1924 ,II:NIoR CLASS OFFICERS , PRESIDENT . .....

INGI.Is The Class of 192-1, with forty-two members, entered Milton College September 23, 1920. The original organization of the class was effected at a wiener roast held at "Kids Pond" at daybreak on the twenty-ninth. The following officers were elected at this time: President, Allison Skaggsg Vice President, Lowen Merrillg Secretary- Treasurer, Gladys Hulettg Cheer Leader, Bruce Thorngateg Class Advisor, Professor W. D. Burdick. After several hectic days of guerilla warfare with the Sophomores, marked by a number of long-distance walks by several unfortunate members of both classes, as well as an impromptu flag scrap after chapel one morning, came the official class rush. III the classic encounter the husky Freshmen came off victorious, winning the right to go through their first year without wearing green caps. Friendships begun during the hostilities were cemented at a picnic held at '11aylor's Point, Lake Koshkonong, at which the Class of 1924- was entertained as guests by the Class of 1923. In the inter-class basketball tournament of that year, the Frosh team, minus the services of Carroll Hill, wlIo had a broken linger, landed in third place. They lost a hard-fought game to tlIe Seniors, 16-14, which gave second place to tlIe latter. The issue of the Review containing the final scores of the tournament was the "Green and White" Freshman issue. It bore the date' of November 16, 1920, and was edited by Lowen Merrill. rig , . ,, -. .lib Ha- --1.1 .,..

Another "celebration party" was held April 25, 1921, at the home of Katherine Maxson, the occasion being the dual victory of the Freshman debaters over the Carroll College Freshmen. The following fall, the class rush-this time a Hag rush-was won by the cohorts of '2-I-. Greatly outnumbered by the invading Frosh, the Sophs successfully defended their banner, which Haunted from the peak of a twenty-foot telephone pole-ot which had been applied a generous coating of grease. Consequently the Frosh wore green caps until Thanksgiving and again from the spring vacation until the end of school. The class officers of this year C1921-'22D elected at a wiener roast held at Storr's Lake were: President, Clyde Arringtong Vice President, H. Richard Sheardg Secre- tary-Treasurer, Lois Atkinsong Class Advisor, Professor L. H. Stringer. This year, the cares and worries of Soph-Frosh strife did not bother the worthy Juniors, and they felt safe in holding an election and announcing their class officers during the first week of school. Those officers are: President, H. Richard Sheardg Vice President, Pauline Davis, Secretary-Treasurer, Harold Mikkelseng Class Advisor, Professor D. N. Inglis. A Hallowe'en party was held October 30, 1922. Gathering in the Y. W. C. A. room, the trembling victims were dragged through the dark and cavernous haunts of the spirits by a ghostly apparition. The harrowing experiences of this trip made a restful visit to the spacious room of the Philomathean Lyceum quite welcome. After spending about an hour here in playing games, the guests were conducted by a circuit- out route to the home of Dr. G. E. Crosley, where a lunch was served. The remain- der of the evening was spent seated around the open fireplace singing college songs and telling Hallowe'en stories. Of its original strength of forty-two members, only sixteen remaing but ten addi- tional recruits have joined the Class of l92-l- from time to time, making the present enrollment twenty-six, exactly equal to the number who have dropped out. Here's to good old '24-l ' Senior Class History, 1923 ' 1 flfontifzlzed from Page 425 given in honor of Paul Hemphill and Chloe Van Horn, both members of the class, just previous to their marriage. a Out of the thirty-four Freshmen in l9l9, eight had dropped out by the beginning of the Sophomore year, nineteen more by the beginning of the Junior, and four more by the beginning of the Senior year. Thus only three of the present Senior class, Amie Greene, Elma Mills, and Arthur Mills, were members of the original famous class of '23. The other eight Seniors have joined the ranks since the first year. The class of '23 is a curious mixtureg its members are of widely varying talents. It has one professional athlete, one journalist, one ordained minister, and two married men. The rest, although not especially distinguished, have filled places in the various musical and literary organizations of the college, and it is reasonable to hope that in the future they may contribute still more to the honor of the class of '23 and of their Alma Mater.

BURDICK In the fall of 1921 forty-seven new students registered in Milton College. Up to that time this was the largest class in the history of the school. It is not too much to say that it was, and still remains, the most lively and peppiest bunch on record. The class roll included the names of twenty-eight men and nineteen women. On the last ,day of registration the Frosh received their initiation into the delight- ful informal social life of Milton 'at a social given by the Christian Endeavor Society of one of the local churches. The following night hostilities between Frosh and Sophs commenced with the kidnapping of three Frosh. Retaliations were made in kind. Saturday night the youngsters bagged a goodly numlter of Sophomores as they left the lyceum meetings. Sunday afternoon they met secretly in Plumb's Nursery and completed their class or- ganization by electing Rolland Sayre as the head of the class. The other officers were: Vice President, Otto Dillnerg Secretary, Oma Pierceg Treasurer, Glee Ellis: Class Advisor, Instructor A. B, Crofoot. That night the Frosh barricaded themselves at the Boarding Club. Attacks by the Sophomores were routed, and several of their number were made captives. Monday night the Sophomores discovered that they had important engagements outside Milton. None of them could be found. Tuesday afternoon the classes mixed in the oHicial contest on the Village Green. In this contest Page Forty-eight e ff iffy 5-.. LZYJZAE AQ' Clif' .L 9 as : --:s s 4 if 1 -. -,vm-.Q H-viii., " ' L ..

F DES the Sophs were the victors, it being thus determined that the Frosh should wear the conventional green caps. During the third week of school the Freshmen published the annual Green Num- ber of the Review. A class which was not adaptable and peppy could not have per- formed this task so well on such short notice. On Tuesday evening of the following week the Sophomores entertained at a wiener roast held at Storr's Lake. Here the hatchet was buried and the classes united in the serious work of advancing the interests of the school. It was on this evening that some of the Freshman boys were given their first experience in "snipe hunting." It was not until school had been under way six weeks that the Frosh received the green caps which had been promised them. All the men wore the caps, there were no slackers. The girls followed the custom of wearing one white and one black stocking for the specified time. On Saturday' evening, December 4-, the Frosh repaid the hospitality of the Sopho- mores with a party at which the oflicial class refreshments, cider and doughnuts, were served. On several other occasions the Frosh threw aside dull care and succumbed to the seductive attractions of cider and doughnuts. The wearers of the Green and VVhite displayed their athletic superiority when they overwhelmingly defeated the 'upper classes in the annual indoor track meets, for both men and women. One morning late in April the illustrious class felt cosmic urge of springg there- fore they arose early in the gray dawn and hiked to Clear Lake, where they enjoyed a camp breakfast. As the rest of the year passed by the Frosh had their full part in the many activi- ties of the school. Finally came Commencement Week, when they parted for the sum- mer after an all-day picnic held at Big Pond. At this picnic officers were elected for the following year. The ranks of the class were thinned somewhat when school began the following year, but they still remained the same peppy bunch. The only difference was that the members of the Class of 1925 were now known as Sophomores. The excitement of the class scrapping and the gaiety of the new year were greatly obscured by the death of a dear friend and classmate, Rolland Sayre. Words cannot express the grief and sense of loss felt by the class. The usual routine of duties interspersed with social activities has been carried on this year, but through it all there has been felt this shadow. With the one sad exception, the Sophomore year has been a very successful one for the Class of 1925. With the same fighting spirit which had carried them to success in the Freshman year, the athletes of the class went into the Basketball Tour- nament and the Inter-class Track Meet to win, and they succeeded. The girls were only slightly less fortunate. They lost the Basketball Tournament, but more than made up for that by their victory in the Inter-class Track Meet. iw- if if :az lf! -i-filf 520: ll H' J" -1155 -Z Page Fifty I ii Q N l L 1:::: i I """""W ,+ ti.-'ID 1, 7-F P 1 M U 4, ...J l 'r I I Wx ge? 099 me ' av KT?

G. lVIERTON SAYRE The class of 1926 needs no praise, its actions speak for it. ln the first place, no one can accuse this class of being hopelessly, inexcusably "gre-en". In fact, it is rather proud of its green aspect. This denotes modesty. Unlike the Sophomore who fools himself into believing he is wise, or the Junior who thinks he is wise, or the Senior Cahemlj who knouuv he is wise, the Freshman admits that he still has something to learn. . In the second place he can win much and not grow conceited, and can lose much without despairing of future possibilities. He has demonstrated that already. Such is the character of this classy now let us see what it has accomplished. First came the election of offioersg Leland Hulett was chosen for president, Frances Babcock for vice president, Doris Holston for secretary, and Merton Sayre for treas- urer. Mr. C. F. Oakley is the class advisor. In the class scrap the Frosh forced the Sophs to an extra event by winning a de- cisive victory in the sack-rush. Many of the Freshmen were members of the football squad. Kepler, Chadsey, Blacke, and Bentz received six-inch "lVI's". Du.ring the basketball season, several Freshmen were on the first squad. Hinkley was awarded a six-inch "NI", and BT. Sayre and Burdick won four-inch "M's". Page Fifly-ifwo w 2 Q N E1 H-Z Q L b S Ia .04 ,I T"Z sig-'vs g 50255 iiktfll' 5. .f5v, 4l,: ,- a -.raw "FIX '11 -:ww 1- aeqlf fr- 311523- png..

FIDESE The Frosh girls were busy during the basketball season, Geneva Lowth, Ruth Moody, Rose Gray, and Glenys Townsend winning places on the first team. The "Freshies" basketball team placed second in the inter-class tournament. They defeated the Juniors 14-2 and the Seniors 12-8. The Sophomores nosed them out in a fast, hard fought game by the score of 10-9. The Sophs also won from the Frosh in the inter-class track meet 60-56. It was exciting and interesting throughout. This meet brought to light some likely candi- dates for the college track team. The Frosh debatcrs met th-e Carroll College Freshmen and divided the honors even- ly with them. The affirmative team won at home 2-0, While the negative team lost by one point at Waukesha. Only one judge was present on account of illness and weather conditions. Although at the writing the track, tennis, and baseball seasons are yet to come, it seems probablethat the Frosh will do their best, as they have done thus far, for the sake of Milton College. APRIL April am I-physician for your ills, I bring my potions from the teeming hills. I'll fill your veins with redbud bloom, I'll call the rain to wash away your gloom, The place of violets, purpling all the field, And make you lithe as yonder poplar bough, Bending above the glowing hilltop now, And fan your fevered face with this cool breeze, Awaking all the late catalpa trees, And of my best, to make you well, l'll bring A pulsing, glad new heart-the heart of Spring.

DAVIS SUMMERS MILLS At a meeting of the students of the College, November 17, 1921, it was voted to Ofililnize the Student Body of bdilton College. This action followed the reading of 11 resolution which had been passed upon by the Student Council. The resolution Qllllecl for an organization of the students to be the lVIilton College Student Body. lhls organization was to take up the work of the Athletic and Oratorical Associations illltl the Forward Nlovement, in addition to such important activities and problems as the iVIilton College Review, the Fides, class scraps, and alterations of the student tax. 35 Cfltnmittee composed of H. C. Black, bliss Dorothy hdaxson, and Prof. W. D. 3lll'LllClC was appointed to draw up a constitution and make plans for the organization. The need for such an organization was keenly felt when it was shown that class fCfflPS, the student tax, and even the College Review and Fides were under the author- lty of none of the existing bodies. These important problems were allowed, and even forced, to take' care of themselves. The class scraps were, for this reason, conducted in an unsatisfactory manner. The Forward Niovement usually took charge of the llifffii' 7F"'f9'i'S ,-'W'-Pi'1'5 .wr--1' rw .3 'fr'-of :wa "S 1' ' ' ma--t 0 at U :" - n z 'tt 7f'?.fff 1-f-.lm 5-ifllvi E--QM K-r....m 1. :-Wlrlri rmQf,v. -4- kwa? at fl-Hrligil fB,.1Qq.x1.,--,'i1 If :4.i'i,ui 'ft-Q5 .T Shaadi 'iiyiiiiw-: iii Page Fifty-,iw F DES student publications, but this work was not in the scope of that particular body. It was also found that thc various organizations did not function efficiently in them- selves aside from the load of other responsibilities that came under no particular head. The many officers of the various associations made centralization and efficiency impossible. Business was carried on poorly and conflicts were common. The proposed constitution, drawn up by the committee, was duly posted and on December 14- was put before the students for a vote. After consideration the consti- tution was found to be suitable and was accepted. Perhaps the purposes and aims of the Student Body are best expressed in the preamble to the constitution, which is as follows: "We, the students of Milton College, in order to form a more efficient and a more centralized organization of student activities, do hereby ordain and establish this constitution." It is the belief of all that the new organization is functioning as well or even better than predicted, ' STUDENT CONTRIBUTORS TO THE FIDISS. Art-G .E. Van Horn, Wilhelmina Botsford, Dora Burdick, E.

Then it is that ldun draws near and whispers. She opens her arms and welcomes the girls into her lyceum room--the lyceum room that is presided over by the goddess of youth and springtime.

In the fall of 1921, the ldunas enjoyed with the new girls a progressive supper. This year the entertainment took the form of an informal banquet in the Iduna room. The new girls have proved enthusiastic ldunas, taking part in the programs and assuming responsibility. lVIuch fun was derived from the recent waffle supper, and with the proceeds a beautiful and much needed floor lamp was supplied. For a recent meeting of the Iduna Lyceum, the alumnae prepared the program. This was greatly enjoyed by the present members, and showed to them that the alumnae still. hold the lyceum very dear to their hearts, both for its old associations and for the opportunity they feel it offers the college girl. The spirit of the old and the new lyceum has evidently remained the same. There is, however, a striking contrast to be found in the room of a generation ago, with its partitions, and coal stove in the center of the room, and lighted by the gleam from a kerosene or gas light, and as it stands today-airy, well-lighted, and warm. The spirit that called it into existence still. exists. The motto, dear to the heart of every Iduna girl, "La Sagesse Gouvcrne L'UnifvPrse" will remain her motto throughout her life, for Idun lives in her heart forever.

A f ,., L., 'iff " 'Li fm -" ,i' M-D F'ID The Bluebird, the emblem of happiness, is the symbol of the Miltonian Lyceum. Early in the spring of 1922, lVIaeterlinck's play "The Blue Bird" was given by Miss lVIaxson together with a few members of the lyceum. During 1921-22, six new members joined the lyceum. The new girls were en- tertained at Lake Koshkonong by the "Blue and White" girls, who showed the "green" ones a good time in spite of the pouring rain, for even rain cannot dampen the Miltonian spirit. The twelfth birthday of the lyceum was celebrated in January 1922. Many of the former members were back for the birthday party. Enough money was given for a beautiful new floor lamp for the "Little Blue Room." On the morning of June 14-th, a number of girls gathered at Clear Lake for the annual lldiltonian Breakfast. The Miltonian Lyceum is growing. This year, 1922-23, fourteen new members have joined and two former members are back. The party for the new girls this year was a "hare and hound" chase, the chase ending in the Miltonian room, and the "catch" being a delicious supper. On November 18th' the "old girls" entertained the lyceum and put on a very interesting program, after which all adjourned to Rogers' and spent a social hour in getting acquainted with old and new members. The thirteenth birthday party was celebrated February 3rd, 1923. It was not unlucky, however, because many of the old members were back and, most of the new ones present. The absent members remembered the Blue Room by sending money for decorations. ' In the Oratorical Contests of both 1922 and 1923, Miltonians have won both first and second places. In 1922, Gladys Hulett won first place, Ardis Bennett second, and in 1923, Gladys again won first and Constance Bennett second place. May the lyceum continue her good work! "And when our college days are o'er And we have taken flight, Another throng shall raise our song To dear old Blue and White. Till then with joy our songs we'll sing, Our hearts be gay and bright, For though we roam our hearts find home With the dear old Blue and White." THE SQUID Seated one day in the zoo lab I was weary of text-books and slides, And my fingers wandered idly Over the squid's insides. I knew not what I was doing Or what I was cutting that day, But I made one slit in the ink sac, And my specimen faded away! M. S. '25, Page Sixty-four 1 1 . 4 Q :mu ,. 5-Hb 1: ' 1 ,H-f.-.

With ever-increasing interest in the work, and keeping alive the old Philo spirit expressed in the motto i'Nil Desparandumu, the society has been continually pressing on to greater achievement. In the fall of 1921 the Society reached a high water mark in membership and attendance. Twenty-eight new members were added, making a total of fifty-one members. The average attendance for the semester was above twenty.

It was held on November Sth in the Philo room. L. H. Stringer acted as toastmaster, and a large number of old Philos joined with the active members in the traditional joviality of the banquet. During the second semester under the presidency of C. D. Newman, interest re- mained at a high pitch. Several joint sessions were held with the other lyceums. Une of the more notable of these was a mock trial. held in conjunction with the Orophilians at the last session before Commencement. A. E. Skaggs acted as judge and A. M. Mills and R. H. Sholtz as attorneys. A. G. Combs was accused and convicted of theft after many laughable testimonies from the witnesses. A few weeks before the close of school a new Philo banner in the Philo colors, purple and gold, was purchased, and now hangs in the Philo room. The following year opened with an equal amount of enthusiasm but a slightly reduced membership. Twenty members were added from the Freshman' Class, making a total of forty-six. Early in the year a joint session was held with the Oros, in which the two societies represented the United States Senate, and debated the Soldiers' Bonus Bill. Professor J. N. Daland officiated as President of the Senate, the Oros represented the Democratic Senators and the Philos the Republicans. The annual Oyster Feed was held on November 25th. On this occasion all official records for eating oysters were broken by R. R. Hill and R. K. Meyer, who consumed respectively seventy-two and seventy raw oysters, besides several bowls of soup. Professor W. D. Burdick was the toast master of the evening and worked out an ingenious set of toasts to the spirit and ideals of the Society. On January 20th, 1923, a unique event was staged by the Philos in the form of a masquerade party in the gymnasium. Under the supervision of G .S. Kennedy and H. W. Mikkelsen the event was exceedingly successful. It is hoped that it will become a permanent affair and be held each winter as the Annual Philo Mas- querade. All Philos young and old were invited to attend with their partners and participate in the revelry. Many unique and original costumes resulted. The even- ing was given over to a series of grand marches conducted by lVIr. Mikkelsen and some vocal selections in Scotch dialect by H. R. Sheard. An orchestra composed of four members of the Orophilian Lyceum furnished music for the occasion. The second semester opened with more than usual interest on the part of the members, who were now reduced to thirty-eight in number. Parliamentary practice was made a prominent feature of the programs, and those who took part attained some efficiency in this line. The Annual Oratorical Contest held this year was one of special merit. There were nine speakers, all of whom delivered very creditable orations. H. W. Mikkelsen won first place with his oration "Our Problem: Capital or Labor", and H. R. Sheard, who spoke on the sub-ject, "Is the White Race Passing?", second. These two men represented the Philos in the Inter-Lyceum Contest, in which Mr. Sheard Won first place. This is the first time in several years that the Philos have won the Oratorical Contest. lylr. Sheard had the honor of representing Nlilton at the State Contest held at Waukesha. It is a notable fact that a large predominance of the men who have made the College debating teams in the past few years have been Philos.

A feature of the program was a reminiscent talk by W. P. Clarke, '61, The list of other after-dinner speakers and their subjects follows: Albert Babcock, "All Aboard", Emil Samuelson, "We're On Our Way", Milton Davis, "Starting Squeaksug Arthur Mills, 'iTrimmings"g Lloyd Sgagcr, Hlfori-gigs", Sanatotryrll Garey, "?xlelG1Aealse and Cobblestones', Prof. F. 1.

The enthusiasm of the members of the Science and Radio Clubs easily proves this state- ment. Early in December, 1922 a meeting was called to discuss the advisability of organizing a Science Club, and all students interested in science were especially in- vited to be present as well as the professors and instructors in the Science Depart- ments. A temporary organization was formed, and the organizing of a permanent society was thoroughly discussed. It was decided at that time to restrict- membership to students who had completed twelve hours' work in scientific studies and had selected a major in some science. This provision automatically excluded Freshmen. A Con- stitution Committee was appointed and the meeting adjourned. About a week later another meeting of the Club was called, and the Constitution was presented by the Committtee. It was adopted as read. A short time before Christmas vacation the following officers were elected: President, R. J. lVIcCubbing Vice President, Clyde Arringtong Secretary-Treasurer, Leona Sayre. The first meeting other than a business session was held January 17th, 1923, when all of the students and townspeople were invited to hear Dr. Edwin H. Lewis of Chicago speak upon the subject "Pasteur and the Possibilities of Chemistry." The Science Club was fortunate to secure such a speaker for its opening session and greatly appreciated Dr. Lewis' talk. lyleetings have not been held regularly because of the many other activities, but it is the desire of the Club to obtain other outside speakers as well as to have several student programs before the school year is finished. The new motion-picture projector, purchased by the Class of 1922, will undoubtedly be of great service to the program committee in the future. A great deal of credit is due the instructors in the various branches of Science for their support and enthusiasm in organizing the Club, and it is to be hoped that the students, with the able assistance of the faculty members, will keep the spark of life glowing. The College Boarding Club f Continued from Page 731 The credit for the successl of this project should be given to "Mother" Terwilli- ger, because she is almost entirely responsible for its prosperity. The Club members also owe a debt of gratitude to her for making the boarding house a real home for them. The Boarding Club has been a source of pleasure to those who have boarded there. During the autumn and spring days, the Club enjoyed several meals on the sloping banks of Bower's Lake or on the grassy knolls of Plumb's Nursery. However, the most delightful expedition of the year is the annual week-end party at Lake Koshko- nong. Everyone who has ever been present at one of these parties looks forward with great anticipation to the spring trip. z. as--r'-1M--f -'Mlm'-1 -v-f - :.-if-my 1w.k-,-'..- -:.r.w . fFfi3if .QE-3"fq'Ke 'fmtllji' 5' .5132 ffku-mf :gfruff 5: vfkfih ,ajigv giy,.5,5g .-1 .Lrg-N, 5.3032-3 ,ual Hs :,s,.' i!.,: ,LR 'arf 'S' .

As a direct result of this meeting, these officers were elected: President, Merton Sayre, Vice President, Albert Whitfordg Secretary-Treasurer, Wilbur Glover. The meetings, held every other Wednesday night, consist of lectures on radio, the latest radio jokes or stunts, and. music via the ether. VVith the aid of a box social, the Club now owns a bulb receiving outfit, and in the near future expects to own a better receiving outfit and a broadcasting set. At the beginning of the second semester, new officers were elected: President, Jerry Hill: Vice President, Miss Hattie Stewart, Secretary-Treasurer, Elston Shaw. Three committees are alive in the Club and keep interest above normal. The Meet- ings and Papers Committee has charge of the programs: the Library Committee keeps the members supplied with live news: and the Electrical Committee takes charge of the apparatus and music. This organization, although new, promises to become one of the leading instructive and social activities of the College. The "P. K. " Club The "P. K." Club of Milton College was, as far as is known, the first organiza- tion of its kind. lts membership is made up of "preachers' kidsl' attending, or alumni of Milton College, hence the club's name: UP. K.". The Club was organized in the fall of 1921 by Miss Amey Van Horn, then in- structor in the Biology Department. The officers elected at the time of organization were: President, H. Richard Sheardg Vice President, Donna Schlagenhaufg Secretary- Treasurer, Beulah Coon. Charter members were, in addition to those named above: A. Burdet Crofoot, G. D. Hargis, Prof. J. N. Daland, Allison Skaggs, Arthur Mills, Elma lVIills, Alexander Daland, Milton Davis, Howell Randolph, Doris Randolph, Prof. W. D. Burdick, Carroll Hill, Lloyd Seager, and Helen Jordan. The purpose of the Club, as stated in the preamble to the Constitution, is: "To create a more perfect fellowship, to increase our mutual acquaintance, and to promote the general welfare of our College." Members must have passed with credit the re- quired examination and initiation. Wives and husbands of "P, K.'s" may become associate members under the same conditions. The active membership at present consists of the following: Doris Randolph, Carroll Hill, Elma Mills, Arthur Mills, Catharine Shaw, Miriam Shaw, Doris Holston, Russell Burdick, Gerald Hargis, Donna Schlagenhauf, Beulah Coon, Helen Jordan, Milton Davis, Elston Shaw, Prof. J. N. Daland, Prof. W. D. Burdick. Associate members are: Mrs. W. D. Burdick, Mrs. Russell Burdick, lVIrs. J. N. Da- land, and Mrs. G. D. Hargis. The officers for the present year are: President, Russell Burdick, Vice President, Helen Jordan: Secretary-Treasurer, Carroll Hill. 31 , 1.4 Page Sefventy-six .2 Wifi' 9? me 5 7032-s ?

The girls were v-ery much interested and took up the plans eagerly. From then until extreme cold weather, from eight to fifteen girls hiked twice a week. Ar first the trips were short, such as to Clear Lake, but gradually they grew longer. Sometimes the girls would hike to a farmhouse where hot coffee was waiting for them. One c-risp winter morning, December 6, to be exact, thirteen girls Caceompanied by two boys who wouldn't be 'outdonej left Goodrich Hall at four-thirty in the morn- ing, and making their way through the darkness and over the frozen roads, they reached Janesville in time to take the train back to lVIilton for early classes. A When the snow melted away and the roads became traversable, the hikers re- sumed their excursions into the country. If those in the autumn had been enjoyable, these were even more delightful. For, truly, what can be more pleasant than an early morning hike when all nature is beginning to awaken in the glory of the spring? The girls often took along their kodaks, field glasses, and hooks, or per- haps a bite to eat. By this time their trips averaged about ten miles in length, in- cluding those to Koshkonong and Fort Atkinson. The ranks had thinned out by springtime, so that there were only seven re- maining to complete the one hundred miles required for earning the felt "M, H. C." 'l'hev were: Arlvne Stockman, Glee lfllis, Oma Pierce, Donna Schlagenhauf, Olive Agnew, Beulah Lewis, and Velma Maxson. ffviflllfillllftl on Page 14932 . .. , ,L ,. .,,..

A. work has progressed within the past two years with as much zeal and inspiration as have the other departments of the College. In the fall of 1921 new members were added, and one of the ways which was used in order to arouse interest among the girls was that of a "Childrens' Party." Throughout the year interesting meetings were held each Tuesday evening, each meeting being led by a different girl. In the spring of 1922 a Mother and Daughter Banquet was held in the Seventh Day Baptist Church. The general theme for the evening was "From a Col- lege Window." The officers of last y'ear's cabinet were: President, Dorothy G. Maxsong Vice President, Esther Loofborog Secretary, Dorothy Maxsong Treasurer, Eunice Roodg Undergraduate Representative, May Johnson. At the' beginning of the school year in Sepetember, 1922, the Y. W. C. A. entertained the new girls at a tea on the' Wednesday afternoon before school opened. Soon afterwards a membership drive was made and eighteen new members were obtained. About the middle of October the Y. W. C. A. held a retreat over the week-end at Lake Koshkonong under the leadership of a Y. W. C. A. representative. During the first week in December a Japanese bazaar and sale was held by the Y. W. for the purpose of raising money. During the college year the girls have sold sandwiches after chapel. On January 18th Mrs. George Crosley and Mrs. A. E. Whitford entertained the girls of the college at a very delightful afternoon tea. Every Wednesday morning at seven o'clock throughout the year, the Y. W. C. A. members have met in the Y. VV. room to discuss and plan Y. W. C. A. work. Breakfast had been served by different girls each Wednesday. The cabinet is always glad to have any Y. W. member come to these early morning meetings.

During the year of 1921-322, the Milton College unit of that organization met with considerable success under the leadership of President H. P. Kakuske, Vice Pres- ident R. H. Shol,tz, Secretary C. D. Newman, and Treasurer Paul Van Horn. This Cabinet took up its duties on April 12, 1921. Prof. H, M. Barbour was the chief speaker at the installation service. His theme was "The Y. M. C. A. as an Enterprise." Soon after the installation a large delegation attended a conference at Carroll College. J. Stitt Wilson spoke there. Later he gave a series of talks in Nlilton. The plans for the year were made at the annual spring retreat held at Lake Koshkonong. Paul Van Horn, Joe lf. Johnson, and Albert Babcock attended the lVliddl.e Western Conference at Lake Geneva in June of that year. Dr. H. Long- brake, lVIilwauKee clergyman, gave a series of lectures at lVIilton early in February, 1922. llfleetings were held regularly on Tuesday evening with an attendance rang- ing from six to thirty-four. On March 28, 1922, the ollioers were elected for the year 1922-'23, Soon afterward ten members of the organization attended the Olhcers' Training Con- ference at Nladison. These meetings, held in the University "Yu building and on the banks of beautiful Lake Mendota, were of inestimable value in fitting the officers for their new duties. Considerable effort was made to give the organization new vigor. The Cabinet met regularly every Sunday evening to consider the welfare of the organization and the campus life in general. As far as was possible, the re- sulting plans and ideas were put into practice. The Y. NI. C. A. fellows were in- strumental in putting a cement walk by the gymnasium. The College furnished the material, and the "YH men did the work under the supervision of "Jan" Lanphere.

H: also assisted in formulating plans for the next year. A joint session was held with the Y. VV. C. A. during Commencement VVeek, at which time the Reverend Neil Hansen of Whitewater gave an excellent address. The Geneva Conference in June was attended by President O. O. Dill Vice President llfl. N. Davis, Secretary C. F. Sutton, and llflemhership Chairman Rolland Sayre. Although llflilton was one of the smallest colleges represented at the conference, she had the largest delegation of any VVisconsin school. Dillner was elected leader of the Wisconsin delegation. ner, The fall of 1922 started off with rousing enthusiasm. After the regular meet- ing of October IO, the annual "Stag'l Social was held in the gymnasium. The early part of the evening was spent in playing a series of games. This was followed by a program consisting mostly of speeches by the Cabinet members. Refreshments added further variety to the occasion.f This party did much to bring about closer fellowship among the fellows. On October 27. Ray V. Sowers, State Student Secre- tary. and Rex Bell, an assistant of "Dad" Elliot, were present and took part in the impressive initiation service at which twenty-six new men joined the organization. l Biz. 4 it -.if rf-'tl E iii-4.51 a x r wwf! y ,U F Sli'-u g '55Q:f,j',f5 Page Eighly-three X.-.-v,-mix. . - 1. jx V V.. , 1. , ..

During the month of November, five more new students were taken into the group. During the first three days of De- cember, President Dillner, with two new members, Leland Hulett and Raymond Root, attended the Older Boys' Conference at La Crosse as delegates from lyiilton College. Much inspiration was received from the reports of these delegates. Professor Inglis took charge of the Freshman discussion group organized by C. L. Hill., Bible Stuidy Chairman. The course was a discussion of Fosdick's "Student Standards of Action." It continued until Christmas. On December 6 the two Christian Associations held a joint meeting in the chapel. The Reverend R. G. Pierson of Janesville gave a very inspiring talk at this meeting. Under the leadership of C. L. Hill, a group of students have met regularly every morning this year in the' HY" room for a few moments of Bible study and prayer before the beginning of their daily tasks. In March, Professor Whitford, Professor Stringer, C. L. Hill, and' E. W. Vincent attended thVe Y. M. C. A. Convention at Milwaukee. At that time Dr. John R. Mott spoke on his interesting theme, "The Living Christ." The attendance at regular "Y" meetings was much better on the whole this year than last. The average attendance was twenty-one, the lowest being eleven. The Friday night prayer meetings were held regularly in the Davis Room under the auspices of the two Christian Associations. In these meetings also, record breaking attendance was a common occurrence. Late in March of this year, C. L. Hill was elected the new President of the HY." With an entirely new Cabinet, "Cal" is working hard to make the influence of the Christian Association felt on the campus even more than last year. Other officers of the new Cabinet are: Vice President, M'erton Sayre, Secretary, Russell Burdickg and Treasurer, Leland Hulett. PH I LO MATH EAN SOCIETY fContim1ed from Page 683 members of the 1922 team and four of this year's debaters were Philos. Those making the team this year were C. E. Arrington, G. S, Kennedy, D. W. Cockfield, and R.. W. Crosley. The success which the 'Philos have had in forensic activities speaks well for the training in debating and public speaking received in the Lyceum. The Philos have the traditions of a great Society behind them, in which some of the noblest and most illustrious of Milton's graduates have received their training, but they bVelieve that the Society has the possibility of an even greater future. With this ideal before them they are striving constantly to gain greater heights of achieve- ment.

Last year a long cherished dream was fulfilled when the School of Music was established upon the campus itself. The ground floor of the President's home, which is admirably adapted for the purpose, was converted into music studios and is now one of the centers of greatest activity on the campus. Another step has been the granting of College credits for work done in music. This enables' students to receive both a College diploma and a musical diploma with- out overtaxing their strength as was formerly too often the ease when music was considered additional to the regular College studies. The Glee Club and Treble Clef have been given a place in the regular schedule of classes, which not only eliminates the tiresome evening rehearsals but makes prac- tices morc regular and satisfactory by being subject to the regulations for attendance of classes. The Orchestra and Choral Union are important factors, not only in the life of the College' itself but also of the community. People of the community take advantage of the fine musical courses offered by the College in Piano, Voice, 'Pipe organ, Violin, Harmony, Theory and History of Music. Wliere definite service to the community is concerned, no department of the College fills so many needs as does the School of lllusie. THIS CHORAL UN ION The Choral. Union has maintained its traditional high quality of performance and. has continued to give excellent training in chorus singing to its members during the seasons of 1921-'22 and 1922-'23. Furthermore, it has taken a forward step in uniting with the Janesville Community Chorus in singing the "Messiah" at the Christmas season. This arrangement has been made possible by the fact that Pro- fC0lIfilIllL'tl on Page 1532 THE CHORAL UNION Page Eighiy-ffvc hlllwildllalifi CELEB F DES ,.'f--EFS-1, , , .. . nfl-'P' Q ,'bL6ijf!,a.QgE4 !,g"gg','i9f,Q'iff' 57 -:vlgixjlfg-L m,'ff,fa'-1 ti fa --ew:-ga tesvfv ,":1uI,Q'r7 9"N',vi:fsp', " 41' Nhii-Q . ,,"lgl.43tLr 145LFf lLl"'5fff 'i - ll' ' 'if "f"ElbiifW- "'W?f'Z , I 'l1?.5.'. fwfi W' '-.4450 'Clem 13 -:wr ..

This year the Treble Clef has given a concert which was and should have been its best. VVith new material and added membership making the total thirty, the club has given a fine demonstration of musical expression. Not only did it present a varied and well rendered program,of songs and some instrumental selections but also staged a movie, well acted and thrilling. The Treble Clef will present this concert in neighboring towns.

It gives its members thorough and practical training, real aesthetic appreciation, wholesome enjoyment, and a definite means of serving the school. The 1922 season of the Milton College Glee Club was no exception to this statement. With nearly half a club needed to fill the nine vacancies left after the 1921 season, and with only a limited schedule of concerts in view, prospects were not very bright for a big season. Yet, in spite of these early hindrances and later some handicaps of ab- sences through illness, Professor L. H. Stringer found able voices to fill the ranks, and he whipped a club into shape that made a very creditable showing in its dozen or more appearances. The first public appearance of the 1922 Glee Club was Tues- day evening, March 7th, at the rural community of Fairfield. This program showed where the rough spots, needed smoothing and where defects could be remedied. A week later, March 14th, the Club caught an early train for Platteville. There a few brief numbers were sung to the students assembled at the high school that after- noon, and in the evening the full program was presented to a good audience at the high school auditorium. Mineral Point was visited the following day, and in the afternoon the boys entertained briefly at the' high school. The evening concert at the llflunicipal Theater went far better than the previous two. On this trip the Club was handicapped by Mr. Stringer's absence because of illness. Professor A. E. Whit- ford, whose duties as Acting President of the College forced him to resign from the Club this season after many years of faithful service, ably filled Mr. Stringer's place in the Platteville and Mineral Point programs. Four concerts in as many towns followed in succession beginning Monday, March 20th, the opening of the spring recess. The first stop was at Waterloo, where, after a brief program at the high school in the afternoon, a supp-er was served to the Club at the Methodist Church. Here the evening program was presented to a crowded house. - Johnson's Creek people were hosts to the singers the next day. The Commercial Club gave the boys a veritable banquet at their club rooms at noon and then showed them through the.industrial places of the village. In the afternoon the usual short song program was given before the high school students, and at' night the Club gave one of the most successful concerts of the season. On Wednesday morning the boys returned to lvlilton only to prepare for an over- land jaunt to Edgerton that night. There the regular concert was heard at the il fContinuerl on Page 1851 42 Page Eighty-nine EM I-TIDES 1923 Glee Club Tour Despite the handicap of eight vacancies and apparent lack of material competent to maintain the high standard of excellency of other years, the Milton College Glee Club has completed a very successful season. Fifteen concerts were given before large and appreciative audiences. That the class of music and its rendition was of unusually high character was the statement of music critics wherever the Glee Club sang. The initial appearance was a pre-season concert given at the Elks Memorial Service held in the Myers Theater in Janesville on the afternoon of December 3rd. Although the Club could not be expected to do its best work at this time, the program was en- joyed by all who heard it. On the afternoon of February 27th the Glee Club braved the dangers of snowdrifts and mufdholes and arrived safely at the Rock Prairie church. Here the regular pro- gram was given to a small but appreciative audience. This appearance brought to light the rough places and weak spots which were quickly remedied. Several days later, March 7th, the Glee Club, feeling greatly encouraged with the results of their first concert, sang at Milton Junction. A good, crowd met them with hearty applause, and the fellows responded with their best. The next night a concert was given in the First Baptist Church at Edgerton. By this time the Club was getting into real concert form, and the program pleased the listeners so well that numerous encores were requested. March 19th was the date set for the Orfordville concert. The elements did not seem to be willing to co-operate and piled such huge drifts across the railroad tracks that it was feared that the concert would have to be cancelled. The Club arrived at Orfordville, however, on a train which was a day late, and they were received with hearty welcome. Despite the bad weather there was a good crowd, and the program given in the High School was both well received and well, rendered. The next day, still braving the snow drifts, the Club arrived in Brodhead where they were welcomed into the homes of their several hosts. They gave a short concert at the High School,in the afternoon and the regular concert at the Methodist church in the evening. It speaks well for the Glee Club that many music critics who listened to them were well pleased. The thirteenth annual tour began with a concert at Beloit on the evening of March 27th. The fellows arrived there, via the trolley, just in time for a lunch before the concert and were in fine mettle for it. Beloit presented an audience of music lovers who praised the work very highly. The Club went from Beloit to Chicago but with a feeling of regret and sorrow, for, Professor Stringer was forced to return home because of the sickness of his son "Billy," Also George Terwilliger, a first tenor, was forced to remain home as he was stricken with a sudden illness. The Glee Club arrived in Chicago and were directed to the homes of their hosts. In the evening they gave a private concert at the home of Dr. George Post, Jr. This was the first concert given without the direction of Pro- fessor Stringer, and the fellows were inclined to be a little nervousf but otherwise the concert went very well. The men enjoyed their short stay in Chicago very much and were loathe to leave. The next morning they departed, via the "rough and ready" Pere Marquette, for White Cloud, Michigan. After a ten-hour ride they arrived at White Cloud and fllonlinued on Faye IQII im1:f7i 1-1 -1 .ts :'--f ,r-som 4:-:V '.

It was entirely due to his efforts that an orchestra, composed of amateurs, has been able to make a record and a reputation in the surrounding country. Last year the Orchestra was left without its leader, but Professor Stringer, al- though his hands were already full, finally consented to take charge of the organization. In spite of handicaps, the loss of old members, and the training of new material, the Orchestra has succeeded in giving its annual concerts in a very creditable manner, and much credit is due to Professor Stringer. In 1922 Miss Anna Post, contralto, and the Milton College Glee Club assisted the Orchestra at their C0l1CCl't. Another pleasing feature was Wagner's "Evening Star" played as a 'cello solo by Miss Constance Bennett and accompanied by the Orchestra. The program this year was received with great delight. The Orchestra presented Dr. Thomas J. Snodgrass, baritone of Janesville, who charmed the audience with his singing. This season is the first one in which the Orchestra has failed to present an entire symphony, playing only the Andante from Beeth0ven's Fifth Symphony. It is ex- pected that the entire composition will be played next year. On account of the weather conditions a comparatively small number of people at- tended the first concert. For this reason the concert was repeated in April to a large audience with greater success than before. The following night the postponed Fort Atkinson concert was given. Here again the program was warmljggreceived. Music critics were very enthusiastic about every number played. With practically all of the present members planning to return to school, next year's Symphony Orchestra will have every chance of being the best ever produced in Milton College. fC07lli7l1lC'd on Page 962 21 ..-.

The spirit of the intercollegiate football and basketball games was enlivened by the snappy band music. Several new members joined during the first part of the school year and were soon doing their part in furnishing the best of music. This year, however, the group was organized by Milton Davis, who has proved a good successor to lV1r. Johnson, a 1922 graduate. Regular weekly practices were held last fall in the chapel, so that when the time came for music at the games the Band was on hand with a good variety of airs. The services of the Band have been given entirely gratis, but the men have enjoyed playing enough to pay for their work. This organization furnishes a fine opportunity for new students to make use of and to improve their musical talent. The members of the Band for 1921-22 were as follows: CORNETS Joe Johnson Clyde Arrington Chester Newman Raymond Sholtz CLA RIN ms Merlin Chadsey Carroll Oakley SAxovHoNE Harvey Holmes BARITON E Milton Davis TROMBONES Howard Fox Carroll Hill Lowell Shrader Bass Arden Lewis DRUMS Paul Van Horn CVM BALS Myrl Davis Though four members--Johnson, Newman, Oakley, and Van Horn-were lost at the end of last school year, seven new men strengthened the organization in the fall. The new members are: Paul Ewing and John Gillaspy, cornetsg Albert Whitford and Gerald Kennedy, altosg Russell Burdick and Robert Stair, trombonesg Lorraine Summers, bass drum. if ii 'WU iff' 1 'Gif 4-.1 ik?

The class aims to train students for membership in the Glee Club, Choral Union, and Treble Clef.

'31 ,gf ' Athletic Progress The past two years have seen the plans of the Alumni Athletic Board carried out to as great an extent, perhaps, as could be hoped for. Physical training classes for both men and women have been placed on the reg- ular class schedule, the four sections meeting for one period each three days a week. These training classes have given exhibitions each year which are quite well attended and aid considerably in the broadcasting of the idea of 'lexercise for health." Courses of instruction in Hygiene and Athletic coaching have been conducted by the Department. These subjects fill a certain need in every student's life of knowing more about himself and the proper care of the hu- man mechanism. Football, track, and tennis were added to basketball and baseball as intercollegiate sports. Intramural athletics, especially bas- ketball, track, and tennis, have been encour- aged for both men and women, while a full year's program of athletics for women has been provided. Student enrollment increased materially during the two years, due in a large degree to the greater publicity gained through athletics. Coach Crandall has done very well in introducing new sports and in meeting with the success he has from the crude, raw material. Many young fellows have found a new joy in life when they find they can participate in some College sport. lt is a part of the school life, and for health as well as a diversion everyone should get better acquainted with some sport which he enjoys.

A. T. C. engaged in it. Along with the rest of the Athletic program football is destined to make good. Due to the fact that there was a small amount of material for this branch of athletics Coach Crandall thought it not advisable to attempt a large schedule. It has been necessary to work up from the ground, teaching the fundamentals and rudiments of the game. More than thirty candidates came out for this sport. The first game came on October 1-l against lfVhitewater Normal, at Whitewater. The Normalites were more versed in the game and proved too much for our inex- perieneed string of men. Milton fought against odds during the first half espe- cially, as the wind assisted the Teachers to make long punts. These would put the ball well downfield and then our men, being weak on offense, could not make their downs. In the last quarter Milton opened up a little and the team seemed to have n-ew life. Lehman made several gains. Captain Lanphere, in spite of an injured shoulder went into the game and made a 30-yard end run. Milton lost heart when the team was penalized within three yards of goal, this being her only good chance to score. The game ended shortly afterward with a score of 3-l to 0 in favor of the Purple. The next Varsity game was played at Milwaukee against Milwaukee Normal on October 21. llflilton men showed marked improvement over the Whitewater game. Many gains were made through the heavier and much more experienced line of the opponents. Several of our players were hurt in the scrimmage which did much to weaken the morale of the team. It was only when the morale dropped that Normal did most of their scoring. Milton made their downs more often than did Carroll or Northwestern against Milwaukee Normal. The weakness seemed to be in defense. Lehman, Walters, and Lanphere were the stars of the game for Milton. Russell Hill play-ed a good defensive game. Carroll Hill worked hard, as usual, and made several good gains, but was badly injured during the first half, Milton losing a good man when he had to be taken out of the game. The Brown and Blue met defeat, but it was at the hands of one of the best football teams in the state. As compared with other colleges with the same opponent, Milton made a better showing. Milwaukee 55, Milton 0. On October 24 the second team played Union High School on the lower campus. General opinion had it that Union would experience little difficulty in winning from the scrubs. However, the second string men had it doped out another way. The only score of the game was made by "Gerry" Sayre in the first quarter. lt was a successful 20-yard run which brought the touchdown and then he kicked goal. "Ard" Lewis played a good game at fullback and it was by his repeated line plunges of several yards each that the seconds gained consistently. The game ended with the College seconds ahead, 7 to 0. Another game between the local High School and College seconds turned th-e tables against the latter. Union's warriors came back strong and defeated the sec- onds 20 to 0. This evened up affairs between the teams, each winning a game. The third game of the College seconds vs. Union was played November 14 on the lower campus. Playing in the snow and slush the scrubs soon opened attacks which were too much for Union's best.

A schedule of six games was early arranged. With less than two weeks in which to get ready for a tough scrimmage with Carroll College, Coach Crandall left no stone unturned to whip into shape a team to meet the Waukesha eleven. Between twenty-five and thirty men came out for early practices, and nothing was allowed to interrupt the training program. Milton opened its second season of football September 29 by losing a game to Carroll College. Milton put up a game fight at Waukesha, but could not bold out against the more experienced opponents. Carroll outplayed us by interference, but when it came' to punting Milton excelled by an average of ten yards per punt, In the third quarter of the game Milton was making a much better showing, but this was too late to overcome the big lead of the Waukesha College team. The honors went to Carroll 40-O. The team journeyed to Watertown October 6 to give battle to the eleven of Northwestern College. They had beaten Milton the previous year on her own field, and the fellows were quite determined to show them a good time in exchange for the defeat of last year. Nothing was gained by either team during the first quarter. The playing was done mostly back and forth in the middle of the field. Milton's line held good, and a frequent end' run netted substantial gains. In this period Seager made an end run with a gain of thirty-six yards, but a penalty and a tightening of the North- western line soon gave the home team the ball. Milton weakened a little in the second period, and the opponents carried their first touchdown across the line and kicked goal. The second half saw Milton's line weaken, making it possible for Northwestern to pierce it for neat gains almost at will. Our quarter, but the time was too short and the of the ball on Nortbwesternls thirty-yard line. The College bell rang loud and long on ers saw their team come into its own for a showed a playing form entirely' different from men rallied near the end of the fourth whistle blew with Milton in possession The score: Northwestern 26, Milton 0. Friday, October 13, when Milton root- win over Platteville Normal. Milton the two previous games. The line held like a solid wall, and the backtield worked in fine shape. The two touchdowns for our team were made in the first and fourth quarters. Chadsey did the passing and Kepler the receiving in the aerial part of the battle. Kepler made both touchdowns. Call Hill intercepted passes of the opponents and fell on their fumbles, gaining pos- session of the ball for Milton. This game was played in Janesville to insure better financial support and to advertise the College. The feature of the game was clean, hard play by both teams. The Teachers went off the field with the small end of the score 13-2. On October 25 Milton rooters went to Janesville again to watch a close battle between Campion College and Milton elevens. lt was a game not to be forgotten by players nor spectators. Our men showed their mettle and good sportsmanship un- der adverse circumstances. The playing was extremely close throughout the game, which kept a crowd of over five hundred onlookers guessing until the blowing of the final whistle. Cal Hill, Chadsey, Kepler, and Dillner should be noted in the scoring of this game and for completed plays. The score broke in favor of Campion 26-19. lVIilton lost another game at Platteville, when they played the Wisconsin School of Mines there on November 9.

Q- .1 , .t. : Q,-111.1 the Milton men showed no pep nor ability at the game of football. Perhaps the fel- lows were tired from the long bus ride to the scene of battle. Some of the men were about sick after such a long trip in a motor vehicle of the type used. There were rallies by Milton now and then, but for the most part the Miners had little difficulty in gaining ground by whatever method they chose to use. Chadsey did some good kicking during the game, and an occasional pass to Kepler helped to gain ground. The whistle gave the Miners the game, 27 to O. The sixth game of the season was played at Janesville, against Whitewater Normal. It was generally expected, by those who did not put much faith in Milton's strength, that her opponents would have little difficulty in running up a huge score. But those who were interested enough to see the game witnessed a real struggle. The Milton men fought with determination and showed great improvement from the season's experi- ence. Indeed, they demonstrated that they were worthy rivals for the Normal war- riors. In this game Milton completed more passes and was penalized a great deal less than her opponents. Whitewater alone scored in this game attaching seven points in the first quarter. Whitewater 7, lVIilton 0. The last game Milton played was a post-season game in Janesville against the Wis- consin School of Mines on Thanksgiving Day. The play of both teams was evenly matched in nearly every respect, the rivalry making an exciting game. Milton made her touchdown by line plays, while the Miners made theirs by forward passes. Be- cause of injuries Captain Hill had to be removed during the second quarter of the game, which could not help but have its effect on the rest of the team. The third quarter was a see-saw affair, neither team being able to make any headway. The last period was similar, but the final score of 13-6 in favor of the Miners helped to take off part of the sting of the previous game played at Platteville. Milton made twelve first downs to her opponents' nine during the game. The season has been successful from more than one standpoint. It has given good experience against strong teams and this should be of much advantage to the Coach next year in making a formidable eleven to meet the best teams in the southern part of the state. The great improvement over the team of 1921 would prophesy a win- ning aggregation for 1923 if most of the present team return to school for 1923-2-I-, and work with their'captain, Carroll Hill. l FOOTBALL 1921 fC07Ilf7l1lL'd from Page 1012 long gains. The game was called at the end of the first half on account of dark- ness with the seconds leading in the score of 13 to 0. Friday afternoon, November 18, Milton played its last game of the season, against Northwestern College. This was the first home game. The Hrst quarter was fairly even and at the end of the first half the score was in Northwestern's favor 6 to 0. Reverses caused Milton to become disheartened and this weakened the team. There were fumbles galore, some of which decidedly aided Northwestern to score. Northwestern played a forward passing game most of the time, and won the tilt 20 to 0. Though the Varsity team failed to score in any regular game the men gained much valuable experience which should be of much benefit to them if they play the game next year. The fellows played clean and showed the good sportsmanship char- acteristic of Milton College. We are proud to know that the team several times m.ade a better showing than other College teams with much more experience in this sport.

Besides this seasoned material there was a wealth of new prospects which made good toward obtaining berths on the College five. Marquette University was the first opponent, meeting us on our fioor December 10. Marquette showed a well-balanced, strong team which proved too much for our men to follow. Milton showed a weakness in offense. The defense was stronger, causing Marquette to score by long field shots. The local talent star was Captain Kakuske, who rang up eight of Miltonls ten points. The second half showed more of Milton's fight, for in that period the score was 11-9 in favor of the visitors. The Milton men played clean, only being charged with one foul as compared with six for the opponents. Score: Marquette 22, Milton 10. The College team journeyed upstate December 1-l- to meet Ripon. Our men met a decisive defeat there. The first half witnessed close playing on both sides, neither getting much of a lead. But the second half held, no favors for our men and Ripon's tossers seemed to have no opposition. Ripon took the game 35-11. The annual Alumni game was played off December 31. This was an easy game and substitutions were numerous, giving the greatest number a chance to play against the old timers. Rolland Sayre starred in this game for the College dropping eight field goals. Kakuske was close behind with seven to his credit. The final score was indicative of th-e style of game, 36-7. The second home game was played against Oshkosh Normal, January 7. Milton led in the scoring during most of the first session but weakened in the second and lost the game by the score of 20-11. Inability to make field goals was Milton's weak point. G. Sayre and Oakley were out of the game for most of the second half which un- doubtedly speaks for some of Milton's failures. Oakley starred for the home team, making two field goals. January 11 Coach Crandall took his men to Oshkosh to play a return game with the Normalites. Our men played miserably during the first half, trailing in the score of 18 to 8. They came back with more pep and Milton spirit at the beginning of the second half, leading in the scoring for that period 11-9. But the gain was too slow and Oshkosh took the game 27-19. Kakuske and Oakley were high score men. The following night found our team in the Lawrence camp. They invaded with such determination and hard fighting that the Northerners were forced to bow to us during the first half as the score showed the Brown and Blue leading 15 to 13. Law- rence spurted in the beginning of the second half and soon led lVIilt0n by several points. But our men settled down to business and threw a real scare into the opponents by some timely work. The final whistle was all that saved Lawrence the game which ended in their favor 31-30. Lanphere led in the scoring with five field goals and one free throw. Kakuske and R. Sayre followed closely with four field goals each. The Brown and Blue journeyed to Whitewater January 18 to meet the Normal five. The playing was loose and ragged. Milton missed many tries at goal which allowed VVhitewater to keep in close range. Our men led all through the Hrst half but by a small margin. The second half was more exciting and the playing faster. Several times the score was tied, but with Milton guarding perfectly and advancing down the floor occasionally, our men came out of the miserable display of basketball islfi 1141052 1 ,HS sv fl- - 'Z QI' 'f if -EPM lg.

Sayre made most of the field goals and Oakley assisted with free throws. Carroll College basketeers eame to hflilton january 28. Milton outplayed them in the first half, but weakened when some of the visitors went to basket-shooting for a pastime. The home team's spirit dropped a notch when several first men were taken off the floor during part of the second half. The lead gained at that time by Carroll was too much to be overcome and the game was won by the visitors. 16 to 0. Lan- phere and Oakley were the only local scorers. 'ilihe hlilton College five came back to winning when the Platteville Normal bunch came here for a game February 2. The game was fast and comparatively clean and did not lack thrills for those who witnessed it. Milton soon took the lead in scor- ing, maintaining it throughout most of the game. Carroll Hill starred in this game by his fast work and ability to keep the ball in his possession, besides making four field goals. Score: hflilton 2-l, Platteville 19. On the second long trip of the year, Milton lost two games. Our men met lla Crosse Normal on its own floor February 7, and being decidedly outclassed went down to defeat at the rate of 52-I6. Captain Kakuske made twelve of the sixteen points for lklilton. From here the Brown and Blue went to l'rairie du Chien to meet the Campion College tossers.

There were Hve last year's men on hand, together with many high school starsg and the outlook for the year seemed very promising. Shortly after Thanksgiving recess the R. F. B.s of Janesville gave us Il practice game. The first half ended 7 to 4 in favor of the R. F. B.s. Lack of practice together showed up during the game, and although the men played hard they couldn't overcome the lead and the game ended l-l- to 13 with the R. I". l3.s victorious. Witliin the next week the coach smoothed out the kinks as best he could, and than the squad, composed of Sayre, R. Hill, Chatlsey, lVIcNitt, Kepler, Blacke, and Dillner, traveled to lylilwaurkee to meet the strong lklarquette five. The team held the Mai'- quette machine to a lead of only two points the first half, the score being 7 to 95 but in the second half our opponents dropped the ball in from the middle of the floor several times while we could gather but three free throws, making the final score 10 to 26. Although defeated, Milton made her opponents work to the last minute for their victory. The next game came the day after Christmas vacation, with Lawrence College at Appleton. The team was minus the support of Chadsey, who had quit school. The game was played on a short and wide Hoot which made guarding diflicult, but at the same time the team didn't have any fight or pep, and consequently the game was lost Page Une llundred Eight ill?

The first half was fair, the score being 10-18, but the second half proved disastrous to the lVIilton team. The usual game with the Alumni took place during Christmas vacation, with the usual result. The Alumni team included Oakley, Kakuske, Sorenson, Burdick, Nelson, and Crandall, and with such artists of the game the College five was given a hard battle. The score at half time was 1-I--8 with the old "grads"'in the background. The second half was more even with the College in the lead again. Final score: 23-13. The first game of 1923 was at Platteville with the Normal School. The teachers were out for revenge because of their defeat in football, and as a result the game was hotly contested,-at least the first half proved so. McNitt and R. Hill scored seven points while Platteville cornered eight points during the first half. The team went up in the air the second half, and the game ended with Platteville in the lead, score 26-8. The coach had every reason in the world to be discouraged after this game, but he stuck by the ship and put all he had into the making of a team which would put up a good fight. The result of his efforts showed up in the Carroll game the following week. Captain "Gerry" Sayre had resigned before this game, and C. Hill was called upon to do his bit. The first half was nip and tuck, ending in a 12-12 tie. The second half was just as fast as the Hrst half, but our men failed to score more than one field goal while Carroll collected four goals, the score being 20-14. "Cal" Hill proved his Once more a change in lineup was made. worth in this game by dropping in two baskets. The second blow of the season came when McNitt, R. Hill, Bentz, and Daland were dismissed from the team because of disobeying training rules. This necessitated the development of a new team. Again the Kepler, J. Hill, and Blacke were called upon with this new lineup the team went into the to win. The first half ended 9 to 141- with the came back strong the second half, but failed caged five goals. Although Platteville won coach showed his unflinching spirit. to do their bit for the College, and 'Platteville Normal game determined Normalites in the lead. The fellows to make baskets, while the teachers Z6-16, the new team showed a lot of fight and made her oppon-ents work throughout the whole game. Seager was put at forward, while Kepler was dropped because of scholastic difficulties. "Gerry" Sayre rejoined the team, filling in at center. With this newly organized team, Milton went up against the strong Ripon outfit. Lack of basket shooters spelled defeat for Milton. Although the score was one-sided, Milton outplayed Ripon in team work. Score at half time was ll-0, while at the end of the game it stood 22-5. The following week Lawrence came to give us battle. Seager, C. Hill, and Sayre played wonderful ball, but again we lacked the necessary basket shooter. The half ended 1-l-2. The second half was a little closer, but Lawrence stalled and thus prevented us from scoring. Final score: 23-2. Once more the ranks were depleted when J. Hill and Blacke were dropped because of scholastic standings. Hinkley, who had played back guard on Union High School's team and who had been waiting for his opportunity to defend Milton's honors, was put in at right guard. With this new combination lVIilton Went into battle with the Wisconsin School of Mines. The team showed lightning speed and accuracy, surpassing the other teams which had represented Milton during the season. The Miners were outclassed from start to finish. Seager and Cal Hill had finally found their "eyes" and the ball rolled in the basket numerous times for both of these men. The half ended 8-53 the Miners making their points via f 1:2 Page One Hundrcrl Nine IDES the free throw route. The second half was a duplicate of the first, the final score being 17-11. The last home game was with Carroll College. Coach Bell of Carroll sent in his second string men expecting to have an easy time of it, but Milton proved too fast for his seconds and the first team was sent in. The teams were evenly matched and the game was an exciting one, with Milton in the lead at half time, score 9-5. The second half was similar to the first until "Gerry" Sayre was taken out because of personals. His absence proved too much of a loss to the team, and Carroll began to nose her way through to victory. Score: 19-13. The last game of the season took place at Ripon. For some reason or other the fellows didn't play their usual style of a game the first half, and Ripon led us by eight points, score being 12--1. The second half turned out differently. The men fought like they never fought before, but the lead was too great and the game ended 28-16 in Ripon's favor. Considering the many reverses which the team received during the season, Mil- ton can be proud of the squad which finished the year. The fellows showed a won- derful spirit of stick-to-it-iveness and should be commended for their clean and hard playing. At the same time, our coach deserves a great deal of praise for his inde- fatigable efforts in rounding a team into shape. Respectfully submitted, OTTO O. DILLNER, Captain of 1922-23 Basketball Team.

This was Union's first appearance of the season and a loyal crowd saw a snappy game. The latter part of the game was played Very evenly. Daland made seven of the nine points for the Seconds, and played a fast, consistent game. On January 28, 1922, the College Seconds lost another game, this time to the Rock Prairie Stars. This was the preliminary game to the Carroll vs. Milton contest on the home floor. The score of 15-1-1 shows th-e closeness of the game. Burdick made ten of the fourteen points for the scrubs. In another opener on February 2, Union proved too fast for our second team and took the big end of the scoring to the tune of 18 to 12. Poor passing and much fumbling lost this contest for aspirants. Little was done for the College Second team in this year. They were used a great deal to give scrimmage to the first team. Some might lose interest because they could not play on the College Five, but the training afforded by playing on the second team is bound to place one in higher ranks when his exhibition of knowledge of the game warrants it. flfolztirllzefi on Page 1241 - -. . 1 -1 1 Page Om' Hundred Elefven -,-ri: N:-:qi ,-ew5,1.g: 2?'l1-.Di,.1j,,f'--lljt 2 4, .,.,,,.m,,,,ii .,,,.7,,.,,,:,,v,,, 13 'ig gy ,,!T:i4,, ,,.-z1Q,,,, at Q ,eff Q' 'E Chang, Lanphere, johnson, Shiba Kakuske, Captain Oakley , P Interclusss Basketball 1921-,22 v Five teams took part in the Interclass Basketball tourney this year, the Specials being the odd class. lt was interesting, as usual, to see the gayly colored outfits of the players as they appeared on the Hoor for the first time. As an opener, the juniors played the Specials and were beaten by the score of 9-ll. The odd class kept their lead throughout the game. At the end of the first half it stood 7--l in their favor. The Seniors looked for a Walkaway in their game with the Freshmen because the former team was made up mostly of College first team men. But the Frosh were able to hold them down pretty well and get a field goal themselves. The Seniors took the game 18--I-. The Sophomore-Junior game was a hard fight and no prophecy could bc made as to the winner. The guarding was excellent on both sides. Some say the Juniors were handicapped because of the gay togs of the second year men.

The first interclass contest was rather one-sided, Sophs vs. Seniors. The latter had but one first-team man, "Gerry', Sayre, and the others making up the team were inexperienced at handling the leather sphere. "Gerry" played most of the Senior game, in spite of the fact they all worked hard. On the other hand, the Sophs had three first-team men in their ranks and had little trouble in piling up the score of 37 to 5 in their favor. Seager made 1-l points for his team, L The second game of the tourney was between the Juniors and Frosh. This Started at a fast pace resulting in no score for either team for several minutes.

Girls, Basketball 1921-'22 The first action of the Milton College Girls' Basketball Team was seen Febru- ary 22 in a game with the Janesville Y. VV. C. A. Girls' Team. The Janesville team was too fast for the co-eds and so took the long end of the scoring, 24 to 5. Velma Maxson and D-onna Schlagenhauf made all the points for the College girls. The next game was another loss for the Milton girls when they lost to the rushing team from Union High School in the College gym. Several of the College girls had never played basketball before this year and so were unskilled at the game. Union was the winner by a score of 15 to 8. The last girls' basketball game of the season was played on the evening of March 9. The contest was held in the Union High School gymnasium against the Union girls. In the first quarter the younger girls had everything their own way, but the second period brought a turn in favor of the College players. The older girls showed much improvement over last year's playing and gave more of a battle Union ahead, and the High School girls took the game by the score of 21 to 18. Velma Maxson led the scoring for her team, making four field goals. Pauline Davis and Lois Atkinson were the only other scorers for the College. . Page One Hundred Fourteen i .. ,tm 1.

Each team played a fast game. The Milton girls showed much improvement over last year's playing and gave more of a battle to their opponents. The "Y" team outclassed the school team in shooting ability, but both teams played a very good guarding game. The score, in favor of Janesville, 19 to 9, does not indicate the even playing of the two teams. Another game with the Janesville "Y" girls brought the same rcsultt, only more disastrously for the Coeds. This was played as a preliminary to the Lawrence-lVIilton game. The visitors, being much more experienced, showed better team work and su- periority in shooting baskets. The game was rather slow, and both teams gave a poor exhibition of basketball. Ruth lvloody and Rose Gray made the points for llflilton. Score: Janesville 25, lVIilton S. The College girls showed on February 15 that they would win at least one game before the season closed. Ruth lVIoody started the scoring in brilliant style by making a field goal immediately after the game started. At the end of the half the score stood 6-6. The College girls showed some unusual team work and good shooting in the second half, maintaining their lead to the end of the game. This victory for the Col- lege girls over Union High's fast team speaks Well for their work in athletics and assures us a good outlook for the future. ll t. i is matt: :i..:a.i: 2lM:e..i ..-. t ga Pflyz' Om' llumfrvrl Fiffarn f, L I .pl ..., z7vr.r:lF ,.'- af-,ey "EE ij- 'V iii High School Tournament 1922 The first game of the tournament was a snappy clash between Union High School and Lake Geneva, the former winning the tilt 27-10. Chadsey was high score man for Union. Kahn and Shott gave exhibitions of excellent basketball for the Lake team. A thrilling game between Edgerton and Jefferson showed two teams quite evenly matched. Neither team was at all sure of winning until the final whistle blew giving Jefferson the lead, 15-11. From appearance before the game, one might have thought the Oregon players too small to tackle teams composed of much larger fellows. But in their game with Fort Atkinson they showed dazzling speed and team work. They were leading at the end of the first half but the Fort team came back to fight harder and do better guard work, and the score was tied two minutes before the end of the game. The game went to Fort Atkinson 17-15. The Evansville-Stoughton game seemed slow after watching much faster games. At the start both teams played evenly, but Evansville soon started her scoring machine and piled up the score of 19-4. Evansville's guarding approached perfection, Stoughton not even being able to take long shots. Union scored about as she pleased in the game with Jefferson. The only point for the upstate lads came from a free throw in the second half, the game ending in a 20-1 score. The Edgerton-Lake Geneva game was slow and uninteresting except for a little burst of speed in the second half which resulted in Edgerton being outscored in the third quarter. The final score was 22-10 in favor of Edgerton. Evansville took a game from Fort Atkinson by a score of 24-14-. Soon after the game started, Evansville was well on its way to winning, half-time score being 13-4 for them. The second half was much faster and evenly fought. The sensational shooting by Evansville was the feature of the game, although Glover, of the Fort team, was high score man, ringing up ten points for his team. Oregon and Stoughton met on the fioor in what was to be the final game. Stoughton was plainly outclassed and succumbed to the score of 15-S. Because of results of earlier games it became necessary for Jefferson to play Edgerton and for Oregon to play Fort Atkinson the second time during the tournament. The second Edger- ton-jefferson game was even more hotly contested than the first. The score at the end of the first quarter was 1-1, showing the very close guarding by each team. jefferson weakened in the second half and fell by the score of 11-4. Edgerton was now to play for third place. Oregon and Fort Atkinson met the second time for battle and it was probably one of the hardest fought games of the whole tournament. The Fort team won by playing an overtime period with the score 20-16. Oregon showed lots of fight and had that team not been so Eagnpered by lack of weight and height, many teams would no doubt have trembled and fallen e ore it. Edgerton took third place by defeating Fort Atkinson 11-9. It was a fast game and the Fort team was very close to winning several times. The final game of the tournament called the fans from all the neighboring towns and there was scarcely room for those who wanted to see the' closing game. This game between Evansville and Union was by far the fastest played, although the score does not show itg 21-7 in favor of Evansville. Union opened the scoring, but from the beginning of the second quarter Evansville gained control, and the task of dropping the sphere through the hoop be- came a common occurrence. Chadsey of Milton Union played a splendid game, and Evans- ville's guarding was sensational. Therefore, the cup was awarded to Evansville as the winner of the Twelfth Annual Basketball Tournament. High School Tournament 1923 The Thirteenth Annual Tournament of Milton College opened with West Allis and Whitewater Normal High as contestants. The playing was even for the first quarter but Tratt of Whitewater soon located the ring and dropped in five baskets at will. The Normal High team outplayed their opponents and showed a very effective defense. Whitewater was leading when the final gun was fired by a comfortable margin of 15-5. Watertown defeated Monticello in the second game to the tune of 13-7. It was a close game throughout, and Monticello was forced to use long shot tactics. Podolski and Shultz made all the points for Watertown. l W Page One Hundred Sixteen -in :'-.1 1. .u.xu:.,gw.' qv .gf-:-'-.::..f, .H -,,,,f. . ,.. ,.,.,, ,. ,,, ., I. ,. , , , fi .,-5,11 tip.-e.1.g 1, -- LLC 1- : ff.

Oregon led by a 7-5 score at the end of the first half. VVaterloo lost one of their best men because of injuries, which crippled the team. Oregon soon took the lead and rang up scores quite rapidly. The game ended 27 to 9 with Oregon on the long end. Whitewater met Oregon in the next game, and things soon began to look black for the latter team. The playing was strenuous and even as evidenced by the score at half time, VVhitewater leading 4 to 3. VVhitewater maintained its lead and finished by winning the game by the score of 14 to 9. West Allis and Waterloo played the fifth game of the tourney. West Allis came out on top but she was pushed hard to win by the close score of 15 to 14. The playing was quite fast during the whole game, but especially so during the last quarter. This period was a whirlwind from start to finish. Union and Watertown met on the floor in a fight to the finish. There was much erroneous shooting for the basket. Both teams fouled quite freely. It was nobody's game until the last few seconds of play. The final score was 13 to ll in favor of WVatertown. The Lake Mills five next met the Monticello tossers. These two teams were two of the most evenly matched in the tournament so made an interesting game. The fioor work of Richards of Monticello was exceptionally good. The high scorer was Roach of Lake Mills, who shot two field goals and made six successful free throws. The game ended for Monti- cello, 17 to 14. One of the most thrilling games of the entire tournament was that between Union and Lake Mills. An overtime period was necessary to decide the final score, Milton Union took the game 17-13. Sunby of Union was high score man of the game. Local dope was upset somewhat when Oregon defeated Union by 20-14. The game was fast throughout but Oregon scored first and held the lead to the end of the game. Madsen of Oregon scored high for his team and played a hard, clean game. Monticello lagged a little in the first part of the game with West Allis but soon sprinted to the lead and piled up a fair margin to their credit. Score: Monticello 18, VVest Allis 8 To decide third place, Monticello met Oregon in a fast, clean game. Oregon started the scoring but the teams played so evenly that at the half they were practically tied. However, Oregon soon started to score again and ran up a comfortable lead, finishing ahead in the game, 16 to 11. The Hnal game of the tournament was played between Watertown and VVhitewater. Of course, it was a hard fought game from start to finish as both teams were strong and composed of the larger men taking part in the tournament. Whitewater was leading by quite a margin at the end of the first half, but in the second half the players from upstate tightened their defense. At the same time they did some wonderful playing, which took Whitewater by storm and set them completely off their guard. Watertown kept cool and played consistently and in the last few minutes of the' game passed the mark set by her opponents, and took the game 14 to 10. This gave Watertown the championship of the tournament and the cup. The selections for all-tournament teams follow: FIRST TEAM SECOND TEAM Richards, Monticello ............... ........ F . E.

On account of lack of funds, equipment, and experienced men, only two meets were arranged, one at Platteville on lVIay 15 and one at Whitewater on May 29. As was expected, these meets were lost by substantial scores, but the experience and the increased interest among the men in track work made the attempts well worth while. There was noticeable improvement in the work of the men as the season ad- vanced, and with better facilities for practice Nlilton should be able to put a creditable team in the field. Track brought out between 20 and 25 men who worked hard and diligently for places on the College team. However, due to the many other calls on the time of the men at that season of the year, practice was rather irregular and the best results Were, therefore, not obtained. Most of the reliable point winners were also on the baseball squad. The first intercollegiate meet with Platteville Normal on hlay 15th followed immediately after the Platteville-Milton baseball game and was run off on the Platteville fair grounds. The result was an easy victory for Platteville by the score of 87 to 26. lVlilton-showed well on the track but was entirely outclassed in the field events. lVIilton's only first place was won by Oakley in the 440 yard dash. All of the records were low due to the fact that most of the men competing took part also in the baseball game just preceding. Platteville won the relay race by about ten yards. The following men took part in the meet: Vincent, Oakley, Johnson, Terwilliger, G. Sayre, R. Sayre, C. Hill, Hutchins, Chadsey, and Gridley. The second intercollegiate meet was held with Whitewater Normal at Wliite- water on the afternoon of lVlay 29. Here, as at Platteville, hflilton did well on the track, winning 40 to 37, but VVhitewatcr won all but ZZ points in the field events. First places were won by Oakley in the 220 yard low hurdles, by Scobie in the half mile, and by Russell Hill in a spectacular finish of the two mile race.

Hill, Terwilli- ger, Bingham, Johnson, Oakley, and Vincent. These men are to be especially com- mended for their faithful work throughout the season. An indoor interclass meet for men was held in the gymnasium April -l-. The Freshmen won the'meet with 79 points, while the Sophomores collected a total of 22 points to 16 for the Juniors. The Seniors did not enter a team. Although the Freshmen won hy a large margin, there was keen competition for first honors in some of the events. The relay, consisting of four men from each class, each man running four laps, was won by the Freshmen. I The Juniors won three iirsts, the Sophomores one, and the Freshmen nine. Ter- williger and Seagcr were tied for first honors with a total of 17 points each. Class numerals were given to the winners of first place in each event.

This Track Meet was held in the College Gymnasium on March 16. For some reason the juniors and Seniors did not take part more than to assist Coach Crandall in judging the events. Surely it was not because of lack of athletes capable of competing in such a meet. It was, therefore, another contest between the first- and second- year men. - The final score, Sophs 60 and Frosh 56, shows to some degree the evenness of the matched events which in turn caused much excitement among the few spectators. A noteworthy result of the 1923 Meet was that all records save one of the 1922 classic were broken. This would show that there is in the Freshman class some promising track material, and that, by a combination of the two, Milton should make a better showing in its track work for 1923. Eight Sophomores won numerals by capturing first place in that many events, while only four Freshmen won the same award. High score man was found in the Class of '26, Gillaspy winning 16 points. Six men, four Sophs and two Frosh, scored more than five points each. Fourteen events were started, but, because all contestants were disqualified in the 2-I--lap walk, only thirteen events were completed. The relay, last event of the Meet, caused the usual excitement and was free from the mixup which took place in last year's race.

Baseball 1922 The baseball season of 1922 opened immediately after the Easter recess with a wealth of material and enthusiasm. It soon developed, however, that no experienced pitcher was avail- able, and Coach Crandall gave this position particular attention in preparing for the season. The first game was played at Milton with our nearest rival, Whitewater, on April 26. This game was a veritable slugfest, as both sides pounded the ball fast and furious. Milton started off with a rush in her half of the inning and tallied three times. This was tied' by Whitewater in the second inning. The game continued in this manner until the sixth inning when Milton knocked the VVhttewater pitcher out of the box and scored five runs. At their last bats, Whitewater made a desperate rally and crossed home plate three times, but they had to be satisfied with losing the game 7 to 9. In this game, Milton's ability to field con- sistently and to hit the ball more than compensated for the inexperienced pitching. The second game of the season was also at Milton against the Platteville School of Mines. This game was an intensified repetition of the slugfest with Whitewater. The Miners came with a feared reputation of being heavy hitters and certainly acted up to their reputation. The first man up got a deep hit. So did the second. The third reached first base in safety on an error, letting one man score. The fourth man drove the ball into deep center field filling the bases. Then the Miners' Irish captain and catcher of old fame approached the plate, calmly looked over the situation and deliberately banged the ball out of sight for a home run. Five scores and one out in the first inning. It should be noted here, that the Milton players were not in the least nervous or discouraged and that these hits were all clean. But at this 951 .-, I I 4, ,MW w,,,,5,:i ,.,E 11.6,-3 x, U, .Si-1 V, mi, ,iv ,fa 1 M.: it .. .f....'fafff age One Ilzurdred Tfwenly-Ifwo F DES point the team decided that the Miners had had enough encouragement and threw the next three Miners out at first base. The score continued 5 to O until Milton came to bat in her half of the third, and when the smoke of battle had drifted away a little, Milton had six runs and the Miners a new pitcher. But the team, didn't stop there, but scored two runs every inning, including a home run by Oakley, with a man on base. The Miners made a splendid effort to tie the score in the ninth inning, but Arrington drove, Chadsey in with the winning run when Milton came to bat, with the score 13 to 12. Probably the most popular trip that Milton Athletes ever take is the Platteville-Campion three-day baseball trip with its never-to-be-forgotten escapades. On May 15th, the 'team started from Janesville at four o'clock in the morning for Platteville with high spirits and a perfect record. However, a very potent taboo seemed to hover over the Milton team through- out their three-day trip. They lost to Platteville 8 to '4 in a spiritless game. The features of this game were Platteville's star pitcher, Milton's poor fielding, and Kakuske's home run which excused him from taking part in the dual track meet immediately following the game. The next day Milton was to play a return game with the Platteville School of Mines, but it rained six entire hours, leaving the Platteville clay to act like the Mississippi in spring. After journeying to Campion by means of much changing of cars, including the famous narrow-gauge railway, the team found the weather very blustery. The game that followed was even more blustery. Somehow, amid superfiuous errors, hits, numerous home runs, wind, clouds of dust, rain, wild rooters, who Hocked out onto the field to try to see what was going on in the dust storm, and a loyal umpire, a game of five innings was completed, but of which no score keeper could keep track except in rare spots. Our score book looks as if it had the leprosy over that game. Some say Milton lost the game 14- to 16, others say Mlilton won by a few scores, and still others frankly admit they don't know. Have it any way that suits you. The next game was a return game with Whitewater, and since there was a game the next day which would be too much for one pitcher, Oakley had to pitch. Milton got thirteen, hits to VVhitewater's sixg made nine errors to their five, and got six scores to their seven. One of the bright spots in this game was when Jerry Sayre got a home run bringing in two scores ahead of him. The next day Milton played Northwestern College at Milton. Milton was unable to solve the offerings of the opposing pitcher, who got fourteen strike-outs. The game was clean and close, but Northwestern won 2 to 1. The annual Farm Bureau picnic was held on June 6th, and a large crowd watched Milton win a splendid game two to one from the local Crescents. On june 9th, Milton journeyed to Northwestern College firmly resolved to solve the troublesome pitcher's delivery and get revenge for their defeat at Milton. The first man to bat for Milton flied out. The next five scored. The game was won before the second out and the Northwestern team lost the last remnant of pep. Milton scored almost every inning with Gridley pitching in wonderful form. Northwestern didn't get a hit or a man on base until the last inning, when they got two hits but were unable to score. The game ended 10 to 0 in Milton's favor. The last game of the season was the animal Alumni game on June 14. Terrifying rumors were substantiated when a formidable array of old timers appeared in various styles and colors of uniforms to represent the Alumni. lt was a good snappy game which furnished endless fun for players and spectators, but which ended disastrously for the Old Timers, to the tune of thirteen to three. Thus a very successful season closed, Milton winning five out of eight games. One Of the outstanding features of this season's team was their ability to hit the ball, which, coupled with fairly good fielding and steady pitching, gave them their advantage. Throughout the season a spirit of clean play, and good fellowship, and marked cooperation was evident. Following are the summaries: Player AB R H Bat. Ave. PO A E Field Ave. H.

OAKLEY, CAPTAIN. SECOND TEANI BASKETBALL fffozzlirzlzed from Page 1111 On the night of February 8, 1923, the Seconds again came into play, against St. Patrick's of Janesville. Although the game went to the visitors, some excellent material was seen in the team. Glover and Maris made good showings, and with more experience they should stand well for the Varsity team. The score was 18 to 12. Another game played against an Edgerton aggregation meant defeat for the Sec- onds to the tune of 15 to 5. TlIe College men were not used to the smaller gym- nasium and could not warm into the play for reasons unknown. Bentz and Pierce were the only' scorers in this game. The second team does not get a regular schedule to work to, and the men do not have much opportunity to work together as a team. Especially this year has this been true when disruption occurred in the Varsity five, taking some of the men from the second team to fill vacancies. A complete record of this team's activities has not been kept so a definite summary cannot be given.

Professors Inglis and Kenyon accompanied the team. The score was as follows: SINGLES Oakley vs. Pickard ........,....... ...... ....... 0 - 6 3-6 Daland vs. Gotfriedson .................................. l-6 1-6 DOUBLES Oakley-Daland vs. Tredwell-Aagensen.- 4-6 0-6 2-6 Thus Madison won, 3 matches to 0. Gotfriedson, who opposed Daland, was for- merly Conference Champion, and the other members of the University team were sea- soned players, so the result was not discouraging to the team. On May 4-th Milton College entertained Wittig, johnson, and Walsh, of Cam- pion College, and playing was started at 3:00 p. m. SINGLES Daland vs. Walsh... ......................... ......, 6 -1 6-0 DOUBLES Oakley-Daland vs. Wittig-Johnson ................ 2-6 5-7 Due to the fact that the doubles match counted two points and the singles only one, Campion won the match by a 2 -1 score. The feature of the match was the fre- quent and effective lobbing of the Campion players.

The feature of this match was the fine behavior of the team in tight places,.Where they always seemed to tighten up and take just the needed points. The team was un- usually well supported by the students, who returned to the courts in a body after the baseball game. in 'x yi' .vI.- .L:': rj. ls.. ',-3.45-'K'-' VI 'I-U" '.. 1.'-""" U""- - Hwy!

The next event was an exhibition match between Phil Neer and James Davies, won by the former, 6-3, 8-6. This was a fine finish for our tennis season, in that it gave opportunity for Milton tennis enthusiasts to see in action two of the best college players in America. It might be mentioned that Neer won the intercollegiate cham- pionship of the United States soon after playing in Milton. It is my sad duty also to mention the alumni match which occurred on June 16th. The scores cannot be given as the matches were not covered by any student reporter, and as a result they were not published. Althoupgh not included in the summary for this season, the old fellows deserve credit for their victory. Three matches, all single events, were played. Shaw of the alumni defeated Thorngate, Randolph of the alumni defeated Oakley, and Place tied with Daland, the match being incomplete on account of physical exhaustion. Result, the alumni won two matches and tied one.

Chance favored some with easy opposition, while others had to suffer be- cause of drawing of a more experienced player. The first round of matches were all played off by the eighth of lVIay. There were thirty-two entrants who drew for positions in the tourney. The winners of the first round played the winners of the group classed with them. Thus the winner of the number one group played the winner of the number two group. Interest in the tournament ran high. It was commendable that the event was not confined to the few best players in school, but many who knew little about the game showed interest enough to take their chances along with the r-est and learn tennis better. ' Those who were in -school need not be told who took the championship, for Charles Kneeland's ability at wielding the tennis racket is well known. Kneeland defeated R. Burdick in the finals, June 4, in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4. Those reaching the semi-finals were M. N. Davis, R. Burdick, Prof. W. D. Burdick, and C. S. Kneeland. R. Burdick defeated Davis, 6-l, 6-3, for the right t0 go into the last round, and Kneeland defeated VV. D. Burdick by the same score. The co-eds have also taken a lively interest in the game of tennis and staged a Singles Tournament in 1922. Experience was lacking among them, but as it was with the men's tournament, they came out with interest to learn the game. Sixteen girls entered the contest. The first round of the tourney was completed about May 25. This gave several of the girls good practice for the one out-of-town game. This game Was played in Janesville, June 9, against a team from the Y. W. C. A. ,Qur representatives lost the doubles match but won the singles. Playing in thefdoubles were Jessie Post and Doris Randolph, who lost by the score of 6-3, 8-6. Lack of recent practice was perhaps the greater cause for losing this match. The singles match was between Etta Hodge, Milton, and Bessie Allen, Janes- ville. Miss Hodge played a steady, all-around game, never serving doubles, and seldom missing a retu1'n shot. The Final score fell in favor of Etta, 7-5, 6-3. It is to be regretted that this sport cannot be made more of an intercollegiate event for the girls, thus enabling them to win the large M, or first award. fr 'VET -"-.

Al- CARROLL F. OAKLEY though he partook in every sport which the College indulged "Oak" in, his favorites seemed to be baseball and basketball. He Ten awards 1' handled the third baseman job in good style and helped his Four chevrons team wonderfully when on the defense. "Oak" starred at Four bars. basketball, playing four years, and laid up much credit for himself in this intercollegiate sport. When tennis became recognized as a man's game, Carroll went into it with a vim and determination char- acteristic of his other athletic accomplishments. He made the College team and gave good battle to all his opponents. Then, when football was again taken up as an inter- collegiate sport, Oakley took a swing at it. Playing an end position, he got well along in learning the game, but finished his schooling too soon to be in a winning team. Oakley's love for Milton and her athletics is evidenced by the fact that he took up teaching in his Alma Mater and takes a hand at assisting in the coaching of the various College teams. "Herb" is the next in line of high holders of first awards. He took part in all activities except tennis and track during the four years he spent in College. Kakuske is an experienced man in basket- HERBERT P. KAKUSKE ball, and has won many honors for himself in his playing "Herb" for the Brown and Blue. "Herb"' played a steady game, not Nine awards allowing the enemy to stampede him, and might be called the Four chevrons balance wheel of the team with which he played. Playing Three bars. forward or guard he sank many counters for lVIilton. Her- bert piloted the College Five through its season of 1921-22. When football was re- vived, Kakuske went into the game and showed up well as a mainstay of the team. Like Oakley, however, he was' not in school long enough to be on a winning team. His interest in baseball is of long standing, having had a hand at the game since a lad. He filled the position of center fielder and did much for Milton's offensive game, clouting the horsehide frequently. Kakuske is at present working with the City Engineer of Janesville. One of the best Hoor men in basketball that Milton ever produced, "Pede" gleaned many honors for himself in this sport. In spite LEO. L.

He played basketball and baseball three years, Four chevrons and along with his fellows, took up with the game of foot- Three bars ball as it was introduced in 1921. Because of his good stand- ing and high sportsmanship, thus being a favorite among his teammates, he was unanimously elected to captain Mi1ton's football squad through its 1921 schedule. "Pede" was out of the game a part of the time because of in- juries, but when he was in a game there was added pep and fight because of his personality and ability to get the maximum out of his men.

Along with the above mentioned sports, Gerald has participated in the track work of the Col- lege, lending it loyal support and taking part in its meets. Milton will lose a good man when he steps out with the Classe of '23. Although not making himself rich with scores for the basketball teams in which he has played, he is right there when it comes to the de- OTTO O. DILLNER fensive game. As a guard, few can come up to "Dilly's" "Dilly" ability. You will always find him in good spirits and Four awards ready to boost his College and its activities. Because of Two chevrons his ability in basketball and his good personality, he took Two bars charge of the basketball team in its 1922-'23 season when captain-elect A. G.

Being a member of the Class of '25, Milton hopes to have his practical support in athletics for some time to come. With the exception of 1921-122, Joe's athletic program only embraced the sport of baseball. He always manifested a pleasing personality under all circumstances and was a friend of all. Johnson JOE F.. JOHNSON tackled the game of football along with the rest in the "Joe" Fall of '21 and made the team in that sport. His work Four awards was worthy of a first award.

Milton is indebted to him for some excellent work as second baseman on the College nine last year. He is always on the job, lending a splendid personality to his tasks.

He is a high-ranking man in tennis, and is a comer in that field. Teamed with Charles Kneeland of Battle Creek, a team was made which some Colleges forfeited to rather than run the risk of defeat.

The year 1923-24 will be the last of the three-year athletic program inaugurated by the Alumni Board in the Fall of 1921. This program consisted chiefly in the taking over by the Board of the responsibility of carrying on athletics at Milton and in the employment of a resident physical director and coach. Whether or not the present program will be carried on be- - yond- the coming year will depend largely upon its success in 1923-2-1. Q - lt has been sufficiently successful to warrant its continuation next lt f 1' z 4 I . V n 'S , ff, if. f year. H ' ' iffy 1 Football at Milton has passed the experimental stage and is now A if-5 ' established as a close rival to basketball, if not actually surpassing it in popularity. The plan undertaken last year of playing the home ug l 1' I , 1 -' games in Janesville to permit of greater gate receipts will be con- . A tinued next year. A six-or seven-game schedule is being arranged. Out of the chaos of the past year a smooth working and dependable basketball team was finally developed almost entirely from first and second year men. With one exception, these men expect to enter I bye school next fall, so more favorable results may be expected from the ' ff.. ,y f 192-l season. Baseball has nearly always been successful at Milton ii ' and will be continued in so far as games can be arranged and funds provided. It is hoped that there will be a constantly increasing inter- est in track until it becomes the chief Spring sport. However, real success in track cannot be expected until a well equipped track is available for practice. VVith the completion of five new courts more emphasis will be placed upon tennis both for men and women, with tournaments in the Fall as well as in the Spring. Since tennis is one of the best forms of moderate outdoor activity, special induce- ments are offered to interest as many students as possible in the game. Intercollegiate matches have been difficult to arrange because few of the neighboring schools sup- port tennis teams, but if funds are available several college matches will be scheduled each Spring. The construction of the five new tennis courts on the ground immediately south of the gymnasium has given impetus to the desire for a track and a football field on the campus. Ground of sufficient area is now owned by the College and could be satisfactorily used for the purpose if money were at hand to bear the expense oof grading. Such an athletic field is almost essential to the College, if it is to meet the requirements of increased growth. It is hoped that this need will be recognized and fulfilled within a few years. Steps toward that end are now being undertaken by the Department.

The Humble Prune "The humble prune of song and story Is menlioued oft but not with glory." As I sit here at my desk and watch with detail-devouring eyes the prune which is placed before me, impaled on a hat pin, and propped in the angle formed by my Wool- ley and VVebster's extraordinarily complete and comprehensive compendium of the words of the English language and other useful information, I am amazed at the won- ders displayed in this small and insignificant representative of the vegetable kingdom. This small, irregularly shaped, shriveled, and ancient object, which was once a round, fat, luscious, juicy, purple plum, hanging on a beautiful. tree in the semi-tropical climate where such delicious fruits abound, shows in the wrinkles and furrows which are evident upon its skin all the signs of an advanced stage of dessication, which state has enabled it successfully to withstand the ravages of decay and dissolution and by its notable portability and the wonderful and incomprehensible manner in which it outlasts the elapse of time, to become the staple sauce of the boarding house table, to supplant all others, and to be the salvation of the mistress of the establishment and the eternalicurse which fate has decreed on the boarders. "Despise it not, for some declare it Of fruits to have the greatest merit." R. W. C. '25. -1 Morning I stopped and threw up the shade to let the' last gleams of the fading moon flow through the open window and cast wierd shadows over the room. Somewhere in the distance, a cock crowed, foretelling the coming of dawn. A bird outside my win- dow started a sleepy chirping to its little mate. The herd of dairy cattle aroused and shook themselves, and moved slowly to the trough of sparkling water, each patiently waiting its turn. From the hennery a small group of energetic biddies were busily engaged in getting their early morning tid-bits, cackling and clucking among themselves like an afternoon sewing circle. Two sleek and sleepy-looking tabbies climbed fence posts and promptly dosed off while awaiting their' saucer of milk. Pigs grunted and squealed good naturedly in their pens, and fond mothers started their curly-tailed offspring on their morning search for adventure. Horses neighed and stamped impatiently in their stalls, anticipating their breakfasts and a leisurely day in the grass-adorned pasture. From the top of the tallest cottonwood, a thrush was pouring out his heart in trill upon trill of liquid song. This was the busy scene upon which "Old King Sol" looked as he thrust his radi- ant race out from behind the shelter of hills. It seemed to me that he smiled and chuckled to himself.

They wheeled their horses and parted-one to the up hill struggle of beginning life anew, a stranger in a little Northwest mining towng the other to the down hill grade of vice and filth and adventure of the new country. Q Two years rolled by. One morning Captain Sherburn sat talking to his lieutenant as they toasted their feet by the stove in the office of the R. N. W. M. P. at Wolf Creek, "We've got to appoint a sergeant to take Morton's place." "Yes, too bad that egg bumped him off. He was a good man." "He sure left some shoes to fill. What do you think of Curly lVIoore ?" "He's been with us two years and proved himself a fightin' fool. We don't know anything about him, but that's nothin' against a man out here. Let me think a minute." The lieutenant thought of the traditions of the service that was his all. He thought of the unwritten law that says that every trooper shall get his man dead or alive, or leave his wolf-picked bones as a memorial of his dwotion to duty. He thought of the gravity of the situation. They were about to choose a man who would have the opportunity to brighten or mar the glory of the service. He thought that Curly could be relied upon to uphold the standards of the "Mounted." The lieutenant's reverie was broken by the slaming of the barracks' door. A muffled figure burst into the office. "A guy just stuck up the Last Chance saloon an' killed Joe Monahan the barkeep. He beat it out the west trail with a dog team." The captain turned to Moore who had come to the doorway with the rest of the men to hear the news. Here was an opportunity to prove the wisdom of his choice. "You heard what this fellow said? l'll wire the rest of the lads to be on the lookout and you get that man." Down was just breaking when the pursuer first glimpsed the quary. The fugi- tive, confident that he had eluded pursuit, was preparing a hurried meal on the Hat surface of a huge boulder swept clear of snow by the driving wind. His back was to the trooper. A sensation of supreme elation came over the minion of the law-a feel- ing of duty about to be well done, a difficult task about to be creditably accomplished. He drew his service revolver and crept forward. The soft snow gave no warning of his presence. He reached the rock unnoticed. He scaled it noiselessly. But a yard intervened between the two. Now but a footl His hand fell on the other's shoulder, his revolver dug into the other's ribs. "I arrest you in His Majesty's-Lou!"

He saw that same face distorted with pain and purple-a cruel rope-the Dominion law offers no alternative. He saw those hands- those hands that had saved his life---clenched in the stiffness of sudden death. He thought of his duty and the traditions of the service. He thought of his promise to Lou. The tears welled up in his eyes. VVith a mighty effort he took his revolver by the barrel and stretched it out to Lou. "We can't both live, Lou! You saved my life: I owe it to you. Take it. "Noi Curly, no! I ain't sunk so low. I can't do it. It ain't fair. We can't both live. Letls Hip a coin. That's a fifty-fifty break." "Heads!" "Tailsl" The coin descended.

There is a sense in which Shakespeare is a greater glory to England than the empire of India. Homer and Vergil, Plato. and Tacitus are a gift made by the ancient world to all the ages more precious because more enduring than any achievements in war or govern- ment or commerce." Does this principle hold true for America also? What is our most distinctive contribution to the culture of the world? Shall we point to our achievements in six wars, from seventy-six to nineteen seventeen, or to the U. S. Supreme Court, or to the Panama Canal? Or, may possibly the statesman-philosopher Bryce be correct,- nnay it perhaps be that a great man is really greater than all the line or useful things which clever men know how to produce? Personality, then, rises into supreme im- portance.

Can other nations at all appreciate this one part of our gift-that singular, racy, inimitable product of our Kentucky soil, Abraham Lincoln? Indeed, not all Americans understood Lincoln from the first. But as the "patient, brave, forseeing man" won his way and proved himself the master-pilot, gradually the people came to understand him, and they loved him more and more. At least he has taken a place in our affections that none other can approach. The boy who had such thirst for learning that he traced letters with charcoal on bits of wood, on the cabin floor, on the sand by the creek, who read everything he could get his hands on, Web- ster's Speller, Aesop's Fables, Pilgrim's Progress, the Lives of Franklin and Washing- ton,-the boy who opened Henry Clay's Speeches, a Democrat by inheritance, and closed the book a Whig by conviction,-the boy who stood by the winter grave of his mother with only neighbors to offer prayers, and who resolved that one day a minister should preach a sermon over that graveg who in the spring carried out his purpose and prevailed upon a clergyman to ride horseback over two hundred miles that the thing might be done,-this is the boy, these are the traits that we have enshrined in our hearts. We see the young man making his own Hatboat, taking the river trips to New Orleans, chopping in the woods faster and harder than any other pioneer. We see him clerking in Offutt's store with scrupulous honesty. We see him as postmaster of the little village of New Salem, not for the few dollars a year, but because it gave him a chance to read more newspapers, always reading more, always grasping for knowledge. We see him learn to be a surveyor, much sought after on account of his accuracy and fairness in plotting farms. VVc see him sharing the work and the sports of the bullies and roughnecks of the frontier, without stooping to their vulgarity. Wesee him read law diligently and we watch him travel through that long period of twenty-five years from 1835 to 1860--the Illinois lawyer and politician, always hammering out his ideas with effort and with care, always undercharging his clients and overblaming himself, always engaged in doing thc greatest thing that he ever did, in building his own character of earnestness, truthfulness, and purity. As we pass through his politi- cal utterances, we observe the expansion of his mindg we admire the Hclearness of his statements, the unanswerable style of his reasoning, and especially his illustrations which are romance and pathos and fun and logic all welded together." When in 1858 his soul became fired with that great cause, the non-extension of slavery into the ter- ritories, he was at times transfigured, like some grand Hebrew prophetg his was the eloquence of thought, not of' rhetoric. He strove, not so much to beat his opponent, as to convince the people. After his election in 1860, we hear his voice as he writes to his friend, the Hon. Mr. E. B. Washburn: "My dear Sir: "There is no possible compromise upon slavery extension, whether it be a Mis- souri line or Eli Thayer's 'Popular Sovereignity'g it is all the same. Let either be done, and immediately extending slavery re-commences. On that point hold firm, as with a chain of steel. Yours as ever, A. L1NcoLN. Finally on that cold drizzly day we see him in the station at Springfield, standing on the rear platform of the train. Sadly, in silence, he looks at the crowd for several V N S it 5 VQ11. 1, X5-Q-Hi. gizaspsa., ,ra-,if.3f'-2-E EE'-:--?l4:fvah . :V ,V 3 -ff,-.153 1,i-wa-,,, ,M ,.,,-L 4, - Y- ,t. .4 Q-:M .1 it -, 7 .n,..,,, , ,-1-Q . it QQ! trams f: i- .V .. - ' , -,ff .:., u .1 ::'- ,N :i -.r,,,, -r -..-tgirl. tw. :,- .-:HQ-1 fE,S.a?!5?

Then he tells them that his task is the most difficult that has fallen to the lot of any man since Washington. This is- the true Lincoln, the man we love, grown in the West, hammered and beaten into shape by thirty years of hard frontier life in Illinois. The White House had little to give him but labor and sorrow. I recollect a cartoon which appeared a few years ago in the Chicago Tribune. The first picture showed Lincoln in 1860, his head not so large, but Seward and Chase, and one or two others much larger, overstopping Lincoln, and in the background the dome of the Capitol rising above all. The second picture was in 1865. The dome of the Capitol still rose above all, but in the foreground Lincoln was now a large figure and the other men, though still visible were very small. The third picture represented Lincoln after half a century. The other statesmen of the Civil War period had now disappeared entirely, and Lincoln towered alvove houses and trees, above the dome of the Capitol itself, a gigantic figure, colossal, impressive, commanding. Such has come to be the perspective' of fifty years. It is this great central figure that has been seen not only by America, but by the world. During the terrible days of the late world conflict men gazed at it ever the more. In England they read Lord Charnwood's "Life of Lincoln." Inspired by this John Drinkwater wrote his play, Abraham Lincoln, and thousands of the British pub- lic with many soldiers returning from France, came to know Lincoln through this play. Then H. G. Wells places Lincoln among the six greatest men in all history "not merely because of his own greatness, but because of the greatness of the spirit of Ameri- ca, which he, better than any other American, embodies and exemplifies." But men not only admire and reverence Lincoln, they also feel that his is the deep-humanity which responds to his fellowmen. Thus, in the midst of the recent tremendous war, men's thoughts turned to Lincoln, as we can clearly see by Vachel Lindsay's lines: It is portcntous and a thing of state . That here at midnight in our little town A mourning figure walks, and will not rest, Near the old courthouse, pacing up and down. Or by his homestead or in shadowed yards He lingers where his children used to play, Or through the market on the well-worn stones He stalks until the dawn-stars burn away. A bronzed lank man! His suit of ancient black, A famous high-topped hat and plain worn shawl Make him the quaint great figure that men love, The prairie lawyer, master of us all. He cannot sleep upon his hillside now. He is among us :-as in times before! And we who toss and lie awake for long, Breathe deep, and start, to see him pass the door. fC01Ili7l1lL'1l on Page 2172 'sa 1: I gt .t- .-.i -7-105.3 Sq' 'A ,gs 's-1, 3.5 514- 52,3 it '1,e..1.L.f.f ps 51322 ssh: avia- Page One Hundred Forty-tfwo HETWUTUEE wx' 1,11 ,V .l , ,, A fa l .

S. Kennedy, has been firmly established as a branch of the Student Body activities. Since the issuing of the last Fides the Milton debaters have participated in thirteen inter-collegiate debates with such schools as Ripon, Carroll, Wheaton, and Northland. In the year 1921-22 the schedule included five debates, but, owing to cancella- tions by Eureka and Mount Morris Colleges, only three actually took place. The af- firmative team, consisting of R. H. Sholtz, G. D. Hargis, and j. E. Johnson, debated the question: "Resolved, that Congress should pass the Soldiers' Adjusted Compen- sation Act," with Carroll College, on the Milton platform. The decision of the judges was two to one in favor of the Milton debaters. The negative team, G. S. Kennedy, A. E. Skaggs, and C. E. Arrington, debated the same question with Carroll College at Waukesha and with Wheaton College at Wheaton. Both debates were closelv Contested, lvlilton winning from Carroll two to one and losing to Wheaton by the same score. Sholtz, as first speaker of the affirmative, did much to establish a firm foundation for his team by his logical thinking and careful delivery. Hargis depended for his suc- cess upon the smooth and ready How of his argument, burying his opponents under an avalanche of logic. Johnson added the finishing touches by his dramatic and emotional appeals. Kennedy opened the attack for the negative. His pleasant manner on the platform and his pleasing delivery were a decided asset to his team. Skaggs' outstanding characteristics were his forcefulness and fighting spirit. Ar- rington, a born negative man, showed an unusual ability in tearing down argument and ridiculing any weak statements of his opponents. These men on both teams were well suited to Work together, and, as their records show, they made two suc- cessful debate combinations. During the year which is now drawing to a close, the lVIilton debaters met the representatives of Carroll, Ripon, Northland, and Wheaton in six debates. With only two veterans out for the teams the prospects at the beginning of the season were not very bright. Of the eight candidates for places on the squad only four had ever appeared on a debating platform, however, in spite of this handicap, Coach Stringer managed to turn out two strong teams. The aflirmative was upheld by D. W. Cockfield, E. E. Samuelson, and G. S. Kennedy, with M. N. Davis as alternate. ifiwi, 1 yr---, ?5v,..bi.:., .-i.a:.5.m, ,-. ,,,--,.r.r:,,, -,y'1y,i.v, ,,.-2,-,.-,,. .-,,,,.,,,,A .I .,,,., ,- .. .4 -ii-f ki tene-1.1 G' .L -- 47.14 f- .1 .511 - A' .slit ff..1w- wfm. iq! if if A wel' li 5:63-f if ' Page One Hundred Forty-three COI.I.IiGE .ufFIkMA'1'Iv15 TE.-XM, 1922 col.l.15c:li NlsGA'r1vE TEAM, 1922 crimnczrz .-XFFIRglA'I'IVli TYEAM, 1923 Col,l.uf:u N15c:A'1'lvu 'r1sAM, 1923 Pagr 0111, Il1nnir1'd l"orIy-four .- .Wy if -fp IB, 9164112 '-:. gsfrig I-X 2 'EE 'Y ,a " fi' 532 -, iff ' f. :RUP V. ' The negative warriors were A. H. Babcock, R. W. Crosley, and C. E. Arrington. C. S. Kneeland was also on the negative team but left school before participating in any of the contests. The question was the same for all the debates: "Resolved, that the United States should join the League of Nations." The affirmative met the teams of Carroll and Northland Colleges at lVlilton and journeyed to Wheaton to meet the Wheaton College debaters. They triumphed over the Carroll and .Northland men two to one and three to nothing respectively, losing to Wheaton two to one. The negative team faced a more experienced and fluent set of opponents. ln spite of their ex- cellent preparation and logical debating, they were forced to bow to their smooth and polished adversaries. Although the balance sheet does not show a large per- centage in the victory column, the debaters and the school have every reason to feel that the past season has been a success. . Kennedy and Arrington were the only veterans on the squad, both having had two years of intercollegiate experience. Arrington's strong point was his ability to tear down his opponents' arguments. His logical thinking and piercing ridicule were much feared by his opponents. Kennedy, as third speaker for the affirmative, handled "the flowers". His final rebuttals were responsible to a considerable degree for the victories of his team. Crosley was the only other man with any experience. He debated last year as third speaker of the negative on the Freshman team. Crosley's work closely resembled that of his teammate, Arrington. His clever attack crushed many of his opponents' argument. Babcock, Samuelson, and Cockfield were some- what handicapped by inexperience. Babcock proved himself a logical thinker. Sam- uelson's fiery delivery and fighting spirit demonstratedhis ability to put across his points. The prospects for a busy and successful season next year seem to be unusually bright. Mr. Kennedy has secured offers for a triple debate between Carroll, Wheaton, and Milton Colleges. The negative team will take a northern trip, debating North- land at Ashland and perhaps other northern schools. Efforts are being made to secure dual debates with Lawrence and Ripon Colleges. Some promising debaters were discovered on the Freshman debate teams, and, with the men of this year's teams who will return, the College should make a creditable showing. Freshman Debating It has been the custom for several years for the Milton College Freshman Class to have a debating team. This team debates the Carroll Freshmen in a dual debate. In the year 1921-'22 the Freshman team argued the same question as the College team, namely: "Resolved, that Congress should pass the Veterans' Adjusted Com- pensation Act." 'The aflirmative team, Charles Kneeland, Lloyd Seager, and Charles Sutton, met the Carroll Freshmen on the Milton platform. They argued logically and well, but the Carroll team was strong and carried off the decision, two to one. R. J. McCubbin, R. K. Meyer, and R. W. Crosley journeyed to Waukesha to speak on the negative side of the question. The debate was close although the de- cision of the judges was unanimously in favor of Carroll. This year the Freshmen debated a different question from that of the College teams. lt was stated: "Resolved, that strikes in the public service industries and the coal mines should be prohibited by federal law." The affirmative, consisting of Albert Whitford, Norman Buending, and Wilbur Glover, defeated the Carroll fC07lfi7l1ll'tl on Page 1562 uso' ... ,..

There have been, in the past, a great many departments doing the work of the various student activi- ties, many of which overlap. Because of this overlapping it was thought best to incorporate these various branches under the student constitution. Thus the duties Of the Oratorical Association have been managed by a debate manager and his assistant. It has long been the custom for the four literary societies to hold separate oratorical contests within their own lyceums and then to send their representatives to compete in the annual inter-lyceum contest. Since there are two lyceums for women- Iduna and Miltonian-and two for men--Philomathean and Orophilian-first and second places have been given to both men and women. Formerly, and as was done Nj 1922, the first and second places in each division were given prizes in money. But since this source has been withdrawn no prizes were awarded in 1923. In 1922 llflilton College entered the State Oratorical League, now made up of Beloit, Ripon, Carroll, Lawrence, and lVIilton Colleges. From the winners of the first two places in both divisions of the inter-lyceum contest, the orator who will represent lVIilton College in the state oratorical contest is chosen by the Department of Public Speaking. The fact that Milton College was invited and did join the State Oratorical League signifies that she is taking a forward place in oratory. In the Inter-lyceum Contest of 1922, ilflr. E. VV. Vincent of the Orophilian Lyceum was awarded first place in the men's division, and lylr. L. Lanphere of the Philomathean Lyceum was awarded second place. lVIiss Gladys Hulett of the lVIil- tonian Lyceum received first place and Miss Ardis Bennett, also a Miltonian, sec- ond place. In the 1923 contest first place was awarded to H. R. Sheard, a Philomathean, second place going to L. D. Seager, an Orophilian. In the women's contest lVIiss Gladys Hulett again won first place, and lyliss Constance Bennett, also a lVIiltonian, won second place. hir, Sheard was chosen to represent lVIilton at the State Ora- torical Contest which was held at Carroll College, NVaulcesha, Wisconsin. Mr. Sheard received one vote for first place, although he ranked fifth in the percentage. The orations given by the students of lldilton College have always dealt with world problems, and this was particularly true in 1923.

The time has come when the United States should make good its promise to the Filipino and to the world. VVe stand pledged to the principle that nations great and small have an equal right to independence and that every people should be left free to determine its own policy. Why not then uphold our principles and make good our pledges to our great ward in the Far East? There exist in the Phil- ippines all the conditions and guarantees necessary for com- plete independence. There are five arguments against Philippine independ- ence which are adduced whenever the question comes up for discussion. These arguments are. First, that the Filipinos, if not actually semi-savage, are still fresh from that stage of human development called "savagery." Second, that the Filipino tribes hopelessly differ from one another in language and customs and, if free, would be continually fighting among themselves. Third, that the majority of the inhabi- tants do not desire independence. Fourth, that 'in dangerous proximity to these islands stands the frightful figure of ja- pan ready to seize the archipelago. Fifth, that to haul down E, yV, the American flag from the Philippines would jeopardize American interests in the Eastern Hemisphere. The first three of these arguments are the result of ignorance or misrepresentation. The fourth is nothing but a crude guess and cannot be proved. The fifth would incline one to be- lieve that America had launched herself upon an imperialistic policy. It is not true that the Filipino people are savages. There are about 500,000 non-Christian people in the archipelago, who it is true used to be in a state of savagery, dressed in scanty garments, and dwelling in the mountains with only the bow and arrow as their trusty com- panions. But the mountain tribe as well as the Moros, one of the more savagely inclined tribes, are rapidly being won over to the ways of civilization. Schools, hospitals, and churches have been founded among them. Many have been Christianized and enter into trade trans- actions with the rest of the natives. The significant fact, however, is that these people con- stitute but a small portion of the entire population of the islands, which is 10,500,000. There are ten million Christian Filipinos. Forty-five per cent of the people of ten years of age and over were able to read and write before the American came. The Spanish University of Manila is a quarter of a century older than Harvard. The percentage of literacy today is seventy per cent, This is higher than the percentage in Italy, Greece, Roumaniag higher than in most countries' whose independence has recently been recognized by the associated powers. I believe that the great majority of Americans think that twenty years ago the peo- ple of the islands were still in a crude state of development and that we have been responsible alone for the progress of the Filipino people. It is interesting in this connection to read the report of a Spanish explorer who wrote: "Three million people inhabit these different islands. They seemed to me no way inferior to those of Europe, they cultivate the soil intelligentlyg they are carpenters, cabinet makers, smiths, jewelers, Weavers, and masons. I have gone through their villages and I have found them kind, hospitable, and afliablef' But then it is said that despite their own civilization and the magnificent response which has been given to American education, they are not fit to be the directors of their own affairs. The record of the past twenty years stands as unmistakable evidence that the Filipino has a capacity for self--government. All of the provincial governors are Filipinos with a few exceptions and this fact holds true in all of the elective offices in the island government. The administration of the educational system is largely in Filipino hands. But they can never become a virile nation unless they are left to stand alone. The question of their fitness for self-government is for them to decide. Why take a different attitude in regard to the Philippines from what we take with 1'espect to Cuba? Is it right or just that we alone should attempt to determine the fitness of nations to be free, to condemn the imperialistic policies of other nations and then deliberately disregard the plea of an earnest people longing for freedom? Secondly, it is not true that the inhabitants of the Philippines are divided into antagonistic tribes, ready to spring at each other's throats. In the words of Mr. Taft, the word "tribe" 9 ,wa :ga H 2.,1 13? f'-1 1110: J-if '-fr 2521 iff: 'tag fs 554+ 1. .

Undoubtedly there is a racial solidarity among the Filipino people. From one end of the archipelago to the other the people have similar features and colorg their style of living and their customs are very much alike and they are being educated along the same lines. English is nearly the exclusive social and official language. There exists no antagonism whatever between the various peoples. Sectional riots have never taken place. The spirit of equal opportunity for all is abroad. The wealth of the islands is evenly distributed, giving rise to an intelligent middle class. There are no industrial combines, such as America hasg the leaders rise to power not through push or pull, but through grit and intellectual alertness. A Filipino has said: "We need not give instructions in a hundred per cent Philippinism. VVe need no apostles to preach that kind of gospel. We have no anarchists in our midst, no Bolshevists, no I. W. WV.'s. A Filipino, however hyphenated he be, loves his flag, which by American law he is not permitted to display. He loves his country. He would fight, bleed, and die for her." It is further prophesied that if independence is granted the people will quarrel, there will be rival fac- tlons, and they will have the capacity to accept adverse results. VVas not our own Civil War the greatest single factor that solidified our country, until today ours is the mightiest com- monwealth in the world? u In the third place it is not true that the Filipinos do not want independence. The recent mission that visited Washington represented the opinion of the overwhelming majority of the islanders, and that was to secure independence as soon as possible. They resisted America's Coming by force of arms. It was only after America announced that she came not.for pur- P0Ses of conquest, but for the purpose of lifting the islanders to a higher level, that they con- sented to remain under our control for the time being. This is not the plea of a raw, un- balanced populaceg it is the cry of an earnest people longing for freedom. 'The fourth argument that japan covets the Philippines is based on surmise. Some sen- sational newspapers would have us believe that japan will seize the islands the moment they HFC- free. By the same kind of statements a few years ago it was prophesied that Japan desired to invade America, and that America, unprotected as she was, would fall an easy prev. Years have passed and the prophecy has not been fulfilled. Will the prophecy be fulfilled in the case of the Philippines? I submit the following facts to disprove such an argument. To- Clily there are only 10,000 Japanese in the Philippines. In California there are 100,000 people f1'0ru that island kingdom. Does it not appear logical that if Japan intended to absorb the Islands, she would send an unlimited number of her subjects to reside there? We have made H0 provision to protect the Philippines against that kind of a conquest. Mr. H. G. NVells says: For -three hundred years japan waged no foreign warsg she was a peaceful self-contained llermlt. It was American enterprise that dragged her out of her seclusion, and fear of Europe that drove her to the practices of modern imperialism. They are not natural japanese Practices." She realizes that it would be unwise to add to her already scattered territory a group of islands numbering 3,000, all of which would need to be fortified and protected if she was to remain secure in her foothold. This argument intended to incite prejudice has been rightly termed "the japanese Bugaboo." The fifth argument sounds like that of a Kaiser. The traditional policy of America is against colonial expansion. From the beginning of the republic to the present time we have always adhered to that policy. WVhen I hear therefore men shouting that to withdraw from the Philippines means a falling to pieces of the republic, it would seem to me that they are attempting to overrule our traditions. The archipelago fell into our power by chance. Our Cotlnlry was startled when the news came that the American flag was flying over Philippine soll. Our presidents have from time to time announced that independence will be granted as SQ0n 'as a stable government has. been established. It appears from available facts that the Flllplno people are now abundantly able to do so. The islands have never been a part of the American republic. Our Constitution did not follow the flag to the islands. They are not American citizens as the people of Porto Rico or Alaska are. The granting of independ- CljQe'would not necessarily imperil America's interests in the Eastern Hemisphere. The Filipinos have expressed their willingness to provide for us coaling stations and naval bases In the -archipelago. These people owe much to America for what they are today and they 51129 neither ungrateful nor unreasonable. The sooner independence is granted the greater will be the tie that binds the two peoples together. In behalf of this people I wish to make an argument for fair play. There is no doubt but that the Filipino has been misrepresented. His defects have been exaggeratedg his virtues Pllshed aside. Let us compare the situation in the Philippines with the situation in America during Colonial days. The number of inhabitants in the United States at that time was et Page One Hundred Forty-nine !,u..,,Ll,.,-...T ,EJ .:.'.,,1 -V -,Jiri .:, I 5 under four million. The Philippines have double this. The ancestors of perhaps eight-tenths of the American colonists were English. Of the Filipinos at least as large a percentage are of one race. In economic conditions the United States was little advanced, although it abounded in natural resources, the same statement is true ot' the Philippines. I believe that the Filipino has as intense a desire to be free as the volunteers of the American revolution. The recent Governor General Harrison stated before Congress that the Filipino people are ready for an independent status as a nation. Dewey said in '98 that the Philippines possessed to a greater degree than Cuba, the ability to govern themselves. To many eyes it may appear that these people are crude in unnumhered ways, that their standard of living is very far behind that of America. But there are no arguments against their ability for self-governmentg for they are advanced in thought and ideas, realize the advantages and practice the ways of modern republicanism, and they have the intelligence that is essential in a democracy. VVe are warned by some politicians that this is not the time for talking independence, that the world is in a state of Huxg and yet, other small na- tionalities of the world were given their freedom before the smoke of battle from the late war had died away. 'Shall there be exceptions, then, in international justice? Must America sympathize with the cause of Ireland or Poland or of the Czecho-Slovaks? This is a question for American conscience to decide. Retention of the islands is sought to be justified on many grounds. Fear of aggression on the part of japan is the pre-eminent one. By thus hesitating we openly confess that America has failed to make the world safe for democracy. Clearly the Filipinos cannot hope to bc a strong nation or race unless left alone to face the trials of time. They are perfectly willing to take a chance. It is a manly attitude and should not he discouraged. It should command instead the admiration of this republic. Certainly it de- serves the encouragement and support of true Americans. On this question there can be no nentrals. WVe are enlisted with the forces of imperialism or democracy. On which side do you, the citizens of this republic, intend to stand? Today Decides Our Tomorrow History teaches us that nations do not perish without an adequate moral cause, and this cause is the corruption of the life and manners of the people. In their early stages, nations cherish certain religious and moral ideas which guard the sanctity of the home. VVhen these are lost, degradation fol- lows and the nations decline. The character and actions of an individual affect the character and actions of his country and if these characteristics are not pure and righteous, the nation will first decline and later perish. Such is the teach- ing of history. Assyria was strong and powerful. Her armies con- quered Asia, but by cruelty, injustice, and lack of sympathy with the conque1'ed, she perished. The empire of Persia fell and passed away, because of her corruption of life, and laxity of morals. Rome enjoyed universal empireg she was mistress of the world, but by iniustice, by harsh and dishonest govern- ment, by wide-spread personal corruption, by luxury and un- clean living, the gigantic fabric of her commonwealth per- ished from the earth. GLADYS During the sixteenth century Spain was all-powerfulg her armies dominated Europe, her fleets brought her wealth from the new world, but by selfishness her dominions fell away, and her proud power crumbled. Have we not seen just recently the German empire shaken and dismemberedg and why? Her sellishness, greed, and cruelty brought the reward which they always bring, and Germany today must drink the cup of humiliation. What these nations did yesterday decided their today. What we do today decides our t0m0l'l'0W. Shall we, the United States of America, travel this same road? America's yesterday remains somewhat of a mystery.

Mexico was found to have a civilization little inferior to that of the European nations. You remember that one hundred and fifty years later, the Pilgrims and Puritans landed upon the shores of Massachusetts. They were God-fearing peopleg they were staunch and vigorous against the many hardships which they had to endure, they stood firm and unfaltering by their principles and convictions. WVas l10t this a solid foundation which was laid for America's strength and power of today? And although the storms may come, and the sea of uncer- tainty, of politics, and of propaganda may dash its waves against the democracy of America, it shall not fall! . America today has many questions and problems to settle. Will her leaders settle these issues for the best interests of' humanity, or for their own selfish motives? One of the most Important countries in the world today, to Americans, is japan. Let us consider this japanese problem for a few minutes. japan, is the only nation whose- commercial and naval policies Confiict with our own. japan's power is such that she could' challenge our naval supremacy. She is a serious competitor for the trade of China, and she holds the key that can lock the Qpen Door. Underlying the misunderstandings which have grown up between the two nations IS l'aCe prejudice? We have inherited it from our Aryan ancestors. The reason why we get ?l0Dg with the Chinese is because they compliment us, and flatter our sense of racial superior- lfy- The Japanese stand up for their rights, and will I10t humble themselves for us, and be- cause they do this, we dislike them. Another reason for our dislike is our fear of japanese industrial competition. japanese business houses and corporations have tried to ruin several Afllerican. concerns. They are sly and unscrupulous, and business men do not like to deal Wlfh this kind of commercial corporations. lt was Kei Hara, Prime Minister of japan, who said: "You should not forget that my people learned what they know of modern business methods from you Americans. It was your Commodore Perry who, in the face of japanese 0PP0Sltion, opened Japan to American commerce. It was from the American traders who fol- l0Wed him that the japanese received their first lessons in the business ethics of the West." Japan is practically isolated from the countries of the world, because she has striven to gain il foothold and has succeededg but instead of trying to regain the confidence and good-will of the nations, she has undertaken an attitude of stubbornness and defiance. Is it our fault? Have we given japan a square deal? Another great issue which confronts us is the Washington conference, where the great leaders from the different nations of the world are gathered together to devise some plan Whereby every nation may have international peace and disarmament. These leaders, with thfll' executive and master minds, help to decide our tomorrow. These are the men whom we YVlSl1 placed at the head. of our government, and not the petty political leaders whom so many ill-informed citizens wish to follow. One man states that Europe may be divided into three Parts, broadly speaking: the victors, the vanquished, and the neutrals in the late war. All classes are suffering from one cause or another. No people are happy, nations dislike each other, and it will be years before the hates and jealousies of nations can die down. The victors are still dominant, and the vanquished are in subjection. Disarmament? Yes, it has bein Carried out, but only in the case of the conquered nations. How shall America decide this question? Will she see the starving children of Europe? Will she see the desolate, ff'21l'-ridden countries, in which there was once peace and prosperity? Will she heed the call, C0me over into Macedonia and help us"? If America stands true to the principles of her forefathers, she will see the needs, and answer them, and she must!-for today decides our tomorrow, There is a great social problem which faces every American citizen. The struggle be- fween capital and labor is still on, and one tries to gain control over the other. Nevertheless, IS .lt not right that there should be some leaders who are capable of running and' directing fflllrpads, factories, and mines? During the war a private soldier saluted his ofiicer because Sf his rank, and the rank of an oflicer represented the number of men in his command-a oneness" of all the men. Pershing was a magnet which drew two million individuals, offic- e1'S.21nd privates, to him as equals, while Foch was the magnet which gathered all allied nations together into a still greater "onenessl', working for one cause. The war could not have been won by privates alone. Neither can our industries progress without their ofiicers and prlvates, who must work in unison and accord with each other. It is, then, the duty of every American to work hard and vote right so that these important places may be filled by C0mpetent men. l Ijet us now turn our thoughts toward our American homes. One of the things which is ruining more homes in this country than anything else is the divorce, and the cases are grow- 5'P.if5ig2 Efifrir'-3 :QW-'Q-L "i' wffffix .',:.y...a . ..., ,.., ,A ,..,, Page One Hundred Fifty-one IDES ing more and more numerous. Statistics prove that more men and women are seeking di- vorces in the divorce courts of this country than ever before, and for no legitimate reasons. What kind of homes will this country have if this is allowed to continue? The boys and girls of today will be our citizens of tomorrow. They should be brought up to love and respect their parents. At the name of America, they should wax warm with enthusiasm and be ready to defend her at the first call. The higher things of life, which can be obtained only in the home, should be cultivated. They should delight to read good, wholesome books, and should be taught to enjoy hymns and sacred music as well as the more classical compositions. Auerbach has made the statement that "music washes away from the soul. the dust of every- day life." America's future will remain pure and upright, if we have the true homes of today. VVhat can we as college students do toward solving these problems that America is facing? VVe must be studying these problems and looking forward into the near future when we shall have the right and power to answer these questions correctly. lf these questions were decided in the wrong way it would tend toward the decline of American democracy. One hundred years ago, this government was being built up aml taken care of by our grandfathers, while today our fathers and mothers are voting for the right leaders, building up the nation, and preparing the way for us. Today is advancing and what of tomorrow? College students,- we must build the homes of tomorrow. Tomorrow the problems of the world will be resting upon our shoulders, and tomorrow we must build a nation. Freedom for the Oppressed The Peace Conference at Paris was expected to solve all of the questions out of which the Great War arose, and to do it in a satisfactory manner, so that the future tranquillity of Europe might be assured. This expectation, however, has not been realized, because differences and disturbances continue to exist. Do not misunderstand me and think that I mean that the Peace Conference was a total failure, for such was not the case. Think a moment what the conditions might have been if there had been no Peace Conference. You will undoubtedly agree with me that they might have been much worse than they are at present. Among those questions were the problems of thc countries of the Near East. The term HN'ear East" is an indefinite misnomer. Every person who uses the term or hears it used may have his idea of where it begins and where it ends. Geographically its boundaries are undefined. Nevertheless, the term, although indefinite, is useful, because it signifies a multitude of people who live under different conditions, speak a multitude of languages, and have different historical traditions, and might he termed "South Western Asia." For several thousands of years Armenia, because of her location, has been trodden upon and trampled under foot by devastating armies, but with undefiable and undaunting courage she rises again in order to uphold her ideals and faith and to maintain national freedom. just what position does Armenia hold? It is a large plateau, and is about the size of Iowa. On the north it is bounded by the Black Sea and the new Georgian republic, on the east by Persia, and on the south and west by Mesopotamia and Asia Minor. By holding this unfortunate position, for centuries she has been a bulwark against which Aryan tribes have rushed. She has also held a favorite place of assault hy her non-Christian neighbors. There is a beautiful Greek church of St. Mary Magdalen near Jerusalem which was built in a land of alien faith by Alexander III and is in a way symbolic of the Near East, where people of conflicting races and religions mingle but still remain antagonistic. It may be possible for Christians to build churches and live among non-Christian people who believe nothing but "Christians and Mohammedans cannot live together on equal terms under a Mo- hammedan government." just let me repeat that last statement. "Christians and Moham- medans cannot live together on equal terms under a Mohammedan government." You may ask, "Why is this true?" And the answer is that the Mohammedan religion forbids that tlley should. There is reference made to this in the official Islam prayer, which the Turks do not fail to carry out. An extract of the prayer is as follows: "O Allah, destroy the infidels and poly- theists, thine enemies, the enemies of thy religion! O Allah! make their children orphans, and defile their abodes. Cause their feet to slip, and give them and their families, their households and their women, their children and their relations by marriage, their brothers and their friends, their possessions and their race, their wealth and their lands, as booty to the Moslems, O Lord of All Creatures!" All those who do not accept Mohammed are named as infidels, and their fate is determined, so it would seem, by the Turkish prayer. And that is the reason iii .1 av Page One Hundred Fifty-lfwo F'lDE why Armenia has been trampled under foot for centuries, with only intervals of strained and uncertain peace. Her distress has been caused by her undying loyalty to her faith. Would other nations stand up under the strain of years of hardship and fight for the existence of a Christian race and independence? I believe some of them would. Would America, our country, which we all love and honor as only Americans can? I know that she would. And yet America does not have to fear for the extinction of her race now. She must needs look toward the east, If it is right and consistent for one nation to help a sister nation, if it is right to help promote and establish the principles of right and justice, then it is right for America to help Armenia. This is America's chance to prove her doctrine of mercy and justice, the doctrine of Christianity, and she cannot and must not fail. I will admit that undoubtedly Armenia has made some mistakes and that Turkey might have been in the right once or twice, but does that give Turkey the right to commit and permit the atrocities which have been happening? The Turks asked the West to keep its hands off their affairs, and when the West answered that they, the Turks,'should keep their hands off the affairs of others, they were indignant. "Twenty or twenty-five years ago at the time of the first Graeco-Turkish war, the average Turk was so ignorant of international questions that most of them knew very little of what was actually going on. Not so today. Every Turk IS keeping in touch with the smallest changes of the situation. They are alive to all political moves and foreign intrigues. They understand the economic conditions, and they have en- listed themselves into a concerted well-organized body which is trying to fool and trick the world of today. It is then for these reasons that we must be watchful for plans and actions which Turkey may try to put across. , Many people in our land and in other lands are not in sympathy with the Armenian situa- QOH Slmply because they are not acquainted with the facts and do not understand the condi- tions. We know that throughout the Near East, starvation, disease, and death hold sway. We have also heard of the one hundred and seventy thousand Armenian orphans, but I'm afraid that that is as far as some of us think. Why don't we try to realize what will become of those Cllll-dl'Cl'l if they are not helped? They are anxious to learn if we but give them the oppor- tunity. Throngs of men and women with pale, staring faces are eager, if they have any Strength left at all, to work at anything in order to earn a few cents a day. They are anxious E0 Put the soil of their home land in readiness and to till it int order to raise crops. Can you lmagfne what it would be- like for Turkish soldiers to play a game of sport and chance by shooting people as they stand conversing? Can you imagine hundreds and thousands of mothers and children being driven onto the docks, then put in barges, and taken out and drowned in the ocean? Can you imagine in the present advanced civilization of this world, a Christian city being moagre by heartless plunderers, and no nation to rise up in indignation, to interfere and' say It is almost unimaginable, and still these things have been happening within the la'st month of SO- It is not possible to believe that the American people wish this state of affairs to con- tinue without our nation saying one word, but so far no one has been able to persuade her to take a moral stand against such atrocities and to say "Stop!" Great Britain single-handed took a decided stand, and she was the only nation to do so. NOW the British Labor Party is criticizing Lloyd George for nearly leading them into war, but he is the one man who stopped a war from coming. If Great Britain had not taken the step which she did take, Turkey would have crossed over into Europe, taking some of the Balkan States with her, and would have tried to annihilate all of the Christians in Europe, and Europe, in the condition in which she now is, could not have stopped them until the very heart of the continent had been reached. u Europe believes in and still puts her hope and trust in America, but the same questions are being asked. Where is America? VVhat is she thinking of? Is she willing to stand by and S66 whole Christian nations exterminated? Is she going to refuse to be present at the Con- ierence which has been called to settle these problems? The answer must be sent forth, America is here, and she is ready and willing to help." W'e do not wish to be merely on- l0okers at the Conference, but we wish to have some voice in the decisions, and I believe this can be done without entangling America in European political affairs. If the delegates from all allied nations would meet together, the whole problem could be settled and could be Settled permanently, for Turkey would not dare take another step, for she would realize that she would be halted in her mad career. The fire of jealousy and hatred which has been burning in the Near East must be extinguished immediately, or disaster will be the ultimate end. I In a great mass-meeting in New York, Dr. Robert E. Speer stated the object of the meeting ln these words: "VVe are not here to feed the fires of hatred against the Turk, nor to propose fl -"-L "5'- 'G+ -.-za-fp,:: as-, ,rff-'uv -,fs ',:,.-me v -,... -H.,-, dkatiylg tgxja ,gig-Q5 ,1. :iQ,,- 3 fzzifsi 5, N tg ., gagggf,-z ip,-,1Q.y .

But we are here to declare our conviction that religious minorities are entitled to protection, to appeal to our nation to accept its inescapable duty in aiding and establishing a righteous peace in the Near East, and to insist that the Armenian people are entitled to some home of their own, where they can be safe and able to take care of themselves." V Thousands in America are longing for the day when our political leaders can lay aside their narrow and selfish concerns and turn their attention to broad national matters regardless of partisan jealousies. They, as well as the rest of us, must be awakened to the fact that Europe needs rebuilding, and we must be prepared to understand their need. Armenia and the Near East need us today, and although we feel disheartened and dis- couraged at times, the person who looks ahead, can see renewed confidences and hopeg he can see the sure and steady gainsg the weakening of resistant forces, and he can see the strengthening of the energies of Christianity. There is a new day breaking forth in the East, and the struggle will not have been in vain. "Say not the struggle naught availeth, The labour and the wounds are vain, The enemy faints not, nor faileth, And as things have been they remain. For while tired waves, vainly breaking, Seem he-re no painful inch to gain, Far back, through creeks and inlets making, Comes silent, flooding in, the main. And not by eastern windows only, When daylight comes, comes in the light, In front, the sun climbs slow, how slowly, But westward, look, the land is bright." Is the White Race Passing? Out of the present tangle of world affairs, what shall the white race expect? For what must the white world look? For what must this nucleus of Christianity hope? For what ' should it desire? We are upon a turning point of incalcul- able moment. The future promises convulsive changes in world affairs. Action and reaction have seethed and boiled, ebbed and flowed beneath the surface of an apparent world solidarity until now we must look for a turbances of the Oriental World must What is to be the consequence? The white race has pleased to consider itself master of an invulnerable position of supremacy and superiority over the world. VVe 'have looked upon ourselves as a chosen people. Mr. Lothrop Stoddard has even gone so far as to state quite complacently that, if the white world goes to pieces as he fears it is going to, there will be nothing left upon this planet but an "unstable, bastardized population where worth and merit have no inherent right to leader- ship .... " That first is a puff of conceit, and that last is rubbish! A race can maintain a position of ascendancy just so long as that i'ace is able and willing to perpetuate and transmitthat type of civilization and culture which is best for the rest of the world. And when that ceases to be the case, that people must inevitably give place. The white race has reached the eve of the ultimate decline of her supremacy, for is not history the criterion of future events? Has not the dominance of all national or racial power in the past been doomed when that power began to slash and tear itself to pieces with civil wars, and dissipate its resources with corruption and internal treachery? Consider Greece, con- sider Rome. result. These dis- of necessity erupt. Shall it not be equally so of race dominance as it was of national control?

Not only have self-destructive disturbances weakened the white race and thus increased the possibilities of her declining dominance, but there has been a vital change in the Oriental attitude toward the white man. The colored world has never welcomed the white man's control. lt has regarded him as a necessary evil, and respected or feared his irresistible power, but now, jarred out uf its long stupor by the impetus of western ideas, these peoples have awakened to give the white man's superiority a more critical scrutiny. They have as a whole concluded that our greatness is the consequence of nothing which they themselves cannot attain. With this end in view they have, therefore, been in diligent attendance at the white man's school. But, tragically enough, the masses of them have missed the main-spring of our true greatness. They have missed the very actuating dynamic by which we first shook them from their long torpidity. They have missed the Christ. Despite our tireless efforts to uplift as well as enlighten them, I say the masses have missed the Christ. And Mr. Stoddard says: "The colored world, long restive under white political domination, is being welded by the most fundamental of instincts, the instinct of self-preservation, into a common solidarity of feeling against the dominant white man, and in the fire of a common purpose finter-raciall difficulties tend, for the time at least, to be burned away." When the great war broke, the Orient cast off its fear of white power and its respect for white civiliza- tion like a vesture 0lltW01'Il- A Turkish newspaper says: "With clenched but powerless fists, silent and depressed, we have murmured, as the Ere burned within, 'Oh, that the white na- tions might fall out with one another! Oh, that they might eat each other upl' And lo! today they are eating each other up just as the Turk wished they would." A British educated Afghan Says of the whites: 'fYou are heaping up material for a Jehad, a Pan-Islam, a Pan-Asia Holy Vllar, a gigantic day of reckoning, an invasion of a new Attila and Tamerlane-who will use l'1l:lCS and bullets instead of lances and spears ..... " "What does the European VVar mean to the Orientals?" queries a japanese writer. "It means the downfall of so-called VVestern civilization .... We are sorry that we some- how overestimated its happy possibilities, and were deceived andcheated by its superficial glory ..... There will be only one thing to come, and that is fight." Such is the comment of the Orient upon the present situation of the white race. They have seen our might and they covet it. And they will use any means whereby to attain it, for, I Say, the masses have missed the Christ. To quote from Mr. Stoddard's late work: "By a curious irony of fate the white man has long been busy removing the checks to colored multiplication .... WVherever the white man goes he attempts to establish his order of civilization. He puts down tribal war, he Wages truceless combat against epidemic disease, . . . he minimizes the- blight of famine. - . . In consequence there is a threatening increase of populationf, not only in those' areas under direct white control, but also in these portions such as China and Japan which have taken up with the white man's "life conserving methods." Yet I say the masses have missed the Christ-the Christ whose gospel has made their prosperity possible,-the Christ whose teachings we have desired to propagate in their lands. There can be only one result: The homelands of these peoples are already crowded to the limit,-an outward tide.of colored races is inevitable. But I am not hopeless. When the Orient is done with its clamor for "power and pelf," when, whether by gentle reaction or by explosive violence these pending readjustments are consummated, when out of the crucible of glliscliaos a new civilization is poured, there will be a new purity, the Orient will find the mst. As to Mr. Stoddard's gloomy view, let him read the history of the world. Did not the Hebrew race consider itself the Hower of the world. Did it not predict the ruin and utter end of all worth-while civilization with the destruction of jerusalem? And yet has not the best of Hebrew culture and tradition come down to us in the present day? Did not the civilization which destroyed Jewish nationality crush out of the pith of her instituted formalities all that was worthy and save that vintage as a rare legacy to be transmitted to posterity? And is not the world that much better off because this rare essence was wrested from the cumbering, anti- quated Hebrew civilization? Hard fate indeed for Jewry, but was it not best for the world? And again, when the irresistible flood of those barbaric hosts fresh from their untrammeled heathenism, pouring over the rampart of the Alps, overwhelmed that dry and wind-blown husk, the shell of the once Glorious Rome, did not her orators bemoan the death of all things with the obsequies of her once brilliant realm? But there were things which could not be enhumed with Rome's dead bones. There was her science, and her law, there was the or- ganizing genius, and there in the chaff of he1' corruption was the germinating Christianity. "l'- Y.

These nations and kingdoms which have passed have not, then, died in vain, and we have no right to shed great tears if we forsee our racial doom, for, come what may, assure yourselves of this: There is an overruling providence, there is yet over this world that supervising spirit, su- preme over all, in whose hand rests the lever of control. And as certainly as from: the past conflicts of races and peoples, as certainly as from the death wail of nations, as certainly as from the pain and anguish of the shattered hope of clan and class, as certainly as out of all this, step by step, has come a better world, so in the future, out of those movements and changes which may convulse our civilization, will come improvement to the world in its totality. If the white world is to be crushed, then out of the ashes of its ruin will rise a whiter world, for must not that power which is able to conquer the white' world be, in the high economy of God who shall guide it, purer, nobler, and more worthy to-dominate than ls our own? But is there no remedy? Can we not avert this catastrophy? It seems there can be but one reply: If this is a mere spasm, a fever, a delerium of Oriental desire, then time will heal it and no cause for our alarm: but if, as it appears, the white race has begun to degenerate, and if it is the tendency of the times that the world is to be changed, that a shift is to occur in the balance of racial predominance, then it is but for us to acquiesce. VVe can but meet the concussion of whatever mutations may come with the best that there is in our civilization. Yet if we will we can forstall and assuage the possible violence of these changes. And there is but one course to safety: If the white race will so impress and permeate and implant the Orient with those institutions and customs which we deem necessary to civilization, if we give the Orient our ideals and the essence of our religion, then if the white world comes to issue with color, if we fail and go down as other powers before us have failed and gone down, yet we will be in a world where God is God and we may dwell in peace.

To start with there was a rather large debt, under the burden of which the Review has been forced to struggle for several years. Then too, there has been some difficulty in the getting of theipaper out regularly, which has made the problem of obtaining subscribers and advertising more diflicult to solve. Mr. Raymond Sholtz, '23, took charge of the Review, as editor-in-chief for 1922. Although inexperienced in the work, Mr. Sholtz took hold of the work with all his might, doing his best to get the paper back on its feet financially, and at the same time to keep it up to its old literary standards. He was hampered a great deal at the start by being unable to find enough students sufficiently interested in the paper to relieve him of part of the work of putting out the publication. As a result of this, and of the financial situation, it became necessary to omit an occasional issue of the Review. In the fall of 1922, the situation of the paper became such that a mass meeting of the students was held at which the matter of student support and co- operation was put directly before them. This meeting made a profound impres- sion, and since that time the Review has been steadily gaining. At the beginning of the second semester, February, 1923, Mr. R. W. Crosley became editor-in-chief. He had had considerable experience in this sort of work, having edited a high school annual, and having been on the Review staff. Five issues were put out under his leadership, but at the end of that time it became necessary for him to leave school on account of his health. Mr. Myrl N. Davis, '24, was selected to fill the vacancy. Mr. Davis had previously served on the staff of Mr. Sholtz, and that of lVIr. Crosley. He will continue in oflice until February, 1924. Under his management there seems every probability that the paper will have a very successful year. Despite the debt hanging over the paper, prospects for its continuance are bright. If care is used in the financial management, there is no reason for believing that the debt can not be materially lowered if not completely removed within a reasonable period of time.

However, as the students of Milton College had succeded in publishing an annual in 1921, and as they keenly appreciated the need of another such book, the desire for another annual took defi- nite form in the fall of 1921, and a project for the accomplishment of the task was commencedi Accordingly, H. P. Kakuske of Janesville was elected editor, and an investigation of the feasibility of publishing an annual was instituted. This 'investigation re- vealed the fact that conditions were not particularly favorable for such an under- taking. Therefore, after some consideration of the matter, the Student Body came to the conclusion that the most advisable course would be to postpone the publication until the following year, since this plan would give added opportunity to collect material and amass resources. Allison E. Skaggs of Plainfield, New Jersey, was chosen as editor, and under his direction the foundation of the second Fides was established. At this point the Fides suffered a sudden reverse. Mr. Skaggs was unable to re- turn to Milton for the school year of 1922-'23. With the chief executive gone, all progress was retarded. It became imperative that a new editor should be elected immediately. After several ballots and resignations the present editor was selected, and the staff was again in a position to function. The difiiculties of the Fides were not at an end, however. Careful planning and management were necessary if the publication was to be a financial success. The Fides has been especially fortunate in placing its contracts to good advantage both in regard to quality of work and from a financial angle. The Brandenburg Printing Company of Janesville handled the printing, and the Mandel Engraving Company of Milwaukee made the cuts and half-tones for the illustrations. The difficulties of the staff were materially lessened by the substantial support given the Fides by advertisers in Janesville, Milton, Milton Junction, Edgerton, and Whitewater. lt must be recognized that from a financial point of view the publication of the Fides would have been impossible without the assistance of the business men of the surrounding communities, both through the medium of advertising and the square and favorable treatment received from all with whom the Fides has had business dealings. Page One Hundred Sixly-tfwo F DES The Battle Creek Club Zow ga zow ga zow ga zan Cereal City of Michigan. The Battle Creek Club was organized in March, 1922, immediately following the Booster Banquet. Charles Kneeland was elected President. Since "Chuck" was the only member who could claim the Cereal City as his birthplace, it was thought quite fitting and proper that he should bc thus honored. Charles Sutton was elected Vice President, and Beulah Coon Secretary-Treasurer. The other charter members were Allison Skaggs, Henry Black, Gerald Kennedy, Glee Ellis, Oma Pierce, Pauline Davis, Dorothy Maxson, Velma Maxson, and Elma Mills. ' According to the constitution the oHicers are to be elected at each annual Booster Banquet. Any student Whose parental home is in Battle Creek, or who has spent two consecutive summers there, is eligible for membership. Students from other places in Michigan may be voted in by the Club. The purpose of the Club is to boost Milton College in the way of little improvements about the campus and in getting young people of Battle Creek interested in Milton. Last fall, early in the school year, the Battle Creek Club began to be very much in evidence by reason of a mysterious project which its members were backing. The campus trees and walls were liberally decorated with cards announcing a "Joy Ride" in which all students were invited to participate. Each card bore the letters "K, K." which added to the mystery. The "Joy Ride" proved to be a little souvenir booklet called "Kollege Krumblesf' The little book was full of campus jokes and "clever stuH" of the C. S. Kneeland variety. The money which was received for the sale of the "Joy Rides" was used to procure racks for the Chapel hymn books. Nearly all the work of 'editing the booklet was done by "Chuck" Kneeland, and to him is due the success of the enterprise. This year Clara Lippincott, Frances Babcock, and Myrtle Branch were added to the list of members. The officers elected for the coming year are: President, Charles Sutton, Vice President, Gerald Kennedy, Secretary-Treasurer, Velma Maxson. The social side of the Club has not been stressed this year, but "there's a reason." All of the Club have been busy in other activities more vital in the student life. However, even though some of the parties have been postponed indefinitely, the Club still has plenty of "Zep", and it is all for Milton College. , im :ar e1E0'f1!s QPQEQ faq 1: ,QE Page One Hundred Sixty-four ff'-Y '7lwn DES First Alumni Mid-Year Banquet A new departure in the history of the Alumni occurred on the evening of Feb- ruary ll, 1922, when the loyal sons and daughters of Milton gathered after the homecoming game played with Lawrence College, to discuss the welfare of their Alma Mater. After a delicious luncheon, served in the parlors of the S. D. B. Church, Dr. A. L. Platts of Chicago, President of the Association, took up his duties as toast- master. In his characteristic manner Dr. Platts interspersed humor and seriousness in explaining the purpose of the meeting and in introducing the various speakers. "Prof. John" Daland presented the athl-etic situation of the school, and Coach Crandall gave an interesting resume of the work of the physical department at the present time. Then followed inspirational addresses by Attorney Alva E. Garey of Janesville, Principal Ray W. Rood of Lake Geneva, and Attorney Fred Bentley of Chicago. Acting President Whitford then spoke briefly of the progress of the College at the present time, and of his plans for a bigger, better Commencement for the com- ing June. The festivities closed with the singing of College songs under the leadership of Professor L. H. Stringer. SECOND ALUMNI MID-YEAR BANQUET The first mid-year banquet was a good start and a very pleasant occasion, but it was the second meeting on February 10, 1923, at which things were really done. The gathering was held once more in the S. D. B. Church parlors, and a bountiful three-course banquet was served. Dr. George W. Post, Jr., of Chicago, President of the Association, presided with his usual firmness and genial tact. Dr. A. L. Platts, the first speaker, put everyone in good humor with his timely jokes, and Professor L. H. Stringer followed with an outline of a definite expansion policy for the College. The program is to extend over a period of five or ten years and includes the raising of S250,000, the additional endowment necessary to make Milton a Standard College, and the erection of one and possibly two new buildings on the campus. Professor J. N. Daland and Acting President Whitford then spoke of the large field of influence that Milton College could occupy with the proposed improvements and emphasized especially the need of a new dormitory for women. The necessity for making Milton College a standard college so that she may enter the North Central Association of Colleges was emphasized by Dr. A. L. Burdick, President of the Board of Trustees. He proposed a nation-wide campaign to make such a step possible by the year 1926. Senator Garey of the Wisconsin Legislature, Dr. Larkin of Chicago, Dr. G. W. Post, Sr., the Reverend E. D. Van Horn, Dr. Edwin Shaw, Allen B. West, and others then contributed concrete suggestions and discussions in regard to Milton's growth. Again and again the speakers recurred to the idea that a fitting memorial to President Daland would be the erection on the campus of a library to bear his name. Page One Hundred Sixty-jffve FIDE5 Gradually the plans of the meeting took shape, and a committee consisting of Acting President A. E. Whitford, Dr. A. L. Burdick, Dr. G. W. Post, Jr., and Mrs. Charles M. lVIorse was appointed to put the plans and purposes of the Alumni into action. This committee will work in co-operation with the Trustees, Faculty, Alumni, and friends for the growth and extension of our beloved College. Was Milton's future ever brighter? At a meeting of the 'Trustees on February 21, the spirit and plans of the Alumni as expressed at the mid-year banquet were heartily approved, and a committee con- sisting of the same- personnel as appointed by the Alumni was named to devise plans for an organized effort to procure the funds needed for the growth of the school. The committee have plans under way for a five-year program to accomplish the above purposes. When the plans of the committee reach your ears, fall in line and boost for Milton! A HONORS TO AN ALUMNUS OF THE WEST The following clipping is taken from the Journal of Electricity and Western Industry, San Francisco: "Hylon T. Plumb, Vice President of District Nine of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and electrical engineer attached to the Salt Lake office of the General Electric Company, was the guest of honor at a recent meeting of the Denver section of the institute. In addition to addressing the members on the aims and activities of the organization, Mr. Plumb gave an illustrated talk on 'Radio Communication'." ' During the year 1922 lVIr. Plumb gave forty-seven public addresses on scientific and engineering subjects. For the past two years he has been President of the Engi- neering Council of Utah in addition to the office mentioned above. He writes the Alumni Editor: "The most interesting Alumni news which has come to my attention lately is the rumor that Professor A. E. Whitford, '96, has been elected President of the College. Hurrayl Rev. Channing A. Richardson, Class of '96, was in Salt Lake City recently enroute to a convention in the east. He occupies a very important position in the Methodist Church in California, being, I believe, Superintendent of the Sacramento District, and highly regarded there. Last summer I had an opportunity of visiting Dr, Wm. Burdick Wells, also Class of '96, who is the Health Commissioner for the City of Riverside, California. He is on the. jump day and night and is doing an immense amount of good for his fellow men." .waive il-lifes 4-"4 :1'f!:l-.1 IE :gf gif :zliifi-1 Page One Hundred Sixty-.tix IDES PRESIDENT L. D. HARVEY In the death of Lorenzo Don Harvey, President of Stout Institute, on June 1, 1922, Milton College lost of one of her most widely known and influential alumni. Mr. Harvey received the degree of B. A. from Mil- ton College in 1872 and his M. A. in 1876. ln 1885 his Alma Mater honored him with the degree of Ph. D. From the time of his graduation in 1872 up to the day of his death, Mr. Harvey exerted a wide influence in the educational field of Wisconsin and neighboring states. The following positions were ably filled by him: Superintendent Schools, Sheboygan, President Milwaukee Normal School, State Superintendent of Public Instruc- tion, and Superintendent Menomonie School System. ln the years 1898-99, he was honored with the Presidency of the National Education Association. ' When Stout Institute was incorporated in 1908, he was made President and the great growth of that insti- tution has been largely due- to his remarkable powers of organization and administrative ability. His great talent as a public speaker and lecturer brought him into prominence all over the United States, his lectures being largely on the subject of industrial education. But to Stout Institute Mr. Harvey gave most freely of his great generous spirit and it is hard to estimate his influence on the lives of the students of the institution he so ably served. VV. W. CLARKE Milton College lost a warm friendiand loyal contributor on December 18, 1922, when Wallace W. Clarke was called home, ' For twenty years Mr. Clarke had owned and operated the book and stationery store, and all college texts passed through his hands. In such capacity the interests of the college and students were ably served and we, the students of the college, miss his kindly face as we call for "blue books" over the counter. For twenty-Eve years previous to his purchase of the stationery stock, Mr. Clarke clerked in the store of Robert Williams. For twelve years he was postmaster of the village. In these various capacities he made wide acquaint- ances, and few persons have been better known to both students and towns-people. Public interests as well as private were ably served by Mr. Clarke. He has left the village a complete po- litical history of the community for the past fifty years. Baseball was one of his hobbies and, altho he did not play, for many years he was oflicial scorer for the Milton teams. He was the first to organize a town band, and as correspondent for The Janes- ville Gazette, he reported the commencement exercises of the college for fifty years. if ' in-rabies? vim. ,- ---- 1 -'mmuzif :. :ti:4..1'4,-1. l?.:.,-ja.-as 2:i.4,g.-1.1 ,1,-H' any .M 5,,., Page One Hundred Sixty-eight ...vi XX. FIU In his passing one of the best friends of Milton and of the college has been removed and "VVallie" Clarke, as he was familiarly called by the older students, will he missed by all. E. S. BAILEY It rarely happens that an institution has such a loyal friend and alumnus as Milton College has in Dr. E. Stillman Bailey, IMI. D., of Chicago. In his younger days he was a resident of Milton in the home of his father, the Reverend James Bailey. He early attained eminence in his chosen profession as physician and sur- geon in the city of Chicago, and later became for a number of years Dean of Hahnemann Medical College. In recent years he has gained national reputation as an authority on the use of radium in the treatment of dis- eases. His intellectual enthusiasm carried him from the study of radio activity to that which is the basis of all electrical phenomena, the electron. Many former stu- dents of Milton College remember the series of lectures which he gave in the chapel on the electron and the electron theory. Dr. Bailey's Alma Mater, in addition to awarding him the Bachelor of Arts degree upon the completion of his course in 1873, has conferred upon him the honorary degrees of Master of Arts 118781 and Doctor of Philosophy 118861. As president of the Alumni Association from 1915 to 1917, Dr. Bailey gave lavishly of his energy to advance the interests of the College. At the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the institution, held in 1917, he caused tO be placed on the front of Whitford Nlemorial Hall the bronze tablet which Commemorates the devotion of the founders of Milton College. Preeminent in his profession, unselfish in his service to mankind, generous to a fault, Dr. Bailey will always he remembered as a friend of every Milton College student. WILLIS P. CLARKE When, after wandering up and down on the face of the earth, the Milton Alum- nus returns to his Alma lVIater, he finds many things have changed. One thing, however, remains the same and as he drops into the store ' next to the post office he knows that a kindly greeting and hearty handclasp is awaiting him from ,Willis P. Clarke. He is truly the friend of the studentsg their interests are his, and the returned student knows that his suc- cess or failure is of vital importance to lklr. Clarke. lVIr. Clarke has lived in Milton for sixty-seven years, having graduated from lVIilton Academy in 1861. As a young man he attained considerable fame as an archaeologist, having made a survey of the Indian lVIounds of Lake Koshkonong about 1880. Some years later he directed the party which surveyed the Hoard group of lVIounds. lWr. Clarke modestly states that he did no work on this occasion except to furnish and 1, 'y-53:-K. -gi syn., i51i4,f55..f,3.3 ,,,w,.,u,-3 3.1:--1.1.3 9.114-.-,-5, 7 .4 ,G ,M-,M I Page One Hundred Sixty-nine DES prepare the canvas-back duck which the party enjoyed on more than one occasion. The collection of Indian relics made by Mr. Clarke is one of the best, including specimens from all parts of the United States and many foreign countries. Through the generosity of Mr. Clarke this collection has become the property of Milton College and can be seen in the Museum in the Science Hall. Mr. Clarke served in the army for four years in the early sixties and fortunate is the man who can persuade him to relate anecdotes of this interesting period. But Mr. Clarke's greatest service is as a friend of Milton College students. Many have found employment in his store and such men as Vernon Hurley, Jack McKean, Eston Stout, and Nels Sorenson can pay tribute to his worth as a friend and counsellor. Such has been ,the relationship between lVIilton College and this loyal friend for many years, and we hope to find his kindly greeting awaiting us on our return for many years to come. REV. L. F. I-IURLEY, '15 In reply to a request for news of the Class of 1915, the Alumni Editor received the following characteristic letter from Rev. L. F. Hurley of Adams Center, N. Y. It is a matter for regret on my part that I know so little about thc Class of '15, Bill Burdick is teaching in M. C., and you know more about him than I do. Harry Pierce is attending Medical School in Chicago, is married, and has two nice children. Aside from these two I am unaware of even the addresses of the members. We had a dandy letter going for a time, but unfortunately it stopped somewhere- location unknown. I And there is nothing worth ink about me. Of course, folks know I am married, have a happy home-much better than I deserve-with one girl who will be six on March 7th. We work for one of the best churches on earth. It is not big, but has fine folks in it. Then I preach for a Baptist church at Honeyvilleg teach, with others, in our course of Week'Day Religious Education in the High School, am President of the District S. S. Association, and am generally good for nothing the rest of the time. To be exact I am somewhat like the fellow who was asked what he did all day when he was sitting on a dry goods box. He' replied, "Sometimes I sits and thinks, and then again I just sits." That is my principal occupation when I have nothing else to do. Really, I hope you can find some member of the Class of '15 who can tell you something worth while, Very sincerely yours, DAD HURLEY IVY GREEN HARDIE, '11 Extracts from a letter from Mrs. Dick Hardie, ,11, Kalispell, Montana: Alumni news?

VVe have daffodils, hyacinths, asparagus, pears, n'everything planted in our garden now, and we're going to have a new porch this spring. Dick says that isn't news, that I should tell about our last mountain trip, but to me the porch is infinitely more exciting. I'll have rambler roses trained on it, and keep the tea wagon out there and any of the Alumni of lVIilton who stray this side of the Rockies are very cordially invited to visit us here.

The yet undefeated faculty team won its first game at the village park the second Wednesday of last week by defeating the varsity representatives of the Brown and Blue. The faculty line-up was as follows: Q. B ...... .- ..... ........ ' 'Rockey" Shaw L. E. ....... ...... ' 'Shanksn Stringer L. T. ..... ..... ' 'Jann Lanphere L. G. ..... ..... ' 'Stuffyu Daland C. .... "Bom" Burdick L. H. ....... "Battling" Inglis F. B. ..... ......... ' 'Hefty" Whitford R. H. .... ...... ' 'Chummyn Crandall R. G. ...... ....... ' 'Romeon Oakley R. T. ................ ........ .......... ' ' Slicker" Buell R. E. ........................................ "Tuffy" Thomas Substitutions-"Doc" Burdick. Referee-Rogers. "Rockey" Shaw, the professors' stealthy quarterback, received the kick-off on the thirteen yard line behind the goal, and by means of retention and neurological pro- cesses he sturdily pranced it to safe territory, thirty-four inches over the goal line. Up to this point, this was the tightest part of the game, yet. The heavy faculty line, with the support of the dashing pedagogue backs,advanced the ball half way up the field. At this advantageous position the time was called so that the dauntless educators might partake of their steaming refreshments. "Battling" Inglis, left half, feeling refreshed by his stimulation, then skirted the end for a substantial gain of seventy-five inches. At this critical moment the ball was lost to the young death defiers when Whitford, the shifty fullback, laid the ball down to fix his roller skate while lVleyer sneaked up from behind and fell on the pigskin. This technicality started a dispute On the sidelines between "Barber" Johnson and Postmaster Holmes. Albert Whit- ford, however, settled the argument by propounding the theory of prehistoric asso- Ciatory motives. This ended the first quarter. The second quarter started off with a bang. "Shanks" Stringer, receiving a slight blow on the head, stopped a few moments to interest his audience with a speech on the ethereal, Elysian realms and stars. After a loud protest the game went on. "Romeo" Qakley, called back for a cross-buck, proceeded to determine the density of the oppos- ing team's line on his vest pocket slide rule. This little operation took him about twenty minutes, and by that time the interference had substantially subsided. How- ever, the intellectual boys were held for downs and were forced to punt. "Tuffy'l Thomas got his dates mixed, and received the 'kick instead of the ball, thereby being thrown for a loss of four yards. Then Crandall, the dashing half-back, broke away for a three hundred and sixty-five yard run all around the park and business dis- trict of Milton. However, upon seeing three naughty boys playing marbles for keeps In the middle of the street, he immediately stopped dead in his tracks and joined them. At this juncture "Jan", the trusty tackle, was called back, and sweeping aside his opponents, he plowed down the field within a striking distance of the goal.

The ofIicial, becoming indignant at such outrageous language, removed the recalcitrant warrior from the fray, and penalized the team twelve steps. "Doc" Burdick replaced 'him with many diagnoses on the game. Stringer struck a new note when he called time out for his wrist to be massaged where it had been slapped. "Hefty" then went off on a tangent, and orated to the team, telling them to get down to serious business. Hill, varsity captain, then broke through the line and it was "Bozo" Burdick, the fleet footed analyzer, who, yelling "Up an atom," overtook him in his flight and marked him down. Later, Burdick pro- tested when his wife cheered for "Slicker" Buell. The break came in the seventh quarter, when Inglis, pivot man, delayed passing the ball until the opposing team had gone by. He then tossed the pig-skin to "Tuffy" Thomas, who promptly waltzed down the field on his roller skates for a touch down. "Rocky" Shaw, with his eye on one of the Frosh Flappers, failed to kick goal because of the distracting stimuli to which his nervous system was subjected. The sturdy professors had to finish the game with a depleted team when "Battling" Inglis had to go home and peel potatoes for supper. Oakley received the full impact of both teams on his nose, but with undaunted courage stayed in the game to show one of the fair-haired co-eds his heroic nature. The ball then see-sawed back and forth until the whistle rang out and pronounced success for the pedagogue prodigies. The final score was 6-0.

I A' - DES THE HALL T ATTLER Published Occasionally by the Ladies of Goodrich Hall vol. Unknown T ilviiLTON, WISCONSIN Density i Elevator to be Installed in Hall Goodrich Hall Board of Trustees Votes Unanimously for Plan For some time there has been much agitation abroad for the installation of an ele- vator in the Hall. However, not until last Tuesday night had any plan been presented whereby such an improvement could be added. It's need is very apparent and in the past the ladies have become rather indignant because the Good- rich Hall Board of Trustees seemed to be so negligent. The plan submitted by the committee states that the ele- vator will run from the base- ment to the Roof Garden. The size of the cage will be small- er than a freight elevator, but larger than a dumb waiter. The source of power needed for operation has been coped with very successfully . One gram of radium will be pur- chased and the power emitted by this element is said to be sufficient to last for hundreds of years to come. The operator of the eleva- tor will be given a college Scholarship and she must be on duty at all times except during the summer and Thanksgiving Vacation. MEN 'ro BE 'mxen The trustees have advanced il novel scheme for raising the necessary monev to purchase the radium. These finances Will be raised by charging all gentlemen callers a definite sum. Time and a half will be charged those staying over- time. For this purpose a time clock will be purchased and each caller will have a time card. This has the hearty ap- proval of the faculty, for they desire also to keep a careful check of the male faction of the College. EXCELLENT PLAN To the casual observer this plan seems to be the most prac- tical, feasible, business-like plan ever oliered, and there is no question in the minds of the Board of Trustees about the idea being based upon sound, workable, and orthodox principles. SUPPER DELAYED I.ast Tuesday evening the daily supper enjoyed by many of the girls was unfortunately delayed because an unexpect- ed scrap took place in the commissary department. It seems that the coffee soaked a biscuit. Some say that the coffee had grounds for doing so and that fact is not disput- ed. Despite the incident a late supper was enjoyed by all. X. The reason women do so many fool things is because there are so many fool things hanging around waiting to be done. , During the week say good night at the Hall with Three- minute Brew.-Adv. ETIQUETTE Due to the fact that some of the ladies feel their lack of manners and good training during certain occasions, Miss Zinn has agreed to teach a class for those who wish to re-polish themselves in this art. The course will consist entirely of lectures from her own experience and ought to prove interesting. The class will meet one half hour every three weeks and every girl should avail herself of this opportunity to perfect herself in the finest of arts. OUR ROOM The newly purchased fur- niture for the Reception Room certainly does improve it and has been admired by many visitors. To date, three straight-backed chairs have been added, besides a foot- stool and an original oil paint- ing of Isaak Walton threading a needle. No doubt more fur- niture to match will soon be secured. The weekly collection of torn hair nets to be sent to Ethopian orphans has been changed from Friday to Moxi- day. This is due to the fact that more are broken on the week-end. The jew Club has evidently settled down to serious busi- ness, for Prof. Shaw reports that they are all doing pass- ing work in his class in jewish History. We thought they had an innate desire to learn more about their forefathers.

It was a beautiful moonlight night in October. Light breezes softly ruffled the leaves of the dark campus elms, which stood out in sharp relief against a back- ground of reddish-gray sky. Stars twinkled here and there, adding to the picturesque- ness of the perfect autumn night. Truly, romance was in the air! As they sat on the window ledge and looked down from Whitford Memorial Hall upon the glimmering lights of the village, he snuggled closer to her side and cautiously slipped his right arm about her slender waist. Then, taking her dainty hand in his, he murmured softly: "Dearest, I-l have a m-momentous question to ask you-one that has been troub- ling me for some time." "What is it?" she inquired, smiling. expectantly up into his anxious face and lovingly pressing the firm hand that held her own.

If so where, why, when? Does he fly or navigate? fTake special note of the preserved specimens.J VVhat are his native haunts? Clf he is hump-backed he is from Nebraskaj Is he warty or not? ls he smooth or naughty? What is the difference between the frog and a tree? Could you tell the difference if you saw them coming down the road arm in arm? Frogs resemble toads. CTO tell the difference pick the beast up in your hands, if you get warts it's a toad.D Locomotion. Grasp your frog by the ankles. flle careful that he doesn't get into your throat.D Now how does he move? What are his methods? fNapoleon was a frog, he moved by cavalryg is this true of modern frogs?J The front appendages which correspond to wings in the flying squirrel are its front legs and feet. Grab your frog by the left hind ankle and identify the following parts! Its upper arm, its humerus, its circumfero-ulna, its wrists, its fingers. Does it have finger and toe nails? If so, why not? What means of manicuring does it have? The hind limbs or legs or appendages have the following parts: the thigh, shin, ankles, feet, and toes. How many of the latter? Notice the knobs on the bottom of the feet and toes. These are due to contact with toads. Compare them with the Adsm's apple in man as to beauty, size, shape and agility. NVould you like to move like a frog? CRead "Butterflies and Other Marine Animals", Pages IZ-l29.D Vision Look at the eyes. Which do they resemble most, hen's eggs or marbles? Knock one off with a brick. Be careful not to crack the sclertic coat. Describe it as to shape, size and composition. The yellow colored part is the iris. The hole near it is the pupil. It lets in the light. lf the puple were absent or failed to grow, the frog could not see. The spot where the light lights after it has trickled through the pupil is the retina. Compare the eyes with a motion picture machine. Notice the muscles. Clie sure that you have a freshly killed specimen, because preserved frogs are muscle boundj. If one of these muscles failes to work the frog gets cross-eyed or lock-jawed. Hearing. By means of your telescope locate the tin panicky membrain, just back of the eye. It is the ear. Itcatches the ether waves. fYour frog may not have these Waves in open sight as they soon disappearj Smell of the ear and see if you can detect the ether. Follow the auditory nerve down to its end in the brain. Did you see anything? If not, it wasn't there. Frogs often die of liver trouble brot on by accumulation of trash and other debris which collects in their ears. These mat together with the ether waves and form a sticky substance which causes the frog to grit his teeth in pain. CThis is the noise one hears on a summer evening when pick- wicking at the lakesj. fFor further research read 'fMother Vinegar and Mother Famous Shebas."J Vocal Organs. WVatch a live frog croak. NVhy does he do it? lf not, why so? The voice box is located in the throat. It is a queer machine.

NICE BOSSY ' At the first streak of dawn the morning after Hallowe'en, a nice, sleek Jersey cow was found tied to the front steps of Goodrich Hall, contentedly chewing her breakfast of cornstalks. It seems that the previous week the girls had complained to the Cedarlawn Dairy because not enough milk and cream had been delivered, but they 'didn't expect the dairy to furnish an entire cow.

Since we are optimistic, we would suggest that they secure a pinch of snuff and then sneeze. For an hour the Biology instructor had dwelt with painful repetition on the parts played by the carbohydrates, proteins and fats in the building up and maintaining the human body. At the end of the period the usual questions were asked, among them: "Can you tell me the three foods required to keep the body in health ?" There was silence until a timid Freshman girl voluntarily replied: Yes, mam. Yer breakfast, yer dinner, and yer supper." MATH. VS.

Pork chops are always good, but when roasted over a camp-fire, beside a lake at sunset, they are far more delicious. Then when buns, pickles, salad, lemonade, and apples are added, they make a meal worthy the appetite of youthful hikers. Besides earning the HM. H .C." award and the two points toward an "M", the girls received a great deal of pleasure :nd real value from these hikes. The charter members hope that feminine students of the future years may keep up interest in this worth-while organization. 1922-23 The Hikers' Club proceeded with its program when the year 1922-23 opened. The Club is under the supervision of the Misses Zea Zinn and Ruth Stillman this year, with a President-elect, Miss Frances Buss. lt is the general aim of the organi- zation to hike a hundred miles in the course of the year, which adds to the number of points towards an HM." The enrollment in the Club this year is about fifteen. In the fall hikes are made in the afternoon, but when the sun begins to rise earlier, the trees to leave, and spring fever gets into the blood, these enthusiasts rise early in the morning to take their constitutionals. It would seem that many more girls would want to belong to this group of mture enthusiasts. Perhaps they cannot stand to go without the early hours of sleep. However, the girls say that everyone is well repaid for the extra exertion and better fitted for the tasks of every day life. THE CHORAL UNION fClll1fill1lt'dfI'0Il1 Page 351 fessor Stringer is the director of both choruses. The two organizations practice sepa- rately and do not sing together until they give their first concert, which in the past two seasons was given in Milton on the night just previous to the performance in Janesville. The same professional soloists take part in both concerts, and the Milton College Symphony Orchestra plays on both occasions. The singing of the "Messiah" at Christmas time has come to he one of the greatest delights of the Christmas season to those students and villagers who are members of the chorus. However, since our community is too small to possess many people whose enjoyment of the great masterpiece incrases with -each hearing, it has been decided to present a different oratorio next year. Mendelssohn's Elijah is the probable choice. Since the Choral Union is open to outsiders as well as to students, the organiza- tion really belongs to the community. Besides the valuable training which it gives to its members, it performs a distinct socializing function, and its service in creating and maintaining a high standard of musical appreciation in Milton is inestimable.

As usual the program was a decided success. At Janesville on Thursday the Club made three appearances, two of them. brief but w-ell received. Several numbers were sung before-the Kiwanis Club at their noon luncheon at the Grand Hotel. Following this the usual school program was given to the high school students. That night the Club continued its good work when the largest and most appreciative audience of the season heard the concert at the Congregational Church. The big event, the home concert, came lVIonday, April 3rd, The regular pro- gram was given, and in addition another brief sketch was presented. This was a pantomime, "The Park Bench", where Carroll Hill as a girl, Clyde Arrington, a dude, Lorraine Summers, an Italian laborer, and George Hutchins, a tramp, each in turn sought rest on the park bench, and each in turn withdrew in disgust at the ap- proach of the next, until the tramp remained alone in his itchy rest. This well-acted sketch brought forth much merriment and applause, as did the regular stunt, "The Coquette". Three days later, Thursday, April 6th, the Club motored to Fort Atkinson, where they were an added attraction to the city's community chorus concert and music contest. The last regular concert ,of the season came Monday evening, April 10th, at Kelly's Hall, llflilton Junction. Again Mr. Stringer was ill and unable to be present, and Professor A. E. Whitford once more directed the Club. Here the Club was doubly fortunate even in its misfortune of Mr. Stringer's absence, for "Shorty" Ferrill, of former Glee Club fame, was visiting college during a recess from his teaching at Marshfield. He kindly agreed to fill lllr. Stringer's solo numbers, and he did this exceptionally well, responding to several encores. Two more appearances followed later when a few numbers were sung as part of the program of the College Symphony Orchestra Concert, April 20th, and again, April 27th, when the Janesville Kiwanis Club invited the Glee Club to their noon luncheon at the Grand Hotel. Here a half hour's program was given. A few words concerning the program itself might be in order. It was varied with different types of high grade songs, unique sketches, unusual solos, and a good cornet quartet. Mllch favorable comment was made everywhere on the Club's ren- dition of Rubinstein's "Three Pictures" from the "Tower of Babel". This group is of a type seldom attempted by a college chorus. Mr. Sheard's solos, Scotch songs "a la Harry Lauder", always brought several encores. and "Dick", never failing to make a hit, won the hearts of his listeners everywhere. "Prof" Stringer gave his number of ever pleasing solos that won him his enviable place in music circles. He disap- pointed many audiences, however, because he often responded to only on-e encore. The cornet quartet by Joe Johnson, Clyde Arrington, lllilton Davis, and Chester Newman was a pleasing and unique number. Mr. Johnson responded to these en- cores with his cornet solos. The sad tale of "Milt" Davis in 'Tm Only a Sophomore" was as pathetic as it was grotesque, and it gave merriment, variety, and spice to the program. So successful was the little dramatic sketch the year before that again the Club used "The Coquette" as a stunt in the program. lt was a success at every entertainment.

ID A Fable CFreely translated from the original Chinesej Once many years ago in the good old days when wealth seeking merchant-men cruised the Oriental seas, laden with sparkling gems and the intoxicating aroma of rare spices instead of lying off the jersey Coast laden with sparkling wines and the still more intoxicating aroma of rare whiskies, a mighty potentate, VVun Lung, held sway over the peaceful island of Tee Enn Tee. There were many island kingdoms and more island potentates in that obscure cor- ner of the Yellow Sea, but Wun Lung was the most powerful and the wealthiest of all, for his kingdom was a full five miles across, and the inhabitants were many and hardy. The land itself was as barren as a brick road, but it worried the Tee Enn Tees not a whit. The world owed them a living, and they collected it. Over this prosper- ous community Wun Lung ruled with a rod of iron and the aid of his grand vizier, the wise and crafty Fu Lish. The word of the king was law, and nothing was im- possible if he commanded. Now the king had a young and beautiful daughter, the fair Princess Ho Mlee, and he loved his daughter much. The gratification of her slightest whim was his sole delight. He lay awake all night thinking how he might devise new pleasures for her, and he spent the whole day trying to remember them. Now the princess was in love with the stalwart warrior, YVee Kling. He was a slave to her least wishg he rivaled the king in his affection for fair I-lo Mleeg he lived but to please her passing fancy. It would seem that Ho Mlee should have been happy. She had the man she loved,- for she really did love him, she had wealth, and she had unlimited power, but she was not happy all the time. She was happy only a certain part of each day. That delectable portion commenced with the hour which heralds the coming of those celestial fires, the Oriental moon and the twinkling stars, and it terminated when Wee Kling, crushing his rice straw derby' to his loyal and noble heart, took his sad departure from the lofty palace of Wun Lung. You must not infer that WVee Kling came only at night to see the fair Ho Mlee, He came in the morning, he came in the afternoon, he came at night, but there was an unusual peculiarity about his visits. When he came at night and the moon and the stars shone upon him and inspired him, he waxed eloquent, and the princess was happy. But when he came in the daytime and there was no sympathetic moon, the bright sun dazzled him, and he was as silent as the clams on the seashore, and the princess was perplexed and troubled. And she wished that it would ever be night and that the celestial fires would burn forever. Now the princess pondered the matter much in the secrecy of her bower, and she reached a decision. She said, "I will tell my trouble to my most noble father, Wun Lung, the most powerful potentate in the Yellow Seas. He will solve my difficulty as rapidly as a ten yen coin vanisheth at a bargain sale." So saying she betook herself to the gilded throne of her father and fell before him and cried, "Oh, most noble father! Lineal descendant of the sun and the moon! Thou whose ancestors are most exalted, I crave a favor of thy magnanimous generosity." And her father took her by the hand and said, "Speak, my fair daughter. Your request is granted-be it what it may." Then was Ho Mlee exceedingly joyful for she knew that the word of a Chinese prince is as good as his bond, and she disclosed her heart's desire.

This part of their train- ing was under the supervision of H. R. Sheard. "Dick" was in charge of the Club at that time. The church was completely filled for the concert, and everyone seemed satisfied with his evening entertainment. The operetta was especially well appreciated there. On the evening of Nlarch 30th the Glee Club arrived at Battle Creek. They were given a hearty welcome and made to feel at home for their three-day stay. A short program was given that evening at the Sanitarium after which all the fellows were glad to get a good night's rest. The following morning the Glee Club sang at the Sanitarium Chapel at the regular Sabbath morning service. Saturday night the regular concert was given before an audience of about fifteen hundred people. The program as a whole was unusually well appreciated, and numerous encores were re- quested. "Dick" Sheard's Scotch songs were especially well liked. The following evening, Easter Sunday, a sacred concert was given at the Presbyterian Church before a packed house. Monday morning, although the men were sorry to leave the good times and the hospitality of Battle Creek, they set out for Berrien Springs. There the concert was given during the afternoon in the chapel of the Emmanuel Missionary College. The last three concerts, Milton, Janesville, and Delavan, were well attended by very appreciative audiences. lVIany compliments on the Glee Club's work and Profes- sor Stringer's ability as a director were heard from all sides. One of the features of the program was the group of Scotch songs, sung "a la Harry Lauder," by Mr. Sheard. These songs never failed to please. Another fea- ture was the "Act of Up-to-date Grand Opera." The 1923 season has been a success in every way, and the Glee Club has brought honor to itself and to the college.

STRINGER OUR COLORS S251 Page One Hundred Ninety-three F DES A FABLE fContinuerl from Page 1892 heard this astounding request, he was sore perplexed, and he summoned the crafty Fu Lish that he might counsel him in the course that he should pursue. All night long they toiled with this weighty matter, and when morning came, they issued a solemn edict that the sun should cease to shine at twelve o'clock noon and the moon and stars should take its place. Now the population was considerably agitated by the rumor that night was to pre- vail forever, and they came to the palace of Wun Lung in vast multitudes. It so hap- pened that Wee Kling was among those whoheard this report, and he made his way to the palace with as much haste as becomes a royal lover. When he arrived, the fair Ho Mlee unfolded her plan, but he said nought, and the princess thought that he scorned the power of her paternal relative, and she was wroth with him and desired never to see him more. When the appointed hour was reached, the sun still shone right merrily, and not even the sharpest eye might detect a star twinkle. Then was Wun Lung very wroth indeed, and he offered that any one who could make the stars be seen by day might name his own reward. The news of this wonderful opportunity spread over the island like wildfire, and it reached the prisoners as they lay in the gloomy dungeons of Tee Enn Tee. It fell upon the ears of a captive mariner like the softest music, for what is more sinple for a hard-boiled Yankee than to make stars be seen in the daytime? So the Yankee mariner, Pat Hogan by name, craved an interview with Fu Lish and came to terms with him. He was to make the celestial fires appear to both the king and his minister, and his freedom was' the price of his work. Then did Pat Ho- gan to rejoice indeed, for he knew that the word of a Chinese potentate is as good as his bond. The king ordered that fine raiment should be put upon the stranger, but he declined it saying, "I have an arduous task to perform. Give me but food. and a little drink and I can dispense with the vestmentsf' Then the king and the crafty Fu Lish summoned together all the court, and the Yankee mariner rolled up his sleeves and said, "Attend ye well, my every move." And the monarch and his minister stared fixedly at him, and with his right hand he smote Wun Lung firmly in the eye, and with his left hand he did likewise for the crafty Fu Lish, and the sun and the moon, and the stars, and many new planets reeled before their startled optics in broad daylight. The word of a Chinese potentate is as good as his bond 5 therefore Pat Hogan walked forth from the palace of Wun Lung a free man. As for NVee Kling, the stalwart warrior, he was dejected to the seventh abyss of gloom because the fair princess Ho Mlee was vexed with him. So he went into a deserted portion of the city, and cutting his pigtail from his head, he bound it around his throat and hanged himself to a lamp-post. And the fair Ho Mlee wept bitterly. Now this tale has a moral. lt may be that the most powerful potentate-even a class room potentate-cannot make the celestial fire of genius burn when the hour is not meet for such a conllagragation and that any insistence on this point may produce results little expected, or it may be but to show the mischief than can be wrought by a maiden's whims, or perhaps it may be something else, but rest assured that there is a moral.

This was too much for the Juniors, who like the Seniors, were inexperienced and blundering about the game. The third-year men could not boast even one first-string man and the large amount of Floor work and shooting at the hoop resulted in little gain for them. At times the game was evenly played, but with so many men against them who had been playing the game all season, the Juniors were covered up with the score of 14 to 2. Why the 2? Well, Barlow Spoon made two free throws when the Frosh got too rough, However, the Juniors felt sure of one game and they went into it to win. That Was the one against the Seniors. The younger class found their mark in this set-to and played havoc with the Senior guarding. The spectators seemed to enjoy the game in spite of its one-sidedness and the score in favor of the Juniors, 18-8. In what was without doubt the fastest game of the tournament the Sophs won from the Frosh by a very close score. The game was a whirlwind from start to finish. Scoring started early in the game but was suspended when each team en- deavored to play a defensive game and thus find out the weak points of the other. The score stood 6-4 atl the end of the half in favor of the first-year men. The last period of the game was exceedingly fast and the Sophs came back with a vengeance. The second-year men out-pointed the wearers of the green two to one in the second half and took the tilt, 10-9. Dillner was the high scorer for the Sophs. The Senior-Frosh game was not so exciting at first for both sides played very erroneously, missing shots and free throws. But Lanphere for the Seniors and Merton Sayre for the Frosh opened the counting. Many fouls were called, but no one seemed able to take advantage of them for successful free throws. The game grew more fierce and tries at goal were frequent. The Seniors were greatly helped by the presence of Lanphere and Hargis, who did their parts well in holding the Frosh to a low score. The first-year men took the game, however, 12 to 8. The Sophomores cinched the interclass championship by defeating the Juniors in a hard-fought game. The score does not show the hotly contested battle as it was. The third-year men resorted to a defensive game, charging through the Sophs' guard whenever opportunity seemed to present a chance. There was a great deal of so-called playing around the middle of the floor, due to the excellent guarding of both teams. The Junior defense held off the attacks of the younger men in good fashion until the last three minutes of play. 4Then two of the Juniors were in- jured, and the Sophs had no trouble in breaking through for several baskets. Nine points were piled up in this time, and the whistle blew when the score stood 21 to 8 for the Sophs. Arrington made all the points for his class. For the Sophs, the honors were divided between Seager, "Cal" Hill, and Dillner. NOTHING THERE Deac Davis Cproudlyj-lVIy mind is my memorandum. Shorty-Oh, l seeg a sort of blank book.

The Lawrence College five came to Nlilton and won their return game February ll by a score of 27-9. Our men gave a very poor exhibition of basketball and only in short spurts did they show ability at the game. Lawrence had a strong offensive and seemed to shoot baskets almost at will. Milton's slowness in dropping back to guard position after losing the ball made easier work of scoring for the fast visitors. The Milton team went to Waukesha February 1-1- for a game with Carroll Col- lege. Here again our men played a cleaner game than their opponents. Our cage men led the scoring in the second half, but Carroll had piled up too many points to be over- taken by our warriors. Gridley was high scorer of the game, making three field goals and four free throws. Our men fought hard but started too late in the game, which ended favorably for Carroll by 27-19. The Ripon College team played her return game on our floor February 18. Coach Crandall substituted three men in this game, endeavoring to find the best combination, all to no avail so far as winning the game was concerned. G. Sayre dropped three pretty goals, thus putting himself in the lead of the scoring men. However, Ripon proved too fast for us and we lost the last game of the season by the score of 10-19. 1921-22 BASKETBALL SUMMARIES 1-1 games played--VVon 3, lost 11-Percentage .21-1 Date-Opponent FG ' FT FM TF PF Milton l2fl0f2l ...... 4 ...... 2 .... 7 ..,. 2 .... 1 lvlarquette ....... .... 1 0 .... 2 .... 1 .- 1 .... 8 Milton 12f1-1-!2l ...... -1 ...... 3 .... 8 .... 1 .,.. 5 Ripon ........ .... .... 1 5 .... 5 .... 2 -. -1- .... 7 Milton 12f3lf21 ,..... ...... 17 ...... 2 .... 6 .... 1 .... 3 Alumni .................. .... 2 .... 3 .... 1 .. 1 7 Milton 1f7f22 .......................... -1- ...... 3 .... 7 .... 0 .... 9 ....

Now Count Octave was somewhat run down and so he consulted his physician, who remarked in a sad tone, "Well, old top, I fear you're a little off your bays. What you need is a rest. As a tonic, I suggest a trip in the country." Now Octave had an eye for business, and he had hardly hit the country town before he picked out "the one and only girl." She was a Major"s daughter and she had a full measure of natural beauty. Venus herself couldn't have had more graces. In fact, our heroine had all the other village belles beat a mile The lllajor was a fat man with a dominant will, and he was always making .vlurs about the Count because he was a minor and had a slight foreign accent. So the llflajor was ever trying to stafcc him off. But Octave put his best foot foremost, and the first step was to write a notc of a few lines telling his lady to be at the Post Oflice at three o'clock, and they would take a run in the country. The lllajor-'x daughter was thoroughly disgusted with her even tenor of life, so she was on the zloti at three o'clock and oFl they started in the roadster. 'Twas the time of year when all nature is in tune. The birds were trilling mer- rily. The country-side was all in cadence. They had gone some space when a sharp .vtaccato rent the air. The belle let loose a crcsccndo scream, but Uctaec assured her that it was only a Yat tire. So she stepped lightly out and leaaned against the bar of a gate while he was changing tires. And as she was getting back into the car, Ucfaw having gained a good hold on her, started his theme thusly: "Darling, you have struck the chords of my heart. For you I'd scale the highest mountain. I repeat, I'll give you the keys of my heart. Now can't we tie up ?" Then he was mute. There was a .vustaimvl p1ru.vc'. The belle took a half-stuff to- ward him. There was a sezni-quavrr in her voice. Then with a burst of capriccio She purred: "I know, dear Octave, that you haven't a quarter, but surely we could live in the greatest lzarnzonyf' Whereas they had come poco rituenzlo, the return was presto. They did double- tune up to the parsonls steps. The parson gave her to Octave to have and to holrl, and they aflixed their signatures on the 'Qlottwl line", When the Mfzjor' heard about it, he was in a furorz' and even had to be braced upg but realizing that he was now only Subzlominant and that Count Octave was the leading tone, he gave them his blessing, and Octave and his wife lived happy ever acter. Consider the fish-- lf he didn't open his mouth, he wouldn't get caught. .

Though the match was lost by an overwhelming score, it was highly valuable in experience gained, especially to Skaggs and Kneeland, who were unaccustomed to match play. The technique of the Milton men was very good, but they showed a lack of head work in meeting their more experienced opponents. On lVIay Sth Milton entertained Wielch and Greene of the University of South- ern California, and again beheld a brand of tennis seldom seen in VVisconsin. The Californians won the match with ease.

As a preparatory practice for the home match with Campion the Milton team clashed with the Janesville Tennis Team on the home courts Sunday, May 28th. The match was not quite completed because the Janesville men had to leave. rr 1 KJ f' QM--yi----s ,jr---fg:-H-3 .H ,L-V,-.3 .W-...F :i-:'.,e--:..- N- - , . -:.-ff 1: -"KN: 2. 1.9. i .1 - 11 .:11f 27.34 :' :J 1' 1- 1 .EQ yil i'E.j!l 1, -Q -, - J 'Ph .",9.' -L1 fig: Page Tfwo Hundred Sefucn QE A Our Store Opened in Edgerton E ' Featuring : EVERYTHING NEW IN 5 HOME OF WOMENS' WEAR E F R E : : I ST ,NATIONAL PICTUR S We Sell Only High Class Merchan- E Elghth Successful Year dise at Reasonable Prices ' : in Business E Always Ready to Co-operate with the MRS.

Score of match: 3-2 in Milton's favor. Campion visited Milton on May 31st and found a rainy day and wet courts. However, the teams journeyed to Janesville and the match was played on the Y. M. C.

Kneeland had his revenge in this match and completely outclassed Marshalldon from start to finish. Daland, not playing quite up to form, lost the second set to Wittig, but came back strong in the third, winning in a spectacular deuce set. Team work in the doubles was almost automatic in its precision. The score of the match was 3-0. On June 7'th was played the match with Wheaton College which had been post- poned previously on account of bad weather.

Six matches were to have been played, four singles and two doubles, and it was a great disappointment to,both teams that the match could not be finished.

S. Kneeland, A. G. Sayre, C. F. Oakley, R. L. Burdick, and A. E. Skaggs. Four of these men will probably return for the 1923 season and form a nucleus for the 1923 team.

The Sophs were rough, however, and not a man escaped being charged with a foul. The Specials humbled the Frosh in a rough and tumble scrap. The game was fast and the Specials looked like class champions. Twenty personals were called in this game which ended in a score of 18-9. The Juniors seemed to have a weak team and proved quite easy at the hands of the Frosh, who took this game by a score of 14-3. The Juniors were not up to their usual form and did not display their Hashy offensive work. The dope was upset when the Sophomores and Seniors met on the Hoor, and the Seniors were beaten by the close score of 8-9. Oakley could not be in this game because of an injured foot, so the scoring machine of the fouirth year men was put out of commission. But if injuries are to be mentioned, the Sophs had to play without three of their regulars. One of the hardest fought games was that between the Seniors and Specials. It ended in favor of the Class of '22, score I5-12. Until the last five minutes of play the teams were playing evenly, the Specials leading a little. But then some- thing broke and Lanphere raced down the Hoor to score three baskets in rapid suc- cession. These two teams were now tied for first place, with a percentage of .775. ln order to decide third place the Frosh and Sophs met in a very close game featured by excellent guarding of both teams. "Cal" Hill was high score man for the Sophs in spite of the fact that he played with his "bad knee" done up in harness. The Frosh placed third by winning this game 12-9. First place was decided by another game between the Seniors and Specials. This game was unnecessarily rough. The Seniors led in the scoring the first half but the honors split even in the second, giving the game and championship to the Class of '22. A summary by percentages follows: Pct.

"Rusty" is a good athlete who springs a surprise now and then for the aston- ishment and amusement of the spectators. Such was the case in the VVhitewater Track Meet when by a spectacular RUSSELL R. HILL finish, he crossed the line at the head of the field in the "Rudy" two-mile race. VVhatever the game, Hill puts himself Two awards into it with lots of fight and gains honor to himself in Two chevrons Intercollegiate activities. He held his own in the defensive Two bars work of the College eleven in football, season of 1922. On . the offense, he was a charging force which requires several men to stop. Russell is doing successful work at the University of Nebraska. Among the other men who won a first award in some sport, should be mentioned Charles S. Kneeland of Battle Creek, Mich. His ability at the game of tennis placed Milton College on a higher plane than ever before in this sport. Those who played him once, feared to meet him again. He has garnered honors to him- self in the tennis field wherever he has been. It is unfortunate that Milton could not support a tennis program commensurate with such ability. Because of this fact, "Chuck" thought it best to go elsewhere so as to be able to improve his talent by a larger schedule. Milton's offensive ability at football in 1922 was due in a large degree to the playing of Melvin Chadsey and Kenneth Kepler. The forward passes of this com- bination, Chadsey to Kepler, were the causes of long gains, and in a few instances, resulted in touchdowns. Playing fullback, Chadsey did some fine punting as well resulted in touchdowns. Playing fullback, Chadsey did some finepun ting as well as making substantial gains through the line. Kepler's ability to get free served him well and enabled him to complete passes, intercept, or get an opponent with the ball, The line plunging of Lovell Blacke gained considerable ground for the Brown and Blue. Frank Green and Elmer Bingham played well at the guard positions, giving' their utmost to make a solid wall when on the defense, and a battering-ram when on the offensive. With a good center in Franklin Bentz and a man who played hard at tackle in Rolland Meyer, Milton made a much better showing in football in 1923 than in 1922. 1' "Awards": M's won, "chevrons": yearsg "bars": different sports.

George Hutchins has won first award in baseball for the last two years. As catcher for the Milton team, "Hutch" plays a consistent game and supports his fellow players in a worthy manner. Two of the 1922 awards in baseball went to Clyde Arrington and Corliss Baker. These men handle the sides of the outfield by good playing. They have proved themselves quite efficient in stopping the attacks of the opponents when such offensive playing called for action in the outer garden. Rollin Gridley, pitcher for the 1922 team, handled the box position in good shape. Even though a Freshman, he proved his worth and captured a permanent berth on the nine. By his good deliv- ery the Brown and Blue was able to hold the score of the opponents on several occasions. Clarence Hinkley has the distinction of being the only Freshman this year to get a place on the Varsity Basketball five.. His good playing at the guard position clinched a first award in this sport.

It can be made a very interesting pastime as well as a beneficial and enjoyable exercise. There are every year in attendance at the College those who take no part in any athletics. Why is this? Students, above many other classes of people, need exercise, and' when they can get it as easily and as enjoyably as in playing volley ball, why isn't there a Volley Ball League here? When one gets into the workings of the game it is fascinating, and a lively rivalry can be developed between teams. There has been a little interest created in this game during the past two years, but the numbers taking part in it ought to be multiplied several times. Everyone in school should find some sport in which he or she can engage to take away the more serious work of school occasionally. Perhaps there are not many who overwork, but we could do much better work if we divided our time better betweenthe Spiritual, the Mental, and last but by no means least, the Physical. As generally considered, the Physical is much easier of development along the lines of a beneficial and interesting pastime. And that is just what Volley Ball amounts to.

I stepped down from the late train with a feeling of misgiving and doubt. Could this be the town to which my Uncle had referred in his letter as the brightest, pleasantest spot in the Catskills? The heavy rain had abated and a steady drizzle had taken its place. Dull, foggy lights showed here and there in the pitch bla.ckness. A door of the little station opened, letting out a Hood of light and permitting me to glimpse a bench of loungers within. I had wired my Uncle that l would be in on the early evening train, but owing to a change in schedule, I had missed my train. My uncle was a total stranger to me, but I had gathered from my father, just before start- ing, that he was of the well-bred New England type and moderately wealthy. I stepped out of a rising puddle of water and walked up the boarded platform. This was cer- tainly a bad beginning. Once inside the station, I hurried over to an obscure corner and took from my top coat a recent letter from my father's brother, urging me to spend the week with him at his summer home. I read it through for the tenth time and made sure of the ad- dress. Then, with firm resolve, I left the station and made off up the narrow street. A small taxi circled the street corner carefully and slid to a standstill at my beckon. The driver leaped out with alacrity, and threw in my bags. "Where to, mister ?" he asked in the New England drawl. I gave him the ad- dress and took my seat. The car bounded ahead and took a sloping road that led east- ward out of town. In a short time we had left the little village far below, and were roaring along slowly through a trail between two walls of towering pines. I was led to believe, from my Uncle's letter, that he lived some distance from town, but l was not prepared for such a ride as this. We lurched to a stop by a small stream, and while the driver filled the steaming radiator of his antiquated bus, I ventured to ask, "Are you sure that you haven't mistaken the address ?" The other shook his head. "We'll soon be there," informed the driver, and took his place again. "Second trip l've made up there tonight," he said without turning his head. "Fellow was an Englishman, I guess. Looked like one of the high-nimighty chaps that open the door for you in swell homes. Looked like a butler. Naow what would the old man want of another butler when he's got a haol house full of 'em ?" Our conversation suddenly stopped. A huge house blinked at us with dozens of yellow eyes. I alighted and, after a heated debate, strode up the wide cobblestone path to the porch. The ride had cost me twenty-five dollars. Twenty-Eve dollars- so this was the Catskills. 3 A maid answered the bell and showed me into an elaborately decorated hall built entirely of oak. Alone again, I frantically went over bits of conversation and lengthy excuses that I had memorized, to be used in apologizing for my late arrival. A bald headed man in evening clothes suddenly cut short my rehearsing. "You are the new butler, I suppose? You don't look like a good butler to me." Then he noticed my muddy shoes. "VVhat in the name of blue-belted blazes do you mean by coming in here like that! Your outfit is in the room to your left." Before I could protest, he had hurried me into my room. Dazedly I got into a huge swallow-tailed affair and trousers that almost hid my shoes. "Trying to play a little joke on me," l thought, as he stormed out of the room. "The old codger is certainly mad about something." I had just started to fashion my tie about a huge collar, many times too large for me, when my Uncle appeared again. "Hurry, man! Canit you?" he sputtered. .wi -ui 711' :fl 15 5-P05-Q nz" .fysif V1-1-3524 T' Page Tfteo Hundred T-wenty-three we Golden Eagle LEVY'S Distributers of all that is new for young men and Women Suits Frocks Wraps Shoes Hosiery Fabrics o Accessories Blouses Society Brand Suits Furnishings for Men Florsheim and Walk-Over Shoes IANESVILLE, WISCONSIN llllllllllllllIlllllllIllllIIIlllllllIIIIIIllllllllllllllllllllllll IlllllllIllllIIIIlIllllIIIIlllIllllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII f I I was ready to fight. "My dear sir," came a dull, dazed voice that I could hardly recognize as my own, "you are making-" Instantly he was towering over me in a rage. "Another word and I'Il throw you out. Don't give me any back talk, see ?" Then, getting the better of his rage, he went on, "That's a fine way for a man in your position to talk. I have a guest in from New York tonight, and I want good service. I'll show you your duties at the door. Now hustle upl"' The chair by the door was uncomfortable. I tried to steady my whirling brain. Could this be my Uncle? No doubt of that. The large bronze letters over the check-room door confirmed this. "The old fellow just wants to have a little fun with me," I repeated. The bell rang, and for the next ten' minutes I was kept busy at the door. Once I slipped and fell on the waxed floor when a late party flocked in. It set them in an, uproar. "How's the skating, Charley ?" asked one. Murder was in me at that moment. VVould this nightmare never end? Something seemed to snap within me. Nothing could stop me now. I dashed into the huge room and made out an all too familiar person in one corner, who was earnestly talking with a light haired, ruddy complexioned gentleman. Where had I seen this man before? At a table screened by a large palm, I studied the pair opposite me. My Uncle's face was forbidding and dark, but the other man had his back turned to me. After a studious silence, my Uncle said icily, "You admit that you are a broker in Wall Street, and then you are unable to give me a single quotation. Your father wrote that you were bringing up the Wallace papers with you. Do you have them here ?" The other hesitated, and fumbled for his handkerchief. "Ah, yes, er-I mean no. That is, perhaps they are in my bag." He mopped his shining face and rose quickly from the table. As he passed my table where I sat unobserved, I recognized the fel- low, and laughed. A great dawn was beginning to shine. Reaching in my pocket, I took out a bundle of papers and walked over to where the old man sat. Taking one of my business cards, I tossed it upon the bundle of papers. I "What's this ?" he growled. Then he silently studied the objects before him for a minute. Slowly he bowed his head and began to finger the ends of the bundle, grop- ing for something which he could not find. He said simply, "My boy, how can I ever apologize-" "Good evening," I said evenly, and walked away with my relative plucking at my arm. "Oh, come," he begged. "You see there's been a mistake. I haven't the least idea who that idiot could be." Then a full realization of what he had done seemed to tumble down upon him. "O Jehosaphat!" he moaned. "Up to this week he has served in a footman's place at my East Side Club," I in- formed him while in my room, getting into some decent clothes. - "And I gave him a dinner coat," groaned the other, "and a pint of my best stock!" Then, "No wonder he didn't know a thing I asked him. I knew you were English too, or I might not have made such a blunder. But you will stay for the night, surely ?" "Thank you, I'm afraid not," I said in answer to his last two lines. I had just received a wire from the city, and business matters made my return very urgent, y'know. Before a town car had swept down the driveway to take me to the train, I had promised my uncle to spend a week with him during trout season. He seemed to be a good sport after all. As I climbed aboard the midnight train, a young Englishman clambered up the steps ahead of me. It was my Uncle's guest. G. E.

Prof. Fred-Yes, h-m-m-m, I suppose it is, but it reminds me of the report of expenditures from Jan. just take a look at that. 4 Prof. John Cafter reading a whilej-VVhat's this item here of three dollars and seventy-eight cents for a muffler? ' Prof. Fred trolling his eyes in a knowing mannerj-Why, that goes on the lawn mower. Prof. John-Lawn mower! Why that made just as much noise during chapel as it ever did. Uinter Prof. Si, clearing his throatj. Prof. John Ccontinuingl--Look here, Si, here is a l:ill for a muffler to put on the lawn mower, and goodness knows that we're having none of the benefit we should, either from the mufller or from the money for a banquet. Prof. Si fsitting down and thoughtfully pulling his moustachel--Well, I trust in Mr. Lanphere's integrity. Prof. Fred Ccalmlyj-So do I. Prof. John Cvehementlyj-So do I, but that doesn't get us anywhere. Prof. Si fasidej-Har! I-lar! Prof. Fred-just a minuteg l'll ask lVIr. Crandall about a receipt. CLeaves room and returns 'with lllr. Crandall, the treasurer, at his elbowl. No, he hasn't a receipt. Mr, Crandall-Mr, Lanphere usually gives me the receipt as soon as he gets it, but he hasn't turned in a receipt for this as yet. Prof. Fred-This is too bad. I hate to have anything like this come up, but we must find Mr. Lanphere. Miss Atkinson, will you kindly hunt up the janitor and tell him to acquiesce whatever he is doing and come to the ollice at once?

SATI S FACT ORY D EALIN G' S' 'x I age few Illlll lrn! Tlliriy fX DES Prof. Si-Seventy-eight, to be exact. Prof. Fred-Yes, seventy-eight cents, for a muffler for which the janitor has spent the money. We can find no trace of the muffler on the lawn mower nor of the re- ceipt for the money. VVe are now engaged in trying to solve this perplexing conundrum. Miss Zinn Ccynicallyj-Of all things. Why don't they put the muffler on the lawn mower engine if they have one? Dear! Dear! I Nliss Maxson-What is a muffler? Frau Crandall Cin an undertonej-Sh-h-h, don't ask such questions. A muffler is a thing to wear around your neck. Miss Maxson fhumblyj-Yes, but what would they use it on a lawn mower for? Mr. Oakley fimportantlyj-A muffler is a mechanical attachment to deaden the sound of any combustion engine, Prof. John-This engine sure comhusts all right. Prof. Eddie Shaw fmetaphysicallyj--I'll say she does. Prof. Fred--Well, to return to the point, I have sent for Mr. Lanphere and-he will no doubt throw some light on this dark matter. flfnter Prof. Slringer singing in the monotone of a minor, "la-be-da-me-ni-po-tu,'' with the stress on the audiznee. Lois is at his heels, but she ean'l he seen till he sits downj. Lois fbreathlessly, she has just seen George Babcockl--I can't find Mr. Lanphere. Prof. Stringer fceases singing long enough to talkj-VVhy, I just saw Jan over on the tennis courts wrestling with Frank Green. Prof. Fredf disgustedlyj--Well, I'll be cow-kicked. Miss Atkinson, please tell him that he is wanted and wanted badly. Frau Crandall fhorror struckj--Why, Alfred! Such language! CMiss' Stillman starts fo giggle and Prof. Fred looks at her in such a manner that she sudden'ly hnds her tonsils are iiekling and she has to cough. lVI rs. Rogers looks terribly uneomforfahle and fhe resr of the liueulfy mainfain a blank catch-ine-if-you-can expressionl . Prof. Tommy fattempting to be jovialj--VVe might put a harmonica over the exhaust of the engine and have the janitor play "Home, Sweet Home" every morning before chapel! CHI' laughs and Prof. John, who hears the joke but doesn't see il, laughs also. The rest look horedj. Ulnter Jan. his rap set jauntily over one ear and a smile unvlfnfrefl around his nose.D Jan-Well, I threw him twice out of three times. Prof. Fred--Threw whom? Jan-Frank Green, and I can do it any day in the week except Sundays. CPro,f Si either clears his throat or says something in Frenrh, at least no one under- stands himj. Prof. Fred Cdrawing himself up in his chair and clearing his throat with more or less effortj-Mr. Lanphere, you were summoned before this meeting to give some information in regard to a matter which we have had brought to our attention. lt seems that the bills which you present are not always clear. VVe do not doubt your integrity, but there is a little item here which we wish you would explain. To be brief, it is item Number 7 on this last bill of yours.

This line is dedicated to Philip. Philip who? Philip space. MY PRIVATE OFFICE The office stove howls as the cold wind draws up its chimney. How gratefully warm it seems as the shrieking tells of cold outside. The Review dummy is finished and there remains yet an hour till midnight. It is long enough to write an English theme and yet I hardly know how to begin. It is so much easier to merely sit with one's feet stretched out to the fire and dream. I might scribble down my thoughts as I sit here with a letter file propped up on my knee for a writing pad, but the dis- turbing idea enters my head that perhaps my thoughts would not be worth recording. At any rate there is no reason why I should exert myself. It is nice to be alone some- times. I am the only person in the building. As I sit here quietly I hear a mouse rustling in the papers behind the stove. He has no regard for midnight or midday. He takes his rest when it pleases him. If he stays up all night he can sleep all the next day-I cannot. I am getting sleepy now. It is almost time to go home and to bed. I hate to move and disturb the mouse that gnaws waste paper so contentedly behind the stove. He does not know that I would not hurt him. Good night. . R. W.
