WHITFORD Presidentls Message The President of the College wishes to extend his greetings to all who are in any way connected with Milton Collegeeto present members of the student body, to former students and friends, and t0 the local community. Milton College was founded eighty-three years ago, and has made an honorable record. Today it has an excellent reputation for providing intellectual training and character development. Every student should make his college training a preparation for earning a living, but not as his primary aim in going to college. The desire for culture and capacity to'enjoy the highest in life, and the purpose to render service to mankind should he dominant motives in his mind. The former students know the ideals and aims that have characterized the work of Milton College through all the years. They know too the high minded Class of men and women who have gone out from the walls of Milton. Milton College aspires to continue this program in a larger measure, and it asks for the active support of its old students to make this aspiration possible. Milton College owes much to the local community. Without the vision of the founder of Milton College, and the sustained interest of the citizens of Milton, this institution could not have existed. On the other hand, the community has received much from the college. Because of the mutual benefits to the entire Milton community that have come through the work of Milton Col- lege, the institution looks to its local friends for sympathetic and material support. Alfred Edward Whitford llugc th'cnly-f-M; REV. CLARENCE D. ROYSE Vice-Presidentis Message we look to our colleges to conserve the best standards of the past and to build ideals for the future. Their mission is spiritual, not material. But the ideals of a college need a material basis for their expression. We need grounds and buildings, libraries and laboratories, heat and light, and many other ttthings? Ideals of Christian character and intellectual culture are the real workers of Milton College, but material things are the tools of their workmanship. A good college does not forget its ideals, but does not become idealistic in the sense that it neglects its tools, either as to keeping its kit complete or as to keeping the individual tools in proper condition for the best work. To the material, then, certain of our efforts must be dedicated, yet we are not materialistic. Always there must be iihewers of wood and drawers of water"; and always there will be some whose work may seem less noble; but in the intererelation of material and spiritual, all good work is noble and none is ignoble. Our ambition for Milton is that she shall be a good college; that she shall stand for the highest things in manhood and womanhood; that the spirit of learningethe real scientific spirit:sha11 dominate her class rooms; and that she shall prosper in the things material that help to make possible the realization of her spiritual and cultural ideals.

CHEMISTRY Professor: William D. Burdick, "Prof. Bill," M. A., University of Wisconsin. Students of chemistry may be grouped into three classes: those who will make chemistry their life work either as teachers or as commercial chemists; those who need training in certain heltls of chemistry as a pre-requisite to a study of medicine or dentistry; and those who desire a knowledge of the subject for its informational and cultural value alone. Although the courses presented by the department are designed necessarily to fit the needs of the first two groups, it is our aim to fulfil so far as is possible the expectations of the third group.

To perfect its mastery requires the highest type of ability, mental, moral, and physical, but it returns dividends for honest endeavor more quickly than others in that it is less common. Anyone of but everyday talent may learn to play the violin to the extent of fulfilling his innate requirement.

PIANO AND THEORY OF MUSIC Instructor: Miss Alberta Crandall, "Miss Albertaf Principal of the School of Music. That music is of great value in the training of the mind was the belief of Gladstone, who said, HMusic is one of the most forcible instruments for train- ing, for arousing and for governing the mind and the spirit of man? Yet of greater value is its power to speak a universal language which binds all peoples together in peace and harmony, and in the words of Henry Ward Beecher, ltMusic cleanses the understanding, inspires it and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself? It is the aim of the Music Department to give its students an intelligent understanding of the intricacies of harmonic structure and form of music, and to prepare them for usefulness as artists and teacherseMiss Alberta Crandall. ORGAN Instructor: Mrs. Kathryn Bliss Rogers, ttMrs. Rogers? llThe organ is the most complex of all instruments; it is the most harmon- ious of all; it is the grandest of all.

MATHEMATICS Professor: Alfred E. Whitford, Sc. D., Alfred University. Instructcr: Carroll F. Oakley, B. A., Milton College. G. Stanley Hall said, ltMathelnatics is the ideal and norm of all careful thinking." In a college of liberal arts where straight thinking is one of the goals of learning, mathematics is naturally an essential department of study. Mathematics has been an intrinsic element in human progress. All scientific progress rests on the predicting power and the exactness of mathematical reasoning. Again lttnathematics is the very embodiment of truth." This study then has ethical value as well as educational value, and has an important place in the building of character. A. E. thitfortl. GREEK Professor: Walter D. Thomas, M. A., Milton College. The chief types of poetry, epic, lyric, and dramatic and the chief styles of prose, historical, philosophical, and oratorical grew one by one with the devel- opment of the mental and social life of the Greek race. The Creek was a thinker and an artist, and he touched all he did with the perfection of his art.

Page Tlu'rty-two IN MEMORIAM WILLIAM CLARKE XYHITFURD t182871902i To those alumni Of Milttm College who knew him personally, it seems incredible that President Whitftml was born, lacking one year, a century ago. A pioneer in the development of states-craft and education in XVisconsin, yet he seems distinctly 0f the present. iYere he living today, his views would he clearly heard and his presence richly felt in the councils of the leaders in politics, social advancement, and educational progress. He was a man who lived abundantly in the present, who drew upon the inspiration of the past, and who built for the future with the vision of creative genius. In 1858, elected as prin- cipal of Milton Academy huntil they could find a better man for the place,', he continued to serve until nine years later, when through his own efforts, based upon his farsighted wisdom. the Academy became the College. Its first presi- dent, he built and wrought for the cullege until his life ehbed away just after Chapel, May 20, 1902, having given the last full measure of devotion to the work which he loved. Milton College will continue to enrich and mould the lives of her sons and daughters because of the principles of fearless thinking, consecrated service, and Christian faith upon which it was founded and developed by Elder VVhitford.

A teacher of rare ability and attractive personality. he Was respected and honored and loved by a host of loyal disciples. Many will remember him best of all for his skill in music, especially with the organ and as conductor of an orchestra. He was a linguist of marked ability, an adept scholar in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew, speaking French and German with such fluency and exactness that not infrequently he was mistaken for a foreigner. But for us at Milton, he was our "Prexyii, whose position and recognized standing in educational circles gave us great and justifiable pride, whose memory we honor, whose ideals we emulate, and whose upright, lovable character, we strive to imitate. Long after the double row of elms across the campus up to the Studio, trees which he planted, have grown large and old and in decay have passed away, his memory will be fresh and green in the lives of descendants of those who i came in contact with his personality.

There hangs on the north wall of the biology lecture room, a framed picture of Professor A. R. Crandall. His benign and kindly countenance looks down up- on the classroom as of old, seeming to display the same interest that he did when lecturing, when he stood before his classes, creating in them a sympathetic un- derstanding of the great out-Of-doors. He was a true scientist, eager and tireless; one of those strong characters which at various times have been at the head of the biology department. His was a full life, one blessed With an appreciation of the infinite beauty of the natural world. Ever interested in biological truth, he spent five years at Har- vard, studying Comparative Zoology. After thus spending the early part of his life in the East, he returned to his Alma Mater, to give the best of his life in her behalf. His unassuming and quiet demeanor endeared him to his students, who now are living a happier, more complete life through the insight he gave them into the natural beauties of the universe.

A. L. BURDICK Board of Trustees The trustees of any institution are fortunate when there is a harmonious relationshlp between themselves and the constituency which they serve; a sense of eomj'ianionship which causes each to feel the importance of united effort in bringing about desired results with the least amount of friction. In this respect the trustees of Milton College have been particularly favored for many years, and the present time is no exception for there has been exhibited 0n the part of all, particularly on that of the student body, that sympathetic and intelligent eobperation which has been so necessary in enabling the institution to carry on its work with a reasonable degree of success, where, if this con- dition had not obtained, it would have been accomplished only under the most tryingr circtnnstances. It is no secret that Milton College has been hampered in its usefulness because of a lack of endowment and funds to carry on work that is satisfactory to the faculty and students. This need has become so acute that the Board of Trustees has undertaken, in a determined effort, to increase the endowment sufheiently to meet these requirements. This is a stupendous task, one that demands the attention of all our friends and challenges their willingness to c06perate with those having the campaign in charge. V If Milton College is to maintain its position in the educational world, and so continue its usefulness to a large constituency of young men and women who recognize in it an ideal which is peculiar to Milton, as in others of the smaller Christian colleges, we must have the continued support of all our friends. This message would therefore appeal, not only to the faculty and students, but, as well, to all of our former students and the great circle of friends who have come to know the school through the work it has done and the help it has extended to thousands of young people through more than a half a century.

Milton College Development rage-l'V"I-IROUGH the courtesy of the Milton College Development organi- T zation, we are able to present in this number of the Fides pictures of the architectsl drawings showing one elevation each of the proposed 3mg new library building and new dormitory for girls. These drawings are only tentative, but in all probality any changes made from the present plans will be minor, and might not affect the outward appearance of the build- ings at all. The library building will be placed on the east slope of the campus south of VVhitford Memorial Hall, and will be seventy-nine by ninety-eight feet in extreme dimensions. The dormitory will stand at the southeast corner of the campus looking to the south. Its dimensions will be roughly seventy by one hundred and twelve feet. Both buildings will be strictly modern fire-proof construction, steel and concrete with surface facing of attractive brick in style to match the colonial type of architecture of the other buildings on the eamptis. With the addition of the two new buildings, together with the shifting that will occur in various departments by reason of space vacatei, Milton College will be fairly well prepared to meet the needs of several years in the future, so far as buildings are concerned. And of course, it is expected that the new equipment required will be in keeping with the standard of excellence that will characterize the buildings themselves. The building program also calls for a central heating plant with capacity to serve all of the college buildings, new and old. The place for this has not yet been determined. Nor has the work on this proceeded far enough that we can present a cut of the building. We all hope that by the time the next issue of the Fides comes off the press, the needed endowment will have been secured, and the three new buildings at least assured to us, if not actually completed or under construction. Page Forty-three Proposed New Library The new library building will include on the fn'st floor two large reading rooms and a stack room for books with a capacity of forty thousand volumes. On the second floor will be four rooms for the literary societies and for lecture purposes. Two additional recitation rooms are provided in the basement. By furnishing rooms for the lyceums in the new library building, the entire third Hoor 0f Whitford Memorial Hall will be available for expansiofl of the science departments. Page Forty-four Proposed Dormitory for Girls The girlsl dormitory will have accommodations for seventy-hve girls, and of course will be modern in every sense of the word. The building will be a three story structure and a basement. Good-sized parlors for receptions will be provided in the front part of the building 011 the hrst floor.

"mag; The two proposed new buildings shown on the previous pages, together with a central heating plant, cover the Development program on the side of buildings and equipment. But even greater than the building needs is the need for additional en- dowment. The trustees feel that it is of first importance to get our endowment increase, so the building program comes after the endowment in the Develop- ment budget. The College has at the present time $266,000 endowment. But we are paying an annuity on $4,300 of this and $18,000 more is hearing only a low rate of interest. The total income from endowment is $15,765.27. The College needs at least $300,000 additional endowment. The estimated cost of the proposed new buildings with their equipment is $200,000 making a total of $500,000 in the Milton College Development program. Plans are being laid for a campaign to raise this sum. A gift of $75,000 will build the new library $75,000 will build the new dormitory $15,000 will build the new central heating plant $40,000 will endow a professorship. Any amount from $1,000 up may be designated by the donor to be applied to any speciflc feature, such as the building of any certain unit 01' units of either new building, 01' the partial endowment of any certain chair.

Page F ifty-seven Class of ,26 been subjected to the customary evils of registration at Milton College, the youthful aspirants for the degree of Bachelor of Arts were notified that they were expected to organize in order to do $31355 battle with the Sophomores in the annual sack rush. The entering class displayed its ingenuity at this time by evolving a plan whose intrinsic qualities easily lowered the towering Sophs into the depths of defeat. During the first year at the college the members of the class did nothing to distinguish them from any other class. The men and women entered into debating. athletics. lyceum work, studying or any other activities that happened to appeal to the individual tastes. Leland Hulett was Chosen by the class to the president's chair for this first year. It was during- the second year that the class distinguished itself by in- stigating a custom of holding early morning breakfasts in near-by wood lots and this custom followed the class throughout the remainder of the years at: Milton. Orville Keesey was elected to pilot the class through the roughs and hazards of the second year. As in the preceding year. the members of the class formed large parts of the baseball, football and basketball squads, the debate teams. and the various musical organizations. Raymond Root, who had gained high repute the year before when he appeared as Romeo in the college play, was chosen to lead the class in the office of president during the third year that the class spent at Milton College. This year, also, the members passed by taking part in as many as possible of the various college Organizations, activities, events, and functions. The Senior year was, no doubt, the most important of those spent on the campus, mainly for the reason that the students came to the realization that they were soon to he set adrift in what is generally denoted as the future. It was necessary to conclude theses and to keep up in the regular work of the college curriculum. Most of the class felt that getting on speaking terms with a little practical knowledge would also be essential in order that the cruise upon lifels stormy seas would be smoother. Many east about for a place to anchor as a teacher in some high school, others were not so brave and accepted posi- tions of another nature, some succumbed to the charms of members of the opposite sex as a side line. The Juniors presented the Seniors with a fare- well banquet at Janesville, and everyone more or less prepared to he graduated from the ranks of the students of Milton College. All this happened in the Senior year. which was indeed a busy time for all those concerned. On XVednesday morning, June 9, 1926, the twenty eight members of the class of 1926 who had survived the several cuts in the ranks during the four years of college life were awarded their diplomas and the under-graduate life was at an end. Incidently, with the awarding of these diplomas, it was announced that seven members of the class had received the distinction of Cum Laude. while one was given the highest award yet presented a graduate of Milton College-that of Magna Cum Laude. :MTFTER the members of the class that was to be known as ,20 had Page Fiftyveight Class ,27 lilmer Raymond Akers. 11lilmer": Everett, Penn.

M. work, the athletic organizations, dramatic, oratory and debating clubs, and all of the regular activities to be found about the campus of a live and growing college, the members of the Class of ,27 also played rather intensive roles in some other clubs which were formed during their stay at Milton College. The men of this claSs were strong factors in the reorganization of the l'M" Club which has now passed through nearly a year of prosperous work. Then, since the class has always possessed a tendency toward the unique, its members were predominant in the formation of three clubs which have been sources for greatly increased publicity to the college. First, in the winter of 1926, the Gotta Longa Haira Club was formed which gained wide-spread notoriety through the press and brought numerous favorable comments from the advocates of long tresses throughout the country. Second, in the fall of the present year, the Bachelor Club was originated with consequent notoriety and subsequent increase in the number of dates per member. The club proved the truth of the old saying, llWomen want that which they can't getll. Third, as a counterbalance against the effect of the bachelors, a rather unique club came into existence during the past winter, which included among its members those women whose matrimonial destinies have already been forecast, and which became known as the Ladies in Waiting Club. In this matter, the Class of ,27 has not only established a reputation for uniqueness, but has also succeded in living up to that reputation, through all the trials and tribulations of the past years, in a very creditable way. Page S ixty-xez'cu Class 0f 27 3QJIV$HAT shall one write about the passing of a class? Many classes have gone on just as the Class of ,27 is going, with backward glances. V V hearts divided between the 01d and the new. The great significance .. H of the occasion lies most completely in the minds of the immediate :3th members. In September, 1923, a class entered Milton College, which judging by mem- bers, would seem to reveal strength beyond realization. Yet we soon found the "mightierll Sophomores placing green caps on our heads at our own expense. Later, however, our wounded vanity was resuscitated when the Freshmen girls won the basketball t0urna111ent, when the Frosh debating team won a dual de- bate with Carroll College, and when seventeen 0f the class won places in the gynmasium exhibition. Our Sophomore year found us diminished to little over half our original number, thirty-eig'ht to be exact. Once more we relinquished the college-day victory. This year, Franklin Bentz received the Rolland Sayre award. Many members of the class were active in debating, basketball, tennis, track and foot- ball, as well as in the lyceums and the Christian Organizations. The Junior year found'l27 going strong. The true spirit of the class was re- vealed in the unique banquet given for the Seniors. In this year, Vivian Bunker received first place in the Uratorical Contest. The crowning feature of the whole year was the engaging battle for the caps and gowns. Never were joy and woe s0 interwoven! This is our Senior year. lYe can not help but look back. The future bids us to enter whole-heartedly into the things of the present. A series of our activities has been stated, yet who but ourselves can know our thoughts? Who but ourselves could know them? They are akin to those sentiments of the past, it is true, but they can only be our own. Now we are being graduated, 21 class of twenty-three members, a very small percentage of the original class. Five or six members were lost in the matrimon- ial sea, where more will soon follow. Others were possessed of great ambitions and left for universities. Some were forced to fall back into the oncoming classes. But, in spite of these losses those of us who are nearing the finish of our college life are proud of our achievements as members of the Class of ,27. Often, we fear that we have not worn the cloak of dignity in accordance with the greatest of scholars, but at least we are a class which believes in our Alma Mater and we honestly hope that in the future the ideals set before us by Milton College will guide us as they have for the past four years. Out from the East, the West, the North, the South the Class of 1927 has come and now to these distant points its members will again return to accept and cherish what- ever lot the world may hold in store. Who can say What the future will bring forth? D. B.

Page Sm'mly nior -- ' "3 "$ Class of ,28 magsLD Man Time is ticking off the hours! Three short years ago sixty- four of us entered school as Freshmen who were scared almost to death. wYe could not find our classrooms: we were afraid to draw "me; our breath. But somehow we became acquainted and the time has seemed very hrlef, although 1t has been packed full of good tunes and a reasonable amount of study. wVe are very intelliO'ent beings, for unlike most people, we are able to re- member way back when we were little more than a week old, to the time when we met and defeated the all-important members of the Sophomore Class. It was then that we first manifested our ability to hold our own in all college activities, both curricular and extra-curricular. Football, basketball, debating and track gained many loyal supporters from anmng our numbers. Maurice Sayre as president, Marion W'ahl as Vice-president, Georgia Sutton as secretary, and Edward Buyalna as treasurer were elected to attend to the business of the class during the First year of our existence at Milton College. When we returned to the college on the hill in the fall of ,25, our strength was considerably decreased in quantity, but not in quality. Although we lost to the incoming Freshmen in the class scrap we were never able to account for it. It certainly waslft intentional on our part. Again, the usual activities of the college called for our support. and never loathe to be where duty or pleasure demanded, we managed to get in a number of ngood licksH for the Orange and Black. We carried off the Inter-class Basketball honors, besides making our presence felt in many other endeavors. We had now reached the point in our development where we were allowed to try our powers at oratory, and there was much rejoicing when honors for second places from the Philos, the Milton- ians, and the Idunas were awarded to members of our Class. T0 guide us through the year of work and good times we chose Clare Marquette, Virginia thittlesey, Iras Remer, and Maurice Sayre to act as our mediators in the respective positions of president, Vice-president, secretary and treasurer. It is now 1926-1927 and we still have over a year to wander along the course of OUT college days before we will be duly graduated from the halls of 0111' Alma Mater into the halls of fame. In order that we might get a good start on the third lap of our college journey, the members of the class met on the shores of Bowers Lake last fall for a big feed and to elect class officers. The results of the election declared Richard Wells president, Thelma Pedersen vice-president, Dorothy YX'hitford secretary, and W'alter XVoodin treasurer. May we ever in the future as we have in the past, be loyal and true to the Brown and the Blue, and t0 the college that we call our own. M. C.

Page S eventy-seven Class of ,29 59m3llli Class of 129 has, thus far, especially distinguished itself along two lines. athletics and the number enrolled. Its first appearance T seemed a forewarning of the spirit it would show, for the contests $m$ at Charley Hluti were concluded with the score standing live for the Freshmen and two for the Sophomores. Again, in its second year at Koshkonong 129, still holding to its athletic standard, was victorious and forced the Frosh to don green head-gear. The members of the LlZlSS further showed their superiority over the athletes of other classes when the Class of 129 took both the indoor and outdoor track meets in 1926 in which the . men eompetetl. The girls of this Class won first place in the indoor girlsl meet and further laurels were added to the wreath when the girls took first and the men second in the annual basketball tourna- ment. But inter-class contests have not been the only means by which the class has shown its athletic arlrility, for, of the twenty-tive men who were out for football in 1925, eleven were 'Freshmen, while of the twenty-four in 1926, thir- teen were from this class. The personnel of other teams representing the col- lege during the past two years included similarly large numbers of 129ers among that ranks. The second and third years of college are generally considered to he the elimination periods, but 129 has lost comparatively few. Of the tifty-six who enrolled as Freshmen, only seven withdrew before the year was concluded, and all but seven who finished the year returned for the second year, bringing with them eight new recruits. After the election of officers in the first year at Milton, in which Kenneth W'esthy was elected president, Ethlyn Sayre vice-president, Stuart Shadel secre- tary, and Eunice Thomas treasurer, the class held the traditional pienie-snpper at Storrs Lake. Twice during the first year the class met with the Sophomores in social functions. Once, early in the year, 128 entertained 129 and toward spring the Frosh staged an indoor track meet in honor of their elder college- mates. For the year 1926-27, Laurence Bevens was chosen president, Eunice Thomas vice-president, and Wilma Hall seeretary-treasurer. This year, also, was enlivened by a number of unique class functions. ttBe we Freshmen, Sophs, Juniors or Seniors so proud, Whether singly or doubly or yet in a crowd, Welll root for the college; well each stand in line, VVelre all for Dear Milton, we of old tw'enty-nine."

Page Eighty Class of ,30 $5ME$UR class, the class of 1930, will have the tlistinctirm of being the First 0 group of students to graduate from the cullege 0n the hill in the third decade of the twentieth century. But that distinction alone ewe: will by no means suffice from the point of view of honors. We are determined to prove our worth as loyal Milton students, by encountering successfully the problems Which confront us, and by entering,r whole-heartedly into all college activities; thus to make a cmnmendzthle record in schnlarship, athletics, forensics, music, and good spnrtmanship. From the very start of our college days we have been a hnsiness-like group. Our class officers were elected prmnptly and with wise judgment. Since our president, Alonzo Davis, was obliged to leave college in December, our ViCB-DTCS" ident, Elston Loofboro, was the choice of the class for his successor. The other officers, who during the first year of our college life have worked admirably with the president to promote Freshmen interests, are Dorothy llurtliek as vice: president, Bernice Maxson as secretary, and Hugh Stewart as treasurer. Our class has been active in the social line. Although the highly superior Sophomores defeated us in the class games last fall, we believe that it is safe to say that every Fresh is secretly proud of the little green cap which is in his possession. We have turned out in large numbers to the Various receptions, inter-elass parties, ztll-college socials, lyeeuin programs, and other college func- tions and activities. XVe have been well represented in athletics, music, Y. M. and Y. XV. work, and in debating. The Green Issue of the College Review appeared on time and in good con- dition, thanks to the class editor, Elston Loofhoro, and his able corps of helpers. The Fresh Wiener roast at Storrs Lake, early in October, was a huge and tlhowling" success, according to those who happened to he in town when we returned and snake-daneed down Main Street. It is the purpose of the Clasis 0f 30 to reveal during the four years of e019 lege activities that loyalty and support for the traditions and colors of Milton College which have long since been born in the heart of each member.

The new girls of 1925-26 were entertained at a banquet in the Iduna room where they were painlessly grafted to the Family Tree of Idun. This fall the new girls met at Professor Stringeris on the night of November seventeenth, to enjoy the first course of a charming progressive japanese dinner party, followed by a short program. The last number on a program, varied and unique, was a japanese play, MThe Flower of Yeddo," given in a Japanese garden which was once the Iduna room. Miss Mabel Maxson deserves much praise for the success of this and several other plays which have been given in lyceum dur- ing the past two years. Idun, too, is rightly proud of her orators. Vivian Bunker receix'ezl hrst place among the women in the inter-lyceum contest. To add to the list of achievements, the palace of Idun, which was hecmning a very shabby dwelling for so noted a periun, has undergone a complete reno- vation which will greatly transform its appearance. In the future Idnnas need not be ashamed to entertain friends from far and near, who will come to the shrine of Idun to pay tribute to that gracious Goddess. M. R. 28 Page Ninety $13 Miltonian L?

Perhaps the most important thing accomplished during the year of 1925-26 was the renovating of the Oro room. A committee of three men with Wilbur Glover, as chairman, 1Yi11is Van Horn, and Clare Marquette, was appointed to attend to the matter, and it functioned in a very satisfactory way. - Another Om event of this year was the annual banquet. Mr. Ezra Vincent was toastmaster at this event, and the affair was in consequence, a great success. The regular Om string quartette was a trio, in 1925-26 due to the absence of Orville Keesey. The members were Everett Van Horn, Paul Ewing, and Willis Van Horn. Several new precedents were set during the year of 1926-27. Among these was the 0m Stag. This event was in the form of a general get-together. Thc lyceum felt that it was appropriate to have an affair of this sort, to be in the spirit of the Homecoming staged by the College. The official food was cider and doughnuts. Great quantities of these foodstuffs were consumed, after which a program was presented by the active and also the 01d members. It is planned to make this Stag party an institution in the Lyceum. On November 27, 1926, the annual banquet was held. Mr. Emil Samuelson acted as toastmaster. and he had arranged a varied and interesting program. This year, the banquet was held in the parlors 0f the Milton Congregational Chutch. Many who attended pronounced it the best ever. Much credit is due to Laurence Maris, who was the Chairman of the general committee. In spite of the fact that the lyceum lost many members through graduation, the remaining members were able to enroll enough of the new men in college, to more than make up for the loss. The lyceum is going strong, and is looking forward to bigger and better years. Page Ninety-eight 3 EQlJPnilomathianl?

Page One Hundred Philomathean leEQlgp-DWIRED with the prevailing Phllo pep and spirit, the society started a very successful year in the fall of 1925. At early meetings of this F period, twelve new names were added to the roll thus increasing ems; the number and efficiency of the group. The annual Philo Oyster Feed under the directorship of G. K. Hemphill, was held November fourteenth. At this memorable feed a record was broken and a new one established when G. 1?. Burdick ate one hundred raw oysters at one sitting. The Philos made an enviable showing in debating during the year, placing six out of eight men on the Varsity team. Again during the first semester the Philos gained prominence when A. If. Whitford represented the College in the State Oratorical Contest. The event of the year, the Philo Masque, was held in all its pomp and splendor in the gymnasium on January twenty-eighth. Much of the success of the affair was due to the efforts of R. P. Winch who was chairman of the Masque Committee. At the beginning of the 1926-27 school year twelve members were secured from the cohorts of the Frosh to fill the places of those members lost through graduation. Due to the presence of many alumni, who had come to the Home- coming game played the previous day, the oyster feed was one of the most suc- cessful of all time. Maurice Sayre had charge of the affair. Again, as in the previous year the Philos held predominance on the debating teams. Five out of six of the Varsity men were Philos and half of the Frosh team were allied with the society. Early in the semester the Philos organized an orchestra of four pieces which gained considerable popularity among the stu- dents as well as the townspeople. Another successful Masque was held on February third. P. M. Loofboro had charge of the arrangements for this well attended affair. Another fact illustrating the ability of the Philos in the musical sphere, was presented when twelve out of twenty members on the 1926-27 Glee Club were Philos. During the flrst semester the average attendance at the meetings super- seded that of preceding semesters by a good margin, evidencing the fact that the Philos still continued to maintain interest through their good spirit and the quality of the entertainment afforded at the weekly meetings. Thus the Philo group still possess the long-existing standard of good will and enthusiasm, sustained by its host of active student members and loyal alumni. The slogan, ttOnce a Philo, Always a Philof still has the same inter- pretation, binding the Philomathean Society into a powerful active unit. May the Philos always retain their enviable standard of achievement! L. J. R. 27 Page One Hundred Two School of Music Graduates There are perhaps a few students who remember the days when the studioH did not exist. Now it is one of the greatest centers of activity. The School of Music has developed steadily, until now it has equal rank with the other de- partments of the college. College credits are granted for work done in music and this arrangement makes it possible for more college students to take advantage of the opportunity to study music in connection with their regular work. One graduating from Milton may take his major in music. Require ments for a major in music are eighteen hours of theoretical music. ten hours of applied music of an advanced grade, and a thesis which includes an original composition. In the year 1926, there was hut one graduate from the Music department, Elvabelle Clement. Miss Clement was unique in her position, for aside from graduatingr from the college, she received diplonms in both the departments of Voice and Piano. This was all completed in the regular four year College course, This year there are three graduates from the School of Music, one in Piano and tWo in Violin. Miss Ruth Paul. who is graduating this spring: from High School. will receive a diploma as a graduate of the T'TZI'HU course. Miss Virginia XVIIittlesey. a junior in the college. and Miss Lilian Ullhcmck. 21 former student here will both giaduute in Violin this year. There have been no students thus far who have majored in music, but there are those who plan to do so in the near future, so that the new arrangement seems to be proving its worth.

Seldom is there a small college with such large O and diversilietl musical activities as are found at Milton. As lllato said, llMusic is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings same to the wind, flight to the imagination, charm to sadness, gayety and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful? One of the major musical organizations found at Milton is the College Glee Club. This Club is a band of twenty young men whose business it is to entertain, and they seem to know their business. The 1926 season was as successful as any season of the Club, both from a financial and artistic point of view. In spite of the fact that several of the best singers were lost by graduation, the director, Professor Stringer, was able to train the new men so that the program given was as good or better than those of previous years. The Glee Club began its tour by giving a few local concerts and then started on a three weeks, trip through Wisconsin and Illinois. A radio concert was broadcast from station VVHT in Chicago and on the next clay another was broadcast from W'LS. These were both noonday concerts. Friends from all parts of the country listened in and the Club received many notes of congratulation and praise. The home concert was given in the college gymnasium before an audience of about seven hundred people. 1927 TOUR The 1927 Glee Club consisted of a majority of new men, there being twelve of the latter and nine old members. In spite of this fact the Club was as successful this season as in previous years. The new men seemed to get into the spirit of the work of the club and the usual good program was presented. which was proclaimed by critics to be better than the one presented last year. K. L. VVestby, a sophomore, developed into a splendid baritone soloist, amply tilling the vacancy left by H. R. Sheard, who was so well known among the Glee Club fans. . The itinerary was not as extensive as the one given last year, but it was fully as successful. Two radio concerts were given again this year, one from W'MAQ, and the other from VVHT. The Club was received at Battle Creek as enthusiastically as usual, and much credit is due the Milton Club at Battle Creek, for their whole-hearted support. The home concert was given April 5 before a very large audience. 1927 ITINERARY Hebron . . . Feb. Dinner of Milton Friends . Mar. Ft. Atkinson . . . Mar. . Battle Creek, Mich. . . Mar. Monroe . . .

Choral Union An event of musical interest and importance to Milton and the surrounding communities is the annual Choral Union Concert which is given in December. The organization which is composed of college students and others from Milton and nearby towns, has been fortunate to be able to bring to Milton soloists of such merit as B.

The new Cabinet for 1925-26, under the able leadership of Merton Sayre. began their yearls activities by arranging the annual retreat, held at Lake Koshkonong, April seventeenth and eighteenth. 1"1tofessor Stringer led the evening meeting, taking for his subject, "And this is life eternal; that they might know Thee, the only true God, and jesus whom Thou hast sent." Mr. P. ll. McKee, State Student Secretary, was also piesent and gave inspirational talks to the thirty five who attended. Ten Milton men were fortunate to attend the Lake trieneva Student Conference. lChner Alters, Norman Buending, George Burdick, Leland Hulett, Raymond Root. Merton Sayre, Tel Stillman. Richard Wells, Laurence Maris and Albert Whitfotd upheld Milton's honor at the conference, and returned with glowing reports of the fellowship and inspiration of Geneva. The Association began its activities in the fall with much enthusiasm. The gym was the scene of the annual "stag" at which cider, apples, and doughnuts made their appeatanee as usual. There the new men were given an opportunity to become acquainted with the HY" work and its purposes. A second-hand book store, for the convenience of students. was set into oper- ation at the beginning of the term. The Association purchased a piano and two tables to further equip its room. On October sixth, the installation of the new members was conducted by State Student Secretary, ll. ll. McKee. He spoke on, uFour Essentials of College Life? Milton has been very fortunate in securing some very influential speakers during the past two years. Among these were: Miss lVlargaret Quayle. Associ- ate Director Of Student Friendship Fund; Mr. F. 0. Leiser, of the Madison City HYTT; Mr. Loy L. Long, t'aveling secretary of the Student Volunteer Movement; Mr. Guy V. Aldrich 0f the Milwaukee "Yl'; Professor Barbour 0f Ripon College; ilDad'y lilliot, known and loved by all tlY" men; and Sherwood Eddy, famous student of world conditions, who spoke on Russia and other world problems. Mr. Eddy,s address was a rare treat. The new Cabinet, with Ellis johanson as President, began to function in April, 1926. At this point, it was necessary to relieve Professor Stringer as Faculty Advisor and Professor L. C. Shaw was selected as his successor. On May seventh and eigth, the annual retreat was attended by thirty men. Meetings were led by Professor Stringer and Ray V. Sowers who spoke on the subject. "Is God Meeting the Demand 0f the Times?" In June, six men were able to he at Geneva: Akers, Coon, Johanson, Professor Shaw, Hatlestad, and Hoekstra. It is the sincere desire of every Cabinet member that the ttY" may have a helpful influence, and an ever increasing influence for good on the men of Milton College now and in years to come. E. J. '28 Page One H undred chcnwcn Girlsi Hiking Club Among the appreciative of the many beauty spots which the country around Milton offers to the seeker, and which are seldom discovered by riders in cars, are those girls who tramp the roads and unused hypaths. Each mile of adven- turing along wooded paths, each mile of toil over dusty stm-heated road or through deep mud, adds to that score of miles, which slowly mounting toward one hundred, will bring for the persevering- ones at the end of the year the brown and blue emblem, M. H. C.:VIilton Hiking Chth. Br-r-r-r! Four-fifteen! At the call of the insistent alarm clock, girls in various parts of Milton jump out of bed and don knickers, sweaters, and boots. Fifteen minutes later a group of shivering girls meet at the campus and set out through the dark streets tmvard tlanesville. The means of locomotion is not that Which is most often employed when going to that city. Instead of leaning back on the soft upholstery of a Ford and glidingr smoothly down the road, they are using a more natural method As they trip blithely along, mile after mile is ticked off by the trusty pedometer. How precious in after years will be those memories of clear cold dawn, 0r sunset over woods of Haming autumn colors: of the first Spring violets and early bird calls in the woods around Clear Lake; of wading in Otter Creek, Dr roasting weiners over a leaping tire on the shores of Big Pond. These are some of the experiences of those who answer the call of the open roadethe Hikers. 28 Page One Hundred Twenty Boarding Club 1926-27 C. W. BUENDING Prrsidml L. S.

The Milton College Review Following the predictions made in the last issue of the Milttm College Fides, the career of Charles Wileman ,20 as editor of the Review was very successful. During his regime the high standard established by other editors was main- tained, a few changes were made in the makeup and a g'tmd editorial policy was maintained. At the beginning of the second semester of the 1925-20 school year the editorship of the Review fell on the shoulders of Leman Ruml i27. W'ith the aid of a large and efficient staff, again the weekly had a successful year's eir- eulation. Towards the latter part, of this publication period, at the suggestion of a few of the subscribers, the make-up of the paper was changed several times to add variety. Also, as an experiment, editorial writing was abandoned for a time in favor of more news. This ptactiee did not seem to meet with approval so the experiment was given up as imp'actiial. This regime of pub- lication 0f the Review was also a success financially and the final payment was made on the existing debt. Again the paper Changed hands and the editorial staff 0f the previous editor was I'e-arranged with several new additions, and the business staff was entirely changed under the leadership of A. Prentice Kenyon 29. The tirst issues of the Review under the new liianagement were excellent and gave promise of a successful career. A , kw Page Our Hundred 'Iiwenty-fouyr '15s? a a . w. FRANKLIN H.

The prospects of a good team were only fair. R. A K. Meyer, captain of the 1924 squad, acted as coach of the line, at the same time holding down the position of right tackle. Meyer 3mg? played a steady game at this position during the season. Other veterans were Bentz at center, and Buending who held down the other tackle position in a way that won him commendation from the football critics. In a more or less well played game, the Milton team lost the first contest of the season to Reloit. Although this game was the first on the schedule of both schools, the men put up a good exhibition of football. Ruending and Bentz were the outstanding men for the Milton eleven. The fast traveling and hard hitting Carroll gridders were the next outfit attacked by the Miltonites. After a hard tussle, the Pioneers emerged with a victory, the score being 34-0. Again Buending and Bentz held their own against the terrific onslaught of the Carroll backs. The next game with De Kalb Normal, was not so one-sided. The contest was staged in a downpour of rain, which did not add materially to the conditions for playing. The two teams were evenly matched, both in weight and playing ability. Early in the game, the enemy scored on a fluke, and the local men could not overcome the lead, although they did succeed in scoring a touchhack. The score was 7-2. The Milton Eleven annexed its hrst victory of the season when it triumphed over the Wisconsin School of Mines of Plattex'ille. Milton was especially suc-' cessful in the use of forward passes, and it was by this method that both of the two touchdowns were made. Shadel, DeLong and Bienfang starred for Milton, while Connell and Clouser showed promise. The annual battle with Northwestern College of XVatertown, was the scene of the first homecoming that Milton College ever had. In an hour replete with thrills, this game was staged before a large crowd. The team played like a well oiled machine and as a result was the victor 12-6. The punting of Connell was an outstanding feature of this game, as well as the line bucks of Shadel, DeLong, and Clouser. 1925 Football Roster Reading from left to right: Upper row: Coach Crandall; Conners, tackle; Agnew, halfback; Bclland M, guard; Green, guard; Wixom M, tackle; G.

GAMES 1926 Since there were only six games in this season, and only six weeks to play them in, Coach Norris Rowbothani found it necessary to start practice a week or so earlier than usual. The prospects were brighter than they were for the previous year. Captain Bentz, a veteran of several years, was at the old center position, while Buending was at his regular post at tackle. Coach Rowbothaln spent the time in valuable instruction of some of the best plays used by the best known football teams in America. During the season, a recruit known as Charles Agnew, won the admiration of his mates by the way he piloted the eleven in the quarterback position. The first game was with Carroll College, and this outfit took the bacon, t0 the tune of 68-0. The Brown and Blue gridders showed their inexperience in this game, while the opponents showed remarkable form. Crabtree, a new man on the Milton eleven did good defensive work for his team. This game was the means of showing Coach what was wrong with his team, and he immediately set to work to straighten out the rough spots. In a rough game the men lost to Battle Creek College by a score of 3-0. Shadel was the outstanding man of the game. This lad caught the opening punt, and it looked as if he was going over for a touchdown, but he was downed 0n the fifty yard line. Numerous injuries were a feature of this game. ttSkinner" Meyer, fresh from Janesville High, and a good man on the offense, received a broken leg in the fray, while ltMike" Meyer sustained a sprained ankle. The head linesman also had a leg broken when two players ran over him. Certain fans of Milton had planned this year, on the Brown and Blue gridders breaking the jinx that always hangs around when they play White- water, but it was not done. However, the game was closely contested, and it was one of the best of the season. Whitford of Whitewater outpunted Shadel, Page One Hundred Thirtyetwo never-the-less the latter got off some good punts. In the first half, the opponents succeeded in making one touchdown, and the educated toe of Crabtree was in- strumental in making a held goal, as the ,period ended. The final score was 12-3. . The lirst victory of the season came when Milton rmnped over the Platte- ville School of Mines in a 17-0 score. The Milton aggregation played a different brand of hall than they did with Whitewater, and the results were very notice- able. An improved aerial attack was displayed, and this fact accounted for sev- eral of Miltonis touchdowns. Every man on the team fought with determination, but the outstanding ones were Buending, Shadel and DeLong. The defensive work of the team was greatly improved, Platteville only getting two first downs. Shadel and Buending were the stars in the next game, with Northwestern. This game was slow, and uninteresting, neither team showing much enthusiasm. Walsh got away once for a long run and touchdown, hut Northwestern won 21-7. The last game of the season, with Platteville Normal, was the main attrac- tion for the second annual Homecoming. This game, played before one of the largest crowds ever seen in Milton, was full of thrills and surprises. Milton emerged on the long end of a 29-6 score. It was undoubtedly the best game of the season. The team showed better form than they had at any time earlier in the year. Clouser scored two of the locals touchdowns. and Shade! carried the pig-skin over once. Mike Meyer pulled several long passes out of the air for consistent gains. Bevens, Heet full back, showed up well in open held running, and in line plunges. THE MEN Perhaps the most outstanding man in the last three years of football at Milton College is Franklin H. Bentz. Bentz has held down the center position with precision and consistency. His excellent traits in leadership won him the captain's berth during the season of 1926. C. W'. Bnending, captain elect of the 1927 season, has played football since he was large enough to grasp theiball in his hands, with the result that he has a knowledge of the game that niakes him hard to heat. Buendingis regular place is at tackle, although he has shown his ability at other positions. He tips the scales at one hundred and ninety and with this bulk he has torn many a gaping hole in the opposing line. L. M. Bevens is another outstanding man on the Milton squad. His reg- ular position is halfback, and he has achieved for himself no mean reputation in this place. As an open field runner he is unexeelled, and as for finding the holes in the opposing line, he is there with the goods. Much credit is due ttBevof, for he is responsible in a large part for the yardage gained by Milton. Page One Hundred Thirty-four FOOTBALL STARS H. E. DeLong is another man that has done good work in the backfield. DeLong is a versatile player and holds down the positions of fullback, half- back, or guard with equal ease. He is now a Sophomore and very bright prophecies have been made for his future in college football. Perhaps the greatest development in playing was shown by Charles Agnew. Starting the season as a comparatively green man, thharliell maae one of the best quarterbacks that Milton has had in years. His judgment and generalship won him the admiration of many. ' S. L. Shadel was Milton's triple threat man this year. Besides getting Off some long runs for constant gains, Shadel punted and passed in a way that netted much yardage for the locals. He is also a Sophomore, and will in all probability make a name for himself in his college career. Q. C. Crabtree, a new man in Milton, did some very good work in the position of tackle this year. He weighs an even two hundred pounds, and was able to open up some useful holes in the enemies, line. He was especially good on the defensive, being able to break up the best plays of the opponents.

Page One Hundred Thz'rty-s'ix 1926 Basketball 595VW$3HE 1926 basketball prospects were above the average. There was a fair number of men out for each position. Chadsey, Bentz, and I Shadel were each contesting for the keystone berth. Chadsey was a veteran of severaI years, as was Bentz. Shadel, a Freshman, was a lame: new man, but was a star in his Prep days. For forwards, Glover Mabson, Maris and OTConnor were the most promising men. MCNitt, an old man, DeLong, another star from Milton Union, Clouser, 0f the same school, and Spor- Ieder made up the candidates for the guard positions. This was an imposing ag- gregation, and constituted one of the best basketball squads that Milton had had in years 111 the first game of the season, which was played at home Coach Crandalhs proteges ran up a 23-12 score against Madison 4C College. Milton dropped a long shot soon after the starting whist1e, and by the method of free throws, ran . up a good score, before the Madison Quint could get a start. The home team was never in danger after this. The outstanding players were Mabson, Glover and Clouser. The next game was with the stromr Marquette outfit, and although the Brown and Blue put up a good so ap they lost 23-12. The game opened with a rush Milton scorin0 four points in as many minutes, but the spurt did not last 101111, and they did 1itt1e smrin0 aftel this In a game devoid of thrills, the undergraduates defeated the Alumni by a score of 34-17. This contest was slow, and lousely played. Oakley starred for the grads, while for the college Shadel was high point getter, with a total of six baskets. The team lacked teamwork, and there was little evidence of nil 1111 the basketball machine. In the game with Carroll, Crandalbs men started the game with a great dis- play of enthusiasm, which they kept throughnut the game. The scure, which was 30-15, does not indicate the kind of a game p1ayed. The local men put up a good scrap, and their Opponents had to tight for every point they won. A two day trip into the northern part of XViseonsin resulted in two defeats at the hands of speedier and more experienced opponents Lawrence defeated Milton by a score of 34 to 23, and the next nivht the Hashy Oshkosh Normal outfit won by a sane of 41 to 23 led by the steady and heady Breise, the Lawrence quint had a decided edge on the Milton men, and was not in dangei of losing the contest at any time. The Oshkosh men were still a faster bunch than the Lawrence outfit, as the score indicates. 1926 Roster Reading from left to right: Tack r0w--N. A. Buending Mgr; Shadel. center.

Page One Hundred Thirty-cight The second home game of the season proved a Victory for the Brown and Blue. This game was with Platteviile Nm'tnal. Early in the game Glover and Mabson showed their ability by thrtm'inggr in a cunple of long shots. These two men were the Milton leaders throughout the game. in the last few minutes of play the enemy began a barrage nf basket sheeting that was only stopped by the whistle, the Final score beings; 23-22. In a fast but uneventful contest, Whitewater Nurman representatives handed a 9-6 defeat to the Miltunites. Both teams had a hard time locating the hoop, but as the score indicated the opponents found it more than the locals. During the game Miltonk teamwork was without reproach, although sluggish at times. The Crandalhnen were successful in getting the ball down the Hour to a shooting position, but from that point on the ball would not be lured through the hoop. In a fast and Closely contested game the Milton men added another victory to their list when they defeated the Milwaukee Normal team, 32-25. Milton started their scoringr early in the game. Miltonis next game was dropped to the crack Carroll team by a score of 31-16. Milton showed littie evidence that they were a basketball team. In a slow, uneventful contest the local men won from the Wisconsin School of Mines, from Platteville, t0 the tune of 21-13. Neither team had any exhibi- tion of teamwork, and there were no men that stood out from their fellows. In the last game of the season, the Milton qnint defeated their old rivals, Whitewater Normal, by a scure of 17-14. Milton carried the ball into the enemy's territory early in the game and kept it there for the must of the time. Glover was outstandingr man and high point getter in this tussle. Shadel also did stellar work at: the center position, shmwingr the best defensive Work of the season. Roster 1927 Reading left to right.

Page One Hundred Forty JaskmtBML "' H17 1927 Basketball KMWT THE close of the successful football season of 1926, basketball practice was started immediately. About twenty men reported for A practice, and among these was some very promising material. There were three veterans of the 1926 first team squad, Clouser, DeLong, ?Miei and Shadel. These men formed the neucleus of the team, and Coach Rowbotham built this years team around them. Sporleder, Hashy guard, Bentz, Buending, and Roberts were the other old men out. Roberts later developed into one of the most reliable forwards on the squad. Among the new men on the squad were Walsh, Wardingle, Bevens, Stewart, Chadsey, Agnew and 1Voodin, and they made up a group from which one might expect anything. The first game was with Marquette University on their Hoot, and resulted in a defeat, 33-10. The lineup was as follows: Roberts, Clouser and Sporleder, forwards; Bentz and Shadel, center; Burdick, Buending, Walsh and DeLong, guards. In the next game with DeKalb Normal, the locals were defeated by a score of 33-17. This contest was staged in Milton. The visitors got away to an early start and collected points with considerable ease during the first period. Spor- leder led the Milton attack with four baskets, while Clouser played a stellar game in the forward position. The next two games were played at Platteville. One was with the Platte- ville Normal which the Miltonites dropped, 28-20 and the other was with the Wisconsin School of Mines, and was won 28-19. In these games the guarding of Sporleder and DeLong featured. In the hrst game Captain Clouser showed himself worthy of his office by leading Miltonis scoring with six baskets. The Oshkosh Normal team was entertained in Milton, and that evening was turned back by a score of 26-24. This game was a thriller in every sense of the word. Milton played a hard consistent game, carrying the ball to the Visitors throughout the contest. Clouser played his usual good game accounting for six baskets. Buending also did good work. Coach Rowbotham took his Brown and Blue basketeers to DeKalb, for a return game with that outfit. Although the men did not bring back a victory, they had the consolation of knowing that they played a much better game than they did when DeKalb was in Milton. At this time the Milton squad suffered the loss of three of its best players. Captain Clouser left school to take up work at the University of Illinois, and this left the team without a hehnsnian. Shadel was also dropped from the team, when he became ineligible. Another good man was lost to the team, when Fay Chadsey died of diphtheria, a disease that he contracted while the squad was at Platteville. The loss of these men seemed to take the backbone from the team and they lost the next three games which were with Whitewater, 32-10, Platteville Miners, 34-22, and Northwestern, 29-18. However, in an exciting and thrilling contest, the Milton squad hung a defeat on'the Whitewater outfit by the close score of 27-26. The Milton team had undergone a complete reversal of form that was good to watch. In the last game of the season, the college team lost to the Northwestern College outfit by a score of 31-22. This game was good during the first half, but the Milton men did not get going in the last period. DeLong and Roberts starred for Milton. Page One Hundred Forty-two 1927 Basketball Summarized emam; records compiled by this department show several interestingr things concerning the scoring of individual players who represented I Milton during this season. 111 the first place, they show that W'. L. Roberts, playing his last season for the Brown and Blue, led his amass mates in the number of points garnered duringr the winter of play. uNielf deserves special credit for this, for besides being a splendid athlete, he is a student of no mean ability, his name appearing on the honor rolls regularly. The records also reveal that DeLong and Sporleder were tied for second place in the scoring,r honors, being only one point behind Roberts Sporleder obtained the largest number of field goals of any man on the Milton squad, but he did not make as many free throws. DeLong was the lirst in the number of points from the foul line. The season was started with Clottser and Shadel playing the forward berths, with Bentz at center, and DeLong and Sporleder as first string guards. Later, however, as Clouser left school. Shadel had been necessarily dropped from the squad, and Bentz and Walsh out due to illness, Coach Rowhotham shifted DeLong to forward, playing Roberts at the other forward position, in- serted R. M. Burdiek at center, and used Buending and Sporleder as the regular guard combination. This last arrangement played the last hve of the games. All of the twelve men who played in varsity basketball this season deserve considerable credit for hard work in bucking the stiff obstacles presented by the lack of experience of the 111ajority, and for trying. their best to bringr forth a winningr team to represent Milton College.

THE GAMES The girls1 basketball team opened the swason by handing a 26-15 defeat to the janesville Y. W. C. A. team. The whole game was closely contested, in spite of the fact that the score was one sided. The second half was a battle royal, with the opponents having more luck at basket shooting than the locals. In the second game of the season, the Co-eds were defeated by the Parker Pen outfit from Janesville. Both teams displayed a good tighting spirit during this game, but the Visitors had the edge on the home team. The game with the Union High School girls on their own floor proved a defeat for Milton. Sayre starred for the college, but when the Final whistle blew, the College was at the small end of a 15-11 score. In the first game with the High School, Milton was also defeated 8-7. In a game with the Janesville Y. W. C. A., the local team lost 6-5. This game was close and about the most hotly contested in the season. The locals opened up with a field goal on the start, but were unable to maintain the lead. Page One Hundred Forty-five 'Dasheffliau a $9.7. 1926-1927 Roster Reading: trum lclt tn right.

THE GAMES Only three games were scheduled this year, but the cagewmnen made 21 good showing in spite of this fact. Several veteran players were on the squad, among them were Iiunice Thomas, lithlyn Sayre, Helen Ring, Lura Burdick, Marjorie Johnson, and Iras Remer. With this formidable aggregation, the outlook for a good team was excellent. The first game was with the Parker Pen girls, which Milton won 27-13. Sayre was the outstanding player in the game and accounted for the must of Miltmfs goals. Then the Parker Pens turned the tables and won easily in the next game, 27-22. The former bested the cullege aggregation in nearly every phase of the game. For the college Rurdick was the high point getter, accounting for five baskets. 111 the next game, with the janesville Y. W. C. A., the Janesville women took the lead early in the game, and were never headed. Sayre did the heavy scoring for the college, getting five field tries and three from the foul line. Page Our Hundred Fnrly-xi.r 1926 Baseball $ME$EHEN in the Spring of ,26 the athletic council decided that baseball would he the major sport, the hats and balls were immediately dugr VV out, and practice was begun in earnest. Only three regular men were left from the pt'evious seasonelilesgard, Hulett, and Hutchins. mamas: Some of the more promising new men were Shadel, Comstock. DeLong, Mabson, Werfal, Clouser and Meyer. With so few of the old men out, most of the positions were open, and the team was at its best, a group of inexperienced players. There were seven games on the schedule, and some with teams who were rated as the best in the country. Later in the season, Chadsey, veteran pitcher of Milton, added materially t0 the hopes of the Milton squad. Hutchins worked throughout the season at his old place behind the hat, and was a very dependable man in this position. In the first game 0f the season with Mt. Morris College at Mt. Morris, 111.. the men lost 874. The held was in bad conditiOn due to excessive rains. Milton was ahead, up until the eighth inning, but the pitcher weakened, and the Opponents were able to score five times in two innings. The next week when the Mt. Morris outtit came to Milton for a return game, the home team succeeded in coming out ahead 9-7. Chadsey drew the mound assignment in this tilt, and pitched a nice game, but errors at his back, kept him in constant trouble. Hutchins stood out in batting ability, getting the runs across the plate. Werfal played a nice fielding game. In a game with Northwestern, 0f XVatertown, the locals were defeated by a score of 7r1. During this contest, Milton showed very little team work, and had the had luck to make many errurs when the bases were more densely populated. Only one importnnity to score presented itself, and the locals took advantage of it. The visitors hit the hall at will. and scored nearly as often. Coach Crandall's men journeyed to De Kalb, HL, and were defeated ll-e-l. The Normalites seemed tu hit anything that Comstock 0r Chadsey had to offer, and as a result the Milton tielders were doing a Marathon most of the time. De Kath scored in the first inning, and Milton retaliated by scoring in the first of the second. The return game with Northwestern was much the same as the game at Milton. This game was a rant. nothing less. The opponents pitcher held the Milton nine down to scattered hits, and the lone run of the locals was made on a Huke. The last game of the season was with the Alumni. The latter team made up of former Milton stars was easily defeated by the Varsity. The Grads used three pitchers, but were unable to stop the hard-hitting under-Grads. Milton's line-up was altogether different in this game than it had been in the previous games, and the team seemed to work better under this arrangement. 1926 Baseball Roster Reading from left to right: Rack Row: Coach Crandall; Clauser M; DeLong M; Hulett M; ,lnhanson M; C.

As soon as weather permitted the F squad began practice on the outside courts. The only old players in school were R. L. Burdiek and IV. H. Glover. These two have $113592 played on the tennis squad for several years. Among the new men were XYestby and Bienfang, stars from Fort Atkinson. Roger Burdick also showed considerable promise. An interesting feature of the tennis department of Athletics at Milton was the Tennis Club. This was an organization of people interested in the game, and who were anxious to see it promoted at Milton. The Club held a tournament in the spring, and gave awards to the winners. This year W. H. Glover won the men's single matches, and Virginia XVhittlesey won the wonieifs award. The Milton men lost to Lawrence College in the lirst match of the season. The youngsters were simply outclassed. Both tilover and Burdick forced their opponents to the three sets, while W'estby and liienfang did not seem to get started. In the doubles, Bienfang and Hurdick played a Marathon with johnson and Henke of Lawrence, the match going the limit, taking twenty- four games to settle the last set. In a practice tilt with the Watertown Tennis Club, the Milton men lost 5H1. W'estby put up a stiff scrap against Hub and it took three sets to decide matters. In the State Consolation Tourney, XVestby won tirst, defeating Glover in the singles matches. In the tirst round of the regular singles match, Glover and Westby were eliminated by the crack Marquette men. A week later, the strong Marquette team came here and defeated the locals easily 5H2. In a good display of form, lVestby antl Glover were able to win from Chapman and Leichfnss, in the doubles. XVestby also won his singles match. 1927 TENNIS PROSPECTS The tennis outlook for the varsity squad is exceptionally bright this season. tilox'er is the only man lost to the team, and it is the belief that Milton's tennis reputation will be upheld in great shape. The three men left from last yearls squad are Wcstby, Rienfang- and R. M. Rttrclick. Of these three, perhaps W'estby is the outstanding player. This lad has played tennis ever since he was large enough to hold a raequet, and bids fair to make a name for himself this year. R. M. Burdick, brother of R. L. Bnrdick, who needs no introduction to Milton Tennis fans, is also a promising man. He was No. 2 man on the squad last year ranking second to Captain Gloven 0. IE. Rienfang', the remaining member of last years team, is a steady con- sistent player, and will probably make the team again this year. Several matches have been scheduled for this season, among them a dual affair with Lawrence College. The tirst one will be played in Appleton, and the second at Milton. Another match is with Marquette, of Milwaukee. Mar- quettels team usually wins the State Title. Other matches will probably be scheduled after this writing. Page One Hundred Fffty-onc 0U K Cl-lili ICR L likl l ISRS 1927 Track 111 direct reversal to their last years program, the Athletic council decided in favor of track rather than baseball as being the major sport at Milton College 'in the spring of 1927. It seems that track is gradually displacing baseball in all of the smaller colleges in this state, and Milton College is one of the last colleges to follow this program. Milton changed, due to the reason that it has been almost impossible to schedule enough baseball games for a paying season. The Coach found that there was no dearth of track material. Among the men who turned out for the team at litst were DeLong, former champion shot-putter, and broad jumper in his high school days; B. .K. Wells, crack sprinter from the local high school; L. M. Bevens, also a sprinter; W. L. Roberts, who excelled in the javelin and discus throw; and H. C. Burdick, a man with a reputation in distance running. These men were members of some of the best High School track teams ever seen in VViscousin, and made up about the best aggregation that ever represented Milton College in track.

Not only did the twu teams shape up well. but the largest schedule in many years i'zts arranged The schedule was heavy in point of numbers, and the men met stronger t1znns than ever before. The question debated this year was: Resnlved. that the essential features of the MeNzti'y-llangen hill should he enacted intu law. All debates but one, the one with Marquette held last December on the subject of light wines 21nd beer, were on this subject.

The schedule for the year included the follmving': Dual debates: XVhitewzlter Normal, Carroll College. Sinfrle debates: Helnit Northland tinstax'us- Vinlphus Oshkosh Nurnial DesMoiiies Unitersity. lxipon College, zmdt Marquette Unitersity, most of which were held in high schools Most of the debates were of the open-foruni, nu-tlecision type, although a few of them were decision debates.

It is somewhat iii a makeshift, for its scope is merely one dual debate, and its purpose largely to develop a few debaters for the more im- portant varsity teams the next year. However that may he, the men who make the team show considerable interest in debuting. The interest this year was better than it has been for some time. In fact more men tried out for the team than could make it. Usually it is necessary to go nut Hin the hy-ways and make them come in.U The personnel nf the two teams is as follows: szirmative: D. C. Lynn, K. B. Davis, and XV. T. Crandall. Negative: C. TY. Yates, H. N. Clarke. and R. 5. Watson. The traditional Milton-Czirroll dual debate was changed to a triangle to include Beloit. Roscoe Lawrence took the place of C. W. Yates who was forced to leave school at the end of the flrst semester. The question debated was one which interested a great many people since it concerned a man who was so much in the public eye at that time. It was: Re solved, that Mussolini is 21 dangerous factor in international relations. The Freshman material was good this year, and the hopes of having a good Freshman team were realized, leaving a group of men with some debating experience for next year. 0. T. Babcock, Coach.

Plumb, Salt Lake City, Utah, who gave the Cmnmencement address. Mr. Plumb is an engineer of the Salt Lake City Branch of the General Electric Company, and at Cmnmencement time the College conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Science. He, also. was accompanied by his wife. The other two present were President and Mrs. A. E. XVhitford, both of whom were graduates in the class of ,96. Of those who were absent. one, Belno Addison Brown, is dead. Channing A. Richardson is pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal Church of San Jose, California. Susan Frances Chase is a teacher in the Buffalo State Normal and also does considerable lecturing. Miss Adelaide Davis was unable to attend on account of the illness of her father. t The members of the class present at the reunion amused themselves with reminiscences and pleasant remembrances. The class breakfast was held at the TVhitford home at which time a song, the poem of which was written by Dr. Wells, was practised. It was sung later at the Alumni Association meeting. That was not their only part in the program however; they had a creditable part in the stunts. Thursday after Commencement they held their pieinc at Lake Geneva. This year the class of ,97 will he in prominence. The living members of this class are: ti. M. Burdick and Miss Cora Clarke, both of Milton; Mr. Herbert N. Wheeler of XVashington, D. C.; and Eli F. Loofboro of New Jersey. With these people coming for a reunion, and Mrs. Allison Burdick at the helm as President of the Alumni Association, the Alumni should play an important part in the Commencement exercises of 1927. Professor Albert Whitford His students are liable to think of Prof. A1. as he used to stand in the tireenman Room very tall and straight and watching every step of the proof in a proposition of geometry. He did not appear to be listening; he did not appear to be looking at the diagram, but he heard and saw everything, even the slightest error or deviation from strict accuracy. Accuracy and precision stand out as his dominant qualities in the class room. He insisted on accuracy and obtained results. He inspired confidence and yet no student ever ventured to tritie with him. He always maintained gravity and dignity without being sombre 0r moroseein fact, he had a keen sense of humor. He enjoyed a good joke and expected the class to laugh with him. Nevertheless, in his class, work always came first, but besides the definite work in hand students frequently received from him splendid bits of philosophy which he threw out as illustrations or comments, for Prof. Al. was indeed a philosopher.

If that is true, surely dramatics holds a close second, and the scope of her reputation is rapidly increasing with each presentation of $m$z the immortal Shakespearean plays. The tradition was begun with an informal reading of one of the plays at the home of Mrs. Daland in 1903. Since then a play has been given each year, alternating the tragedies and comedies, and the custom has flourished until it is now an annual event given under the auspices of the four lyceunis. The various managers are elected from and by the respective societies. The pre- sentation of a Shakespearean play annually has increased the scope of its attraction until it now includes many neighboring towns. llHamleW was wit- nessed by a group of about eight hundred people, many of whom were from Janesville, Fort Atkinson, Edgerton, and other nearby towns. This tradition cannot be spoken of without mentioning the name of Pro- fessor L. H. Stringer, who is, in a large part, responsible for its fame. Under his sincere enthusiasm and capable direction the plays have become, more than ever, a source of pride to the college. The Y. W. C. A. play is always a pleasant event in activities of the Dra- matic department, too. This year, the play was nLittle Womenh, and as a result of Professor Shawls skillful coaching and the hard work of the cast the audience saw before their eyes the dear old characters of Louisa Alcottls famous book. This is just a triHe of the commendable work being carried on in Dramatics by Milton College. Perhaps the increased endowment will bring with it more facilities for the work, and with them will come even greater achievement. ttLet those who are in favour with their stars, Of public honour and proud titles boast, Whilst I, whom fortune of such triumph bars, Unlook'd for joy in that I honour most.

You hold your heroes upon your shoul- awe; ders, place them where the world may see them. You place their deeds in record, make their memory inlperishable. You praise a man for the many foes he has killed, and laud him for the rescue of a comrade. HWhere have you placed the hearts of your heroes, or havenlt you placed them? Where have you placed their souls? Are all your heroes as you have been picturing them? The speaker stopped. Our little group re- mained still for a moment. We were astonished ' at Bob; it wasnlt his way of speaking. Yet. how could we know all the inner workings of the man? We were all business men with homes to maintain. All but one of us had been soldiers in the Civil War. It was Wednesday night at the usual hour of the Club. The room was silent. We could hear the dim roar of the traffic five stories beneath us and the ticking 0f the clock above the nre-place. A few of the cigars were held suspended in the air. ttThe heartls promptings are never hard to understand, but your heroesethey breathe too much of fame. While we have been sitting here talking of our heroes, I have been turning over in my mind the memory of a man in our company. Many years have gone by; I have heard nothing from him since the company dis- banded. It is a matter of confidence that holds him in my memory.

He was not like the average run of soldiers, but seemed more to have his place in the school room. He was never elo- quent on a subject; in fact he seemed to glory in his stock of short phrases. llis timidity, perhaps, was the cause of it. I took to him in such a strange way, I can't describe it. ,He used to like me pretty well, I thought, for he used to let me in on personal eonlidenees. He received letters regularly from home, some- times written in a childish hand, sometimes in an uncertain feminine hand. "One morning a letter came to him. It seemed to trouble him all day. At evening, during recreation hour I followed him to the top of a hill near Camp. We could look down on a deep valley below, across another encamp- ment. He had seated himself on a stone. There was a look of surprise came over his face at seeing me. I began to believe 1 was too pre- sumptuous in intruding on him this way. HlBobf he said, II was wishingr 1 had asked you to come along.

I looked at the man in amazement, feeling in my heart that he was joking with me, but the blue eyes before me were seriously questioning. " tYou don't mean you are in earnest?

Will you keep guard for me? tt lYesf I answered, knowing nothing else to say. HHe left after nightfall, on foot. That night was the longest night in my experience. I paced the paths he would have paced. I felt in my heart a kindred inquietude, my thoughts circling, unable to leave the slowly deepening trace in my memory. Every minute wove a long strong thread of understanding of that man that is still within me. Often Ilye sat and unwound that thread, rolling it up again to security within me. I realized then that all heroes are not born on the battlefield. HI kept guard all night, until three tfcloek the next afternoon. No one had come to relieve me. Then he came back.

At the tender age of seven Wmigi days, I attached myself to a con- venient rock and took up the duties of life in earnest. As a mere youngster, I showed signs of eventual immensity, and I did not "upset the done," for when I reached full grown oystere hood, I was truly a monster and even my LlHSCSt friends often mistook me for a Missis- sippi Clam. My great size did not inconven- ience me as, I am told. it does large men, for though their beds are so small as to cause discomfort, the oyster bed in which I lay was large enough for the whole family. And so I lived happily for a long, long time. And then, one day something tore me loose from my ancient moorings and dragged me up and up through the cool, green waters of the bay and out into the open sunshine. As I lay on the deck of the boat, surrounded by a group of wondering men, I heard the remark passed that in lViseousin there was an organ- ization called the Philomathean society which probably would be glad to have me. For sev- eral days after that all was darkness and a rumbling sound. Finally the cover was taken from my can, and I opened my pores to see a kindly face twhich I knew must belong to a Philoy looking down at me. From then on my life has been a nightmare with one night of thrills in each year of monotony. At the first a string was tied to me, and it has never been removed in the entire thirteen years I have been with the Philos. For three hundred and sixty-four days of each year I have stayed in a safe deposit box, all alone except for the string. But on a certain night in each year new Philos have been lined up before me, and I have been sent into their mouths to inspect the interior. Many times I have given myself up for lost haying missed my footing and slipped into a dark abyss, but every time a jerk on the stringr has brought me out into the daylight again. For thirteen years inspection of the interior has been my duty, and during that time 1 have seen a great many of the Freshmen caverns, some of which would have been interesting to Visit. For instance, I would have liked to visit that of a certain famous lthilo to see the last resting place of so many of my friends. Now I feel that my end is near. Last night I went down the longr trail again. Thirteen years is a loner time, but I still have my cross to bear, for part of the string is still with me.

Lika Goodbook $MHHIQ reader must have a very acute sense of history to enjoy the book I HThe Victory of Salamisll to the full, to understand the characters $mf and to understand the political, reli- gious, and social life of the Athenians. Davis has done exceedingly well, as the writer thinks he has done in other books that he has read, in describing the above mentioned facts. Truly he emulates thelheroes of the wars, but what would Greek history be without the great in- vasion of Xerxes, the battle of 'llhermopylae. Salamis? That is a question which cannot be answered in truth by any student of history; we can only speculate. Turn your thoughts back while the review- er endeavors to trace a few important episodes of the book, passing over the element of inter- est which connects the book, to that part which tells of the historical nature given us by Davis. The big athletic games are won by an Athenian and people are praisingr him. His father-in-law has an ode written to him; 'llhemistoeles and Cimon stop to praise their friend, yet speak not of the great worry which overhangs themethe dreaded Persian 1nva- sion. The market place rings with sounds of rejoicing, yet in the celebration is the persist- ing element of fear.

Then Uthe wooden wallll -let all Attica shut itself in the citadel and endure a siege. tNotice how Davis exelnplifles the Athenian spirit in this respect-identical with that of the an- cientsj What a glorious sight it must have been to stand on the market place and gaze towards the Acropolis which contained buildings that no modern has been able to copy! How won- derful it would be for us to hear the mighty prayers given there by the various men! tlAthena, Virgin, Queen, Deviser of VVlSClOlDW Give us to strive for the noblest, to speak wise- ly, to love one another. Give us prosperity, but not unto pride." That humble worship showed the true spirit of the Athenian, wealth but not unto pride, all for happiness. Perhaps the inspiration of the panorama of rocks, plains, sea, opened the way of glory to them einspiring only happiness and well doing. The battles that Davis describes are real- istic, in accordance with all history. Mardonius, the Persian mind, takes on a pleasing character and color that would place him on an equality with any Greek, for the culture of Persia was equivalent to that of Greece, each in its own rights. Who is to say otherwise? Unfortun- ately, we have nothing of the Persian side of life, only what we are able to grasp from Hero- dotus. But Davis shows us the pleasant side of the Persian as well as the hated side as ex- hibited in the Greek nature. lVonderful it must have been to witness the charge of the Athenians at Marathon and Plateaetheir heavy infantry bearing slowly on the Persian ranks. therever a hole was made by an arrow from a Persian bow, another Athenian filled the place for ltZeus and Athenafl The entire book is filled with such episodes as the writer has tried to picture. A critic would need pages to describe the valiant char- acter of Themistocles, Cimon, Xerxes, and Mardonius; and to review the great battle of Salamis which gave to the Greeks supremacy of the sea, and courage to face the next year of the war. It inspired men to write and to paint; it inspired a deeper view into religion. From the book the reader gains a keener in- sight into the history of the Greeksmwhich will live after the deeds of the Greeks have been shoved even farther into the background by time. :k :k 2k a Self is the origin and end of art, ,Tis but the symbol varies: each will tell His goal of mind, his plentitude of heart, What might befall him, or before befell, Some speak the naked words, HI love, I hate?

The author makes the journey in fulfillment of an un- writen Hindu law a law which requires all Hindus to return to the place of their birth at least once in twelve years. Together with his elder brother he goes to Benares, the Holi- est City of lntllZl. Tu one after another of .lndiais Holy Men in this city, Mukerji puts the burning questions of his soul. From Hen- ares the journey is continued to Calcutta, his birthplace. 0n the purtico of their home the members of the family tell their stories. The brother tells of the six long years, during which, a fugitive from justice, at the head of the militant nationalists, he labm's to perfect plans for a great revolution to free lntlia from the yoke of Great Britain. The bettzlyal of the plan to the British Government by a fol- lower ends the activity of the revolutionists, and they sign a truce of peace with the British government. A message from Jienares sum- mons Mukerji to the deathbed of his Master, interrupting the journey. Under the great tree before the temple the Holy Man gives his farewell to his disciples. The death of the Holy Man closes the bunk. Mukerji is 110 tym in this piece of writing. It is an exceedingly clever and well-written book. He carries the reader confidently, mas- terfully, smoothly, through the narrative with no haltingr or uncertain passages to mar its fine diction. At all times he writes easily with a vivid, flowing style. Mukerji is a poet as well, and it is Mukerji, the poet, expressing himself in the wealth of varied. beautiful, and striking metaphors which is one of the hooks impres- sive. qualities. I vas impressed by a certain similarity in the spirit which brings Mukerji back to lndia leltl the spirit in which Robert Browning, in far-off Italy penned these lovely lines: lth, to be in England Now that ApriVs there, And whnever wakes in England Sees. some morning, unaware, That the lmvest bmighs and the brushwood sheaf Round the elmetree bole are in tiny leaf, While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough ln lingland-now !" A wistful longing and an overpowering love have seized the heart of the wanderer. So it is that from the Erst glimpse of India, every familiar scene brings an exuberance and flush of joy to his soul. It breaks forth time and again in those colorful 111etaphors which seem to flow so easily from his pen in the beginning of the book. But after the brother has linished his story and together they have gone out into the new India, I think I feel a change. New In- dia does not call out his poetical nature. It seems fairly t0 dishearten him. As he becomes the more intimately acquainted with New India, satire takes the place of the metaphor. For crass materialism is slowly creeping into India, and he limls in India that which he had lied from in America. The climax comes, I think, when the author turns from the high caste linropeanizetl culture to tind conciliation in the pure Indian culture of the low caste. The close, or the book finds him a humbler and more tolerant man. He speaks of Renares, and his mother, sister, and brother out of a true love and full- ness 0f knowledge, giving advantages in inter- pretation which no Occidental caultl give. Surely he can lead us into new depths of un- derstanding and appreciation of India. With a skill which is vouch-safed few modern writ- ers, he reveals the quiet depth of beauty which marks the lives of those most dear to him. To close a review of the book about India without mentioning tihandi would be sheer folly. His name and spirit, as Mukerji shows us, seems to be a refrain running through all Indials life and thought and feeling. This is particularly true of the masses of low caste. My mind turns swiftly from the book and tihandi t0 the events of a momentous historical drama which is being enacted in Asia at the present time. The scenes, as they move before my mind's eye send a Chill of dread and appre- hension Poor Ghandi! $$?k$ VVhene'er a noble deed is wrought, VVhene're is spoken a noble thought, Our hearts, in glad surprise, T0 higher levels rise.

Of course the weather is to blame for it. The earth outside is beautiful: whole fleeces of gleaming snow swing softly in the arms of my hoary Ultl Austrian pines; the black limbs of the monarch oaks are etched with wide and narrow shadings of crystaline silver; the low roof of the English cottage across the way is a gttat mound of downy flakes; on any Christmas card, conventional- lZCtl in snow, you will find a repli 1a of our little 1Yisconsin village. Hut it is not cold; that is why I think of you. The smell not the feel of the tempera- ttue has started the association. Outside it smells just as it tlitl that llllltl Missouri eve- ning when I rode black Molly and you rode white Satan out to the little farm where you were born. I see it clearly, drowsing on the side of a half-clearetl hillside, the weather- beaten buildings mere splashes of soft pray set against an bebony batkg1ount1 of spluces. The low moon matle long inky shadows 011 the snow but I grow reminiscent, which is the privilege of only elderly persons like you1self I fear that l was fond of Missouri. My particular trouble tonight is a new thought, one of those rare things bout of my own experience, which are always such a de- light to meeantl a nuisance to my friends. It got a start several days ago, when I read that there are 110 more lands to dis- cover. The north pole has been plotted, and the business section surveyed. Thi- bet has held its opening and become a popular summer resort. The heart of the Great Dark Continent is aglow with street lights. The Amazon Indians are using their great water-power to run a high class picture show. Never again shall a lost man scramble with his tackle out an obscure, slippery brook. not stand, gun in hand, on the wrongy spur of some tiiighty mountain, and exclaim fervently, uFor the first time mine eyes behold this spot !" tSomehow that doesn't sound quite right, but that is the way I remember itl The whole tenor of the article made me feel bad. It seemed like a funeral knell, sounding the leSSe ing of a great a1t.. Several days later, as I sat in the library studying my Logic, and sor1owing between the p111a0raphs because never again can there be a pioneer, nor can I ever explore another lost b1ook, feeling that it is my own byi iight of dis- covery, I awoke to the realization that 1 had been staring for some time at a rather pretty girl who sat opposite me. My customary flood- ing sense of stupidity did not follow, as she had not seen me; for she in turn tnow this is the critical phenomena was staringe at a 111eaningless row of encyclopedias. I won- dered what she 'llhought : coveryfy tYou must know that I am being terribly exposed to the scientific spirit here in this school. It is a daily nuisance; besides, I feai that it is beginning to take. lt grieves me that such an absorbing and interesting,r idea must be called an hypothesis, and that 1 actual- ly arrived at it by the purely scientific way of intuitive imagination! You will find the proof in my logic book. It is especially galling when I think how my esteem in your family will be sadly dentedb You, long of the Tribe of the Adventurous Hearts, will, however, understand the 'alue of the thought, however irregularly I came about it. In a sense I suppose, it is merely a vulgat adjustment. Yet it is highly moral, for the glorious joy of discovery should not perish from the earth. If 111ighty hills and lost val- leys no longer give back the echo of the lone explorer's cry, the lights and shades, the re- cesses and caverns of the human heart an furnish variety and novelty enough for the most curious of us all. One advantage of the new field is that its best beauties will come to him who goes exploring alone. Each con- quest will be essentially his. Along the same trails, another explorer will hardly see the same vistas, not discover the same treasure. And surely the available "continentsH will be forever limitless. Do you see, john, how that the joy of life still remains for you and me? We may never again hunt for rare colutnbines iu the wooded recesses of the Continental Divide, nor scramble over the slithering shale above tim- berline, to catch the wary-tame ptarmigan; but all the elusive beauties of that land of discov- ery are potential in the human heart, and who knows but the rewards of equal effort may be greater? tIt is line to think that all life is and instantly I had the Vlivery man is a continent of tllSe Page One Hundred Eighty essentially beautiful. I have sometimes fan- cied that the prophet who wrote HGod is Lovell must have been a blind man, or he would have also known that God is Beauty. But that thought may be part of my environmental com- plex; for the Greek Idea, to which I am ex- posed each week is very attractive to me. Indeed, was it not the Quest of Beauty that lured you in those old vacation daysU Hlivery man is a continent of discovery." This is the hypothesis I propose, and I invite you to help me accumulate instances in its sup- port. You have such opportunity in your world-wide work with young people. Having in the past quite thoroughly explored the tlmisty caverns" of your versatile mind, I know that you will find the quest a diverting pursuit, a rest from your serious duties. Of course you will write me at once that someone else thought this thought many years ago, as you usually do; but I shall continue to pursue it joyfully, as I usually do. Think of the fun of grouping people by their geograph- ical ttopographicalm similarities! Why, right away I think of a little girl in the Iduna who is full of the very essence of a singing brook! I must find to put with her a quaken aspen, a dainty columbine, a placid lake, and a rough boulder or twoeand I shall have the utter peace of our hidden Fern Lake right here with me! Now isnt it going to be as exciting as real exploration? I hope you have had time to read this far, and that you will comment voluminously in my direction as soon as you have been able to see through this documentary evidence of my esoterism. tDonlt look it up; in this context it means densityJ My most sincere regards I send to your wife and family, with best Wishes for your mutual success and happiness. Yours truly, Lazy R bar M Locked In tContld from Page 176a that more than any other volume, unless it was the Bible, stimulated and started the Ren- aissance, Marco llolols tlTravelsW To the prison we are indebted for parts of the Bible, to the locked-in environment of the Italian cell we must give thanks for Boethus,s IIConso- latious of Philosophy,H translated by King Alfred into the Anglo-Saxon tongue. So a prison is a very valuable thing to progress and civilization. In its monotonous quiet and silence, there is nothing else for the prisoner to do but think. Undisturbed, he meditates; con- centration is easy. He thinks and imagines, and the result is a HPilgrinfs Progress? As others have thought before me when locked in, I set about to think up a Soph. Comp. essay. It was too good an opportunity to think to let it pass by. ItIf being locked in has produced fame and a memorial to literature for others, why wonlt it do the same for mePIl I reasoned.

Fresh- men are only supposed to write themes, but some Frosh tendencies are easily inherited by the Soph. But to return, these new, comfort- able prisons, with their ballrooms, parties, and radio entertainments destroy and remove the prime purpose and aim of the cell. There is no more Chance for meditation and contemplation alone; group action and think- ing replace it and that is about one question, IIlow are we going to get out?" No use for one to say that because he can,t and so he goes to work and thinks how when he was free he saw lambs a-growing on trees. Well, you may want to know 110w I got out. After a half an hour, I pushed the chicken wire off of a window by the door and reached down and opened the door and there was coming the old dame with a light. She said she was looking for an honest man, but a chicken-house is a funny place to look for one. Page One Hundred Eighty-om One of the Billion Wonders of Nature By Iva Robin $jSng121T XX 18 the 11115t time I 111111 exer visited the sea-shore. 1 had vague conceptions of what I would see, but my expectations were nothim1 compared to what I actually did see, when 1 really and truly stood on the beach 111111 watched the receding tide. It was simply marvelous! Then, I happened to glance down at my feet. There 1yin111 on the sands, left by the out 1111i11g1 tide, was 11 1111111velons array 01 1111111115, 111111 of queer, fantasti1 beautiful fo1ms. These forms Wthh were shells, were of several 11111115 517e5, 111111 11.111111151111151 enchanted. l stooped down 111111 1111111111 1111 11 handful at '1111- 1111111. 1 was amazed to 111111 how many, and yet how few in e1111111111ison to those on the 5111111, I was able to net in jn5t one handful I care- ful 1y exannned the 11111115 which I held in my 11111111, 111111 then turned my attention to other 1011115 lying on the sand. these are some 01 the things I noticed: 311mg.- There were exquisite shades of lavender, of pink, brown oranoe red, green, 111111 yellow. Just by 11111111e I 1111111e11 that there seemed to he 1111 absence of 11111115. 1 Wondered about this, but soon became so absorbed in the designs and 11111111 c111nhinations of the shells that I toront all about that one 11arti111111r color. 111111t queer animals must haxe 111e11 in these shells for suddenly I remembered that every sinole one of these beautiful things had at one time been the habitation of some particular form of the triashopod. They wele the mane 510115 in which little 111111111115 once lived, moved, and had their being. There were great big shells, which, though very handsome 11111116 me think of some good looking movie star, who despite his s1n111ng and s11111oth-1ookir1g exterior, possessed the treacherous 111111 of a villain. There were rough shells and smooth 5heHs, long ones and short ones, 1.111 ones and thin ones, shells with crinkly knobs and enrly queues. There were shells with turns upon turns resembling steep 5111 1111 stairways, and there were shells which made me think of snakes, so long and coiled were they in their crooked coils. I noticed one in particular which made me think of the pic- tures of the tower of Babel which I had seen way back in my childhood days. There were several forms which were 111111'ke1l with leopard spots. Some of these were almost round, without any spiral whorl; some were long and tapered down to 11 sharp point; while others possessed only the hotly whorl. Then there was one which I noticed that W115 beautifully marked in rich shades of 111111, brown, and cream richly harn1onized with a 1i11hter hand of 1ream pas5in11 1111111151 211111111111 the l1o11y and located near one end. Une shell I was particularly interested in because it 111111 a wide thick outer lip of orange. This W115 a couch shell. It had many whorls 111111 many, many lines of growth. It was 11 111111111115 blend" ing of white, lavender, 1111111, buff, and cream-A-a motley arrangement, in- deed. Searching still farther, I noticed a heauti- ful coral color embedded in the sand. Digging it out, it proved to be another king of shell. The smooth, coral mother-of-pearl 1ri1les11e111'e proved to he the inner lining of the shell. Turning it around, .I. noticed that it was very rough and calcareous in its nature. It almost made me think of 11 rough mass of cement which has hardened before it has had a chance to he moulded into any particular shape. At the end where the aperture began, I noticed that the siphonal process was Huted; it seemed to lie in folds almost like the ruffles to a lace 11:011ar. tlt is 11 curious fact, but these shells brought back to my mind a picture of one of my Jinglish instructors of college days, in 1111 her array of browns, buffs, tans, 111111 creams. The horizontal lines of the shells made me think of some of the dresses she used to wear, as did also the ruffles 111111 fohls in the e11g'e5 of the shellsj Quite unexpectedly I happened upon some white shells with many vertical ridges 111111 thick outer lip. I was quite interested in this form for it resembled the fancy 11111c1111oni which we are able to buy at the stores at home. There were several of these shells together when I found them, and they reminded me of a dish of this creamed 111aea11o11i. Page One Hundred ,Eighty-lwo My head was beginning to swim by this time. I was getting short of things to which I could relate all the little houses I had seen. I picked up another shell, and had to look twice before I was sure that my vision was not impaired. The shell was a cunning mixture of browns, buffs, and creams, but the lines of growth were what impressed me most. They were wide, parallel to the outer lip, and very sharp where they came to an edge at the top. The ridges or lines of growth formed wide bands, and in between these bands were fur- rowed lines in a deep depression. This was all on the body whorl. Another thing which inter- ested me and which I had not noticed in the other shells was the way these raised bands joined onto the visceral spiral. They seemed to melt into and to form a very smooth cone shaped plate which ended in the apex. In the region of the inner lip, the coloring was a rich molasses brown. The whole surface of the shell was highly polished. I found several forms which were very smooth and rounding, of almost the same shape, but of dierrent colors. These shells had wide bands of a much lighter shade than the predominating colors. One of these was a light shade of maple, and I could think of little else to which to compare it than maple nut ice cream. Foolish comparison, but suddenly I realized that I was getting hungry and thirsty. Then I remembered that I had been on the beach for hours, and that I had missed my lunch. Suddenly I looked up and noticed that the sun was getting low, and that the air was get- ting damp and chilly. The tide was coming in, and probably bringing with it another treasure store. I hurried to my hotel, deter- mined to come back in the morning and to con- tinue my observations of this wonderful natur- al collection. That night I could not help thinking about my experience of the afternoon, 'and wondering about it all. Before going to sleep, I wondered from what parts of the ocean all those shells could have come. Then I wished that I might be a mermaid and visit the bottom of the ocean, just to see what mar- velous sights are kept from the eyes of men, and perhaps to ucomb my streaming hairh with one of those horny shells with the long crooked arms. My thoughts reverted to the first and last stanzas of "The Chambered Nautilus" by a Holmes, and although it did not refer to this particular class of animals, I repeated the words to myself: mam "This is the ship of pearl, which, poet feign, Sails the unshadowed. main,- The venturous bark that Hings On the sweet summer wind its purpled wings In gulfs enchanted, where the Siren sings, And coral reefs lie bare, Where the cold sea-maids rise to sun their streaming hair. Its webs of living gauze no more unfurl; Wrecked is the ship of pearl! And every chambered cell, Where its dim dreaming life was wont to dwell, As the frail tenant shaped his growing shell, Before thee lies revealed,a Its rised ceiling rent its sunless crypt unsealed! Year after year beheld the silent toil That spread his lustrous coil; Still as the spiral grew, He left his past years for the new, , Stole with soft step its shining archway thru Built up its idle door Stretched in his last found home, and knew the old no more. Thanks for the heavenly message brought by thee, Child of the wandering sea, Cast from her lap, forlorn! From thy dead lips a clearer note is born Than ever Triton blew from wreathed horn! While on mine car it rings, Thru the deep caves of thought I hear a voice that sings:- uBuild thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons r011! Leave thy low-vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life,s unrest- ing sea?

Serve this red hot from the class room, the platter garnished with sprays of polished ph eases and tinted with extreme politeness and faultless English." Perhaps this is a bit exaggerated and yet is it not perhaps the way we are ltedueatet," and the way we accept it? We hear the alarm over the manufactured intelligence of the big University and rest secure in thevthoug'ht that the small college is exempt. But is it? Day after day of preparations to satisfy an exacting instructor. Is that not what it is? How many lessons do you prepare from the joy of preparingr them or because of the satis- faction you feel when they are prepared? Do you not repeatedly take courses because you feel that they will perhaps help in some mi- raculous way toward the end you imagine you want to reach, and before the course is finished the goal is changed? Others have done it and know the disgust that comes from the irony of it. The interest, the desire, the longing to know isn't there, and courses are chosen hit or miss to till up the required hours. And then comes the time, seldom to the Freshman or Sophomore but perhaps to his upper class friends, when there is suddenly awakened a desire to act, to do, to learn about some one thing. It may he the desire to penetrate the atom and even the electron, to project out into space 'among the heavenly bodies and watch their movement. or to take the pen and for the pure joy of writing portray the message of the in- nermost depths of the soul, or to build great buildings, or many other things Which mean action. The process of education is not the preparation of an assignment, it is doing what you want to do because you feel an unconquer- able desire to do it. A few days before you may have said in an awe-iuspiring,r voice, ltI spent four hours on that assigmueutf and yet today time passes unnoticed as you delve to the depth of the problem and revel in the complications to be straightened out. You use your every ele- ment of knowledge and ability and long,r for more as an aid to your problem. Your dreary hours in French seem well worth while as you tind yourself better able to understand one sen- tence of some author on the subject. The discouraging struggle with the required mathe- matics seems tremendously useful as the math- ematical significance of the problem comes home to you because of that very training. One gets the idea involved, and then of what value is it unless it can be portrayed to others? Then public speaking and orations seem like a blessing although they were certainly dis- guised. Perhaps this inspiration doesnt come while in college; perhaps it never comes at all and yet the man with the liberal arts college education is ready for it when it comes, regard- Page ,One Hundred. Eighfy-fom' less of the field in which it comes. When he gets his impelling motive he can specialize in a short time and be ready to do his life,s work. The foundation is yours to build; build it firmly that when you feel this urge you may be ready for it. And if you do feel this driving desire, then your intelligence and education are not purely mechanically manufactured proa ducts, and there is something to be said for modern educational systems after all. If. NOSIS STUFF 1 don't remember ever looking up the word tlantieipationd until just now. Of course I knew what it meant, even though I doubt whether I could have clearly explained it to someone who had no idea at all of its meaning. A consultation with Webster reveals the fact that uantieilmtion" means a Itforetaste" or toh horrorsU a ltpregustation." Maybe hels right, but I wonder if people really do think of it in such terms. I never thought much about the word or its meaning until one day last week my chum and I were taking an early morning hike. "Well? she said, Hthere are only five more days now till I go to Madison." ltIt seems to me," I observed, hthat you live by looking forward to things that are go- ing to happen? HItis the one way I have of making the time go fast. You do it, too. How long is it now till Thanksgiving? The matter was dropped, but I thought about it later in the day while I was in class. My interest was lagging and I found myself looking at my watch about every two minutes. Sure enough, I was anticipating the end of the hour and freedom. tltlor a little whilel Why are we so curious to get test papers back or to see our corrected themes? 1 sup- pose because we are anticipating good marks, or poor marks and are anxious to see if we prophecied correctly. Anticipation, in my mind, is a sensation of something coming. It may be pleasant, or de- cidedly not so We hold a little brown pill in our hands and look on it with distaste. and hate to have to take it, because we are anticipating how absolutely horrid it is going to be. VVhere- as, if we see candy or lemon pie or the like, the sensation is delightful. Sometimes 1 ac- tually shiver before I go outside, because Fm thinking about how cold it is going to be. Anticipation has to do largely with physi- cal states and conditions, such as I have men- tioned, but it also has bearing upon our mental reactions. We anticipate being very happy or sad. We look forward to doing certain things, because experience has taught us that it is go- ing to be pleasant. Likewise we put off doing other things, because we learned in the same way that its going to be not so much so. At any rate. I do believe that it is looking forward all the time to things that are going to happen that'keeps us doing the things that are not very interestingy or pleasant. I 0. PSHAW A lack of courtesy, of common tor uncom- monl politeness, among men is a too-Conspic- uous Characteristic of this campus. The little things, the things that gentlewomen and gen- tlemen notice, the all-important trivialities are. the things that are being neglected. One resents this weakness in the individ- ual, and yet the blame must not rest totally on him. One function of a college should be to supply the tinesse of manner which brands one as wellbred. Veneer, if you insist, but protec- tive of the real surface for all of that. In most schools fraternities supply this need, but in Milton where we have no fraternities, whose responsibility is it? It is not a question of ball room elegance; it is a problem, a deficiency which the college man is sure to feel when he meets his business associates. Is this a weak- ness of our school? Is Milton College pre- senting a four-square education? Or is it turn- ing out a queerly paradoxical group of uncouth culturals?

You perhaps already know that in real life Miss Twyn is none other than Miss Donna Brown, Operatic star and Em3$ Professor J. Fred Whitfordis star pupil. When the Fidcssa reporter called on Miss Brown he was greeted by her in her usual charming mannerethat charm which is so apparent in her unusual stories. Fidcssa read- ers will be pleased to learn that Miss Brown has signed a contract with our com- pany to write a series of short stories, most of which will appear in this maga- zine within the next twelve issues. uThe Philo Family Oysterll is indeed an unusual pen name, but those who have looked to scoff have returned to read. Nothing more need be said except the fact that the Philomatheans are proud to furnish a name for this enterpris- ing young writer who is privately known as Mr. Hugh Stewart. "0. Notso Long" tMr. Robert Dunbarl is the pride and "pet peevell 0f the critics. If that seems a paradoxical term, you have not yet read his article in this monthys Iiidvssu which he calls uLocked Inli. In that case you are doing yourself a great injustice. Turn back to it! The reporter found Miss Toiler in her lovely New England garden, where she says she spends a great deal of her leisure time when she can put away the typewriter and be Miss Lura Burdick. She told the reporter that she hopes Fidcssu subscribers enjoy reading her stories as much as she enjoys writing them. Yes, the reporter assured her that they do. Among our book reviewers we are proud to present to you Mr. I. Lika Good- hook and Instida Hats who, in private life, are respectively Mr. Clare Marquette and Mr. Lawrence Hatlestad. Their reviews are exceptionally unprejudiced and comprehensive. We hope to be able to give you more of their work later. HThe Countess de Milton" is the name Mrs. Rachel Doering has assumed for her productions appearing in the Fidcssa in a series beginning with this issue. We feel keenly Mrs. Doering,s rich, original thought in each of her articles, and We hope they will be a source of genuine pleasure to you. In the realm of science, there are able representatives, among whom, Miss Iva Robin tMiss Mildred Robbinsl stands well in the foreground. Besides Miss Robbinsi abundance of scientihc data her articles are colored with a pleasing style and rich vocabulary. In our editorial section this month we have contributions from Mr. E.

One remembers every little crack and dent in that homely stretch of walk stretching between the west door of the Science Hall and the rear steps of the Main Build- ing! ! ! ! How 01165 heart aches at the memory of the view from this popular prom- enadeethe windows of the Review Office and The Y.

And then, in case the promenader is headed in a different direction, the library windows on the left, and on the right, the ash pile which adds so much to the attractiveness of the campus. What memories crowd our minds at the sight of the race-track t0 the club? Many a race has been won by a neck,s length, and the only consolation offered to the loser has been the superb view from the windows of the boarding Club. How pleasant is the studio hill in winter, with its racing sleds manned by mannish c0- eds, and playful collegians. The long sweep of the track presents a far different View from the same place in the spring-time, when the same co-eds play hide-and-seek among the bushes 0n the campus. And then the joys of touring the long, sweeping curving drive clear up the steep hill, past the stately buildings, and around the im- aginary menis dormitory, and on around the dear old gym! ! Would that we might have a lake View right on the campus, instead of having to drive down to the postoffice to be on the shore of a delightful body of water in spring!

Page One Hundred Nincly-six FIDO FACULTY President M. M. Lanphere is a valuable member of the Fido faculty because upon him devolves the great responsibilty of engineering the College. Chief among his duties are official seore-keeper at basket ball games and personal supervisor of the college heating system. ' Much of the credit for Miltmfs athletic successes goes, without question, to the coach, Mr. Knutt Roekey. Mr. Rockey believes that psychology is as necessary as brute strength in all games. Furthermore the coach is a source of moral and spiritual inspiration 0n the campus. His chapel sermons always have a deep meaning, and he is absolutely opposed to the use of nicotine in any form. Jan and his assistant are shown in a characteristic pose in the above Fido foto. jan is as necessary to the institution as the bristles are to a broom, and water is to a showerhath. His assistant, to educate himself properly for the position, has been granted a leave of absence for graduate work at the U. of C. The golf department of this college is rapidly gaining popularity and a national recognition. The art of golf was a dead science in Milton until Mr. Billhorn was bequeathed a golf club by a rich uncle. As soon as he found a hall he became the Fido golf instructor. Mr. Billhorn found that by attaching a long rope to the ball before driving it was seldom lost. The students of the college are heavily indebted to the Board of Trustees. This board consists of the original directors of Sears and Blomuch corporation. These men have always had the welfare of the college at heart. Many a day they have met three times regularly.

Agent Page Two Hundred Two Fido Organizations The illustrations at the right and left are excellent representatives of the or- ganizations that have put the Fido campus in a class by itself; or in other words, as the clubs so the h e a r t 5, diamonds, and spades. Each organization has been originated for a definite purpose and claims a unique distinction. Consider for instance the Hikers Club. This organ- ization corresponds to the bicycle fraternities of other campuses, but it is far more efficient. The origi- nal purpose of the club was to boycott the shoemakersi trusts, but the recreational 'alues involved are among its chief assets. As inferred from the illustration, self-stzirters are taboo, and owners of Rolls-Ronmls 01' better are debarred from membership. The Cinema Club is nearly self-explanatory. Obviously the essentials for admittance into this club are modesty, gracefulness, and aesthetic taste. Mr. Burdock, its foundee and representative, is here demonstrating a pose befitting a college president or an educated ditch digger. The rest of the scenery is merely background. e Seldom in 21 college or university of any size whatever this side of 5000 R. C., can be found a novelty comparing with the M. C. Flea Club. It is the foremost Fido musical organization. In fact, several fidos can be detected among its members. This Club takes on its yearly tours, when its noise is no longer appreciated about the college, venturing at times in the direction of Lima City, or again as far as Harmony; but always back to Discord. Only recently an honorary sorority was established. The accumulation of dust, broken furniture, and ancient copies of llCollege Humorll and nTrue Stories" in the corridors and rooms of Ladies Hall threatened to make the place uninhabitable within a few years. Therefore the Pur-VVurkin-Girls Sor- ority was formed with its membership limited only to women of the Hall who could manipulate a broom and mop. At the present time all the girls of the lower right hand picture have qualified. By the law of averages and Dai'wiifs theory it is confidently expected that at least one more member may be added by 1930 Pugs Two Hundred lercv HOMSEY'S SWEET SHOP The House of Good Home Made Candies Home Cooking J anesville, Wis. 307 XV.

Page Two Hundred Eight Fido Athletics The status of athletics in Milton is somewhat singular but much more plural in comparison with other schools like the U. of W. and Janesville business college. Instead of developing a certain number of highly specialized and un- cducated athletes for the major sports of push-ball, hitch-hiking, and croquet. Take a slant at the tiddledewink team. In no other college will be found their equals in this branch of sport; and the reason for their superiority is simply the fact that they are biologically endowed with a capability for this game. The dog destroyers are another Shining example of this same principle. One indulges in this sport for the sheer joy of it. The two men in uniform happen to be the champions of this art, at the present time, but the name Ab VVhitford is always respectfully recalled whenever dog destroyers are mentioned. Perhaps the swallow game needs an explication. No, this istft the sport indulged in so consistently by students every morning, noon and evening follow- ing mastication. The man behind the batter must needs be a hypnotist. He attracts birds and insects toward himself while the man with the bat strikes at themt It really is not an inhumane game because Ralph never hit any birds and very few flies. The trainer and cheerleader are a couple of unnecessary evils forced on to the Fido campus by its athletics. They really arenit needed at all, but whoever heard of first-class teams in other colleges without them!

I donit much believe this first part 011 account of not being superstitious. But the second scene gets more 111 act1Lal cause it is an army camp with a bunch of men around and in comes Duncan,Malcol111, Donalbain,Le11nox tthis name infringes on a kind of soap so I hope they don t read thisi. Well these guys talked kinda funny for soldiers and I bet they haLln,t fought any oftener than Jack De111psey.VVell the jist of the thing was that there was a kind of a waI. Well it goes on to say a lot more about witches and I hadnt any more chance to know what it was all about than a Republican vote has of being counted in a Tammany e1ectio11.But about this time in comes Macbeth and Banquo and the witches tell Mac that he will be king. Well Mac dont believe them this being a Republic, but you can see he is impressed and kinda likes the idea. So he LleVelopes a grudge 011 Duncan which is king and keeps it hid for some ti111e.He plans some with Lady Mac and that night Mac went into the king 5 chamber and stuck a dagger into l1i111.It was kinda cowardly thing to do but stuff 1s pulleLl like that in Chicago right along so it is fashion- al1le.bAfte1' that MaLs. conscience bothered him some but the old lady Mac kept right after him and before he got through he had 111111"Lle1eLl more people than the hangman of Illinois bef01e Darrow got started there. They had a heLk of a time when they found the kinn had kicked the bucket but MaL got by big and only once got scared and started for Wis. so 5 he Lould get Blaine to pardon him out if he should get sent 1111 Well Mac got in the king s castle and kinda run things for a time and then took to killing people again and seeing ghosts and a few other things whiLh kinda kept theZS interest from dying. About then Lady Mac killed herself and it seemed about this time old Macduff got his ire up like the dander of an Irishman on account of Mac killing his wife and a few of his kids; so he brought out the army and navy after him but in the middle of the battle he got Mac in a corner and then it was that Mac said those wo1ds heard around the world: "Lay 011 Macduff and damit be him that first cries Ive had a plenty ,i 01' words to that effect. Well Mac never said that for Macduff cut his head off before he got a Chance and that spoiled the story for me 011 aCLount of the hero being dead so I quit right there and didn t read the last speech. The trouble with this story was that Macs plans rattled around worse than an idea in Congress and with the same chance of fulfillment. Page Two Hundred Twelve Superior Printing Insures Greater.

Page Two Hundred Fourteen Fido Literature The Cowls Analysis, Biologically and Psychologically lmaHE cow is a four-legged quadruped with an auto voice and a face in which there is no guile. The cows front teeth are all parked on a I her lower jaw so she bites up and gums down. Her tail is mounted behind and is connected by a universal joint. She has four SEW! stomachs; one is a canning factory and the rest are just warehouses. The cow is a domestic animal, but she differs from a hen because she doesnlt lay eggs and from a sheep because her wool is only hair, from a cat because she never catches mice, and from a pig because her hams are beef. The cows child is called a calf, except when it is served at tony hotels; then it is known as chicken. Calves usually have friendly dispositions and morally are all right. They almost never violate the eighteenth amendment or traffic laws. The cows husband is different. He sometimes has a mean temper and bawls at everybody. It is probably due to the fact that some of his country men have to play the goat in bull fights. Cow is worth about four cents a pound on the hoof, twenty five cents in a butcher shop, and a dollar and a half on a plate in restaurants.

Page Two Hundred Fifteen A Short Storiette IMSWF WAS a cold dreary afternoon out of doors; but the lobby of the pres- identis and deanis office was cheerful with the prospects of the fac- I ulty tea that was to occur presently. HI hope they get the point of this meeting'i, whispered Prof. John mischieveously as he and prexy IR1,3'i'fi'sllrtthrtlIttk itill 1114'1 ms let sca ermb tum i at s promlscous y a mm a tie L lalrs mt their own. The door opened at this minute and the rest of the faculty crowded through. hCome on in, folksfy Prof. Freddy bellowed at them, and with a sly wink at the dean added jovially, hThere is a lot to do today; letis get down to brass tacks immediately? Momentary panic reigned as they took their places but it quickly diminished to an occasional groan. WYhat do you birds want to do today", asked the president cheerfully as if nothing had happened. IIVVell I just got a swell letter from Lloyd this niorningm sweetly lisped the Latin instructor, uand if nobody objects I,d like to sing tThose Endearing Young Charms, ii. hOh blah!" interjects Miss Mabel hotly, IIIf weive gotta sing something, letis pick out a piece thatis up to date and has got some literary value besides. I'd suggest 'It Ainit Gonna Rain No More' Ii. IIMotion is killed by remarks", the chief executive rules. ItIs there any other business to consider?" "Mr. Chairbud". muttered the language prof thickly; then adroitly clearing his throat and transposing a wad of gum from his mouth to the chair bottom, he resumed more distinctly. HMr. Chairman, I believe that we should renovate our chapel services. It used to be plenty bad enough when the cheerleader broke up the meetings. But now that we have degenerated to a point where it is neces- sary to use a tPunch and judy" show to entertain the students, its a deuce of a mess, it you excuse my French? "Amen!" came a wail from another corner of the room. HWhat the heck is biting you?" demanded Prof. John of the source of the wail. uJust this". shot back Prof. Bill unabashed, "Old Si is right for once. XVe need to introduce a distinctly religious atmosphere into our morning devotion- als. I believe wholeheartedly that we should pass the collection plate each morn- ing." HBravo", HWonderful", "Applesauceii, came the thundering applause, but the Chairman already had the situation in hand. Stamping his feet for order he suh- mitted the final word. uThat might really have been an extraordinary scientific idea if I had only thought of it first myself But er-eaheas it exists now I can- not possibly imagine how we could use any money that iliight be collected this way. Now everybody exit so I can get some work out of O. T. before supper time".

The Final Word $maNOTHIiR, the fourth edition, of the "Fides'l is completed. The staff has found it a tremendous but extremely interesting task to A compile this edition and it is our hope that it will meet with the approval of our readers and live up to the high standard set by 3mm: "Fidef of the past. The art work can make a hook and much credit for the excellent art in this hook is due to G. E. Van Horn who acted as adviser of art throughout the building, and personally made the four drawings in the openingr section known as Dedication, Future, Staff, and Foreword. Miss Lnra Burdiek assisted by Miss Mary Clement executed the rest of the art work in what we believe to he a very excellent manner. we wish to take this opportunity to thank the advertisers who have helped make this hook possible, and the loyal alumni who have responded so splendidly to our drive for subscriptions. It is a pleasure to work on such a project when those about are interested and will eobperate. livery member of the staff has willingly and competently done his part and worked with the editor at all times with the desire to make a better tlFides" for Milton. The Davis Printing Company has done much to add to the success of this hook and the tireless efforts of Mr. Knecht of this company in aiding the staff toward new and better styles, to mechanical perfection in inake-np, and toward harmony and beauty in color have kept the staff going straight to the goal and made a better, more expressive ilFidesil. This organization has at all times c0- 6perated with us in our efforts to the desired end. The Bureau of Engraving, with their timely suggestions and frank criti- cisms have helped us build up the art theme throughout. It is a pleasure to work with a company that holds the same interest in the book under construction that the staff does and is ever ready to help in any way possible. This has been the attitude of the Bureau Of Engraving and Davis Printing Company from the beginning. The list of the Staff does not include all who have worked on this hook and helped its creation. Every one in the student body has helped but upon special ones fall the chief tasks. Mr. Egmond lloekstra deserves mention for helping Mr. W'ells materially on the Humor section. Miss Dorothy Furrow started much of the active research on the Greek theme and Miss lillis assisted along this line. Credit is due Mr. Paul Sanford, Mr. L. O. Akers, and Mr. G. E. Michel for aiding the circulation department in the sale of the hooks. Mr. W. M. Van Horn has worked in a double capacity througout, building the athletic section in addition to his duties as Managing Editor. The building of such a book as this is a stupendous task. The editor was elected in the February of the year before the book was to appear in May thus giving him a year and a half in which to plan and build the book. The staff was partly organized before the summer vacation and the organization was completed the following fall after the opening of College. It was the aim of each department to portray fully, if possible, the activities of both years and this made a double task. We have made the book, working to the best of our ability; we leave the decision with you. The Editor.
