PRES. A. E. WHITFORD
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
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
REV. CLARENCE D. ROYSE
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
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.

Students of chemistry may be grouped into three classes: those who will

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

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.

and Christian faith upon which it was founded and developed by Elder

Dearly Beloved President of Milton College, 1902-1920 1
Prepared at Union Theological Seminary, 1883-1885, for the work of the
gospel ministry, he so endeared himself to the hearts of the people of the
parishes where he served that his pastorates were never-to-he-forgiitten periods
of successful church development.
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

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.
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
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. The entire base-
ment will be used for dining room and kitchens. Here a college cafeteria may
be provided. The dining room will be ample for all college banquets.

"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

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.

Besides taking prominent parts in lyceuni, Y. XV. and Y. 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.

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
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

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.

Peace; come away; the song of woe
Is after all an earthly song:

The passing of the sweetest soul
That ever looked with human eyes.

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

$5ME$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.

Each year Idun loses some of her loyal supporters, but each year brings new
members, glad to pledge loyalty to the cause of the Goddess ldun and overjoyed
to partake of the golden apples which are the symbol of health and yuuth.
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.

contain the sentiment that is embodied in the purpose, and the ideals that
make this organization the best of its kinda To be a good Oro means to take
part in every phase of college life, and to he an outstanding man in both
curricular and extra-curricular activities.
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.

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

The annual Philo Oyster Feed under the directorship of G. K. Hemphill,
was held November fourteenth. At this memorable feed a record was broken

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
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!

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
In the year 1926, there was hut one graduate from the Music department,

$MMNJQ of the largest assets of Milton College is the musical atmosphere
that is found here. 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
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.
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.

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. Fred Wise, Leola Turner, and Rollin Pease. In 1925 the Club

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.

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

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
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

35M53T a call for football candidates made by Coach Crandall about thirty
men turned out. 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.

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
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.
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
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.

a fair number of men out for each position. Chadsey, Bentz, and

In the game with Carroll, Crandalbs men started the game with a great dis-

a good scrap, and their Opponents had to tight for every point they won.

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.

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,
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.

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.

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.

$ME$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.

$MEOR the past several years, tennis at Milton has been very popular,
and this year was no exception. 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

In the State Consolation Tourney, XVestby won tirst, defeating Glover in

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.

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.

Freshman debating in Milton College is nut on a par with uther inter-
collegiate activities. 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.

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

Dramatics in Milton
gmuROBABLY Miltonls hrst claim to fame lies in the realm of music.
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.
Great princesi favourites their fair leaves spread
But as the marigold at the sun's eye;
And in themselves their pride lies buried,
For at a frown they in their glory die.
The painful warrior famoused for light,
After a thousand victories once foilid,
Is from the book of honour razed quite,
And all the rest forgot for which he toilld:
Then happy I, that love and am belovid
Where I may not remove, nor be removldf,

A Story of the Civil War with an Ending That Will Surprise You
$W$OU speak of your deeds of valor,
your braveries, as they happened
Y openly upon a battle field. 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
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.
HHe seemed a queer sort of chap when he
lirst cameemiddle aged, pale blue eyes, rusty
brown hair, and a mustache. We were in
bivouac in some nieadowethis certain night
was rainy and the tents were rather damp and
dreary. There were four of us fellows in our
tent. XVe couldn,t read; our tallow candle was
slowly dying of mortitication. We protected
its feeble light as best we could; it was all we
would receive until the next day. Needless to
say, we wereift in the very best of humor.
Then someone pulled aside the flap of the tent.
The candle Hame bowed 10w.

" tQuite Sd wove a distinctive atmosphere
around himself. 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. My mind is st ianded.
Here is an ultimatum delivered to me. My
captain this morning assigned me to guard
duty for tonight. Here is a letter saying that
my wife is seriously ill. Home is but twenty
miles away. I am about to do something rash,
Bob. Ilm goingr home tonight. Will you keep
guard for me? There was a quiet precision in
the voice. 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

ll lYes, it is madness, yet there is no ques-
tion in my heart about it. To go means death;
to stay means, perhaps, only delayed death. To
stay means to die an honorable d iath; to go
means to die dishonorably. Ilve thought it all
over. There is but one thing to do. Will you
keep guard for me?

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. I was at my station
on the hill. 1 can still see him standing before
me with that great weariness, but with a smile
on his face.

zamalVAS born many, many years ago
deep down in the waters of Chesa-
I peake Bay, near Baltimore, you
know. At the tender age of seven
Wmigi days, I attached myself to a con-
venient rock and took up the duties of life in
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.

known before, not in the least. She had lots
of life, and pep, and a will of her own. Per-
haps that was why he liked her so well. He
never could be sure of her all of the time. She
liked to make him worry, to tease him, he knew
she did. But somehow, she could make him
happy and unhappy, and thrilled and scared
all at the same time.
But Dot just didnt understand about foot-

in the game whether a fellow went to bed at
nine d Clock or twelve. And what harm would
a few cigarettes do? Nobody would ever be

stand. And he knew exactly what was going
to happen in a few minutes. The telephone
would ring, and he would hear Dot's sweet
voice coaxing him to come over. A girl friend
from Melville was visiting her, and Jack was
coming over. lVouldlft he come out too and
make the party complete? Oh, yes. she knew
tomorrow was the big game, but just come out
a little while, and dance a little-pleaseeno

bed like a baby every night! . . And
already he felt himself relenting, slipping. Who

It was mid afternoon, the team was on the
field, the game was beginning. Somehow
Donald didnt feel quite up to the mark. His

would play! Dorothy was over on the side-
lines, waving a blue and orange banner and
singing a certain songetheir college song.

signals were called, and a second time he failed.
He knew the team depended upon him. All
the plays were built about him. If he failed,
the game was lost. He admitted this to him-

THE VICTOR 0F SALAMIS-Dam's
Reviewed by I. 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-

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

The battles that Davis describes are real-

rights. Who is to say otherwise? Unfortun-

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-

would need pages to describe the valiant char-

of the sea, and courage to face the next year
of the war. It inspired men to write and to

MY BROTHERTS FACE-Mulecrji
Reviewed by Instida Hats
59:th Brother's Faceyl is a book written
HM by Dhan Gopal Mukerji, a Brah-
min, telling; the story of the au-
thoris return to India after twelve
seams: years of wandering. 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-
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
Round the elmetree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard
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
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!
VVhene'er a noble deed is wrought,
VVhene're is spoken a noble thought,
Our hearts, in glad surprise,
T0 higher levels rise.
Hmloiir to those whose word or deeds
Thus help us in our daily needs,
And by their overflow
Raise us from what is low!

The earth outside is beautiful: whole

My particular trouble tonight is a new

own experience, which are always such a de-

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,

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-

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

One of the Billion Wonders of Nature

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

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:
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

I was particularly interested in because it 111111

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
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
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:
"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
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
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

As the swift seasons r011!
Leave thy low-vaulted past!

Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,

discouraging struggle with the required mathe-

The foundation is yours to build; build

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
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
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.

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

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
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.

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
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

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!

Macbeth Reviewed and Revised
Me-,-3"0REXVORD to reader: In a Fido contest the following scenario
was the only one submitted, so it won fn'st and last place in spite
F of its plagiaristic preface.
P1'.efaLe. Me and Shakespeare fixed up this play or story that
ama is Shakespeare was wild about 11lavs and I saw some literary Value
in it so I made it into a story fo1 the public to 1'.ead I dont know much about
this Shakespeare guy cause no amount of research in the telephone directory
would give me any clue but the book was referred to me by Cal Coolidge anLl Cal
knows his oats in literature
The Story: This thing starts off with a bang, any way there is thunder
and lightning in the hrst scene and in comes three witches. 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
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.

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.

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.

. 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 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.
