John Lawrence Archibald Archie Claremont, N. H.
Archie was taken under the wing of the claw of 1928 in the Winter of '27.
The chief ambition of his Hermon life has been to get out: that is, to graduate.
The high spot of his career was reached when he condescended to become the
truant officer. At this position he was a huge success. For all of his diminu-
tive appearance he had a voice and a micn that cowed the mightiest and
caused the timorous Freshmen to shiver. Archie's two strong antipathies are
English Cof any fiavori, and the Sem. The causes for these are unknown, but
it is safe to say that they are firm, and the best o' luck for the future may not
wipe them away.

A big ieplesentatne fiom Africa landed here in the old days and has contin-
ued to grow ever since until even a Zulu would have to sharpen his teeth be-
fore serving Atkins Stew for dinner. Sunshine has acclimated himself to the
pitfalls and dangers of the Hermon Jungle without any dire results. His jolly
nature and his ability to "get it done" have made him successful in the club,
on the football field, and, Cshall we say it or not?l-in Weston. Ever
progressing, although sometimes late to senior tables, Stan has made his last
year the best. Now he continues his circling of the globe,-this time pro-
ceeding to Oberlin.

John Bowman Bartram Batt Arlington. N. J.
Bart rolled--yes, rolled-into Hermon with the motley crew that com-
prised the new students in the fall of '27, Needless to say. he resented the
feeling of being unclassified-and, worse, of being a froshg so, without. waste
of time he "took a flier" and, with the aid of our credit system landed "on all
fours" in the '28 class. But this was not all: for, as well as being a dependable
defense man in basketball, Bart scored a hit as the English earl in the Senior
play. Although by his Sem. entanglernents he has demonstrated his belief
in the good old motto "Variety is the spice of life," still Revell has been his
rendezvous in the past. His Future?-well -ask Peg. .

Douglass Hasbrouck Batten Doug Lyndhurst, N, J.
This six-foot Jerseyite, who ate his first Hermon beans in September of '27,
has proved himself a worthy member of the class of '28. During his year at
Hermon, Doug has been so ready to enter into anything and so successful in
enjoying a good time with everyone that he has made many friends. One of
the first ways in which he distinguished himself was by making a hit in the
Senior Play. After this presentation, he stepped out of his role of butler long
enough to be the hero to a very willing heroine from Gould. Batten is plan-
ning to enter Hamilton in thc fall, and we wish him as much success there as
he has had at I-Iermon.

Richard Harry Berry Dick Crown Point, N. Y.
This wavy-haired Adonis has never yet forgotten how it is done at Crown

demonstrations of how it should not be done by a secretary. That golden
sparkle on his vest. however, did not come from Crown Point, but is one of
those championship footballs which he has held so tenaciously despite being
a target for that ancient mariner's, "Women, women everywhere, and -- they're
worse than drink." The Class of '28, and Pieria, that much-quaffed spring.

know, awaits him.

"Well. folks, here is Lew himself." Were it not for the fact that we are
secluded on this hilltop from what matters most in this world, a' hundred
feminine hearts would beat a little faster at this declaration. He has been
among our best in football, basketball, and swimming: and his interest in club
affairs. combined with other extra-curriculum activities, has shown his worth.
But it is as an actor that Lew is best known to us, and the ease with which
he has been seen to draw the fair heroine to his manly bosom on a well-lighted
stage has made us wonder. He has played a notable part in our school life,
and we all have enjoyed having him in our midst. We are expecting news
of future activities from Mc-Gill.

'Twas back in the Fall of '24 that Brat hopped out of his place in the funny
paper for was it f'nIlege 1f1LVll0l'?l and came to Hermon to find out what a
Sem girl looked like-and we think he has at least learned that by now.
During these four years be was showing us either how it's said in Vermont, or
how one should laugh at a good joke. Yes, even the matrons lost their dignity
and held their sides when this person visited Northfield. Brat is either taking
a position with Barnum and Bailey's as a lion tamer, or taking up Aeronautical
Engineering-or he may even sneak through the gates of New Hampshire
State. The best of luck. anyway!

Alan Judge Campbell Shorty Sugar Valley, Ga.
Out of the tangled wilds of China in '24 came a man whose determined pur-
pose was to free that great nation from its rice pudding and Chow Mein, but
who found it much more worth while to try to free Mount Hermon from beef
stew. The remarkable and most astonishing thing about Shorty is the fact
that 'he has never lost that enthusiasm, grit and determination which was his
when he came, and which has contributed to his success here. A real sport,
sympathizer, and friend to all is he,-a capable leader of men: big-hearted.
true to the inner self, ever cheerful and content. Our best wishes go with
you, Shorty, to Harvard and on into life. .

Leslie Homer Campbell Les New Castle, Pa.
It has been a long, hard, uphill road to success that "Les" Campbell has
traveled. Ever since his arrival in the Fall of '23, he has been persistently
overcoming difficulties that would have discouraged many of us. We admire
him not only as a hard worker but also as a quiet unassuming friend, Few
of us have become well acquainted with "Les," as he has not been a regular
student on campus every term, but all who know him admire him for his
loyalty and his sincerety. We are sure that the spirit he has shown on Her-
mon's campus will win for him many opportunities of usefulness throughout

Hasbrouck Eckert Christiana Christy Ilion, N. Y.
Christy hails from Ilion, somewhere in New York fsee Rand-McNalleyJ.
This sleepy little hamlet lost one of its men-about-town when our black-haired
youth packed his carpet bag and came to do great things on Hermon's hill.
The classroom, the gym, and the dorm were scenes of his activity, and in all
he showed his worth, but, when it came to a question of the Sem-"Such be
for silnple maids and not for queens" CApol0gies to whomever it may con-
cernl. Christy is as much an institution of Hermon as the 6:20 bell. Ever
faithful to friend, class, and sport, he will be missed by his friends at Hermon.
We wish him unlimited success at Illinois and in the years thereafter.

Charles B. Dunham Charlie Trenton, N. J.
Charlie early cultivated a morbid rnistaste for the carniferous mosquito of
the Jersey wilds and set out for higher ground. I-Iermon's hill of green
appealed to this errant lad, and he joined our goodly throng. In spite of a
quiet manner and a reserve, he soon became known to all. By diligence, hard
work and devotion to purpose he broke into fame, making scholastic honors.
Unlike the Daniel of old-he meditated in his heart to partake of the King's
meat, and great was the feast thereof. And now as he leaves our hilltop and
resumes his studies at Princeton, we wish him well.

John Vincent Friel Jack Brooklyn, N. Y.
In the Fall of '24 this innocent lad left his water pistol and his short pants
in Brooklyn and came to Hermon to see what a cow looked like. His first
few terms were spent in a so-called daze: but soon, "getting wise" to his sur-
roundings. he became conspicuous in campus activities. Becoming one of the
outstanding men in the school. Jack joined the elite and several times made
honors. He also occupied a place on the Student Council, and was active in
club and class affairs. Furthermore. and this must be stated with emphasis,
he never failed to enjoy his "sisters" at the Sem. Now he goes to the
University of Alabama to find out how it is done in the South-and show
'em how he did it in the North.

William Capewell Greene Bill Middlebury, Conn.
It is a labor of love for any clammate to write of Bill Greene for for any
sister classmate at the Sem, for that matterl. A grouch or a fit of the blues
could be dispelled immediately by dragging oneself to Bill Greene's den to
hear his cheery, "Aw, that ain't nothin'." It has been whispered that on one
and the same day of the week. Knot so long agol he cured the heartbreak of
two "cousins" within fifteen minutes by a most remarkable prescription. The
Cylinders welcomed him into their fold and shared him with the Dickerson
Club. of which he was president as long as its constitution allowed. His
favorite song is "Down By the Old 'MIL' Stream." There never was a better
man than our Bill Greene.

James Wolcott Gum Jimmy Frankford, Del.
. Since the Fall of 1924, everyone on the campus has known that the reechoing
shout of "Hi, feller" and the distant approach of an expansive grin are sure
signs of the coming of Jim Ginn. With a nature as warm and sunny as his
whole state of Delaware, and with a spirit of comradeship that is irresistible.
.lim has made countless friends, here-and elsewhere. A knack for 'fknowing
how" has managed to keep him out of hot water during his four years: while
his never-too-serious disposition has kept him from breaking his heart over
any subject. It is needless to say our best wishes go with,him wherever the
fates decide-or a southern girl may lead him.

Herinon's intiuence he has learned of books. human nature, true friendship,
and. sad to relate, the reason why Northfield has proved a center of interest
for men of Hermon for almost a hall' century. He has been active in athletics.

Charles Raymond Harwood Ray Rupert, Vr.
During the Fall of '26 one may have noticed this lad from the hills of
Vermont quietly going about his duties on the campus. Who could then have
foretold his development, into one of the highest ranking students in the
class? He may, however, outgrow his aversion for the noise of social life and
exchange it for tuxedo and roadster. He soon became one of King Richard's
minions, doing odd jobs about the basement-learning the business from
the bottom up, as it were. Ray did some good running in the Fall crow-
eountry races, not taking too much time. of course, from his more serious
pursuits. He goes to Middlebury next fall, and our heart-felt good wishes
for the best in college life go with him. '

quickly won our hearts by his ingratiating smile and his keen sense of humor.
Immediately his journalistic tendencies asserted themselves in his work for
the Hermonile and as a correspondent for the Hartford Times. In Cottage 4
Dick soon rose to the top,-in fact. so much that he successfully held alone
the much desired Sky Parlor. Along with his studies and his journalism, this
youth found time to read the humorous publications Ctechnique by Haldemann

His exuberant manner and his cheerfully humorous flow of 'tgab," along with
his sterling Qualities, have made him man ' friends and assure his future

Harold Zell Heuston Zell New York. N. Y.
Harold Zell Heuston. called Bud by his contemporaries and other names
by his teachers, hails from the upper end of New York, where men are men,
and the women-but that's a different story. This two-tisted, half-miling,
poetry-writing young rascal has won eternal fame and everlasting affection
from his classmates. He was just as much at ease in a French class as in
Hillside Parlor. His wit is traditional, his athletic prowew still spoken of.
He helped build the prestige of Hayward, and as number 3 clothed the
"Cylinders" in radiance. One can pay no higher tribute to him than to say,
"Here was a man-when comes there such another?"

John quietly closed the gates of old Hermon after himself in the Fall of '24.
It was not long before it became evident that he would become one of our '28
aggregation. As a student, John is eternally after the high grades, and some-
times he gets them. ln the field of sports it may well be said that this man
is not of the ordinary. He is an all-round athlete, having a special ability in
football, hockey. and golf. .lack is certainly a. society eel, and it is said that
he takes quite an interest in the Seminary class of '27 for a good reason.

THE HERMONITE 15
Cary Howlett Cary Southampton, Mass.
From Southampton came this son of Hercules to perform his labors at
Hermon. And well did he perform them. In the classroom, on the wrestling
mat. and on the gridiron Cary soon made a name for himself. We often
wondered whence came the mighty physique and far-famed head-lock that so
aided him. Perhaps 'Hamp' is the explanation. In the affections of his
friends also he ranks highly-particularly in those of the now far-scattered
and almost forgotten t'TerribIe Six." Whether Cary goes on to the scientific
nursing of bovine quadrupeds or to the honorable profession claimed by most
of the Presidents of the United States. we wish him luck.

Red lxeown fiist canie to Hel mon in the Spring of 1925. His flaming red
hair and his impetuous good nature made many a firm friend for him among
students and faculty alike. Athletically, he is quite versatile, engaging in
track. soccer and wrestling toccassionallyl, and also blowing up footballs and
bugles. His fleetness of foot and his quickness of movement make him
successful in whatever he undertakes. Socially, too. he was prominent. As
President of the Lyceum Club. he represented the Club Council on the
Student Council, and he was responsible for many of the improvements of
club cooperation. To whatever college the Flaming Youth goes we venture
to assert that the college will find in him a real man.

Richard Ford Kinney Dick New Haven, Conn.
The class of '28 keeps eternally its friendship for Dick Kinney. This un-
assuming little urchin wended his way from New Haven in the Fall of 1924 to
take his place in the motley crowd of Hermon Freshmen. Dick took up his
abode in cottage 2, but his hard-heeled slippers and his Bacchus-like spirit
proved to be too noisy for that dormitory. In his new abode at Cottage 5,
Dick developed into the all-round man. A little rough-house or a lesson in
ll Pensernso, a game of soccer or a. passage in Caesar received the same careful
attention. Although he claimed membership in the Bachelors Club, class
parties found him in company with some Arethusa who had made a secret
passage trans Humen. Our best wishes go with you, Dick.

find at the Sem. just the material he wanted, but never mind-a school in
New York is liable to lose a good instructor one of these days. Besides

sea lost. the best cheese maker it had ever had. Desiring an education, he
came to Hermon, but was forced to drop out for a while because of Hnance
and health. He later returned to continue his studies, and has shown us what
sheer grit and determination can accomplish, for Mac is now one of the
ranking students of his class. His love of religious and philosophical dis-
cussion has led him into many a keen argument, and his powers of deduction
are of the sharpest. The fight has been a hard one, and we tender our
congratulations to one who has conquered.
Rudy Maslak is one of the few '28 men who first set foot on this campus
in the fall of '24. Since then he has developed in the class and with the class.
He has fought for '28 in foot-ball, in baseball, and in track. Of his club, too,
he has always been a loyal supporter, Best of all, however, we are far more
conscious of the true, sterling qualities that makes up his quiet, unassuming
personality. As Rudy leaves for college, we wish him the best of success,
knowing that, if he keeps up the steady pace he has maintained here at' Her-
mon, he will do well wherever he goes.

After considering many possible places to procure an education, Archie
decided on the place- Mount Hermon, the time -- the Fall of '24. Apparent-
ly among strangers, Archie soon won his way into the confidence and the
friendship of all. There are certain admirable qualities about him, he has
been consistent, ever cheerful, and determined to accomplish his desired end.
In spite of the fact that there were inevitable handicaps, Archie never lost
his enthusiasm, zeal, and persistency to overcome all obstacles. He is a fine
scholar, a good friend, and an ever-helpful person. Along with him go our
best wishes for a successful course at Oberlin.

Prom thc South with all tht old gallautry of the traditional Southerner
radiating from him came Bill. That drawl-that humor-that smile-all
products of Birmingham and Washington bore evidence that he had never
driven a pair of oxen in Vermont. Quite without pretentiousness, he is charm-
ing, candid, and ingenuous. Among those with whom he has mingled, which
exclude none, he has been a standard. Bill's bubbling humor, his originality,
and his well-known roaring laugh are a better cure for a case of the blues than
the best of Mix Speakman's remedies. He possesses the ability to under-
stand, the ability to forget, and the tactful ability to lend an aiding hand.

Robert Fairchild Ober Bob New Haven, Conn.
New Haven granted us Bob back in the Fall of '26. Ever since his arrival
he has been prominent in football and hockey. both as a player and as a
leader. showing at all times a spirit of good sportsmanship. He is always
considerate of the interests of others and has been a sociable companion for
many on the campus. He is undoubtedly a big out-door man, and he is
often seen heading in the general direction of the golf links, but we are sure
he did not always go for golf alone, for even golfers have been known to
succumb to feminine charms. His natural ability is supplemented by persis-
tent and determined efforts to improve. Bob powesses a personality that has
drawn us to him. and we extend to him our heartiest wishes for success.

In the Fall of '26 Eddie appeared from the general direction of Worcester,
N. Y., and soon became a marked man on the campus because of his ready
smile and his excellent good humor. His faithfulness in his studies. his
enthusiasm in the work of his club.. his loyalty to Overtoun Hall. and his good
sportsmanship in all the sports in which he participated,-all point to the
earnestness that governed his life at Hermon. In only one respect has a less
serious side to his nature become evident. Eddie is a noted collector of
powder-puffs, and we suspect some of them fiashed a reflection in the window
of the Book Store. In the main. however, he has proved himself a Hermonite
of worth. and we wish him the best success in the years to eome.

Back in the good old days of 1924, Dick. a Dllllj coal nnnei from Ranticoke.
Pennsylvania, came through the gates to Hermon civilization. A conscientious,
but amiable student, he soon won his way into the hearts of the other students.
Being recognized early as a leader by his classmates, Dick was elected to the
higher positions of his class from the very start. He was, sad to say, lured
towards Revell Hall at the Sem. by a sweet little girl with the suitable name
of Honey. It cannot be doubted that this fine example of Hermon man shall
make his way in the world: for. besides his all-round ability. there is inherent
in him a fine, noble character. Our best wishes go with him to Boston.

Charles Frank Peters Charlie Elmira, N. Y.
This he-man entered life with the great handicap of being born in Elmira,
where all the trains back into the station in order to get a quick start out,
and where the women pay the bills to remain popular. He first burst into the
limelight when he vociferously stated the opinion that dancing should be
indulged in after supper. The grit and determination that has kept Charlie

study Pharmacy, but we are not unsure that his realization will be that of
manufacturing chairs. Whatever it be, we know Charlie will succeed.

That good old liulgarian saying about men of few words being the best

far from few. while he ranks with the best men. That smile famous for its
width and that well-known "whaddaya mean" have made him many friends

volumes in an effort to settle world problems, he could be found working

noticed that he was unsuccessful in his attempts to imitate Bobby Jones, and
that he concluded golf is not essential for successful Latin teachers. even
though it does add substantially to the vocabulary. George has been active

New Yorker has wrestled with physical opponents, run track teams. and
starred in the Dormitory skits. and was the whole solar system in the '27

of any Seniitc who dared to "n'est-ce pas" in any of the many letters he
received from across the stream. Sparkling wit was his inheritance. His
political oratory will long be remembered and copied. The original Schapiro

an unselfish tireless worker. and the faculty never had any different opinion
of him. He is of that type of men who go far in a very quiet and unobstrusivc

as in affairs d'amonr. he has shown his remarkable abilities. He is every bit
a faithful man of '28, working for his class whenever called. And can this boy

Deefie came to Hermon from the Lincoln School in the Fall of '27, another
of the crowd of high-school and prep-school graduates who- did not consider
their education complete without a year of Hermon. He found plenty of
friends in Crossley, where he roomed, as well as in the other dorms, and
soon gained popularity. His room will be remembered by those of us who
were fortunate enough to see it as remarkable for the fact that scarcely one
square inch of the wall was visible, because of the numerous artistic decora-
tions. In spite of excursions to Greenfield, and such minor diversions as
making an escape from the "sky-parlor" in one of the cottages by means of
-sh-h-hl two school bedspreads tied together, IIGYIHOII life proved too dull
for him, and he left after the College Board exams in June to enjoy himself
for the summer. Later, there came the welcome news that he would graduate,
and we are glad to include him among the members of the class of '28. Ho
intends to enter Yale in the fall. -

-ranging from a partiality to the letter "S" to a delight in snow-baths in
the winter-time-George has always been to his friends as gay as the gayest,
and a genial, generous comrade. During his stay at Mount Hermon, he be-
came so completely absorbed in chemistry that his mind has become a vast
storehouse of chemical lore. George goes to Massachusetts Tech next fall.

U state that the lllcc Club is becoming a
bigger and more important factor in the

what is said each successive year. But it is
true just the same. The Glee Club receives
calls from new districts each year, and thus
its territory becomes more and more extensive.
The Hill, however, is the place where the Glee
Club toils and struggles so as to be able to
lilt its way acceptably through the outside
performances. Student recognition and appre-

To praise the Glee Club and not give credit
for its success to Prof. l. J. Lawrence, its

appeared again at Memorial Chapel in April,
when the players lived up to the reputation
they had made. With their share in the Estey
Concert in June our musicians brought to a
triumphant close their Iirst season.
The rapid success of the undertaking was
due to Mr. Ellinwood's efforts, which brought
order out of chaos, to the skill and the appli-
cation of the players, and to the high standard
that prevailed in the choice of music. Among
the pieces that were played during the year
are 'tFly Minuet" by Czibulka, "Overture"
from the "Magic Flutel' by Mozart, "Valse
Triste" by Sibelius, and the "March" from
"Tannhauser'l by VVagner,
Mention should be made of the stringed
quartet, the trio, and the brass quartct,- all
formed from the orchestra. These groups,
improving of course with time, rendered some
very good music. lt is the wish of all on
campus that the orchestra continue the work
which has been begun, and give the school
that which only it can give.

26 COMMENCEMENT IssUE
l'IYl'Ill will this elass forget the day of its
arrival at llermon. September 9th, 1924,
was a rainy, drizzling, dismal day during the
eourse ol' whieh we lreslnnen plodded in a
straggling fashion up through the Pines, slip-
ping and sliding in the spattering rain. The
important feature that eharaeterized our
arrival was our large numher. 'l'here were two
hundred and fifty ol' us, eoinprising the largest
4-lass that has yet nleseended on Hernion, so
large in laet that the reeeption ol' the follow-
eouhl not, as

ning ol' a

Holbrook Hall and then finding our new
rooms, and heeoming aequainted with the
eampus, some ol' the old hoys, and the Her-
inon way of doing things, our elass found it-
self well started on its eareerg our Freshman
year had hegun.
lt is almost needless to give an aeeount of
the athleties, the meetings, and the other
aetivities ol' the elass during this year, be-
eause it. like all other lfreslnnan elasses, had
no ellieient organization. l should like, how-
ever, to make note ol' two or three ineidents.
Out ot' our ehaotie meeting eame one ex-
pression whieh sinee has heen the pass word
at the eleetions ol' ollieers, for, when a speaker
has heen without definite argument for a
eandidate, he has suhstituted this trite ex-
' 'ran si+:N1oR-JUNIOR ROPE-PULL
pression, "He's the man for the job." The
elass, furthermore, was exceedingly am-
bitious, it was going to he the big freshman
elass, not only in size hut also in aehieyeinentg
it was going to break all records and have a
party with the Seminary Freshmen. Dr.
Cutler, to all appearances, approved of our
project, yet l realize that no one of us
deteetted the sparkle in those misehievous eyes
of his. How well he knew the ultimate re-
sult. It was when we eonferred with the

our turn at being tl1e inisehievous boys at

the four years except that in our senior year
one more was added, namely, Dr. Cutlerp
and our motto, "Faeta non verhaf' was seleet-
THE HERMONITE 27
ed, a motto by which the class, in a large
measure, has been characterized. Yet in
athletics the class has not starred as some
other classes, for it has won but few champion-
ships, one in basket-ball, one in cross-country,
one in indoor track, one in outdoor track, and
one in football. But our tight for the
championship in basketball, which was won
in the Sophomore year, is worthy of special
mention, because the last two games of the
series were the most thrilling and gripping
contests that have occurred at Hermon during
the history of this class. On Thanksgiving
Day the class made a very good appearance
at West Hall, with its extensive decorations,
including, the lmge numerals 1928 which hung
across the south end of the hall. In apprecia-
tion of the excellent dinner that Demi had
made, some of our members brought him into
the dining room, where everybody heartily
cheered him. During the following years this
act of appreciations has been continued. For
the benefit of the seniors of that year, we had
devised a little song,
"Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all tl1e way,
U, what fun it is to slide across the muddy
It was much fun, indeed, to sing it to them,
we had a great deal more fun the following
year, as juniors, in singing it to the '27 seniors,
but it was only the next year as seniors that we
got all the fun of the song, by sliding across
the muddy way ourselves.
Then came our Junior year, it was probably
the most exciting year of this history, for
there was much contention between the 1927
seniors and us, and the best part about our
escapadcs was that we usually came out on
top. Before the annual rope-pull wc made a
little grave behind West Hall, with a tomb-
stone indicating the place where the seniors
were to be buried after the contest, if they
should be defeated. Surely enough, they lost:
and, in order to retaliate by stopping our
parade in West Hall, they tied up our pres-
ident, who, however, was soon freed. The
night before tl1e final football game of that
season somebody painted the goal posts red
and blue tmost likely they were juniorsl.
The next day at noon some one else tried to
paint them some other color. Everybody fled
from the dining hall to see the excitement and
to stop the painting. At this game the senior
goat was torn to pieces before it was brought
on the field. Later we Hgot the seniors' goat"
still worse by having for their benefit a tag
day, on which we wore little red tags. One
sunshiny morning all of us marched up to
chapel with our new class caps, but soon many
of us were lacking caps, because the seniors
found keen pleasure in snatching them from
us while we were not looking. Since the sen-
iors had been having bad luck, caused by some
of our pranks, they, to get even, stole our
bannerg but theirs too disappeared in a short
time. In fact, there was so much tension be-
tween the two classes that one night a quarrel
which occurred in front of the chapel between
the Crossley and the Overtoun boys, and
which aroused Dr. Cutler, was taken to be a
Then came our Senior year, a year during
which we have had some excitement, but dur-
ing which also we have done some memorable
Our class during this year l1as been very
small, having approximately hfty members,
but we have stayed united, enjoying many
good times. Of the vast number that started
with the class in the Fall of 1924 only twelve
have remained to graduate.
This year the nocturnal episode of painting
the goal posts on the football field was re-
peated. ln trying to subdue the many Fresh-
men somc one got a fire hose to spray them
with. But they, being many, captured the
hose, and a large number of the boys were
drenched, not only it-he colorfully paint-
bespattered Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores
but also the green Freshmen. The Juniors on
that night had much fun ripping up our
decorations at Camp Hall, which were in
preparation for a party the next day, but we
l1ad more fun seeing them, under compulsion,
redecorate for us. Another exciting experience
that we 'had with our Junior brothers occured
just before chapel service on the day that the
1928 numerals were put on the Senior Rock.

how much of our ire he could arouse by not
only talking but also demolishing the numerals,

HE six clubs at Mount Hermon, - name-

ety, Dickerson Scientific Club, Lyceum Club,

various other activities
Hlled the day to its fullest
for various club men. Dur-
ing the Fall Term the clubs
held an intcrclub open night
in Camp Hall,the main fea-
ture of which was an illus-
trated lecture by C. VV.
Johnson of Springfield. The
initiations also added color
to the fall program. ln the
literary Held, the Hayward
victory over the Pics and
that of the Philos over the Goo-Goes in debate
played a prominent part in club activity.
During the VVinter Term the thoughts of
club men turn Hrst to the festive board. Most
of thc six select gatherings met some time
during the term at the VVeldon in Greenneld
to help perpetuate a fine Hermon custom, that
of the club banquets. lnterclub rivalry
warmed perceptibly at the Daniels' song fest,
where thc Lyceum club was slated for the
Honors, theirs being second winning of the
cup. Hayward clinched the interclub debates

organizations, individually and collectively
to strengthen themselves. Only by 'tEternal

THE HERMONITE 35
The Tiger Earl
The Senior Play
NOTABLE fact about the Senior Play
this year is that it was presented both at
Vamp Hall and at the Seminary Auditorium.
This was the first time that a Hermon Senior
Play had been given before the student body
of the Seminary and before the townspeople.
The audiences in both places were very appre-
ciative, and the actors, very well adapted to
their respective roles, scored a tremendous
"hit-." It was amusing to notice that, true to
life, the Hermon audience applauded the
heroine, whereas the Seminary gathering
praised the hero.
On the evening of Saturday March 3, while
the Senior Class honoraries were selling the
fifty pounds of home-made candy sent from
the Seminary, Camp Hall was assuming the
aspect of a crowded city theatre on the first
night of the showing of a masterpiece. Indeed,
iyhen the curtain rose, not a seat in the hall
The action of The Tiger Earl takes place in
Pammure Castle, the home of an English lord.
The present earl is in financial difficulties,
and, although he does not cease in his search
for the hidden treasure of his grandfather, the
Tiger Earl, he is forced to take boarders-
much to the distress of the old family butler.
The boarders provide a great deal of excite-
ment, while the aged housekeeper foreshadows
the ghostly happenings that come at the end
of the play. The earl's daughter and the
artist-boarder occasion the love interest. An
English dandy turns out to be the villain
who has stolen the jewels of the castle, and
everybody is happy-after the exit of the
The actors deserve much credit for their
good work in the respective parts. John
Bartram was a typical conservative English-
man as he played the part of the Earl. Coley
Brown as Margaret, the earl's daughter, used
his art of coquetry in his disguise as a little-
more-American-than-an-English girl, and won
a big ovation at his appearance at both per-
formances. Doug Batten as the old family
butler drew from the audience gales of
laughter because of his superst-itions. Brat
Burgess in the role of Mrs. Jeremiah Stowe,
the nosey wife of the hen-peeked Professor
Stowe in the form of Dick Kinney, made quite
a hit with his Yankee Twang. Zell Heuston,
the English fop, brought many a snicker with
his affected speaking and with his mispro-
nounced 'fr's.l' Not to be forgotten is Alan
Wescott, who, as Martha, the old housekeeper,
petrified the audience with the ghastly tales
of the Tiger Earl and of the Bishop. Then,
too, Lew Buckley carried his part excellently
in showing the Hermonites - and the Semites
-- how to make love. The best actor, un-
doubtedly, was Red Wild, who appeared as
the lady of the castle-a position which he
filled with exquisite grace and dignity.
Much praise, however, is due the unseen
workers behind the stage. Ed. Kaus proved
himself a real stage manager, Dick Berry saw
to it that all the little details of stage prop-
erties were attended to, George Blass demon-
strated his knowledge of feminine beauty in
making-up the actors, Vic Smith arranged
all the lighting effects, on which a great deal
of the success of the play depended, and, we
may safely say, if it had not been for the
excellent directing on the part of Mr. Ross,
there would have been no play. '
From the business point of view, the play
was, perhaps, the greatest success at Hermon
for all time. The programs, by the advertise-
ments, tthanks to Red Keownj paid for them-
selves and for other details of business. Main-
taining the same price set by the preceding
Senior Class, the Class of '28 enriched its
treasury by a sum of over one hundred and
forty dollars from the performance at Camp
Hall. But this was not all, for, from the
second performance given on March 12th the
net receipts stood well over one hundred and
ninety dollars- a total of three hundred and
thirty dollars net profit. Of this amount the
Senior Class presented a check for nearly fifty
dollars to the Seminary Senior Class in appre-
ciation of its help.

THE HERMONITE 39
HE merits of the athletic situation at
Mount Hermon have been discussed, pro
and con, by every class entering her portals,
but, regardless of what may have been said,
Hermon athletes have continued to show their
prowess in all branches of athletics.
Following the first call for football last
September, well over one hundred candidates
appeared for practice on Chamber's Field.
For two weeks, Coach Sargis did what he
could to instruct some of the new men in the
technique of the game. At the end of two
weeks, the squad was broken up into class
teams under the supervision of their respective
captains. Then the work began. Each cap-
tain did his utmost so to instruct and encour-
age the men under him that his team might
claim the Championship. The first games of
the season were a repetition of what has be-
come almost a tradition here at Hermon, the
Seniors defeated the Sophomoresg and the
Juniors, the Freshmen. Too much credit can-
not be given the two lower classes for the
fight that they put into their games, for, with-
out coaching and with very little training,
they gave more experienced teams a battle for
their scores. The end of the season found '28
on top, with five victories and but one defeat.
These victories may be ascribed to the fine
teamwork on the part of each man on the
'28 squad. Although the underclassmen al-
ways have had a larger group with many out-
standing individual stars, their teams never
seem to show the same cooperative playing as
is shown by the teams of the upperclassmen.
We should like to mention some of the out-
standing players, but we feel that every man
deserves peculiar credit in his particular posi-
tion. The winners of the Championship, the
'28 team, is the first to have its name engraved
on a handsome football trophy presented by
Rev. Albert C. Fulton, '94, and Mr. Albert R.
Although football is the big sport of the
Fall Term, soccer is fast coming to a place of
widespread interest at Hermon. The past sea-
son saw the various teams evenly matched
with players of ability, a condition which
heightened the general interest in the sport.
Keen competition combined with good sports-
manship drew forth many rooters for their
respective teams. The Freshmen capped the
season by their close victory over the Juniors
in a rousing match that ended 1 - 0.
This year, as in past years, track has
brought many men into the limelight at Her-
mon. In cross-country, Olds did what was
expected of him by winning the two- and the
five-mile races, while Kelly, the surprise of
the season, captured the three-mile, placed a
close second in the five-mile, and finished well
in the other race. The Bemis Medals awarded
for the first three places in the five-mile race,
contested for by the majority of the student
body, were awarded to Olds, Kelly. and Lynch
respectively. By tradition each of the first
thirty men received a well-earned pie.
The beginning of the Winter Term found
groups of men at work in the gymnasiumpre-
paring for the coming indoor track meet. The
usual number of events were run off with fast
competition between the four classes, the two
outstanding features of the day being the
high kick and the half-mile relay. VVhitworth,
Bailey and Meekham broke the former high-
kick record set by B. L. Smith of '27. The
Senior relay team, although bettering the
record for the half-mile relay, cannot have its
time recorded due to a technicality. But there
was no technieality in the outdoor track meet
in June to prevent the '28 relay team from
winning the half-mile relay a good margin.
Keown deserves much praise for taking four
Firsts in the dashes and aiding his team to win
the relay. VVoodland, too, deserves mention as
the outstanding distance man of the day.
There were some surprises in the field events,
yet few accomplishments were up to standard.
The '28 Class won the meet as they have in
two of their previous three years, this time by
a margin of twenty-eight points over their
nearest opponents, the Freshmen.
Just when the frost made outdoor sports a
little uncomfortable, the boys started limber-
ing up in the gymnasium for the basketball
season. Coach Sargis started off the squad on

THE HERMONITE 45
HENCE came the beauty of this campus
of ours? It certainly did not spring, like
a Garden of Eden, from these barren New
England hills. Ah nol Countless Hermon men
have followed D. L. Moody's vision, and by
persistent labor have made this hill a spot of
admiration to all who View its natural beauty.
Countless Hermon men have tugged and
strained, lifted and pulled in order that level
verdant fields might spring forth out of ragged
On this momentuous occasion we stop to
consider what part we have had in this bet-
tering, this beautifying of our schoolg we
pause to catch again the meaning of work.
As I hold this spade, which is but a mighty
symbol,-dear to many Hermon men, I feel
the fitness of a few particularly appropriate
lines of a significant poem entitled Work: -
"Shun not the struggle. Face it! lTis God's
Let me echo those concluding words: " 'Tis
Godls gift!" l am tired of hearing men talk
of responsibility as the leading star 'to achieve-
ment. What- man has not received a certain
pleasure from the accomplishing,-yea even
in the doing of a menial task? There can be
not the remotest doubt as to the keen satisfac-
tion in the accomplishment. Admit it or not,
the desire of finishing the job, the spirit of
fighting through to accomplishment is indeed
at beacon that guides many through a stormy
passage. But is this all? Many of us recall
spending each four hours in helping build the
Overtoun Athletic Field, and a few of our
number were on the scene of action when the
students aided in the construction of the
Crossley Field. This very Spring Term, we
again for a time abandoned our books and
worked to make Shadow Lake a more beauti-
ful spot. We have discovered that-, after all,
there is fun in the very doing of such work
as this if entered in.the right spirit. ln a
similar manner thc man on the work hour
often discovers that, if his attitude is right,
and if his bit is done well, there is a certain
sense of satisfaction. lf we can enter the
duties of life not only with the idea that work
is worth while, and that effort spent digging
earns results, but also with the realization
that there is a real pleasure in the work it-
self, troubles will flee like a sand pile before
the swinging shovel.
When D. L. Moody founded this school, he
clearly saw the advantages of mental and
physical labor combined. He knew the basic
principle involved, and many institutions,
with similar systems, bear witness to his
judgment. That some of the earliest students
of Mount Hermon appreciated this sound
judgment of our founder is testified to by one
of the choicest anecdotes that have to do with
the l880's. On a certain occasion while on the
work hour, which we all know so well, the
Class of '89, in the spirit of fun, presented
their laboring junior brothers with this spade.
Not to be outdone, the Class of '90 turned the
trick and adopted the motto, 'fWe dig," and
the following year presented it at commence-
ment in their turn to the juniors of '91 with
the wish of making it a traditional ceremony.
Thus each year, by this unique custom started
so long ago, we are reminded of the signif-
icance of work.
Last year at this time we received this
spade from the graduating class, with the in-
junction to carry out its meaning. We hope
that in a measure we have lived up to its
intent, that, guided by our class motto, Facta,
Non Verbo-Deeds Not Words, We have
proved our mettle. Now it is our turn to pass
on, our privilege to charge you, the Class of
'29, with its sacred trust. You can not in your
turn hope for success unless you follow its
simple challenge, "We dig." Into your care,
however, we pass it on, assured that, as each
ribbon represents a former battling band of
loyal Hermon men, similarly by the time
your blue and gold shall be added to the dusty
rainbow of colors, you will have made Hermon
better for your accomplishments. May you
not shun, but face the struggle, for it is God's
gift. Certainly only by "digging" will you
achieve. Gifford H. Towle

was immediately tackled, but other juniors
came to help him. Immediately more seniors
jumped into the scufiie, and a regular free-for-
all "hot-tomoley" game followed. When the
hell was tolling out the fatal one-minute
warning, we with torn shirts and an otherwise
generally ragged appearance entered the
chapel. The hands of us seniors stung and
were very warm, but some Juniors were smart-
ing and were warmer somewhere else. Besides
our combats with the Juniors, the Seniors
among themselves have had regular "taking
over the bumps," as they have termed it.
During this, our last year, our social life has
been better than usual. With particularly
vivid memories do some of us recall our latest
and last party, which was held at the Bears'
Den, and which was sponsored by two chap-
erons, who as a result of a somebody's inspired
suggestion took a little stroll that was not only
delightful to them but also very appropriately
pleasing to us. Another social event deserving
mention is the banquet which was given at the
Hotel Northfield to the Seniors of Hermon
and the Seminary by Mrs. W. R. Moody on
the evening of Founder's Day. Our trip over
the Mohawk Trail also is memorable. And,
likewise, we fondly recall the pleasant Sunday
evenings that we have spent at Ford Cottage.
Among other interests of the Senior year is
our football championship, for which our class
is the first to have its numerals engraved on
the Fulton football trophy and to be
awarded the little golden footballs.
Among the traditions that this class has
inaugurated this year, one is the decision con-
cerning the Class Baby, which now sits on the
fountain before Recitation Hall. Heretofore
it has been fought over and hidden most of
the time, but now through the efforts of this
class a set of rules has been made concerning
the tampering with it.
Another tradition of importance that we
have started is the presentation of a piece of
rope in connection with the annual Junior-
Senior rope-pull. It is' to be passed from each
Senior class to the corresponding Junior class,
accompanied with the significant motto, "We
The most important memorial, however,
that the class is leaving behind is the memor-
ial of pine trees which crowns the crest of Her-
mon. It is dedicated to the Hermon men who
stood in their places during the World War.
Long shall we remember the dedication
speeches given by Dr. Cutler and the president
and the vice-president of the class on Memor-
ial Day of this year.
Now our history at Hermon comes to a
close. One very important matter, however,
yet to be mentioned is the warm friendship in
the class. Though we, its members, doubtless
shall never meet all together again, who can
doubt that our friendship for one another will
steadily grow and that individually we all
shall return to this cherished hill top, to
strengthen thereby the love for Mount Her-
mon in which 1928 most of all prides herself?
Alan J. Campbell

Besides these sports, opportunity isvgiven
for wrestling, swimming, boxing, fencing, and
tennis. This season has seen a marked in-
crease in tennis on the Hill-due perhaps
to the large number of skillful players entered
in the matches. With such men as Hartzler,
Stotz, Towle, R. I. Taylor, Place, Paine and
Osborne on the courts, fast and interesting
tournaments were witnessed by many enthu-
As we review the athletics of our four years
here at Hermon, we feel sure that, beyond the
development of competitive group athletics,
our physical department should interest
every student in some phase of athletics which
meets his desire, for recreation and also his
need for a well-rounded, well-balanced phy-
sical development. Through our interclass
organization, athletics have become not a
restricted field of activities for a compar-
atively few stars, but a vast open stretch in
which there is ample rbom for students less
brilliant in their respective games.

Appreciation is expressed especially to the
