— THEODORE LORENZO SEIP. To { }e " priend and f atron of oUr ©olte e tr Volume of indifferent Wortf; i tjUmbly and sincerely inscribed. Tl|e Editor . I 3 r?N presenting to the public this the first number of the Ciarla we deem it necessary to offer a few remarks. Owing to the indifference or dormant spirit of former classes Muhlenberg has not been represented in the college annual world since 1883, when an annual was published under the title of Souvenir. In order to keep abreast with the times; to have Muhlenberg represented with an annual ; to offer a brief panorama to our Alumni of those who now occupy the positions in which they were in days gone by engaged ; to place before anxious parents the histories and achievements of their hopefuls ; and for the good that it may do, we offer this the first number of the Ciarla. The difficulties by which we were confronted and against which we contended were numerous and varied, still from other classes and organizations connected with the College, we have received hearty co- operation in our efforts. Rising above the meaner level of selfish class feeling — whose epitaph long ago should have been written over its mouldering carcass — they have proved themselves worthy the name of college men. Some of our Alumni have seconded our efforts by their kindness and enthusiasm, from none of them have we heard one word disproving the idea. The histories of the several classes, societies and organizations of the College presented herein, have been penned by men of their own bodies, believing that each organization is the best advocate and staunchest supporter of its own interests. If at times we have forgotten the cold truth, and have been wafted into the imaginative world, we ascribe the fault to over enthusiasm and humbly beg forgiveness. If in some personal portraits we have not 6 come up to the sublime ideas of the subject and with our shafts at random sent have pierced some guilty heart, we attribute this fact to nature — the mirror which reflected their image to us. We have chosen the name Ciarla, not to assume a foreign air nor wholly because the name seemed beautiful to us, but for the fact of its being suggestive of the matter which meets the reader throughout the entire volume. The rest of the matter needs no explanation from us. Its merits or its imperfections are left to your kind judgment. If in the Ciarla, whatever its imperfections or however unskill- ful the coloring, may be found a portrait not too unfaithful to the char- acteristics and every-day life of a college man, we feel the work has at least attained towards our hopes and that our efforts have not been wholly in vain. Kind reader, we leave it to you. 7 College Olenbar. Sept. 3. Dec. 21-23. Jan. 6. Jan. 21. April 9-19. May 23-25. June 19, 10 A. M. June 20, 8.00 p. M. June 20-21. June 20-21. June 22.

This article can, in the nature of the case, be a mere outline of the history of our Alma Mater. Muhlenberg College was founded in the year 1867, and is the suc- cessor of Allentown Seminary, founded in 1848, and Allentown Col- legiate Academy and Military Institute, founded in 1864. Long before the Institution was established, the Lutheran Church in Eastern Penn- sylvania had felt the necessity of having an institution of a high grade on its extensive and ever-widening territory; but not until the year 1867 could it see its way clear to carry its long-cherished plans into effect. From the beginning of the existence of Allentown Seminary, many of the clerical and lay members of the Ministerium of Pennsyl- vania were its warmest friends and most hearty supporters. The at- tention of the Ministerium was frequently directed to the Institution, with a view of securing it for the Lutheran Church. The necessity for such an institution became all the more apparent after the estab- lishment of the Theological Seminary in Philadelphia in 1864. Early in the year 1867 a stock company was formed for the purchase of the valuable property of the Institute, with a view of reorganizing it into a college, and for the management of the new Institution by a Board of Trustees, one-third of whom were to be elected by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania. The new Board of Trustees took charge of the College on April 4, 1867; but the old arrangement of studies con- tinued until the close of the scholastic year, when the Military Insti- tute ceased to exist. ■Ill I!

Fred- erick A. Muhlenberg, D.D., Professor of Ancient Languages in Penn- sylvania College. His acceptance of the position was exceedingly grat- ifying to the friends of the new enterprise. It gave prominence and character to the Institution from the very beginning. His ripe and accurate scholarship, his long and successful experience in teaching for twelve years in Franklin College, at Lancaster, and seventeen years in Pennsylvania College, at Gettysburg, his eminent personal character, exhibiting the noble qualities of an honorable Christian gentleman, his kind but firm disposition and the fact that he was a worthy son of noble ancestors with a name distinguished in the history of our coun- try and Church, marked him out as the man for the place, capable not only of occupying, but also of dignifying the position. The name of Muhlenberg was given to the College, in honor of the Rev. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, who was the first pastor sent from Germany to labor among the Lutherans in Pennsylvania, and who organized the Church in this and other States and was instrumen- tal in organizing the first Lutheran Synod, under whose auspices the new College, bearing his honored name, was about to begin its exist- ence. As soon as possible after the establishment of the College, the Board of Trustees began the work of arranging the buildings for the larger field of usefulness to which they were in future to be devoted. The buildings were enlarged, united and a large wing added, so that it presented a front of one hundred and thirty feet, the central building being four and each of the wings three stories high. Arrangements were also made for the erection of a new building one hundred feet long and five stories high, to be attached to the central building. On September 4, 1867, the corner-stone of the new building was laid by President Muhlenberg with appropriate ceremonies, the services con- nected with it being attended by a large concourse of people. The inauguration of the President and the other members of the Faculty took place on Tuesday evening, September 3, and recitations were begun in the several departments on the following day, with pro- visions for a full number of hours for all the college classes. A num- ber of students from Pennsylvania College had followed Dr. Muhlen- berg to his new field of labor, and with others, who presented them- selves, applied for admission, so that the Faculty could begin their labors with four classes, as follows: four Seniors, two Juniors, six Sophomores and thirteen Freshmen, a total of twenty-five. The aca- demic department had one hundred and thirty-eight pupils during the year, making a total for both departments during the first year of one hundred and sixty-one. The Faculty consisted of eight men, who were eminently qualified to discharge the duties of their various depart- ments. Whatever the College may have lacked in its earlier or later history, it always has had good and well qualified instructors in its various departments. The standard of the Curriculum was from the beginning on an equality with that of any of the neighboring insti- tutions. President Muhlenberg abb - administered the affairs of the College until the close of the year 1876, when he resigned in order to accept a call to a professorship in the University of Pennsylvania. On October 11, 1876, the Rev. Benjamin Sadtler, D.D., who had been very suc- cessful as Principal of the Lutherville Ladies’ Seminary, was elected to the Presidency. He assumed the duties of the position January 1, 1877, and ably administered the affairs of the Institution until the latter part of the year 1885, when, owing to physical injuries which he had received iu the previous winter by a fall on the ice, he resigned and retired from the active duties of life and now lives in well-earned retirement in Baltimore. On November 5, 1885, the Rev. Theodore L. Seip, D.D., then Mosser-Keck Professor of Greek, was unanimously elected by acclamation to the Presidency of the College. Dr. Seiji was 14 the unanimous choice of the entire Synod for this position. He had been connected with the Institution from the beginning of its exist- ence, had assisted President Muhlenberg in arranging the course of studies and organizing the internal affairs of the College, and had served in every department, from the academic department on up ; and hence was very well qualified for the position to which he was now called. He assumed the duties of his position on January i, 1886. Immediately afterwards, the affairs of the Institution were reorganized, the course of studies raised to a higher standard and work was begun to materially advance the internal and external interests of the College. In all these matters his efforts were seconded by the other members of the Faculty, the F ' iuancial Agent and the Board of Trustees. The only part of the work of Muhlenberg College that has not been as successful as its most zealous friends desired and had reason to expect, has been the financial part. From the very beginning of the existence of the College the Synod did not give it the support which it deserved. A heavy debt was incurred in the erection of the neces- sary buildings; the financial panic of 1873 an the consequent stagna- tion of business throughout the Lehigh Valley, and the lack of suffi- cient endowment, hindered and retarded the financial prosperity which was hoped for and which the friends of the College had reason to ex- pect. The first years were, necessarily, years of trials and difficulties, self-denials and discou ragements; but in spite of the hindrances in the way, the work went steadily on to final success. The current expenses were met by gifts from Synod and individuals, the endowment fund was gradually increased by smaller and larger gifts, the latter including the Asa Packer bequest and the Mosser-Keck gift of thirty thousand each, so that now Muhlenberg College has property worth $100,000 and an endowment fund of $134,000. Since 1884, the Rev. Charles J. Cooper has been laboring as Financial Agent, and has succeeded be- yond the expectation of the most ardent friends of the College in re- 15 ■ ' ywyN m ducing the burdensome debt of $75,000 to less than $50,000. He is at present engaged in the collection of funds to liquidate the entire indebtedness before the celebration of the quarter-centennial of the College, with good prospects of final success. The permanency of Muhlenberg College is no longer in question. It has taken root too deeply and firmly to be eradicated. Its influence has made itself felt throughout the State of Pennsylvania and beyond. The 300 alumni, many of whom occupy important positions of honor and trust in Church and State, the more than 200 partial-course stu- dents and the nearly 1000 students who have been for a longer or shorter time in the academic department, attest the magnitude of the work done, the influence exerted and the educational facilities placed within the reach of a large number of young men, who might other- wise not have been able to enjoy the advantages of a collegiate train- ing. Muhlenberg College deserves the hearty support of the large con- stituency of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, the substantial encour- agement of its annually increasing list of alumni and the moral and financial aid of the people of Eastern Pennsylvania who are interested in the higher Christian training of the young men of this age.

YES, at last the greatest of all years has come, and although the achievements of ’92 need no recording since their memory will live forever, it might not be a bad idea to aid the Muse by setting them down in black and white. On Sept. 6tli, ’88, when first mustered we numbered twenty-two, and when the haughty Senior or the naught} ' Soph, first condescended to gaze on us, no doubt we looked as if we thought we hardly had a right to exist. Sixteen of us had passed through the mysteries of “ prepdom,” and so our courage soon returned and we began to assert ourselves by effecting a class organization on Sept. 12th, and adopting Black and Orange for our colors, together with that inspiring motto, “ Labor omnia vinciT.” We also decided to adopt the following to be 19 used on occasions of distress and also when feeling too full for utter- ance in any other way: Rah! Ray! Ruh ! Rah! Ray! Ruh ! Muhlen- berg! Ninety-two ! In time we grew bold, and when the political cam- paign of ’88 was fully opened we decided to astonish the natives by giving a Belva Lockwood parade. The affair no doubt zvould have been a success, but on account of foreign pressure of a kind not to be disregarded we decided not to make any bustle , not even to skirt the town, but to stay at home as a matter of corseif). ’92 is nothing, if not original, and as all the other classes had gone on sleigh rides some- time during the Winter, our class did not go. There was a reason for this, however, in the fact that there was no snow during the season, and as for a sleigh ride without snow — it’s no go. After all these ex- ertions we began to ‘‘bone” for our exams, and by proper x:se of all the “ aids” offered to a college student we all “ got there” and then went home to enjoy our vacation. The first taste had been enough for some, an d at our next assembly we found that Wm. M. Blackman and James K. Bowen were among the missing. During this term it was our sad duty to follow to its last resting place the body of Titus S. Troxell. He was well beloved by every one, and in him we lost one of our most esteemed members. Right at this point in our history ’92 fairly outdid herself. The custom had been to hold Livy Crema- tion in the open air, but instead of this we decided to give a perform- ance in Music Hall. We went to work with a will, and on June 25th, ’89, gave to a crowded house a performance which, it has been ac- knowledged, has not been equalled before or since, but which has been imitated by all the subsequent classes, who thus flatter us more than they possibly could by words. Thus has ’92 inaugurated one of the most delightful features of Commencement week. At the end of Freshman year our lines were further thinned by the loss of Milton K. Neiffer, Henry S. Neff, Edward H. Soleliac, and H. Douglass Spaeth. The opening of Sophomore year brought us one new man 20 in the person of Henry B. Richards. Various schemes for his initia- tion were proposed and we again decided to receive this valuable addi- tion in our own peculiar manner. Just here Thanksgiving came in and we thought to have some fun by introducing the national bird into the class-room of the English Department, but as it turned out the Doctor did not like “spring turkey,” or perhaps took offense at the “speaker” who was to present it, and thus were we foiled in our “fowl” attempt. The failure to introduce the Turkey question into the English Department was too much for one of our members, and at the end of the Fall term Ed. H. Kistler dropped out of the class. After much discussion it was decided to hold a banquet in honor of Mr. Richards, and accordingly it was done. On Feb. nth, ’90, the class captured the town and then proceeded to Hotel Allen, where a delightful evening was spent. The menu contained all that mortal man could wish besides olives, cheese, and chocolate e’clairs. Oscar F. Bernheim presided as toastmaster, and the various members re- sponded eloquently to the toasts proposed. But while we feasted the enemy — i. e. ’93 — was preparing a trap for us. When we returned to College we discovered that they had taken possession of the front steps with brooms, buckets of water, and twice the number of men we had. Although we charged them bravely the odds were too great, and never expecting such a shower of compliments and water as we received, the best we could do was to capture one of their men. Finally we broke their line and drove them before us when opportunely for them “ the powers that be” appeared upon the scene and prevented ’92 from fol- lowing up its victory by punishing the audacity of ’93. During the contest the walls became bright blue and a suspicious odor as of sulphur lingered round for a day or two. (It has leaked out since then that ’93 would have been instantly annihilated if one of our members had had on his fighting trousers.) Thus did we show our valor and triumph o’er the foe. There was also a contest within the class be- 21 tween Adam L,. Ramer and Ed. H. Trafford for the botany prize to be awarded for the best essay and herbarium on the order “ Crneiferae.” Mr. Trafford was the successful contestant, and his work was a credit to himself and his class. Again defying all precedents instead of the mock-program chestnut, we pierced the veil of the future and issued our “Prophecy of Class ’90,” which was hailed with admiration and delight by all its readers, besides being a beautiful souvenir of Com- mencement. At the end of this year Walter C. Swartz left us to seek knowledge elsewhere. Junior year brought us a valuable addition in the person of J. Richmond Merkel, who increased our membership to fifteen, which is also our present number. We began to unfold the mysteries of Calculus now, bnt even that proved unreliable to calcu- late when we would flunk in English History or even to discover how one of our members came to think that an Epicure was “a man who wrote Epic poetry.” The next thing of interest was the banquet in honor of Mr. Merkel, which was a decided success. It was presided over by Mr. Bertolet as toastmaster. ’92 has often proved its love for its Alma Mater, but never better when it dropped its pennies into a bank and purchased a handsome map of Europe. This was presented on Jan. 26th, ’91, and adds much to the beauty of the German Room. The class wound up the year with a grand display of fireworks. In other words we had an oratorical contest in which eight of our mem- bers entered and in which all did themselves credit. After the smoke of battle had cleared off it was found that I. H. Stettler had taken the prize and H. B. Richards and Fred. Doerr had received honorable mention. September, ’91, found us all back and we soon showed the spirit that animated us by presenting the Department of Applied Sciences with a handsome color chart. To hear our “own Charley” make the presentation speech was better than a night at the circus. Our class also had a benefit, (if you have tears, prepare to shed them now,) and we secured the U. of P. Glee and Banjo Clubs, but after lis- 22 tening to a delightful concert and counting the money we found that the entertainment may have been a benefit for some one else but not for us, and that is why we are not making arrangements for a class- day. ’92 has just taken a slight dip into the fountain of knowledge and finds itself amazed by its depth, but in this quest we will be fifteen true and loyal hearts bound together by the ties of high esteem and mutual friendship, and believing in the truth of our motto, “ Labor omnia VINCIT.” .r " ‘ferMIT’’ h A r; !

Such a halting place has been reached and now let us turn and gaze through the dust and turmoil raised by our literary chariot and view briefly, and we hope vividly, the road behind us over which we have journeyed. We ask you to tarry with us while we narrate to you a few episodes in the onward march of the Class of ’93. We assembled in Chapel for the first time as a class on the fifth of September, 1889. The Preparatory “braves” immediately fraternized with the new men received by passing the Rubicon of examinations, and after adopting a constitution, class colors and a yell, began the up- 27 lilt illilii :!!

We quickly be- came accustomed to our new surroundings, and ere long were the de- light of the faculty — the wonder and admiration of the higher class- men. We “ locked horns” with the belligerent Sophomores for the first time on the night of ’92’s banquet, February eleventh, 1890. On our rivals returning from the scene of their barbaric revelry they were greeted with the famous “Nolli-me-Tan-ge-RE” yell of ’93 accompanied by numerous buckets of H.2 O. The battle was short and decisive — suffice it to say that ’93 “ Came , saw, and conquered We cremated our arch-enemy Titius Livius in Music Hall June 24th, ’90. Our re- venge took the form of an original three-act play in which our hated foe was forever vanquished. The histrionic talent of the class covered itself with glory, and amid the glare of footlights and the applause of a vast audience our first year at Muhlenberg College became a thing of the past. On our return to College in Fall, “we put off childish things” and became full-fledged Sophomores. We received several new addi- tions to the class roll, and so a formal initiation became necessary. Accordingly, on November 2 1st we eclipsed all other class ceremonies by making a pilgrimage to the city of Reading in our own special car, and at the Hotel Penn introduced William Rick and Harry A. Yetter to the venerable class goat and his attendant mysteries. A royal ban- quet followed and the next day, after seeing the sights of Reading, the class boarded the homeward-bound train and ere long were once more within our “ classic walls.” The trip was a grand success, and the “boys” still remember the many courtesies extended to them by the citizens of Reading. So our Sophomore year wore away quickly and pleasantly. We soon found ourselves at Commencement week, and in order to render the exercises more entertaining and instructive (?) we issued the usual mock-program. And thus ended another pleasant year. f , - i ' I ' HEK.

Finding that this year presented us with no opportunity for “ spreading ourselves,” we unanimously decided to erect a lasting mon- ument to our class honor by reviving the long deceased Junior Annual. The “Ciarla” is the outcome of our plans and labors, and upon its pages this feeble history has been written in the hope that coming generations of students as well as our patrons and friends may, at least, in some degree become acquainted with the deeds of ’93 while at College. Our College course is nearing its end ; but one short year, and old Muhlenberg will place us 011 the mighty stage upon which we must all act our allotted part. May we then have as our guide and lode-star the noble motto, which for the three long years has bound us together, and which we hope will ever lead us forward on the pathway of life — “ Animo Et Fide.” Historian. 29 Class Colors — Red and Black.

As these noble wise men were anxiously ex- amining the fates of their stars in the regions round about Emaus and in different other parts of this vast Continent, each one, being inspired by his own destiny, set out to find what wonders were in store for them. Thus these noble and wise men went on their pilgrimage, each taking different routes, until on Sept. 4th, 1890, we find them pitching their tents in Queen City on the Plains near the Jordan. These wise men came together not knowing each other, for each spoke his own peculiar dialect ; finally the spirit moved them and it was made known to us that we were all endeavoring to reach the same object. So on Sept. 10th, 1890, between the hours of eleven and twelve, we for med ourselves into one band, known as the Class of ’94, to travel on this pilgrimage. Now it became evident that we were to have some motto, that was to be kept before us, and which should en- courage us on our journey. So all, with one accord, agreed to take the following motto, because it was so appropriate to our band, “Quot 33 homines, TOT sentenTiae.” Then the thought came up that while traveling over these mountains and prairies, some of our number might stray from the fold. So we made ourselves sure by securing a cry, in which are also our colors with which our camp is decorated. RougeetNoire! RougeetNoire! Muhlenberg! Muhlenberg! ’94! Thus being fully equipped this noble band starts forth on its career. At this point we came into contact with men who were endowed with great wisdom and knowledge, at whose feet we sat and imbibed the teachings they handed down to us. They instructed us in the different languages and sciences, so that we could converse with one another and make it more agreeable. As our band was noted for its interests in Biblical studies, we secured, through the aid of one of our instructors, some large pictures of the Holy Land, that we might be- come acquainted with the customs of the people. On November 7th, 1890, two wise men came to our camp and sought admittance. We kindly received them and duly initiated them into our band. As these young men were also strangers in this vicinity, we endeavored to make it pleasant for them by showing them the surrounding country. We took them to a town called Bath, where we surprised their mortal diaphrams with an excellent banquet, returning in the stillness of the morning broken only by our cry and songs. Thus this band worked on in harmony until June 16th, 1891, when a mortal enemy of the Latin tongue, Livy by name, entered our peaceful camp with hostile intent. This noble army rose up as a mighty arm, slew this Roman and sent his soul to perdition, upon which act we were not only complimented by our competing classes, but highly complimented by the President of our great camp. With this we close the first year’s existence, being known as Freshmen or so-called greenies, but we were never so green as to paint the num- ber of another class in green. 34 Now, in the second year of onr sojourn in these plains, two wise men from a neighboring camp came to us wishing to join this thriving band. They were heartily received and tendered an excellent recep- tion at one of the principal hotels in the vicinity of our camp, where the command was given them to eat, drink, and be merry ; whether it was obeyed or not, I need not say. Nevertheless, it appears that one of our band was never at a reception of this kind before, for he im- agined he was eating “Jumbo soup” and “Camel back duck.” We have wondered since what his stomach was lined with. Thus it is impossible to inscribe everything that we have done, but this much we say: as they have begun so may they continue; may they grow in wisdom and knowledge and aspire to great things in this life ; may they be blessed with all the advantages of this world’s goods, so that when they arrive at the place where their star is waiting for them they will not be disappointed, but receive true grace and riches, so that their Alma Mater may feel proud of them, and the world at large be glad to ’receive them. Thus long live ’94. Historian. 35 Class Colors — Pink and Blue. Class Cry — Rah- Ray ! Rah-Ree ! Ninety-five! M.C.! Officer i E. Louser, President. F. C. Krapf, Vice President. W. J.

After having landed here we were graciously permitted, by the magnanimous “ Sophs” to take up our permanent abode. This high prerogative of making ourselves known to the inhab- itants of this mundane sphere was granted to us by the indulgent Juniors. To feign modest y, or fail to seize this opportunity so cordi- ally extended to us, would have been a direct disavowal of our Fresh- man proclivities. Therefore, we extend to you our humble appeal. It seems a peculiarity, common to every educational institution, that every Freshman class starts out with brighter prospects than all the preceding ones. And that every new class is better than its pre- decessors, both in physical and intellectual attainments. Why this is so we will not attempt to explain, suffice it to say, we do not claim to be superior to those who are in advance of us, but we do claim to be superior in one thing, not in verdancy as the Sophs would have you 39 believe, but in physical abilities. They will agree with us that the number of our strong men is by far more numerous than our weak men, a circumstance which, of course, is common to every class. Our ideal college man was one who could nightly be seen bending over his books by the dim light of his kerosene lamp. But, alas ! for human ideals ! Our ideal was destined to come to an untimely end. When we saw the Sophs marching in and out of the different re- citation rooms, with heads high up in the air, as if dreading to breathe the lower stratum of air, we concluded to investigate the cause why all wore long coats. Imagine our surprise when we saw them artfully concealing, not Platos or Ciceros, but frisky little ponies. We at once came to the conclusion that this was the reason why one of them wrote such an elaborate oration on “My Mule;” undoubtedly he had experience with the animals. We do not wish to complain about any- thing ; we had a fair start upon our course. In number we were but twenty-five ; after having lost three, the sufficiency was made up by the predominance of a character greatly developed in physical culture ; in this the Sophs will also agree, because, have they not abstained from making a display of their supposed superiority ? We had our sleighride and banquet without any hindrances whatever, and when the Sophomores had their banquet we had our fair play. This was not a difficult matter to have, for they were easily traced, so plainly did they leave their foot-prints in green that we could not have missed them had we even tried to do so. The Sophs are the sworn enemies of the Freshmen in every in- stitution of learning, and Muhlenberg College is by no means an ex- ception to this rule. But for their own edification we must say that they kept wonderfully quiet, never attempting to molest us in any wa y, but once. It so happened one afternoon, as we were zealously trying to keep quiet in one of our esteemed Professor’s recitation room, that some of them came out trying to give our class cry. The way 40 they treated our poor cry was shameful ; to endure such a thing with- out saying anything is more than ordinary mortals can possibly stand ; so we attempted to rush to the rescue of our suffering cry ere it was utterly ruined, but were restrained by the Professor, who has a righte- ous horror to blood-shed. If we had not been kept back, who could say where the present Sophomore class of Muhlenberg College would be at the time of this writing ? We had the misfortune to lose three of our members with but one addition. Those who have gone away from us carry with them the best wishes of the Class of ’95) wherever they may go. We were sorry to lose these men, but can only hope that they are enjoying themselves in their new calling. Our class-room work was very enjoyable throughout. Our in- structors were ever zealous in their endeavors to lead us into paths where we were enabled to perform our duties with the best advantage resulting therefrom to us. Of course, reproofs were in order on some occasions, but we must say they came at the right time. Our class meetings were always full of interest to every one of us. Great diversity of opinion often prevailed, yet we stand as one solid body. If this union will continue, as it undoubtedly will, we feel confi- dent that much good will come from our class. Amid many trials and temptations we have stood ; much of our verdancy has left us; and so, if the fates are propitious, we will con- tinue to the end.

Guterpean £iterary 3 0Cie y @ £[ LMOST every age and every country, blessed with any tincture of literary culture, has had its associations, under some name or other, for free and frequent discussion of topics of common inter- est. Oral discussions were among the earliest and most effective means of eliciting truth and diffusing knowledge. At the time when Muhlenberg College was founded, the Faculty immediately recognized the importance of having meetings where the youth could freely ventilate their thoughts. In consequence one-half of the students, chosen by lot and without respect to individual de- sires, met in a recitation room on the first hall on Sept, nth, 1867, and organized the Euterpean Literary Society. On this day nine members signed their names to the constitution. The nine were W. F. Muhlenberg, M. D., Rev. I. N. S. Erb, Rev. Win. Frick, Wm. Kuntz, M. D., Richard Beck, M. I)., David Hoffman, M. D., Prof. B. F. Knerr, Rev. A. J. Long and Rev. H. B. Strodach. From all ac- counts the academics were first admitted on Oct. 2d, of the same year, on which day nine new members were added to the list of the society. Though the College had just begun its existence, it had the four classes represented, as students came from other institutions and joined the higher classes at Muhlenberg to finish their course. Of these Euterpea lost two from her midst by their graduation ; namely, Dr. W. F. Muhlenberg and Prof. Luther A. Swope. On Sept. 18th, 1867, the society elected its first regular President. The election did not honor the higher classmen, as the choice fell upon Rev. Wm. Frick, who was a Sophomore at the time. His faithful work can not be too well spoken of, as, in the welfare of the society, he followed out the motto, “Watch and Advance,” to the extent of his ability. 53 In the start a need of money, for starting a library, was experienced. The library, then started, now numbers two thousand one hundred and fifty volumes. A considerable sum was required, but no one could be found who would lend it to an unchartered body. So application was made and a charter was obtained on April 6th, 1868. It bears the sig- natures of the following members, namely, Rev. M. J. Kramlich, Rev. I. N. S. Erb, Dr. W. H. Kuntz, Rev. J. J. Kuntz, Rev. S. A. Ziegen- fuss and Rev. G. T. Weibel. Dnring this scholastic year the charter has been recopied, beautifully framed, and placed on an easel in the hall, where it may be seen at any time. In the early period of its life, the society had to combat with troiible and soon found imperfections in its constitution. On account of fraternity troubles two members of our sister society transferred their membership to Euterpea. Both societies seeing the unjustuess of allowing such actions, as then a person might change from one to the other to satisfy a whim, passed amendments to their constitutions on Sept. 9th, 1868, prohibiting a person from becoming a member of more than one literary society in this institution. On Sept. 2 1st, 1869, a number of badges were purchased at a cost of five dollars each. We are sorry to state there are none such in ex- istence among any of the present members. In 1871 a benefit enter- tainment was given in the Court House. The profits were considera- ble; so, on Feb. 21st, of the following year, the experiment was re- peated. However, the city did not support the enterprise and instead of reaping success, over a half hundred dollars were lost. This lesson has had a salutary effect and since then no entertainments for specula- tion have been given by Euterpea. Because the minutes of the first six and a half years have been lost in some way, the exact date of changing the place of meeting cannot be ascertained. From the best information at hand, the re- moval took place about 1868. Since which time the society has been 54 meeting in room number sixty-five, on every Wednesday afternoon, for the diffusion of liberal principles and the promotion of social, intel- lectual and moral improvement of its members. The exercises of these meetings consist of essays, debates and speeches. During the latter part of 1883, the society made a practice of holding very short meetings. These meetings became so short and frequent as to attract the attention of the Trustees and Faculty of College, who then made use of their authority. Since then the literary societies are compelled to remain in session for not less than two hours, unless by consent of the President or Faculty of College. In the Winter session of 1888-89 F was thought advisable to have the hall renovated. Accordingly it was done during the Easter vaca- tion. On the return of the members they were scarcely able to recog- nize their old meeting place, as its walls had been repapered and the floor covered with a beautiful carpet. Of the number who have graduated from Muhlenberg one hun- hundred and sixty-two have been members of Euterpea. Of these ten have departed from this life, one of them, A. W. Kistler, within the last year. There is no doubt that in Euterpea’s halls many of her alumni members derived the first effective impulse to extraordinary achieve- ment and the first real consciousness of their own strength, which has made them useful in their different vocations of life, including the professions of ministry, law, medicine and teaching. At present the society numbers forty-one members who are doing their utmost to have interesting meetings. Though many things may be said and done in Euterpea’s halls, which had better be left unsaid and undone, yet the benefits derived from the sessions are such as to out- weigh all objections which can be brought against her or any other society. 55 fyronian literary 3 0Cie y ]Motto — “ Gnb Croons t e orh.” Officer r$- H.

PJvitsi, sj o ronian literary 3 0Cie y ® £I 7 HE students who came to Muhlenberg College, when it was opened in the Fall of 1867, very soon felt the feasibility of organizing literary societies. When the present societies were formed the students met in one of the larger recitation rooms on the second floor of the original building. The privilege of membership was then, not as now, confined alone to the college students, but those in the preparatory department had a like privilege. The attending students were divided up about equally, and were chosen by lot. Those who had the good fortune to be chosen into Sophronia’s fold organized themselves into a literary society on Sept, nth, 1867. Sophronians adopted for their motto, “The End Crowns the Work.” Luther A., now Prof. Swope, of Cambridge, Mass., was the first President. Since the society’s early minutes are among the missiug, a definite account relative to its organization can not be given. From “The Collegian” of June, 1868, which was published by the “ Franklin Society,” it has been learned that Sophronia’s member- ship was thirty-three — eleven out of the College department and twenty-two out of the Academic. The meetings were then not held where Sophronians have been accustomed to assemble for some years, but in recitation rooms. That young men, many who had come from older institutions, where their literary societies had a permanent loca- tion, would soon become dissatisfied with such an arrangement, and would ask for a larger and more permanent location, we very natiwally expect. Such a petition was very soon presented to the authorities, and in due time Sophronia was assigned her present quarters. The society occupied the present hall about the latter part of 1869. The petition being granted, the great burden now to be met was the fur- nishing of the large and commodious hall. The pioneer members 59 truly had many burdens to remove. How they overcame them is in- deed to us a marvel. Judging from the money that was outlayed for the furnishing of the hall, it must have presented a very attractive ap- pearance. Almost four hundred dollars were expended for the procur- ing of a new brussels carpet, new chairs, a President’s desk, and other necessary furnishings. This hall has been carpeted and papered quite a number of times since then. In 1882 heavy damask curtains were procured for the windows at a cost of fifty dollars. The bust of the Great Reformer, Luther, which adds very much to the appearance of the hall, was purchased in 1883. Mr. P. F. Eisenbrown, proprietor of the Eagle Marble and Granite Works, Reading, Pa., very kindly pre- sented Sophronia with the artistically designed marble pedestal, on which the bust rests. The pictures, which adorn the walls at present, were procured in 1886. The present appearance of the hall is very attractive and tasteful. Last year the hall was almost entirely newly furnished — a new brussels carpet was purchased, the walls repapered, and several very handsome chairs and a new Secretary’s stand were purchased. The library at 110 time was neglected. The society dur- ing its early history was fortunate in having quite a number of books presented to it, yet, not less than two hundred dollars were expended for books during the first year. The librarian’s report of 1871 shows that Sophronia was at that time the owner of eight hundred books. This plainly proves that Sophronia’s sons, not even during its early and troublesome period, wanted for books. In 1874 the library was improved considerably and one hundred and twenty-five dollars were alone outlayed for the procuring of new closets and shelves. Later on more closets were added. The number of books catalogued at present is about seventeen hundred. Sophronia has made quite a number of creditable appearances before the public. O11 the evening of March 23d, 1871, a concert was held in the Court House. From the sale of tickets, which amounted to one hundred and fifty-one dollars, we judge 60 ll llll!llll!lllllil that it was not an ordinary affair. Several “ public meetings” were held at different times in the Court House. On Dec. 12th, 1883, an open meeting was held in the College Chapel. The music was ren- dered by the society’s glee club. The last “ open meeting” was held on the evening of Feb. 15th, 1889, in Music Hall, and was a grand success. Quite a number of other public meetings were held at differ- ent times in conjunction with the Euterpean Society. The societies used to have different prominent public men to deliver addresses be- fore them and the general public. In 1876 the society printed the “Public Mirror;” this made its appearance about commencement time. Judge Dana delivered an excellent address before the society on Feb. 2d, 1881 ; the same was printed and a copy was forwarded to the different honorary members. The Euterpean and Sophronian societies in 1886 purchased a church book and a large and handsome Bible, to be used in the College Chapel. Mr. C. R. Bastian, of the Class of ’77, and a member ot Sophronia, died on Oct. 30th, 1876. The society attended his funeral in a body, which was held at his home at Trexler- town, and a badge of mourning was worn for thirty days. The wearing of a beautiful gold society pin was inaugurated in 1882 ; it was worn for quite a time, but at present it is not worn. Whenever the society had occasion to appear in public, the President used to be marshal and wore a white velvet sash trimmed with silver fringe; the members, likewise, wore a badge. The meetings of the society are held every Wednesday afternoon. The literary part of the programme consists of orations, essays, and debates. The Budget, a journal of wit and humor, is read at every meeting, and adds considerably to the meet- ings’ enjoyment. The first and last meeting of every session is devoted alone to business. The present membership of the society is thirty- nine, with very good prospects of having next year a very much larger membership. The society loses but six members out of the outgoing class of fifteen. The society had its largest membership in 1890,. 61 when fifty-four members were enrolled. Of the class of ’89 all but one member were Sophronians. The first son of an Alumnus to at- tend college was last year a member of Sophronia. Sophronians have no occasion to be ashamed of their membership, but on the other hand they have every reason to be proud of it. Of the first class that was graduated we find the name of Prof. Luther A. Swope. In a “ Muh- lenberg Monthly” of several years ago we came across the statement that Rev. Prof. Revere F. Weidner, of the class of ’69, would be Muh- lenberg’s first D.I). It is needless to chronicle that such has come to pass. Dr. Weidner not only lectures at the college at Rock Island, 111 ., but also at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Chicago. Of the class of ’7 1 we find the name of Pottstown’s well-known minister, Rev. O. P. Smith. Rev. John A. Scheffer, of the class of ’72, has been and is yet a very useful man. At present he is business manager of the “ Church Messenger,” and writes quite a number of articles. The class of ’73 brings with it many prominent Sophronians. Rev. George H. Ger herding through his books, “ The True Way of Salva- tion in the Lutheran Church” and “ New Testament Conversion,” is known not alone within his own church. Rev. Luther D. Roth also wrote several very valuable books — his latest work, “Acadia and the Acadians,” is a very valuable book. Hon. George F. Kribbs, of Clarion, Pa., was the first Muhlenberg Alumnus to become a member of the House of Representatives. Rev. Julius A. J. Zahn, deceased, at one time a Prof, at Thiel College, and Prof. Francis D. Raub are well known as efficient teachers. Rev. George G. Kunkle is known not only as an able preacher, but also as a teacher. The class of ’74 brings with it two very prominent lawyers — Hon. Milton C. Henninger and James L. Sehaadt, Esq. Rev. William A. Passavant, Jr., of the class of ’75, is known as the Home Missionary Agent of the General Council. He has done most excellent service for his church, and is a gifted pulpit orator. Rev. Prof. John Sander, 62 of the class of ’77, is a Prof, in the college at St. Peter, Minn. Rev. C. L- Fry, of the class of ’78, is a very popular minister. Henry H. Herbst, M. D., of the same class, has made a name for himself in his profession. Space does not permit ns to make mention of the many other shining lights. With such a history we feel that we dare quote our motto — “The End Crowns the Work.” ; ; ;rr rv 6 3 © N March 7th, 1883, a meeting was called in the College Chapel for the purpose of organizing a missionary society. March 14th a constitution was adopted, and on March 20th the society went into full operation under the name of “ The Franckean Missionary Society of Muhlenberg College,” with H. J. Kuder as its first Presi- dent. The name was subsequently changed to “ The Francke Mis- sionary Society.” The society manifested much activity, receiving much encouragement from such men as Drs. Sadtler, Richards and Spieker. A11 open meeting was held on Nov. 5th, 1883. For no known reason this society was discontinued in 1884. On April 19th, 1888, under the influence of Dr. Wackernagel, the present flourishing “ Missionary Society of Muhlenberg College” was organized, with George Gebert as its first president. An interesting and life-sustaining feature to the society is the lecture on missionary work by Dr. Wack- ernagel at every meeting. The society organized and helps to main- tain St. Stephen’s Mission Sunday School in the northwestern part of Allentown; became a member of “The Lutheran Mission and Church Extension Society” by an annual contribution of five dollars ; started a library- of its own ; and contributes frequently towards the support of Western missions. These are only a few of the direct fruits of the society. The society holds an annual open meeting in April which is always largely attended by the public. 64 U. G. Bertolet, President. Prof. Wm.

He died in beauty, like a rose blown from its parent stem ; He died in beauty, like a pearl dropped from some diadem ; He died in beauty, like a lay along a moon-lit lake ; He died in beauty, like the song of birds amid the brake ; He died in beauty, like the snow on flowers, dissolved away ; He died in beauty, like a star lost on the brow of day ; He lives in glory, like a night’s gem set round the silver moon ; He lives in glory, l ike the sun amid the blue of June. There are remedies for all things but death. —Adapted from Carlyee. ® Ow J ur ' serg ® 70 cabemic department • • of • • fjjjul;lenberg C°H e S e Sn ' S5 ' GEORGE T. ETTINGER, Ph.

The following describes the manner in which the spirit of education has been stirred within countless num- bers during the last quarter of a century. Some beautiful Summer day, while the farmer boy is following the plough, sanding the old grey mare’s mouth for fear of balking, entreating her in the name of the green-livered bull-frogs, and silver-tailed skunks, “ to walk a .xhalk line,” he is suddenly accosted by a man who portrays most elab- orately the beauties of an education, gives to him a higher aim for which to strive, and last but not least, describes vividly his duty towards those already upon the highway of education. Awed by the dignity, and well-delivered speech, the boy replies with that simple but very effective answer, the only thing which he has learned and never forgets, “ Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee.” Whereupon he produces a half plug of “ Old Honesty” from the un- known depth of his trouser pocket. With a kind “ Thank you,” and in an undertone, “ You thick-shelled son of a gon-o-plax,” the gentle- man retraces his steps. But his efforts were not all in vain. The boy aroused, returns home, convinces his father, mother, and surrounding neighbors of the necessity of a college education ; and, in a few days dons his duds, shakes the “seeds,” and sallies forth toward the college world. Learning by study must be won, ’Twas ne’er entailed from sire to son. — Gay. 140 -5=1 £) reQm - i @ CERTAIN JUNIOR had a dream the other night which we print, with the hope, that it may do some good. It seems that I was taken eighty years into the future and per- mitted to look back through this maze of years and see the progress the world had attained up to this time. The inventions and achieve- ments which thronged upon me no tongue can tell. Everything had undergone a revolution ; cities were no longer heated by steam or lighted by electricity, this was all done by direct pipe and wire com- munication with the sun. People no longer traveled by rail but were transported over electric wires like the telegrams of old. Students no longer studied for an education but acquired it by inter-caput-electro- injections. In fact, everything seemed changed. No! not quite, but nearly everything. I saw a little building painted drab with beautiful lawns stretch- ing oiit on either side. The edifice was certainly a quaint one and seemed out of place and the front appeared to be blushing continually. In fact, the whole thing seemed to be a pretty good architectural joke. I had not gazed upon it long when slowly there opened a door on its squeaking, rusty hinges and a crowd of seedy little fellows bounded forth and gave a cry that made the welkin ring. ' Soon the lawns were covered by these antedeluvians who amused themselves by play- ing “leap-frog,” “marbles,” “corner-ball, etc. One thing we noticed about their games was that they were not violent and that all things were done up in a systematic, prudential manner. While I paused to watch these harmless amusements a road at- tracted my attention, and with a longing desire I followed it until I came to an open gate, above which were inscribed these words: 142 “Our Illustrious Dead.” I entered and before me lay one of the most beautiful scenes I was ever permitted to behold. Nature had outdone herself. Scattered here and there were tombstones telling their mournful tales, and little mounds bedecked with flowers of every hue. It was a perfect Eden and even Adam was there. Long boughs of intertwining weeping willows waved gently and peacefully over their biers and moaned a continual melancholy dirge. A simple mar- ble slab marked the head of each mound bearing only the name of the departed together with a brief epitaph. This is all that remains to tell the story of each career ; these, too, will soon pass away and those once known to the world will be forgotten forever and forever. I stole pensively through the cemetery and stopping at one of the graves I read these lines: TO THE MEMORY OF FILL LENTZ. Here lies the body of whiskered Lentz Who often longed for death ; So he filled his pipe with “ French Perique” Aud died for want of breath. To the right and not far distant from old Lentz we saw these curious yet descriptive lines : IN HONOR OF ALFRED OLIVER EBERT. Beefsteak when I’m hungry, Lieberman’s when I ' m dry, Ponies when I study, Tombstones when I die. Passing to the opposite side near a little stream which seemed to be murmuring a consolation, I observed a grave in all its loneliness. Upon the tombstone was this inscription: 143 WITH REGARDS TO H. BRANSON RICHARDS. We laid him low in the still cold night, Not a twig moved in the breeze, He only had finished his eighteenth year, Then succumbed to a love disease. Following up the course of the stream I came to a little mound very near the water, in fact, so near that the victim’s feet were almost emerged. There may have been an object in this: TO MARTIN LUTHER, ALIAS DAVY TREXLER. Here I lie ; I cannot do otherwise ; so let me rest. Passing on to the farther end of the cemetery, I observed two graves side by side almost obscured from sight by vines and shrubbery. The name on the first tombstone was almost erased. Here is all that I could make out of it: WITH BEST WISHES FOR POST SCRIPT ULRICH. Here lies the body of Ulrich “ Bib” — He kicked up his heels and off he slid. The other bore these pathetic lines: WARREN J. ELLIS. Whenever you pass this little mound Just kneel and drop a tear ; For here lies one of the tamest pets That the “ Drab House” ever reared. I next went to the opposite side and in one corner there lay a grave covered with lillies and cresses. This was the most striking of all I had yet seen. On top of the tombstone was a little tin box and upon it were these words: “Drop a nickel in the slot.” Underneath 144 the box these words were inscribed (and for all we know may be sug- gestive of some trait of the deceased) : ADAM LAUBENSTEIN RAMER. “ Soon as in the chest the money rings, You ' r soul at once to Heaven springs.” There were many other eloquent and pathetic lines inscribed on as many marble slabs, which, at the time I cannot recall. I returned to the drab-painted little building where all seemed to be hushed in silence. I approached, and pausing in a gloomy corridor,, these solemn, melancholy words fell upon my ear (the tone like the building and the names of the dead seemed familiar — yet it was only a dream) : I’ve just come back from the old graveyard Near the old bridge on the hill, Where my schoolmates rest in their last long sleep, ’Neath the flowers and the vines so still. It’s the only place left for me to go, When the sun lias set in the West, And I think of “ the boys” as they used to be, While they slumber in their last, sweet rest. It seems to me as I wander ’mong the the tombs, That I hear their sweet voices in the wind ; That I see their spirits crowding round the bar As if about to “ set ’em up agin.” ' Then I know my day is drawing to an end, And Death is looking in my face ; But I’m ready to go, for I’m lonesome down here, And I want to join my schoolmates in their last boat race. Some night when the owl is hooting in the tree With the whip-poor-will warbling hard by, There’ll be weeping in the building on Walnut Street there While they place “ Fatty” Trafford in the abbey for to dry. Then a new-made grave in the College abbey there With the flowers and tbe vines growing ’round, Will show the younger students strolling ’mong the tombs That I’ve gone to join 11 the boys” in their Happy Hunting Ground. !45 ‘Ranh Jjonsense. s And oh, for the thought that has never been thought By the man who had never a brain ! And oh, for the pleasure that never was caught By the man who had never a pain ! And oh, for the student who never denied That he never had made a bad break ! And oh, for the athlete who never had tried To outdo anyone for a great steak ! And oh, for the time that has never been spent By the man who never played pool ! And oh, for the man who would never repent Of the word that he spoke as a fool ! And oh, for the things that never were learned By the one who had never a horse ! And oh, for the man who never has spurned To derive all true things from their source ! And oh, for the student who never does swear At his English in Latin or Greek ! And oh, for the student who never does share The vain pleasures that so many do seek ! And oh, for the time that has never been lost By him who has never been late ! And oh ! for the student whose small average has cost His euterance within the golden gate ! -$} College favorite. @ TT T is a well established fact, that a college or university, which can boast of a dormitory, should feel proud. Our college can boast of one, and therefore feels proud; and her students, who nightly slumber in this sacred edifice, have learned to love and honor a crea- ture, which deserves mention. Freshmen may well boast of their belligerent contemplations; Sophomores, of their power of ingenuity; Juniors, of their extreme dignity ; and Seniors, of their superiority over all their followers. But our hero by far surpasses all these advantages. Vigilance and perse- verance are his ameliorating characteristics. His nocturnal parades are his desirable qualities. His actions must please us. While we slumber, he is up and doing; while we perform our daily duties, he is in dreamland. Had he wings, he could be termed an angel. He is kind-hearted, and he never shrinks from duty. While a Freshman prides himself on his artistic accomplishments, our pet scorns such ar- rogance, and calmly proves his superiority by gnawing the skin red, instead of painting the town green. He accompanies us to recitation, and chapel services, proving his desire for religion and educational ad- vantages. His number increases. If one gives up the ghost, in a brief space of time, two of his spirits are seen hovering around his corpse. Metaphorically speaking, he attends his own funeral. And now, since the undertaker has this hint, let us ask one question : Have we not reason to eulogize this loving and ever faithful animal of Muhlenberg College — the cimex lectularius ? 147 Paroby on “X}o, Comrabes.” Ho ! my room-mate, hear the signal Waving up on high, Recitations now appearing, Chapel time is nigh. Chorus.- Ring the bell, old janitor, Sound the signal still, Freshmen flunking, Seniors cheering, B}- thy grace they will. See the mighty host advancing, Scipio leading on ; Hear the seedy Freshmen singing, Chapel time is gone. See the door at Davy’s swaying, Hear old Mattie’s call, In dear Wacky’s room we triumph, Bauman ruins all. Fierce and long the battle rages, And no help is near, Ponies, we have left behind us, Cheer my schoolmates, cheer ! 148 Conclusion. 1 - HIS page affords us the greatest pleasure of them all. Our work is at last completed and the little book goes forth to meet that Great Mogul of the nineteenth century — criticism. The idea of issuing a College Annual was not thought of until “ft very late m the college year. Consequently, the matter has not re- ceived that due preparation and consideration which we desired it should. We have learned, that to publish a book of this nature is a matter of no small difficulty and that it is not to be struck off by the minds of ordinary men in a careless moment. The book has received our untiring efforts — inexperienced though we be. And still, as we leaf over page after page of the finished work, a feeling of dissatisfaction steals over us; for there are places which we would like to improve. We console ourselves, however, with the belief that our readers are of that number who will read the Ciarla, searching for its merits and not its shortcomings. We feel that this work would not be complete without a few words of gratitude to those of the staff who were so untiring in their efforts to make the book a success. First, then, to our Artist, Mr. Rick, for his excellent cuts pro- duced on so short a notice and for his support in the literary work, we extend many thanks. To our Business Manager, Mr. Mosser, who labored so incessantly to make the financial part of the Ciarla a success, we express our deepest gratitude. 149 For the cuts of President Seip and ex-Presidents Muhlenberg and Sadtler we are indebted to Rev. S. E. Ochsenford, Editor of the “ Quarter Centennial Memorial Volume. ' ' ' 1 To those of the Associate Editors who so willingly performed all the work assigned to them, and were always ready to aid us with their timely suggestions — among whom Mr. Kercher and Mr. Lichtenwalner deserve especial mention — we owe many thanks. With best wishes for the success of the Ciarla, and with the hope that the custom, now revived, will not die out, we close this, the first volume. The Editor-in-Chief. 150 goarb of gbitors. E. T.
