Preface. « ts T HE CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED upon attaining the dignity of Juniors also assumed the burdensome task of publishing The Ciarea. This task is now completed. Of each year’s Ciarla Board there is expected something better and more pleasing than the product of its predecessors. We have always been recognized as being original, and it is with much pride that we present to our College friends this year’s annual. We assure you that we are not radically different from our predecessors. The usual space and mention has been given to the various classes, fraternities, literary societies, musical associations, and general athletics, which makes The Ciakla valuable as a book of reference. We have diverted, however, from certain lines at our own risk. A rather bold step has been taken by us in changing the shape of this annual, which we trust will be to the advantage of the reader. During the past year a few clubs and organizations have made their appearance. Due mention is given to these in order that the reader may have a clearer knowledge of College life. It is the idea of the editors that this annual shall contain nothing that is unwholesome and untruthful. In looking over these pages the reader will notice that such has been fully carried out, in order that a first-class college annual may be produced. Whether we have succeeded or not we leave to 3mur decision. We lay down our pens with a feeling of regret, for in the preparation of this annual we have spent many pleasant hours. Therefore, with due gratitude to the contributors of the different classes who so amiably helped us in its production, we now, in the name of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and our Alma Mater , launch this frail bark upon the sea of literature with the hope that it will find a safe haven in the hearts of its readers. 9 Class of 1900. ,1 ' clu ' ii Ik ' iIU 5 ' trdicn.

A ND as I gazed steadfastly, I beheld a vast city surrounded by an exceeding high wall, before which flowed a wide and troubled river. And quiet did reign in that land, nor were there any that came and went, for the city enclosed them, and they which were within could not depart ; albeit, a man of goodly years did pace to and fro before the gates of the city, and in his hand he bore a mighty key . His beard was as a flowing raiment, and the end thereof did sweep the lacings of his girdle, while above his head did poise a “ hoop ” with startling nicety. And his face grew dark as with deepening scowl he gazed intently at the further side of the river ; moreover, he did finally seat himself on a stone by the gate and stroke his wings with impatience as he continued his gaze at the river. And as my eyes followed his, I perceived a man battling the waves and approaching with steady stroke to where the first did sit, and behold, even as I looked, he reached the shore and did approach unto the gate. Then was the elder of the twain wroth, and with a mighty shout, he did arise from his stone and draw near to the stranger. And he said unto him, Prithee, wherefore thy haste? Thine actions are unseemly in one so youthful. Wist ye not that none may enter save by my leave? But the stranger answered, Yea, my liege, except where one’s rank and station doth warrant it. And he drew forth a standard, the colors of which were moss-green and white. Then did the elder man draw back with respectful mien, but ere the strauger could enter, he stretched forth his hand and restrained him saying, Thy credential is, indeed, mighty, and were I but assured that thou liadst come by it honestly, I would 3 1 Hist, did interpose the stranger, Give ear to what I say, and then But why this prelude? Know ye well, that I am of that body of men, famous by reason of their deeds, some of whom have preceded me, the rest of whom will verily follow. Then did the elder of the twain answer, Of a truth, thy words are brave enough, and eouldst thou but recount the several doings of thy famous order, I Peradventure, thy task belittles thy dignity by reason of its easiness. My noble order is known as the Class of ' 99, and had its origin within the quiet chambers of a place where learning undefiled abode. The name thereof was Muhlenberg, and out of gratitude for our conception we did straightway drag to earth the proud spirit of them who stood above us (in age rather than in rank ) by a shameless defeat in the manly game of foot-ball. Our subsequent sleigh-ride and theatrical performance stands too fresh in the memory of all to admit of detail. The year that followed witnessed a victory of equal proportions in the same game, against the class that dared presume to follow in our steps. The banquet which followed was worthy of the event. In the next year our challenge to fight the stronger of the two younger classes produced panic in their ranks, and we straightway reveled in their cowardice. The quality of our College annual atoned for the existence of such suckling babes in our midst, while our oratorical contest not only immortalized us, but also the institution we represented. As he paused, the elder of the twain cowered, but stood irresolute as a man fighting in the face of defeat. Then did the anger of the stranger burst forth, and in loud tones did he shout, “ Made virtute! " And behold, the aged man sank back upon his stone ; the gates of the city opened from within, and the stranger entered amid great rejoicings. And as I still gazed, my ears did catch the faint, yet melodious, strains of “ Rah, Rah, Rah ! Rah, Rah, Rhine! ’Ninety-nine, Muhlenberg!” F. Nathan Fritch. 32 Dreka .

To Alma Mater « « In the fertile Lehigh region, Stands a college old and gray, And her name is known to mankind From her students’ grand array. Fair the verdure that surrounds thee ; Green the grass that decks thy feet ; Oh ! the joy of thy remembrance In the twilight soft and deep. As I sit this wintry evening, Pleasures bring but vain regrets ; Muhlenberg, my Alma Mater, Can I e’er thy name forget ? All my fancy clings around thee, Holding me in its embrace ; Thus my thoughts shall never cease to Wander to thee, dear old place. At the coming of the season, When the trees bring forth their leaves, And the earth with all its glory, Gives us joys and naught to grieve, — How I fain would ramble Once again beneath thy trees, Dreaming dreams and sweetest fancies, Borne to me on Fancy’s breeze. 36 O NE clay as I was walking upon the beach of an island in the Bahama group, I noticed some object far out upon the waves. This object gradually approached ; and, as it came nearer, I thought that it had the form of a cask. I waited, thinking that I might make a startling discovery of something, and that I might by that means see my name in the daily papers (which is at present the ambition of all young men, to which rule I am no exception). At last the object was thrown by the waves upon the beach. I hastily proceeded to satisfy my curiosity. Upon investigation I found that the object had a cylindrical shape, that the height was one foot and the diameter of the base about six inches, and that the cylinder was water-tight. The material of which the cylinder was made may have been tin, but of this I am not certain. I wished to open the box (for such we may call it) carefully ; and, since I had not the tools necessary for that, I took the box along home. I endeavored to smuggle the box into my office without my wife’s notice ; but, as I was entering the house, the box fell and betrayed me. My wife seeing it, said : “ Now what are you bringing home? You are always bringing home something nonsensical.” Well, I was accustomed to such words ; therefore I said nothing but beat a hasty retreat to my office. Having arrived safely at my retreat I locked myself in, and then set to work. I very carefully opened the box with a very sharp knife. Inside there was a roll of parchment wound upon a piece of broomstick about ten inches long ; this was covered with writing. Eagerly I unrolled this. The writing was in English and very clear. The story was not long ; and here I give it. It will explain itself. 37 “ Whosoever you are who find this, I ask that you see that it is brought before the public. I thank you much if you will do this, though you will receive very little reward for your kindness. But, if you will break the piece of broomstick exactly in the middle, you will find it to be hollow, and you will find therein a paper of directions ; if you follow these you can not fail to find the treasure. ( But this has nothing to do with the story. ) “I was one of the Class of 1900 at a certain institution, called Muhlenberg College. This class made an agreement that no history should be written until all members except one should be dtad ; and then that the survivor should make a few notes of what happened during the time we were at college and submit those for publication. I am the last of the class; men call me the “ last of his race.” I omitted to do my duty ; and now I am about to die. Repentance and remorse drive me to my duty before death ; this is written by the chaplain of the ship upon which I am. 11 While in the Freshman Class we were very noisy, wild, and rude ; ours was by far the worst class in the school. Our great event in this year was our play, called Chronohe croioses, which pleased everyone, and astonished even ourselves. ‘‘The next year was full of excitement for us. Among our achievements we defeated our rivals, the Freshmen, in a contest called foot-ball, thereby gaining the enmity of those dear little fellows. We gave them rules and advice by the score, which they took with strong objections. During this year we enjoyed a banquet at a city named Reading (I have enjoyed reading of it since). Berks County turkey was the best part of the banquet; everyone was pleased to discuss it. We spent an afternoon in that city ; we spent our time in visiting all public places, the best of which was the Girls’ High School (I wonder whether it still exists). The memories of that still linger in my mind. The city seemed glad to have us ; and everyone said that we were the best class of college students that had ever banqueted at Reading (and there were many). We returned to find our rooms turned inside out by our naughty Freshmen ; but the chaos was soon restored to order. The Freshmen must be punished ; this was done when they took a sleigh-ride. ‘‘That Sophomore year passed; we came back in September of 1898 to find ourselves Juniors. We then numbered eighteen. Our numbers were small ; but we always preferred quality to quantity. Junior year was pleasant to us, with one exception — the death of one of our professors, dearly beloved by all of us. During this year we published our college annual, which was a great success. “ There were so few men in our class that we received a great deal of individual training. The law for this was known as the Faculty’s Law or the Lex Facultatis. As the number decreases , the individual training increases. At the time this did not please us ; but later we were grateful for all favors received. Our motto was ‘ Leben heiszt Streben ; ’ and we tried to live up to it. 38 “ My mind is wandering. I can not remember what happened during our Senior year, nor do I know what happened to each of our members after graduation. (And, too, that was not to be a part of this history. ) What I do know is, that all are dea d save me ; and that I shall die in a few moments. “ I have asked the chaplain to put this in some water-tight vessel, and to throw that overboard. The ship will not return to our country for several years ; and this ought to be published as soon as possible. Therefore I despatch this cylinder to land by the safe conveyance of wind and tide. I pray you to comply with the request of a dying man. Trusting that you will do this, I die in peace.” Thus ran this strange story, and thus it ended. I obeyed his request. I also found the treasure. May the bones of this man rest peacefully in his watery grave ! Robt. C. Horn. History as published in one of the periodical in the year igjo. 39 Class Song. c c Juniors !

One year has made a marvelous change in the ranks, in the history, and in the spirit of the class. We have sailed through the troubled waters of indifference into those of unity and common interest. The scene has changed. Our Freshman year closed its history with that memorable event, the Freshman Play. The committees worked hard to make it a success, and an honor to the class and institution. A success it certainly was, and the audience which filled the opera house were not sparing in their expressions of satisfaction and words of congratulations. We beat them all, was the verdict, the very thing for which we were striving. Never will we forget the hours spent in rehearsing, the sham battles, and especially the full-dress rehearsals the last few evenings. One occurrence must be noted before we proceed : the display of 1900’s banner in the last act. This was an embarrassing moment for 1900, to see their class emblem displayed on an ass, whilst the Freshies were singing their class song and defying the “ Sophs” to regain their much-prized banner. When the school term opened last September, we found our ranks had suffered considerably in numbers. As the usual custom is, we dropped more than we gained. Only lately we were delighted to have return to our ranks the only soldier boy at Muhlenberg. They are endowed with good material and add greatly to the class standing. We also found that the new Freshman Class was enormous in size. They seemed to be peaceably inclined. They 43 gave us very little trouble to keep them within Freslimanic limitations. To test their aggressive spirit we blocked the hallway one morning and dared them to force their way through to their class-room ; but the “ Freshies ” did not dare, and they paced the hall mopishly until higher authority showed them the way. These little ups and downs that happened between these two classes are not to be compared with the annual battle of brawn. Remembering our last year’s defeat, we swore that the victory must be ours. We entered the practices with spirit and a determination to win. Some wise heads desired to inform us that the odds were against us ; but we found the solution to the game by a score of 20 to o in our favor. After a few minutes’ play we had them at our mercy, and the joke on the Freshmen was that we knew all their signals a day or two before the game. The victory was appropriately celebrated. To cap the climax, we had our fun when the “Freshies” were about to take their sleigh-ride. Having fortunately learned of their intentions, we decided to give them a royal send-off, a pill or two of snow. While anxiously awaiting developments, within a square of their starting-point, at Fifth and Gordon streets, a quartet of Freshmanic dignitaries unintentionally stepped into our path. They passed us in peace, when a challenge, “ Ah, they wont steal any one of us,” greeted our ears. Before the words were barely spoken, the young Democratic Chairman of Lehigh County was in the grapple of the wily “Sophs.” His three friends attempted to assist him and to scare the “ Sophs” with revolver talk. After a fruitless tussle they abandoned Teddy, and he was hustled toward the College. In the meantime Teddy’s classmates came to his assistance, but not until he had been carried almost half a mile, almost to the College campus. A free-for-all tussle ensued which lasted for fully half an hour. No one minded the snow, and blood stains could be seen the next morning. We were outnumbered three to one, yet they could not release their man. Finally, by common consent of all, that the Freshmen might have a royal send-off, Teddy was released. The result was torn clothes, a copious flow of perspiration, a heavy cold, a few hard feelings, and something to talk about for a few days. Thus end the great events in the history of 1901. As a class we have followed the footsteps of former classes in what little we have done. Whatever we may be in other respects, we leave it to the world to judge us as they see us. George K.

I N presenting the history of ' 02 to the world, the fact that as yet it covers but the period of one year does not diminish the task very much. In the first place, modesty is one of the predominant characteristics of our class. We acknowledge that we are Freshmen ; so were the preceding classes at one time. This fact should be sufficient to elicit your forbearance. We assembled at our Alma Mater on the first of September, 1898, and, after greeting many old and making many new acquaitances, were summoned to the opening exercises in the chapel. It was a day that will remain verdant in the memories of all. Were we not free from the chains of Prepdom ? Were we not on the threshold of a student’s career? Still, when we met the contemptuous gaze of the Senior, the pitying glance of the Junior, and the jeers of the “ Sophs,” there seemed to be trouble (not music) in the air. However, we resolved to meet it like men — beg pardon, Freshmen is the word. That we might not lack in class discipline we decided to elect class 47 officers. There were some amusing circumstances connected with that election. In selecting a President we had no trouble ; but it seemed everybody wanted to be Treasurer ; however, we were careful to appoint a good, steady fellow there. When we balloted for M onitor we all agreed that that office should be held by a “ slugger and it was. Ere a day had passed we were informed that the “ Sophs ” play an important part in Freshman history ; and we have long since made up our minds to believe it. “ Naughty Ones ” could not rest. They shouted, “’Twill never do! We insist that those Freshies shall be called ‘ Naughty Two.’ ’’ It was a Friday, and the “ Sophs ” seemed bent on impeding our progress in physiology. The best plan for so doing, they evidently thought, was to keep us out of the class-room. At any rate, when we reached the stairs theie they were in full possession, grinning, and no doubt comparing themselves to the Greeks at Thermopylae. We speedily arranged our phalanx for attack, confident of victory, when all the fun was spoiled by the appearance of our most worthy President. To us, thus far, the fates hace been propitious. The seers of ’oi predicted defeat for us at foot-ball by a score of no less than 52-0, but by a series of brilliant plays (or misplays, if you please) we managed to keep the score at 20-0. Naturally, the “Naughty Ones’’ say they “did not play foot-ball,’’ and we willingly admit they could not. When Thanksgiving Day came ’02 decided to present Dr. W. with a turkey. So a fine one was procured and secreted in one of the rooms. The “ Naughty Ones’’ again resolved to spoil our little game. They marched to the room in full force and demanded admittance, and about the same time the bird mysteriously disappeared out of the window. The intruders, after a few suitable words of welcome, were admitted and the search began. They finally concluded that either we had eaten it ourselves or locked it in the trunk. Very foolish conclusions ! The gobbler was safe at his destination, happy as a lark ; but, then, poor fellow ! he did not know that he was soon to be a subject for dissection. As is customary, the Freshmen embraced the first opportunity to take a sleigh-ride. Flowever, several obstacles had first to be surmounted. It was necessary to meet the “Sophs’’ in a pugilistic encounter, but this served only to add enjoyment to the affair. The effect ’or desired was lost entirely. From day to day important occurrences are being added to our history, but to dwell upon these at length is against our principles. We therefore prefer to close this account abruptly, assuring those who watch us with interest that we shall endeavor to prove a credit to Muhlenberg and the pride of the public. Russel B.

The happiest moments of youth’s fleeting hours, We’ve passed ’neatli the shade of thy time-honored walls ; And sorrows as transient as April’s brief showers, Have clouded our life in our dear College halls. And when life’s golden autumn with winter is blending, And brows, not so radiant, are furrowed with care ; When the blightings of age on our heads are descending, With no early friends all our sorrows to share ; Oh ! then as in memory backward we wander, And roam the long vista of past years adown, On the scenes of our student life often we ' ll ponder, And think of thee, Muhlenberg, in Fair Allentown. 74 When once in their fetters thou art bound, Then all its secrets clear are found.

FOUNDED 1867. ts ts T HE Sophronian Literary Society was organized thirty-two years ago, by a few students who were desirous of improving themselves in literary and forensic ability. Notwithstanding many trials and difficulties, the society has prospered and at present is in an excellent condition, having more members enrolled than at any previous time. There are sixty-four members in Sophronia who support the “White and Blue,” and are ever mindful of their motto, 11 The End Crowns the Work.” The hall in which the meetings are held is on the third floor of the College building, facing the campus on the north. It it handsomely furnished with antique oak furniture and heavy damask curtains. During the past year a Story Clark piano was purchased by means of the voluntary offerings of the loyal active and alumni members. Connected with the society is a library of two thousand choice books of fiction, science, and poetry, which the society, by frequent additions, endeavors to keep abreast of the times. During the past year two receptions were held, one in honor of the graduating class and the other in honor of the new members received. They were the most important social functions conducted by the students during the term. The meetings of the society are well attended, and great interest is manifested in the rendition of the program. The new members are very active in their support of Sophronia, and there is no doubt that her future will be in safe hands. 81 Officers of the Sophronian Literary Society.

We can not walk, we rush ; and not content With hours, we split the minutes, here, to-day ; While far across the seas — too far away ! — The people laugh and love as nature meant. There the old clocks, that past to present lent To look the future i n the face, still stay To point with one lone hand the hours, and say, “ Speed slowly, lest thy time be but ill-spent ! ” When man was younger and the old clocks new, Did these not say, “ Know ; gather all thy powers, And be not hasty, lest thou be untrue?” Did money-makers hoard those seconds, too ? Who cares? — The grand Old Masters made the towers And clocks to mark but full immortal hours. 1 83 Euterpean Literary Society. FOUNDED 1867. « ts • T HE history of the Euterpean Literary Society is such that any member of Euterpea may well contemplate it with pride. Her motto, “ Watch and Advance,” has not been a mere name to her but the stern watchword by which, during the past years, each member has guided his life. The members have watched so that the golden opportunities of life might not pass by unnoticed. They have, with invincible determination, advanced along the road that leads to earthly renown and heavenly reward. The color of Euterpea is “ Blue.” It is this color that forms the field on which are placed the stars of our national flag. Even as those stars rest upon their field of blue, so is our national honor dear to Euterpea’s sons. When the call to arms rings throughout the land, the patriotic sons of Euterpea hasten to enroll themselves beneath their country’s streaming banners. The members of the Euterpean Literary Society have taken an honorable part in the past history of Muhlenberg College, and as her future history gradually unfolds itself, the names of Euterpeans shall be found thickly dotting its honored pages.

HOLMES. O Poet, there’s no twilight in your life : For you the morning ever brightly glows ; You are not half the age you please to claim ; You’re only thirty, not a summer more. Perennial spring-time lingers in your heart, If one may judge you by your airy pen Whose flowers of fancy bloom but never fade. Most people claim they’re younger than the}’ are, And ape the pleasant ways of lusty youth, Even to the vainest of frivolities, To give their mimicry a truthful guise ; But you aSect great age and snowy hair Which to you do not properly belong. In you, it seems, there is a great big boy All bent for sport upon his grandsire’s staff, And in his wig, as fleecy as a cloud, Rollicking through a noonday masquerade. But if you are as old as you pretend, And those white hairs are yours, why then you are Just like the r. se-tree at my window-sill, Which is all gnarled and bent with changing years ; But which bears roses still as beautiful, As red and luscious and as sweetly perfect, As those that clothed it in its earliest spring. 86 87 Members of the Missionary Society DS99.

It is supplied with the leading periodicals and magazines published. The members have keys to the room, to which they can go at all times, except during study hours. The society was organized in the year 1868, and has been of great benefit to the students during the past years. Any student or teacher of the College may become a member by paying a small annual fee. It is very encouraging to state that nearly all the students have connected themselves with the association. History is being made every da} ' . Every student should endeavor to keep abreast of the times and be posted on current events. It is not said that a student should spend hours in reading everything a newspaper contains. This would be deleterious, as newspapers contain some articles which are of a sensational character. He should, however, read the articles of state and national importance. The magazines of to-day contain the latest ideas and thoughts of the leading writers of the age in a clear and condensed form, and should be carefully read. The society will greatly miss the late Prof. Matthias H. Richards, D.D., who was a faithful and energetic worker for its welfare. He was the Secretary since the year 1879, and it was largely due to his efforts that the society has attained such a high standard. 90 Prof J.

MUHLENBERG COLLEGE SEXTETTE. Junior Statistics. Where they come from. Who they are. What they have done. What they will become. This is Arthur G. Beck, who hails from Stone Church, Pa. He is the head of the class, figuratively speaking. Having passed through 19 summers, weighing 135 pounds, and measuring 5 feet 7 inches, he is fully able to wear the robe of a Junior. Arthur is a decided brunette. He received his preparation at Muhlenberg Academic Department, entered College in the Fall of 1896, and thus, being one of its first members, he has always been loyal to the class. He made quite a hit in that famous Freshman play, “ Chronoheteroioses ” as Jack Undergrad His nickname is “ Spielkannnerad.” In politics he is a staunch Republican. Attends the Lutheran Church and sometimes finds the way to chapel. A 7)4 hat adorns his head, and the same number shoes (dis)grace his feet. He is taking the Classical course, but will in the near future study Medicine. ARTHUR G. BECK. Frederick Rudolph Bousch, whose beaming countenance is here pictured, lives at Allentown, Pa. He is 19 years of age, weighs 150 pounds, and measures 5 feet 8 inches. Frederick is a blonde. He was graduated from the Allentown High School 1896, and entered College in the Fall of 1896. He has always been alive with class spirit, and is ever ready to further class interests. Is a great supporter and promoter of athletics. His skirt dancing as one of “ The Miss Jeanette” sisters in “ Chronoheteroioses” was quite a great success. In politics he is a staunch Republican. Attends the Lutheran Church, and chapel some- times. (?) A 7)4 hat and No. 7 shoes are found sheltering his both extremities from the weather. His nicknames are many, being a member of the “ Big Four.” He is taking up the Classical course, and has not fully made up his mind what profession he will follow. Some say medicine, but he says, 11 Time will tell. " FREDERICK R. BOUSCH. 142 EI.MER I). S. HOVER Kind friends, behold ! Elmer David Schuler Boyer, of Vera Cruz fame, 24 years of age, weighs 145 pounds, and measures 5 feet 8 inches, a sturdy Bryanite and a good Lutheran, now greets you. He received his preparation at Perkiomen Seminary, Kutztown State Normal School, and entered College in the Fall of 1897. He has had four years’ practice at teaching school. (Woe unto the scholars.) Elmer is the busiest man at College ; he really has more business than Bill Nye’s grandfather. He never attends chapel as he wishes to save his voice for a congregational choir to which he belongs. He is a firm supporter of woman suffrage. He is papa of 1900 because he has at last planted above his upper lip a few wild hair resembling a mustache. A No. 7 2 hat is found placed upon those miscut locks, and he also takes pride in his No. 8_F; shoes. Ministry will be his calling, and his mode of swearing “ By Gum ” will cease. George R. Deisher, who here appears, hails from Topton, Berks County. George is a decided brunette, measuring 5 feet 10 inches, weighing 150 pounds, and is 23 years of age. He prepared at Kutztown Normal School and entered College in the Fall of 1896. George has always been a quiet but very willing- worker. These qualities are seen in his society and class work. He is a Lutheran and a verv regular attendant at chapel. In politics he is a Republican. His shoes are No. 8, while his hat is equal in value. Ministry will be his calling, for which he is especially fitted on account of his quiet and unassuming ways. He was a grand success in “ Chronoheteroioses " as Archimedes Fahrenheit McKepheley, Ph.C., A.Y.P. GEORGE R. DEISHER 143 FREDERICK I„. ERB. The pleasant smile of Frederick L. Erb now greets you. He hails from the ice-clad hills of Slatington, and is a nineteen-year-old blonde. His height is reckoned at 5 feet 6 inches, while his mind is weightier than his body, which is 120 pounds. He was graduated at the Slatington High School and entered College in the Fall of 1896. “ Scripsy,” as he was christened by that illustrious corps in “ Chronoheteroioses, ” is never without a smile for all. He is the son of a Lutheran clergyman, and is a regular attendant at chapel. His hat and shoe numbers together make 14. In politics he is a staunch Republican. His aim is to become a professbr, and the class has great hopes that some day he may hold the presidency of some university. This is Charles Krauth Fegley whose smiling face you now have the extreme pleasure of viewing. “Charley,” or “ Feg,” was “ born and bred” in old Mechanicsburg, where the meadow grass is blue. He has just cast his first Republican vote, weighs 135 pounds, and is 5 feet 4 inches tall. He received his preparation at Dickinson Preparatory School, and entered College in the Fall of 1896, bringing with him many college tricks and schemes which have made “ 1900” so famous. He is styled “ the founder of the class,” and has ever since shown his appreciation for the same. His perseverance and ingenuity has made the success of “ Chronoheteroioses ” what it was. He is very well known around College and in town on account of his genial and happy disposition, which he showers upon all. Being the son of a Lutheran clergyman, he expects to follow the same calling. His hair is black and his eyes blue. He wears a No. 7 hat and No. 6 shoe. He is also a great friend of athletics and a promoter of the same. As chapel organist he attends regularly. He is no doubt duly fitted to his calling, and will make many friends for his pleasant future. Member of the “ Big Four. ” chaki.es k. FEGI.EY. 144 ARTHUR G. FI.KXKR. The person here pictured is Arthur G. Flexer, a blonde of about 24 summers and winters, 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighs 172 pounds. He prepared for College at Muhlenberg Academic Department. Entered College in the Fall of 1896. “ Archie ” is the best all-around athlete at college. He is a great Y. M. C. A. worker, and each Sundaj? afternoon he can be found at their hall in charge of the religious meetings. In religion he is Evangelical, in politics a Republican, and never attends chapel. His feet and hat are numbered with the sun. Ministry will claim him as a follower. We predict that by his powerful voice and brilliant intellect he will win many soids to the Church. Robert R. Fritch, who lives at Allentown, has encountered 19 winters and has reached the height of 5 feet 5 inches. His weight is 1 24 pounds. By a certain X-ray experiment it has been found that his brain is not capable of holding any- thing but Latin and Greek, in which he is very proficient. He was graduated from Allentown High School with first honor. His ability as a president in “ Chronoheteroioses ” as Horatio Clasyc Vallindingham, B.H.D., L.E.M., made for him a good name. He is a Lutheran and a Prohibitionist. Never attends chapel. His musical abilities are set forth in various ways, as he is the Y. M. C. A. pianist, and an organist in a certain church. His aim is to become the president of some college, and it is prophesied that he will found one near Macungie for various reasons. No trace of numbers can be found on his hat or shoes. ROBERT R. FRITCH. 145 R. CHISOLM HORN. Dear reader, the person whose picture now appears is R. Chisolm Horn, or “ Little Horn,” as he is commonly known about the halls. He is a brother to 11 Big Horn,” and was graduated from Charleston High School with first honor and entered College in our Sophomore year. He is the son of a Lutheran clergyman who lives at Reading. He has passed through but 18 years of trials and now measures 5 feet 5 inches and weighs 122 pounds. He is a blonde with light, curly hair ; is a Gold Democrat and an anti-Parkhurst. He is not only noted for his intellectual qualities, but also for his wit and humor. His calling will be the ministry, and there is no doubt that success is in store for him. Alas ! William M. Horn, the noisiest boy at College, rooms on the third floor and can be heard all over the building. He is still young, being a brunette of but 17, weighs 153 pounds, and measures 6 feet in Brunner’s stockings, which he never returned. He is therefore the youngest, tallest, and noisiest man in the class. He was graduated from Charleston (S. C.) High School, and entered College in our Sophomore year. This young man is a Gold Democrat, and a firm believer in woman suffrage. He is the son of a Lutheran clergyman who now lives at Reading, Pa. His chief aim is to become a medical adviser. He tried to promote athletics at school and succeeded miserably. He is chief mogul of the third floor, and must therefore wear a No. 8}4 shoe and a skull cap. His nicknames are “ Bill ” and “ Big Horn.” william m. horn. 146 VICTOR J. KOCH. Victor J. Koch hails from Nazareth, Pa., having passed over twenty beautiful springs, weighing 158 pounds, and measuring 5 feet 7 inches, is duly about to stand the strain of being the only biological student in the Class of 1900. ‘ ' Vic ’ ’ is a decided blonde. He received his preparation at Muhlenberg Academic Department and entered College in the Fall of 1896. He was the first president of the class, and has ever since shown his appreciation for the class. He figured very greatly in “ Chronoheteroioses ” as a true college sport. He wears a numberless class hat and his shoes are of equal value. In politics is a Republican, and is a good Lutheran. Attends chapel regularly ; has a sweet tenor voice ; is terribly missed when he is absent. He will study medicine, and there is no doubt within the next decade he will be a shining mark for his Alma Mater. He will practice at Bethlehem. Behold ! Paul G. Krutzky hails from Philadelphia, together with all its peculiar traits and characteristics, and entered our fold in the Sophomore year. It is considered a certain something 23 years old, 5 feet 5% inches in height, and weighs 1 12 pounds. It is noted for its marked resemblance to a human being, and has been designated by scientists and psychologists as a ministerial student. It has many admirers of its walk. It came with private preparation, fitting it for most anything of little value. Its head measures eight in the hat line, and its feet share equal honors. It is of German extraction and is very proficient in die deutsche Sprache. It has also gone so far as to compose German poetry. It attends the Lutheran church and is a Ouayite. It is most generally called “ Krutz.” PAUU G. KRUTZKY. 147 FRANKLIN S. KUNTZ Franklin S. Kuntz, who hails from Freeland, originally entered College in 1892, but after an absence of a few years reentered the class in our Sophomore year. His renown dates back to 23 years ; he weighs 155 pounds and is 5 feet 8 inches tall. His hair is dark, his eyes black, and is a staunch Republican. He is the son of a Lutheran clergyman, and expects to follow teaching as his profession. He received his preparation at the Hazleton High School and Muhlenberg Academic Department. He is a great friend of athletic sports and a promoter of the same. Captain of the class foot-ball team in 1898. He is a member of the “ Big Four,” and has ” Guckenheimer ” as a nickname. The future will find him a professor at some female college, as Vassar. These are the best wishes for him to such ends. A No. 8 hat embraces his cranium and a No. 7 dancing pump is his greatest desire. A great friend of dancing. An attendant at chapel. This, kind friends, is Raymond W. Lentz, who lives in Allentown, Pa. He has already passed through 20 years of joy and sorrow, weighs 138 pounds, and measures 5 feet 10 inches. His preparation was presented to him at Muhlenberg Academic Department. He is a very accommodating young man to the opposite sex, who sometimes cause his heart to break. He is a great friend of sleep, has the best record at college, and open for competition at all times. His eyes and hair are dark. In religion he is a Reformed and in politics a great Quayite. His head is covered with a No. 7, while his shoes are of all sizes and shapes. His appearance as one of the “Miss Jeanette Sisters,” in their skirt dancing in “ Chronoheteroioses ” was a grand success. He is a member of the ” Big Four,” and has “ Gucken ” as a nickname. He will practice law at Carlisle, Pa. Does not attend chapel. RAYMOND V. LENTZ. 148 Vide ! Edgar C. Statler, who lives at Allentown, who prepared at the Muhlenberg Academic Department, and who lately cast his first Democratic vote. He weighs 160 pounds on a hayscale and measures 5 feet 6 inches. He is a brunette, with extra long hair covered by a 7 hat, and has short legs whose ends are feeted with number sevens. “ Serape ” is his by-word and “ Dabby ” is his nickname. His fame in art has lately arisen. “ Dabby ” is conversant in Chinese and Spanish. He expects to become a medical missonary so that he may fulfill the prophecy that Muhlenberg should prosper until the sun would not shine unless it shone upon a Muhlenberg alumnus. He was a prominent figure in “ Chronoheteroioses. ” The picture of Harvey L. Straub now claims your attention. He was “ born and bred” in Eehighton. He is a blonde, 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 145 pounds, and 23 years of age. He prepared for College at Muhlenberg Preparatory Department. 1 ‘ Stribbers ” is a great singer and an excellent violinist, and on account of these qualities is a great favorite with the opposite sex. His hat and shoes, which are of equal value (7), are always very neat. He is a Lutheran, a Republican, a regular attendant at chapel, and a good Sunday-school worker. He figured very greatly in “Chronoheteroioses.” His calling will be the ministry, and success is waiting for him. He will live at Allentown in the future. HARVEY t,. STRAUB. KDGAR C. STATI.KK U9 LEWIS S. TRUMP. See ! See ! Lewis S. Trump, a Berks Countian, hailing from Chartellsville. He has light hair and gray eyes, is 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs 148 pounds, and is 24 years of age. He prepared for College at Kutztown Normal School, and after teaching a few years entered during our Sophomore year. Lewis is a hard worker and takes special interest in the study of Latin. He has been elected Editor-in-Chief of The Muhlenberg on account of his exceptional literary attainments. Is a Lutheran, a Democrat, an attendant at chapel, and takes great interest in Sunday-school work, and no doubt will make a good shepherd for his flock when once ordained as a minister. His cap is No. 7 and his feet are made to suffer in No. 6 shoes. His nickname is “ Pope Pius III.” Abraham B. Verger, whose likeness you are not allowed to look upon for various personal reasons, is the ‘‘ Mister ” of his class. After working several years at the printing trade, he prepared for College at Muhlenberg Academic Department and entered College in the Fall of 1896. He is about 26 years old, and is not very social or talkative so the writer must be brief. He is a good singer, a Presbyterian, a Prohibitionist, and a believer in woman suffrage. He intends following teaching and, no doubt, will soon be heard of as a professor in Latin or Greek in some large university. “ Aby ” is his nickname. ' 50 Departed Classmates. ts ts Claude R.

" 156 The Scientific Culture Demanded by Modern Life. By Prof. S. C. Schmucker, D.D., ’S2. A MONGST human institutions certain naturally tend to become conservative, others to become radical. The first prevent society from running off at a tangent, the second, from getting into ruts. Both are absolutely necessary to the stability of society. If the radical tendency were to prevail, society would work its own destruction in useless efforts to improve itself. If the conservative forces were to prevail, society would remain at a standstill while its environments slowly changed, and thus the correspondence between them would be lost. Amongst the most conservative of all human institutions is education. Here the fathers teach the children, and are rarely open to lessons from them Accordingly, here is one of the places in which there is the greatest tendency to undue regard for the elder times. It is wise that education should be conservative. Teaching is autocratic and nothing but respect for the past and fear of provoking opposition prevent many teachers from going into wild vagaries. It is none the less true, however, that education may readily be too conservative. When the environment has definitely changed, the scheme of education must change to fit it or the people and the schools will be out of touch with each other to the very serious detriment of both. There is no question but that the dominant note of modern civilization is science. Science is about us everywhere. Wide-reaching transformations have come over every branch of manufacture as the result of the application of science. Chemistry has deeply affected the iron industry and positively revolutionized the manufacture of steel. The cinder dump of the old charcoal furnace is to day a profitable ore-pile for the hot-blast anthracite furnace. The metallurgy of silver has so vastly improved that the lead separated from the ore will usually pay the entire cost of operation, leaving the silver a clear profit. The old soap factory is now also the candle factory and the glycerine factory as well. Waste products that previously were thrown away or served to contaminate the manufactured materials are now profitable by-products adding enormously to the income of the manufacturer. It is as the result of the application of science to manufacture that our great slaughtering houses are the i57 sources from which we obtain not only fresh and salted meat, but canned meat and soups, as well as gelatine and pepsin, not to mention the hides, which are now bought almost entirely from our great slaughtering houses, as are also the materials from which glue is made. Commerce has been revivified by this quickening touch. The great iron steamer, whose speed is vastly greater than that of its old-time prototype, is one of science’s greatest triumphs. By it men of all climes are brought into contact each with the foods of all other climes. The life of a modern city is deeply influenced by science in all its relations. The crowding of such vast numbers of men into so small a space has made necessary such hygienic precautions as a century ago would have seemed ridiculous. But it is useless to multiply illustrations. Every one recognizes that, for good or for evil, science dominates modern life, and education must recognize the note and attune itself to it if its voice is not to be discordant in the great chorus of out present civilization. I do not mean by this that everyone must have an education in technical science ; indeed, this has become beyond the possibilities. Any branch of science has advanced sufficiently far to make one corner of it, if carefully studied, the work of a life-time. But the man who claims to have a liberal education must have a genuine hold on the broad fundamental principles. Tacking this, no familiarity with the languages of the ancient world or the philosophies of the mediaeval, can make him a liberally educated man. The college curriculum has long since recognized the claims of the physical sciences. Physics and Chemistry have become an established part of every course. Few educated men lack an appreciation of the more common physical and chemical principles which underlie modern activities. None the less we find it not uncommon to see educated men and women who will live continuously in the same room with a gas or oil stove when there is no flue provided for the escape of the products of combustion. When their attention is called to this fact they simply shrug their shoulders, and exclaim, “ the combustion is perfect,” as if the absence of poisonous gases from our atmosphere were any more necessary than the presence of oxygen. To most of us it came as a shock when Kennan told how he and Frost wrapped themselves up in three blankets and put pillows on their knees to keep out the heat, while crossing one of the plains in the south of Siberia during July. The biological sciences, however, have grown with such wonderful strides that men not immediately concerned in their advancement are inclined to look on them askance. It is for them especially that I now wish to plead. The philosophy of evolution in its various forms has so vitalized these studies as to make them particularly enticing to people of liberal mind. So long as botany was a mere catalogue of the various species of plants that grew upon the earth, nothing could have been more harrowing than its study, unless it might have been a similar study of the animal world. But all this is changed. The master mind of Darwin first effectually taught us what had often been foreshadowed by 158 earlier thinkers. Once the idea became thoroughly prevalent that each of our present species of plants and animals was simply the last term in a long series, a new class of minds settled themselves to the study of living things. In botany one of the most interesting points is to notice what a wealth of forms can be made out of a very few materials. To recognize the leaf not only in all its shapes, but in all the disguises it assumes, whether it be in the varied organs of the flower, the spines of the barberry, the tendrils of the grape, the strange traps of the pitcher plant, or the still stranger traps of the bladder-wort, is a matter of great interest. But beyond this, to recognize the great divisions of plant life ; to see and know the algae on the pools ; the lichens on the trees and rocks ; the mushrooms springing through the mosses ; the mosses on the bank ; the ferns on the knoll ; as well as the higher flowering plants, is a source of great delight. Whether one knows the Latin name is a small matter ; but a speaking acquaintance with all the commoner forms any well-educated man will soon be asked to have. It is in the study of the animal world, however, in which our present education is apt to show its most serious deficiency. The fact that the animal which builds the coral reefs is almost invariably called the coral “ insect ” speaks for itself. The very common practice of speaking of naked caterpillars as green “ worms ” is equally significant. The great types of the animal kingdom are certainly quite as marked as those of the vegetable world, and in many cases they are more obvious. It certainly would seem reasonable that the man of modern education should be able to distinguish clearly between these great types. As we walk along the road every common animal that passes before our eyes ought to fall naturally and easily into its own place. The most common of our four-footed animals are as a rule known to people in general, but it is remarkable how few of our birds are familiar. It would take very little trouble, indeed, for any intelligent observer in a single springtime to make himself acquainted with at least twenty of our native birds. Once learned, a very little exercise would keep these things fresh. A little more trouble would be found with the reptiles and amphibians, and yet even here the matter would not be especially difficult. Four or five snakes, a lizard or two, and a few turtles, would answer nicely for the reptile world. The amphibians could be disposed of with the toad, two or three water frogs, and a tree frog. Most young men are familiar with the more common of our fishes. The insect world with its enormous number of species presents more trouble, but if one had acquaintance enough here to know a dozen of our more common butterflies, a half-dozen beetles, two or three dragon-flies, and the general distinction between bees and wasps, and had a speaking acquaintance with two or three kinds of ants, it would be astonishing how well acquainted this would prove one to be with the insect world. A few spiders would well repay attention. The crab-family has so few representatives that attain any reasonable size in our fresh waters, that the crayfish practically exhausts the list. Lower down than this few animals would prove attractive to the casual observer not interested in or provided with a microscope. Now, if to an acquaintance with such a number of animals one adds an eagerness to catch the relation of these i59 animals to their environment, and the consciousness that the exterior modifications of these animals are almost absolutely the product of their surroundings, one gains an interest in the external world which is a constant source of delight and refreshment. There remains another aspect to this question. Time was, when to believe in evolution was with many men to deny the Creator’s power. That time has now thoroughly passed. With a fairly wide acquaintance amongst evolutionists of ability, men who are helping to solve the problems of zoology, I fail to find a single one who is not a devout Christian. More than this, every one of them is himself in actual relationship with some branch of the Christian Church. With such an acquaintance as I have mentioned with the world of nature, and, of course, not lacking a similar knowledge of the great literatures of the past, whether Latin and Greek, or Saxon, or more modern English and German, and of the great historic trends of human thought, and not forgetting the great world of numbers and their symbols, a man may truly be said to be liberally educated. 160 A Few Words on Literature. ts “ And books, we know, Are a substantial world, both pure and good ; Round these, with tendrils strong as flesh and blood, Our pastime and our happiness will grow.” — Wordsworth. T HE great characteristic of literature, its essential principle, is that it is addressed to man as man ; it speaks to our common human nature ; it deals with every element in our being that makes fellowship between man and man through all ages of man’s history and through all the habitable regions of our planet. Whatever is meant to minister to our universal human nature, either in the nature of the subject or the handling of it, takes its place in some range or other of literature, and nothing else is so entitled. The gradual growth of the mind, the exertions which talent puts forth, the labors of industry, are all subjects closely interwoven with the moral character of a rational and accountable being. It is curious to trace the history of man as he emerges from the state of nature and passes through the successive stages, from mere animal existence to a state of civilization and moral culture. It is equally delightful to behold the effects of learning in its various stages in changing the inward state of mankind, as the refinements of luxury add to their material convenience. The discovery of the use of iron is the first step from savage to civilized life, says the historian. This, however, must be taken in a limited sense ; for there is an internal as well as an external history ; a history of mind as well as matter ; an intellectual civilization distinct from the history of nations, and independent of art. What iron is to the animal nature of man, literature is to the intellectual. The former supplies him with the means of defence, enables him to overcome the weakness of his organic powers, and endues him with factitious strength as useful as that which nature has conferred. The latter preserves the acquisitions of the former, guides its operations, concentrates its usefulness, and makes it possible for him to avail himself of the achievements of genius struggling with the inertness of matter, or bound by the restrictions of ignorance and barbarity. The history of literature is the history of the noblest power of man. The life of a savage presents a sameness which affords but little interest to speculation and confines investigations within narrow limits. The construction of rude implements, the provision of the necessaries of life, the strifes, collisions, and bitter feuds of hostile and ambitious chiefs, lacking in interest, because deficient in incidents, these form the material of the history of nations upon whom science has never beamed nor 161 literature shed its renovating rays. In this material there is no history of the mind, no account of the progress of intellect, further than what is observed in the ingenuity of mechanical contrivance, limited by the ignorance of the properties of things. But the invention of letters, preceded by the mysticism of hieroglyphic symbols, gave a new face to the world, enlarged the subjects of knowledge, and changed man from a mere animal to an intellectual being. The history of literature involves all that is interesting in the history of man. The divine gifts of speech and reason would have been conferred to no purpose unless the monuments of their achievements should have more stability than could exist as they float on the recollections of a single generation. Man’s animal nature might be considered the nobler, because the more permanent part of his being. The structures which his hands have reared, though still subject to the laws of decay, would survive the shocks of ages, while no monument would exist of his immortal spirit, no recollection remain of that which distinguishes him from the inferior order of beings. Age would follow age without witnessing any accession to the fields of knowledge. Tradition, like a ray of light, would vary in its import as it passed from hand to hand, aud one generation would not be enriched by the acquisitions of its predecessor. The invention of letters has made it possible that the acquisitions of one age may be handed down as an inheritance to its successor. But there is another important view to be taken of its influence as it operates on the moral nature of mankind Literature is one of the powers from which the mind of man is to receive culture and discipline. In the construction of implements of defence, in the arrangement of architectural convenience, in the pursuit of the objects of sense, man is superior to some species of the brute creation only as his bodily powers are better adapted to mechanical exertion. The bee, the beaver, and the ant rival the most successful efforts of man in a construction of a habitation adapted to the respective needs of each. But they operate by instinct, — his labors are the suggestions of necessity in conference with inventive powers. It is a curious investigation to trace the gradations from destitution to comfort, from comfort to convenience, from convenience to ease, and the moral influence of each upon the character of mankind. It will be found that the vaunted nobleness of the savage nature is but a chimera of prejudice, and a wrong deduction taken from a solitary example. The history of literature will abundantly show that such instances are but the taper in the dungeon, which appears the brighter from the darkness by which it is surrounded. Laws owe their permanency to their consistency ; and their consistency is mainly to be attributed to a wise consideration of the needs of society, deduced from the operation of cause and effect upon the mind. When history, therefore, is silent, their deductions must be made from a limited view of society ; and like all conclusions drawn from various views, are likely to be wrong. Literature gives a tongue to history, and provides it with a distinct utterance. Literature makes the past a monitor of the present, and the present a guide to the future. 162 The Educated Young Man. By Rev. Fkanki.in F. Fry, ' 85. S IX hundred and fifty years ago England laid the foundation of her two leading universities, which have sent forth great scholars and priests and statesmen, whose fame is the historic heritage of their own country, and whose deeds have been part of the history of every land and sea. During all that long period, reaching back two hundred and fifty years before it was ever dreamed that this great hemisphere existed ; before the world knew that it was swinging in the air and rolling about the sun, kings and cardinals, nobles and churchmen, the learned and the pious, began bestowing upon these abodes of scholars their lavish gifts of land and money, and have continued their benefactions down to our time. What these universities, with their distinguished array of educated men in every department of human achievement, have done for the progress of civilization and the well-being of man, this entire volume could not begin to tell. Even the most imaginative and gifted genius could not create the surprising picture. Nor has America failed to keep step in the mighty procession of educated young men. From every shoolhouse, academy, college, seminary, and university they have gone forth into the varied spheres of activity as the worthy sons of a worthy nation. To attempt anything like a thorough, comprehensive presentation of this broad theme within the narrow limits of a few printed pages were nothing short of folly. A clear impossibility ! All that I may be premitted to hope, however, is that some thoughts, here expressed, may prove suggestive. Our age is peerless in the quantity of intellectual activity, whatever may be said of its quality. Never so much free thought, never so much freedom of thought, as to-day. The schoolmaster is abroad. The press is in untiring operation. The spirit of inquiry is everywhere. History pores over the hoary records of the past that it may enlighten the present and guide the future. Travelers hasten over land and ocean without rest, now plunging into some unexplored territory, then off and away to the land where every temple niche enshrines a deity and every fountain leaps to song. Scientists are weighing the planets in scales ; foretelling the birth of the tempest or the eclipse of the starry orb ; interpreting the hieroglyphs carved on ancient monoliths and curious tablets ; solving the mysteries of the unfathomed deep ; changing chaotic confusion into cosmic order ; and contributing their resources to the unity, intelligence, and advancement of our race. Philosophers, poets, specialists, and the professional classes in general, are busily engaged in the pursuit of knowledge. It was a proud day for Jason and the Argonauts when they sailed forth in search of the golden fleece, hoping to snatch it from beneath the sleepless eyes of the dragon. A splendid enterprise was that of Launcelot and his fellow knights of the Round Table who sought the sacramental cup. A noble quest was that of Ponce de Leon after the fountain of perpetual youth. But what were these to the quest for knowledge ? Wisdom is the principal thing. It is more precious than rubies, and its gain than fine gold. The highest power resides in the mind. The mightiest treasures are thoughts. They are chiseled in sculpture, heard in eloquence, witnessed in architecture, incarnated in legislation, enthroned in statecraft. What a majesty, a dignity, a might there is in earnest thought ! It has cleared forests, dispelled mists, tunneled mountains, bridged gulfs, and unraveled knotty problems. It has beaten back the ocean, raced with time, harnessed the lightning, and achieved a mission of mercy. Scholars are its willing servants, and regal sovereigns are numbered among its devoted subjects. That was a quaint portrait of wisdom which Ben Jonson sketched when he said : “ Upon her head she wears a crown of stars, Through which her orient hair waves to her waist, By which believing mortals hold her fast, And in those golden cords are carried, even Till with her breath she blows them up to heaven.” Knowledge is the cornerstone of character. What a man knows is the index of what he is. It is the gauge and standard of true success. But what is character? It is not genius ; it is not mere intellectual achievement ; it is not reputation, — though that is oftentimes mistaken for it. When we come to analyze character, we discover that it consists in conscience enlightened by divine truth and obeyed with courage. Conscience distinguishes between right and wrong. Intelligence, enlightened by divine truth, clarifies our moral vision. Courage sets itself manfully to carry out the convictions of right in the face of every opposition. These three constituent elements combined form moral manhood, self sovereignty. In all moments of hesitation the deciding question of conscience is never, Will it pay ? or, Will it please? or, Will it bring reputation ? but ever, Is it right? There is much sterling truth in these familiar linesof Lord Tennyson: 164 “Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control, — These three alone lead life to sovereign power. Yet not for power, — power of herself Would come uncalled for ; but to live by law, Acting the law we live by without fear, And because right is right to follow right, Were wisdom in the scorn of consequence.” All knowledge is progressive. The educated young man never comes to a standstill. The four years of college life are only four brief chapters, although they rank among the most pleasant chapters of the volume. But each subsequent year furnishes an additional chapter, and all the while the volume grows richer in knowledge and ampler in experience. The school boy graduates into the student, the student into the professional man or the merchant, the professional or commercial man into the man of retirement, the man of retirement into — what? Man has not yet reached the goal of ultimate discovery. He is but breaking the shell and the crust. He is but turning up the soil to the depth of a few inches. He has but traversed a few leagues of the immensity of being. He has but surveyed a few departments of the empire of matter. He has but caught a faint, partial glimpse of the radiant, immeasurable outlook. “ Onward ! ” is the universal cry of educated young men. The boundaries of knowledge widen. The goal becomes a starting-point. The loftiest peak hitherto scaled is but a step in the ascending stairway. We are but learning the letters of the alphabet. When shall the volume be completed? When shall the index be furnished ? When the preface written ? When the folio issued and put into circulation ? Who can tell ? What seer can prophesy with accuracy the chronological date? Yes, education is progressive. Slowly, steadily has man advanced in knowledge, in culture, in conquest. With painstaking toil he is discovering the secrets of the skies, the secrets of the air, the secrets of the earth, the secrets of the forces of nature. The educated young men of to-day will be the leaders of thought in the twentieth century. With all the marvels of the present century so soon to close, the century which is about to dawn promises to eclipse it in the record of marvels. As we look back over its long series of luminous events, it is impossible that we should see it sink into the past without emotion. How much of ourselves, of all that we have loved and admired and worked for, will be buried with it ! What will be the answers of the twentieth century to the problems proposed by the nineteenth century? From what country will its great men arise? What part will the educated young men of America play in the grand march of coming events? What amelioration of the material and moral conditions of mankind will be inaugurated? What new light will be thrown upon the problem of human destiny ? What new meaning will attach itself to the words history, society, humanity ? To live in such a world at such an age as this, is life indeed. To stand face to face with nature as an open book, to search its mysteries and work out its problems, to participate in the intellectual force which governs the age, — this is in its broadest, fullest sense to enjoy an incomparable opportunity. When Colonel Newcome lay dying, his thoughts went back to his early school-days. He sat again among the boys and heard the voice of the teacher calling the roll. He lifted himself upon his arm in bed, and listened intently until he heard his own name called, and then answering “ Present,” he fell back on his pillow and slept his last sleep. There is nothing better than this : to answer “ Present ” at the roll-call of the Master. REV. PROF. M. H. RICHARDS, D.D. BORN JUNE 17, 1841, DIED DECEMBER 12, 1898. Rev. Professor M. h. Richards, D.D ts « D EATH asks for no mail’s leave, but lifts the latch and enters and sits down. The door stands closed, and as we pass by we think of him who is ho more. The door whose threshold shall never more be crossed by him, who in the period of high hopes of young manhood crossed it with so sprightly a step, and even in his later years when he felt that life for him was shrinking in. Dr. Richards is no more. He is gone but not forgotten. The room in which he held his recitations still holds the memories of his presence. His spirit still survives in the results of his many years of labor. It is an inexplicable fact, and one not always apparent to those who are treading the higher thoroughfares of thought, how the impress of a personality may last beyond the grave. How can student pen of mine, yet so crude in its expression, pen a fitting eulogy for him? He was a man, a man of parts. Great was his knowledge and talents, yet was he modest withal. His long years of service to the church he loved so well attests his love for her. No more shall we hear his voice, no more shall he delight us with his wit as keen as any blade tempered at Damascus. Nevermore. But, no ; although this door stands closed, there is another door standing wide open and the gates leading to it are ajar. He has crossed the threshold, and, after life’s fitful fever, we believe sleeps well. His life was well spent, and he now enjoys deserved rest. He was a good and faithful servant and has entered into the joy of his Lord. Shall we say this joy is too soon? The Lord, whose ways are inscrutable, has taken him home for higher duties, and He knows best. His life is ended ; his work is done. And as we shed a tear to his memory, we are consoled by the knowledge that that work was faithfully done. He did it with all his might, deeming his rest in eternity. Loyalty had he, but not bigotry. That true loyalty which knows and appreciates the defects of the thing around which its loyalty centers. He was just. He knew that relation of congruity which really subsists between two things ; this relation which is always the same, whatever being considers it, whether it be God or an angel or a man. He was a righteous man, but above all was he a good man. He taught Christ with no distorted emotion. He knew Christ only and Him crucified. He had the faith that wears well and holds its colors in all weathers, the faith woven of conviction and set with the sharp mordant of experience. We cannot say his life was all sunshine ; it had its shadows too. The best of us meet these shadows aglint our pathway. In summing up our life we can only measure it by the amount of usefulness it has been to others. He had a wide sphere of action, and that true genius of continuity in the several segments of that sphere. The other door is closed to us yet, but not for long. The day, too, will come when we with all our memories and love, will have to cross the threshold of that door. May the good God grant us as wide a sphere of usefulness as he had ; may he give us the gift of His grace and faith, in the measure that he bestowed it upon him ; may we never waver in loyalty to our church, and may we cherish his memory as of one who made the world better for his having lived in it. May we when the sun sets upon our little lives, and upon our ken the world seems shrinking in, go with as steadfast a faith to cross the threshold “ Peace, Peace ! he is not dead, he doth not sleep ; He hath awakened from the dream of life. ’Tis we who, lost in story visions, keep With phantoms an unprofitable strife, He has outsoared the shadows of our night. Envy and calumny, and hate and pain, And the unrest which men miscall delight, Can touch him not and torture not again. From the contagion of the world’s slow stain He is secure, ” The Individuality of College Students. By Prof. Chas. C. Boyer, Ph.D., ’85. 5 « T HOSE who have thought about the matter consider it practically impossible to find two persons exactly alike in susceptibilities, possibilities, ideals, etc. That, in part at least, the sum total of these personal differences is due to psycho-physical relations can not be denied. The transmission of hereditary traits and the impression of environment can be satisfactorily explained only on this basis. The assumption is confirmed, indeed, by scientific observation. Nevertheless, it must be conceded that these observations may prove nothing more than modification of a divinely planned mental life-line. And this hypothesis, moreover, harmonizes more completely with the relatively greater dignity of the mind in its relation with the body. The constitutional trend of a person, . ?. , the sum total of the differences in question, is termed Individuality. The history of the valuation of individuality is interesting. In oriental countries individuality was subordinate to family, caste, state, etc. The Greek individuality asserted itself only in imitation of its beautiful environment, and the Roman individuality was the product of necessity. The Teuton was the first to value individuality in and for itself, but failed to see that absolute individuality apart from moral worth may menace society and destroy itself. The Mediaeval knight was the personification of this false Teutonic conception. The destruction of feudalism began, and th e Reformation completed, the European education with respect to the worth of individuality. The old Teutonic idea of the worth of individuality is virtually the American ideal, and yet the individuality which the American values so highly is not mere individuality but moral individuality. The first European universities arose from the felt necessity of self-culture on the part of Teutonic students returning from Spanish-Mohammedan schools. From that time on for centuries colleges and universities depended for patronage not so much on practical necessities as on the self-valuation of ambitious young men. The modern college student, stimulated by the history of struggles for national and individual freedom in all countries, generally values his individuality wholly out of proportion with its actual worth. This is eminently true of American college boys, whose American estimate of the worth of their individuality is greatly enlarged by indiscriminate offers of “ eclectic ” college courses. The true worth of the college student’s individuality is best understood by inquiring into the relation of endowments and ideals. Talent, as statistics prove, generally reveals itself in ideals or ambitions. This being the law of individuality, the student’s individuality deserves both his own and his teacher’s respect, (i) The student will most likely realize his highest life-possibilities in the steady pursuit of his strongest ideals, unless these be immoral interests. The fact that many men miss their calling seems to invalidate this rule, but the failure in question is more commonly due either to morbid ideals or to historical inhibitions. (2) Ambition, as everyone knows, is a powerful incentive to self-exertion, and, in harmony with the relation of talents and ideals, such exertion commonly succeeds because it is in the direction of the least resistance. The educational institution that obeys the law of the student’s individuality becomes the most effective means in his development and projects itself most effectively into his maturer years. (3) But, notwithstanding the great worth of individuality, it is not as perfect a thing as college students commonly suppose. Indeed, many of the possibilities of the college student had better never be developed, while his ideals are often wild passions whose attainments would be the direst misfortune. The constitutional trend, or individuality, of hundreds of college students is vitiated by evil hereditary influences, by mistaken encouragement of admiring relatives and friends, and by a thousand adolescent caprices. In order to fit students to live the life which they ought to live, it is generally necessary not merely to subordinate and supervise, but even to reorganize their concrete individuality. In this development of college students there should, however, not be a substitution of another individuality for that which nature has given, since such substitution would defeat the purposes of nature as expressed in the law of individuality. If the facts of the college student’s concrete individuality have been correctly stated, it follows that fixed courses are better for the younger man and eclectic courses for the older man. ( 1 ) The college years of the average college boy are practically adolescent years. Erratic upheavals of taste, fleeting trends of talent, etc., conspire with ignorance and weakness, and tend to destroy the young man’s equilibrium. What the young college man, therefore, especially needs is subordination to fixed courses of study wisely planned to correct wrong tendencies and to build up a harmonious whole. Although it must be admitted that the fixed courses of the humanity colleges lack the necessary roundness and practical adaptation to the needs of modern life, yet, all in all, these colleges are safer for the young man’s individuality than the artificial, loose-jointed eclectic courses now so common in college markets. (2) The older college man, especially if he has completed an elementary college course, needs emancipation more than subordination. The foundations having been well planned and laid, the university man should be left almost to his own choice of studies in the development of his ideals. His points of view in life and his self- knowledge are presumably correct, so that freedom of choice is his high prerogative. The architectural fitness of the courses proposed in the university now appeal to his sense of propriety, and he freely subordinates himself to such eclectic courses. He appreciates and chooses optional studies in these eclectic courses, and rejoices to find in them the possibility of realizing his ideals. Patient and sensible submission to the discipline of the fixed courses of the smaller colleges, however, is the indispensable preparation for such freedom as the college man may possess in the eclectic courses of the modern university. Unless he wou ld brave ten thousand disappointments in days to come, let every college man reflect. 1 71 Freshman Banquet and Sleigh-Ride. tS 5 T HE second term of our College is generally marked as the time when sleigh-rides and banquets are held. We are glad to state that the Class of ’02 did not break the custom. On Monday evening, January 9, the class started out on their trip. The plans were so neatly arranged that this youngest son of Muhlenberg kept the “wise fools’’ guessing till the last minute. As there was snow on the ground for the last few days the matter was fresh in their minds, but no one save a few Junior friends knew the time of departure. The news of their departure spread like wild-fire, and some Sophs proceeded after them and succeeded in taking one of the smallest and youngest men away, but after a little struggle he was again taken and they were then soon on their way. The old scheme of telephoning ahead was tried, but the same failed. So when the class landed at 10 o’clock P. M. the) ' soon sat down to one of those far-famed banquets that “Mine Host’’ Miller, of Saegersville, always prepares. The boys certainly did justice to the same. After they had satisfied their ravenous appetites and quenched their thirst with w-w-w-, the toasts were in order. Magister Epularum Fegley , in Freshmanic style, introduced each of the speakers, who responded very nobly. In the “wee small ’’ hours of the night they adjourned, and, having passed a very delightful time, they left for home and arrived in time for no recitations. This marks the first great event of its kind which the Class of ’02 will pass through in its college life. 172 Rev. Solomon Erb Ochsenford, D.D. A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. « 15 T HE death of Rev. Matthias H. Richards, D.D., caused a vacancy in the chair of English Language and Literature so ably filled by him for many years. The place was at once temporarily filled by Mr. John M. Yetter, of the Class of 1896, a post-graduate student at the New York University. After a diligent search for a clergyman competent to fill the position the Trustees unanimously elected an alumnus, of the Class of 1873, in the person of Rev. Solomon Erb Ochsenford, D.D. Dr. Ochsenford was born in Douglass Township, Montgomery County, Pa., November 8, 1855. He prepared for college at Mount Pleasant Seminary, Boyertown, Pa., 1871-73 ; entered Muhlenberg College in the Fall of 1873, and was graduated in 1876. While at College he was a member of the Euterpean Literary Society and the Franklin Reading Room Association. He entered the Lutheran Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, in the Fall of 1876, and graduated in 1879. He was ordained to the office of the ministry in the Lutheran Church by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, June 9, 1879. He took a special course in Hebrew under W. R. Harper, D. D., 1886-87. In 1896 his Alma Mater conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Divinity. He has been pastor of Lutheran congregations in and near Selinsgrove, Pa., since September 1, 1879. Under his pastoral care the congregation at Selinsgrove erected a new church, which was dedicated in 1885. He organized a Lutheran congregation at Verdilla, Pa., 1886. He was Secretary of the Fifth Conference of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, 1883-84, and has been president of the same since 1890; Trustee of Muhlenberg College since 1889; delegate to General Council, 1891, 1893, 1895, and 1897 ; reporter of proceedings of Synod for Church Messenger for a number of years ; and President of the Alumni Association of his Alma Mater 1891-93; English Secretary of Ministerium of Pennsylvania since 1895 J Secretary of Executive Board of the same since 1897, and Secretary of the Board of Presidents of Ministerium 173 of Pennsylvania 1897-98, and President of Danville Conference 1889-98. He has been editor of the Lutheran Church Almanac since 1883 ; a contributor to Appleton’s Annual Cyclopedia since 1884, as well as to Lutheran Cyclopedia, Appleton’s Cyclopedia of American Biography, and Sunday-school Literature series. He has also published, “ My First Book in the Sunday-school,” Reading, 1883, fourth edition, 1898 ; 11 The Passion Story,” Philadelphia, 1889; “Muhlenberg College Quarter Centennial Memorial Volume,” Allentown, 1892 ; Danville Conference Memorial Volume (with Rev. O. E. Pflueger ), 1898 ; Luther’s First Hymn Book (German), Selinsgrove, 1898. His pastoral and literary activity is the best guarantee of Dr. Ochsenford’s fitness for the position to which he has been unanimously called. We are proud of the fact that another alumnus of Muhlenberg has been considered worthy of a place in the College Faculty. 74 Death comes alike to rich and eke to poor The Sabine poet, Horace, makes it to appear.

You will forget — a mile or so, And out of sight is out of mind ; The easy tears soon cease to flow When life’s before and love’s behind ; Aye, love, while still 3 - our eyes are wet, You will forget. You will forget — in other years When you behold that white starshine, We see so dimly through the tears ; When you shall pass these doors of mine, Or that dear spot where first we met, You will forget. You will forget — let me love one, You have been all in all to me ; So when the past is dead and gone, Like some fine golden phantasy, Let me love on, to pay my debt — You will forget. i Requital. « e T HE past is dead, The past with all its halting hopes and fears Is buried from our sight : Henceforth the erstwhile leaden-footed years Will fleet with lissom tread, O !

Should thy martial eye ever hap upon the pages of this book, Think kindly of the editors thereof, and cast the eye of retrospection back to the classic walls of Muhlenberg, Whose halls re-echoed with the sound of thy now martial voice. O Gruhler, may the voice of the corporal wake thee betimes for breakfast ; May thy martial path lead on to victory and to fortune ; May some fair dame grace your hearth in after years, and children cheer your gray old age ; May you have youngsters who will grace these classic walls and do you proud ; May your daily drill be a lighter task to you than recitations ; May the strains of “ Old Black Joe,” sung at eventide about the camp-fire, bring back to memory one to whom it was ever dear. May solitaire and the horn prove less-attractive ; May nickel-in-the-slot machines no longer find you their bountiful patron ; May your life go on as the stream flowing to the great river of eternity, smooth and with even tread. Gruhler, we salute thee, and as we say farewell, we wish thee joy of thy profession And trust to see thy welcome face once more ere we depart.

The frosty pane, with its etchings fantastic, betokens the advent of Jack Frost. The early morning sun just peeping out, half timidly as if she would retreat, rouses me from sleep. ’Tis now the witching hour when Morpheus most my prayers attends and Somnus lends him aid. Hark ! the bell just tolled its message. Anon a rap causes me to spring en deshabille from up my couch. Am I accursed? A troop, a gang threaten me with pail and broom. Hear I aright? “Lay on Macduff, and damn’d be he that first cries ‘ Hold, enough ! ’ ” No, Shakespeare is not on tapis to-day. A hoary head, a female form, doth me menace. .Seven the hour of communion with paints. Alas ! I must me hence ; no rest for wicked ones. They make attack and do it well. The chattels are removed and work begun. The carpet fringes all its fringe, the bedstead wants its paint. On coming back all is topsy-turvey. We fix our things and hie to recitations, meditating dire revenge for insults to our goods. Perchance, some day this brigade may be absolved, and we not fear to sleep. 179 Kunterbunt ts « Enigma.

To and fro, To and fro, Rife’s shuttles go ! The toil of fifty years In Arabesque appears : Seems but a day the loom hath wrought, Yet what a web the eve hath brought. What weaver weaves like thee, O Life ! If thoughts and words and deeds, of strife ' Twixt good and evil, from the stress Of passion, out of bright success Or dark disaster, or the thrill Of softest pleasure, thou dost still Evoke a garment for the soul Close-fitting, seamless, whole, Imperishable as the clasp Of memory, on which no rasp With biting teeth can impress make, From which no touch can lustre take. Cunning is Science at the loom ! Smiling she gives each color room, Deftly she mingles form and face, Smoothly her weaving grows apace. A wondrous tale the pattern tells As forests sway and ocean swells ; Bird, beast, and man ; water and sky ; And depths beneath and clouds on high ; Are mirrored in her woven book — Right pleasant ’tis therein to look ! Wondrous the pattern History frames ! Warriors in arms, cities in flames, Fair queens, the hoary-bearded sage, Poets and statesmen, and the rage Of hateful tyrants, or the birth Of freedom, or a people’s mirth On some great festal holiday, Or voyagers upon their way New worlds to open to the throng, Or temples echoing to the song Of chanting priests, veiled in the smoke Of altars fired the gods t’ invoke. Rare is the fabric Fancy weaves, Where Poetry the sense deceives ; And filmy figures veil the song, And fringed rhymes, lace-like, along Are gemmed with glittering bugles rare In patterns rich beyond compare, Till all seems true where naught is real ; A mist-spun robe of threads ideal, The fairy splendor of a dream ; Frail as the bubbles on the stream, Most iris-like when nearest death, Changed to a tear at slightest breath. Yet none are workmen rare like Life ! None can so stir the passions rife With joy or grief, none can so start The tear o’erflowing, or the heart 181 Wild-throbbing, with th’ impassioned thought These deeds were mine ! These goals I sought So wagered I ! So won, so lost ! In such a storm my bark was tost, In such a paradise I dreamed ; Such jewels on my forehead gleamed, Such sorrows crushed me down to earth, Such hopes for me gave life new birth. Unroll thy web fair Memory ! We’ll gaze on days of childish glee, We’ll see once more our bright-browed youth, We’ll test, now schooled, our manhood ' s truth Bring back each pang — we fear not now — Bring back each joy, recall each vow, Not one dull thread, no u seless line Is in thy web, — for all were mine ! My thought, my word, my deed, my will, Thy warp and woof with figures fill ! My heart’s blood warms thy fabric’s glow, My tears the wav’d lines in it show ; My pulse-beats were thv shuttle ' s throb, — Where snapt a thread, I gasped a sob ! ii. To and fro, To and fro, Life’s shuttles go ! The toil of fifty years In Arabesque appears : Seems but a day the loom hath wrought, Yet what a web the eve hath brought ! Fifty years of fun and noise ! Fifty sets of college boys ! Fifty crops of Freshmen green, Fifty Soph’more bands to we ' n From coltish outbreaks into sense ! Fifty Junior legions whence Fifty vSenior cohorts rise, Fifty times the goal of eyes Gazing on Commencement Day, With growing wonder at the way The new A.Bs, so elegant, With wondrous wisdom wild descant ! Think of the torture Horace knew, Translated every year anew ! Think of old Trillv’s eloquence Turned into English without sense ! Picture the tragic Grecian Muse Indignant at her great abuse ! Mark Ca-sar veil his face in pain And cry, et tu Bmte , again ! Hear “ Matthew Matics ” shriek for fear As X Y Z all wronged appear ! Grave Logic tears his beard, and howls At reasons proffered, that the cowls Of after-dinner monks would shame ; And many an “ ology ” its fame Abjures, and execrates the day On which it came in students’ way ! Mounts up the stairs unto the halls Where once a week came off the bawls Of fervid declamation, and Debating gymnasts arguing stand ! What if tho se walls with deaf’ning speech Should, all at once, begin to screech Over again what they had heard, Re-echoing tone, accent, word ! Breathes there a man in all this crowd That would not rather wear a shroud Than listen to that stunning noise Of fifty years of college boys? For fifty years here came and went Full many a soul on wisdom bent. Within these precincts set apart For learning, not the enriching art Of cent per cent., the promised gain Of ease and rank, surcease from pain Of daily toil and carking care, Purchase of all that’s costly, rare, For fifty years brave youth have come, And prayed that this might be their home Until, with vision strong and bright, They could life ' s lessons read aright. But little knew the world outside What self-denials these defied ; How pinching poverty thy fought, How dearly learning oft was bought, How many a wish was mortified, How proudly pride stampt heel on pride, What hearts heroic wore perforce Some shabby suit of texture coarse ! Learning her knights has had, as true As ever sword in battle drew ; Science her martyr’d dead can boast As well as Patriotism’s host ; And e’en Religion’s saintliest life Here armed it for the heavenly strife. For fifty years here toiled and taught Men who, save duty, reckoned naught Of life had price or solid worth ; Whose moulding hands sent yearly forth Aid to the world, and for reward Received in turn scarce the regard Of those whose needs they feed so well, Imparting learning’s mighty spell. These are the stars, that, shining bright, Bid us despair not of the night ; These are the proofs to longing eyes That anxious look up to the skies. No ! fate has yet much good in store While men are found, lovers of lore, Who lead such lives, revere such task ; Who nothing from the proud world ask But that they may its blessing prove ; Whose life is freely spent in love Of that which true is, good, and right ; Believing still, in these the might Of God is found, — the glory-way That leads on to the perfect day ! m. To and fro, To and fro, Life’s shuttles go ! The toil of fifty years In Arabesque appears : Seems but a day the loom hath wrought, Yet what a web the eve hath brought ! Come, busy weaver, rest awhile ! Let work stand still ; let us beguile An hour or two in social joys, Forget the years, be once more boys, Recall our pranks, rehearse each joke, The jolly laugh again provoke, Be free of tongue and light of heart, Ready, each one, to take his part In all that’s going on ; — the sport, The rig, the quip, the gay retort— Without a thought of malice mean, Without a pang of envy keen. The best of life in ink is writ Of sympathetic sort. The wit, The humor, and the gush of joy From out the heart, will not deploy Their ranks angelic, till the glow Of social meeting bids them show Their rainbow raiment, and the heat Of merry-making tunes their feet. In magic march processional, With chanted song " confessional, To act their mimic history, The Masque of Mem ' rv’s mystery. Unroll the parchment to the flame Of friendship sworn, — not the mere name- The power, the tie, the potent spell ! Now mark the letters, words ! How well The gen ' rous warmth recalls the strokes Of pen and pencil, and evokes Things long forgotten, faded quite Into the paper, out of sight These many days, this man}- a year ! Look ! here a face begins to appear, And now a room, a desk, a chair ! Hush, hark ! a bell alarms the air ; A rap upon the door resounds, Like tutor’s on his nightly rounds ! For us whom ties still closer hold, Yet fonder scenes glow and unfold ! Fraternal greetings, gath’rings sweet ; Each trust unbroken ; genial, meet Companionship ; harmonious thought ; Gentle rebuke, most kindly wrought To help or warn, but not to wound ; And confidence of hopes, or ground Of new convictions frankly said By those who knew they need not dread A sneer or scoff. Here first the light Shone on the toil of genius, bright But fearful lest the world’s harsh frown Would smite his cherished fancies down. See, as our heart-glow warms the ink, One seems to see the very wink Of eyes, and smile of lips, die joys Known only when, among “ the boys,” We feasted royally, once in a while, .Simple the spread, picnic the style, But fellowship supplied the zest And made the viands taste their best. Nights of ambrosial diet these, Of nectar that the gods might please ! For we Olympians were, in sooth, And gods potential in our youth, Gave fancy reins, spurred hotly on, Counted our fields already won. Yes ! it is well, just for to-night, On these old times to turn the light Concentrated, of all our band, Tread the old pathway, hand in hand, Forget the sev ' rances, and hold Ourselves as loving as of old. Wiser, perchance, we may be now, And yet a bolder man, I trow, Than I shall say we were unwise Such friendly bonds so much to prize. In all these fifty years now sped No happier way-marks lustre shed Upon the path ' long which we spent Than evenings fraternizing spent ! IV. To and fro, To and fro, Life’s shuttles go ! The toil of fifty years In Arabesque appears : Seems but a day the loom hath wrought. Yet what a web the eve hath brought ! Feeble the product of thy skill, O craftsman Life, if singly still One figure varied and prolonged In solitary state belonged To all thy pattern. Two, I ween, At least, in comp ' ny must be seen. Humanity’s of such a mould l’rotean, that it must unfold Its needful aspects by a band Of kindred spirits, hand in hand. As he who knows of tongues but one, In truth, of languages knows none ; So he who leads his life apart And takes no friends into his heart Has failed to live. What does he know Of rarest pleasures, the blest flow Of sympathy ; relief from pain, When cares and fears, once and again, We whisper to the patient ear Ready to comfort as to hear ? How can he taste that heavenly food, Life’s sweetest morsel, doing good Unto the hearts knit to our own, By close communion firmly grown Part of ourselves — a dearer part ? Go, stand within the busy mart, Unknown, unsought, without a friend, While bustling crowds around thee wend And stare and push ! Thou art alone ! Not more the ship-wrecked wretch whose moan The sobbing tides, re-echoing, creep Along the strand and hush to sleep ! But dwell where’er thy lot demands Sustained by friendship’s loving hands, And thou art happy ! Thou hast found Companionship, canst hear the sound Of thine own name pronounced in love ! ' Tis heaven about thee, though above The skies be dark, and all around Frozen the clime, sterile the ground ! But if strong manhood needs thy clasp And strength receives from thy warm grasp, O Friendship ! what of youth, home-bred, Nourished on local ties, and wed In ev’ry nerve and fibre to the spot Where birth and childhood cast his lot, When once these snap, and he must try From out the nest, bird-like, to fly, Must plume his callow, trembling wing And on the air his body fling? The college Rubicon is past ! He seeks his room — alone at last ! Oh, how alone he seems that night ! How fancy conjures up the sight Of loved ones round the household fire ! How, for the time, his dreams expire Of high renown by learning gained. He wishes now he had refrained And humbler sought a lowlier place Still near at hand to each loved face ! What reconciles him to his choice ? What after while makes him rejoice, Vacation past, once more to start P ' or college, and from home to part ? Friends he has found, and friendship’s gain Has counterbalanced all the pain Of home — life lost. A new world ' s shore His eager footsteps glad explore ! Far out upon the depths he seems Already sailing, in his dreams ! Comrades with him the fancy share : Together plan and hope and dare And promise, when the day shall break That heralds further flight, to take Their way across that glorious sea And brave the fates in company ! Oh, happy friendships of our youth ! When honor, virtue, love, and truth Knit fast their bonds and fire each heart Day after day, to act its part Mrst nobly, in the conscious might Of faithful allies, for the right. v. To and fro, To and fro, Life’s shuttles go ! The toil of fifty years In Arabesque appears : Seems but a day the loom hath wrought, Yet what a web the eve hath brought ! E’en as we speak the loom draws breath And starts once more, as fearing death If pulses longer it restrain From throbbing, or from work refrain. Alas ! and can we then no more, Amid the pleasing past, explore The records of our college days To sing them in congenial lays? i No more ! Each cog, each wheel moves round, The shuttle flies, the thread’s unwound. Life is not retrospection glad, Nor living contemplation sad. To act e’en now, to plan for more Than self ; to work, to grow, adore Thy God, thy race to bless, aud rise To endless glories ’bove the skies — This, this is life of mortal men ! Speed on, thou loom, for only then, Thy task full-finished, can we see Thv perfect work — mortality All swelled up in ransomed grace — When face of man looks in God’s face. We will but miss life’s final aim By ling’ring greed t’ espy our fame, And wonder indolent to know What after years of us may show ! Work by the pattern for thee set, Work steadily, nor tarry yet Thy loom to halt, once and again, To see what rank thou hold’st with men. Below’s the pattern — not above — Unseen by us, though to the love Of God all clear and plain it lies. How can we estimate the prize We shall receive, or tell the place We then shall have, in that great race Where all men run, where some shall win, Where faith gives wings, where weights of sin Keep back the foolish, loath to part From petted folly hugged to heart, Speed on thy shuttle, Life, and weave For each one here, that none may grieve When from the loom the web unrolled Shall final fate for each unfold. Oh, let it be some garment rare, Some robe exceeding all compare With modest hope, self-estimate Of merit held in present state. Speed on thy shuttle, Life, make haste ! Thy moments scant, thou must not waste Their ’bated sum, lest night shall fall Before thou hast completed all Our rich attire to robe us in When we at last the triumph win !

Introduction. e « K IND friends, we bid you welcome to this part Of our volume, wrought with greatest care. ’Tis true, as Horace says, “ ’Tis sweet to play The fool at times ; ” but better yet for us To satirize a man who has become, For some short time, a fool, unwittingly.

An Old Song in a New Dress. « « L EILA had a little man Whose skin was white as snow ; And everywhere that Leila went, That man was sure to go. Once he took her home from church,— ' Twas ’gainst her father’s rule. What else could you expect from him, From such an awful fool ? F ' ather brought the rod to bear Lfpon the young man’s back , “ I’ll fleece you well right now,” said he, While the rod said “ Whack, crack, whack.” Young man wandered to his home Like weary Willie now ; His back was sore, his feelings hurt, Nor did he reason how. 192 To Whom Do These Apply? « e 1. “ For lie, by geometric scale, Could take the size of pots of ale ; Resolve by sines and tangents straight If bread or butter wanted weight ; And wisely tell what hour o’ the day The clock does strike, by Algebra.” 2. “ Great wits are sure to madness near allied, And thin partition do their bounds divide.” 3. “ Besides, ' tis known he could speak Greek As naturally as pigs squeak ; That Latin was no more difficile Than to a blackbird ’tis to whistle.” 4. ” Quoth he, I see you have more tricks Than all our doting politics ” 5. “ For Anaxagorias, long agone, Saw hills as well as you, i’ th’ moon, And held the sun was but a piece Of red-hot iron as big as Greece ; Believed the heavens were made of stone Because the sun had voided one ; And rather than he would recant Th’ opinion, suffered banishment.” 6. “ Whatever sceptic could enquire for, For every why 6 7 he had a wherefore.” 193 Notes from a Freshman’s Diary. ts « W EDNESDAY, September i. — I packed my trunk to go to college. I remember Dad cracked the joke about my being like an elephant because I always carried my trunk wherever I went. I wonder whether he ever went away from home when he was a kid. I feel bad at leaving home and Maria. The train leaves early in the morning. So I shall stop entering notes in my diary and go to bed. September 2. — Got up at five o’clock. I went all alone to college. Maria was at the depot to say good-bye. When I got to Allentown I asked at once the way to Mule an’ Berg. Someone then answered ( I reckon he was a student), “ Who do you mean? There are so many mules at college, and Berg is one, too.” Then I felt ashamed, and I said, ‘‘Please, mister, tell me the way to college.” “ Which college?” he said. Then I said, ‘‘The one here for boys.” Then he smiled and said, “ All right, come along.” I followed him, and came to the college. My friend (whom I had just found) was a nice fellow ; his name was D . He showed me first the gymnasium and bathrooms. Then he took me to what he called a student’s room. In this little square place I found two large boxes (he called them coves). He said that I would have to sleep in one of these that night. I asked where I could get sheets, and if they were furnished by the faculty. He said, ‘‘One minute,” and was off like a shot in our war. After a long time he came back. He brought along a thin man, and said, “ Here’s Scheets.” I didn’t know what he meant. Then I felt like crying (it was the first time I was ever away from home and anything of this kind happened). I said, “ Why do you do this to me ; I never hurt you?” He didn’t say anything, but just looked at me. The next thing I knew the room was full of yelling, howling things. They all shook my hands, and made an awful noise. Sombody was good enough to see that my trunk was sent up to me. I had forgotten it ; and my father’s joke didn’t suit this time. I wanted to know where to get dinner. Someone, named Pete or Frank or something else, took me to an old house back of the college. We had mostly pie for dinner. I ate a great deal. After dinner I was awful sick from pie and that detestable water. Then somebody offered me a cigar to smoke. I smoked it. And then I felt worse than I did before. I left out much from this diary because I couldn’t remember everything. And to-night I am very tired and i94 sick. I studied some ; and now at 1 1 o’clock I am going to bed. I always used to go at home at eight. I feel like a man now. Some nice fellows took me out about io o’clock, and we had something better than that ugly water to drink. September 3. — I got awake at 6 o’clock. An awful loud bell somewhere around the building woke me up. I got up and dressed. I went to breakfast ; and then I studied some. At half-past eight o’clock I went to chapel. There a big man read the service. Somebody read a lot of names ; mine was there, too, but very near the end. I think mine ought to have been near the front, too. When I asked why this man read these names, someone said, “Why, he’s reading the roll.’’ I said, “Reading it; why, I never do anything to rolls but eat them.” Then somebody said, “ I always take a roll in bed before I get up.” Then everybody giggled and laughed ; but I didn ' t see anything funny in what he said. We then went to a recitation. One of the boys asked me when Niagara Falls was built. I said that I had forgotten the date, but that I had studied it before, and would look it up for him. Then everyone laughed at me, and called me all sorts of names. To-night I looked in all my books and dictionaries and encyclopedias, but couldn’t find that date. At 12 o’clock we got some dinner. We had some raisin pie. Someone of the boys said that people called it raisin pie because they put something in it to make it rise, and then it was raisin’. Another fellow said, “ No, it ain’t ; it’s because we raise it before we eat it.” Then somebody else said, “ Yes, but we lower it, too. Mine sets under the west like the sun.” And then the fellows laughed and yelled. It was awful. I remember all this ; but, really, I didn’t see any fun in it. There were so many things that happened to-day that I can’t write them all down. So I will close here for to-night. September 4. — -I told someone that I retired (I had just learned how to use this word) early last night ; and he said, “I didn’t know that you owned a bicycle, and that it needed a new tire. I would have offered you my services?” I said, “ I wish you would offer me your suspenders instead ; mine are broken. And anyway, I don’t know what those services are.” He said, “Both serve a purpose.” And, of course, all who were standing around laughed and shouted. But I never found out what they were laughing at. After a while a classmate came to my room. He talked for awhile, and then said, “What is that?” at the same time he pointed to a beautiful picture. I said, “ That’s a country picture.” “ No, it isn’t ; that is a pronoun.” Then he laughed, and I didn ' t see anything to laugh at. So I said, “ If you don’t stop laughing I’ll give you something to laugh at.” I was mad ; and he saw that I was mad enough and strong enough to knock him over, so he left me by myself. ■95 About three o’clock to-day I got a letter. When I opened it, I found that it was from Maria. It was a fine letter. I will copy here this letter, because it might get lost, and then what would I do? The letter went this way : Dear : I love you yet. Jake came to take me out last night, but I wouldn’t go along. Jake isn’t in it with you. I am still true to you, aud always will be. I am so sorry that you had to go to college ; you are so far away from me. But please come home soon ; and write to me very often. Can you come next Sunday? Do please, dear . I am almost dying here without you. I still keep the house and cook, and you know how good I can do both. Our cabbages are fine ; and our chickens are looking real smart and good. But do dear please come home soon. I love you yet as I used to. If you come home soon I will give you three kisses and some nice buttermilk and onions. When I wrote this letter, I was crying because you were away from me. I was wondering how you were getting on, and whether the boys teased you much. These dots mean kisses for you • ••••• and you can have as many more if you come home soon. Dear I still remain yours, With love and kisses, Your Own Dear Maria. I read this letter, and then felt badly because I was not at home. I really believe I was already getting homesick. I will go to bed very early to-night. This afternoon the president of the college called me down to him, and said, “ Have you met any nice fellows yet?” (He must have learned all about my sickness.) I said, “Yes.” He asked, ‘‘For instance, who?” I replied, 11 Bergenhentor and Reigge.” He shook his head, and said, ‘‘Very nice young men. Now, you must get them and others to take you and introduce you to some fine young people around town. Then you’ll get all right.” But I stayed sick. I wrote home, and said I wanted to go back and see father and mother. About 9 o’clock now, I go to bed. September 8. — I haven’t written any more in here lately because I have been so sick. Dad wrote to me and said if I didn’t shut up and quit fussing that he’d come here with a birch rod and tan my hide. I’d hide in my alcove before I’d let Pop do this to me. To-day Mom came here to see me. She comforted me a little, and then went home. When she had gone, the fellows guyed me and called me 11 mother’s baby,” and ‘‘ baby-boy,” and all kinds of such names. I tell you I was awful mad then. Then I gave Ruhe (I now have found out how to spell his name) an awful blow that knocked him down. Poor little fellow ! I am sorry I did it. But then someone called out, ‘‘ He will rue it always that he worried with this man.” But I wasn’t in any humor for joking, and I let the fellows know it. All records from this point to October 29 have never been obtained by 11s. What we did obtain, we obtained only by exceptional luck and skill. October 29. — I have learned something in these two months ; I can almost feel my head swelling. I am a much wiser man than I was when I came here. I can now write Freshman essays, play foot-ball, and do a whole lot of things. The fellows respect me now. Won’t Maria be glad when she knows that I am going to play on the Freshman foot-ball team against the Sophomores. Someone remarked that if I and certain other fellows were going to play on the team it would teem with fools. But I don’t believe this, even though Reigge, the captain, did say it ; I believe that we are going to beat the Sophomores like we would beat an egg ; and that will settle it. (I can crack a joke or two now, too, among my accomplishments.) We will win. But the Sophs say they will win, and they are asking us, “ Why is a game that is lost like the figure two?” The answer is, “ Because it’s not one.” And that isn’t a bad joke, either : is it now? These few notes are all that we have been able to collect. May they interest the readers as much as the facts contained in them interested that person who is the central figure throughout. 197 College Primer. COMPILED BY J.

But since these rules and regulations can not be fully effective unless the parents, guardians, and friends of the institution are ready, willing, and eager to co-operate, we therefore do ask, implore, beseech, and pray that all parents, guardians, and friends of these students under our care may heartily contribute all in their power to make this a model college. This is the end and aim of our ambition ; to this end may everyone help us ! These rules and regulations have been adopted by us, The Board of Control and Faculty of Muhlenberg College. 202 Side Talks with Young Men. ts ts Those correspondents who wish a direct answer must enclose with their question a two-cent stamp to cover expense of mailing. All correspondents must affix to their letters their own name, their nom de plume, or their initials. W. A. H., ’99.— I fear that you are neglecting your college work on account of your numerous engagements. C. B., ' 01. — It is considered unbecoming of a gentleman to flirt in public. Perhaps you had better stop that. A. A. KunklE, ’99. — Never mind her name ; what’s in a name, anyhow. Yet, if I were in your place, I should change it as soon a s possible. G. K. RubrechT, ’01. — It is proper for young men to go to call about nine o’clock. You should leave about eleven ; by that time the young lady may be tired of you. In some cases you might stay a little later. Beck, ’02. — Certainly, if you stay at a place until twelve o’clock, remain until morning. However, as I understand that you are a Freshman, I advise you to come home sooner Ruhe. — You are rather small to be going around with the girls. Take our advice, and wait awhile. Hartley. — Y ou should not call upon the person of whom you speak ; the reason is a-parent. Aby, ’ ’ ’00. — If you lose your head, the best method of finding it is to hunt for it. Straub, ’00. — Lately I came acioss something which would answer your question very nicely. It is the following: “A man should always be polite, but it isn’t necessary for him to remove his hat when talking to a lady through the telephone.” Miller, ’02. — Quotations are often very useful ; here’s one which will suit your case : ” The old maid is always a matchless woman.” R. K. HarTZELL, ’99. — Broad assertions are often made by narrow-minded men. SteigerwalT, ’99. — You have sent us your picture, and ask whether we think you a well-formed man. Certainly you are. We think that you reflect great credit upon your gymnasium and trainers, and you are a fine example of the good done by your institution in this line. William M. Horn, ’00. — The quotation for which you asked is, ” Where there’s a Will, there’s a way.” P. H. Brunner, ’02. — Though you are fond of wearing clothes much too large for you, I should advise you at least not to wear No. 17 collars. Leave those for a man with a larger neck. J. M. FeTherolf, ’01. — You write that you had a quarrel with one of your associates ; I am very sorry. You ask if you were right in what you said to him. I certainly think that you made a mistake when you said, ‘ ‘ Let us never speak again. ” If you wished to say anything of this kind to ease your feelings, you should have said, “Let us never speak to each other again.” And evemthis may be impracticable. P. G. Krutzky, ’00. — I should advise you not to indulge in big words, e. g ., pedagogical characteristics. Use the simple English words ; they will dojmu much more good. L- FriTCH, ’99.— Because you are fond of one girl named Cora, it isn’t necessary that you should call every girl Cora. Get out of this habit as soon as possible. Scholl, ’02. — Yes ; the professor of whom you speak expects you to laugh only when he laughs. His laugh occurs only when he thinks that he has cracked a joke. Also, I agree with you that it would be a good thing for you to go to him after class sometimes, and ask him to show you the points of his jokes, for you thought them very blunt. 203 Who Said ? « ts 1 . “ Now, my young friends. ’ ’ 2. “ You all are very eager tc note in your books when an experiment doesn’t work. 3. “ Gentlemen, did anyone of you see my dish-pan?” 4. 11 Were you brought up in a barn ? ” 5. “ Now, maak veil ! ” 6. “ Every man with long back hair is not a poet.” 204 THE GAZETTE. Vol. III. ALLENTOWN, PA. Special. NOTICE. All communications and subscriptions must be addressed to the general manager, S I y . Prue (as below) . Anything else must be sent to the editor- in-chief, T. R. Coons, 33-35 South Hall street, M. C , Allentown, Pa. All things received which are worth}’ of pub- lication will be published. The senders will be well recompensed for their articles. Any criticisms, which are impartial and just, will be received with many thanks. If we can reform, we shall do it gladly. TERMS. Subscriptions. — Single copies. Si 00 a year. Clubs of five or more will receive their papers at $1.00 apiece. Clubs of one hundred or more, if clubs are used to advantage, will receive their papers at a slightly reduced price All students, upon application, will have “student’s reduc- tion.” Advertisements. — All advertisements will be inserted ; but we can do without them ; we run on a different basis. The first insertion will cost $1.00 a word ; subsequent insertions, 50 cents. This is done merely to please the subscribers. It has been asked of us, the editors of this paper, that we insert in The Ciarla a specimen of this interesting monthly. After much persuasion we agreed to con- form to this request We knew at the time of our acceptance that much trouble would be given us on account of this extra work. You may wish to know why it is extra work. Well, you see, we had to prepare a special copy. The plan of this was to be the plan of our magazine ; but the contents are very different, for here we had to try to be “ funny,” while usually our magazine is of a very serious nature. However, we have done our best, and hope that our requesters are satisfied, and that the patrons of our paper are satis- fied with this specimen copy, which many people, who have never seen or heard of the paper before, will now see. By this method we hope to gain many new sub- scribers and to retain all of our old ones. Now, one word more before we end this article. As you see, we are giving you this specimen for nothing, free, gratis: for this you should be very thankful to us. However, some people say that what ' s given for nothing is usually worth noth- ing. But is this true? If some person would send you a box of fine oranges for nothing, would you think them worth nothing? Most certainly not. And just so with our specimen, printed specially for The Ciarla. And now, think what you will of this, we ask you, one and all, to become subscribers to this interesting paper ; the price you will find before you have read all the contents ; and, as to the address, we say the same. Wishing you alia pleasant perusal of this, we close. Young men, you should be afraid of satire. You may get a little, perhaps too much, in this Ciarla (for which we have prepared a special copy ' of our paper). But not only may you be satirized in The Ciarla , but your faults may be ex- posed in The Gazette. But “ it will all come right in the wash ; ” you won’t die from the effects. However, remember that an editor of a college monthly is dangerous sometimes, that he might (with the idea of might strongly brought out) expose your weaknesses and faults. “ Foenmn habet in cornu; longe fuge! dummodo risum. Excutiat sibi, non hie cuiquam parcet amico.” Tately we have heard much of ‘ ‘scraps. ’ ’ This is an example of slang. We have never encouraged slang, and intend never to encourage it. If we could we should like to exclude all slang from our English vocabulary ; and especially to abolish these 1 ‘ scraps, ’ ’ even if we have to make severe fights to accomplish this. A A few words on an everyday subject may not be out of place. A certain young person of my acquaintance asked a young man what seemed to him the sweetest thing on earth. The young man replied: “Girls.” But in my opinion 205 THE GAZETTE. this ru ' e does not always hold good, no matter what the girls may say about it. Girls are sometimes sweet, I’ll acknowl- edge ; on the other hand, often they are the reverse. They can be very sour on certain occasions, and often without occasions. X. Y. Z. It is a thing well known that young ladies are not always eager for young men to call often. I know a case. I shall tell you of it for your benefit, educa- tion, edification, and delectation. A young man called upon a young lady at a stylish home. The maid answered the wavering summons of the doorbell. Upon her opening the door, the young man asked whether Miss were at home. The maid dropped a pretty curtesy, and gracefully ascended the stairs, in order to find whether Miss were at home, — and the youth waited. Mean while the maid found Miss , who, not wishing to see this young man, said : “ Annie, go down and tell him that I am not at home.” Well, Annie was a simple girl ; she left her mistress, not intending to do any harm, — but it was not so. Annie once more went to the front door, and said to the caller : " Sir, Miss says she’s not at home.” The youth turned away ; tears mounted to his eyes like men ascending a stairs to the platform at the top. Annie returned to her work, never dreaming that she, one poor maid, should have made so much trouble. But so it was The young man returned to his home in a dull and sad humor. Later the joke (for such it was) was found out. Much trouble had been caused by, and to, both parties ; but finally the breach was healed. However, my young friends, be careful not to call on ladies too often or at the wrong time. And now you ask : 1 1 To whom does this story apply?” I shall answer: “ Thyself the moral of the fable see.” S. O. Uthern. A Below are a few opinions of our Ciarla. Many such are unobtainable ; for there are few persons so great as those who have contributed these sentiments. Nansen. — “ The influence of your book will reach to the Pole.” Mark Twain. — ‘‘Y our wit and humor are excellent.” Queen Victoria. — “It is a splendid book, suitable for crowned heads as well as others. My recreation is to read this book ; it takes away all cares of state.” A Critic. — ‘T can not speak too highly of your fine book. The editor-in-chief did his work well and was nobly assisted by the sub-editors. The artists are fine, and the business managers excellent. I hope that this work will be followed by another.” Alfred Austin. — ‘‘The poetry in your new book rivals mine. Extend to the authors of those beautiful poems my con- gratulations.” Queen Wilhelmina. — “Your new Ciarla will be my constant companion ” The Little Boy.— “M y goats ate mine and liked it. Give me another.” Faculty. — “We congratulate you on your Ciarla. We thought that you would have torn us out ; but you didn’t hurt us at all. ” McKinley. — “ A very fine book should always receive its just reward and abund- ant praise. Send me one hundred copies which I may giv£ to my best friends as souvenirs. Whenever your class needs my services, call upon me. You will cer- tainly better the morals of the people of these United States. Yours most cordially.” Emperor of Germany. — “ Dies is de most interesting and charming of such books. I vould like dat you send me two or dree more cobies for my children. ’ ’ ALGER. — “Your book is good; yet I have one fault to find with it — you say too little of ‘scrapping.’ Take this hint when you bring out the second edition. Otherwise your book is very good.” Mr. Newman. — “ Your book is very valuable ; it is the only thing which will amuse the baby ’ ’ Certain College Men. — “Give us another chance ; then we won’t make such fools of ourselves.” 206 THE GAZETTE.

Dear S, whom Bill Horn and I Were wont to go to see, A night of memories and sighs We consecrate to thee. “ When I am dead and in my grave, And when my bones are rotten, Just think of me a little bit When I am quite forgotten.” Note. — This exquisite stanza was found in a book of one John Hartley. We have no authority to say that he wrote it ; but indications point that way. Just think of the last two lines a bit. In this place you may criticise as much as you wish. We think that a Senior should be able to write something better than that. Take our opinion for what it’s worth. A NOTES ON BOOKS. The names of certain new publications are mentioned, as we have found out in the Ciarla ; it lias been asked of us that we prepare a few notes upon these books. ‘‘Between the Lines” is a fine work upon interlinear translations. The author, Mr. McCullough, having a humorous streak in his otherwise commonplace make-up, has thought worthy to call his work by the above interesting title. The scene where the horse is found in the wrong room is very captivating. This book will find a warm place in the hearts of college students. ‘ ‘ The Rise and Progress of the Clean- ing Brigade” will fascinate everyone by its style and contents ; in it many charm- ing anecdotes are told, the best of which is the story of the horseshoe. In the early part of its history the brigade was blamed for almost everything. One night some student (?) put a horseshoe in Gable’s pillow ; Gable, upon finding it, was very wroth with the brigade. How- ever, all ended well. This incide nt, although it happened to himself, is well told by the author. Among other things he tells how the cleaners woke men from sleep in the mornings, and chased others out of their rooms, while these rooms were being cleaned)?). It is a fine book. ‘ ‘ Why Chemistry Experiments Fail ’ ’ needs no description ; it speaks for itself. “ The Inner Life of the Pope ” is writ- ten by a man who lives close to him, and has many an opportunity to observe his actions and words. This book we stro ugly recommend to all. “The Freshman” is a very life-like description of life in the Freshman Class. The author seems ashamed of his name. Well, he is young and innocent yet ; he will overcome his timidity in time. “ O My Father ” is a novel novel. The plot is this : An old man travels to Europe, meets a young lady on the Liver- pool pier who greets him as father, and treats him as such. After many wonder- ful adventures in England, Russia, Germany, Italy, and France, this old man returns to Liverpool. There he marries the young lady. Some scrapes, into which the hero gets, are very amus- ing, others very alarming. The contents are excellent and the style charming. The book is beautifully bound in the best flexible leather ; and will be an honor and ornament to any bookshelf or library. We recommend the book to all people ; we may say of it: “ Pueris virgini- busque.” PICKINGS. In America the weather is sometimes wet ; but in German} ' it is Wetter. A German letter is Brief. Would that some of our countrymen would make theirs such ! In Germany poison is administered as a Gift. Muhlenberg College now has hardwood floors. We have heard that a certain human being was a square man, an all-round man, and an angular man. It seems paradoxical. This tnan must be a freak. " You aren’t so many” is a common expression. But if you were to look at your reflection in certain mirrors which 207 THE GAZETTE. are at Muhlenberg, you would think that the opposite is true, i. e., that you are very many. The light that failed — Israelite. Horseless vehicles may be those drawn by mules. Old and new — the college bell(e). AMUSEMENTS. Lately many operas have visited our town ; some of the best may be com- mented upon. The Sophomore Company, under the guidance of Mr. G. (commonly known as Caesar), has visited us quite recently ; they remained fora short time. That time was one of our most pleasant experiences. Upon Monday night of their engagement, “Doc” was played; Tuesday night “ Der Kleine ” was ren- dered. LTpon the other evenings of the week “I Ru(h)e That Day,” “A Work of Art,” and “The Goldsmith” were rendered. Too much cannot be said in favor of this company. Of these come- dies, above mentioned, the best no doubt was “Doc;” yet the others were fine, bright, and sparkling. During the rendi- tion of “Doc” the bass singer, Thoren- gerber, missed his part once or twice ; otherwise everything passed off without a fault. The week that the Sophomore Dram- atic Company came among us for our entertainment was one of the happiest of of our lives ; every lover of good opera, from college and town, turned out every night to enjoy a good thing while they had it. And yet, the next week, another company came to us. The name of this was the Freshman Opera Company. They have not existed as long as the other ; consequently they are not quite as good, yet they have a high stand ; the) will yet have a chance to raise their already good reputation. This company was not here long ; they entertained us only two nights. Upon Monday night a comic opera entitled “The Miller” was ren- dered. This was a fine production ren- dered in a suitable manner. The central figure in this was Snyder, who had the part of the nuisance. This young man by his marvelous acting “took the cake,” and brought the house down. On Tuesday night “ The House of the Seven Gables” was rendered. This is a very new play, this being its first appear- ance on the stage. Although a few mis- takes were made the play was carried through remarkably wel l. We predict that this play will meet with as much applause and delight elsewhere as it did here upon that Tuesday evening. We advise all of our good-play lovers to see this play, if in any way possible. We compliment both the Sophomore Dramatic Company and the Freshman Opera Company, and wish them much success. E. Z. of The Gazette. I THE STORY OF A MUSTACHE. At the beginning of the college year ’98-99, Wen rich appeared upon this part of the world’s stage with a mustache. He was now a Sophomore ; but was that a reason for his having a few hairs upon his upper lip? How did he get those? you are going to ask. Well, I was just about to tell you that, at least as I heard it. Here is the version which I received. Wenrich, seeing his mother’s scrubbing brush upon the table and thinking that a Sophomore ought to have a mustache, plucked a few hairs from that brush and implanted them in the flesh of the labial part of his body. This gave him a dis- tinguished look : but the mustache was extinguished before long — as will appear if you read this story to its close. Now, we could bear the sight of this mustache for awhile ; but the day came when an envious Freshman set his im- pious fingers to pulling Wenrich’s mus- tache However, the Freshman desisted before Wenrich resisted. This little inci- dent reminds us of something in “ Horace : ” “ Vellunt tibi barbani lascivi pueri.” Besides this interesting little incident, remarks were dropped, “so many that the halls were full of them,” which were anything but encouraging to Wenrich and the cultivation of his mus- tache. At last things became so bad that Wen- rich called himself together for a consul- 208 THE GAZETTE. tation ; the result of which was that the mustache must be sacrificed to preserve peace. The next question was the manner of destroying it. It was not cold enough to freeze it and break it off ; and to burn it off would have been a crime. Then Wenrich did the only thing he could do : he procured a razor. Then he asked his chum to administer to him some laughing gas which had been bought, and while he was in that state to shave his mustache off. It was done. This happened at night. The next da) ' everyone was stupefied. The news ran like wildfire ; and, by the way, someone told some other one that the news was spreading like wildfire ; and this other one mixed up what had been told him, so that the next rumor was that Wenrich in his wildness had used fire in order to remove his mustache. But this was off the track. Within the next few days Wenrich received so many congratulatory letters and telegrams that he could not attend to his regular college work prop- erly. Wenrich has never tried to raise a mustache since ; but he says that he will, as soon as he wishes again to be the center of attraction and attention. M. InenT. AN INTRODUCTION. I never was a great hand at writing for papers ; but when I see a chance to have my name in print and a little money at the rear end of it, I am not the man to back down. Though this is an old joke, yet I shall give it again. Some men talk because they have something to say, others because they have to say something. Now I shall talk ; and you listen in order to notice whether I have something to say or whether I say something or nothing. It is a custom among speakers to introduce their subjects with a few jokes ; over which, if a man choke, so much the bet- ter. But, by the way, gentlemen, do you know the soldier ' s definition of a kiss? i Some of you are soldiers now, some of j you were soldiers once, some of you may be soldiers some day. Well, it seems that you do not know the answer ; and yet you ought to. The action may be very pleas- j ant, or the opposite ; of that you may | judge for yourselves. The answer is, a report at headquarters. Well, why don’t you laugh? Can’t you appreciate a kiss- ing joke, or, perhaps, rather a joking kiss? I believe you don ' t appreciate these. Ha! young man, why do you have a long face? Ah ! I understand. You tried the game j once too often ; and from chagrin and ; mortification because your attempt failed, your jaw dropped. Pull your jaw back to its original posi- tion and fasten it there so that it may not fall again. I advise you to make one more trial ; you might fare better. This just ' reminds me of the man who went to the fair and paid one fare for a fair one and one fare for himself, and then made a fuss because he thought that the transaction wasn’t fair. Yet, most certainly it was a fair (fare) transaction. But, really, gentlemen, this article is a speech which I once delivered Naturally you find the style of certain parts highly elevated. In one place you may have noticed that I “choked.” It happened thus because someone had spl ashed mud upon my trousers ; which mud, having become quite dry, fell off ; my voice fell with it, and falling down the wrong way choked me. However, I have recovered — my head with my hat, which at that time was off. But I did not “ get very far ” with this article. You remember, however, that someone once said that a man must eat only so much that, upon rising from table, he may already have an appetite for his next meal. So, I have given you just enough to make it known to you that you have an appetite for more. You now have an appetite such as a billy-goat would en- joy — an appetite for some paper softened with some ink. Well, at some later time I shall again favor this paper with an ar- ticle, — indeed, with some articles, pro- vided that a sum of money is ready for me by way of compensation. At present I am only too glad to be able to get a little pecuniary assistance, and to see my name in print. W. E. Stern. 209 THE GAZETTE. AN ANGRY LETTER. IN THE STYLE OF 1! E. Ever since I received that letter from you, I have been in acute pain, agony, distress, and suffering. Why, what can I do ? I wrote you what I thought was ■clear, apparent, visible, plain, unmis- takable, and distinct ; two days later, upon reading your letter, I find that you wholly, utterly, and totally mistook my meaning. Indeed, I believe that you did this purposely ' , that you are forming against me a plot, a combination, a con- spiracy ' . Sirs, let this come to light ; I am no man with whom you tamper with impunity : you will soon find that out. You were too hasty ' , premature, rash ; but now you have run yourselves into the mud, now you may remain there ; I cer- tainly, truly, and assuredly, shall not even endeavor, try, or attempt to extri- cate you. You have fallen in ; now stay in, and await the consequences. I know that you now wish that you were extricated, free, and liberated ; for you are afraid and fear that you cannot gain your end and aim. I know that you can’t ; for I have with me certain powers, means, and resources which I can bring to bear in so strong and powerful a manner that nothing can withstand or resist them. I am not sorry for you ; you have done your worst, now take the consequences. You ? why you are fragile, feeble, frail, delicate ; you are so I weak that y ' ou couldn ' t harm or hurt a j flea or fly — it would fly away first ; you are so weak that you can’t raise your little toe ; and now you are going to try to resist me. The next thing that will happen will be that fright, alarm, and panic will fall upon you ; you will be enveloped in them, as when a letter is put in its envelope preparatory to mailing. You are cross and ugly now ; what will you be when your efforts are found to be in vain, fruitless, useless, abortive? I, with my mind, shall shatter, destroy, and break all your efforts, all your powers ; I b}- myself shall frustrate, defeat, and foil you in anything, in everything. I am usually quiet and gentle, like a lamb ; but, when I am roused, I am as frightful and terrible and awful as any lion. My mind is decided ; and when that is, then I am firm and steadfast. You were fero- cious, cruel, inhuman ; but wait, — my turn comes, too, and is very near at hand. Now, from this time on, I hold you as my enemy, whom it becomes my duty to check, even to destroy ; you hold me as your enemy. Now comes the fight ; and you will see your finish while I shall satisfy myself with the bloody, glorious, and numerous fruits of my excellent victory. This to you in no friendly, cordial, peaceful spirit, but with enmity, animosity, hatred, and hostility. F. O. E. Wants. WANTED — Some person to pay all my expenses. C. R. Allen bach.

But Katherine, my Katherine, The day will now soon come When I the bliss again shall have Of visiting your home.

I never could Give all the praises in these few poor lines. Thy eyes of charming blue do always shine With pleasure ; and besides, thy hair so light And fine hath always framed thy brow as if It were a picture set in handsome frame ; Thy lips are red as any rose could be, And .‘■weet enough at any time to kiss. Thy face seems carved with the greatest skill ; And, too, there is therein displayed always A curious something which betrays a sweet, A pleasant liveliness, which pleases all ; And brings the men down to thy feet straightway As suitors for thy gracious favor. — Now I find my task too great, as I foretold. So pardon this attempt, I pray. With this I close. Thy gracious favor let me now enjoy. A College Dictionary SHOULD CONTAIN THE FOLLOWING.

There he stayed for just one year ; Then he came away From that home of greenness, Famous for his keenness. That happy, very happy, man Became a Sophomore. As a Sophomore he Had much brass ; Thinking he knew everything, Noted in his class ; Many flunks in Botany, Latin, and Anatomy. That man, conditioned terribly, Became a Junior. Now he is a Junior, “ Just the stuff ; ” Working hard both night and day, Getting tens enough. He has mental ripeness, Plenty of politeness, All the qualities you wish Within a Junior. Soon he’ll be a Senior, So sedate ; Thinking not of anyone But his own dear Kate. Passed examination ; At the expiration, Indeed, of college life, he then Will B. A. graduate. 220 The Future of ’Ninety-Nine. Beck’s future will be occupied in journalism. He has already sent in an application as editor of the New York Journal . Bender has some bright prospects in view. He intends to go as a missionary among the Esquimaux, and with his warm heart melt their frozen hearts to Christendom. Berg, a solemn man, will lead the church choir, since he is a fine male soprano. Buchman’s first end in view is to marry a wife to take care of his education. He will become a country minister. Case intends to become a chaplain for the Card Party Associa- tion of Allentown. D. E. Fetherolf will be a barber in the future, and will be a specialist in dressing mustaches. E. A. Fetherolf will choose animal surgery. He is about to advertise for old horses to perform operations. L. W. Fritch will be an evangelist and work for the cause of prohibition. He is a strong advocate of Swallow. F. N. Fritch will rival Bryan as boy orator. He intends to put a new construction on the silver question. His aim is to become a prominent politician and advocate woman suffrage. Hartley intends to become a cornet player of the future Orchestra of Philadelphia. He thinks that blowing the cornet will extend his lips and round them out in proportion to his nose. Hartzell is interested in dancing. He intends to become the great dancing master of Allentown. Will reside at Treichlers. Hausman will be a noted musician. He will be seen parading the streets of Allentown with a bag-pipe, entertaining the people on the streets. He keeps time with his head and points after the notes with his nose. Heilman will be pastor of the future Mission Church of South Allentown as a favor to his lady friend and future father-in-law. Heist proposes to join the Old Women’s Club of Emaus as their spiritual adviser. He is an all-round man, and is well qualified for that position. Henry has, while at Muhlenberg, become much interested in natural history, especially in birds. Indeed, he is beginning to think of keeping chickens. We predict that his occupation after leaving college will be conducting a henery on scientific principles. Klick intends to become a hod-carrier for the New York Building Association, because his shoulders are specially adapted for it. Koch will be chief cook and bottle-washer of some prominent hotel in Philadelphia. Kopp in ten years from now will be known as the Rev. I)r. Kopp, of New York, successor to Talmage. A. A. Kunkle will be found practicing law at Koclisville. Then he will be called the father of the village, his head having become bald since his marriage. His past will be forgotten, and much of his time will be spent with his family. 2?I H. A. Kunkle is the only man among the college students of America who resembles Admiral Dewey. He will be found seated in the presidential chair of some large university. McCullough will be a horse-dealer. We advise him to be more careful in the future than he was in the past, that they do not stray away. Raker proposes to become a prominent lawyer in the near future. He will turn to banking as soon as he has a wife to take care of his money. This man has a very good head, but has to part his hair in the middle to keep it level. Reagle expects to reside in Regal Pomp as general superin- tendent of the ladies’ dancing schools of that section. Rex will be king of men and lover of women, maid-servants excluded. Seiberling will write jokes for Puck and Judge. Steigerwalt has already reached the summit of his ambition — marriage. His future will be occupied in writing a book en- titled, “ My Experience in Wooing.” Trumbower expects to do nothing, as he says he is able to live on the interest of his debts.

For many a student lying is much easier than “ getting up ” in the mornings. It is a good thing not to tell the Profs, everything you know ; let them look up some things for themselves. In olden times men often fought with clubs and spades ; but nowadays hearts are the objects fought for, and diamonds are often used to gain them. A man who at a picnic sits upon a fence is doing something which is very offensive to some people. All young men, especially students, should follow this piece of advice: When inclined to use angry words, stuff the mouth with food or water until restored to the usual peaceful condition. There are many things to sit on besides chairs — for instance, young men with petitions Dr. B.: “Mr. Boyer, where is the bob of the pendulum in this figure? ” Boyer : “At the end of the pendulum.” Of what part of a grindstone does Geiger remind you? Of a crank. Berg had a rather exciting time one morning. About nine o’clock he struck a snag in Astronomy, and a little later an idea struck him. Schofer (handing a glass of water to Wenrich) : “Take a drink.” Wenrich : “ Drink yourself.” KunklE, H. : Oh, no ; you mean drink ihe ivater. His Mother (to Willie Pascoe at the supper table) : “ Will you have another piece of cake, Willie? ” Wileie : “No.” His Mother : “ No, what? ” Wn.LiB : “No cake, of course.” Miller : “ How many glasses full of beer can you drink ? ” Applegate: “None; I always drink my glasses empty.” That man made an impression, who, when “ putting up ” for the night at a country inn, spoke as follows: “Extricate the quadruped from the vehicle, stabulate him, devote an adequate supply of nutritious nourishment ; and when the aurora of morn shall again illuminate the oriental horizon, I will reward you with a pecuniary compensation for your amiable hospitality.” A young Freshman asked his maiden aunt: “Aunt, why didn’t you get married? Didn’t you have a chance?” She replied : “ There are very few women who do not get a chance.” The Freshman then said (with a wise look) : “ But, perhaps, you are among those few.” FriTch, F. N. : “ Where are you going? ” Hartzell : “ I’m going off.” Fritch, F. N. : “Oh, that’s not necessary; you’re ‘off’ already. ” 228 FEGLEY (in the laboratory) : “ Doctor, if you pour water on that substance, what will happen ? ” Fritch, R.: “ The substance will get wet.” Flexer was making an effort to scan dactylic hexameter. The professor, bv way of encouragement, said : “ You have two feet already ; now it won’t be difficult to find your other four.” Henry : “ Did you ever know of that mistake ? ” Fritch, F. : No; tell me about her. Who is she? Where does she come from ? ” VERGER : 11 What’s the matter, Boyer? ” Boyer : “ You broke my clmw s sir (chaucer).” If you pronounce the initials of A. A. Kunkle’s name to- gether, it will give you an ache (aak). Brunner remarks that a certain man has very little nose, and he knows it. Lentz, instead of saying “I never drink a drop,” says, “I never drop a drink. ” Shortly after Lutz came home from the war, there was heard in the hall the following: “ I don’t see as much of Lutz as we used to. ’’ “ What’s the matter? Was there any trouble between you ?” ‘‘No; since he went to the front he has lost about twenty pounds.” KruTzky : “In Transvaal the} ' call a goat a klipspringer. ” Dr. S.: “I don’t know about it ; I never lived among the goats. ’ ’ Fritch, L. : “ All Alburtis people pay their debts. ” GEIGER : “ Give me those fifty cents you owe me, please.” Horn, W. : “ Robbers sometimes fail to rob a certain place; yet they are robbers. ’ ’ Brunner : 11 No ; then they are ‘ rubbers.’ ” When Dr. Dowell brought out a blowpipe, Krutzky, never having seen one before, said: ‘‘Fellows, that’s a bagpipe; the Highlanders use that.” “Look at Freddy Fetherolf walking with that girl about a foot taller than himself.” “ Well, you see, he wants a girl to whom he can look up.” Kuntz remarks that the year 1900 begins the 20th century. Gable often speaks of good Rhoads. Seibereing : “ Is it raining still ? ” YerGER : “ No, its raining water.” Geiger : “ What are you going to do to-night? ” Nick : “ Anybody that wants ‘ to be done.’ ” Professor of Chemistry: “ Add this acid, and the result is a deep blue color.” StaTeer : “ Ah ! This is a deep study.” Sykes : “I have a pain (pane).” BaeEIET : ‘‘Where?” Sykes : “In my window.” Fegley ' : “ How is it that Miss S. now sings soprano ? She used to sing alto.” YERGER : “ It is only an example of higher education.” Rothenberger tells us that he raises his calves, not on milk, but on a bicycle. “ You want to get what you need (knead), — that is bread.” ‘ ‘ She will come in time for supper to-morrow. ’ ’ “ How do you know it? ” “ Letter come.” Fegeey : “I must get my shoes half soled again.” BuckalEw : “ And yourself fully sold.” E. J. H. (11.05 P M.) : “There ' s nothing funny in these jokes about young men staying late when they call on the girls.” Miss K. (with a sigh and a yawn) : “I see nothing funny in them either.” Allenbach once remarked : “ For to-day in Geometry we have the plane; and we will certainly make it plain for him (the professor).” RoThenberger (at dinner) : “ Pass the cats up here.” Professor: “ What is a peninsula? ” Trump : “ An island almost surrounded by water.” Professor of Latin : “ Define quid.” Snyder : “ A piece of tobacco for chewing.” Rex: “ Are you ever beside yourself?” Henry : “ No ; I always manage to get beside her.” W. : “ You’re fair.” KRESSLER : “ Keep quiet ; you are not a trolley conductor.” Krutzky once had a ticket upon which was printed: “ Admit bearer to the insane asylum.” Woerth was out botanizing one day. In the course of his wanderings he came to a farm-house ; and, being rather thirsty, and very fond of buttermilk, he stopped and asked for some. Some was given to him. But this proved insufficient, and he asked for more. More was given to him. The good woman offered him more yet ; whereupon he said : “I should really like some more ; but I do not like to deprive you of your buttermilk.” Upon this the woman said : “ Oh, don’t mind that ; we only keep it for the hogs.” Kuntz cut his hand in order to see his nerves — that was handy; but to cut some other person’s hand for the same purpose — ah ! that is handier. Professor (concerning certain Latin jokes): “ These are supposed to be jokes.” Nagle : “ They are better than many which we hear every day.” E. Fetherolf : “ When the china is broken, will one of the pieces be given to us? ” Bartholomew : “ Have you a match ? ” Kuehner : “ No ; I haven’t found my match yet.” FriTch, R. (about to run a race) : “I ' ll put up fifty cents that I can beat you. What will you put up against it ? ” YERGER : “ A fast run.” If you are outwalking and you see a rain coming up, at once take the proper steps to reach home. Miller, ’02, claims that there is no Latin alphabet. Many men assert that they can go almost anywhere on their face. They should have sense enough to know that they go, not on their face, but on their feet. Dr. F. (in Latin class) : “Who are supposed to be speaking in this satire ? ” Freed : “ Horace and an augur.” Dr. E. : “ Horace is one, but the other is not an augur ; he is a bore.” Freed : “ Well, is not an augur a bore ? ” Some people have a very ' high spirit, but a very ' low sole. Shinier one day remarked: “The Horns are blowing too much.” Geiger : “I don’t understand how Professor D. marks? ” BalliET : “ He marks with red ink ” Until recently Luther Fritch did not know what a deaf- mute is. Trumbower : “ I suppose you knew that I was going with Miss now.” Raker: “No, I did not; but I suspected it. I heard she shook S for nothing at all.” Are castles in the air light-houses? Y is fond of taffy. Horn, W. : “Doctor, when did the Indians come to this country ? ” Dr. W. (provoked) : “ Well, they never told me.” Casf: (in society) : “In this picture each man is represented as pointing to the man next below him and saying, 1 It was not I.’ At the end there is an ass. The ass is the last one to say anything about it ; and the ass said, ‘ It was not I.’ ” W (trying to stamp out a fire) : “ You are all cowards : none of you will put this fire out ; I am the only one who will do it.” R : If we had such feet we could, too.” A certain 1M. C. graduate doesn’t know what a coquette is. Poor fellow ! AlEENbach (giving Flexer a pill) : “ Oh, these are all right ; Dr. gave them to me. If they kill you, sue him. Woodring (talking of Chinamen) : “ Did you ever see them eat ? ’ ’ Rupp : “ No ; but I’ve smelt the meat.” Woodring: “Oh, rats!” Drumheleer (buying various kinds of cakes) : “What is the price of kisses?” Gird (serving) : “A penny apiece.” Drumheeler : “ Give me a dozen.” Schofer (reading an essay) : “ The bear bared his breast, and bore the dart.” Gease (repeatedly, in the Fresh. -Soph, foot-ball game) “ Isn’t it soon time now for them to yell for me.” Professor Doweee (at chemistry recitation): “What did you learn from to-day’s lesson? ” Deisher : “I learned how to make matches.” When Kistler was nominated for an office in society, he arose and said : “ I recline.” — STE I G E R WALT’S HOWLING SUCCESS. In Conclusion. « is “ Experience teaches that no one thing will please everyone. That nothing is more easie than to finde a colour of exceptions. That men’s censures are as various as their palats .”— Junius Florilegus , (5yp. T HESE sentiments well express our thoughts as another Ciarla is to be added to those having preceded it. The work has been one of many months and not that of a few days. It has been the constant aim of the Board to present a volume that will reflect credit upon the class and the College. We assure you, dear reader, that this has been the work of twelve men and not of one. To the Assistant Editors, who have labored so successfully and whose work can be seen in their respective departments, I am desirous of extending my hearty thanks for their support. To the Artists, whose work we could not possibly do without, I wish to extend my congratulations. Now, upon the Business Managers, for the manner in which the financial part of this volume has been carried out, we certainly must bestow many thanks. I also wish to express my gratitude towards Messrs. Berkemeyer, Keck Co., and their corps of printers, who so ably helped us in a thousand and one different ways in order to better the mechanical features of this book. Years will pass and this annual will be forgotten, kind reader, but if you are drawn closer to old Muhlenberg by means of it our work has not been in vain. May this volume prove an honor to the Class and the days spent at Alma Mater.
