Text from Pages 1 - 278 of the 1902 volume:

r • ' Volume THE CIARLA. Per Volume, $1. Address, WARREN GEIGER, Muhlenberg College, Allentown. Pa. To PHILIP DOWELL, respected and honored as a professor, esteemed and regarded as a friend, this volume is gratefully dedicated by The Class of Nineteen ' Two. CIARI.A BOARD, Preface. C l ' STOMS, when good and wholesome, become rides and laws. Nine years ago the first Ci.vrla w ' as published by the Class of ’93, and successive issues have established a custom which has become an unwritten law. Always law-abiding, the Class of 1902 promptly at the time elected her staff of editors, who have labored faithfully to perform the allotted work. W ' e have added new features and have laid aside a few of the old, notably the “ Club " Department. Established precedent in arrangement has not been interfered with in order to .secure originality, neither have we omitted parts pleasing to readers because they have appeared in other issues. Novelty iu the treatment of each article has been our aim, and we think we have accomplished that intent. The fact that this volume is more profusely illustrated than its predecessors will, we think, add to its interest, appearance, and effect. In the name of the Cla.ss of 1902 we publish this book, with the hope that it may not only cause pleasure to students, alumni, and friends, but may also be of real service to the institution. 6 COLORS: CARDINAL AND STEEL GRAY.

A jolly throng, the Profs’ delight. We are, we are ! A class in which there’s strength and might, We are, we are 1 In which 3 ' ou learn to yonr surprise There’s brawn and brain that’s bound to rise, To a constellation in the skies. Nineteen ’One. 17 SENIOR CLASS. Professor E Rustico ( RF.VISED VERSON, COR VRIGHTEl). ) A serious coined} " in four acts, presented in The Ciarla Opera House, Muhlenberg College, Pa. The facts in the play are true. Published for the first time. ACT I. Scene I. — A squad of boys on college campus. Buff Worth with paste bucket, Perc. Rube with brush. Come boys for a jollification ! Let’.s have it without moderation ' Let’s do up the town. Let ' s do it up brown. Let’s off with our posters and paste 1 We’ll make the town frown ; Old grannies will brand it — disgrace. Raether at this point produces the oatmeal bottle and takes another “ swig ” Scene II. — Fem. Sent, and suburbs. Night. Fritz Reagle and Drumheller are busily engaged covering the porch with 1901 posters. Ponto, the St. Btillnard dog, guards them very faithfully. White forms are .seen at windows above. ( Girls, singing in unison. ) Come boys, y ' ou are awfully " nice. With us y " ou cut oceans of ice ! There’s Schockery Schock, he’s a regular “ bute ” And Benner and Bickel are awful cute. So be of good cheer. For K nappy ain’t here. As a signal we’ll tap the roof twice — We’re as lonely as lonely ' can be. There is room on the window for three, etc. The music was sr heartrending that Kres.sler and Solomon Martin Wenrich ascend to the roof by way of the porch-posts. There was a cooing and billing under the eaves. Schell, who weighs 342 lbs. av., tried in vain to climb the post and succeeded only in tearing his trousers. Kressler and Solomon ( to the girls) : 21 I low can we bear to leave you ! One parting kiss we’ll give you ! ( To the others. ) We don’t care what you style ’em, They ' re the pick of the Fern. Sem Asylum. ( Tableau. They jump from roof. Fonto chases them. ) ( Boys ' chorus . ) Oood night, ladies, good night, etc. We’re going to leave you now. ( Girls. ) Come back ! Come back !

( Chorus by all. ) (Tune.— ' ' ' three Black Crows.”) We are the Class of Nineteen ’One, We are, we are. And every one is a hickory (?) gun. We are, we are, Cinnabuns and chewing-gum Is the staff of life of Nineteen ’One. We’re all right, we’re out for fun, Nineteen — Nineteen ’One ! W’e’re all right, we’re number one ! Nineteen ’One. Ebenezer Wackernagle and Fetherolf No. 2 come forward with a keg. ( I " oices. ) Hoorah I Hooray ! Ah ! 22 Schofer. — “ Beer for the bu ich and plenty of lunch. Hurrah !” Sieger . — “ Give me a Carrie Nation cocktail I” ( They sifig. ) Oh, we’ve cornered a drink superfine, It ' s the only real tiling in its line, Its A number one, brand — Nineteen naught one — Far better than Schlitz every time. .And such jolly bartenders are we That with ease we could drink a wlujle sea. but they jiut got a keg So we ' ll now pull your leg — Just look happy and lay down the fee. ( Dance.) Oh, come all ye tanks. And render up thanks. .yil come who with bacchus claim kin. And watch D.inny the spigot put in. Put in. Ami watch Danny the spigot put in. Danny comes forward with hammer and spigot and the entire company is swamped in a shower of beer. The encores were in ttnknown tongues. Danny next favors the stage hands with ati instrumental vocal .solo, entitled “ Die Makungy Mate.” Tableau. Cukt.vin. ACT III. On the streets of Allentown. Not printed by request of the Board of Health. ACT IV. A room in college dormitory. Great hilarity. Ike Nagle relates an Indian story rather loquaciously ' . At least a dozen students gather around, listen attentively and blow a halo of smoke about his head. He grows very pale. Exit. ( Voices outside. ) Gee whiz ! Shinier, propped up in a corner on the trunk and amusing himself for a time with amorous ditties, gives up the gho.st. Doc. Yoder, at this juncture, standing on table in center of room and holding a glass of (?) in his left hand, makes a rousing Prohibition speech for the benefit of the wayward sons of 1901. Tremendous cheering. 23 Bickel thinks it is time to retire and proceeds to take off his stockings before removing his shoes. Kline and Serfass assist him in his dilemma. Bill Fetherolf next desires the attention of the stndent-body and makes a few “ stunts.” After some ver} clever contortions he is removed to his room. At this point Raether canters across the stage, suggests another ” swig ” all around at the oatmeal bottle and gathers the class for a wind-up rag-time song.

" ) I N the fall of ninety-eight there came to Muhlenberg a Class Which in excellence and valor all the others did surpass ; And Its menihers they were corkers all, for they would take no sass, And the others soon respected them, or promjitly went to grass. Chorus. — ;|| When 3-ou .see the Orange and the Hlue, Step aside and quickh- let us through. For we are memhers of the Class of Nineteen ' Two And we are hot stuff and that is no lie. ||: Just as soon as we started in the dear and classic hall. We joined hands and stood united just as brothers, one and all ; And we pledged ourselves to bear each other’s troubles, great and small. When there came from one among our midst a true and needy call. — Cho. But it was not long before the profs, our ranks began to scan .‘ iid their eagle e ’es soon found some fault with here and there a man ; But we showed them that their brilliant minds our greatness could not span, And we challenge anv one to find our equal if he can. — Cho Now as through the classic halls of dear old Muhlenberg we go. When we speak of Nineteen ’Two our cheeks with | ride shall ever glow For she is the pride of .■ llentown, as all the jieople know. And we mean ju.st what we ' re saj-ing or we would not tell you so. — Cho. 29 THE CLASS OF 1902. L ike as the little snowflakes that on the earth descend, Each small and thin and crystal, and, too, each one distinct, Unite to weave a garment to deck this mundane sphere. To make things clean and shapely, to cover o’er the drear. So came we forth as Freshmen, from haunts before unknown ; Rural schools had lost their charms, our sphere we had outgrown. Ignorance ' s chill crept o’er our young and heated brains ; Congealed, our thoughts crystallized, and followed other strains. Forth from the clouds of darkness each led his little light. To add it to some greater, to help to make it bright. As Freshmen were we valiant ; we fought our battles well ; We alwaj’s knew our lessons, as all our profs, can tell. From educated people the sentiment leaked out, ‘ Your Demon of the Desert was great, beyond a doubt.” When sophomoric wisdom coursed through our well-built heads, IMidnight oil we oft consumed, enraptured, missed fjur beds. Mathematics held no dread, we used our eagle eyes ; Works of Horace, full of wit, we read without surprise. How fondly did we gather the leaves, and flowers, too. Nature mourned the loss of her receptacles of dew. We beat the ’03s in foot-ball, eighteen to nothing ’twas ; Our Harrisburgian banquet ju.st made the Freshmen buzz. By some misunderstanding, before the Governor, We ])osed as “ undertakers,” because we came before. With much anticipation we longed for Junior year, To publish our Ci.VRi.A, depicting good and queer ; We wanted more of study, and not so much of work ; ’Twould make it somewhat lighter to play the role of ” shirk.” We went into the gardens of ancient lit’rature. And delved among the ruins of Latin, Greek, and Moor. The “ ologies ” we mastered, we met them as they came ; And as to dear old I’hysics, we fairly love the name. We ploughed right through our German with vigor, zeal, and vim. And often tried to figure how we might get a gym ; But, with all our chemistry, with tricks and ways replete. We have to ” give it up,” boys, ' tis sorry to repeat. Thus, with our noble colors, the Orange and the Blue, E ' er going on before us, we marched our three years through. 30 History of 1902 I WAS the descendant of a long; line of sea captains. Our family had lived for generations on a bluff overlooking an expanse of the Pacific, the sublimity of which awed me into silence every time I beheld it. When a child I imagined that the weaves, as they took shape in far-off space, and finally broke at my feet, brought me.ssage.s from other lands. If the surf happened to be quiet, I took it as a sign that the great world was at peace ; but w ' hen the waves rolled in mountain high, and in their anger lashed the unoffending beach, I felt sure there must be strife, and eagerly desired to investigate. Thus I read nature’s page as it lay spread on the footstool of Nature’s God ; the lessons thus learned were invaluable and never forgotten. At an early age I was fully capable of entering into the spirit of Tennyson when he wrote ; “ Break, tjreak, break. On thy cold gray stones, O Sea ! And I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me.” W’hen I became seventeen years of age, my father took me on my first o) age. ’Twas with unbounded delight I boarded the vessel, in my eyes as fine a merchantman as ever plowed the deep. P ' or five days we sailed with gentle motion, when an ominous cloud appeared on the horizon. Suddenly the rain poured in driving sheets upon us, and the ship, catching the fury of the waves, floundered and careened in blind despair, like a drowning man. The scene was one of awful grandeur, making one think the judgment was at hand. I felt my utter helple.ssnes, and re ' erently bared my head and was still. In the hands of skilled seamen that vessel battled with the waves as though it had a life to lo.se : but it was a mere splinter to the enraged elements. Suddenly with a groan and a deafening crash, it struck a rock and was shattered to pieces. I was hurled with stunning force on an island, hitherto unnoticed. Wuth a prayer of thanks for my deliverance, I looked about to see what had become of my father and the crew. Horrible sight ! There he knelt, surrounded by a few of his faithful crew, at the mercy of the waves, on a flimsy piece of wreckage. Even as I looked they were engulfed in seething foam and disappeared into a watery grave. The next moment I sank unconscious upon the barren beach of an unknown island. Imagine my surprise on awaking in a very paradise. I had been carried by an old man, with flowing white beard, into a valley that might well have been 32 the cradle of peace. It was an ideal spot, basking in the gentle smiles of an approving snn, and protected from tlie destructive breath of an angry ocean by two hoary mountains, like giants guarding a treasure. Soon there gathered around us a strange people. At a glance one could see that their peaceful abode had left its impress ujiun them. They acted toward one another with brotherly kindne.ss, and I observed an eagerness on the ])art of each to serve my benefactor. It was plain that he was at once them leader, friend, and father My rescue having been effected toward the close of day, they .soon had me comfortably established for the niglit. At daybreak, hearing all astir, I arose and pre.sently met him to whom I owed my life. On hearing my .sad tale he drew me toward him, and comsoled me with the sympathy of a father Later I remarked to him that the relation exist- ing between him and “ his people,” as he called the natives of the i.sland, was .‘■o touching in its tenderness, that I could not forbear asking him to explain what circumstance had brought him hither, and how he had .so completely won the hearts of the islanders. ‘‘ My .son,” said he in reply, ” there being no way at pre.sent of re.storing you to your people, you will have to remain with us for a time. It is evident that you have had v ery little worldly experience, so I will gladly give you my brief history, hoping you may profit thereby, be it ever so little. ” lu the first place, the secret by which I won the hearts of ‘ my people ' is none other than the divine injunction, ‘ love thy neighbor as thyself.’ But this much, in a .short time, you would have been able to gather for yourself. ‘‘ To my history. I was the son of a wealthy broker. As a father, my sire was beyond reproach ; but (and here I learned my first great les.son) he was umscrupulous in his financial dealings with others. At the age of ninetv;en I was allowed the choice of my Alma Mater. I cho.se Muhlenberg, in Eastern Penn- s)lvania, entering ‘ in the fall of ninety-eight.’ Often have I recalled the time spent there with fondest recollections. Our class, regarded as very unruly, numbered about thirt} ' , and was composed of manly young fellows, who since have proved to the world that they are true men. ” Never can I forget the friendly conte.sts in foot-ball, and the rush, in which we proved our physical superiority over rival classes. Then, at the end of our Freshman year, w e returned home for a brief rest, while the college community stood gaping open-mouthed at a spectacular drama we had given for the amusement of ourselves and the consternation of others. ” Well, in our Sophomore year, regardless of all opposition, we swooped down upon the State capital, early one winter morning, stormed and carried the city, and effected an interview with the Governor. Seeing no alternative, as we dictated our own terms, he placed the storehouses of the city at our service, and. 33 for two days we ‘ feasted on the fat of the land.’ Well satisfied we returned to our aerie, and shocked the virgin ears of our fellow collegians with the account of our escapade. “ When we became Juniors we laid a.side the.se little exploits and settled down to the dignity of our position. In the early part of this year my father lost everything in a tran.saction that brought disgrace upon our family. I was taken from college, and advised to leave for some distant land. This I did. In the course of the voyage we were shipwrecked here, much as you have been. I alone survived, thanks to the .services of ‘ my people.’ When I came they were little better than savages. My life has been consecrated to their uplifting ; judge for yourself whether I have failed or succeeded. My story is ended.” Well, dear reader, for months we sighted no sail. Finally I decided to .stay on the island. Ten years later, my benefactor, full of years and rich in good works, died in my arms. ” His people” are now my people, and to the work that claimed his life I have given mine. May I enjoy but the tenth of his success : then will I die content. (The above is from a work published in i960.) R. B. Lynn. 34 DreK ' (7.P.hi7fi. Sophomore Class MOTTO, Colors, “VIRTUS, SCIENTIA.

Are bright as stars at night, And maidens fair Do all declare “ They’re simjdy out of sight.” CHORUS. Rah, Rah, Rah ! Rah, Rah, Rah ! Rah for Nineteen ' Three, She sets the pace for everj’ class As you can plainly see. Rah, Rah, Rah ! Rah, Rah, Rah ! Shout with joy and glee. There’s none on earth that can surpass The Class of Nineteen ' Three. If you should ever see This Class of Nineteen ' Three, It is no jest. They’d be impressed Ujion yonr memor}’ ; h ' or .some are very tall. And others very small. But, on the whole. Upon my .soul. They are the best of all. — CTio. In Virtue we’re on top ; Our Knozvledge none can stoj) ; Our Industry, As 3’ou can see. Is never on the di ' op ; I tell von we’re the stuff. And that’s no idle bluff. The Drab and White, Is just all right. So let that be enough. — C ho. 37 V ' fer SOPHOMORE CEASS. A SOPHOMORE POEM W E are greeted as Sophomores ; A jolly set are we. We are as far from being bores As any class can be. We met the Freshmen on the stairs, — A merry rush it was ! We, fighting like a lot of bears, Made things about them buzz. We held the stairs against big od ls ; We tumbled them “for fair.” It was a sight t’ inspire the gods. For we all did our share. We met them on the foot-ball field, — The score was ’leven — o. We struck their line until it reeled Under each mighty blow. When on our banquet we did go. With us they interfered ; But it didn’t take us long to show That they were all quite “skeered.” A few men dared their entire class. But all without avail. Before them the whole Fre.shmen mass In agony did quail. Yet not alone in struggling mass, But ever3’where we be. We’ve amply proved there is no class Like ours of Nineteen ’Three. 41 From a Muhlenberg; Diary.

The friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to tlij- soul with hooks of steel ; But do not dull thy palm with entertainment Of each new-hatch’d, unfledg’d comrade. Beware Of entrance to a quarrel ; hut, being in. Bear it that the opposer ma} ' beware of thee. Give every man thine ear, but few thy voice ; Take each man’s censure, but reserve thy judgment.

For loan oft loses both itself and friend, . nd borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry. This above all — to thine own self be true ; And it must follow, as the night the da}-.

The sleigh was full (and so were they When they came home at break of day, — Not full of drink as some may think, Although some drank at Bacchus’ brink ) — Full of the jolliest boys that e ' er Were under Muhlenberg’s good care. Singing they went and their merry glee Echoed a Freshman victory. Over the hills to that far-off town “ White from its hill-slope looking down.” That far-off town was Monterey ; The ride was long and cold the day ; The boys a-shivering desired Some drink, that they might be inspired To sing the song of 1904 With earnest zeal and college lore. At Trexlertown the spirits came — At Rothrocksville the} had ” the same,” And so the song with version new Was snug with inspiration true. The sweet .song died away at last As many villages were passed. And then the boys with a vague unrest P ' elt nameless longing in their breast. Three roasted turkeys satisfied The hunger of a long cold ride ; Fried owsters, too, and sauces rare With celery the tables liare. Fine cheese and crackers occupied A place with turkey alongside Choice wines and sips and fine cigars — The product of the finest bars. And other things their pleasure wrought For which the " Sophs” might well have fought. But fight they could not ; for, they knew ' Not what winds Freshmen fortune Irlew ; And so chargin the ” Sophs ” embrace Because they could not give a chase To those who with their liquid flour Had given them a copious shower. But NOW ' tet’sM.a.ve pr. ce from thus d. y Th. t we may have a Fre.shman Pe. y. 51 History of 1904 A nd now the day arrived when the first dawn was rising ; when Aurora had dissipated the humid shades from the sky ; and when suddenly there appeared the strange figure of a child, unknown to the scientific and classical world. In a lamentable plight he stalked forth from the woods, and with the air of a suppliant stretched forth his hands toward the shores of Muhlenberg. As .soon as he descried the arms and dress of those inhabiting the shores, he was struck with terror at the sight. He paused awhile and checked his progress. A moment afterwards he rushed headlong to the shore with tears and prayers, saying, “ Convey me to any part, assi.st me in my cause, and I shall be satisfied.” Kindly received by all with the exception of his enemy (the Sophs), who, however, congratulated him on his safe arrival, he was carefully nursed and given proper attention for the perfection of such a lamentable youth. His first days were quietly passed, wdien the wished-for day approached for the enemy to test his skill and strength. The ninth morning w ' as ushered in by the steeds of the sun with a serene sky, when lo ! his enemy blocked the path leading to the upper regions. The fame and renown of the illustrious youth had drawn together the neighborhood. They filled the shores (halls) with a joyous crowd. Some came to see the youth ; some, too, prepared to try their skill. With all his might and power he .strove to break the blockade, but all was in vain. Finally he surrendered, not as a defeated enemy or a wounded hero, but to take his place with those wdio trod the path before. He was congratulated on his attempts, cheerfully entertained with rude maguificence, and refreshed with a friendly cheer. Not satisfied with his first showing, he was enticed to try his strength upon the field of battle. The youth without hesitation accepted the challenge. It was suggested by his beloved frietids that he should keep a religious guard over his lips and encircle his temples with boughs. This said, he crowned his temples with his mother’s myrtle. The same does his captain, Kriebel ; the same Reichard, ripened in years: the same the boy Henninger, whose example the other youths follow, namely, Ritter, Kleckner, Finch, Stofflet, Haines, Wieder, and Deily. At first fortune was with the youth and his assistants, but at last he became weak and again was defeated, only coming out of the contest with honorable mention. Do not, my dear reader, for one moment conceive the idea that the youth and his companions were overpowered in all their undertakings. Having firmly believed in the old .saying, ‘‘ Revenge is sweet,” he put this principle into practice 52 on the seventh day before the calends of Febrarius. Early in the morning of the said day he was suddenly aroused by an uproar in the halls. Ascertaining the cause he finally came to the conclusion that the appointed time had come for his enemy to absent themselves from their Alma Mater a few days to enjoy the festivi- ties of life, a class who with their skill and .strength boasted that they were the flower of Muhlenberg. The youth, not slow to act, summoned his assistants, who assembled themselves in the lower regions and awaited the enemy’s arrival. With anxious hearts they tarried but a few minutes, when suddenly they came rusliing in .solid columns and, arriving at the middle stairs, immediately the lights were extiugui.shed, and upon them was poured water mixed with flour. “ In no other way,” said the youth, ‘‘can I show the inhabitants in whatsoever city they banquet, that they are the foiir of Muhlenberg.” Jubilant with this victory, he himself concluded to take a day’s outing. Immediately he laid his plans and concluded in no other way could he enjoy himself better than by a sleigh-ride. On the eighth day before the ides of Febrarius he secretly disappeared, and without any hindrance enjoyed the speedy ride to the little village of Monterey. The evening he enjoyed- in .shouting, eating, and drinking. Returning at a late hour to his Alma Matet he again found himself in a lamentable plight. A few words may be necessary as an explanation of this remarkable youth. The name of this illustrious youth is Dennis, who received a Dent on his arm while fighting the enemy and is very often troubled with his Beil. He is de.scended from a family composed of a Goldsmith , Miller, Gardner, and Shcreroi the sheep. He is a mighty hunter and one daj shot a Nen Bert, and when returning home with it he said : ‘‘ Das is Guilt. Du es in der Keller. " Whenever he wi.shes to call his two companies, the first composed of Burger, Leisenring , Sultzbach, Reno, Wuchter, Hoffman, and N. Ritter, who.se watchword is, ‘‘Whose move is it?” and the second composed of Erdman, Hunsicker, Acker, Griesemer . Kebocli, and AfcCutlom, whose watchword is, ‘‘ You must follow suit,” he sounds his big Horn. He frequently travels on country Rhodes and sleeps on a Rick in the fields. We do not wish to make any predictions as to the future of this youth, but trust that in four years all his freshness may have vanished. 53 THE THIRTY=THIRD ANNUAL Commencement Exercises. 54 A SENIOR’S FAREWELL. U PON this hoar}- ledge of rock I hid a long farewell ; My heart throbs wildl}- up and down ; Departure V)rings its spell. When green and fresh I came to town, Torn from my fam’ly tree ; I bore the w ' eight of Soph}’ scorn, Ye maidens counseled me. While Sophomore, I could relate The schemes ni}- brightness planned ; I ' or parties and for theatres. Yon were at my command. In Junior year those moonlight walks Quite set nn- heart on fire ; I found a goal beyond my course. To which I could aspire. Then Senior time brought serious thoughts. And all seemed clear ' fore me ; I pictured some years after then, When I’d be cheered by thee. But, oh, alas ! ’Twas all a dream, And ' twill not come to pass ; 1 now must leave you, aye fore’er.

FOUNDED 1867, T HK mail of intellect and knowledge has ever been called upon to impart that which he knows ; hence a necessity for him to develop his expressive ecpially with his receptive powers. With this end in view the earliest students organized and chartered the Enterpean Literary Society, which offers her members every opportunity to “Watch and Advance.’’ It was in the Enterpean Society Hall that many a Freshman gave his first oration, and by regular attendance at the weekly meetings, during the four years of his course, develojied himself to such a degree that his expres.sive power ever thereafter responded to the demands made upon it. The .society, with its colors Nile Green and Pink, is able to make the old hall appear to her alumni who return once a year a veritable reception-room. The societ} ' has had a progre.ssive past, and at present can feel proud of her members and their indomitable courage. More interest in society work could not be manifest than that shown by Euterpea’s men of quality. The society has added one hundred volumes of Science, Travel, History, Biography, and P ' iction to her library during the last six months. The library now contains two thousand and five hundred catalogued books, and offers her members a grand op[)ortunity for reading and research. Euterpea has ever had her share of honor men, and her prospects for the future are exceedingly bright. May her members ever remember what Euterpea has done for them, and may she always strive to attain the highest results. 80 C.A.WRIGHT PHIlA 7, Euterpean Literary Society MOTTO, " WATCH AND Advance.

FOUNDED 1867. T he vSophronian Literary Society was organized in 1867 by a number of students wlro were desirous of improving themselves in literary and forensic ability. The society adopted as her motto, “ The End Crowns the Work.” Sophronia has been prospering from the time she was founded, and at present she has a well-furnished hall in which to hold her weekly literary meetings, and a library containing about twenty-three hundred volumes. It is needless to extend this history by dwelling in detail upon the character of the work which Sophronia has always been doing. Sufficient it is to state that in the annual society reunions all the former members who are present earnestl} ' te.stify to their appreciation of the literary training received within her walls. May she continue to do the good work which she thus far has done. 82 JFhiiyi Sophronian Literary Society Motto, " The End Crowns the work. ' Colors, WHITE AND Blue.

At the head of this organization is Jacob Scholl, distinguished for his experiments on antimony and platinum. Next to him is Kistler, for whom we predict a bright future as a chemist. Then Miller, who is already doing original work, and whose ideas often differ from all known text-books. The other members are Appel, Heckenberger, McFetridge, and Weisley, all of whom figure very prominently in the laboratory. 93 Senior German OFFICERS. Society. President, Prof. W.

Behold us, then, and contemplate “ our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” HI “ My name is Allen, and I am from Allentown. I am an Appel. I did not drop, but was picked.” This is the favorite expression of Allen Reuben Appel, who, alphabetically considered;’ stands at the head of his class. Accord- ing to h ts own statements he was picked Maj " 2, 1880 ; con- titly he is a May- Appel, and his preservation Ss caused considerable trouble He was picked Salisbury Township, on the outskirts of Allentown, where he lived until 1893, when I the family moved to the city. Since i then Allen has been a notorious street- runner. Although having experience as a clothier, book.seller, employee at the cement works, and proprietor of a star- jij TOf ; vation boarding-house, his experience is really 7 ' erv limited. He has always taken eas}’ and treated the world as a big poke. He was educated in the public schools Lehigh County and graduated from the gjatown High School in 1898. This man’s line of comsanguinity is illmstrious. An rLeld the office of village squire from the time hjjV jl iihtil hAbtook up his abode among the shades. His uncle hacl r? |l| nfluence- upon him, and as a re.sult Allen is a somewhat Tawle -s ' character. You can live in harmony with him when he is in good spirits ! but vt’oe unto thee when he is enraged and begins to grind his bit and paw his hoof ; for although he is onlj ' 5 feet i inch tall and w’eighs but 1 15 pounds, he is mighty He is a good practical joker and witty. We would disclose .some of his jokes, Init such is deemed unnece.ssary , since his photograph is enough of a joke for everybody. 122 In the l);ginning were arrowheads and Indian axes, and on the fourth day of April in the year eighteen hundred and seventy-six, Charles Clinton Bach- man came forth. . i e came forth in a very obscure part of the world, and claims as his natal place a small red brickhouse of one story situatid near the edge of a primeval forest, in which le oak and hickory answered each other’s wail. Look at the gentleman very clo.sely ind yon can readily see features which, while they are not antediluvian, are certainly ancient and give evidence that : his genealogy carries one back con- tinuously to the earliest ages when primeval man was contemporaneous with the cave bear. In fact, to the satisfaction of this gentleman, one genealogist traces him back and claims Nlhat his earliest ancesto rs were arrow- If’’ heads. He spent his earlv boyhood in the woods and fields. This fact is substantiated by DUcolic and sylvan nature. Having been Catasauqua High School and the East kept .school for four consecutive terms. While a student at o mmiuch of his time is consumed in work not pre.scribed in the course. His numismatic, archaeological, philatelic, botanical, and bellicose pro- pensities so completely hold this man in their grasp that good Father Time alone can disclo.se the ultimate consequences. When he goes forth as a numismatist he is very Hebraically inclined, and we would caution jmu to be on your guard when the gentleman calls lest he circumvent you. When he received the proof of this photograph he wished that he might be amongst his ancestors, the arrowheads, to wreak vengeance on the photographer. Weighing 148 pounds, being 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a No. 6 hat and No. 7 feet resting as comfortably as possible in No. 6 shoes, “ Bachy ” leads a quiet life at Northampton. te n ot i poiiniis,, ’Twas ill September, 1876. Peace seemed to reign upon earth. The voices of children at play were heard. The crowing of roosters and the cackling of geese gave evidence of a barnyard.glee club. “ All were subdued and low as the murmurs of love,” when all of a sudden all Sunbury was .showed to hear that ” Party” was born. The e have not yet recovered from the shock ; jther have we. His name is Efenger i liLRERT Bartholomew. He was educated the public schools of Sunbury and Roscoe, South Dakota, and completed his preparation for college at F ' airview Academy, Brodheadsville. According to his geography there are only two counties in Pennsylvania, namel} " , Mon- roe and Northumberland. He had a prominent part in ” The Demon of the ?esert ” as ‘‘Quickset, Jr.,” when he i ited his lines like a phonograph which, n wound up, never stops until it is run e played on a band for several sea.sons and clflfiy prove this. He sings a very pleasant ( ?) if fvbuJd put De Retzke to shame. He weighs 145 inches from one extremity to another. He pos.sesses a half interest in the Gem Dining Rooms, either in the dining-rooms themselves or in something about the rooms, we do not know which. This 3 ' onng man is very neat and precise and desires that all students should follow his example. He is decided!}’ concerned about the cleanliness of our linen, to such an extent even, that he calls in all soiled linen and returns it in a few days in the best con- dition. He is our Chinaman and is married to a laundry in the city. Sometimes he plays ; sometimes he is at the laundry ; and sometimes he studies. He is of an effervescent nature, and his characteristic cries of ‘‘Any laundry to-day?” and ” Machen Sie emol die Thiire auf,” are heard as regularly as the laundry spirit moves him 124 The reverend sire, Pater nosier. One might suppose the father of such a class to be sedate, choleric, and antiquated, but such is not true of Walter Clement Beck, the father of 1902 ; for, if we should say nothing about him to the contrary, tlie accompanying photograph would furnish a superabundance of evidence that the direct anto- nyms of the above qualities are expressive of his ' disposition. Walter was born May 14, 1875, p-at Orwig.sburg. During the early years of his life he attended the public schools of Orwigsburg, from which he was gradu- ated in 1892. He has always taken great interest in church and educational work. Being very active and indus- trious, he sought work and soon found himself mending soles. While he was sithus laboring and musing, he concluded Several years ago astronomers jpil ' i ' entered college fully determined to become ohi i ne . that they had discovered a new moon for erl ppt upon thorough investigation found it to be : the ' refl ' edtf Jj Ick hPaciV caused by a deficiency of hirsute adornment. The prinie ' . G was anxiety as to what he should do when alone with a .lonely hiaid in a lonely place. To make up for this deficiency he tried to raise a mustache, which was a spar.se success, and feminine objections, firmly established on the basis of excessive super-labial irritation, caused its prompt removal. He has a very nice little reputation as an athlete and is an ardent pro- moter of all athletic sports. Walter’s natal month has exerted such an influence upon him that anybody could guess it without fear of missing. He is congenial, affable, and active, just as Nature was at the time. In short, he is a hail fellow well met and possessed of feminine affinities. When you see a man of this descrip- tion weighing 130 pounds and 5 feet 43 inches tall, we would advise you to cultivate his acquaintance. 25 The youngest son, Infans noster. Henry Philemon Brunner, whom } on now behold, first saw the light of Helios the day after his birth ; for, while the date ot his adventTs unknown, it is generally believed that an eclipse obscured all events, -yellow house on the left-hand side of the corner going down. .There were no lights in that locality and dark- less prevailed. When Philemon was but a few years old the family moved to another part of the city, and, fortunately, the the face of the sun on the day of his birth. At appeared in Reading in a green-blue-ye environments of his early life have exerted no influence on his general make-up. He has grown to the height of 5 feet 9 inches, weighs i6o pounds, and finds great comfort in hat and shoes which together number i6. A swell pri- pSi ' . vate school poured enough knowledge into his head to enable him to enter college. Of aristocratic nature, he spends his vacations ' fait ' ' he summer resorts of Stonersville, Exeter, Black r : ' and Oley. Like a prominent official of our country, fitab relief in shooting, but his game is of another kind. Wink the of l jfrsfioots the Felis concolor, he shoots the Cimex lectiilarius , — a cosmopolitan, blood sucking, apterous, depressed bug of reddish-brown color and vile odor which infe.sts houses and especially beds. Mr. Brunner has a strong voice, v hich he uses in the daily chapel worship. His indescribable interest in .society is felt on every side. He is a lover of good musical and theatrical enter- tainments, all of which find him an appreciative auditor and spectator. In addition to his regular college work, he is kept very busy as Orff’s confidential counselor-in- general. The future will find him a gentleman of leisure. 126 SiWi i ' S ' - Whether George Sylvester Fegely is a city chap or a country product has long been a matter of controversy. After his birth, during his earlier years, he grew and nourished in the suburbs of Hamburg, Berks Count3L Pa. (Some f say Windsor Township, hence the above contention.) The ’ I ' X K- public schools of his district claimed the attention of ' -vghife- youthful mind until old Berks con.sidered T ' jSSr .son qualified to attend her premier in- stitution — the Keystone State Normal . School, from which he was graduated with the Cla.ss of ’96. George then for two years made the boys of a school f “smart” by the liberal u.se of the I birch. After spending the spring term men Seminary, he was graduated, ffl ince the fall of 1898 he attends Muhlen- ‘ " " ' ttf J berg and is called either “ Birdie” or _ ' vFeg.” “ Feg ” is neither hypochondriacal phlegmatic. Vim and dash are his promi- in la}’ the old aside. He believes in bettering self, ‘ ‘ future ameliorate the condition of others. Etiquette i ' ifi foj hi npi|i ' p 4 Jrid study, and he obe ’S all her pui.ssant decrees with laudable precision, ejit ' ept, perhaps, that he .sometimes thinks it “ conducive to his health ” when returning from a call to take a few cookies along “ for the children.” Intellectually Mr. Fegely is descended from the philosophers of old and manifests his descent by his aptitude for Greek and Latin, in the use of which languages he is very proficient. Although his relationship to Euclid, the Greek philosopher, is established bej’ond a doubt, geneologists have been unable to trace his descent from Euclid, the geometrician of Alexandria. He is a good speaker, with a flowing, copious style, and unlike many an one who bestrides the enchanter’s hyppogriff of winged words, he produces an ecstatic rather than a soporific effect. Physically he weighs 160 pounds, is 5 feet inches in height, and claims to be strong. We expect George to become a theologian and bring honor upon that day, so near the time when the sun in the ecliptic kfssed Capricorn ; when the twittering wren, breaking the news of his birth, saluted the soaring gull — December 15, 1877. The season had now returned when the nights grow colder and longer. Birds of passage sailed through the air to the shores of tropical lands. The trees of the forest wrestled with the winds. Harvests had been gathered in. The retreating sun was entering the sign of the Scorpion. It was then that John Rai.phus Freed, the gentleman th the naturally kinky hair, who is the only specimen of his kind in our class, was born. He was born in Richland Township, Bucks Count}’, October i8, 1880. Finding rural life too quiet and uneventful and possessed ’ of a desire for the city, he persuaded the family to move to Doylestown, after he had been in their midst for six months, and he has resided there since. Graduated from the Doylestown High School and, having attended private school for two years, he entered college. During iji fi -Freshman year he figured prominently as a ll’jj lmist. People believed his prophecies would ie true, and, fearing consequences, he relin- ; hat. His kinky hair is an attraction for the ;Come mentally entangled in those kinks. He is a ud his abilities are marked in every department of college- woik. He is jry shccessful in forensic oratory, which bids fair for success in his future profession, that of law. His fingers, too, are long and well-developed, — another qualification indispensable to success in the legal profession. In questions of importance he and his chum, Mr. Beck, hold consultations. Among his accomplishments are dancing, skating, and ball-playing. He is well read. But of all that he can do, he cannot for the life of him remember a joke. As an earnest and enthusiastic advocate of athletics, he successfully managed our foot- ball team during the .sea.son of its birth. The greater part of the State has been traveled by him, and very exten.sively has he traveled through the “Land of Janice Meredith.’’ Then as a lawyer will he go forth, and when cases are decided contrary to his views we shall hear him say: “ Ah, haix ! ’’ 128 Here is a man who comes from the wilds of the Roaring Creek Valley, Columbia County. We call him William Henry Gable. William was born May 22, 1875. _Born and reared where the salubrious mountain breezes play 0,ilOn among tile leaves in summer and the cold, chdly winds le through the trees and valleys in winter, he to be .strong and healthy. He is 5 feet inches tall in heelless shoes and weighs 162 pounds. A No. 7 brown plug hat barely covers his head, and No. 8 shoes hold on tightly to his feet. He imbibed his college preparatory training at the Bloomsburg State Normal School and Muhlenberg Academy. During the past summer he canvassed a suit and skirt-holder which, as he asserts, he can prove logically, geometrically, trigonometrically, theoreti- y, and practically to be the best article its kind on the market. His walk is very cteri.stic. He puts one foot ahead, then to bring the other. On his grandfather’s eyard in which he used to pick the trimmings , and it was while working there that he became w a strong desire for religion. He is now preparing nmiseii lor me ministry and may develop into a missionary. Thoroughly con- vinced that single life has its bli.ss, he will lead the life of an anchoretic biped. Father Gable, generally known as “ Pop,” is benevolent, considerate, pacific, and magnanimous. He is decidedly orthodox, and will not permit any namby-pamby theoretical dogmas to influence his faith and religious views. As a faithful defender of the good old beliefs of the fathers, he walks with solemn-measured trea d and low-bowed head, such as becomes his dignity and age, and Sabbath after Sabbath expounds the beautiful and unadulterated truths of Holy Writ. 129 On the fourteenth day of October in the year 1878, in the city of Norristown, a baby boy was born. Rumor has it that it was the most beautiful child born in that city for yeafg and consequently attracted much attention. The first im- porta ntjj ’ent in the life of this child was the selection of a which would be worthy of it, and it is an never to be forgotten. A day was ap- nted when the “ freund,schaft ” met for his purpose. It was considered a great honor to be the one who suggested the name which would be accepted, and all came with the most beautiful names they could think of. When finally they met there was a great disturbance, for each and every one wanted his name given to the child. They unanimously agreed that the only way in which they adjust the matter would be to pitch mies. This was done and the one who ' gested Warren was the fortunate person ; acei s name, WWrken Geiger. Warren was ttSd in the public schools of Norristown and Muhlen- 160 pounds and is 5 feet 9 inches tall. In religion ferati ; in politics he is a Bryanite. Mr. Geiger is dramatically Inclined, and ' He has contributed materially to the success of several plays in Allentown and Norristown. He was a leading character in “The Demon of the Desert ’’ as “ Dwangee, the Arab,’’ and was a credit to himself and his class. He is determined, conser ' ative, and unquestionably a young man of sterling business qualities. Furthermore, he is a “ Sicilian,’’ carries a large knife as a weapon of offense and defense, and is the bodyguard of one of the members of our faculty. Not only is the gentleman dramatically inclined, but also athletically. He plays base-ball, foot-ball, basket ball, tennis, is a good sprinter; in short, he is an all- around athlete, and ju.st as Hercules was regarded as the incarnation of manly strength and patient endurance, the founder of the Olympian games, so must we regard this gentleman, as more than any other, the founder of athletics at our college. 130 ;.!$Chool A solemn stillness reigns supremely. The town has but one street. It is an ordinary country road. The principal buildings are a small church, several dwelling-houses, a store, and post office, together with several Irarns and sheds. Hills and wodHs surround this place, which is situated in ..tt yfilley. No smoke.stacks send volumes of stifling fie?%jvsfiioke into the air, no railroad trains endanger lives of the people, no trolley cars collide pn the dense fogs. The only extraordinary machine which passes through that com- munity is a portable sawmill. In this locality a young man was born in the : fall of 1880. The gentle breezes played amongst the leaves, the squirrel and . chipmunk were laying up their winter’s store of food, the birds w ' ere seeking a warmer clime ; all nature was preparing W ' ,=:Ss 4 Tbr a season of rest. The.se conditions exerted k marvelous influence on the gentleman ' s l • w f tt 1 . j • temperament. — He was educated in public schools of the neighborhood and Oley em ' On his own authority we assert that he was finit illafior. The greater part of his life was spent in Ip b tfid suggestions of one of our athletes, he practiced foot-ball during the Kreshifian vacation in a corn-stubble field with the desired results. His whiskers have associated themselves very closely on the end of his chin, which is the only part of his face that needs .shaving. It is .said that he is a chronic caller, and when he does call you must entertain him ro3 ' ally or you will incur his dis- pleasure. His looks are deceptive, and he makes the best impression if he does not open his mouth. He is very prompt in advancing harum-scarum ideas and likely to run off on a tangent. Isingla.ss is found along the street of his native place, the reflection of which accounts for his brightness. He is 5 feet 7} inches tall. The arduous labors of the course have reduced his weight from 188 to 168 pounds. German is his favorite language, and he is very proficient in this studj " as well as in mathematics. His name is Charles Leinkach Hill Glase. He comes from Oley. Clarence Deck Heckenberger first saw the faint light of “ Old Sol ” on a bleak day in January, 1882. He has forgotten the date of his birth. In fact, he even forgets at times whether his body is not lost to him. Nor can we impute blame_tp him for this latter fault, since his head and body arg ther far apart. He lives at Catasauqua, but e are unable to tell which of two houses is his pbme. Clarence is the only child, and much attention was paid him during the earlier days of his life. During the first few years of his contact with the outer world he became so enamored of its beauties that he almost wandered from the even tenor of his ways, but such is no longer the case. As “ Chaseme, Guardian of the Well,” Mr. Heckenberger was the leading lady in ‘ ‘ The Demon of the Desert,” and his beautiful form andmascu- line feet added much interest to his role. He IM feo took an important part in ” The Old Maids’ g mj ,i ention ” presented at Catasauqua. His com- Jbn js fair and ruddy. He dresses gaudily and ped vests and party-colored neckties. He is an adept Si l fp ' ft Lfnera . Clarence always manages to have a good time, and one way tcr aGedunt for it is the fact that he makes it his business to see the jewelry store daily. His boyhood was spent in raising rabbits and pigeons. His favorite delight is chopping down his grandfather’s apple trees and weeding his garden. He is a patron of the Lyric Theatre, and many plays find him in the audience. His connection with the organizations of the church and the Luther League of the district bids fair to make him a prominent member of the church. This, kind friends, is Matthias Richards Heilig, who hails from Strouds- burg and was born in the year i88i. He was educated in the schools of his native place and under a private ih ' liitructor. “Matt” entered our fold in Sophomore year. He weighs 156 pounds and is 5 feet 7)4 inched tall. Much of his time was spent on his wheel along creeks and lakes in shad} " nooks. Tj s accounts for his verdancy. It was while iding his time at such places as the .;, p;above that he imbibed a knowledge of Nature and its marvelous adaptation of means to ends, in consecpience of which he is an able student of Natural vV . Theology. This gentleman is more remarkable for the things in which he differs from his fellow-students than for ?those in which he agrees with them, erefore, according to Mr. Beecher, he is a e» ric. He has been with us for almost years, and his “ would-be-if-it-could ” .die has not shown any appreciable degree of . The gentleman is very kind and considerate, .. Ulness of one of his clas.smates he served as medical adviser. HislS 4 jy-goat calls and .sighs of relief are very characteristic. His body is beautifully formed. He inherited a violin, on which he finds amusement during his leisure hours. But this does not express it fully. He more than finds amusement, for he is a mmsician of enviable ability and handles his imstrument w ' ith commendable .skill. His abilities as an artist are deserving of high compli- ments, and his drawings reflect great credit upon himself. Such wonderful control does he po.ssess of his facial muscles that volitionally he can present innumerable contortions. Yea, verily, we believe that with the aid of a board fence he could represent one-half of a Punch and Judy show " . He is a Lutheran by preference and descent, and po-ssesses an utter abhorrence of politics. and during; 133 been decid every contest. Dear reader, this is Lkwis x- lvin Ink, of Stone Church, Northampton County, Pa., a foot-ball player of reputation, which reputation might have become national had notv ' the weigh of that already attained snapped his clavicle. After his birth on October 28, 1878, the public schools of the neighborhood and Centreville Academy began this I ' oung man’s cerebral training ; the East ' Stroudsburg Normal School continued it until { 1897, a term’s teaching at Mt. Bethel and Muhlenberg Academy carried it farther, and since the fall of 1898 the college is prolonging it. Lewis, accord- ing to measurements taken by the pro- fessor of Physical Culture upon special reque.st, measures 66.5 inches in height and weighs 2.6 pounds to the inch. His chest expansion and head measurements could not be taken because the tape was of insufficient length in each case. He does not ance, smoke, or sing, but is a good story-teller especially proficient in the department of per- anecdote. During his sojourn at college he has ii)%nd is deserving of the name “ conte.stant, ” for he enters Wije ' only the German. He devours new books and in consequence the beautiful ancient classics suffer. His gastronomical regions are well developed and he is always ready to accept challenges on crackers, bananas, and unadulterated soft water. He is an orator of ability and an earnest ally of W. C. T. U. Mr. Ink is also a botanist of note, and his many trips have developed in him a walker com- parable only to Marshall of “ Walking Purchase ” fame. These are but few of his accomplishments. Whether the future will find him as an artist’s model, librarian of Congress, a brilliant preacher, a Prohibition advocate, or a botanist, we do not know. Ask Jack. i.M The name of this stern-looking gentleman is Jacob ( ' Shellhammer ) Kistler. He was born twenty-fonr years ago in Ellis’ Thai, West Penn Township, Schnylkill Conn ' ty, Pa., and is a neighbor and very intimate friend of Mr. John Eck, " tliE butcher. He received his early training in the public MS, V scBwls and prepared for college at the Keystone State Normal School. “ Jake ” is a remarkable He weighs i6o pounds and is 5 feet 8 pinches from the crown of his head to the sole of his feet. He can do everything better than any other of his classmates, even talk better if need be ; for it is in this way that he wins most of his victories. In fact, we believe his tongue to be the most dangerous part of his body. His favorite expression, “ You are bluffed,” rolls out of his mouth as naturally as water rolls off a duck’s back. He .spends his vacations in canvassing and finds it very pecuniary employment. He has fli vassed the Lehigh and Schuylkill Valleys, and er} favorably and widely known. “Phoeby” is rule in matters of dress. When truncated hats and lon -taile triUpy ' ointed shoes and sailor trousers are no longer seen on the scriipuloSS fashion plates, they are discarded. He will not be seen wearing anything which is not perfectly up-to-date. In fact, he is a gentleman who keeps abreast of the times. He has a good word for the Gem Dining Rooms, either for the rooms themselves or for some of the occupants. Shouldering flour bags in his father’s mill developed a strong son. He is the assistant of the physical director of the college, and the Ereshmen find him a ver} ' competent instructor. His foot-ball reputation died before it had much chance for growth. Why he permitted it to die is unknown to us, and be it sufficient for all to know that it is dead, very dead. Mr. Kistler makes a specialty of Sacred, Church, and Universal History, in all of which he is very proficient. He is called to become a minister. 135 Himni When the busy lark, the messenger of day, sainted the gray morning and fiery Phoebus rose so brightly that all the Orie nt laughed with his light and his rays dried up the silver drops resting on the leaves, a little boy was born at Little «iii Gap, County. The date of his birth is June 22, His name is Quincy Adams Kuehner. He . ' 1 %, ■ 1 h e earlier days of his life in playing with ;iather’s domestic animals and working on small plantation. Always posses.sed of . desire to be learned in all the wisdom of a Mnhlenbergian, he strove to prepare for college, and after a course at Fair- view Academy and two years’ wielding of the ferrule, our faculty saw fit to enter : him as a Freshman. He has manifested great interest in all class festivities since Freshman sleigh-ride, and greatly rets the fact that he saw fit to remain at || e then. Shaving, which consumes much the average student, is only a leap-year th him. His mustache is beginning to development, and we predict that by the uill be able to raise a buttermilk growth, his anticipations ; for he believes that people have fifem coiindenCe a hiustached man, and that he who looks as a man will be received ' as a man. His manner of reciting is very serious and characteristic, and he speaks as though he were telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Quincy protects his face from the elements by combing his hair in the form of an overhanging balcony. Mr. Kuehner is a very industrious student, and withal is very quiet and conscientious. He possesses many of the characteristics of his future calling, a shepherd of a flock, and being 5 feet inches tall and weighing more than 135 pounds, his present weight, he will go forth to elucidate the my.steries of the ages. 136 The little man who is 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 125 ponnds is Anson William Kauffman Lindknmuth. During the earlier years of his life he attended the pubhc schoals. Showing great capabilities, he was sent to the Key- ’ stone State Normal School, from which he was graduated with the class of ’96. For five terms Lindenmuth “_he ” wielded the rod; three terms in his rStive county and two terms in Lancaster. 4 LM ean while he prepared for college. This : gentleman was persuaded to join the . “Association of Householders” and is " now a re.sident of Allentown. His favorite expre.ssion is “ you know,” which he uses in introducing answers to the questions of the professors. Gestures add very materially to the force of his recitations. We do not know, but some say he is very ambitious and some- what cupidus siiarum rcrinn. There are very movements against which he does not object, aiy ' hbject he will though he is alone against the class. f ' fi mLs as a minimum. His latest production in the oratorical He is therefore styled a “ chronic kicker.” r dien he begins to speak you can rest assured that he His is good for line is a twenty-minute oration in the German language (in which he is quite proficient ) on “ The Significance of the Twentieth Century ” and intended to be delivered in ten minutes. In this production he departed radically from his subject and characterized the average student as belonging to a useless and perverse generation. Lindenmuth “he” is very fastidious in regard to his crino.se appendages. A crysanthemum pompadour, or, if you please, a parietal palisade, forms a very conspicuous part of his cranial embellishments. He is a student who does nothing but study. College “extras” have no charms for him, and why should they? He has others. All in all, he is one of tho.se specimens of a college student of which there are not many. 137 Sophojn Silence thy name is Theodore Louis Lindenstruth. Theodore was born August 7, 1879, at Catawissa. Not finding Catavvissa a favorable location, at the end of one year’s sojourn there he persuaded the family to move to Mauch ChnriLj, .,; they remained up to within two years ago.

No. 5) shoes pgand No. 6 1 hats are very becoming to his corporeal extremities. He looks coy, bnt looks are often deceptive. Then he also partakes of the nature of an opossum, in that while he is quiet and reserved he is also sly. He is a good and if you desire to scare him we 7 .dvise j ' ou to place anything in front of but a well-filled plate. This young " fehtleman gives evidence of good home ■fining. They say that small boys should be not heard. Mr. Lindenstruth obeys this :d the very letter. Haughty Freshmen and re.served nature. We believe that he is an , ex em pi ifidal ' i atenf energy and predict that some day he will be a great man and an eloqueW ' speaker. He will then .speak a various language and have a voice of gladne.ss and a smile. He will glide into your darker musings with a mild and healing sympathy that steals away their sharpness ere you are aware. Briefly considered, he is a faithful student, a desirable companion, and in all class affairs a ready and active participant. He is the .son of a Lutheran clergyman and will follow the same calling. 138 indi aen ' gall! What is in a name, anyhow ? He whom we call RnssErx Bower Lynn, by any other name would be equally as much of a gentleman and a model young man. He found it convenient to appear in this world twenty years ago in Easton and iater ' bfc Catasauqua. Russell is the only child father and mother. It is not a rare occurrence jL sL-the only child is a spoiled child, but if this untrue of any child it is untrue of Russell. Hn his class in the Catasauqua High School he was the only boy and was always looked up to by the girls as a leader. Church work claims a large portion of his time. When but a mere boy he served as the as.sistant of his father in the Bethlehem Steel Works. There he saw the large guns as they were being made to prepare the country for national warfare, and he, too, was reminded how important it was for im to prepare for the warfare of life. This . .on he has not forgotten, but is diligently li j ng for life. He believes that cold-water ' S and the .swinging of ten-pound Indian clubs are lent of a strong and health} bod u He weighs 130 p.iund.s and: i i et 4 inches tall. This gentleman is well read in all scientific lines and a veC Vapt scholar of nature. He is a faithful student of Argumentation and u.ses his persuasive abilities on a St. Bernard dog. The violin finds a warm friend in Mr. Lynn, and in addition to his regular work he will make this a life- study. You could not wish younself a better host. No matter how often you visit him or at whatever time, he is always ready to receive you and is most ho.spitable. He is a sound politician and a high-church Lutheran. Some day he will hang out his shingle as an M.D. 139 The smiling countenance of Moulton Edward Hoknbeck M. McFetridge now greets you. He was born in the Indian town of Hokendauqua one week after Inde])endenee Dav, 1882. ..He drank in his preparatory training in the p iblic of his native town and Muhlenberg lily. Moulton is a “ true son of the sod,” Irishman in his class. He is 5 feet 7 ihes a vestigio ad veriicem and weighs 120 iunds. Since he is of a tall and .slender te ' lfiDuild, has a fair complexion and a charm- voice, he readily found a place in ‘‘ The Demon of the De.sert,” as ” Haidee. ” “Mickey” has pleasing manners and the expre.ssion, “ I like jjf yrthe girls and the girls like me,” is sung, jj mdmired, and daily practised by him. is also frequently called “Swipes,” :ause photographs disappear whenever Stalls on the fair sex. A large portion of piiie at college is spent in answering the which he receives. His corres- lalmost as extensive as that of the Prince of lure an assistant. Because of his very fs iu the greatest demand and a goodly number of aft6nyn);6 ' -%|t Mdme in with every mail asking for his “likeness.” During the fall he attempted to raise a mop-like growth of hair, but he abandoned the idea and a two days’ contract job at the barber’s relieved him of his exuberance. In the presence of gla.ss he is a junior hailstorm. He is a universally recognized authority on stamp flirtation. Actual experience has taught him to discriminate by weight between Huyler’s and prunes. What he will do with hiimself in the future, time alone can reveal. 140 A very innocent little Freshman entered college with us. His name is William McAfle Druckhn.miller. When but a littlle boy he wrote his name •t in full, Druckemniller, but finding the “ Drucken ” too dry he dropped that part of his name and now writes his name D’ Miller. William : ' y ' )orn in the fair town of Columbia and is one of rfairsons. His birthday is November 2, 1879. g raduated from the Columbia High School, rhe entered our Scientific Department. He is very stately, weighs 168 pounds, and i is 5 feet II inches tall. Mr. Miller is athletically inclined and was the captain of our foot ball team until adverse cir- cumstances obliged him to resign. Dur- ing his boyhood he raised pigeons, and their aerial flights caused him to think x)f the flight of the soul to the higher regions, so that fora long time “ Fill ” was s ndecided as to whether he should prepare . medicine or theology, but finally inclined S medicine. In that drama, “The Demon TiieSeft, ’’ so highly appreciated by everybody, Mr. “ Amsbach, the Demon.’’ He is a very intimate ■friend of officials, chiefs of police forces, and fire companies. Some one ha!s said that he is very helpless and cannot even do as much as sew on a button. Among his very many good qualities is a loud, strong voice, which is cultivated and very melodious, thus adding much to the volume of the chapel choir. He is a graceful dancer, skillful manipulator of the deck, and grandilo- quent conver.sationalist. He takes an unusual amount of intere.st in the study of German, and although for him this study is optional he takes ever} hour and neglects other studies for the German. We dare not overlook his disposition. He is a very prominent factor in society, and it could not well be otherwise ; for he has such a way with himself that is very fascinating, and ladies .say the only thing they can do is admire him. Because of his amiable disposition, Willie is mama’s joy and papa’s darling. Fast horses are his hobby and his by-word is ‘ ‘ Greips. ’ ’ E:ce homo ! Samuel Edmund Moyer saw fit to make his entrance into this mundane sphere in 1879 during the month of May. He was born at Catasaiupia, where he now resides. He was educated in the public schools and Muhlenberg Academy. Samuel entered college with the 1 ■- I I V ' ... class of 1901 in the fall of 1897, tfien left college to take charge of a .school of insubordinates. He this school for two consecutive terms, nd, having quelled all disorder, entered the ranks of 1902 in spring of 1899. His history, therefore, .show’s that he is the mo.st senior member of our class. He weighs 145 pounds and is 5 feet 10 inches tall. In that sempiternal drama, “The Demon of the Desert,” Mr. Moyer took a very important part as Hanimed.” “Sam” is not afraid of of any kind as long as it is honest , and in a most reverential frame of he often says: “Blest are the horny toil.” He has spent his vacations work- and foundry, farm and woods. It does his past, and he believes that every college student should value of a dollar before he spends it at college. Of the above Jiamed, farin life is his ideal, but .since he is religiously inclined he will assuine the clerical toga. “Pete,” as he is generally known, may very appro- ])riately be called the punster of the class. He is never in a hurry, but is steady and usually gets there. His convictions are well grounded and he expresses them when any measure at variance with them is proposed. He has a poetical jmoclivity, but as an Irishman once .said : “ He is as much a poet as a sheep is a go-at”. But one wiping of the razor is neces.sary when he shaves. His dress is indicative of a student, for he wears Muhlenberg trousers, a college hat, a foot- ball watch-charm and love-knot cuff-buttons. His chronometer is a remarkable mechanism, for its time corresponds with any regulator at any time. When you see a gentleman answering this characterization, you see our friend “ Sam.” stuck of the iiat ffe “Say, fellers! Wait till I tell you.’’ This is Lawrence Henry Rupp. He first beheld the light of day on the 26th day of September, 1881, at New Tripoli. Later on he moved to„.,!C,9,Sj ®rsburg and then to Allentown. He was ■ educated in - the .scliools of the above-named places and LlTLS; from the Allentown High School in 1897. Rupp is a very ambitions abont-to-be p f er, and read law the year following his from High School. He is active ilmd energetic and ever willing to promote htt- fe -the welfare and prosperity of the college, although it may be under the most adverse circumstances. He is always ready to relate his experiences while . attending High School, and he figured prominently in ever ’ event that tran- Spired. Lawrence is a gifted reciter and linger. He recites such selections as “A ankee in Love’’ by request and with a r ngeance. Sometimes he is characterized by Jtti ity and verbo.sity. He indulges very pro- Agonized smiles, impressing a penson as though attentive li.stener and his .steadfast gaze partakes " ijiparing. As the business manager of the Glee Club he is very successful, aiid the transaction of the affairs of this organization causes him to appear to have more business than a president of seven railroad companies. Although inclining towards the legal profe.ssion, he is a practical theologian and believes in elucidating all chaotic theology by means of practical illustration and example. His supply is inexhamstible. According to our observations we believe that the studying and reciting of Horace has a decidedly soporific effect upon the gentleman. He weighs 148 pounds and is 5 feet 8 G inches tall. No. 7 hats and shoes of equal honor are comfortable decorations for both extremities of his body. He is Reformed an d a Bryanite. He is a v ery active member ot the Junior German Society and for a more extensive characterization we refer you to the German Department. 143 deference Here behold him as he is ! His name is Jacob Franklin Scholl. He was born twenty years ago at Bath, near an old gristmill, massive and whitewashed. His early education was received in the small district school, but he soon made such indescribable progress that he outgrew the old school and schoolmaster, and in order to satiate his son’s nordinate desire for education his father moved Allentown, where Jacob was sent to the public schools aud Muhlenberg Academy. |F|;: His altitude is 5 feet inches and his weight 156 pounds. His head finds com- fort under a No. 7 hat and his feet call for No shoes. His services are engaged by a large department store in this city, and “Jake” has established a reputation as a peanut vender because he sells three quarts of the best-roasted hump-backed, double - jointed California [p eanuts, every one of which contains a prize. isp Auction-engine in the one end and a sewing- Kefeine in the other, for ten cents. He is the junior jiejpMOf the firm Freed Scholl, and shows great ' fife ' tiltier, to the extent that he makes daily inquiries as to " Msdiealth an( |l " effir condition. This gentleman is not as sober and sedate as he looks, but was only in such a sanctimonious mood when his photograph was taken. His amiable disposition has endeared him to all his classmates. Besides, he is characterized by unobtrusiveness and imperturbability. Mr. Scholl is very original and an intensely interesting conversationalist. He has w ' on the esteem and admiration of his classmates by his masterly toasts, which rival those of Mr. Depew. Without his presence banquets would be incomplete, if not a failure, and all entertainments for the satiation of gastronomical desires find him as the guest of honor. In regard to his latest toast we quote the following: “ The latter’s speech was elaborate and was eloquently delivered. ” His favorite expression is, “ As I said before.” December Muhlenberg. 144 theni bV an The genial gentleman whose countenance you now have the extreme pleasure of beholding hails from Lebanon and was initiated into the recondite affairs of 1902 in the falL of Sophomore year. His name is Fkank Mock LThrich. Frank first Jaw the appearance of rosy-fingered Eos, Child Morning, January 16, 1878. Phoebus deigned send a favoring breeze, so that he was born der the most auspicious circumstances. He as graduated from the publi c schools of his natal town and prepared for college privately. During three comsecutive terms he tried to enlighten the rising generation of a neighboring district school, and succe.ss crowned his efforts. Since his arrival at college he has mani- fested great interest in all things that fpromote the advancement of the college and .shown an avowed hatred for the con- Erary. He is a good friend when a friend, " he may call you a ‘ ‘ pusillanimous picayune’ ’ incur his displeasure. As a rule he has his about things and is fearless in expressing inches and his weight 145 pounds. He would -iWhen he laughs at a joke he laughs last, and having gathered all the enjoyment in one effort, he sends it forth in voluminous ho ! hos! His vocabulary is quite prolific, and he makes a special study of synonyms and antonyms. Very frequently he soliloquizes on the insignificance of mortals, and .says : “ Oh, w ' hy should the spirit of mortal be proud?” He combs all the time and yet is never combed. His temperament is highly sen.sitive and the only boss he wants is a dear sweetheart for whom he would do all in his power. His correspondence is very voluminous. He receives letters in white and green, red and blue, brown and yellow, unsealed, sealed, and doubly sealed, heavy and light. Scientific investigation has revealed the fact that while his capabilities are many and varied, the mathematical bump holds first place. He possesses no hatred for the fair sex. His favorite expression is : ‘‘ Oh, to be a Romeo and Juliet, but not a Pyramus and Thisbe ! ” 145 |iiin J0.SEPH I AUBACH Weisley was kept rather close at home and not allowed to co mmunicate with the outer world to any great degree. This period of his history embraces the time from his birth, October 14, 1881, up to within a few years ago.: JHe was educated in the public schools of Cata- sauc|Sa, his natal town, and entered college as a Freshman. He spends his vacations in his §h€r’s store in the confectionery department hhd disposes of the confectionery both externally and internally, and has attained Tthe height of 5 feet 8 inches, weighing 135 pounds. His shoes and hats are made to order and are numberless. If unusual cranial proportions were indica- : tive of acuteness of intellect, we believe this man would work wonders. Joseph hiever smoked and never tasted a drop of intoxicating beverage, a very desirable cord. A four-inch collar on his three-inch is a source of continual torture, and well- _ fe ' minds one of the pillory of colonial days, rs fond of driving, and snow and nice weather find of how nice it would be to take a young lady out, but hlehody se ipes the key to the stable. He has attended dancing-school, but never dhnced Vefy much ; for he hangs around the room and to the uninitiated appears a mere spectator, which he really may be. His voice is an extraordinary product of nature, and he is closely allied to the legendary sirens. His laugh resembles that of the moon when lovers are under a tree, but this precocious youth does not emulate the moon in laughing at the right time. He is one of “ de gang from Cata.sauqua.” In regard to his ability as a disturbing element — well, that speaks for itself. “Joe ’’ says : “ You’re all right, but you can’t eat soap.’’ 146 The features of John Moses Woodring now greet you. He was born twenty j ears ago in Allentown, moved to South Allentown, and subsequently again to Allentown, where he has resided since. He was graduated from the Allentown High School in 1898. He weighs 130 pounds ■ -j - andJIs 5 feet 8.5 inches tall. His shoes and hat together number 13.375. He is verjMuethodical methodistical, and a regular absentee in chapel. His name is Woodring, and he not only fain would ring but often does ring somebody’s doorbell. His life is interwoven with some other life. Whose? do you ask? We would not for a moment think of telling you. It will be all right if you can guess it. John gives evidence of a love of music in a two-fold manner. He sings himself d has a very warm spot for .singers. This lOt is situated in the central organ of the ular .system of animals. It is a hollow |ir structure that propels the blood b} ' at tontractions and dilatations. He sings in a febone Jiass of a frog. It is very base at times. Mr. lit of the Scientific Department and medicine will be his pro- His chief delight is to wander through fields and meadows, over mountains and hills. His great ambition is to find some new and undis- covered order of life, and he thinks that by way of accident he may find the missing link. We wish him a superabundance of .success, and trust that he may thereby perpetuate his name. To confess the truth, we know little of this gentle- man. His life is somewhat .secluded. In short, he is quiet and unassuming, enjoys a good joke and a hearty laugh. He is a nice sort of a chap, and, as some one has expressed it, “a darn good fellow.” 147 Last of all but not least let us introduce to you Clinton Frederick Zerwhck, of Bethlehem. During the season of the vernal equinox, when the storms raged, rains desceiidedLand days seemed dark and dreary, he appeared in Bethlehem in i88i. A very precocious youth, he was graduated from the Bethlehem High School in 1897 was the youngest member of the class. Moravian p ollege claimed him for one year. He weighs 139.9 pounds and is 5.75 feet tall. He sings with the famous Bach Choir and is a music fiend in general. You may desire to know what he sings ; it is a fog-horn I bass. He frequently plays the organ for an aged relative of his, and he has learned by so doing that music hath its charms and recompense. He intends to become a musician, but may become a clergyman or something else. It is difficult To tell what it will be. His weather-beaten class hat adorns the walls of class-rooms. He iites in a subdued undertone, in a manner best fessed by saying that he recites under his breath. We do so small or his mouth so big, but he often gets his foot in it his mouth. His mind is quick and active, and he is a very clever sort of a student. He possesses a fair knowledge of all the latest slang. A firm Lutheran, he is conversant with all church history, church music and everything that pertains to the church. He spends his leisure time on the thoroughfares of Allentown. Inactivity is unknown to him. He delights in calling down people whose views are at variance with his, and he expresses his ideas fearlessly and gratuitously. His general knowledge and conversational powers make him an agreeable companion. Finally, Mr. Zerweck is a young man whom we need every hour, and whom we sorely miss when absent. 14S 149 Literary Department IT is not enough to aim, you must hit,” is as true when applied to the seeker 1 after success in composition and compilation as when said of the hunter on the trail.

F. A. MUHLENBERG, D.D , LED, Rev. F. A. Muhlenberg:. D eath, on March 21, 1901, removed from the roll of ministers of the Lutheran Church the name of the distinguished scholar, prominent educator, and eminent clergyman, Dr. F. A. Muhlenberg, D.D., LL.D., great-grandson of Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, best known to us as the first president of our institution. He was at the time of his death the oldest clerical member of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, by which bod} " he was beloved and honored. He is described to us as conscientious, careful in instruction, quiet and unassuming in manner, yet ever commanding respect. We take from The Lutheran the following brief account of his life : “ He was born at Lancaster, Pa., August 25, 1818. His grandfather was the Rev. Henry Ernst Muhlenberg and his father Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, an eminent physician. His mother was Eliza, granddaughter of the Rev. J. Helfrich Schaum. In 1833, after a preparatory training at the Lancaster County Academy, he entered the Sophomore Class at Gettysburg College, being only fifteen years of age. He graduated in Jefferson College, Canonsburg, Pa. , in 1836. He spent a year at Princeton Theological Seminary and opened a private school at Lancaster in 1838, which was merged into Franklin College, where he 152 was elected as professor in 1839. In 1850 he became the Franklin Professor of Ancient Languages in Pennsylvania College, and soon distinguished himself as one of the foremost Greek scholars in the country. In 1867 he was called as first president of Muhlenberg College, which responsible and difficult position he honorably filled till 1876, when he accepted the Greek professor.ship in the University of Pennsylvania. This chair he resigned in 1888 and remained inactive in educational work until urged a .second time to a.ssume a position as professor in Thiel College in 1891, where he labored two years. He then retired permanent!} ' . “ During the recent years of his retirement he resided at Reading, Pa., and was connected with Trinity Lutheran Church, of which ' his uncle had been pastor for many years, and in which his nearest relatives were influential members.” All who knew him were benefited ‘‘by his ripe Chri.stian e.xperience, his thorough .scholarship, his faithful attendance upon the means of grace, his active promotion of the welfare of the Church, and his never-failing kindness of heart and old-time courtesy.” To him Muhlenberg College owes more than it can repay. During the early and difficult years of the founding of the college it was his firm hand that steered the new institution through the dangers that threatened it, and started it onward in its ever-widening field of influence. He has entered into re.st; he is gone to his reward. After eighty-two years of this earth’s trials he is no more, but his memory will ever be fresh in the minds of all who love goodne.ss and admire worth. Resolutions of the Faculty of Muhlenberg College. Whereas, It has jileased our Meaveiilv Father to call unto Himself His venerable and faithful servant, Rev. h ' rederick Angns ' .us Mnhleidrerg, D.D , Lb.D ., Resolved, That we, the Faculty of Muhlenberg College, do hereby record our higli ajipre- ciatiou of the eminent and unselfish services which the departed rendered to the Church and the State. The life and the labors of Dr. Muhlenberg as preacher, professor, and first president of Muhlenberg College, have exerted a power for good that Omniscience alone can fully estimate ; but its fruits are seen in the success of the institution whose destiny was first entrusted to his care, in the character and the achievements of the thou.sands of students who have .sat at his feet, and above all in the reverence and the affection in which he was held by all who came within the influence of h s genial and benignant pensonalit} ' . As former students or as colleagues of Dr. Muhlenberg, we have lost a per.soual friend, whose modest bearing, ripe scholarship, Christian counsel and w’arm heart have made life more sw’eet and gracious for us. Resolved, That as a mark of our sorrow ' and esteem the ]rortrait of the deceased, in the College chai el, be draped in mourning for a period of thirty days ; that recitations be suspended on the day of the burial ; and that a committee of the Facult}’ attend the funeral. Resolved, That the.se re.solutions he spread on the minutes of the Faculty, a copy be sen ' to the family, and the same be published in The Lutheran and The Muhlenberg. 153 Rev. Benjamin Sad tier, D.D I T is not often tliat a college is called upon to mourn the loss of two of its presi- dents within the short space of about a month. Yet by the death, on April 28 at Atlantic City, of Rev. Dr. Benjamin Sadtler, Muhlenberg College, not yet reconciled to the loss of its first president, is compelled to bow to the decision of the all-wise Providence which has deprived her of her second honored president. Dr. Sadtler was descended from an old German family and was born in Balti- more on Christmas Day, 1823. He graduated at Gettysburg in 1842 and was licemsed to preach in Maryland in 1844. In 1845 he had charge of the Pinegrove parish. In 1849 he removed to Shippensburg, and after having charge of a church at Middletown he succeeded Dr. C. P ' . Shaeffer as pastor of St. John ' s at Easton. He re.signed this charge in 1862 to become principal of the Lutherville Female Seminary. After fourteeii successful years he was called to the presidency of Muhlenberg College in 1876 upon the resignation of Dr. Muhlenberg. His admin- istration of the affairs of this institution was characterized by great activity and discretion. He resigned in 1886 and removed to Baltimore, where he has since lived in retirement, though constantly engaged with the pen contributing to the church papers. It is a strange coincidence which has caused the faculty to pass substantially the same re.solutions of respect within five weeks, and which has caused the removal of the drapery from our chapel portrait of Dr. Muhlenberg to that of Dr. Sadtler. The draping of these portraits in such close succession will serve to remind us of the uncertainty of life and at the same time, while living, make us strive to live in such a manner that when our summons comes it may be said of us, as it may truly be said of Dr. Sadtler ; “ He was an eminent scholar and a true Christian gentleman.” 154 The Full Development of the Man. K. AUG. Miur,p;R, rc .so,, phiuadkupui.a., pa. A fter the mighty work of creation in Nature had been completed, we are told, “and the Lord God formed man of the dirt of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.” The narrative is plain and simple but wonderfully significant. It was the breath of the Triune God imparting to the personality which He had created a triune nature, if we may so express it. The result was Man, having a three-fold nature in one, the physical, the mental, the spiritual. The dust of the earth was responsible for the first of the.se, the Divine breath gave birth to the last, the touch of Omniscience and the Will of Deity to fashion this creature after His own image gave to him his mental endowment. Man is thus a trinity in his formation and nature. His development, therefore, means his growth and enlargement along the line of each and all of these natures. Every scheme of perfect education must have in contemplation this three-fold development. To slight any or either makes of him a cripple. The muscular giant who is hailed the victor in the boxing bout may nevertheless be the sorriest cripple contemplated in his complete man- hood by reason of his mental deficiency and spiritual stuntedness. So akso he who utterly disregards all law and exercise for his development physically, although a mental giant, is nevertheless crippled for the conflict to which he as a man is called. The ascetic of the middle ages, to whom spiritual exercise and religious activity alone was meat and drink, and who starved his body and fettered his mind, fulfilled as little his noble destinj ' as those others to whom we have referred. The stunting of the one nature is only the more fearfully evident in each case when contrasted with the abnormal development of the other. No, as man has these three natures, so must his full manhood be attained along the line of all. There can be no slight to either. It becomes therefore an important inquiry as to whether or not our educational systems and institutions of learning are doing this. Are nie?i being made as the result of the training and discipline to which the student is subjected ? To what extent is the noble destiny fur which he was created being attained as the result of his schooling? There can be no doubt that our schools and colleges have preeminently in contemplation the dev elopment of the student’s mind. The reformation of the sixteenth century was not alone a religious upheaval, but learning and literature, which were then for but the few, and muzzled by ecclesiastical decree and regula- 155 tion, became, through that mighty movement, as the gushing forth of the water from the rock, for the satisfying of the many. From that free, n.itrammeled stream the many drank and nations were saved. From that time until the present the mental development of man has been the concern not only of the individual, but of the nations. Shall we be accused of here.sy if we confess that sometimes we have wondered if we have not grown just a little beside ourselves on the subject of mind culture ? A certain noted one of old was told that too much learning had made him mad. While not true in his case, may it not be true of some of us to-day ? The remark was recently made by a prominent lecturer that the Chinese, as a nation, are probably the most educated people in the world. Note in that remark the adjective, most not best. To them the education of the mind with its endless memorizings means social distinction and political prefer- ment beyond that accorded by other nations. At their examinations, conducted year after year, students return until they grow old and decrepit, inspired by the hope of successfully completing the tests. But alas, while their minds become stored beyond all others in quantity, its quality is of such inferior kind that they cannot keep up with the onward march of civilization, but must ever keep in the rear. So we question whether much of the so-called learning of the day really educates, and whether our systems of education are calculated to develop that rnind-nature of man as much as is expected. Do our university courses, our col- lege curriculums, our .school systems, with all their advanced modes and expensive apparatus, educate the mind, as well, or as completeljq as those poorer and more humble schools and systems of former years? It is not, after all, how much we know, but what we know and how well we know it. An aged man of letters declared in the long ago, “ This one thing I do ” In the multitude of things which one feels himself called upon to do, and our educational systems appear to strive to prepare us to do, there is no oneihmg which we do do. Is it not theone-thing doers that are the winners in the race ? But in spite of criticism and question, the claim certainly cannot be made that every opportunity is not given for the development of man on the mental side. But what of his physical nature, this dust part of him ? If this be a part of the man, then certainly it must be cared for and exerci.sed for its development. Is this being done in our colleges and schools? One cannot well repress a smile. B ' ifty years ago, with reason and doubt, the question might have been honestly asked. But what of to-day? Tiie only fear is that the pendulum, as usual, has swung to the other extreme. This might well be termed the age of physical culture. It’s in the air we breathe, the literature that we read, and trembles upon the sound waves that proceed from class-room and campus. The popular novels of the day are filled with it. The love and chivalry of by-gone years have given place to feats of physical endurance and heroes stamped with virility. The news- paper, that pul.se of popular feeling and desire, that does not devote a page or two 156 of its daily issue to sports and athletics is not in it. We do not wish to be under- stood as criticising all this, for the man must be prepared physically, as well as mentally, for the conflict of life. ’Tis right and proper that our institutions t-f learning should devote time and attention and give encouragement to this im- portant branch of man’s education, but where should the line be drawn ? Some years ago, when the foot ball team of a prominent institution of learning, which for years had met defeat on the gridiron at the hands of the team of another col- lege, was finally siicce.ssful in overcoming her enemy, the remark was freely made that the victory gave a prestige to the former institution which she had not before enjoyed, and would be of financial benefit to her. This may not have been so, and the a.s.sertion may have been unwarranted, but is it not indicative of the im- portance which is paid and given to athletics in the colleges of to-day, as well as the influence which they exert in the career of our educational institutions? Whether this influence and position is out of proportion to their merit and nece.ssity, we do not feel qualified to answer. Certain it is, however, that the man who has a well-developed body plus a trained and well-stored mind, is far better able to battle in the world than he who has only the latter qualification. In the hurly-burly of life, where everything is on the tension, as it is to-day, the frail body must soon succumb under the nervous strain. But man, as we have found, is endowed not alone with a mind and body, but he has also a soul or spirit part. Is there need of its development? And if so, to what extent are our sy.stems of education doing this? Alas ! Alas ! We fear that in this respect there is a woful lack, for while our modern college and school are calculated to develop the student mentally and physically, how little, if an ' , attention is paid to the cultivation of tho.se spiritual forces and powers with which he is endowed. Nor do we in this lament have reference only to what might be termed the religious side of his spiritual nature. Except in those institutions which are under the care of and nurtured by church organizations, there is practically no religious teaching. On the contrary, both in instruction given, and by innuendo and deduction, as well as by profe.s.sorial example, much is done to undermine the faith and question the hope of the .student. But on the moral rather than the religious side, what is being done to develop tho.se higher aspira- tions and nobler qualities of the man, those better attributes which came from the breath of Divinity ? Some time since, a man of observation and thought, talking wdth the writer concerning this very matter, remarked that in his opinion the man to be at the head of an institution of learning .should not necessarily be the most erudite, nor possess the highest order of executive ability, but that one, who, by his wisdom and force of character, will so influence and impress those under him, that the very best elements of the man may be developed. Time was when a college presidency was synonymous with erudition. This qualification has been super- 157 seeled in lar e part by the ability to finance the institution and command the influence of wealthy supporters. But is it not the case, that wlrile both of these qualifications are important, the great sine qua non should be the power to develop the full manhood of the student who comes seeking for guidance and knowledge ? Hone.sty, integrity, probity, these and other moral traits must be cultivated and encouraged to a full development. All meanness and littleness must be eradicated, and the spirit of the man, free and untrammeled by a puny growth, must ri.se aljove the clouds and vapors of the immorality of the world and bathe in the clear sunshine of heaven. The world is waiting with a longing that is never satisfied for these men who are thus fully developed. Those who have a mind filled with knowledge; a body, the seat of health and strength ; and a spirit that is awaj and above the so-called morality of the world, are equipped fully and completely for life’s battles. To them the victor’s palm is never withheld. The need of their service in and to the world is great and pressing. In every department of activity and sphere of use- fulness they are wanted and anxioush ' awaited. The door of succe.ss is never closed against them, no matter in what walk of life it is sought. God knows how badly they are needed in our halls of legislation. Free government is tottering upon her pedestal of liberty and equality, shaken by the rude and contaminating touch of the political demagogue and brazen charlatan. The cry goes up from fair Columbia that God may give her men ; men of courage who know the right and dare to do it in spite of criticism and sneer ; men who cannot be bought ; men of brain ; men of wisdom and judgment ; men whose minds have drunk deep from the wells of knowledge and thus can see and pohit the way ; men, every inch of them in physical stature, who have the hardihood and endurance to enable them to fight successfully against the powers of evil that dominate the world. These are badly, badly needed, not alone to guide the great ship of State, but in every walk of life and sphere of usefulness ; f ull-rounded men, well-balanced men, with mind and soul and body fully dev ' eloped. For these the world awaits in hungry expectation, nor will she withhold from them her choice and richest gilts. Opportunity opens wide her gates to them, fortune beckons them, while success stands smiling, ready to crown them with her favor. 158 TO A SENIOR OUR short years have come and gone, — 1 What have you done, what left undone ? Have you dallied by the way And made of life, so real, hut jrla}- ? Despised your opportunities Which to you were freely given ? h ' illed your life with uonentities And from your aim have been driven ? If these things are said to be true, What sad curse is awaiting you ? For all the wiile world knows your views And ' Ou cannot afford to lose. What ! Lose ? A college graduate. By his will so unfortunate As to garner the bitter harvest. All for the want of being earnest ? Yes, thou Senior, most dignified. Most lofty in thine ambition. All your deeds have onh’ verified Before men j’our true and sad condition. ' I ' urn thou, then, ere it be too late. Those who lazily hesitate Deserve to lose the cherished prize. E’en though it floats before their eyes. Straightway pursue 3 ' our purposed end And cease not your labor, but toil On and upward, till He shall send To call thee from thy “ mortal coil.” 159 “Consider the End.” W HETHER we view them in Greek, as Tt ' or ; in Latin, as “ Respice ad Einein ; ” in German, as “ Bedenke das Ende ; ” whether we hear them in French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, in any language, the words which in English read “ Consider the End ” form in all an excellent motto, and one the worth of which difference in language and idiom does not hide. Some decry the use of mottoes, but in that very cry make plain that they, too, have a motto, though it be a poor one ; for a motto is a “ short, suggestive expres- sion of a guiding principle.” Woe to the man who, making sport of all mottoes, yet has as his own ” Indifference.” ’Tis true that even good mottoes must be followed with moderation and tem- perance. Probably the only exception is the following, quoted by Addison : “Serve God and be cheerful.” ‘ ‘ Consider the End” as a motto looks to and past Addison’s quotation — to serving God and cheerfulness as a blessed means — to eternity in heaven as a blissful end. Viewed only from a human standpoint, ‘‘ Consider the End ” is still a good maxim, depending, however, largely upon what we consider and how we con- sider it. The man who makes money the end of life and constantly looks to that end to the exclusion of all that serves not that purpose ; the man who constantly con- siders about how ' much cash he has in the end of the old stocking under the second board in the floor, — that man certainly is following out the motto, ” Consider the lind,” but he follows it not rightly. He walks backw ' ard, .seeing the true “end” in the distance, but lost, engrossed in the false “end,” ‘‘I have added another hundred to the pile — Sh ! Somebody might hear — under the second board,” nearer at hand. Is the end selfish or unselfish? that is the question. Coleridge says : ” When every man is his own end all things will come to a bad end.” An end we must have ever in view, and consideration is always in order. If there is any man who should have an end and object in life and who should learn consideration in attainment, it is the young college man. Hence for a class of such men the motto which is our subject is eminentU ' proper, and in view of this fitness it has been chosen by the Cla.ss of 1902. In many cases the end of our w ' ork is too far off to enable us to see it. We begin a day ' s labor with a certain intention, yet how many the accidents that may cause us to deviate from our course ! Accidents? Yes, we will call them so. To the man who resolutely sets about getting upon the ol d track the deviation is 160 a slight delay. To the man who, once off the track, forgets his end and sees pleasure in the deviation, the defection is an absolute injury. To the man who, having lost his way, sits down in despair, sitting is death, for among the Alpine snows of dejection life is only to him who .struggles. Shakespeare puts into the mouth of one of his characters : “ Oh, that a man might know The end of this day’s business ere it come !” No ; not .so. If there is pleasure and success at the end of the daj we cannot afford to risk engendering pride and impatience ; if there is sorrow and woe, let us not anticipate it and destroy what measure of happiness we have at the beginning. Let a man but consider the end ; let him examine the .signboards of success put up by others ; let him keep on the right track, then he need not wish to know the end of the day before it begins, for he will have a feeling of security and can rest in the assurance of Eccl. 7:8: “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof.” We have often heard it said that the object of a college course is to make a man think. “ Consider the End” strives to keep this before our minds, to make us fix our attention, view carefully, ponder, study, meditate, — not at random, but toward a proper end. Have you ceased to attend divine worship ? Have you neglected a branch of the course ? Have you high aims and noble aspirations or none? In each and every case “ Consider the End.” 161 CARMEN POLYQLOTTICUM.

H r who the ages holds within the hollow of his hand, Hath turned the scroll of time one notch, and gi ' en to this fair land Another Century. No thunder-crash its advent roared, no strains rang forth its birth. The sun and moon no signs made known, nor herald came to earth. So silently it came. And with the advent of the new, the old was thrust aside. To perish with the former ones, from ns fore’er to glide Into eternity. Now in the resting-place of time, unseen to human eye. Within the grave, but newly made, the Nineteenth, too, must lie. And go to come no more. Signs of Progress. T he American Union stands forth to-day as the most progressive member of a progressive world. Already she leads the armies of renown in many enterprises and is rapidly forging toward the van in all others. In no field of activity is her progress more manifest than in the matter of education. Her colleges and univer.sities are making a stir in the world. Should not every college of the land feel proud of that fact and use its endeavors towards making that stir, instead of a ripple, a mighty wave of influence? What is the college worth that does not strive to be in the front ranks? A great part of the world is yet uneducated. Forward ! Advance college and education ' s great aim may be accomplished with you in the van ; stand still, and ere many years have passed the leaders will see you with 3’our artillery of influence stuck in the slough of your own lethargy and want of progress. Let a college advance in all respects. True, the real glory and charm of a thing lies more in its inward nature than in the grandeur and quality of its sur- roundings, yet as in a man the source of life is within, hut it is by his outward movements that that life is manifested, so a progressive college, excellent in its course of instruction, shows its life by many outward activities. Endeavors to .secure adequate buildings and spacious grounds that education may bloom in comfort and expand under auspicious circum.stances ; the introduc- tion of and participation in athletic sports that the future leaders among communi- ties of men may have nerves that never relax, eyes which never blanch, and spirits that never fail, — these are among the outward activities in which the successful and progressive college engages. They are the indicators to the world that things are moving. Apply the test to Muhlenberg. Does progress reside within her walls? Yea, we are glad to write that progress not only resides in Muhlenberg, but is crying from her roof so loudly that her voice clamoring for new buildings is heard and answered in Reading and upon the banks of the Lehigh. We note with pride that progress in the shape of athletics has sprung into life during the past year. The Board of Trustees surely is endeavoring to make this a well-rounded college. A few years will see Muhlenberg in new, beautiful, and adequate quarters ; yet a short time and her sturdy .sons will bring her honor upon many an athletic field. Let every student and well-wisher do what he can to further these camses. If you can do much, we rejoice ; if little, do what you can. They are the signs of progress. 164 THE THREE GRACES A s after rain the mists descend And eartli and sky in oneness blend - But through the dusky dimness darts, As through a curtain when it parts. The sun ' s bright ray of light serene, Illuming all the varied scene — So from the clouds of classic lore .Still hov’ring o’er the Grecian shore. Or rising from the Roman plain. There streams across the Western Main. A tale, whose beauty, truth, and art Improve the mortal mind and luart. From Zeus, the King of gods and men. Whose Kingdom ends bej ' ond our ken, And heauti ous n ymjjh from depths of sea By poets styled Eurynonie, Descended were in royal line The maids who mortal life refine. The Graces three they have been named. For virtue, wit, and beauty famed. Oft has their loveliness been sung . nd oft their praise from minstrel tongue Has floated in sweet harmony Through hall of gladsome gaiety. Where purest pleasures did abound. Where joys of life in full were found. Where goodness ruhd and friendship reigneil, The.se .sisters sweetest sway maintained. Oft to the temple for Thalia brought Were richest offerings rarely wrought. And altars many to Aglaia reared The pious prince and peasant cheered. As with libations they invoke Fluphrosyne, the curling smoke Of incense .sending odors sweet Ascends the suppliant ' s sight to greet. F ' riends of the Muses, they to art Refinement and new life impart ; In bard fresh fancies they infuse And help blind Homer woo his IMuse ; In painting, sculpture, music grand. They genius give with bounteous hand. Such were the Grecian Graces three In childhood of humanity. When wealth of mind, not worth of soul, 165 O’er classic culture held control. .■ s roses from the bud unfold, So what is new springs from the old ; .- nd oft the good the better brings, . s bird first chirps, then sweetly sings. Thus is it with these maidens dear Who brought to ancients merry cheer ; Their part now played, their course is run. Though well or ill, their deeds are done. Life’s joys were .sadness at their best. If not bv love and fri- nrlship blest ; But no such sorrow saddens me, h ' or happily the Fates decree That I should know three maidens fair With whom no Graces Greek compare In wisdom, loveliness, and worth . nd all that blesses man on earth. One for her goodness I esteem ; The other Beauty ' s daughter deem ; The thirrl — hut better not betray Emotions in too blunt a w ' ay — .• sentence shall her charms define. I’ve chosen her “ My Valentine.” THE COLLEGE LETTER BOX. T HERE’S a little brown box by the old front door, That many an int ' restiiifj story has held ; At ’level! and two, the curator they bore, To see if the heart or the purse will be swelled ; How eager each man as the letters he scans. How smiling a face, e’en a postal card brings ; When his name’s on a letter, past all he fans. How joyful he pranc s, how gleeful he sings. Sometimes there’s a paper ' bout folks ' round your home. That tells of their sickness, their joys, and their health ; Again there’s a pamphlet, new hist’ry of Rome, That wants to intrigue yon, and rob you by stealth. But dearest of all is a word from your mother. Which tell j ' on of father, of John, and of Grace ; And coyishly adds, “ Sal’s not going with ’nother. She still loves yon, Jim, she ' s reserving yonr place.” 167 A TWILIGHT EPISODE T WAS in a field of new-mown hay Where men had worked from break of day. The West had swallowed the radiant sun ; The moon her glow had just begun. As Sol’s last pencil with sparkling shimmer Touched a bashful star’s growing glimmer, A man into the field jumped from the fence Lost to all feelings of time and sense. With love of nature well developed, This man had .seen the sun enveloped In mist and darkness, and then go To light the other lands below. Through the haycocks at the other end Behold ! a goat his way did wend. From an unused quarry returning — For him a place of greatest yearning. He. like the man, had seen Sol set,— However with feelings of deep regret — For it had spoiled his joyful plan Of eating another tomato can. In thoughts of nature’s beauty enrapt The man her glories before him mappetl. With feelings hard — best unexpressed — The goat went onward quite distressed. In mid-field, by a natural law. They met — to each a cause of awe — But awe gave way to anger then, A cause of woes to goats and men. The goat began angrily to say : Man, get you gone out of my way!” He answered, “ Pestiferous goat, Get out the way! } ' ou will, I won ' t.” The man then suddenlj ' dropped liis sand. And setting sails, started for land. The goat as suddenly dropped his head And rapidl}’ in Ais steps did tread. Blit, " the man said, ” I ' ll reach the fence,” But you won’t,” said the goat, with sense. The moon’s smile lighted the haycock juts. As all was ended in a collision of butts.

REV. H. A. WEELKR, ORWIGSBURG, PA. A rt, science, philosophy, literature, are nothing unless they spring out of and in turn affect the spiritual fountain of human happiness. The world to-day stands overwhelmed with materializing agencies — the dead weights of selfishness and passion — by which the exalted and ennobling aims of life are shorn of the wings of progress, and the “ Gospel of Peace and Good-will ” is superseded in much of present-day education by the law of .self-aggrandizement. The fruits of our lives bear to the fact of our existence much the .same rela- tion that a picture bears to the canvas upon which it is painted. Individuals are very closely identical in external, natural qualities, — not only in sen.se and feeling, but also in that congeries of emotions which is called the heart. Any differences in character in individuals is owing to the difference of the spirit permitted to govern the heart. If this statement seems ab.struse, select in your thought that person who of all others is, in his character, the mo.st abhorrent to society, and try to imagine that person so changed as to be virtually such another as that per.son who seems of all others the most admirable. Difficult as the task is, .seem- ingly beyond our scope, yet it remains true that in bodily nature the two are essentially alike. It is the spirit dominant in each that makes the difference. The change we can scarcely imagine would be realized in fact were the spirit completely changed. Education is a factor to acconipli.sh this change. The state of society in the whole earth as to happiness or mi.sery results from the presence or absence, in various degrees, of the right spirit in families, states, and nations ; .so that not only our individual character, but our relations in our homes, our business, our neighborhood, and wherever personal relations extend, — and not only ours, but tho.se of all men everywhere, — are determined and controlled by the operation of the spirit which we have cultivated — educated — in ourselves and in them. Into a w ' orld where arts, sciences, philosophy, and literature have largely been made a foundation for social magic and mantic comes the Gospel with an axe that strikes at the root of the tree : “ Ye must be l)orn again, ” — -“A renewed in you.” In an aggregate sen.se, Baliylon, Thebes, Rome, and Spain, in their rise and fall, are guide-posts along the path of history .so eloquent that a fool cannot miss the test, though a knave may. Perversion of the true functions of education from the exaltation of the race as such to the exaltation of selfish self has in the past and will in future engender unhealthy appetites and passions that are an absolute menace to happiness, — a false education. Selfishne.ss — a strain that comes into our nature all the way down from the historical fall of Adam — is a luxury of woe. That selfishness which enhances itself by attainments in the knowledge of arts and sciences (false education) is an engine of destruction. This may be exampled by a survey of men’s indulgence in what have come to be accounted the two great desiderata of human happiness, — wealth and pleasure, — for the attainment of which especiallj young men and women preparing for life are ready to make the per.sonal sacrifices of time and talent which are required for attainment of the “seal of vigor and virility.’’ Does the man of wealth realize that all waste is wickedness, all ostentation is disgrace, and all luxury, unredeemed Iry uses that are organic, functional, instru- mental, or serviceable to the great and glorious purposes of Almighty God for the welfare and blessedness of mankind, is criminal? Does he realize how much of human life is stored up in what he eats, wears, spends, or uses? Another has ably .said : “ Food and raiment, fire and light, shelter and rest, are bought for us by the exposure of the lone shepherd on the mountain side, the weary weaver at her loom, the weather-beaten sailor before the mast, the engineer driving his train in the face of the .storm, the miner delving in the bowels of the earth, the woodsman in the depths of the forest, the fisherman off the foggy bank, the ploughman in his monotonoirs furrow, the cook drudging in the kitchen, the w ' asherwonian at her tub, and the countless army of artisans, teamsters, and common laborers wdio form the broad, firm foundation on which our civilization rests.’’ Whatever, therefore, a man wastes is .simply so much human toil and sacrifice rendered null and void. The self-lauding ostentation, so common to all stations, is simply a display to the world of how much of the vitality of other men and women one can unscrupulously burn up to keep his important (?) self going. What is such men’s real spirit ? To precisely what do they amount in the world ? To eat the bread that others have toiled to plant, reap, transport, and cook and serve ; to wear the silks or woolens that others have spun, woven, cut, and sewed ; to lie down on a couch that other hands have spread under a roof that other arms have raised, is not a sin per se ; but, to consume these things as flames consume a house, with no sense of gratitude or fellowship toward the toiling men and women who bring them ; no .strenuous effort to give back to them something as precious to their happiness as what they gave us is to ours, that is meanness, selfishness, sin, and shame. All education that has this condition of heart to show as its result is degradation and not blessing. After all, in regard to wealth the true te,st is whether, with the little or much we may have, we have brought our- selves and our possessions into an organic and functional subordination to our own passions only, or whether to the will that makes for God’s glory, for human happiness, and social virtue. Another test is the use of pleasure. The ideal of human nature is fruition and not suppression. Beecher once said: “ My conception of religion is to let every faculty effulge, touched with celestial fire.” Whatever ministers to the exaltation of the mind or body, whatever stirs the blood or quickens the nerves, is a good thing to be desired. Pleasure is no sickly counterfeit that lights up the countenances of emaciated hermits, but a non-ascetic intercourse, such as is exem- plified to perfection in the Son of man, who came eating, drinking, and rejoicing, shedding joy and gladness wherever He went, — true, real, human, living happiness. But does the .self-centered devotee of pleasure realize that when he irses a game of cards to undermine the foundations of honesty in a fellow- man, when he uses a game of billiards to div ert the wages of a bread-winner from the support of his family into the till of the gambler or .saloon-ghoul, that such pleasure is black with the odium of hell and the degradation and mi.sery of humanity? Against opera or drama, for example, no lover of his fellow-man will speak a word. But does the plea.sure-seeker, for some spectacular embellishment of dramatic art, ask a woman to lay aside her mode.sty, — her robe and crown of womanhood, — then is he purchasing pleasure with the price of ‘‘ the red blood of a human heart and the stained whiteness of a sister’s soul.” Can a man take pleasure in the banishment of a daughter from a virtuous home, in the infamy of one who might have been a pure sister in a happy home, in the degradation of one who ought to be a wife, happy in the joys of mother- hood ? Ah ! it is to be feared that our social .standards of pleasure are still bar- barous, and all education in the arts, sciences, philosophies, and literature has left the moral faculties undeveloped on the .self-.same level with those of ancient Babylon ; the warnings of history have been suppre.ssed under the weight of purely .selfish puniness, and our moral affinities have scarcely ri.sen over those who delighted in .seeing gladiators die, — not above the cold, hard, callous cruelty which finds “a beastly satisfaction in drinking human blood.” True education, on the other hand, considering these things from every light, counting co.st and comsequences, accounts that alone to be pleasure which is at the same time a source of happiness and well-being to all who are affected by it. All other pleasure is an abomination, stamping its devotee with the brand of Cain, despite every attainment of arts and .sciences which he may boast. The Holy Scriptures .say many interesting things about the antecedents of a ‘‘ right spirit, " and the grief of true education over spiritual declension and consequent ruin has been .so poignantly felt that the names of many writers have become synonyms for lamentation. The same gospel is still laying the same axe to the root of the tree, and the smaller college of our day, with its advantages of close personal contact between the truly educated and the education-seeker, is the fulcrum upon which rests the lever of knowledge and learning at the pressure end of which bears the wisdom of a divinely illumined common sense. 172 ONWARD AND UPWARD.

The amount of reckle.ss, hap-hazard neglect of work is to most not as amazing as it should he. Far from being amazed, many, idlers themselv ' es, look upon idlene.ss with approbation and consider the plodders along the ways of life as (in a phrase of their own) “a little bit off.” Sad to say, such persons exist, — sadder yet, we have .some in our colleges. We do not, however, wish to consider the college man who never attempts to study, for he is an idler pure and simple ( whose species is happily not very common ) and is entirely beneath our notice. But there is a class of men whom we would call student idlers, — a class which, borrowing the expression of a certain professor, exists ‘‘ not so many miles from here.” ” What ! ” you say, ” are there ‘ student idlers ’ ? ” “I thought ‘ studere ’ meant ‘ to .study ’ and hence ‘ .student idlers ’ is a rather contradictory expression.” Certainly it is, and therein is the point Did you ever see a student .study? If you did not you should see many of them during that operation — ' tis a funny sight. Let us open the door just a little and peep in. The student is getting out his books preparatory to beginning work for the next day’s recitations. He sighs and saN ' s ; ” Hard day to-morrow ; wish I were through ! ” After seating himself he opens a book in mathematics, .slowly gets out his tablet and — concludes that the point of his pencil is too blunt. He blackens his fingers. After washing them he resumes. Work holds him about the space of a minute and then he decides that that problem is too difficult, .so he tries the next, but does not proceed far before he notices a card upon the table. He picks it up and turns down its edges, places it before him and then — ‘‘ Say, chum, I bet 3 011 I can blow that card over in le.ss time than it will take you.” ” Chum ” accepts the challenge. A ten-minute bout ensues, mo.stl3 wind, and then — he takes up Greek. ‘‘Say, chum, is the Greek hard?” Getting an affirmative reply, he counts the lines. Finding them to number sixt} ' and that there are many strange words, too, he sighs again and .says ; “WTll, here goes.” It “goes” for five minutes, then — he decides that he is hungry. He then — enough, that man is a student-idler. It is mainly for his benefit that this article is written. Whether we neglect an appointed task entirely or pass over it in a slip-shod, student-idler fashion, the result is much the same. WHiat we accompli.sh in any 175 single day is a sum of the things accomplished in single minutes and hours. Close attention upon one thing and concentration of effort upon that alone brings success. Every day should .see its work done with painstaking carefulness and fidelity. No recitation should be slighted or prepared in a slovenly wa} , and especially no duty should be postponed. It is not so much because certain students do not study that they do not get along, but because they do not study rightly. More time is not needed, but a better method is required. A .student is said on one occasion to have slighted a single lesson. On examination day that particular part was assigned to him and he failed. Why ? Not because he had not spent enough time upon the lesson, but becau.se he had not concentrated his thoughts upon it and hence his idea of it was hazy. The period that a man spends at college is wonderful in its opportunities. It is a time for storing and training his mind, the time for the forming of habits, the time for the choosing of a calling, the time for the shaping of character. Slip- shod, student-idler methods of study are not the ways by which character is best shaped, but the danger is that a careless habit once formed will remain and creep into the work of after life. Give concentration a trial and observe whether better work will not result with enough time left afterward for ammsement, if it be only to blow cardboards. Between mingled work and play there is no chemical affinity, but the two do make a bad mixture. Follow the old maxim — “ Work while you work and play while you play,” then when night arrives you need not retire with conscience impelling you to say: “ Who’s seen my day ? ’Tis tjone away. Nor left a trace In any place. If I could only find Its foot-fall in some mind. Some spirit-waters stirred By wand of deed or word, I should not stand at shadowy eve And for my day so grieve and grieve.” {From ■ ' Rest.

It was no fault of the class, as a whole, that one of its number, like the cracked cylinder of an old stove, dropped a spark of confidence, which resulted in the fierce fire of publicity. In vain was the date of departure fixed one day earlier at a subsequent class meeting, for the same cracked cylinder continued its dropping process. On the evening of January 23, while the Sophomores were peacefully sleep- ing, dreaming sweet dreams of banquets and glorious speeches, their enemies, the Freshmen, trembling with excitement, were posting sentinels about the halls. Warning whispers now and then hissed through the air, and all feared a humiliat- ing disgrace should the Sophomores e.scape without trouble. The air, laden with the dread portent of an approaching contest, perceptibly grew denser. An attempt to kidnap a Sophomore was foiled and then the Freshmen brought another gun into action. They had prepared shells of paper, filled with flour, calculated to burst upon impact. When the Sophomores gathered in a body to depart, the lights were extinguished and the fearful missiles hurled. Vigorous brushing and a few new hats afterward removed all signs of the bombardment. They proceeded to the depot followed afar off by the Freshmen. Promptly at 5.07 their train drew in and the puffing locomotive bore them swiftly onward towards New York. They arrived at the city about 8.00 A. M After engaging rooms at the Hotel Muro, they rode over the elevated to Park Place, where they were escorted through the City Hall by one of the officers. When the Mayor arrived they pre- sented the letter of introduction, kindly given them by Mayor Schaadt, of Allentown. He received them courteously, promising to help them out of trouble should they get into it, but advising them as to the dangers of the great metropolis. He also cau.sed letters to be prepared admitting them to the Navy Yard, Governor’s Island, and Blackwell’s Island. Thus armed they started to see the wonders of the city. They saw the sights in the Pulitzer Building and at the Stock Exchange ; they viewed the palatial residences on Fifth Avenue ; they visited the Navy Yard and saw part of the squadron of .ships then there; on Governor’s Island they received courteous attention at the hands of General Brooke ; Liberty Statue, the Grant Tomb and Brooklyn Bridge received their .share of attention, and — suffice it to say that the class saw New York. 178 The banquet was held Friday evening at 10.30. Several ex-members of the class were present, namely, Emil Fischer and Edward Mayer, but the class president, Paul J. Neff, was ab.sent on account of sickness. Vice-President R. J. Kauffman acted as toastmaster. Some had serious misgivings as to that part of the menu entitled “ pois.son. ” If it was simply a case of poor spelling they wished to be done with it. As the banquet progressed, it became apparent that onr hungry students were getting more than they could eat. To express it mathematically, their capacity " varied inversely as the square of the time consumed in eating. The speeches were models of oratorical skill, which could not fail to satisf} ' the most delicate intellectual appetite. The return of the cla.ss to Allentown occurred Sunday, January 27. The trip to New York will live long in the menior} ' of 1903, and will occup} one of the brightest pages of its history. Menu. Buitres. Blue Points Sur Coquille. cockthl. POT.VGK. Creme D’.yspeiges.

For the pla ' ers the tem- perature was ideal, and the breeze that blew throughout the da} ' was in ' igorating. For the several hundred spectators that same breeze was a cliilling blast until the exciting struggle was in progress, and then for them also the breeze was invigorating, fanning cheeks inflamed Iry cheering. The Fre.shmen battled manfully during the first half against their more experienced opponents, and the half ended without a score, unless we except the point scored when, by a sudden ru.sh. Timekeeper Shinier was bowled over by warriors Shalter nnd Kleckner. Experience and determination were, however, not to be denied, and the Sophomores scored twice in the second half. Telford, after ten minutes of play, scored the first touchdown on an end run from the twenty-five-yard line, and Specht made the .second score after repeated line plunging, eight minutes later. One goal was kicked, making the final score ; Sophomores, ri ; Freshmen, o. For the Freshmen, Kriebel, Kleckner, and Neubert excelled. The epi.sode, which ended in the partial destruction of the “Soph” banner, added materially to the interest of the day. The Freshman Sleigh=Ride I N the game mentioned on the previous page, the Class of 1903 scored eleven points. At the sleigh-riding game the Class of 1904 scored to the extent of — well, opinions differ ; ask a Freshman. It seems that in feats of strength (at least such has been the case up to date) the “ Sophs ” are superior, but in feats of mind, in the evolving of schemes requir- ing the wisdom of the Ithacan Ulysses, the Freshmen carry off the palm ; for, despite the destruction by the “Sophs” of brain cells and shoeleather in their effort to prevent the ride, they were successful. In a well-appointed team the Freshmen on February 5 sped away to Monterey, where a time internally and externally excellent was spent. The class is profuse in its praises of Mine Host Fisher, and heartily recom- mends him as a “ careful and competent ” host. The Freshmen assert that they were assisted in their good time by the abundance of “dough” which they pos- sessed and of which they were dispossessed. They claim that, whereas the ‘ ‘dough” used by the “Sophs” at their banquet was made of flour and water, that used by them was in the shape of silver nuggets. We refrain from a longer account, because the Freshman poet, properly inspired, has given his rendition in v erse on page 5 1 . 1 83 Why do 3’ou write those “ Charlie ” books ?

Delivered to the Juniors by Prof. Socrates Wiseacre, Ph.D., D.Sc., D.V.n., Envoy Extraordinary of the American Transmigration Society. OW, gentlemen, from what I have said during the past two hours, per- spicuity must be preponderating over obscurity. But, lest in the cerebrum of one of you there may be emsconced a dubitative thought as to the pertinency, relevancy, or applicability of my ideas to actual experience, I shall in closing present an argument — an optical r lusion based upon nomen- clature — that by its competency and plausibility must necessarily expunge that uncalled-for concatenation of ideas which restrains you, after two hours of syllogistic thought, from believing that souls transmigrate. “ It has been ascertained by scientific investigation that, during the centuries which elapse from the time that a man died in his former existence as a human being until his reappearance upon the earth in like form, the evolution and trans- migration in the letters of his name is sirch that it becomes exactly the reverse of what it was formerly. “ The names of the members of your class I have written upon the board, — as they now are and as they were in your former existence. Took at them care- fully and, as you feel a thrill of recognition run through your body, accept this as the last and most convincing proof of the now triumphantly and incontro- vertibly estimated fact that souls transmigrate.” ( WH.

WTre it not for the fact that the envelope bore the postmark of a Massachusetts town, where the feminines so glaringly aping the mental habiliments of their masculine brother, our good, by no means slow. Junior would have counted the receipt of it as a gross reflection upon his manl} attainments. The scheme concocted for a successful performance reads : To one piece of dark lawn Add a little moonlight ; Take for granted “Stoney” and “ Swipes.” Press in two strong ones A small soft hand ; Sift lightly two ounces of attraction. One of romance ; Add a large measure of folly ; Stir in a floating ruffle and one or two whispers ; Dissolve half a dozen glances in a well of silence ; Dust in a small quantity of hesitation, One ounce of resistance, two of yielding ; Place the kisses on a flushed cheek, or two lips ; Flavor with a slight scream and set aside to cool. This will succeed in any climate If directions are carefully followed. Will succeed best on Albright’s lawn. Then, to keep him guessing the more, they write : S. W. A. K. B. B. S. H. C. Y. K. May onr Juniors so conduct themselves that such advice will be unnecessary. HAZING OF A “PREP.” C OME, all ye students brave and true, From Freshman rank to Senior glory We wish to unfold a tale to you, So with us read our little story. In our thriving Academy There was a boy so young and small, Well known for his docility And jjleasant greetings to us all. Rosy cheeks and innocent smiles, With some moments at his leisure. Were all he had to meet the wiles Of sneaking “Sophs” bent on pleasure. Now up in room seventy-two The chief actors were collected. Each had his particular view How Strauss should be protected (?). Poor little I Ir, “Jimmy ” Strauss, P ' or that was his familiar name. Was told to squeak just like a mouse — To whistle and howl with might and main These hazers then ordered him To stand upon the table And dance the jig as he was able. Or have his ears cut close and prim. Thus for several nights and days. Unmindful of their coming doom. These smart “ Sophs ” in various ways Cast o’er this “ Prep ” a heavy gloom. vSCKNK II. Now, Strauss, who loves a fair contest. Straightway “ Prof.” Merkel consulted. And made a vigorous protest Against his being insulted. Then before His Royal Highness And the faithful faculty The case with a forensic slyness Was judged with great solemnity. 89 Each culprit solemnly declared His innocence of the accusation, And would not confess he was ensnared By the Board of Education. The evidence was so direct That it made two “ Sophs ” feel “ wilty,” And the jury was quite correct In saying that you at e guilty ! ” Their defense was wild gesticulation And sadly lacked verification. So three were held on eight weeks’ probation, Their “ pard ” sent home for a — vacation. This tale is true, as all confess. The sentence had a good effect Upon the actors — more or less, B ' or now the “Preps” command respect. A TWELVE=DOLLAR JOKE. wo Sophs stood one day at an old fakir’s stand. 1 With pockets well loaded with coin ; With wide-awake optics he saw their surprise. And asked them his shell game to join. ’Tis easy to win, boys, just do it like this. You’ll double your money I know ; They now saw the twist, and could not resist. But their sad experience should show, — There are two .sides to a fakir. He is in and you are out; For a rascal’s leading business. Is to deal with games of doubt. Chance doth bring but meagre fortune. So beware of undue scorchin’. There are two sides to a shell game. In and out. 190 A FABLE (?j. M y name is Jack, folks say I ' m wise, That man} ' a story I devise ; They sa} ' that I prevaricate — Make single things conduplicate. And now a story I have got, (Some fellow may get awful hot) ' Twas told me on the street one night ; I promised not to tell a wight. Hut since it’s you and you won’t tell I ' ll let it out, might just as well. To keep it longer in my brain creases Would cause that member to fly to pieces This story may be false or true, 1 do not know, but wish I knew. When a “ So])h " attempts a “ swell " to he Many complications often you see. A “ vSoph " is usually .self-sufficient ; Works out a lesson in a minute. Thinks that all wisdom ' fore him lies because he uses trigmetric eyes. Hut when a “ Soph ” at twenty-knot clip Has crossed the ocean in a really ship ; His walk partakes of the roll of the .sea. His talk is all about me, me. The “ Soph ” of our story, who had cros ' ed the sea. Heard of a ]ilay wonderful to see. His mind then conceived a brilliant idea Involving himself and fair Cytherea. To her home quickly he would go Talk entertainingly, you know, Of wealth, of health, fire and smoke And last of all of “ Hearts of Oak. " To see the play such desire he’d ’fuse That she when asked would not refuse (Tho’ seeing all his clever ruse) To visit the Lyric two b} ' twoes. In order to make this story’ shorter. We’ll cut cross lots, guess we ought to, { As did he, till his breath was spent, ) And briefly say — he went, he went. As an ap])le in orchard or store Consists of peeling, pulp, and core ; vSo the interview, tho’ many-sided. Into three parts may’ be divided. 91 As a boy having sw’allow’ed l)ulp and peeling Of the apple, views the core with feeling ; So of this talk lets view the core — We haven’t time for any more. When “ Soph ” in C3’therea’s smile did bask He forgot all about the show to ask. But to his faculties much deranged The whole affair seemed all arranged. He left, and when the night arrived When “ Hearts of Oak ” in the Lyric thrived, — (That other “ Sophs ” might stare and quake. Or, perhaps, lest he a cold might take,) He hired a cab and drove in state (And, as he thought, judicious!}’ late) To her house, where he expected To be received like a “ Gover wr " just elected. The cab drew to the door wdth a dash. “ Soph ” emerged from it like a flash. Up the steps with a jump he sprang. The door bell spiritedl}’ he rang. Steps sounded — surely she was coming ! ( He began his hat a-thumbing.) The door opened, — “ Why, Cjtherea ! ” He ended with — “ Excuse me-a.” For mother opened the door, 3’ou know. Wide, so that light without might flow. And said, with for him sorrowful feeling. That “ C3’therea was out for the evening.’’ Was he floored, or stunned, or only shocked ? Was his castle exploded or simply knocked ? Away he drove at slower pace And thought, and thought over the case. Alas ! he had taken for granted That of the play such desire he’d planted. That for him and for it she would wait, Were he to call early or late. Moral. Ye Sophomores, both great and small, Especially ye who are rather tall ; Let this advice be firml} ' implanted : Do NOT T.VKE TOO MUCH FOR GRANTED. 192 193 Switching . (A FEW THOUGHTS AND AMONG OTHER THOUGHTS A FEW ON A HORSETAIE. ) I F you, your horse, wagon, and harness, take a long drive, you will notice and be affected by different things. You will be seated in the middle of the seat and will notice that you are there. You will have a sense of vacancy — not in your stomach, for you have breakfasted — but the void is present. After a brain-racking process, during which you have been seeking the cause of your feel- ing of emptiness, you giv ' e voice to your feelings, and when no one answers — then you know in what that vacuum consists. You have no companion . You muse on what such companions do when they are present. First, you reflect, they give you one-third of the .seat and, just when you are about to exclaim against such injustice, you reason that one-third of a seat is better than a whole one ; you would gladlj ' sit on the floor if you only had a companion who woidd tell you to drive faster, or to be scared when you approach the railroad crossing, or to clasp 3’our arm when the carriage hangs sideways i n the gutter. And then you could talk and gradually " encroach upon your neighbor’s part of the seat until there would be only one-third left on that side and — the horse has his thoughts. He congratulates himself that he has one hundred and seventeen and one- half pounds le.ss to pull than he had last time, and that he is not subjected to the constant annoyance of a whip on his flanks. Hor.se sense tells him that he is having a good time of it ; nerve telegraphy sends him messages from different parts of his anatomy to the effect that “ Flies is bad horse sense comes to his rescue and makes him aware of the fact ( for a while forgotten) that he has a tail, and that he had better switch it and — switch it he does. Doubtless the wagon has a few sen.sations in the deepest fibers of its wood, and the fibrillae are glad that only one occupies the seat. Probably the swingle- tree congratulates the traces and the shafts affectionately rub against the hor.se’s collar. Yes, all but your.self are delighted with the void, — that is, they rejoice at Jiothing, and you are cast down by nothing. Who .said that the companion of your thoughts was “ nothing?” You prepare to fight and then notice, — not the countrj you have seen it before, but the house’s tail. You are very nearly asleep and begin to wonder if this species of tail is like the thing you saw down the road in a pond. Oh, no ! That is by some called a cattail, and the effort required to reach that conclusion partly rouses you. You once studied botany 194 and horsetails were called Equiseinm arvense. But is this a botanical tail ? Why, no ! Botany has to do with plants. Yes ! And now you watch the tail. It is doing what first-year school teachers do — it is switching. They do it on railroads, too. You once heard someone say that you were “ switching.” You looked it up and found switch to be an ob.solete word defined, ‘‘To walk with a jerk.” Humph ! You are nearly asleep again. Why does a house’s tail switch ? To keep off the flies, of course. Sensible horse ! Which way does a horse switch his tail ? From left to right, around a corner and back again. With a regular uDvement ? Sometimes, when flies sit down at regular intervals. Just then a green fly of immense proportions for a fly sits on the horse’s neck. He shakes his head ; the fly receives the salutation and remains, tighten- ing its hold. He switches, — but necks of horses, as well as of boys, were never meant to be switched. The fly remains. Then a kick, a jerk, and away 3’ou go and awake from your — was it sleep or onl} ' musing. You quiet the horse dis- lodge the fly, and decide that, in order to recover your faculties of body and mind — your body being shaken b} the horse’s jump, your miud by its switching thoughts — you will stop at a wayside inn and take a little ‘‘ switchel.” Now, ” switchel ” is in New England a beverage made of molasses and water. Where you stop it is made of— ask Eiebermann. After taking ‘‘ switchel ” you forget switching as applied to a horsetail. For putting one to sleep a switching horsetail is quite good ; but those who have tried it saj ' that switchel is better. Anyhow a horsetail is a good thing. ' 95 WHERE AND WHY T he Allentown choir girls Possess peculiar charms ; They fascinate the college boys Who love to take their arms. Now Beck attends St. Michael’s And hears in amaze The singing of the anthem So full of joy and praise. P ' reed, too, accompanies him To watch the adoration, And when the choir sings He’s filled with inspiration. Rohrig, not to be outdone, vSits on the other side And thinks it’s lots of fun The same spirit to imbibe. Out in Salem’s Reformed Mr. P ' egley you will find, And if the winds have stormed He’s there to be real kind. Far over to St. Peter’s P ' . Uhrich goes for a change ; He drinks in all the meters In the players’ classic range. Next comes our Solly Wenrich, sly. To Allentown so uth he goes Meekly Behringer so shy, In summer ' s heat, through winter’s snows. In St. John’s on Fifth street, near, Howard Shinier loves to tarry ; Not merely an anthem to hear. But to look at neighbor Carrie. Now, this is all we have to nay Concerning our churchly student ; There maj’ be more some other day. But just now ’twould not be prudent. 196 LAUNDRY. T here are some words which, often heard, Refuse to leave the nieniory ; Among such are, “ Prepare your shirt P ' or ‘ Troy ’ ( or ) ‘ Columbia ’ lauudr}-.” Who sjieaks these words ?

Having spent most of my post-graduate years abroad, I had not heard of the removal of this institution of learning from Allentown. Accordingly, I took an early train for the above-mentioned city for the accompli-shment of said purpose. I confe.ss, reluctantly enough, I a.ssure you, that I had fortified myself with quite an exaggerated conception of the celebrity of this city, which I calculated a lapse of fifty years would evolve, judging from the increasing ratio of consumption of the peanut during the time when I attended college there. Fortunately, however, my progress was not impeded in the least by shells which I expected to find in promiscuous heaps, the accumulation of years, which, on account of magnitude, could not easily be removed, as automobile drayage wagons are still very incomplete in mechanism. After the.se sanguine expectations had been badly shattered, I wended my way up Hamilton street with thankful heart and gracious mien, regaining gradually, as the scene of my college exploits and esc.spades loomed into view, that buoyancy of step and exuberancy of spirit which characterized me when it was my lot of a Sunda}- to precipitate my.self, with undue ceremony and inward .self-expostulation, upon the icy expanse of the morning for .spiritual refinement in the First Ward Mission. Ah ! the fond recollections of the good old times are the sta} " of my old age. But ill pursuance of my stor q let me say that when I reached Fourth and Walnut streets instead of the familiar .sight of the old college Imildings, I saw a number of private residences. I was amazed; a terrible thought dashed through my mind. What if Muhlenberg College .should have ceased to exist. The very thought caused a tear to steal from my left eye and become involved in the inner recesses of my beard. Such a thought was strengthened by the memory of certain rumors that enjoyed a desultory circulation in the j ear 1901, to the effect that there was a great probability that unless immediate steps were taken to provide more commodious college buildings, the future of Muhlenberg College would eventually re.solve itself into .something le.ss than any assignable quantity. I sa3q this bedimmed recollection lent gravit}’ to the suppo.sition that Muhlenberg, neglected Muhlenberg, had died of pecuniary starvation, a disease prevalent in Allentowui just about that time. I was in a quandar3 From a gentleman passing by I inquired whether Muhlenberg College still existed. This question provoked an outburst of uproarious laughter on his part. Upon pressing him for an explanation, he informed me that in 1903 the college had been removed from Allentown, and that the college was now a University. 209 After securing from him the location of the University and other information pertaining thereto, I retraced my steps to the station and took the next train in quest of the University of Muhlenberg. I say train, because the circumstances of the case demand it. In Physic’s recitation some days ago, something or other started me off on a train of thought. Now, ordinarily I don’t like to indulge in thinking because I consider it a useless process, especially for a college student, so please disabuse your mind of the inference that such an occurrence is common with me. Howev er, I actually did leave class on that particular train, and was rapidly being carried over areas of forgetfulness and reverie, utterly oblivious of my .surroundings, and revelling in the activities of the imagination. Suddenly there was a collision that almost rolled me off my seat. At the first opportunit} I collected myself (because I’ve heard that is the proper thing to do on such occasions) and inquired what the cause of the accident was. The fellow to my left informed me that one of the prof.’s questions collided with my train of thought, but that no one was hurt except myself, who had received only a scratch. (The prof, did it with his little pencil.) Now a scratch is a “ flunk,” and a ‘‘ flunk ” means nothing ; therefore, after all no one was hurt. Here is a question for you, gentle reader : Could I have reached The University of Muhlenberg by any train other than that of Thought? (Signed), Cant U. Dobetter. 210 eating ceub.

A curly-haired dignitary journeyed to Catasauqua and graciously invited two of her fair daughters to enjoy the occasion with him. Like Caesar, they came, .saw and “ did ” Edward. After the eleventh hour had been far .spent, the ecstatic trio, wearied with the gaities of the evening, de.scended to the streets to take the homeward car. But the usual whizzing was no longer heard. “ D the luck,” quoth he. ‘‘ What shall I do ? What can I do?” ” Aha, I have it,” he exclaimed, as he heard the whistle of the midnight train ; and with a maiden on each arm, ru-shing along at full .speed, he reached the depot just in time to be too late for aught but boarding the train. No tickets ? No, nothing, but two tired dears and a lonely fifty-cent piece. “Piddie,” with a lordly air, inquired; ‘‘How much for three?” ‘‘Sixty cents,” said the man in blue, taking ‘‘ Eddie’s ” breath. He recovered sufficiently to pre.sent his half-dollar and to appeal, desperately, to be passed for that amount. Intuitively and instantaneously the conductor grasped the situation and his coin, saying: ‘‘Young man. I’ll let you go for half-fare.” Tell us, ” Eddie,” how did you return home? No. II. He is a tall young man, and his name is T . Having been strongly imbued with a desire to call on one of his lady acquaintances, who lives at Hokendauqua, he picked up a little courage, and, having given himself a friendly good-bye and a cordial handshake, he shuffled out of the college buildings with more than ordinary alacrity. The glowing eye, the exuberant step, and the swelling of the manly bo.som betokened the anticipated joy of our hero as he sped Hokendauquaward. He enjoyed himself thoroughly while there, if we may judge from the haste and precipitation necessary to catch the last car for Allentown. In the confusion of a ha.sty leave-taking, he snatched his overcoat and with unspeakable difficulty fought his way into it. In fact, the feat was accomplished only after he had received the assistance of a sympathetic passenger. You, who have experienced the annoyance of having put on .someone else’s overcoat by mistake, which coat. 214 perchance, may be six inches too short as to the sleeves, and twice as much shy in chest expansion, can easily imagine the situation. He had grabbed her brother’s overcoat, and was even now on his way back to restore the coat to its rightful owner. Upon reaching the liouse, his sense of the propriety of things received a shock as he reflected that by ringing the bell he would disturb the equanimity of the folks already in the sweet embrace of slumber. Accordingly, he knocked at the door as gently as his .scruples and disconcertion would allow. She listened; there was a tapping, yea, a gentle rapping, as if some one at the front door. She was afraid and cried unto her brother, who, pistol in hand, hurried to the scene and demanded of the intruder outside the nature of his business. Then was there a wee sina’ voice heard outside, and there were explanations, and now “ This tale’s told out. ’ ’ DUCK FARM BANQUET LYRIC.

That Junior Class it loes surpass All others in mathematics, I do not see How all can be So clever in analytics. InvkniT ; At this juncture, while perambulating the room still intoxicated as to its atmosphere by the effusion of a customary elucidation of the " occult” principles of the science already referred to, he comes upon a suspicious-looking stray animal, presumably the personal property of a mendjer of the Junior Bunch. The j)oor beast is immediately impounded by the finder, ostensibly to await a claimant, llpon mature cogitation, whether by sine or cosine is immaterial, suspicions are confirmed. Whereupon, But now I see How all can be So clever in analytics, he Junior Class I will not pass, o, not one in mathematics. So that to show That he did know Just how the trick was done. He struck the air ' Round ev ' rywhere And said, " I ' ll flunk more ' n one.” Unless I find That I ' m unkind To believe just what I do ; So down the line He read in fine. And assigned them not a few. VenerunT : Away they went With heads not bent To the blackboard went thej ' all ; And b}’ the wa} We’re glad to say. They explained them all in all. Perturb. TUR : But wait and hear Without a fear What is the explanation ; Dixit INCEI ' IT MiSIT T1 N( 220 How Glase and Bill Went through the mill Without much trepidation. Those little boys, They are no toys, And horses the}- never ride ; That’s why, you know. It fooled him so When he laid all jokes aside. IIorTamur : And now to you We bid adieu. With one word of admonition. If you, dear class. Would gently jiass Through, without a condition. Mon KM us : Work with a vim, Be’t sink or swim, Just work the animal for fair ; And we’ll allow You’ll pass somehow. By riding hard to get there. (H-XIMUS. ) 221 THE ATLENTOWN fair. Vagaries You may have liear 1 of “The B03’ in tlie Apple-tree,” but you never heard that the boy was the Appel. There is a young tnan who never sings Bach, and probably never will, and yet his name is Bachman. Prof. Dowell asked him the meaning of Na2 SNO:!. The boy replied: vSodium linnate. We doubt whether tin ever ate sodium ; so here’s one on Beck, but don’t call him, beckon. He tells us that once during sleep his arm became involved in his sus- penders which happened to hang in his alcove near by, and that the involun- tary action was the result of habit reinforced by the vividness of his dream. He withdrew his arm from the waist of the suspenders, and now his name is Freed. You have often heard of the gable end, but you will never hear the end of Gable. A well of ink could not make an Ink well. Kis , with a little stretch of the imagination, will mean an osculatory demonstration. By dropping the 1 , plus another stretch of the imagination, the significance of the term Kistler will easdy l)e seen to be : He kissed her. He was an intellectual prodigy from the outstart, so that whenever his friends alluded to his mentality they would say that none was keener than his. That’s why he is known to-day as Kuehner. After an e.xhaustive investigation and an extended psN ' chological research, we have dis- covered that when a hoy he had acquired the halut of slighting the full pronunciation of the last syllable of words ending in ling, pronouncing it “ lin.” To cure him of this habit he was no doubt named D3mu. Some one erroneously calculated that “ Bill ” would “ grin 1 ” when he got to college, so it was thought appropriate to give him the name Miller. Let him act Weisley.

Efenger Bartholomew, Now he’s an amorous fellow ; But Beck will counteract it. For he’s mature and mellow. Phil Brunner follows next in line, P ' rom Reading he broke loose ; George Fegely ' s sort of neat and fine, But oftentimes obtuse. J. Ralphus P ' reed from Doylestown hails. He cultivates his hair ; Then Gable, good old soul is he. Will treat you right and square. Up rushes Geiger from Norristown, And wins by just a head ; When .sleepy Glase crawls from his couch, With, “That’s just what I said.’’ Then Clarence Heckenberger, He seems a sort of Tiller ; But Matty Heilig beats the band, He’s a reg’lar Foxy Ouiller. Now, Lewis Ink’s a curious lad. He’s fond of reading books ; And Kistler is a very sad Mistake, the wa - it looks. Next Quincy Kuehner, from Little Gap, Comes in and makes his bow ; Then Lindenmuth, that busy man, Vppears with wrinkled brow. Young Lindenstruth, from cold Mauch Chuuk, His quiet W’ay does wend ; But Lynn hastes quickly up the steps, And to his pipe does tend. McFetridge seems but half awake, Was out last night too late ; Then Moyer paces up in line. With his ordinary gait. 224 Columbia sends her Miller forth, To aid the chapel choir ; And after him comes lawyer Rupp, Prohibition to inspire. Soon tumbles in our Jacob Scholl, With pleasant smiling face ; Then Uhrich, Frank, resumes his task. To fit the right word in its place. Real wisely does our Weisley vie. To escape our German teacher’s eye ; Then Woodring comes with stacks of books. At which he very seldom looks. At last Clint. Zerweck shows his face. And talks as though he owned the place ; But when we all come hand in hand. We prove a happy, learned (?) band. 225 , cju tcl 11 0 n pectprfv jC Yxim 226 Taps.

Becau-se his heart is set on chickens, which fact was recently ' established at North Wales, where he gorged himself with so much chicken that he wa s incapacitated for singing at the Clee Club concert. Woodring refused to accompan}- a -oung ladv to her home after the reception tendered the Clee Club at Hokendaiujua, on account of entangling affiliations in Allentown, but .Serfass refused on the ]ilea that he felt disinclined to walk a possible three or four miles into tlie countrj ' , and yet it has developed that all the j ' oung ladies present dwelt within a radius of two squares.
