BERS likens student life to the blissful days in May and June, when only light
clouds iioat in the sky and when nature is clothed in her most pleasing garb.
One of the things which, in after years, will tend to remind us of the
pleasant days spent at our Alma Mater is the CIARLA. It has been the aim of the
present staff to present everything in a manner corresponding to and suggestive of
joyous college days.
Time brings with it changes, and in this publication a few, and we trust,
benencial changes have been made from those of former years. We do not Wish
to boast of its excellence but leave the verdict to the reader.
With the assurance that he who does his best does well, we present to the
students, the alumni, and the friends of Muhlenberg, the CIARLA of the Class
CARDINAI.. AND STEEL GRAY.

By the morrow grace our den?
We've been Waiting long enough
For the gol-darned rotten stuff.
His!0rz'a1z. Vain I'd write a history,
That seem to me great mystery.
If next Week is soon enough,
I'll attempt another bluff.
Board. What Wilt write tl1en, pray, instead?
Fiction, poetry, history's dead.
Hi5f01'ia1L. If to this you'll all agree,
I'll attempt a prophecy. I

From good school, nxethinlcs, they're come.
Si. Peler fto first rnanl. Speak, mortal, fain we would hear
What has brought thy footsteps here.
Fiwfsi man Ctrembling noticeablyj. I am first 'mong these in name
Behind in fame-'tis my shame g
Base-ball was my forte on earth,
I would play on better hearth.

Fools, sir, as thou dost see.
Szf. Peler finterruptingj. Speak on I What do ye do?
Third man. While ceaseless long our path we go,
Hard pressed by a world of woe,
Nothing e'er delights us so,
As when from fair countenance,
They do give their gentle glance,
When at 'eve we take our ease,
CFor we now do things to pleasej,
Fortune us can never tease,
VVhen, if with their fairy dance,
They do give their gentle glance.
When at night, we tune each string,
And gently urge them to it sing,
Life for us has lost its sting,
When, as if in dreamy trance,
They do give their gentle glance.
Sl. Pcier finterruptingj. Fools, indeed, I do perceive
Frorn me, now, admission seek,
Nothing eler disgusts me so,
As when with the crazy dance u
They do give their gentle glance.

FOIl7'ffZ man Qleader of another groupj. St. Peter, sir, we're come
Though a world of misery.

But smoked, drank, bowled, and so did live,
As great grief to thy heart to bring.
Si. Peier. Your sins my heart do sorely tear,
But for your penance, I forbear.

Far removed from vain wor1d's fear?
Diczbolos Qencouraginglyj. Chirping birds and humming bees,
Roaming 'round among the trees,
The whistling wind, the rippling brook-
,These will make your wanderings dear
And cheer you in this quiet nook.
Cheerful thoughts and cheering words,
Flowing from fond friendship forth,
The longing glance, the ling'ring look-
These attend you, Wanderers, here,
And make you soon forget text-books.
Bunch Qin unisonj. Let us enter.
Creaking chains and rumbling doors,
Fearful flashes, horrible roars,
Burning steam, scorching floor,
Scornful laugh-spas1n's o'er.

N eighteen 'ninety-nine
To Muhlenberg, so fine,
There came a Class,
Whom none could pass,
Whose famine shall ever shine g
Their colors, drab and white,
Are bright as stars at night,
And maidens fair
Do all declare
" They're simply out of sightf'
Rah, Rah, Rah! Rah, Rah, Rah!
Rah for Nineteen 'Three,
She sets the pace for every 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 Nineu en 'Three,
It is no jest,
They'd be impressed
Upon your memory g
For some are very tall,
And others very small,
But, on the whole,
Upon my soul,
They are the best of all.-CHO.
In Virlzze We're on top 5
Our Kvzozvledge none can stop g
As you can see,
Is never on the drop g
I tell you we're the stuff,
And that's no idle bluff,
The Drab and White,
Is just all right,
So let that be enough.-CHO.

History of 1904,
HE history of the Class of 1904 again presents itself to the public for further
' consideration and approbation. The time has indeed arrived that we too are
'Mable to bear the proud name of a Junior. Two years ago we entered these
classic halls as green a set of Freshmen as ever stalked forth to any halls of
learning. Wliat chills crept up our backs when wewere forced to converse with
a proud Senior. How unsteady were our limbs during the youth of our college
life, when, in recitation halls the perplexing questions were cast upon us. The
future at times seemed so dark that often the question confronted us, " How will
we ever be able to penetrate its hidden mysteries? " But thus far we have over-
come all difficulties and obstacles, and willingly bear witness to the fact that
"Junior year is the beginning of college life." A wonderful change is indeed
seen when one passes from the " wise fools " into the atmosphere of a higher life.
This undoubtedly is brought about by the many questions and discoveries, seeming
an enigma to the mind, which present themselves in the course of time. Questions
that have been a great puzzle to our minds, and wonderful discoveries, have pre-
sented themselves during this short period of time, and willingly do we accept
them as true and honest facts, neither opposing the thought of the ancient philoso-
phers. The Cosmological and teleological evidences of natural theology have in a
wonderful way demonstrated and proved to us that there is an Intelligent
Designer or VVise Creator. Chemistry has plainly shown us the way into the
hidden mysteries of nature, and'it is but a short period of time when the members
of this famous Class will prove to the world that the few simple elements existing
are not in themselves simple, but a combination of other elements. Calculus,
which seems a murderer to the eyes of all students, is our dearest friend, and
would that a little " ifzcffemefzf' could be added to some for those who will shortly
follow our footsteps. Truly easily and willingly we could lead you through our
whole course of learning and point out the beneficial results obtained, but enough
has been said. The remainder we leave to be judged by our superiors and infe-
riors who in due time will report to us the results of their deliberations.
Regarding Class contests we must remain silent, as no opportunities presented
themselves to demonstrate the real strength of 1904 3 however we would suggest,
that when Muhlenberg reaches its great fame the contests be renewed to show the
real strength of Classes and create college spirit among the students.
Intellectually our Class holds its own. How conscientiously have we labored
to master the thoughts of the great philosophers. One principle in particular We
hold very precious 5 one that will long be remembered by a few of the members of
our Class g one that has made college life a burden for many students during col-
lege days, the great and mighty principle for the " Removal of Conditions."
Another fact we Wish to impress upon our readers, and one that no other
Class is capable of producing: our Class is composed of musicians, Whose very
works have already made them famous. Some are great manipulators of the
piano 3 others have made their mark by the use of the fiddle, While still others are
capable of handling every instrument in a brass band from a bass drum to a
clarionet. The very walls seem to vibrate from the melodies that seem to flow
from such instruments, and even the incoming Freshmen have stood in amazement
and exclaimed, "Truly this must be the music of the angels."
We sincerely and sorrovvfully feel that we are nearing the end of our college
days, and that it is but a short space of time When dear. old Muhlenberg Will cast
us upon the stage of action where each and every one musti perform his allotted
part. We trust that all will cling closely to our dear old motto, " E310 Quad via'-
erisf' and hold it as a new star in the Hrmament whose rays may cheerfully guide
us during the action of our lives.

KTUNIZI " My Tiger Lily."j
F all the boys who went before
Through any classic hall,
There were not at any time
Any others so sublime
On this terrestrial ball 3
To End the like of Nineteen 'Four
We don't care where you go g
For in all this mighty land
There are none one-half as grand
From Maine to Mexico.
Eszfo yzmd videfiis !
Now just consider this,
The Lavender and Purple we adore :
" Be what you seem to be,"
Whenever this you see,
Youill know we're members of the Class of Nineteen 'Four
Old Muhlenberg would be quite lost
If we were not on hand.
The other fellows try
To do us, but, oh my!
They don't have half the sand g
We keep the lead at any cost,
We're big-bugs to the core.
At our pace they can not go,
As they are too dog-on'd slow.
For good old Nineteen 'Four.-CHO.
In after years the world will know
The greatness of our fame 5
The mountain-sides will ring
And history will sing
The praises of our name.
As through our college days We go
We'll take things as they come,
And come they surely will g
Our place the rest can't iill,
For they are on the bum.-CHO.

History of 1905.
E are for the second time made subjects to the public. Swiftly has time
Y passed away. One year of faithful labor has made a marvelous change in
our mode of life. Our number has been, to our deep regret, somewhat
reduced, our history greatly changed, and our class spirit vastly increased.
We closed the history of our Freshman year with that memorable event, the
Freshman Play. Our business manager and various committees worked hard to
make it a success, and by their efforts, as well as those who took part in it, made
it an honor both to 'o5 and the institution. Our play was a financial success,
which we largely owe to the kindness of the ladies for their patronage. 'We can
not fail to remember the joyful times we had at the rehearsals, and how proud we
felt at our full-dress rehearsal, the night before its rendition, that we were capable
of calling forth such talent. Greatly disturbed were the gentlemen of 'o4, who
occupied the two upper boxes, at seeing how calmly we steadied our nerves and
quaking limbs g and beginning to feel that all honor was being bestowed upon ns,
their envy arose to such a height, that they attempted to confuse us by the delivery
of a shower of cabbage heads, potatoes, radishes, tomatoes, etc., etc., but we
bravely weathered the storm, and sailed into port with flying colors.
The summer vacation was our next pleasure, and after regaining our health
and strength, we came back one bright September day to begin our second year of
trials with a new vigor.
We beheld at various spots upon the campus before our Alma Mater small
groups of babes sucking each other's thumbs and drying each other's eyes, trying
to quiet the sorrowful feeling of being at last cast alone into this wicked world, far
away from the watchful eyes of their nurses. These babes soon began to swell in
all dimensions, and actually grew so fresh that we had to take it upon ourselves to
lord and master them,
Our first attempt was made on the stairs, which we blocked and boldly held
until some of the gentlemen of 'o4, seeing the peril in which the babes were, at
once gave them their assistance QD, Thus, after a fierce struggle, we yielded.
Now this simply upset these youths, so that their swelling increased something
wonderfully. But soon it reached its climax, for, when they beheld us upon the
gridiron, they knew their fate was sealed. They certainly urged their larger ones
to the limit, but all in vain. For we, when once starting down the Held, could not
be repelled by their feeble attacks. W'e left them upon the battle-field wounded
and broken hearted, while we were cheering and singing the score of 28-62
Looking ahead into the future we beheld a glowing star, " the Enjoyment of
Our Banquet." Time drew near for this event. Various types of characters
were seen strolling about the town, during the early hours of different morns,
evidently trying to waylay their lords and masters as they departed from the city
for their banquet. But they Cthe Sophsj did not appear on these different morns,
and thus these characters Qthe Freshiesj becoming angry at their many disappoint-
ments, gave up the watch. But on the morn of March 9th, IQO3, while all was
quiet and they were fast asleep, we departed from our Alma Mater and boarded a
train for New York where our banquet was held.
In conclusion I have only to say to the reader that the most popular impres-
sion of a Sophomore, is that he is somewhat of a bravvler and a great deal of a
braggart. But if the conduct of 1905 is not shown to contradict this, it is the
fault of the historian and not of the Class. Our past life at Muhlenberg has been
one of pleasure, and our future is full of hope.

O you see those jolly students,
Walking down the shady lawn,
Full of mirth and full of laughter,
Boys of muscle and of brawn?
Yes, I hear their merry joking,
As they gaily pass along,
W'ith their spirits full of sunshine,
And their life unending song.
They, my friend, are Sophomores-
The College Class of 1905 9
Don't you see the Freshmen scatter
Wlieii these sturdy lads arrive?
They are brave and daring boys,
Full of life and full of fire g
Sometimes of good fellowship,
Then again, relentless ire.
They were worsted in the rush,
Beaten, battered, and dismayed,
But they lost not hope and courage,
Not the least their name betrayed.
For they marshalled out a force,
Strong as any e'er played ball g
And the " Freshies " little dreamt
Of their dark and gloomy fall.
On a crisp November day
Came that fateful clash of arms,
And the Freshmen sadly learned
Thatithey " struck no false alarms.
For the Sophomores szefep! the Held,
And itts glorious to relate
How they trotted off with vict'ry
To the time of " twenty-eight."
Yes, these boys will once be men,
Brave and faithful, true and-strong
Towers of light they'1l always be
As they mingle with lifeis throng.
On thewworld to leave an impress,
Stamped with truth and virtue's seal
Teaching men a nobler life
Is their loftiest ideal.

History of Class of 1906.
SENIOR, a Junior, and a Sophomore were seated at a table in a restaurant,
eating oysters and drinking soda water. As it was the opening day of the
college, the Freshman was an important factor in the conversation.
" Have you seen any of the '06 men?" asked the Senior.
" Nof' said the Junior, " but I heard that they were all right."
" Well, I should say they were," responded the Senior as he swallowed an
oyster. " You ought to see how many big men they have, Some of them look
as though they could wipe up the universe with the Sophs. I tell you, fellows,
there will be ' something doing., Isn't that so, Soph? "
But the Sophomore said nothing. He drank his soda water in silence, and
there was a troubled look on his face 5 for he realized that he would soon meet his
master, From that time on, the Freshmen became a horrible nightmare to him.
The prophecy uttered by the Senior was fulfilled to the letter on the day of
the stair-rush. Everyone who was there must admit that there was truly " some-
thing doing " Qenough to satisfy alll and, afterwards, the Sophs were badly
" donef' There the Class of ,o6 achieved a brilliant victory and secured the
distinction of being the first Freshman Class in eight years that won the rush.
" How did they do it? " you may ask. Well, we had decided at the beginning of
the term that we would break through the Sophomores' lines 5 and, " where there's
a will, you know, there's also a way."
Wliat a contest that was I Words can hardly describe it. The Sophs were
lined up on the stairway in close order, waiting for their foes like wild beasts driven
to bay. The sturdy lines of Freshmen rushed out of the recitation room and
threw themselves on the phalanx on the stairway. For a short time one could
see only a maze of feet and arms and Sophs, wiping up the stairs 5 then, with a
great cheer, the Freshmen emerged victorious, while the Sophs were wondering
what struck them,
But these Sophs were not satisied. They organized a " Painting Gesell-
schaftl' and went out one night to paint the town green. They had nothing else
to do, Now, unfortunately for them, they were so slow that the swift Allentown
police force scented them and got on their trail. Of course, it vvasn't long before
they were driven like lambs to the slaughter, bitterly lamenting their untimely
fate. But the Mayor had mercy on them, considering their tender age and know-
ing that they were not responsible for what they did, and discharged them, telling
them to run home to mamma.
It was then time for our boys to have their little painting excursion. This
was carried out successfully, and the Sophs were shown how to do it. Serenades
were given at each Sopho1ndre's door, but they failed to respond or to invite ns in.
Strange, isn't it? Where were their manners? '
Now, regarding the Class foot-ball game, " there is much to be said on both
sides." Still, we think that some explanation is due to the public. The question
can easily be solved by geometry: we have given eleven Freshmen and eleven
Sophomores. Let the referee be a Senior, hostile to the Freshmen, and let the
Sophomores be the heavier of the two teams. To find the result of the game.
27-6 in favor of the Sophs. Q. E D.
And then came the sleighride on the fifteenth of December. Favored by an
early fall of snow we were given the opportunity of having this ride before the
Christmas vacation, and we did not let the chance go by. Before leaving the city
we passed the college and made the air resound with cheers, to let the students
know that the Freshman sleighride was not a mere dream but a reality.
It was not long before we reached our destination, Macungie, where a finely
prepared turkey supper was awaiting us. We needed no second invitation to sit
down at the table, but soon made the turkeys negative quantities 5 even the
dyspeptic members forgot the doctor's instructions and took advantage of the
opportunity to enjoy a good, square meal. When the repast was over, the table
looked like a quick lunch counter after the noon rush. Then we were given an
intellectual feast, at which President Schantz presided. The toasts were sparkling
with wit and wisdom, and were enjoyed as much as the turkeys.
Soon afterwards the homeward trip was begun in a drizzling rain, which,
however, did not dampen our spirits, but rather added more fun to the ride. It
was early in the morning when we returned, but we did not care about that.
The sleighride to Macungie will hold a permanent place in our memory, and,-X
will be recorded as another ofthe great events of our nrst year at Muhlenberg.
And now, as we look back over these events, we must admit that the history
of the Class of 'o6 thus far has been one of which we need not be ashamed. The
future is also bright for us, and, having had a good representation in the college
play, we can undertake our Freshman play with greater assurance of its success.

HIRTY-SIX years have already passed since the organization of Sophronia.
She has always been noted for the loyalty of her sons, and that this is still a
characteristic of her members is shown by the large number of new students
who joined her ranks during the last year. Among her present members are
found the sons of those who, decades ago, upheld her banner. The prosperity
that has always been hers is becoming greater year by year, the past year being
one of especial advancement. .
The training she gives to her members is shown by the fame her orators have
brought to the college during the last few years. Her library has been fortunate
in being replenished with books of the most excellent standards. The interest
shown by all her members in the literary work is most gratifying.
The outlook for the future is most promising, and Sophronia will be able
to Welcome her alumni to her hall during coinmencement week under the most
favorable and encouraging circumstances.

Euterpean Literary Society.
HE Euterpean Literary Society was organized in 1867 by men who thought it
exceedingly essential to devote at least one afternoon every 'week throughout
the collegiate year to literary work, since men of intellect and knowledge
have ever. been called upon to impart that which they know. They thought, in
this way, the student could develop the faculty of thinking and- expressing himself
while on his feet. . VVith this end in view the Euterpean Literary Society offers
her members every opportunity to "Watcl1 and Advance." If the student is
regular in attendance during the four years of his course, he can develop his
expressive powers to a wonderful degree. .
She has at present fifty-eight members, and, judging from the work done in
the society during the year, we can safely say that all were greatly benefited.
More interest in society work could not be manifested than that shown by
Euterpea's men of quality. The society has added one hundred volumes of science,
travel, history, biography, and fiction to her library during the last six months.
The library now contains two thousand and eight hundred volumes.
Euterpea has always had her share of honor men, and she can always feel
proud ofthe able men she has sent out in the various walks of life. May her
members ever remember what Euterpea has done for them, and may she in the
future attain a mark that will overshadow all her past work.

The Sophomore Banquet.
193 .23 199
URING the second term of each collegiate year the Sophomore Class makes
an attempt to do away with some of the money gained at the play given in
their Freshman year. The Class of IQO5 having gained a handsome sum also
decided to hold a banquet in order to fall in line with the custom of former classes.
From the very beginning the Sophomores worked together as one unit, and the
Freshmen knew that to keep them from going meant hard work, and they left no
stone unturned in order to hinder the leave-taking on the part of the Sophomores.
But in spite of all their efforts the Class of 1905 left one of the most prominent
places of Allentown, in a body, on the morning of March 9th at about milking
time. A time when the Freshmen are as alert as ever.
Vtfhen, later in the clay, they were informed that the Sophoniores had left for
New York, they could truly call themselves the class of nineteen Qsickjs. Wliile
in this state of mind they took advantage of the Sophomores' absence and put up
their rooms in a manner that was worth seeing.
The ranks of the Sophomores had been thinned somewhat by sickness and
death of relatives, and, as their Class is unusually small as it is, there were only six-
teen of them who had the privilege of taking the trip.
They arrived at New York about 9 o'clock. After procuring rooms at the
Cosmopolitan Hotel the majority of them visited the Eden Musee where they spent
the afternoon, because of inclement weather. In the evening they were repre-
sented in a number of the leading theatres of that city. The next day brought
with it the beautiful sights of New York harbor, Brooklyn bridge, and the Navy
Yard. While at the Navy Yard they had the rare opportunity of being shown
through the ship that fired the first gun' in the Spanish-American War, namely,
the Raleigh. During the two following days such places as the Museum of Art,
Museum of Natural History, Grant's Tomb, the Obelisk, Staten Island, the Stock
Exchange and many other places of like interest were visited.
On March Ioth in the evening, at 9 o'clock, they held their banquet in the
dining-room of the Cosmopolitan Hotel. There were many brief impromptu toasts
which helped to enliven the occasion. Their worthy president and toast-master,
joseph R. Tallman, introduced those who were called upon to give toasts with such
fluent and eulogizing language that they could not help being inspired.
They returned to Allentown on, March 12th, after a stay of four days, fully
satisfied with their trip.

Freshman-Sophomore Foot-Ball Game.
T length the seventh day of November dawned upon Muhlenberg. It was a
day towards which the Sophornores looked with fond anticipation, while the
Freshmen, apprehensive of their inexperience, welcomed the day with great
determination. The critical hour was soon at hand and occasioned unexpected
emulation and contention for the supremacy
on the gridiron. The Freshmen
battled manfully during the first half against their more experienced competitors.
The splendid team work of the Sophs, the stubborn defence of the Freshmen, and
the individual playing of Dorney, Kidd, Spohn, Bittner, Raub, and Schantz,
robbed the game of its desultory character.

The Freshman Sleighride.
ITH the first heavy snowfall of the year interest deepens among all the
classes at college in the approaching Freshman sleighride, of which the
snow is a forerunner. You can then see along the halls little knots of
Freshmen and Sophmores showing a deep interest in some- subject, the discussion
of which is promptly dropped as some other classman approaches, until some more
opportune time. The Freshmen put forth their best efforts in planning this event
so that the Sophomores may know nothing of the same and perchance try to pre-
vent it. The " Sophs" on the other hand 'turn their SZlpE7'Z.07 intellect, turn all
their acquired wisdom into formulating plans and schemes by which they may
defeat the plans of the Freshmen, and, if possible, keep them from going on their
This year, however, the Freshmen scored a complete victory over their friends
the "Sophs" in this respect. Our plans were so well formulated that, at a
rnoment's notice, we could be off, and on the 15th of December, 1902, before the
" Sophs" had time to interfere-before ever, in fact, they fully realized that we
were off-two sleighs filled with staunch supporters of the Black and Yellow sped
by old Muhlenberg, and, by their hearty yelling, the Freshmen convinced the
doubting ones that we were really off, bound for Macungie.
In spite of the fact that the "Sophs" had telephoned that we would not
come, " mine host," Herr Diener, was not misled, but gave us a warm, Pennsyl-
vania German welcome. Games and music were indulged in and enjoyed before
the banquet. While we enjoyed the strains of music produced by a piano, We also,
very graciously, dispensed music upon anything from a fish-horn to a tin pan to
the residents of Macungie, gratuitously. We hope they appreciated our efforts to
please them. We enjoyed ourselves at the time, and ours will be more lasting if
we know that it was mutual.
Long before the hour set for the dinner our eyes were turned longingly upon
the banqueting-board, fairly burdened with good things. At the invitation 'to sit
down to this, our first social affair as a Class, no one needed a second call.
" The proof of the pudding is the eating of it." In this case, however the
eating of the turkeys, the puddings, and other good things, which disappeared
with incredible rapidity, were a proof of our hunger, and also, incidentally, of the
toothsomeness of the dishes. Q
" Let the toast pass Q
Drink to the lass g V
I'll warrant she'l1 prove an excuse for the glass!
After dinner Mr. Schantz acquitted himself very creditably as toastmaster,
calling upon different members of the Class for toasts, which were all well given
and Well received.
' You have all heard the expression : " And the next day it rained." Well,
so it did on this occasion. Witli a clear sky above us We had started on our sleigh-
ride, but when, in the small hours of the night, We started for home, a drizzling
rain was a rather doleful accompaniment to the merry chime of the sleighbells.
Luckily We were Well supplied with blankets, which kept the rain off, and thus,
not suffering greatly from the Weather, We never ceased in giving our Class yells
with unsubdued energy, and many a sleeper along our line was rudely awakened
by the sound of:
Rip, Rah, Rix !
Fip, Fah, Fix!
Muhlenberg, Muhlenberg !

Of all the most pleasant things in the world nothing more delights and enlivens
the human heart than music. It is therefore with pleasure that we present to the
interested reader a brief sketch of him to whom music is not only the chief delight,
but the means by which he inspires and delights the hearts of others. XVARREN
FRANKLIN ACKER, who stands alphabetically nrst in his Class, a distinction
of which he is very proud, is the name of the person whose congenial
countenance you now behold Born in the City of Allentown in the month of
March, 1883, he in early life gave evidence of the fact that Euterpe had be-
queathed to him all the requisites ofa great musician. He received the proper
instruction for the development of this talent, and had already attained fame in
his line before entering college in the fall of rboo, so that he stands not only first
alphabetically but also first among our many musicians. The English Bishop
Cambanius, in the time of Henry II., wrote that " man feeds on sweet odors and
sweet music," but as Warren is a native of Allentown, he feeds on sweet music
and roasted peanuts, being almost as fond of the latter as of the former. In fact,
he says that the proficiency he has gained in music is largely due to the fact that
peanuts formed his chief article of diet. The schools of Allentown were the
sources from which he received his preparatory education, graduating from the
High School in 1900, He is at present pianist for the local Y. M. C. A., and
organist in one of the city's largest churches. After graduating from college he
will take a course at a musical conservatory, then settle in his native city where
his musical strains will rival those of a Wagner or a Beethoven.
" Ther is no man nowher so vertuous,
He is the best beggere i11 his hans 5
For thogh a widne had noght a sho,

Behold a philosopher-a distant disciple of Socrates, and therefore a born
questioner. Many of his questions would undoubtedly have puzzled that ancient
philosopher himself. 'With this brief introduction we present to you MARK
LEOPOLD BURGER, who savv the " prima lnca H in the City of Allentown, Pa., on
January 5th, 1884. After attending the public schools and graduating from the
Allentown High School, he entered Muhlenberg College in the fallof igoo. Since
attending the Allentovvn'High School he is better known among his associates as
" Spooneyf' He feels proud of this distinction, and no other word will as readily
appease his wrath. This term has especially a very soothing effect when his hat
or rubbers mysteriously disappear in the class-room. As a philosopher our friend
has, ever since entering college, been greatly puzzled with the profound mystery
of dreams. Are We conscious of all dreams? Do all persons dream? Why are
some of my dreams unpleasant and mysterious? On what do these hideous creatures
feed? The foregoing are only given as examples, as it would be impossible to
present to the reader all the different phases of the subject upon which our friend
is philosophizing. He has been making some progress, and, when yet a Sopho-
more, obtained some valuable information during the Week of the banquet, after
seeing the opera " Florodoraf' Mark is above all a good and conscientious lad
and an industrious student. He is also a vrery voluminous reader and enjoys his
leisure moments by reading some good book. He is also one of our musicians.
Although he has not composed any music, like one of his classmates, he can play
on the piano quite nicely. It is uncertain what profession he intends to follow
during life, but whatever his lot, may he prosper, live long, and die happily.
4' Somewhat he lipsed, for his Wantownesse,
To make his English swete upon his tonge g
And in his harping, whan that he had songe,
His eyen twinkled in his heed aright,
As doon the sterres in the frosty night."
LAWRENCE GEORGE DHILY, who hails from East Allentown, entered college
in the fall of 1900, taking the classical course. He received his college preparation
in the public schools of East Allentown and at the Muhlenberg Academic De-
partment. He does not attend chapel exercises, although he is a good Sunday-
school worker in the Lutheran Church, In fact, Lawrence is the " whole show "
in the Sunday-school at East Allentown, being organist, assistant superintendent,
and a few other minor things, As to his politics, that is a secret, for he does not
believe that a congregation should know to what political party their pastor belongs.
He is a great friend of athletic sports Qbasket-ball exceptedb, and a promoter of the
same, a member of the Class foot-ball and base-ball teams. He would very much
like to make people believe that he is a hard worker, but in that he fails miserably.
Inactivity is very well acquainted with him. He does, however, take special
interest in the study of church history. Poor Lawrence is very bashful, he simply
trembles at the sight of a girl. It is said of him that, during the last Christmas
vacation, he attended a party at which there were quite a number of girls. When
they were about to play p- o-, he was taken ill very suddenly, and they
were obliged to remove him to his home. His delight is in saying " Is that so? "
He recites in a subdued undertone in a manner best expressed by saying that he
recites under his breath. Having passsed through eighteen summers, weighing one
hundred and thirty-five pounds and measuring five feet, two inches, he is fully
able to wear the robe of a Junior, and will no doubt make a good shepherd for his
flock, when once ordained as a minister. Q
" A manly man, to been an abbot able.
Ful many a dainty " hors " has he in stable."
This, kind friends, is FRANK BEISEL DENNIS, who lives at Nazareth, Pa.
He is twenty-two years of age, weighs one hundred and Hfteen pounds, and
measures five feet, sevenginches. Frank is " half and half, " neither blonde nor
brunette, somewhere in between, however. He spent his early boyhood in the
woods and tields. This fact is substantiated by his pastoral and sylvan nature.
Having graduated from the Nazareth High'School he entered the Muhlenberg
Academic Department, and in the fall of IQOO entered college, taking the classical
course, which is needed in the business Which he expects to follow in the " near "
future. He has always been alive with class spirit, and is ever ready to further
class interests, especially when," Freshman rules" are to be posted. Generally
Frank is very quiet, but when in the chemical laboratory his fellow class-mates
discover that there is also another power within him-" when things do not come
his way." He has always taken things easy, and treated the world as a bigjoke.
When he received the proof of his photograph he felt rather bellicostic, desiring
to wreak vengeance on the photographer. He was business manager of our
Freshman play C' Enlisted for the War "D, business manager of the last
college play C" An Editor's Love Storyuj, business manager of the Mzahlcfzberg,
and is business manager of this CIARLA. It is certainly a wonder that the " gods ' '
have given him so much success as a business manager, because helwalks along as
though he had the burden of married life on his shoulders. In short Cwe are sorry
to sayj, but Frank is too fuuereal. After leaving college, we are not sure what
he will do. No one can get a satisfactory explanation from him, but his friends
tell us that he Will marry immediately and control his father's farm, with " eine
schone fetty Maudf'
t' This pardoner has heer as yelow as wex,
But smothe they heng, as doth a strike of flex."
The man with the golden locks, and the greatest man of the Class now greets
you. This is the case where greatness seems to have been thrust upon the man,
for, in a physical sense, he stands at the head of his Class, being higher by
kejnhalc than a majority of his class-mates. MILTON M. DRY was born at Lyons,
Berks County, Pa., September 14th, 1878. He attended the public schools
at Lyons until the year 1891, when he moved to Mifflinville, Columbia County,
Pa. He was a student at the Bloomsburg State Normal School and Literary
Institute for some time and graduated from the Kutztown State Normal School
in the class of '98, and took a post-graduate course at the same institution after
graduation. He then taught in the public schools of Mifllinville, and while
teacher was monarch of all he surveyed. Asa schoolmaster he might have claimed
the distinction of Ichabod Crane-not of "Sleepy Hollow," but of Miftlinville.
After investigation the writer has discovered innumerable points of resemblance
between the two schoolmasters, but space permits me to mention only a few of the
most characteristic ones. In physique our class-mate is a fair substitute for
Ichabod 5 in fact, the two areicomplements ot each other. . Both had always the
best interests of their pupils in view, and administered justice with discrimination
rather than severity, both were beloved by their pupils, and admired by the
inhabitants of the community on account of the interest taken in religious work 3
both were conscientious men and firm believers in that golden maxim, "spare the
rod and spoil the-child." He entered Muhlenberg in the fall of IQOI as a Sopho-
more, and has proved to be a desirable addition to the Class. He is not very
loquacious Cexcept at times in "Deutsche Gesellschaftnj, but speaks English
fluently and possesses oratorical abilities. Mr. Dry is the son of a Lutheran
clergyman and expects to follow in the footsteps of his father. In after years he
may be heard of as an eminent divine.
" VVel loves he garleek, oynons, and eel: lekes,
And for to drinken strong wyn, reed as blood.
Thanne will he speke, and crye as if he were mad.
And whan that he wel drunken hadde the wyn,

" Say, fellows ! Wait till I tell you." This is LEE MARCUS ERDMAN,
" M-Chl' wahff. Hu, hu, fpse rlixiif' He lives in Allentown and has already
passed through twenty years ofjoy and sorrow, weighs two hundred pounds, more
or less, and measures five feet, eight inches. From his early youth, ever since
he has learned how to use his limbs, he has been a notorious street-runner, He
was graduated from the Allentown High School with honorable mention in the
Class of :goo and entered college in the fall, choosing the classical course. He is
a very accommodating young man to the opposite sex, as long as they are accom-
modating to him. In religion he lets everyone know that he is Reformed, and
in politics a staunch Democrat. He never attends chapel as he wishes to save his
voice for " grand opera." He is a good practical joker, and very witty. Unlike
" Bro." Sherer, he would like to comb his hair if he only could. Heisathorough
student, and should anyone having a sort of " vacuum " in his brain, hear his
criticisms of different colleges, profs, text-books, etc., they would be liable to think
him an Uideali' student. Lee is a well-read fellow for his age, He played the
leading role in the college play this year, " An Editor's Love Story." As David
Holmes, the literary critic of the Review, he evinced unusual histrionic ability.
He also played the part of Admiral Prynne like an old veteran, in the opera
" Liberty Bell," given by Allentown talent. When the question is put to him as
to what profession he will choose, he gets one of his epileptic, dramatic stage tits
and says, " Now don't worry, my dear Mr. So and So. Time will unfold the veil
of futurity," or some Shakespearean quotations. But no doubt the stage will
" With scalled browes blake, and piled herd g
Of his visage children are aferd."
Ecce homo ! ELLIS WILLIAM ERNEY was born at Lower Milford, Lehigh
County, Sunday, April oth, 1876. He attended the public schools in his home
district and graduated from the Keystone State Normal School in the Class of ,96.
After teaching for four consecutive terms in the public schools of Bucks County,
he took a post-graduate course at his Alma Mater, and later entered the Sopho-
more Class at Muhlenberg College in the fall of root. The conclusion has been
reached, after a careful investigation and by a rigid application of the rules of
logarithms and analytical geometry that he was born in the dark sign of the moon,
and it seems that the fates were against him at the time of his birth 5 hence he was
not such a beautiful baby boy as all the foregoing class-mates whose countenances
the reader has already beheld. But from childhood on he has ever been a very
persevering lad, determined to overcome obstacles and difficulties almost insurmount-
able. He is an admirer of beauty and a firm believer in that maxim of the opposite
sex : " If beauty has not come to you as an inheritance, buy it." Therefore, 'bya
vigorous application of butter-milk soap, gold dust, soapine, sapolio, benzine, and
borax his complexion has improved wonderfully, and taking him all in all, he is,
after all, a pretty good-looking fellow, even though his locks receive attention only
on special occasions. As a character delineator and story teller Na: B, O, has no
peer in the Class of '04, and may justly claim the distinction' as the Charles
Dickens of the Class, although his stories have at times a slightly different Havor.
He is also inclined occasionally to become poetical, for, when yet a Sophomore he
composed a popular poem entitled " The Gast Hausf, Our friend seldom
associates with the " fairf' and considers his pipe his best companion. He expects
to follow teaching as his chosen profession, and, as he is a good student and
faithful worker, may abundant success crown his efforts.
" So hote he lovede, that by nighertale
He sleep namore than doth a nightingale
Curteys he is, lowly, and servisable
And carf biforn his fader at the table."
" It is not exactly on account of self-conceit or self-appreciation of the noble
deeds accomplished that I, JOHN CALVIN FISHER, am persuaded to write this
autobiography. I was born at Heidelberg, Berks County, Pa., April Ioth, 1880.
Permit me to say that as a child I was exceptionally bright. When eight years old
my parents deemed me capable of admittance into the public schools of my native
place as an abecedarian, where I made wonderful progress, mastering the whole
alphabet in two short years. Later I attended the Bernville High School, where
I received some instruction in the three R's, and graduated from the Kutztown
State Normal School in the class of 'oo. In the fall of Igor I entered Muhlenberg
College as a Sophomore. Since I entered college my ideas have been somewhat
broadened, and I began to realize that true manhood consists not only of spiritual,
intellectual, and physical development, but also in social improvement. In other
words, I seemed to have some kind of a vision arousing my mind with these
words: "Young man, study human nature." Even in Allentown, during my
first year in college, I had to encounter many difficulties to find a fair specimen
for my study and social development. As I was a stranger in town many took me
not in, and, unhappily, the epithet of 'night owl ' has been thrust upon me, as I
secure social edification during the night and sleep during the day. I will refrain
from speaking of my future plans and the wonders I wish to perform 5 but may it
suilice to say that the ministry will be my profession for life, and I wish to ad-
monish the rising generation to prepare themselves for the deep and sound
theological precepts that I wish to expound. "

A youth of taciturnity and sobriety now greets you, kind reader. If silence
were golden this lad would be one of the richest of our Class. His name is HANS
SAMUEL GARDNER, and he is staying with his grandfather, Rev. Gardner, a
Lutheran clergyman of the City of Allentown. He was born August 23d, 1885,
at Doylestown, Pa. At the age of Eve years he was admittedinto the kinder-
garten at Newark, New Jersey, and later attended the public schools of the same
place until the year 1893, when he entered the public schools of Quakertown, Pa.
In 1898 he was enrolled as a student in the Academic Department of this Insti-
tution and entered the College Department in the fall of 1900 as a Freshman.
Hans is the baby, or the youngest member, of our Class. College Freshmen,,even
at a mature age, always need a great deal of care and attention. The condensed
milk used by the other members ofthe Class soon proved to be too strong for the baby
classmate. The question was, how can we prepare milk which will not be rejected
by his constitution? This was a very perplexing question at first, but was soon
solved logically by H. Ritter, mathematically by Keller, scientifically by Sultzbach,
experimentally by Wuchter, socially and politically by Burger, and musically by
Keboch. All reached the same conclusion that goat's milk Igwgh pure was the
only thing fitted for his constitution. Hans is quite skilled as an artist, and, by
his drawings appearing in this volume, has greatly enhanced the beauty ofthe '04
CIARLA. He is undecided as to what vocation in life he intends to pursue 5 but,
whatever his lot in life may be, he has the best wishes of his classmates. May his
whole life be one of peace and happiness.
" Unto his ordre he is a noble post.
Ful wel biloved and faniulier is he
With frankeleyns over-al in his contree,
And also with worthy wonimen of the town."
Dear reader, the person whose picture now appears is i CHARLES ALVIN
HAINES 3 " Peanut " or " Kid " as he is commonly known about the halls, and
" Chic " as he is called by his Scranton friends. In fact, everybody that sees him
has a different name for him. He is the son of a prominent Republican who lives
at Slatington, Pa. He has passed through but nineteen years of trial. He pre-
pared for college at the Muhlenberg Academic Department, He was personal
editor of the flhaklefzberg, and played a prominent part in K' Enlisted for the War "
as "' Lieut. Col. Boxer." He is not only noted for his attractive powers, but also
for his true college spirit. Attends chapel regularly CPD and is terribly missed
when absent. Wlien he sends his expense account for the month to his father,
it fairly makes him humpshouldered to look it over. Although he wishes Charles
to have a liberal education he does not wish to buy Allentown. By means of ia
dream he has told a few of his friends the reason for a certain change, that has
taken place, During his Freshman and Sophomore years, he lodged at college,
but during his junior year he went home every evening, returning the next morn-
ing on the train that stops both at Slatington and at Laurys, and usually arriving
late for his first recitation, the reason being of course that the train was late. After
leaving Muhlenberg he 'will take the mechanical engineering course at Cornell,
and, after completing his course, will continue his work at Laurys, not because
he thinks they need a mechanical engineer very badly, but on account of the
strong attraction the place has for him, especially when the Allentown College for
Women is not in session.
" Ful big he is of braun, and eek of bones 3
That provee wel, for over-al ther he cam,
At wrastling he Wolde have alwey the ram."
Another big man now claims the attention ofthe reader. With one exception
he is the tallest one in the Class, and in a physical sense easily occupies second
place. This man, Whose likeness you now have the pleasure to behold, is EUGENE
MICHAEL HANDWERK, who lives in Allentown, Pa. He was born September 5th,
1882, at Germansville, Pa., where he attended the public schools, and prepared
for teaching some time later, After teaching one term in Heidelberg Township,
Lehigh County, Pa., he prepared for college at the Keystone State Normal School
and entered the Sophomore Class at Muhlenberg College in the fall of 1901. He
is an intimate friend of the other Kutztoxvn men of our Class, and the tie of
friendship existing among these members of the Class could not easily be severed.
Our classmate is an admirer of nature and of fine art. He finds songs in trees,
music in stones, and beauty in everything. The passing clouds, the gentle
whispering breeze, the sparkling fountains and crystal lakes, the gurgling brooks
and murmuring waterfalls, all appeal to him as a thing ofbeauty and a joy forever.
Art has the advantage of nature in so far as it introduces a human element, and
is undoubtedly one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness.
Eugene is so fond of gazing upon the world's fine paintings that he generally
carries in his pocket a pamphlet of the " W'orld's Famous Paintings in Miniature. "
He is also quite Well knovvn as a story-teller, but his fame in this phase of life is
eclipsed by his chum's unparalleled career in this respect. It is not certain yet
what profession he will follow, but will likely be knovvn in later years as a German
professor in some institution of learning, and no doubt success is in store for him.
" Novvher so bisy a man as he ther is,
And yet he seems bisier than he is."
MARTIN CLEMENT HOFFMAN, whose beaming countenance' is here pictured,
lives at Neffs, Pa. He is twenty-four years of age, weighs one hundred and fifty
pounds, and measures five feet eight inches. A No. 8 hat embraces his cranium,
and a No. 7 dancing slipper is his greatest desire. He attended the public schools
at Hoifmans, Pa., Schnecksville, Pa., and the West Chester State Normal School.
Entered college in the fall of 1900, taking the classical course. While a student
at college, much of his time is consumed in work not prescribed in his course.
His hair are dark, his eyes black, and he is a staunch Reformed and Republican.
Now Martin does not believe in college athletics, "They are altogether un-
necessary," as he says. In fact he is too jiigerg a snail is an express train to him.
He enters a recitation room as though the entry was paved with eggs, and sits
down in his chair as if there was a nest of kittens underneath, being most always
late. But in spite of all this he often Ends his way to chapel, of course in his
same usual manner. Martin is very rough on neighbors, he induced the man
living next door to him to stop playing the cornet by buying an automatic piano,
and kept it going day and night until his neighbor offered to quit if he would.
He is a great friend of sleep, has the best record at college, and open for compe-
tition at all times. W'e often wondered why a man of his age never thought
seriously of marriage, but he says, " I have, that's the very reason Why I'ni still
singlef' The future will ind him a minister at some Wayside church. 'We have
the best Wishes for him to such ends,
" A lovyer and a lusty bachelor,
With locks curlle, as if they were leyd in presse,
Of twenty yeer of age he is, I gessefl
Here is a man Whose home is in the northeastern part of our State, and near
that picturesque and historic Valley of Wyoming which was once the scene of one
of the bloodiest massacres in history, and a place which has been made immortal
by Campbells "Gertrude of Wyoming." This man with curly locks and a sober
face is WALTER JESSE HUNTSINGER, born july r4th, 1879, at Dushore, Pa. He
attended the public schools for some time, and was a student at the Susquehanna
Collegiate Institute during the year 1893. He clerked in a general store for some
time and graduated from the Dushore High School in 1899. After preparing for
college in the Academic Department, he entered Muhlenberg in the fall of Igoo.
Walter is a diligent student, but is apt to consider all other affairs as secondary
when there is cz woman in the case. Like the author of the popular novel,
" When Knighthood Was in Flower," he believes that " a young girl thoroughly
in love is the most beautiful thing on earth." He is convinced that the best
company a man can keep is woman, since it tends to ennoble his mind with better
thoughts, puriies his heart with purer motives, and makes him as gentle as a

also appears in this volume. Our friend is interested in missionary work, as he is
president of the Missionary Society, connected with Muhlenberg College. As he
has the ministry in View this Work will prove to be beneficial and helpful to him
during life.' Walter is a lover of good reading and spends a great deal of time in
that kind of recreation. He expects to be a minister, and will undoubtedly be a
good shepherd of his flock. May the World become better and may heaven itself
be the richer through his labors.

The reader is now granted the rare opportunity of beholding the likeness of
the ladies' man of our Class. At the age of sixteen the darts of Venus accidentally
penetrated his breast, inflicting such severe wounds that have left very noticeable
effects and lasting impressions. WILLIAM HENRY KEBOCH, the admirer of the
fair, was born at Berrysburg, Dauphin County, Pa., June Ist, 1880. According
to traditions, competent judges pronounced him as the most beautiful babe of the
age-either male or female. When yet a small boy he was sent to the public
schools of his native town, where he soon displayed his wonderful faculties of
perception and observation. For this reason it Was deemed vvise to continue his
education, and he was sent to the High School at Elizabethville, and also
graduated from the Berrysburg Seminary, He prepared for college in the
Academic Department during the year 1899, and entered Muhlenberg in the fall
of rgoo. Willie is always a very busy fellow, even if he is only doing- something
of such a nature as making regular convex polyhedrons-the kindergarten phase
of life during the period covered by Sophomore geometry. He is a lover of
music, and plays more musical instruments than any other student in college.
The piano, clarinet, saxophone, and bassoon are some of the musical instruments
that he plays. He belongs to several bands, and during the present school year
has been a member of the Pioneer Band of Allentown, so it must be accorded that
he is a musician of some ability. Our friend spends much time in transposing
and composing music. During Sophomore year he composed his famous medley
overture, entitled " Greater Muhlenberg," which will likely make its appearance
before the new buildings are erected, for it has already been in the press about
eighteen months. The ministry will likely be his calling. May his efforts be
crowned with success.
" An housholdere, and that a greet was he g

This is "Stump " or, in more classical terms, JOHN FRANKLIN KELLER, a
character renowned far and Wide for humor, pleasantry, vexatiousness, and
trickery. According to tradition he was born at Alburtis, August 15th, 1877.
He was educated in the public schools of his native town, and finally was
graduated from the Kutztown State Normal School with the class of ,95. Mr.
Keller also acquired a good reputation as a pedagogue. For ive years he was
engaged in imparting his knowledge to others. This probably clarifies the various
vague opinions heretofore held to explain why he should be so calm and attentive
during recitations, and at other times so boisterous and precocious. Especially
is this true in German recitations gi he is one of the fevv that have the courage to
sit perfectly quiet for the Whole period, In appearance he is comical, less famous
for beauty than for ebibefzs, and of rather superfluous length. " Bandyf' another
praenomen, spends a great deal of time in reading books which treat of " Country
Sales, and How to Conduct Them." It is said that he is the best clerk in his
County. In confession he is strictly Lutheran, and when he goes to church he is
required to Walk about one mile. He is a great base-ball enthusiast, and played
catcher and rightfield on the college nine. He manifests an uncommon interest
in politics, and if Alburtis does not turn out a large majority for the Democratic
party it's not his fault. He never in his life enjoyed a play as much as he did last
year's Freshman play, " Messmatesf' Ask him Why. His college life has
already revealed a very strong inclination toward a particular profession. To
quote the young man, he said, " I like to teach and especially would I like to
teach laboratory chemistry, if I were Well enough prepared for it."
" His hosen are of fyn scarlet reed.

'Twas in April, 1885. Havoc seemed to reign upon earth. Darkness closed
upon the country and upon the town, but it was no night for sleep. Heralds
transmitted the message from hand to hand, till village repeated it to village g the
sea to the backwoods, the plains to the highlands, and it was never suffered to
drop till it had been borne North and South and East and West throughout all
Cementon. And the cause of it all was the birth of WILLIAM RENASTUS
KLECKNER. The people have not yet recovered from the shock 5 neither have we.
He was educated in the local public schools, and was graduated from the Hoken-
dauqua High School in the class of ,QQ 5 then prepared for college at the Muhlen-
berg Academy. He weighs one hundred and ,seven-three pounds, and measures
five feet nine inches from one extremity to another. Wllen he readsa dissertation
it reminds one ofa phonograph, which, when wound up, never stops until it is
run down. He has a very nice reputation as an athlete, having played on the
college foot-ball team for two seasons. He has new uses for everything he lays
hands on g last season he used a cushion as a pad for his foot-ball suit. He is of
such a nature that he thinks a man ought to turn over a new leaf on New Year's
Day, just to do something to assure himself that he isn't growing cynical and
indifferent to the good old customs. He is a thorough student, and his abilities
are marked in every department of college work. He is well read, but of all that
he can do, he can not, for the life of him, remember a joke. In religion he is a
staunch Lutheran 3 in politics he is a Quayite. During the few years of his contact
with the outer world he has become so enamored with its beauties, that he often
wanders through the woods and studies Nature. His future vocation is undecided.

ENOCH GEORGE KUNICLE, an ambitious lad of twenty-two summers, and the
son of a Lutheran clergyman, now attracts your attention. Ambition was carried
to an extreme in the life of Alexander the Great, for it is said that after con-
quering the whole world, he wept because there were no more worlds to conquer.
George's ambition is, however, not leading him in the same path. Though a
well-informed student he does not fear that he will reach that pinnacle of wisdom
where it is necessary to sit down and mourn because there is no more knowledge
to gain g and it is well that such is the case, for otherwise he might have a long
period of mourning if he had inherited the characteristics of his autediluvian
biblical ancestor. He was born in Bethlehem, Pa., December 23d, 1880-an
anticipated Christmas present. Since then he has resided at various places, but
his present home is at Mauch Chunk, Pa. He received his preparatory training
at the East Stroudsburg and the Millersville State Normal Schools, graduating
from the latter institution in the class of IQQ. For two consecutive terms he was
busily engaged measuring out hickory-oil in the public schools of Northampton
County, and in the fall of 1901 entered the Sophomore Class in Muhlenberg
College. Opinions will differ whether Julius Caesar was greater as a statesman or
as a general. Likewise, it would be impossible to state at present in what phase
of life our friend excels, or in what way he has achieved greatness. According
to his own statement his good qualities have come to him by inheritance, but
concerning the other-they may have been thrust upon him. Be that as it may
we can say of him what was said of young Hamlet of old : " Take him all in all
you will not find his likeness." George expects to be a pedagogue and may take
a post-graduate course in a prominent university. '
" Discreet he is, and of great reverence.
. He seems swich, his words are so wyse."
PETER WEISER LEISENRING, it is rumored, first saw the light of day March
26th, 1884, since which time he has been a constant source of worry to his 1110tl'161'.
Research has brought to light the fact that Peter was a remarkably pretty and
precocious child, and at an early age showed unmistakable signs of the profound
wit and wisdom for which he is notorious at present. Peter received his early
education in the public schools of Allentown, and was graduated from the High
School with the class of rgoo. Determined to pursue his classical studies to a
further extent, he gained admission within the portals of Muhlenberg. As " Mattie
Trueworthf' in " Enlisted for the War,', he originated the " Kangaroo" walk,
which was further developed in the " Cheerful Liarn as " Majorie," and in " An
Editor's Love Story" as " Harriet Leicester." His friends are greatly excited
about his future, because of the number of positions he has held thus far. At
present he is a contributor to the fff07'7Zi7Zg' Call, but in that he is no success.
While he knows six languages, and all the facts about the Arctic regions, and the
history of dancing from the days of Old Adam down to those of Old Nick, he can't
write up a satisfactory account of an Iceman's Ball. He will never becomea book-
keeper, although he can prove that 2 and 2 makes 4 by trigonometry and geometry.
He knows more about the history of banking than a president, and more about
political economy than a board of directors, but he can't learn the difference
between a " fiver, " that the Government turns out and one that is run off on a
hand press. He will not become a teacher, because he learned so much about the
best way of teaching boys that he would be liable to tell his superiors right on the
jump that they are doing it all wrong. But the last you will hear of him is when
he writes articles on " Why Young Men Fail," and will make a grand success of
it because failing is the subject on which he is practical.

The only man of the Class of 'o4 whom the young damsels of Allentown do
not in the least molest, now greets you. This may seem very strange, indeed, at
first thought, and the reader may be struck with wonder and amazement that such
a character as a college student should actually inhabit a city like Allentown.
But the reader's mind will undoubtedly be restored to its equilibrium after due
deliberation, when informed that there are at least two very valid reasons for the
prevailing conditions of indifference on the part of the fair maidens of this vicinity
in general, namely, one wife and one child. LAWRENCE RENNINGER MILLER,
the avowed enemy of celibacy, was born at Niantic, Montgomery County, Pa.,
December 6th, 1876. For some time he attended the public schools of the district
in which he lived. Later in life he was a student at the Perkiomen Seminary, at
Pennsburg, Pa., and prepared for college. He entered Muhlenberg College in the
fall of Igoo. Wlieri yet quite young he took unto himself a wife, as he is a firm
believer in that scriptural proverb : " Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing."
By observing Mr. Miller's countenance very closely and attentively a person will
readily- discover that he is not a single man, for there is present that indescribable
something which is only found on the countenance of a married man. He lives
in Allentown, where he was the proprietor of a students' boarding house for
several years g hence he is sometimes called the " Boarding-house Miller" if they
wish to distinguish him from other students having the same name. The ministry
will be his chosen calling for life. He will enter the Theological Seminary after
graduating from this Institution. A

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 FRANCIS EDWARD
REICHARD was born. He was born at Cedarville, in the vicinity of " Greater
Muhlenberg," October I7lIl1, I872. He was raised and educated in Lower
Macungie Township, at a place known as Ritter's School. Was graduated from
the Keystone State Normal School at Kutztown with the class of '97. Taught
school in ,QS-'90 near Albnrtis, '97-'98 at Siesholtiville, Berks County, and '98-'99
near Wescoesville. During our Freshman year he became popular on account of
carrying our turkey safely through the enemies' lines into Dr. Wackernagel's
room. During the past summer he canvassed scenic pictures, which, as he asserts,
he can prove logically, geometrically, trigononietrically, theoretically, and
practically to be the best on the market. He never cares for society, and this, in
connection with his state of celibacy, gives him ample time for his studies. Being
an earnest and enthusiastic advocate of athletics, he played on the College Foot-
ball Team with satisfaction. He is also a member of the junior " Haasundpeffern
Club which meets every rainy Monday afternoon. He is five feet eight and one-
half inches tall in heelless shoes and weighs one hundred and sixty-two pounds.
A No.'7M " derby " barely covers his head, and No. 8 shoes hold on tightly to
his feet. On his uncle's farm is a vineyard in which he used to pick grapes when
but a mere boy, and it was while working there that he became inspired, and
began to show a strong desire for Nafz41'aZ Theology. He is now preparing himself
for the ministry.

Muhlenberg College has never been a co-educational institution, but the Class
of ,O4 is fortunate enough to have among her ranks, not a real woman, but a
feminate man. The general opinion prevails that our friend made a deplorable
mistake when he entered this Institution, as the Allentown College for Women
would be a far more suitable place for him. After these brief introductory
remarks the reader is undoubtedly very anxious to learn the name of this remarks
able youth. Hold your peace and keep as still as a mouse, for his name is STILLE
AGNEW RENTZHEIMER, from Hellertovvn, Pa. This fair creature was born
August 16th, 1883, at Friedensville, Pa., but moved to Hellertovvn some time
later, Where he attended the public schools. He also attended the Lehigh Pre-
paratory School, and as he was a very precocious child had soon mastered allrthat
could be obtained at that place. Therefore, in order to become still better ac-
quainted with vvisdom's Ways, he entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1900 as a
Freshman. As he is a youth of a very delicate nature, he did not participate
to a great extent in any class scraps during Freshman and Sophomore years 3 but
in some respects Was a very prominent Hgure at the Sophomore banquet at Phila-
delphia. On that occasion he took a memorable stand by a Window, and also
responded to a toast, having for his subject " The Ladies." Our classmate is a
scientific student, or at least belongs to that department. But the writer would
not venture to say whether he would be able to dissect one of the bedbugs occa-
sionally found in room No. So. Stille expects to become a Doctor of Medicine
and intends to follow this profession during life. .

Whether GEORGE HEILIG RHODES 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 dourished in the suburbs of Gouldsboro, Wayne County, Pa. The
public schools of his native district claimed the attention of his youthful mind until
some of his " freundschaftn persuaded him to take a course in the Scranton
Business College thence the reason for the above contentionj, Since the fall of
19oo he attends Muhlenberg. As " Hiram," in "Enlisted for the War," he dis-
played an unusual witty disposition, so uncommon to a man "dead in love."
We have been asked so often why the Class Quartet, which did so much practicing,
did not appear at our Freshman play, and we ta-ke the opportunity here to explain.
Our friend George had been selected to sing first bass, but, on account of his being
unable to " sing softly," it " went to pieces? Physically he Weighs one hundred
and thirty pounds, is five feet seven and one-half inches in height, and claims to
be strong. He is a lover of good musical and theatrical entertainments, all of
which ind him an appreciative auditor and spectator. In addition to his regular
college work, he is kept very busy as N. Ritteris private secretary. We are glad
to refer to the fact that he has already made use of his talents for practical pur-
poses, as a business man. QRhodes and Smith 5 the modern boarding house.

our Sophomore year, simply because his knowledge of botany was not so extensive
as he wished it to be, and therefore deprived him of many botanical terms of
endearment with which to address Miss Flower in the many letters which she
receives from his pen. The ministry will be his life's work. f

Booker T. Wasliixmgton, the Moses of the Colored Race, was born way down
south in an old log cabin, on an old plantation, in Virginia g but I, I-IORACE
RITTER, was born in an old log house at Breinigsville, Lehigh' County, Pa.
Wasliingtoii does not know the exact date of his birth, but is certain according to
his own statements that he was born somewhere at some time. According to
tradition I was born on a very warm day-Monday, August Ioth, 1874, at 4.30
in the morning. Considering the circumstances of my birth I am a good-looking
fellow, and would undoubtedly be still more handsome if the thatched roof of the
log house had not admitted so many rays of sunlight giving my complexion a
sunburnt hue. At an early age I was sent to the public school, Where I made
wonderful progress, especially in composition workr. After completing my work
in the common schools of my native town, I was enrolled as a student at the Kutz-
town State Normal School, and graduated at that institution in the class of '95.
For six years I was a schoolmaster, and many' facts ofinterest might he mentioned
in connection with my experience as a teacher 5 but, in order to give space for some
more important phases of life, sufhce it to say that I never failed to exert my
authority and acted on the principle of " rule or ruinf' I am the Jonathan Swift,
or the great satirist of the Class, and consider it a pleasure when I get a chance
of ridiculing what I regard as inconsistency and intolerence in any form. I am
not only an essayist but also an orator of more than ordinary ability, and take a
deep interest in literary work. The ministry will claim me as a follower.
" Of his diete niesurable is he,
For it is of no superlluitee,
But of greet norissing and digestible,
His studie is but litel on the Bible."
Here behold him as he is ! His name is NORMAN YERGEY RI'fTER. He
was born twenty years ,ago at Boyertown, Berks County, in a Dutch community,
near a big white stone which bears an Indian's name in red letters, and it is to
that stone that he lays the blame for not knowing more German. His early
education was received in the small district school, but he soon made such inde-
scribable progress that he outgrew the old school and schoolmaster, and, in order
to satiate his'son's inordinate desire for education, his father moved to Pottstown,
where Norman was sent to the public schools and was graduated from the High
School with the class of igoo. His altitude is five feet six inches and his weight
one hundred and hfty pounds. His father isa jeweler, and it seems as though
Norman had inherited some of the " Do you want to buy a pair of socks " nature.
This gentleman is not as sober and sedate as he looks, but was only in such a
sanctimonious mood when his photograph was taken. He loves to play tricks on
others, especially on Huntsinger 5 for example, putting water instead of oil in his
lamp. But he is unobtrusive and imperturbable. His desire for Allentown girls
is on the decrease ever since he met his so-called " Dream." Wlieii at home he
would make people believe that he was very pious 3 he plays second violin in the
Sunday-school orchestra, and calls on no girl but his cousin 5 but when at college
he boasts of the fact that his "girl " is teaching in the very room in .which he
attended school when a mere boy. He played center on our Freshman Foot-ball
Team for one game, but never after that could you get him to play. We wonder
why. His appearance as "Gen, Grant," in "Enlisted for the War," was very
pleasing. He intends to become a clergyman, but may become a physicist or

,Nmzc Vide ! GEORGE WILLIAM SHERER, " the man with the dreamy eyes,"
was born the 6th day of December, 1882. in the City of Allentown. He received
his preparatory education in the public schools of this city and was graduated from
the High School with the class of IQOO, then entered Muhlenberg in the fall of
the same year. His features are very characteristic 5 We End both extremes pro-
truding beyond the ordinary, his head being covered with a No. 7 hat and his
" pedes " with No. 8 shoes, as he himself said, He is an ardent promoter of
athletics, having played on the Class Foot-ball Team for two years, and with the
" regulars" during the season of 1902. He is also fond of playing chess and
pool, for which he holds the championship at college. His reputation as literary
editor of the flluhfcfzberg has won for him the title of " book worm " of our Class.
He has his own views on all subjects, text-books, and professors notwithstanding,
and takes pains to let everybody realize this. When he laughs at a joke he laughs
last, and having gathered all the enjoyment in one effort, he sends it forth in
voluminous ho l ho'sI In regard to his ability as a disturbing element-well,
that speaks for itself. He is very methodical and Methodistical, and a regular
absentee from chapel. His mind is quick and active, and he is a very clever sort
ofa student. He spends his vacations in his father's grocery store, which is sub'
stantiated by the fact that this hungry Willie always seems to have an inex-
haustible larder right by him, or on his person. Once upon a time, while calling
upon a young lady, as the clock struck eleven, he looked at his watch and said,
" Is that clock right ? One of us must be off !" And through a misunderstanding
she answered, " I'm sorry you have to gof' George's life work is undecided.

Every Class, with the exception of the Sophomore, which is not Worthy of
one, numbers among its ranks a representative of the illustrious family of Smiths.
Maxatavvney, a village of Berks County, situated along the famous Kutztovvn
trolley line, is fortunate in being the home of this distinguished personage,
CHARLES ALFRED SMITH. His early education was received in the schools of his
nativevillage, and later he Was enrolled as a student of the Kutztown State
Normal School, where he received his preparatory training. He entered Muhlen-
berg iu the fall of 1899 as a member of the Class of 'o3. On account of Weakness
of the eyes he was compelled to relinquish his studies during the school year of
IQOI-1-QO2, but became a member of our Class last fall. His hobby is mathe-
matics, and analytics and calculus have no obstacles which he can not surmount,
Charley is quite an athlete, and he will no doubt make many star plays in the
coming base-ball game between the ministers' and pagans' sections of the
"Deutsche Gesellschaftenf' He is very fond of tennis and has become quite an
expert in that game. He also enjoys a game of hearts, except when the " Mark
Zadyt' comes his way. He has become noted for his "sWiping" of different
signs and posters, which he uses to decorate the Walls of his room. He also be-
lieves in giving proper attention to the social side of college life and often listens
to practical discourses on this line by Damgf, a man of wide experience. Actresses
claim a great deal of his attention, and he is generally influenced in his opinions
by the man who played the part of " Admiral Prynne " in the " Liberty Bell."
What profession he will follow is uncertain, but he says that he may strive to
become a professor in a co-educational school. As he is dauntless, studious, and
ambitious, success will no doubt crown his efforts in whatever he undertakes.

Behold the man ! Who is this one with a smiling countenance and a dignified
look? Hold your peace, kind reader, and permit us to introduce to you in a formal
manner DANIEL ISAIAH SULTZBACH, from Elizabethville, Pa. Aurora, the
goddess of dawn, gazed at him for the first time on the morning of October 24th,
1879. He received his early education in the public schools of his native town,
and graduated from the Elizabethville High School in ISQ8. In 1899 he com-
pleted a course in bookkeeping and stenography. After preparing for college in
the Academic Department, he entered Muhlenberg in the fall of IQOO as a Fresh-
man. It would have been a very difficult task for an ordinary person to do justice
to the man under consideration in a brief character sketch. Therefore, in order
that his more prominent characteristics might not be overlooked, the CIARLA
Staff was fortunate enough to secure the valuable services of a noted phrenologist
who imparted the following information while carefully examining each and every
bump on our friend's head : " It is wonderful ! Can I believe my senses ! This
cranium is the dwelling place of a brilliant mind. It must certainly be a pleasure
for both your classmates and teachers' to listen while you pour forth the radiance
of your brilliant intellect. You have a prominent athletic bump which indicates
that you would make a foot-ball player if you were not quite so cautious, and you
will win a physical culture prize some day if you only persevere. There is some
bump- on the top of your head that is very peculiar, and in all my vast experience
have never found anything like it ,ibut after careful examination I have reached
the conclusion that it is only a blzgjt. In conclusion let me not fail to inform you
that you are studious and industrious. The ministry will claim your services.

One score and three years ago the sixth of September became a red letter day
in thehistory of the village of Hobbie. It was caused by the birth of a baby boy
whose mature countenance the reader has the pleasure of beholding. Much was
the concern of all the populace regarding the name this fair child was to bear.
After due consideration he received the name of MARTIN JACOB SWANK. As has
been the case with most great men, the birthplace of Martin is little known to the
outside world. Hobbie, a village of Luzerne County, is situated in the heart of a
most picturesque and romantic section. His brilliant mind soon absorbed all the
knowledge which the village schools could afford, so the Bloomsburg State Normal
School was the next source from which he drew his intellectual knowledge. After
receiving his sheepskin in the summer of 1897, he wielded the rod in the schools
of his native county for three consecutive years, Teaching, however, he realized
did not afford the opportunity of revealing his natural talents, so he began the
study of law. For some unknown reason he discontinued the study of law and
entered the Sophomore Class of Muhlenberg in the fall of IQOI, intending to study
for the ministry. VVl1ether or not this will become his life work remains to be
seen. He is a great reader, and his literary ability is universally recognized. His
favorite author is Max O'Rell, and if you have not read " Her Royal Highness,
Woman, and His Majesty, Cupid," your impression upon this young man will be
most unfavorable. While he is a great admirer ofthe fair of his native place, he
believes with Holmes that city beauty is something finer in certain respects than
that raised 05 the pavement, so one of our trolley lines receives a great many of
his nickels. He is quite a basket-ball player, proficient in tennis, and a profound

Last but not least We present to you, dear reader, the man to whom justly
belongs the epithet as the funny man of our Class. ARTHUR LECLERCQ
WUCHTER, from Gilberts, Monroe County, Pa., comes from that part of the State
Where honey and buckwheat are considered as luxuries. He was born at Lynn-
ville, Lehigh County, Pa., March 13th, 1882, and spent the greater part of his
childhood in fishing and reading fairy tales. He attended the public schools at
Summit Hill and Weissport and graduated from the Fairview Academy, at Brod-
headsville, This lad of twenty-one summers and twenty-two sleighrides Qas he
took an additional one when a " Freshy "D entered Muhlenberg during the fall of
1901, as he was determined to become somebody extraordinary in the world.
During his first year at college many of the students enjoyed a great deal of fun
at his expense, as they thought our classmate was somewhat like the grass that
grows around a stump. He can fairly imitate any creature from a bandy rooster
to a roaring lion, and has obtained proficiency in this science by frequently exer-
cising his vocal organs during recitations in classroom No. 7, He is the son of a
clergyman, a noted linguist. In the latter respects he is undoubtedly a chip of
the old block, and some inborn characteristics seem to have descended from father
to son, as his mind readily grasps any language with little effort. He is especially
gifted in German, and, when a Sophomore, was a would-be committee of one who
quizzed the other Sopliomores during a German examination about the normal
inverted, and transposed orders of German sentences. Arthur is also a musician
of marked ability, and he expects to follow music after graduation.

Professor of Biology.
John Lear, A. NI., IVI. D.
N his father's side Dr. Lear is descended from a German family that came
from Bucks County. One of the Lears served as Attorney General of the
State of Pennsylvania. On the maternal side he is descended from the
Sandt family, which is well known in this section of the State. He was born
near Easton in 1859, and obtained his preliminary education in the common
schools, at Trach's Academy Qnow Easton Academyj, and at the State Normal
School at Kutztown. He entered Lafayette College in the spring of I88O, and
was graduated with the degree of A. B. from that institution in 1884, and re-
ceived the degree of A. M. from the same institution three years later. Crises
are reached by young men in their college course. The master minds of
philosophy sometimes only startle, but may shatter the preconceived notions of
life and thought, Fortunately intellectual giants like Dr. Francis March,
professor of comparative philology and philosophy, and Rev. Dr. Porter, professor
of biology and geology, at whose feet Dr. Lear received instruction, tower above
materialistic philosophy and harmonize the revealed truths of religion and science.
Theology, however, lost a novice and biology gained a devotee.
Accordingly, in 1887, he entered the medical department of the University
of Pennsylvania, and in 1889 he graduated with the degree of M. D. from that
institution. During this course, special attention was given to the biological
sciences, with the purpose in view of teaching advanced biology. At this time
Drs. Leidy, Agnew, Pepper, Penrose, and others dominated the University spirit.
All possessed the elements that make inen great and honored by their own
countrymen and the worldf Since, this coterie of the " nation's builders" rest
in the great Temple of Silence.
Dr. Lear was a teacher in the public schools during the years 1876 to 1880,
he was professor of natural science in Central University of Pella, Iowa, during
1884 to 1886, and taught natural science during the following year at Trach's
Academy, now Easton Academy. In 1899 he was elected instructor in biology at
Muhlenberg, and took up the course in " Comparative Anatomy of Vertebrates."
In 19oo he was one of the lecturers in the spring course. In the spring of 1902,
on the resignation of Dr. Dowell, professor of natural sciences, he temporarily
took up part of his work, when, in the following June the Board of Trustees
wisely elected him professor of biology. He is a member of the Phi Gamma
After graduating from the medical college he located at Allentown, Where he
has been actively engaged in professional Work and in matters of medical organi-
zation. He is an ex-president of the Allentown City Medical Association, has
served at different times as president and as treasurer of the Medical Society of
Lehigh County, is a member of the Medical Society of the State of Pennsylvania,
a member of the American Medical Association, and has served as Health Oflicero f
the City of Allentown. Since he left college he has devoted much time to general
scientific as well as to medical study, and many of his papers, such as " Irrational
Medicine," "Hodgkin,s Diseasef, "The Malaria Germ as 'a Spore," QGre-
gorendaj, "The Development of the Tape-Worni," have been received with
special attention in the County Medical Society.
Dr. Lear entered the College as an experienced and successful teacher, an
enthusiastic student and educator, and by his thorough work in the classroom,
and by his manly Christian bearing, deserves the high esteem in which he is held
by the students and others with Whom he comes in contact. Muhlenberg has
certainly been fortunate in securing Dr. Lear as a member of her faculty, and it
is certainly the earnest Wish of all her loyal sons that "Greater Muhlenberg"
may for many years have the services of this eminent and scholarly educator.
Professor of Natural and Applied Sciences.
W. R. Whitehorne, A. IVI., Ph. D.
Q25 Q' W9
ROF. WHITEHORNE was born at St. Andrews, jamaica, W. I., in 1873.
This was not destined, however, to be the place where he should be reared,
for in 1877 he left Jamaica, and, until 1884, St. John, New Brunswick, was
the place of his abode. Somerville, Mass., was the next place in which he spent
his youthful days, and where he received most of his preparatory education,
graduating from the excellent High School of that place.
He entered Tufts College in 1891, and while there he earned enough to pay
his college expenses by working during his spare time, tutoring, and teaching night
school. During his undergraduate four years he succeeded in taking as many
courses as are usually covered in live. He was a member of the Delta Tau Delta
Fraternity. XVhile Prof. Whitel1orne's studies were chiefly scientific and mathe-
matical, he took a liberal course, including Latin, Greek, French, German, and
English. After taking his A. B , in 1895, he was offered what was practically a
fellowship, which enabled him to take his A. M. in chemistry in 1896. The
following year he was made assistant instructor in organic chemistry and assaying,
spending all his spare time in research work in chemistry.
The year following he taught assaying and qualitative analysis. He also
devoted one year to electrical studies and taught in the college laboratory. He
worked one year with the Dominion Iron and Steel Company, the United Gas 8:
Coke Co., and the Boston SL Maine Railroad, In 1900 and IQOI he studied at
Tufts University for his degree of Ph. D. At the same time he taughtin assaying
and mechanical drawing. In addition to that he was instructor in mathematics in
the Bromfield-Pearson High School, an affiliated institution. In the following
year he was one of the professors at the University School of Providence, R. I.
During his 'stay at Tufts he had charge of the laboratory work. He is also a skilled
glass blower, and can make or repair most chemical or physical apparatus. He is
a member of the American Society for the advancement of Science.
Although the Scientiic course has not been established at Muhlenberg for
many years, its proficiency is already recognized by all the leading universities.
Its professors have always been men whose scholarly attainments have been
recognized by all prominent scientists, and with Dr. Vllhitehorne as a member of
her faculty Muhlenberg's prestige will continue to increase. His interest in
athletics and other things pertaining to the best interests of the college have
endeared him to all the students and friends of Muhlenberg, and it is the earnest
hope and wish of all that he may long continue in our midst.
Instructor in Histology.
William A. Hausman, Ir., 1VI. D.
ILLIAM A. HAUSMAN, JR., was born November 18, 1878, in the City
of Allentown. He is a son of Williani A. and Ida M. CApplej Haus-
man. Mr, Hausman, Sr., was a student at Muhlenberg as a member of
the Class of '75, during the years 171-Y73. The subject of this sketch received his
earlier education in the public schools of his native city, being graduated 'from the
Allentown High School in the Class of '95. In the fall of that year he became a
student in the classical department of Muhlenberg College, but in September, 1897,
when the scientific course was established, he was the first to enroll as a member
oi that department. He graduated from Muhlenberg with honors in June, 1899,
with the degree of B. S. in biology. Wliile there he was a member of the Soph-
ronian Literary Society, and of the Delta Theta Fraternity, and now of the Phi
Gamma Delta Fraternity.
He took up the study of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in the
fall of 1899, entering the Sophomore Class, and was graduated with the degree of
M. D. in June, 1902. Dr. Hausman was elected the first resident physician of
the Allentown Hospital, in which capacity he is now most competently serving.
His appointment as instructor in histology, immediately upon his graduation from
the University of Pennsylvania, is ample proof of the esteem in which he is held
by his Alma Mater. -
The Value of Ambition.
IEBUHR, the historian, writes that " the history of all nations of the ancient
world ends in that of Rome, and that of all modern nations has grown out of
that of Rome." At first reading this may seem a rather comprehensive
statement but at second sight we realize its truth. In regard to language we can
also make almost the same assertion. The first part of it may not be applicable,
but the latter certainly is, for we can truthfully say that the history of modern
languages has also grown out of that of Rome. As every individual of a nation
has his history, so every individual word of a language has its history. As we
trace the source ofa mighty river from valley to valley, and watch its wanderings
till we reach its source, so we can trace the course of different words of the English
language, and their sources will usually be found in the language of Rome, the
language of Cicero, of Virgil, and of Horace. The water of a river at its source
is pure and sparkling, but as it descends into the valley the streams fiowing into
it, carrying refuse matter from their adjacent fields, cause the water of the river
itself to become impure and contaminated. The water of the Lehigh at its source
is, no doubt, almost as clear and pure as that of those whose sources are in the
snowy slopes of the Alps, but as it descends the valley the tributaries from the
mining sections give it the color of that mineral whose scarcity during the last
winter affected both rich and poor.
In the same manner certain words in the English language have an entirely
different coloring now from that which they had centuries ago at their source, the
Roman language. The word demon is derived from the Greek word daemon,
meaning god or goddess. The word tyrant is derived from the Latin word
fj!7"6Z7Z7'ZZLS, meaning simply an absolute ruler. The word knave is derived from the
German word lzzzabe, meaning boy. What a difference in their original meaning
and the one now applied to them. The word ambition is not an exception to the
rule, and at different centuries of the world's history it has had different meanings.
Shakespeare makes Wolsey say to Cromwell, " Fling away ambition, by that
crime fell the angels," which shows the interpretation given to the word at that
time. It is derived from the Latin word ambifio, meaning a going round, or the
going about of candidates in Rome for office, and the soliciting of individuals for
their votes. There is a distinct difference between ambiiio and ambitzcs-tlie former
designating a solicitation by just and lawful means, the latter by unlawful, as by
bribery or threats. Would that there were more ambitious citizens according to
the original meaning, the day of the professional politician would then be at an
end. To-day it is defined, first, as an eager and inordinate desire to gain power
or distinction for its own sake, second, it may be an aim, an earnest desire and
steadfast purpose to achieve something more just and commendable.
The man who is governed by the first motive only, is not one whose character
we can admire, but even such men may be instruments in the hand of the Almighty
for the accomplishment of much good. Alexander and Napoleon are often cited as
examples of ambition, and, because of these and a few similar characters who had
in view only self-exaltation, people look upon ambition in general as an evil, as if
it were derived from fzmbifus instead of ambifzb. Considering ambition in its first
meaning, is it not often a benefit to individuals and to the world at large? In the
ordinary affairs of life, the desire for fame often leads men to strive to accomplish
ends, which desire enables them to become a blessing to others as well as to them-
selves. The man who has an ambition to become a skilled mechanic simply for
personal aims, benefits the community more than the one who has no ambition
whatever. The teacher who desires to rise in his profession will likely impart
more instruction to his pupils than if such should not be his ambition. The student
who, prompted by a similar motive, has an ambition to receive the highest honors,
generally receives more benefit from his college course than the one who goes on
in a listless and careless manner. '
Bacon said : 4' To take a soldier without ambition is to pull off his spurs,"
but for others he considered it an evil. Yet can not the Battle of Life be compared
to the field of battle? It is possible that in the age of Bacon when a few ruled and
the many were driven, when a few led and the many followed, that ambition
aroused in the hearts of the common people a spirit of discontent and of pleasure
in the misfortunes of those above them. Even in some European nations such
may be the case to-day , but in this nation, where every man is a sovereign, in
this age of invention and competition, it is the man of action, the man of ambition,
who wins. It is here and in this age that the proverb, " God helps those who
help . themselves," is most applicable. It is the ambitious man who strains all
his energies towards a fixed purpose, and it is at this time when, by competition,
the prizes of life are driven farther and farther from those who seek them, that we
want not talent but purpose, not the power to achieve but the will to labor. As
the fire in the locomotive generates the steam which enables it to climb o'er hills
and mountains, so ambition engenders in us the inspiration to march, like Hannibal
of old, over frozen mountains and trackless wastes to our success in the sunny
We have been considering thus far only those whose ambition was that of
personal honor or power: let us discuss the more noble ambition, the ambition
which prompts us to achieve something more just and commendable. We may be
ambitious for our city or country, for the prosperity of a cause or the establish-
ment of a truth. It certainly should be the earnest desire of every Christian that
the moral standard of his city should be as high as possible. What should be our
opinion of a citizen who does not have ambition enough to cast his vote in the
election of those who are to administer justice and control the educational advan-
tages which he and his children enjoy? Washington and the men who left their
tracks of blood in the snows of Valley Forge were ambitious to establish the truth
that "all men are created free and equal," and the blood which flowed on the
held of Gettysburg fonr-score years afterward, came from hearts whose ambition
led them to sacrifice themselves in order that " that nation so dedicated should not
perish from the earth." Those who followed their intrepid leader up San juan
hill wished to show to the world that the tyrant's yoke will not be born by Colum-
When men are engaged in accomplishing a desire where self is eliminated, and
have at heart only the good of others, there fame often becomes the greater and
more glorious. What name stands out more prominently than that of Regulus
who endured all the tortures of Carthage in order that his ownfair city might
overcome her rival? What character in English History is more revered and
honored than that of Alfred the Great, whose sole ambition was for the better-
ment of his country and countrymen ? Bismark who saw that blood and iron were
the only means by which his Fatherland could be freed from the yoke of Austria
and the domination of France, moulded, with his iron will, a great empire out of
But we need not go back centuries and ages, to different lands and climes, and
enter the palaces of kings and princes, there to find these noble examples of ambi-
tion. They can be found in our own age, our own land, and in the ordinary affairs
of life. We are just beginning to realize the fact that Henry Ward Beecher did
as much for his native land in the crisis of the Civil War by means of his eloquence
and oratory as the most famous general on the field of battle. What character is
more to be admired than that of Booker T. Washington, who merges all his ambi-
tions in the glorious one of bettering his fallen race? What can be a nobler am-
bition than that of those who endeavor to improve the physical and moral condi-
tions of those who inhabit the slums of our large cities? Of whom can our future
Alma Mater be more proud than of those sons whose ambitions lead them to leave
their beloved country and sail to " India's coral strand," there to spread the
tidings of Him who was born in Bethlehenfs manger?
It is the aim of modern education to develop a sound mind in a sound body.
Among the prime requisites of a sound mind is a strong and powerful will. If
the college graduate has not acquired this, his education has been to a great extent
a failure. In all the walks of life a man, in order to be successful, must have the
will to overcome the obstacles as well as the enticements of life. While ambition
may possibly lead some into a life of discontent, and even make them as it were
slaves of ambition, our wills should enable us to obey the voice of conscience,
" thus far shalt thou go and no fartherf' Instead, therefore, of obeying the words
of Shakespeare, let us welcome ambition as a gift from the Giver of All, to spur
us on to nobler deeds and higher aspirations.

ROM the shadows of a quiet retreat,
The brook a sudden sally makes,
And dashes 'gainst some grassy weed,
In flowing through the verdant glades,
Now gliding o'er some stony ways,
Dashing up high its sparkling foam,
XVhich glistens with the suu's bright rays,
And IIll11'I1l1'l1'S with a gentle tone.
It rushes past the narrow banks
Of meadows sweet with fragrant air g
Gently moves the flower that hangs
Over its stream with beauty rare.
Through narrow glades and lonely dells,
It makes its way with joyous pride 3
But soon a hopeless story tells,
If we but linger at its side.
A mighty stream it now has grown,
Which glides past towns with sullen roars
For now the brook has changed it tone,
And murmurs like the breeding wars.
Still on and on it fiercely sweeps,
Swelling deeper and wider on its way g
In utter frenzy now it leaps,
Till it has joined the stormy bay.
The brook that once was free and gay,
Is ruled now by stormy waves g
With freedom gone no other way,
But with its Hercer comrades raves.
No n1ore it bickers through the sunny shade
Whirling merrily on its way 3
For Neptune a precept has laid,
Which rule it must fore'er obey.
Q23 J el '
HE oratorio to-day is one of the grandest musical treats which any person is
privileged to hear. A symphony orchestra concert may perhaps be more
enjoyable to the very classical person, and an ordinary band concert more
pleasing to the uneducated, but the oratorio as it is rendered to-day gratifies the
desires of more musicians and educated people than any other form of music in
existence, because it really includes all forms of music from the soul-inspiring
strains of the symphony orchestra and the grand majestic pipe-organ down to the
brassy tones of the amateur singer and player.
Oratorio is an Italian word and means, " a composition for voices and instru-
ments, illustrating some subject taken directly from scripture or paraphrased upon
some theme in sacred history." The music consists of symphonies or overtures,
airs, recitations, duets, trios, choruses, etc., with accompaniments for orchestra or
The origin and growth of oratorio is almost coeval with that of opera, both
being developments of the early forms of drama, or, to speak more clearly,
oratorio may be said to be the successor of the mediaeval mystery play, as was the
opera of the morality. In both cases however, the poetical description of the
subjects chosen is accompanied with music, but with this difference, that whereas
the opera required also scenery and dramatic action in its representation, oratorio
is now performed without either.
The first oratorios were supposed to be hymns, psalms, and songs of praise
set to Latin and Italian words, and to be as old as the time of the Crusades. It
was not until five centuries later, that it was made a recognized and distinct
n1edium of instruction and pleasure.
The musical performances in the early cathedrals were divided into two parts,
a short form of prayer preceding the first part, a sermon, the second part, the
whole being concluded with religious exercises. By this plan those who came for
the main purpose of the music were constrained to take part in the devotional
observances, and, doubtless, obtained much spiritual advantage. By degrees the
psalms and spiritual songs gave place to sacred stories or events in scripture written
in verse, sometimes in dialogue, and set to music. The subjects most popular in
early times were: the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, Tobit with the Angel,
the Sacrince of Abraham, and others, and the name of the place where these were
first heard was given to the class of music performed.
The first work in any way corresponding to the more modern form of oratorio,
with solos, recitatives, cl1oruses, and orchestral accompaniments was called La
Rapp7fe5enz'az'z'o1zc di Animal e di Corjbo, composed by Emilio del Cavaliere, performed
in the oratory of the Church of Santa Maria della Vallicella at Rome in 1600. It
was represented in action on a stage erected in the church, with scenery and
costumes 5 dances were also introduced. Each singer was required to have a ine
voice, perfectly in tune, and free from all defects in the delivery of it, with a path-
etic expression, the power of swelling and diminishing the tones, and to be par-
ticularly attentive to the expression of the words, and to have an equal respect for
the composer as for the poet. The instruments, consisting of a double lyre,
double guitar, a harp, and two flutes, accompanied this oratorio behind the scenes.
The next oratorio of importance was Strada-lla's St. john Me BajJ!z's!, and,
judging from the specimens printed, is remarkable for beauty and sublimity g the
scoring also shows some progress in musical thought, but the work is little known,
as it still remains in manuscript.
The next writer of importance was Carissimi 5 his compositions are marked
by sweetness of melody, clever modulations, and skilful harmony 3 his rnost noted
oratorios are tl1efmz'g17zcazf qf Sofomaaz, and ffphfha..
Like the opera, oratorio arose and was nourished in Italy, to be developed to
its highest form by German writers 3 and, although it was permitted to be used in
the offices of the Roman Church, and was to some extent abused by Italian
writers, yet the value of oratorio was recognized by the German reformers of the
sixteenth century, who encouraged its introduction into their churches, with a
result that ultimately led to its most complete forms. It was formerly the custom
in the German Lutheran Church to have oratorios performed with instrumental
accompaniments on solemn occasions g the congregation was asked to join in the
chorals or Psalm tunes which were introduced for this purpose. The Pczssion,
mfardivzg Z0 Sf, flfnffflfzv, by john Sebastian Bach, is an excellent example of this
kind of work. Bach's oratorios were written for the service of the Church, and
were never intended for any other purpose, the introduction of the oratorio into
secular places being a later idea.
Handel, who is allowed to be the representative composer of oratorio, pro-
duced his first work, La .1aC'S7l7'7'6ZZ'0l18, while he resided in Italy, before he was
twenty years of age. Fifteen years later, while he was organist to the Duke of
Chandos, Esfhwf, the first oratorio written by him in England, was brought
forward privately g it was, however, not until 1732 that it was produced in public,
having been laid aside for twelve years. In the advertisement announcing this
performance it was considered necessary to give the following explanation of the
plan, as oratorios were then a novelty in England : U By His Majesty's command,
at the Kingls Theatre in the Haymarket, on Tuesday, the 2d of May, will be per-
formed the sacred story of Esfher, an oratorio in English, composed by Mr,
Handel, and to be performed by a great number of voices and instruments.
N. B. There will be no acting on the stage, but the house will be fitted up in a
decent manner for the audience." This explanation Was needful because of the
prevalent prejudice against the dramatic performance of sacred subjects. After
the advanced age of fifty-three, and in defiance of prejudice and failure, Handel
gave to the World those immortal productions with which his name is now famil-
iarly associated. The majority of these works were performed at the theatre in
the Haymarket, Deborah being first given in 1733, Aihaliak in 1734, Ame! in
Egypzf in 1738, the flfessiak in 1741, Samson in 1742, judas Maccabaezzs in 1746,
fosbmz in 1747, Soloman in 1749, and fejafha in 1751, The greatest works in this
list are Israel in Egjybz' and the flfessiah.
The next oratorio of importance rendered in London was Haydn's best known
work, the C1'eczfz'on, produced in 1798. The special qualities of this oratorio, are
found in the brightness of the choruses and the interest of the instrumentation.
In general design the Crea!z'on is inadequate to the subject treated of, and while
the ear is pleased by the sparkling and varied treatment, the heart is never moved
by emotions which the grandeur of the theme should have inspired. In fact
Haydn was the author of but few oratorios, the Return of Tobias, the Seasons,
the Seven Last Words, and the Creation being all his compositions that can be in
any way classed under this head. The Seven Lam' Words is more in accordance
with the character of the Lutheran oratorios, being intended to follow seven short
sermons on the last words of our Lord,
Beethovc-:n's the fllozmz' qf Olives is a drama rather than an oratorio, full of
sublime and noble thoughts, but ineffective without the aid of scenery and
Spohr's oratorios, the Cmcgixiovz, the Lastfzzdgmenl, and the Fa!! gf Babylon,
contain many grand and surprising thoughts, much beauty of melody and clever
The most successful of modern date was Mendelssohn, and his Elgkzh and
Si. Pau! served to revive the drooping taste of oratorio, Elyah was produced at
Birmingham in 1846, and SZ. Paul ten years previously at Diisseldorf, and both
Works have since held high rank as well in the estimation as in the affections of
musicians. Of the two, Si. Pau! more completely fulfills the conditions of oratorio
proper in the arrangement of its narrative portions, and for this reason, and for
its intrinsic merit, Sf. Pam! is held to be Mendelssohn's best oratorio. Elyab is
more dramatic in constitution, and if the prejudice should ever be sufficiently
overcome to permit of its performance on the stage, with proper scenery and
action, it will attain even greater importance than that it at present enjoys.
Of the more recent contributions to oratorio music there are few worthy to be
mentioned, as they are for most part feeble filterings of an almost exhausted stream,
Oratorio has ever been more patronized in England than on the Continent,
but, until the establishment of the Sacred Harmonic Society in 1832, the oppor-
tunity for hearing it was of rare occurrence, being confined almost to the annual
meetings of the three choirs of Gloucester, Hereford, and Worcester in the
provinces, and to the Lenten performances in London. The example set by this
society has been imitated with success, not only in London, but in this country,
and oratorio societies and performances are now frequent, and upon a scale of
grandeur, magnificence, and, we might almost say, perfection.

S if by magic, sunrise gates unbar,
And quivering tl1reads, shining silver bright,
Overflood the world with glistening white,
Till sparkling dew shines like a single star.
The meadow lark is singing from afar, I
In taking at dawn its rapturons flight,
A song which thrills with heaven's pure delight
That all troubles sweetly forgotten are.
So, as the dawn does brighten all this earth
Your radiant beauty with tears and smiles
Keep me, because I know you love me, dear!
As the lark, you lighten me with your mirth,
And frighten me more with so many wiles.
But still our love 'tis same from year to year.
Twilight now comes upon the mountain crest,
Wliile dim darkness lies onthe su11's last gold g
And the timid stars now again are bold,
As the dazzling light sinks into the West.
The Howers clroop and sink upon their breast,
Witliiii their petals softest sleep do hold.
And o'er the hills the bells are slowly tolled
For one whom nature called to sacred rest.
I fear that twilight of our lives, n1y love,
When Time's rough hand thy beauty hath defaced,
And love's sweet beauty falls into decay.
This life is but the will of Him above,
Wl1icl'1 thought, like death, makes most dreaded the day
VVhen Time will appear and take you away.
Will We Make It?
N a beautiful day of june two bright-eyed, merry lads roamed over fields
and meadows, vales and hills, bringing before them their Hooks from green
pastures. Slowly they wandered homeward, observing the wonderful
transmutations in nature's laboratory, and now and then plucking the sweet-smel-
ling flowers that grew along their pathway. But suddenly a dark cloud arose
above the western horizon, the sun ceased to send forth its sparkling rays upon
the fragrant flowers, the wind began to blow with terriic blasts, the lightning
flashed, the thunder rolled 3 and, as the lads were yet away from a father's anx-
ious care and a mother's fond embrace, and, intensely terrified on account of the
approaching storm, the younger lad faced the other for a moment, while from
those pale and trembling lips escaped these simple words : " Will we make it?"
iNot only men of all ages, but nations as well, have been confronted with the
struggles and difficulties of solving this very same question. Historians have
ever been delighted to pen the immortal deeds of mankind achieved by noble
efforts, and poets have loved to sing of heroic struggles in language glowing in
eloquence and intrinsic in beauty. Innumerable have been the sacrifices, but
inestimable the blessings bestowed by a firm determination to overcome didiculties
almost unsurmountable. Greece had her Thermopylaeg Scotland had her Ban-
nockburn and her immortal Bruce 3 America had her Revolution, with a glorious
Bunker Hill and a Yorktowng Cuba, that fairest gem of Qthe West Indies, had
her patriot armies, and resolved that rich plantations and fertile valleys should
not forever be trampled under the heels of Spanish tyranny, but that the warm
sea which laves her rocky shores might sing the anthem of the free.
As patriotic Americans and as devoted citizens we love to sing of our own
native land, and we are proud of her enlightened civilization and her material
splendor 3 but as a nation will we make or are we destined to meet the same doom
as the nations of antiquity, namely, decay and ruin? We are living in a land of
accumulated wealth, where marvelous inventions have made men comfortable and
happy, "Isolation, the mother of barbarism," is no longer possible, or even
desirable 3 but " intercourse, the soul of progressf' rules supreme by the wonder-
ful way that God and man have linked our people and the nations together. The
tropics are brought to the poles, the poles to the tropics. Everything is brought
from everywhere to everywhere. Maine goes to Chicago, a thousand miles, for her
daily food. Even old England is gradually coming about three thousand miles
on that very same errand. But does not this material growth bring us to the same
doom as Carthage, who was mighty but is in ruins, or Rome, whose glory has
departed, and all her towers and material splendors have long since crumbled into
dust? Are there any indications or have we any reasons to believe that America
will meet the same fate as the republics of old? If America is not growing
morally as well as materially, there must be something decidedly wrong at the
core of our society g and we are compelled to answer this question negatively, for
it would, under such conditions, only be a question of time when our triumphs
would end as mournfully as the materialism of antiquity.
However, there can not be any doubt that Christianity is the only hope of a
nation and that rejbzrblics mmf derayfrom 'ZF'Z'llAZ'7Z internally, not externally. All
fallen republics decayed from within. Let us take an imaginary journey to the
cemetery of departed nations. Read the inscriptions on the tomb-stones as we
hastily pass along. Here lies Rome, born 753 B. C. Died for lack of religion
and morals. Withiii her borders was the home of oppression, injustice, poverty,
wretchedness, and vice. Even religion was only a compound of superstitious and
ritual observances. It did not come from God. It was neither lofty nor pure.
There lies Carthage, born about 850 B. C. Once the proud and boasttul mistress
of the sea, but ot all cities of the world, Carthage was probably the most wicked-
a seething caldron of impurities and abominations. A den for all the vices which
disgrace humanity. Pure religion utterly despised, for it is said that in all her
vast dominions, at the time of her fall, there was not erected one altar unto the
worship of the true God. Wliat killed Babylon? Wliat killed Assyria? Yonder
tomb-stones tell the tale. One word still stands out pre-eminently as a glowing
meteor-a word which the storms of time can not erase. It is dcjbnwizjf.
How entirely changed are our conditions compared with the nations of
antiquity. Rome was a country of nobility and slaves only, but we are all free
men. No hordes of barbarians constantly hover over our borders to watch our
dissensions and help on our quarrels. There are saving iniiuences silently at work
in our republic which old Rome likely never dreamt of. We are living in a land
of wonderful material growth and splendor, but morality is keeping pace with our
external refinement. Renown and grace are not dead but burn more brightly and
purely than ever before. Throughout the entire length and breadth of our country-
whether along the Gulf of Mexico, or the Lakes, whether along the rock bound
Pacific, or the clear and sparkling waters of Maine-everywhere God's name is
held in reverence, and on nearly every hill-top is erected an altar of worship where
men bow in reverential awe and in humble submission unto the Divine YVill. If
we as a nation remain Erin and steadfast in inward purity, the inevitable answer
is yes, we will make it.
The same thing is equally true with individuals. If we seek honor, fame, and
riches as the highest aim of life, if we scoff at religion and consider it as only a
farce or a phantom, there is but one answer. It is No.
On the other hand if we seek after inward purity, if we, in the words of the
Psalmist, " keep our hearts with all diligence," if we cast away ambition and
worldly honors for true nobility, and if we, with a fixed and steadfast determina-
tion, do not permit material splendors to detract our footsteps from the path which
leads to that life which man is destined to live beyond the grave, we can again
answer this question aflirmatively. If we imbibe the goodness of nature's God, if
every gurgling brook and crystal lake, if every rippling fountain and murmuring
waterfall, if every passing cloud and gently whispering breeze, if all the charms
and songs of nature shall speak to us of God's eternal wisdom and love, and draw
us more closely to Jehovah, the Lord God Omnipotent, we can not fail g we must
succeed, for the power of God is within us.
Our pathway of life may not be strewed with roses newly born, and no spicy
perfume of sweet-scented flowers may burden the silent air along our pathway,
but whatever our lot, both as a nation and as individuals, let us ever remember
that our highest eminence rests in purity-not in any treasure that fadeth. It
rests in that purity written across the brow of a kind-hearted, God-fearing mother
as she teaches her little one upon her knee such sweet songs of heaven that all the
noise of earth can not hush 'in its soul. Purity, would that it could be written in
shining letters of gold across the arched canopy of heaven as a guide for the youth
and as an admonition for the aged, so that all mankind might ever breath the beau-
tiful sentiments of Charles Kingsley :
" Be good, let who may be clever g
Do 11oble things, not dream all day long 1
And so make life, death, and that vast forever
One grand, sweet song."
SOME STRAY THOUGHTS.
.99 125 vel
IVES are as passing clouds,
In many hues
Of brilliant blues,
Destined to go brief routes.
SOUIC dark and gloomy are,
Wliicli God's kind laws do mar
By varied lives
Witli many strifes.
Others, bright, cheerful and kind,
Closer us to God do bind.
QC- it 6'1-
IN vain, o'er earth he roves,
The man that beauty loves.
He finds only the real,
For beauty is ideal.
HOPE oft, like ships by tempest tossed,
Is thrown against some jagged rock,
As though sails and rudder were lost.
But it's images come again to mock
Us, of those hopes that We have lost.
94- it it it
LOVE is a passion of the heart
As sung by many an ancient bard.
Man in pursuance of its art
Is made a fool in every part.
MANYS trouble never ends,
No never does it cease,
Until to WOITl311,S mind he bends,
And then he will have peace.
DEATH is but a deeper sleep,
A fate which everyone must meet.
Though man may rnuch lament,
Yet that divine will he can not bend,
For with justice 'tis his end,
Because he does and did not heed
Those precepts, that him too should lead

PROPOSED DORMITORY OF GREATER MUHLENBERG COLLEGE.
FRONT ELEVATION TO BE KNOWN AS " BERKS HALL.',
.23 .25 JV
HE alumni and friends of Muhlenberg have been aware for some time that
steps have been taken to secure new, larger, and more commodious quarters
for the growing needs of the-College.
We are pleased to be able, at this time, to present the front elevations of two
of the fine buildings that will be erected on the fifty acre tract purchased a year ago.
THE MAIN BU1LD1N0.
This will occupy the highest part of the new grounds, half way between
Twenty-third and Twenty-Hfth Streets, after the same are opened, and between
Turner and Liberty Streets, where the same are extended, facing south, about two
hundred and fifty feet north of Chew Street.
The dimensions of this building will be 190 feet and IO inches long, and 65
feet wide, with a basement and three stories, built of a blue stone as high as the
basement, and from there of Scranton pink granite, with Indiana limestone trim-
mings. The style of architecture is known as the English Renaissance, The
architects are Wallace E. Ruhe, a former student at Muhlenberg, and Robert
Lang, of Allentown. The cost of the building will be 584,885 which, by reason
of the competition between several dealers in stone, is several hundred dollars less
than the lowest estimate for a brick and stone building as originally contemplated.
The basement is to contain a temporary gymnasium with baths, toilet, and
locker rooms adjoining the same, a large assembly room for the students, bicycle
and coat rooms, and janitor's apartments. The first story is to contain a reception
room, President's and Treasurer's rooms, the latter provided with a fireproof vault 5
a 'temporary chapel, four large and one small recitation rooms. The second floor
is to provide temporarily the library and reading-room, the physical laboratory and
lecture room, biological laboratory, museum and recitation rooms. The third Hoor
will have two large literary society halls, and rooms for The flfZlAf677b6'7g', Press
Club, and other students' organizations. The building is to be of slow burning
construction, vi ith an iron staircase, steam heat, electric lights, and a freight
elevator. Its appointments and furnishings will be modern and up to date.
" BERKS HALL" DORMITORY.
The general scheme of the proposed dormitories is to place them around a
rectangle, 120 feet by 208 feet, adopting a typical Oxford or Cambridge system.
They will be divided into sections holding from I2 to 16 students each, and will be
entered from the quadrangle through small doorways. The typical plan of each
section provides for a hall with a staircase, with suites of rooms on either side,
each suite consisting of- a study and two bedrooms 3 with lavatories on each iloor
provided with shower-baths, etc. The main entrance to the dormitories will be
flanked with towers, which will contain on the first floor an oihce, a reception
room, rooms for baggage and for the janitor.
The elevation shown in this illustration will face south, and will be about 185
feet long, three stories high. This whole front has been selected by the Lutherans
of Berks County to be called "Berks Hall," and they have resolved to raise
335,000 to pay for its erection, It will accommodate about 75 students. Addi-
tional sections will be needed on the other sides of the quadrangle. Single sections
will cost about 56000. Anyone undertaking the erection of such a section can
name it, and the authorities of the College will be glad to inscribe the name of the
donor on the hall, and so designate it in the catalogue,
The other two buildings will be the President's residence and a power house.
The plans for these are in course of preparation at present. The ground for the
main building was broken April .2oth g the corner stone is to be laid on Commence-
ment day, june 18th, in the afternoon, and the time fixed for its completion is
july Ist, 1904. -
THE BUILDING FUND.
A beginning has been made to provide the necessary funds to make all these
improvements, which will cost fully g200,000. So far nearly 550,000 have been
subscribed or paid in. This amount includes over 551 I,00o, subscribed or paid in
by the alumni. The Lutherans of Berks County have undertaken to raise 535,000.
for " Berks Hall. The alumni aim to realize an average ofiroo for each alumnus,
making over jS5o,0oo. Organizations have been effected in every County in
Eastern Pennsylvania, by which laymen are to canvass the congregations. Some
have begun the work and others are starting in with it. Fully 310,000 will be
required monthly, during the building operations, to pay the contractors, Ritter
and Smith, of Allentown, for labor and material furnished.
We therefore strongly urge our alumni and friends everywhere to send in
their contributions as early as possible. There has been much talk about this
project-now let your money talk. C. J. C.

'An unknown Solution.
at-5 .29 .99
S I was sitting in my room,
Hoping that sleep would call me soon
A most surprising thing occurred.
A thing which of I ne'er ere heard.
The smoke, curling out of my pipe,
Formed pictures which were most lifelike.
Scenes which often had made me smile,
And kept me joyous quite a While.
These memories, as them I call
Are scenes enacted 'neath this hall.
The lirst was that of a small chap
Looking for his rubbers and hat,
In IVackey's they always dis'pear
Causing this fellow lots of fear.
In Chemistry, he near me stands,
And is better than a brass band.
In Lab. I know him on a day
To spill solution newit and say,
With earnestness and slight debate,
That's all right I part of yours I'll take.
What I've said before, I recall
These scenes to hap beneath this hall.
The scene which next to me then came
Is not known quite so much to fame.
It was a boy who had a fall,
He thought he was so very tall,
Then slipped twenty yards down some ice,
And sat there awhile in surprise.
Some may wonder who he may be
His initials are H. S. G.
The next vision that then appeared
Came up with music very weird g
To speak of this I need more space,
For man like that needs a great place.
Since he is a musician grand,
Who plays in a very large band.
But this is not the scene I saw,
I'll tell you ere I will say more.
In the midst of encircling smoke,
Stood this person just then awoke.
Expounding the wisdom he knew,
lfVhich then indeed to us was new.
Six physiologies perused
He had, in his flowery youth,
XVhich had called the lobes of the lungs,
The wings in each and everyone.
W'hen this with bearing very bold
To our worthy doctor then told,
The President replied to hinl,
Raffle Aves, they niust have been.
This vision then slowly vanished,
Another in its place I inet.
It was our journalistic friend
Whose voice is always to us lent.
H'e's known to us in P. XV. L.
Always ready with his great yell.
This vision came up with much noise,
No doubt caused by his splendid voice.
It vanished before I could see
Whate'er on this picture might be.
Perhaps it was only doing
What he forever does, yelling.
Another then again appeared
Of one whom I have always feared.
One time he seemed so very wise,
As the Irish say, " Mong th' byesj' '
But then he made intrigues and plots
Not quite satisfied with his lot.
With half-shut eyes, he nieditates
On whatever 'fore hini is laid.
But again I ani wandering,
Not telling what I am seeing.
A person in a classrooni was,
Filling it with a gentle buzz,
By using words to show wisdom,
NVhich made for us a little fun.
But the subject of this makes nie deter
From using it in this meter.
The subject I'11 relate in prose,
For it sounds not so well in verse.
He gave us an etyrnological talk on the
Teleological Evidence in Natural Theology
Talking of this, the words he used
Were niost tremendously abused.
He used them not in proper sense,
Which to this scene some humor lent.
The smoke another vision made,
A scene which in the Lyric's laid.
A youth had brought his maid to see
Whatever like this show would be.
T'vvas, if I remember rightly,
Called, " An Editoi-'s Love Story."
His heels in air he kept awhile,
In what may be called barroonx style
His name is known --.
My eyes are closing now in sleep
And prevent me his name to read.
The smolm e is from my pipe all gone.
To me no other vision comes along,
So then my pen I lay aside
Hoping to end some other night.

USICIANS great and small, we have in our noble Class,
Nowhere are any to be found whose work they can surpass
Some people play the claffionel, and some the flute with ease g
But who is it that taught the boys? l'll tell you if you please.
'Twas Mr. Dooley, Mr. Dooley,
To our Class he taught a thing or two.
And now we're happy and awful jolly,
Along with Mr. Dooley-ooley-ooley-oo.
Now Afkef' heads the list, you see, and he's a naughty man,
His voice indeed sounds something like a bullfrog in the dam g
VVhen seen upon the stage, the ladies willingly declare,
There's only one who does surpass this gentleman so fair.
'Tis Mr. Dooley, Mr. Dooley,
Who made ,the mighty Afkef' roar so loud.
He is a singer, and not a ringer, '
Along with Mr. Dooley-ooley-ooley-oo.
An organist is next in line, and Spoany is the man,
Manipulates the organ in the best style that he can g
Religious hymns and jolly songs he truly always sings,
The only song that through his head or little ears does ring.
It's Mr. Dooley, Mr. Dooley,
The greatest man the country ever knew,
Quite diplomatic and democratic,
ls Mr. Dooley-ooley-ooley-oo.
The music that is handled by the band called " Pioneer "
ls written by a funny lad who does indeed seem queer.
His name is Ifebodz, and he plays the clarionet so fair,
The only H1611 who appreciate these melodies are rare.
It's Mr. Dooley, Mr. Dooley,
A friendqof Kebqdz, surely, he must beg
Quite energetic and sympathetic,
Is Mr. Dooley-ooley-ooley-oo.
Mr. Iflerkvzer plays the violin and Ritter does the same g
And " Bowzx " Ernfy, true, 'tis said, is also i11 the game.
XfVith all the great musicians they have made an awful hit,
Alld but few of them acknowledge that the man invented it
'Twas Mr. Dooley, Mr. Dooley,
The violinist of the 'universe,'
So instructive and appreciative
Is Mr. Dooley-ooley-ooley-oo.
A comedian of' renown is found in the Class of 1904,
Who handles the piano and sets up a mighty roar.
His name is Wurlzler and we all agree in harmony,
There is only one that can be proud to keep him company.
It's Mr. Dooley, Mr. Dooley,
He and LV1lCflf67' make a Mighty Class g
Drinky-Beer sei, ealy cheese sei,
In the world they can not be surpassed.

" The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,

The motions of his spirit are dull as night
And his affections dark as Erebus Z
Let no such man be trusted." fSfzzzkc'spe1z1'e.j
Wlieii our boys can not stand before the mighty onslaughts of a superior
foot-ball team, when victory seldom crowns the efforts of our boys in base-ball,
then it is like a draught of cool, refreshing spring-water to a dusty, way-worn
traveller for our sinking spirits to know that at least one organization at Muhlen-
berg always succeeds, always wins.
Witli just pride every student of Muhlenberg can point to the achievements
of our " famousw Glee Club and Zobo Band. The people, wherever we have
performed, associate our name most intimately with a good time and pleasant
recollections. And we have met them all. Such as vociferously applauded the
initial number and such as were more reserved in giving their applause, until
perchance " Annie Laurie," or the antics of the famed Zobo Band 5' captured the
gallery gods " and " caught the house in good style " for a prolonged and hearty
applause. Much truth is wrapt up in the following lines, as every glee-club
member can attest :
" Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast,
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak."
If this is true of music in a general sense, 'it is much more true when the
music is produced by such a troop of artists as ours under the able direction of an
equally artistic leader.
" Yond Lawrefzre has a lean a11d hungry look g
He thinks too much 1 such men are dangerousf'
And dangerous he has been, is and will be to the walls of reserve behind
which some people intrench themselves, when they go to a concert with studied
austerity, vowing not to be moved by, not to laugh at, the funny songs and sayings
of college boys. But, by the skillful nianoeuvering of his natural and trained
elocutionary talents, Mr. Rupp never failed to coax an audience from behind these
trenches and to merit the generous applause of appreciative listeners. The writer
would go far beyond the limits set for this sketch to dwell separately upon the
excellent work done by our soloists: Mr. L. Serfass, Mr. J. Weaver, and the
commendable work of our director, Mr. R. Kline, to say nothing of the masterly
work of Mr. W. Acker as accompanist and piano soloist. Suffice it to say that
they always pleased even the most critical audience.
'A 'Tis not in mortals to eommczmz' success,
But we'll do more Sempronius g we'll deserve it."
By the tireless energy of our director, by the sacrificing spirit of some of our
alumni, by the self-denial of theindividual members of the club, we have merited,
we deserve the success which we have won in singing. Wliether we will also be
as successful iinancially is a question which only the concerts of the future
Comparison with other college glee club programs is perhaps the best way to
arrive at the merits and faults of ours. And when we apply this test we need not
takea back seat as regards the quality of music we reuderg for our selections
include music by such well-known composers as Dudley Buck, Lacome, Busch,
and others equally well known.
Our schedule-has, perhaps, not been as large as that of other colleges, but We
have had good quality. just to warm up a little we made our first bow this season
to an audience at Alburtis, which we will never forget, as it was the beginning of
a successful season of singing. Then we sang at Lancaster before a large audience,
which highly complimented our efforts by repeated applause to all our numbers.
If we forget thee, O Wilkesbarre, where we next sang, may we ever be known
as ungrateful scoundrels. At an entertainment, given by the K. of F., Allenton-
iaus set their stamp of approval upon our musical efforts, In commenting upon
our next concert, which was given at Reading, one of the papers gave us the
following " send off " in speaking of our Zobo Band selection : "Really, one
would not have been surprised if the audience, like crows, had
Stamped about and tramped about that mud till all the troop
Made noises as they romped about, like school-boys eating soup."
In closing this sketch it is needless to dwell upon the sad experience we have
had this year as regards the management, but it may be well to call to our attention
the lines of Pope in which he says :
" Honor and :shame from no condition rise 3
Act wellyouf' part, there all honor lies."

To THE ALLENTOWN GIRL.
.5 .2-U A
May I this tribute pay, thou most divinely fair,
A phantom clear of thee, I see within my call,
With starlike eyes flashing in sorrow as in prayer.
In grief, I see thee standing there divinely tall,
Knowing that soon I must forever leave this hall.
XVhose sound is like the gentle falling of the rain,
The gentle murmur that by God in peace was strung
LOW with all passion, to relieve hearts full of pain.
Let thy dear voice in silver chorded ,tones be rung,
For there is no music that is not by thee sung.
Whose touch is as the breeze in an evening spring,
Bringing balm brushed from many a tender bough,
Sweet is the comfort and joy that to me it brings.
Let thy sweet hands not in my mind for-e'er allow,
But touch my longing mouth and cool my heated brow.
XVhose least look is like morning to a troubled soul,
XVith their piercing light Love has tipt his keenest dart
The pure clear Hre in them ambitions do control.
Illunie me, O eyes, and cast light into my heart,
So that hope is in me until death does us part.
The rose's lovelier sisters, you whose sacred breath
Seems the perfected spirit of the tender rose.
They contain the secret of love which laughs at death.
Wheneler a smile of love upon them does repose,
A nery furnace my heart then seems to enclose.
Oh ! that to me was only given the power
To picture it then, as in truth, it should be done.
But, Alas ! when to thy vision I drew nearer,
It vanished as quickly as the evening sun,
When its work on this gloomy orb of ours is done.
But the beauty of which God himself has a Care,
Left an impress of what is secret and divine
In me, and makes me give up in utter despair,
To extol its greatness in this worthless piece of rhyme.
For 'tis like the mystery of some ancient shrine.

Autobiography of Mr. Cimex Lectularius.
Q9 Q5 65
WAS born about II o'clock on the night of January twenty-third, amid auspi-
cious surroundings, in the little village of Bedville, in Coop 55, Muhlenberg
College. At the time of 1ny arrival, I have been told since, the bi-pedular
creatures, who nightly stretch their tired limbs in our quiet, home-loving com-
munities, were celebrating a basket-ball victory over F. 8: M. College by a night-
shirt parade, and my father was absent, being safely esconced under the collar of
one of these night-garments. I was the thirty-ninth of a family of forty-one
children. My fatherts name was Acanthia Lectularius, and, as I suppose his
mind was taxed to its utmost to ind names for so many promising sons and
daughters, I received the peculiar cognomen of Cimex. My father belonged to
the party of the I-Iemiptera in politics, and was a devout church-goer, attending
services every Sunday in the Church of the Epizoa. I very naturally followed in
his foot-steps. At the age of five days, we removed to Coop 54 on the same
avenue, where I now reside. The removal was necessitated by the superfluous
sprinkling of a peculiarly-smelling liquid, which we received one morning, at the
hands of a band of bipeds who cleaned the Coop, and who waged a cruel war-
fare on our race. This caused the death of several of our number, but extermin-
ation of the race is impossible, as we are a hearty lot of creatures.
My early childhood was spent in play with my little fellow bugs. Our
favorite games were " shinny on the bed-postsf' " spring, and spring over," on
the bed-springs, and " going through the feathers," which was played in the
dark recesses of a pillow. At the age of ten days I was sent to school on the out-
skirts of Bedville, where I was particularly to-become skilled in the use of the
sting, our national weapon. The sessions of school were held from 9 P. M. to rr
P. M., and from 1 A. M. to 3 A. M. These hours may seem peculiar to some of
our antipodes, but on account of the nature of the occupation by which we are
accustomed to gain our living, which demands night forour labors, we chose them
as the most suitable, so that duri11g the day we can perambulate through the
cracks and crevices, and, finding a shady nook in which to recuperate, we may
give ourselves over to sweet dreams.
On the evening of the thirtieth day of my existence, I hied myself away to
the school-room bright and early. It was my graduation day, and a public exam-
ination was to be held from r to 3 o'clock, A. M., to display to the admiring
friends and relatives the efficiency we had reached in the use of our weapons.
The examination consisted in stinging the occupant of the Coop, the number of
stings each one made being counted, and his grade fixed accordingly, It is beyond
my power to describe the appearance of some parts of that occupant's anatomy,
after he had undergone this experience. It fell to my happy lot to ply my powers
on the sole of his left foot, and that extremity somewhat resembled a small sieve.
Since that eventful time I have lived a happy life, as well as a useful one, in
our community. Soon after my graduation, I took unto myself a charming little
bugess as my partner in life. I have now reached quite a mature age, and have
hopes of dying a natural death. This is very often denied the members of our
race on account of the fierce onslaughts of our enemies, the students, in which a
great number of my people suffer death. Indeed, very little mercy is shown to us.
It has lately reached my ears that the college is soon to remove into new quarters.
If this is the case, and, as I hope, we are allowed to accompany the students, I
earnestly pray that the relation between our respective peoples may be a more
happy one, thereby being better suited to our taste, and more beneicial to our
Q9 99 V95
In base-ball he's proficieiit,
In recitations-quite omniscient g
But in our little class-fights
The least said is suflicient.
To him is given the wisdom of Socrates.
Quiet, industrious, and bright g
In society, not out ofsight.
Whenever the Gast House I pass,
I always stop in and take a glass.
In St. Michael's i11 the choir,
An orator, with hidden fire.
Unlike his brothers in appearance,
Filled with knowledge and experience.
Oh I what a mind we here do find,
Such as is not in all his kind.
To Fein-Sem he does stray,
To see the dames i11 their play.
This is the soldier lad,
In armour of brass well-cfad 3
Before no one he does bow low,
But manages to get his furlough.
Says Mr. Kurtz to his chum in a dream,
Tis hard to go through life unmarried."
Says chuni to Kurtz, t'Ah ! well do I see
How thou hast needless trouble borrowed
Dainty in manner, polite i11 his ways 3
Not given to things in any way gay
A man of weight and mind,
A debater of fame.
Comes early in the morning
'With a friend-but-what's the name?
Oh ! what a classical face he has,"
A11 Allentown girl was heard declare.
And the boys, they call hi111 4' parsonf'
Perhaps because his brow is bare.
SCH LO'r'r13R .
It costs so little ! I wonder why
We give it so little thought !
A smile-kind words-a glance-a touch !
What magic with them is wrought I
Orators may grieve 3 for in their sides,
Rather than in their heads, their faculty abides.
It is the heart and not the brain,
That to the highest does attain.
Ah I well do I remember,
The light at our foot-ball game.
How we tried to save our banner 1
" Vell, I vas de man dat did it."
A true Berks County lad is he,
lf pursued by a bear he'd climb a tree 3
If the limb should break he'd say a word or two
Mr. L' Bear '7 eat me or I'll eat you."
Little, but mighty g
High-minded, but Ilighty.
Now this is a peculiar man
In very many ways.
He e'en in merry bachelor-hood,
Expects to spend his days.
Happy-go-lucky, and plucky,
YVith a smile his friends to greet g
A terror to his man in foot-ball,
A jolly good fellow to meet.
Ye call me " guard," and ye do well,
Who in foot-ball never fell.
To him the name is not in vain,
Around fair maidens his web is lain.
This is not the web of a duck,
Although it sometimes runs a muck.
Latin and Greek seem nothing to me,
Mathematics suits me to the tee 3
Give to me pretzels and beer
Alld I will give a glorious cheer.
This amorous youth in his Senior year
Was offered quite a flattering stage career 3
That he did not accept, ah ! 'twas a pity,
A " hit " was lost in the "Eternal City."
A Sunday-school teacher you bet he is,
In base-ball he never is missed.
Has curly hair and a pleasant smile g
To see a girl, he'd Walk a mile.
Mr. Acker is a pretty goorl man,
He studies Latin now and then.
Spoony he is called by the boys.
His rubbers, hat, and overcoat
Indeed i11 the air seemed to float.
Froni over the river in East Allentown,
Coines this young inan with never a frown 3
Always pleasant and jolly and gay,
He goes through life by the easiest way.
Get him in business and after the cash
All by the time he can grow a mustache 3
Let him forget he was ever a boy,
Make gold his god and jingle his joy g
Keep him a hustling and clear out of breath,
Until he wins- nervous prostration and death
Now Mr. Dry, whenever you see,
A couple of Freshmen on a spree g
Step up, politely tell your nanie
And the place from whence you came.
Perhaps tl1ey'll pity and let you go
If not, long legs are never slow.
Relate to me, O Muse I
VVhy spend my years in Greek and Latin?
O Muse ! aid nie, direct me,
A second Shakespeare let me be.
To him by far the greatest glory,
ls to tell his cliuni a story.
Borax ! Borax I I Borax l I !
Not ajislzer of nien, as lie aims to be,
But ajislzwf of girls one can plainly see.
Hans is a great, big, young man,
Always does the best he can 3
His head is filled with facts and figures,
That to some men would seein stickers.
At our banquet February 28,
In the night at an hour late,
The night overcast, when descending the rain
lt was then, I established my fame.
Now Larry is a funny lad
In all his ways and gait 3
In German recitations,
He never stays late.
A girl I know most fair to see,
So lovely i11 her best array g
Her every pose enraptures me,
She lives at Laury's, Pa,
Late out at nights, with friends you see,
Knows his lessons well, as plain as A B C.
He comes, he comes, like the North wind, nay,
But slow and slow each live-long day.
He's as gentle as a dove. '
The reason why? He's in love.
I am a musician I am,
I can play the bag-1611155 I can,
The organ, jJ1'rz110,fIUZe, and lyre,
The 06150072 and clrzrivzezf like Hre 3
A manager of an opera l'll be
And conduct my business across the sea.
Mathematics are to many a bore,
But this little man they make quite sore.
A diller, a dollar, a ten o'clock scholar,
NVhat makes llllll come so soon?
He used to come at ten o'cloek,
But now he comes at noon.
Toil not for title, place, or touch,
Or pension, neither count on praise 3
lt grows to gnerdon after days :
Nor deal in watchwords overmnch.
When yon've work to do
D0 it with a will g
They who reach the top,
First must climb the hill.
The only man in our Class
Who shares his life with child and wife.
Entertains the boys day by day
XVith different games and funny plays Q
When he to his l1ome does Hee,
Tricks in his room are played with glee.
Fill his poor head full of figures and facts,
Keep on a-jamming them in till it cracks g
Once boys grew up at a rational rate,
Now we develop a man while you wait 5
Rush him through college, compel him to grab
Of every known subject a dip and a dab.
If half as attentive in studies,
As he is in playing his tricks,
This man, an able scholar,
VVould make, in time methinks.
This Ritter is at peculiar lad,
The mustache is his greatest fad g
Once it is, then it is not,
To be or not to be, is the question of this plot
I know not, I ask not,
If love's in that heart g
I but know that I love
771ee, whatever thou art.
He had a vein of sentiment,
And though he was a gentle swain,
He found when he a-wooing went,
His sentiment was all in vain.
From morn to noon, and noon to night,
This young man, his studies delight.
Oh ! what a tangled web We Weave,
NVhen first We practice to deceive.
You did deny me love-have you no woe?
No pain, to share with one who loves you so?
A musician, an artist, a poet is he,
A comedian he ought to be.

Menagerie of 'o5'.
Reserved and quiet in his ways,
May he happily spend his days.
Standing at the foot,
Gazing at the sky,
How can you get np,
If you never try?
Now boys just give me half a chance
At a frolic, or other good time 3
Illl just show you how to dance,
And take my place way up the line.
If you want an honored name,
If you want a spotless fame,
Let your words be kind and pure,
And your tower shall endure,
Tall and stately he Walks the hall,
Solemn and reserved to all.
All things may come to those who Wait,
W'ithout exerting muscle,
But you will ind they come too late,
Unless you go and hustle.
A studions and industrious man,
He does his duty whenever he can.
His lips are very mild and meek g
Tho' one should smite him on tl1e cheek
And on the mouth, he will not speak.
An all around good fellow,
A thoughtful looking lad,
We predict for him success,
When he leaves the place a grad.
Neck-tie neat, fine new collar,
Hat that cost at least a dollar.
Within the flowing bowl
He tried to drown his trouble,
And then, upon my soul,
He saw that it was double.
Now this young gent a friend advises,
When in the morning he arises g
To be more quiet in his ways,
And not let out so many " brays,"
Always jolly and contented,
Cap's " a favorite with all.
Try to be cheerful,
Never be fearful,
Or think that the sky will fall.
Let the sky tumble,
Fear not the rumble,
It can never hurt you at all.
No matter if things aren't just as you like,
Be brave, little lad g
We can not be always as happy as larks
Supplied with the best to be had.
He is l1ere, he is there, he's all around,
In sports he takes delight 3
And if a beautiful girl he meets,
A smile lights up his face so bright.
There's a girl-I'cl like to hug her,
For she's surely " it,"
She is like the grocer's sugar,
Sweet and full of grit.
Champion pole-vaulter of the Sophomore Class
Whom none in the college dare surpass.
Have more than thou knowest,
Speak less than thou showest.
Iniposing in appearance,
He forbids all interference.
You can ride a horse to water,
But you can not make him drink,
You can write a " Laiin Pony,"
But you can not make him think.

XVhate'er you think, vvhate'er you do,
Wl1ate'er you purpose or pursue,
It may be small but must be true.
Always a Word of greeting
To all perchance who meet him.
Not too fresh, is a good advice
For him that is not overly wise.
To him is a spirit brave and hold,
His deeds shall not remain untold.
He is a little bit shy,
But on the stage he's sly.
Now if this young man gets musical,
VVe can not blame him much g
For his room-mate is a wonder,
'With his exquisite musical touch.
He is sleepy in his looks and walk,
Very seldom seen to talk.
To be more than I am
I'll be if I can.
On little wings,
Bear little souls to heaven.
If a task is once begun,
Never leave it till it's done 3
Be the labor great or small,
Do it Well, or not at all.
Dare to do right ! Dare to be true !
The failings of others can never save you g
Stand by your conscience, your honor, your faith
Stand by a hero and battle till death.
His name is peculiar, and so is the lad,
Singing is his fad.
An idler is a Watch that wants both hand
As useless if it goes as if it stands.
I roam about from place to place,
And go through college on my face.
He posseses a smattering knowledge,
Of evolution and higher criticism 3
And loves to show his ignorance
In all the other isms.
Quick on his feet a ru11ner of fame,
Haasen Peffer " his favorite Game.
Opportunities are opportunities only to him who is ready
Diving, and finding no pearls in the sea, '
Blame not the ocean, the fault is in thee.
I never use tobacco, no 'tis a filthy weed,
I'll simply put it in my pipe and smoke it after fe
The blest gods do not love
Ungodly actions g but respect the right,
And in tl1e works of pious men delight.
I am sometimes thrown into a lit,
Simply on account of Adam's rib.
A little bit funny,
A terror to johnny."
They knew not how he learned at all,
For idly, hour by hour,
I-Ie sat and watched the dead leaves fall,
Or mused upon a common flower.
Do not make a poor excuse,
Waiting, weak, unsteady g
All obedience worth the name,
Must be prompt and ready.
Here is a soldier whom all must applaud 3
VVho fought many battles at home and abroad.
But the hottest engagement which made him sore
Was the foot-ball conquest with the Sophomores.
Do what conscience says is right 5
Do what reason says is best g
Do with all your mind and might g
Do your duty and beblest.
A robust man with a heavy voice.
His famous expression, " Get into it, boys."
My favorite trick, and nothing is better,
To do my companions in " Haasen Pelferft
Of him we hardly know what to say,
He goes about ,things in a peculiar way.
Oh I that I from my studies were freed,
Then let me read, read, read.
This man is wfiss, not wise,
In some things not nice g
Does not know how to cut ice.
Not a great thinker
But a mighty sprinter.

" KEEP " WELL.
The only piano that is really Worth buying is the one that will "keep"'
well, the one that is so good and carefully built as to retain its goodness
unimpaired for a very long term of years. The conditions of modern
piano making are, in many cases, unfavorable to the production of
instruments that fill this requirement Many piano makers pay more
attention to the production of instruments that they can sell at what is
called a "popular price" than to putting in the qualities that ensure last-
ingness. YVe have spent many years in studying pianos and our judgment
in relation to them is seldom at fault. We- feel safe, therefore, in saying
that every piano offered in this store has lasting, permanent goodness, is
what is termed in popular parlance as " a stayerf' Some of our pianos are
sold at really low prices, others are held at relatively much higher rates
but all are in the best sense of the word, reliable.
