IME brings with it changes, changes in all spheres of life and activity, educational as well as physical. And
what if there be no changes? The onward march and progress of human civilization would be at a stand-
still, and would seem to have attained its coveted goal.
So looking round about us we see a great arena in which the combatants are the institutions of learning, each
striving to give to its students the best training possible. On looking more closely We see our own institution a con-
testant striving to advance. One sphere of this advance is now visible to the eye, so that ere long farewell shall be
said to the walls of " Old Muhlenberg" and those of a more modern and " Greater Muhlenberg " greeted.
In consequence of this We decided to make our annual a memorial number to " Old Muhlenberg." It is how-
ever not merely a history, but we have also tried to give to all those interested an insight of the life We spent here
the past year.
The task of gathering, and sifting, and shaping the material was indeed very difficult, but by continually
trying and persevering, we have it in its present form, Which, as all mortal works, is yet imperfect. So after having
tried to satisfy all, we now cast the burden from our shoulders into the stream of time and public approval and
VVith these few remarks We present this " Memorial Volume " of the Class of 1905 to the Faculty, Alumni,
students, and friends of Muhlenberg.
Begging your leniency, I have the honor to be your most devoted and humble servant.

History of Muhlenberg College.
UHLENBERG has now for thirty-seven years been contending with the demand for higher education, from
the same fortifications and with the same weapons, but as in modern warfare, inventions and changes have
' necessitated a change of former equipments, so has our institution been led to build new and modern fortifi-
cations from which to fight this modern and increasing demand of civilization, So while, before another
year has rolled by, this old fortress shall be no more, we have included here a full account of its existence, its staff of
instructors, together with pictures of its apartments, especially such as were the scenes of the great contests of
students with professors, and lessons and each other.
This task was not so easy as many of the former instructors are scattered throughout the country While others
are no longer sailing upon life's great ocean but have anchored their frail barks. In face of all this we tried our best
and include the photos of all we were able to obtain, and such few as do not appear we failed to get.
It is true some of this history has been published before but always in fragments, and we hope this volume
will go forth bearing some pleasant messages both of the past and the present to all the sons of Muhlenberg who have
once been under the shadow of her walls. If this is so our work shall not have been in vain, and we shall feel
We are very sorry to have lost through death our respected, honored, and scholarly President, Dr. Seipg and we
here also include an account of his life, his work for the institution, and his funeral. We also wish to express our
sincere thanks to all especially Dr. Ochsenford, who so willingly aided us in compiling this history of "Old Muhlen-
berg" which now greets you.

History of Muhlenberg College.
DR, S. E. OCHSENFORD.
UHLENBERG COLLEGE, Allentown, Pa., was founded in 1867, to meet a want long felt by many of the
pastors and lay members of the Lutheran Church in Eastern Pennsylvania, where the Lutheran population
is very strong, but where they had no institution of their own for the higher education of their young
people. It was felt by many that a college under Lutheran control was needed, should be established, and could be
maintained. The institution, therefore, is a Church School, but it is by no means to be regarded, 'on this account, as
sectarian. It is a Christian institution of higher education, established and maintained for the Christian training of
Muhlenberg College, as at present organized, is the successor of the "Allentown Seminaryf' 1848-64, and
" Allentown Collegiate Institute and Military Academy," 1864-67. The. College was named in honor of Henry
Melchoir Muhlenberg, the Patriarch of Lutheranism in America.
The course of study, adopted at the beginning of the history of the College, was like those of similar institu-
tions at that time, and has ever since been maintained on a par with the best institutions of the State. As improve-
ments have been made by our colleges throughout the country in raising the standard of admission and graduation.
as well as in additions to the studies of the college course, so Muhlenberg has made various improvements in this
direction so as to maintain its equality with other institutions of the country and maintain its rank in the educational
progress of America. It now offers two courses g the one, the regular four years' classical or culture course, leading
to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, the other, a four years' scientific course, leading to the degree of Bachelor of
Science. Its standard is equal to that of any of the institutions with which it is surrounded and with which it
naturally comes into competition. That this is not an idle boast, but a well attested fact can be seen by an examina-
tion of the catalogue of the College. A 1
The first faculty had as its head the Rev. Frederick A. Muhlenberg, D. D., LL. D. He was then in the prime
of life, came to the new College with many years of experience as a successful teacher and with the reputation of being
one of the best Greek scholars of his time. His high standing as an educator and a scholar gave at once a prom-
inence and character to the College, which it has ever since maintained. He remained at the head of the institution
until the close of the year 1876, when he was succeeded, in the Presidency, by the Rev. Benjamin Sadtler, D. D.,
another ine scholar and a successful educator. He remained until the close of the year 1885 when, disabled by a fall
on the ice, he retired from the active duties of life, and was succeeded by the Rev. Theodore L. Seip, D. D., who
assumed the presidency on January 1, 1886, after having gone through nearly all the departments of the College in
the earlier years of his connection with the institution. Like the first President, he was an excellent Greek scholar,
a man of wide experience in educational matters, a successful teacher, and endowed with excellent administrative
qualities. Under his administration the College made its greatest strides forward, through his influence in educa-
tional circles became widely known as a College of high standing and good conservative qualities, enjoyed an increase
in the number of students, the amount of endowment and in financial solidity. The seventeen years of Dr. Seip's
Presidency were the most successful years in the history of the College. So great has been the success that it has
become possible and even necessary, for the future work of the College, to arrange for the enlargement of the College
and the expansion of its equipment by securing larger grounds and more commodious buildings. His life was
spared until the beginning had been made in this work of expansion, and he could participate in the laying of the
corner-stones of two of the new buildings on the new college site. But in the midst of this new work he was stricken by
the fatal disease that removed him from the scenes of his busy and active life of thirty-six years in connection with
the institution whose affairs he so wisely and successfully administered during the latter years of his life.
In view of the fact that the institution will in the near future be removed from its old location to the new
grounds in the western part of the City, it may prove of special interest to give a brief account of the modest and
unassuming building which has for more than a third of a century housed Muhlenberg College and which has become
hallowed with memories of the past to the Alumni and friends of the College. The original building, in which the
Allentown Seminary was opened in 1848, and which was afterwards remodelled and became the east wing of the col-
lege building, was a large, double, two-story stone building, known as " Livingstone Mansion." It was surrounded
by an extensive lawn on the south, a beautiful grove on the north, and by vacant grounds on the east and west sides.
It was at one time the property of the Livingstones, relatives of the Allens, the founders of the City which bears
their name. The two-story mansion served the purposes of the Seminary for several years 5 but in 1851 the number
of pupils had increased to such an extent as to necessitate enlarged accommodations. Accordingly, during the sum-
mer of that year, a new building was erected, which now forms the west wing of the college building, and is used as
the residence of the President of the College. A few years later more room was needed, and in 1854 the central
building of four stories, occupying the space between the east and west wings, was erected, and " Livingstone Man-
sion " was raised to three stories. The several buildings thus united present a front of 130 feet and a depth of forty
feet. After the property had passed into the hands of the stockholders of the college, in 1867, it was found neces-
sary to alter the building to adapt it to the new arrangements, and to erect an additional building. Accordingly, an
addition was erected at the rear of the central building, one hundred feet long and five stories high. ' The various
parts, erected at different times, are thus united and constitute one building, four stories in front and Eve in the rear,
with rooms for the accommodation of students, with a chapel, recitation, library, and reading rooms. In these con-
gested quarters the work of the College has been carried on in the past. The new buildings on the new grounds will
better accommodate the professors and students and will enable the institution to carry on its work more comfortably
and still more successfully,
Rev. Frederick A. Muhlenberg, D. D.

EV. FREDERICK A. MUHLENBERG,
December 31, 1876, was born at Lancaster, Pa., August 25 1818 and died at Reading Pa M h
, , g, ., arc 21, IQOI.
He was pre-eminently a child of the Lutheran Church and a descendant of distinguished ancestry. His
great-grandfather was the Rev. Dr. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg the pioneer and patriarch of the Lutheran Ch h
in America, his grandfather was the Rev. Dr. Henry Ernst Muhlenberg, the distinguished botanist, and his father
was Frederick Au t . M hl ' ' ' ' '
gus us u enberg, M. D., an eminent physician His mother was Eliza, granddaughter of the
Rev. I. Helfrich Sehaurn, a Lutheran pastor laboring for many years in Pennsylvania. In 1833, after a preparatory
D. D., President of Muhlenberg College September 1, 1867 to
training in the Lancaster County Academy, he entered the Sophomore Class of Pennsylvania College, at Gettysburg,
Pa., at the age of fifteen years, but remained there for only a year. In 183 5 he entered Jefferson College, at Canons-
burg, Pa., graduating in 1836. He spent the year 1837-38 at Princeton Theological Seminary, and after teaching
for a time in a private academy at Lancaster, in 1838 he became professor in Franklin College, at Lancaster, Where he
remained until 1850. In the same year he became the Franklin Professor of Ancient Languages at Pennsylvania
College, where he soon distinguished himself as one of the foremost Greek scholars in the country. Wliile at Gettys-
burg, in the year 1854, he entered the ministry, having been ordained by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, and fre-
quently preached in the College Church.
In 1867 he was called as the first President of Muhlenberg College, established at Allentown, in that year, by
a number of Lutherans and others who were deeply interested in the matter of higher education in Eastern Pennsyl-
vania. After Hrst declining the call, he accepted it and began his labors on the first of September. He found his
new labors most diflicult, but his untiring efforts, his distinguished scholarship, soon manifested themselves in the
success which attended his labors and in organizing a college of which no one need be ashamed. -The beginning was
made with inadequate buildings, with no money and no endowment and with a fevv students, several of Whom had
-come with Dr. Muhlenberg from Gettysburg. The first faculty consisted of Dr. Muhlenberg as President and Pro-
fessor of Greek, Mental and Moral Sciences and Evidences of Christianity g Rev. Edward J. Koons, Vice-President
.and Professor of Mathematics, Astronomy and Physics, Rev. William R. Hofford, Professor of Rhetoric, Logic,
English Literature and Political Economy, Rev. joseph F. Fohs, Professor of I-Iistoryg Rev. Hans N. Riis, Profes-
sor of German 5 Theodore C. Yeager, M. D., Professor of Chemistry and Botany 5 Rev. Theodore L. Seip, Principal of
the Academic Department and Assistant Professor of Greek, and Secretary of the Faculty.
After nine years of hard and faithful and successful service at Muhlenberg, Dr. Muhlenberg resigned the
presidency, in 1876, and accepted the Professorship of Greek in the University of Pennsylvania. He resigned this
position in 1888 and resided in Philadelphia, engaging in church work and using his well-earned leisure in literary
labors. In I8QO he removed to Reading, Pa., but in 1891, at the urgent request of many of his friends, he tempor-
arily assumed the duties of the Presidency of Thiel College, Greenville, Pa., where he labored faithfully for two
years, but then resigned and lived in retirement at Reading, until his death. But even in his retirement, he was not
inactive, engaging in church Work. All who knew him were benehted " by his ripe Christian experience, his ripe-
scholarship, his faithful attendance upon the means of grace, his active promotion of the Welfare of the Church and
his never failing kindness of heart."
Rev. Benjamin Sadtler, D. D.
DR. S. E. OCHSENFORD.
A EV. BENJAMIN SADTLER, D. D., President of Muhlenberg College, january 1, 1877 to December 31,
1885, was born in Baltimore, Md., December 25, 1823, died at Atlantic City, N. I., April 28, IQOI, and was
buried at Baltimore, May 1, 1901. Dr. Sadtler came from an old German family which had settled in Balti-
more in the latter half of the eighteenth century. His parents were Philip B. and Catharine Sadtler. He graduated
at Gettysburg in 1842, studied theology at the same place and was licensed to preach in 1844. He was pastor at
Pine Grove, Pa., 1845-49, at Shippensburg, Pa., 1849-53g Middletown, Pa., 1853-565 St. John's, Easton, Pa.,
1856-623 President of Lntherville Female College, 1562-76, and President of Muhlenberg, 1877-85, having been
disabled by a fall on the ice.
He administered the aifairs of Muhlenberg with characteristic zeal and succeeded in steering the institution
successfully through the trying years succeeding the panic throughoutithe entire Lehigh Valley. In 1886 he removed
to Baltimore, Where he lived in retirement, though constantly engaged in contributing valuable articles to the
periodicals of the Lutheran Church. In addition to numerous synodical appointments, Dr. Sadtler served as trustee
of Pennsylvania College from 1862-1877, from which institution he also received the degree of D. D., in 1867. He
published numerous discourses, historical, doctrinal and other articles. He was a scholar and Christian gentleman,
Whose presence and bearing always inspired esteem and respect. Three of his sons have attained eminence as educa-
tors. Prof. Samuel P. Sadtler, Ph. D., is one of the leading Chemists in America, and was for a number of years
identimied with the University of Pennsylvania. A second son, Prof. Benjamin Sadtler, is Professor of Metallurgy
and Mineralogy in the Colorado State Sohool of Mines, at Denver. A third son, Rev. William A. Sadtler, Ph. D.,
is Professor in the Theologiccl Seminary of the Lutheran Synod of Iowa, at Dubuque, Iowa.
OW seldom, friends, a good great man inherits,
Honor and wealth, with all his worth and pains!
It seems a story from the world of spirits
When any man obtains that which he merits,
Or any merits that which he obtains.
He always had his treasures, always friends, -
This good great man. Three treasures, - love, and light
And calm thoughts, equable as infant's breath 5
And three fast friends, more sure than day or night, -
Himself, his Maker, and the angel Death.

DR. SEIP,S RECITATION ROOM.
Rev. Theodore Lorenzo Seip, D. D.
' DR. S. E. OCHSENFORD.
EV. THEODORE L. SEIP, D. D., was President of Muhlenberg College, from January I, 1886, until his
death, November 28, 1905. Prior to his Presidency of the College he was Principal of the Academic
Department and Assistant Professor of Greek, 1867-73 3 Professor of Latin and Assistant Professor of Greek,
1873-77 5 Financial Agent, 1876-775 Professor of Greek and Latin, 1877-ASI 5 Mosser-Keck Professor of Greek,
1881-86, and during his long and successful service as President, he was Professor of Greek, Moral Sciences and
Evidences of Christianity. His administration of the affairs of the College was crowned with success in the increase
of the number of students, the expansion of the courses of studies, the adjustment of the financial affairs of the
institution and the substantial increase of the amount of endowment. And before his end came he could see the
beginning of the new and enlarged buildings of the college on its new site in the western part of the City. His
health began to fail a few years ago, but he remained active until the day he was stricken by the fatal disease that
removed him from the scenes of his life-long activity.
On Tuesday, November 24, IQO3, Dr. Seip attended to his usual duties, teaching in the morning and presiding
at the weekly faculty meeting in the afternoon, and apparently as well as he had been for some time g but at night
when about to retire he was stricken with apoplexy and shortly afterward became unconscious, in which condition
he remained until the end. He now rests from his labors, but his works do follow him. In his death the college
has lost one of its staunchest friends and the community one of its most eminent citizens.
It affords us a melancholy satisfaction to be able to present to the readers of our annual the last words written
by Dr. Seip. On Tuesday evening, November 24, shortly before he was stricken, he dictated a letter, his wife
acting as his amanuensis, in reply to a request for a greeting from the college, to be used in the Christmas number
of one of our Lutheran periodicals, expressing his regret at his inability to comply with the request. Before closing
the letter, however, he directed the following beautiful sentiment on the subject of Christian Education to be added,
having with his own hand written it on the back of an envelope, as it appears in fac-simile in this connection. We
adopt this method of preserving both the sentiment and the form in which he left his last written work.

Theodore Lorenzo Seip, a son of Reuben L. and Sarah A. Seip, was born at Easton, june 25, 1842. His
ancestors came from Germany and settled in that part of Pennsylvania which is now embraced in Northampton
County. His paternal ancestors served in the Revolutionary War and in the War of 1812. His maternal grand-
father, William Henry Hemsing, came from Philadelphia and settled at Allentown, serving as organist and teacher
of a parochial school. He married Margaretta Spinner, of Salisbury, near Allentown, and the newly-married couple
took up their residence in Livingston Mansion, which now forms the east Wing of Muhlenberg College. Later they
removed to Easton, Where the mother of the subject of this sketch was born, and where the son was also born.
His STUDENT YEARs.
The instruction of the schools, both public and private, which he attended in his native place and at Bath,
Where his boyhood was spent, was supplemented by careful home training. At the age of sixteen he entered the
Weaversville Academy to prepare for college. The academy was, at that time, in charge of Professor H. F. Savage,
a graduate of Amherst College, and a ine classical scholar. Under his faithful instruction the youth of sixteen was
introduced to the study of Latin and Greek and laid the foundation of the thorough knowledge of the classics for
which he has become so distinguished and which he taught so successfully to the end of his life.. The last hour he
spent in his recitation-room was devoted to the teaching of Greek. In the year 1859, he entered the preparatory
department of Pennsylvania College, at Gettysburg, and graduated from Pennsylvania College in I864.
During his college course the battle of Gettysburg was fought. In 1863 he joined the college company, was
mustered into service as a member of Company A, Twenty-sixth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, and served
under Major General D, N. Couch until the company was mustered out of service. The spring vacation of 1864 he
spent as a delegate in the service of the United States Christian Commission, in Tennessee and Georgia, having
charge of the office and work of the commission in the hospitals in Murfreesborough, Tenn. After his term of
service had expired at this place he was sent to the front, where General Sherman was fighting his way to Atlanta,
and ended his service at Resaca, Ga., where he ministered to the wounded of both armies. After the expiration of
his service, he returned to Gettysburg and completed his course, graduating with his class in 1864.
In the fall of 1864 he entered the newly established Evangelical Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadel-
phia. He was present at the opening of this institution and the inauguration of the faculty, being a member of the
first class that received the full three years' course in the seminary. During the spring of the year 1865 he received
an appointment as agent of the United States sanitary commission and was sent on a tour of inspection of the work
and stations in the armies under Grant in Virginia. After the expiration of his term of service he returned to the-
seminary, completed his course, graduating in June, 1867, and on the 19th of the same month was ordained to the
Ofiice of the ministry in the Lutheran Church, at Lebanon, Pa.
Hrs CoNNEcT1oN wrfrrr MUHLENBERG COLLEGE.
Already before his graduation he was called to Allentown to aid in the instruction in Allentown Collegiate
Institute, until the affairs of the institute could be closed, preparatory to the opening of the Muhlenberg College. He
accepted this unexpected call and entered upon his duties, April 25, 1867, In May of the same year, he was elected
principal of the academic department and an assistant professor of Greek. At the first meeting of the faculty he was
elected Secretary, a position which he held until he became president of the College. He served as principal of the
academic department until the year 1872, when he was elected professor of Latin, but retaining his position as
assistant professor of Greek. During the year 1876-77 he acted as financial agent of the college, its period of
greatest financial distress, and succeeded in arousing new interest for the college in th.e congregations of the Minis-
terium of Pennsylvania and in collecting many thousands of dollars for the impoverished institution, In 1877 Dr.
Muhlenberg resigned the presidency and Dr. Seip became professor of Latin and Greek. In the year 1880 he suc-
-ceeded in securing the endowment of the Mosser-Keck professorship of Greek and was elected to the professorship
of the Greek language and literature,
- Hrs PRESIDENCY.
Dr. Muhlenberg was succeeded by Rev. Dr. Sadtler as president of the College. The latter served in this
capacity until the year 1885, when he resigned and retired from the active duties of life. All eyes were now turned
to Dr. Seip as the man best fitted for the vacancy, and in the same year he was unanimously elected to the presidency,
assuming the duties of his oiofice January 1, 1886. Dr. Seip had helped to organize the College, prepare its courses
of studies and had passed through nearly all the departments of the institution as an instructor. He, therefore,
came to this new position as a well-experienced teacher, a finished scholar and an excellent disciplinarian. The
wisdom of the board has been amply attested by the great suceess of the College during Dr. Seip's presidency, The
courses of studies have been amplihed and improved, the numberof students has largely increased and the financial
condition has been placed on a solid basis. Dr. Seip's fine scholarship has given the institution an excellent reputa-
tion among other institutions of learning. To-day, Muhlenberg College is known as one of the best institutions of
learning in the Lutheran Church in America, and is regarded by many as the representative Lutheran College. He
lived' long enough to see the beginning of that expansion of the College for which he had been working for many
years. Greater Muhlenberg has been made possible through his efforts, self-sacrificing labors and his wise plans for
the best interests of the institution to which he gave his entire active life.
Dr. Seip was also active in bringing the College into closer relation with other colleges and universities of the
conntry. In 1887 he was active in founding the College Association of Pennsylvania. I-Ie, was the hrst chairman of
its executive committee and was continued in the office until he declined re-election. He was also, by appointment
of the Governor, a member of the University Council of Pennsylvania, to which position he was re-appointed during
the last year.
Dr. Seip held numerous oflicial positions in the Church, as president of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, a
member of the examining committee of the same body, and for a number of years the chairman of this committee.
He was a delegate to the General Council for a number of years, and had again been elected a delegate to 1903 con-
vention, having received the highest number of votes at the last meeting of the Ministerium g but failing health pre-
vented him from attending the convention. He has written the history of the College for numerous local and more
general publications, also numerous articles for the periodicals of the church, especially the Lzziheravz and Clzzarcfr
Reviewf History of the College Association of Pennsylvania, in 1887, one of the introductory articles in the
Quarter-Centennial Memorial Volume of Muhlenberg College, published in 1892.
Besides the usual academic degrees, Dr. Seip was honored with the degree of Doctor of Divinity by the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania in 1886. He was a member of the American Institute of Christian Philosophy, the Ameri-
can Society of Church History, the American Society for the Extension of University Teaching, and other learned
bodies. In his earlier years he took an active part in the work of these associations tending to advance the interests
A few years ago Dr. Seip made an extensive tour through England, France, Switzerland and Germany, visit-
ing many places of interest, but paying special attention to the institutions of learning in England and on the Conti-
nent. During the same tour he represented the Lutheran Ministerium of Pennsylvania at the bi-centennial of the
University of Halle and took part in the ceremonies connected with that celebration.
The nearest surviving relatives of the deceased are his widow, Mrs. Rebecca Cnee Keckl, two children, Dr..
Howard S., and Annie Elizabeth, three grandchildren and one brother and two sisters.
Hrs Success IN LIFE,
It is eminently ntting that reference should be made to the success with which Dr. Seip met during his busy
active life of sixty-one years, thirty-six of which were spent in connection with the institution with whose entire
history he was identified. The brightest pages of Muhlenberg's history are those that record the events of his
presidency, the extensions of its influence, the expansion of its work, the soundness of its policy and the substantial
increase of its financial support. All these belong to the seventeen years during which he stood at the head of the
College. Eminent and successful as he was as president, he was no less eminent and successful as a teacher. I-lisa
fine, polished and nnished scholarship in the classics and other branches taught in a college course, made him an
interesting and successful teacher. As astudent under him in the earlier years of his career, the writer bears-
cheerful testimony to the thoroughness of his teaching and the ability with which he handled every subject brought
to his attention. He possessed the rare gift of inspiring his students with a love for the subject studied. As a
teacher he occupied a prominent place among the best teachers of our state and country.
A TRIBUTE or Esrni-aM.
Closer than that of teacher, he occupied the place of an advisor and friend to the writer of this sketch. At
an early period in his life brought into intercourse with Dr. Seip, and associated with him in synodical work as an
oflicer of the Ministerium, and in college work as a member of the Board of Trustees for a number of years, and
latterly as a member of the Faculty, Dr. Seip became a close friend g and during all these years has always been found
to be a safe advisor, a staunch friend, and a companion of inestimable worth. These words of praise are none too
high for the man whose death we deplore, whose worth we eulogize and whose friendship we cherish. His place in
this community and especially in the College will be hard to ill. But no matter who will take his place, his influence
for good will long be felt in the completion of the work which he began. The work of Muhlenberg College, at its
new location, will go on in the future and we hope with increased prosperity 5 but if Muhlenberg is to remain true to
itself it will always bear the impress of the man whose whole active life was devoted to the advancement of a higher
How BEST TO APPRECIATE Hrs Worm.
The members of our Lutheran congregations and the friends of a higher Christian education ought to show
their appreciation of the self-sacrihcing and arduous labors of Dr. Seip for the advancement of true education in gen-
eral and for the success of Muhlenberg College in particular, by coming to the help of the College at this critical
period of its history, iniorder to participate in the realization of the wider influence and greater success for which
Dr. Seip had been planning for years. Willirig hands and open hearts should be found everywhere on the territory
of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, among its one hundred and thirty thousand members, ready to come to the help
of the College, to further the new enterprise upon which it has entered, and to assist in bringing about that success
in the future which the College deserves. The College, through an inscrutable dispensation of Divine Providence,
has been deprived of its executive and chief advisor. This happened at a time when the College could least spare
his counsel and guidance. This is all the more reason why the friends of the College should rise as one solid body
and come to its help, in order to prevent any injury to the success which the institution may have received from the
death of its president at this time and, on the other hand, in order to aid in making the work of the College in the
future even more successful than it has been in the past.
FUNERAL SERVICES AND BURIAL.
The funeral of Dr. Seip was held from his residence in the west Wing of Muhlenberg College on Thursday, Decem-
ber 3, 1903. Hundreds of persons called at the home and paid their last respects, many coming from a distance.
The remains presented a life-like appearance and lay in a handsome black-cloth covered casket, square with
columns, with antique silver extension bar handles with a name plate corresponding. Upon the plate was inscribed i
REV. THEODORE L. SEIP, D. D.,
PRESIDENT on IVIUHLENBERG CGLLEGE,
' Born June 25, 1842.
Died November 28, 1903.
The remains reposed in the handsome casket, draped in the robes of his office. The body lay in state from 9
A. M., until 1.30 P. M.
During the morning a large number of visiting clergymen, prominent in the affairs of the Lutheran Church,
and members of the Alumni of Muhlenberg College and graduates of the Mt. Airy Theological Seminary arrived and
paid their respects to their former beloved preceptor and president. Many were deeply affected and showed the high
esteem in which Dr. Seip was held. The services at the house were simple. In fact, the services all through were
of a simple character.
SERVICE AT THE HoUsE.
The remains were surrounded by beautiful floral tributes. Some of the oierings were the finest ever seen at a
funeral in this city. With all, however, there was an air of simplicity and dignity all which were characteristic of
the lamented president. The service at the house was conducted by Rev. C. J. Cooper, D. D., Treasurer and Finan-
cial Agent of the College. The College Glee Club sang a selection after which the Scripture lesson taken from the
first Epistle of St. Paul to the Thessalonians, the first chapter from the first to the eleventh verses was read by the
clergyman. After the brief services the casket was closed and the cortege formed for the services in St. john's Luth-
eran Church on South Fifth street. Hundreds of persons had assembled about the College while the procession was
formed. First came the family and relatives, followed by the Board of Trustees of Muhlenberg College. The latter
were followed by the Alumni, the students according to their classes and then the clergy and friends of the deceased.
The graduates of the Mt. Airy Seminary who are also graduates of Muhlenberg College, preceded the students in the
order of the march. The different bodies met in the recitation rooms before the services began so that there was no
confusion and the proceedings passed off with the utmost reserve, all of which were in perfect harmony with the tastes
and wishes of Dr. Seip. The Board of Trustees of the institution met in the recitation room of the late President,
the Alumni and students in the chapel and the clergy and friends in the recitation room of the Rev. S. E. Ochsen-
ford, D. D. '
SERVICE AT THE CHURCH.
The casket was carried to the hearse by the pallbearers who were all members of the Faculty of Muhlenberg
College. Q They were Rev. William Wackernagel, D. D., Rev. john A. Bauman, Ph, D., Rev. S. E. Ochsenford, D. D.,
Rev. Jacob Steinhaeuser, D. D., Geo, T. Ettinger, Ph. D., William R. Whitehorne, Ph. D., and John Lear, A. M.,
M. D. While the remains were being taken into the church the organist, C. A. Marks, rendered Chopinis funeral
march and to the solemn strains of the music upon the large organ the remains were taken up the main aisle to the
chancel. The casket was uncovered. Inside the chancel were the officiating clergymen gowned in the robes of the
Lutheran Church. They were the Rev. F. J. F. Schantz, D. D., of Myerstown, President of the Evangelical Luth-
eran Ministerium of Pennsylvania and adjacent states, Rev. Professor G. F. Spieker, D. D., of the Lutheran The-
ological Seminary, of Philadelphia, Rev. G. F. Krotel, D. D., LL. D., of New York City, the editor of The Laik-
cnzn, and the Rev. S. A. Repass, D. D., pastor of the family and St. John's Lutheran Church. The burial services,
according to the ritual of the Lutheran Church, were followed. They consisted of the reading of a Psalm, reading
of the Scripture lessons, prayer and responses by the choir. This part of the service was conducted by Rev. F. J. F.
Schantz, D. D., and Rev. Professor G. F. Spieker, D. D. The sermon was delivered by the Rev. S. A. Repass, D. D.,
who selected for his text the eleventh verse. of the hfth chapter of St. Paul's first Epistle to the Thessalonians,
" Wherefore comfort yourselves together and edify one another." The Rev. G. F. Krotel, D. D., LL. D., then
delivered an address upon the life-work of Dr. Seip. During the service two hymns were song by the choir. They
were, " My Faith Looks Up to Thee " and " Jerusalem the Glorious." The choir also rendered as an anthem, a
choral from the oratorio " St. Paul," by Mendelssohn, entitled " To Thee, O Lord, I Yield my Spirit." After the
service and benediction the casket was taken into the vestibule andthe lid was removed to give the relatives, friends
and fellow-workers of the late president of Muhlenberg College one more opportunity to view the remains.
A feature of this service was the fact that Rev. Dr. G. K. Krotel, LL. D., ofNew York City, who assisted, is
the only living instructor of the Mt. Airy Theological Seminary, who taught the Rev. Dr. S. A. Repass, D. D., and
the late Rev. T. L. Seip, D. D.
AT THE GRAVE.
The interment was private in Fairview Cemetery. Rev. Williani Wackernagel, D. D., a member of the
Faculty of Muhlenberg College, and Professor of German and History, and Rev. S. A. Ziegenfuss, D. D., of Ger-
mantown, Secretary of the Board of Trustees, conducted the services at the grave. The committal service was read
by Rev. Dr. 'Wackernagel and the benediction pronounced by the Rev. Dr. Ziegenfuss.

I had already noticed in the newspapers.
I was unfortunately away from home for several days at
that time, and for that reason unable to attend the funeral
I regret that I could not have had the opportunity of
joining with his other friends in an expression of my respect

in Pennsylvania. I have been associated with Dr. Seip as a
fellow member of the College and University Council ever

brought us into specially intimate relations, our entire inter-

acquaintance with members of his immediate family, I shall
be indebted to you if you will, in your own way, express my
sympathy to them, or the proper persons among them. I
understand very well that all expressions of sympathy on such
accasions have a very perfunctory sound, but on the other
hand, the relatives and friends of a good man are entitled to
know something of the extent of which he is appreciated by
those who have come in contact with him in less personal and

URING the thirty-six years of the life of Muhlenberg College the Ministerium of Pennsylvania has not been
5 entirely neglectful of her wants. The College was started with nothing. Faith, opportunity, and sense of
duty brought it to what it is and stands for to-day. Prior to this the Lutheran Ministerium had shares in
Pennsylvania College, but all the endowments which it then owned had to be given up when the professors were
withdrawn and a beautiful private institution in this city was bought and enlarged. This from the very beginning
was insulhcient to meet thederuands of the student body, and contrivances were made to get along in the best Way
possible. With small donations and little support from the people at large which it deserved, the College at present
has a status not at all discouraging. But a few years ago the question was whether the institution was to be
improved or neglected, whether it should continue to grow and increase or whether it should decline and perish.
Are matters so serious? Can not our College struggle on in coming years as it has done thus far? We answer No.
" Long the ' public ' waited to catch the bright ray." This institution has reached a crisis in its history. The
-change in the circumstances of life in our generation is so great as to demand advanced and improved conditions.
In any department of business and industry in which this fact is not recognized, there is loss and ultimate failure.
In this the colleges are no exception. They must be up to the advanced condition of things else, they will lose their
patronage and thereby augment that of the modern, well equipped institution.
The new buildings and greater facilities are for a sign or guarantee of pleasure, comfort, and enlightenment in
themselves. But these classic and time-worn walls which still surround and shelter us, here, in the spot that has
become sacred with the constant dissemination of principle and truth, are the ramparts that have stood nrm in the
numerous trials, now nerving and braving all those in kinship as recipients of knowledge or sharers in its glory to a
sincere devotion and stern contest in a greater sphere and a new era.
" As man, considered in himself is helpless and beset with dangers, so is every college that is resting upon
herself and her own powers. It has always been and we hope it will continue to be the comfort of Muhlenberg,
while she was subject to so many misfortunes, that she is under the care of one who directs and manages everything,
and who knew the assistance of which she stood in need."

REV. JOHN A. W. HAAS, D. D.
The new President of Muhlenberg College
Rev. John A. W. Haas, D. D.
g Q R. JOHN A. W. HAAS is one of the foremost scholars and educators of the Lutheran Church in
America. He is Secretary of the General Council's Committee on Education, which embraces within
itself the heads of all colleges, and seminaries within the bounds of the General Council. With Prof.
H. E. Jacobs, D. D., he is the editor of that standard work of our Church, Tke Lufbemn Cyclopedia, He is the
author of St. Mark of the'Lutheran Commentary, and of two of the most widely read books published in the Luth-
eran Church within the last few years, namely, Bible Liferaiure, and Biblical Cfiiicism. He is an authority recognized
in European Universities in the fields of Ethics and Historical Criticism. He is the successful founder and organ-
izer of the Lutheran New Testament Society of New York, and is in living touch with such German University Pro-
fessors as Dr. Johannes Kunze, Dr. Theodore Zahn, and Dr. O. Zoeckler.
" Dr. Haas is an accurate and accomplished linguist, and in the University of Pennsylvania where he grad-
uated in 1883 he was awarded the matriculate Greek prize of the Hrst rank and the Junior Greek prize. Dr. Haas
graduated at the Philadelphia Seminary in 1887, and completed his education at the University of Leipzig, Germany,
in 1887 and 1888.
" Dr. Haas is now 41 years of age, with the best years of his life before him, and with a capacity for techni-
cal scholarship of the highest rank and for hard practical work in executive lines, which are extraordinary. He
combines in himself the accomplishments of the learned scholar, the popular orator, and the personal and warm-
hearted friend. -
" Dr. Haas is a son of the late John C. Haas, for many years teacher and organist of the Old Zion's and St.
Michael's Lutheran Congregation of Philadelphia, and inherits to an unusual degree the teaching instincts, and peda-
gogical insight of his father. He is married to a sister of Mr. George D. Boschen, a prominent young Lutheran of
New York, and a successful publisher. Dr. Haas is held in highest respect and esteem by all our Lutheran New
York clergy, young and old, who speaking from the knowledge of intimate contact, are of the opinion that he is the
man for the place and the hour." .

At our pace they can not go,

THE SENIORS' FAREWELL
OT a student disturbed the Senior band,
As they slowly walked thru the halls 3
For they thot alone of the farewell sad,
They'd say to the College Walls.
They walked alone in the dead of night,
Their footsteps slow and measured,
While they sadly spoke, in the dim gas light
Of the things they so highly treasured.
But now, alas, the time has come-
Oh, why be compelled to say it !-
We've lingered here for manyla month
And now at last we must leave it !
Farewell I O College walls to-day,
Farewell I Professors dear !
For, for your kindness we would lay
The bonds of Friendship here.
And now, dear classmates, 0116 and all,
No more have we to tell,
In the battle of life We'll rise or fall,
So, now, to all, " Farewell ! 'l

Junior Class History.
N a short time, the third act of the drama of college life will have been played. There is a brief intermission
awaiting us, after which we shall for the last time appear before the footlights. Thus Father Time hurries us
ever onwards. We are willing enough to hasten through some scenes of the play, but there are others upon
which we would fain tarry, but the speed never slackens, on we move until the end, And thus we End ourselves in
the Junior year, that best of all the years of one's college life.
We have fought a hard fight g the villian is slain g the heroine is won. We would throw aside the helmet and
buckler, the lance and the trusty blade, and would seek to court " ye ladye faire." But it is not wholly thus to be.
Between the flashes of the blade, the groans of the dying, come the shafts of King Cupid, the tender whisperings
But History treats rather of the past, than the future, we must therefore turn backwards, not forwards, that
our mission may be fulfilled. The pen has already told of our arrival upon these, the scenes of our college life. It
has told of the great number that we entered fand how that number has decreased directly as the square of the timel,
how we bravely held the stairs, until overpowered, in our Sophomore year, how we left the Freshies dead and
wounded upon the gridiron, and how in our Freshman year we left the diamond with champion banners iiying high.
But these are all scenes that have been played well and received their due curtain calls, I am but restating what has
been chronicled by former historians, and it but remains for me to hasten the curtain of the last act, and then to sur-
render the pen to my successor,
During the freshly fallen snow of the past winter we enjoyed a delightful sleighride, and with no less pleasure
the last and crowning event of our Junior year, " The German, Ausflugf'
A year hence, as we plod along theqlast and roughest part of the four years' journey toward graduation, we
shall often think of these days which speed by so quickly now, and many years from now, long after We shall have
left " Old Muhlenberg," and shall 'have ventured out upon life's stormy seas, there will come back to us many a
pleasant memory of this, our Junior year.
And now the third act draws to a close, we are signaled from the wings, that the curtain is about to descend-
that our parts have been played, and as we bow to the audience our only regret is that of the terrible speed of time.

DALLIS H. BASTIAN comes first in this series of biographical sketches. The
synopsis of his short life is something like this : He was born just as most other
people have been, and during infancy no doubt cost his parents more trouble and
vexation than he was worth. As he grew up he attended his native district school,
a select school at Ruppsville and later graduated from Keystone Normal. Was
next a pedagogue in his home district, which- bers the name of' Bastian's. Pre-
pared for college privately and in 1901 became a Freshman. "
In demeanor this gentleman is very cordial, but aiiittle' proud over being able
to trace his ancestry without a missing link-wilt-lrexception of the great-grand-
father-for eleven generations. Is not a loquacious man, but explicit in state-
ment. He prefers languages to sciences and intends to take a civil service exami-
nation preparatory to entering governmental service. Admires some lady friend
and has for a long time being a regular and welcome caller at X. Mr. Bastian is
a Democrat, Enterpean, and a member of the Trexlertown Lutheran Congregation,
a distance west of Allentown, where also his home is.
WIRT A. DRIES first landed in Shoemakersville, Pa. He was raised on a
hilly farm, which accounts for the build of the man. He is namely very long up-
and-down, and so lean and lank that he must part his hair exactly in the middle
to keep his balance. Mr. Dries was a precocious child, and after having philoso-
phied on existence in general and on the man in the moon in special, he entered
Keystone Normal. His abilities were soon recognized, for he was made instructor
in history in that institution. On entering Muhlenberg, he was admitted to the
Sophomore Class, and has since made a hobby of Psychology-especially of un-
conscious cerebration.. The professors address him as Master Dries, but we who
know him call him " Pat." During his college course he shrewdly keeps his
money at home, his mind elsewhere and his heart at Kutztown. He expects
to make theology his profession, Democracy his diversion, and shredded wheat
his diet. Mr. Dries is oneiof our plesantest students, always the same whether
things .go up or down, full of class and college spirit and a member of Sophronia.
. P 91
HERBERT F. GERNERT met his parents for the first time at Trexlertown,
Pa., about nineteen or twenty years ago, and has since made his home with them.
He is a half brother of Mr. Bastian, as they do not have the same father, but each
a different mother. As he grew almost abnormally large and fat in extenso,
he was early sent to school that his inner man might keep pace with his outer.
He prepared partially for college in his home village school, entered afterwards
the preparatory department, and was initiated into the Freshman society Anno
Mr. Gernert is the giant Anteus of our Class. He is so tall that if his feet
get wet on Sunday, the cold doesn't reach his head until the following Friday or
Saturday. As a consequence he is in the habit of looking down on most people,
but we readily pardon him for that when we consider his good qualities as a student,
and social and pleasing mannersp Although musically inclined, medicine is his
calling. He will operate on all sick animals the first ten years of his practice free
of charge for the sake of reputation. In politics Mr. Gernert and Mr. Roosevelt
GEORGE E. K. GUTH was nrst greeted in South Whitehall a little more than
two decades ago. When just a few years old his parents moved to Allentown,
where, ever since he was nurtured under the parental roof. He received the hrst
rudiments of education in the schools of town. He attended the Aca-
demic Department of Muhlenberg College and later entered the college as a Fresh-
man. Although decidedly Epicurean in his manner of life, he is lean and slender
in form, yet not so as to detract from the symmetry of person. He is very
kindly disposed, always courteous and obliging. His crowning virtue is modesty
which occasionally blends into indifference and holds him forth as always of the
same cheerful disposition even in adverse moments. The study of sociology af-
fords him his greatest delight. Whenever a question is put to him as to the
nature of some of the fundamentals he makes immediate reference to the "little
especially strong in German, Latin, and Greek
We are now pleased to introduce the outer and inner man of MR.
JOHN J. HEILMAN. Look at his well formed brow and you have an in-
dex to his mind. The keynote of this gentleman is "common sense"-that most
charming and enduring of all the qualities of a real man. Related to common
sense, as well as part of it, is sound judgment. Endowed with these faculties and
schooled by the training of acollege course, Mr. Heilman is most eminently fit-
ted for the taxing position as a business manager of our CIARLA, In this work,
which requires more attention and inspection, introspection and retrospection,
circnmspection and other "spections" than anyone knows who has not tried it,
Mr. Heilman is a happy complement and safety-valve of his able, yet more viva-
cious and exuberant associate manager, Mr. Kidd. Mr. Heilman is from Wal-
berts, Pa., where he was brought up in a good family. After receiving his Bach-
elor's Degree at Muhlenberg, he will continue as such while pursuing a course in
civil engineering, very likely at U. P. Pufhng engines, railroad bridges and the
like have a fascination for him.
CHARLES G. HEFFNER owns this guileless countenance which now faces you

Fem Sem students, and as regularly returns with them 1n the evening

touch with the gentle sex has had a refining iniluence upon our friend He is

Heifner is from Lyons, Pa., graduated from Kut7town Normal and was a success
ful teacher for a number of years, and an equally successful sparker the latter of

of this gentleman to and from these meetings, and he never smokes more than

CLARENCE E. KEISER, according to documentary evidence unearthed in the
archives of Europe is a direct descendant of a pretender to a German crown. But
when the Huns, the Tartars and other savage tribes overran Europe from time to
time, the old dynasties with pretenders and all were scattered. And so the
Keisers in America have only the name and fame left. Even this came near being
lost in the year 1903, when the Freshmen tribe, akin to those mentioned above
and the most ferocious of them all, sacked every civilized principality within reach
at a time when the Keiser with a retinue of Ritters and other Reiters, with all the
Tallmen and DeLongmen-ye even, according to history, when Klines and Kidds,
-were away on a great crusade. This same tribe of marauders entered every Weiler
and Schank, drove away the Weibels and other guards, trod down the Roses,
seized all the Sophns and Kerns, and whatever, else that was Guth, until there
was hardly a Heil-men left, but only Driesch, Dormer and other lamentable Marcks
of their vandalism. He is our Editor.
IsAAc HowARD KERN was born at Hummel's Store, Pa., on a bright sum-
mer morning at a time when both his parents happened to be in Ohio on a visit.
He declares he remembers the occasion fairly well-how the old sun was peeping
through the southeast window, the birds twittering in the apple trees, people run-
ning to and fro, and how Fido and Tom fthe old catj had a big fight. Thus itis
seen that the nucleus of the future Junior was wafted into this mundane habita-
tion of mortals under very auspicious circumstances-the brightness of the day
indicating the quality of his mind as well as the complexion of his fair skin g
the singing birds betokening his melodious voice 5 the busy people.
his studious life, and the fight his democratic patriotism and " college
spirit." While yet dependent on the nipple he most studiously watched with
his large expressive eyes the bees around Hummels Store, and their modus opm-
awzdi. Thus an almost insatiable thirst for the nectar of knowledge was gradually
instilled into our friend, and after a preparatory course at Kutztown Normal, he
took up college Work proper.
In making a short sketch of the versatile HARVEY SAMUEL KIDD, KI. D. D.,
preacher, Democrat, demagogue, pedagogue, etc., etc., so many interesting pic-
tures rush into our mind that it is difficult to select. Mr. Kidd is a man of
about twenty years of age, has a splendid physique, and is, in our humble estima-
tion, the best looking fellow in our class. He early entered the preparatory De-
partment of Muhlenberg, and after some 'K dabbling in the classics and meddling
with aparatusu entered college proper. He always takes a most enthusiastic part
in all phases of college life, and constantly has so many irons in the fire, that this
bright and big man gives the impression at times of being mulfzmz ivzparwo-reversed.
Mr. Kidd is a ready talker and good in repartee, although his boomerang often
misses and returns. But we all learn by our mistakes and it is Mr. Kidd's earnest
conviction that contact with good men and women, observation of the world, and
practical life in connection with the theoretical are necessary requisites for the de-
velopment of the college student.
Man is fearfully and wonderfully made' says a good writer. Whenever
we read this sentence, we " unconsciously " think of WILLIAM H. KLINE who is
fearfully, cheerfully made. This new meteor was discovered at Maxatawny, Pa.,
about twenty-one years ago. He early manifested a remarkable skill in dancing
backwards and sidewards, and more so in the unheard of expedition with which
he could scare the wits out of the innocent chickens and calves that happened to
come into the front yard. These signs of precosity caused his parents to send
their "star" to school at an early age, but time has effaced the characters in
which the records of these times were written. 'K Billy " however has changed
since those days. His stay at Kutztown Normal and at college has made him
another man. Without a moment's notice he may begin to prance about gradually
falling into a regular and scientific " zappel tanz."
Mr. Kline is a genial and cheerful fellow, liked by everybody-the fair sex
included-is a Sophronian and expects to study Theology. He is now President
of our Class.
Another of the Class of Nineteen Five, a Class better known for its
quality than quantity, is JOHN QI. MARCKS, Esquire. This is the way he
looks except when he smiles when he looks otherwise. Once he was only a wee
little tot, and not worth the snap of a finger. The first thing he did was to cry,
and was afterwards called " John." After sojourning in this "vale of sour-
kraut and misery " for some years, attending common school in his own township,
he entered the preparatory school of Muhlenberg College, and in the fall of Igor
was admitted as a Freshman. .It is not the intention of Mr, Marcks, as someone
has claimed, to tear this world to splinters so that we have nothing to stand on.
On the contrary, quickness, modesty, and honesty are some of his characteristics.
He is also a pleasant friend and a good student-very good especially in German.
His future office will be that of a preacher. Mr. Marcks is from Wescoesville,
Pa. Here he was raised on a farm which for generations has belonged to the
same dynasty. He is an only child, and of course has his own way in most things,
including an elegant driving team, and makes regular calls, hush-h-h I
The subject of this sketch is CHARLES W. REINERT. Looks une,
doesn't he? Gf stature he is quite small, but exceptionally well proportioned
and quick as a cat. He chose Coplay as his birthplace, which shows he
possesses very good judgment when he wants to use it. It was shortly
before Christmas twenty years ago that Santa Clause dropped him down the
chimney, and as the chimney was hot, it scorched his hair. He attended Coplay
High School, and graduated from it with 'drst honors in a class of one. Follow-
ing this graduation, " Pinky," as his pet name is, entered the preparatory depart-
ment of Muhlenberg, and in 1901 College proper. Mr. Reinert is a valued
member of the Glee Club Where he sings first tenor. " What will this curlihead
make?" his close chum, Mr. Reiter was asked. "Hard to tell," came the
answer with a shake of his head, But " Pinky " says he is first going to become
a man flet us hope he will succeed some dayj, and afterwards a physician. He
is a reader and member of Euterpea.
FRANK H. REITER was born on a Saturday afternoon some twenty years ago.
. This fact he keeps steadily in mind and carefully refrains from any work on Satur-
days-or any other day-unless he forgets. Mr. Reiter is a vivacious, whole-
souled fellow of good intelligence with a fair amount of information on general
knowledge, but posted on all matters of less consequence. Frank is an enthusi-
astic sportsman, and President of Muhlenberg College Glee Club on which he
sings first tenor. This is part of one of his songs :
" He wears a window in his eye
To see his whiskers grow,
He thinks the ladies pine and die,
Because they love him so."
This " Musical " man prepared for college at Kutztown Normal, Mechan-
W I ical engineering is his chosen field of labor. Mr. Reiter is from Pennsburg and is
going to be a Democrat. Sophronia claims him among her members.
ROBERT K. ROSENBERGER was born in Allentown in 1884, just in time to I '
yell and squeal for the new president, Grover Cleveland, The Republican suck- T
lings had had full possession of the " Nipples of State " for twenty-Eve years,
and had waxed fat and satisfied, while the Democratic calves during this long
interim had been reduced to skin and bone from want of nourishment, and
exhausted from continuous bellowing. But now the latter had the vantage- ground
again, and their tails wagged most lustily. Robert continued a true Democrat for
a while but is now Republican. He was " granulated" from the Allentown High
School in IQOCI with second honor. He then entered college and took up the sci-
entific eourse. His intention is after, graduation from Muhlenberg to enter U. P.
and there study medicine. On receiving his degree, M. D., he will at once begin
surgical operations, the patients bearing the expense and the pain. Mr. Rosen-
berger is himself suffering at present from a wound iniiicted by Cupid, and prays
to Venus night and day to be propitious to him.
This is CLAUDE G. SHANKWEILER, of Allentown, Pa. Let us introduce
him with a few words of the poet :
H " With us there is a man, a yong sqnyer,
A lovyer, and a lusty bacheler,
With lokkes crulle, as they were leyed in presse.
Of twenty year of age he is, I guesse.
And bare hym wel, as of so litel space,
In hope to stonden in the lady's grace."
Mr. Shankweiler is a pleasant fellow who Ustonden in the grace" of both
ladies and gentlemen. After being graduated from the High School, he entered
Muhlenberg where he takes the classic course. He is member of a great many
organizations-various college teams, college plays, choirs, fraternities, Glee
Club, etc. All these occupations, together with his studies, have kept his face so
busy that the pipe has been entirely neglected during winter. Mr. Shankweiler
is a congenial member of the College Glee Club, singing a deep second bass.
Some three decades ago SVEN O. SIGMOND was first hailed at Havenger,
Norway. We characterize him as being six feet tall with a stout and well-rounded
form. The enormity and bold relief of his form, which probably portray the
character and relief of his native land, would indicate that he was of an irate and
passionate disposition, but on the contrary he is very calm and peaceful. He
received his early education in a normal school from which he graduated. He
'later entered Kongsgaard Gymnasium. While there a desire was awakened to
see America and together with three of his brothers he embarked for our shores.
For a year and a half he was financial agent for Pleasant View Luther College in
Illinois and was also instructor in that school for one year. '
He entered Muhlenberg College as a member of the present Junior Class.
He is very genial and courteous, in language and action very deliberate. His
mode of life shows him to be a true disciple of Epicurusg for the eating of his
meals includes the greater part of his day's work.
JOSEPH R. TALLMAN is a tall rnan from a tall city, called Tower City. He
is a direct descendant of one of the giants who composed Emperor Frederick's
greatest regiment. His fighting blood still makes itself felt on important occa-
sions, as, for instance, at elections. Dear reader, if you are a Democrat, by all
means shake hands with our friend, Mr. Tallman, before election, and you will
receive as hearty a greeting and as fine a smile as you wish for.
Mr. Tallman. is a person of more than ordinary ability and of a versability
possessed by few. Reared in a good family he had already some to begin with
when lie enlisted for higher training. He graduated from Kutztown Normal, and
entered Freshmen at Muhlenberg in Igor. He has taught several terms in the
Keystone Normal, and is a popular instructor. In college he manages to do what
but few can-to be a good student and at the same time be posted as to everybody
and everything-from the president of United States to the jockey of the race
G LUTHER WEIBEL IS a complex character. He has been a participant of
musical disturbances and outlandish noises since his youth, But he has improved,
and now knows how to " play" in the various meanings of that word. In the
nrst place he plays with the band-for money. When he gets stuck in logic or
any other study, he folds his hands on his back and plays on words. When he
wants to have a half an hour off, he plays on the kind disposition of the professors.
Again, making use of his wellformed face and good English, he plays on the
heartstrings of a class of ladies in his charge. He plays on the credulity of
Freshman, making them believe their collars are dirty long before they are so.
He plays the clarinet and other instruments. At present he says he is " playing
his cards" fora postion next year. He also plays the barber of the college
people, and, finally, plays on his own imagination, actually believing the skin-
eruption below his nose is a moustache. To feed this growth he eats "force"
six times a day. i
OW friends, I wish, upon my word,
That you'd a little sense observe,
.And not so often interrupt,
And call me very rude and rough.
For I have merely undertaken-,
True, I'd not have you n1istaken,-
I merely try to make a rhyme
-On the glorious Class of " Nineteen 'Fiveft
We're very small We'd have you know,
But as a class not very slow g
And as numbers do not always count,
It's quality I'd sing about.
'That man's our lawyer, sharp and keen,
You wouldn't think he could be mean,
His face is open as the day,
And to great fame hels led the way.
This is our great philosopher g
He thinks, and dreams and writes of X267
Bglt if you allow me a little guess
I'1l tell you that he will find success.
This one I would not have you pass,
For he's the greatest in his class 5
.At least-let me whisper it in your ear-
Mathematics to him is very dear.
TO 1 905.
Here are our civil engineers,-
You could almost tell by the shape of the ears.
Fortune-tellers, at least, would say
That to fortune they have found their way.
And now, my friends, I'll introduce
One but you'll laugh like the deuce-
For he's a doctor and, truth to tell,
Each one in the class is very well.
This, our musician, we'd have you know,
For he is one who goes sure but slow :
And now-but listen-I'll ask him to play,
" Excellent ! Excellent !" I know you will say
Here are our preachers all in a row.
You ask nie to name them, but-ah no !
'We know you will like them everyone
For they are working for God and His Son.
Now here is a fellow-just look at him 5
He seems just as full of sunshine as sin 3
I'd surely not have you think he was bad
For he's helped many a heart to be glad.
And now I shall close this little rhyme.
I hope you're not weary of scanning these lines g
But tell me, honestly, if you can,
I's not every member of 'o5 a man?

Sophomore Class History.
NE NIGHT in early fall, Zmm immivzefzie, a silent procession wended its way from the ancient doorway of
Muhlenberg College. One might have thought that it was a procession of ghosts, for " the hours of night
had grown hoar " and it was " the very witching time of night." But closer inspection revealed the fact
that these "ghosts" were very youthful, far from transparent, and, mi1'czbz'!e diem, some carried green posters,
others buckets that seemed to be heavy and the end man had a white-wash brush in his hand. Of course, when
this procession went through the streets of Allentown, the natives stared at it in amazement, asking, as Aeneas did :
Quid volz' c0nm1'sus?" This, being interpreted, in Allentown phraseology, means, " VVas maint die drup buva P"
Their curiosity was soon satisfied by following these boys and reading the posters that were put up as the procession
moved along. These " buva " were jolly Sophs, out for a little fresh air and also to post in prominent places, rules
for the good of the Freshmen, those green things that had just arrived. So this first event during the Sophomore
year was an errand of mercy. Not wishing to have people impose on these poor, young Freshmen, the Sophs
deemed it their duty to make some sacriiices and work on night turn for the good of these Freshmen babes. And
yet their work was not appreciated. " This was the most unkindest cut of all."
But the great event at the beginning of this year was the stair-rush. The Freshman year had ended auspici-
ously with the Class Play, which was a success in every respect g many of those who were there said that it was the
best class play ever seen in the city. Taking their cue from this, the Sophs lined up on the stairway on that Friday
morning determined not to let the Freshmen break through more than two of their lines. Before the rush, there was
plenty of "hot air" emerging from the facial oriiices ofthe Freshmen but afterwards-silence reigned supreme.
The Freshmen rushed upon the stalwart lines of Sophomores but there was " nothin, doing." After fifteen minutes
of hard work, they succeeded in breaking the front line but could get no farther. The second line was like a stone
wall. So we, the Sophs, won the stair-rush and now hold the distinction of being one of the few classes that won
two stair-rushes. '
And now, mfma virosgue camo. Those mighty gridiron heroes deserve as much praise as the virum ofthe
Aeneid. This year, the Freshmen expected to walk away with our boys 5 " it would be a perfect 'cinch,' U they
said. Some of them even had the audacity to say that we would not score. But our boys, knowing well the igno-
rance and childishness of the Freshmen, said nothing. We knew that the Sophs would win.
It was a bright day, when the contest took place. In spite of the fact that they expected to win, the Freshmen
were nervous. Several of them had to take soda water f ? I to keep their spirits up, The Held was kept clear by the
Seniors and Juniors so that both teams had a fair chance to win 5 on other years, the Held had been crowded with
people. This game was the best class game for many years. Both teams were out for gore, and gory was the con-
test. Of course the Sophs won, 7 to 5.
During the game we displayed our pennant and deied the Freshmen to come and take it. They had their
hands full and were not anxious to get into another scrimmage. So the Black and Gold of 1906 waved triumphantly
above the defeated Freshmen and gleamed' like the image of victory above the heroic and invincible Sophomore
eleven. U '
Then, as a fitting climax, we had an elegant supper at Schnecksville. We toasted our heroes and our school,
and made the memory of this night a pleasant one in the minds of all who were present. Class spirit and enthusi-
asm animated every Sophomore there. T
The Class Banquet, that crowning event of all, will be treated in a separate article, by an abler hand than
This year's history has been even more encouraging than last year's. The only sad event was the death of
the revered President of our College which threw a gloom over all the school. Besides this, the year was a pleasant
one for us all. We have been steadily advancing in the way of wisdom and have been developing the Sophos rather
than the moros in our nature. '

HESE wise men come from far and near,
With eager thirst for learning 5
And here they find a bill of fare
To satisfy their yearning.
No cowards are they in the iight,-
They showed their strength in foot-ball.
And if the Freshies want some more
They'll give them more in base-ball.
Strike one, strike two,
Batter out g
' Three men out.
Their trophies crown the festal board 3
They sing their heroes' praises.
Good cheer is there and friendship too,
And mirth in all its phases.
Turkeys, roasts g
Mince pie, ice cream,
Fruits, and toasts.
Oh they're a merry, jolly crowd,
They're loyal brave and fearless g
No task at school can conquer them,
No way for them be cheerlessl

Tune : " Mister Dooley."
HEN you perceive the scroll of fame you'1l feel a certain thrill,
For at its summit stands the name we placed there with a will
And mighty was the effort for you see our ranks are thin,
The upper-classmen thought they could do us with a vim.
Our class united, our faith we plighted,
To rally round the garnet and champagne g
Mid gridiron smashes and cupid's dashes,
Alike uphold naught seven in its fame.
As we do thread the hollowed halls whence wisdom has its birth,
The blaze of knowledge round us does disperse all others' mirth 5
Then all do pay us homage for they know we've made a hit,
They wish they could surpass us but they can't, no not a bit.-CHO.
No doubt you wonder at the strains and envy our renown,
In mathematical glory we will surely gain our crown g
" Under the Bamboo Tree" we've sat and studied out the stars,
Encircling a something which was never up in Mars.-CHO.
We all have hopes that our dear name will always be sublime,
For tender memories we do have of this our sacred shrine 5
And ever will the spirits of bright heroes be most dear,
lllhen gentle evening breezes waft this song unto the ear.-CHO.
Freshman Class History.
This copyrighted version of the adventures of the Freshman Class is herewith published for the first time in an up-to-date form.
SCENE I.-Phocis, Greece.
A dress-suit case, so covered with labels that it resembled a theatrical bill-posting board, assisted a scholarly
looking personage to ascend the broad marble steps of the temple of Delphi and ushered him into the presence of the
Pythia. The traveler introduced himself to the priestess of the shrine and said, " I am not as you may suppose, an
advertising agent, but a Professor of Muhlenberg College, who has directed his steps hither to ascertain the decree of
this famous oracle respecting the incoming Freshman Class ,of that college."
The Pythia in reply uttered these words, the inspiration of Apollo himself, " It will be quality not quantity."
The Professor pays at the cashiers desk and retires.
SCENE 2.-Allentown, Pa.
A body of handsome young men, desirous of inhaling the classic atmosphere in the halls of dear old Muhlen-
berg, apply at Dr. Cooper's ticket oiiice and receive the necessary coupons of admission. There is no lingering of
motheris tears on their sturdy cheeks, for every one had come with the determination to seek glory.
Thus was the oracle fulfilled. The class although small eclipsed all others, and made the very rafters ring
with their praises, proving that quality not quantity counts.
ACT I.-SCENE 1.-College. First Floor Corridor.
The new found sons of Muhlenberg had scarcely basked in the sweet smiles of their paternal instructors,
when it was sprung on them that they would be initiated by the Sophs on the second Friday following. Immediately
the desire to conquer filled our thin ranks, and knowing that strength was required we journeyed to the muscle
making rooms of Physical Culture fame on the ground iioor.
The ever memorable day soon came, and our raw recruits having formed in attacking ranks dashed through
the door of the recitation room and sought the stairway 3 and with coats off and sleeves rolled up we dived after our
leader straight at the Sophs. Cheering with a vengence and urged on by the Juniors we pulled with might and main,
but it was like tackling the Pyramids of Egypt. We cleared some from the steps and pushed upward. Two of our
giants were up a considerable distance but lacking support were thrown back again. Then the tumult was declared
off by the President, and the Sophs awarded the victory. They saw our spirit, however, and trembled to think of
the consequences of a foot-ball game, if we would show such spirit. -
ACT II.-SCENE I.-Rittersville, Pa.
Time passed rapidly and one day a letter came from the Sophs challenging us to a gridiron contest. It was a
declaration of war.
A This set us to practising hard, for the Sophs let out a lot of " hot air" about wiping up the dust with us.
You shall see how greatly they were mistaken,
The auspicious day now drew near and the warriors arrayed themselves in full armor and took leave of their
loved ones. Oh l how sad. It was like the parting of Hector and Andromache. A
The combatants now arrive in the arena and the spectators take their seats. Neptune, the presiding diety of
the Sophs trembles for the outcome of the battle, and seeking Jupiter implores him 'to give the victory to the Sophs.
Juno, however, the Queen of Olympus, whose affections the Freshmen had already gained, became greatly enraged
and begged her husband not to grant the request, jupiter, who feared his brother, after much coaxing said that the
Sophs would win, but by a small margin. Then he called a council of the gods and commanded that none should
interfere on either side, and the battle is announced to commence.
Captain " Dodger " oifers sacrifice, but the entrails are unfavorable and the victim is without a heart.
The rival " eleven " now draw up in line of battle. The Sophs defy the Freshmen to charge, and to their
sorrow they see a greatgap rent in their ranks. Thus the struggle continued, always bitterly contested. Sometimes
one side had the advantage and sometimes the other, until the 'drst half ended and each side had a touchdown.
The intermission was soon over and again the warriors rush at each other and lock in deadly embrace. The
Freshmen made a mighty effort to gain another touchdown but Mars averts it. The Sophs try hard and gain a touch-
back. Again they made a great attack, but Bacchus intervenes, like Venus in the Illiad, and bears the Freshmen
away in a thick cloud, seating them at a banquet at the " White Inn" on Seventh Street, Allentown.
The Sophs are proclaimed victorious by the very small score of 7 to 5.
Always with honor have we striven,
Gladly doing all we were bidden g
And to brighten a time not far away,
Will appear a mighty Freshmen play.
Then let all good students praise the name,
Which upheld Muhlenberg in its fame.

ARK ! What sounds are those which greet our ears?
Exclainied the Sophs on a Wintery night'-
Those, ah yes, those are the Freshman cheers
Sleigh-riding in spite of Sophomore might.
They said, at first sight of the Freshman band,
What a cinch this is, so fine and grand g
But soon the chivalry of naught six
Were head over heels in an awful fix.
They ,went to play foot-ball very vain,
But destiny made them divide the fame 5
The names of the Freshmen who made them see
Will soon adorn the brands of cigars.
We have held our own in every demonstration,
Even in a " Physical Culture " examinationg
And when the Freshman Play will appear,
Sophs go way back and take a set in the rear.

Euterpean Literary Society.
UTERPEAN LITERARY SOCIETY was organized in 1867 for the sole purpose of developing the expressive
powers of a majority of the sons of Muhlenberg. Men of oratory are called for in every sphere of life. All
honor is due to the founders of Euterpea for securing such an opportunity by means of which all the latent
powers of oratory' may he aroused. Her motto: " Watch and Advance" has been her guide through the past
years, and to it she owes her success. '
She has at present fifty-two members and judging from past records we feel safe in saying that in the future
she will continue to prosper. Her library is continually growing 5 about one hundred new books of biography, hction,
history, religion, science, and travel have been added. The library now contains nearly three thousand volumes.
Euterpea ever feels proud of the many prominent men she has sent into the various walks of life. Honor
men are leaving her walls yearly. V
Sons of Euterpea must not forget what she has done for them and may her worli in the future ever strive to
overshadow that of the past.
Since a new college home is in sight we-hope that in a near future Euterpea will have the honor to move into
her own private home.

Sophronian Literary Society.
T is thirty-seven years ago that the Sophronian Literary Society was organized. It was organized by men who
realized the necessity of literary work, and who were aware of the fact that men with a college training were at
all times liable to be called upon to impart unto others what they know.
She has again enjoyed a year of great but not unusual prosperity. That the work done in the society is ben-
-eicial to the members is shown by what her men have again achieved during the past year. It was one of her
members that received iirst honor in last year's graduating class. She can also pride herself in the fact that one of
her members carried away the prize in the Junior Oratorical Contest, and more than that 3 that of the seven who were
willing to enter the contest six were Sophronians. It was also 'one of the members that represented the College at
the Inter-collegiate Oratorical Contest.
She may well feel proud of her past and by the continuation of the interest and activity of the members at the
present time her future may even overshadow her past.
As her name implies, Sophronia consists of men Whose literary ability is the light and pride of the institution 5
men who have erected living monuments for themselves by their achievements in the literary world.
There are now forty members of Sophronia who support the " White and Blue " and are ever mindful of her
motto, " The End Crowns the Work."
Her library, which consists upwards of twenty-live hundred volumes of science, history, travel, biography and
fiction is also a credit to her 5 since its books are always selected with the greatest care and therefore are only of the
most excellent standards.
The meetings during the present year have all been well attended and great interest was always manifested in
the rendition of the program. The new men are very active in their support of Sophronia, and there is no doubt
that her future will be in safe hands. A

During this time many of the Alumni and former members of the society spoke Words of praise in regard to
their Alma Maier and Sophronia. This reunion was especially interesting and enjoyable on account of the interest
shown by so many of the former members in speaking words of encouragement and showing what Sophronia has
done for them. After these brief addresses the meeting adjourned and all felt that they had spent the afternoon
pleasantly and profitably.
HE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION of Muhlenberg College met in the College Chapel at 7.30 P. M., june 17,
1903. Rev. J. C. Rausch, '90, presided. After prayer by Rev. Krauss, Rev. VV. O. Fegley, '90, was
appointed to secure the names of those present. Fifty-nine members were found to be present. After the
reading of the minutes, by motion of Dr. Seip, '85, the Class of 1903 was received into membership.
Election of officers then followed, the result of which was as follows: President, Rev. J. C. Rausch, '90,
Corresponding Secretary and Treasurer, Dr. G. T. Ettinger, '80, Recording Secretary, Dr. J. A. Bauman, '73. Dr.
G. T. Ettinger, '80, Dr. H. Seip, '85, and R. I. Butz, Esq., '87, were elected as a Board of Managers. The
Treasurer, Dr. Ettinger, gave his report, and by motion of Rev. E. H. Trafford, '92, the report was received and the
auditing committee of last year was continued. At this time the tellers reported that Rev. J. H. Umbenher, '80, and
-George R. Ulrich, D. D. S., '88, were elected first and second Vice-Presidents respectively.
Dr. S. E. Ochsenford, '76, chairman of the Committee on Alumni Building Fund made a verbal report to the
effect that the results during the year were very meager. Rev. E. J. Ritter, '88, then spoke at length about the
Alumni Building Fund, stating that some plan should be adopted to interest all the Alumni and to secure from every
-one as much as possible. He thought a good plan would be to divide the Alumni by conferences or centers, and
appoint a committee of three in each conference or center to solicit subscriptions.
Dr. Ochsenford stated that a man was appointed in each conference, but that the committee had not heard
from them. He then also read all the names of the committee on the Alumni Building Fund. Dr. Ochsenford then
stated that 512,000 was subscribed by one-fourth of the Alumni and that there should be no diiiiculty in raising
325,000 from all.
A motion was made by R. J. Butz that the money subscribed by the Alumni Association be devoted to the
-erection of the building upon the new college site. This motion was carried. This was followed by a discussion
with regard to some pastors heading the list of subscription in their own parishes, with the 3100 subscription for the
Alumni Building Fund. On motion of Rev. I. H. Waidelich the meeting adjourned.

The Sophomore Banquet.
T was the I6 of February, 1904, and in the cold, gray dawn, half-revealed figures might have been seen gliding
down the campus, like spirits of the night departing on the approach of day. The hgures were not spirits, but
very flesh-and-bone Sophomores, who, with their carpet bags and tooth brushes, were off to New York City for
the purpose of celebrating their annual banquet.
It has always been the custom that the Freshies frustrate the departure of the Sophs, or at least make an
attempt, and we are sorry to see them so luke-warm in continuing the old college customs and traditions that go to
make Alumni fire-side stories.
Nevertheless, we arrived at New York, and, after securing rooms at the Broadway Central, second only to the
'Waldorf-Astoria, went rambling around town.
Among the interesting places visited that day were the new East River bridge, Grant's tomb, Columbia Uni-
versity, and the Eden Musee. Especially interesting was the great Flatiron Building at Broadway and Fifth Avenue.
It is here that the mighty tide of the fair Gothamites ebbs and Hows, revealing in the relentless breeze heels and
hosiery of wondrous kinds and colors, " making one think of the Goddess of Liberty with one foot firmly planted on
earth and the other pointing to the stars."
In the evening the great event of the trip, namely, the banquet, took place in one of the elaborate private
dining rooms of the hotel already mentioned. Allow it to be said that the menu and the toasts responded to provided
an elegant 'L sufficiency " both for the physical and intellectual appetite.
But anguish rides swift after pleasure. It was 4 A. M. by the town clock when a worthy member of the expe-
dition made an attack on the emergency cascaret box in a way entirely too emphatic for the capabilities of this pen.
Some of the interesting places visited the following days were Wall Street, the Stock Exchange, Trinity
Church, the Battery, and the Statue of Liberty, also the Navy Yard, to which we were admitted through the
courtesy of Major McClellan.
It was while in the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts tl1at a Hask of bitters QI trust I use the right terml
escaped from an honorable comrade's coat-pocket, and with a loud crash, spread its contents on the iloor. The
guard, thinking some deed of vandalism had been committed, rushed to the place, and 1 but enough! I am
telling tales out of the family. '
Suiiice it to say, that after having become thoroughly New Yorkish, we returned to our college work both
happier and wiser men. Q

HEY sat on the steps at college,
As the hour of eleven drew nigh,
And their hearts began a throbbing,
And each one began to sigh 3
And each one thought of his mother,
Or his sweetheart so very dear,
And each one thought of the other,
For a battle was drawing near.
And patiently they waited
'Till the bell began to ring,
And then with breath abated.
They heard the foe forming.
And each one gripped his neighbor,
And each one prayed or swore,
That the Sophoniores should conquer,
Or be cowards for evermore.
And like a massing army,
The Freshmen slowly came,
Out of the classroom marching
In dolorous array:
And each one a little timid,
Yet each one determined still,
The Sophomores never should win it,--
This battle about to begin.
And tho the Freshmen were beaten
In battle to win the stair g
And tho on the gridiron defeated,
They still do boldly declare,
The Freshmen gathering courage
Began th' attack with a will,
Each one the other urging
To iight but not to kill :
And each one tackled another
And tugged with might and main,
Till the floor was strewn with bodies,
But none of them was slain.
For the battle was only the stair rush
And the President quickly came
And commanded the classes to hush,
So the Freshmen fought in vain.
And the Sophomores loudly cheering,
Proclaimed the victory theirs,
While the Freshmen stood their jeeririg
And declared it wasn't fair.
On a blood red field of battle
Our heroes had never been,
Nor had the roar of cannon
Ever been heard by them g
But each one felt within him
That courage which soldiers feel,
And patriotism filled them,
Which danger alone could reveal.
That in the great battle of life
They surely will fill the top notch,
And the Sophomores won't be in it.
But the Sophomores call it all " bosh."

I, in reply to a Leap Year letter,

And I, like a wise man, sage and bland, '
Assure you that I will understand.
You'll pardon my modesty if I don't sign

QSCENE.-Chapel.-Curtain rises discovering Sophomore Class with the president holding a letter. As the
-curtain rises the members of the Class look at each other with astonishment.
President : " Gentlemen of the Class of 1906 g I come before you this morning feeling confident that every-
one present is aware of my mission. I have in my possession a letter from the principal of a female school, to the
effect that you people had been in mischief again, and that he demands satisfaction for damages imposed by posting
Freshman rules on their building." Then followed a brief reprimand, after which the following conversation took
Mr. A. : " In trouble again, brothers I God be with us I "
Mr. B. : " Bah I Humbug I "
Mr. A. : " This a humbug, brother? You don't mean that, I'm sure."
Mr. B. : " I do I He simply did this to scare us a little. What right have you to be dismal and inorose?
We can easily give satisfaction."
Mr. A. : " Like fun, we can I I toldvthem to be careful, and now the news come like this."
Mr. B. 1 " Don't be angry, brother."
Mr. C. : " What else can you expect when you live in such a world of fools as this? Every idiot that goes
about with such ihoughfs in his mind should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through
his heart. He shouldft '
Mr. D. : " Oh, yes I We can easily give satisfaction, and then it may do us good to have the'eXperience."
Mr. A. z " There are many things from which I might have derived good, by which I might have profited, I
Adare say 3 but I am sure I have always thought of justice, apart from the veneration due to certain men."
Mr. E. I " This is the only time I know of, even including the long calendar of the by-gone year, when men
and even women seemed by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if
they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures, bound on other journeys that we
were called to terms and give satisfaction. Therefore, brothers, though it won't put a scrap of gold or silver in our
pockets, but the contrary, I believe it will do us good, and I say, God bless it I "
Mr. F. : " Why you are quite a powerful speaker, sir, let me hear some more from you. I suppose you will
be a desirable candidate for the presidency of the class during the banquet season,"
Mr. G. : " Yes, let's forget this and have a banquet in commemoration of it. Although I feel sorry, with
all my heart that this has come to pass. We have never had any trouble to which we had to bow, but this trial has
come upon us, because, for the honor of the Class of 19o6 we wanted to show to those fair college damsels what
privileges we granted to the Class of I9o7."
Mr. I-I. : " This thing will circulate. Soon every fellow in college will know it, and some outside people,
especially our sweet,- dear, affectionate, loving, entertaining, fascinating, zealous, charming, captivating, ardent,
admired, revered, chaste, fashionable, accomplished and beloved sweethearts. This might lower us in their
Mr. I. : " Bah I Is that any reason why we should be dismal about this thing. If we have to pay we might
consider ourselves ill used. Apparently the action of the master seems harsh, but somehow I can't help thinking
that he has a tender spot in his heart somewhere, if only one could find it. But to tell the truth, it's like looking for
a needle in a haystack. What is it that makes him so angry? I-Ie ain't sick that I know of, and yet he acts as if he
had all his life gotten out of bed wrong side foremost. Perhaps he was born so. Well, never mind what ails him 5
all I know is that we committed something that we ought not to have done, and we have to bear the consequences,
This is a time to think well of everybody 3' so I'll try to do even of him who brought this trial upon us."
SCENE.-Chapel.-Enter some Sophomores who have been informed that the Class is wanted in chapel.j
Mr. J. : fl-Entering chapel.J " What's up boys? As I entered the hall a ' Freshman ' told me that I am
wanted in chapel." A
Mr.. K. : " A thing that I suppose will surprise you. The unexpected has again turned up. The president
just read a letter informing us that the principal of a female school demands satisfaction for posting those Freshman
rules on their building. What is your opinion concerning it? We have been discussing it for some time already."
Mr. 1. : " Oh, mercy I Is it possible! In fact, I am quite surprised, although I had premeditated that it
might stir up his animal nature g but yet I had hoped for the best, since it came to pass we have to make the best of
it. Hoping brothers that all will end well, and that the news will remain in our limits."
Mr. L. z " Bah I what rubbish." CTakes off coat and hat and throws them on a seat.j " Several years ago
several of my companions and I were in a somewhat similar trouble. We had faced it bravely and the affair turned
out somewhat favorably, although it had spoiled my digestion and had given me a sallow complexion."
" Yes, several years ago several of my companions and I Went through the trial. I wonder where they are
now so that I might converse with them in regards to it. They were fellows after my own heart, careful and saving.
What fools we are ! They got the best of us again."
Mr. M. : "Yes, we certainly were fools in doing it. To give satisfaction most likely requires cash, and this
is a year that we dare not be very charitable, for we need the cash for the coming banquet. I am of a sympathetic
nature, and am always willing to forgive 5 but it requires a second thought before I'll forgive the plaintiff."
Mr. N. : " I concur with the assertions of my predecessor. I don't want to spend my hard-earned money for
such rubbish as this. I'm sure I paid enough for the supportof such iomfaolefy. I believe in putting up a stiff
defense against the plaintiff."
Mr. O. : " Dear classmates I I am an associate with you in this afliiction. But what evidence does he have
of our guilt? fMeditating.j Oh, yes I Mercy be upon us I I think of it now, the wording on the posters give it
away at once. Well I suppose we have to swallow this, and be for the rest of our lives persecuted by a legion of
Mr. P. : " Oh, mercy I Why do you trouble me? Would that it were an apparition I Must we men of
worldly minds believe it? It seems we must. I can't understand why it is that we have to go through this trial.
It seems the fates are against us, as if, we would have to wonder through this world with a good many misfortunes."
Mr. R. : " My land I Brother, don't be so pessimistic I Don't make it worse than it really is I There is a
bright side to it, as well as a dark 5 and this is what we have to look forf'
Then there was silence for a few moments g each one being in deep meditation trying to see the bright side 5
but it seemed to have been beyond the horizon of perception for most of them.

HE moon and stars are shining,
The night is calm and clear,
The students all are smiling,
They kuow that trouble's near.
The clock is slowly tolling,
The hour of nine has come g
The students, in a body,
Out on the campus come.
Behold, in the distance towering,
Like a mountain, great and high,
An object which seems to grow larger
As the students are drawing nigh.
Scarcely a word is spoken,
As if each one filled with awe,
Expected to see the monster
Open his Wooden jaw.
But hark I The old school-bell
Is ringing loud and clear,
As its sound it gladly sends,
And the students loudly cheer.
But see ! The monster is moving,
Its great side begins to quake,
And the smoke is upward rolling,
And the fire the stillness breaks.
Then the silence is broken,
As the students dance around,
And the smoke is almost choking
The citizens standing 'round.
And then in their night shirts dressing
Or perchance with their sheets wrapped round
The students are parading
The streets of old Allentown.
First to the Profs. they are marching,
And each one they serenade,
And then on the Square they are stopping
And an Indian dance is made.
The citizens all enjoy it,
That dance around the square,
But a policeman quickly saw it,
And inwardly did swear
That the students all are devils,
And up to devil's tricks-,
But now a yell fills the heavens,
And the " cop " is called to his wits
He pounces down on the students,
As a cat jumps at her prey,
But not like the little rodents,
Did our students run away.
For they had had permission-,
The Mayor's our friend, you see-,
And so the large procession
Moved on in mirth and glee.
I won't weary you, my reader,
WVith a long account of the past,
Suffice it to say that for M. C.,
A " head l' had been found at last.

A MATRINIONIAL SOLILOQUY.
AN'S three score yearns and ten
Shall soon pass o'er his head g
Disease may come and then
They soon may say, 'I-Ie's dead.'
In College I've attained
To Senior,-at least, in name g
My whole life has been maimed
Because I've no madame.
Soon college days are o'er,
And then to ' biz ' I must,
ll seek the whole world o'er,
And find a wife or bust.
I'm tired of boarding 'round,
And mending shirts and socks g-
d rather plow the ground
Or else be fast in stocks. '
have no love for Latin,
And all know I'm no Greek,
nd as for Mathematics,
I'd rather be a beet.
have no love for stones,
And as for Chemistry,
d rather buy old bones,
Or else go on a spree.
like the 'Profs.' of course,
But then they don,t like me,
d rather ride a horse,
Or else a nice pon-y.
I'l1 soon be old, and then-,
But wait, a wife I'll find g
I'll show the College men
I can if I've a mind.
A new suit I must have,
A hat, shoes, gloves and cane,
A jolly time I'll have
'Till I have found my dame."
Thus he soliloquized,
Then quickly did set out
To find a merchant wise,
One who Could fit him out.
To Allentown he came,
And quickly was he dressed g
Had shoes, and hat, and cane,
And suit the very best.
Thus dressed in new attire,
Our hero looked around g
His heart was all afire,
Iiis feet scarce touched the gr
A pretty maid he spied,
A pleasant smile had she
And when he bowed and smiled
He captured her, " Ah me l "
And then they sat together,
The light, alas ! was dim 5
I-Ie was happier than ever,
For she had promised him.
They to the parson Went,
Their troubles did relate,
The bride to tears gave vent,
And thus said to her mate,
Ah, dear," she softly sighed,
" Of all men you're the best,
My love shall e'er abide
Till Death has done his best."
Now to the college boys
Once more he gladly comes
He's greeted with a noise
As the blowing up of bombs
They ask him how he did ity
The boys all ask at once g
Some thot that he'd regret it,
He gave but this response,
I'u1 happy now, by Iinks,
Now boys, play ball and tennis
I'1l treat and pay for drinks,
Or else my name's not Dennis!
No sooner has he wed
And given his report
Than another, good and glad,
Gives to him this retort,
Well, I'll not be out-done
In the matrimonial race
By anyone, ' By Gum ' g
Now watch my little pace.
A wife I've found at last,
The best in all the earth,
She is the prettiest lass
Of all God's Handfijwerkf'
I-IE student begins at twilight,
And busily hour by hour,
Has been buried in books till midnight.
And his face is beginning to sour.
He never has time for base-ball,
He never has time for play,
And as for the game of foot-ball,
" 'Tis cruel,'l is all he will say.
He never has time for checkers,
And chess is a puzzle to him,
And the reason he does not play tennis,-
To waste precious time were a sin.
He really likes conversation,
When he isn't too busy to talk g
But he can't see in all creation
How othersfind time for a walk.
Some students find time to be social,
And to visit around in town 1
They are making friends by the hundreds,
While he has no friends around.
And when he meets a young lady
I-Ie doesnlt know what to say,
And he feels like a little baby,
VVhen she doesn't want to stay.
Yet he is very determined,
And wants to have his own way 3
He for his life can't imagine
Why she now walks away.
And if perchance it should happen,
That he on a young lady call,
He never felt half so happy,
And books may go to the dogs.
But if by some misfortune
He should propose to her,
He has never a thought of torture
'When "No" is her answer.
For if she can live without him,
He can without her, you know g
For a book to l1im is more pleasant
He's not used to making addresses,
He knows a great deal, don't you know,
But somehow he can't express it,
But he knows it all, don't you know.
I know you would like to know, now,
Who this wonderful student can be g
But you must be aware that somehow
Hels found in each college you see.
And he is only a bookworm-
An old musty worm at that-
Yet I know that he always must yearn
For some friends with whom to chat.
For even to him books grow tiresome.
When he's weary and ill at ease,
And yet he never has striven
Some other mortal to please.
So live to make others happy
Nor always think of yourself
And somehow it's only a habit
Than wife, and children, and home. To think OUIY of books OU H Shelf-
And if you should ask him to lecture
Or give a short talk, or so,
An excuse he will manufacture,
He's really too busy you know.
ELL me not in growing numbers,
" College life is all a dream l"
For the student fails-that slumbers-
To see his studies as they seem.
Life is real ! Life is earnest !
And th' diploma is the goal !
Both the foolish, and the sluggard,
Shall be left out in the cold.
Not to Worry, nor to sorrow,
Did we struggle all the way g
But we find that each to-morrow
Has like troubles as to-day,
Lessons long and time fast fleeting,
A PSALNI OF LIFE.
CA Student's Version.j
Finds the man, though stout and brave,
Who with heart still warm and beating,
Does not mathematics crave.
Let us then never be discouraged
'Bout our lessons, hard and long,
Interlined books you 'can purchase,
You can buy one for a song.
In the worldls vast Held of knowledge,
With good ponies all around,
What's the use of midnight studies !
Learn to ride and worry drown 5
Trust to luck, whenever present !
That you e'er flunked be't never said !
Ride, ride in the living present !
Honor, fear and conscience dead.
Lives of students all remind us
XVe can make some sad face shine
When departing, we've left behind us,
Some helps writt'n between the lines.-
Interlinings that another,
Sailing fast towards Failure's shore,
A sad, and weary, Hunked out brother,
Seeing he shall flunk no more.
In my class I head the list,
That is an honor the others missed.
I am considered very slow,
XVliene'er to see a girl I go,
Behold an energetic man
Who helps men on whene'er he can.
Dear sir, if you would only try
To keep your studies in your eye,
And then would work with might and main,
You might a little knowledge gain.
If at any time you wish to see
A Berlds County Dutchman look at me.
It would never do to make a row,
For I am Business Manager now.
You all know I'm the CIARLA's head
VVithout me it were surely dead.
I elucidate by clemonstration,
Whene'er I've an excogitation,
That sesquipedality's an art
To be scrutinized in every part.
This, my friends, is a Sunday-school worker
In Life's great work he'1l be no shirker.
I don't se-ee how I ever can
Be old enough to be a man.
A preacher I expect to be,
And funeral sermons, you shall see,
Will ever be llly specialty.
I'm a little lad, am I g
I'm only sixty inches high,
But then the girls all say Ilm cute,
So you may know I am a L' beautf'
Oh, this is such a funny lad,
The Profs. at him can ne'er be mad 5
And yet, as you may well expect,
He sometimes gets it in the neck.
Sometimes slow and sometimes fast,
Depends on the girl which he had last.
Now, here is a fellow who says he can ru
But then we all know he's only in fun,
My goodness ! I could give advice
If anyone should ask,
For I have got experience wide.
And now am father of the class.
A preacher, a lawyer, or teacher I'll he,
Whichever it is you some day may see.
Of him I nothing more will say
Than that he expects to preach some day.

DID you hear the news? No, well I'm married-yes I'm married. Oh there is nothing like courtship, love
is one sweet dream-and marriage, that's when you wake up. Why is marriage called a honeymoon, honey because
its full of cells, moon because it comes high. Boys, when you are courting your girl put your arm around the small
place of her back and when you are lip to lip pop the question, and do it as if you was joking, if she says no you
can say that you was only in fun. But when you do get married give the parson some change, don't give him all
you got, no, no, save some for a divorce. Look at Brigham Young. I-Ie had 33 wives. See the trouble he had
when Christmas came around, and when all his wive's mothers came. No wonder he is dead. I would also say that
a woman's first duty is to get married, even if she has to support a husband 5 just think of the many young men that
need a home 5 and ladies when you get married remember that you are your husband's better half, yes his better 75
cents, and I have known cases where a married woman was the whole shooting match. A woman can talk through a
knot hole in a fence to another woman and never miss a word. A woman has more presence of mind than a man. I was
out boat riding with a young lady one day and the boat upset, we sank together and arose parted. I managed to get
hold of the boat, when I saw her throwing her arms wildly in the air. I shouted Alice, Alice, give me your hand.
She blushed and exclaimed, Oh this is so sudden ! Ladies I must also call your attention to the fact that Irishmen
make the best of husbands as they are all in favor of home rule. Every woman knows how to handle a husband,
but some times the husbands wonlt let them. A good wife is like a garden seed, you never know the value of either
until they are planted beneath the ground. And I know a number of married men that would do a little planting.
When a girl of eighteen gets a proposal of marriage, she says " Mother who is he ?" At 25 she says, " Ma what is
he?" And at 40, " Mama where is he?" Woman was made out of water, she's got an ocean in her head, a water-
fall back of her neck, a crick in the back, some times a cataract in her eye and waves on her forehead, streams of
ribbons, water blisters from tight shoes, springs in her waist, and she never gets water on the brain for she don't dry
up enough. How often- we talk and write of woman 5 you remember we used to say Mary had a little lamb. But
it's different now, the way they dress and hold them up, it's changed to
Mary's got a little calf, but what would thisworld be without woman-what would it be, why one big stag nation.
But boys, remember one thing, never marry a woman taller than yourself, that's not falling in love, that's
climbing up to it.-Lodefs fh'!a1'izj1 Budget.

THE KICKING IVIULE.
ONE morning Squire johnson was riding his kicking mule to market when he met Jim Boggs, against whom he had an old and
concealed grudge. The Squire knew Boggs' weakness lay in bragging and betting 3 therefore he saluted him accordingly.
" How are you Jim? Fine morning." " Hearty Squire " replied jim. " Fine Weather. Nice mule that you are riding. Will
he do to bet on?"
" Bet on ? Guess he will. I tell you jim Boggs, he's the best mule in the country. "
" Great thunders ! Is that so ?" ejaculated jim.
"Solid truth, every word of it. Tell you confidentially, I am taking him down for betting purposes. I bet he can kick a fly off
any man without its hurting-him. '
" Now look here Squire " said Jim, " I am not a betting character, but I'll bet you something on that myself."
" jim, there's no use-don't bet," said the Squire.
" I don't want to win your money."
" Don't be alarmed Squire. I'll take such bets as them every time."
" Well if you are determined to bet, Jim, I'll risk a small stake-say ive dollars." '
" All right Squire-you're my man. But who'll he kick the Hy off? There is no one here but you and I. You try it.',
"KNO " says the Squire, H I have to be at the mule's head to order him."4
" Oh, yes," says Jim. " Then probably I'm the man. Waal, I'l1 do it, but you are to bet ten against my five if I risk it."
" All right " said the Squire. " Now there's a l-ly on your shoulder. Stand still." And the Squire adjusted the mule.
" Whist Jerrey " said the Squire. The mule raised his heels with such velocity and force that Boggs rose in the air like a bird,
and alighted on all fours in a muddy ditch, bang up against a rail fence.
Rising in a towering passion, he exclaimed : " Yaas, that is smart ! I knew your darned mule couldn't do it. You had all that
put up. I wouldn't be kicked like that for fifty dollars. Now you can just fork them stakes right over."
" No sir," said the Squire 5 Ierrey did just what I said he would. I said he would kick a fly off a man without its hurting him,
and he did. You see the mule is not hurt by the operation. However, if you are not satisned, we will try again as often as you Wish."i
Jim brushed the mud off, looked salemnly at the mule, and then, putting his hand thoughtfully to his brow, remarked z "
Squire, I don't think the mule is hurt 5 but I didn't understand the bet. You can keep the money.

" ETHEL J' asked the teacher, when Ethel had grown quite large, and began to think a little, " whom do the
Ancients say supported the world on his shoulders ?"
" Atlas, sir."
" Yes, quite right. Now if Atlas supported the world who supported Atlas?"
" I suppose he married a rich wife," replied Ethel thoughtfully.

A BASHFUL young man was escorting a bashful young lady, when she said, entreatingly: 'Jabezf don't
