The Ciarla, 1909 TO DOCTOR WILLIAM WACKERNAGEL THIS VOLUME IS RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED B Y T H E CLASS OF 1909 O N September 25, 1838, at Basel on the Rhine, Switzerland, Rev. William Wackernagel, D. D., Professor of the Modern Languages and Literature was first seen. Sprung from a scholarly lineage, he has not lost any of his ancestors’ characteristics. His father, Wilhelm Wackernagel, Ph. D., L-L- D., was a professor at the Univer- sity of Basel, and his mother was a sister of Dr. Casper Bluntochly, Professor of Political Science at Munich and Heidelberg. Dr. Wackernagel received his education at Basel where he also attended the university. In 1859, Dr. Wackernagel left Germany for the Holy Land where he was a missionary for eleven years. In 1870 he came to America and for six years was the assistant editor of “ Der Pilger,” Reading, Pa. In 1876, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. In June 1876, he was ordained a Lutheran clergyman and accepted a call to St. John’s Church, Mauch Chunk, which he served until 1881. In 1880, he founded St. John ' s Church in East Mauch Chunk. Since 1881 he has filled his present position of Professor of the Modern Languages and Literature at Muhlen- berg College. In 1881, the College conferred upon him the degree of A. M. Two years later he received the degree of D. D. from the University of Pennsylvania. In 1882, he was elected German Secretary of the Ministerium of Penn- sylvania and filled that office for five years. From 1884, to 1887, in connection with his duties as Professor at Muhl- enberg College, he served as Pastor of St. Thomas Church, Altoona, Pa. From November 1903 to June 1904, he served as Acting-President of Muhlenberg College. In 1905 the graduating class presented him with a loving-cup in honor of the completion of his twenty-fifth year as a professor at Muhlenberg College. Though his duties as a professor were enough to require his full time, yet he found opportunity to do even more work. He compiled “ Die Liedergeschichten, ” wrote two volumes of “ Dr. Martin Luther,” “ Hans Egede,” and other valuable books. At the present time he is the editor both of ” Der Jugend Freund ” and of the German Sunday School Lessons, besides being a regular contributor to the “ Lutheran ” and other church periodicals. 5 Apologia de Ciarla. T HE Ciarla is a better book than its name indicates. It contains much more than youthful mirth. A great deal of time, thought, literary effort and artistic skill have been devoted to it to make it a success and a credit to the class of ' 09, which wishes to make its mark in the annals of our college. Ciarla means “ gossip,” and ” char- latan ” is derived from it, words which are not complimentary to the book and to its editors. There is little hope that the present title will ever be changed, for college students are ultra-conservative with respect to their traditions, whilst in other and more essential things they are inclined to radicalism. In most cases a Junior is not only better looking but also wiser looking than a Freshman — no offence being meant to the latter, who will readily agree to it when he is a Junior himself. As long as the Ciarla is ” ciarla ” the funny element will be much in evidence. It rarely becomes too per- sonal. A good laugh is conducive to good health, the doctors say. Whether this year ' s Ciarla will surpass its predecessors in merry-making, remains to be seen. College ” gossip ” indulges in slang but not in slander, is humor- ous but not sarcastic, gives the fellows a friendly punch but not a vicious kick, and is sometimes an effective remedy for moral or social distemper. The general character of our student-body is such, than one can expect decent things of them. Muhlenberg boys are winning for themselves an enviable reputation in athletics ; why should it be impossible for them to gain a high place in literature and art even on its funny side ? Let us wish them success in everything that is worthy of praise. 6 PROEM.

D., was born at Ilsfeld, Germany, February 4, 1826. When he was four years old his parents brought him with them to this country, and settled in Philadelphia. He received his early education at the Franckean Academy in that city, and later on went to the University of Pennsylvania, from which he was graduated in 1846. He then studied theology with Rev. Ur. Demme, Pastor of Zion’s Church, Philadelphia, and was licensed to preachat Easton, Pa., in 1848. In 1848 and 1849 he served as Pastor of Trinity Church, Philadelphia ; from 1849 to 1853, as Pastor at Salem, Lebanon, and also at Myerstown and Annville ; from 1853 to 1861, at Trinity Church, Lancaster, Pa.; from 1861 to 1868, at St. Mark’s Church, Philadelphia; from 1868 to 1895, at Holy Trinity Church, New York City; and from 1896 to his death in 1907, at the Church of the Advent, New York City. Besides his pastoral work, he was well known as an orator, an editor, an author, and a leader. As an orator he had unusual power. As an editor he was well known, having been for many years Editor of ' ' The Lutherische Herold, ’ ’ and at his death Editor-in-chief of " The Lutheran.’’ As an author, he published an Explanation of the Constitution of the United States in German ; a translation of Ledderhose’s Life of Melanchthon ; " Who are the Blessed? a Meditation on the Beatitudes;” and in conjunction with Rev. Dr. W. J. Mann, an Explanation of Luther’s Small Catechism. He was a leader in the movement resulting in the organization of the General Council ; was twice elected its President, and at his death was Chairman of two of its important committees. He had held the office of President of the Ministerium of Penn- sylvania, and also of that of New York. At his death he was President of the Board of Directors of the Theological Semi- nary at Philadelphia, an Institution begun largely through his efforts; a Trustee of Muhlenberg College; a Trustee of the of the Inner Mission Society of New York City ; a Director of the ;r spheres of church work.

T HE history of Muhlenberg College may be said to have had its beginning a hundred years before the College was founded, when Patriarch Muhlenberg and several of his co-laborers undertook the establishment of an educa- tional institution in Philadelphia. Although their undertaking was frustrated by the Revolutionary War, they nevertheless succeeded in securing privileges for their young men in the University of Pennsylvania, and for a num- ber of years one of the Lutheran pastors held a professorship in that institution. In the first quarter of the Nineteenth Century the Ministerium of Pennsylvania helped to found Pennsylvania College, at Gettysburg, and until 1867 retained its connection with that institution, contributing largely to its support and to the maintenance of several of its professors. Muhlenberg College was established in 1867, as.the result of a long-felt want for an educational institution in Eastern Pennsylvania, under Lutheran control. The property of the “ Allentown Collegiate Institute and Military Academy,” the successor of the old Allentown Academy, founded in 1848, located at the corner of Fourth and Wal- nut Streets of this c ity, was purchased, a charter was secured, and Muhlenberg College began its important work on September 4, 1867, with twenty-five students and a Faculty of eight members. The Rev. Frederick A. Muhlenberg, D. D., until that time professor of Greek at Pennsylvania College, and acknowledged to be the best Greek scholar in the State, was the President, and the Rev. Theodore L. Seip, who had just graduated from the Philadelphia Theo- logical Seminary, was the Principal of the Academic Department and Assistant Professor of Greek. The property of the new college consisted of about five acres of ground, on which had been erected a brick building, attached to the old ” Livingstone Mansion,” with a frontage of one hundred and thirty feet and a depth of forty feet. The building was three stories high. To this the trustees at once added a rear wing, one hundred feet long and five stories high. The building was provided with rooms for the accommodation of students, a chapel, library, recitation-rooms, and a reading-room. The presidency of Dr. Muhlenberg continued until the close of the year 1876, when he resigned to accept a professorship in the University of Pennsylvania. On January 1, 1877, the Rev. Benjamin Sadtler, D. D., assumed the duties of the presidency, and served the institution until the year 1885, when the Rev. Theodore L. Seip, D. D., who had been connected with the college from the beginning of its exist- tence, was unanimously elected his successor. He devoted the remainder of his life to the service of the college. He died November 28, 1903. During the presidency of Dr. Seip the college enjoyed its greatest prosperity at the old location, both in the matter of securing funds for its support and endowment, as well as in number of students. The Mosser-Keck and the Asa Packer professorships were endowed as the direct result of his efforts and influence. The courses of study were advanced, the sphere of usefulness of the college was enlarged, the Scientific Department was added, and the institution began to exercise a wide influence in educational circles. With his death ended the 12 MUHLENBERG COLLEGE first period of the history of the college, a period of thirty-six years. Dr. Seip lived to see the beginning of work on the new buildings, on the new college site at Twenty-third and Chew Streets, to be present at the corner-stone lay- ing of the Administration Building, and to plan for the enlargement of its work. After the death of Dr. Seip, Professor William Wackernagel, D. D., was elected acting president and served acceptably in that capacity until the present incumbent assumed the duties of his office. Our present highly esteemed President, the Rev. John A. W. Haas, D. D., began his labors as the head of our Alma Mater in the spring of the year 1904. The work of the college was still carried on in the old building, while the present buildings were in course of erection. On Wednesday evening, June 22, 1904, the new president was formally installed, as the fourth president of the college ; on the following day, Thursday, June 23, the new Administration Building was conse- crated by President Haas ; and in January, 1905, the work of the college was begun in the new buildings. The Administration, or Main Building, occupies the highest point on the plot of ground of fifty-five acres, on which the buildings are erected, and presents magnificent views of natural scenery on all sides. The building has a frontage of 190 feet and a depth of 65 feet, and is three stories high above the basement. It is built of pink grano- lithic stone, with Indiana limestone trimmings, and cost $100,000. It contains recitation-rooms, president’s office, reception-room, treasurer’s office, reading-room, library, chapel, society halls, and in the basement a well equipped gymnasium. The dormitories, known as “Berks Hall’’ and “ Rhoads Hall,’’ respectively, occupy a commanding position, east of the Main Building, with a frontage of 180 feet and depth of 31 feet, and are provided with single and double suites of rooms, with accommodations for about seventy-five students. The Power House is located in the northwestern part of the college grounds, where also the Chemical Laboratory is located. The President’s resi- dence occupies the southwestern corner of the front campus. All the buildings are commodious and well adapted for the use for which they are intended. They are heated with steam heat and furnished with electric light from the Power House, and are provided with other conveniences belonging to modern buildings of an approved character. These buildings present a marked contrast, when compared with the old, and offer opportunities for enlarged facili- ties in everything pertaining to modern college work. Since the college has moved into its new quarters it has made progress in every direction, in an increase in the number of professors, in the expansion of its work in connection with the two courses of study— the Art and Scien tifie courses, — and in the number of students. The new period in the history of Muhlenberg College has begun auspiciously, and the friends of the college can look forward to a useful and successful future. We can only add to this brief account, that numerous changes have taken place, from time to time, in the Faculty, during the past forty years. Of the present members of the Faculty those longest in service are Professors Wackernagel, Ettinger and Bauman. Numerous changes have also been made in the curriculum. The Scientific course offers excellent opportunities for scientific study and investigation ; and the Art course has been advanced from time to time, until it is equal to that of any of the colleges in Pennsylvania. A few years ago a number of elective courses were added to the regular curriculum, affording the students of the Senior and Junior classes oppor- tunities to specialize along certain lines. Muhlenberg College is recognized to-day as the representative Lutheran College in the United States. 13 CIARLA BOARD 5 OllfOSliTflOPJ Term Expires. PRESIDENT, HON. GUSTAV A. ENDLICH, L.L. D.

I T requires no long ' and tedious investigation to show to a fainninded man that the advantages which a college offers to a young man are not and can not be paid for by the small sum charged for tuition. It must then neces- sarily ' ' follow that an alumnus of an institution of learning owes it something more than the money he has paid into its treasury. This is true of the smaller colleges as well as of the larger ones, for although the latter can offer more courses, a larger equipment, more imposing buildings, the former have their peculiar advantages which in the minds of many educators fully offset those of the larger institutions. This is particularly true of the undergraduate courses. It matters not how much may be offered in the way of mental pabulum and delectation to an undergraduate student, he will carry away with him no more than he is able to digest, and most small colleges offer more than most students can assimilate with profit unto-themselves in the allotted four years of study. What is over and beyond this is use- less and may be a source of harm. The alumnus of a small college, therefore, owes it also a life-long devotion. The claims of a church college on the devotion of its alumni are still stronger. Its graduates are quite largely members of the church which has established it and fosters it. On account of the feeling of so many rich men against positive religious teaching, it can not look to these for large gifts. It can not expect any aid from the State. It must get its support mainly from the members of the church to which it belongs and whose interests it serves and with whose prosperity it is so closely united that what aids the one helps the other. An alumnus of such a college has three strong reasons why he should loyally support it : first, because it is a strong aid in the upbuilding of his own church ; secondly, because it stands for Christianity over against materialism and atheism ; thirdly, because it is his alma mater. A very useful factor in the prosperity of an institution of learning is its Alumni Association. This is an organization composed of those who have experienced the benefits of a college education, who know the needs of the college quite intimately, and who are united by the bond of a common love for the college which has fostered them. Many alumni can do very little financially for their Alma Mater, but not one has any good reason for refus- ing to belong to the Alumni Association. This is emphatically true of the Alumni of Muhlenberg College. When the initiation fee is but fifty cents and the annual dues only a dollar, surely no one can say he can not afford to be- long to it. And yet one-third of the alumni have never in anyway been connected with the Association, and of the remaining two-thirds only about a fourth are present at its meetings or contribute regularly to its treasury. If every alumnus would make it his duty yearly to contribute his dollar, how easily the Association could sup- ply a stated sum for increasing the library. There are about 600 graduates. If only 500 would yearly send their dues to the Treasurer, Prof. G. T. Ettinger, Ph. D., we could have an annual library fund of $400. This with the funds now on hand would make it at least $500, which could be annually used to purchase new books for the library and put in better shape the material already on hand. Could the money be better invested, and at less trouble to the members? Think what it would mean to have such a steady growth of so important a factor in the development of the college, — the library. In this way, at the expense of the small sum of one dollar a year, or two cents a week, every alumnus could participate in the advancement of his Alma Mater, even though he were so situated as not to be present at the meetings of the Association. Those who could attend could be helpful in arousing and sustaining interest in the institution and in devising ways and means for its support and enlargement. Surely it is no grievous task once a year to meet together as a sort of committee on the state of the college, exchange views, and renew old friendships. Let every Senior then join the Alumni Association on his commencement day, and ever after remain an active, contributing member of the same. In this way it can be made a potent factor in the upbuilding of a Greater Muhlenberg. 26 27 THE BIG FOUR. Hail ! Freshmen, you who are so green, Excessive fear is now your mien. Remember not to form or plan. The Sophomore is your best man. Remember not to disobey, For you will wear his shoes some day; And everywhere tis best that you Do well the work assigned to do. The Sophomore now greets the stage With horses in his equipage. You see by his disdaining looks That he is not well versed in books. ' Tis best for him when in his prime To prize the given hours of lime. That upward still must be his aim, Do well his part in every game. Behold! the Junior now steps forth The noblest, best of all on earth. For him there i; great pomp and show, He triumphs over every foe. On field, in class he plays his part, He understands that Cupid’s dart Must pierce his soul with flames of love. So now he ' s waiting for his dove. The stately Senior comes in line, For him there is no mirth nor wine. Through all the years now gone and past He nobly warred the stormy blast. Through wisdom ' s mazes now he goes For vital problems are his foes. His days in college now are done. And life’s long journey must be run. 28 From lowest to highest you ' ve traveled, Your college life soon will be o ' er, The greenness of Freshmen behind you The world with its battles before. The Sophomores’ wisdom has vanished Your Junior ideals gone and fled You through unknown wisdom’s mazes Must ever be guided and led. What sounds do you hear yet so distant. Does it sound like a funeral knell ? It brings back to you college fancies. It is but the students ' farewell, For life with a glorious future Now opens its vista to you Remember, it comes with a message, ‘ Brave hearts love the right and the true. " SENIOR CLASS.

There was a far-away look on the face of all. Their reciting was like the repetition of so many words. Spirit and interest was lacking on the part of all. Evi- dently something serious was on their minds to cause this gloom. Yet it was not a new experience to them. Each had felt the harsh hand of time rending old ties when they broke from the family circle four years before. It was the last day of recitation and marked the beginning of the breaking up of this newer circle of friends which had been drawn so closely together in a four year search for truth. It hardly seemed possible that four years should have sped by so rapidly. Why, it seemed but yesterday that we were living in Freshman air-castles and now we must already part company with the bards and sages who helped us fashion our ideals. No longer shall this same group sit with Socrates and Plato under the plane tree beside the nymph infested brooks of Greece discussing the immortality of the soul. No longer shall we together unravel the truths of bygone ages written in secret ruins and hidden in low-vaulted caverns of Mother Earth or speed the broad heavens in Galileo’s chariot. Now each must seek out new companions to enjoy this bliss. Such were the thots of the Seniors as they for the last time left their Alma Mater’s recitation halls. Much had been accomplished in this last year by 1908. Her influence was felt in every department of college life. Never was she conspicuous but always on baud with the things that make for progress. Football was never better managed than it was under the wise direction of one of the sons of 1908. The Glee Club was praised for its artistic work wherever it appeared. The “Muhlenberg” has risen to a standard of excellence never before attained and the literary societies can well be proud of their progress. In all these activities 1908 has furnished the efficient leaders. And now, as she is about to leave, she can proudly hand them over in a prosperous and healthy condition to her successor with the hope that this onward and upward movement may go on with even greater strides. May we all feel toward our Alma Mater as we should feel toward this world, that if we have not benefited this place by our having been here we might just as well not have been here. 33 CLASS SONG, 1908.

CHORUS : — Our Alma Mater now we greet, Oh College great, And for her future progress strive This Class of 1908. When other walks of life we tread, As loyal sons and true, The spirit that was in us bred We ll never, never rue. CHORUS : — For Muhlenberg upholds the truth. Oh College staid, Which makes this life of better grade, Oh Class of 1908. Then sing, oh classmates, ever dear, And tuneful voices raise, This song that brings us ever near Our good old College days. CHORUS : — Then shall the world at large well know This College great, To which we swear allegiance now. Oh Class of 1908. 34 Hail to ihe Junior, The man of the hour ! Talk of his prowess, Boast of his power. Tell of his glory On field, or in class ; Him all men honor, Him none surpass. Never undaunted, He nothing fears, He is the bravest. None are his peers.

E IGHT moons before the 1905 Autumnal Equinox, the stately edifices at Twenty-third and Chew Streets became the Mecca of the present Junior class. Sun, moon and stars shone in quadruple effulgence as this cosmopolitan collection of semi-quadruped vertebrates entered upon their now three-fourths completed college life. We confess being of a light verdant hue at the time, but after a few pendulum vibrations all had disappeared, and we immedi- ately began squinting at Coelenterata, despising Mathematics — except “Israel,” and gathering horse-feed for the Winter. Men, perhaps will not long remember what this class said here, but ne’er will they forget what they did here! Whose filter-paper is so poor as not to retain, in the form of an insoluble precipitate, the result of the 1905 FRKSHM AN-sophmore foot-ball game ? Only those victories are worth having which come as a result of hard fighting, — something for which ’09 has ever been noted. To make up lost steam (nam ceteri ore pugnabamus) we naturally were compelled to replenish our tanks, which was done at the Duck Farm Hotel, situated upon one of the Peanut City’s neighboring watercourses. A memorable night indeed was that when, with a grace that soothed several thousand white-plumaged, sonmiculous ducks to sleep, we strove to pay our respect to Appetite by zealously unclosing our oral valves to everything acted upon by saliva and gastric-juice. Meerschaum pipes and violins are not the only things which improve with age and use. Our fellows improve wonderfully with age, just as the pristine, sparkling Caecuban ; but when, in addition they enjoy the benefit of ten months of faithful and systematic training and handling on the part of an untiring and solicitous physical-director, something is bound to happen. Well, three medals and a silver cup, won in the inter-class contests, speak for themselves. Our class-play presentation never was nor ever will be excelled. This statement may knock the wind out of someone, but it behooves one to speak the truth. Thru want of fitting words, silence here is the best eulogy. Historian. 37 Sophomore History 1 909. T HE steady grind of Freshman year thoroughly sharpened our wits and claws; and we appeared in the Fall of 1906 a band of wonderfully developed organisms, altho all had a speck of the motley. ’09 could now boast of a “ Socratic Circle.” How often in that subterranean kitchen, rang loud its learned discussions, — interrupted more or less (usually more) by aerolitic remnant edibles and the profuse arguments of the omniscient Kemptonite ! In our midst w T as also a Longfellow (name appropriate) whose scope of composition widens daily, for it varies in direct ratio with the capacity of his stomach. One could derive more inspiration from hearing his highly polished hexa- meters on “ Anglo-Saxon curves ” than any Greek from Demosthenes. However, the time arrived for us to show the Freshmen our physical supremacy. To this end they were challenged to a bowl-fight, fought Sept. 18, N. W. 6. N. 31 rods from the Mathematical Department. Ah! that was no off day for ” holiday Israel,’’ whose whip-like, Judaic sinews shone under old Sol’s ardent rays like the lamps of the wise virgins. That collision of Jew, Jap and Gentile was a simultaneous repetition of Liao-yang and Gettys- burg. In the face of odds, we simply walked over the Freshies, who have been out of spirits (not liquid) ever since; and it is due to sympathy alone that we did not play the foot-ball game to which we challenged them. Toward the close of their tad-pole stage, they thrice hauled down their flag in submission to our swarthy base-ball nine! Never was the city of dough-twisters more highly honored than on the night of Feb. 22,. ’07, when our fellows enjoyed to their entire satisfaction the appointments and service of the Hotel Penn, Reading, — the scene of our Soph, banquet. Everyone longed for an extra alimentary canal to do justice to the sumptuous menu. And oh! those sprightly waitresses! After numerous quaffs of punch, and prolonged inhalations from that “ fusiform, spiral- wound bundle of chopped stems and miscellaneous incombustibles,” the toastmaster went on duty. We regret that he was incapacitated by reason of his frock-coat to attend the roller-rink. Sixteen loyal sons of ’09 responded with excellent toasts. The next day was spent in sight-seeing, and as the shades of twilight were encroaching our boys departed in fine Pullman cars, eager to learn more about Swatapluk and the Popes. Historian. Junior History 1 909 “ Oh truth. Thou art. whilst tenant in a noble breast, A crown of crystal in an iv’ry chest ! ” T RUTH, which should be the first lesson of the child and the last inspiration of manhood, is for all a virtue worth cultivating, whose atmosphere it befits man to breathe freely, since it is the basis of his happiness. It has been well said that the inquiry of truth, which is the love-making of it, the knowledge of truth, which is the presence of it, and the belief of truth, which is the enjoying of it, are the sovereign good of human nature. We need not say as Pilate did “ What is Truth ? ” Truth is not contained in Aristotle, or even in the alphabet ; but is completely embo- died in the Incarnate One. The path to truth, however, is little trodden, — there are multitudes still extolling thru obstinacy their all-sufficient Diana, as the Ephesians of old. The adoption of this motto — “ Veritatis Cultores ” — furnishes an example of the lofty principles which are spurring ’09 in its glorious career, — a class which will some- time, no doubt, thru constant inclination to truth, scientific and moral, prove an important agent of the world’s destiny. Since its organization, the class has always played an important role in all college affairs, being constantly mindful of devolving duty and responsibility, as well as of opportunities for mental improvements, — “ Whene ' er a noble deed is wrought. Whene’er is spoken a noble thought, Our hearts in glad surprise To higher levels rise. " During the present collegiate year it has furnished the bulk of players on our all-conquering foot-ball team, ten members of the Glee Club, and eight characters in the college play ; and from the Delphic shrine comes the news that it will boom things equally well next year ! The loss of Sandt was retrieved by the advent of Mueller and prodigal Wohlsen. Historian. 39 CLASS POEM 1909. Far from the noise of the city. From the whizz and whirr of wheels. The Junior leads a life of ease, Flis fate he never seals; For studies e’er are his delight He works with conscience true ; He stands for strength and purity ; To labor and to do. No study does his mind subdue. He is so bright and wise, He loves the honor of his class, For her he dares and dies. For Muhlenberg, his Mother true. He holds sincere esteem ; For her he lives unswervingly, He has no fancy dream. What colors float above his head Which e ' er his eyes behold It is the blue of loyalty And white of purest fold. These colors ne er have been bestrewed With spots impure, unclean ; They ' ve floated in the breeze on high Mid storms and times serene. The heights that others have once climbed He gains with mirthful ease, He travels fearless, undismayed He sails through dangerous seas. Attains the heights, and guards them sure, Which seas can never drown, He runs the race of college life And wins the promised 40 crown. NAME. COURSE. JOHN S. ALBERT, . . . . A. B. WARREN M.

Besides his brilliant rescue of Lazarillo from self-imposed death he preserved to us his own invaluable life by cooly step- ping off a railroad track as a train came rushing along some fifty miles away.

The maroon and white is a shining light, And a stepping-stone for you; Now it goes before, it shall wane no more, And its conquerors are few. Tis the emblem then of Nineteen-ten, As it ever waves on high; So where’er you II be, you can always see It’s defenders standing by. So the hardy men of Nineteen-ten Will in truth march on before In Athletics new, in our studies too, We ll eclipse the men of yore. 1 hen within the field, we will never yield While the years shall still endure; And you ask us why, for we all rely On the Maroon and White so pur?, We re a jolly crowd as we roam about In these halls of fame renowned; Just you li;ten now and we ll teach you how These few golden hours were crowned. As we march along let us sing a song, And then raise our standard nigh; We re the hardy men of Ninteen-ten, And Maroon and White ranks high. 64 What was the cry that filled us with dismay On that bright, cool and clear Sep- tember morn? ' Twas but the echo of a parting day Sadly echoing ‘‘Freshmen were born. " Up from the grass the cry was ever given When from its biothers it was badly torn, Then far it came from clear, resplen- dent heaven. With the notes sadly " Freshman were born.

T HE history of our class, though necessarily brief, is one of which we are justly proud, for though we have not as yet won many great athletic contests nor taken any literary prizes, still our history thus far would seem to indicate that our class will yet be known and looked up to as one of the most prominent that has ever been at Muhlenberg. We numbered thirty when we entered college in September and all except one have up to this time survived the exams and are now fast approaching the end of our Freshman year. We are sorry to record that Ely left college after Thanksgiving Day. When we presented Dr. Waekernagle with the turkey, just before Thanksgiving Day, Ely made the English presentation speech. Perhaps the strain was too great! Our class has members representing many of the largest and most prominent cities and towns in the eastern part of the country, such as Philadelphia, Rochester and Shamrock. As to individual size, the members of our class vary from great, and ponderous, two-hundred pound Baringer to wee nintv-five pound Miller. It is to be regretted that our class was not represented bv a single man on the college eleven of this year, but we feel confident that this will not be the case during the remaining years of our course. In our foot ball game with the .Sophs we put up a stiff fight but were defeated by the close score of eleven to six. Our defeat was due to the fact that most of our men had never played a game before while the Soph team was composed almost entirely of ex- perienced men and included a number of men who were varsity players. In basket-ball we have been more fortunate as three of our men are among the seven which made up the col- lege team. Our class ball team has also done excellent work. What we shall accomplish in the line of base-ball and track remains yet to be seen, but the indications are that we will be well represented in both. Though we have thus far not been very prominent along athletic lines, in intellectual attainments our class, as a whole, has maintained a very high standard through the year. As the end of the college year draws near, the interest of the entire class is centered in the presentation of our play, and we feel confident that it will be a success in every way. Our Freshman year is fast drawing to a close and we look forward eagerly to what may be in store for us dur- ing the coming three years, but we confidently believe that the class of 1911 will aid very materially in making Muhlenberg a college inferior to none. Historian CLASS SONG, “1911 [Tune Cyuga) We re the class with names immortal Ever fierce and true, Gazing through the open portal Distance lends a view Of our work on field, in battle, In our class regime, We re no more the despised chattel; We re the class supreme. While the hours of time are fleeting Work is ours to do; h rom it are we ne’er retreating; We are staunch and true. Studies to us are a pleasure; We are sage and wise; To them we give truest measure, — Knowledge ne’er despise. Alma Mater, we adore thee Loyal Sons are we; Bending low the knee before thee, Show humility. When from thee we have departed, We will praise thy name, That the worn and weary hearted May reveal thy fame. 70 71 SOCIETIES. Break forth in song, O grand Aeolian lyre, Sing forth the praises of a countless throng, Who have displayed in the unsullied fire What grand achievements e’er to them belong. Sing forth their praises, they have done their part, By a pure mind and a truthful heart. Can we then linger on their worth alone ? Have not we also messages to give ? Not like bard Orpheus can we move the stcne, Nor for the Muses are we prone to live, Give of our worth and fight a noble fight Clinging to right and truth, the ways of light. In thy pure, mellow and melodious strains Sing sweet and clearly of the paths of life, Not in harsh, sad, but in distinct refrains Send forth the notes of love, to win the strife. Ours is a work that needs strong, willing minds, That for the true and just rich pleasure finds. 72 Euterpea Literary Society. OFFICERS. PRESIDENT ALFRED M. STUMP VICE PRESIDENT WILLIAM B.

This motto has stirred everyone, who has W been under the influence of the Muse of song, to great and noble efforts. Her sons have ever been true to her colors and have made her name resound in every walk of life. The graduates are scattered to the four winds of hea- ven, yet they ever remember their Alma Mater. Through graduation she lost five members, two being honor men, but has, during the year added sixteen members to her roll, which now numbers fifty-four, no doubt the highest number ever enrolled in Euterpea. From this number Euterpea expects great things and will cherish the fondest hopes that they will not be out done by her former graduates. Euterpea ! That name is ours To cherish and to bless. You fill us with ennobling powers, And us with love caress. No name is cherished by her sons As this, thy name sublime Which always through our spirit runs, With all the lapse of time. 75 Sophronia PRESIDENT VICE PRESIDENT RECORDING SECRETARY CORRESPONDING SECRETARY TREASURER ASSISTANT TREASURER CRITICS ....

Lawall Harvey R. Miller Edgar F. Romig Harry G. Stuart 77 History of Sophronia Literary Society. G OD, that all powerful Creator of nature and Architect of the world, has impressed man with no character so proper to distinguish him from other animals, as by the faculty of speech; but the relation literature in general bears to poetry, speech in its common significance, bears to eloquence. Ever since the days of the Patriarchs men have been striving to draw forth the beauty of the mind by cultivating this faculty, and to express thought in words sweetly placed and modestly directed’, for eloquence like a flame requires matter to feed it, and motion to excite it. A notable movement in that direction occurred in eighteen hundred and sixty-seven, when Sophronia Literary Society was organized to improve the natural ability of speaking and to cultivate the art of oratory. Altho having a somewhat slow and infirm inception, she has hitherto always maintained an accelerated march of progress, so that now she proves a mighty and conspicuous head-light for Greater Muhlenberg in her rapid develop- ment. The Society now occupies a spacious, neatly re-modeled hall facing the West, the direction of progress; has a healthy membership; and possesses a fine library which, with the books added this year, includes three thousand volumes. All of the books have been reshelved, renumbered and catalogued during the past year, thus insuring even better service than ever before. The library embraces works on art, religion, science, history, fiction, biography and philosophy, and furnishes a ready reference for the members of the Society. New books are added continually. Sophronia can well feel proud of her past. It is only thru the refining fire of many trails that she can lay claim to her present glory. What has aided a great deal in her success is her motto: ' ' The End Crowns the Work, ’ ’ which has been her watchword ever since her organization. This year again she carried off the palm in the Inter- Society Contest. In her ranks are always found excellent representatives of all the sports which now occupy so great a place in the student’s catalogue, and are indispensable to any College life. All indications point to a bright future for the Society; and may all her sons always realize the fact that it means work to attain an end, and remember also, that “The End Crowns the Work.’’ 78 DjicJuu PJt Uo.

M UHLENBERG had the honor of being represented by delegates at the last conference at Northfield from June 28 to July 7. The delegates reached Northfield by way of New York City, going from thence thru Long Island Sound bv Steamer as far as New London, Connecticut, from which place the Central Railroad of Vermont took them direct to The Conference. Northfield lies on the beautiful banks of the Connecticut River, in a country surrounded by pine forests. It is situated near the northern border of Massachusetts, just three miles south of the junction of the States of Ver- mont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Everything at Northfield is in harmony. The many delegates from all the various colleges and universities of the East are by means of the The Conference bound into one great and noble brotherhood. The very atmosphere of the place causes all to become friends. The object of The Students Conference is to promote The Kingdom of God thru College Men. By listening to the various addresses made by devout men, many a young man has his career changed, and when he leaves Northfield he feels that in this place God has spoken to him and has pointed out to him that which He desires him to do. But these addresses, though they formed perhaps the central feature of the conference life, gathering under one roof the whole conference, yet they were but a part of the varied activities of the day. These ranged in case of the college men, from group Bible classes, in which were enrolled a greater proportion of the members of the con- ference than ever before, to the field sports of July 4, in which Princeton came off with first honors, followed in order by Harvard, Yale and Mount Herinon, and the traditional celebration and bonfire of the evening. The Round Top meetings of this conference were devoted to the problem of the choice of a life work, the opportunities offered by the ministry, the mission field, journalism, etc., being presented. Results are hard to measure ; but if a deepened prayer life and a new strength of resolution on the part of a young man, and a complete transformation of character in the case of numbers of others, may be set down as results, the conference at Northfield, of 1907, was crowned with a success even greater than that won by its prede- cessors. 86 THE “MUHLENBERG " STAFF The Muhlenberg Staff. 1907-1908.

How few have prized thee as they ought, How few have praised thy name. How few with thee have cast their lot, How few rehearsed thy fame ? For other ranks they worked wilh mi ght For other ranks have striven They have not weighed in clearer light What thou to them hast given. Shall we then toil in nature’s weahh In mines of knowledge deep ? And never drink to thee, thy health ? Let silence o’er thee creep ? Let us forever delve in thee And hunt for richer gems Give e ' er for thee our strongest plea, Crown thee with diadems. Still close to thee then let us cling, Our hearts and hands unite, To us the purest knowledge Lring. No mortal wilt thou slight ; May those who wander far away, Be ever drawn to thee That to their life’s fast ebbing day, Thy beauty they may see. Then upward, higher let us climb. Turn thou our darkness, light ; That always on the dial of time Thy name may shine full bright. May we remember thee for aye, Nor e ' er forget thy name Dear Muhlenberg, from day to day.

Weber 106 Athletics at Muhlenberg. lb A S the last echo of the college cheer died away on last Thanksgiving Day, the greatest athletic season Muhlen- berg ever had, passed into history. During the season a great change had taken place in the old college. hour years ago when we moved to our present site there was no college spirit in the undergraduate body. To-day the students almost to a man, are most earnest supporters of their college. The alumni, a few excepted, took no active part in student interests pertaining to the general welfare of the college. I o-day there is much enthusiasm among our graduates as is shown by the manner in which many are supporting their alma mater. hew were the friends who supported college athletic activities, but to day they not only give us their presence at the games but their money as well, not only for athletic but for college purposes. Many of our neighboring institutions of learning did not recognize us. To-day they show us many courtesies not only athletically but also along scholastic lines. 108 What has brought about this change ? Nothing but the development of athletics along proper amateur lines under faculty control. Many were the harsh criticisms, two or three years ago when we played “Prep” and Normal schools instead of colleges, — but we were playing in our class. The wisdom of such a policy was shown, in that, when we were fit for better things we were recognized and last year several large colleges invited us to play with them. Only college iecuns were played last fall and that will be our policy in the future. That this rapid development has been wholesome, we quote the following eligibility rules : (1.) ‘ ' For athletic teams of this institution, only those students shall be eligible who are regularly registered and attending at least seven hours per week. (2.) No student shall be eligible who is deficient in one third or more of his subjects. (3.) No special student who is conditioned in one or more subjects shall be eligible. (4.) No student shall be eligible who has received money or other compensation for competing or instructing jn any athletic sport. (5.) No student being conditioned in one or more subjects shall be eligible for the captaincy of any team.” 109 Last December it was the writer’s privilege to attend the meeting of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association Meeting of the United States. Much of the proposed legislation for the cleansing of college athletics were rules already put into effect at Muhlenberg. In reality we were two or three years in advance of the larger institutions. When proposed by larger institutions they were heralded with delight but when first put into effect at Muhlenberg it was said “ the faculty has taken a step backward.” As yet all our efforts have been directed to the development of strong foot-ball teams, and this policy we in- tend to continue for the reason that foot-ball is the only true college sport. Our very successful season last year was due to the fact that we were able to receive a coach second to none at a minimum cost. How Dr. Geo. O. Barclay showed his ability in that direction is well known and the securing of him as Prof, of Physical Education assures us of our success in the future. Again we had an excellent manager one who never worked for personal glory or popularity among the students but always for the good of the institution. Again gccd material whose habits were such that it was an easy matter to keep them in condition for none of them were addicted to intoxicating liquors, and few to the tobacco habit. 110 Again for the first time the student body, almost to a man, and many of our alumni and friends gave us their unqualified support. In this connection it should be noted that very effective work in the way of securing money for athletic pur- poses was done by Mr. O. F. Bernheim the treasurer of the association. This year our basket-ball team has had a very successful season, winning all the games with one exception. Hereafter basket ball will be discontinued as an inter-collegiate sport. We believe the rules are such that no inter- pretation of them can be made to eliminate the unnecessary roughness. That the game is detrimental to the health of the players — due to the fact that the game is always played in-doors, amid clouds of dust and foul air. That our cage does not offer the proper facilities either for playing the game or for the accommodation of spectators. Lastly that it has always been a losing proposition financially. This spring our base-ball team is being coached by Mr. A. S. Landgraff of the Allentown Atlantic League Team. We were fortunate in securing his valuable services. Our prospects are bright for next year. We have the support of the many, we also want the support of the few. If you cannot give us financial support give us your good wishes and boom things bv always speaking a good word for us. Ill Athletic Association Hon. J as. L. Schaadt, ' 74 Fied.

At the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of Muhlenberg College, Wednesday afternoon, Oscar F. Bernheim was elected Treasurer of the Institution to succeed Rev. Ur. C. J. Cooper. The other officers elected were Judge Gustav A. Endlich, of Reading, President of the Board, and Rev. W. D. C. Keiter, of West Bethlehem, Secretary. Mr. Bernheim was formerly engaged in business in this city, and is a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church. In the absence of Judge Endlich, Reuben J. Blitz, Esq., presided. The position of Registrar, which was held by Dr. Cooper, was not filled but the Executive Committee was given authority to name the man for the position. It was stated that the newly elected Treasurer would be named for the position. Rev. Charles M. Jacobs was appointed as a member of the faculty as Professor of History. Heretofore Rev. Jacobs was an instructor The Executive Committee was empowered to renew the option given the City of Allentown to purchase the old Muhlenberg College site at Fourth and Walnut Streets for park purposes. The same committee also empow- ered the addition to the chemical laboratory. It was announced that changes would be made in the faculty from time to time ; and that Robert A. P ' ritsch would occupy the Greek chair next year, in the absence of Professor Horn who would attend Harvard. It was determined to reduce the charges in the biological department, making this college course one of the most reasonable to be secured at any college. The prices are now : Six dollars for the first two years and nine dollars for the last two years. The members of the Board who attended the meeting were as follows: Rev. M. C. Horine, D. D.; Rev. Edward T. Horn, D. D., LL. D.; Samuel N. Potteiger, Esq., Reading; Rev. James O. Schlenker, Hazleton ; Rev. J. L. Becker, Lansdale ; Rev. W. D. C. Keiter, Bethlehem ; Rev. Oscar E.

From the cold and frozen north, from the balmy everglades of the south, from the east and the west, the alumni of Euterpea came, and all joined in the great event. President Coleman, ’08 declared the Society open, and all joined in singing “ Euterpea Glee.” Rev. Dr. Rehrig, of Mauch Chunk conducted the devotional exercises. Dr. G. T. Ettinger, ’80 was called to preside over the meeting. After a few introductory remarks the fol- lowing program was rendered. Alma Mater Oration, ” The College and the Collegemati” Piano Solo Recitation, ” The Barefoot Bov” Piano Solo, After this excellent program the older members gave very instructive remarks, which were enjoyed by all present. Delicious refreshments were served, and everything brought fond recollections to the old and distinguished alumni. But soon the hours passed. With many handshakings and cheers for Grand Euterpe , all dispersed, having been refreshed with new thoughts, new inspirations and fond hopes for a Greater Muhlenberg. Society A. T. Michler, ’07 Earl Laros, ' 10 Walter Sandt, ’09 Earl Laros, ' 10 148 Sophronia Literary Society Reunion. The renovated hall was handsomely decorated with College banners and pennants, presenting a very inviting appearance. An enthusiastic band of loyal Sophronians, old and new, climbed the three sturdy flights of stairs to enjoy the meeting, which began about 2.30 P. M. Mr. Shinier, who we, are proud to say, was the winner in the Inter-collegiate Oratorical Contest, gave an ad- dress of welcome, and called on Rev. Keever ' 86 to act as chairman. In his own peculiar humorous and pleasant manner he took the chair. After the “ Welcome " hymn was sung, Mr. Funk rendered a pleasing selection on the piano, and Mr. Hassler sang two entertaining solos. Rev. E. E. Campbell, of Irving College honored the meeting with his presence, and assured the members that the people at Irving College awaited them with a glad hand and a warm heart. The reunion would have been incomplete had not dear old Dr. Wackernagle entered the hall at this part of the program. Amid unceasing applause the Doctor took the chair, and after he had recovered himself delivered an instructive and humorous ad- dress. Most of the Alumni had a message to give, which filled all present with enthusiasm. Meanwhile some of the members of the Society showed their ability as waiters, and served the guests with pleasing refreshments, which consisted of ice-cream, lemonade-punch and cake. After a most enjoyable afternoon, another successful year for Sophronia was closed, with brilliant prospects for the next year. 149 Fortieth Annual Commencement. Lyric Theatre, June 20, 1907.

Being desirous of widening my experience, as well as for pleasure’s sake, I determined to make a journey in 1925 the extent of which was to be governed by my means, and whose course was to lie, as far as possible, in the path of greatest civilization. The first point of extended observation was afforded at New York, and I immediately decided to gain the top of that noble edifice the Singer building. Upon arrival I entered the elevator car which was run bv a pilot polite, in whom I soon recognized the features of Henry of Lancaster. After a spirited, reminiscent conversation, a loosening of brakes, and a sudden rise of the mercury, we resisted gravity about twenty feet a second. From the top I got a birds-eye view of Wohlsen’s great Aluminum warehouse, which I visited before leaving the city. I then descended and was long perplexed as to Henry’s silence on the downward journey, but after reviewing several laws of Physics I found one perfectly applicable to the situation — “ Hot air always rises.” Mounting a trolley car, I was carried thru the street at a funeral pace ; and not being approached, I turned about, out of curiosity, to discover the whereabouts of the nickle-snatcher . I soon perceived that part of the crew enjoying a peaceful siesta on the rear seat, and when I approached, it was none other than Warren Beidler in blue. He was glad I wakened him, and said he still enjoyed sleeping as well as when at Muhlenberg, but missed his apples. Of course I rode free, but I had to shut up about it. I counted 32 passengers and 23 recorded fares. Before quitting the Metropolis, I resolved to visit Aluminum Pete. When still seven blocks away methought I passed thru a smoke-house ; in fact it seemed like Pittsburg. Finally I arrived and found around the table Shoeneberger and Hauser, who also were visitors, and Pete with his pipe enjoying a game of Haas en Peffer. As I entered rather quietly, they were scared and thought it was Dr. , but they soon calmed down and conversation began when suddenly, a powerful stream of H20 crashed thru the window from a city fire-engine, summoned to extinguish a supposed blaze at the Aluminum Ware- house. Pete took it good naturedly, altho we were all sprinkled, and remarked it reminded him verj much of his Freshman shower bath. The next place of interest — Chicago was reached by air-ship, but due to a high wind a safe landing could be effected only in the suburbs of the city. We alighted in a corner of an undulating field in which a foot-ball game between two rival teams of cops and trolley-conductors was in progress. I was just in time to see the only scoring 167 of the game by the right end of the latter team, and that on a fluke. Upon inquiring I learned he was formerly end on Muhlenberg’s famous 1907 and 1908 foot-ball teams. All American right end of 1923 and last season’s manager of the Kalamazoo South Michigan base ball team. Yes, there was Allie Butz champing his nose-guard like a demon. After we had discussed Muhlenberg’s recent defeat of Penn, and several of Bacon’s Idylls, he joined his team which was then driven thru the streets on a hay wagon to the tune of “ Hail the Conquering Hero Comes.” I decided to ’ hoof it’ awhile and soon arrived at one of the city parks. As I approached the laughing gallery everything seemed to be in vibration, and upon entering out of curiosity, I found the cause of all this convulsion at the centre of cur- vature of a large concave mirror — Pud Reed with one of his laughing fits. Having watched him fully twenty minutes, I finally learned that he had been returned by mistake fora condemned porker to a Chicago meat establish- ment, but that he was about to return Hastily to Brewerytown to ‘ to walk the baby.’ One always enjoys sweet ex- periences when abroad, and one of these I had indeed when, sauntering down the street and leisurely observing the various types of humanity thru as many rings of cigar smoke, we presently beheld our old sport — Beau Shugar, former Penn, representative of Sears Roebuck, clad in tuxedo, patent leathers and kids, driving a number of worn- out nags purchased at a bargain sale. He informed us he carried on a successful horse business in the East, and was enjoying a sweet married life, being already blessed with five little lumps of sugar of the granulated variety. As a matter of harmless amusement he had by this time become worship minister of the Masons, goodness of hope of the Odd P ' ellows, sword-swallower of the Finnegans, two-edged tomahawk of the United Order of the Red Men, tale-bearer of the Merciful Manikins, double-barreled dictator of the Knights of the Brass Circles and Puissant Potentate of the Petrified Pollvwogs. Next day I resolved to better my spiritual interests at the Blake St. Lutheran Church, but was greatly disappointed. After two anthems from a phonograph, and a lengthy prayer with soft organ accom- paniment, the minister in stentorian voice bellowed out his sermon, an extract of which I remember: — Liebe Gemeinde.wissen sie net verwas Eve gefalla iss? Sie war uf’n Bananaschall geschliffa. Darum sut ma aeht gewa und immer sehna was uf’m Bodem legt, so finna ma also-mole en Shtiek Geld. Enyhow ich been froh doss so viel Glieder do sin, und ich huff dass i hr all gebessert warra sin und en gross Haufer Geld uf’m Dollar lega. Yer- brennta Suppagnoeha schmacka viel besser wanu ihr so tlnia.” After the service he was introduced to me as Rev. Kern. Near Pike’s Peak a certain stake-dotted region indicated the presence of some surveying party, and upon further observing the flitting landscape I was dumbfounded at seeing Shelly with an uplifted pole running to the as- 168 sistance of Schumaker treed by a grizzly. I knew they were out there determining the volume of the Rockies for a prize offered by the New York Journal, but had no fears about their safety. Next week I read of their success in the venture, and that with the money won they had bought a new ironing board and six bales of red paper for our mathematical department. Longing to taste native California fruit, I paused before a greatly laden stand the proprietor of which had evidently eaten himself into a state of great satisfaction, as I judged from the great number of banana-peels lying about. Not always can the whole be judged from any one of its parts, but when I saw that immense Hapsburg pro- boscis, there stood before me our old-time parasite — Rudolph, assorting a large collection of ladie’s handkerchiefs made during his college days. He informed me he was about to present them to his wife to dry the copious croco- dile tears she invariably shed over his superb poetic compositions. Soon a customer arrived measuring only one third the height of the proprietor, and after a little talk the latter called and introduced me. I immediately knew little ” Runt” Fasig, as the first thing he did was to offer us some salted-crackers. We learned that he was sales- man for Reed’s Biscuit Corporation, and had, by invariably slipping under a seat, thus travelled the breadth of the continent free. He informed us that the government had recently transplated a lot of lobsters fron St. Lawrence Bay to Puget Sound, and that bv accident Bossard and Kline were enclosed in the lot, but had fortunately made their escape to this city and were now starring in Duffy’s Chinatown Minstrels. The trio of us accordingly attended one evening’s performance, but it in no wise met our expectations. In fact it was so rank as to make us ashamed of ourselves. The thing wasn’t worth half the admission fee, and after all was over we had to painfully force our way thru a Chinese mob who brandished canes, pistols and butcher-knives, threatening to murder the occupant of the box- office if he did not deliver. Enough Chinatown for us ! The only souvenir taken from ’Frisco was a charming bed- bug bite on my left shin which night and day required vigorous rubbing, especially as I sat on deck where I was wont to recall the times when we thru raging tempests, piloted imaginary ships to unknown quarters, and endured the awful devil-sent trials of navigation ! The crackers which my friend gave me on shore I found ver} ' stale and unpalatable, and remembering the injunction — “Cast thy bread upon the waters,” I threw them overboard where they were immediately appropriated by the gulls. On board there was an old German with a tiny babv, which gave him no end of trouble ; and on one occasion when the lacteal food supply became exhausted, a crowd gathered to sympathize with him as on his knee he balanced his howling progeny. After all attempts to quiet it failed, for the kid was hungry, the father drew something from his pocket, and as he smilingly jammed it in its mouth was heard to say ” Ven my baby vants milk, I somedimes gif him a milk-ticket.” While walking the deck, I noticed a beautiful maiden gazing intently upon the water as if resolving upon a tragic end. I became aware that she was a poetess of marked ability when, upon addressing her, she thus replied : I stand beside the rail I’m looking rather pale ; Am I looking for sail ? No I’m not. I’m a missionary’s daughter, Casting bread upon the water In a way I hadn ' t ought ter, That’s what ! The party addressed was none other than Rachel Grossman, about to visit her father who had long since turned Christian and was letting his light shine as Missionary in the Phillippines for the last five years ; and a hearty invitation to visit them was too gladly accepted. Two more days of travel, and we had crossed Benjamin’s thresh- hold on the outskirts of Manila. On the stove was frying a large ham, now his chief food, while from opposite corners of the room were suspended strings of empty, polished lard kettles. On the right wall were hung conspic- uously three large letters of red — " I. H. S.” After hearty greetings were exchanged and appetite appeased, the day was spent in recalling fond memories. He confessed it had been an awful hard matter to turn Christian, as he was now obliged to forego at least seventy holidays in a year, but that after much persuasion he made the decision. I am glad I turned,” said he, “ for whereas once I was blind now I see ; and what is more I have now escaped the everlasting tortures of the seventh and nethermost hell. I have also alienated that Jewish spirit of gain. I perform all marriage ceremonies free, for I don’t wish to profit by other people’s mistakes.” Next day I attended a session at his mission, and never in my life heard I New Testament doctrine propounded with more fervor. On the return, numerous gangs of men were seen filling in great depressions in the ground. These I learned were some of the indelible foot-prints of Mr. Taft, made on his recent world tour. As I had met the majority of my class-mates, the others naturally soon became the subject of conversation. I was surprised as well as grieved to hear that " Duke” Stetler had just sailed for the United States, having spent a two months’ vacation on the islands as a relief from his job of signing chorus girls, which kept the ‘ Duke’ ever on the jump. Further, Ben told me that Green and Nonamaker were endeavoring to Christianize the pavnims in India, but had by this time only about nine converts. Immediately I resolved to visit them, but not until mv eyes had seen the ’ ’ Land of the Rising Sun. ” Next day I bade Ben and his household farewell and departed for Tokyo. Upon arriving there I found the city in a state of great jubilee, and was told this celebrated the advent of “ Reds” Albert as coach of the Japanese Inter- national foot ball team. After a long search, I found him on duty in a deserted rice field, instructing the eleven in 170 Esperanto. Practice was called a few minutes, during which I talked with our old quarterback. I found he was still a paying member of the “ Red Nose Club,” and had three years previous coached a pennant-winning team in Borneo, where Eaubach and Rupp were at present engaged in biological research, in the hope of discovering the missing-link. Tokyo proved an agreeable place, but the trip to Calcutta also had its charms. At the latter place Nonamaker was stationed, as he also pursued the work of ' Pearl ' fisher as a side issue. He was still a bachelor, and smoked thirteen pipes a day. As Green with his family of seven was stationed only twenty miles inland, my next desire was to see him, which was only partially fulfilled however. When we arrived, his better-half informed us he had gone on a stroll along the Ganges, and his long absence had caused her great uneasiness. While walking along its banks our fears were realized, for we discovered thereon a pair of feet, which at once revealed his sad fate. Some crocodile had feasted on green-goods! This made both of us so sick as to require the assistance of three medicine-men, who administered some anaesthetic and sent us on to the coast strapped on an elephant’s back. We recovered fully in three days, whereupon special services were immediately held in honor of the departed. A col- lection was also taken for his bereaved family, but this was appropriated by Nonamaker for a new Meerschaum smoking outfit. Disgusted at his all-round conduct, I stole away secretly and embarked for Europe. It was not long before the mountains of Greece loomed up in all their beauty ; and I was seized at once with a desire to visit old historic Sparta. Then ‘ Botsford’ had a deeper meaning for me. As I walked along and viewed the restored temples, the statues and monuments, the buildings and parks, a red-devil auto suddenly sped down the street like a flash, demolishing three obelisks in its path. Therein was seated a man with a pompadour — old Spartan Marcks with the goggles, and at his side a fair representative of the opposite sex, who I learned was Clytaemnestra, his queen. True to Spartan character, Fred, was the very embodiment of boldness and heroism; and as a result of his noble deeds, there were by this time in store for him a Carnegie medal, and the order of the Green Chrysanthemum. In the rear of his residence was flourishing not an olive, but a great prune orchard whose fruit always graced his table, together with cheese and jellv-rolls received in great consignments direct from Emaus. Before retiring, he invariably invoked a curse upon the old Emaus trolley-line, drank two cups of cocoa, and then put a volume of Keats under his pillow, which he claimed insured anyone pleasant dreams. There were two daily papers issued in Sparta, and as I picked up an issue one day, my attention was drawn to an item in the science column which read : “ We desire our readers to disregard and take no alarm whatever at the statement lately put forth by Mr. McCormick, now in Africa, to the effect that ‘ man is a cousin to the potato bug several billion times removed.’ His reputation as a freak-scientist is world- wide and he is simply striving for the moment to be the focus of the world’s attention.” As there was plenty of time at my disposal, Athens was next visited. The only incident which marred the otherwise delightful trip occurred when Fritz’s red-devil machine 171 half ascended the ruins of the Propolaea, and capsized with a crash which must have made the shade of Pericles howl. However after a libation of prune-juice was poured, the thing was finally righted and we concluded our spin. Here our ways parted — P ' ritz returned to Sparta, and I set out for Rome where I spent and read Three Weeks most profitably ? Altho I had an opportunity to see the Pope, I refused, for the simple reason I had had enough papacy to last me a life-time. At Paris all was bustle ; and in order to join in the tumult, I determined to glide down the boulevard to the French Academy on motor-skates. To my intense surprise I fell in with Billy Huff who was also on wheels and reading with relish the twentieth volume of Whitteker’s “ Elements of Literary Criticism.” He had come to Europe for two reasons — to have a special sensitive plate made by Lumiere in order to have his face photographed in its natural colors ; and to visit the great libraries for evidence that the Iliad was the source of inspiration for the “ Dis- sertation on Roast Pig.” Thruout my stay there, he visited the library every day from 6 A. M. to 11 P.M., carry- ing his food-supply in a shoe-box. What made my stay in Paris rather brief was the announcement that the Olympic Games would be held shortly in London, in which would compete a renowned American athlete by the name of Smith. Upon arriving, my suspicions were verified, for the representative was none other than Francis Smith our formidable full-back. A great reputation was his thruout the sporting world — two weeks prior he swam the English Channel balancing a box of writing-paper on his head, and then scaled the Eiffel Tower in five minutes; now he was to test his mettle at the games. Out of twenty-four events he won ten, and on one occasion the writer ap- plauded him so vigorously as to be ejected from the grounds. Numbered among the spectators was Witty-Ker, who had come from Oxford where he occupied the chair of English in the University, and in addition was editor of a daily literary pamphlet of thirty pages, the editorials of which invariably amounted to four-fifths of the contents. After the Games we gave our old college-yells and then departed. Smith and I arrarged to travel to New York to- gether, and upon reaching that place we found that Beidler had been ‘ fired ' from the trolley -force, and was now en- gaged as pin-bov in a bowling alley. The sole instance in which I departed from the path of greatest civilization occurred when I side-tracked to Freemansburg ; but I was bent upon seeing Eichnerwho, I supposed, was by this time a member of the town council. Sure enough ! The whole town was dressed in national colors, and bull-bands created pandemonium — all uniting to celebrate his election. I found him at his residence puffing rings from a campaign cigar ; but Floyd, alas, was bald ! He had lost all hope of getting a crop, having tried bone-phosphate, St. Jacob’s oil and various other fertilizers without visible or prospective benefit. I extended mv sympathy and congratulations. Floyd still held the office of Sunday School Superintendent, and had six sons whom he intended to send to Muhlenberg. After being quite roy- ally entertained, I arrived home by way of that wonderful Freemansburg trolley-line.

(IMPERIAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ANTIQUITIES.) American Sculpture of the Twentieth Century. if By permission of the Imperial Museum of American Antiquities, we here reproduce several pieces of American sculpture belonging to the famous collection of Dr. Coleman, Head Archeologist of the Imperial Uni- versity, whose excavations in and about the ancient city of Allentown and especially the discoveries following the unearthing of the College of Muhlenberg, have been so admirably described in his recently published four-volume ac- count of “The America of the Twentieth Era.’’ The subjects under discussion were the causes, so to speak, of the famous controversy between Dr. Coleman 174 and the other Archeologists headed by Dr. W. Knocker Huff. Dr. Huff, in a most virulent attack on the Imperial Excavator, openly denounced his reputed discoveries as a case of “unqualified falsification and misrepresentation in American Antiquities’’ and the now famous “Chronycles of ye Twentyth Cen- tury’’ by Rayl Road Rudolph, he declared to be a production of the shops built for manufacturing these antiquities and openly known, to exist for that very pur- pose. One of Dr. Huff’s strongest arguments is founded on the hitherto erroneous supposition fixed by misleading accounts in certain ancient documents, that the college was situated in Reading and not, as Dr. Coleman declared, in Allentown. But while the former very beautifully produced a theoretical college in Reading the latter brought forth the undeniable reality in the city of Allentown. Since Dr. Coleman’s position has been vindicated and his statements and discoveries coroborated by the Imperial investigation, these pieces of sculpture have been brought into a prominence second only to the famous Winged-Bull of London. On the 11th., of May, 7963 A. D., Captain Hardy and Lieut. Werner, of the 2nd., division Imperial Infantry, while sinking a shaft near the Avenue de Mastication, discovered, under a great pile of rubbish, the famous Sarcophagus of the three Kings. The execution of this piece has been assigned by the major- ity of critics to the famous sculptor, Smythe, tho some hold to Klyne or Rup, or even to a more obscure person named DeWhvt. These kings are now conceded, by nearly all authorities, to be George 1, of Latium, Wacky of Allemania and John 11, Tyrant of Maths. But little is known concerning the reign of George of Latium save his famous defense of Steelrayls as recorded in the well known chronicles of Rudolph. This Steelrayls was no doubt a famous sea-port town for the chronicler speaks frequently of the shipping. He was a wise and level-headed ruler, possibly too conservative, vet always having at heart the comfort and welfare of his subjects. Wacky of Allemania was an easy-going ruler, beloved of his subjects who, however, had no compunction about taking advantage of his benevolent nature to raise all kinds of disturbances and seriously embroil him with neighboring rulers. Of John 11, Tyrant of Maths, the chronicler’s opinion varies. He was a ruler, highly regarded by those who knew him, but to the majority of his sub- jects, because of h is tyrannical enforcement of his laws, he became an object of fear and dread. He had the record of having sent more men to the block than any other ruler of Maths. It is said that many of his subjects, eager to escape his iron rule, went into voluntary exile and settled down in Allemania. POPE JACOBS (Imperial Museum of American Antiquities) 175 PAN MARKS (From Mural Painting, in Temple of Pan Marks) (Imperial Museum of American Antiquities) Some five hundred feet east of this shaft Lieutenants Wunder and Bieber came upon the statue, thought by many critics to be that of Pope Jacobs, sometimes known as Hero- dotus. The sculptor, generally conceded to be Smythe, has represented him in one of his thoughtful, contemplative moods. We gather from the chronicles that he was the last of the great fighting popes. He wielded a mighty hand in both temporal and spiritual affairs and brought the chair to the highest point it had ever reached. On the 23rd of April, while sinking a shaft near the Avenue de Skidoo, Captain Reisner and Lieutenants Horn and Urich under the command of Colonel Curtis Miller of the 69th., Imperial Artillery, unearthed the Temple of Pan Marks — so named from the great mural decoration found therein. This sample of ancient wall-painting is, probably the mest unique piece of art ever brought to light in American ruins. It was discovered on the south wall of the western corridor by Dr. Jacks and under the direction of Henrich Mueller it was removed from its original posi- tion and sent to the Imperial Museum. With its peculiar half-men and half-goat form, it presents as unique and grotesque a figure as the Winged-Bull of Louden and was possibly the American god of m usic. It is supposed to be the work of the famous artist, Mykrud, tho up to the present the critics have been unable to come to any definite decision. In the great room along the eastern corridor of the Temple was found the group of statutes and busts which now form one of the most interesting sections of the Museum. The statues of Pop. 1, King of Fiziks and Bobbie 1, Tyrant of Helenn and the bust of the famous Phnperor John are, probably the first pieces that strike the average attention. Concerning Pop of Fiziks the chronicler has but little to say that is not laudatory. A great deal of his reign has fallen into the obscurity of the past but enough has Come down to us to let us known that he was of a brusk nature, 176 good-hearted, beloved of his subjects, but a terror to his enemies. He ruled his kingdom wisely and well and took especially interest in athletic contests, which, during his regime, became very prominent in the life of the day. He is said to have made an expedition into the wilds of New York sometime during 1908 and after a year of heavy battling, returned with great spoil. Bobbie 1, Tyrant of Helenn, was according to the chronicler, a good ruler, but gained his objectionable title of Tyrant thru the enormous and almost impossible tasks which he imposed upon his subjects. He was ambitious to a fault, seeking to outdo all former rulers of Helenn in the upbuilding and extending of his kingdom. In the summer of 1906 he made an expedition across the great sea returning in the Fall with much booty. In 1907, leaving the reins of government in the hands of his friend and couneelor, Robert the Socrates, lie invaded the north, returning after a years absence laiden with great spoil. The bust occupying the central position of the group is that of John the Great, Emperor of Cycolog, in all probabilities the most complicated, the most misunderstood, the most unappreciated character of the twentieth century. Maligned by his enemies with a maliciousness that is too contemptable for words, plots and conspiracies against his life and throne constantly arising throughout the Empire, yet he stood out above it all with one fixed purpose, one definite, determined aim, one goal toward which he toiled — the glory of his Empire. But he was human and had his faults. Quick of temper, hasty in judgment, intollerent of errors he soon succeeded in creating for himself a host of enemies. During certain seasons of the year he would glide here and there over his Empire inspecting the general conditions at each place- He ruled wisely and well; formed just laws and enforced them. His mere presence in Allemania quieted the usually turbulent citizens. He condemned and sent Karl Van Barrel- macher into perpetual exile for general conspiracy and inability to handle the exchequer, and many of his subjects repented their crimes with their heads on the block. As the famous critic, Seyler, once said: His moral excellence and mental uprightness could not be comprehended bv the people of that day. He lived many centuries ahead of his time. Last- of all we come to the busts of the two kings: Sol 1, King of Anglosacs, King Lear of Zoobios and also that of the great philosopher, Fritseh, better known as Robert the Socrates. Concerning Sol of Anglosacs, better known as Sol the pious, the chronicler has but little say. He seems to have been very good as a man, of a spotless, irreproachable character; but from the general conditions of his king- dom at that time, as reported by the chronicler, modern critics are somewhat inclined to believe that as a ruler he was rather weak. King Lear of Zoobios, better known as Lear theTaciturn or John the Silent, was a wise and extremely cau- tious ruler, seeking the advancement and welfare of his subjects without war or bluster. He made very little com- motion in the outside world, governing his kingdom well and quietly without interference from foreign potentates. 177 POP 1 JOHN OF CYCOLOG (Imperial Museum of American Antiquities I BOBBIE I Concerning Robert the Socrates we have heard before. His regencynin Helenn, during the absence of King Bobbie, was faithfully and conscientiously fulfilled and as a reward for his ability, the Emperor John bestowed upon him a portion of Allemania. His one great fault was his extremely great sarcasm and irony which gained for him a number of enemies. In general, however, he was greatly liked and proved to be a credit to the judgment of King Bobbie. These are the most famous pieces of Dr. Coleman ' s collection and will serve to show the reader the general type of American sculpture of the Twentieth Century. At present Dr. Coleman in company with Drs. Anthony and Beck, is engaged in making excavations in and about the ancient city of Mohnstown in hopes that they may be able to find some traces of the famous navy yard. Just what success may attend their efforts remains to be seen. KING SOL KING LEAR ROBERT THE PHILOSOPHER (Imperial Museum of American Antiquities) 179 Who utters these extracts? N. B.

Th is problem doesn ' t seem to be altogether clear. 1 guess we had better take it over again !” 180 The Campers. On July 15. 1907, the faculty met for a short meeting in the faculty room. The meeting was set for two- thirty, but they were delayed fifteen minutes waiting for Dr. Lear. This gentleman had started in due time, but finding a peculiar insect near the Fair Grounds, and examining it, he went home again to place it among his biological collection. At 2:45 P- m - the brethren had assembled, and were loitering in the hall, busilv engaged in discussing the pleasant object of the meeting, when the Dean came out and said: “Brethren, we cannot wait for the bell, sometimes it doesn’t ring; von can come in now. " After this official summons the dif- ferent members hastily assumed their respective chairs and waited for the President to speak. That individual immediately arose, and after a logical int roduction, full of " ergos and theret ' ores, " he said: “Gentlemen, you have done good work during the year. Every student you have conditioned has added another star to your crown. We need a rest, and I suggest that we go on a camping trip for a period not exceeding two weeks. " This statement was followed with great applause. Emails and Breinigsville were immediately suggested. The faculty was evenly divided, and there was bitter feeling between the two sides. What really happened can only be surmised. We can only hint at its true nature by referring the reader to page 189. Emails was finally chosen. The meeting then adjourned and Drs. Ettinger and Haas, in the ecstacy of this prospective sport, were trying to dance the Merry Widow Waltz when Fred. Marcks, ' 09, chanced along. Fred had come all the way from Emails to open the windows in the locker room. “We expect to spend a week on your Elysian shores,” said Prof. Jacobs to Marcks, upon seeing him. “How dost expect to get there. " said Fred. “By trolley, of course.” said Charlie, impatiently. " Beware! beware! ye reckless ones. Know ye not that who to Emails on trolleys dost ride, the natives do instantly devour? Beware! " Most of the boys were in a reckless mood, and little attention was paid to this warning. The next morning the jolly party assembled to take the nine o ' clock car at Sixth and Hamilton. Nine o ' clock came and all the boys were there but Ettinger and Bauman. The car came on time and Ettinger sur- prised the fellows by being on when it came to Sixth and Hamilton. He had been loafing at the Livingstone Club and boarded it at Seventh Street. Dr. Haas, almost missed the car. having gone to the telegraph office to send a telegram to the Young Women ' s Parasol League, informing them of his inability to deliver a lecture to them. Bauman, however, was still missing, and the boys, reluctantly started after holding up the car two 181 minutes in vain. Ochsenford and Fritsch remained on the back platform to finish their cigarettes. After a considerable distance had been made the car stopped to throw the target, and Solomon leaning out at the side of the car to flirt with a girl,, saw some one riding on a velocipede, fly past at a furious pace. By ten o ' clock, the party arrived safely at their destination, and to their great surprise and joy. Dr. Bauman was there waiting for them, having accomplished the trip safely on his famous 1853 model tricycle. By 10:30 the boys had selected a nice, shady, secluded spot, where they could pitch their tent. Wacky was immediately elected Captain of the camp. His first act of authority was to send Fritsch to the freight station to bring up the camping supplies. Being strongly opposed to the use of horses, he set out without any means of conveyance. Two hours later, four of the fellows found him struggling a half mile from camp with his heavy load, still refusing to use a horse. After much difficulty they finally succeeded in getting everything to the camp. Dinner was lnirriedlv taken. “Now it is getting late, we must pitch the tent,” said Wacky. " Mir missen uns eilen. " “Naturlich,” said Georgie, " tempus fugit. There are some chaps who hang around street corners ami say the world owes them a living, but we are none of those. " Every one immediately set to work. Bau- man carefully surveyed the site and determined the exact spot where the stakes had to be driven. Haas was immediately set to work to drive the posts, and Reese noticing the echo and the sound produced by his ham- mering. immediately took out his Siren and set to work to determine the power and force of the sound. He became so interested that he neglected his work. “Idepol! he should be made to work, " growled Georgie. who was perspiring freely. By 5:00 p.m., the tent had been pitched and things had been established in a fairly orderly way. Cook Haas prepared supper, of which all partook with a vim. By 6:30 everything had been removed and the fellows explored the vicinity of the camp. Soon after eight they came trooping in one by one, tired and worn out, and ready for bed. The next morning by 8 a.m. every one was at the breakfast table but Jacobs and Reese, when they be- gan to hear the distant murmuring and howling of a mob as if in anger and excitement. “Wolves,” said Georgie, trying to hide behind Ochsie. whose hands trembled so violently that he Iropped his knife. “Nein , nein, " said Wacky, calmly, reaching for another egg. But the noise rapidly approached, and alarm seized the campers. " Whither shall we flee. " said ' Cook Haas, turning pale as a sheet and rolling his eyes. " Call Jacobs and Reese. " commanded Wacky of Bauman, who immediately hastened to call them. " Come on, get up, the natives are approaching. " shouted John. “Then excommunicate them, and lav the interdict on the country, " said Jacobs drowsily, turning on his side, determined to get some more sleep. Bauman rejoined the others, 182 J » who could now plainly see a mob of people approaching. At a distance of about 200 paces they halted, and two men, evidently their leaders, approached. One was in civilian’s clothes, the other in the uniform of a police- man. " Well, well, Mr. Marcks, you almost scared us. " said Wacky, when they had approached sufficiently near that they could be recognized. For a reply Marcks bowed very formally and turning to his companion, said: " Dr. Wackernagel, allow me to introduce to you, the chief of the Alburtis police, J. Calvin Schugar.” After due civilities had been exchanged, Marcks said: " A very unpleasant lot has fallen to me. You have violated the laws of our republic. You have journeyed hither by trolley, and in behalf of the commonwealth of Emails, I command you to immediately leave our shores. " " Let us have a short meeting to consider it, " said Wackv. Marcks and Schugar withdrew to the mob, to permit the boys to decide what they would do. “But the faculty can’t meet except on Thursday nights, and this is Tuesday. To meet now is to set at naught all our time-hon- ored custom, " said Bob Fritsch. " Don ' t be foolish, " said Wacky, " I send you out, something must be done quickly. " Now Doc. Haas arises. " Why worry your heads about these benighted natives? Let me go and assuage their hurt feelings. Can ' t I. with my silver-tongued words and Demosthenesian gesticulation, pacify this indignant array? " Georgie made a motion to this effect, and Lear seconded it. Motion carried. With Na- poleonic dignity and Beau Brummelian swagger, he approached the mob. After a ten minutes’ flow of philo- sophical babbling and “agonizing attitudinizing,” the fury of the mob was increased sevenfold. " Give 11s our rights, " they shouted. " Down with the traction company! " And it was only by the rarest good fortune that he escaped the violence of the mob and regained the camp in safety. Consternation now reigned in the camp. Georgie was lighting one cigarette after another. Ochsie alone was calmly sitting at the foot of a tree, reading a volume of Pluck and Luck. Now Solomon goes forth. As David went forth with no other weapon but a stone in a sling to meet the giant Goliath, so Solomon with no- thing but a book in his hand, goes forth to appease the angry throng. Slowly and with dignity he began to elucidate to them from this book, which was his twenty-nine-year-old Anglo-Saxon History. E ut a few minutes had elapsed before a perceptible calm settled over that motley gathering. With his characteristic soothing tones he kept on reading. Soon one of the Emausians fell asleep. One by one they drifted into slumber land, some of the more pious repeating their prayers before composing themselves to rest. After twenty minutes, dead si- lence reigned, broken only by the occasional heavy snoring of some slumbering dreamer. Even Marcks and Schugar, who had. withstood sleep for an entire hour listening to the Shakespearean harangue indigenous to the English class-room, fell victims to that long-developed history of the Anglo-Saxon literature. " Nobly done, " said Wacky, when he returned to the camp. " Nobly done, " repeated the others. 183 Jacobs and Reese now awoke, and the next two hours were spent in re-telling and discussing Solomon’s brave deed. Haas and Marks set to work to prepare the fish for dinner, hut Marks became so interested in their scales that he was of little use. Bauman went privately to Haas and asked him to prepare feathers for the fellows to eat. and to place several at each man’s plate, so each one could cause his neighbor to laugh at the Dean ' s jokes. Haas, however, refused his request. After dinner Jacobs and Reese walked over to see the sleep- ing Emausians. When they came hack to the camp, Ochsie, Haas, Fritch, Lear and Marks had gone fishing. Bauman was oiling up his velocipede. ‘‘I’ll have to go in to college to post the weather forecast,” he said. “Let’s go and pitch. " said Reese to Jacobs, getting a hall and gloves. “Go along,” asked Reese of Georgie. " Well,” answered that individual, closing one eve tightlv and staring at him with the other, and selecting another cig- arette from his case, " I guess I’ll stay here and work out the schedule for next vear. " Left to himself, Georgie mused over his cigarette a long time, then finally decided to go swimming. Ten minutes later he was enjoying the cool contact with the Lehigh. Meanwhile Reese and Jacobs were perspiring freely. “Nothing the matter with your wing,” said Reese to Charlie, who was mixing feudal outdrops and allodial outcurves with astonish- ing speed. “This is a product of the base-ball renaissance, " said Charlie, sending in a peculiar drop to Reese, who, having forgotten the law of projected missiles, missed it cleanly. “There it goes, " said Bill, as the ball rolled a considerable distance beyond him. Try as they might they could not find it. After a ten minutes’ hunt they gave it up as lost. “Let’s go down to the river and wash up,” said Reese. They hastened to the river, when suddenly they stopped, for they had just seen some one dive into the river. Quickly lowering themselves, they crawled towards the river to see who the swimmer might be. " Ettinger. by all that’s holy,” said Jacobs. " Sure enough,” said Reese. " Let ' s hide his clothes, " said Jacobs. “Capital, " said Bill. Silently they crawled to where his clothes lay, gathered them together and placed them behind a large oak about two hundred yards away. " That reminds me of a story by Caesar of Haisterbach,” said Jacobs. " Yes, yes,” said Reese, " I know,” fearing lest he begin to tell it. Meanwhile Georgie, having swam across the Lehigh and back again, was crawl- ing out on the bank. “Guess I ' ve had enough for today. Horace gave us the Golden Medium, and I must live up to that.” But in vain did he search for his clothes. While searching, he found a honey comb. Being an experienced prison inspector, he examined its cells with interest, becoming so interested that he was nude, and " knewed " it not. By 5 o’clock Bauman returned to the camp and finding it deserted, and seeing the lateness of the hour, decided to usurp Haas ' s position and prepare the evening meal. " I’ll prepare the grub, the theorems, " said 184 John to himself, “think how that will offend Haas, who has always served it in syllogisms and as suggested by the association of ideas.” “This is the last time I’ll ever go fishing with a crowd like this, " said a voice in deep disgust. A moment later Haas slouched into the tent. Marks, Fritsch. Lear, Sollie, all came straggling after. “What is the matter, " said Wacky, who just returned from taking a walk. " Such a combination of fishermen you never saw, " was the reply. " Marks sang all afternoon and scared all the fish away. Next Fritsch and Och- senford began to wrangle about the relative value of the English and Greek dramatists, and as for Lear, every time he baited his book, he sat and examined the worm a whole hour. I think they should be conditioned in discreetness.” " Ach now, " said Wacky, taking out a pipe and slowly filling it, " we must be patient and good- natured in our judgment of these men.” Reese and Jacobs next came in. “Where have you spent the after- noon,” asked Wacky. " Oh, " said Reese, winking one of those long, lingering kind to Jacobs, " we played ball and took a walk. " Where ' s Ettinger, " said Fritsch, deftly rolling a cigarette. " Yes, yes, " said Wacky, “where is he? " Just then that individual appeared. “For twenty-seven years I have been connected with Muhlenberg College, and, natiirlich, I have grown to know young men pretty thoroughly. But I am not just prepared to say that any one ever played such a trick on me as one of you scamps did to-dav when he hid my clothes. " “Elucidate,” said Ochsie, “Well, I was swimming to-day and some one hid my clothes and I just found them ten minutes ago, " answered Georgie. " That is what I call a dirty mean trick.” said Jacobs, winking to Reese. Some one said " He! He! He! " when Haas hastily arose. " Gentlemen, the man who would do a thing like that is not worthy to associate with ' Christian gentlemen. A man whose standard of honor and integrity is not higher, would even be lenient with a student. We hope this slight warning will be sufficient and every further infringement will be met with the severest discipline. " " Supper is ready, " announced Bauman, and immediately all difficulties and ill-feelings were forgotten. " Well I can eat anyway, " said Georgie, throwing the " butt " of his cigarette, and sitting between Fritsch and Reese. " Don’t cry, 1 wouldn’t take it to heart, " said Fritsch, who sat on his left side. " That’s right, old chap, laugh it off, " said Reese, who sat on his right side. These two peculiarly different remarks caused all eves to be turned on Georgie, who was seen to be laughing on one side, and crying on the other side of his face, immediately they knew that he was only striking one of his famous platform expressions. “That reminds me of a storv of Caesar tie Haisterbach? " said Jacobs. " Yes, yes, " quickly said Wachy, fearing lest he tell it. " What do you think of him as a writer, " asked Jacobs of Solomon, who was strangely silent. " Well,” began Solomon, " I wouldn ' t want to make any statement as authentic. I wouldn’t care to be quoted to that effect, but I do not think Caysar of Haisterbach worthy to be classed with Milton, Shakespeare, Fred Fearnot, and 185 other classic writers. While his tales may be indigenous to the period they cover, they are spurious and unait- thentic. Now Ettinger was “nettled. " " Brethren, we should never disregard a thing because it is old. Caesar of Haisterbach was written in Latin and we should all read it. While we may read Milton and Fred Fearnot in our native tongue, still when we translate his stories we receive a certain mental training and culture.” It is now necessary to change the scene. It is ten o’clock. The Emausians awoke and quietly gather- ing their forces, drove out the fellows. Bauman in trying to save his velocipede, was captured. Upon learning that he had come hither on this antiquated mechanism, and not by trolley, they permitted him to leave. He immediately oiled up the velocipede and prepared to leave. " He! He! He! I ' ll hitch mv wagon to a star,” said John, riding out of the tent at break-neck speed. The natives now explored the two tents. Three kegs and two cases of empty “Schlitz " bottles were found in one tent, together with a pile of sheet music and a volume of Dr. James ' s Psychology. Empty cigarette boxes were found everywhere in profuse abundance. In the other tent lav a pair of shoes with rubber heels. On the table they found an immense number of cards, which, as nearly as could be deciphered, were covered with three words: " Papacy, Controversy and Feudalism. " Aside of that lay a history of Muhlenberg Athletics and a sound Siren. Under the table they found a translation of Horace and a manuscript on " Everyday Philosophy. " On a chair lay a long German pipe and a letter to Dr. Wackernagel from one of his childhood chums, the Emperor of Germany. On one of the blankets lay a treatise on the value of scanning, and a medicine case. Near the opening of the tent lay " A History of the Anglo-Sax- on Literature. " The reader undoubtedly wishes to know what became of the fellows. Wacky and Fritsch walked the distance into Allentown and arrived home safely at 6 a. m. Bauman was arrested for exceeding the speed limit, and was strangely missing until the latter part of August. Haas was picked up by a farmer coming into Allentown to market. He waxed so eloquent on the outrage perpetrated by the Emausians, and such high-sounding phrases escaped him that the farmer never opened his mouth, thinking him to be a Euro- pean and speaking that language. Georgie tried to awaken the inhabitants of a farm-house, but succeeded onlv in awakening the antagonism of the dog. When at eight a.nt. he limped into the Livingstone Club he was minus half his trousers, and a sadder but wiser man. Jacobs, Reese and Marks sat on a fence all night and waited for the first car. Lear and Solomon sought protection at a farm-house. Lear indeed came as a God- send, for the lady of the house suddenly became ill during the night. Ochsie said grace at the breakfast table in such elegant English that the kind farmers simply insisted on their staying a week.

WUNDER 192 The Map of the Holy Land or WHAT A KINDERGARTEN CHILD OUGHT TO KNOW. Once upon a time a certain learned Herr Doctor was conducting ' a class in religion. Rising, he gazed intently and significantly at a book before him, while ve trembling wretches, seated round about, grew cold with fear and suspense. At length he ceaseth from his meditations and looketh out upon ye crouching thronp - He spake, and in a calm voice he calleth upon 1 Huff of ye County of I lucks, that he might arise and thereupon shine forth in ye light of his theological knowledge. He asketh Bluff of ye County of Bucks a question which concerneth ye lesson of ye day, and Bluff of ye County of Bucks answereth him not at all. Then he asketh him another question and he answereth him not at all. Then he asketh him another question and he answereth not at all. Then arose ye mighty Herr Doctor and stepped to ye front of ye platform upon which he hath enthroned himself. With compressed lips and steadied voice he puteth to him still a fourth question. Bluff of ye County of Bucks, he gurgleth in ye throat, he stammereth with ye tongue, with exceeding great stammer- ing stammereth lie, he trembleth convulsively, but answereth him not at all. " Where is Phoenicia, Mr. Bluff? " quoth ye Herr Doctor. “Where is Phoenicia? " quoth he. And his voice is as ye voice of one speaking out of ye Book of ye Hudibras, as one out of ye Hudibras speaketh lie ; and his speech swelleth with exceeding great sarcasm, even as a cobra’s head that is about to sting. Then Bluff of ye County of Bucks he stammereth, but his courage risetli with ye sound of his voice. He speaketh. " Yea verily, " saitli he, " verily doth Phoenicia lie to the north of Palestine. " Then, Lo and Behold! As ye crashing thunder breaketh above ye city, as ye lightning stretcheth forth its serpent forks, as ye voice of ye Herr Doctor risetli as ye rolling of vast clouds; he stretcheth forth his hand, he shooteth out great sparks, as it were, from his optical organs, from his visual organs shooteth he them forth. Then were the vials of wrath; then were the hogsheads of consuming anger poured forth upon ye head of ve luckless Bluff of ve County of Bucks. He shaketh as a mighty tower which is about to fall; ye blood mount- eth high into his cheeks, unto his face there cometli a ruddy red, even as the blushing of a pretty maiden. He looketh ot. his companions; he sayetli in his heart. " Strike me that I may die. " 193 And ve voice of ye mighty Herr Doctor roareth forth: “Such things, Mr. Bluff, we were supposed to learn in the kindergarten. You want to look up vour map of the Holy Land. It’s a disgrace, a positive dis- grace. Why a child, Mr. Bluff, should know that Phoenicia is south of Palestine. You had better study your map of Palestine again, Mr. Bluff; you had better study your map of Palestine. " Thus his voice continueth in a mighty rage roaring throughout. Then Bluff of ye County of Bucks, he trembleth with great trembling; he shaketh as an aspen leaf; he looketh unto his brethren as though he were about to sink through ye door. And as ye everflowing stream of thought rageth through his bejumbled brain, even as a raging torrent after a spring ' s flood hath troubled the H2O. Lo, as a voice rising up from the dead there cometh forth from ye trembling throng a small, timid sound as ve voice of one who longeth to speak, but speaketh in great fear. At length Bueller of ye County of ye Red Rose: Bueller ye brother of Joe; Bueller ye little but ve Oh- mv, lifteth up his voice and addresseth ye Herr Doctor. And quoth Bueller of ye County of ve Red Rose. Bueller ye brother of Joe, Bueller ye little but ye Oh-my; quoth Bueller unto ye mighty Herr Doctor quoth he: " Lo, and Behold, Herr Doctor, Lo and Behold, Look again. I pray thee. Study ye map of ye Holy Land thy- self. Be ' hold, dost thou not find that Philistia doth really lie to ye south of Palestine? " Thus quoth Bueller. Ye mighty Herr Doctor stoppeth ; as an automobile which striketh a telegraph pole stoppeth he; as ve erstwhile occupants thereof so seemeth ye Herr Doctor, verily of a truth, he seemeth to be up in ye air. He closeth up ihis vocal orifice even as a clam closeth his shell; he looketh upon ye void as one in great perplexitv ; as a child of ye kindergarten looketh he upon ye void ; he looketh out as one who would recall. Then by and by he turneth and speaketh unto Bueller of ye County of ye Red Rose; unto Bluff of ye Coun- ty of Bucks speaketh he. " Yes, Mr. Bueller, yes. I believe you are correct. Phoenicia is on the north of Pale- stine. I got it mixed with Philistia. Yes, yes. you are correct. I beg your pardon, Mr. Bluff ; I was mixing Phoe- nicia with Philistia. I will give you credit for that much at least, Mr. Bluff. Yes, I’ll give you credit for that much. I beg your pardon. You see I was mixing Phoenicia with Philistia. That will do. " Thereupon Bluff of ye County of Bucks sitteth himself down, verily as one in great relief, though pierced with many wounds whereof cometh many scars, sitteth he down. And ye might v Herr Doctor doeth likewise and sitteth before ye class as an extinct Volcano before ye city at its feet. 194 Rouge Et Noir.

Other cases disposed of. To-day Judge Morning, of the Muhlenberg Precinct, opened the February term of court. The Jones desertion case was the headliner, but at the request of District Attorney Mueller it was postponed until the minor cases had been disposed of. The list was unusually long and the vast crowd grew impatient, taking but little interest in anything save the Jones case. The first case disposed of was that of Messrs. Beck, Laubach. McCormick, Me Creery and Rupp, who were sentenced to six months at hard labor for assault and battery, on oath of the stiffs. Chairman Marcks, of the Indignation Committee of Emaus, was fined five dollars for riding on a trollev- car. Electricity Ivuder was fined seven dollars for giving seven separate teachers seven distinct shocks for as many decent recitations. Speedy Kuhl was sent up for thirty days for exceeding t ' he speed limit. Anton Rubinstein (his ghost represented him) vs. Lunky Eichner for defamation of character in the de- fendant ' s agonizing recital of " Mow Ruby Played. " The defendant was fined twenty-five dollars, in default of which he was sent up for ninety days. Messrs. Hauser, Albert, Eberts and Slnipp were each sent up for a year for stealing bases on the Muh- lenberg Field. The case of Mike Zane for murder of Nita Wanita near Pfifer’s Road on the night of January 30, was set aside for the April term of court. The Societv for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals vs. Messrs. Shelly, Rudh, Schoenberger, and Blitz for fast driving. The defendants were each sentenced to pay a fine of twenty-three dollars and costs. Messrs. Beidler and Zuch were sent up for ninety days for drunkenness and disorderly conduct. At length the Jones Desertion Case was called up. The selecting of the jury was a long and tiresome proceeding, for the case had become so notorious that the majority of talesmen had formed very decided opin- ions. 201 The first man called was Janies Anthony, a horse dealer of Aquashicola. The District Attorney objected to him on the ground that Jones was an old crony of Anthony ' s and belonged to the same Hassenpfeffer Club. With a peculiar malevolence Judge Morning overruled the objection. The second man called was H. D. Whitteker. He was objected to because of his ingrained prejudice against the man who was bold enough to venture upon the tempestuous sea of matrimony, but the objection was overruled and he was chased into the box. Paul Huyett and Paul Ruder were accepted to give a smack of respectability to the jury, which, on the whole, was a rather disreputable looking crowd. Paul Reed, when questioned as to conscientious scruples regarding hanging, said he had none. District Attorney Mueller who resides near the aforesaid Reed ventured the information that Mr. Reed had no conscience, which Reed did not deny. Strange to say he was immediately rejected. H. Levi Y. Sevier, the notorious partner of the equally notorious Mike Rudh and Fred Wunder, were ac- cepted, though the defense objected to the last two because they were no Americans, but natives of New York. Roger Rentschler. the next man called, said that he had never served on a jury and would like to do some- thing for his country. He was rejected. Dallas Green objected to serving because of incompetence to render an intelligent decision on any mat- ter where love was involved on account of youth and inexperience. Judge Morning, however, sent him into the box, declaring that the less a juror knew jabout the case when the time came for rendering his decision, the better. Edgar Nonamaker was rejected because he avowed his honest opinion that the defendant ought to be tarred and feathered and then lynched. He seemed such a straightforward individual the Court was convinced that he would be out of place in a jury box. William Kistler Huff was objected to bv the defense because he was the rejected suitor of the lady in the case and would naturally be prejudiced against the successful wooer. The Court ruled that after a conver- sation with the defendant it was convinced that all the desirable young men of the country were included in that list and such a trifle could not weigh against the said Huff. John M. Aberly was accepted in spite of the fact that he admitted that as a son of the South he was con- vinced that every man ought to be lynched who was accused of deserting his betrothed. 202 Ralph Funk was accepted together with Messrs. Weber, Refuse Kern and Shupp, who, to the utter astonishment of the Court, seemed to have formed no opinion one way or the other on the merits of the case. After the jury had been selected, Court adjourned for fresh air. When Court reconvened the taking of testimony began. The first witness for the prosecution was Isaac Solomon Bechtold of the firm of “Reisner and Bechtold, manufacturers of jewels and precious stones. " In the cross-examination, the Assistant District Attorney Useless Grant asked: " What do vou know of the defendant ' s matrimonial affairs ? " Witness : “Only vat 1 hears. " Attorney: " And what have you heard? " Here the attorney for the defense objected that hearsay could not be accepted as evidence in a court of just ice, whereupon the witness called out excitedly: “I knows vat I hears. Jones tolt me hisself. He tells efervboty. " He was allowed to continue. It appears that Jones had gone into store of Reissner and Bechtold and intro- ducing himself, he offered to let them into a great secret, if they promised never to reveal it. " Den,” to con- tinue Mr. Bechtold ' s own discourse, " my partner Lefi, he says: ‘Veil, if it don’d cost noddings, go ahead:’ and he tolt us lie vas going to get married. Veil, of course ve vere bot shocked. ' So you iss in lofe,’ says my part- ner, Lefi ; und " — but here the court interfered ordering Mr. Bechtold to give the statistics and leave out the unimportant details. " Dese iss de stassistics, " retorted the witness. " I ' m chust coming to de point. He was ordered to continue. " Veil, den I knew dat my partner, Lefi, vas going to crack von of hiss bum chokes, und I reaches for a fan and a glass of vater. ‘Do you know vat lofe iss,’ says my partner, Lefi. ‘Veil, lofe iss Var. and iff you vant to know vat var iss, ask Cheneral Sherman. ' Jones, he laughed und says he vants to buy a dia- mont ring. My partner, Lefi, shows him quite a number and finally Jones picks oud von und says, ‘How much?’ ‘Tirtv-six tollars and feeft ' cents; four tollars und feefty cents down und tree tollars a veek. ' ‘Iss it flawless?’ says Jones. ‘Flawless! ' says Lefi. ‘Vy, sure, it ' s flawless. I made it myself.’ He took de ring but he owes me and Lefi, vat iss mv partner, yet tirty-two tollars. " Here Mr. Bechtold broke down and was forced to leave the witness box. The next witness was Postmaster Mike Rudh, who testified that the defendant had received two letters a dav for several years from the same lady, but lately had been receiving a good many from another young lady in the city. That at times the defendant had read portions of the letters to him, but unless the court demanded he would not repeat them. On the back of every envelope were five letters of a somewhat mystic nature which the Postmaster believed was an Anarchistic symbol. When asked to tell what they were he replied: Y. T. T. B. B. His mind, however, was set at rest by His Dishonor, the Judge, who volunteered the information that 203 this meant merely a token of affection and was usually translated, “Yours till the bench breaks.” At this point Tipstaves Coleman and Stump were obliged to get busy. As a result of their efforts, Messrs. Marsh, Kuhl, Gelsinger. Werley, Werner, and Bauman were forcibly ejected from the court-room for raising a disturbance. The last witness for the prosecution was Benjamin Levi Grossman, who conducts a second-hand cloth- ing establishment all the time and a fire sale every three months. He claimed that Jones had bought a suit from him at his last fire sale. Jones swearing him to secrecy, had told him about the coming wedding. The witnesses for the defense were the next on the stand. The first man called was N. B. Y. Yerger who denied, but afterward admitted under cross-examination, that he had brushed long hair and rouge from the de- fendant’s coat after lie had returned late from town. A hair was produced and when asked if those taken from the defendant ' s coat were the color of that one the witness said that he would not care to take an oath to it. but they certainly did have a great resemblance. Drs. Beck, Laubach, Rupp and McCormick each separately testified that one of the hairs was one of those removed bv Mr. Ye rger and the other had been taken front the head of the defendant himself and that both hairs were identically alike. Mr. Edgar O. Reitz, a neighbor of the defendant testified that Jones took especial pride in his curly locks and frequently, when he did not have the price to get them cut, would let them grow to great lengths. Mr. Reitz declared that Jones took almost as much pride in the beauty of his hair as a certain Mr. Shelly, which state- ment seemed to satisfy the jurors at once. Mr. Edward Hardy declared, under oath, that the defendant was a well-intentioned individual, did not lie about anybody but himself and was not altogether responsible for all his actions. Next the defendant took the stand. He gave his age as twenty-two, color white and general appearance dignified and handsome. He impressed the Court and jurors at once with his importance. As proof that his affections had not changed, he read some of the latest correspondence. The effect on his hearers was varied. Some roared, some hissed, but the majority left the room. A horse tied to a post within hearing was affected with blind staggers and a dog lying on the side-walk nearby went mad. Both had to be shot. He denied having bought the ring from the firm of Reisner and Bechtold, but declared that he had gotten it for Turkish Trophy Coupons. As for the hairs found on his coat that was mere quibbling and had been satisfactorily disposed of by expert testimony. The battle of the legal lights now began. Assistant District Attorney Useless Grant for the prosecution 204 and Webster Mirabeau Beidler for the defense. Lawyer Beidler made an eloquent plea and succeeded so far in working on the feelings of the jurors that they turned a deaf ear to the Assistant District Attorney ' s vitriolic attacks. At this point it was discovered that the jury was being tampered with by Mr. Levi Reisner. The cul- prit, detected, was seized and ejected from the room before any further damage could be done. The jury then retired. At first there were evidences of great confusion in the jury room, judging from the variety of sounds that floated through the door. But by degrees order got the upper hand until a perfect silence reigned. This was suddenly broken by the ringing of a coin striking the floor and after a little more confusion the jury filed out. When asked for their decision, the foreman declared that they had found the pris- oner not guilty. A general cheer went up from the audience at this announcement and Tipstaves Coleman and Stump were kept busy quieting down the demonstrative crowd. When the Judge asked how they had managed to reach such a decision, the foreman of the jury acknowl- edged that they had tossed up a coin. Thereupon his Dishonor dismissed the jury, complimenting them upon their approved modern method of reaching a decision in a court of justice. Then the court adjourned. 205 Ye Ballad of Hades There once was a chemist of wild-world renown. His name was H. Seyler from gay Reading town. Materia Medica, stern mathematics Seemed to this young chemist but childish athletics. He worked in the lab. from morning till night, So dear was this chemistry in Seyler’s sight. The next famous person concerned in this ditty Is F. Hobson Smith from petite Pottslown city. He visited college one Thanksgiving-day, To see Muhlenberg put the pig-skin in play. Of course, this was long after Smith ' s graduation — He was now a rich banker high up in his station. He entered the lab. and found Seyler there Mixing up acids and learning to swear. Just then something happened and caused, to our knowledge, The greatest disaster e’er heard of at college. The noise was reported for miles, miles around — Doc Rudh even heard it at Long Island Sound. The explosion, they say, shook all Allentown ; It blew up the building, the chemists blew down. Their shadowy souls rushed pell mell from the wreck And the next thing they knew they were crammed on the deck Of a quaint ancient craft aged a thousand or more. And built by the Romans or Greeks, I am sure. A gray-bearded stranger stepped up to the crowd, Tapped Smith on the shoulder and shouted aloud : “ This ‘ wessel ' won’t start before seven o’clock ; Will you please take your friends and get out on the dock.” So saying, he gazed with a Sphinx-mannered leer. As his cold nasal tones broke harsh on their ear. The boat they perceived was anchored near shore To a long ghost-like pier, some ten feet plus a score. They turn to depart, when the gray stranger saith : " Why, shiver my limbers, here’s F. Hobson Smith !’’ Then Seyler exclaimed, in surprise : “ On my word ; Gad zooks; if it isn ' t our friend Ochsenford !” They crowded about him in great jubilee ; They all shook his hands and they shouted with glee : “I say Dr. Ochsenford, what do you hear? You ' re stern and grave aspect dclh make it appear That you hold some great office : now pray tell us what Are you captain, lieutenant, or mate of this yacht ? " “ I’m neither the captain nor bo’sn, “ quoth he; " The pilot am I of this mortis feme ; Stern Wacky’s the captain — no doubt he’s below ; Red Albert’s the mate and lieutenant also.” Then suddenly up thru the hatchway there popped The oriflamme caput of Albert, and stopped. 206 “ Now bailer my bulwarks! " and “Great Scott!” cried he, “ Here is a sight to make old blind men see.” They greeted each other and joyfully said : " HoSeyler; HiSmitty!” " Well, Johnny, the Red !” “ How are you lieutenant ? " laughed Seyler aloud. John squared up his shoulders and looked rather proud. They talked and they talked till dusk gan to fall, ' Bout college and classes and playing foot-ball. At length up spake Hobson : “ Say, Reddy, old beau ; Could you tell us just where we are ? I ' d like to know : I’ve gotten my bearings in rather a mix.” “ Well Smitty, " quoth Reddy, “ this stream is the Styx.” “ And yonder you see — those far distant sands — The Empire of Hades — the shadowy lands.’’ As Albert ceased speaking the ship ' s bell was heard, And the other shade passengers all flocked aboard. The anchor was lifted ; the oars put in play ; And hoisting the sail, they were soon under way. As the shadowy ship ploughed the shadowy stream ; It seemed to the shades but a shadowy dream. At length Purser Bernheim appeared with some buckets, And shouted : “ All passengers cough up their ducats.” Thereupon, with much clinking, the gold coin did rain; But Smith and the chemist all coughed up in vain. For nothing from nothing leaves nothing, you know ; And Smiih and the chemist soon found that ' twas so. But Johnnie, the Red, to their rescue then came, And brave captain Wacky, of nautical fame. So Bernheim passed on, but remarked to the Red ; “I’m a son of a gun ; this is fierce, " Oscar said. “ Every Muhlenberg student, a dead-head goes over. Does he think that old Charon is rolling in clover ? ’ At length to the shadowy shores they drew near ; And now the old vessel was lied to the pier ; And forthwith the passengers all disembarked, Save the chemists, to whom John, the Red, had remarked “ Just wait for me, lads, till l m thru with this tub And I’ll take you right up to the Muhlenberg Club.’’ They soon wended their way right eager to know What Muhlenberg students had gathered below. At the club they were met with such a reception, Altogether engulfing their wildest conception Here were Coleman and Weaver and Rudolph and Shupp, Bossard and Schoenie and Doc Roger Rupp ; Anthony, Stump, Paules, and Wolper at cards; Frilsch, Schatz, Jacks, Eichner discussing the bards ; Billy Bryan was talking with Beidler and Huff ; Haas and Kant were engaged with some logical stuff. Alexander the Great, with a two-fer cigar, Discussing with Marsh his new auto-car; Napoleon, Hannibal, Tannie the Jap, Having a nice warlike contest in crap; Henrtch Hudson and Wohlsen were bowhng a game; Dampman and Hauser were doing the same. Jonathan Zane was playing his flute. Torturing the crowd with his fierce toot-a-toot ; Bennie the Jew, Cleopatra the witch, Discussing theology with Robert Fritsch ; Jacobs was sleeping they heard to their mirth, A habit they knew he ' d acquired on earth. Georgie and Horace tried to see which was able To drink the other one under the table ; “ Hie — Hie — ‘ Urrraahh — F rthe Livingshone — Hie Yelled Georgie, who now was as lull as a lick ; Horace howled ; “ Io 7 numphe, ip — ipse, " And rolled neath the table most gloriously tipsy. And thi; is just where the troubles begin, Ending only when Satan himself sauntered in. Horace upset the table on Lear, Who boxed Mephistopheles over the ear, Who, in turn, threw a bottle which stopped on Pop Reese, Who swore he ' d knock Horn through the middle of Greece, Who then aimed a blow at this great physiciest. But was suddenly floored by Pan Marks ' mighty fist ; Horn ' s buffet missed Reese but descended on Haas, Who, in turn didn’t stop to reason the cause ; But vented his wrath on Immanuel Kant With a vigor and courage which nothing could daunt; Immanuel looked up in mild surprise And soaked Fritsch two stiff ones on both of his eyes : Cleopatra screamed, “ Murder " ! shrieked, “ Marcus the Roman’ I Who came to the rescue and set upon Bauman; But Bauman, in turn, with a nice coup-de-maine. Flung Antony back on to Hamlet the Dane ; The Dane, melancholic, choleric uprose, Smote Bennie the Jew with his fist, on the nose ; Then Ben flew at Hudson the great Dutch explorer. Who, in turn, flew at Pete, to Wohlsen ' s great horror: Then Coleman, Smith, Seyler and Albert jumped in, While Cyrus and Grant raised a terrible din ; At length ’mid this rumpus and riot and roar. His Majesty, Satan, stalked in thru the door : “ Well gentlemen " — smiling, this Hades Prince said : In silence, the rioting shades quickly fled ; Quoth Seyler to Smith as the shades gan to flee, “ Reminds me of old times, this joyous melee : ” And so ’mid a roar and general hubbub, Thus ended the spree at the Muhlenberg Club.

GOOD DRUGGIST Hamilton and Sixth Sts., Allentown, Pa. Relating to Eyestrain When the condition of the eye compels the tiny eye muscles to constantly exert their ut- most strength to perform functions which the normal eye would do unconsciously, the mus- cles become overworked and tired in the same manner as other muscles of the body would under similar strain. Eyestrain manifests itself in so many differ- ent ways that one should have the eyes prop- erly examined at the first indication of abnor- mal conditions. Your attention is directed to the careful and systematic examination which those who come to us are given ; the exact methods of measuring and fitting of eyeglasses and spectacles. We invite you to call and confer with us in regard to the proper consideration of this most important subject — the care and correction of the eyes for perfect vision ALBERT W.
