HON. CHARLES ADOLF SCHIEREN Befcuation We, the Class of 1913, Re- spectfully Dedicate This CIARLA, THE RESULT OF OUR REST EFFORT, TO on. Cl)arlE0 2lDolpl) cpieren Ex-Mayor of Brooklyn, N. Y . Endeavoring, hereby, to show in our feeble way our appreciation of the generosity, de- devotion and great interest which he has manifested in Muhlenberg College, and our recognition of the splendid example of manliness which he has given us by his excellent type of American citizenship. Charles Adolf Schieren C HARLES ADOLF SCHIEREN was born in Rhenish Prussia, Germany, February, 1842; he was educated in the public schools in Germany until 1856, when at the age of fourteen he came to the United States. He learned the cigar trade and as- sisted his father in the business in Brooklyn until 1 864, when he began, as a clerk, in the leather belting business of Philip F. Pasquay in New York City. In 1868 he established himself in the leather belting business with a small capital of his own savings, and from that enterprise has grown the present firm of Chas. A. Schieren Company in New York with many branch houses in this country and Hamburg, Germany, and tanneries in Brooklyn, N. Y., and Bris- tol, Tenn. It is in the City of Brooklyn that Mr. Schieren’s social and political interests are closely identified. In politics, he has always been a prominent R epublican. He introduced the elec- tion district plan, which caused the overthrow of the Democratic party and in 1893 the elec- tion of Mr. Schieren to the Mayorality by a tremendous majority. He turned his big business over to other hands and devoted his entire time to the duties of his high office. His administra- tion was characterized by a wise and conservative management of the city’s affairs, which gave hirn a national reputation. Throughout his busy life, Mr. Schieren has been a devoted Church-man. Confirmed in the Lutheran Church, he has been a most faithful and consecrated worker. Deeply interested in the future of the Lutheran Church in America, he has been largely responsible for the growth of Lutheranism in Brooklyn. As a Trustee and true and generous friend of our college, he has given a large fund to Muhlenberg College for the education of young men for the English Lutheran ministry. He has also endowed a Professorship at the Mt. Airy Theological Sem- inary, and given liberally to Home Missions, Education and the various other causes of the Church. Mr. Schieren has been successful in all his undertakings, is public spirited, clean charac- tered, and ever ready to support by his means and influence any enterprise which has for its pur- pose the betterment and welfare of the community, of which he has been an honored member for over half a century and is a splendid specimen of American citizenship. Page Four To All Loyal Sons of Muhlenberg, Greeting: have enjoyed the honor and privilege of publishing the Twenty-first Volume of the ClARLA. Our task, although a pleasant one, also bore with it many trials and diffi- culties, and clouds of discouragement often hovered over us. If, however, we have turned the thoughts of some gray- haired Alumni to happy days spent at Muhlenberg, and if, in years to come, this book shall serve to bring back some pleasant memory of the past year, and help to keep alive in your breast a true love and loyalty to our Alma Mater — its purpose is accomplished, and the effort that has been so willingly contributed to its success will be more than rec- ompensed. We present this, The 1913 ClARLA, to Alumni, students, and friends, hoping that you will forgive all errors, and de- rive real pleasure from reading it. Page Five fHEST7 FT QWSM ' IJ The Collegiate Year Rev. John A. W. Haas, D.D. E very year of collegiate life may appear to be the same, but in fact it has its own char- acter and its own distinctive features. Were every year alike, there would be no pro- gress, for progress implies change and change for the better. It is a story of steady progress which we can relate, not progress without arrest, or progress without difficulty, but still progress. In the teaching of the college there has been a greater uniform excellence and quality of efficiency than ever before. More earnestness of purpose and application have been evident. Courses previously offered were enriched with new material and given with better methods. Among new work undertaken, two courses deserve special mention. One is the full year’s course in sociology in its theoretical foundation and practical application, which attracted the largest class in elective studies because of its present interest and value. The other new course is a general course in the elements of biology for the student who cannot take the detail work of biological study and laboratory practice. The attention given to writing of themes in the lower classes has been more careful, and more constant writing has been introduced. A lecture by Henry VanDyke, of Princeton, and a course in aesthetics by Prof. Shaw, of New York Uni- versity, were of the highest type. The Saturday courses for public school teachers were better patronized than ever before. In the response which the student body gave to the teaching, life and fellowship of the col- lege, there were evidences of appreciation despite the usual critical attitude of the college man. “The Muhlenberg” showed the influence and in this whole year advanced very decidedly in excellence of material. The usual literary contests took place and pleasant social receptions were features of the life of the literary societies. The Classical Club continued its rambles in classic fields, while the Philosophical Club discussed modern historical and political questions. The work of the individual students who prepared papers and reports for class-room or entered upon prize essays was commendable. The general student atmosphere was wholesome and student government continued. The Student Council entered diligently upon some difficult problems of student life. The Glee Club had a most well-balanced group of voices, and the Dramatic Association added to its former good reputation. Page Eight Most marked was the new era in athletics. With the constant services of our new Physi- cal Director, Mr. Kelly, not only were the best results attained in football and other athletic sports, but the required gynasium work produced excellent effects. The strenuous Swedish move- ments and the German gymnastic exercises developed the Freshmen very well. With this ad- vance came a stronger and more consistent discipline which has toned up the student body. In the religious work among the students the M. C. A. had its first year of activity. It carried forward the banner of religious ideals, and through its personal work and its weekly Bible classes, devotional meetings and monthly public addresses it rendered real service. But this brief record of the year, which mentions only outstanding features and does not emphasize the quiet, steady advance is merely the prelude to greater things to be expected. It is not wise to dwell on attainments very long; but to plan for prospects is true wisdom. What has been accomplished only furnishes the foundation for what should be done. In looking into the future some expectations may be disappointed and some hopes deferred, nevertheless let us hope for more rather than for less achievement. It seems assured that next year shall see the new refectory open and ready for use. It is planned to begin modestly and erect a building in character like the chemical laboratory but architecturally improved. Its seating capacity in the dining room is to be 150, and the culinary arrangements are to be of the best modern type. Through the refectory a new impetus will be given to the unity of student life by providing a common center of daily association. Another improvement contemplated is a concrete fence around the football field, and the friends of the Athletic Association aroused by the enthusiasm of this year’s success, are aiding in this work. It is very creditable to the Athletic Association, that it is willing to assume not only this work, but also the burden of carrying the financial obligations of the new refectory. While these improve- ments are imminent, the authorities are also working for the new building of the Preparatory School. They are planning for a financial campaign which shall meet not only this demand, but also liquidate the existing college debt and add to the endowment fund. In the curriculum of the college a fuller course in philosophy will be developed through the addition of aesthetics. The old course in theism will be reconstructed to meet and include the problems of the psychology of religion and of comparative religion. More Latin will be re- quired for admission, and the German entrance requirements advanced. This will offer larger Page Nine opportunity for advanced work in the college. The English department plans intensive advance- ment, and the library will be more extensively employed and put into better serviceableness. In C hemistry and Physics and in Biology new courses are projected. There will be a forward movement all along the line. For some years the work of the literary societies has not progressed, but it is planned next year, under the supervision of the English department, to give it new impetus and make it of high service to all students. Plans to this end are now being shaped. There is equal prospect that the religious work among the students shall be still better ad- vanced and more effectively organized than in the entire period of experiment of the past few years. 1 here are two directions in which the student-body shall be called upon to consider ad- vance. One is such a modification of the new student rules in student government and such a change in the activity of the Student Council as to effect a greater sense of independence in moral issues, and a greater fearlessness in combatting evils of student life. Not self-determined action but wise co-operation with the Faculty which is the governing body must work this de- velopment. The Student Council must be the strong exponent of high moral ideals. The other direction in which advance must come, whatever may be the method, is a larger and more con- stant application of the sense of honor in the students’ individual work and in his stand for the college. Due to mistaken notions of temporary success, which is one of the evils of Americans to-day, the average student body in our colleges is not willing and ready to apply the highest sense of honesty and honor to its work and life. Muhlenberg students must learn to strive for better things than the average. They must attempt to exhibit such a spirit and atmosphere in the college, that low ideals cannot exist in it. This can only be done if a large number of men are willing to catch the vision and to co-operate in earnest with the ideals of the Faculty and Board. There is a work which only the student body can do, and such work is the striving for high ideals. The force of such ideals is gained, finally, not through the earthly but through heavenly vision. Let us strive for the best and highest things, the noblest aims, the purest and most honest life, the helpfulness of high courage, the bracing strength of virtue, sympathy, and the constant services of true religion. Page T en THE DORMS HENRY MELCHIOR MUHLENBERG Historical Celebration of the Two Hundredth Anniversary of the Birth of Henry Melchoir Muhlenberg A NAME dear to Lutherans is that of Muhlenberg. That a College named after the man who was so large a factor in the founding of the Lutheran Church of America, should feel it a duty and a privilege to honor the name when- ever the occasion occurs, is surely most fitting. The supreme opportunity for such recognition of high merit in the event of the approach of the two hun- dredth anniversary of the birth of Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, the famous Lutheran patriarch, was early seen and preparations were made for proper observances of the anniversary. The celebration on October 12, 1911, was an unqualified success most noted in every way, whether one considers the man whose memory was commemorated or the eminent personages who took prominent parts in the com- memoration. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg came to Philadelphia Nov. 25, 1 742, possessed with the best education that Germany could offer him, instilled with a profound knowledge of the Bible, and enthused with an unbounded enthusiasm. He was called to America by the “United Congregations of Pennsylvania,” to help reorganize and build a stronger Church, and use his influence in whatever way he could. A short time afterwards he changed his resi- dence to Trappe, where he was occupied for the rest of his life. His influence and work, however, covered a much wider range of territory. He gave to the Lutheran Church a model of constitution, parts of which she even uses to this day. He was the author of a work on Theology, entitled “Defence of Pietism”, published in 1741, and of the liturgy of 1748, together with a preface for the hymn book of 1 786. He gave many young men who wished to enter the ministry personal training, and formed plans and purchased land for a seminary as early as 1 749. This great man’s life was cut short Oct. 7, 1 787. Although he is dead, his works still live on, and is held in great esteem in the Church to-day. The exercises connected with the celebration of the anniversary of the birth of Muhlenberg were divided into two parts — the morning and afternoon exercises. Page Thirteen The morning exercises were held in St. John’s Lutheran Church on South Fifth street, Allentown, at 10 o’clock. A 1 arge procession consisting of the speakers of the morning, the Faculty of Muhlenberg College, the representa- tives of the Universities and Colleges, the Alumni of the College, the visiting clergy, and the students of Muhlen- berg College and of the Allentown Preparatory School marched into the Church and took their seats on the rostrum and in the front of the Church, which was well filled with friends who had assembled to celebrate the birth of the illustrious patriarch. The hymn, “Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,’’ was then sung. Dr. Haas, who presided over the morning exercises, introduced Rev. H. Branson Richards, a grandson thrice removed from Muhlenberg, who offered a fervent prayer. Prof. H. E. Jacobs, D.D., LL.D., D.S.T., then spoke in a pleasing man- ner upon “Muhlenberg’s Ideals”. He discussed at length some of the influences which tended to mold Muhlenberg’s character, before he came to America, and brought out the import- ance of the wonderful work he wrought here in practically establishing the Lutheran Church of America and instilling into the Pennsylvania Germans the desire for religious knowledge. Then followed the brief, but most cordial greetings from the Mimsterium of Pennsylvania by its President, Prof. E. T. Horn, D.D., LL.D., of the Faculty of the Mt. Airy Theological Seminary. Following these greetings a solo, much enjoyed by the audience, and entitled “Praise the Lord,” was rendered by Mrs. E. S. Sieger. Dr. Wm. F. Muhlenberg, of Reading, next brought the greetings from the Muhlenberg family. Doctor Muhlen- berg is the oldest living descendant of Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, the first President of Muhlenberg College, and he is also a member of the graduating class of 1 868. In giving the greetings of the family he assured us that he took what he considered justifiable pride in the honor of being a direct descendent of this great man. He de- preciated an attempt to shine by the lustre of his illustrious ancestors, but emphasized the value of a great ancestry as a model for imitation in the practice of virtues, exemplified in the character of such a man as the assemblage had met to honor. Then followed the greetings from the Pennsylva- nia German Society by Dr. H. M. M. Richards, who is a grandson twice removed of the patriarch. Dr. Richards paid a glowing tribute to the Pennsylvania Germans, who, besides being staunch defenders of the faith of Christ, were Page Fourteen also among the first to defend the rights of the Colonies in the Revolutionary War and their own rights in the Civil War. Hymn 629, “Lead Us, Heavenly Father, Lead Us,” was sung by the audience, after which Dr. E. T. Horn pronounced the benediction. During the noon hour, guests and friends were cared for by the College at the Hotel Allen. The afternoon exercises beginning at two o’clock were held on the college campus, where a large tent with a platform at one end had been erected. There were about fifteen hundred people under the canvass, forming an audience of a rare nature. The students, directed by our song leader, Mr. Katz, and cheer leader, Mr. Frederick, and accompanied by the Allentown Band (which Dr. Ettinger claimed tried to outshine him), furnished music throughout the program and greatly added to the interest of the occasion. The afternoon exercises were opened by prayer by Rev. H. Douglas Spaeth of Selins- grove. The first speaker of the afternoon was our honored President, Dr. J. A. W. Haas, D.D. He spoke at some length on the importance of the smaller colleges of to-day, and claimed that they, as well as the larger institutions had an important part to play in the edu- cational world. He said that the smaller colleges are by no means deteriorating or diminishing, but that, on the contrary, having an importance which is being felt more and more, they are being looked upon as the best molders of character in Christian men. Among other things, he outlined the aims which he sets for the Muhlenberg man. His earnest eloquence moved the hearts of many, and his clear statements opened the eyes of not a few. As always his re- marks were enjoyed by all. After the students showed their Muhlenberg spirit in a spirited song Dr. Ettinger in his well known humorous style introduced the representatives of the various universities and colleges. Prof. Warren P. Laird, who brought us the greetings from the University of Pennsylvania assured us of the hearty co-operation of his colleagues with us in the celebration of so great a man. The Dean of Dickinson College, James H. Morgan, brought us the compliments of his college; this was followed by the greetings from Franklin and Marshall by Prof. H. M. J. Klein, who is “half Muhlenberg and half F. M.” He gave us the most cordial tribute from a college whose relations are somewhat closer than any of the others, because Henry Melchior Muhlenberg was one of the founders of Franklin Col- lege. Prof. Klein read to us extracts from Muhlenberg’s diary, which was very interesting. President W. G. Granville of Pennsylvania College brought us our heartfelt greetings from “Our Mother,” as he termed Gettysburg. The following tributes or remembrances of the Page Fifteen greatness of the occasion were given and gratefully received: Lafayette, by President Dr. Warfield; Haverford, by President Sharpless; State College, by Mr. Buchman ; Susquehanna, by President Ackins and Dr. Manhart; Ursinus, by Dr. George Omwake and Professor W. Kline; Lehigh, by Vice President, N. M. Emery and Professor W. C. Thayer, who very kindly assured us of their co-operation in the celebration; and Temple University, by Dr. Hydl Delk. These greetings were greatly enjoyed by all and the more so, because it evi- denced that the importance of the celebration was not only recognized by Muhlenberg, but also by the colleges of other denominations and of the state. Professor J. C. Schwab, Librarian of Yale University, then gave a lengthy discussion on “Muhlenberg’s Antecedents.” This, indeed, was a work of literature, and if space allowed we would be delighted to publish the entire speech, because it contained many points which showed that Muhlenberg was beyond dispute a man of high intellectual and moral standing and his antecedents were of such a character as to make possible so great as the one whom the assemblage was paying tribute. Hon. Samuel W. Pennypacker, ex-governor of Pennsylvania, then gave a splendid talk on “Muhlenberg at Home.” The former Governor, who lives near Trappe, where Muhlenberg lived and labored, and was buried, claimed that more influential men have come from Muhlenberg’s birthplace than from any other place of its size. He made his talk very interesting with practical examples, and showed the audience a book containing the only true picture of Muhlenberg. Following the conclusion of the Ex-Governor’s remarks the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws was conferred on the following eminent gentlemen: Former Governor Pennypacker of Swenksville, Pa. ; Dr. William F. Muhlenberg of Reading, Pa.; Professor J. Christopher Schwab of Yale University, New Haven, Conn. Quite a number of the lineal descendants of Muhlenberg were present at these cere- monies. Among them were Dr. H. M. M. Richards and family of Lebanon, Pa.; Rev. H. Branson Richards; Dr. William F. Muhlenberg and family of Reading, Pa.; Miss Kath- arine and Mr. Fred Muhlenberg and wife; George and Fred Gregg of Reading; Miss Anne T. Mombert of Paterson, N. J. ; Miss Mary E. Muhlenberg of Columbia, Pa.; Mrs. E. Z. Schmucker, and Professor Schwab and family of New Haven, Conn. The conferring of degrees concluded the celebration, notable because of the high char- acter of the man commemorated, because of the enthusiasm of the commemorators, and because of the grand success of the commemoration.

In a little while, another commencement — the forty-fifth — will be at hand, and another class will be ushered into active life. The realization of the close proximity of commencement serves to throw the mind into retrospection. Ah! retrospection! A glance back through four years shows many interesting things. In the autumn of 1908, the Class of 1912 entered Muhlenberg College. The influence of this class has been described thoroughly in former histories, so detail will be unnecessary here. Let it suffice to say that athletics, studies, publications, and other student interests, — in all did 1912 men manifest interest. The Class of 1912 has been a unique class. Almost continually at “loggerheads” with the faculty during the first years at college, due to its over zeal in college activities, it has lived to see itself understood by the faculty and reinstated in their affections. In the “course of the college course,” too, the class has gathered a wonderful momentum which the writer is sure will count greatly towards “making good” in after life. In truth does the class contain some members of remarkable talents, who are sure to make names, not only for themselves but also for the college. However, the historian would have the deeds of the mem- bers of the class speak for themselves in the future. With this end in mind the detail will be avoided. As time goes on the Class of 1912 will ever remember the short, — alas! too short four years spent in these halls. The class hopes, at some time in the future, to give the college a material return for what the college has done for it. In ending, the historian, in behalf of “1912” wishes the best sort of a farewell to dear old Muhlenberg and all its teachers who have done so much in making her members what they may hope to become in the future.

Raise up a song of praise Of friendship near, of memories dear Of good old college days, And to our class of nineteen-twelve Be loyal e’er and true And let the years of fleeting time Oft friendship oft renew. And when we pass from out these walls To battle then with life Let memories cluster round the walls That trained us for the strife, J hen drink a toast of loyalty. Drink deep — and sometimes think Of friendship near, of memories dear Of good old college days. Should auld acquaintance be forgot And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot And days of auld lang syne. Lor auld lang syne, my dear. Lor auld lang syne. We’ll take a cup of kindness yet Lor auld lang syne.

Page Thirty-four History of the Class of 1913 AS FRESHMEN O N September 9, 1909, thirty-nine bright and earnest young men, the Class of 1913, entered the porticos of fair Muhlenberg. The spirit of the sons of Mars held their sway among us for the first few days of our existence at the college of our choice, but their reign was soon dispatched by the spirit of Mars himself. Our first glances rested upon the Soph posters, which had been put up for our instruction, even before we were on the scene. These were soon covered, however, with the “yellow posters” bearing the most stinging phrases and bitter defiances. Of course, we had to undergo the usual freshman initiations, but of this we will not speak. I he next event of importance was the bowl-fight. In this gladiatorial combat “1913” spirit had its birth. Although we were defeated, the Sophs themselves admitted that it was a stub- born and well fought battle. “Safe in the arms of the Freshmen” is the title of a picture in this volume which explains the most exciting event of our Freshman year. One Soph missing at an Epicurean feast in New York City, and an excellent undisturbed banquet at “Bob Hunt’s.” “Nuff sed.” In athletics our class shined brightly in our Freshman year. We won the cup in the inter-class track meet, finished in second place in the inter-class basketball series, and in addi- tion had seven “M” men on the varsity football team. During the course of the year we feel that we took a very creditable part in all the col- lege activities. Besides being represented exceptionally well on the College Glee Club, and fol- lowing the annual custom of presenting a turkey to Dr. Wackernagle in a manner that be- wildered the Sophs, our class also established anew precedent for all succeeding classes; we presented a case of maps to the college for use in the Religion room. As the year drew to a close, we began to lay plans for action in the year to follow the few months vacation. Thus, dear reader, you will next hear o f us — Page Thirty-six AS SOPHOMORES Wise in our own conceit, we returned in the fall of 1910, determined to keep alive the splendid record of our Freshman year. Some of the well known faces were among the miss- ing, while twelve new names were added to our class-roll. Because of the confidence that we had gained through our struggles as Freshmen, we were able to inflict defeat upon the new but weak bunch of Freshmen in every event. The begin- ning of instruction of the “younglings” was the posting of the Freshmen rules and regulations, by which we desired to govern them, in large bold posters. After this declaration of our bold, fierce spirit came the bowl-fight and the football game, and in each of these contests “1913” emerged, the triumphant victor. Because of the disobedience on the part of the Freshmen, it became necessary to renew the instructions set forth on the posters to the young upstarts ; but be it remembered that all such instruction was given in the spirit of a Prometheus, not in the spirit of the avenging Furies following Orestes. On the evening of February 21, 1911, was held the crowning event of our Sophomore year, — our banquet at the Allen. A full account of this memorable event is found on an- other page of this valuable book. In athletics our class upheld its enviable record of the previous year. We again won the inter-class track meet, finished second best in the inter-class basketball series, defeated the Freshmen in baseball, and had representatives among the “M” men in football and track. Another eventful work of our Sophomore year was the publishing of a college calendar, which created quite a sensation and gave expression to “ 1 3’s” fine appreciation of the beautiful. In concluding the history of our Sophomore year I can find no words more fitting than those of Shakespeare: “Thus far our fortune had kept an upward course, and we were graced with wreaths of victory.” Page Thirty-seven AS JUNIORS We began the third year of our work at Muhlenberg with a total of thirty-two young men, now more quiet, dignified, and reserved, and standing irresolute in their determination to guide the ship of state of the “Blue and Old Gold” most successfully over all the stormy waves that might arise in our Junior year. Those higher in authority appeared among us and said, “Still a step higher ye shall go. No longer shall ye be grouped among those known as underclassmen, for ye are more worthy than they. Enter into a higher court and be ye Juniors.” — Selah. No more can we sing of glorious battles, of poster night, and the like; all these belong to the foolish days of the past. Their worth, however, are felt, and, because of them, we can truly appreciate Carlyle’s lines: “The gold that is refined in the hottest furnace comes out the purest.” We now have turned our minds to a life of quiet dignity and to the pursuit of knowledge. The wearing of this crown of dignity awakens our sympathy with Henry IV., when he wailed: “Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.” In college activities our class has been well represented this year. We had six men on the varsity football squad, and among these Wacker won everlasting fame by scoring Muhlen- berg’s first touchdown against our rivals, F. M. Bixler, also one of our tribe, the star punter for the last three years, was elected captain for next season. In Glee Club our class is well represented, one of our members being on the college quartet and also leader of the club. Following the pace set in our Freshman year, we have kept up a high standard of scholarship in our class work, realizing that this, together with the advancement of fellowship among our classmates and among all men, was the best asset of our college course. The production of this ClARLA has been the crowning event of our Junior year. We feel sure that we have established a new standard in the history of our college annual. The successful event of its publication is only in harmony with our past successful history. Page Thirty-eight Junior Class First Term William L. Katz Charles H. Esser - Matthias H. Richards Frank H.

Granted, that beer is a bad thing to begin with, we would still like to inform you that P. G. Beer is pretty good beer. When we first gathered as a class, we wondered who this old bald-headed man that answered to such a queer name could be, but we soon discovered that this Beer “had a head on” his shoulders that did other things than evaporate in bubbles. “Pharoah,” although a little erratic at times, has proved himself to be a fellow who is ready to stand up for his convictions. When he makes a statement, he sticks to it to the dregs, and this fact often causes little tilts between the Profs, and our classmate. During “Beery’s” first two years at college the faculty ruling preventing intoxicating liquors in the “dorms” forced him to room down town, but this ruling has now been amended. “Pharaoh’s” name is seldom seen on the lists of conditions, although he had the dis- tinction of being the only man in the class to flunk in Religion. His greatest joy is to put up a good bluff, and it is a common sight to see “Beery” shaking his head in assent, as if he knew all about it, when some deep theory is being explained. In spring-time as a true lover, “Phares” makes numerous voyages in schooners to his native village, but when anything is said about the young lady who wants to become Mrs. Beer, he declares that these are a re- sult of his employment as chef at the Menlo Casino. “Beery” is a Prohibitionist and a Demo- crat, which is some combination, especially in the Lehigh Valley. In spite of all the fun that we have with his name, “Fairy” is a jovial fellow with an ever ready smile. He has informed us that law, business, or politics will be his calling, and we feel sure that he will make good. For the benefit of the ladies who read this, “Phares” wishes us to state that he “wears” brown hair, parted on the side. Truly “1913” can con- sider itself fortunate, since Beer and cigars (Seegers) are with us always. Page Fort tj GEORGE W. BIXLER EASTON, PA. “George,” “Bix” " He runs, he leaps, he falls upon the grass. The athletic idol of our class.” “ A much changed man.” Born at Easton, Pa., February 17, 1891.

Perhaps the most characteristic feature about our friend “Bix” is his laconic disposi- tion. He is never quiet and yet never says much that will cause any alarm. This trait will lead to his becoming a great lawyer, because the jury will be ready to do almost anything to stop his gush of words. Like all the “Spartans,” he is a good athlete. He has been on the track and football teams ever since his entrance into college, and he has always believed in strict training. He is always willing to sacrifice for the advancement of his Alma Mater on track or gridiron. When the team elected him as next year’s captain of the football team, they bestowed merited reward for his untiring efforts through three long hard campaigns. A slight tendency to play football in “gym” costume has kept him idle during the winter months. This winter, however, he has had strenuous training for track by running all over Allentown in search of “ads” for the Ciarla. His eloquence has loosened the purse strings of many a hard-headed business man, much to the latter’s surprise. From this it can be seen that “George” has been a first rate business manager. In one study particularly does “Bix” specialize. That is womankind. When once a girl “looks good” to him everything else is forgotten until the attractiveness wears off or a new affinity appears. He runs a close race with Blatt for the “fussing” honors of the class. The other studies of his course are somewhat of a joke to him, and give him an excellent chance for doing some fine acting, which has tied “Bix” over many tight places. Even Dr. Haas has succumbed to the wealth of eloquence possessed by this student of oratory. Always ready for excitement, “Bix” has ever been active in all class affairs. His one regret is that he could not be a sophomore for two or more years. His ceaseless activity and ready tongue will make him a famous jurist, because when “Bix” makes up his mind not even the faculty can make him change it. Page Forty-one FRANK H. BLATT BERNVILLE, PA. “Roses,” “Leaf” “ There ' s a wee fault they would lay to me; I lilfe the lasses, Cude forgive me. " Born at Bernville, Pa., November 17, 1891. Pre- pared at Perkiomen Seminary.

Perkiomen Club. Woodrow Wilson Club. Reformed. Law. This smiling, rosy cheeked youth hails from Bernville. His sunny nature soon made him a favorite in town, especially with the fair sex. His presence in church and Sunday School has often been accounted for after service. Rarely, if ever, does our friend come directly back to college after church. While his primary claim to distinction lies in his weakness for the fair sex, Frank has other gifts. As an artist, none in the class can surpass him. Samples of his ability are scat- tered everywhere throughout this book. As an athlete, it is as a baseball player that our classmate excels. Unfortunately, he has had little chance to display his marvelous (?) skill at college, but never tires of relating stories about games played during the summer months, all won by his wonderful pitching and scientific place hitting. He expects some day to win another world’s series for the Athletics. He is inclined to let things tak e their course in the class-room, his specialty being aes- thetic dancing at which he is an adept, having received private instructions at the great Allen- town fair. This rare quality of our Bernville rosebud, although seemingly a very innocent one, has, however, exerted a vast influence on our representative from the north, the renowned “Squeezicks.” Our advice to “Roses,” therefore, is to discontinue such performance not that we care at all, but it’s “bad music” and might really be fatal eventually in the lives of some of our classmates. Blatt, however, has many good and virtuous qualities and it is these that have caused “Roses” to be a shining light in Allentown society. He is an honorary member of the “Man- shy” Club, although he is seldom seen shy of a lady. We feel safe, however, in asserting that Frank will have a rosy career as a lawyer, since his winning smile is enough to convince any jury of the merits of his arguments. Page Forty-two WILLIAM G.

Behold the senior member of our class. If Shakespeare had lived twenty-eight years ago, he would surely have had a subject on which to write a most interesting play, on the occasion of this man’s birth in England. When yet quite young, he was brought to America, where he has lived ever since. He received his preliminary education at Philadelphia, and later prepared for college at Chester, Pa. “Bill” entered Muhlenberg as a freshman in the fall of 1908, but realizing that the “Class of 1912” was not in his class he absented himself for a year, and returned as a mem- ber of our much renowned class. “Thomas,” as he is generally known by his classmates, moves about in his own peculiar lit- tle way. The “queen” at the ball has no influence over him, the wrath of Apollo can not scare him; no, nor did the sentence pronounced on him in psychology by Dr. Haas have any effect on him. In fact, “Bill” is very cold-hearted, cold-blooded, and even fearless. Our classmate, sad to relate, has on one occasion deviated from the straight and nar- row path, and he had been given up by his classmates as entirely lost; after our head aluminum representative prayed for his deliverance, however, he was immediately brought home. Will is a great admirer of the beautiful ; he can see beauty both in women and castles, and it is for this reason that he makes frequent trips to New Castle. He is full of wit and humor. As an artist, he has greatly added to the beauty of our Ciarla, as his drawings in it indicate. “Bill” expects to take up engineering as his chosen profession, and since he is ambitious, sincere, faithful, and honest, we feel confident that his efforts are bound to bring success.

Friends, gaze upon the greatest dramatic, social and athletic critic of Muhlenberg Col- lege. “Hod” was born in Alburtis, but before the country and the fascination of living in the same could make much of an impression on our critical friend, he became a resident of Allentown, the glare and bustle of which has held his undivided attention ever since. He was a shining light in the social circles of Allentown High School and was also one of her leading athletes. He captained the football team through one of High’s most successful seasons. Because of his ability on the gridiron, Fred was persuaded to enter A. P. S. where he also was a football hero. For some unknown reason he has never given us an exhibition of his ability at Muhlenberg, further than being a strong addition to our Sophomore class team. Fred’s ability in basketball was displayed in the inter-class series last year. “1913” only lost the silver cup after Fred was afflicted with heart failure on the day of our decisive game. This biography would be incomplete without mentioning “Hod’s” activities in the social world. He at one time personally informed some of us that he once had such a severe infatu- ation for a certain fair lady, and that the results were so serious that he fears making another attempt. He, however, has in his possession an unabridged list of the age, color, and disposi- tion of every Allentown girl. Fred’s ability as a dramatic critic is taken as authority by many of his friends, who usually consult him before seeing a show. He also possesses a keen knowl- edge of the art of argumentation. In a dispute concerning football or baseball, he ranks well with Wacker in producing arguments with weight. As a student, Fred also possesses “some” ability. He really adores Psychology, and he usually manages to get several hours in his curriculum under his favorite. Dr. Wackernagle. We now feel safe in closing this biography of one of the best all-around Muhlenberg men, feel- ing assured that before many years are past we shall see “Hod” as a progressive business man in the lumber industry.

Gentle reader, if thou wouldst remain gentle, don’t provoke the above image to any of his sarcastic traits. It is a common scene up in Berks. For instance some mortal fool that is, comes and dumps his pipe ashes in “Happy Hooligan Butch’s” domain. Then it happens. Not that “Butch” is disagreeable. Far be it from such. He was even Class President at one time. But he just cuts loose as a matter of principle and practice. Harry is one of the most conscientious football scrubs that ever donned the Cardinal and Gray. He has all kinds of nerve, and as a consequence “Butch” has his arm in a sling or is on crutches three-quarters of the season. He sure is the hard luck athlete. In baseball he is always the first man to be “beaned.” In track practice, it is “Butch” who gets spiked. If some one on the football field does not like to land on the ground it is Cressman’s anatomy that is selected for the intervening cushion. But all this doesn’t “phaze” “Butch;” not a bit of it. Incidentally, Cressman knows someone in White Haven, who knows how to make fudge and bake cakes. And he is a good sport, too. Many and oft are the times when he gives a real “feed” to some of the poor, suffering boarding students. So, on the whole, we sure do think an awful lot of this knight of the pineapple hair-cut. As a side issue, for some reason or other, Cressman always pulls through his studies with flying colors; and he throws the best bluff seen here. Well, “Butch,” we leave thee here. Good luck, and an easy passage to your goal of Mount Airy. Page Forty-fwe ELMER R.

Here you see our Orwigsburg representative. He came to college filled with ambition and lofty ideals, but like many other college students has failed in his plans. There are various reasons for this, the most important being his weakness for the fair sex. Like his chum, however, he has realized the fickleness of woman, and has joined him in con- verting their room into a monastery. A glance at the mantle will convince the visitor that the thoughts of the occupant wander far oftener than they will admit. Another reason for his failure is the athletic life at Muhlenberg. When “1912” went on its pleasant vacation, and threatened to ruin our football team, our friend came out and nobly stemmed the tide of hostile warriors sweeping in at the guard position left vacant by the beefy “Decose.” He wears his “M” on his class jersey, thus showing loyalty to his college and to his class; a good trait in any one. Elmer has an abundance of college spirit which manifests itself at football games, and for several days thereafter. It is necessary for him to carry a megaphone about for some time, after a victory, so hoarse does his enthusiasm make him. He is always to be depended upon in any enterprise which tends to elevate the college, even willingly sacrificing his studies to par- ticipate in a celebration. As he intends to enter the ministry, he goes around from church to church, seeking a knowledge of the inner workings of such organizations. We feel that our classmate will be a successful divine, if he but quit his roving life and settle down. In concluding, we wish to call his attention to the following bit of advice, “A rolling stone gathers Page Forty-six no moss. WILLIAM F. DREHS SASSAMANSVILLE, PA. “Willie, " ’ “Blossom” “ His modest loolfs the cottage might adorn Blushing as the primrose peeping beneath the thorn.” Born at Sassamansville, Pa., September 19, 1890. Prepared at Perkiomen Seminary. Entered College Sep- tember, 1910. Classical Course. Euterpea L. S. Class Football (2). Class Track (2). Woodrow Wilson Club. Secretary Student Council. Perkiomen Club. Lutheran. Teaching. To one who does not know Drehs, the above quotation might seem far fetched; but no rose ever bloomed fairer than his blushing countenance. In our first year “Blossom” was so quiet that we hardly knew that he was among us. Gradually, however, his true worth be- came known and his election to the Student Council followed. As Shakespeare said, “His looks did argue him replete with modesty.” “Willie” hails from Montgomery County, down on the farm, where “dutchness” pre- dominates. Let it be said to his glory, however, that by his persistence he has overcome the effects of these early environments. Among the fair sex, Drehs was slow to mix. If the mails, however, are an indication, it would seem that he did more than sell aluminum ware during the past summer while he was in Lebanon. It is also worth noticing that he has lately become interested in dancing — -we are all wondering why. It has always been a question open to discussion why this quiet young man is so interested in Sunday school work. Our friend has never been able to decide as yet whether his work in life should be devoted to the ministry or to teaching. Drehs is honest to the degree where we believe Diogenes would have extinguished his lan- tern on the first meeting. He has been known to return even matches and postage stamps. Wherever “Willie’s” smiling face is seen there follows sunshine and good fellowsbio, for no one can be gloomy near that sunny chap. Because of these virtues, coupled with his knowl- edge of human nature, we predict a successful career for our classmate in whatever vocation he pursues, be it scientific farming, teaching, or the ministry; all of which professions stand in need of such men as Drehs has shown himself to be.

ESSER KUTZTOWN, PA. “Hunk,” “Hillegass” “ He has talents which are rapidly unfolding into life.” “ Stuffed with all honorable virtures.” Born at Kutztown, Pa., January 10, 1892. Prepared at K. S. N.

Keystone Club. Class Vice President (2). Democrat. Lutheran. Journalism. Our friend “Chollie” appeared in our midst in our Freshman year, direct from the rural surroundings of our “Dutch” Kutztown. He brought with him a smile that could no t be effaced by the wild pranks of the bold Sophomores, or the heavy responsibility of upholding the ship of state of the “Blue and Old Gold” in our second year, or even the depths and mysticisms with which we had to deal in psychology in our Junior year, — no, all these gloomy and dark days have been unable to cast any gloom on our most congenial friend and classmate, “Hunk.” “Hunk” soon became a popular favorite about the campus. He was popular enough to be on the Sophomore indignation list, but was saved from sharing the fate of the renowned Sextette from Muhlenberg by some mysterious intervention. When the call was issued for candidates for our class basketball team “Chollie” was one of the first ones to respond. He appeared with all his former acquired skill at K. S. N. S. and made the team with hands down. He is recognized as one of the best guards at college at present, and last year he captained the boys who came in second best. In fact, Charles has always been athletically inclined. In Allentown society Charles H. Esser is quite a popular favorite, as he dearly loves to dance. At all full-dress functions of note “Charlie” is usually the only Muhlenberg to honor the occasion by his presence in a Glee Club suit, which fact is conclusive evidence that Kutztown is coming on the map gradually. Charles always likes to be the “pop,” when he is out on a marauding expedition with his chums. This is all very good, but our advice is to be a little more subjective at times in your remarks. After a few years at Princeton and some practical work in New York Citv, “Hunk” will go about his father’s business and assume undisputed charge of the Kutztown Patriot. May his future be crowned with wreaths of success. Page Forty-eight SAMUEL S. FOX ALBURTIS, PA. “Uncle Sam” “ IV omen are made to be loved , not to be analyzed, vivi- sected or understood .” — Elbert Hubbard. Born at Huff’s Church, Pa., July 27, 1886. Pre- pared at K. S. N. S. and Perkiomen Seminary. Entered College as Sophomore, September, 1910. Classical Course. Euterpea L. S. Classical Club. Treasurer. Keystone Club. Perkiomen Club. Woodrow Wilson Club. Demo- crat. Lutheran. Teaching. The history of our class presents the names of many future great men, but the name of “Uncle Sam” stands pre-eminent. He was born of noble parentage and was taught reading, writing and arithmetic in the village school of Alburtis. Later he graduated from the Kutztown State Normal School. Since he was not satisfied with this amount of education, he enter’d Muhlenberg College in order to prepare himself further for a serious duty in life. The quotation which is used as a text for this dissertation is not used because our friend “Sam” is a “fusser,” but because it is a pet saying of his. We have never been able to solve “Sam’s” position on the “woman” question. Our mate’s favorite study is English and on this theory he applies his pet theory, i. e. concentration of effort. He can be seen at any hour, either pouring over one of Elbert Hubbard’s magazines or writing love sonnets to “Katie.” Fox has a very cheerful disposition and always has a smile with which to greet you; little trifles do not worry him. A good cigar coupled with a book of Hubbard’s philosophy make him a most contented man. Although “Sam” has a fine physique, and is as artfully cunning and sly as any fox, he does not take an active interest in athletics. He prefers to spend his time in the study of litera- ture, and it is his ambition to become a great national writer of prose and poetry. He expects to spend his next vacation touring New England on foot, in order to become more familiar with the great writers of that section of our country. Although “Uncle Sam” only joined our ranks in our illustrious Sophomore year, he has shown that he is an able man. We hope that at some time in the future our class will be honored by this man’s reputation as an author. Page Forty-nine DAVID H. FREDERICK READING, PA. “Freddie” “ His voice rvas ever soft. Gentle and lo tv, an excellent thing in woman. " Born near New Jerusalem, Pa., September 30, 1885. Prepared at K. S. N. S. Taught school for several years; entered College September, 1910. Classical Course. Euterpea L. S. College Track (2). Class Track (2). M. C. A. Keystone Club. Monitor (2). Democrat. Lutheran. Ministry. 1 his chap was born in a religious neighborhood. In fact, it would be difficult to conceive a more fitting spot for the birthplace of our hero than New Jerusalem. As a pedagogue, he displayed rare qualities of leadership over the infant minds entrusted to his care. He was somewhat afraid of the ominous 1 3 connected with our class, and thus was led to wait a year before joining us, after discovering that the unlucky number had no evil influence over us. “Freddie” was one of our mainstays on the track last year, taking an active part in sev- eral gruelling races. His experience will no doubt result in his wearing an “M” after the track season is over this year. Cupid has in vain attempted to pierce the heart of our Reading representative with his winged darts. However, it is rumored that he lately rescued a distressed damsel from a ter- rible death one dark night, for which gallant deed application has been made for a Carnegie medal to adorn the breast of our modest and gallant hero. Yes, he is modest, but also honest and conscientious. As a scholar, he is a type of the class that plods slowly along, but that gets there just the same. Another one of the minis- terial clan, he is naturally interested in Sunday school work, but even more interested in the members of his Bible class. He has often said that the inspiration for his lessons lay in the pretty eyes gazing upon him with their mute appeals for deliverance from spinsterhood. Our classmate will be a welcome addition to the Lutheran ministry, if he loses some of his Russelite ideas and wears his hair in a different fashion, which faults are at present the only things hindering him from making a complete success in his chosen calling.

This gentleman very seldom enjoys the luxury of a good breakfast, and although his eyes are open and he moves about, his waking is invariably at 2 P. M. After three years of experience and scientific research, we have discovered that there is only one way to keep him awake and that is — talk about girls. Instantly he brightens up, a semblance of a smile flickers across his otherwise rotund countenance and he is once more alive. Beware, girls, of this cold-blooded heart crusher. His “cases” last only a short time and he enjoys the interim in the arms of Morpheus. Another great weakness of “Rumy’s” is the aching void above his belt. His middle name should be “Eats,” not Espin. He holds all the medals in the endurance eating con- tests at college and never misses an opportunity to display them before the general public. Although not a scholastic shining light, “Rumese” has a habit of accomplishing things in his own quiet, unassuming way; whenever there are any jobs about college to be done with which there is no honor connected, “Roomy” always “lands” them. We often wonder what “Rumy” will BEACOM. There was a period (Dot) in his life when he wanted to commit matrimony, but that inclination has changed for a professorship in a Prep, school with an op- portunity to coach different branches of athletics. We would suggest, however, that a job as night watchman at Menlo Park would be in his line. We dare not neglect his good qualities in passing, since “Roomy” is especially noted for his satirical wit and his unsurpassed record as a silent tenor on the Glee Club. However, notwithstanding his love for girls, sleep, and “eats,” Groff has the “stuff” in him to make good, and we will bear the respon sibility for cruelly cutting in his prime anybody who denies this statement. Come on, boy, wake up and make good. Page Fifty-one ROBERT T. HUTCHINSON SOUTH BETHLEHEM, PA. “ Humor is one of the elements of genius.” Born at South Bethlehem, Pa., July 27, 1889. Pre- pared at Bethlehem Prep. School. Euterpea L. S. Scien- tific Course. Republican. Teaching. The original of this portrait is a man famed throughout Muhlenberg as the only man who has the nerve to wear his particular type of raiment. As a matter of fact, Hutchinson has been among us for so short a time, that we have learned only three things about him. First, the afore- said coolness with which he displays a loud block style creation that even “Hans” himself would hesitate to don. Second in order (or disorder), he displays a zeal in making use of the in- terrogation point, which is amongst the smaller “Fry” at our institution only approximated. When all is well in the class-room, and the Prof, is calmly pursuing the even tenor (or bass, or soprano, if he is particularly interested in a subject) of his way, suddenly a sound is heard; all look up astounded. But there is no cause for alarm, it’s only “Hutch” saying “professor” with a rising inflection. Then as the said professor explains to our friend that water runs down hill, or something like that, the class settles down to a moment of undisturbed repose. But I believe we said that there were three things about which we were longing to expatiate in this discourse. Here comes the third. Hutchinson, it is rumored, is “spliced.” Do you get me, “Steve?” Married, even if he does have curly hair. Seems to be slightly habitual in our class. We’re not prepared to make affidavit, but such is the rumor. If the re- port is true, why hard — no, congratulations, old boy. If it’s not, more of the same thing. But such is life, and if the boy’s hooked up, far be from such as we to criticize or even to condone. Besides these more noticeable characteristics, “Hutch” has other little traits. At the pres- ent writing he has not as yet flunked psychology or religion. Therefore he is either a plugger or a some class bluffer. He had a headache once, so we rather choose the latter and more honorable alternative. There’s another admirable feature about this chap. He studies chem- istry like a fiend, and really seems to enjoy it. As a class we have had the acquaintance of this young man only a few months, but we can say that he has proven himself a mighty congenial classmate, and we wish that a few more like him would be in our class; then the Profs, would be so busy answering questions that we’d all have a good time.

Get a line on the expert bricklayer. “Bill” goes to work regularly every vacation, and comes back with enough money to buy all his books, and that’s going some, believe me. Before “Bill” came here Temple University was the seat of his endeavors, and if “Bill” is a type of “1 emple” we wish they would get busy and send us a car-load of their men. Katz is just about the busiest man in the class. To be Feader of the Glee Club, an “M” guard, and chairman of a M. C. A. Committee is enough to keep almost anybody busy. And then, of course, studies come in every once in a while; and the marvel of it all is that Katz pulls mighty good grades, for all his outside work. Katz has the nerve of a “jack-engine.” When the historic “stair rush” came off, Katz scrapped his way through the whole class of 1912, chair legs, nose guards and all, and then asked where the fight was going on. Katz has also been President of our class and he’s been a good one. “Bill” has one fault. He is a trifle too serious, and our advice is to learn Rule 47, Order of Owls. Not that he takes himself too seriously, but his work. Although our friend is earnest and sincere, he also has a keen sense of the fitness of things, which sense frequently compells him to make passionate appeals for action to his fellow-students. While at college he is seldom seen with those destroyers of a college youth’s industry — the women. It is rumored — but it is only a rumor so we will say nothing. Katz has proved conclusively that he will be a howling success in the ministry, so we will leave him with the prayer that when he preaches in the evening he will receive better treatment than that accorded to other cats under similar circumstances.

Here the old adage, “Great things are wrapped up in small bundles,” applies. Ever since the event of this man’s addition to Nazareth’s population, “Germie” has been the living answer to the question, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?” He left Nazareth at the age of thirteen, and entered Allentown Prep. School, where his brilliant qualities as a “stude” were first discovered. Two years later, he left Prep, taking with him every available prize in addition to winning the Muhlenberg scholarship. Making up in activity what he lacks in size, “Germie” has never been quiet a minute in our midst. His activities are so numerous that only a brief mention of several must suffice. Football, baseball, and track have all been tried by this restless man, but in basketball he has been our greatest hero; his sharp eye and fast floor work, having been responsible for many a victory for the “Blue and Old Gold.” In football, “Germ” delights in the distinction of having played on the varsity against the Carlisle Indians. He was outweighed about 1 50 pounds, but lived to tell the tale; so for furthe information inquire of “Germ.” Despite all these other attractions, the Nazarine has succumbed to the wiles of women. He just loves to sit and philosophize with “a dear little queen.” He, however, is extremely popular; in fact he is so bored with the girls that he has to draw lots to decide which one he will favor with his company. Like all young men, he is thoughtless and care-free. The rare style and quality of this ClARLA are fair examples of his innate power in the literary world. His ability as a student is unsurpassed; he being beyond a doubt, the youngest student to graduate from Muhlenberg. Just what his future will be cannot be told, bu his large and varied experiences, will furnish him ample motive power to carry him to the highest pinnacle in any profession, whether the law or the ministry. Page Fifty-jour WALLACE R. KNERR RED HILL, PA. “Papa,” “Ivy” “ The best part of man y a man is his rvife. " Born at Frederick, Pa., Aug. 8, 1887. Prepared at Perkiomen Seminary. Entered college as Fresh. September, 1909. Classical Course. Euterpea L. S. Classical Club. M. C. A. Perkiomen Club. Woodrow Wilson Club. Dem- ocrat. Lutheran. Ministry. Married at Red Hill, Nov. 30, 191 1. Bells and trumpets. Enter Knerr, clad in a wedding-gown. Wallace was born on a wash day, and the hustle and bustle which greeted his just-opened eyes made such an impres- sion on his infant mind that he has been working hard ever since. When he came to college he thought a well earned rest was to be his, but this idea was quickly dispelled. The first girl he met spread the news ol her “find” so rapidly that Wal- lace was soon overwhelmed by invitations to visit the young ladies of Allentown. For a while he was submerged in the social whirl of this great city, but of late has changed radically. It appears that since his marriage, for he poses as a benedict, she objects very strenuously to such actions, and so he had no recourse but to obey and to live the life of a hermit while at college. Our friend is a natural born story teller, and has amused audiences for hours at a time with weird tales of life in a big and wicked city. This ability stands him in good stead, when he is on the programme in literary society, his debates and orations being master-pieces of persuasive eloquence. He is also in great demand as a speaker on special occasions in the Sunday Schools in town. Knerr is a very studious and bustling chap, always doing something. Strange to say he has never sought to rid himself of this superabundance of energy by indulgence in athletics, although we firmly believe that he has great possibilities as a runner. But his ever ready ex- cuse when urged to appear on the track is that he is so busy that he has no time even to sleep. We do not know whether our classmate will become a preacher or a teacher, but his wide experience and good common sense, coupled with the fact that he has already chosen a mate for life’s stormy voyage, will tend to make him a brilliant success in either of these profes- sions that he will pursue. Page Fifty-five EDGAR W. KOHLER EGYPT, PA. “Squeaky,” “Egg-wiped” “ And still, and still the wonder grew That one small head could carry all he linew.” Born at Egypt, Pa., Feb. 11, 1891. Prepared at Allentown Prep. School. Entered College as Fresh. Sep- tember, 1 909. Classical Course. Euterpea L. S. Class Secretary (2). Sophomore Classical German Prize. Re- publican. Reformed. Ministry. Here is our bustling Egyptian, who is never happy unless he has something to do. His restless energy has made for him the enviable reputation of being the busiest man at college, “Squire” of course excepted. Only the strong character of our young Socrates, however, saved him from utter ruin as the result of his intimate relations with Beer for the first two years of his course. Edgar has already won fame as an orator and a German student. Whenever his shrill, high-pitched voice is heard in literary society, all must give heed to its insistent pleadings. Al- though born in Egypt, he has also a wonderful grasp on German, for did not the Sophomore German prize find its way into his pockets after a brief struggle with the other members of the class? He is an excellent student, whiling away his spare moments by writing gems of prose which periodically find their way into the columns of the Allentown newspapers. Besides his literary activity, we must mention Edgar’s conscientiousness in carrying out his official duties. For instance, when he was monitor of Euterpea, he always used a watch with a big second hand dial, and on three occasion reported men for staying out one-half second over time. He displays the same zeal in the class-room. “Squeaky” has enough “notes” to write a symphony. He stayed awake for half a night once, because he didn’t know if Ross wanted a period or a comma at a certain place, and he actually cried once when he missed the trend of thought in Dr. H aas’ Psychology lecture. So he keynote of Edgar is conscientiousness. Well, stick to it, old boy. If sticking to it ever won fair lady, you’ll have the best wife in Egypt. Page Fifty-six ROBERT H. KRAUSE EAST GREENVILLE, PA. “Caruso” “ The world l(nows only two , that ' s Rome and .” Born at East Greenville, Pa., November 20, 1887. Prepared at Perkiomen Seminary. Entered College as a Soph. September, 1910. Classical Course. Euterpea L. S. College Track (2). Class Track (2). Classical Club. M. C. A. Perkiomen Club. Associate Editor of ClARLA. Republican. Teaching. Lutheran. Fame has already come to the original of this portrait, for the sages of his native town have recognized his abilities and the town’s name stands as a witness to the esteem in which he is held. A great mistake was made when “Caruso” was not allowed to sing on the College Glee Club, for his marvelous (?) voice can be heard far above all others any morning in Chapel. Keeping up the family tradition, Robert has decided upon the ministry as his life work. Like all the future D.D.’s he teaches a Sunday School class. This occupation has led him into matrimonial entanglement, for while engaged in showing others the right way, he lost him- self in the mazes of a pretty girl’s heart. “Bob’” receives valuable experience in oratory on the rostrum of Euterpea, of which so- ciety he is one of the most loyal members. Krause is always ready to distinguish himself by using an abundance of flowery language, and his literary abilities have gained for him a merited position on this ClARLA staff. A devoted admirer of the fragrant weed, nothing gives our friend more pleasure than to lean back in his chair, pipe in his mouth and feet on his table, beguiling his listeners with tales of youthful pranks at Perkiomen. According to these he was then a paragon of virtue, a fable he would fain have us still believe. Although no world beater, Krause has done good work with the shot and discus, repre- senting Muhlenberg in several meets last season. His experience should make him a valuable member of our track squad this spring. As a student, our congenial friend maintains the repu- tation of the Perkiomen Club for hard and consistent effort. His winning smile and ability to joke will aid very materially in making him a successful and shining “Sky Pilot.” Page Fifty-seven JOHN E. LAUB EGYPT, PA. “Silent John” “ The silent are not always w se.” “ Spealj; for yourself John. " Born at Egypt, Pa., September 19, 1891. Prepared at Whitehall High School and Moravian Parochial School. P.B. Course. Euterpea L. S. Philosophical Society. Sec- retary (2). M. C. A. Democrat. We present for your consideration another friend from Egypt. John is the exact oppo- site of his garrulous fellow foreigner; he never speaks unless he is spoken to. Behind the mask of silence, however, he hides an excellent understanding of all things German, being the “Dutch- man” of our class. In his infant days an idea was born in “Silent John’s” mind to become a pedagogue, and this idea became a fact, and the Class of 1913 was made larger by his presence. Going to and fro from the trolley car was always held to be suffic ient exercise for this voluptuous Egyp- tian, and he never took part in any athletics. It is nevertheless true that his wonderful feats in the “gym” combining both ability and skill (?) have frequently filled us with envy. Little can be learned of our friend’s experiences with the ladies, but of late he has been seen much in their society. Hence we conclude, gentle reader, that he has been afflicted with heart disease. Laub’s specialty is mathematics. So loathe was he to leave Dr. Bauman’s presence that he elected to stay with him another year in order to delve into the mysterious realms of higher mathematics. Despite many misfortunes, John with the aid of his ever present pipe has been able to navigate past all the reefs of college life safely, and bids fair to become a successful peda- gogue after his graduation. May he be “(er) laub (t)” to guide away a youth along the road to wisdom, which he himself has so successfully traveled. Page Fifty-eight EARL G. LOSER PROGRESS, PA. “Squirrel” “ And maidens lived n nth no other thoughts I hen to love and be loved by me.” Born at Annville, Pa., July 6, 1893. Prepared at Lebanon Valley College and Annville, High School. En- tered Muhlenberg as Junior September, 1911. Scientific Course. Euterpea L. S. Varsity Football (3). Lutheran. Chemist. Welcome to our class Oh! Yea Squirr«l. Girls, beware of his enchanting ways, and colleges hearken and take heed of him on the gridiron. Earl entered our higher institution of learning, after spending two years in preparation at Lebanon Valley, and we are glad to say that he has proved himself to be a most valuable addition to our already most illustrious class. On the gridiron, “Squirrel” was renowned as our 140-pound baby. By consistent (?) training, indomitable pluck, and endurance, our hero won for himself a position on the Var- sity in his first year in our midst. His alertness and ability to run with the ball was demon- strated most emphatically by his playing against his former Alma Mater, after which victory we fully realized the presence of another “find.” We are sorry that space will not permit us to discourse at length on his other countless athletic achievements. Suffice it to say that “Squirrel” looms up fast as a promising track man and also as a basketball star; all this can be accounted for by the fact that “he has speed,” as his cousin Paul says, which was demon- strated to us on the football field and also at Maeley’s. After, nay even before, the close of the football season, Earl began playing a new game with which most (?) of us are not familiar, but which won “Squirrel’s” admiration at first sight. The ball now changed its shape, and he began playing with hearts instead of with the pigskin. It didn’t take long for him to be formally introduced into Allentown society. He won the prize for receiving the largest number of pink envelopes during the last month, with ease. Earl has formed the acquaintance of quite a few “queens,” but he has made an early decision, and has been paying close attention to one blue-eyed blonde for the last six months. Mention here must also be made of his dancing ability, another athletic inclination. His love for the same almost resulted disastrously for him, but by an eleventh hour repentance he was allowed to retain his “M.” We feel sure, in bidding Earl good-bye, that after he has become accustomed to the white lights of our great city, he will become a close student and eventually will become one of Muhlenberg’s most noted alumni. Page Fifty -nine PAUL LOSER ANNVILLE, PA. “Polly” “ Love by most, admired by all.” “ Another argument against co-education.” Born at Annville, Pa., February 10, 1893. Prepared at Annville High School and Lebanon Valley College. En- tered College as a Junior September, 1911. Ph.B. Course. Euterpea L. S. Varsity Football (3). Philosophical So- ciety. M. C. A. Cabinet. Woodrow Wilson Club. Teach- ing. The original of this likeness is Paul Loser, one of the latest additions to our class. With his cousin, Earl, he forms what is commonly known as the “Loser boys.’’ P. Loser, as he is designated by the Profs., hails from Annville, Lebanon County, where he has always lived in preference to any other place on earth. In fact it is the place. “Polly” graduated from Annville High in 1908, and attempted to satisfy his lofty ambitions and high ideals at Leb- anon Valley, but failing to do so entered College in the fall of 1911. We must all say that we are indeed glad to have “Polly” in our midst. Through close observation, we have been able to discover that this attractive young man (as the girls style him) knows how to use his large dark eyes effectively. If you should hap- pen to meet him, ask him for the latest developments in the art of flirtation. I would advise the following plan to follow when questioning him: “Mr. Loser, will you please tell me if it is to be considered the result of flirtation, if the lady clerk in a shoe store would smile sweetly at you and write her name and address on the soles of the shoes you just bought?” Immedi- ately a smile flickers across Paul’s fair countenance, and the expression on his face shows that he is already hugely interested. P. Loser in the future hopes to be a dispenser of historical and philosophical “dope” to struggling undergraduates. He is a devoted student of all sociological problems. He is al- ways eager to be introduced to the fairer portion of Allentown society. It is said that his black hair and regular features have captivated some of the fair maids; but “Polly” after each new venture, generally declares “a Lebanon Valley co-ed for mine.” It can be said to Paul’s credit that he takes a large, active interest in all college activities. Especially is this true of all phases of athletics, and he almost succeeded in winning his sweater in football last season. Paul also takes an interest in our student M. C. A., and is an ardent worker in the same. Page Sixty JOHN I. MECK PHILADELPHIA, PA. “Jawn,” “Jim” “ And rvhen you see his eyes light up Mirth and the Devil tal e the stirrup.

Ministry. Meek came to college with the determination to make a name for himself. He succeeded beyond his fondest hopes, being one of the martyr six even before matriculation. Full of energy and vim, things simply have to move when Jim’s around. This energy works off in all kinds of pranks and jokes, but our Quaker City representative is one of the best of fellows. He al- ways has a smile and kind word for everybody, and is a very capable entertainer. So capable is he in this respect, that he has many engagements with the fair sex of Allentown, Philadel- phia, and Fox Chase. Another vent for this energy is found in his great business activity. When not booming the football team or glee club, he is running about town seeking ads for this ClARLA. His presence on the staff and the numerous offices he holds speak volumes for the confidence of the student body in our Jim. Meek’s ability, as a political schemer, also cannot be questioned. His “unparalleled” foresight and keen mind in perceiving the proper course to follow have won for him much honor at College. It is this foresight which distinguishes John from the bar- barian, sociologically speaking. Meek expects to be a D.D. and is preparing for the future by holding lengthy discussions with Dr. Haas on all sorts of religious questions. Few can excel him as a student, and this fact, coupled with his business ability and general sociable nature leads us to the safe asser- tion that some day our classmate will become a leading divine.

He smiles aloud in the true brogue of the coal regions. “Ha! Ha! me love has not yet succumbed to me wiles, but I will win her yet wid me smiles.” The worst of it all is that “Conraker” accomplishes this very thing. For an all around original lover, “Cunny”, as “she” calls him, holds all the blue ribbons. To see “Con” weave his net around a fair damsel’s heart, as did the spider to the fly of old, is enough to bring tears to the eyes of any advocate of fair play. The course he pursues in bringing the girls to his feet may be traced as follows: He meets a girl, and smiles aloud at everything she says, whether it is humorous or not. Upon closer acquaintance, he make goo-goo eyes at her, and grows quite confidential in a manner, which “Billy” Shakespeare describes as: “Sighing like a furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress’ eyebrow.” A few more calls at her home, some flowers, and she is his; his, until he meets another, when the same regular programme is carried out. All you fellows that haven’t the reputations of heart crushers give this a trial. During such conquests, “Con” becomes very affectionate, even to the extent of embracing everybody he sits alongside of at the boarding-house. Scholastically, our friend is an unknown quantity, and athletically, he has only dis- played his ability as manager of our class baseball team and in running for trolley-cars, so that he can reach “her” house on time. We might suggest that he could cause great furor in the literary world, by publishing a book, entitled “Girls I Have Known.” The material to be taken from photographs, diaries, and letters in his possession. “Con” is one of the B.S. “studes” in our class, and he expects to hang out his shingle in the state of Utah. Well, we wish you a successful career, “Con”. Page Sixty-two MATTHIAS H. RICHARDS LIMA, OHIO “Cutey,” “Matt, " “General Muhlenberg” " Pause long enough in your labors to say, Heigho, I love you!

The reader is next to be treated to the beaming countenance of an illustrious man, born of illustrious parents. By this time you have of course inferred that the victim is no less than Matthias Richards. Now, reader, try a little experiment. (a). Gaze steadily at the portrait for at least a minute; then gently breathe, “Boy-dear!” Then see what happens. It will be best in order to get a more correct result to try this five times, so as to strike an average, (b). under the same experiment. (Parenthetically, we want to say that you must not be alarmed; this experiment does not have 24 divisions like those in psychology). Well here’s division, (b). Gaze sternly this time, and shout, “General!” This time a decidedly different effect will be produced. There are various other key words, but these are enough for the time being. “Mat” surely is the most ardent lover in the class. Sometimes you’ll see him gaze into space for a while, and then sigh and sigh again. In fact, it’s a regular cyclone of sighs. That’s sufficient proof of itself, but for “internal” evidence, look at the mail three times a day, and three times a day a dainty bit of stationery comes “Mat’s” way. Yet, “boy-dear” keeps remarkably well up in his studies. You see, he knows how to “control himself,” and can concentrate his mind. He is the originator of the third floor war-cry of Dicker! Dicker! Decose!, and in vari- ous other respects has proved his importance in our class. And why shouldn’t a descendant of Gen. Muhlenberg and Gen. Lee become illustrious? Now, one word more about “Cutey.” Mention “last Xmas a year ago” in the manner that Dr. H aas did, and watch the fair image blush. Yes, Blush with a capital B. All we can do, “Cutey,” is to extend to you our sympathy. This is the end of Richards. Pretty long for a five-foot piece of humanity, but all’s well that ends well, and “Cutey” ends well, small feet and a good head. Page Sixty-three THEODORE J. RITTER ALLENTOWN, PA. “Teddy " “ The kind of a Man who says not what he knows.” Born at Center Valley, Lehigh County, Pa., January 1 8, 1 890. Prepared at Allentown Preparatory School. Ph.B. Course. Euterpea Literary Society. Ph.B. Club. Levi Club. Artist ClARLA Staff. Republican Club mem- ber. Business. Gentle Readers! Your attention is invited to a short discussion of one of the Greatest American Citizens, Theodore . But I almost forgot about whom I was writing and must retrace my steps and tell you something about our jovial classmate. “Teddy” is another of our pleasant day students and upholds the reputation of 1913 among the girls in Allentown. We all know we cannot be experts in all lines and that the world needs specialists, therefore “Teddy” decided upon his line and has acted accordingly. Any morning you can ask him if he studied History or Religion and he will very nicely inform you that other engagements have kept him from his studies. ' T. J. spends considerable time with his chickens and indeed is quite a fancier and claims it is a profitable business. We believe he received some valuable hints from Prof. Fritch’s statistics in the 1912 ClARLA. Ritter is not much of an athlete but is an ardent admirer of all sports, even that of cards. He loves his pipe of briar because it brings back fond recol- lections of before. Theodore is an average student and might astound us, if there were not so many distracting influences always knocking at his study door. Our friend is an advocate of the physical training that can be derived from dancing. “Teddy” is also one of our artists, and informed us at his election that he was going to study the art of drawing during his vacations. Because his renowned teacher died he was un- able to do this and thus had to rely on his own natural ability. He, however, has done good work and is able to draw a picture a least bit sooner than his fellow artist, Wm. O. Booscher. Theodore is another one of our assortment of ministers’ sons. It is hard on the boy, too, for he “isn’t that kind of a fellow” at all. The saying, “in the spring a young man’s fancy” holds true of “Teddy”, because the singing of the birds and the budding of the trees is a sign for him to appear in his pea-green tie and sky-blue socks; but why should an artist not be a great lover of the rare and beautiful?

Ministry. 1 he youth whose countenance appears before you, dear ladies, hails from the cold climes of upper New York state. He graduated from the U. F. A., interpreted by some of his jeal- ous (?) classmates as the Utica Freak Academy. No, he is not of that same cold disposi- tion as is his native climate, he is only bashful. Luther is a handy man to have around the night before an examination. His great, large soul is only equaled by his mighty mind. He is sometimes called the last resort of informa- tion by those of his classmates who do not take notes during the recitation periods. His schol- arly ability is shown by the fact that he was first honor man in his sophomore year. While Luther is not exactly of athletic build, nevertheless, he takes a keen interest in athletics. He was a member of our class track team for two years and was also on the col- lege track team. Lately this young man’s athletic desires have led to a new path; his grace- ful feet can be seen polishing Maeley’s dance-floor several times a week. It has always been a question open to debate, however, whether it was Luther’s deep interest in athletics, or his love for the fair sex, which has induced “Lucifer” to be enhanced by the “Boston dip.” Our bashful friend is a very industrious and economic young man. He came among us inexperienced and youthful. While he has not yet learned to smoke cigarettes or to go “fuss- ing,” he will leave us, nevertheless, a well-rounded, wide-awake and noble young man. Be- cause of his keen intellect and his stick-to-a-tive spirit, we can only predict a successful career for Luther in his chosen work — the ministry. Page Sixty-ftve W. CLARENCE SCHLEGEL SHAMOKIN, PA. “Daisy,” “Clawrence” " She loves me, she loves me not. O Jealous y! thou green-eyed monster.” Born May 1, 1891, at Shamokin, Pa. Sophronia L. S. A T fl Fraternity. Scientific Course. John Lear Biological Society. Class Track (1, 2). College Track Squad (1, 2). “1 have seen lots of dirt in Allentown, but Shamokin has within its borders the largest dirt pile in the country.” This was the first and last public speech “Clawrence” has deliv- ered, since he entered college. One of the fellows interested in real estate thought that he was trying to be funny, when he said “lots of dirt,” and immediately “gloomed” on him; another remarked that Shamokin had sent Muhlenberg some of its dirt; ergo no more public speeches. In direct contrast to his cousin, “Conraker”, “Daisy” is a model of consistency in all things that pertain to love. He has onlv two of the feminine sex who are very near and dear to him, but from the worriment that these two girls cause him, one might think that the sins of the world were reSfing upon his shoulders. " Daisy” often pines all alone in his room, when she has been out with another fellow, and it requires two days for him to regain his natural composure and serenity of spirit. “Bill’s” consistency has been proven many times, but the best example to be had is the fact that, whenever “Daisy” calls up anybody on the Bell phone the exchange girl invariably gives him regardness of the party he asks for. She certainly has his number. Curiosity demands that we see the Shamokin “Daisy” soon, but “Bill” consoles us with the promise that the lady in question will be here at our commencement, and present him with a bunch of — daisies of course. We look to “Daisy” to duplicate Mr. Knerr’s record in the near future. “Clawrence” is very fond of fiction and reads all the latest, that he may pursue the methods of Chambers’ and Mac. Grath’s heroes in his own love affairs. His artistic sense is developed to such a degree that it compels his regular attendance at the Friday matinees at the Lyric. “Daisy” abhors tobacco and you never see him “S(ha)mokin.” We are forced to part company with “Daisy” more often than the regulation college calendar allows, but then we know that he has answered the silent call of the “Daisy” in the highlands of his native village.

He entered Muhlenberg full of high aspirations, a few of which were to earn his numerals, make the Glee Club, learn all he could about English, and finally become a successful journalist. It takes all types of people to make a world, and Conrad is one of the types a psycholo- gist would analyze as having a dark, rapid, strong temperament, hence the name “Moody”. H e is ordinarily of a very genial disposition, but at times full of “Quips and Cranks.” He is quite serious minded, and enters into all he undertakes with a strong resolve to make it a suc- cess. As a student he works conscientiously, and stands high among his. classmates. “Con” has the following philosophy of education: “Education makes a good man better and a bad man worse; so here goes for better or worse.” Of course the best of people have their faults, so has “Con”. One of these is his love of arguing with “Hap” Nenow about the merits of Easton as compared with those of Phil- lpsburg. Much zest has been added to our meals through this subject. Conrad’s relations with the fair sex are an unknown quantity to us; but we know that he is neither shy nor bashful. If by chance you should meet this dark youth, you will recognize him by a peculiar habit of looking at his shoes, after which he emits a sound something like he, — he, — he, — and then some sarcasm follows. Indeed, a favorite expression of greeting him is “nice sarcasm Seegers.” We dare not forget to mention Conrad’s love for punning, and his ability in “get- ting off” near jokes. He is in his best mood when reclining in his easy chair, exhaling fumes from his calabash pipe and fingering on his mandolin. In spite of all his human faults, we must say that “Con” has been a valuable addition to our class, and we have always found him to be one of our most jovial classmates. In making a prophesy for his future, we feel confident in saying, from the ability he has shown us, that he will be crowned with the wreaths of success in whatever work he undertakes.

Teaching. 1 he Kutztowri trolley comes and goes and so does Stauffer. He hails from the Lehigh Valley, more precisely from Alburtis. He was welcomed into our class as an export from 1912, and he claims he has struck the right class at last and will stick. He was one of the Allentown Prep, men and was a prominent character at that institution. We regret that he has never used his scientific brains along any athletic lines, but he is an ardent admirer and supporter of all athletics. Latest reports, however, have it that he will in the near future coach the Alburtis High School football team. As a lady’s man, it can be said to “Steesie’s” credit that he holds his own admirably. He, at times, is quite a sly performer, and we often wonder why our friend from Alburtis spends so many nights in Allentown at his Aunt’s home, while his parents are awaiting his return home with much expectancy. He often uses his team at home and takes moonlight rides with his fairy queen. Stauffer is also a bell-boy of distinction, and made a howling success at the Delaware Water Gap House last summer. He tells us that his was the opportunity of “running the place” next summer, but he did not wish to assume the responsibility. His ability as a sales- man is also of a rare kind. This exceptional quality was acquired by persistent effort at Bowen’s and Merlow’s. These facts are all evidences of the fact that “Steesie” is an enterprising fel- low, and that he is a man of many and varied experiences. “Steesie” is also one of the basement sports and took great delight last yeai in making the poor innocent Fresh clean out the dirt which he made in the locker rooms. Quintin is a consistent and earnest student, and promises to be a mathematician of note. He can often be seen searching into the hidden mysteries of chemistry. We predict for Quintin a future of un- heralded success. 1 Page Sixty-eight CARL G. TOEBKE BROOKLYN, N. Y. “Toeb” “ Fearless minds climb soonest unto crowns.” “ Light burdens, long borne, grow heavy.” Born at Brooklyn, N. Y., February 23, 1884. Pre- pared at Allentown Prep.

Empire State Club. Photographer on ClARLA Staff. Were anyone to ask you what man in college was the most generally respected, ten to one the answer would be the name placed at the head of this biography. Seriousness of purpose personified, he is the hardest trainer on the track team (of which he is captain), the most earn- est worker on the M. C. A. cabinet, and the steadiest plugger in scholastic work. All of this can be said, and yet no one ever characterizes him as a grind. Truly, “he is an honourable” personage. Again “ Toeb” is going to Mount Airy, or, at any rate, to some seminary. As we have ample opportunity to observe, this determination usually has one of three effects on a man. First, the “carpe diem” spirit is brought into the poor unfortunate’s life, or a painful super- saintliness is likely to be engendered. The third class (which is the rule — thanks awfully) takes life as it comes, and without reminding the world that “we are going to be ministers, and we must take every step, read every book, even eat every of Granny’s pie with that noble end in view.” Needless to say Toebke belongs to the class which we all like and ad- mire, and not to the self-conscious first or second types of embryo divineness; not that he is not as serious in this, his life work, as in other things, but it is in an unassuming and quiet way. There is another side to this man. If you look at him, and note his 2x4 proportions, the last thing you would connect him with would be athletics. Yet you can see depicted on this page one of the most valuable track men in college. We have said that he was captain, but we did not say athletically speaking that Toebke is a self-made man. Slow as the proverbial stage-coach, hard work has gained for him the name of being the fastest (track) man at Muh- lenberg, and an assortment of trophies in his room proves that there is something in the name. Now for a prediction of the future of “Carl dear,” as the cleaning (?) committee calls him. He has spoken to one skirt during his course. Consequently the chances are in favor of a single existence. A fairly safe prophecy would be: “To pursue the duties of a Brook- lyn congregation with all the energy and zeal that he has manifested in his work on the track at Muhlenberg.” Page Sixty-nine HENRY A. WACKER NEW YORK CITY “Heinrich, " ’ “New York” “ For every why, he had a wherefore “ 7 here ' s no place like home, when that home is New York. " Born September 20, 1890, in New York City.

Care-free and generous to a fault, our Gotham representative soon became a popular favorite at college. Realizing that he could shine at only two branches of college life, he decided to let lessons take their course and to apply himself entirely to athletics and society. In the latter, he has achieved quite an enviable reputation, being surpassed by very few in the art of “fussing.” But it is as an athlete that Henry shines most brilliantly. Basketball experts predict a won- derful future for him; his gold watch reminds you of his sterling worth on the relay team; but his chief claim to glory lies in the fact that he crossed F. M.’s go al line for the first time in the history of our athletic relations with the Reformed institution. He is a walking encyclopedia on athletics; his dissertations on how the Giants were robbed of a pennant and a world’s championship always attract an interested, if an unsympathetic audience. His loyalty to his native city frequently involves him in heated arguments with Philadelphians as to the rela- tive merits of the two cities. In fact nothing is liked better by him than a lengthy discussion on any up-to-date topic, from football to woman suffrage. Practical jokes are another hobby of this ingenious New Yorker. Many a chap has had occasion to regret the fact that Wacker has such great originality in his witticisms. By hook or crook, Wacker has managed to keep his head above water, and after graduation his trip to the Fatherland will fully prepare him for his missionary work among the Filipinos. Page Seventy JOHN J. WENNER FOGELSVILLE, PA. “Chicky” " Last but not least.” ”Who so findeth a rvife, findeth a good thing.” Born at Walbert’s, Pa., October 10, 1888.

Perkiomen Club Woodro Wilson Club. Vice President. Lutheran. Teaching. This is “Chicky,” a character well known for his shortness in stature, but greatness in ability. Since his name stands last on the class roll, he was never called on to recite in his- tory during his Sophomore year. This fact has often grieved our industrious friend, for he figures that at least 1 ,000 hours which he spent in studying historical problems were wasted. Wenner, however, is a bright student and a hard worker, as is evidenced by the fact that he graduated from Perkiomen with honors. “Johnny” came to college with the express purpose of studying hard, but the fairer sex soon exercised a large control over him ; rumor has it that he took belief in that scriptural pro- verb, “Who so findeth a wife, findeth a good thing.” It would be unfair to take this matter up for dissemination, as it is only a rumor and is not supported by the press, and we do not wish to disclose a second “criminal.” As a classmate, “Chicky” is loved by all. He has a very gentle and intrepid disposition. Wenner, as is the general rule with most great men, comes from the country. This, no doubt, accounts for the fact that he is so much interested in nature. He loves to roam over hill and dale, and gather botany specimens, but of all flowers there is none more pleasing to him than a Johnny-jump-up. This man also has already achieved great success as pedagogue. For three years he had charge of a flock of youngsters and gave to them words of advice and wisdom. After gradu- ation, he expects to follow teaching as his chosen profression. We wish him success. Page Seventy-one FMkV 7 J Chester F. Abbett -------- Brooklyn, N. Y Left College Nov. I, 1909.

Does 1914 have a record of past events that makes history? It does. Should these events be treated with deep respect and handled with great care? They should. In proof of the above, the following: On the opening day of college we, as a class, did all in our power to alleviate to some extent that lurking, morbid, dread which we read on the faces of the Freshies. We sincerely regret to say that we were unsuccessful in our endeavors. That night our souls were stirred with admiration to see the way in which they assisted the police in patrolling the streets of Allen- town, but we would suggest that they might have spent the time just as profitably in bed — where all little ones should be after dark — as far as pertains to their tearing down our posters. It is unkind to hit a man when he is down, thus we shall barely mention the bowl-fight with a score of 20-1 3; the 27-0 football game, and that pathetic little attempt called the fresh- man poster night. For some unaccountable reason the mention of posters brings up the word scrubbing. Honor to whom honor is due — they certainly made a neat, clean job of the dorms, and we feel that the city authorities should extend a vote of thanks to them for the scrupulous care with which they scoured the city parks. After the opening festivities, we learned to know our new brethren better, and were able to give a word of advice here or a suggestion there as to a loud sock; an absence of dome-piece or some other such offence, which all little tots are accustomed to make. With all our care- ful guidance, however, there seemed to be a deplorable lack of those high qualities which go to make an upper classman. Perhaps they lacked proper food, or was it exercise? We on a dark, damp, dreary, drizzling night ministered food — yes, strong food, and provided exercise. There is a law of cause and effect. For the effect of the above, your attention is called to a short buried article in the Morning Call of October 31, 1911. It might here be mentioned that the events are there set forth by a master hand — and all is well that ends well. Each year a calendar appears. Did you see the college calendar for 1912? If you did — enough said ; if you didn’t — there is a duty you really owe to yourself. Why, yes, football programs? At the F. M. game they were the classiest programs you ever saw. It helped the A. A. “For there’s always fair feather, when good fellows get together.” Now, we won t men- tion the “stein,” but we can never forget the sport we had at our Feast and Card Party. And there is more, lots more coming. We may be fooling ourselves, and we may not, but 1914 believes that she is a vital factor in the life of Muhlenberg. Take her out of football — some hole? Take her out of track, of basketball, of all athletics, what would be the effect? In glee club, in literary work, in all the many activities we are trying to be felt; to make Muhlenberg believe that she couldn t do without us. We are here stronger than ever, and boosting harder than ever for the glory of our Alma Mater — Greater Muhlenberg. HISTORIAN. J age Seventy-six THE SOPHOMORE CLASS Sophomore Statistics Elmer H.

Shortly after their arrival there were occa- sions which demanded their attention; not as individuals, but as a class. While they were becoming acquainted with each other and with the college of their choice, these occasions came. Fortunately, they were organized in due time and heard enough of con- ditions and customs to enjoy the excitements of “poster night.” With the dawn of the fol- lowing day, they awoke as an active class of Muhlenberg College. Although this advent was not a noisy one; or one that attracted particular attention, yet, to say the least, the Sopho- more class realized that they were to contend with, worthy rivals. In the bowl-fight with the Sophs, the Freshmen dnplayed real class spirit. They put up a grand fight from the s tart to the finish. Here it might be stated that the Freshmen did not know the plans and rules of battle, yet they held their own in the first half. It was only the experience of the Sophs or rather their knowledge of the inner parts of the game, that enabled them to forge ahead in the second half and win in spite of the spirited scrapping of the Fresh- men. Paying little attention to class rivalry during the week following the fight, the Freshmen apprised themselves to their new home and work. They did not realize that quietness was keeping some of their fellow-students away from their work. Naturally you want this to be ex- plained. h ou know that quietness never creates a disturbance, but you also know that it is very apt to cause anxiety. In this case it must have been the latter, for reports accuse the Sophs of having watched the city very closely lest there be some public announcements made concerning their class. If this was the case, and we believe it was, the Freshmen made such announcements amid all this anxiety and vigilance on the part of the Sophs. They must have done so some dark night, when the sentinels had fallen asleep. Football now attracted the attention of the Freshmen. They were to play their part in athletics, as well as in class rivalry. Realizing this they sent seven men upon the gridiron, two of which proved to be of varsity calibre. The Freshmen gave their Alma Mater a varsity quaterback, who piloted our team through a most successful season. Since our last football season was the most successful one we’ve ever had, the Freshmen pride themselves in the fact that they have been able to give their assistance in conquering their rivals. Football, however, is not the only activity in which the Freshmen have played a splendid part. Seven Freshmen represent their class on the Glee Club. “That’s going some.” The services of the Freshmen to the Glee Club are a. valuable asset. Along literary lines the Freshmen have done well. They are taking active parts in the Literary Societies, and their work has been of such a standard that it has helped to enliven the interests of both societies. In whatever activities the Freshmen have taken part, they have done their duty. All serv- ices rendered their Alma Mater were rendered willingly. They took pride in whatever they did. They are willing to do more, and they promise to be worthy exponents of any movement that will further the interests of their Alma Mater.

Hr life fr- IiCflflK A i Wgi The Student Council T HE first steps toward student government were taken in the fall of 1910, when a pro- visional constitution was drawn up by a committee appointed from the various classes. 1 his met with the hearty approval of all concerned, students, faculty, and trustees, and the constitution became effective at once. Early in October the first Student Council was elected and began to bring about many changes immediately. Student government at Muhlenberg has come to stay, and with it stays also certain re- sponsibilities resting upon every student. The Student Council is by no means an executive body, but rather an advisory board or student court of last resort in case of a tangled situation. The students must govern themselves; the business of the Council is to suggest, not to enforce. Hence we all have a great responsibility resting upon each of us, the settling of a standard for ourselves and our fellows. 1 he entire student body stands back of the Student Council in an endeavor to develop Muhlenberg College materially, intellectually, and spiritually.

STUDENT COUNCIL taBMY SOCIETIES f VVRiGM " MILA History Euterpea Literary Society E U T ERPEA has always been one of the best and grandest educational auxiliaries of our fair Muhlenberg. She has taken her name from one of the nine Muses, and has always upheld it with much pride and dignity. Euterpea’s age is identical with the age of our institution, forty-four years having elapsed, since her organization. 1 he aim of Euterpea has always been to develop such talent as her members may possess, to cultivate a taste for good literature and to make a general improvement of each member. Ever keeping in view this aim and purpose, Euterpea has succeeded in inspiring loyalty, faith- fulness and truth into her members. I he achievements of the past year, without any doubt, overshadow those of any one previous. 1 he social advantages that are offered by Euterpea are also of great importance. Semi- annual receptions are given which prove of great value to both old and new members. The society meetings are now held every Wednesday morning. At these meetings, spe- cial stress is laid on orations, debates, and impromptu speeches. Perseverance and applica- tion are virtues not unknown to the young orators of Euterpea. Euterpea has her own library, consisting of over three thousand volumes. Among these works are the choicest selections on history, biography, fiction, and theology. To further re- plenish her already splendid library, one hundred dollars have been appropriated during the past year to secure books of the most excellent standards. Euterpea’s members number sixty-four, of which number twenty- three are the talented members of the present Freshman class. Euterpea ever prizes quality, as is again evidenced by the fact that one of her members received first honor at the last commencement, and for the past three years, she can claim the Editor-in-Chief of the Ciarla. In all the literary work and organizations of college, loyal sons of Euterpea have taken a prominent part, and Euterpea has always held her own. Her colors are “Blue and Gold ” In taking a retrospect, she has ample reason to be proud. May she ever by her deeds do honor to herself, and do nothing that will tarnish her fair name and motto, “Watch and Advance.” In keeping with her motto is her past history. May her future be even brighter. HISTORIAN.

Yiengst Page Ninety-six j rrit tt J‘Jtn History of Sophronia Literary Society F ORTY-FIVE years ago the foundations of the Sophronia Literary Society were made. Sophronia was organized by men who realized the necessity of literary work, and who were sensible of the fact that men who possess a college training are at all times liable to be called upon to impart their knowledge to others. Sophronia has again enjoyed a year of great but not unusual prosperity. That the work done in the society is beneficial to her members is clearly shown by what her men have again achieved during the past year. Three out of the four honor men of the last graduating class were members of Sophronia. She can also pride herself in the fact that two of her members captured all of the prizes in the Junior Oratorical Contest, and more than that; Muhlenberg’s representatives in the Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest for the past two years are numbered among her members. The Historian is glad to note here in Sophronia’s history that Muhlen- berg’s representative won second prize in the contest last year. She may well feel proud of her past, and by the continuation of the interest and activity of the members at the present time, indications for the future are that even the past may be over- shadowed. As her name implies, Sophronia consists of men whose literary ability is the light and pride of the institution ; men who have erected living monuments for themselves by their achievements in the literary world. There are now forty members in the society who support the “White and Blue,” and who are ever mindful of her motto, “The End Crowns the Work.” Her library which consists of about twenty-five hundred volumes of science, history, travel, biography, and fiction is also a credit to her ; since her books are always selected with the great- est care, and therefore are only of the most excellent standards. The meetings during the present year have all been well attended, and great interest was always manifested in the rendition of the program. True to the tradition that Sophronia al- ways acquires new men of quality, she has had an influx of men who are very active in the support of Sophronia. There is no doubt but that her future will be in safe hands. Page Ninety-seven Sophronia Literary Society MOTTO — “The End Crowns the Work” Colors — White and Blue First Term Walter W.

We felt the two-fold need of it, both to keep us in touch with other colleges, and to supply for some live organization to fill the place which the Frankean So- ciety was so manifestly unable to fill. At the close of last year the Cabinet was organized. The Cabinet was composed of the officers of the association and the chairmen of the committees. The Cabinet met with the earn- est co-operation of President Haas and other members of the faculty. I hus much more good has resulted than would have resulted without such co-operation. Rev. Frank Buchman, ' 99, spent the week of November 20th among us, and left behind him a large share of that enthusiasm which has achieved such wonderful results at State Col- lege. Activity was redoubled and inspiring addresses were delivered by such men as Mr. Schef- felin. Dr. Beuermeyer and Rev. Hering, 07. It was found necessary to increase the num- bers of the original Cabinet by the addition of Messrs. Esser 13, P. Loser 13, and Croutha- mel ’ 1 4. Just when the skies were rosiest a bombshell was exploded which caused consternation in the ranks of the faithful. The trustees, in accordance with the general policy of the Lutheran Church to hold aloof from all such organizations, decided at their January meeting that we must discontinue the Y. M. C. A. with its affiliation with other colleges and become simply the so- ciety known as the Christian Association of Muhlenberg College. Although somewhat of a set- back to our hitherto very satisfactory progress, this injunction only gave us free rein for the carry- ing out of all original ideas unhampered by association with the national collegiate organizations. What has the Christian Association done for our Alma Mater you may ask. In the first place, it has provided something which has long been lacking — a dace where fellows can come together to discuss problems of vital importance freely, anu with the knowledge thus gained be better fitted for his life-work. Secondly, we have been given the opportunity to hear some very capable and eloquent speakers in discussions upon various phases of activity in the workings of practical, Twentieth Century Christianity, an education not found in text books. Since it has accomplished so much in its brief existence, who dare prophesy what will be the limits of the Association’s activity? Let us all help to make it one of the many institutions at Muhlenberg of which we can all be justly proud. M. C. A. CABINET President ------- Paul H. Krauss, ’ 1 2 Vice President -----. J.

It at once grew popular and steadily improved, both in size and literary excellence. A radical departure from traditional ideas was made by the editorial staffs during the past collegiate year. By an active campaign among the alumni their sense of loyalty to their Alma Mater was aroused and the enthusiastic response from all enabled the staffs to realize a long cherished dream — that of being able to publish a college monthly which would be truly rep- resentative of all phases of life at Muhlenberg. Through the financial aid thus obtained they were enabled to enlarge the scope of the paper, by adding new departments and inserting a greater number of cuts. When the students found that their efforts were beginning to be more and more appre- ciated, they took a much more active interest in their paper than ever before. Stories and other literary articles came pouring into the editor’s sanctum in ever increasing numbers, so that the old cry of “Material Wanted,” has at last been almost completely hushed. A college paper, then, to be a true mirror of college activity, must rely upon the enthusi- astic, unselfish co-operation of alumni and students. A beginning has been made, but only a beginning. Let every true son of old Muhlenberg get behind the wagon, and push our already excellent publication up to still greater heights of literary supremacy, aiming at that high ideal of perfection which is at the end of all honest effort.

For several years it stood dormant, but its present members are glad to say that it is still alive and in good working order. The purpose of the Press Club is to acquaint the outside world with what Muhlenberg is doing in athletics, in social and in religious activities, through the medium of the newspapers. Each member of the club is given some special field of work, and each one reports to a different paper. The club owes the college an apology for the scarcity of material appearing in the Philadelphia papers, which, however, is not altogether the fault of the club, as it is very difficult to get into connection with the Associate Press, which controls all the foreign papers. The Philadelphia papers also have their regular correspondents in Allentown, who often neg- lect to publish news received from the club. The club is composed of men who are catering to experience along journalistic lines, and it elects its own members. It is the sincere desire and wish of the club to make greater efforts this year to have Muhlenberg notes appear oftener in both the Allentown and Philadelphia papers. With this end in view the club should have the assistance of every loyal Muhlenberg man.

' 95 Page One Hundred Nine THE GLEE CLUB The Glee Club, Season 1911-1912 T HANKS to the skillful supervision of Dr. Marks, thanks to the unceasing and strenu- ous efforts of Leader “Bill” Katz, and thanks to the spirit of co-operation generally pre- valent among the members of the Club — the Muhlenberg College Glee Club of 1911- 1912 by no means lowered that organization’s high standard. At the beginning of the season even more than the proverbial “hard luck” seemed bent upon discouraging the at- tempts to wh ip the club into shape. “Kid” Miller, the great, the breezy, the laugh-producer, and Eberts, ’ll, the soloist, members of last year’s club, were sadly missed. Stringent train- ing rules made it hard to get in practices, although our season started early. To cap the climax the schedule was the hardest to arrange of any series of engagements filled by the Club in the past four years; but the Club must have had some truth or some rubber in it, for it rose — and Muhlenberg certainly has had no reason to blush for its musical representation. The programme, to speak very originally, was varied, and, as a rule, well rendered. The harmony (chance here for the college wit to spring a joke) amongst the members was ex- cellent. The trips were most enjoyable, and as a general rule — in fact with two exceptions — - the audiences were large and responsive. From all of which a bright person can gather that the Glee Club was a success. The new men showed up well, and if all are back next year they should be a mighty valuable addition to the “old guard” nucleus around which the Club will be built. With fond recollections of the successes of the past season, here’s hoping that the future may be even brighter. The following is the itinerary of the Club in 1912: ITINERARY Jan. 6 - 1 amaqua. Pa.

Reese A RE you a pessimist or an optimist? Answer us this question: What is the future of our athletics at Muhlenberg? By athletics we mean both the outdoor sports and the physical training in the “gym”. Our football record was brilliant. The prospects for track are bright. More interest with much better results was secured in our “gym” work than ever before. The reason for this is that we secured a man to take charge of the department who is with us every day in the year, and thus the boys are continually under his influence; can continually go to him for information and advice, and they receive not only what they ask for, but encouragement as well. THE PEOPLE OF ALLENTOWN have never taken the interest they are taking now in our athletic work. Two gentlemen gave twenty-five dollars ($25.00) each for every game won the last season. This amounted to two hundred and fifty dollars ($250.00). THE ALUMNI never made so many inquiries or were so solicitous about our success as last fall. THE FACULTY and the BOARD OF TRUSTEES never displayed the in- terest and OUR STUDENT BODY never supported the team as enthusiastically as in the season just closed. All of the above classes are beginning to see that football is the one activity that is uniting our scattered forces in one army on whose banner is inscribed the legend: WE ARE GOING TO WORK. WE ARE GOING TO STRIVE TO MAKE OUR MUH- LENBERG THE GREATEST SMALL COLLEGE IN THE LAND. A word of ap- preciation is due, at this point, to MR. O. F. BERNHEIM, the Treasurer of the Association, through whose energetic and efficient management the college store, which is run by him for the benefit of the Athletic Association, is doing such great things. With the encouragement mentioned above the Athletic Association is going to undertake the following: (1) erect a REFECTORY, something the college has long needed. They have borrowed ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) through the kindness of the Board of Trus- tees who endorsed the note for the same. (2) ERECT A FENCE around the gridiron. This is absolutely needed and its success is assured, as over one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) has been subscribed, the student body subscribing three hundred and fifty dollars ($350.00). (3). All being well VARSITY BASKETBALL will be revived next winter. There is ma- terial in the college for a good team. We are doing everything to help ourselves and others are coming to our assistance. We have a hard schedule next fall and the changes in the rules, which place a premium on weight will militate against us. But we are going to have a good team and expect to make a more brilliant record than last season. The do or die spirit is here, and that, coupled with good coaching, is going to give us the victory. Our future ap- pears to me most bright. We are now standing on the threshold of a greater era. Our climb has been hard, our road rough and rugged, but we have reached such an altitude, that now we see the sun streaking the peaks of the eastern hills with gold. Next fall we expect to reach the very summit and bask in the full effulgence of his light. Having once reached that height, all our energies will be bent to maintain the height we have attained. And we CAN do it. By this time, are you a pessimist or an optimist? Page One Fourteen COACH THOMAS KELLY T HOMAS KELLY — a name to conjure with when football is spoken of. A victorious team the first season! No stars were a hand last fall; the men had never been drilled in the new game but were mostly raw recruits. Some thought the clouds hung low for a disastrous season. The man appeared, however, who could cope with the situation. There are three qualities every athlete must possess: (1) proper mental attitude; (2) physical fitness and knowledge of the game; (3) unified spirit for the success of the team. As to the mental attitude — the players caught the working spirit of the coach, caught a spark from the fire of his energy and enthusiasm, caught a living cell of football life from his LIVING football life. The result — a calm, serene, cheerful, optimistic, fight to the finish attitude of mind, that always looked toward victory and never turned the back on the thought of defeat. The players were possessed of self-confidence, not of over-confidence. As to physical fitness — That all were in superb physical conditon and knew the game the Lranklin and Marshall contest demonstrated. Did you ever take part in our great college sport? Do you remember the minor injuries you received? Did you ever have a coach enter your room every two hours during the night to care for the injured part, he rising from a warm bed and crossing the enclosure of the dormitory quadrangle to get to it? That is just what our coach did last fall. Is it any wonder our men were in such fine physical condition? As to a unified spirit — At times it was necessary to give attention to several of the squad who thought they knew as much as the coach and who continually endeavored to “kick over the traces.” That the men played as a machine with practically no individual work further demonstrated that his ability in handling obstreperous players was equal to that of his skill “at the game.” H is whole attitude was that of kindness and consideration for his men ; a desire to give them his best and let victory take care of itself. Victory came! Do you wonder why we say “Kelly — a name to conjure with?” We are sure you will join with us in giving a long, loud, lusty cheer for Kelly — the coach peerless.

This year the addi- tion was made which allowed her fair name to step up from her former oblivion into prominence. As game after game was played, rung after rung was added to this growing ladder of football fame. No other result was possible than that this should be Muhlenberg’s big- gest football year. We started the year with most of In addition the team was working under a new coach and under a new system which resulted in the following enviable record. Although the first game was a defeat, it was a virtual victory for Muhlenberg. It was not to be expected that our lighter team could hope to scope successfully with the Carlisle Varsity. All that was looked for from our warriors was an exhibition of ' pep and sand” and in this the coach was not disappointed. The “Indians” were able to score but one touch down in the first quarter, because of the pluck and well fought defence of our varsity. This determination seemed to arouse the Carlisle team and they were able to score three touchdowns in the second quarter. In the third quarter the “Indians” counted two more. This advance was stopped in the fourth quarter, when our varsity kept their dusky opponents from crossing their goal line. In con- sidering the odds against us in this game, the Muhlenberg supporters felt very happy. They realized that the team they were supporting was full of grit and determination, and that it would bring great glories to its Alma Mater. In our next game, which was played in New York City against the New York Univer- sity team, there was even greater exhibition of pluck. It seemed as if Jupiter Pluvius had adopted us, because on this day as well as in the Carlisle game he reigned (rained) in all his might, converting the field into a veritable mud puddle. No greater tribute can be paid to our team as it played in this game than was given by the New York Herald: “New York’s limited season of college football was inaugurated yesterday afternoon with a victory of the N. Y. U. eleven. Although victorious, none realized more than did the local men that Dame Fortune had been decidedly kind to them.” This game was largely an exhibition of punting in which Bixler had a decided advantage over the N. Y. U. man. Although the team was patched up due to injuries received in the Carlisle game, it gave an exhibition of grit and nerve, and the team work, which resulted from good coaching, was beginning to reveal itself. The first game at home was played on Oct. 14th against Williamson Trade School. This team came to our camp with a reputation. They had played Delaware to a 0-0 score, and Dela- ware had in turn held Swarthmore to a like score. Alas, their reputation vanished when it met the well disciplined team work and determination of our team. The first score was made about ninety seconds after the referee’s whistle had sounded for the start of the game. Suffice it to say that the team showed the possibilities which its supporters looked for and gave the student body many opportunities to cheer lustily. The use of the forward pass and good team work characterized this game. Again accompanied by Jupiter Pluvius the team journeyed to Gettysburg to play the first game with our sister institution since 1907. Good playing was impossible on this day, because of the abundance of mud on the Gettysburg field. Gettysburg “was looking forward to a Page One Twenty -three last year’s Varsity on the gridiron. MUHLENBERG 15; DELAWARE O THE BLANKETS THE BUCKNEI.L GAME good practice game” as one of their men told Coach Kelly, not knowing to whom he was talking; and they confidently expected to overturn our apple-cart, but the fates willed it other- wise. The ball hardly moved from the middle of the field, due to the even balance in the ability of both teams. The muddy field prevented us from using the forward pass and other open plays. Gettysburg was lucky enough, however, to get one field goal, which saved the day for our opponents. The feature of the game was the defensive work of Skean and our Achilles like Captain Savacool. Our second home game was played with Delaware College on Oct. 28th. Delaware came with the avowed intention of squaring up two defeats in track and one on the gridiron, but these intentions were scattered like chaff before the wind. Their intentions can best be illus- trated by a statement made by their coach to Prof. Reese: “Yes, sir, I have one peach of a team, and if we lose, you have a hummer; but we’ll beat you 30-0.” Remembering the 0-0 score of the Delaware-Swarthmore game our Varsity was prepared for a good battle. The game was hard fought from beginning to end. The first scoring was made in the second quar- ter, when a Delaware man blocked an attempted goal and Nenow fell on the ball behind the Delaware line for a touchdown. From this time on, the Muhlenberg machine worked beauti- fully, and by good plunging by Scott and Flexer the ball was placed on the 25-yard line in the third quarter from which position Reisner kicked a pretty field goal. In the last quarter backfield plunges took the ball over Delaware’s line again, and Reisner kicked the goal. Thus, according to Coach McAvoy, Muhlenberg proved to be a hummer and she kept up this reputa- tion in the subsequent games. In this game the spectators saw a wonderful stride developed in the team work of the Varsity since the Williamson game, and the confidence of victory over F. M. was strengthened. Lebanon Valley and another victory for the Cardinal and Gray followed the Delaware game. The score was 39-0. It might have been 69-0, if the scrubs had not been given a chance in the last quarter. To tell how each touchdown was made would be too much of a repetition of touchdowns, etc. — ad 00. The pluck shown by the Lebanon Valley team, which was evident up to the last minute deserves mention. This game gave our Varsity the proper impetus for its big game the following Saturday — F. M. MUHLENBERG 9— F. M. 0 If one of the learned dignitaries from a Mediaeval College could have visited our campus during the week before the F. M. game, he would have shrieked with terror at the con- tinual noise and excitement which dominated the air. Every energy was bent towards wiping out the defeats of the preceding three years. The night before the game a smoker was held. “Mai” Gross, Prof. Reese, Mr. Stuart, Rev Brooks, District Attorney Rupp and other well known men of the city, members of the Faculty, and Alumni, were present and increased the high hopes of victory by enthusiastic and inspiring speeches. While this was going on the mem- bers of the Varsity squad were enjoying a tally-ho ride until they became sleepy. It seemed as if Jupiter Pluvius had neglected his adopted warriors, for on the day for the game, Nov. 1 1, the weather was clear and snappy, not a rain cloud was in sight. The ideal weather and the previous successes of the Muhlenberg team brought the largest crowd on rec- ord to the game. Friends and Alumni of both institutions, interested in their respective teams, were present from far and near, and Milady was resplendent in autumn costume and bedecked with a chrysanthemum or a rose. Each side was represented by a band and an immense cheer- ing squad which helped to enliven the affair. Amid this noble gathering, with the bands playing and the cheering squads lustily ex- panding their voices, the Blue and White and the Cardinal and Gray bedecked warriors rushed upon the gridiron, like gladiators going into the arena. Captain Bridenbaugh of F. M. Page One T n enl )-five Muhlenberg vs. F. and M. BRIDENBAUGH LOSING TEN YARDS won the toss and Reisner kicked off against the wind; the game was on. On the first play Muhlenberg was penalized 1 5 yards for holding. Then Bridenbaugh, smiling confidently, sig- naled for a wide end run, the play which had won three victories for F. M. in the preceeding years. When the Blue and White captain had fallen to the ground he had lost 1 5 yards. Dazed at this, he tried Jaeger around the other end, but he shared the same fate and was stopped 5 yards further away from the desired goal. That crafty Ulysses from the west — Coach Kelly — had the proper counter play to break up F. M.’s strongest play; his tackles were not blocked in as they were in former years. At this point Muhlenberg was again penal- ized 1 5 yards for holding. Bridenbaugh again failed on an end run, Flexer stopping him. Bridenbaugh then punted 60 yards to Blackburn. On three attempts Muhlenberg only ad- vanced the ball 8 yards, and the ball went over to F. M., who in turn lost 5 yards on the next three plays and Muhlenberg again got the ball. Reisner punted out of bounds on the vis- itor’s 40-yard line. After two attempts at end runs with the usual result of losses, Briden- baugh kicked to Blackburn. Flexer ripped and snorted through F. M.’s line for 7 yards. Scott added three more. Muhlenberg was penalized for holding. Reisner then punted and the period ended with F. M. in possession of the ball on their 43-yard line. In the second period Bridenbaugh again lost 1 0 yards on an attempted end run. Black- burn recovered the punt, after he had fumbled it. Backfield plunges took the ball to F. M.’s 40-yard line. Bixler made 1 0 yards more. A forward pass to Blackburn proved successful, and it was our ball on the 20-yard line. Reisner failed at a field goal. F. M.’s ball. They kicked and we were forced to return it. Pontius and Wood made 30 yards through the line and around the end. Then we held them and then IT HAPPENED. REISNER PLACED HIS PUNT BEAUTIFULLY TO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE FIELD, AND WACKER, PASSING THE F. M. BACKS, GRASPED THE PIGSKIN AND RAN ACROSS THE GOAL LINE FAST ENOUGH TO HAVE BEATEN MAR- ATHON. Then Muhlenberg’s frenzied supporters broke loose; automobile horns tooted and 2,000 Muhlenberg supporters cheered themselves hoarse. Reisner kicked the goal making the score Muhlenberg 6, F. M. 0. F. M. then kicked off to Blackburn on the 10-yard line. After two attempts to advance the ball, Reisner kicked out of bounds on F. M.’s 53- yard line. Katz then stopped three plays in succession, forcing the visitors to kick. On the second play, Reisner punted to Bridenbaugh who was thrown in his tracks by Flexer. The quarter ended with the ball in mid field. In the third period both teams put forth their hardest effort. After several exchanges of punts, F. M. got the ball to our 3-yard line. Then Muhlenberg’s grit and determination had its greatest test. Pontius hit left guard and lost a yard. He tried again and Scott hurled him back for another yard. Wood then tried, but Blackburn assisted the linesmen and F. M. lost another yard. Our student body was singing the Alma Mater all through this gruelling test. Bixler then kicked the ball out of danger. Later in this period, F. M. again reached the 5-yard line, but Blackburn recovered a forward pass and prevented a score. This ended the quarter. In the last period E. Loser replaced Skean, and at once made 5 yards. Several punts were exchanged and then Wacker recovered an onside kick on F. M.’s 20-yard line. Here Reisner kicked a field goal, Blackburn holding the ball. Score: Muhlenberg 9, F. M. 0. Blackburn caught the kick-off on the 1 0-yard line. Scott then fumbled, but Flexer recov- ered the ball. Loser and Blackburn then attempted to advance the ball but failed. A series of exchanged punts were made by both sides, and a number of line plunges with indifferent suc- cess and the game ended with the ball on F. M.’s 35-yard line. The features of the game were the grit and splendid display of team work. The sterling defensive work of Scott, Flexer and Katz deserve mention, while the work of the ends, the punting of Bixler and the handling Page One T rventy-seven THE F. M. GAME of punts by Blackburn was excellent. After the game the students and admirers carried the victorious team and coach off the field. In rejoicing over our victory, we must not forget that F. M. also played a magnificent game, and at times were within the danger limit. But at these times Muhlenberg proved equal to the occasion. After the game, “celebration” was the password. It began by the whole student body marching to the Centre Square, where oratory flowed in abundance. Henry Wacker, the hero of the game, had won the same place in the hearts of the friends of Muhlenberg that Frank Baker held in the hearts of the “Athletic fans.” He entered the game as a substitute in place of Nenow, whose ribs had been fractured in practice during the week, and he went out of the game covered with glory. The evening after the game an informal banquet was held in the Allen Cafe, where the victory was celebrated in song and speeches by members of the faculty, alumni, and the team that DID IT. Fully I 50 students, friends, and alumni were present and enthusiasm reached a high pitch. Sunday passed rather peacefully, but on Monday the celebration spirit was re- vived. All classes were cancelled and a big bonfire was scheduled. Six teams were hauling crates, boxes, and wood of all descriptions, until by night the pyre which had been erected reached fifty feet in height. On this pyre the old dummy and an F. M. banner were offered up as sacrifices. Again “speechfying” by THE TEAM and THE COACH and Prof. Reese and John Sefing were in order. A large number of Allentown citizens appeared for the event, and it was evident that the Allentown papers spoke the truth when they said: “Al- lentown has never been so enthused over any athletic event.” Telegrams were received from alumni all over the country, and why shouldn’t they? For the first time in our history we de- feated F. M. The climax of the season was over and our team was somewhat stale when it met the strong Bucknell team. Every effort had been made to have the team at top notch for the F. M. game and the slight reverse in form was no more than could be expected. In the first two quarters our feared warriors were mentally asleep and Bucknell scored three touchdowns by beautifully executed forward passes and trick formations. In the third quarter, Leisey, who was sent in to substitute, put some spirit into the team by making four splendid tackles in rapid succession. In the last two quarters the Varsity “came back” and got close enough for Reisner to score a field goal. The punting of Bixler and Topham were the features. Thanksgiving Day witnessed a return of the team to its old form, when it defeated a strong aggregation of Carlisle Reserves. The score was made possible largely through the ex- cellent following of the ball. Wacker tackled the Indian, who had received the punt, so hard that he dropped the ball and Groff fell on it for a touchdown. The Indians came back de- termined to score, but they were baffled at every turn, by the good team work of our Varsity. The large crowd was well pleased with the game. Thus the season of 1911 passed into history, the greatest season on record. It has served to give Muhlenberg a place in the football world, and will give the team in the years to come a record to overcome. The credit for the good work must go to the conscientious training of the Varsity men, the faithful service of the scrubs, without which the development of the Varsity would have been impossible, and the excellent coaching received from that “wise man from the west,” Thomas Kelly. The faithful crowds and the enthusiastic cheering showed the spirit that a good team can bring to our Alma Mater. The scenes in the F. M. game, when Bridenbaugh was out — Bridenbaugh at every move — will never be forgotten. May this spirit kindled by the bonfire and other celebrations of the year be a favorable omen for greater successes in the years to come. The toast of the town and the pride of our college are the coach and the team that “licked” Delaware and plucked the laurels from F. M. Page One T wenty-nine The Football “M” Men T HIS year Muhlenberg made a new departure in the awarding of the “M’s.” “Classy " cardinal sweaters initialed with gray “M’s” were awarded to all those gridiron warriors who were deemed worthy by Coach Kelly to possess one. A new precedent was also established this year in awarding the “M’s”, when it was decided that the Coach should have the privilege of naming the “M” men. This honor was bestowed upon fifteen men, who represent prowess and effort on the gridiron, and good, clean sportsmanlike spirit and consistent training. In commenting upon the “M” men, it does not seem fair to leave out the “Scrubs” who, while they did not re- ceive any recompense for their gruelling work, nevertheless by their faithful work made the “M” men possible. All honor and glory to the “Scrubs” because the Varsity is the result of their work. Professor Reese brought out a most excellent interpretation of the real value and significance of the gray “M ”, when he awarded them at the foot- ball banquet held at the Hotel Allen. He said: “This ‘M’ stands for three things, manliness, mercy, and memory.” Manliness is a requisite virtue for all good football players, and causes a man to dare and do all things cleanly and openly. Mercy is that quality in a man that Valler well describes: “Tigers have courage, and the rugged bear, But man alone can, whom he conquers, spare.” Memory is an eye that never sleeps, an ear that is always open, and it always keeps vigil with the past. 1 hus wide awake it never forgets its Alma Mater, nor its friends, nor duties learned theie; but it keeps on striving, working for the best interests of all that Alma Mater means. These three virtues combined are always seen in the gray “M and they stand for an ideal graduate of Muhlenberg College. The following men were awarded the Cardinal sweater and the Gray “M”: Paul H. Krauss, ’12 Jacob S. Savacool, ’12 Clarence M. Snyder, ’12 George W. Bixler, ’13 Earl Loser, ’13 William L. Katz, ’13 Henry A. Wacker, ’13 James R. Flexer, ’14 Elmer L. Leisey, ’14 Harry H.

Our Relay Team, composed of the same men that represented Muhlenberg last year, when the banner was brought back from Penn, journeyed to Philadelphia on Sat- urday, April 27, to try their best to win another banner. Although all the men had been training faithfully all spring, it was impossible for them to get into as good condition as the southern colleges in our class were able to, as we were handicapped by unfavorable weather conditions. The men, however, seemed to be faster than last year and they had the advantage of a year’s experience. The four relays were hotly contested on a track covered with mud and water by a steady downpour of rain early in the afternoon. The runners from St. John’s and Gallaudet, however, seemed to have the advantage and our team had to be satisfied with third place. The time was two seconds faster than last year, when the weather conditions were ideal. Page One Thirty-six Resume of the Track Season T HE track season of 1911 was a glorious one. For the first time in the track history of Muh- lenberg the Relay team came back from Penn victorious. This started the season in earnest, and the men were kept very busy by Coach Smith and Captain Reiter to work themselves into shape foi the three inter-collegiate meets. The men began train- ing during the winter months and this put them into good condition earlier than usual. The inter-class meet on May 6th, which was won by the Class of 1913, gave the Coach a line on his material and several promising men were found. 1 he big meet of the season was on May 1 3th, when Get- tysburg’s strong team journeyed to Allentown to face us for the first time in track. Our opponents were well prepared, but we made them “run some.” The meet was nip and tuck all the way through, and they were never far ahead of us. The finish of the “220” was the most exciting race of the season. The meet was any- body’s until the last event was over, when the honors were given to Gettysburg, having nosed us out by four points, the score being 65-61. Although defeated by a narrow margin, it was plainly demonstrated that we had some runners and jumpers and weight men, too. Our men went to Huntington on May 19, to try their best against Juniata College. All our men worked hard, but the Juniata boys went a little faster and defeated us 72-36. The heavy rain left the track in a bad condition, and as a result no records were broken. The last meet of the season was on May 30th, Decoration Day, when our friends from Newark were met on Delaware’s field. A nice crowd was present and saw Muhlenberg easily take the banner by the score of 84-42. Delaware succeeded in taking only two first places. Muhlenberg broke two of her track records, the Two-Mile Run and the Broad Jump. This victory over Delaware marked the close of the season, and all the “M” men and the rest of the squad de- serve most hearty congratulations and especially Coach Smith and Captain Reiter for their un- tiring efforts in producing such a good representative team. The present track season promises to be a most successful one. All the candidates for the team are training faithfully, as did the men during the football season, and laboring hard for the best interests of the team under the careful supervision of Coach Kelly. Most of last year’s “M” men are again out on the track and seem to show even better speed and better form than last year. In addition a number of promising new candidates are work- ing hard for the team. The absence of Capt. Reiter of last year’s team is keenly felt. The team will have the advantage of strict training diet and strict training regulations. The manager has arranged a good schedule and we will meet Rutgers for the first time in track. In spite of the fact that there will be only one home meet, the student body is taking a great interest in the work of the team, and all indications are that the season of 1912 will be a most successful one in Muhlenberg’s youngest sport.

It was rather drizzly, but this fact only heightened the ardor of the combatants, instead of cooling it as one would naturally suppose. At 3:30 P. M. both classes, stripped to the waist and redolent with the odor of greese, appeared on the baseball field. Both bowlmen. Nenow for the Sophs and Reisner for the uninitiated, made impassioned speeches to their followers, urging them to do battle to the death and outlining a campaign. i The first half finally ended in a draw after the fiercest struggle ever witnessed in a similar contest, the freshmen completely baffling the older men by their new and unique defense. President Leisey took charge of the bowl for the Sophs for the next round in place of Nenow. Here the experience of 1914 told, although the freshmen put up a game fight, and the result was in doubt until the whistle blew, with the score 20-12 favoring the Sophs. Reisner, the pluck} ' bowlman of the green, was caught under the bowl in the press and was temporarily hors de combat, although fully restored in a very brief time. Fink refereed the scrap and Coach Kelly counted the lucky ones’ hands.

Walters Right Tackle Marks Page One Forty-two The Basketball Season T HE inter-class basketball series this winter was productive of much wholesome class spirit and intense interest in the final out- come. The Seniors, winners of the last series, seemed not to take any particularly energetic steps on the ladder to success, probably thinking that it was enough to win one series and that they could share the honors with some other class. The Juniors went after the series with all their wonted fire and vim and all season a faithful “scrub” made the “Champs” work their hardest to win. P. Loser filled the vacancy left by David’s departure very creditably. All the other members of the victorious quintette also played in champion- ship style, and as a result the team went along at even gait, defeating all comers, till they met their rivals, 1914, in their second game. Captain “Hod” Butz neglected to smoke that day and so his eyes, accustomed to being half dozed in an effort to escape the deadly fumes, saw the basket distorted to twice its normal size. This game in some strange way resulted in a victory for the Sophs, and for a couple of weeks their sweet dreams of ultimate success audibly filled the campus. But all these fond hopes were rudely, even cruelly shattered by the overwhelming defeat inflicted by the Juniors in the de- ciding game. With this victory for the Juniors went the Basketball Championship of the College. The Sophomores, however, deserve great credit for the immense improvement over the pre- ceding year. Inspired by their valuable acquisition, peppery Captain Phillips, they worked faithfully and developed the best team work seen in the cage this season. Leisy “came back” strong in every department of the game, and all worked in perfect harmony, as the class also strongly supported the team. The Freshmen made a good fight against the odds of inexperience and sickness. The latter deprived them of the services of Manager Schmoyer, their star center, and of Ettinger, his capable substitute. Reisner, a football star, was the main thing in the green ranks, many times tacking a man for a loss, when his goal was in imminent danger. This preliminary train- ing will stand them in good stead next year, as promising material is quite abundant among the budding “studes.” The Specials surprised everyone by their remarkable showing. With a little more practice and consequent team work, they would have made the result of several of their games turn about for their advantage. Blackburn was their shining light, but “Rube” Miller was like a postage stamp in his adhesiveness to his man. The games were quite rough, due to various causes and frequently resembled rough and tumble fights. Class spirit often ran very high at the contests. All the teams worked hard for the coveted first position, except the Seniors who rested on their laurels. As individuals the Juniors were undoubtedly the best, but the Sophs, due to more practicing, led in team work. A weakness in foul shooting led to the latter’s downfall, while the Juniors won many a game by Keim’s ability in that respect. From the good showing made by some of the men in the inter-class series, it is very evident that Muhlenberg has some good material to work on to produce a good representative Varsity next year, when Basketball will be inaugurated at Muhlenberg.

Reminiscences Page One Sixl )-eighi Annual Meeting of the Board of Trustees College Chapel, Wednesday Afternoon, June 14, 1911 At the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the College, a determined effort was decided upon to secure a fund of $300,000 to pay off the debt of the institution, increase the endowment fund sufficiently to keep the college on an easy running basis, and erect the new Preparatory School on the site adjoining the college, which is owned by the institution. The College at present has a debt of $75,000. This sum in the face of what has been done within recent years seems small, but the Board wants to eliminate it as quickly as possible in order to make additional improvements possible. 1 he endowment fund of the college at present is $270,000 and it is thought that the addition of $100,000 will make the fund suffi- cient to keep the college on a safe, easy basis. The projected buildings for the Allentown Preparatory School will cost about $100,000, it is thought, although so far no definite build- ing plans have been adopted. The remainder of the sum will be necessary for various funds and improvements for the college. Rev. W. D. C. Keiter, D.D., on behalf of the Preparatory School, reported that subscrip- tions and cash to the amount of $20,000, had been received for that institution. New rules for the government of students of the college were discussed and adopted. The elections of James Bossard, as successor to E. Dudley Ross, instructor in history, and Prof. E. A. Simpson, as successor to H. Milton Ellis, as instructor in English, were confirmed. Two members were elected to the Board, Rev. J. H. Waidelich, of Sellersvi lie, a former member, and Rev. Chas. M. Jacobs, pastor of Christ Lutheran Church, this city. They suc- ceed J. J. Kutz, of Reading, and Rev. James O. Schlenker, of Hazleton. The other mem- bers whose terms expired were re-elected. $ Annual Meeting of the Alumni Association College Chapel, Wednesday, June 14, 1911 The meeting of the Alumni Association was a busy session. The Class of 1911 was re- ceived into membership. A committee was appointed by the President to procure the co-oper- ation of all former non-graduates, asking them to become associate members. Another committee was appointed to revise the Constitution and By-Laws. Many present deemed it advisable to secure a man of national reputation to address the members of the Alumni Association at the annual meetings. The discussion centered upon the appointment of a committee to secure the co-operation of all the graduated classes of Muhlenberg to hold annual banquets or reunions at commence- ment time. It is the desire of the committee that no less than six classes hold their reunions either biennial, triennial, or quadrennial. Following the session the members of the Alumni Association had luncheon served in the Assembly Room.

Geiss Page One Eighty-two The Juniors kept alive one of Muhlenberg’s old traditions, " Die Chunior Ausflug,” which was inaugurated in 1902, when the old festivities of the occasion were celebrated on Tuesday, April 16tli. The first event of the Ausflug was the usual Minister Pagan baseball game. Contrary to all ex- pectations and to former Minister-Pagan games, this one did not prove to be a farce, but was rather of the type of major league ball, due undoubtedly to the fact that the members of the class are athletically inclined, as evidenced by past athletic records. The game was featured largely by a pitcher’s battle between Groff, the Pagan slab artist, and Blatt, the flinger for the Ministers, in which the former had slightly the better advantage. P. Loser was the star at the bat for ' the Pagans, while Wacker’s sensational steal of home in the ninth inning caused no little excitement in the Minister’s camp. The game ended with the score 4-3 in favor of the Pagans after the Ministers had made a bold rally in the ninth inning. The usual humorous and becoming costumes were worn by the players at the game, but those of E. Loser and Stauffer were the only ones to re- ceive any comment from the faculty. After the game all the “Chuniors” " flew out” to the Mt. Vernon Inn at Siegfried’s, in the company of good old Dr. Wackernagle and Prof. Bossard, the new instructor. A sumptuous feast was enjoyed greatly by all. After the feast followed fond reminiscences of the year and lofty visions of the Senior year and the following toastn were responded to: " The Ausflug” J. Conrad Seegers " The Ciarla” Charles E. Keim “1913 — Ministers; Business Men; “Booze-Heisters” William L. Katz “Junior Athletics” Fred P. Butz " If A is B, Y is Beer” Phares G.

This class thus planned — unknown it thought An epicurean feast to hold; Deciding that every member should haste, To New York town so bold. “The best laid plans of boys and men, They aft ha’gang aglee;” Thus spoke the poet Robert Burns, In Scotland o’er the sea. One there was among this class — Who felt that this was true; His name — perhaps tombstones may tell, I won ' t, t’vvould never do. Of course, you know, this class had foes. Who in life does not? So on the night of the tenth of March, These foes thus planned by lot. This evening after clios talk, We’ll in yon graveyard hide — And when this man does pass the switch, We ' ll swiftly on him glide. Now with this “soph” a fair dame walked, She screamed, the ghosts! Iv-gee! He turned, but lo before him stood Nothing that he might see. Around a portico in town, A reception fair was planned. This man was carried off so fast. As though by a witch’s hand. Three miles a minute, gee how they flew, To a country hotel they were flying, The next day to Bob Hunt’s hotel they withdrew, With autos and telephones flying. Now this was the ’leventh of March nine- teen-ten, The day they to feast did intend. Planning that they all to New York town should haste, — But listen how sad their plans end. When at the feast the speaker called L. K. I call on thee No answer to his call was heard, The plans had failed — you see. “For the best laid plans of boys and men. They aft ha’gang aglee;” Thus spoke the poet Robert Burns — Thus say I to thee.

PEDIGREE Dutch Our mascct! He satisfies the long felt need for a college pet and is a great favorite with all the fellows. His huge frame meandering slowly over the green, fills us with a feeling of sweet content at owning such a beauty. In a natty uniform of cardinal and grey, Dutch at- tracted all eyes at our football games last fall He belongs to all of us and so to none. As a student our favorite is interested especially in Botany, examining everything about the place in a truly scientific and exact manner. Although the descendant of royalty, as his pedigree shows, is a perplexing mixture of faults and virtues, he belongs to us and we are proud to own him. Long live Dutch!

Page One Ninety-eight The 1913 Ciarla I N the publication of this book our constant endeavor has been to please and interest rather than to displease and discourage, not only the Faculty, but also the Student Body. The policy of the Ciarla Staff has been that a good representative book, published on time, free of debt, neat in appearance, and presenting the history of a busy year in an interest- ing manner, without causing any ill feeling to anyone connected with our fair Muhlenberg, would be the kind of book most desired. This we have felt was our duty to our class, to our college and to the Ciarlas of the future, and we believe this is the spirit of our class. In accordance with our policy we have made three departures from precedent. First, we have eliminated all familiar allusions to the members of the Faculty, whom we honor and re- spect for what they have done for us in our three years at our Alma Mater. Secondly, we have excluded all disrespectful references to the character of any student at college. Thirdly, we have endeavored to publish a book whose appearance would reflect great credit on our col- lege without incurring any expense that our assets would not allow. Other and minor changes have been made, which we hope will be received in the spirit in which they have been made. We hereby wish to avail ourselves of this opportunity to gratefully acknowledge the liberality of all the progressive business men who have advertised in this Ciarla. We also wish to thank all members of the Faculty, students and friends who have mani- fested an interest in our work. Too much credit cannot be given to the Business Managers, Meek, Cressman and Bixler, thru whose untiring efforts the publication of this leather bound issue, the first of its kind at Muhlenberg, has been made possible. They have established a record that will be a great stimulus to increased exertion for succeeding classes to equal, and we are proud to say that it has never been equalled. All the members of the Editorial Staff al o deserve much praise for their faithful work. Especially is this true of Scheehl and Krauss who were always ready to lend a helping hand. Our artists have produced sketches that reflect great credit on themselves, and the photograph- ers also showed their willingness to work for the good of the book. Our hope m presenting this book is that our efforts will be appreciated and that we have well served our Alma Mater. — The E DITOR. Page One Ninety-nine Index to Advertisers Adams, S.

Since 1876 we have been building, step by step, this grand old music house, and we do not propose to tear down our enviable reputation, by handling or representing any one or number of instruments, that will prove our undoing. We believe in quality, in value, and know wise buyers will willingly pay the price an instrument is worth, knowing full well their money will bring them full value and satisfaction. The G. C. Aschbach aim and policy is to supply the needs of the music lover, to personally guaran- tee every instrument, to maintain the one price system and to give the most value for your money. There is not a store in this part of the state as large, so well equipped and that strives to serve you better than we do. We extend to you a hearty invitation to visit us at your convenience, realizing that when you once see the G. C. Aschbach Music House you will recognize our big values and our standing as a music house of t lie highest order. G. C.
