HAAS, D.D., LL.D. g teaf erq Coffegc Rev. JOHN A. W. HAAS, D.D., LL.D., President. Professor of Religion and Philosophy. Since Dr. Haas became President of Muhlenberg, many import- ant changes have been brought about for the improvement of the College. Needed buildings have been erected from time to time, giving the College campus an imposing appearance. The courses of study have been greatly increased in number and amplified in their scojie, with the result that they now compare favorably with those in any of the colleges of Pennsylvania. But while directing Muhlenberg in her upward career. Dr. Haas has not neglected any of the less prominent functions of his position, such as the personal relation of professor to student. He frequently mingles unofficially with the students, engaging with them in informal conversation, and exerting an individual influence that is felt and appreciated by the many men of all classes with whom he comes in tact. Moreover, with his eager sympathy for the gridiron rooters, his hearty co-operation with the literary society devotees, and his encouraging support of the student mission workers, he maintains a careful and welcomed oversight of all the student interests. The decade during which Dr. Haas has been at the head of Muhlenberg has been one of pronounced success in every depart- ment and it is the sincere hope of every one that he will long continue to be the maker and preserver of Greater Muhlenberg. ]Iorn at Philadelphia, Pa., August 31, 1862.

Professor of Latin Language and I.iteratt’re, and Pedagogy. Dr. Ettinger has been conneeted with Mnhlenl)erg College — first in the Academic Department and later as a Professor in the College itself — for more than thirty years. In all this long period he has l)een teacliing Latin, seeking to give his pupils a deep, firm, appreciative grasp on the stimulating literature of the Roman people. In addition to this he serves the College as its Dean, and is also an active mem- ber of the editorial committee of the College Bidletin. Eor many years he had charge of the Muhlenberg Library, and in his work of collation and arrangement laid the foundation for future efforts, and was very instrumental in establishing the Allen- town Public Library and providing for its needs. Dr. Ettinger is welcomed everywhere as an entertaining speaker, who can always draw from his wide and varied activity to interest and benefit an audienee. We hoi)e he may long continue to be a representative of Aluhlenberg College. Born at Allentown, Pa., November 8, 1800.

Jordan, LL.D., and Edgar AL Green, A.M., M.D. Literary Editor of the Allentown “Morning Call,” Rev. William Wackernagel, D.D., Chaplain. Professor of Modern Languages and Literature. Whenever an old graduate conies back to roam the Midilenberg campus once again, his first ()uestion is “How’s old Wackie. ” For thirty-four years the Doctor has lieen here at Muhlen- berg, teaching (jernian and French and Spanish, but this is not all. For thirty-four years he has been laboring steadily, unwilling to part with his “boys”; has worked early and late, eager to help every man he could, be- cause Dr. Wackernagel will not ne- glect tlie opportunity to help some one. He has given the men who learn from him an example of kindness, and of the love that reaches out to all, ever manifesting toward them the beautiful German spirit of fatherliness that overlooks what is weak in human beings to find out and believe in what is good. He has served the College as its Chaplain, day after day facing in chapel the assem- bled student body with peculiar sincerity and devotion. All this he has done for thirty-four years — and is it any wonder that when a Muhlenberg man conies back home for a while he always asks “How’s old Wackie.?” Born at Basel on tlie Rhine, Switzeiland, September 25, 18SS.

John A. Bauman, Ph.D. Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy. In this sketch we celebrate the t wenty -ninth completed year, as teach- er at Muhlenberg, of the first alumnns of our Alma Mater who has become a member of the faculty of the College. In all the changes that have taken place in that time, the succession of presidents, the acquirement of new and better buildings, the growth of another faculty. Dr. Bauman has been a con- stant. For many years he conducted the Science Department, where the students worked under him with such “apparatus, cabinets, laboratory room, and furnishings’’ as were available in those days. It was natural for Dr. Bauman to change from the sphere of Science to that of Mathe- matics, and this chair he holds today. Tradition has it that he was once instructor of Greek and Ethics, and it is generally agreed that no other professor at Muhlenberg has covered in his teaching here so wide a range of subjects as Dr. Bauman. Even the office of Librarian was for many years held by him. We of Muhlenberg appreciate his faithful labors here, and rejoice that he is still active in them.

Horn, A.M. Mosser-Keck Professor of the Greek Language AND LiTEHATITRE. Prof. Horn is one of the mein})ers of the faculty from the Class of 1900. For many years he has been at the head of the Creek department, and in that time it has so grown in its scope that it now embraces all the important periods of Creek literature. The spirit of the ancient classics breathes from the statuary of the Creek room while the instruction, on the other hand, is modern in method and appli- cation; yet the spirit of inspiration from the past is never lost. He has given at different times public lectures on Creece, much enjoyed by those who attended. He was well pre- pared to do this, for he spent the summer in p]iirope more than once, studying the natives both of Northern and Southern Europe. Besides these things, for several years Prof. Horn conducted the Classical Club at Muhlenberg, and although this organization has now disbanded, its influence was beneficial to the student body. These are but a few of the ways in which he has worked for Muhlen- berg; and Muhlenberg is glad he is here. Born at Charleston, S. C., September L2, 18S1. Graduated with First Honor from the Charleston High School, 189G. Entered Charleston ( ' ollege, 1896. Entered Sophomore Class at Muhlenberg College, 1897. A.B.

Later elected to the Mosser-Keck Chair. Spent summer of 1900 in Greece and Italy anil summer of 1910 in Northern Europe. Leave of absence for study at Harvard ITniversity, 1907-08. n fea erq William Haas Reese, M.S. Asa Packek Professor of Natural and Applied Science. The work of Prof. Reese for athletics at Muhlenberg has been rec- ognized in some degree; and he is rightly called “The Father of Muhlen- berg Athletics.” But his work enters many other fields besides athletics. His classroom walls are covered with drawings illustrating his physical and chemical courses — drawings exe- cuted by himself. He is also a devotee of history and mythology, and interests his students frequently by pointing out the relation between old traditions and modern science. In the work directly connected with his department, he is full of stimulation both for those who are especially interested and those who are not. And there are many students who have faced failure at times in their college work, who have found a new insiiiration by talking with him. ] Ien have waved their hands and shouted “College Spirit, College Spirit,” without any real feeling of spirit at all; but Prof. Reese has an abundance of a certain sjiirit that he can give to others, and does give to others; whoever has absorbed it knows its value. Burn at Allentown, Pa., October 17, 1875. Prepared at Phillipsburg (N. J.) High School and Lerch’s Preparatory School, graduating in 1892. Ph.B., Lafayette College, 1890.

Illustrated Davinson s “Mammalian .Anatomy” and Davinson’s series of three books in Physiology. 1G — I Mn feaf era Harry D. Bailey, A.M. Professor of Biology. Lafayette College has given Muh= lenberg three of the members of her faculty, and one of these is Prof. Bailey. He has taken an active inter- est in the activities of the College, and is always welcomed for his interesting and significant speeches at Muhlen- berg smokers. But this is only inci- dental — his chief work is in the Biolo- gy Department. He is almost entirely responsible for the very remarkable growth of the Biology work at Muh- lenberg. A wide and inclusive collec- tion of entomological specimens has been added to the laboratory. He has also assiduously devoted himself to making microscopic slides of various organisms for use in biologic work. Long hikes have been taken with his classes over the countryside in a fruitful search for organisms of plant life. Prof. Bailey’s method of instruction is not by forcing students to work, but by stimulating their interest; and all honor is due him that he can so successfully call forth in students the true spirit of scholarship, when research becomes a pleasure and mental work a passion. This is Prof. Bailey’s contribution to Muhlenberg’s mental life, and it is a spirit for which Muhlenberg is deeply indebted to Lafayette College. Born at Easton, Pa., January 14, 1881. Graduated from the South Easton High School, 1897. A.B., Lafayette College, 1904. A.M., Lafayette College, 1909. Although pursuing a Classical Course, he specialized in Biology. Attended the Biological Laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, during the summer of 1903. A.ssistant in Biology at Lafayette College, and teacher in Easton Academy, 1905-03. Assistant in the Division of Zoology, Department of Agriculture, Harrisburg, 1908-09. Ap- pointed Instructor in Biology, Muhlenberg College, 1909, and elected Professor of Biology, 1910. — 17 hrh f YI)c 48f CfassI Robert R. Fritsch, A.M. Instructor in Modern Languages. The second member of the class of 1900 to come to the faculty of Muh- lenberg was Mr. Fritsch. He soon took nj) work in the Modern Language Dejiartment, in which he is today. Here his great desire is to fill the stu- dent with German, and to fulfill this desire he has taken great pains. He offers extra hours to those who have special difficulty in pronunciation, that they may get the German accent. To those who wish it he assigns further work in collateral German reading courses, including recognized novelettes and dramas, and covering a wide range of authors. Occasionally he conducts a German reading in his classroom, which is open to attend- ance by every one. By selecting his readings so as to interest students, he stimulates them to enjoy and appreciate spoken German. Mr. F ritsch also stands for helping the students in every way possible to im])rove morally. In this sphere his position is almost unique on the faculty. A few years ago he was the leader of one of the Muhlen- berg Bible study classes. Yhatever he can do to be of assistance athletically, intellectually, and morally, he is willing to do, and it is this that especially marks his instructorship here as a successful one.

Simpson, A.M., LIBRARIAN Associate Professor of Enolish. Although this is but the third year tliat Prof. Simpson has been teacliing at Muhlenberg, yet so closely has he associated himself with the working of the institution that the students in College feel that he has been here a much longer time. His instruction is marked by live, personal, persistent drilling, in which he at- tempts to give material not for the notebook but for the mind. His lec- tures, tests, and assignments have such stimulating variety that they appeal to the individual interests of the students. There is also another role in which Prof. Simpson is rendering the College great ser- vice, namely, that of Librarian. He has carefully catalogued the most important sections of our library, according to the Dewey Decimal and Cutter systems of classification, and is steadily at work to bring the cataloguing to completion. Prof. Simpson is one of the facidty members that seek to help men by personal intercourse; and in his sanctum, the Library, he discusses every variety of matter with every variety of man. In this way he has made himself a vital fac- tor in student life, a helper indispensable to those who know him. Born at Easton, Pa., May 4, 1874. Graduated at South Easton High School, 1892. . .B., Lafa- yette College, 1896. Phi Beta Kappa Honorary Fraternity. A.M., Lafayette College, 1899. Teacher in South Easton High School, 1897-1902.

It has been but a few years since Muhlenberg graduated the best foot- ball center she had up to that time. Now since this scholar and athlete has returned to his Alma Mater in the capacity of a member of the faculty, he has retained his old “spirit” and become one of the leaders in her grid- iron activities. He is a promoter of “college spirit” at football smokers and chapel mass-meetings, and his influence is distinctly felt by those students who fully appreciate the football situa- tion at Muhlenberg. Moreover, the demonstrates in connection with ath- letics also ajipears in his classroom work, with the result that he has made a radical and very successful departure from the beaten paths of teaching the social sciences. Instead cf spending all the time on pure unajiplied theory, he devotes a large part of it to a practical study of the vital economic and social problems facing America to- day. For this reason his courses are of great value to students otherwise likely to forget the world about them. Mr. Bossard has I)ut his work on a high level, and it seems he will have no trouble in maintaining it. Born at Danielsville, Pa., September 29, 1888. Entered public schools of Allentown at age of twelve, (iraduated from Allentown High School with Honor, 1905. Entered Muhlenberg College, 1905. Alpha Tan Omega Fraternity.

John D. M. Brown, A.M. Insthuctoh in English. Mr. Brown is not only one of the youngest, l)iit one of the most en- thusiastic members of the faculty. Ilis undergraduate record at Muhlen- berg shows that in addition to his scholastic work, he was editor-in-chief of the CiAKLA and of “The Muhlen- berg,” making of both very successful publications. At College he also de- veloped the habit of taking long hikes, and, as a result of this, he spent last summer hiking through England and visiting the literary shrines there. Mr. Brown has been a student of a very wide range of subjects — oratory (Neff system), modern languages (in- cluding Italian), English, contemporary literature, Semitics, Aesthetics. Although he resigned his ministerial charge to come to IMuhlenberg, yet he still finds time amid arduous duties to fill ])ulpits on Sundays. His work at College as instructor has been marked with great suc- cess, and he is recognized now as a valuable factor for exciting en- thusiasm and spirit at football smokers. Although this is but his second year at Midilenberg in his present cai)acity, he has become invaluable in the work of the College. Born at Lebanon, Pa., December 2, 1883. Educated in public .schools of Lebanon. Graduated with First Honor from Lebanon High School, 1!)02. Entered Muhlenberg College, 1902. A.B. (Amos Ettinger Honor Medal), Muhlenberg College, 1900.

Elected Instructor in English at Muhlenberg College, 1912. Spent summer of 1913 in England. Member of National Council of Teachers of English. — 21 — Albert C. H. Fasig, M.S. Instructor in Chemistry and Physics. At the time of writing it is but little more than a year since Mr. Fasig came back to his Alma Mater as an instructor in the Science Department. Since that time his work has already been marked by distinct achievements. In the first place, the laboratory system has been perfected with his aid. All the work done by students is thoroughly checked and accredited, new and up-to-date equipment is fur- nished, and personal direction is given to each student. These things were not possible with but one Professor in charge. But Mr. Fasig has not confined himself to the work of instruc- tion. In his college days he was an effective football player, and now has already won a reputation for sensible, invigorating football speeches. As a gridiron veteran, he exerts a decided influence in Muhlenberg athletic circles. Moreover he delivered a lecture to the class in Economics on milk and meat inspection as he had found it in Beading, thus supplementing the regular lectures in that branch. His activities are increasing in breadth and scope, and Muhlenberg realizes that she has been favored in having Mr. Fasig for an in- structor. Born at Reading, Pa., September 18, 1888. Graduated from Reading High School, 1906. En- tered Sopliomore class at Muhlenberg College, 1906. Alpha Tail Omega Fraternity. B.S., Muhlenberg College, 1909. M.S., Muhlenberg College, 1910. Employed by the Board of Health, Reading, Pa., as chemist in the Department of Milk and Meat Inspection. Elected Instructor in the Department of Natural and . p[)lied Science at Muhlenberg College, March 1, 1913. — 22 — n Meafeerq offe qe Harold K. Marks Instructor in Music There are many supporters of Muhlenberg who well remember the great and inspiring musical work of Dr. C. A. Marks, whose labors of sever- al years at College were suddenly cut off by his death in 1912. To all of these the appointment of Mr. Harold D. Marks, son of the former, as instruc- tor of music at Muhlenberg, must come with special satisfaction. The short time that he has been at College he has proved that the spirit of his father breathes in him. His influence has been exerted on the side of refined and classic music, and in accordance with the highest and truest principles of his art. Mr. Alarks has done much to place the course in music in the high rank that the other fine arts courses maintain. The glee club is also a product of his effort, and the glowing success of that organization in the current year is based on his careful and helpful supervision. It is hoped that the depart- ment of music may continue to grow under his guidance. Born at Emaus, Pa., May 12, 1886. At an early age came to Allentown. Entered Allentown High School.

How remotely distant it appeared but four short years ago! Here we stand in a little group,, and before us lie twenty-eight diverging pathways, leading to the ends of the earth. We are on the line, and have heard the “get set,” and with “go” a new page of historj will have been turned in each life. In the word Commencement, we see only commence. We are thinking of the unknown future, as we leave these halls so full of rich memories. What does it hold for us? Has this miniature world of ours given us a glimpse of our destinies? Will we display the same traits in life that we have developed here? Is there an essential difference out there, other than that the stakes are so much bigger and the fight more bitter and intense? We have been pre- paring for this day, and it has come. We have learned to know each other thoroughly. We have formed friendships that shall sweeten after days; we have met men with whom we could not form close ties; but, one and all, we are overlooking these petty differences as we stand together for the last Alma Mater. There is sorrow in our departure, yet we are eager to go, for there is not a on e of us who is not absolutely confident of the future, not a man who does not feel perfect assurance. Some of us must have a rough journey, however, and others will find the “bon voyage” that we all wish to each other. Come what may, we all hold in our hearts indelible memories of four rare years together at Muhlenberg, where we struggled to lay hold of the highest ideals, where we strived to uphold the heritage that is ours. When thirty years have passed, and these maples have become towering massive trees, and the ivy has reached the gables, we will return and thank God for the opportunity that has been ours.

Bagger “boob” “He was so generally civil that no one thanked him tor it.” “Boo!) ” Bagger possesses an abun- dance of energy, and consequently is one of the hardest working fellows in school. He spends all his time doing something; sometimes it is the Hercu- lean task of brushing all the dust off from his immaculate table-top; at other times it is nothing but cleaning his rooms. He even won’t go fussing because he can’t spare the time. How- ever, by far the main part of Bagguh’s time goes to his books. Up to the time of writing he has taken every prize offered to his class. It seems well-nigh impossible that a youth coming from the Manual Training High School, overlooking New York Bay and the common school branches, should get away with them all. Athletics is another phase of Henry’s work. It is no physical characteristic at all that makes Henry a good athlete. For Bagger is a fighter. He fights! When he was a Freshman he fought against the Soi)homores, and the first half of the Soph year he as President led the whole class in the anti-Freshman struggle. Any one who reads this sketch or who knows Henry Bagger personally will understand that such characteristics mark a man with strongest kind of college spirit; he will also perceive why Boob’s greatest collegiate success was in a play given !)y the Dramatic Association, when — calling into i)lay all his supple grace of figure and sparkling brilliance of mind — he acted in the role of chorus-girl. His future is impossible of prediction. Alake your own guesses! Rrooklyn, N. Y. Born at Brooklyn, November 12, 1893. Prepared at Manual Training and District High Schools, Brooklyn.

Uubbs “abe” “A bright heart lives long.” How Diibbs hapiiened to be the son of an humble Pennsylvania Dutch- man instead of the President of the United States is entirely beyond onr limited comprehension. He surely has the “makin’s” of a great man. H is noble heart is filled with high aspira- tions and noble sentiments which he even now pours forth from his soul to eager listeners (don’t tell the gentle- man that half of them are asleep). They — especially the half that sleep — with one accord say that Harrison gives promise of one day being a world- famed speaker. But we must also sjieak of Dnbbs’ valor. Already in the bowl- fightway back in 1911 he proved his mettle. AVhen he appeared for that historic conflict clad in his Sunday best he did not hesitate to enter the fray, but fought “nobly and well” until certain absolutely indis- pensable portions of his apparel were forcibly and rudely removed. However, Dnbbs’ disposition is not altogether free from the evidences of ranting ambition. We are compelled to state that he is fired with the noble desire to become an archeologist. He expects to make discoveries in the archeological world that will make the Rosetta Stone seem insignificant in comparison, if indeed he does not prove that discovery a palpable fraud. Surely the fearless eye, the noble brow, the wavy raven hair all betoken the great man to be. There can be no doubt of it — Didibs is the man to bring fame and honor to his Alma Mater. Long after the walls of this historic institution have crumbled into dust, praises of the name of Harrison Winebert Dnbbs will still make the welkin ring in honor of himself and of his native town.

EtTINGER “Not much talk, a great sweet silence.” This interesting member of onr elass is characterized by his taciturnity and his tendencies for fussing. It is indeed remarkable that these two shonld go together as they do, but it seems, in this case at least, the combina- tion works to the greatest satisfaction of all concerned. There have been men of few words, and men of modest demeanor, but as the superlative of these stands Et- tinger. He never has a great deal to say and what he does say is tersely expressed. But — when he says some- thing it is usually worth while and to the point. Perhaps this is the reason why Ettinger succeds so well as a fnsser. As all know, a girl likes to talk, and it may be the more a fellow lets her talk the better she likes it. If this is the case, Etting- er’s taciturnity and his suggestive remarks help to create the Ideal which every girl is looking for. To return to our subject, Ettinger is a fnsser of the first order and his triumphs over the feminine sex are beyond number. Despite this, he has never gained the name of heartbreaker. There are several ways that this could be avoided, but only two are worthy of mention. First. Let the girl chuck you. Impossible. No man could stand this forever and so at some time would earn the name of heartbreaker. Second. Tact. This is both possible and probable, for Ettinger possesses oodles of it. Thus, his innate breeding and common sense have spared him the title of heartbreaker and proved him a man of tact. Mt. Bethel, Pa. Horn .June 24, 1895. Prepared at East Stroudsburg Normal School.

Fehl “He laid so many books in his head that his brain could not move.” Here is a man who is always on the job. Fehl never Fehls — you must par- don the pun, but no record of the re- markable person could be complete without that time-honored play on his name. And Harry clings obsti- nately to the obsolete idea that college is the place to study. He actually seems to think there is something worth while in school-books, and persists in trying to find out what it is. For this perse verant spirit Harry is to be strongly praised. He does not confine this characteristic to his books. Whenever there is anything going on at which his presence is desirable, he is there. On Poster Night he was one of the many Sophomores that undertook and accomplished the temporary ruin of the Freshmen. Harry was on hand on the gridiron side-lines during F. M. week. He helped enjoy the goodies at that memorable banquet given by the Sophomore class. Finally, he appeared in the 1912 bowl fight. So his record runs on. Of course Harry has his faults. For a detailed account of these I can but refer to his former room-mate. Day after day Fehl’s chum was kind enough to leeture him on this subject in this way. “Harry. — go fussing. There is study and exercise. Dancing gives this. Conic sections? Watch the new dances! Infinitesimals? Calcu- late the modern girl’s shyness!” Harry listens quietly to all this, and some day intends to unite this instruction with what his other teachers have given him, and give it to the world in a book. “Future assumed?

Finck ( ( 9 SPEED “Void of all deception, he speaks his mind without hesitation. ” A few days before the formal open- ing of onr Sophomore year, when we were slowly drifting together again from the fields of our various summer endeavors, in the midst of the confu- sion attendant upon our coming, the voice of one crying in the wilderness of Georgia that he was on his way to join us reached our ears. For a day or two that was all. Then, like a star rising out of the horizon, there loomed into our ken the mighty Theodore. Finck is a man who hasn’t had a bit of excitement in his life — not a quiver! He has seen no turbulent times, nor has he lived in any period of disturlied days. Life with Theodore has been one grand, sweet monotone, ])eaceful as a summer morn. However, he was temporarily brought to life when night after night he took his bumps as a scrul) for our basketlfall team. Then Finck jumped into fame with a vengeance. Any man that has the nerve to play the Quartette from Rigoletto, in the Commons, just after a session of ragtime, deserves notice — but — when he plays it so well as to win an encore, he is famous. Finck, however, does not depend entirely upon liis music to express his thoughts, for by the ordinary vibration of his vocal cords he can expound some of the most unusual thoughts ever formulated by the mind of man. When a thought hits him, Finck is most interesting. His fall from a seat in the Logic Room, while Dr. Haas was demonstrating the six canons of the syllogism, proves the psychological assumption that “all thought tends toward action. ’’ New Market, Va.

From the time he first saw the liglit of day, this gentleman has sjient the large ma- jority of his time in sleeping. This craving for rest enahles him to sleep anywhere at any time. It is known that on one occasion at least he even slejit in a car-barn. Moreover, since he is usually in such a state of semi-somnolence, he is absolutely in- capable of keeping an appointment, unless he is lured there by prospects of something to eat. Owing to this failing he has never yet ajipeared on time for his classes and frec(uently misses the first class in the morning entirely. To continue, we must confess that he possesses somewhat of music in his soul. -Freddy, by hook or crook, has obtained the posi- tion of pianist on the (ilee Club (also that of organist in an unwitting Catasauqua Church) and the life of its members would indeed be hard were he not there to accompany their efforts. Elmer certainly plays an important part in the concerts this energetic body gives, but just what role he holds is a question. Freddy is a silent body, unwilling to attract a lot of notoriety, glad to take a back seat. But “There’s a Reason. ” It is commonly reputed among those who know him best that he takes the back seat in order to fix pins in the chairs in front. As for his future, his hopes are slender indeed, for, unless an antidote for his sleeping sickness be injected, he will dream all through life. We sincerely hope some one will slij) him the dope-needle. Allentown, Pa. Born at Hellertown, Pa., March 29, 1893. Prepared at Catasauqua High School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1911. Ph.B.

Melvin Freed “nevin” “Industry shall have its reward.” Wisely seeking to lietter himself by a college education, Nevin left be- hind him the busy marts of Perkasie and set out to see what a real city had to offer him. At first the life down town appealed to him and he became one of those daily travelers to and fro. But soon a longing for the intimate fellowship of the dorms seized him and, as the chill winter winds froze his little ears, he moved all his worldly goods to the room above the arcade, where he enjoj ed peace and comfort. As a Sophomore, he became the terror of the impudent and impru- dent Freshies by the stern way in which he exercised the iron rod of power for their own good as he gave out orders for the feeding of our mascot, “Dutch.” (“Dutch,” may his soul rest in peace, died!) But all tins was as nothing to the position which he secured as assistant in library and cataloguing work. He has been in- itiated into all the secrets of the professional librarian and has be- come so expert that, by the use of the “arbitrary system” (patent applied for), he can now pick out any book asked for within three chances or you get your money back. Try him! You can’t lose anything by it, not even your money! Melvin vows he will never marry, and therefore his wedding will come off about three weeks after Commencement in the year 1915. He will marry one of the sweet and lovely kind of Perkasie. (Perhaps since the Junior Ball this is no longer true.) But no matter who it is, Freedie is sure to make a living for two, even if he makes his wife take in washing. Perkasie, Pa. Horn at Perkasie, Pa., December 2, 1888.

Freihofer “bill” “He has a head to contrive, a tongue to persuade, and a hand to execute any business.’’ As becomes a citizen of a busy Inirg like Philadelphia, Bill is always on the go, usually between Allentown and home. Do what he will, he cannot endure life at college for more than a few days at a time. Why it is, we do not know. Perhaps somebody is wait- ing for him at the other end of the line. Again it is suspected that he is a stock- holder of the railroad and patronizes it by traveling to and fro in order to increase the dividends. This seems likely, for only a business head could devise such a scheme, and Bill is busi- ness itself. Small-bore poets have dinged at us for years and years that “little drops of water, little grains of sand, make the mighty ocean and the pleasant land.” But this process is too slow to attract much attention at this college. Wherefore let us salute Bill Freihofer. He goes in for broad effects. This Ciarla is a living testimony to that spirit of his, and if yon could have been at the banquet our class held you would have seen still further evidences of it. And then there is that unprecedented stunt, the Junior Ball, which also owed its success to Bill’s fondness for big effects. But where is Bill going to. We mean in this life; his work in an East Allentown Sunday-school assures him a safe resting-place in the hereafter. It may be that he will become a politician, or else he may make his dough in the baking business, but, at all events, we know that if “ Desperate Will ” once gets started he will make good.

Geiss “tony” “Comb down his hair; look, look! it stands upright” Newton came from Kutztown, a departure which deserves much com- mendation — not that we love Kutztown less, but that we love Newton more. When we see his mantel adorned with numerous photos of fair “class- mates at Normal” we wonder how he ever came away, but doubtless the rickety, bouncing rat-trap of a trolley car that crawls through the valley was the means of his emigration. Geiss is a worker first of all and converted his room-mate to the same idea. Geiss works hard at other things be- sides his books. He is one of the few in the class that can boast of being for two years on the class teams of football, basketball, and baseball. Newt has no athlete’s physiciue, but he plays with a spirit that more than makes up for it. Watch him in a game of basketball — his body grows tense, liis face flushes red, and his mouth sets in the never- give-up expression that does not wear off until the last whistle blows. In basel)all he was manager of the class team in his Freshman year. In addition he has scrubbed faithfully on the gridiron for the varsity ever since he came to college. These things enable one to see why it is that Newt is fully deserving of the trust and confidence reposed in him when he was elected manager of the Muhlenberg football varsity. Twenty years from now you will find Prof. Geiss surrounded by a “dicke Frau” and crowds of little children (not kids, if you please), serenely standing near the schoolhouse where he has made his mark in the world — and on the blackboard.

Hemsath 4 ( 9 9 SACH “And truly he loved to be quizzed.” As I was saying, before the Blue Pencil eliminated the introduction, Fred discovered that his classmates were erring most of the time, and believe me, once he got the idea he wa s right he had the courage of his convictions, and nothing could alter his opinions. Let us cite the historic “Case of the Blue Shirt.” It seems that at one time some utterly irresponsible Fresh- man had started a conflagration in Hemsath’s locker, during the course of which an ancient, antique shirt was consumed, said shirt valued at seven cents or thereabouts. Merely “as a matter of principle” and “to prevent any further vandalism of such a nature,” Hemsath shouted for six weeks about the affair, and after taking the case before the Student Council nearly precipi- tated a riot when it was discovered that he accused two of his inno- cent classmates. How is that for courage of one’s convictions. Ph-ed struggles beneath two fond illusions — the first that he can sing, the second that he can jilay tennis. As regards the former, we can only say that it is generally believed impossible that his position on the church choir was won by merit. As regards the other illusion, however, we must confess that as a tennis player Hemsath is second to some. Although he always was a staunch Euterpean, nevertheless he has gone so far as to cut Society to indulge himself in this pastime. Gentle Reader, you had best turn on to some other subject lest you become convinced that Hemsath is utterly without good in his makeup — which is, we assure you, hardly the case. Bethelehem, Pa.

Kauffman “slats” “What! didn’t you ever liear of Francis Wilson?” It has long Ijeen the custom of our German Professor to recommend to “ strides” desirous of increasing their vocabularies the practice of transla- tion of the names of all familiar objects. Znni Beispiel when walking downtown one sights a tree the method prescribes that you exclaim; “das ist ein Baum” — thereby adding to the world’s know- Icflge. Behold ergo the only original self-starting Baum. It would be un- fair to dwell at length (and there is some length) upon the physical char- acteristics of the aforesaid Baum; suf- fice it to saj " that the one distinguish- ing feature of this arboreal-like speci- men is the fact that he must have hollow limbs. Shades (or rather blinds) of Walnut Street, how that man can eat. His capacity for foodstuffs is unlimited, as any reputable physician will inform the reader. Nobody can tell Baum a thing about music, copper wire, or the theater, and he can recite off-hand the names of all the famous American cartooners. But listen closely, reader, if you would alter an unusually cheerful disposition and cause a wrathful outburst on the part of this young man, after whom the “Slatington Limited” has been affectionately named, just whisper “Didn’t yon ever hear of Francis Wilson?” Of his fondness for hold-ups, Mealey’s, disturbing the domestic tranquillities of the Dorms, the fair sex, etc., volumes might be written — blit — what’s the use?

Keiter “mose ? 9 “Good nature and good sense united, the product, a man. ” With no ulterior motive in view except the preservation of the histori- cal verities and the deduction of suit- able moral lessons therefrom, we may say that Keiter in his youth was a youngster — yea, he was a fresh young- ster. They used to make him run around the play-grounds at school a set number of times for talking too much. By thus reviewing the life and activities of “Mose” the exceeding truth of the adage that the tree inclines as the twig is bent is forced again upon us. This boy can be insolent, impudent, satirical, sarcastic, by turns. Let him talk about a subject and that sid: ject immediately becomes the most important subject in the world. He never asks you to do a thing, but tells you to do it. His greatest anil)ition in life is to make Hemsath uncomfortable. A cartoonist would do well to draw him about eleven feet tall, with a face long enough to eat oats out of a barrel. He would be far happier if he were only a modest five feet ten or so ; but, of course, it isn’t his fault. But he doesn’t mind. He has chosen, as his precept: “Be calm.” Even his middle name, speaking Germanwise, Ruhe, is a translation of it. He lets all things adjust themselves. LTrged to fervent action, he asks “What’s the use. ” He adjures all others to be calm, but is himself the calmest of all. Ruhe ! rest ! I think he looks at life as a sort of ring-round-a-rosy performance, with no more definite end in view than the ringing round the rosy. He is as reliable as Old Dog Tray. Allentown, Pa.

Kistler “High sparks of honor in thee have I seen.” The hell has rung, the recitation begun, when suddenly the door opens and in rushes a little body, breathing heavily. A single glance will convince yon that this person has been rushing and hurrying ever since he woke. He probably contracted this habit from his Marathon running, for let it be known that Howard B. Kistler is an experienced long-distance runner. Sometimes, however, Howard comes to class wearing a grouch, and while in this state he is easily peeved by the actions of the common herd of his classmates. When once aroused, then indeed he makes the fur fly, for he talks so fast and so loudly and so earnestly in his effort to be heard at once, or before, if possible, that his language becomes much more vociferous than intelligible. Metaphor, hyperbole, simile, ])ersonification, and every other known — and some unknown — figures of speech flow from his lips in such an ecstatic profusion as to })roduce something resembling a Chautanqua harangue. Once let him get a miming start in defense of the Bull Moose party or the military rejmtation of the Pennsylvania Germans and few powers on earth can stop him. His clofiuence is indeed startling. Nowhere in his history can there be found any trace of a love affair. We are at a sad loss to know to what to attribute this de- liiKiuency. Young man, remember that celibacy with college men is listed with arson and manslanghter today, as it was in 1840. Do not allow yonr otherwise fair name thus to be desecrated. Allentown, I’a.

Harold Laury “A fine volley of words and quickly shot off.” Ordinary people tire us very often by the mere monotony of their actions and the ordered routine of their lives. Great as his other faults may be (em- phasis on the “may”), this offense lias never been laid at Laury’s door. Originality and the Unexpected are the keywords of his whole make-np. He never reacts in the usual way to external stimuli, but strikes off at a distinctly Laury ian tangent. With ordinary mortals it usually happens that a ducking with a bucket of water will produce anger. In fact, this is so generally the case that it is stated as the law of ducking. Lauiy does not regard this in the least but, setting aside the wisdom of the savants, merely laughs as he wrings out his flrip]hng shirt. But don’t get the notion that there is no anger in his person, for there is oodles of it. He is liable to come in to his room laughing and smiling and inside of fifteen seconds develoji the most delightful grouch that could be imagined because he finds his room mussed up to the extent of a paper or book on the floor. His greatest pleasure in life, if we except the ladies (his common bond with ordinary men), is plaguing his room-mate. Unexpected and original are his devices, as often are the results. But we, like Laury, must drop these childish pranks if he is to have a future. With his ordinate love of anything that runs, and smells like gasoline, with his unfailing fountain of words and his refreshing personality, it seems as if he will make his fortune and fame in the auto business.

We don’t know much about the place, but we do know Old Top, which is much more to our advantage. Although he is the same good-natured Dutchman that he was when first he came, he shows traces of the influence of his vivacious room- mate, Snitz. As a fusser from Switzer, Old Top is some cheese. Credit for this is due to Snitz, for, tutored by him, Nevin has learned the wiles of the feminine nature and has created a furore in Allentown society, and now receives more pink envelopes (smell ’em, gents, smell ’em!) than any other person in the dorms. But do not think that all his homely vir tues have been perverted. Nay, nay, it is not so. Despite the fact that he declares that sixty plus nothing is nothing, he is still an honest man. So honest is he that since his arrival at college he has served faithfully as treasurer of our class and has been entrusted with the sundry sums that have made their way into the treasury and with the vast moneys yet un- paid and has never even attempted to make off with any of them. But, assuming for a moment that Loch escapes from Snitz before he has lost all his own characteristics, how will he end up. We will not offer anything but a negative prediction.

For this we are truly thankful and point with jiride to the Glee Club, as an example of his handiwork. lie labored long and late with them, and to no small degree is the suceess of this year’s club due to his efforts. If he were to confine his music to the accepted instruments there would be no objection — Imt — his experiments in harmony upon the less conventional instruments up to this time have met with disaster. He even tried to train the “Harmony Quartette” so they could carry one tune. Horrible. He is also a motor fiend, and if he is once started there is no stopping him either verbally or actually, unless an accident inter- venes. He is speed personifieil on this subject and resents the least suggestion that “Gus” Merkle is able to beat him. This suggestion is sure to start him talking for an hour or more, so steer clear of it. We can offer nothing but a negative prediction for “Don.” If he is not bunged up in an auto accident or murdered because of his unconventional musical experiments, he should make a success, for he has the stuff.

But Milton, who knew a great deal, said : “Alas, what boots it with incessant care To tend the homely, slighted, shep- herd’s trade. And strictly meditate the thankless Muse? Were it not better done, as others use. To sport with Amaryllis in the shade. Or with the tangles of Neaera’s hair?” So even said our youthful friend, and since then he has given up following cows. But though he has left the cows to come home wagging their tails behind them, he has by no means given up his flute-playing, and is become a regular Pan (Wear-P ver) with the pipes. One of Buff-neck’s characteristics is his fondness for making noise of every shape and form. You can see him at all times in the dorms either playing a tune on his ribs or yodeling merrily or scratch- ing the transom panes with his key, producing an ear-splitting screech. Do you wonder that we feel sure he will be heard from, long after he has left us to go out into the world? If we were to suggest a field of action, we woidd say that he might make a good foreign missionary among the cannibals, for he is too skinny to make good eats and could work out his own salvatio n by furnishing them music for their meals.

Reisner “chum” “Care not for the reward but simply for the truth of your speaking. ” Only once in a century does a Napoleon appear. A Demosthenes or a Bismarck characterizes another epoch, while Henry VIII was the central figure of a great historical period. Mrs. Rorer wrote a cook hook. Never before in the life of the nations have the dominant traits of these great people appeared in one person. Now the seemingly impossible has been accomplished, and Walter L. Reisner, with his pentagonal personality, treads this mundane sphere. But with sad and bowed heads we must admit, yea, with sad and tearful voices we must confess, that there is a darker side to this scintillating blaze of glory. Sadly, we admit this secret. Reisner likes to cook and has a most effeminate love of tidiness. He can, like Henry VHI, talk to the ladies for hours, but mainly on the sub- ject of cooking. You may think that with all of these feminine traces in his nature Reisner never shows the warlike tendencies that also exist. Here is the test. Make a nice long chalk mark on the green burlap on the walls of his room and observe closely. Demosthenes appears first, and in matchless eloquence tells of Reisner’s grievances. Napoleon concocts a superhuman piece of strategy which is carried out by the iron hand of Bismarck. All of this time, Henry VIII is hobnobbing with Mrs. Rorer. What will Reisner do. With his pentagonal personality he should be able to tackle anything from leading an army to teaching Domestic Science, so we leave the whole thing up to Reisner. Millersville, Pa.

But the point is this — this may be Dick’s afternoon tea motto; but, his genuine, hard tooled, daily practice motto isn’t any pale pink fluff like that. His real motto is “Raus mit ’em!” And who is there to say me nay. Schmoyer rarely does other than condemn. His concern seems to be to smash everything; but the remaking after the smash is of no interest to him. He is the pessi- mist of our class. Everything is wrong, and he conceives it his duty to tell us that, without going to the bother of suggesting remedies. Once in a great while he supports some measure, but not often. He likes to bark a few barks for the sake of opposition, and then he takes the consequences. “Rich” is a great orator — has been from a mere boy on up. Sophronia posts a program — Dick is on for an oration Society is postponed — Dick has a key to the hall the oration is delivered to an audience of chairs. This little scene only shows that distinction must result from such ardent and active interest.

Although his jiicture would seem to indicate a jieaee- ahly inelined nature, we grieve to say that, as is often the case, ajiiiearances are deceiving. Without this orator the dinner-hour debates would lose much of their zest, more of their pic- turesqueness, and most of their volume. From whieh faet it is reasonably safe to infer that Arthur will some day make a wonderful stateman. Nevertheless, and notwithstand- ing, Arthur has always been a patri- otic member of our elass. His slogan, calculated to promote class spirit, has ever been “Fellers, we gotta git together. ' ” Whenever he states this fact, his entire countenance lights up with that seraphic look seen only on unsuccessful reformers. Yet Arthur still jierse- veres in this respeet, and undoubtedly will reap his reward — in Heaven probably, for this is a eruel world. But no article about Arthur — not even an obituary — would be complete unless mention were made of his home town. Arthur comes from Reading and does not hesitate to admit it. Nay, even more, he even boasts about it. We, fearing his powers of debate, do not dare to contradict him, and he still labors under his fond illusion. Let us leave him to his sad fate, not, however, without uttering the prayer that he may some day realize his mistake and center his af- fections on a more deserving objeet. Reading, Pa.

In fact he had the real college boy spirit. But there came a time when all this lost its charm — when the string of red St. Valentine’s Day hearts that draped his mantel hung unobserved and meaningless. The Calsmith Stock Company, with the inimitable Anderson (inimitable except by Snyder), came to town and usurped the uppermost position in his thoughts. Schooled in the study of modern actors mid acting by attendance at the Reading Airdrome; where all the biggest hits are shown, our hero, in the capacity of dramatic critic, established headiiuarters at the Lyceum. From this vantage point, surrounded by a coterie of admiring followers, he weekly gave forth his opinion. But though “Skinny” is a man of literary note, he is also an athlete of consideralile ability. We, as well as the Sophs, found that out in our first football game. Besides repeating in the next year’s game, he did service for us in baseball that we have cause to remember. “Skinny” is an interesting talker on nearly every subject from religion to cream-separators. The latter are his hobby, and it is to be depended upon that if he once begins discussing relative merits of the Sharpless and De Laval machines he’ll keep it up all evening. Will he be successful? He’s got the “gift of gab,” so there’s no cpiestion about it. Reading, Pa. Porn at Werner.sville, Pa., November 1, 1893. Prepared at Allentown Preparatory Sebool.

It is different, however, when it comes to being the handsomest student. This is extreme- ly difficult — almost impossible, for no matter what you yourself may think concerning your manly pulchritude, or what the fair sex may think — or say they think — there are some one hundred and seventy-five out of a possible hundred and seventy-seven students each of whom individually claims he fills that handsomest bill — and there is no way of getting a consensus of ojiinions. However, I can go thus far; Reaching out to Old Zionsville, I therefore, by virtue of the authority conferred on me, hereby and with full knowledge of the consefiuences, do select, nominate, name and otherwise determine upon H. L. Snyder, of that city. Now then, Snyder has my vote and his own, which make two. So, ad- mitting, as he does, that “Schnitz” is the handsomest man in college, Mr. Snyder strives earnestly to look the part. Onr regular photographer was not allowed to make this photo- graph. Snyder was afraid he would mutilate his face, so this was “took” by special photographer. Fifth Avenue. We must say this one thing — that Snyder has been a faithful 1915-er. He argues well and in most beautiful language — so say some; others say he is absolutely punk. Far be it from me to strike the general average, but in his future life I am sure he will be very successful either as a lawyer or a side-show barker. Old Zionsville, Pa.

No one has ever been able to determine of just what nationality Hick really is. His English name Ed- ward is belied by his German name Stolzenbach, and both are belied by the Irish cognomen Hickey. The only possible explanation of these pheno- mena is that “ Hick ” must be descended from all nations and all bloods. We next pass on to Edward’s ex- treme modesty. His motto and guiding precept is, “Be courteous and friendly with everybody — but not modest. Modesty won’t get anyone anywhere. ’’ And isn’t it the truth. This world is filled with shrinking violets who might have grown to gorgeous sunflowers but for their innate modesty. And now let us turn to Hick’s native town, Lima, usually put on the map of Ohio for beauty’s sake. Of this metropolis we are told l)y Edward, very modestly again, to l)e sure, “Lima is the best town in the world, bar none. Largest insane asylum in the world, all concrete and no corners. Trollies? Why, these are mere apologies for the cars we have in Lima.” He continues in this strain ad lib till his vocal organs tire. Through all of the above are interspersed tales of the wonderful qualities of Stolzenbach’s “Better — Not” and “Etmore” bread. The future of our beloved Editor-in-chief is easy to predict. In spite of his marvelous intellectuality he will degenerate into a baker. Such is his elected field of endeavor, a noble one, to be sure, provided that he does not some day use the wrong reagent and kill off the whole town of Lima. Lima, Ohio.

His claim to honor and re- nown is his birthplace, which still re- mains the spot of his earthly sojourn, — the ancient and historic city of Ritters- ville. Pa. Ray is thoroughly imbued with pride of his native town and al- ways staunchly defends it against the insulting attacks of certain ill-man- nered persons. lie is never at a loss to find some good in it, and if his public- spiritedness continues we can not help but predict that some day the met- ropolis which he honors by his pres- ence will choose him for that highest station of honor and respon- sibility, Chief of its single fire company. When we review the scholastic records of this scion of German nobility, we can give naught but praise. As an exponent of the noble and elevating art of passing with the least ])ossible work, Ray is without a peer. Moreover he is generall} ' acknowleged to be the most skillful rider of untamed steeds that ever graced the halls of Muhlenberg. Ray modestly explains his endeavors by saying that if he does try to study, he falls asleep before he has fairly started and so he has long since given up the attempt. Ray has two aims in life, to become happily married and also a minister. We can not say which is his greatest desire, but we hope that the one may not interfere with the other. By having such a two-fold aim he again displays his wisdom, for even if disappointed in the one we can hardly believe that he will fail in both. From the foregoing diagnosis it will therefore appear that success is the only possible outcome of this gentleman’s life. Rittersville, Pa. Born at Rittersville, Pa., December 23, 1889.

Werner “ITnlearned men, of books, assume the care.” Alienists tell us that madness re- sults from two causes; a severe physi- cal shock, and the sight of others al- ready afflicted. We do not know whether the bowl-fight of our Freshman year was sufficient to supply the first cause or whether the sight of us about him fulfilled the second condition, but we do know that as long as we have known him Bill’s madness (or shall we call it genius. ) has ever set itself before us. Usually it shows itself in a pseudo- cynical tirade upon established cus- toms, conventions, and traditions, with occasional gleams of intelligence. But we must not slight Werner’s accomplishments, for, besides eating ice-cream, making bail puns, attending the movies, and criticizing things in general. Bill has done some things worth while. As an editor Bill has some reputation, for he put out the best C’alendars and Programs yet jirodnced, and as Assistant Editor of this book has done much to make it a success. Now, after contributing gcTierously to “The Muhlenberg” for three years, he has been elected Editor of that monthly. Bill is a basket- ball man of some repute and in tennis was a big half of the team for two years and so may be said, to have been the whole team. But we caiiiiot hope with mere words to give you a clear appre- ciation of this versatile youth who condescends to live his life among such lowly souls as we are. If you would really know him you must first see him in actual life. So, if not too lazy, go to his room and visit him it will pay you, for Bill’s genius radiates forth from him, and you cannot fail to derive a little of it for yourself. Lelianon, Pa.

Wichmann “ted” “I’m not in the roll of common men.’’ It hajipeiis that there are some men who offer all of themselves to you in yoiir first conversation and from that time on the opinions that we have formed need not he changed. Others, while as friendly and as cordial as the first, persist in concealing their true self from yon ami offer it finally in niggardly jiortions. Of this class the opinions must be constantly changing, and as a consequence there are a great many varying opinions afloat. Wieh- mann is of the latter class, and after a year’s sojourn among us had begun to reveal his true self. If he has been guilty of any great amount of wrongdoing, he has kept it to himself. Ilis triumphs he likewise keeps, and only occasionally do they leak out. His greatest ex})loit was the demand- ing and receiving of recompense for some “eats” that were crabbed from him. The demand is usual, but the jiayment is almost un- precedented. It thus begins to look as if Wiehmann were also a smasher of precedent. Wickie is also some teacher. He is not poor at chess, but in four games he taught a Senior so much about the game that the aforementioned Senior proceeded to trim him in the most decided style. Of course there are those that will lay this victory to the Senior’s superior mentality, Init we think otherwise and repeat that Wickie is some teacher. He is looking forward to medicine as his future. We think that he will succeed and are inclined to believe from the “incident of the stolen eats” that he will have the smallest number of dead accounts of any M.D. in Rochester. Rochester, N. Y.

Levi Yiengst belongs to the last class. From the time he innocently and unsuspectingly wore a derby on poster night, an act unprecedented in the annals of the college, he has had fame, or rather notoriety, pushed, shoved, and heaped upon him. One such act would have been enough on the part of ordinary mortals, but for Levi it did not suffice, so he followed it up next night with another deed of daring. At the dead of night, clad in football togs, he sneaked stealthily about in search of the other half of the Lebanon County Club who had mysteriously disappeared. With true class spirit he liegan to send out the alarm that the Sophs were up and doing, by rousing classmates in such effective ways as spilling alarm clocks in their faces as they slept. Fortunately the matter ended in the return of the missing member of the club and Levi was able to sleep once more in peace. All this took place in his first week and it can readily lie imagined to what an extent his renown has increased since then. To get a more definite idea of Yiengst’s deeds (and misdeeds), we must refer you to his record, by which you will see how war-like Levi’s nature is. Moreover, when you realize that he expects to become a minister, you will agree that Charlemagne, who converted the Saxons with the sword, will have nothing on Levi and his probable methods of conversion.

Young, forsaking the Specials, decided to fight under the banner of 1915 . The Ministers viewed his coining with fear, for great tales of his baseball fame sjiread around and, like all tales, gained in the passing. No doubt, even at that early day, they saw their hopes of winning the Pagan- Minister game begin to vanish. Young is somewhat of a chemist, and, as developed in the lecture room, holds some decided views on the be- havior of €2115(011) and Peruna. Lack of space forbids us to quote his mas- terly arguments as to the identity of these two articles, but we must ask you to bear with us in the belief that thev were valid. The value of Young in the Pagan-Minister basketball game can- not be over-estimated, and there is no doubt that much of the Pagan success was due to his efforts. But despite the manly accomplishments that have preceded, we cannot help but think that there is a gentler, more sentimental side to his nature that has hitherto been concealed. Occasicn- ally we witness the usual far-away look that is followed by the reminiscent smile that betokens much to those who know. H is future is doubtful, but if Miss Whoeversheis finally captures him there is no doubt that the name of Mark S. Young will be heard throughout the depth and the breadth of this glorious nation of ours. Such is the power of woman. Allentown, Pa. Born at Siegfried, Pa., January 5, 1894.

The advent of a new collegiate year brought with it an unusually large number of Lehigh Valley and Berks County rustics, in company with many other high school and prep school graduates who months before had boasted to fond parents and awed sweethearts that “I’m goin’ to Muhlenberg College to school next year.” Accordingly the newcomers came on so “high a horse” that green buttons, modest wearing apparel, with various other admoni- tory rules and regulations were not sufficient to make them realize that intellectually they were still in their “swaddling clothes” and should be seen and not heard. However, thumpings for the thick- headed, midnight walks for the girlers, and “Louisiana baths” for the indolent were more than enough to let them feel the power of the unconqnered Sophomores. In the last and fiercest bowl-fight in the history of Muhlenberg, the Sophomores were out numbered by the Freshmen two to one. And yet on that ever memorable day of October first, amid the driz- zling rain and soft yellow clay, the Freshmen were beaten by the grand score of 36-20. Thus the 1916 class went down in history as being the only class at Muhlenberg that ever won two bowl-fights. IIow about other work for the college: athletics, programs, calen- dars, Glee Club, and most of all, true college spirit? Certainly, every one was pleased with the football programs. And the calendars; to quote many who are able to criticise: “They are the best thing of the kind I ever saw.” Five men are on the Glee Club and two on the quartette. Greater than these is the true college spirit which the 1916 Class has always displayed for the dear old Alma Mater. Much has been done but greater is yet to come. — 73 — gkria f gfassi SOPHOMORE CLASS Motto — “Esse quam videri.” Colors — Orange and Black. Flower — Red Rose. First Term E. rl E. Witmer M. E.

Shortly after their arrival they brought them- selves into prominence by making a grand rush on some of the fair ground officials during fair week. In the bowl fight with the Sophs, the Freshmen battled most heroically. They went into the fight blindly but bravely. On account of their lack of knowledge concerning the inside of the game, they lost out in the second half. But throughout the fight such a ferocity was displayed that the college authorities, some of whom witnessed the struggle, decided to abolish such brutality forever after. After the fight the next notable event was the annual football game with the Sophs. For days in advance both teams could be seen training for the conflict. The longed-for day arrived and found both teams eager for the fray. The whistle blew and the fight was on. The Freshmen kept the ball in their ])ossession and slowly but surely smashed their way down the field. The five yard line was reached and the signal was given that was to bring victory to their side, but an accident occurred. The ball was funililed and, ])icked up by a Soph, was carried the whole length of the field. The Sophs had won through a fluke. When the call for varsity men was given the Freshmen sent men on the field who were willing and able to defend their Alma Mater. The Freshman class will always be proud of the warriors she has produced. In literary work also the Freshmen have been successful. In the literary society the Freshmen have taken a prominent part. Even the “Muhlenberg,” the official literary organ of the College, has received frequent contributions from one of their number. In all phases of College activity the Freshmen have acquitted themselves in a praiseworthy manner. They are proud of their Alma Mater and have shown themselves to be willing sons in the furthering of the glory and honor of Muhlenberg. — 81 iarfa f 48f flfasd FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS First Term I’rcsident Pro Teni Secretarj " and Treasurer Pro Teni J.

Even before we reached the switcli, stately Seniors, jul)ilant Juniors, and sullen So])hs were literally clearing out their litter that we might have room to lay our heads and well-stuffed trunks. We got on the job at once. We gave our a])proval to the Allentown F ' air, and deigned to kiss the brunettes. Those were dark days. Next we got the football team in condition to beat F. and IVI., and a quarter of that team belonged to our class. This done, we felt we needed a rest. So we — 92 — 1915 AS FRESHMEN krfa f 48ff ilIii5S sent tlie noisy Sophs away for a few days, had ourselves inatrien- lated, elected Loch treasurer, and went to sleep. We awoke to find our strenuous President (Reisner, not Roosevelt) leading us on to the mid-year’s. This obstacle we conquered with oiir inexhaustible store of knowledge and a large amount of imagination. With the l)lase carelessness of a gambler we put a few tenors on the Glee Club, and gave it a good bass for further developments. Then we livened up “The Muhlenberg’’ with some real literature (right off the reel) and sustained the joke-cohimns with our wit. Did such stuff stagger us? Not a whit! We had the honor of being the only Freshman FRESHMAN FOOTBALL TEAM n fenfeerg Coffeqe I class to hold its banquet on the campus. We feasted well (ask Dr. Haas), but selfishness is no alias of ours. Our hearts went out in sympathy to the poor brutes that roamed the campus, and we fed them too. Our portion of the track team attracted much attention. In the college play our representatives, male and female, won great applause by their grace, agility, and wonderful impersonations. Our “class,” as Freshmen, was truly undeniable. FRESHMAN BASKETBALL TEAM — 95 — m V ' 1 f f ■I 1 -I f . N -S f V V ' 0 ? 1 V As Sophomores As Sophs we were first entrusted with the care and supervision of the Freshies. We chided, rebuked, and chastened them; so tliat now we can almost point with pride to the results of onr handiwork. Our posters, the last in the history of Muhlenberg, were put up for their guidance, and a few Freshies most kindly aided us in the work. We gave their proud hearts a fall by defeating — 96 — SOPHOMORE banquet OF 1915 krfa Tl)c 48ffj fgi55 their crack team with a handful of men who had never played foot- ball before. We set a new standard by the quality and quantity of our calendars and our football programs. The athletic endeavors of our class were attested by the fact that fully two-thirds of our men received their numerals during this year, and a majority of these also received college monograms or numerals. Realizing that tradi- tions help to foster college spirit, we established the custom of wearing class hats, an institution which the present Sophomore class is con- tinuing. — 98 VIEWS OF FRESHMAN AFTERNOON As Juniors We returned for our third year with all childish things put away, and with a stern resolve to coiKpier all profs and wise men in knowledge and in argument, or flunk in the attempt. We haven’t flunked yet. Our class furnished a greater number of scrubs than in previous years and also some good Varsity material in football. But our achievements this year have been intellectual rather than athletic. We almost alone snjiported “The Muhlenberg,” and won all til l •ee prizes in its short story contest. Four live men from our class are members of the Student Council, and four budding journa- lists represent us on the Press Club. Many of onr class also hold responsible positions on “The Muhlenberg” staff, in student liody affairs, and on athletic teams. We need hardly mention the immense furore in athletic and professorial circles that the announcement of our Pagan-Minister football game caused. It is unnecessary to recall the intense excitement and enthusiasm that flooded the floor when the Pagans beat the Ministers after a hard-fought game of basketball. In this awful carnage the strenuous efforts of the nine- teen odd scrubs are much to be eommended. In conclusion, as a last proof of onr worthiness to njihold the glorious traditions of iMuhlenberg College, we need only ask you to continue reading and see for yourself the masterjiiece of our class, the 1915 Ciarla. — 100 — PAGANS AND MINISTERS gkrfa T 4Sffi «fa5sl THE STAFF OF THE NINETEEN FIFTEEN ClARLA Editor-in-chief Edward H.

Profiting by the experiences of the })revious Ansflngs, a clear day was chosen for the game and it was decided to go to some jjlace where the chances of getting stuck in the mud were small. In the afternoon the traditional Minister-Pagan game was played. This can best be described by the following quotation from the “Demo- crat” of the morning after: The annual game of baseball between the Ministers and Pagans of the Junior Class of Muhlenberg (’ollege was played on Muhlenberg field yesterday. It was rightly termed a comedy of errors. Prof. Simpson was undoubtedly the hero of the day, when taking his life in his hands he accei)ted the jjosition of umj)ire. His po.sition as the head of the dei)artment was all that saved him from the clutches of the infuriated ministers, who thought that they had the game well in hand after the second inning. The ))layers, as usual, were attired in all kinds of grotesque uniforms. Reisner resembled a Scotch highlander, Smeltzer a Civil War veteran, and Freed a Pole. The sensation of the game was Kauffman’s masterly j)laying of right field. A glove was entirely too uncertain for him and a ten-quart bucket was used instead. The Score: Pagans Smeltzer, 3b, p . .

The “beef” collected on the football field at the end of the first week, comprising new men and old, was really appalling. Two-hnndred -pound huskies seemed to be so niimerons as to become commonjilace, and whenever three or four of the aforementioned gentlemen got mixed up in a scrimmage, the ])ile had the appearance of a baby mountain. The qualities of these arrivals, however, were not confined to weight alone, for speed was there in abundance. Liglitning, well-greased, is the only thing to which some of the men should be compared. Thus, so far as the primary recpiisites of a team were concerned, Muhlenberg was very well fixed even before college itself opened. Then as the old boys started to trail back, the enthusiasm and spirit began to grow until, inside of three weeks, the majority of us were convinced that the All-American team would surely have to go some to be in our class. Of course, we made no mention of these opinions of ours for fear that many of our opponents, hearing of this phenomenal state of affairs, might cancel their dates and leave us in the lurch. On September 27 came the first trial of our strength, when we ran up against an institution located at Easton bearing the euphoni- ous name of a great man, Lafayette. The results of the fray, viewed in the cold gray light of the morning after, justified our expectations and excited more fond hopes. The far-famed enemy had failed to do more than hold us to a tie, 7-7, while the papers said that in the second half we had completely outplayed them. (Our fellows said we had done so all through the game — our fellows.) Here is evidently a case where deeds speak louder than words, and we will therefore let that score make a little oration to you all b} itself. We cannot, however, refrain from respectfully calling to your attention the fact -114- M nhfenBera j that one of the illustrious members of our more illustrious class of 1915, Reisner by name, was the man who ran 40 yards, in spite of a game leg, and put the ball within striking distance of the opposing goal-line. Next on the program came New York University. Gentle reader, what we did to that representative of the metropolis is shame- ful to relate. It should not be published broadcast in this manner, but duty compels us to admit that N. Y. U. was snowed under by an avalanche, to the tune of 54 to 0. To say the least, it was discourte- ous of us to go over there with our team at their invitation and then walk over, under, and through them during the entire four periods. Our “fetchin’ up” seemed to have been neglected. After an enforced rest of two weeks, owing to the fact that we were unable to fill an open date on October 11, we were again ready to brave the lion in his den. The lion in this particular case happened to be Gettysburg, but before the game was over it turned out to be the goat instead of the lion. As a goat, however, it did some rather vicious butting before it was finally tied up, with the result that some of our men were far from being in the pink of condition after the game. Nevertheless all’s well that ends well, and we ended on the long end of a 20-6 score. The 6 was a mistake due to the inter- ception of one of our forward passes and a 90-yard run by Mahaffie. Accordingly we repeat the words of the poet Tennyson, “We should worry. ” During this entire week the time and energy of the Coach and team was devoted to the perfecting of a system of play that would be able to beat Lehigh if at all possible. The energies of the student body were similarly directed, and if spirit and enthusiasm ever de- served to win a football game, ours did. But we were calculating on playing Lehigh a football game. Instead we were initiated into the wonderful mysteries of a new sport which resembled water-polo more closely than any other game known to the public at large. The — 115 — krfa f 48f ttfligsl ])layers wore football togs, but Providence knows that bathing suits would have been vastly more appropriate. The field which unfolded itself to our delighted (?) gaze on this memorable afternoon looked like the Dead Sea. The few hundred Muhlenberg suj)porters who had braved the elements to see the game wagered on the depth of various swimming-pools which lay before them, as they sat on the stands with the water from their neighbors’ umbrellas trickling down their backs or dropping in their shoes. By the time the game was scheduled to begin, everybody was convinced that it would be played in boats, or that the players would at least be supplied with life- preservers. However, we shortly discovered that such was not to be the case. No first-aids were furnished, beyond oodles of rosin. On the very first play an unfortunate Lehigh man landed in the mud with such force that his breathing apparatus was te mporarily put out of eommission until syni})athizers washed out his i)ii)es and wiped off the upper coating of mud from his j)hysiognomy. The men of both teams slid and slip])ed and slop])ed and slushed about the field until the fact that they moved was the only thing that distinguished them from the mud on the field. IMoreover, this was extremely unfortunate for us, as the heavy ground did not allow our liglit but fast baekfield a chance to get started, while the mere beef on Lehigh’s backfield just naturally ke])t on going, to our disadvantage and dismay. These adverse mudiferous conditions spelt defeat, the first of the season. In spite of a magnificent defense j)ut up by our men on our four-yard line, Lehigh managed to slide Crichton over the goal-line for the only touchdown of the game. So have the Fates decreed it — 7-0. In Pace Recpiiescat. After this slight and temporary reverse in the fortunes of our Ship of State, we again started on our victorious way. Lebanon Valley, misled into believing that their football team might be able to do something with us, came over to Allentown on the first day of November. We greeted them with open arms — and sent them home — 116 — Ikrfa f 48f fo55 with empty hands. Those who mathematically incline said the score at the end of the game was 35-0. But let us hie us hence to greater things. Now comes the big week. The rumor reached Allentown that a college at Lancaster, laboring under the cognomen of Franklin and Marshall, was flying a pennant on which the magic words were in- scribed “On to Muhlenberg. ” All reports had it that F. and M. was thirsting for revenge for the defeats of the past two years, and was determined to give no quarter to us. Yea, verily, this manifestation of spirit in Lancaster cordd not but find a counter spirit aroused in Allentown. The chapel was daily converted into a place where “the heathen rage and the lions roar,” to quote Dr. Wackernagel; that is, in plain English, cheer-practice was held daily. On Wednes- day night the student body attended the Lyceum in a body, while the team occupied boxes. On PTiday night a monster smoker was held in the Commons at which we heard prophets and preachers, and even some fakers. When the smoker ended the spirit was so much in evidence that it overflowed all obstacles. And then the fatal day came. When F ' . and M. appeared they were given a warm reception — in fact, it was even hot. It rained intermittently throughout the game, at times even poured. But the ardor of the howling mob would not be cooled, while Muhlenberg eould not be stopped. In fairness to the visitors it must be confessed that for the first quarter they had us on the run. A fumbled punt recovered by one of their men put us on the defensive until a long run by Henninger again brought us out of danger. Near the end of the second quarter a beautiful forward pass to Hubbard gave us the first touehdown. This seemed to take the starch out of F. and jVI. and in the second half three more touchdowns were made, the final score being 25-0. Thus did Nemesis avenge the defeat of 33-0 five years ago. Needless to say, F ' . and M. w as quite peeved, to put it mildly, — 118 — at the outcome of the game. They frankly admitted, however, that we had some team, which shows that they had more or less good judg- ment after all. None of them sj)oke of the haimer which had flopped in the breeze during the week and it was generally surmised that it just disappeared. Coach Mayser, it is rumored, sent a telegram to Tjancaster after the game, built on Caesar’s ])lan, “Veni, vidi, victus sum”, which, being translated means, “I came, I saw them, I got beat up.” This was the state of affairs in F. and M.’s camp after the game, but how entirely different was it in Muhlenberg ' s. A “Fee-rade” downtown came first. After supper the men celebrated in divers ways and methods at various })laces of interest throughout town. After thinking and talking it over Sunday, a bonfire was built Monday and lit by Captain Skean at 8:15 Monday evening. Afterwards there were “eats” served in the Commons for patriotic Muhlen- bergienses, and the victory slowly but surely faded away into the past. During the week following our victory over our ancient rivals, practice was very light, yet, behold, when the next Saturday arrived and the Indian Reserves with it, our team continues its steam-rolling contract, and i)roceeds to flatten out the redskins to the tune of 48-0. The game was hardly more than an uninterrupted march up and down the field, and even when the scrubs entered there was no great ditference in onr ground-gaining ability. The scalp-hunters were easily bounced on their respective ears in the same style of game in which they were sui)posed to excel. Once again we refer to the poet, “Let the dead i)ast bury its dead.” We will attend to the live past. And now, gentle reader, uncover your head and speak softh% for yon are in the presence of great sorrow. A great bereavement has overtaken us and we wish all due respect to l)e shown to the suf- ferers. On Saturday, November 2 2, the team and a goodly section of the student body traveled to Lewisburg, the home of Bucknell, and was beaten by a team which was outplayed in every quarter. 120 — n fenfeerq Coffege I Our team made 21 first downs as compared with tlieir 9, yet accident and unlucky })reaks time after time threw us hack from their goal line. The final score was 14-( in favor of the enemy, l)ut these figures leave volumes unsaid. Several times the hall ajjproached within fifteen yards of the hostile goal-line, yet always an unforeseen accident lost us our chance to score further. The game was a thriller, full of throl )S, hut the luck was against ns, and Muhlenherg, for the last time of the season and also oidy the second time, tasted the l)itter waters of defeat. She succumhed to the onslaughts of the harharian hordes assisted hy the Fates. The company will please })ass around the hier in silence. Last hut not least comes the Thanksgiving Day game with Alhright. These untutored natives of Myerstown made their dehut in Allentown inflicted with the idea of heating us. Now it is imjjolite to contradict, and accordingly no one made a move to dispel their fond illusions before the game started. After it once got under way, the dream just naturally faded out, although during the first five minutes when Alhright scored a field goal if seemed to them to he permanent. However, they vere soon rudely and forcibly awakened, for in spite of all opposition of force or argument we gradually as- seml)led an imposing array of four touchdowns and a field goal, after which Alhright decided to relimiuish their fond hopes. Benfer was in reality the All)right team, and his lack of support saved Muh- lenherg from a harder game. Thus ended the football season, so far as the actual playing of games was concerned. But there is one more event which belongs to the football season over which we dare not pass. This is the football banquet, the crowning event of the season. It was held at the Antler’s Home on December 15th, and was surely some banquet. At this time the letters were awarded and the sweaters and blankets distributed. Also Hubbard was elected to succeed Skean as captain of next’s year’s team. Thus ended the season of 1913, the most successful and the best in every way that Muidenberg has ever known. — m — ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Incorporated Officers President Howard S.

SKEAN CAPTAIN FULLBACK “Buck” Skeaii held the honor of piloting the greatest team that Muhlenberg ever had, but the responsibility of his position did not weigh so heavily upon him as to detract from his playing. When- ever we were in a tight hole and needed a few yards, Skean was the man who was called on to deliv(n- the goods and it was seldom indeed that he failed. On defense he was of great assistance in backing up the line and always tried to fill the team with his own spirit of fight. He has played his last game for Muhlenberg and has left a position that will be hard to fill. — 123 — frei)p:i{ick a. iip:uer RIGHT HALFBACK Heuer is one of the four men wlio have played tlieir last game for ] Inhlenherg. He was nnfortnnate this year in the matter of injuries and was able to play in only a few games during the entire season. He showed his worth last year, however, and it is with deepest regret that we think of his football days as over. JAiMES R. ELEXER LEFT TACKLE “Big Jim” Elexer surely did tear loose with a lot of havoc and destrnetion in the ojiponent’s line whenever he took the notion. He seemed to take an almost insane delight in fooling the stands and opponents till the test came and then bracing np and stopping every thing that started his way. This was his last year. ISLVRTIN I). pt:ther()le CENTER “Stonewall” Fetherolf fought for two j ears as a scrub for his place as a varsity center and when he finally reached his goal he made good. He had to play with his brains, since Nature had not endowed him as well with physical strength as others, and without a doubt he was the headiest center that Muhlenberg has ever had. It will seem strange indeed next year to fail to hear Fetherolf’s “Shift right. Shi-i-ift.” — 124 BENJAMIN A. HUBBARD ) Cfsiss LEFT END “Ben” Iluhbard, Captain-elect for 1914, liekl down the posi- tion of left end in the best ] ossible style during the past season. He was very clever in drifting throngb interference and getting his man. On offense he was of great assistance to the team, for the fact that he was the most reliable man on the receiving end of a forward pass is iindis})iited. CLAUDE M. LAUDENSLAGER QUA RTEIi BACK Eor a small man “Laiidy” surely did some damage whenever he went into a game. He ran the team in a consistent style and made very few errors of judgment. On defense he was a deadly and sure tackier and made every effort count. WALTER L. REISNER QUARTERBACK Reisner, the Varsity quarter, improved on his past reputation this last year. He was heady and full of pep and usuall} kept the team on the jump. When it came to the crisis of a game one could count on seeing Reisner running about behind the line filling fhe men with the su})erabundance of fight that he possessed. — 126 — D. FRANKLIN DAY t h Cffll55 LEFT GUARD “Pud” Day, the first of the Philadelphia quartette, surely made a name for himself during his first year at Muhlenberg. He even earried his matchless good nature with him on the football field, and his fiery red head was always in the middle of every line play. He is a comer, and we warn you to watch him next year. LOUIS J. HAYES RIGHT END “Louie” Hayes is another of the men who left all of their Broth- erly Love on the side lines when the game began and made things very lively for all opposing men when they came into the little por- tion of the field under his jurisdiction. In his realm he was a stern judge and severely ])nnished all who tresjiassed across his boundaries. WILLIAM L. CASKEY LEFT HALFBACK “Kidder” Caskey was unfortunate in being kept out of a few games this year because of his injuries, but when he played he showed great promise; and there is no doubt that before he leaves Muhlen- berg he will leave a record that any backfield man will be proud of. J. HOWARD. BERRY LEFT HALFBAC ' K “Nig” Berry was undoubtly the star of the Philadelphia bunch and did mneh to give them their reputation. He depends somewhat upon his Sliced to gain ground, but this is mingled with the finest sidestepping that has been seen for a long time. He has several long runs to his credit which he made after eluding five or more tacklers. He did the punting and dro])-kicking. — ISS ARTIII H I). RODERICK RIGHT GUARD “Roddy” always played a hard consistent game, and clearly has demonstrated his ability as a line man. He was always on the job and worked at top sjieed from whistle to whistle. On offense he leaves a hole that yon conld drive a wagon through. CHARLES F. COPLEY RIGHT TACKLE “(’has,” although he was assigned merely one jiosition to plajy nsnally tried, and succeeded, in jilaying every jiosition from center to end. If there was any man on his side of the line that had more than he conld handle C’ojiley was right there to help him out and still handle his own man in the usual style. THOMAS J. BRENNAN FULLBACK “Patty” is another one of the men who can always be depended ni)on when there is a gain to be made. Although he was merely substitute for the bigger part of the season, his showing in the games he played will tend to rest onr minds on the fullback position for next year. — 130 WILLIAM S. RITTER RIGHT GUARD “Bill” Ritter, an Allentown man, filled the shoes of the right guard in about the best possible manner this year. He was heady, aggressive, and eapable, and with this combination there is small doubt that a man will fill his position well. He has two more years to play and will do great good before he leaves. PETE HENNINGER RIGHT HALFBACK “Fete” Henninger was laid up at the very start of the season by a bad knee which kept him from showing his true form in the games he played. However, he did well enough to gain the nick- name of “Jackrabbit” and should surprise some of the natives by his showing during the coming season. E. J. DETLING RIGHT END “Jim ” Detling was another of the men who took care of the right wing of the line and he “seen his duty and done it noble. ” Although only a hTeshman, he did some stunts on the field that older men would have liked to have done. Jimmie’s future appears very bright to us. FRED IE SEIDEL giarfa 1 LEFT GUARD As a working partner for “Roddy,” it wonld l)e hard to find a l)etter man that Seidel. With his 200 pounds of beef hitting one side of the line and “Roddy’s” 203 landing on the other side, is there any cause for wonder why his smiling face usually bobbed up from the middle of the mass after a line phmge had shattered itself against onr defense? WILLIAM 11. IIOLLENBAUGII LEFT GUARD Whenever it hapi)ened that Seidel was injured, we could always count on Ilollenbangh filling his position in very creditable manner, lie still shows lack of experience in college football, but we think that next year will round him into some of the l)est line material at iVInhlenberg. ( ARL A. ERICKSON G ENTER INIuhleiiberg was indeed fortunate in centers this year, and to sn])})lement the work of “Stonewall hetherolf we had Pop Erickson, who was as reliable as any man could be expected to be. liis passing in the Lehigh game where the field was ankle-deep in mud was unsurpassed, and not one bad })ass was chalked up against him during this game.

Hayes — 138 BASKETBALL SEASON-191319U Muhlenberg’s basketball season opened with a game with Phila- delphia College of Pharmacy, which we won by heaving the ball over the rafters for a 23-21 victorjL An extra period was needed to break a tie and to demonstrate our superiority conclusively. The following evening we held the University of Pennsylvania five to a 24-17 score on their own floor. Our passing excelled theirs throughout the game, but better shooting kept them a few points ahead at all times. Although “merely a practice game for Penn,’’ this good showing gave Penn a shock and instilled confidence into our men. Taking advantage of the absence of Hubbard and Ritter from our line-up, Susquehanna University beat ns in the first home game of the season to the tune of 33-21. Copley’s foul shots and Affler- bach’s field goals saved us from total annihilation. Our comparatively raw team was no match for Lehigh’s veterans, most of whom opposed ns last year. The result was that Lehigh was able to inflict upon us the first decisive defeat that we have suffered at their hands; and their 72-21 victory caused them unbounded sur- prise and joy. Not content with the absence of Hubbard and Ritter, Fate and a rusty nail removed Copley from the Lafayette game, and a conse- quent lack of team work was resjionsible for a 44-13 defeat at Easton. Our men played very creditably. While the team was still working into shape, Seton Hall managed to defeat us, 23-17, at South Orange. The game was wel l contested thronghout, and our men showed a marked improvement in team- work and passing. Leisy played a strong game both defensively and offensively. Twenty-four hours later we met Pratt Institute at Brooklyn, and went under with the short end of a 27-18 score. LTp to the last few minutes the game was close with both teams neck-and-neck for victory, but the Pratt five finally nosed out ahead. Over in Jersey we next met defeat, when Rutgers College caged 24 to our 14 points. Our passing in this contest was better than in 139 — gkrfn «f Tftc 48tff ttass any previous game this season, and only onr tossing was a bit off eolor. Bill Ritter played a snappy game, and scored half of our field goals. On the night before Washington’s Birthday we came into onr own, and defeated Lafaj ette, 2()-20. It was the best game, the largest crowd, the biggest attendance of alumni, of the season. It killed the slump, and made Allentown hum for several days. Copley and Ritter starred. The only doidjtfnl thing about the Lebanon hdley game was the number of points we wonld beat them by, and forty minutes of play gave the answer — 39-22. Afflerbach played a magnificent, dashing game, was high man in field goals, but in the very last play of the evening was badly bumped and compelled to give up basket- ball for the rest of the season. Between the halves of the Fresh-Soph game, Muhlenberg held a serimmage with the local Y. iVI. C. A. team in a contest replete with sensational shots and })henonienal fonl-tossing. The two teams were never more than five j)oints apart, and the suspense was nerve- racking. Score, 25 21. The last home game was merely a toss-up to onr basket. The Fhiladel{)hia College of Pharmacy five were outweighed, outplayed, and badly beaten. The score, 44-15, scarcely does justice to the rapidity with which the ball sailed through the net. Louis Hayes, shifted from guard to Afflerbach’s place at forward, showed most satisfactorily that he could also shoot. In a cosv little cage at Lebanon Valiev we were handed a lemon t. O t. with an annoying inscription, 28-27, on it. ’Twas the closest score of the season, and a most thrilling affair throughout. Detling was constanth " on the jump and played a strong defensive game. Next day the season closed with a defeat at Selinsgrove, ad- ministered by the Susquehanna Universit} " stars. Considering that we were up against one of the best teams of the State, and that on our home floor we had merely held them to the score of 33-21, it must be said that the defeat was not a reversal of form, but a proof of improvement in the face of disheartening handicaps. Score, 39-21. — 140 — THE TRACK TEAM, 1914 krffl Captain. . Manager. Coach. . . . David H. Bucks Martin D. Fetherolf George McCaa Track Record, 1913 The Penn Relay Event, No. 28.

Vreeland, Special — 142 — I tec fcnfeerq TRAC K SEASON , 1913 The Penn Relays Muhlenberg opened her track season at the 19th Annual Relay Carnival held at the University of Pennsylvania, April 26, 1913, in which her relay team, composed almost entirely of new material, won fourth place. Karl Loser was the only runner of last year who com- peted. Vreeland ran the first quarter mile for Muhlenberg and fin- ished in third place. Huer, in the second quarter, ran an excellent race and finished second. Loser finished the third quarter in the same position. Dietz the last runner, held second place until the hundred yard mark, when he was passed by both St. John’s and Gettysburg, who won second and third places respectively, the latter just nosing out Muhlenberg. Franklin and Marshall finished first with a lead of about eight yards. It was the fastest quarter mile a relay team from Muhlenberg ever ran. The winning time was 3:33 over against 3:37f of the preceding year. The weather was ideal and all the events of the day were extremely interesting, especially the exciting dashes and hurdle races. The Gettysburg Meet The Muhlenberg track team met their old rival collegians from the battlefield town, May 13, 1913. The Gettysburgians, coming here with the expectation of wiping out the stinging defeat which they received from the Cardinal and Gray in last year’s dual meet, barely realized their expectations in the final score of 65 to 60. Under fair weather conditions, with the track in excellent shape, and a fair crowd present to cheer on the athletes, the Muhlenberg “leggers” broke three records. Two of the new records were hung up by Rahn, who won the two events in which he competed, the broad and high jumps. In the high jump he cleared the bar at 5 feet, 7 inches, the former record being 5 feet, 3i inches. He also did three inches better than — 14s — the former record in the broad ,jiimp, leaping 20 feet, 7 inches. Cap- tain Skean created a new mark in the discus throw, l ettering his j)revions mark of 107 feet, 3 inches, l)y 4 feet, 7 inches, hurling the discus 111 feet, 10 inches. However, he did not show his true form in the shot put and hammer throw and these two events were won by visiting athletes, whereas the Muhlenberg supporters had pinned their hopes on Skean or Reisner coming through with both these field events. Reisner was discinalified in the hammer throw, by reason of his inability to keep within the seven foot circle. It looked like a runaway race for the visitors when they cap- tured firsts in the first five events, but our athletes came back strong in the four succeeding events, Rahn capturing the high jump, Skean the discus throw, Bucks the two mile run, and Rahn the broad jump ' . There was a good finish in the 220 yard dash and it looked as if Weber was going to win but Knlj) breasted the tape several inches . ahead of the Muhlenberg runner. Hul)bard cleared the bar at 9 feet, 9 inches, the winning height, in the pole vault, but his hands took the bar with him. In the vault-off for second place he cleared the bar with ease at that height. The Inter-( lass Meet The classes of iVInhlenberg (Vdlege showed great enthnsiasm and s])irit in their inter-class track meet held May 10, 1913. For several weeks every athlete of the various classes appeared on the track trying his skill and strength in each of the fourteen events. The beautiful cup which was donated b; Prof. Reese and which was to become the pro})erty of the class winning the highest number of points added still greater life and enthusiasm todhe competition. The contest was closely fought and during the entire meet the number of points that the different classes had scored were nearly the same. The final ontcome of the meet was not decided till the last event and the competition was so keen that it was possible for the last event to decide in favor of three classes. The final score of the meet was: Seniors, 37; Juniors, 34; Sophomores, 32; and 23 for the Freshmen. lU — ■ iartg f 48{ Middle States Intercollegiate Track Meet The first Middle States Intercollegiate track meet was held at Lafayette College, Easton, May 17, 1913, and was attended by Muhlenberg’s entire track team. This was the first time that most of them were thrown into real competition but, nevertheless, the showing that they made was creditable, although the number of points scored was small. The only events in which we scored were the High Jump and the Mile Run. Dietz, who took fourth place in the mile, ran the liest race of his career, and the time that he made was excellent. Rahn, the only other man to score for Muhlenberg, took the High Jump very easily, when he beat out the man from Swarthmore by clearing 5 feet lYi inches. The other men, while they failed to score, made very good showings and have gained the experience that will make them more dangerous in the future. The Lafayette Meet Muhlenberg lost lier first dual meet with Lafayette liy a score of ()53 to 4()H. Considering the strength of the visitors, Muh- lenlierg made a good showing, winning the shot-put, mile run, broad jump, and HSO yard run, besides scoring a tie in the running high jump. In this event Muhlenberg was unfortunate, as Rahn was suf- fering from a badly sprained ankle, sustained early in the meet. Weber, the lively little sprinter, ran his best race of the season in the 220, finishing in 24 flat. The crowds of spectators both pro and con were startled when the judges announced “Weber second,” and the sympathies all went out to the gritty little runner. Bucks again fell down in his race with the speedy Lafayette two-niiler. While Muhlenberg was defeated, its athletes broke two records when Skean did 41 feet 10 inches in the shot-put, and when Vreeland took the 880 yard run in 2:0()i f. n feafeerq ttoffe qe ■u COACH McCAA The unexpected resignation of Coach Kelly, in the early part of March, caused the glowing prospects for a suc- cessful year of athletics for 1914-1915 to grow dim. For the last three years we have been so accustomed to having the Coach Peerless train our teams that his resignation seemed to insure disaster. The Athletic Association started immediately to remedy the difficulty and, after a long and thor- ough investigation of more than a score of ap])licants, decided uj)on George McCaa, of Lafayette, ’10, as coach. The excellent reports and re- cords that have preceded Mr. McCaa have dispelled the feeling of uncer- tainty that was growing apace. He was born at Wilkes-Barre, Pa., March 8, 1884, and graduated from Wilkes-Barre High School in 1904. He entered Lafayette in the fall of the same year and became a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. He soon made a name for himself as an all-around athlete but was forced to leave school in the middle of his Sophomore year. He returned to Lafayette in 1907 and graduated, with the degree of Mining Engineer, in 1910. During his Senior year he was assistant coach to Folwell, who had charge of athletics at La- fayette at that time. He was an all-around athlete and won his “L” in the major sports at Lafayette. Henry M. Edwards, Jr., Coach of Lafayette Baseball Team during the seasons of 1910 and 1911, says of him: “Mr. McCaa is best known as a football player. It is my opinion that he is no less a basketball man than he is a football man and no less a track man than a baseball man. In all, Mr. McCaa ranks high among the best all-around athletes we have in the East.” During his last two years in college he was picked as Second All-American Fullback by Walter Camp. Especially in his Senior year, this decision was disputed and such prominent newspapers as “The New York Sun,” “The Philadelphia Record,” and “The Phila- delphia Press” took decided exception to Camp’s decision and picked him as First All-iVmerican Fullback. George E. McLinn, Sport- ing Editor of the “Philadelphia Press,” said of him at this time: “I, without hesitation, choose Mr. McCaa for a position on the All- American Eleven of the ‘Philadelphia Press.’ Few men, during the season of 1909, perfected the forward pass as he did. As a punter he compared with such men as Captain Coy, of Yale, Allerdice, of Michigan, and Manot, of Harvard. He was a sure drop kicker and goal kicker and a born leader of men.” He was also a ten-second man in the hundred and often made the high hurdles in less than sixteen. In 1910 he was e lected coach at Whitman College, Walla Walla, Washington, where, “taking a team of inexperienced men, he de- veloped a machine which stood well with the best in the North- west.” In 1911, graduate coaching being adopted at Whitman, he accepted the position as coach at the New Hampshire State Col- lege. He left here in the early part of October to coach Lafayette where he remained until he accepted the position at Muhlenberg. — 148 — THE EASTON MEET The first indoor track and field meet of the Easton Athletic Association, sanctioned by the Middle Atlantic States Association of thexA-inateur Athletic Union, was held Tuesday evening, March lOth, 1914, at the City Guard Armory. The athletes present represented the colleges, preparatory schools, and athletic clubs of the Lehigh hdley. Besides these, there were men representing the athletic clubs of Boston, Philadelphia, and other cities and made the competi- tion more interesting. In the 35 yard dash preliminaries, Weber and Wichman won their heats, and in the final they scored first and second respectively. Berry scored second to Burke of the Boston A. A. In the 1,000 yard run. Berry had a very poor start but made uj) for this by the masterly running of his race. Miller won his })reliminary against a fast field in the 35 yard hurdles and scored second in the finals. Without a doubt, the most exciting event of the evening was the mile relay. Muhlenberg and Bethlehem Preparatory School were the scratch teams and coneeded handicaps up to 97 yards. Muhlenberg was rei)resented in this event by Miller, Parker, Ileuer, and Berry, running in the order named. This event was won by Lafayette, while Midi- lenberg scored second place. The shot put, which promised to bring forth very close competi- tion because of the caliber of the men entered, was called off during the evening. Skean, in a practice put, “ busted ” the shot and another was unable to be obtained in time for the event. Lafayette won the meet, with Muhlenberg a very close second, and it really seems as if the breaking of the shot lost the meet for us, since Skean seemed to have an excellent chance of winning. This was our first trial of the indoor sport and the showing that we made refieets well deserved credit on the men who were entered. — 150 - p tenBerq ttoneqe I Homer M. Parker Ernest A. Weber J.

In the midst of the most successful football season in our history, the Stu- dent Bo{ly decided that the time was ripe for the introduction of baseball at Middenberg. At first it was thought necessary that, as a result of this, track would have to be eliminated. The abundance of material for both sports, and the coming of Coach McCaa, of A - American fame, rendered this unnecessary. Muhlenberg is now represented in all of the major Intercollegiate sports. II. W. Nenow, T4, was elected hlanager, and arranged a well balanced schedule. A southern trij) was planned, but this could not be arranged, since the time was too late, and the other schedules had been filled. “Poj)” Reese, the Father of Athletics, is back of the new sport, heart and sold, and with the usual result that things are moving along in the best of style. He is the one familiar figure on the diamond. “Pop” was catcher for Lafayette during his col- lege course and it is not a strange sight to see him at the home plate catching the returned fungo balls. The Muhlenberg diamond has been put in good shape and is used merely as the practice grounds, since all of the games are to be jilayed on the Tri-State field. This field has been placed at our disjiosal by the Tri-State management and they are deserving of the greatest credit for the help and assist- ance that they have given us. The suiiport that has been given the team has been most en- c( uraging and baseball is now firmly established as the fourth sport at Muhlenberg. It represents a distinct step forward and calls for the undivided support of the entire Student Body, “(let the spirit” has been the touchstone of Mnhlenberg’s success in the past and its magic touch has brought intercollegiate liaseball to Muhlen- berg, but this spirit has always emanated by the whole Student Body. Let it be so in baseball, and we will have a team that we are proud of and that will add honor to the name of Muhlenberg. ■—163 — ftnrfa f Tl 48fh itfass FRESH-SOPH SCRAPS Bowl Fight On Wednesday morning, October 1, 1914, in the midst of the nsnal muddy, rain-soaked field, the Sophs met the Fresh in the annual bowl fight. The Sophs were slightly outnumbered, but they seemed to use the previous year’s experience to their own dis- advantage. The fight was fiercely contested from beginning to end and, in fact, it became so rough that the Faculty decided to abolish it in the future. So far there have been no accidents, but with the increasing fierceness of the fight it was deemed wise to abolish it before any accidents did occur. The Freshmen chose Blair and Schwenk for their bowlmen for the first and second periods, re- spectively; while Afflerbach and Hepner represented, the Orange and the Black. The first half ended 0-0, even the Fresh put up a very plucky sera}). The second half was won by the Sophomores by the very close score of 30 23. There is a big reason to doubt if this would have been the result if the Fresh had not lost their nerve in the second })eriod. Football Oame The annual football game between the Freshmen and the Soph- omores was })layed on Muhlenberg Field on the afternoon of Sep- tember 29, 1914. The game was spoiled by the numerous fouls and })enalties that were imposed, due to lack of knowledge of the game by the j)layers. Fumbling was the great error of the Sophs, and that is one of the reasons that they were held in check by the Freshmen. Brunner, a dark horse, won the game for 1916 by a s})ectacular run of 70 yards with a recovered fumble. Whitmer failed to kick the goal. The game was more interesting to watch than the usual games, and the evenly matched teams kept the ball nearly in the center of the field all of the time. • — 134 — Banner Scrap The Banner Scrap took place on October 10, 1914, and was more or less of a farce. Due to some misunderstanding only three of the Freshmen appeared and the Sophs had a very easy time in capturing the banner. The Freshmen must be complimented for the valiant fight that they made. Basketball Series The basketball series was the closest and most interesting since the Fresh-Soph Basketball Series has been inaugurated as a college tradition. Every game was close and exciting and well-played and the full five games had to be played to decide the winner. In the first game the Freshmen gave the Sophomores a severe drubbing and upset all dope on the outcome of the series. Boyer, of the Freshmen, starred and aided greatly in piling np the score of 31-16. In the second game the Sophs came back with a vengeance and took the game with the score of 35-18. Brubaker was playing all of the floor at once and his whirlwind attack frightened the Fresh. The third game was won by the Fresh by the very close score of 24-25. This was the best game of the series, but it became very rough before the end. The Fresh seemed to have overcome their stage fright and jilayed like a unit. The Sophs evened np matters in the next game and won with the score of 18-21. The games in the series now stood two-two and intense interest was displayed in the coming game. The final game was the most interesting of all and was finally won by the Sophs by the score of 13-11. This game was also sjioiled a little by too mneh rongh-honse work. This gives the Sophomores the championship. — 156 — sophomorp: football tp:am Captain Earl E. Whitmer Manager Benjamin A.

The motto adopted at this meeting was: “If yon see a note, hit it.” and the eorollary was: “Never tight with the stage hands. ” The program this year has l)een a “scream” repertoire of catchy songs, instrumental renditions, and vaudeville sketches. Part II of the pro- gram headed “In Lighter Win,” created a sensation of mirth and laughter. The first concert was given at Terkasie, and the trip was es- jiceially pleasing to the new men. A few receptions, etc., were the order of things after the eonceid. After our return to college the critics got busy. The supposedly funny and entertaining “War Skit” was so harshly criticised that the army was honorably dis- missed without pension. The “spontaneous” wit had not flowed as fast as the “General” ex])eeted. The “Auto Skit,” however, })asses with a little better favor but even this was doomed. At Scranton the miners were most j)atient not to throw coals during its presentation. It was only at Catasauqua that the act showed signs of decay. “The Smile” was the best part in the act according to the report of several hearesses. Substituting for these two “vaudeville” sketches a medley of the latest, and some not so late, songs, our second part, “In Lighter Vein,” was complete. Marks and Noble filled in as conversation- alists and songsters, and they were good ones at that. After the Catasauqua concert, came Asbury Park. Well, here we were so royally entertained and so well fed that the Censor elimi- — 16:2 — ftaria m TIW ftfassl nated all of the details. The time was too short to go to Sea Girt and so we went to see Elizabeth, where we gave another of our popu- lar concerts. Next day, being Sunday, we traveled to New York. Here most of ns stayed at the Grand Central Hotel. Probably a few went to Sunday-school but the sights of the city tempted too many and the attendance was slight. Monday, we attended the banquet at the “Waldorf-Astoria” and gave a few songs. After this we all paraded up Broadway to “ Chnrchiirs” or “Rector’s” or some other “Little Cafe” as some one aptly put it. It was Tuesday, when we came back to college to spend an entire day. On the following day we went to Reading. This was probabl y the best concert of the entire season, for several reasons. The “Chamber of Commerce” had us sing a few numbers at their banquet at six o’clock. After the concert followed the so-much- heard-of and so-mnch-talked-of banquet at the Wyomissing Chib. On Friday in a blinding snowstorm we arrived in Lebanon and gave an excellent concert. As nsnal, the young ladies had a reception for ns and some of the men very nearly got lost in the snowstorm. Also, one of the fellows nearly got beat up for mistaking a minister for a cabman. The schedule then called for Columbia, and again there were receptions galore. Lancaster then followed with more receptions and on Saturday we arrived in Melrose Park. We took dinner at the homes of the various inhabitants and gave a concert before a very select audience. Here the chib was in a poor condition as several of the men were overfed. Sunday was spent in Philadelphia in a similar manner to the New York Sunday. The audience at the concert was rather slim due to the weather conditions, which did not, however, prevent the different socials and “tango teas” from being held. Some place in the foregoing there is a trip to Bethlehem that must be mentioned. This is the first time that the natives heard oiir chib and they seemed to enjoy it. To give the best idea of the success of this organization, permit ns to cinote from a few newspaper write-ups. — J64 “An excellent concert. A i)rononnced success from every standpoint. One of the best musical affairs held in this city.” The Tribune-Republican, Scranton, Pa. “Even the most fastidious and critical could not find faulf. The voices blend marvelously. Rounds and rounds of given from the audience that packed the large hall.” The Reading Neivs, Reading, Pa. “An excellent program delighted the large audience in Martin Auditorium. The soloi.sts are promising musicians and the chorus singing was splendid.” The New Era, Lancaster, Pa. " They sing, i)lay, recite, and do their stunts in a manner which brings forth loud ai)” Every Evening, Wilmington, Del. “A nobly rendered concert.

J. and C. L. Fry, represented Muhlenberg at the Student Volun- teer Conference, held at Kansas City, Mo., during the holidays, we were enabled to gain a new realization of the reality and bigness of the problems we are facing, and received a new stimulus to our work. The students raised $125.00 for the work in Japan of Rev. E. T. Horn, who is an alumnus of Muhlenberg, and is keeping in contact with us through the mails, counting on his Alma Mater for her inter- est and support. A mission study class of over twenty men has been organized, using as the text-book Eddy’s “The New Era in Asia.” Unusual interest has been shown, and the discussions have been of practical value. About fifteen of the men have been throwing their energies into local Sunday-school work, supplying at nearby missions, and making their influence felt in other similar organizations. Our endeavor to place a ban on the thoughtless habit of swearing has met with hearty co-operation on all sides, and the results are apparent; and there has been a greater interest in the Association’s work that has been encouraging. This year has witnessed a fresh start in this important phase of college life, and our hope is that this new beginning, though it may have been small, may, however, be the starting point of a new activity in the Association’s life, and that next year will witness a development of large power and influence. We cannot be too grateful for the helpful encouragement Dr. Haas has offered, and through the fact that he is putting his shoulder to the wheel he has lent a poise and solidarity to the work which would have been impossil)le otherwise. Henry J. Fry, Leader. — 180 — THE LITERARY SOCIETIES Within the past few years there has l)eeii a growing feeling that Enterpea and Sophronia have not been accomplishing, to any great degree, the purpose for which they were established. Interest has steadily declined; the bulky methods of procedure, compulsory attendance, rival activities, their very age, have all reacted against them. Along with this has been an increasing tendency to transfer “The Middenberg” to the control of the Student Body, and this desire has now become so strong that such action was lately taken. This tendency combined with the general lack of interest to weaken the hold of the societies so that they have been temporarily aban- doned for a new form of literary society that has been given a suc- cessful trial during this last semester. There are now two literary societies known by the names “Senior- Junior” and “Sophomore-Freshman. ” Membership and attendance are optional, business is reduced to a minimum, and the one hour that is spent in meeting every other week is spent in work. The programs are varied. At every other meeting, the hour is given up to a debate, followed by a considerable period for general discussion. Alternating with these programs are some of an entirely different type, featuring orations, magazine and book reviews. The whole movement, it will be seen, is one toward freedom in organization, operation, and work. Whether these new societies will be established permanently remains to be seen. It may be that, with these new principles as a basis, Enterpea and Sophronia will be re-organized. But whatever form the literary societies may take, certain it is that Muhlenberg’s literary interests will not be neglected. — 181 — Editor-in-chief First Term Second Term ELWOOD J.

Parker Edward Zimmerman — ]S9 — Tlie greatest gathering of the alumni and friends of Muhlenberg, in the history of the college, took place on the Ninth of February, Nineteen Hundred and Fourteen. The Muhlenberg Banquet was the occasion and the Waldorf-Astoria the place. The good of Muh- lenberg was the theme of the evening and enthusiasm on this topic was in abundance. Students and alumni, faculty and friends, all mingled on an equal basis, and each gained by the contact. We came back with a better conception of the greatness of Muhlenberg and the men she has sent forth. Our friends and alumni gained a better idea of the Muhlenberg men of the future. As a result of this, there is sure to be a unification of interest that cannot do otherwise than hasten the day when “Greater Muhlenberg” is a reality and all — students, alumni, faculty, trustees, and friends — bend their efforts towards “Still Greater Muhlenberg.” SPEAKERS Toastmaster Edgar Dubs Shimer, LL.D.

Charles Copley, also a student, ; fatally injuring him. The machine, into which i no less than a dozen young men had been jammed, j came tearing along Ith Street at a terrific rate, j and the chaufl’eur, Christopher J. Quinn, scared by the ruts in the road, lost all control. The boat shot from the highway on to the campus, where it had the great misfortune of hitting the victim of the accident, who was innocently engaged in the .study of a dandelion flower. The accompanying photograph, providentially caught l)y a bystander at the crucial moment of the stopping of the machine, shows the first attempt at the rescue of the unfortunate by one of the students. The victim was at once re- Continued on Page GRIM REAPER GOES ON A TEAR Once again we have had the evils of joy- riding forcibly called to our attention when Mr. Cojiley, an innocent student, was run down by an automobile full of celebrating students. Mr. Coiiley is an ardent and enthusiastic student of botany and was carefully observing the actions of the dandelion flower in its native lair when he was disturbed by the machine. This conclu- si ’ely shows that too great zeal in any cause is likely to be harmful to that, just as the great dramatist, Ibsen, says. Mr. Copley at first regarded the whole affair as a joke and not until he learned that he had been run down by some giddily celebrating students did his ire This shows the great j value of a good nature which can stand its bumps and knocks and laugh at them. It also shows that anger in a righteous cause is ' justifiable. Continued on Page 3 VALUABLE OFFERING One of the most talked of events at the Uni- . versity this week is the appointment of two ! Muhlenberg men by the National V. C. T. U. as missionaries to the Telagoos. Both stand high in their studies and are well qualified to perform this noble work. They speak Irish, Hottentot and Telagooish fluently. The Telagoos are a very low race of people, I some of them being as low as four feet. They live principally on food as all savages do. It is with the intention of reforming these evils that our noble brethern are being sent to these benighted people. GRAND ARMY EVENT VERY The Grand Army of the Muhlenberg College Club was yesterday afternoon disbanded with suitable ceremonies. This valiant body made but a single brave effort in behalf of their country, and that in vain, yet all honor is due them tor their noble stand. General Reisner at Perkasie led out his army in a supreme effort to stave off an hostile mob and avert disaster from the heads of his friends, tried and true. He met the attack of the ruffians who threw over-ripe fruit and eggs with consummate courage and strategy. Though finally compelled to retreat he nevertheless restrained the brutal, bloodthirsty mob until his civilian countrymen had retreated to a place of safety. Then, and only then, did he withdraw from the .scene of the conflict. For this wonderful defence the entire army was yesterday granted honorable dis- charge without pension — the necessity for a standing army having, since the Battle of Perkasie, been obviated. BERG EXPRESS Run Down Whom It May APRIL 31, 1914 ECCENTRIC SPARROWS DISCOVERED BIRDS VERY INTELLECTUAL Lima, Ohio. — Thi.s is tlie city wliere all .sorts of tliing.s come from. Yesterday there were di.seovered in the railroad yards, a ()ueer kind ■ of sparrow.s. These birds were picking up the corn that fell from the cars, and laying it on the ; tracks. We sent out onr Sjiorting Editor to observe more closely this new brand of siiarrows. He informed us that the corn is pretty large and unsw’allowable for a little sparrow’, but that the birds take the whole grain, place it on the track, so the cars can run over it and grind it to meal, then the sparrow.s eat the corn easily. ' Thusly the .sjiarrow ' s managed to get a good meal. I DISBANDS : IMPRESSIVE The granting of the diseharge was preceded , by a public review ' in full dress uniform, which was witnessed by thousands of grateful peoi)le. General Reisner, on his noble steed, led the wounded heroes before the eyes of the admiring ])opulace. The sight brought tears to the eyes of many and many a patriot. In an interview’ granted our reporter. General Rc ' isner stated that he hoped to build up a new army to fight in an even better cause. Cor- poral Rlair is so thankfid for getting out of ser- vice, noble as his mission w’as, that he expects to loaf a few years to make up for his ex])eriences. Army Day itself says that he will go back to the farm and mother now that he has procured his release, and will cultivate potatoes for the rest of his natural life. The parting of the army from its beloved and respected general was very pathetic and heart-touching. The general W ' as quite overcome by emotion, and quoted Nathan Hale’s famous remark, “I regret that I have but one life to give for my country.” ONE SCENT STUDENT COMMITS SUICIDE S. C. ARECROW HANGS HIMSELF DESPONDENT OVER STUDIES Another sad cause must be added to the list of casualties which has lately grown so large in our midst. This time the victim w’as Mr. S. C. Arecrow ' , of Liverpool, England. Mr. Arecrow committed suicide early this morning by hanging himself with a belt. His act is ascribed to despondency over repeated failures in Logic. When Mr. J. M. Freed, the room-mate of the deceased, returned from breakfast this morning, he was horrified to see. as he entered the room, the body of his chum swinging by a belt around his neck in the doorway of his bed-room. Mr. Continued on Page 4 LOGIC FAILURES WEAKEN HIS MIND Once again the evil effects of over-work and of strict application to Logie became apparent when, this morning at 7:14 o’clock. Air. S. C Arecrow committed suicide by hanging. The evidence all points to the incontrovertiljle fact that the mind of the deceased w’as derangcfl by his frantic efforts to keep all his work up to the mark in every department, an impossible achievement, if the tales of the other students concerning assignments are to be believed. .Also his endeavors to reduce the mystei ' ies of Logic to a common-sense system were largely responsible for his mental breakdown and con- Continued on Page 5 1 THE MUHLENBERG EXPRESS, RIFLES HOLD MONTHLY SHOOT The Muhlenberg “Rifles” yesterday held their monthly shoot at the rifle-range just north of Cetrouia, Pa. Every member of the club was present, and the occasion was a very en- joyable one in every re.spect. A feature of the shoot was the fact that no one was seriou.sly injured. Ziemer received a slight dose of s]jread-shot, but the damage is only temporary. This has been one of the least serious shoots the club has held in a long time. The immediate occasion for the outing was a test as to the respective jjrowess of two teams, composed respectively of Ziemer and Quinn, and Miller and Parker. The latter team finally won the meet with the exceptionally high score of two bulls-eyes out of a hundred shots. Ziemer and Quinn scored only half as many, one bulls- eye, but they made a very creditable showing nevertheless. Ziemer holds that he and Quinn are both far-sighted and that the targets were ])laced too close to them, which ])revented them from doing their best. Had the range been greater he is confident that they woidd have HAIRCUT OBTAINED The entire college was this afternoon startled and pleasantly surprised to see the form of Levi Yiengst loom up on the horizon minus a large part of the hair which usually accompanies him. All were at first somewhat frightened at this phenomenon. Finally, the bolder men got up courage enough to congratulate him, and him birthday he was celebrating. When it appeared that he had had himself sheared merely for the j)leasure of the thing, and from a sense of duty to his companions, the entire .student body went into general re- joicing. Levi himself .said that he had just di.scovered how delightful it was to have short hair, and that from now on he expected to remain closely croj)ped to the end of his days. Everybody hopes for the succes.sfid carrying out of, Levi’s own de.sires. defeated the winning team. Ed. H. Stolzenbaeh, also a member, intended to give an exhibition of fine shooting with a .44 calibre horse-pistol. Some jealous outsider, probably a rival, tampered with his gun, how- ever, and so effectually that the hammer was missing. In the absence of this important part of the mechanism, Mr. Stolzenbaeh was compelled by force of circumstances to postpone the exhibition. It will be given in the near future, however, he declares, and he invites the public to attend. No collection will be lifted. 30GGe3000GG03GOUOOOOOOtJOOQnQt300Qr30rinC3ejC3e3uOGOGGOGOUOOGOC3GOe«3( SAVE THIS i? COUPON F-IVE COUPONS NO 50C.

During the eourse of a celebra- tion in the Commons it seems Merkle left his machine outside, confident that it would not run away. lie was doomed to disappointment, however, for when he came out his car had dis- appeared. Gus, in spite of the presence of some ladies, spent a few valuable moments in making some pertinent and pointed remarks as to the ancestry, character, and future destiny of the malefactors who had engineered the theft. He then instituted a careful .search of the prem- ises and finally discovered his faithful Cadillac hiding behind the coal-yard adjoining the Lab- oratory. Thankfulness at its recovery smoothed away all traces of his ire, and he rode home in perfect serenity of spirit. It appears as if Gus had placed a little too much faith in his car because it was a Cadillac, believing either that it would not be tempted to run away or that no one would want it. Accordingly when his ideals were thus rudely •shattered he became slightly peeved. His language, while low and soft, was still quite expressive and to the point. Gus threatened the evil-doers with ?he direst punishment were his car not found and returned anon. The relief both to him and to those nearby must have been tremendous when the machine was located undamaged. Questioned as to the probable motive for the strange theft, Mr. Merkle made a few straight- forward remarks to the general effect that the deed had been committed by “some poor boobs who thought they were funny,” and whose cars were not up to the Cadillac standard. This seems a strange motive for such a tragedy but in the ab.sence of a better explanation it has been accepted. Mr. Merkle says that in the future he will remove the engine before he leaves the machine out in t he cold, and thus remedy the difficulty. SUNDAY, APRIL 31, 1914 1 MISCREANTS RUN DOWN COPLEY Continued from Page 1 moved to the Allentown Hospital where his injuries were pronounced fatal. The entire j party has been detained by the Police of Allen- 1 town. When questioned by the reporters, the stu- ; dents had little to say. They merely vouch- I safed that they had been celebrating the suc- cessful pa.s.sage of an examination too freely I and had taken the ride in continuation of the I celebration. They lay the whole blame on the driver who, they say, lost his nerve at the im- portant moment while they were threading the devious defiles of 25th Street. They admit ! that, owing to the great weight of the party ,it might have been an exceedingly difficult thing to guide the machine. All are deeply regretfu ' over the accident. It seems that Mr. Copley himself, who is a devoted student of botany, was carefully ex- amining a dandelion flower in its own environ- ment. So absorbed was he in his interesting observations that he did not hear the wild shouts of the carousers nor the “honks” of the horn until it was too late. Then he endeavored to escape the engine of death bearing down on him, but he was hit before he could move from the spot. He at first belie ' ed it was a joke, thinking his fellow-students wished to find out whether he was physically strong enough to buck an automobile. On learning that he was the victim of an accident this expression changed and he became decidedly angry. He accepted his fate, as foetold by the doctor, very stoically. The driver, C. J. Quinn, has very little to say. He claims that a telegraph pole jumped out into the middle of the road and scared him into driving on the campus. Such an unnatural occurrence unnerved him, he says. It is gener- ally believed that the celebration had jammed Quinn’s gear slightly, so that it is hardly to be wondered at if the machine failed to follow the straight and narrow path. Quinn also says that Copley should not have been studying flowers so close to a dangerous road, thus partly exculpating himself. The police are jubilant over such a large and entirely unexpected haul. STUDENTS VISIT NEW YORK CITY A number of our fellow-students last week honored the ancient an l historic site of New York City by their presence there for the space of several days. Afflicted with a desire to see the high buildings, they decided to risk their lives in that metropolis of sin. Accordingly, under the tender care of Prof. Bailey, who kindly consented to chaperone them, they ventured forth and after a few days stay came home nearly broke. The accompanying pho- tograph shows them in the of the fulfill- ment of the object of their tour. It is especially noteworthy to mark that they were fleeced only very slightly. Outside of paying nearly double the real price of their theater-tickets, they escaped the wiles of the cunning sharper quite well. The con.sensus of opinion of the entire group was that the trip was well worth the spondulix laid out upon it. Not only was their craving for a sight of the big buildings gratified, but they all agree that they learned how to take better care of themselves. They expect to publish a book in the near future “How to Avoid Being Fleeced in a Big City” which will contain accurate information on that subject and which will undoubtedly have immense popularity and tremendous sales. RUMORS OF WAR As we are about to go to press a rumor reaches us that war is about to be declared in that im- mediate section of our country comprising the basement of the Administration Building. The aggressive forces have already laid in a supply of ammunition composed of seven rubbers, three over-ripe oranges, one juicy banana-skin, and four water-bags. The defensive force up to the present time has merely retired beyond the range of fire, and up to date no serious con- sequences have resulted. REISNER HOLDS PINK TEA The social eclat and “F’our Hundred” of Allentown yesterday congregated in the room t of Mr. Walter Lewis Reisner, also “Jew” and “Windy,” to participate in a charming pink tea given by that gentleman. Napkins were served and the gentlemen were requested not to put cigarette ashes on the floor, in order that the customary cleanliness of the roonr might I be preserved. The young feed which was served j co-incident with the tea was served in the room of one Norbert Kauffman, who is slighly less particular as to the absolute cleanliness of his apartments or the exact order of chairs and tables. It must be confessed that the “eats” were rather meagre, but what could be expected at a ])ink tea given by “.Jew” Reisner? This, moreover, in no wise detracted from the enjoy- ability of the occasion, for the event was de- clared by all a real success. After the tea was over Mr. Reisner in the kind- ness of his heart asked a number of his fellow- students to come in and eat the remains of the feast. The remains were even more meagre than the feast, but they were eaten with as much gusto, if with less filling capacity, as a turkey dinner. All these guests were unanimous in their praise of Mr. Reisner’s foresight in having the mess resulting from the aft ' air left in Kautfman’s room and not his own. It is admitted by all that this showed remarkable generalship, and was largely responsible for the immense success of the occasion. 3QOOnQOe3O€3OOG(JO6X3e?OOO€3C3O-r3GO0OC ' READ The Muhlenberg Express Tlie Fastest Paper Published We Express Our News, Run Down Whom It May 3,500,000 Circulation Daily Advertise in Our Paper and Get Results SUBSCEIPTION: $5.00 Per Year 1 Cent Per Copy THE MUHLENBERG EXPRESS. MONSTROUS PARADE MOTLEY ARRAY SEEN ON HAMILTON STREET Allentown was yesterday deeply stirred to to behold a niotley array of Freshmen parade down Hamilton Street elad in snow-white nightshirts. On impiiry being made it was found that the offenders had failed to join in a certain student parade of some time ago, in punishment for which they were made to march down the main street of town at noon yesterday, until stopped by an indignant old lady. At a few minutes before one the blushing Freshmen were first seen wending their way down Hamilton Street clad in the aforementioned nightshirts. They all carried signs giving their for failure to appear in the previous student function. One particularly violent Fresh was riding in a wheelbarrow, which was j)tished by one of his own clas.s-mates. The parade solemnly marched to Si.xth and Hamilton, gravely turned around, and started ovit again. At this stage of the game the “deus ex machina ’ enters the plot — or rather “dea, ” now that we come to think of it. Iiulignation, personified in the ])erson of a righteously wrathful old lady, made violent complaint to Law, impersonated by a corpulent policeman, ordering the j)rank to be halted. Law, compelled to do its duty, therefore nobly intervened and loosed the wheelbarrow-riding Fresh from bonrlage, and in short broke up the parade. Meanwhile, Indignation, still personified, made various sarcastic and caustic remarks about students. The general intent of these remarks was that “students acted like cattle, as if they had no brains, that they carried on like wild, etc., etc,’’ with more to the same general effect. It is very doubtful as to whether or not this speech had the desired affect on its objects, but it is to be hoped that so excellent an address was not made in vain. Such reports as cm be obtained are all very favorable to the parade in regard to its beauty, size, and general attractiveness. It is to be pitied that exhibitions of this nature do not occur more frecpiently to gladden the eyes of this patient city. . t the .same time, it is worthy of comment that there still exist in our town people of sufficiently humane temperament and moral courage to stop such pranks when necessity arises — and even when it doesn’t. GRIM REAPER GOES ON A TEAR Continued from Page 1 The machine was driven by one Christopher J. Quinn, who was quite hilarious over his feat. He says that this was the first time he has had the good fortune to really hit anybody, and he claims that in this affair botany has vindicated itself as being of some use in keeping a target still enough for him to hit. ’I ' he party was somewhat sobered by the acci- dent, but they refu.sed to believe that a mere auto- mobile had been capable of doing permanent in- jury to Copley, and they do not hesitate to call the doctors jn-evaricators who have pronounced the injuries fatal. They all were escorted by the police to Fourth and Linden with no .show of violence and they make no bones of their ex- pectation of getting out without any legal troubles. They still see only the funny side of the accident which proves that a sense of humor is often a blessing. They have already promised to take the police with them on the occasion of tlu ' ir next celebration, and it is rumored that the invitation has been accepted.

To Remove the Snow XVe were surprised that during the past winter many students were unable to get out to college owing to the depth of the snow on the campus. We suggest that snow could be removed in any simple way such as we here present. Why not station a sufficient force of students on the campus when the snow begins to fall. Let each man he provided with a hot tin-cup in which to catch each flake as it falls. When the cup is full of melted snow the fellow can drink it quickly and resume his job. By employing our baseball players not a flake of snow would reach the ground. Sim])le. Another excellent plan would he to hire an army of trap-shooters and let them shoot the flakes to pieces as they fall. Simple, but the ammunition should be furnished free. If these plans can not be put into action, and snow does get on the cam]nis it could he removed thusly: Dig the campus from under the .snow and when it falls into the hole thus made replace the campus on top of it. We solemnly submit these plans to the snow- cleaning department. Our Policy We editors know our Today we got a lot of news.

BIG FIRE SALE Tlie truth of the old proverb, “It’s an ill vind that blows no one good” was again forced iilly illustrated in the course of the past week. ?ire Sale and hence no bargains. As it was, nany students attended and got some bargains —also some things that were not bargains. They all went early to avoid the rush but found hat the rush had come early for the same ' eason. They neverthelesss managed to fight their way to the counters and scare the clerks into giving them the desired articles. Uj) to date the heaviest investor and best- pleased patron has been one William A. Frei- liofer. This gentleman secured the beautiful but rather startling and talkative combination of pink underwear, green socks, and a purjile tie, all below cost. He claims these purchases ivere all bargains and heartily endorses the Sale, advising everybody to follow his example. DESPONDENT OVER STUDIES Continued from Page 1 Freed immediately shouted for help, after first taking the above photograph of the sui- cide. The body was still warm and frantic efforts were made to resuscitate him, but in vain. The doctor arrived within an hour but pronounced him already dead. The de- ceased leaves no relatives. Mr. Freed and other friends of the dead man were closely questioned as to possible motives for his act. It seems that Mr. Arecrow had been working early and late at a tremendous pace for the past few weeks in an effort to keeji up with all his .studies, and it is believed that over-work weakened his brain. In ajjdition, he had just failed in a Logic examination, owing to which he was very despondent. He was even heard several flays ago to remark something about “hanging,” but whether he referred to himself or the Logic, can never be known. As far as can be learned the young man had nothing beyond his studies to trouble him. It has been suggested that his melancholy, noticeable for some time past, might have been occasioned by the fact that he was rooming with Freed, who is an habitual solitaire-fiend, which may easily have been enough to make him morbid and unsettle his mind. Also judging from the amount of work he was making frenzied efforts to accomplish, it can safely be inferred that over-work was also a partial cause of his despontlcncy. The deceased was very secretive and nothing is known of him beyond that he came from Liverpool. He made few friends here and ap- parently received no letters from friends else- where. Practically nothing is known of his ancestry or his native home. The aecompany- ing illustrations show him as he ortlinarily ap- peared when at work, and as he looked after committing the fatal act. Mr. Freed has only one comment to make on the whole matter — he is glad that his room- mate hanged himself and did not cut his throat and mess up the room. Mr. Freed has kindly consented to take care of the burial arrangements for the deceased. FUTITRIST POETRY Who knows the lilt of dark, insensate things That shimmer through the sunken sea Of strife.

M. Freed, the room- mate of the dead man, by an unprecedented summoning up of courage, arose early enough to go to the Commons for breakfast. On his I’eturn he fouml his chum hanging in the doorway making his last kicks. Being a curious specimen of humanity. Freed first took a picture of the scene for his scrap-book and then summoned help, which, however, proved quite useless. The whole affair shows the deplorabl eevils re- resulting from the reckless abandonment of a good habit, for had Freed not gone to breakfast his room-mate would never have committed his rash act, and a life would ha ’e been saved. The fleceased was a solitary person, desiring few friendships. He was fpiitc content to exist by the side of his solitude-seeking, .solitaire- playing room-mate. Thus his premature demise shows the evils of a morbid, solitary life, and his chum should take heed lest he be drivi ' n to the same action. Of, Freed is hardly likely to bring on any attack of self-slaughter by over- work, and there is therefore much hope for him.

SAYINGS OF A “LOLLYGOGGER” If girls were to choose their husbands as care fully as they choose their hats the woods wouk be filled with bachelors. The high cost of living wasn’t so high in th( days when a girl would rather use soap thar cold cream. Any old time you see a man putting on a girl’s rubbers for her you can bet that they art I not married. The old fashioned girl whose dress used to be full of pins now has a daughter who leaves everything unfastened. A girl of the period looks more like an ex- clamation point. What has become of the old-fashioned girl who used to marry Nat Goodwin ? Alarriage is a lottery and the prizes men draw are talking machines. It doesn’t matter how often he has done it. it always makes a girl mad to imagine that a fellow believes he can kiss her when he wants to. Woman has it all over man. She never looks warm in Summer and she never looks cold in Winter. It isn’t always modesty that makes a girl wear high-necked dresses; it may be a mole. Almost every day a man sees the prettiest girl he ever saw in his life. It is always the woman who has raised a poodle and a canary and two goldfish who knows i all about the proper way to raise children. A girl’s idea of a quitter is the young man whoi will leave her side and go home at ten o’clock, | just because her father says he can’t stay any ; later. The old fa.shioned woman who used to have a framed crocheted ‘‘What is Home Without a Mother ” in her dining room now has a daughtei who has “Ish Ka Bibble” mottoes all over tin house. A man who has hives, eczema, and a dollai watch isn’t kept any busier than a woman win marries a man to reform him. When a man gets through sowing his wih oats he often reaps a grass widow. + + ' ♦ + + + ¥ ■ Norbert Baum Kauffman’s New Novel ' Put A way the Old Love j THE BEST OF THE BEST SELLERS A Million and a Half Copies Sold Received Everywhere With Open Arms I . $ 1.50 DON’T MISS IT NOW ON SALE b0C»t3GGUUQGQQC3GQ0€30tX30t50Q0C3C00UQG0G00e3G0Q0GC»0G00000t5r¥TQQQQnnr3nnJOC3C30000QCXC 5 SUNDAY, APRIL 31, 1914 ANSWERS TO CORliESPONDENTS Dear Editor: Why does a crow caw or doesn’t it? — Dundore (Seems to us a crow ought to crow; a rooster roosts, ain’t it? — Ed.)

The same kind of outrages have been occurring steadily in the past and both the men are roused and determined to run down the offenders and punish them.

For high-class vaudeville it can not be surpassed. Every minute contains a laugh, if not at the jokes, at the comedians themselves. Noble and Marx present a de- lightful little act filled with original .song and patter that is funny enough to make a marble angel on a tombstone double up in hysterics. Their sparkling wit, accompanied by excellent songs, the very latest, rendered by good voices, in the best possible manner, is making a tre- mendous hit. Harold Laury, famous all over the United States, presents a monologue in which he ap- pears as a chauffeur disgusted with an obstre- perous machine. His almost humor has every- where been a howling success. The grease- paint he uses on his face to represent dirt gives him a very life-like appearance and adds much to the enjoyment of the piece. The big feature of the bill is a little skit entitled “Our Army in Action,” in which are presented three foot-light favorites, Reisner, Day, and Blair. This head-liner is certainly a top-notch production. In addition to their remarkably funny act, a great deal more humor is introduced by the use of what Mr. Reisner calls “.spontaneous wit.” This calls forth all the latent ability of these actorines and the result is an excruciatingly funny sketch. .Vfter leaving town this act is scheduled for a two- weeks stand before King George V. The “Delyric” The M. C. I). A. Stock Company at the “Delyric” is this week pre.senting a pleasing farce called “The House Next Door.” The play is filled with humorous situations and is liberally sprinkled with wit. The eccentricities of Sir Hugh Gotsgold furnish an inexhaustible source of amusement, and the real nobility of Sir Jacob Isaac.son adds the necessary note of seriousness to the play. The actors, as in the past, are taking their respective parts with wonderful success. Their innate ability would assure any jilay success, and such an excellent one in particular. Indeed, on the occasion of every performance so far it has taken the house by st orm, and it is certainly worth the invest- ment of one’s loose change to be seen. FRESH CULLS DANDELIONS curious yet amusing event occurred yes- terday afternoon, when a solitary Freshman spent the entire p. m. filling a suitcase with dande- lion flowers. Shortly after dinner the Fresh- man appeared on the rear campus, accompanied by a few Sophs with a dress suitcase. The latter article was forthwith turned over to the Freshman and he was recpiested to pick all the dandelion blo.ssoms in his immediate vicinity until he should fill the Not being of exactly a combative temperament the Fresh complied and picked industriously for [iractically the whole afternoon. Sometime before supper the results of his industry became apparent, when the suitcase had become so full as to require pressure to close it. The Freshman was then rewarded by being allowed to stop on the condition that in the future he would be less The treat- ment seems to have been quite sati.sfactory in subduing the superfluity of animal spirits in the young man. It is generally conceded that the sun must have boiled away his fresh- ness. The dandelion flowers themselves, we are told, were kept by the Sophs, who will have dandelion wine made from them to be u.sed at their next banquet when they will regale them-selves with the fruit of this labor. The amount of flowers picked should certainly insure plenty of wine at all events. WANT ADS Wanted: A position as a dentist or in dental work. False teeth a specialty owing to advanced study of them.

The shot was thrown with such tremendous violence that (striking a wall) it broke in half. A. H. Skean was the man who made this unprecedented heave. It was only a practice put, however, preliminary to the con- test, and so is unofficial and not recognized. Whether the distance was greater than the shot has ever been put before we do not know, but we believe that any man who can heave it with such violence as to break it has certainly estab- lished a better record than that of any man who has merely thrown it some distance. We ac- cordingly hail him as the new holder of the record until someone shall appear who is able to smash it into three pieces. Owing to the floods we hed no train service in this vicinity fer two or three days, and Huetsch, who send pomes to the magazines, didn’t get any verses for three days and he thought he had landed at last.

Some miscreant vandals (those were not the words used to describe them, but this book is censored) turns out the lights in League Hall, and when the engineer conies over to fix them, turn out the lights in the whole Dorms. All opinions on the matter were expressed in well-chosen words and with great clearness. 11. Preliminary Oratorical Contest brings out good oratorical talent. H. Fry, first; H. Bagger, .second. Ziemer makes a terrible threat which we quote. “The stairs are long and steep and it is very easy to fall down, your eyes are only made of flesh and it is a long drop from the window to the ground. 12. Grammes and Finck get together and di.scover that two judges of the con- test were ministers, interested in foreign missions, and the third judge was teacher of English interested in American Literature. 13. Friday the Thirteenth. Prof. Simp.son speaks in chapel and quotes Wm. James. Dr. Haas gives the best chapel talk in the history of Muhlen- berg.

Luther Schmehl, another Read- ing light (this is not a i)un) joins a choir. Harry Feld goes home a day late for his weekly trip. Usual light meal at the Commons. 16. Hepner’s cake, sent by one of his numerous lady friends, fails to appear after a month’s wait. In despair he loses all moral stamina and goes back to selling aluminum on the streets of Allentown. 17. Fresh basketball praetice. The Sophomore team takes a great deal of notice. Discussion is rampant about the coming game of the series. 18. Sophs beat Fresh in a close basketball game, tying the series at two-two. Everett puts the Sophs ahead by shooting three fouls in the last few minutes. Boyer and Bausch play the star game for the Fresh. 19. Dr. Cooley lectures on “Rome.” The illustrations are furnished by “Doe” C)rr and the lantern. Gaily colored pictures of the old burg. Owing to an indisposition of the Press Club, other students had to prepare the aecount for the paper. •iarfa f TIW 48ffi «fass Prof. Bossard gives a ripping good speecli in chapel on “The Three Views of Life.” Howard Kistler takes his gir! to see “Quo Vadis” in movies. Edgar Crouthaniel does likewise. Finek also attends. A tough Urammer quiz. !21. Fry, Snyder, Bagger, Laiiry, Grammes, and Reisner go to Franklin and Marshall for the Intercollegiate Oratorical Contest. Hollenbaugh loses a bet to Afflerbaeh in the Commons. Excitement rampant. 22 . We reeopy the calendar for publication. Werner is asked to teach the Young Ladies ' Bible Class in Christ Church in order to swell the at- tendance. Bucks is also asked to take the job. Everybody reads Ogg. 2 ‘ 3 . “Middenberg” appears only 11 days late. There is another new poet in our ken who makes his debut in the “Muhlenberg.” We are truly blessed, for at last we have one that writes English. 24. Robbery in League Hall. “ Indian-giver ” Nenow steals his photograph back from one of the “Den of Angels” so that he can have a cut made of it for the newsj)a])er. Gee Whiz! but we are bothered for our pictures when we are good looking. 25. Mr. Lieper, Secretary of the Student Volunteer Alovement of America, speaks in chapel, holds personal interviews, and addresses the M. C. A. Excellent foreign mi.ssion dope. Too much of this “Here am I, send him” spirit around here. Coach McCaa appears in a baseball suit. 26. No Junior German. Prof. Frit.sch sick. Gebert remains in chapel till the last ])rayer. Student Body meeting. Stolzenbach makes a motion in Sanskrit. 27. Ausflug. Big Baseball Burle.s(pie. Prof. Simpson umpires the game and escapes murder.
