But, kind reader, if you have such an Alma Mater, if you like to look back to your college days and cherish the fond memories of them, you will understand. You will know that the emotions, the regard, the love can not he ex- pressed in such feeble lines as these. We do not, at this late hour, care to recall the achievements in the class- room or the victories on the field. We care very little whether the world knows of oui ' difficulties and we do not choose to remember. It is of little moment for you to know who we are or what we have accomplished. We shall he satisfied if you believe that, on this page, there is an attempt to picture our love for Muh- lenberg. The time for the final word has come too soon. We are prepared to go forth into the world with undaunted courage, but are we ready to say adieu? Let us linger a moment and turn to retrospection. When we stop to think of the happy moments; when we remember the devotion of a kind professor ; when we feel the guiding hand of our Alma Mater, we can not say the word. But we have run the short course allotted to us. We must lay aside our history when we feel that much should he added. Could we but recall the oppor- tunities to enrich it ; to insert the kind word for the unkind; to smile when we frowned ; to work when we lagged ; to appreciate when we were indifferent. We must allow the friendships which we have formed to he interrupted. How sacred they appear at this time of departure ! When we think of them alone, we realize that our time has been well spent. Especially do we rejoice in the good fellowship of classmates of the past and, with longing hearts, hope for our mu- tual happiness in the great future before us. Thus, on the eve of our departure from these scenes so dear to us, from this life of opportunity, we stand with manifold emotions. There is much to be re- membered and much to he said but our hearts are too full. We can do no more now than close our history, praying God’s blessing upon our Alma Mater and all who love her.

Ptnln |i|r%y ' { ' A §% -,y ig|k 2Z $: »il S: 7 i, ® •■ v, THE -CIARLA- 1916 Junior History To l)e truthful, a class history iu twenty-seven cases out of twenty-six (this has been estab- lished by careful compilation and investigation) is mere bom- bast and braggadocio. Its style savors strongly of a Fulton County politician, who, standing on a sugar-barrel at a country cross-roads store vociferously brags to a half dozen admiring natives of the wonderful things lie has done, being careful at the same time not to mention the many things he has failed to do. Fortunately indeed, such de- lusive boastfulness is not necessary in the history of the 1016 Class. A mere recital of our numerous triumphs and successes accomplished during our three years’ stay at Muhlenberg will lie sufficiently convincing to show that we have “made good.” As Freshmen, we at once elicited favorable comment on the part of the upper-classmen for “putting one over on the Sophs” on poster-night. Perhaps the greatest achievement of our athletic career was the one act which no other class in the history of Muhlen- berg ever accomplished —winning the bowl-fight in the Freshmen year. Great- er still is the glory when we consider the score — 45-20. In basketball we won the series against the Sophomores. During baseball season, we took the initiative in playing games with outside preparatory and high school teams, all of which we won. Finally, we bantered the Sophs into a game and gave them the worst drubbing that they were 36 Serve T H E -CARLA- 1916 compelled to suffer at our hands. It must not be supposed, however, t hat we were wholly given over to ath- letics. The attainment of scholarship was to he the summiim bonum of our col- lege life. Nevertheless, during the hours of study, many were the escapades we committed, of which the proctors never learned. Sweet memories of the beds beneath the sod. Let them A Big Night rest in pieces ! The Glee Club received our support as did the Dramatic Association. To the former we contributed four men, two of which were on the Quartette. Six of our men helped make “The House Next Door” the success that it was. We closed our first year of college life flushed with success, and with eager anticipa- tion awaited the next. Chapter II. We began our second year by winning the bowl-fight, the last to be fought; the football game; the banner scrap; the basketball series; the tennis champion- ship and the baseball series. We thus brought our Sophomore year to a close with an unparalleled list of victories. In other lines of activity our efforts were equally successful. The calendars were an artistic innovation. The Glee Club again received our strong support. The Cue and Quill Club likewise. Let us not forget our little party on the night of the Junior Ausflug of the 1915 bunch ; nor the cremation of Horace the last night of college. Many indeed were the hours of pleasure and profit spent in class- room and on campus dur- ing this second year of our college career. Chapter III. We are now upper-class- men. Life is solemn, ser- ious. Our shoulder is at the wheel and progress must advance rapidly. We 37 Sophomore Baseball Team have elected not the proverbial “cinch” courses, but the ones most needful to us. Our acquaintance among the professors has widened. Our support of college activities is still maintained. We supplied seven varsity football men and three in basketball. Many of the candidates in both baseball and track are members of 1016. Our athletic position is shown hy the recent inter-class track meet which we won by a lead of twenty points. One of the big events of our Junior year was the Pagan-Minister football game. Here, religion won a great and overwhelming vic- tory. The heathen got revenge in basketball, however, by winning Surveying 37-19 The 1916 Junior Ausflug was held on Monday, May 3, 1914. The afternoon was spent in a game between the Pagans and the Ministers which, for want of a better name, was erroneously called a baseball game. After enacting this comedy of errors for the edification of the rest of the Student Body, we made our toilets and at 7.00 o’clock left on a special car for Trexlertown. Upon our arrival we were conducted by our guide and fellow class mate, Barner, through a bewildering maze of streets and boulevards to the Voder House. Here we regaled ourselves on a splendid chicken and waffle dinner which was made doubly enjoyable by the wine made from the dandelions which the kind-hearted Sophomores had picked for us a year ago. As soon as the dishes were cleared away, Toastmaster Lauden- slager called the fellows to order. Jaxheimer, Hepner, Billow, Fry, Hubbard, and Profs. Bailey and Simpson responded to toasts. The usual “Cracker Bowl” brought the affair to a close. Last, but not least, by any means, behold this, the final achievement of our class — the 1916 Ciarla. May your criticism be merciful and just. Three years have been spent under the ennobling influence of dear old Muhlenberg.

We returned with determination and with hands and minds ready to carry our colors on and up to victory. It was well that our spirits were strung high, for they were very soon given a severe test. The camp had certainly been invaded by the new- comers. Freshmen were on all sides, in fact, they were so numerous that every- where one looked one saw them in multitudes. The pole-tight and the football game were both won by the enemy, partly because of numbers, and partly because of talent. The banner rush occurred late in the season, thus badly hampering the Sophomores because of their “varsity material. " Nevertheless, grim determination sat upon the face of each 1917 man as he waited for the whistle. The fight was short and tierce. The Freshmen were unable to withstand the terrible charging and although their numbers were twice that of the Sophs still they weakened. The banner came down amidst cries from husky throats and 1917 had won the day. From that time on the Freshmen were never left to wander from the paths and rules laid down for them. We felt very thankful that it was necessary upon but few occasions to exert our hand of authority. But leaving the Freshmen and their weaknesses, our attention is attracted to other 1917 activities. The football programs were everywhere received with enthusiasm, and the Sophomore calendars were a c omplete success. The class has found representation on the Glee Club with four men, and with a still larger number on the various athletic teams. This much we have accomplished during our two years of undergraduate life. For Muhlenberg — our Alma Mater — we will continue to work and win.

Upper classmen were amazed, College authorities were pleased, the new Freshmen were elated by the happy realization of dreams long dreamed — but the last year’s Fresh- men, what of them? They were the only ones present on that never-to-be- forgotten day who were not favorably impressed by the wonderful addition to the undergraduate body. And it is a matter of History how their gloomiest forebodings were far too cheerful. In the pole-tight, the first of its kind ever held in the history of Muhlenberg College, we had our first chance to prove our mettle. We went into the fray with the spirit which recognizes no possibility of defeat, and emerged triumphant. Many and loud were the boasts of “1917” that they would “get back at us” in football. Our gridiron warriors said little and got busy. For the second time, we showed our superiority and shattered Sophomore hopes, winning easily to the tune of 25-12. In the banner-scrap, as never before, we showed that we were “game. " Those who saw us repel the terrific onslaughts of the Sophs for fifteen minutes of the fiercest fighting, realized that the mere defending of a rag was not our highest aim. We were there to show that we could fight, and right nobly did we prove our valor. When basketball became the rule, we displayed this same “ never-say-die ” spirit. With the count two to one against us, we won the series in two bitterly contested games. But it is not in successful inter-class contests alone that we measure the suc- cess of our class. “For Muhlenberg we will.” It is this spirit that pervades the Class of 1918, and assures us that the eighty-five Argonauts who last September came from the “ends of the earth " to find the Golden Fleece of Success here at dear old Muhlenberg, will ever reflect credit upon their Alma Mater.

If so you need not peruse these pages diligently for, with the exception of basketball you shall bud no brilliant record. Js your ideal clean sport? If so peruse these pages with care and you shall bud as clean a body of men as is found in any college. Have you ever considered that the number of men taking part in the sports at Muhlenberg is thirty-hve per cent higher than at any other institu- 100 tion ? Think of it! Statistics show that nearly fifty per cent of our Student Body are “out” for some branch of sport. The three charges against college athletics: first, the low morality of athletes: secondly, the low standard of scholarship; and thirdly, that athletics to-day are “for the few and not the many,” are disproved, at least, by Muhlenberg’s record. J f you rejoice- with us that such conditions exist, then may you in truth say, “I will support the college, serving her, working for her, fighting for her, as every loyal-born son or friend of Muhlenberg ought.” 101 P.-HSESZSHSaSlSHFESHSHSHSESHSHSZKSZSZS?

This was a great incentive to the scrubs who felt for the first time that they had a chance to show their metal. The fellows were somewhat slow in getting under way, however, because a change of coaches meant that a new style of play had to be learned. This caused a delay in real, substantial practice, which was felt throughout the season. On September 26 we began our offensive movements by attacking Blooms- burg Normal whom we vanquished to the sonorous tune of 39-0. Our attack was so rapid and overwhelming that they afterward told us, confidentially, of course, they thought they were arrayed against a detachment of the German army. Nevertheless, they inflicted some damage before they left. During the third period Pete Henninger had a ligament in his left arm torn. This cost us the loss of his services for three weeks. What the score would have been had no sub- stitutions been made can only be conjectured. The next Saturday we matched our skill and brawn against Penn State. On the morning that the team left, the students — including the band, of course — escorted the team to the station and gave them a noisy and hearty send-off. The long ride, however, caused our men to play a listless game and during the first two periods Penn State scored 19 points. In the second half we came back strong and forced the up-state team to their limit to register a bare three points. In fact, we came within eight yards of scoring a touchdown ourselves. The final 111 ) X THE ' CIARLA score was 22-0 — it was only what we expected, however. Our playing, considering the status of the two institutions, was wonderful. The greater part of the following week was spent in recuperating from the results of the last fray. Fortunately, the game for this week permitted the varsity to rest while the scrubs were able to undertake the greater part of fight- ing. It was on October 10 that we met the enemy (Susquehanna) and made them ours (35-0). We had very little trouble applying this coat of whitewash for only once was Susquehanna within scoring distance. We must admit that they put up a plucky fight from start to finish. After this easy victory the entire squad was put through a gruelling practice for the contest with Rutgers in the enemy’s own lair. The Jerseyites expected an easy game but we upset their calculations. Finding their conclusions a trifle hastily and faultily drawn, they took it upon themselves, without asking our per- mission, to extend the length of the last period until they made another touch- down. When the game should have stopped the score was 10-7, but when it ac- tually ended, which was immediately after Rutgers scored, it was 17-7. Our fellows played their best and it is safe to say that no team ever put up a better game for Muhlenberg. It gave us fond hopes of defeating Lehigh the next week. Bcause of the wonderful exhibition at Rutgers, enthusiasm and excitement ran high at college. Great were our hopes of holding our own against Lehigh. October 24 was the date of the combat. When the contest began the largest crowd since its opening was seated in Taylor Field. From the beginning, when Cahall kicked-off to Hubbard, until the finish, every inch of ground was hotly contested. Lehigh gained only by the utmost effort and strategy. The rivalry was so keen that rules were continually broken. All the way through it was a battle royal but Lehigh, by her superior weight and strength, left the field victors, 27-0. Not daunted by this defeat, we faithfully prepared for the game on October 31 with Bueknell with whom we had an old score to settle. In this game there was none of the bitter feeling that characterized the one with Lehigh. From start to 111 o THE -CIARLA- 1916 finish it was nip and tuck. Both teams failed several times in their attempts at field goals. The mystery of the game was that there were no touchdowns recorded to our credit. Twice we crossed the enemy’s goal line. Both times, however, the referee said we had fouled. Be that as it may, the final score was 0-0. Satisfied with the outcome of the game, we turned hopefully to the game with Lafayette. With practically our entire student body at Easton to make things hum we expected to give Lafayette a hard tussle. We were not far wrong in our calculations. For three periods we played an excellent game and it even looked at times as if we would bring home the bacon. Up to this time the score was only 7-3 against us. It was during the last quarter that our hopes went up in smoke. The Eastonians decided that they had wasted enough time and con- sequently made the air look blue with their rapid scoring. The game ended 24-3. Excluding the last few minutes, however, it was a brilliant game to watch. It was here that Brickley Hayes made himself famous by kicking a field goal — the only score for Muhlenberg. On November 14 we received our fifth set-back of the season, at the hands of Lebanon Valley, 7-0. How they accomplished this feat is recorded under the references entitled Luck. They won the game by recovering a fumble on our five yard line. Altho Lebanon Valley scored early in the game we kept on fighting just the same, threatening their goal line constantly. In this, as in every other game of the season, we suffered by having several men badly injured. Our jinx was still with us. This defeat only increased our determination to defeat Villa Nova. For this purpose we journeyed to their camp on November 21. Though we were greatly outweighed, we went into the game undismayed. The score 0-0 does not do justice to the contest. We had the ball in the enemy’s territory three-quarters of the time. A high wind, however, killed all our attempts at field goals. Without a doubt this was the most exciting game of the season. Following last year’s precedent, we closed the season with Albright on Thanksgiving Day. In a game replete with fumbles we lost to the University of 112 • TH E -CIARL A • Benfer, 20-10. On the whole, we were far from oiu- usual stride. There were only moments when we played brilliantly or showed signs of reviving. Usually a fumble lost all we bad gained. Even at that we made Benfer hustle to beat us. With this game the playing season came to a close. We never consider our season fitly closed, however, until we have banqueted. This pleasant duty was duly performed at the Livingston Club on December 16. After the meal and the usual speech-making, which in this case happened to be un- usually good, the men were presented with their letters and sweaters. Reisner, the only senior on the team, received a four-star blanket. At the close of the evening Ritter -was elected captain of the next year’s varsity. Thus the season of 1914 became a thing of the past. 1916 113 THE -CIARLA 1916 Benjamin A. Hubbard Captain — Left End Ben had the distinction of being captain of the 1914 team. The honor seemed to aid, rather than hinder, his playing. He was especially clever at making sensational catches of forward passes. When it came to getting through interference, there were few who equalled him. Breaking up opponents’ end runs was another favorite pastime. Best of all, he will he with us another season. Newton W. Geiss Right Guard Newt Geiss scrubbed his four years and was consequently awarded his sweater and scrub “M. ” But Newt worked so hard and took his bumps so manfully that it was decided to give him his varsity letter which he well deserved. There are many who say they would come out for football if they had a chance. Newt never asked himself whether he had a chance, hut came out and worked for all he was worth. William S. Ritter Left T ackle Dutch Ritter, Captain-elect, for 1915, did the best work of his career during the season just passed. When it came to making holes in the line Bill was by far the best man we had. On the field a broad grin was his constant companion. Bill seldom if ever got peeved. He has shown what willingness will do on the football field. 114 THE -CIARLA- 1916 • ♦ Walter L. Reisner Quarterback Jew Reisner, the quarter, finished his career as a varsity man. He has left behind him an enviable record ; it is a record which offers much encouragement to the man making his first try for the team. Jew has played four years on the varsity and has won the four star blanket for his work. Will iam H. Hollenbaugh Left Guard Bill was this year developed into a fast tackle under Coach McCaa’s able tutelage. A member of the scrub team last season, he surpassed all expectations this fall and earned a position on the varsity, which he well deserved. The McCaa system was well adapted to bring out all the good points in Bill. H Carl A Erikson Center On account of humps and bruises, which would not re- spond to treatment, Pop Erikson was not able to take part in many games. Pop was troubled all season with injuries. But we hope that next year he will be in better shape than ever, for his services at center are very valuable. Claude M. Laudenslager Quarterback Although Laudy was not in every game, he did himself and the team full credit. He was a heady quarterback and es- pecially good on the defense. He made up in brains what he lacked in size. 115 1 — c n r= Ernest A. Weber Quarterback Diminutive though he is, he proved that beef and brawn are not the only requisites of a football player. Web was a genuine surprise for all of us. The season was almost over when he decided to come ont for the team. He not only came out for it but succeeded in making it. With a little more ex- perience Web should be a wonder. Th omas J. Brennan Right Tackle We made a find in Paddy when we discovered this spairsely thatched Belfast Dutchman. This year Paddy dem- onstrated to our satisfaction that lie could play the line much better than the back-field. Due to wonderful playing alone, he gained for himself a regular berth on the team. He was so anxious to be in the game that on more than one occasion he was penalized for being off-side. William L. Caskey Rigkt Half Back This was Kidder ' s banner year. He more than lived up to expectations and was the bright star in all the games in which he played. Kidder was by far our best line plunger, and whenever we needed a gain he could be counted upon to pro- duce the goods. He established a record for himself of which he can justly feel proud. James F. Detling Full Back Jimmy is a mate to Paddy Brennan in that he also proved to be a find. Last year Jimmy was a line man. This year under Coach McCaa’s training, he was developed into a speedy baekfield man. As a line plunger there were few who could surpass him. lie was possibly the most determined player on the team. THE-CIARLA THE -CIAR.LA- 1916 D. Franklin Day Left Guard Pud, the Swampoodle boy, was slow in getting started this year, but after he once got things going he never slowed up, but “kept her on the loop” until the season closed. Pud always maintained that the nearer you were to the bottom of the pile the less liable you were to injury. That Pud practiced this there is no doubt, for he was generally found at the bottom of a play. Louis J. Hay es Right End Coach McCaa did not stop finding material when he found Detling and Brennan, but he continued by finding Brickle.y Hayes. Hayes did not practice kicking tennis balls during the summer like a regular Brickley. He started by booting field goals merely for exercise, and surprised us all by dropping them over better than anyone on the team. Elwood Sckwenk Center Schwenk proved to us that willingness and hard work are the main requisites for a successful football player. With only two years’ experience, he made the team and proved his right to a permanent position. He showed that it was not the hardest thing in the world to break through the opponent’s defense. William F. Bedenk To judge from appearances you might say that Germany Bedenk was a good football player, but you would hardly concede him to be the wonderful player that he is. Germany is not only able to play the backfield to perfection, but he dem- onstrated his versatility by playing end in such a praiseworthy manner that the Coach was undecided where to use him. 117 THE -CIARLA- 1916 Horace B. Reed Right - Tackle Hip is our first West Philadelphia High hoy. His gigan tic size alone was sufficient to satisfy his opponents that he was not to lie disregarded. All that was necessary for Hip to do was to reach over the line and he was able to grab the man carrying the ball. Frank B. Corboy Full Back Red Corboy showed good stuff and although he was used as a substitute for the greater part of the season, he shows promise of better form for next year. Red is a good line plunger and with a little more experience will make them all hustle for his backfield position. Russell Gaston Full Back On account of injuries Russ was not able to do himself justice this year. However, in the games he did play, he showed no mean ability. He was not sensational, but he put up a hard, consistent game. He showed us that next year, barring all accidents, he will make a very valuable player. Charles Steele, Jr. Quarterback In the few games that “Cliolly” played, he proved his right to a place on the team. Early in the season, however, he was forced to juit the game because of an injury to his knee. The jinx that followed us around all year singled him out of the whole team and made him the goat. We are waiting for him to prove his real worth next year. 118 BASKET BALL • 1914 - 1915 • THE -dARLA- 1916 The Basketball Team 1915 William S. Ritter ........ Harry W. Smeltzer C. Luther Fry ........

Afflerbach Benjamin A. Hubbard Louis J. Hayes 120 THE -CIARLA- 1916 Basketball Season 191H-1915 UHLENBERG opened her third season in basketball with New York University Law School. Our team put up an excellent game and played almost in mid-season form throughout. We succeeded in de- feating the strong New York quintet by the score of 34-21. The following week we met two of our old basketball rivals. The first was Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. After throwing an as- sortment of curves — curves that would make a Mathewson green with envy — around the rafters, we came away victors by a good margin, 40-17. Philadelphia was still the camp of the enemy the next night when we played the University of Pennsylvania. We made them our third victim of the season when we beat them 30-27. Our wonderful passing and mid-floor shooting won us the game. Penn started by scoring six points, but Afflerbach immediately tossed three field-goals and thereafter Penn was never in the lead. Our pace throughout the game was too fast for our opponents, although the close score kept the interest at high pitch. Thinking that no time was more opportune than the present, we trimmed Lehigh, for the first time since we opened relations with her in basketball. 25-23 was the score. The game was very exciting throughout as first one, then the other side took the lead. Half a minute before the end of the game the score was tied, but Captain Ritter was equal to the situation and tossed a field goal, winning the contest for Muhlenberg. With these four victories stowed safely away, we met Lafayette at Easton a trifle over-confident. As a consequence we were beaten, 30-21, our first defeat of the season. Lafayette took the lead early in the game and held it throughout. Our second defeat followed immediately after the first. This was handed to us by Gettysburg on their floor. The score was 40-22. The game was featured by the playing of Campbell, Gettysburg’s center, who ran up a total of nine goals. Our guards, Gaston and Detling, also distinguished themselves by scoring three out of the four goals that Muhlenberg secured. The next night the team wound up a three day trip by defeating Bucknell by the score of 28-22. In this game the regular line-up was changed somewhat. 121 =— — h gf ♦ • THE-CIARLA-1 J " 1 916 • ■■ Ritter, because of an injured hand, was moved to forward ; Gaston took Ids place at center; Hayes played the other guard position. This combination worked very well. Hubbard had seven field goals to his credit. Ritter, too, did some mighty neat floor work. The five following games were played on our own floor and we emerged the victor in every one. The first of this string of victories was a matter of settling accounts with Lafayette. In one of the hardest fought games of the year we trimmed Lafayette, 29-23. Our triumph in this contest erased the stain of de- feat administered to us earlier in the season. We next proceeded to give Philadelphia College of Pharmacy their second drubbing of the seas on, when we heat them 43-23. This game gave our team a rest, for in the second half practically the entire team was replaced by the scrubs. With this defeat, P. C. P. was quite willing to admit their inferiority to the Car- dinal and Grey quintette. Then Bucknell again fell. Score, 44-31. The game was easily one of the most spectacular seen here this season. Bucknell, attempting to retrieve her de- feat of three weeks ago at Lewisburg, displayed wonderful spirit at the start and held a seven-to-one advantage in less than two minutes. It was not until our men made a desperate rally that we were able to end the game with the score in our favor. Xot satisfied with defeating us on their own floor, Gettysburg had the au- dacity to visit us with the express intention of duplicating that victory. But we were prepared and spring a complete surprise on the battlefield boys. At the end of the second half the two teams were tied at 43. An extra five minutes was therefore required to determine the winner. At the end of that time we left the hall victors, by one point, 48-47. When it comes to deciding who played the best floor game it would be like trying to decide the difference between two drops of water. With the aid of the college band we defeated Susquehanna, 38-28 in a rather uneventful game. The visitors came here with a good record, but there was no question of our superiority after the first few minutes of play. Both teams played a rather ragged game. The series with Lafayette being one-and-one, and with both teams claiming the championship of Eastern Pennsylvania, it was decided that a third meeting should take place, but on a neutral floor. Scranton was the place selected for the contest. Before one of the largest crowds that ever witnessed a game there, Lafayette defeated Muhlenberg, 29-26. We lost the game in the last few minutes of play. How Lafayette defeated us is still a mystery. This game cost us the championship of this section of the state. 122 The Varsity • THH •CIARL.A • 1916 • ♦Ha r " _ - All our defeats this season came in pairs. In a very evenly contested game played with Rutgers, we were defeated by the score of 21-24. In the first half neither team was able to gain any decided advantage, the period ending in a 11-11 tie. During the second half Rutgers, more through football tactics than through scientific playing, succeeded in gaining a three point lead, which they were able to maintain until the whistle blew only through the greatest good fortune. We played our next game on our home floor again and defeated Lebanon Valley, 35-15. Of these thirty-five points, Hubbard scored twenty. The visitors put up a game fight and made us hustle during the first half. During the earlier part of the second half, however, we forged ahead far enough to permit the substitution of the scrubs. To give Lebanon Valley an opportunity to present any claims if dissatisfied with her defeat, we met her in Annville, the village where she abides. At the beginning of the game Lebanon Valley began with a rush. The half ended, 18-12 in her favor. During the second period our men showed a wonderful “come hack.” Twenty seconds before the end of the game the score was tie at 33-33. In the mad rush for a point which followed, Lebanon Valley won when Loomis shot a basket from the center of the floor. This made our fifth defeat of the sea- son. Score, 35-33. We began our season with a victory and we closed it with a victory. Our final game was played with Susquehanna University at Selinsgrove. We re turned home victors with a store of 23-22, after a contest that was hard fought throughout. With the defeat of Susquehanna, we closed the most successful basketball season in the history of the college. Out of the seventeen games on the schedule, we lost but five. We scored a total of 554 points to our opponents’ 460. Especial credit must he given to Coach McCaa for turning out the wonderful team of this season. Every man on the team, too, is deserving of praise, for every man played his best. 124 -BASEBALL- • 1915 • THE - Cl ARL A - 1916 The Baseball Team 1915 Ernest A. Weber Mark S. Young John W.

Home 126 THE -CIARLA- 1916 Baseball Season 1914 AST year our hopes and expectations were realized when a varsity nine represented ns in baseball. The showing we made was remark- able. We defy any college or university to show us a better record for its first year. We endeavored to open our season by playing Lafayette at Easton. The game, however, bad progressed only two innings when Father Jupiter dropped in on us and called it off. Our first full game was with Susquehanna University on our home grounds. Here we proceeded to even up matters for a defeat in basketball the year before. The score was 6-2 and it was only because we did not want them to leave the grounds peeved that we allowed them to score at all. Lehigh, however, then decided to slow up our progress, which they did by a whitewash of 8-0. Our next two games were played with Allentown Tri-State. We were glad to practice with a professional team but as a result received two bumps, 9-3 and 11-5. Three defeats in a row were entirely sufficient, so we passed one of them off to Juniata College, 7-5. The game was featured by the loud and continuous cannonading of our heavy artillerymen, Berry and Detling. Next, Susquehanna received her second setback of the season at our hands. On her home grounds we defeated her 1-0 ; only one prodigal son coming home. Our attack upon Lebanon Valley was frustrated by the shoots of Signor White who deemed it cowardly on our part to maltreat his Alma Mater. He refused to allow even one man to reach home, whereas we, out of the goodness of 127 I THE -CIARLA 1916 our hearts, permitted them to cross the pan ti ve times. Angered by this defeat we made West Virginia Wesleyan suffer for our shortcomings. In the fastest game of the season we defeated the Southerners, 3-2. Then, .just to keep the ball rolling, we got the long end of a 6-5 score with St. Joseph’s College by a spectac- ular ninth inning rally. Next, Seton Hall lured us to their woods, which they called a diamond, and trounced us, 12-5. Here we were handicapped by our inability to curve the ball around the trees which bedecked the diamond. Seton Hall, on the other hand, seemed to have no trouble at all in performing this feat. The following day we journeyed to Annville on the “Harrisburg Special” with high hopes of evening accounts with Lebanon Valley. Signor White, however, again proved too black for us and we lost, 2-0. Too bad ! On June 13 we engaged in a “Comedy of Errors” with Albright College. Neither team played up to its possibilities and so errors and overthrows were numerous. Though both teams put up the same brand of ball, Albright, with the aid of Dame Fortune, managed to nose out ahead, 10-9. As a fitting close to the season, we defeated the Alumni, 17-3. It was only because the varsity treated the game as a huge joke that the Alumni were able to score at all. Thus ended a very successful first season in baseball. The prospects for an even better season for 1915 are unusually bright. Only two of last year’s varsity, Berry and Blair, have left college. Moreover, there are a number of promising candidates among the new men. Among this number are Bedenk, Belles, Corboy, Horlacher and Reed, who all have good Prep, or college records behind them. The schedule which Manager Young has arranged is a good one and with the individual support of every member of the Student Body we will have a season that Muhlenberg can be proud of. 128 B aiV Wibner VAK5ITY 1 r | ' ■ L • THE • CIARLA-1916 • Jf g — ig-«gg» Date 1 The Place t Baseball Record 1914 Team M.

The only track meet in which Muhlenberg competed was the Penn Relays, April 25, 11)14. The day of the meet was cold, rainy and damp. The downpour made the track soggy, and slow. Heuer, the only runner of last year’s team, began the race and finished third. Parker, in the second quarter, kept third place for us and reduced the distance between himself and second man. Miller, run- ning third, cut this lead still shorter. Berry, in the final quarter, pulled up to first place early in the heat. He held this for most of the lap, but in the last few yards he was passed by Gettysburg and Brooklyn. Parker Berry THE -CIARLA- 1916 T rack Prospects UHLENBERG resumes track this season after a year’s lay off. Last year, when the Athletic Association decided to include baseball among our varsity activities, it was thought best to devote all our energies toward putting this new sport on its feet. For this reason, the Penn Relays was the only track meet at which the college was represented. This year, for the first time in the history of the college, Muhlen- berg is engaging in four major sports. The track squad is under the leadership of Captain Miller. The material looks promising. Reisner, Hubbard and Weber, varsity men on the 1913 team, are still with us, beside Miller and Parker who ran on last year’s relay team as well. Then, too, the number of new men who entered with good Prep, school records behind them is unusually large. Among this number is Charles Steel of Bethlehem Preparatory School who is the present holder of the Interscholastic quarter-mile title. Besides this neueleus of experi- enced men there is a wealth of green material which our present system of com- pulsory track and gym work for the new men is helping to develop. At present, every effort is being made to get the men ready for the Penn Relays to be held on April 24. The prospects for a winning team are improving every day. The squad is composed of Miller, Laury, Weber, Parker, Steel, Tice, Dirlam and Leemhuis. The number of candidates makes competition very keen. All the men have been put at the training table. Under Coach McCaa they are at work on the track daily. On the whole the prospects for a succesful season are very bright. The num- ber of men interested in the sport is large and the schedule that has been arranged is a good one. We feel sure that the team of 1915 will be a credit to our Alma Mater. 134 THE -CIARLA- 1916 College Track and Field Record 100 yard dash Bixler, ’ll) 10 1-5 sec.

The Freshies, because of unusually good coaching and the exceptional ability of several members of their eleven showed admirable team work. The Sophs, however, were the first to score on a 30 yard end run by Keck. The Fresh then received the ball. Long runs by Walton, DeNobriga and Tice soon placed it behind their enemy’s goal posts. Walton kicked the goal, making the score 7-6. A few minutes later, Tice made a sensational run through a broken held for 80 yards and a touchdown. A short time afterwards he repeated the performance but was brought back for alleged running out of bounds. Early in the second half Walton plunged across the line for the Freshies third touchdown. Score, 19-6. In the final quarter the Sophs played their best game. They could not, however, fathom Tice’s open field run- ning. He brought the Fresh their final score by another long run through a broken field. In the last few minutes Fitzgerald recovered a fumble for the THE -CIARLA- 1916 Sophs and carried it over the Freshies’ goal line. The few fumbles and the sen- sational plays of several of the individual players made the game unusually in- teresting. Pole Fight On the Wednesday after the football game the faculty and the student body were again entertained by watching the Freshmen and the Sophomores in the first Pole Fight at Muhlenberg. A pole was placed in the middle of the field with eight ropes attached to each side. The participants were lined up in two long rows at either end of the held. At a given signal both classes made a rush for the ropes and the tug began. In two successive periods of ten minutes each the Fresh succeeded in pulling the pole over their goal line, winning the contest. The Sophs were so greatly outnumbered that they had no chance of winning in spite of the fussilade of hour under whose cover they made their dashes. Mem- bers of the Student Council acted as officials. Banner Scrap The second annual banner rush was held on September 26. After a four minute struggle the Sophomore class won the victory. The Fresh fastened their class pennant to a tree in the grove with three large spikes and after covering it over with molasses gathered round to defend it. The inner circle of men were tied together with ropes. Preceded by a shower of rotten eggs, the Sophs made their attack. After a short fight they cut the ropes and only the spikes and molasses prevented them from tearing down the prize. Finally the canvas gave way and the pennant was captured. Edward Stolzenbach, president of the Student Council, refereed the fight. Basketball Series The traditional basketball series between the two under classes was almost as hotly contested as the one of the previous year. All the scores were fairly close 138 - - - . I 1916 • 1 and the full five games had to be played to determine the winner. The Sopho- mores won file first game by the score of 20-17. Baush and Strauss did most of the playing; the former scored 11 points and the latter 13. In the beginning of the second game the Sophs had the Fresh so decidedly at their mercy that Captain Gebert determined to rearrange the lineup so as to give all his men a chance. This move proved disastrous. The Freshies took advantage of the lack of team work, and won a decisive victory. 23-33. Between the halves of the Gettysburg game, however, the Sophomores got revenge by capturing the third game 11-13. This was the most exciting contest of the series. The victory was not decided until the last ten seconds of play when Gebert caged a spectacular goal. In the fourth game the Freshies evened up matters by winning, 27-15. By this time 1918 had developed such strong team work that the Sophs endeavored to get out of play- ing the deciding game by postponing it again and again. It was not until March 29 that the persistent Freshies were able to force the Sophs to definitely decide on a date for the game. The result was an overwhelming victory for the new men to the tune of 31-11. Interest in the series was somewhat marred by the many delays which caused it to extend over more than two months. • THE -CIARLA 140 Sophomore Football Team Allen Boyer . . . . . Captain Corson C.

The new men were given a hearty welcome and assured of the good times to come. Regular rehearsals followed twice a week. It was at these meetings that the efforts of Prof. Harold K. Marks were evidenced and appreciated as well as the devoted zeal of Donald Marks, the leader, in directing the members. After the regular numbers of the club had been carefully rehearsed, sug- gestions were in order for a skit to occupy the second part of the program. To till this need a playwright came into prominence, President Elmer E. Frederick, who accomplished the task of composing and arranging a musical travesty, en- titled, “The Prince of Allentown.” The “Sympathy Orchestra” with Joe Hum- mel as violinist created the music par excellence. The act more than merited all the favorable criticism which it received. This year the season was comparatively short. The itinerary of the club included only ten concerts. This was Ihe smallest number in years. As usual the opening concert was held at Perkasie. The appreciation of the large audi- ence assured us that the season would be a success. Probably the best concert was the one at Reading. At the close the fellows were invited to the Elks Home where they made merry until the wee hours of the morning. Hazleton and Harrisburg were the new towns visited. The cordial reception they gave still lingers in the minds of the men. In short, the season was a credit to the institu- tion as well as a financial success. 147 THE -CIARLA- 1916 Prog ram Part I. 1. (a) “Long May She Live, Fair Muhlenberg " (b) “Battle Song” .....

McColloin, Jr., proved to be one of the most finished and enjoyable performances which Muhlenberg actors ever produced. The play is a rollicking four act farce-comedy adaptation from the French. Although the play enjoyed a long professional run in New York City, its suita- bility for amateur production was such that it was possible to do full justice to the performance of every role. The action is swift and the situations possess accumulative power, becoming the more humorous as they become involved. The plot centers around a lost Mexican lottery ticket, which wins $500,000. By accident the ticket is taken with an old coat from the studio of Ramon Andrade, the artist, by a fugitive, who wishes to escape the toils of the police. The scenes that follow ' are highly ex- citing and amusing, and finally wind up in a road-house, where the ticket is recovered at the last minute, when things look darkest. Every member of the cast did himself great credit and some of the roles called for were no cinches to portray. This was especially true in the case of the female parts. The imper- sonations were carried through without the glaring incongruities, which so frequently marred similar attempts in past plays. Blair as “Francesca,” Sehout as “Beatrice Lind,” Hartzell as “Pearl” and Bucks. as “Mother Sharin’’ and “Mother Roversi” gave particularly clever characterizations. Sehlechter, as the fugitive from the police, was one of the best actors in the show. Fry, Mock, Reisner and Roderick are deserving of mention for their sympathetic interpretation of the parts assigned them, as are Hepner, Schwenck and Day for their assist- ance in making the play the most successful in recent years. 155 THE-CIARLA CasV o{ “The Million” Francesca Ramon Andrade Dr. Lorimer Walsh Charlie Burt .

Snyder Roland Rupp W A I jDEM a R G ALLEN K A M 1 At a Student Body meeting held in September, 1914, it was decided to place the Press Club under the control of the Student Council. The old club was abolished. The plan adopted for the new organization was that originally pro- posed by the Weekly, and was to this effect : that one Senior, two Juniors and three Sophomores shall constitute the club. In addition, any Freshman may “heel” or declare himself a candidate for the club, and by satisfactory work during his first year become eligible for election as a Sophomore member. From the Freshmen who work for membership, the Council will choose three who will become memb ers during their Sophomore year. From the three Sophomores two will be chosen as Junior members, and one of the two as Senior member. x - 1, J r Lj % — " T — ■ — rHE-CIARI. A-l 1916 • ♦ i W _ The Literary Societies EGINNING last October, the activities of the Senior- Junior and Sophomore-Freshman Literary societies were resumed. These organ- izations came into being during the second semester of last year by way of substitution for the old Euterpean and Sophronian literary societies which were temporarily abandoned. The initial trial of last spring was quite successful and gave promise of growing interest and activity in the work of this year. An inter-society debate, held last May, served to arouse not a little enthusiasm and also the desire to conduct at least one or two such events each year. The new societies were established on principles of greater freedom than the old organizations allowed. This year at last, membership and attendance were 1 optional. Meetings as heretofore, were held for one hour on Wednesday morn- ings every other week. Matters of business were given but a small amount of time, first place being given to the literary program. This included either a debate with open discussion, or readings, orations and reviews of magazines, books and plays. Of the two societies, the Sophomore-Freshman has during the past year per- haps been tin more agressive. In point of greater attendance and interest among members, together with work accomplished its efforts seem to have been very successful. This has been largely due of course to the active interest which a large number of men of the incoming class have taken in the organization. With tin impetus which some of the newer men have given it, and with the continued support of the more sympathetic of the older men, it is hoped tin societies will continue their existence and again come into their own. 168 l J — k — J 1 • THE -CIARLA • 1 i 1916 • ' S== Tbe Muhlenberg Christian Association ITU the unusually large incoming class, an added impetus was given to the work of the Christian Association, which, though lacking in power and influence, is striving to assume the place in the life of the college ami of the students that really belongs to it. Close upon the well-attended reception tendered to the new men, fifty-four students volun- teered to ‘‘tag’’ for the Good Shepherd Home and raised over $200 for it in that way. This, coupled with the fact that about twenty-five men are actively engaged in local Sunday-school work and take a prominent position in the Luther Leagues of the conference, shows that, while no definite settlement or town work has yet been begun, there is no slight union between the students and the town church-work. Throughout the first semester alternate prayer-group meetings and a series of talks on Home Missions and Social Service were held. The Association was fortunate enough to secure as speakers Rev. Gustav H. Bechtold, Dr. Jeremiah Old, and the Hon. Frank M. Riter, all of Philadelphia, and Bishop Ethelbert Talbot of Bethlehem. At these talks there was an average attendance of thirty men. With the opening of the second semester a class was organized for the study of foreign missions, which consisted of almost twenty men. As a basis for the work, Dr. W. H. P. Failure ' s “Social Aspects of Foreign Missions” was used with considerable success. During the first term the Cabinet, consisting at the time of only two Seniors, was aug- mented by the appointment of three other men, Luther Fry, ' 16, Henry Moehling, ' lfi, and Corson Snyder, ' 17. It is earnestly hoped that they will receive the unqualified support of the entire student body, in order that the work which has been begun may really grow. But while the Association has been able to accomplish these things there is a very definite limit to what may be done by them unless they receive the strength that affiliation with similar institutions at other colleges would give them. It is an exceedingly difficult matter to arouse the vital interest that is necessary for its success so long as the work must be confined to the narrow sphere of our own institution, and were it not for the fact that Dr. Haas has assisted with untiring energy and the most helpful encouragement, it is a question how much of what has been done could have been accomplished. With the start that has been made in the past two years in this important issue in our college life, it is hoped the work may be carried on with new force next year, gradually de- veloping in the Association the power and influence that rightfully belongs to it.

C., a cherry tree planted by Finck, and the well- known Lost Chord, lost by the quartette ten years ago. Mystery solved! Scene 7. Entire student body welcomes our hero and asks him to deliver an illustrated lecture on the matter. Adventure 5. The Fond Farewell Scene 1. Vincent packing. Puts tooth brush and mileage book in bottom of trunk. Packs until full (the trunk, that is). Tries to sell pictures and pen- nants. Nobody bites. Generously gives them away. Leaves old newspapers for next man to read. Leaves 25 lbs. dirt, 7 crooked tacks, and a discarded photo- graph of Lillian Russell. Exits tearfully. (Shivery, sob music by the orchestra.) Scene 2. Vincent, like Lot’s wife, turns to gaze. Exudes salty tears. Loses control of himself and wallows in emotion. Takes fresh grip and old suitcase. Exits in silhouette against setting sun. (Art stuff.) (Orchestra plays — “This is the Life.”) Passed by the Muhlenberg Board of Censorship Next Week Pud Day, the John Bunny of Allentown, in a screaming farce, “Fare Please” One Minute Intermission to Change the Reel. PIT I. There’s a crank in every college ami a chump in every school Who thinks he’s really funny ami tries to play the fool; He ’s a nut, He ’s a mut, As we’ll show you, if you reail on, in this brief poetic drool. II. Oh he gets a drag quite early playing tennis with the Profs, And pulls strong with all the Preshies ’cause he doesn’t like the Sophs; He’s right there, Quite a bear With the ladies whom he welcomes, as his nobby hat he doffs. III. ITe makes speeches dry at banquets and he lives to tell the tale, And he’s very foml of springing puns and jokes that are quite stale; But he squeals When he feels That a joke is played on himself, then the kid begins to wail. IV. And lie’s quite a fancy dresser, free from any trace of dirt For a modish suit is proper for a lad that’s such a llirt; But he ’s true, True as blue, For he wears his little frat pin even on his old night shirt. V. Now you wonder who this guy is that’s got such an awful bump On himself, that’s quite as large as any dromedary’s hump; Why, it’s you, Reader, you, Any boob that reads this verse thru, is the biggest sort of chump! 195 ♦ • THE -CIARLA- 1916 Dens We Have Visited The Room of a Good Fellow. “ Yeh, this is his room. Dusty ? Oh, it ' ll he cleaned up Saturday for the dailies at the game. Yeh, those four packs of cards are his. Look greasy, I know, hut his roomy swiped the best deck. The room’s pretty smoky. Naw, cigarettes ain’t allowed. Only pipes. Cigars cost too darn much. Good magazine somewhere around, probably. Naw, bis roomy swiped it. Some classy pennants! And some pictures! Sure, he ' ll take ’em down when his folks come to see him. And he’s got a pippin of a pipe, but his roomy swiped it. Naw, girls don’t trouble him. Ilis roomy swiped all he had.” The Boudoir of a Fusser. (What my permitted lady friend thought of it). ‘‘Such a cunning little room! What a pretty fireplace! Can you light a fire in it? Isn’t that fine? Where did you get all those dance programs strung on your mantel-piece? And that cute little slipper? What a lot of girls’ pictures you have ! Why are your text books so dusty ?” Th e Suite of a Gentleman. “Kindly rub your shoes on the mat before entering. Kindly do not sit on the bed. No, he thinks it ' s vulgar to display photographs of his friends. Nothing above the molding? Certainly not. He holds that as one of tin first principles of decorating a room. Everything in its proper place you see. Don’t touch anything. Yes, he uses ‘Old Hampshire Rond’ stationery. No, he does not go 1o the movies. But sometimes his room is fragrant with the sweetest little perfume imaginable.” The Study of a Grind. “No, lie’s never had any pictures or pennants on the wall. Distracts from work he says. Yes, lie has a perfect filing system for all his notes. He never studies Sundays. His religious scruples prevent. He stays up till 3.00 A. M. on Saturday nights so he won’t have to plug the next day. Cards and tobacco? Of course not. No ti me for them. Where ’d he get all those books? They ' re all text hooks and collateral readings. The prof recommended them, you know. Can we show him a good time tonight? No, he says he’ll he busy. Got a stiff quiz next week.” Our Own Room. “Gotta excuse led. It’s only made once a week. The cleaning committee does it. Got no time myself. Too busy for such work. No, I don’t like that picture myself. Yes, my desk is rather littered up. Gona clean it some day. Uh-huh, gona paint my walls some clay. Gona get new pictures, too. Oh, well, if it’s too cold here, you know where you can go! Gona fix up my room decent some clay.

Uncle Sam removed it from the map the other day. Just as William Jennings won his fame through oratory and grape juice, so has our Billy won his through his melodious piercing voice, though sans grape juice. Aside from his daily routine of life, Billy gives evidence of a well developed taste for art. Billy sings French. Yep, he does. Ask him to sing and he starts out : “ Tours le jours " in 57 varieties, thereby equalling Heinz. Billy is the handiest man around the place. His vast amount of experience in all trades fits him for any service. No situation arises at college which he is not capable of handling. When Billy is down town all “slicked up” he appears so refined and cul- tured that people stop him to ask him where he comes from. When he informs them that he comes from Muhlenberg College, they ask, “What chair do you hold in the faculty there?” Billy smiles and replies, “Oh, I have no chair, I am on my legs all day long.” When questioned further concerning his professorship, he informs them that he is Professor of Practical Economics. Michael M icco One of the most elusive characters on the campus is our gardener. The name Mike means hike, for to find Mike, you must hike. Mike was born in the sunny land of Italy near Naples. Often he sits and tells us how he and Gara- baldi crossed the Delaware through floating ice on the eve of the 4th of July. Mike first appeared on our campus about a year ago and has since become a very familiar figure. He spends much time in improving the campus, pruning and caring for the trees. But this is not all. For he is not only raising “Bambino” on the college farm, but tomatoes too, as large as water-melons. Mike is bound to improve himself as well as the college grounds. He is learning to handle the English language with perfection under his able tutor, Mr. Moehling, Jr. Charles Schoenly Charlie is our best friend when the lights go out. He is also the friend of the upper classmen when they send a poor, green freshman for something that does not exist. 199 THE- CIARLA -1916 • ♦ Without light and steam we should he in a sad state. Just as it is important to have a competent man at the head of the educational department, so it is of equal importance to have an efficient man at the head of the mechanical depart- ment. Engineer Sehoenly does more than shovel coal. He may frequently he seen walking over the campus looking after things that need attention. He is seen among the trees with the lawn mower as well as behind the boiler. Charlie is one of the jolly bunch and likes to mingle with the boys and we like to have him with us. M oses Warmkessel Veil, here c-o-m-e-s M-o-s-e. Mose, Sehoenly ’s co-worker, is also one of the campus strollers. When we hear a calm, easy, steady step, we know that Mose is coming. 1 1 is usual trip to the Ad building to lock down the windows, even on the top floor, is never neglected. II is chief aim is to banish all ghosts and boogie- boos from the campus. Frivolous smiles seldom seem to cross Hose’s face. His expression is ever calm, earnest and sincere. Trudging the round of the buildings, nightly, lantern in hand, he strongly recalls our old friend Diogenes searching for his honest man. $ 9 9 9 WhaV Hie Critics Sayj About Us Some Advance Notices George Wagner (Called “Billy Bryan”) — “Youse boys got a flue book. I feel highly elated to have secured a write-up among the ‘ Well-Knowns. ’ Bill Werner, To — “Y our Ciarla is quite bristful. I didn’t think you had it in you.” Levi N. Yiencst, To — “I intend to establish a public library in Cetronia in the near future. I want a dozen copies of your handsome volume to start my collection. Urbanus Wirebach, T7 — “ I used to think I had a sense of humor. I have read your book, and have decided to enter the ministry.” W. Grattan Ladd, T8 — “Your Ciarla has only one fault.
