Five hundred thousand dollars is the final aim of the campaign for Muhlenberg College and Mt. Airy Theological Seminary. Of the total sum to be raised, Muhlenberg College is to receive $275,000. A number of successful campaigns have been conducted, of which the first and most successful one in many ways was that held in Allentown in October, 1915. It was planned to raise $60,000, and almost $70,000 was reached. Leading business and professional men participated in the movement, and one of the great surprises of the week was a gift of $5,000 for the endowment fund given by Mr. Edwin H. Stine, an alumnus of Muhlenberg College. Not a few citizens of Allen- town contributed $1,000. Following this successful campaign, an excursion of New York laymen visited Muhlenberg College and Mt. Airy Seminary. They were entertained at noon in the commons by the ladies’ auxiliary of Muhlenberg College. This auxiliary which now numbers over two hundred members, was one of the results of the Allentown cam- paign. It plans to provide supplies to the commons and to work for other needs of the college. After the visit of the New York laymen, who were entertained by the college orchestra and glee club, several representatives of the campaign committee visited Buffalo and secured $15,000 in twenty-four hours. Similar visits were made at Rochester and 21 191 T CIARLA Utica, N. Y. The campaign which followed the Allentown campaign was that at Reading, which netted $30,000. The biggest campaign in regard to financial results was held in February, 1916, in Philadelphia. It resulted in contributions amounting to over $80,000. In this campaign the largest single gift was given by one family, amounting to $10,000. The city of Lancaster has raised over $20,000, and Lebanon has contributed $15,000. At this time a campaign is being conducted at Pottstown. Other towns that have not been covered will be similarly canvassed by organizations of laymen of one hundred or more, formed into bands under captains, and meeting daily to report and plan for their work. The income of the money will be used in the college to pay for the erection of the new Allentown Preparatory School, and to liquidate existing obligations incurred by the College. This campaign, which is now materializing, is the outcome of a campaign of several years of instruction throughout eastern Pennsylvania. It is the culmination of plans carefully matured, and will relieve the College of immediate burdens. The College, however, is of necessity planning still larger things, to meet the increasing demands of its work. Doctor Haas. Dorms 22 YE STUDENT GOVERNMENT 191T CIARLA STUDENT COUNCIL OFFICERS C.

How little we thought of that time! Four years ago we came to Muhlenberg and here we have lived a new life. Some of us have delved thru lexicons and grammars, seeking the buried treasures of the languages. Others have drawn the curtains which hid the mysteries and wonders of the sciences. Truly, we all have profited by our sojourn here. Only by continued love for our Alma Mater can we hope to repay the debt of gratitude we owe her. You have read the first three chapters of our history. The last chapter would be more delightful reading than any of the former, but we do not care to enumerate our latest achievements. Suffice it to say, that in all student activities 1916 has done more than her share and we can feel elated over the successes of the past. In dramatics, glee club and, especially, in scholarship we have set the standard for succeeding classes. Athletics received unusual attention from us, and it was with joy that we won for Muhlenberg. We have but one regret in thinking of our athletic record and that is, when we leave, the athletic ranks at Muhlenberg will be sadly depleted. In inculcating higher ideals and raising the ethical standard of the student body the faculty has always been able to rely upon our active support and co-operation. In fact, few classes have been at Muhlenberg that have maintained such pleasant relations between the faculty and the members of the class. It is with emotion that we say “Farewell.” All the pleasant friendships between fellow students and professors must be interrupted for the present, some for all time. The pleasant life we have been leading must be ended. We have run our course and now we stand on the threshold of a new and independent life — a life in which the success we shall attain will be credited largely to Muhlenberg — our Alma Mater. These fond memories make us realize in the words of Lucy Larcom: “The loveliest of blossoms is but a cradle for the ripening fruit; and in the fruit lies hidden the germ of unimagined summers yet to be.” The Historian. 28 The Seniors 19 1 T CIARLA SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS FIRST TERM W.

Ptuta 191T CIARLA POLE EIGHT JUNIOR HISTORY AS FRESHMEN O N SEPTEMBER 12, 1913, we as Freshmen entered upon a career that has proven itself to be exceptionally successful in all ways. In numbers we excelled any previous Freshman class and because of this our contributions to the various college activities have always been high and of the very best. Immediately after our arrival things began to move. We went into the bowl fight without the slightest knowledge concerning it, but we decidedly won the first half, leaving the second half to the Sophs by a small margin. But such small failures could not dampen our ardor, and in the football game which followed we tested the strength of the Sophs to the very utmost. ’Tis true they won the game, but on a fluke. Thruout the entire time of scrimmage they were outplayed to such an extent that we never regretted them the six small points that they accidentally made. The Varsity squad was greatly strengthened by the additions from our midst and we will always be proud of the fact that this was one of the greatest teams that Muhlenberg has ever had. The baseball series with the Sophs proved to be but a slight obstruction in our path toward success. We also had a banquet and a very memorable one, too, and altho the Sophs had promised to break it up, we nevertheless feasted in royalty and without disturbance. We were well represented in the literary societies, the Glee Club, the Cue and Quill and many of the other college organizations. Indeed, when this memorable year came to a close we felt that our accomplishments were great, but were still to be greater. 38 191T CIARLA AS SOPHOMORES As Sophs we were first entrusted with the care and supervision of the “newly arrived.” We carefully ad- vised them in the performance of their duties, and when circumstances demanded, we sometimes chastized them. When the day for the banner rush arrived we sallied forth with high strung spirits and with grim deter- mination engraved on every face. The Freshies put up a brave fight, and altho outnumbering us, were unable to withstand our fierce onslaughts, and the banner was torn from its hangings. The athletic teams were largely upheld by our representatives, while the suc- cesses of the Cue and Quill, as well as the Glee Club, can largely be accounted for in the help that we gave. Our football programs and calendars were something entirely novel and were printed and sold in large numbers. As spring came on we prepared men for the track and baseball teams and in all instances these men made good. About this time the dandelions seemed to be rather plentiful on the campus, so we very gently urged that the Freshies pick them in view of our Ausflug of the coming year. AS JUNIORS We returned for our third year with greater resolutions than ever before and with a determination to carry them out. We placed men on the Varsity that accomplished won- ders. Scrubs we gave in abund- ance. The basketball team would have suffered heavily without our assistance. Many of our men can be found holding responsible posi- tions on the Student Council, in the various literary societies, on the track team, the Glee Club and in almost every active organization. We produced a Pagan-Minister football game that was overflowing with excitement. In that terrific mud-soaked combat the fighting spirit of the class of 1917 was sophomore baseball team clearly apparent. We conclude 39 19 i T CIARLA AFTER THE BANNER SCRAP these three years of striving for Muhlenberg with the production of our greatest master- piece, the 19x7 Ciarla. Just as this volume is going to press, the Junior Class achieved its latest victory by winning the Interclass Meet on April 15th. The highest individual scorer was Hayes, a Junior. Who said that 1017 could not come back? TWO OF OUR JOLLY CREW 40 As Freshmen 11)17 CIARLA JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS President Vice President . . . . T reasurer Secretary ....

Bausch was slowly meandering down Chew Street about one hundred yards in front of me. “Hey, Bausch! Hey, Bausch!” I yelled as loud as possible to attract his attention. However, he would not turn around and as a result I had to run after him. Catching up behind him, I tapped him on the shoulder, but he would not give me his attention. Believing him to be in one of his dreamy moods, 1 began to speak to him. “Didn’t you hear me call to you for the last five minutes?” I inquired. “Why, yes,” he replied, “but I didn’t know if you wanted me. Some of the fellows are always howling, even if they have nothing to talk about. I very seldom listen to them, for I learned better down at Allentown Prep.” “You played on the Prep basketball team a couple years ago, didn’t you?” I inquired. “Yes, and those were the days,” he replied. “We had some team. But I don’t seem able to make the big team out here, altho I did make my scrub “M” in football, and had a pretty good chance at basketball. Let me tell you one thing,” he con- tinued, “the present-day athletes have a hard road to travel. However, there is one redeeming feature. We can expect a fine group of athletes in the near future to be turned out from Brubaker’s Gymnasium Classes.” To my surprise he continued to talk all the way down town, for Mark is usually of a quiet nature unless you get him into an argument. But never attempt to do that, as Bausch is sure to get sore. 43 ■EE3 EDGAR J. BRONG Sehnecksville, Pa. Born at Allentown, Pa., May 29, 1894. Prepared at Allentown High School.

Just look, here is some bunch, and each one wants — Didn’t I say beer, but every one insists on either whiskey, gin, brandy or gin-rickey. This is what you call a bunch of ministers. I suppose you celebrate now, to make up for the sordid and uneventful life that you must lead when you have entered your profession. If you were scientific students I could easily understand your thirst, but the future moral police. Have a heart, fellows, I am no millionaire. Don’t any of you prefer good cigars? Here 1 have a brand of threefers that go for five centers in a treat.’’ The bar which was opposite the entrance was not appealing in itself; but it lead to the source of joy and mirth. The benches which surrounded the room were crowded with farmers who had come to see the fellows perform. A dense cloud of smoke, the result of twoscore of smoking mouths, filled the room. In this room Brongy seemed to be in his proper surroundings. After several rounds had been made some one shouted, “Let’s have a song.” Ta — starts out, “Page number one, drink it down, etc.” “Hurrah, fellows, hurrah, let’er rip,” chimes Sus — , clinging to the railing. Amid the songs, flourishes and glib talking Brongy’s voice always takes the lead. The treat has made its round and Brong’s turn is here again. “It is my turn again. I’ll do it, but only on one condition. That is, every one must drink an “Allegheny Farmer’s Highball.” A quisitive but half-vacant stare passes around and after an attempt at reflection they shake hands on it. Brong leaves the room. He returns presently with a mis- chievous smile playing upon his lips. We are led to a table in an adjoining room. Every one sets to his task. The noise and bluster gradually subsides and before any glass is half drained, dead silence reigns. The seeming lifeless bodies are scattered about the room. They appear to have voted, farewell to Brongy’s “Farmer’s High- ball.” Last of all, we would like to know what happened to Brong after the auto- mobile breakdown. rr 44 WILLIAM LAWRENCE CASKEY 3029 Rhawn St., ERlmesburg Philadelphia, Pa.

Door slightly open and we strutted in. We take a look at the sleeping figure and decide to wait till he gets up for the day. The wait was long. About four o’clock a solemn-faced boy appeared with his bathrobe drawn about him. (This is Kidder.) He made a beeline for the mandolin and started picking some weird tune. “What are you playing?” asked one of the hearers. “Just snatches from some of the Hawaiian love songs,” said Kidder. “Aren ' t they great?” Then he started to hum. He slowly got awake and drifted into some rag, always keeping excellent time. Now he started to sing and his melodious voice filled the air (?). Every one was too tired to move, except to put on ear warmers. Kidder now had them at his mercy. Slowly he puts the mandolin away and decides on some more sleep.

Class Football (3). Reformed. Independent. Teaching. Clauss is a fine noble looking young man (see cut). He has a serious expression (?) which has dragged him thru many a tight pinch. He once tried it on in a physics lecture by trying to walk out “ in media res,” but after due thought and some coercion came back ‘‘apud nos.” Clauss’ chief occupation is keeping Kistler company. When you see one you must see the other. We must confess we do not know Edwin very well, as he is always a little reticent about making friends. We do know he has been a loyal classmate and has ‘‘acquired merit” by having participated in several class battles. One may sit thru a whole class with Clauss and not know that he is present, while on the other hand he may give violent and sudden warning of his presence. To get at the exact makeup of Clauss we would have to have a chemical analysis and find to what group he belongs. Edwin’s weakness, we hinted, was his fondness for Kistler and Ford. Some one was mean enough to say that Clauss was too lazy to walk and stuck around for a ride, but this is untrue, for Clauss would sooner walk with Kistler than ride with any one else. He will in after years spend his time training the young mind to appreciate the beauties of education. I. NOBLE DUNDORE Myerstown, Pa. Born at Lebanon, Pa., May 17, 1896.

I knocked at the door. “Come,” called a voice from within. I entered the room only to find Dundore busily wearing out his index fingers on a Remington. “Noble,” said I with the air of one who is intruding on a busy man at an important task, “have you anything on Monday” ? “I don ' t know.” He looked at his schedule. “Yes, filled up Monday.” “Tuesday?” “Filled up Tuesday.” Here the typewriter commenced to click, but I have been a book agent, so I continued : “How about Wednesday?” “Filled.” “Wednesday at four?” “Extra French, four to five.” “Thursday?” “Busy all day.” “How about evening?” “Literary Society.” Now, far be it from us, reader, to keep one soul from a literary society meeting, so we hasten on saying, “Perhaps Friday morning would suit”? “No, but Friday afternoon will.” Ah, cruel stroke! Friday afternoon we have drama and far be it from us to incriminate ourselves for the next two hours, but we said amid the rattle of the type- writer and with pseudo nonchalance, “Friday afternoon, we too are busy.” Then a brilliant thought. “How about Saturday? You can easily get an hour or two then.” “I am going home Saturday.” Reader, it can’t be done. It is simply impossible to make an engagement with Dundore. He is like a theatrical star booked an entire season ahead and no chance engagements, as all know who have had the ambition and temerity to beard 344G in his den. His life is run on schedule time, there are no waste moments in vain efforts. In Dundore we have efficiency plus. JAMES E. ERNST R. F. D., No. i, Mohrsville, Pa.

" “You seem to me to be about one of the most interesting characters that the Lord of Creation could create. " “What makes you think so? " “Because you always think and act in exactly the same way as everybody thinks you do, pap !’’ “If that is the case, I suppose it is because I try to live a temperate, unemotional life. Horace’s Ode on the Golden Mean is something remarkable. Do you know anything about it?” “Yes, I also studied it and I like it.” “That is what I always like to adopt. It is not the emotionalist that makes this world. No, it is the man who meets everything that comes up in a quiet and easy way. Let me give you some advice — never do anything out of the ordinary. It doesn ' t pay. Be a part of the world. Live your own life, then the world cannot criticise you. I would not desire to have my name on the front pages of the news- papers, because it might make somebody believe that I desired notoriety. That would be more than infamous.

Teach ing. “I had a h — of a time getting back to college,” gasped Euchler, as he looked up from the sheet of paper upon which he was writing. He had just returned from his Christmas vacation. “I hate to write home to dad for money, so soon, but what am I to do? I am dead broke. I have the worst luck whenever I try to make train connections in Philadelphia, yet I rather enjoy the situation. When I came to Philadelphia 1 had two hours’ time to attend to my date (which was with a high school girl, by the way) and then get out to Sixty-ninth Street. When I got to Sixty-ninth Street the Allen- town cars could not leave because of the ravishes of the storm. Mike and I started full speed for the railroad station. We arrived there just two minutes’ late. The next train would leave at ten o’clock, they told us. Of course, I wished that I could spend all this time with my Jane; but it was useless. We bunked up at the station until ten o’clock and arrived in Allentown at four in the morning. I was hungry, sleepy and penniless and to think of the blamed slow traveling is dreadful.” John became animated. He rolled up the sleeves of his flannel shirt, sleeked his hair, glanced at his trousers, and swung his heavy shoes on the table with a thud and thunder that awakened Wirebach from one of his poetic dreams. Next he glanced at the especially selected feminine figures arranged upon the walls of his room. The glance did its work. He was thinking of bygone days. “I had the real good time of my life last summer while at the Pocono Pines. I used to deliver the groceries among the cottagers. In August the afternoons were as hot as blazes and, you know, the women tried to keep cool. While delivering, all of a sudden I would come around the back corner carrying a basket and — well. The darkies used to give me all kinds of cookies. I used to take a piece of pie. Almost every evening they had lawn dances where old and young would join in paying honor to the Graces. But the most delicious evenings of all were spent skipping over the silvery wavelets of the lake by the moonlight. I certainly had some roaring time.” NORMAN R.

I only attend first-class elevating shows. A real high-class opera or drama are the only shows that I have time to attend. This fickle stuff is nothing for a busy man.” “Pardon me, Duke, but I thought you were a frequent visitor at that place.” “No, you see I want to set a moral example to my classmates and fellow students. Too many of us have no conception at all of the obligation that we owe to society. I personally feel that I ought to set an example in that direction.” “You are very much different from most other students for the ministry — you evidently believe in practicing what you preach.” “That is my motto exactly — ‘Practice what you preach.’ Could anybody have a better motto? If, for instance, I believed that a pers on ought to commune occa- sionally with Bacchus, I would get busy and worship daily at his altar. If I was fully convinced that a person should swear and curse and use other necessarily em- phatic terms, I would affirm my statements with such localisms.” “I never knew that you were as frank and conscientious as all this.” “Frankness, openness, meekness, humility — they are my petty virtues.” “Duke, thou art noble.” WILLIAM H.

The fellows leave Sammy after an hour’s argument. “Do you know Sammy always takes everything seriously,” said the one. “Yes, I noticed,” said the other, “especially training for the Minister- Pagan game.” “And now,” said a third, “if training is the prime factor in track Sammy will be the streak of lightning.” “But, fellows,” said the fourth, “you forget that Sammy studied Latin with all WALDEMAR L.

This gentleman is a swimming fiend and has a string of medals a yard long. lie spoiled five or six prospective jobs for Scranton undertakers, yet he never told us a word about it. It is rumored the American Undertakers’ Association is educating him for the ministry, so that he will not become a professional life-saver. As an entertainer “Bumps” is a live wire and many a party has gathered around the fireplace in “Galley’s” room to sing, tell stories and swap lies. The one draw- back to these gatherings is Heffley, who insists on going to bed at 10.30 and thus dampens (?) the ardor of the crowd. “Bumps” is a remarkable student. He has been known to recite in class while fast asleep. He can speak English and German fluently, can tell a good story and knows how to read. Who has not thrilled to hear him read the dramatic speeches of Anthony and Brutus, the philosophy of Hamlet, the ribaldry of Falstaff, the tenderness of Heine and the Abscheid lied from the “Trompeter of Sakkigcn ”? Waldemar is to be a minister. All we can say is “Happy will be the church that gets him.” PAUL JULIUS GEBERT hi Schuylkill Ave., Tamaqua, Pa. Born at Tamaqua, Pa., May 22, 1896.

But at that moment the aroma of a well-blended cigarette reached my nose and I continued, “But you can give me a cigarette.” Those were the fatal words and the next few minutes were engaged by Gebert in a lecture on smoking and “bumming ' ' cigarettes. This he concluded by handing me a pack of “Home-Run” cigarettes (20 for 5 cents). 1 had but started to enjoy the smoke when Gebert began to tell me all about our coming Biology quiz and said, “Ask me any question on this animal dope and I’ll answer it — sure as you know, Al.” Trying to trip him up I asked him to classify “Geranium maculatum” (a flower), and he placed it among the vertebrates in Zoology. I had called his bluff, for he has been working this “Yoh Eddy” stuff overtime, of late. He now began to work away on the typewriter, for he passes as an excuse for a stenographer. In this connection we might mention that he quite frequently pulls an “A” in the religion course. “Geb,” said I (we call him “Geb” for short, altho he insists his pet name is “Tiny”), “have you been down to see any of the fights lately?” “No, and if you want to see some clever boxing come up to Tamaqua,” he replied. I told him we did not have to go to Tamaqua to see fights and that if he wanted to see something clever he had better step up to me. Now, Gebert is a pretty hard guy, and some basketball star, and when he made a move to come after me, our conver- sation was quickly ended by a hurried exit.

Were you speaking Hebrew?” “No, I was speaking everyday English. What does this expression — ‘super- cilious ostentation of an erudite vacuity’ mean?” “Don’t you know what that means? Every college student who has studied any languages at all, should be acquainted with that hackneyed term.” “Tell me then what it does mean.” “All right, I’ll tell you. There are two distinct terms in the statement — first, a supercilious ostentation is an ethnological implication of a hypothetic eccentricity, so displayed that it assumes the proportion of a mere exhibition for fanciful and ostentatious lovers of open pomposity. In short, ostentation is the perfect antonym of unobtrusiveness. Do you now apprehend the perfect composite significance of that grandiloquence? The component ingredients of the second element of that bombastic utterance involve a technical peremptory expostulation. An erudite vacuity is a heterogeneous conglomeration of a homogeneous situation, evolving from a definite conception of the vacuist as opposed to that of the plenist. Don’t you perceive that the vacuous existence, which does exist about and in the indenta- tions of all molecules is non-replete, and that the eruditious scholar of that vacuity needs the essential osteological elements of hydrodynamics in order to have a precise mental discernment and a fuller understanding of the term? Do you think you understand it now?” “Yes, that was a very clear explanation.” 55 H. ERNEST HART 1 NG 120 N. iith St., Allentown, Pa. Born at Oley, Pa., April 23, 1895.

I almost fainted on the spot, for to me promptness at an eight o’clock recitation seemed to approach the impossible. However, I have heard that Harting reaches college before daybreak; but do not misinterpret this, for he does not participate in “all-night” parties and in addition has never smoked. Not wishing to detain him any longer than necessary I immediately questioned him on his favorite topic of conversation. “How is it that you are not at the horse bazaar this morning?” I inquired. (The big secret — he expects to be a veterinary surgeon and is a regular attendant at all the cattle sales held within a radius of twenty miles.) “Why, I’ll tell you,” he replied. “This great war has taken away the best of our horse flesh.” He then began to discourse on the various diseases of swine, etc., and concluded with the remark, that the only thing worrying him in life was the number of years he would have to spend in getting an education. This gave me the cue to nervously continue, “Aren ' t you afraid all the girls will be picked out before you are ready to marry?” “No,” was the immediate reply, “the girls never bother me.” And it is true, for in all the twenty or more years’ existence in the world he has never been known to have escorted a female.

By the way, you take too many chances, both with a ear and otherwise. You must have lost all your common sense on the rail- road. You are a regular maniac with a car.” “Come out of it, Joe. The railroad is all right. I mean to be President some day.” “That’s good, then you’ll have a car to run on tracks, which will be safe. I gu ess you’ll be real king with the girls.” “Yep, that’s me. I guess I’ll stroll over to the dorms. So long.” “Topsy” marched to his favorite haunt and accosted the occupant, “Make a date for me next week, will you?

Hayes arose and took a pack of cards from the drawer. “Take a card,” he said. “Now watch me, boys, nothing up either sleeve. Get it. (Big laugh.) Simple, boys. Here’s another — Yo, Eddie.” “Don ' t you ever get tired of card tricks, Louie?” came a question. “Let me show you just this one. Got a cigarette? Thanks. Now watch. There, now it’s gone. Some trick, eh? Better lay off now, those ought to be enough for you to think about. Isn ' t this fine weather. Give me the summer and Asbury Park. Boys, you want to come down and sec me this summer. Got a real job. Get a bit of the real life. All this stuff we are pulling in the gym will come in fine to pull on the sand.” One by one the fellows file out. And yet Louie appears serious. All gone. Louie picks the cigarette from his sleeve, lights it and strolls over to talk a little logic with Aristotle, his roommate. Such is life. “Hello! ‘Coke Hecky’! I see you’re fussed up some tonight, are going to Reading again.’’ I made a rapid searching glance about the room which impressed upon me the mental condition of the occupant. In the center of the room was a square table loaded with books, scraps of paper, apple peels, onions, cigar stumps, a cap, gloves and numerous other vanities. Upon the four walls of the room were crowded and amassed in a haphazard way, pictures, pennants, posters and almanacs. The floor was dirty, the bookcase open, the cushions scattered, a curtain missing and the air musty. While I was gaping absent-mindedly at this bedlam, “Coke” reappeared from the sleeping room. “What’s wrong? Have a seat,” ventured Heckman, as he clung to the edge of the table and continued : “I don’t know, I am really disgusted with life. I have given up great business opportunities in order to follow what I thought was my calling. My ideas are, well, I mean, I look at things from quite a different angle than when I left high school.” “That is very simple. It is this. First, you are in love, and next, you have just begun to look things squarely in the face (as they say).” Heckman seemed to be lost in thought. His widely opened eyes were staring vacantly into space; but presently he began: “Mother always thought of me as the one who would take up some kind of educa- tional work. I was graduated from Hamburg High School, and in the fall entered Kutztown Normal School with the intention of making good. I never bothered much about women while at Normal. But in the German class there was a girl that struck my attention the very first day. The professor used to call her ‘Grace’ — always, only — ‘Grace.’ I inquired about her. Even though she always attracted me, I never had the chance to get next to her on account of the other fellows, until commencement day. From then on — well — we have about de — cid — ed.” (Poor boy.) 59 WAYNE W. HEFFLEY Friedensburg, Pa. Born at Birdsboro, Pa., July 8, 1895. Prepared at Birdsboro High School.

Out into the country.” “No, I guess I had better stay here. I have some work that must be done.” “Ah, com’ on! Ed Landis’s going along and we won ' t be gone long.” “No, you had better go. This work must be done.” “All right.” Several hours later Jim came back to my room. He was dressed in an old jersey, a pair of old trousers and old shoes. But as for the sight that met my gaze, reader, form your own impression from Jim’s conversation. “Gee, Ed, but we had some walk. You should have been with us.” “Yes, I take notice. It was some walk. Where were you?” “We went up the Slatington road to Greenwalt’s and cut across the fields to the Seventh Street road. Mud, just look at my shoes.” Well! I looked. Perchance I had overlooked something. But sure enough it was all there. Not one grain or particle was missing. “Well,” I said, “where did you pick up that field?” “Hi-hi-hi! Oh, when we cut across at Greenwalt’s. Believe me, those fields were muddy.” “I don’t doubt it. Your looks seem to indicate mud.” “Gimme a smoke.” “Get it yourself.

Out of this agitated matter a car swung up the driveway. The speed was maintained till the car came to a sudden stop in front of the dorms. A handsome rosy-cheeked boy looked out and yelled. His quarry soon appeared. “Hello, Tillie,” echoed the newcomer. “Hey you!” came from the car. “Do you want to go on a date tonight?” “Aw, I don’t know,” came the answer. “Anyway what can we talk about? We can’t tell stories under a table.” “Come off, that’s a simple matter. We ' ll dance a little, talk a little. I’ll tell them about my brother at P. M. C. — you ' ve heard of that place. I was down in the car the other week and, believe me, they run some fine dances there. We should run more here at school. Well, will you go on this date? Hurry up and tell me, because I must get the car in shape.” “I don’t know. I ought to study, Joe,” drawled his companion. “Study!” replied Joe. “Save it for tomorrow night. This is a date. Just a bit of the social stuff, and then — ” “All right,” came quickly. “So long, Archie.” “So long” was echoed from the car and off went the machine with a rush, the famous track athlete settling comfortably behind the wheel. 61 “On the sad seashore! Always to hear the moaning of the dismal waters! Listen, I will tell you my story, my story of love, of misery, of black despair. She whom I adore, whom I still adore, is the wife of a fat millionaire. A lop-eared, blear-eyed, greasy millionaire! A man without a soul, a man without a sentiment, who cares naught for moonlight and music. I hate him. She my empress, my soul’s delight, my angel, is superbly beautiful. I saw her but a moment, perhaps, but she took me captive, then and there, forevermore! Forevermore! She wrote me that I might come and see her at her own home. Oh, joy, joy, unutterable, to see her at her own home! I went to see her after nightfall, in the soft moonlight. She told me her grievance. That very morning, at breakfast, her husband had cursed the fish balls and the pickled onions. Her tears fell fast. I too wept. I mixed my tears and sobs with hers. ‘Fly with me,’ I cried. Her lips met mine. I held her in my arms. I felt her breath upon my cheek. It was hunkey. Fly with me to New York! I will write romances for the Sunday papers, real romances with morals to them. My style will be appreciated. Shop girls and the young mercantile persons will adore it, and I will amass wealth with my ready pen. Ere she could reply — ere she could articulate her ecstacy — her husband crept snakelike upon me. Shall I say it? He kicked me out of the garden — he kicked me into the street. I did not return. How could I? I so ethereal, so full of soul, of sentiment, of sparkling originality! He so gross, so lop-eared, so practical! Had I returned the creature would have kicked me out again. So I left the city for this place, this place — so gay, so inspiring, so romantic. Alas, my love! Oh, dear!” 62 THOMAS B. KECK Cedar Bluff, Allentown, Pa. Born at Allentown, Pa., November 13, 1895.

Did you ever notice a short, squatty student walking slowly across the campus, both hands in his pockets, eyes directed toward the ground and a pessimistic coun- tenance? That was Tommy Butz Crab Keck. I happened to be in a frivolous mood and decided to tone myself down by con- versing with Keck. “Well, Tommy,’’ said I, “what did you do in your Logic quiz?’’ “Oh, I didn ' t study a thing and I guess that I flunked the darn stuff, " he replied. “Our Junior year is entirely too difficult and I do not have time to do my work.” “No time to study!” I dubiously remarked. “How is that?” “Pshaw, since we moved out into the country near Cetronia, I have to walk or take the Kutztown and Reading trolley line and I can’t depend on either. All the fellows are kidding me about milking the cows and feeding the chickens; it is not as bad as all of that, but, believe me, it sure is unhandy. I guess that I’ll have to quit school and get a job down at Traylors or some other place. I expect to take up medicine or dentistry, but they tell me that you have to study like the deuce to get thru down at Penn, so I guess I might as well go to work. And even at that, I’d have my evenings off, and could go down town without worrying about my classes for the next day.” That was a give-away, for Tommy does usually spend his evenings down town in the vicinity of the Lehigh Valley Railroad station, but “There’s a Reason.” Ask “Grapenuts.” WELLINGTON R.

Do you know, I really enjoy a smoke once in a while.” “You don’t say,” was the reply. He struck a match and lit his rope.

Pulling on a piece ot rawhide a couple of times he restarted the engine without leaving his seat. It was a revelation and I asked him how he did it. “Oh, yes,” he replied, “that’s a pretty good invention, ain’t it? You see my pop doped that out and there’s good money in it, for it is the cheapest self-starter on the market. Clauss and I (and they are inseparable companions) are going to sell them this summer.” I congratulated him on the opportunity the invention offered him and suggested that he could write an excellent thesis on this subject. For Sam Kistler is a student, especially interested in oratory, English, a little Greek and the like. However, he lacks knowledge of the sciences and is limited to the narrow confines of classicism. I realize that he has what is termed a “cinch course,” and when I asked him what classes he had that afternoon he naturally replied, " Ach nothing!” Continuing, he said, “I am going to look for pupils this afternoon, as I expect to tutor some high school boys in German. Just wait, I ' ll soon have them translating some of the most difficult work of Goethe and Schiller.” 1 had my doubts on the subject and thought him over-confident, but remained silent and imagined Sam Kistler teaching Wilhelm Tell.

Before we begin, will everybody please remove their hats. We will open our business session with the reading of the minutes by the secretary. You have heard the reading of the minutes.

The Leaguers have socials to which the famished college boys, who are religiously inclined, come for a square meal. At these socials most of our lady members succeed in capturing a young man, for the evening at least. The man seems to do the ladies a lot of good (loud applause). In conclusion I wish to say, may the contest be successful, may the socials continue, and may the ladies reap the benefit.” GEORGE ADAM KUNKLE Aquashieola, Pa.

It was a cold morning when George Kunklc, who hails from the town of Aquashic- ola (a suburb of the city of Slatington located somewhere in Pennsylvania), came trudging thru the deep snow. He was loaded down with a suitcase filled with books and eats, for he had just returned from a week-end visit to the old home town. “Hello there, George,” said I. “How are you?” “My goodness,” he replied, “I’ve had the rheumatism for the last few days that I can scarcely walk. It’s just like when I was down at Perkiomen Seminary, I’d get these rheumatism spells.” I extended him my sympathy and tried to cheer him up, but failed. “It wouldn’t be so bad,” he continued, “if it had come at another time. But I couldn ' t teach my Sunday School class last Sunday and I ' ll have to miss the County Teachers’ Institute this week.” “Teachers’ Institute!” said I. “Why are you interested in that?” He thereupon revealed to me that he had been a rural pedagogue several years ago, but being intellectually ambitious had deserted that profession to attend college. “But you are not going to teach school after graduation here?” 1 inquired. “No,” he replied. “I am taking the A. B. course and expect to enter the ministry. I have very good notes on the history of religion and if I can stand it, I expect to become a foreign missionary worker.” Now that his plans for the future are known, let every one aid Kunkle in securing an appointment among the heathen tribes; Japan or the Fiji Islands preferred. Very rarely has nature succeeded in producing such a composite individual as we find in Landis. He is tall, handsome and athletic. He is witty, versatile and woman- wise. His most obtrusive jokes always fall flat because he does not explain and apply them. He is coolness personified. In spite of all these qualities he has two faults. He loves his feet. He will spend an entire hour admiring his lower extremities. His other fad is Dates. He enjoys Allentown society intensely, but “Nothing steady for me” is his usual expression. One evening after returning from a date, he sat in a chair in front of the hearth in which we had built a coke fire and he soliloquized in this poetic strain: “Summer girl! Oh, summer girl, you have set my head awhirl! With your lips so cherry red, you’ve completely turned my head! To your alabaster brow I make an everlasting vow, and the gold glint of your hair is my joy and my despair. “Charming girl! Oh, charming girl, in life’s oyster you’re the pearl! Who can dance like unto thee? Every step is poetry. When you laugh or when you sing, ’tis like angels murmuring. When the gardens you pass by, roses weep in jealousy. “Summer girl! Oh, summer girl, who’d not love thee is a churl! Who’d deride thee is a crab, with a spirit drear and drab. Who indeed could criticise one possessed of azure eyes, like to those twin orbs of thine, with their depth so crystalline! “Sweetest girl! Oh, sweetest girl, at thy feet my all I hurl! I care not how many swains lie imprisoned in your chains — let me have for my small part just one-twen- tieth of your heart. Let me be your fiance every other Saturday!” 68 “Hello, Doc, how are you?” “Fine!” “I want to talk to you a few minutes.” “Fire away, but make it brief. I do not desire to be detained in anyway this morning — I am in a hurry.” “I simply want to ask you a few questions. What do you consider the earmarks of the real college man?” “Broad-mindedness, punctuality and a businesslike method of doing things.” “To which of them do you attribute your success?” “To all of them. I try to be broad-minded enough not to indulge in these small trivialities. That I leave to the more eccentric fellows. I care not a continental for many of those petty ideals that many of you are preaching daily. If anybody wants to quibble about them, let him do so; but that is the work of the idiot or the near-idiot. Then I always like to be punctual at all occasions, and do my business in a businesslike way. The trouble with you fellows is that you are all too conventional. Your minds can- not grasp the important things in an important way.” “What do you do with your leisure time?” “Leisure time. I do not have any. I do manage to see a good show once in a while, however. I generally attend the Orpheum twice a week. That does me good. I realize, however, that most of your minds would be somewhat affected.

The back door of the Ad building was pushed open and a tall, brown-faced figure, with tortoise- rimmed spectacles covering half his head, appeared. In one hand he lightly swung a tennis racket and in the other skillfully maneuvered several tennis balls. “Say, Mader, what is going on today? An important match?” inquired an inquisitive Freshman . “No, no,” came in a beautiful bass voice from this tennis enthusiast, “just perfect- ing a few strokes that I want to try in Easton.” Now it seems Mader has a longing to be in Easton and gather biology specimens in that vicinity. He is a student in this line of work and appears very much interested. “You look like a student, Mr. Mader,” said the Frosh. “Yes, I will be the singing biologist and exercise by playing tennis,” came over the shoulder of the departing white clad figure. (Seriously.) “How were the movies last night, John?” “Fairly passing: I saw better shows already.” " Going to Mealey’s tonight?” “No, sir, I cut out Mcaley’s for the rest of the week.” “Yes, John, I personally do not think that dancing has a wholesome effect on you.” “That is what you know about it. I know what 1 am doing and what I can do. You do not have to come around here and tell me what I have to do. I don ' t stand for that from anybody, not even from my brother. Do you think I would take it from you? No sir, not from anybody.” “Now don’t get sore about it. Can ' t you stand a little kidding?” “Ah, kidding. If you want to kid me, try and kid me about something worth while — not about such a little thing. I am not sore, only you guys make me tired. I can do as I please, can’t I? It won ' t affect you what I do. So you should worry. And I know my position better than you can tell me. In fact, you would better attend to your own affairs. When I want to argue with anybody, I shall send for a fellow that can argue.” “All right. Good night, John. Good luck to you.” JOHN E. MOHN 49 Market St., Gowen City, Pa.

What’s wrong with you, Taylor? Stop your singing and play ball.” Moyer was in an excited condition. The day students had organized basket- ball with its usual rigamarole. Moyer was the captain and manager of his team. He was also the star forward. He has excellent qualities for the making of a basket- ball player. He is tall, he has long arms and legs, in fact his entire physical make-up is that of an athlete. And last of all he possesses a cool head and a quick eye. He was simply a wonder on the floor. On November 29th, I overheard the following conversation between him and Harting, the basketball magnate: “I suppose, Harting, you grasp the significance that we must win the first series in order to get the financial support. And I think that we can easily win the first series if the other four men can each keep his man from scoring. I feel quite confident that I can control my guard and score an average of, at least, fifteen points each game.” The game they were playing today was the last in the first series. The score in games was tie. Moyer had staked his all on winning this game. In the last few seconds the opposing team scored and Moyer was defeated. A hand to hand fight ensued. There was an uproar; yells, war-whoops, sighs, groans, and laughter deafen the air. At last the players are separated. A grave-like stillness follows. Upon the floor lies a limp human figure, with pale, haggard, but determined features. Doc Heffiey is summoned and after due examination declares the death of Moyer was caused by the effacing of the " bone of contention,” a direct result of his defeat. There- upon with bowed heads we solemnly hastened out of the cage, chanting the familiar dirge, “The Old Family Tooth Brush.” 72 JOHN F. RUHE 24 S. 13th St., Allentown, Pa.

When John first came to Muhlenberg he became the pet of the upper classmen; he was so young that he looked more like a mascot than a really to goodness Freshman. Alas, time rolls on and in due course Johnny became just as big as the rest of his classmates. We say it was time. Perhaps it was Siegers, the “mole Eva Tanguay.” No sketch of Ruhe’s scholastic career would be complete without mention of Siegers. For they are shadows one to another. If Siegers is sick, Ruhe is absent; if Siegers cuts, Ruhe is absent; if a quiz is on, both are absent. Apart from this peculiar love for noise, John is perfectly normal and he himself is very quiet. John has lots of pep and always came to the aid of his class when any battles were to be fought. It was a great relief to John’s companions and struck terror to the heart of the Sophs whenever John, clad in his war togs, and with his long hair flapping around his ears like a Japanese sunbonnet, came charging across the field. After graduation, John will build a house on the Jordan where he will spend his time watching over Siegers. EB ROLAND LEROY RUPP Breinigsville, Pa. Born at Seipstown, February 18, 1893.

Why that man can no more make the Presidency than 1 could (get the personal note, reader). Why, Bryan could stand as good a chance as Taft. Wilson is the man. The more I study the situation, the more I am convinced that Wilson is the only logical candidate for the office, however.” I noticed this little peculiarity of sticking in “however,” whether occasion demanded or not. However, to get on, I again asked, “Do you think Teddy Roosevelt — ?” “There now, you hit it. However, Roosevelt is not the man for the job. Never- theless, I believe that he is the only man that the Republicans can logically advance.” Being “among those mentioned” I here forgot my mission long enough to agree for Governor Hughes and the discussion switched on to the referendum. “I believe most heartily in it and the time will come when it will be a matter of national political importance.” “How do you stand on prohibition?” “Ah, gosh! I don’t know what to say. However, I sometimes think we ought to have it and again we cannot take it from the community without a substitute. As a factor in causing industrial accidents” — and here, gentle reader, let us slip quietly away. Roland can talk for days and weeks on local option and prohibition. We may expect to find him some day twisting the political threads of our country, for Roland intends to become a lawyer. VICTOR A. RUTH Macungie, Pa. Born at Lehigh Church, January 26, 1891.

Attending the Lyric Theatre some time ago I was surprised to find myself seated in the second row, immediately back of Victor. As the show had not yet begun, I said to him, “I did not expect to see you here tonight.” ‘‘Oh, yes,” he replied. ‘‘I attend quite regularly. We have many students at college, ministerial students at that, who never saw a real first-class play in their lives.” “Do you consider a thorough conception of the stage and its effects upon society as abso lutely necessary for the modern minister?” “By all means. How can a minister preach against vice and the mysterious and the foul methods of its work if he does not see some of those methods depicted on the stage?” “What plays would you advise the average ministerial student to see from time to time?” “ ‘September Morn,’ ‘The Traffic,’ ‘Maid in America, ' ‘Omar the Tent Maker,’ etc.; in fact, every play that comes to town.” " Haven’t most of the students seen those plays already?” “No, we have men here who regard all plays as demoralizing. Men like Schwenk, Kraft, Heckman, Dundore, never saw a play.” “What do you think of the Orpheum?” “The shows are great. They spur you on in your fight against vice and sin. I never miss any of them.” (Just then the curtain rose and then this authority on the theatre was all attention.) y 75 A tall, husky-looking fellow came walking across the campus taking long strides, equal to three steps of the average man, and balancing, in both hands, traveling bags of such enormity as to be termed “young trunks.” As he drew nearer I was able to identify the stranger as C. Morris Scheetz, return- ing to school after one of his frequent trips to the old homestead. “My days,” he uttered, somewhat out of breath, “I’ll surely have to cut out smok- ing to get in good condition for baseball this summer. Sure thing, I have to go some to live up to my reputation as catcher of the Perkasie High and Mercersburg nines. Remember our Freshman year class team? We played some ball.” His reference to the past brought back to my memory an incident that had also occurred the year before. “Do you remember,” I said, “when they took your trunk down town and removed your bed into the outer world beneath the open sky? (‘23d and Chew Sts.) Why did they do that?” I inquired. I had Scheetz puzzled and finally he answered, “I don’t know.” But we know why they played the trick; for jealousy is the root of all evils and it must be publicly confessed. He is possessed with the love-bug. But there is one redeeming feature that he has thus far been able to perform something which is con- sidered a miracle among the students, and that is, to love and study at the same time. Within the last year, however, his absence from the dorms, especially evenings, has steadily decreased and the class of 1917 still has hopes of planting the ivy. 76 I WILLIAM P.

The Lyric Hall was crowded, but close to the rail, with eagle eye and face bulging, was our friend Bill. “That is a pretty good wad of gum you have in your mug, Bill,” said one of his side-kicks. “Yes,” said Bill, and the floor received a healthy shower. “Coming up to the gym tomorrow? I have my usual work-out.” Now in all seriousness “Babe” has a promising physique and great aspirations- He can usually be seen in some pugilistic pose and doing some funny pokes. Hard, well I should say. James J. will say on his deathbed, “And to you, ‘Babe,’ I give the paperweight crown.” The boy is fast (with the pencil). He doesn’t miss a word in a lecture and believes in hard study. Brains add weight is quite true. ELWOOD SCHWENK 541 E. Philadelphia Ave. Boyertown, Pa. Born at Red Hill, Pa., October 28, 1894.

There I put in several valuable years of my life. But Boyertown is not alone dear to me, because I was born there and because it contains the Boyertown casket factory. By no means — there is a much stronger reason for me being proud of Boyertown. Has Boyertown not reared my own Stella? You bet your life it has — and some Stella she is. Happy am I when my course in the Seminary is completed and I and my Stella can take passage on that sea of all seas — the sea that means anchorage in worldly bliss. Yes, my friends, all the dramatic art that I possess could not be utilized to express my supreme ambition and the longing with which I pine for that day when we shall finally cast our anchor and begin the work of life together. Before I close let me also tell you that I am going to study for the ministry. No one can have a higher ambition. I love my work, I love my church, and my religion. After all, I am a man of conviction — and let me tell you in time — never attempt to convince me your way, for my way is always better.” BELA SHETLOCK Egypt, Pa.

Don ' t you know that Cleopatra was an Egyptian? And me — look at me — I claim Egypt as my birthplace and Egypt today is proud of me. ' " ‘‘It is a wonder that they can appreciate a good thing when they have it.” “That is the great virtue of the people of Egypt. But wait until I get out of college — wait until they give me a chance — wait until I tackle the real problems of life, then they will see the stuff that their son is made of.” “Going to show your colors, eh?” “I certainly am. And there will be no mistake about my colors. If this wicked and ignorant world can be moved by any mortal — no, I am too modest to say that I will be its savior, but I will act as its shepherd. I will tell the world ' how things should be done. The world needs a practical philosophy, a practical leader. I am confident that I can fill this demand.” ■ WILLIAM SHETLOCK Egypt, Pa.

Bill and Bela are brothers. Bela is very vociferous and cocky, while Bill is calm, quiet and sedate. We were indeed sorry to see him leave our midst, but on the other hand we are proud of his recognized ability. We are also glad that he will continue as a member of our class. Bill is a foxy fellow. Upon your first meeting him you would think him a confirmed bachelor. I have caught faint rumors that he is as good as married, but we will let that to him. He is very tricky, and is fond of pulling off something original. Recently he related an interesting experience of his to me, which I will try to repeat. “I had just stepped into the parlor. My girl lay helplessly back, looking up into my pleading eyes. She could not speak, she could not move. She seemed to notice that I was gradually coming nearer and nearer. Yes, indeed, she was young and she was beautiful. She beheld me gazing upon her heaving bosom as though I would search her very heart. I must have had a fiendish satisfaction in my face. Horrors! Be calm, please, be calm, I whispered. She closed her eyes. I was breathing deeply. She steadied herself, ready for the worst. I was about to speak, while she listened in horrible suspense for the words that were to decide all. Ah! at last! ‘Miss, I said, calmly, ‘ I am glad to see you again, did you not expect me? ' I never called on her again.” “Where is Johnny Ruhe?” This question was put to me by a rather eccentric looking young man. He was about five feet tall with sandy-colored complexion and light brown hair that were too individual in the tendencies to be combed in any one direction. His mouth extending from ear to ear when he smiled, gave him an un- canny, dwarfish appearance. His large blue wandering eyes were set in sockets of Turanian origin. His eyebrows were raised and lowered in rapid succession. The face twitched or puckered, either on one side or all over. His head nodded and hesitated, his hands slashed the air and his feet shuffled. His body was one continuous motion. His mechanism is claimed to be one of the wonders of this generation. His actions were more interesting than his talk. “I must do my own typewriting at present. I fired the girl I had been going with for the last two years and found another in Catasauqua, but she cannot typewrite. Ruhe told me to fire her and so I quite naturally did it. But through the aid of Johnny I found another one in Northampton. Hello, Shetlock, you should have been at the Orphcum yesterday afternoon. One of the actresses started to flirt with me. Ruhe thought she was flirting with him and began to blush. Her flirting made me feel giddy, and I said out loud, ‘ Whatefer you do don ' t! ' Rupp, vatever you mention for politics I gif you rite. Cribes, that’s nothing. Did you ever hear the story about ‘Abie and the money.’ Well, next summer I expect to go to Canada to visit my uncle and if I happen to land a good job I’ll say good-bye to college. Johnny Ruhe will, too. Where is Johnny Ruhe?” 81 . CORSON C. SNYDER Harleysville, Pa. Born at Harleysville, Pa., December 22, 1892. Prepared at Perkiomen Seminary.

A red-cheeked, slightly bow-legged student came hurrying up the steps of the Ad building and quickly crossed the football field where he relieved himself of head- gears and other gridiron paraphernalia. That will be our football manager next year and, believe us, he is one busy man. “Hey, Snyder, where is the dummy? " the coach brawls out. And then Corson is all action, hunting for freshmen to set up the tackle and tend the gate. He sort of peers over the top of his glasses and seems to possess a hypnotizing gaze that makes any human being obey his wishes, and especially the freshmen. He came up to me and said, “We have had a good season thus far this year, but I possess an affluent belief that with the approach of autumnal weather next year we will have the most distinguished aggregation of football stars that ever represented Muhlenberg College. " Do not appear surprised at the prefect language he uses, for it is a mere portion of the English he commands. Probably this characteristic is due to his environment, for he hails from the sedate town of Harleysville, Pa. That reminds me, he is also an orator. With his colleagues, Schwenk and Rupp, he has formed a debating team to defend questions of timely interest, such as National Prohibition, Socialism, and Preparedness. However, they seem to disagree politi- cally, and their other views on President Wilson’s Mexican policy have caused internal dissension. But I must conclude, for I dare not reveal any other features of Snyder’s personal life, for they are secrets known only to the members of his class. 82 WILLIAM H.

The talk drifted to girls and Stephens sat upright. “Talk about parlor athletics,” said one. “Ya, ya,” came explosively from Stephens. “Oh, yes, I’ll be ready for the date in a minute,” and he hurriedly left the room. “Gee, I like to hear Bill rave,” continued the fellow. “I hear he is stepping in on some one else’s beat.” “Well, a good-looking chap like Steve should make use of his gift of nature,” respond- ed the other, “and the old stuff, you know, is a whale of a football player andean pull this hero stuff.” The entrance of Bill interrupted them. He was immaculate, shoes shined and hat resting stylishly on his head. He started off, “Well a little of the old stuff, tonight. I feel fine. Got out of lessons this afternoon. (Student.) Boy, talk about pretty, SAMUEL B. SUSSMAN 608 Grant St., Allentown, Pa. Born at Namoxt, Russia, July 21, 1892- Came to United States, September 29, 1908. Prepared at Allentown High School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1913. Classical Course. A. H. S. Club. Fresh- men Honor Group. Hebrew. Independ- ent. Teaching. Sam Sussman was eagerly absorbing the contents of a book and at the same time consuming his lunch, while walking around in the basement during the noon hour. That is an excellent example of his scholarship and ambition, for he always manages to do three or four things at the same time and does them rightly. Soon he sat down and removed his glasses, for they seemed to bother him, and began to clean them. No, he did not use his handerchief to perform this daily task, but he utilized the lower portion of his necktie. This twofold application of a necktie had never occurred to me before and it illustrated Sussman’s ingenuity, for he has an extensive power of originality. I walked over to him and asked him to explain the construction of a difficult passage in Greek. “All right, I ' ll help you,” he said, pointing out with ease the subject, predicate and other features of the grammatical structure. He can really translate Greek of the highest order at sight, and can quote passages from De Amicitia. He is naturally acquainted with the Hebrew language and conducts a class of young men in his native dialect during his spare moments. However, not satisfied with a knowledge of the dead languages, he is now taking advanced Spanish and has completed a course in French. He is thus a linguist of no mean ability and could thus far qualify for entrance into the ministry. Still his name immediately suggests this as impossible. Because of his peculiar enunciation of the English language it has been found impossible to transcribe his conversations without the aid of a Russian interpreter. 84 ROBERT NORMAN TAYLOR 159 Turner St., Allentown, Pa.

Many a rum sucker’s hide is flaying on a barn door this morning.” “I imagine you endorse his sermon and his method, don’t you?” “Indeed, I do. He cannot take things too serious for me. I was never soused in my life and I fail to see why so many of our good church people ought to stick up for those rumsuckers.” “Biederwolf surely is a great agitator.” “An agitator? What do you mean? He is not an agitator; he is a preacher — a preacher of the type that Allentown ought to have more of. If Allentown had more men like Biederwolf this would be an entirely different city.” “Do you think he would reform things, somewhat?” “Reform it. Reform is not sweeping enough. I am going to aid him in this fight. We will drive all these damnable devils of foul-mouthed, dirty, whiskey-soaked, red-nosed boozers out of the church, out of politics, from the street. We are going to put a new city on the map — yes, we are going to make this town so hot for these worshippers of Bacchus that by the time that the campaign closes that the sun will shine on a new town, and — ” (At this moment I stole away without a word. I made my way rapidly to a first-class hotel around the corner that had promised me a page ad for this year book.) URBANUS S. WIREBACH 625 Berwick St., Easton, Pa.

Associate Editor of 1917 Ciarla. “Bayne” Wirebach was returning from a week-end visit to Easton, and appeared to be in a very happy mood. He began to talk about college and the weather, etc., and then began to speak about Lafayette College. “You know,” he said, “down at Lafayette they have an entirely different system of lecturin ' than out here. When I spent my Freshman year out there, they had one bear of a course in English. That is where I got my start in literary work, and Heutsch (among the missing) and I wrote poetry. That is my chief branch of learnin’, altho I like to listen to lectures on electricity and chemistry. The trouble is, I’m kept so busy that I have to cut many of the classes, and I guess they think that I’m loafin’. Why, I haven ' t had any time to do any writin’ within the last six weeks, and now they want me to get up an article for the Muhlenberg Weekly.” He kept jabbering away continuously as we walked along, and soon he referred to his favorite hobby, “The Muhlenberg Orchestra.” “We had orchestra practice tonight,” he said, “and it’s cornin’ along fine. ‘Pop’ 191 T Cl ARL A SOPHOMORE HISTORY T HE actual achievements of the class of 1918, during the scarce two years of its existence at Muhlenberg, are such as to require no embellishment on the part of the chronicler. Who of us feels not a thrill of pride at the recollection of our successes? One of the great outstanding facts of our career here is that up to the present time — near the close of our second year — we have not been defeated in an inter-class athletic contest or series of contests. As Freshmen we were unconquered in football, basketball, baseball and tennis, and took second place in the inter-class track meet, running 1916 close for first honors. Nor did we as Sophomores choose to rest content with laurels already won. First, on the gridiron, we demonstrated, for the benefit of the newcomers, football as it should be played, winning easily; next, we continued our course of instruction in the cage, taking the series in three straight games; a victory for 1918 in the cross-country run concludes the list for the present. The future is full of promise. Proud as we are of our prowess on the athletic field, we point with even greater satis- faction to the part we play in college affairs. There are six Sophomores in the Glee Club, a majority in both Band and Orchestra, a large representation in the Dramatic Association, while 1918 athletes are a big factor in all Varsity sports. The football programs and the college calendar published by our class won well-merited praise. Our college course is now half run. If we may judge the future by the past, are not these two years an augury of the happy conclusion of a successful race, an assurance of two more years of achievement and conquest — of devotion to Muhlenberg?

Member of the Class of 1918 Died July 23, 1915 95 Elliott N Puna 19 1 T Cl ARLA FRESHMAN HISTORY O N SEPTEMBER 15, 1915, Muhlenberg College opened her doors and extended her right hand of fellowship to the class of 1919, the fifty-second class in the history of our beloved Alma Mater. After carefully taking us out of the green packages in which we had been sent by parcel post, the faculty scrutinized us and decided that we as the class of 1919 were a most excellent collection of embryo ministers, professors, physicians, statesmen and traffic policemen. Accordingly we were enrolled, carefully instructed in college traditions and Freshman rules, and, with the aid of several Juniors, we organized, and then waited for developments. lln the annual class fights we had such an easy time of it that we almost concluded that Muhlenberg College was an excellent place to take the rest cure. The pole fight was for- feited to us. Then came the banner fight. With an air of confidence the Sophs marched down the field to the tree to which our banner was nailed. But that air of confidence was changed to one of sullen despair, when they saw a rawhide banner carefully nailed to the tree with forty-penny spikes. They struggled desperately, but it was all in vain. The signal to cease the fray was given and “our flag was still there.” We then lost the annual class football game, not because we had no gridiron stars but because they played on the varsity and were debarred from the class game. Three o our men have been granted the varsity “M” in football and a number of others did excel- lent work with the scrubs. We had a splendid basketball team and lost the series by a close margin. Our track prospects are exceptionally promising. Some of our men hold excellent records and will certainly do commendable work, both for the class and the college. But above all we pride ourselves in our scholarship. We have convincingly demon- strated that we possess talented men in the various fields of knowledge. Eight of the twenty men on the college glee club are members of our class. The class is active in literary work and has manifested its ability in the Freshman number of the Muhlenberg Weekly. “Meliora Sequamur” is the standard around which we shall continue to rally our forces throughout our college course. That we may be students of a type that will ever reflect the glory and honor of our noble Alma Mater, is the sincere aim and desire of the class of Nineteen Nineteen.

Ettinger, Ph. D., ’80 A S THE one alumnus in continuous connection with Muhlenberg College for forty- three years, I have been asked to contribute to this issue of the Ciarla an article on the tempting theme of “Remini scences.” Although well aware of the risk that a writer runs when he once begins to deal in such “Ancient History,” I did not have the heart to refuse the present generation a glimpse at the Muhlenberg of long ago. In September, 1873, I was brought to President Frederick A. Muhlenberg, who promptly conducted me to the regions below in the old building that has just been demol- ished at the comer of Fourth and Walnut Streets, where I spent three busy and happy years in the Preparatory Department, fitting myself for college, which I entered in the fall of 1876. As the first President of Muhlenberg and many of the early students came from Penn- sylvania College, Gettysburg, naturally the rules and regulations of the new college were largely modeled after those of the older institution. It will, no doubt, interest those students who now find it difficult to turn up promptly at 8.40 in the morning, to learn that in those good old times of long ago chapel services began at 7.40 A. M., with recitations from eight to twelve in the morning and one recitation from four to five in the afternoon, with a second chapel service, in earlier years, in the evening, and, somewhat later, immediately after recitations at five o’clock in the afternoon. And there were no electives. For four years I enjoyed a sinecure as tutor in the Academic Department. The tutor with but the slightest sort of authority was expected to maintain order among the college students in the building, and, in the evening it was his duty to go from room to room to see that the boys were in; for at eight o’clock, when the bell rang, the theory was, that the boys should be in their rooms and at work. Think of the delightful times a conscientious tutor must have had in maintaining order among a set of collegians on a floor with twelve to fifteen rooms opening on to a long hall resembling a corridor of the Lehigh County Jail ! Many a night the tutor was awakened by the rumbling noise of rolling cobblestones as they traveled the full length of the aforesaid hall, set in motion by some late-comers, returning probably from the hospitable “gast-haus” of “Pappy” Bickel on South Sixth Street. Those were the palmy days of student life, when the boys took their physical culture as an elective at twelve o’clock at night, when a heavy coal wagon was taken apart downstairs, its various component elements quietly carried up to the fifth floor and there on the afore- said fifth floor just as quietly put together again for the delectation and the employment of the janitor next morning. The entire proceeding was a beautiful illustration, in the concrete, of the processes of analysis in taking apart the said wagon on the first floor, and of synthesis in putting it together again on the fifth floor. Although no one was ever openly accused of this Herculean feat, yet suspicions sufficiently strong to have enabled a 109 - i 9 1 T CIA II LA Sherlock Holmes to bring the culprit to justice, pointed to at least one young man, whose light summer trousers from that time forth bore divers marks or stains of axle grease. But Synod week, when the President and the ministerial members of the Faculty were absent, was a carnival season for the students. I still count as one of the greatest achieve- ments of my official life as tutor the capture of a large military drum, which an enterprising town student had, out of the fullness of his heart, brought with him one evening, wherewith to lead the procession through the long halls of the college building. The appointments of those earlier days, when compared with those of the beautiful and commodious college plant now occupying its magnificent site of seventy-two acres, were decidedly primitive, although they may have been ever so conducive to the formation of firm moral fibre. The bathtubs were buckets, in the natural hardwood finish or hand painted as the aesthetic taste of the students dictated ; our electric lights were lamps filled with coal oil at eight cents a quart at a time when the blighting tyranny of the Standard Oil Company had not yet developed to lower the price of oil ; and our steam heat was furnished by a stove in each room, often standing on three legs with a brick in lieu of the fourth. What a miracle that no serious fires ever occurred under these primitive conditions of heating and lighting ! Wh ile to the pampered collegian of today these accommodations may appear to have been decidedly crude, yet they also had their advantages. To be sure, the students were obliged to carry their own coal up to the fifth floor ; but think of the convenience of dumping the ashes down the winding stairway and the added gratification of the janitor. Think of those janitors, each of whom was sui generis ! Engelbert Zenger, the German ; Frank Dent, the cockney Englishman, and Adam Rau, the Pennsylvania German, who indulged in verba sesquipedalia because he was the janitor of a college. I need not tell you which one of this trio, having been sent to the lumber yard for a hitching post, asked for an ’itching post. Even if the fly specks on the ceiling indicated the location of Aldebaran and the Dipper on this improvised celestial map, yet the ideals were lofty; the efforts of students and teachers were earnest; the distractions were less numerous, and the things of the spirit were still considered of greatest worth. While we justly glory in the present and hopefully look into the future, let us not forget the past and, above all, the men in that past that have made possible the present. For, to the scholarship and the character, the loving loyalty and the self-sacrificing services of Frederick A. Muhlenberg, Benjamin Sadtler, Theodore E. Seip, Davis Garber and Matthias H. Richards, Muhlenberg College owes a debt of gratitude that eternity alone can pay. 110 1 9 1 T CIARLA ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION INCORPORATED OFFICERS Howard S. Skip, D. D.

Too often have we been told what games we should have won, less often what games we should have lost, but seldom have we heard any praise for the efforts for our team. It is true that we lost five out of nine games. This, how- ever, is not a criterion of the merits or demerits of our team. Our defeats were far from being humiliations. They were rather hard-contested and well-earned victories for our opponents. Three of our defeats were by very low scores. Of the other two defeats, the scores may create a very poor impression of what proved to be two of the sharpest contests of the season — at Rutgers and at Lehigh. On the whole, our team ' s work should prove satisfactory to all. When the results of this season are carefully considered, we must conclude that we had a strong team. At the opening of the season we were confronted by a very heavy schedule. At least four of the teams Capt. Ritter Hubbard (Capt. in 1914) 119 19 1 7 CIARLA Brennan on our schedule were teams from larger institutions and, consequently, might be considered above our class — Lafayette, Lehigh, Rutgers and Bucknell. Three of the remaining five teams on the schedule, while more evenly matched with our team, never- theless, proved to be worthy of consideration — Villa Nova, Lebanon Valley and Catholic University. The remaining two teams, Susquehanna and Albright, were the only easy games on the schedule. Con- sequently, our schedule was a succession of clashes with teams that often proved to be heavier and stronger than our own. In fact, a glance at the schedule will show that three of our most important games followed one directly after another — Rutgers, Lehigh and Bucknell, a very strong combination to be so close together. But this was necessary in order that the schedule might be arranged. In the next place we must take into consideration the injuries which were the result of such a difficult schedule. These, altho comparatively few in number, came at very inopportune times. The most notable case of this kind occurred after the Rutgers game. Hoelenbaugh 120 1 9 1 T CIARLA Both centers, Hayes and Schwenk, received injuries which prevented them from taking part in a number of the succeeding games. A substitution had to be made at center just before the games with Lehigh and Bucknell. Stephens also was prevented from taking part in either one of these games. Nevertheless, in the face of these drawbacks, the team played remarkably good ball. Here lay the real strength of our team. It was able to adjust itself to cope with the difficulties attending a heavy schedule. When Schwenk and Hayes were out of the game, Hollenbaugh made a capable substitute. Weber could take Stephens’ place and Steele was a reliable substitute for both of them. Just before the Albright game, Coach McCaa had to reconstruct the team and with what results is best demonstrated by the game on Thanksgiving Day. On September i, 1915, most of the football men reported to begin the season’s work. The prospects were good. There was a large crowd of husky material, both old and new men. Coach McCaa, with the assistance of M. D. Fleming and Carl Erickson, assist- Landis i Gaston 121 191 T Cl ARL A Schwenk McGovern ant coaches, began at once to get the men into form. Rapid progress was made, and when the opening game approached a team was ready to fight for Muhlenberg. On September 25th the entire squad, accompanied by a large crowd of rooters, boarded a Lehigh Valley train for Easton. All were eager for the fray with Lafayette on March Field. From the very beginning it was evident that both teams were evenly matched. In fact, they showed development that was far in advance of this early part of the season. Our team worked smoothly and fast. Again and again good gains were made thru Lafayette’s line, which was apparently weak. Lafayette’s strong backfield, how- ever, made up for the weakness of her line. Never- theless, it was only after some heavy line plunging that Lake succeeded in plowing thru for Lafayette’s first touchdown. In the second quarter, Lake again came into evidence. This time, however, he gained an easy touchdown by intercepting a forward pass on an open field. For Muhlenberg, some of the new men did splendid work. In the third quarter Taylor and Stephens, behind Fleming’s interference, steadily carried the ball within striking distance of Lafayette’s 122 1 9 IT CIARLA goal. Stephens easily skirted the end for a touch- down. The game ended with the score, 14 to 7. Villa Nova was next. This was the first home game of the season. October 2d was anything but an ideal football day. It rained in the morning and a fine drizzle descended all afternoon. Villa Nova won thru her forward passes, which were well executed, netting her a total gain of 175 yards on six out of eight trials. McGurkin succeeded in making a field goal, and Regan scored a touchdown. Weber’s end runs brought „ 0 Brubaker Muhlenberg into striking distance. Caskey then carried the ball across. The score was 9 to 6. On October 9th “Red” Swope’s Susquehanna tribe journeyed to Allentown, confident of gaining a victory from the Cardinal and Gray. They were, however, doomed to meet with a disappointment. McCaa’s men displayed their football ability. The game was one-sided from beginning to end. Cassler’s fifteen yard run in the third quarter, after receiving a forward from Swope, was the only display of form on the part of the visitors. Muhlenberg crossed the line six times. The score was 42 to o. Devereux 123 191T CIARLA Stephens Weber Next, on October 16th the team gave Rutgers what was reported as one of the keenest games ever played in New Brunswick (N. J.). Rutgers succeeded in carrying the ball across three times for three well- earned touchdowns. Both Hayes and Schwenk re- ceived injuries during the early stage of the game. Talman and Nash starred for Rutgers. Score, 21 to o. The following Saturday, October 23d, the team, accompanied by almost the entire student body, went to South Bethlehem for the game with Lehigh. Altho in a crippled condition, Muhlenberg played a remark- ably defensive game. Within the first five minutes of play, they held Lehigh for downs on the 5-yard line. Landis, who made his initial appearance in a varsity game, greatly surprised the Muhlenberg rooters by the able manner in which he defended his position on the line. Hubbard, last year’s captain, played the best all-round game of his college career. Captain Ritter as usual proved to be a reliable man on the line. The team was very ably managed by little Weber, who made a number of sensational runs. It was an ex- ceptionally clean-cut game on both sides. The score was 20 to o in Lehigh’s favor. 124 191 T Cl ARL A One week later on October 30th we played Bucknell at Lewisburg. This turned out to be our first victory over Bucknell since we began football relations with that institution, about three years ago. With the team in a rather weakened condition due to the Rutgers and Lehigh games and practically a scrub backfield, this proved to be a rather remarkable showing. Gaston starred by kicking a goal from the 42-yard line against a strong wind. Bucknell rammed our line in vain. Charlie Steel, at quarter, played a wonderful game, considering that this was his first game of the season. The score was 3 to o. One of the most sensational games of the season was played on November 6th with Lebanon Valley. Leba- non Valley had the best team in her history. After holding Penn State to a 13-to-o score, the Anvillites were confident of GETTING Muhlenberg. The game was nip and tuck from start to finish with the score vacillating from side to side. It was not until the last two minutes of play that the game was won, when Steel Taylor 125 191T CIARLA Caskey (Capt. -elect for 1916) The Coaches M. Fleming scored a field goal. The only touchdown of the game was made by Stephens. Mackert starred for Lebanon Valley, scoring her nine points by three well-directed kicks from placement. Score was io to 9. On November 13th Catholic University, of Wash- ington, D. C., made its debut in Allentown football circles. Their team was made up of all tall and well- built players. Our team, nevertheless, put up a good fight. The ball zigzagged across the field thruout the entire game. Taylor featured in some excellent line plunging. It was not until the last quarter that a score was possible, when J. Butler put the winning goal across the bar for Catholic University. Score, 3 to o. Thanksgiving Day finally came around on November 25th — so did Albright. The last game of the season. The Benfer crew arrived in high spirits, buoyed up by a 20- to- 10 victory over the Cardinal and Gray in 1914. They left Allentown in the evening with a 33-to o humiliation for 1915. 126 191T CIARLA BASKETBALL TEAM William S. Ritter C. Luther Fry. . . . Mark A.

Everett 128 The Varsity 1 9 1 T CIARLA BASKETBALL SEASON 1915-1916 T HE college athletic authorities decided on a new policy for the 1915-1916 season in basketball for Muhlenberg. They agreed that the season of the year before had been too long and proved to be tiresome. There was not sufficient interest maintained for the home games. Accordingly the schedule was shortened and only eleven games were played. New York Law School, Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, Lafayette College and Susquehanna University were the teams dropped. The plan of shortening the schedule worked out very well and the students supported the team in fine style. There were five home games. Three of these games were played on the Allentown Preparatory School floor. This floor can be used next season both for practice and playing the games. Heretofore Muhlenberg did not have a floor where they could practice and also play the regularly scheduled games. In the early part of the season there was some lively practice to get the men in shape. The team was handicapped on account of several men being declared ineligible to play. Despite this loss a strong team was organized. The first five games were setbacks for the team. They were not able to strike their stride. These games were played away from home and usually on small floors which greatly handicapped the team. They were unable to accomplish anything. The first of these games was played with our old basketball rival — Penn. After a rather poor showing in the first half, the team pulled together and came back in the second half with more pep. Penn, however, was not to be overtaken and carried away the victory with a good margin, 38 to 13. It seemed as if the fellows were over-confident, having handed Penn a pretty defeat the year before. The second defeat came at the hands of the Gettysburg passers. The game was played hard and fast. The smallness of the floor allowed shooting from any angle. Mahaffie and Campbell starred for Gettysburg, having the ball taught to seek the iron hoops at all times on the Gettysburg floor. Captain Ritter starred for Muhlenberg, scoring four baskets and tossing fouls with great accuracy. The score was 51 to 34. The next night the team wound up the trip by playin g Lebanon Valley a close game. The first half ended 18 to 12 in Muhlenberg’s favor. The game was exciting thruout and the close score kept the interest at high pitch. Lebanon Valley finally put the game on ice by throwing two field goals and tossing two foul goals, while the score was 27 to 27, with but two minutes to play. The final score was 33 to 27. Gaston did excellent work for Muhlenberg, especially in foul shooting. Witmer and Fitzgerald changed positions 130 191T CIARLA in this game, making a better playing combination. Witmer secured three baskets. The following week the team traveled to the little town of South Bethlehem to engage with the Lehigh collegians. The game was the poorest exhibition given by the team. The Lehigh team at all times held the team down, besides scoring almost at will. The score was 38 to 16. The fifth defeat came from the Bucknell quintet. The Bucknell team played a fast game, especially the forwards. The varsity pulled together a bit, but still lacked the right amount of pep. The score was 23 to 14. Finally the team struck their stride. They broke the ice and handed a defeat to the Moravian College quintet. Of the home games, all resulted in victories for the Cardinal and Gray, except one. The victory over Moravian came after much hard work. It required an extra period to settle this game. The game was full of excitement from start to finish. Captain Ritter decided the game by tossing a foul goal with but thirty seconds to play. Gaston was easily the star of the game, both defensively and offensively. The team then kept up this winning streak and handed a defeat to the Albright bunch. The score was 34 to 22. The team showed an unusual amount of pep in the second half. The first half was close, but in the second half Albright was helpless. Afflerbach was back in the game and did much to strengthen the teamwork. Gaston baffled all attempts to stop his wonderful shooting and repeatedly thrilled the crowd by some remarkable shots. The only defeat on the home floor was registered by Bucknell. This was Muhlenberg’s second defeat at the hands of the speedy Bucknell passers. The score was 35 to 32. The Lewisburg boys by some excellent shots near the close of the game won a well-earned victory. Captain Ritter starred with seven field goals and kept Muhlenberg in the running. Gettysburg came next. The battlefield boys were very confident, but they missed lire. They tried hard to duplicate the victory they scored on their floor. A little of the old fight and pep soon turned their ambitions to naught. The game was nip and tuck, as is shown by the close score. The score was 34 to 32. Mahaffie and Campbell both played a great game for Gettysburg. Witmer was the star for Muhlenberg, caging four field goals. A feature of the game was the long clean shots made by Witmer. No time was more opportune than the close of a successful season to hand a defeat to Rutgers. It seemed like a hard job. It came easy. The bigger they come the harder they fall, and Rutgers fell all over herself. The Muhlenberg team, to a man, played a ster- ling game. The news came as a most pleasant surprise to the Muhlenberg followers and adds a great deal of credit to this year’s team. The final score was 38 to 34. The game was hard fought and the boys had the earmarks for some time, Fitzgerald especially. With the defeat of Rutgers, Muhlenberg closed in whirlwind style a successful season. Out of the eleven games played five were victories, while the remaining games were played to a very close score. Every member of the team played his best and contributed to the great team work. They are all deserving of praise. Coach McCaa for the second time turned out a good team and deserves a great deal of credit. 131 191 T Cl ARL A AN ODE TO THE FAIR-GROUND FENCE (Hats off! If you ever missed the last car in zero weather with a thirty-mile gale a-blowing.) The good old fence becomes endeared, From years of association. Its worth to us could not be priced. “Night hawk,” what is your opinion? It shades us from the summer heat, And helps in all kinds of weather. Its value never seems to cease, For it breaks the winds of winter. So may it stand for years and years. It will ne’er be underrated, Till street cars run long after twelve And the zero weather changes. Romances cling about this fence. Exciting! Well, just ask Billow. Come, rush its gates, save fifty cents, But wait ! Let us first see Billow. : ! : ! : Romances come, romances go, But the fence stands graduation. Mention it in your prayers, fellows, Time will help appreciation. — Ben. A. Hubbard, T6. 132 1 9 1 T CIARLA BASEBALL TEAM 1915 Ernest A. Weber Mark S. Young John W.

Corboy Scott Horlacher 134 1 9 1 T CIARLA BASEBALL SEASON 1915 I N OUR Freshman year the fourth intercollegiate sport was introduced, due to the urgent demands of the student body. We had abundant material for this sport; and the first year was a sweeping success. Since all but two of the last year’s varsity men were back, and there was plenty of promising material among the new candidates, we opened our season with prospects of waving our colors high and confident of taking many scalps. The Southern trip was realized. Five games were arranged for, the Spring training trip down South to Dixie covering the entire of Easter week. We played our first game in the South with West Virginia University. We got the jump on the home team in the first inning; but ragged fielding lost the game for us, 8 to 6. Our team was the only side with an earned run to its credit. The following day the sky cleared in time to permit a tussle with West Virginia Wesleyan. We opened up strongly in the eighth inning, making six runs; and the Wesleyans were downed, 6 to 2. For the first time in the history of the College we lined up against a big league team; and altho we were defeated, 6 to o, we had the satisfaction of giving the Baltimore Feds a good rub and were complimented for it. Fear caused St. Mary’s to cancel Friday’s game and we started for Gettysburg. A few small errors in the field lost the game, with a score of 6 to o. On April 17th our first home game resulted in the defeat of Lebanon Valley, by a score of 8 to 7. Up to the eighth inning everything looked rosy and promising to the visitors. Now, we treated the spectators to visions of an eighth-inning rally. Detling’s timely clout cleared the bases and won the game. On a raw and cold day, with the grounds in a poor condition, Lafayette swamped us, 17 to o. Despite a patched line-up, we showed improvement with Gettysburg, and again because of a few paltry errors we were blanked, 6 to o. Then, for kindness’ sake, we dropped a lopsided game to Lehigh, with a score of 12 to 2. In this game Caskey gave wonderful deliveries. Both the errors of com- mission and of omission were responsible for the victory of Albright to the melody of 15 to 3 ; while the West Virginian Wesleyans came and evened up the defeat in Virginia to the tune of 8 to 1. We had about enough reverses and would endure no more maltreating. When Seton Hall paid us a visit we opened battle and gave them a neck to neck race for thirteen innings and as a friendly reward presented the game to them, 9 to 5. On May 29th Seton Hall forgot all rights of the guest-friend and took another game from us on the terms of 5 to 4. Our next attempt at a seven-inning game resulted 4 to 2 in favor of Dickinson. This was no defeat for us, since we did not have recourse to the eighth-inning rally. 135 1 9 1 T C I A R L A Timely hitting and star pitching overwhelmed Albright, 6 to 2. The errors were costly to the locals, while we played an errorless game. The last game of the season with Bethlehem Steel Company was of big league caliber. It was a splendid exhibition of the national pastime. Caskey was in rare form. The game was errorless, and infall ible Web starred. In the way of scoring there was nothing doing until in the ninth inning. From our point of view it was a grand success, leaving us victors, 3 to 2, for the last contest of the season. Why do we not have baseball this season? The prospects for the season of 1916 were brighter than any previous year. It cannot be for lack of material. It is true that we lost several varsity men last season; but, in quality, the promising material that came last fall far exceeds the loss. We have real big league caliber in our Freshman Class, to say nothing of the rare latent possibilities in our three upper classes. We have enough men to make two winning teams. Why not use them? The sentiment of the student body favors baseball and we earnestly hope that next season we may again have the American national pastime among our college sports. I 191T CIARLA TRACK TEAM Reuben E.

Muhlenberg was again represented at the annual Relays which were held on April 24, 1915. Steel began the race with a very unfavorable start. He lost a yard at the very beginning because of a false start. On account of this he had no chance to gain the pole. In his efforts to regain this lost advantage, he spent all his strength so that he was almost fagged out at the finish of the first lap. Miller and Laury ran the next two laps. Both of them were unable to do more than hold their own. Weber took up the race for the final lap, but it was too late for this fleet runner to overtake any of the leaders. He finished where Steel began — in fifth place. Weber 139 Steel 191T CIARLA THE TRACK SEASON I 9 I 5 M UHLENBERG after a lay off in track athletics resumed relations with other colleges in this sport in 1915. The season was fairly successful. The fellows did not take a great amount of interest in track and accordingly there were few candidates. Coach McCaa worked with the material at hand and turned out a steady team. The first meet was scheduled with Haverford at Haverford. Muhlenberg lost the field meet by a score of 72 to 32. We were able to take but one first place. To our credit we pulled down nine second places. The fellows did their best, but were at a handicap from the start. Weber was not with the team, but remained at home to play with the varsity ball team. His services would have helped the team wonderfully. The Dickinson meet followed. This was one of the most interesting track meets held on Muhlenberg Field. Muhlenberg and Dickinson battled to a tie. Muhlenberg by winning first and second in the discus throw, the last event on the program, tied their opponents, the score being 63 to 63. Despite the heavy rain, four Muhlenberg records were broken. Weber equaled the record in the century and shattered the mark in the fur- long by running it in 23 1-5 seconds. Captain Miller broke the record for the low hurdles, running them in the fast time of 27 seconds. Gaston established a new record when he threw the discus 1 15 feet 55 inches. Reisner made a new distance in the hammer throw. A Dickinson runner, Yates, broke the record in the quarter mile, running the distance in 52 3-5 seconds. The meet was featured with many exciting moments and proved the best of the season for Muhlenberg. The meet with Juniata was in reality a comedy of errors. The outlay of the track was the reverse of an ordinary track. The idea broke up the system of Muhlenberg. The track was also very muddy and time was slow. Juniata won by a score of 66 to 59. The meet with Gettysburg wound up the track season of 1915. Gettysburg won the meet by a score of 64 to 48. It was an exciting meet thruout. Weber featured when he broke the tape in the century ahead of the Gettysburg star, Bostock. Steele ran a record-breaking quarter mile and hung up a new record. Laury won a wonderful race in the half mile. The meet thruout was replete with exciting features. 140 The Varsity 1 9 1 T CIARLA COLLEGE TRACK AND FIELD RECORDS 100-yard dash BixeER, ’13 10 1-5 s.

Last year a most pleasant and fascinating exhibition had been given, and everybody expected that this delightful occasion would surely be repeated for the pleasure of the above-mentioned parties. The day came for which the great fight was staged. The pole with its eight ropes on each side was put into the middle of the field in the morning. That afternoon when the time for the combat came, the entire Sophomore Class came on the field in a mighty throng. Five timid and bewildered Freshmen appeared. Of course, everybody saw that this would not be a battle royal, so President Hepner, of the student body, ap- peared and investigated the phenomenon for the Freshmen. After some Sherlock Holmes stunts he found that all the other Freshmen had been misled into one or two of the Sopho- mo res’ rooms and had there been temporarily imprisoned. The mediator now warned these smart Sophs who had performed this supposedly clever trick to release the poor and innocent Freshies, or else their class would forfeit the contest. These patriotic Sopho- mores evidently thinking that they would rather forfeit the contest than be beaten by such a bunch of newcomers, refused to release them. President Hepner, realizing his duty to justice and to humanity, awarded the fight to the beleaguered Freshmen. THE BANNER RUSH On September 25th, Saturday morning, occurred the great and exhilarating banner rush in the college grove. This was the exhibition “grandiloquent” for all those wishing to see a good circus in which no fakes occur. Here the Freshies showed a remarkable insight into college strategemby the wonderfully clever methods that they pursued to win 144 191T CIARLA this contest. At this time the first- year men evidently were much more ardent in their class spirit than they were later in the year, for they surely had made victory sure for themselves. The banner was fastened so securely that it had to be taken from the tree after the fight with mallet and chisel. However, the v Sophs, wise in their conceit, thought that their faith was sufficient to remove the banner — if they only showed that they had some faith. Well, this illusion of the Sophs lead to the greatest banner fight that was ever seen on the college campus. At 9.30 President Hepner blew the whistle for the fight to begin. Such a reign of missiles modern warfare had never before seen. Not only was chlorine gas and liquid fire in open evidence, but bags of flour, rotten tomatoes, “fragrant” eggs, lampblack and many other deadly weapons were used in the terrific fray. Grappling hooks were even brought forward against the little rawhide pennant that the Freshies had greased so well. But in spite of all these unearthly terrors, that pennant stuck — how those Freshmen could fight — the Sophs could not even down them with their bare fists. All thru the first and second halves the Sophomores never despaired, but sent one phalanx after the other against the unwieldy foe. Above it all, the banner waved a proud defiance. Finally the whistle blew. For the Freshmen it was the whistle of victory. They had won their first college fight. They were a happy bunch, but, my, they looked a sorry sight. Somebody even reported that three weeks later two of the Freshmen were found by an upper classman washing tomato seeds and lampblack out of their hair. THE FOOTBALL GAME On a clear brisk October afternoon, the 4th of that month, the Sophs cruelly defeated the Freshmen in the ann ual football game between these two classes. Everybody agrees that the erudite Sophomores should not have won this game, but that the utter desperation and greedy thirst for revenge which pervaded the hearts and minds of all second-year men at that time, were responsible for this seeming glorious victory over a very inexperienced, if not helpless, foe. However, we do not desire in any way to detract from the consolation which this gory victory brought Captain Melick’s hosts, for they won the day by the score of 14 to 6. The Freshmen had just a few days before won both the pole fight and the banner rush, so the pride of these next year Juniors was somewhat railed, and by desperate efforts they succeeded in winning this game from the Freshies. For quite a number of weeks both classes had trained themselves for this fray. Captain Melick subjected his men to many forced marches, for he knew that the Freshies were just as innocent as every freshman class is, so he knew that they could be surprised. The Freshmen had, however, incidentally gotten some practice and some coaching from some brotherly warrior of the upper classmen. The game started with the Sophs kicking off to the Freshmen. The Fresh- men carried the ball to their three-yard line, when the fingers of one of them slipped and the Sophs were permitted to carry the ball out of dangerous territory. Melick now began to be serious and by brilliant line plunges carried the ball over the line for a touchdown. Half- back Zinzer now began to envy his captain, Melick, so he too decided to make a touch- down, which he gracefully accomplished. In the second half the Freshmen now knew 145 191 T CIARLA how football was played, so they too became anxious to gain some fame. Captain Metz and plucky Heuer had by close observation learned the trick from the Sophs, and by a good example of imitation succeeded in making a touchdown. The game ended with the Sophs in the lead with the score 14 to 6. BASKETBALL SERIES On Thursday night, December 9th, the Sophs again got sore and declared war upon the Freshies, whom they had beaten some time before so mercilessly on the football field. This war was now to be fought in the basketball game. In this war it was decided before- hand ; in fact, it was a condition of the declaration of war, that five battles should be fought to decide the victor in the series. However, only three of these games were necessary, for at the end of these games the wearers of the green were so badly scared that they begged the Sophs to let them go at that; the Sophs not being anxious to waste any more physical stimuli, agreed to the proposition and marched off as the victors. On the above date the first game was played. From the beginning of the game the Sophomores were in the lead — not that the Freshies were too stupid for the Sophomores, but the Sophs were too clever for the Freshies. Therefore, the Sophomores proudly raised the banner of victory. The second game was played the following evening. Here again the Freshmen proved that they were willing to learn and that they were great imitators, for they knew the game almost as well as their learned superiors, and the Sophs scarcely got away with their scalps — altho they retained fourteen parts of theirs to their opponents’ twelve. In both these games Metz was the bravest of the brave for the Freshmen, while Strause and Wuehter lead the charges for the Sophs. The writer lost all records of the third game, but he does know that the result of the game was also in favor of the Sophomores, other-wise the game would have received more notoriety. 146 1 9 1 T CIARLA SOPHOMORE FOOTBALL TEAM William Melick Captain Amos StrausE Manager THE LINE-UP Right End DeLong Left Tackle. . .

The musical numbers are high grade, full of vigor, new and unsual. The members of the Quartette possess well-trained voices and are excellent actors.” — Sellersville Herald. “A number of solos were rendered during the evening. A piano solo, “Hungarian Rhapsody,” by Dalton F. Schwartz, being worthy of special mention. A delightful violin solo was also given by Russell J. Baker, which brought forth much applause.” — Scranton Republican. “The program was varied in its character, the rendition of which was highly classic in its type. Mr. Mader delightfully entertained with several bass solos, which displayed a wonderful voice of which he has perfect control.” — Wilkes-Barre Record. “ Friday night ' s concert is regarded as one of the best ever given in Lancaster by the Glee Club. The second part of the program was a playlet, entitled “The Love Bug,” which was pronounced as the feature of the evening. William G. Wahl kept the audience in a continuous uproar by his jokes and antics.” — Lancaster Intelligencer. “The popular organization has been heard here in past years, but never to better advantage than on this occasion which was marked by the presence of a large and cultured audience which attested its appreciation of the high character of the music in no unmistaken manner.” — Lebanon Daily News. “This year the club will sing in twenty-two different cities and towns. They could get twice the number of engagements, for wherever they appear they are always desired again.” — Allentown Morning Call. The following excerpt, also from the Scranton Republican, forms a fitting conclusion to this brief survey of the Glee Club successes: “Under the directorship of Harold K. Marks, assisted by Carl A. Erickson, ' 16, the Glee Club has reached a degree of excellency that it surpasses any up to this time.” 153 191T CIARLA The Skit PROGRAM Part I 1.

Wahl 160 1 9 1 T CIARLA The Cast 1915 PRODUCTIONS I N the Lyric Theatre on Tuesday evening, June 15, 1915, the Cue and Quill Club gave a most finished production of four splendid one-aet playlets. Too much credit cannot be given to John A. McCollom, Jr., who not only directed and trained the cast, but was author of the four playlets presented, having in connection with one of them the collabora- tion of Prof. J. H. S. Bossard. The “curtain raiser” was named “Pickles,” the scene being laid in the office of O’Brien Co.’s pickle factory. The plot centers about the character of Daniel O’Brien, a well-to-do manufacturer, rough and uncouth, who tries to win the affections of a young lady thru deception. With the aid of his secretary he attempts to create the impression that he is a man of the highest intelligence, but fails when his secretary proves to be the man whom she had previously thrown over because of his poverty. With Day as the manufacturer, Fry as the secretary, and Rosenberger as the girl, all the parts were in capable hands. It told an interesting story and was well presented. The collaboration work of Messrs. Bossard and McCollom, called “Two Scraps of Paper,” was very amusing and told the story of a young couple, both of whom had escapades of a shady nature, news of which they tried to keep from each other; it, however, finally becom- ing known thru the newspapers. The play called for strong acting and was cleverly characterized by Schlechter as the husband, “Frank Darlington,” and Hartzell as “Susie,” his wife. Worsinger was the grocer boy. 161 191T CIARLA Corboy appeared as “ Dr. Henry Wayburn” and Stump as “ Patience” in the emotional play, “After Hours.” It told the sad story of a neglected wife and her child struggling for a living, while her husband lived in ease and luxury. This required able talent and both of them deserve mention for their clever interpretation of the parts assigned them. To crown it all, the merry story of “The Other Mrs. Briggs” was presented as the grand finale of the evening. In this Corboy was the landlady, with Schout as the daughter, “Katie”; while Reisner played the part of the star boarder who marries Katie and then, because of certain evidences, has a hard time proving to his mother-in-law that he is not a bigamist. The impersonations were well portrayed, and every member did himself great credit in aiding to make this play one of the gems of the season. “PICKLES” CAST D. Franklyn Day Russell Rosenberger C.

FiedlER Treasurer The Christian Association has, by no means, been inactive in the past year. Its power, influence and usefulness has been of a steady and continual growth. The Association has been permanently organized and has a cabinet of officers which meets frequently to consider the welfare of the young, but sturdy, child of Muhlenberg. A constitution has been adopted and signed by nearly fifty members. Definite membership has been established by the payment of dues which, in turn, has helped to finance the special meetings. The Association has taken a step forward in meeting every week, thruout the college year, instead of the former custom of meeting a few weeks during the Lenten season. During the first semester we had open discussions on practical student problems, using “ Student Standards of Action ' ' as our guide. Special meetings were addressed by Rev. George Drach, of Trappe, Pa., and Rev. Clarence E. Krumbholz, of New York City. The meetings of the second semester were devoted to prayer and the study of missions. “South American Problems” was the basis of our consideration. Special meetings were addressed by members of the faculty. Our work is not all for our own edification and development, but we are supplying the Sunday schools, Luther leagues and churches of the community with efficient service. About forty of our men are regularly doing Christian work in the community. Altho we have not as yet established a settlement house in the city, nevertheless that is our aim and we are nearer that goal than ever. The proposition has been investigated and only remains to be one of our next steps. We showed ourselves useful in a material way by helping to husk corn on the Good Shepherd Home farm. We are continuing to instruct the children of that institution in manual training. While we have not as yet reached our ideal, we have made great progress. We have set our ideals high and our aim is to develop gradually and kindle a flame of spiritual love, which, by earnest and sincere endeavors, may be fanned into a conflagration of service and influence for the realization of our ideals. 173 191T CIARLA EUTERPEA LITERARY SOCIETY In April, 1915, a number of students interested in furthering literary work at Muhlenberg, met and formed a new society, because of the lack of interest shown in the class literary societies. The organizers had been members of the old Euterpea Society, and for the sake of traditions they adopted this name. Regular biweekly meetings are being held thruout the college year. These meetings are held on Monday evenings, because no provision was made for them in the regular schedule. Oratory, im- promptu speaking, parliamentary practice and essay work are stressed, with special emphasis on debating. This attention to debating has led to an inter-soeiety debate, which was held on April 7, 1910, on the question of national prohibition by constitutional amendment. The Euterpea win- ning team was composed of Captain Raymond Leemhuis, Joseph Kleckner, Harvey Snyder and Clarence Swavely, alternate. It is hoped that the interest created by this debate will lead to the participation in intercollegiate debating by Muhlenberg next year. First Term Leland Brunner. Homer Weaver. . Harry Billow. . .

The old organizations, so popular in their day, had fallen into disrepute. An attempt was then made to make the literary work of the college distinctly a class affair. With this idea in mind, the Sophomore-Freshman, Junior-Senior societies were formed. This experiment also proved to be a failure. But out of these failures, we feel sure, has sprung a permanent literary body which has come to stay. When the society was to be named it was decided that no better name could be selected than Sophronia. This is not a continuation of the old society of that name. In fact, we cannot even claim to be a child of that body. The interest shown by the men has been very encouraging and a bright future is in store for Sophronia. The inter-society debates are the most notable results of our literary bodies. Our society now has a membership of twenty-three good, active men — men who are active in other college activities also. Meetings are held biweekly. Business meetings are private, but the literary meetings are public. Attention is paid to the best authors, essay work, debating and impromptu speaking.

Through the activity of several members of the class of 1917, when they were Freshmen, the Verein was re-established. The members at the first meeting numbered six. Since then, through its active and interesting meetings, the organiza- tion has grown and prospered so that at the present time it numbers twenty-five. The club is proud of the fact that they have an average of ninety per cent, of its members present at every meeting. Our Verein claims to be the most energetic and successful club at the college. The club meets weekly and has a regular program after which each member is called on to give an impromptu speech of at least one minute. All of the conversation takes place in German, so that the readers can readily see why we claim to be a club that produces results. We are much indebted to Dr. William Wacker- nagel and Prof. Robert R. Fritch, of the German department, who have taken such an active part in the welfare of the Verein. OFFICERS Henry C.

The weary student from classic drudg’ry rose With drowsy senses welcoming repose. His fav’rite pipe with flavored tobacco filled, His aching head with fragrant fumes soon stilled. Of maiden fair, whose image his heart enshrined, The pictured likeness ’gainst the wall reclined. His sleepy eyes to her lovely face he turned, And for her sweet angelic presence yearned. The slow ascending fumes that rose in a curl, Obscured his vision and set his head awhirl. For there, within the haze doth he discern, In lifelike form, for whom his soul doth yearn. With upward bound from sweet repose he springs To clasp — illusion borne by swiftest wings. — Edwin R. Haag, ’17 198 19 IT CIARLA Oh, Look!

The editors have had no other desire than to say in English what Luther said in German and in Latin. They have suppressed nothing, but have allowed Luther to speak his own mind in a new language. Most of the works are here put into English for the first time. Of the fifteen writings contained in the first two volumes, ten have never been translated into English before. The translators are men of known scholarly ability. They are eminently qualified for the work they have undertaken to do, and it is being done with the utmost care. Each writing has its own separate introduction, and allusions which the modern reader finds difficult are explained in foot-notes. Committee of Translators Prof. CHARLES M. JACOBS, D.
