THE CIARLA A COLLEGE ANNUAL Published by the JUNIOR CLASS of MUHLENBERG COLLEGE ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA MAY, 1917 To Reuben Jacob Butz, Esquire, Prominent lawyer and banker of Allentown; Sincere friend and loyal supporter of his Alma Mater As student, as alumnus. As President of the Board of Trustees; In appreciation of his earnest efforts for Muhlenberg, We Respectfuli.y Dedicate This CIARLA. Reuben Jacob Butz Reuben Jacob Butz was born on January 13, 1867, at Butzdale, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. He attended the public schools of Allentown and was graduated from the Allentown High School in 1883. In the fall of that year he entered Muhlenberg College and took first honors in the class of 1887, receiving his A. B. degree. Three years later he was granted the degree of A. M. After his graduation from Muhlenberg he studied law with the late R. E. Wright and was admitted to the bar on January 20, 1889. His rise was rapid and he is among the leaders in his profession, being a member of the prominent law firm of Butz and Rupp. That he has held the position of solicitor for the Allentown School District since 1894 is an evidence of the esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens. His activities have not been confined entirely to law. Since May 5, 1913, Mr. Butz has been president of the Allentown National Bank, and president of the Board of Trustees of Muhlenberg College since 1912. In January of the present year he was elected president of the Allentown Chamber of Commerce. In all his activities Mr. Butz has shown an earnestness and reliability which have won for him the admiration and confidence of all who know him, and his services for Muhlenberg are especially worthy of recognition. We are proud to number Mr. Butz among the alumni of our college.

God help me!’’ 29 The Quadri-Centennial of the Reformation John A. W . Haas g $30UR hundred years have passed since the second great movement in modern history began. The great historical change which was brought about thru the Reformation was no violent reaction that broke the continuity of history. It was a necessary return to the original sources of Christianity. Its necessity arose from the fact that the development of the Church had become a degeneration. It became possible because Christianity had within its life the power to react against the degeneration which existed. The Church of the Middle Ages had injured the center of evangelical truth and obscured the vital force of religion. The Christian life was hindered thru hierarchical oppression. The free right of the people was hampered by the papal form of government. The mind was enslaved thru scholasticism, which sought to subject the movements of the mind to the established dogma. The possi- bility of a reform could not come from the Church in its organized form, because it was not willing to recognize its errors. It is true that some abuses had been done away with, and some moral changes were contemplated, but there was no willingness to return to the vital center of Christianity in a free personal Christ. The Reformation arose as a religious change in the soul of Luther. He sought assurance of salvation. The general guarantees of the Church did not satisfy his earnest spirit. It was only when he found that the sinner was justified freely thru the grace of God in the atonement of Jesus Christ, that he approached the foundation of the certainty of salvation. Man’s part was only to apprehend the great historic occurrence. In Christ received by faith, was the source and power of the assurance of man’s salvation. The direct starting point of the Reformation was the clear con- ception of repentance. Luther emphasized that the whole life of the Christian should be one of repentance. This repentance was not the ordinary medieval penance in which confession and satisfaction 30 are performed under the ministry of priests. There could be justly no remission of the penalties of sin thru any action of the Church or thru any sale of indulgences. The real inward repentance was neces- sary for the entrance into the Kingdom. Luther asserted: “The pope has neither the will nor the power to remit any penalties except those which he has imposed by his own authority, or by that of the canons.’’ The Reformation, therefore, demanded a real inward change of heart. Luther as the priest who heard men in their con- fessions would not accept anything but the evidences of a real c hange of heart. In this action he returned to the New Testament idea of repentance. The Reformation put faith into the center of Christian life. While it did not deny that a good tree brings forth good fruit, it was not the fruit that made the tree, but the tree that made the fruit. Mere activity of man was no guarantee of his right attitude toward God. Many things could be done which produced outwardly good results, but they would not be good unless a man was in the relation of trust toward God thru Jesus Christ. The faith which the Reformation emphasized is not an intellectual acceptance of doctrine; it is not an idle dream or an empty belief, but a living confidence in Jesus Christ as Savior. The moral value of the Reformation was its assurance that a man who believes is inwardly free. Thru faith man is lord of all things. He is a priest and a king. This gave to men the certainty, that if the conscience was purged from the sense of guilt, it was essentially free and unhampered. Consequently a new moral liberty arose, a liberty which is not to be construed as unhampered individual right. The liberty was the liberty of love, under the law of love. The intellectual importance of the Reformation was its emphasis of the right of private judgment, but this private judgment was not a mere individual matter without control. Men must seek their judgment from the living source of religious truth. This source is the revealed Word of God, as it is in the Bible. The Bible is not a law, but the power of God for life. The private judgment of the 31 Reformat! 3:i is, therefore, only the right of the individual to find his rehgious truth freely in the Bible, which was supposed to be its own interpreter. The Reformation never stood for a complete emancipation of the intellect in religious matters from the authority of the truth of the Gospel. But this authority must be self-evidencing to the souls of men, and not imposed by ecclesiastical law. The theology of the Reformation went back to the mighty messages of St. Paul. In stressing these, however, the Reformation did not neglect the rest of the New Testament truths in all their variety and fullness. Because the theology of the Reformation was that of Paul, it accepted his ideal of the Church as the communion of saints, unified in the one Lord Jesus Christ.

Horn HE second, twenty-five years of the history of Muhlenberg College mark a period of development and expansion. When the old quarters became untenable, the college had to have a new and larger home. If its work was to be worth while, it had to have more adequate equipment and greater facilities. Broad plans for the future had to be made by those who were in charge, even tho the financial bugaboo was ever present. The plans for the new college were made and carried out on faith, and to some the task appeared as impossible as the moving of mountains. Under the guidance of President Seip the plans were made for the new college; he did not live to see the fruit of his labors, but it must have been a great satisfaction to him to see the work well begun. To him belongs in large measure the inception of the plan; he had the broad outlook and was using all his efforts to bring on the new age. In January of 1905 the college was moved to the new site, on the western edge of the city. The Administration Building proved to be a good place for work, while a part of the present Dormitories provided accommodations for the students. Soon the Power House was completed, and then the President s residence. Today we have many more dormitory sections, filled by a largely increased student body; an enlarged Power House, containing also the Chemical Laboratory; a far better equipped Main Building; a substantial Refectory; a new Preparatory School; and we shall soon see the completion of the Treasurer’s Residence. In 1904 there came a new president, Rev. John A. W. Haas, D.D., whose energy, aggressiveness, breadth of scholarship, and high ideals have brought the college into prominence in the scholastic world. Muhlenberg now holds an enviable place among the small colleges of the country. Higher standards for admittance now prevail; more and better work is demanded in all courses. Library and laboratory facilities have been improved as the Board of Trustees could meet demands. The college, tho not perfectly equipped, is at least well able to do thoro, first-rate college work, which compares favorably with the work of any institution of college grade in the country. May Providence grant that we never grow very large, but achieve great success in our proper sphere of a first-class small college. President Haas is ably supported by his faculty, both the 34 other men and the younger and newer teachers. All the members of the present faculty, except Profs. Haas, Wackernagel, Ettinger, Bauman, Reese, and Horn have been added since 1907. Courses and departments have also seen a great deal of change. In 1892 Dr. Wackernagel had charge of History as well as German; History and Economics was made a separate department in 1905. French, Spanish, and Italian are now included among the Modern Languages. Admirable courses in Aesthetics and Philosophy are provided. An elective system with some restrictions has been successfully tried in the upper classes. Formerly there was only the classical course, leading to the degree of A.B. The first B.S. degrees were conferred in 1899, since which time this scientific course has become deservedly popular. Still another course has been arranged, intended for those who can qualify for neither the classical nor the scientific courses, and yet are prepared to take advantage of a college education. The degree of Ph.B., to which this course leads, was first conferred in 1911. The institution now conducts Saturday and summer courses, mainly for the benefit of teachers, some of whom have accumulated enough credits to earn a college degree. This is only a part of the broader program of Muhlenberg College to serve the community and to influence it at every possible point of contact. The number of graduates who are entering the ministry is now proportionately smaller, and more are becoming teachers and business men. Many students have taken a special course for a few years to prepare them for entrance to medical schools. The graduates of the college are now found in more spheres of activity than ever before. Student activities within the college are very numerous; indeed there are too many for so small a student body. Inter- collegiate athletic contests, once forbidden by Trustees and Faculty, are now a matter of course. It has been the constant effort of those in authority to keep athletics clean. The endowment fund in 1892 amounted to a little over $130,000; it is now over $300,000. The old college site was worth $40,000; today our property is worth more than $800,000. The old site consisted of a paltry two or three acres; the new campus, seventy- two. The shabby, ugly building of the past is replaced by a modern college plant, attractive and beautiful. This means that there were many generous friends of the college. Quite recently the citizens of Allentown showed their interest in the institution and their confidence in its future by subscribing nearly $80,000 to the Five Hundred Thousand Dollar Fund for the College and Seminary. 85 Thus is shown the changed spirit of the city. Allentown used to look upon us with indifference, not to say contempt; today with pride, as an institution embodying the spirit of this wonderfully progressive city. The alumni, too, are showing more generosity, loyalty, and love. It is only thru a loyal, helpful body of alumni that the college can attain her highest ideals of usefulness. With Trustees and Faculty, Alumni and Students, and the whole Lutheran Ministerium of Pennsylvania, whose college this is, united for the welfare of our Ama Mater, there is no limit to the possibilities of Muhenberg College. 36 f n 37 Senior History I HE, time is close at hand when in reality we shall leave our I Alma Mater. Here we have toiled and here also we have 1 enjoyed many a happy hour. But all is now past, we have finished our course, and the world stands before us. Four years ago when we were first banded together as a class we had but few thoughts of graduation. The days before us to be spent within the walls of Muhlenberg seemed almost without number. With our Alma Mater kept foremost in mind and with true class spirit, we met and took part in our numerous college activities. We have acted as one and in that has been our success. The relation between the faculty and the members of the class has always been remarkably amicable, thus creating friendships and ties that make separation unwelcome. The class of 1917 takes pride in recalling the number of successful representatives that it has had on the various athletic teams and organizations. We all feel that we have done what we could; that our four years here have availed much. Especially do we feel that we have derived much benefit from our connection with Muhlenberg and that we are far better fitted than before to cope with the problems that we shall meet with in the future. And now as a body we bid our college farewell with the best wishes for those connected with her who have done so much toward the development of us all.

The chronicle of the triumphs of our first two years has already been written. The class that knocked at the gates of Muhlenberg College in the fall of 1914 was the largest ever ad- mitted. The new men quickly showed that they intended to be big not only in numbers, but in deeds. The history of our Freshman year is a series of signal successes — a happy augury of a golden future. Sophomore year swelled the list of our achievements. The efficiency of 1918 as campus cops compelled the admiration even of the unappreciative Frosh, who were gently but firmly guided in the paths of probity and peace. Athletic heroes and social lions vied with leaders in the arts and sciences in winning new honors for class and college. Lower class contests added uniformly to our store of trophies; our calendars and football programs were artistic innovations; and the Sophomore edition of The Muhlenberg Weekly was a literary gem. Our banquet at The Allen proved the ne plus ultra of prandial perfection, and the confusion and despair of the 50 unenlightened and unconscious Frosh. And the night of the 1919 banquet! Let us mercifully drop the tardy curtain of our silence. Shall we tell the world — or does it know already — that two-thirds of the disputants in the inter-society debate in our second year were of our number — 1918? As Juniors we might still believe with all our heart in the mighty magic of “1918’’ as a foremost factor in the contemporary life of 51 our beloved college. We give to her, this year of grace, her standard bearer in the inter-collegiate oratorical contest at Gettysburg. We give to her, in every department of her activity, men whom, honoring her, she need not blush to honor. We give to her and to her children, in and out of college, as our third year nears its close, this book — our crowning achievement — The 1918 Ciarla. May it reflect the care and labor it has entailed ; may it breathe the joy it would awaken ; may it be worthy of the class it represents; may it honor the institu- tion under whose banner it goes forth Three years ago we entered college, a lusty band of eighty-five. Today we number thirty-nine. Among the missing there are many who participated in earlier triumphs — many whom we fain would welcome home again. May they fare well. And while we fondly cherish memories of other days, and tell of arms that wrought and men that were, we trust that we may have acquired the wider vision and the nobler spirit that must come to all true sons of Muhlenberg — the spirit of confidence in a future, of loyalty to a principle, of devotion to an ideal — a spirit that, touching human interests every- where, turns ever back the current of its love fondly, faithfully to Muhlenberg. 52 53 Junior Class Officers First Term President Allen S.

If it were not for the cloud of evil-smelling tobacco smoke whi ch continually envelopes him he would hardly be noticed at all, but that aged pipe of his and those “ two-for-fives” are never failing harbingers of the approach of our Lilliputian friend. Acker and his smoke are inseparable. Perhaps it is the power of the ruthless giant in his pipe which has cir- cumscribed “Shrimp” Acker to his smallness of stature. However, we agree with him that “It is better to smoke here than hereafter.” It is said that Acker once had an ambition to become an exhibition dancer. O Paul! How misplaced was that ambition ! A college student, with an ambition to become a dancer on the vaudeville stage! How have the mighty fallen! Publish it not from the housetops; tell it not in Gath. Aside from the “small” part he has taken in class athletics there are two athletic activities in which Acker has specialized — dancing and bowling. With regard to these let us only suggest the incongruity of little Paul Acker swung around the floor by some tall Rosalind, or balancing in his tiny hand the big wooden spheres and rolling them at the ten-pins. 55 iMElM Harvey M.

When we were Freshmen he would have had us believe that Silverdale was a metropolis between Allentown and Philadelphia, in which his father’s greenhouses held a place similar in importance to the exaggerated blacksmith shop in Detroit which turns out such frequent editions of the little honk-wagon. Altho impetuous and im- pulsive, “Allie” is one of our honor men in dancing and fussing. He can talk for hours on the wonders dancing has wrought in his life and will try to con- vince those otherwise inclined of the advantages of the art. No less fascinating are his wonderful tales about his life in society. These activities, together with his studies, have their effect upon Harvey, for his hair is becoming thinner and unless there is a change he will undoubtedly be one of our first baldheads. But a change would be nothing new for Allabough. He is very accommodating with his changes and will readily acquiesce in the opinions of his opponents in an argument, which shows that our sparsely thatched friend thinks, and rightly so, that only a woman and a fool will not change their minds. Allabough is also a poet. Scarcely a letter comes from his pen but contains a few lines of poetry. 56 Russell J. Baker East Bangor, Pa. Bake Russ Bom at East Bangor, June 20, 1893.

" An artistic face, fine, wavy, black hair, a soul full of music, a corpulent shape, beaming with prosperity in every dimension — what more could we seek in any fond Lothario who goes to woo his gentle maid every week-end? Russell Baker joined us in our Sophomore year, and in a sh ort time his violin had made him famous. His work with the Glee Club won approbation everywhere, but he reached the pinnacle of his fame on the occasion of the Stroudsburg concert, where he played as he had never played before. Outside of his violin work Russell was more or less of a missing quantity at college. He had a peculiar way of cutting classes and getting away with it. “Bake” seems to be spending more of his time at college this year, but he is never here between Friday afternoon and the wee hours of Monday morning. His musical work at Bangor takes him home for every week-end. But we have our suspicions that there is an added motive in his weekly excursions homeward. “Added motive” shall we say? O no, let us rather say it is the motive to which all others are sub- ordinate. 57 John M. Bellan Stockdale, Pa. Sarah Born in Hungary, May 20, 1892. Prepared at Allentown Preparatory School.

Ministry. “ What the orators want in depth they give you in length.” There were two big features in Bellan’s Fresh- man year which made him famous. Firstly, John bought an organ. Many a night has been made hideous by the thunderous peals of harmony (if such it may be called) emanating from his room in East Berks. Secondly, John bought a pair of dumb-bells. That would mean nothing in itself, but his use of those dumb-bells on the night of the attack upon the Dorms by the boiler-makers from the Sixth Ward is noteworthy. John was in the van-guard of the defenders and swung a dumb- bell in each hand with such vigor that he literally cut a swath in the ranks of the rough-necks. Bellan works hard at his studies; he also works hard to be humorous despite frequent warnings that it is all in vain. John also makes frantic attempts at oratory and if hard work, laborious care, diligent use of words, can bring success, John will be an orator. It was the same capacity for hard work that won for him a place on the track team in his Sophomore year. On Sundays Mr. Bellan is a Slovak preacher and is so popular with his flock that he is often called upon during the week to officiate at funerals, marriages, and what not. 58 William F.

" Be silent and safe — silence never betrays you. " Bennett is one of those shy, unobtrusive individ- uals. His meek and quiet demeanor, together with the fact that he lives out of town and is seldom seen on the campus, make him almost unknown outside of the class-room. He manages to make himself conspicuous, however, by coming in late for the first class every morning thru the irregularity of the Reading local which stops to pick up the rustics at every cross-roads. There is one incident in Bennett’s college life which stands out prom- inently and which was the occasion of winning for him not a little notoriety in college circles. This was the attempted kidnapping by the Sophomores. The bold leader of the hazing party stalked into the train at the terminal and laid a commanding hand upon the shoulder of the fugitive. But the kind fates intervened, and an influential citizen of Mertztown explained to the apparent satisfaction of the blustering Sophomore that William was a model young man. His classmates have recently found cause for favorable comment in a mutual attachment which has been observed between Bennett and Greaves. 59 Lloyd M. Berkenstock 1 18 N. 5th St., Emaus, Pa.

Teach- ing. “Keep thy counsel.” “Berkie” is another o, our quiet fellows. He never speaks unless he is called upon, but then he usually says something. This leads us to believe that far more goes on in his head than is evident to the casual observer; consequently, when we see him surreptitiously reading a letter in the class- room, we have the right to suspect that while " Berkie” has a head of his own, his heart belongs to another. But in spite of his customary level- headedness Berkenstock took onec very injudicious step in his college life. He confidentially informed some of his scientific friends that he had access to a Studebaker. Ever since that indiscretion “Berkie” has been pestered by those gentlemen for a joy-ride, and judging by the inexhaustible capacity for teasing displayed by the scientific Juniors, it seems as if “Berkie” must finally yield to their importunities. We only hope that some fair lady of Emaus will not feel slighted on that occasion. 60 Paul Sidney Christ 305 W. Main St., Kutztown, Pa. Stella Born at Kutztown, Pa., December 2, 1894.

He speaks Latin.’’ " Work, work, work; always work.” This is the motto of the subject under investigation. It is Christ. Oblivious to all surroundings, he delves into his books and works industriously, incessantly, indefatigably — ah, what would our classmate from Kutztown do if it were not for his books. He is above all things a linguist, famous for his willing- ness — or unwillingness — to help his co-workers in Greek. He won half the Sophomore German prize, and who shall ever forget his German essay on “Walther von der Vogelweide?” But this man Christ is a queer combination of freakishness. He is a poet, and distinguished himself in the Emerald and White issue of the Weekly by his " Ode to the Shower-bath.” He is a musician who charms the ear of the most exacting critic with his Beethoven and his Wagner, or mocks the piping sparrow with his flute. Even Christ has gone the way of all college men and has taken up courtship on the side. His trips to Bethlehem have been noted with pleasure by his friends who think that Paul ought to have something to take him away from his work now and then. There is something about Christ which is his unmistakable mark. A volume of incoherent sounds always betrays his approach. “ R-r— r-r-w-r-r-w-r-r.” And if that is not Christ then his inevitable “Baa!” is an unerring sign. 61 George B. F. Crichton 75 E.

Medicine. “Neither a borrower nor a lender be.” What did you say his name was — Creighton, Critchton, or Crichon? This was our first concern with this Philadelphian and altho the catalog spelled it Crichter, he declares his name is Crichton. It was in the game with Ursinus on Thanksgiving Day that George suddenly made himself famous. With the score against us and our team fighting hard, he quickly and easily grabbed a forward pass from Caskey, and hugging the pigskin tightly he ran almost to their goal line — in fact so near that we were able in the next few minutes to make a touchdown and tie the score. This won for him not only football glory but also membership in the Magi Club of which he had been only a “prospect.’’ George has a peculiar proclivity for borrowing, with an especial weakness for razors. His many dates downtown necessitate his frequent use of this tonsorial implement and his friends are often called upon for assistance. In Mathematics, Crichton, in his Junior year has the distinction of being the best and poorest of his class in Calculus. He cannot skip any classes in this subject, for his absence would be too noticeable. In Chemistry, too, Crichton excels. He is deeply involved in the mysteries of this science and the Lab. is the first place we go to find him. 62 Eugene R. DeLong Geigers Mills, Pa. Doc Born at Geigers Mills, November 5, 1895. Prepared at Birdsboro High School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1914. Scientific Course. Magi Club. Berks County Club. Delta Theta. Class Football (2). Class Basketball (I, 2); Manager. Class Baseball (1, 2); Captain. Luth- eran. Democrat. Entomology. “For he’s a jolly good fellow. " We graciously forgive “Doc” his first name. In the first place he is not responsible for it, and secondly he has done his best to live it down. Any friend inquiring at the Dorms for Eugene DeLong would experience difficulty in obtaining the re- quired i nformation, for here it is “Doc” DeLong. Not only is this combination pleasingly alliterative, but the name has come to be a part of himself — and he is known by no other. On hearing “Doc” conversing with friend he would be immediately classified as a third bass on the Glee Club, altho that organization is not so fortunate as to include DeLong among its members. His booming bass voice is his most striking characteristic, and his thunderous “Ye Boy!” has rung over many a field of inter-class battle, for “Doc” is one of our most prominent class athletes. Baseball is his favorite avocation, altho he is equally at home in the basketball cage and has starred for 1918 in both branches of sport. “Doc” shares with Markley the honor of being the boss rabbit hunter of the class; but when it is a question of picking the supreme Nimrod we are at a loss, for “Doc” and Kehl are equally graphic in the narration of their exploits. 63 Gerhard F.

Teaching. “With such discordant noises jarrest the celestial harmonies. " If noise and hilarity could make electricity Euchler would put the power house out of com- mission. “Mike” has a deep-rooted antipathy for anything that is quiet, and when he is weary of talking (if that is possible) he wakes the echoes with his comet. The Campus Harmony Quartet would be incomplete without Gerhard Euchler. One might suppose that several years of college atmosphere would subdue the boyishness of this noisy individual. Far from it. His noise-making propensities have grown with his increasing bulk, and his general characteristic is manifested in the fact that in his Junior year he has neglected his comet to practise on the drums. The gymnasium is a good place for “Mike” and if he could not relieve his pent-up energy by feats of strength and skill in the gymnasium he might be troublesome. We are glad to be able to say that " Mike’s” boister- ousness is entirely harmless. Just where he acquires his fondness for bow ties nobody knows, but those ties are quite in keeping with his general loudness . “Mike is a good hiker and has every apple tree spotted for miles around. 64 Fred J.

It did not take long for the class of 1918 to come to a realization of the value of Scranton’s con- tribution to its ranks. On the very first day of our career at Muhlenberg, Fiedler was elevated to the office of class president. It proved a happy choice, and since then Fred has been one of the big men of the class. He is not of those who believe in sub- ordinating business to pleasure, but he has an amaz- ing faculty of occasionally wading thru his studies for the following day in time to hit the second show at the Orpheum, or to hammer out some iambic tetrameter. If this industrious individual may be said to have a specialty, it is English. When Fred pulls less than an A plus on a Novel report, ordin- ary mortals have dismal visions of D’s. This literary ability was early appreciated by his class- mates, and in Sophomore year the gentleman from the anthracite district was given supervision of the 1918 number of the Weekly. The success of this publication led to Fred’s being entrusted with the destinies of The 1918 Ciarla, and since the election of Fiedler as chief-of-staff the members of the Class of 1918 have had no misgivings as to the piloting of their year-book safe into port. 65 Allen S.

" Like a scurvy politician, seem to see the things thou dost not.” A level-headed business man, a keen politician; a reliable man on the job — that is Allen S. Fisher, who represents the best that Bechtelsville produces. Fisher has a commendable ambition to help lig hten the labor of the housewives of America, and he is introducing with the thoroness of a shrewd Yankee horse-trader his aluminum cooking utensils into the homes of progressive matrons wherever he can find them. Fisher has chiseled his name on the tablet of “Who’s Who at Muhlenberg?” by the establishment of an employment bureau. This most worthy venture is Allen’s own pet scheme, but he has magnanimously given the credit to the M. C. A., and in its name has been carrying on the work. Following his political proclivities Fisher often gets his hand in on class elections, but, let us hasten to add, his schemes are always laid “for the good of the class.” Allen himself says he was not built for speed; he is the slow and sure kind; and we all say of him he can be depended upon. This means infinitely much when applied to a waiter at the Commons. 66 Harvey E. Greaves 317 Walnut St., Catasauqua, Pa. Gravey Born at Hokendauqua, Pa., January 27, 1894. Prepared at East Stroudsburg Normal School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1914. Philo- sophical Course. Lutheran. Law. “ With such hair, too.” Harvey had his hair curled in his infancy and he has never been able to get over it. Indoors he is always conspicuous by the hyacinthine growth on his scholarly dome. It is thru his beautiful hair that he wins his way into the hearts of the fair maidens of Catasauqua. His friends tell the story of a very disconcerting leap-year experience in which Harvey played a prominent part. Coming to college one morning when the cars were crowded, his friends were scandalized to see a sweet-faced young lady suddenly sit down in Harvey’ s lap. Greaves disclaims all knowledge of the incident but there are eye-witnesses to substantiate the story. In the gymnasium Harvey presents a rather truthful picture of Ichabod Crane. The feature of Greaves’ Junior career is his work in Oratory under Prof. Brown. Most notable of his achieve- ments was his emulation of Aristophanes in his soliloquy on “The Clouds.” 67 Luther F. FIartzell East Bangor, Pa. “A” Hardshell Born at East Bangor, Pa., January 18. 1897. Prepared at Allentown Preparatory School. En- tered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1914. Classical Course. A. P. S. Club. Assistant Chapel Pianist. College Band (1). College Orchestra (2). Artist, The 1918 Ciarla. Manager, Class Tennis (2) Lutheran. Independent. Ministry. " A fine volley of words, gentlemen, and quickly shot off.” Introducing Mr. Hartzell of East Bangor. (Flourish of mandolins and mouth-organs.) Both of Hartzell’s nicknames are relics of his prep, school days. The latter is a mere distortion of his family name, and the former he received as a result of his wearing on his sweater a letter received for managing A. P. S. baseball, and of his avowed ambition of collecting A s in all of his English courses. Luther is interested in English, especially the Drama, in which course he does not cut many classes. He is intensely practical and considers the attending of plays the most important part of the course. It is a liberal education in dramaturgy to sit beside Mr. Hartzell in the Lyric and listen to his learned criticism. Time was when Luther was an authority on vaudeville, but that was in his salad days and he now eschews the Orpheum. But Hartzell is a symmetrical man — a well rounded personality. Not only is he a dramatic critic, but an art connoiseur, an all- around musician, a first-class book-binder, a brilliant orator, a typewriter agent, a prospective minister, a perfectly respectable waiter, a regular visitor in Bethlehem, a dabbler in tennis, and ex- assistant tra k manager. What a man! 68 George W. Heiser 427 Ashland Ave., Buffalo, N. Y. Syracuse Born in Buffalo, N. Y., February 22, 1895. Prepared at Mt. Hermon School. Entered Muhlen- berg in the fall of 1915.

Flappy, handsome Heiser came to us from Syracuse University in our Sophomore year. He had decided to come to a real place for his learning. George soon proved himself a cosmopolitan student — a good mixer in any crowd, rich or poor, high or low, male or female — especially female. This beautiful, blushing, bouncing boy from Buffalo, overflowing with animal spirits, showed himself in everything a boy — a young boy. But time has changed all this. He has since become more serious, and altho he is still hale and hearty and full of laughter, he is frequently seen walking about with that far-away look which betrays the accurate marksmanship of the little blind heathen divinity. Whenever there is a Sunday excursion to New York City, George will be sure to come late to class on Monday morning and there take his forty winks more. 69 Harold W. Helfrich 939 Tilghman St., Allentown, Pa. Spinx Born at New Tripoli, Pa., December 31, 1897. Prepared at Allentown High School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1914. Philosophical Course. A. H. S. Club. Alpha Sigma. Class Monitor (3). Class Treasurer (3). Class Track (2). Reformed. Republican. Law. “Laugh and grow fat.’’ Is it not strange that so many of these quiet boys are such lions among the ladies? Now here is Helfrich — a man of a gentle, quiet, retiring dis- position, satisfied with his pipe and tobacco, and his thoughts — who would ever think of looking for Helfrich on Hamilton Street every afternoon sur- rounded by a group of lively, laughing high school girls? We are told that Harold has a special interest in one of his high school friends who is the star on the stage of his affections, the lively, laugh- ing group being only the chorus, so to speak. “Spinx” is not athletically inclined, but he has shown a partiality toward track work. It has been suggested that he goes out for track only to avoid “physical torture and his infatuation for his pipe and tobacco would seem to corroborate this sus- picion for his interest in track work does not appear to be strong enough to overcome his fondness for his pipe. 70 ME J®H8 Joseph Santee Kleckner 108 S.

He has won dis- tinction both for his active support of all inter- class athletics and in the high degree of scholarship which he has consistently maintained. He is engaged in a “thundering” lot of activities at college, which is not only a recognition of his ability but also a sign of his popularity. In spite of the multiplicity of his interests he contrives to steal away regularly at certain seasons in order to accom- pany his pater on piscatorial expeditions from which he returns with a “thundering” basketful of the denizens of the Delaware. It is a pleasure to hear Joe talk with his deep bass voice, resonant and sonorous. But he can write as well as talk, and a “thundering” lot of this Ciarla is the work of our precise Nazarene. Joseph is always well groomed — a perfect little gentleman in every situation, and as such he creates a good impression of Muhlenberg culture in the homes of obliging patrons on the Glee Club trips. Joe thoroly enjoys life. He has a way of spotting the funny side of every situation and his hearty laugh is catching. There are no dull moments in his presence. 71 Paul E. Knecht 926 Washington St., Allentown, Pa. Knicht ie Born in Camden. N. J., September 20, 1896 Prepared at Allentown High School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1914. Classical Course. A. H. S. Club. Alpha Sigma. Assistant Business Manager, The 1918 Ciarla. Class Monitor (2) Class Football (3). Lutheran. Republican. Law “Look, he’s winding up the watch of his wit; by and by it will strike. ' Quiet, unassuming, but more prominent in his unimportant way than many who are more verbose, is Knecht, one of our number who likes Allentown so well that he even spends his vacations in the City of Mostly Paved Streets. Knecht does not make any unnecessary noise, but he knows how to talk at the right time, as was shown by his per- formance in the preliminary Inter-collegiates, where he proved that altho a peaceful citizen, he was well able to defend his opinions in public. Paul is an ideally constituted “kidder,” as he can keep a straight face under any conditions. His bland expression of utter innocence after he has pulled off some bit of dry humor in the class-room has always deceived the vigilant prof., and some less accomplished sinner in his vicinity gets the credit — or the blame. At the daily work-out of the 1918 day-students basketball team, Knecht is never missing, and has been a big factoi in the string of victories this aggregation has hung up. Aside from his forensic, jocular, and athletic ability, Knecht is notable for his business acumen, which has been exercised in various class activities, notably on the advertising end of The 1918 Ciarla. 72 Charles P. Krick 548 N. Church St., Hazleton, Pa. Cannonball Born in Hazleton. Pa., March 22, 1895. Pre- pared at Hazleton High School. Entered Muh- lenberg in the fall of 1914.

Law. “ Look, here, upon this picture, and on this. This is the man who purloined one of the cannon- balls from the cemetery and carried it home in his trunk. This was the charge brought against him in his Sophomore year. Krick denied it and accused his classmates of perpetrating a trick upon him, but the evidence was against him for the cannonball was found in his trunk at home. As he was not at that time official photographer for The 1918 Ciarla it was impossible for him to produce any pictures which might prove an alibi. Ever since his election to the staff his “proofs of pictures” have continually proved alibis for him. Charles was the faithful janitor of West Berks and League halls until February of this year. Then he gathered the coin from the Hazleton concert and became an independent nabob. No such menial task for him any more. Leave him to his photography. After the concert had rendered Krick financially sound, he handed out cigars to his friends at the Junior Table in the Commons. The ‘“Manuel” bands around them were to the unsuspecting Juniors a sign of quality. Loud were their expressions of disgust when they discovered that they were smoking “ two-fers” in disguise. And to think that Charles P. Krick should pull one over on them like that! 73 Wayne Grattan Ladd 417 Market St., Wilmington, Del. Grat Caboose Bom at Wilmington, Del., December 17, 1896 ' Prepared at Wilmington High School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1914. Classical Course. Alpha Sigma. Scrub Football (3). Lutheran. Republican. “ You come late, yet you come.’’ Everybody thought that Ladd would not survive his Freshman year because he was so persistently sat on. The independence to which upper-classmen so strenuously objected has remained with him and is manifested in his utter disregard for the college schedule. If Ladd should ever come to class on time it would not be Ladd. When the “Caboose” creeps in the engineer is already blowing off steam and the Junior train well under way. Ladd made, ample use of his opportunities to develop his body as well as his mind, and altho he did not make the team, he looked good in a football suit. Grattan is conspicuous by his fashionable clothes and the atrocious colors of his socks. These, together with his monstrous spectacles, make him look dis- tinguished. And it seems as if Ladd is about to distinguish himself, for he expects to graduate a year ahead of his class. He has repeatedly threat- ened this and has always been a half-way 1918 man, as it were. Now he was a 1918 man; anon he was not. Now, following his dilatory propens- ities he is joining 1917 at the tail-end of their course ' 74 Raymond P. G. Leemhuis 215 E. 6th St., Erie, Pa.

' This is the gentleman from Erie. Whatever else there is to know about Raymond, this must always be first; He comes from Erie. Leemhuis is one of our best waiters in the Commons. He gets up for breakfast every once in a while. He is also a newspaper man — a journalist, so to speak. As such he early won distinction in his Freshman essays, altho such distinction, let us observe, did not prevent him from being bawled out the same as the rest of us. We like to think of Raymond as an orator. It was on the memorable night of the inter-society debate in his Sophomore year that he secured his right to such an appellation. He is a cold-water orator. On the night mentioned he sat on the platform before his audience drinking one glass of cold water after another. This we are convinced was a psychological scheme of his. He was debating on the side of national prohibition — and his side won. 75 David Fenstermacher Longacre 1065 Main St., Slatington, Pa. Sister Born at Weissport, Pa.. May 7, 1897. Prepared at Slatington High School and Allentown Pre- paratory School. Entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1914. Classical Course. Sophomore Football Program Committee. Class Treasurer (3). Soph- omore Honor Group. Lutheran. Republican. “He hath a lean and hungry look. " In Freshman year Longacre shared with Sussman the honor of being the biggest “boner” in the class. Last year Christ blew in and completed the triumvirate, and it has long been a mooted question as to who studies hardest. 1 1 is the current opinion that David buckles down to his books as soon as he arrives at Slatington, and does collateral reading en route. But " Sisters” intimate friends know that he is a mighty good skate in spite of the fact that he hands in his book reports on time. He fairly radiates good humor, and altho the weighty boy from Slatington is about the most “kidded” chap on the campus, he is always ready with a good retort, and rarely gets “sore.” In Sophomore year “Sister” steered half the class thru Navigation, and when last fall Prof. Horn assigned a Greek text for which no “Handy Edition " was on the market, Longacre saved the reputation of the class. David is said to know every girl in Slatington and since last spring has widened his acquaintance considerably, for he spent his vacation “conduct- ing " for the L. V. T. Co. Longacre yields to none in oratory and his wonderful descriptions of the candle, and the fair lady “gnashing her teeth” have since become 1918 epics. 76 Kehl Markley, Jr. Pennsburg, Pa. Mark.

If there were any benighted brethren of the Class of 1918 who entered college in ignorance of the institution then known as Perkiomen Seminary, they did not long remain unenlightened, for there was in their midst a sample of Pennsburg prepara- tion — one who quickly allowed information to leak out about himself and his glorious past at Perkiomen. Markley with his tales of personal prowess evidently impressed the tender and coy ones of Allentown even more than his own class- mates, for he early blossomed out in society. This downtown popularity has increased with each succeeding year, and when last fall the handsome giant from the Perkiomen Valley appeared with his romantic locks parted in the middle, he proved quite irresistible. “Mark’’ is one of our class athletes, and holds the college record for eating ice-cream. Each November Markley is missing for a few days and reappears with a collection of deceased cotton-tails, and tales of more. But let it not be supposed that his social engagements at Mealey’s — and elsewhere — occupy the whole of his time, for Kehl is also a student and is included in the notorious quintette of Rittersville candidates who elected Latin in Junior year. 77 W.

Teach- ing. “0 it is excellent to have a giant’s strength.’’ Here is a stockily built youth with muscles of iron. His well-formed body, his head firmly set upon his shoulders, his massive bull neck between them, pronounce him at once a mighty Samson among the Juniors. In his Sophomore year the Freshman Philistines quaked in his presence and thanked their stars that there was no jaw-bone ready to the hand of the mighty Bethlehemite. A man of Melick’s build was needed to help champion the athletic cause of his class, and his prowess was felt by our rivals in our victories on the football field. “Scrap” further showed his metal in his Junior year when he made the ’Varsity Basketball team. We are not surprised that a man of Melick’s quiet disposition should have had the reputation of never being seen with a girl, but Melick’s college days have not been spent in vain, for information has recently leaked out of his rapid progress in the good graces of the gentler sex in Catasauqua and Freemansburg. Perhaps the charm of his athletic figure was reinforced by his melodious voice which is often heard in the locker room man irresponsible mixture of harmony and discord. 78 Eluott N.Phild Fred F. Minner 719 N. 9th St., Allentown, Pa. Hans Bom in Catasauqua, Pa., April 5, 1892. Pre- pared at Whitehall High School. Entered Muhlen- berg in the fall of 1914. Scientific Course. Magi Club. Class Baseball (2). Class Football (3). " One vast substantial smile.” “Hans” is our typical Pennsylvania German lad. His favorite diversion is working on the farm where he says his chief delight is in taking care of the cows. In some way or other he claims this particular branch of farm work is of the great- est use to him in his college course. Minner always looks happy. His perpetual smile (some would call it a grin) covers most of his little round face and it never comes off. Even in the Pagan- Minister football game when he called time out and said, “Waid once, my headt goes roundt, " his smile was still there. Baseball is Minner’s favorite sport but he also excels in the gymnasium where his ambition was greater than his discretion with the result that he was missing for several days recovering from a strain he had undergone in the strenuous work under Dr. Schatz. Hans sometimes has a little trouble in keeping possession of his goat and scares the day students with his threats to clean them up. 79 E. Harold Moyer I 16 N. 6th St., Perkasie, Pa.

Busi- n ess. “ Tho l am young, I scorn to flit on the wings of borrowed wit.” A man of moods is Moyer — a temperamental individual of the genus humanum, whose harmon- ious soul is tortured by a “G " -string slightly flat or a bass drummer with shady ideas of tempo, whose rigid standard of humor is violated by a second-hand joke, and who is outraged by the retelling of a funny story. Music and wit are Moyer’s specialties, and he is a past master of both. His cynical criticism tears to shreds the average line at the Orpheum, and one caustic comment on a classmate’s imperfect attempt at a pun is sufficient to crush the presumptuous punster. The only poor humor Moyer laughs at is Tapper’s, and this one fault of the otherwise impeccable Harold is almost forgivable, for none of us is perfect. Besides music, love, and wit, Moyer’s other light occupation is tennis, which he takes as seriously as all the rest. Moyer not only tickles the ivories in Chapel and lays down the law to the orchestra, but he sings on the Glee Club and — shall we mention it — even essayed to handle a trombone in the band. Moyer’s presence in the band undoubtedly lent eclat to the organization, but his best friend could not swear to any audible result. 80 Lloyd M. Musselman 406 Market St., Perkasie, Pa.

' When there is the sound of an altercation above the arcade, investigation will usually reveal the fact that it is Musselman engaged in an argument. When his friends call at his room they simply gasp and say, “What! Again or yet?” Lloyd finds it contrary to his nature to allow anyone to say anything which does not stand in need of correc- tion or contradiction, and with his characteristic irascibility this polemical inclination sometimes involves him in very demonstrative controversies. One day this loquacious gentleman argued for a full half hour that he did not argue and when he is reminded of this he at once proceeds to argue that he never argued that he did not argue, and then we must leave him to his argument for he always proves his opponent’s case. Basketball is his favorite sport altho he shone in the Pagan- Minister game where the famous “Lloydee” yell originated. The girls bother him little, and as for fudge — he makes it himself, tho we are always glad to taste of it without seeing the receptacle in which it is made. 81 Chester A.

Chester is one of the promising young men from Perkasie, a hustler in any capacity, whether selling peas and tomatoes and mackerel in the Acme Stores or work- ing out his Greek prose to the satisfaction of his classmates and his professor. Hustler is his name. Yousezzer! And as for music, well, it is a difficult matter to conjecture what our band and orchestra would do without " Rosie.’ He is the only man who can play the French horn. Perhaps that is why he is on the orchestra and band. However, we do not affirm this. Chester can always be de- pended upon for an argument with the profs. As soon as a discussion is started in class this blushing youngster from Perkasie is ready to contribute his share of questions and refutations and challenges. Altho it is sometimes a matter of vague speculation as to just what the gentleman is driving at, still his prolonging the discussion must be recognized as a tribute to his wit. Chester ought not to have any trouble in life as far as his wit is concerned. Yousezzer! 82 mkSMi Stanley R. Shimer 1028 W. Broad St. Bethlehem, Pa. Stan Bom at Bethlehem, Pa., July 9, 1896.

But the fair name of Muhlenberg does not suffer for want of a champion when Stanley Shimer is present, and what there is lacking in strength of numbers Shimer makes up in fire and conviction. Our “defender of the faith” was one of the Sophomores who made themselves responsible for the training of the Freshmen in the rules and regulations to be observed in the locker room. In his Junior year this adeptness for bluffing the uninitiated was turned into the channel of hot air on the Magi Club. The mysteries of this scientific organization are often hinted at but never revealed by the wily Stanley. Shimer’s standing with the ladies is more or less negligible in Allentown, but there are whisperings of intimacies in the city next door and Bethlehem High School is always mentioned in these confidential asides. 83 Harvey C.

A smile that glowed Celestial, rosy red. ' ' An irresistible smile, coupled with rosy cheeks, explain this gentleman’s popularity with the ladies. Harvey is a very plain spoken man. He calls a spade a spade, and a shovel he calls a shovel. He also calls a liar a liar, even in a debate on a public platform. His use of plain terms makes Harvey a formidable antagonist in an argument and he is always ready for a verbal combat. He does not even hesitate to place himself in direct opposition to the deliberative synodical body which meets semi-annually in the faculty room, and even there his terms are just as painfully plain. With all his fluency in argument Harvey still admits that he does not know much. He claims, however, that he knows how much tobacco a man is able to smoke in a day. We suspect that Snyder knows a few more things than these. As cheei leader he was a revelation to the student body. His poetic motions in directing college yells won the admiration of all. Track he manages as well as his Greek, and he even teaches a Sunday-school class — girls, of course. 84 Charles Leighton Steel, Jr. 812 N. 41st. St., Philadelphia, Pa. Cholly Born at Newton, N.

" Steel was one of the unfortunate victims of the unkind fate which wrought such havoc among our athletes in our Freshman year. He sustained an injury to his knee which necessitated his spending some time at the hospital. This kept him out of football and track for that year, but the accident proved to be a blessing in disguise — for “Cholly” and the nurse. Last fall “Cholly” was again laid up in the hospital for treatment of his knee. While there his little nurse — well, it was just the finest fortune to have someone interested in the case give her personal attention to the patient. After he was able to walk on crutches Charlie spent with us such time as was not otherwise taken up, altho he had great difficulty in keeping track of his perambulatory auxiliaries. Every evening Charlie had to take a walk — for exercise. He was always accompanied by the pretty nurse lest he should fall and injure his knee. “Cholly” has proved himself a leader among us, and becomes especially prominent in pedagogical discussions with the Dean. 85 jSSSirilM Vernon L.

You might as well jump to your death as to be talked to death. The only difference is that in the first case it is active; in the second, passive. That is all you can be when Stover is talking — passive. If you can get three words in edgewise you deserve three medals, one for each word. Stover is a real business man. As business manager of our Ciarla he deserves credit for his able handling of the job. Of course business is mostly talk and therefore Vernon is quite in his element. Late hours with his friends at pinochle and later hours blowing off steam with his rivals in windiness, have been the cause of Stover’s reputation for somnolence. He usually gets up for dinner, but breakfast is a stranger to him. “Pipe” is another of our love- sick swains and makes frequent week-end trips home. Well, what of it? We never see him hanging around sighing like a furnace and making woful ballads to his mistress’ eyebrow. 86 Wayne G. Stump 518 N. 9th St., Allentown, Pa.

" The most noticeable part of Stump’s make-up is his necktie; after that his beard clamors for attention; and when the noise of these two has subsided, his deep thundering voice completes all that is distinctively Stump ' s. As might be expected of a man with such carefully chosen neck- wear, Stump is always “dolled up,” but this cer-. tainly is required of a man who aspires to a place in the social whirl of Allentown. His rock-bottom voice wins Wayne ' s way into the realm of the musical, and his church activities begin on the choir, where he has a special interest in the sopranos and altos. These dignified activities are sadly out of harmony with the obloquy attached to the commission thrust upon him by one of the profs, who appointed him official dog-catcher, so to speak, to eject from the class-room an intruding canine. " Stumpie” becomes garrulous on his pet subject of playground work; many and varied are his tales of masterly generalship in handling the rough- neck youngsters during the summer months. 87 Joseph Baruch Sussman 608 Grant St., Allentown, Pa. » Joe Suss Bom at Zitevyani, Russia, September 26, 1895.

He knows his Greek and his Latin and his German so thoroly, and he knows so many other languages into which to translate them, that when he is called upon for a recitation he stumbles all over himself, stuttering, stammering, repeating, overhauling, until only the practised ear can distinguish the finished product as English. Joe is known for his constant application to his work. Idle moments are strangers to him. If he is not in the class-room he can always be found in the library, where he is thoroly at home. Sussman regularly carries sections of the library home with him. The astonishing number of books with which he burdens himself has lead to the belief that he has established a circulating library at his home in the Sixth Ward. On account of his studious habits Joe neglected his physical training until the stem reality of a condition con- fronted him. This was too much for “Suss” and he yielded to the inevitable. In the gymnasium he immediately won the special attention of the physical director by his novel marching. 88 Clarence H. Swavely Boyertown, Pa. Deacon Born at Boyertown, Pa., June 2, 1891 .

Swavely s favorite sport is playing checkers. It is only his delight in this game which can ever keep him up later than ten o’clock at night. The exultant shouts of Fisher, his room-mate, indicate that altho both play on the square, poor Swavely falls victim to his scheming chum. Swavely is a busy man. He is one of our diminutive giants, small in stature but with a colossal capacity to accomplish things. He is a typewriter fiend and as such has formed a partnership with Dr. Haas. One of the “Deacon’s” feats in his Sophomore year was the beginning of the publication of an abridged Bible dictionary. Owing to financial difficulties the project was abandoned. Clarence is a hard worker for the M. C. A. He is tempera- mentally suited to this kind of work for he has always beeen a very proper young man. That is why we call him “Deacon.” But of late he has become less circumspect in his habits and his language. He smokes his pipe most furiously at times and has even been heard to throw out hints about a land from which there is no return. No doubt he means Europe. Sherman said, “War is hell.” We hope that Clarence will lead a less checkered existence after he leaves college. 89 Andrew E. H. Tapper 445 W. King St.. Lancaster, Pa.

Art Editor, The 1918 Ciarla. Class Secretary (2). Class Football (3). Lutheran. Republican. Ministry. " I am nothing if not critical. ' ' In many respects the most notorious member of the class and undoubtedly the biggest — in feet and inches, if not in intellect — is Andrew Tapper, who claims as his habitat the chief village in the “Garden Spot of the Nation. " The only character- istics in which the Tapper of today resembles the slim skyscraper who wore a green button three years ago are physical. Otherwise, we have with us a new model, built on a strictly original design. Tapper used to be a student; he still attends classes, but the pencil which is so carefully trained on the note-book is more likely to be tracing the outline of the pedagogical cranium, than transcribing the wisdom proceeding from the rostrum. Drawing is Andrew’s strong point, and has made him famous; he decorates his book reports, the bulletin-board, and what not with his crazy caricatures. His artistic career has culminated in The 1918 Ciarla. Tapper is a consistent knocker, and can find fault in the faultless, but this trait is counterbalanced by his genial good humor and general “nuttiness. For Tapper is funny, as classmates and profs, can well testify, and he has been responsible for more innocent deviltry than the rest of the class together. “A jolly good skate, " is the unanimous verdict. Woof! 90 Frederick Carl Troutman 104 E. Bunton St., Llewellyn, Pa. Troutie Born at Llewellyn, Pa., February 25, 1896. Prepared at Llewellyn High School and Minersville High School.

Troutman has a regular spelling match every time he tries to give somebody his address. “Trou tie ' s” specialty is class athletics. It was largely his direction as quarterback which carried our Sophomore football team to victory. Ever since, he has had a big hand in athletic contests with our rivals. It was once said that the Class of 1918 was so well represented in the college band because we are the biggest blowers. Troutman is one of our blowers and he can always be heard if not seen, but to Troutman’s credit be it observed that the blowing he does is always thru his trom- bone, and if the noise which this kind of blowing produces makes daylight hideous and darkness fearsome, yet we have the consolation that it is Troutman’s trombone and not Troutman. Carl has a rural name; a name which sets the angler thinking of the speckled beauties, but he denies any association between his name and his nature. There is nothing fishy about Troutman. He is a son of anthracite; he comes from the coal regions. 91 Harris D. Wertman Quakake, Pa. Peanut Isaac Born at Quakake. Pa., January 10, 1896. Prepared at Hazleton High School.

' ' Let no one be deceived by the unassuming appear- ance of our recruit from the coal regions, for as the little acorn grows into the mighty oak, so Harris Wertman, dubbed “Peanut” for his small- ness of stature, has shown unmistakable signs of mental expansion and development. Three years of college life have worn off the rough edges of the native of Quakake and the results of his diligent application win the approval of his friends. Altho Harris attends to his college work he still finds time to devote to his favorite diversion, which is shooting pool. His proficiency in handling the cue compares favorably with his able recitations in Logic. Physically, Wertman is most conspicuous when in the company of his lanky room-mate. These two chums present an illustration of the old saw that there is an attraction in unlikeness. DeLong and Wertman are the Mutt and Jeff of Muhlenberg. 92 Moses LeRoy Wuchter Orwigsburg, Pa.

Wuchter could not exist without his vocal safety-valve, which is almost continually wide open during his waking hours. There are many other distinctive characteristics of this beautiful blond specimen from the agricultural corner of Schuylkill County. Wuchter is a man of very decided opinions — so decided that those who do not know him well are almost antagonized by his uncompromising attitude. His intimates have learned to discount Wuchter ' s buncombe about fifty per cent., and find that “Mose " is at bottom a capital fellow, that his belligerence is all on the surface and very transient. Thruout our whole course Wuchter has been a power in 1918 athletic triumphs, and has also scrubbed manfully in college sports. “Mose” is a salesman; he sells — or tries to sell — during his summer vaca- tions, everything from corn flakes to information, from encyclopedias to pianos. To imagine such a handsome and masterful man free from any gentle bonds would require some deep thinking and besides, it would be an erroneous supposition, for Wuchter is strongly attracted in the direction of Lebanon. 93 Ex- 1918 Men Luther W.

As we look backward we feel that by keeping before us the standards set in our Freshman year, we have achieved honors as Sophomores that will always be of credit to the class and to our Alma Mater. The beginning of the year found us on hand to welcome a large and promising host of Freshmen. Altho desiring to show our new friends that we were proud of their company, nevertheless, in order to fulfill the traditional duties that devolved upon us, we had to give them a taste of real college life. Despite the fact that they were vastly superior to us in numbers, they found themselves up against an exceedingly difficult proposition in the pole fight, and in the banner scrap we showed them what we were made of by capturing their standard in less than six minutes of actual fighting, thus up- holding the reputation we had acquired in last year’s contest. We lost the annual football game to a Freshman-’Varsity-Prep. combine, tho not with discredit to ourselves, for we displayed the same fighting spirit which characterized our attitude in all interclass contests. Not only in athletics, but in scholarship and general student activities as well, have we endeavored to uphold the dignity of our Alma Mater. The favor with which the college calendars and the football programs were received is ample evidence of our ability along these lines. The success of the glee club can be attributed in large measure to Sophomore talent. Moreover, Nineteen Nineteen is well represented in the band, the orchestra, and in many other student organizations. These are a few of the things we have achieved in the two short years of our stay at Muhlenberg, and we hope that we may continue to be of service to our Alma Mater thruout our college career. While justly proud of our past successes, we are conscious of our many imperfections and realize that in order to accomplish the tasks before us we must feel with Emerson that “our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Historian. 96 97 Sophomore Class Officers First Term President Luther A.

After being enrolled in the college, we were instructed in the traditional rules and regulations of Muhlenberg. We elected tem- porary officers and then organized with the assistance of several Juniors. In a few days we were given a chance to show what we were made of. We went into the pole fight with a confident and determined spirit and by all-around superiority easily won that event. We were outgeneralled by the more experienced Sophs in the banner scrap and were defeated after six minutes of desperate fighting. We obtained sweet revenge for this defeat by winning the inter- class football game by the score of 17 to 0. Six of our men were given the Varsity “M” in football and a number of others did valiant work with the scrubs. Four of the Varsity basketball team were members of our class and in the two class games thus far played we easily showed our superiority. We overwhelmed the Sophs in these combats by the scores of 27 to 13 and 33 to 3. Track and diamond prospects are very promising. Some of our men have made enviable records in their prep, schools and will undoubtedly continue their good work for the college and for the class. Not only in interclass contests but especially in scholastic activ- ities do we measure our success. We possess a number of talented men in the various fields of knowledge. Six of our men are on the college glee club and sixteen of them have made the Cue and Quill. It is our sincere desire and earnest ambition that the sixty-three men who last September came to Muhlenberg to further their knowl- edge may ever be a source of credit to our Alma Mater and redound to her glory and honor.

Such work was arranged. The next fall two more applied; th e following year five others. Thus started the course for teachers in the college. The Saturday School gradually developed and during the session of 1915-16 the enrollment was sixty-five. During the session 1916-17 the enrollment is 108, or an increase of almost one hundred per cent. During these eight years six teachers have completed the required number of units for graduation and have received their degrees. At the 1917 Commencement, seven teachers will receive their degrees. So great has been the interest taken in this work that at the January meeting of the Board of Trustees it was decided to term the summer and Saturday sessions for teachers “The Muhlenberg Teachers’ College.’’ A special course has been arranged for such teachers as desire to make application for their degrees. The course so arranged has been submitted to the educa- tional authorities of Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey and has been approved by them. Both men and women are admitted; both may apply for degrees, and they will receive them as soon as a sufficient number of units has been accumulated. As the demand is increasing for teachers in the domestic arts as well as in drawing and constructive work, and as a supply of such teachers is limited, special effort has been made for the 1917 summer session of the Teachers’ College to secure for these courses instructors outside of the college faculty. These courses will be on a par with any similar courses given in the summer sessions of any institution of collegiate standing. The college authorities are much gratified at the interest shown by the teachers along this line of work and hope that the alumni and friends will put their shoulders to the wheel and help the good cause along.

Howard S. Seip, who is a prominent dentist of Allentown, was graduated from Muhlenberg College in 1885. He has been a member of the Board of Trustees since 1904 and upon the organization of the Athletic Associa- tion in 1905, he was elected president in which office he has continued to the present time. Doctor Seip has always been a hearty friend of Muhlen- berg athletics. This is evidenced not only by the fact that he has been the president of the Athletic Association for so many years but also by his regular attendance at the football games. Samuel N. Potteiger, Esquire Mr. Potteiger is an eminent lawyer and leal estate owner of Reading, Pa. He is a Muhlenberg alumnus, class of 1886. He has been a trustee of the college since 1 897 when he succeeded his father, Amos W. Potteiger, who had been a trustee from the date of the founding of the college and one of its largest contributors. This loyal alumnus is the enthusiast of enthusiasts for Muhlenberg football and altho living in Reading he rarely misses a game whether it is played in Allentown or elsewhere. 120 The Coach Dr. John B. Price is in a large measure responsible for the brilliant record made by Muhlenberg on the football field last season. He came here in September unknown except by reputation, but immediately made his presence felt. He at once won the confidence of the squad and the student body. Those who were carefully watching the situation needed noBloomsburg Normal game to tell them that 1916 would mark a new epoch in Muhlenberg athletics. The result of the Price system speaks for itself. Under Dr. Price’s tutelage, baseball is again a major sport at Muhlenberg, and there is every reason to believe that with such capable guidance Muhlenberg will occupy her rightful position in the collegiate baseball world. Judging by his previous record Dr. Price will in this branch of athletics, as in football, prove himself a canny tactician, a dynamic personality on the field, and an inspiration to achievement. 121 Athletic Association Incorporated OFFICERS President Howard S.

Leemhuis 122 Foot Bal The 1916 Season IT WAS not under the most favorable circumstances that a new coach last fall assumed the responsibility of shaping the riffs ua i future of football at Muhlenberg. At the end of the 1915 season even the most sanguine Muhlenberg rooter looked dubious when 1916 prospects were mentioned. Half the team were members of the graduating class, and several of the remaining Varsity men left college for other reasons. The outlook was anything but bright. No less than a dozen Varsity men — many of them stars of the first magnitude — who made history in 1915 were missed from the line-up last fall. Just before the close of the college year the announcement by the Athletic Association that they had secured the services of Dr. John B. (“Whitey ”) Price as coach came as a cheering ray of light athwart a gloomy situation. The record of Dr. Price’s successes at Ursinus and Trinity was accepted as an augury of a new era at Muhlenberg — a heartening hope which the event amply justified. The nucleus of veterans that greeted Dr. Price on September 7th last was small, but they were made of the right stuff. Gradually new material drifted in, and when college opened there was a very promising squad of athletes working out daily on Muhlenberg Field, learning the noble art of football under a new tutor. 123 The first game demonstrated the possibilities of the players and the capability of the coach. Bloomsburg Normal came down like a lamb on the lair, and offered less resistance than the scrubs. The 85-0 score might have been larger, but the coach had failed to train the men for track as well as football, and the long runs became at length a weariness of the flesh. It requires a clever student of Higher Mathematics to write ‘Q. E. D.” after an analysis of the episode at Villanova. Probably the best alibi for the 3-0 reverse is the troublesome toe of quarter- back McGuckin of the Main Line eleven. The Muhlenberg offensive in this game didn’t have the decisive punch, and several excellent opportunities to score were wasted. In the P. M. C. game the team struck a winning stride. Altho without the valuable services of Caskey and Gaston, Coach Price’s combination worked smoothly. In the first half the Chester cadets threatened fora time, but it was a passing cloud. In this game Stephens made his record run of over a hundred yards for a touch- down. On the following Saturday the Albright eleven fell an even easier prey. This was Billy Stephens’ big day, as he was in almost every play and is credited with nineteen points as his personal contribution. The back-field was materially strengthened by the presence of Caskey, and the team as a whole was a very well-balanced com- bination. Bucknell came to Allentown with the determination to erase the stigma of a 3-0 defeat in 1915. They left with a bigger balance against them. Heuer, Gaston, and Dudack were the particular stars in the 17-0 victory. By scoring two touchdowns in rapid succession in the first quarter, the Muhlenberg warriors were on easy street, and rested on their oars until near the end of the game, when the visitors uncovered a fine assortment of forward passes. Their aerial rally developed too late, however, and no damage resulted On November 4th the student body and other boosters escorted the team to South Bethlehem with higher hopes than ever before of lowering Lehigh’s colors. It was a memorable game. For three periods the rival elevens battled to a scoreless tie. In the last quarter a decision of the referee turned the tide. Lehigh scored twice, and the game ended 9-0. The work of the Muhlenberg team was a revelation to friend and foe, but the combination of Brunner, the rain, and the referee proved too strong 124 125 ME MB- The two hardest games on the schedule were played on con- secutive Saturdays. Following the Lehigh game our boys tackled Lebanon Valley, with the strongest team in her history. Muhlenberg gained more yards from scrimmage, excelled in forward passes, made more first downs, and outplayed the enemy in every department, but the game was won by the visitors on a 44-yard run by fullback Walter in the second period. Score: 6-0. The Cardinal and Gray came into its own again in Washington, D. C., on the following Saturday when Catholic University was handed the cheerless end of a 16 0 score. Those who saw the game agree that the Muhlenberg machine displayed the best form of the season, fairly bewildering the opposition with a dashing attack and keeping the game at all times well in hand. The sterling work of the line, with Daley and Landis back at their posts effectually halted any forward movement on the part of the enemy, and our goal line was never in danger. Everybody was now pulling for a Thanksgiving victory over Ursinus as a fitting wind-up of a great season. Interest was keen, for Ursinus also had been very successful on the gridiron, and was most desirous of adding to its collection a Muhlenberg scalp. A few days before the game, Gaston was hurt in scrimmage and ordered to the hospital. This undoubtedly had a big bearing on the result, for not only was the line weakened by the absence of a first-class right guard, but the team was handicapped without the star kicker. A 7-7 tie was the result of this hard-fought finale, the teams being so evenly matched that both sides were satisfied to have escaped defeat. A skillfully executed on-side kick put the visitors in a posi- tion to score, and our boys evened up matters shortly after on a beautiful forward, Caskey to Crichton, and a line buck by the former. The scoring was done in the second period, and neither side could obtain an advantage thereafter. The game ended with the ball in play in mid-field. The 1916 season was a thing of the past. Three games lost, one tied, and five won is a summary that tells but part of the tale. A total of 202 points scored while the opposi- tion collectively could muster but 25 adds some very significant details. The fact that but one team in the country had a better defen- sive record speaks for itself. All the victories were decisive, while the defeats were by slender margins. The work of the team was con- sistently good thruout the nine games, despite the usual handicap of faculty bans and injuries. 126 Snyder Dr. Huebner Prof. Fasig Prof. Reese THE MEN BEHIND THE GUNS 1916 FOOTBALL SEASON Stump 127 William Lawrence Caskey A reliable punter, an accurate heaver of the forward pass, and always dangerous when carrying the ball — the three qualifications of a star fullback — we find them all in Captain “Kidder.” Caskey will graduate in June, and has played his last game for Muhlenberg but he is leaving with an enviable record. He is four times winner of his “M” on the gridiron. Making the Varsity in his Freshman year, he has since held down his position by brilliant and consistent playing. William H. Stephens Stephens is also a member of the graduating class, but he entered in the fall of 1915, and has consequently seen only two years of service in a Cardinal and Gray uniform. But “Billy”’ has starred since the very first game he played, altho injuries kept him out of several important contests. “Doc” was the most spectacular player we had this year, being especially adept in running the ends and dodging tacklers. The games were rare in which this speedy halfback failed to pull off something sensational. Elwood Schwenk The third member of the 191 7 quartette is Schwenk, who has earned three Varsity letters in football. Schwenk has always been one of the hardest workers on the squad, and his zeal was rewarded in his Sopho- more year, when he became a regular. For the last two seasons he was Varsity center and held down his position in first-class style. Cool and brainy, an accurate passer, and capable on the defense, Schwenk has been a big help to the team and has set an example of earnest and conscientious effort. 128 H. Leslie Landis It was in the Lehigh game of the 191 5 season that Landis got his first chance. So excellent was the work of the inexperienced lineman in this important contest that he at once earned a regular berth. It seems that Taylor Field is Leslie’s favorite battleground, for he was a hero in the memorable struggle at South Beth- lehem last fall. Any one who has opposed Landis in scrimmage will agree that the big blond tackle is one of the hardest men to play. His position will not easily be filled. G. Russell Gaston Under the McCaa regime Gaston was coupled with Hubbard, the two forming a wonderful pair of ends. But last fall there was a dearth of heavy material for the line, and Coach Price felt the need of Rus s husky form where it could be used to fuller advantage. Gaston’s work at guard was exceptional, and more than justified the shift. But it is Gaston’s good right leg that has won him most renown. His specialty is placement kicks. Rus has played three years, and is Captain-elect for 1917. George F. Crichton Critchton entered the class of 1918 in Sophomore year from Philadelphia Central High School and got into ' several games of the 1915 season, but it was not until last year that he received his letter. Crichton’s favorite position is end, where he is a capable per- former. George was not quite able to hold down a regular berth, but he got into nearly every game as a substitute. On the receiving end of a forward pass Crichton is hard to beat. His star play in the Ursinus game averted a 7-0 defeat. 129 James F. McGovern A verstile pigskin artist is “Mac.” He is equally useful as halfback or end. With a little more weight “Mac” would be an ideal back-field man, as he is speedy, has plenty of grit, and shows judgment in carrying the ball. As he is only a Sophomore, and has already twice won his letter in football, McGovern should in the next two years develop into one of our most dependable warriors. George E. Delozier This short but powerfully built chap is just as formidable as he looks. His center of gravity is not far from the ground, and if there is one thing that “Haps” dislikes it is being pushed out of the way, as opposing players have learned to their discomfiture, “Haps” is very particular as to whom he allows to pass thru his own sphere of influence just to the left of center. Aside from this, his favorite pastime is breaking thru and spoiling the well-laid schemes of the enemy. Henry Heuer, Jr. When “Totes” drops back to receive the ball, the opposition does not know what to expect, for he can not only speed around the ends but is able to deal some smashing blows on the line. This was Heuer’s first year on the ’Varsity, but he played like a veteran. He was occasionally pressed into service as end, and took care of that position in greac style. “Totes” has two more years to go. and has not reached his maximum development He shows great promise. 130 Andrew J. Daley In sliding around interference, in getting down under punts, in low, deadly tackling, and in snatching forwards out of the atmosphere, Daley proved his excellence. “Hooker’’ is one of the New England quintette who won their “M”s in their first year at Muhlenberg. Daley was unfortunately called home before the Lehigh game, an occurrence which seriously handicapped the Price machine. It does not require an unusually brilliant brain to imagine a different result with Lehigh and Lebanon Valley with Daley at his accustomed post. William S. Dudack Altho in his first year at Muhlenberg, Dudack was one of the mainstays of the 1916 line. The work of a lineman is seldom spectacular, but “Bill” drew his share of cheers from the stands. Dudack, in spite of his heavy build, is speedy, and this quality was frequently utilized by calling on him to carry the ball on an off-tackle play. “Bill” got around like a flash was usually good for a substantial gain, scoring several touchdowns in the course of the season. Michael W. Fallon Not the least among the princes of New England is “Mickey” Fallon, who hails from Hartford, Conn. The Tipperary lad was an unknown quantity at the beginning of the season; the Coach was undecided whether to use him on the line or in the back-field. It was not until the third game, with P. M. C., that “Mickey” showed up so well at halfback that he became a fixture at that position. He is a hard, clean, fearless player, a splendid leader of interference, and mighty hard to stop when carrying the ball. 131 Joseph N. J. Fitzgerald This diminutive quarterback came here with a large-sized reputation, which his work last season has more than justified. Fitzgerald early proved his ability in his important post, and ran the team in all of the important games. “Fitter” is the personifica- tion of pep, and his “signals” at the close of a gruelling contest are just as snappy and encouraging as when the team trots out on the field. He has a clear head, and his generalship was rarely faulty. On the defense “Fitter” excelled in running back punts. Thomas J. Cabelus “Cabby” was general utility-man on the line. Wherever any one of the regulars at the tackle and guard positions was injured, the Coach sent in Cabelus, and the difference was not readily discernible. If Cabelus had taken himself and his football playing more seriously, he should have been able to hold down a regular berth. However, he played in enough games to win his Varsity letter, and has three years ahead ol him. There is no reason why “Cabby” should not develop into a star on the line. Samuel Wilson Daley’s running-mate at the other extreme of the line was “Mike” Wilson, formerly of Northeast High School, Philadelphia, and Penn’a. Military College. Wilson and Daley were an admirable pair of ends. “Mike” had played center before coming here, but Coach Price shifted him to right end, where the scrappy Quaker City lad was a brilliant performer He was quick as a cat on the defense in cutting in before the enemy interference was perfected, and breaking up the play. 132 Wayne W. Heffley The Athletic Association at the close of the 1916 season awarded Varsity letters to two members of the graduating class for four years of scrubbing. One of these is Heffley. “Jim” has been the unfortunate owner of a bad knee, which has given him constant trouble, and spoiled his chances of playing on the Varsity. His forte is drop-kicking, and there were few who could boot them over with greater regularity than “Jim.” Mark A . Bausch The other honorary “M”-man is Mark Bausch, who has scrubbed faithfully since his Freshman year. Bausch has been very prominent in all forms of class athletics, but has never shown Varsity calibre. The Athletic Association, however, recognized his four years of hard work on the gridiron by granting him a etter. 133 Football Record 1916 Date Place Opponent Opp. M.C.

Not only was there an apparent dearth of Varsity material, but the Athletic Association was unable to secure a competent coach. While the fate of basketball was thus hanging in the balance, “ Rus” Gaston, ’18, who had been a member of two Varsity teams, offered his services. The authorities accepted Gaston’s generous offer, and final arrange- ments were made for the schedule. When Gaston was seriously hurt just before the close of the football season, the problem was bigger than ever, for not only had we lost a coach, but a star player as well. However, it was determined to “see basketball thru,” and when the first practise was called, a gratifying number of candidates, mostly new men, responded. Gaston’s injury proved less serious than was expected, and he was out of the hospital in time to take charge of the practise several days before the opening of the season. The first game, as usual, was with the University of Pennsylvania. Gaston sprang a surprise on friends and enemies alike by going into the game in utter disregard of his injured kidney, and putting up a star exhibition of the national indoor sport. The game ended 33-15, and showed that Muhlenberg was by no means to be counted out as a cage contender. After the holiday recess the first game was played at Gettysburg, and our boys were rather roughly handled, being presented with a 43-28 score. The game was more interesting than the result indicates, the Muhlenberg boys outplaying their rivals in the second half, after getting off to a bad start. Next came the most decisive game of the season at South Bethlehem, where Lehigh handed us a 50-19 lacing. We are not without an alibi for this defeat, for the unavoidable absence of several of the players from practise the week before the game undoubtedly slowed up the team. 139 A brace of victories followed on the home floor at Allentown Prep. Ursinus was the first victim and fell by the score of 33-25 in an extremely fast and interest- ing game. The following week Moravian was similarly treated. The score was 32-25. What proved to be the final game of the season was played with Rutgers at New Brunswick. Altho the Muhlenberg five staged another second-period rally in which they held their opponents even, the early lead was not to be overcome, and Rutgers triumphed, 40-24. Soon after the Rutgers game the results of mid-year examinations were an- nounced, and it was found that faculty action had just about shot the team to pieces. Three games were still to be played, but the Athletic Association decided to drop basketball for the remainder of the season, and the games were canceled. Thruout the season the work of Gaston was the most significant feature, the big captain-coach scoring more than half of the points. Fitzgerald, the only other old man on the team, was consistently capable at guard, and of the new men, Dudack. Wilson, Smith, Lennox, Melick, and Gebert were the best performers.

The first call for candidates issued by Coach McCaa revealed only five Varsity men from the previous season. These men coupled with last year’s scrubs and an exceptional nucleus of Freshmen gave the coach the necessary foundation for an excellent team. Before we had begun our schedule of dual meets Coach McCaa resigned and Doctor Reese volunteered to take the reins. In the face of these discouragements the boys worked hard and were rewarded by the establishment of six new college records. Our first meet with Haverford found us handicapped on account of inclement weather and the dire need of an indoor track. Our men were in poor condition and after a hard fight came home defeated by the score 69 to 35. They captured four firsts and five seconds. The feature event of the day was the quarter-mile which Haverford won by inches. Captain Weber ushered in his banner season by winning both the 100- and 220-yard dashes. The bitter defeat at Haverford was followed by a reawakening and three days of strenuous endeavor in preparation for our old rival Delaware. Not only did our team emerge ahead by the score of 76 1-2 to 49 1-2, but they set up four new college records that will probably stand for some time. Captain Weber led the onslaught by hanging up new records for both the 100- and 220-yard dashes. Hubbard and Gaston broke the running broad jump and discus throw records respectively. 143 For the first time in four years Muhlenberg was represented in the Middle Atlantic States Championships which were held in New York City. We succeeded in scoring six points in these games, in which the best of all the track athletes of our smaller colleges competed. Captain Weber showed his superiority over a field of seventy-five men in the 100-yard dash, while Gaston took fourth place in the discus throw. Muhlenberg’s Victory over Lehigh followed. The meet was held at home and attracted the largest number of track rooters ever seen on our field. We were defeated on paper but our men set out with a “do or die” spirit that was sure to bring us victory. The first event landed us far in the lead and we were never headed thruout the entire meet, the final score being Muhlenberg 60 1-3, Lehigh 5 1 2-3. 1 1 almost goes down as an axiom, “ Captain Weber stars by winning with ease both the 100- and 220-yard dashes.” McGovern’s quarter-mile was a race that will long be remembered by those who witnessed it. The record he estab- lished was wonderful, considering track conditions. The work of Hubbard, Gaston, Heuer, and Devereux helped very materially in our point gathering. At Dickinson we found in store for us a surprise in the form of defeat. Our men were well able to defend themselves on the track, but lost out in the events performed on the field. We have again the same old story, “Captain Weber shows his heels to the Dickinson sprinters.” Captain-elect Fitzgerald pried his way into the hall of fame by equalling the college record for the one-mile event. Score: Dickinson 73, Muhlenberg 33. The meet scheduled for Alumni Day with Lebanon Valley was postponed because of a very heavy rain which made it impossible to get the track into shape. 1916 Relay Team First Runner — Ernest A. Weber.

Druckenmiller 145 The team representing Muhlenberg at the annual Penn Relays qualified in second place, which is the best showing made by Muhlenberg since 1911. When the race started Captain Weber immediately lost the pole, running almost last. However in the final sprint he rapidly forged ahead and finished a close third. Taylor started out at a fast clip on the second lap but the pace was fast and towards the end he weakened, and was passed by a man in the final sprint. McGovern ran an even quarter in fine style, finishing strong after passing two men, from Catholic University and Bucknell, Steel started leisurely, but upon reaching the two-twenty mark he made a powerful sprint which was all but sufficient to over- take the first man. He crossed the line only about a yard behind Franklin an Marshall. Each man received a silver loving cup as a prize. Inter-Class Meet Unusual interest featured our second annual inter-class meet. This was be- cause of the fact that many of the Varsity track men were debarred by the coach, and that both individual and team prizes were offered by the st udent body. The individual prizes were awarded: first, Hayes, 20 points; second, Gaston, 18 points. The feature of the meet was the work done by the novices, which gave the coach an excellent chance to look over their merits. Among the new men to show up well were Heuer, Stephens, Troutman, Bellan, Early, D. Druckenmiller, T. Druckenmiller, Dubbs and Hartman. Inter-Collegiate Cross-Country Run First Place Lafayette Second Place Lehigh Third Place Muhlenberg Muhlenberg won third place in the cross-country race held under the auspices of the Middle Atlantic States Intercollegiate Conference at Lafayette College, November 18, 1916. The colleges represented were Lafayette, Lehigh, Muhlen- berg, Swarthmore, and Franklin Marshall. Lafayette won the championship, Lehigh took second place, and Muhlenberg third. All the competing colleges had at least five runners, except Franklin Marshall, which had two. Muhlenberg entered but five men, and all placed. Fitzgerald, time 33 minutes, 40 seconds; D. U. Druckenmiller and T. Druckenmiller came in ninth, eleventh, and twelfth, respectively. Bellan and Dubbs finished nineteenth and twentieth. 146 The course was five and one-half miles in length. It started at the Northampton Country Club and led for most of the way over the newly opened William Penn Highway. Thru the city of Easton the race was watched by a large throng. The finish was at Pardee Hall on the Lafayette campus. This was the first cross-country meet in which Muhlenberg runners have competed, and the men deserve credit for the unlooked-for fine showing which they made.

Heiser Assistant Manager Frederick H. Worsinger HE announcement of the resumption of baseball among the major sports of Muhlenberg was greeted with favorable comment. Judging by the record which Dr. Price made at Ursinus and Trinity Colleges as a baseball coach, enthusiasts on the campus and in town expressed their complete confidence in his ability to produce the best aggregation of players that ever represented Muhlenberg College on the baseball diamond. The student body turned its attention to the baseball prospects with a lively interest and a gratifying number of candidates presented themselves early in schedule: the year.

At home 151 152 Soph-Fresh Scraps THE POLE FIGHT N FRIDAY afternoon, September 22, the third annual pole fight was contested by the Fresh and Sophs. The Faculty and a large group of the students gathered on the back campus to witness the fray. With a shout a small number of dispirited Sophs suddenly appeared running toward one side of the battleground. Another yell, and a large and confident group of Fresh came swooping on the rear of the Sophs. A few bold Fresh grabbed some of the ammunition which was bringing up the rear of their opponents. A short scramble followed, the Fresh kept the spoils, and both parties lined up on opposite sides of the field. The pole, to each side of which were attached seven ropes, was placed in the center of the field. At the sound of the referee’s whistle, both sides charged for the ropes. A grand conglomeration of shouts was heard from the confused mass of surging men, and volleys of rotten tomatoes filled the air. The pole began to sway, first toward the Soph goal; then for a moment the issue was in doubt. Finally the Fresh gave a mighty shout and tugged at the rope. Numbers told and the first-year men pulled the pole over their goal. A second time the whistle blew; a second time the pole crossed the Fresh goal. The Fresh had won their first class scrap. THE BANNER RUSH On Monday, September 25, the Fresh and Sophs again marshalled their forces for the second class scrap. To a tree in the college grove was nailed a well-oiled felt banner, the lower end eight feet above the ground. The Fresh, haughty with 153 victory, gathered around this tree with a basket of uncensored eggs and tomatoes. One Freshman was bold enough to climb the tree on which was the coveted ensign, the better to defend it. To the north the determined Sophomores gathered, ready for the attack, with their mysterious ammunition in the fore-ground. When the whistle blew the phalanx of the Sophs came forward. The air was filled with the spirit of fight and soon there was a fusilade of flour, rotten eggs, and decayed tomatoes. The battle waged fiercely, and much of the artillery was centered upon the fellow on the tree. They now fought hand to hand. For five minutes the mass surged from side to side. Then, on the top of the struggling contestants, an athletic form crawled toward the banner, and grabbed for it. A yell, and he was at the bottom of the clinching throng. Again the persistent Sophomore was on the top; again he grabbed for the banner. His hand clutched the ensign; he tugged and wrenched it from the tree. The Freshmen made a desperate plunge to win back their lost prize, but at the sound of the whistle the Sophs held the coveted banner. THE FOOTBALL GAME With one victory for each class the football game was of prime importance. On the Saturday morning after the banner rush, two stalwart teams lined up on the football field, ready to try conclusions. Both teams were confident of victory. The whistle blew, and the football sailed toward the Fresh goal. The struggle began, but it took both sides a while to collect themselves. But the line plunges and end runs of the Freshmen began to tell, altho the team work on both sides was not remarkable. The contest soon be- came a battle of stars. The first score was made by the Fresh, the result of a fluke in which the clever little quarter-back carried the ball across the goal. Both teams now settled down to hard work. Time and again the long end runs of Wahl 154 sent a thrill thru the Sophs. But they could not gain consistently. The Fresh made a field goal, and the half ended with a 10-0 score in their favor. In the second half, both teams played their best, and only after the Soph captain and quarter-back was carried off the field, were the Fresh able to make their last score by a series of vicious line plunges. Metz, Macintosh, and Wahl were the pivots around which the Sophs worked, while Lennox, Driscoll, and Silva formed the Fresh triad. The game ended in a Fresh victory of 17—0. BASKETBALL SERIES The opening game of the inter-class basketball series resulted in disaster for the Sophs. Their team work was a minus quantity. Arner played the best for the Sophs, scoring seven points. The particular star of the game was Kleckner, who scored thirteen points for his team. The feature of the contest was the generous work of Shelling. After the beginning of the second half he received the ball under the Sophomore basket, and amid the cheers of the crowd, donated two points to his opponents by tossing the ball thru the Soph hoop. The score was 27-13. In the second game the Sophs were again outplayed by the clever team work and the accurate shooting of the Fresh. The latter played as a unit and so carefully guarded the Sophomore basket that only one field goal was scored against them. This lone two-pointer was tallied by Macintosh who did the best work for the Sophs. It was a credit to the Sophs that altho hopelessly outclassed, they kept up a game to the finish. Nolde starred for the Fresh. The game ended with the startling score of 33-3 in favor of the Freshmen. After a considerable delay, the Freshmen finally persuaded the second year men to play the final game. Confident in their superiority, the Fresh started a lot of rookies against the Soph Varsity. Only in the second half did the regular Freshman team get into the game. Green was the brightest light in the 44-32 victory for 1920, which meant a clean sweep of the series. 155 Sophomore Football Team Captain William G.

Only two members of the 1916 club were lost by graduation. The incoming class last September furnished its quota of new talent, and this, in addition to the large and experienced nucleus from last season, promised a performance of unusual excellence. Club practise was begun earlier than usual, and the singing had been sufficiently perfected by Thanksgiving to warrant the appearance of the club on the program of the Thanksgiving exercises of Northeast High School, Philadelphia. The singing on this occasion, tho far from finished, showed the ability of the club. In the two weeks from the Thanksgiving recess to the Christmas holidays, the skit was partially whipped into shape. After the holidays, there were almost daily rehearsals, alternate skit and music, until January 26th, when the first concert was given at Perkasie. The enthusiastic reception at Perkasie dispelled any doubts there might have been as to the success of the season. Each subsequent concert showed an improve- ment, and the high-water mark was reached in Philadelphia, at the last concert before Lent, where the club delighted an audience of nearly sixteen hundred. The glee club had as faculty director Prof. Harold K. Marks, who has for the past several years had charge of the singing, and whose careful instruction was largely responsible for the excellence of the singing. He was ably seconded by Paul A. Mader, the student leader. The club was this year particularly fortunate in soloists. Schwartz, on the piano, Mader, in a bass solo, and Wahl, in humorous readings, lived up to their 1916 standard. In addition to these, Landis and Hoffberger, on the cornet and violin, respectively, were brilliant performers. 168 The second of the three parts of the program was “The Joy Flower,” a burletta written and directed by John A. McCollom, Jr., a humorous skit somewhat similar to “The Love Bug,” by the same author, which was the big success of the 1916 season. It is a tabloid musical comedy, an artistic combination of mirth, melody, and merriment, characterized by clever acting, breezy dialog, and high-class danc- ing by a “ Beauty Chorus. ” Wahl took the leading role, ably supported by Flummel and Miller; as “Chappie,” Wahl immediately captured his audience and held them to the end. The skit is a finished production from a dramatic standpoint, the events leading to an interesting climax. The leading actors were admirably suited to their parts. At the Bethlehem concert an experiment was made with an instrumental quartette. So well was this innovation received that the string quartette was at once given a regular place on the program, and for the remainder of the season rendered what proved to be one of the most popular numbers. The Philadelphia vocal quartette, composed of Messrs. Stephens, Miller, Heuer and Wahl, volun- teered to take care of one of the club encores and performed in real Varsity style. The program as a whole was the best balanced and most ambitious ever at- tempted by Muhlenberg’s favorite musical organization. The club singing, in the opinion of critics, left little to be desired; the solo numbers were all admirably taken care of; and the playlet alone would have guaranteed the success of the performance. The 1917 club has set a standard which future clubs may well strive to excel. PART I 1. (a) “Long May She Live” (b) “Bacchanalian Chorus” The Glee Club Arranged J. W. Elliot 2.

They alight on the roof of the botanical laboratory of a spinster sorority, and are presently informed of their situation by one of the spinsters. Their plight is serious, for it is a law of the institution that any male intruders are compelled to find the “Joy Flower” before midnight on pain of death at sunrise. Meanwhile they are allowed the freedom of the laboratory in their search. The aeronauts decide that the spinsters are rather light-headed on this particular subject, and determine to fake the desired “Joy Flower.” After considerable cogitation and experiment they hit upon a clever expedient, and reveal it to the sleep-walking spinsters, who are deceived by the ruse. With the coming of dawn, the spinsters realize that they have been tricked and demand the execution of the culprits. Just as they are about to be led to their deaths " Chappie” rises to the occasion and tells of his discovery of the true “Joy Flower” in the human heart. Seraphina, the Spinster Superior, desires to thank the aviators before they leave, and “Chappie” inadvertently gives his name. Recogni- tion follows, and it turns out the “Chappie” is Seraphina’s long-lost lover, who flew away just before the ceremony. " Chappie” is far from elated at the turn events have taken, and proposes to fly to the parsonage after repairing the aeroplane. But Seraphina has profited by sad experience and vetoes this uncertain method of traveling, preferring to walk, to the altar and thus run no risks of losing her new-found “Joy Flower.” Violin Solo Interlude Wieniawski ' s “ Legende” Mr. Hoffberger PART III 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . “Winter Song” . . . .

A contest for prizes aggregating $50 was announced open to all graduates and under-graduates who wished to submit one-act plays for the annual the contest. The winners were to be announced at the annual commencement exercises, the judges being Prof. Simpson, Prof. Brown, and John Hartzell, Esq. The first prize was awarded to Benjamin Hubbard, 16, who wrote “For the Regiment.” Second prize was won by Luther A. Abele, 18, with “Hearts and. Solitaires.” Luther C. Schmehl, 16, took third place with “Love, Law, and Dried Beef.” A fourth play, “Guilt?” was presented by the director, Mr. McCol- lom, who did not enter in the contest. The club made its first presentation of the plays at Perkasie on May 25th, in the high school auditorium. The excellent interpretations were the subject of much comment by the large and appreciative audience. Because of the renovations which were being made in both the Lyric and Orpheum Theaters, the club presented its plays to our Allentown friends in Hamil- ton Hall on Tuesday, June 6th. Everyone was in his prime, especially the female impersonators. The large audience unanimously declared the presentations and- the interpretations the best so far produced. In addition to their annual performance the Cue and Quill Club also took part in Allentown’s Shakespeare Festival which was held in the Lyric Theater on April 27th and 28th. They presented the kitchen, letter, and garden scenes from “Twelfth Night.” The difficult character of the Scottish Sir Toby Belch was portrayed with exceptional power by William Eisenbrown, while Edward H, Schlechter, 16, performed the part of the pompous Malvolio excellently. All who participated did so with marked talent and credit to the college organization. “Hearts and Solitaires” By Luther W.

Bellan l ‘ 0 Review of the Year IN ORDER to place the Association on a firmer financial basis, it was decided at the beginning of the year to carry on a campaign for $250, which resulted in the collection of about $230. This made it possible to make the annual $75 contribu- tion for the support of a boy in the Lutheran Japanese mission school, send delegates to various conventions, and secure speakers and lecturers occasionally thruout the year. During the year the association was favored with addresses and lectures by the following, on mission work and other religious topics of special interest to students: E. Augustus Miller, Esq., Phila- delphia, Pa.; “Mike” Dorizas, Philadelphia, Pa.; Professor Bossard, Rev. G. H. Bechtold, Philadelphia, Pa., and Rev. Francis Floth- meier, Olney, Philadelphia, Pa. Seven men were sent to the Student Volunteer Convention held at Princeton University last November, and a delegate was sent to the Lutheran Students’ Convention held at Chicago Lutheran Theological Seminary, Maywood, Illinois, in February. During the first half of the year “Christian Standards of Life” was studied at the regular weeklv meetings, while the second semester meetings were devoted to “The Students of Asia” by Sherwood Eddy. The biggest innovation in the work of the Association has been the activity of the Employment Bureau which under the supervision of the vice-president has secured employment for no less than thirty students. In some cases positions have been filled which will continue to give work during the summer months. The Christian Association has become one of the established organizations of the college and deserves the continued support of every student who has ideals for a greater and better Muhlenberg. 191 MUHLENBERG COLLEGE JUNIOR ORATORICAL CONTEST College Chapel, June 6, 1916 Roland L.

Bollman “There is always something in a Knutte.” 214 HEN Mr. Bernheim be- came treasurer and regis- trar of Muhlenberg College in 1907, the treasurer’s office was transformed from a quiet, dignified minister’s study into a busy store where the fellows get their stu- dents’ supplies and spend their loose change for candy and pretzels. It became also a gathering place between classes for the exchange of ideas and ecclesiastical discussions with Dr. Haas. A H ustler for Muhlenberg Bernie is in general the friend of the boys. He cashes their checks, orders books for them, and, being treasurer, relieves them of their surplus (!) currency. He hands out the jobs to the fellows who want to earn part of their college expenses, and above all, he keeps down the price of board at the Commons. Mr. Bernheim is a versatile man. Besides being treasurer and registrar of the college he is also treasurer of the Athletic Association and is responsible for the intricate maze of bookkeeping which all these offices involve. He knows the affairs of the college from A to Z and has at his fingers’ ends information on the minutest details of its management. But this is not all. In addition to these responsi- bilities, Bernie is also the college printer. This is his hobby. He gets out all programs for college affairs, tickets, schedules, reports. Summer School catalogs, and what not. All this work was formerly 215 done in town and the Muhlenberg Printery has become a big saving to the college in printer’s expenses. Mr. Bernheim has big visions of a gradual development of this particular innovation at Muhlenberg and hopes that some day the publications of the General Council can be turned out by the College print shop. When we add that the equipment in another year will be expanded into facilities for getting out the college annual catalog, it will be evident that the visions of a general publication plant are not at all idle dreams. 1 his spring the treasurer will occupy his new home on the college campus. The house has been built and presented to the college as the residence of the Treasurer of Muhlenberg College, the gift of the Class of 1890. 216 The Ladies , Auxiliary OFFICERS President Mrs. George Mosser Secretary Mrs. C. Ziegenfus Treasurer Miss A. Seiberling One Vice-President in Each of the Lutheran Churches of Allentown jHORTLY after the successful completion of the Allentown campaign for Muhlenberg College in the fall of 1915, a body of interested laymen of New York City visited the college “to see how things were done in Allentown.” To provide for the proper reception of these visitors, the ladies of the Lutheran Churches of Allentown made themselves responsible as a committee to give the New York guests a suitable welcome. The distinctive part which the ladies played in the affair was serving dinner to the visitors in the college Commons. This was on November 10th, 1915, and the event marked the beginning of a new movement for a greater Muhlenberg. The enthusiasm for Muhlenberg and the interest aroused by the campaign, together with this tangible form of active service, led to the organization of The Women’s Auxiliary of Muhlenberg College. Ever since that time the ladies of the Auxiliary have shown a cheerful readiness to be of service to the college. Their first interest was in the college Commons where the feminine eye was quick to detect a sphere of usefulness. The Auxiliary have been making up the table linen and the waiters’ coats, the cloth bein g provided by the Athletic Association. 217 ME The next achievement was one which had a special appeal to the boys. It was the fitting up on the third floor of the Administra- tion Building of a Students Room. This was opened for use during Commencement Week in the spring of 1916. The room is admirably furnished with tables, desk lamps, and comfortable chairs. A piano was already in the room but not all the boys can perform on the piano, and in the fall of the same year the Auxiliary purchased a handsome victrola for which the student body has since provided a number of records. Besides these prominent gifts to the college the ladies also cheer- fully gave their assistance on Alumni Day last June when they served the reunion dinner in the Commons. This is indeed a prom- inent feature of the ladies work. The object of the organization as set forth in the constitution is “ to further the interest of Muhlen- berg College and to undertake such work as the entertainment of visitors, inspection of the college, provision for certain needs in the college, or any similar work which the Board of Trustees may suggest.” The Auxiliary now numbers over two hundred. The significant feature in its development is the growing interest in Muhlenberg College among the citizens. With a vice-president in every Lutheran Church in Allentown and with ladies in all the churches giving some of their time and interest for our Alma Mater, a new leaven will begin to work which will bring the college more and more into the sympathies and interests of the community. 218 Muhlenberg Men at Mt.

As the Preparatory Department of Muhlenberg College, when both were housed in the old building, it had a very sub- ordinate position. Yet it must have done good work, for many prom- inent Muhlenberg alumni received the foundation of their education there. When Muhlenberg moved, the Preparatory Department, as the Allentown Preparatory School, burst its bands and showed decided vitality. As the promise of the new building came and the knowledge that the stay in the old was limited, this progress was not continuous, for no one would put good money into repairing a building that was soon to be torn down, and the modern boy of respectable parentage desires some pleasures in private school life. Yet somehow there was a strange sort of loyalty exhibited by the students. On November 6, 1915, the Preparatory School “took the bull by the horns” and made the promise come true that had been held out to them. Completed, was the building? Far from it! But it was better to be in a partially completed home that would gradually improve if men were kept at work than in an old, old place with many inconveniences that could not become much worse. The promise had been given that an electric light system would have been installed upon the occupation of the building, but they would not work and candles had to be used. The kitchen range that necessarily precedes breakfasts, dinners, and suppers, also promised, was not in place. The men worked by the aforesaid candles but they gradually stole away and left the tasks to be finished on the Sabbath morning. Breakfast, consisting of boiled eggs and coffee, was cooked over an improvised fire-place on the west side of the building. Dinner was taken downtown. However, the school is firmly established in the new building and is a loyal supporter of Muhlenberg. The great majority of her students look forward to entrance there. If they secure the school’s diploma they are well prepared to do meritorious work. The faculty is strong because it consists of college men, each one doing the special work he prefers. The equipment is of the most modern from dormitory to laboratory, from gymnasium to class-room. In athletics the school teams are made up of real students who use athletics as their diversion — not their profession. The school ideal is good sportsmanship — not with the object of winning by whatever means, but of losing if the other team is better. The Principal. 220 225 THE APRIL 1.

Harry Herman unburdens himself of the following pathetic truth: “The best waiters in the Commons are not those who hold soft jobs and wear white coats, but those who sit at the tables.” 23. Not much college. Many forget to return for classes. Sussman and Greaves, Inc., take Bennett into the partnership, and double their capital stock. Long- acre, on the Slatington line, takes a chance on a baby-sacque. 24. The official photographer (Mr. C. K. P.) takes another picture for The 1918 Ciarla. Progress! Markley, 18, tells a staff member a pointed tale of the jailing for slander of the editorial staff of a Perkiomen year-book. 23. Glee Club men canvassed for their dress suits. Alarmed at Markley’s hint, the Official Scribbler of the Calendar censors that unnecessary evil (The Calendar), and deletes all uncomplimentary references to the gentleman from Pennsburg. 26. Oratoricals. Leemhuis’ “shrapnel” wins the “sympathy” of the judges. Each lender of evening clothes on hand to cheer the man in his outfit. 27. Christ attains sudden prominence as a contender for the world’s heavy- weight title by demolishing Devereux’s punching bag with an irresistible left hook. Hartzell, ’18, nurses a large-sized grouch. 28. Jack Euchler demonstrates his general “hardness” by gamboling about in the snow, clad in a gym. -suit. Steel and Goering spend the evening in Fiedler’s sanctum, pouring oil and wine (3) on “Pop” Reese’s wounded ankle. 258 Cox Sons Vining 72 MADISON AVENUE, NEW YORK Makers to the Seniors of Yale Correct Hoods for all Degrees Best Material and Workmanship at Reasonable Prices Pulpit, Choir and Judicial Robes Eat Lyon Meats It will pay you to investigate the quality of our Meats We also sell Poultry, Butter, Eggs Provisions and Fish Both Phones LYON MEAT MARKET 43 NORTH SEVENTH ST.

Kleckner’s “ Nomads” wander to Nazareth and try conclusions with the local Y. M. C. A. Cope finds on awaking in the morning that his bed has been doctored by some irresponsible neighbor — possibly Christ. 2. Four valiant ad-seekers swoop down on the helpless business men of Allen- town in a supreme effort to put The 1918 Ciarla on a sound economic basis. 3. Snow. The denizens of Hall ”G,” reckless of all pneumonic consequences, exercise in the drifts in bathing suits. Harvey Snyder and “Mike” Euchler experience considerable difficulty in returning from Coplay. 4. More snow. Michael Micco demands an increase in salary. Werner Jentsch, on the way to Sunday School, is harried by “Mike’s” mongrel guardians of the college farm, who are irresistibly attracted bv Werner’s juicy calves. 3. Fallon and Devereux agree to retire at 10 P. M. for the next fortnight. Other inhabitants of “ F” have hopes of some sleep. Nase and Macintosh, with the connivance of “Teedy,” undertake to run Hoeppner into a romance, but the principal backs down at the last moment. 6. Tapper orates on “The Abolition of Capital Labor” and brings down the house. Bossard gives a daring illustration of “circumstantial evidence.” Moyer, 18, reluctantly expresses the hope that The 1918 Ciarla will be of average merit. 7. “Intolerance” finds a sizable representation in the Muhlenberg Box. Fallon and Devereux draw up a code of conduct, which they solemnly agree to observe during Lent, including an elaborate system of fines for infractions. 8. Harvey Snyder at dinner is shocked (and bitten) by an unwelcome intruder, which incident becomes the basis of considerable “kidding.” Krick admits that Ciarla photography is a strenuous occupation, but Stump claims that the advertising end demands skill and address of the highest order. 9. The 1918 Ciarla is assuming form. The pace begins to tell on the editors. Business managers also working overtime, and Krick is losing flesh at the prospect of taking another snap-shot. 10. Fiedler and Kleckner blow in to breakfast looking dissipated after a whole night’s literary debauch. (Half of The 1918 Ciarla is on the way to the printer.) The continuation of the Official Calendar is prevented by pressing business.

Allentown, Penna. 295 Joshua s Trip to Ooleytown I took a trip to Ooleytown, not many miles away. Where people wash their faces half a dozen times each day. And in the winter take a bath at least once every week, While in the summer every day; I think that’s most unique. It’s true in summer I can’t wait for Saturday to come; I like my bath and that’s the time I take it, if I’m home. In winter time, for bathing, 0 by gosh, it’s much too cold, Yet down in Ooleytown they bathe quite often, I am told. In Ooleytown the people go to bed so awful late — At twelve o’clock, why, here in Hunkville, we’re in bed at eight; Then up again at half past three or four o’clock, as fine As silk, but down in Ooleytown they don’t get up till nine. At noon we eat our dinner, but down there they’ve quite a hunch. At noontime to sit down and nibble what they call their lunch. They’re way ahead of us folks out here on the farm, they say, But I can prove that we re ahead of them by half a day. We have our dinner hours before they have a measly bite. Before they’ve finished dinner, we’ve retired for the night. The people down in Ooleytown are always in great haste. And weep and wail in anguish if a minute they must waste. Two legs each person has, the same as we out in these parts. But if they have to walk a couple miles they get faint hearts, And get into a horseless carriage, or a train they take — Such laziness I never saw; and they think they’re awake! In Ooleytown I found out how they clean the city streets; A citizen there told me this as one of their great feats. First comes along a man and scrapes the mud into a pile; Then comes the orb of day and dries that mud with his broad smile; Then comes along the wind from east or west or north or south; The dust blows in your eyes and you go home and wash it out. I went into a restaurant and ordered ham and beans; The waiter hollered out, and I thought, “Wonder what he means?’’ “One civil war; the enemy on top!’’ the waiter cries; I thought the man was crazy and looked at him in surprise. A fellow next to me said, “ I will have mince-pie today; Put lots of sugar on it, please — I’ll fix it up O. K.“ Then once again the waiter yells in some outlandish style — The fellow next to me opened his face with one broad smile. Sure as I live, the waiter said — to understand this is hard — “One indigestion in a snow-storm — let it be a blizzard!” 296 E. J.

When I got there a fellow ran to cut off my retreat; I clenched my fist and sent him sprawling out into the street. The next I knew I fast was held in the strong arm of the law, And such a crowd of people standing round I never saw. They took me to the lockup — I was shaking in my knees; They brought me up before the judge, surrounded by police. “ You’re charged with assault and battery, twenty dollars,’’ spoke the judge. I thought it was too much, but didn’t let on, so, “0 fudge,’’ Said I, “I do not want your salt nor battry, my dear man, But here’s your twenty dollars; let me go now if you can.” “You’re discharged,” he sternly said; I almost laughed out loud. I had a good farm of my own and of that I was proud. “Discharged!” said I, “Now my dear friend, with that I disagree; The farm I work on is my own; I’m my own boss, you see.” Of Ooleytown I’d had enough; I took the next train home, And to my wife I frankly said, “No more from home I’ll roam.” 2 J8 Daeufer’s Peerless ffeer Can be had at all the leading Hotels, Clubs and Cafes Daeufer - Lieberman Brewing Company Allentown, ::: Penna.

A brutal college sport which demands the attention of the whole institution during the autumn months. Sign placed on bulletin board. A rarity.
