The Juniors think ol it as their monument to posterity. The guiding spirit in all that has been written down in the 1923 CIARLA has been the spirit ol good- will and amity. We believe our readers will sarj this is true. Since the Annual is historic as well as im- pressionistic we have tried to remain accurate in things which call lor accuracy. W e believe our readers will thank us lor that. II life is the result ol stimuli this ought to be a good Annual, published, as it was, in the light ol splendid achievement by the Juniors in past times. But you will not think hard ol us, dear reader, when we say that we believe this rjear’s CIARLA is le meilleur livre du rnonde. DEDICATED TO Rev. William Wackerna$el, D.D., LL. D. PROFESSOR EMERITUS Muhlenberg College In Recognition ol His Faithful, Loving, and Scliolarhj Service to Our ALMA MATER Pafre Seven Page Eight William Wackernagel " Muhlenberg ' s Grand Old Man” - " WCTialLLIAM WACKERNAGEL was born at Basel-on-the-Rhine, Switzerland, September 25, 1838. During his student days no one had ever heard of a (SKSfcJ Student Volunteer Movement, and without the stimulus of a great mass . ' g S aL l meeting young Wackernagel reached the decision to enter the foreign field. For eleven years he served as a missionary in the Holy Land. In 1880 he was ordained a minister of the Lutheran Church. Three years later, in 1883, Rev. Wackernagel was awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity by the University of Pennsylvania. In 1880 he became the head of the Department of Modern Languages of Muhlenberg College, which position he held until his retirement in 1921. The Trustees of Muhlenberg College appointed Dr. Wackernagel Acting-President of the institution during 1903-04. In recognition of high scholarship and fine qualities of heart and mind, Muhlenberg College, in 1918, awarded the degree of Doctor of Laws to Dr. Wackernagel. Dr. Wackernagel sprung from a family of scholars. Two of his younger brothers are university professors in Switzerland and members of the Royal Academy of Sciences in Berlin, a society founded in 1711 and ranking with the Royal Society of England. Three nephews are university professors in Germany and Switzerland. Some of Dr. Wackernagel’s former students have gained positions of first rank in learning. In 1913, Prof. P. A. Barba, Ph. D., who has been elected to take charge of the German Department at Muhlenberg next year, dedicated his book “The Life and Works of Friedrich Armand Strubberg” to his beloved teacher with the words, “Affectionately inscribed to my old teacher, William Wackernagel, Muhlenberg College.” This splendid tribute from a man of broad erudition needs no comment. Thanksgiving Day at Muhlenberg will forever be remembered by Muhlenberg “grads” as Dr. Wackernagel’s day. Up to and since his retirement a splendid tradition has been observed by the Freshman class of the college each year in the form of a presentation of a turkey to “Muhlenberg’s grand old man.” The presentation exercises are conducted in sometimes as high as fourteen languages. We believe that few of the speeches, be they in whatever language they may, are not understood by our revered friend. The occasion will always remain memorable. Commencement at Muhlenberg College 1921 marked the close of Dr. Wackernagel’s active career as a professor at Muhlenberg College. His retirement with the title of Professor Emeritus and a pension was accompanied by a veritable shower of letters bearing many touching expressions of love and true regard from former students and friends in all walks of life. We remember one such letter in particular, written by an officer high in American military circles which conveyed in simple language in a setting of profound regard and veneration, the love for our honored teacher which was present in the heart of every one in that fine gathering. Gifts from graduates of Muhlenberg College since 1884 and from other friends were received and the undergraduates presented to Dr. Wackernagel a purse and a handsome loving cup as a tribute of their affection. The tall figure of Dr. Wackernagel, standing before that composite group, striplings in their first year at college and old grads with streaks of gray in their hair, responding so graciously to the occasion will be historic in the annals of our Alma Mater. That a man can be both wise and good; that humility is forever the sign of great learning; that unselfish service is the meaning of true greatness — such lessons as these we learn from the life of our beloved friend, counsellor, and man of God, — -Dr. William Wackernagel. Page Nine " CRHE . : ■■■ Page Eleven THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING Page Twelve THE DORMITORIES FOREWORD EAR of those higher up limits us in the material we can use in the sketches ol the pro- lessors and the other records in this section ol our hook. We hope that the reader will read between the lines. Rev. John A. W. Haas, D.D., LL.D. President; and Professor of Religion and Philosophy Born at Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 31, 1862. Prepared at Parochial School Zion’s Church and Protestant Episcopal Academy. A. B. University of Pennsylvania 1884. Mt. Airy Theological Seminary, Ordained 1887. A. M. and B. D. University of Pennsylvania 1887. Phi Beta Kappa. University of Leipsic 1887-88. D. D. Thiel College 1902. Fourth President of Muhlenberg 1904. LL. D. University of Pennsylvania 1914. Doctor Haas has done wonderful work as President of our Alma Mater in bringing it to the position it occupies in the collegiate world. Being inducted into the presidency just as the college moved to its present site, he has seen it grow in all respects — number of buildings, men on the faculty, and number of students — until the present equipment is stretched to the breaking point. He has now turned his energy to arousing the friends of Muhlenberg to the needs of the institution and will make a speech anywhere and anytime that is likely to aid his hobby, the making of a Greater Muhlenberg. We students know him best when in the office he becomes one of “us fellows” and shows a deep interest in all things close to a college man’s heart. Many are the arguments which occur in “Bernie’s” office during the wait for the afternoon mail. Doctor Haas usually upholds one side and the rest of us the opposite side. When announcement is made that Doctor Haas will speak in chapel, most of the students attend for they know something is going to happen. His subjects range from dancing to the undesireability of certain kinds of students. We know our president best not as the preacher, not as the lecturer, but as the little fun-loving man who pants when he becomes excited. Page Fourteen George T. Ettinger, Ph.D., LL.D. Dean; Professor of the Latin Language and Literature Born at Allentown, Pa., Nov. 8, 1860. Prepared at Private School and the Academic Department of Muhlenberg College. A. B. (Valedictorian! Muhlen- berg College 1860. Phi Gamma Delta. A. M. Muhlen- berg College 1883. Principal of the Academic De- partment 1884-92. Ph.D. New York University 1891. President of the Muhlenberg Alumni Association. Professor of Latin and Pedagogy 1892-1917. Pro- fessor of Latin since 1917. LL. D. Muhlenberg College 1920. This is our dean. Altho he is a small man in stature he is large in the work he has done for Muhlenberg. Being connected with the institution, first as a student, then as principal of the academic department and now for many years professor and dean of the faculty he has seen the enroll- ment grow from less than a hundred to almost three hundred, and expand from its cramped quarters at Fourth and Walnut Sts. to its large and beautiful campus on the present site. Doctor Ettinger is the custodian of the big book, by the signing of which we be- came bona fide students of Muhlenberg. In “The Dean” are personified those traditions which mean so much to Muhlenberg and the development of college spirit. He is a good friend to every Muhlenberg man and will do anything for us except allow us to escape taking his “Lat-teen.” Rev. John A. Bauman, Ph.D., D.D. Professor of Mathematics Born at Easton Pa., September 21, 1847. A. B. (Valedictorian) Muhlenberg 1873. A. M. Muhlenberg 1876. Ordained a Minister of the Lutheran Church 1876. Professor of Latin, German and English Gustavus Adolphus College, 1881-85. Asa Packer Professor of Natural and Applied Science Muhlenberg 1885-97. Ph. D. Muhlenberg 1894. Professor of Mathematics and Astronomy since 1897. D. D. Muhl- enberg 1920. Dr. Bauman is now the oldest man on the Muhlenberg faculty both in point of years and service. Sitting at his chair and hand- ing us our marks on folded pieces of paper, Doctor Bauman personifies the accurate- ness which he tries to instill in the usually wandering minds of the college student. Doctor Bauman has had a varied exper- ience in the teaching profession. He has taught a great number of subjects since he was elected to the Muhlenberg faculty. His courses have ranged from the classics to the sciences but in later years he was con- fined himself to mathematics. We can imagine no finer enjoyment for Dr. Bauman than will come to him as the plans for a Greater Muhlenberg become realized. A bigger, finer school is only pos- sible for us because the seeds of greatness have been sown by men of devotion and un- selfishness. We count Dr. Bauman as one of the little band of illustrious pioneers which has made a greater Alma Mater pos- sible. Page Fifteen Rev. Robert R. Fritsch, A.M. Chaplain; Professor of German and Religion Born in Allentown, Pa., September 10, 1879. Pre- pared at Allentown High School. A. B. Muhlen- berg College 1900. A. M. Muhlenberg College 1903. A. M. Illinois Wesleyan University 1907. Instructor in Greek at Muhlenberg College 1907-08. Instructor 1908-15. Elected Assistant Professor 1915. Ordained a Lutheran Minister 1915. Elected Professor of Re- ligion 1921. The professor with whom the Freshmen come into contact the most is Professor Fritsch for, besides teaching Freshman re- ligion, and Freshman German, he is the Chaplain of the college and as such presides at chapel services each day. Under the tutelage of Professor Fritsch the Fresh- men get an outlook on religion which is new to most of them, and in connection with the same course he offers the opportunity of ob- taining a diploma showing the student’s fit- ness to teach a Sunday School class. Under Professor Fritsch’s care the De- part of German has prospered so that its courses cover more phases than perhaps any other department in college. He is also an active minister with a charge in East Allentown which he has built from insig- nificancy to a parish supplying the needs of the Lutherans of that section of the city. Robert C. Horn, A.M. Professor of the Greek Language and Literature Born at Charleston S. C. t Sept. 12, 1881. Prepared at Charleston High School. A. B. Muhlenberg Col- lege 1900. Graduate Work at John Hopkins Univer- sity 1900-01. A. M. Muhlenberg College, 1903. A. M. Harvard University 1904. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Mosser-Keck Professor of the Greek Language and Literature 1905. Professor Horn has taken many burdens of administration from Doctor Haas’ should- ers. Not only does he hand out excuses to any one who has overslept himself, but he is also the person who makes up the dread- ed casualty list. His hobby is Greece. Greek art, Greek language, Greek literature, Greek dress, in fact all things that have anything to do with the land of Homer, Plato, and Aristotle are dear to the heart of “Bobby.” To him Greek is not a dead language, but the effort that is necessary to inject it into the heads of most of us make it appear that we are dead, at least from the neck up. Those of us who do not learn how to de- cline a Greek noun at least learn how to ride a Greek horse. Page Sixteen Harry D. Bailey, A.M. Professor of Biology. Born at Easton, Pa., January 14, 1881. Prepared at South Easton High School. A. B. Lafayette Col- lege 1904. A. M. Lafayette College 1909. Phi Beta Kappa. Attended Biological Laboratory at Cold Springs Harbor, Long Island in the summer of 1903. Appointed Instructor in Biology, Muhlenberg College, 1909. Elected Professor of Biology 1910. Prof. Bailey has been in charge of our Biology Department for several years and he has made it second to none among the colleges of this state. Prof. Bailey is in his laboratory more of his waking hours than he is out of it. Both his work and his play are the different fields of the Natural Sciences. The courses he offers range from Bacteriology to Ornithology. When he wants to turn his mind from plants and animals, he plays either chess or tennis, and he enters into these with the same vim with which he cuts up a guinea pig. As chairman of the faculty committee on Student Activities, Prof. Bailey will give advice to anyone from the mightiest mem- ber of Student Council to the meekest Freshman who is persecuted by the terrible Sophomores. All of us know we can go to Prof. Bailey with our troubles and he will listen to us with sympathetic ears. j| I " " 9 Stephen G. Simpson, A.M. Professor of English. Born at Easton, Pa., May 4, 1874. Prepared at South Easton High School. A. B. Lafayette College 1896. A. M. Lafayette College 1899. Phi Beta Kappa. Summer courses at Columbia University 1903-05. Instructor in English, Muhlenberg College, 1911-14. Elected Assistant Professor 1914. Elected Professor 1921. Here is the professor who shows the Frosh how insignificant they really are. Lucky is the new student who gets thru his first year at Muhlenberg without a good “bawling out” from “Teedy.” After a few visits to the library and some talks with him the Freshman learns that “his bark is worse than his bite” and that the gentle- man to the left is a good fellow and full of fun. Besides being Professor of English he is also Librarian, and, altho the present room is insufficient, it is dear to his heart. He is looking for a new library building where he will have space enough for all of his books. In class Prof. Simpson holds the attention of the students by various novel ways and as an interpreter of the new poetry of the age he is very entertaining. As we progress in our college life we ap- preciate more and more what a man of Prof. Simpson’s views does for school life. Page Seventeen Albert C. H. Fasig, M.S. Professor of Natural and Applied Sciences. Born at Reading, Pa., September 18, 1888. Pre- pared at Reading High School. B. S. Muhlenberg 1909. Alpha Tau Omega. M. S. Muhlenberg Col- lege 1910. Chemist in the Department of Meat and Milk Inspection, Reading. Elected Instructor in the Department of Natural and Applied Sciences 1913. Elected Assistant in the same Department 1917. Elected Professor 1920. Prof. Fasig is the faculty representative to the Athletic Association and as such has taken a very active interest in athletics here at Muhlenberg. He played on the first football team here at Muhlenberg and since then has seen the star of Muhlenberg rise in sports until Lehigh bows before us. During the football season “Tut” and his side kick “Guerny” are on the football field every afternoon until dark for there is nothing so pleasing to Prof. Fasig as a winning football team. As the head of the Department of Chem- istry Prof. Fasig has built up that depart- ment and now is looking for a new science building. In “Tut’s” classes we learn not only chemistry, but we get an idea of what Muhlenberg means not only in scholarship but also in athletics and school spirit and indeed unfortunate is the Freshman who does not come out of his class with the idea of giving his best for Muhlenberg. Rev. John D. M. Brown, A.M. Professor of English. Born at Lebanon, Pa., December 2, 1883. Pre- pared at Lebanon High School. A. B. Muhlenberg College 1906. A. M. Columbia University 1907. Ordained a Minister in the Lutheran Church 1910. Elected Instructor at Muhlenberg College 1912. As- sistant Professor 1915 ; Professor 1920. This year Professor Brown has been able to devote his time entirely to the English Department since a new member has been added to the faculty to teach the Romance languages. His favorite type of literature is the drama and he offers some very fine courses in the drama of different countries. During his lectures he often stops to read portions of the play he is discussing. He interpre ' .s them in such a way that his hearers can easily picture the scene on the stage. Another of Prof. Brown’s strong points is his oratory. He can draw word pictures that are seldom equalled in the pulpit. Un- der his tute ' age, oratory has become a leading study here at Muhlenberg and students trained by him have made remark- able showings in the IntercoPegiate Orator- ical contests. He has been dramatic direc- tor of the Glee Club for many years and has produced skits that are always a lead- ing part of the Club’s programme. Page Eighteen Isaac M. Wright, Pd.D. Professor of Philosophy and Pedagogy. Born at Scio, N. Y., March 7, 1879. Prepared at Belmont High School. B. S. Alfred University, 1904. Pd.M. New York University 1914. Pd.D. New York University 1916. Elected Professor of Philosophy and Pedagogy Muhlenberg College 1917. Phi Kappa Tau. Phi Delta Kappa. Director of Ex- tension Courses. “Don’t cha know” that this is the pro- fessor of education and philosophy at Muhl- enberg? His great fault in the eyes of us students is his great love for “tripping us up” on some catch question. He likes to show us we don’t know anything and after one week in his logic class every Junior agrees with him. Passing on then we come to the serious side of the Doctor. He is a good organizer and has shown it by the management of the extension department. When Dr. Wright came to Muhlenberg the summer and Saturday schools had comparatively few students, but this year they have many more students than can be accommodated in the regular college courses. Dr. Wright’s specialty is education and he has succeeded in placing many Muhlen- berg graduates in excellent teaching posi- tions. Henry R. Mueller, A.M. Professor of History. Born July 21, 1887. A. B. Muhlenberg College 1909. A. M. Columbia University 1915. Post Grad- uate Work at Columbia University 1914-17. Uni- versity Scholar, Columbia University 1915-16. Uni- versity Fellow, Columbia University 1916-17. A. E. F. University of Paris 1919. Elected Professor of History and Political Science Muhlenberg College 1920. This is Professor Mueller’s second year as a member of the Muhlenberg faculty and under his direction the Department of History has taken a large step forward. He has started several new courses besides developing the regular courses. Prof. Mueller believes in work, and work we do in his classes, but we receive a knowledge of history that will aid us great- ly in understanding the problems of to-day. Professor Mueller was with the American Army in France and after the signing of the armistice he did several months of post- graduate work in the University of Paris. American history from the adoption of the Constitution to the Civil War is Pro- fessor Mueller’s specialty and he is look- ing forward to the time when the Depart- ment of History is so enlarged that he can devote more time to his specialty. Page Nineteen Anthony S. Corbiere, Ph.B. Instructor in Romance Languages. Born at Nice, France, March 8, 1893. Prepared at Tacoma High School. Department of Jourmlism, University of Washington 3 years. Phi Kappa Sigma. Sigma Delta Chi. Associate University Players. Sergeant Major Ambulance Service U. S. A. A. E. F. Ph. B. Muhlenberg College 1920. Graduate Work Columbia University 1920-21. Uni- versity of Pennsylvania 1921-22. Mr. Corbiere is one of the new men on the faculty at Muhlenberg this year. As he was born in France he is well versed in French and is now teaching us that lan- guage. Mr. Corbiere served in the Ambulance Corps with the American Army in France. While stationed at Camp Crane he came into contact with Muhlenberg and liked it so well that after the war he returned here to complete his college course. Before the entry of the United States into the world war, he had spent three years at the University of Washington, where he was especially interested in journalism and dramatics. We can only wish Mr. Corbiere continued success in his teaching career here at Muhl- enberg and hope that the ties of friendship will grow closer with each successive year. William S. Ritter, B.S. Director of Physical Education. Born at Allentown, Pa., May 17, 1892. Prepared at Allentown Preparatory School. B. S. Muhlenberg College 1916. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Director of Physical Culture at Muhlenberg College 1919. If you have ever noted about the campus a group of dejected physical wrecks with chests caving in and tongues hanging out, you can be sure that they are the result of the physical torture given by this puny youth. A few years ago the students regarded physical culture as a joke, but under “Bill’s” efficient guidance it has become a tragedy to the student, but the joy of Bill’s life. When Mr. Ritter is not holding classes he can be found with other individuals of his “organ-eye-zation” in front of a little cigar store on Hamilton St. between Ninth and Tenth which rumor says Bill bought last year under an assumed name. During Bill’s career he was captain of both the football and basketball teams and is one of the best athletes Muhlenberg has developed. Page Twenty Luther J. Deck, A.B. Instructor in Mathematics and Physics. Born at Hamburg, Pa., February 7, 1899. Pre- pared at Hamburg High School. A. B. Muhlenberg College 1920. Graduate Work, University of Penn- sylvania 1921. Delta Theta. Elected Instructor in Mathematics and Physics at Muhlenberg College 1921. Mr. Deck is another of our alumni who has returned to teach in his Alma Mater. Last year he taught at Elizabeth College, a girls’ school, and he seems to have left there with regret. Mr. Deck is not married, but please give him time. While a student here at Muhlenberg, Luther was a “math shark”. He still is one and is trying to make us become the same, altho “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”. Luther did graduate work at the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania this summer and now is making the instruments in the Physics laboratory do their tricks, and trying to show the bright juniors the difference be- tween light and sound waves, but their heads seem to be insurmountable obstacles to both kinds of waves. We hope that Mr. Deck’s career at Muhl- enberg as a member of the faculty will be as pleasant as his student days, stories of which he loves to tell. John V. Shankweiler, B.S. Instructor in Biology. Born at Huff’s Church, Berks County, Pa., July 22, 1894. Keystone State Normal School. Taught at Mohnton High School. A. E. F. 79th Division. Phi Kappa Tau. B. S. Muhlenberg College 1921. Elect- ed Instructor in Biology 1921. Altho this is Mr. Shankweiler’s first year as an Instructor at Muhlenberg, he received his bachelor’s degree here. He has had teaching experience both before entering the army and when he had been discharged from it after seeing duty in France. He came to Muhlenberg to complete his edu- cation and was graduated in 1921. While at college John, as we knew him then, specialized in the natural sciences and is very well fitted to be Prof. Bailey’s assistant in biology and its kindred sciences. Since graduation he has married and is the baby benedick of the faculty. Now he motors from his home near Rittersville to school. While at college, John was a mem- ber of the basketball team, and took a deep interest in everything for which Muhlen- berg stands. As a member of the faculty we are sure that he will continue to be guided by the same principles which made him a g’raduate of whom Muhlenberg can be proud. Page Twenty-one Harold K. Marks, A.B. Instructor in Music. Born at Emaus, Pa., May 12, 1886. Prepared at Allentown High. A.B. Muhlenberg College 1907. Alpha Tau Omega. Studied Piano, Theory, and Composition under the direction of various musicians. Elected Instructor in Music at Muhlenberg College 1913. This man has a joke for every occasion. His good humor has enabled him to keep harmony (all kinds) among the tempera- mental musicians who belong to the Glee Club. Besides teaching several classes in the Interpretation of Music, Prof. Marks has charge of the Glee Club. Under his leader- ship the Club has become famous thruout the eastern part of Pennsylvania. Prof. Marks is also organist at St. John’s Lutheran Church and has developed one of of the best choirs in the City of Allentown. He takes a prominent part in all musical events and everything that will educate the public in regard to music. Muhlenberg does not realize the debt it owes to Prof. Marks, the director of the Glee Club, which advertises the college per- haps more than any other organization. Howard B. Kistler, B.S. Instructor in Chemistry. Born at Wetherhold, Pa., 1892. Prepared at Allen- town High School. B. S. Muhlenberg College 1915. Chemist J. T. Baker Chemical Company. Member of the American Chemical Society. Elected Instructor in Chemistry at Muhlenberg 1921. Another new face among our noble and honored faculty is Mr. Kistler. Mr. Kistler was elected to relieve Prof. Fasig of the laboratory work in chemistry. Mr. Kistler graduated from Muhlenberg in 1915 and since then has been engaged in the practical side of chemistry. Before coming to Muhlenberg he was employed by the J. T. Baker Chemical Company, one of the largest chemical manufacturers in the country. Besides ruling over the labora- tory, Mr. Kistler offers a course in Indust- rial Chemistry in which he teaches the com- mercial ways of manufacturing the various chemicals and explains the part that chem- istry p ' ays in modern industry. We wish Mr. Kistler continued success in the teaching profession and hope that the ties binding him to his Alma Mater will be closer with each passing year. Page Twenty-two Oscar F. Bernheim, A.B. Treasurer, Secretary, and Registrar. Born at Mt. Pleasant, N. C., November 16, 1868. Prepared at Academic Department of Muhlenberg College. A. B. Muhlenberg College 1892. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Treasurer and Registrar of Muhlenberg College 1907. Elected Secretary 1919. “Bernie” is the busiest man in the college. Besides being treasurer, secretary, and registrar he is the college printer and one of the leading lights in the Athletic Asso- ciation. He is also proprietor, chief clerk, and cashier of the college store. Mr. Bern- heim is the boss of Rex and Koehler and one of his main worries is to keep these two worthies from falling asleep standing up. “Bernie” is a Democrat because he swam in the same swimming hole as Woodrow Wilson. He can trace the Democratic party back to the days before the flood. He is such a stron g Democrat that he believes in William Jennings Bryan’s theories of the origin of man. Mr. Bernheim is a indefatiguable worker for the college, and is persistent in prying the sheckels from our alumni. Guerney F. Afflerbaeh, M.S. Field Secretary Born at Bedminster, Bucks County, Pa., November 29, 1891. Prepared at Quakertown High School and Williamson Trade School. Ph. B. Muhlenberg Col- lege 1916. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Instructor in the Department of Natural and Applied Science 1917. M. S. Muhlenberg College 1919. Elected Field Secretary 1921. Guerney is both Field Secretary and Graduate Manager of Athletics. The posi- tion of Field Secretary is a comparatively new one and Mr. Afflerbaeh is the first man to occupy it. He travels to various meet- ings and makes speeches for money and students for Muhlenberg. He has accom- plished a great deal in the short time he has held the office. As Graduate Manager of Athletics Guerney has seen Muhlenberg rise in sports until the past season has seen Muhlenberg’s football team ranked seventh among the teams of the East. He works unceasingly to bring Muhlenberg to a position far above all other colleges of its size. Besides the above manifold duties Guerney is Bernie’s chief assistant. He is the boss when Bernie is not around. Be- tween Bernie and Guerney any alumus who shows his face has a difficult time getting away without having his pocketbook dented. Page Twenty-three Professor Preston Albert Barba, A.M„, Ph.D. Professor-Elect of German Professor P. A. Barba, now Professor at Heidelberg University, Tiffin, Ohio, has recently been elected to take charge of the German department at Muhlenberg next year. Prof. Barba prepared at Allentown High School and was graduated from Muh ' en- berg in 1906. He received his Master of Arts degree at Yale in 1907. In 1911 he received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. He also was presented with a Research Fellowship and studied in these German universi- ties: Gottingen, Heidelberg, and University of Berlin. He was a lecturer in the University of Chicago, assistant in German at the University of Pennsylvania, and professor of German in West Maryland College. Prof. Barba has published a number of books, one on the “Emmigration of Americans reflected in German Fiction” and “The Life and Work of Frederick Strubberg.” He is now at work in preparing an anthology of German verse in collabor- ation with Prof. Vos of the University of Indiana. Prof. Barba is a teacher and scholar of the highest type. While at college he excelled in track, took leading roles in dramatic presentations, was pianist of the Glee Club, artist of the 1906 CIARLA, and Editor of the MUHLENBERG. Rev. Charles Professor-Elect of Sociology, One of the most recent announcements made by Dr. J. A. W. Haas in regard to next year’s work is the election of Prof. C. B. Bowman to teach Economics, Sociology, and Business Administration. This announcement is one which has been received with joy on the part of all the students at Muhlenberg and will be a step toward a greater Muhlenberg. Prof. Bowman is well qualified to teach these subjects and comes to us highly recommended. He received his A.B. degree from North Western College in 1896, his A.B. degree from Drew Theological Seminary in 1900, and his A.M. from North Western College in 1903. In addition to these degrees, Prof. Bowman took summer work at the University of Wisconsin in 1916 and at the University of Chi cago in 1912 and 1914. He will also take work at the University of Pittsburgh during the coming summer. At present, Prof. Bowman is pastor of the Zion Evangelical Church of Pittsburgh and has been teaching Economics and Sociology at North Western College, Napierville, Illinois. We wish our new professor much success in his work here. B. Bowman, A.M., B.D. Economics, and Business Administration Page Twenty-four ?

HE story of Muhlenberg College for this year is again a record of steady, constructive advance. There has been an increase in the student body which amounted to 7.3%. In the extension courses that are now being carried on, the increase runs the total number of attendance over 500. The work of the Summer school was very success- ful in the offering of additional courses and in the attendance which rose to 271. There has been an advance in the work of the department of romance languages, which will give full value to these languages. The work in physics is being put on a strong foundation. Progress is to be noted in all other departments. But our main interest is with the plans of the future. Next year there will be a distinct division by which the German department will be given to one Professor, and the religion department to another. For the work in German, Professor Preston Barba of Heidelberg University, Tiffin, O., has been secured. Professor Barba is a scholar of the first rank, and an authority in Germanics. With his coming all our work in the modern languages will be of the highest rank. Professor Fritsch will devote his time to the development of the department of religion in such a way that its work will be superior in content to that of many institutions, while at the same time it will be sound in position and point of view. The college Page Twenty-eight is contemplating the calling of a man for the department of Economics and Sociology. The hope is that there also may be offered certain courses in Business Management, and Business Administration. The plan of providing a Model school for those who are preparing to teach is also under discussion, and the expectation is that our equipment and work for those who are about to teach will be of the highest type in efficiency and ready to meet every demand of the State Department of Education. The college is constantly gaining greater hold upon the community and throughout the State, because of the public lectures and addresses which are given by the Professors. Constantly, the building progrem which must be entered upon as soon as conditions warrant is being formulated. The conception of what is needed is clearly before the Trustees- The present task is the study of what type of building will meet the immediate demand, and in what way the foundations can be laid for the future by the erection of buildings that are entirely worthy of our whole scheme. As soon as financial conditions warrant the actual work of securing funds will be definitely planned. The minimum amount to be raised will be $500,000, but the actual call will run to $700,000. The different sections interested in the work of the college are being informed and the cultivation of the ideas of what the college must have is constantly being presented to the Ministerium of Pennsyl- vania.

It eclipsed all former college days and showed plainly the progress which Muhlenberg College has made in the last few years. It was a beautiful day and the campus was at its prettiest. In the morning the exercises were held in the College Chapel. Dr. Haas presided and opened the meeting by the reading of the Twenty-third Psalm. He then introduced the speaker of the day, Hon. J. Hampton Moore, Mayor of the City of Philadelphia. He spoke of American ideals and the place of the small college in teaching true American citizenship. He also spoke of the work being accomplished in Philadelphia in making good citizens of the large number of foreigners. Dinner was served in the Commons by the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the College immediately after the end of the exercises in the chapel. It had been planned to hold the afternoon speeches in front of the Adminis- tration Building but owing to a high wind they were held in the lobby. The first speaker was the Rev. John F. Nicholas, who spoke on “Religious Education” and the place that Muhlenberg occupies in the Lutheran church. The last speaker on the afternoon program was Rev. Harry K. Lantz of Shiremanstown who spoke for the alumni. Another attraction of the afternoon was the Annual Freshman- Sophomore Football game. The victory this year went to the Sophomores by the score of 28 to 0. Page Thirty-eight Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest Ursinus College, Collegeville, Pa.

Snyder Page Thirty-nine Extension Department B ' |HE winter session of the Extension Division of Muhlenberg College, j has been the most successful since its inception. During the Year of 1920-21 there was a registration of two-hundred fifty-five; and this year, 1921-22, it has been increased to the number of five hundred sixteen. Thru the teachers who are taking work in the Muhlenberg Extension Division, the College is able to reach, indirectly, over fifteen thousand school children. There are two extra-murial classes. The one at Hazleton, Pa., which has an enrollment of sixty nine, conducted by Dr. Wright, and one at Hellertown, Pa., numbering eleven, conducted by Mr. C. W. Boyer. Many requests have been received to establish similar courses in different places, but it has been impossible to do so, because of the lack of assistants. Sixteen students of this department will receive their degrees from Muhlenberg this year, most of them being in the Philosophical Course. It may be interesting to note that during the sessions of last summer, the work given in Supervised Study, by Miss Graham of Rochester, N. Y., was the only work of its kind given in the entire state of Pennsylvania. Muhlenberg has been able to secure Miss Graham for this coming summer session. During the winter session several additions were made to the Ex- tension Division faculty, which were not previously listed. Among them might be noted Prof. C. F. Seidel, Supervisor of the Junior High Schools in Allentown. If the summer session of this year shows a one hundred per cent increase in enrollment, as it showed last year, the College will not be able to take care of all the students within its halls. If Muhlenberg is to meet its full responsibility, the new Library and Science buildings are without a doubt, imperative. The administration of the Extension Division is under the efficient guidance of Dr. Isaac Miles Wright.

Page Forty-six THE SENIOR CLASS Senior History E are not as other men ; we are Seniors. Around us revolve the planets and the lesser stars. Beneath our superior eyes, kingdoms rise and fall, peoples survive and perish, beasts and birds, moun- tains and streams, all things earthly fluctuate in fitful cycles. Our view is unlimited. We look back to the time when we were freshmen, and a bit beyond that to the t ; me when our ancestors played tag in the tree-tops along with Billy Bryan’s ancestors. We look forward to tomorrow, when we graduate. We will plant the ivy, and realize that those coming years when the vistas of matrimony lie open are before us. We see ourselves completing further academic preparation, and turning to serve the world which will bow before us with offerings of gold and incense. We can look beyond that, to the time when Muhlenberg will have gained in the large what she now has in miniature. Farther on, we can see in the eye of the mind the remarkable developments in every walk of life that will startle the world as we, the Senior Class, begin to take our rightful places in mundane affairs. We confess it is with difficulty that we limit ourselves to the small period embraced within this history. We must begin where our pen was laid down a year ago, and tell of the happenings of the intervening twelve- month. First and foremost of the historical events of which we treat was the publication of our book, the 1922 CIARLA, like unto which there is none. Five books in one binding, revealing respectively the college, the classes, the athletics, the activities, and the et ceteras of our Junior year, illustrat- ed thruout in the most complete manner: this was our contribution to the shelf of CIARLAS. It remains a testimony to the co-operation of the whole class, working successfully for the creation of a book representative of the class and of the college. Along came commencement week, ushered in with sunshine, white flannels, and favorite feminine friends decorating the campus. The diplo- mas were awarded, and we, no longer Juniors, entered upon the best part of our lives, a period that neither the past nor the future could duplicate. Seniors! At the high school the word meant something, — here it meant everything. The whole history of the college was only a step toward bringing us to our Seniority, and we realized that for the year the best efforts of the faculty would be centered upon us. Muhlenberg college, at our service. Only Crusoe on his island could feel a more absolute sovereignty over everything in sight. With infinite delight we looked toward the year before us. Forty-seven Senior History (continued) During the summer our ranks were depleted by the death of a favorite classmate. Raymond Snyder was not only a football captain and capable student, but also a good friend to have. We mourn his absence. With the return to academic halls and the daily schedule of recitations in fall, there came upon Muhlenberg such a spirit of football as the most eulogistic historian of previous seasons could not predict. What a wonder- ful year for us, this Senior year of ours. Never again will a Muhlenberg Senior be able to take his favorite flapper to the Taylor Stadium, to have her see Muhlenberg beat Lehigh for the first time. We were there. We helped to build the bonfire, and poured the very oil that flamed to celebrate that victory. How exultant we were. The football season culminated in the never to be forgotten banquet ; then basketball vied with studies for attention. We followed with pleasure the gradual welding of the team into a unit carrying victory before it. Soon we had passed our last mid-year exams, and selected our officers to serve thru commencement week, and on beyond graduation. At this history is being written, our high hearted plans are being completed for the best Senior week that Muhlenberg will ever witness. This will complete our written history. Were one of us to gather ten or twenty years hence a history of our various pursuits and triumphs, the documents would have a notability that this cramped writing can only hint at.

RUPP Treasurer GOMER S. REES rjam E ALL shall remember our first impression at Muhlenberg. W L Having screwed up our courage and determination to a degree fitting the enormity of the situation, we found ourselves agree- ably surprised and relieved at the royal reception tendered us. We felt at home at once. Details which we had long feared and dreamed of in violent nightmares disappeared as vapor. And we went to bed (if we were so fortunate as to have one) secure in the behalf that all difficulties had been disposed of. Had we not bought our radiators, our chapel seats, text-books for the following four years and all the other essentials of a full-fledged college student? We had! And we slept easy — that night at least. What we could not understand was the sudden change manifested in the first chapel service, when threatening shouts of “down Frosh” and the like belied the cordial reception of the previous day. But in the rush to get caps, socks and neckties we overlooked these things for the moment. We came back to earth long enough to organize the class and elect our officers. After smearing our new enemies, the Sophs, in the pole fight, we were in turn smeared by them in the banner rush which we lost. Page Sixty-one Freshman Year Second Semester President IRA S. FRITZ Vice President WILLIAM F. MOSSER Secretary RUSSELL W. ARMBRUSTER Treasurer RICHARD C. LUTZ Our football team found little inspiration in the great faith we had in them and bit the dust after a gory conflict. We decided that the back door was after all not so bad and vowed vengeance in the future. As if they were not satisfied and wanted to rub it in, the Sophomores enjoyed a successful stunt day. Arnica and court plaster were in order. It was a joyful affair. After becoming somewhat acclimated to things in general, we decided after much whispering, to hold a banquet. Both Freshmen and Sophomores were notified and in due time the former gathered at the Hotel Traylor. Determined outposts were placed around the building to insure safety. From what, we knew not. But we had not reckoned with our well-meaning friends, the Soph- omores. They seemed to realize the situation. Knowing that we in our inexperience would not be able to land the necessary spirits they deter- mined to help us out. After much thot and labor on their part, they hit upon a plan. They removed our beds and other incidentals from our rooms and put what remained in a topsy-turvy condition. They then retired to wait. The result of our suddenly coming upon such turbulent scenes was as they had expected. We were well nigh intoxicated, at least from the symptoms of convulsions shown. Thus the banquet was a supreme success and we afterward humbly thanked the Sophs for helping to make it so. We were privileged later to return the favor. While these things were going on, other members of our class were making names for themselves and for Muhlenberg on the football field and in other activities. Page Sixty-two Sophomore Year First Semester President GEORGE B. BALMER Vice President RICHARD C. LUTZ Secretary CARL A. CASSONE Treasurer ROBERT K. MILLER Monitor RUSSELL W. PARK After the mid-years we returned to college with depleted ranks. Some of us had decided to enter other fields of endeavor but the rest determined to make up for lost numbers (!). We regained spirit long enough to win the basketball series and the inter-class track meet. This somewhat made up for past misfortunes and irritated the Sophomores beyond expression. We were also represented on the varsity in these sports. By the time spring had arrived we had branched out socially and we held our first annual spring dance, the first class dance that had been held at Muhlenberg in many years. Among the other things we ex- perienced were the Muhlenberg campaign and a Y. M. C. A. convention. On the whole we felt as if the year had been a very satisfactory one and looked forward to better things in the future. We returned to school next fall in a superior role. We were now among the elite and did our full share in welcoming the newcomers as others had welcomed us before. Those were the joyful days of blistered hands and well-filled pocket-books. The Freshmen however seemed to recuperate quickly, and we were defeated in the fight and the banner rush. The last named affair is one of the outstanding features of our lives. It was likewise the last real banner rush to be held at Muhlenberg. Both sides covered themselves with glory — and other things. Howerever we secured ample and satisfactory revenge on stunt day. It was again a joyful affair. Page Sixty-three Sophomore Year Second Semester President HORACE S. MANN Vice President STIRLING C. SCHMOYER Secretary HAROLD J. SOTTER Treasurer ROBERT K. MILLER Monitor IRA F. ZARTMAN The banquet was a howling success. During our absence however, some criminals residing at Muhlenberg prompted the Freshmen to das- tardly deeds. Resenting this as an afront to our honor and position we routed them from their beds in the cold of night and reversed the tables (!). They partly avoided us later by cowardly holding their banquet dur- ing Easter vacation but, nothing daunted, a squad of town students invaded their lairs and upheld the honor of the class and the traditions of the college. Fully two barrels of screws were collected. In other lines of endeavor ’23 again did her full share. Among other things a Calendar was devised and published. This is a taboo subject. The year as a whole was again a satisfactory one and all of us now turned our attentions to the CIARLA. Again we returned. Some responsibilities were now over, but others were added. As upper classmen we determined to make the year a success. We found ourselves suddenly immersed in a great football season and were gratified to know that the outstanding stars were Juniors. We counted ourselves particularly fortunate to witness the dismal disgrace of Lehigh. Then came another event of some importance. Putting aside for the time being our garb of industry and determination, we adjourned to Wescoesville for “Der Junior Ausflug.” The event was preceded by mysterious and clandestine occurrences of which little can be said or written. The night showed signs of rain. However someone suggested Page Sixty-four Junior Year First Semester President IRA F. ZARTMAN Vice President HORACE T. SCHULER Secretary PAUL F.

Balmer Class Flower Blue Iris Class Colors Blue and White Class Motto “Facta magis quam verba.” that possibly the moisture was due to internal rather than to external saturation. The suggestion was hooted down as being Satanical. Be that as it may. We arrived in good spirits and founds eats and programs. The former we disposed of and the latter we saved lest the real incidents of the affair would not lend themselves later to the exigencies of the polite arts of conversation. Unusually early in the evening, we dispersed. We were thankful that a large truck had been procured and blessed the foresight that made our return possible. We subsequently arrived (ac- cording to all reports) midst much confusion and retired to our rooms despite the sporadic outbursts on the part of those who wished to do otherwise. The next day found a feeling of tense solemnity pervading the campus. After this diversion we settled down to making the Ciarla the best of its kind. This bids fair to he accomplished. If this is so we shall feel that our Junior year has been our best and that we have laid a firm foundation for our last and most important year at Muhlenberg.

Gentles, do not reprehend.’ I’age Sixty-six Henry Fryer Alderfer 31 Chestnut St. Souderton, Penna. “I am not handsome hut I have distinguished looks.” F IRST we have Souderton’s most noble contribution to Muhlenberg. This noble youth, since he has been desig- nated as such, hails indeed from this land of hills and valleys. We are not ac- quainted with this burg’s social condi- tions but we do know that the girls there have nothing on the weaker sex in Allen- town. Else why does Henry migrate to Allentown every week or so during vaca- tion time ? He says that he has import- ant business to transact here, but we are nevertheless anxious to know why the business can not be carried on on days other than Sunday and why the services of a stenographer are so constantly needed. Ask Henry, he knows. In class he holds his own, particularly in the chemistry lab. We eagerly await the day when he shall return to his Alma Mater in the guise of professor and make tests easy for the struggling and oppressed at Muhlenberg. He has been detected at Mealey’s and is also a devotee of “full houses” and such. We are not an authority on his ambitions but we feel sure that he will make good in some line or other. H ENRY first saw the light of day November 10, 1902 at Souder- ton. After graduating from the Souderton High School, he entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He intends to prepare himself for the teaching profession and is specializ- ing in chemistry. At Muhlenberg he has been active in class athletics. In his Freshman year he was a member of the class track and tennis teams, in his Sophomore year football, tennis, track and basketball teams and in his Junior year he played for the Pagans in football and was out for basketball. He is a member of the Bucks County club. He is a Lutheran and in politics an Independent. “ALLIE” Page Sixty-seven John Allison Baker 143 Chestnut Street Allentown, Penna. ‘ ‘ The Flower of the family. ’ ’ J OHN was born in Allentown, September 12, 1900. He was edu- cated in the public schools of Allentown and entered Muhlenberg College in the fall of 1919. He is an A.B. man and intends to take up the ministry. He has. been prominent in class athletics. In his Freshman year he was on the tennis and foot- ball teams; the Sophomore year saw him out for basketball and baseball, and in his Junior year he proved a mainstay in basketball and football. He is an associate editor of the CIARLA and has charge of the book of Athletics. John is a Lutheran. He votes the Democratic ticket. J OHN hails from the lower end of the city where he is quite a celebrity in more ways than one. Early in his career he bpcame affiliated with the Queen City A. A. and at present is manager of both Baseball and Basket- ball. He plays on both these teams and like his namesake was one of the leading home run hitters in the league last year. He continued his athletic prowess in inter-class activities at Muhlenberg. Strange to say Baker’s dad is a flowerist and Johnnie can often be seen down in the hot house pulling strings or empty- ing beds. He possesses a dough-ty spirit. He says that he owes this trait to his study and love of Napoleon. Among the ladies John is a bashful boy and no dis- turbing rumors have reached us of his love affairs. He will undoubtedly be- come a staid minister. He is quite an arguer (debator being too dignified a term in this instance). He will argue anything as long as he is on the side of the underdog. Oh! and ONE thing more, John is no friend of Volstead. He seldom loses his temper but one mention of Prohibition will never fail to set him off on a rampage. He has wasted more time hunting up material against this cause than the reformers have in passing the law. “JOHNNIE” Page Sixty-eight George Beidler Balmer 107 Windsor Street Reading, Penna. “A little learning is a dangerous thing.’’ L ADIES and gentlemen, allow us to introduce the only unkissed hero in the class. As he is the exact replica of Napoleon in stature, “Kink” nurses to his bosom the desire to become President of the United States, Speaker of the House, and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. He is trying to gain experience by discussing with anyone who will listen questions that wise men have gone nutty over. Any afternoon when the weather is fine he can be seen — and heard — arguing problems of stu- dent administration with Doctor Haas. He reports that he invariably returns with the laurels. Due to the unceasing watchfulness of his roomie, Knauss, “Kink” has never fallen in love. Whenever he wanders down Hamilton Street, he is surrounded by a bodyguard who carefully steer him away from the flattering eyes of women. But we tremble for him when his friends can no longer guard him from the insid- ious wiles of the female, for we have visions of him twenty years hence as a wise, learned, distinguished, but hen- pecked member of the bar. G EORGE entered the world Feb- ruary 8, 1902. He was educated in the public schools of Reading and entered Muhlenberg from Read- ing Boys’ High in the fall of 1919. He is enrolled in the Ph.B. course and intends to study law, getting much of his experience by his work on Student Council. In his Freshman year George was on the honor roll. He was elected class historian and entered the A. T. 0. fraternity. He was the manager of the class tennis team in this year and a member of the team. In his Sophomore year he continued on the honor roll. He was class president the first semester, manager of the class basketball team, and a member of the class tennis team. As a Junior he became very active. He is a Junior representative to the A. A., manager of the varsity tennis team, and associate editor of the CIARLA, having charge of the book of the College. He is a member of the Berks County Club and of the Chess and Press Clubs. George is a Luth- eran and is suspected of being a Republican. Page Sixty-nine Luther Augustus Bennyhoff itreet East Mauch Chunk, Penna. ‘ ‘ He ’ll lead a single, pensive, private life. ’ ’ 901 North L UTHER was born November 2, 1901, at East Mauch Chunk. He was educated in the public schools of that place and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He enrolled in the A.B. course and in- tends to take up music as a career. He was quite reserved as a Freshman and attracted little attention except among his classmates. However he made quite a reputation for himself as a musician so that in his Sopho- more year he made the Glee Club. He likewise emerged for the class track meet in the spring of this year and took second place in one of the hurdles. In his Junior year he again was on the Glee Club this time as the accompanist and leader. He took part in the Pagan-Minister football game and is Art Editor of the CIARLA. Luther is a Lutheran. He favors the Republican party. B ENNYHOFF comes from the Switz- erland of America. For this reason we can understand why he leads the Glee Club and is art director of the CIARLA. He came to Muhlenberg filled with parental advice and is one of the few youths, sad to say, who has not fallen into the snares and pit-falls of the wicked city. Lately, however, we note a slight change for the better. ’Tis said that a young lady from Catasauqua has captured his attentions. Judging from other reports from Glee Club mem- bers, Luther shows strange symptoms indeed. One of his pet pastimes is to relate his experiences on the Glee Club trips to the less fortunate inmates of the first floor of East Berks. Luther is athletically inclined towards tennis . After much and prolonged pleading on the part of his friends, Luther decided to try out for the min- ister football team. Needless to say, he distinguished himself in the subsequent battle. We always knew he did have it in him. “BENNY” Page Seventy Carl Wright Boyer Keystone State Normal School Kutztown, Penna. B ETTER late than never. We had already finished our second lap when Doc decided the time was ap- propriate and propitious to make his debut among the Junior ranks. He did and the result was that the class has a remarkable addition in more ways than one. The usual proceedure in a write-up is to say as little of the truth as you know about a man. In other words if a man is a good student you politely inform the “dear readers” that he is not. There- fore with a pre-acknowledgement of our mendacity, we say that Doc is not a good student; he never applies himself; he takes no interest in his work nor does he ever turn it in on time. In addition to these faults, he has one other and that is that he has set and fixed ideas about certain subjects, particularly in information he acquired while visiting Vladivostock and which he will discuss with you with all the fervor of a prose- lyte. College is intended to discipline a man intellectually if it can, and also socially. For the latter, no credits are given con- trary to the old adage, “Credit where credit is due”. No one is discouraged by this however and least of all Doc. He was quite developed when he came here and since then has improved consider- ably. His interests are variegated and scattered to some extent but they chiefly center on Bethlehem. The least said of this the better. C ARL was born at Mt. Carmel, Pa., November 26, 1897. He entered Keystone State Normal School in 1916 and took extension and summer work at Muhlenberg in 1920- 1921. He entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1921 as a Junior A.B. man and will probably enter the ministry. He is a member of Phi Kappa Tau frat- ernity. At Muhlenberg he has shown some ability. He is Secretary and Treasurer of the Press Club. He is manager of the ’23 basketball team and played class football with the Ministers. At present he is the class secretary. War Record — Enlisted U. S. Army February, 1918 and from September, 1918 to November, 1919, was a mem- ber of the A. E. F. in Siberia. He has toured the Orient.

He enrolled in the A. B. course at Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919 and intends to become a minister of the Lutheran church. Charles was a mainstay of class athletics from the start, being on the class basketball and baseball teams for the three years. In his Junior year he likewise took part in the Pagan-Minister foot- ball game. He is an associate editor of the CIARLA in charge of the Book of Features. Charles is one of the few Democrats in the school. Stroudsburg, Penna. can creep as well as soar. ’ ’ O UR friend “Steve” is just an ord- inary mortal like the rest of us but with a propensity for long- vacations. He is quiet and unobtrusive, never interferes with anyone, but is always on hand when needed. He ap- preciates a good joke and often is at the bottom of something “practical”. The class of 1923 would never have shown up in class athletics if Charlie hadn’t been there to help out in basket- ball and track. He also upheld the wav- ering Ministers in their annual struggle with the Pagans. “Steve” is supposed to be a shoe sales- man, but he says he would prefer to work in the ladies’ department although he has gained his experience elsewhere. Yes, “Brodie” is guilty of being ac- quainted with a few members of the fair sex. Because of his regular, mysteries trips downtown, we are inclined to re- gard him with suspicion. But one may as well try to p-’mp the ocean dry as to get a “line” on the object of these trips. “All kidding aside”, gentle reader, “Steve” has the quality of “stick-to-it- iveness” in him which causes him to work hard enough to conquer anything he attempts. All he needs to bring him success in his life-work is a good part- ner. “STEVE” Page Seventy-twa Carl Anthony Cassone 110 N. Penn Street Allentown, Penna. “On v ' ith the Dance!’’ C ARL was born in Allentown on May 7, 1902. He was educated in the public schools of Allen- town, entering Muhlenberg from Allentown High in the fall of 1919. He is enrolled in the Ph.B. course and intends to take up law. As a Freshman he was president of the Athenian Debating Society. In his Sophomore year he was secretary of the class for the first semester and also the Assistant Business Manager of the 1921 calendar. In his Junior year he is Associate Editor of the CIARLA having charge of the Book of Biographies. He has been a mem- ber of the A. H. S., Sandwich and Chess Clubs. He is Catholic and votes the Republican ticket. T HE cheery face of this medium-sized, smoothly-combed youth may “pop” into any room of the dorms at any hour, day or night, even though he is a day student. It brings with it a breath of sunshine that dispels gloom. That is why he is welcome wherever he goes. “Cass” has two chief indoor sports: dancing and chess. If any girl is des- cribed to this devotee of the Jazzland Five, the first question he asks is: “Is she a good dancer?” If the answer is in the negative, there are no more questions asked and that girl has no chance with “Cass.” Carl spends a large part of his “spare” time in pondering over a chess board. Although he has never studied the theory of the game, Carl’s first and foremost ambition is to be the chess champion of Allentown. We are of the opinion that this is his only ambition that will shortly be realized. “Cass” is very enthusiastic about class activities and it is chiefly through his efforts that we expect this section of the book to be perfection itself. His second greates t ambition is to be a lawyer. If we judge from the “line” that he handed out as a brush salesman, he will be a roaring success. Page Seventy-three Jay Birney Crum 1813 Park Avenue Alton, 111. I F there was ever a hero that outshone Crum, we have yet to hear of him. This youth made Muhlenberg’s foot- ball opponents look like parlor parcheesi players. Crum throws a forward with the accuracy and the speed of an Amer- ean battery shelling a Hun submarine. In the Lehigh game, he had so much time to throw the ball that the referee wanted to penalize him for delaying the game. He wore two left shoes in that game and we attribute our victory to that fact. Birney said he would deal with us if we put this in his write up so we expect to be absent from college for some time in the future. However, even if he does come from the west, he is no wild man. In fact he is a regular Apollo, especially on the dance floor. One of his pet indoor sports is playing the guitar and he usually attracts a large audience. Outside of all this he is quite a student and shines especially in logic class. Crum aspires to be an athletic coach and, after he has risen to the heights of All-American quarter back, we expect to find him in the top ranks. B IRNEY was born at St. Louis, Missouri, March 28, 1899. He prepared at Palmyra High School, 111., and entered Muhlenberg as a Junior in the fall of 1921. He was the star of the football team holding down the quarterback posi- tion, and won his letter in basketball altho handicapped by sickness. Birney is a likely looking catcher and will in all probability make the baseball team. At Muhlenberg he is enrolled as a Ph.B. and intends to become an athletic coach. He is one of the Four Horsemen and is a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. Birney favors the Republicans. ‘VIRTUE” Page Seventy-four Ira Samuel Fritz 504 S. Queen Street Lancaster, Penna. “Old wood to burn, old ‘ ‘ Old wine to drink, old I RA was born at Lancaster on March 25, 1894. He prepared at Lancaster High and at Allen- town Prep. School and entered Muhl- enberg in September, 1919. As a Freshman he was very active. He was elected class president and played class tennis. In his Sophomore year he was on the honor group and was editor-in-chief of the Sophomore Cal- endar. This year he is Editor-in- chief of the CIARLA, a member of Student Council, on the Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, and Junior representative to the I. 0. U. He was student com- mander of the R. 0. T. C. and possesses a fine war record. Ira is enrolled in the A.

He is a Lutheran and votes the Indepen- dent ticket. books to read; friends to converse with.’’ W HEN you see an important-look- ing individual with a soldierly bearing hustling about the cam- pus and filling the bulletin boards with notices which bear his signature, you are beholding Ira S. Fritz. He has a high forehead, denoting intellect, and his eyes are clear though obscured by a pair of sight-savers. Fritz is deeply interested in religious work of all kinds and is usually the leading figure. He is especially well- known on the campus because he has been assigned the duty of keeping the criminal record and of overseeing chapel attendance. The “Captain” has not been known to pay more than passing attention to Al- lentown girls although we are positive that there is “someone” who does claim his attentions. The class elected him Editor-in-Chief of the Ciarla because someone had to fill this office but they will be surprised when they see the way in which he has done his work. He is so deliberate and accurate in all that he does that we know each attempt must spell success. “CAPTAIN” Page Seventy-five George Reynold Holstrom 1139 Maple Avenue Superior, Wis. “Of their own merits modest men are dumb.’’ G EORGE was born at Superior, Wis., April 27, 1898. He pre- pared at Superior Normal School and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1921. He at once distinguish- ed himself in football and was an “M” man in that sport. He won an “M” in basketball and is out for baseball with all prospects for a third “M”. He is Captain-elect of the football team and the best end in Pennsyl- vania. George is enrolled in the B. S. course and desires to become an athletic coach. He is a member of the A. T. 0. Fraternity and of the Four Horsemen, Western, and P. L. Clubs. He is a Lutheran. George is likewise a Republican. I T was a great day for Muhlenberg when George “Honor” Holstrom de- cided to abandon the Badger State and come east for further exposure to higher learning. George brought with him his great athletic prowess which was fostered by his ability to ride bron- cos and rope cows in the far west. He does most proudly claim that all the ability which he possesses is inherited from the “ski-jumping, snuz-chewing”, Swedish race of which he is a descendent. George bears the distinction of being the only man on Muhlenberg’s great football team to be placed on Coach Spiegel’s All-American. He was on the receiving end of the great Crum-to-Hol- strom combination, one of the best in Eastern football circles, being stationed at the left wing. It seemed to many who marveled at his ability to grab ’em in mid-air that he did have wings, but we who know him will say that he does not in any sense of the word. Tho entering Muhlenberg last year as a Junior, George has already won for himself great popularity and many friends. He is our next year’s football captain and we are confident that he will pilot a winning team. He is the shining light on our basketball team, but it is baseball that is his real game. He was recently elected captain of the 1922 baseball team. “Honor,” so nick- named by the horsemen takes kindly to the caresses of the fair Dutch maidens of Allentown and we fear that his mind will be crushed in the rush even tho he does have a good reputation as a diligent and arduous student. “HONOR” Page Seventy-six Ernest Theodore Johnson 570 W. 5th Street Superior, Wis. “Good roads lead to good towns; dark roads to good times.’’ E RNEST was born at Superior, Wis., November 1, 1898. He pre- pared at Superior Normal and came to Muhlenberg in the fall of 1921. He became at once prominent on the football squad and were it not for an injury would have been an “M” man. He was one of the main- stays of the basketball team altho he was not an obtrusive player and few recognized that it was his speed and coolness that paved the way for most of Muhlenberg’s baske ' .s. Re- cently he was elected captain of the 1922-23 Basketball team. He is a very fast man in track and wi l in all likelihood hold down third base on the nine. Ernest is a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and one of the Four Horsemen. He is enrolled in the Ph. B. course and in- tends to take up law. He is a Luth- eran and votes the Republican ticket. I N Ernie, more popularly known as “Purity”, the real reason being so named withheld, we have a student of the West coming East in an effort to learn the intricate whys and wherefores of the Dutch Fraulines. So far however, Emaus has proven a stumbling block in his career, as it was a case of being hit hard and low at first sight and never quite fully recovering his former poise. When “Johnson on the telephone” is heard, the “Three Horsemen” immed- iately set about getting Ernie’s toilet ready for the call means a sure trip to Emaus. Ernie has made a wonderful reputa- tion in athletics during his short career at Muhlenberg. He is not only one of the fastest and cleverest men on the football team, but also carries these at- tributes to the basketball court. All who have witnessed him in the past year were ' impressed with his speed and cun- ning. He is the captain-elect of next year’s basketball team. That he has proven and will continue to prove a big asset to “Muhlenberg” is saying it mildly. Next season he should prove one of the best “backs” Muhlenberg has ever had. “PURITY” Page Seventy-seven Calvin Auburn Knauss 1108 Fullerton Avenue “ One I love, two I love, C ALVIN was born at Allentown on Sept. 15, 1899. He prepared at Bethlehem Prep, and entered Muhlenberg in 1919. He is enrolled in the B. S. course and intends to be- come a research chemist. In his Freshman year at Muhlenberg, he was a member of the Knutte club, and was on the class football team. He was a track man for the first two years, assistant cheer leader in his Junior year and has scrubbed for football. He is a member of the Pan-Hellenic Council, being an Alpha Tau Omega man and likewise belongs to the B. P. S. Club. He is a member of the Reformed church and is a Republican. Allentown, Pa. three 1 love, I say. ’ ’ I NTRODUCING Mr. Knauss, of the firm of Knauss, Balmer, and Fasig. Just at present, “Cal’s” greatest ob- ject in life is the education of Balmer. He believes that to spare the rod is to spoil the child and he acts accordingly. “Cal” is a man of aspirations. He once aspired to become an operatic star but after a conference with his friends he decided to become a veterinarian. It seems that the Fates are against him for the farmers are buying tractors and Fords. About two summers ago “Cal” had a job selling “pony pictures.” “Cal” didn’t like the idea of filching the filthy lucre from the merry housewife but he fell in love with the ponies. Hence his love for all horseflesh. “Cal” is very reticent about his love- affairs. But we have our suspicions of him for almost every week-end he goes to Stroudsburg and comes back with a far away look in his eyes. “CAL” Page Seventy-eight J. Walter Koch 1802 Turner Street Allentown, Pa. “He had sighed to many though he loved but one.’’ B EHOLD that model exterior; how carefully he brushes back his hair; those eyes; how neatly he ties his ties; how loudly they shreik’at you. Do you know that this same J. Walter is the leading exponent of lady killing in the school; which is some statement. To entertain his friends (afore hinted at) Walter has had to fight many a brother- ly duel with Herbert for possession of the car when dad wasn’t using it. Now that Herbert has gone to Philly, Kochie says there’s nothing like home sweet home. J. W. is a member of the Glee Club and an actor of no mean ability. He is adept at the light fantastic. But what we most admire about him is the ease and the gentlemanly grace with which he accomplishes — nothing. Yet we truthfully found him in this state only once and that was when he slipped on the floor at one of Miss Collier’s dancing classes. The least said of this the better. Seriously, tho, J. W. is a good student and a man of some integ- rity. He believes in a square deal. We expect great things from him. W ALTER was born at Allen- town, January 19, 1901. He was graduated from Allen- town High School in 1919 and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of the same year. He is enrolled in the B. S. course and intends to enter business. At Muhlenberg he has been out for class athletics, being a member of the football and tennis teams. He is one of the leading members of the Glee Club and he also takes part in the skit. He scrubbed football in his Junior year. He is a member of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity and of the A. H. S. Club. He is a Lutheran and votes the Democratic ticket. “WALTER” Page Seventy-nine Richard Charles Lutz 3848 N. 18th Street Philadelphia, Penna. “ Life’s a jest and all tilings show it; I thought so first, and now I know it.” R ICHARD was born in Philadel- phia, October 24, 1900. He was graduated from Northeast High School in 1919 and entered Muhlen- berg in the fall of the same year. In his Freshman year he was class treas- urer. He took part in inter-class foot- ball, baseball and basketball in his Sophomore year and was Business Manager of the Calendar. He was vice-president of the class this year. In his Junior year he continued his athletic work and was Assistant Bus- iness Manager of the WEEKLY, and Assistant Business Manager of the CIARLA. He intends to enter busi- ness. He is a member of the Luther- an church and votes the Republican ticket. I R ICHARD hails from the city of brotherly love or as it has been lately described the “city of beaut- iful cemeteries.” When but a boy he was often heard to remark that he would live and die in the beautiful surround- ings of his birthplace. To this vow he has added talking about Philadelphia. It is the most difficult thing imaginable to convince him that it is not the premier city of the universe. As a Freshman at Muhlenberg he was elected class treas- urer and to this early misfortune we at- tribute his subsequent pessimistic dis- position, most usually manifested in class meetings when talking of money matters. He is a born business man and has been manager of more things and pub- lications than can be recorded in the space of this volume. Yet he has time for much recreation. He shines at the football games when he imports Phila- de’phia blondes to occupy the same box with him. After a period of much lethargy, Dick lately awoke scholastically to startle the whole college with his wonderful recita- tions and quizz papers in Drama. The phenomena has not been explained. As could have been expected, he wants to enter business. Let us all pray for Wall Street when he starts to get in action. There is bound to be action and we are sure that Richard will not come off second best. “DICK” Page Eighty Horace Seiple Mann Bangor, Penna. “Best! Best! Shall I ■not have all eternity to rest in?” 453 Broadway H ORACE was born at Bangor on November 28, 1899. He was graduated from Bangor High in 1917 and came to Muh ' enberg in the fall of 1919. He enrolled in the A. B. course with the Lutheran min- istry as his intended life work. In his Freshman year he was in the honor group which position he has held since. He was class President his Sophomore year and Assistant Editor of the calendar. At present he is on the Student Council, is Assist- ant Editor-in-chief of the CIARLA, Y. M. C. A. Secretary, Associa’e Editor of the WEEKLY and a mem- ber of the Press Club. He took part in the Pagan-Minister game. He is a member of the Phi Epsilon Frater- nity. Horace votes Non-Partisan. T HIS gentleman of spirit hails from a spot on the map marked in very small print — Bangor. It is a little town, but judging from our friend as an example, they raise clean-lived, big- hearted fellows down Bangor way. At first, some of us did not learn to know him very intimately but when we broke thru the shell we found pure gold. Horace has had a varied career. He has wielded the ferule in the grades; he has been somewhat of a carpenter and a draftsman; he can prescribe for a sick stomach and make up the prescription; and of late he has scored a success as a shoe drummer. And to top it all he has consistently carried off honors in scho- lastic work. We don’t know where he is going to stop! And then the girls. He used to say that he hadn’t any time for them. But time has wrought a great change. For along about midyears his closest friends noted a great change in him and in his actions and attitude toward the life about him. We venture the prediction that he will soon be brought bound, a captif to the feet of the fair Aphrodite. On the whole he is a remarkably prac- tical fellow and a steady puller, but we wish he had more poetry in his soul. Not that we love him less. Far be it! But there is nothing like the appreciation of a love lyric as encouragement to a fellow seeking a likely wife for a minister. More POWER to you, Horse! -HORSE” Page Eighty-one John Godfrey Miller New Market, Va„ “He has a lean and hungry look, Such men are dangerous. ’ ’ J OHN was born at New Market February 13, 1903. He prepared at Shenandoah Lutheran Insti- tute and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He is enrolled in the A. B. course and intends to run his dad’s farm when he leaves Muhlen- berg. John is a staunch Democrat and a member of the Lutheran Church. At Muhlenberg he has been a loyal supporter of class activities and was a member of the class foot- ball team in his Sophomore and Jun- ior years. He is a member of the Knutte Club. A TALL, lanky youth with a look of determination in his eyes, a cheery voice, and the bearing of a true Southern gentleman can often be seen in some of the daily heated dis- cussions- of the campus. Since he re- turned to school last fall, “Virginia” uses as his main theme the story of his auto- mobile-camping trip to ’Frisco. This voluble youth, commonly known as “the Duke”, takes great pride in the fact that he is trying to put Virginia on the map. He “reckoned” his way through math- ematics and is attempting the same feat in logic. Because of his long legs, a great future as a track man has been predicted for “Johnny” but his atten- tions are devoted entirely to football and in his leisure hours he is engaged in debates with co-laborers or with fair damsels from Cedar Crest. “The Duke’s” great ambition is to manage a modern farm and we feel con- fident that he will be successful in this as well as in anything else he under- takes. “DUKE” Page Eighty-two Robert Keck Miller 2221 Chew Street Allentown, Penna. 1 Blessings on thee, little man. ' G ENTLE readers (male and female), Bobby is one of the babies of the class — in point of age. Judging from what he has done at Muhlenberg we could scarcely believe this fact, but Bobbie agrees that he is just one of the many who are examples of the old saying “small but mighty”. Besides mingling with the “ink and copy,” R. K. is afflict- ed with a pet Ford. He spends more time coaxing the thing to go than rid- ing in it, but that doesn’t faze him at all. Leave it to Bob, and he’ll make a tin lizzie run upside down on the sur- face of water without any gas in the engine. One thing that he is ticklish about is adverse criticism on the merits of this hobby. Let anyone cast a slur- ring remark on it, and R. K. is ready to start hostilities then and there. For this reason we pray the kind editor will not reveal our handle to the enraged Bobbie lest murder be commited. In his eyes there is nothing more precious than the old boat. We have not heard as yet what Bob- bie’s final intentions are concerning his career, but we feel that he and the ves- sel will coast determined and unchecked up and down the valleys of life to a happy destination. R OBERT was born at Allentown, November 25, 1902. He was graduated from Allentown High in 1919 and entered Muhlenberg the same year. He is enrolled in the B. S. course and intends to take up en- gineering. In his Sophomore year he was the class treasurer and at pres- ent is a Junior Associate Editor of the WEEKLY, and Assistant Adver- tising Manager of the CIARLA. He is a member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and the A. H. S., Sandwich, and Press Clubs. He belongs to the Reformed church and uses his own judgment when voting. •BOBBIE’ Page Eighty-three Christian Edward Mills Brodheadsville, Pa. “I ' ll make a lever that will rock the world.” C HRISTIAN was born at Brod- headsville, April 2, 1901. He pre- pared at Fairview Academy and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He is a very active student and one of the most representative students. As a Freshman he was on the class baseball and football teams and was out for track. He continued these athletic ac- tivities thruout the following years. At present he is Assistant Circulation manager of the WEEKLY, Track Man- ager, Junior representative to the A. A., Assistant Business Manager of the CIARLA and Vice President of the class. He is a member of the Delta Theta Fraternity and the Monroe County Club. For the two years he has been on the honor roll. He is a Lutheran, intends to teach the sciences, and is a Democrat. M ILLS is another of our many Adonises. His sparkling eye, rosy cheeks, and manly figure are the reason for the sudden fall of many a modern Venus of Allentown. “Chris " likewise makes a hit with the men and is one of the best all around students in the crowd. He is a fine scholar, an efficient track manager and a willing waiter in the commons. In addition to the preceeding anti-climax, Mills finds time to hold down a job on the A. A. and to go in for class athletics. Anybody that can handle the wild shoots of the Juniors pitchers deserves credit and that is what our Romeo did last year in the interclass series. “Cris” has charge of the physics “!ab” on Saturdays and has ample op- portunity to make life hard for the many students in the extension course with whom he comes in contact. Dame rumor has it that the class is not entirely a stag affair. However we are sure that he attends to business and is as cool and collected as the night they brought Zarty home from the Ausflug, — ’nuff said. “CHRIS” Page Eighty-four William Franklin Mosser 1544 Hamilton Street Allentown, Pemna. “With teachers and lecturers he never could agree. If they’d recite, good gracious, why should he?’’ t T ILL” is a man of varied accom- |S plishments. He can play the mandolin, act, shoot pool, drive a car, and sing. His greatest hobby lies in driving his car and he rides his hobby hard. But it is his work on the Glee Club which makes his greatest claim to fame. ' His melodious voice aids in the harmony, his mandolin furnishes jazz music, he acts in the skit, and is manager besides. “Bill” is an optimist, and his cheery smile is a sure cure for any case of the blues. He says very little about his per- sonal affairs, but we believe that his ready smile, his conversational powers, and his engaging manners place him in the first rank of heart-breakers. W ILLIAM was born at Allen- town, October 30, 1900. He entered Mercersburg Acad- emy and from there came to Muhlen- berg in 1919. He was elected class vice president in his Freshman year and was a member of the class football and track teams. He con- tinued in these athletic activities for the three years. He has been one of the most prominent members of the Glee Club since his Freshman year and is at present it’s manager. Be- sides being a regular member he takes an active part in the skit and is on the Mandolin Club. He is enrolled in the B.S. Course and intends to take up mechanical engineering. He is a Lutheran and votes with the Repub- licans. “BILL” Page Eighty-five John Henry Neumeyer Seventeenth and Butler Streets Easton, Penna. “And he shook men he laughed like a howl full of Jello.’’ J OHN was born at Easton, April 12, 1898. He prepared at The Tome School and after work at Lehigh en- tered Muhlenberg on January 31, 1922. In his short stay at Muhlenberg, he has been a loyal supporter of activities. He is enrolled in the Ph. B. course and intends to teach. He is Democratic and a member of the Reformed church. J OHN is a newcomer at Muhlenberg and comes from Easton. Altho this is Lafayette’s home town, John is a real honest-to-goodness good fellow. He looks and is an optimist. This is because he resembles Santa Claus. He is one of those rare specimens seldom seen since the days of Volstead et al. At that tho John says he never touches it! He rooms at the Y. M. C. A. and does his studying in the lobby among the checker sharks. However this seems to produce results as he is quite there with the goods. John is a good ( ? ) auto salesman and believes in the psychology of the game. We expect great things from him when he gets ac- quainted with the college, and, from his present prosperous appearance have no fears as to his future. “NEUMEYER” Page Eighty-six Ernest Adam Rauch ‘•ERNIE” Emerald, Penna. “Mature formeth strange fellows in her time.’’ E RNEST is another one of the teach- ers from up north. He came to us in our Sophomore year from Slat- ington and has proven to be a very interesting and valuable addition to our collection of phenomena in West Berks. Adam has peculiarities of his own not the least of which is sleeping. This is quite a natural accomplishment and we always figured that he and Gomer would make ideal room-mates in that they would never bother each other. Another thing which causes Ernest to stand out among his fe.low men and makes him more respected is the un- fortunate fact that each Sunday night he is forced to listen to the sermons of our own dear Rev. R. C. Mi.ler. How he can do this and still retain his genial personality is a mystery to us. How- ever, Ernest has gone on record as say- ing that such a trifle as a talking parson was not a hindrance to him when he cared to indulge in his favorite pastime (previously mentioned). Ernie already has his helpmeet so he has little to worry him in that direction. The fates forbid! We never suspected it. Ernest is a good student and intends to study medicine. We feel sure that he is in his proper sphere of ability and that he will make good. E RNEST was born at Slatington, November 1, 1899. He was graduated from the Slatington High School and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1920. He is enrolled in the B. S. course and intends to take up medicine. He is a United Evangelical. He votes the Republi- can ticket. Page Eighty-seven Gomer Spieker Rees 171 South Third Street Lehighton, Penna. “As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.’’ OMER was born at Philadelphia, Pa., April 9, 1902. He prepared at Greensburg High School and came to Muhlenberg in September 1919. He enrolled in the A. B. course and intends to take up the ministry. In his Freshman year he was quite active in football and while he was captain of the Freshman class team he also showed up well in some of the last games of the season on the varsity. He was not out for the gridiron team but in his Junior year surprised all of his friends by making Coach Spiegel’s team as first string center. Gomer was class Treasurer in his Freshman year and was out for class track his Sophomore year. This year he is Associate Editor of the CIARLA. Gomer is a member of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity. He has been on the Glee Club for three years and is on the Pan Hellenic Council. Gomer is a Lutheran. He favors the Republican party. B EHOLD Gomer, the star center of the football team. A more deceiv- ing proposition would be hard to conceive. Altho he is of husky build, one would never take him for an athlete. For Gomer is the Rip Van Winkle of Muhlenberg, in fact, even more so, in that there are no definite prospects of his ever awakening. He is never in a hurry and is a firm believer in the old saying that every thing conies to him who waits. His favorite expression is: “Why, Gee Whiz, Nobody does anything. If I don’t do it, it don’t get done.” And then he proceeds to make up for “lost sleep”. Believe us, Gomer is an authority on that, and if he ever wrote a book on that or a kindred subject he’d be on easy street for the rest of his life. Gomer is no woman hater. He gets more letters and gifts from them per unit of attention than any one else we know — which is all to his credit. Gomer is very popular around the school and is one of the most active members of the Glee Club. “GOMER” Page Eighty-eigh: Allen Lewis Roth 338 Fourth Street Slatington, Penna, “It’s all right to have irons in the fire; but the thing is to get them hot.’’ T HIS long, lean, lanky, dark-com- plexioned individual hails from the wonderful town of “slats.” We have been often trying to think whether he was an asset or a liability to the college. The other day Prof. Simpson asked him whether he was a Senior or a Freshman to which he replied that he did not know. This young man is very much interested in math and science and his aim in life is to marry a certain young lady in Slatington who is likewise a shark in this field of endeavor. We have i nform- ation to the effect that he is progressing rapidly. Seriously, Allen has made good in his class work especially in his favorites and in the department of modern lan- guages and is bound to be a success. He came out for cross country this fall and, altho he was a new man, made quite a good showing. He has been a silent class booster and a willing worker when- ever some task was assigned to him. Another of his specialties is making nails. A LLEN was born at Slatington, Pa., May 17, 1902. He was graduated from the high school of that place and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He is enrolled in the Ph. B. course and intends to teach. He is very popular around school and a staunch supporter of all that goes on. He shines at cross country and track. He is a member of the Reformed church and favors the Republican party. “ROTH” Page Eighty-niiic William Harold Rufe Riegelsville, Penna. 1 ‘ Much ado there was, I ’d wot, He would love and she would not.” W ILLIAM was born at Riegels- ville. June 19, 1900. He pre- pared at Mercersburg and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1921. He is enrolled in the Ph. B. course and intends to become a brok- er. In his short stay at Muhlenberg, William has engaged in class football, is a member of the Glee Club and will make a good showing on the baseball diamond. He is a member of the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity. In politics he is non-Partisan. B ILL came to us at the beginning of the year and made his appearance with the football men. He fre- quented the field to such an extent that altho he was never in togs the report arose that he was either the . assistant coach or a mysterious visitor from an enemy team. However, we soon came to know him and found him to be quite harmless. In fact, he is one of the most jovial and well met fellows on the cam- pus. He stars rather in baseball than in football, altho he upheld the standards of the Pagans in the Junior class athletic fiasco. In the diamond game he is an excellent fielder and looks as if he was the best material around for such a position. Rufe and Huey are great friends ex- cept that Bill prefers blondes and sticks to them pretty well. He has a predilec- tion for coming into a room around eleven o’clock in the night and hang ing around until three or later. To cure him of this propensity is the leading aim in his roommate’s life. Rufe is one of the mainstays of the Glee Club and is generally active and useful around the campus. “BILL” Page Ninety George Alvin Rupp 727 N. 26th Street Allentown, Penna. ‘Talking is one of the fine arts.” G EORGE was born in this city August 29, 1901. He prepared at Allentown Prep, and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He was elected secretary of the class in his Freshman year. In his Sopho- more year he scrubbed for football manager. He was elected Business Manager of the CIARLA. He is As- sistant FootbaH Manager, a member of Student Council, and of the Pan- Hellenic Council. George enrolled in the P h. B. course and intends to go into business. He is a member of the Delta Theta Fraternity and the A. P. S. club. He votes the Demo- cratic ticket and is a member of the Reformed church. L OUD music, professor — as we intro- duce Mr. George Rupp, our erst- while business magnate. A man of such lofty aspirations is indeed a mem- ber of Allentown’s “4,000”. What! you were then deceived by his innocent photo? Yes, even we cannot fully under- stand “how he puts it over” those wise and greyheaded old fellows at brother- hood meetings. ’Tis a pity. “Ruppy” became a man of the world during his sophomore year, when he was lead astray during a moonlite dance by sev- eral of the fair sex. Of course “Ruppy” didn’t know when it was time to quit, because he was minus his watch. There- after, such occurrences as the receipt of inumerable pink and perfumed envelop- es, mysterious trips to Madison Square Garden, and debates about “percentage” in relation to women, became the rule. Friends you must know several of these facts, to know “Ruppy”; but even then he has been loyal to Muhlenberg, and is very active as the assistant foot- ball manager, and the success of the Ciarla, proves his ability in the business world. We are therefore certain that success for him will not be such a great improbability. “GEORGE” Paite Ninety-one Stirling Caleb Schmoyer Wescoesville, Penna. “ ’Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” S TIRLING was born at Trexler- town January 1, 1900, and was educated at Allentown Prep. School. He entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919 and enrolled in the Ph.B. course with law as his intended profession. He is a Lutheran. At Muhlenberg he has been a loyal sup- porter of all that goes on. He was class vice-president in his Sophomore year and Associate Editor of the CIARLA, having charge of the Book of the College. He is a member of the A. P. S. and Kistler Clubs, and is a Republican. A BIG rosy cheeked chap from the Lehigh county clime is long on individuality. ’Tis not always the large city that produces the greatest men. Napoleon was born in a small place in Corsica; Edison comes from a country hamlet while Schmoyer comes from Trexlertown. If you have ever been mixed up with a 110 volt current you may have some idea of what it means to enter into an argument with Schmoyer. His brain works like light- ning, and, since his efforts have by no means been confined to academic work (we should estimate his average study period as ten minutes) it follows that he has gained renown elsewhere. Altho quite a shark in wood working he found it impossible to plane geometry. Look at his record as grand high wizard of the grange and you will realize the source of his enormous wealth and pow- er. Stirling is the kind of a man you like to make a party with, for his good spir- its never flag, and if things get rough you can depend on him not to lose his head and stand shoulder to shoulder with you. STIRLING” Pane Ninety-two Horace Thomas Schuler, Jr. East Texas, Penna. In Memoriam : “Eat, drink and he merry, and: Wine, women and song.’’ D ID you ever get up with one of those feeling that was quickly dis- pelled by the bright sunlight. Well, the appearance of “Speed’s” shin- ing countenance acts the same way. “Oh! I just love ‘Speed’ Shuler” is the way the women commonly refer to him. But you really can’t blame them for Speed is tall, handsome, and quite irresistable. His room is an art gallery of the fair sex of which seventy five percent — well you know. In various institutions of learning de- voted to the fair sex, “Speed” is supreme and rumor has it that he has agreed to coach Hood College football team next year. Early in his career, he became identified with the midnight riders and thru faithful and prolonged service has attained the highest rank possible, that of All Night Rider. As a driver of automobiles, Barney Oldfield is a “never was.” On one particular occasion, “Speed” drove his car seventy miles an hour over a state road with one hand while rolling a cigarette with the other. We are looking for big things from Horace as he has the backbone that wifi take him far. H TRACE was born at East Texas May 27, 1901. He prepared at Bethlehem Prep, and at Key- stone Normal and entered Muhlen- berg in the fall of 1919. He is en- rolled in the Ph. B. course but is undecided as to what shall be his life work. In his Freshman year he was out for class football, basketball and track. In his Sophomore year he scrubbed football and basketball and was a member of the class football, baseball, basketball, and track teams. He was elected class vice-president in his Junior year and scrubbed foot- ball as well as playing class football, basketball and track. He is a mem- ber of the Delta Theta Fraternity, K. S. N. S. Club, Bethlehem Prep. Club, and Magi Club. He favors the Republican party altho he is a staunch anti-prohibitionist. He belongs to the Reformed church. SPEED Page Ninety-three Harry Eugene Sowers Auburn, Penna. “Lives of great men all remind us.’’ H ARRY was born at Auburn, Pa., April 7, 1897. He prepared at Keystone State Normal School and entered Muhlenberg in the year 1920. In his first year with us he was active in class activities being a member of the baseball and track teams. He was a member of the Glee Club that year. In his Junior year he was elected treasurer of the class and was on the Press Club. Harry intends to become a teacher. He hopes to help the Republicans retain their mastery in the state. He is a member of the K. K. K., A. E. F., and K. S. N. S. Clubs, and a member of the Phi Epsilon Fraternity. H ARRY came into our midst as a Sophomore and so missed the joys of being a Freshman. However, he came full of determination and with plenty of experience. His experience consisted of eight months of “time” in France and of a few years as the wielder of the pointer in the schoolroom. Yet as soon as Sowers came here, he began doing things. His voice, as well as his acting, have contributed much to the success of the Glee Club. He is also Bernie’s first lieutenant and Is! es- pecially in evidence in the office on a Saturday morning. He says that he has many “old” friends among the teachers, because he was at one time an extension student. Harry is also active a’ong social lines. He is a regular attendant at St. Mich- ael’s Luther League but there may be some “strings” to that! In addition to his other failings, Harry makes regular trips to Slatington, where we fear he has made an “entangling alliance”. Harry’s ambition is to become the head of K. S. N. S. and, if he works as hard as he does now, we prophesy that he will reach his goal. “HARRY” Page Ninety-four J. Russell Stroup 1607 Chew Street Allentown, Penna. “Love and films are alike in that they are best developed in the dark.” R USSELL was born at Elizabeth- ville, Pa., April 1, 1902. He was graduated from Allentown High School in 1919 and entered Muhlen- berg the same year. He is taking a special course with the intention of taking up Chemical Engineering. He is a member of the Lutheran church. Russell belongs to the Delta Theta Fraternity, is Photographic Editor of the CIARLA and is a member of the A. H. S. and Sandwich Clubs. He votes the Democratic ticket. T HIS dispenser of liquid refreshments (behind the bar in his dad’s soda emporium) is perhaps one of the most versatile men in the class. Judg- ing from his work in the Chem lab. there is no need of worrying about his success in the class room. Among his varied outside interests, not the least is photo- graphy. It is rumored that Prof. Bailey gets most of his lecture material from this budding apostle of Abbe. It is safe to say that there is a great future if not a past “in store” for this horn tooter. For Russel is likewise pro- ficient at both the cornet and the sax. To see him play both of these instru- ments simultaneously while wiggling his ears and working the traps with his feet is a revelation indeed — in addition to being a riot. Jacob, or is it Jonathon, is quite an extensive traveler. He has been known for some time as an author- ity on the wilds of west Coplay. To quote his own words “ ’tis BEST for me in Coplay.” Russel is no slouch on danc- ing either, is a good card player, and has a few other vices! “RUSS” Page Ninety-five Raymond V. Thomas “Silence may be golden but a silvery voice is no abomination.’ ’ " ZIP” R AY was born at San Diego, Cal., May 4, 1899. He prepared at Exeter and Peddie and entered Muhlenberg from Lafayette in the late fall of 1920. He is a pre-med student nd intends to become a surgeon. At Muhlenberg he has dis- tinguished himself as a member of the Glee Club, being vocal soloist this past season. He is interested in class athletics and played in the Pagan-Minister football game. He is a member of the Delta Kappa Ep- silon Fraternity. He is Episcopalian and votes the Independent ticket. I N “Zip” we have the ideal reference to point to when discussing the pro and con of a heavy line. But when this is blended with his continuous shaft of finely drawn sarcasm, we have the es- sential qualities of what tend to make him the “Napoleon of Bull.” Marked ability in the rendition of dialects aids him in getting away with some reputa- tion as a narrator, but when he sings — then and then only do we behold him at his zenith. Whether the song be “Hom- er’s Requiem” or “Which Hazel” he is sure to hold you spell bound. It is no wonder that he was unanimously chosen as the Glee Club soloist. His activities in athletics are confined solely to aspirations, altho he might do some good work in football or track were it not for his heavy social duties. He is strictly “Booksey” and deeply scorns any prerogative set by Kuppen- heimer or Hart, Schaffner, and Marx. Someone has said that his distinctive style coupled with his assured appear- ance caused many ladies to doubt the rewards of peaceful home life, but we dope him out as a clean-cut, American youth. This is not “ZIP” Page Ninety-six William John Transue Catasauqua, Penna. ‘ ‘ He can not be complete in aught Who is not humorously prone.” 6th and Arch Street W ILLIAM was born at St. Jos- eph, Mo., July 17, 1901, and came East for his education. He was graduated from Bethlehem Prep. School in 1919 and entered Muh- lenberg the same year, enrollnig in the B. S. course with medicine in mind. In his Junior year he went out for cross country and played class foot- ball. He was elected class president J or the second semester. He belongs to the Delta Theta Fraternity and the Bethlehem Prep. Club. William is Reformed. He votes the Republi- can ticket. Y OU who do not know him, peruse this. If you do not know him, you are wasting your time. Read six- teen volumes of Boswellian biography with Cooper as the theme and you will know less than if you talk to him for five minutes. His history would make Napoleon himself sit up and take notice. “Bill’s” one weak point is his desire for limburger cheese which he hides be- hind the radiator. It was Bill’s super- ior headwork that won the game for the Pagans. Because of his conscientious training on strawberry shortcake and cigarettes, Bill has developed into quite a cross country runner. He was once accused of studying but emphatically denied the charge. One thing about Bill, he is always perfectly at home. It matters little whether he is making a “faux pas” at a dinner party, passing the time of day with a gang of fellows or telling a girl how she makes his heart flutter, he is always enjoying life. His charms as a dancer and fusser are too well known to need more than passing mention. Bill, by your genial personality and unwaver- ing devotion to your friends you have won us all. “BILL” Pagre Ninety-seven California Morgan Wagner Strausstown, Penna. “Life! Death! Space! Eternity! I shall solve all these.’’ “ AL” was born at Strausstown, Pa., February 17, 1903, and is the youngest man in the class. He prepared at Bernville High School and entered Muhlenberg in 1919. He intends to teach and is taking the Ph. B. course at Muhlenberg. In his Sophomore year he was on the class basketball and baseball teams being captain of the latter. In his Junior year he was an active scrub on the football team and engaged in class football and basketball. He is a member of the Berks County Club and of the Republican party. He belongs to the Lutheran church. “ AL” is the youngest member of the class of 1923, and because of his diminutive size is often caked “Petit.” However “Cal” says that he has a chance to grow because he does not drink or smoke or chew. He has spent much of his time lately hunting for a girl who does not use cosmetics. As Diogenes once said, “It’s a hard job.” When “Cal’s” feelings are ruffled and he wants to express a view-point that most fellows can not without using unprint- able language, he says, Gosh! Dickens! However he promises to break himself of this habit. His favorite indoor sport is letter writing at which he is a past master. During the summer “Cal” works on a farm but during the school year takes it pretty easy at school. He is quite athletic, however, and takes interest in basketball and baseball, at both of which he is proficient. He ran cross country as a Freshman and this past year was out for the eleven. “Cal” is undecided whether he will take up teaching or the ministry as his life work, but we are sure that whatever it is he will make good because he has the right spirit. “CAL” Page Ninety-eight Floyd Haywood Weaver Street Allentown, Penna. ‘ ‘ I studied, so I ' m educated. ’ ’ F LOYD was born in Allentown, April 23, 1901. He was graduat- ed in the Classical course from High School and continued that course at Muhlenberg. He is Assistant Pho- tograph Editor of the CIARLA and a member of the A. H. S. and Sand- wich Clubs. He belongs to the Luth- eran church and votes the Republican ticket. He intends to teach. T HIS twentieth century Pollux is in appearance quite an “angel boy.” He goes to church regularly on Sun- day night and is otherwise well behaved. Floyd has moreover an intelligent look on his face that is quite deceiving and it has been said that he can successfully conjugate a Greek noun. On the whole tho, he is quite conscientious and gets along as well as the rest of us. Floyd, like R. K. possesses a Ford; a most ancient, pernicious, obstreperous, and unessential Ford. On one particular midnight escapade he well nigh ruined the understanding of another well known Junior. However, this is a taboo subject. We believe that the machine is now extinct so that we can now safely walk the streets without fear and danger. Floyd is Assistant Photographic Editor of the CIARLA and up to last reports does not possess a camera. However he has done quite a good bit of work in put- ting out that end of the work and in addi- tion has gathered in quite a number of ads for the book. It is willingness to do his share of the work, whatever it may be, that makes him popular with his friends and we expect great things from him. 345 North 14th FLOYD” Page Ninety-nine Paul Franklin Weaver 509 Market Street Perkasie, Penna. “We can’t shine all of the time; Even the moon can’t do that.’’ P AUL was born at Perkasie, Sept. 17, 1900. He was educated in the public schools of that place and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He enrolled in the B. S. course and intends to teach. At Muhlenberg he has been a member of the class baseball and basketball teams for three years and of the football team for the last two years. He was class secretary in his Junior year and was also Local Editor of the WEEKLY and Associate Editor of the CIARLA. He is a member of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity and of the Bucks County Club. Paul is a member of the Evangelical church and uses his own judgment when voting. “T ET’S go to the movies tonight” is I one of Paul’s favorite expressions and he generally lives up to it. Where he got the habit, we do not know but it has been said that perhaps the ticket seller at one of the fashionable movie houses could explain this pheno- menon. “Buck,” as he is called by all those who know him, hails from Perkasie and takes the regular B.S. course at Berg. In addition he has been taking the afore mentioned social course down town and has become an eminent professor. Now that we have disposed of his faults, we might as well add that Buck is a bard studying man and aspires to be a for- ester, at which line of endeavor he is bound to succeed. In addition he has engaged in all forms of interclass activities with much success and has well represented ’23. Probably the last accomplishment but by no means the least might be his ex- pertness at holding hands, five of a kind (aces preferred) being his favorite! He is indeed one of the five hundred and will reach the “pinochle” of success. “BUCK” Page One Hundred Fred Wilson Weiler 514 Turner Street Allentown, Penna. ‘Tomorrow! Why tomorrow 1 may he Myself with yesterday’s ten thousand years.” T O quote Spencer, “a pomposity of sesquepedalian verbage” would be inadequate to present to you the characteristics of this prepossessing youth. To draw a comparison, consider the days before Volstead became synony- mous with Sahara and recall to your mind the effects of opening a bottle of champagne. It was always a loud pop followed by a fiz-z-z-z. The comparison is complete, for the entrance of “Fritz” is always preceeded by a loud laugh fol- lowed by such an effervesence of spirits which is really contagious and intoxicat- ing. We will not deny that he has possi- bilities and ambitions. He wants to be a journalist and if being a successful journalist requires the possession of a heavy line we have little doubts of his success. His method is that of the lilies. “They toil not, neither do they spin” and yet he proceeds toward the acquisition of a sheepskin. Socially he is lady’s man. The use of the singular, here, is not singular in the least. It’s a fact; for he is an ad- vocate of concentration for producing results. From all observations he seems to get them. These achievements, however, are enhanced by the possession of a Haynes touring car and, after an evening’s spin he may be heard to utter laconically, “She’s a good kid, tho, bless her.” And again, if good wishes mean suc- cess, he is bound to succeed in more ways than one. F RED was born at Emaus, January 1, 1902. He entered Muhlenberg after graduating from Allentown High School and enrolled in the A. B. course with Journalism as his intend- ed profession. He is a member of the Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity and of the A. H. S. and Sandwich Clubs. He is Associate Editor of the WEEKLY and Advertising Manager of the CIARLA. Fred votes the Republican ticket and is a member of the Re- formed church. “FRITZ” Page One Hundred One Richard Kuhns Yehl 1531 Hanover Avenue Allentown Penna. “To emancipate oneself from the ethical bonds that fetter the individual because of theo- logical limits is a distinct right.’’ R ICHARD was born at Bangor, Pa., February 22, 1900. He went to Allentown Prep School and entered Muhlenberg in the tall of 1918. He was a member of the track and cross country teams in his Fresh- man year and also class historian. In his Junior year he went out for class football and varsity track, and cross country. He is manager of the baseball team and Assistant Art Editor of the CIARLA. He belongs to the Delta Theta Fraternity and is a member of the A. P. S. and Sandwich clubs. Richard is Lutheran and pre- fers the Republican party. T O look at him you would not take this smooth-faced, Well-spruced, clean-cut, young man for a min- ister’s son. He looks more like the ideal salesman or drummer than the other. But this resemblance is only outward, for otherwise “Dick” lives up to all the responsibilities of his position in sight. He is a conscientious student, a clear thinker, and a man of sound morals, and he is ready to stand up for these anywhere, anytime, against anyone. “Dick’s” outlook on life is therefore a very philosophic one and nothing is more interesting than to hear his views on the various problems that crop up. It took all the temptation of a Junior “ausflug” to make him forget, even for a moment, the serious things of this mundane world. “Dick” is a trackman of quite some ability having represented Muhlenberg as a quarter miler and in cross country. He is an all around good fellow with the men and we have a sus- picion that he has little trouble getting along with members of the opposite gender. This is a question, however, upon which we have little information. DICK” Page One Hundred Two Ira Forry Zartman Lititz, Penna. “I would go to the gates of hell with a friend — I ivould go in!” I RA was born at Lititz, December 18, 1899, and was graduated from Lititz High in 1918. He entered Muhlenberg with the class of 1919. In his Freshman year he was a mem- ber of the track and cross country teams and played inter-class football and basketball. He was captain of the basketball. He was captain of the class basketball for two years. He continued his activities in these sports in his Sophomore year and added varsity football in his Junior year. In this year he was elected class president, and Assistant Advertising- Manager of the CIARLA. He is a member of the Student Council and the Press and Lancaster County Clubs. He is a Phi Kappa Tau man, votes the Republican ticket, and is a Lutheran. Ira is enrolled in the B.S. course and intends to become an engineer. 44 r " 7 ARTY” comes from Lancaster county and, if you meet him once, 1 you are sure to know it. He may be a little awkward on account of his being a Pennsylvania Dutchman and twisting some of his letters, but he has the pep and spirit of a loyal member of the class of ’23. Zartman has played class basketball and football and was one of the scrubs that helped to develop our greatest football team. He has become Myron Kistler’s greatest rival in the photo- graphic art and will in all likelihood take his place next year. “Zarty” is a loyal fellow as was shown by the way he stuck to his roomy the night of the Junior “Ausflug.” On such occasions he becomes very vociferous and argumentative. He has become a connoisseur in the art of Terpsichore and quite frequently shakes a wicked hoof at the “Pioneers.” We understand that Ira expects to be- come an electro-chemical engineer and, as he has a weakness for Spanish maid- ens, he will undoubtedly travel to South America. ZARTY” Page One Hundred Three Harry William Huey 337 Vine Street Elizabeth, N. J. “There is no death; what seems so is transition.” H ARRY was born at Hazleton, Pennsylvania, we don’t know when. He prepared at Battin High School, Elizabeth and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1920. He has shown much interest in the WEEKLY and intends to take up Journalism when he leaves Muhlen- berg. He is enrolled in the Ph.B. course. He is a member of the A. T. O. Fraternity and of the Kistler Club. He is an Independent voter. O NE big fault with Huey is that he does not possess flowing locks, baggy trousers, or a mysterious face. For he is the closest approach Muhlenberg can boast of to the dabbing socialists that are sup- posed to sit so tranquilly in the dark garrets of Greenwich village and other alleged resorts of Bohemian beings. Not that Harry is a poet or an aritst or anything like that. But he has a violent propensity for writing editorials and short stories on sub- jects like the modern flapper, graft, socialism, etc. He has thus acquired a reputation not unlike those of the aforementioned type. Yet if one were to accuse him of this, the chances are ten to one that he would vigorously deny the charge and throw you out of the room. Harry spends a great deal of his time in the library discussing advanc- ed problems of the world with Pro- fessor Simpson. These mysterious conferences have often resulted in literary outbursts from our classmate and we expect to find him sufficiently inspired some day to set the world on fire with a blaze of genius. He has the stuff in him to do it. In his saner moments Huey is a most agree- able and jovial companion. We hope that an unusual and super woman will capture him with her wiles and succor him from the afflic- tion of cynicism. It is very probable that this has already occurred. “HARRY” Page One Hundred Four Jesse G. Kline 1188 Main Street “Oh, what a spendth J ESSE was born at Northampton, January 16, 1900. He prepared at Northampton High and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1918. In his Freshman year he was elected vice-president of his class, was a member of the class football, track and basketball teams. He scrubbed football and track that year. He con- tinued these athletic activities thruout his entire stay at college. In his Sophomore year he was president of the class. He is a member of the Delta Theta Fraternity, and was Jun- ior representative to the A. A. He is a member of the Reformed Church. He is enrolled in the B. S. course and intends to study medicine. He is a Republican. Northampton, Penna. ift he is of Ms tongue ! ’ ’ G ENTLE readers, stop for a moment before reading this inadequate de- scription and study the subject of my ravings as pictured at the top of this distinguished page. Kline is anoth- er great authority on the American national indoor sport. Jesse is ready at any time to talk on any subject. He usually leaves you amazed at your ignorance and at his acute knowledge of things. He finds more pleasure in reading magazines and love stories than in the pursuit of his studies. Sleep to him is such a treat he barely gets a bite to eat, and at break- fast time and when running to chapel are the only times in the day that he is in a hurry. Jesse was never known to flunk a fourth re-exam. You are likely to see Jesse’s smiling face in any bunch and wherever he is he belongs. His ideas are always good and the only time he approaches being in- sincere is when he swears off smoking. Happy go lucky, in for anything, albeit sometimes very serious — that is Jesse Kline. He is broad-mined and an all around good fellow. “JESS Page One Hundred Five Frederick George Schmerker 212 South Madison Street Allentown, Penna. “I would rather he aslred why I had not a statue erected to me than why I had.’’ F RED was born in Allentown, September 22, 1901.

At present he is an • Assistant Advertising Manager of the CIARLA and a member of the A. H. S. and Sandwich Clubs. He is a Luth- eran and non partisan in his voting. B ECAUSE he has so little to say, Fred is one of the most underesti- mated men of the class. He is quiet both in the class room and out, but that is no reason for believing that he knows little, for he is one of the best science men in the school. From the time he was in high school, Fred has had little trouble with math and the like. This can explain his favorite pastime of building radio stations and wireless out- fits. He is a big man and has had big ideas. One of his aspirations is to design and construct the first suspension bridge across the Atlantic. After this is finish- ed Fred says he will go ahead with plans to drain the Pacific to get water to sup- ply the needed fountains at Muhlenberg. But seriously, tho, we shall yet hear from him in his favorite line of en- deavor. Fred is religiously inclined for one can see him at the door of Christ’s Church every Sunday night welcoming the weak and the weary. Outside of a session, now and then, of the light fan- tastic, Fred is little interested in ath- letics. He makes up for this, however, by being an enthusiastic supporter of all that goes on around the college. Men of his mettle will not have any diffi- culty in keeping the wolf from the door. “FRITZ” Page One Hundred Six Austin Lee Taggart 542 Hamilton Street Norristown, Penna. “Nature formed but one such man, alas. ' and broke the mould.’’ H ERE’S a man indeed! Standing six feet in his stockings, he represents two hundred pounds of bone and muscle mixed with enough pep to make him a success- ful football player. “Os” is an all around athlete. He won his letter each season in both football and basketball and bids fair to win it in track. Among other things, he coaches the Northampton High School cage team and last year his team won the pennant. In classes “Tag” has often been conspicuous by his absence, but, since he recently turned over a new leaf, he is as regular in his attendance as any of his class mates. When he does miss his classes, it is to use his immense strength in the services of “Conrad, Schoenly and Co.” Taggart is very good natured but never allows anyone to take advantage of him. He always plays the game on the square. He may frequently be found in loud arguments in any of the rooms and he always says he is from Missouri. It is rumored that after a certain summer in the lumber camps, “Os” has paid attention to a certain damsel. But then I wouldn’t say that about him. Nevertheless he has made mysterious trips to Bangor of late. As regards his future, let us say that all he needs to become a success is a little inspiration. A USTIN was born at Norristown, October 13, 1900. He was edu- cated at Norristown High and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1919. He is enrolled in the Ph. B. course and intends to enter business. He is a Phi Gamma Delta man. At Muhlenberg he shines in athletics, and has been an “M” man in football and basketball for three years. This gives him the largest number of “M’s” of any man in the college. In ad- dition he is out for the field events in track. He is a member of Student Council and an officer of his class. Austin is a Presbyterian. He votes the Republican ticket. ‘OS” Page One Hundred Seven 125 King Street John Aaron Trout Pottstown, Pa. “A hopeless, mixed, tangled mass of ideas.’’ T ROUT is the Beau Brummel of the class of 1923. He delights in wearing bright colored cravats, flashy socks, patent leather shoes, and the like. Unlike some of us who are less susceptible to the things that are unseen, John is highly emotional. Sometimes his nervous system works overtime and he does all sorts of things from rushing downtown at 11 P. M. for a chocolate nut sundae to packing his valise and going A. W. O. L. for a ten day escapade to Washington. D. C. But with all your idiosyncracies (forgetting our own for the moment) we love you, John; we love you. We love you for what you are tho we cannot at all times understand you. And we are counting on you to make Pottstown famous for something besides it’s regular run of fame. And, John is a physical culturist almost to the point of fanaticism. He never tires reading Bernard Mc-Fadden’s rules for growing strong and vital, and the day may come when we may pay a perfectly good two bit piece to see the strong man in some side show and on entering find that the Hercules of the saw dust ring is none other than John Aaron himse ' f! Who can tell? But, seriously, John, we predict for you a successful life, honorable and influential, and filled to the brim with everlasting happiness. J OHN was born at Pottstown, June 11, 1900. He was graduated from the High School of that town in 1919 and entered Muhlenberg in the fall of the same year. He is enrolled in the Ph. B. course and intends to teach. John belongs to the Lutheran church and favors the Republican party. He was elected class monitor for the Junior year. “JOHNNIE ’ Page One Hundred Eight Charles Monroe Bolich, ’22 308 Lehigh Street Allentown, Pemna. Born at Drehersville, Pa., Sept. 9, 1900.

This young man is a student, an agriculturalist, inventor, hunter, manu- facturer, and general business man. Charlie has just received a patent from the government authorizing him to man- ufacture a new automobile license holder of which he was the inventor. Charles expects to become Henry Ford the sec- ond. After he graduates from Muhlenberg we expect great things from him. Bolich has a habit of going down to the High School cafeteria for his dinner and we are patiently awaiting the day when his engagement to one of those beautiful waitresses will be announced. Another good place to find him is in the Y. M. C. A. where he spends spare hours reading weekly patent reports from Washington. He is quite an authority on this.

Deliberation and concentration comprise his inherited characteristics accounting somewhat for his gradual conversion into that species, biologically termed bookworm. For Elmer is a Sen- ior having completed his full course in three years; no mean achievement. Do not harbor the impression that be- cause of this propensity “Rube” is social- ly limited to the campus. Much data to the contrary is available in the diary of a fair faced damsel beyond Lehigh mountain. Regardless of the fact that Elmer’s pair of “Underwood Grands” hold all the ribbons in our none too scanty exhibit of footwear, “Rube” aspires to enter the seminary and lead the seminary “fairy waltz.” Yea, the day of miracles is not over yet.

Only once, dear reader, only once, mark you, has Raymond yielded to temptation and more than this we cannot say, other than that a bewiskered fellow minister adjacent to Muhlenberg was the dastardly cause of the fall. As before mentioned Raymond is a premier student. He has finished the course in three years and will enter Princeton next year to complete his work for the B. D. degree. He has our best wishes in this venture. Harold Custer Wimmer, 22 Bingen, Penna. Born at Bingen, Pa., August 31, 1897. Coopers- burg High School. Entered Muhlenberg September, 1921.

He entered at the be- ginning of this year and has done the Senior work in a capable manner, he has been very reticent and we found it hard to get acquainted with him but from re- ports of his most intimate friends he is right there with the goods. He is quite an agriculturist and has brought science to the farm with many useful and up-to-date experiments, many of which he has explained to his classmates. We expect to see the day when he will raise rice on the Sahara desert and grapefruit in Siberia. We know that he is somewhat affected by women because we have caught him with the goods, but to what extent He suffers we can only surmise. At any rate, we wish him good luck and more luck and expect big doings from him in the future. “WIMMER” Page One Hundred Ten Ex. ’23 Men Russell Armbruster Scranton, Penna. B. S. Class Secretary.

The novelty of the Freshman year has worn off, and a realization of the meaning of college life is making itself manifest. We are sorry to find that there were some who did not return on September thirteenth, but we feel that the associations afforded them in the class of “24” will always remain with them to lead them to success. It is not our purpose to specifically record our various collegiate activities. Those are things taken for granted. But in passing we might say that, contrary to custom, our Sophomore Class retained a large amount of that conquering spirit that it had shown as a Freshman Class ; resulting in the defeat of the class of 1925, in the Banner Scrap, and a decisive victory in the Soph-Frosh Football Game. Our activities became generalized in the activities of the college, instead of the class primarily. As a result, we furnished the neucleus of the victorious football team, we had a good representation on the basketball team, and the Glee Club, and we have very promising candidates for the baseball team. Our social activities, of which our banquet was a successful example, became wider; in fact, this, our sophomore year, has been a year of pleasant and successful scholastic, athletic, and social activities. There is but one shadow that darkened this year, and that was the untimely and accidental death of our classmate Leonard Frankenfield on January twentieth. It is indeed with regret that we must record the loss of a frank and pleasant friend and classmate. When we return, to enter upon the activities of our Junior year may the significance of our motto “Carpe Diem” — “Seize the day of opportunity” — always be with us to admonish us to that which is bigger, better, and more worthwhile, so that, as our Sophomore Calendar, and Football Programs were successes, all our enterprises may supercede everything that has gone before.

Speedily enough we were shown our place. We were burdened with weighty boxes of matches, labeled with green tags, helmeted with black visors boasting green plumes, lectured to “on Dante” and then turned loose. Thus there came into existence a new order. Many days had not passed before the ambitious and the brave gained individual distinction by their fearless heroism. Special badges of honor were awarded to these — badges of yellow and black for the heroes. However the medalists became at length so numerous that to receive one was no longer deemed an uncommon distinction and the infant organization turned to newer diversions. In the “Combat of the Pole” the contestants were very unevenly matched. Although vast hordes were poured against their ranks, the superior intelligence and dauntless audacity of the freshmen won the day and the victors rejoiced hilariously — too hilariously — for the victory of the Banner Scrap belonged to the Sophomores. At first sight this seems almost impossible but when one considers that the “striplings” came from the oldest families of the aristocracy and were unused to such inartistic and vulgar methods of warfare — the hurling of rotten apples and juicy potatoes was forbidden — one is not sur- prised. The treaty of peace was signed on “Stunt Day” when the vanquished were sent from the fort in tandem style and made to run the gauntlet. This was a truly rump-rending experience. The ferocious savages, drunk with delight, were armed with huge clubs which they plied with such murderous force as to almost fell the minds of their victims. Page One Hundred Thirty-two With this inhuman exploit the war ceased — for a time at least — and the freshman turned to more peaceful pursuits. There was brawn and muscle for the athletic squads, voices of beauty and quality for the Glee Club. “To the valiant belong the fair,” was never so clearly proved as the night of the “Freshman Hop”. All the beauty and wit of Allentown and its environs assembled at Mealey’s April 26th, and the event was the crowning glory of the freshman class. We parted in June — some to return, others to follow new forks in the road. For the first of these three more happy years at Muhlenberg remain, to the second belong both joy and regret; joy that they have come to the heart of Muhlenberg, and regret that they are leaving it now.

A new and illustrious page has been written; a record, never equalled, has been made. This tjear, above all others, has heralded our success- ful teams throughout everij quarter of the East, and we hope that their work has won some measure of appreciation among those who have followed their fortunes throughout the season. But we have not made success the goal of our desire. Rather matj the traditions of Muhl enberg inspire us to consider, “Not that we won or lost, but how we plaijed the game.” Page One Hundred Fifty-five Athletic Association Incorporated OFFICERS HOWARD S.

Page One Hundred Fifty-seven Pentathlon APRIL 29, 1921 Competing for the first time, Muhlenberg placed fifth in the annual Penn Relay Pentath ' on, and by the efforts of the most versatile athlete in her history defeated the tried entrees of America’s best known universities and colleges. Faced by former champions in each event Reinartz placed fifth in the broad jump, fourth in the javelin throw, fifth in the 200 meter run, sixth in the discus throw, and fifth in the 1000 meter run with a total count of 28. Arrayed against him were such men as LeGendre of Georgetown, Hamilton of Missouri, Bradley of Kansas, Bartels of Penn, Clapp of the Navy, and representatives of renown from Columbia, W. and J., Illinois, and George Washington University. The general sentiment was best voiced by a Muhlenberg alumnus who said, “This one afternoon’s work has done more to place Muhlenberg in the track and field limelight than any other complete track season.” This is said in no spirit of criticism regarding the rest of the track team for, as in most other sports, there must of necessity have been a high scorer, but the unique distinction and the general collegiate recognition can only be parelleled by a just appreciation of Mr. Reinartz’s work.

MILLER Muhlenberg again placed fifth in the annual Penn Relays held at the University of Pennsylvania. The Cardinal and Grey runners made a good showing against teams from the largest colleges and universities in the country. Kline, the first runner, whose real field is jumping and hurdling, surprised the spectators by making the first quarter mile in 5 2-10 seconds, which is better than the College record. He handed the pole to O’Connor who held the lead which Kline had secured. The next runner, Miller, ran a good race, but was hard pressed near the finish when he lost his position. Reinartz received the pole in the last place and started the last lap at a tremendous disadvantage. He finished the race in fifth place, having passed two men on the way. Page One Hundred Fifty-nine Paste One Hundred Sixty THE 1921 TRACK TEAM rack The Muhlenberg track team under the careful direction of Coach Martin C. Kleck ner, completed the most successful season of its history. Never before have the rivals of Muhlenberg lost as consistently as they lost this year. First this one, then that — Lehigh, Haverford, Gettysburg, and Brooklyn — one after the other fell before the victorious Cardinal and Grey track men. Muhlenberg began the season by defeating her old rival Lehigh, and despite the heavy downpour of rain which continued during the larger part of the afternoon, excellent times and marks were set in practically all the events. The Brown and White men had the advantage of training and conditioning which was evident in the distance events. Despite this, Reinartz and Kline were the high individual scorers of the meet, each piling up 24 points. The meet ended with Muhlenberg leading by 16 points, the score standing 64 to 48. In the Middle Atlantic A. A. meet at Johns Hopkins University the fortunes of Muhlenberg were in the hands of Kline, Reinartz, and Wills, and while they were only able to place seventh, they scored 10 points and broke college records in two events and tied another in a third. In this meet Reinartz was unfortunately injured, straining the muscles of his shoulder and back and slightly impairing his strength. The Haverford meet was an easy win for the Muhlenberg track men. Reinartz and Kline were consistent in winning a large number of points. In the third dual meet of the season Muhlenberg defeated the Gettysburg track team by the score of 65 to 49. This meet found brother arrayed against brother and each was worthy of his steel. Reinartz won both the 220 and the 100 yard dashes but his brother carried the Gettys- burg colors to a close second in each. The Central Pennsylvania Collegiate meet found Muhlenberg in third place, closely crowding the Gettysburg team which gathered 30 points and placed ahead of the Cardinal and Grey team by one point. Both Reinartz and Kline were handicapped by serious injuries, although “Corp” was the highest individual scorer. Muhlenberg officially opened its new track on June 11 by defeating Brooklyn Polytec. team by the score of 77 to 31. Reinartz as usual was the high scorer of the meet, making 28 points. After the first three events the result was never in doubt and, although the Brooklyn runners pre- sented keen competition, the Cardinal and Grey men worked consistently throughout. Page One Hundred Sixty-one Interclass Track Meet WEDNESDAY, MAY 11, 1921 The Freshmen won the annual interclass track meet, finishing with a total of 68 points. Their nearest competitors, the Juniors, made 20 points, while the Seniors and Sophomore classes each finished with 19. Despite the final victory of the first year men, there was close compe- tition in nearly all the events, especially in the hurdles where Shankweiler and Begel fought for victory in each event. Shankweiler won the 120-yd. high hurdles, but tied Begel in the 220’s, each finishing in 29 4-5 seconds, Shankweiler winning the toss for first place.

The courts are frequented more or less regularly by a large number of students representing all the classes. The inter-class matches always call out the best ability available in the respective groups and the interest between the classes runs high. Although the Athletic Association does not award the college letter to the members of the ’varsity tennis team, we see each season some lively try-outs for positions on the clay court aggregation. This year’s team was recruited very largely from the Senior class although several Juniors and under-classmen were runners-up in the elimination contest. The season as a whole was very satisfactory. 1922 Schedule April 29 — Lafayette at Easton May 2 — Ursinus at Collegeville May 11 — Moravian at Bethlehem May 24 — Moravian at Allentown May 26 — Drexel at Philadelphia June 3 — Haverford at Haverford Page One Hundred Sixty-five Baseball For the first time in several years, Muhlenberg will place a baseball team on the field under the direction of Coach A. P. “Dank” Schneider, who played baseball for four years at Lafayette and played on such other teams as that of Reading, the Majesties of Catasauqua, and spent one year on the Oakland, Cal., team. The announcement comes with un- usual enthusiasm on the part of every group on the campus. Last year especially, and for some time before that, each class had a base- ball team and it is from this material, together with that of this year’s new men, that the coach hopes to success- fully oppose some of the finest teams in the East. Since this is our first venture on the diamond in a number of years, the students and friends of our Alma Mater wish the team and its coach the best of success and hope that the baseball season will even excel the past football record.

September 24 — At Easton, Pa. Muhlenberg opened its most famous football season on March Field, Easton, September 24, when Coach Sutherland’s veterans handed us our worst defeat of the year. Considering our opponents and the fact that the Cardinal and Grey team was composed largely of new men, Muhlenberg rooters were optimistic. During the first few minutes of play the powerful Lafayette team showed their strength by crossing Muhlenberg’s goal twice. Throughout the whole game the Lafayette squad showed superiority in every respect except in the use of the forward pass. Only one of their five attempts at passing was successful, but that netted them a touchdown. In the hands of Crum, Muhlenberg’s versatile quarterback, the Cardinal and Grey passing was very successful ; Gebhard and Holstrom completed several well-thrown forwards, but were never able to get far with the ball. Muhlenberg was held scoreless during the entire game, Lafayette scoring 21 in the first, 7 in the second, 7 in the third, and 13 in the last periods respectively. Lehecka and Gazella scored most of their touch- downs. Generally, the Muhlenberg squad showed a lack of thorough team work. Several men got through for spectacular plays, and showed just what could be expected of them when they would be more evenly matched and a little more experienced. Paee One Hundred Sixty-nine Delaware 0 — Muhlenberg 2 1 October 1 — At Newark, Del. Displaying a decided improvement in team work and a pep and dash not evident in the first game of the season, the Cardinal and Grey eleven invaded Frazer Field Newark, Del., and defeated Delaware U. by a score of 21 to 0. The game was played on a warm day but the play was at times spectacular. A dashing aerial attack headed by Crum and Freed demoralized our opponents and resulted indirectly or directly in all of our touchdowns. After the first few plays Delaware was forced on the defensive and had little chance of winning. The Muhlenberg line held firmly and only one or two considerable gains were made around our ends. Muhlenberg kicked off to Delaware but soon received the ball. A line plunge by Fulcher, a forward, Crum to Daniels, and an end run by the quarterback resulted in our first touchdown. In the second quarter a froward to Freed placed the ball in position for another score. Gebhard pushed it over. In the third quarter Johnson ran thru the Blue and Gold secondary defense after completing a forward and scored the third and final touchdown. Fulcher kicked all the goals. The results of the game brought great joy to the men on the campus and convinced them that Muhlenberg would be represented by an exceptional team. Instead of being depressed over the crushing defeat at the hands of the Maroon and White collegians, the team showed a spirited comeback. Page One Hundred Seventy Bucknell 1 - ' Muhlenberg 0 October 8 — At Allentown, Pa. Against Bucknell on a wet field the Muhlenberg eleven showed to a large crowd that “Johnnie” Spiegel would produce the goods. Bucknell came here with their usual powerful team and had every intention and expecta- tion of rolling up a huge score. After a short and not entirely deserved flash they played second string to Muhlenberg and only the poor field prevented a possible Muhlenberg victory. On the kick off, Fulcher dropped the ball. Bucknell recovered it and in two or three plunges were over the goal for their first touchdown. A short time later, Crum’s poor punt was caught on our fifteen yard line and Bowser took it over. After that the Cardinal and Grey line, aided by the exceptional work of the secondary defense, stood Bowser and his cohorts on their heads. In the second half clever forward passing got the ball in position for several scores but at the opportune time a slippery ball or a mud-puddle halted the advance. The result however was gratifying to Muhlenberg and the thousand town followers that turned out for the game. It boosted our confidence in the team and paved the way for our future successes. Page One Hundred Seventy-one Lebanon Valleij 2 1 ' - ' -Muhlenberg 21 October 15 — At Allentown, Pa. The game with the Anneville collegians was one of the biggest athletic fiascos ever staged on Muhlenberg field. The visitors had little hope of winning but through considerable good fortune they were enabled to leave town with a 21-21 tie to their credit. It was at once obvious that ours was the best team on the field. On the second play Brewer broke thru, intercepted a forward and took the ball over for.our first score. Fulcher contributed the extra point. Muh- lenberg then received the kickoff and forwards, Crum to Gebhard and Crum to Freed resulted in our second touchdown. Fulcher kicked the goal. After being held for downs on the restart Lebanon punted. Gebhard was blinded by the sun and let the ball go by. A Lebanon player picked it up and carried the ball over for a touchdown. Nothing daunted Muhlenberg ploughed down the field for the third time and made the score 21-7. The second half was a see-saw affair, with both sides trying hard to increase their scores. Shortly after the half started, Whistler picked up a fumble and ran over for a touchdown. A little while later Cohen intercepted a forward and ran for Lebanon’s third and final score. From then on, despite heroic line plunging by Demoling and several attempts at field goals by Fulcher, Muhlenberg was unable to break the tie. The rest of the game and the final climax are well known history. Page One Hundred Seventy-two Gettysburg 1 3 -Mulilenberg 1 7 October 22 — At Gettysburg, Pa. After trailing behind a 13-0 score for the greater part of the first half the Cardinal and Grey team staged a sensational comeback on Nixon Field, Gettysburg, and salted the local eleven 17 to 13. The game was the big feature of Gettysburg’s alumni day and was witnessed by a record crowd who saw the Blue and Gold bow in defeat for the first time in years. Gettysburg started with a rush and swept Muhlenberg up the field, scoring twice with sensational trick plays. Things looked pretty blue for Muhlenberg until shortly after the start of the second quarter when a fumble by Britch gave Muhlenberg the needed opportunity. Crum carried the ball over after a neat run of 25 yards. Shortly after this a quick kick by Crum caught Britch napping and the ball rolled towards the goal line. Reese squashed the Blue and Gold half and Daniels dove over the two for a touchdown. From then on Muhlenberg halted all attempts of Gettys- burg to advance the ball. The defensive playing of Holstrom was the most spectacular he produced all season, notwithstanding the fact that he paired off with Emmanual, the star of the Gettysburg line. The second half was a repetition of the second quarter with Muhlen- berg line plunging and forward passing up the field with little opposition. Fulcher kicked a neat drop, but failed at the second after a poor pass. Towards the end of the game the locals uncorked a series of passes that put the spectators in a frenzy, but the game ended with the ball in Muhlen- berg’s possession. Page One Hundred Seventy-three Swarthmore 6 ' " - ' Mulilenberg 7 October 29 — At Allentown, Pa. The impossible was accomplished when the Cardinal and Grey eleven defeated the much praised Swarthmore team and put Muhlenberg on the map. The victory was scored before a great turnout of the town folk with heart breaking climaxes in the spectacular game. The student body was keyed up to the highest pitch of enthusiasm by a monster smoker the night before the game and looked forward to a well-fought game. The beginning of the game was spectacular. Muh- lenberg received the kickoff and advanced the ball some distance until a fifteen-yard penalty forced us to punt. After some success at line plays, Asplundh threw to Geiges on a trick play and the diminutive quarter went over for a touchdown. Earp failed to kick the goal. On receiving the ball Muhlenberg resorted to forward passing. Two passes, Crum to Holstrom and Crum to Fulcher, resulted in a touchdown by the latter. Fulcher added the goal and the point that eventually determined the victor. From then on Swarthmore relied on the toe of the mighty Asplundh to get the ball in position but clever runs by Demoling in re- ceiving their punts kept the game nip and tuck. In the third quarter Swarthmore had three downs to carry over the ball from the five-yard line and failed. A free kick likewise failed. Finally Yarnall was inserted into the game, apparently to win, judging from the roar from the Swarthmore cohorts. He seemed to justify their enthusiasm for on the first play he ran eighty yards placing the ball near our goal line. In eight downs — four of them while the ball was on Muhlenberg’s one-yard line — Swarthmore failed to break thru the valiant defense of the Cardinal and Grey warriors and the game was saved. Another free kick by Yarnall failed and the game ended with the ball in Muhlenberg’s possession. Weston and Fulcher were among the outstanding stars. Page One Hundred Seventy-four Lehigh 1 3 — Muhlenberg 1 4 November 5 — At Bethlehem, Pa. For the first time in the history of relations between Lehigh and Muhlenberg, a Muhlenberg student body invaded Lehigh’s stadium sure that their eleven would win that day. Their confidence was rewarded by the first victory of a Muhlenberg football team over Lehigh. The teams went on the field evenly matched. Muhlenberg’s first half exhibi- tion must have brought tears to the eyes of old grads and players for instead of being hurled back and scored on five or six times the Cardinal and Grey turned the tables. Lehigh was entirely on the defensive while their line was ripped by the powerful thrusts of our line plungers and bewildered when Holstrom and Daniels picked pass after pass out of the air — many times from the hands of the Lehigh players themselves. Crum’s accuracy was remarkable. Muhlenberg had three chances to score. Twice Fulcher missed drops, one a hard fifty-yard attempt and the other a few plays after he had been laid out. In the beginning of the second half Lehigh showed a sudden flash of power and Greer, Bessemer and Hardy plunged down the field for a touchdown. Shortly afterward an intercepted pass resulted in another score, for the enemy. Hardy missed the goal. With only eight minutes left to play, things looked blue for Muhlenberg. Then the fireworks started. Daniels received a pass and ran sixty-five yards thru the Lehigh backfield for our first score. Fulcher contributed the extra point. On fihe kick-off Crum kicked onside to Daniels who advanced the ball twenty- five yards. Crum forwarded to Holstrom who caught the ball while he lay on the ground. Another forward to Demoling put the ball on the one-yard line. Lehigh was penalized a half yard and Fulcher took the ball over on the next play. He kicked the goal, giving Muhlenberg the victory. The game was followed by the greatest demonstration seen on the streets of Allentown and by a huge parade, funeral and bon-fire the following Monday. Page One Hundred Seventy-five F ordliam 7 Muhlenberg 12 November 12 — At Allentown, Pa. Fordham came here with a team of veterans, and displayed one of the heaviest and most powerful lines that we bucked up against all season. The game was played on a muddy field and the teams spent a great deal of time slopping and slushing around on Muhlenberg field. The visitors’ backfield showed remarkable speed for such footing and early in the game, after a series of clever end-runs, Mahoney took the ball over for a touch- down. Nothing daunted, Muhlenberg’s crew returned the favors in short order. And after the ball had been twice worked up the field on forwards, Witt obliged with two off-tackle runs for forty yards apiece, resulting in twelve points for Muhlenberg. Fulcher failed at both tries for the extra point. The rest of the game was nip and tuck and uninteresting. Several times we worked the ball close to Fordham’s goal posts but lacked the punch to shove it over. The generalship at times was bad, as Fulcher was once called for a drop-kick from the five-yard line and Witt was not used to full advantage. The game disposed of Muhlenberg’s last strong rival and assured us of a successful season. In winning the game, the Cardinal and Grey eleven won a loving cup that had been offered to the winning team by Manager Maloy of the Wilmer and Vincent theatres in Allentown. Page One Hundred Seventy-six Albright 7 Muhlenberg 1 5 November 19, At Myerstown, Pa. In their final game of the season before nearly the whole town and vicinity, the Albright team was forced to bow in defeat before the superior Cardinal and Grey invaders. The score was 15 to 7. As was the case in many of the previous games the enemy scored first after surprising the Muhlenberg rooters present with an unsuspected power in attack. The Albright team worked like clockwork on the offensive and de- fensive and Saltern and Kingsley, their big line crackers pushed over a touchdown in short order. The Albright fans went wild with joy for they had been waiting for Muhlenberg all season and had spent a long time in preparation. The superior ability of the visitors was shown, however, by the ease with which they retaliated, scoring two touchdowns in rapid succession. Fulcher carried the ball over first, then Witt followed, com- pleting a forward pass. Late in the game Taggart and Knute Johnson squashed Kingsley back of the Albright line for a safety. In the second half Albright had little trouble in advancing the ball but the visiting team always braced inside the twenty-yard line and recovered the ball. On the offensive much effort was lost in line plunging since the Albright line hung on like bull-dogs. Page One Hundred Seventy-seven Ursinus 0 — Muhlenberg 68 November 24 — At Allentown, Pa. As we expected, Ursinus came here with a weak team and altho they put up a sturdy and valiant fight were no match for the heavier and more skilled Muhlenberg eleven. The day was a bad one, but a large crowd braved the rain to see the annual Thanksgiving day struggle between the two teams. They were treated to a series of spectacular runs by Witt, Crum and Gebhard who did not seem to mind the slippery field and inse- cure footing. The game was but a few minutes old when Witt ran nearly the whole length of the field for our first touchdown. From then on it was only a matter of how many points the Cardinal and Grey would score. In the third quarter Ursinus showed a flash of power against the scrubs and earned three first downs. They were however halted at the goal line. Towards the end of the game Coach Spiegel made numerous substitutions until every scrub had gotten into the game. The game was a fitting climax to a great season of victories. The success of the team put pep into the whole school and, with the presence of new blood, things look bright for the future. A fitting football banquet at the Hotel Allen put the finishing touches to the season and left us all waiting for the next in good spirits. F’aee One Hundred Seventy-c ' eht Men “M” JOHN E. SPIEGEL, Coach With “Johnnie” leading the boys, victory is sure. Here he is in his fighting togs with his determined jaw and serious face. “Johnnie” is a man whom the squad will stick to through thick and thin and during the last football season they did. Another page is devoted to the praises of this hero and here it is sufficient to show him at work. Clifford E. Brewer St. Louis, Mich. Height: 6 feet, 3 inches. Weight: 210 pounds. “Butch,” the heaviest man on the team, was a stonewall for defense and held down the Left Guard position of our ’21 crew. In Brewer we have the rare combination of a big man and speed. This fact proved the undoing of many of Muhlenberg’s opponents. Brewer tried out for several positions but finally found himself at Left Guard. Jay Birney Crum Palmyra High, 111. Height: 5 feet, 11 inches. Weight: 175 pounds. “Birney,” the Star out of the West, from his position at Quarterback engineered the team through the hardest season ever played by a Muhlenberg team. Through his passing, together with his excellent generalship, and pecu- liar intuition, “Birney” was a large asset in keeping the opponents on the short end of the score. Page One Hundred Seventy-nine “M” Men Fletcher Daniels Bailer Miltary Academy, Chattanooga, Tenn. Height: 5 feet, 9 inches. Weight: 155 pounds. “Danny,” the diminutive Right End from Chattanooga, won his laurels by running sixty-five yards through the entire Lehigh eleven and scoring Muhlenberg’s first touch- down. “Danny,” though small, made up the requirements in speed and was one of the brainiest men on the squad. Bernard Demoling, Washington High, Milwaukee, Wis. Height: 6 feet, 1 inch. Weight: 185 pounds. “Demoling,” the husky Full Back from Wisconsin, played a steady game throughout the season. When the team was on dangerous ground, Demoling would shoot the ball way down into the enemy’s territory. His work at safety was very commendable. Jacob E. Hartmann Peabody High, Pittsburg, Pa. Height: 6 feet. Weight: 175 pounds. “Jack,” the plucky Right Guard, won his way into the hearts of the Muhlenberg fans early in the season. His ability to make holes for the backfield paved the way for many of our touchdowns. Jack also was a bear on defensive work and his fleetness stopped our opponents’ backfield before they were started. Page One Hundred Eighty “M” Men Max Lee Fulcher Detroit Central, Mich. Height: 5 feet, 10 inches. Weight: 180 pounds. “Ugly,” the man with the educated toe, booted Muhlen- berg to victory in many a game. His uncanny judgment in placing the ball between the uprights won the plaudits of all. Max is a bear for work and many times when the spirit of the team was waning, his jolly companionship boosted the fighting spirit of the boys. Joseph Gebhard Blair Academy, Blairstown, N. J. Height: 6 feet. Weight: 166 pounds. “Joe,” our husky Fullback, made football history at Muhlenberg during the season of 1921. His wonderful offensive work combined with sterling defensive work was far above par. Those who were fortunate ' enough to see “Joe” play came away with the satisfaction of having seen a real star in action. George Holstrom Superior Normal, Wis. Height: 6 feet. Weight: 166 pounds. “George,” captain-elect of next year’s team, earned that right and title by his consistent work, good fellowship, and ability as a leader at the Left Wing of the eleven. George was the only man of the Muhlenberg machine who was given a position on Coach Spiegel’s All-American Team. George seemed to possess superhuman ability to grab passes from the air, and was one of the surest tacklers on the squad. Page One Hundred Eighty-one “M” Men Knute Johnson Flandreau High, S. Dakota Height: 6 feet, 1 inch. Weight: 180 pounds. “Knute,” the big boy from South Dakota, entered his name in the Hall of Fame by a seventy-yard run against Albright. Blocking a punt in his own territory, Knute picked it up and ran for seventy yards before he was downed. He played a good game at Right Tackle and broke up the opponents’ plays in great fashion. Paul D, O’Connor Allentown Prep., Pa. Height: 5 feet, 11% inches. Weight: 160 pounds. “Okey,” our gritty Center, alternated with Reese at this position. Although he was light in weight, “Okey” was one of the most aggressive men on the team and in this respect led the other men into the fray with a never-say-die spirit. “Okey” has a few years left in which to play on the grid- iron at Muhlenberg and should prove to be a big man in the coming season. Gomer S. Rees Greensburg High, Pa. Height: 5 feet, 11 inches. Weight: 180 pounds. “Gomer,” our fast Center, played a stellar game. Gomer won fame during the Gettysburg game. It was because of his fast work that we won from the boys of the battlefield. Gomer is a big man and yet very fast on his feet and he aided materially in stopping the opponents’ rushes. Page One Hundred Eighty-two “M” Men William J. Skean Pottstown High, Pa. Height: 5 feet, ll ' i inches. Weight, 185 pounds. “Buck” played at Right Guard during the past season. Though he was not flashy, Buck was always there and could be counted on in a tight pinch. He is a brother of the famous Skean who was Captain of Muhlenberg’s star team of 1913, and there is no doubt but that Buck will carry the fame of the family farther in the history of football. Austin L. Taggart Norristown High, Pa. Height: 6 feet, 2 inches. Weight: 198 pounds. “Os,” the Norristown giant, this year won his letter for the third time in football at Muhlenberg. Although handi- capped by injuries received during the early part of the season, “Tag” showed the stuff that football men are made of by steadily plugging away. Paul D. Weston Bethlehem Prep., Pa. Height: 6 feet. Weight: 180 pounds. “Jack,” Allentown’s leading football product, played a wonderful game at Right Tackle. Jack’s unerring tackles made the opposing team lose many a yard. Jack also dis- tinguished himself on the offensive by making large gaps in the opponents’ line. Pace One Hundred Eighty-three “M” M en c? Harold P. Whitenight Allentown High, Pa. Height: 6 feet. Weight: 186 pounds. “Whitey,” the Left Tackle of the team, played a game that was second to none in the football world. His work in breaking up interference was the best ever seen on a football field. “Whitey” was Acting-Captain during the past season and the boys put their full confidence in his good judgment. Archie Witt Detroit Western, Mich. Height: 5 feet, 7 inches. Weight: 185 pounds. “Archie.” our stellar line plunger, is recognized as one of the best backfield men in the East. Handicapped by injuries, Archie did not stand out until we met Fordham. His ability in carrying the ball through the opponents has never been equaled on the local gridiron. Receiving a punt in the center of the field, Archie ran through an entire team for a touchdown. Paul Freed Allentown High, Pa. Height: 5 feet, 8 inches. Weight: 160 pounds. “Bus,” the Allentown High star, proved to be a big man on the football team, alternating at End positions. “Bus” is a sure tackier and struck terror into the hearts of the opponents whenever they tried an end run. Freed is a first-year man at Muhlenberg and much can be expected from him in his remaining years on the gridiron. Page On? Ilur.dred Eighty-four Coacli John E. Spiegel John E. Spiegel, who was not very well known to us a year ago, has become very dear to the hearts of Muhlenberg supporters through his successful piloting of last year’s football team. “Johnny” and his boys have justly brought fame to Muhlenberg through their efforts on the gridiron. “Johnny’s” logic has touched the hearts of the boys who worked for him so that they worked as only true lovers of Muhlenberg could. Heart and soul in the game, — one hundred per cent put in and one hundred per cent taken out — is the motto in- stilled into the boys by “Johnny.” The fact that Spiegel has signed up for a three year contract brings joy to the aspirants for foot- ball glory and to all the friends of Muhlenberg. Spiegel’s personality has not only earned him a host of friends among students here but also among the local fans in general. His many admirers are wishing him success for the coming years. When the call for candidates comes for next season Sp iegel will have a wealth of material, and competition ' for places will be keen. Most all the “M” men of last season will be ready for battle, and these together with the new men should make a record football team for Muhlenberg.

The Muhlenberg team of last year had been pretty well broken up and it was neccessary to lay afresh the groundwork for a fast team. Only a few of the former team men were still at college and it was recognized that around these few veterans the new team must be built. During the first half of the schedule it was plain that the players were a little strange to one another, that nobody knew exactly “what the other fellow was going to do.” As soon as this feeling wore off, and the team was beginning to work together like a machine, then Muhlenberg began to carry everything before it. After losing a majority of the games in the first part of the season, the team struck its stride and won every one of the last eight games on the schedule. Muhlenberg got away with a good start in the first game, winning from Ursinus in a closely contested struggle by the score of 29 to 24. It was nip and tuck throughtout the entire game and only the fine offensive work of the Muhlenberg team made victory possible in the last few minutes of play. In the U. of P. game the Cardinal and Grey quintet met one of the finest teams in the country and sustained one of the worst defeats of the season. The visitors made several dangerous spurts, but never seriously threatened the leadership of the Pennsylvania crew. The local team bumped into a stone wall when they met Lafayette on December 14 and were beaten by the score 33 to 10. From the first it was apparent that the Maroon and White team was much the stronger, although Muhlenberg fought back every minute of the game. Lehigh in some measure avenged the past football defeat by defeating the Cardinal and Grey team to the tune of 33 to 27. Although defeated the local collegians put up a hard game against the Brown and White quintet. When the second half began, Crum threw quite a scare into the Lehigh ranks by making three field goals in rapid succession. But the team couldn’t hold this stride and Lehigh held her lead co the end. The Muhlenberg five again defeated Ursinus on their home floor by the score of 27 to 24. The game was hotly contested throughout and when the final whistle blew the score stood 24-24. A final period was decided upon and in those five minutes a foul shot and a neat basket from the middle of the floor decided the game in Muhlenberg’s favor. The next four games were successive defeats for the Cardinal and Grey. The team invaded New York, playing C. C. N. Y., the Crescents, and the Army. Muhlenberg gave these teams a hard run, but was defeated by each of them. In the next game Gettysburg avenged the recent football defeat at the hands of Muhlenberg, defeating the Cardinal and Grey five by the score of 30 to 18. In the first half the visitors had the game entirely their own way, the period ending with the score of 22 to 8. In the second half the Muhlenberg team steadied itself and by consistent work made the scoring an even break, the game ending with the score standing 30 to 18. The next game, with Moravian, was one of the best played contests of the season when the Muhlenberg team, in spite of the fact that the evening before Moravian had beaten the strong Gettysburg five, came through with a 17 to 8 victory. Against Penn Jr. Varsity the team showed the best form of the season and altho they lost by a close margin showed promise of finally getting under way. The team proved this by “copping” the Bucknell game by the score of 39 to 27. Spectacular play by Holstrom and Taggart sent the crowd in a frenzy. At P. M. C. the team was a bit off color and hit a snag. After holding the opponents and getting a lead of about ten points we were beaten out by a determined rally on the part of the cadets. The quintet showed consistent team work in defeating Temple at Philadelphia, it was the first of a long string of victories. Pace One Hundred Ninety At Delaware the Cardinal and Grey five pulled a comeback after trailing in the first half and nosed the Newark five by a score of 22 to 19. Now came one of the most important games of the season. Swarthmore came up with the intentions of avenging their loss of the football game and were disappointed and surprised at the reception our men gave them. The final score 29 to 12 tells the story of Muhlenberg’s superiority. A second game with Moravian tacked on the schedule at their request resulted in a hard earned victory for the local five. The scrubs played in the greater part of the game and showed up exceptionally well. The final score was 25 to 19. With but two more games facing them and the necessity of winning both to insure a successful season, the quintet invaded Haverford and emerged after a gruelling game with their opponent’s scalps in their belts. All eyes were now turned to the Lafayette game. Before the record crowd of the season Muhlenberg basketball again spilled the dope by defeating the much heralded Maroon and White crew from Easton. The game was nip and tuck thruout but with all of our men hitting on all cylinders and disp’aying unexcelled team work the invaders were forced to bite the dust. Every man played his best game of the season and, altho we trailed by one point at the end of the first period, a determined drive soon placed Muhlenberg on top to stay. This was the culmination of the most successful basketball season experienced by a Muhlenberg five for several years. Page One Hundred Ninety-one Cheer Leader ROBERT S.

THEODORE BENZE PERCY F. REX IRA S. FRITZ ROBERT S. OBERLY Page Two Hundred Two -CUE CLUB- B T TAKES some organizations a long time to get started, but when they do — watch them go. This happened to be the case with the football team of this year and also with the basketball team. They seemed to have a little hard luck in the beginning of the season, but they ended up by bringing home the bacon when they defeated some of the big teams in the East. Now the same can be said of the Glee Club this season. This singing organization also had a few hard rows to hoe shortly after it started out to entertain its many friends in the Eastern part of the state. But these little crooks were straightened out, and the club finished their season perhaps stronger and better than any previous club representing Muhlen- berg. Perhaps never before in the history of the Glee Club were there so many changes made in the personnel of the club as there were this season. The club finished with no less than ten new faces, men who were not on the club when it gave its first concert. But with a little extra work and with the directing of Professors Brown and Marks, the Club was whipped back into shape, and gave a series of concerts after Easter that has not been equalled. When our football team won over Lehigh, we swelled with pride. Page Two Hundred Three Now how would you feel if our Glee Club put it over a Harvard or Yale Club? Well, that is just what happened. When the club sang in Sunbury, a Harvard graduate who heard the concert paid our club that compliment. Now, we wouldn’t think of taking the opinion of one man, but the fact he is a graduate of Harvard himself puts a little more force back of the statement. And then too, he is a man who has heard all the clubs in the East and he claims Muhlenberg’s musical club to be the best. As the old saw has it, “Variety is the spice of Life.” If this is true the concerts must have been flavored to suit the best tastes, for variety was paramount in this season’s program. There was music to suit everybody including classical, humorous, operatic, and sentimental. The quartette rendered several lullabies and humorous selections that always pleased their audiences. Then there were piano and vocal solos, the usual skit, a number of selections by the mandolin club, and a vaudeville act called “Vaudeville on Trial.” The skit, “When A Man Marries,” writted by W. Bruce Macintosh, ’19, made even a greater hit than the one of last year, which was con- sidered one of the best ever put on by the club. It pertained to college life, and gave each character the opportunity to show his ability before the footlights. Mr. Mattson who has done considerable work on the stage, scored a big hit as Uncle George, and too much cannot be said of Mr. Summ, who played the part of Gladys, Jimmie’s wife,- with all the grace necessary to play such a part. A great deal of credit must also be given to Mr. Lantz, who took the part of Jimmie; Mr. Mosser as Archie, Jimmie’s room mate; Mr. Koch and Mr. Sowers, two brothers who have their troubles as freshman and sophomore; and Mr. Stowell who represents the dean of the college. They all put the life into the act that is necessary for a real college skit. The solo work was another big feature of the entertainment. Mr. Winkelman’s vocal work always pleased his audience, and also that of Mr. Zieber who sang an operatic number in the vaudeville act. Mr. Bennyhoff’s work at the piano was of the highest character, and no matter what kind of an audience he appeared before, “Benny” worked just as hard as possible to put it across. For a time it looked as tho the club was to be minus a mandolin club this season — something almost incredible. For at the beginning of the season Mickley, Ritter, and O’Brien of the famous Fantasy Six accom- panied the club on several of its trips. But finally some good material was found and added to the club, and a real mandolin organization was formed. Winkelman with his violin and Graul with the Saxophone added some- thing that just seemed to put the finishing touches to it. In every concert the mandolin club scored a decided hit and was called back time and time again to give encores. The act of Mattson and Koch in “Vaudeville on Trial” was one of the Page Two Hundred Four biggest numbers on the program. It was a real crossfire act with new jokes that kept the audience going from start to finish. Then Mattson gave several impersonation speeches which always went across and showed his ability in stage work. Getting down to brass tacks and hair pins, it is the singing of the chorus that either makes or breaks a club. In this case it happened to be the former, for a finer chorus would be difficult to find. Every tenor and bass in the club has had more on less experience in chorus or choir work before, and with the training of Professor Marks added, they were able to render some of the most difficult numbers in a way that made a name for them. Too much credit cannot be given Prof. Brown, dramatic director, and Prof. Marks, faculty director of the club. No matter how much talent there is in a club, it depends on the proper training and directing as to whether or not the club will be able to bring forth that talent in the right way. Professors Marks and Brown gave the boys this training, which enabled them to use their talents and to give the public the best concert that was ever put on by a Muhlenberg Glee Club.

FOREWORD W E have included in this part ol the hook a calendar ol the events ol the past year, the products ol several embryo poets and dramatists, and much hard ( ? ) labor. As Stevenson said: 1 A man may send you six sheets ol letter paper covered with most entertaining gossip; or rjou may pass hall an hour pleasantly, perhaps prolitabhj, over an article ol his; do you think the service would be greater il he had made the manuscript in his heart s blood, like a compact with tire devil ?” This is neither gossip, nor written with our heart’s blood; but il you have a good imagination, it may be profitable to you, dear reader. Page Two Hundred Thirty-one From time immemorial tlie annual gridiron clash be tween the teams ol Lehigh University and Muhlenberg has marked the high point in athletic rivalry in these institutions. This habit ol looking daggers” at one an- other was as much in evidence on the grandstands in which were seated the student body and followers ol the rival teams as it was on the gridiron between the moleslin clad warriors themselves. Page Two Hundred Thirty-two Portraying the tragedy of the mighty Lehigh giant who, being much puffed up and vain, did return to earth with a thud on the occasion of a defeat by the valiant team from Muhlenberg.

TIME: Right after the Swarthmore game. Enter three students. First Student: Second Student: Third Student: First Student: Second Student: Third Student: Such stubborn play I’ve never seen before. They held on that thin fateful strip of turf As if their lives and honor ’pended on it. And all to Muhlenberg’s great glory too ; For never such victory graced our teams of old. Eight downs they had, now mark you, eight attempts, To cover but that single yard to win. But our eleven as tho they were all By single purpose governed (all for one) Disputed with such strong tenacity That Swarthmore’s hearts did fail them. Why forsooth, And ’t would have taken stronger hearts than those With much more savage onslaught in the pinch To break that line, so rigid did it stand. Let’s go to praise our men, and then prepare For various celebrations. Aye, indeed But I’m so sore and weak, so badly spent, From such a strenuous afternoon, as ’twere, (What tho I was but rooting in the stands), That I would fain compose myself in rest. But I am with you. Come! Let’s do our best. (Exeunt) Scene II. PLACE: Down town. TIME: Late that night. Enter President, just returning from a trip. Coach Spiegel, Mr. Afflerbach. President : Afflerbach : Coach : President : Afflerbach : Coach : The first was Gettysburg ; then Swarthmore fell. Well, well, by Jupiter we’ll have Lehigh too. What do you say to that? Why that foul giant Weltering in his sweaty confidence Would well awake, would well arouse himself. ’Tis true. We’ll do as David did of old And rid us of this monster to our east. We’ll enter fearlessly into his lair And if our ’leven fail to lay him low. By Jupiter, ’twill be to my surprise. And our disgrace. How’s that? Why yes — ’tis true. Enter Thomas Lantz.

No, what? ’Tis said that Glick and all his mighty crew xAre even now in anxious consultation As to their state in this our coming struggle And on the news from Muhlenberg, his men Are scurrying like ants in preparation. And well they may. My men have like prepared. ’Tis rumored also that the wagering In town and all vicinity has dropped From fully three to one to even coin. There will be sorrow and despair, by Jove, In Bethlehem next Saturday eve. ’Tis true. And no school for a week, I’ll bet my hat. Away, thou villain base, we’ll see to that. (Exeunt).

Tho heaven and hell conspire against us, yet We’ll o’ercome all obstacles and rise Amidst the corpses of what once were men And giving voice to all the world around Defy the heavens to damn us if they will When we have laid foul Lehigh in the mud. Could I but catch that leathern oval once Could I but feel it nestled in my arms ’Twould take a corps of soldiery or more To keep me from the goal and victory. Well said, brave fellows : thus shall we succeed And win the day e’en tho it be our last. Now go you both to bed. May valiant dreams Attend you and augment your spirit. (Exit). There is a man I fain would have as friend. Above the rest. For he’ll stick to the end. Scene IV. PLACE: Arcade. TIME: Early Sat. A. M. Two roommates. Today’s the day! Both joy and gloom shall reign. The me o’er us, the other Bethlehem For Muhlenberg shall Lehigh beat and show To all the world around that we are more Than hitherto an obscure street car sign. What noise is that which sudden strikes my ear. I know not of it, let us wait and see. Perchance it is some news from Lehigh’s camp. Enter students, shouting. Such villainous practice. Such gall, such nerve. Rumhounds, bootleggers, tea dancers, imbeciles. What’s this ? What ! Have they abducted Crum ? Look ! No sooner had the beauteous rising sun Heralded the break of this great dav. Than it uncovered this disgraceful sight. Some unknown gang from Lehigh postered well The campus, and did paint the place around. signs) " Muhlenberg can never Lehigh beat” - " Tho Johnnie Spiegel come from Lafayette, It will avail you naught for you shall lose.” — " Prepare your lessons well for this next week For school aplenty you will surely have.”- - “The annual drubbing fifty six to naught.” — Now will we rise with all our might and power With all our hosts descend on Bethlehem. With all our stored up spirit in us. And crush this haughty giant like a peanut. E’er this day’s sun has set we’ll see, I swear That giant, dwarf-like, creeping on the ground. And spurned by all, a vi ctim of his own conceit. Let us on to Bethlehem. I have all confidence in our men. Yea! all of us on to Bethlehem. (Exeunt, shouting). Page Two Hundred Thirty-six A solemn funeral procession witli a line ol mourners several citrj squares in length passed down Hamilton Street from Muhlenberg College to the citrj square on Mondarj Evening, November 7, 1921. A funeral oration was delivered after the courtage arrived at the square over the lifeless efigq of the vanquished Lehigh football team. Thousands of Citizens attended the obsequies.

PLACE: Bethlehem. Lehigh’s campus. TIME: Late Sat. A. M. Enter Lehigh students. Coach Glick. They say that Muhlenberg will come today With hopes and expectations great to win. With hope and expectation gone they’ll leave us. I well remember one short year ago, When e’en such hope and such expectation Availed them naught. And we did beat them up Was ’t fifty four or fifty six to naught? Two points or more or less, what’s that. Today we shall exceed that mark by far And teach these mulish pigmies what it means To dare Dame Fortune’s chance beyond their power. Or else be called base craven infidels. The mule oft has a kick in him they say Ask Swarthmore’s team for they can vouch to that. Were’t not to supervise when we’re ahead The placing of the sundry substitutes, I’d fain see U. of P. play Lafayette, And let Pazzetti take this minor matter. Ah well, let’s go, and let the matter rest. (Exeunt, except first). And yet it seems to me that all this talk Of inequalities had best been left To others. I have heard strange rumors late. I have strange fears — strange fears! I’ll wait. (Exit). Act II. Scene I. PLACE: Lehigh stadium. In the stands. TIME: Before the game. Students and spectators. Lo here comes Muhlenberg’s band with spirit high. A handful when compared to Lehigh’s crew. ’Tis true, but often have I seen them thus Tho small in numbers, small in outward show, Accomplish what some mightier hosts have failed And well outcheer the greater force from Lehigh. Out-cheer, you say? Aye. And tho it seems like fool’s advice, I am advised that more’ll be done today, And Lehigh sent beneath the yoke at last. Well, let us see. Why, hark ! What noise they make. Indeed and it does well confound my senses. But I assure you it’s but a beginning. Enter Teams. The team ! the team ! Behold the team. They come. The lozenges ! the lozenges ! Quick the cough lozenges. (Loud cheering etc.) Scene II. PLACE: The gridiron. TIME: At the start of the game. Referee, captains, coaches. Heads or tails shall it be. Let some one call, Heads I say. Heads it is : McCarthy make your choice, And off the field with you, you coaches there. (Coaches exeunt.) A team that won’t be beaten can’t be beaten. And that’s well said and bravely spoken too. Now let us meet this great emergency, Combat all crises with fearlessness, Prevent all advances with firmness, And fell that giant with all our unity.

Come Danny, Max and Joe, let’s go and win. Now must I ’gain extend my mighty hand, Like a huge bear against a pack of wolves. And play awhile, perchance, with this wan crew, Who yearly seek and yearly are dispersed. — I wish ’twere over tho. — I’d rather sleep — I’ll crush them quick and then to supper go. (They line up for the kick off.) Scene III. PLACE: The stands. TIME: During the first half. Spectators, students of Muhlenberg, Cheer leader, Alumni. The cardinal band is now in consultation, It must bode ill, I trow, for that brown bear, That swaggering monster with that foolish grin. — And what is that new roar that lately comes From Muhlenberg’s throats? Let’s listen, there it is. — A team — that won’t — be beaten — can’t — be beaten. That’s it. Their spirit is commendable indeed. — The game commences — now we’ll witness strife. (Lapse of a few minutes.) The Lehigh giant is foiled in his attempts, He sickly grins and kicks. ’Tis Muhlenberg’s ball. Didst see that marvelous forward clip the air, And that one like an arrow in it’s flight? (Muhlenberg gains rapidly.) Didst see that crunching blow that De.noling gives, That crumbling Lehigh line as Gebhard plunges, And how that quarter fast eludes the ends. Another pass ! I wot not how they do it. They’re in Lehigh’s grounds. The giant seems to wake — (Fulcher attempts a drop kick.) An ill attempted kick that was by Fulcher, Full fifty yards it sped; both straight and true. But the distance was impossible. Again has Lehigh failed and kicked away ; Now do I understand why Swarthmore failed. Our valiant men are made of solid steel. (Muhlenberg again nears the goal.) Why Muhlenberg’s again advanced the ball! Such doings are unnatural. Look! he’s hurt! Who? ’Tis Fulcher — but he stays brave youth. (Time out.) They’re thirty yards away, another drop. Why he’s missed again ! What’s wrong ! He’s just been hurt. Such a game, naught to naught, Why, men, The pigmy beards the lion in his den. (End of half.) Scene IV. I I PLACE: Muhlenberg’s quarters. TIME: Between the halves. Enter coach, players, attaches. Ill fought my men. Thrice did you near the goal And fail to take the pigskin oval over. Yet Lehigh’s team has never had a chance The giant’s far outplayed today methinks.

He’s as Whilhelm in Napoleon’s suit of blue. I want no playing tag in this next half No more Alphonso Gaston repartee You should be now full seven points ahead. By George, the substitutes could play as well. We’ll get him next half! He shall rue the day. I’ll wager he’ll remember it alway. (Exeunt) Scene V. PLACE: Lehigh’s quarters. TIME: The same. Glick, players, etc. What kind of foolishness is this I see. I am confounded for some unknown force Is hidden in that motley crew of grey. My togs they smother me. At first they seemed not so. If I could but find out just how they do it. I’ve heard strange sayings of a Muhlenberg spirit, That bolsters up a man to unknown powers. And urges him to deeds miraculous They say forsooth that it can not be beaten. Bosh ! We’ll be more serious in the strife. They’ll get the worst defeat of their whole life. (Exeunt). Scene VI. PLACE: The Muhlenberg sidelines. TIME: Second half. Coach, substitutes, students, cheer leaders. Now Lehigh is full sore and does advance. The Muhlenberg line is weakening — how it gives. And yet, it seems the giant gains most on forwards, For thus he wins his downs when else has failed. They’re on the five yard line. As Sw arthmore was Yea, but they’re over. The score is six to naught. I fear the worst. But they do fail to kick the goal by far Watch Muhlenberg rally as she’s done before. (Enter, President and Graduate Manager.) The team is strange to Muhlenberg and new. I wonder if they’ve lost our mighty spirit. ‘Twould be best said they have it not as yet To that degree to which we older minds Have long attained. I would something be done To bolster up their courage in the fight. I have a messenger, a sprite called “pep” Whom often have I summoned in a pinch. Can he do aught? By Jove that’s it; now mark you well, my friends, Five hundred sons of ’berg are in the stands, Each heart o’erflowing with such spirit As does move the world at times. Now send you “pep” to gather all that force And fly with it unto that loyal crew Proportion it among their various selves As they do need it. Then, by Jove, we’ll win. Tis said and it is done. Behold I go. And fly as fast you can for even now I do perceive an intercepted pass Has given Lehigh still another goal. Thirteen to naught, eight minutes left to play. It is impossible, I fear, to win. I’ve an idea what will win the game for us I’ll place this garter round my megaphone, This ’lastic ring of Cardinal and Grey, Donated by yon enthused damsel fair Unto our noble cause. It’s what we need To spur our men and give them victory. I’ll fear not for I’ve been at Gettysburg And after Swarthmore — we yet shall win. A team that won’t be beaten can’t be beaten.

Do you do your best. And your contention prove that South beats West. Scene VIII. PLACE: The sidelines. TIME: The same. Same as Scene VI. A beauteous forward. Daniels has it fast. And look he’s passed right thru the Lehigh force As water thru a sieve. He nears the goal. There Rote approaches. Daniels does straight arm him And thus avoiding him does cross the line. A marvelous touchdown. It’s thirteen to seven. Two minutes more. Let the impossible be done. On the kickoff, Daniels does gather in the ball ; An onside kick ! It was a beauty to ! He’s run it forward fully twenty yards or more. A team that won’t be beaten can’t be beaten Now’s the time to win. I hope Crum forwards. A lengthy forward pass which Holstrom there, Pulls in to him while he is on the ground. Such tension. They are poised there for a plunge. (Fulcher carries the ball over.) By Jupiter, the ball is over. A touchdown, by Jove, a touchdown. And Fulcher kicks the goal. The whistle and it is over — we have won. (Enter students singing. Players on their shoulders.) Song: Muhlenberg was Muhlenberg when Lehigh was a pup. Muhlenberg is Muhlenberg while Lehigh’s growing up. We have no use for the dirty crew. Who say they come from Lehigh U. For Muhlenberg was Muhlenberg when we beat Lehigh up. —CARL A. CASSONE, ’23. Finis. NEOLIN BETTER THAN LEATHER Wear Neolin Soled shoes and get real satisfaction.

TIME: An October afternoon. PLACE : Muhlenberg College. The first weeks of confusion and bewilderment are over: Dr. Brown has delivered his address on “Dante,” the Freshmen have shaved their trouser cuffs and elected Winkelman their President. This particular P. M. they are about to engage with their adversaries, the Sophomores, in the traditional pole fight. A large crowd has gathered to witness the combat. Dr. Haas (petting his goatee) : “We boast a Freshman class of unusual ability this year, Doctor. They have given stars to the football squad and excellent talent to the Glee Club.” Dr. Ettinger (slowly): “Well, I guess they aren’t so stupid. I’m pretty fond of the boys myself. I — why they’ve started already.” Crowd: “Hurrah, hurrah, the freshies have seized three of the ropes.” Miss Lee: “Oh, I do hope Winkie’s men win. They just must win.” Crowd: “Pull freshies, pull.” (The shouting increases, the excitement grows more intense as the pole sways to and fro). Knauss : “By jove, the sophs have it — no they don’t. It’s the freshies.” Mann : “Look out, there is goes, ’25 wins.” The Crowd : “Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah.” Miss Lee: “Oh, I’m so glad. But I knew, I just knew Winkie’d win.” Act II. TIME: A November Night, 1:15 A. M. PLACE : A room in the dorms. Seltzer, Wagner, Preuss and Frey are returning from the freshman banquet, held under cover of the glorious Lehigh victory Wagner: “Gee, it’s dark as the Stygian caves here in the corridor.” Frey (cordially): “Shut up, won’t you? You’ll bring all the sophs down on us with your Lyceum cave stuff.” Seltzer: “When I think that the sophs were having their spread at the same time and place as we were having ours, I — ” Wagner: “There I’ve found the hole at last.” (The door opens, the light flashes on and reveals the room in utter chaos. Dismantled beds, chairs, rugs, pennants, clothes, etc., occupy a jumbled heap in the center of the floor). Seltzer: “Upon my soul!” Wagner (with a shriek of despair): “My encyclopedia — they have devastated my encyclopedia.” Frey : “It’s the work of those sophs.” Preuss: “That’s why they left so early — ” Wagner: “Oh my encyclopedia -they have torn the X’s out of my encyclopedia. By — ” Frey : “Yes, to come here and do this. I’ll be — ” Preuss (hastily) : “Come, let us pray.” Act III. TIME: Some months later. PLACE: The Chapel. The Freshmen under their new leader have grown most aggressive. Plans for a dance, wrestling and baseball teams are in progress. The Sophomores petrified by the sudden change in spirit are attempt- ing a ‘ ' Reform Movement.” Stowell : " As president of the Sophomore class, I announce a new group of freshmen regulations. These will be printed in green — since we are too poor to do them in red — and distributed among your class. In the meantime I will acquaint you with them.” (He enumerates to the approving applause of the horde). Brath: “As president of that august body — of course, I refer to the Freshman class — I denounce those regulations.” Mob: “Down, Freshmen, down.” Freshmen : " Shut up, yourselves. Go on Brath.” Brath (courageously I : “According to Article 10 of the constitution such a restriction may go into effect only with the approval of the whole student body — I — ” Mob (ferociously) : " Down fellow, down. We’ll get you yet.” ' Freshmen : “We stand by him.” Stowell (in alarm) : “The meeting is dismissed.” The mob sulks out amid the clamor of the Freshmen, who are shouting: “ ’Ray for Brath — down with the Sophs.” —WILLIAM B. BUTZ, JR., ’25. Page Two Hundred Forty-seven The Kpic of ’23 Should you ask me whence this story, How I ever came to write it, Why I did not let some other, Who was more skilled in composition Who knew more about the technique And the art of story telling. Write this little bit of nonsense; I should answer, I should tell you : It was really thrust upon me. Just in fun some one suggested I should write an epic story. Telling all about my classmates And the incidents which happened While as students we were living Under college regulations. You who sometimes in the twilight Sit and dream of some far country, Where you often long to travel, Just to see the famous places ; When some great event has happened, There you stand awhile and ponder. Wholly lost in adoration Of the beauty of some trifle, Which has set your mind to wond’ring Whether you are not deluded. When you see a thing so touching. Come out of your dreams and musings Here to read this simple story. Telling all about our mishaps. It was in the fall of Nineteen That we first came here as students, Came to get more education. Came to fill our minds with wisdom. Some of us came with forebodings Of the life that was to follow, Having read somewhere of hazing And of Freshman regulations. We soon found, much to our sorrow. We were subject to traditions And to rules which were distasteful, Some of which we disregarded. ’Twas not long before we found out There was no such thing as hazing. What it was I cannot tell you ; That’s a secret of the Council, One that will not be revealed Even though you seek it often. Here at college strange things happen. Johnnie Trout will surely tell you Many things that seem like fiction, If you only stop to ask him. He will tell you how, as Freshmen, We won glory in the pole fight, How we failed to keep the banner From the clutches of the Sophomores, How the football game escaped us By a narrow six-point margin, And of other things that happened While we were but lowly Freshmen. Henry Alderfer will tell you All about the stunts on Stunt Day : How the nose can push a penny, How it feels to get a ducking Where the body is most tender, How a paddle best is wielded ; Of these things he has the knowledge He may tell you if you ask him. But we most excelled as athletes ; Here is where we gained our glory. How we carried off the track meet Which was held between the classes, I will let another tell you. Bennyhoff, the champion athlete, Is best fitted for this duty. He will tell you of the prowess Of the ones participating, How at basketball and football We came off with colors flying ; Of these things Luther will tell you. I must not forget the training We received in army tactics ; How we marched about like soldiers, How we learned the art of shooting, And the art of rifle-cleaning. “Captain” Fritz knows all the details And will tell them to you gladly, If you only will but ask him. Then there was our Freshman banquet, Which took place one night in winter, Where we had a jolly repast Till the midnight hour sounded. When we traveled back to college, Wondering if the wily Sophomores Had disturbed the rooms of any. We partook of wet reception Just before we gained the arcade. And when to our rooms we hurried, We found as we had expected All our rooms were topsy-turvy. Not until the early morning Did we get a chance at sleeping. So it happened that the next day Many classes were forgotten. If you still wish further details, Just apply to Ira Zartman. But one of the most exciting And distressing things that happened Was the fire which was started Somewhere in West Berks’ dominions. Nearly everyone was sleeping, When the call of “Fire” sounded. It was in the dead of winter And the snow lay deep around us, When the fire-call resounded. Everyone woke from his dreaming And made haste to leave the building ; Many who had rooms in West Berks, Left by climbing out the windows. When at last the fire squadrons, After much fatiguing labor, Got the engines near the building, Flames were shooting ever higher. But at last by valiant fighting Every flame and spark was conquered. Those made roomless by the fire Lodged with some more lucky student ; So the night passed and the morning Showed the charred and smoky traces Of the fire’s recent visit. Anything that I’ve forgotten Can be learned from Stirling Schmoyer. And in that first eventful period, Someone somehow got a notion That our class had good debaters. Men who had the art of proving Page Two Hundred Forty-eight FRANKLIN MOTOR CARS The most comfortable car to ride in The easiest and safest car to handle The most economical car to operate The car that is freest from trouble And can cover most miles in a daij Light, Flexible, Air Cooled No Water Backed bvj 20 Years of Constant Development Penn Motor Company 1313-1319 Linden Street Allentown, Pa.

So we formed a club of speakers. Who with due deliberation Took ATHENIAN as our watchword. After much impromptu sneaking, And some excellent debating, This club thought that it had gathered All the knowledge that would serve it In its future dissertations, So it mutually disbanded, Leaving but a path of glory. If you’re seeking more material Horace Mann can well supply you. If you wish to learn of horses And especially of fine trotters, Do not fail to see Fred Weiler ; He prefers the ones well-broken, And not difficult to handle. Anyone who needs a pony Might also see Floyd Weaver. Hallowe’en is quite important, In the annals of our college, And as Freshmen we took part in A parade, dressed in pajamas. From the college we went marching To the center of the city, There to join in celebrating, Flirting with the girls who watched us. Hut when the parade was over, We mixed with the masqueraders. All too soon the evening ended, And we journeyed to the college, There to dream about the customs Of our dear old Alma Mater. If you don’t believe my story, J. G. Miller with vouch for it. Now you must not get the notion, That as students of the college, We do not get recreation. For we had a yearly custom, “Orpheum Night” is what we call it, When we students in a body Go to Wilmer-Vincent’s playhouse, There to hear the jokes and banter Of some great and clever actors. Corner Rees, who is a critic, Can describe all such occasions. But thus far I have not told you Anything about the commons, Where we did most of our eating, When we had a hungry feeling. Whore we got baked beans and goulash, Lots of wheat, both puffed and shredded, Where we got cold beans and hot dogs. Fried potatoes and spaghetti, Various meats and stranger dressings, Soups too numerous to mention. In the morning we got coffee, If we had a mind to drink it. Tea was on our dinner menu. While for supper we drank cocoa. Now this was the usual order In which these drinks were served us. But there was no rule preventing, If the cooks should take a notion, To serve them in different order. Cooks we had both men and women, Two of whom were Orientals. Austin Taggart, strong on eating. Can tell all about the Commons. In the fall of Nineteen-Twenty, We came back again as Sophomores. But the class was much diminished By the loss of many members, Caused by many different reasons : Some could not attain the average. Which the faculty demanded ; Others started in their life-work ; Some were financially embarrassed, Why some others stopped, I know not. With the number that was left us, And a few new-added members. We went on our way rejoicing, Kept the Freshmen in subjection. And maintained the college honor. For still further Sophomore details You should ask little “Kinky” Balmer. Thus we reached our Junior standing, Gaining quite a few new members, Who made up for former losses. Then we started on the year-book, And we hope to make it better, Than all former compositions. What will happen in the future, I will not attempt to tell you ; Only that when we leave college, You will find among the first rank Of the men esteemed and famous Names that will be quite familiar, From the class of three and twenty. Now at last my story’s ended, And I hope that you have liked it. For I write for your amusement Not for any hope of glory. — C. E. B. Oh Spring has come at last and all around On campus, or on vale or hill, The not-to-be-mistaken signs are found, The verdant grass and songbirds singing shrill, All these betoken Winter’s hasty flight. The swift approach of that loved season mild, Which fills the breast of each one with delight And opens up new pleasures for the child. Now comes the seeming dullness to the mind Which proves to be Spring-fever’s reign. Baseball, tennis, and sports of every kind ’ Now hold attention of all men again. Gladness and beauty reign once more supreme Things seem more cheerful in the sun’s bright gleam. —CHARLES E. BRODELL, ’23. Page Two Hundred Fifty-one Old Muhlenberg It’s the magic of the campus, lyin’ sleepy in the sun, An’ the magic of the campus when the sleepy day is done; It’s the magic of the moonlight that, slippin’ through the trees, When they nod their heads and whisper in the idlin’ evening breeze — Ain’t I right? When you smell the spring a-coming — tho’ you’ve planned to go away. For a real vacation summer — still you kind o’ think you’ll stay Just a day or two — no longer — just to see that summer school Get’s its send-off — an’ the magic that for once you thot you’d fool — Has you right? For you meet old friends you haven’t seen since Hector was a pup, An’ before you know what’s happened, you find you’re dated up A week or two — -or more — ahead, an’ then you settle down An’ sign up for a Hist’ry course — an’ summer in the town — Ain’t I right? Then it’s evenin’ on the campus and the co-eds all parade An’ underneath the cherry-tree — or anywhere there s shade — Affords a place to congregate an’ sit an’ smoke an’ talk, An’ look the prospects over while they take their evenin’ walk — Ain’t I right? An’ by an’ by it’s getting dark, an’ the birds are flyin’ low. An’ then the moon comes floatin’ up all lazy like and slow. Then the campus starts a-pullin’ an’ a-tuggin’ — an’ you know That you’ve business in the room, an’ you guess you’d better go — Ain’t you right? O’ the summer in old Muhlenberg with the campus lyin’ still In the sunlight or the moonlight — only wish I had the skill Just to paint it like I love it with the shadows on the grass An’ the shrubbery that won’t let you, when you think you’re goin’ to pass. When you know you got to leave it all it kin’ o’ chokes you dry, An’ you have a lot of trouble with a cinder in your eye; An’ you swear that tho’ you’re goin’, you’re not leaving it for long, Ain’t I right? “POPE” HILDEBRAND, ’24. (With apologies to Gordon Creecraft) Muhlenberg College History The forerunner of Muhlenberg College was the Allentown Seminary, which was founded in 1848 by Rev. Christian R. Kessler, of the Reformed Church, and which, in 1864, by an act of the Legislature of Pennsylvania, was incorporated with full collegiate powers under the title of the “Allentown Collegiate Institute and Military Academy.” The Allentown Seminary was opened on May 1, 1848, in the Livingston Mansion with eleven in attendance. The Seminary, changing somewhat its original view, be- came a classical school, and in this capacity soon began to be recognized and patronized by the people. Rev. Kessler died, March 4, 1885, and was succeeded by the Rev. William M. Reynolds, D.D., of the Lutheran Church, and by the Rev. William Phillips, of the Reformed church, both serving two years. Rev. William R. Hofford, of the Reformed Church, was the next head, from 1859 to 1864. In that year the course of studies was enlarged and the institution assumed a military air, but it was still in reality a private classical school, with the Rev. M. L. Hofford, of the Presbyterian Church, as president for three years until 1867, when the academy ceased to exist.

P P E L 625 HAMILTON STREET Page Two Hundred Fifty-four The relations of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, through its clergy and layity, with the Allentown Seminary were most cordial and beneficial, but the Ministerium had in view the establishment of its own college in Eastern Pennsylvania, and its energies in this direction were redoubled when m 1864 the Theological Seminary in Philadelphia was established. A committee, with this end in view, appointed by the Ministerium after seven years labor in 1867 reported: “Muhlenberg College can and will soon be formally opened, with fair prospects of success.” This was accomplished by the formation of a joint stock company with an initial capital of 300, 0U0 dollars. On September 3, 1867, over a century after the great patriarch of the Lutheran Church, Rev. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, had made a determined tho unsuccessful attempt to establish an institution for higher education (1733) an institution named in his honor opened its doors with impressive ceremonies under the presidency of Rev. Frederick A. Muhlenberg, D.D., a descendant of the illustrious family of Muhlen- berg. The property of the new college consisted of about five acres of land in the south- eastern part of the city of Allentown, on the west side of Fourth Street between Walnut and Union. The buildings were the original mansion or east wing, the west wing and the center, to which there was a considerable addition made in 1867. It was President Muhlenberg’s desire that the students under him be instructed both by precept and example and that they become “as eminent for Christian attain- ments as for sound scholarship.” The total enrollment was twenty-five and that of the academic department a hundred-thirty six. On June 23-24, 1874 the Ministerium assumed the entire management of Muhlen- berg College. It is interesting to note that during President Muhlenberg’s admin- istration Rev. William R. Hofford, Professor of Latin, resigned in order to accept the presidency of the Allentown Female College, which had succeeded the female depart- ment of the Allentown Collegiate Institute. It was with regret that the Board of Trustees accepted President Muhlenberg’s resignation in 1876, to take up a professor- ship of Greek at the University of Pennsylvania, a position to which he was called on account of his national reputation as a Greek scholar, and for which he was eminently qualified. Muhlenberg was succeeded as president by Rev. Benjamin Sadtler, D.D. The college continued to grow in size and influence, and several important gifts were received, notably the endowment of the “Asa Packer Professorship of the Natural and Applied Sciences,” and the “Mosser-Keek Professorship of the Greek Language and Literature.” Professor Edgar Fahs Smith, Ph.D., of the University of Penn- sylvania held the Asa Packer Professorship for two years 1881-83. In 1883 a college Missionary Society was established and the graduating class of that year left a permanent memorial in the “Muhlenberg Monthly,” which later became “The Muhlen- berg” and in 1914 became “The Muhlenberg Weekly.” President Sadtler concluded his nine years of labor in 1885. The third president was the Rev. Theodore L. Seip, D.D. Under his able admin- istration, the College began to show new life. The preliminary work which had been done by his eminent predecessors and by himself in the various positions which he formerly occupied, began to show results for good in every direction. It was under his guidance that plans were made for the new college. But unfortunately he did not live to see the fruits of his labors. The first B.S. degrees in course were con- ferred in 1899. In 1904 came a new president, Rev. J. A. W. Haas, D.D., whose energy, aggressive- ness, activity, breath of scholarship, and high ideals have brought the institution to prominence in the scholastic world. In January 1905 the college was moved to the new location. The administration building, Berks and Rhoads Halls, the power house and the President’s residence were the first buildings to be completed. The degree of Ph.B., was first conferred in 1911. The first summer school was held in 1915. Within late years the most remarkable growth has been shown in the extension work of the college under the direction of Dr. I. M. Wright. The first emeritus professorship was given to Dr. Wm. Wackernagel in 1921. Page Two Hundred Fifty-five EDDY DE WEE EDE FLOWERBULB SPECIALISTS PARADISE, PA. American Headquarters Holland Headquarters Paradise, Lancaster Co., Pa. Sassenheim, Holland J. R.

Page Two Hundred Sixty-five Where Can You Get Such Value? Did you ever stop to consider that in point of convenience your gas service is one of the greatest money values you can buy to-day? Take a family of five persons living in an eight-room house and using gas service exclusively for a typical winter’s month. What is the probable record of service performed? 90 meals cooked in about 75 hours, a saving in time of at least two full days over the old coal stove. 4,000 gallons of water heated automatically. 250 hours of eye comfort- ing illumination. Heat for the entire house, either room heaters or central automatic heat- ing boiler. No coal, no smoke, no ashes, no soot, no fumes, no stove or fur- nace feeding. Saving effected in linens, draperies, rugs uphol- stery, wall paper, fur- niture and clothes. Strength and health con- served, the atmosphere made wholesome, drudgery eliminated, leisure assured. Yet for all these manifold benefits, the average bill for gas service is one of the least expensive items, one of the smallest necessary outlays, in the household budget. Think it over: Is there any other service at your disposal that gives so much for so little money as this one? ALLENTOWN--BETHLEHEM GAS CO. Page Two Hundred Sixty-six 11.
