CIAPLA 1924 Qocto-r jfiaac Isaac Miles Wright 0 be a firm believer in the science of modern education, and at the same time ‘ I to have the administrative ability to put those co nvictions to practical use 1 in one of the most fertile fields, are partly the accomplishments of Dr. Miles Wright, the Director of Muhlenberg’s successful Extension Department, and professor of Philosophy and Pedagogy. His father, who had married Belle Saunders, was engaged in farming at Scio, New York, and there on March 7, 1879, Isaac Miles Wright was born. He received his early training at Belmont High School, from where he graduated in 1899, having been very active on the High School Debating Team. He entered Alfred University in the fall of 1899, where he took active part in the scholastic, as well as social and athletic phases of college life. He won Sophomore honors, and was a member of the Inter-Collegiate Debating Teams for three years, as well as a member of the Dramatic Club, where he played the part of Petruchio in, “The Taming of the Shrew.” He was newspaper correspondent for the college during his entire course. He was manager of the football team, as well as captain in 1903; a member of both the basketball and baseball teams, and a member of the Tennis Club. In his Junior year he was Lyceum Orator at the commencement session. He graduated in 1904, winning department honors, with the degree of B. S. Although Dr. Wright had inclinations for machine designing, his early experience, 1898-99 as teacher in a district school, and 1900-01 as principal of the Scio Graded School, doubtless determined him upon his active educational career. In 1904 he served as instructor at Cook Academy; 1904-05 he was a High School instructor in Science and athletics at Westfield, New York; 1905-6 he served in the same capacity at Springville, New York; and 1906-7 at LeRoy, New York. There, kind Fate met him in the person of his future wife, Miss Maude Goff Paul. In 1907 he was appointed principal of the Ellicottville, New York, High School, where he continued for three years, this being followed by a three year period in the same position at Lawrence, New York. Due to his aggressive spirit, the year 1913-14 found him located as an assistant in the Biology Department at New York University, where he also received his Pd.M. in the Spring of 1914. From 1914-17 Dr. Wright was head of the Science Department at the Dwight School, and New York Preparatory School, New York City. He had received his Pd. D. from New York University in 1916, having made an exhaustive study of the United States Bureau of Education for his doctor’s thesis. In 1917 Dr. Wright came to Muhlenberg through direct recommendation of New York University, and took charge of our Extension Department. At that time there were thirty-seven enrolled. At the present time, in less than six years, that enrollment has increased to eight hundred and thirty, consisting most of teachers of the Lehigh Valley. Now there are branches of this department in Hellertown, Hazleton, Coaldale, Lansford, and Pottsville. This achievement is invincible proof of Dr. Wright’s keen interest in the development of modern education, and the growth of Muhlenberg influence. His educational activities have been many and varied, and are in keeping with his untiring interest in that field. His educational affiliations are; Pennsylvania State Educational Association, College Teachers of Pennsylvania, National Society for the study of Education, National Geographic Society, and Association of Doctors of Pedagogy. Fraternally, he is affiliated with; Phi Delta Kappa, Phi Kappa Tau, Edwin G. Martin Lodge F. A. M., Allen Commandery, and Rajah Temple. Dr. Wright’s sixth year of service is almost ended. Students have found him to be an inspiring and enthusiastic teacher; an ardent supporter of the social life, and the athletic activities of the college; a willing servant in inter-class football events. They know he has made sacrifices for the welfare of the institution; they are confident that he is an ardent and loyal Muhlenberg supporter. For these reasons, we sincerely dedicate to him, this volume of the CIARLA. R. L. W.

V ■;: - A CIAPLA 1924 THE CRADLE OF MUHLENBERG COLLEGE History of tlie M ulilenbergs and How tlie College Came to be Named Muhlenberg afTl UHLENBERG COLLEGE was founded in 1867 to meet the needs of the Lutherans of Eastern Pennsylvania, by the Evangelical Lutheran Ministerium of Pennsylvania and Adjacent States, the oldest Lutheran synod in America. There was already in exist- ence at Allentown an institution of high grade and efficient work, in which Lutherans were interested. The Allentown Seminary had been founded in 1848 and was succeeded in 1864 by the Allentown Collegiate Institute and Military Academy, when the first advance was made toward the grade of a college by the enlargement and improvement of the course of studies. A plan was under way to transfer Pennsylvania College from Gettysburg to Allentown ; but this was not considered advisable by the Board of Trustees of that institution. After efforts of several years a new college was therefore started at Allentown to meet the needs of the Lutherans in Eastern Pennsylvania. The buildings, property, establishment, and goodwill of the Allentown Seminary and Academy were obtained; and the older institution was brought under the control and supervision of our church and raised to the grade of a full college. Rev. Professor Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, of Gettysburg, became the first president of the new institution. Seventeen At a meeting of the Board of Trustees held May 21, 1867, the new institution was given the name of Muhlenberg, in honor of the great- grandfather of the first president, Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, the Patriarch of the Lutheran Church in America. Although the president, in his modesty, regretted that the college had received the name of his family, there never has been any reason to make a change. In the fifty years of her history, Muhlenberg College has been true to the traditions of this name and has borne it worthily, as she hopes to do for many years to come. Indeed it would have been difficult to find a more suitable name for this institution than that of the first great Lutheran of Pennsylvania, the Patriarch of the Lutheran Church in America, and the father of the family that has deserved so well of church and state in the annals of Pennsylvania and the nation. He organized the first Lutheran synod in America, and his work in organizing and establishing the Lutheran Church in this country cannot be exaggerated. During the Revolution he and his sons were prominent patriots. One son, known as General Peter Muhlenberg, whose full name was John Peter Gabriel, was educated in Germany; and, tho maintaining his Lutheran connections and beliefs, submitted to ordination by the Church of England that he might serve the religious needs of people in Virginia, where the only recognized church was the Episcopal. It was at Woodstock, Virginia, that he made his dramatic appeal in the pulpit, when he threw back his gown and showed underneath it the uniform of a colonel in the Continental Army. He became brigadier general and later major general; he served with distinction in many battles, and enjoyed the confidence of Washington. He was a friend of Jefferson and Monroe. He was a member of the Virginia convention of 1776, was representative in Congress for several terms, and was elected to the Senate. His brother, Frederick Augustus Conrad Muhlenberg, a distinguished minister, was also a member of Continental Congress, 1779-80; of the Pennsylvania General Assembly; and in 1789-90 of the state constitutional convention. He was president of the Pennsylvania convention that ratified the federal constitution, and was speaker of the national House of Representatives, 1789-91 and 1793-95. Another brother, Gotthilf Henry Ernest Muhlenberg, was a pastor at Lancaster and a distinguished botanist. His son, Henry Augustus Muh- lenberg, was a pastor at Reading, representative in Congress, and minister to Austria. William Augustus Muhlenberg, great grandson of Henry Melchior, was a distinguished philanthropist and Episcopal clergyman. Another great-grandson was the first president of Muhlenberg College, a distinguished scholar and able administrator, who in the first trying years of the new institution placed it upon the firm foundation which has been the basis of its later success. Eighteen The Lutheran Church has always laid great stress upon education. We must not forget that Martin Luther and his co-worker Melanchthon were university trained men and university professors. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg was a graduate of the University of Halle. This famous university was at that time a young institution, for it was founded only in 1694, as a refuge for professors and students from the University of Leipzig. It was a protest against a narrower type of education ; its founding was a turning-point in the history of educational progress in Germany; and from the first the new institution was to be representative of modern tendencies. It soon became one of the principal seats of Protestant theology. Muhlenberg, who came to this country in 1742, made great efforts to establish an institution of high grade ; but the plans were spoiled by the troublous times before and during the Revolu- tion, and the condition of the country and the church was such after the war that it was not possible. The Lutherans of the Eastern part of the state co-operated in the establishment of Pennsylvania College at Gettysburg in 1832. But in time this proved to be too far away from the center of the territory of the Ministerium. It was then a happy day and a fortunate move when an institution was established in the heart of this Lutheran community, here at Allentown. This is the educational tradition of our institution. Muhlenberg College must keep abreast of the times, must search for the truth which gives freedom, must give the best education possible to its students, and must diffuse culture. The Lutheran Church believes in educated laymen as well as an educated ministry. ROBERT C. HORN. Nineteen Twenty HENRY MELCHIOR MUHLENBERG ’ PATRIARCH OF THE . LUTHERAN CHURCH IN AMERICA PASTOR IN PHILADELPHIA 1742-1787 THE BATTLEGROUND THE DRIVEWAY SNOWBOUND Rev. John A. W. Haas, D.D., LL.D. President; Professor of Religion and Philosophy Born at Philadelphia, Pa., August 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. Phi Beta Kappa. University of Leipsic 1887-88. D.D., Thiel College 1902. Fourth President of Muhlenberg, 1904. LL.D. University of Pennsylvania, 1914. “A great Muhlenberg” has been Doctor Haas’ watch word ever since he came to Muhlenberg and every succeeding year his efforts have brought him closer to the goal, until now his efforts are just about to be realized. His work in this direction is too great to be fully appreciated but its accomplishment will be its own reward to Doctor Haas. “A greater Muhlenberg” is closer to his heart than many of us realize. But there is another side to Doctor Haas as he reveals it to us. Who does not remember long hours in the office with Doctor Haas taking the lead in all the fun that is going on? Or perhaps you have heard “Bernie” and the Doctor arguing about politics, which is quite a treat in itself? Doctor Haas is also a lecturer of note and when a notice on the bulletin board says “Doctor Haas will speak in chapel,” the attendance always shows marked im- provement. He always has something worthwhile to say and sometimes even lets loose some fireworks. All of which we have learned to appreciate. His abilities as an author have been very favorably heralded by the press; on this score alone we can be proud of Dr. Haas. Although we see the Doctor from all angles, we know him best as he reveals himself in the little personal discussions we have with him from time to time. Thirty-one George T. Ettinger, Ph.D., LL.D. Dean; Professor of the Latin Language and Literature Born at Allentown, Pa., November 8, 1860. Prepared at Private School and the Academic Department of Muhlenberg College. A.B. (Valedictorian) Muhlenberg College 1883. Principal of the Academic Department 1884-92. Ph.D., New York University 1891. President of the Muhlenberg Alumni Association, Professor of Latin and Pedagogv 1898-1917. Professor of Latin since 1917. LL.D., Muhlenberg College 1920. A little man, shaking his finger at you and saying in a slow, dry tone “Now, boys.” That’s a characteristic picture of Dean Ettinger as we know him best, the little man who is always so ready to join in with all our doings. Can you imagine a football smoker without Dr. Ettinger? But the Dean also has charge of the de- partment of Latin and takes great delight in the diversified feats of horsemanship which he is permitted to see daily. He boasts that Muhlenberg produces splendid jockeys if it does nothing else. Doctor Ettinger never loses an opportunity to tell us of his long years of services at Muhlenberg and many are the alumni whom he calls his boys. He is a living emblem for everything that Muhlenberg stands for. Rev. John A. Bauman, Ph.D., D.D. Professor of Mathematics Born at Easton, Pa., September 21, 1847. A.B., (Val- edictorian) Muhlenberg College 1873. A.M., Muhlenberg 1876. Ordained a minister of the Lutheran Church in 1876. Professor of Lat : n, 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., Muhlenberg 1920. Dr. Bauman has done a great deal for Muh- lenberg since he came here as a professor. He has taught a wide range of subjects but now centers his interest on mathematics. Dr. Bauman is inimitable in this line of work and whether it be in Geometry or Calculus always has a new wrinkle to show us. Despite his age. Dr. Bauman still knows how to keep us hustling, as anyone who has had the opportunity of studying surveying under him will testify. Altho Dr. Bauman is no longer connected with the Physics depart- ment, he is a frequent visitor and is always up to date with the latest discoveries. Muhlenberg owes much to Dr. Bauman and is proud to acknowledge her debt to him. L. J Thirty-two CIAPLA 1924 Robert C. Horn, A.M., LL.D. Professor of the Greek Language and Literature Born at Charleston, S. C., September 12, 18 81. Pre- pared at Charleston High School. A.B. Muhlenberg College 1900. Graduate Work at Johns Hopkins Uni- versity 1900-01. A.M., Muhlenberg College 1903. Pro- fessor of the Greek Language and Literature 1905. LL.D., Muhlenberg 1922. Doctor Horn makes our acquaintance as soon as we enter college and afterwards has plenty of opportunity to continue it. He is the man who hands out excuse cards and also, as Assistant to the President is the man whom we visit after the casualty list has been posted. Doctor Horn is in charge of the department of Greek. Greek, what? Professor Horn can tell you more about the Greeks, ancient and modern, than you ever thought was possible. In his courses, life is always infused into a language which is considered dead by many students. However, outside of his official duties, “Bob- by” is easy to get along with and is always ready to give his help and advise whenever it is needed. Rev. Robert R. Fritsch, A.M. Chaplain; Professor of Religion Born in Allentown, Pa., September 10, 1879. Pre- pared at Allentown High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College 1900. A.M., Muhlenberg College 1903. A.M.. Illinois Wesleyan University 1907. Instuctor in Greek at Muhlenberg College 1907-8. Instructor in Modern Languages 1908-15. Elected Assistant Professor in 1915. Elected Professor of Religion 1921. We all know Professor Fritsch as the man who conducts our daily chapel services, and under his direction, such diversified programs are prepared that going to chapel has become a real pleasure. Professor Fritsch also has charge of the course in religion and he takes great pleasure in solving our personal problems in the course of his lectures. Every year he conducts Teacher Training Classes as a part of his course. Beside his work at college, Professor Fritsch is kept busy lecturing on religion thruout all the surrounding cities and towns. He is also a pastor of a large church in the eastern portion of the city. He seems to thrive on work, however, and always finds time to ex- tend a helping hand. Thirty-three Harry D. Bailey, A.M. Professor of Biology Born at Easton, Pa., January 14, 1881. Prepared at South Easton High School. A.B., Lafayette College 1904. A.M., Lafayette College 1909. Phi Beta Kappa. Attended Biological Laboratory at Cold Springs Harbor, Long Island, in the spring of 1903. Appointed In- structor in Biology, Muhlenberg College 1909. Elected Professor of Biology in 1910. If you were to ask which group of courses was most generally liked by all the students at Muhlenberg, the answer would undoubtedly be Biology and its related sciences. There are a number of reasons for this but the best one is Professor Bailey himself. No one can come into contact with him without wanting to take one of his courses. Professor Bailey’s interest in Biology is always at the highest pitch and his enthusiasm seems to be very contagious. Whenever you are in trouble go to see Professor Bailey and you will always be able to get help. Professor Bailey somehow always manages to get your point of view and in a very short time he’ll chase the blues away. You can always find a real friend in Professor Bailey. 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 1898. Phi Beta Kappa. Summer Courses at Columbia University 1903-04. Instructor in English, Muhlenberg College, 1911-14. Elected Assistant Professor 1914. Elected Professor 1921. When you see Professor Simpson for the first time, you think he is one of the most sedate individuals you have ever seen, but as soon as you have seen some of his inimitable facial contortions and heard some of his jokes, you must change your mind very quickly. “Teedy” is a friend of all Muhlenberg students and we’re all friends of his and proud of it too. He is always ready with counsel and is always ready to help out. He is also Librarian of the college and can tell where to find out about everything from shoe laces to steam engines. He is cramped for room but is cheering up now that plans are well under way for the new library. Professor Simpson makes college life worth while and we hope he stays with us for a long time. Thirty-four Rev. John D. M. Brown, A.M. Professor of English Born at Lebanon, Pa., December 2, 1883. Prepared at Lebanon High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College 1906. A.M., Columbia University 1907. Ordained a minister in the Lutheran Church 1910. Elected Professor at Muhlenberg College 1912. Assistant Professor in 1915 ; Professor in 1920. Professor Brown is an authority on the drama of different countries and his course on the drama is most comprehensive. He specializes on the correct rendition of the various character portrayals and under his guidance, the drama has assumed a new inter- est for us. Professor Brown also has charge of the courses in Oratory and he has placed Muhlen- berg in the first rank of colleges in that de- partment. Under his direction Muhlenberg has won a place in the I. 0. U. which cannot be equalled by any of the colleges taking part. As a dramatic director, Professor Brown has no peer. His work in producing the Glee Club skits has won continuous rounds of applause. Albert C. H. Fasig, M.S. Professor of Natural and Applied Sciences Born at Reading, Pa., September 18, 1888. Prepared at Reading High School. B.S., Muhlenberg, 1909. Alpha Tau Omega. M.S., Muhlenberg College 1910. Chemist in the Department of Meat and Milk Inspection, Read- ing. Elected Instructor in the Department of Natural and Applied Sciences 1913 ; Assistant Professor 1917 ; Professor in 1920. No one can know anything about Muhlen- berg and not know Professor Fasig. Besides being- head of the Department of Chemistry, Professor Fasig is the greatest living author- ity on Muhlenberg athletics. Professor Fasig is a member of the Athletic Association and has made it his mission to inform all of the incoming freshmen of the splendid traditions of Muhlenberg’s football team s and unfortunate indeed is the man who does not have the Muhlenberg spirit after his first class under Professor Fasig. Professor Fasig is interested in every line of chemistry and can tell you interesting facts about each one of them. He never tires of telling of his experience as city chemist in Reading and protection of our chemical indus- tries by law is also one of his topics. We wish Muhlenberg had more of the men of Tut’s character. Thirty-five 1924 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 at Muhlenberg 1917. Phi Kappa Tau. Phi Delta Kappa. Director of Extension Courses. Doctor Wright is an authority on anything, so if you want to know anything go to him. But always be prepared to tell him what use you want to make of the information. Our first contact with him is in Logic and Psychol- ogy and from that time on we begin to realize our insignificance. Doctor Wright maintains that everyone should be a specialist in something and so he specializes in education and he is always on the lookout for something new. His students are always able to command very good posi- tions. Under Doctor Wright’s supervision, the Extension Department has shown remarkable improvement, every year breaking the record of the year before, until this year there will be about eight hundred in attendance. Doctor Wright has made Muhlenberg’s extension de- partment known all over the state. Henry R. Mueller, A.M., Ph.D. Professor of History Born July 21, 1887. A.B., Muhlenberg College 1909. A.M., Columbia University 1915. Post-Graduate Work at Columbia 1914-17. University Scholar, Columbia 1915-16. University Fellow, Columbia 1916-17. A. E. F. University of Paris 1919. Elected Professor of History and Political Science, Muhlenberg College 1920. Ph.D., Columbia University 1922. Doctor Mueller came to Muhlenberg College with the Class of 1924, and has always main- tained a close relationship with us. Since he has taken hold, the History Department has offered many new courses and is one of Muhlenberg’s proudest boas.ts. History is Dr. Mueller’s specialty and we receive the full benefit of all his research work in his classes. If you desire to know anything about History in its relation to Political Science, go to Professor Mueller. That’s his hobby and you’ll be sure to get what you want. Doctor Mueller is a friend of everybody at Muhlenberg and we are proud of his friend- ship.. Our only hope is that Dr. Mueller has continued success during his stay at Muhlen- berg. Thirty-six CIARLA 1924 Anthony S. Corbiere, Ph.B. Professor of Romance Languages Born at Nice, France, March 8, 1893. Prepared at Tacoma High School. Department of Journalism, Uni- versity of Washington 3 years. Phi Kappa Sigma. Sigma Delta Chi. Associate University Players. Ser- geant Major Ambulance Service U. S. A., A. E. F., Ph.B., Muhlenberg College 1920. Graduate Work Colu- umbia University 1920-21. University of Pennsylvania 1921-22. Muhlenberg is proud of its department of Romance languages and one of the most im- portant reasons is Mr. Corbiere himself. Muh- lenberg men have an opportunity of having a Frenchman as their teacher and one who is thoroughly acquainted with the literature of his country. Mr. Corbiere first made Muhlenberg’s acquaintance during the war while at the Usaac training camp, and returned here to finish his work. We wish him all the luck in the world and hope that he may continue in his work as he has begun. Rev. Charles B. Bowman, A.M., B.D. Professor of Sociology, Economics, and Business Administration Born at Parryville, 1873. Prepared at Lehighton High School. A.B., North Western College, 1896. B.D., Drew Theological Seminary, 1900. A.M., North Western College, 1903. Graduate Work University of Chicago, 1912-14. University of Wisconsin, 1916. Elected Professor of Sociology and Economics at Muh- lenberg, 1922. Although this is Professor Bowman’s first year at Muhlenberg, he has already won his place in the hearts of everyone who has come in contact with him. Professor Bowman, as Professor of Sociol- ogy and Economics, has as his job to make successful business men out of the Muhlenberg men who are taking their places in the busi- ness world. He seems to be making quite a success of it at that. But teaching Business Administration is not Professor Bowman’s only accomplishment. He is also quite a successful minister. Anyone who has seen Professor in charge of Chapel knows that he will make a success in this chosen vocation, both as a pastor and as a teacher. We wish Professor continued success during his stay at Muhlenberg. Thirty-seven John V. Shankweiler, B.S. Born at Huff’s Church, Berks County, Pa., July 22, 1894. Keystone State Normal School. Taught at Mohn- ton High School. A. E. F. 79th Division. Phi Kappa Tau. B.S., Muhlenberg College, 1921. Elected In- structor in Biology 1921. John is Professor Bailey’s assistant in the department of biology, having specialized in that line of work while a student here. He believes in hard work while in the class-room, but outside one could not ask for a better friend. If you can’t find Mr. Shankweiler in his room or in Professor Bailey’s office, doing some research work, look out the driveway to see if his Buick roadster is there. If it is not, John has probably gone for a spin. So call again later, please. John is greatly interested in basketball and is very much in demand as a referee in the inter-class games. Probably because it serves as a little reminder of his undergraduate days on the team. Luther J. Deck, A.B. Instructor in Mathematics and Physics Born at Hamburg, Pa., February 7, 1899. Prepared at Hamburg High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College 1920. Graduate Work, University of Pennsylvan ; a 1921. Delta Theta. Elected Instructor in Mathematics a nd Physics at Muhlenberg College 1921. Mr. Deck teaches two subjects which are heartily disliked by most of his students. In spite of this handicap, however, he has a firm foot-hold in the esteem of his students. We doubt whether there is a better liked teacher at Muhlenberg than Mr. Deck. Luther has two hobbies, math and music, — “the two M’s as he fondly calls them.” If you doubt this, ask any of his students. The juniors will tell you the horrors of a mathe- matical physics course and can, in the same breath tell you of Luther’s stories of the in- numerable musical celebrities he has heard. Not content with the math, he already tor- tures us with, Mr. Deck plans to spend next year in graduate work at Penn and has al- ready received leave of absence for this pur- pose. Thirty-eight I CIARLA 1924 Howard B. Kistler, B.S. Born at Wetherhold, Pa., 1892. Prepared at Allen- town High School. B.S., Muhlenberg College 1915. Chemist J. T. Baker Chemical Company. Member of American Chemical Society. Elected Instructor at Muh- lenberg 1921. Graduate work Syracuse University 1922. Mr. Kistler is our instructor in Chemistry and is in charge of the laboratory work. Since he has taken hold, the department has made rapid strides forward. If you doubt it, ask any freshman how many points he has. Mr. Kistler was engaged in the practical side of chemistry for a number of years before he returned to Muhlenberg and as Chemist for the J. T. Baker Chemical Company had great success. Since his return he has formed a class in Industrial Chemistry and Muhlenberg can point with pride to its museum of chem- icals, prepared by its own students, which is unrivaled by a great many chemical plants. Kis’s hobby is chemistry and a little more chemistry. Whether you talk about the Ger- man monopoly of dyes or of the manufacture of Sulphuric Acid, you will always be able to interest Kis in your discussion. Preston A. Barba, A.M., Ph.D. Professor of German Born at Bethlehem, Pa., April 7, 1883. Prepared at Allentown High School and Bethlehem Prep. A.B. Muhlenberg College, 1906. A.M. Yale University, 1907. University of Pennsylvania, 1911. Fellow at Gottingen Heidelberg, University of Berlin. Professor of German at Muhlenberg 1922. Professor Barba, although a new man on the faculty, is really one of the old-timers at Muhlenberg and in his first year here as a teacher has shown us that he will undoubtedly have the same success as a professor that he had as a student. Professor Barba has made a number of changes in the German department and is putting Muhlenberg on a plane with any college in the East as far as German is con- cerned. In the short time that we have known him, Professor Barba has impressed us as a scholar and as a man. Muhlenberg men are proud to have him both as their teacher and as their friend. Thirty-nine 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 1919. Have you ever come into the “ad” building and heard a mighty voice steadily repeating 1-2-3-4-, 1-2-3-4-? That was Bill Ritter put- ting on the finishing touches to an hour of physical culture and in several minutes you’ll see the results — a bunch of huskies who seem to be rather dejected and worn out. But we’ve got to admit that physical culture isn’t so bad, and, indeed, we rather enjoy it once the six cuts are out of our systems. Its surely a wonderful sensation rolling around on the grass and Bill gives us plenty of opportunity to enjoy it. Bill, besides being physical director, is coach of basketball and track and we always count on him to put out a mighty fine team. We’re all with you, Bill. Harold K. Marks, A.B. Instructor in Music Born at Emails, Pa., May 12, 1886. Prepared at Allentown High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College 1907. Alpha Tau Omega. Studied Piano Theory, and Compo- sition under the direction of various musicians. Elected Instructor in Music at Muhlenberg 1913. Professor Marks is the man to whom much of the credit f or Muhlenberg’s position in the musical world is due. He has a number of classes in music and is the director of the Glee Club. Under Professor Marks’ guidance, Muhlen- berg’s Glee Club has risen to a prominent position in Eastern Pennsylvania and New York and is received everywhere with the greatest delight. Professor Marks takes great delight in everything musical and is back of every worth while musical project in Allentown. To him is due credit for the organization of our Chapel Choir and Community Singing. Under his leadership Muhlenberg may look for a re- newed interest in music. Fori)) Oscar F " . Bernheim, A.B. Treasurer, Secretary, and Registrar Born at Mt. Pleasant, N. C., November 16, 1868. Prepared at Academic Department of Muhlenberg Col- lege. A.B., Muhlenberg College 1892. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Treasurer and Registrar of Muhlenberg College 1907. Elected Secretary 1919. Mr. Bernheim has as a job, the running of Muhlenberg College, and as a recreation, he is a Democrat. Bernie is the first man we meet when we come to Muhlenberg and after we’ve met him once there’s no getting rid of him. As Treas- urer, Secretary, and Registrar of the College and as a member of the Athletic Association, he stays with us at every stage of the game. Even graduates aren’t safe from his watchful eye and whenever he sees an alumnus, the unfortunate person is usually minus some coin. Bernie and Guerney make a splendid team. According to Bernheim, he has no higher aim in life than to be a good Democrat. A person can’t be any better than that says Bernie and then the argument starts anew. Bernie would rather talk about the merits of the Democratic party and the evils of the Re- publicans than do anything else. He holds up his end pretty well at that. Guerney F. Afflerbach, 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 College 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 one of Muhlenberg’s most loyal boosters as Field Secretary and shows it in a tangible way. He is organizing the alumni into a compact unit to work for a greater Muhlenberg. “How about a subscription to the campaign?” is Guerney’s pet expression and lucky indeed is the man who gets away with his pocket-book intact. Guerney, as Graduate Manager of Athletics, has charge of our athletic schedules and he always gives rs one that is unexcelled by any college in our class. Athletics as they used to be, as they are now and as they are going to be at Muhlenberg are Guerney’s hobby, and he never gets tired of telling about the merits of our Team. Forty-one Wilfred A. S. Fritchman Born Trenton, N. J., May 8, 1897. Graduated from Bethlehem High School 1916. Pre-Medical Course at Muhlenberg 1917-18. Pierce Business College, Phila- delphia 1919. Following his father’s footsteps in life work was the case of Mr. Fritchman. While attend- ing High School and college he spent his spare moments Saturdays and during vacations working in restaurants where he started as a bus boy, carrying dishes and gradually stepping to higher positions until after he served an apprenticeship as chef. In the fall of 1921 he was employed as assistant manag er of a large cafeteria in Trenton, New Jersey; here he spent one year after which time he was appointed by the board of directors of Muhlenberg to fill the long needed position as a full-time Steward.

Haas T HE advance of any college must be conditioned by what has been attained. The mere desire to become greater is no reason for more buildings or larger equipment. The actual situation of a college and its prospects clearly indicated alone justify advance. With this principal in mind Muhlenberg is moving ahead in no spirit of boastfulness but impelled by the necessity to advance or retrograde. Since the location at the present situation in 1904 when the Administration Building was erected together with the Power House, some of the dormi- tories and the President’s home, there have been added the Preparatory School, the Treasurer’s house, the temporary commons, and additional wings of the Dormitories. The main effort has been directed to adding professors, increasing their salaries, and making the College more effective in educational service in every direction. It is the increasing fame of Muhlenberg and the excellence of her work and standing that brings about the need for further progress. The first necessity is the erection of three buildings, a Library, a Science Building and a Gymnasium. The Library is needed because of the increasing number of books that can no longer be housed in the Admin- istration Building. Furthermore, the constant reference to reading in the Forty-five courses implies a modern library building with its reading rooms, seminar centres, and all the equipment that makes for efficiency. The Science Building is a necessity because the department of Chemistry is badly cramped, and the Biology department has none too much space for its expanding work. We must have room for geology and astronomy. In addition we hope to provide an auditorium for five hundred people to accommodate our whole groups and to have a place for public services, lectures and student gatherings. The Gymnasium is just as necessary as the other buildings because we must have a real place for our physical training for our basketball games, for our other sports of every kind. It is a part of a modern man’s education to know how to swim. To this end we need a swimming pool. All of these pressing demands are to be met in our gymnasium. Our necessary building program that will cost at least $500,000.00 means changes on the campus, such as the removal and expansion of the Power House. But in addition it implies more help, greater overhead expense, more instructors for those who will want to come to Muhlenberg. To meet these needs another $500,000.00 will be called for. Consequently the Board of Trustees has resolved to begin a Million Dollar Campaign in 1924. Every Muhlenberg man wants to speak hopefully and encourag- ingly of this campaign. All are needed to help and none to hold back. LIBRARY 6V1LPIH0 Forty-six Senior Class History T HE famous Class of 1923 has almost arrived at the end of its journey. We are about to set out on another journey, a much longer one, we hope, and indeed a much more difficult journey than the one which we are about to complete. Let us take a retrospective glance and trace our journey from beginning to end. We boarded the train in September, 1919 and at the sound of the whistle were off. Our number was greater on this memorable day than it is now, but some on account of their destination were compelled to change trains while a few became weary of the journey and left us. We were a bit timid as beginners but we soon forgot our fears when we beheld the friendly face of the conductor whom some day we shall rise up and call blessed. We felt sure that he and his helpers would bring us safely to our destination, and on the other hand we were afraid, at times, that he would put us off the train. We called ourselves in the first stage of our journey Freshmen. The other members of the crew called us “green Frosh”, but we didn’t believe that we were “green Frosh” for it was our ambition to gain what knowledge we could. How nobly our bunch fought to uphold the honor of the class in the pole fight. We won this traditional event but the Sophs were even after the banner rush. After a short stop the conductor gave the signal and we proceeded on our journey, not as freshmen but as sophomores, for lo, we had laid aside childish things. Again we pursued our stride with diligence. We were satisfied with the happenings of “stunt day” for we felt sure that it was proper to conduct the freshmen according to the rules that had been placed before us. Our banquet was a howling success. During our absence, due to engine trouble, some criminals residing at Muhlenberg prompted the verdant Frosh to dastardly deeds. We were a spunky bunch and resenting this very much as an afront to our honor and position we routed them from their warm berths in the cold dead of night and endeavored to chastise them severely, reminding them to be more respect- ful in the future. Once more the train came to a stop and a few more of our companions left us. We had scarcely time to draw a breath however, until the whistle sounded, the conductor shouted, “All aboard” and we were again on our Forty-nine journey. At this point we noticed a few new faces in our midst. Some passengers seemed to have come from the wild west, but it wasn’t long until they became friendly, laying aside their guns and entering into football. We convinced them that football was as deadly a weapon as a 45- revolver. They worked hard and at several stops got off and brought back the scalps of Lehigh and Swarthmore. Our number was pleased with this for we boasted of a captain in 1922. Another change had taken place for we were recognized as “Juniors.” The ’23 CIARLA? Look at it, the best in the history of Muhlenberg. Our staff worked hard and faithfully and some are still working trying to keep out of jail. Of course the conductor knows nothing of this so we can go ahead until we feel secure again. Another event of importance was the “Ausflug”. The train stopped at Wescoesville and a few of our number ate so much that we were forced to place them safely in their berths before we could go on. The conductor seemed cross because of a loss of a night’s travel, but soon became friendly again, helping us in every way possible. We are on the last legs of our journey and we are making preparations to depart. We have burned the mid-night oil and struggled hard to complete the journey and now as it draws to a close we are about ready to step out into the world. We realize that we shall meet with sorrows and disappointments but we are going out with a determination to suc- ceed — to overcome sorrows and misfortunes and to attain that lofty goal for which we are striving — the betterment of mankind. Whatever our lot, we the class of 1923, realize what Muhlenberg has done for us and are grateful to her for it. In that final stage of the journey we “walked away” with the Class Basketball championship, proving our might on the campus. Our class has been the leader in the school both intellectually and athletically throughout its career and we are proud in being worthy of making such a statement. We have but a few more miles until the conductor will give us our “destination checks” and then we must work alone. We expect to attain a high place for ourselves, with that same ambition and spirit that carried us safely through our journey, and as we depart we will not shut our hearts to the good conductor and his helpers but will always cherish, thru them, pride and reverence for our Alma Mater.

Fifty -six RANDOM SNAPS A Short Historrj of the Indomitable Class ol 1924 As Freshmen Individual conceptions and hallucinations of college life, that we may have had prior to the Autumn of 1920, were quickly lost, on that first day when we gathered in Chapel, in the efforts of the Sophomores to get acquainted with us with their spirit of undue familiarity; for we then realized the autocratic possibilities of the second-year men. The natural reaction resulted in the organization of “24” that was effective, and which still maintains our superiority. Our Freshman year was fraught with social and athletic activities, as well as with activities not quite so pleasant. However! That Pole Fight was evidence of how we could pull together; the pri- mary and important event, that started us on our career of achievements. But Fellows! That Banner Scrap. I was loathe to mention it, for fear this history might be called a fish story ; but the manner in which we main- tained the supremacy of “24”, requires its mention at least. The illus- tration will afford a means of recalling the sight, if not the smell that was created on that day. College Day of 1920 has deep significance for us. On that day when the Grads, returned to their Alma Mater, we humiliated the Sophs, in front of “com- pany,” to the score of 13-3 in the annual Soph-Frosh Football Classic. Finally there came a day when we heard the Sophomore slyly whisper, “To- morrow is Stunt Day.” They came back at us with a vengeance. They had pre- pared a grand program of entertainment for themselves, including, “vodeville,” shoe-scrambles, peanut rolling contests, blindfold relay races, and other events which an outraged Sophomore only, is capable of preparing. They were not successful in curbing our mettle however, because the spirit of Muh- lenberg had taught us to keep smiling, and “24” had plenty of “stuff” such as men are made of. Our social accomplishments were attained under difficulties. This was probably caused as follows: Having been of an aggressive temperament, and not willing to let the Sophs “get away with anything,” we performed the uncon- ventional act of slightly dis-arranging their rooms, when they had their banquet. But such an uproar, and such a profan — , I mean profound use of language that resulted! We as unseasoned Freshmen, 13—3 ! ! THE BANNER SCRAP AS HUMBLE FRESHMEN Sixty-one could not understand why the Sophomores should become angry. We had been very careful where we placed their beds and other articles. How- ever, their ungentlemanly characters were evidenced in the results after our annual banquet, of which we have obtained evidence, as you may see to the left. Our scholastic standing was also high during this year, and we gave to the foot- ball squad a fine group of men, who distinguished themselves wonderfully. We had four men on the varsity cross-country team, and we were well represented in varsity basketball, baseball and track. We contributed valuable men to the Glee Club ; in fact our men had at all times after the banquet realized the meaning of our motto Carpe Diem — Sieze the opportunity. As Sophomores THE VICTORS We came back in September of 1921 with that same grit and determ- ination that characterized our class as Freshmen. We were then well fitted to play the part of host to the odd hundred Greenlings who had arrived. With the aid of their immature enthusiasm, the Freshmen won the pole-fight, but they could not prevent us from dragging “25” ruthlessly into the dust, in the relatively tame Banner-Scrap. The Soph-Frosh Football game resulted in a decisive victory for us. On Stunt Day we kindly yet forcibly played the part of host in a varied pro- gram of ludicrous activities. We have reproduced a few illustrations just to prove to you how ably we fulfilled this little role. Our Sophomore publications were very successful. Our Calendar was the best published for quite some time, and our football programs were financially successful. Our class athletic activities reached their climax, we believe, during this year, when we decisively won first place, and incidently the Silver Loving Cup offered by the Student Council, in the Inter-Class athletic contest. We registered our superiority in Basket- ball, Base- ball, Volley- u a i i, a u u Track. Our social activities, of which our banquet was a successful example be- THE SHOE SCRAMBLE came wider, in fact our ROLLING PEANUTS Sixty-two CIAPLA 1924 Sophomore year was a year of pleasant and successful scholastic, athletic, and social activities. There was 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 class mate. As Juniors As we left behind the second milestone and watched for what was in store for us, we soon learned that this was to be a year of still greater responsibilities. Athletically our activities became generalized in the activities of the college instead of the class primarily. As a result we furnished valuable material for the football, basketball, and baseball teams, and especially for the Track team and the Glee Club. Our main social event, where we created a new precedent, that is a dry (?) “Ausflug,” was one of n 24’s” most successful social achievements. The Pagan-Minister game was finally played after the studious had been aroused. Both sides were about equally matched and the result was a long and bitter struggle that ended in a scoreless tie. While these various activities were taking place, well laid plans were being evolv- ed and exe- cuted to pro- duce one of the best year books ever pub- lished at Muhlenberg, and now with the time of its appearance so near at hand, from all indications it proves to be the crown- ing achievement of a cooperating and energetic class. We look forward to the final lap of our intellectual race and feel that our Senior year will have in store for us, the final touch of scholarship which will fit 1924 for its career of service and usefulness in the devious highways of life. THE MINISTERS THE PAGANS Sixty-three CIAPLA 1924 John S. Ahhott T HIS darling- baby first saw the light of day on March 12, 1902, at Allentown, Penna. He attended the Allentown High School and then matriculated as a Freshman at Muhlenberg in the fall of 1920. Johnnie intends to take up the pro- fession of medicine, and is therefore spec- ializing in the pre-medical course. In athletics he is a versatile man, having taken part in class football, track, wrestling, and basketball. He is a member of the Sand- wich and A. H. S. clubs. In religion he is a Reformed and in politics a Republican. “JOHNNIE” 426 North Eighth Street Allentown, Penna. “One man cannot practice many arts with success.” T HIS handsome, broad-shouldered, young gentleman is a native of Allentown, and the town may cer- tainly feel proud of him. In September of 1920, he entered Muhlenberg, and without him the locker-room would be a quiet place. Were it not for Johnny, however, the peace and order of it would be poor. It is thru him that the Freshman day- students get their rules and regulations as to their wearing apparel as well as conduct. Continually are the members of the Sandwich Club kept in good humor because of his stories which may be true or false. If you want entertain- ment for about an hour, just ask John about his High School experiences, especially in his French Classes. He finds time to read the modern authors, to do research work in Chem- istry, to liven up the Physics lectures, and to act as monitor of the Library. He apparently was faithful over a few things, until now he has become ruler over many things. John is by no means a misogynist, for every Friday evening, he may be seen walking South on Eighth Street at about 9:00 P. M., and loafing in the vicinity of St. Paul’s Church. He maintains the idea, that “music hath its c-harms.” Sixty-five 731 West Broad Street Quakertown, Penna. “To the idle all days are holidays.” S OME men are much in evidence on our campus because of their mouths or their scholastic or athletic activ- ities. However this man, of whom I am writing, is here, he studies here, when necessary to study, and hopes to get a diploma when they are given out to the class. The town from which he comes is not one of his merits because no one would accuse Quakertown of being con- spicuous. His name is only one of the names on our class roll like the rest — just, E. Richard Acker, nothing great from it but there are hopes. But what makes him known to his fellows is the distinctive way he wears his hair. I think that it is not shined with 2-in-l as some do but the shine is there, and the side burns are there and these things have caused us to dub him “Vaselino” which all movie fans will see is a cut down from Valentino. He has ambitions like every other college fellow, seems to me he told me that his was, “three acres and a mule in a country parish” and with all that this implies we are inclined to say it is a worthy ambition. And now we are wishing him a great lot of success, a good wife and family, and a happy hereafter. E RICHARD was born at Eas ' ton, Pa., just 45 days before Christmas, 1903, or to be exact on the 10th of Novem- ber. He prepared at the Quakertown High School and landed at Muhlenberg in Sep- tember, 1920. He is enrolled in the A. B. course and intends to enter the seminary. Just to help pass the time Dick helped in the College Band and orchestra and also was the Assistant Editor of the Football program committee. He is a member of the Bucks County club and the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. Dick has not decided his political status as yet, since he has a few years left till he casts his first ballot. His religion is Lutheran. “VASELINO” “DICK” Sixty-six CIAPLA 1924 Sterling F. Basliore 853 Garfield Avenue Schuylkill Haven, Penna. “Give him a problem or theorem to work. And all other duties he gladly will shirk.’’ I N his Freshman year Sterling saw an open field of endeavor in the Muhlen- berg WEEKLY which was in dire need of highly trained reporters with opportunities to some position of honor on its staff. His issues of the WEEKLY prove the progress he has made while on the staff. The class of 1924 has always found him a loyal booster and an able leader across the stormy seas, always on the job, fighting against odds, but having the best welfare of the class in mind. Football, Muhlenberg WEEKLY, Y. M. C. A., and assisting St. Peter on earth at the chapel door, these all have claim- ed part of his ti me, but yet, what is perhaps most surprising is that he has managed rather cleverly to run at the head of the race for scholastic honors. Some of us, opponents for the title are inclined to believe that he is running on springs of reputation which push him forward with a mighty force and carry him safely over the rocky roads. Sterling always showed a contempt for popular music, but ever since Christmas he tells us that ‘Three O’clock in the Morning’ is a wonderful song. Why the sudden revolution in this man’s attitude, we don’t know, we are only hoping that some day our curiosity will be satisfied. S CHUYLKILL HAVEN claims Sterl. as a native son and statistics show that he was born on the third day of April, 1902. He broke scholastic records at the Schuylkill Haven H. S. before he entered Muhlenberg in 1920. His intended life work is the Lutheran ministry. Besides being- on the honor roll, “Bay” finds lots of time for diversities, such as Chairman of Bible Study, Y. M. C. A. Cabinet; Associate Editor of CIARLA; Junior Representative to I. O. U.; President of his class in his Junior year and Vice-President in his Sophomore year. He is a member of the Contemporary club and loudly proclaims and upholds the Wilsonian principles. Sixty-seven Clarence Edward Beerweiler Jersey Shore, Penna. “A little learning is a dangerous thing.” {4 ' ” UTIE” hails from that remark - I able town — Jersey Shore. Did you ever hear of it before? Neither did we until we came in contact with Beerie and then we quickly learned that it must be a wonderful place. There is not a single man in the Junior class who did not feel a bit blue when a long siege of typhoid fever caus- ed Clarence to leave school this year, and we are anxiously awaiting his re- turn next year. Clarence is a real man. Before we write another thing, we want to inform you that he stands in very good graces with the faculty by reason of his extraordinary ability — but do not become misinformed — he is not a ‘boner’ — oh yes, he studies now and then, but only in between the Friday nights he visits at the Crest. He has been on the Glee Club during the past year, and helped in this way to spread Muhlenberg’s fair name. He was the Editor of the 1924 Calendar; worked on numerous assignments for the WEEKLY; and while ministering to the wants of the football men day after day, also found time to lay the plans for the 1924 CIARLA in his official cap- acity as Editor-in-Chief. j j T) EERIE” was born at Jersey Shore, Penna., September 26, 1901. Pre- paratory to entering Muhlenberg, he studied at Jersey Shore High School. Forced to leave school on account of sick- ness early this year, Beerie had partici- pated in numerous school activities, being on the cross-country and track squad in his Freshman year, and on the WEEKLY Staff and Press Club in his Sophomore year. In his first year he was also class Secretary and in his second year, he was Editor of the Sophomore Calendar. He was a mem- ber of the Glee Club and had been Assist- ant Manager of football before he left this year. Fraternally he is a Phi Kappa Tau. He expects to be a surgeon some day, hav- ing taken the B. S. course. He votes the Independent ticket and is a member of the Lutheran church. “CUTEE” “BEERIE” Sixty-eight CIAPLA 1924 482 North First Street Lehighton, Penna. “How sweet are stolen kisses.” B EFORE we advance any farther, we want you to meet Harold, the blonde gentleman from Lehighton, who is very efficient in wooing a young lady, in driving a Ford car, in waiting on tables, and in other things almost too numerous to mention. In fact Harold is one of the few boys in the class of 1924, who are married. He claims that the only thing necessary to conclusively unite him with his life- long mate is a good Episcopalian minis- ter’s blessing which will assure him hap- piness the remainder of his life. His ambition and persistence to make good has acquired for him a great many friends on the campus and he has always been an inspiration to his track-mates, who probably sometimes find it hard to endure the daily grind. Talking about inspiration, mention ought to be made of the ‘pep’ he puts into that part of the student body which can only sit and wait for the re- sults of the struggles on the gridiron, basketball floor, or baseball diamond. Much credit is due to such a cheer-leader any day. In conclusion, Harold has always up- held the honor of his class and his Alma Mater, scholastically. After he leaves us, class of 1924, and Muhlenberg wishes him the greatest success, for nothing but great deeds are expected of him. “BLONDY H AROLD boasts of Lehighton, Pa., as his birthplace and celebrates his birth- day on September 26th. His age? Oh, yes. We almost omitted it. Cutie was born in 1901, so figure it out for yourself. He was graduated from Lehighton High School and entered Muhlenberg in 1920. Since then he was mixed up in a variety of pastimes, including varsity track, class basketball, class track, class baseball, and Assistant Cheer Leader. He is an Episco- palian, and favors the Democratic party. His modesty prevents him from making public his future aims. However we are sure they are worth while. Sixty- nine CIAPLA 1924 Rovjal Daniel Benner Catasauqua, Penna. “Your deeds speak more eloquently for you than the words you have just uttered.” T HIS little sawed-off, hammered-down piece of stupidity, whose face you see here, is none other than our own petite Benner. He’s small it’s true, but he’s far from harmful. He may be like ned to a mosquito — harmless but an awful nuisance. His buzz however is much worse than his bite. Besides raving about his home town, Benner’s other chief occupation is play- ing basket-ball at which he is quite the Duke’s Knuckles. The only thing that kept him from making the Varsity is his size. If he had about six inches stuck on him he would be a basketball player hard to beat. Altho he plays forward at basketball, in the game of love he is rather back- ward. But that’s not the girls’ fault, for they are just wild about him. (He him- self told us that almost all his lady friends are ‘Wild’ — but I guess he was kidding us.) He wins the Booby prize in parlor athletics. We doubt if he’s been on more than two dates in all his years at College. But some day he’ll meet “the Girl” and then all will be lost. ‘She’ surely will have to be some girl to equal ‘Chief.’ We wish him the greatest of success in Life which we feel sure he will achieve. R OYAL entered the world November 5, 1900 at Catasauqua, Pa. He received his primary education at the Catasau- qua High School and then entered Muhlen- berg in the fall of 1920. “Chief” imme- diately became popular and was elected Class Secretary, Vice-President, Manager of Class Basketball, and Assistant Business Manager of the CIARLA, during his car- eer at Muhlenberg. He is a B.S. student and intends to startle the world as a bac- teriologist in the near future. “Chief” is also active in athletics, being on the varsity basketball squad, and taking part in class baseball, basketball, and football. He be- longs to the Lutheran church. He also is a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. “CHIEF” Seventy CIAPLA 1924 Alfred Milton Dietricli 21 South Eleventh Street Allentown, Penna. “Keep a guard on your tongue, especially over the wine.” A LFRED was quite active in class athletics and during his Freshman year scrubbed for a berth on the varsity basket-ball team. It was partly thru his efforts, during his Freshman year, that the class of ’24 was victorious over the “Sophs” in the annual gridiron scrap. During his travels with Chautauqua this past summer, he journeyed thru Canada and due to the prohibition officer’s laxity (?) was able to bring a small amount of the forbidden beverage back home with him. This he intended to use for a Lehigh victory, or the first important one. When the opportunity presented itself, “Ditts” forgot all about the “firewater.” His mother, later, used it in mince pies. Outside of being a general nuisance in chapel and religion class, Alfred is an all round good fellow. His main weakness is “Wild Women.” This is an honest fact, because never a day passes, without one seeing “Ditts” coming from the office with no less than three letters. Yes, “Don” is a fine chap and if he keeps on boning in the future, the way he has been doing in the past, we can prophesy for “Don” that he will be able to hang out his shingle with an M. D. after his name. A LFRED MILTON was born at Allen- town, February 29, 1904. Did you notice the day? February 29. Ac- cording to birthdays, Ditz is a child wonder, as he will celebrate his fifth birthday next year. He prepared at Schuylkill Seminary and matriculated at Muhlenberg in the B.S. course, with the medical profession in mind. He was active in class athletics, particularly football. He also played class basketball, and is an Assistant Advertising Manager of the CIARLA. The Sandwich club claims him as a member and he is suspected of being a Republican. Alfred is Lutheran. “DITZ” “DON” Seventy-one CIAPLA 1924 r Albert S. Erb 225 North Twelfth Street Allentown, Penna. “Virtue is relative to the actions and ages of each of us in all that we do.” U npretentious is the most sal- ient characteristic of our talented young classmate. To glance upon his photo, one would conclude that this gentleman is unquestionably affable — but ah! dear reader, that is the very difficulty encountered by the biographer. His true nature however was reveal- ed when it was learned that Cupid had banded his heart and fortune to the supreme qualities of one of Allentown’s social debutantes in the festal days of the “Mistle Toe.” Our Alma Mater has the unique dis- tinction of his presence within her halls. “Al’s” enviable reputation has been established in the Black Diamond City as a distinguished juvenile violinist. The infinite realm of tone has become finite to him thru his Stradivarius. His ‘bel- canto’ violin has been heard across the sweep of the Appalachian Blue within the circle of musical critics in the city of Smoke. The context of this seems to reveal clearly the vocation of our esteemed classmate. May Orpheus enroll him upon the ladder of Fame, as he now stands upon the rung of success. We feel certain that the spoils of his musical career will some day be recorded on the “Victor.” UT) inkie ” was born at Philadelphia, I Penna., August 8, 1901. He prepar- ed to enter Muhlenberg at Allentown High School and has since distinguished himself as a violinist of note. Intending to take up the profession of teaching, he de- cided to specialize in science. He is a member of Delta Theta fraternity, and be- longs to the A. H. S. club. “Al” is a staunch Democrat and a member of the Lutheran Church. “AL” “PINKIE” Seventy-tiro CIAPLA 1924 Pitt Street Samuel Ettinger ’Tis shameful to stumble twice over the same stone.’ Carlisle, Penna. D ID you ever see a small, dark com- plexioned, rather stoop-shouldered, young man sitting at the steering- wheel of a Studebaker machine with his nice, little girl-friend seated at his right, assisting him and giving him advice (what else could she be doing?) as they sped ahead across the campus ? If you did. you at least remember his face and should be anxious to know his name. That man is Samuel Ettinger. In spite of the fact that ‘Sam’ is in business, he still finds time to hang around the High School building, espec- ially at noon time. We do not know whether it is the meals or the waitresses which attract him the most. We were just wondering about that, doncha know. ‘Sambo’ is also famous as a militarist. One calm and pleasant day in January, in the couise of a peaceful Physics lec- ture, Shoemaker and he had a ‘fall out,’ apparently for no reason whatsoever. The two opponents were well matched and the fight was very thrilling. Shoe- maker says he won the scrap, Ettinger says he did. We’ll leave it to Professor Deck, who intercepted one of Shoemak- er’s uppercuts, to decide that point. It’s not in our field, doncha know. Some day we expect to see Sam as the proprietor of a prosperous tailoring- establishment. Good luck to you Sam. UPAM” was born at Vitebsk, Russia, May 5, 1902. He prepared at Car- lisle High School and is enrolled in the Philosophical course, intending to make business his profession. He votes the Dem- ocratic ticket and is an Hebrew. ‘SAM.” “SAMBO’ Seventy-three C1APLA 1924 Alexander Hamilton Fedko 1430 Newport Avenue Northampton, Penna. “For silence witnesses unwillingness.” T HIS is Alexander Hamilton Fedko, and he hails from the wild berg of Northampton. We do not know much about him, as he is a quiet fellow, and spends some of his spare time in the vicinity of West Berks, where he goes to loaf with the fellows and where he is usually found in a corner of the room reading one of the daily papers. He believes that all edu- cation does not consist in book learning. We have no idea as to how he spends his time while in Northampton, but we believe that he is one of the heroes of the place as he is unusually quiet around College, which goes to say that he may be a hero in his own home town, as college men are usually in demand in hamlets such as Northampton. Fedko has ambitions of becoming a lawyer and we think that this profession would exactly fit in with a fellow such as Fedko, as all quiet men are reputed to be thinkers — one of the requirements of a good lawyer. We hope that in future years he will put his town on the map for something bigger than what she stands for at the present time. So “Good Luck, Fedko”, the class wishes you luck in your further undertakings. F EDKO is a graduate of Northampton High School. He is twenty years of age, having been born April 5, 1903. Three clubs claim him as a member: North- ampton High, Sandwich and Koal Krackers Klub. ‘Alex’ is trying to persuade the profs that he is worthy of a Ph.B. after his name. He intends to become a lawyer. In religion he is an Orthodox Catholic; in pol- itics, a Republican. Alex was born at Shamokin, Pa. “ALEX” Seventy-four CIARLA Russel A. Flower ‘Days of absence, I am weary — She, my love, is far away.” T HIS young man originally went by the appellation, Russel Aller Flower, but we have chosen to call him just simply, ‘Musty.’ Musty was born in the little burg of Gouldsboro, October the Eighth, 1900. After attending Allentown Preparatory School, he decided to matriculate in the Liberal Arts course at Muhlenberg. Flower became famous as the classy catcher of our baseball team. In our Sophomore year, Musty was president of the class, and in our Freshman year he had charge of our finances. Two clubs claim his membership; the A. P. S. and the Koal Krackers Klub. He is a Lutheran and a staunch believer in the G. O. P. 4 " KTOW let me see, when do I go home again?” That’s “Musty” " ■ ' all over. Some of the fellows have been thinking that it is getting- serious. You know that when a fellow begins talking about — gee whiz, Musty, we came near telling all these people about it but we don’t want to give any of your secrets away. His favorite occupation when he is not at home, is sitting in front of the fire- place thinking. We don’t know what he thinks about, but this might be the way he gets out his lessons. In his Freshman year he was the star catcher of that victorious base ball team. Then when the varsity was organized he played on that. He took part in many of the school activities, from helping to run dances to beating the base drum in the band. There are some fellows who may be popular and yet it does not always follow that they are always liked by all. But Musty is. We don’t know of any one thing to attribute this to. There are so many qualities that make up his personality. And yet we don’t think that we could give him a greater compliment than just to say that he is a regular good fellow. " MUSTY” Seventy-five James Russel Gardner R. F. D. No. 2 Howard, Penna. “Fire in each eye and papers in each hand. Vociferously he raves, recites, and maddens round the land.” T HIS gentleman is thirty-two summers young-, having been born August 25, 1891. Before matriculating at Muhlen- berg, as an A.B. student Gardner was a student at Taylor University. In addition to being a student in our midst, he is also the pastor of Pilgrim Holiness Church, Howard, Pa., and a professor at Beulah Park Bible School, Allentown, Pa. In other words he is a member of the two insepar- able and invaluable professions: teaching and preaching. V OCIFEROUS, and argumentative is Gardner. His serious frown and ceaseless flow of critical wrath are brought down upon practically every- thing from rings and card playing to dancing. Of course, we all know, this serious looking man from Howard has his reasons. Reverend Gardner is a deeply religious man w-ho is greatly interested in the spread of Christianity and in “the saving of souls,” being a pastor of the Inter- national Holiness denomination. He has accepted a professorship in their school at Beulah Park, Allentown. ' According to the latest reports, he is very suc- cessful as a teacher and as a pastor in his home church at Howard. But just glance at his picture again, at his high forehead and his other bumps of knowledge. They do not deceive you. For in the classroom, Rev. Gardner has won the respect and admiration of all his fellow students, especially those in “Doc” Wright’s class. Besides being a student of high stand- ing, he is also a great athlete, being interested in Marathons. He has the record for running the fastest from the Ad building to the Switch: time 1 min., 23 sec. " REVEREND” Seventy-six CIAPLA 1924 Minton Randolph Grimmett Palmyra, Illinois B EHOLD the last of the Four Horse- men, Minton Randolph Grimmett, or as we commonly know him, plain ‘Grub.’ Grub hails from Palmyra, 111., in which state he was born September 12, 1900. He is a graduate of Palmyra High, a Ph.B. student and a member of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. Grimmett came to our school the same year Johnnie Spiegel did and has played on the Varsity for two years. He is a member of Pan-Hellenic Council, a Republican and one of our future prosperous business men. “GRUB” “Men are men ; they needs must err.” E AST is West. When the history of Muhlenberg is written for the year 1921, there will be something to say about the defeat of Lehigh, and many other things, but that isn’t all. There will be a story of how the West siw the East and became infatuated, and the West was the East thereafter. “Grub,” alias “two-gun” Grimmett, the quickest draw in the state of Illinois has been a regular pilgrim to a shrine in Emaus, most dear to his heart. “Grub” is one of the most collegiate boys on the campus, and is a terror to all the Frosh. His greatest delight is to see some Frosh b reaking a rule and then to ride him. Underclassmen who do not know him very well, stay far away from him, but to those of us who are more familiar with him, he is almost harmless. There are not many fellows on the campus who ever knew “Grub,” who will not remember him after we are out of college as the big, husky fellow who had to push the “hell-wagon” around the football field alone. Grimmett expects to enter the busi- ness profession after he is out of college and with his smile and seriousness com- bined he can’t help being a success. Seventy-seven Jacob Emerson Hartman Lemington Avenue Pittsburgh, Penna. “Thinking naught done, while aught remained undone.” J ACOB EMERSON HARTMAN first saw the light in the smoky city of Pittsburg on the 23rd day of September, 3 o’clock in the morning, Anno Domini 1902. After he found that his capacity for imbibing wisdom was too great at Peabody High and Thiel College he decided to give Muhlenberg a chance. At once he made good both in athletics and scholastics. Starring on the football line, singing on the Glee Club, and directing the Mission-Study groups are his principal activities. Jack is a Republican, but what is more important, a Lutheran and a student volunteer. He is a member of the Phi Kappa Tau’s. B EHOLD the visage of Venus de Milo’s side-kick. Gentle reader, without a doubt you recall the old adage, “Handsome is he who handsome does.” Jack is no exception. His valiant deeds are too numerous to mention. Suffice it to say that he is one of the stalwarts of Coach Spiegel’s football team. Jack is a tower of strength on the line. It is his great offensive play- ing that has caused much anguish and fear to his opponents and his equally great offensive playing that has been the cause of the large ground gaining of Berg’s great teams. As valuable as he is to the football team, so is he equally as valuable to the Glee Club. The success of the club during the last two years is due in a large measure to the work of “our hero(?).” Not only does he sing well, but he also plays in the Mandolin Club, where he shakes a mean pick. Jack is also an ardent admirer and devotee of the art of Terpischore. He is in his glory when gliding over the old waxed floor with the soft white arms of a bonny lass entwined affectionately around his manly neck. And can any of us fail to recall this familiar cry “Hartman, Jack Hartman on the phone”? Need we say more? With all these faults, however Jack is a prince of a chap. None of us have any fears for his success in Life. Go to it old boy. “JACK” Seventy-eight CIARLA 1221 Allen Street 1924 Elwood Vincent Helfricli Allentown, Penna. “Let each one exercise his best known art.” H ERE he is, no less a person than the illustrious Elwood Vincent Helfrich — son of old man Helfrich. He is a rare combination of student, author, athlete, critic and ladies’ man. He has been an Honor man every year so far and we expect him to continue his success in this line. For references as to his ability to handle a pen, just look at some of the “WEEKLI ES” he has edited. Why even he himself told us that they were quite the ‘berries,’ so they must be. Last year he aspired to a position on our football eleven, but when he discovered that he would have to stop smoking Camels he turned in his suit. He says that he is going out for track this year. We think he will until he finds out that he has to quit smoking. So much for his ath- letic career. Frickie’s chief occupation is “razzing’. His chief vocation is ‘raz- zing’. His chief pleasure is ‘razzing.’ In fact he’ll razz anything and every- thing from a Senior on down to a Sat- urday School student. We hooe he will pick a good wife who will inspire him to achieve the success we know is due him. T HIS versatile young man, yet undecided as to his calling, was born in the wonderful city of Allentown, Pa., August 25, 1903. After completing his preparation at Allentown High; Woodie matriculated as a Scientific student at our Alma Mater. He belongs to the Reformed church and votes the Republican ticket. He took part in class football, class volleyball, and class track whenever occasion demand- ed. Besides being a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity, Elwood is engaged in many other activities. He is an asso- ciate Editor of the WEEKLY, and Assistant Business Manager of the CIARLA. “WOODIE” “FRICKIE” J Seventy-nine r CIAPLA 1924 Paul Herbert Hildebrand 53 Eighty-Sixth Street Brooklyn, N. Y. “Huntsmen pursue the hare with hounds, and flatterers hunt the fool with praises.” P OPE was born in New York, November 12, 1901. He prepared at Allentown Prep, and upon his entrance here soon made his presence felt. He was on the Track Squad in his first two years and a Varsity Cross Country runner in his Sopho- more year. He was Assistant Business Manager of the 1922 Calendar and is now a member of the Student Council and Pan- Hellenic Council. Although he is taking a Scientific course, Pope has not decided upon his profession, which may be medicine. He belongs to the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity, the A. P. S. club, and Empire State club. He is an Independent voter and holds to the Lutheran faith. £4T_TALLUP there, hallup there, my j! I name ’s Pope and I’m on the Student Council,” also “I come from Brooklyn, N. Y.” These are the characteristic expressions of his Royal Highness Hildebrand. As for his ap- pearance, all I can say is that he is one of those tall, dizzy blondes. Take a look at the picture which accompanies this write-up and you will surely be convinced that he was born in the spring of the year, for he certainly is one of those love-sick sharpies. Laying aside “Pope’s” outstanding characteristcs, I can also say that this bird has a wicked line. In anything at all which you may wish to discuss with him, he can always hold his ground. I would, however, advise that you talk to him about the better sex for in that only does he excel the average (so he thinks). This Brooklynite also has some liter- ary ability. He attempts to write skits for such occasions as The Junior Ausflug and Muhlenberg Night at the Orpheum, but his most successful productions are his attempts in love-poetry on which his woman has a monopoly. I can assure you that “Pope” will make a success of his life, even if he should be compelled to accept a position on Hap Nenow’s Street Sanitation Force. But here’s looking at you “Pope,” the best of success, treat her right and often too. " POPE” Eighty 121 Hamilton Street Allentown, Penna. “Firm in friendship, high in ideals.’ EVEREND” is a native Allentonian. He is a graduate of the Mosser Grammar School and of the Allen- town High School. He is a non-fraternity man and an A.B. student. A brief survey of his clerical connections might be of in- terest. In 1920 he was licensed to preach in the Reformed Church by action of Lehigh Classis and is now in charge of St. John’s, Summit Lawn, and General Supply Pastor for the Classis. ‘The Reverend’ is inter- ested in missions, has done some local mission work, is a representative of the Reformed Church Messenger and an organ- izer of rural Sunday Schools. Hucke is quite adept at the piano, a member of the Sandwich club, and an ardent Democrat. T HIS jolly, robust-looking young man came to us just three years ago. At that time, he appeared as green as any Freshman, but now the light of intelligence is beginning to shine from his eyes. He has undergone a great metamor- phosis. There has been formed out of the unshaped clay a figure of known pro- portions. A man of great argumenta- tive power, a man whose bump of cur- iosity is extraordinarily large, a man who is a firm believer of the old adage, “Seek and ye shall find.” One of the “Reverend’s” weaknesses, or rather shall we say one of his strong points is his love for dogs. Give him a good dog, and 99.8% of his desires are answered. Begging your kind indulgence, glance once again at the photograph, and ob- serve the firm and aggressive type of chin, the laughing blue eyes, the broad and intelligent looking forehead. Don’t you think he ought to make a “hit” with the fair sex? But, pst! According to reliable sources, we should not be very much surprised to hear of his engage- ment in the near future. Well, the best of luck to you, “Rev- erend.” •HOOKEY” “REVEREND” Eighty -one CIAPLA 1924 Knute J. Jolmson 206 West First Avenue “Do great deeds, without making great promises.” Flandreau, S. D. N OW, dear friends, we wish to pre- sent to you one who hails from the cold, bleak wilds of South Dakota, Knute Johnson by name. I am sure that Knute needs no introduction whatsoever. But in order to give those who are not so familiar with him an opportunity to be- come better acquainted, it may be wise to tell a few secrets about him. The first thing we wish to tell about him is no secret; namely, his career as an athlete. Knute came here from the University of Wisconsin in the Fall of 1921. Having played on the Freshman team of the University (the one year ruling keeping him from the Varsity team), he had no trouble in becoming a member of our victorious football team. He earned, as well as received, his letter each year. He also entered into the other athletic activities with great en- thusiasm. Now, we want to mention a little about his scholastic abilities. Whenever Knute has any spare time he devo tes it to his studies, for which we give him much credit. Knute has also been fortunate enough to become a member of the Delta Theta Fraternity. The class of 1924 wishes you as much luck as is possible to be wished upon one who stands out as a man among his classmates. T HE date of Knute’s birth is December 6th, 1899. Knute is a graduate of Flandreau High School, of his native town. He is a member of the Delta Theta fraternity and a Ph.B. student. We must not forget to mention that Knute was an ‘M’ man on the famous 1921 Varsity and an ‘M’ man on the 1922 Varsity Football Squad. In religion, he is a Lutheran. He intends to engage in finance. “KNUTE” Eighty-two CIAPLA 1924 Robeson Street Robesonia, Penna. “The best goods always come in small packages.” ut a r H ° is that small, wise-looking YV fellow, the one with the blonde ’ ” hair and wearing specs,” asks the casual visitor? We inform him that, that personage is none other than Paul Katzaman or using the more familiar campus cognomen, “Uncle Paul.” In spite of the fact that “Uncle Paul” is a very industrious student, he neverthe- less finds time to go home on occasional week ends, and at other times to play a quiet little game of “Haus.” But you ask, why does he go home so often? Well, confidentially now, — he says that he is a deacon in his church and must help to lift the offering. This will probably explain the fact that “Uncle” is quite flush after those trips home. Now for a little history. When he came here as a Sophomore he had, and in fact still has, a brilliant record of scholastic achievements. In spite of that however, he was an unassuming chap (note the change please) until mid-years when he told the Frosh where their place was. Now, it seems, that with the pass- ing weeks he has adopted Prof. Coue’s phrase with adaptations, “Every day in every way I am getting harder and harder.” Be that as it may, we all say, “Ray for Katzaman, the next Mayor of Robesonia.” P AUL LEVI KATZAMAN was born in Robesonia, Pa., June 23, 1897, and came to Muhlenberg, after preparing at Womelsdorf High School and Keystone State Normal School. He is taking the Liberal Arts course and belongs to the K. S. N. S. club. He is a staunch Democrat, and a member of the Lutheran church. His future profession will be teaching. “UNCLE PAUL’’ Eighty-three Truman Lester Koehler K OEHLER was born at Bethlehem, Penna., August 3, 1903. He prepared to enter Muhlenberg at Bethlehem High School and is now enrolled in the Scientific course. He intends to make teaching his future profession. Truman is a member of the Sandwich club, which he habitually enlivens with his after-dinner arguments. He is a Democrat and a mem- ber of the Lutheran church. Bethlehem, Penna. “For even tho vanquished, he could argue still ’ N EVER hear of Koehler? Well of course, not everybody has heard of this brilliant chap. But live and learn. Always keen for an argument, he is generally to be found in a debate advo- cating the advantage of the farm as the ideal place for a man of affairs to with- draw from the distracting influence of the fair sex, or proving conclusively that woman suffrage, the Volstead Act and the Bonus Bill are failures. His tendency toward competitive verbal ath- letics bring him constantly in the lime light in that unhappy hunting ground where all puerile doubts are quickly laid low by the powerful resort to Logic. We have those things. And passing on we come to graver things. Despite the aforementioned per- iodic polemics directed against ambitious women office holders, Koehler is known to have an astonishing following among the fair flowers of Bethlehem. Despite his attachment to the country, he has decided to forsake the cows and chickens, and apply his best efforts to attain fame and facility in the medical world. As an undergraduate, his prim- ary interest has been the course in the scientific departments, where his work has been outs tanding. Eighty-four CIAPLA 1924 Harold LeRovj Kremser 33 North Fourth Street Emaus, Penna. ‘Life’s treasures lie in action.” T HIS serious looking young man is well known to the day students. Especially do the Freshmen day students know him. This is due to the fact that Harold is a member of Student Council and also proctor of the Ad. building, which means that he must see to it that the locker rooms are kept clean. This young man is the son of a pros- perous Emaus barber and has a little ex- perience in this line of work. But he has higher aspirations, in that he wishes to become a doctor. Judging by the success he had at teaching and the atti- tude he takes at college there is no doubt that Harold will make good. He takes a great interest in Bacteriology and after completing his course at medi- cal school he intends to specialize in Pathology. His best friends at college can not recall that they ever saw Harold with a woman but rumor has it that he has a friend. When asked about this, he remarked that he was definitely “fixed” and settled in regards to this jnatter. The inference is that he has a steady friend located somewhere. H AROLD was born at Emaus, Penna., November 10, 1896. He entered Muh- lenberg in the Fall of 1921, after pre- paring at Keystone State Normal School. He belongs to that “supreme judicial body,” the Student Council, and commands the lofty position of proctor in the Ad build- ing. He has chosen medicine as his pro- fession, is taking the Scientific course, and is a Phi Epsilon man. He is a non-partisan in politics and belongs to the Moravian church. ‘HERALD’’ Eighty-five ' LU” CIAPLA 1924 Lutlier Hendricks Kroninger L uther hendricks kroninger was born at Allentown, October 22, 1902. Fraternally he is a Delta Theta. He is a member of the A. P. S. and Sand- wich clubs, a graduate of Allentown Prep. School, a scientific student and a prospective florist. Religiously speaking, Lu is a Luth- eran; politically, a Republican. Athlet- ically, we all remember him for the part he played in class football and class basket- ball. Luther is the Advertising Manager of this CIARLA. Fifteenth and Linden Streets Allentown, Penna. “That love should so change men, that one can hardly swear they are the same,” H ERE is the religious member of the Pagan Group. Every Sunday night he is found in church trying to re- form — •. As a scholar he is a shining light and is well known to all professors never to cut classes nor to come late (???) He is especially well known to all commuters as the driver of the grey Rolls Royce and all make way for him. Five conductors and motormen have quit their jobs with the L. V. T. Co. for fear of this young cyclone. The faculty had a special meeting because of him and passed a ruling that fifteen miles an hour be the maximum speed allowed on the campus. Luther hopes to be a florist and is quite an adept at throwing the stuff so high used by all to make the flowers grow. Girls? No. It is only singular and that is a serious form. While at the hospital during the summer he was noted for receiving Special Delivery letters. The case might be diagnosed thus: A Packard is the machine, The girl is Irene, The driver is Lu, Now that will do! Eiglity-six CIAPLA 552 Main Street Stanley M. Kurtz East Greenville, Penna. “What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing.” L ET us now present a gentleman who you, kind readers, absolutely dare not pass without learning a few secrets that we are disclosing here. Close your eyes, ladies and let your imagination wander concerning this gentleman who is one of the greatest assets to our class. Mr. Kurtz is an encyclopedia of in- formation as to the Mountainville Fire Co. Hall, The Eagles’ Roof, Mealeys and so on. He will volunteer any informa- tion as to the Traylor on a Saturday night and knows the secrets of that building on Turner St. near 5th, i.e., after a football game especially. This gentleman has a remarkable ability as a contortionist and thus is in line for the cheerleadership for next year. Besides these accomplishments he has indescribable abilities, due to the adoption of Dr. Coue’s theory, of whom he is an ardent admirer. ‘Stan’ is now at the stage where he will smoke any “given” number of cigarettes but by all means prefers those that “are toasted.” East Greenville claims this young man as Her Own and it is with all sincerity that we say this. The many flying visits are always given a reception by the many villagers, the Quakertown Band, and the Fire Companies. This is about all the information we dare give but if more is desired, on the receipt of a stamped and addressed envelope, the same will be forth-coming. S TANLEY was born at East Greenville, April 23, 1902 and in due process of time was graduated from East Green- ville High School. All of us remember the strong defense that ‘Stan’ put up in the Pagan-Minister struggle. At football games ‘Stan’ officiates as assistant cheerleader and also as Manager of the College Band. In religion he is a Lutheran, in politics a Democrat. He has not decided the question of his lifework, as yet. " STAN” Eighty-seven 1924 Jacob J. Levtj 623 North Fourth Street Allentown, Penna. “A better man does not exist. A STEADY, clean-minded, jolly, fel- low with a smile straight from the heart — that’s “Doc,” the finest gentleman we have ever met. After graduating from the Stevens School, he entered Allentown High School, and in his Senior Year was honored with the position of “Exchange Editor of the Canary and Blue.” He graduated from this institution in 1920, and entered Muhlenberg College the following fall. “Doc” has also a great reputation as a singer, being a bass soloist in the Synagogue of the Sons of Israel. This may be the reason that his clear voice stands out so prominently during the singing at Chapel Service. Besides be- ing a singer, he is also a student of the piano and pipe organ. He is a student of Rev. Hucke, for whom he played at many a church service, and under whose direction he gave a famous organ recital, which won great fame for him among Music Lovers. As to the ladies, well . . . from the latest reports we expect to hear of his engagement any day. “Doc” has had many candidates, but we think that he has at last made a final choice. Good luck to you, Doc. J ACOB J. (may be Joseph) LEVY resides at 623 N. 4th Street, Allentown, Pa., and was born on the ninth day of the cold and cutting month of February, 1902. ‘Doc’ came to Muhlenberg from Allentown High in just the proper spirit and in just the proper year, for the class of 1924 is proud of him as it is of all its worthy members. ‘Doc’ is taking the B. S. course (and we might add that the course is not taking him), and intends to take up medi- cine as his lifework. “DOC” Eiglity-eiglit CIAPLA 1924 Charles Adam Mathias 820 Penn Avenue “Culture maketh Wyomissing, Penna. gentle man.” Y ES, this is “Chick” from Wyomis- sing-, that swell place ( ? ) just out- side of Reading. Oh, you didn’t know that that was his nickname, you always call him ‘Matt,’ but really ‘Chick’ is right. Just ask Gertie or Gertrude, she knows him pretty well. Oh yes, he claims to be an avowed woman hater, but we have our doubts, as he is always talking about his future wife and life in some town as the most fashionable minister. Charles is quite a singer ( ? ) too, for he has been given a berth in the Chapel Choir. Getting down to facts, Charles is a student for he studies some, even tho he is considered as one of the rough- necks, who take moonlight walks on Gordon Street at midnight. He is an inhabitant of the famous East Berks Hall, 1st floor, and it is said that ‘Chick’ has gained quite a physique trying to juggle his roommate. ‘Chick’s greatest virtue is that he is a “Wilsonian” Democrat and cannot see anything Republican. Here’s hoping Charlie the best success in the Ministry. U HICK” was born at Wyomissing, Pa., February 28, 1903. After com- pleting an extensive preparation he decided to enroll as an A.B. student in the Fall of 1920. He is a member of the Chapel Choir. In religion he is a firm be- liever in the tenets of the Lutheran Chuch; in politics, a loud proclaimer and a staunch defender of Wilsonian principles. “Matt” intends to enter the ministry. “CHICK” “MATT” E ighty-nine Edward Joseph Mattson Hyde Park Avenue Scranton, Penna. “ ‘Mom’ says I’m a had actor, but I know I’m good.” F OLKS, have you ever noticed while at one of the football games, a good looking young man with a loud voice at the ‘doggie’ stand? Well, that good looking young man was none other than the gentleman at your left. “Here’s where you get your hot ‘dogs’, ice cream, and cigarettes” was Matt’s weekly song, and my! how he did take their dimes away. Ed would make a wonderful barker for old Barnurn. But you have surely seen our friend elsewhere. Do you remember the janitor in the Glee Club skit two years ago ? And the old crabbed uncle of last year? If you do, you’ll never forget Mattson. ‘Matt’ has a great deal to his credit during his three years at Muhlenberg, but the biggest and best thing to his credit, is the manner in which he lead the Freshman class the first semester. Every night one can see Ed traveling down 11th Street with his little bag of books. How he can study and make love at the same time we do not pretend to say, but the truth is, he does it. Ed you have a bright future before you, and whether you become a wearer of the cloth or if fate should destine you to a place before the footlights, your spirit and perseverence will carry you on to victory. P ERHAPS the most significant facts about Ed are that he is a member of Student Council and a prospective min- ister. Matt’s home address is Hyde Park Ave., Scranton, Pa. In other words he hails from the hard coal region. We do not mean to say that Ed is a minor; far from it, for he was born July 19, 1896. He is an A.B. student, a graduate of Allentown Prep, a Lutheran and a Republican. Ed is an As- sociate Editor of the CIARLA; and the Assistant Manager of the Glee Club; mem- ber of the Contemporary club; and our first class president. " ED” “MATT” Ninety ClABLA Quintin Winfield Messersmitli U VUIN” was born at Fleetwood, II Penna., July 10, 1902. He pre- pared at Fleetwood High School and to make his future profession, teach- ing, a success, is taking the Philosophical course. He belongs to the Delta Theta fraternity and the Berks County club. He is a Lutheran. He hopes to help the Re- publicans retain their mastery in this state. “QUIN” “BEN” Main Street Fleetwood, Penna. ‘Of recreation there is none So free as riding in a Ford Coupe.” Y ES this is our jovial fun-loving “Quin” always ready to eat and sleep, but never ready to get up when he is called at 7 A. M. for break- fast. He turns over and exclaims, “What an unearthly hour;” and then proceeds to make up for lost sleep. By geese, here comes “Quint” all dolled up to go home again, dreaming of ram- bling along the highways in a Tin Lizzie Coupe, with one of the fair sex by his side. Since his stay at college this young gentleman has not yet been cap- tured by the fair sex of Allentown, but his regular week-end trips to his home at Fleetwood, THE CITY OF THE FAMOUS BODY WORKS, has brought about a close friendship with one of the fair sex in Hamburg. We, however do not regret his success with Cupid, for nature runs its course, but it is evident that Volstead has not yet visited Cupid since “Quin” claims that he was always flushed with Cock-tails of WATER and slices of Bread. “Quin” is quite a shark in mathe- matics, but his study in Algebra as a bug-bear, has not yet enabled him to determine the Log-a-RYTHM of a Ford. Friends it seems ridiculous to mention the above facts, but we must know these to make his acquaintance; he has been loyal to his college, and his success in his future profession as a teacher is not doubted in the least. As a good friend and pal he can not be excelled. Ninety-one CIAPLA 1924 J. Albert Miller New Market, Virginia ‘Wise is the man who knows what profiteth. Not he who knoweth much.” I RECKON you all are now gazing upon the handsome countenance of our distinguished Southern friend, Doctor J. A. “Aw,” where do you all get that stuff from anyway, this is not doctor, but just “Jimmie.” Jimmie is one of those quiet, indus- trious sort of fellows and the most like- able pal a fellow ever could meet with. But, hold on, have you ever seen Jim down town, all spruced up and the dear young thing upon his arm ? Oh boy, that was J. A. himself, out for a bit of vacation, “faire la noce.” Jim has also become quite a cosmop- olite, both in female acquaintances and thru his recent trans-continental automo- bile-camping trip. If you want to pass a quiet hour or two (???), just get James started upon either of the above mentioned topics. “A word to the wise is sufficient.” However Jimmie’s a good sport and always ready to help out another fellow. His sole ambition is to follow in the “pater’s” footsteps and become a physi- cian. We feel sure that if his work here is a criterion, especially in the bio- logical field, he will be thoroly competent when he enters upon his chosen pro- fession. U TIM” was born at Hay Market, (no, j we mean New Market) Virginia, February 29, 1904. He prepared at Shenandoah Lutheran Institute and has taken up medicine as his life-work. He was one of the football scrubs in 1920 and 1921 and played on his class basketball team in his Junior year. Jim belongs to the Knutte Klub. He is a Democrat and a Lutheran. “JIMMIE” Ninety-two CIARLA 1924 Aaron Tilgliman Newliard Washington Ave., Northampton, Pa. N. 6th St Allentown, Pa “Labor is a relish to all brave men.’ W E have now before us the illus- trious and distinguished son of an undertaker. The picture of innocence and shyness, but to those that really know him a veritable nut. Aaron has many hobbies, the chief of which is “flivering.” Not being content with driving with the four wheels on the ground, he took the car out for a ride one afternoon and tried to drive with the four wheels sticking in the air. Some class, eh? When Aaron wants a thing he usually gets it, even if it be problems in physics, a report in religion, a key to a locker, or what not. As a detective he would make a good locksmith, and many fel- lows have been known to go to him for aid, for he usually holds the key to the situation( ? ). Burning the midnight oil can truly be put back of his name but whether it be for studious or social purposes will be left to the imagination. He is rather shy of the gentler sex, but if his Ford could talk, oh what a tale it could tell. For a profession he has shown his preference to pharmacy, and if he mixes his drugs the same way he mixed the compounds in chem. lab — Good Night. A ARON was born at Northampton, Penna., November 5, 1903. He pre- pared in the High School of his native town and entered Muhlenberg to fit himself for the study of medicine. Fratern- ally he is connected with the Phi Epsilon fraternity and belongs to the N. H. S. and Sandwich clubs. He devotes his spare time to tickling the ivories on the pool table. To make this book a success, he acted in the capacity of Assistant Advertising Man- ager. He is a Lutheran and relies on his good judgment in voting. “AARON” Ninety-three CIAPLA 1924 George William Nicholas 106 South Seventh Street “Nothing is hopeless; all things may be hoped for.’ Allentown, Penna. B EHOLD the modern sand dweller. This dark featured individual has all the characteristics of a modern “Sheik.” “Nick” is very popular with a certain handsome young lady from our sister institution. We don’t care to mention her name — but we will say for the benefit of those who don’t know her, that she lives in Florida and her father’s name is O’KELL. From all indications “Nick” will be picking “peaches” some day. He is one of the willing boys of the class, always ready to MISS a class to help some classmate in distress (?). Whenever we see a dark-red car creep- ing along the campus we know that Nick and the members of the Sunshine Club have decided on a hike or ride — maybe both. Nick gained great popularity during the pre-war days; he always had a bunch of boys working for his grandfather who never accepted pay; reason — his grandfather was the owner of the fam- ous Deifer Brewery. No wonder Nick had so many friends. We wish him all the luck our crude souls have to offer and hope he will always have fond memories of those who shared the same knocks and pleasures — including the writer of this biography. N ICHOLAS was born at Bethlehem, Penna., September 8, 1901. He is a graduate of two Prep Schools: Allen- town High and Allentown Preparatory. He is a member of Delta Theta fraternity and a B.S. student. ‘Nick’ came out for class football, class basketball, and class base ball. He held two class offices: class mon- itor during the first semester of our Fresh- man year and class treasurer during the first semester of our Junior year. He is a member of the A. P. S. and Sandwich clubs. In religion he is a Lutheran; in politics, a Democrat. He intends to take up some form of engineering. NICK” Ninety-four CIAPLA 1924 u f 0NK ” was born at Reading, Penna., November 15, 1898, and prepared for college at Reading High School. Immediately upon entering Muhlenberg, he distinguished himself in athletics, being on the football squad in his first and second year and Varsity center his third, basket- ball squad three years, and on the class track team and baseball team in his Fresh- man and Sophomore years. He is a writer of note, being on the WEEKLY Staff as an Associate Editor. “Neub” is also a mem- ber of the Student Council. Some day he intends to be a chemist and an athletic coach. He belongs to the Delta Theta frat- ernity and the Berks County club. Monk was overseas, is a staunch Democrat and a Lutheran. “NEUB” “MONK” 1220 Eckert Avenue Reading, Penna. “Talkativeness produces many disasters, but in silence there is safety. N EXT on our list for criticism is the good-looking boy who hails from the town of many pretzels. Why he picked on our quiet little school we don’t know. Nevertheless Carl D. Neub- ling is with us. We don’t know what the “D” stands for, but we think is’t Dumb or Dorothy. We suspect Neub came here to take a correspondence course of some kind, because he stays up late at night writing letters to some girl by the name of Ruth, and by the number of letters he receives from this fair maiden, we think that they are having a contest of some kind and before long they’ll both be using the same stationery. “Monk” is the quiet, peace-loving sort of individual who always causes so much trouble at Mealey’s and several other places. He is also well known about Catasauqua. We can say many good things about “Neub” but what’s the use (nobody will believe us) — we don’t blame them. He has a hobby of reciting poetry and on certain occasions we can’t stop him. Neub isn’t a bad sort of chap and is well liked by — the weaker sex. They surely must be weak. “Monk” is going to take up teaching and coaching after getting his “sheep-skin” from Muhlen- berg, and we wish him all kinds of luck. Good-bye Carl, may you always be happy, tho married. Ninety --five Rehrersburg, Penna. “Talking is one of the fine arts.” W HAT ho! Well if it isn’t Oxie himself, life size, and with the pipe in his mouth which often causes visitors to ask “Where is the big pipe going with the little boy?” This man of lofty aspirations is one of the select “400” of Rehrersburg. He is an industrious chap as is proved by the fact that he works in the Commons off and on. Let us add, however, mostly off. All joking aside, Oxie is a very popular fellow in his classes, in one especially, because if he is not feeling well, the rest of the class takes off in sympathy, and therefore there is no class. Do not be alarmed, he is the only one in the class. Is he a woman hater? By no means say we, for we know he has a strong predilection for “Strawberry Blondes.” We won’t say any more, except that we know that when he gets home, the old Ford rambles right along. Earl came with the ambition of getting his Ph.B., so that he will be better able to carry on his life work of teaching. As a student he is very studious and conscientious. He intends teaching Math and Science after he graduates. Oxie did his share for his Alma Mater by going out for cross country. E ARL S. OXENREIDER was born at Stouchsburg, Pa., October the Seventh, 1899. He is a graduate of two Prep, schools: Bethel High and K. S. N. S. Oxie is striving toward a Ph.B. degree, is a member of the Phi Epsilon fraternity and of the Dutch club. He is an ‘M’ man in cross-country. In religion he is a Luther- an, while in politics he is undecided. His intended profession is teaching. " OXIE” Ninety-six Third Street Robert Jacob Pliiler “Their silence is sufficient praise.’ Coplay, Penna. W HAT? This man a musician? Indeed, Bobby plays the violin with great efficiency. He is one of our noted Coplay representatives. Now since he is so afraid that we will pull off some hot stuff about him we will ease his mind by saying — What? Oh, yes, we’ll remember, “Mum’s the word.” Sawing violin strings is one of his favorite occupations and singing on the Coplay choir is another. However, Bobby is a good all-around fellow; ready to argue with anyone at any time, and though vanquished, he can still argue. When he first entered our institution he was rather quiet, but since then he has become more active, and is full of good spirits. Oh, how things do change! Putting all jokes aside, Robert is an active worker, and some day we hope you may be charmed by his music and oratory. R OBERT JACOB was one of Coplay’s finest babies in 1903, having made his advent on October the First. He grad- uated from Northampton High and then came to Muhlenberg to acquire more knowl- edge. He is taking the B.S. course and, as one might expect, is making good. He belongs to the Phi Epsilon fraternity, the Reformed Church and the Republican party. He expects to study medicine. We know he will be successful. Ninety-seven Morgan D. ReinlDold 925 Main Street Onset, Penna. “Thinking is vertical with being.” HENEVER you hear “YO-HO easy one handed” you can be sure Fleetfoot is around. Fleet- foot came to Muhlenberg with the am- bition of becoming an All-American in one thing or the other. He succeeded last year when he became a member of the All-American table in the Commons. Fleet is also famous for the embarras- sing questions he asks the different pro- fessors, but like Postum, “There’s a Reason,” for he himself was a teacher and he says he knows just what ques- tions will embarrass a professor. Laying all jokes aside, Fleetfoot is a very diligent student, a conscientious fellow and a deep thinker, and when given a problem to solve, one can rest assured that it will be solved correctly. Fleetfoot is also an athlete of no mean ability, as was shown last year when he did very much to bring the Loving Cup to our class. He is one of the few men to win his numerals in four sports. Fleet is also interested in women. He says he will challenge anybody to argue against him on the question, “Resolved that the women of to-day are gold-dig- gers.” He tells us that he lives somewhere in the Blue Mountains, where they make 200 proof moon-shine. ii ' ELEETFOOT” was born March 16, I -1 1900, at Onset, Penna. He is a graduate of two preparatory schools; Jonestown High and Pennsylvania State Normal. A Lutheran in religion, a Demo- crat in politics, “Reinie” intends to take up the profession of law. He is a member of the Phi Epsilon fraternity, of the Dutch club, and an aspirant to the A.B. degree. We must not forget to state “Fleetfoot’s” athletic activities. In his second year he was scrub on the football, the basketball and the track teams. In his third year he again scrubbed in football. He has taken an active part in all of the inter-class events, including the Pagan-minister game. “Reinie” is the manager of our class basket- ball team.

At present he is serv- ing as an understudy to Prof. Mealey, making an able assistant to the Prof, at his dancing emporium. Repass may be described as always smiling, distrust- ful of everything, and carries with him an unusually long pair of legs. In the summer time “Rip” may be seen driving a bus from Mercersburg to Hagerstown, Md., and after the last trip has been made, he spends the rest of the evening calling on friends in Hagers- town opposite the Y. M. C. A. After “Rip” graduates from Muhlen- berg he intends going to the Harvard Graduate School of Business. You might just know he’d aim high, but the thing that worries us is this, what will Muhlen- berg, Lehigh, and Lafayette do for a dance hall after Mealey dies, and Repass is in the business world? Why, he’ll just have to come back to make college life for the coming generation worth while. All the luck, happiness, and success for the tallest boy in the class, Repass. UT) IP” was born at Staunton, Va., on l the second day of January, 1903, and " ■ v secured his pre-collegiate training at Mercersburg Academy. Repass is a mem- ber of the local chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and is enrolled on the Ph.B. course. Athletically, we remember “Rip” for the part he took in baseball. He is a Lutheran and still clings to the best party, the Democratic. He intends to enter business after graduating from Muhlenberg. “KIP” Ninety-nine CIAPLA 1924 Percy Fidelity Rex 519 Tennis Avenue Ambler, Penna. ‘A sympathetic wife is man ' s chiefest treasure.’ D EAR readers, gentle and otherwise, let me introduce to you one of the shining lights and most popular men of the class of ’24, Percy F. Rex or otherwise known as “Harold Lloyd.” “Perc” knows that there are some very pretty girls in Allentown and vicinity and he falls for them at once, isn’t that right, Perc? But we know that by this time he has found his soul mate and is not wandering as in days of yore. Even tho he has had quite a number of these “love at first sight ideas,” he has settled down as any man should by the time of his Junior year in College. We have said enuf about the young man’s amours and we must now bring the evils of the card deck to bear upon him. Percy is a wonder at any game of cards, and anyone having played with him or against him can tell you that. He is a lover of music, much of his time being spent in playing the ukulele or the banjo. As far as his future is concerned, he can be nothing but a success with that charming personality of his. At present his one ambitin seems to be to live in the love of a certain little “Miss,” and to own “three acres and a mule.” P ERCY, as you may note above, is a resident of ' the bright and flourishing burg of Ambler. He is twenty-one years old, having been born June 18, 1902. After graduating from Norristown High, ‘Percival’ matriculated in the Arts course at Muhlenberg. The activities which claim his attention are many. He is the Assist- ant Business Manager of the WEEKLY, Treasurer of the Y. M. C. A., and was Business Manager of the Sophomore Calen- dar. He played football in the inter-class events of our Freshman and Sophomore years and in the Pagan-minister game. Percy is a member of the Contemporary club, belongs to the Lutheran Church and intends to enter the ministry. In politics he is independent. ‘PERCIVAL” “HAROLD LLOYD’ One Hundred CIAPLA 1924 79 Pine Street Carl Henry Roepe “Business before pleasure.” Brooklyn, N. Y. T HIS, dear friends, is a ladies’ man.

He captivates their hearts with the soft strains of the Ukulele. He is a master of that four-stringed instru- ment as well as of many others. Well, to tell the truth there isn’t anything that Carl can’t do from the shoeing of a horse to the writings of a book in philosophy. Oh, yes, we almost forgot something else. He is a master in painting and drawing and for this reason has taken an active part in making the 1924 CIARLA a success. The trouble with Carl is that he has so much to do that it is very difficult for him to find time to study. But he believes in the old maxim, “Pleasure be- fore Business.” Still Carl is never so busy but that he does not find time for his friends and we are happy to state that when it comes to friends, Carl has many. Thus in brief we have given a descrip- tion of one who is a friend to all. He is one whose only draw-back is his New York brogue. We wish Carl as much luck as is possible to wish upon him who has proved a friend to all. C ARL HENRY ROEPE was born at Brooklyn, N. Y., May 26, 1902. He is a graduate of Allentown Prep and is an A.B. student. He is a Lutheran, a Republican and a budding minister. Pep is a member of the A. P. S. and Contempor- ary clubs. He played class football every year and went out for track in his Fresh- man and Sophomore years. Most of the art work in the CIARLA bears his signa- ture. He is a member of the Glee and Mandolin clubs. ‘PEP’ 1 One Hundred One CIAJRLA 1924 Alvin Theodore Rogers Richmond Hill, New York “I have wasted time and lamp-oil.” I F there is any particular student who comes nearest to being an all around College man than A1 Rogers, we have yet to hear of him. Scanning Al’s record, the reader will find what he is interested in, besides his studies. Wherever Muhlenberg activi- ties are, A1 can usually be found either rooting or battling for the glory of Muhlenberg. Some rooters from Syra- cuse, Lehigh, and a gentleman who re- ceived a great deal of notoriety after the Lebanon Valley game two years ago, can bear us out when we say, “A1 is a very forceful arguer.” In the line of his experience comes fire fighting and he showed his aptness with the extinguisher in the F Hall con- flagration. It is said that A1 knows quite a bit about hazing parties and the Sophomore banquet. At any rate some fellows have tried to make him a more reserved student, but, as yet they have not been successful. A1 comes from the Empire State and at times feels it his duty to correct the errors of his egotistical fellow students from Reading and the like, who unfor- tunately have not had his opportunities. A1 is interested in business and after graduating expects to enter the Harvard Business School. A LVIN was born at New York City, September 19, 1901. Before coming to Muhlenberg, he had prepared at Richmond Hill High School and Cornell University. He is enrolled in the Ph.B. Course and has participated in class ath- letics, including football, volley ball, and track. In his Sophomore year he was the Assistant Editor of the Calendar. ‘Al’ be- longs to the Theta Chi fraternity at Cor- nell U. and to the Kistler and Empire State clubs. He is an Episcopalian, an Indepen- dent voter, and expects to take up business. “AL” One Hundred Two I CIAPLA 1924 5 Wells Street Charles L. Sclianz Jamaica, N. Y. “Relaxation and recreation are apparently necessaries of life.” ux HERE is no place like home,” was ] I the belief of Charlie when he came to Muhlenberg. This is his one fault or virtue, whichever you wish, to expound the gospel of Richmond Hill from day-break until any hour you wish, the later it gets, the bigger it gets. However light is gradually beginning to dawn upon him that there are other places than his ‘home village.’ The other day our basketball manager received a letter from a co-ed at Dela- ware University for player number 12. Zarty did not know to whom he should hand the letter when suddenly Charlie stepped forward and claimed it. We were wondering whether the case is really serious or not. Now be honest, Charlie, is it? Charlie’s chief sport at Muhlenberg in his three years has been basketball. He has played on the varsity as center for three years and greater things than ever are expected of him next year. Be- sides this, he concentrates his other abilities to the honor of his class, play- ing football, volley ball, and throwing the discus at track events. C HARLIE was born at New York City, April 24, 1901. He is a graduate of Richmond Hill High School and is enrolled in the Ph.B. course. In religion he is a Protestant Episcopalian; in politics, an Independent and in fraternity matters an Alpha Tau Omega. Charlie is a mem- ber of the Empire State Club and the Kistler Club. He is an “M” man in basket- ball and a varsity track man. He has played class volley ball, class track, and class football. “CHARLIE” One Hundred Three CIAPLA 1924 R. D. No. 4 Ernest A. N.

HAIL! the gang’s all here,” is what the band will undoubt- edly play when our young, blond protege, twenty years from now, steps from a private car with the air which only a most successful physician can obtain, recognizing here and there some of his fellow-citizens of Shoenersville. This prediction is possibly exaggerated but nevertheless a highly probable one and only worthy of one with such lofty aims and ambitions. “Ernie” was very young and precoci- ous when he was received into our halls from the hands of Catasauqua High School, where he was prepared. At first he made pilgrimages to that town but the latest has it that his activities are confined to this burg. “Here is the dope,” as he would say, “there are more girls to pick from in Allentown than in Catty.” Of course, as one would expect of him, he has not allowed parlor games to take up all his time here but has for two successive years tried to lower the two-mile record. Besides this he has lately been elected Football manager for the coming year. This position seems to be more or less contagious, “Ernie” having caught it from his roommate. Nevertheless after all is said, “Ernie” is showing what he can do which makes it highly important that his fondest ambitions will be realized. iiT RNIE” was born at Shoenersville, I -1 Penna., February 28, 1904, and pre- ■ ““ paratory to his entrance at Muhlen- berg, studied at Catasauqua High School. Ernie is, generally speaking, athletically inclined, being on teams of Varsity cross- country and varsity track in his Freshman year, and on the class football, basketball, baseball, and track teams in his Sophomore year. He scrubbed for the football man- agership in his Sophomore year and this office was awarded to him the following year. His deep resonant voice has con- tributed greatly to the success of the Glee Club. As his future profession, he intends to take up medicine. He is a Republican and belongs to the Reformed Church. He is a Delta Theta. •ERNIE” One Hundred Four CIAPLA 1924 Elmer Kulms Shaffer 640 North Seventh Street Allentown, Penna. ‘‘The facts speak for themselves.” E LMER, known on the campus as ‘Butch’, is an Allentown product, graduating from A. H. S. in 1920. ‘Butch’ is one of those fellows who has very little to say but when he does ‘spout,’ there’s something weighty in his elucidations. ‘Butch’ would be a 100% scout if he and Peiffer were not always arguing. Since such is the case most of the time, no one can get a word in edgewise. Ask Peiffer if this is not the case. ‘Butc-h’ is an Associate Editor of the 1924 CIARLA, and his worthy ef- forts did much to make a large part of the book a success. Altho ‘Butch’ is a real worker in every sense of the word, this does not prevent him from visiting Kutztown Normal School quite often. Rumor has it on the campus, that ‘Butch’ and the other two inseparables, New- hard and Peiffer, one fine day last spring, came to grief on that Kutztown High- way. Further advices say that while going to meet some of their friends at the school mentioned above, Butch drove his dad’s new Nash machine into one or more of the culverts along the side of the road. The machine, well, that was a mess — Butch hasn’t driven it since, and his Dad says he never will. Natur- ally ‘Butch’ got the royal razz when the bunch found out about the little acci- dent. Everybody is wondering whether the fellows were alone in the car or whether . At all events, ‘Butch’ still goes to visit Miss K — at K. S. N. S. H ERE again is a product of Allentown. Elmer was born July 1, 1904 and is a graduate of Allentown High. After completing his pro-collegiate work, Butch matriculated as a B.S. student at Muhlen- berg. He belongs to the Phi Epsilon frat- ernity, the A. H. S. club and the Sandwich club . Butch is one of the Associate Editors of the CIARLA, a Lutheran and a prospec- tive pharmacist. He is uncertain as to which of the political parties appeal to him the most. One Hundred Flv 1014 Darm Street Henry C. Shoemaker Allentown, Penna. ‘He is small, but, oh my! You should hear him chatter.” H ERE is the questioner of the class. This lad can ask more questions in five minutes than most fellows can answer in an hour. We were thinking that, if the government ever gets out another questionnaire, Shoemaker ought to be the one who should be selected for that position. As a lawyer he ought to be a cracker- jack. Imagine the impression he will make when he gets up to ask the jury some of the questions he asks around here. We don’t suggest however that the Profs, copy down any of these ques- tions that are asked in class, because every one would be flunking out then for sure. Henry will be studying as long as anyone else in the hall is studying and then when he is sure that no one else is studying he will study an hour or two to make absolutely sure that he has studied the most for that evening. Ac- cording to Logic thereon, Henry can’t figure out why some fellows should pull higher marks. Yes, Henry, Logic doesn’t prove everything and there are a whole lot of other things that ought to be learned that can’t be found in books. You have the grit. So we expect you to go and do big things. H ENRY was born at Allentown, Penna., January 31, 1900. Preparatory to entering Muhlenberg, Hennie studied at Bethlehem Prep, enrolling here in the Philosophical Course. He is one of our most reliable track men, and was honored by the class in his Sophomore year when he was chosen Monitor. He is a member of the B. P. S. club, and president of the Knutte Klub. Hennie is a staunch Repub- lican and belongs to the Lutheran Church. He intends to enter Law or Business. “HENNIE” “HANK” One Hundred Six CIAFLA 1924 Bertram Paul Sliover 130 South Twelfth Street Allentown, Penna. “He hath a mean and hungry look. " H ERE, dear reader, is a “gentleman” (?) of varied experiences and ambitions. In fact his ambitions vary so much, half the time he doesn’t know where he is. He was born in Wind Gap, and that is probably where he got some of his hot air. As a Freshman he was rather obscure until the baseball season opened when he put on some sort of nondescript uni- form and lived in it until Commence- ment. He played “bench-warmer” on that famous Freshman Nine. In his Sophomore year he went out for the Varsity and after all but nine men had quit, he made the team. This year, no doubt, he’ll be captain. But “Rat” shines in sports other than baseball. He is the champion “Parlor Athlete” of the class of ’24. When a Freshman he would spend many of his evening and week-ends in Wind Gap. We heard she was nice. When a Sopho- more he spent a great deal of his time in Lancaster. We heard she was nicer. At one time rumor had it that the two were married. In the beginning of his Junior year he had four girls to pick from. To date he has narrowed down his choice to two. One lives in Brooklyn and the other in Allentown. We don’t know which rates the higher, but he’s had twenty-eight consecutive dates with the local conundrum, which we believe is the College record. We heard she is nicest. T HE fates decreed that Bert should be born at Wind Gap, how strange! His birthday is December 4, and he is just old enough to vote. He is a Ph.B. student, a Phi Kappa Tau, and a member of the A. H. S. and Knutte clubs. In our Fresh- man year, Bert came out for class baseball, class basketball and class football. In our Sophomore year he landed a berth on the Baseball Varsity, and again played class basketball. This year he came out for class basketball a third time and also played in the Pagan-Ministers game. Bert is an Asst. Adv. Mgr. of the CIARLA, Student Employment Secretary, (Y. M. C. A. Cab- inet), and Secretary of the A. H. S. club. He is a Lutheran and a Republican and will probably study law. ‘BERT” “RAT’ One Hundred Seven CIAPLA 1924 Earle Zelmer Sittler R. F. D. No. 1 “Where the honey is. Lehighton, Penna. there is the bee.” E ARLE was one of the boys who stepped out to help Uncle Sam dis- play his fireworks in 1918. After he had “wound up his watch on the Rhine,’’ he came to Muhlenberg in 1920, to get, as he said, “inspiration.” How- ever his frequent trips to Lehighton have led us to believe that his source of in- spiration is not at Muhlenberg. “Sitt” is very reserved in his habits. His close attachment to his pipe is one of his strong points. His recreation is the movies; his business interests, the Madison restaurant; his favorite pas- time, arguing with his room mate on the value of the B. S. course; his favorite sport, shooting pool, and the “BULL”; his diversion is Math., and Physics; his aversion is the church; his greatest achievement, the letters he writes to Lehighton; his highest ambition, to be- come a scientist, establish a home, and perpetuate the Sittler fame in the Lehigh Valley. As a scholar we can truly say that Earle’s serious expression is an accurate index to his earnest purpose, for by his marked ability, and diligent application in his favorite field of Chemistry and Biology he has equipped himself so thoroly that we feel sure that he will realize his “highest” ambition, and be numbered among the greater men of Muhlenberg. E ARLE SITTLER opened his eyes to this world, in the famous borough of Le- highton on January 8, 1898. He at- tended K. S. N. S. and after his graduation taught school. When the World War broke out, he enlisted and saw active service in France. After his discharge he entered Muhlenberg, and is starring in the Science Department. He played with the class basketball team for two years. He is a member of the Phi Epsilon fraternity; A. E. F. and Kistler clubs. He is a Luth- eran; an Independent in politics, but no admirer of Volstead. He expects to take up the profession of teaching. “SCOOP” “SITT” One Hundred Eight 416 May Street Pottstown, Penna. “But still wise thinkers everywhere prevail.

Before Buck came to Allentown, his address was Georgia Military Academy; before that, Pottstown; but now it has changed to Cedar Crest altho you might still be able to reach him at Muhlenberg. His activities are many: scrub football (1); Varsity foot- ball (2 and 3); class track (1); and class treasurer (1). Buck is a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, of the Knutte Klub, a Presbyterian in religion, and a non- partisan in politics. He intends to enter business. B UCK is going to be the next presi- dent of Cedar Crest College. He has been getting a great deal of practical experience in this line during his three years at Muhlenberg. He thinks that West Virginia is just about the best state in the Union, not that he has lived there or anything like that, but because in West Virginia is her home. Besides being quite a Sheik, ‘Buck’ is a good athlete, for in the line he is a regular stone wall. Besides attending to his regular duties on the football field, he finds time enough to devote to the Supreme Court of the Student Body, the Student Council. He is a very fluent talker, when it comes to saying some- thing nonsensical and to making criti- cisms. Owing to his great interest in the football realm, he has been appoint- ed, unanimously, as manager of the field during the spring and summer months. “BUCK One Hundred Nine CIARLA 1924 Robert Gurj Stauffer 139 Main Street Emaus, Penna. “Unseemly ’tis for me to bandy words with women.” B OBBY hails from Emaus and there- fore is one of the those quiet, sens- ible fellows which Emaus alone can produce. He has very little to say and is not easily disturbed unless he sees a red-haired girl. As far as is known Bobby, is beyond this, entirely uncon- cerned about women, and when ap- proached on this subject he says, “That is a perfect blank with me.” When not busy at the typewriter he may be found working at his trade, namely, that of butcher. Driving a Ford truck is his chief hobby and in this way he spends most of his vacations. Bobby intends to teach a few years and then continue his studies at Harvard in the Law school. Best wishes to you, Bobby, and much success in whatever field you may enter. R OBERT was born December 13, 1900, in District Township, Berks County. He attended public school at Emaus and graduated from the High School in 1919.

It was a bright day for Snyders when he came, because they expect him to ac- comp ' ish wonders in his community. ‘Stag’ is proud of his Dutch and is not vain enough to conceal it. Be that as it may, our friend is doing noble work. He is never downhearted himself and never allows anyone else to be. No matter how difficult Dr. Brown’s oratory may be, Stag can always bring a smile to his face. ‘Stag’ has been an active member of his class and has taken part in all class activities. He was chairman of the com- mittee that arranged the menu for our sumptuous feast at Coopersburg. He is one of our reliable track men and last year he acquitted himself nobly as lead- off man on the relay team. We understand that a certain fair damsel from his vicinity claims his affections and is, we suppose, responsible for his frequent week-end excursions. ‘Stag’ expects to enter the ministry and judging from present activities he should have a bright career. S TAG was born at Snyders, Pa., Janu- ary 23, 1898. He prepared at West Chester and Indiana State Normal Schools, being a graduate of the latter. Stag has distinguished himself in athletics, being on the class basketball and track teams and on the Varsity track team. In class activities, he was class basketball man- ager, class track manager, class secretary, and Associate Editor of the CIARLA. He is, at present, president of the Junior Class and is Varsity Basketball Manager. Frat- ernally he is a member of the Delta Theta fraternity and belongs to the “Dutch” club. He votes the Democratic ticket, and, al- though he takes the Philosophical Course, he intends to enter the Lutheran ministry. “STAG” One Hundred Eleven CIA PLA 1924 Eugene Leslie Stowell 30 Avenue A Rochester, N.

He has distinguished himself in singing, being on the Glee Club for three years and also secretary of the Club. “Pop” is a member of that august body called the Student Council, of which he is also the secretary — according’y a terror to the Freshmen. He is an Associate Editor of the CIARLA and was on the WEEKLY Staff in his second year. “Gene” is also an ardent booster of the Campus Frat, besides belonging to the A. P. S. and Contemporary clubs. He is a Lutheran and votes the Republican ticket. 4 T OP” can be called the “Father of J the Class.” To place “Gene” in this category does not signify that he has old ideas. Far be he from such. Eugene has young ideas and, sometimes young girls. He enjoys the dance and to see “The Old Man” on the floor would easily prove that he has many years to travel before he will be banished to the Old Folk’s Home. Eugene is a wonderful chap and his readiness to assist anyone in need, will always be a monument to his name. He enjoys a good joke and he also enjoys to study. Before entering Muhlenberg, “Pop” was outside of the school-room for twelve years. To him much credit should be given for his great determin- ation to start in where the majority stop. Eugene is a busy man. If he isn’t writ- ing letters to A. he is singing in the choir. Besides all this, he is on the Glee Club and is somewhat of a clever football player.(?) “Pop”, never worry that you will be forgotten when you leave Muhlenberg. With white socks and army shirt, your spirit will pass up and down the campus for many years after you have confirmed your first class.

Day by day in every way she is coming nearer and nearer (from Bernville to Sinking Springs). Straussie is one of the many song birds in East Berks Hall. At any time of day or night you can hear him sing- ing, in fact we think he is practising for the Bernville “stage.” Harold is one of “Teedy’s” noble assist- ants, and we hear he makes a very able assistant to the fair sex in the Exten- sion Department. He is also circulation manager of the Muhlenberg WEEKLY. We are sure he was elected on his own merit and understand he is very inti- mately acquainted with the U. S. mail system. Getting down to facts Straussie is a really good student. Having partially mastered the A. B. course, we find him delving in the “unknown” of the B. S. course. We have told all about Harold except the most important fact; that he is the baby of our class. UXTACOB” was born at Bernville, July Y 26, 1904 and was graduated from Bernville High School. Altho the baby of our class, his actions are by no means babyish. Harold is a non-fraternity man and is enrolled in the A.B. course altho he is now majoring in scientific sub- jects. He participated in class football, volley ball and basketball. ‘Straussie’ is Assistant Circulation Manager of the WEEKLY, Scrub Manager of Basketball and Assistant Librarian.

But whether he did or not, his bed is going out of the window. Then the fight is on and this lasts for about a week or so, until the gang gets together and signs a peace treaty. It is really re- markable what a capacity Ted’s mind has for thinking up tricks. West Berks would be a dead place if it were not for Ted. This fellow, to our mind, is a good example of what college life can do for a fellow. When Ted first came here he had that unmistakable rural manner about him, and now if you were to see him come down the street in that light coat and hat of his you wouldn’t know that he is the same fellow that we knew only a few years ago. Yes, he is real collegiate now and able to get along with the best of them. Ted is a prominent member of the Contemporary Club. Well, here’s wish- ing you good luck and success, Old Top.

During his first two years at Muhlen- berg, he was a member of the Track team, and one of the scrubs who helped to produce our stellar football team of ’21. He also played class football, is the class historian, an Associate Editor of the WEEKLY, a student representa- tive to the A. A., and to crown it all, Editor-in-Chief of this CIARLA. Ray is one of those quiet chaps about the campus, but we advise you to re- member, “That still waters run deep.” “You cannot always sometimes tell.” He has formed an ‘entangling alliance’ somewhere along the Emaus trolley line which is largely responsible for his early returns to the Dorms at night. In order not to disturb the peaceful slum- bers of his fellow colleagues in West Berks, he has equipped himself with a pair of rubber heeled shoes. Ray further convinces us of the truth of the statement, as does our president, “Best things come in small packages.” He makes a fine “Jeff” alongside of any average ( ? ) sized “Mutt.” We know that Ray will succeed in whatever he undertakes and we extend him the best wishes of the class of ’24. R AY is twenty-three years of age, hav- ing been born at Allentown on March 27, 1900. He is a graduate of Allen- town Prep, a student in the Philosophical course, and a member of the Phi Epsilon fraternity. Some of his activities are Vars- ity track (1, 2); class football (1, 3); scrub football (2); cross country (1); class his- torian; Junior representative to the A. A.; Assoc. Editor of the WEEKLY; and Editor- in-Chief of the CIARLA. Ray belongs to the A. P. S. and Press clubs.

Arthur says that Einstein may be right but he doubts it, and that he himself will settle the argu- ment concerning relativity. Arthur is usually flooded with thots, and he also contends that a girl’s fidelity is directly proportional to the weekly allowances from home, therefore Arthur refrains from that phase of activity, known as parlor athletics, but neverthe- less he is a “good skate.” But we haven’t given up hope, for Arthur is trying to develop a graceful manner of embracing his future “sidekick” by hab- itually practicing on the fellows. Arthur is a good student, very con- sistent, and we are sure that he will make good in imparting to his pupils the value of x, y and z. He also excells in track. He won his letter in his Fresh- man year, and his ambition is to break the half-mile record before he leaves col- lege. But in closing let us say that Arthur told us he visited a certain girl’s house several times to see her Christmas tree, during Christmas vacation. No wonder if the tree pines and balsams while Arthur’s at school. We hope Arthur will some day have a tree of his own, and also some little balsams.” L EHIGHTON prizes Arthur as one of her illustrious sons. Here he was born on July the Twelfth, 1901 and here he was graduated from the local High School. Arthur is deeply interested in Track and Cross-country. In our Freshman year he was out for the class track team, and was a member of the Varsity Track Squad and Varsity Cross-country Squad. In our Sophomore year, Arthur again proved his mettle in Varsity Track. He is an “M” man in both of these sports.

Editor of football programs in our Fresh- man year, and second president of our class. He is a Lutheran and a Republican. Most significant of all are his athletic activities. He played varsity football and varsity bas- ketball in our Freshman and Sophomore years; and is baseball and tennis manager in our Junior year.

Such indeed is Howard. In addition to the above mentioned activ- ities, we almost forgot to say that Howard is Art Editor of this CIARLA, being an artist of no mean ability, as his own work in this book will testify. Howard is tall and, in the phraseology of a certain person, “A mighty good lookin’ fella,” having light hair and blue eyes. He has a certain artistic atmos- phere about him, that not only attracts the opposite sex, but wins their hearts as well, before he ever meets them.

He hails from 218 N. West St., Allentown. After his graduation from Allentown High and Bethlehem Prep he decided to come to Muhlenberg where he at once made good on the varsity football, basketball, and baseball teams. He filled the chair of vice- president of the class in our Sophomore year, is Evangelical in religion, Democrat in politics, and a future business man in vocation. He is a Delta Theta. J ACK can be seen walking around the campus and westward almost any afternoon, with his hiking shoes headed toward the college on the other hill. We often wondered, why he always went up along Cedar Creek on his daily hikes. Perhaps he likes to play with the little trout in the stream.

Jack is a good student when he is not decorating the upper bunk of his double- decker, and can often be seen in the above mentioned position reading Robert W. Service. He very often is caught in a trance, looking off into space, and invariably staring at a picture that hangs above his bunk.

W. A. K.; I. 0. 0. F.; B. P. O. E.; W. O. W. Perhaps this is a code that he learned while he was a member of the B. S. of A. Jack aspires to become a second Walter Camp, so we take this opportunity to wish him all the success in the world. “JACK” One Hundred Eighteen I CIAPLA 1924 Harold Philip Whitenight 825 North Sixth Street Allentown, Penna. “Do well the duty that lies before you.” T HIS handsome individual is none other than Rudolph Valentino Whitenight. “Whitie” joined the navy when in his teens, and what ports along the big ponds that he didn’t visit aren’t worth being washed by the salty waters of the globe. The “Duke”, as he was called in the navy, is the type of sailor boy we read about — a wife in every port and not only ports but cities too. Occasionally when this sailor boy talks of the weaker sex he lays a great deal of stress on a little lady who hails from the same city that the Statue of Liberty does. “Whitie” said that he would never get married — again, so we wish him all kinds of luck when he starts digging for his lady fair. We never see “Whitie” in the day time be- cause he is of the “night-hawk” type and the sun-shine hurts his eyes. He never complains about the moonshine. “Whitie” is a math shark and is great on figures (?). We expect to find him teaching math, in some girls’ school or being a coach. What we want to know is whether the coach he means has four wheels or not. All in all the Duke is a good sport and is well liked — even by the professors. We know he’ll make his mark in this world even if the Mark isn’t worth anything today. We wish you all kinds of luck as captain-elect of the football team the coming season, “Whitie,” go get ’em. i THITIE” was born at Mountain YY Top, Pa., August 29, 1897. He is ” ” a graduate of Allentown High; a B.S. student; and a member of Delta Theta fraternity. Whitenight is captain- elect of our football squad, having played on the Varsity for three years. He is a Methodist and an independent in politics. His future profession is that of coaching. “DUKE” “WHITIE” One Hundred Nineteen 408 Chestnut Street Slatington, Penna. “Do not talk a little on many subjects, but much on a few.” UTIRITZ” was born twenty-one years ago, P or to be exact, on January 7, 1902. He prepared for college work in the High School of his native town, Slatington, Pa. He is enrolled at Muhlenberg as a regular student in the Ph.B. course. Our class put so much confidence in “Fritz” that it chose him as Business Manager of the CIARLA. Religiously he is a Lutheran; politically a Republican. He tells us he is undecided as to his future profession, but somehow we suspect he will some day apply for admission to the bar. T HE hamlet, or shall we say flourish- ing town, of Slatington ( ? ) sent one of her noble and illustrious sons to Muhlenberg just three short years ago to become one of the members of the class of 1924. Of course we mean Fred Williams. Fred is a man of few but meaningful words, and great actions for the Class. He is the man to whom was entrusted the august direction of the silver and gold department of this book. We know he did well, for many were the wails of anguish escaping from the lips of salesmen whom he had bar- gained with. He has that keen business eye, and since in a sense a lawyer needs such business traits, we feel confident that he will make a good and honest lawyer, if such a thing is possible. At any rate, Fred intends to plead before the bar — of the Court, and if he con- tinues to wear the flashy red tie he con- tinually wears on the campus, we feel so much the more confident that he will captivate the judge and jury, also one of those Slatington young damsels — for altho none of us are supposed to know anything about it (Fred is very reticent concerning his own affairs) still quite loud rumors proclaim to our ears that Fred had a very potent case on a certain Miss — of the slate town. “FRITZ ' One Hundred Twenty CIARLA 1924 “BRIGHTIE” Walter H. Albright Blooming Glen, Penna. “With care and toil, all things may conquered be.” H ERE is a man who is always on the job. Albright yes all bright? You must pardon the pun, but no record could be complete without that time honored p n ay on his name. He clings obstinately to the obsolete idea that college is a place to study. Albright entered the regular college B.S. course in our Junior year. Previous to this, he had taken Extension courses for three years. He is a graduate of Perkiomen Seminary and was born at Dublin, Pa., (not Dublin, Ireland), February 27, 1891. “Brightie” taught school for ten years and was supervising principal of the Hilltown High School for the past four years. Religiously he is a Mennonite, and politically a Democrat. Of course teaching is his intended vocation. John P. Creveling Route No. 5 Allentown, Penna. “Both the just and the unjust have their existence not in nature but in law.” Creveling is a hard and faithful work- er, for in addition to his college work, he runs a large farm. This is not saying where he runs it. The work in college which especially appeals to Creveling is religion and physical education. Most of the time, which he does not use in eating and sleeping, he spends fishing. We are told that he is an expert fisher- man but then, he was a pisciculturist for several years, and any one can catch fish from a hatchery. This gentleman was born in Salisbury Town- ship, Lehigh County, September 4, 1892. So you see, John is a great deal older than the rest of us in point of age, but not in point of spirit. He enrolled as a student in the Philosophical course after completing preliminary work in sajaijpB ay ‘daaj UMO uaiiy P UT2 M S !H sn Lug to the tenets of the Reformed faith, is an ardent Republican and expects to take up the legal profession. “JOHN” One Hundred Twenty-one “LUKE " J. Roland Heller, ’23 120 Lancaster Avenue Shillington, Penna. “No one provokes me with impunity.” L UKE was born at Plowville, Pa., November 11, 1896. In preparing to enter Muhlenberg, Luke studied at Keystone State Normal School and taught school for a few years. He is noted for his oratory, and was a con- testant in the preliminaries to the Inter- collegiate Oratorical Contest. Intending to enter the ministry, he has taken the A.B. course. He has associated himself with the Phi Epsilon fraternity, in addi- tion to belonging to the K. S. N. S. club and the Berks County club. Luke is an ardent booster of “parlor athletics” and devotes a great deal of time to perfecting that art. As a voter he is a Democrat and as a religious man he follows Martin Luther. 1610 Chew Street Allentown, Penna. “No mortal man, moreover, is wise at all moments J ROLAND, alias “Gus”, alias “Rol- lie,” first saw the light of day on November 30, 1902. For the sake of information, ladies, he lives at 1610 Chew St., Allentown, Pa. He came to Muhlenberg from Allentown High School where none but good boys come from, started as a B.S. with the class of 1924. “Rollie” is at present our efficient cheer leader. In religion he follows Martin Luther, in politics no one, and in his future life undoubtedly in his wife’s foot- steps. He is a Phi Kappa Tau.

Maybe he does and maybe he doesn’t, but at any rate we pity the women. Frank is a woman hater??? He sometimes finds himself in need of hospital attention but inadverdently he mistakes the Nurses’ College for the Hospital. Faust, who was born at Zionville, Pa. November 8, 1901, had prepared at Keystone State Normal before entering Muhlenberg. He has chosen Science as his life work, intending to take up the teaching profession. He is a member of the K. S.

Frank is a non- partisan when it comes to voting, and belongs to the Reformed Church when it comes to church-going. ‘FRANK 1 One Hundred Twenty-three Dropped Idij the Weujside Ralph H.

One Hundred Twenty -four History - " -Sophomore T HE divisions of college life can easily be compared to the four seasons. The freshman enters college in the springtime, let us say. Everything is new to him, everythi ng different, everything changed and he begins as it were, a new era. The Sophomore finds life at the summertime, the time of achievement, happiness, enjoyment. He is beginning to develop in his new status and comes to an appreciation of his advanced collegiate rating. The autumn finds the harvests being gathered and the affairs of the summer brought to a close. Vacations are ended and one again returns to the “grind.” The Junior year — is it not the autumn? Does the third year man not begin to realize and comprehend some of the important things of life and begin to apply himself to their coloring? Finally, the winter with all its remorse, bitterness and likewise bless- ings brings one to the preparations for the coming year and also brings on a deep consideration of the successes and failures of the past. The senior looking back on his college career — what changes does he wish for? O why did I not do this, why was not that done? Then in more sedate moments he lays his plans for his life after graduation. But of all the phases we at this time are concerned merely with the summertime. The sophomore year alone claims our attention. Our re- flections are all upon the summertime of college life, the time of accom- plishment, pleasure and arrogance. College at all times provides an endless chain of interesting occurences and one could recount for hours, tales of midnight soirees, afternoon pleasantries and mornings or doleful slumber, splitting headaches, and dyspeptic stomachs, also hours of untold bliss in class room, lecture room and parlors. However it is not necessary for us to tell of the minor affairs which one naturally expects and anticipates. Suffice it to mention merely some of the notable “coups d ' etat” in which we participated during the past year. The night of the Sophomore Banquet with plans made for a marvelous getaway from the Frosh and everything primed for a successful night One Hundred Twenty-seven of mirth, merriment and melody, the jail at the Fair Grounds was utilized as a place of detention for the Frosh and all those devotees of the be- nighted green-buttoned pate-warmer were placed therein for about an hour while we feasted at the Elks. The unusual Stunt Day observances this year can also bear mention at this time. In addition to the delightful shadow-boxing, penny-rolling, daisy picking and the other usual fetes one must add the hair-cutting of a certain side-whiskered Frosh, the organized gauntlet, thru which another Frosh ran on a special occasion and several flurries of Ku Klux Klacking heard over the campus. The unusually large number of Sophomores on the various varsity teams rather overshadowed extensive class athletic activities, but we con- sole ourselves in placing the glory of the school before petty class enthus- iasm. So passing thru the summertime of college gloriously we look forward to success in the other “season” and fervently ask the gods that be, for favorable omens.

One Hundred Thirty-nine THE SOPHOMORE CLASS 1924 Freshman History P FROSH! With these words we were greeted in chapel on our first day as students of Muhlenberg. And we were soon bedecked with tags and ties of a very conspicuous color and with freshman caps. But although we were weighted down with these encum- brances, we started our way upward as we had been directed. Our first step was an overwhelming victory over the Sophs in the annual Classic of the Pole. By winning this scrap we clearly demon- strated that our superiority lay not in number but in the Spirit of 1926. In the following encounter, The Banner Melee, our progress was temporarily halted, chiefly by the deadly use of tear gas by the Teutonic members of the Sophomore class. The next opportunity we had of proving our mettle was the Frosh- Soph football game. Here we again regained our stride. The Spirit of ’26 again came forward as is shown by our 12-6 victory. Then came the Freshman banquet, which proved to be a very enjoyable affair. But, on our return to college, we discovered that things were not as they had been. The early part of the night of the Sophomore banquet found the Freshmen in strange environments ; however, as the night pro- gressed, the tables were turned and the latter part of the night found the Sophomores in a worse predicament. It was even rumored that, after their revelries, many of them spent the early morning hours at Cedar Crest. The following Monday was Stunt Day. The festivities began in the chapel with speeches, songs, and shadow boxing. The scene then shifted to the football field where we were made to run the gauntlet and engage in a shoe-rush. But here the fun(?) was cut short by a very timely rain. The Class of 1926 has been well represented in the activities of the college. We contributed nine men to the varsity football squad and four to basket-ball. Our prospects in track are favorable and we have several men who will doubtless make the team. We are represented on the Glee Club by nine men, including the piano soloist and one of the leading actors in the skit. One Hundred Forty-three 1924 Feeling that there was a great need for debating at school, we organized a freshman debating team, which will represent Muhlenberg against freshman teams from other colleges. Scholastically our class ranks with any freshman class in the history of the college. Since scholarship is the main factor at Muhlenberg we have made that our fundamental purpose. All of these are merely indications of the onward and upward march of our class which has continued steadily in the past and which we hope will continue during our remaining years at college, so that the Class of ’26 will be a source of honor and glory to its Alma Mater.

One Hundred Sixty- five Extension Division The work of the Extension division is another indication of the great service rendered by Muhlenberg. It has grown from a very small begin- ning to a position in which it is one of the greatest in the field of educational work to teachers. The aim of the Extension Division is to advance education by helping those engaged in it. The best proof of the success of this purpose is seen in its rapidly growing enrollment. The sessions were first begun in 1912 with an enrollment of thirty-two. In 1917, the number of students had become one hundred and fourteen, and by 1921, the total enrollment had reached five hundred and twenty-five. For the session of 1922-23, eight hundred twenty nine people were enrolled, an increase of more than fifty per cent from the preceding term. In addition to the winter sessions, work was instituted in summer sessions in the summer of 1915 with an initial enrollment of thirty-six. This number has increased rapidly with each session until the summer of 1922 showed an enrollment of three hundred eighty-one. One Hundred Sixty-six In addition to the work at the college Saturdays, the Extension division operates a number of extra-mural centers during the week. These outside centers are the Central Junior High School, Allentown, and schools at Hellertown, Hazleton, Coaldale, Lansford, and Pottsville. Four of the courses offered in the Extension School, are given under the direction of the extra-mural division of New York University and receive graduate credit at that institution. For the Summer session of 1923, a great many special courses have been arranged and a number of additions have been made to the college faculty to take care of the new courses. These additions include Carrie M. Graham, who will offer courses in Supervised Study; C. F. Seidel of the Junior High School; Mildred Kemmerer, Supervisor of Music; Charlotte S. Schmerker, Supervisor of Drawing; Harry F. Greby, of the Hazleton Junior High School, and Luther J. Kuhns, Supervisor of Penmanship in Norristown. The work of the Extension Division is under the direction of Dr. I. M. Wright, Professor of Education, and we are sure that under his administration, the Extension Courses will continue their rapid expansion. One Hundred Sixty-seven FOOTBALL BOOSTERS TRACK CIAPLA 1924 Our Track Season Resume of 19 22 Track and Field Season N YOUR MARK! Get set! Bang! They are off with a big season ahead of them. Muhlenberg has always been in the lime light as far as track is concerned. Last year Muhlenberg won every one of its track meets, and in addition had the honor of having ‘Corp’ Reinartz, its track star score fifth in the Pentathlon at Penn, and this year it had the honor of having ‘Corp’ score second. ‘Corp’ Reinartz was selected to take charge of the track squad as student coach, in addition to being Captain, and contender for the Pen- tathlon Championship. ‘Corp’s’ winning personality and stellar athletic ability won for himself a true regard and admiration from all the students who cooperated with him in making the season one of the most successful track seasons that the Cardinal and Grey team ever had. Although training was started about March, the team was badly handicapped by not having an indoor track. However the team showed, that in spite of its handicaps it was equal to its old rival Lehigh, which was the first dual meet of the season.

At first it seemed as if Lehigh would win, but Muhlenberg came thru with a rush and tied the score. The final score showed each team with 56 points to its credit. ‘Corp’ Reinartz was the star of the meet. He won seven firsts and one second, scoring 38 of the 56 points. It was his mind and muscle that saved the Cardinal and Grey from a defeat. He set a new record in the Javelin, breaking his own l ' ecord by 6 feet 7 inches. Lehigh excelled on the track, but on the field they were lost. A high wind swept over the field the entire afternoon and was largely responsible for the rather slow time in some of the events. With only three more events remaining, the score stood 35-53 in favor of Lehigh, and hope did not run very high. However, Muhlenberg displayed the same spirit that won renown for her on the gridiron and it was not until the last event that the Cardinal and Grey tied the score when Reinartz took first and Steigerwalt second in the broad jump. 100-yard dash SUMMARY OF EVENTS WRIGHT 10 3-5 sec. 220-yard dash WHITE 23 2-5 sec. 440-yard dash BURGESS 54 3-5 sec. 880-yard dash COOK 2 min., 9 1-5 sec. 1-mile run BRAY 4 min., 53 sec. 2-mile run SEEGMUND 10 min., 41 sec. 120 high hurdles REINARTZ 17 3-5 sec. 220 low hurdles REINARTZ 27 1-5 sec.

Last year ‘Corp’ took fifth place which was remarkably good, but this year we can not say how proud Muhlenberg was when he placed second. Faced by former champions in each event Reinartz placed third in the javelin, second in the broad jump, second in the 200 meter, third in the discus, and fifth in the 1500 meter run. Competing against him were such men as Le Gendre of Georgetown; West of W. J.; and Emery of Princeton. Le Gendre of Georgetown won the first place, having made two new records in the Pentathlon, but Reinartz made a more remarkable record when he put Muhlenberg into second place the second year she sent a man to represent her in the famous event. Muhlenberg has had fine track material during her history but never before has a single Cardinal and Grey athlete achieved as much as has ‘Corp’ Reinartz. Giving his time as student coach of track and working under handicaps he has made a mark that coming years will not erase. One Hundred Seventy-five MANAGER ROGERS, O’CONNOR, ST EIGER WALT, WILSON, YEHL Penn Relays First Runner CLARENCE A. STEIGERWALT Second Runner PAUL D. O’CONNOR Third Runner TRACE W. WILSON Fourth Runner RICHARD K. YEHL Muhlenberg again placed fifth in the Annual Penn Relay held at Franklin Field, The Cardinal and Grey runners made a good showing against some of the largest and strongest colleges and universities in the country. Each of the four boys ran a very good r ace, but their company was too fast for them. There were nine teams entered in their event, among them being University of Maryland, Bucknell, Wash- ington and Jefferson, Gettysburg, etc. Starting eighth from the pole Steigerwalt cut into third place which he held until the home stretch was reached. There his legs gave out and a man passed him, but he finished fourth and at the finish O’Connor took the stick and tried to recover some of the lost ground. Wilson followed O’Connor and ran a beautiful race. Yehl ran as anchor man and ran a pretty race, having passed one man on the home stretch he finished in fifth place. The time of the race was 3:29 2-5. One Hundred Seventy-six DUAL MEET MUHLENBERG COLLEGE vs. RUTGERS MAY 6, 1922 Muhlenberg’s track team suffered its first defeat at the hands of the strong Rutgers aggregation at New Brunswick. Rutgers garnered 88 V 2 points to Muhlenberg’s 23Vfc. Reinartz took first place in the broad jump and second honors in the pole vault, shot put, discus throw, and javelin, and was tied for second place in the high jump with Innet of Rutgers. Sowers won first place in the javelin. Rutgers has one of the strongest track teams she has ever produced and Muhlenberg need feel no shame of their defeat. Middle Atlantics MAY 13, 1922 Although Muhlenberg did not win the Middle Atlantic States Col- legiate Association Championship at Lancaster, ‘Corp’ Reinartz was the star performer of the meet. ‘Corp’ broke the Middle States javelin record with a heave of 176 feet 8 inches. After smashing the javelin record, he won second in the shot put, and first in the broad jump. Sowers and Riggs the other two Muhlenberg representatives did not place. The team placed fifth with 13 points to their credit. One Hundred Seventy-seven DUAL MEET MUHLENBERG COLLEGE vs. BROOKLYN POLY. The Cardinal and Grey team again defeated the Brooklyn Poly, team by a score of 66 to 51. It was more than a victory for the track team. It was a crowning personal triumph for the phenomenal Reinartz. The fleet coach of the team participated in eight of the thirteen events on the program and took seven firsts and one tie for first honors in the high jump, scoring 39 of the team’s 66 points. The half mile was one of the most exciting races of the afternoon. Yehl, the Cardinal and Grey star half-miler, ran a beautiful race. It was a neck to neck race from start to finish. It was evident that Yehl was caught in a ‘pocket’, for the greater part of the race he was unable to gain open track. The two mile also proved to be very closely contested, Riggs the Cardinal and Grey two miler losing by only a few feet. Steigerwalt, the Cardinal and Grey quarter miler, received serious injuries in the broad jump which prevented him from participating in the meet and kept him out of track for the rest of the season. C. P. C. A. MAY 27, 1922 Island Park, Harrisburg The Central Pennsylvania Collegiate meet found Muhlenberg in second place. Reinartz again displayed his achievements by taking five firsts, one second, and two thirds, and breaking three of the former records in the low hurdles, high hurdles, and broad jump. He scored 31 of Muhlen- berg’s 35 Va points. Yehl, Riggs, Sowers and Kintzing were the other scorers for Muhlen- berg.

One Hundred Seventy -eight DUAL MEET MUHLENBERG COLLEGE vs. GETTYSBURG Muhlenberg Field — June 10, 1922 The fact that ‘Corp’ Reinartz was in the hospital with appendicitis and Steigerwalt was still laid up from a sprained ankle which he received in the Brooklyn Poly. Meet, did not dampen the ardor of the Muhlenberg men but rather caused them to redouble their efforts to win. Although the score stood 75 1 2 to 36 V 2 a t the end of the meet, there was close competition in all the events between the Cardinal and Grey and Gettys- burg. Kintzing broke the record for the high jump at 5 ft., 8 V 2 in. Yehl won a fine race in the half mile, and Sowers scored 10 points, taking first in both the shot put and javelin throw. Begel made a heroic attempt to win the high hurdles, but he was just a fraction of a second slower than Berger of Gettysburg. Hodgins, Webb, and Riggs also placed in their events. One Hundred Seventy-nine Inter-Class Track Meet April 10, 1922 The large crowd of students and sport lovers of the city who wit- nessed the inter-class track meet on April 10th, were certainly shown some fine contests. This was because of the fact that many of the varsity track men were debarred by the coach. The Freshmen and Sophomores staged most of the spectacular features. At the end of each event the result was anxiously awaited by everyone because of the close scores of the Freshmen and Sophomore teams. As this was the last of the inter-class sports each of the classes was eager to win the highest number of points in the meet in order to win the silver loving cup which was to be awarded to the class winning the highest number of points in the inter-class contests. The Sophomore class succeeded in piling up enough points to win the meet. The Freshmen placed second, the Juniors third, while the seniors finished last.

One Hundred Eighty fe ur Tennis For the past several years Muhlenberg has played Varsity Tennis. The team has shown good results, in spite of the fact that the Cardinal and Grey net men did not win more than one of their matches. The organization of new sports takes time, and tennis is no exception. One of the reasons for the lack of more victories had been the class of teams that we have been meeting, because most of the colleges that we played have been playing tennis for a number of years. However, the net game is becoming more popular on the campus. This was shown last spring when the call for candidates was issued. The inter-class matches always create an interest and bring out the best players. It is from these inter-class tournaments that the best players are chosen for the college team. Due to the fact that four players of last years varsity team are still in college the prospects for a winning tennis season are very bright. Schedule 1923 May 2 — Moravian at Bethlehem May 12 — Lafayette at Allentown May 23 — Moravian at Allentown May 26 — Ursinus at Collegeville One Hundred Eiglity-five DANK SCHNEIDER “Dank,” well known throughout the Lehigh Valley as a ball player, came to us highly recommended. During the four years that he was at Lafayette College he was a member of the Lafayette Varsity baseball team, having captained the team during his senior year. He was a right handed pitcher and in 1907 his twirling helped the Maroon nine to be recognized as the eastern collegiate baseball champions. At the end of his college career, “Dank” joined the Reading team in the old Tri-State League, and at the end of the season was leading the league in pitching, having won 12 of the 13 games that he took part in. He also played on such other well known teams as: Catasauqua Majesties, Buffalo, Phillies, and Oakland, Cal. teams. However, “Dank” decided to stay here in Allentown rather than to embark on a major league baseball career. We were indeed very fortunate in securing such a well known baseball player for coach, and although our team did not win many of its games we must take into consideration that this was our first venture on the diamond for a number of years. One Hundred Eighty-six CIAPLA Baseball Resume Season of 1922 The announcement of the resumption of baseball among the major sports at Muhlenberg was greeted with favorable comment. A. P. “Dank” Schneider was chosen to coach the team. He played four years of baseball at Lafayette, and on such other teams as that of Reading, the Majesties of Catasauqua and spent one year on the Oakland, Cal., team. He came to Muhlenberg highly recommended and the students were looking forward to a winning season. Although the season was not as successful as it might have been, the coach and team deserve a great deal of credit for the record they have made for Muhlenberg on the diamond. Since this was our first venture on the diamond for a number of years, the students, alumni and friends of our Alma Mater wish the team and its coach the greatest success for the coming baseball season. With the loss of only a few of last year’s players who graduated with the 1922 class and an abundance of new material, we are sure to have a winning team this year.

One Hundred Eighty-eight FOO East Stroudsburg Normal 0 — Muhlenberg 33. September 23 — At Allentown, Pa. Muhlenberg opened its most famous football season by squashing the strong East Stroudsburg Normal eleven to the tune of 33 to 0. With Lehigh, Lafayette and what not delegations in the stands, Muhlenberg contended herself with only five or six simple plays to bring home the bacon. At that, though Coach Haye’s maroon proteges came here with a bigger and harder playing eleven than was expected. The local backfield had little work to do. The big Grey line opened holes a mile wide thru which the local backfield ran for consistent gains. What Stroudsburg didn’t give them in the way of practice, however, old Sol did. The thermometers registered mid-summer temperature and the playing was slow and exhausting to both teams. It was additionally marred by frequent calling of time out on account of injuries to the Stroudsburg players. The game opened with Huddy carrying Stroudsburg’s kick-off for a 15-yard advance. To him goes the credit for the first gain of the season, and after the first few minutes of play the new combination of players worked their way up the field for the first touchdown of the season. Soon after the second kick-off Holstrom recovered a fumble and took the ball over for another touchdown. Throughout the entire game the Card- inal and Grey team showed their superiority in every respect. By agreement of the two captains the playing time was shortened to 10 minutes per quarter during the last half. However the team was weakened during the third quarter by the presence of many second and third string players and by frequent substitutions. One Hundred Ninety-one East Stroudsburg was held scoreless during the entire game, Muhlen- berg scoring 7 in the first, 13 in the second, 0 in the third, and 13 in the last periods respectively. On the whole the power of the Cardinal and Grey team showed a lack of team work, which was due to the number of new players on the team, this combination entirely new did considerably well in the first game of the season. Syracuse 47 — Muhlenberg 0. September 30 — At Syracuse, N. Y. The Cardinal and Grey squad met an early season defeat in being surprised for a 47 to 0 loss at the hands of the powerful Orange team of Syracuse. This brought us back to last year’s early season defeat when Lafayette sent us home with a 48 to 0 score. The result of the game was crushing, but the morale of the team and college was not shaken, certain weaknesses became evident. Muhlen- berg did not have the staunch line that had successfully turned back the attacks of the year before. The line was weak and offered little resistance to the line plunging of Kellog and Anderson and to the long dashes of Fruggone and Bowman. On the whole, there were quite a number of weak spots on the team, and there was a lack of capable substitutes and reserve material. These conditions meant a defeat, however it is well to remember that the Orange team played such teams as Cornell and Penn State, and kept Penn State from scoring. We may well say that we were out of our class when we played Syracuse. The Cardinal and Grey team was outplayed during the entire game, although toward the end of the game they uncorked a good aerial attack but it fell short of scoring. Tursi and Conway played well at end positions while Hartman played a star game at guard. One Hundred Ninety-two Delaware 0 — Muhlenberg 12. October 7th — At Allentown, Pa. With Archie Witt in his proverbial wet day form, Muhlenberg had little trouble convincing 1500 rain soaked but loyal onlookers that the Cardinal and Grey was the master of the plucky, scrappy organization from Newark, Delaware. The Cardinal and Grey showed a decided improvement in all forms of attack and although Crum was absent from the backfield, they managed to register 16 first downs by skirting tackles and hitting the line for long and consistent gains. Huddy, Lewis, Schweimler, Witt and Gebhard were a set of backs that could not be stopped and the line was a stone wall that could not be moved. Time and again Muhlenberg worked the ball down the field only to have it lost on fumbles or penalties. Only the treacherous field and numerous fumbles prevented Muhlenberg from roll- ing up a big score. Witt, Huddy and Lewis were Muhlenberg’s stars on the offensive, while Huddy’s booting and Holstrom’s return to form featured the game. Lafayette 62 — Muhlenberg 0. October 14 — At Easton, Pa. Muhlenberg’s annual contest at Easton with the powerful Maroon team from Lafayette proved a disappointment to local followers. Lafayette, conquerors of Pitt and contenders for the eastern championship defeated the Cardinal and Grey invaders by a 62-0 score. During the first few minutes of play it was evident to the 300 Muhlenberg rooters in the east stands that the team was outclassed. Great interference, a staunch line, and fleet co-operation between Gazella and Brunner, aided by the line smashing of Gebhard and by the long punt and placement kicking of Brennan enabled Lafayette to roll up their large score. Crushed by a series of spectacular runs by the greatest backfield in One Hundred Ninety-three the country and by the charge of a rush line that numbers in its personnel several All-Americans, the Spiegelites staged a comeback in the last few minutes of play that ran Lafayette ragged and thrilled 8000 spectators who were enthusiastic in their decision that it was the most sensational advance the y had ever seen. Muhlenberg crossed Lafayette’s goal line four times, only to have the ball fall back each time. If the breaks of the game had been with us we would have scored. The Cardinal and Grey played a hard game, but their opponents outclassed them, every Cardinal and Grey man deserves credit for the fighting spirit he displayed even when defeat stared them in the face. Gettysburg 28 — Muhlenberg 7. October 21 — At Allentown, Pa. Before a crowd of 4000 rooters, the largest turn-out for a local game in years, Gettysburg forward passed and outscrapped Muhlenberg for a 28 to 7 victory. After a magnificent attack in which Witt and Huddy ripped through the visitors’ line making gain after gain and in which the Cardinal and Grey line messed all the attacks of the Gettysburg back- field, Muhlenberg suddenly crumpled and proved easy picking for the speedy visitors. When Witt was forced out of the game on account of eye trouble the defense of the Grey team seemed to weaken. Gettysburg started an aerial attack that rivaled Muhlenberg at its best. Bream to Emmanuel worked like Crum to Holstrom, but touch- downs in the main were scored by this method. Emmanuel, her star end, gained considerable acreage and put the ball in position for a score several times. The absence of Gebhard in the backfield weakened the secondary defense, which proved to be very weak. However, this was offset by the tight line defense. Witt, Huddy, Hartman and Slemmer played a star game. Lehigh 26 — Muhlenberg 7. October 28 — At Bethlehem, Pa. In a game replete with fumbles and penalties for offsides, quite different from the fast, spectacular struggle of the year before, Lehigh advanced herself for her 14-13 defeat at the hands of the 1921 Cardinal and Grey squad by trouncing Muhlenberg’s steel backs by a score of 26-7. Muhlenberg reversed the dope by putting up a dogged defense that she did not equal during the year and followed it up with a forward pass attack in the last quarter that netted a touchdown and brought woe to the Lehigh supporters who had calculated on a 24 point win for the Brown and White. Crum added the try for point that helped to flatten the Lehigh pocketbooks. The Cardinal and Grey team went on the field determined to do and die and in the first half held the Brown and White to one touchdown. The ball, through a series of unfortunate kicks, penalties and fumbles, One Hundred Ninety-four was in the shadow of our goal posts for the greater part of the half but a heroic defense saved the day. The second half found her weakened by the hard fight, but when Crum was sent into the game early in the third quarter the tables again turned and forwards to Schweimler, Witt and Holstrom resulted in a touchdown by Captain Holstrom, who played his best game of the year. Hartman again starred with his exceptionally consistent work, while Schweimler starred at quarter back playing a clean and heady game, besides showing his skill in running back punts. Bucknell 33 — Muhlenberg 6. November 14th — At Lewisburg, Pa. Inspired by a big parade and a fine send-off by the entire Muhlenberg student body, Muhlenberg’s football aggregation surprised a large home- coming crowd at Lewisburg by sweeping Bucknell’s powerful team up the field in a spirited forward pass attack that netted a touchdown but a few minutes after the game had commenced. When Bucknell finally recovered f from her surprise, and got under way, she encountered a defense that proved a decided hindrance to her usual consistent attack, only a series of blocked kicks, intercepted passes and penalties enabled her to do any scoring in the first half of the game. The Cardinal and Grey team out- played the Bucknell team during the first three quarters. It was evident that the Cardinal and Grey team fought every minute of the game, but they were unable to carry the ball across for a touchdown. In the fourth quarter, Muhlenberg, spent by the energy of her attack, she crumbled before a forward pass attack, which together with a series of line bucks, netted Bucknell two touchdowns. Schweimler, E. Johnson and Tursi starred for Muhlenberg. One Hundred Ninety-five Villa Nova 16 — Muhlenberg 6. November 11th — At Allentown, Pa. Aided by the ever present jinx that has followed Muhlenberg all season, a visiting Villa Nova aggregation from down on the main line surprised another record breaking crowd of 4000 townspeople by taking Muhlenberg’s measure by a 16-6 decision. Notwithstanding the fact that every man on the Cardinal and Grey “steelbacked” eleven played the game of his life, and the desperate rally uncorked in the last half of the game, the Spiegelites were again forced to bow to “Old Lady Ill-Luck” and another defeat. Immediately after the kick-off, Longuan, the visitors’ star punter, booted a short kick that bounded in front of Witt. It was a hard punt to handle and it slipped away from “Archie” into the hands of right end Dora. With Rees in pursuit, he started up the field. It looked like a sure touchdown, but ‘Gomer” surprised the crowd by a remarkable burst of speed that brought Dora down on the 15-yard line. From here Cronin took the ball over for a touchdown. The rest of the game was nip and tuck. In the beginning of the fourth quarter Muhlenberg opened up the usual aerial attack, a long pass to Schweimler who carried the ball 30 yards through the secondary defense gave Muhlenberg her score. Then came the boomerang when Villa Nova inserted McLaren, her star line bucker into the game. He fulfilled expectations by plunging up the field in the waning moments of the game for the visitors’ second touch- down. Swarthmore 10 — Muhlenberg 17. November 18th — At Swarthmore, Pa. With a ten-point lead staring them in the face and a long season of hard luck back of them, Muhlenberg’s Cardinal and Grey warriors staged a terrific comeback in a game of thrills and squashed the Garnet in a 17-10 defeat. Muhlenberg’s “steelbacked” crew played rings around the Garnet collegians at all stag es of the game and showed a tightness of defense that smacked of last year’s successful squad and brought untold joy to the loyal Cardinal and Grey rooters in the stands and unexpected con- sternation to a crowd of 2000 Swarthmore people who fully expected Muhlenberg to bite the dust. The Garnet played a fierce game to avenge last year’s defeat but Muhlenberg matched their efforts and then some. Early in the game Asplundh intercepted a forward and ran seventy-five yards for a touch- down. Later in the half, an unfortunate exchange of punts gave him the opportunity to make a beautiful placement from the 43-yard mark. Muhlenberg came back by scoring a touchdown on a poor punt by Asplundh when Witt carried the ball 12 yards for the first score for the Cardinal and Grey. The Cardinal and Grey team could not be stopped One Hundred Ninety-six and Holstrom carried the ball 40 yards for a second touchdown. In the last quarter Crum increased Muhlenberg’s lead by booting a placement over the bar. Witt, Crum, Lewis and Loughridge played exceptional games behind the line. Freed, Rees and Hartman starred on the line, although the whole line was as firm as the rock of Gibraltar against all attempts of the Garnet back to pierce it. The victory was the greatest of the season and was well celebrated when the news reached Allentown. Fordham 20 — Muhlenberg 20. November 25th — At Allentown, Pa. Muhlenberg reached the climax of her football season, when, before a huge crowd attracted by ideal football weather, the Cardinal and Grey eleven battled the invading Fordhamites to a 20-20 deadlock. It was a game replete with long drives for touchdowns ; with spectacular forward pass attacks; and characterized by the stubbornness of each team on its goal line and by the final grind up the field by the fighting visitors — fighting our equally fighting team that contested every inch of the way. In the first two minutes of the game Holstrom carried the ball across for Muhlenberg’s first touchdown. A few minutes later Lewis carried the ball across to increase the score. In the second quarter, after an advance of 34 yards, Crum passed to Witt from his 49-yard line. Witt took the 20-yard pass and carried it 30 yards for a touchdown. Now the visiting team started and crept up within six points and finally in the last moments of the game, tied the contest at 20 all. The spectacular charge and leap of “Jack” Weston in blocking Fordham’s last try-for-point saved the day for the Cardinal and Grey. The Cardinal and Grey team was a fighting unit with Weston, Lewis, Rees and Witt starring. One Hundred, Ninety-seven CIAPLA 1924 Ursinus 0 — Muhlenberg 28. November 30th — At Allentown, Pa. In the final game of the season before a large crowd of students and townspeople, the Cardinal and Grey team met the yearly Thanksgiving Day invaders from Collegeville and scored their third straight victory over them by a 28-0 score. Muhlenberg’s cohort went into the game with nothing to fear and acted accordingly. As a result Ursinus, although minus the services of Captain Miller and Faye, star quarter, did consider- able gaining and holding, and in the first half particularly, put up a fight that made the Cardinal and Grey team buckle down. It was a stronger team than they expected. However, once Muhlenberg got under way, the game took a different appearance. Long runs by Crum and Witt enlivened the proceedings and Muhlen- berg began to push over her touchdowns. The third quarter opened with Muhlenberg in possession of the oval on the 45-yard line. It was only a matter of a few line plunges and forwards and Crum carried the ball across for a touchdown. The Ursinus team could not stop the Cardinal and Grey warriors and when they had rolled up a 28-0 score, Coach Spiegel made numerous substitutions until every scrub had gotten into the game. Taken as a whole the Muhlenberg team accomplished remarkable things in face of the many obstacles that confronted them from time to time and taking in consideration that they played some of the strongest teams in the country, this years team will go down in the pages of the school history as one of the hardest fighting combinations that has ever worn the Cardinal and Grey on the gridiron. One Hundred Ninety-eight CIAPLA 1924 “M” MEN John E. Spiegel, Coach It was with sincere regret that we learned of the resignation of Coach “Johnnie” Spiegel. His fighting spirit, and winning personality, have made a lasting impression on Muhlenberg fans. We shall always remember him as the developer of the team that licked Lehigh. I jf George Holstrom Superior Normal, Wisconsin Height: 5 feet, 11% inches. Weight: 166 pounds. George, our captain, led his men last year as only a fearless captain could. Always injecting moral courage and leading the men to give their utmost, George was a tower of strength to his team mates. Our captain’s uncanny ability to break up oppon- ents’ plays, and his cleverness in catching forward passes, made him dangerous to our o pponents at all times. George leaves this year, but he leaves behind him a trench of moral qualities and leadership that are to be admired by all, and a goal that future collegians can strive for. Ernest Johnson Superior Normal, Wisconsin Height: 5 feet, 9 inches. Weight: 155 pounds, Ernie, our fast and clever backfield man was handi- capped the past season by injuries. Ernie will be re- membered by his brilliant work at Bueknell, where his performance in backing up the line on defense and carrying the ball on offense made him an out- standing figure on the gridiron for the entire season. Ernie leaves this year and his loss will be a severe blow to the team of 1923. One Hundred Ninety-nine “M” MEN Knute Johnson Flandreau High, South Dakota Height: 6 feet, 1 inch. Weight: 180 pounds. “Knute” hails from South Dakota. Before entering Muhlenberg he was a member of the Wisconsin foot- ball team, which made a strong bid for the Western Conference honors. “Knute” is a very consistent player and held down the guard position for the two seasons that he has been with us. He is a very good offensive man and we will be sure to hear more of him next season. Winfred Slemmer Northeast High, Phila. Height: 5 feet, 9 inches. Weight: 150 pounds. “Winnie” showed his real calibre as a football play- er in the Gettysburg game, when he scored the only touchdown made in that game. He is a very fast and aggressive quarter-back. With another year of coaching and good earnest work, Winnie will be a star on the gridiron. Howard Lewis Easton High Height: 5 feet, 10 inc hes. Weight: 187 pounds. “Reds,” our plucky fullback, was one of our best bets. He was a line plunger and a sure tackier, a combination sought for by many but found in few. Determination and speed, with a good head, places Lewis in advance of the general run of football men. “Reds” will be back next year and a banner season can be expected of him. Two Hundred CIAPLA 1924 William J. Skean Pottstown High, Pa. Height: 5 feet, 11% inches. Weight: 185 pounds. “Buck” is a versatile player. He plays either guard position with equal facility, although he never at- tempts to pull the spectacular. Buck’s fighting spirit was much in evidence when- ever he was in the game. In a crisis he could always be depended upon to do his level best and many an opposing linesman will remember to his dying day his futile attempts to get thru stalwart “Buck.” Jacob E. Hartman Peabody High, Pittsburgh Height: 6 feet. Weight: 185 pounds. “Jack” hails from the smoky city, which is enough said. He is blessed with an abundant supp’y of grit and determination. This was shown in his right guard position, which he held down. “Jack” did much towards touchdowns that our team made, by breaking large holes into the opponent’s line in order that the backfield could go thru. I Max Fulcher Detroit Central High, Mich. Height: 5 feet, 10 inches. Weight: 180 pounds. “Ugly” started the season with a bang but was unfortunate enough to receive injuries early in the season when his knee slipped out of joint, keeping him on the sidelines for the rest of the season. Max and his educated toe were a constant terror to oppos- ing teams. He smashed the enemy lines for great gains and booted Muhlenberg to victory on numerous occasions. Two Hundred One CIAPLA ‘M” MEN Harold P. Whitenight Allentown High Height: 6 feet. Weight: 186 pounds. “Whitey,” captain-elect of next year’s team, earned that honor and title by playing a game that was second to none in the football world. He is a real pigskin warrior, and is noted for consistent and de- pendable work at tackle. “Whitey” was a sure tackier and struck terror into the hearts of our opponents when they tried to plunge thru our line. Paul Freed Allentown High Height: 5 feet, 8 inches. Weight: 160 pounds. “Bus,” playing at right end, paved the way to vic- tory for Muhlenberg in many games. One game that the fans will always recall is the Swarthmore game, when “Bus” was at his height. Playing a brand of football that was of the highest calibre, Bus played havoc with the Swarthmore eleven. Time and again he broke thru and tackled their men for ten to twelve yard losses. Carl D. Neubling Reading High Height: 5 feet, 9 inches. Weight: 170 pounds. “Monk” is probably the most scientific player on the squad. He has acquired the facility of mastering enemy plays promptly. Altho Neubling did not stand out prominently in a game he showed some real mettle in the pivot position, passing the ball accur- ately and at the same time fighting defensively. Two Hundred Two CIAPLA 1924 “M” MEN Jay Birney Crum Palmyra High, 111. Height: 5 feet, 11 inches. Weight: 175 pounds. Birney, the speedy sensational quarterback from the Mississippi Valley, plays his position with the strategy of a field marshall and with an arm possess- ing the accuracy and power of a “French 75.” When- ever the game seemed to be lost Birney would come to the rescue and thru his excellent passing procure many a touchdown. In him Muhlenberg will lose an excellent man. James Conway E. Stroudsburg Normal, Pa. Height: 5 feet, 9 inches. Weight: 155 pounds. “Butch” was introduced into college football this season as he shone from the first. He is a fast and plucky end and always plays consistent and aggressive ball. “Butch” won his varsity “M” in football and since he will be here for three more years, we expect big things from him not only in football but also in baseball. Silvo V. Tursi Englewood, N. J. Height: 5 feet, 7 inches. Weight: 160 pounds. Built close to the ground and endowed with a bull- dog tenacity, Tursi showed this year of what stuff he was really made. His steady playing made his side of the line very difficult for opponents to circle, we shall never forget the Lafayette game in which Tursi starred in recovering fumbles, and in breaking up the opponents plays. Next year Tursi should gleam like a Mazda. Two Hundred Three William Loughridge Catasauqua High Height: 5 feet, 10 inches. Weight: 170 pounds. “Bill,” the greatest defensive back ever seen in action on Muhlenberg field, came to us from West Virginia Wesleyan. On the offensive Bill can run, pass, or kick equally well. His splendid interference paved the way for many a touchdown. His great work, especially in the Swarthmore game, won for him his place among the stars in Muhlenberg’s little hall of fame. Bill is a three sport man, being even better in basketball and baseball. Harold B. Groves Western High, Detroit, Mich. Height: 5 feet, HYz inches. Weight: 195 pounds. The big boy from Detroit called “Beef”, is a very quiet and unassuming fellow. Beef came here with the determination of making Muhlenberg’s football team. He did that and more, he won a regular berth during the last part of the season. He is a good consistent worker and can always be depended upon to open large holes or smash an opposing play. With the work he started so ably this year, greater things can be expected from him next year. M. Randolph Grimmett Palmyra High, 111. Height: 6 feet, 1 inch. Weight: 205 pounds. “Grub,” the heaviest man on the team, held down left guard. It was in the Lafayette game that he found himself when he toppled the great Schwab. Down after down this giant was forced out of the play, due to the hard and consistent work of our mighty guard. Whenever a gain was needed “Grub” would sing out, “Bring it thru here,” and thru it would go. A hard worker and a fighter best describes a good football player, with these qualities we expect a lot of this youth next fall. Two Hundred Four CIAPLA 1924 M” MEN Archie Witt Detroit Western High, Mich. Height: 5 feet, 7 inches. Weight: 185 pounds. In Archie, Muhlenberg is credited with one of the best halfbacks in the East. Most of our victories are due to his rugged line plunging and his ability to zigzag thru the enemy territory. He was consistently reliable and even on wet days gave some of the greatest exhibitions of foot work ever seen on Muh- lenberg Field. Gomer Rees Greensburg High, Pa. Height: 5 feet, 11 inches. Weight: 180 pounds. “Who was that, who just made that tackle?” “That was Rees the center.” “Rees, why I just saw him fixing his socks when the play started; how did he get down there so quick? “How did he do it?” That seemed to be the question everybody asked about Gomer in a game. Always pulling the unexpected, he was a continual source of trouble to the opponents’ backfield and the power behind the line for Muhlenberg. Paul Weston Bethlehem Prep. Height: 6 feet. Weight: 180 pounds. “Jack” is a giant in moleski ns. He showed his unusual ability as a football player last year, this year he continued to play his hard, fast and aggres- sive game. As a tackle he was a sure bet and distinguished himself by throwing the opposing teams for losses and on the offensive by making large gaps in their line. Two Hundred Five “M” MEN r Edwin R. Huddy Perkiomen School, Pa. Height: 5 feet, 10% inches. Weight: 169 pounds. “Clown” first donned the Cardinal and Grey uniform of the gridiron this year, in which he brought honor to himself and to his team-mates. As long as the injury which he had incurred in the beginning of the season did not annoy him, he played a stellar role. Ed showed some real ability as a punter and next year should develop into one of the most reliable and consistent backfield men. Russell Clark Central High, Phila., Pa. Height: 5 feet, 10 inches. Weight: 185 pounds. “Russ” came to Muhlenberg in September, and altho the squad had been practising since the begin- ning of the month, this handicap only made him work much harder to reach his goal. His great line playing during practise won him the position as Tackle in the Lafayette game. From then on “Russ” was a hard and consistent player, proving that next year he will be a bulwark against our opponents. George A. Rupp George is the man under whose guidance and man- agement Muhlenberg prospered in many ways during the football season. He was a tireless worker and had a mine of ideas when it came to doing things. His congenial personality and smiling countenance will be greatly missed next season. Two Hundred Six Our New Coacli WALTER WOOD Walter “Punk” Wood, former Shurtleff College Athletic Director, who next year will coach baseball, football and basketball at Muhlenberg College, has had a unique and brilliant career in athletics. Wood showed athletic prowess when a mere youngster. In those days he played baseball with the “big guys.” A veritable midget among them, Wood held down the position of shortstop and held his own among the hitters. While in high school he led an amateur baseball team composed of men older than he. But he led them in the way that was to make a star of him later. In high school Wood first showed that quality that made him one of the city’s greatest all-round athletes. It is what makes leadership, inspires confidence and gets the possessor over many rough sports. Roosevelt had it, so did Lincoln in a different way. It is personality, and it is the same in sports as in statesmanship. Wood was an idol while in high school. The “peerless leader” they called him because he captained baseball, football and basketball teams to championships. As an end on the football team when weighing a mere 120, he was the terror of opposing teams. In 1912, his senior year — he was captain and played quarterback. Alton High that year defeated, for the third time in its history, its hated rival, Western Military Academy, mainly through Wood’s admirable playing and leadership. Not a defeat did Alton suffer that year. One tie game — with East St. Louis was played, and on the closing day of the season Alton played a return game and won, 54—0. After graduation from high school, Wood went to Kansas University. He was captain of the freshman football and basketball teams. He won his “K” in football in 1915, 1916 and 1920, and his letter in baseball in the same year. He made the basketball squad, but never won his letter. Each year he received mention for the mythical All-Missouri Valley football and baseball teams. In 1917, Wood passed up a chance to play with Alton in the Three-I League, a Class B outfit, to enter the army. He rose to first lieutenancy in France. On his return, he went back to Kansas to finish his college work, after which he became coach of Shurtleff College. Wood’s teams at Shurtleff have been successful. His greatest work has been in revising the whole program at Shurtleff and in introducing intra-mural sports. Every man at Shurtleff has taken part in some kind of athletics during the present year, with the foundation laid for future teams. While Wood has been coaching at Shurtleff, and a year at Alton High, he has found time to coach the local American Legion team. One year he played quarterback and the ex-service men’s eleven went through a season without defeat, turning back some of the more famous of Illinois Sunday teams. Wood comes with the best wishes of a large number of sport followers who have followed the progress of his career. They say, in fact know, that Wood will be successful. His personality, his great gift of leadership will make him a success at Muhlenberg, they say. We certainly welcome him most heartily to Muhlenberg and feel that the fall of 1923 will usher in one of the biggest years in athletics that Muhlenberg has yet experienced.

Although five members of the 1921-1922 squad had been lost, there was a wealth of new material in which Coach Ritter found several men of excellent basketball ability. In the pre-season workouts every man struggled hard for a place on the squad and good co-ordination and team work was developed. The outcome of the first game of any schedule is always considered as an indi- cation, for good or bad, of the outcome of the season, and everyone was eagerly awaiting the time when they could see Coach “Bill” Ritter’s team go on the floor and defend her honor and reputation against the fast Mt. Airy Seminary quintette, which was made up of former college basketball stars. The contest was very fast and hard fought from start to finish, but the Cardinal and Grey showed their superiority by piling up a 27-21 score. This victory was followed up with another one when the Cardinal and Grey team met and defeated the University Club of Reading. It was impossible to arrange a barnstorming trip for the Christmas vacation and consequently the squad returned after two weeks of rest, full of pep and determination but in rather poor condition, and they had only one day’s practice before the U. of P. game. When the Cardinal and Grey team met the U. of P. quintet on Weightman Hall floor they showed the best defensive game of any team having played on that floor during the season. It was a fast and clean played game from start to finish, and the score would have been much closer if the game would not have been so near to the holidays. Muhlenberg again hit her stride and brought home another victory when she defeated the fast Swarthmore five. During the first half the Cardinal and Grey showed such an excellent defense that Swarthmore only obtained one field goal. What proved to be one of the hardest fought games of the season, took place when the Moravian team lined up on the Prep School gymnasium floor. At the end of the first half the locals were trailing at the short end of a 20-9 score. Both teams played a faster game during the second half and Muhlenberg finally nosed out its rival by a 29-23 score. In the next game Muhlenberg made it five victories out of six starts when Haverford was taken into camp and given a 29-17 trouncing. Then followed three defeats in succession; Lehigh, St. Francis and Rutgers. In these games it seemed that the team had lost its excellent floor work and fast passing and this proved disastrous for them. However, they regained themselves again when they met the Villa Nova team, a new comer on Muhlenberg’s schedule, and defeated them by a 33-19 score. Two Hundred Twelve CIAPLA 1924 The next game was with our old rival Ursinus and this proved a rather easy victory, the team was back to its old stride again. “Every day in every way I am getting better and better” did not keep Muhlenberg moving at the cyclonic pace with which she was bowling over cage opponents during the past week when she met Delaware. The Cardinal and Grey team received an awful jolt when three of the players were eliminated by the referee for personal fouls and since only seven players made the trip, our team was badly handicapped when there were only four of our players left on the floor. These four men played a hard game a nd at the end of the second half the score was 29-29, and an extra five minute period had to be played. The Muhlenberg team being badly handicapped, the Delaware quintette succeeded in scoring six points, winning the game by a 35-29 score. For the second time within two weeks the Ursinus quintette was defeated by the Cardinal and Grey team. During the first five minutes of play the Ursinus team was ahead, but after that they were left trailing on behind and at the end of the game the score stood 40-22. The next game with Albright upset the dope when they handed us a 29-17 defeat. At first it seemed like a victory for Muhlenberg, but then the tide turned and the Albright team seemed to live up to its name, All-Bright, and with 12 minutes to play they started crawling out into the light and handed the Muhlenberg five a 29-17 defeat. Then the marvel of all marvels happened, the Cardinal and Grey team took sweet revenge for the defeat which it had received at the hands of Lehigh earlier in the year. It gave the Lehigh boys their worst defeat of the season when it snowed them under with a 30-22 score, allowing them only three field goals during the entire game. On the next week end trip the quintette was unable to keep up their work and was forced to bow to Mt. St. Mary’s, Gettysburg and Dickinson. The credit for the success of this year’s team can not be given to anyone man. All who took part in the games played their best and deserve a great deal of credit. THE SEASON’S RECORD Mt.

Away back in 1911 and 1912, when he was attending Allentown Prep, he began laying the foundations of his service to Muhlenberg. He entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1912 and proceeded at once to rock opposing football lines with the determin- ed charge of his colossal bone and sinew. He made such an excellent record in football and basketball that he was elected in 1919 to guide the destinies of the Cardinal and Grey ath- letics. Since then Coach Bill Ritter has eased the “steelbacks” thru many a tough game and hectic campaign. Did you ever see any of Bill’s men falter on account of poor condition? If so, try to prove it. No matter how hard the game or how strong the opposition Bill gets his men through in good shape. Casualties are reduced to a mere handful when he is conditioning men. In 1919 Bill took a green squad and put out a winning team. He followed this up with success in basketball. The following season how- ever was not so successful but Bill managed to enthuse mediocre material with his great Muhlenberg spirit and fight and produced good results. With the advent of “Johnnie” Spiegel, he was temporarily relieved of his responsibilities but last football season he was again called out to help develop the big men on the Cardinal and Grey line. He took up the reigns in Basketball again and experienced Muhlenberg’s most suc- cessful season in the court. He is now engaged in putting the men thru their paces on the track and in the field and though it is early to judge we feel sure that Bill will come through with a good team. Among other things, Bill has charge of Physical “torture.” We left this statement until last for good reasons and we propose to pass over it as hastily as possible for even more obvious ones. Our only comment is that we envy those who possess doctors’ excuses, though we realize that Bill is always working for our physical well being and does, we admit, produce results. . ri : Coach William S. Ritter Two Hundred Fourteen Two H undred Seventeen Two Hundred Nineteen CIAPLA 1924 ULL of enthusiasm and expectation, the Glee Club started out early this season to win more laurels for Muhlenberg. Never before in the history of the college did the club have so fine a group of singers, and never before were they so heartily applauded by the many audiences which heard them sing. Never before has a Muhlenberg Club received such recognition in the newspaper world as was accorded them this season so that many people who have never heard them sing learned of their fine work through the city papers. Probably the great advance which the club made this year in pre- senting so excellent a program was due to the fact that this is the first year that Professor Marks has travelled with them and directed them in person, for wherever they sang their singing was classed with the singing of the best college and university glee clubs in the country. In Brooklyn at their first appearance in that city their singing was considered even better than that of the Columbia and Wesleyan organizations which had given concerts there a short time before the appearance of the Muhlenberg musicians, and so great has been the demand for their services that it has been impossible to fill all the engagements that have been applied for by different congrega tions. The club numbers this season were chosen from the best Glee music and the program was well balanced so as to suit the tastes of every audience. This was the first year that the club traveled without a quartette but during the early part of the season the vocal duets of Winkleman and Thomas more than made up for that discrepancy while the exquisite work of Winkleman as a violinist proved a big feature of Tivo Hundred Twenty-one the concert tour following the Lenten season. The vocal solo work of Raymond Thomas during the pre-lenten season, as well as that of Elmer Zieber later in the year was exceptionally fine and no audience would let them leave the stage until they had sung at least one encore. The club was very fortunate indeed this year to have as one of its members Paul Held whose work as a piano soloist for the club was without a doubt the finest single number on the program. His playing of the “Liebestraum” by Liszt was remarkable and no matter what kind of an audience he played before, his work won as much applause as any other selection. After midyears, for a time, it looked as if the club were going to be greatly handicapped as two of the best tenors left the college and no new material seemed available, but through special permission of the faculty these two men were permitted to remain on the club until the beginning of Lent, when Luther Bennyhoff, a tenor from last year’s club was chosen to fill their place. As the baritone soloist Mr. Thomas was no longer singing with the club Mr. Zieber was chosen in his stead so that the work of the club soon became as fine as ever and the season was finished without any difficulty in presenting a program which fulfilled the expectations of every audience. A Muhlenberg Glee Club program would hardly be complete without Edward Mattson appearing in some humorous capacity. This year he took great pleasure in telling jokes about everyone on the club as a pro- logue to the skit. As in former years he had every audience in hysterics long before the curtain rose for the play. The skit “Accelerate Larry” written by Bruce Macintosh, ’19, although much shorter than those of previous years was so full of good laughs and excitement that it delighted the spectators evening after evening. The scene is laid in the home of a college man whose sister is in love with a man from a rival fraternity. The attempt of the brother to win her away from her sweetheart by having a number of his own frat brothers call upon her is almost successful when there is an explosion — and things turn out differently. The most amusing part of the sketch was when “Larry” whose part was played by Mosser, discovers that his trousers are torn and he tries to carry on a conversation and finally to propose to “Elsie” whose part was admirably presented by Deisher. The acting of Mattson who took the part of Elsie’s brother “Tom” was up to the usual Mattson standard, while the various parts of the visiting men added zest to the presentation. Especially noteworthy was the “march of the wooden soldiers” which kept the audience in continual laughter. Never before was a skit so ably presented and great credit is due to Professor Brown for the successful staging of the whole act. Starting out with only a few of the old men the Mandolin Club was Two Hundred Twenty-two slightly handicapped but with the addition of Winkleman and several changes the organization became one of the best and most popular of the light vaudeville numbers on the program. No matter what they played or what they did the audience greeted their playing and antics with applause. But to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, it was the singing of the club that has won it so great recognition. Never has a club practised so thoroughly as this year so that every piece was polished and developed to the highest possible degree of efficiency and new pieces were inserted in the program to break up the monotony of the work which meant that the club did something no club in recent years has done in changing the program during the concert season. That this has been a banner year is due in great part not to the fine voices of the singers but to the way in which they were trained and directed by Professor Marks.

This new organization has already played for a number of the college affairs and promises to be a fine addition to the present musical clubs on the campus. The members are: Winkleman, Roepe, Kerstetter, Preuss, violins; Sipple, cello; Genzler, flute; Unversagt, clarinet; W. Frey, saxophone; P. Koch, cornet ; Acker, trombone, and P. Bennyhoff, piano. During the past season, Preuss directed, since Professor Marks has been very busy with his Glee Club work. Sipple is the treasurer. Choir The Glee Club has been pronounced as one of the best musical organ- izations in the colleges of the East because of the varied programs they render and the quality of tone produced by its wonderfully talented voices. The Glee Club is but one of the college musical organizations. Because not all those who could sing and wished to sing could get on the Glee Club, a Chapel Choir was organized. Volunteers were called for and fully fifty answered the call, however not all of them were able to pass the test. The Choir as it now stands consists of eighteen voices as follows: First tenors: Bennyhoff, Brodell, Rex, Buehler, Eidam ; Second Tenors: Sowers, Holland, Sipple, Matthias, Unversagt; First Bass: Fritz, Seiger, Chernan- sky, Neely, Schlechter; Second Bass: Zeiber, Speidel, and Rhoda. The original intention of the Chapel Choir was to lead the singing in the chapel, but because of its fine work it has been doing it has extended its services to the churches of Allentown, and has received very favorable commendations. The choir is in charge of Harry E. Sowers and under the direction and leadership of Prof. Harold Marks and Elmer Zeiber. Prof. Marks states that the choir is a close competitor of the Glee Club, and will become a good nucleus for the selection of men for the Glee Club in coming years.

For the first time in the history of the Union, a woman was entered as a contestant.

Wagner Clyde Kelchner Peter Brath Samuel Markowitz Two Hundred Fifty-nine CIAPLA LIFTING THE BURDEN As when a trapper, burdened with his catch, Wandering ab out to find his homeward way; Seeing the blue put on its evening garb; Is seized by fear as daylight slinks away; And then, as dread appears to gain its hold, And weariness comes on in all its might, He rallies hope, and taking to his heels, Darts forth — afar he sees a glimmering light. So mankind burdened with the weight of sin, Wandering about while all was clothed in night; Yet hoped for one to come and bear the load, And lead him out of darkness into light. — S. F. B. EASTER’S MESSAGE Earth hath groaned, with great convulsion She hath loosed the chains that bound her, She hath brought forth stalwart children — ■ Babbling brooks and floral niches, Leafy brooks and grassy meadows, That reveal the vernal tide. Love hath suffered, Love hath struggled, He hath cast the fetters from us, He hath brought to us this message — I have conquered sin and Satan, I am risen, I am risen, On this blessed Eastertide. — S. F. B. When the toil of day is ending, and the setting sun is sending Forth its rays to robe the parting day, In a raiment that is lighter, with a radiance that is brighter, Brighter than the starlit milky way. Then I think of one whom Heaven — For if God hath sent us blessings, Then he surely sent this angel To direct and guide my way; One to whom the art was given Art to robe the hills and valleys In the beauty of the sunset — In the beauty of the parting day. — S. F. B. Two Hundred Sixty MEMORIAL DAY ’Tis the roll of drum, and the martial tread, That reveals the homage paid our dead. Our spirit runs high, our hearts beat fast, As once more we hear the bugle’s blast. ’Tis the challenge my friend from Memory’s shrine, For she tells one and all, “This day is mine.” You men with rugged face and wrinkled brow, Think of the days of Lincoln now. You men, who sailed to Cuban shores, And brought victory to our open doors; You stalwart youths so brave and bold, Who dared the sea thru storm and cold; YOU are the men who are greeted now, As the child tossed flowers kiss your brow. — R. L. W. BEAUTY I looked for beauty in its highest forms: I found it not in meadow or in stream: The silence of the forest did not yield that wealth: The noise and clamor of the dusty street Did not disclose it: That myriad-colored bow, First seen, When flood and storm Had spent their force, Was beautiful; But still I yearned for something higher: The verdant freshness of the mountain pine I found resplendant in a beauteous form; Yet not the type of beauty that I sought: The setting sun, too, thrilled my searching soul; But hardly left an impress on my mind: Where should I look for beauty? The more I sought, the more it seemed to flee, Like one afraid: I ceased to search; And lo, like one, The blind from youth, receives his sight, I stood amazed; One need not go far to find, the finest gift that God can give. Not glittering gold But this A DIMPLED BABE. — S. F. B. CHRISTMAS Send forth thy light! Thy beams show us the way, Back o’er the years, and lead us to a night When in the fields appeared a Heavenly light. Its radiance streamed to where a Christ child lay In manger bare — O Glorious Christmas Day; You brought a babe of wondrous power and might; A King divine ; a Star of truth so bright, It guides us with its ever loving ray. Send forth thy light; resplendent as the sun, Amid a world of chaos, war, and strife; 0 let its beam reveal thy course begun So long ago — a richer, fuller life, With greater joys — yes, all life’s battles won; And lead us on — 0 ever living Son. — E. L. S. Two Hundred Sixty -one THE NEW YEAR Again another year we bid farewell; Once more we turn to welcome in the ‘New’; The ‘Old’ with swiftness passes by our view, And in our hearts its mem’ries start to swell. When New Year dawns with pealing of the bell, All visions of the past soon lose their hue; Then every pain, and all our sorrows too Like magic steal away and lose their spell. O Happy Bells! Ring out your glad refrain! In every heart repeat your joyful notes; That each may gladly catch the glorious strain, And love and gladness echo from their throats. Then happiness and peace will ever reign, And we shall not have lived this year in vain. — E. L. S. CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP Shepherds in the field at night, A guiding star to lead aright, A Saviour born of lowly birth, Peace, goodwill to men on earth. Lived to make us want to love Those on earth and those above; Died upon the cursed tree, And in his death were we made free. True fellowship this Christ child brought, True fellowship he always taught. He sought to make us better men, To lead us from a world of sin. He taught us to love each one, For by our love are battles won. To live — our fellow men to raise, And for them speak our endless praise. And now amid a world of strife, With hate and greed around us rife; Nations no more revere His name, But seek for pleasure, pomp, and fame. Men no longer look to Him Whose death freed us from every sin. And the fellowship that he freely gave, Lies buried in an earthly grave. Again His day of birth draws near, And with it love and Christmas cheer; Once more He dwells in human hearts, Once more true fellowship He imparts. He comes again His love to give, That Christian fellowship may live. 0 may we turn this Christmastide, And evermore with Him abide. — E. L. S. WORDS Words oft are futile and uselessly spent, Yet they sometimes bring sunshine to me. Good deeds on earth is true kindness lent From the Havens where blessings are free. A cheery word and a kind helping hand Does much to renew the worn soul; So practise that always; don’t idly stand, If you would make Heaven your goal. — R. L. W. Two Hundred Sixty-two A FANTASY ON THE FOUNTAIN OF LIFE The Queen of Fairyland you know, Calls council every year or so, To see what every Fairy’s done, And to see which has the Fairy Emblem won. For good deeds are the task of all; They answer every needy call, And he who’s done the most for Man, Receives a prize; a gorgeous Fairy fan. And then with all the Fairies present, They plan good-deeds to make life pleasant Thru-out the coming year or so, For noble men and women who they know. When this was done one certain night, The Queen arose in radiant light, And spoke with voice nigh unto song, That stirred the ever-splendid Fairy throng. “Friends, I know a loving man and wife, Who do deserve the Gift of Life. Now; every Fairy knows his task, Go forth and seek the gift for which I ask.” Each Fairy sped to lands afar, Led by a guiding Fairy star, And from each kingdom gathered there, A gem to form that precious gift so rare. They gathered Love and Humility, Kindness, Wisdom, and Charity. They found Patience, that suffers long, And that God-sent power, to lead the throng. One Fairy sought for precious pearls, Another discovered some tiny curls, Then colors of the lightest hue, Were found where the splendid rainbows grew. And dimple blossoms were found by one, Cheered by a splendid morning sun. Another gathered morning dew, That glistens like small teardrops always do. These gifts they carried to the throne, While Fairyland with glory shone, The Queen arose with wand in hand, “Tokens of Love; be one!” is God’s command. Then with uplifted wand and eye, She called on powers from on high. “Ye gift bestowed to man and wife, I now endow with the breath of blessed life.” In that humble home of happiness, A man, kissed brow with fond caress, And the Mother said with lips that smiled, “I thank Thee God for our blessed child.” — R. L. W. Tivo Hundred Sixty-three A Real Thanksgiving Said old Mr. Gay, On a Thanksgiving Day, “If you would have a good time, Just give something away.” So he sent a big bird To a friend on the street, And it filled him with joy, As he sat down to eat. “Now with such a fine dinner Before me I ought, Send Carrie Jane That small chicken I bought.” So he sent her a basket Filled to the brim, And Carrie smiled sweetly, So sweetly at him. “Now what can I give, In return for this prize ? I’ll just give widow Smith Those two pumpkin pies.” The widow remarked, And with great surprise, “Just to look at its yellow face, Gladdens my eyes.” “I’ll send the large cake That I baked for myself, To washwoman Biddy, I’m sure it will help.” “Oh, sure!” Biddy said, “I’ll save every crumb, And give them to each Little sparrow that comes.” And the sparrows they chirped As they went on their way, Like old Mr. Gay, On a Thanksgiving Day, “If you would have a good time Just give something away.” — E. L. S. O EASTER MORN! 0 Easter Morn! 0 Bright and Glorious Day! To us you bring the message as of old; That death no longer holds us in its sway, And never more our spirit can enfold. O Empty Tomb! 0 Thou who loudly calls! We answer Thee, Thy power is ever gone; And vict’ry Thou once held within Thy walls, Is His and ours e’er since that glorious dawn. O Risen Lord! 0 King o’er death and sin, Who on the cross Thy life’s blood freely gave; To Thee alone we owe the power to win A vict’ry over sin, and o’er the grave. O Easter Morn! 0 Ever Living Hours! We welcome thee anew with joyous hearts. In us thy spirit ever lives and towers, And happiness and peace to all imparts. — E. L. S.

Our Muhlenberg Club at Cedar Crest, is doubtless, although of a slightly different constituency, one of the organizations that supports us most energetically. The writer has no particular reason for making this declaration, however he feels certain that those men in charge of canvassing support for Muhlenberg at Cedar Crest, will heartily substantiate this conclusion. We therefore feel proud to be able to show our readers a reproduction of this active club.

Two ITundred Seventy-one lwo Act Plavj TIME: 16 years ago. ACT I. SCENE: Medical School in Philadelphia. First Med: We need a stiff and I know where one was hurried today. We will get a carriage and get it tonight. Second Med: Don’t let Phifer and Kunkle know it. They are after one too. ACT II. Six hours later. SCENE: Highway near to Philadelphia, near a road house. First Med: Gee, nobody saw us get in. We are all to the good and some jack in the pocket too. Second Med: There is a road house and I’m dry, so let’s get a drink. First Med: You’re on! Tie the horse there at that tree in the dark. Few minutes later. Kunkle: Darn it, I wonder who got that stiff. Phifer: I believe I see the lights of a tavern in the distance. Let’s get something to drink and forget that darned stiff. Kunkle: All right. Get out. Phifer (at door): Hold on, there are two from school who might have it. They look happy. Let’s examine the carriages around here. Kunkle: You take that one and I’ll see what’s here. Phifer: Here it is under the seat rolled in a sheet. Kunkle: Good, bring it over here. Phifer: I’m going to have some fun. I’m going to take stiff’s place. Kunkle: Go to it. I’ll drive in. Meds. 1 and 2 appear. First Med: Shay, that was pretty good stuff. Hie, hello shtiff has rollen front from under the sheet. Second Med (trying to shove stiff back): Shay, shtiff is getting warm. Stiff, otherwise Phifer: Yes, if you had been in hell as long as I was you would be getting warm too. —A. M. D. Two Hundred Seventy-two A DOG-ON-HOPE The post-man brought a box one day, Whose size was eight by four by two — The kind of box they usually say, “Contains some sweets for me and you.’’ But pardon, I have said it wrong; I should have mentioned my name last. You see to make a perfect song, One must forget another’s caste. I mean that two and me won’t rhyme, But two with you is just the thing; Altho it may seem like a crime, To have two queens for every king. But, Oh, those sweets and oh my sweet tooth! No words can tell the joy I had Such are the ecstasies of youth! When palate-ticklers make him glad. But woe is me. I broke the seal And lo, upon my eyes there fell — A dog, a chain, with this refrain, “I love you brother dog-on-well.” — S. F. B. OH, IT’S NICE TO GO TO COLLEGE Oh, it’s nice to go to college, When you’ve lots of jack to blow. But it’s tough to go to college, When your bocketbook is low. Oh it’s great to be in college, When your daddy sends the dough. But its rough on you in college, When most everyone, you owe. Oh it’s fine to be in college, And to step out every night. But there’s hungry times in college, When you grub for every bite. Yes it’s wonderful in college, And to get your own degree. But it’s hell to go to college, When you lack the Do Ray Me. — J. H. Two Hundred Seventy-three CONCERNING PANTS Pants are made for men Not for women. Women are made for men Not for pants. When a man pants for a woman, And a woman pants for a man, They are a pair of pants. Such pants don’t last! Pants are like molasses — They are thinner in summer And thicker in winter. Men are often mistaken in pants. Such mistakes are breeches of promise. There has been much discussion Whether pants is singular or plural. Seems to me when men wear pants it is plural, And when they don’t it is singular. Men go on a tear in pants and it is all right. But when the pants go on a tea r it is all wrong To make the pants last make the coat first. — Anon. Two Hundred Seventy- four TALES Its curious where you find a tale; You can find them wherever you look; On the dog, on the horse, on the flying quail, In the midst or the end of a book, On the head of a girl, on the back of a dime, At the base of a flying kite In the midst of a verse or the end of a rhyme. On the fluttering wings of nite, In China where tea is sold by taels, In the land of the rising sun, In the fate of a ship without it’s sails, In the playful jingle and pun. This is that good and faithful steed That aids me in the class; From its fair sides in time of need Comes with enough to pass; But if an eye should me espy My tale is told — alas. The tail of a telling tale I tell; Not the tale of a croaking frog; But the tale of a stone in an old tin can, On the tail of a ravening dog. He asked for my iron, the pressing iron, And his begging soon bore fruit. For he wanted to press a wrinkled thing— Was the tail of his full-dress suit. Heads I win, tails you lose; The bet’s a bottle of beer; “I know I will,” said he morose, There ain’t no more I fear. — S. F. B. A FRESHMAN’S LAMENT There’s a sad, pathetic story Of the days that have gone by; Listen while a Freshman tells it Though it may seem crude and dry. It was some time in September, When the oak tree casts it’s leaf, That cruel nature came and plucked her — • Came and thus provoked my grief. Yes, it’s a sad, sad, story; And my sadness drives me mad; Listen only while I tell it And no more shall I be sad. ’Twas the day I entered College And renounced my shrieking socks; ’Twas the day I moored my vessels Midst these huge, perplexing rocks; ’Twas the day I signed the warrant, That should end my joy and fun; ’Twas the day I entered College That my future was undone. Now my eyes are filled with longing For the one I’ll see no more; Still I long once more to meet her As I did some months before. I would sling away this sackcloth And no longer would I cry, For that love by Sophs forbidden For my dear, old, Jazz bow tie. — S. F. B. -rci r Two Hundred Seventy-five Jokes Bashore: Does Fritchman have a steady girl ? Repe: Yes, but I don’t think he’s going with her now. Prof. Deck — When two bodies in motion come together, is heat generated? Repass — No, Sir. I hit a guy last night and he knocked me cold. Stowell: What’s the matter, you look down- hearted ? Roepe: I am trying to figure out whether she said I danced like a zephyr or a heifer. Dietrich (in Chem. Lab.) — Kroninger, go get a stopper. Kroninger (to Prof. Kistler) — Have you a rubber stopper? Two Hundred Seventy-six Bill Ritter: Kistler, all that you ever did while at college was to make shoe polish and ask to shine shoes. Prof. Kistler: All you ever did was to take up athletics and smoke. Prof. Bowman: When a girl leaves home she does either of two things. Weston: What are they? Prof. Bowman: She either gets married or gets a job. Weston: She gets a job in both cases. Fritchman (with class at Rittersville Asy- lum) — This is just like home. Shoemaker— It ought to seem that way to you. Heard in the dark — Mathias, you surely must love me or you wouldn’t treat me like this. h £■ 6fCS£“ OT?i£- ? a T Cn£ Kti ' GV ' TS Or Ttf RCJL rJO TABi- Two Hundred Seventy-seven —• ' The CIARLA is a great invention; The Class gets all the fame.

On the campus of old Muhlenberg In class rooms or the dorms. That this is true there is no doubt, We want you all to know ; And if you want our statement proved, Just read the names below. Now Abbott heads the class of men That I would have you meet ; At our meetings you cannot keep him down ; He is ever on his feet. Dick Acker’s just the other type, Has nothing much to say, But he makes up for it you bet, When his trombone starts to play. Albright is a dandy name For Sapolio or Lux, But he is not a shining light, And to us it means — not much. Bashore is a man of letters, And his mind is filled with knowledge. If there’s anything you want to know, This man’s a walking college. Begel has a load of pep In the commons or at the game. Cheer leading is his favorite sport, And has won for him great fame. Big ‘Chief’ Benner is his name ; He’s leader in the camp. But the war-path never saw this lad, And the squaws give him a cramp. Creveling only came this year, Much of him we do not know ; But he’s a conscientious boy, For he sits in the very first row. To chapel one day Dietrich came, And he knew not how to act ; Our chapel leader was provoked, Out he went, and that’s a fact. One hardly knows that he is here, Erb is the man we mean ; He wanders ’round from class to class. Perhaps he’s in a dream. Ettinger’s one of Juda’s sons. A child of Israel ; He is a fiend for Hudson cars, And Gentile dames as well. Fedko is a dreamy bird. Or else he is in love ; In class his mind appears to be Somewhere in realms above. Flowers always like to climb. That’s how ‘Musty’ got his name. He often mounts the ladder high. To see his steady jane. lie Class of 1924 Gardner scatters seeds around ; He’s a gardner brave and bold, But not the kind you think he is ; He cultivates the soul. To Grimmet goes the honor Of being the biggest in the class ; That’s why he never gets a fine, For walking on the grass. Hartman is a football star. He shines o’er large and small ; But in the game of making love, He shines brighter than them all. Woodie’ Helfrich’s next in line; His WEEKLY work gave him a rep. And in the CIARLA too he shone ; He surely has the pep. His name is ‘Pope’ but that’s absurd For he’s not a pious chap ; All he does is court the girls, And holds them on his lap. The Right Rev. Mr. Hucke, He’s so nice and big and fat ; Bill Ritter keeps him going, Till he don’t know where he’s at. Knute Johnson is the boy with the sm He hails from the ‘Wild and Wooly’. He tackles anything in sight. And we think he’s rather ‘Bully.’ Katzman is not catty, Though the name might so imply ; But we do think him quite foxy. And like the fox he’s very sly. Some say Koehler and some Kahler, But that’s neither here nor there ; We say he’s a mighty fine fellow, And his kind is very rare. Kremser is a busy man. He haunts the locker room ; And he keeps the town frosh going, A pushing ’round the broom. L. Kroninger has so many girls, His speech must have great powers. Now we know just why it is ; He says it all with flowers. Great talent our friend Kurtz received From the goddess Terpischore. At Mealey’s he camps every night, Until they lock the door. Now Levy runs no ‘hock’ shop, Although his appellation Might lead you to believe he does. If you’ve a good imagination. Matthias comes from Reading, But his thoughts are far away ; He dreams of dear old Athens, And his ‘pony’ leads the way. Tico Hundred Eighty Mattson was a sergeant In the army years ago ; He now makes war on freshmen, And he keeps them on the go. Messer’s only half his name, We must also add the Smith ; He is the sharpest in the class, For his name is Messersmith. “Carry me back to old Virginny” Sings Miller when he’s blue. That’s a place of good tobacco, But we think that’s all, don’t you? Newhard always wears a smile, He must quite happy be. He smiles when the prof, gives him an A, And he smiles when he’s handed D. Neubling broke a pane of glass, In the good old Winter time ; He threw a snowball cold and hard, And it cost him a dollar fine. Oxenreider is a prince, He is a friend indeed ; In physics when we need his help, He’s there in time of need. ‘Good things come in little packs’, Is a saying we’ve all heard. Now Phifer is a little man, So he must be a “bird.” They call him ‘fleetfoot’ not because He is a little ‘deer’ ; But Reinbold is the fastest man, We have seen in many a year. Repass was just one year late When he joined our crew ; But now he is a loyal son Of ’24 ’tis true. If you should ever need a cook, Just call on Percy Rex ; For he concocts a better dish, Than half the other sex. Roepe is a genius ; He plays, and draws, and paints, But when it comes to study. He nearly always faints. Charlie Schanz comes from old N. Y. Where the big sky-scrapers grow. He’d like to tower above us all, If we’d only let him go. Seyfried is another bird That soars the realms of Mealey ; He is a stepper of renown. And spends quite freely. Elmer Shafer you must know, Is a very sober chap ; He hardly ever crocks a smile, We wish he’d change his map. Henry likes to do big things, And for big things does aspire. Shoemaker’s a man that nothing stops, The kind we all admire. They call him ‘Rat’, we wonder why ; No doubt because he’s small ; But Shover’s there we must admit, He vamps them large and small. Now Sittler’s quite peculiar, He’s hard to understand ; When things don’t go to suit him. He kicks to beat the band. Skean is great and wondrous wise, He thinks he is at least ; We’d hate to tell him what we think ; We shall when he’s deceased. Bob Stauffer is the next I b’lieve. He’s another quiet ‘gink.’ He seldom has a thing to say. For all he does is think. Our president is a fine young chap, Steigerwalt’s his name ; We call him ‘stag’ for short, For he’s sweet on all the dames. Stowell is the oldest here, But it doesn’t seem that way, He has so many different girls, He’s busy night and day. Strause is a scientific bird, In the library he hangs out ; He is Teedy’s right hand man, When Simpson’s not about. Unversagt — now ain’t that sweet? It’s such a pretty name. That’s why the girls all fall for Ted, But then, they’re not to blame. Now Waller is a married man, But not so very long. Too bad ; He’s such a dandy boy, And so young to have gone wrong. Cross Country is where Arthur shines ; He surely travels some. Webb sometimes gets ’bout half way back, Before they shoot the gun. The cub reporter Howard Weiss, He slings the pen and ink. He writes for papers large and small, And puts them on the blink. He’s handsome and has curly hair, For him the girls ail fall ; Jack Weston is the one we mean, He’s the fairest of us all. Now ‘ Whitey’ is a funny name, For one who is so dark, But the inside is the stuff that counts. Not the color of the bark. Williams is our business man, And he’s the last one on the mat ; So we picked him to make the bow, For he never wears a hat.
