THE ClARLA 1926 PUBLISHED BY THE JUNIOR CLASS MUHLENBERG COLLEGE VOLUME 34. DEDICATION ? To Guerney F. Afflerbach, M.S. Whose untiring efforts in our recent cam- paign have been largely responsible for the success of the Greater Muh- lenberg, the editors of the 1926 Ciarla do appreci- atively dedicate this volume.

Stewart ASSISTANT ART EDITORS Charles T. Bauer Samuel B. Schaadt FOREWORD Q NOTHER year recorded in the time book of eternity. Another mile- stone on our journey toward suc- cess. Another volume in the glorious his- tory of our Alma Mater. As other years slip by and leave their impress on our memory, may our fondest recollections be those of the years spent within the walls of this dear institution. That this book may foster those mem- ories, that your hopes, your joys, your am- bitions may receive an added zest from an occasional glimpse through these pages is the sincere wish of The Editors. Page Nine Page Ten “Even in weedless paths and grasses sown, And where God’s music has not overflown.” Page Eleven “ Nor marble, nor the gilted monuments of Princes, Shall outlive these noble halls of learning.” Page Twelve “ Her spires ascending to the skies, Symbol of learning to all eyes.” Page T hirteen ‘White as the fallen veil upon a bride, 7 he quiet snow comes down on Muhlenberg Page Fourteen " Descending to the river’s open viewing, With a great train ensuing.” Page Fifteen “Oft have I loitered o ' er thy green Jfhere humble happiness endeared each scene.” Page Sixteen Page Seventeen Dr. Haas Page Eighteen 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 I heo- logical 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 Pennsyl- vania, 1914. Muhlenberg is proud of the new development on the campus as it is manifested in the erection of the new buildings, but her exultation cannot exceed her pride in the beloved president, whose zeal was in large measure responsible for Muhlenberg’s growth. Indeed, we feel that to Doctor Haas’s efforts toward the upbuilding of Muhlenberg we owe in large part the recent honor which the college has received this year, namely, our admission to the Approved List of American Universities. By this Muhlenberg graduates enter European universities without additional preparation in America. Our president is a prominent philosopher and author, whose fame has won him a place in the Author’s Club of London. Doctor Haas is also an ardent Christian, a leader of the Lutheran Church. We count ourselves fortunate in having a president in whom this high scholarship and Christian faith are combined. If the picture we have painted of Doctor Haas gives the impression of cold, stone-like intellectuality, it is not fulfilling its purpose. Doctor Haas has the affections of the students. His delightful smile and his animated conversation are of the right sort to please the boys. Moreover, he has their interests at heart. Any one who hears the doctor’s stirring addresses in chapel can see the interest he has in the welfare not only of Muhlenberg students but in the welfare of our nation at large. We therefore conclude with the good old French cheer, Five le doctor! Page Nineteen GEORGE T. ETTINGER, Ph.D., Litt.D. D ean; Professor of the Latin Language and Literature Born at Allentown, Pa., November 8, 1860. Pre- pared at Private School and the Academic De- partment of Muhlenberg College. A.B. (Valedic- torian), Muhlenberg College, 1883. Principal of the Academic Department, 1884-92. Ph.D., New York University, 1891. President of the Muhlen- berg Alumni Association. Professor of Latin and Pedagogy, 1898-1917. Professor of Latin since 1917. Litt.D., Muhlenberg College, 1920. It is very seldom that our good dean misses classes. Many an organization must meet without his desired presence. It would be impossible for him to teach if he accepted all the invitations to banq uets, and club meetings that he has received. No Arts student can complain that the standards of an upright, Christian life were not taught him, for Doctor Ettinger imparts the philosophy of life as well as Latin litera- ture to his students. The dean also has the highly delightful quality of humor. He can enjoy a joke, but “it must be a good one.” For the poor freshmen who are jostled around and guarded by the vigilant sophs it is a relief to come into Latin class and find this friendly gentleman there. The fellows decide at once that they like him. Dr. Ettinger is also a staunch supporter of athletics and we believe that his smiling face has helped to win many a game for us. REV. ROBERT R. FRITSCH, A.M. Chaplain; Professor of Religion Born at Allentown, Pa., September 10, 1879. Prepared at Allentown High School. A.B., Muh- lenberg College, 1900. A.M., Muhlenberg College, 1903. A.M., Illinois Weslyan University, 1907. Instructor of Greek, Muhlenberg College, 1907-08. Instructor of Modern Languages, 1908-15. Gradu- ate Work, University of Pennsylvania, 1910-13. Instructor in Religion and German. Ordained a minister of the Lutheran Church, 1915. Elected Professor of Religion, 1921. Professor Fritsch is one of the best known members of our faculty. As the professor of religion he comes in contact with all the mem- bers of the jun or, sophomore, and freshman classes. As College Chaplain he is known by the entire Student Body. His courses in English Bible, teacher train- ing, missionary studies, and the religions of the world give the student a comprehensive idea of religion. He shows great interest and zeal in the conduct of his classes. Thru his efforts the chapel services have been made in- teresting and vital. In his capacity as chap- lain Professor Fritsch has cooperated with the “Y” in conducting mid-week Bible-study meetings in the Dorms. Aside from his college work he delivers sev- eral lectures every week, to large audiences in the nearby towns. He is also pastor of Saint Joseph’s Church of East Allentown. Lis- tening in on his radio helps round out the days of this busy professor. Page Twenty j | f | 2LAI92C|[ o c c k k x xago 3 STEPHEN G. SIMPSON, A.M. Professor of English Horn at Easton, Pa., May 4, 1874. Prepared at South Easton High School. A.B., Lafayette Col- lege, 1896. A.M., Lafayette College, 1898. Phi Beta Kappa. Summer Courses at Columbia Uni- versity, 1903-04. Instructor in English, Muhlen- berg College, 1911-14. Elected Assistant Profes- sor, 1914. Elected Professor, 1921. When we were freshmen we used to de- light in going to the library to talk with “Teedy.” Some of the boys would make regular trips thither to enjoy Professor Simp- son’s quiet humor or to get suggestions as to interesting books. But it was in the class room that we used to have our glorious times. It seemed that “Teedy” worked like the law of gravitation — the larger the body, the great- er the attraction. In a full class he let loose a torrent of eloquence and of humor. In subseqent years we have sobered somewhat and now come to the library to receive criti- cism on note-books that we write or on poems ( ?) that we compose. If we were taxed for the amount of our space we occupy in the material world our professor would not have to pay a very high tax, but we know that is no criterion of a man’s worth. In fact, “Teedy” is a living reminder of Goldsmith, who wrote the fa- mous words, “And still the wonder grew how one small head could carry all he knew.” It is a pleasure to hear his criticisms of the books of the past and present. ROBERT C. HORN, A.M., Litt.D. Professor of the Greek Language and Literature Born at Charleston, S. C., September 12, 1881. Prepared at Charleston High School. A. B., Muh- lenberg College, 1900. Graduate work at Johns Hopkins University, 1900-01. A.M., Muhlenberg College, 1903. Professor of the Greek Language and Literature since 1905. Alpha Tau Omega. Litt.D., Muhlenberg College, 1922. To say that Doctor Horn is Professor of Greek Language and Literature is not telling the half of it. He does fill that position at Muhlenberg and any one who has been in his classes will agree that he teaches as much philosophy as Greek. In handling Greek lit- erature he is very skilful. He can make the Greeks live before our eyes. But Doctor Horn is also Assistant to the President and chief adviser of the students. As Assistant to the President he is the man to whom all the schedules are given and in this way the new men first meet him. He has charge of the posting of the “honor roll” and informs the folks back home how soon to expect the return of the prodigal. In ad- dition to this he is the only living authority on the new elective system, which is saying quite a bit. But these are his official duties. Probably no other member of the faculty is a better friend of all the boys than “Bobby.” He is always willing to hear our troubles and is gen- erally able to help us out of them. Page Twenty-one HARRY D. BAILEY, A.M., D.S. Professor of Biology Born at Easton, Pa., January 14, 1881. Pre- pared at South Easton High School. A.B., Lafay- ette College, 1904. A.M., Lafayette College, 1909. Phi Beta Kappa. D.S., Muhlenberg College, 1923. Attended Biological Laboratory at Cold Springs Harbor, Long Island, in the summer of 1903. Ap- pointed Instructor in Biology, Muhlenberg College, 1909. Elected Professor, 1910. If there is one professor who is extremely popular with all the students, it is Dr. Bailey. This is evident because his services are in de- mand not only in Allentown as a lecturer and teacher, but also in the extension w T ork in which he makes numerous trips to neighbor- ing towns. Our high rating in the leading medical schools of the country is largely due to the untiring work of Dr. Bai ley. There is no one who is more eager to see the new science building completed than Dr. Bailey, for he has been forced to work in inadequate quar- ters. Some of his time he devoted in making interesting trips to New Jersey and elsewhere in order that the students in several of his courses may have a first-hand knowledge of the phenomena of nature. Dr. Bailey is a great tennis enthusiast and is interested in all college athletics. He can just- ly be called the students’ friend, for if any one is in trouble, Dr. Bailey will solve the difficulty. A friend in need is a friend indeed. i ALBERT C. H. FASIG, M.S. Professor of Chemistry Born at Reading, Pa., September 18, 1888. Pre- pared at Reading High School. B.S., Muhlenberg College, 1909. Alpha Tau Omega. M.S., Muh- lenberg College, 1910. Chemist in the Depart- ment of Meat and Milk Inspection, Reading. Elect- ed Instructor of Chemistry. Assistant Professor, 1917. Elected Professor, 1920. The student who comes in contact with Pro- fessor Fasig is sure to acquire the real Muh- lenberg spirit. He instills in all those who attend his classes the loyal spirit and tradi- tions of our Alma Mater. He is an ardent follower of athletics at the college, as he is the faculty advisor to the Athletic Association. He informs all new students of our wonderful record in athletic circles and never tires of telling of our victory over Lehigh in 1921. Professor Fasig is the able head of the chemistry department, where he has made for himself a record, especially in Organic Chem- istry. With the near completion of the new science building we wish Professor Fasig continued success in the chemistry department. We are sure that all who com e in contact with “Tut” will be inspired with that spirit for which Muhlenberg stands. Page Twenty-two REV. JOHN D. M. BROWN, A.M. Professor of English Born at Lebanon, Pa., December 2, 1883. Pre- pared at Lebanon High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1906. A.M., Columbia University, 1907. Ordained a minister in the Lutheran Church, 1910. Elected Instructor at Muhlenberg College, 1912. Assistant Professor in 1915. Professor in 1920. 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. What Professor Brown has done for Muh- lenberg College speaks so loudly that any- thing we might say could not be heard. Un- der his guidance Muhlenberg, with a record of six first and four second places in the In- tercollegiate Oratorical Union, has won a reputation which cannot be equalled by any of the colleges taking part. But oratory is not his only field. As teacher of Drama he has shown himself an able critic of character portrayal. And his skill as a teacher has been augmented by his success as dramatic director of the Glee Club. The suc- cess of the skits he has put on shows that he has the rare ability of practicing what he preaches. In conclusion then, what more can we say than that, be it in the capacity of teacher, director or friend, “Johnnie” is a jolly good fellow. Seven years ago Doctor Wright was called to Muhlenberg in order to organize an exten - sion school. Today there are eight hundred students in this division alone. ' Phis work has given the college a good foundation. Moreover, many a teacher who has heretofore received only a meager preparation has found Doctor Wright’s department a great boon. Doctor Wright is never satisfied. He is always looking for improvement. As soon as a change has been made in the order of things at college he begins looking for opportunities for further changes. We have frequently heard him advocating the employment of schedule cards for study hours because he does not believe the boys are taking the most ad- vantage of their time. This shows Doctor Wright’s nature. He adopts theories from a psychological standpoint and then proceeds to apply them. He is decidedly modern in his educational program and his theories present problems that make the students think. Page Twenty-three HENRY R. MUELLER, A.M., Ph.D. Professor of History Born July 21, 1887. A.B., Muhle.iberg College, 1909. A.M., Columbia University, 1915. Post- Graduate Work at Columbia, 1911-17. 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., Colum- bia University, 1922. The boys that elect Doctor Mueller’s courses are real students. They realize that there is a heavy task before them in the read- ing of collaterals and in the preparing of papers. It is wise for those who are anxious to get their money’s worth to try the history department, for Professor Mueller is scrupu- lously conscientious in this matter. We are very glad that this important branch of the social sciences is in such good hands. This professor seems to have memorized the old treaties, as he can tell nearly every little crook and corner in the former boundaries of our country with mathematical precision. Sitting and listening to discussions of the topics that interested learned men of other days, trying to absorb the momentous events that worked for the weal or woe of thousands, we are suddenly wakened with a jar when one of Professor Mueller’s witticisms suggests to us that the men of history were real men. Although he deals with things dry and dead he is a genial, jovial good fellow. ANTHONY S. CORBIERE, Ph.B., M.A. Professor of Romance Languages Born at Nice, France, March 8, 1893. Prepared at Tacoma High School. Department of Journal- ism, University of Washington, 3 years. Phi Kappa Sigma. Siggma Delta Chi. Associate University Players. Sergeant Major, Ambulance Service, U. S. A., A. E. F. Ph.B., Muhlenberg College, 1920. Graduate Work, Columbia University, 1920-21. M.A., University of Pennsylvania, 1923. One of the younger members of our faculty; one who in the few years he has been with us has brougt the Romance Department to its present high level. Being himself a Frenchman he gives to his department that added touch of foreign atmosphere which makes his work interesting as well as instructive. We feel that under his guidance the Ro- mance Department is due for greater things in the future. The start of these things is seen in the French Club, which was organ- ized thru his efforts and which promises to be an important factor at Muhlenberg. Even as he himself has proved an able mas- ter, so also has he made students of those under him in the classroom. We can say no more than that in upholding the scholastic glory of our Alma Mater Mr. Corbiere has shown himself a worthy apostle. Page Twenty-four REV. CHARLES B. BOWMAN A.M., B.D. Professor of Sociology, Economics , and Busi- ness Administration Born at Parryville, 1873. Prepared at Lehigh- ton High School. A.B., Northwestern College, 1896. B.D., Drew Theological Seminary, 1900. A.M., Northwestern .College, 1903. Graduate Work, University of Chicago, 1912-14. University of Wisconsin, 1916. Elected Professor of Sociology and Economics at Muhlenberg, 1922. Professor Bowman gives to Muhlenberg what we might call the Universal touch. He has travelled round the world and brings with him a wide outlook on life. In his classes we get a touch of the Arctics, of the Orient, of the Occident and of every nook and cranny on the surface of this earth, so that when we come forth from his presence we feel that we are world students instead of only poor mor- tals at Muhlenberg College. However he has not only cultivated a keen worldly outlook, but he has developed a fine spiritual outlook as well, which is very much in evidence when he is in charge of the Chapel Services. Here we learn of a truth that it is no misdemeanor to call him Reverend. Last but not least, Professor Bowman has gained quite a reputation as a lecturer of no mean ability. When as it sometimes happens he cannot meet his classes, we know he is up- holding the glory of Muhlenberg elsewhere. JOHN V. SHANKWEILER, B.S. Instructor in Biology Born at Huff ' s Church, Berks County, Pa., July 22, 1894. Keystone State Normal School. A. E. F., 79th Division. B.S., Muhlenberg. Phi Kappa Tau. Elected Instructor in Biology, 1921. Gradu- ate Work, Cornell University, 1924. A very busy man indeed, is this friend of ours. If he is not collecting materials for the biology laboratory with his standard four, he is either teaching a class or dissecting some animal that has fallen prey to him. H e can also hold his own in tennis, and many a hard fought game he has placed to his credit. Mr. Shankweiler is a man who will do his best to help anybody, and no student taking any of his courses lacks assistance. He is sincere in his work, and his unfailing efforts have done much to bring the biology depart- ment to its present standing. 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. a i c i yf - 1 1 LUTHER J. DECK, A.B. Instructor in Mathematics and Physics Born at Hamburg, Pa., February 7, 1899. Pre- pared at Hamburg High School. A.B., Muhlen- berg College, 1920. Delta Theta. Graduate Work, University of Pennsylvania, 1921 and 1923-24. Pi Mu Epsilon, Honorary Math. Fraternity. Elected Instructor in Mathematic and- Physics at Muhlen- berg College, 1921. Here is just a little information for strang- ers and new-comers who may wander through our buildings. If you happen to stumble into a room where a young man is assiduously writing to the accompaniment of “Forty, fifty-two, plus, and minus,” you are in the domain of Mr. Deck, our mathematics in- structor. We welcome this member of our faculty to Muhlenberg after his intermission of a year for advanced study. Mr. Deck has an acute mind for mathematics. Do you want to learn some new mental tricks? Come to the “math” club and you will spend a pleasant evening in the less familiar but none the less interesting subjects of this science. We are not intimate enough with Mr. Deck to say whether he has hitched his wagon to a star, but we know that he is fond of reading the heavens. He cannot be delving into the mysteries of astrology, for he places no con- fidence in a horoscope. He is instructor in astronomy. We hope, however, that by con- tinued application he may read at least one omen — -continued success at Muhlenberg. HOWARD R. KISTLER, B.S. Instructor in Chemistry Born at Wetherhold, Pa., March 14, 1893. Pre- pared at Allentown High School. B.S., Muhlen- berg, 1915. Chemist, J. T. Baker Chemical Com- pany. Member of the American Chemical Society; Society of Chemical Industry; Chemical Engi- neers. Elected Instructor of Chemistry at Muhlen- berg, 1921. Graduate Work at Syracuse Univer- sity, 1922-23-24. Middle initials are not always a clew to a man’s middle name. Any one who has been under Mr. Kistler’s instruction will tell you that his middle name must be Work. Being a hard worker himself he insists that every one in his department follow his example. Mr. Kistler is a believer in individual ex- perimentation. He has instituted a new sys- tem in quantitive chemistry. Students in this course may no longer form groups and have their work done vicariously. No one re- ceives credit except for the products of his own labor. It is useless to look for this busy man any- where but in the laboratory between the hours of one and seven post meridian. Mr. Kistler is a valuable man in the chemistry department. His hobby is chemistry and also more chem- istry. Whether you talk about radium or coal tar products, you will always be able to inter- est “Kis” in your discussion. Page Tvi ' eniy-six jcococnxsj | M 1 ! Cl ARL At 926 f I c ococ c c cnc G i PRESTON A. BARBA, A.M., Ph.D. Professor of German Born at Bethlehem, 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 Goettingen, Heidelberg, University of Berlin. Professor of German at Muhlenberg, 1922. Realizing that there is far more in German literature than the translation of words and idioms Doctor Barba has delved into the lower currents of thought not readily perceptible at the surface. He has caught the inspiration of the great classics and he is transmitting it in a very fascinating way to the students in his classes. Moreover, from his yearly trips to Germany he brings us many glimpses of the surroundings amid which the great masters wrote. Of Heidelberg he relates the joys and pranks of student life, and from Weimar he culls the spirit of Goethe and Schiller that gives us the incentive to study German Lit- erature. But, above all, he has impressed us with the superficiality of our aspect on life. He has taught us that in our college studies it is not sufficient merely to pass, but that the world today demands men who know more than our college studies give us, men who are more efficient than student activities can make us. He has shown us the world crisis; he has told us what we need to face it. A professor of German? Yes, but also a professor if life. HAROLD K. MARKS, A.B. Instructor in Music Born at Emaus, Pa., May 12, 1886. Prepared at Allentown High School. A.B., Muhlenberg Col- lege, 1907. Alpha Tau Omega. Studied Piano Theory and Composition under the direction of various musicians. Elected Instructor in Music at Muhlenberg, 1913. Professor Marks is beginning a movement which we hope shall grow as the college ad- vances, namely, the appreciation of music. It is rather hard work for a professor who has an aversion to “ukes” and jazz to make a deep impression on this rag-time world. The music department of the college courses, apart from the Glee Club, is still rather small. Most of us learn to know Mr. Marks at the chapel services, when he conducts the sing- ing. We feel that the services are more im- pressive since he taught us to chant the V enite last year. His student body “sings” were very popular. Mr. Marks is known outside of college for his work in drilling the Glee Club, which probably has one of the busiest schedules of the organizations in Muhlenberg. The boys taking advantage of his courses in the history of music find that he possesses a liberal measure of the sense of humor. He furnishes the pepsin to aid digestion for those who cannot stand too technical a dose of classical music. Page Twenty-seven WILLIAM S. RITTER, B.S. Director of Physical Education OSCAR F. BERNHEIM, A.B. Treasurer, Secretary, and Registrar Born at Allentown, Pa., May 17, 1892. Prepared at Allentown Preparatory School. B.S., Muhlen- berg College, 1916. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Director of Physical Culture at Muhlenberg, 1919. Bill evidently believes in the theory that might makes right and the survival of the fittest. And to survive his classes one has to be pretty fit. But seriously speaking, para- doxical as it may seem, Bill is a maker of students, for he knows full well the truth be- hind the words, “A healthy mind in a healthy body.” His 1-2-3-4 is a symbol of the well rounded curriculum for which Muhlenberg College stands and his stalwart frame is a living example of what can be done with the human anatomy under his care. Teaching is also in his line, for he now conducts classes in the theory of Physical Ed- ucation and in First Aid. With the addition of these classes we feel that Muhlenberg has taken another step forward and under Bill’s able tutorage we know that in the future when we shall be blessed with a new gymnasium that we can expect greater things from him still. Born at Mt. Pleasant, N. C., November 16, 1868. Prepared at Academic Department of Muhlenberg College. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1892. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Treasurer and Registrar of Muhlenberg College, 1907. Elected Secretary, 1919. Member of Association of College Registrars. Mr. Bernheim is one of the mainstays of Muhlenger College. He is the gentleman who collects our bills, safeguards the College finances, and (bosses) the dining hall. He is a true type of Muhlenberg man — being contiually about his business and talking little — politics. But then, that subject is now an ‘‘also ran” with Bernie. Mr. Bernheim is now also a happy partici- pant of the college’s recent prosperity. He now has a real honest-to-goodness office of his own, the store and post-office having been moved to the basement of the Ad. building. But with all his work he still finds time to be one of the most loyal supporters of Ath- letics to be found at Muhlenberg College. He never misses a foot-ball game and no mat- ter where the team happens to be we are sure to find “Bernie” there rooting for Berg. Page Twenty-eight ARTHUR T. GILLESPIE, B.S. Born at Allentown, October 13, 1901. Allentown High School, 1919. U. of P. B.S. in Economics, U. of P. 1924. Delta Sigma Phi, Delta Sigma Pi, Honorary Debating Fraternity. Arrested as he was on the verge of entering law school by an offer from Muhlenberg, Mr. Gillespie decided to serve the imposed term. Though he has been with us but a few months we feel that his worth as a debater has not been overestimated. He has become very popular with the freshmen who have come in contact with him. His attractive personality, his treasure-house of information and his ready wit make classroom work under him a real pleasure. We are positive that if these same qualities continue to flourish, his career as a lawyer will be brilliantly successful. Lender his able guidance debating rvas again revived at Muhlenberg. He has put two fine teams on the field and we know that his coach- ing is bound to make them successful. The establishing of this line of activity is sufficient proof of his w r orth to Muhlenberg. We feel that Muhlenberg has made a wise selection. CHARLES S. ALLEN, E.E., M.S. Assistant Professor of Physics Born at Bloomsburg, N. J., June 1, 1898. Pre- pared at Phillipsburg and Easton High Schools. E.E., Lafayette College, 1919. Graduate Work, Union University, 1919. Graduate Fellow, 1922- 23. M.S. in E.E., Lafayette College, 1923. Phi Beta Kappa, Tau Beta Phi, Phi Kappa Tau. Mem- ber of American Institute of Electrical Engineers. Elected Assistant Professor of Physics at Muhlen- berg College, 1923. Professor Allen holds sway in the physical laboratory and from what we hear we under- stand that he is making the boys step rather lively. However, the fellows admire this pro- fessor for his treatment of the subject as well as for his handling of the boys. He is ever willing to stop to explain some hard formula and clear away the fogs of incomprehension in the mind of some toiling student. Those who have not yet had the good for- tune to play with the toys in the laboratory have learned to know Professor Allen from contact with him at dinner in the Commons or when strolling across the campus. One of his most noticeable characteristics is his friend- liness toward the boys he meets, whether they are in his department or not.

Guerney is one of the most optimistic men at Muhlenberg. If you want proof just glance at the foot-ball schedules of the past three years and you will find that Guerney did not pick a bed of ease for his team. Always be- fore a big game you will hear Guerney express- ing his confidence in the team’s success. Per- haps it is a good rule in foot-ball to adhere to this principle of “Nothing venture, noth- ing gain,” for Muhlenberg has come into the lime-light on the gridiron. As field secretary Guerney has at tongue’s end all the merits of his college. He has been practicing a considerable amount of successful advertising. During the campaign, too, Mr. Afflerbach took an active part. In fact, he has not yet completed his work in this con- nection. He is still busy handling the funds. We heard last year that Guerney and the president went on a thousand-mile trip through Pennsylvania presenting the cause of Greater Muhlenberg.

Now that Muhlenberg is embarking upon an extensive building program it is necessary for her to have some one to superintend the grounds and buildings. Doctor Rausch has undertaken this important task. We are very glad that he has come to college, for he has left pleasing traces of his work in the dormi- tories and administration building. When we returned from our summer vacation we found that the “dorms” had been freshed up con- siderably. Doctor Rausch takes an interest in the maintenance of good order and tidiness on the campus. At present Doctor Rausch is very busily enaged in supervising the construction of the science building. If you do not find him ex- amining the work or giving instructions con- cerning the operations, you may locate him at the office of the architect occupied with press- ing business.

In 1900 there were only ten in the faculty, and only a few over 100 students. The Arts course enrolled nearly all of the stu- dents, while four years of college Greek and Latin were required of all in addition to their preparatory equipment. Indeed nearly all the studies were required. The Scientific course had only recently been organized, and the first B. S. degree had been granted in 1899. The college was housed in the old building at Fourth and Walnut Streets. It was poor. The value of the property was only $40,000.00 and the area of the college property was less than a city block. The tow r n took little interest in the institution. But the forward movement was on its way. President Seip w T as planning with the aid of the trustees for a greater institution, to meet the demands of the time. Although the progress was slow, money came, new property w T as bought, and plans were made for the building of a new college. The site purchased was then just beyond the western limits of the city, 72 acres in extent, an ideal location for a college on a prominent ridge, from which the main building would be conspicuous for many miles around. The administration building was built at a cost of some- what over $100,000, and a power-house and chemical laboratory and dormitories were constructed. In January, 1905, the college moved to its new location amid Page Thirty-four Administration Building much rejoicing. The value of the new property in 1905 was $220,000 and the endowment at this time $171,000. A new president entered upon his duties in 1904, after the lamented death of Dr. Seip, who did not live to see the fulfilment of his plans. T his new Presi- dent was Dr. John A. W. Haas, who is still at the head of the institution, and has been responsible for the growth and prosperity of the institution, for the raising of standards, for the expansion of activities, and for the success of the recent campaign for $1,000,000 for new buildings and endowment. With him there came to the college two new and young professors. Professor Rees, who did a great deal for the improvement of the department of chemistry and deserves much credit for his efforts in building up athletics at Muhlenberg, is now teaching in another institution. Professor Horn, who was called to the chair of Greek, has been very active in keeping alive an interest in the Classics, for which the college is noted. For several years, in addition to his work as Professor of Greek, he has been the Assistant to the President and Chairman of the Committee on Admissions. Of the older professors, those who were with the college in 1900, only one is still active. This is Dr. Ettinger, Professor of Latin, who has been for many years the genial Dean. Dr. Wackefnagel, the “grand old man of Muhlenberg,” has been Emeritus CSJ N)(VKS)PsKS)t JtSJ Page Thirty-five Professor for several years; and Dr. Bauman, after many years of faithful service, was retired last June. To the courses in Arts and Science there was added a Philosophical course, leading to the degree of Ph.B., provided mainly for those students who could enter college with preparation in modern, instead of ancient languages, and did not wish a course which was mainly scientific. The course has been modified since by the addition of the study of business principles, and seems to attract a good number of students. In 1915 extension work was organized, under the directorship of Professor Rees. The be- ginnings were small and discouraging, and the professors performed this extra work for almost nothing but their love for the institution; yet good foundations were laid. In 1917 Dr. Wright, Professor of Education, became Director of the Extension School, comprising both the summer session and Saturday work; and under his able administration this school has grown wonderfully in size and importance. The en- rollment in the Extension School, or School of Education as it is now called, is over 1,200. Centers have been established in Hazleton, Mauch Chunk, Coaldale, and Lansford, as well as Allentown. Teachers may thus earn college credits while carrying on their work ; and those who have received degrees f-om Muhlenberg Col- lege have reflected credit upon the institution. The first degree in the Extension School was granted in 1917. Although the college is still for men only, women have been admitted to the Extension School; and a degree was granted to a woman for the first time in 1920. During the war a number of students left to enlist and nobly performed their service to the nation. A fair number qualified for officers’ positions. Most of them returned after the war to finish their course and receive the degree. Then came the Page Thirty-six ,M , y Mty , g g " " |c cjrx.X ' Jc rvjo.j{x | j f Cl ARIA 19261 1 period of the S. A. T. C. in 1918, when the college was turned into a military school. Faculty and students did their best under the strange conditions, but the general opinion is that instruction suffered. We were glad when these conditions were at an end. After a short trial of the R. O. T. C. the college returned to its former status, and now there is no more military drill at the institution. In 1912 the Athletic Association built a dining hall, or commons, which has since been handed over to the college. The power-house and chemical laboratory have been enlarged, as were also the dormitories. These have again become too small, owing to the great number of students coming to college since the war. The fraternities have recently bought or built houses; they now house and board their members. 1 hus the pressure on the dormitories was somewhat relieved, but the demand for rooms is still very great. A general campaign was conducted in 1920 for the benefit of Lutheran church institutions. The campaign, however, was not as successful as it should have been. Nevertheless debts were paid, salaries were raised to some extent, and the college was placed in a much better financial position. A great deal of credit is due to the treasurer, Oscar F. Bernheim, for his able and economical management of the financial affairs of the institutions. During the presidency of Dr. Haas the standard has been steadily raised, and the college ranks with the standardizing agencies as an approved institution. The graduates are accepted for graduate work in the universities and for the advanced degrees; they have been generally successful in this work and have reflected credit upon their Alma Mater. During the past year a successful campaign was organized and completed for $1,000,000. The President deserves great credit for his planning and untiring energy in this work. The work was carried out through the activity of Mr. Dreschman, ably assisted by Mr. Afflerbach, the Field Secretary of the college. $1,000,000 was the gift of the General Edcation Board ; the remainder came from the Lutherans of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania (to whom the college belongs), the people of Allen- town, students, alumni, professors, and trustees. Never before was so much local in- terest shown in the institution ; the people of Allentown are now whole-heartedly with the college, and have come to regard it as their own in a special way. Half of the sum is to be added to the endowment; the other half is for much needed new buildings. The first to be erected will be the Science Building; ground has already been broken, and this building is to he built at o ' nce. The Library and the Gymnasium will im- mediately follow. Although no provision has been made for it, it is hoped that at no distant date some way will be provided for the erection of professors’ homes on the campus. At present the only houses on the campus are those of the President and the T reasurer. The number of professors at present is 20; the number of students in the college is 362; men in the Extension School, 387 ; women in the Extension School, 861. At present there are over 1,500 students enjoying the opportunities of instruction afforded by the institution. The number of degrees granted in June, 1924, was 70. This may be compared with 1900, when only 18 were graduated. The value of the property now is $928,000; and the present endowment is $505,000. There is at present no debt. $113,000 has been already collected for the building expansion. In her history of less than sixty years, Muhlenberg College has graduated about 1,200. Of these 450 have been ministers, 250 teachers, 135 doctors, 125 lawyers, and 130 in business vocations. Amo ' ng the ministers are four theological professors and eight missionaries; among the teachers are a number of college and university Page T hirty-seven professors. The college has done its best to instill into its alumni the spirit of service ; the large number of graduates in the professions, and particularly the ministry, would seem to show that this spirit is still active. The scientific collections have been steadily enlarged. A splendid collection of birds and eggs is now in possession of the college, thanks to Professor Bailey, who has done much for the growth of biological study in the college and the community. Such collections will be properly displayed in the new Science building. A small clas- sical museum has been begun, in which are exhibited some specimens of papyri and objects of daily life of the anicents. The growth of the library has been steady. In 1900 there were about 10,000 volumes; at present there are over 33,000. A new building is needed badly for housing these and making them conveniently available to the student. In a few years we expect to see this building completed. For many years Dr. Bauman was the librarian; the present librarian is Professor Simpson, of the Department of English. The success of the college in oratory has been remarkable, under the training of Professor Brown. This institution is a member of the Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Oratorical Union; and during the past thirteen years the college has won first place six times, the second place four times, and the third place three times. An interest in debating is now developing, and next year a new instructor will be in charge of this activity, to develop debating teams. T h re is an active dramatic association. ' I he Muhlenberg Weekly is published by editors chosen from the student body, and the Ciarla is the annual publication of the Junior Class. The Glee Club has been par- ticularly successful in its activities and makes annual trips, singing to large audiences. The college has been having its share of athletic activities, particularly in foot-ball. Athletic activities on the part of all students is stimulated and encouraged ; physical edu- cation is required of all. Four fraternities, Alpha Tau Omega, Phi Kappa, Tau Delta Theta, and Phi Epsilon, two national and two local, have chapters and chapter houses at Muhlenberg College. For the 57 years of her history Muhlenberg College has tried to be faithful to the name of Muhlenberg which she bears. With the loyal support of students, alumni and friends, the college looks forward to greater success a ' nd usefulness. Robert C. Horn, A.M., LL.D. Page Thirty-eight Muhlenberg’s Campaign WENTY-ONE years ago there came to Muhlenberg a man with a vision ■ C j He dreamed of a bigger and greater Muhlenberg, and during those twenty- one years he kept striving incessantly to make that dream a reality. At times discouragement and despair stared him in the face but with the faith and zeal which characterized the worthy founders of our college he kept the faith and fought a good fight until finally in the spring of 1924 success crowned his efforts. That man is none other than our beloved president, Dr. John A. W. Haas. During the time Dr. Haas has been with us various plans were tried to better the financial condition of our institutio ' n but with only a small measure of success. While other men gave up the job as a hopeless task our President was not, however, discouraged. He kept thinking and the result of his thinking was a plan whereby he saw that Muhlenberg could ultimately attain the prize to which she aspired. His plan was to stage a drive for a million dollars. But before the success of such a plan could be eventually assured many obstacles had to be overcome. In the face of pes- simistic murmurings men had to be persuaded as to the feasibility of the plan ; men had to be won over to the cause in such a way that they would give their w ' hole-hearted cooperation in making the plan a success. This Herculean task Dr. Haas took u pon his own shoulders. For two years prior to the campaign he visited the various con- ferences of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, presenting his cause and paving the way for ultimate success. He left no stone unturned. Booklets with a comprehensive plan of the Greater Muhlenberg, as designed by Warren P. Laird, the Philadelphia architect, were freely distributed and formed a convincing argument. The time now arrived whe’n the plan of Dr. Haas took definite shape. Not many months hence would determine whether or no the President’s efforts had been seed sown on good ground. " Phis date was December 1, 1923, when Mr. Charles Dreshman, of the firm of Ward, Wells, Gates and Dreshman, was called to the field as active campaign manager. Offices were established at important centers thru- out the Mfnisterium and the real work of the campaign was begun. Then came the task of convincing the people to part with their money, by far the most important and difficult part of the campaign. To do this motion pictures were taken of the various activities in and about the college. Armed with these Dr. Haas and Mr. Dreshman, accompanied by Mr. Guerney Afflerbach, field secretary of the college, and an instrumental sextet picked from the student body, conducted a tour thruout the State presenting the cause in such a convincing manner that the audiences could find no loophole for escape. Mr. Dreshman, an orator of no mean ability, appealed to the people thru their emotions holdifig up the college as the best means of preparing the youth of to-day to cope with the problems of to-morrow. Dr. Haas gave facts about the college itself showing wherein lay the great need for more buildings and a larger endowment. Practically every city and town of any importance in eastern Penn- sylvania was visited by these men during the months of Ja ' nuary and February, 1924. In Philadelphia three such meetings were held, Dr. Haas even broadcasting the cause from the station of Strawbridge a ' nd Clothiers in that city. Of course these men could not be expected to do all the work. Therefore groups of laymen were organized everywhere to assist them. Too much thanks and praise cannot be given to these volunteer workers for their unselfish sacrifice of time and money in helping to make the campaign a success. To get an idea of the scope of this volunteer group let it be briefly shown how each integral part contributed its Page Thirty-nine Mr. C. H. Dreshman Page Forty bit to make a perfect whole. The faculty of the college were untiring in their efforts, presenting the cause personally to the various church congregations t ' nruout this sec- tion. The Board of Trustees alone pledged $100,000 among themselves. Professor Charles Kressley organized the scattered alumni into a working unit which produced splendid results. The General Education Board promised $100,000 for endowment if $300,000 more would be raised for the same purpose. A great deal of credit is due Mr. E. Clarence Miller for his wonderful work as lay campaign chairman. He had with him an able corps of workers composed of such men as H. A. Weller, D.D., president of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, W. D. C. Keiter, D.D., treasurer of the Ministerium, and Mr. Theodore Abele, president of the Brotherhood of Penn- sylvania. These men, tho serving in different capacities, all worked together in splen- did harmony finally bringing the campaign to its grand climax. The week of March 1, 1924, was known as Muhlenberg week thruout the length and breadth of our constituency. During this week all Lutheran congregations were solicited with the exception of those in the city of Allentown. The results were amazing and the success of the whole campaign hinged only on the forthcoming drive in Muhlenberg’s home town which was started March 31 and continued until April 8. Allentown went about her task in a thoroughly business-like manner. She enlisted the services of the best men possible, placing in charge of the organization a com- mittee composed of Gen. H. C. Trexler, Col. E. M. Young, Dr. Reuben J. Butz and Harry I. Koch. Note these surprising figures; 250 of Allentown’s prominent men, members of various civic organizations in the city, were active in the soliciting of pledges; each church conducted its own campaign enlisting the services of 350 men and women in the cause, in all a grand total of 600 workers of whom Allentown and Muhlenberg College can be justly proud. By far the most interesting part of this drive was the luncheon held every day by these workers in the Hotel Allen, at which time they handed in their daily reports. Exciting it was indeed to watch the figures grow from day to day. Then came the grand finale, Tuesday evening, April 8, 1924. Students from the college burst- ing with enthusiasm stormed the banquet hall, where the final luncheon was being held, all eager to witness the tabulation of the final re- ports. The atmosphere was tense with excite- ment as each captain called off his figures. l he fall of a pin could have been heard when Mr. Dreshman added up that final column which would spell either success or defeat for the whole campaign. All eyes were riveted on the chart, and then suddenly a great shout went up from the assembled throng. Allentown had pledged $269,- 000, going over the top by $19,000. Truly the greatest campaign ever conducted by this city and one of which she can boast for many years to come. And now the final champter has to be writ- ten. To carry this glorious achievement to a successful close the Board of Trustees is now maintaining a campaign office at Muhlenberg, with Mr. Guefney Afflerbach in charge, who de- Miss Margaret Schwartz Page Forty-one votes his time exclusively to the collection of the money pledged. He is ably assisted by his secretary, Miss Margaret Schwartz, who has been active all through the cam- paign. The pledges are payable over a period of three years. To date, nine months since the close of the drive, $407,000 has already been collected. This speaks quite well for the financial end of the business and at the same time it shows the faith which the peo ple have in Muhlenberg as a worth-while institution, an institution founded on Christian ideals. May that faith never be violated. Clarence W. Rhoda. copy COLONIAL BUILDING ALLENTOWN, PA. June 2, 1924 Guerney F.

Beneath us all earthly things may vacillate in capricious eons, kings may fall and nations perish but we, unmindful, remain ever celestial. The sun, the moon, the planets, and the lesser stars emanate from us. We look back into time and space when we were “verdant” yea we even retrograde further to that interlude when our pater- familias hunted nuts in an elysium with Billy Bryan’s paterfamilias. Now we are waiting for the advent of the millennium, when we will graduate. Then we shall realize that the path of matrimony and its modus operandi lies before us. We see ourselves pursuing and completing further academic preparation. The world will bend her knee before us and say, come and take my offering of gold and fame. We can view in the prospective eye the Greater Muhlenberg. Still further on we can see in the mirror of time the remarkable outgrowths in all phases of life that will excite the world as we, the Senior Class, begin to take our rightful places in geodetic affairs. Before we begin to take up our pen where it was laid down a year ago and relate what has happened in the last twelvemonth let us retrospect a little. W e are appalled when we contrast those who have taken our place. Gone is the extraordinary brilliance and the wonderful mental powers that we possessed. We represent a galaxy of intellectual capacity that will probably remain unparalleled in the history of the human mind. It will ever remain to us a source of gratification that we entered college and graduated at a time when intellectualism was receiving such great contribu- tions. We are sorry to view this decay and decline of the American College in those that follow us. We are compelled against our will to admit that the classrooms are more like nurseries than anything else. It is a deplorable state of affairs. The first and foremost historical event of which we must treat is the publication of our book, the 1925 CIARLA, like unto which there is none and never will be. It reveals all the activities of the college, of the classes, and of athletics. It remains as a witness and testimony of the wonderful co-operation of our class. It certainly occupies a unique position and one of great dignity. Then came Commencement Week with its feminine friends and numerous activi- ties. Diplomas were awarded and then we realized that we were Seniors. The history of the college was only a step toward our Seniority. It was a privilege, Muhlenberg College, to be at our service. We returned in September to academic halls and daily recitations. Then came the spirit of football and a wonderful season such as no historian of previous seasons could predict. What a wonderful year for us, this Senior year of ours. Our Science building had been started and we were reassured that the Greater Muhlenberg was a reality. But now we are looking forward to the “breaking ground” ceremonies for the Library Building. We are waiting for the day when our representative will deliver our valedictory and we are prophesying a successful career for the members of the class of 1925. As we approach the close of our college career we will step back and look at the edifice that we have reared, we can find places where a stone might have been laid more effectively but in spite of this we feel that ours has been a task well done.

We have searched the archives and records of the institution and yet in spite of the painstaking care with which the search was conducted, we have been unable to find the slightest trace of any incoming class that could equal the class of 1926. We do not wish to appear conceited in the least, but this is a history (?) and, of course, a his- tory must tell the absolute facts. There- fore we must begin by saying that this is the greatest class that has ever entered the halls of our beloved Alma Mater. If any proof of this were needed we could por- tray something of the nature of our numbers, telling of those who have shone on the athletic field or of those who have already made names for themselves along the lines scholastic. But that would be entirely unnecessary and superfluous. There is a slight hesitancy on the part of the author to annoy the reader with the commonplace and uninteresting events of our first year, but facts are facts. Natu- rally we triumphed over the Sophs in the inter-class scraps and thereby gave the first evidence of our superiority. There were other successful events, such as the banquet and dance. Then finally came the exams, and the class of ’26 left for home with the feeling of a year well spent. SOPHOMORE YEAR Upon our return to Muhlenberg we found an almost insurmountable task await- ing us. Evidently through some mistake, there had been admitted to the institution the class of ’27. Therefore it was our duty and responsibility to train these verdant striplings (this phrase is always used to describe freshmen) to become loyal and worthy sons of Muhlenberg. Had anyone ever been set to such a Herculean task! However we assumed our burden and performed our duty to the best of our ability. We recog- nized from the beginning that to succeed we would have to overcome untold handi- caps. We trust that our successors will always remember the valuable advice we gave them and that they will endeavor to follow the shining example set them by the class of ’26. During this year we published the football programs and the college cal- endar, which were recognized by all to have sur- passed anything of their kind ever published at Muhlenberg. The freshmen will also remember the invaluable lessons in interior decorating w r hich they received from us on the night of their ban- quet. Probably the most important event of the year was the election of the Ciari.a staff. This was the beginning of a long train of events of which this volume is the climax. Page Sixty-five f r r c%ic c-o r -- j cv V Z 3 pXl A.RL A !§2C | [ cyocyi c xxKyicyicyxy | JUNIOR YEAR Our first year as upper classmen opened glori- ously with the greatest football team in the his- tory of the college. We might mention that without the junior members of that team there would have been some yawning holes in that stone wall of Cardinal and Grey. But there was a football classic this year which far surpassed the Army-Navy game or the Muh- lenberg-Lehigh tussle. This classic was the Pagan-Minister game. The pagans pre- sented a well oiled, smooth running machine. Those of the gospel were inclined to view with disdain the practice of their opponents and were more inclined to trust to providence for their aid and signals. To the surprise of the pagans the psalm singers uncovered a dazzling forward passing attack. But the weight of the heathens was the deciding factor and the prayers of Rev. Beck (right end) were of no avail. We soon settled down to the business of editing the Ciarla. We were resolved that this Ciarla was to occupy a place far above all previous editions and we are glad to be able to say that such is the case. The conclusion of this history is now at hand. Soon we shall be serious and dignified seniors. But before we close we must mention one event which, unfortu- nately, cannot be written as history because it hasn ' t happened yet. We have decided to revive the tradition, dropped by the preceding class, which has been known as the Junior Ausflug. Very careful plans have been laid to make this affair a howling success. By the time this book is published the Ausflug will be history and therefore we are recording it now. Thus we bring our story to a close. As we look over the past we find nothing for which we need feel ashamed. And we are just as confident that the future will bring us even more honor than has been our lot in the past. Our only hope is that we have contributed to that spirit of loyalty and love for our Alma Mater which will always live at Muhlenberg. C. Walter Seegers. Highlights It was College Day and the chapel was filled with faithful pilgrims who had come to show their interest in the college and to renew the enthusiasm which they had caught during the days of Mr. Dreshman and the campaign. A summary was given of the attainment of that success which marks a new day for the modest little institu- tion that is the pride of Allentown. Sons of the alma mater rose to tell of that still more modest past when zeal and diligence were the only structures that the school could boast of and when men were the only stones of the monument that Muhlenberg gave to the Church and to the community. Dinner brought a crisis in the Commons. It was a feat of engineering and strategy to feed the hungry crowd that poured into it. Although his force of helpers was more than doubly aug- mented by the waitresses from the Ladies’ Aux- iliary, Steward Fritchman was taxed beyond usual measure to give prompt satisfaction to all the guests. Page Sixty-six “Attention! Arms to strike — raise! Arms — down!” These were some of the stirring orders given by Mr. Ritter to the brawny cohorts of “gym” students, whose togs shone dazzling white in the September sun. It must have been a treat to the spectators to see the boys respond so promptly to the electrifying calls of the P. C. in- structor. Perhaps they also had an opportunity to learn that “gym” class is not the Inquisition that rumor would make it. The remainder of the afternoon was taken up by the age- old caste war, when the rebellious freshmen tried their utmost to convince the sophs that they too had a right to go higher in their progress toward — the “ad” building entrance. Muhlenberg College had, during the past year, the great privilege of having two native Hindus speak on the present situation in India. Mr. Manikam, who is now taking a graduate course at Columbia University, came to us as a representative of Christian India, giving us a splendid example of the high type of Christian Hindu. His speech was a masterful presentation of the customs of India. He told us of the good in India, and of the evil which we must cure by our missions. But above all, he impressed us that India is not a heathen country, but a nation with an ancient civilization, with the best of ideals that can be obtained outside of Christianity — that India needs only the spiritual refining which the love of Christ is even now effecting. Dr. Krishman is a personal friend of Mahatma Ghandi. He interpreted to us the ideals of the native Hindu movement of non-resisting defiance to England. Pre- senting the nationalistic movement in India, he informed us of the grievances against England which the Hindu knows are justifiable. After he had mentioned that Eng- land had deliberately ruined India’s industries, and that England is even now ruining India by the opium traffic, Dr. Krishman made the charge that the western world is following the ideals of Rome, rather than the narrow path of Christ. India alone is comprehending the oriental Christ, and applying his principles. Because of this fact, India will soon lead the world. Page Sixty-seven ELTON L. ANGST ADT DRYVILLE, PA. A ND folks, meet the first member of the Insoluble Triumverate. Elton has smiles and pleasant words for everybody. Someone has truthfully said that his smile is as regular as the sunrise upon which one can always depend. Now we did not have the fortune of having the companionship of this amiable fellow until our sophomore year. He was a student at the Keystone State Normal School for two years. Graduating in 1921, “Shorty” then taught in an elementary school for two terms. (Possibly thru this profession he learned to know so many women, w r ho knows?) Symphony orchestras claim his attention. He delights in playing his “Stradi- varius” in the aforesaid organizations. Dryville, Emaus, Kutztown, Reading, Allen- town and Easton request his talent at all their musicales ? ? ? ? ? Then his musical ability and appreciation are further shown by singing tenor in the choir of his home church. And, too, we mustn’t forget to mention that Elton is a serious student — in fact, one of the best in the class; at the same time he is a sociable, upright gentleman. He believes that the aesthetic side of man should be developed. Maybe it is for this reason that we find pictures of women only parked on his mantel. During vacations Elton may be found on the front platform guiding the breath-taking, third rail limited from Allentown to Reading and vice versa. Finding the mode of travel too “fast” he has purchased a Ford coupe for personal use. When he “steps on it,” he leaves whole armies of motorists behind to perish in the huge clouds of dust. To questions about his future work he shakes his head, telling us in this way that he is still undecided. Quite likely he’ll teach in one of our foreign mission schools. Regardless of what vocation he finally decides upon, the class knows that success will be his “to the full.” Born August 12, 1903. Kutztown High School. Keystone State Normal School. Druid. Democrat.

A H, dumb readers and otherwise, when you hear a timid, uncertain voice say, “Well Benny, do you think that ?” you know that Johannes Fenstermaker Angstadt, or in English, “Napoleon,” is opening a conversation. It is the invariable introduction. Napoleon delights in getting the “ideas” of other people. Possibly he is prepar- ing a book on the subject, “Have You An Idea?” For the price of thirty-nine cents you may learn how to turti your ideas into millions of dollars. When this Lilliputian is not asking questions he is asleep. Going to visit Napoleon in his study, the new man finds himself welcome but he must park his teasing mood outside or suffer the consequences from the force of this pygmy’s powerful hand. Seriousness, as he possesses it, is often noticed when it seems that a discussion is at an end in a class room, we often hear that still small voice say, “Doctor,” then a question. John is a conscientious student and is fond of spending his time unneces- sarily in research work. Ever since he was a freshman he delights in athletics — he takes two classes of physical culture each week. True, our “Napoleon” is quite like his French ancestor, Bonaparte, in stature. He is quite short. Maybe it is for this reason that he always makes the most of his stride. Art, he appreciates, especially music ; real music, not “fiendish jazz,” as he puts it. We often hear him sing to himself. Who knows but that some day he will play the role of Doctor Dul camara, a quack doctor and buffo in the opera L’Elisir D’Amore. At least he will be a liberal contributor to opera when he acquires a fortune from royalties on his book. Double fortunes will he amass by his famous surgery. Then, too, he will be recognized as one of our leading philanthropists and connoisseurs. Then for recreation he will cruise the seven seas on his magnificent steam yacht, “Napoleon.” Born February 3, 1903. Kutztown High School. Non-Parti- san. Lutheran.

We call him “Vaselino.” He hails from Parkesburg, the town where niggers abound. Of course you know where that is. Philadelphia, he says, is a suburb of his home town. This man is a real lady killer ( ?). He knows them all and has one in every — ? Ask him about his work and acquaintances made on the Kutzie or at Dornie Park. Did you ever see Bailie near Sixth Street? That is where she hangs out. Yes, even until the wee small hours of the morning. Then he comes in and duplicates it again the next night. Eight dates in one week is his record. Bailie, during his vacations, tries sales jobs. This is work in which he delights, for there he can use his line. And what a wicked one he has. Personally I think it is too heavy. He never sold much. Ask him about “Pic”? Now you know enough to discredit him in your eyes, so I will now try to offset the evil I have done. He really is a good fellow and thirty years from now he will be a prosperous business man. At least we hope so. Let’s hope he sends his “schlicker” children to Muhlenberg when he finally settles down in Parkesburg. Before closing I am reminded of a little incident which occurred while Bailie was expatiating on the sub- ject of forest preservation in oratory class one day. He raised his voice with emphatic confidence. “I venture to assert,” he said, “that there isn’t a man in this audience (we all knew that without him telling us) who has ever done anything to prevent the destruction of our forests.” One of our modest-looking boys in the rear of the chapel stood up. “I — er — I’ve shot woodpeckers,” he said. With that we’ll let Bailie go. Born June 9, 1904. Parkesburg High School. Phi Kappa Tau. Glee Club (1, 2); Press Agent (2). Weekly (1, 2). Class Basketball (1). Class Football (3). Democrat.

He is not only lucky at cards, but also at love. His uncanny ability to draw the exact card to complete a straight flush is nothing short of phenomenal, and as for his fortune in the other field of endeavor, his war cry has always been, “I may be rough, but I’m not Ruthless.” When working out on the home ground begins to pall he usually spends several days in Tamaqua. There he has been known to spend whole nights in rooms blue with the haze of cigarette smoke, where men sit silently about a table crouching desperately over a few bits of paper and a stack of ivory discs. In fact it was the fond affection which the kitty showed for Clifford as a neophyte that added “Chips” to the nomen- clature which he carried with him from the baptismal fount. Despite these vagrancies, Chips is a diligent student. In order to write a passable Sociology thesis, Chips spent all of last summer as a day laborer. The experiences he had and the impressions that were stamped upon his mind while he swung an anchor and threw shovelful after shovelful upon the waiting trucks will undoubtedly be a great help to him in his interpretation of the problems of labor. 5 ® Whether Chips is as busy as he looks is a question, but to see him strut around the Ad. building with a Shovel in his hand or a broom under his arm you would think him a second “Doc” Rausch. At times, however, he does really accomplish a good stroke of work, for wit- ness his successful piloting of the debating team as busi- ness manager this past season. We notice his ambition is to enter the business world and we believe from his past performances that he will be successful. Good luck to you, Old Scout. Born June 12, 1904. Allentown High School. A.

T) Y the way, the fellows will never forget to run in back of the nearest telegraph pole or tree for protection when they hear the deafening purr of a high powered car. Neither will they ignore the shrill blasts issuing from its horn. The speed maniac is no other than “Doc” Bauer with his Westcott Special rounding the curve on Chew Street on two wheels. As a driver he is quite adept, having driven the Allentown Hospital ambulance for a number of years, and having the distinction of being able to turn turtle three times without injury to any one; with the exception that his sportster looked rather sick and forlorn. And “Doc” is sort of eccentric, always loving and craving the atmosphere of danger and witnessing gruesome sights. By his frequent excursions into anatomical research he has become quite accustomed to depriving his olefactory nerves of delectable odors. During the summers of the years he has spent at Muhlenberg he has been working at various capacities in hospitals, insane institutions and powder mills. Ultimately, as far as the fair sex is concerned, Bauer is not interested. At least not sufficiently enough to hold the attention of any fair lady in general. We wonder why? Early to bed and early to rise is this chap’s motto. Somehow every one notes with pleasure the strides this chap has made in his class work since he has put this motto into force. Not that “Doc” was ever a poor student, but even the worldly-wise say that one is never too old to learn and learn correctly. Rest assured that Charlie takes medicine and surgery in due seriousness; you see he is preparing to enter the field of vials and instruments, and not a few have formed the opinion that he will make a good M.

He is a pastmaster in the art of getting good marks and can deliver a lecture on any subject, from “The Coal Shortage Problem at the Equator” to “Why Is a Man a Featherless Biped?” This latter subject was discussed by our famous author in Logic class to the best of perfection and without assistance, mind you. Energetic is he in his trots to the mail-box. He receives at least a dozen com- munications per week. We do not know where Dick’s heart is wandering to, but according to the letters he receives he must have a girl at almost every college in the surrounding territory. But, alas, these letters contain no sweet thing but are business communications, as we well know how Dick is manager of our Track T eam and thus receives these letters from other colleges and the contents therefore are purely public, instead of personal. Countless, yes, entirely countless, are the palpitations of Dick’s heart, as he travels with very few girls. But who can tell? May not some comely damsel be waiting for him at Reading? We surely don’t know, so how about it, Dick? Know ye that Dick is also a football star? If anyone does not believe this, ask any of the participants in the Pagan-Minister game. Dick, in his dignified personality, expects to teach school. Can you imagine him teaching a class in aesthetic dancing? Furthermore, Richard’s winning personality is en- hanced by his taking ways. He sure is a genius in more ways than one. Why only last summer he was holding down a job where he had hundreds of men under him. He was mowing grass in the cemetery. His favorite say- ing, quoted from Beck’s Encyclopedia (his own publica- tion), is, “everything a woman hears, goes in her ears and comes out her mouth.” He sure has the women spotted. But seriously, for a moment, Dick is one of the most likable chaps on the campus and we feel that his friendly ways will prove a big asset to his journey through life. Good-bye, good luck, God d , oh, my mistake, I mean, God bless you, Dick. Born December 24, 1903. Phi Epsilon. North Wales High School. Friends’ Central School. Keystone State Normal School.

B LUNTLY speaking, have you ever seen this gentleman behind the wheel of a Hudson, his hroad and blandly serene countenance gazing from behind his im- mense goggles? “Benny” is a great automobilist and delights us with his tales of quaint incidents. Effusions oftimes preface “When we toured New England,” but more often the beauties of the White Mountains or the historic inspiration of Concord. He also is quite emphatic in his denunciation of modern traffic rules, and often bitterly relates the intricacies of the streets of Boston. Now, in college activities, he is a leader among the students of art. His apprecia- tion of architecture draws together small groups of students into his room, to listen to his picturesque descriptions. Recently (within the last year) his interests have been attracted by the beauties of the Continental Drama and Novel. Not often do we find students manifesting their artistic ability in music. But Benny’s interpretations of Bach on the organ have won for him an enviable reputa- tion in the city. As a member of the Instrumental Quartet, he charms large audiences in our neighboring towns. But, unfortunately, he has not modulated his stern char- acter with the artistic charms of feminine soul. Yes, during the short period of college life, “Benny” has made a lasting impres- sion upon us. We feel sure that when in later life he meets a world which is better able to appreciate his artist soul, he will gain the recognition which he deserves. Of course we cannot conclude this biography so abruptly, but rather make some definite prophecy of his future. At college he is pursuing the elusive refinements of the classical course, nevertheless, he himself is not de- cided what vocation he will follow, but we students can easily forsee that he will be a prominent personage on the concert stage.

V A rvj I i I! fl pi H M B Y GOSH, they shot men like Lincoln and McKinley and still he lives. The Le- high Valley Transit Company may not know it, but here is the sole reason why all the high school maidens (including the hockey team) jam themselves into that 8 o’clock Muhlenberg car and produce the well-known sardine sensation. It’s curious isn’t it, why some feeble-minded females will deliberately let three or four Gordon Street cars pass, just for the sake of getting that particular Muhlenberg car. Oh well, one of these days a carnival will see him and Johnny’s fortune will be made! I don’t know how he does it, but he has the girls simply wild over him. Did you ever hear of a sheik having three dates in one P. M. ? Come around and take some lessons. Relative to class work, John likes to play cards. In fact he is one of the locker- room card sharks, and his set ambition in this line is to catch “Butch” Schaadt’s or “Ted” Gardener’s method of cheating. Each noon this crowd beats Johnny, “some- how,” but when methods are questioned each claims innocence. Watch them closely, old man, possibly you can prove to them that the hand is not quicker than the eye. Tablets could be filled about his women and parties and other dates. Somehow we believe that Bortz wishes he lived in Utah so that he could become a Mormon because he likes them all. Lately we heard that he had become especially interested in one; a girl whose father is prominent in a wholesale candy concern; ’nuf sed, Johnny, eh? Good luck to you. Z is the first letter of a number of medical and biological terms. To the superstitious this will mean luck for John, as he intends to follow medical work. The fact that he lives with his uncle, who is a successful phy- sician in town, will also be an aid to him, even though they do “pickle” a lot of things at medical school, we be- lieve with these assets he will make good.

The first year he was with us, his home town would not trust us with him, as a “dorm” student, but they compelled him to return every evening. Now he has outgrown this handicap and spends all of his time at the “frat.” Observers tell us that Johnny is a quiet, unassuming lad. We know that he believes that his own busi ' ness is all that he can take care of, so he therefore avoids butting into other people’s. While he is one of the quietest fellows at college, he is also one of the best liked. " V onder from Lehighton lie the Blue Mountains, where he spends a lot of his time when on vacation. Although he is very loyal to his Alma Mater, his hobby is not to be found here in athletics, but on the above mentioned mountains and in the woods of the Lehigh Valley, with Nellie, his favorite hunting dog. Early in his career we learned that Johnny was immune to ladies. He has never told us why he left Albright College, but you know the latter is co-ed, which didn’t in the least appeal to Boyer. His independent spirit has thrived and we believe that this is the outstanding characteristic for his being a woman hater. Rensselaer Polytech is a very renowned institution and nothing would satisfy us fnore than hearing that Johnny resumed his work there. His chief ambition is to study figures (mathematics, of course) and become a great teacher in this field, so we suggest Poly. We hope that his ambitions there will be a true illustration of his ability, which we know is in him. The writer has just been informed of the probable reason for John’s going home every day when he was first with us. Lehighton claims she furnishes the best drink in the state. But don’t be alarmed for she means the best drink of water and we know that no other kind of drink could lure our friend home. Stick to your prin- ciples, John. Born May 18, 1906.

C AN you, dear reader, comprehend that this handsome chap is one of the sharks in Logic class? Russell is continually asking questions in this particular assembly, — intelligent ones, mind you, and because of this curiosity there has been a lasting friend- ship formed between Dr. Wright and the owner of this “map.” Leroy is this boy’s middle name, and with it we associate one of the best football players on this year’s team. Whenever some well-nigh impossible tackle was to be made, Russ performed it. The fact that he missed but one-half game throughout the season verifies his ability. His classmates honored him, too, by unanimously elect- ing him captain of next year’s team. At all subjects, we find Clark to be a shini ' ng light. We doubt whether he studies as much as most of us, but that matters not, since he is prepared to answer any ques- tion from the viewpoint of a college man. But we reckon that his brightness is due to the fact that he comes from Broomall, Penna. — wherever that is. If anyone desires to know which is the best growing town to live in he’ll tell of one with an excellent fire department and its good “street.” Without any further enlightenment you’ll know that he refers to Broomall. Recently Russ began playing Romeo. We hear the pretty miss is named Hersh, but more we do not know, so we can’t tell more. We hope she plays her part as Juliet and that the romance is successful. Best of luck. Knowledge and work make men! Russ Clark is fast accumulating the former and his aid on the squad shows his mettle of industry. Born October 3, 1903.

D O you know that this beautiful, innocent-looking specimen of humanity begged membership into this class in our Junior year. Eagerly our investigating committee acted and they found that the Keystone State Normal School has given the candidate a certified right to teach public school. Doctor Wright also came to his assistance by admitting that during the past several years, through Summer and Winter Work in the Extension School, quite a number of credits were listed under the name of this handsome son of the Moravian town. In general, after being granted full membership to the class, he soon proved his ability to take exams, the same as a chicken and waffle banquet. Surely, too, we have learned that, although he clings to the Reformed faith, he makes frequent trips to the Moravian Church on Sunday evenings. (Yes, there are several charming organists in Emaus. ) Companion-friends of Emaus are at present sighing a petition claiming exemption from “phsical ed.” classes for this Romeo, as it is an established fact that ten miles of walking every night is an extraordinary thing. Hence it has been brought to our attention that the Borough Magistrate has released the police force and they are paying regular patrol fees to Romeo and his organist, Juliet. Even so, in spite of these misdeeds and human weak- nesses, we must admit he is a fine fellow to have as a school-mate and companion. Remarkably well may he enjoy music — always. Claude is certainly the most fortunate member of the class of ’25. How he ever managed to evade “Now men” and “We have those things” still remains a mys- tery to the boys. “Music certainly has its charms,” says Claude. His taste for music has largely been developed within the past two years, while listening to occasional strains from the tune of “Traumerei” played by the hand of his Juliet. Emaus High School.

For otherwise you will not be able to appreciate or understand this youthful prodigy from Jonestown (Lebanon County). Early as a freshman he volunteered his services to Johnny Spiegel, but here his talents were not appreciated. So he turned to other fields to conquer. And he cer- tainly did conquer them. In fact, George has become the chief mainstay of the Glee Club. Lately it is reported that Prof. Marks’ only worry is that the star tenor will not appear in time for the concert. Being a member of the Glee Club he has had the opportunity of mak- ing several tours of the eastern section of the State. And with what result? Sincerely, it is a well-known fact that no one else at the A. T. O. house takes the trouble to look at the mail. But there is one thing puzzling us and that is, How does the Duke manage to keep his escapades from the ears of the Duchess? Such a person certainly exists, for how else can you account for the many trips to Philadelphia? His actions bring on a persistent rumor that floats about the campus, to the effect that George expects to devote himself to the business of scripture vending. He has already gathered homiletical material from the “Bachelor’s Dream” and is getting wonderful religious training by cutting as many of “Lizzie’s” classes as possible. Every one believes that it is fortunate that Duke has only one more year to spend at our Alma Mater. For when he joined us he did not drink, swear, smoke or chew. Not that we mean to in- sinuate that he has acquired any of these evil habits, but still we should not like to see the boy go wrong. Running aside from the fact of being a devotee of orphans, women and prohibition, this member of the higher nobility, in spite of his youth, permits no one to surpass him in quantity or quality among the sweeter sex. One can easily see the quality and quantity of the above statement. Did you ever see “George” get off the last Muhlenberg car? No, on account of the “quality” and of the quantity such an undertaking would be impossible. Born February 1, 1906. Lebanon High School. Alpha Tau Omega. Glee Club (1, 2, 3). Class Secretary (1).

We have our doubts, but still it is the hub of the Lehigh Valley. It must be. For what other town can boast of a fair grounds, three cement mills, a paved street, a United Cigar Store and a “Grandpop.” Even in spite of this background he still remains the only combination of a lowly Nazarene and a modern Babbit. However, do not get the impression that he is an ascetic; despite the drawbacks of this humble place of origin, he has met with such marked success in his amorous affairs that he has succeeded in planting his pin on a raven-haired lass. She is a most strenuous objector to Paul’s sobriquet because it carries with it a name which applies to her. Nevertheless this has its advantages because he will have the honor of being the first of all of us to have grandchildren. On the whole Grampy is a sociable fellow and despite the fact that he does not own a gas chariot he is seen quite frequently at the Sixth and Linden streets filling station. Now from the speed at which he travels we might assume that his fuel is ether- ized, but then quantity is also a great factor. Indeed so great is his capacity of “Eithers” that the number often gets beyond his ken, hence he puts a notch in the woodwork each time ’round. Of course his Pennsylvania German extraction is a great asset in this line. Which reminds us that our Protagonist is torn between two ambi- tions, the chair in Pennsylvania German at the Nazareth High School or the editorship of the Obediah Grouth- amel column in the Allentown Morning Call. In either line he is qualified. He could even take over the head of an educational department, with his line, and as for Journalism, he has spent many long hours at H. Ray Haas’ printing establishment seeing to it that the periods are " not set up-side-dow T n.” Shorty lives at the A. T. O. house, where he dis- turbs the sleeping boys by dragging his heavy underwear across the floor. He was born a Lutheran and a Republi- can and holds to the beliefs of his fathers.

D EAR me, what have we here? None other than the original dapper “Drummy” himself. Listen, I’ll let you in on a secret. He’s an unabridged, revised, and rebound edition of Rudolph Valentino. Leon is noted for his wonderful head of — not knowledge or wisdom — hut hair. Remarkable, hut it is true, Drumheller, who is a Pennsylvania German, has often passed off among the girls as a native son of Israel, and it was all through the medium of his hair. That is the reason he is sometimes called “Abie.” Unassumingly “Drummy” trips a light and fantastic toe, and is reputed to be one of the leading contenders for the sheik crown at the “Plaza.” As far as is known at the present time he has sheiked a pretty little damsel down on West Street, and — . My but this boy knows physics! They say he is the shark of the class. He always was good in mathematics, so why shouldn’t he be good in this particular field? We imagine that when Professor Allen retires, “Drummy” will be unanimously elected to the chair. One would imagine that a person of such calibre would study for medicine. Well such is the case. Our able “Abie” will make a good doctor. He does not know where he is going to go for the degree but let us advise you, if he comes to the insti- ution at which “you,” gentle reader, are attending, our advice would be for you to keep your women folks out of sight. Heller is not from Hellertown. Poor Leon gets razzed more than any other man in class, and some of his classmates thought that he came from our nearby town. (From that score we imagine that this “progressive” com- munity is either the home of self-made men or else worldly-wise ones.) His slogan is “Why pick one me.” However, it must be said that “Drummy” is about as good natured and likable a chap as can be found in all Muhlenberg. Whenever there is an issue at stake, you can be sure that Leon will take the attitude that any level-minded and red-blooded American would take. Born March 5, 1904. Oley High School. Phi Epsilon.

E XTRA! Extra! who is this lad who parts his hair in such a peculiar fashion — seemingly the well-known two degrees Northeast part? Why this is Shorty, the small hut well built fellow who is constantly spreading his smile to all with whom he associates, bringing good cheer in a deep bass voice and then hurrying on, for he is a trusty man. In stature he may be small but he is mighty in achievements. Shorty is one of the members of Student Council and is highly efficient in exercising Henry Clay’s power. Yes, he is one of the few eloquent orators of the class of ’26, very rarely seen but always heard. Shorty is one of the great G. Hall Pinochle Triumvirate, in which he has proved himself champion. Casually, he is much given to moods which are sometimes hard to interpret, some- times sad (especially when box 3 fails to respond), sometimes mad, but generally glad. Highly interested is he in the opposite sex and for that reason he manifests an expression of joy when “beats” and “rice” are served in the Commons. Nearly all of his leisure time, besides playing cards, is spent in the interpretation of the “Epistles of St. John.” Why unusual? It is merely the laying of a firm foun- dation for his future life work, the ministry. Eichner has two aims in life, to become happily married and also to become a minister. We cannot possibly say which of the two is his greatest ambition, but we hope that the one may not interfere with the other. Retaining this two-fold aim he again displays his wisdom, for even if he will be disappointed in the one, which we already see is not likely to be possible, we can hardly believe that he will fail in both. From all appear- ances, however, success is the only possible reward for this young man’s efforts. Born March 23, 1902. Bethlehem High School. Druid. Glee Club (1, 2). Deutscher Verein (2, 3).

OSMAN TINSDALE EISENHAUER WALNUTPORT, PA. MR [I !v E ARNESTLY gaze upon this chap who comes from the wilds of the Blue Moun- tains, from the land of snakes and hears. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Take a good look at him, for you’ll be surprised. Coming from this “stone age” setting you would think of a long drawn out personage with dangling extremities, hut you are all wrong. Short of stature, stock build, deep set chest, he is a vest pocket edition of Strangler Lewis. In the winter of 1923 he proved it, too, for he held down the 125 pound class position on Muhlenberg’s first wrestling team. His chief ambition at the present time is to square things with that chap that threw him over at Franklin and Marshall. Sure “Eisy” is one of the locker-room card sharks, and when it comes to hasen- pfeffer, Eisy and Johnny Bortz form a mean combination. We haven’t learned whether he plays a perfectly “honest” game when beating these professionals, Bortz and Schaadt, or not, but that’s secondary, as long as he beats them. Eisy is Dr. Bailey’s star photographer, and let me tell you, he snaps a wicked camera. “Tilly” is that little chap that can be seen running all along the gridiron at a football game, with a camera in his hand. Now we cannot pass without mentioning the fact that Tynesdale is one of the trio that causes all of the attraction on the 8 o’clock Muhlenberg car. Someone has said that if Schaadt, Bortz and Eisenhauer did not pat- ronize the transit company, that worthy and reliable (????) organization would become bankrupt. However, besides the above-mentioned qualities, Tilly possesses the u nusual one of perseverance. He claims that he must leave home every morning at five — or did he say four?? — to make train connections, and that he never returns to his home until six at night. Dur- ing the short time that he remains home he must do noth- ing but study, because he always reports to class well prepared. Just that way he will “know his stuff " when he gets into the world.

CHURCH ST., BETHLEHEM, PA. “Still Waters Run Deep ” G AZE upon this pious-looking individual. He is no other than Kenneth S. Gapp, from the steel city. One would think his aspirations in life to be those of climb- ing to the top of the ladder as the world’s foremost minister. How about it, Gapp? Ask Professor Simpson about Kenneth’s quest for knowledge. He is a great book- worm, always thirsting after knowledge. Why Gapp has worn out more books at college than any other man, except Heist. Gapp surely loves the solitude of the library. Then he never stops at decent reading, but always delves into the most out- landish and unheard-of subjects. It’s just awful. Gapp is one of the most home-sick boys on the campus. It is impossible to detain him one moment after class has been dismissed. He is at Muhlenberg only two full days in the week. What does he want at Bethlehem? We heard he is fond of paint- ing, not landscapes, but fire-escapes. Yet we cannot suppose that this is the sole rea- son for Gapp’s eagerness to leave the campus. We have sometimes seen him driving a Buick down Hamilton Street, and think perhaps he may often be bent on leisure after reading the woes of Oedipus or the virtues of Agricola. Our friend seldom talks unless he has something to say, and then he frequently heightens it by a gesture reminding one at once of a cour- tesy and an orator’s highest form of manual expression. Practically no one has even seen Gapp speak to a girl. It looks as if he, too, was on the road to bachelor- hood. Get busy, Kenneth. Perseverance, as a student, makes Gapp shine. Why shouldn’t he? He can speak on almost any subject, which shows the results of his researches along pedagogical, scientifical, logical, biological, philosophical and on any other subject ending in — ical.

GENSZLER RED HILL, PA. ‘‘Behold Wild Bill, The man from Red Hill.” G AYLY, from the wilds of Red Hill, there was wafted into our presence this crea- ture with the wavy locks, and we claimed him and reared him as our own. Eagerly Bill came to Muhlenberg, with the intention of becoming a salesman, but the highest point that he has reached thus far is the position of sub-salesman for a photographer. Now, did you ever walk into his room, and gaze at the rogues gallery which he has on display on the mantel? Those pretty pictures and his smooth voice will soon move you to have your picture taken. Serene is Bill, although he comes from the wilds where lions roar, day in and day out, and here we dare not forget to relate that he has a tender heart for the opposite sex. Zealously Bill holds the crown of “Sheik” at Muhlenberg. If Rudolph Valen- tino should come to Allentown he would return to California immediately, with some of his reputation lost, having no chance with our “Sheik.” Let us tell you that Bill agrees with the sailors that it is better to have a girl in every port than to “have ’em all schtuck up in one.” Ensuing, then, this is one of the reasons Bill enjoyed himself so immensely with the Campaign Quartette last year. Oh, yes, Bill is a musician ; he plays the flute. And strange to tell, he even plays on the police band. The police certainly aren’t particular in Allentown. Regardless of his faults, Genszler is a conscientious worker and always gets what he goes after. As Business Manager of this book, his efforts have made the financial end a success and we wish him even a greater success in later life. Born January 7, 1905. East Greenville High School.

G OING through an interim of five years, Muhlenberg welcomes to her midst this gallant young man, more commonly known as Lefty, who was side-tracked by the war. Rest assured that Lefty received a lot of practical experience during his absence, a part of which time w r as spent in the Army and the rest as a manager of a large local silk concern. He did not deem himself fit as yet for the great work yet undone in the world and so returned to his Alma Mater as full-fledged member of the class of ’26. And Lefty is a plugger and has a definite purpose in view, but he is still always willing to do his share in class and school activities. He is a very good student, but has other interests besides. But why should he not, many a man at his age has more to work for than Lefty, but we all hope he may get there some day. Graver has high aspirations. This can be seen when he emerges from the Ford coupe, his daily companion. It is a marvel that so great a stature could have been contained in so small a space. Voluntary or involuntary, Lefty is (or was) a good athlete before the war and played a very good game of basketball and participated in all class athletics. He can- not participate in any of these now, for he is an ardent follower of rheumatism ; how- ever, that does not prevent him from participating in his main sport, for he is a great wielder of the cue and holds many records (not Victrola) for his ability as a pool shark. Ever hear tell that he is a very conscientious boy until he begins talking of the women and telling of fish stories, and especially of the ones that got away, women included ? Rushing through life, Lefty intends to teach the tongue-twisters and is now making good progress in mak- ing them slip from his tongue. There surely must be one twister that he cannot as yet handle, for he is still single, but we all hope he may make good on both. Allentown High School. Delta Theta. Class Basketball (1, 2).

This is the inimitable “Pap” Grove. Since Dorang left the class just one year ago, our friend is compelled to be the only one such creature here. Whenever there is anything that the ordinary person would stop to worry about, “Pap” has his ready reply, “Oh, well, I’ll get it some time.” Rarely can such a happy-go-lucky boy be found and we believe that he has acquired this sense of easiness in his home town, where automobiles are manu- factured, namely, Detroit. You know an automobile always gets there, and so does “Pap.” Archie Witt, his partner from Detroit, is ever with Grove, and they continually relate to each other all the crime that occurs at Washington Court. On looking around, we find Harold to be quite a social asset around the institution and nothing is left undone when he mingles with the social set. He has his share of admirers, but we believe that none will affect him seriously, for we expect him to return to Detroit after graduation, forgetting Allentown entirely. Vague and easy-going methods find Grove, after twenty years o f successful busi- ness, a freight agent on Pere and Marquette Railroad. Just recently he has retired from the railroad game and has consented to filling the chair of Business Administrator at his Alma Mater. He has received many kind words of congratulations from his fellow classmates and they are extremely glad that he fully decided to return here instead of to one of the other institutions from which he had received similar calls. He is going to tell us (meaning the younger generation) how to make money and be a success in business. Embarking finally into this field, we know he will produce the goods as he did on the railroad. T he student body is preparing for his return in a very unusual manner, the Item tells us. Born July 24, 1902. Western High School. A. T. O. Var- sity Football (1, 2, 3).

He is about Napoleon’s stature, and he has approximately the same geniusness for solving ingenius prob- lems. Johnny is known as the big little man of Muhlenberg. We dare not pass with- out telling a joke about John. During the recent campaign all of Dr. Haas’ mail was delivered to the down-town office, in the Colonial Theatre Building. Often our worthy president would open his mail only to have the words “John Dear” or “My Precious” stare him in the face. Because of these romantic epithets we could see the Doctor strutting about the halls in Romeo fashion. No one knew the secret for a long while but towards the end of the year the secret was told. John received his belated and opened mail and Doctor Haas became the most disappointed man on the campus. On coming into the office one day we heard the president say, “John, won’t .you let me have just one of these girls?” At studies Haws far surpassed most of us. We know from experience that John does not do much studying, he doesn’t have to, because he is naturally bright and witty. That witty, in fact, that it is well nigh impossible to beat him at mirth; he can always come “one better.” This year Johnny scrubbed for football managership; a job that he did exceedingly well. With the women he is a sheik of the first degree. We sometimes think that he’s a sailor, with a girl in every port. When his mail arrives there usually are several letters from San Francisco, Emaus, Birdsboro and many other places. The other day he was asked whom he was taking to the frat dance and he answered jovially, “Oh, a little lady from Montreal.” His acquaintanceship in Al- lentown is extensive and ever growing. It is a common occurrence for Haws to have recreation with the girls five nights per week. Summarizing, Doubt not that though from “Reading over” ' Phis man’s a hot society Rover.

Page Eighty-eight p • : ;3 PAUL WILLIAM HEIST SOUTH LANGHORNE, PA. H ERE, behold the class encyclopedia. Here intelligence and the virtues are per- sonified. No matter in which class he is, there is seldom a question which is left unanswered ; for if no one else can answer it, Heist comes to the rescue to the admira- tion of all present. He lacks vociferation and, like all great thinkers, is silent, except- ing when he pours forth words of wisdom. If this luminary is not attending a class, he is in his study interpreting the philosophical writings or poetry of the ancients. For pastime he plays several sets of tennis each season, studies, attends two physical culture classes each week, eats and sleeps (because it is conventional), writes poetry and then studies some more. Every one knows of his local prominence through his directions of affairs at the Toonerville Valley Cathedral. Huge crowds of women attend the Sabbath school to hear his inspiring messages and more especially to gaze into his meek countenance. His versatility is shown in the fact that he does everything from playing the organ to acting as disciplinarian. If you are a student, probably you are now using Heist’s Latin Dictionary, which lie recently published. When in need of a Greek Lexicon, purchase Heist’s edition, which is now being published. His German Grammar is already accepted as standard. Since Heist has made these great strides for educa- tion there is no doubt but that he will succeed Doctor Horn in occupying the chair of Greek. Later he will be an international figure in the ecclesiastical world. His scholarly expostulations will silence the modernists forever. This star has always won scholastic honors at Muh- lenberg. That man was made to develop his mind is apparently his creed. We may state in conclusion that our “War Horse” believes that he shall live in celibacy. But it is said that those of this determination “fall the hardest.” So Heist, whatever you do, don’t do it. Born July 8, 1904. Pen Argyl High School. Langhorne High School.

H AVE you ever happened to be in the halls of the “Ad” building, near the chapel, and heard some one playing the piano? If so, you would learn that it would, nine out of ten times, be Paul. This young man is our talented pianist, who, since his arrival at college, has been the accompanist for the Glee Club. That he has the welfare of the Glee Club at heart, no one who knows him will ever doubt, for at every available opportunity he is working for it. Endeavoring continually to better his playing by constant practice, the piano in chapel is never quiet. His conscientious work has been a great asset to the club directly, and indirectly to the college. Many times he has been heard to say, “I put my whole soul into my playing,” and to us, who have been privileged to hear him play, this is a living truth. You know Paul is very versatile. For music, it seems, does not only affect his fingers but also affects his feet. I’ll venture to say that he is the lightest one on his feet in the class and is easily one of the most graceful on any dance floor. Let us honestly say that Paul is one of the few fellows in our class who fights shy of the women. He simply can ' t be bothered — and yet, when he opens his heart, he reveals his longings for a certain wonderful girl, one who is fine and pure and noble. The kind of a girl one would expect such an upright young man would have for his helpmate. During the present year he is majoring in Modern Languages and is one of Prof. Corbiere’s A students. The teaching game, however, is not an ultimate goal for him. He would reach out beyond that, for his dreams and hopes lie in the realm of music. His highest ambi- tions are to study under some famous master and to travel. We hope that some good patron saint will give him the opportunity, for we feel assured that he will make a success of it, and we will be glad to hear, in the future, about our classmate, a then world famous pianist and composer.

HENDRICKS 1001 S. EIGHTH ST., ALLENTOWN, PA. “A Smiling Countenance is a Great Thing ” H IS honor, the Sheik of Bagdad, — “ Schkuzerinas” Big Boy. This boy has the most wicked way of smiling at anyone whom he likes. But when he doesn’t like you he is simply the talk of humanity. George also possesses the art of getting into more scrapes and getting out of them, than any man at college. Entirely American is he. Does he like the women? I should say. At times he becomes unmanageable. George is one of the most loyal workers. He was one of the sextette that helped Dr. Haas put over the last campaign and with the addition of his tenor voice, no wonder the people responded. Now folks, here’s a secret. He seems to love anything which rings like a bell, especially the names of ringy towns. ’Nuf sed. Don’t for a moment think that Hendricks holds the record for being the most conscientious student in the class. Wait a minute — he even sits up till 8.30 — not A. M., either — to study ? ? ?. Right now we must tell you that after all is said and done, George is a fine sort of a chap; clean, moral, upright and last, loyal to those whom he befriends. Loyalty is a big thing in life. In life work he is aiming to become a specialist in some branch of surgery — further, George is the possessor of a very fine voice which the Glee Club greedily claims. Chass, Hendricks is a little “Dutchy.” Possibly traveling with the Glee Club would make us all that way — but wait, if we recall correctly “Dutch " pro- nounced his v’s like wubbulues before he joined the club. Knowing as much about Hendricks as we do, we know that he will be a success. So George, with your talents and good mind, we send you forth in life as an honor to all who once knew you.

Bill is one of the well-known social represen- tatives of Muhlenberg, for he is known to be with the “500” quite often. We know, too, that there is an attraction for him at Wittenberg and during the holidays the social columns of the newspapers is all he reads. The mail also suffers between here and Springfield. Understand friends, Bill is not only socially inclined, but he takes an active inter- est in all school affairs and is also a good student. As a member of the Student Council he helps the Freshmen take the straight and narrow path. During this year debating was started at college and Bill was on deck for try- outs ; needless to say he won a berth on the varsity. His aim is to be a second Daniel Webster. Dust or sand, rain or snow, will not stop this fair-complected youth from attend- ing all athletic contests in which Muhlenberg is one of the participants. Even though only a youth, literally having passed through only twenty winters and nineteen sum- mers, he leads all of our cheers, doing it with grace and poise. This year has found himjin associate editor of the Weekly and he believes in having the best English in the paper. You should see him correct copy. Every spare moment that Bill has, finds him driving a car for one of the most prominent lawyers of town. Possibly he thinks that by driving this renowned character he will be able to derive more of the professional character and manner, besides receiving tutorage. Because of this intimate association between Bill and lobst, we speculate upon the last two paragraphs of this write-up. Recent years have admitted Bill to the Lehigh Coun- ty Bar. “Convicted, life imprisonment,” was heard to flow from the voice of some silver-tongued judge as the crowded court room awaited the verdict. The sentence was thrust upon some thug who had slain two college stu- dents while trying to rob them of their spectacles. Be- hold the judge is none other than our Bill. Born January 11, 1905.

" Pop " " Bill " W E have been exceedingly fortunate in securing as a specimen for this page a young man who is a favorite of the chickens, especially widows. Is he a hermit? No, the force of circumstances often obliges him to seek the privacy of his cell to escape between the horns of the dilemma, KEHRLI. Bill is one of the most firm believers in Rosseau’s theory of “The Return to Nature.” Many will verify this statement and will also vouch that “Pop” was the chief instigator in one of Muhlenberg’s greatest improvements, the stairs and the double doors in the “Ad” building. To Bill the proverbial statement, “behind locked doors,” is a reality, particularly when he is locked out, and his favorite ejaculation and demand in such a predicament is “Open this d — n door.” But when there resounded the voice of the fair occupant ( ?), Bill, like the ground-hog when he sees his shadow, withdrew to his dormitorium. He claims that he is senior, but his actions belie his words, this is true when men- tion is made of that famous word, “assessment.” The poet says that in spring a young man’s fancy slightly turns to love, but in “Pop’s” case it turned to Sauerbeer. With bold afront the valiant William made his advances, when lo, upon the scene of action the freshman Koch appeared and carried Bill’s Sauerbeer away, then quoth the raven “Never- more.” We can’t always judge a man by the town he comes from, this is particularly true in the case of “Pop.” He is jovial and has a keen sense of humor that gets him through many difficult situations. He has ambition and brains and serves as a walking encyclopedia for his many friends. Anything you want to know, just ask Jacoby, He displays unusual foresight. Drawing our conclusions from the diagnosis of the man, it is evident that success will not be wanting in his future. Born April 22, 1896. East Stroudsburg Normal School. Phi Epsilon. French Club.

It must be great to have a name that serves also as a nickname. But used in the sense the actuality dis- credits the inference, for his hair is not at all “Curly.” Lately he has received the pseudonym “Abie,” due to the fact that he borrows an endless number of things from his friends and fellows. The list includes almost everything from postage stamps through notebooks to dates with the opposite sex. He’s a bearcat with the ladies. Ever know that in this connection it might be said that this trait of Eddie’s is a remnant of his normal school training? “Live and learn” is Kehrli’s motto. He is jolly and carefree and never misses an opportunity to tease. We don’t quite see how Palmiter stands it. However, Eddie can take his own part, too. It is said that he was thinking of starting a boxing club at college. He reconsidered the plan upon recalling what had happened on a former occasion when an unlikely-looking candidate for fistic instruc- tions knocked him for a goal. Regardless of the fact that for the short time he has been at M., this young man surely has developed a wonderful drag with the faculty. Well, that’s one way of getting by. We foresee trouble for him, though, next summer, for he will not be able to avoid helping his dad cultivate the succotash bushes and “bug” the potato vines. Laughter, too, is a characteristic of this handsome man. We wonder whether personality plus is derived this way? That’s right, Curly, remember the “world laughs with you” but it doesn’ t weep. Everyone knows that laughter and humor are better assets than nerve and forwardness, so we send you off, saying, “Keep on laughing.” In closing, however, we cannot forget to tell you that Kehrli has the qualities that make for a successful life and we wish him all the joy and happiness a man could desire.

I !H i ft [y lit w I C S C " 4! f: ta or Page Ninety-four RALPH LANDEN KERSTETTER LYKENS, PA. K EEP your eyes peeled on this well built fellow who is so strong and powerful that “Bill” has excused him from all gym classes throughout the four years of his college life. Entering college three years ago, we became acquainted with him, and we thought him a quiet, unassuming individual, but we found outer appearances to be very deceitful. Ralph laid his scholastic foundation firm in his first two years and then started to take a more active part in college activities. So now he is manager of what is to be one of Muhlenberg’s most famous pinochle teams. These three years, however, have not entirely converted “Kerk” to the ways of the ladies for he ab-so-lute-ly defies the power and cunning of their charms. Even though lately it has been rumored on good authority that he and a certain Sophomore have been seen quite frequently near and about Fifteenth and Chew Streets, we doubt it. This particularly interested his roommates, who were wondering why he was making so many sudden and mysterious disappearances. What he does, though, is still a matter of conjecture among the fellows. The experiences of Kerk, here at college, have been many and varied. He usually manages to get out of bed for his classes, which usually begin at one o’clock. The reason for his late rising has been due, no doubt, to the fact that he spends practically every evening in social ac- tivities in Emaus (studying German with Prof Barba??). Eichner, Elton Angstadt and Ralph form the Insol- uble Triumvirate. The three are roommates, living like millionaires’ sons in one of the few “triple suites” that the “Dorms” offer. The three are ever together and either one becomes conspicuous by his absence. Returning from his outside work, “Kerk " also finds time to attend to college, and his work here seems not to have suffered. Ralph at times shows spurts of bright- ness and the class hopes that these will become permanent. May Lykens ever be proud of you as we will be when we see the shingle “The Rev. Ralph L.

K IEFFER was born about twenty years ago in the little village of Shillington, a suburb of Reading, where on that particular day the angels bad a holiday, and this beautiful specimen of mankind first saw the light of day. Into Muhlenberg our hero entered with the illustrious class of 1926, and man- aged, more with the help of Grossman than that of the “Profs.,” to stay with us. Kieffer is a good student, specializing in Logic and starring in Astronomy. In Logic, they say, he mastered the syllogism to such a degree of perfection that he could prove, without a doubt, that “the U. S. Senate is a fallacy.” In Astronomy he forgot more than Archimedes ever knew. Engaged in the fair sex, is he, and he makes many visits to Cedar Crest. We do not know who she is, but for such a wonderful, handsome, good-looking chap as “Jack” is, she must be a Venus. Friends often see him in the company of such notorious criminals as “Dean” Rhoda, “Kid” Lawson, etc., always looking for “eats and women.” Energy gave him the honors of guiding the destinies of our Glee Club, which organization he has been connected with ever sinc e matriculation. Besides being manager of this outfit, he is a composer and an author. His latest ballad is, “She left my apartment, so I left her flat.” Rumors tell us that he intends to take up the minis- try as his profession, and in ten years from now we ex- pect to see a pastor of one of our Lutheran churches in the body of Kieffer. He also has aspirations for the mission field, but regardless of what he makes his life calling, we know he will make good. Let us hope at least that when he gets on the mission field, if he can’t give the natives heaven, he’ll give ’em h . We close with the good old proverb, Veni, Vidi, Vici, which we hope he will practice. Born October 22, 1905. Shillington High School. Phi Epsi- lon. Glee Club (1, 2, 3) ; Manager (3).

K LOTZ is a young man, who is better known as “Doc,” who is an enterprising young business man of the class of 1926. “Doc” is always interested in the business situation of the class, as well as of the world in general. Leaving Allentown Prep, “Doc” came to Muhlenberg after having, however, studied at Lawrenceville several years previous. He is the only one of the original trio of Dorang, Kaercher and Klotz remaining in our class. His activities around college are varied and he is always there in his studies. But his main diversion is not found on the college curriculum but on the sport list, namely, hunting. T hat is why we miss him for two weeks every fall. He takes his vacation at this time and goes to the mountains for deer and he generally comes back with his aspirations fully satisfied. Of course, “Doc” has a mania for sleep and this time generally comes on a Thurs- day afternoon and evening. No one has as yet been able to compete with him on this day. We do not desire to give any secrets away why he should choose this particular time for his desired rest. Then, socially “Doc” has a high standing and few are the affairs that he misses. As for the fairer sex, it is known to his classmates that a school teacher in Bethlehem has a lease on him and thrice a week the Lehigh Valley Transit Company collects its share of shekels from the pockets of this daring youth. Ziegenfus tells us that after “Doc” is graduated from Muhlenberg he expects to enter the real estate business and we know that success is in store for him. He already is well versed in real estate work and knows just when and how to delve into property projects. We should ad- vise anyone who wants to buy a home or build one to see “Doc” before doing so because we feel that he is able to give them some first-hand information. Some day he will come back to his Alma Mater and aid her in the expan- sion to a Greater Muhlenberg. His aid and support will add greatly in the furtherance of a rapid development. His classmates wish him the best of luck in his life’s work. Lawrenceville. Allentown Preparatory School. A. T. O. Class Secretary (1). Class Football (1, 2). Non-Partisan. Lu- theran. Business. Page Ninety-seven WALTER A. KNITTLE ALLENTOWN, PA. TF it is always in a hurry, if its chief topic of conversation is politics then you may be reasonably sure that it is none other than our vivacious Walter Knittle. As secretary of the Student Council he is, of course, looked upon by the yearlings as a spectacle of awe. The upper classmen know better. He has that coveted touch of the Blarney, being able to talk upon any subject for an amazingly long period of time. However, he never says anything, so there is no harm done. But not every- body has the gift of gab. ' Therefore render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s. His chief diversion is well who knows? In fact his pastimes seem to be dis- tributed with the seasons. In the fall he delights in meting out punishment to the Frosh, in mid-winter acting as fourth hand in a pinochle game, and in spring playing politics. Lately, during the evenings, he has become notably conspicuous by his absence. The cause of it all, no doubt, uses lipstick and rolls her own, but we wish she wouldn’t keep Walter out so late at night. It isn’t good for his health. But he claims this business of being a night owl is good experience for him. He wishes to be a lawyer and therefore we can’t help but see his point. He gets plenty of practice at the “bar.” ' Balking seriously for a moment though, Walter has taken an active part in the forensic activities of the school and we feel that his ability in this line of endeavor will carry him to great heights in the future. He has been a great help to Prof. Gillespie in or- ganizing the debating activities which been again revived in this institution. As anchor man on one of our two teams he always gave his opponents a real tussle. He is also an ardent student of the social sciences. These traits we are sure are a good indication of what we can expect of Walter when he goes forth to meet the hard battle of life. May his energy never desert him and may he al- ways uphold the glory and honor of ’ 26 . Born July 9, 1905. Allentown High School. I. O. U. Repre- sentative. Secretary Student Council. Debating Team.

K NIT your brows together, dear folks, because depth and ponderation are neces- sary in dealing with this young man. He is a pre-medical student and since surgery is his ultimate goal, he believes in going into the “heart” of things. The for- tunate person who has ever seen Koch’s study, comes out with a feeling of horror — unless he, too, is a chap whose mind runs in the same channel — because skulls of various kinds line the tables, one from the famous Parisian osteologist, Tramond, to others still “in the raw.” Loose bones and dead animals in preservatives can also be found in this room, besides numbers of medical slides and text-books. Somehow “Kochie” seems to like this life, so the author of this article does not criticize, but hopes that he will follow in the footsteps of Robert Koch, the renowned bacteriologist of the Eighteenth Century. On the other hand, we must not leave you with the impression that Koch is not socially inclined. It is rare to see him at a theatre without some “little lady” at his side, but we do notice that it is always the same one — of late. (Do not misconstrue that last statement, because W. Paul’s prep school days found him with a different one each night — nearly; so, even though he accompanies but one of late, it does not say that he has lost that previous popularity.) We wonder, though, how many he courted this summer, when he spent a two months’ vacation in Missouri? Cast your eye on another angle of Koch. The only wicked thing we have noticed about him is the tricky man- ner he has in handling his Essex (his dad’s, excuse me) ; you’ve noticed, haven’t you? Well, Chew Street has stood for a lot, but when that certain Essex turns the cor- ner at Seventeenth, you can hear it yell, “So help me, Hannerh.” His scholastic standing is very high this year and a little of that can be noticed in glancing over this section of the Ciarla. He was the Biography Editor and the Junior section was in his hands. By hurriedly scanning it you can form your own opinion of its worth. The class now closes, wishing him success and happiness in his job of “butchering.” Born January 19, 1905. Allentown Preparatory School. Stunt Day Committee (2). Weekly Staff (2). Ciarla Staff (3).

L OOK, gentle readers, this is “Line ’em up, Lantz,” the Sampson of the Junior Class, smokes cigarettes when others have them, hobnobs with millionaires at the country clubs during the summer. Looking at the accompanying picture, one would think him to be powerful enough to successfully hold supreme injunction over the Hindenburg line, but that is not his calling, for mere freshmen often disregard his directions. And Fritz has lived at so many places (not inferring that he had to leave), but his father is a Lutheran minister and he had to follow him, don’t you know; but any way we believe that they had fights in some of the places in which they lived. He can handle himself well and has shown his adeptness, in class football and in the Pagan-Minister football game, when he played for the ministers. Now when he came to Muhlenberg, he had a claim that he was a woman hater. We don’t believe it now. He doesn’t use the telephone for nothing. We don’t wish to give any secrets away or he might have the health officer at our heels. This chap is a good booster of Muhlenberg and its predecessors and nothing around the institution and its history are unknown to him — so he tells us. Ze French seer closes thusly: “If you want a good meal, stop in at the Superior Cafe for real home cooking. This is a dining house run by a college graduate and bears his name. It is run under the name of Lantz and Company. Could we believe it, but it is backed up by a twenty-year reputation and is known by all tourists and the entire populace of Tomako. We knew that Fritz was a staunch believer of good and wholesome food while at college, but little did we suspect that he would get into this walk of life. Sure enough, he has everything in the best of form in his cafe and no better victuals could be obtained anywhere. He caters especially to hungry and underfed college students.” Born December 28, 190+. Mechanicsburg High School. Alpha Tau Omega. Class Football, Manager (1). Scrub Week- iy (1). Class Football (2).

He has been with us but two years, having spent his first year at Albright. This might account for come of his gentleness, since we know that Albright is co-ed. But still waters run deep and Andy has shown us that this saying holds true in his case, for when he gets going he is a mean man to stop on the varsity football squad. That he is not immune to the opposite sex can be seen by going to the Traylor any Saturday night. Between that place and a little shop below the Rialto, Andy spends most of his time. Whatever time he has left he spends out at school. But do not get the wrong impression, for he is also a student of some merit. He is one of the few football men whose name does not grace the monthly honor roll ( ?). Then again, Andy is quite a traveler. He comes all the way to Allentown every day from Bethlehem. He is the exception which proves the rule that no good thing ever came out of Bethlehem. He also used to travel all the way to Lebanon to see one of nature’s fairest. We must qualify this statement a bit of course by admitting that that was in the days when he was a student at Albright. He tells us that now he wouldn’t walk a block after any girl. We wonder ! His athletic ability is of course Andy’s outstanding characteristic and we know that this ability will serve him well in future life. He is also an example of the old saying, “A sound mind in a sound body.” With this combination we know he is going to be a credit to Muh- lenberg and we wish him all the success in the world.

Page One Hundred One I 1 p 1 ? , FRANK ALLEN LEIDICH 736 THIRD ST., CATASAUQUA, PA. I EIDICH is the fair little boy who hails from Catasauqua. While we don’t know so much about him in his home town, we do know that when he hits Allentown things sure do fly. P ' rank is trying to tell us he is going to graduate this year. We are sorry to hear it, for that would mean a lot of extra w r ork for the rest of the boys. Everyone knows Frank is very popular with the women (?). If you could see his date book you would wonder how he ever finds time to do any studying. Studies keep some young men up till the wee small hours of the morning, but we can’t say the same thing holds true in Frank’s case. The cause of his Sleepless nights generally wears a skirt. Incidentally we might mention, though, that he has ability. He hopes some day to publish a book on women that will make the “Plastic Age” look like a bed-time story. During his four years at college he hopes to acquire enough religion to study for the ministry. We believe, however, that he would be better fitted for the “bar.” He has had quite a bit of experience in that direction. In school activities Frank does his share. What better proof do we need than that he is Athletic Editor of this Ciarla. “Call me sweetheart,” is what he says to her as he glides deftly over the dance floor with her in his arms. He claims it sounds more poetic than just plain Frank. He thinks he is in the seventh heaven of delight as he dances with her, but he isn’t, he is only on the top floor of the Traylor. Frank is also accomplished in other lines, so he tells us, but just what lines out- side of heavy lines, wash lines and trolley lines we do not know. One more thing we dare not omit, Frank smokes the most peculiar brand of cigarettes on the campus. They are called “Last one I got.” But with all these faults, or should we say virtues, we wish him success, and may all his troubles be small ones. Born October 21, 1900. Catasauqua High School.

L ET us tell you that it is difficult to say just what Howard Haines is most noted for. We could mention his “auburn” hair, his weak lungs, his ability as a movie critic, his fame as an athlete, or many other of his abilities and accomplishments. But after much cogitation, perspiration and execration we have decided to first mention his athletic abilities. Everyone knows of his fame in football, basketball and swimming, but few, if any, know of his track abilities. “Reds” has kept this something of a secret, but if anyone doubts his abilities along this line we wish to invite him to drop around to the track any night during the winter months about 2 A. M. to watch the Norristown flash do his stuff, hindered only by his B.V.D.’s and J. S. (see “What the Well Dressed Man Will Wear,” Beaunash), snowdrifts to the contrary notwithstanding. We can tell you, although you have probably gathered from this that our hero comes from Norristown. Quite the contrary, he spends more time going to Norris- town, and this is one of H. H.’s chief weaknesses. Every week he makes his pil- grimmage to the shrine of Venus. As a matter of fact, it is he who gives the L. V. T. it’s chief reason for running a car to Norristown every Friday. There is another vice that we hesitate to mention, but without which no biography of him would be complete. We do not know whether his maternal parent, his gospel slinger, or his mebbe exacted from him a vow against promiscuous vitu- peration, but the fact remains that somebody must have. If the rest of us took after him all of the bootleggers in Allentown would be selling pencils and shoe strings on Hamilton Street. So you see, Reds has made quite a name for hi mself in collegiate circles. He is a four year varsity man in football and basketball and is coach of the Freshman foot- ball and basketball teams. He is also the campus au- thority on radio and gives nightly concerts in his rooms to a select few. In Latin classes he is a great help to the Dean because his stentorian voice keeps the boys awake. He wears the Maltese Cross on the left side of his vest. Born May 12, 1899. Norristown High School. A. T. O. Varsity “M” man in Football, Basketball, and Track (1, 2, 3, 4). “M” Club. Republican.

S ITUATED in the southeastern part of Pennsylvania is a small, thriving metropolis by the name of Philadelphia. There is a man down there by the name of Gen. Butler, whose chief delight seems to be in driving from the city all the Scotch possible. We wonder if that is the reason that Bill came to Muhlenberg. We hardly believe so, since in stature Bill is comparable to the size of the city, small (?). Somehow or other, though, he seems to have overcome the General’s antipathy for Scotch, since we notice that he re-enacts frequently the return of the prodigal and gets away with it. But then, of course, the income tax also exempts married men. This paragraph is going to be about a line, not a wicked line or a clothes-line, but a line which held and which brought honor and glory to our dear Alma Mater in the past football season; a line in which Dougall played an important part. In other and more flowery language, Bill was an important man on our football team last fall. What little credit we can give him here we know is richly deserved. His stick- tuitiveness, his dependability are qualities which make a good football man ; they are also qualities which make a man successful in life. One more quality is quite noticeable in Bill. He is quite a handshaker, especially with “Doc” Wright. We do not know whether this is a good or a bad quality, but if he is aspiring to a seat in the department of education then we say, “Go to it Dougall.” By the way, Bill is also a track man, putting the shot for us when we try our mettle against our rivals. Thus we see that Bill is athletically inclined and making our conclusion from this diagnosis, it is self-evident that success will not be wanting in this man’s life. Let us hope, for the goo d of our Alma Mater, that if his children are anything like him he will send them here. Good luck to you, Mac. Born June 19, 1903. Philadelphia Central High School.

Page One Hundred Four AUGUST MARTIN ALLENTOWN, PA. M ARTIN is the Grand Old Dad of the class and he is a mighty fine fellow. Although he is older than most of us, he is a boy at heart, fond of fun and eager to join in with the bunch. Art is married and tells us that his son will some day be a student at Greater Muhlenberg. We only hope the son will be a chip from the ol’ block, for then there will be a “carrying on of the Augustian spirit.” Rushing from the Army, Gus decided he needed more education, so after trying several other schools, to recall his previous studies, he came to “Berg” to acquire a degree. Martin often refers to the treatment he received in the service; “I got inspira- tion, courage and initiative from Uncle Sam and am still getting my monthly check from him,” Gus said the other day. The old man is some athlete. This we learned in our freshman year, when Mar- tin played baseball for “Berg.” His flashy playing soon won him a host of admirers (freshman hero-worshippers). However, he didn’t stop with playing ball, and as you can’t keep a good man down, he was elected to Student Council, where the influ- ence of his mature wisdom resulted in making the Student Council reign tolerable. In every way Martin is a good student and, as he has taken summer school work, he will complete his college life this June, after a three year term. We are glad to know that he can begin to teach next fall, but we shall miss him in our work and play. Gus is right there when it comes to having parties, although he does object to rude table manners. If Gus can’t keep parties of his own he supplies for the other fellows. He is impartial in inviting his guests, which can be understood by the fact that his parties look much like a Pan-Hellenic Council meeting. These parties helped him to make many friends. No one leaves us with a more sincere wish that the future will hold a store of good things for him and his. Good luck to you Augustus ! Born November 11, 1894. Bethlehem Preparatory School.

M ETHINKS all of us know Franklin Edward Melick, the Bethlehem Sheik, but better known to the ladies as “Smiling Scrap.” He is taking the B.S. course, although we all think and try to persuade him into believing, that he would make a corkin’ good minister. One of Scrap’s main hobbies is to go auto riding with his friend Ziegie. One can often find them together in the latter’s Jewish Packard riding up and down Hamilton. Why in the Queen City, we wouldn’t venutre to say. But we do know that these two athletes are about as inseparable as Siamese twins. What? You didn’t know that Scrap was an athlete? Well, in his day he won his spurs in football over in the Holy City and even to this day they are talking of his sensational playing. Ever ask Scrap about his opinions of the courses offered at Muhlenberg? He tells us there is one in the curriculum which he would never take because he knows enough about it, and that’s Aesthetics. He has been a student of beauty and symmetry for several years, and is well versed in one phase of architecture in particular. Let us tell you that he is an expert when it comes to the subject of Gables (a gable : the upper part of a wall of a building, above the eaves, triangular in shape, con- forming to the slope of the roof). He has carried on an extensive research on this subject in the vicinity of Rittersville, and every afternoon, when on his way home, he stretches his neck to get a glimpse of M Gable. Indoor sports claim the “Sheik’s” attention in the form of roller-skating. Of course, should you ask him “Why?” he would say, “Grape-nuts”; but we know, — the skating ring is located at Rittersville, and although it may be night, Scrap assures us that he doesn’t neglect an opportunity to study Gables. Coming to studies, we can tell you with all degree of truthfulness that Scrap rates high and “knows his stuff.” We have come to the conclusion that the few evenings he remains at home he spends in preparing his work for the next few days. Kings may come and kings may go, but the Sheik remains, well liked by his classmates and by his superiors. Both groups know that he will make a success of what- 3 | ever he undertakes to do.

Bill is a firm egotist and is always talking about the South, Negroes, and Virginia. He is a hedonist and will always be found in that spirit. According to what I have said one might infer that Bill is a great hit with the fair sex. This is, however, not the case, as Bill believes that women are the downfall of man and that they are a luxury. Consequently this is the only man in the Class of ’26 who may truly be classed as a woman hater. As a student, Bill is a wonderful physicist, mathematician, biologist, chemist, and a great authority on the use of the slide rule. It is said that Bill can operate the slide rule so fast that he was compelled to place grease cups on either end to avoid friction. This young man was one of the stars in the Pagan-Minister football game. It would have been possible for him to play a lot better but he fell off a chair in his room the week before and consequently his whole constitution was jolted. Bill is more or less fortunate in life, through his stature being able to sense trouble before any one else. We hope he will soon stop growing as we are not able to realize what the outcome of this over-growth will mean. Bill is following in the footsteps of his father and brother, mainly the study of medicine as a profession, and we wish him good luck in whatever he may undertake, as we are certain that he will make good. Before Bills starts on his last lap of college he wants to widen his experiences and bring new ideas back to Virginia by taking an extended tour of the western states. After he has done this, one might be able to convince him that Virginia is not the only place that God made perfect. We might say that Virginia does not produce any eminent chemists, at least Professor Kistler does not think so. But just the same, Bill, we wish you success. Born July 4, 1905.

N EELY’S chief sport is playing touch football in the quadrangle. Gangway, boys, here he comes tearing through the foe, the ball carressingly tucked under his arm, bis hair streaming, the fire in his eyes warning all to escape to one side. His boyish love for enthusiastic sports is well expressed, as after the game he exults, “Some fight, boys; that was a real game.” Engaged in his studies he becomes as valiant as the heroes whom he ponders over. Have you ever seen him at three in the morning, amid the silence of dawn poring over the pages of his immense Greek lexicon? Carefully he works out the words of Aeschylus, which might be well applied to him, “T he wise man is what fools but seem to be.” Enthused “in high virtues bold” is he in all aspects of college life. He is fore- most in all the finest activities of college. In the Y. M. C. A. cabinet he works for the betterment of our religious life; and in the Weekly he makes his appeal directly to the students in his editorials. Truly Justice shall call him brother. Lately we notice Jerry frequently going home. We wonder who “she” is? We do know that now all is lost. “She” surely must be some girl to equal him. We wish him the greatest success in life, which we know he will achieve. Years have past since Neely’s graduation from Muhlenberg and we can see him in charge of one of the largest pastorates in New T ork City, with three children and “the” girl. The oldest boy has matriculated at Muhlenberg University to fol- low his father’s life work. T he opposite sex seemed to be of no particular con- cern to Jerry until lately we have been informed of his weekly visits to Union Street, where he and a fair young dame spend countless hours enjoying radio concerts. We all know that Jerry is a “plugger” and when it comes to arguments — woe, woe ! Alas, alas ! We all wish you success, and feel confident that your noble exertions will be crowned with the glorious halo of triumph and reward. So long, Jerry. Born September 6, 1903.

T ) ESERVE your interest, dear reader, for this anthropoid of the species homo sapiens with the pleasing physiognomy is no other than Mr. Emmett B. Reinbold. Eagerly we tell you that this young man may be termed homocentric as he is fol- lowing in the same way and preparing for the vocation of medicine, as a great number of his classmates are. In the case of his brilliancy in polytechnics he will no doubt be a wonderful success. Now as far as the fair sex are concerned, we realize that Emmett is a mean stepper. He has made the acquaintance of a fair young damsel who lives in the western part of Allentown and through personal contact the writer knows that Emmett must certainly have made quite an impression. He is quite an artist on the dance floor and is by no means a ty ro. Bold he is but, putting everything aside, we know that our friend will make good and that it will not be long before he will join the benedicts, and have a family of sprawling children like every one else? Well, Dorothy will make a fine wife and we hope that she will not bring Emmett under the classification of Henpecked Husbands. It has been a great inconvenience for our friend Emmett to miss the last “M” car and also the “Bus”; but this great burden has been somewhat overcome. Did you ever see a Ford coupe standing at Twenty-third and Chew Streets with one fellow and one sitting there and planning dates for the coming week. Well this other person was none other than “Leanna Drumstein,” his room-mate. Now can you thing of anything but “suc- cess” if two fellows of the same type travel together?

Do not miscon- strue my meaning, however, and think that all Philadelphians are like him. Oh, no! T he city has its reputation to maintain. But, seriously for a moment, John is really a nice hoy and were all of Philadelphia’s citizens like him, there would be no need for men like Gen. Butler. John believes in practicing the spirit of his town, the spirit of brotherly love. This is much in evidence at a certain little house down the hill near the college. Not a bad quality either. John is one of the quieter boys around the campus. T herefore this little article I believe cannot do him full justice. This reservedness on his part, though, will be a valuable asset to him in his chosen career of business. John evidently believes in the old adage that speech is silver but silence is golden. I almost forgot to mention that John is also an athlete. T his unassuming chap came here in his freshman year and made the varsity baseball team without much ado. He also plays football, having made the varsity squad in his third year. John has followed the examples of some of his dear brothers in gaining employment on the famous Toonerville trolley line. Whether he has interests in that girls’ college along the way, we wouldn’t venture to say. We do know that he has frequently been seen going to St. Paul’s and has made quite a hit with the female parishioners of t hat congregation. Sufficient has now been said to show you that John is a real he man and at this time the class of 1926 extends to him their best wishes for success in the future. Born January 3, 1905.

Page One Hundred Ten 40 OO CO CA oo Ip CLARENCE WALTER RHODA 53 7 N. TENTH ST., READING, PA. R USHING about the campus at the time of this writing is a middle-sized, intelli- gent-looking young man. He must seem important, because he is no other than the Editor-in-Chief of this Annual. H e is being exposed to a college course because he doesn’t like work, i.e., manual labor, and thus spends his time singing, get rich-quick pamphlets and women. When- ever some musical is in town, Dean lines himself up to acquire more musical knowledge. On the other hand, Clarry has some good qualities. He claims he is a woman hater, declaring that women are the root of all evil, but his theory does not quite line up with his practice, as he seems to be a heart-breaker, for when he writes three sheetsfull — judge for yourself of what — you know he is going to send it to Reading, but when you see him standing before the mirror applying his third coat of Mavis you know that he is going to visit some little lady of Allentown. Dignity oozes out of this gentleman. He insists that there is only one way of doing things, and that is the proper and correct way, — according to the book of eti- quette. Not that the Dean consults the book; he practices it. As an editor his ability is best revealed herein, and we are sure that has been maintained and extended. He is also quite an artist as a few of our departmental drawings will reveal to you. And, too, as a singer in this year’s Glee Club he has proved conclusively that he will be a howling success after he has finished with routine of three years of sober life at the Seminary. We leave him with a sincere hope that he gets a congregation that cannot appreciate music, for we feel it is there only that he can attain the peace of mind that is so necessary to the successful minister of the Gospel.

R OBINS are a foreteller of spring, and so in a sense is Robinson, for immediately after the snow has left, we find this chap “working out” for the track team. He is a second “Corps” Reinartz and has won many meets for Muhlenberg. However good Robby may be in track, most of us feel that he has taken up the wrong sport. Running may be all right hut it does not bring in the money the way boxing does, and Robby sure could pull in the dough if black eyes mean anything. We do not mean to say that Robby has black eyes, but if you want to know more about it, ask Buehler. Of girls “Robby” knows little, o- possibly we should say that “we know little of his girls.” We are “in the dark” as to the exact answer — whether he actually has women friends that we know nothing of or whether he has non. The only clue that we have to solve this is a letter every day bearing the Boston postmark on the enve- lope, and a few pictures above the fireplace. But we do know that he is an excellent student, making grades of A in all sub- jects. Whenever the class is at a loss as to the correct answer to a question, the Prof, turns to “Robby.” Whether the subject is one of the hard ones offered or whether it is only a lecture course, the same reasoning holds. In his previous year he was at Rutgers. Why he came here we do not know, but to say the least, we are glad that he made the change. There he “made” one of the largest fraternities. No one knows what profession Robinson intends to take up. We believe that he’ll try the teaching game, specializing in biological subjects, or else become an M. D. Son of old man Robinson, we know that he is a “chip of the old block,” and we send him forth hoping that some day he will be a successful “old block” himself. Born September 21, 190+.

Page One Hundred Twelve S AM is a big, broad-shouldered, six-footer who is well known to all freshmen day students. He is a member of the Student Council and also proctor of the “Ad” building. The freshmen surely accomplish fine work under this fellow’s rulership. Coming to Schaadt’s ability, we find Sam a “math” shark and figure juggler. However, we dare not forget to tell you that he is also a whale of a player when it comes to basketball, baseball and football. He seldom plays football, though, we wonder what the reason is. We don’t know — but when it comes to a game of bas- ketball, “Oh, boy.” The ball, the basket and Sam are a game in themselves. He also plays a fine brand of baseball, holding down the position of first base. Advice to the impudent freshmen be gives in the form of a syllogistic warning that runs like this: “If anyone is caught promulgating his irresitory cogitations or articulating his superficial sentimentalities or expatiating his opthalmological or lar- vngological observations, they must be aware of the fact that onto geny recapitulates phylogeny, and that ‘dibo threo suferrous latus’ is not a homogeneous compound but an exceedingly small microscopic organism, known to us by the common term applied to it, the ‘flee.’ ” And now, fellows, if you want to know what the above thesis on the flee is about, — ask the fellow who was honored with the First Chemical Prize, offered by the Chemistry Department. I ' his prize was given to the student making the greatest advance in chemistry for the year 1923-24. During vacation, Sam expects to work in some chemical laboratory. Did you ever see that Buick racing “special” on the campus. Well that special is a Coplay “Special.” The only thing the car needs is water in the radiator and gas in the tank and a record breaking driver and our world’s records would go to pieces. But to you, Sam, the class wishes luck in your future undertakings. Born February 21, 1906. Coplay High School. Northamp- ton High School. Phi Epsilon. Student Council. Class Basket- ball (1, 2).

Page One Hundred Thirteen S ENORS, senoritas and others, allow me to introduce to you one of the wonders of the class of ’26. He has traveled from the rock-bound coast of Maine to Cali- fornia, from Canada to Mexico, he has crossed the pond that separates the C T . S. from Europe, he has tasted the beer in Germany, seen the sights in Pompeii, and was sitting in the first row when the Follies Bergde made their debut in Paris, and after these jaunts, Schadty came hack to us the same, a strong evangelical. Captain Schaadt is a member of our famous Glee Club and sings a mean tenor ; he has helped this august body to make a name for itself among the fair young damsels of the various Lutheran congregations. In fact, if one would look into the matter, he would find that Warren has put Sinbad, the sailor, to shame, and instead of having a female in every port, Schadty has at least three. Honestly, Warren is fond of many things; some are women and his other likes are bees, Packards, hot dogs, soft ale and pretzels. Speaking of the women, there is no doubt but that Warren will make a wonderful husband, because he goes out early at night and comes in early in the morn. (Here’s a word to his lady friend, “He never eats a morning meal so that will make things easier still.”) At the present time Warren is the only boy that we know of that can drive to Norristown in less than an hour. A few of the fellows at college would like to know the reason for the haste when traveling in this direction. We wonder whether Warren will ever enlighten us? During the year the boy has been receiving an un- sual amount of mail. All of this is addressed to the frat and this makes us wonder whether the postman doesn’t know that he lives at 15 — Turner Street or whether Mother has intervened? Who knows? This boy is preparing to enter the field of business, but all of us fear that he is missing his calling. There is no doubt but that he should be a doctor because he already knows how to handle nurses and his descriptions of opera- tions are vivid and unique. We feel sure that no matter what Warren takes a hold of, whether it be a wife, a dog or horse, an automobile or a business, he will make a success of it. Born July 29, 1904. Allentown High School.

S AVE for being crazy on radio, late for classes and an All-Pagan guard, this speci- men of humanity is perfectly sane. Dan certainly is a great student, although he often happens to be a few minutes late, no matter what class or what time it is. But when he does come in — whew — you can hear the wind whistle. Should anyone come into the reception or the locker room and find a huge, overgrown, saxophone — shaped boiler (or fumigator) parked in a corner, and should the visitor also detect the odor of burnt cabbage or rope, he can almost instantly decide that Schlechter is somewhere behind that pipe. Coming to the subject of boosting, Ralph is a bearcat. He is as good a booster of Muhlenberg as there is. Listen to this one, it is a description of his den. The walls and ceiling are painted grey. The shades and curtains are dyed red, and the radiators are painted cardinal. Some joint, eh? Hearsay has it that there was a riot call to a residence near Eighth and Wash- ington Streets, due to a lot of Chinese cussing being heard in the neighborhood. Here is the secret. Schlechter was putting up a forty foot aerial pole, and it snapped off in the middle. ’Nuff sed. There are many things that “Speed” can do, but none of these is nearly as well done as his card playing. No, I don’t mean to infer that he is a gambler, but you should play with him in a game of “haas.” Between the pipe and himself he is invincible. Lechter — plus the letter N following the (LECH- TERN) — the dictionary defines as meaning the reading desk of a church. In just this way Schlechter has en- deared himself in our hearts and minds by being a read- ing desk of knowledge, for whenever we are in doubt as to some phase of biology or chemistry we go to him for support. The class knows definitely that this trait will never be lost and thus we all expect to hear that, in the course of several years, Ralph has become a pillar in his chosen profession, medicine.

V ISUALIZE this becoming, bashful young man seated behind the wheel of a Packard and one will readily realize why he is so popular. Or again, picture him repairing the tire on his Ford and you will see why he is built so manly. He is not compelled to take " Bill” Ritter’s Gvm Courses because Bill realizes that anyone that has a Ford to contend with receives enough muscular as well as oral development. One sees at once that Dan is no woman hater. It has been said that quite a few have been heart-broken through his neglectful courting. We hope that he will treat “Polly” a little better, especially as “she” is so talented and perhaps through her efforts may bring a better light to Dan on the study of Music and its mystic charms. Dan certainly is a great student, although it is rumored that he has bought more gloves in his three years of existence at Muhlenberg than any other person. Dan contemplates the study of chemistry as his life work and wishes to be a chemist. And as he treats that science with due seriousness we certainly believe that he will put the man who founded the “death ray” on the shelf. We trust that Dan will raise the ideals of the college and that through his brilliancy will bring the college to a level which will be known as one of the Big Three. Of course that is hoping for a whole lot, but we believe that Danny is a chip off the old block and we know his dad to be quite a success- ful business man. We almost forgot to mention an important incident which happened in Danny’s life and which made him a tee-total abstainer for life. When he first came to Muh- lenberg and started studying his chosen line of chemistry this is what happened one day, “Danny drank some water, But Danny drinks no more, For what he though was H..O Was H 2 S0 4 .” He has profited by the experience and claims he will make no more such blunders. Here’s to you, Danny. Born February 5, 1905. Fleetwood Fligh School. Phi Kappa Tau. Class Basketball (1, 2). Democrat. Lutheran. Chemistry. Page One Hundred Sixteen RAY EDWARD SCHUBERT 841 S. PIKE AVE, ALLENTOWN, PA. “Words, Words, Mere Words’ S AKES, alive, on my soul, this is the guy Ray E. Schubert, the greatest orator and arguer that ever lived. Just try and start something, Ray will be right there to defend himself. We are quite sure that Professor Bowman can testify to his ability along the aforesaid lines. Just the same, Schubert know y s when his mind is made up and no one can tell him that black is white. Combining pleasure with work, we find Ray a scholar, too ; he has made a good record at school. Schubert knows of no obstacles to stop any of his anticipations, whether at school or outside. He puts them all aside by some art which he alone possesses, and he usually gets by, too. That’s saying an earful. Hence Schubert intends teaching after he leaves school and with the amount of grit that he has, we know that he is going to make more than good in his chosen profession. Under no circumstances do we hope to hear that in his work will he allow a barrier to arise that he cannot cope with successfully. We cannot anticipate such an event at this time since we know that he has quite a bit of backbone. He even tries to cope with Dr. Wright and a man that does that sure does deserve the heavy corrugated underwear. More than that, he can also back up his arguments with physical force if need be. Ask Voight, he knows. This might lead the reader to think that Ray is quite aggressive. Well, he is in a way, but then again you would be surprised. He can be just as meek and gentle as the rest of us, especially when in the toils of some fair damsel. Of course this combination of meek- ness and aggressiveness is going to make “Bert” success- ful and the best wishes of ’26 go with him. Born April 2, 1904. Allentown High School.

S AY, behold this dashing specimen of “Homo Africanus” ; one of the intelligensia of Muhlenberg College. Some psychological lab. has a legacy on the brain of this infant prodigy and hopes by it to discover, some day, the lost secret of “intelligence.” Ever does he astound the faculty with his extraordinary mental powers and he can answer such momentous questions as, “Is it colder in the winter time or in the country ?” Even when our learned pedagogue, Dr. Wright, wishes to be enlightened he calls upon L. Nigger Seegers who bellows a stupid answer in return. But fancy this, in one week he gleaned three kopecs from Dr. Bowman. Yes boys, it is to laugh. Giving away a secret, they say as to his physical appearance, nature lost her mold when she framed his face. And would some audacious Apollo or Gangmede walk the earth today their beauty would be put to shame. Everyone interested in his social standing will say that he is nearing the top of the ladder. As yet he has not found any of the fairer sex to catch his eye. Rapidly he says that feminine pulchritude does not exist anywhere but in the Solid and Sunny South. However, we are almost certain that there are several broken hearts in Allentown on account of this dashing specimen of “Flaming Youth.” Seer Martinka closes this article with, “I recently made a trip across the Atlantic and chanced to pay a visit to the University of Berlin. Upon brousing through the university I paid a visit to the psychology department and behold, perched upon his throne at the front of the room was the learned L. Walter Seegers, with his shining dome and silver-rimmed spec- tacles. It is now twenty years since he was graduated from Muhlenberg and surely has learned something about the German language and Psychology. He was always interested in these two subjects and had mastered them soon after he left Muhlenberg. Students in the univer- sity were all interested in the Doctor and were never more pleased than when attending his classes. His classmates are looking forward to see him one of the leading philosophers of the world. Born February 19, 1905. Germantown High School. Alpha Tau Omega. Class Basketball (1, 2, 3).

No other than Richard Isaac Shelling. He is one great boy. As a student he certainly shines, for he is a combination of conscientiousness and greatness personified. Ever ask Dick about ? Well, we will have to tell you all. Just mention long walks after the sun has finished its labors, and there you have it. Yes, she is pretty nice, but someone said that Dick was very fickle. We thought women were only fickle. Dick’s chief job is calling at the house, — “hanging round,” as the saying goes. Like Professor Mueller, Shelling continually delves into the mysteries of “Rome in the Seventeenth Century” or “The Fall and Rise of the Papacy.” Lately this vers atile chap has taken a position at the Y. M. C. A., where he sells candies to the youngsters and practices his wiles, as a future teacher, upon them. In his spare time the business men of town find themselves handicapped when he explains, in his drawly voice but determined manner, the value of placing their ads in the 1926 Ciarla. He is the advertising manager. Just glance through the ad section and notice what he has accomplished. We believe that we have more ads than any previous Ciarla. Therefore what Dick has done speaks much louder than anything else we might say about him. Now this line is useless except to successfully com- pose our hero’s name. Shelling is not like that, but use- ful and energetic. Gaining respect each day, we find Richard to be one fine chap, who is liked by all who know him. His wil- lingness to help in any emergency has won for him many friends. Although Dick is quite young, we trust that he may learn much, so that the world will be benefited by a future great man.

J AKE might he called a salesman, since his face graces the selling side of our book store counter. But don’t be deceived, for he is only the general utility boy. He tells us, however, that he expects to be promoted next week. Seriously speaking, though, Jake is a wonderful asset to the college store. Without his presence the place would seem empty, not to imply that physically he is inclined to obesity but rather that he has become a fixture, the removal of which would make the store conspicuous by its absence. He is gifted in other ways also. To hear him in oratory class one can readily understand why he gets along so good with the ladies. His line sure is a wicked one. His Javorite topic is, “Why young girls leave home.” Coming from a town noted for its women, we understand why women is his favorite subject. Yes, Pottstown is where he hails from. Not that that is any credit to Pottstown, although Jake thinks it is. We believe that Jake has the makings of a man in him. Just glance over his record and you will notice that in addition to working in the store he is also a football man and manager of tennis, not to mention the fact that he is a second Dr. Rausch around school. Whenever you see Jake you see something being done for the better- ment of Muhlenberg College. His vacations and spare moments are utilized in work- ing on the new buildings or improving the campus. Work seems to be his middle name. In the Pagan-Minister game he played such wonderful football that he had the ministers swearing at him half of the time. Quite an enviable record, this, and we feel that when he gets out of school he will be just as successful as he has been in school. Good luck to you, Jake. Here’s your hat, what’s your hurry.

SPELYNG CUMBOLA, PA. T3EADIN’, writin’, and ’rithmetic. Nope, you’ re wrong. It’s Spelyng. We thought that we could get along without him, but when it came to a showdown we had to have Spelyng. But say, folks, isn’t that a h of a name for a sailor. Oh, yes, our friend was in the navy, but we thought the navy had enough difficult names without being reminded of Spelling. But like all good sailors, our friend can shake a mean foot, and, this is a tip to the girls who are looking for a good-looking, sociable chap, his office hours at the Winter Garden are Saturday night, 9 to 12. He hails from the anthracite coal belt, where they even had to call the coal hard. No reflections, ladies, for our friend is as gentle as the best. And studious! Say, just ask him how far ahead he is in any of his courses and you will be surprised to find that he is about two months ahead of the class. He certainly is an ambitious chap and we hope that when he gets out into life and is expounding all this pent-up knowl- edge to some blooming young women, he does not lose his head and his heart also, and drop from our Bachelor’s Club. Should he do this, in all probability the Spelyng list will become longer. However he is not only gifted scholastically but is quite an athlete also. Lately we have seen him throw- ing some mean hooks over the plate out on the baseball diamond. But this sport does not seem to give Spelyng quite enough exercise, for we often see him engaging in such strenuous pastimes as checkers and chess. There’s always a hot time in the old town when he and Pal miter get going. Sufficient has been said, we hope, to show you that Spelyng is a real he man. May he go forth from Muh- lenberg and do a real he man’s work. Pottsville High School. Keystone State Normal School. French Club (4). Mathematics Club (4). Democrat. Catholic. Teaching.

S URE, Boh first entered Muhlenberg in 1919, but discontinued his scholastic work and worked as a chauffeur until 1922, after which time he again joined our midst as a member of the class of ’26. Then during his interim of three years Bob was touring the countryside from Harrisburg to Hoboken as the verdant driver of an ice cream truck. And Bob has a great hobby for driving around in a large Pierce-Arrow car, more nearly resembling an overgrown Ford in the way it rattles. However, we could never understand why he never has any Misses in his car. Upon asking him he said that he has no time for the women. Quite so, but look at him on the dance floor and you can be sure to have a hard time convincing yourself that something must be wrong. Frankly, there is something wrong with Bob, we know; the cause we have been trying to learn for a long time but cannot seem to get there. He is either growing bald or making a good attempt to grow a few hair. For this reason we announce that he will offer a substantial reward to anyone who can prepare some tonic that will grow hair on his head. It sure must be hard. We would suggest a bottle of glue and a few handsful of hair, which he can easily get at any barber shop. Ever hear of the famous initials “R. L. S.”? Surely, why they are those of the famous writer, Robert Louis Stevenson, author of “Treasure Island.” It might be this coincidence that has made Bob one of the great treas- ures at Muhlenberg. I am sure he got a lot of inspira- tion for his work from “Treasure Island.” Robert is preparing to teach German and wants to take a trip to the old country after he is through here, in order to really get the language. We all hope he may make good and that he will be able to grow a good head of hair some day. Born December 31, 1901. Allentown High School. Delta Theta. Assistant Business Manager, Ciarla.

S EEING this young man, you know that he hails from the coal regions and, being fed up on coal-dust, is hot at all times. Perhaps he will be when he reads this. Then, however, though he is a quiet chap at college, he has quite a large acquaintance- ship with whom he corresponds. Ever, for instance, did you see him carry on a corre- spondence with Valentino? He does. This gives him his sheikish ideals. He tells us that he tries out all pointers given him by that well-known gentleman. Into his aspirations he must have centered marriage, for he bought a double bed when he came to college. T here is also a letter on file in which he asks a certain fair damsel when she is going to change her name. Now he is quite shifty with his feet as his record upon the track will show. But he is also shifty at other places than upon the track. He did good work upon the dance floor but — oh! — the result. The motto of his fraternity brothers has since been, “Remember Steinhauer.” Micky is very popular on the campus. Who wouldn’t be, with his attainments. As a member of Student Council, he was on the committee that saw to it that the Sophs wouldn’t treat the Frosh too rough. And then he also had charge of the Inter- Class Track Meet and that was a glorious success. While only a Frosh, Micky demonstrated to the world that he was a baseball catcher of no mean ability, and his end runs in the Pagan-Minister game will linger long in the minds of his classmates. However, he is good in other things, namely, his class work. He is a conscientious student when rocking in his favorite chair and it would be unfair to say that his good grades are a result of his companionship with his professors, for whom he always has a warm hand. We hope that he will be as successful in after life as he is in college. Born February 3, 1905. Wilkes-Barre High School. Phi Kappa Tau. Scrub Football (1, 2). Varsity Baseball (1, 2).

He will be nothing more than the animal of the wig, the ear trumpet, the glass eye, the porcelain teeth, the wooden leg, the silver windpipe, a creature that is mended, from the top to the bottom. Putting aside trivialities and becoming serious, Dick certainly is good looking (“?”), if you don ' t believe that ask the fair maiden that Dick has been taking to all of the college fraternity dances. One will readily see that Dick intends to take work for the advanced degree of Mr. and no doubt the P. A. degree will be awarded a few years later. Well, Dick, don’t take too much for granted. Dick is always a wide-awake boy, at least that is what I have been told by his fraternity brothers. He frequents the House quite a bit and spends quite a lot of time there catching up for what he missed during the night. Nevertheless, Dick is a fine fel- low and a peach of a friend. This, along with his scholastic ability, he having been an honor man at Prep, school shows us that Dick should not have any fears about facing the future. His ambition is to be a teacher, but he fails to tell us a teacher of what. Draw your own conclusions from this write-up. Not to put too great a strain on your thinking powers, however, we shall give you a hint. He tells us that when he starts handing out his line on mugging, necking, etc., Elynor Glynn’s rvorks will seem like Mother Goose Rhymes. As I feel that my fair readers, and otherwise, will agree with me to some extent and others will wish I never was born, l shall draw this little composition to a close. Ignotum per ignotius.

Page One Hundred Twenty-four WILLIAM HERRICK STEWART 26 N. FRANKLIN ST., ALLENTOWN, PA. S URF., this lad is a ladies’ man. It appears that he has been for years, and one would be tempted to say he is “a devil with the women.” Topping this, Bill has bought a flivver and now goes out with one of those Paul Revere girls — one who likes midnight rides. You can’t blame him or the girl(s) for that, now, can you? It’s being done! Eighteen years back something happened that is not a secret. T hrough that inci- dent Bill is clever with the pen and the brush. It is said that when he was a mere youngster he caught the pet cat (auntie’s) and, pulling out a hand full of hair from its tail, made a brush. He walked to the wood shed for this cruel deed ; he was severely reprimanded — in the good old-fashioned way . And this sad and impressing episode did not stifle the young man’s desire to dab in paints and ink, and for this we are surely grateful, for it is his work as Art Editor which makes this book so attractive. Recently Bill was unfortunate, having had a severe accident, but his gameness pulled him through and now he is with us in good form and scholastic standing. This statement is not quite correct, however, the fact is Bill had two accidents. He got married during the Christmas holidays and now enjoys the unique honor being the only man in our class to have subjected himself to such severe punishment. On the quiet, though, we have seen her and we believe that after all he was a pretty lucky chap. Of course it took grit to do it but what would a fellow be worth without a little back- bone. This pluck and zeal his classmates admire and they know that with these fine characteristics Bill will make a success of life after he leaves college. Born October 21, 1903. Allentown High School.

U PON meeting Mike you can tell that he comes from Allentown, that is he lives there. Nevertheless his home, the greater part at least, must be in Baltimore, since that is where the greater part of his heart is. The remainder is on Chew Street, Muhlenberg Manor. H e can be called nothing other than ambitious. This characteristic has won for him the famous name of “Lightning Mike.” One day, last summer, he worked so hard on a laboring job that his shovel contracted scoliosis and he was consequently discharged. With a zeal of this nature there is no wonder that he should like to com- plete his college career at the end of this term. Mike is a pretty good football player. If you don’t believe it, ask him. While only a Frosh he made that assertion and the center of the line couldn’t be pierced in that game. Only in the last year he made victory possible in the Pagan-Minister game by holding out his opponents while his comrades were tearing around the ends. There is only one real bad feature about Mike, and that is, he loves to recline to such a degree that it is all but impossible to see his head above his shoes. Indeed, many a Prof, asked him to bring his cot along, but Mike is too proud to leave them Mike’s dad would like him to take up the real estate business, but Mike prefers to be a chauffeur. He won his reputation by having enough nerve to attempt to com- pel a Muhlenberg trolley car to turn out for him while driving a Ford. He didn’t succeed, but he managed to quite completely surround his opponent. He is likewise ambitious in another field which I would not dare to mention now. But I dare say that a couple squares of leather which were displayed for some time told the tale. He has just now told us that he has decided finally to take his father’s advice and become a “realtor.” We wish him great success. Born October 26, 190+. Allentown High School. Phi Kappa Tau.

UTDENNIE” or “Louie” believes that Lancaster County is the best spot on earth. -1 — ■ f Perhaps he should if the frequent trips home and the mileage registered on a certain Hudson mean anything. We wonder whether he is normal or whether he is enveloped in a “Hood.” Then again he may be still “high” minded. Bennie has quite a reputation. He is our famous “Radio one” and is distinguished as a member of the D. C. S. Club. We also hear that he has quite a line about school, especially with the profs. No matter how cold or warm the day may be, you will always find Bennie devoid of gloves, because in his mind shaking hands with gloves on is a breach of etiquette. However, with all these handicaps, or should we say accomplishments, Bennie is quite a boy, taking an interest in most things about college and, as was said before, quite a reputation away from school. Besides fooling with radio sets, we also hear Bennie is quite a neat 7c collector. Keep right at it Bennie, probably you will be president some day of the Great Kutz- town (Flying Dutchman) Limited. Don’t be discouraged if not everything reg- isters for you. Bennie is really the most patriotic fellow in school. For wasn’t he born in a town named after the illustrious President Abraham Lincoln? To cinch his honor, though, his parents named him Benjamin Franklin, after another man who had a great place in the early Ameri- can history. We don’t know too much of Bennie’s personal af- fairs — you can’t blame him for keeping them to himself. However, we do know that when Bally was on the Glee Club, every time the club rendered a concert in Ephrata, Bennie was on hand with a machine and a few — sisters I suppose. But no, Bennie, you can’t fool us, we know that your weren’t only seeking to give your roomie some entertainment. Nor do we blame you. Born July 11, 1905. Ephrata High School. Phi Kappa Tau.

Z E, happy, handsome, Ziegenfus. No, he is no Frenchman, but all the women think that he is comely enough to be one. Tall of frame and broad of shoulder is he. Stature counts both in basketball and in courting, eh Ziegy? (This last bit of in- formation we gleaned from witnessing Roddy Valentino.) In the fall of 1923 Bill came to us from Albright, where he had successfully passed, both socially and scholastically, his freshman year. At that place he took work which we did not handle, making it necessary to take other subjects, upon arriving. Because of that we only met with him in several classes. This year we carry similar subjects and learn of his likes and dislikes. Every now and then we hear reports about “moonlight romances” that contain the name Wm. Chas. Ziegenfus as “the male of the species.” We all believe that Mellick could relate some interesting tales about a certain Polish girl, and a silk-mill worker. We know, without question, that if Bill’s Ford coupe could speak it would make those dates seem vivid. Never mind, Ziegy, we only live once. Garbed in a basketball suit he looks superb. But that superbness is far exceeded by the quality of the game that he plays. He does his “stuff” as center and we hope to see him on the varsity next year. Football and baseball are also in his held, but because of the first year ruling we never saw him in any but practice games. Enfus an’ las’ is he right, is “Virginia” Miller’s way of describing “Ziegy’s” qualifications. T he original of this write-up intends to take up teaching as his life work and with the gaining of success, as a goal, the class sends him into the world. Ziegy will do great things for Muhlenberg this year. Besides being the mainstay on the pitching staff he is a regular “Bustin’ Bambino” and should eclipse the home run record made by Babe Ruth. But you never know what he is liable to do when there is a good looking woman in the bleachers, he might walk off the diamond with the ball, as he did in one of the basketball games last winter.

It was a class of varied character and came from a greater expanse of country than any previous group. A lthough green as any, at the start, we soon had ourselves well in hand, and the Sophs had no terrors for us after the night of their banquet, when we so sturdily resisted their commands. Soon came the pole fight, when we quickly dragged the Sophs to our line. We then held the banner of ’27 safe, and lastly, on College Day, defeated the Sophs in the traditional football game 24-0, and also in the pushball game. That closed the scraps, although we once more crushed the Sophs after our banquet. During the remainder of the year, our progress though less warlike was just as brilliant. Our dance was the gayest college affair of the year. Our athletes were on every team and did much to gain Muhlenberg her superiority in the field. Many were the changes in our numbers when we came together for the first time as Sophomores, but our old spirit was not wanting. Our numbers were diminished, but that was all. Our organization was marvelously prompt. The first night of school we held our banquet, and succeeded completely in escaping the notice of the frosh, who had enough to do with their own affairs. The very next evening they held theirs, thinking to emulate us, but we were only too ready, as events proved, and very nearly paid the penalty for it. Again we entered into the contests with cheery valor; although outnumbered and hampered by new conditions. Yet we won the pole fight in two magnificent rushes, turning defeat into victory; the banner scrap came to us, Borden snatching the banner in three minutes at the most. Such things were never before heard of! The football game we won, by a much larger score than the year before. We lost all the new scraps as we were unprepared and outnumbered. Thus we did things only one class did before at Muhlenberg. We won all six traditional scraps, against mighty odds. Although the Frosh gained the use of the coveted stairs, there was no glory in it. We were held back in our desire for their education by the rulings against us, but we did our best while we could. And now, with our Sophomore days drawing to a close, we know we still can count on 27 s mighty spirit to carry us along. We have almost closed our underclass days of strife and contest, but in a few short months we shall return to the scenes of our achievement and glory as Juniors and Upperclassmen. Edward W. Althoff.

Page One Hundred Forty-one Jf Cf ARIA 1926 r | c cncy cyic tAC K p C ' ' ' w IN MEMORIAM l - HE short American visit of Mr. Yoshio Yano, M J a sophomore, from Japan, was terminated by death. Mr. amo, the son of a retired tea merchant and banker, had come to Muhlen- berg in order to prepare for business. He was studying for the Ph.B. degree here, after having spent three years at the University of Tokio. In the university he had learned enough English to converse with the students here. Last fall he was stricken ill and spent several months at the Sacred Heart Hospital, with a short interval in the Wetnersville Sanitarium. During his brief stay on the campus he won many friends. He was also a familiar figure on the tennis courts, for he was a lover of sports and a skillful player. The simple funeral services were held in the rooms of Undertaker Bur kholder and were conducted by Pro- fessor Fritsch, assisted by a Japanese student from Mt. Airy Seminary. He had two relatives in America, one living in Cali- fornia and another in New York. His parents are in Japan.

That would doubtless he a more happy fate than has fallen to our part. We stumble along life’s weary path, ever wishing for the end of our suffer- ings and looking to brighter days. Others may build lofty air castles in the heavens, but our day dreams are rudely interrupted by the gruff demand, “Match, frosh.” Can any mortal have so hard an oar to pull as the innocent freshman? We came to Muhlenberg a happy, joyful lot, but on our second night at school misfortune befell us. In the progress of our banquet all the members of the diabolical sophomore class took up the occupation of furniture moving. We must say that they were born to the profession. Several of us can give very good impressions of a neigh- boring institution for members of the opposite sex at “three o’clock in the morning.” Our football team came to grief at the hands of the enemy on College Day. The score was too sad to relate. Nothing however could dampen the spirits of the eleven who tried to uphold the honor and glory of ’28. In the pole fight we again suffered defeat. Lack of organization was the main factor in our loss of this traditional scrap. Later when the freshman’s natural enemv succeeded in gaining possession of the rag in the banner scrap hope despaired and many had visions of the basement entrance for the whole year. Speedy succor was afforded however. In coach Wood’s new system of contests we emerged the victors, and the tug of war alone stood between us and salvation. 1 he historic event took place at Cedar pool. Many of the enemy were noticed to be wearing bathing suits. Due credit must be given to them for their accurate foresight. It is needless to add that the bathing suits acquitted themselves nobly, many wearers taking their final dip of the season. Victory was ours and the rising sun of our class sent broad beams of light over the campus. Athletically our class is excellently represented. Nearly half of the varsity foot- ball team were freshmen. In cross country the greater part of the squad was recruited from the freshman ranks. Basketball found us at hand with several valuable men to present to the varsity. The same story was repeated in track and in baseball, where we were more than ably represented. Without the freshmen the debating team would be on the rocks. This field of activity finds us well up in the number of men on the team. At least half of the team are members of our class. Scholastically, our class has upheld Muhlenberg high rating quite well. Although not much is known concerning final grades it is safe to state that ’28 will not be found wanting when the time arrives to bestow honors for scholarship. The past successes greatly overshadow our shortcomings and we hope that in the future the class of 1928 may nobly uphold the traditions, the honor, and the glory of our beloved Alma Mater, our dear old Muhlenberg.

Page One Hundred Fifty-six EXTENSION Page One Hundred Fifty-seven School of Education HE modern idea in professional training is to present the theory and practice ■ ] at the same time. In the School of Education at Muhlenberg College pub- lie school teachers are able to study the theories of professional education at night and on Saturdays. These theories they are able to try out in their class rooms during the week and bring the results to the college class for further consideration. The School of Education presents the latest results in educational measurements and experimental education in order to assist the public school teachers to become educational engineers. The science of education has developed very rapidly and it demands that the public school teacher keep in touch with its progress. The teachers of the Lehigh Valley have long realized the progressive atmosphere at Muhlenberg and they have depended upon the local college to guide them into a better preparation for their work. The School of Education makes a study of the Fage One Hundred Fifty-eight individual needs of each teacher and tries to advise them accordingly. It is this attitude of personal service which has brought so ma ' ny teachers to the School of Education. This year’s classes have been conducted at the college on Saturdays, at the Cen- tral Grammar School in Allentown four nights each week, at Mauch Chunk on Mon- day night, at Coaldale on Tuesday night, at Hazleton on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, at East Greenville on Friday night, and at Quakertown on Monday night. It is estimated that about thirty-five thousand school children are receiving the influence of professional education through these classes. For the summer session of 1925 the following additions have been made to the faculty: Dr. C. M. Gordon, of Lafayette College; C. F. Seidel, Mildred Kemmerer, Charlotte Schmerker, M. Melissa Cook, Harry F. Grebey, Luther J. Kuhns, and Dr. H. F. Vieweg, of Cornell University. This year 37 teachers have completed their college courses in the School of Edu- cation and will be members of the regular graduation class in June, 1925. I he work of the School of Education is under the direction of Isaac Miles Wright, Pd.D., Professor of Philosophy and Pedagogy. Page One Hundred Fifty-nine La Roy Cleveland Best Neffs, Pa.

That a better man could not have been chosen for the job is plain to be seen from his record. He came here in 1917 through direct recommendation of New York Uni- versity. At that time there were but thirtv-seven enrolled in the extension department. At the pres- ent time, in less than eight years, that enrollment has increased to over a thousand, consisting mostly of teachers in the Lehigh Valley. Now there are branches established in Hellertown, Hazleton, Coaldale, Lansford and Pottsville. This achieve- ment is invincible proof of Dr. Wright’s keen in- terest in the development of modern education, and the growth of Muhlenberg influence. Florence E. Kohl Secretary, President’s Office Born at White Haven, Pa. White Haven High School. Official county stenographer for District Attorney for four years; notary public; private secretary to Congressman Gernerd for two years; member, Y. W. C. A., Quota Club, Delphian So- ciety, Red Cross. Republican. After taking care of Dr. Haas’ correspondence and questionaires, assisting Dr. Horn with the col- lege grades, students’ reports, the sob letters about the deficiencies of the various students, and the monthly honor roll, and helping Dr. Wright with the correspondence and records of the School of Education, all Miss Kohl has to do is to answer the thousand and one questions that come to the President’s office every day. The records of the office are in excellent condition, for even the per- manent record cards seem to feel a new dignity in the businesslike atmosphere of “the young lady in the President ' s office.” mssBsssm ssBSBsm, Page One Hundred Sixty-six Page One Hundred Sixty-seven Page One Hundred Sixty-eight Page One Hundred Sixty-nine OOC C C C C tC | v my M Walter W. Wood Coach of Athletics C OACH WOOD can be characterized as the best type of athletic coach available. He is active in all sports and directs the work along lines of his own experiences. Dur- ing the years 1916 and 1917 he played on the Championship University of Kansas team, and for two consecutive season was chosen as quarterback on the All-Con- ference Mythical eleven. After graduating from the University of Kansas, he coached sports at Shurtleff College and there developed several championship teams. In the fall of 1923, Coach Wood was singled out as the very man that Muhlenberg needed as an athletic leader, and he accepted the position. Coach Wood is a staunch advocate of fair play and clean sportsmanship. Since he came to us he has endeared himself to all Muhlenberg men, whether athletes or non-athletes. His interest in sport is genuine, not from the professional viewpoint but from the standpoint that sport acts as an incentive to achievement in other lines. He not only coaches sports that were already organized at Muhlenberg when he came, but is ever interested in introducing new contests, such as wrestling and intra-mural athletics. He is never satisfied, but always looks ahead to better conditions. This can be proved by the attitude he took last summer when he took a course in advanced coaching at the University of Illinois and later another course in coaching at Notre Dame. “Work " is his motto. He has ability to organize and to get the work done. Never has Muhlenberg engaged in so many minor sports as she has this year, all through the efforts of our coach. May his stay here prove profitable to himself and to a Greater Muhlenberg. Page One Hundred Seventy xxxx.x xx, cxxxxxj 1 | " ' « A W f, % w adi a mcM zxztj ' i xkxxx ' € xx go ATHLETICS HEN a boy comes to the American College, what is he coming for? When j I he comes to us, it seems that it is a wonderful act of faith and trust on the 1 part of the boy’s father when he turns his son over to an educational insti- tution. This boy is of his blood ; he sees in him new ambitions, new hopes ; new dreams of what he would have enjoyed ; new worlds to conquer, that he would have been glad of the opportunity to try. This boy has grown up, has reached that difficult of all ages, when he can neither be held nor let go; he must pass from a regulated life into one of his own. The father selected out of all our colleges and universities, yours, or mine. In the four years, while he is passing from youth to man- hood, the college is to take him and stamp upon him the imprint of its ideals; train him in intellect and train him in character. So when this boy comes into the department of Physical Education and Athletics, it is our great task to inform and discipline his mental and physical powers that he may possess a sharp edged and tempered w T eapon wherewith to confront life. He must be taught a code of honor that will govern his use of that weapon. And the great service of college sport is that it can be made to do much for the boy in teaching him that code. The great value of sport is sportsmanship. If we do not have that, we haven’t anything. We must lear ' n to fight with the best we can give; and yet never do the thing that would enable us to win, if it violates the code. If you or I make an engagement to play golf or tennis with a friend, we represent nothing but ourselves. If we do not train, if we do not practice, if we violate the code of sportsmanship, our actions reflect upon no one but ourselves and our character and our sportsmanship is formed, good or bad. But if with four or five others we are engaged in team play for a club or college against another, we are likely to feel, and the club or college is likely to feel, that we are no longer completely free agents, that we are in fact their representatives charged with the responsibility of representing them as well as we possibly can in sportsmanship and in skill, and that the college has a right to define the degree of skill and the quality of sportsmanship which shall represent it. Now we can preach the code of sportsmanship to these boys in the classroom, but we have learned that being told rvhat to do or how to do it is not the same thing as going out and taking off your coat and rolling up your sleeves and trying to do it. That is when you learn whether you have it in you or whether you have not ; and sport is the laboratory training that provides this. In this world there is no one who can succeed in everything all the time. The world was not designed on the principle that we should ; the great question, that life presents as a challenge to character, is, How does a man meet failure and defeat? Does he curl up and quit? Does he present an alibi? Does he whine? Does he attack the ability or the sportsmanship of his opponent? Or does he stand on his two Page One Hundred Seventy-one feet, with his chest out and a clear eye and with self respect say to his opponent, “Here is my hand, you were a better man than I was, that day, that time, but we will play again”? If college sport teaches these things it has become an educational influence of the highest type, capable of developing in these boys a fineness and a strength that not all the shocks of life may destroy or take away. Let us say, therefore, that those of us that have the honor and the privilege of participating, in some degree, do so with whole-hearted enthusiasm for the betterment of our future lives. Let us participate in some sport, let our motto be, “Sports for all.” Coach Wood. Page One Hundred Seventy-two GEORGE R. HOLSTROM Assistant Coach of Athletics Coach Holstrom, one of our own boys of but two years ago, is our capable and competent assistant to Coach Wood. This position was just created and George holds it to perfection. He proved his ability and knowledge of athletics while a participant in the sports at Muhlenberg, having be- come one of the Four Horsemen. After being graduated he spent a year at Allen- town Preparatory School as assistant coach, and there helped to develop teams which made a fine showing. George has charge of wrestling and track and has by no means made a failure of his task. Wrestling was a new sport but the ma- terial under his direction was well devel- oped. Track, which is a more established sport, had a flourishing season and is now on the verge of springing a few surprises. As for his ability in coaching the football line, nothing need be said, for the line he developed was the strongest and fastest that ever played for Muhlenberg. It stands out as a fitting eulogy of his good work. Muhlenberg is proud of her athletic coaches, and in Wood and Holstrom has a combination which would be difficult to replace. Let’s hope that this combination will not be broken for many years to come. HOWARD H. LEWIS Coach of Freshman Athletics Coach Lewis, one of our Seniors, was unable to contribute his athletic ability to the Muhlenberg Varsity, hut he did his bit in taking charge of the Freshman football squad. “Reds” is without a doubt an athlete of no mean ability and was missed greatly on both the varsity football and basketball teams. This knowledge of the game he did not hoard but imparted it most freely to the new foot- ball men. The success of the Freshman team easily explains and describes his ability. “Reds” is preparing to enter the coaching world, and all that we can see in his future is success. lc rx c rv c-v rorx Cx p ' t A fHfc? I AkL % ' MXV M ' ' I I A v 1 1 C CS C C C lCSiCS CZ)l Y Z Y M The 1924 Football Season HE 1924 schedule was the most ambitious one that the Cardinal and Gray 1 had to face since football was established and proved to be no bigger bite than the Berg men could masticate. Out of the ten contests, seven found Muhlenberg on top, two others were considered the same as victories, and the only evesore was the Bucknell reverse. Football relations were resumed with Franklin and Marshall after a lapse of seven years and Mu hlenberg promptly avenged previous contests by trouncing their varsity 37-0. Albright was also again taken on after a lapse of two years and the same may be said of them, as the game ended in our favor with a score of 34-0. The season opened with East Stroudsburg Normal at Allentown on Saturday, September 20th. This proved an easy game for Muhlenberg and showed a splendid demonstration of what might be expected during the remainder of the season. Coach Wood used thirty-three men, and after many substitutions the scoring was constant. Muhlenberg was at all times on the offense and scored ten touchdowns, the final score being 67-0. Borrell showed the spectators a few tricks such as were never seen on the Muhlenberg Field. Nick’s speed and ability to plow through was the outstanding feature of the game. Dickert, another freshman, exhibited his possibilities as a perma- nent back. The game was well played throughout and gave Muhlenberg great confidence for a successful season. The Varsity showed a pleasing return to form in the second contest with Lafay- ette at Easton the following Saturday, September 27th. Lafayette’s well-oiled and smooth-running veteran eleven barely managed to smash through the Berg line for two touchdowns, winning 13-0 in a wonderful exhibition of the gridiron game. Lafayette scored in the first five minutes of the game, when Gebhard went across for a touchdown. Muhlenberg now tightened up on the defense and held the Maroon team until the first few minutes of the final quarter, when Gebhard went across for the second touchdown. The Cardinal and Gray showed splendid form in both defense and offense and Lafayette had its opportunity to meet Borrell. Nick was the talk of the entire game and exhibited his defensive ability, as well as the offensive ability he showed in the Stroudsburg game. Rice was the shining light on the line and cut off a lot of the Maroon plays through the line. As a whole the Berg offense Was better, averaging a five yard gain each rush, against Lafayette’s four yards. It was a hard game for the Bergmen to lose, as both teams were equally good on the defensive but Lafayette had the edge on line plunging and gaining around the ends. Albright proved an easy match, as the 34-0 score showed. During the first period Berg scored two touchdowns and one in each succeeding period. Tursi made an easy start by recovering a fumble and running across the goal for the first touchdown. In the first period Borrell was injured and was replaced by Funk, who also showed Page One Hundred Seventy-four lOOCOOO CXXX CXXXJCXJ ill -i c cy ' Ky c cncnooc p great ability in running the ball. Rice played his usual defensive game and was largely responsible that Albright made but one earned first down. Dickert was the most consistent ground gainer of the day and was always there when yardage was needed. The team showed that their defeat at the hands of Lafayette was rather a moral victory, for they had not lost one iota of spirit, but rather gained a great deal more. The coach used every man on the squad and still they could not be kept back. He thus showed the large crowd of spectators that no matter what happened he would always have enough fresh men to rely on, who could also carry the ball and that it was not just a one or two man team. Muhlenberg’s hopes of an undimmed season received a stunning blow when our Cardinal and Grey warriors went down to a sad defeat at the hands of the strong Bucknell team, succumbing to a 33-0 score. After brilliant showings against her previous opponents, Muhlenberg collapsed under the attack of Coach Moron’s pro- teges. Berg’s eleven was not the same team that overwhelmed Albright and terrorized Lafayette. The snap and fight was lacking and even the famous forward pass attack failed to materialize. Frequent fumbles and interecepted passes cost the Bergmen con- siderable ground and several scores, and even Slemmer was tied in his kicking. How- ever, at times the Berg backs opened up attacks which threw momentary scares into the Bucknellian hosts. The Cardinal and Gray line-up was the same as in previous games, with the exception of Nick Borrell, who was still suffering from injuries received the week before. Had he been in the game there might have been a different story to tell. Most of the scoring was done in the first and third quarters when Blaisdell and the Wilsbach brothers did most of the damage. The following Saturday the Steel Back Warriors staged a perfect comeback when Gettysburg was the victim by the score of 25-0. The stain of last year’s 17-3 defeat was completely wiped out. Never had the Berg line held as it did on this gala day, Page One Hundred Seventy-five and never had the backs displayed their running ability to better advantage. So powerful was the drive of this wonderful machine that at no time did the visitors have a ghost of a show. In the first period Borrell went through centre for thirty-six yards and a touchdown. Conway scored the second touchdown in the same period. Borrell scored again in the second and fourth periods. The clever field running of Nick and the flashy running of Clvmer, coupled with Dickert’s able handling of the ball in aerial attacks were outstanding features. Clark and Rice again showed superior work on the line. Conway was the new field general and proved his cleverness in the varied attack of our team. How powerful our line was is shown by the fact that Gettysburg gained but 50 yards during the entire game. This did not mean anything, as she was also thrown for losses totaling 50 yards. The greatest victory of the season was none other than the smothering of Franklin and Marshall to the tune of 37-0. Resuming relations with this institution after a lapse of seven years, Muhlenberg now leads the series by a 5-3 score. Never in the history of Williamson held had a team so completely outclassed F. and M. The home team earned only one first down and 37 yards by rushing, while Muhlenberg, using straight football almost en tirely, ran up fourteen first downs for a total of three hun- dred and eighty yards by rushing. Conway was again the pilot and made no errors in his plan of attack. In the first period Borrell broke through right tackle and sprinted 50 yards for the first touchdown. Slemmer added three points in the second period by dropping back to the twenty yard line and booting a pretty field goal from a difficult angle. Black scored his first touchdown of the season by grabbing a sensational pass from Borrell. Conway and Borrell each added another touchdown in the third period and Willingham made it one more in the final period. This game broke Muh- lenberg’s jinx of losing games away from home. On Saturday, November 1, Lehigh received a severe jolt at Taylor Stadium when Muhlenberg held them to a 5-0 score. Never had a team so strongly resisted the Page One Hundred Seventy-six powerful offensive which Lehigh always develops and undoubtedly but for several un- fortunate breaks the Bergmen would have triumphed. Outweighed nearly twenty pounds to the man, the Cardinal and Grey completely outfought their heavier oppo- nents during the first half. It was not until the third period that Lehigh scored, and then only by an accident on our part. The ball, after being touched by Willingham, bounced behind the goal line and Willingham, in his effort to avoid tacklers, stepped out of bounds, thus giving Lehigh two undeserved points. The only other score was made in the fourth period, when Lewin drop-kicked a field goal from the twenty-five yard line. Nick Borrell, superb running back, played his usual stellar game. Although watched like a hawk, Nick managed to gain his share of yardage and his punting and passing were well-nigh perfect. The remarkable defense which Muhlenberg presented must be largely credited to Dickert and Borrell. The line, as usual, held like a stone wall and it would be difficult to pick any individual stars from there. This game can be considered a moral victory, since Lehigh did not cross our goal line. Berg galloped all over Biddle field the following Saturday, when Dickinson was handed a 36-0 defeat. Dickinson offered about as much resistance as a smoke screen to a tank and the game was clearly a one-sided affair. Borrell broke through in the first quarter for a twenty-eight yard run and the first touchdown. The second quarter added two more touchdowns and a field goal to our score. The other two quarters, one each. In this game Slemmer showed his ability by drop-kicking one from the forty yard line. Borrell and Dickert ran wild as usual and could always be depended upon for large gains. Conway was the general for this game and handled the team with rare ability. The line played a wonderful game and much credit must be handed Clark, who was fighting every minute of the game. This game was quite a surprise to the Carlislia ' ns, but not to us, as there was no room for a defeat in our victorious schedule. The Carlisle Indians learned a few pointers from this game and we hope that next year they will be able to give us more opposition. Page One Hundred Seventy-seven The powerful Berg football eleven continued its dizzy pace when it defeated Swarthmore 3-0 before a record crowd. This victory was featured and was responsible only to the trusty toe of Winnie Slemmer when he dropped the ball over the bar for a field goal from the 45 yard mark in the third quarter. Borrell was not able to get through on the offensive as he usually did, but it was not his marvelous offensive work as it was his wonderful, yes, magnificent defensive work that featured the game. Berg’s aerials were largely the cause of her triumph, for six passes were completed for 118 yards, while Swarthmore completed 3 for 14 yards. Tursi also showed his ability to pick the passes out of the air and it was largely through him that Berg got into a position for Slemmer to kick the winning goal. The usual jinx of a dedication was broken, as the ceremony of the cornerstone laying did not hoodoo Berg’s great team. With Slemmer booting 40 yards as he had been doing in the past few games, and Borrell and Dickert running and passing the way they did, directed by the brainy Conway behind a powerful line, Muhlenberg had good reasons for smiling the way she has been doing this year. Muhlenberg ran riot against Villanova in a wonderful 41-0 victory on their home field on Turkey Day, and gave them one of the worst beatings that has ever been handed to the Main Liners. Borrell was in high running gear all through the game and tore off four touchdowns after beautiful runs of 75 and 30 yards and passed with deadly accuracy. The Berg line smashed the running attacks which netted the Main Liners only 27 yards, while the ever-alert backs smeared every forward attempted. So strong was the defense that the Villanova team could not even register Page One Hundred Seventy-eight r x.} %„ r v cvkx eo c-o cx p pr VRLAJ92(|[ COCO C C ' iWC tC ' I y a first down. Tursi, playing his last game for Muhlenberg, showed his old-time form by scooping up several fumbles and intercepting forwards, one of which netted him a tally. Conway, who also played his last game, at all times drove the team at a high pace, directing the attack at the weak points of the opposing defense with uncanny precision. Dickert and Clymer did great work in the game by their line plunging and passing, while Slemmer helped the tally with his trusty toe. The line completely smothered Villanova’s feeble offense and defense and made large open- ings for our trusty backs. Thus ended the most successful season in the history of Muhlenberg. The most fitting eulogy on the successful season is the briefest. What more need we say than that Muhlenberg won the Class B championship of college football in Pennsylvania; that Muhle ' nberg had two men named for one of Walter Camp’s mythi- call all-elevens, namely, Clark and Conway; that three of her men were picked for the all-eastern team which played at the dedication of the new stadium in Ohio, Witt, Conway and Tursi. May our new captain, “Russ” Clark, lead us to greater things next year.

This man is better known as “Cowboy,” because he hails from the wild and wooly west. He played at left-halfback and came through almost as good as though he were riding one of his bronchos out west. He was only with us a half year and we hope he will be back again next year. William Dougal McAlpine Philadelphia, Pa. Two things to be remembered about this football season are the two times “Mac” received the ball on the kick-off and rah with it. Of course, being one of the biggest men on the line, you wouldn’t think he could run. Well he can’t. ' That’s what made the season so interesting. Walter W. Wood Small in body but big in spirit is our beloved Coach Wood. They call him “Punk” Wood, but the only respect in which the name fits is the way he makes our opponents feel when he sends our victorious teams against them. Nicholas Borrell - Grantwood, N. J. He is only a freshman but has the signal honor to be called the star of our team. Judge for yourself. He was third highest football scorer in the country and is said by one of the Philadelphia papers to be one of the best backfield men in the game, who plays a wonderful defensive game in addition to running with the ball, passing and kicking it to perfection. B. C. Donalson - -- -- -- - Wilmington, Del. This short, chunky fellow plays halfback and has made his letter the first year at school. His fame reached Muhlenberg before he did. He was one of the stellar players on the Perkiomen Prep team.

Small, but oh my, you should see him go through that line. “Paulie” is one of our dependable halfbacks and has well earned his varsity “M.” He came here with a good record from Allentown High and played on the Freshman team his first year. That he made the varsity team this year shows his ability. Earl E. Moll - Red Hill, Pa. This great big fellow scares his opponents by his overawing appearance. He was on the varsity squad during his first year but did not get in enough games to make his letter. This year, his sophomore year, he came through and helped to put Muhlen- berg on the map. George E. Holstrom - Superior, Wis. This man helped to give Muhlenberg the wonderful season she has had this year. He is none other than our line coach and his success with the men is due to his former experience, he being one of Muhlenberg’s former football stars. Harold Grove - Detroit, Mich. One of our big men who hails from the west. He plays on the line and is one of the reasons why Muhlenberg’s line has been called a stone wall. He has been with us three years now and has made his letter each year. What more can we say. Winfred T. Slemmer Philadelphia, Pa. This is none other than our wonderful drop kicker. We believe there is no other kicker in this part of the country who can equal his record. He made twenty-two out of twenty-three attempts for the goal. Some record ! He can always be depended on in a pinch, which is saying a whole lot. Page One Hundred Eighty-two |fv rxjrvxxx ' x W; cxxxxxj i i , K8K IjjJ " r i Wl A OI A I OH- 1 f ' , „.

H e is called “Terrible Turs,” and if you saw him carry the ball you would know the reason why. During the game he is on the receiving end of the passes and rarely misses any. He is one of our dignified seniors who has played football with us for four years. We will be sorry to see him go. Russel Clark ---------- Broomall, Pa. This fellow has been elected captain of next year’s team. What better testimony of his prowess than this. He has made his letter the three years he has been with us and we can safely say that finding a better tackle than he would be like hunting the proverbial needle in the haystack. James G. Conway - Dunmore, Pa. He is our snappy little quarterback. He always kept his wits about him and has been commended for the remarkable way in which he called signals. He is a senior, although he has been with us only three years. He came here from Stroudsburg Nor- mal with a wonderful record behind him and he has maintained that reputation here. Another good man gone this year. Edward J. Black - - - West New York, N. J. Eddie plays a speedy game at end, having been speedy enough to win his letter the two years he has been with us. It seems that New Jersey is gifted with football men, and good ones, too, for from there come, in addition to Black, our star, Borrell, and the “Terrible Turs.” A wonderful trio this. Archie J. Witt - - - Detroit, Mich. Last, but not least, a senior and the captain of our wonderful team. He started his career with us the year we beat Lehigh and he seems to have imbibed some of the wonderful spirit of that year, for he has carried it with him during his four years here and with it helped to put Muhlenberg on the map this year again. His worthy efforts were crowned with the captaincy. Especially on a muddy field he was one of the hardest men in the world to Capt. Witt stop when he got going with the ball, Page One Plundred Eighty-three Philips Rice Stout Winkler Dickert John K. Philips - -- -- -- -- Lebanon, Pa. John has a smile for everyone he meets and he carries that smile with him when he does battle with the enemy. That smile means business. He is a sophomore and has made his letter both years. His speedy build suggests the position which he plays, that of end. Orian Rice - -- -- -- -- Binghamton, N. Y. This tall fellow is one of the best centers we have ever had, and that is saying a lot for a man who has been with us only one year. He, however, was not green to the game, having come here from Syracuse L T niversity, where he played on the fresh- man team. H. C. Stout, Jr. - Wilmington, Del. We got in a good lot of freshmen this year. This is one of them and he has made his letter already. He was one of our dependable men, as is shown by the fact that he played in every game. He plays on the line at left tackle. Leland Winkler - - - Alton, 111. “Jerry,” as he is better known, plays right guard and has helped to bring home the bacon in many a game. He has been with us two years now, having played on the fresh- man team in his first year and making his letter on the varsity team this year. Edgar Dickert - -- -- -- -- Allentown, Pa. This lad, though only a freshman, has been one of the stars of the team. He played a wonderful game at halfback and we can truly say that no one has been more deserving of his letter than Dickert.

Page One Hundred Ninety I oocnoo z csicrtcs csi$ «d§ Review of 1924-’25 Season UHLENBERG’S 192+ and ’25 basketball team opened the season on De- cember 12th by defeating the Mount Airy Seminary by the score of 38-14. Flashy and swift playing characterized the entire contest and the outcome was at no time in doubt. On the 1 7th they then traveled to meet the expe- rienced Princeton team and threw quite a scare into the Tiger team and were leading at the end of the first half. However, the Tigers came back like an avalanche and soon had things their way for a 31-23 score when the final whistle blew. Having rested up over the Christmas holidays, the team came back and on the 9th of January defeated the strong Temple crew, and the following evening showed their superiority over the Drexel team. The Moravian team was no match for our team and were sent home with a story to tell of a 61-9 defeat. On the 1 7 th, when the Franklin and Marshall team came to Allentown, the team continued on their rampage and beat them by a 35-19 score. The team now lost Griggs but, undaunted, met Lehigh at Bethlehem, where they fought hard only to fall before the Brown and White by a 31-25 score. However on the 31st they could not be kept on the short end of the score by Swarthmore and handed them a 24-17 defeat. On February 4 they played a noteworth y game with Lafayette and returned the victors, having beaten them 30-19. They were, however, unable to stop Ursinus on February 7th and lost by a 27-21 score. Lafayette again appeared on the schedule on February 1 1 and the team showed that a team that could beat Lafayette once could do it again ; they won the second game by a close score of 21-20. Philadelphia Osteopathy proved to be an easy game after the first half and the final score read 39-21. Muhlenberg took a trip to the Greater City, and they were on the short end in both games with the Army and Steven’s Tech. The Villanova quintet set our team back in a third straight defeat by a score of 39-27. But on February 28 the team came back to form and for the second time of the season defeated Temple on the Y. M. C. A. court. The last game of the season was with Gettysburg at Allentown on March 5th and by the end of the game Gettysburg w ' as also numbered among our victims. This was the best game of the year and Berg’s team was on the long end of the score, win- ning by a 36-33 count. The enviable record established by this year’s team has fully eclipsed all previous records. Up to this season the team of 1914 w r as the high scorer and had the best season on record, scoring 544 point to their opponents’ 460 points. Our team of this year eclipsed them by scoring 549 points to their opponents’ 415. With these figures we must all agree that Muhlenberg has had the best and most successful basketball season in the history of the college. This can only be attributed to our good coach, Wood, and many praises are due him.

We were able to split even on the games, winning from Gettysburg, Temple, Stroudsburg and Delaware, and losing to Lehigh, Villanova, Fordham and Albright. The Swarthmore game ended in a tie at the end of the fifth inning, when the game was called on account of rain. The season opened with Gettysburg, at Allentown, in which Berg came through with a ninth inning rally and beat them by a 3-2 score. Gettysburg had been leading 2-1 and the teams were battling as far as the last half of the ninth inning, when Con- way popped out a single and stole second. Here “Irish Bull” Moll collided with the ball for a triple that chased Conway across the plate for the tying run. With the Gettysburg infield playing in, “Winnie” Slemmer dropped a Texas League single over their heads that scored the winning run. The following Saturday Muhlenberg traveled to Bethlehem to meet the strong Lehigh aggregation. Our men could not score until the seventh inning, but then the rally was almost too late and Berg went down to a 7-4 defeat. Page One Hundred Ninety-six IARLAI926 The Swarthmore game, which ended in a tie at the end of i.he fifth inning, when the game was called on account of rain, would most likely have been a victory for Muhlenberg, for we were on the rampage and the only thing that could stop us was the rain and it came just in the nick of time to save Swarthmore. Temple traveled to Allentown for our next game and at the end of the ninth inning found us in the lead with a score of 12-10. This game was featured by the hitting of both teams. The Villanova team had the edge on Berg and were leading us all through the game which ended by a 6-1 score. Weber pitched an exceptionally good game of ball that day and showed us that he was made of real stuff. Weber again showed good work on the mound when our team traveled to meet Fordham in the Greater City and were set back by a 9-3 score. Conway did great work with the stick, batting out the longest hit in the game. The Berg men were off that day and by overthrows and errors gave Fordham a good lead in the game. When we played Albright we were again set back by a 4-1 score, but we must give great credit to Weher on the mound, and especially for the excellent work done by Conway, Moll and Borden. Stroudsburg came to Allentown to bow to us in defeat by a 6-1 score. This was our last game at home and the team gave the crowd a real treat. Repass must be commended for his good work on the mound, allowing only four hits. The last game of the year, with Delaware, was played on a foreign field and ended the season with the proper touch, for when we came back to Allentown we could proudly display the scalp of our foes in Delaware and a 10-3 score. The game was a fast game all through and Muhlenberg had the edge on them all the time. We could just not be beaten that day. We owe all of this success to our Little Napoleon, Coach Wood, for we have never had a man out who knows baseba ll and the minuteness of its machinery as does our coach. The prospects for the coming season will be very bright, for only Flower, Repass, Weber, and Dorang will be missing. Then there is a large quantity of new material from which to build up even a better combination. PITCHING AVERAGES G. IP W. L. Pet. Ab. H. Hb bb so wp er H.

The men were greatly handicapped by the lack of a suitable place to train but by February 16th, the date of the first meet, were in fair shape. On that date, at Trenton, N. J., the team, composed of Steinhauer, Messinger, Slemmer and Robinson, ran second to Lafayette in a one mile match relay. On February 21st, Robinson and Slemmer running in the thousand yard races at the N. . A. C. games, won two second places. On March 4th the relay team, run- ning in Philadelphia, was again beaten, this time by U. of P. I he first outdoor meet of the year was the Penn Relays. Here the team, com- posed of Steinhauer, Druckenmiller, Slemmer and Robinson, competed in the Class B Middle Atlantic States Championship Race. Our men lost the race to Dickinson College by about a foot but finished with a 20 yard lead over Union. Dickinson’s time for the mile relay was 3 minutes, 30 seconds, which was 3 1-5 seconds faster than the former record. I his race was also 3 seconds faster than the Class A Middle Atlantic Race, in which Lafayette took first place. Page T wo Hundred W MM. ll ARIA. 19261 1 c c wowx wk j The first dual meet was held at Allentown on May 3rd with Gettysburg. The battlefield collegians, by their superiority in the field events, won the meet 64-48. In this meet Robinson set a new college record for the 220 yard dash, running it in 22 3-5 seconds, and the 440 yard dash in 51 seconds, also a new record. On May 10th the team went to Haverford only to be beaten by the count of 95-31. Here, as in the Gettysburg meet, it was the weakness in the field events that lost the meet for us. That day Steinhauer gave a great display of his ability, winning both the 100 and 220 yard dashes in easy fashion. Snyder also ran good, finishing first in the low hurdles and second on the 100. Robinson had easy running in the 440 and 880 yard dashes. In the C. P. A. A. meet, held at Harrisburg, the team made fourth place, being beaten by Dickinson, Gettysburg and Bucknell. Robinson set a new Conference mark in the 440 and 880 yard runs and Steinhauer made a first place in the 100 yard dash and second in the 220. The other men who scored in this meet were Druckenmiller in the mile, Schantz in the discus, Tursi in the javelin, and Griggs in the high jump. The next meet was the Middle Atlantic States Championship Meet, held at Delaware, and in which Muhlenberg was represented by Steinhauer, Robinson, and Druckenmiller. There was hard going for our men, as in two events they were opposed by men who later made the Olympic teams. Robinson, however, showed his usual form and ran the 440 yard dash in 50 2-5 seconds, which made a new Conference record and also a new college record. The last dual meet of the year was with Drexel at Allentown. This was one of the closest meets of the year, ending 65-61 in favor of Muhlenberg. The outstanding race of this meet was the 220 yard dash, in which Steinhauer equaled the 22 3-5 mark set earlier in the season by Robinson. This was the only dual meet that Muhlenberg won and then it was by a very close score. The season was a very remarkable one in the fact that all the men to make their letters in track were representing us for the first time, with the exception of Drucken- miller. Probably the most marked development was that displayed by Henry in the 2 mile run. Starting with no experience in track, Henry was able to place in every meet. Having achieved this much in his first year, we will be able to credit him with much greater things in years to come. This credit to the team is largely due to the wonderful coaching of Robinson, who showed his ability not only by his own records but also by training the other men to come through in fine shape. The letter men were: Robinson scoring 45 points Steinhauer scoring 40 points G. Snyder scoring 27 points Druckenmiller scoring 12 points Henry scoring 12 points Page Two Hundred One I G C C € C C ' Ky O0| Other men who scored for Muhlenberg were Black, Scha ' ntz, Tursi, Begel, Mac- Alpine, Griggs, Brokenshire, Barndt, Bernd, and Jones. Muhlenberg’s second indoor track season opened on January 27 at the Millrose games in New York. Here the relay team, composed of Steinhauer, Druckenmiller, Snyder, and Robinson, opposed the quartets of Manhattan College, N. Y. U., and Fordham. The experience of these teams in board floor running was too much for our men, who lost by a scant margin. Fordham won in the fast time of 3 :36. On January 30 the team journeyed to Trenton to oppose Lafayette in a one mile relay. This race proved the most thrilling of the entire meet and the result was in doubt until the very second the finish line was crossed. For the first time in history a Lafayette relay team went down in defeat before Muhlenberg, although we did win by only a matter of inches. In Philadelphia, on February 16, our boys were opposed by U. of P. and Lafay- ette. Penn won handily and the real race was between Lafayette and Muhlenberg. This time the tables were turned, Lafayette taking second place by some ten inches. Our victory over Lafayette made the season a successful one. With three of the four members of the team still at school and much new material to pick from, the prospects are bright for a banner season next winter. Although only one of the students in college, “Robbie” has shown such wonderful ability in the line of cinder path achievements that Muhlenberg felt that she could find no better coach by going out- side her own walls. Consequently “Robbie” was selected for the job and has been very successful, considering the small amount of material he has had to work with. We know that he is going to give us the best track team this season we ever had and he tells us on the quiet that five records will be broken this year. Let us hope his prediction comes true.

The Cross Country Team H AST fall, after a lapse of three years, cross country was resumed at Muh- lenberg. At first the team was badly handicapped by lack of veteran material, but it was inspiring indeed to note how well the new material rounded into shape. The team was picked during the last week of October and was composed of Henry, Druckenmiller, Huegel, Weidenmover, Gery, Garutto, Kancko and Rhoda. The first meet was with Lehigh at home. This race was won by Barber, of Lehigh, closely followed by Druckenmiller and Henry, of Muhlenberg. The remainder of the Lehigh men finished ahead of ours, however, and the final score stood 25-30, in favor of the visitors. On November 7 the team met defeat at the hands of Dickinson. Bailey, of Dickinson, was the individual winner in the time of 25 :20. Henry and Druckenmiller were the first Muhlenberg men to finish and the final score stood 26-29 against us. In the Middle Atlantics at Van Cortland Park, N. Y., on November 15, Muh- lenberg was represented by Henry, Druckenmiller, Huegel, Weidenmoyer, Gery and Garruto. Henry finished in tenth place and Huegel in fifteenth, Druckenmiller Page Two Hundred Three { co fx ror )Cv co xj r-o ] l ' Ci ARL A 1926J [ go ca coc cococooo ,i twenty-first, Weidenmoyer twenty-fourth, and Gery thirtieth, giving us a total of 100 points. The result of the meet was as follows: 1. Union - 46 points 4. Lehigh - 89 points 2. Rutgers - - - 49 points 5. Muhlenberg - - 100 points 3. Lafayette - - 78 points 6. N. Y. U. - - 103 points The final meet of the season was at Lancaster with F. and M. Huegel came in second and the final score was 25-30, in favor of F. and M. Much credit is due to the men on our team for coming out and giving their loyal support to this new project in the line of track activities. We know the experience will stand them in good stead so that they may come back next season better equipped than ever before to put Muhlenberg on the map in this line of athletics.

It was Coach Wood ' s idea to have those men who did not participate in any other winter sport exercise their bodies and keep fit by wrestling. Especially was he desirous of having the football men benefit by engaging in this sport. T hus in February, 1924, wrestling was first instituted. That year Franklin and Marshall was the only team met. They won, of course, benefiting by their experience and all the same giving our men a taste of real wrestling. This year, after football season closed, Coach Holstrom took charge of the wrestling squad. It worked hard under his tutelage and made great strides for the best. Our first match was with Franklin and Marshall, who beat us 18-5, Tursi being the only man to win a bout. Then came Penn State, the Intercollegiate Champs, who beat us 33-0. It was the best team in the East, but our men benefited by the experience they received in participating in this match. Then came the Army. Our men put up a good fight — perhaps the best of the season, but they triumphed — 25-0. Our next and last match was really the only match in which both teams were on the same plane. Lafayette had just introduced wrestling and our team gave them a good fight. However, we were obliged to give them the match with the count standing 18-13. The best man on the squad was undoubtedly Holland. He worked the hardest and received more benefit from the sport than any other man on the team. He was the only man to win his letter in wrestling. Holland was also the Lehigh Valley wrestling champion in the 125 lb. class for 1925 wrestling, against such schools as Lehigh and Lafayette.

Page Two Hundred Eighteen THE GLEE CLUB Q IGHT here let us admit that we know of nothing more suited to promote a sense of unity of purpose and feeling than the part singing of the glee club. It is this spirit of harmony which promotes the club from year to year. And we wish to say now, before the circuit is at a close, that this year’s program is far superior to that rendered other years. It is the glee club which gives the oppor- tunity at the formative period of youth for spontaneous utterance through the singing of the song itself, the whole song and nothing but the song; and to sing in harmony — harmony of spirit, tune, time, and rhythm — all this does not fail to impart a new impulse to self-expression and stimulate a sense of comradeship and true unity of thought and feeling which are necessary to individual progress and fundamental to good citizenship. The men on the club primarily possess a profound regard for the master works of musical literature, furthermore, they have a unity of thought, ambition, social as well as musical harmony, and an ardent desire and love for the masterpieces. Here is a short comment on this company, which will give you an excellent idea of its program: “No audience during the year enjoyed a better glee club program and reached such a high pitch of enthusiasm as did the one last evening when the Muhlenberg Glee Club appeared on their program. The audience realized that they were masters of the songs.” It took this group of thirty-two handsome young college lads, with fresh young voices, three months of practice consisting of forty-five rehearsals before they gave their first concert. This is natural as some of the boys have the culture of five generations of musicians before them in their person, while on the other hand some of the boys have the culture of five generations of cave man singing back of them. But these traits knit together by college lads bubbling over with the joy of living and the desire to please, soon put a finishing touch to all the singing, which was typified by snap, dash, and go. This seemed to be the effect produced when the club sang its opening number. There was music to please every taste, including humorous, classical, operatic and sen- timental music. The words of Prof. Simpson set to music by Prof. Marks gave a delightful added touch to the concert. Then there was a baritone solo, folk songs, piano solos, a skit, quartette, orchestra, violin solos, and a number of beautiful choruses sung in harmony. Mr. Zieber, the only four year veteran, leader of the club, president of the club, the venerable old female of last year, a true “Bouncer” of a lady, a portrayer of vaude- ville, song leader, etc., etc., with his beautiful baritone voice is an unusually gifted young man. He is an artist of intelligence and charm while on the stage. He earned for himself the name of a real “Glee Clubber” at Muhlenberg College. Paul Held, the accompanist, teacher of piano, piano soloist, has shown remarkable ability at the piano and is able and earnest in all his efforts. Paul is a real musician, as his qualities, combined with high intelligence in their use, make Mr. Held’s playing something to be listened to with keen enjoyment and satisfaction. Mr. Harry Filer, tenor soloist, although unable to travel with the club, deserves credit for his work on the club. He is commonly known as the “Caruso of Allentown” and deserves the name. A poor boy, but rich in character, and a true friend to all who know him. Charles Bachman, violinist and director of the orchestra, has supplied his audiences with music which at all times delighted them. Page Two Hundred Nineteen The glee club skit, “The Lost Silk Hat,” by Lord Dunsany, has equalled and surpasses the phenomenal success of last year’s dramatic number. The glee club is maintaining its policy of presenting only strictly classical material, instead of the amateur affairs which characterized the earlier clubs. The plot runs as follows: Hen- rich, the caller, loses his hat. He tries to get men to go into the house where he lost it, first calling on the poet, Herring. The laborer, Koch, and the clerk, Rhoda, are alike accosted. All three, however, are afraid that the caller is a thief and don’t want to obey him. Hillegass is the watchful policeman who hovers over the scene of action. Much credit is due Herring for the success of this play. He is not an imitator, but rather a creative character in which he takes part. " Loo much cannot be said of either Rhoda, Hillegass, Koch, or Henrich, who played their parts with much grace and show the necessary experience. “The Winter Song,” sung by the Cardinal and Gray Quartette, that old beloved song arranged especially for a group of college boys, is delightfully pleasing to all. Mr. Jarvis, baritone, worked under difficulties with this group, but finally won every audience to himself because of his spirit of conquest. The orchestra made a big hit this year, featuring Koch, Van Dusan, and Bach- man as soloists in playing classical jazz. Time and again Koch brought down the house with a rise of applause, playing a weird trumpet. Kniess played a mean “sax,” but never caused a riot. Riggs seconded with the alto saxophone. Van, the moving pianist, can play with the best of them and can give you an understanding that will almost teach you jazz is classical music. Van Dusan has the keys at his finger tips and plays them. Much credit is due Hillegass and Baum for the success of the orchestra. These boys made a hit in every toWn and were called back for encores. Coming back to the better things, things that will be remembered for one hundred years and more, things that stand the test of an age as did Butler’s dome ; it is after all the singing of the chorus that either makes the club a success or a failure. Without doubt the former word can be used in connection with this club, for a better chorus would be hard to find anywhere. When a noted director was asked how he became so successful in coaching a chorus, he just replied, “by concentration and repetition.” This glee club sang with a superb tone quality, and is almost absolutely accurate in tonation. This came only after about sixty rehearsals of the chorus. There is not one tenor or bass that did not have a few years’ experience in either choir or male chorus work before entering the club. With the training while in the club under the direction of Prof. Marks, wonderful progress in interpretation was made, which was all that was needed to make the club a success. It took this club to move and melt an audience. — Lowell Mason. Prof. Marks, the fine musician that he is, has developed his material to a degree of excellence which enables him to secure the admirable finish shown by his club. He is a pastmaster in interpreting good music. Dr. Brown, dramatic director, has attained a position where he is looked up to as a student of not only the contemporary drama but the old English plays as well. To these two men we owe the success of this year’s Musical Club of Muhlenberg College. Page Two Hundred Twenty W M. c c c c c cnc G4oj PROGRAM PART I “FAIR MUHLENBERG’’ Words by Stephen G. Simpson.

Brown ------- Dramatic Director Guerney F. Afflerbach Graduate Manager Page Two Hundred Twenty-two Review of Music at Muhlenberg X N striving to foster a Department of Music at Muhlenberg and retain a department of sterling quality we must have a body of musicians who pri- marily possess a profound regard for the master works of musical literature. There must, furthermore, be a unity of thought, ambition, social as well as musical harmony, and an ardent desire and love for the study of the great master- pieces, both classic and modern, so that their interpretations may always be met with a high sense of appreciation. Muhlenberg has a number of musicians who possess this sterling musical quality and an ardent desire to learn and promote music. Year after year music played its part at Muhlenberg until now much interest is displayed in every musical organization on the campus. More songs are being written, more musical organizations are being started, the department of music is prospering and now we have music to please every taste on the campus with plenty of variety. Muhlenberg College is now known throughout the East for its fine singing clubs. Each year the music has improved, this year many people saying that this is the best club, and we hope next year’s club will be equally praised. T his shows we are follow- ing the high standards of the better clubs. The most truthful music is the the most religious, and the most religious is most beautiful. The junior glee club or chapel choir is a great help in developing men for the glee club. This organization promotes the chapel singing. The college band has improved since last year. They played at all home games and Lehigh and Lafayette games. The band that went to Lehigh this year surpasses all other bands which ever played for Muhlenberg. The chapel music is very much better than previous years. The joy of living is at hand when two hundred young college boys in a group, with fresh, young, trained voices, sing those songs that only college lads know how to sing. “Music washes away from the soul the dust of every-day life.” — Thackery. Next year the Department of Music will stress more and more the fact that music is worth singing. Muhlenberg College is an art school, but next to divinity, no art is comparable to music. Music can noble hints impart. Engender fury, kindle love; With unsuspected eloquence can move and Manage all the man with secret art. — Addison. Page Two Hundred Twenty-three © The Muhlenberg Sextette HE Muhlenberg Sextette, composed of six singers and a pianist, last year accompanied Dr. Haas and Mr. Dreshman on various trips to different cities helping to put the “Greater Muhlenberg” campaign over the top. 1 he campaign netted over a million dollars, which goes toward the erection of many new and beautiful buildings. The sextette’s part of the program was to entertain the people who came to these meetings, with songs. 1 he sextette was composed of the following members, reading from left to right, standing: George Deisher, ’26; Harold J. Harris, ’25; Elmer Zieber, ’25; George W. Hendricks, ’26; and sitting, from left to right: Paul F. Held, ' 26; Malcolm Eichner, ’26, and Eugene Stowell, ’24. An instrumental quartette composed of the following members also assisted in the campaign: F. E. Preuss, Wm. Genszler, Carl Sipple, and Paul Bennyhoff. Page Two Hundred Twenty-four ORGANIZATIONS Page Two Hundred Twenty- five STUDENT BODY Usually every Friday morning at 11 o’clock, directly after the Chapel services, all the men of the college assemble in the Chapel for the transaction of any busi- ness which may arise from time to time. The Student Body elects its own officers and helps to maintain order in the college buildings and on the campus. It is the Student Body Organization which is the sponsor for all the smokers which are held during the football season in the college commons. Any down-town activities, such as parades , demonstrations, etc., which may be decided to be held, are also under the direct supervision of the Student Body Organization.

W» A6 »| STUDENT COUNCIL Practically every college and school has its Student Council. It is this body of men, represented by the four fraternities and the non-fraternity group, that govern the actions of the student body on the campus and elsewhere. This body works in close connection with the faculty and is authorized to try cases for various offenses or expel a man, the latter with the sanction and approval of the faculty. It is with the aid of this body of law makers that the “Frosh” is able to be introduced to the many formali- ties and mysteries of college life. All the various inter-class frolics, such as the pole fight and the banner scrap, are made possible by Student Council. Student Council is an ardent backer of the Sophomore Vigilance Committee, since it is Indirectly through this body that they are able to obtain a large amount of money that is used for the betterment and benefit of numerous needs of the student body and other organizations on the campus.

This paper, as its name implies, is published once a week by a staff of students elected from the entire student body. The paper keeps the students, alumni and friends informed as to the happenings on the campus. In competition with publications of the various eastern colleges the Weekly has showed up remarkably well, having won the grand prize offered by the Public Ledger two years ago. Letters of praise are being received from alumni in all parts of the world, showing the universal appeal it holds. Many a successful newspaperman has gotte ' n his start with the Weekly and we hope that the paper will keep up its good work. Editor-in-Chief ----- Frederick E. Preuss Senior Associates — J.

To be a man eligible for membership of this organization, one must have secured an “M” which has been awarded by the Athletic Association of the college. ' The meetings of the club are usually held at noon in the commons, and those who are members and have attended these meetings, will often recall the many pleas- ures and good times which they had. It is a new organization and its purpose is that of doing all that is possible in the promoting of clean athletics for “Greater Muh- lenberg College.” President Vice President Secretary Treasurer OFFICERS R.

They were very fortunate to secure as coach a former Allentown High School debater and captain of the University of Pennsylvania debate team, Prof. Arthur Gillespie. The first year of an activity usually shows no startling results. This is true of debating. Rut the start has been made, and the foundation for an eminently success- ful activity in the future. The team this year was composed of six Freshmen and two Juniors. These men will all be here next year and great expectations are entertained for the coming season. Muhlenberg can indeed be congratulated on the ability and htness of its debate coach. Here’s wishing him the best of luck. MEMBERS Wm. S. Hudders Walter S. Knittle John S.

A group of men very much interested in the subject of Mathematics in general. There is no problem which may arise that any one of the members will not attempt to solve and usually he is able to produce the correct result. The club has met at numerous times throughout the year, at the homes of the various members. It is at these meetings that problems of the most interesting nature are explained and given a large amount of discussion by those mathematically inclined persons who find so much pleasure in doing so. The organiza- tion has been under the sponsorship of Prof. Luther Deck, who is head of the mathe- matical department of the college. A very large part of the continuous success of the club has been due to his untiring efforts. OFFICERS President, Wm. Jacoby V . Pres., Floyd Palmitter Sec., Kermit H. Schmehl Der Deutsche Verein This club was organized by Prof. Preston A. Barba, head of the German depart- ment at Muhlenberg. It was organized during the 1923-24 session of the college. Members of the freshman class are not allowed to join the organization, which already has come to be known as an honor club to many of the alumni who have taken such a surprising amount of interest in its development. Those members of the two upper classes, as well as those of the sophomore class, must have received a quite satisfactory grade for the subject of German before they are eligible to membership. The meetings are held regularly every two weeks at the homes of the different members. At these meetings the speaking of German is done as much as possible. German songs are quite in vogue and speeches on various interesting and educational topics are given by different members throughout the year. After the meetings a typical German luncheon is usually served, much to the delight of all present. OFFICERS President, Carl S. Sipple Secretary. Paul Heist Treasurer, Robert L. Stauffer Le Cercle Francais This club was organized during the school year of 1923-24 under the influence and guidance of Prof. A. S. Corbiere, instructor in Spanish and French. The purpose of the club is to study the literature, customs and manners of the people of France. The meetings of the club are held every two weeks in the French room. Only students who do quite satisfactory class work are eligible for membership. A surprising amount of general information besides that gotten in the class room is given to the students at these meetings. Some very interesting and social hours have been enjoyed by the members of the club. Outsiders who may be interested at some time or other are always welcome to attend any of the meetings and are always warmly greeted by the students.

The Stars and the Moon were shining brightly. It was St ' earn’s Knight instead of Willys’ Knight but there was Willy s coming up the lane with the Gardener. She met him on the porch and her eyes were glistening like Presto-lites. The Moon was shining down on her Auburn hair and Lincoln could not have beheld a prettier girl in his time. Willys looked at her a while with eyes like Flint. “Let’s elope!” he said, “’V our father will never Grant his consent.” “No, he would put the National police on our Case and bring us back,” she said. “Weed Chain them fast, though,” he cut in. “Yes, but father is coming home in his Buick with Durant for supper from Ander- son, and he would pass us.” “No, we shall Dodge them. We will take the Lexington road Overland to Reo, thence to Oakland with the Rickenbacker Special.” His words stuck like a Pierce Arrow and his Rolls-Royce blood boiled like an overheated Chevrolet radiator. “Come on, then, let’s go. I have a beautiful house which overlooks the Hudson, which was built by the famous contractor Essex. We shall also have an old-fashioned Jordan house which I can well af Ford. We will turn over a new Paige there, and in a Good Year perhaps we shall have a little run-a-bout. Cadillac turned to hide her Peerless blush as they sped through the Knight in his Franklin. —Hendricks. A Packed Crowd Packed into the large oval was a very colorful crowd, jammed in with scarcely room to breathe. Row on row, the crushing mob was packed in, as someone said “Like sardines — like sardines.” And the funny part of it was, that they were sardines. Watch Yourselves, Fellows! There was once a man who gypped his way through grade school, high school and most of college. He copied the paper of a man next to him in the final quiz. The man he copied from got 95 and he got 40. He found out he had copied wrong. Moral: Always be careful to copy correctly. She lay in his arms and snuggled her head against his neck — a rush of emotion surged through her — tenderly he caressed her and she closed her eyes in delight. “Poor kitty, did I step on your tail?” Page Tivo Hundred Fifty-three icocvxs vjcsxvjfvjc ' oi icFCi ARL A 19261 j ( wxwwij V W ' ' ' ' For Sale at the Phi Kappa Tau House One Ford car with a piston ring, Two rear wheels, one front spring, Has no fenders, seat is a plank, Burns lots of gas, hard to crank, Carburetor busted half way through, Engine missing, hits on two, Now twelve years old, thirteen in spring, H as four wheel brakes ’n ev’rvthing.

A FRESHMAN’S GREAT TRIAL or Force of Habit A Freshman from up North, whose name we will keep a secret, was seated at the window, looking into the depths of the evening, very thoughtfully. His year was nearly up. In five minutes it would be midnight and the first day of Spring — that is, if the world didn’t come to an end before midnight. The grandfather’s clock on the mantel ticked away the remaining seconds — only four minutes now — Silent Bill (as we shall call him) sat as still and as straight as the moaning pines outside the dormitory window, his eyes riveted on the clock. His breath came in short gasps that expanded his B. V. D.’s to the ripping point and four buttons fell to the floor. Heist’s pony rears on him Great cords stood out on the Frosh’s fore- head and a tiny drop of ice-cold sweat trickled down from his brow and rolled over his ch eek, dropping off his chin. He appeared as though awaiting his execution, and he shivered despite the fact that the thermometer registered 85. The clock ticked heartlessly — four minutes. Three — he uttered a low groan and moistened his eyebrows. Two minutes!! Only one hun- dred and twenty ticks left. One!! the time- piece uttered a roar shattering the silence. Damn, cursus, a, um. The words were ut- tered more as a prayer of deliverance instead of a curse. The Frosh arose, oh, so slowly, ever so slowly, and with drooping shoulders and downcast eyes he put on his bathrobe, proceed- ed out the door and down the hallway to the showers. It was time for his Annual Spring Bath. — Hendricks. Page Two Hundred Fifty-six A Dreadful Time The youth’s brow was all puckered, the cold sweat was running down both sides of his face, his ears were wiggling and the skin on the back of his neck was shivering. He felt the cold blade at his throat, he had never been in this position before. Many things flashed through his mind ; he remembered his mother and thought how the tears would roll down her cheeks at this terrible catastrophe. He recalled his many youth- ful misdeeds and shuddered when he thought he wouldn’t be able to go through them any more. The tears began flowing, blinding him, and he could only see the person who held the k ' nife at his throat dimly. He felt the blade beginning to cut and tried to free himself, but two strong hands held him to the seat, keeping his head back. He began to feel blood trickle down his neck. “Say, be quiet, you big boob,” said his roommate. “Stand it like a man. " V ou are no longer a baby and if you think I am going to shave you with this dull butcher knife you will have to be still.” — Hendricks. A young gentleman, somewhat the worse for Volstead, approached a lamp post and accosted it something in this way: “Say, good evening, my dear shir, how are ya? What do you shay we go some place to eat together?” With that he put his arm around the post and started off. Around, around, and still around. Suddenly he pushed the post away from him and said angrily — “Shay, mister, where in hell are you takin’ me anyway?” Bill Genzler has just arrived from Kutztown on the trolley: Rhoda — “Say Bill, how did you cut your hands so?” Bui — ‘ O, I tried to manicure my h: Grandmother — “Billie, I wouldn’t slide down those steps if I were you.” Billie — “Wouldn’t ? Hell, you couldn’t.” After a close inspection of the dorms I come to the conclusion that two kinds of boys come to our college : Those who tack up naughty pictures and those whose folks come to visit them occa- sionally. Prof — “What is work?” Sleepy Stude — “Everything’s work.” Prof — “What! Everything? What about this table ?” Sleepy Stude — “Sure, that’s wood work.” ' on the car with a pocket knife.

He wasted 70 rounds of ammunition and didn’t even graze the mark. The others were more successful. The captain was sore and in a fit of anger said : “Ye gods, you can’t hit the side of a barn. Go off behind that barn and shoot yourself in the head.” The frosh obeyed implicitly. There was a lapse of a few minutes, then the report of the rifle was heard from the direction of the barn. The captain went white and sprinted widly toward it. Just as he reached it a powder-smoked face appeared around the corner. “Sorry, sir, but I missed again.” As It Happens In — Clarabee took a seat next to Billet. These two boys were both intellectual lovers of high-class music, especially Grand Opera. So far they had not missed a perform- ance. Tonight they were waiting eagerly for a beginning. The great John McCormack was about to sing! And who didn’t like to hear John sing, with such a wonderful voice? He was just starting to sing. How glad they were that they could afford to hear him ! Then followed a hush, and his voice came to them, superb — enticing — magnificent. The two were enthralled by wonderful tones. Suddenly something seemed to be wrong. The voice ceased. Did he forget his music or did his voice break. Then came a scratching noise. “Oh hell, darn that record anyway. Every time it gets there it scratches.” And he shut off the phonograph. “Oh, Billie, constrain yourself. Take it like a man!” — Hendricks. “What is the difference between a Junior and a worm?” “I dunno.” “There is no difference, chickens get them both in the end.” Sister — “Where are you going, dearie ?” Sis — “Out for a ride with Jack; do you think 1 need a coat?” Sister — “No, take a fan, though.” “See that guy that just went out?” The barber asked his next victim. “He’s the lowest scoundrel that ever lived.” “What did he ever do to you?” inquired the man. “He didn’t do anything to me, but he’s going around with my best girl for one year now. But I got even with him, though.” “How did you do it? Did you cut him with the razor?” “No, he wanted skin lotion on his face after the shave, but I put hair restorer on his face instead.” Schubert Expounding in Logic Class Page Two Hundred Fifty-nine W MM. ___ C| ARL 4i(}26 |! A New Invenshun (For Schadt’s Automobile) Dear Feature Editor: I wish to ax yewre opinion konsernin a invenshun which Fe have perfekted. It consists my dere editor namely and to wit of the following godoodles: whon oscillin- iastrator, two kewadles and whon wing-wang. Its works is imply to wit: The oscil- lianiastrator is attached to the wumpus what sticks out by the side of the hickey and to the oscilliniastrator is attached one of the kewadles, what in turn leads to the wing- wang and from the wing-wang the other kewadle leads to the driver. Now when a driver realizes he cannot avert an exident with a telephone pole, he pulls the kewadle what in turn works the wing-wang, what in turn works the oscilliniastrator what works the hickey what puts on the brake. It is very useful and decorative, too. Do you think the boys around Mule-en-Berg could use such an invenshun. Kindly post me and oblige, N. U. T., Nutty Avenue, Red Hill, Pa. Such an invention both Bauer and Schadt could use, as they could kiss their girls better as they are driving along and still be on the safe side of heaven. So see me while they last, the “Greatest Invention of the Age.” They sell at 10 cents a part, but for you boys they will be 5 cents.

Hirnisey Enjoying His Favorite Pastime Page Two Hundred Sixty-one Experiment No. 0,000,000,000,000,1 Object: Unknown. Apparatus: 250 CC flask. Materials: Patience, gasoline, dynamite, nitro-glycerine. (a) Pour about 25 cc. gasoline into beaker and drop a lighted match into it. This is to see if it will support combustian. Does it? How high did it raise you? Record this distance in millimeters or inches, as you prefer. Next take a lighted splinter and move it over an open vessel of gasoline and see how close y ou can come without igniting it. Record this distance in your note-book. (b) Note the physical properties of dynamite. Pound a small piece into a flat shape, place upon floor and jump upon it. Now get an ax from the instructor and chop the stick of dynamite into pieces one millimeter in length (no longer, as the results will be inaccurate). Now place these pieces in a 250 cc. flask and add 100 cc. of gasoline and 100 cc. of nitroglycerine. Move a lighted match around the bottom of the beaker to see that there is no leak in it. If you are still in Good Health boil the contents 15 minutes and then run residue through a sieve. After the blood has been mopped up and the remains of your fellow-workers have been taken to the morgue, clean up your desk and from your calculations and results calculate the amount of dynamite necessary to blow the left toe-nail off an earth-worm. Try this some time in your laboratory, it always gives accurate results. — Hendricks.

Page Two Hundred Sixty-two OUR HERITAGE FROM THE ANCIENTS We are indebted to Rome and Greece for superb literature. We owe to them our laws, many of our customs, and splendid art. But did you ever think how much of our modern athletics has come down from them? Furthermore, modern scientists are always sneering at the ancients. “What good, in dollars and cents, do we get from them?” they ask. Such heresy. Think of the mental training, and of our debt to them! Here is a modern example. Our beloved humor editor, one Hendricks, from Aineyville, striving with the intense zeal of his young heart to emulate Caesar’s Tenth Legion, was casting that body’s trusty weapon, the javelin, about our quadrangle (derivation?). Little did he think of what his sad fate was to be. How could he know what that sturdy emissary of modern science, realism, and cold dollars and cents, Achey, was to do? He knew that Achey was a foe of Roman antiquities, and that he opposed their survival on a ground of inefficiency in business, but how could he foresee that Achey, after an unsatisfactory dinner, harassed by Koch and Althof, should seize an opportunity to put himself in the way of his mightiest heave? Whizz! went the javelin, and Damn! went Achey. The javelin quivered in the ground not three feet from Achey’s new oxfords. In a moment this loyal son of Lancaster rushed out, seized the weapon, snapped its shaft and left the field, after making an angry face at poor, innocent, boyish Hendricks. Such are the foes of classic survivals and javelins. In the Eyes of a Frosh A Junior stood on a railroad track, A train was traveling fast.

It is not the babies that make baby contests so dangerous; it’s the mothers. If it were only a question of pleasing the tiny tots, as they are called, the judge could get around that easily enough. All he needs to do is to pat each one on the head and tickle each one on the sole of the foot, and then say to himself: “Ee’ny-Meeny-Miny-Mo” — and put the blue ribbon on at the “Mo.” No baby minds not getting a blue ribbon unless he gets the idea that it’s something to eat. And in that case the judge can square himself by thrusting an all-day sucker in the objector’s mouth. Mothers are not easy to bribe. Each one has a perfect baby — and admits it. A judge who differs with her has his work cut out for him. Standards for judging babies may vary according to the age of the contestant. At six months the baby should be able to look in the direction of unexpected noises (such as the pulling of a cork out of a pint bottle), and should he able to follow bright objects with its eyes. A silver dollar may be used as a bright object — if you can borrow one. At twelve months the baby should be able to stand unsupported by either its grandmother or a monthly allowance. At eighteen months it should be able to recognize frequent visitors, such as bill collectors and the iceman. At two years the baby should be able to speak a little slang and begin to tease for cigarettes (especially if it’s a girl). A Tragedy A rock — a saxophone — a dance — he plays. A head — an iron pipe — a crash — he lays. As It Happens at the Dorms Dearest Dad : Thank you for sending me that car- ton of cigarettes. The one that I smoked I enjoyed very much. Your loving son. So and So. Roy — Say, were you looking through the keyhole at your sister and me last night ? Ben — No, criss-cross my heart, I wasn’t! Mom was in the way. Page Two Hundred Sixty-four A Conversation Which Was Overheard Bell — “Well, Bill, if they insist on our taking her home tonight we will, but where are we going to spend the evening?” Bill — “Oh, that will go all right, and quickly, too.” Bell — “How do you figure that out?” Bill— “Well, we’ll take her home, and if the old man’s out we’ll undress her, of course, and naturally put her to bed, and hang around anyway till the old man gets back. You just leave it up to me.” Bell — “Yes and what then?” Bill — “Oh well, maybe we’ll get a tip for putting her to bed. But for pity’s sake don’t get near her feet; they say she’s the meanest old mule in the world. Last week Ben was kicked while cleaning the stable and he claims she is the first girl that ever threw him down.” Bell — “Well, let’s get busy then.” I tried her on the sofa, I tried her on the chair, I tried her on the window-sill, I tried her everywhere. I tried her on the lawn swing, I tried her on the grass, I tried most all positions, To take her photograph. He— “Are you keeping Lent, dear?” She— “Oh yes, I cut out all kinds of amusements, candies, dances, taxi rides, flowers — ” He — “That’s fine, can I have a date tomorrow night?” Classified “I see Drumheller is courting a pret- ty young postmistress now, but she doesn’t seem to think much of him.” “No, she looks upon him as second- class male matter, I suppose.” But Why Only Five Which are the five most important years of a girl’s life? MacAlpine — “The first five when she’s eighteen.” Stude — “Could you tell me in round numbers what I made in the test?” Prof. — “Why yes, zero.” George — “I have proposed to that girl no less than a dozen times.” Torch — “Take my advice and don’t propose again. Thirteen is unlucky, she might accept you.” His mother called him William, His sister called him Will, But when he went to Muhlenberg, With Father ’twas Bill, Bill, Bill!

Barnes See the Joke Two Days Afterwards Page Two Hundred Sixty-five THE IDEAL MOTORING GIRL (With apologies to Larry Boardman) They say that Diogenes had such trouble to find an honest man, but my goodness, he had a cinch toward nowadays, shux, boys, try and find an ideal girl to take motor- ing. Here’s an incident: — For years and years, even from the time of my little red automobile which was very classy in 1905, being painted red and having four wheels, I have searched and searched for an ideal partner. Well, I was optimistic and still am, only listen to my latest thrill. Ida, as I call her, could drive a car better than anybody else in this wide, round world of ours. So Ida said, “Why holy cats,” she said, “I could make Barney Oldfield look like a snail driver and Ralph de Palma like a freight engine fireman.” Well, Ida sure had a fast line and I tripped as usual. I didn’t know I fell. Somehow I am very kippish about anyone handling my swiss-cheese holes, besides, it’s very sensitive and I didn’t like to offend its feelings by letting another female woman drive it. Well, anyway, I thought, heck, the soldiers in the World War didn’t get anj worse bombardment than I am getting right here in the peaceful U. S. A. Ida unslung her big guns as she fell in the seat beside me. “Say, old dear, one thing I can certainly do is drive a car (with which she patted the old bus). My dad says I can drive better than most men. He always lets me drive our tub, because he says I use such good judgment.” “Why, you’re only going thirty, say, I bet I could get this old bus to hit the eighty mark. I’d certainly like to try it. Do you mind letting a good driver drive?” So on and on until I finally weakened. “Wouldn’t you like to take the wheel awhile,” I murmured. “Why, you mind-reading rascal, I’d just love to.” Well, the sweet little birdie started her stuff and first of all we missed a telegraph pole by one coat of paint. Then we slowed down to sixty for a corner — cursus, a, um — we made it. Hot damn !” Just then I saw a traffic cop drop, dying of heart failure as we shot by, passing a red semaphore. “Oh dear, look at that pretty little red hat that girl has on over there!” and thereupon we made a dive for the little red hat, missing it 1 — , 2 — , 2 — , 3 — . “Do you know, one thing I can ' t tolerate is when a driver don’t watch the road,” said Ida. I shook my head emphatically and just then I collected two fenders from a flivver parked along the road. “It’s getting rather late,” I finally managed to say. “The hospitals are only open until 4 P. M. Don’t you think it would be advisable to go home?” Ida looked at me with wistful eyes. “Oh, I’m not tired at all, are you? Why, I could drive like this forever.” Well, that was too much for me. I fainted. All I remember is that the next week I was again searching for the “Ideal Motoring Girl.” — Hendricks.

(The Last Meeting) Say, no woman on this earth could play me and get away with it. So when May called up and said that I should come over, I thought, here’s the chance to tell her to go to — — ? and then chuck her. Well, it’s quite a walk to her home and as I arrived there I had quite a peeve worked up. I walked up firmly to the door, rang the bell, resolved to be firm and strong for once in my young life — by jumping crickets, no woman can make an ass out of me. May came to the door dressed in that fascinating lavender gown trimmed in gold lace and oh, boy, she sure did look stunning, but whoa, there, boy, don’t weaken, so I walked right in, said “Hello!” to which she smiled a greeting, but I didn’t kiss her, no siree, I’d sure weake ' n if I did. “Why Bill, where have you been all these weeks? You’re not studying too hard, are you, dear? Did you pass your examina- tions all right?” “No, May, but I didn’t come over to talk that over though. Say, I’m good and sore at you.” “At me? Why, my grandmother’s cookies, why?” “Why you broke two dates last week so that you could go out with two other fellows. (Now was the time to say the climax and get out, so I proceeded) I’m through with you.” “Not going home mad though?” “Nope, but through with you.” “Well, suppose you let me drive you home in my new roadster, I have to go out that way anyhow.” There’s no sense in being a fathead, so I said I’d go along, just to be polite. Anyhow, what did it matter if she was goihg out that way and took me along? She knew I was through with her; hadn’t I told her so? “Well, let’s go!” she said, which we did, and soon the country was slipping by with rapid pace, however, I sat over as far on one side as I could. It was beautiful out and I was beginning to feel better. I wished I was home, though. “Say, isn’t that a cute roadhouse! Let’s go in and dance!” were the next words my speedy mamma said. “All right!” I said. I was willing to die like a man anyway. So far as I was concerned I was through with her, but I didn’t dislike, no, by jumping crickets I didn’t dislike her. So we went in and soon the orchestra began playing a very fascinating melody and the first thing that I knew I was shoving her around the floor, and believe me, she was some mean dancer. It was great as we danced about eight dances more, even if I was off her I might be a good sport to let her enjoy her last evening with me, then she’d remember me longer and think what a fool she was. After the eighth dance she looked at me and winked : “I’m so glad you’re not het up, Bill. I like to see you as you usually are.” “You won’t see me long, though,” I replied. “Yes I will, Bill.” Well, what do you know about that? Hot dam, but she must like me. Whoa, boy, pull up the strings and don’t weaken for such fish talk from a female woman. “Let’s eat, shall we, May?” were the next words I spoke. “Sure, let’s get some hash.” Page Two Hundred Sixty-seven W MM. |cx c- racx cxKX5r c%j is J I y M MC hm a vixydfr ► co ooc c )cnc co I S Well, they say a woman can reach a man better when his stomach’s full; I believe it to a certain degree, but I watched myself, though I felt better after I had treated her white and given her a good evening for the last time. She was a good scout not to cry anyway and then even her worst enemy would admit she was a knockout in that dress she wore, but as far as I was concerned I had made the tumble already. Soon we were out on the road again. Somehow the car stopped under a tall tree through which the moonlight was streaming. “It’s true that you’re tired of me, isn’t it, Bill ?” she said. “No, but I’m peeved because you broke those dates with me.” “I admit I broke the first one, Bill, but the second one I had forgotten when you asked me, then I phoned to you four times but you were out, so why blame me?” Well, I wouldn’t weaken, I thought, but there’s no harm in a debate. “I know, but you’ll have to admit that it’s sort of low-down.” “It was the first time, Bill, and I’m sorry. I hate to see a friendship like ours smash up for such a cause.” “I don’t care, I got mv honor and pride to consider — ” She sighed and threw in the clutch, saying, “Well, this love dream bubble was sure shot to h .” I knew very well she’d cry when she got home, but what the cat’s ankle did I care, I was a free man. Just then we drew up in front of my house. I turned to her and said, “Mary, I’d like to kiss you good-bye.” “All right, old top !” And I did, if I remember correctly. Anyway she was a game sport and was easily the best girl in town, and then what was the sense of getting peeved just because she went out with a ' nother oil can, no harm I guess I sat there meditating, when she stroked my hair very gently, oh, so gently “Well,” she said. Still I sat there, not knowing what to do. Then she put her arms around my neck and leaned her head on my shoulder. That was the last straw for me. “Let’s go for a ride,” she said. And if I remember right we did. The rest is censored. — Hendricks. Some Chicken?

After carefully covering his face with lather the tonsorial artist sat down and began to peruse a paper. “I say, bahbah,” queried his dudlets, “what are you aw, wating foh ?” “For your beard to grow, so I can shave you,” replied the heartless knight of the razor. A salesman sold a bill of goods to a merchant in a small town. They were returned as not satisfactory. The wholesale house undertook to collect anyway and drew a sight draft on the bank at the customer’s town. The bank returned the draft unpaid. Then the house wrote to the v illage postmaster and asked if the merchant was good for the amount of the bill. The letter was returned O. K.’d at the bottom. Next the postmaster was asked to put the bill in the hands of a local lawyer for collection. The answer received by the wholesalers ran as follows : “The undersigned is the merchant on whom you tried to palm off your worthless junk. The undersigned is also president of the bank that returned your draft. The undersigned is the postmaster to whom you wrote and also the lawyer whom you tried to get to collect your bill. And if the undersigned were not also the pastor of the local church, the undersigned would tell you to go straight to the devil!” “Gentlemen, I can’t lie about the horse: he is blind in one eye,” said the auctioneer. The horse was soon knocked down to a man who had been greatly struck by the auctioneer’s honesty, and after paying for the horse he said, “You were honest enough to tell me that this animal was blind in one eye. Is there any other defect?” “Yes, sir; there is. He is also blind in the other eye,” was the prompt reply. Lady (engaging nurse) — “Have you had any experience with children?” Applicant — “Yis, mum.

Page Tivo Hundred Seventy jf€lARtAfQ2 | c c ooc c c .c oo| ■ “When I was a boy,” said he, “it was the custom for the country people to work out their taxes by boarding the teacher. This meant that as part pay he was from time to time supplied from various quarters with fresh meat. “One day a boy breathlessly sought our instructor, exclaiming, “Say, teacher, my pa wants to know if you like pork?” “ ‘Indeed I do, Tim,’ answered the pedagogue. ‘Say to your father that there is nothing in the way of meat I like better than pork.’ “Some time passed, but there was no pork from Tim’s father. “‘How about that pork your father was to send me?’ the teacher asked the boy one day. “ ‘Oh,’ answered Tim, ‘the pig got well.’ ” An Ontario farmer caught a young woman doing a “September Morn” on his property and had her hailed before the county magistrate. “What’s the charge?” asked his honor. “Takin’ a bath in the spring, your wusship,” said the constable. The aged dispensor of justice consulted a dog-eared copy of the statues and buried himself in its pages for several minutes; then closing the legal tome and strok- ing his beard he said very solemnly, “The charge is dismissed and the miss is discharged. I find that she had just as much right to take a bath in the spring as in the fall.” THE CENSUS The Sences taker in our town being sick he deppertised me to go out for him one day, and as he was too ill to give me informashun how to perceed, I was consekently compelled to go it blind. Sitting down by the roadside I drawed up the follerin list of questions which I proposed to ax the peple I visited : Wat’s your age? Whar was you born? Air you marrid, and if so how do you like it? How many children hav you, and do they sufficiently resemble you as to proclood the possibility of their belongin to any of your nabers? Did you ever hav the measles, and if so how many? Have you a twin brother several years older than yourself? How many parents hav you? Do you read Watt’s Hims regler? Did you use boughten tobacker? Wat’s your fightin wate? Are you troubled with piles? How does your meersham culler? State whether you are blind, deaf, idiotic, or got the heaves? Do you know any Opry singers, and if so how much do they owe you? What’s the average of virtoo on the Ery Canawl ? If 4 barrils of Emptins pored onto a barn floor will kiver it, how many plase can Dion Bourcicalt write in a year? Is beans a regler diet in your family? How many chickens hav you, on foot and in the shell? Air you aware that Injianinny whiskey is used in New York shootin galrys instid of pistils, and that it shoots furthest? Was you ever at Niagry Falls? Was you ever in the Penitentiary?

Of course there is, tell me of any Senior who has been stepping out for three years who does not get a whole mail bag full every day. 8 :45 He strolls into the class-room and immediately after roll call streches out and dozes off.

A young fellow once offered to kiss a Quakeress. “Friend,” said she, “thee must not do it.” — “Oh by jove, but I must,” said the young man. “Well, friend, as thee hast sworn, thee may do it, but thee must not make a practice of it.” A good cigar is a good smoke, But a woman is only a woman. — «— What does a man think of when he thinks of nothing? Of a woman’s promises. The goodness of gold is tried by fire, The goodness of women by gold, And the goodness of men by the ordeal of women. We wonder how much time a girl spends fixing and crimping her hair when her best fellow comes to see her — and how much time it takes to put it up again after he’s gone? There’s an awful lot of time wasted in this life.

Page Three Hundred Seven ALLENTOWN DAIRY COMPANY (INCORPORATED 1915) Perfectly Pasteurized, Clean Milk SERVICE ALWAYS 1021 TURNER STREET Dedicated to George Hendricks, the guy who took the “G” out of Glove. At writing letters, Hen is right there, And especially when “She” has red hair. But he is careless, Throwing them away, When they contain things He did n’t wanta say. He wrote “Her” a letter And filled it with mush, He stuck it in his pocket With a lot of other slush. But he lost his nerve, And threw it away; “It’s too damned soft,” I heard him sav. This is what he wrote, judge for your self. My pen is poor, My ink is pale ; My love for you Shall never fail.

I’ve always slept on a mattress.” “Did William (meaning Bill) kiss you last night, Grace?” asked a Northamp- ton mother.” “Yes; there was a slight labial juxtaposition as Bill departed, mother dear; but I assure you it was onlv momentary and therefore innocuous.” In psychology class, after Dr. Wright had explained all about the action of fatigue. Johnnie Angst — “Well now Dr. what is fatigue?” Gus — “I’ll tell you, now, Evelyn is a bright girl, she has brains enough for two.” Bill — “Then she’s the very girl for you, Gus.” It is queer how a girl’s glorious auburn tresses that inspire your admiration will become merely red hair after you marry her. It is a sentimental fact that there are always four letters in the alphabet that are always in love. All men are good, — good for something or good for nothing. — ■« — ■■ — ■» — » — « — «« — ». — ». — .. — .» — »« — .. — .. — .. — ». — »■ — • — .. — .. — .. — .. — .. — .. — .. — .. — — — ■ — ■ — ■■ — ■■ — ■■ Page Three Hundred Ten J (d Ci ARLAI926I I ooco OAOOC CAOOC ' % COMPLIMENTS OF A FRIEND P«(7?

The same fellow who laughs at hypnotism and claims there ain’t no such thing will sit and hold a girl’s hand until he falls into a trance and asks her to marry him. Haws — “What have you under your hat, Miller?” Miller — “Nothing.” Haws — “I believe it.” Milly — “A man is an insignificant creature anyhow.” Billy — “Yes, but he never realizes it until he is attending his own wedding.” “When my alarm clock sounds,” said Beck, “I cuss a streak of woe; And wish that I were rich enough To tell it where to go.” Hudders — “Blessings come disguised.” Sotter — ‘Y ou bet. The homely girl needs no chaperon.” Pap — “Does Chips live on 8th street?” Mac — “No; he lives on his father who lives on 8th street.” An Emaus girl (looking up from a novel) — “Such a rotten author. I’m sure those two should have kissed each other long ago.” Page Three Hundred Twelve 1 College Printers THAT REALLY SERVE A SK the members ot the stafl of this book if we gave them proper co- operation and assistance in their work in every way possible, from the prepara- tion of manuscript to the finished book, we will abide by their verdict.

Even a fellow with a sunny disposition may be cast in the shade. Try to be half as good as you think others ought to be. We are quick to spy the evil conduct of others, l ime is a file that wears, yet makes no noise. Be loyal. The secret of keeping friends is not to give them away. J The people who never make mistakes live in a cemetery. ! We all make mistakes. That’s why there are erasers on pencils. I Stop waste. Especially the waste of useless talk. i Most men are optimists, in that they don’t care what happens as long as it doesn’t 1 happen to them. ! A skeptic is a fellow who doesn’t believe the good opinion he has of himself. J Men and roosters sometimes lose their heads by crowing too soon. I If a young man means half of what he says during courtship, the girl is lucky. 1 Men flatter merely to protect themselves from women who flirt. j Don’t knock!
