Hhe, Cietfla. 1927 Published by °)he Jurtioi ' Q jt CtyLuhlenbei ' g Colleg P6lume hhirtylive Dedication Dr, Howard Shimer Seip, A.B., A.M., D.D.S. Junior Class of 1927 is very proud to dedicate this Ciarla to a most M CA worthy, honorable and loyal supporter of Muhlenberg College. Not only J has he endeared himself to the hearts of those who have the “Muhlenberg Spirit” within them, but also to many people of Allentown and we may well say to not a few people of far distant cities. Dr. Howard Shimer Seip, the son of Reverend Theodore Lorenzo Seip, D.D., the third president of Muhlenberg College, and his wife Emma E. Seip, was horn at Bath, Pennsylvania, September 17. 186b. He received his early education in the Academic Department of Muhlenberg College. His education in later youth was received at Muhlenberg College, from which he graduated June 25, 1885. He di- vided the Sophomore botanical prize with D. E. Brunner. He was a member of the Euterpean Literary Society. Dr. Seip also took a course in the Dental Department of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and graduated in 1887 with the degree of D. D. S. Dr. Seip opened an office in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and in the course of a few years succeeded in establishing an excellent practice. He married Anna E. Anewalt of Allentown, Pennsylvania, April 15, 1890. To this union two children were born, namely, Theodore Anewalt Seip and Hilda Seip, now Mrs. Robert W. Trexler. The son, Theodore A. Seip, was a member of the class of 1918 in Muhlenberg until Christ- mas of his senior year, when ill health compelled him to relinquish his work. He had inherited his father’s and grandfather’s deep interest in Muhlenberg College in full measure and up to his last hour, Muhlenberg was always his favorite topic of con- versation. He died October 24, 1925, age 29 years. Dr. Seip was president of the Alumni Association of the Dental Department of the University of Pennsylvania, 1889-90. He read a paper entitled “Dental Associa- tion” before the Alumni Association of the University. He was elected president of the Susquehanna Dental Association May 1892. The other associations and connections which name Dr. Seip as their member reveal the high esteem in which he is held by a host of friends, for whom he in turn holds the same regard. Dr. Seip is a member of the Lehigh Valle) ' Dental Society ; the Pennsylvania State Dental Society and served as its president in 1914; the American Dental Association; the Allentown Dental Society, and an associate member of the First District Society of New York City. He is also a member of the Stomatological Club of Philadelphia, a member of the Art Club of Philadelphia, a member of the Livingston Club, Allentown, and a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church. Dr. Seip is best known by the students of Muhlenberg College as the president of the Athletic Association, which position he has held since its organization. He has been a member of the Board of Trustees of the same institution continually from the year 1904 until now. Therefore, the Class of 1927 of Muhlenberg College, deems it fitting and proper that this book be dedicated to such a true and loyal son of its Alma Mater. DR, HOWARD S. SEIP Editor-in-chief John C.

JOHN A. W. HAAS, D.D., LL.D. President ; Professor of Religion and Philosophy Born at Philadelphia, Pa., August 31, 1862. Prepared at Parochial School, Zion ' s Church and Protestant Episcopal Academy. A.B., University of Pennsylvania, 1884. Mt. Airy Theological Seminary, ordained 1887. Phi Beta Kappa. University of Leipsic, 1887-8S. D.D., Thiel College, 1902. Fourth President of Muhlenberg, 1904. LL.D., Uni- versity of Pennsylvania, 1914. The expression of Dr. Haa .’s personality has imbued Muhlenberg College with that spirit which was made for progress and the establishment of intellectual prestige. Muhlenberg is proud of the honor in having Dr. Haas as its intellectual and spiritual leader as well as its efficient administ rator. Our president ' s idea of a Greater Muhlenberg is rapidly approaching its culmination, caused largely by his arduous labors in the recent Million Dollar Drive. Through Dr. Haas’s efforts Muhlenberg has last year been admitted to the Approved list of American Univer- sities and has widened and strengthened its influence in its plan of the education of its share of American youth. The Author’s Club of London has recognized Dr. Haas’s eminence as a philosopher and author by making him a member. He is also a prominent leader of the Lutheran Church. His facile and prolific pen has recently given birth to a new book. Dr. Haas, through his vivid repartie in personal conversation with “the boys,’’ has a deep sympathetic understanding of student difficulties on the campus. He has won the con- fidence and affection of the student body. Recalcitrant students are swept into willing sub- mission bv his persuasive admonitions in the Chapel. Dr. Haas’s intimate association with the men of Muhlenberg has assisted in the formation of that morale so essential to the smooth working of an institution. May Dr. Haas remain with us long and continue to give renown to Muhlenberg College. Page Eighteen GEORGE T. ETTINGER, Ph.D., Litt. D. Dean ; Professor of the Latin Language acid Literature Born at Allentown, Pa., November 8, 1860. Prepared, at Private School and the Academic Department of Muhlenberg College. A.B., (Valedictorian), Muhlenberg Col- lege, 1883. Principal of the Academic Department. 1884-92. Ph.D v New York Uni- versity, 1891. President of the Muhlenberg Alumni Association. Professor of Latin and Pedagogy, 1898-1917. Professor of Latin since 1917. Litt.D., Muhlenberg College, 1920. Our beloved Dean, as he has been so aptly called, is the living emblem of what Muhlen- berg stands for. He exemplifies and upholds the worthiest traditions of the college. His long association with the institution, as a student a half century ago, and later as a professor, gives to his opinion the authority and prestige that is essential to the paternal guidance of the students. The Dean extends his influence particularly to the lower classmen, in the realization that they are the ones later to determine the student body policies. Dr. Ettinger’s principal scholastic interest is Latin and there has been many a race between the refractory student’s Latin Horse and the Dean’s Goat. The Dean is much in demand at college functions, where he enlivens the occasion with his Pennsylvania German stories and his aphorisms. May he influence another generation of Freshmen at Muhlenberg, and help to graduate many more seniors fortified with his concepts of learning. Page Nineteen Rev. WILLIAM WACKERNAGEL D.D., LL.D. Professor of Modern Language and Literature , Emeritus Born at Basel-on-the-Hhine, Switzer- land, September 25, 183S. Missionary in the Holy Land eleven years. Ordained a minister of the Lutheran Church, 1880. D.D., University of Pennsylvania, 1883. Acting President of Muhlenberg ' College, 1903-04. LL.D., Muhlenberg ' College, 1918. Dr. Wackernagel has the honor of being Muhlenberg’s first Professor Emeritus and truly deserved it after having taught for a long period of time. For several years Dr. Wackernagel was acting President of Muh- lenberg and after that Professor of modern languages. Dr. Wackernagel is one of the foremost scholars, and during his lifetime has won a name of great renown not only in this country but also in Europe. He has been a regular contributor to the Lutheran magazine and his articles are always very much in demand. It has been the custom of the freshman class to present Dr. Wackernagel every year at Thanksgiving with a large turkey and he returns his thanks in many different lan- guages. We hope that we will be able to continue this practice for many years. Dr. Wackernagel has missed very few chapels on the fall opening days and it is the wish of the class of ' 21 that he may be privi- leged to visit the college many times more. It is indeed a pleasure to speak to Dr. Wackernagel because his wide experience has enabled him to relate many interesting things. Dr. Wackernagel has done an inestimable amount of work for Muhlenberg and the college acknowledges with pride the great debt which it owes him. The class of 1927 sincerely wish him many more years of good health and happiness. Rev. JOHN A. BAUMAN Ph.D., D.D. Professor of Mathmatics, Emeritus Born at Easton, Pa., September 21, 1847. A.B. (Valedictorian) Muhlenberg College. 1873. A.M., Muhlenberg College, 18(6. Ordained a minister of the Lutheran Church, 1876. Professor of Latin, Ger- man, and Elnglish at Gustavus Adolphus College, 1881-85. Asa Packer Professor of Natural and Applied Science, Muhlen- berg College, 1885-99. Ph.D., Muhlen- berg College, 1894. Professor of Math- metics and Astronomy 1897 to 1924. D.D., Muhlenberg College, 1920. During the past two years the freshmen have often wondered just who was the gen- tleman of advanced years, kindly eyes and a good natured laugh who makes almost week- ly visits to the Ad. building and especially that part which is occupied by the library. He is always greeted very respectfully by the upperclassmen and members of the facul- ty and with a lone of great pride in their voices. It is no other than our old friend Dr. Bauman, old in years but not in mind and spirit. If asked just why he comes out here we will be informed that he is doing research work because it is one of Dr. Bauman’s prin- ciples to keep up with the age in all depart- ments, especially math. The class of 1927 was the last to enjoy working under him and he will never be for- gotten by any member of it who took his courses. Dr. Bauman is one of the foremost math- ematicians of today and can always be relied upon to show some new tricks in Geometry or Calculus. Muhlenberg owes much to Dr. Bauman and is proud to acknowledge the debt she owes him. The class of 1927 sincerely hopes that Dame Fortune will continue to smile on him so that he will be able to enjoy many more years of good health and continued success. Page Twenty I s Cl A ROBERT C. HORN, A.M., Litt. D. Professor of the Greek Language and Literature Born at Charleston, S. C.j September 12, 1881. Prepared at Charleston High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1900. Graduate work at Johns Hopkins Uni- versity, 1900-01. A.M., Muhlenberg Col- lege, 1903. Professor of the Greek Lang- uage and Literature since 1905. Alpha Tau Omega. Litt.D., Muhlenberg College, 1922. “Why the Greek anyhow?” This semi-an- nual inquiry will be answered when Dr. Horn returns from his Mediterranean trav- els. He is at present engaged in archeologi- cal research in Egypt and Greece. His ex- planations of the contributions of Greek life to modern civilization will create a lifetime interest in cultural activities. “Bobby” is assistant to Dr. Haas and as capable admintrator has insured the smooth working of the scholastic departments of the college. He was always a busy figjre in the Administration Building in his effort to per- form his duties. We regret his absence and eagerly look forward to the time when he will be with us again. Dr. Horn ' s specialty is Greek. He not only imparts a knowledge of the Greek lan- guage, but frequently draws vivid pictures of Greecian life and contrasts their civiliza- tion with ours. He always receives the best of attention because of his pleasing person- ality. His return, with all the additional in- formation he is now gathering, is awaited in the hope that we may once more benefit by his interesting discourses. 2 y F5- L. A Rev. ROBERT R. FRITSCH, A.M. Chaplain, Professor of Religion Born at Allentown, Pa., September 10, 1879. Prepared at Allentown High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1900. A.M., Muhlenberg College, 1903. A.M., Illinois Wesleyan University, 1907. In- structor of Greek, Muhlenberg College, 1907- 08. Instructor of Modern Languages, 1908- 15. Graduate Work, University of Pennsylvania, 1910-13. Instructor in Re- ligion and German. Ordained a minister of the Lutheran Church, 1915. Elected Professor of Religion, 1921. To Rev. Fritsch Muhlenberg owes much of its Christian atmosphere. Daily, as College Chaplain, he leads the students in divine worship to the glorification of their Alma Mater. As professor of Religion he instructs erring lower classmen, and illustrates to them the beneficience of a moral life. He also prepares students for Sunday School work by offering the Oliver ' s Teacher Train- ing Course. Professor Fritsch is actively and exten- sively engaged in religious work outside of the College and is pastor of St. Joseph’s Lutheran Church in East Allentown. He is constantly in demand as a speaker at relig- ious functions and has contributed largely to the growth of church work in and about Allentown. Professor Fritsch’s hobbies are gardening and radio, and as an accomplished musician often “tunes in " on the best music. Page Twenty-one HARRY D. BAILEY, A.M., D.S. Professor of Biology Born at Easton, Pa., January 14, 1881, Prepared at South Easton High School. A.B., Lafayette College, 1904. A.M., La- fayette College, 1909. Phi Beta Kappa. D.S., Muhlenberg College, 1923. Attended Biological Laboratory at Cold Springs Harbor, Long Island, in the summer of 1903. Appointed Instructor in Biology, Muhlenberg College, 1909. Elected Pro- fessor, 1910. Dr. Bailey has charge of the biological department at the College. He entertains a profound interest in the natural sciences and his enthusiasm is contagious to his students. He conducts an annual Botany trip thruout Lehigh County, and in conjunction with his classes studies the flora of the community. Dr. Bailey is chairman of the Faculty Committee on student activities and has al- ways worked for the best mutual interests of the faculty and the student body. He is constantly considerate of student activities. Dr. Bailey is inclined to tennis and chess as a relaxative from his arduous duties as Professor at the College and his other nu- merous activities. STEPHEN G. SIMPSON, A.M. Professor of English Born at Easton, Pa., May 4, 1874, Pre- pared at South Easton High School. A.B., Lafayette College, 1896. A.M., Lafayette College, 1898. Phi Beta Kappa. Summer Courses at Columbia University, 1903-04. Instructor in English, Muhlenberg Col- lege, lall-14. Elected Assistant Profes- sor, 1914. Elected Professor, 1921. Professor Simpson has been characteris- tically called “a friend to the senior and a razzer of the Frosh,” not however that either cannot be said of all classes. All freshmen make his early acquaintance in English I, who entertain “Teedy " with their variegated themes. Everyone comes under his quizzical looks when the library is one ' s objective for he is custodian of that storehouse of knowl- edge and dispenses choice morsels of litera- ture to those who are interested. Although Professor Simpson may be most- ly found hard at work in the Library, still he often enjoys a good game of quoits with the upperclassmen in the grove. And if you want to see a real pleasant smile, hand him a good cigar. Professor Simpson ' s forte is English and his understanding of life “as she is” soon convinces the students of the humor in much of it. “Teedy’s " special interest is contem- porary literature and his stick of poems, and witticisms are a delight to all who are privi- leged to hear them. Jage Twenty-two Rev. JOHN D. M. BROWN, A.M. Professor of English Born at Lebanon, Pa., December 2, 1883. Prepared at Lebanon High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1906. A.M., Columbia University, 1907. Ordained a minister in the Lutheran Church, 1910. Elected In- structor at Muhlenberg College, 1912. As- sistant Professor in 1915. Professor in 1920. Drama is Dr. Brown’s forte. The men who have never had the opportunity to en- joy his English Drama are missing one of the vital courses in College. Previous to the extension of the department of Romance Languages, he taught these subjects. At present he is engaged exclusively in the various phases of English literature. “Johnnie " has contributed materially to the growth of Muhlenberg by his unstinted efforts in developing the department of ora- tory, and has succeeded in placing Muhlen- berg in an enviable position in the Inter- Collegiate Oratorical Union. As dramatic director of the Glee Club, Dr. Brown has enlarged it’s activities. Muhlenberg has had some notable men competing in oratorical contests; men who have been advised and prepared by Dr. Brown. In addition to his work at the College, Dr. Brown has many ministerial duties. He is pastor of St. Michael ' s Lutheran Church, Al- lentown, and in this capacity has performed a commendable service for the welfare of Allentown as well as for Muhlenberg. ALBERT C. H. FASIG, M.S. Professor of Chemistry Born at Reading, Pa., September 18, 18SS. Prepared at Reading High School. B.S., Muhlenberg College, 1909. Alpha Tau Omega. M.S., Muhlenberg College, 1910. Chemist in the Department of Meat and Milk Inspection, Reading. Elected Instructor of Chemistry. Assistant Pro- fessor, 1917. Elected Professor, 1920. As Faculty representative to the Muhlen- berg College Athletic Association, Professor Fasig is always considerate to the best in- terests of sport at the college. He constantly endeavors to further the growth of legiti- mate athletics at Muhlenberg. However, perhaps the most influential of “Toots’s” athletic activities are unofficial. When the boys are somewhat jaded by too much chemistry, “Toots " expatiates upon the de irability of true sportsmanship at Muh- lenberg, the advantage of team work, and the necessity in applying these ideals to one’s activities in life. Prof. Fasig is the exponent of Chemistry and Geology at the College. Those who are fortunate enough to work under him acquire his clear-cut way of attacking a problem, and imbibe his ideas of good sportsmanship. Page Twenty-three I s 2. T CIARLA HOWARD K. MARKS, A.B. Instructor in Music Born at Emaus, Pa., May 12, 1886. Pre- pared at Allentown High School. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1907 . Alpha Tau Omega. Studied Piano Theory and Com- position under the direction of various musicians. Elected Instructor in Music at Muhlenberg, 1913. Professor Marks is one of the votaries of the aesthetic. He presents music at Muh- lenberg; music to soothe the harassed stu- dents. He inculcates some of the fineness of spirit and culture that is compatible with the ideals of such an institution. Professor Marks’ activities include responsibilities as teacher of History of Music, and of Music itself, instrumental and vocal ; Instructor of the Glee Club, and Organist of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Allentown. He also leads the chapel singing and his frequent song fiestas there delight the students who are all participating. As Instructor of the Glee Club, his personality has inspired the members to give their best, and under his successful leadership the Club has achieved unprecedented recognition, and its tours greatly extended. Harold has a reputation as a great joker and believes in humor as a panacea for all human ills. For he always has an appro- priate pun or witticism for every occasion. We herald greater laurels in the future for the Glee Club under Professor Marks ' capa- ble leadership. ISAAC M. WRIGHT, Ph.D. Professor of Philosophy and Pedagogy Born at Scio, N.Y., March 7, 1879. Pre- pared at Belmont High School. B.S., Al- fred University, 1904. Pd.M., New York University, 1914. Pd.D., New York Uni- versity, 1916. Elected Professor of Phil- osophv and Pedagogy at Muhlenberg, 1917. Phi Kappa Tau. Phi Delta Kappa. Director of Extension Courses. Dr. Wright believes that where there is a will there is a way. He has proven this by his organization of the Extension School, which has since had a phenomenal growth. He has ascribed to the ideals of a Greater Muhlenberg. Many of the Doctor ' s educa- tional theories have been put into practise at Muhlenberg to the furtherance of an al- ready efficient administration. Dr. Wright holds that the proper mental attitude, and how to use what you know, are the pre-requisites for success. Anyone who has taken his Logic and Psychology will agree that his system of inculcating these principles into thousands of his students has not failed. The Doctor is conceded to be an authority on everything and heartily recom- mends specialization. Dr. Wright prepares those who desire eventually to become professors and imparts to them the necessary pedagogical founda- tion. Page Twenty-four I S 2 -T CIARLA WILLIAM S. RITTER, B.S. Director of Physical Education Born at Allentown, Pa., May 17, 1892. Prepared at Allentown Preparatory School. B.S., Muhlenberg ' College, 1916. Alpha Tan Omega. Elected Director of Physical Culture at Muhlenberg, 1919. “Bill” is the bouncer on the faculty. He is the exponent of physical culture at Muh- lenberg and woe to the incorrigibles. Bill has an enviable position as well as an en- viable record at College. In athletics he has shown prowess unexcelled and at this time it is still his specialty. During the time that he was an under-graduate several years ago he became prominent in football, basketball and track. Muhlenberg has reciprocated these honors conferred upon her in sport circles by appointing him a physical director. He formerly coached track but at present is entirely engaged in supervising “gym " classes. “Class, about face, ex, 1-2-3-4,” Bill’s voice booms out, reverberating thru-out the “Gym,” terrifying the yearlings into active submission. But once you become acquainted with “Bill,” you will learn that he is doing it for your own good, for he is a friend of all the boys. “Bill " has quite a job to send the red corpuscles chasing thru the book- weary students and four years of his courses will change a cripple into a veritable Demp- sey. “Bill” has been recently married and we hope that some dav some stalwart Bill, Jr., will be saying “Class 1-2-3-4” at a still greater Muhlenberg. HENRY R. MUELLER A.M., Ph.D. Professor of History Born July 21, 1887. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1 909. A.M., Columbia University, 1915. Post-Graduate work at Columbia, 1914- 17. University Scholar, Columbia, 1915- 16. University Fellow, Columbia, 1916- 17. A.E.F., University of Paris, 1919. Elected Professor of History and Political Science, Muhlenberg College, 1920. Ph.D., Columbia University, 1922. Dr. Mueller has contributed much to the enlargement of the scope of History courses at Muhlenberg. It is largely through his ef- forts that the prestige of History at the Col- lege has been augmented. He has been with us for only a comparatively short time but the increasing number of students who elect his courses show how an interest in the vicissitudes of society is claiming the atten- tion of students. Henry has acquired the reputation of be- ing on the square. Needless to state, this at- titude is reciprocated by his classes. Dr. Mueller, while in service in France, took advantage of the educational oppor- tunities offered and attended the Sorbonne. His extensive study in contemporary history makes him well quali c ed to interpret modern problems. Dr. Mueller’s specialty is U. S. History and he is well versed in the growth of our nation. We trust that his untiring efforts to impart to the students the desire to woo Cleo, the Muse of History, will increase in success in the future as in the past. Page Twenty-five ANTHONY S. CORBIERE Ph.B., M.A. Professor of Romance Languages Born at Nice, France, March 8, 1893. Prepared at Tacoma High School. De- partment of Journalism, University of Washington, 3 years. Phi Kappa Sigma. Sigma Delta Chi. Associate University Players. Sergeant Major, Ambulance Ser- vice, U.S.A., A.K.F., Ph.B., Muhlenberg College. 1920. Graduate Work, Columbia University, 1920-21. M.A., University of Pennsylvania, 1923. HOWARD R. KISTLER, B.S. Instructor in Chemistry Born at Wetherhold, Pa., March 14, 1893. Prepared at Allentown High School. B.S., Muhlenberg ' , 1915. Chemist, J. T. Baker Chemical Company. Member of the American Chemical Society; Society of Chemical Industry; Chemical Engineers. Elected Instructor of Chemistry at Muh- lenberg, 1921. Graduate Work at Syra- cuse University, 1922-23-24. Prof. Corbiere has had probably more ad- verse circumstances under which to acquire an education than any other man on the faculty. Adventure has been the key-note of his early life. Born in France, he came to this country while still a boy and with a firm determination to make the most of his op- portunities, succeeded to acquire a college education. Before the world war he special- ized in dramatics and journalism at the Uni- versity of Washington, where he became re- nowned as a football player. During the war he saw active service with the Ameri- can Army in France. Prof. Corbiere founded the French Club at Muhlenberg College. Under his tutelage French and Spanish have assumed the posi- tion of importance worthy of such languages. Phis year Prof. Corbiere is on a leave of absence. Fie is traveling thru Spain, France and Italy. Daily he sends over to us a most interesting letter, containing an account of his travels, description of the peoples and places he has seen. The scope of the department of the Ro- mance largjages will be augmented upon the return of Prof. Corbiere to Muhlenberg. Prof. Kistler is one of our faculty who is well versed in the subject of chemistry, from the practical as well as the theoretical stand- point. After being graduated from Muhlen- berg he received the practical side in the em- ploy of the J. T. Baker Company where he distinguished himself. In 1921 he was elect- ed instructor of chemistry at his Alma Mater and thru his untiring efforts the department has made rapid strides. The majority of students take some work under Prof. Kistler and the A. B. men, in their Sophomore year, learn what real Chemistry is like. Outside of the classroom, Mr. Kistler proves himself not so stern a man and is always interested in any sub- ject, but especially the chemical field. In classes we always enjoy hearing Prof. Kistler tell of his many interesting exper- iences in the chemical laboratories in which he has worked. Prof. Kistler is a thorough teacher and al- lows no loafing or bluffing. The “Lab " is the place to find him and even though he is very busy he can always find time to help a weak student. Page Twenty-six JOHN V. SHANKWEILER, B.S. LUTHER J. DECK, A.B. Instructor in Biology Born at Huff’s Church, Berks County, Pa., July 22, 1894. Keystone State Nor- mal School. A.E.F., 79th Division. B.S., Muhlenberg, Phi Kappa Tau. Elected In- structor in Biology, 1921. Graduate Work, Cornell University, 1924. An observing student can usually notice a gentleman cutting the rear campus, upon in- quiry it is none other than our Professor Shank weiler. His specialty is Biology and when he was elected to the faculty as Biol- ogy Instructor a move was made which hardly could be equaled. His knowledge and unstinted efforts have developed and ele- vated the Biology department to the worthy place it should hold. When an A. B. man enters his Sanctum Sanctorum, (the cold storage room), he says, “Ugh, let’s get out,” but the B. S. man says Ah, for there you find the finest collection of well preserved cats, turtles, frogs and fishes. It is with these that he attempts to teach and show the extant Biological phe- nomenas. The field that he covers is enor- mous and so to be well fitted to impart knowledge of that science, Prof. Shankweiler is taking postgraduate work at Cornell. We wish him success. As Prof. Shankweiler is a graduate of Muhlenberg, the spirit which was in- stilled in him at that time can not be ques- tioned, he is a Muhlenberg man throughout. Instructor in Mathematics and Physics Born at Hamburg, Pa., February 7, 1899. Prepared at Hamburg High School. A.B., Muhlenberg ' College, 1920. Delta Theta. Graduate Work, University of Pennsylvania, 1921 and 1923-24. Pi Mu Epsilon, Honorary Math. Fraternity. Elected Instructor in Mathematics and Physics at Muhlenberg College, 1921. Professor Deck is Muhlenberg ' s contempo- rary Pythagoras. He assists the men of Muh- lenberg to master the intricacies of sines and co-sines and various other mathematical for- mulae. This Professor has the reputation of being a hard marker, but that this does not detract from the popularity of his courses is shown by the large number of men who take them often as “math for math ' s sake. " He has quite recently returned from a leave of absence of a year at the graduate school of absence of a year, having attended the graduate school of the University of Penn- sylvania ; where his prowess in deduction was considerably fortified, and he is now giving his students new mathematical treats. Professor Deck has also organized the “Math Club” at Muhlenberg, which while yet in its infancy, has quite a large mem- bership. Luther’s hobby is music. We commend his choice of it as a suitable complement to mathematics. He is also a patron of the theatre and the best performances at the Lyric and Colonial in Allentown receive his attention. New mathematical vistas are opening at Muhlenberg under the meticulous supervision and advise of Professor Deck. Pag ; Twenty-seven 19 2 7 C IARLA Rev. CHARLES B. BOWMAN A.M., B.D. Professor of Sociology , Economics , and B usuness A d ministration Born at Parryville, 1873. Prepared at Lehighton High School. A.B., North- western College, 1896. B.D., Drew Theo- logical Seminary, 1900. A.M., Northwes- tern College, 1903. Graduate Work, Uni- versity of Chicago, 1912-14. University of Wisconsin, 1916. Elected Professor of Sociology and Economics at Muhlenberg, 1922. Dr. Bowman ' s job is to convert irrespon- sible under-graduates into potential business magnates. To effect this he instills into the students who have the privilege of taking his courses the intricacies of Sociology, Eco- nomics, Business Administration and kindred subjects. Dr. Bowman has turned out many Muhlenberg men who have become success- ful in business. The large number of stu- dents who work under Dr. Bowman vouch for his effective manner of presentation and his interesting personality. “Charlie " is very versatile. He has trav- eled all over the world and to illustrate his point in classroom discussion relates numer- ous fascinating experiences about his travels. He has held varied political positions, one as Mayor of a prominent Western city. Dr. Bowman is also a minister and conducts re- ligious services in various parts of the com- munity. Charlie has what is called a “heavy line, " but he has the goods to back it up. He has assisted in many ways to extend the scope of Muhlenberg ' s scholastic activities. PRESTON A. BARBA, A.M., Ph.D. Professor of German Born at Bethlehem, April 7, 1883. Pre- pared at Allentown High School and Bethlehem Prep. A.B., Muhlenberg Col- lege, 1916. A.M., Yale University, 1907. University of Pennsylvania, 1911. Fellow at Goettingen, Heidelberg, University of Berlin. Professor of German at Muhlen- berg, 1922. Dr. Barba’s entire career has been one of remarkable success. As a student of Muh- lenberg College some ten years ago, he had laid the foundations of a work that has grown to astonishing proportions. Dr. Barba has always been a consistent student. His delving into the ramifications of German Literature has inspired many ambitious stu- dents to elect his courses. Dr. Barba has al- ways impressed us as the kind of a man we would like to be. His arrival at Muhlenberg several years ago inaugurated a new regime in the department of German. He was the first to organize a German Club. This Club presents a German play every year, under the meticulous direction of Dr. Barba. Dr. Barba has recently completed a text book, a collection of German poems, in col- laberation with Professor Vos of the Uni- versity of Indiana. Dr. Barba has in the years past, conducted a European tour, concentrating on Germany, returning with a wealth of valuable infor- mation and interesting anecdotes. Page Twenty-eight CHARLES S. ALLEN, E.E., M.S. Professor of Physics Born at Bloomsbury, N. J., June 1, 1898. Prepared 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, Tan Beta Phi, Phi Kappa Tau. Member of American Institute of Electri- cal Engineers. Elected Assistant Profes- sor of Physics at Muhlenberg- College, 1 923, Prof. Allen, although he has only been with us for three years, has won a place in the hearts of not only the students who take his courses but also the rest of the student body. The class of 1927 feel that he is a member of it because he came to Muhlen- berg, from our neighboring rivals, in the same year the class entered. Prof. Allen’s department is Physics and this section has developed very rapidly thru his untiring efforts. Recently a course in radio has been instituted by him in which many of the student; have taken a deep in- terest and the course is a pronounced success. This year Prof. Allen has developed a suc- cessful band at Muhlenberg. Band work had never been a success under student leadership but under the direction of Prof. Allen we have one of the best organizations in collegiate circles. The college appreciates very much the work done by Prof. Allen and next year we expect to see a fifty piece band enter the football field to lend spirit to the games. Prof. Allen, in order to mix with the stu- dents, is willing to risk his good health bv eating in Fritchman’s Stationary Lunch Wagon and it is appreciated. It is hoped that Prof. Allen will continue to stay with us for many years and it is un- doubted that his department will become an outstanding one thru his untiring efforts. ARTHUR T. GILLESPIE, B.S. Instructor in English and Insurance; Coach of the Debating Team 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 De- bating Fraternity. Coach of debating and instructor in English and History. Many times in the basement lounging room, a crowd of students can be seen, lis- tening in rapt attention to a certain indi- vidual’s discussion on current problems. Who is this personage? Mr. Gillespie is the orator at these quasi-mass meetings. H is ready supply of information has enabled him as debating coach, to build up within two seasons a logic team, which is establishing a highly creditable record. His accomplish- ment is made more remarkable by the fact that prior to his tenure at Muhlenberg there was no debating whatsoever. As a debater, he himself has had much experience since he was a member of the University of Penn- sylvania’s team for three years. In addition, Mr. Gillespie is an instructor in English and Insurance. His copious wit and magnetic personality make attendance to his classes both desirable and worth while. In fact, his friendly contact with the stu- dents is very characteristic. Mr. Gillespie will be the Debating Coach at Muhlenberg next year, and in addition will take up the study of law at the LTniver- sity of Pennsylvania. We indeed, wish him success. Page Twenty-nine J. KENNETH BENNETT, B.S. Instructor of Romance Languages HARRY HESS REICHARD, Ph.D. Professor of German Born, Bethlehem, Pa., Dec. 14, 1901. Pre- pared at Bethlehem High School, 1919; Moravian College, B.S. in languages, 1923; Graduate work University of Pennsyl- vania, summer 1925. Instructor of Ro- mance Languages at Muhlenberg, 1925-26. I his year another new face greeted us, among our instructors, who came to fill the temporary vacancy made by Professor Cor- biere who is studying in Europe. Mr. Ben- nett had a very difficult task to try to fill the chair of modern languages but has proven himself a worthy instructor. In class we have found that it is neces- sary to have the assigned work out every day or be received very sternly by him. Out- side of the classroom, however, he is found to be a good fellow and one whom it is en- joyable to speak to, between the puffs of his favorite pipe. He always has a supply of good jokes and with a little persuasion will allow one to enjoy them with him. Mr. Bennett is one of the youngest mem- bers of the faculty and it is certain that after a few more years of teaching exper- ience, he will become a big success in his de- partment. Mr. Ecnnett has also taken a keen inter- est in college activities and Le Cercle Fran- cais is having a successful year under his guidance. The Glee Club also claims him as a member of their instrumental trio which has been received with much applause and praise. His instrument is the cello of which he has proven himself a master. The class of 1927 wish him the best of good fortune and success. Born , 1878. A.B. Lafayette College, 1901; A.M. Lafayette College. 1905; Scholar at Johns Hopkins University 1908-09; Fel- low, lohns Hopkins University 1909-11; Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University, 1911; Summer School Instructor at Muhlenberg 1924-25. Professor of German, Muhlen- berg, 1925-26. Dr. Reichard is a new addition to the fac- ulty of Muhlenberg College. Although be taught during the summer of 1925, this is the first college year that the student body has the opportunity of forming its close ac- quaintance with him. Previous to coming to Muhlenberg, Dr. Reichard has had an extensive and varied career in pedagogy, making him especially we.l qualified to cope successfully with the particular demands of his department. He has taught at Atlantic City High School, Knox College, Penn State and Heidelberg University. Dr. Reichard has traveled ex- tensively in Germany, France, Italy and Greece. His researches in these lands have contributed to his erudition. He has recently published a work on Pennsylvania German and Dialect writings and their authors. Since Dr. Reichard came to Muhlenberg the first year men have developed an inter- est and an appreciation of German and Greek literature that has never before been equaled. We attribute this largely to Dr. Reichard ' s charm of manner in presenting his material and his winning personality. His success at Muhlenberg is already guar- anteed. Page Thirty JAMES EDGAR SWAIN, A.M. Assistant Professor of History Born near Indianapolis, Indiana, Aug. 20, ItfyT. A.B., Indiana University, 1921; A.M., Indiana University, 1922; Instructor and Graduate student University of Penn- sylvania, 1922-24; Harrison Fellow in His- tory at University of Pennsylvania, 1924- 25; Elected Instructor at Muhlenberg 1925, made Assistant Professor of History, 1 926. Altho Prof. Swain is a new man at this institution, he has already shown that he is imbued with that particular and definite spirit of Muhlenberg, the nature of which only the persons connected with the College can understand. The department of History has made a great progress owing to the united and un- tiring efforts of Prof. Swain and Dr. Muel- ler. Many new and attractive courses are being offered and Prof. Swain can be credit- ed for much of these results. Prof. Swain has already found manv ac- quaintances in the College and has adequate- ly proven to all his ability to assume his present position. Prof. Swain with Prof. Mueller was in- strumental in forming a History Club on the campus. This recent organization will no doubt aid much in the students’ apprecia- tion of political and social history. We hope to hear more of this club later. No doubt Prof. Swain will sponsor the club next year, as Prof. Mueller is expected to take a year’s leave of absence. We wish Prof. Swain the best of luck and assure him that he will always meet with the active co-operation of his students. HERMANN F. VIEWEG B.Chem., Ph. D. Professor of Physical and Organic Chemistry Born at Buffalo, N. Y„ Sept. 12, 1900. Prepared at Elmira Free Academy. Sigma Xi and Phi Kappa Phi Honorary Societies. B. Chemistry, Cornell University, 1921. Ph.D., Cornell University, 1924. Professor of Physical and Organic Chemistry, Muh- lenberg Colleg ' e, 1925-26. Dr. Vieweg has come to Muhlenberg Col- lege from Cornell University where he had acquired a reputation for his almost inex- haustible knowledge of chemistry. Dr. Vieweg has indeed an enviable record to begin with at Muhlenberg. In Honors, he held the Tuition, Cash, Undergraduate, and Ex-Service Scholarships at Cornell Univer- sity. He was also awarded the G. C. Cald- well Prize for Excellence in Chemistry at Cornell University, 1921, Professor Vieweg is a member of the Sigma XI and Phi Kappa Phi Honorary Societies, and a member of the American Chemical Society. We cannot help but honor the fact that our friend in the Chemistry Laboratory was a First Lieutenant in the 311th Field Artil- lery, U. S. Army. His teaching career commenced at Cornell University where he was instructor of Crystallography and Mineralogy, 1919-24. In the summers of 1923 and 1924 Dr. Vieweg did some research work in Chemistry at Cor- nell University, and in 1924-25 became an Assistant Professor of Mineralogy, at the same institution. May Dr, Vieweg’s success in Chemistry be just as brilliant at Muhlenberg as at Cornell, if not more. Page T hirty-one 19 2 7 Cl A EARL LARKIN WILLIAMS, A.M. Instructor in Mathematics Born, August 22, 1903, Honeybrook, Pa., Prepared at West Chester High, West Chester, Pa. A.B., Swarthmore College in 1924 and A.M. in 1925 with Major Math, and Major Astronomy respectively. Grad- uate work at University of Pennsylvania in 1925-26. Entered Muhlenberg as In- structor in Mathematics in 1925-26. The College welcomes into its midst In- structor Williams, who specializes in Math- ematics. He is a veritable prodigy in his line. When seen on the Campus he looks like one of the students, but his dignity and learning soon give him away. He hails from an institution which has long been our rival in sport circles, that is Swarthmore College. We surely hope that he can acclimate himself and allow the Spirit of Muhlenberg go hand in hand with that of his Alma Mater. Instructor Williams, tho still a young man, has achieved a record in the scholastic world which should make all of our under- graduates look up to and try to equal. He is a member of Pi Delta Epsilon, (National honorary fraternity for collegiate Journalism); Associate member of Sigma XI, (National honorary society for promo- tion of Scientific Research); also a member of the American and British Astronomical Societies, and has been at Durango, Mexico, to observe the total eclipse of the sun with the Sproul Observatory expedition of Swarthmore College during the summer of 1923 . Thus to have a man of his no mean abil- ity on the Mathematics Staff of Muhlenberg is indeed a pleasure and we surely hope that his work here will eclipse that of his past achievements. HARRY A. BENFER, A.M. Coach of Athletics Born in Lock Haven, Pa., October 24, 1895. Prepared at York High School. A.B. and A.M. Albright College 1915-16. Honorable mention on All American Football Team by Walter Camp 1914. 1916-19 Coach of Athletics at Western Union College, La Mars, Iowa. 1919-25 Coach of Athletics at Albright College. Appointed Coach of Athletics at Muhlen- berg College 19Z5. When Coach Benfer arrived at Muhlen- berg, he found student spirit in that doubt- ful and gloomy state which every change of organization brings with it. However, he had not been here long before his qualities of leadership and coaching ability made themselves felt. He has in his short stay here produced one of Muhlenberg ' s best foot- ball teams and has led the basketball team to a repetition of its old successes. Coach “Haps” believes in playing the great game of life squarely and bravely, whatever the odds, and it is this doctrine which he has made a part of our school life. As an ath- lete Benfer has a brilliant record; while coaching at Albright he had great success, but his endeavors at Muhlenberg have with- in a very short time produced even more magnificent triumphs than those. “Haps” is an athlete first of all, but his abilities go far beyond that field. Without saying more, we can truly assert that Benfer is an ideal type of coach, vigorous, aggressive, and able, and that his short reign on the campus has al- ready brought forth as great confidence from the students as can possibly be vested in a leader.

Prepared at Quaker- town High School and Williamson Trade School. Ph.B., Muhlenberg College, 1916. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Instructor in the Department of Natural and Applied Science, 1917. M.S., Muhlenberg ' College, 1919. Elected Field Secretary, 1921. Mr. Afflerbach is the czar of athletics at Muhlenberg College; not that he is dicta- torial by any means, but his executive ability in the field of sports merited his appoint- ment as Graduate Manager of Athletics at Muhlenberg. The success of the College’s athletic teams, particularly in football and the excellent quality of the new men each year, vouch well for Guerney’s capacities to select the best. He is a hard worker and believes in playing the game, for he never selects any easy football schedule. This only shows the more how Muhlenberg has raised her athletic standards under the firm guid- ance of Guerney. Guerney has the admirable quality of al- ways looking on the bright side and, before every game, “peps” the boys up with his “we’re going to win” spirit. During the recent Muhlenberg campaign Guerney was appointed Field Secretary and in company with Dr. Haas toured the country in a thou- sand mile trip. Guerney’s work during the campaign is of inestimable value and it is largely through his efforts that it went “over the top.” May he continue the good work he has done and help to establish a greater Muhlenberg. OSCAR F. BERNHEIM, A.B. Treasurer , Secretary and Registrar Born at Mt. Pleasant, N. C., November 16, 1868. Prepared at Academic Depart- ment of Muhlenberg College. A.B., Muh- lenberg College, 1892. Alpha Tau Omega. Elected Treasurer and Registrar of Muh- lenberg College, 1907. Elected Secretary, 1919. Member of Association of College Registrars. When one comes to Muhlenberg to enroll as a student, “Bernie” is the first man he meets. And his pleasant smile and welcomed hand-shake is indeed enough to make any newcomer feel at home immediately. Mr. Bernheim is located in a splendid office and he is a mighty busy man. His duties as Registrar of the College, as Secre- tary and Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the College, his various duties also tun- ning along the line of printing, Mr. Bern- heim can always be seen hard at work with his “reliable” protruding from his mouth. “Bernie " meets all the students and knows them fairly well, for it is to him the bills of the College are paid. From the nature of his duty as collector of monies, one would think the students would keep away, but when one wants something done to the rooms in the Dormitory, Bernie is right there to attend to our wants and he does if cheer- fully. With all his many duties, Mr. Bernheim can be seen at all the contests of Athletics of the College, for he is an ardent enthusiast of sports of his Alma Mater. Then, too, with the exception of a few rooms in the Dormitories, “Bernie’s” office is second to none when it comes to arguing politics and other important topics. With a cheerful word to all and partial to none — that’s “Bernie.” Page Thirty-three I S3 S -7- r -Z=r Cl AE.LA RALPH F.

Entered University of Pennsyl- vania Medical School, 1915. M.D., Uni- versity of Pennsylvania, 1919. Examining Physician since 1922. Dr. Merkle is the man who takes care of the physical well-being at Muhlenberg College. Every year, the Freshman and his modesty must part for a short while, until Dr. Mer- kle has carefully scrutinized him. This is to insure a high physical standard at the College, and to alleviate the yearling ' s grow- ing pains as well as to prescribe corrective treatments for those with physical defects. Fortunately none of us have developed any manias, for “Doc” has assured us that we are all right. The “Doc’s” favorite instruments of tor- ture are the scope and the hammer, and to the neophyte, the impending examination is quite an ordeal. The Doctor’s other duties are to patch up broken gridiron warriors and to return them to the fray with renewed vim and vitality and vigor. A part of the “Doc’s” activities are lit- erary, for excuses must be presented for ill- ness and otherwise to cancel class cuts. Nevertheless the decreasing number of ex- cuses presented lately show how well Dr. Merkle has taken care of the student body. JOHN CHARLES RAUSCH, D.D. Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds Born at Philadelphia, June 21, 1897. Prepared at Allentown, 1882-86. A.B., Muhlenberg College, 1890. Mt. Airy Semi- nary, 1893 Ordained, 1 893.

Allentown School Board, 6 years. Built High School and several churches. Secretary Grounds and Buildings, Muh- lenberg College, 1924. The welfare of Muhlenberg College has been one of the primary factors in Dr. Rausch’s life. For over twenty years he has faithfully labored for the attainment of a vision of a Greater Muhlenberg. Formerly in an un-official capacity he re-constructed the several dormitory sections and he has been actively engaged in boosting Muhlen- berg throughout educational circles. Dr. Rausch is a former minister. He had charge of the Lutheran Church in Allentown, but resigned his position when his Alma Mater called him. The other year Muhlen- berg College appointed Dr. Rausch Superin- tendent of Buildings in recognizance of the great work he has done for Muhlenbeig. Dr. Rausch can always be found around the campus directing the construction of the new buildings. Dr. Rausch is interested in the conduct of the boys, and the student body has adopted his regulations, which are well calculated to strengthen the morale of the College. We believe that Dr. Rausch’s work has just begun and that Muhlenberg will make rapid strides toward its ideal through the able assistance of such a man. Page Thirty-four Page Thirty- five I S 22 -7 CIARLA Page T hirty-six THE COMMONS Page Thirty-seven John A. W. H AAS H OR twenty years there has been a gradual approach to the Muhlenberg that exists today. We are now on the eve of having one of the best equipped and most thoroughly manned science buildings. Our equipment will be superior and our teaching staff of the highest order. Our library will also be completed within the coming year. And then we must approach the problem of the gymnasium. Our endowment will soon run over nine hundred thousand dollars. Our student body is fast approaching the present limit of five hundred which we have set for ourselves. But the attainments of the present in the creator of the Greater Muhlenberg of today is only a promise of the still greater Muhlenberger. There will be needed in the near future a chapel to meet the needs of our growing numbers. Such a chapel will elevate our worship and be a great center for our religious work which will be in charge of a man in sympathy with the students, who shall be their special counselor and friend. We are sorely in need of such a chapel, which must be a beautiful build- ing and constructed to express a pure type of church architecture. Then our pro- gram must provide for a well thought out and carefully planned dining hall with reception rooms and social rooms for the students. It m ust meet the demands of large Page Thirty-eight I 3 ZZ 7 ClARL i alumni gatherings and of great receptions which the college ought to have to meet its larger obligations. The style of the dining hall and its equipment should express beauty and comfort. Of equal importance with a dining hall is a great auditorium to be used not only for commencement purposes but for many lectures and concerts to be given in the course of the school year. With all these buildings provided and with additions to the dormitories we can begin to undertake the further development of the campus. The President’s house can then be removed to a park development south of Chew street and in this park development there can be built professor’s houses. A broad avenue will lead from the library through the residence park down to Cedar Creek wh ere some day we ought to construct a Lake. In front of the three buildings now almost ready there will be a large oval campus with a statute of Muhlenberg in the center. The quadrangle of the dormitories will have in its center a fine fountain and he surrounded with flower beds. All of this development will come just as fast as our friends will respond to the cause. It is no wild dream or idle fancy, but the sober statement of what is included in our future programme. Muhlenberg College is already a beauty spot in Allentown our future program. Muhlenberg College is already a beauty spot in Allentown make it even more beautiful than it is today.

GRAVER Muhlenberg Correspondent for the Chronicle and News Muhlenberg is exceedingly fortunate in having a paid correspondent, a member of the student body, on the editorial staff of the Chronicle and News, Allentown’s afternoon daily newspaper. This, the idea of John W. Stickle, vice president and gen- eral manager of the Chronicle and News, makes possible a closer relationship between the college and the community which the paper serves. Through the cooperation of Dr. Haas, our president, with Mr. Stickle, this inno- vation was begun last year. Morris Shafer, ’25, was selected as the first correspondent, capably fulfilling his duties as press representative. The college authorities, college alumni, and townspeople, were loud in their praise of the creation of this office on the campus. From what had been largely in the nature of an experiment, now became an established position. G. W. Graver, ’26, a member of Prof. Simpson’s journalism class, and assistant to Mr. Shafer in his work last year, was given the position by Mr. Stickle, succeeding Mr. Shafer as Muhlenberg correspondent. All the news of the college is given prominent space in the Chronicle and News, under a special Muhlenberg heading. Of outstanding interest this year have been the letters which Mr. Graver has received from Prof. Anthony S. Corbiere studying in Europe for his doctor’s degree, for publication in the Chronicle and News. Mr. Graver is to be complimented for his foresight in having made an arrangement like this with Professor Corbiere, the publication of these letters having received wide and favorable comment. The benefit to Muhlenberg is twofold in the having of a paid correspondent: first, in that the college receives the widest publicity, of incalculable value to Muhlenberg; secondly, by the Chronicle and News the money paid for correspondent is the same as endowing the college with a scholarship, although full value is given by services rendered. The management of the Chronicle and News is to be congratulated for its progres- siveness in creating this position at Muhlenberg, it being the only paper which main- tains a paid correspondent here. Full college credits are given the correspondent for the work done in journalism, the same as if it were class work, this practical work having far more value than the theoretical journalism. Page Forty-seven EtJSiiD I O 2 ClAR My Dream City High in the hills near the snowy clouds Lies my City of the Towers. It meets my gaze in the earth’s thick crowds; In the hottest summer hours. Spires and battlements soar away, Chiselled of marble white, And they grow more glorious day by day, And they shine like stars at night. I see it afar and my eyes are dimmed By the glare of the snowy piles. By a lofty wall is the city rimmed And it stretches away for miles. There are churches and palaces, courts and halls, That arise toward the azure sky, And arches and columns and massive walls, And mansions of kings on high. I dream that I wander about the streets Seeing wondrous shrines of gold. Near the churches I pause to breathe incense sweet From the censers of chapels old. All the glory of dawn meets my dazzled gaze, And a sunset fills my eyes, And I wonder oft, as it fades away, If it be Paradise. E. W. A., Jr v ’27 Fireflies The tower clock struck twelve, then one. In vain were my efforts to fall asleep After that evening’s frolicsome fun — How wearily the hours can creep. I rose to enjoy the cool night breeze At my window facing the college green ; I admired the grove ' s tall, plume-topped trees As they bathed in the rising moon’s soft s heen. The dormitories lay death-still Beneath Berks Hall’s twin guardian towers; The clear, calm night wove its charms until I was caught in the spell of its magic hours. I looked, as did our ancient sires, For the fairy revels to come to pass, And, lo, a hundred tiny fires Were dancing on the moonlit grass. The threatening clouds, as black as night, Pierced by the lightning’s dazzling flash, Have passed with the shrieking gale in flight Before the crack of the thunder’s lash. P. W. H., ’26. Page Forty-eight Campus People We may cover nature study, study math, of days gone by, Our minds may turn to ethics or to times in history, We may skirt the field of logic, ramble in the foreign climes, Study power, elusive chemistry and the science of the mines. Of birds or beasts of any kind we may desire to learn, The care of health, economy, may our attentions turn; But to know of campus people, there’s a study for each one, Just a look into the faces; see what Old Man Time has done. We ofttimes see a student, young and careless, full of life, With much to learn away from home, of care, dispute and strife; We wonder in the days to come what message we may see, Written by hard experience and as plain as plain can be. Then, too, we see the older ones, the faces that now show, Written and marked by courage, trust and life that is ag!ow ; These are the ones with purpose, a path and goal ahead, Their course is strong and steady, their purpose sure and staid. There comes into our midst the ones, who care not what they do, Pleasure mad, lack judgment, immature, mistakes to rue; Some look ahead and see the wrong that men like these can bring, While others fall into the net and are gone before the Spring. There are features that are happy, there are features that are sad, Lives of success, of happiness, of failure may we add; But the features of those weary, defeated, careworn, blue, Are the ones that trouble me, the most to make my dreams come true. I long for a campus or a clime where just the happy dwell; Where study, life and work and play the ones which experience tell That life ahead is broad and rich, and service full of love, And home wherein all faces beam, is blessed by heaven above. H. E. R., ’26 A Reverie (Dedicated to Mother and Dad) When the evening sun is setting And in the fading light, The gathering shadows warn me Of another long dark night, There ' s a face comes forth to greet me From my heart ' s most holy shrine; And gentle eyes of tender blue Gaze fondly into mine. Tis a vision of my mother — - And I ' most can hear her pray For the boy who left the hearthside, And started on life ' s way. With a blessing sweet and tender From those lips so kind and true, “God bless you, son, and keep you Your whole life ' s journey through.” Then another face comes forward With the smile I love to see — A smile that helped me on my wav From childhood ' s earliest memory, And I hear my dear dad saying In a voice untouched by time. “Boy, you simply must make good For your mother’s sake, and mine.” And then the visions fade away — The pals of my childhood days ; My dear old dad and mother Whom I left at the parting ways. But our paths must oft lead together Throughout the long years to come, And I’ll always find a welcome At the place I call my home. P. A. X., ’28. Page Forty-nine Commons Our present Commons building was built by the Muhlenberg Athletic Association in 1911. For ten years it was customary for the college to appoint a senior student to oversee the man- agership of the dining hall and kitchen, to the best of his ability, while the purchasing of sup- plies was done through the main office of the college. This system did not prove satisfactory, so in order to improve the situation the Board of Directors decided to employ an experienced person to operate the Commons on a sys- tematic basis and take complete charge, including the purchasing of supplies. In January 1922, Mr. Wilfred Fritchman, was appointed as the first full time steward and immediately started a reconstruction of the department. Mr. Fritchman was a former Muhlenberg student and was no stranger on the campus. His ambitions were always centered in the catering game and was raised in institutional and hotel environment, his father having had charge of the operation of same. After serving an ap- prenticeship in various culinary capacities, in- cluding that of chef, Mr. Fritchman served as assistant manager of a large cafateria in Trenton, N. J. After spending one year there he accepted a proposition from the Board of Directors of Muhlenberg to manage the college Commons; his reference as to character and ability having been carefully investigated by the Board. Dur- ing Air. Fritchman’s term of service to the pres- ent day, the Commons has been run on a split even basis without a deficit at the end of the college year. In spite of the continual increase of the cost of food products, the price of board remained the same, $6 per week or 85 5 7c per day. This amount includes the cost of food, breakage of dishes and other overhead expenses, both incurred by operation and students. The meals are arranged by the steward and food values are considered in balancing the menu. Properly prepared plain substantial rations are recommended in preferences to fancy unwhole- some food. A variety is offered and no set days for the serving of certain dishes is followed, in order to break the usual monotony of feeding and satisfying a large number of people. In ar- ranging the meals the steward takes into con- sideration the educating of the palate and certain physical needs essential for the upbuilding of the health of students while acquiring their brain culture in other departments of the col- lege. This fact is rarely appreciated by the student until he leaves college and gets out into the world at which time he has to think for himself and starts to arrange his own bill of fare. He not only thinks of the health combinations but also the different styles of preparation of various popular foods which in a number of cases he acquired a fond- Wilfred Fritchman Born Trenton, N.

He is also relieved of a certain amount of embarrasment when he gets out among h s friends in view of the fact that he can intelligently read the menu of the hotel where he is being entertained, he recalls eating that particular thing while at college and was informed to its name and ingredients in the same. Proof of this statement has been made by a number of alumni. Deserving students who are in needy circumstances are given an opportunity to earn their board by being employed as waiters or kitchen heloers. These students de- serve praise as it requires quite some sacrificing of their part in order to perform their duties each day. While working their way through in that way they are not only receiving a financial aid but are also taught the value of certain personal responsibilities which most of them a v e not accustomed to and which in turn with a proper attitude becomes an asset to them In .heir later fife. THE DINING H ALL Page Fifty-one Page Fifty-two Page Fifty-three Page Fifty-four THE SENIOR CLASS CIARI class of 1926 as an undergraduate body is about to pass out of existence. ■ J Four years have elapsed since we first entered Muhlenberg. And before we leave it is only fitting that a resume of our activities be recorded. During these four years we have received certain things and at the same time have given something to the institution. Of course the most valuable of the things we re- ceived is the socalled education. We have learned that the purpose of a college education is not to fit a man for a trade ; that a blank book may become a bank book with more value than that of sordid currency; and that the knowledge of the best methods of governing a suburban town is as important as the sanitary conditions in Siam. And all of these things were mighty interesting as well as valuable. But the value of what we have received pales into insignificance besides those things which we have contributed to our Alma Mater. In writing the history of a class for a college publication it is difficult to avoid the usual high sounding laudatory phrases. And in writing the history of the class of 1926 this condition is especially true. For to give a true record of the achievements of the class would necessarily require praise and laudations. Limitations of space prohibit the giving of a detailed list of our accomplishments, through the four years, that have contributed to the honor of Muhlenberg. But we can say that our record has been such as to have us acknowledged as the one class superior to all others in the history of the college. We had resolved when entering Muhlenberg to support her honor and her name always. But we have surpassed even our fondest hopes and expectations. This is a record of events as they have occurred and not a prophecy of the future but we safely predict that, if we continue in life to uphold the standard that we have set in college, the millennium is but around the corner.

Page Sixty Page Sixty-one Page Sixty-two THE JUNIOR CLASS CIARLA c Our Junior Year ADLY diminished in numbers, but still one in heart, were we as we entered upon the threshold of our Junior year. One ancient event was taken from us ; we could not join in battle in the Pagan-minister football game, for time was lacking for it. Thus the last hope of our class for a grand battle- royal was lost, but we had other things to recompense us for our loss. Did we not tear our throats out as Muhlenberg, for the first time in years, scored against Lafayette? Were not our men first in that grand march about the Holy City as Lehigh went down in defeat before a Cardinal and Gray team for the second time in history? Was not one of us the engineer in charge of the bonfire which followed that victory and the one over poor Franklin and Marshall? Surely tve weren’t inactive there. Our men not only took heroes’ parts in a successful football season, but formed the bulk of the basketball squad, the baseball nine, and the track team. They led in campus activity, in class work and in all sorts of gaiety. As this history goes to the presses which will write it down for all men to behold and wonder, two great events are as yet not fully compassed, which are these, the Ausflug and the Junior Prom. However, as our hearts are set on making these the events of the year, they cannot but succeed, and indeed they must, when ’27 stands behind them. We have published this Ciarla, as the custom is, that the history of the campus might be duly set down for those who shall come after us to read. In it we have faithfully set forth all that has come to be at Muhlenberg, whether to our advantage or not, but we have written it just the same. It is a great story, and as it is said, fearfully and wonderfully made. Yet the most glorious and inspiring part of it is that which deals with us and with our deeds in field or on floor. So grand is it that when those who will fill the halls of Muhlenberg in the days to come, chance upon it and read, they will stand in awe and say to their friends, Truly, there were giants in those days. EDWARD W. ALTHOF, JR. Page Sixty-three D EARLY three years ago the class of 1927 entered Muhlenberg’s portals for the first time. About a hundred freshmen constituted that group which opened its college career in Chapel on September 13, 1923, as Dr. Bailey addressed them in the course of the traditional opening exercise, as they rose abashed at the old cry of “L T p Frosh” and stood thrilled during the singing of their battle hymn, Muhlenberg’s Alma Mater. The men who formed that Freshman group are the present Juniors. What a glorious history they have to look back upon, now that they have passed the underclass years of strife and toil, and have emerged into the serene regions of upper-class bliss! Old faces and familiar have passed, new ones have taken their places, but ’27 itself has not changed, and will not. Green as any were we, and greener perhaps than most, but it did not take us long to show our strength of arms and of character. The Sophomores held no terrors for us, as they soon learned, for we easily defeated them in all the interclass contests, drag- ging them in ignominious rout in the pole fight, successfully defending our banner in the annual contest for that emblem, and overwhelming them in football 24-0. Even after our banquet we got the best of the sophs. Our prowess then shifted its scene of action from the battlefield to the drawing room, and our dance, held at the Hotel Traylor, was a most brilliant affair. Scholasti- cally we were good, athletically very good, but socially we were a nd always have been supreme. Thus closed our Freshman year, which will be for many of us the happiest of our lives. The dawn of our day as Sophomores was bright indeed. With an organization that outstripped in its swiftness any other, we thundered away with the stunned year- lings in every way, holding our banquet before they knew there was to be such an event, wading through them in the pole fight, to the astonishment of every one, clearing the way for Borden to tear away their faltering Hag in the banner scrap, and repeating our exploit in football, this time by a far larger score than before. The newer scraps we lost, but ’27 still holds the enviable record of being one of the two classes to come through the traditional scraps unvanquished. This we did in spite of great odds ; new conditions which hampered us in our attempts at glory, but our indomitable spirit over- came them. Passing by our martial exploits, we did not lag by the wayside in other endeavors. Joyously and gayly we took part in all the glories of a successful football season, a glorious year in fact in all sports; happily we whiled away the pleasant months until spring again woke us to the threat of examinations. However, we passed through them scarcely touched. One dark spot in our history remains to be set forth. This was the death of Yoshio Yano, our classmate from far Nippon, who died of tuberculosis at the Sacred Heart hospital. He was well liked by all his classmates and was a friend of everyone.

As you gaze upon the picture of this intelligent young man from Erie, you see the brightness of the sun, and the wisdom of Minerva personified. 1 his handsome young man will some day succeed in his ambitions and become the president of the Consolidated R. R. of America. Ed possesses more timetables and R. R. data than any other person in Pennsylvania. His room is so filled with them that he uses them as a support under his bed. He does not lack vociferation, and is contrary to the principles of most great thinkers for he is not silent. He never tells us anything about his friends of the fair sex. He always says that the pictures in his room belong to his roommate. Who knows but that his sweetie’s picture is among them. He always stags at dances. It’s not because he can’t dance, for he ' is said to be a regular Arthur Murray, but he doesn’t like our valley girls. “Ed” is not much of an athlete, but always makes his presence known by his admirable cheering. He seldom misses a football game for that is one of his favorite sports. It’s his physique only that prevents him from playing and not the lack of ambition for he has plenty of that qualification. “Al” is one of the most popular and best known men on the campus and especially among the freshmen whom he bawls out for fair, when they dis- obey the rules of our renowned institution. Of course, the freshmen a re not very much scared because he ' s no more than a mere boy himself. He could be called the junior mascot, because of his age. “Ed” is first among his classmates both as to name and intellectual ability. He knows a lit- tle something about everything. With his abil- ity he should be a remarkable success in the world. Page Sixty-five Wilfred William Anderson Rutland, Vt. Cl AC Rutland High School. Alpha Tau Omega. Scrub Football (1,2,3). Mgr. Baseball. Asst. Business Mgr. of Ciarla (3). Lutheran. Republican. Science. W HEN Fate and the Green Mountains got together and voted a man to meander and stalk our beautiful campus, Wilfred William Anderson, otherwise known as “Pete” and “d ug,” hied himself hither by the far famed Lehigh Valley, New York Central, and Rutland Railroad s. When we first popped our orbs at “Pete” we would not have thought him to become the enterprising young business man about the school that he has turned out to be. ' Phis is one-half of the firm of Anderson and Thompson, alias Potash and Perlmutter, Jekyll and Hyde, Robb and Steel, and numerous others. They buy, sell, remodel, rebuy and resell anything and everything they don’t have to Day for. Their room is a veritable storehouse, likened to the Dead Letter Office. There are no written articles of partnership between them, hence no sleep at night for either of them. ' They sit up at night to watch each other. They specialize in College Catalogues and “Y” Handbooks. There is one episode in “Pete’s” sojourn in the Queen City that must not be overlooked and that is his cousin’s wedding. “Pete” was an usher, self ap- pointed, and there was never a finer bit of ushering done. For miles around they still come to see the champion usher of Muhlenberg. One sad part about the ushering was that after having performed his work, there was and there still is, no place for “Pete " to get his cake. However, Dame Rumor has it about that “Pete” gets his cake mailed, or rather, “femaled,” from Rutland, Vt., and you know if Dame Rumor has things about — you know how depend- able the old Dame is — well, “Pete” gets his cake and that isn’t all. Her name is Kay, and we’ll bet she’s a winsome lass. All that “Pete” ever talks about in his extempore speaking, is of the marble up at home. We predict a mean and nasty marble cutter in the making. Also his sister is a revenue officer in Rutland, and that is a help. “Pete” was thrown into the maelstrom on August 29, 1904, and has been whoopin’ it up ever since. Page Sixty-six 13 2 7 Cl A E2, L.

T HIS man comes from Reading, the small suburb of Shillington. He is well liked on the campus and down town because of his pleasing disposi- tion and mild temperament. Eddie is a good student, has a pleasing personality, is socially inclined, and is a great follower of athletics, especially football and basketball. Mealey’s and the Traylor are often visited by this young sheik. He is not only a sheik, but also a heart crusher. For pastime he enjoys playing cards, telling stories, and tickling the ivories. You ask — “Is this gay young man in love.” Well — that is hard to answer but a certain young lass at Summit Hill seems to fill a spot in his heart. We wish you luck, Eddie. Eddie is a prominent member of the Phi Epsilon Fraternity and is only about forty- five men away from first honors; in politics he is a Republican. He is looking forward to the time when he will have charge of a large congregation and can lead the guilty college men down the saw- dust trail, altho Dr. Brown does not seem to appreciate his Billy Sunday attributes at pres- ent. As a member of the Holy Christian Min- istry, we wish him the greatest possible success. Page Sixty-seven I S 7 CIARLA Allentown Preparatory School. Glee Club (1,2,3)- Reformed. Republican. Charles F. Bachman Allentown, Penna. C HARLES, the musician of ’27, is a resident of the nearby village of Allentown. Charles seems to think that this place is a good deal farther from the campus than is popularly imagined for the distance takes him so long to traverse that he has to date reached only seven classes at college before the second bell has rung. Charlie’s intellectual abilities are so great that all the professors wait for him because his learned, although untimed, remarks are always full of a very matured, even sophisticated wisdom. The only argument which Charlie has never been able to win is the problem of convincing Dr. Haas that Jazz is a perfectly legitimate part of the music world. Charlie has ever since his Freshman year, been a member of the Glee Club orchestra but has now graduated to the position of leader and his proteges have produced one of the best orchestras that the Club has had for many years. Their performance at the Freshman Dance received the favorable comment of all present. “Settle your meal with music,” is the motto that Charlie follows and he is often the welcome visitor to the commons with the rest of his orches- tra, which plays while Fritchman weeps over the evi- dent enjoyment of the men at one of his meals. The M. C. A. is also indebted to Charles for the sup- ply of music which he is always glad to furnish for their affairs. Naturally we cannot close this writeup without a brief note about his astounding, marvelous, unbelievable abil- ity to throw a mean G string on a violin, his solo has always been a high light on the program of the Glee Club concert and his solos at the college have always been an enjoyable feature of the meeting.

Lutheran. Democrat. A H! a man appears on the horizon. Oh! beg pardon it’s only Charlie encased in a week’s growth of woman’s crowning glory and a pair of dirty-white sailor pants. His greeting is, “Have you seen Si (Myers) ?”, for these two products of Sellersville are well nigh inseparable. Charlie claims that as long as one goes to college to polish classroom furniture there is no need of wearing fine clothes with which to do it. H owever Charlie’s greatest weakness is women. He claims that he never goes out with the same one more than twice. We wonder whether it is her fault or his. There is one consolation — “Mealeys” always is ready to furnish a new supply. Lately we feel that Charlie has been digressing from his old policy. For since his recovery from a serious operation for ap- pendicitis, last spring; he has been making regular visits to the Nurses’ Col- lege and to some of the outlying suburbs of the big town. Charlie’s favorite way of spending his leisure time is playing draw pinochle. We are not sure whether it is his ability or his luck that has made him a champion of this indoor sport. Charlie also craves his exercise and after buffaloing Bill into an excuse, he may be seen working out with the best of the track squad, getting into condition for the big meets. He claims he never ran a faster half-mile than when it was falsely reported about the dorms that the fair ground buildings were afire. Playing golf in the daytime and football in the quadrangle by moonshine gave Charlie a well rounded amount of exercise. Along with his many other accomplishments he is a well known musician, having both play- ed with the Mandolin Club and sung as a member of the Glee Club for two years, not to mention his work with the Fanatical Few of Van Duesen fame, and also a prominent figure in our famous Muhlenberg College Band. Page Sixty-nine ! S 2 T CIARLA Harold S. Barnes Allentown, Penna. Allentown Preparatory School. Pres- byterian. W E should worry about Prohibtion. The class of ’27 has its Scotch right with it. “Go ahead and razz me, 1 don’t care,” said our friend Barnes to the perpetrators of this write up. B ut he is such a good friend of ours that we really haven’t the hearts to do it. To put it mildly, Barnes is just pleasingly plump. More than once, he has made up his mind to reduce. He persuaded his folks to move to the crest of the picturesque Lehigh mountain, from which he planned to walk to Muh- lenberg college daily. But he complains he can’t find a plank long enough to bridge the little Lehigh, so he sighs dejectedly because of the world’s cruelty, sinks into the downy softness of his father’s Packard and says mournfully, “Home, James.” Both Barnes and everyone that I have asked about him, swear that Barnes has nothing to do with the ladies. At this point, I want to ask the world a few questions. Why does he go in for tennis so whole-heartedly? Why does he take such an unusual interest in the Lrog language? Better lay off the Lrench, boy. They are short and fat, toothless and oddlooking. Barnes hasn’t any idea what he will do after he is through Muhlenberg. Everyone loves a fat man, so we think he would make a success as a social worker. Then again he has the gift of gab, and he ought to make a good lawyer. Also his splendid personality and keen industry are good requisites for a suc- cessful business. Well, whatever he undertakes we wish him the best of success. He is a most like- able chap and we feel sure he will be liked by countless numbers of friends outside of college, and will do his best in the interests of humanity and society. Page Seventy 19 2 7 Cl AR. L A Norman R. Beck Quakertown, Peima. Richland High School. Lutheran. Dem- ocrat. Teaching. T HIS gentleman drifted into our midst so quietly and with no general introduction, that we, the class of 1927, didn’t know we had such a splendid, talented card player. League Hall boasts this student as its cham- pion sharp at pinochle and hasenpfeffer. Norman is a very quiet fellow. He bothers no one. Good looking? Yes, we will say so. And judging by the letters we see, he receives from all parts especially from Kutztown, Pa., we believe that Norman must be a “sheik” with the fair sex. Then, too, he goes home every week-end. He says that he goes home to see the folks. But we wonder ! Norman served his Freshman year three years ago. Then he did some teaching near Richlandtown, Pa., where he was born and reared. And now he has come back to serve his prenticeship in the Ph. B. course, so that he may become a most competent teacher. And we wish him much success. A trusty Sophomore and a loyal Freshman are Norman’s side kicks, and when we wanted to know who Norman Beck was, we were told to look about for those two worthy gentlemen, and we were sure to find Norman in their midst. Norman is a good student, works hard. He is a very likable chap when one gets acquainted with him. He is from the rural section of our beloved land, and like most of the type from that section, he is a bit reserved, con- servative, and wears a sunny smile. Norman is a non-frat man, and be says he is a Democrat with strong emphasis, so we conclude that al- though he doesn’t enter politics while attending college, we believe he shall take an active part in some presiden- tial campaign for the Democratic Par- ty. We wish him the greatest success. Page Seventy-one I Z2. -7 Z AE, L A Luther W. Begel Weissport, Penna. Lehighton High School. Phi Kappa Tau. Student Council (3). Lutheran. Democrat. «T U” is another one of the boys hailing from the sticks of upper Car- ' bon County, boasting as his home town Weissport, a place where good heer still Hows freely. However, Lu is one of the most popular mem- bers of our class. He has been one of our number only for the last two years, having taken one year’s rest after the completion of his Freshman term. This however did not affect his standing among the class in the least for he fell right in line with those whom he at one time might have liked to beat up. He is by no means immune to the opposite sex, being one of the faith- ful patrons of Mealey’s and the Traylor. During the diphtheria quaran- tine at the Phi Kappa Tau house this last fall, he spent considerable time in learning the Charleston and ever since has been suffering from the malady. Lu boasts of friends of the opposite sex in nearly every town in the Lehigh Valley, yet he claims that Lehighton, the town across the river from Weissport, is the best place to be found because Stell lives there and Lu says he wouldn’t mind being private chauffeur to her Overland Six sedan. He’d do it for nothing and even buy the gas if she would let him. As an automobile mechanic Lu is hard to beat. Consequently Prof. Shankweiler has hired him as private groom for his car. No wonder Lu made such excellent marks in his Biology Courses last year. We feel sorry for Grumpy as he is sometimes called, because of his keen appetite for Wirth’s embalming fluid. He claims to be the only man at Muhlenberg who was ever petrified. However, after making several dirty digs, we must say that Lu is one fine chap, and is liked by everyone with whom he has come in contact. His common sense and willingness to help in any emergency has won for him many friends. With the nisus which he portrays and the determination which he has to make good, we believe that Lu will some day be one of the great men of the future. Page Se-venty-iwo I S T r CIARLA Albert S. Benfield Emaus, Penna. Emaus High School. Keystone State Normal School. German Club (2,3). Re- formed. Democrat. Teaching. A FTER eight years experience in the teaching profession, “Senny” decided that he lacked something. Making a thorough inspection of himself he came to the conclusion that satisfaction of his mental cravings could only be had by enrollment at Muhlenberg. His booming voice echoing and reechoing through the Ad halls proclaimed his presence, and scarcely two days had passed before the faculty and entire student body knew of his exist- ence. “Senny” saw service with the A. E. F. and when not wrestling with the Huns he made many acquaintances and lasting friendships with people of many nationalities, (barmaids not exempt). These amicable bonds became so closely welded that, with the depressing conditions of a “dry” nation, “Senny,” accompanied by an Emausian friend whose form and physical figure is worthy of an ex-bartender, made his way across the Atlantic. His ex- ploits and daring adventure while touring European countries comprised the main feature of entertainment to all those who spent their study periods in the Students Rest Room. His fluent usage of the German language, his undeterri’ng preference for “Panic” corncob contents, his unquenchable thirst for beer, and last but not least, his ever-mystifying taste and capacity for sauerkraut and limburger, mayhap accounts for his typical German appearance. Being thus richly quali- fied the Deutcher Verein elected him to its presidency. In lodge circles, he holds member- ship and is active in the P. O. S. of A., K. G. E., and K. of P. On the fem- inine subject, he claims to be women- proof ; not exactly to be classed as a woman hater because as he says, “women like dogs, have their days.” His favorite evening occupation is pinochle playing, and he can be seen any night in a Broad Street Tobacco Store in Emaus, enjoying the game with a bew hiskered group of has-beens.

Republican. u TAKE ' is one of the cocktails (distinguished from half-pints) come out J of Pottstown, but differing from the Biblic version, in that it is a little good. “Jake” always is full of pep and nearly every one can recall the time when we were freshmen, and “Jake” was quarter of the Freshman team in more ways than one, too. What a mean beating the Sophs took that year, some say that is the reason they left a year before us. “Jake” has always been a fine football player, he did quite well, for a time at least. At Bethle- hem Prep, or anyway that is what we hear from the rest of the team, he was one of the dying lights. One of the big reasons for the success of the Ciarla has been due to “Jake” for his earnest collection of the assessments for the payment of the Ciarla. “Jake” was fortunate enough to secure the position of Assistant Business Manager to the Ciarla and has done his work well. Phe success of the Alpha Tau Omega team in the Inter-Mural race for basketball laurels was in a large measure responsible to Beyer and his spec- tacular shots at forward. “Jake” is a man of many activities and his feats number ; an active part in interclass basketball, and who can forget the time when he almost lost a leg when playing on the freshman baseball team. Naturally we cannot close this poor compilation of “Jake’s” varied talents without a reference to his mascu- line attractiveness (a still small voice — sex appeal) which seems to grab off any woman any time he wants her. “Jake” really does have a wonderful profile, “don’t you think he screens well,” will be probably the cry of the theatre audi- ence about ten years from now. If you don’t believe this, look at the above cut again. Page Seventy-four I S :2 Cl A CL L_ A Edward James Black West New York, N. J. Englewood High School. Delta Theta. Freshman Class President.

Uf- ' DDIE” came from the famous football producing sand pit, New -»— Jersey. We have authority for this statement, for Tursi and Borelli can back us up. “Eddie” first came into the limelight as class president in our Fresh- man Year. For it was his excellent leadership that gave us the victory over the Sophs in all the traditional contests. We shall never forget how we soundly licked the Sophs. Black was one of our best Ends on our football team. Under the excel- lent tutelage of Tursi, Black, with his former experience in High School, de- veloped into a powerful man on the line. We are very thankful to “Eddie” for his excellent work on the gridiron and we are proud that our class can boast of such fine players on our football squad, and we have not a few. “Eddie’s” greatest achievement as a Muhlenberg man is his part played in bringing a complete victory over Lehigh. That yarn will be played and sung ma ' ny times in the hearts of this Junior Class. For a large part of the victory was due 1 to the quality of the men on the team, and the Juniors are proud of its share of its members on the football squad. “Eddie” was the class treasurer for the first half of his Junior year and as such proved quite a business accountant. We believe he will make an excellent business executive as his future vocation. Anyway the class wishes him the best of success in whatever he undertakes. We know very little of “Eddie’s” social af- fairs, but we do know that he isn’t a back number by any means. Anyhow he likes to go home over the week-ends.

Republican. Business. T HE above mentioned young man was born at Groveville, N. J. During his lengthy term on this sphere he was one of the star athletes at Trenton High. But through the natural processes he went to Blair Academy in the wilds of cranberry bogs, but the lessons were too easy, there, so he decided to attend college where he would have a little more competition in his studies. If you wish to learn anything from George about French, ask him and he will tell you where to find it. George is a great lover of sports but his main weakness is baseball. He is such an enthusiast of that sport, that he advises every mother to start her child right by permitting the “babe” to use baseballs instead of teething rings. He claims he made his start bv getting hits from his parents in this manner. George plays shortstop, because he isn’t very tall, and therefore he doesn’t have to stoop so low for the grounders. Speaking of size, he’s a giant. 11 ft. 0 in. in his uniform. 5 ft. 6 in. up and 5 ft. 6 in. down. Another weakness of George’s is going home week-ends to see the “only one.” This little girl has been keeping George busy for four years, at least, and we all hope that they will be happy tvhen George makes his million. George, during his summer vacation, toured the Holy Lands and when he graduates he will probably motor through Palestine with his bride in their Jew- ett after which he will probably continue his work, aiding his Dad in his mince-meat plant, cutting up. We have keenly felt George’s absence through this second semester, but he is probably accumulating as little away from college as he did here, so that’s that. Page Seventy-six t S -7 Cl AE.LA Y OU have no doubt seen a long blue great coat, a pair of glasses, a derby hat, and a pair of kid gloves emerging from E hall. The person con- cealed is none other than the great Jack Demosthenes Boyd. While our friend is slight in stature, he, nevertheless, possesses a super- abundance of voice, and a unique talent of using it. He speaks three langu- ages fluently; good and bad English and profane. Few men attempt to argue with Jack because they are unable to talk loudly enough. Jack hails from Belleville, New Jersey, a suburb of Soho. He came to Muhlenberg in ' 23 to pursue a course in B. S., which we believe he has since changed to bedology. Jack is a firm believer in eight hours sleep a day for every college student, however this is practically impossible for Jack, because Professor Shankweiler does not have that many classes a day. Jack would undoubtedly make out well testing mattresses for the Komfo people. While our friend is not the proud possessor of one of the much coveted M’s, the highest athletic awards of the college, nevertheless he has displayed his athletic ability many a time. Great credit, and honor is due him for his great game of football played at Lancaster. Jack is also to be congrat- ulated on the mean beating he is able to stand in boxing. He also bids well to capture the championship for long distance sleeping. Turning now to the aesthetic side of Jack’s na- ture it will suffice to say that Jack is a great lover of flowers. We hear that he has made several visits to nearby cemeteries in search of the rare “Hydrangea.” To say that Jack has no ambitions would be incorrect, for he has two of them. One is a fair maiden now attending a university in Phil- adelphia, and the other is to get down to the house in the morning before the milk is gone. However, in a few short years we expect to find Jack busily engaged in the oil business, and he has the best wishes of all the class for the utmost in success.

Really he has a very fine personality will- ing to do anything that is asked of him. “Bert” is taking the Ph. B. course and is also taking a part in the B. S. He is a very good student and a hard worker. Bert seems to have all of his spare time taken up with work outside of school studies, that is, part of his spare time he may be found working at Arbogast and Bastian and the remaining time is spent on Ninth Street. You may guess the rest. Bert expects to teach, in which profession he will make good. His class- mates wish him the best of luck, prosperity, and propagation.

It is rumored that he is quite a sheik, but he fails to satisfy our curiosity concerning his frequent trips to Oley. We suspect that some farmer- ette is involved. But being serious “Poss” is quite a student, a modern Diogenes seeking the evasive truth. He is interested in almost anything and this inveterate curiosity will promise him rich rewards in scholastics. However “Poss” also devotes much of his time to music. He is quite proficient in this field and specializes in the organ. We wish him the best of success and believe that his determination to over- come all obstacles will give him material and moral satisfaction in his life work. “Poss” is the assistant Editor-in-chief of this annual and has done excellent work to make it a worthy pub- lication of the Junior Class. Indeed were it not for “Poss’ the faculty section would be missing, for he just made his friend pony up and come across with the material for the Editor-in-chief.

T l RN the spotlight on this bright and shining example of cherubic innocence and angelic purity, then listen closely. Johnny’s idea of heaven is to pay a Hying visit to “Mom” and “Pop” in Tamaqua. That’s the ex- cuse he gives; but between you and me, here’s the real reason, best expressed in his own words, “When arrive, we’re pretty hungry, so we eat; then we tell a couple stories, and b y that time we’re pretty hungry, so we eat; then we shoot the bull awhile, and then we eat; we start the victrola and dance, then we eat ; perhaps we play pinochle for an hour, then we eat; before we go to bed we always eat ; then we go to sleep and dream of meat.” Johnny has two bad habits; he snores, and talks in his sleep. In the mid- dle of the night one can hear the following monologue: “I’ll raise ya two. Gotta cigarette? I’ll see ya.” He’s beginning to lose all the hair on his limbs, because he’s such a sound sleeper. “Pop” says he has to pluck at least twenty to twenty-five hairs before he’ll even budge. Johnny’s right arm is still a little lame from pulling the “Ding-dong” on the “Toonerville” last summer. The reason for the insolvency of the said Co. is now explained. Incidentally Johnny passed a pleasant summer, except for the girls. They used to pull his ears and make eyes at him so he felt too bashful to collect the fares. Every time Johnny goes up to the Traylor they hide the palm trees and lock up the silverware; otherwise, they solicit his patronage. Seriously, Johnny’s a pretty good fellow (when he’s sleeping), and is never seen without a smile on his face or a twinkle in his eye. Confidentially, I might say that he’s one of the most popular boys in school and according to present indications, bound to be- come a lawyer.

H ERE is the tenor of the class of ’27 and not a mere songster at that, but a producer of artists besides. Although this larlc numbers Captain Kidd’s parrot among his ancestors, judging by his display of vocabulary at times, he has been training the Angels with no small degree of success. He claims that this success is due to his interest in the work alone. We were compelled to believe him, when in his Junior year he became a member of the Glee Club, obtaining the positions of Student Leader and second tenor in the quartet at once. Christman was an organist and choir master for over a year before he came to Muhlenberg. He is one of the few who have turned upon the A. B. course and is greatly interested in church work, nevertheless he is not studying for the ministry. Praise to Moses! His ambition, he tells us, is to be the head of a great musical conserva- tory, which he intends to superintend with the aid of a certain Mademoiselle from his home town, Wernersville. In order to develop a foreign atmos- phere for his conservatory, no doubt, and possibly to increase his vocabulary for use on occasions where the English language is inadequate, he studied French with his characteristic tire- lessness. After two years of this hard work he became vice-president of the French Club. Christman is also a good pianist, and besides furnishing his class with music at their chapel services, has sur- prised even his most intimate friends by his rendition of numerous classics.

Why certainly he was born in Philadelphia, and what is more, one of his relatives signed the Declaration of Independence. So you can see he comes from a lineage of leaders, and the power of leader- ship has been inculcated into his very being. “Cap” led the boys through a number of successful basket-ball seasons. In football also, he was dubbed by the newspapers as the “midget half-back.” Could he tear? Remember the 1924 Gettysburg game? Delta Theta elected him to represent her in the Student Council, and it is with pride that he dons his “Ferret Hat " on holiday occasions. Spiritual- ly he was present at all the council meetings and his moral support has aided this group to pass judgment on many drastic measures. Talk about your excellent feats, here’s one that will stand on top for a long period. The East and West Pinochle Club decided that “Pauley” had held the singles title too long so they picked the night before a strenuous quiz to have the play-off of the 1925 championship. Well our noble protagonist was not phased in the least. He stepped right up and defeated “Reds” Weidemoyer, the leading contender, and on the following morning staged a winning battle against the Logic exam. Not only has “Sergeant Clymer” done good work on the gridiron, but has proven his worth as a basket- ball captain in capturing several brilliant scalps of our noble cage opponents. “Paulie” has a ready smile for all and we feel sure he will have much success in whatever he under- takes.

They spoke the same language but the difference almost reminded one of the Tower of Babel tale. After being gravitated into a third floor rear of West Berks, he began making friends and soon became an esteemed member of the Idle Hour Club. Many idle hours were spent, and also many that Louie should not have subtracted from the Dean’s daily quota. No ill results followed, however, and the knowledge gained was immense. The dramatic moment often came when Louie left the room carrying his little brush. Our friend’s interest was soon to he turned in another direction, how- ever, and for a time occupied much valuable time. But then, Yankee girls are attractive too (you must know), and this man is not exactly a woman hater. Picture then his dire distress when the mother entered the lists and vanquished our knight. But in spite of all the attractiveness of the Allentown girls “Coon” and Lenoir-Rhyne are familiar names to the postman. As a hobby, he is studying for the Lutheran ministry and while he is praying for souls his classmates are earnestly praying and wishing for his success. Incidentally, the non-fraternity group is the proud claimant of his membership, not because of signal honors in athletic or scholastic works, but because he is so dramatic and true a friend.

The Blond Beast Y ES folks, this is the boy wonder, it’s a wonder they let him live. He has the most wonderful blond hair, just ask him and he will tell you all about it. The only thing really wrong about Doc is that he comes from the home of the “famous” Athletics. He has two great problems in life — one goes to Temple and the other lives next door. Rather embarassing when he goes home. Doc is a great believer in spirits. He almost had the Botany prize in his first year but he “spirited” it away from himself. He is also the man who claimed he knew Bethlehem — all points of interest carefully explained. He took one party over, but the only thing he could find was the post office and the subway. His manly form can be seen at every football game wearing the Cardi- nal and Gray on the gridiron doing his bit for dear old Muhlenberg dash- ing up and down the field with a cornet in his hand and a cigar butt in his face wondering how he looks from the stands. But really Doc is a ha r d worker and a harder handshaker for his cal- loused hands don’t come from using a paint brush on his Dad’s L. V. T. cars, as he would have us believe. “Kid Epsom” is a man of varied athletic tal- ents favoring “skates”. He is a regular Arthur M urray on the rink but can change in a moment to a snow-plow for the front campus. We can fondly look back over his three years of colorful but not artistic existence here and see Earl before us as a cunning little blond in his Kollege Kut Knickers, frosh from that prep school of all misguided youths — Drexel. We know that you will be as popular and as well liked in Medical School as you are here, Doc, and we all wish you the best in the world. Page Eighty-four } CIA LA Leonard K. W. Deininger Phoenixville, Penna. Phoenixville High School. Delta Theta. Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Varsity Tennis (1). Glee Club (1,3). Fraternity Bas- ketball (3). Lutheran. Republican. Law. D ID you ever see this good looking lad, hailing from Phoenixville, the town having more girls to the square inch than any other town in the country, strutting about the campus or dance floor? Sure, it’s “Deiny.” Well, “Deiny” sure shows that he is used to the feminine environment, for he is always neatly dressed and has a ready smile and a kind word for every- body. Leonard came to us in our freshman year but spent his soph year at Dickinson Law School. However, Muhlenberg had greater charms for him and again we find him with us. H e can be seen almost every night about 2 A. M. strolling in from some heavy date — and they are always heavy. Incidentally he is a musician of no mean talent. He plays a wicked banjo, and tickles the ivories. We’ll leave that to the rest of the boys. “Deiny’s” chief ambition is to take up law and outrival Darrow. Anyone who has heard him talk in classes will agree that he will have little trouble convincing anybody that he is right. Let’s hope that he can also convince the fair sex that he is the one she needs. Well, here’s luck, “Deiny.” The Class as well as the entire student body owe you many thanks for the splendid music rendered for us while wait- ing for the meals at the Commons.

Business Weekly (3). Stu- dent Council. Glee Club (3). Lutheran. Republican. Lawyer. T HIS is Diefenderfer himself. There can be no doubt about that, be- cause we are all familiar with his dignified features and leisurely man- ner. He is not naturally sober ; there are times when he expands and comes to a lighter view of life, and those are the times we see him. He is as jolly as can be, and so we like him. From his Freshman year on, “Fritz” displayed remarkable business ability. He worked hard on the Weekly during his two years of service there, and was rewarded with the post of Business Assistant for this year. Out- side activities interfered with his duties there, so his name no longer graces the Weekly masthead, but we all know of his untiring efforts in making the last Sophomore Calendar a success. He rates high in his studies for so busy a man. Not only does he occupy himself with money affairs, but he also finds enough time to entertain a cer- tain young lady downtown with all the grace of which he is capable. No one need fear that he will become a celibate, there’s no danger of that, at all. On the trip which the Sociology class made to Phil- adelphia this year, we noticed that Fred was most in- terested in the courts visited there. The reason is simple ; he plans to attend law school after being graduated, and to emulate men like Solon and Hammurabi when he en- ters into his career. No doubt some day we will sit in the visitor’s gallery of the House of Representatives and hear the speaker call for “The Gentleman from Pennsyl- vania,” only to see Fred himself rise at the sound. By politics, he is Republican. This is very good. Be- sides that, he clings closely to the Lutheran church of his fathers. And lastly, he is one of the brothers of the Phi Epsilon fraternity. Page Eighty-six I s C I A Alfred Winfield Dubbs Allentown, Penna. Allentown High School. Delta Theta. Business Asst. Weekly (2). Reformed. Republican. Medicine. TAUBBS is probably the most unassuming individual on the campus. This trait is probably due to the extensive, interesting, historical, and mythi- cal tradition that has constantly attended the life of this classmate. As a mere boy we find him as a little retreating codger, running away from his playfellows to some secluded spot, there to sit by his lonesome, reading Bun- van’s Pilgrim’s Progress Historians will probably consider his past more diligently and accurately. We must be content with the chronicle of the present. A college president recently made the statement that college men are devoting too much time to scholastic activities, and consequently suffering the lack of proper social functions. Dubbs is one of the foremost men who today is helping to counteract this statement. Few men on the campus enjoy a more wide and repre- sentative group of acquaintances. His correspondence in the interest of this acquaintanceship alone reaches from the New England states to the Sunny South. Dubbs also has an interest in the potato growing section of Lehigh county. Last year in company with a few of his collegiate friends, he completed an inspection of the New Tripolitan situation. However, whatever he un- dertakes, Dubbs will prove his worth and we wish him well. Page Eighty-seven 5 2 . 7 CIARLA Alfred John Ebert New Tripoli, Penna. Keystone State Normal School. Druid. Club Basketball (3). Lutheran. Medi- cine. N EW Tripoli! That’s where the potatoes come from. And like its name- sake in Africa, there are also several sheiks up there. Here is one of them. Ebert came to us in the fall of 1924 and soon found and kept a place in the hearts of his classmates. A smile on his face is a sight worth seeing and he has a smile for everyone. Easygoing and good natured, he lives only in the present, with hardly a thought for the morrow, and he believes in letting the dead past bury its dead. Before enrolling at Muhlenberg, Ebert attend- ed Keystone State Normal School and then taught school two years, during which time he did some extension work here. He intends to teach again after graduating. His chosen held is Biology and we predict a second Dr. Bailey. Next to Biology, Ebert’s favorite subject is English (with a question mark). As a typical son of Lehigh County, Ebert fell prey to Prof. Simp- son’s drill in pronouncing his v’s and w’s, his j’s, ch’s and similar sounds which an Irish tongue finds difficult to master. Many a football warrior does not lose as much perspiration in sixty minutes combat on the gridiron as Ebert has done in reciting a few lines of Shakespeare. English, however, is not Ebert’s only bugbear. His love for History is similar to that of an ele- phant’s for a mouse, and anyone who has been exposed to one of Dr. Muel- ler’s courses knows that one simply has to know facts in order to pass the subject. To our worthy friend, the course in European History was a veri- table Sahara desert. A college man’s biography would harly be complete without paying some attention to his affaires d’amour. Like Alexander the Great, Ebert is always looking for more lands to conquer. His win- ning personality has won him favor in the sight of many a member of the opposite sex, but thus far, he has not at tached himself to anyone in particular. There was one night, however, when it seemed as though Ebert had thrown discretion to the winds. Far be it from us to say what time he came in that night but suffice it to say that the young lady might as well have given him his breakfast before sending him away. And that’s that. In conclusion let’s say that Ebert is just a regular good fellow and the best wishes of ’27 go with him when he leaves his Alma Mater. Page Eighty-eight I S 2 -r Z A d L A Charles Shanley Fisher Bechtelsville, Penna. Boyertown High School. West Chester Normal School. Druid. German Club. Lutheran. Republican. Teaching. W HILE strolling across the campus one often heard the familiar words, “What’s the hash for dinner.” Without doubt this distinguished young gentlemen, Charles S. Fisher, could be seen in our midst. The Commons made a great appeal to this lad and he answered it by becoming assistant steward. To imagine the commons being managed without this hard work- ing and ambitious young man would be an utter impossibility. Charles hails from the Sunny Side of Bechtelsville, which probably ac- counts for his frequent visits to the town. However we know that lie has not found any of the fair sex to catch his winning eye. But cheer up, Charles. A damsel is waiting and you shall receive her in due time. One might ask the question, “have you ever seen Charles idle?” With- out discussion, we conclude that he believes that an idle brain is the devil’s workshop. This accounts for his continual grinding on his text books which by no means was a necessity because Charles is numbered among the leading students of his class. Whenever one wants a true friend, please look him over. He is always generous and willing to lend a helping hand, and above all, a jolly fellow to have in one’s presence. Charles has great mathematical ability. His profes- sors know it, and consequently on frequent occasions he was appointed as a private tutor. Some day we shall read about this great professor who proved Einstein’s theory of Relativity false. German flows smoothly from his lips and some day he expects to be instructor of the same. We all wish him success and feel confident that some day he will be rewarded for the efforts that he put forth while at college. Page Eighty-nine I S 12. T CI ARLA William J. Gantert Hazleton, Penna. Hazleton High School. Druid. Class Treasurer (2). German Club (2,3). Ciarla Staff (3). Lutheran. Republican. Ministry. H ERE’S the long and short of it, gentlemen, mostly long. This popular replica of Jeff fills a big place in the proportions and affections of the Junior class, there’s no doubt of it. True as this may be, Muhlenberg can- not satisfy all his hunger for affection, or his hebdomadal flying, or otherwise, trips, to Lancaster would be inexplainable. If the hopes of the Junior class to plant the ivy in front of the Ad building, were not already destroyed, Bill would be sure to upset them sooner or later. The mystery is, how can he spend his week-ends in Lancaster and still manage to stand so high in his class — she must be a wonderful inspiration. If Bill is not a poet now, he will soon develop into a first class one — he has to compose a letter every day. He orders his stationery by the bale and is thinking of getting a private sec- retary to file his returns. Bill may be studying to become a minister but that does not prevent him from having a good time or being exposed to the process. What a lover of fun he is! He follows the principle that a poor pun is better than none and lots more fun, quoting Dr. Haas as his authority. Have a care what you say around this innocent looking gentleman, or you are sure to be the butt of one of his execrable puns. No doubt you will discover after a while that he was trying some doubtful joke on you to see if it is fit to be put in the Ciarla. Yes, his ability in this line has earned for him the postion of joke editor for the year book and we can’t imagine it in more capable hands Our lanky friend is an active member of the German Verein and the language comes so naturally to him that one imagines it is native to him. He took a part in one of the German plays given last year by the Verein and got away with it. Bill is also a member of the Druid club and one of the organization’s big claims for recogni- tion on the campus. In politics he follows the banner of the elephant, at least as long as it is in power and religious- ly is affiliated with the Lutherans. Page Ninety i s s r Cl A CL L.

Democrat. Law. T HE Emaus Sheik! We are not sure whether Joe has a better pal than his serviceable Ford or not, but we do know that he is very much inter- ested in music, and besides taking in the humdrum of his musical machine, Joe takes lessons on the harp. Most of the time he can be heard playing in Macungie, where he receives his instructions by correspondence course from Boston. We would like to advise him; that is, we who have heard him prac- tise; to practise shoveling coal. It would sound so much better especially at this season. Joe is very much interested in the dead languages. His intended profes- sion is Law and we are positive of a successful career for our dear friend. Joe is also interested in the Athletics of our college, spending much of his time as Assistant Manager of the basketball team and serves as well on the Athletic Association. He is not like a sailor, who has a girl in every port, terist ' cs of the collegian having a girl on every daven- port. His range of social activities extend from Quaker- town to Palmerton, not drawing the color line or the age limit. His favorite expression is “My oberazion.” Joe is the sort of fellow with whom one may form real companionship and makes a fine pal. He is a good student and athlete, a social man and best of all a true friend to many. We wish him the best of success in the future and feel assured of it, from his reputation as a toreador. Good luck to you Joe, we are all with you! but has the charac- Page Ninety-one 1 2 T CIAI LA T)OOR Claude! No wonder the women all fall for him. We have it on good authority that our worthy hero contemplates writing a book on beauty secrets for men. Claude has adopted a policy all his own. He evi- dently thinks that Muhlenberg students should be neither seen nor heard on the campus. His ambition is to occupy the chair in a course to be adopted by all of the foremost colleges of the country, the name of which will be “How To Cut Classes Consistently.” We wish him all success in this worthy en- deavor. He commutes between school and his home every day and each little snow, wind or rain storm is sufficient excuse for him to stay at home in the morning. We see so little of him here that no one seems to know much about his qualities or his failings. We deem it advisable, therefore, to refer our readers to “Eva” (or is it “Ada”?) who called Claude on the phone three or four times this year. We can say this, however, that he is quiet and unassuming, and when with a crowd is a “jolly good fellow.” Late- ly he has taken an interest in the radio business in his home town and when not trekking towards Muh- lenberg he can be seen canvassing the Perkiomen Val- ley for radio prospects. During the last few sum- mers he spent his time between going to school, passing off conditions, and increasing the attendance at the carnivals and fairs held round about East Greenville.

T O do this blond Viking, or rather Bethlehemite, full justice, it seems necessary to make a catalogue of the honors which Muhlenberg has to offer. Not that Johnny was seeking them, but because they come naturally to him. Handsome and amiable, industrious, and possessing that quality so much admired by all professors, Johnny finds a comfortable nook in the af- fections of the entire student body. It is duly fitting and proper to mention first that quality which our subject is most proud of. It happens to be the histrionic gift of female im- personation and the German play presented last year gave him an excellent opportunity to display his art. He attributes his ability to the painstaking and careful study he has made of femininity from adolescence up. To sav that he is bewitching in petticoats and paint is barely touching the surface of his charm. Quite in contrast to this, is the love of athletics and rough house in general which Johnny displays on occasion. He is the proud possessor of a set of class numerals won by playing class football in his sophomore year hut his pride is not strong enough to get him to wear them. His tendencies will be diverted this year by piloting the track team through its spring schedule. After we have made mention of the fact that our friend is also a two year member of the Glee Club, the Glee Club Orchestra, and the College Band, this tale must begin to savour of a fairy story but we can assure you that it is all fact. How can he help being popular? Due credit for the appearance and contents of this year book must be given to our talented friend for he has been one of the hard working staff who have made it possible. Fratern- ally, Alpha Tau Omega is proud to claim his allegiance. We feel that he has made a wonderful beginning toward success and wish him all further success in the profession which he has adopted.

M I-A-MI, look who’s here! One of the popular passengers of the Emaus Blizzard. He, with the others, blew into Muhlenberg in the Fall of 1923. He landed pretty hard, too, because the bump may still be found on the back of his cranium. But this failed to daunt the young Lochinvar, for he soon collected himself and started to dig. Since then his friendly heart has won many friends, and his head, a position of admiration in the scholastic heaven of our class. We are glad, for his sake, that there are no laws against speeding in the romantic world. He has a peculiar weakness for that species of femininity which possesses the name “Helen.” O! “He loves them in the morning and he loves them at night.” Ha! Ha! Ha! That’s good! Just a minute, “Russ”, till 1 whisper that one to the folks. He had scarcely been introduced to Helen H — , when his college emblem grew feet and walked into her hand. On the campus “Russ” is a very amiable chap. He is jovial. There is never a frown on his face, except the morning after a boring two o’clock ses- sion the night before. His keen sense of humor gets him through many close quarters. He is always ready to tell jokes (especially in Latin class). Where he gets them, we’ve stopped trying to guess. Some are good; others not s.g. ; and sometimes they are like an Englishman’s pun. We wonder where the humor lies. ou would too. When it comes to oratory “Russ” is certainly a “Crackerjack.” We admit he throws “some line,” but still he has the vim, vigor and vitality to put it across. Why! With his pep it would even be possible to sell an undertaker, a life insurance policy. But now, without kidding, “Russ” is a regular fellow and a good student. He is steady, energetic and reliable. H e is interested in all worthy causes and always ready to do his bit. Gilbert’s favorite hobby is writing plays and has wiitten several. He has a keen dramatic sense. Keep it up, Russ, and you will be an asset to the world as vou have been to vour Alma Mater! Page Ninety-four I S 2 T Cl AE2.L. A Harry Jacob Goldstein Allentown, Penna. Allentown High School.

This young man far out- shines the god of yesteryear in comeliness. We know of one fair damsel in the city of Easton who was entranced by him and he by her and when we see a faraway look in his eyes, we know he thinks of Easton. Harry came to Muhlenberg from Allentown High School, class of ’23. H e is an athlete. Nuf Sed. During the 192-1- wrestling season he nelsoned and headlocked his way to many a victory ( ?) over the lads from Bethelehem. Drawing is another hobby of his. His lecture hours are spent in sketching those about him. Our Ciarla is thankful to him for many of this year’s cuts. When his magic artistic touch is translated to pen and paper, the soul inspir- ing pipe dreams of a smoker seem like smudges in contrast to those of him. What are those notes I hear. “If you knew Susie.” It can be no other but Harry. He trombones his way through Susie and Collegiate and no one can keep his dogs from spreading around. Our post office is taxed to the utmost with letters of congratulation when he and his orchestra broad- casts from WSAN. If you have been to any home football game this year you would have seen Harry either tromboning or leading the band for the position of assistant band leader is his. The Unholy Five claim him as a member. He can be seen lamenting the fate that kept him from that memor- able visit to the Potato King. He also remembers that his bi other late one night told him of the visit of the KKK who were looking for him. However it turned out that the party was a nice one. One can hardly believe that such a young man has a weakness. This weakness is in the shape of a Stephens car. He knows her good points and tells everyone. He is also a Charleston maniac. At Mealey’s we see him Charlestoning all over the floor. A good student and a good pal is our verdict. In view of this, we wish him happiness and success in life. May he be a true Muhlenberg product of the class of ’27. Page Ninety-five 19 2 7 c: I ARLA William Btechele Harned, jr. Allentown, Penna. Allentown Prep. School. Alpha Tau Omega. Mgr.

B EHOLD, gentle readers, the Beau Brummel of the class of 1927, none other than the illustrious William Harned. From the day of our en- trance into the fair halls of Muhlenberg, we have tried to emulate this young man in all social phases, but, alas, all in vain, for he is known to be the only man in college dressed strictly to the minute and in spite of all our efforts he is still the most popular visitor at our neighboring institution of learning across the creek. As freshmen we tried to follow Bill’s footsteps, and vigor- ously we carried on our campaign to endow Mealev’s and Mike Lane, but after a few months we gave up in despair for Bill always appeared wide-awake and carefree at eight o’clock classes while we — . But in all fairness to our good friend we must commend him for his indifference to the opposite sex since last June. Of course Carmichael’s is rather far from Allentown. Per- haps the fact that distance lends enchantment might explain why daily letters now take the place of nocturnal escapades. When we search the annals and archives of the faculty in an effort to discover Harned’s scholastic attainments, we find that his activi- ties in Spanish and Math are the most striking. The fact that Bill was Professor Corbiere’s star performer is shown by the fact that his name has appeared more often than any other student’s on the monthly roll of honor. In Math class where his ready wit helped him out of many a dilemma, he gained the significant name of “Steve” for his willingness to take a chance. He is also noted as Doctor Wright’s most able logician. At present he seems to be employed as the advertising manager of Zollinger Sc Harned Co., which position he fills very ably. Bill is one of the popular men on the campus. He was one of the football managers. We wish him a happy and a prosperous future.

Our friend “Joe” arises from the “throes” of a blood thirsty card game and leaves the pinochle headquarters, places his collegiate bowl in his mouth and struts his manly form across the campus, quite unwillingly to answer the call to Fritch- man’s slave market to satisfy the desires of his hungry friends. For they crave food. When finished with his taks he throws up his hands and shouts, “Up from slavery.” Dr. Bowman, although he is not aware of the fact, almost had our friend convinced that he should throw religion, when he related with what ease some of our evangelistic workers make a living. This desire did not last long for he feared that there might he some graft somewhere and decided to take up some other occupation where he could rake in the filthy lucre more easily. Our friend we believe is going to take up teaching as a life work and it will be but a short time when his students will come to his Alma Mater. They too like their tutor will begin their college career as a “Cardinal and Grey Collegian” fiddler and end their days as a waiter in the college com- mons. But before this happens there must be a new order of things. “Joe” will never be forgotten here at Muhlenberg as a Junior Editor of the Weekly for his stirring editorial on “Too Much Religion.” We are eagerly waiting the day when the Weekly will have to publish an extra edition with his editorial on “Too Much Hash.” “Joe” is known for his wise cracks and witty sayings. He is a great believer in the theory of “inequality of dis- tribution,” for he is always fearing that he is not getting all that is supposed to come his way and therefore is al- ways desirous that justice be meted out. “H. V.” as he is sometimes termed by his friends has been very active in college activities. He was assistant cheer leader and secretary of the Junior class during the first semester, and is also a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. We are sure that after he leaves college he will continue his activity and make a name for himself. Page Ninety-seven I 2 " 7 Cl A CL L. A Walter Francis Heintzelman Allentown, Penna. Allentown Prep. School. Varsity Ten- nis (1,2). Football (1,2). Student Asst, in Biology. Lutheran. Science. W ALTER is one of the ambitious members of our class. He is always one of the first in the morning and one of the last to leave in the eve- ning. All the students who are taking work in biology know “Heinz’’ and respect him. He is the Biology Laboratory assistant and fulfills that position very satisfactorily. Anybody coming into the Lab knows that Walter is on the job. He is talented along various lines, being a good carpenter and mechanic, which makes him more capable, and enables him to keep the Lab equipment in good shape. Heinz can always be found up in the Lab during his spare hours, mak- ing some extra slides, or out on some trip collecting various materials that are constantly needed for some special exercise. Walt is also a great radio enthusiast. He builds his own sets, and tells us that there are very few stations that he cannot tune in on. His athletic ability is another of his many characteristics, but because of his long hours in the Lab he has no time to partake of the regular sports. In his Freshman and Sophomore years, he played on the class football team. His chief sport is tennis, and we often see him with a racquet. He is a booster of athletics and never misses a game. But he likes company and is always seen at contests with a female fan. “Heinz” intends to enter the teaching profession. He undoubtedly will teach some biological subject because he fairly lives with worms and beetles, with an occasional butterfly mixed for seasoning. Walter proved that he is a good teacher on many occasions when the professors could not be present. He has always seemed to have a weak spot for German but it was weak the wrong way or, at least, that was the faculty interpretation. He is always cheerful and oblig- ing, always ready to help a fellow along. He is especial- ly good in cooperation when it comes to sleeping in classes that don’t pertain to biology.

Republican. Law. T O hear this lad hailed right and left about the campus, you might think he is a prominent South American. “Tillie” is a busy man and as pop- ular as he is busy. There is one field in which his activities seem to be use- less, namely, his attempts to get past the barriers of the German exams and join the Deutsche Verein. Being born in the heart of the Pennsylvania Ger- man section, Lehigh County, Allentown and all, doesn’t make the feat any easier. Spring will show what “Tillie” is able to do in the line of guiding the destinies of the Tennis team. He generally makes some contribution to the playing ability of the squad for he wields a mean racquet. One of the first men the Freshmen learned to know was this martinet because tennis courts had to be rolled and no one was more fitted by nature for the job. It is an easy thing for our sport to see red — no not what you are think- ing about for he represents the heighth of good nature. His favorite shade is represented by an unruly mass of bobbed, copper colored or auburn hair. Just mention the subject and you can see a good illustration of what we are talking about. In passing we want to make a casual mention of some of his other ac- complishments for you know that keeping red in bounds is one. Not the least of these i s a tenacious but discreet indulgence in pony trotting — that’s rather blunt so we will say that he is a fair scholastic equestrian. The Tray- lor is the scene of his next important avocation and he always adds to the grace of the occasion. Surely not the least of his performances is the watchful care he exer- cises over his jolly chum Barnes. Some day Helwig expects to guide the fortunes of some corporation, but we feel that he is wasting his talk- ing abilities by not entering politics. Whatever field he may enter we feel that he will make a big success, and wish him well in whatever he undertakes. Page Ninety-nine CIARLA Walter J. Hendricks Perkasie, Penna.

W HO’S that walking down the street, who’s that looking so petit, all the while whistling the great American National Anthem, Sugar Plum, why that is the great “Doc” Hendricks; and has he got winning ways — we’ll tell the bright dark ages he has. “Doc” is the school physician. His medicines are guaranteed to cure all pains and ills and if these can’t cure them, his most honorable assistant, Miss M. I. H. can. This most gorgeous specimen of pulchritude has obtained a world wide reputation especially in and around New York City for possessing marvelous, gorgeous, and magnificant remedies for intriguing diseases which generally appertain to the time-honored pump. As " Doc” is primarily interested in character study we would do him an injustice not to say at least a few words about it. First, foremost, severally, and lastly, “Doc” has discovered during his intensive study of this profound subject, that, in most cases character may be likened unto a reed shaken in the wind, (we don’t mean the reed on his sa.xaphone with which he is ac- customed to perform in the College Band) and in one particular case that character is not so marvelous. “Doc,” without a doubt, is the busiest man around Musselberry. Be- sides spending thirty some odd hours a week attending classes he holds down an ordinary man’s job at the American Drug Store. “Doc” passed his State Board exams last fall and is now a Certified Pharmacist. In this manner he makes himself entirely self-supporting and also manages to acquire grades that are above the average in his class. Yes, a very remarkable chap is “Doc”. The secret of “Doc’s” success is his use of the systematic schedule of work as set forth by Dr. Wright. “Doc” has some activities on the cards for every waking mom- ent and he’s never even heard of procrastina- tion. Doc, however, always has time to be a good fellow and the only time he ever deviates from his schedule is when it is necessary to do some- one a good turn. He’s always right up on deck with the good old helping hand. Good luck to you, “Doc.” Page One Hundred I 12. T CIARLA Y OU are now gazing upon the countenance of one of the biggest men of the class, both in respect to his physical size and in the amount of work he has done for the college. In fact the first characteristic led to his being chosen to lead the best college band in the country on parade over Allentown, Bethlehem, and Gettysburg. At our football games this fall the man who, next to our oWn All-American Nick, was most discussed by the spectators was none other than Karl Henry, our drum major. Karl came to us from Keystone Normal and entered the freshman class, realizing even then that it was far superior to all other classes in college. Since his graduation from Keystone he has returned at regular intervals. We do not know whether it is his love for his Alma Mater or the fact that the road is so good that makes his affection for Kutztown so constant. Karl hails from Topton which he says is halfway between Allentown and Reading. We know that to him at least it is but a suburb of Kutztown. Perhaps that is why he is better known to his friends as Hank. Hank’s frequent wise cracks prove that the old adage “A pun is the low- est form of wit” is not true in all cases. His ability for ready response made him the most successful campaigner of all our advertising managers, and no less a personage than the Dean himself can testify to Hank’s brilliance and never failing wit. Hank has always been an apt student of Latin and Greek, and this year he has reached the pinnacle of success in those departments. He has extended even Doctor W right’s ingenuity in the field of machinery and agriculture, especially the functions of the Buick clutch. It is the Glee Club, however, which gives us the best clue to Hank’s social prowess. With his fine deep voice he took everyone in hearing by storm as his ever increasing correspondence testifies. We believe, however, that the first love is still the strongest. On account of his carefree, jolly, and yet spasmodically serious nature we predict great success for Hank in the ministry. If the con- gregation doesn’t appreciate or realize the pro- fundity of his sermons he can play his banjo and sing. Page Hundred One 19 2 7 Cl A EL L A Aral M. IIollenbach Allentown, Penn a. Allentown High School. Phi Epsilon. German Club. Lutheran. Republican. Medicine. T HIS mild, handsome young gentleman is one of Allentown’s most famous sheiks. In this particular department of the game he has proved a dis- tinct disappointment to all who looked for shyness behind his benign features. Aral is taking the B. S. course in spite of the significance of his initials. He may be a doctor some day, if his present ambition, remains, but it is not apt to. He has too much ability in the grocery business to waste, and with his scientific training he should make a rather dangerous competitor for the renowned 57. Who hasn’t seen our hero promenading up and down Chew street, with his fair lady, or driving her about in his super-power Nash? That engine of destruction has borne many a happy party to frat dances or outings, and has harbored many more on these trips. Its dare-devil driver and fair mis- tress can be expected to turn up almost anywhere and anytime. No wonder Aral is one of the most popular men in the class. When H arry Banghart was here, he used to chaperone Aral with great regularity, but in his absence the gracious grocer must take care of himself. There are more than enough to help him do it, but Aral likes to flee far from maddening crowds and walk by himself. In his studies, “Hollie” is very sys- tematic and very successful, too, as his term reports show. Over in the chem- istry lab. he can make just as vile smells as the instructor, and he can dissect a hoptoad with the grace and delicacy of Shank- weiler himself. He is the only man who knows what Dr. Wright is talking about when he men- tions the San Jose scale. Altho he is not very prominent in campus ac- tivities, he makes it a point to attend every affair held by the student body and by the Phi Epsilon fraternity, with which he is affiliated.

B EHOLD the visage of a young man who is as good as he looks! The son of a well-known business-man, an adept in the political arena, this off- shoot bids fair to emulate the success of his father. Good college standing permits this El Joven to participate in many college activities besides mere study. Although in high school a noble pigskin warrior, his college career finds him eschewing a personal active interest in athletics. However, an occupa- tion which demands his attention during the balmy .months of summer, has developed our hero into a natator par excellence, in fact, I dare say, that should Muhlenberg have a swimming team, this human seal would shake a wicked toe in any race. As a tripper of the light fantastic, he has, together with other Muhlenberg satellites, helped to fill the coffers of Sam Traylor. And, oh, do not allow me to forget the most important. He is a veri- table Barney Oldfield, and never is more content than when seated behind the wheel of his pet Gardner, an interrupted eight. This car has lots of speed, it has even been known to go forty miles an hour (just think of it, in these days when cars only make 75) and makes several big hills on high, as for instance, Linden street. Anyone who knows this gentleman is bound to like his pleasing per- sonality, and that goes for both male and female. There is a saying, “Cher- chez la femme”, and that is the case here. Well, in these days of specializa- tion, it is not necessary to seek far (yes, dear readers, she is petite, brunette, and tres belle). Of course, they are both young and have plenty of time. With a reputation as a shrewd business-man, in spite of his tender years, he has been known to squeeze a well-known coin so hard that the Indian yelped for mercy. Of course, this char- acteristic is sought for in all treasures, for that is one of his favorite capacities. A propensity for business that is even now so well-developed is bound to land our genial friend in the lap of success. His classmates wish him bon voyage on the journey of life, knowing that the port will be Achieve- ment. Page One Hundred Three John Andrew Janisak Slatington, Pemia. Allentown Prep. School. Delta Theta. Asst. Circulation Mgr. of Weekly. Fra- ternity Basketball. Lutheran. Democrat. Ministry. S OMEWHERE hidden away in the woods of Eastern Pennsylvania bet- ter known as Slatington, hails this little gallant specimen of humanity, sometimes known as “Mushie,” John Janisak. One bright afternoon, a freshman, the above named, embarked from the train with his knapsack in his hand. The first thing he did was to find a cop and inform him that he was going to be a preacher and he has been trying to convince every one since. But if anyone were within earshot of some of the lines that he recounts in his orations, they would hold a different opinion. When “Mushie " is not delivering one of his fine orations he is found bundled up in some corner. By the middle of his Sophomore year he had broken all long distant sleeping records with his nearest competitor by 2880 hours. May he never die young from lack of sleep. He can often be seen walking about like one in a daze. Perhaps it is his nature or attitude, but we believe he has his thoughts on some one of the fairer sex. However, his future is rather doubtful, but if Mrs. Whoeversheis finally bags him, there may be no doubt as to the success of our “would be minister”. et it is strange the power of women over some type of men, for example, “Mushie.” John would be a successful and prosperous student on the campus were it not for his sole idea of trying to sur- pass the former champion of the dormant class. How- ever, we do know from the report of others outside that he is a good preacher and can speak the Slovak language very well. John is an assistant in the circulating depart- ment of the Muhlenberg Weekly, but since the faculty ofttimes miss their numbers of that excellent paper, we will let you decide the reason. Page One Hundred Four Owen Jones Wind Gap, Penna. I NTO our midst came this man who has acted in the capacity of spiritual adviser to his classmates. And he has had much experience. Since Owen was twelve years old he preached before thousands of people in many of our larger cities, heralded as “The Welsh Boy Evangelist.” Therefore, the class of 1927 is indeed fortunate to have so prominent a figure among its group. And “Preacher” Jones is not only a good preacher! Indeed before en- tering Muhlenberg two years ago, he was football captain at Blue Ridge College, and also played football at Albright Prep. However, baseball is his best and most favorite sport and he is an excellent man with the mitt. “Preach- er” was much the life of the baseball team last year. The source of pep was in Jones, but it radiated to the other players and believe me, we had some fine baseball team. “Preacher” hasn’t fallen for the opposite sex. He seems rather immune, but we believe that some day he will fall and fall hard. Owen has a pastoral charge at the Bethel Congregational Church of Slatington and of course his frequent evening visits, called pastoral duties may be courting events too. That’s for some wiser sleuth to find out. “Preacher” is a minister of the Presbyterian faith and is a very competent and fluent speaker. He is well- liked among his parishioners, and also has many friends on the campus. His “carriage palace” comes in handy on rainy days. Jones is at Muhlenberg to broaden himself in his field of work and he does good hard work, because to him there is nothing like the duties of a pastor to his flock. To “Preacher”, the class wish the best of success in the service of the Master. 19 2 7 :iarla Albright. Delta Theta. Class Foot- ball. Fraternity Basketball. Track. Var- sity Baseball. Presbyterian.

Here he comes. He is warning his countrymen of danger. It’s Paul Revere-d by all with whom he associates. What a commanding personality! Well, that shows his relation to the great general. Allentown should be proud of such a historical personage. But what’s in a name? Kapp will be greater than any of these men. He is small in stature, but so is the atom, which sometimes causes terrible explosions by the production of hot air. The body and the soul are two essentials of human life. They go hand in hand. Perhaps that is why “Virgil” is so fond of nurses. He’s not as bashful as he seems to be. He falls in love head over heels with whatever nurse he meets. That’s the idea, amateur Romeo. ( ?) She saves the bodies; you save the souls. Just follow that plan, and you will have a well-balanced family and well-balanced rations. That will be a second Austria -Hungry, a dual monarchy. Three cheers for his would-be wife! “Virgil’’ will have to save many soles. Take care. Don’t get the heel. Kapp is a fine, conscientious student. He has made many friends at col- lege. Yes, a smile will go a long, long way. He is dependable, always will- ing to serve. “A friend in need is a friend indeed. " Keep it up, and success will be yours. In oratory this youthful Demosthenes is a shining light. Although he is not accustomed to “moon-shine”, yet he reflects the rays of the Son. He has stilled and thrilled many church audiences with his pleasing personality and his oratorical ability. “Virgil,” please answer this question. Is your preaching the only attraction in Monroe County? Kapp believes in reaching the goal gradually. For ex- ample, at first he traveled on foot; then he rode the bicycle, which he still does sometimes; now he drives a car. What’s next ? The chauffeure ? Without joking, " Virgil” is cut out for the ministry. He has already had fine experience in his chosen profession. The saving of the soul is his sole determination. The future is waiting for you, Kapp. Meet it. Page One Hundred Six i r :i A R, L_ A David Brown Kaufman Emaus, Penna. Emaus High School. Druid Club. French Club. Asst. Cheer Leader. Lu- theran. Democrat. D AVID is a loyal grandson of Muhlenberg. He comes, from Emaus, a town several years ago often mentioned for jesting, but now it is well known as the home of many prominent professional men. His town is proud to claim him as a brilliant jewel in its crown. He is making an exceptional record at college because of his determina- tion from the very beginning to uphold the scholastic and athletic standing of Muhlenberg. Not long after he honored us with his presence did we perceive that he had mastered Latin. And in a very short time by the same formula, studying, he displayed an exceptional skill in handling Greek. Studying seems to be his greatest pleasure for he never enters the class room unprepared. All his honest and conscientious work has certainly not been in vain, since we know that he is one of our honor men and intends to use his talents in the study of law. Unlike many studious fellows he devotes much of his time and peaceful personality to developing a cooperative spirit around school. He is one of our most enthusiastic followers of athletics and holds the exceptional record of having attended almost every athletic game played by Muhlenberg during his college career. Being a great worker in this field he was elected as one of our cheer leaders. Bes ' des the activities of this virtuous young man it would be wrong to omit that he appreciates good jokes, and stories and he delights in contributing to the jollity of the bull sessions with his powerful voice thundering a hearty laugh. In fact he has the most sincere laugh and smile of any around school. We know that there is a large seat at the heights of success waiting to be filled by zealous David. Page One Hundred Seven i 2 r Cl AB.L A Henry Miller Kistler Pennsburg’, Peima. Perkiomen School. German Club. Col- lege Orchestra. Lutheran. Republican. Ministry. W HIS! Bang! Whoa! Here’s Henry. No, not Henry Ford. It’s Henry Kistler, one of the famous Kistler aggregation. Reared in the wild and woolly town of Pennsburg, he thrived on the fresh air and romantic life of that burg. From there he came to Muhlenberg, entering the illustrious class of ’27. Henry is officially connected with the Kistler Boarding House. He holds several lucrative positions (jobs) at Kistler’s. Although he is an excellent waiter at the table, he also waits on something else, namely the women. For the latter he is still waiting. We hope he won’t have to wait too long. How- ever, if you saw his correspondence you would have an entirely different opinion. Although a bashful Romeo he expresses his love in letters circulating to various female victims in Collegeville and Reading. Of course this is giving away secrets. As to enthusiasm, it sticks out all over him. Coming across the campus at a snappy pace, having head erect and swinging his arms, he may be seen to stop with a jerk. His speech also comes in spurts. He is full of pent-up energy like a miniature volcano erupting at unexpected times. If you don’t believe it, just listen to him speaking when excited. Henry does not belong to the class of furniture polish- ers at school. He is an ardent student and is always plugging away at his books. All his spare time is spent in his room or in the library. He has no social bump. As to the finer arts, (smoking, chewing, and drinking), he is not adept. We do not know what he intends to do when he gets through college. He has tried his hand at touch-farm- ing, factory boss, and restaurant-waiter. However his most serious inclination seems to be towards the ministry. Pity the members of his congregation. We, the class of ’27, wish him a long and successful career. • I Page One Hundred Eight ■I.l.l I I. I CZ T CIAE.LA T HIS calm and pleasant face is the property of one of the happiest men on the campus. He is a man who is happy in himself. He hasn’t much to say but what he says he means. He is really a man of a few words. It took his roommate six weeks to find out he had left a girl behind him. He comes from the farm but he is far from green. Lloyd can play as good a hand of pinochle as the Lord High Mayor of Dublin himself. H e is also a great hunter. Give this man a dog and a gun and all the rabbits in the vicinity of Lebanon take a vacation. And when it comes to classes he knows his stuff. We are inclined to be- lieve that there is a great deal of midnight oil burned in 301 W. Berks; results show it. It is said when “Klein” had reached the ripe old age of thirteen months, he could speak Pennsylvania German fluently ; and three weeks later, to have mastered an extensive English vocabulary. Those who have heard him translate Latin and Greek can testify to these aforesaid abilities. Further- more, this boy has a certain air of refinement which has gained him many friends. However, there is one great mystery connected with the life of this young man. Why does he always return from home on the early train? Our hero ex- pects eventually to enter the ministry and we know he will be successful. Page One Hundred Nine I s z CM AG2.L. A George Leon Knod Pottstown, Penna. Allentown Prep. School. Class Basket- ball. Roman Catholic. Law. T HE mildest manners, and the greatest heart. Knod says: “Pottstown -i- against the World.” Your first impression of this young man is that he is too bashful to own his life as his personal property. But as you become better acquainted you soon find that he can take care of himself in a very pleasing manner. Knod is a good student, a good pal around the campus, and in the Dor- mitories he is a tenor to good works. ou say he is shy! But — you should see him with the women. There is a little girl in black, that has come into his life, and we are of the opinion that when this young man receives his “Sheep Skin,” he will say, “Well, how about a little cottage, a little family, and plenty of hap- piness ?” Knod can be seen, ofttimes, during the vaca- tion periods driving a truck for his father about the vicinity of Pottstown. He is a very conge- nial fellow, a good sport, and a favorite friend to a goodly number of his classmates. The class of ’27 wish him the best of success. He is known to his classmates as Knody. Knod’s most prized possession at present is his pipe, and his favorite way of killing time is arguing. All his classmates recognize these famous words: “I don’t know about that!” Page One Hundred Ten ! S 2 Cl A L A B EHOLD! another good man from Fleetwood. Although he is a man that goes about his work quietly, he is nevertheless one of great ability and, more than most of our students, has a memorable past behind him. Searching the records of time it is found that he graduated from Keystone State Normal School with honors and then taught in the Fleetwood High School for quite a number of years. Being a strong advocate for physical exercises and hearing of Bill Rit- ter’s fame for producing graceful “Charlestonians,” he decided at once to leave teaching and take two years of Bill’s classes. “Jim” is a man of great and varied experience. He has visited all the national parks in this country, (not all of these have benches either) and also made a tour of England, Holland, Belgium, France, Switzerland, and Italy. During the war he was in the navy and listed as an expert riflemen, and even helped to fire the shot that ended the war. Although he is an ex- pert rifleman, it has not helped him yet to sink the arrow and so he still roams about free. How could such a man be passed by? This man takes a great interest in church work and is also the bass soloist in the church choir. We wonder what is keeping him off the Glee Club. Knowledge and work make men ! Our hero is a close follower of both, and we are sure of hearing of him again some day. ,,:m - Page One Hundred Eleven ' T ' HIS sober, ministerial, unintelligent looking man comes from the east of Allentown, from that town known as Bethlehem, (not connected with the Wise Men) of the North Side where men are men but Kriedler will al- ways stay Kriedler. He is of the class of twenty-four, of the Bethlehem High School and is at Muhlenberg taking the A. B. course in preparation for the ministry. However as far as his ministerial ability is concerned, he should be quite proficient after being graduated from Muhlenberg, for his line of talk in praise of the Almighty is quite profuse and fluent. This is not the only trouble that he has acquired while at Muhlenberg for he also seems to have acquired the infatuation of the feminine sex. For now and then we hear him speak of a girl from the sunny shores of nature’s sandpit, New Jersey, which is at times the cause of his being quite sullen. However, on the whole, he is an amiable friend, although he quite often sends you to purgatory with his restless tongue. As a stu- dent of German and Latin he is at the head of his class. Thus after having elaborated on his best attributes and ascribed him to the profession of the ministry; we give him our hearty hand of success in his calling. Page One Hundred Twelve Floyd H. Lengel Shoemakersville, Peima. Schuylkill College. German Club. Lu- theran. Democrat. Diplomat. W ELL, Bill, look who we have here. “Mr. Floyd Lengel,” better known by the following, “Speed”, “Dynamite,” “Sheik, " “Puss”, “Dutch " , und so weiter. Ya, he is a real dutchman, for he is a member of the “Deutscher Verein” and hails from Shoemakersville. “Dutch” can often be seen in the company of Dasher whose home is below the Mason and Dixon line, strolling through city park trying to pick up some of Dasher’s “Georgia Peaches.” Mr. Lengel’s name has received wide spread fame in connection with public speaking and Oratory. So many requests have come to him, we are not saying what for, that he has finally consented to drop the work. “Dutch” is a noted scholar from Schuylkill Sem, at which place he ac- cumulated quite a bit of knowledge in languages. He can often be seen delving into the mysteries of Greek and Latin????? Notwithstanding the great affinity of “Dutch” and the opposite sex, he is a mighty fine and likable chap who will stand by a friend, even helping him in mischief. Do you want to know why Lengel’s parents live on a farm? Well I’ll tell you, here it is — Shoemakersville and vicinity is a wonderful place for raising members of the feathery tribe and, “Oh, those are my sisters,” is in- variably “Speed’s” answer to a query as to who the good looking girls are whose pictures decorate the mantel of his room. But don’t you think a dozen or more sis- ters is stretching it a bit too far? Listen, “Speed,” don’t tell too many of the men they are all your sisters or Shoemakersville will be overrun with college men. According to rumors and affirmations from himself, “Foreman Lengel” was running around loose in Allen- town the past summer, working around the college dormitories. I 2 7 Cl ARLA Theodore M.

A glance at the handsome and shy physiognomy portrayed above, would by no means give a clue as to the young man’s ability. Boy, when they are so shy and timid looking beware, still waters run deep as the old Sage once said, and believe me it’s no lie. “Teddy”, " Reds”, or “Murphy”, (He doesn’t care what you call him and that is the reason why he carries such a repertoire of cognomens), can well be said to be one of the best known men on the campus. “Activity” is his middle name and he never leaves anything undone when once he has started something. Even though studies take up much of his time, he still finds that his correspondence must be taken care of and so often we catch him in the act of reeling yards of epistles to some fair-one in the Panther Creek Valley. Though 1 don’t know the Sweet Woman, I heartily agree that she must be some “Pip”, and since he pays homage to her so ardently, I can easily see why the Allentown Women don’t rate, and why he seems so insensible to the beauty and quality of the females which pass the very advantageous point at 8th and Hamilton to which site I have often dragged him to acquire a lit- tle inspiration after a hard day’s work. Sometimes “Teddy” feels blue and lonesome, but instead of going out on a wild party, he yanks out his old friend the Ukelele and he sure does shake a mean one, with the aid of a Kazoo he is an Orchestra all by himself. “Ukelele Ike” has nothing on him. Basketball is another pastime in which he delights. It is due to his no mean efforts and ability that his Fra- ternity has come to the fore in the Intra-Mural basket- ball competitions. Manager Lithgow certainly has a wow of a team and Phi Epsilon Fraternity which claims his membership surely appreciates his activity very much. “Teddy” is a Science man and his ambition is to teach, my ambition is just to get a glimpse of him when in ac- tion, as for a prophecy I say that in time there will be no better instructor of our young American minds to be found in the country. Good Luck Ted. “Teddy” has also done excellent work as assistant art editor of this famous 1927 Ciarla. Page One Hundred Fourteen I sl r Cl AR.LA John R. Lloyd Allentown, Penna. Allentown Prep.

Jack firmly believes that appearance goes a long way and so to that extent always has his best side turned to the public view. Jack, no doubt finds this rather an easy job as his best side is his biggest side and hence easily displayed. Jack’s path through Muhlenberg has not been strewn with roses, as his care free, easy going manner is not conducive to high grades, but tends rather toward conditions and doctor’s excuses. However with the aid of two summer sessions and an increasing amount of work Jack has managed to stay with us and now realizes the futility of attempting to fool the faculty, so has buckled down to serious work and has become well off scholastically. Jack’s future is still rather vague there being nothing which he seems especially to favor. Law, diploma cy, and medicine have all received some consideration from him, but there has been nothing definitely settled as yet. Business seems the most likely profession for him to follow as it’s the one from which he will have the great- est trouble getting away. Whatever it is, we’d like to predict, if it’s in order, fair success, at least, as he’s pos- sessed of character and personality and we might suspect ability when he attempts to find out. Yes, Jack will get along and there’s no one to be sorry if he does. Page One Hundred Fifteen I 9 2 ' 7 Cl A L A John M. Lumley Dusliore, Penna. Dushore High School. Delta Iheta. Asst.

Upon the advent of this specimen from Dushore, located somewhere in the mountainous and sticks region of this Keystone State, our impression of his curly locks was that he was a close follower of Shakespeare. But Jack soon showed his versatility as a student of the weaker sex. By the end of his first year he had quite a large number of broken hearts to his credit. Alas, this fair specimen met his Waterloo. Shortly after his return to school Dan Cupid punctured him in a vulnerable spot. From all appear- ances the wound was deep, as he immediately dropped all acquaintances of the other sex. We wonder why he makes a knightly ( ?) pilgrimage to Ritters- ville. We hope it isn’t for a visit to the Asylum. May his crusades be fruit- ful and his freedom unquestioned. Appearances had it that he was preparing for admittance to the “bar, " but recently he informed us of his decision to enlist in the Soul Saving Corps, otherwise known as Preachers. On the Campus he seems to be the pace setter in styles, for a pair of unusual trousers are often seen guiding him around. They are very convenient, as they keep the floors of the “Ad” free from dust and dirt. Despite all these faults, Jack is well- liked on the campus and we hope to see his name in the Hall of Fame some day, as one of America’s prominent Well, Jack, here’s wishing you luck and suc- cess in your life work. Page One Hundred Sixteen A ND what have we here? Is this man or beast? It might be a man, and at times he claims to he such, but upon better acquaintance with Marsh, we would find out that he must be of beastly origin, assuming that the theory in which he claims to believe is correct. It must be admitted that he h ' mself might have (perhaps be) convincing proof. To be sure opinions will differ, but it is doubtful whether Marsh is a man; and yet we do not wish to degrade him as a beast. However, beware, dear reader! Do not desire this information from Marsh ; rather ask him how old he was when he fell on his head. Moreover another thing we should like to know, is the reason for the nickname “Mush ”. Did Marsh receive the nickname “Mush” because he is soft as mush, or because he is very capable in the art commonly termed “to mush it” with the feminine sex? But we will not criticize our friend Marsh too severely. He is a jolly, serious minded fellow and always friendly when terms are cash. He is neat and has the trait of minding his own business. Marsh al- so has a vociferous flow of language, in fact, he is well acquainted even with words not in the dictionary. This cannot be called a weakness; perhaps ability? However, Marsh has one bad weakness that seems to him an easy attainment, the habit of sleeping in most of his classes. Mavbe he studies too late in the evening The class cannot forget however, the baseball ability of this member, for he twirls a mean ball, and he has lots of pep on the diamond. We wish him more success this coming spring. Indeed, Marsh is an indivdual of individuals. He needs close watching, so step up and get acquainted. Good luck to you, Marsh. R Page One Hundred Seventeen I S 12 -7 Cl ARLA T HE picture that now greets your admiring eyes, gentle reader, represents a young man, handsome and neat. In a group of young people he al- ways has the floor, for everyone is glad to listen to his endless humorous stories. His favorite saying is “Did you ever hear this One?” and then the “ball” begins to roll. He does not indulge in a circumlocution of speech, but speaks with a directness which is occasionally startling. If the dictionary and Bible fail to supply him with a sufficient vocabulary he does not hesitate to go beyond that source. His sharp wit, however, never makes him disagree- able. Although determined and resolute in most things, he was long deciding whether he wanted a classical or a scientific training, but eventually fixed upon the former. As to his studies, they are secondary matters. He leaps over Greek and Latin fences of all heights in a most reckless way. He be- lieves in a liberal education for everybody, but seems that he might become a bookworm. Even thougn he was not able to hold any offices during his col- lege life or show any athletic ability he has the spirit which every red blooded college student ought to possess. John is quite a society man. All girls look good to him. He believes in the proverb, “He who finds a girl finds a good thing.” John is more fortunate than many of his classmates. He is quite an efficient machinist and spends most of his spare time in repairing automobiles. He also has the honor of covering sixty miles in less time than any other student. Once in a while he is called upon by the city police to demonstrate his ability to operate a car. To questions about his future work he shakes his head, telling us in this way he is still undecided. Regardless of what vocation he finally decides upon the class knows that success will be his to the full. Page One Hundred Eighteen ! S 2 CIARLA Habold B. Milleb Shiremanstown, Pa.

His gruffness of voice in times of peace and his vicious intent when in peril, prove him well worthy of the name. “Toughy.” He originates from a family of bankers near Harrisburg, as he states it, Mechanicsburg, being that imperial nearness. Who knows but that some day it may be the capital of Pennsylvania, with Colonel Miller as its illustrious mayor. Here is another little giant, a Napoleon whose capacity for soft drinks and pretzels is well nigh unlimited. It will require little force to exile him to the Lehigh Saengerbund, the palace of mirrors and pool tables. There he could indulge in his favorite pastimes, that of combing his hair and tantaliz- ing the billiard balls. After taking three years of history under Dr. Mueller, the Colonel has been moulded into a staunch Republican. Bill Ritter’s gym classes are too mild to keep up his powerful physique so Harold frequently visits the Y. M. C. A. gym downtown. He does this for one of two reasons, either to condition himself for some world title (which he will choose in the near future) or to get full value out of his membership. Harold would make an excellent theatrical producer after he graduates from Muhlenberg. His extensive study and survey of literature and drama will afford him a good foundation in this line. We hope he will never lower himself to the level of Musical Comedies or dar- ing revues; but that the tragedies of Shakespeare or the operas of Verdi will find their best presentation under his direction. Whatever career he may choose; we wish him the best of success. As to his venture upon the sea of matrimony — well to say the least, the Colonel should make a good mariner.

TT 7E just call him Sam, but many more fitting names could and often are ' given to him. He is one of these “raring to go”, young gentleman, but at that he always finds it hard to get down to some honest to God, hard study, although as we know, he does get onto the books once in a while, when he is not otherwise occupied. He is a real radio fan, and you will invariably find him tangled up in some new radio outfit, or monkeying around his Ford or his dad’s Chrysler. 1 hese cars seem to do Sam a rare amount of good, for many an hour of his precious time is taken up in speeding about town. Some of the boys even believe that Sam is training for a future profes- sion as a taxi-driver, and at more than one time he has shown himself to be a quite proficient Dobie and brought it back east with him. We heard about it, and also about shaking Red’s mit. In- cidently he ‘went west’ with our old friend, the Zuppke of freshman football at Muhlenberg. Sam is also quite a social man and gets along in real good shape with the fairer sex. Cedar Crest used to be his favorite hangout, but now she’s teaching school, and things have to be done by mail. We are looking forward to many great deeds from Sam, and think that we will hear from him in many ways. Page One Hundred Twenty I " Z2. V Cl ARLA Earl Edgar Moll Red Hill, Pemia. East Greenville High School. Delta Theta. Football (1,2,3). Baseball (1,2). Lutheran. Engineering. T HE Hero of Red Hill (not Genszler, this time) was on the home plate. Toward him came the panting runner and the whizzing sphere which meant a run or an out. It darted toward his hand, the runner toward his foot. A ball game was at stake, and — “Bull” missed the ball. This isn’t the usual story. Both as an outfielder and as a catcher he is quite the cats. He won the Gettysburg game in his Freshman year by a whale of a long hit, but last year had the misfortune to break an ankle while out in the garden chasing a long one. His football prowess is well known too, for he very capably filled a guard position both on his Freshman team and on the varsity for his next two years. “Bull” got his name by his tactics — he usually hammers the opposition until it isn’t any more. This plan of action will no doubt help him when in Engineering he tries to conquer moun- tains or plans great structures. This is his ambition— here’s to you, Irish! He votes the straight Republican ticket, except when induced by some means or ' other to follow Bernie’s White Mule, and in addition, keeps in with the powers that be, by attending the Eutheran church here and there along the way. Page One Hundred Twenty-one another of the Sellersville miscreants, has polished classroom furni- ture for three years, and has really been quite successful, as is evidenced by his recitations in Dean Ettinger’s Latin class. In fact, he is quite an artist at his work which is getting along with the least possible amount of study. Let it be known here that “Cy” is a confirmed bachelor and woman- hater. No amount of coaxing will induce him to go on a date. For an ex- cuse he always claims he hears the bed calling, whereupon he proceeds to pound his ear until late the next morning. It’s a mystery the wlay he avoids 8 :00 o’clock classes. When he does manage to stay out of bed later than 9 :00 P. M. he may usually be found engaged in a game of pinochle or in some prank, chief of which is throwing water from the arcade window. “Cy” is a great football fan and was quite a player in his younger days. Whenever there is a game in the quadrangle he is sure to be there with a crowd of the boys admiring his fine punting. One night at 10:00 P. M. the thud of a ball was heard. Upon investigation there were Myers and Charlie actually kicking a football by the light of the moon. During summer vacation time Myers finds Sellersville too small to hold him so he migrates to the mountains where he claims he gets a bath in the Delaware every day. Seriously though, Myers spends a profitable summer as physical director of a boy’s camp. Here he acquired another handle to his monicker, namely “Big Chief.” “Cy” claims he is going to study law. We doubt it very much. The freshmen, however, vouch for the authenticity of this statement. They say that he convinced them beyond the possibility of a doubt that he was the sole owner of various radiators and other instruments of comfort about the dorms. After which he put up a sales talk and calmly proceeded to accept their check for these indispensable comforts. Nothwith- standing these little tricks, Myers is well liked by the freshmen and is a popular man on the campus. Page One Hundred Twenty -two I S S " 7 Cl ARLA Ray Irwin Nagle Allentown, Penna. Allentown Prep. School. Reformed. Republican. Teaching. “ Passion calls, and I would follow.” G OOD readers, here we have one of the most important reasons for the publication of the 1927 Ciarla. If this book does nothing but show this young man’s photograph and his write-up, it still remains a monument to the noble efforts of the staff of the 1927 Ciarla. At the beginning we must tell you that Ray is married and also is the daddy of a fine, healthy boy, whom we expect at Muhlenberg in the future. Ray came to us from Allentown Prep, where he graduated from later than his class, because of the World War. As one of Muhlenberg’s ex-service men should we say, we are proud of his victories in fights resembling the Whiskey Rebellion ? That reminds us that he is also a track man and a good one as shown at the convention of Potato men in northern Lehigh county. That was one of the worst battles he was ever in, for he tells many of the speed at which they sent shells at him. We never said a word about the cocoanuts and well — I guess we’ll let that go by. However, we cannot forget to mention his athletic ability. All primed with four months of gruel- ling in training, Ray and the others of the Unholy Five awaited eagerly the coming Pagan-Minister football game only to hear that it was postponed. Then gym exhibitions were given for the benefit of the students and here it was that his fine talent was shown. All in all Ray is a good sport and a fine friend. He often aids one even to the extent of getting a “cups of coffee” when it is needed. We wish him and his family good luck and the best and most of happiness. Page One Hundred Twenly-three I Z2.

" Sap” as this honorable, dignified, young specimen of humanity is called, hails from the fair city of Sliillington, of which Reading is a suburb. Yes, indeed. " Art” is very studious, and whenever one entered his room during his first two years at college, " Sap” could be found indulging in some books (religious, of course) such as: “Simon called Peter, Thars, The Plastic Age, Bacaccio’s Decameron, and the other classics. But this year some change has taken place. He is continually writing letters addressed (Aliss, etc.) And besides writ- ing these letters he makes weekly visits home. So we are coming to the conclusion that someone or some of the “fairer sex” has captured " Sap’s” heart. We know that last year he had a great weakness for West Chester Normal lassies. “Sap” is a hard Democrat, and is good at in- terpreting questions in many different ways. He may some day be the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. But in spite of his ability he has decided to enter the ministry. We know he will make good, because he is as pious and pure as the lily. Here’s luck to him in the ministry. Page One Hundred Twenty-four I S T CIARLA John M. Nemecek Aquashicola, Peima. Palmerton High School. Phi Epsilon. Class Track (2). Ciarla Statistics (3). Lutheran.

If everybody wants anything done, all he had to do was to see John about it, and it would get done. He well deserves the name “Faithful John.” The Ciari.a Staff was greatly indebted to John for the valuable assist- ance he gave in the way of typewriting articles for the printer for them. The Staff surely appreciated his kindness. John comes from the hardest name to pronounce. Try it on your radio. His home is in Aquashicola, Pa. But it is a dear place to John, not only be- cause of his homelike attachments, but also because there is a pretty “fair” basketball player living up in those regions that John just loves to see play basketball. Now we know why John goes home so often over the week- ends. John belongs to that large group of “users of the weed, ’ and when he and his room-mate, Deininger, get together for a smoke, you have a job get- ting the door open it is so thick with the blue vapor. When John was a small lad, he had the fortune to visit the land of Europe, and sometimes will tell you some very interesting stories. John also has had some experience working during the vacation periods at the great New Jersey zinc plants which are located at his fair village of the mountains. John expects to take up surgery and we surely wish him the best wishes of success in his chosen profession. We know he is a very conscientious worker and will make his mark in future life. John is a member of the Phi Epsilon fraternity and is well liked by not only his fraternity brothers, but by the majority of the men on the campus. Best wishes to you, John.

A good nature coupled with broad shoulders, a melodious voice and soft curly hair is a combination, which neither college professors nor in- dividuals of the fair sex can resist. “Woody” vowed he wasn’t interested in the women, and we believed him and were glad. Of late, however, it was discovered that he wrote the thought upper- most in his mind upon the fly leaf of his text books as follows: Laudare non amare est. Loben ist nicht lieben, etc., and translated it into eight or ten different languages. We take it, he intends to tell the world that a man may praise a soft cheek, a slender form, or a neatly turned ankle and still remain a re- spected occupant of the bachelor’s bench. Mr. Ortt laid the foundation of his prodigious knowledge in the Emaus High School and the Keystone State Normal School. His social side was formerly developed exclusively by the P. O. S. of A. and the C. of F. and Die Yetta Boora. But now we hear, he is taking private lessons from a teacherette. Woodie did come out for football, but we are sorry to say that his faults are mostly sins of omission. Possessed of a fine voice, he won’t try for the Glee Club, playing in a band, he won’t join the College Band, and a recognized wrangler, he won’t try for debating. He will make teaching his life work and we know he will make good. We wish him all success. Page One Hundred Twenty-six I Z2. T Cl A R, LA Herbert Haigh Ozias South Vineland, N. J.

Ozias can be seen burning the midnight oil often, and we feel he is burning too much for his good. Wc feel he has missed much of the joy of social contact. Ozias is a very exact boy, and he just loves to have an argument with his ministerial friends. Shimer, with his army arguments; and Kleinfelter and Wurtz with their discourses in religion have quite a time with Ozias and his information on protoplasm. However, Ozias is a likable chap, and a hard plugger. Although he captured the chemistry prize for the most efficient work in the laboratory, still Ozias according to Dr. Wright’s spelling examination, and the class was informed to its surprise, isn’t so good at spelling. Some believe that Ozias is immune of the fairer sex, but there are others that believe the frequent visits to Quakertown are not always to visit an uncle and an aunt. That’s been pulled off too often. Ozias lives practically at the chemistry Laboratory and the Library, and if anyone wants him immediately, there he may be found deeply delving into the mysteries of chemistry. He can show you the neatest notebooks in this line you ever want to see. Ozias has a liking for a change of roommates. He is a good fellow to get along with. His for- mer roommate left him and hasn’t returned, for he is now living at the North Western Theologi- cal Seminary. You must be some roommate, Ozias. All in all, we wish Ozias the best of success in his life work. Page One Hundred Twenty-seven I S T CIARLA John Russel, Phillips Lebanon, Penna. Lebanon High School. Alpha Tau Omega.

Johnny only brought 145 pounds down with him from Lebanon in the fall of 1923 hut courage, perseverance and Tursi’s boils won for him a football M that first fall. Tursi graduated from school that spring and Johnny graduated into his end job in September from which position a long-handled tooth- brush can’t oust him. Johnny, however, is not primarily an athlete. He aims to get more than that from his college course and so we find in him the rare combination of an athlete and a student, not because he is particularly gifted along scholas- tic lines but because of those same qualities minus Tursi’s boils which earned him his first football letter. Nature’s greatest gift to Johnny was energy and he’s not afraid to spend it. The 1927 Ciarla owes the greatest part of its financial success to this same energy, as Johnny in his capacity as Business Manager, was the very model of efficiency. He combined some new ideas with the best of the old and accomplished the unusual feat of ending with the larger on the credit side of the ledger. All this is misleading, however, if it creates the impression that John is in any way in the nature of a confined old grind. That’s far from the truth. He has left a sprinkling of wild oats here and there along the fields of his activities and there was even a stretch early in the last fall when he consumed a pint every nite for two weeks. It would probably have lasted longer but on the fifteenth nite the freshmen held their banquet and the whole school went without its ice cream because of the absence of anyone to send after it. Johnny, in all his dealings is always governed bv the good old policy, “enough is enough but too much is too much.” He never does a thing to excess. So much for Johnny, he’s a fine lad, one of the best and may the gods prosper and favor him. Page One Hundred Twenty-eight Orian Rice Bing ' liampton, N. Y. 2 7 ' I AR.LA Ringhampton High School.

T) EH OLD th is tall, upright young man, glowing with health and virility, who so proudly maintains the center of our line against all comers. It is Orry himself — the best ever. Who does not remember his daring on the football field as he frustrated Lewin’s tries at goal, as he blocked kicks, inter- cepted passes and recovered fumbles, all by himself? But this is just one side of this almost titanic human. Rice is well known for his C’legiate Car, that demon of speed, strength and instability which takes him whithersoever it wishes. This vehicle has hauled many a student through devious ways. Rice is proud of it, others have plowed with it. H is nocturnal jaunts through the West End are a great mystery to most of us. So is the bent of his career, for that matter. He is to be a coach, we believe, perhaps in his own dear Bing- hamton, and when there he will vote for the side that has the best chance of winning, as all of us try to do. His re- ligion is the same as that of a famous president of our country. Delta U psi- lon of S3’racuse claims him as a brother. Page One Hundred Twenty-nine i s r CJ A R, L_ A Harry P.

A graduate of the Allentown High School, class of ’23. Look- ing at his fair profile you would immediately think him a professor. Never- theless his ambitions are well spent, being an ardent admirer of the wonderful science of Chemistry. A general statement is usually made that the greatest of men have their weaknesses, and his is the opposite sex. He has fallen in love with a beau- tiful brunette, “Viola” by name. Every evening at set of sun, Harry can be seen strutting his stuff toward her home. His radiant face when illuminated by a smile (and lit up by his gold tooth) is enough to make any girl fall for him. Everyone loves a fat man. A lesser weakness of “Fat” is visiting the Potato King near the Slating- ton Pike. While visiting here one day in company of the Llnholy Five ( Dubbs-Wirth-Nagle-Goldstein ) and Hen Wickert, he acquired the habit of shooting Indians. If you are at a loss to know what inference to draw from this, just for curiosity sake protrude your finger toward him and say “Boom! Boom!” His face is immediately darkened by an unforgetable grin. We seldom see Harry’s countenance discolored by any show of anger for he takes life as it comes and never gives a thought for the morrow. Briefly considered, he is a faithful student, a desirable companion and in all affairs ready to give a helping hand. We wish him success and the fulfillment of his hopes and reaching of his ideal and aim in life. Page One Hundred Thirty 12 r C I ARLA Frederick Kocher Ritter Oley, Penna. Oley High School.

Born in the village of Oley he hias aspired to be a great man for which the place is noted. But the fragile touch of women has misled him, as he is a regular Prince of Wales. He is known in every place from the 1 ray lor down to the Eagles’ Roof Garden. His favorite sport is watching the stage door of the Lyric on a Monday night. “Fritz” is an encyclopedia of information or walking book of knowledge. He can inform you of anything from the “Fourth Dimention” down to the “Scientific Study of Swinetics.” He is also very bright — so bright that he aspires to wear his senior mustache in his Junior year. For this we may excuse on account of his super- abundance of hair. However, his brightness runs along certain lines, for the C arla Staff had quite a job keeping “Fritz” down to business. He is at times rather indifferent to do some of the necessary things in life. But he will realize some day that one must do things we have to do and not always the things we want to do. Strictly speaking, “Fritz” is a likeable chap of the campus. We hope he will pick a good wife who will inspire him to achieve the success we know is due him.

Except for a badly battered proboscis, “Robby” certainly would fit for a double of Richard Dix. Even Maude, said, “Don’t let anyone tell you different.” Born, reared, and educated in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, a quiet ham- let along one of the numerous creeks in that state, he leaves that solitary place to matriculate at this fair institution. Now please do not get an idea that his quiet childhood surroundings show on him at college. Indeed no argu- ment as yet, where facts are of minor importance and noise the major pre- requisite, has been known to have been lost by “Robby.” During his Freshman Year, and also in subsequent years, “Dick’’ has shown his worth as an athlete. He made the Gridiron and Diamond teams to which he aspired, with little difficulty. In basket-ball, he was the main stay of the Delta Theta Intra-mural outfit, and in their games, he did justice to his reputation as a cage athlete. We were about to tell of another phase of his life, but we must check the flow of our thoughts and turn in another direction! When “Robby” receives his Ph. B. degree, he intends to return to Ridge- pedagogue in that town, and according to what he says, he is going to put some life into it.

However, let the reader be assured that this handsome mortal is innocence truly personified. Our hero at one time had high aspirations of becoming an idol of the gridiron but since brawn is more desirable in that sport than a highly developed mentality, Schick left that activity agreeing with Richelieu that “The pen is mightier than the sword.” Upon leaving the football realm, Claude annexed to himself the art of smoking cigarettes, and play- ing the chivalrous part to the weaker sex. The number of feminine hearts which have fluttered in exaltation at his advances upon them are too num- erous to recount on the fingers of an armless man. Having had but one year of Chemistry with no laboratory work connected, Schick decided that ex- periments must be performed and now we are astonished to find the average davenport satisfac- tory grounds for research on the part of our hero, with no other than the daughter of the house.

As a speaker “Winnie” could talk a wooden leg off a man. He is seldom quiet, except when in company of Someone of whom he fre- quently ta lks. Our suspicions are that “Winnie” has been conquered by the “Fair Sex” otherwise known as “Ruth.” “Winnie’s” educational career is usually taken up by a sojourn at the “Fight” where he executes his tortion upon the opposite sex. He is known to be a wonderful dancer. As a poli- tician he belongs to the “Funnel Gang.” As to his future occupation we haven’t the slightest idea and this receives his cooperation too. In that hall devoted to those who throw a mean basketball you will find a large niche which is reserved for Winnie, for his reputation has spread far beyond the limits of Muhlenberg. It is said that a special place has been reserved for him at the Sesqui as an example of unparelleled ability with the basketball. He: tries to be an all round athlete and is still remembered for the peculiar twist his tend- encies took in Freshman foot- ball and as one of the crow- chasers in the outfield of the illustrious freshmen baseball team. “Winnie” associates with the boys of the eternal triangle and can usually be found at their domicile and comes to the door with a hand of cards or a pool cue in his hand.

Because of a broken wrist or leg or for some other reason, certainly not lack of ability, he failed to make the team but of course in track his good came out and now every week-end sees Dick out on the field.

O NE of the greatest expatiators ever known to Fair Muhlenberg was a student by the name of Sharkey, but not Charles Ellsworth Sharkey, the young gentleman with whom this dissertation has to deal. But carefully mark these fatal words, it runs in the family, for the Sharkey first mentioned was Harry, graduated in ’21, famous brother of our Charley, and in those days noted as the possessor of a “line”, on which could be hung an awful wash. Strange as it may seem, Charles seemed at the beginning of his college career to be the direct antithesis of his illustrious brother, for he ran a close second to the proverbial clam. However, what he might have been, and what he is, brings us back to that fatal word, remember. With his advent into the more complicated college life, that is emergence from the lowest form of animal life, namely freshman, Charley has begun to show signs of coming out of his shell of reticence, and now ' as a Junior is rounding into form. Kis- met. For further information see Dr. Wright on the subject of acquired characteristics. Anyway, forewarned is forearmed, and if you don’t have enough sense to avoid being talked to death, stay away from Charley by the time he is a Senior. Speaking seriously, if that is at all possible, this promising Muhlenberg graduate-to-be, first saw the light of day at Delano, Schuylkill County, Penna. Having attended the Delano and Mahanoy Township high schools, the one bright, outstanding point of Sharkey’s career is that he had the good judgment to come to Muhlenberg. But even here I suppose that a good deal of that credit must revert to that noble brother above-mentioned. Our brown-eyed hero is a member of Delta Theta fra- ternity, is an independent voter (I’ll say he is, at a dol- lar), and belongs to the Reformed Church. The subject of our discourse has set his cap for indus- trial chemistry (here this darn heredity comes in again) and is slated for all kinds of success in his chosen field, for posterity tells me so. Sharkey is one of the best-liked men on the campus, and to the last man, every classmate wishes him Bon Voyage on the journey of life. Page One Hundred T iirty-se-ven 19 2 7 Cl ARLA Charles J.

Every Saturday evening we see this young man strolling towards G Hall on the stroke of twelve in the uniform of a Beau Brummel, but this time with a more broken and hesi- tating stride. Mountainville surely must have some latent power stored up somewhere that could thus change such a powerful man. Last year our friend, who likes to reduce, was out for the wrestling team. He liked it so well that he not only practiced at the regular times before supper but some- times after supper. Shimer is always ready for an argument especially on military subjects and many heated arguments were carried on last year with “Bill” Seaman. Shimer is very seldom seen loafing on the campus because he is either studying Latin and Greek or trying to learn the mysteries of pinochle and the latter he finds especially elusive. We sincerely wish Shimer the best of success in the ministry which he has se- lected for his future vocation and also in whatever venture he may go.

S OMEWHERE past the middle of the Junior Class roll one encounters the following legend, Slemmer, W. F. M. To the unfamiliar that means nothing, to the partially familiar it might be mistaken for West Filly Man as that’s where he hails from, but the true meaning known only to the inti- mate is Winfred Francis Maximillian. Conjure with that. What a rage his father must have been in at his christening. Out of all this maze of names somehow, unaccountably, has emerged the nickname of “Ben”. That makes the puzzle complete and there is no justice. “Ben” entered Muhlenberg in the fall of 1922, but at Mid-Years a slight misunderstanding with the Faculty caused his banishment. Since then Ben has come back strong and selected unto himself a choice seat among the honor group and is at present one of the best students in the class. He has acquired his high standing by combining with a large amount of natural ability a larger amount of hard work and so we have him a student. And now we touch on the held of his greatest proficiency, that of athletics. Four times has Ben won his football letter and many times has his learned toe changed bitter defeat into glorious victory for old Muhlenberg. He’s a good bet anywhere past mid-held and sure death inside the thirty yard line. A better drop-kicker would be hard to find anywhere. “Ben” is also a better than average college ball-player. His work last year behind the bat, was such as to warrant attention from major league ccouts and a try-out with the Detroit Tigers awaits him upon graduation. And that isn’t all. Should “Ben” concen- trate his energies on track activities he could become more than a passable runner. Last spring in an emergency he ran less than a 53 quarter which is indeed some stepping. And so we have him an athlete. In addition “Ben” is first and last a good fellow. Al- ways quiet and possessed of a rare wit that is enough to put him over in any crowd. So here’s to good old “Ben,” student, athlete and gentleman. Surely the elements are mixed in him. Page One Hundred Thirty-nine I 2 T : I A R. L A Dana H. Smith Pearl River, N. Y.

The bright man of the class appears — bright, as far as his hair is concerned. Yes, his hair is the reddest of auburn. And he is so bright his mother calls him son. One girl calls him “Ben Turpin " but we call him “Bricky.” Our rusty hero first saw the light of day in the city of New VoT. His favorite pastime is talking. He talks a lot, but says nothing. His reputation of talking the face off an eight day alarm clock is not yet challenged. We be- lieve he will finally land a job in a band where he can blow. “Bricky” has travelled extensively, but not so expensively. He is one of the few lucky fellows at college who drive their own cars. The “car " being an old “chevy” — too old even to be coliegiate. The car was the result of a cashier’s job at Central Park. “Reds” cannot be classed as a student. He is verily a scholar. His favorite study although not his favorite “Prof " is French. Besides French, he is known to be a math shark claiming already to have solved the fourth dimension. “Bricky’s” favorite sport is going to church, this when he needs spend- ing money. When he is not broke he amuses himself by breaking the hearts and feet of the better sex at the Hotel Traylor. es, he does rate with the ladies. We wonder whether those three letters a week from Kutz- town, mean that he will eventually have a fair school teacher for a bride. In that case we con- sider the girl lucky for “Da ' n” is a wonderful pal to have. His winning smile and talking ways have won him many a true friend. His intended profession is Law whether it be lawful or not, and in the future and in his career we wish him success, God speed and good luck.

During the summer vacation periods, “Snitz” can be seen acting in the capacity of playground supervisor, which position is a coveted one for George and he is a capable young man when it comes to handling people. Strange as it may seem, this position is very exciting at times, and it was for our hero, for once during his labors he met his first love and that was the reason for his soberness about the campus one fall upon his return to his Alma Mater to resume his studies. His most interesting subjects during his college course were physics and chemistry, and into these he delved deeply into their mysteries. Woe betide anyone in East Berks who should make any loud noise when “Snitz” was studying, and particularly the freshmen. “Snitz” is remembered most for his excellent football ability. He performed several remark- able feats on the varsity line in many games. He is surely a plucky player with the pigskin. We shall never forget the hard right he made against Buck- nell, the last time our team played that awful ag- gregation. George is also a star in track events, and was good in the broad jump. Wherever he could, he would try his level best to fit in. “Snitz” has a “Hello” for everybody and an amiable disposition that made everyone who knew him feel they had found a friend indeed. We wish much success to our worthy friend in his chosen profession. Page One Hundred Forty-one I 2 2 T CIARLA J. Henry Specht Pottstown, Penna. Perkiomen Prep. School. Druid. Ger- man Club.

This fine specimen of manhood before you is not a hero of the gridiron or of the court, for the fates were unkind in gifting him with such a Lilliputian stature. Not to he outdone in the race for college fame, Henry seized upon his opportunity and adopted Richelieu ' s maxim that “The pen is mightier than the sword.” It has happened thus that within Specht’s three short years at college, he has become an eminent junior editor of the Muhlenberg Weekly. Henry is by no means pretentious but, on the other hand, his clean per- sonality is felt everywhere on the campus. In addition to being handsome, Henry is gifted with an unfathomable depth of dry humor. A new era of wit and wisdom rivaling that of Mark Twain’s time will have dawned upon this universe when Henry publishes his book entitled, “Sly Sayings” by H. Specht. Behold him as student librarian silhouetted against the background of forty thousand dusky volumes, oogling his eyes at the fair Saturday coeds. We beg your indulgence once more dear reader for the almost unpardonable mistake of having slighted the interests of our freshmen friends by forgetting to mention the activities of our contemporary in the Student Council. His office in that austere body of enlightened gentlemen, is one that inspires palsied fear within the minds of the verdant striplings, being that of secre- tary. His hobby seems to be that of meting out punishment to the offensive yearlings and may the gods look with pity on that green individual who fails to report on the football field or tennis courts for work. Henry may be a trustworthy ferret for the Student Council, but he is still in a quandary as to who the in- dividual might be who performed the unpardonable sin of purloining his mattress. I here is certainly some truth in the statement that women and pinochle are typical ideals to J. Henry " , for it is evident that neither are quite attainable on the part of our hero. Henry is still undecided as to his life’s voca- tion, but be it what it may, our fellow student is certain to succeed and triumph. Page One Hundred Forty-two 12 . “7 A G2.

TTAVE you ever seen a very businesslike person resembling the accompany- : A ln £ injustice, who seems to be at all parts of the campus at all times? Heeltaps you have noticed during our football games this same person, close upon the heels of our varsity whenever they enter, or leave the held, and al- ways heavily laden with water buckets, etc. Well ! for those who are suffer- ing through the author’s, poor attempt at biography I will say, that you saw no less than Doc Sprenkel, one of our acting Assistant Football Managers, football is but one of “Doc’s” many recreations, as he always enters upon anv campus activity with great enthusiasm. Although “Doc” now claims Allentown as his home he is never so happy as when he meets an old friend from, “Ye Towne of Yorke.” And often in vacation time his feet will turn toward this part of the State. It is rumored that this is all due to the fact that York will some day boast of being the birthplace of a leading biologist. “ Doc ” can he seen doing his stuff at the Colonial, P. S. H. D. or Mealeys or any place where they need a good flute player, a surveyor, ' or wherever there’s dancing and an abundance of the fair sex. Yes! it is quite evident that Doc is quite the little heart breaker and it is whispered around that one of his favorite evening pastimes is a 9 o’clock date. Coming to the more serious things in life Doc is one of the most active and popular boys on our campus, and his support of any activity is always appreciated. He always works just as hard as he plays and the result is that he is also one of the leading students in his classes. Well ! “Doc” here’s wishing you luck in all things you undertake.

T HIS may be true in some cases, but not so with “Art”, at least he pos- sesses no trophies to prove many conquests. He doesn’t even display the picture of a pretty lass on his mantelpiece. However, he may have a good excuse for that, either he is too busy or too bashful, both are very good rea- sons. Perhaps this is a good thing for “Art”, for when such inexperienced fellows fall it is usually with a thud, and such a fall would seriously interfere with his intention of becoming an honor man, so we advise him to keep under cover as much as possible, for should any of these pretty Allentown Mammas s ucceed in throwing their hooks into “Art,” goodbye “Art,” Honor Roll, and everything. Who can look into his handsome visage without thinking of the re- semblence and characteristics he bears to all the greatest men in the history of mankind beginning with the Missing Link. “Art” is a man of affairs at Muhlenberg and holds many important and responsible positions. He is Cheer Leader and some think since his most favorite position is sitting down, that he makes a better chair leader, but even at that he has the pep of a real leader. He smokes good high-powered cigars, but their source is question- able. “Art " is a rough old cuss, which is evidenced by the number of broken chairs in the room, also by his razor and mirror. His name translated in good Irish means “undaunted” and in German “unappeased” which may account for his wonderful appetite, but that’s not his fault. He is both bruiser and boozer for the German Club and holds the office of Secretary in that order. Ever since he became associate editor of the “Weekly” and has written about men and things, he has been forced to wear shin guards and shoulder-pads. In politics “Art " belongs to the party that bids high- est, and passes the best beer, he stops at beer because his head won’t stand anything stronger. In religion he is affiliated with the Lutheran Church, because all the Profs, are of that denomination. Taking all in all “Art” has a good-natured mien, but at that not such a mean boy.

TVEWEY is that insignificant undersized specimen that walks around -L ' the campus as if he owned it, bullying the freshmen and threatening to beat up the men on the football team. He is a Brooklynite but boasts of the fact he hails from Belleville. Exactly why we cannot tell, but it is the general belief that it is because his better half lives there. “Shirley” has taken much interest in this boy since his freshmen year in high school and was in- directly responsible for his graduating with honors. “Dewey” is one of the most popular “halfpints” on the campus and is also quite a scholar. Spanish is his favorite study and will eventually lead him to South America on his honeymoon. Chemistry comes next and it is said that as a chemist he is an excellent bottle washer. He is interested in athletics although his dwarfishness prevents him from taking active part in the sports. Last year Slemmer coached him in the art of drop-kicking but “Dewey” will never realize his ambition by beating Lehigh with one of his boots. His ability to kick may come in handy after he is married and his wife starts taking advantage of his size. He thinks he can handle women in spite of his lack of red corpuscles and maintains that he can lick his length in apron strings any time, using his dogs and dukes only. His career isn’t definitely determined as there are so many outside in- fluences which may direct his steps. Already he is a musician of fame and in this branch of aesthetic nature he will no doubt make a name for himself. This would make a balanced and beautiful combina- tion in his home as “Shirl” is quite an artist. Fate decrees that “Dewey” and “Shirley” shall pursue their ideals together in music, art, and oil in South America where their Spanish will help them get the most out of their indefi- nite sojourn.

T loves her in the morning and I loves her at nite and I guess he loves her all the rest of the time hv the way he talks and truly our friend is some talker. No matter where or when you see him he is talking and since he re- turned to school this fall he talks on only one subject. He tells everyone about the advantage of Long Island and also the girl (singular). Bob, for it is none other than Windy Wheeler of the Queen City, has always held undisputably the position of sheik of Muhlenberg. And even though he says he has found the only girl we still find him pestered with letters and tele- phone calls. We wish the Long Island girl the best of luck but she has an awful bunch of competitors. Bob’s heavy line has won many friends for him both male and female. If you ask the male friends about him they say, Yes, Bob is a fine fellow but he likes to throw the hot air. But ask the girls and they breathe it to you nice and low, He’s wonderful. Bob is afflicted with a terrible dis- ease. Every one gets it, many have it, and those that don’t are missing half their college life. It is known as dancitis.

Although hailing from such an out-of-the-way unheard-of place as Tylersport, “Whitie” carries his six feet of good looks as though he had spent his whole life in college. White is a good sport and has many friends on the campus. Have you ever heard of the three muskeeters? Well, we have, but at last West Berks misses this inseparable combination. White is the absconding member of the triumvirate having moved to the Phi Kappa Tau house. No one is more active in college activities than our sorrel topped giant. Last year when the I. N. A. was in conference here, he made quite a hit with our fair friends from Cedar Crest and did not care how much gas he used traveling to and fro from cur sister institution. Although not taking the ministerial course, he is quite an enthusiastic worker in the Muhlenberg Christian Association. He also showed up well in his position on the Ciarla Staff and with his partner Geissinger did splendid work in compiling and arranging the write- ups for our class. Aside from these activities, “Whitie” has been active on the baseball squad and has been one of the scrub managers in football. He is also a ten- nis and golf enthusiast and with the ap- proach of spring the campus will again ring with his piping “fore”. “Whitie” engages in his studies just as arduously as he does in other activi- ties. If he continues so, we can pre- dict only the best that the business world may have in store. Page One Hundred Forty-seven 19 2 7 Cl A CL L A Henry Arthur Wickert Allentown, Penna. Bethlehem Prep.

I’ll have to put the damper on your hopes since “Hennv” is already a Bene- dict, yea for a goodly number of years. At the end of the day you can see “Henny” dashing across the campus to get the car which takes him downtown to “Mom.” “Henny,” as he is best known is one of our ex-service men, coming from Bethlehem Preparatory School where he was graduated after his discharge from the army to Muhlenberg and we are sure glad he did. “Was he in any battles?” Just ask him about the Battles of “Vin Rouge,” “Vin Blanc” or the “Taking of Cognac Hill;” where the shells came thick and fast, and only a few survived the battle. Whenever there’s a group of fellows crowded around one of the tables down in the Rest Room you can be sure that " Henny” telling the boys a story. Did you ever hear the one about the “White Horse”, “Henny” tell ’em that one. Who said that married men do not care for dancing, well just take a peek in the Traylor some Saturday night to see this boy do his stuff; I mean with “Mom”. Here’s where the dirt comes in. It is whispered th at “Henny” is greatly interested in potatoes especially in the northern end of Lehigh County, where he is also noted as a track man rivaling Charlie Pad- dock. He also belongs to a “Night Club” down in Washington, D. C., but you must ask “Nick” Borelli about that. Laying all fun aside “Henny” is one of our best students and after graduating from Muh- lenberg expects to enter Foreign Trade. We know you’ll make good so here’s wishing you and “Mom” the best of luck. Page One Hundred Forty-eight I © 22 T CIAB.LA J. Carroll Wilkinson Blandon, Penna. Fleetwood High School. Druid.

One of them is the man above. “Wilk” has a good tenor voice. It wasn’t discovered until his Junior year and that accounts for the reason he didn’t have a girl back home until his third year, for we believe he was one of those who sneaked beneath my lady’s window and sang his words of love. Yes, “Wilk " has a girl now and often he goes home over the week-ends. When he returns, everything is blue for him and we suppose he has had a wonderfully good time. Carrol is an athlete too. He played baseball and basketball on his High School teams, but he hasn’t as yet come into the limelight at College in these sports. He is, however, a prominent member of Christman’s quartette which often renders several selections at meal-times. We have the best wishes of a promising future for our friend “Wilk. " He hails from a small village near Reading and during his earlier years of schooling played a prominent part behind the counter in the village store, where usually the great men get their start. “Wilk” isn’t heard of much on the campus and is seldom seen except in company with his staunch body-guards, Neely and Shick. You see, he needs just a bit of watching as he is just a-stepping out, and his body- guards are very capable of handling “Wilk.” J. Carrol is usually a quiet fellow except when spring arrives and then the swish of a bag of water from “E " hall plays another role and “Wilk” usually is the originator of the swish of the water, of the water in the bag, of the bag that fell upon the person below, walk- ing beneath the window. Carrol is a likeable fellow and will do his bit toward the uplift of human society everytime. The class wishes the best of success in life to this classmate.

U TERRY” as we all know him is the real worker of our class. He is also J the college’s watchman, and he has proven to be a careful caretaker of the new buildings. The students owe much to Jerry for their neat appearance, for he was in- strumental in getting the clothes pressed and repaired at reasonable rates. Not only has “Jerry” been successful as a handy man about the college, but he filled quite an important place in our gridiron line as tackle. We shall never forget with pride the fine and noble work he did for us in our hardest battles with our football foes. “Jerry” is a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and is a favorite to not a few of the students on the campus. When it comes to having dates with the fair sex, “Jerry” isn’t a back number by any means, for he can be seen “a-sheiking it” rather regularly over the week-ends. We are inclined to believe he has a “steady.” “Jerry” expects to travel to the unknown lands somewhere. He prob- ably will be a splendid superintendent of some large concern some day and we surely wish him the best of success, as he graduates this year. The reason for our statement that “Jerry” expects to travel we believe comes from that old saying : “ The brawny air and the salty sea. Ever shall be the life for me.” So since “Jerry” was once a sailor boy, his love for foreign lands lies close to his heart. Good luck to you, “Jerry.” Page One Hundred Fifty A shark for sharks would be the best appellation for this young follower of the B. S. course. His fame has spread far and wide for his aptitude in tracing Doc Wright’s cranial and sympathetic nervous system, but this is not the least of his voluminous intellectual capacities as Dr. Bailey and Prof. Shankweiler can testify. A peculiar thing about this man Wirth is that he does not seem to mind the odors that fill the lab. Report seems to have it that part of his early training has fitted his nose to withstand anything. Contrary to the popular conception, Gene has proven that Adonis did not have light hair but that it was black and of course, curly. Gene hangs out with the rest of the Delta Theta boys and can always be seen by the side of Sprenk and Wickert. Gene is a popular supporter of the gentle art of syncopation, and at the Delt dances he can be seen doing his stuff in company with a “someone”, in good competition with the best of them. We have heard reports that Gene is quite an explorer but his explora- tions seem to have about the same results as those of Cook. It seems that once upon a time, he and a few of his trusty companions were part of a great and destined venture ; but like a number of other well intentioned ventures it proved that the winds of chance, combined with a few natural causes, were sufficient to rapidly dis- perse the expedition. Gene seems to be getting along alright in school, and we believe he will graduate with the rest of us; if not for excellence, at least because they no longer want him around this place.

T HE Class of 1927 must have representatives from all over the country so the metropolis of Schnecksville sends their delegate, Johnny Wotring. This is a Buffalo city and John can tell many weird tales of Buffaloes in the spring. Johnny is very much interested in poultry and since his father owns a very popular hotel he serves roosters to “chickens.” It may be that he also helps a certain nurse at the Hospital to satisfy her hunger when she takes a trip out on the Slatington line. As a hobby, besides poultry raising, he amuses himself by growing scentless skunks and we hear that they are centless also. John knows all about nature and can tell about all kinds of birds and plants. Wotring is a very quiet lad and sincere in his work and always “pulls” the good grades. No doubt this is the reason he is such a good friend of Prof. Kistler. In Physics also he has developed to be one of Prof. Allen’s prodigies. Besides enjoying the carving of animals in the biological lab. he enjoys tennis and baseball. Sometimes we wonder at football games, which he is more interested in, the game or the young lady who accompanies him. Wotring is a regular patron of the Colonial Theater in the afternoon and excuses him- self by saying that he is waiting for the Slat- ington car. He is a commuter of course and seems to enjoy the early morning rides. Our predictions are that John will be- come a great Professor of Science and also the life partner of that “little woman.” Page One Hundred Fifty-two I T C l A R, L A John Cassel Wurtz Norristown, Penna.

No doubt you have often seen this young man hurrying to- wards the “Ad.” Building, wrapped in thought, with his old favorite jam- med between his teeth and laying down a smoke screen of “Bull Durham’s” best. Our hero would make a good President for there is ample evidence that he would suffer no paralysis of the hand, because his frequent practice of this art has developed for him an abnormal grip. In addition to being a very busy man around the place, Wurtz can al- ways find time to share someone else’s troubles and he proves a very sym- pathetic auditor. Being a student for the Ministry, John believes in early associating his activities with that profession which is his ultimate goal. We may say that Wurtz is one of the busiest men on the campus, being engaged in M. C. A., Ciarla, Weekly, and Student Council work. Wurtz is rhe Editor-in-chief of this book, but despite all these activities he always finds time for the fair sex and when one hears him speak of “the little lady” we are sometimes tempted tO ' believe that the plural form would be more ap- propriate. Wurtz has a great liking for room mates of varied dispositions. After tiring of Wilkinson’s singing, he moved over to Seltzer in order to get the philosophical side of life, and at present he is developing in “gym” under the coaching of George Lawson. Next year, in order to get the final side of life he will no doubt be rooming with one of the “sheiks” of the campus. Wurtz is a man who will without doubt make a suc- cess in the Ministry, and he has our best wishes for a happy future. We also wish him the best of luck in the field of matrimony, and hope his troubles will all be lit- tle ones and plenty of them.

Lutheran. u r H ' yes, I think so!” How often have we heard those words from our V- friend from Japan. Yoshio came to us from the Tokio University, in our second year and proved a good student. His amiable disposition and pleasant smile won the hearts of many a student on the campus, and he was liked by all who came in contact with him. His favorite sport was playing tennis and those who played with him knew that he was competent with the racket, and a skillful player. Yoshio 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 at Muhlenberg. However, it seemed he was not to stay long with us, for in the fall of 1924, he was stricken ill with pneumonia. He spent several months at the Sacred Heart Hospital, with a short interval in the Wernersville Sanitarium. Then on March 5, 1925, he was called by death to his eternal rest. Yoshio was a Christian and baptized a Luther- an. He was, while attending Muhlenberg, a regular attendant at Christ Lutheran Church. All who knew him on the campus, both faculty and students alike, were drawn to him by his frankness and pleasant and happy disposition. He had the greatest respect for everyone here. He enjoyed his visit at Muhlenberg College, and could often be seen mingling with the stu- dents in the dormitories, telling about his expe- riences while attending the University of Tokio. oshio’s mother still keeps in correspondence with several students on the campus who were very intimate with this worthy friend from the shores of Japan. Page One Hundred Fifty-four 19 2 7 5 Cl AC. LA M EMBERS of the Junior Class, we have been exceedingly fortunate in securing this young man’s portrait. Although he is a member of the Senior Class, we welcome him in our midst. This eager and enthusiastic student received part of his training in the Keystone State Normal School. After graduation, he spent the greater portion of his time training the young minds of the future generation. The remaining time he however, did not flitter away but like a hard worker, en- tered Dr. Wright’s School of Education, and in the fall of 1925, the faculty considered his credit equal to any Senior college man and consequently al- lowed him to enter as a senior. But poor Harold had to wear Freshmen Regulations for the first semes- ter. And if there ever was a green Erosh, Harold took the prize. At least Harol d h as the honor of being a freshman and a senior the same year. Yes, Harold is aware of the fair sex. We know that he attends dances quite frequently and how the members of the op- posite sex love to be swayed by his charming ways! Beware, Harold, lest you become too free. Not many members of our class had the privi- lege to learn the good qualities of this senior. He had been a day student all year and after his work in class was completed he rushed to his home town in his speed wagon. Consequently he re- mained a mystery to the boys. Probably some blue eyed damsel was waiting to greet him ! Harold taught school two years and wishes to continue in that profession. As a teacher we know he possesses the ability, and we wish him the best of success.

The second night of school the erstwhile sophomores held their banquet, having as their guest several officers of the Class of ’28. The banquet, however, did not appease their appetite for pleasure at the expense of the freshmen, and we were obliged to spend the night and a large part of the following day in collecting beds, trunks and other personal belongings which the playful sophs had mislaid. In the scraps our weakness lay in our disor- ganization, but through the new system insti- gated by Coach Wood we were able to wrest enough points through victories to allow us the use of the steps of the Ad building. A privi- lege of which we were very proud. The various scraps and encounters with the sophomores had the effect of rubbing off a good bit of our greenness. It was not long before the class of ’28 became noticed for other activities. In the football field we were exceptionally well represented, over half of the varsity being members of the Class of ' 28. Likewise the Basketball, Track and Baseball teams showed a healthy sprinkling of Freshmen. Scholastically we prided ourselves in being just a bit above the average of Fresh- men Classes. The Debating team and other scholastic activities were backed almost entirely by freshmen. The general average of the class too gave evidence of Scholastic ability. In spite of the fact that we were accustomed to wearing the dink and to carrying matches we longed for the time when we could discard our regulations and stand on equal footing with the other men. There was just a little feeling of submission that made it impossible to enjoy the freshmen year entirely. With the inauguration of Dink Burning Exercises we passed into that realm of happy sophistication known as sopho- moreship. As sophomores we started with a bang. The poor freshmen who doubtless had not heard of the fistic abilities of the “Wearers of the Green from Old Erin,” were subjected to humiliating defeats by our outnumbered class. Sheer determination to reve ' nge our defeats of the year before led us to victory in all the scraps. The pole fight was a walk away, the banner scrap a give away and the football game a runaway. The greenies simply weren’t in it with the plucky sophomores. The new regulations inaugarated by our class proved more in keeping with the spirit of Muhlenberg College and we as sophomores deem it our duty to see that they were carried out. In order to keep alive the spirit of rivalry (such as it was) between Page One Hundred Fifty-nine the classes we decided to hold our banquet in the Spring when the class spirit was at low ebb. This had a dual advantage for it kept alive the friendship within the class and the antagonism to the Freshies. The hayings of the freshmen and the numerous cries for water on a pleasant spring evening gave evidence of the success of the banquet. We, as sophomores maintained our standing, scholastically and athletically. As we move higher in the realms of College life we hope to continue our activities and if possible even increase them for the glory of our Alma Mater, Muhlenberg.

Bow- wow.” The deep guttural bark of the German police mingled with the high pitched, almost shrieking noise of the little pom-pom. The scene was well laid. The silver moon cast his bright beams on a woeful scene. Men, as if transformed by Circe’s wand, barked at the moon. But the secret lay in the apparel of these strange beings. Lo, a bright green necktie and a lit- tle dink with a green button adorned each and every “barker.” “Louder, Frosh,” came the cry of several unworthy individuals with persuading clubs in hand. The performance continued until at last a prayer for rain offered by a meek and tamed green one was answered fluidly. This is but the woeful account of what happened th at second night after our arrival. But, unchristianlike, we thirsted for revenge. But the Fates counted us out. The Fates began counting when we endeavored to break an “organization” in the pole fight. Fighting gallantly but in vain we, wearers of the green, lost to the better or- ganized Sophomores. The Fates still pursued us when our football team, which later felled many a more valiant foe, went down to defeat before the surprise attacks of the Sophomore team. Undaunted we still hoped to organize well enough to win the final “scraps.” After a minute and a half of a seemingly hour long struggle, our banner bit the dirty dust. However we were in part compensated when the Sophomores by their special spies found we were to hold our banquet. All available Freshmen they gathered into one room. The city streets were patrolled. These sophisticated gentlemen were completely “fooled.” ' Our banquet was held at a later date and without any interruption by these gentle- men. The banquet was well enjoyed by all of us. Our class is excellently represented by its football and basketball teams. Both squads have won a large majority of their games. Toward the end of the seasons both teams had become almost invincible. Scholastically our class fell slightly below the normal. But a marked improve- ment occurred after the first three months when we found ourselves. Our shortcomings, defeats, and successes, we hope will only aid in the develop- ment of the best class Muhlenberg has seen, 1929. We hope that we will aid in the building of a Greater Muhlenberg by bringing her additional glory and honor. - — John Mattes, Historian.

Page One Hundred Eighty-four X N 1912 Muhlenberg College responded to the demand of a few local teachers and organized courses on Saturday for their benefit. In this way the teachers felt that they could improve their preparation for the teaching profession without leaving their present positions. The number of teachers taking advantage of this work increased very slowly until the change in the school law of 1919. The registration for 1912-13 was only 32, while in the Fall of 1920 it had in- creased to 255. The largest enrollment was in the Fall of 1925 when 1104 were registered. The School of Education believes that teachers should know the content of their courses, the best methods of teaching and the latest developments in the field of educa- tional measurements. It is the belief that the teachers should be as well prepared as any other engineer. The courses have been organized with this end in view. It is the policy of the Director of this work to make a study of the individual needs of each teacher and to give them constructive advice. It is this idea of personal service which has brought so many teachers to Muhlenberg College. This year the registration is made up of 249 men and 589 women, making a total of 838 part time college students.

Howard Kistler one of our instructors was a member of the class. This reunion will in all probability be the beginning of a new tradition for Muh- lenberg, for it was a novel idea and proved to be a great success. All of the members were clad in clown suits. The picture above shows a quartet of the men dressed in their clown suits, they are, Henry Snyder, a prominent attorney-at-law; Arthur Seidel, assistant prothonotary ; “Woody” Frankenfield, professor of Phys’cs at the Allentown High School, and Nevin Loch, who is also a member of the faculty of the Allentown High School. The orchestra pictured above, two of whose players were members of the class, was from Emaus. The third picture is one of Mr. Kistler, instructor of chemistry at Muhlenberg College. There were two banquets held, one was informal, the other was a formal affair. I ' he first was held on the evening before commencement at the Saegersville Hotel. After the banquet the members of the class spent a very pleasant evening, talking over old times. They continued to talk until the wee hours of the morning, later the same morning they attended the commencement exercises in a very sleepy mood. The second affair was a banquet held at the Hotel Traylor. The Melodvland Serenaders furnished the music. At the reunion Stephen G. Simpson and Dr. J. Bossard were made honorary members of the class. The present officers of the class are, President, Arthur Seidel ; Vice President, Henry Bager; Secretary and Treasurer, Nevin Loch. Since this affair proved to be so great a success and the idea is a new and very good one it is hoped that other classes will follow the example of ’15 and hold similar re- unions, thus helping to build up good traditions for Muhlenberg. Page One Hundred Ninety-six I 9 Z2. CIAR Roy Clifford Edwards Roy Clifford Edwards, better known as “Shorty”, is one of Muhlenberg’s foremost rooters. It is he whom everyone passes at the gateway to all the home football games. Little is thought of the man who takes the tickets of the fans of both sides. “Shorty” attended Muhlenberg Academy in 1900 and to earn his schooling cleaned the rooms as well as held down a job at Peter and Jacoby’s restaurant. Through the kindness of Col. Harry C. Trexler, he attended Muhlenberg College. He entered Moravian College and later the Seminary from which he graduated and was licensed and ordained in the First Baptist Church, Allentown, Pa., 1912. For twenty-six years Shorty has been active in athletics at Muhlenberg. Since the starting of football at Muhlenberg, he has been taking tickets and without ac- cepting one cent for his labor. His attend- ance at games reveals a remarkable record, having missed but two games on account of sickness, not including the time spent in his service in the war. “Shorty” too has taken the responsibility to see the home games well advertised and places posters in stores, hotels, and tacks them on posts over a route that exceeds the longest of any newsboy’s route in many a city. Much praise should be given this faithful, loyal supporter of athletics at Muhlen- berg. His record of service and attendance at all the games played by our teams should be the pride and envy of many an alumnus of Muhlenberg. May “Shorty” still keep his post at the gate and we bestow on him the greatest thanks and we have the highest praise for his services. Page One Hundred Ninety-seven I 0 2 7 C I AR -£ G. F.

Page Two Hundred Two HE athletic year 1925-26 closed most gloriously on court, track and diamond. Our tennis team had shown the greatest success in years, the track team had come out well after a most disquieting series of injuries, and the baseball team had met with but one defeat, as it closed the season with a most sensational victory over Albright, gained in the last innings by men playing their last game for Muhlenberg. Thus it was that the new season opened with so great promise under our new coach, Harry Benfer. Stroudsburg could not help but fall before the Berg juggernaut. One of the rarest events in the history of football — a touchdown by a tackle, Captain Clark — marked that contest. Next Lafayette, with a “mystery team of wonder” barely de- feated our warriors in a nip and tuck contest on old March field, where Nick Borell raced at will through the Maroon for scores, the first registered against that eleven in many years. Albright bowed in defeat before our triumphal horde, but Gettysburg placed a blot on our otherwise spotless record by swamping us 21-0. Our men plowed through Lebanon Valley in a mighty struggle and the next week wallowed in oceans of mud to a scoreless tie with Dickinson. So far we could not point to any extraordinary achievement. But what could the world say when Muhlenberg, displaying the best attack and defense in years, sailed through Lehigh, foeman worthy of our steel, tearing into ribbons the Brown and White cohorts, for a 9-7 victory, the second time that the Cardinal and Gray had returned from South Mountain triumphant. But this was only a prelude to a magnificent vic- tory over L. M. on Chrysanthemum Day, when the Blue and White was dragged in the mire of Muhlenberg Lield and a 38-7 score chalked up against the Lancastrians. Then came the celebration of celebrations. Monday was a holiday, of course, and all of us united to collect wood, paper, and other combustible matter for the biggest bonfire in history. Early in the morning we began our herculean labors and did not cease until the golden sunset had vanished and the stars shone dimly on the mountain of a, funeral pyre that we had built for Lehigh and Franklin and Marshall, who stood on its summit in effigy, seeming to survey the chaos that would soon engulf them. Inflammable material had been collected from far and wide, just as they had collected the teams that we had so thoroughly demoral- ized. Night fell, and we left the bonfire heavily guarded and went downtown in a splen- did parade, singing our paeans of victory. Down at the square we made the welkin ring with oitr cheers, and John Sefing, our bugler of victory, made us a speech which set our hearts on fire. Then we returned again to school and gathered about the great dark mass while the Coach and Captain Clark and others who had been instrumental in gaining us these victories set fire to it in a dozen places. Hushed thousands gasped Page Two Hundred Three at the brilliant spectacle and then broke the silence with a mighty roar of joy which shook the distant mountains and awoke fear in the hearts of our future opponents. Then, as the image that was Lehigh caught fire, toppled, and plunged head first into that sea of flame, we cheered again and again, and as the flames reached their peak we joined in our Alma Mater. For hours that mound of flame dyed the skies a faint Crimson, marking the setting of the sun of defeat and the dawn of our new day of supremacy. So we departed thence and marched on to further exploits. Catholic University could not defeat us, no matter how hard they and others tried, and again Nick Borrell gained us a game as he sprinted thirty odd yards for the lone touchdown of the day. And lastly, Villanova, coached by one of the immortal Four Horsemen, who was but “death” we believe, sunk us for the last time in defeat on Thanksgiving day, but only by a 23-9 score. So ended Muhlenberg’s greatest foot- ball season, the only one which saw the fall of both Lehigh and F. M., and the near- defeat of Lafayette. Page Two Hundred Four Page Two Hundred Five C £ Page Two Hundred Six FOOTBALL SQUAD I 9 2 CIARLA The Football Season of 1925 G enemy. HE football sch edule announced for the fall of 1925 was one of the most suitable to all concerned that has ever been followed by a Muhlenberg team. Not only did our three old rivals, Lafayette, Lehigh, and F. M. appear thereon, but Bucknell, our Nemesis, had been dropped and another ancient Lebanon Valley, been returned to the roster after a gap of three years since the memorable contest of 1921. Taken as a whole, the team was very successful in its thrust for another champion- ship. Lehigh was subdued and vanquished for the second time since football history began; Lafayette was scored on, yea, and very nearly thrashed, for the first time in another aeon; F. M. bit the dust just as ignominiously as it had the year before. Coach Benfer can be highly commended on such a splendid showing, for his first year of coaching at Muhlenberg. Stroudsburg Normal, our old trial horse, opened the season with a 36-0 victory marked up for us. It was a much smaller score than “Punk” Wood’s eleven had rolled up, for there was no single feature play used, no effort made to chalk up a high score, and the first string men worked only half time. Nick Borell paved the way for the first touchdown by a splendid run from midfield and on the second play after he rushed over for Muhlenberg’s first score of the year. Shortly before the end of the period he had added another, with “Winnie” Slemmer kicking goal, and this feat was dupli- cated in the second period. Winnie added a field goal a little later, and Nick another touchdown, but it remained for Captain Clark to make the first touchdown of his career by blocking a punt and falling over the line with it. This feat of prowess was really the most attractive feature of the whole game as further than that it was a mere suc- cession of sweeping end runs and massive attacks on the line, series of which ended in scores without exception. However, this monotony was broken on the next Saturday, when Muhlenberg op- posed the big Maroon team on March field at Easton. Lafayette was reputed to have another of her “wonder teams” and lived up to her reputation. For the last time, Lafayette’s famous Four Horsemen opposed the Cardinal and Gray, and did enough damage to make up for their loss. But it was Nick Borell — Nick the incomparable — who was the feature of the game. His splendid agility and high grade of playing made him the outstanding star in all that galaxy of talent. Twice, after fleeting runs that held the spectators breathless, he dashed across the goal line for Muhlenberg’s first scores against Lafayette since 1918. Both teams were wary in the first quarter, but in the second Lafayette got going for just long enough to send Kirkleski over with their first score. Ford kicked goal, and thus matters stood until early in the third quarter, Nick slipped away from his opponents and dashed 48 yards for a touchdown to tie things up. Slemmer made goal, but Lafayette, not at all paralyzed, came back with another touchdown on a pass to Marsh. Then the doughty Eastonians tried to launch an aerial offensive, but Dickert intercepted a pass, and another forward to Slemmer put Nick into position to score a second touchdown. The stands went frantic with joy over this unexpected piece of action. But Muhlenberg’s last hopes for victory were dimmed as Captain Gebhard of Lafayette went over for the last score of the day, and Muhlenberg was “marooned " again. The final score, 20-14, showed what a titanic struggle it really was. Both sides were glad when it was over, and with reason. Page Two Hundred Seven Albright was the next victim, and Benfer had the satisfaction of seeing his former proteges get a thorough beating 21-0. All this scoring strange to say, took place in the second period, when the team went on a rampage and shoved over three counters in rapid succession. Nick made two touchdowns on line plunges and Dickert made the third after catching a pass from Slemmer. In the last quarter, Albright’s zero very nearly changed to something else, for her star back, Angle, intercepted a pass very deftly and charged down the held at hurricane speed. Winnie Slemmer’s old quarter- miler’s stride proved equal to the occasion, and he forced Angle out on the hve-yard line. This was the only time that Albright threatened seriously. The plucky little team from Myerstown deserved all kinds of credit for its game fighting against such heavy odds. It was a bitter cold day when Muhlenberg journeyed away to Gettysburg to meet the Battlefield Collegians in their annual set-to. This game dimmed all our hopes of a brilliant year, for our line went all to pieces under the fire of the Orange and Purple, and only its pluck and endurance kept the score from mounting far higher. Gettysburg was all set to see Nick Borrell in all-American form and seemed disap- pointed when he did not beat their eleven single-handed. It was not like the game of the year before when Berg’s overwhelming attack demoralized Gettysburg for a whole season, for all the Bullets’ scoring took place in the first half, and in the second Muh- lenberg played the home team to a standstill. Clark, Rice and Borrell fought valiantly for Muhlenberg, while Spangler, Fisher, Stumpf and Hubisack did the damage for Gettysburg. It was this game that first brought Spangler into the public eye. From this depression Muhlenberg again rose to glorious heights when Lebanon Valley fell before her savage onslaught by a 14-0 score. It was the first time since the banner year of 1921 that Lebanon Valley had appeared on our field and the crowd was in proportion. Playing conditions were almost perfect. In the first quarter Gilbert, star of the Annville team, made two tries at goal but both failed because of the superior blocking of the Muhlenberg eleven. Both teams battled on even terms until about the middle of the second period when after fine offensive work by Slemmer and Dickert, Borrell crashed over for the first touchdown of the day. Slemmer kicked goal. Toward the end of this period the Muhlenberg team brought the ball all the way down to Leba- non Valley’s one yard line but the snappy Black team kept it there in a heroic defense. The third period opened with both teams again on even terms but Nick’s line crashing opened the way for his partner, Dickert, to go over for his second score of the season. The last quarter was scoreless, but Gilbert tried a last placement kick for the visitors, which Nick Borrell ran back to the forty yard line in the most sensational play of the game. However, toward the end of the struggle the Annville eleven began to push the Cardinal and Gray steadily backward. Fortune favored the Dickinson team as it found Muhlenberg impeded by the ankle-deep mud on the held. Anxious to make up for their defeat of the previous year, the Carlisle lawyers opened up with a splendid offensive which bade fair to turn the trick. During the first two periods both elevens battled on fairly even terms, with Muhlenberg having a slight advantage. Soon the ball was on the 35 yard line, close enough for Slemmer to try a held goal. This attempt failed, and Dickinson, aided by penalties, put Books, the shining light of the game, into position for a try from place- ment. The ball went far astray, and for the remainder of the half the rivals wallowed in the mire, and made little progress. When the second half opened, the embryo lawyers suddenly launched an offensive that was as terrihc as it was unexpected. Sweep- ing end runs were the means, and it was not until the Cardinal and Gray got onto the hrm ground near the goal posts that it was able to check the onslaught. Borrell had been injured, and Greenberg now took his place. This stocky plebe, nothing daunted by rain, fog, or Dickinson, started a parade of his own up the field, showing his super- iority in a muddy arena. His work stood out for Muhlenberg. Page Two Hundred Eight I 9 2 CIAR But what were these minor frays compared to the titanic conflict at Bethlehem, when Muhlenberg thundered through Lehigh at will trampling the Brown in the mire of Taylor Stadium? Never has a Muhlenberg team shown such splendid offense and defense as on that glorious day. 9-7 was the score the margin of victory being a field goal, which we owe entirely to Winnie Slemmer’s trusty toe which came across with the goods where Lewin, Lehigh’s famous kicking ace, failed miserably. In spite of the fact that Lehigh had been told to “watch Borrell,” or rather because of it, his work stood out head and shoulders above that of anyone else on the field. About all they could do was watch, as he crashed through the line, tore abound end, punted, passed and received with precision, and as Dickert, phantom-like, snatched pass after pass out of the air after Slemmer had propelled it. Right from the start it was plain that Muhlenberg had the better team. One lit- tle play did the damage, a double pass on a plunge through center, with Nick doing the plunging. Clymer and Dickert alternated with him and assisted tremendously in ad- vancing the ball to within safe distance for Slemmer to try at goal. The stands were hushed with awe as this momentous try was made, and at once broke into thunderous cheer as it was seen to succeed. Lehigh had been scored on again ! The Brown and White found it hard to get going after this reverse and had to punt to Muhlenberg in midfield, Borrell, Clymer and Slemmer almost at will tore down the field for gains varying from one yard to ten at a time, and at last, after Clymer had placed the ball on the one-yard line, Nick took the sacred oval and slid across with it. What mattered if Winnie’s try at goal was wild? We were beating Lehigh 9-0 and the telegraph was already winging this story over the world. Now opened the third quarter — the “un- lucky” third, as tradition has it. Nor was the crowd disappointed, for when shortly after its opening Nick punted to Lewin on the home team’s 42 yard line, Hess took the ball and on a line plunge went through, reversed his field, and flashed down to a score with the whole Muhlenberg team in pursuit. This brilliant exploit was followed by Lewin actually scoring the extra point. The rest of the game was a mad scramble for victory on Lehigh’s part, l ime and again, the toughest of tough luck allowed the warriors from the Holy City to place the ball within easy range for a field goal when Lewin proved incapable of sending it over. His own nervousness and poor protection from his own team were responsible. So the struggle, worthy of any epic, ended with the Cardinal and Gray triumphant on South Mountain. The score was not nearly in- dicative of the decisiveness of the victory, for Muhlenberg has amassed 17 first downs to Lehigh’s niggardly five. Followed this the Franklin and Marshall game, which gave us another glorious victory. Our ancient rivals from Lancaster had one severe thrashing to repay us for when they came up, and a second one, by a 38-7 score, added to it when they went back, in spite of all that a rather gorgeous band, resplendent in silver and fine ornaments, could do to the contrary. As a struggle it was a farce. The visitors began things as though they expected to win, but the spurt lasted for only a short time. Winnie Slem- mer was the opening scorer with a field goal, which comprised the entire scoring of the first quarter, but two minutes later Nick went over for a touchdown, following it shortly later with another, and the fun had begun. The second period was just as unan- imous for Muhlenberg. Dickert went over after about five minutes of desultory line plunging, Slemmer following with the extra point as usual, and then the round of substitutions began, ending scoring for a while. But Greenberg, who had turned the course of the Dickinson game, came in and twice in long runs cleared the enchanted line for more touchdowns. In the interval between them, Stehman, F. M.’s vaunted fullback, managed to get loose and scored a touchdown, but it was sorely needed to prevent a total shutout. The game ended with Muhlenberg rapidly shaping another offensive. Thus perished our foes of Lancaster. Catholic University was the next foeman to fall before our triumphal army. The team invaded the Capital City strong and hopeful, but found that combating not only a 2b Page Two Hundred Nine (i S32= fairly strong team, hut also the powers that be, was too strenuous. The first period of the game was hectic, the ball travelling up and down the field with extraordinary fre- quency, but never getting anywhere. Then, later on, in the second session, Nick Borell came across with the unexpected but necessary and sprinted 35 yards for the winning touchdown. His ever-dependable ally, Slemmer, kicked goal. From now on, the road Muhlenberg had to travel got rockier on every play, and some rather peculiar obstacles were encountered. The entire third period was just as inconclusive as the first, al- though it could easily be seen that Muhlenberg had a much faster and better team, but in the fourth the only really sensational incident of the contest occurred. Dickert fumbled the ball on Muhlenberg’s own 37 yard line, Adams, of Catholic, recovered, but again fumbled and Donalson pounced on the ball. He kicked it however, on the way and was blocked with it behind the goal line. After discussion it became Catholic’s ball on the two-yard line, but in four downs the distance was as insurmountable as Mount Everest. Thus ended this most disappointing game. Borell and Slemmer starred for Muhlenberg. Last, but saddest, was the defeat at the hands of Villanova. Coached by Stuhl- dreher, hero of the Four Horsemen of Notre Dame, the main Liners came up deter- mined and confident. Using a wonderful aerial attack and an impregnable defence, they plowed through Muhlenberg at will. The game opened well enough, as. Green- berg on the second play tore loose and hurtled down the field 55 yards for a touchdown, Muhlenberg’s only real counter. It was also Muhlenberg’s only threat. Outside of this little episode Villanova had things much her own way. Broderick scored twice and heroic Moynihan once, which with two goals from touchdown proved a sufficient obstacle to a Muhlenberg victory. Thus closed the season. Six victories, three defeats and a scoreless tie marked our efforts, but the victories far outshone the defeats. It was the only year in which both Lehigh and F. M. succumbed to our thrusts, and the first year in many in which Lafayette found her goal line crossed by our valiants. We consistently outscored and outplayed our opponents with slight exceptions. Hero of the year was of course Nick Borell, favorite son of fortune and half-back de luxe, but how can we pass by without mentioning giants like Slemmer, Dickert, Greenberg, Clymer, Clark, Rice and Black, whose playing stood out on every occasion? Truly it was a most successful year from all aspects, and one of Muhlenberg’s most glorious. Page T=wo Hundred Ten I 9 Harry A, Bemfer, Jr. Coach of Athletics HEN Coach Benfer arrived at Muhlenberg, he found student spirit in that doubtful and gloomy state which every change of organization brings with it. However, he had not been here long before his qualities of leadership and coaching ability made themselves felt. He has in his short stay here pro- duced ' one of Muhlenberg’s best football teams and has led the basketball team to a repetition of its old successes. Coach “Haps” believes in playing the great game of life squarely and bravely, whatever the odds, and it is this doctrine which he has made a part of our school life. As an athlete Benfer has a brilliant record ; while coaching at Albright he had great success, but his endeavors at Muhlenberg have within a very short time produced even more magnificent triumphs than those. “Haps” is an athlete first of all, but his abilities go far beyond that field. Without saying more, we can truly assert that Benfer is an ideal type of coach, vigorous, aggressive, and able, and that his short reign on the campus has already brought forth as great confidence from the students as can possibly be vested in a leader. 2S 2 Page Two Hundred Eleven i§i3 iD RL-A Our Gridiron Warriors WILLIAM DOUGAL McALPIN Philadelphia, Pa. Big Mac has played his last game for the Cardinal and Grey. He was a tower of strength on the line and certainly did block enemy plays to perfection. His place will be hard to fill. As a guard, he has few equals and no superiors. LELAND C. WINKLER Alton, 111. “Jerry” has been with us only three years, but he will be graduated this spring, when Muhlenberg will lose one of her scrappiest linemen. He has pepped up things at tackle wherever he has appeared, and he will leave an aching void for the next season. O : HAROLD GROVES Detroit, Mich. “Pat” has donned the togs for the last time in the interest of Muhlenberg. His vast bulk at guard checked many a hostile offensive and served to open the way for our backs to thunder through. He will be sadly missed next year. Page Two Hundred Twelve PAUL FREED Allentown, Pa. “Bus” earned his letter away back in ’21 under Coach Spiegel, but returned and served under both Wood and Benfer. He plays a smashing game at the wing position and often rushes in to break up hostile drives. JOHN REUTLINGER Philadelphia, Pa. “Reut” has long been an outstanding contender for a tackle berth. This year, his last, has brought him the coveted “M” in reward for long, hard work. MILTON STEINHAUER Wilkes-Barre, Pa. “Micky’s” flashy work on the Freshman team of a few years ago are still fresh in our minds. While he has had a hard road to travel in the face of intense back- field competition, his senior year has found him with his long desired “M”. Page Two Hundred Thirteen WINFRED T. SLEMMER Philadelphia, Pa. “Ben” is one of the greatest drop-kickers in the coun- try, and has all bv himself done Muhlenberg’s scoring in many a tough football game. His work at quarterback has been a shining light of several seasons, and Muhlen- berg will be sorry to lose him. JOHN PHILLIPS Lebanon, Pa. Our Captain-elect is a fighting little end who always seems to be where the most action is. Perhaps he’s the prime cause of the action. Fast on his feet and as plucky as they come, Johnny is an asset on any kind of field. We wish him all kinds of success with his team next year. PAUL CLYMER Allentown, Pa. Pauly started out as an end on the Freshman team long ago, but what a half-back he turned out to be. “Rugged” is one of the sturdiest line plungers we have, and is a fast little traveler besides. The same is true of him as was said about Muhlenberg — “Little, but oh, Page Two Hundred Fourteen NICHOLAS BORRELL Grantwood, N. J. Gettysburg decided that Nick was an All-American but it took the Lehigh and Lafayette games to prove it. He has been cited for many honors, but none can be greater than to be the man who played so wonderfully for his Alma Mater. We are glad that for two more years Nick will strike terror into our foes and his. EDGAR DICKERT Allentown, Pa. This flashy halfback during the past season repeatedly brought the astounded throngs to their feet by his mighty line plunges and splendid defensive work, but most of all by the way he snatched passes out of the air. These ex- ploits gained him the title of “Phantom of the Forward. " HALDEMAN C. STOUDT Wilmington, Del. This big tackle came to us from Perkiomen Prep, and made good right away. This was his second year as a letter man, and few were the gains through his position. He was unlucky enough to be injured in the Lafayette game, but came back with a bang and fought all the way through the season. Page Two Hundred Fifteen WILLIAM GREENBERG Crum Lynne, Pa. This stalwart son of the Delaware bottoms is one of the hardest line-crackers in this part of the world. His sensational exploits against F. M. and Villanova still linger in our memories along with his mighty drive against Dickinson. For a Freshman, he has a record to be very proud of. JOSEPH EVANS Easton, Pa. The river city sent us this young brave whose work at end was one of the few redeeming features of the dis- aster at Gettysburg. Joe plays a fine, fast game, and his good start this year promises much better work in the future. Page Two Hundred Sixteen 5 ® The Freshman football season of 1925 was the most successful one thus far. Coach Holstrum’s proteges, although unfortunate in point of lack of experience and organization, soon overcame these difficulties and after the opening games of their season displayed fierce offensive and tough defensive capacities, riding rough-shod over some of the best teams in their class in the East. Muhlenberg had a Freshman ruling this year which explains certain conditions: Only Freshmen are allowed to play on the Freshman team, but no Freshman shall be barred from the varsity. In consequence, this plucky little eleven lost some men who might have been their mainstays. Nevertheless, a record of five games won against two lost speaks for itself. ' File season opened against Bethlehem High, which just barely defeated the Frosh, whose lineup was not yet settled, 12-7. The following week Lafayette Frosh, aided by fumbles, trounced the yearlings 32-0. However, the team “got going” with the result that Temple Frosh went back to the Quaker city with a 47-0 thrashing on their hands. Gordon, playing center, made a touchdown — for a man at his position a rare and wonderful thing. Perkiomen Prep then lost to the freshmen on a sloppy field by the scant margin of a safety, which does not indicate the real edge the Frosh had. West Chester Normal, with a heavy team of great experience, then visited us but went back with a defeat of 19-14 against them. Wentz’ brilliant work receiving passes materially helped turn the trick. Then Rutgers Frosh, with as strong an eleven as could be found anywhere, was soundly trounced at New Brunswick by a 16-0 count. Last of all, and most glorious, was the defeat administered to Lehigh Frosh. Le- high had a heavier team but could not withstand the smashing offensive which the Bergmen unleashed. Smooth, finished work characterized our Frosh play. Ulrich scored all three touchdowns. High lights of the season were the tremendous line plunging of Martin and the fast fieldwork of Ulrich; Pascal’s generalship and excellent kicking: the work of Chapman, Neudorfer and Jacobs stood out on the line, while Wentz at end displayed wonderful talent. Gordon, at center, was a tower of strength. Page Two Hundred Seventeen Page Two Hundred Eighteen Freshman Letter Men Frazier Wentz Chapman Neudorfer J acobs L.

Twenty-one fi3 CD ’HEN Coach Benfer called out the basketball squad for its first practice, he found he had a large squad of experienced men from last year with which to work, and in consequence, the freshmen material was barred from varsity work. The veterans soon rounded into a very smooth-working, finished team, and from the first seemed headed for that coveted goal, a successful year. The season opened against Penn at Philadelphia, where the Quakers with the best team in years gained a 27-16 victory. On the following Saturday, Mount Airy Seminary, the old trial horse, was handed a severe 60-13 lacing, and Moravian received another, 46-22. Three consecutive reverses followed. Lehigh beat us at Bethlehem 40-27, Leba- non Valley revenged itself for a football defeat 34-28, and Lehigh again turned us back on our own floor for the count of 44-30. It seemed as though luck was against the Berg cagemen, and it must be accounted to their credit that their morale was not shat- tered. The annual eastern trip came out more successfully than usual. Upsala, facing a Muhlenberg team for the first time, was nosed out 34-31, but Stevens Tech in a red hot game in the fair city of Hoboken won over us 31-24. Now came the really glorious part of the year. Five consecutive victories rested with the Cardinal and Gray. Page Two Hundred Twenty-two Benfer’s men turned against their coaches old school Albright and destroyed its representatives 32-26; Villanova too succumbed 33-28 after a hectic battle. Then working like demons, the basketeers edged out Lafayette 25-24 in a phenomenal extra- period game. As if to make up for their previously closer score against Moravian than was customary, the team now completely swamped their old rivals from the Holy City by a 55-20 count. Then followed what was in many respects the most sensational game of the year, against Haverford. The Little Quakers lost, 33-32, in the last half minute of play, as Nick Borrell turned in a one-handed shot from far beyond the middle of the floor, just as the whistle blew. Villanova regained her edge in the interscholastic series by a 32-26 victory, the Blue and White getting an early lead and keeping it safe. The season closed with a burst of speed against Lafayette. For the sixth con- secutive time the Maroon yielded court honors to the Cardinals, by the lopsided tally of 36-15. It was a fit ending for a glorious season, and closed Captain Clymer’s two years as leader of the team in the happiest possible way. Lawson, forward, and high scorer of the season, was the shining light. His bril- liant floor work and accurate shooting went a long way towards victory. Captain Clymer follows, of course, only for his speedy work and careful play, but Ziegenfus, center, only one point behind him in scoring and even with him in playing ability de- serves credit. Borell and Freed, regular guards, must be mentioned for steady, con- sistent, but often brilliant services to their team. Schlums, captain-elect, and Coldren, with Dickert, and Wright, who was dropped early in the year, added their efforts in fighting through the season. Prospects for next year are unusually bright. Only two men, Ziegenfus and Freed, are lost to the team, and a wealth of material from the present Freshman team is available. Under the leadership of Captain “Winnie” Schlums and the capable tutelage of Benfer, who knows what the Cardinal and Gray won’t do in the future? Manager Gehringer has promised a heavy schedule, but we feel that with our old stars and the new reserves, nothing should stand in the way of another happy year.

Five victories and four defeats were the sum total, and while in several cases the Freshmen won games by wide margins, only one of those against them could really be classed as one-sided. Although in former years freshman teams had taken the field, or rather the court, th is was the first time that a team had really been handled on a systematic basis. Man- ager Gehringer announced a schedule which was played through without the usual run of cancellations, and the results were really gratifying. No freshman was taken onto the varsity squad so that a team of great strength was brought onto the courts in every game. High scorer of the season was Pascal, al- though Minka, Kiefer and Chapman gave him a great race for honors. The men who formed the squad were : Chapman, Crowell, Empie, Evans, Frazier, Kiefer, Kimble, Martin, Minka, Pascal and Ulrich. All of these men did valiant service later in the intramural league. Their schedule was as follows: Muhlenberg Frosh 20 Pottsville High . 26 Muhlenberg Frosh 32 Moravian Reserves 8 Muhlenberg Frosh 23 Moravian Reserves 14 Muhlenberg Frosh 35 Perkiomen Prep 14 Muhlenberg Frosh 30 Blair Academy 50 Muhlenberg Frosh 19 Lehigh Frosh 29 Muhlenberg Frosh 19 Lafayette Frosh 24 Muhlenberg Frosh 43 Palmerton High 25 Muhlenberg Frosh 32 Lafayette Frosh 21 253 211 Page Two Hundred Twenty-five Joseph Evan Gehringer Manager of Frosh Basketball Team Page Two Hundred Twenty-six Page Two Hundred Twenty-seven 1 ® UHLENBERG’S 1925 baseball season was a flash from start to finish. For the second year of organized baseball at any college the record of eight vic- tories and one defeat would be glory enough, but the decisive character of the triumphs further indicates what a pennant-winning combination Coach Wood produced with the material at hand. Two men were foremost in this procession of conquests. Coach Wood developed a formidable organization out of the squad which reported to him, an organization which was enough to frighten any opposing battery. To him goes the credit for train- ing and teaching, but to Ziegenfus, star hurler, who is responsible for all but one of the victories, we must also pay a great tribute. Neither should we forget Conway, gallant captain ; nor should we forget any man who did his best to add success to the year. The team opened its schedule with a bang by defeating Villanova on the foreign field by a 10-5 score. Although the Main Liners started out bravely they could not cope with the avalanches of runs that Muhlenberg let loose, and the previous defeat in ’24 was avenged. The next victim was Lehigh. With the game scoreless for three innings, Adams of Lehigh passed several in the fourth, filling the bases, and Ziegenfus smashed out a homer that won his own game. Muhlenberg’s brilliant fielding was largely responsible for this triumph over our old foe. Shortly after, Villanova came up to Allentown in an effort to stage a comeback, but failed wretchedly. Again a barrage of safeties assailed the pitcher who had turned back Holy Cross, and again the score over this formidable team was doubled by the doughty Allentonians. Page Two Hundred Twenty-eight (ii££ci Haverford was the loser in a hectic contest featured by a bevy of home runs. They came in at all times and at the most inopportune moments, for no one was on base when any of these circuit clouts occurred. Borden’s scintillant fielding stood out for Muhlenberg. Cressman pitched Muhlenberg to a 6-3 victory over Stroudsburg Normal at Stroudsburg in the next game. Rain stopped the contest in the eighth inning, but Muhlenberg had sufficient lead to receive the decision. Franklin and Marshall was now turned back by a 7-2 score in a game featured by the weirdest hitting imaginable. Of the twelve hits garnered by the two teams, all were singles. The visitors were held scoreless until the last two innings. Swarthmore, the only team to defeat the Cardinal and Gray, did so only by a 2-1 shade. Muhlenberg was slightly off form, while the Garnet aggregation played as it had never played before. A swift return to form saw Franklin and Marshall again trounced, this time hv a 7-3 tally. The Lancastrians hadn’t the least chance aginst the heavy artillery with which they were faced. Finally, in the prime contest of the year, on Alumni Day, Albright fell before the onslaught of our boys by a 5-4 score. Four runs did the visitors amass in the almost fatal second inning, holding this lead until the ninth, when Ziegenfus drove in two men ahead of him, and collapsed at the plate in the intense heat. However, he was re- vived, and shut out the visitors in the extra session, when Witt and Conway playing their last game for Muhlenberg, together accounted for the winning run. It was one of the games you read about, but seldom see. Thrills held the spectators from start to finish. Thus did Coach Wood’s last team end its season. Not only the splendid record of victory, but the fine play of the team in the face of stiff opposition and considerable ob- stacles deserve our praise. The prospects for a new season of success are bright. True, losses are heavy, for Borden, Hord, Conway, Witt, and Moll have played their last games for Muhlenberg, but new material seems promising and our new coach, Benfer, has a splendid record with which to inspire confidence. All success to him!

CIAR Page Two Hundred T hirty-one The tennis season at Muhlenberg during the past year was the most successful during the history of the college. The team won a match, tied one, and lost four. This is the first time in the history of tennis at Muhlenberg that a match has been won in this sport. The first match of the season was played with Lafayette on the Lafayette courts at Easton. T his match was lost 6-0. It was the first match of the season with Lafay- ette showing more polish than Muhlenberg, and their superiority finally asserted itself over our team. The second match was played with Moravian College at Bethlehem which again resulted in a loss 5-1. The scores in this match were closer than in the previous match and Moravian was taxed to the utmost to wring victory from the Muhlenberg men. On May 13 the Muhlenberg team traveled to Franklin and Marshall and here met a very superior group of tennis players, and again tasting defeat to the tune of 6-0. This was by far the best team that our men met throughout the entire season. Two days later the club visited Mt. Airy Seminary and bv a great comeback featuring Nolde, a former Muhlenberg star, the Mt. Airy team managed to wrest a 3-3 tie from our men. The Muhlenberg men showed a marked superiority over their former matches in this dual meet and seemed as if they were only coming into their regular form. The next trip was to P. M. C. where the Muhlenberg men again tasted defeat. The score at the end of the match stood 5-1. This match was closer than the final score indicates, each set and match going well over the average amount of games and P. M. C. came out with flying eolors probably more because of their knowledge of their own courts. Page Two Hundred Thirty-two £ C iARLA S S fS The next match with Moravian College was played on the courts of the Oakmont Tennis Club of Allentown and after a most bitterly fought afternoon of tennis Muh- lenberg at last tasted the fruits of victory. Every match was hotly contested and Muh- lenberg emerged victor only after many deuce sets had been played. The final match of the season was scheduled with Gettysburg, but only two of the singles matches were finished, Gettysburg having won both. Rain prevented the re- mainder of the matches, the score being 4 to 2. On the whole the season was a very successful one judging from the scores of previous years and with improvements for tennis being constantly made, Muhlenberg should soon be able to take her place in the tennis world which it should hold. Mem- bers who composed the team were: Walter Seegers, captain; John Haws, Elmer Schaertel, George Deisher, and John Jordan. Jacob Sotter was manager of the team with Charles Helwig as his assistant.

Many veterans and a wealth of new material greeted Coach Robinson at the opening of practice, and his careful work speedily rounded the team into first-class condition. The first meet saw Philadelphia Textile defeated by the wholesome score of 95-31. The Quaker athletes furnished very little opposition, and many men gained their letters for Muhlenberg on the basis of this meet alone. Lafayette put the only real blemish on the season when in a mid-week affray the Eastonians romped away with the meet winning 91 ' 2-33 ' 2. Allen, star of the visit- ors, tucked away many good points and was high scorer in the meet. In the last dual meet of the season, on a foreign track, the team nosed out C. C. N. Y. by a 59-53 count. The meet was featured by one event of significance — Henry crowned his long career by breaking the college record for the mile run. In the Pennsylvania Central meet at Harrisburg, Muhlenberg placed fourth among Class A schools, with a total of 28 points. Gettysburg won with only 38. Kancko was the sensation of the meet, breaking the meet record in the javelin with a toss of 158 feet, and equalling the record in the low hurdles. Page Two Hundred Thirty-six In the Middle Atlantics Meet held at Haverford, which Swarthmore won with 37 points, Muhlenberg did less than for a long time. Our men garnered only two points, Kancko coming in fifth in the low hurdles and Schrader doing the same in the broad jump. Thus the season was really successful, in spite of the obstacles which were met with in the form of injuries to the men. Neverthless, the showing was very good, and with a loss of but one man, Henry, prospects for another year are very bright.

Thru the activities of the various organizations the spirit of the college they represent is brought to the attention of the outside world. Who doubts today that a football team is the best advertising medium a college can have? But there is a phase of college life other than athletics, which is not generally brought to the attention of the outside world, and that is the intellectual and cultural side of our educational institutions. And Muhlenberg is one of the colleges which has always striven to bring to the realization of her constituency the fact that a college is not solely an athletic playground. To do this there was started in the year 1903 the organization known as the Muhlenberg College Glee Club which has increased in fame with each succeeding year of its existence. However it is not the purpose of this article to praise the Club indiscriminately, nor is that necessary for this group of young men is as well known to the followers of Muhlenberg as is her football team. But it will not be amiss to state briefly the evolu- tion of the program. For many years College glee club programs were modeled along the lines of a slap-stick vaudeville program, and as such they pleased a certain element of the people only. But gradually there came the realization that such cheap slap- stick comedy did more to lower the ideals of a college in the eyes of the people than it did to raise them. Consequently the glee clubs were put in charge of competent direc- tors who began to raise the type of the program to a standard hitherto unthought of. Instead of the cheap knock-em-down and drag-em-out stuff, higher class comedy and music more of a concert type were substituted. As a result most glee clubs today pre- sent a program which is well rounded and bound to please even the most critical audi- ence. The Muhlenberg Glee Club is typical of this evolution and today renders a con- cert of such rare quality and variety that she ranks among the leading glee clubs of the country. For the lover of music whose tastes run to the classical compositions there is the instrumental trio, which has never failed to please, as well as the concert work on the piano by Paul Held whose name stands high among the leading pianists of the East. Then there is the incomparable jazz orchestra under the able leadership of Charles Bachman for those who like the popular music of the times. Even a touch of the dramatic is added in the form of the comedy skit which features the superb acting of Harvey Herring. Of course the chorus singing of the men is what makes the organiza- tion a glee club. Their numbers interspersed throughout the program seem to add the final touch to the success of the concert. The “Song of the Jolly Roger,” “The Big Brown Bear,” and the “Battle Song” are three numbers which will linger long in the memories of those fortunate enough to hear this club. And last but not least is none other than our able director, Prof. Harold K. Marks, to whom the club in a large measure owes much of its success. Thus it will be seen that the field covered by the program is not a narrow one by any means. The aim of the club is to please and by means of its varied program these young men have pleased. Therefore in closing it can be safely said that to hear the Page Thjuo Hundred Forty-three I c Muhlenberg College Glee Club is not merely an evening’s entertainment, but it is dis- tinctly a privilege which comes but once a year . May the Muhlenberg Glee Club con- tinue to be successful and may it reach even greater heights in the future than in the past, ■ _ i ; _J The Muhlenberg Glee Club Program “Fair Muhlenberg” (H. K.

The custom had been to form a club consisting of banjos and mandolins, which would travel with the Glee Club and appear at the concerts. In 1922-23 the force of modern music began to make itself felt in that there were not enough mandolins and banjos to form a club composed strictly of those instruments. Besides, the year before a group of students had formed an orchestra under the direction of Art Mickley who brought it to such a high perfection that it was drafted into service for the Glee Club. With this precedent to follow in 1922-23 it was decided to form a combination of instruments as follows: Piano, Alfred Van Dusen ; trumpet, Charles Barndt; saxo- phone, Edgar Knies; banjo, mandolins, William Hillegas and Stanley Schweimler; tenor banjo, Jacob Hartman; straight banjo, Leonard Deininger; violin, Charles Bachman. This combination was under the direction of Alfred Van Dusen and made a tremendous success playing all the popular dance music of the year. The next year 1924-25 it was decided to form an orchestra with as near the prop- er instrumentation as could be secured in college. The following men made up the orchestra: Alfred Van Dusen, piano; William Hillegas, tenor banjo; Charles Bach- man, violin; Harold Koch, trumpet; George Riggs and Edgar Knies, saxophones; Wil- lard Baum, traps. The orchestra of this year continued the success of the year before in every way. This year the orchestra is composed of the following members: Leonard Dein- inger, piano; Charles Bachman, tenor banjo; Robert Stauffer, tuba; Sidney Supowitz, traps; John Geissinger and Harry Reinhold, trumpets; Carlton Baum and James Drury saxophones. Having the advantage of more material to pick from, the orchestra is better balanced, and has been making a bigger hit than ever before. In 1922-23 the orchestra was known as the “Cardinals,” because of the vivid Spanish girdles worn. The last two years it has been known as the “Cardinal and Gray Orchestra,” from the college colors; and bids fair to become the official name.

WHEELER Page Two Hundred Forty-six C I AR g BOUT the year 1912, several Muhlenberg students in order to stir up enthusiasm for an approaching athletic contest, gathered together some noise making devises and a few musical instruments, and thus in the spirit of frivolity formed the first Muhlenberg College Band. Some of the more serious minded in the next year or two collected the musical talent and formed the first real hand at Muhlenberg. The “Old rimers " are still singing the praises of “Pop " Erickson and the wonderful band that he organized and directed. Since that time a band has been maintained for the football games, but that was practically all. Much credit must be given Frederick Preuss ’25, for his efforts in trying to form a band into a permanent organization on the campus. This year a new regime was instituted. Prof. C. Spencer Allen, connected with the Lafayette College Band for years, took charge and put the band on a basis such that credit in music is now given for participation in band activities. The student body showed their interest in the organization by contributing the magnificent sum of five hundred dollars for instruments. The citizens of Allentown and many others assisted materially in making the band the decided success that it has been this year. Uniforms were secured and worn for the first time at the now famous Lehigh football game. The cadet gray coat and trousers with the overseas cap all trimmed in cardinal would have not been nearly as attractive without the beautiful cadet gray cape lined with cardinal and displaying an old English “M” “C " in gray, when thrown back to display the cardinal lining. We have been called “the most attractively uni- formed College Band in the Lehigh Valley. " Mr. William G. Genzler, of the class of 1926 has been the able director. Many are the compliments paid this able leader for the wonderful results he has obtained. The band did not disband after the football season, but continued practising for concerts. On several occasions the band has been called upon to render a program of concert music. Several concerts are scheduled. At the College Day festivities, the band rendered several selections, on which occasions the Allentown Band usually parti- cipated. The promenade concert at Commencement this year will be given by the College Band. The band also participated at several basketball games this last fall. These are only a few of the many things accomplished this year. Bigger and bet- ter things are looked for next year.

We are always fortunate to have with us a few talented musicians who are able to please the various tastes on the campus. ' The Glee Club, our most popular musical organization, has acquired through- out the east the reputation of presenting its music in a novel style. Each year an im- provement which excells that of the preceeding year until now it compares with the best musical clubs. This season we were again fortunate to have a College Orchestra which accom- panies the Glee Club on all its tours. Reports tell us that it has made a hit wherever it played. The Orchestra is only a few years old, but the work it has done in the short time of its existence insures us of its ability to keep on improving. File greatest step this year has been the reorganization of the Band. Under the directorship of one of our professors it has received an impetus that will enable it to rival the best College Bands. For the first time the members were in uniforms this season. At present regular practice meetings are held and with the experience it gets by playing at debates and other affairs, we predict an excellent Band for next year’s football season. The Trio is another group just started. It accompanied the Glee Club and from reports we are able to say that it is doing excellent work. Deininger’s Orchestra also appeared this year for the first time. It is already filling engagements down town to furnish dance music. Music is gradually finding its place at Muhlenberg. Outside friends are begin- ning to support it as is shown b y the late contributions of uniforms for the Band. We hope for the time when music will become a part of the curriculum so that all students may have an opportunity to learn to appreciate it. Last year another organization started, along musical lines, in the form of the Druid Quartette. This was composed of men who were interested in this line of work with no other end in view except the pleasure to be derived from it. J. Kenneth Christman, who has had a wide experience in directing musical organizations and who is student leader of the Glee Club, offered to help the quartette in their work. As a result the quartette was asked to sing on different occasions at meetings and church af- fairs. This year the quartette was reorganzied and several concerts have been given. The season was opened by singing at an M. C. A. meeting and shortly afterwards at Fullerton. They have sung several times at St. John’s Lutheran Church and also at others where they were received by a pleased audience. Radio concerts also have been given and requests have come for the quartette to sing again. After Easter several engagements have been made among which the most important are concerts at Werners- ville and Stroudsburg. The programmes usually consist of not only selections by the quartette but also piano solos by Mr. Christman. In several songs the banjo and mandolin are used as an accompaniment. The quartette is composed of J. Carroll Wilkinson, first tenor; Paul Empie, second tenor; Gerald G. Neely, baritone; Claude E. Schick, bass and J. Kenneth Christman, director and accompanist. Page Two Hundred Fifty Page Two Hundred Fifty-one “Student self-government” has always been the motto of a progressive college and Muhlenberg holds out our student body organization as its logical creation on any campus. This is not a dead bodv by any means. Altho at times hampered by tradition, it has a number of beneficial duties. The Student Body is really the foundation of all our law and order, even empowering the Student Council. It authorizes athletic awards and makes necessary regulations, among which are the rules covering cars on the campus; speed limit, etc. The smokers before football games are the first evidence of its presence during the year. Every activity sponsored by the college is certain to have been started by the Student Body. President Vice President Secretary Treasuer OFFICERS - Ellis J.

It is comprised of representatives from the different frats and the non-frat group so that it is a very democratic body. Its members may be distinguished by their black hats with white S. C.’s on them. The first indication of the Council to the Frosh is a little slip of paper which con- veys the information to the poor Frosh that he has less money than he thought he had. Later they meet the Council in Interclass scraps or perhaps in a more personal way at one of the trials. It seems to work in very nicely with the faculty for regulation of campus activities and has proven itself a very desirable group. President Vice President Secretary T re a surer OFFICERS Walter A.

Every one on the campus looks forward to it from week to week. Their interest is of two kinds : Some read it to hear of anv new incidents on the campus while the others read it to find the mistakes in what is recorded on its pages. The Weekly is very valuable in reaching our alumni with its account of the col- lege and what it is doing. Students with a leaning toward newspaper work have found that it is a great help in learning a two letter word used in cross word puzzles.

A. is a misunderstood but patient body ready with help whenever the students feel need of it. It initiates the Frosh into college life thru the books which are sent to them before coming to college in September, and continues the initiation when it gives the Freshman reception shortly after the beginning of school where the Freshmen are introduced to each professor and given some good advice. Its work goes into a variety of subjects, among which may be counted the secur- ing of chapel speakers, the placement of students into desirable positions, deputation work, and help in missions.

Last year due to the infancy of the activity four out of the five debates scheduled were lost but this year the schedule has been increased to eleven debates and at the time of this writing five victories out of nine debates have been credited to the team. Additional significance comes from the fact that the increase in the schedule has been made up of schools as Temple U., Dickinson, and the U. of Pittsburgh. The attendance at the debates has been remarkable for fully 50% of the student body attends the forensic clashes which means that debating is attracting a student at- tendance second only to football. Some of the other fruits of debating are not yet evident but will be shortly. Before very long Muhlenberg will probably have it’s first national honorary fraternity which will be one of the two foremost forensic fra- ternities in the country. The team this year has been under the very capable captaincy of Walter Knittle who ofttimes turned the tide by his convincing oratory and sound logic. He together with Wm. Hudders and James Harrison will be leaving this year and although these three important positions must be filled by new men the rapidly growing interest in the activity insures us of very little difficulty in this respect. Next year the schedule will be even better than this year in that there will be just as many debates but they will be confined to more representative institutions. Members of Team: Wm. S. Hudders, Walter A. Knittle, Capt. ; John S. Rhoda, John Henrich, Henry Scheirer, Russell Gaenzle, James Harrison, Howard Ross, Elmer Schaertel, Arthur Gillespie, Coach.

Barba, is one of the active organizations on the campus. It has been and is the purpose of the Club to further the students acquaintance with the German language and German literature. German is the language spoken at the meetings of the Verein. It is in this way that the student receives what he probably would not receive in his regular class work. Last year the Verein presented two interesting German plays. The parts were rendered in German and a large crowd enjoyed the comedies very much. Credit must be given to those male members who took the ladies’ parts. In fact everyone who participated deserve praise. It was indeed a successful venture for the Club’s strong supporter, Dr. Barba. He deserves much credit for his efforts. The meetings of the Verein are held every two weeks. Often programs are rend- ered, German games are played and German songs are sung. It is at the conclusion of the program that the meeting becomes most delightful. For it is then that the members indulge in all the typical German luncheons that can possibly be obtained. The only difference„comes in the di inking, which instead of the good old German beer, the club must resort to “Kaffee.” Dr. Barba and Dr. Reichard are the faculty advisors and have often proved by their untiring efforts in the furtherance of the success of the club, capable and interest- ing entertainers. The following are the officers of the Verein: President - Vice President - Secretary - Treasurer - Albert Benfield Garford Graver Russell W. Gilbert John Geissinger This organization is passing thru another successful year under the guidance of Mr. Bennett, who is teaching in the French and Spanish department, during the ab- sence of Prof. Corbiere, who is studying in Europe. The purposes of the club are to promote a deeper interest in France and French literature and to hear French spoken outside of the classroom. The meetings are held in the College Commons or in a fraternity house. The time is spent by readings and talks on French literature and customs and French music is played and sung. After the meetings a luncheon is served which always pleases those present. Next year the interest will be much deeper because Prof. Corbiere will surely have some very interesting stories to tell about his studies and tour in Europe. Admittance to the Club is on merit of scholarship alone. The officers for this year are Garford Graver, president ; J. Kenneth Christman, vice presi- dent ; Harold Barnes, secretary, C. E. Schick, treasurer. Page Two Hundred Sixty-one 19 2 7 CIARL The month of March, 1926, saw the inauguration of a new activity at Muhlen- berg — Th e Chess Cluh — which from its beginning grew fast and soon became as well known as any like organization on the campus. A small group of excellent players soon drew in with them everyone who had talent or ambition along the line of Chess and after an organization was completed, a tournament was held and a team selected. To date ho foreign match has been contracted for, but several are in process of con- clusion and this new and most interesting diversion seems firmly established.

The purpose of the club is to promote interest in the study of history. Along with the regular meetings open forum discussions are held on events of a historical nature. Be- sides having discussion on historical topics social events are also scheduled throughout the term..

Page Two Hundred Seventy-nine ciarla £ The Egotistic Frosh I should like to till several volumes with accounts of my various escapades with women; so fond are my reminiscences of them, and so numerous are they. I should like to write, above all, of one experience in particular. Her name was as sweet as the roses, and she had more curves than a French Horn — a million dollars please, you can keep the tin-foil, Ambrose. She was one of those pulse- quickening, dashing, hug-me-tight, red-hot mammas, with the come-hither eyes; with a form just built for a Ford mudster. 1 his thrilling night-mare occurred on the night of the annual dance of the Nu Rho Delta fraternity, held at the Ben Franklin. I had grabbed off a cardboard, and phoned my sweet “sugar” to cinch the date. As per usual she tried to “high hat” me until I dangled my wares before her fetching optics. Quickly the frigidity of her haughty mien turned into one of warmth and feeling. Everything was “jake”, and I was fully prepared for the occasion, I had secured a friend’s “Leaping Lena” as the method of transportation, and was all “Tuxed out” raring to go. Silently I glided up to the door of my “sugar”, and after the usual preliminaries we were on our way to a night of supposed fun and merry-making. My gallant and noble steed refused to jolt along on two cylinders, and after much snorting and puffing, stalled. It did this little thing no less than five times, and of course every time it did so, 1 had to play “Joe the mechanic.” By the time we drew up in front of Phil’s White Elephant, the sweet young member of the “Speaker Sex” at my side was fit to be tied. Long before I had found out that she was no agent of commiseration and had resigned myself accordingly. We certainly did enjoy the dance, I think I had one dance with her all evening. After the ball was over, and I had gotten my top-coat with a minimum amount of argument, we proceeded to the street. We alighted on the pavement without mis- hap, and my “sugar” struts right past “Ex-lax” and hops into a taxi. I stood there with my mouth open, and scratching my head, until she brought me to, with a “Wake up and hear the grass grow, Sap, hop in and give yourself up.” Well from the experience I gain- ed that night reading meters, I should now be on the U. G. I. inspection staff. I just sat there with my eyes glued on that money extracting device, and all the while squeez- ing my last five spot, until Uncle Abe lost his usual kind and jovial expression. My companion of the mordant wit used it very effectively during our drive home. She had me biting my finger nails, and I uttered a sigh of relief when the beautiful residential section of Overbrook became visible to my bloodshot eyes. I discharged my liability without any formalities, and boarded a “Brill Special” for a morbid ride back to my “Leaping Lena.” During that gloomy ride I managed to gather together sufficient energy to cross her name off my address book. — H.T.C. ’29.

Page Two Hundred Eighty-two G=35i S3® Man in the course of his existence has accomplished works which even in these days are called wonders. I pause to mention the great Pyramids of the Ancients, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Sphynx, the Panama Canal, the Eighth Street Bridge, and others of the Seven Wonders of the world. Man has built mansions, sky scrapers, great dams, beautiful cathedrals, and schools of education. With electricity he has produced power to accomplish other wonders. Automobiles, Fords, airships, railroads, gigantic steamships and various modes of travel have made distance fade into a back- ground. All things have become systematized, business, industry, commerce, all this and more. With wireless and radio communication has been made possible between the darkest darkies of South Africa and the dudiest dudes of England. The lan- guages of every nation can be learned over night with scarcely an effort, by means of recognized correspondence schools. This in itself can be placed as an achievement that ranks with the greatest. But what are all these? When wonders of wonders, Herb Horner, with three deft twists of his wrist succeeded in getting a remonstrative chug from the old tin can he calls “pard.” Four or five would-be Latin sharks (Heist excluded) sitting in the back row in class evidently taking advantage of the Dean’s good nature (possibly because they thought he couldn’t see what was going on in class) were making use of “ponies” (you know what I mean.) Great was their surprise, when the Dean lay down his small pencil, looked up from his book and said, “Will the cavalry in the back row mount their trusty steeds, come galloping to the front, dismount, and rid themselves of a translation that one usually gets for twenty-three cents?” MORAL: Don’t translate everything that is in the “pony.” Animate £, Up-To-Date Page Two Hundred Eighty-three GSSe c. 19 2 7 Allentown Preparatory School This institution has a continuous history, extending over a period of more than fifty years, and it has been the secondary school of the majority of Muhlenberg students.

Schneider, Pres. Page Two Hundred Eighty-six C L.A The Sheik Meets His Waterloo The sheik is indeed proud of his conquests. Triumphantly he boasts of them to his friends. “Well!” says he, in a worldly wise manner, as he sits on a chair and swings one leg gracefully over the other, — “just returned from another heavy date. Quite a woman, quite a woman,” he continues, as if to soliloquize, “beautiful, to say the least. Perfect figure, wonderful personality, and the face of a Grecian goddess. Grace is a nice girl, I like her a lot — but — oh these women. The same thing always happens to me. I meet a girl, take her out once or twice and she falls desperately in love. As a result I am forced to discourage her and seek another companion. I like the companionship of a beautiful, intelligent women — but to love and cherish one for aye — ah — that is ian entirely different matter. Not for me. Ho hum.” He rises to his feet, stretches himself, and struts out of the room. He leaves his friends sitting there as he found them. Any ideas that they may have had on the subject were uncalled for, — hut just as well — they had listened to the words of a sage. Their knowledge of the subject was limited and mattered not. In the light of his superior knowledge their own was put to naught, just as the tiny lights of myriads of stars are blotted out by the superior brilliance of the sun. Time has passed and a change has come over the sheik. It is true that his clothes are pressed as neatly as ever, his shirt is as immaculately clean, his hair is combed with the same old precision, his shoes are as neatly shined and he still wears the same old kind of flashy ties; but he is no longer the carefree and contented chap of but a few months ago. It is in his general bearing that he is markedly different. He walks with “head in the clouds” and moves as if in a haze. He must be asked a question twice before he answers. No longer does he speak of his retinue of female admirers. In fact he speaks of scarcely anything, for he seems to be continually dreaming. Strangest of all, he has been seen not with a different girl each night, as heretofore, but always in the company of the same one. There is but one answer, one explanation to this situation — his infallibility is shattered — the sheik has met his Waterloo. While walking with his friends his attention is no longer called to a pretty face or a shapely leg. When he is asked concerning the beauty of a girl that is passing by, even though her eyes be limped pools of loveliness, bright as the stars of the milky way, though she be as alluring as a Circassian concubine, though she possesses the form of a Roman Diana with the majestic beauty of face of the Roumanian queen, in his eye she is but like an Irish washerwoman compared with his girl, the only girl, the sweetest girl in the world. She was slow to commit herself, this Sheba of his, and it was only after many weeks of suspense for the sheik that she finally added another fraternity pin to her collection. The sheik is cured for the present at least. He has found a remedy for his egotism. He has fallen. The tables have been turned. He is the vanquished. Poor sap, how he listens as she hands him, not the apple, as did mother Eve ; but Evelike, the apple sauce of an undying love, while he reciprocates with the soft soap of his first love, his one love, the greatest love in the world. — John H.

One never realizes how many fool people there are in this dumb world until that time when it becomes necessary for him to hurry in order to catch a train. At this time, of all times, he will find that there is always a group of ignoramuses blocking up each and every means of ingress to the waiting room. These groups may range, in the social scale, anywhere from fifth avenue tea-hounds to Pitts- ton bolsheviks. After one succeeds in gaining entrance, the real test begins. It seems as though the whole world is lying in wait with mischievous countenance read} ' at any moment to trip up the unwary traveler. If he be in a hurry the hazards are increased tenfold. Banana peels, hand bags, protruding legs, umbrellas, canes, packages, all are ready to do their bit by sending him crashing into the hilarious part of a fat old gentleman or careening over the aching corns of some sour dispositioned old maid. “Oh, 1 heg your pardon, madam. So sorry.” (The h — 1 I am. Why did’nt she keep that imp of a kid out; of the wav) — and very graciously I excuse mv clumsi- ness, pick little Willy up, dust him off and give him a dime. Thus the indignant mother is pacified for my having stumbled over her offspring and having kicked her in the shins. Now I’m off in another direction in a wild endeavor to reach the ticket office. “Pardon me, sir,” I sav to a fat old “rummy” as I give him a spiteful jab in the “belly” while wading through his little tete-a-tete with some sweet young “things” just back from finishing school for their informal loaf. No doubt it wasn’t a very nice thing for me to do ; but there is nothing quite so satisfying to righteous anger as to feel one’s elbow sink into, that boldest of all fronts, the blubhcrlike abdomen of a big, fat, self-conceited Romeo. He, who, instead of promptly relieving the con- gestion by withdrawing to a side, insists on gathering a group of sophisticated “honies” about him in a waiting room, most often where traffic is greatest, standing usually in direct line with the ticket office. He does not fit the gathering — ’cocky as h — 1 he stands there — though distinctly out of place — A PLYMOUTH ROCK COCK AMONGST PEA-HENS. “Hurrah for the ladies! God bless m but keep them out of the road when I’m in a hurry, and yet — when they’re pretty enough, and my fat obstacles are not too stupid looking, I usually find a more roundabout course to a ticket office — but such is the way of all gentlemen. I am now but ten strong smelling distances away from my objective. Momma and poppa garlick and all the little “garlickers,” as well as a prolific few of the im- mediate relation, are gathered ten deep about the ticket booth. Gosh but I feel sorry for the ticket agent as he stands there tranquilly answering questions and waiting on these dusky sons and daughters of old Rome. I cannot help but admire his un- flinching stand, no less courageous than the facing of mustard gas in a trench. The noble, self-sacrificing task of a ticket agent is not lauded enough by the press, and the part he takes in the assimilation of his country’s millions should be sung through the ages. At this moment I became conscious of another odor, the fumes of a strong smell- ing cigar. I had never thought it pleasant before ; but now it seemed a godsend, a veritable Attar of Roses in direct contrast with the whiffs of Neapolitan zephrs I had been inhaling. Finally the loyal sons of Garibaldi disperse and I slip up to the ticket office. I say slip because I did slip — on a “hunk” of bologna that one of the youngsters had dropped. While in the act of purchasing my ticket I noted that the nostrils of the ticket agent were plugged with cotton. To the side of him I noticed, on the counter, Page Two Hundred Eig hty-mne Page Two Hundred Ninety an uncorked bottle and an opened roll of cotton. This, then, explained his unflinching stand against this overwhelming odds of Mediterranean breezes. Listerine saturated cotton had been suggested by an onion ad in the “Post. " Now for the Holiday rush for the train. I pulled my hat more tightly over my head and do ia Red Grange line buck into the crowd of struggling humanity. The people are so eager in their attempts to board the trai ' n that it becomes almost as great a task to get off as to get on. One very eccentric lady, in particular, laden down with a great variety of assorted packages and reminding one of an overloaded mov- ing van, made her exit from the coach onto the platform. There she indignantly surveyed the struggling sea of humanity before her. The burly conductor stemmed the tide and she, after a moment’s hesitation, hurled herself, bundles and all, with a Steve Brodie-like look, into the “maelstrom.” “Heavens alive! My stars! Do be careful, people — how the fools shove — my canary birds — my canaries — you’ll crush them,” she pleaded, as she struggled through the tightly packed crowd, holding aloft a small shipping cage in which were con- tained her recently purchased songsters. “Canary bords — hell,” ejaculated a tough “bozo” beside me. “Jist so dis mob keeps offen me ‘dogs’ I’ll be all ‘Jake.’ ” Time has passed, 1 am now aboard the train, I reflect. In a reverie I picture the tough bozo easing his sore, tired and corn infested dogs. I see my fat waiting room friend crowing to the pretty peahens. I see the bundle beladen lady hurrying homeward. I see her showing the canary birds to her husband ; but like all husbands he is not interested in canary birds, blue birds or any other kind of birds — his thought is elsewhere — he is thinking of — ; but now my reverie is broken by the gruff voice of the conductor. I see the lights of a great city, the voice of the conductor becomes more intelligible, HAZLETON — HAZLETON — he calls, and to me that name means HOME. — Hersker, ’29.

Page Two Hundred Ninety six A Male Siren This man, all by himself, is one of the greatest portable necking parties on the campus. He does not possess in his general make-up, the semblance of one given over to that diversion, but rather his conservative dress, high forehead and horn- rimmed glasses produce an innocuous, scholarly appearance. This brief description may tend to make my committal seem inconsistent, but contrary to nature’s laws he “necks,” not a buxom young debutante, but we, the members of his Math, class. If you want him to explain a problem, he will blithely waft over you in bounding rhythmatic strides, that makes him look as if he was chasing Peter Pan, and in a paternial manner slip his arm around your shoulder, moving his hand about in various directions while explaining the question that you “stumped.” This con- suetudinary habit of his may be the result of preoccupation, but l have my doubts. He is one of the wearers of the “coveted” M, but has no claim to the privilege of being considered an athlete. The Ciarla of long ago reveals the fact that he was manager of one of our less notable elevens of the past, in the days when men were men, and women were double-breasted and a touchdown counted five points. It cannot be denied that his clairvoyance and perceptibility in mathematical problems is astounding, but we students are aware of this and do not have to have it impiessed upon us as he so often does. When we have a written paper, his pet ex- pression is, “Well, you should be through now, as I have worked the four, and you should have your two done at least.” This just grates on everybody’s nerves, and as a result does not create such a favorable impression on his students. He is a native of a town that is named after food that we have frequently served to us at the Commons. I don’t think he bases his claim as a musical critic on that fact, but it is well known that his spare time is spent listening to the sublime strains of the opera. May he rest in peace. 1 The man who is against something always makes more noise than the man who is for something. 2 A lot of folks would enjoy summer better if they could fuss with the janitor about the heat. 3 One should take care not to grow too wise for so great a pleasure as laughter. 4 Out of the lowest depths there is a path to the loftiest height. 5 Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in our own sunshine. 6 Give what you have to some one, it may be better than you dare to think. 7 How soon would the millenium come if the good things people intend to do to- morrow were only done today. 8 Gather the crumbs of happiness and they will make you a loaf of contentment. 9 He who is his own friend is a friend to all men. 10 There are plenty of acquaintances in this world, but very few real friends. 1 1 Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.

I Page Two Hundred Ninety-eight An editor, just about to go to press, “pied” a couple of articles, one concerning a public sale and the other a write-up of a wedding. He asked the office devil to get the two togther — and he did. Here is how he put the two together, and the mixture was not known to the editor until an angry preacher and the mother of the bride appeared on the scene: “William Smith and Miss Lucy Anderson were disposed of at a public auction at my barn two miles east of a beautiful cluster of roses on her breast and two white calves before a background of farm implements too numerous to mention in the presence of about seventy guests including three milch cows, six mules and a bob-sled. Rev. Jackson tied the municipal knot with about 200 feet of hay rope ; the bridal couple left on one John Deere plow for an extended trip with terms to suit the pur- chaser. They will be at home to their friends with one good wheelbarrow and a few kitchen utensils, after ten months from date of sale, to responsible parties and some fifty chickens.” — Exchange. SWEET REVENGE Little Jack pointed at his sister’s sweetheart, Mr. Jones. “That guy kicked me yesterday,” he snarled, “but I got even with him, you bet your life. I mixed quinine with my sister’s face powder.” “ . . . TURNETH AWAY WRATH” A local lady was waiting to buy a ticket at the theatre, when a stranger bumped her shoulder. She glared at him, feeling that it was done intentionally. “Well,” he growled, “don’t eat me up.” ‘A ou are in no danger, sir,” she said, “I am a Jewess.” 5 © Page Two Hundred.

Several weeks ago a Muhlenberg Frosh was scalded with hot water by a pretty waitress in a local restaurant; one week later they were married. Within a few days after that, one hundred and fifteen Muhlenberg men were similarly scalded. Who ?? Page Three Hundred One Kaeppel Charles W.

Fine Trotters, Ponies, Horses This sale includes everything used by the present Juniors; also with each sale is included an efficient rider and full instructions. We specialize in horses with recognized pedigrees that date back as far as LIVY, CICERO, HORACE and SAL- LUST. The whole cavalry under the command of Lt. Charles Shimer will be dis- banded and all horses sold at a sacrifice. As a special inducement we offer at a low rate those thoroughbreds formerly used by Chaplains Kapp, Jones and Heist. Althof offers for sale one handsome pacer personally trained in his stables; this goes to the highest bidder. Those used by Lumley, Andrews and Geissinger will be sold excep- tionally cheap due to blindness, causing the riders to stumble in a hot contest. We specially recommend the one used by Wurtz, since with it goes the magical charm of handshaking, and the art of bluffing. This sale will be personally conducted by Kistler, whose knowledge of horse-breeding is astounding. TIME. Any old time. PLACE. Sixth floor of the “Ad” Building, third door to the right. AUCTIONEER.

And if I have the gift of gab and know all mysteries and knowledge of the art of bluffing and have all faith in the art but have not studied, I have flunked. And if I bestow words of praise upon my professor and if I give my hand to him in greeting it proviteth me not. Bluffing suffers much and is amusing, bluffing is not envied, is not vaunted, is puffed up, becometh itself unseemingly, seeketh A’s, is provoked when it taketh account of D’s. Rejoiceth in flowery language, but rejoiceth not in quizzes. Bluffing ever fails. Whether there be ponies they shall be done away with, whether there be cribs they shall be taken, and whether there be exams bluffing ceases. For a bluffer knows in part and speaks in part, but when exams come that which is bluffing shall be done away. When I was a freshman I bluffed as a freshman, I cribbed as a freshman, I flunked as a freshman, but now that I am become a Sophomore 1 put away useless ponies, for now I see darkly in the distance, but when mid-years is come, then face to face shall I know fully what I now know in part. Now abideth these three things, Bluffing, Cribbing and Study, but the greatest of these is Study. — S. R. A nervous woman went to have her throat examined by a specialist, who, while adjusting the laryngoscope, remarked: “You’d be surprised to know how far down we can see with this instrument.” “Is that so, doctor,” faltered the patient.

Honor in Business lfl 3 V ' " pHERE is an honor in business that is the fine gold of it; that reckons with every man justly; that loves light; that regards kindness and fairness more highly than goods or prices or profits. It becomes a man more than his furnishings or his house. It speaks for him in the heart of everyone. His friend- ships are serene and secure. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow The Kutztown Publishing Co.

Page Three Hundred Sixteen 19 2 7 CIARLA 1 If this Track Meet Could Be Held at Muhlenberg The results of a track meet at Muhlenberg in which every one would have an equal chance, would read somewhat in the following manner. There could be no doubt about the results being correct if such a track meet were possible. The winners of this mythical meet have been selected with the greatest possible forethought and most careful deliberation. Heist has been carefully selected as the winner of the 2-mile crawl. The 32-inch sprint has been awarded to Lengle. Honors in the pole-vault would be carried off by Barnes. Record, 1 foot 9 inches. There can be no doubt about Beck winning the button-holing contest. Neely wins the sleeping contest, handicapped as he is bv flat feet. Fortunately for him Hirnisey is no longer here to participate. Handshaking Contest claims Althof as a winner. Wurtz is barred on account of professionalism. The hair raising match favors Dick Schoenly with a brass medal. No competition. Wilkinson would naturally place first in the “Charleston” contest. His steps are all original. Shimer easily carries off award in the long distance trot. His distance would probably amount to three laps around the Latin room. We figure that Gapp’s pony would drop over at the end of about two laps from abuse and over work. iAr AA Page Three Hundred Seventeen + — Dietrich Motor Car Company LAC J .
