Miller A The purpose of this book is to vivify the happy moments, memorable events and pleasing personalities of the past year. 4 D0Di H6io:ri The Class of 1929 considers it a peculiar privilege and a real pleasure to dedidate this book to Professor Preston A. Barba, A. M., Ph. D. To those who, in times past or present, have undertaken to study the German litera- ture under his guidance, any characterization of our beloved professor or justification for this dedication is totally unnecessary. They and we know him not merely as a sympathetic interpreter of a literature rich in genius and masterpiece, but as a philosopher of romantic idealism, a teacher of a broad humanism. An atmosphere of culture permeates his lectures; the hustle and bustle of the busy modern world cannot disturb the reflective peace and quiet of his classroom. Dr. Barba was born Aprd 7, 1883, in Bethlehem. He received his early education at the Allentown High and Bethlehem Preparatory Schools. In 1 906 he was graduated from Muhlenberg with the degree of A. B. At Yale he received his A. M. in 1907; at the University of Pennsyl- vania his doctor’s degree in 1911. His love for the Ger- man literature, fostered and intensified through his con- tacts with the late Dr. Wackernagel, Muhlenberg’s grand old man, finally brought him as a student to the fine old German universities of Goettingen, Berlin, Munich, and Heidelberg. His work as an instructor at the University of Indiana was brought to a sudden and unfortunate end by the outbreak of the World War and the rise of an unnat- ural prejudice against all things German. Thus, he returned to his alma mater in 1922 as professor of German. Doctor Barba, together with his former colleague, Professor Vos, have edited a selective compilation of Ger- man lyrics and ballads, well annotated. Since his arrival here he has been the founder and guiding spirit of a live and popular “Deutscher Verein.” For the past few years he has been conducting, each summer, tours of Europe, which are becoming increasingly popular. It is peculiarly fitting that this volume with its medieval art theme, so suggestive of the castled hills and cool shaded vales of German Romanticism, should be dedicated to him who has so often painted sympathetically these same pictures in the classroom.

Not only because of the ease of saying it, but because of the wonderful associations this class carries with it. The classes of ’27 and ’29 may justly be proud of their close contact with the class of ’28. Have we ever bowed to other classes? No! With heads held high we used the back steps of the “Ad” Building. Despite the handicap of having lost many men for the scraps, through their playing on athletic teams, we gave the class of ’27 a beautiful bath in Cedar Creek. How about our banquet? That was a big racket, too. Feasting sumptuously and listening to those most noble and intelligent members of our population — professors, we thanked ourselve s again that 1928 was our class. Talk about sports look at the athletes the class of ’28 willingly bestowed on its Alma Mater. Such celebrities as Rice, Dickert, Borrell, Lawson, Hunsicker, Stout, Coldren, Donaldson, Gordon, Thompson, Mesics, Weide- moyer, Cressman and many others we numbered among our classmates. Do not mention debating —we have had men on the debating team for four years — a feat seldom equalled before. Hats off to Rhoda, Gaenzle, Schaertel and Schlegel. Last, but most important, we lost few men in transit to the sophomore year. SOPHOMORE YEAR The class of ’28 achieved unusual success in the class scraps this year, being the victors in every one. Not to be boastful or vain, but we do think that the frosh were lucky that year since there were no more class scraps. Suffice it to say that our class started many new traditions and penalties for wayward “greenies.” “Buffalo I am,” boys — that’s the place, mum’s the word. It was not necessary. We had a banquet never to be forgotten. Why? Ask a boy scout, he knows. Our athletes, politicians, debaters and scholars were with us yet, lest you forget, lest any one forget. Thus at the end of our underclass days we could look back over a past record seldom equalled before and, although far be it from us to discourage future classes, we think it will never be excelled. JUNIOR YEAR We were upperclassmen now. Did we realize it — even the Doctor had to tighten up a little bit or a junior would have displaced him. This was the year of organizations. The Science Club, Chess Club, Cue and Quill Club, Philos Club, and Alpha Sigma Rho all sprang up this year with the class of ’28 largely responsible. fll BIxft Muhlenberg’s best football season opened with our men playing the important positions. It seems that all through our college career our class has been called upon when varsity men were needed. Are we loyal? How could such a class be otherwise. How about the Pagan-Minister football game? With players on their lips and signals in their mouths the ministers once more bowed to that terrible Pagan onslaught. Let us glide into a beautiful waltz, in time with a wonderful (not an Allentown) orchestra and revert to the joyous memories of a never-to-be- forgotten dance — the Junior Prom. Now let us picture a little cabin up in the wilds of Summit Lawn. Page Mr. Volstead. Thompson would sure have had a wonderful career if Prohibition had missed us. We are glad that we did not own that cabin. SENIOR YEAR Let’s not call it our senior year, let’s call it our leap year! The wedding bells wrecked this class of ’28. Mesics, Snoich, Held and the rest of you — how could you? Our class was too famous; Cupid could not prevent its onslaughts. With our shoulders to the wheel we toiled through our senior year striving to get the coveted Bachelor’s degree. Examinations were taken as a matter of course. Seniors held all important offices and were the executives in all fields. Our athletes stuck to the end. Three out of the four years we were in college we beat Lehigh. When at last the time has shortened and we are about to leave our Alma Mater let us look back and repeat this little motto — “We did our best.” Muhlenberg, our Muhlenberg, has grown under our very eyes. We feel a part of it, we take pride in it, it is our heritage. With pleasant anticipations of coming back each year to our Alma Mater the class of ’28 pledges its loyalty to those ideals for which it stands. George S. Smith, Historian As our third term ended we sobered and produced a newer and better year book. Our childish things were put away and we resolved not to play firemen any longer as we took over the dignified derby. fll BIiifc Senior Statistics; Allentown, Pa James F.

At the opening exercises we were given valuable talks by Dr. Haas and other members of the faculty, the main address being delivered by Professor Fritsch. By one o’clock on the same day the new men had been duly made the Freshman Class of Muh- lenberg College and were to be seen wandering about with green tie and dink and a large green tag supported from the coat lapel. This card was a great source of worry to many, but looking back we can easily see the service it rendered in getting the new men acquainted with each other. Now that we were freshmen we had to do and not ask what we were doing. The first night at college the frosh dorm men were given the privi- lege of praying out of doors. Their earnest petitions for rain were duly answered, although the rest of the students who were out at the same time were not afflicted with the “down pour.” With the beginning of classes there was also a beginning of school traditions. Those which drew our attention most impressively were the Frosh-Soph scraps. In these we were rather unsuccessful and as a con- sequence we were told that we could enter the Ad Building only by using the rear steps leading into the basement. In one of the scraps there was a change from tradition. The football game was played by the college freshman team. Furthermore the sophomores were allowed their men on the varsity squad unless they were regulars. It was a hotly contested game with our misfortune in being the losers. Among the outstanding events in the second semester were our social functions. After many false alarms we held our freshman banquet at the Hotel Allen undisturbed by any of our soph friends. The banquet was a remarkable success. Among the speakers were Dr. Haas, Dean Ettinger and Mr. Gillespie. The great annual affair known as stunt day was now called to our attention much to our discomfort. After several postponements we were compelled to have our stunt day in the evening which was contrary to custom. For those who participated -well, enough said. The freshman dance came on apace. It was held after Easter vacation and was pronounced a great success by all present. Music was furnished by “Diney’s Dutch Dancelanders.” It was held on the roof garden of the Hotel Traylor. With the final examinations coming and going those of us who fared successfully now passed on to our sophomore privileges. SOPHOMORE YEAR Our return to school as sophomores was much more pleasant than our first visit. Were we sophisticated? True to form we should say we were. Having completed one year’s education we rated now. With our superior feeling we entered the traditional fights with the lowly wearers of the green. Perhaps that is why we know more now than we did then, who can tell? As freshmen we easily manufactured a sob story of defeat, for freshmen are supposed to be down-trodden. But really, as sophomores — well, defeated we were, so why beat around the bush. The interclass football game was again played only by those not connected with the varsity squad. It was played on a muddy field amid thrills and thrills to our advantage for about nine-tenths of the game. By a stiff fight on the part of the greenies the battle finally ended with a scoreless tie. The freshman class, being extraordinarily strong and powerful this year, com- pared with former classes, it was victorious in the scraps following, much to our regret and discomfiture. Shortly after Thanksgiving we completed our banquet plans, holding it at Shankweiler’s along the Slatington Pike. Professor Simpson was our speaker for the affair, with short remarks by some of the more promi- nent members of the class. Midyears came again and robbed us of several men. The attention was called to the election of officers for the Ciarla, which resulted in the production of this book under the direction of the able editor, Mr. Shimer. Spring now arrived and our important history for the year closed at Class Day, when we received the “Beer Stein” as our heritage from the Junior Class. JUNIOR YEAR Summer vacation being over we now return to school as upperclassmen. After greeting each other we were immediately set to work. The news spread that one who was fully capable of great achievements, one who had achieved much in his first two years at college, one who was beloved by all who came in contact with him, was not to return to our midst again. John Mattes had been the victim of a drowning accident during the summer. The class deeply mourned the loss of such a dear member. Being juniors we had to act our part now. As customary we had our Pagan-Minister football game. The Ministers left the field victoriously, having put the Pagans to rout. The game was a very spectacular one with all kinds of uniforms on the field. Not a single real football uniform was to be seen anywhere. Midyears approached, but by this time they were natural to us. No longer did it hold the student of ’29 by the throat. The remaining part of the year witnesses among its important events the Junior Prom and the Junior Ausflug. Finally the preparation of this year book is numbered among the outstanding accomplishments of the year. Edwin E. Leidich, Historian TRYON FRITCH BAUER “Sam” is one of those high-hat B. S. men whom no one gets a chance to see unless he happens to have the honor of attending classes with him. Although “Sam” never misses a varsity event, he rarely participates in campus affairs and to those who know him this is a keen dis- appointment, for “Sam” is a good all- round man and a thorough mixer. If Muhlenberg had an aquatic squad, how- ever, we could count on him to bring home the laurels. “Sam’s” special interests lie in the vast fields of science, and since there is much yet to be discovered, we feel certain that some day “Sam” will add his name to the great list of those who went before.

They don’t come smoother than “good ol’ Fruit” and many a feminine heart has been started jumping just a bit faster when this living exponent of Hart, ShafFner Marx strolled into view. It is all in vain, however, for there’s a dear little girl in the West . “Try” doesn’t seem to have a weakness for any one particular kind of recreation, but gets a big kick out of any- thing “that’s being done.” When it comes to tickling the ivories " Try’s” all there. Talented, both socially and scholastically, there’ll be no keeping him down in the great world of finance. VICTOR R. BENNETT OHNSON Ph. B. Band (3). Pan-Hellenic Council (3). Kappa Phi Kappa. Victor came to us in September after he spent five years teaching high school, but it was not long before he was well known and well liked on the campus. His dark glasses and mustache give him a dignified appearance which makes many of the underclassmen think he is a professor. He hails from Johnson City, but that does not keep him from liking the Keystone state, especially one section of Wilkes-Barre, where a fair maiden has won his admira- tion. Victor is a very conscientious worker, be seen by his scholastic standing, member of Kappa Phi Kappa, and intends to follow the teaching profession when he leaves school. We wish him the as can WILLIAM CLAUSS BERKEMEYER Allentown, Pa. A. B. German Club, Secretary-Treasurer (3). Classical Club, Secretary-Treasurer (3). Band (1,2,3). Ciarla Staff (3).

Like Alexander, he sought in Muhlenberg, a new world to conquer and he did just that. Scholastic honors, of course, have not been wanting to this energetic young man, but naturally, he was not content with these alone. William toots a mean cornet in the band and a football game, whether at home or on foreign territory, whence his faithful “Chevie” has carried him, is not a game without “Bill.” He also does journalistic work, laboring as assistant editor of the Ciarla. “Bill” intends entering the min- istry and is a worthy candidate, we are cer- tain. Here’s luck to you, “Bill”! RALPH A. BERND Ph. B. Business Association (3). Weekly Staff (1, 2, 3). Assistant Basketball Manager (3). Some one has told us it was after looking at this specimen of humanity, the bard uttered his immortal words, “God’s gift to the fair sex,” and during his stay at Berg, Ralph has lived up to his reputa- tion in every sense of the word. But what fair maiden does not dote on such a hand- some physiognomy as this young man advertises. Ralph tells us that he is pre- paring for a business career and if Professor Bowman’s classes and a pleasing per- sonality contribute toward making a suc- cessful man, we feel certain this product of Sellersville will emulate Morgan, Rocke- feller, or some of the other noteworthies ALPH J. ALBERT BILLY Garfield, N. J. German Club. Ministerial Club. Lo! We have before our eyes another representative of the cream of Jersey. “Bill” is one of our most popular class- mates and his popularity is also shared by the weaker sex. Such popularity must be deserved. “Bill” is best known to us as the main factor in the defeat of the Pagans by the scoring of his touchdown. We also expect much of him in track. “Bill” is preparing for the ministry, and with his jovial disposition and ability he can hardly fail to be a success. CLARENCE ALBERT BOYER A. B. Secretary, Student Council (3). Ciarla Staff (3). German Club (3). As he strolls into view, with his little white hat perched on the top of his head, the beholder immediately has visions of yellow sheets of paper marked, “One Dollar Fine.” Terror striking as he may be in his role of Student Council execu- tioner, he causes little fear to his friends and those who know him in other than his official capacity. A staunch supporter of his native state, he still admits that Penn- sylvania has its attractions, although he is a bit hazy as to its geography. Busy as all great men, he manages to fill a large position in campus affairs, believing that to convert college men, it is necessary to know them. EDWARD JAMES BOYLE Allentown, Pa. ©YQ B. S.

At present he is laboring under a heavy handi- cap, in that he is so busy attending to extra- curricular activities that it is only with rare will power that he can find time to devote to getting “A’s.” In spite of this, he doesn’t let his work suffer too much, for he vows that some time he will get all “A’s.” An ardent tennis fan, he can be found on the courts almost any fine day. He is also a star in the pre-gymnasium “basketball” games. ALBERT HUGO BUHL Utica, N. Y. A. B. German Club (2, 3), Secretary (3). Cue and Quill Club (2, 3). Chess Club (2, 3), Secretary (3).

Buhl’s chosen calling is the ministry and we wish him all the success that he deserves for his sincerity and actions. Bunger 1 REUBEN WALTER BUNGER Bethlehem, Pa. Ph. B. Romance Language Club (3). Reuben certainly is an affable fellow and can appreciate good jokes — at the expense of others. We are not sure just as to where his interests really lie, but we do know that he is not annoyed by the fair sex, or at least so he tells us. Being a day student, Bunger is not so well known to the fellows on the campus, but those who do know him find in him a good and true friend. Graduation will usher our friend into the profession of teaching, where, we feel, his excellent qualities and fine personality will win for him all the success we wish him. JAMES JOHN BUTLER Wilkes-Barre, Pa Philos Ask him where he lives and he will give you a confused, indeterminate look. He, himself, doesn’t know if it is West Berks, Twelfth Street or Wilkes-Barre. “Jim” is really too conscientious to be in college, but wait until he gets to be a college pro- He certainly will have to change a came to Muhlenberg, as the rest of us and But he learned quite freshman and took a post-grad- under his roommate in his As a result, even his Dorothy declares that her “Baby Face” uses as fine technique as she had been accustomed. fessor lot.

Chess Club (3) It seems that Carson took a liking to Muhlenberg, and left the halls of our rival Lehigh. The Glee Club was fortunate in getting such a man, in that “Kit” was on the Glee Club at Lehigh. The only thing that he dislikes in the club is that it is too dry for him. If you can’t find Carson around school, just look in Dr. Haas’ office and there you can see him using up the Doctor’s time. Yes, “Kit” is interested in philosophy, but Latin finds him a star. Every Sunday finds “Pope” Carson at his Hellertown charge, and some day we may read of “Kit”, becoming a bishop in the Episcopal Church. WILLIAM CHAPMAN Ph. B. Class President (1). Freshman Basketball Captain. Varsity Basketball (2, 3). Freshman Football. Varsity Football (2, 3). Track (1, 2, 3). " M” Club Treasurer. Gaze on this young fellow, who has fallen before the onslaughts of Cupid (and Milly), even though he was able to hold the line against stronger opponents. A shark at Math, an athlete par excellence, and well, ask her about the rest. However, " Bill’s” popularity is not seriously handi- capped by this social feature, for he has won his place in the hearts of his fellow- students. " Bill” hails from Belleville, N. J., and has brought us weird tales. Some day another Columbus will set sail to verify the existence of such a place. But, then — good luck, “Bill,” and don’t forget the cigars. ARTHUR ROBERT CHATTEN ASP A. B. Track (1, 2). M. C. A. (1, 2, 3). Class Vice-President (3). Glee Club (3). Ciarla Staff. Romance Language Club (3). Science Club (3). Classical Club (3). Behold! A manly young fellow! Just gaze upon his countenance and you will say the same. Not only is Chester, but also Muhlenberg proud to claim Arthur as one of her most worthy young men. " Art,” as he is commonly called, is a like- able chap and popular on the campus. He always has a glad hand for every one. Our young tenor, for he is a member of the Glee Club, is a lover of sports, espe- cially track, in which he very ably shows his fleetness. He is a quiet, intelligent, and ardent student? His ambition is to preach the gospel truth, and we wish him all success in his high calling. HARRY PETER CREVELING Allentown, Pa Ph. B. Muhlenberg Business Association (3) — jSGerman Club (3)v V C Harry is a graduate of Allentown Pre- paratory School. His home is a little farm- house halfway between here and Emaus. He came to ’Berg without heralding of trumpets and is likely to leave in the same unassuming manner. He desires to study law and is diligently preparing himself for that vocation. His love and capability for an argument are well known and capital- ized by his friends who are many. Der Deutsche Verein claims him as a loyal member. All activities at Berg, athletic or scholastic, find him a staunch supporter. Temple or Dickinson is his next stopping place on the road to success. Hank HAMILTON TAYLOR CROWELL Philadelphia, Pa. Ph. B. Football (1, 2, 3). Baseball (1, 2, 3). Basketball (1,2, 3). Here is one of those indomitable spirits who seeks ever to elevate himself to the seats of the mighty and great, which is praiseworthy. His endeavors find him diligently pursuing the muse of education, as well as toying with the Gods of the Olympic games. His thin shanks clothed in trousers a trifle too short, and immodestly disclosing his ankles; his red sweater, and brown duster coat are familiar on the campus and entitle him to the sobriquet of “Hank.” “Hank” has the reputation of trying anything, but he shatters the old saying by sticking to it, whether he has the ability or not. Such a man is bound to succeed, and we extend him our well wishes. AUGUSTUS WILLIAM DAY Allentown. Pa. ' [ KT A. B. Student Council (3). M. (2,3). Football (1) Although born and raised in Sellersville, “Gus” claims he is of English origin. “Gus,” who is a genius in many ways, cut his first teeth at the age of six months, talked at one year and, sad, but true, began taking vocal lessons but a year after that. He came to Muhlenberg with the class of 1927, but after one year was called to Philadelphia to straighten out the financial difficulties of some firm or other. " Gus’’ got back as a member of 1929. A. William has always had the reputation of being a deep thinking student, but last year he gave up the right of thinking for himself and, alas, he did that in a church and in front of a minister. Wally WALLACE H. DEEBEL Ringtown, Pa. “Wally,’’ as he is familiarly called, came to us in the fall of 1927 and soon found and held a place in the hearts of his classmates and friends. Before he enrolled at Muh- lenberg, he attended Keystone State Nor- mal School and then taught school for two years. Later and at the time of his enrollment he held a clerical position in the Bethlehem Steel Works. He intends to resume teaching after graduation. Al- though he is a man who goes quietly about his work, he is nevertheless one of ability. He often captivates his friends by his keen sense of humor and clever wit. We know that with his ability and perseverance he will reach the high water mark and we wish him a long and successful career. PAUL WILLIAM DIECKMAN East Mauch Chunk, Pa. A. B. Glee Club (1,2, 3), Assistant Manager (3). Class Treasurer (3). Classical Club. Student Council (3). Ciarla Staff. Behold, a lad with curly hair and charming personality. It is to him, in part, the credit of the photography section of this volume is due. As a warbler in the Glee Club “Dick” annually captures new hearts on its pilgrimages. Besides officiat- ing in front of the curtain, “Dick” also proved himself a capable manager. We predict that next year New York City will be listed in the itinerary of the Glee Club (?). As a student, yet a jolly good fellow, a combination hard to beat, we wish Paul the success of another of the same name in spreading and preaching the Christian doctrine, “Dick” NORMAN B. DINGER Reinholds, Pa. B. S. German Club (2, 3). Science Club (2, 3), Vice-President (3). Student Assistant in Chemistry. “Norm” admits that he studies as much as any one around him and one would gather from his voluminous notebooks that he does little idle reading. His poring must necessarily be painstaking to quench his insatiable thirst for details. But he does more than study. During the day his spare time is spent in the laboratory or at some less instructive work; he never misses an athletic event, nor a chance to solve some philosophical problem. But he has done more than many of us can claim to have done: while in school unsel- fishly devoted time and labor that others might have the same opportunities he has had. His conscientiousness, painstaking ways, and ability at explanation insure him success in the teaching profession. “Norm 4 KARL Y. DONECKER Allentown, Pa. Ph. B. Student Council (3). Cue and Quill Club (3). Class President (3). Assistant Debate Man- ager (2, 3). Ciarla Staff (3). Muhlenberg’s Adonis. That remark has been very aptly applied to Karl, as he rolls around in that Peerless of his. Always in a hurry, always busy, yet he still has enough time to drag around a “yes man.” In the field of debating he has done wonders, working on its business and publicity end. This valuable training stood him in good stead in many instances, the most notable of which was the way he passed Math. Socially, Karl certainly rates high with all of them. No affair is complete without his blonde radiance. Yonkers, N. Y. f KT B. S. Dramatic Club. Assistant Cheerleader (3). Track (1,2). Yonkers is proud of “Freddy” and so is the Junior Class. Born on St. Patrick’s Day, the event hailed with joy in his family, “Freddie” received some Irish tendencies. He never quits. Especially when leading cheers this spirit is shown. He doesn’t seem to realize that some people are liable to sore throat. “Freddie” is a red hot athlete, plays a nasty game of basketball in the intermurals, and when it comes to heaving a pass in touch football, can’t be beaten. However, it is feared that golf has defeated him. “Freddie” deserves the best of wishes of every one in making a successful teacher, but he doesn’t need them to get a wife. “Karl” “Freddie” JAMES EDWARD DRURY Wilkes-Barre, Pa I’KT “Jimmy” has a natural bump for curiosity. It began when he was but eight months of age, when he tried to find the motivating influence of his father’s 18-jewel watch. Today he gives it an airing in the radio laboratory.

But he is not only all around on the campus, but also all around town. His acquaintances are scattered all the way from the river to the Crest, where they reach their peak. IMMY Dunk’ GEORGE A. DUNKELBERGER Kutztown, Pa. Although it is not known to many, George is one of the best fellows we have. He belongs to that B. S. group of jokers, gripers, razzers, or what have you. “Dunk” is an exceedingly busy man and to attend to all of his activities necessitates speed. Suffice it to say that he and his Buick produce that self-same necessity, and how! Just now his most important busi- ness demands his time and presence on West Main Street. How George is devoted to this business is — well it’s nobody’s business. His ambition seems to be characteristic of his family and in this way, as in many others, he is a chip off the old block.

William is a scientific student on the campus and is very scientific in his way of living and study; that is, in all except one thing, he is very unscientific (but successful) in his way of wooing. “Bill” goes about it in exactly the same manner as any A.

He intends to return to the old homestead at Slatington after graduation and teach the children of his home town the mysteries and joys of scientific research. FREDERICK FERNSLER Lebanon, Pa.

Any mention of Jersey Shore in his presence enraptures him and most vio- lently quickens his pulse. There is a reason — ah, yes — she is all the reason in the world for Wilbur.

EDWARD S. GROSS Irvington, N. J. In his own mind, “Ed” has the right information on everything. No one ever questions him, as he would not understand them. He imagines he is quite the ladies’ man, a twentieth century Gideon. “Ed” has accomplished several noteworthy things at school; for instance, after three years of hard effort he has a chance to pass Math. The freshman “Bible” is indebted to him for securing the advertising. He is also the cause of several of those battered pieces of tin, which bear some resemblance to an automobile, being on the campus. After graduation, “Ed” expects to enter the great world of business and we are sure he will m ake Henry Ford sit up and take notice some day. “ Ed” GEORGE A. GUENSCH Port Carbon, Pa, Science Club. Freshman Football Manager, George is one of the few fortunate boys about the campus who has attained the position of manager of the Freshman foot- ball team. Every year a number of men appear on the field “scrubbing” for their positions, but only one man can be elected, therefore, we call George fortunate. George always has a ready “howdy” for every one and is always ready to do his bit in helping to make another friend’s work a little easier. When it comes to playing basketball George can show his team what people mean by a “good guard,” as was shown in the Intramural League last year. We hope that when George leaves this institution to enter the ministry he will succeed as well as he has here. Heck CARLTON LUTHER HECKMAN A. B. German Club (2. 3). Classical Club (3).

Carlton is that sober young man with the ministerial air who is frequently seen with portfolio in hand on the road to St. John’s or to some other church where he will teach. This is only one of his hobbies, however. He has participated in athletics and has shown his ability in class admin- istration, but most of all he has helped build up the Weekly to its present high standard by his journalistic talent and his conscientiousness. With all these distractions he has always been well up in his class work and friendly and sociable with every one he meets.

As a con- sequence he has been entrusted with several responsible positions on the campus. Cheerful and sympathetic he has been able to keep the friendships won and has widened his interests thereby. Nothing is more characteristic of the man than his readiness to co-operate in any worthy cause and his untiring efforts to build up the organizations with which he has bec ome affiliated.

Few plays ever get through this stalwart lad and of no man is he afraid, but of the opposite sex — “We would rather not talk about that.” A fun-loving, big-hearted chap — that’s “Steve.” After leaving Muhlenberg “Steve” plans for a coaching and teaching career and with him goes ’29’s best wishes. ■‘s; “Mr. Jarvis” Behold the “Grand Old Man” of the class and a bad bet for any class with an ambition to pla tivy. “Mr. Jarvis,” for it would be entirely inappropriate to speak of him otherwise than as “Mister,” is quite an important figure on the campus and an object of awe to many of the fresh- men who take him for a professor. Mr. Jarvis’ conversation abounds in adjectival explosions and flowery diction such as poets usually rave about, and centered very largely upon the topic of “A little golden-haired boy.” With his previous experience in teaching he should be able to secure an exceptionally good position and achieve great success.

While it would take a capable prophet to build a definite future from “Hock’s” disjointed past, it does not require much imagination to picture the wishes of his friends coming true; to see him end his college days with two years of success; athletically, socially, and in every other way.

The Senior Class has the distinction of having quite a number of hunters in its midst.

The Zoology Class is never a success if this illustrious member does not ask a question or does not borrow his co-worker’s eraser. It is an enjoyment for him to pester his fellow students with questions, not only in zoology, but likewise in chemistry. At present he is striving very hard in the Science Course to become fully prepared for medicine and surgery, from which he expects his earnings in the future. RALPH WEINHOLD KIEFFER Shillington, Pa.

Walter seldom, if ever, takes an active part in campus life. Notwithstanding, every one is only too glad to call him friend, for he has that rare gift of making lasting friendship. Walter studied ear- nestly while with us, but his interest in classes has only been half-hearted, for he hastens down as soon as are over town to take an active part in Christian education. But he always has time for a theological discussion and for art study. He has made a name for himself in church life while at college; what can he not do when all his time will be devoted to his favorite theme! THEODORE LUTHER KUDER Philadelphia, Pa. Philos Scholastically speaking, " Ted” is one of the intelligencia. Greatly interested in the literature of the day, and striving to fulfill his obligations in the English Department by reading all the books Professor Simpson recommends, “Ted” is keeping the library books from an accumulation of dust. Theodore’s hand- writing is a subject for character study, and his inability to write legibly prevents most profs from reading his quiz papers, consequently they give him the benefit of the doubt. A typical representative of our quaker city of brotherhood, Kuder is a good handshaker and a friend of all. Good luck, “Ted,” as you instruct the younger generation in the wisdom and precepts of learning. HAROLD WILLIAM LAROS B. Glee Club (1,2, 3). Band (1, 2, 3) President (3).

But “Sam” has not labored under that delusion. He has taken college at its face value and college has taken him for what he is, a good student, a jolly fellow and a Tilden in tennis. How often has his manly voice entertained us in the locker rooms? How often have we seen him effectively wield that racquet? Besides creating so much racket in tennis he makes more strumming a banjo. But we cannot hate him on account of this, for he has always been a good entertainer, especially to the sophomores during his freshman year and to the girls the other three years. WALTER E.

With all his outside activities, including frequent trips to West Chester, “Gil” has been consistent in his studies. His perfect poker face has earned for him the commendation of the great Dr. Wright, even if “Abe” does have some difficulty in locating the Azores. But what value are the Azores to “Abe” in his intended profession, “the Christian ministry”? To this end “Gil” carries with him our best wishes. JOHN GERALD McGINLEY Allentown, Pa. Business Association (3). Assistant Foot ball Manager (3). A broad smile and a few freckles sprin- kled on the map of Ireland, ready wit and an unusually sunny nature — that’s “Mac.” Oh, yes, Allentown was his birthplace, but v’s and w’s are mere trifles in his young and innocent life. Versatility is this fellow’s strong point. He can do to perfection any number of surprising tasks, such as running fraternity dances, driving that “Tudor” sedan, and initiating those real “blowouts” which are not to be taken in reference to the automobile industry. With all these wonderful qualities of per- sonality “Mac” should be a rousing suc- cess in his chosen life work — in fact, he should feel perfectly at home at the bar. EDGAR JOHN McNABB Kutztown, Pa Philos 1 his specimen or the rare type ot intelli- gence was produced in the great metropolis of Kutztown. “Mac” outgrew the town, so after graduating from the State Normal School, he decided to continue his academic attainments and honor Allentown with his presence at Berg. The cinder path received much of “Mac’s” time last spring, and he showed good form in the intramural meet. But Edgar has a very sensitive heart, and consequently has been receiving frequent treatments from a certain miss at the hospital. “Mac” is a typical stu- dent and has the happy vision of an Utopia, where he will not be harassed by midyear or final exams. We wish you luck, “Mac,” in the educational field. STEPHEN MEDVID Mahanoy City, Pa. A. B. German Club (3). Classical Club (3). The short chap with the smile. That is the thing that characterizes this young from the coal man trom the coal regions, as he goes about the campus of Muhlenberg. “Steve” intends to enter the ministry and if the coaching of “Nick” Borrell can do any- thing to make a man win success, “Steve” will attain to great heights, for he reads his sermons in Slovak to “Nick.” “Steve” has not yet achieved that important requisite of a regular college man, namely, “doing parlor duty,” but he is still quite young and has therefore a great and promising future. We feel reasonably sure that he will some day overcome even this great handicap and then his difficulties will all be little ones. Merk Dave DAVID MILLER Slattngton, Pa. B. S. David is one of our day students and so those who do not have him in their classes may not get to know him so well. When he is not in his classes he may usually be seen in the reading room. He is a rather quiet fellow, carefully minding his own business and letting others alone, although if you need any help he is always willing to do anything for you. Start a conversa- tion with him and you will find that he has a great hobby. He is probably one of the best hunters which the class possesses. His favorite subject is biology, where he is rating as a good student. His chosen pro- fession is medicine, for which we who know him think that he is well qualified. CLAIR JOSEPH MERKEL Macungie, Pa. B. S. German Club (3). Here we have the foremost student of the ancient science of physical phenomena of our class. It is said that his extra- ordinary interest in this branch of the world’s knowledge has caused him to make some of the following experiments: taking t ipson the Kutztown relic to study, in detail, the effect of forces on motion; playing basketball before gym class to study falling bodies; and skidding his car around the college campus to see the effects of friction. However, his interests are not confined to physics, for he is con- sidered one of the best shots at the cue gallery. The reader must already have arrived at the conclusion that Clair is going to teach physics after his graduation from college. GEORGE TISCHER MIELER Philadelphia, Pa. George is noted for his wonderful taciturn nature, and you may be assured that when he does speak he will say something worth while. George has distinguished himself in journalism, having served faithfully on the staff of the Weekly and having helped to make this book a great success. A most remarkable fact about him is that he has never been known to swear or drink or smoke, but he has been accused of prac- ticing that ancient art of “handshaking,” which seems to be so necessary in the life of most students. George is sure to make a great name for himself. Indeed, we expect some day to find that he is one of our country’s greatest preachers. Boova’ HOWARD D. MILLER Summit Hill, Pa Ph. B. Manager Track (3) Summit Hill’s greatest bid for world fame came in the dramatic and unexpected appointment of Howard D. Miller to the important post of ambassador to Germany. This piece of news was featured on the Muhlenberg campus shortly after Dr. Barba’s return to college last fall, and we believe that our red-caps will be worthily represented by this distinguished scholar and diplomat. “Boova,” however, does not believe in over-stressing the scholastic side of college life. His many week-end trips to a certain Philadelphia hospital are surely not for the purpose of attaining an extensive medical vocabulary. His future will probably lead him into the teaching profession, in which we predict a large measure of success for him. PAUL B. MILLER Allentown, Pa. German Club (3). Track (1,2, 3). Paul is one of our firmest believers in Pelmanism. Whenever a situation grows tense he is sure to be there. He also is a staunch believer that every man should possess versatility of “lines.” With the brilliance of his conversation and the charm of his personality, he claims that he can conquer any fair maiden’s heart in less than ten minutes. However, from his slavish attendance at Cedar Crest we conclude that the conqueror has himself been vanquished. Besides distinguishing himself not only in the classroom, but on the track as well, Paul runs a garage and promotes a basketball team. His aim is to become a Reformed clergyman. We wish him success.

We fear sometimes that Cupid has hit him with one of his arrows while he was recuperating from a football injury in the Allentown Hospital. Who can tell? But with his scholastic and athletic ability we know that he will make a name for himself in the coaching profession, which he intends to follow after he leaves Berg.

He has distinguished himself in many of his college activities. As secretary of the Oratorical Union he has performed a commendable task. In the future “Jack” will join the list of lawyers, where he will continue his well-known line of ‘‘shooting the bull,” as the college boys term it, and being very efficient at that task, his success is already assured.

That was ‘‘Bill.” If you see a 1924 model Chevrolet coming, that is ‘‘Bill” also. However, this car served a very useful purpose in acquiring ‘‘ads” for this year book, since “Bill” is our advertising manager. “Bill” is one man with a big heart. He never passes a fellow student with his car, without picking him up, if there is any room whatever. “Bill” expects to be a teacher some day and we hope he will not forget to share his big-heartedness with his pupils. We know he will make a fine teacher. DAVID NEUDORFER New Castle, Pa. B. S. Freshman Football. Varsity Football (2, 3). Pan-Hellenic Council (3). From Western Pennsylvania hails this tall and stalwart youth, with his auburn hair, which gives him the name he bears, “Reds.” Since his arrival at Berg not only has he been a loyal supporter of the Cardinal and Gray football team, but he has also developed a fondness for judging debates. In the latter case he allows himself to be swayed by the cleverness of feminine arguments and by the side which pays the greatest amount of money. “Dave” is going through Berg with the Ph. B.

Indeed, during his three years at Muhlenberg he has made quite a reputation for himself on the gridiron, on the cinder path, and in the cage. Unfortunately during the latter part of the football season this year “Tony” received some very severe injuries in his pedal extremities which necessitated a visit to the hospital. But perhaps he does not consider this event so very unfortunate as we may think, for we note that he has since paid many visits to the hospital, even though his disability has long since disappeared. Upon graduation “Tony” expects to enter the work of coaching and teaching, for which he will be well fitted. “Reds” ANTHONY A. PASCAL Belleville. N. J. Pony” MORRIS PERKIN Allentown, Pa. The metamorphosis of this man since his freshman year has been remarkable. Whether it has been the influence of the weaker sex or of college, it is hard to say, but it does prove the point that college broadens a man. By broaden we mean mentally with its effect on character. He has become smoothed out, very sociable, and in a sense aristocratic. Since “Moe” has ascended to the aristocracy, he has high aspirations which have cost him much perspiration. One of them is to go to Europe, the other to become a member of the legal profession. He has his mind clearly set on accomplishing both aims. It will require two continents to satisfy his desires, but “Moe’s” dreams are boundless. Here’s luck to’ him. OWEN CLINTON PHILLIPS A. B.

His wisdom is sufficiently proved by the calm assertion that he will never marry. " Phil” has shown good judgment in dividing his time. So much for study, so much for play, so much for fraternity business, and so on, ad finitum. That this takes will power is evidenced by the fact that he has to fight the women off to keep them from monopolizing his time. One look at that Jovian magnificence of facial lineaments explains the reason for his unrivaled popu- larity. Manager ISADORE RAPAPORT Allentown, Pa. A. B. Pan-Hellenic Council (3). Romance Lan- guage Club (3). “Rappy’s” amiable personality has placed him in high esteem among his fellow- students. He, indeed, is a jolly fellow, for he always has an abundance of jokes ready for you. His seriousness in his studies has rewarded him with a high scholastic standing. During lunch hour one can hear jazzy tunes furnished by “Is” on the piano. His fine technique has made him quite a master of that instrument. “Rappy” is known to handle a tennis racquet with great skill and many a ball has been put out of use by his effective cuts. Isadore intends to study law in which we wish him luck. Who knows but that he will ride his way to the bar with his faithful Schenkman Six. Rappy WEBSTER KEEHN REINERT Oley, Pa. A. B.

Then he came and joined our ranks with the intention of preparing for the ministry. “Web” is a quiet fellow, but he always has a bright smile when you meet him and you find him quite congenial to talk to. He has also shown himself a diligent student; his record in college has been one of which he can be proud. We don’t know exactly, but we have our suspicions as to the reason why he often travels down to Reading. It may be that there is an attraction of some fair one. However, that’s only a supposition, perhaps “Web” has another reason. EARL KLINE RITTER Pennsburg, Pa. Ph. B. German Club (3). Business Club (3). Earl may be seen every morning driving up to school in a car of a lesser class. He is one of our most faithful commuters, and at the same time one of our more prominent scholars. As a member in good standing of the German Club, he does not permit his leanings toward languages to keep him from being a good business man. His membership in the business organiza- tion of the college is a substantial proof of this. It has been whispered that after graduation Earl expects to direct the minds of the young into the rosy paths of knowledge and wisdom. In other words, he expects to teach. “Johnny’ JOHN FREDERICK RUCK COLLINGSWOOD, N. J. f KT A. B. German Club (2, 3). History Club (3). “Johnny” is more than just one of those things from Jersey. He looks, and acts, and often is found to be a real student. In fact, his attack on his favorite study, history, makes us fear that some day he is going to compile a bunch of statistics for future suffering schoolboys. “Johnny” has two favorite pastimes. One is to celebrate. You will always find him ready to celebrate anything from a Lehigh bonfire down to a parlor ' social. There can never be enough holidays and special events. His second joy is pool. Perhaps he is hoping to win a few silver cups for putting them in the pockets. But to see him wield a cue tells you why he is a source of fear to his fraternity brothers. «W8 MARTIN L. RUGLIO Philos Freshman Football. Varsity Football (2, 3). Freshman Baseball. Behold a would-be hero of the gridiron, but he couldn’t catch a forward pass with magnetic fingers. Remember the Lehigh Rug’’ turned game ot l zb. Last spring his attentions to track, but throwing the javelin injured and incapacitated his arm. “Rug’’ was captivated by the sign, “Fratern with Kern,” and immediately changed boarding houses to satisfy his capacity for pie and coffee. As one of Mealey’s aesthetic sheiks, Martin dances a mean step, and this may account for the increased patron- age when “Rug’s” on the floor. If you want to see the Italian imitation of an irritated Frenchman, just mention Corbiere in the presence of this young linguist. ELWOOD FREDERICK SAXER Dushore, Pa. A. B. Band (1, 2, 3). Weekly Staff (1, 2. 3) ClARLA Staff (3). Coming from Dushore, where men are men and women are nervous, “Sax” set out to become acquainted. He succeeded, very much so, in fact, with a certain girl from our sister institution, and now a dance at Cedar Crest would not be a success without his presence. It has been told us that “Sax” is bettering the com- munity of Catasauqua by assisting a certain minister of that place. The secret lies in the fact that the minister has a daughter. Aside from his amours, “Sax” participates in many activities on the campus. As a band master and an author- ity on the ancient Athenians, he has no equal. He has chosen law as his profession and we wish him luck. “Sax” FLOYD W. SCAEFFER B. S. Band (2, 3). Deutscher :iencs Club ( ., ?) Verein (2, 3). Floyd W. Scaeffer hailed into in our sophomore year after having tasted the teaching profession for several years. At first Floyd seems to be a rather quiet fellow, but wait after spending an evening in his midst, listening to his original humor colored with his vivid and emphatic forms of speech and you will say he has a pleasing disposition. His favorite subject seems to be chemistry, although his major is mathematics. He rates as a good student in all his subjects. Any evening in which he has leisure you can find him traveling to some good show down town. Last, but not least, he also has some social qualities which the Druid Club recognized in him when they took him in their midst. Floyd HENRY VICTOR SCHEIRER Fullerton, Pa. A. B. Debating (1,2, 3). Glee Club (3) Club (3). “Hen” is a born orator and h his best to develop his talents. Cc college with some previous experience, he immediately identified himself with debat- ing, as well as formal oratory. Indeed, he this year represented Muhlenberg in the Intercollegiate Oratoricals. “Hen” has taken a keen interest in other class and college activities, too, and is to a great degree responsible for the success of the prom, acting as chairman of the committee. In his classes he has always ranked well and has quite spent himself in his seeking after those things which will fit him for life. English, history and the social sciences, he hopes, will best prepare him to be another of our lawyers. History OWEN P. H. SCHELLHAMMER Allentown, Pa. And some affairs he has had (about 57, all different), in fact, his life was just one affair after another. “Steve” is in a con- stant state of effervescence. If you want to please him suggest a day’s march among the book and art shops in any large city, and you won’t be able to drag him away for hours. He has an insatiable penchant for new novels. He burns his candle late into the night, for he is a slave to that monster, “FICTION.” His forte is English and art. “Steve” plans to go to Greenwich Village for an indefinite stay. Just what he will do, we never can tell, yet we know that his merry grin will carry him through whate’er he goes in. CARL F. SCHMOYER Breinigsville, Pa. ASP B. S. Science Club (I). Here is one of the many busy boys of our class. In addition to schoolwork, Carl is kept bu sy helping his dad. Carl has the reputation of being a speed king, and when he goes out the William Penn high- way, every one says, “Gee, but that boy drives.” It must seem hard for Carl to drive in funerals, still he makes up for that. If any one thinks that he can play pool send him to Carl; he surely plays a mean game. He also is a fast stepper on the dance floor; no wonder all the girls want to dance with him. Well, good luck to you, Carl, some day you may give the finishing touches to one of us. NORMAN H I KT This cheery-faced individual is not Jack Holt, but only Norm,” the man about town and campus. He insists he is going to college in order to become world-wise, but every one knows he would rather go to Poplar Street for classes than any- where else. These classes he attends regularly and absorbs the instructions with never a single word of disapproval. “Norm” hails from the insignificant city of Bethlehem, which he nevertheless claims to be the greatest city on earth, both from a political and economic standpoint. “Norm” is interested in the scientific world and so intends to follow that branch of activity in life. We wish him the very best of luck. Norm CHARLES LLEWELLYN SHIMER Nazareth, Pa FRANK A. SPOTTS, J Barington, N. J. B. S. Football (I, 2, 3). Track (1, 2, 3). Baseball (1,2,3). “M” Club. Stauf A. B. Classical Club (3). German Club (2, 3). Student Council (3). Ciarla Staff (3). Ringtown will always feel proud of this most illustrious and talented son. Muh- lenberg, too, has found in him an ardent upholder and supporter. Eldred is not one who believes his college courses should interfere with his extra-mural activities, yet he has been active on the campus. Stauffer admits, with a twinkle in his eyes, that he has not yet found the young lady who suited his fancy enough to make her his partner for life, but with his pleasing personality and good disposition we are sure he will have no trouble in that line. The ministry is fortunate to have so sin- cere and enthusiastic a candidate as Eldred. “Frank’’ STANLEY E. STEIGERWALT t KT French Club (3). “Stan” claims Lehighton owns him as a citizen, but this is not entirely true because a certain young lady of that community must also be given consideration. “Stan” should live closer so we could enjoy some of the syncopated strains that come from his “sax,” but maybe it is for the best, because we would not like to see him and his “sax” thrown out of school by some lover of quietness. “Stan’s” greatest asset is his pleasing personality. He is never too busy to say “hello” or to lift a hand to help some one out of difficulty. In the classroom “Stan” ranks among the best and after leaving here intends to impart some of his knowledge to the rising genera- RUSSEL C. STRUBLE Perkasie, Pa. B. S. Student Council (3). Freshman Football and Baseball. Ciarla Staff (3). “Jock” says that the only classes he likes in college are Professor Ritter’s gym classes, because he gets such a big kick when he runs with his feet high in the rear. As a freshman, he declared himself a woman-hater, and it took two and a half years to convert him. When he isn’t sleeping, “Jock” can be found reading Thoreau, Dorsey, H. G. Wells, etc. He is well known by his ferocious, hardy phy- sique, his knowledge of constitutional law and his appetite for arguing with his collaborator, roommate. “Jock” has a hazy idea as to what he is going to do when he gets out of college. ALBERT MARTIN SWANK 1 KT A. B. Pan-Hellenic Council (3). Student Council (3). History Club (3). Weekly Staff (1 ). Romance Language Club (3). Scrub Basketball Manager (3). “Pep” is an important man, for he is considered the fashion plate of the college. Furthermore, he is a regular fountain of information, so that whenever one is in doubt as to what to wear, what team is the highest scorer, who built the Brooklyn bridge, or what is the capital of any state, Albert should be consulted. His intense desire to rest in the arms of Mor- pheus, only to be interrupted by going to classes occasionally, eating, and going out on a date, has led the fellows to affection- ately dub him “Pep.” All in all, Albert is a good student and an all-round good fellow. His ambition is to be a big salt man from New Rochelle. Trauch W. LESTER TRAUCH Bedminster, Pa. Ph. B. Romance Language Club (3). Lester makes you think of the English Parliament, he’s so dependable and con- servative. He is, and no doubt always will be, steady. Besides being one of the stand-bys in French Class (his translations are always in demand), his erudition con- cerning stage celebrities is unrivalled. He is a constant devotee of the theatre and at a moment’s notice bubbles over with incessant chatter as to the past, present and future of these stage-folk. Although he has achieved a really fine taste, he occasionally strikes the average. He is an ardent church enthusiast and attends twice on Sundays and once on all saints’ days. Another of Lester’s divertisements is fashionable church weddings and none of note in the Quaker City escape his attention. “Pep” GEORGE ADOLPH ULRICH Jenkintown, Pa. B. S. Freshman Football. Varsity Football (2. 3). Basketball ( bjg-T raclc fc F 2) . George holds a valuable possession in the college record for the hundred. An all-round athlete, his activities have mainly centered about the track, where he has made marked successes in the dashes and hurdles. But George has also made himself rather well known throughout the dorms as a practical jokester, a trait which has on several occasions earned him at least word-battles. None the less, his good nature will always apparently get the best of him. As a student George has main- tained diversified interests, so that while primarily he is occupying himself with the sciences, he also keeps in touch with other subjects. He hopes some day to be asso- ciated with his father in dentistry. Cammel CAMILLE R. WEIDNER B. S. Science Club (1, 2, 3). Can any good thing come out of Bethle- hem Oh, yes! Here is the living example. Camille is another one of Muhlenberg’s faithful and ardent commuters, and so he is not often to be seen on the campus after class hours. He is greatly interested in science and it is largely due to his efforts that the Science Club of Muhlenberg Col- lege made such rapid strides in its infancy. With all of his many outside diversions, “Cammel” is, nevertheless, a good and conscientious student. His professional air and his pleasing manner are bound to bring him great success in life. After graduation it is his aim to put out his shingle — “Painless Dentist.” We wish you the very best of luck, Camille. ARMOND HARRY WESTLEY Manatawny, Pa. 5. Weekly Staff. M. C. A. Cabinet (2, 3) German Club (3). Science Club (2, 3). Appearances are deceitful and so are nicknames. Why, when our friend Westley is dressed up, one would think that he were an advertisement for Society Brand clothes or Arrow collars. But still they call him “Tarzan.” He is a typical (?) college man: doesn’t dance, doesn’t drink, seldom smokes, is very quiet, bashful and eccentric. He certainly will make a model husband some day. One peculiar practice of this colleague of ours is to sleep during the day and study late at night and late into the morning. “Tarzan” is going to try his skill along pedagogical lines in a few years. Tarzan WALTER L. WILLIAMS St. Johns, Pa. AH A. B. Freshman Baseball. Weekly Staff (1,2, 3). Ciarla Staff. St. John’s sole claim to prominence is this erudite product. So often is “Bill” found lending his genial company and diamond-like intellect to the group dis- cussion, that his future as an after-dinner speaker par excellence is assured. His religious inclinations, however, do not deter his twanging of the bow sacred to Venus’ dimpled offspring. In the quaint village of his origin there waits a demure miss who will assist “Rev.” Williams in one of his first celebrations of the church’s most pairing sacrament. As a bachelor still, “Bill” does his humble best to ease things for his brothers. His help, advice or co-operation is assured in any under- taking sponsored by Delta Theta. WS£i, WALTER JOHN WOLFE Jersey Shore, Pa. Ph. B. German Club (3). Science Club (2, 3). Business Association (3). Band (1,2, 3). Weekly Staff (2, 3). Here we have one of the most sedate looking men in the class. However, don’t be deceived by appearances, for under- neath his sober exterior he hides a very wide-awake and lively personality. One of the most industrious students of the class, he still finds time to take part in many campus activities. Judging by the amount of work he does, we might think that he never sleeps, yet we are sure that his nights are not all spent burning the mid- night oil. He expects to enter business after graduation, and his friends feel sure that he will be heard of some time as the head of some great business house. ‘Dick’ RICHARD WAYNE WOOD Allentown, Pa. AW Ph. B. Romance Language Club (3). Pan-Hellenic Council (3). “Dick” claims his chief source of envy comes when he walks to school for an eight o’clock class and the Prof fails to show up. We wonder whether the anxiety originates from fear for the welfare of the Prof, for loss of knowledge, or loss of sleep. Blessed with a congenial personality, this exponent of Darwin s theory feels that he is doing Muhlenberg an injustice by going to school only ten months, so he is testing the Gary method of year-round instruction. Having partaken especially of Prof. Fasig s courses, we believe ‘Dick aspires to a geological career, although he claims other reasons for his choice. Our best wishes go to “Dick. John Walter Mattes September 6, I908-July 24, 1927 The death of “Johnny,” in the summer of 1927, was the greatest misfortune and loss that has ever befallen our class. One of the most active members of the class, he was a true brother to those whom he called friend, and a friend to all. His passing has left a gap in our ranks, which Time may hide, but can never fill, for he was so closely connected with campus life and activities, that college can never seem quite the same to those who knew him well. Therefore, the class of 1929, in true love and friendship, dedicates this page to his memory. opfjomore Class ( fitters FIRST SEMESTER Treasurer Stanley V. Printz Levan P.

Jacob Alexy g opt)omore Class Jlistorp FRESHMAN YEAR W HEN the members of the class of 1930 arrived at Muhlenberg it was immediately called to our attention that we were the largest class ever to enter the college. Having much able and active material, the class at once began its history by organizing so as to be able to com- bat our predestined sophomore foes. Indeed, such a powerful organiza- tion was developed that we easily annexed the first interclass scrap. True to custom, none the less, the sophs by a strategem were able to win the banner fight, and so a tie developed which remained unbroken until late in the fall. The tying-up contest and the football game were both run off, but both ended in ties themselves. Finally came the deciding scrap, the tug-of-war over Cedar Creek. With grim determination on both sides, a hard fight resulted, but the frosh finally took their enemies for a ducking. So then we at last won the series and secured the privilege of using the back steps to the Ad Building. Came stunt day? The less said about that the better. In this affair the chagrined sophomores were able to get revenge for the unpardonable sins committed by us on various occasions, especially on those of the inter- class scraps. We were extremely successful in our social functions. Our banquet was held at the Elks Club and we were highly honored by the presence of the sophomore class president and several of his aides. A dance held later in the year proved an equal success. Our freshman foot- ball and basketball squads both had good seasons. The former lost but one game and that to Lafayette. We made good in track, too, in spite of the change in coaches. SOPHOMORE YEAR Returning to college this past fall we were surprised to find a freshman class even larger than ours had been. They were, however, soon taught to obey the restrictions imposed upon them. We continued our success in winning interclass events. After losing the pole fight we came right back to win the banner scrap in record time and the traditional football game added to our glories with “Paddock” Schneck making the lone touch- down for us. The remaining contest we also took over in short order. When stunt day arrived we put the humiliated freshmen still more securely in their place, with a great variety of antics and threats. Many a man nursed splinters for the next few days. Practically all of last year’s fresh- man teams are now on the varsities and give promise of giving Muhlenberg’s opponents something to think about for the next two years. Our class has now fully entered into the spirit of the institution and we hope that our remaining years will give us an even deeper appreciation of the value of our sojourn at Muhlenberg and the meaning of the words “Alma Mater.” William D.

Ezekiel Monitors Class Colors Class Flower Orange and Black Marigold Jfresifjman Class J|tstorp T HE class of ’3 1 was not immediately terrorized by commands of “button” and “paddle” upon its official arrival at Muhlenberg. This, however, was not the fault of the sophomores. It was rather because the authori- ties had again decreed that there should by a Freshman Week, during which time we enjoyed our last days of freedom from regulations. During this week we were told of the work and life at Muhlenberg so that we might the better adjust ourselves to the affairs of the campus. We had been first shown into Muhlenberg through the front door. With the opening of the real school term on September 16th, however, we were shown into it through the back basement door. On the whole, in fact, our introduction to Muhlenberg on the part of the sophs was made in very thorough fashion, in keeping with the tradition of the ages. Undoubtedly all the trials through which we went were meant in a kindly spirit by the sophomores, being solicitous of our welfare, and so we tolerated our training philosophically. We had been taught to regard Muhlenberg as a Christian institution, and so when we were drafted to pray for rain we concluded that that was indeed upholding the traditions of the college. In the interclass scraps we did not fare so well. We were much encour- aged by victory in the pole fight, but later events proved too difficult for us and the season ended in the triumph of the sophs. We continued to use rear basement entrances throughout the year. Stunt day arrived, that climax of all the indignities imposed upon frosh. Our men showed surprising theatrical ability in performing numerous antics under great handicaps. In athletics we proved our worth, for the freshman teams turned out this year in all sports were a distinct credit to Muhlenberg. The football team tied for the Conference championship, and the basketball five made an enviable record, the high spot in its season being the defeat of the Lehigh frosh. The Glee Club has also benefited from our men since both of its soloists are of our class. Several other men made the club also. We have the distinction, too, of re-establishing the custom of printing and selling Muhlenberg calendars. Under the leadership of a very active committee an attractive souvenir calendar was put out with satisfactory financial returns as the result. Thus are enumerated the outstanding events of our first year at college. We are looking forward to the time when we will be upperclassmen, and it is our sincere desire to contribute all we can to the realization of a greater Muhlenberg. Howard R.

Today this depart- ment offers to teachers of the vicinity an opportunity to secure partial, stand- ard or college certificates, to progress and specialize in their particular fields, or merely to acquire that broader general information, which is more and more demanded of the teacher especially. At present there exist not only Saturday classes, but also evening courses, centered at the Central Junior High School in Allentown, at Hazleton, and elsewhere in the vicinity. The extension courses continue throughout the year. The six-week summer school affords teachers special opportunities, in that there are added to the regular college faculty specialists in the various more technical fields of public school teaching. The enrollment of the entire department has far outstripped that of the college proper. This year fifteen are expected to be graduated with the present class of Dr. Wright 1928 . Last college day, in October, the third annual commencement of the school was held. This arrangement of possible graduation, either in June or in October, has been found to be a great convenience and advantage to the teacher. Under the businesslike and able direction of Dr. Wright, the depart- ment has been characterized by a spirit of co-operation. Serious-minded and interested students have their particular needs met in a personal manner. The school of education is well fulfilling its purpose, to promote the interests and welfare of the college and to serve, in an unselfish manner, those instructors, who wish to improve their teaching capabilities, while they, of necessity, themselves continue to teach. i 122 SI BIift Bachelor of Arts Viola M.

J 128 J r 3Tfje College gear D URING the 1927-1928 college term life at Muhlenberg has kept its wonted pace. Traditions have been for the most part observed and of course the ordinary routine has been closely followed. Yet in surveying the events of the past year we cannot but notice many changes that have taken place gradually in keeping with the expansion of the college. New courses have been added to the curriculum and new men added to the faculty. The building operations on the campus have continued slowly but surely and are beginning to give us a big-college look. And last, but not least, extra-curricular life has taken on a different aspect because of the great growth of clubs of all kinds during the year. So another chapter has been added to the history of Muhlenberg, much like the others and yet very different in many respects. The following pages attempt in a small way to recall some of the more important events of that chapter. § § § REGIONAL CONSTITUTIONAL CONTEST The regional semi-final contest of the national oratorical contest on the “Constitution of the United States” was held at Muhlenberg, April 29, 1927. Dean George T. Ettinger presided. Miss Virginia Hearne, a student at Temple University, was given first place, and Mr. Clyde D. Billig, of Pennsylvania State College, received second place. The other schools competing were Maywood College, Bucknell University, St. Thomas College, Juniata College, University of Pennsylvania, and Muhlenberg College. Russel Gaenzle represented Muhlenberg. TAU KAPPA ALPHA Muhlenberg’s chapter of Tau Kappa Alpha, a national forensic frater- nity, has grown steadily since its organization in 1926. It is the first and largest honorary fraternity to be established on the Muhlenberg campus and marks a great step in Berg’s activities. The fraternity roll lists over seventy colleges, among which are sixteen state universities. Among the members are Dr. Brown, head of the department of oratory of the college, and Arthur T. Gillespie, coach of the debating team. The president and secretary of the local chapter are John S. Rhoda and Russell Gaenzle, respectively. § § § ALLENTOWN CONCERT OF GLEE CLUB The final concert of the college Glee Club for the 1927 season was held in Allentown, May 3, 1927. The attendance rivalled that of any other concert. It was a fitting close to a highly successful season ably directed by Professor Marks. The singing of “Fair Muhlenberg” opened the concert. Barndt and Herring with their solos were as usual well received and encored. The violin solo by Bachman scored a big hit. The skit seemed better than ever and was a credit to the program, especially since it was written in its entirety by an Allentown member of the club. The rounds of applause gave testimony of the audience’s appreciation. DINK BURNING On Wednesday, May 1 I, 1927, the hopes of the entire Freshman Class were realized when they cast their dinks and green ties upon the bonfire, which signified their complete release from the first-year men’s bonds. As the flames were rolling the dense clouds of black smoke to the sky, the freshmen sang the Alma Mater. The snake dance next gave expression to their feelings, now that they were sophomores. Many of the upper- classmen immediately took advantage of their respective privileges as soon as the moving-up exercises were over. § § § I. 0. U. CONTEST The Intercollegiate Oratorical Contest for 1927 was held at Gettysburg, May 13th. Since the president, John S. Rhoda, was the Muhlenberg representative, L. Francis Leyberger presided. The contest was marked by keen competition. J. S. Williams, of Bucknell, who gave an admirable presentation of an old subject, namely, “John Marshall and the Constitu- tion,” won first place. The Gettysburg man, W. C. Richter, spoke on “Unknown But Not Unknown,” and placed second; while the Albright representative, speaking on the subject, “Across the Alps Lies Italy,” placed third. The other colleges represented were Ursinus, Juniata, Frank- lin and Marshall, and Muhlenberg. § § § INTRAMURAL TRACK MEET The Delta Theta Fraternity captured the second annual intramural field meet, which was held on May 13, 1927. Alpha Tau Omega finished second with thirty-two points to her credit. She was in the lead until the last event— the pole vault. At the beginning of the meet it looked as though Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Kappa Tau would run away with the points, but the later events cut down their leads. Phi Epsilon placed third with twenty-three and a half points. Phi Kappa Tau followed with nineteen points, the non-fraternity men with eleven, Philos with seven, Sigma Lambda Pi with three and a half, and the Druids with one point, which was accounted for by Schmehl. § § S GERMAN DRAMATICS Over six hundred persons attended the two presentations of the annual German Club plays, which were presented May 18 and 19, 1927. The audience on both occasions gave their hearty approval by their bursts of applause and laughter. The following plays were given: “Versalzen,” “Nur Nicht Fluchen” and “Kleptomanie.” “Versalzen” is a story of a young bride who wants to prove to her husband that she is a good cook. In her endeavor she adds too much salt to all the food. In “Nur Nicht Fluchen” there is a retired sea-captain who cannot speak a half-dozen words without cursing. A baroness consents to marry him if he can prove that he can talk for one hour without using vile language. He proves to her he can. The third play, “Kleptomanie,” presents the well- known situation of the absent-minded professor, who in this case, has the habit of putting important documents in secret places and then forgets all about them. Under the skillful coaching of Dr. Barba and Dr. Reichard, the performers reached a high degree of perfection. GERMAN AUSFLUG Despite the rain in the afternoon of May 23, 1927, the German Club held its annual ausflug at Sand Spring Park. About fifty members were present. The members enjoyed card games and hand ball. The singing of the old German songs was an interesting part of the day’s program. The refreshment committee prepared a very fine lunch, consisting of Ger- man sandwiches and cakes, frankfurters which were roasted in the open fire, and coffee. A short business meeting was held. § § § GERMAN CONTEST FOR BOSCHEN PRIZE The annual contest for the Boschen prize of $25 was held Friday, May 27, 1927. The contest consisted of translation of passages from German into English and English into German; also some dictation and reading for pronunciation. The judges of the contest were Prof. J. Warren Fritsch of the Allentown High School and Prof. Harry Reichard of the German Department of the college. Those competing were William Berkemeyer, Albert Buhl, Norman Dinger, John Mattes, Donald Englert, Ralph Kieffer, Edward Gross and Carlton Heckman. This prize is awarded each year by Charles D. Boschen, who established it for the purpose of creating interest in the German language. The winner of the contest was announced at the commencement exercises to be John Mattes. § § STUDENT BODY DANCE ' ' ' The annual student body dance was held at the Al-Dorn Ball Room on Friday evening, May 27, 1927. The event was a colorful one and about one hundred and fifty couples attended. The committee in charge of the dance had the ball room decorated beautifully for the occasion and much credit must be given them for their work. Dancing commenced at nine o’clock and the London Criterions continued their music until one o’clock. The chaperones for the evening were Dr. and Mrs. I. M. Wright and Prof, and Mrs. A. C. H. Fasig. § § § JUNIOR AUSFLUG The Junior Class held its annual picnic with much pomp and ceremony at Summit Lawn on June I, 1927. The picnickers busied themselves by playing playground ball, volley ball and many other games of interest. Outside the range of athletics for the muscles, and cards for the mind, the refreshment committee served the members with an enormous supply of refreshments and since most of the men hadn’t eaten much at the noon meal they were able to " dig in.” The members of the class returned to the campus declaring that they had a good time and that the affair was a success. § § § JUNIOR ORATORICAL CONTEST Amidst a setting of palms and with the participants wearing caps and gowns, the annual Junior Oratorical Contest was held in the main audi- torium of the Science Building on Friday morning, June 3, 1927, at 10 o’clock. The audience consisted of practically the whole student body and the faculty, many alumni and parents and friends of the members of the graduating class. Dean George T. Ettinger officiated as chairman. The orchestra rendered a few selections, after which the men delivered their orations. Robert L. Urffer spoke on “The Constitution’’; Edgar Mood on “Progress Russell Gaenzle on “The Constitution,’’ and John Rhoda on “The New Science.’’ The men well demonstrated that their presentations were the results of much toil and practice. At the com- mencement exercises Dr. Haas announced that John S. Rhoda had been adjudged the winner. § § § CLASS DAY EXERCISES The annual Class Day exercises, conducted by the departing members of the class of ’27, were held on Friday, June 3, 1927, at 2.30 P. M. in the campus grove. The program opened with the singing of a song by the quartette under the direction of J. Kenneth Christman. William Harned then delivered the ad- dress of welcome, which here- tofore was usually done by the president. Howard Schlums read the class history and Paul Clymer the class poem, both written by Edward Althof. There was a presentation of a few gifts, after which fol- lowed the mantle ceremony. Edward Althof then read the humorous last will and testa- ment of the class. The program closed with the sin ing of the Alma Mater. § § § CUE AND QUILL CLUB The sentiment prevalent around this institution, namely, that Muh- lenberg should become active in the dramatic field, became a reality when a group of students reorganized the old Cue and Quill Club, which was inactive for nine years. It was immediately decided to produce a com- mencement play and “The Bonds of Interest” was chosen. Prof. Eugene Stevenson and Prof. Joseph Jackson, both of the Muhlenberg Faculty, coached the players. The club gave the presentation of the old Spanish comedy, “The Bonds of Interest,” in the High School Auditorium on Friday evening, June 3, 1927 . The play, written by Jacinto Benavente, one of the outstanding Spanish playwrights, is a comedy deserving much praise, although it has only been presented one time before this in America, by the Theatre Guild in 1909. The play was well received by the large audience and the humor and clever performance by the actors helped to make it more than a success. Herring and Stout took the leading roles. § § § COMMENCEMENT DAY On the sixth of June, 1927, eighty-nine members of the class of 21 received their sheepskins and were declared college graduates. Eleven members of the Extension Department also became the proud possessors of a college diploma. The graduating class was the largest in the history of the institution. ALPHA SIGMA RHO During the past year another campus of Muhlenberg College, fraternities, four having national fraternity has been organized on the We are now the possessors of seven affiliation, while Alpha Sigma Rho is the third in the local group. Agitation in favor of this fraternity began quite some time ago. Through the persistent and earnest efforts of some of the men, the organization was built up until it was possible to petition the Faculty. After investigation, the Faculty decided favorably and gave their sanction to the organization. The group of men began imme- diately to increase and to improve their newly formed organization. One of their outstanding achievements was the acquiring of the beautiful house, which they now occupy, located near the campus on Chew Street. § § § POLE FIGHT The annual pole fight, one of Muhlenberg s traditional Soph-Frosh contests, was an experience quite new to the freshmen. Despite this handicap, they were victorious. Although the scrap did not last long, there was much enthusiasm. In the first rush the experience of the sopho- mores aided them in gaining advantage over the new men and after only a i 35 THE DOCTORS COME THE SENIORS PARADE After the singing of the old hymn, “Now Thank We All Our God,” and the offering of the prayer, the salutatory address was given in Latin by Edward Althof, Jr. Russell Gilbert next delivered the valedictory. The College Orchestra then favored the many parents and friends together with the student body, with a selection, after which Dr. Haas introduced the speaker, Dr. H. H. Horne, of New York University. He spoke on the subject, “Are We Educated?” and declared that “education is becoming ever better adjusted, within and without.” His address will be remem- bered by all who were present. After the conferring of the degrees by Dr. Haas and after the laurels of prize competition were bestowed upon the winners, the Alma Mater was sung. The pronouncing of the benediction brought to a close the fifty-ninth commencement exercises of Muhlenberg College. few minutes’ struggle the sophs pulled the pole to their goal. After a short intermission, during which the yearlings rested and were encouraged by the upperclassmen, the freshmen came back on the second rush with determination, renewed strength and energy and carried the pole down the field to their goal line. In the third rush the frosh again rushed the pole to their goal and were judged victorious by Haldeman Stout, president of Student Body, who conducted the scrap. TOUGH GOING THE DEFENDED BANNER GETTING INSTRUCTIONS BANNER SCRAP On the afternoon of September 28th, the sophomores evened the score of class fights by defeating their traditional foes in the second of the Soph- Frosh contests — the banner scrap. The contest took place as usual in the campus grove. It was a brief victory for the sophs. After nailing their pennant on the oak tree the first-year men concentrated around the tree. The sophs lined up about thirty feet away and at a given signal they charged upon the frosh in an attempt to tear down the banner. For a brief instant the yearlings resisted, but the attacking sophs soon over- powered them and G. E. Keck, of the class of ’30, ripped down the banner, gaining the victory for his class, after fighting only thirty-seven seconds. The vanquished new men were then made to “swim on the campus” and play leap frog by the victorious sophomores. IN THE AUDITORIUM SOPH-FROSH FOOTBALL GAME crowd in attendance and hearty cheers went up from the bleach- ers as the Soph and Frosh Classes yelled for their mates on the field. The game offered some very exciting plays. The most spectular occurrence of the afternoon was the forty- yard run made by “Paddock” Schneck, which won the game for the sophs. The frosh resorted frequently to the forward pass to make their gains, but the superior line of the sophs began to break through and to stop the THE FROSH !,• » K • ti Y man-throwing passes. As soon as the whistle blew the teams walked off the field, the sophs feeling just a little bit better than their opponents. SCRIMMAGE THE SOPHS The bag race, which proved to be the last of the Soph-Frosh contests, was held Wednesday afternoon, October 12, 1927. The sophomores being victorious in this scrap were allowed to use the wooden stairs. The five bags were lined at intervals in the middle of a space set off on the back campus. At the drop of a handkerchief the two lines of twenty men raced toward the bags. The sophs were the first to carry a bag over the line by means of a perfected system of passing. However, the frosh got one to their goal by similar means. Three more bags were still any- body’s and now the real fighting commenced. Finally the sophomores took two more to their goal, which gave them the victory. The fighting on the part of the yearlings was to no avail, for the superiority of the sophs in every possible way proved to be more than the class of ’31 could stand. ROMANCE CLUB As a revival of the old Le Cerle Francais and at the same time to enlarge the scope of as ociation there was organized on the campus a Romance Language Club. Admittance to the club is on merit of schola ship alone. An average of “B” or above is required for membership, and students of French, Spanish and Italian are eligible. The old French Club has been out of existence for the past two years. It went to ruin when Dr. Corbiere was on his leave of absence. It is the interest of Dr. Corbiere together with that of the students of the Romance languages, which has prompted this new activity and which has made the club one of the outstanding clubs of the campus. § § § BAG RACE LEHIGH VICTORY BONFIRE Monday, October 31, 1927, was a day of tremendous labors of the Muhlenberg students in anticipations of one of the greatest celebrations of a Muhlenberg football victory over Lehigh University. With everything in readiness the band and the entire student body assembled in the Arcade at 6.30 for the march downtown. The parade proceeded down Ham- ift PAGAN-MINISTER GAME The cohorts of righteousness in all their glory rose up and triumphed over the ambitious pagans in the annual Pagan-Minister game by a score of 6-0. Such a motley crew of gridiron warriors was never seen in all the history of the Pagan-Minister games. Gym suits, bathing suits, THE BIG BLAZE ilton Street to Twelfth, where it was given a place in the Hallowe’en parade which was sponsored by the city. The parade marched to Fifth Street, then made a counter march to the Square, where a pep meeting was held. While at the Square numerous snappy college songs were played, cheers were given and speeches delivered. The pep meeting so aroused the townspeople that hundreds followed the parade, either on foot or auto, back to the campus, where in a few minutes the final climax was to be reached in the celebration. After the band played, the torch was applied to the great mass of oil soaked wood and in a few minutes its radiance was seen for miles. The beauty of this affair was this year augmented by the use of sky rockets. Several hours later the wood lay in ashes and the celebration of the third suc- cessive victory of the Cardinal and Gray over the Brown and White was at an end. BRITISH DEBATE Not satisfied with the honors already gained on the forensic platform the Muhlenberg Debating Team clashed and subdued a p eked team from the British Isles on November 9, 1927. The debate was held in the Allentown High School Auditorium and the attendance showed that it was an exceptional occasion. Dr. George T. Ettinger, dean of the college, presided. The question under discussion was, “Resolved, that the only effective attitude toward war is uncompromising pacificism.” Louis Stover, Harold Speidel and John Rhoda were the speakers for Muhlenberg and very ably upheld the affirmative side of the question. Those on the negative side were Frank Ongley Darvall, of the University of Reading; John Ramage, of the London School of Economics and Political Science, and Andrew Haddon, of the University of Edinburgh. These men are of the best of the debating unions in their respective schools which they represent. Each member of the audience was allowed one vote to decide which side did the most effective debating. The vote was 235 to 102 in favor of the local orators. Dr. Heath, of the Moravian College for Women, acted as chief teller. It is interesting to note that practically all of the members of Parliament have been members of the debating unions while attending college, and that undoubtedly a number of those in the unions at present will at some time be representing their districts in that law- making body. It, therefore, has been an honor to Muhlenberg to have had the privilege of debating with them. knickers, old trousers and sweat shirts seemed to be the popular garments of the day. With a vim and dash against which the pagans were helpless, the ragged minister team outplayed their opponents throughout the game. In the first half there was much energy wasted by both teams. Neither side was able to make much headway until the minis- ters had a little meeting in which “Dutch” Loy was the inspiring leader. After this Ruglio and “Al” Billy were inspired and a touchdown for the ministers broke the tie and proved to be the only score of the game. The second half was filled with excitement. Twice the Pagans paraded down the field and threatened to score but were driven back each time by their determined opponents. Finally “Doc” Wright blew the whistle, leaving the subdued pagans to gnash their teeth in vain, while the ministers walked off the field as proud victors. THE MINISTERS MUHLENBERG CALENDAR The revival of the school calendar was another tribute to the Freshman Class. This was the first calendar since 1925. The Sophomore Class previously managed it, but this year the Freshman Class took the responsi- bility of the work. D. B. Williams, president of the Freshman Class, was in charge of the publication. The calendar is arranged very beautifully and contains splendid views of the campus, pictures of athletic teams and of the athletes and selections from Spencer’s “Fairie Queen,” appropriate to the months of the year. m t£ STUNT DAY November 17, 1927, witnessed another stunt day pass into oblivion. After this flogging occasion many freshmen could breathe easier and many sophomores considered themselves avenged. Both parties therefore con- sidered its passing a howling success. The freshmen assembled themselves in the chapel at 3.15 P. M. and nervously awaited the pronouncement of their judgment by their superiors. No less than fifteen different events were enacted in which approximately thirty frosh made themselves conspicuous. But the yearlings were doomed to a more severe punishment. It is the famous gauntlet which leaves the greatest impression on the students. Each freshman was compelled to grasp his ankles and walk slowly through two rows of the avenging sopho- mores, who used paddles of all descriptions. After this the frosh were made to thrust their right hand into a can of green paint, which event terminated a successful stunt day. The class of ’31 proved to the sopho- mores and to the upperclassmen that they were good sports. SIABIxft MINISTERIAL BANQUET The annual dinner for the ministerial students of the college was given in the Hotel Allen, due to the increasing number of ministerial students. Previously the banquet was held in St. John’s Parish building. Dr. William C. Schaeffer was the host to seventy-six of Muhlenberg’s future “spreaders of the Gospel.’’ After the dinner, Dr. Schaeffer spoke not only on the work and methods of the church, but also the possibilities of the minister. Rev. Harry Cress- man spoke briefly on the challenge of the ministry. Dr. J. A. W. Haas, president of the college, gave a few enlightening and practical remarks on the obligation of the students to society. This was followed by a general discussion, in which not a few of the students took part. After a word of prayer every one returned home with the confidence that they had been benefited physically, mentally and morally. RECREATION HALL A new rendezvous was made for the Muhlenberg students ETHl by the conversion of the old HgU chemistry laboratory into a rec- reation hall. Under the com- bined jurisdiction of the Varsity “M” Club and the Muhlenberg Christian Association, it has become a fine meeting place for those who have a few spare moments of leisure to spend. It has been beautifully decorated ares. Two pool tables, a victrola, a iced in the hall. Various games, books, as to give the students access to them, few hundred dollars in order to make It is a splendid addition and satisfies GAMES POOL CLASSICAL CLUB A group of about twenty students taking the classical course met on Monday, December 15, 1927, at the suggestion of Dr. Horn to consider the reorganization of the Classical Club of the college. An organization was effected in a short time. The purpose of the club is to create interest in the study of Latin and Greek and to foster a fraternal spirit among students of the ancient civilization. Drs. Ettinger, Horn, Reichard and Prof. Fritsch were given honorary membership by the club. There are possibilities that the club will become affiliated with a national fraternity of classical organization known as Eta Sigma Pi.

During this time he has continued his great efforts to build men not only athletes, and it has been the good fortune of the class of 1929 to have known him as coach for its entire life. As tutor in all major sports, “Haps” had all in all a successful year in 1927-1928. True, football had its usual reverses, but it at the same time had its bright spots, bright spots that will never be forgotten. True, also, basketball gave us heart-failure at the beginning of the season, but the boys got together and rounded out the schedule in a blaze of glory. Baseball was thoroughly successful throughout, and a good season it was if taken even only in point of wins. We feel, therefore, that we’ve been on the upper side continually. A hard worker in everything he under- takes, “Haps” has certainly thrown himself right into Muhlenberg athletics and given them all he has in effort. No more can be done by any man in any line of work. We look forward with a great deal of interest to developments next year, for then he will be dealing only with men of his own tutelage. Outside of athletics, “Haps” has interested himself in many phases of college work. Especially as a member of the M. C. A. Cabinet has he done much to improve student life generally. Through him was that body joined to the Varsity “M” Club in creating the new recreation hall, and to him personally is due much of the credit for furnishing and popularizing that student center. To the “M” Club itself he has been a guide in whom has been placed much confidence, and the activity of that organization can in great measure be traced to his enthusiasm and effort. As a man “Haps” has always been personally interested in the boys with whom he comes in contact on the field or in the cage. He wants to be a friend to every one and he is willing to go more than halfway. With such an attitude it is no wonder that he must succeed. He is furthermore an idealist. He would rather lose a game than do the little or mean to win it in any guise, and such a spirit he seeks to instill in his men. Yet he is a fighter — a fighter for the good, and he expects his men to be fighters, too, as long as they are striving for real things. Such a man is “Haps.” The best of luck attend him always. GEORGE R. HOLSTROM Freshman Coach HALDEMAN C. STOUT, Jr Assistant Football Coach Prevented by injuries from entering athletic competi- tion in this his last year in college, “Hunks” has none the less continued to do his bit in sports. Recognizing his abilities, the authorities placed him in the position of assisting “Haps” especially in coaching the line, on which as tackle and later end he had served three years regularly. Having always been identified with many campus activities and organizations, “Hunks” had developed a manner and a personality which stood him in good stead. It was thus that he was able to handle a job always difficult for a man who is himself an undergraduate. It is unfortunate that such ability will be lost to the athletic coaches’ world, but “Hunks” is set on entering the legal profession. TW] Bremiller, Mgr. Dickert N. Burrell 1927 Jfootball Reason T HE 1927 football season of the Cardinal and Gray opened and closed with a tremendous bang. Although marked with several defeats, it can justly be considered successful by virtue of a record of five victories and four defeats. Notwithstanding the fact that the season was dotted with a disastrously defeat here and there, victories over such teams as Franklin and Marshall, Lehigh and Western Maryland, especially, soon made every one forget the reverses. With a smashing offensive Muhlenberg’s veteran gridiron machine ran through the red hordes of Albright by a score of 33-7 in the first game of the season. The Cardinal and Gray got away to a bad start when they fumbled the first four times they had the ball. But it was soon evident that Muhlenberg was out to avenge the defeat handed to them by the Myerstown crew last year. After the first few minutes, the whole back- m mm Weber I HOMPSON Mesics field played as a unit which could not be stopped until the final whistle blew. It was in these opening minutes of play that Albright was literally handed her only score of the game. But that score only spurred Muhlen- berg’s team on to greater efforts. The Cardinal and Gray scored in every period and seemed to be able to do so almost at will. The terrific line plunging of “Beanie Borrell accounted for many gains. Not only was the backfield thirsty for scoring, but also the line. “Les” Gordon ran forty yards for a score after intercepting a forward pass and Minka, who blocked a punt, fell on it behind the goal and accounted for another score. There were few outstanding stars, as the whole team was in every play fighting every minute to obtain this overwhelming victory. Muhlenberg dropped the first game to the Lafayette Leopards by a score of 38-7 in a suffocating, sweltering sun. Although at the end of thirty minutes of play, when the score stood 1 2 to 7 for Lafayette, there were hopes that Muhlenberg could and would emerge victorious. However, is «• Seltzer Hopkins Horner these hopes were soon shattered, for, when the second half had only pro- gressed a few minutes, “Nick’’ Borrell was out with an injured ankle. During the third and fourth quarters the Benferites could not stem the tide of touchdowns that the Maroon passers were putting across. The heat was terrible. It bothered the players. It played on some of them more than the game did. Lafayette had the advantage by sending in a constant stream of reserve material, while Muhlenberg was more or less handicapped by this predicament. “Nick” Borrell played a great game. He was continually stopping Lafayette backs when they broke through the line. Young “Beanie” plunged the line in perfect style and in the line Gordon and Spotts played a wonderful game. Muhlenberg’s lone score was the result of a successful forward from “Nick” to Brother “Beanie.” During the last quarter Weber tore loose with some fancy plays and gained a lot of ground, but nothing could be converted into a touchdown. Journeying to the historical battlefield to engage the “Bullets,” Muh- Snoich Gordon lenberg was handed an unexpected setback. It was the eleventh time the two teams met on the gridiron, during which the honor has swayed almost each year from the Mules to the Bullets. Muhlenberg won the edge on Gettysburg early in the first period by scoring the first touchdown. It was the result of a forward to “Beanie” Borrell, who ran 25 yards for the touchdown. During the beginning of the game Muhlenberg’s line held firmly and Gettysburg had to resort to the aerial attack to gain any ground. But soon the “Bullets” found a hole in the Cardinal line and Stumpf continually penetrated it for substantial gains. “Nick” Borrell gave the fans the thrill of the day by pulling one of his old-time end runs. He got away in fine shape and clipped off 60 yards before the opponents brought him to terra firma. Several fumbles featured the playing and intercepted passes counted a lot toward the final score. Most of Gettys- burg’s points were garnered in this way and Muhlenberg suffered con- siderably from the same method. Chapman Jacobs Crippled to a great extent, Muhlenberg’s aggregation met and fought a hotly contested battle with Lebanon Valley, but finally succumbed to a 19-0 defeat. The Annville representatives opened up with an aerial attack that the Cardinals found quite baffling and extremely difficult to break up. “Nick” Borrell proved himself a shining light in the early part of the first quarter, giving several exhibitions of long end runs. It looked as if Muhlenberg had a lot of pep, but on the third play of the game he was injured, and although his leg was pretty well crippled, he stuck to his post throughout most of the game. Neither “Eddie” Dickert nor “Tony” Pascal were able to participate in the game because of injuries. This was a serious setback for the Cardinals. The game was featured by a fine assort- ment of plays which kept the spectators spellbound on many occasions. Gilbert, the Lebanon captain, was the flash that outplayed Muhlenberg. He made long end runs and darted through the Cardinal line. That he could play football was the opinion of every one who saw him in action. Evans Pascal F. Borrell Muhlenberg’s hero of the day was “Les” Gordon. His work at center was unmatchable. He was through the Lebanon Valley line and after the ball before it started on its trip through the line, throwing many opposing runners for losses. “Al” Minka and “Fat” Smith, ends, were always on the alert and quickly checked several rallies. In one of the best exhibitions of football ever witnessed on Muhlenberg field, the Cardinal and Gray defeated Franklin and Marshall to the tune of 12-0. It was a different team, an entirely different aggregation that defeated the F. and M. cohorts. In the few previous games two or three linemen outshone the rest of the line, but in this contest it would have been hard to pick an outstanding player, as each gridman outshone himself. And the backfield played a superior brand of football, proving to the fans that it knew how to play the game and play it correctly. The scrapping Muhlenberg team opened up a ferocious attack the first minute of play and did not weaken or falter during the whole fray. Although Berg completely outplayed F. and M., they were not able to score until the Smith Renwick, Trainer final quarter. “Nick’’ Borrell pointed the way to this victory by his beautiful open-field running, clever dodging and accurate passing. In the finest play seen on our grid in years, “Nick,” instead of punting, as was his intention, fooled every one by running back and forth across the field as the F. and M. men came through the line. “Nick” shook off one, dodged the second, slipped under the third, wheeled around the fourth and finally shot an accurate forward to “Al” Minka, a lone comrade, standing on the goal line. This gave Muhlenberg the first score and an impetus which soon resulted in a second touchdown. It was a fighting F. and M. crew which opposed the Cardinal and Gray, and although they were outclassed from the start, they bitterly contested every inch of ground that they were forced to yield. That is the way the Lancaster team went down to defeat at the hands of a new spirited team from Muhlenberg. But was this not a minor conflict compared to the titanic struggle at Bethlehem, when Muhlenberg completely subdued the Lehigh representa- tives in the mire of Taylor Stadium? Right from the start Coach Benfer’s SSf g! n « sa !W i K v warriors outplayed, outwitted and outran the Brown and White gridmen. Lehigh had courage, but they were completely smothered by the lateral and triple attack that the Allentown collegians put forth. In spite of the fact that the Lehigh players had been watching Borrell, or rather because of it, his work stood out above that of any one else on the field. “Nick” scored every point, intercepting a pass on the thirty-yard line to run for a touchdown in the third quarter, then zigzagging and twisting fifteen yards through the entire Lehigh line in the fourth quarter for the second. After Davidowitz tried for the second field goal in the third period, which was blocked by Thompson, “Nick” ran fifty-five yards and recovered the ball. The work of “Nick” and his comrades in the back- field must be highly commended. Never did a Brown and White player elude them when he had snaked through the Cardinal linemen. Although the backfield gave a wonderful exhibition of how things should be done, the rest of the team fought gallantly and played a great game. Chapman, the Cardinal left guard, played his greatest game of the year. He broke through the Lehigh line repeatedly and threw them for losses. The work of Thompson, Evans and Smith also featured and placed Muhlenberg in good scoring positions. As in the previous year, punting featured. Twenty- six were made during the game, through which Muhlenberg gained a lot of ground. Raleigh did the kicking for Lehigh, but the yardage did not compare with that of Borrell. And so with these many features the Car- dinal and Gray gained a 13-3 victory, the third consecutive win on South Mountain. Following this brilliant victory, Muhlenberg was sent down to defeat by Ursinus College. It was a better game, however, than the 13-0 score indicates. Her poor showing was in direct contrast with the merited game she put up against the Brown and White. During the first half Muhlenberg’s warriors held the Red and Black scoreless, but during that dragging second half with the Borrell brothers and Dickert missing she broke and allowed Ursinus 1 5 points. The Cardinals were tremendously handicapped by the inability of the line to keep out the charging Ursinus tackles and “Nick” Borrell was constantly thrown for big losses. Before he had a chance to propel the oval he was attacked by several Ursinus men and downed. “Beanie” Borrell was the consistent ground gainer, clipping off five or six yards every time he rushed the pigskin. Pascal A »Sr- ®0s§SliS also accounted for long, consistent gains. Jacobs and Spotts, the flying tackles, broke through the Red and Black many times and stopped the backs in their tracks. Ursinus did most of her gaining on a beautiful end play which Muhlenberg was slow in breaking up. The offensive and defensive playing of the Cardinal and Gray was decidedly weak and ineffec- tive, which accounted for the defeat. Dickinson became the next victim of Muhlenberg’s quest after victories and were forced to submit, 9-6, in a bitterly contested struggle. Coach Benfer’s backs worked behind perfect interference which swept the lawyer defenders off their feet. Dickinson had a great line, which played very low. It was almost impossible for Muhlenberg to penetrate it. The slashing offense of each team was almost equally effective with the Car- dinal and Gray earning twelve first downs to Dickinson’s fifteen. The only touchdown of the Allentown warriors was the result of a fifteen yard run around right end by “Nick’’ Borrell. A few minutes before this “Nick” also thrilled the fans by a beautiful twenty-yard drop-kick. Our goal was crossed once and seriously threatened on several other occasions during the hectic battle, but the Cardinal line stiffened and held like a stone wall. Dickinson resorted to the forward pass attack and this worried the Benfer machine a great deal. Pass after pass was completed for first downs. But along came Thompson, Dickert, Borrell and Evans to the rescue and stopped many scoring possibilities at the critical moment. Thompson played an especially brilliant game, placing his team in scoring positions on two different occasions. Pascal also covered himself with glory in the backfield. The outcome of the game was in doubt until the final whistle blew, but Muhlenberg was evidently predestined to return the victor. That which begins well, ends well. Such can be said of the Muhlen- berg football season after finishing her schedule by beating Western Mary- land, one of her strongest opponents during the year by a score of 6-2. Western Maryland came to Allentown with a great season’s record. Beaten only by W. and J. she was supposed to be the doer in a one-sided act. But Muhlenberg’s warriors, eight of whom played their last game for their Alma Mater, fought furiously and by merit of their brand of game deserved to be on the long end of the score. It was one of the most spectacular and thrilling games one might imagine and the final outcome was in doubt lisrai eiftRiiii until the end of the contest. The manner in which the pigskin seesawed backward and forward to within striking distance of the goals gave the fans plenty of thrills. ‘‘Nick’’ Borrell, making his final appearance in college football, was the leading man of the day, scoring the only touch- down when he scooped up a fumble and ran 25 yards for the much prized six points. That Western Maryland had a good team could not be ques- tioned. Some of the trickiest plays pulled on Muhlenberg field in many years were tried. A clever line shifting play and the forward passing out- lay were hard to solve, but those Muhlenberg men did it and deserve a great deal of credit. Muhlenberg’s line played exceptionally well. Western Maryland could not gain enough ground through it to brag. Spotts played a wonderful brand of football. Gordon, one of the best centers Muhlenberg has ever had, played his usual style of game. Tired and bruised, but filled with insurmountable joy, this titanic struggle came to a close. Eight warriors had played their last game for Muhlenberg, and these eight warriors never played a better game. Thus closed the season. Five victories and four defeats marked our efforts, but the victories far outshone the defeats. With few exceptions we consistently outplayed and outscored our opponents. For this credible showing one must mention such outstanding players as “Nick’’ Borrell, brother “Beanie, Dickert, Gordon and Thompson. Truly it was a most successful season from all aspects and one of Muhlenberg’s most glorious. 1927 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE September 24 Muhlenberg, 33; October I Muhlenberg, 7; 8 Muhlenberg. 7; 15 Muhlenberg, 0; 22 Muhlenberg, 12; 29 Muhlenberg, 13; November 5 Muhlenberg, 0; 12 Muhlenberg, 9; 24 Muhlenberg, 6; Albright, Lafayette, Gettysburg, Lebanon Valley, Franklin and Marshall, Lehigh, Ursinus, Dickinson, Western Maryland, { 160 } GENERAL STATISTICS m ' MMa Kickoff — Number Total yards Average Punts — Number Average yards Forward Passes — Attempted Completed Intercepted Yards Fumbles Penalties First Downs Yards gained in scrimmage Total points Muhlenberg Opponents 23 26 923 1141 40 40 71 64 43 43 83 70 42 34 12 13 386 494 14 17 33 39 89 103 2004 2226 87 1 10 B.

In spite of numerous injuries, they soon overcame all these difficulties and displayed a fine type of defensive and offensive football. The number of games won and lost was two, respectively, while the one with Dickinson ended in a scoreless tie. It was a fight for the con- ference championship among the first-year ranks. As a result of the score, the laurels were divided between Muhlenberg and Dickinson. Displaying flashy plays at unexpected moments, the Cardinals out- played and won the first game against the Battlefield men. Holstrom’s men had everything from end runs to forward passes. Gettysburg man- aged to get the first touchdown, which aroused the ire of our yearlings, after which they tore loose and had everything their own way. When the final whistle blew, the Cardinals were congratulating themselves with a 13-7 victory. The first loss of the season was the game against the Lehigh Freshmen. It was a bitterly fought contest in which fumbles on the part of Muhlen- berg helped the Brown and White representatives to win the struggle. The rivals were about evenly matched. Time and again the Frosh advanced to within striking distance of the goal and each time victory evaded their tenacious hold. They finally succumbed to a 19-13 defeat. Undaunted in spirit, however, the Frosh got going again and sent the F. M. representatives down to a 6-0 defeat. Showing a group of high- { 162 GliUBlift class football plays, Holstrom’s warriors earned a much deserved and decisive victory. A series of line attacks and aerial passes featured the affair and directly resulted in the lone touchdown of the day. Wittwer and Erdman were the stars of the game. Next the Muhlenberg Frosh honorably went down to defeat at the hands of the strong Lafayette aggregation. The young Cardinals, although outweighed by the Maroon line, led in the score until the fourth quarter, 12-0. When the final whistle blew Lafayette was ahead, 14-12, winning the two extra points by a safety after pushing over two touchdowns. It was a hard-fought struggle in which injuries handicapped our team considerably. Last, but not least, was the scoreless tie played with the Dickinson lawyers. Both teams were about evenly matched. The pigskin was carried alternately up and down the gridiron during the entire game. No team seemed to have the decisive punch necessary to put across a touchdown. Nevertheless, the game was filled with thrills galore and the players were satisfied to divide the conference honors between themselves. Albert Wittwer was the high scorer and bright spot of the year. His vicious line drives and end runs earned him a position of prominence on the eleven. “Johnnie’’ Erd- man also featured with his clever dodging and open-field running. The work of Burnett, Ulrich and Gernerd stood out on the line. Caputi at center was decidedly unmatchable — a clever passer, always on the alert and aggressive enough for a fellow three times his size. MacWilliam, Mgr.

Though there was a time when it looked as though there would be reverses for the entire season, the team rallied so that the season was closed with four con- secutive victories. Lawson, playing his last year of col- ■ legiate basketball, led the tea m in scoring. His brilliant floor work and accuracy in shooting went a long way ■ toward victory. ■ Van Nortwick, with his careful dribbling and flashy ■ playing, follows Lawson for scoring honors. Borrell and Dickert, of course, must be mentioned not only for their scoring, but for their steady, consistent and brilliant services to the team, while Smith deserves much credit for his excellent defensive ability and accuracy, which in not a few cases carried Muhlenberg from apparently a loser to a winner in the last few minutes of play. The prospects for next year are bright. Though Borrell and Dickert are lost to the team, a wealth of material present freshman team promises a bright season for Muhlenberg. § § § MUHLENBERG-MT. AIRY The Muhlenberg cagemen opened the Cardinal and Gray basketball season by defeating the Mt. Airy quintet on the local Y. M. C. A. floor, 40-27. The game was irregular in speed, though neither side showed much spirit. At times, however, Lawson and Coldren put on such a fast attack that the visitors were dazzled. It was during these flashy periods that Muhlenberg scored most of its points. This game gave Benfer a chance to line up his men for the Princeton game, which was the next game to be played. § § § MUHLENBERG-PRINCETON The second game for the season proved to be the first of the three successive defeats, which the Cardinal and — , Gray basketeers experienced. The game was played in J Princeton, N. J. The Cardinal and Gray tossers man- aged to add twenty-five points to their credit, while the Princeton passers added thirty-five points to their credit. Lawson was the star for Muhlenberg in the game. § § § MUHLENBERG-FORDHAM The day following the Princeton game the Berg passers journeyed from Princeton to New York, where they were met and conquered by the strong Pordham basketeers by a 49-27. Lawson’s brilliant floor work and shooting, together with Coldren’s good form, went a long way to help Berg gather its points. 41 SI Blift successive games, faced the Ursinus cagemen with a deter- mination to win, but were defeated only by a very close margin, the score being 28-26. It was played on the local Y. M. C. A. floor on January 7th. It was a game of thrills from the very start and at no time did one team lead very far ahead of the other. At the end of the first half Ursinus was leading, 16-13. In the second half Muhlenberg opened fire and jumped into a 26-21 lead. Soon Ursinus evened the score. Long shots were now tried, but neither side was able to find the basket. There were thirty-seven seconds to go. Lawson tried a long shot from the middle of the floor and missed; Hoagly got the ball, but he also missed a long shot. Muh- lenberg got the ball again, but again missed a long shot. Ursinus recovered and dropped the ball through the basket just three seconds before the gun cracked, which gave them the victory. There was no substitution on either side during the Borrell game. Lawson was the hero for Muhlenberg, getting five field goals. Coldren and Borrell came next in line for scoring honors. Young and Hoagly were the leaders for Ursinus. § § § was ANNUAL EASTERN TRIP The annual eastern trip turned out rather unsuccessfully for Muhlenberg. The Cardinal and Gray tossers faced during this trip three consecutive reverses, though it was no dishonor to be defeated by the teams which they faced. On January 12th the Manhattan quintet in New York won over the Berg quintet by a margin of only two points, 32-30. On the following day Crescent A. C. brought down upon the Benferites the second defeat with a count, 47-27. The Cardinals journeyed the following day to the fair city of Hoboken, N. J., where Stevens Technology gave the Berg cagemen their third defeat on the trip. The final score was 31-20. Lawson led in the scoring for the Benfer men, while Van Nortwick and Smith closely followed him during the three games. MUHLENBERG-LAFAYETTE SERIES In the first game of the Lafayette series the Muhlenberg Dickert MUHLENBERG-ALBRIGHT With a speedy pace that was not to be surpassed by its rivals the Muh- lenberg cagemen defeated the Albright tossers, 42-18, on the local Y. M. C. A. floor, January 11th. Benfer’s cage team held the lead throughout the game. Muhlenberg showed a much faster speed than she did against Ursinus in the previous game. Borrell was at his best. Of the shots he tried, only one was missed. He shared honors with Lawson by getting five field goals. A few minutes before the game ended Benfer sent in the second team and thus every man on the squad got into the swing of the game. § § § s 0IiVRIii£ 1 g UI lils i i ail a U ( ' [S lil§ M II twWJ { jg i S[IE| I ■ iImsS l! t LvwJBa J ii 1 1 t ' jL Hk. Smith basketball team was defeated, 12-24. This rough contest was played in Easton, Pa., January 18th. Lawson and , V- Smith were the high scorers for the Cardinals. As in the previous season, the Maroons succeeded in winning the first game, but were less fortunate in the return game. So, in this season’s return game which was played at Allentown, the Cardinal and Gray tossers trounced Lafayette and thus avenged their former reverse. All who witnessed the game, must admit that it was one of the fastest and most exciting games played during the season. Not a minute was lax. The game was a close one from the very beginning and at the half the Benferites were leading by one point, 1 1-10. The fans were fearful of this small margin as they had seen Muhlenberg bow down many times before in the season by a one or two point disadvantage. The half started and every one was on his toes and intensely inter- ested. The lead was held by one side and then by the other. Finally amid all the tumult Dickert dropped the ball in the basket which gave Muhlenberg the lead again. From then on the contest was anything but basketball. Finally the gun cracked and the last and the most exciting game of the 1927-1928 season was finished with a score 23-22. Lawson, Smith and Borrell were high scorers, while credit must be given to Dickert for his field goal at the opportune time. Thus Muhlen- berg closed a rather poor season in a blaze of glory. § § § MUHLENBERG-FRANKLIN MARSHALL SERIES In the midst of a slump in the season Muhlenberg fell victim to the Franklin and Marshall quintet in Lancaster by the score of 23-27. The game was a close one throughout. Lawson and Coldren were the high point scorers for Muhlenberg. The return game was played on the Y. M. C. A. floor in Allentown, but resulted in the same disaster. Muhlenberg collected the same number of points as they had in the first contest with Franklin and Marshall, but the Blue and White added still three more to their winning points, making the score 23-30. It seemed as though luck was against the Berg cagemen, yet the morale of the team was not shattered. Lawson and Van Nortwick were high point scorers. § § § M UHLENBERG-B UCKNELL After battling through one of the hardest fought games of the season, Muhlenberg, due to a break in the game, lost to the far-famed Bison of Buckneli on the floor of the Raub Building in Allentown by the heart-breaking score, 41-40. In this game Muhlenberg showed a far superior brand of basketball than she had heretofore shown this season. At half time the score stood 19-18 for Muhlen- berg. Repeatedly Buckneli would pass the ball right into Muhlenberg’s hands and by flashy plays the Cardinals would pass it right down the floor. In the last few minutes of play there was an error in the score board which showed 41-40 against Muhlenberg van Nortwick m Sjii K I ' Jy Morgan, Asst. Mgr. and she was trying everything to get another basket, while the true score was 40-39 in her favor. Had the players realized the true score they would have played more cautiously the last minute. However, just twenty seconds before the final gun cracked a Bucknell player shot the deciding basket and won the game. The accurate shooting of the Cardinal and Gray players was far superior to that of the Bisons. Lawson was excep- tional, and Kieffer a new man in the line-up showed up very well. His accuracy in shooting deserves much credit. § § § MUHLENBERG-LEHIGH Muhlenberg dropped a poorly played game to Lehigh on the floor of the Raub Building by a score of 43-18. Coach Geary’s men seemed to be too fast and too accurate for “Haps” Benfer’s Cardinal and Gray men. At half time the score was standing 22-8 in favor of the Brown and White. Victory was pretty well sealed, as the second half clearly showed. Lawson was the star of the Muhlenberg team, but the opposition was so fast that getting near the basket was next to impossible. The Muhlenberg tossers guarded well and kept Lehigh away from the basket to a large extent, but getting near the basket was needless, for “Bob” Many, Lehigh’s star guard, would shoot at will from most any point on the floor. He made twelve field goals during forty-five minutes of play. The game was unusually fast and the Brown and White passe s were at their best form. § § § MUHLENBERG-SWARTHMORE Now came the really glorious part of the season. Four consecutive victories rested with the Cardinal and Gray. The Cardinal and Gray tossers defeated Swarthmore’s fast quintet on the local Y. M. C. A. floor, February 4th, by the score 29-27. The game proved very slow at first, but during the second half, when things tightened up a bit and when the scoring became close, the game proved to be one of thrills and tense feeling. At half time the score was tie, 11-11. Each side was alternately making good shots. Smith, who was playing his best form, dropped in the last two shots of the contest just a few seconds before the game ended. These two shots put Muhlenberg from a two-point disadvanatge to a two point advantage. Lawson and Borrell, also made a wonderful showing by their excellent dribbling and very difficult shots. § § MUHLENBERG-LEBANON VALLEY The Cardinals followed up their victory over Swarth- more with another decisive victory over Lebanon Valley’s quintet on the floor of the Raub Building, 39-30. It was the first basketball victory Muhlenberg had won over the Annville Collegians in six years. The game was filled with thrills and spills. Muhlenberg assumed an early lead, but was never far ahead of the opposition during the first half, Bernd, Asst. Mgr. M n saesfct. At half time the score stood 19-16 for the Cardinals. But the Benferites came back in the second half determined to get a bigger margin of points and at the end of the game Lebanon Valley trailed by nine points. The Annville Collegians put on a good defense, which kept the Cardinal and Gray passers from running up a larger score. Lawson, Smith and Van Nortwick were the stars of the game, playing great basketball from whistle to whistle. § § § MUHLENBERG-GETTYSBURG Although Gettysburg’s Bullets were very fast, they were not quite fast enough nor accurate enough to overtake Muhlenberg’s cagemen, when the Cardinals won a marked victory over the visitors on the local Y. M. C. A. floor by the decisive score of 30-32. Benfer’s men assumed an early lead and at the end of the first half, victory for the Cardinal and Gray was almost self-evident. Muhlenberg outplayed Gettysburg, though both teams made great defenses. The lead which Berg had was never overcome by Gettysburg. Accuracy and speed were outstanding. They were combined to prove that Gettysburg had to bow to Muhlenberg. McMillan proved to be the visitor’s star, while Lawson led Muhlenberg’s scoring. He was followed closely by Van Nortwick and Smith.

Six games were won, while four were lost to their opponents. The two outstanding features during the season were the double victory over the Moravian Reserves and the victory over the Lafayette Freshmen in the return contest. Wackernagle led the scorers and was one of the outstanding players of the year. He had 125 points to his credit. Lauck, the wiry center, played wonderful form and follows Wackernagle for scoring honors. Ulrich and Kratzer, as well as Shankweiler, contributed much for Muhlenberg. They played sensational basketball and had it not been for their brilliant defensive work, the winning margin in many of the games would not have been nearly as large. Coach Holstrom has been living up to his usual record by continuing to build up winning teams and thus furnishing to the varsity an excellent wealth of new material, well trained in Muhlenberg’s style of playing. The Freshmen opened their season with an easy victory over the Mora- vian Reserves, but they experienced in their second game a reverse at the hands of the Lafayette Freshmen. The Berg passers showed up fairly well, but their opponents seemed to play better. The third game proved to be another reverse for the yearling team. Perkiomen won their victory over the Cardinal and Gray this season, as they had done the season pre- vious. The Berg tossers kept up their hard fighting throughout the game, but Perkiomen was steadily gaining until the game ended with the score in their favor, 56-23. This defeat, together with the loss to Lafayette, 29 put determination in them and Coach Holstrom succeeded in developing a winning team. Now followed the glorious part of the season with five consecutive victories. The Lehigh Freshmen went down beneath the hands of the Cardinal tossers by a score of 24-27. This triumph evened the defeat which the Berg Freshmen of the last season experienced at the hands of Lehigh. There were real playing and the Cardinals deserved to win for their brilliant floor work and flashy passing. The Ursinus quintet tossers next felt the strong Berg passers push them into a defeat, which was another close and exciting game. There was excellent playing exhibited by both sides, but the superior work of the Cardinals gave them the victory. The return contest with the Moravian Reserves was another glorious triumph for the Cardinal crew. The playing, as the score 5FI0 shows, was all one-sided and was done by the Berg cagemen. Schuylkill was next to fall under the feet of the winning Berg men. This was the fifth consecutive victory and the second last game of the season. The Cardinal Frosh had things their own way. Lauck and Ulrich played sensational basketball as usual. The Frosh of Muhlenberg, determined to eradicate their previous defeat, met and delivered an unmerciful defeat upon the first-year men of Lafayette. The Maroon quintet used many desperate tactics, but by the time the game was over Muhlenberg had sent the ball through the cords so many times that there was no doubt that they had proved their superior- ity over their opponents. Wackernagle was the scoring ace of the game with 20 points to his credit. The fact that the season was ended rather early, it was decided to play one or two post-season games. These two games proved however to be disastrous, for both the Freeland M. M. team and the Lansford High School team defeated Holstrom’s men. Though they were defeated, they kept up their record and played excellent basket- ball.

With seven victories in ten games, the club felt that they had done all of their share in placing Muhlenberg ahead in sports. The advent of Kimble and Spotts in the pitcher s box made many a game certain for the Bergmen. The work of Coach “Haps” Benfer in training the men is surely no small part in their success. The captaincy of Clymer and real teamwork all resulted in successful work. It was one of the heaviest batting years on record. Borrell was consistent with his slugging and Kimble a close follower for high percentage. MUHLENBERG-LEHIGH Muhlenberg’s diamond season opened by sinking the Lehigh boys, 15-5. The game was played on Taylor Field. The Cardinal and Grays sealed the doom of Lehigh in the opening chapter and then made it tighter in the following innings. Three Brown and White hurlers were well slammed and Johnson had practically two teams on the diamond as he tried to stem the tide of Muhlenberg’s hits and runs. Muhlenberg scored twelve good hits, including a home run by Borrell. The Bethlehemites were weak in the fielding and their errors many. Weber held the opponents down until the seventh, when a series of errors gave Lehigh three runs. In the ninth inning with two down, Hayes and Nevin, batting desperately, walloped two home runs. Weber, however, retired the next man and ended the fracas. Score by innings: Muhlenberg 5 4 0 2 3 I Lehigh 0 0 0 0 0 I Batteries - -Weber and Evans.

He allowed only six hits and struck out eight men. The Quakers did not come up to expec- tations and were much poorer than the team which defeated the Bergmen last year. On the other hand, the Muhlenberg men were hitting on all six and slammed the ball to all corners of the lot. Kimble, Borrell and Evans led in the hitting for the Benferites. Evans, who was behind the bat for Slemmer, caughter a nice game and was a good backstop for Kimble, who never got himself in a hole. Score by innings: owarthmore UU I Ul) Batteries Kimble and Evans. McFreeley, Gillette and Redman M UHLENBER G-S USQ UEHA NN A The game with Susquehanna was the first athletic relation between the two schools for several years and the Selinsgrove team was given a rough reception by the Cardinal and Gray. One base hit after another finally sent Susquehanna home on the short end of a 22-5 score. Because of the large score and one-sideness of the game, the only things that attracted interest were the terrific slugging of Muhlenberg and the brilliant brand of pitching exhibited by “Jack’’ Kimble. Slemmer, Lawson and Kimble had home runs and there were also many other extra base hits. Kimble’s throwing struck nine men out. Score by innings: W EIDEMOYER Borrell Muhlenberg Susquehanna Batteries Kimble and Slem Lyons, Gustie an MUHLENBERG-URSINUS At this time the Muhlenberg team was the hardest hitting baseball team in the East and as usual Ursinus was smothered under a barrage of base hits that shot from the bats of the Cardinal and Gray sluggers. The very beginning of the game showed a decided hitting mood and the Berg- men’s disposition did not change. They garnered five runs in the first inning and had no mercy on the two opposing hurlers who tried in vain to stop the slaughter. There were many brilliant plays in the game, but all seemed to be on the Berg’s side. Captain Clymer’s brilliant throws from deep left field to catch runners on two occasions was as pretty base- ball as could be seen in any big league. Weidemoyer also made a brilliant stop in the eighth which cut off several runs. Score by innings: Muhlenberg Ursinus Batteries Weber and Slemmer Mink, Erb and Carl. MUHLENBERG- TEMPLE The game with the Cherry and White team was played away from home at Philadelphia and resulted in another victory for Benfer’s proteges. It was, however, the closest game the Cardinal and Gray has played this Dickert C RESSMAN year, the final score being 5-3. The game was hotly contested and was finally settled by “Nick ” Borrell, who hit a home run with two men on base. Another feature of the game was the fine pitching by Spotts. This was his first opportunity to perform on the mound. His pitching was evidence that he will hereafter take his regular turn and be depended upon to bring the team through in good shape. Borrell sank a homer and Cress- man knocked a good three-base hit. Score by innings: R H E Muhlenberg 0 14000000 5 72 Temple 000300000 3 70 Batteries — Spotts and Slemmer.

During the game a shower came up that threatened to call the battle off, but even old Jupe Pluvius could not silence the bludgeons of the Cardinal and Gray hitters. The final result of the game was 13-0. “Nick” Borrell got his usual home run, this time with the bases fully populated. “Jack” Kimble turned in his third victory of the season and also registered the only white- wash to be handed out by a Muhlenberg hurler this year.

The game was slow and listless, both teams erring frequently. Weber started on the mound, but after the first five men who faced him hit safely and tallied four runs, Kimble was sent out to replace him. But it seemed that the opposition had no regard for him either and they slugged his offerings to all corners of the lot. Berg finally caught up in the third inning, but could not maintain her lead. The infield play of Muhlenberg was far from the brilliant brand of ball which had been exhibited in previous games. Score by innings: Muhlenberg 0 0 3 Lebanon Valley 4 00 Batteries — Weber, Kimble and Slemmer. Zappia and Bendigo. MUHLENBERG-DICKINSON Getting their stride once again the Bergmen held the visitors from Carlisle down to a 9-3 tally. The lawyers came here with a brilliant record, but before the game had progressed far Berg displayed a marked superiority, both in hitting and in fielding. All the trouble was in the first inning. Borrell’s errors allowed three men to score, but Spotts soon had the visitors eating out of his hand. “Nick” more than atoned for his misplays by clouting a terrific home run in the seventh with Dickert on base. Greenberg’s shoestring catch in the seventh was the fielding feature of the game. Captain Clymer displayed some big league base SI BIift Kimble Greenberg running also in the lucky seventh that unnerved Dickinson’s whole club and was responsible for a run. Score by innings: Muhlenberg 2 Dickinson 3 Batteries — Spotts and Slemmer. Mentzer and Middleton MUHLENBERG-LAFAYETTE SERIES Muhlenberg batmen lost to Lafayette both games in a manner that was heart-rending. The scores were extremely close and in most cases it was only the last inning or so that decided definitely that the opponents were to be the victors. In the first game at Allentown Spotts’ excellent work held the Eastonians down to nine hits and three double plays by Muhlenberg made the battle quite dramatic. However, the hitting streak of the season seemed to desert the Bergmen when they needed it most. The final score was 4-1. In the second game at Easton the score was tie until in the seventh inning a two-base hit by Grube brought two men in and settled the points for the day. A last attempt to make a few more tallies in the last inning with heavy sluggers failed and the game ended with Berg having played one of the swiftest and closest games of the year.

Freitag, ’21 m ft lift Slater, Coach ' V h 1927 ftracfe Reason T HE 1927 track season at Muhlenberg proved that that division of sports is constantly improving. The team won the two dual meets in their class, namely, that with F. M. and with Drexel. The showing at Lafayette was good, too, even though that school is in a much larger class. The difficulty is in getting meets with schools in Class B. Under the coaching and training of Mr. Slater, new material was developed and the older men arose to new heights. Two college records were broken and two were tied. Ulrich in the F. M. meet brought the time of the 100-yard dash down to 9.9 seconds. Spotts threw the discus 117 feet, 4 inches, bettering the previous record by six inches, but as he did not win the event it was not allowed to stand. In the Drexel meet Ulrich tied the records for the 220 dash and the high hurdles. The team was a bit handi- capped, in that freshmen were barred according to the Conference ruling. The men that had graduated the year before left in some places gaps that were not so easily filled. The work was opened with a handicap track meet held in the fall. The object was to give all the students an opportunity and to select from those who might be developed into good material. Gold and silver medals were awarded for the first two places. Schneck despite his handicaps won five first places. During the winter months the team worked out on the Y. M. C. A. indoor floor, but they did not compete in any indoor meets. This work was found necessary to stop, as the peculiar layout of the floor was harming the legs and feet of the boys. The placing of a freshman team on the field was an innovation that proved its worth. Although there were only two meets, and these both { 187 } 1 fc A II Miller Wilkinson MUHLENBERG , 66; FRANKLIN AND MARSHALL , 60 The real ability of some of Muhlenberg’s track stars was shown in the F. M. meet. Ulrich was the hero of the day, as he lowered the college record for the 100-yard dash, ticking it off in 9:9. He was also high scorer for the meet, taking first in the 100 and high hurdles and tieing { 1 88 IS t9 w m ay. SAW? unfavorable in scoring, they brought to light many possibilities in that class. A cross-country team was also trained that showed considerable promise. It consisted of Huegel, Deily, Butz and Williams. While the season was not all to be desired in meets won, yet the competition given by the Cardinal and Gray cinder men always made them interesting. § § § PENN RELAYS The Muhlenberg cinder men made one of the best showings in years at the Penn Relays. The four men that traveled to Philadelphia for this annual event competed in Class B of the Middle Atlantic States Collegiate Athletic Association, One Mile Relay Championship Race. Muhlenberg finished third with the time 3:37 2-5. Dickinson won first place and Manhattan took second honors. The winning time was 3:36 3-5. It was an extremely close race until the very finish. Muhlenberg was four yards behind the leaders and only one foot behind the second place team. The team was composed of the following men: Diamanti, Pascal, Drewes and Ulrich, and they ran in the order named. Huegel Anderson for first in the low hurdles. The performance of Diamanti was dramatic as well as spectacular. After having just finished first in the 440 in good time, he entered for the half-mile and won second place. This was the last event and won the day for Muhlenberg. Montgomery was the out- standing star for the Lancaster boys, taking two first places in the distance races, the one-mile and the two-mile run. Muhlenberg took four first places in the field events and three second places. Chapman led in the shot-put, “Sam” Miller took the pole vault, Anderson the high jump and Tony Pascal tied for the broad jump. Schaertel took second in the discus and Wilkinson in the javelin. The field events won the day for Muhlenberg despite the brilliant showing of Ulrich and Diamanti. § § § C. P. C. T. C. MEET The Central Pennsylvania Collegiate Track Conference meet was held this year at Muhlenberg’s field. It rained heavily throughout the day and after the opening events the only spectators left were those who had to be, the officials and the newspapermen, and they were thoroughly drenched. The meet was divided into two classes. In the Class A division Gettysburg carried off high honors with a point score of 53. Bucknell, Dickinson and Muhlenberg were also in this class and finished in the order named. Juniata College ran away with the honors in Class B, piling up a score of 67 to 33 for Schuylkill, which finished second. Drexel, Susquehanna and Ursinus finished third, fourth and fifth in this class. Two new conference records were established in the Class B competi- tion. Pentz, of Juniata, in going over the bar at 5 feet 8 3-8 inches, bettered { 189 Diamanti the previous record by an inch. Bowers, of Juniata, leaped 20 feet, 3 3-8 inches in the broad jump. The competition was keen throughout, espe- cially fast time being made in the track events despite the nasty day. In the field events the turf was soft and soggy and made it difficult for the athletes to gain a solid landing. “Si” Jones, of Gettysburg, was the outstanding star of the meet, placing first in the 100, 220 and the broad jump. Ulrich was high scorer for Muhlenberg, but the team was out- classed in nearly every event. § § § m MIDDLE ATLANTICS The Middle Atlantics were held this year at Union College, Schenectady. Muhlenberg sent up a team consisting of Pascal, Ulrich, Huegel and “Sam” Miller, and although they qualified for the final events, they were unable to place in any of them. This is not due to any lack of ability of the Muh- lenberg team, but rather that our team was outclassed by those larger colleges and universities that sent entries. § § § 1 Ih LAFAYETTE. 79; MUHLENBERG. 47 The meet with Lafayette was held at March Field, Easton. Although Muhlenberg was able to excel in all the field events, the loss of the scores in the running events piled up the points for Lafayette. Spotts showed excellent form in the discus. He broke the college record, making I 1 7 feet 4 inches, but as he did not win the event it did not count. Ulrich, Pascal and Dickert tied for high score with nine points apiece. Pascal Chapman the shot-put, Pascal in the javelin throw and p. Muhlenberg also took second and third in dies, pole vault and broad jump, MUHLENBERG , 66; DREXEL , 60 The defeat of Drexel completed the varsity track season for Muhlenberg with a feeling that there had been a definite success in the season’s work and the efforts of the men. The meet was close in scoring throughout and certain victory came only with the taking of the pole vault by Empie. This brought a dramatic conclusion to the day, as Empie only at the last minute entered for the event and, as they do in the movies, finished first. The outstanding star was Ulrich. He took first in the 100, 220 and both the high and low hurdles, piling up a total of twenty points. Drexel took all three places in the quarter mile run and in the high jump. The college record in the 220 and high hurdles was tied by Ulrich. Huegel did excellent work in the distance runs, placing first in the two-mile event and second in the mile. Dickert and Chapman took first and second in the shot-put.

There were only two meets scheduled. The first was the Eastern Pennsyl- vania Collegiate Conference Freshman meet held at Lancaster. This Gettysburg took easily with a total of seventy-four points and F. M. placed second with thirty-four. Muhlenberg placed fifth with twelve points. A meet was held at Easton with Lafayette, in which the Maroon Frosh won, 76-32. They presented a well-balanced team, winning eight of the twelve first places. The feature race of the meet was the 100-yard run which “Tony” Lanza, of Lafayette, won in 10 1-5 seconds. The low hurdles were won by Schneck, who also took the 220-yard dash. i|ik’5n Ipj Jfielb JXecorbs Jflublenberg QTracb ant Record Date F. M.

Many take an interest in the game, but because of the unfavorable facilities, a championship team has never been developed. There are only a few courts and they somehow are never in the good condition that they should be. Nevertheless, Manager Brubaker with little sign of hope ahead gathered together a team that at least did the best they could under the circumstances. Only three men from the team of the previous year were available as a nucleus. They were Schartel and Lowy, champion and runner-up in the tennis tournaments for two successive years, and Charles Helwig. The other men who were carried along as their teammates were Paul M. White, Paul Empie and Isadore Green. Six games were arranged for the season. The first was with Rider College, of Tren- ton, N. J., which was lost by the score of 5-1 . Lowy made the single point for Muhlenberg. Peculiarly all the scores of the other games were 4-2 in each case in favor of the opponents, excepting the home game with Ursinus, which was called off because of rain. The other games were with Moravian, at home and away, Ursinus and Pennsylvania Military Acad- emy, both away. Although the team was unable to win any of the matches, they gave their opponents plenty of opposition and the games were always interesting from the viewpoint of the spectator. MANAGER Richard A.

The teams which participate in these events are no longer “pick-ups,” but are composed of men chosen for their special ability and well trained for the contests. The Easter vacation provided a breathing space after these hard-fought games, but no sooner had the contestants returned than hostilities broke out anew — this time as to who should carry off the honors in playground ball. The inclement weather necessitated the postponement of many of the games scheduled, but all of them were finally played off. The teams, picked from large groups, almost every member of which was well acquainted with the game, were in general so well matched that high scores were the exception. In this sport, as in basketball, Phi Epsilon came out on top with a good margin over its nearest opponent. While the championship in playground ball was still being decided, volley ball games and tennis matches were being played. Because of the shortness of a volley ball game, a “win” was given to the team which won two out of three contests. Toward the close of the season these games became endurance contests in which each point was twice as hard to get as the preceding one. In this league Delta Theta came out in the lead five points ahead of the rest. The tennis matches for some reason were not representative. The friendly antagonism which, in other sports, compelled the teams to highest efforts seemed to be lacking. No less credit is due to the victors in this { 198 i mm m Each meet was a fight from start to finish and the victors in each case were surely worthy of the laurels. When all was over and the lists were closed for another year Delta Theta stood champion of the campus, and Phi Epsilon, the champion of the year before, had to be content with second place. The cage games which opened the annual classics substantiated the frequently stated opinion that all the good basketball players in the school were not on the varsity team. The games were spread over a period of four weeks to permit ample time for each quintet to prepare for its next rival. Fulfilling the expectations prompted by its records of previous years, Phi Epsilon won the basketball title for the third consecutive year. Running neck to neck with Delta Theta, each with a clean slate, the Phi Epsilon aggregation clinched the honors on the last day of the race by defeating the rivals who, until then, had held equal honors with them. Alpha Tau Omega slipped into third place with one more win than Phi Kappa Tau. According to agreement Phi Epsilon was awarded 70 points; Delta Theta, 65; Alpha Tau Omega, 60; Phi Kappa Tau, 55, and the Non- Fraternity team. Sigma Lambda Pi, Druids and Philos each five points less than the group ahead of them in the list. Snoich with 67 points and Stark with 66, both Phi Epsilon cagers, headed the list of individual scorers with Seiple, A. T. O., in third place with a total of 52 points to his credit. field, however, for they, Sigma Lambda Pi, were consistent in their winnings and unbeaten save for one defeat. The track meet, a single afternoon’s work, was the deciding factor of the intramural season. Its combination of so many different types of athletics in which skill and practice are the primal needs of success permits of the most surprising and unexpected results. At the beginning of the meet it seemed as though Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Kappa Tau would have to split high honors, but as the afternoon passed on the lead they had established was slowly undermined and, in the last event, Delta Theta came up from behind and won the field meet with a lead of three points and a total of 35. A. T. 0. came in for second place with a total of 32 counters and up to the last minutes of the meet these had been con- sidered sufficient to permit her to carry off the laurels. Third place was awarded to Phi Epsilon with 23.5 points. Logan, of Delta Theta, was high scorer for the day. Second place was claimed by Hopkins and Ritter, of Delta Theta; Schneck, Phi Epsilon, and Hendricks, A. T. 0., each with ten points. The season considered from every angle was an unqualified success. It brought out talent from unexpected sources; it increased interest in athletics and helped cement the friendship between the various groups. There can be little doubt that in the future it will never be excelled for the enthusiasm, fight and skill that was put into it. When all the results were pooled and the final reckonings made the groups stood as follows; 1. Delta Theta 246 points 2. Phi Epsilon 215. 5 “ 3. Phi Kappa Tau 192 ‘ 4. Alpha Tau Omega 175 ‘ ‘ 5.

The Student Council consists of fifteen men elected from the different fraternal organizations and from the non-fraternal group. It is perhaps needless to say here that this group of men is one of the most popular on the campus, especially among the wearers of the green. But when you consider that the Council is very largely responsible for the proper training of the freshmen, you can easily realize their position. The Council co-operates most wonderfully with the college and saves the authorities a goodly sum of money each year by directing the freshmen in various campus duty which serves the double purpose of getting the work done and training the yearlings. The members of Student Council can very easily be distinguished from the other stu- dents, for they usually wear a small white cap with the letters “S. C.” on the front. tubent JBobp ( rgatiBatton T HE student government on the campus is one which is very democratic in form, and in which all students are entitled to voice their opinions. This organization is the center of all the student activities, and while it meets at irregular intervals, all other student organizations are subject to its constitution and by-laws. The organization, during the past year, has taken a very active interest in all the various college affairs. It has made possible the continuation of the college band and contributed largely to the formation of the new recreation hall. In addition to these things, the Stu- dent Body organization sponsors all football smokers and such special features as the annual Lehigh victory bonfire; and gives the athletic awards to the managers of the major sports and to senior members of the track squad, not to mention a host of minor activities which it sponsors. The officers of the Student Body organization are elected annually from the members of the whole student body, by the members of the body, and in addition to the officers there are elected four members of the athletic board who represent the body in the athletic management; and two representatives in the intercollegiate oratorical interests of the President -President Secretary Treasurer Haldeman Stout Harold Deisher C.

Jack Morgan OHN RhODA jHublenberg Christian glssoriation T HE Muhlenberg Christian Association has always been one of the most active groups in college and this year has certainly been no excep- tion to the rule. In addition to the regular work of the association, which it accomplished, there were many new and outstanding features that placed the group on the map. The purpose of the M. C. A. is threefold: first, to promote a growth in Christian character among the students; secondly, to enlist all who are willing to render service both in the college and in various activities downtown; and, lastly, to act as an employment agency to obtain positions for students whereby they receive financial remuneration. The activities of the Christian Association are spread out over a wide field of usefulness. Chapel services for the freshmen are conducted by its members, the freshman handbook is published under its direction, and with its aid and through the co-operation of the local Y. M. C. A., students are given the privileges of the organization downtown for a very reasonable price. Another line of activity is the student conference work. At various times during the year conferences are held at different colleges and to these our own association sends delegates. When such conferences happen to meet on the campus the M. C. A. entertains the delegates from other places. This year the M. C. A., co-operating with the “M” Club, opened and furnished the recreation hall for the students. The week of conferences conducted by Student Pastor Gearhart was also sponsored by the organ- ization and the great success of the week spoke well for the M. C. A. Rev. Harry Cressman, our own student pastor, is one of the leading members of the association. His work among the students is greatly appreciated and the M. C. A. is proud to name him in its roster.

The ordinary business of the organization is carried on in the German tongue, lectures and talks by outside speakers and members of our German department are given in German. Although all of the meetings of the club are interesting, there are perhaps three which stand out most prominently during the course of the scholastic year. The first of these is the “Weinachtsfest,” or Christmas party, in which the Verein gives vent to some of that quaint German holiday spirit; the second is the " Damen Abend (Ladies ' Night), in which the members are given an opportunity to show their lady friends how much German they know; and the third is the famous “Ausflug,’ in which the students try to show that they appreciate the spirit with which the outing is given. Besides its many other activities the German Club has displayed its ability along the lines of dramatics, presenting each spring a group of one-act comedies, which are very popular, not only among the students, but also among many of the townsfolk. The three plays presented last season were: “Versaltzen” (Salted), “Kleptomanie” (Kleptomania), and “Nur Nicht Fluchen " (Only No Swearing). The German Club is open to sophomores with a grade of " B, ' ’ and to juniors and seniors. The limit of membership was placed at seventy-five, with the hope that it would some day be reached, but that time has already arrived, and now there is also a list of applicants.

It is rather an outgrowth and an extension of Le Cercle Francais, a society which had been exclusively for students taking French. Feeling the need of a larger organization to include all students of the Romance Languages, a group of men met with Dr. Corbiere last fall to reorganize the old club and expand it to meet the new needs. Since its organization the club has been one of the live groups on the campus. Meetings were held twice every month, with attractive and interesting programs, and social features were introduced with the best of success. The club is possibly the finest means of coming to a better understanding of the language, literature, customs and life of the people of the Romance countries.

Although only in its second year of activity, the Science Club has long since demonstrated its usefulness and value to the college. Regular meetings are conducted every other Thursday of the month, to which all members of the student body are usually invited, especially when there is an outside speaker who delivers an address on some subject of interest to all students. Along these lines the club has been unusually fortunate during this year, for some very fine addresses have been heard by men who were very prominent in their particular field of science. Active membership in the club, however, is restricted to students who are taking most of their work in the department of science and who have shown their worth as scholars.

Club T HE History Club, organized only a few years ago, has made very rapid progress and has assumed a position of importance among the scholastic organizations on the campus. The purpose of the club is to create a greater interest in the study of history and to extend that interest beyond the classroom. While the history of the past is given a place of great importance in the discussions, the history in the making is by no means neglected. During the past year the club held regular monthly meetings, at which prominent outside speakers presented special lectures and addresses, and in addition members of our own faculty gave interesting and helpful talks from time to time. The social aspect of the organization is also given due importance, several of the meetings having been preceded by a dinner or luncheon. Only members of the two upperclasses who are expecting to complete a major or at least a minor in history, and who have had an average grade of “B” in their work in history during the freshman and sophomore years, are eligible for membership in the club.

On December 12, 1927, a group of about twenty upperclassmen met with Dr. Horn to reorganize the Classical Club and from that time the club has held regular meetings and the interest shown by the members has been splendid all through the year’s activity. The purpose of the organization is to foster a greater interest in the study of the classics and to develop a closer fraternal relationship among those students interested in the study of the ancient languages. From time to time various members of the club present papers at the meetings on subjects of special interest. This year the chief interest has been in the study of excavations and their influence upon the knowledge of antiquity. Such efforts on the part of the students tend to supplement the work of the classroom and at the same time show that the study of Latin and Greek is by no means a dead or antiquated study. Membership in the organization is restricted to those students who are placing the major stress of their study upon the classics and who have qualified in scholarship.

The Business Association, formed by the students of the depart- ment of Business Administration, under the leadership of Professor Merkle, is one of these new groups. The purpose of this organization is to promote the interests of the department of Business Administration and of the college; to inspire undergraduates in their pursuit of an education fitting them for a career in the great world of business; to assist students to secure suitable positions upon completion of their college course; and to provide social contacts of an enduring nature. Although a comparatively young organ- ization, the Business Association has been very active throughout the year. At the various meetings of the club noted speakers from other colleges and schools, as well as prominent business men, gave talks on subjects of timely interest to the members. Like most of the other scholastic clubs on the campus, the Business Association places a restriction upon its membership in order to make membership in the group worth while and also to inspire students to do good work so as to be eligible for membership. Students of the upperclasses who have had a grade of at least “B are admitted into the club. E. J.

The club was formed three years ago by a group of students who were particularly interested in the playing of the game, and although its growth has not been quite as rapid as some of the other clubs on the campus, yet it has grown to fairly large size. The meetings of the club are very interesting to all lovers of chess. Not only the playing of the game takes place in the meetings, but many important problems concerned with chess are discussed and helpful advice is given to those who care to learn the game. The primary aim of the club is to foster chess playing at Muhlenberg, and thus far it has created a much greater interest in the game than had been shown by the students before its existence. In addition to its regular program, the Chess Club has this year sponsored chess tournaments in which there was unusual interest and keen rivalry. Meets were held from time to time among the students of the college, as well as with outstanding men from other places who were interested in the game. These meets give the members of the club a very good opportunity of putting into practice some of the principles they learn in the meetings of the club and at the same time they tend to create a greater interest in the club among the students of the college not identified with OFFICERS First Semester Henry Mattes, President Norman Schlegel, Vice-President Albert Buhl, Secretary-Treasurer George Smith, General Manager Second Semester Carl Lachenmayer, President Forrest Gotthardt, V iee-President Paul Driesbach, Seer clary -Treasurer W.

Harvey Herring set about to reorganize the Cue and Quill Club in the spring of 1927. He was supported by a number of students who presented the play, “Bonds of Interest,” by Jacinto Beneventi, with a fair degree of success. At a banquet tendered the players following the play it was decided to organize under the name, “Cue and Qudl Club. At this meeting, E. Harvey Herring was elected president of the organization. No constitu- tion was made, however, and the idea was to keep the organization free from the usual bounds of campus clubs. In the winter of 1927-28 prepara- tions were made and the comedy, “The Mistress of the Inn,” by Carlos Goldani, was presented by the group. This was sponsored by the Woman’s Auxdiary of Muhlenberg and the returns, both financial and otherwise, were gratifying. This play was coached by Prof. S. G. Simpson. It was at this time that E. Harvey Herring was forced to resign his position, due to the pressure of outside work. J. Howard Burtner was elected to take his place. A constitution was formed which gave upper- classmen only the privilege of membership. Sophomores were to be only associate members; as many of these to be taken into the club as seniors graduate. The active membership was limited to fifteen. With the new constitution the organization put itself on a substantial footing and work was begun on the commencement production, “The Return of Peter Grim,” by Belasco. Keys have been selected by the group and are presented to all two-year members. Incidentally, membership is given to upperclassmen only in rare cases — the method of getting into the club is through competi- tion in the sophomore year. Big things are ahead of this organization -it has merely started and it is growing in respect among the students of Muhlenberg. Its need has long been felt and it will in all probability become one of the most valuable, as well as important of the extra-curricular clubs. OFFICERS J. Howard Burtner Charles H. Drewes Samuel S.

Zimmerman T arsitp “M " Club S INCE its organization four years ago, the Varsity “M” Club has grown steadily in membership and has continued each year to exert a greater influence for good, wholesome athletics on the campus. “Serving We Live” is the very significant motto of the organization, and the pur- pose of the group is not only to further the college athletics, but also to act as a student booster organization to promote a greater sense of frater- nalism among all students of Muhlenberg. Perhaps the “M” Club’s paramount service to the college this year was its part, in connection with the Christian Association, of making possible something which the college had needed for many years; a recrea- tion hall for the special benefit of the students. Thanks to these two organizations we now have a recreation hall of which any college would be proud. The “M” Club holds regular bi-monthly meetings in the recreation hall, at which the business of the club is transacted and then there is usually a speech by some member of the faculty or a speaker from downtown. Several of the faculty members are active in the club. Coach Benfer, “Bill” Ritter, and Mr. Shankweiler have always been loyal supporters, and Professor Marks was this year taken into the club, in recognition of his record in athletics at Muhlenberg, when no awards or other recognition were given to the athletes of the college. When a student, participating in athletics, has earned his letter, he is eligible for membership in the “M” Club, and is then able to make sugges- tions and to participate in making plans for the further advancement and betterment of athletics in the college. s’ OFFICERS m k C.

During this time it has proved to be a decided advance over the old system of electing the managers of the various sports of the college. Before the organization of the Managerial Board it was the custom of the student body to elect the managers at the same time in which they elected the other important officers or managers, but such a system was very unsatisfactory since it was impossible that each student be informed as to the merits of the candidates and many votes were cast for men of whom the electors had never heard or had never come in contact with. Consequently the elections were not only unsatisfactory, but also decidedly unfair to the candidates and to the teams they were elected to manage. Realizing this deficiency, the Athletic Association appointed a committee to investigate the matter and make suggestions as to the proper change. This committee presented the plan to organize a managerial board in which each organization on the campus would receive proper recognition and whose business it would be to elect the varous managers of the teams, since such a group would be far more capable of selecting the proper men for the positions. The Managerial Board is made up of one representative from each fraternal group on the campus which has the recognition of the Pan-Hellenic Council; two representatives from the non-fraternal group; the manager and assistant manager of the sport concerned and several members of the faculty; Coach Benfer, Professor Fasig, and the graduate manager of athletics, Guerney Afflerbach. 3Km testmal ]t Weekly T HE close of the 1927-1928 college term concludes forty-five years of successful periodical publication at Muhlenberg. The present Weekly stands as a monument to the growth of so long a time. Every year has added new features to the original form until the present style has been attained. Since this year there were no old debts to pay off, the present staff has been more fortunate than most of its predecessors. Taking advantage of this opportunity, the editor planned for a better issue by enlarging it to six pages and adding new features. Such a move met with general approval on the campus. While the Weekly has maintained most of its old departments, they have been markedly improved. Especially has this been true of the humor section, where the “Spinal Column” has been continued under the able supervision of its originator, aided this year by an equally qualified assistant. From the student’s point of view perhaps the outstanding merit of the publication has been in the improvement of the editorial department, where current thought on student topics has been brought out very clearly and forcefully. This was largely because of the fearless attitude assumed by the editor. We may say that the editorials printed were truly repre- sentative of student opinion on all points. With the present reputation the Weekly has attained, succeeding staffs should have no difficulty maintaining a paper of a high standard and developing it in many new directions. John S.

Struble ]t Ciarla E LECTED early last spring, the staff of the 1929 Ciarla at once began to lay plans for this present book. First, of course, it was necessary to decide upon the placement of the various contracts, and after much discussion the firms responsible for the publication of the previous issue were again given their respective jobs. Berkemeyer, Keck Co., of Allentown, have had the printing and binding in charge, and through the David J. Molloy Company, of Chicago, secured the covers. The Northern Engraving Company, of Canton, Ohio, has handled all the cuts and etchings, and the photography was in the hands of the White Studio, of New York City. The contracts awarded, some art theme had to be selected for use throughout the book, and here a snag was struck. Having no artist in the class willing to undertake the task and yet feeling that the art work should at least have its origin in the college, the staff was fortunate enough to secure the services of Harold Bowman, the son of Prof. Charles B. Bow- man. Under his hand have developed all the designs used in the book with little or no suggestion from the staff itself. The staff feels that he has given the Junior Class the handsomest issue ever, and one which will not be surpassed for many years, if at all. It therefore uses this means to publicly thank Mr. Bowman for itself and for the class as a whole. The main points decided upon, detailed work began at the beginning of the fall term of college and has continued almost up to the date of pub- lication. Several new departures have been made, but in general the book holds to the well-balanced form of its later predecessors. The business staff has also been most fortunate in having the benefit of the faculty ruling including a Ciarla subscription in the college regis- tration fee. Such a step has enabled it to take advantage of all discounts offered for cash, thus saving an appreciable sum. Together with assess- ments on organizations and the proceeds from the sale of advertisements, these subscriptions have made this Ciarla virtually self-supporting. Such then has been the development of the book before you, the result of efforts which but few realize. A serious endeavor has been made to present a book truly representative of Muhlenberg and not only of the Junior Class. A further attempt has likewise been made to present this record of one college year in as pleasing and artistic a way as possible. jHufjlentierg Panti O UR band certainly has taken, this year as oft before, an undue amount of criticism, not from alumni and friends, but from the student body. If this important unit of our cheering section turned out 100 per cent., played like Sousa and marched like cadets, there was little praise given. But let any one be lax in attendance, let a few sour notes be heard, and the band was severely criticised and condemned; already the students expressed their regret in giving the band pecuniary support. Is that the MUHLENBERG SPIRIT? The band is composed, not of professional musicians, but rather of students with enough spirit to offer their services and learn to play an instrument that Berg may not want such an important organization. Let us give the bandmen the credit and praise due their efforts. For the second successive year it has played at every football game and has been an important means of arousing and maintaining Muhlenberg spirit and pep. During the winter it has been perfecting itself by constant practice in order to give a series of spring concerts. Its instrumentation and stock of uniforms has been properly increased through the generosity of the student body, alumni and friends. The band has an active membership of about forty. Its phenomenal progress in the last three years has been due especially to the ceaseless and untiring efforts of its faculty manager, Prof. C. Spencer Allen, who has freely given his time and energy that the band might prosper. Since midyears the band has shown marvelous improvement, technically. This is the work of our new musical director, Albertus L. Meyers, to whom the band feels deeply indebted. Who would not improve under such a leader? Mr. Meyers’ exceptional musical ability needs no amplification in the eastern part of our nation. OFFICERS James E. Drury Elwood Saxer Martin Ritter Daniel I. Farren Prof. C. S. Allen Albertus L.

This musical institution is one of Berg’s most ancient organizations. A great amount of time and energy, often unappreciated, is given by students and directors to uphold our musical traditions. In this age of radio the musical educa- tion and appreciation of the public has reached a high level. The club has to compete with the best musical groups in the land. The result is a necessary improvement in its technique and a wise choice of numbers. That the club has been commended wherever it has sung, is quite a feather in the cap of Professor Marks and his singers. The program is varied and very pleasing, catering to the diverse tas tes of its patrons. The prospects at the opening of the year did not appear so bright, for last year through graduation the club lost its two soloists and the leader of the orchestra. The latter position has been ably filled by “Gene” Twining, whose violin solos have contributed much to the success of the program. Tryon Bauer, the veteran accompanist and piano soloist of the club, has fulfilled the expectations his reputation aroused. The club has been most fortunate, however, in securing from amidst the ranks of the lowly freshmen, two excellent soloists. Professor Marks’ worries in this direction should be over for the next few years at least. Rudolph Mattson with his rich, mellow voice is a most capable and pleasing tenor soloist. In effective contrast are the deep, resonant tones of Welling- ton Ezekiel, the bass soloist of the club. To cap the climax, the glee men are proud to own this year a real quartette, whose voices blend marvelously well. With the two soloists, Wilmer Henninger and the versatile Paul Empie complete the quartette. This year, in place of the skit, which was received in the past with various degrees of enthusiasm, there has been substituted “The Pump,” a short musical sketch portraying an English Parliament meeting. This number has received widespread approval. In general, the club is extremely well balanced. Since only three members will be lost through graduation, we can look forward to several increasingly successful glee club seasons in the future. 1928 dMee Club program 1.

But in this field Muhlenberg is again fortunate. The orchestra, calling itself “The Cardinals,’’ and this year under the direction of “Gene” Twining, violin soloist of the Glee Club, has maintained the highest of standards. In previous years the college orchestra limited itself to a jazz program, but this season a step was taken in another direction. Selections from some of the better modern musical comedy scores, particularly “My Maryland and “The Song of Flame,” have furnished the back- bone of the program. This progressive step in the choice of numbers has been enthu- siastically approved by all who have heard the orchestra this year. A little misfortune was experienced through the loss at midyears of “Fritz Reinsmith, solo trumpeter, who transferred to continue his musical education at a more technical school. Otherwise the organization has had marked success and since only two members will be lost in June, “The Cardinals” expect to climb to greater heights next season.

Moyer IBebating D EBATING activities have continued this year, again under the able direction of Coach Gillespie. The squad lost only two men by graduation last year and so the line-ups remained practically the same. The schedule was short because spring vacations were so irregular that the management was unable to get together with several of our old rivals. Yet, all considered, the past season was a success from the debaters’ standpoint insomuch as we defeated our opponents in important contests. Coach Gillespie again has been able to give the squad cases which usually proved fool- proof. His keen insight and clear logic has always been remarked, yet never so much as during the past season in the development of both sides of extremely difficult questions. The cases prepared, Shimer, Gaenzle and Rhoda ordinarily spoke on one side of the ques- tion and Stover, Schlegel and Schaertel on the other. An incident of note in connection with debating at Muhlenberg this year was an edi- torial written by our coach and published in the Weekly concerning the debate with the British team early in the season. So good an analysis of the situation was it that the whole article was quoted verbatim in two of the largest debating journals of the country. Additional comments in those and other magazines point to Mr. Gillespie’s article as a clear and concise treatment of the difficulties arising when American and British debating teams meet, with their different aims and treatment. The debating season of 1927-1928 opened on November 9th with a bang. As a means of arousing interest in debating in general the management undertook a meeting with the team representing the National Union of Students of Great Britain then making a tour of this country. Patrons were secured for the event and a good crowd turned out with the consequence that the undertaking was financially a success. The British team was made up of one man each from the London School of Economics, the University of Reading and the University of Edinburgh. They arrived in the afternoon and through the courtesy of the Chamber of Commerce were taken on a tour of the city and environs and then escorted to Bethlehem, where both teams were entertained at dinner by Dr. Edwin Heath, President of Moravian Seminary. -{ 236 The question itself was typically English — Resolved: That the only effective attitude toward war is an uncompromising pacificism. The Muhlenberg team composed of Stover, Speidel and Rhoda won the point on an audience decision, upholding the affirmative side. Idle until February 22nd, squad and coach none the less began at once to prepare the cases for the next question to be debated, which by the way was used throughout the rest of the season. The question was — Resolved: That the present system of primary elec- tions for state and national offices should be abandoned. On that date our negative team was met by Juniata College at Allentown and was taken into camp by them. The return engagement on March 8th at Holidaysburg before a large audience was also lost by a vote of 2 to 1 . The high point in our debating seasons usually comes in the annual triangular between Gettysburg, Dickinson and Muhlenberg. The rivalry between the three institutions has become keen even in debating, and so when we were able to defeat both Gettysburg at Allentown and Dickinson at Carlisle the season could be called a success. On the twentieth of March our affirmative team took on Waynesburg College, the tri-state champions of last year, at Kutztown. The Muhlenberg team was again able to come through with a win. So the season ended, four wins and two defeats. The squad this year suffers heavy losses by graduation. Rhoda, Gaenzle, Schaertel and Schlegel, all four-year men, will complete their college work in June.

Scheirer 0ratorp F ORMAL oratory at Muhlenberg this year again assumed the prominence which it formerly had on the campus but which had somewhat lapsed in the last few years. Muhlenberg has been a member of the Intercollegiate Ora- torical Union for eighteen years and has seldom until recently failed to place in the finals. We have now again come to the fore and retrieved our fortunes. After a preliminary contest at col- lege which picked him to represent us in the coming Intercollegiates, Henry Scheirer began intensive training under Dr. Brown. To the latter is due no small credit for our resulting success for he certainly exerted himself no end to improve the native ability of his charge. After several weeks of polishing, coach and speaker were ready for all comers and so in the eastern contest held here at Muhlenberg in the science auditorium on the evening of March 2nd, Scheirer won first place over stiff competition. There spoke at that time the representatives of Gettys- burg, Ursinus, Bucknell, Albright and Juniata, besides of course the winner. Shepard L. Witman, of Ursinus, was awarded second place and Roy Schrouk, of Juniata, third. So on March 16th at the auditorium of Geneva College these men met the winners in the western contest held simultaneously to determine the winner of the state. Scheirer showed up well, but lost out on the decision, taking second place, however. The win went to Raymond D. Walter, who represented Grove City College. We say then that oratory had a successful year and we congratulate Scheirer on his achievements. We are glad, too, that he has another year at Muhlenberg in which he will undoubtedly attain his full goal. Muhlenberg’s representatives to the governing body of the Inter- collegiate Oratorical Union are John S. Rhoda and M. Jack Morgan. Rhoda was president of the body last year and now Morgan is secretary. These offices certainly testify to the high position Muhlenberg occupies in ora- torical circles, { 238 } HHRHM a? y 1 wlfelA i fC , Y fc 4’ - gjj ■ jZjwy nr E ACH recognized fraternity on the campus is allowed three representatives to Pan- Hellenic. For a period of one year after recognition, however, such a group is on probation and so is given but one representative until expiration of that year, when complete membership is acquired. This provision accounts for the fact that this year’s council has two groups with but the single representative. Its purpose is to foster better relations between the several social groups. It undertakes to formulate rushing rules and binds each fraternity to observe those rules under severe penalty. It also arranges the fall rushing schedule and handles pledging in conjunction with a faculty committee. This year the council also ran an interfraternity ball, declared to be the affair of the season. For itself and to promote friendship among the members, the council treated its members to a banquet at the Americus, another proof of the co-operation existing between the eight fraternities affiliated with the organization.

The chapter was placed at the college in the spring of 1926 through the efforts of Mr. Gillespie, coach of debating, and was granted in recognition of Muhlenberg’s singular success in both fields of forensic endeavor, debating and oratory alike. The chapter by its very nature has always been small and consequently a TKA key has become all the more valuable. It is the fraternity ' s aim to make membership a fitting reward for college forensic activity. Tau Kappa Alpha is the second largest organization of its kind in the United States and numbers among its sixty chapters eleven of the better known state universities.

Founded originally as a local Educational Club under the guidance of Dr. Wright and Mr. Boyer, it grew steadily and was able to gain admittance into the national fraternity in a very short time. Progress has continued and now membership is a coveted achievement, made difficult by the standards required and the keen competition, due to the size of the Department of Education.

I liketh not his dull and shallow humor. Yet, liketh I still other things much less. It grieveth me that Guinivere is here. I liketh not her lean and hungry look. Nor liketh I my own fair looks and vigor. It matters not by whom I may be seen. E’en though she be a tavern wench or queen, All eye me thus, unseemly. My very bones do rack for want of sleep, Yet sleep may not by reason of my armor And still dare not remove it, For should Guinivere beset me with it off Then all the prayers of England would not help me. Enter the king In a night shirt with his good sword Excalibur in scabbard. Art: Ah! There ye are most noble knight, But why still clothed in armor bright? The cock doth roost long time enow ’Tis time ye wert abed I trow. Pray let me call my lackeys, three They shall remove thy armory. Lanc: If’t please your lordship call them not. To sleep in armor fully clad For me ’tis not a passing fad And thus ’tis oft my fashion For when danger comes I’m ready. Art: Thus be ' t as thou wilt, ' Though armor is not proper quilt. Methinks the things that crawl May work havoc in thy sleep, For thou canst not reach or scratch them Should they on thy body creep. Lanc: I thank thee, Lord, for thy kind thoughts Concerned ’bout my welfare. Thou art, my liege, most true and noble friend. Thy heart with kindness bubbleth over. To such extent that no one in the realm May say that Arthur lacks in love. Art: And lack in love I never shall For my good Lancelot, my liegeman And my friend. But now I sneak of other thing. Good Lancelot, remembrest thou My trusty sword, Excalibur? Well mark it well. (He unsheaths the sword.) Lanc: Zounds, forsooth ' tis ruined. What manner of joust hast thou been in To nick it so? -v n nBff y) 04 % fit - i 274 Art: Yea, Lancelot, it grieveth me to see That dulled edge, once keen and cutting. I weep, fair knight, 1 weep. For in all this mighty land. There was no keener blade Than this I hold in hand, And now behold it. Oh, good Excalibur, A time was when thou didst see service gory And now the queen hath made of thee A common depilatory. Good Lancelot, pray comfort me. My sword was made for battle, by excellent decree, And not for what the queen intended it to be. Oh frailty! Thy name is woman! My heart is heavy and I take my leave. (Exit.) Lanc: Most noble king I loveth thee Moreso than even brother. Thou lovest me, yet in thy trust. Inspired of love, I failed thee most. Would that fidelity of heart Would bear with me in certain guise As it hath served in others. Hut away, ye futile musings, away! Lancelot, ye are a man made noble By strife of goodly arms and armor. The armor that protects from sword, 1 ween Shalt protect thee also from the wiles of Arthur ' s queen. Enter Queen Guinivere in negligee Guin: Oh, pardon me, Sir Knight. Methought it was my husband’s room That I thus entered, hastily. Lanc: Woman thou liest. Guin: ' Tis just as well, how that may be, I still wouldst have a word with thee. Why dost thou shun me, Lancelot? Thou knowest I care for thee a lot And ne ' er before hast thou waxed wroth When I approached thee. If I didst not love thee, gentle knight, I would not come to thee this night. I have not seen thee since the day Thou vowed thy love but wouldst not stay. Lanc: Nay, Guinivere, it is not meet That thou should ' st thus encourage me. Thy husband is my friend, my king, I must respect thy wedding ring. Away, sweet queen, away. Guin: Don ' t tell me ' tis for fear of me, Thus frail and harmless as I be That thou wouldst have me go. Why sendest me away, fair knight? Why wearest thee thy armor bright? Oh heavens! Has it come to this That men wear armor to resist Onslaught of poor weak woman? Fie for shame, Sir Lancelot, Art thou brave or art thou not. Fie, fie, for shame, fie, fie. Lanc: Nay, woman. Stand thee there and scoff. I will not take my armor off. (Aside) I feel new strength in my resolve. Oh heaven help my mind evolve New prayer for my deliv’rance. — By Jupiter, she weakens! Guin: Thou spurnest me. I see it all. My sweetest wish hath turned to gall. 1 leave, cruel knight, but mark thee well; Like woman scorned, no fury hath hell. I’ll best thee yet, my pretty pet, In spite of mail and armor. (Exit.) Lanc: Ye gods be praised, I ' ve won the fight But I ' d rather stand against dragon’s might Than against the royal beauty Of Arthur’s faithless queen. Still I am sorry after all E’en though I have not had a fall. The wench is shapely and right fair — But that is neither here nor there. For ' though I love her overmuch I would not get my self in dutch. Thank Heavens thus it came to pass Methinks I’m rid of her at last — Re-enter the queen Guin: Oh, Lancelot Lanc: By Jupiter, it ' s in again. Oh! heavens Guin: Oh, Lancy, dear, I could not go No more to see and leave thee so. Pray grant me one request. One last embrace with thee, milord, With head upon thy chest. Then I ' ll depart full satisfied, No more to seek thee out. And linger here at Camelot To die of broken heart. Lanc: Desist, dear woman, do desist, And further, get thee gone! Thou knowest I cannot thee embrace With all my armor on. Nor can it be removed by one, Requiring lackeys three. Peace ho! Pray, woman, get thee hence And forever let me be. (He turns away.) Guin: Thou shalt not say me nay, milord For I ' ll remove thy armored pall. Behold, fair knight, within my hand. The precious wherewithal. (In her moment of triumph she holdeth aloft ye device which Lancelot gazes upon, spellbound.) Lanc: A can-op ' ner! Godswounds I’m ruined. Good Arthur, I have failed. A knight who never knew defeat ' Fore woman I have quailed. Oh grave where is thy victory? O death where is thy sting? My virtues lost at awful cost. I ' ll ne’er get o’er the thing. (He swounds.) Guin: So, Ho! That means my suit is won. Enter Arthur with attendants Greetings, milord, preparest thou To tend to me my wager. The knowledge of my womanly wile May improve thy betting style And in the future make thee sager. Art: Yea verily I cede to thee The credit for thy victory. Though ' twas by virtue of strange device. There could be no victory otherwise But soft, he stirs (Lancelot wakes.) Lanc: Away, sweet queen, away— — Nay, nay, away I say, away Where am I? — ah, the king. What means this ? Art: Be not alarmed, my goodly knight. But be assured all things are right. I with my wife a wager lay That she could not steal thy heart away. Knowing well thy virtue I sent her here to try you. ' Though in the case thou lacked a mite And might have lost thyself this night ' Twould not have been for amorous strife, But all because of small device That makes short work of armor. SI BIift Lanc: Good King, My King, pray let me plead For thy forgiveness in my need. Here I confess I’ve been unfair. Let me please you now and I’ll beware Of all future misdoing. Good queen, my queen, I’ve been sore tried My wits didst leave me without guide; Hut I should have known ’twas but deception: How couldst there be but that conception? Since never ever couldst there be A better, truer wife, than thee. Forgiveness, queen, forgiveness. (He kneels.) Art: The harm hath had its remedy Confession hath thy mind set free I hold thee quit of thy sore plight Let’s speak on it no more this night; But get us hence and drink some wine. The best my board affords is thine And now, pray, reconciled be With she who was thine enemy. After that we’ll back to bed, E’er dawn has come to paint skies red, To blessed sleep my wife with me And thou alone with mind made free, all.)

Upon investigation by ye high counsel of Cetronian Knights it was dis- closed to our reporter this day that said cup proved to be a beer mug pilfered from ye Jenkin s Inn, being so well decorated and garnished in such guise as to indeed appear to be ye much talked of Holy Grail. Sir Gardner waxed wroth at ye testimony of Sir Mack, giving vent to much storm and unseemly utterance in ye presence of ye court, whereupon ye ladies present didst give themselves over to much tittering. Ye feelings of Sir Gardner were not bettered much thereby, and in a final statement for ye press, he made known his intent in horri- ble avowal, saying, “Dam, dam the dam, dam,” meaning Sir Mack, " and I do not put a tin ear on him and dinge his mudguard at ye tournament on Friday, next, cuss me for a wet oyster; for never no knight may thus do me this disservice and bide on live, I’ll dinge his ash can, the which thereunto I have sworn a great oath this day.” All this doth smack of a heluva good fight at high noon, Friday next, when accuser and accused doth meet in ye lists. Those having the required wherewithal, canst purchase tickets at ye local apothecary store for two bits ye ticket. GOOD HUNTING Sir Swank, ye light hearted, doth report excellent success at hunting ye past two days, having bagged two dragons and one chimera. He doth also report the existence of enchanted forest situated near ye Saucon Valley, said forest causing much bewilderment and strange matter of perception. Sir Swank doth testify that upon seeing two strange manner of monsters coming toward him, he didst launch out lustily with his spear, killing both with one lunge of that goodly weapon; but upon further investigation he RIOT OF COLOR AT NEXT JOUST ROMANTIC ORDER PURCHASETH NEW LIDS Ye campus didst wax warm in riot of color ye past several months since ye purchase by ye good Teutonic order of a considerable consignment of new buckets from ye con- tinent. Not to be outdone by their rivals, Ye Romantic order doth report receipt of a large consignment of scuttles from Navarre and do further make it known that said headpieces will be worn in ye lists at ye next joust with ye former order to be announced within ye next fortnight. Ye riot of color to be there displayed may well be imagined. What, with ye scarlet red headgear of ye great germanic aggrega- tion, mixed with ye gun metal blue of ye romanticists, twill indeed be a sight to behold, as ye boys mix things up in ye arena. Ye clash of color may prove fatiguing to ye eyes of ye beholders and ye which, therefore, smoked glasses will be for sale on ye grounds, and spectators are herewith advised not to attempt perception of ye tilt without aid of such contrivance. PERSONALS Ye most esteemed Friar Haas dist address ye Camelot Rotary Club at luncheon held at high noon this day on ye subject, " Good Knight!

His best suit of armor was much dinged by ye fall thereof and is now at ye blacksmith’s undergoing repairs. didst note but one lying where the twain had fallen, ye other having disappeared as if ye earth had swallowed it up. This doth bear close investigation into ye whys and where- fores of said phenomenon. Ye information doth not, however, smack of a total newness, in that triple-bodied monsters have been reported as seen near ye Cetronian caves and likewise roaming about ye Guthsville grottoes by ye same knight. Ye M. C. A. didst conquer ye rivals, Sir Merkle’s M. B. A. knights, in a 30-round bout at ye Irikwois Tavern, Monday, last. Ye knights of ye Holy Order didst contend valiantly for ye victory. After passage of six hours ye boys of ye M. C. A. didst lead with two flagons of rum. Ye victory was clinched by ye Gospel Knights when at ye eleventh hour. Sir Wickstrom, ye last cham- pion of ye Merkalites, slipped underneath ye table after ye last superhuman gulp of ye 24th round. At ye end of ye 23th round, Sir Donald of ye rival faction didst maintain that he was as fresh as when he started. Yea, verily, he insisted that he had not yet attained second breath and was about to change off from birch beer to lemon soda in ye event of an extra 5-minute period being necessary to determine ye victor and in spite of ye fact that such mixing of ye drinks is said to be foolhardy and likewise precarious. Ye next bout of ye M. C. A. will be with ye Apostolic Knights, an exceedingly strong aggregation of unbelievable capacity, who have lately greatly strengthened their team by ye acquisition of Sir Loy, Sir Shellhammer and Sir Boyer of Ausflug fame. It doth promise to be a long and strenuous battle. Ye winners will later meet ye strong German Club, thus far undefeated, ye contest to be quaffed on some neutral floor and ye decision to be rendered by knock-out.

P.) — Yesterday at high noon. Lady Godiva, wife of Sir Leofric, ye lord of Coven- try, didst ride a white mare bareback through ye towne. Ye unusuality of ye incident lie in ye fact that ye lady was unclad and uncovered save for her long flowing tresses wafting to and fro in ye wind. Detailed description of ye ride was gathered from Tom ye tailor, who was ye only individual who broke his promise not to peep. As a result of his cupidity, said Tom was stricken stone blind, but seemeth in nowise to lament ye fact, saying that it were a right worthwhile sight and further that he would not have missed it at a cost of a leg or two in ye bargain. Ye cause of ye incident was at first attrib- uted to ye loss by ye lady of her apparel at a game of cards and additional fulfillment of ye wager. Ye reporter on further inquiry didst learn that it were simply a little family affair whereby ye lady didst win from her lord ye right of lowering ye taxation. Ye towne assessors are now at work on a new system whereby ye rates will be much cheapened and less burdensome, for the which whereunto we doth this day doff our hats to ye most gracious lady.

Our clientele is steadily increasing among those colleges and schools who believe good art work and good copy require the very best work- manship, type material, modern color presses and binding equipment. These factors form a vital part in the con- struction of all year books produced by this establishment, and enable us to make such annuals the rule and not the exception.
