Twilight on Collegefhlill
The tranquil lake refieets the star-strewn skyg
Like a deep jewel it wears the great, red moon
Upon its breast-long, low, black cars roar by-
Somehow, the twilight never comes too soon
On these atumnual evenings, when to trees
The wind is crooning wistful serenadesg
When the long walks are flecked with light and shades
All of earth's beauty seems bound up in these.
Most lovely pictures that the hand of night
Has drawn upon each shadowy field and stream.
When trees stand out against the fading light
It is the hour to vision, and to dream
Nor of our home, our loveg the tinseled town
For us the hill, the twilight drifting down.
-Thomas Randall Berkshire, '27
Moonrise Over-the Muskingum Hills
Somehow, the moonlight never seemed so fair
As when it came across the last, dim hill,
Weaving faint shadows in a slim tree's hair,
Clothing the town with splendor. Oh! the thrill
Of watching for the first pale, silver spears!
Of waiting, hand in ha11d, while the rich night
Grows calmer a11d more tender as the light
Grows purer, till at last the moon appears.
There is a feel of power in the dawn
When its magician crowns the hills with gold.
Titanic strength in storm clouds, lightning-riven.
But only we know beauty who have gone
To some high place and watched the moon unfold:
The perfect flower in the deep fields of heaven.

In 1921 an unusually large class of freshmen entered Musk-
ingum, some of them were noisy, some were quiet, some knew
their places, others did not-in other words they were typical
freshmen. They took up school work with enthusiasm, they
won their first Scrap Day, but as sophomores they lost the second
to the class of '26, They have given their best to Muskingum,
they have contributed two college orators, splendid athletes,
Christian leaders, social leaders, debaters, and good students.
They owe Muskingum a great deal and Muskingum is grateful
for what they have done. They have come and, with this year,
are to go, may life prove to them satisfying.

Hail to the Class of '26! We have come at last to our junior
year and althouh we are not given to boasting We feel that as a
class we have accomplished many things and stand for many
things of which We may justly be proud. Because of class
unity and class spirit, of which our class has been a preeminent
example, we won all the events in both of the Scrap Days in
which we engaged. We carried oH the honors in the intelligence
tests and some of our students rank among the best in school.
We have contributed to all school activities and as a class our
school life has been most fortunate and happy. May all of the
members of our class be drawn closer together and more and
more to the Muskingum spirit as our senior year comes and
goes. Our college days are rapidly going and this fact is surely
a challenge to each of us to be certain that he is making the
most of them.
THOMAS DOWNS ANDERSON
Tom has the rare virtue of always being in a good humor. At any rate he nearly
approaches that ideal, for he is rarely seen without a smile and never fails to greet
us with a good natured "hello." Sociability seems to be his second nature. He is
willing to stop and talk to us, whether on the campus or in his garage with his
The science rooms of Johnson Hall are the places most frequented by Tom, since
he is preparing himself for medical school. When he puts on his shell-rimmed glasses
he has a studious and business-like air that is a strong assurance that he can accom-
plish whatcver he sets out to do. The lighter side of his nature Finds expression in
singing. He is a member of the Glee Club and a student in the Conservatory.
MARGARET ELIZABETH ATKINSON
Red curly hair and wistful smiling eyes-as well as a diamond ring-belong to
Margaret. Margaret travels much in tall company, but although the big proposition
on her hands takes most of 11er spare hours, she has found time to make many pleasant
friendships in our class. Margaret's quiet sincerity is always attractive and perhaps
one of her nicest characteristics. There are few girls on the campus who have com-
bined dignity and charm to the extent that she has. For these three years as she has
lived day by day among us, we have grown to love and trust and respect her.
. ARTHUR RUSSEL ARMSTRONG
What sort of a fellow is Art?-a mighty fine fellow-a likeable fellow-a jolly good
sort of a fellow. Being fond of travel, he went three miles west of here last year to a
certain little red schoolhouse and poured his soul out in the instruction of the young.
Heaven has bountcously blessed him in handing him down to the class of '26 because
of tl1e year's absence. Wc're glad to have him though, for his red cheeks lend color
and brilliancy to our crowd. In his Freshman year Art was elected to the Glee Club
much to the sorrow of those who live with him. Art has a tendency to be absent-
minded-forgetful of everything except dates. Altogether though he's a pretty fair
specimen of nntainted youth and we're glad he belongs to '26.
EVA MARY BORLAND
"I can call spirits," Mary might say with Glendower, for indeed she does delight
the fair inmates of the dormitory with her fortune telling. But besides this, she is
carrying a great many subjects for one so small, and her scholastic standing is certainly
very low, if "A" is low. Dignihed and serious as she may appear, Mary is as fond of
a joke as any one.
Class spirit is not lacking in her list of good qualities, for she entered the fresh-
man Scrap crew with enthusiasm. When Mary's ill luck and ill health forced her to
drop out of school for almost a year, we emne to realize how much we thought of
her. She's a good ehum, is Mary-and we're glad she's twins.
STANNARD McLEAN BUTLER
Butler has all the dignity and poise of a French marquis or an Italian duke.
He is a little hard to get acquainted with, but is very genial once one has managed to
make his acquaintance. He gives the impression that he is quite satisfied with the
world in general, having no desire to buck the established order.
The dignity and ability of our class were materially added to when Stannard came
to Muskingum last year, for he has both artistic and scholastic propensities. His
basso is valuable to the Glee Club and his abilities as a comedian were shown last
year in "The Ape," when he was a member of the memqable "Cullid Coon Quartcttef'
Besid'es being a singer, he is a competent violinist. Hats off to Senor Butler, Cravat
SARAH IRENE BURNS
Art and artists have a strong fascination for Sarah Burns-she has many pictures
and one life artist in her collection.She haunts the studio several afternoons a week
and draws boats and birds and paints moonlight scenes and such things. Happily
her artistic streak does not include an "artistic temperament." She's a delightfully
easy person to get along with-good natured and friendly, There is far more energy
than one would expect in such a small bundle. As to concentration-if Sarah studies
with the same rapt, interested manner with which she paints, We judge she gathered
many "A's" on the day of harvesting.
JAMES LOYAT. BORTON
Borton gives the impression that he is the quiet, ironical obse1'ver of life. For
sound judgment and solid good sense it would be necessary to seek far and wide on
the campus for his superior. He is not given to proffering free advice, and seems to
be disinterested in affairs in general. But just try to catch him napping! In our
scrap with the Class of '27 he helped us by his clcverness in concealing the football
cover from the freshman hordes.
The trend of Borton's thinking may be judged from the observation that much of
his work is done in the Mathematics Department and that he was frequently seen last
fall helping his brother make a topographical survey of the campus.
Here is another of those diminutive members of our class who Hits about,
seemingly care-free, but who nevertheless get a great deal accomplished. We feel
sometimes that we would give almost anything to have such a disposition but our wish-
ing gains us little. We would not be too certain, but to us she looks sort of mis-
chievous with her ready smile and sparkling eyes but maybe her looks belie her. New
Concord, her home, is proud of this fair daughter who bears all unconsciously a greater
than the usual amount of good looks. When we mention Indiana, Pennsylvania, her
smile is only the broader. .
- LOIS LYDIA BRECKENRIDGE
Peppy, and jolly, and always willing to work-such is our Lois. She was one of
the social secretaries at the "dorm" this year, and any of the girls who live there will
tell you that she is just full of ideas for good times. For her musical ability she is
rewarded by being one of Muskingum's chorus girls-or in more dignified language, a
member of the Girls' Glee Club. Lois wastes no time in getting from place to place,
but steps along briskly, giving no one a chance to say she is inclined to be lazy. KA
word to the wise is sufficientj She is a member of the "Sparkler Club," and to the
young n1an for whose sake she joined, we wish to offer our congratulations.
DOROTHY IRENE BYERS
"Dot" is one of the "small but mighty" members of our Class. "Pep" is her mid-
dle name. To meet her once is to admire her forever. She is a mighty good little
financier, due to her training in the handling of "Bills," and has been Treasurer of our
class for two years. "Dot" does not let her college education, however, interfere with
her studies-for very seldom does she have to feel uncomfortable in class for fear the
Professor suddenly says, "Miss Byers." Methodieal and dependable are words that
characterize "Dot"-and when our editor chose her as one of our calendar editors this
year he knew that the calendar was as good as finished.
RUSSE LL PARK BO B BITT
Russell is a loyal friend of Muskingum. He comes to New Concord to attend
school when he might have attended the college in his own home town in Pennsyl-
vania. Surely this is indication sufficient to prove his affection for Muskingum and
for the Class of '26, X
It is understood that Russell is thinking of the ministry. In Htting himself for
the seminary he finds the activities of the Y. M. C. A. and the Gospel Team to be
helpful.. He is a member of the Forensic Club, and has public speaking abilities that
will stand him in good stead when he gets a charge of his own. He is said to have the
capacity of finding out things for himself, even rivaling Sherlock Holmes in this regard.
RUTH MAB EL BORLAND
"She is a Winsome wee thing."
"Twinnie" is one of those precious articles that come in small packages. She has
been with us here at Muskingum all three years, and during that time has made a place
for herself in the heart of each and everyone of us. Some folks have the ability to get
along with everybody and Ruth is one of these folks, for we have never known her
to be in a ,quarrel or say an unkind word of anyone. She surely did her part toward
helping our girls win their event both Scrap Days-and furthermore she is still very
much interested in athletics. In accordance with the tradition for her sex she talks gt
great deal--but as a redeeming feature she always has something to say. We're glad
we know Ruth for somehow after you've been with her you feel that any pep you've
lost has been fully restored.
JOHN EDGAR BEST
We find in "Johnny" a man with more than the usual share of energy and spirit.
No doubt it is his "scrappiness" that makes him valuable in getting things done effi-
ciently. He rarely pushes himself in, but when given a task to do he sees to it that
it is done quickly and well. Besides, he can study when the need arises, as is
sometimes the caseg and he can have a good time when he feels like it, which is almost
always. John's only fault is his quick temper, of which, however, he never loses com-
plete control. It is even doubtful whether we can justly call his temper a fault ,for
he cannot play tennis best, study best, argue best, work best,-in fact, be Best-until
his ire is slightly raised.
' IRMA REBECCA COLLINS
Irma is another of the peppy members of our class. She Hits about the "Dorm"
making friends wherever she goes--and if you hear someone coming along the hall
singing or humming a merry tune-you may be almost certain that it's Irma. She's
one of those rare souls that you don't mind having for proctor for she always sees your
side of the situation, in fact she's sometimes the "biggest pig in the puddle." The Stu-
dent Volunteers proudly claim this little "redhead," and we all know that she'll be
most successful in her chosen life work because of her strong Christian character.
JOSEPH PHILIP COGDELL
Joe came to Muskingum three years ago from Tennessee, riding all the way from
his "Dixie Paradise" on horseback. You can't fail to notice him, even in a crowd, for
he towers head and shoulders above the average. When he speaks one feels that
something important is being said, for he speaks as one with authority. In class he
responds readily, showng that no small portion of his time is spent in study.
Other things occupy Joe's time besides his studies, however. He seems always to
be busy at something. Often he is seen at the United Presbyterian Church busily en-
gaged in keeping things in order. Part of his time is spent with the Gospel Team,
of which he is a loyal member. Surely many of us can profit much by emulating the
cheerfulness and industry of our good-natured giant from sunny Tennessee.
JAMES MAURICE CAMERON
Jim's favorite expression is "Well, I hope you're satisfied!" And we can see in
this that he is very much interested in pleasing people. He dislikes being "kiddcd"
about his original jokes, but this does not detract from his sympathetic good nature
at other times. He is always ready to do a favor for anyone who might ask for it.
For some mysterious reason a few of Jim's best friends have contracted his mid-
dle name from Maurice to "Mo' rice." More mysterious still was the rumor that ,lim
once seriously considered sending home for some bolts with which to fasten l1is trunk
to the floor of his room in order to keep it from wandering out late at night.
ELLA MARGARET CARSON
Ella spends many hours each day in the laboratory of the Home Economics Depart-
ment and her efficiency as a cook is already becoming well known on the campus.
She can bake cherry pie fit for the president or a hungry student. Doubtlcss she will
return to her home in Oakdale, Ill., at the end of her Senior year and begin to put
her knowledge into actual practice. Ella isn't very talkative but saves all her secrets
for Blue Books-and from them she receives many rewards. Although she is quiet
and reserved, she has made many friends on the campus and is well known as an
example of quiet good eomradeship.
HARRY CARLYLE CARSON
Carson is another of that group of wise people who came to Muskingum this year
to enter the Class of '26, He came last fall as a stranger, but so quickly has he
adapted himself to his new environment that we almost forget that he has been with
us for only a year. His sociability and interest in people have been great helps to
him in making himself known to everyone. At college social functions he usually has
a most hilarious time, throwing himself into the spirit of things in a way to help every-
body enjoy himself. His restless spirit keeps him always busy at something. We all
like Carson for his big-hearted friendliness.
CHARLES THEODORE CAMPBELL
Ted hails from Chicago, but last summer he spent his vacation among the moun-
tains of Colorado accumulating pep to spill in his cheer-leading. He is head cheer-
leader, and one valuable innovation which he has made is the organization of the
Rooters' Club for the furthering of effective cheering at football and basketball games.
Ted came to Muskingum from Oberlin last year and quickly acquired the Musk-
ingum spirit and an enviable popularity among the students. He is usually quiet and
sometimes seemingly preoccupiedg but he makes a genial friend and a good man to
talk worth-while subjects-literature in particular. He thoroughly enjoys a rambling
walk over the hills in the vicinity of New Concord. On such hiking expeditions he
is an excellent companion.
MARIAN LYDIA CABLE
Someone sent Marian a photograph and wrote on it-"to the girl with wonderful
eyes." Her Muskingum friends indorse the sentiment though tl1ey might not be so
poetic in expressing it. Those "Wonderful cyesn must be useful for studying as well as
for setting young men a-dreaming, for Marian's grades are not to be scorned. She is
famed for being a dispenser of the social smile and smypathetic tear-never mixes the
roles but applies each to the appropriate occasion. Marian displays great originality
in her choice of fancy diseases. She gave everyone quite a scare this year, but by care-
ful nursing pulled through. She's a likeable girl--is Cable and possessor of a host
of friends. H
PAUL OSCAR COCHRAN
Cochran is quiet. He rarely attracts attention to himself. He is a close student,
intent upon making his classes count. Whenever there is something obscure about a
lesson, trust him to keep asking questions until he understands thoroughly. "Fat" is
majoring in chemistry, and we understand that he expects to go to dental school. He
should make an excellent dentist, for he strikes us as being humane and sympathetic.
Perhaps "Fat" is not as widely known on the campus as he would be if he were
not quite so retiring in his disposition. But those who know him intimately find him to
be a fine friend and a good sportg and those who merely meet him on the street every-
day appreciate the friendliness of his smile and the sincerity of his greeting.
CLYDE HENRY CANFIELD
Clyde is one of the well-known members of our class, especially in religious work.
He is deeply interested in the Y. M. C. A., and is leader of the Gospel Team. In
these fields he is a thorough, earnest worker, and can be depended upon to get, things
Clyde belonged formely to the Class of '25, but stayed out a year in order to be
graduated with us. Perhaps he would not admit this, but nevertheless we prefer this
explanation to any he might give us. At any rate we all congratulate him on his
choice of a class, and are glad to have him among us. The ladies will be interested to
know that Clyde is a good cook. He developed his culinary abilities during the past
year, when he and his room-mate tried the experiment of cooking for themselves. Re-
ports have it that the experiment was quite successful.
Sara is bright
Sara gets A's in Greek
Q. E, D.
Sara has a sense of humor. Sara can tell twenty jokes, repeat eleven stories and
still be the first to pass her plate for a second helping. Sara jazzes for vespcrs at the
dorm thereby lending distinction to the service. Sara reports news for the ll. and M.
thereby adding to the cxcellency of that production. Sara belongs to the Student Volun-
teers. She is headed for Central Africa. Sara takes the faculty seriously-and that's
her most serious fault.
HARRY LAUGHLI N COWDEN
Harry is tall and bashful and blushing, sometimes happy and contented, sometimes
blase and seemingly bored with the world. He is an example to prove that it takes
all kinds of moods to make the man-or woman-and all kinds of men to make the
world. As long as Harry meets no particularly difficult task he is perfectly poised, but
he is sensitive and easily loses his equilibrium under trying circumstances. It is then
that he really proves to us that he can blush beautifully, even to the extent of rivaling
the redness of his hair, which is always blushing. Harry works hard at his lessons and
has talents in music. He also likes to write, else he would not be taking work in ad-
ALMA KATHERINE COULTER
Alma is shy, good naturcd and studious, a fine combination. She comes from St.
Clairsville and is one of those lucky individuals who have a car in town in which she
may jaunt home or over to Zanesville occasionally. The men seem to make little im-
pression on Alma, though it is rumored that St. Clairsville holds some pretty strong at-
traction aside from family ties, and that quite a bit of her allowance is spent in buying
stamps and stationery. For several days at a time, Alma will be quiet, scarcely speak-
ing at all, and then suddenly she will throw herself into the conversation and a'rgue
as if her life were at stake. Such unexpected sides combine to make her character an
interesting one to study.Wc hope that she will be as successful in whatever line of
work she undertakes as sl1e is in gathering the grades in her classes at M. C.
WALTER ALEXANDER CUNNINGHAM
Walt has some fine attributes. He is tall, handsome and noted for his winning
ways. He is a regular devotee of the library and with the exception of Carnegie has
shown more interest in that institution than any one man. We fear, however, that his
interests are primarily social rather than literary. Walt is a good fellow to have on a
committee, which being interpreted means: he is dependable and not afraid to work.
His grades can testify too that the things he works for are the things worth while.
Walt sojourns at the Mace House, but makes frequent pilgrimagcs up the dormitory
hill. We know why, but we won't tell, eh Walt?
HELEN JEAN COLE
Helen is one of our new sisters, so first of all we want to take this opportunity of
telling her how glad we are that she is with us. Her First two years were spent in
Hastings College, Hastings, Nebraska, where she was a graduate of the Conservatory.
Helen isn't however, one of those gifted souls wl1o soar in the clouds and never come
down to earth, for she's ready for a good time whenever the occasion presents itself.
Don't you remember our I-Iallowe'en party this year and the clever costume Helen
wore? Well, she is just as original in everything as she was in planning that dress.
With her distinct personality we predict a successful career for her in the musical
CHARLES BOYD CROUCH
The fellows at the Mace House have been heard to call Charles a sheik. In spite
of ourselves we can't help thinking that he deserves the name, whether hc likes it or
not, for he is always neat and his hair is always combed. Besides, he is by no means
unattractive to the ladies.
Charles has a very nonehalant air at times, and one might almost jump to the con-
clusion that he never has much to say. But generally he is not at all indifferent.
He has conversational ability and a good sense of humor. His chief weakness is that
for misplaced eyebrows, for once in Z1 while he is courageous enough to appear among
us with something of that sort decorating his physiognomy. liut the constancy of his
affection for them is in doubt, since their sudden appearance and more sudden dis-
appearance are the indications of a more or less capricious fancy.
WINIFRED ELIZABETH DEW
"None knew her but to love her,
Nor named her but to praise."
Somehow you just can't help liking Winnie for she is one of those true blue girls.
We know that "Service" is the guiding principle of her life for she's never too busy
to do something for you-and she is busy too, for very few social affairs are put 'on
around here without some assistance from Winnie. It's only natural that a person
of this young lady's type should be interested in music, so of course you find her at
Choral every Monday night. I suppose that her interest in the band could be ex-
plained in the same way, but I have often wondered if such is actually the ease.
What think ye, fellow classmates?
ARTHUR LEWIS EVANS
"Art" is one of the few Muskingumites who claim to come from Pittsburgh who
really tells the truth. I-Ie is long, lanky and likeable. One of his favorite diversions
is attending shows, and the jokes and tricks he hears and sees there he after pulls for
the benefit of his friends. He also finds time quite frequently to enjoy the company
of the gentler and 'cleadlier sex. Art has taken a remarkable liking to skeletons of
late, a fact quite in keeping with his desire to enter the medical profession.
FRANK DAUGHERTY EWIN G
He has a curious blending of practicalness and an artistic streak-this young Lochin-
var from the west. You will admit that a man who has the strength and skill to be a
basketball player, the cleverness to write 'flilack and Blew," the popularity to win in
class elections and the intelligence to make a success as a student-is an uncommon
man. It would be difficult to assign to Frank any leading vice, but we take the respon-
sibility of saying after due reflection, that his reputation for bashfulness stands higher
than anything else-even exceeding his almost perfect performance of blushing. Like
Conneaut Lake, he grows bigger, better and more popular every year. We hope that
some day he shall appreciate how warm are the friendships he has made, just living here
and talking little.
ELIZABETH FELL FREEMAN
Bick is one of the "Best" girls in our class. By "best" we might mean a number
of things-pep, loyalty to Muskingum, athletics, and-Johnny. She was one of the
reasons our girls won their event in Scrap Day during our Freshman and Sophomore
years-and in those same two years she captured the much coveted white and red
"A's". In skating, hockey, tennis, and hiking Bick shows up equally well-in fact, she
can be termed a good all-around athlete.
Among her personal characteristics we must mention her smile, for somehow it
just makes you want to know her right away, and then when you do know her you
realize what a good pal she is.
EARL WILLIAM FORD
One of our substantial Juniors is Mr. Ford, who lives so close to New Concord
that he is able to drive to and from school every day. Consequently his Buick is fre-
quently seen parked in front of Johnson Hall. Ford is interested in science and has
a practical turn of mind, acquired partly from his close contact with reality on the
farm at home. He spends his Saturday forenoons in the Physics laboratory and is
an interested member of the Physics Club.
Earl likes to have some fun along with his work, too. Sometimes he enjoys him-
self at others' expense and to their annoyance. But it is absolutely impossible to get
angry with him, for he is always in Such 3 good humor himself. So we leave him to get
all the enjoyment he can out of life-and we trust that this will be a great deal
MELISSE ROSE FREEMAN
Like her name Melisse has personality and can't be confused with anyone else.
She may be more impulsive than industrious, more generous than wise, more plucky
than prudent-but they are faults for which we like her. Melisse does everything we
would like to do and don't dare. She cuts classes 1'ecklessly and gets away with it.
She reads Chaucer with a gallant swing. She talks at the rate of one hundred words
a minute without the slightest inconvenience. She's one of those impetuous eager
souls always flaming with some new enthusiasm. She is one of our champion skaters
and tennis players. High strung, warm hearted, keenly and joyously alive4that's
"Her heart is like an outbound ship
That at its anchor swings."
WELLS E LlAS FAY
Wells comes from the West, where the birds sing bass. But evidently the birds
have been able to make a
has rare accomplishments
. Since he began studying
Lorelei" and "O Tannen-
his major subject, and
that Wells is pretty good-
don't do all tl1e singing out in lllinois, or Wells would not
place on the Glee Club. Besides being a good singer, he
in the art of blushing-an art practically lost in these days
German we occasionally hear him singing snatches of "Die
baum"-prcsumably for his own amusement. Geology is
mathematics occupies much of his spare time. You can see
looking. This fact added to your knowledge of his accomplishments in the arts of
blushing and smiling attractively will explain to you why the girls as well as the
fellows like him very much.
GLADYS MAE FORSYTHE
She has a singular capacity for accomplishing many things-this Gladys friend of
ours. Muscoljuan and Y. W. Cabinet claim much of her time, and there is scarcely a
committee for this party or that drive in which she does not play an important part. Yet
she has kept a sense of balance and values despite her popularity and ever increasing
friendships. Situations never overpower Gladys, and her common sense and 1JI'3.C-
ticalness keep her from having those deep nts of blues. What is her charm? Perhaps
it is her sincere interest in other people that never fails to fascinate. .l.'erhaps it is
that she looks on life with untroubled quiet eyes. We
' "Love her for her smile, her look, her way
Of speaking gently, for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine."
But most of all we love her because she is herself-Gladys Forsythe.
WILLIAM THOMPSON FINLEY
William is one of our debaters who could convince you that there were thirty-six
hours in a day if he tried--and the strange thing about it is that you like him the better
for having told you that he's right and you're wrong. Bill has a smile for everyone and
an unconquerable determination to be happy. If the top has blown off one of his pet
plans, he doesn't get downhearted, but only throws back his head, grins and says, "Well
it might have been worse." His general ability is shown by the fact that he is a
member of the B. and M. Staff, Student Council and Y. M. Cabinet. We're all back
of you, Bill, and we wish you the best of success after you leave this campus.
ESTHER GRACE FINLEY
Although Esther's blue eyes and lovely hair are probably first noticed, they are
soon forced to yield first place to her charming relined personality. Few of us feel
that we really know her, for Paul requires so much of her time. Those of us who do,
however, realize what a true and loyal friend she is. Esther has always been one of
our better students, yet occasionally one misses her in class and concludes that she is
strolling somewhere with Mr. Montgomery. For a year Esther was at Tarkio, but the
lure of Muskingum was too strong and she came back to her class and friends.
WILBUR IRWIN GREGG
Belmont, Ohio, sends to Muskingum this model young man. Wilbur is interested
in sciences and accordingly haunts the laboratories in johnson Hall. I-le presides over
cauldrons of strange mixtures, and with the others in that Chemistry Department
helps to send up those 'evil odors to the library. Languages also, are a specialty for
Wilbur. This linguistic talent would serve him well as equipment for a diplomatic po-
sition or as boss for a gang of dagoes. Gregg is a quiet sort of fellow until he gets
started. The fellows declare he is a good sport and a loyal kind of a friend. They
says he has aspirations to be a great scientist, but with that sheik haircut we would
suggest he play the part of the handsome hero in the movies.
WILLIAM EDGAR GLENN
Edgar is quiet-in public, at least. Perhaps he is not so quiet when the audience
is small.Not only is he quiet and a bit shy, but kind hearted and considerate, as quiet
people often are. He studies hard at his lessons, for he is conscientious and endowed
with a great deal of solid common sense. He does not spend all his time studying,
however, quite often we see him out walking with a certain little fair-haired sopho-
more. When the sun shines brightly on Sabbath afternoons, we rarely fail to see them
out for a stroll about town.
They say that nicknames are a sign of popularity, and Evangeline is known to
everyone as "Van"-so you can draw your own conclusion. Somehow her smile and
curly hair just appeal to you. From the time we entered school Van has been con-
stantly doing something for Muskingum and the Class of Twenty-six. This year she
has been one of the livest members on the Y. W. Cabinet. Sometimes general ability
and a specific talent go hand in hand, and such is the case with Van, for she not only
carries through successfully whatever she attempts, but she has a most pleasing voice
which has won her a place in the Girls' Glee Club.
THOMAS HAZ EN
Folks who are especially talented are seldom appreciated, and we wonder if
Tom is not one of those folks. The readers of the B. and M. can testify to his
ability along literary lines, for he.is Literary Editor of tl1at publication as well as of the
Muscoljuan. He spends many long hours in the library, in secret communion with
the Muses, we suppose,-for he frequently produces charming bits of original verse
and clever literary criticisms. It must not be supposed, however, that Tom has time
for nothing but study and literature, for his musical and social activities claim a part'
of his time each week, and we hear--from fairly authentic sources-that he is an un-
usually interesting conversationalist when his audience is not too large. Strangely
enough he is interested in science as well, and is majoring in physics.
JEAN LORRAINE HALL
Jean leads a double life. She dances like a lovely pagan QU May Day, but 'she be-
longs to the Student Volunteers. On the campus, she gives a rather .vague impres-
sion of being a likeable girl, but to her frlends she shows another side-whimsical
and sparkling. jean is blessed with a sense of humor-that gift of thegods-and she
speaks cleverly with an easy off hand lightness. She has a way of writing letters, has
Iean- a shining accomplishment and graceful talent, But then who wouldn't get prac-
tice with a fiance a thousand miles away.. When the band plays "God Save the King,"
lean stands up-for she is a Canadian girl, though her people are now living in Kan-
sas. Of course there are activities we could mention-B. and M. Staff, Y. W. Cabinet,
"A" Association, but we like jean not for these but for her clever, whimsical charm.
HAROLD CLYDE HARRIS
Har,-is has always been a very silent and peaceable member of- our class. He is
such a good worker that he never has time to attract attention to himself. And truly
that would be a compliment to anyone. .
If Harold were not so fricndlynwhen one meets him on the street we might have
had difficulty in making his acquaintancle. But anyone who has talked to him will
tell you that he can carry on an interesting conversation. He is serious minded, and
what he says is usually thelresult of meditation. His interest in extra-curricular af-
fairs is Chicay Centered in his work on the Gospel leam. He has the great capacity
for solid friendship, and a reserve power that will be of value to lmn in the battle
DOROTHY IRENE HENDERSON
This is Dorothyvs 'fn-St year' at Muskingum, but her winning ways have already
madc her many friends. Her smile makes you feel that she's really glad to see you and
not that your presence is. merely an excuse for giving her face a rest. She is very
fond of telling ghost 510,-lcveantli playing tricks, and once, we are told, she even sac-
rificed an evening in the "Lib in order to -redecorate the rooms in 21 Certain house
in our Village, "Dot" has such good disposition that she even dares folks to make her
angry, and to date no one has been successful. We feel that some school child,-en are
going to be extremely lucky inlabout two years, for Dorothy has decided to east her
lot with the pedagogues for a time-and then after that, what?
, FORREST HALL
We have heard of Fanueil Hall and Hira Hall, but until we met this worthy we
were ignorant of the fact that there was a Forrest Hall. Mr. Hall belongs to that
great tribe of people who migrate some eight miles westward along the pike-coming
from the fair city of Cambridge. Mr. Hall comes to Muskingum as a seeker for knowl-
edge. From the first he decided that studying was the main circus, and he has never so
much as poked into one of the sicleshows. Mr, Hall has limitless pluck and endurance
and the kind of grit that makes him see a thing through to the end. A man with
perseverance like that is worthy of our admiration.
MARY HELEN HERRON
Mary is quiet and unassuming and for that very reason, perhaps, we don't all realize
how capable she is. On Monday nights you need never expect to find her at the
Dormitory, for she's a faithful member of the Choral Society. She also has quite ,a
bit of ability in "tickling the ivories." We think of Mary as an HA. A. A." girl, mean-
ing that she's willing to do Anything, in Anyway, at Anytime. She is a most conscien-
tious little person, and when she promises to do something you know that it's as good
as done. "Intimacy breeds appreciation" surely applies to Mary, for those who know
her intimately certainly appreciate her thoroughly. '
BENJAMIN FINLEY HAZEN
Hail to the chief! Many a wrinkle and line has he gained in the making of this
book:-no longer is he the childlike and bland little boy who wandered out to school
with Brother Tom. Ben is one of our "young intellectuals," but he is not a grind. No
one in school has dipped in more phases of college activities-social, religious, exec-
utive, literary, forensic, and succeeded so well. Add to this his popularity, cleverness,
and with that he is already an "illegant" speaker, and you may see that Benjamin
Finley Hazen is a man apt to maketan impression in years to come. He is rather given
to platitudinous ponderosity in promulgating his scientific cogitations and psychologi-
cally philosophical observations-but then everyone has his little failings.
AGNES ELIZA BET1-I HAI-I N
Haven't you often wished that you knew this attractive-looking little girl, with
the snappy black eyes, better? Not that slie's hard to get acquainted with-quite the
contrary, in fact-but sl1e's one of our newcomers, having been a student in Akron
University until this year. That twinkle in her eyes is not in vain, either, as anyone
who knows her well will tell you. Agnes is interested in Athletics of all kinds, and
while in Akron "U" she was a member of the Girls' Rifle team. fAgain I say, a word
to the wise is sulTicient.J History is her major and from the office records, the old
saying that "an attractive woman can have no brains" receives another fatal blow-
or in short, Agnes is a thoroughly good student.
ALBERT EM ERSON HEADLEY
Everyone around school knows "Doc" for he's ones of those likeable souls who
are friends to all. I-Ie's also one of our "M" men, having made quite a hit in exclusive
baseball circles. Quite in contrast to this diversion "Doc" spends part of his spare
time in keeping his vocal cords in training, and his jaws in working order.
for he's a member of the Men's Glec Club ,and by the way, he looks real good in a
dress suit. We musn't forget to mention his scholastic ability, for "Doc" doesn't con-
sider his college courses necessary evils, but rather opportunities to be pursued and
ivertaken-and we'rc told that he doesn't have much difficulty in coming out first in
t ie race. .
CORRENNA LAVONNE HARKER
Since this is Correna's first year with us, not all of us have had the privilege of
becoming well acquainted with her. But when We did break through that wall of shy
reserve, we found a girl worth knowing. lt is possible that one who had been 3
dignified school teacher could appear at a Hallowe'en party dressed as a dashing
young man? Corenna dared, but when the party was over lasped back into the quiet
blushing girl as before. .Perhaps We could say she is a "Dr, Jekyll and Mr. Hyde!!
We can truthfully say with the poet,
"A dog-rose blushin' by the brook
Ain't modcster or sweeter."
LESTER ALVAI-I HILL
Lester is from Verment, but unfortunately he has been with us for only one semes-
ter. Hence we have never felt that we know him so very well. He entered Muskingum
and the Class of '26 last September for the first time. The sickness of his father made
it necessary for him to leave school, so he did not come back the second semester.
But this good natured New Englander has made a good impression with us who were
his classmates for this short time. He has the best wishes of his newly acquired friends
and the hope of everyone who knew him is that he will again find the call of Musk-
ingum strong enough to bring him back again from distant Vermont.
CURTIS MITCHELL HUSSEY
"Good natured as the day is long." '
Such is the way we describe our Hussey. He has been with us since we first east
our lot with Muskingum, and we have come to think a great deal of him. He has a
quiet way of slipping around, but when it comes to jokes and witty remarks Hussey
is there with his full share. Last year our class basketball team discovered that his
athletic build was all that it claimed to be. This young man is thoroughly dependable'
and capable of making friends wherever he goes, so we feel sure that we shall be proud
to claim him in years to come, when he has shown the world what he can do towards
setting it right.
' JAMES WALTER IRWIN
Walter is one of that type of fellows who never miss chapel, who save all their
cuts until vacations, and who finally walk off with the scholarship honors. I-Ie can re-
cite the day's lesson without faltering and the profs always turn to him with a "What
does the book say on this matter, Mr. Irwin?" You can always count on him to
stand for certain things with clear reasons to back up his position. He is a tall, lean
man, hungry for knowledge and an argument. He is a member of the Student Volun-
teers and Gospel Team, and already travels here and there preaching to various aud-
iences. Noting this it is not difficult to determine what his life work will be.
MARY ALICE JOHNSON
A reception for new members would have been quite thc appropriate thing for
our class to have had last fall, and any of us would have been proud to have had the
pleasure of presenting this young woman to the rest of us. Mary Alice is one of those
girls you can't help liking. She is quiet when with those she doesn't know particularly
well, but when with those folks who are favored enough to be her intimate friends, her
tongue knows no lagging. She has a smile all her own which she is continually using,
with the result that her friends grow more numerous each day. As she was once a
pedagogue herself she understands the trials and tribulations of these beings, and does
her best to lighten their load by never coming to class intellectually embarrassed.
GLEN BERTICE JEFFERS
"Jeff" is one of our busy little men,-especially when the Y. M. C. A. is putting
on a party, for he is chairman of the social committee of that organization. The suc-
cessful "Y" parties of this year attest to his efficiency along social lines. ,
At times "Jeff" is as serious as a professor, and as "preachy" as a clergyman, but
most generally he is in for a lively time. Quite often, too, others have a lively time
at his expense. Because he is such a good sport, he is frequently the butt of practical
jokes and of the general round of "kidding," There is nothing more pleasant than
a good chat with "Jeff"g and there are many students on the campus who have found
him to be an invaluable friend :ind confidant.
RUTH MILDRED JOHNSON
One of our red-or perhaps we had better say auburn-haired lassies. If, how-
ever, red hair is a sign of temper, Ruth is the exception that proves the rule for we
never saw her when she wasn't in a good humor. She is friendly and jolly, and has a
smile for everyone who has a smile for her. She is very much interested in making a
name for herself in the mathematical world, and intricate geometric problems take
the place of cross word puzzles in her hours of recreation. Ruth is surely to be ad-
mired for her spirit of determination, her industrious attitude, and her quiet, yet
MARY EILIZABETI-I JOHNSON
It is hard to classify Mary Liz as a certain type of girl, for sh-e is a pleasant combina-
tion of many types. Perhaps "earnest" would best describe her, however-for she surely
puts her whole heart and soul into whatever she does, whether it be preparing a long as-
signment, which to her is mere play, or settling some trouble among the "dormitoryites."
as she was President of the Dormitory last semester. She was also a most efficient
member of the Y. W. Cabinet this year. Mary Liz is capable yet modest, brilliant, yet
sympathetic, and able to generalize, yet given to detail.
HAROLD' ROSS KARN ES
The "professor" of our class. VVe literally mean this, too, foriMr. Karnes is one of
the regular instructors in the academy-much to the delight of some of its fair eo-eds.
One cannot help but be impressed by I-Iarold's business-like attitude of going about things.
He is an earnest student and has a fund of :information always at his command-yet he
does not contribute it in any pedantic fashion. He is quiet at times, but when
proper atmosphere he can be the most entertaining of talkers. We are glad that Harold
is a member of the Gospel Team, for we are quite certain that l1e will make a most suc-
cessful minister or Christian leader.
CLELIA VIRGINIA LAVERTY
Another young woman who showed her knowledge of the "fitness of things" by
entering our class last fall. Since then she has made many friends, .Because of her
welcoming smile and easy manner you are not long in getting acquainted with her, and
once you do know her you discover how lively and up to pranks she is. Clelia is not
of the shallow type, however, for she is very much :interested in her work, and is quite
ambitious. Despite her frequent visits to Cambridge, her native heath, she's loyal to old
Muskingum, and speaks a good word for her whenever' the opportunity presents itself.
VVe're glad you're here, Clelia, and we hope to see you back next year.
ALICE MABEL LAW.
A mouse of a girl is Alice-who just misses being Quakenish by the spirited lift of
her head. Alice has never made a big glare around school. She has been for the most part
like the candle hiding its light under the bushel. Because there are so many girls whose
natures seem akin to ginger pop of the most bubbling variety, Alice seems all the more
lovely for her dignity and reserve. Alice lives in town and doesn't have to fret about
forts and laundry kits and trunk checks like the rest of IIS. With all her quietness, how-
ever, Alice has a place in the friendships of all who know her and earnies with her our
best wishes for a successful, happy life.
DAVID D. LePAGE
David is a new man to many of us, for he has been out of school for two years as
a teacher. You can easily identify him by his glossy-black hair and dark eyes, which
Hash sometimes when his temper is ruffled. Surely he would have no trouble in disci-
plining a school, for one look would be sufficient to discourage even the most venial of
He is interested in history and expects to major in that subject. He has a mind of
luis own, and is not afraid of an argument to support his own viewpoint, even if the argu-
ment be with one of the professors. He is a good sport, however, for he accepts an-
other's viewpoint if the arguments are sufficiently convincing. This good sportsmanship
he has probably developed through his favorite sport, wrestling.
MARGARET ALICE LEDMAN.
Peg's desire to bc a "Lyon" is not indicative of a fierce and unruly dbluosition. ln
fact, she possesses quite the opposite characteristics. She is generous hearted and will-
ing to do anything for you. "Peg" and "Peppy,, are generally thought of as going hand
in hand, and in Peg's case they gmost certainly do. She can tell jokes by the score.
When we say she is a "good sport" we are using this term in its most complimentary
meaning. Peg also has musical ability and is a member of the Girls' Glee Club and the
MARTHA MYRTLE l.AW
Whenever we think of Martha we think of an old-fashioned Flower garden, 'for
there's something gentle, and sweet, and old fashioned about her. We clearly see
the charming old lady she'll be at sixty-five or seventy. It certainly does you good
to be with Martha, for she has a quiet air that just seems to rest you. She's perfectly
capable of having a good time along with the rest of us, however, yet she never loses
her calm dignity. Of course she studies, as her record plainly shows, but even the
stiffest assignment doesn't get her ruffled or out of humor. Our wish for you, Martha,
is that life will never cause you to lose your gentle spirit.
PAUL ROSS LYNN
Paul has been called by some the typical college man. Second thought will surely
'justify this judgment, for Paul's'interests and accomplislnnents are about as widely
varied as those of any man in our class. If you wish music, he can supply it from
the pianog if you want social accomplishments, he has them, too, for he has the knack
of meeting people under all sorts of conditions: if you want conversation, he is
ready to argue any question you might suggest. Sometimes he argues for the mere
sake of argument, and seems to enjoy seeing someone quite worried over his views
on religion or whatever else it might be. E '
Last summer Paul made a tour of Europe, but he rarely talks about it unless
someone begins asking questions. Then he can tell you a lot of things you never
dreamed he knew.
LOIS BARBARA MARTIN
It has been thought, and generaly accepted, that you can't be two things at once,
but we wish offer to the worldproof of the falsity of this belief-and one proof is
Lois. What possible connection, you say? Well, Lois is thoroughly ancient and mod-
ern at the same time. Her major is Latin, and yet she's authority on the newest
song or the latest way to wear your hair. We all like Lois, for she's so full of fun
and gets such good times out of life, yet she manages to acquire quite completely, too,
that part of our education which is contained between the covers of books. Lois, we're
sorry that more of us arcn't your "bubbling over" type.
M1 LDRED ISA BELLE MEANOR
Once in a very long while we know a truly beautiful character. That rare tribute
we grant to Mildred Meanor. We pay tribute to her genius for fine friendships. We
Day tribute to the girl whose life in this school makes it better. We rub shoulders
with her for months and find her the same today and tomorrow. VVe Find her with
purposes unchanged, with ideals never grown misty, firmg staunch, sincere, with dis-
appointments faced squarely, honors-quietly. Many a friend has blessed her for the
wisdom and beauty of her counsel. Of the many girls who have come and gone
since Muskingum has stood on the hill, we doubt if any were liner than Mildred
We are all acquainted with Ray and extremely glad that we are. It is certainly
Fme to have a dignified and purposeful man like him among our number. ,He acts
as a steadying influence on some of us wl1o may be inclined at times to forget what
we are really in college for. Ray is a close and consistent student with a definite
aim. He is studying hard to prepare himself for medical school. His home is in New
Concord, so lie understands the town and the college better than the average student
does. He does not study and work in the laboratories all the time, however, but de-
lights in taking time out occasionally to have a good social time.
' GERALDA PEARL MCBRIDE
One cottld write volumnes about Gerry. How we do like her! We like her friend-
liness. We like her delightful little hesitating manner of speaking. Her endless good
nature and tact have become proverbial. 1t's no wonder she is popular. It would take
quite a bit of investigation to discover even one committee in the last two years upon
which she hasn't served. The Juniors owe to her the remembrance of some splendid
parties and good times. That innocent expression of Gcrry's has bailed her out of a
multitude of scrapes. When suddenly in the dead of night there are great doings in
the dorm, if you're wise, you'll know where to locate it. Miss Mcliride has a sense
of humor of no mean capacity. Gerry is the kind of girl you'll remember when you're
fiftyg remember as the finest kind of a sport-as the Finest' kind of a friend.
VICTOR HAUSMAN MARTIN
Martin once belonged 'neath the banner of '24 but due to the fact that for the
last two years he has been teaching the young of the land, he is now allied with the
cohorts of '26,
Whether or not he came into our midst, and gazing upon the fair ones here, de-
cided that those of another region were fairer, we will not state here. At any rate
he has eschewed dates and the like, and has devoted himself with great earnestness and
diligence to books. Night after night he studies till his eyes are blood-shot and red.
He says he likes to teach better than go to school, but he has returned to fit himself
more fully for his calling.
MARY ALICE McKIBBEN
Haven't you met people whom you instinctively admired? Well, Alice is one of
these people. When it came time to elect our junior member for the Honor Council,
Alice, because of her fair mindedness and high sense of honor, just seemed to be one
for the place, so consequently she was chosen. She is one other person besides your-
self whom you enjoy hearing recite, for her replies are always interesting and to the
point. Everyone admits that the sort of entertainment we enjoy is an indication of our
character, and here again Alice comes up to our highest expectations, for she appre-
ciates the best there is in art, literature, music, and dramatics. Despite her ability,
Alice is truly democratic and one of the friendliest girls in school.
AVERILI.. ALLEN MOSS
"Av" lives in our neighboring city of Cambridge. He believes in getting his edu-
cation close to home, so he came to Muskingum three years ago and has been with
us ever since. He is another of the super-men of our class, being considerably taller
than the most of us. A dignified bearing, probably acquired by being obliged to look
down upon us in conversation, is one of "Av's" distinguishing characteristics. And
his thoughvtfulness has a way of making one feel glad to have him for a friend. Econ-
omics and history are subjects in which he has special interests, but he can talk inter-
estingly about many things. One of his favorite traditions seems to be his annual trip
to Morgantown, W. Va., during Thanksgiving vacation.
Eugene is a man of most unusual mold. He has the rare ability of being able to
see tl1e two sides of a question. He is friendly and his big blue eyes sparkle with
flashes of fun. Maybe these are a few of the reasons for his being such a leader and
so well liked by his troup of Scouts and the youngsters in his Sunday School Class.
Quiet, but Gene has a lot of work to his credit. He has been "Y" Treasurer,
School Song Leader, Assistant Manager of the Glee Club, and, for two years, class
representative on the B. and M. Board of Control. His outstanding talent is music
and his outstanding hobby, boys' work. At thc same time, he is no slouch at a certain
kind of girl's work, as well.
MARY ANN McKEE
Mary is another one of those daughters of the clergy who are so numerous at
Muskingum. Hence she has had advantages which many of us do not enjoy. One of
these is that of being able to be a "holy terror" and get away with it. In politics
she may be a radical, or what notg in religion, a .Presbyteriang and in music, a contraltog
but one thing is certain, and that is that in philosophy, she is decidedly Speneerian.
Mary's sweet contralto voice has won for her a place in the music circles of the
College and in the Girls' Glee Club. She is one of the joke editors of the 1926 "Muscol-
juan," a member of the "A" Association, and a good student. She is interested in many
things and has traveled.a great deal-facts which account for her ability to carry on a
lively conversation and be at home anywhere.
LOWELL l-lANNOl.D MeAT,.LISTER
"Eriendly" because of its too frequent usage has lost some of its real meaning, and
yet "friendly" in its truest sense very aptly describes "Mao" Hc's one of those fel-
lows who would divide his last cent with you if necessary. Lowell is always ready
and willing to throw himself whole-heartedly into whatever is to be done-and he
isn't always doing what the other fellow says, either, for he has plenty of initiative
of his own. Everyone likes "Mac" because he isn't constantly finding fault with the
world in general, but instead, if things aren't going as he thinks they should, he quietly
sets about to right them-and doesn't give up unless he's thoroughly convinced he is
in the wrong.
Lute is our artist, so if you like the art and cartoons in this book, he's the one
to whom you can express your appreciation. l.ike all artistic souls he's temperamental,
so if by chance he's passed you by at times without speaking, don't hold it against
him, but take it for granted that he has seen another girl who has inspired him, and
he's hurrying home to get her face on paper before she's gone forever. Lute does not
have a great deal to say, but when he does express his opinion, he wants it to be ac-
ceptecl-and rightly so, for should not the few words of a wise man be given more
consideration than the many babblings of a fool?
NELLE ISABEl.l,E MOORE
Allow us to present the future Dr. Moore-for such is the goal toward which
Nelle is steadily striving. If present success is a sign of future success we know we
shall see Nelle's name in a forthcoming edition of "Who's Who" as pre-medic courses
are no nightmare to her. She intends to use her knowledge in
thus being of double service to the world. As she thoroughly
time We feel confident that she will make her lot a happy one
to be. She is such a worthy friend that consequently she has
join with us in wishing her success and happiness.
ROSS ELBERT MILHONE

"Well, there's one thing I've been hunting for all day around here, and haven't
been able to find," said Milhone to a gang of fellows assembled in his room on the
evening of his first day at Muskingum. ln reply to the question, "What's lllilt, Ross?"
came the calm and weighty answer, "Oh, that Muskingum spirit I've heard so much
about." That gives you a slight idea of the unusual way "Fat" has of saying the
usual thing. just to look at this "superman" you would know that he's generally in a
good humor, but I guess if he once does get his red hair on fire he doesn't fool.
We all like Ross very much and we're sorry that he doesn't like us well enough
to stay with us more, for every week he tunes up and sings "There's no place like home
in Senecavillef' I wonder if there's a reason?
JAMES KENNETH MILLER
You would like to know that good-looking fellow who managed the Varsity Foot-
ball Team last fall? That was james Kenneth himselfg and a very efficient manager he
made, too. And that's just james Kenneth all over. He is the efficient president of
our classg hence the prominent position we have given his picture. He is also the
efficient assistant business manager of the 1926 "Muscoljuan"g hence to him we ascribe
much of the responsibility for the success of our Annual. Sometimes you probably
think "Ken" is too much for a good time to be really efficientg but you are making a
serious mistake, for he is never frivolous when tl1e occasion demands a strictly busi-
ILA MAE McCAUSLAND
lla comes to Muskingum from Westminster and we have nearly cured her of all
she learned there. She is well known on the campus and her fair curly hair is the
cause of considerable envy among the girls-especially on rainy days. lla is never at a
loss for anything to say and she literally punctuates her sentences with waving ges-
tures of her hands and expressive movements of her eyes. When she studies is a deep,
dark secret, for she is rushed continually with dates. lla is having a jolly good time
at Muskingum and doubtless later will develop into a well-rounded woman. just at
present however, her philosophy holds that
- ' "Why should we delay,
Pleasures shorter than the day."
ROBERT M. McQUOID
Bob is one of the New Yorkers, and never lets you forget it. His outstanding
characteristics are his good nature and sense of humor-he was never known to take
anything seriously if there were another way out. One must be able to give and take
a joke if he is to get along with Bob. Hislchief fame in Muskingum has come from
his musical abilities-both as a singer and pianist. He has been one of the mainstays
of the Glee Club since his Freshman year. The girls Bob has courted and the miracul-
ous adventures he has met with in love form a new Odessy. Bob intends to be a doctor
but serious doubts are entertained as to whether or notuhe can summon sufficient
gravity to inform an occasional patient that he is sure to die.
WALTER EUGENE MARSHALL
Marshall has never known anything but the pedagogical atmosphere, for his
father is a professor in the College. If atmosphere means anything we should expect
to find Walter a perfect Greek or Roman. But we believe that neither Latin nor
Greek has very many charms for him. He lives in New Concord all the year 'round,
hence is pretty well acquainted with everybody and everything. We assume that this
is one chief cause of the nonchalant attitude he takes toward many things. Sometimes
we are inclined to think that he is not half as unconcerned as he seems to be. The
facts that he comes through with good recitations sometimes, and his constant com-
panion is his pipe, are healthy signs at any rate. Surely no one would ask more.
FRANCES ADELLA MCKIBBEN .
The laughing wrinkles around Frances' eyes give an indication of her good nature.
She is a pleasant person to have around-she does not chatter insanely nor keep a
grumpy silence. Frances' voice is one of her most charming characteristics. It is low
and deep and soft-and it is not the cultivated affected type. What magic Frances
uses to make A's come her way we do not know, but her name appears in+ the paper
with the honor list as regularly as it comes out. Good grades, many friends, and sin-
cere respect-are not these which Frances has attained in M. C. worth while?
JOSEPH NELSON MAXWELL
During our three years at Muskingum we have all learned to think a great deal gf
"Ted," Whenever there is anything to be clone by the Class of Twenty-six, we can
always count on Joe helping if it is at all in his line. He is ambitious, and rec-
ognizes a good opportunity when he sees it. Witlrthese characteristics and the general
strength of character back of them, We are COl.1I'li1I'lg on great things from .Toe in the
future, and we don think he's going to disappoint us.
JOHN VANCE MCBRIDE
John is one of our brave men who has taken one of the "two fatal steps." Com-
prende? Although he simply refuses to talk at times, he is getting very witty and has
a vast wealth of experience to tell if you can only get him started. "Horny" has such
a mathematical mind that he can't resist doing mental addition even in psychology
class, at least we suppose that's what he was doing when he answered "four" at roll
call. He showed his athletic ability by winning one of our dashing blue and White
sweaters. john is interested in everything that is worth being interested in, and he has
a host of friends-two facts which surely speak well for him.
KATH RYN OGI l.VIE
The gift of being interesting is given to only a few, and Kate belongs to that
select group. She can tell you the lDOSt ancient of jokes and you laugh as if you had
never heard it-she tells you the dumbest of dumb stories and you weep with ergcgdile
tears. There's some personal magnetism in an art like that that mighty few people
have. Kate is always in motion without being nervous or vivacious-swiftly in speech
She has received a liberal share of her fairy godmothers gifts. She sings beauti-
fully-see the Glee Club. She's practical and efficient--see the Y. W. Cabinet. She's
a good sport-we refer you to the fellows. She's a sincere friend-the girls know
that. She's altogether charming-ask Johnny.
WILLIAM MONTGOMERY NICHOL
Here's a Nichol from Brooklyn. As soon as Bill came he won for himself a place
in the Glee Club and in his second year made the Debate Squad. He can tell yon
anything you want to know about the St. Lawrence waterway and he can fling
arguments for both sides at you faster than you can duck. He would persuade us to
his views of the question, but by untiring efforts of himself and colleagues, the school
is now more undecided than ever. As a student Bill seems to be quite successful and
lle oft delights the prof's heart with his earnest discussions. He's a genuine good
fellow-nothing counterfeit about this Nichol!!
DORIS JANE POWELL
Doris has figured in so many college cases that we suggest for her the official
title of "The Youth's Companion." Doris is shy and quiet 111ost of the time, but there
have been occasions when she has spoken beautifully and at length. She majors in
French and has been such a good student in her day that she reads French plays and
novels for sheer amusement. Doris is fair to behold and has eyes that will not behave.
"Eyes" is a mistake-her right one is usually hidden by a curl. Two dimples and a
genial smile-there you have Doris as you see her. As you know her-a delightful
companion and a sturdy friend. For attractive personality and lovable character We
nominate Doris ,lane for a corner in the Hall of Fame.
El Paso surely lost one good Spaniard when "Fonsc" came to Muskingum to prepare
himself for medical school. If you ever see "Al" out late at night, you may guess
that he is holding a rodeo for cats and other animals unfortunate enough to be suitable
for biological experimentation. Sometimes he allows some of his pets to dwell for
a while in the kitchen at the Stag House, much to the dismay of the cook. During
the day you can usually Find "Fonse" in one or another of the laboratories in Johnson
Hall. A great deal of his time is spent with the Glee Club and Quartette, where his
tenor is much in demand. Occasionally he can be prevailed upon to sing some Span-
ish songs. l.ast year he sang in "The Ape."
ANNA GUERETTA RAY
Anna reminds us of a little Pilgrim maid-in her calmness of spirit, gentleness of
speech, and patient manner. However, she has an air of determination which enables
her to go through with whatever she has started. We like her because she seems to
take us away from the hurry and scurry of the oumarch of college life, and to place
us in a lonely wood on a summer afternoon where all is peace and quiet. Anna is a
true friend to those whom she calls friend-and a delightful companion to those of us
who are not able to know her so well. Her smile is most pleasing and is never left at
home for she is a traveler on the friendly road.
FRED BRADFORD PETTAY
Pettay is one of our classmates who has a family to take care of him while he is
in school. He has been a married man ever since we have known him, which was in
our freshman year. Last year he saw fit to desert us for Ohio Stateg but the attrac-
tion of the Class of '26 and his feeling for Muskingum must have proved too strong for
him to resist, for the opening of the school year found him back with us again.
A friendly- good humor compensates for his quietness and seriousness. Biology
seems to be his favorite subject. As a student his ability is indisputable, and he
is increasing his teaching ability by doing insti-uctor's work in the biology laboratory.
THELMA AU RIEL RUSH
Capable, ambitious, and determined is Thelma. Her capabilityis shown by the
fact that she was head proctor Ca 1110511 diplomatic disposition to holdj at the "Dorm"
last semester, her ambition by the number of extra hours she has takeng and her
determination by the fact that she's never a quitter, no matter what unforeseen obstacle
may plant itself in her intended path.She has a keen sense of hu1nor and many a
dull meal at the "Dorm" has been brightened by her hearty laugh. "Work while you
work and play while you play" is the motto which, by the way, some of us luke-warm
beings might adopt.
i DELB ERT BARTLEY RUTAN
Rutan was with us in our freshman days, but last year he went to Davis and
Elkins College. He was leader of Scrap Day when we were freshmen, and we always
associate him with athletics of some kind. He was on the freshman football and
basketball squads. Because of injuries, however, he is out of the game for good,
Although Rutan does not impress us -as a man of sentiment ,he must havg felt
the strong attraction of Muskingum to brlmg hun back. after a year's absence. And
then, of course, there is the added .attraction of belonging to- the Class of '26, And
again, Rutan's thirst for mathematics might have brought hun back to drink from
the refreshing founts of Calculus in the Mathematics Sanctum. You never can tell!
MARK SCOTT McGEE RAY
"Mark, the perfect man and behold the upright." Marke plays the Hute and belongs
to the Student Volunteers. We have often wondered if Mark will pipe for the benefit
of the natives-perhaps announcing, "Come gather around and we will precede our
meeting with a little fluteing service."
Mark is a confirmed Bradshawite-eats, sleeps, and occasionally loafs there. You
can always count on Mark to stand for certain principles with a "Hold the fort against
the invaders" attitude. Mark takes a personal interest in every student in college and
does his best to persuade them to walk the straight and narrow path. If we insist on
being' wicked, we can't blame Mark.
We, who know Dale, consider it an honor and a real asset to be his friend. He is
quiet and thoughtful with a hearty liking for good, clean jokes. Dale has willingly
gone without his dinner and stayed up all night to help a fellow. In the long years
of his short life, he has learned to apply himself, and we all know that, whatever
has been going on the night before, he will be sure to be at class on time and with
his work ready.
Dale was a three letter man in high school and was just getting his start in football
this year when a broken wrist put him out for the Season. He has also traveled
with commercial teams and played both basketball and baseball. T-Ie plays at a certain
indoor sport, toog a game called, Waiting-for-the-Postman.
HARRY VIRGIL REVENNAUGH
Virgil is "always and eternally" playing tricks on someone, but unlike most folks
of this type he also enjoys those that are played on him. He keeps the table at his fort
in a constant uproar during meals--and if some brave soul does attempt a return fling
at him he starts muttering to himself in such a manner that the whole table is again
convulsed with laughter. "Virg" is just a little distant at first, but once you are on
friendly terms with him, you discover that he is the best of chums.
ERNEST LESTER REED
The reason why we so seldom see Ernest in Montgomery Hall is that he is inter-
ested chiefly in science. We often see him in organic chemistry laboratory and on
Saturday mornings we find him in the physics laboratory. He never has much to say,
but he often seems to be smiling to himself. Doubtless he Funds some fun in life
which the rest of us are unable to see. We can never tell what these silent fellows
are thinking about, but surely their facial expression must give some hint as to their
state of mind. lf this is true, Reed must be occupied with pleasant thoughts when he
is at work.
CATHARINE M. STAUFFER
Kate is one of those people whom you are always glad you know, for you can find
so many things about her to admire and inspire you. You like her peppy ways and the
pleasant smile she has for everyone. You almost envy her, her understanding and appre-
ciation of the best literature, music, and art. You wish you had her gift of casting
worry and care aside andthoroughly enjoying life. You admire her for her ability to
hold down a position on the 13. and M. Staff, Muscoljuau Staff, and Student Council,
and still be so unassuming. She's a good pal to everyone, and lucky are those whom
she has chosen for her best friends.
DONALD AGNEW SPENCER
This is Donald A. Spencer. He has spent fully one-third of his college life defend-
ing that name against his dear friends who would call him "good-looking." He is
shown here in a fetching photographg see if they haven't the right. Don does some
clever stunts with the basketball and has a fine chance for his letter this year. He
chaseth here and hasteneth there and eollecteth ads for the li. and M. in his spare
time-he being the Official Manager in Chief. On the Y. M. cabinet he fills a mighty
gap in an efficient and business like way. He -is not these, entirely, however. The
story of his love affair would make a thrilling eplsode for the movies. Here's to -Don!
He's a good fellow from the ground up-and still growing.
PAULINE BELLE SIMPSON
Pauline never "troubles trouble 'till trouble troubles her"-and even then she
doesn't get discouraged and blue. She truly has the happy faculty of making the
best of everything. Despite her carefree attitude she has no fears when the official
envelope is mailed to l1er home town. Pauline has real ability along athletic lines and
is one of Muskingum's best basketball players. She is undecided as to whether she
will become a Y. W. Secretary or a housewife in a few years, but we are betting two
to one on the latter. .
GEORGE WALTER SMITH
"Walt" is one of our most outstanding men for several reasons. He is a star half-
back on the varsity football eleven, captain of the track team, member of the Student
Council, and Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, and an all-around good fellow with the most hilarious
laugh and most melodious voice in seven states. "Walt's" leanings are toward techni-
cal and business subjects, and he hopes some day to list himself with the engineering
profession. He seems to have a hankcring for Professor White's room in Montgomery
Hall, a still stronger interest in the physics laboratory in Johnson Hall, and a supreme
attachment to a certain front porch in the New Addition. In spite of all his activities
he finds time to make friends. Everybody seems to be his friend.
HELEN KATHRYN SMITH
You have seen that wee bit of a girl with black hair and dark eyes who Often
has charge of the library? Then you know Helen. She spends many hours behind the
desk in the library. Sometimes it is almost necessary to look twice to find her among
the large volumes that often lie on that desk. When she recognizes you as you enter
the library she looks up with a faint Hicker of a smile and then goes on with her work.
More amusing than all, however, is to see her cuddled up on a chair in the library
with a large book in her lap. She is always quiet, that is ,almost always, and we have
never seen her really lose her poise.
ELIZABETH LEE SCOTT -
Elizabeth is one of those folks who are always looking for something to do for
you. She says exactly what she thinks at all times, and her opinions are always worth
giving a second thought as she spends a great deal of time in mediation, and generally
arrives at a sound and satisfactory conclusion. However, she believes that "All work
and no play makes Jack a dull boy," so she has her hilarious times along with the
rest of us. Elizabeth does nothing half-heartedly-not even teasing. Wlteli she once
starts in you must get on your guard immediately or she will get the best of you, as
her mind works in no sluggardly manner. We who know Elizabeth best count her as
one of our truest friends.
g ROBERT THOMPSON SECREST
"Punch," "Life," "judge," College Humor," and all the rest, are completely
eclipsed when "Bob" Secrest gets started. They say that he is always at it, and any-
one who has been around "Bob" will vouch for the truth of tl1e statement that he
can get more laughs out of you in less time than any man this side of the fifteen-mile
limit. Besides being a good little boy who believes in getting permission to leave
town, he is a ravenous debater. Most of his surplus energy is given an outlet in the
Holy Sanctum of the Varsity Debate Association. Next to debating, his favorite sport
is raising a general rumpus wherever possible. In him the Philo Literary Society has
an earnest and enthusiastic supporter.
FRANCES MAY SNYDER
A rare brunette is Miss Frances of the smiling eyes and dimpled cheeks, but many
of us are not well acquainted with her because "Coe" occupies so much of her time.
A-nd might we not say also that we can't get much better acquainted with "Ceo" be-
cause she monopolizes so many of his spare moments? You remember the landing on
the staris of Johnson Hall, of course? And the comfortable window sill seat? Well,
that is one of Frances' favorite localities on the campus. She finds it to be a delight-
ful rendezvous, and it is there that we often see her, especially after our eight o'clock
classes on the third floor.
HELEN MARTHA SI-IEPPARD
Miss Sheppard has stopped her profession of teaching long enough to come to
Muskingum for more knowledge. We can't persuade her to stay with us long, how-
ever, for she hustles into a bus as soon as classes are over and goes back home to
Cambridge. Her cheery smile and friendly greeting faileth never, and her encouraging
words before an exam act like a stimulant. In class room recitation Miss Sheppard
has a chance to show that she is making a valuable use of her time. She carries extra
hours with apparentl no extra effort--something anyone would be proud to be capable
f l ' y
IRWIN DICKEY STEWART
Irwin belongs by birth to the professoriat, his father at one time having been a
professor at Muskingum. This fact accounts for his intellectual ability, which accounts
for his studiosness, which in turn accounts for the high grades which seem to be a
matter of course with him. He is what might be called an all 'round "shark," with
strong propensities for languages, and an insatiable appetite for mathematics. The
Mathematics Sanctum is one of his favored pleasure resorts. We are of the opinion
that Irwin should be a professor himself, for he looks like one, already. CThis is no
slam. Special pains were taken to exclude such thingsj I-Ie thinks for himself and
has a cynical attitude toward things in general-a very healthy and commendable state
GLADYS OLIVE STEPHENSON
"Ay! every inch a queen."
Steve's looks and regal air most certainly merit the application of this phrase.
Don't get the mistaken idea, however, that she's stiff and formal all the time-for you
should see her when she gets on a high. There's really no telling what she will think
of next. She is witty and clever, too, and is just full of original ideas about a host
of things. Her mind is unusually keen and she can clearly diagnose the most compli-
cated situation. She has a pleasant manner and a cheery smile-so no wonder her
friends are many.
ROB ERT RALSTON SAWHILL
This is Bob's first year at Muskingum. He has had two year's at Carnegie Tech.
It didn't take hime long to win a place for himself, for he has a delightful voice and
a charming personality that make him exceedingly popular wherever he goes. He
studies voice in the Conservatory and is a member of the Glee Club. He is much in
demand for solo work.
Bob is a fine fellow to talk with, especially about books and reading. He has read
a great deal and has his own ideas about the values of the books he reads. He likes
to play at chess, and is not unsuccessful as a chess player. But other interests occupy
a part of his
time, one of these being his interest in East Main Street.
ROY JAMES STEWART A
Roy is one of the Scottish members of our class. At any rate his name suggests
that he has some Scottish blood in his veins. Besides, when he talks he almost con-
vinces us that we are not mistaken. Perhaps one reason why United Presbyterians
are such substantial people is that most of them are of Scotch descent.
' All of us
and family to
who know Roy pretty well are aware that he is almost invariably in a
But this is quite readily understood when we recall that he has a wife

every day he drives over to school in his Ford Coupe.
GLENN GLADSTONE THOMPSON E
Famed for his many jokes and his propensity for rough house in every occasion,
Glenn is well known in M. C. He's one of our champion track men and runs around
the country breaking all sorts of records. Glenn is incurabily a ladies' man, He is
said to have contracted since entering college forty-one desperate cases, no less. This
is the man with the smile that won't come off. He smiles at work and he smiles at
play. It is rumored that he once smiled just before entering the Psychology Room to
take an exam. We fear all these smiles are bad preparation for the life he has planned
for himself. One is not supposed to smile as he murmurs, "Requiescat in Pace"-
and Glenn is learning to be an undertaker.
There's a lot of commotion-
Some fun is in motion-
Some clever remark-from Taylor
. Some mischief-now harlc
Muskingum-elsewherc--Mttskingum3 thus the story of Lloyd's pilgrimage goes.
"Elsewhere" in his Sophomore year meant Pitt. He found it not to be compared
with the Muskingum type of green pastures, so he wandered back l1ere. He is a pretty
good sort of a fellow, this Taylor-friendly and full of fun, save when I-lanna's been
particularly Hard Hearted.
To say that Kate is a dear stuns up a column of adjectives and saves argument.
She comes from Steubenville, Ohio, and admits that is a good place. She was away
one year but came back to find a welcome awaiting her. Kate is a slender little thing
with auburn hair and deep fringed eyes. Quietly and demurely she travels around the
campus, and only through sight of the laughing wrinkles around her eyes, do you get
a glimpse of her gay moods. She has taken such electiveas as will permit her to be
a cat carver or a foreign missionary, but has set.tled down this year to a major in
ERNEST FRANKLIN TROTTER
This blond-haired fellow never calls attention to himself by talking too much, H
seems to be perfectly happy in his own quiet way. Never have we seen him in a hurry.
He seems to have the happy faculty of keeping calm in the midst of the whirl. Some
people doubt the soundness of the old saying about "still waters," but somehow we
should like to believe that it does apply in Trotter's case. Sometimes we almost envy
his placidity. When the first signs of warm weather come in the spring, Trotter's
fancy fondly turns to thought of baseball, And he is a very good man on the diamond.
JAMES EVERETT TO M I3
jim might be called a survivor of the Hood in a sense that the rest of us are not,
for he hails from Johnstown, Pennsylvania. 'But we can't accuse him of building any
Noah's arks or other means of saving sinful humanity. That's why we can hold no
grudge against him. -
Jim is reticcnt but congenial, business-like fellow with a special ability and liking
for managing athletic teams. In the spring he is to be found at the gymnasium look-
ing after the equipment of the varsity track team. He is even-tempered and seldom
loses his equilibrium and patience. Anyone who knows will tell you that the possession
of those qualities is half of being an efficient athletic 1nanager.
DALE WILLA RD THOMPSON
A Concentrated energy and fighting determination are personified in "Tommy," This
is especially true when he breaks loose on the football field, where he has an almost
uncanny knack of running the ball through impossible places. As a recognition of his
capacity for leadership he has been elected captain of the varsi-ty for next year-captain
of the first team to play in the new stadium! Dale is a good man on the track as well
as on the gridiron.
Although Dale is usually quiet ,he is always in for some fun. I-Ie is not averse
to cutting calculus even-if the professor is only a half minute later than the law allows
and is half way up the stairs. Wlieii it comes to studies Dale falls for mathematics
and astronomy. Professor VVhite's mathematics sanctum seems to have an irrcstible
charm for "Tommy," for it is there that much of his time has been spent.
ROY ROELAND ULLMAN
There is no doubt in the mind of this young man but that the aim of a college
education is to secure knowledge, and toward that goal he is striving with a spirit of
earncstness and determination. He is accomplishing his purpose, too, for he is one of
our best students. Roy is very quiet and self contained, but he can bg a most interest-
ing talker if he so desires. We understand he is preparing himself for the teaching
To most of us the winters in New Concord are plenty cold enough, but we suppose
that Abner does not mind them at all, for he comes from North Dakota, where they
have real winter weather. Surely if we may judge his affection for Muskingum from
the distance he travels to get here he must be one of our most loyal Juniors.
Abner is inclined to be quiet, so quiet, in fact, that we find some difficulty in
getting really well acquainted with him. In the fall most of his energies are expended
on football. He is to be commended for his perseverance and industry in practice
throughout the football season, even if he receives little glory in the eyes of the student
body. The abilitv to stick to a thing through thick and thin is the real test of a man's
ELVIRA CLARA WRIGHT
"Here comes 'Honk,' so now the fun will beginf, It does begin, too-for when-
ever good times are on foot you can always count on Elvira's contributing her share
of entertainment to the gathering. Shc's clever, and witty, and jolly, and likeable. If
you are down in -the depths just hunt up Elvira, and she'll soon have you laughing in
spite of yourself. However, life is not one huge joke to her, for she is a hard and
consistent worker and believes in doing things thoroughly, and on time. Her own
ideals are high, and she is a constant influence towards bringing out the best there
is in those about her.
HERBERT CLINTON WHITE
"Herb" is a business man through and through, as may be judged from the success
of the 1926 MUSCOLJUAN, of which he is the business manager. A very large meas-
ure of the success of this book goes to the credit of "Herb's" efficient management
of the financial end of its production. His task was no easy one, and his performance
of it was an indication of his ability. "Herb" is all for order and neatness in every-
thing. Things out of order are very disconcerting to him. His room, his clothes, his
desk in the chemistry laboratory, are good evidences of this trait,-a very valuable
trait in a business man. His business experience before coming to school was a great
help in his financial direction of our annual.

CECI I. GILMORE WOODRUFF
To look at Cec you would think hi1n about twenty, but to watch him, you would
think him about nine. He's a nice boy, though, is Cecil, and if he ever grows up,
he will no doubt be a very fine man. He is repeatedly found asking the question, "How
do you get that way?" which goes to show what an intelligent, inquiring mind he has.
Cec says he is bashful, but we think he saves himself a lot of trouble that way. He
is full of fun and immensely popular with the girls, so he has had a royal good time
at M. C. It is rumored that he has lots of brains, but when wc interviewed him On
this phase of his life, he modestly replied, "I really couldn't say." The most important
attainment of all is yet unmentioned. You know Frances?
Everyone who knows Marie thinks a lot of her, and those who know her are
many. She is one of the industrious members of our class, and has learned the art
of conservation of time through concentration of thought. Marie seems to be particu-
larly gifted alng culinary lines, and spends a considerable portion of her time in the
sewing as well as cooking laboratory of Montgomery Hall. However, she does not
confine her interest exclusively to domestic science, for she is a most enthusiastic
rooter at all athletic events, and an equally appreciative observer or listener at dramatic
or musical entertainments. Although Marie is quiet, her opinions when given are
worthwhile and valued highly by her friends.
LUTHER EARL WALLS
Walls is another of the products of St. Clairsville. He was at Muskingum in 1916
for a few weeks but was compelled to leave school on account of the death of his
father. Since then he has taught school for several years and for the past two years
has been at Kent Normal. Realizing his mistake he has come back to us and expects
to stay with the class of '26 for the rest of his college career. He has done nothing
spectacular perhaps, but like many another Muskingum student has contributed his
part to the true Muskingum spirit. Earl is modest and unassuming but has a distinc-
tively pleasing personality for those who know him. He plans when through school to
return to the teaching profession,
HOWARD MARTIN WILSON
"His face is his fortune." By this we mean that Howard's photograph would
make an excellent advertisement for the well-known slogan, "Keep That School-Girl
Complexion." Don't let this statement be misleading, however, for Howard looks on
life quite seriously. He is President of the Student Volunteers this year and a member
of the Gospeal Team, thus indicating his chosen life work. As a man is innocent
until he's proved guilty, we conclude that Howard is musically inclined for he is a
faithful member of the Choral Society. f
HOVVARD EARNEST WINGET
Winget never intrudes himself upon us, for he is so quiet and unassuming that
he rarely attracts our attention to himself. When we were freshmen he was in our
English class. Oh! that memorable Hrst semester of English under Professor Work
and the fine times we used to have in our verdant virginity! We shall never forget
the jokes the Professor used to tell us,-for we have heard them so many times
before. But jokes are always new when we ourselves are young, and doubtless Pro-
fessor Work wonderecl why we laughed. Well, here we are reveling in th memories
of days past. We hope Winget will not take offense at being the means of calling
back to mind those happy days-happy because they are no longer ours.
SAMUEL CARSON WEIR
"Sam" is one of the indispensable men of our class. He is always very wide
awake and is aware of everything that goes on. He has a store of interesting infor-
mation on many subjects at all times. He has a special knack of taking charge of
things and seeing them through without jarring anybody's feelings. As photo-editor
of the MUSCOLJUAN he has performed a valuable service in helping direct the taking
of the many pictures that help make up the annual, his wide acquaintanceship among
the students having been a great help in this.
"Sam" is very versatile. He plays the piano, has ability to make friends, can be
comically amusing or serious as the occasion demands. Gospel Team, Student Volun-
teer, and Y. M. C. A., could scarcely get along without him.
HAROLD JENNINGS WILSON
Nearly everyone knows Harold, for he is never idle. Last fall when you came
to school you probably saw his little Ford delivering trunks and baggage to various
parts of town. Ever since then this Ford has by no means been unemployed.
Harold is always interested in having a good time. Much of his enjoyment comes
from his ability to enter into things with spirit and enthusiasm. ln the spring much
of his time is spent on the track and field. He is a good runner and javelin thrower,
having won his letter in track last year. When you meet him on the street, in the hall-
ways, or anywhere, you are always sure of a smile and friendly greeting.
CECIL BOYD YORKE
This is our assistant editor-brilliant in mind and complexion. Every once in a
while Cec retires to write a clever little story about New York's underworld. We
can't say just where he got the experience, or how New Concord lends atmosphere to
his little duels and shooting parties, but then genius cannot be tied down to localities.
Cec thinks girls are silly, but associates with them occasionally when in need of a new
heroine. He is always on the search for character material and he'll put you in a
story if you don't watch out. Add such items as singing in the quartette, reporting
for the B. and M., and reading for the Glee Club to his list of accomplishments and
you will see what an important young man Cec has become around school-despite the
fact that he insists upon wearing white ties.
HOWARD GEORGE YOUNG
Howard is another man who has been in our class for only a vear. It surely
speaks well for the Class of '26 when he comes all the way from Vermont to go
to college with us. If you don't know him, you had better get acquainted. The
stocky fellow with the knickers, that's your man. You can't miss him. I-Ie's a friendly
looking chap, too, and must be interesting, for he's a real New Englander. He is in.,
terested in religious work, and the members of the Student Volunteer Group have
found him to be a good addition to their regular number. We must not forget to con-
gratulate our Vermonter on his choice of a school and a class.

The Class of '27 was rather unfortunate in that it lost both
of the Scrap Days in which it engaged, but in no sense of the
word does this indicate that the sophomores lack class spirit or
class unity, for on every occasion they have shown themselves
splendid sportsmen. Altho as a class they are not old enough
for us to make definite statements with regard to their contribu-
tion to school life yet they are contributing and are prepared to
contribute many leaders in all lines of activity. We need write
little more for all they ask is an opportunity. They have college
spirit galore and when they graduate in 1927 they will have left
an enviable record at Muskingum.

It is indeed rernarkable the way freshman classes increase
in numbers, noise, and greenness, but even at that the Class of
'28 is a very fine class. NVQ became pretty well acquainted with
them last fall when they were wearing their beautiful arm bands
and "dinks" fsmall caps, if you do not happen to he collegiatej.
They took advantage of the opportunity presented hy Scrap Day
and carried off the laurel crown in all three of the events. Since
then they have become filled with the all pervasive Muskingum
spirit and have found their rightful place on Muskingum's cam-
pus where they are expected and are expecting to do great things
for themselves and for the College in the years yet to come.

l t - -r-.i The Student Council
In the third year, since its organization, the Student Council has become firmly
established as a student institution. The members ot' this Council are representative
students wl1o attempt to carry on the best interests of the school at large and their
respective classes. '
The entire student body is given an opportunity to express any ideas or to discuss
any problems in an Open Forum which is held every two weeks under the direction of
the President of the Council.
In addition to considering the problems presented in Open Forum, some of the
chiel' duties of the Council are to foster the preservation ol' school traditions, to en-
courage student activities, and to take complete charge of the Student Chest.
This is the first year that the Student Chest has had a trial in Muskingum. lly the
present plan of operation, a quota is set for the amount of money which will be needed
by the Y. M., Y. W., Student Honor Council, "M" Club, "A" Association, and similar
organizations. A contingent fund is allowed which is to take care of all other cam-
paigns which would otherwise be made. The campaign is conducted early in the
school year. 'l'he idea of the whole plan is "to give once, but enough for all."
The members of this year's Council are:
james Leitch, lfresidentg George McCormick, Ruth johnson, I-lelen llurns, Freda
McMillen. - .
Walter Smith, Vice President: William Finley, Secretary-Treasurer5 Catharine
Irma jones, Cuylcr Ferguson.
Student Honor Council
The high type of character of Muskingum students has fostered the development
of an Honor System. The majority of colleges and universities rarely attempt to pro-
mote such a system. Many have tried but failed in the maintenance of it.
The students of Muskingum College voluntarily initiated and assumed the regula-
tion of the Honor System. lts enforcement rests with them. Since it is based on the
assumption that all the students are honorable, violations of honor must be recognized
as such. Only by the acceptance of individual responsibility for the welfare of the
group can the system be a reality. When this condition exists, there is in operation
a positive character building force whose object is the development and maintenance of
a spirit of honor in all the life of the college.
In applying the Honor System to written examinations, formal themes, and notc-
books, each student must make such work valid by signing a pledge to the effect that
he has neither given or received aid on it.
Of the ten members of the governing organization, which is known as tl1e Student
Honor Council, eight are members by virtue of office already held, the remaining two
being representatives of the Itmior and Senior classes.
The members of the 1924-25 Student 'Honor Council are: James l.eitch, 'Herbert
Schulze, Margaret Hutchison, Blair Hastings, Kenneth Miller, Gwendolyn Rusk, john
Smith, Pi-esidentg Janet Nesbitt, Margaret Carmen, and Alice Mcliibben.
The B. and Nl. Board of Control
This is the representative governing board of the student publication, the lilaek and
Magenta. lt is composed of two faculty members and of one representative from each
class. lts membersltip this year includes Miss Sharp, Dr. Kelsey, Milton Irwin, Mildred
Meanor, Harry Crytzer, and ,lohn l.ondon. lt is the duty of this organization to control
the general policy of the ll. and M. lt elects tthe editor and business manager and
acts on the suggestions ol these officers as to the other members of the stafT. lt can
remove any member of the stall' at any time. At its regular meetings the editor is
present and hears valuable discussions, suggestions, and criticisms for the betterment
ot' the student publication. The student members ot' the board are elected by a gen-
eral eleetion in each class.
Y. W. C. A. Cabinet
Young Women's Christian Association
The purpose of the Young Women's Christian Association of Muskingum College
is to draw all into a closer unity with Christ, so that, in the phrasing of the national
objective, it may truly be said that "We unite in the determination to live unreservedly
Jesus' law of love in every relationship and so to know God."
At the regular weekly meetings, topics of universal interest are discussed. The
discussion group method of Bible study has been used this year, special leaders having
Under the Y. W. C. A., a Girl Reserve Club has been organized among the girls
of the seventh and eighth grades of the New Concord public schools. Other depart-
ments care for the social affairs of the college and, through the "big sister" movement
and the Freshman Commission, for the freshman girls in particular. By the "big sister"
plan, each new girl has, throughout her first year on the campus, the particular atten-
tion of some upper class girl. Also the freshman girls are divided into groups of a size
suitable for study, recreation, and fellowship. Their leaders form the Freshman Com-
mission, which is supervised by the Y. W. C. A. Cabinet.
The Cabinet members are: Margaret Hutchison, President, Freda McMillen, Mar-
garet Leitch, Hilda Ewing, Gladys Forsythe, jane liunn, Evangeline Giffen, jean Hall,
Mary Johnson, Ruth E. Johnson, Mary McConagha, Mildred Meanor, janet Nesbitt,
Kathryn Ogilvic, and Miss Steele.
Y. M. C. A. Cabinet
THE Y. M. C. A.
The Y. M. C. A. at Muskingum has grown to be a tradition. Although we have
no material buildings on the Campus, the true spirit of the Y is clearly felt, and it
is this spirit, we feel that can produce the most lasting results in the lives of those
who have been influenced by this organization while in school.
The Association is organized to take care of all phases of Christian work on the
campus. This service, or "respectful ministrant goodwill," as a friend of the Student
Movement has said, includes Boys' Work, Self-Help for students in need of work, Gos-
pel Team work, Bible Study and Hi-Y. Other phases of the work include the social
and devotional types of, student life. The Association with the Y. W. C. A. also fur-
nishes the-college handbook. A phase of the work which has increased in importance
in the last few months is that of Intercollegiate Relations. A need has been felt and
recently expressed for a more friendly and sympathetic relationship between advanced
schools of the country.
The devotional meeting is held on Wednesday evening of each week. These meet-
ings are a source of great inspiration to all who attend, and their success may largely be
attributed to the spirit of brotherhood and the informality which exists between mem-
bers. Surely no one can go away from a Y meeting at Muskingum, and feel that Chris-
tianity is a weak, insignificant thing. The real, red-blooded men of Muskingum will
be found at the Y meetings.
The Student Association at Muskingum exists for the purpose of "winning students
to a deliberative, unqualified allegiance to Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and to
send them out into the world, men of character, whose lives are consecrated to service."
The cabinet members are as follows: I. Kenneth Miller, John Smith, Archie
Blackwood, George McCormick, Herbert Schulze, President: Benjamin Hazen, William
Finley, Paul Montgomery, Sam Weir, Clyde Canfield, Eugene Martin, Glen Jeffers,
Walter Smith, Dean Livingston, and Donald Spencer.
In it's program of development of the four-fold of life, the Y. M. C. A. works very
definitely through the Gospel Team. In this department there is an opportunity for
Christian men to do Christian work. 'Vhe logical question "how" can be answered
A man with a desire to invigorate his spiritual nature may join with this group of
men having the same purpose. He linds the team organized directly under the Y. M.
C. A. having as its leader one of the Y. M. cabinet men selected for that work. He
finds that there are two main purposes for the effort of the teamg first, to assist in
the creating and maintaining of an active Christian atmosphere on the campus, and
second, to send men out in groups of from two to four, into neighboring or even more
distant communities, to hold religious services.
In these services the men deliver short, snappy, gospel talks and quite frequently
present some vocal or instrumental music. Where it is possible arrangements ar
made for these trips to cover a period of two or three days in which a team may special-
ize in such Helds as boys' work or special evangelistic effort.
So, in a brief summary statement, we might say that the man who is willing to
put forth the effort, backed by a real virile desire to serve his Master, hnds in the Gospel
Team an opportunity both to help and be greatly helped-to work for others and at
the same time hnd for himself some of the most valuable training in the building of
his own spiritual life.
The Student Volunteer Group
In the years to come, many Muskingum Alumni will look back with joy at the fun
and fellowship experienced on tl1e Alma Mater's campus. From ligypt, india, Sudan,
Abyssinia, and other lields will come the earnest hopes of the alumni there for Musk-
ingum's broader, more powerful future. Remembering the early messengers of Christ
in foreign countries, they will say "that they surmouuted, so thus may we," backed by
Muskingunfs ideals and traditions.
Membership in the Student Volunteer Group is limited to those who have definitely
declared their intention of entering foreign mission service. At the meetings every
Sabbath morning, problems uppermost in the lives of young missionaries, or study
books of an appropriate nature, are discussed. In this way a common bond of interest
is held among these students who are busily engaged in other activities through the
week. The Muskingum Volunteer Group was fortunate in being one of the few who
sent delegates to the International Foreign Missions Convention held in VVashington,
D. C., and it is hoped that the inspiration received there may continue to live in the
Not to be set apart for service, but to set the will of the Master apart from and
above all else is the earnest desire of each Volunteer. To accomplish "the evangcliza-
tion of the world in this generation," this desire must be kept uppermost in the lives of
the Student Volunteers. May the voices of these Volunteers be heard around the world
proclaiming the gospel of Christ-and may Muskingum never find cause to cease being
proud of her Volunteers who have "followed the gleam."

The French Club
The "Ccrcle Francais" has always been an active organization on 'lhllllSlillllIllllli1i
campus, and this year it is especially so. 'l'he membership is limited to those who have
interest and ability in learning the lfrench language. The Club is invaluable to those
students who wish to become proficient in speaking and understanding French because
of the informal practice in conversation possible there, which would not be possible in
the class room. Once a month the members leave Muskingum and spend a social
evening together in l1'rance, Nothing but "l,a langue francaise" is spoken. The formal
program consists of short talks, current events, and stories given by the students. This
program is followed by an informal social evening spent in French games, "chan-
sons," and musical selections. Refreshments are enjoyed before "Bon Nuit" is said.
A special feature of the Club's activities is the semi-annual open meetings when all
the members of the French department are invited to attend. These guests are usually
entertained with a onesact play staged by the members of the Club.
Much of the success of the "Cercle Francais" is due to the able direction of the
French instructorsg Miss Mary Sharp, Miss Ruth Shaver, and Mr. Moorchcad. The
officers of the Club this year are:
Vice .l,l'CSlllCllt--IQOQCI' Hemphill.
The Benzene Ring
The Benzene Ring is the Chemistry Club at Muskingum. lt is made up of students
who have successfully completed at least twelve hours in the Department of Chemistry
and who are interested in Chemical Science. 'l'he meetings are held on the fourth
Tuesday of each month in the Chemistry room. Chemical problcms and processes are
discussed both by the members and outside speakers. Educational motion pictures,
having relation to Chemistry, are shown and discussed. The club carries on a corres-
pondence with Chemistry Clubs at other colleges and exchanges ideas and information.
Organized last year we have already grown to be one of the largest scliolartic
clubs on the campus and we expect to keep on growing in the future as we have in

Home Economics Club
The Home Economics Club is a club of recent organization. It was organized last
year under thc auspices of the Home Economics lbepartment.
This club is composed of students of the Home Economics Department. Any girl
having work in Home Economies is eligible to membership.
The purpose is to promote interest in the department. At the monthly meetings
topics of general interest are discussed and one particular phase of l-Tome Economics
is presented and explained. A part of each meeting is given over to the social com-
mittee who make it possible for all the girls to meet each other and become acquainted.
In addition to this a tea is given at the opening: ol the school year for the new girls of

The First junior l'lay given by the class of l925 was "Icebound" by Owen Davis.
This play won the Pulitzer prize for 1923, lt pictures a story of New England rural
life in all its reality and charm.
Much of the plot centers around Ben jordan, a young fellow who has left home
mainly because of the hardships so common to New England rural life. After having
been away for some time Ben returns, at ,lane's request, to his mother's funeral.
Then, through a series of dramatic incidents, he falls in love with Jane, who has been
helping him keep the old home farm from falling into ruins.
The plot unfolds itself in a very realistic, yet interesting' and dramatic manner.
The same east which presented the play to the home audience also produced it
at the Weller Theatre in Zanesville, Ohio, for the benfit of the Million Dollar Campaign.

The second junior play of the 1924 season was "False Gods" by Eugene Brieux.
Tl1e scene is laid i11 upper Egypt during the Middle Empire ,and the first action
takes place in tl1e first inner court of the palace of a wealthy Master, one who is
influential in the court of l,l1?l1'9.0l1. The great annual prayer to lsis, an Egyptian god,
is to be given soon. A young priest, Satni, who has been away from l1is native country
for so111e time, returns to Egypt and declares tl1e gods of Egypt are false. He is in
love with a beautiful Egyptian princess, Y2lOl,1I112l., but their religious differences separate
them for a time. p
At length Satni succeeds in overthrowing the superstitious of the people to some
extent and in convincing Yaouina that the gods of Egypt really were false. Thus the
people who worship lsis are led to see tl1e true God.

The Importance of Being Earnest
A clever, witty, trivial comedy was the first senior play, "The Importance of Being
Earnest." The delicate satire which Oscar Wilde put into this play and which is its
strong point of appeal was brought out effectively by a strong cast, ably coached by
Mr. Thomas C. Pollock.
The two characters about whom the play centers were ably portrayed by Martin
Gifferi and William Shane. Mr. Giifen in the dual personality of jack VVorthing left
nothing to be desired. He was at once the man of the World and the strict guardian.
Shane did very well as the aristocratic and altogether exasperating Algernon Moncrieff.
Margaret Carman as Gwendoline and Aileen Foote as Cecily were the young ladies
who succeeded in entrapping these sophisticated gentlemen. The superficial aristocracy
and overbearing manner of Lady Bracknell as acted by Olive Hutton predominated
every scene in which she was present. Ruth Trimble took the part of Miss Prism,
Cecily's tutor. Her scenes with Dwight Gray, as Dr. Chasuble, were amusing in a
different yet interesting way. Mr. Gray created a character whom the audience will
remember. Lane, the typical English butler, was Well acted by Andrew Brudcr. And
in like manner Betty McMasters as the maid was essential in tl1e third act. The me-
chanical perfection of the play was a tribute to the hard work of the cast and the
persistent efforts of the coach.
What Every Woman Knows
The second senior class play, Iaines M. l5arrie's "What Every Woman Knows,"
was charlningly presented by a very brilliant cast. The success of this play is a
decided credit to the coaching ability of Misses Virginia Gibbon and Mildred lieboch,
and to the earnest and consistent etlorts of the cast. The part of John Shand, the
proud, egotistical, ambitious, pitiably uniinaginative Scotsman was played by john
Smith with some fairly good acting-. ',l'he uncharming Maggie, delightfully portrayed
by Alice Montgomery, was in reality too charming for the role. Aliek Wylie, Maggie's
'father, was admirably taken by Clarence l.inard, james and David, Maggie's brothers,
were done by 'Will '.l.ill01ll1JSOl1 and Herbert Schulze. Ruth Heagen presented with
real art the experienced French lady of ailairs, Countess de la Briere. The charming
niece of the Countess, Lady Sybil Tendcrden, was interpreted by Helen Miller. The
cultured, polished, bland, and experienced .llritish diplomat, Charles Venables, was
done by George Caldwell. Ann .Fraser played the double roll ol maid in the Shand
household and servant of Countess de la Briere. C
Le Monde Ou L'on S'ennuie
The French Play has become an annual event at Muskingum and one that is
much looked forward to by many of the students. Miss Sharp has proven her ability
as a play coach in past years, and this year she had Miss Shaver to help her. The
result was a production which unquestionably surpassed all previous attempts along that
line. The play which was given was Edouard l.'ai1leron's .LE MONDE OU IJON
S'ENNUIli, a three-act comedy depicting thc modern combination of political and
social life of France, with a charming love story woven into the plot. The cast was
well chosen and each one played his part wellg some had had previous experience in
Frency play production and did exceptionally good work, while even the inexperienced
acted their roles like veterans.

Under the, direction of Professor and Mrs. Charles Rush Layton,
oratory has become the most outstanding department of the college.
Since it is known that if a man or woman is to succeed in the life of the
present age he must be able to say what he has to say in a direct, concise,
forceful, convincing manner, no expense or effort or money has been
spared in making the department of oratory modern enough to meet
the needs of the present generation. Of course there are students who
take no more than the introductory course of public speaking-g but the
real achievements in this department are produced by the students who
take advanced courses.
The advanced courses that achieve the largest success are debate
and interpretive reading. In connection with this department is the
college orator who represents the school in the State Intercollegiate
Gratorieal Contest. This and debate are by far the leading branches of
this department. In the spring of each year the debate team is chosen.
The men who have made the positions of speaker do not have to com-
pete for their places on tl1e squad. The remainder of the ten positions
of the squad are filled by men who are chosen from this try out, being
the men who rank highest in the estimation of the judges. For live
months of the next school year, these men work incessantly on the
question that is chosen when the various debate coaches meet to decide
upon thc question for the coming year. Over a thousand letters are
annually sent out by the debate team in obtaining material on the ques-
tion that is to be debated.
The debate team this year made a record that will remain unsur-
passed for years to come. The squad participated in eight debates and
came through with a clean slate. The negative team is the only team
in tl1e state that defeated all affirmative teams met. In making this
record the debate team has won the state championship three conse-
cutive years, the last two years without a defeat. However, the squad
will lose three speakers by graduation. This will give the new men
who will make the team this year an excellent opportunity to show
their wares. It is hoped by the department that next year's squad will
be one of the strongest in the history of debate at Muskingum.
Afhrmatlve Debate Team
The question for the inter-collegiate debates this year was, Resolved: That the
United States and Canada should jointly construct a deep sea waterway along the
St. Lawrence River. It is an excellent commentary on Muskingum's debate methods
that she can turn out teams that win consistently both sides of the question. Every
debate was won and Muskingum was declared to be the champion of the Ohio Debate
Association and was awarded the silver loving cup, which Muskingum will be allowed
to retain permanently if she has another championship season next year.
The Affirmative Team won debates with Marietta, Akron, Bluffton, and Otterbein.
Lewis R. Brown, the first affirmative speaker, gave a splendid introduction and
analysis of the question. His use of the "affirmative Bible" Clnternational Joint Com-
mission Reportj in analysis and his ability to convince the judges of its importance was
a regarkable piece of debating. This was Brown's second year as first affirmative
William Finley, the second speaker, made an excellent record in his first year as
a speaker and could always be depended upon for an effective rebuttal.
John C. Smith, the third speaker and captain of the team, was a debater of the first
order and became justly famous for his excellent rebuttal at the beginning of his main
speech. This rebuttal, was considered by every judge as the best part of every debate
in which Smith took part. His Hnal rebuttal always snapped. The graduation of
Brown and Smith will be a distinct loss to the debate teams.
The work of Benjamin Hazen and Harold Finney, HS 2llCrnates, was highly com-
mendable and effective.
Negative Debate Team
1 This was the only negative team in Ohio debating this question that won all of
its debates. It won debates with Marietta, Baldwin-Wallace, Wittenberg, and Ohio
Northern. ' -
Harry Crytzer, first negative speaker, was distinguished by his conversational tone
and careful analysis. This was his first year on the squad.
Robert Secrest, second speaker, was a forceful and convincing dcbater. He was
especially distinguished by his climactic style. Bob's second year was even more bril-
liant than last year.
James K. Leitch, third speaker and captain of the team, was probably one of the
most brilliant forensic platform men in the state. His ability in rebuttal was almost
uncannyg in the Baldwin-Wallace debate he used in rebuttal 10 minutes of the 12 min-
utes allowed for his constructive speech. . .
While the alternates never receive much publ1c1ty, the work of William Nichol
and Melton Boyd was indispensable to the success of the team. .
To the Forensic Club more than to any other organization around Muskingum
is due the marked success of the men who represent the college in the realm of oral
expression. This club was organized three years ago in order to stimulate and promote
interest in public speaking. lf acccomplishes its purpose in a unique coordination
of social and curricular activity. Combining thus the advantage of two important fields,
it has already earned for itself a reputation which makes it one of the best known or-
ganizations on the campus.
The privilege of membership is gained through participation in one ycar's work on
the varsity debate squad, or by winning tl1c position of college orator, after which the
applicant is Finally passed upon by thc members on the basis ol' his efforts and ability.
Honorary membership may be made at the discretion of the club by being or having
been a debating coach at Muskingum, or by having been a former debater or orator.
The emblem ol' the organization is a small triangular gold key which is given by
the college to any one having had a year's experience on the varsity debating squad
and who meets the requirements ol the club. ln a small way this compensates for the
vast amount of effort expended for the purpose of forensic achievement.
The roll for this year includes:
WILLIAM MARTIN GIFFEN
Cast .In The Mold
From the maze and turmoil of our modern life there comes, insistent as the cry
of the starving, the age-old call for Men. Every field of lmman activity is demanding
leaders. The field of education needs clear-headed teachersg tl1e business arena calls
for men of strong principle, the religious world wants spiritual leaders: the voice of
the people cries out for wise statesmen. As never before we hear this appealing, impera-
tive, insistent demand for Men. A demand so insistent that it becomes alarming,
-alarming bcause its appeal goes unmet. We are faced by tl1e fact that in no depart-
ment of the world's work is there adequate leadership.
Why are we lacking leaders? Why is it that the Men cannot be found? Are we
not spending enough money for the training ot' Youth? Last year we spent some two
billion dollars in educating the young men of America. Are there no leaders, then,
because we do not give enough time or energy to the training of Youth? There has
never been a period in the history of the world when such a vast amount of time and
energy has been given over to the educating of the young. No, leaders are not
lacking because insufficient time, money, or effort are being expended for the
training of Youth. Why, then, is the demand for those leaders not met? Undoubtedly
part of the fault lies with the home and the public schools. But the fundamental reason
leaders are lacking is, 1 believe, that the greatest of society's schools for training Men
is evading its duty. -The American College is not developing Men!
If I mistake not there are three essentials of manhood which the colleges are far
too often failing to instill into their students. ',l.'he hrst essential lacking is the ability
to see things as they arc, the second, is the power to understand the value of knowledge:
and the third, is the capacity to appreciate the spiritual-the beautiful-in life.
The newsboy of our city streets often understands the nature of the world better
than the college graduate. The newsboy appreciates tl1e sordid facts of human greed
and selfishness. The College tends rather to protect Youth from the sterner realities
of life. The student is not shown in what respects the Church, the government, or the
economic system is wrongg--he is only taught the amazing rightness of things as they
now are. The outworn idea that Youth should not be taught the sterner facts of
life seems to be held not only in the public schools but in the colleges as well. Not
only are the facts not taught but often the pursuit of truth is discouraged. The pro-
fessor dares not tell all he knows or thinks about Congress, or evolution, or the United
States Steel Corporation. As Henry Adams expressed it, the "professor has to shut
his eyes and hold his tongue as though he were a priest." In the case of the student it
is extremely difficult to be a disciple of factsg not only because he has never been taught
to see things as they are, but often because he fears that if he speaks out his beliefs,
he will either invoke the ill-will of his professor, or be summarily dismissed from
college. If the student is not taught at sometime to see things as they are, without
being bound by authority or tradition, he cannot develop into that type of fearless man-
hood whicl1 the World so urgently needs. The colleges are not teaching their students
to see things as they are, and yet some folks wonder why our institutions are not
Furthermore, the American College is not developing Men as it should because it
is not teaching Youth the value of knowledge. We should expect a college graduate
to be particularly open-minded and tolerant. The opposite is too often true. There are
few who cling more tenaciously to their prejudices, customs, and beliefs than the
average college man. lf you attack his pet theories, he blindly Hies to their rescue
If you wish to tell him of a new idea, he is willing to concede beforehand that it is
worthless. This attitude cannot be blamed altogether upon the student. The College
is at fault in that it too often trains the student to support prejudices, customs, and out-
grown ideals, instead of to use his reason in maintaining an open mind. But even if the
College taught the student to maintain an open mind it would not have taught him the
value of his knowledge, had it not also taught him to discriminate between the essential
and the trivial. The College does not teach the student to discriminate. No guiding
hand points out what things are vital and what studies are essential. All courses are
placed befo1'e the student as if they were of equal value, and he is left to g-rope his own
way out of the endless labyrinth of courses which constitute the curriculum. His mind
is then crammed with a heterogeneous mass of half-truths unrelated to life, which often
stifle in even the most earnest student the desire for learning. The sensitive and be-
wildered student asks, "Why learn anything when there seems to he nothing 1'eally
worth while to learn? lf older generations have found no essential truths which are
worthy of thorough study, but can only present a compiliation of untenablc dogmas and
confiicting half-truths, is learning worth while?" When the College does not teach dis-
crimination between the essential and the trivial, is it any wonder that Youth resist-
ingly questions, "Why study when I can hope to learn so little that is worth while?"
But suppose that Youth were trained to see the facts of life and were taught the
value of knowledge, would these objectives be enough for the College to achieve?
Certainly it could justify its existence much more easily if it really accomplished
these two things. But there is something else, so desirable that it is essential, which
is interwoven with the other two. It is: an appreciation of the spiritual-the beautiful
-in life. The truly intelligent man is able to see things as they are, and he under-
stands the value of knowledge, but he has also a heart which beats for all mankind.
The College is not training the heart of the student by teaching him to enjoy the beau-
tiful in the fields of art, literature, and religion. To a very small minority some appre-
ciation may come, but to tl1e vast majority of college students and graduates, the beau-
tiful is synonymous with the worthless. And yet we wonder why our colleges are not
But why--why-why? Why is the College not teaching Youth the value of knowl-
edge? Why is the College not teaching Youth to appreciate the beautiful? Why is the
College not developing Men? Certainly these questions are most pertinent. And the
answer is striking: the College is not developing Men because it is too thoroughly oc-
cupied with teaching Youth how to make a living. The College has "fallen for the
practical." It is being crushed under the steam roller of our Mechanistic Age. The
College does not develop personality and individuality by leading out of each student
the best there is in him. The attempt is rather to turn out embryo teachers, preachers,
business men, writers, or house keepers. There is trained a uniform product which will
work smoothly as a cog in our Industrial Machine. The young life is treated like lead
which is poured into a mold and left to harden. It is forgotten that young life is like
clay which the potter must handle according to its peculiar fitness and qualities. The
industrial cry of "specialization" has now become the slogan of our colleges. The
student is poured into one special mold to make him a teacher, into another 1110111 to
make him a business man. And the product of the mold is a cold, colorless, processed
being with little personality, or initiative for leadership. As Sir William Orpen, the
great English student of personality, says, "It is not a coincidence that you find in
one profession hundreds of faces that look as though they had been turned out of the
same mold." It seems obvious that the College is not developing Men because it is
too much occupied with molding business men, teachers, and similar types.
The world needs as leaders intelligent Men who can see things as they are, wise
men who understand the value of their knowleclgeg and unseltish men with sympathetic
hearts. The College has not been developing such Men because its eyes have been
blinded by a mercenary vision of the practical. When the College is not developing
such men, is the outlook for the future bright? May we hope for the alleviation of our
social ills? May we expect falsehood and graft to be stamped in their true colors?
May we expect true progress in our national life? Each individual can answer for
himself alone. But if you feel that our colleges are not training Youth as thev should,
if you feel that the product of our colleges could be greatly improved, if you feel that
the American College is not developing Men,-it is not enough to criticize, nor is it
enough to resign in the face of fate. There is rather a challenge to actiong-a chal-
lenge to demand of our colleges that they cast aside the grossly materialistic spirit
which now permeates them, and substitute in its place that spirit which is distinctly
cultural. What is the cultural spirit? The cultural spirit is that spirit which places
true greatness of the mind and soul above mental tricks or physical prowess, that
spirit which desires knowledge,,and is filled with a passion for using it in the best
possible wayg that spirit which desires to make "reason and the will of God prevail",
that spirit which will demand that Youth be taught the essentials of manhood rather
than it be cast in the mold of industrialism. When the cultural spirit is thorouhgly in-
stilled into our colleges, these institutions will be able to do their full part in developing
Men. And thus it is your task and mine to demand of our colleges that they cast
aside the materialistic mold and foster in its place the spirit of true culture. Let us
cry with Wordsworth:
"The world is too much with usg late and soon,
Getting and spending we lay waste our powersg
Little we see in nature that is ours,
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This sea that bares her bosom to the moon,
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping Howersg
For this, for everything we are out of tune,
It moves us not.-Great God! l'd rather be
A pagan suckled in a creed outworn, '
So might I standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorng
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea,
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn."
It wouldibe presumptuous indeed, for me to attempt to lay down a detailed program
for the College of Culture, when this problem is now being attacked by men far more
capable than I, but we-you and I-have the opportunity to do our part by helping to
form a public opinion which will demand the fostering in our colleges of the truly

Tau Kappa Alpha
The Ohio Alpha chapter ot' the 'l'au Kappa Alpha, the national honorary fraternity
in oratory and debate, was organized at Muskingum in 1911. Membership in it is the
recognition of the highest attainments along' forscnie lines. '.l'he so-called mechanical
requirements for menibership are two years as a debate speaker, two years as debate
alternate and one as speaker, or one year as college orator. Four new men were
initiated into the Tau Kappa Alpha this year, they are Lewis lirown, Robert Seerest,
john Smith, and James K, l,eiteh. Brown has been an alternate one year and speaker
two years on the debate squad. Seerest and Smith have been debate speakers two
yars, Seerest is still but a junior. Leitch has been an alternate o11e year and speaker
two years. These men are certainly deserving of this recognition as they have ren-
dered remarkable serviee to Muskingum in inter-collegiate debate. Probably no col-

Bible Reading Contest
Mr. I, Riddle Weaver of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, has established at Muskingum,
in memory of his wife and daughter, certain prizes for ability in Bible reading. This
contest is held usually in April of each year and much interest is showng ten contest-
ants are chosen in the preliminary and three prizes are offered. The ability to read
the Bible effectively and well is an art that few possess but at the same time it is an
accomplishment of the very highest order and one thru which its possessor may render
a valuable service.
The Declamation Contest
The declamation contest is another worthwhile contest in public speaking that
offers prizes to the winning contestants. There are eight contestants in the final and
three receive prizes. Selections are chosen, memorized, and given, 1m1ch keen rivalry
and effective speaking is brought out in this most interesting contest.
The Brown Oratorical Contest
Mr. James M. Brown of Wheeling, West Virginia, has established a fund from
which S60 in prizes is distributed each year, for ability in oratory. For these prizes
there are eight contestants in the hnal contest, four boys and four girlsg two prizes are
given each to the boys and girls, S20 and S10 for the two ranked first and second.
Original orations are worked up and presented. Interest in oratory is greatly stimu-
lated by this contest and an opportunity to take part in it is a thing eagerly desired
by every student. The contest is usually held during Commencement week but in l924
it was held earlier. M1'. Wayne Furman ranked lirst among the boys, and james l.eitch
and Paul, Eakin tied for second place, Bessie Armstrong ranked hrst among tl1e girls
and Mildred Galloway took second place.
"The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved by concord to sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, strategems, and spoils,
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections clark as Erebusg
Let no such man be trusted:-Mark thc music."
When a student is able to enjoy good music he has made an avenue
to happiness. Even when he must depend on a chosen few for its
expression, an appreciation of music is a source of inspiration.
Music at Muskingum is becoming more important yearly. This
year tl1e conservatory l1as the largest enrollment in its history. The
number of conservatory practice rooms has been doubled to meet the
needs of this ever growing department of the college.
The Opportunities for hearing good music at Muskingum are nu-
merous. This year we were especially favored in having Harold Berk-
ley, violinist, open our Artists' Series. Mr. Berkley was unusual, showing
by technique and interpretation his power as an artist of high rank.
Mr. Jerome Swinford, baritone, and Professor Lawrence Erb, organist,
gave the programs for the other two numbers in the Artists Series, and
were greatly appreciated by the audiences. The college Lecture Course
secured a musician of note, in the person of Miss Cecil Arden, mezzo
soprano, of the Metropolitan Opera Company.
The college Choral Society rendered the "Messiah" to a well filled
house in the first semester, and they are now hard at work on De
Koven's "Robin Hood" to be given in June. The concerts by the two
Glee Clubs are among the musical entertainments worthy of college
support. Student recitals are given from time to time during the year,
which gives good training to the pupil, as well as enjoyment to the
The Violin Festival of all the college events draws the largest out-
of-town patronage. The large orchestra of seventy pieces is composed
largely of conservatory students, and the programs which are given
two successive evenings in May are worthy of the highest praise.

Women's C-lee Club
The Women's Glee Club is an organization of thirty singers selected from the col-
lege and conservatory. This year the Club is doing excellent work under the direction
of 1:'rofessor Lathrop. He is teaching the Club the values of ensemble singing as
well as expression individually in song.
The program this year is unique and interesting. Besides a club program, including
members from Schumann, Schubert, and modern composers, we have a variety of
solos both vocal and instrumental.
Plans are being made for a trip this spring, and it is hoped that the club may
bring credit to Muskingum by its songs.
The lVlen's Glee Club
The Mcn's Glce Club, which is a member ol the Ohio Intercollegiate Glec Club
Association, has enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in the history of the
Club. Its program has met with the approval of large audiences in a number of
the near-by cities and in the home concert. .
The program is delightfully varied. The repertoire of the Club includes several
of the classical masterpieces, old English folk songs, negro spiriluals, and humorous
selections. The program is augmented by vocal, violin and Xylophone solos, quartets,
readings, a stringed quartet and an orchestra.
The Club this year has brought honor and credit to lvlnskingum.
College Quartette: Giffen, Anderson, Martin., Sawhill

I The Choral Society
The Choral Society has had a large number of new voices this year in comparsion
with tl1ose who have sung in it before. The society has a new director in the person
of Professor L. G. Lathrop, the new director of the Conservatory of Music, as well
as a new accompanist, Mrs, Stone. Robert McQuoid is President of the organization.
The first concert was the fifth annual presentation of "The Messiah," December
ll, 1924. This oratorio never fails to draw a large crowd in New Concord, and is more
appreciated each year that it is given. The soloists for the occasion were-Mrs. June
Elson Kunkle of Columbus, Sopranog Miss Ruth Hcizer of Chicago, Contraltog Mr.
Will Rhodes of Pittsburgh, Tenorg Mr. Herbert Eagleson of Columbus, Bass.
For the second concert of the year a new feature at Muskingum will be attempted.
The opera, "Robin Hood," will be given the night before Commencement. The lead-
ing parts will be sting by students of the Conservatory.
These productions by the Choral Society are the result of much hard work 011 the
part of both the director and the members. Rehearsals are held every Monday eve-
ning from 6:30 until 8:00. The concerts are very commendable work and deserve the
hearty support of the student body and the townspeople. They tend to foster an
appreciation of the better class of music.
In the opinion of many, this year's Band is the best that Muskingum has ever had,
for there is a larger number of instruments, a better distribution of them and an increase
in the personnel. Support given by some of the men in the village, tl1e interest taken
in the Band by the students, and the admirable work of tl1e leader have contributed
largely to the success. The student interest was shown in two very definite ways.
Last spring the students made provision that the Band should have new uniforms.
On the gala occasion of Home-Coming Day the Band IT1C1HlJC1'S burst forth in all their
glory with black military caps and black capcs lined with the college colors. Then,
before tl1e football game with Wittenberg the Rooter's club raised the money to send
the Band to the Wittenberg game. This was in keeping with the custom practiced
by various colleges of sending their Bands to games away from home.
The stirring strains of the Band music have been heard at every home football
and basketball game during the school year. The Band has regular practice twice a
week and plays at various all-college affairs. T11e college feels that the Band is a
valuable extra-curricular organization, for the Bandmen themselves are benefited by
their regular practice and the student body appreciate their performances.
The Tenth Annual Violin Festival
In May of every year the music students of Prof. William Wishart Gray, together
with others, present what is known as the Violin Festival. It is in fact a symphony
orchestra of 70 to 80 capable musicians who interpret for us in two concerts on suc-
cessive evenings the classic compositions of the great masters. The concerts are looked
forward to with interest by hundreds of people in southeastern Ohio. Prof. W. W.
Gray has brought fame to himself, to his students, and to Muskingum, by these de-
lightful concerts. The type of music rendered is indicated by the programs of the
concerts given in 1924. They are as follows:

The Black and Magenta
This is a weekly publication published by and for the students of
Muskingum College. Its policy this year has been to get news. John
Smith announced his slogan at the beginning of the year, "News," and
the policy must have been a good one, for the B. and M. has had an
unusually successful year. However, it has published not only news, but
also articles of all literary types. It gives students an excellent oppor-
tunity to develop their journalistic talent and is the medium for the
expression of student opinion. The staff that has done the work this

Faculty Athletic Committee
Athletic Status and Prospectus
The condition of athletics in Muskingum College at present is satisfactory. A spirit of
harmony and good will is evident among members of the coaching staff. Our athletic teams
have shown themselves worthy opponents in every respect. They are composed of real
Muskingum students who have at heart the interests of the college in all its aspects. Since
they are real representatives of the student body they receive the support of the school
as a whole, whether the game is won or lost. There has bee11 manifest by the student body
this year a healthy, enthusiastic support of the teams: this constitutes a wholesome, unifying
force for the school. The football team has completed a good season and the basketball
team is developing in a satisfactory way. Already plans are well under way for the devel-
opment of spring athletics in baseball, track, and tennis.
Our athletic stall has been greatly strengthened this year by the addition of one of the
alumni of the college. Mr. Charles Morehead is filling the position of graduate manager
of athletics, in addition to teachting a considerable schedule of work in the modern lau-
guage department. The football stadium is completed and the grass was well started
before Winter. The foundations of the running tra-ek are laid and the linishing touches
of the surface will be applied before spring. Four of the seven sections of concrete seats
are completed and everything is -in readiness for the completion of the others with the
opening of spring. The state district tournament of class A high school basketball teams
is to be held in the college gymnasium in February. The college appreciates this oppor-
ttmity of contact with the larger high schools of this'part of the state. It seems now proh-
able that the county class li high school basketball tournament' wtill be held in the Musk-
'Plans are under way for a better systematizing of the physical education of the
Whole student body. The required phvsical education for freshmen and sophomores
is being more carefully organized and supervised. College letters on sweaters are
being offered to the women of the eollge who attain distinction in various intra-mural
sports: the awards are made on a basis of points. Also large numbers of the students
are participating in a basketball tournament on intra-mural teams organized to repre-
sent the college classes and the boarding clubs. Our main concern at present is the
provision for adequate indoor floor space to take care of this developing program.
VVe urge on the part of alumni and friends of the college an interest in this enlarging
programme of athletics and physical education on the part of the college.

The Stadium Under Construction
-. .i - ,,.- 1 - '
The Finished Stadium
For a number of years a college stadium has bee11 tl1e dream of everyone connected
with Muskingum College. Dr. Montgomery and "Cam" McConagha, the efficient college
engineer, have had this idea in the back of their heads along with many other dreams
we are beginning to see as realities. At first a lOCZlflO11 was chosen below the lake and
driv-eway, and on the last "birdseyc" view prepared it is thus indicated. The location was
changed, however, from below the lake to the upper end of the lake, behind t11e "desert"
and nearer the heart of the campus-a location that is the admiration and tl1e surprise of
every visitor. The Stadium ris changing now from a dream to a reality and will shortly
To build the Stadium called for careful planning and the raising of much money. A
campaign was launched in connection with the Million Dollar Fund, placing the Stadium
as the goal for the college subscrtibers.
As result of the three days' whirlwind campaign, the Faculty showed 68 subscribers
and t11e amount 2lS11,655g the four college classes 654 subscribers, the amount EfS.i9,555.50, the
Academy 156 subscribers, the amount 554729. During the Summer School a campaign was
put on and 409 Summer School Students subscribed 1iS5,333, making a total subscription of
359,272.50 by the Faculty andstudents toward the Stadium. A group of business men of
the town to the number of 50 showed their interest by subscribing 391500, making a
total of 368,872.50
"Cam" at once got busy in the matter of purchasing machinery for the work, and as
soon as weather permitted work was begun. The Stadium when completed will certainly
have tl1e most attractive surroundings of any college stadium in this state. NVork pro-
gressed favorably throughout the summer and fall, so that the entire field wa-s drained,
graded, sowed, the track and curb put rin, and tl1e gravel base of the track layed b-efore
winter set in. .During the winter the cinders were put in the track, a-nd then, as weather
permitted, it was rolled and made ready for the Spring track meets. Seats are being in--
stalled to accomodate four thousand spectatorsg four of the concrete sections were poured
last fall, and the other tl11'ee after the weather permitted in the Spring.
The situation has been so chosen that traffic may approach it from many a-ngles and
cars may be parked in suitable proximity to the grtidiron. liecause of the surrounding 11ills
no lin1it can be placed upon the number of spectators able to View a contest from them,
The Stadium is indeed a monument to the student body of today a11d will long bear out
the quality standard of Muskingum. .

Review of the Season
Muskingum had a very light team this year, the average weight being 145 pounds. 'llns
fact may or may not account for the team's being able to hold all but one of their opponents
scoreless during the first half of eacl1 game only to be scored on and beaten in the latter part
of the game. 'lille team got the jump on Hiranl and were able to beat them by a large
score altho Hiram didn't give up until the whistle blew. The hardest game play-ed was
against hlVliLtC1llJCl'g and Muskingum showed up very well again that team-one ol' the
strongest teams in the Conference--holding them to a scoreless tie rin the first half. How-
ever the climax of the season was the Homecoming game. There was a large number of
alumni back and the winning of a hard fought game with Ifleidelberg gave the setting to a
very successful day of celebration.
Next year's team is practicing this spr-ing and will be ready to start in on the biggest
year in football with our new stadium,

Review of the Season
Muskingum started out this year by winning two games with a good showing of ability,
hght, and determination. We beat' both l'ittsburgh Seminary and Anitoeh, which gave
us a good send-oll'. l-lowever, it is the team that keeps lighting altho they are losing
that shows real spirit. We had just such a iC2l.lll this year and altho We were beaten
by some odd freak ot' the game that looked like luck the team never gave up.
St. Xavier was scheduled to play here hut the game was postponed and finally can-
The last two home games were games to he remembered. They were games at which
one holds his breath for the last few seconds until the gun cracks and the crowd doesn't
move for a few minutes after everything is over.
Wzlltel' Montgomery was high point man for the season and deserves a great deal of
credit and praise for his work this year. VVC lose three letter men from this year's team:
Hastings, P. Montgomery, and McCormick. In spite of this fact the outlook is very bright
for tl1e coming year.

Review of the Season
Baseball is a sport requiring speed, skill, and brain work. That is the reason we play
it at Muskingum. There were several thrilling contests this year, among the best was the
one with Capital which resulted in the lowest score of the season, l-0, and the Hiram game
which we won in the tenth inning, 6-5. These two games were the high points of the
season and partly explain why our fighting team came out with a percentage of .500 in the
Conference. The highest score was made against Kenyon, 24-26. Muskingum and her op-
ponents were just tied in total scores. The classof '24 took two of the best players Musk-
ingum has ever hadg we are very sorry to lose Hal and Rex. However Muskingum fights
to the finish and there is a freshman class to draw from that will fill up the ranks.

Review of the Season
Tennis is a minor sport at Muskingum, but we spell it with a large "T" for it was
the only sport in which the team had the honor of receiving the gold iusigniia for winning
the championship. Our tea-m went thru a hard schedule this year without losing a match,
which speaks well for the ability and light of every member of that team.
Dennison managed to tie us on their own courts which was the nearest we came to
bninging back the short end of the score. Wfooster, also, threw a scare into our camp
when 'the score wa-s a tie at thc end of the singles sets, however we managed to win
both doubles sets thus winning the match.

Review of the Season
Track is a renewed sport at Muskingum, this yea1"s team was the first one since 1907.
We were handicapped this year by ha-ving no place to practice inside, so the team did not
get started until the first of March. However the members made up part of that handicap
with hard work, and, altho we lost all our meets, we can consider the season a success
in some respects.
We took part in three meets, including the Ohio Relays at Columbus. At the Ohio Re-
lays we made 18 points, taking first in the two-mile relay, second in both the medley and
mile relays, and third in the sprint relays, also Atha took fourth in the hop, skip, and jump,
which Hubberd of Michigan won.
The other two meets were with Kenyon and Otterbein, both of which were strong
contestants. Kenyon beat us by a score of 76-50 and Otterbein by a- score of 92-39.
All things worth while have to have a beginning and track has made its beginning and
has stood the test.

Freshmen Athletic Prospects
The freshmen have a pcppy class and big things are expected of their
representatives in athletics. VVith a football team that stacked up well
against the varsity they should have a number of men who will strengthen
the team for next year. Such men as Shane, Beavon, Logan, Harrop, Glen
and Reid Clark, Taylor, Red Orr, Weed, Sley, and Selby who played last
year for the fun of playing will add a large amount of strength to the team
especially since they will be playing for the fun of pla-ying plus th-e spirit
of Muskingum back of them.
The basketball team, however, is the strong point of the freshman class.
They won the class championship a11d often beat the varsity, which is a very
good record. Men like Taylor, Har1'op, Todd, Red Orr, J. Orr, Wilson,
Giffen, Bain, Weed, Bradbury, and Glen Clark, will, with this yea1"s varsity,
make np a squad that will be hard to beat. All of these men know basket-
ball, as they have played -in their respective high schools, so they will not
need to take a lot of time in learning the game, but can step into tl1e ard-
vanced training for perfection and team work which go to make up a win-
Besidcs these football and basketball men there are a- number of base-
ball and track men who will have a chance to show their ability this spring.
Taking everythiing into account we can see that the freshman cla-ss will add
greatly to Muskingum's athletics, and the future is very bright. Freshmen!
We are counting on for big things.

A THLE TICS
Miss Viiola S. Welsh of Pittsburgh, Pa., Director of Physical Education for VVomen,
is in large measure the one to whom all tl1e credit can be given for a systematic reorganiza-
tion of girls' athletics at Muskingum this year. When Miss Welsli came, the department
ot' athletics for girls, while it had been well organized the prevfious year, was very prone
to fall back into the state it was in some two or three years ago, unless directed by a skill-
ful hand. And here was a skillful hand. She has made her gynmasium classes popular,
organizing besides the regular courses, an aesthetic dancing class which is open to all who
wish to join it, sl1e has carried thc four college classes through a successful season of hockey
and basketball, and is now laying extensive plans for a spring program which shall include
volleyball, track, tennis, and May Day. Under Miss XfVelsh's superviision, the M. C. Club
was organized and made a recognized school of activity.
It is Miss VVelsh's personality and interest in l1er work as well as her ability that have
caused both her and her department's popularity. This is her first year at Muskingum.
She graduated last year from the University of Pittsburgh. Most of her experience in
teaching she gained from playground work, to which she has devoted her summers for
Women's Athletics i
Every year at Muskingum there is a noticeable advance made in the interest taken in
the girl's athletic department, and we predict the time when even a large, modernly equipped
gymnasium will scarcely meet our needs.
Each girl is required to take at least two years ot physical education. These courses
include marching, calisthenics, games, apparatus work, and folk and aesthetic dancing,
In addition to the required work, advanced cla-sses are offered to upper classmen.
The M. C. Club was organized this year under the direction of Miss Welsll, Director
of Physical Education for VVomen. The members of the M. C. Club are those girls who
have earned points in any ot' the major sports, such as hockey, basketball, track, tennis,
volleyball, and hiking. The standards were raised making it necessary for a girl to earn
eight hundred points befor-e she could win her sweater and letter. The purpose of the
Club is not to bring into prominence a few girls whose ability in playing is marked, but
l'2llllCl' to stimulate an interest in athletics, which will include as many as possible of the
girls. Health and strength and regularity in practice as well as ability in playing are the
l May Day marks the culmination of gymnasium work usually. It is held as a general
thing, in the middle of May, under the direction of tl1c Instructor of Physical Education.
Muskingum "A" Association
The members ol the Muskingum Athletic Association are chosen for wide-awake :interest
in gymnasimn work, for ability in leadership, for grace, pep, and general proficiency in
physical education classes. The girls curry out their slogan ol: "l"le:tltl1 and 1-lappincssf'
by giving assistance to the instructor in physical education and proinotinpg interest in
girls' sports at Mnskingunt.

was on how cmbci 11, 1904, that the man
who was to build the present day Musk-
ingum took office as President. ORIGINAL BUILDINGS 119049
The day which marked the end of
twenty years of President Montgomery's labors for Muskingum College was
given over, by decree of the Board of Trustees and Faculty, to the celebration
of the event which the intervening years have proved was the most signifi-
cant in the college's history. The State Department of Education, the Ohio
College Association, the Board of liducation of the United Presbyterian
church, the Synod of Ohio, and other bodies, as well as trustees, alumni,
faculty a11d students were represented upon programs in the morning, after-
noon and evening. liach speaker paid tribute to the man whose courage,
vision, and unrelenting toil has made possible the Muskingum of today and has
laid the foundation for the Muskingum of the future. How well these trib-
utes were merited may best be shown by a review of the following facts.
Wlteii President Montgomery surveyed his new held of labor in 1904,
he found a college which had served well in the pioneer day of Ohio, but
which had small chance of surviving the opening years of the twentieth cen-
tury. He found two poorly equipped buildings on a two-acre lot on the hill-
side, a body of alumni with plenty of character, some education, and no
money, and a constituency consisting of a few score United Presbyterian
families scattered over the none too fertile hills of eastern Ohio. Under
President Montgomery's leadership, Muskingum has kept step with advancing
educational standards, she has increased
her material possessions many fold, and
she has attracted a student body ten
times as large as that of twenty years
ago. But this story can best be told bv
in comparative figures and no one study-
t - - W1
ing the following statistical statements
can doubt that November 11, 1924 was a
great day in the annals of the college

Bum Day is the one day of the school year when the students look
their best-or worst. If one of them looks at all natural there is some-
thing wrong with him. To look natural on Bum Day is one of the un-
written crimes of school life. Judging by appearances on Bum Day the
students may well be called bozos. shicks, flappers, hawnyalks, et cetera,
and so forth.
Bum Day is really not the correct name for this festival of costuming.
The day was originally meant to be a day when the students would try
their best to look the part of bumsg but of late years costuming has been
introduced and has become tl1e ruling force of the day. Prizes are offered
for the most original costume among the men and women respectively, and
also for the most originally dressed couple. ln fact the day is almost a
second Hallowe'eng and it could be called that but for the fact that the
contestants do not wear masks. Even at that there are times when it is
difficult to recognize the original persons when they are attired in their
To a tourist who should be passing through New Concord on Bum Day
it would appear that a bedlam of slightly mentally unbalanced humanity
had escaped from their classical confines. To see young men and women,
who are supposed to be attending school for the purpose of receiving an
education, parading around in cast-off finery of the days of yore is indeed
shattering to the most cherished conception of college life with its balloon
trousers and shingled pates. On Bum Day the privilege is extended to
everyone to cast aside the veneer of conventional attire, cease acting the
part we think we arc supposed to play in the drama of life, and for once
enjoy the freedom ol choice in the selecting of apparel. For after all, we
must have some enjoyment in life, even if we are engaged in the serious
business of absorbing an education. And Bum Day is the day that is really
enjoyed by all.
In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to what the girls
have been thinking about all winter-May Day. In connection with May
Day is the election of a May Queen. To be May Queen is the hope of every
girl in the Senior Class. But all cannot have the honorg there is but one
May Queen, so there must be but one girl chosen.
The May Day exercises are held in the Hollow adjoining the Stadium.
The natural amphitheater furnishes a fitting rustic atmosphere for the sylvan
program. The exercises are under the auspices of the Department of Phy-
sical Education for Women. Aesthetic dancing is a feature of the evening.
It is days like this that make college a place of romance and beauty instead
of a-grind of lessons and class work. We are brought back to the old con-
ceptions of spring and beauty and are given a feeling of profound content-
ment in the knowledge that once life was fantastic and playful, not filled
with the metallic atmosphere that pervades the making of dollars, which is
the highest aim of our people at this time. -
The observance of May Day and the accompanying program attracts a
large number of people from the adjacent towns of Cambridge and Zanes-
ville. In this way people become acquainted with the college and its acti-
vities. They realiize that the college is not producing merely rah rah boys
and girls, but is developing real men and women through the cultivation
of the aesthetic and cultural. May Day brings out the finer nature of thc
students and brings them in close proximity with the arts and beauties of
There are people who believe that limitiing the scrapping of the Sopho-
mores and the Freshmen to one day tends to eliminate the romanticism that
is associated with the traditional enmity of the the two classes. The spas-
modic encounters that extend throughout the school year when there is no
definite day in which the class cltiffercnccs can be settled cause petty fends,
and disintegrations among the groups of the school. Although friction be-
tween the two lower classes does tend to unite the members of the
Freshman class, the extending of this unifying influence over a year fails
to instill into the new students the idea of school spirit and cooperation.
The institution of Scrap Day near the beginning of the school year
facilitates the speedy unification of the entering class and allows the settle--
mcnt of all misunderstandings to be accomplished at the same time. The
smoldering fires of nivalry burst into flame and the one afternoon of contests
settles the quarrel for the year. No individual hazing is indulged in and
no unnecessary dangers are involved in the scrap.
This year tl1e Freshmen won the three events of Scrap Day. The events
were a tug of war, an obstacle race for the girls, and a push-hall contest
for the boys. These contests were anything but tame affairs. The tug of
war contests and the push-ball contest took more hrawn than brains. The
obstacle race is the one feature of the day that requires skill. The gtirls
practice daily for approximately a month before the teams from the classes
are chosen. Scrap Day is a hue example of how organized effort can be
substituted for the old type of hazing with remarkable success.
Home Coming Day
The annual Home Coming Day is one of the latest additions to Musk-
ingum's traditions. This is the one day of tl1e school year that alumni
can call their own. Every possible courtesy and privilege is extended to
the old grads. Special entertainments and school functions, including a float
parade, a football game, and a lJOl'l-f11'C are provided to take the cares of
the world from the minds of the students of former days.
When the old grads return they usually tell us in more or less poetic
terms about the "good 'ol days." We like to hear about the achrievements
of the past, but we don't like to feel that the days of yore were the only
days when ladies were fair and knights were bold and the old school Musk-
ingum was the best school of its size in the country. Home Coming Day
gives the alumni a chance to see that with their graduation the cherished
spirit of Musloingum friendliness, the high quality of scholastic attainments,
and the clean srprtsmanship of athletics did not vanish from the campus.
They see that we, the present generations, are still carrying on.
Home Coming Day is o11e of the never-to-he forgotten days of school
life. It is thc one day of the school year that brings together the present
day student grad of yesterday. Together they join in singing prauise to kind
olcl Muskingum. And as the shadows gather, and the niight enfolds the
hills of the campus in beauty and silence, there comes to every heart the
realization that 'there's no spot in Ohio quite so dear' as Alma Mater.

Academy Football Team
The Academy started its season with a green team and prospects were not bright
for a successful year. The boys, though inexperienced, possessed the capacity for standing
a lot of hard VV01'k and they at once began to improve under the guidance of Captain
VVilson, Cox, McConagha, Shaw, and Geyer, veterans ol' last yea1"s team. These boys were
the backbone of the team in the early games, but as the season progressed Wliite developed
into the star offensive man ol' the team. His sidestepping and dodging was one of the
prettiest features of the team's play. Captain-elect Wztclclell played an excellent and con-
sistent game at taekleg Henry possesses the qualities of leadership which will aid him
greatly in ma-king a successful team next year. Ogg, guard, McConagha, end, and Stauffer,
fullback, deserve special mention for their work while Cox, center, was the hardest and
surest tacklcr on the squad. '
At the last of the season with a record of three wins, two losses, and two ties behind
them, Muskingum went to MeConnelsville to play a team that was supposedly better in
every way. They were determined, however, to beat their ancient rivals, and playing
a perfect game they completely outplayed their opponents and finished the contest with
a score of 34-10 in their favor.
Waddell, Young, Stauffer, Downing, Shaw, Law, and Fred Cox will return to the
Academy next fall and their presence promises much for the team of 1926.

Academy Basketball Team
The Academy opened its haskethatll season witl1 three regulars hack from last year's
county and sectional championship team in spite of the fact that five of the former squad
had graduated. Captain MeConagha, XNilson, and Montgomery were the only experienced
men o11 the squad, hut they made a splendid nucleus ahout which to build a team. Mac
XfVl1tite developed even more rapidly in haskethall than he had done in football and soon
made a place for himself on the first live. Mac became o11e of tl1e best defensive men on
tl1e squad and his floor work was excellent. VVilson was high point man in the team and
was selected as all-county center in that tournament. Montgomery used his speed to good
advantage on defensive and was ahle to hold his strongest opponents to scores much helow
their usual level. Captain McConagha was the hest player on the team in almost all
branches of the game and was one of the hest who have ever graduated from the Academy.
He was selected as captain of the all-eounty team and was given a- place on the all-section
team. After winnting' the county championship Muskingum played in the sectional tourna-
ment and after beating Marietta' jr. and McConnellsville, hoth strong teams in the pre-
liminary rounds, was heaten in tl1e finals hy Carrollton.
The team's success was largely due to their consistent fight and good teamwork, which
was hardly equalled hy any of their opponents. The season closed with a record of sixteen
wins and live defeats.

Y. M. C. A. Ohio has a completely organized State Hi-Y Department, of which our

The object ol the Muskingum Hi-Y Club is to associate a group ol Academy men an

ideals which are embodied in the purpose: "To create, maintain, a-nd extend high stand-
ards of Christian character tl1roughout the school Zlllll community," in the slogan: "Clean

The activities of the Hi-Y Club benefit both the school and community. At the weekly
meetings, problems of individual and of school lfife are freely discussed from a Christian
viewpoint. These meetings are open to every man in the Academy. Two of the signal ac-
complishments of this year's work were the arrangement of a community Father and Son's
Banquet and a Move-up-Forward campaign among the Academy men. The club has out-
lined a larger program for next year, which will mean more work for tl1e members and
more satisfaction when it is successfully completed.

Hoyw to Make a Varsity "M" in Your Freshman Year.
We feel this bit of exposition to be justihed in view of the fact that so
many freshmen are admitted to our college on certificate. Furthermore, due
to a gross error., this subject is not satisfactorily covered in any academic
curricula. It remains, therefore, for us to give the freshman a little informa-
tion on this subject.
First, it is necessary to obtain a large sheet of drawing paper, a soft
pencil, and a dependable eraser. These materials can readily be purchased
at any reliable store, or you may borrow them from your room-mate. Hav-
ing procured this paraphernalia, it is necessary only to follow the directions
to make your letter.
Take your sheet of paper and place it flat side down on a desk or table
so that it extends S. E. N. W. if you are right-handed or S. W. N. E. if
you are a "south-paw." Then grasp the fingers as if you were going to
write, and draw to parallel lines with an open space intervening. In this
open space make a line from the lower left hand extremity to the upper
left hand extremity. You now have formed a cross between the parallel
lines. With your dependable eraser neatly remove the lines below the
intersection, being careful not to touch the parallel lines.
Your varsity "M" is' now complete. Indeed, the whole thing is absurdly
simple. If you practice enough an athletic career is assured for you.
A cynic is a man who looks at a middle-aged woman and gets a picture
of the girl he would marry at that age.
"You're,to be excused early today," said Miss Gibbons. "Please walk
quietly through the hall so you won't awake the other classes."
"Poor Ed. he has his faults, but his heart was on the right side."
"No wonder he died."
"What is logic, anyway?"
"Wl1y logic is the stating of things you know in language you don't
Frosh: "Do ou believe in mediums?"
Soph: Yes, I always was about the average."
Little Pat: "I can't play with you 'cause you're a Jewff
Little Ike: "But we're not playing for money."
"I'd like to be a soda jerkerf'
"Yes? Why ?"
Because they lead such stirring lives."

" 'Sa tough orange," mutters the inebriate, as he tried to peel a tennis ball.

"You certainly do get thrown together with some nice fellows here at

"Is there any soup on this bill of fare P"
"There was, but I wiped it off."
"What would you do in case of a sandstorm P"
"I'd run home to the Pyramid and find my mummy."

operation upon kinetic energy liberated by chemico-physical processes in

He was a hard-looking rudian, but his counsel, in a voice husky with
emotion, addressed the jury. "Gentlemen," he said, "my client was driven
by want of food to take a small sum of money. All he wanted was sufficient
money to buy food for his little ones. Evidence of this lies in the fact that he
didn't take a pocketbook containing S4250 that was lying in the room." The
counsel paused for a moment, and noticed the silence interrupted by a sob of

IN 1910 there were 25 tea rooms in
New York. By this year, 1925,
there are over S,000. The Tea Room
industry is a growing one and ha-s solved
the growing question of uVVllCl'C do we
eat." The main reason is that they are
run mostly by women. They know how
to give that dainty touch to food that
is beyond the ken of most male restaur-
ants. Men used to get away with it in
pre-Volstead Days, when people ate
where they could get their favorite
drink. Food today is sold on its merits,
and when so sold must be prepared and
served by women. The College Cabin

less than marvellous.

ZANESVILLE. .. OHIO
OTHING a man can say or do can convince youth
that the photos they are having put in this book
will ever become valuable. Youth looks only toward the
future and has no past. It is no trouble to convince youth
that he should have a good photo of himself to enable
him to get a business or teaching position. But it's a
waste of time to tell him that the same photo will in
after life become a cherished keepsake.
When we .are old and worn with years, we'll read
This record of our youth., the day, the placeg
And we will suit our memory to our need
And long-forgotten name to faded face.
Sadness will come to us who fail to trace
The dreams we dreamed so certain to succeed:
Time's later generations will elrase
The dreamer and the doer and the deed.
Then let us see these tranquil hills again:
Fog-laden trees, thel lighted homeward street:
Let us not seek our former years in vaing
Let us flnd youth unspoiled and living sweet-
For us, once more, the splendor and the pain
Thinking the old earth trembles at our feet."
A photo history of your College days is important. Not
merely these halftones, but genuine photos, life-like and
pleasing -to your relatives and friends of the present and
of inestimable value to you in the future.

OR MANY YEARS we have printed Mus-
, kingum's Junior Class Annual, the Mus-
coljuan, and our business relations with the
Annual Staff and College, during all these
years have been mutual and satisfactory.
Ill We are proud of our work in producing this
year's volume by our new overlay process,
used on the halftones, and feel that the work
of this year's staff reflects the high standard
of Muskingum College.
ill We shall never advocate Bad Printing at
Low Prices in preference to Good Printing at
Fair Prices, because when it comes to Printing,
the Very Best is none too good for anyone.
