They wish to thank the staff which has labored with them in producing the book; they wish to thank the editor and manager of The Wesleyan who has so generously loaned its columns for their use; and also they desire to thank Professors Alabaster and eleven ger, who have especially boosted the work by offering the use of their offices. They are conscious of the fact that there are many things in the pages to come that might be better and many things that fall short of the need. Yet they are certain that mistakes will be pardoned and that whatever of good there may be will find an echo in the hearts of all who love Wesleyan. So with malice toward none and charity for all — even the Faculty — they sign themselves, Qlltp (Cniiotc nf 1909. Z STAMBAUGH, Editor. J. M.

After the resignation of Chancellor Huntington, the trustees of the University found themselves trying to solve the difficult problem of finding a man fitted to take up the task of succeeding him in office. In their final decision they are to be much commended, for in Dr. Davidson they have discovered the one man in a thousand who is capable of doing the great work necessary for the development of the school. A man in the prime of life, full of fiery energy, splendid business sagacity, and ability to lead college men and women, he has already made his personality felt in the state and has endeared himself to the student bodv. 10 CHARLES ADELBERT FULMER Dean of the College of Liberal Arts JAMES F.

After the usual unsatisfactory results in the Freshman-Sophomore scraps last fall, Mr. Thuresson, presi- dent of the Senior class, called upon the presidents of the other classes to appoint committees of two who should act with the four presidents as a " Scrap Committee, " which should undertake the formation of some plan for the regula- tion of these matters. At the first meeting of this committee the consensus of opinion seemed to favor the organization of some body which should have complete power in such affairs. Mr. Matson and Mr. Stambaugh of the Senior class were delegated as a sub- committee to draw up a form of organization. Their report was the presentation of a constitution for the entire College of Liberal Arts. It was accepted by the committee after a great deal of discussion, and, eventually, was favorably passed upon, after a few minor changes, by the student body. This constitution provides that there shall be the usual four officers, president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, who shall be the presidents of the Senior, Junior, Sophomore, and Freshman classes respectively. The further organization of the body as a whole is very simple. The most important provision of this constitution, however, is that establishing- a legislative and judicial body, called the College Council. This organization consists of twelve members — the president and two elected representatives from each class. The College Council is given plenipotentiary power in rendering decisions and fixing the conditions regarding class scraps. For the present, no other powers are sought by the organization. Man} ' of the students and Faculty, however, believe that, in the College Council, they see the nucleus of ultimate self- government among the students of VVesleyan University. The members of the first College Council are : Paul Thuresson, ' 09, president. Margaret Hopper, ' 09, secretary. Z Stambaugh, ' 09. N. O. Reynolds, To. J. West Thompson, To. E. P. Imboden, To. E. L.

Nebraska OIolkQ of 4i?Jitrin The Nebraska College of Medicine was organized during the summer of 1905 for the avowed purpose of teaching medicine and allied sciences, including dentistry, pharmacy, and nursing. Its announcement declared that it had no design of either supplanting or competing with other institutions of learning, and that its sole object was to unite its strength with that of other reputable colleges in the training up of young men in such a manner as would best fit them for a suc- cessful professional life. The determination to fotmcl a new medical college was reached after much deliberation, and the gentlemen at whose request articles of incorporation were issued fully realized the many obstacles to be overcome and the vast amount of energy that would be required to achieve success. The lecture course opened with a class of eight students. Two of the eight removed to another state. (jne, be- cause of an inability to be present during lecture hours, transferred to another school. This student, the first matricu- lant, afterwards returned to the College and is a member of the class of 1909. Lectures were thus delivered through- out the year to five students. .During the following year the splendid property on O street was purchased as a future home for the College, and the classes transferred from the rented rooms in the Press building to the commodious brick residence occupying the College property. The class this year increased in numbers to such a degree that both lecturers and students became enthusiastic in their work. During these two years Freshman and Sophomore work was largely done in the laboratories of the Nebraska VVesleyan University, of which the Nebraska College of Medicine was a patron school. In the spring of 1907 the college, by action of the Board of Trustees of the University, became an affiliated school. The impetus given by this relationship to the Wesleyan was marked. The enrolment was larger, lecturers were more easily secured, and the institution began to take on educational airs in good earnest. The first college commencement was held in the spacious parlors of the Lincoln liotel. Of necessity the graduating class of this year consisted of students from other institutions who for various reasons desired to make their headquarters in Lincoln during their last year of undergraduate work. The following year graduates received their degrees at the hands of Chancellor Huntington at the regular com- mencement of the Wesleyan. During its existence, including the present year, the college had matriculated fifty-one students. It has granted the degree of M.D. to eighteen students, including the class of 1909. With one exception, all of its graduates who have ap- plied to state boards for admission to practice have been licensed. The institution has uniformly insisted on a high grade of scholarship, and on its recommendation a number of students for the session of 1908-9 were registered in the six-vear course, which will mean two full years before taking up the study of mediciiie. Several of its matriculants are graduates from higher institutions of learning, and, beginning with the college year of 190Q-10, students will be required to show evidence of having completed at least one full year ' s work in an accredited college or university before being admitted. 58 iFarulty at titp James Franklin Stevens, A.M., M.D. Dean.

At this time the practice school had only twelve children enrolled, but now has a hundred and twenty-five. The year Professor Jackson took charge of the de- partment only two received certificates, but there has been a steady growth, until now, in 1909, there are twenty-five who will receive the professional certificate. 61 Slip IKttttiprgartpn The Kindergarten is one of the groups of the Teachers ' College of the Nebrasl a Wesleyan University, and repre- sents the first two 3 ' ears (Freshman and Sopliomore) of tliis College.

" In the kindergarten is the seed-corn and the germination of the new education and the new life. The seed has been planted, the burls and flowers are turning towards the sun; let not the chilling frost of traditional teaching blight them. One and all of the true principles of education should be applied ( simply changing the application to adapt it to dififerent stages of growth) through all education, up to the gates of heaven. " — Francis Waylaiid Parker. " There is nothing in all the world so important as children, nothing so interesting. If you ever wish to go in for some philanthropv, if von ever wish to be 01 any real use in the world, do something for children. If you ever yearn to be truly wise, studv children. We can dress the sore, bandage the wounded, imprison the criminal, heal the sick, and bury the dead ; but there is alwavs a chance that we can save a child. If the great army of philanthropists ever exterminate sin and pestilence, ever work out our race ' s salvation, it will be because a little child has led them. " — David Starr Jordan.

Cook 5CH00Lo MPR 35I0N When the Nebraska VVesleyan University was opened, in tlie fall of 1888. the department of elocution was under the head of Miss Amelia Parker. Miss Parker was very enthusiastic, and aroused much interest in elocution while she occupied the chair. ]n the second year of the school Mrs. Ord Gregg, a very brilliant lady, was elected to fill the chair of elocution and oratory. Under her control the school became widely recognized over the state. Following Mrs. Gregg came Miss Hattie L Blood, a graduate of the Emerson School of Oratory, a lady of splendid dignity and high ideals. Under her careful direction and in- struction the school grew in strength until it was one of the ' most promi- nent parts of the University. In the summer of 1899, Mr. A. E. Turner was elected as head of the department. Mr. Turner came to the University after receiving a four- years course at the Columbia School of Oratory, being also a graduate of the department at Weslevan. He had taught in the Columbia School of Oratory, having charge of the evening school and of some day classes. At the time of his election at Wesleyan he was employed on the teaching staff of the older school, and since that time has taught in man}- of their summer sessions. After Mr. Turner ' s accession to office the school took on rapid growth and development, and in a short time had to be reorganized into the Wesleyan School of Expression. Since then it has become one of the most prominent schools of ex- pression in the Middle West, numbering its students by the hundreds and its graduates by the scores. Many of the latter have gone forth as successful teachers and readers, and ministers and lawyers. 69 Sriitur (Ulaaa nf the Srlionl of lExtirpaatou ELIOTT TILLER FITCH HADSELL LAMRACHT m ' cORJi JmtturH of tlij? gTljnol of ?£xprcsston Vincent Roberts ' ambition to become a public speal-cer is clearly manifested by his work in extemporaneous speaking.

IE. ilmtzki-lpton, itmtnr Mr. Upton is one of those musicians who from earhest infancy showed unmistakable signs of musical talent. At five years of age he played the piccolo in two military bands, where he was considered a great curiosity, being able to play any instrument in the band without knowing a note of music or even the names of the instruments on which he performed. At the age of seven he began the stud_ - of the piano and when ten years of age won a medal offered for competition to all school children in Montreal. Continuing his musical studies for six years under a pupil of Liszt, he later appeared several times as soloist with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and received great recognition from the public and press, as well as unstinted praise from the conductor, Professor J. J. Goulet, Laureate of the Liege Conservatory (Belgium). From the years 1897 to 1901 inclusive Mr. Upton studied at the Leipzig Conservatory of Music, where he was a favorite pupil of the celebrated teacher Teichmueller. That the latter, with his modern ideas, should wish to change his hand position and method of playing, led Mr. LTpton to the conclusion that most piano and music teaching was based on mere arbitrary ideas, many of which had been reverently handed down from generation to generation and from teacher to student without any other raison d ' etre than the sanction of time and custom. His observations led him to study the subject of hand position from a physiological viewpoint, and for several years he experimented under the guidance of Dr. Wesley Mills, professor of physiology in the McGill University. During this period he also devoted a great deal of time to the study of methods and the psychological side of teaching, with the result that he has achieved results, even with little children who in public demonstrations before various organizations have shown that both musically and pianistically they were better equipped than the vast majority of professional musicians present. 80 (Sraiiuatpa of tl|e (Canspruatorg of Music Piano tui ntta of Prufpssor Upton » CHOOIy or ART dpoi of Art An even illustration ing class The field in drawi for this The School of Art, which is now in the thrd year of its existence, has been steadily growing in strength and- popularity. The character of the work done by the students during the past semester has evinced much earnest- ness and study, and the results have been very praiseworthy. The work consists of pictures and sketches in oil, water color, and pencil, both froni nature and from studies selected for the purpose of illustrating principles of art or methods of technique. It is in this early drill in the grammar of art that much hidden talent is discovered, encouraged, and directed into those channels in which the pupil seems strongest. It is the aim of the School of Art to give every advantage possible to that large class of people who desire to studv art near home without a large outlay of expense, and yet desire to come in touch with the advanced classes in eastern schools, and to under- stand and apply art principles in their home lives, ng from life is placed on two evenings in the week and is preparatory for book and magazme class of work is very wide, and there is a constant demand for talent m this Ime. 84 (!H|tna f atnttttg The classes in china paintmg in the School of Art have made excellent Droo-ress this vear.

Wagner Arthur Wischmeier Chester Wischmeier William Wullschleger Class Colors.— Dark Blue and Buff. 89 In preparing an article for the " Annual " on the Academy, one is struck by the thought of relationship between the Academy and College. For years the Academy outranked the College in numbers ; its graduating classes were larger than those of the College ; its prowess on the athletic field was recognized ; it excelled in all forms of athletics ; in matters social no organization dared to ignore it. Class scraps, literary societies, athletics, all were dependent on the Academy for their chief support. In other words, the Academy was the perennial fountain of }OutIi bubbling over with vitality, at which the College sought its rejuvenation. The above self-laudatory dissertation is not in the manner of boasting, but rather to draw an interesting comparisou with the present state of affairs. In the whole Academy there was an esprit de corps which should have been at once the envv and source of inspiration of the College. The traditions of the Nebraska Wesleyan University will perpetuate no finer exhibi- tion of real " class spirit " than that shown by the classes of the Academy. They " scrapped " together; they clung together in matters social ; they supported their athletic teams in a way to put to shame their college seniors : in fact, they set the pace for the life of the school. But times change, and we are all glad they do. No more does the Academy outrank the College in members; the athletic teams are now largely composed of College men ; societies are awakening to the necessity of separation, in their member- ship, of the College and Academy student. The College is slowly " coming into its own. " All these changes are the sign of a healthy evolution, and we all welcome it. With the infusion of fresh, healthy life of the Academy, the College is bound to move rapidly forward toward its goal. The College must always look to the Academy as its chief recruiting station. All means possible should be used to encourage the notion that the Academy is a fitting school. There should be no indiscriminate mixing of the two; always should the Academy look up to the College men and women as ideals from every point of view. As a bit of interesting information, we might mention the fact that out of a class of thirty-six graduates of last year, thirty-three are in College — a percentage not often equaled elsewhere. 90 mtitn-a of Atl|lpttr Aaauciatiou i»tuiirnt IBoby REYNOLDS SIMONDS BISHOP During the past year an advance has been made, not only in the standing of Wesleyan ' s athletic teams, but also in the, administration of athletics. At the close of the school year of 1907-8 a committee was ap- pointed, with Professor Somerville as chairman, to draft a new constitution for the Athletic Association. The new constitution as drafted was adopted at a meeting of the old Athletic Board, held directly upon the resumption of school in the fall. By the provisions of this constitution, the Athletic Association is divided into a general body, consisting of the students. Faculty, and alumni of the University, and a board of directors, into whose hands the man- agement of athletics is given. At an election held immediately upon the adoption of the constitution the following students were elected as officers of the general body : President, W. O. W. Revnolds; vice-president, E. S. Bishop; secretary, C. A. Meyer ; treasurer, C. O. Simonds. The students also elected Professor Evans, C. A. Meyer, W. O. W. Reynolds, and R. M. Isham as members of the board of directors. The Faculty appointed Professors Hop- kins, Somerville, and Clevenger to serve on the board. The organization of the board of directors was perfected with Mr. Isham as president; Mr. Reynolds, vice-president; Mr. Meyer, secretary; and Professor Hopkins, treasurer. The first year under the new regime has proven a glowing success and a triumph of clean management. Certainly Wesleyan owes Professor Somerville a debt of gratitude for the new constitution. up to the time of Professor Clevenger ' s advent in the fall of 1907, Wesleyan had never realized that of which she was capable in athletics. The school had as good athletic material as the schools which were then sending out champion teams, but was sorelv in need of the right kind of a man to bring it out and develop it. . • r Thanks to the powers that be, such a man was obtained. The coming of Z. G. Clevenger meant the begmnmo- of an athletic spirit in the University such as had never been known before. At once both students and Faculty began to take an interest in these matters, which had hitherto held but minor sway in the college life at Wesleyan. The first signal achievement of Coach Clevenger was the securing for Wesleyan the Inter-Collegiate Basketball Cham- pionship of Nebraska for the season of 1907-8. , , , . • 1, 1 .ui The Track Team in the spring was brought to a higher grade than it had ever reached before, i his branch of athletic sports had always been Wesleyan ' s weak point, but last year she came within one point and a half of winning the Inter- G ollc Field ] ' Ieet. The Baseball Team last spring won from the State University at a score of five to four, and tied with Peru for first place in the Nebraska Inter-Collegiate Baseball League. rr , „, The o-reatest blessing realized from the presence of Clevenger, however, was the reestablishment of football last season. So implicTt was the coufidence of the Faculty and students in the new Physical Director that the privilege of again putting the school into the football class was readily granted, and great diings may be expected from Wesleyan on the gridirons of the future. The fact that nearly all the members of the team last fall were entirely new to the game makes the winning of the one game of the season in itself phenomenal. The Basketball season of this winter, has been the most successful m the history of the school. the state champion- ship was lost on account of one streak of bad luck, but Wesleyan ' s record, in playing schools outside the Nebraska League, has been unexcelled. The crowning victory of the season was the crushing defeat administered to the LIniversity of Ne- braska at a score of sixty-two to thirty-two. , „r , The outlook for track and baseball has never been so good as that of this spring, and Wesleyan may be expected to win a high place at the Inter-Collegiate Meet. , r ■ tt , In his undergraduate days Coach Clevenger became a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. He played quarter- back on one of the most powerful football teams ever sent out by his Alma Mater. For two years he was physical director at the University of Indiana. Every summer he plays baseball with the " Three I " League. He is a member of the executive committee of the Nebraska Inter-Collegiate Athletic Association, and undoubtedly makes an efficient adviser. He is very popular in Lincoln athletic circles as referee and umpire in various football, basketball, and baseball games. Certainly Wesleyan can not but feel elated at having the best all-round athletic coach west of the Missouri river, and all unite in wishing for Professor Clevenger a prosperous and successful career. 93 FOOT BALL Last October Wesleyan athletics received the greatest addition that has been given for many 3 ' ears. This was the intro- duction of footbah among the inter-collegiate sports. This achievement has been the result of several years " careful and judicious agitation on the part of both students and Faculty members. No little credit for this is due Mr. Harry O. Palmer ' 08, v ho was president of the Athletic Board in 1907-8. It was largely because of his efforts that Professor Clevenger was secured as physical director last year, and it was through the careful organizing power of Mr. Palmer and Mr. Walter H. Kieschel ' 08 that the strong football sentiment of the student body first found expression and dared make itself heard. In consequence of this agitation, at the opening of the present school year, some of the bolder spirits began to be seen daily on the campus wearing football suits and practicing punting and tackling. Then, under the leadership of Benj. F. Mickey, ' 11, a petition was circulated among the student body requesting the Faculty to recognize the game. It met with the unanimous approval of the students and was granted at once when presented to the Faculty. A schedule of three inter-collegiate games was permitted for the season. Immediately a call was issued, and a large squad reported for practice. Although the season was already well ad- vanced, Coach Clevenger soon had the team drilled in a large variety of plays and prepared to meet opponents on the gridiron. The first game was played with Grand Island College. Through a blunder of the referee, which infringed upon the rules of the game, the score at the close was announced a tie — six to six. By decision of Walter Van Camp, the editor of the foot- ball rules, however, the game was awarded to Wesleyan by a score of six to nothing. 94 In the other two inter-collegiate games, however, Wesleyan did not fare so well. In the Hastings game the Coyotes were defeated by a score of thirt} ' -three to nothing. This game was played in mud and sleet. It was enough to take the heart out of a green team. In the Doane game the final score was twenty-three to nothing in favor of Doane. This was a hard-fought battle. The scores scarcely represent the true merit of the teams, for Wesleyan was in the game every minute of play, and her opponents found every inch of gain hard work, while their own goal line was being threatened continuallv by those extraordinary and surprising tactics " Clev " had taught the boys. In consideration of the late start and the inexperience of the players, the showing made was remarkable, and should be a matter of pride to Wesleyan ' s friends. This can be attributed to one thing only — the excellent coaching of Professor Clevenger. Few coaches could have accomplished so much in so brief a time with such inexperienced material. In view of the rapid development exhibited by the squad this year, Wesleyan can expect nothing short of a winning team next season. Those earning the coveted football " W " of 1908 were : Lehman, ' 12 - - ■ End Showalter, ' 11 - End Banta, ' 09 - - - Tackle Kuns, " 11 Tackle McAfee, ' 12 - Guard Jacobson - _ .

The team equaled the record of last year ' s team by winning- eleven out of fourteen games, and surpassed it by defeating teams representing such schools as the University of Nebraska and the famous Ames Aggies of Iowa. The college championship of Nebraska was decisively won in the final game of the season, in which the University of Nebraska was smothered by the score of 62 to 32. The games were won largely by the superior speed which Coach Clevenger has succeeded in drilling into the team. Many of the teams plaved were absolutely unable to interfere with Wesleyan ' s team work, the players standing about like so man_ - spectators. Moreover, to this speed the team added enough of the fighting spirit to enable the players to hold their own against teams which depend on roughness for victory, and to keep them worldng hard and confidently even when the score stood against them. The team was captained the first semester by Ben Beck, who played a strong and shift)- game at guard until the end of the semester, when he was compelled to leave school. Ralph Swan was elected to fill the vacancy, which he did most successfully, putting up an exceedingly fast game at guard. Captain-elect Mever at forward developed into Wesleyan ' s best point-maker, finding no guard who could stop him. He hung up his best record in the State University game, in which he made fifteen field goals. Simonds, by his speed and skill in team work, was largely instrumental in the success of the team. No guard was met who could keep with him in covering the floor. To Isham, Wesleyan ' s center, as much as to any one else, is due the success of the season. He had his opponents bested in every department of the game, showing up especially strong in the Ames and Nebraska games. Kuns, who succeeded Beck at guard, developed rapidly into a strong and depend- able player, becoming noted for his close and successful guarding. Vifquain played a good game both at guard and forward. Especially in the Ames game he distinguished himself by his clever pla in!: remarkablv good abilitv whenever he was present in the games. lOI Lehman, who acted as substitute, showed The season ' s Wesleyan . . .

Girls ' SaakptbaU BASE • BALL On the eve of the opening of the basebah season in the Inter-collegiate Leagne, Wesleyan ' s outlook is encouraging. Everything points to a repetition of last year ' s success, which culminated in the winning of the inter-collegiate pennant. The brightest feature of the team ' s work is the battery performance of Farthing and Stringfellow. As captain and catcher String-fellow is showing up well, while Farthing is almost " unhittable. " This year the schedule has branched out, and games have been secured with three schools in the Missouri " alley Con- ference. These schools are the State Universities of Nebraska and Missouri and Drake College of Iowa. The first two games have already been played, and Wesleyan succeeded in defeating the University of Nebraska by a score of five to four, while in the second game, although Farthing held Missouri to four hits and struck out thirteen men, Wesleyan lost bv a score of four to nothing. Another innovation introduced this year is an early season training trip. Leaving on the 2d of April, the team spent a week touring Kansas. While they met teams that had an advantage of two or three weeks ' more practice, secured be- cause of the earlier opening of spring in the southern state, they succeeded in winning two of the six games played, and only lost the others by small scores. 107 The lineup of the team at present is: Stringfellow, captain and catcher; Farthing, pitcher; Campbell, pitcher; Hall, first base; Lehman, second base; Swan, shortstop; Ronsey, third base; Cole, left; Cain, center; and Eisenhart, right. The men are all showing np well and will doubtless have a most successful season. The schedule of games played to date is : Wesleyan . W esleyan . Wesleyan . W esleyan . Wesleyan .

Dnring the ' 90s when football was played at Wesleyan, some good track athletes were developed, and our school was able to hold its own. But with the passing of football, interest in all other branches of athletics died down and remained in this state of lethargy until the magic hand of Professor Clevenger brought the dead bones to life. The outlook for a good track team this spring is exceptionally bright. In the preliminary meet, which is held annu- ally on the last Friday in April, there has been a new departure this year, in that it is to be an inter-class afifair. A banner is to be given to the class scoring the largest number of points, and a gold medal to the individual securing first honors. The gold medal last year was won by Mr. Robert Isham, he having obtained fifteen points. Those receiving the next highest number of points were Howard Kline, fourteen, Leonard Anderson, thirteen, and John McVay, eleven. Aside from the local meet, Wesleyan took part in three meets last year, a dual meet with the Freshmen of the State University, a dual meet with Doane, and the inter-collegiate meet. Meets are scheduled with the same opponents for this ' ear, and negotiations a re under way with a South Dakota team. In the state meet last year Wesleyan came within a point and a half of securing first place, a remarkable circumstance considering the poor showing made theretofore. There is one fact of which we may well be proud, and that is that we have received an invitation to send a team to the Missouri Confer- ence meet to be held at Des Moines on June 5. We may take this as a recognition of our growing importance in athletics, since none but universities which put out good teams are permitted to take part in these Missouri valley contests. Those who were awarded sweaters with the letter W last year were Isham, Underwood, McA ay, Kline, Anderson, and Mickey. 110 ®rark SIpam Top Row— Bishop, Thompson, Clevenger, Coach, Ruyle, McMillan Second Row— Kuns, Meyer, Showalter, Clift, Hoover Third Row— Newkirk, Foreman.

Last year and again this year Scudder has been her representative in singles and Partridge and Scudder in doubles. Their record is remarkable. Last year they played several inter-collegiate matches and won them all. They defeated several teams from the University of Nebraska as well as teams from Doane, Amity, Tabor, and other colleges. Again this year they have started ofi by defeating two teams from the University of Nebraska. Their work has created a greater interest in tennis at Wesleyan, and consequently this year the Athletic Board has made arrangements for a state inter-collegiate tournament. In this tournament teams representing Peru, Doane, the Uni- versity of Nebraska, Cotner, York, Hastings, and Wesleyan will compete for trophies in both singles and doubles. The chances are strongly in favor of the retention of both of these trophies at Wesleyan. Under the inspiration of this brilliant record the Tennis Association has developed new life and vigor. The member- ship has been greatly enlarged and much interest in the game has developed. At almost any hour of the day friendly con- tests are in progress on the courts belonging to the Association. The students are coming to realize what an excellent recreation and sport the game is. And certainly it is an excellent sport. For it develops the body to quicker and surer action and the mind to rapid think- ing, as well as furnishing a most fascinating form of exercise. It is a game in which any one can find pleasure and become proficient. It does not require as large a degree of physical strength as other forms of at hletics do, yet it is splendid as a means of developing such strength. 112 L ITERATURE: 8 BY ROBERT ISHAM, ' 09 Prize Story in flic Iiitcr-Society Short Story Contest Somewhere in Italv, in fact, somewhere in the south of Italy, Beppo ' s son is probably still living. Yet he does not live in troublous times such as once disturbed the current of his father ' s life. Times have changed, and the law no longer countenances the oppression of the poor by their wealthy neighbors. When Beppo lived, liowever, such things were common. The law even aided that factor, which our modern makers of phrases have styled as predatory wealth, in its depredations. Yet, in spite of the fact that he was poor, Beppo was happv. He possessed a little vineyard, inherited from his ancestors. At the edge of the vineyard was a snug little vine- covered cottage, and, best of all, within the cottage was his beloved young wife, Tessa. Moreover, they felt themselves secure from the encroachments of the wealthy, for was not Count Marino their friend and protector? He who was known far and wide as the defender of the poor would certainly let no harm come to this happy couple who dwelt almost within the shadow of his mansion. Especially they felt this to be true in view of the fact that one of the Count ' s ancestors had owed his life to the heroism of Beppo ' s grandfather and had given him the vineyard as a reward for his service. Se- cure in this belief, thev went on in the daily round of their lives, Beppo toiling in the vineyard and Tessa attending to her household duties. One spring morning, as Beppo was trimming his vines, a man dressed in the uniform of the constabulary came trot- ting out from the city on a splendid grey horse. Beppo stopped to admire as he came riding up. Coupled with the ad- miration, however, was a degree of fear and siispicion, for the constabulary were the allies of the wealthy. Beppo won- dered what poor man was now to feel the cruel hand of the law, and thanked the good saints for the protection of Count Marino. As the rider came closer Beppo noticed that he kept looking about as if ' he was expecting to find some one. Supposing that he was uncertain as to his road, Beppo stepped out into view, with the purpose of directing liim on his way. The horseman came up and stopped, asking, " Is, this Beppo Foscari ? " Flattered at being recognized and yet frightened because he was sought, Beppo replied that it was, whereupon the rider produced from his pocket a formidable looking official document. This he handed to Beppo, remarking scornfully, " His most righteous highness Count Marino has turned his coat. It appears that he protects the poor from others merely that he may rob them himself. " " But what do you mean? " asked Beppo fearfully. " What is this? " " You have but to read and then you will know, " replied the officer. " But I can not read; you must tell me, " exclaimed Beppo. " Well, then, " said the horseman, " the paper is to tell you that the count will drive you from your house and vineyard. He is grown suddenlv covetous and sues you before Appiani, the magistrate, charging that the vineyard is his. The case comes up for trial on the day after tomorrow, and I warn you to seek another place to stay, for the count will win. " 114 Dazed and terrified by this sudden blow, Beppo stood silent and watched the officer turn his horse back toward the city and gallop rapidly off down the road. Then he slowly made his way back to the cottage where Tessa went singing about her duties. As ' he walked, a sickening despair came over him, and this was followed by fierce anger as he came to a realization of the cruel injustice of it all. Tessa received the news of impending evil quietly, yet with a look of sudden- fear and loneliness which showed more clearly than words what a blow it was to her. In their misfortune thev knew no counsel Count Marino had always been their friend and adviser, and now he was turned against them. Finally Beppo decided to go and see the count and beg for mercy. So, choking down his anger, he struck into the path which led up to the beautiful villa of the count, on the crown of a nearby hill. But when he reached his destination the count would not see him. He was turned away curtly at the door, with the excuse that the count was busy. Three times that day he returned, but it was useless ; the count would not give him a hearing. ' Somehow the intervening time was gotten over, and the day of the trial arrived. Beppo, carrying with him the deed to the vineyard, which had been cherished carefully and handed down from father to son ever since its original granting, set out for the city. Count Marino was not present before the magistrate, but was represented by one of those disreputable lawyers who aided the rich in their robberies. The frial was a mere farce. The count ' s lawyer based his case on some old records which set forth the boundaries of the Marino estate at a time years before the vineyard was presented to Beppo ' s grandfather. Of course these boundaries included the vineyard, and on this thin pretext Appiani, the magistrate, declared tile deed which Beppo showed to be a forgery. He judged the vineyard and cottage to be the property of Count Marino, and drove Beppo from court with threats of arrest and imprisonment. Filled with despair and rage, and followed by the jeers of the minor officers of the law, Beppo set out for the cottage which he could no longer call home. What was to become of Tessa and himself he could not guess. In fact, although he was deprived of his home and his means of livelihood, he tried to make no plans for the future. He only knew that he had been cruellv wronged, and his hot Italian nature cried out for vengeance. Tessa, who had been anxiously waiting, met him at the door and read the tale of their misfortune from his face. " What shall we do? " she cried. " Where shall we go and how will we live? " " I don ' t know, " Beppo answered. " I am going to be even with the count before I think about that. " " But you can do nothing; you will only find more and worse trouble. " " Let the trouble come, " he ' stubbornly replied. " It can ' t come before I have my turn at him. " " Yes, but it will, ' ' she exclaimed. " They will be watching for you and will seize you as soon as you go near him. " " I will repay him when they are not watching. He has stolen away our home by deception, and I will use deception or whatever other means is necessary to be even. " Tessa did not realize that she was quickly moulding her husband ' s furious and consequently harmless rage into a cool and deliberate scheme of revenge. Had she urged him on he would doubtless have flung himself desperately into some blind attempt which would have been quickly frustrated ; but by calling up the obstacles in his way she made him think and plan. 115 So she went on foolishly, " They will know who has harmed him and send _ -ou to prison. " " They must first catch me, " he answered. " I can flee as fast as they can follow. " " But the count himself will be watching for you, " she objected. " I am stronger than he, and the fight will soon be won, " said Beppo. " What will become of me? " she asked. " Whether you are sent to prison or run away, I will be left alone and homeless. " But as she spoke a plan seemed to strike her husband. Not heeding, and apparently not hearing her words, he turned and strode off into the gathering dusk, leaving Tessa alone. She stood for a time blanldy staring at the spot where he had disappeared. Then a sudden impulse to follow seized her and she rushed out into the dusky evening, calling his name. It was useless, the only answer she received was a irustling of the evening wind through the vines and grass. Somehow the sound associated itself in her mind with the creeping of some unseen creature of the night, and she fled back into the cottage, shuddering with superstitious dread. The night was spent in an agony of uncertainty. What would her husband do? What should she do? Her mind called up wierd and dreadful tales " of ' assassinations and mysterious murders, of fires and conflagrations. She was sure her husband ' s revenge would be terrible, but what would it be? Would Jie attack the Count in person or would he content him- self with firing his villa? Would he be caught or would he escape? Once she started for the door resolved to go and warn the Count, btit then she remembered that in doing so she would make certain that her husband woukl be sent to prison. Again and ' again her listening ear caught some slight s ound, and she hurried to the door to look up at Count Marino ' s villa ; but always silence and darkness reigned there. Alwa -s the blow was about to fall, Ever - moment she expected to hear distant shouts and cries and to see lights flash out in the home of the count. In this attitude of tense expectancy the in- terminable hours of the night crept slowly by. At last day dawned, but with the light came no relief from the fears that tortured her. Faint with " the long night ' s vigil, she flung herself upon her bed, but not to sleep. Her listening ear still strained to catch the sounds that she hoped would never come. As the day grew older the ordinary sounds of country life began to multiply. A cart creaked past on the road, some one whistled in the distance, and the birds sang everywhere. Suddenlv there appeared in the doorway a messenger from the Count ' s villa. He carried a carefully folded paper in his hand, which he handed to Tessa. " What is this? " asked Tessa, taking it as though it were a death warrant. " It is a new deed which the count had made out " giving the vineyard back to ' our husband, " replied the man. " Whv, what do vou mean? " she asked. " Is he going to give it back to us? " " Yes, " he answered. " The count did not want the vineyard. He only sued you to get evidence against Appiani, the magistrate. Now he has the evidence, and Appiani will go to prison. He will help rob the poor no more. " Jovfully Tessa thought of the celebration she and her husband would have when he returned and heard the news. But suddenly another idea struck her. What if her husband should attack the Count without allowing him to explain. Fearfully she asked, " Is the count at home. " ii6 " No, " he replied. " He drove to the city to begin, the prosecution of Appiani as soon as he heard of his decision last night. " So the messenger went away leaving Tessa still worried about the future. , , i,, tnlllno- of the Presently a distant booming sound fell upon her ear.

The clover drooping with sweetness, And the fragrance-laden air? Did you lie on the shaded doorstep Dreamily watching the sky. While the clouds in their fleecy whiteness Lazily floated by? Did you hunt in the pond for tadpoles Where the arching grasses meet Or stroke the soft brown cat-tails Cool in the summer heat? Do you remember the meadows Where the bobolink ' s nest was hung. How he rose and sang before you His rollicking gleeful song. Pouring forth the maddest of music From his little throbbing breast. His happy heart near bursting With the secrets of his nest? Do you remember its noondays With their scorching withering heat? Did the ground and the boards you stepped on Burn your weary sun-browned feet ? Was the sultry silence broken By the locust ' s harsh, shrill call. Or the drowsy bees ' low droning As they massed on the hot hive-wall? Do you remember its evenings, The lengthening shadows gray And the dewy, quiet coolness At the close of a glad full day? Far in the blue above you Aimlessly flying alone. Did the gray night hawk cry wildly Or drop with a jarring tone? Did you hear from weird dark shadows The soft owl ' s quivering cries. And see him noiselessly flying Or staring with big round eyes?

In this contest tliere were six competitors for honors. William Crossland, a member of the Soph- omore class, was awarded first place, and Roy Swift of the Junior class second place. The state contest was held in the city auditorium of Lincoln under the auspices of Cotner University. VVesleyan was given fourth place in this contest. At the last annual convention of the State Association it was decided to raise the prize going to die winner of first place in the state con- test to $50 instead of $25. William A. Crossland was born at Wayne, Nebraska, on February 10, 1888. He attended the Wayne High School continuously until the year of his graduation in 1906. After clerking for a year, he came to Wesleyan in the fall of 1907, and in his second year won first place in the local oratorical contest. 120 President Secretary Treasurer W. L. Ruyle W.

More than a dozen men were gathered together to form an organization and arrange practice hours. Mr. W. H. Kiechel was chosen as manager with Jesse D. Taylor for assistant manager and Roy H. Swift as treasurer. Thus organized they struggled during the year with only their love for the work and the hope of what the club might some day be to prompt them. Plans were made toward the close of the year for con- cert work, but the adverse circumstances under which the Club labored permitted only a home concert and several appear- ances in Lincoln. When again assembled for school, interest was yet apparent, and soon those who returned gathered together with others chosen to fill the vacant ranks. At the first meeting Mr. Evert L. Stancliff was elected manager and S. J. Ingraham secretary and treasurer. Light soon • appeared, and a first great step in advance was made when, through merits of their work, the boys were granted credit for their labor, and Professor Hadley made director by the University. The present moment shows even greater things ahead, for after giving two concerts with success, and after receiving invitations to the best towns in the state, the men feel that they are really to do something for Wesleyan, while developing themselves. The future is bright, and in years ahead the Weslevan Glee Club means to make its work a credit to its members and to Old Wesleyan. 127 (ill}p liniurrBitg Sanii Nebraska Hpslpgatt (irrI|PHtral lan Everett Mills Hosman, Manager Paul Thuresson, Secretary and Treasurer Flossie Hughes, Reader Grace Smith, violin Wm.

The aim of the Association is to niiluence men to accept Christ as their Saviour and to train them for Christian service. It gives students who have been accustomed to working in the church at home a chance to do Christian work and to studj ' religious questions. Since it is while in colleo-e that the habits of a lifetime are formed, it is gratifying to see so many young men identifying themselves with the Association. Two years ago we had no general secretary, but in the following year Herbert Kendall, of Indiana University, was secured as half- time secretary. He did such excellent work that the trustees of the University took a hand in the matter and made it possible for the As- sociation to have a full-ti me secretary. Don S. Ford came to us from North Dakota University and has been untiring in his efforts to build up the Christian life of the men. Under his direction every department of the Association has been strengthened. The regular religious meetings of the Association held at 9:00 o ' clock Sunday morning have been well attended, and good speakers from various vocations have addressed the men. Among these speakers may be mentioned J. P. Bailey, State Secretary, E. J. Simonds, State Student Secretary, Hon. Berge of Lincoln, H. W. White of the Student ' V olunteer Movement, Secretary C. M. Mayne of the Lincoln As- sociation, Chancellor Wm. J. Davidson, Evangelist Hart, Prof. H. W. Cox, and Rev. Northrup of Trinity Church, Lincoln. Benj. Alexander is chairman of the religious meetings committee. Eleven Bible study groups are conducted by the Association. j Iost of these are led by students, and nearly one hundred men ar; enrolled in them. The student leaders meet once a week with Professor Turner in a normal training group to study the lessons and discuss the problems of the leaders. Bert Bessire is chairman of the Bible Study Committee. A great stride forward has been taken this year in mission study due to the efforts of Chairman Robert Murray, who has secured col- lege credit for mission study in two classes led by professors. Two other classes are also conducted. A seven number lecture course is maintained by the Association under the management of Glen Anawalt. This is one of the strongest courses to be found anywhere, as the talent presented is of the highest type. The Association has undertaken a new line of work this year in the extension work. Under the direction of Ford Kuns, a junior branch of the association was organized, at the high school. There are forty-two members in this department. They have two club rooms, a gymnasium class, and a Bible class. Another kind of extension work is known as band work. Delegations go to some of the nearby towns and hold special religious meetings or help in revival meetings. This is principally done during vacations. The social side of the college men has not been neglected, and several receptions and socials have been held under the direction of Mal- colm Showalter. In this way the men have become better acquainted and the feeling of good fellowship has been promoted. Through the efforts of an energetic membership committee, under Wm. Ruyle and Clifford Butler, nearly every man in the University has become a member of the Association, and manv have for the first time entered the Association of the King of Kings. At the conventions held at various places during the year our Association is always represented by a good delegation. At the General Student Conference held at Cascade, Colorado, last June twelve men represented the Wesleyan association ; two men attended the Inter- national Bible Study Convention at Columbus, Ohio, in October; and thirteen men went to Hastings to the state convention in February. At these conventions the students come in contact with the leaders of God ' s Kingdom, the question of life work is presented, and many de- cisions are made and lives given for service in the ministry, the Young Men ' s Christian Association, and the foreign field. The men wdio attend these conventions are greatly inspired. All in all, the Young Men ' s Christian Association at Wesleyan is in a very prosperous con- dition, and we predict for it even greater influence for good in the future. % W. (S- A.

She has shown remarkable skill in developing and organizing the work, and through her efforts the Association has been brought into much closer touch with the plans and purposes of the national organization. This has been a very successful year for the Young Women ' s Christian Association, and it has been marked by steady progress along- various lines. There has been evident in the officers and committee chairmen an earnestness of purpose which has been felt throughout the entire As- sociation, and which has kept all departments of the work uniformly and effectively active. The Stmday meetings have been helpful and well attended. Ex- change meetings have been arranged for and carried out with Doane and Bellevue, and many excellent outside leaders have been secured. The special music each Sunday has also aided a great deal. The membership this year is larger in proportion to the number of girls in school than ever before. There are only about fifty who have not joined. The number of Bible Study Classes has been increased, and the attendance has been more regular than in other years. The mission study work has been strengthened by the introduction of three classes receiving Univer- sity credit under Professors Cox, Wells, and Bishop. Financially the work has prospered also. The Budget has been enlarged, the plan for systematic giving has received a good response, and a considerable sum has been donated by outside friends. Josephine Brown, Gen.

The Club has led a continuous and thriving existence since. This year the work of the Club has been especially good. Using Lassar Cohn ' s " Chemistry in Daily Life " as a text- book, the members have given excellent programs, consisting largely of papers and discussions. Nor has the social side been neglected. After man} ' of the programs social times have been spent in the investigation of problems in the chemistrv of foods and drinks. With an enlarged membership and more frequent programs, the degree of interest manifested has been largely increased. A broadened view of the well-nigh universal application of chemistry to industrial life and to even the most common household affairs has been gained. The Club has thus performed a large service in showing the close connection between that which is purely scientific and that which is practical. By so doing it has served to increase in- terest in the class work of the department. To those who intend to teach chemistry or to engage in other branches of chemical work the importance of member- shi]3 in the Club can not be too much emphasized, for, as has been shown, the work taken up is not such as is found in ordi- nary chemical text-books, but deals with problems having practical interest. Hence knowledge gained in the Club is valu- able later, both in class room work and in industrial chemistrv. Dr. Hopkins Anna Smith C. O. Simonds R. M. Isham T. T. Showalter E. S. T ' ishop T, C.

Strictly speaking, it is a philosophical society, yet its scope of investigation is broad enough to include research along lines of sociology, religion, and science as well. The membership has been purposely kept small, in order to insure a thorough interest in each one. In some future time many philosophical authorities throughout the United States will doubtless owe their start to the Kosmos Klub of Nebraska. y lready one of its members, Harvey G. Townsend, who holds a scholarship at Corneh University, has been the author of important articles in the Philosophical Rcviczv.

Tliese members worked hard to promote the growth and welfare of the Club, and before the school vear closed the membership had been raised to twenty. Meetings were held on the second and fourth Monday evenings of each month, at which demonstrations and discus- sions were given by members of the Club and interested Facult} members. To relieve the monotony of continued evening meetings and demonstrations, an afternoon picnic was held at Epworth ■ Park. A delightful afternoon and evening were spent, and maiiy good pictures resulted. This event practicallv closed the work for the _ ' ear of 1907-8. At the beginning of the school year of 1908-9 only four of the former members returned. This meant that an almost entirely new club must be organized. This resulted in a membership of twenty-two at the end of the first semester. The work of the Club this year has been much more systematic and satisfactory than it was last vear. A study of the book, " Picture Taking for Pleasure and Profit, " by T. Stith Baldwin, has been taken up in detail, with demonstrations and discussions by club members and members of the P ' acult} ' . Most important of the numerous things the Club has done this } ' ear are the purchase of a bulletin board for the lower hall of the main building and a camera, which was sent to Homer Whitehorn, a last year ' s graduate of Wesleyan who is now teaching in the Philippines. The Club has ofifered numerous prizes for pictures, artistic or otherwise, of members of the Facultv or Senior class. We are hoping that the Club will be as great an improvement next year over what it has been this vear as it has been an improvement this year over what it was last year. With as much improvement during the next twelve months as dur- ing the last the Camera Club will become a most important factor among the student organizations at Wesleyan. 147 (Ulaaatral Cttlub ICLINE SCHOCK TALBOT ATKINSON THOMPSON SNOW NICKELL LANE BECKVVITH MOVER THATCHER LANG BECK STAMBAUGH BUCK ATWELL President Vice-Prcsid Secretary Treasurer (Elaastral Qllub J.
