"Clint,', the 73-pound fly-weight, meets all comers out at school nearly every day. He is also the Class hiascot., never having known of the chances for graft in this world until June 22, 1896. He has us all guessing at the secret for his wonderfully sleek hair, though. "Spence" went to St. John's before coming to Nichols in 1910, and now is headed for Pennsylvania.

He has few Worries, and these consist mainly in deciding what make of automobile he will choose. He has a hearty laugh, which may be heard almost any time, echoing through the corridors.

At times he is dangerous, and many have felt the weight of his mas- sive fist. He really is our only P.

He came to Nichols in 1910, Where he has been having a pretty fair time, undisturbed by too much studying. He can put up a mighty good bluff and, when he wears that innocent expression and talks in those pleading tones, few masters can resist him. Harold is some manager, too. He is bound for Syracuse.

"Deck" was born August 31, 1893, and came to Nichols from St. hlarkis in 1910. You can't judge by Deck's pictureg he doesn't even know himself in it. You must excuse a lot of things in Deck, but you have to hand it to him on his line of talk. It is most diverting to listen to him. Rumsey is thinking seriously of going to Harvard.

The "Ns," numerals and other insignia won by nlenibers of the various teams are awarded by the Board. As this body is composed largely of representatives of the student body, it is practically governed by them. However, the number is kept so small that the meetings are very successful, while they would be of no value if more were members. The three nlelnbers from the Faculty lend the proper tone, and their n1o1'e mature judgment is invaluable. ' The work of the Board during the past year has been excellent.

The opening of school found only four of the regular players of 1910 ready for practice, and these, with a few new arrivals and the substitute material of the year before, had to be whipped into shape for a very early start.. ' The first games showed a marked improvement over those of the previous year, in certain respects. A keener competition, greater team loyalty and an increased willingness to do faith- ful work augured Well for the team,s success. The most conspicuous fault disclosed was a certain slowness in getting into action. Against Angola, Attica, Springville and Niagara Falls 'THE VERDUAN NUNETEEN TWELVE the team showed sufhcient football to hold their opponents safe at all times. Meanwvliile, the green 1 linemen and backiield were gaining steadiness. ,Q ,jg , ,L ,, - Nichols' first cup game-against Masten Park -showed a fighting spirit, the more commendable because of the trying conditions under which the team played. Lax ruling by officials always tells against the lighter team, and in this game the Nichols eleven, greatly outweighed, wrestled gamely to the end. gaining the only touchdown made by rushing in the score of 15 to 6. Against Dunkirk, the following week, the team showed perhaps the completest mastery of their game. Playing at the top of their form, our team scored two touchdowns against a very dangerous opponent, and held their own goal quite safe at all times. An attack of stage fright, Jack Putnanfs early injury, a furious attack and an unyielding defense, that was tricked only by the sideline play that won the game, tells the story of the Lafayette game. Nichols had faced Lafayette in football and had dispelled all doubt of the I - YE I smaller schoolis ability to meet all comers on an " equal terms. The Technical contest, the Saturday follow- ing, showed Nichols at its worst. The hard strug- gle with Lafayette had brought on the dreaded slump, and in a slow, dull game neither team suc- ceeded in scoring. The Central game closed the season. The field was not at its best, and a sixty-mile wind ' L 53 TEE VEEEUEN A NUNETEEN TWELVE was blowing. Nichols, by attempting to kick, kept the ball within her own twenty-five yard line throughout the first quarter, but Central required thirteen minutes to make the first touch- down.i Thereafter, Nichols made no attempt to kick a.gainst the wind, but held Central safe throughout the last three periods and scored two touchdowns. It was a very well-earned vic- tory and closed the season of as plucky and eager a team as ever answered the whistle. Captain Betts rounded out a record of three unbroken seasons of play, by earning the name of the greatest defensive player in the city-present. or past. Jack Putnam, coming from St. Luke's, ran the team with dash and fire that carried the green men through the early dark days to the time when they found themselves. Nelson Graves took up his brot.her's duties as manager, and worked early and late, to what good effect we know. There were others deserving praise- as many as fought out the season on the team, or played against it daily on the scrub. If to know they have made "Nichols,, a symbol of honesty, sportsmanship and courtesy is worth the season's Work, they have their reward. The team next fall will be a new one. WVe cannot forecast the season's score, which is of small importance. We must, however, claim and look forward to the same loyalty, honor and courage which make the season of 1911 a pleasant memory.

The chances for building up a successful term were demonstrated by the showing our relay team and the men in the novice races had made at the 'Hth Armory. Another factor was the excellent management under which the team was conducted. John Kennedy, although barred by his age from participating in the Princeton Meet, nevertheless made a good captain. Paul Roberts, besides being one of thc best runners on the team. also managed it. But the mainspring of our success was hir. Vokes-the track coach. No comment on his ability is needed, for he is generally 1'ecog- nized as the most experienced man in track affairs in this part of the State. Besides coaching the team he super- vised the reconstruction of the track, often taking an active part himself. About thirty men responded to the first call for outdoor practice, but the work-out track meet narrowed down the ones of real ability to the following: in the dashes, Houpt, Filbrick, Roberts, Robertson, Moncrieff, in the hur- dles, Armstrong, Bissell, Houpt, in the runs, Kennedy, C. Roberts, Armstrong, Michaels, in the jumps, Bissell, Devereaux, Patterson, Finch, in the shot put, Betts, Bunce: in the pole vault, Hauenstein, Scheu. The first meet in which we entered a team was the Union Meet at Schenectady, on May 9Z0th. This, the longest trip any VVestern New York team has taken, was successful, both in enjoyment and in actual results. Nichols secured fourth place from fourteen competing schools, with twelve points. The events in which we scored were: 100-yard dash, Houpt, fourth, 880-yard run, Kennedy, second, 220- yard dash, Roberts, third, Robertson, fourth, 120-yard hurdles, Houpt, third, 4:40-yard dash, Roberts, third, broad jump, Devereaux, fourth. Nichols also won the relay race, but, as all the teams could not enter, this yielded no points. Paul Roberts won the cup presented the individual from Buffalo winning the most points. The 'team received the best of treatment and will probably repeat the trip this year. The next event of any importance on the schedule was our meet with Technical. This was the first dual meet held in Buffalo since the days when Central and Mzisten used to fight it out. Despite the fact that Technical had won the indoor relay race at the 74th Armory we expected to win this meet, but hardly by the overwhelming margin which finally resulted. VVe secured every first place and many seconds and thirds, the final score being Technical, 25 2-3-Nichols, 73 1-3. Technical fought gamely and, though we obtained the lead from the start, did not cease to fight for every point. Kennedy ran the half-mile in Q25 4-5, but some of the glamor was taken from this by the fact that he was barred from the Princeton lVIeet. Filbrick's time for the 220-yard dash-Q3 2-5 seconds-and Houpt's time for the 120'-yard low hurdles-14 3-5 seconds-were the sensations of the meet. Devereaux also 58 ' -r THE VERDUZXN NUNETEEN TWELVE ohm-ie"' did good work in the broad jump, going 19 feet, 3 inches, and Bissell's time for the 120-yard high hurdles-19 Q-5 seconds-was also promising. The point-winners in this meet received silver medals, bronze medals and ribbons for first, second and third places, respectively. June 3, 1911, the day on which the eyes of all had long been fixed as the date of the Princeton Meet, finally arrived. Before the meet we were admitted to have chances in some of the dashes, but were hardly expected to place better than fifth, on account of our weakness in the longer runs and the field events. Therefore, it came as a distinct surprise when, after one of the most spectacular meets in many years, we finally bested Nlasten Park- the winners of the previous year-for the possession of second place by one third of a point. Lafayette and lllasten had been fighting it out for first place, and we were not even considered until the last two track events-the 220- yard low hurdles and the Q20-yard dash. In these two events we secured thirteen points and finished with 21 1-3 points, 8 points behind Lafayette with Q9 1-3 points. This sudden ascent to second place from the sixth position was so unexpected as to furnish more of a sensation than the actual winning of the meet. Added to this were the facts that Armstrong broke the same record twice, and that Houpt and Bissell both equaled records. Our points were won as follows: Houpt won second place in the 100-yard dash, after being forced to run itoverthree times, because of the number of entriesq Bissell won first place in the 1Q0-yard high hurdle, equaling the record of 17 41-5 secondsg Armstrong broke the Princeton Meet record in the Q20-yard low hurdlesg his time being 28 1-5 seconds, Houpt captured second place in this eventg Filbrick covered himself with glory by winning the Q20-yard dash in 24 Q-5 seconds. Our only point-winner in the Held events was Bissell, who tied for third place in the high jump with two other men. Thus ended the season of 1911, bringing with it credit to the team down to the lowliest member, the school, and, last of all, to our coach-hir. Vokes. - .4 521 2. S: 551 if 5 . BISS ELL, HIGH-JUMPING THE ' VEIRUDUAN NHNETEEN TWELVE Zlnhnnr Swann NDOOR Work was commenced at the 741th Armory directly after the Christmas vacation. Several men turned out, and these worked faithfully until the day of the first meet, Jan- uary Qflth. The only man that placed was George Hughson, who Won the Q50-yard novice. The next meet came on February 17th. This was probably the most important meet of t.he season for Nichols, for in it the Relay Team defeated Cleveland University School in a Medley Relay Race. Our team was composed of the following men, who were never headed: QQO-GEORGE HUGHSON, Q5 seconds T40-VVILLIAM FILBRICK, 53 Q-5 seconds 660-VVALKER MICHAELS, 1 min. 34 Q-5 sec. 880W-JOHN PUTNAM, Q min. 5 3-5 sec. In this meet Chester Shepard Won the handicap pole vault, going 10 ft. 1 in. without. his handicap of 18 inches. Raymond Jones captured second place in the Q50-yard novice. In the third meet, on February QQd, Rogers Armstrong won second place in the 220-yard hurdles. Jack Putnam Won second place in the mile handicap in the fourth meet, on Ma1'ch 29th.

Games were played in every kind of weather imaginable, with the exception of a snowstorm. The first game was lost to Angola, a team very much our superior, and then defeat followed after defeat. But the players were not the kind that would give up in hopeless despair. It must be admitted that the natural ability that should be born in a man was lacking in the great majority of the Nichols players, but they were ready to be taught, and they were most ably taught by lVIr. Parsons. Nichols greatest victory was over De Veaux College, in which Nichols Won by the score of 16 to 41. The season was not a success, for the diamond has not yet come to be a strong- hold for Nichols teams. But the team derived a great deal of necessary experience from the season, and We all hope that this will show itself in the season of 1912. We also hope that there will be enough new men to help carry out the season as befits a Nichols team. 66 THE VERDHAN NHNETEEINJ TWELVE 'itauivhall Igrnaprrtn, 1912 The first signs of the 1912 baseball season were noticed lVIarch 7th, when Captain Kenefick sent out the first call for candidates. The teani this year will suffer the loss of lNIcDonnell, Finch, Scheu and Bunce, but the material on hand is expected to ill their places. Those who have so far reported for the teani are: Palmer, Elliott., VVende and Kenefick in the infield. L. Graves, VVhite, Schoenau, Conners, Gaylord, Nfanning in the outfield. N.

This is the same percentage as last year, but taking into consideration that the schedule was larger and the games harder, the team was a decided improvement over that of the pre- vious season. The two most important features of the season were the trip to New York and the series with Lafayette. On YVashington's Birthday the team left Buffalo for Syracuse, arriving there in the afternoon, in time to face St. John's School of Manlius, New York. The game was played on the Arena Rink-an indoor structure-which furnished excellent ice for the occasion. The teams were very closely matched, but because from the very first minute of pla.y every Nichols man got into it, the score resulted in Q points in our favor. The next day at Albany we played the Paw- ling School of Pawling, New York. The rink was not of the best, having very poor sideboards and being under the usual size. In this game the team showed excellent ability as a unit. Every one of our men knew his position and played itg as a result of this, we left Albany with a victory by four points to three. On Saturday we were on the St. Nicholas Rink in New York City at 7 A. hi., ready to face Harstrom School of Norwalk, Connecticut. Our men were not in the best of condition, but nevertheless we were able to hold our opponents to a tie score. This trip was a credit to the school for three reasons: it gave it a name, it showed that we were able to compete with the best schools in the country, and it proved that Nichols boys honor their school above all things. The series with Lafayette also showed the high spirit of the school. The first game was played on January 20th on our rink. ive were in fine shape, but Lafayette scored two points which gave them the victory. The next game was played on February 10th on Rumsey's Rink. In this our team came back, so to speak, and, although the score was very close, we outplayed our opponents, winning our first hockey game with them by a score of Q to 1. On Thursday, February 29th, after many delays, we played the final game. Our tealn was crippled by the absence of Thomas at goal, but notwithstanding this handicap, we succeeded in holding them to a tie score until about the last ten minutes of play, when they scored one point, winning the series. '72 'THE VERIEJHAN NHNETEEN TWELVEC Our other games were with much harder teams than those of the preceding year. The First game of the season was with the speedy team from Niagara-on-the-Lake. They were our superiors and beat us eight to three, but we feel that we could have given them a closer argument later in the season. In the next game we defeated Hamburg eight to nothing in a snowstorm and on very poor ice. One week later we succumbed to the Tuscorora Indians' superior, and clean team-play by a score of twelve to nothing. It is noticeable that three of the first four games were defeats, and that after these games we were only beaten once, showing the rallying power of the team after an un- THE TEAM favorable start. In our next game we beat the Cascadilla School from Ithaca by a score of nine to nothing. They were hardly our equals, in spite of the reputation with which they came. A week later Masten Park scored only one point to our ten. Shortly after. in a close and hard- fought game, Central held us to a score of two to one. Central played well, for the low score was not expected, despite the absence of two regulars. No one man on the team deserves extraordinary praise above the others. The team this season played as one man, every fellow doing his best. But a proper review of the season cannot be given without a mention of Captain Rumseyis able administration under the most difficult cir- . , cumstancesg of Betts' remarkable ability in being every- i where at the same time, and of Nelson Graves, rise from a mediocre player, with no experience, to one of the standbys of the team, especially in the Central game. Dold, Harmon and Thomas presented a nearly impregnable defense at all times. Wadswo1'th and VVhite cannot be given too much credit for hard-working players. hir. Bennett, our coach, is deserving of great credit for making a winning team out of uncertain material, and rarely with a second team with which to practice. Above all, we have the school to thank for its faithful support during the season.

Before the first game, the prospects were very bright-Potter, Nelson Graves, McDougal, Luther Graves and Scheu were out for the team. But hockey claimed Nelson Graves and Scheug Luther Graves was kept out by in- juries, and McDougal was unable to play more than three games, thus leaving but one regular, Potter, on whom to build a team. That founda.tion of the success of every team, a good center, was nowhere to be found, and one had to be constructed from indifferent material. The first game of the season we lost. to De Veaux. 33-22. A poorly chosen team in the first half allowed De Veaux to secure a commanding lead, but in the second half some substitutions were made. with the result that the team not only held De Veaux down, but bettered their score for the second half. The game with Springville wa.s a distinct disappointment, after holding a more experienced and heavier team 3-4 in the first half, Nichols could not keep the pace, and Springville won an easy victory, Q1-7. The game with Niagara Falls is again an account of what might have been. Had we played on a court of even ordinary equipment, with an unbiased referee, we should un- doubtedly have won. As it was, we led through the greater part of the game until a disagreement between the referee and a Nichols man allowed the Falls team to gain a respit.e. On the recommencement of the game Niagara Falls secured a two-point lead. The disagreement continued and ended with the Nichols player being dismissed from the game. Nichols im1nedia.tely objected with the result that the game was forfeited to Niagara Falls, 18-16. In the return game we presented a crippled team and lost, 341-15. In the ga.1ne with Technical Nichols played their best gimme of tlgle season and won, ghe last game of the year was with our old rival Central. VVith three new men p aying, t e team was no matci or entral, but died hard, losing 241-36. No one may be selected as the star of the team for there was none. hlilton Potter as captain played his steady, hard game and could always be depended upon. Spencer Clinton, besides managing the team, played regularly as a forward until compelled to stop. hIcDougal and Graves played consistently. but neither played more than three games. Curtis and Whitehead, two new men, played excellently, and with these, Potter and Elliott, the prospects fi next year should be very bright.. Bittner and lVIr. Gow performed their duties as coaches with their usual e ciency. 78 ly' THE PLUNGE ITL W W1 'l ' : 'll 1. X 4 'li , rl i 'yi ii. 1 4 ,,i,, l.

Also, the reader must not imagine that when the team plays, it stations a man every ten yards along the course, so as to reduce to a minimum the possibility of the ball going astray. Not for a 111l1'1lltCl Every man on that team is an expert golferg if proof is desired, see the sticks-no one can doubt their evidence. It would be difficult to discover a team more full of school spirit and loyalty than the Golf Team, for when it was announced that a picture of the team would be taken, did they hang back and refuse to be taken? Not a bit! They came nobly forward to a man, even though it meant the sacrificing of the precious minutes which they were so eager to devote to their classes. No one faltered, no one cast a longing glance back to the study-room, from which he had been dragged by the ruth- less hands of those who would take pictures. They were doing their duty, and nothing should interfere. Armed with their clubs, they formed themselves in line, and after a solemn procession, took places on the front steps. VVhen at the signal of the pho- tographer each player raised his club, it was an affecting sight. lVIany a tear dropped from the eyes of the onlookers Cwho, on account of the loyalty of the School to the team were few in numbersl, as they gazed on those manly youths. True, some of them seemed slightly unfamiliar with their clubs, and appeared to regard them as an improved model of a pool cue. But they were embarrassed and this was perfectly natural. For after a long and arduous preparation, they could hardly be expected to restrain their emotion when brought face to face with the fact that no longer would the School depend on them to bring home the bacon. The inquisitive observer might inquire where was the rest of the school, but we should scorn to answer such a question. He might suggest that the majority merely wished to get into the picture, but one glance at the determination expressed in Palmer-'s countenance, Bradley Gaylord's smile of cool contempt, Moore's wildly waving hair, or Putnam's apparatus should be sufficient to settle all doubts on that question. Certain it is that, if size counts for anything, the heroic Golf Team has laid the foundation for something big. - 82 GOLF TEAM 'THE VEEZDIILXN INIIIINIETEEINI TWELVE Hpprr Zlhxrmn Svquazh Inurnamvnt PATRRSON MR.

The total score of the Third Team was much larger than that of their opponents. In the other lines of sport Nichols was well representecl by the lower forms. The squash tournan1ent was one of the most successful ever knowng the fall tennis tournament brought forth matches which equaled in excitement those of the upper forms. In basketball there were teams of every size and shape-so many that they cannot be given space here. 93 THE VEIRZIDJJJAINITW : ff NnNiEfu'EEN TWELVE -A The indoor baseball matches were always interesting and, on the whole, very close, espe- cially those between the Goths and the Vandals. The Goths won the niajority Of these, and in so doing brought joy to the hearts of the Upper Form Goths, who have always been unfortu- nate in their meets with the Vandals.

In tlIe kindergarten and first five grades boys and girls are taught together. In the other grades Only girls are received, and they are prepared for entrance to college. The boys are transferred to the Nichols School. Since 1900 the Franklin School and the Nichols School have been united under one head. Previous to the union of the two Schools a primary department had been established at Nichols to prepare boys for admission to the regular college preparatory Work Of the upper school. In 1900 this primary department Was merged in the primary grades at Franklin. Boys pass through the kindergarten and first five grades at Franklin, and then enter Nichols Well equipped generally for the more advanced Work. The boys Of the present lifth grade at Franklin, most of whom Will come to Nichols in the fall, are: HERER THOMPSON ARCHBALD GEORGE NICHOLS, JR. WILLIAM IQOBERT BOOCOCK ROBERT WATSON POMEROY, JR.

Our policy of always having any event of a social nature on a fine day proved most agreeable to our parents and friends, for before the exercises were to begin the Assembly Hall was well filled with those who had come to see the last of the Class of 1911. The Fifth Form took upon their shoulders the duty of ushering, leaving to the Seniors the re- sponsibility of looking dignified, in which they satisfied the most particular. Mr. Carleton Sprague, President of the Board of Trustees, opened the exer- cises with an address to the Senior Class, basing his remarks on the experiences of Stanley, the explorer, in Africa. Mr. Sprague then presented the diplomas to the lucky ones who were entitled to receive them. Dr. Raymond of the First Presbyterian Church continued the exercises by reading a selection, which he followed by a prayer. 'fStand VVe United" and "American were then sung by the School. After the songs Mr. Allen spoke on the progress of the School and concluded his remarks by giving out the prizes for the year, the baseball, track, and tennis letters. The exercises over, John came to the rescue with some refreshments, and no one needed an invitation to respond to these. When everyone had been satisfied, the assemblage adjourned to the baseball field to witness the game between the Alumni and the School Team. The old Nichols men were out for revenge because of their defeat of the previous yearg so, in order to cause no hard feeling, we let them have the game, 3 to 0. This satisfied everybody, even the team, who were anxious to change their clothes and attack the remainder of the refreshments. After the last farewell had been said and the last hand shaken, the Class of 1911 left with a twinge of regret marring their happiness at the thought that they were never to return, except as Alumni-and without this feeling, no Commence- ment is an entire success. 100 'TCHEA VERDHAN NHNETEEN TWELVE Srhnlarnhip 1316225 fur Thr Huw: 19111-11 CLASSICAL-JAMES RICHMOND INGHAM LATIN SCIENTIFIC?-THOMAS PENNEY, JR.

For on one point all those present were agreed, and that was as to the good time they were hav- ing. Although the evening at Hrst bade fair to be cold, a change in temperature made the atmosphere ust right. The guests began arriving at half past eight, and by nine o,clock nearly two hundred were present. All roads seemed to lead to Nichols, judging by the steady stream of automobiles which poured in the direction of the school. Because the evening was a little chilly for some, bright fires were lighted in Mr. Nichols, room and the library. The couches placed about the fires made these rooms nearly as popular as the Assembly Hall, which had been converted into a ball-room. Dancing commenced about a quarter of nine to the music of an excellent orchestra, concealed behind palms and bay trees in a corner of the hall. The chaperons were lVIrs. lVIoncrieff, M1's. Hauenstein, lVIrs. Allen and Mrs. M311H. At half past eleven supper was announced, and everyone went over to the Gymnasium. Here a delightful surprise met all eyes. Running track and apparatus were no longer to be seen, for the.Gym had been completely transformed t.o make a grape arbor. Vines clambered over the lattice arrangement and made a pretty setting for the small tables adorned with green-shaded candles. Large lanterns were hung overhead to add brilliancy to the effect. Although the entire assemblage was not able to be accommodated at one sitting, no one was inconvenienced, and a most excellent supper was enjoyed. At twelve ofclock dancing was resumed and continued until the strains of "Home, Sweet Homev gave the signal for departure. Thus ended the most delightful and enjoyable entertainment in the history of the School. 102 SHEPARD Rhxx WILKINSON K EN 1-:NCK B14:'r'1's DANCE COMMITTEE Ihr Zlntvr-High Svrhnnl Efnnthall Einnrr N the evening of December sixteenth the Football Team entertained the members of the four high school teams at a banquet given in the school dining-room. The visitors began to arrive about eight oiclock, and soon fifty or sixty had assembled. A suggestion that a tour of the school and gym be made met hearty approval. Our guests were much interested in what we had to show, and if their surprise and approval be any criterion, we do not half appreciate our equipment, both in the school and in the gymnasium. After taking a dip in the plunge, all adjourned to the dining room where a repast of sandwiches, lemonade, pies and cakes had been prepared. In the course of the dinner Mr. Wright gave out several favors that were take-offs on the past season's work. Among them was a lamb, a football, a hammer, a safe, a music box and a pair of scales. These were appropriately dis- tributed, each with a line on the weak or strong points of the recipient. Wlien no more food remained, Mr. Stuckey briefly spoke on sportsmanship between the high schools. About half past ten the party broke up with the best of feeling pervading an assemblage of those who had been the bitterest rivals all fall, and with the con- viction that the first dinner of this nature had been an unqualified success. is lk lk lk Pk bk On the evening of December fifth VVilliam Decker entertained the members of the team at his home. All were on time, as is usual at these affairs, and after everyone had shaken hands, the fellows retired to the dining-room and took their places. At each plate was a favor in the form of a small football, while the center of the table, which was banked with ferns, contained several larger ones. The dinner was interrupted by Captain Betts, who suggested that a new Captain be elected. This was put in the form of a motion and passed. The nominations followed, and by the Hnal ballot, Filbrick was elected. Captain F ilbrick responded with a few words, and then ex-Captain Betts made 1044 'THE VEEDUAN INIHNETEEN 'TWELVE a short speech at the end of which he presented lVIr. Stuckey with a gold football on a Watchfob, as a present from the team of .1911. lVIr'. Stuckey expressed his appreciation of the gift in a few characteristic words. The evening was closed with an exciting game of "Parlor Hot-Hand, " after which all limped home, but in the best of spirits. Flf PIC Plf elf Pls Pk December twentieth the team journeyed to Tonawanda, not to play a game, but to enjoy another evening, this time as the guests of Mr. Ayrault. The ride down had provided a hearty appetite, and an excellent dinner, devoidkand happily for most of the fellows-of speeches, was much enjoyed. A new feature was introduced at this dinner, for at each plate a photograph of the team had been placed, A more useful or interesting favor could hardly have been provided for the fellows to carry away with them. After the dinner some adjourned to the pool room, but the parlor was also very popular, for here Mr. VVright and others performed feats of agility and dexterity CPD most startling. The party broke up at 10 o'clock, and Jack was voted a success as an entertainer. Pls Pls ik Pls Pls 2l4 This section would not be complete without a mention of Jack Kennedyis dinner, which, although it occurred during the past school year, may be included here. The dinner took place June fifteenth at the University Club and was given in honor of the Track Team. As is natural at an affair of this character, the main topic of conver- sation was the past season, and many a race was run over, but this did not cause a most excellent dinner to be neg- ected. After a few speeches, mostly of the "next year" variety, the party adjourned about half past ten o'clock. Q ra Skating 152111125 N January Q7'th the Hockey Team gave the first of two skating parties on the school rink. The main object of these parties was to raise money for the proposed trip of the Hockey Team to New York. The night was clear, and cold enough to make con- stant tmotion necessary for comfort. Although we had defeated Cascadilla that afternoon on the same ice, it was not much im- paired, and nobody was particular. About sixty boys and girls came out and thoroughly enjoyed themselves racing and playing tag or crack-the-whip. About ten o'clock we went reluctantly in- doors, where bright fires had been lighted in the office, Mr. Nichols, room, and the Library. Soon after an excellent orches- tra began playing, and by the time all were in, John, with his corps of assistants, the Hockey Team, served chocolate, sand- wiches, ice cream and cake to the hungry company. After supper everyone went into the Assembly Hall, which had been prepared for dancing. About twelve o'clock the party broke up, and we went home with nothing but praise for the Hockey Team management. The second party on February 3d was much the same as the first, though possibly fewer a.ttended. Besides the pleasure they gave to our guests, the Enancial results must be included in the success of these parties, for the Hockey trip otherwise could hardly have been afforded. 106 :LH cym- Olnmmiiiven Seniur Hin Qlnmniiitrr Clzczfirmcm, CARLETON BETTS SPENCER CLINTON IXOCHFORD HARMON 3lu11in1' Iain Glummiiime ClZClQT'I'77ZCL77, RALPH DOLD WILLIAM CONNERS CHESTER SHEPARD Elfnnihnll Binnrr Olnmmittre Uhaiwnan, NELSON GRAVES NIR.

At one o'clock the gong sounded, and all those who had not been excused early, adjourned to the Assembly Hall, which had for the time been changed into a dining-room. The change was so successful that many expressed the wish that it might remain in that capacity. However, when John entered carrying a roasted pig among the tables, which were arranged in the shape of the Greek letter Pi Cnot eatablel, all forgot the beauty of the room in admiring the well browned porker. The pig, together with plenty of turkey, celery, cranberry sauce, mashed pota- toes, peas, mince pie and an assortment of nuts and raisins, made a delicious repast, which all enjoyed. During the meal many songs were sung and several men were cheered. Following the dinner, the paraders and band retired to the Gym and there robed themselves. Soon after, they issued forth, preceded by the band and marched around the field. The future brass-band artists were Cohn, Decker, Filbrick, Harmon, Putnam, Ross and Scheu. After the parade numerous pictures were taken,and then the teams' for the tug-of-war collected. The Fifth Form came back after their defeat of last year and won, after a strenuous tug. The teams were composed of the following: Sixth Form: Betts, Decker, Jones, Kenefick, Harmon, Palmer, Putnam, Ross, Rumsey, Wilkinson. Fifth Form: Ayrault, Cohn, Dold, Filbrick, Graves, McDougal, Roberts, Scheu, Schmidt, Thomas. Following the tug-of-war, all adjourned to the field, where underneath the goal posts were two barrels holding flour, tied in packages just large enough to throw. These were defended by the Fifth Form. The Seniors lined up on the 30-yard line, and at a given signal attacked the enemy. After a hard fight they secured the flour and put the Juniors to rout. The flour fight was followed by the banner fight. The Seniors succeeded in defending the pennant. Then came the "greased-pign chase. The animal, driven by the royal chasers, Ross and Dold, came onto the field and, after a lot of excitement was finally secured. This event ended a most enjoyable day, which after two successful performances may be regarded as a fixture in the events of the year. - is THE BANNER FIGHT THE TUG-OF-WAR ,-f. 'A' 4 V' QQ?

Mr. Vilelcher told of the bad influence of tobacco, especially upon young boys. He was very much in earnest, but he was too narrow-minded in his views and made statements which were far too sweeping. N'OVEMBER The first illustrated lecture came on November Qlst. With an interesting subject-"Egypt"-and excellent pictures, Dr. Putnam Cady gave the School a very instructive hour. First, he showed photographs of the Nile Valley and explained Why the Nile was prayed to as a god by the ancient Egyptians. Then he showed the massive ruins of ancient Karnak and Thebes. We of the twentieth century imagine that we are far ahead of bygone times, and yet the Egyptians equalled and often excelled us in many ways. DECEMBER Mr. Ernst Hermann, Superintendent of Physical Instruction in the Cambridge Public Schools, on December 7th gave a short talk on "Health H He emphasized the value of regular exercise and congratulated us on the advantages we had at school. The most noticeable point in his lecture was the great value he attached to Hwarming up" before a game, in order not to put too sudden a strain upon the heart. The School was very much pleased to hear from the Reverend lvlalcolm S. Taylor what the Nichols School Scholarship did last year at the Paterson School for Boys in North Carolina. lilr. Taylor told of the boy who had been cared for by our contribution of the previous year. Though one of the most unpromising when he entered, the boy has now become most skillful in farm Work, has made several small inventions for agricultural implements and has become one of the best boys in the Paterson School. . On the day preceding Christmas Vacation, December Q2d, Reverend Doctor Andrew V. V. Raymond gave a very inspiring talk. He chose as his subject "The Spirit of Christmasi' and urged us to make Christmastide not only a season of peace and happiness among ourselves, but also among the poor. 124 JANUARY The first talk of the new year was given on January 25th, by Mr. Alexander, a member of the campaign team of the "Men and Religion Forward Movement. " He was preceded by Mr. G. Barrett Rich, who told of the old Nichols School. Then Mr. Alexander told of the old English Preparatory Schools and the excellent preparation for the battle of life that they gave. He then told something of the "Boy Seoutsf' VVith a fund of excellent stories and anecdotes, lVIr. Alexander kept the fellows laughing most of the time and was greatly appreciated. FEBRUARY Wfith the One Hundredth Anniversary of Charles Dickens only two days off, on February 5th Mr. Underhill, the great interpreter of Dickens, gave the School a novel treat. Choosing a short and little-known story by Dickens, he gave us a dramatic reading. Mr. Underhill expressed most remarkably the pathos and humor of the story and brought Dickens' works nearer the hearts of all his audience. On February 13th, the Reverend Doctor Williain Elliot Griflis gave a very interesting talk on "The State of Affairs in China. 3' Dr. Griftis, who was the first white man to live under the old feudal system in Japan, organized the American School System in China. He said that he believed that the Japanese and Chinese were mentally and physically our equals. Dr. Griffis closed his lecture by comparing Yuan Shi Kai with Dr. Sun Yat Sen. The first college representative to address the School this year was President Garfield of VVilliams College. He said that every fellow should go out for some form of athletics and praised the idea of intramural contests. But President Garfield advised us not to make the mistake of putting athletics ahead of the things which would be of more benefit to us in after life. On February 28th, President Hadley of Yale University made a short address to the School. He said that the great object of our school and college life should be the preparation for public service and good citizenship. President Hadley urged us to be broad-minded, and said that there was a great chance for this in our school life. T TVIARCH On the lst of Ma1'ch, Dr. Hume, of the Class of ,9'7, Yale, gave an extremely interesting illustrated lecture on China. Dr. Hume is a member of the Faculty of Yale College in China and, coming but recently from that country, was able to show us excellent scenes from the firing line of the recent revolution. Dr. Hume ended his lecture with a word of praise for Dr. Sun Yat Sen, the George Vifashington of China. On lVIarch 11th, Dean Penniman of the University of Pennsylvania addressed us. He urged us to prepare our- selves well in our studies, as this counted for a great deal. He told of the seriousness of many phases of college life and of the help that many Pennsylvania students are giving to the poor, through settlement work. The third college president to address us this year was President Rhees of Rochester University, who spoke on lVIarch Q2d. He admired the principles that Nichols stands for and extolled highly the study of the classics. Mr. Shields, President of the Sportsrnen's League of America, gave an illustrated lecture on March ith. Ilis lecture was about our American wild animals and their preservation. lXIr. Shields urged us to hunt with a camcra instead of a gun, and showed us many of his photographs, which were remarkably fine. Soon after, lVIr. ivaldron visited the School and congratulated us on its growth. There happening to lac a dclmalc that day, lVIr. VValdron told us a. little about debating and urged us to go into it, for theability to speakinpuhlic is very useful in college. 125 if N ci X 1-Ns is I f x v .

Breathes there a man with soul so dead VVho never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land! 100. The paths of glory lead but to the grave. After prolonged discussion these answers were adjudged more Witty than true, more worthy to be avoided than believed. Engla nd, for instance, is too near democracy to allow us to credit the assertion that George IX is now ruling her. On the other hand, however, history may repeat itself, nobody likes to think that Louis VIII is seated on the throne of France: and even Italy is not sunny and optimistic enough to accept the shade of Leopold for her king. In our own country we trust that Mr. Knox will not take unibrage at the claim by one young statesman that John Hays Hammond is Secretary of State. If he does, what will the clarion Vhamp Clark say when he finds a well-informed youth who thinks Gompers is Speaker and Champ himself relegated to the paltry leadership of 'Tammany Hall? To turn for a moment from political fame. why should not folonel Goethals come north if American boys think his eliiel' c-laiin to glory ubravery in war" or the "Mexican Rebellion?" Or why should not the late Mr. Pulitzer turn over in his grave lo realize that, world figure as he was, he would be remembered only as a beer manufacturer and-inglorious conclusion!-leader of the New York Philharmonic? Ivith such reversals of transitory renown, one must not wonder that hlme. Curie was famous in the French Revolution. or that an oriental transmigration has made ol' 'I'seliaikowski a successor to the King of China. Still, in spite of the rec-ent agita- tion to move the Vatican hither, we ought in eonunon lli'f'f'IIt'1V to Tae visiifeouais T NHNETEENPTPWELVME warn the instigators not to look for it in Egypt, as one wise youth declares it is to be found, any more than we are to seek Smyrna there or in Tripoli or in Italy. Ireland, Scotland and Germany have many a mighty mang but no satisfactory evidence has yet been adduced that any one of these possesses the Pillars of Hercules. And, while on the topic of locality, it is hardly fair, when one reflects upon Frederic Almy's lifelong ideal, to place the Buffalo Charity Organi- zation Society on Main Street near the city line. Nor is it less invidious to declare that our own beloved Grosvenor Library is in France. Perhaps no philosopher of our time will be more talked about then Monsieur Bergson: but what greater indignity could be done his noble theory of the flux of personality than to rest his fame on his going through the Whirlpool Rapids in a motor boat, as one boy solemnly said? Mr. Wfhistler, too, would, we venture to think, take it ungraeefully to be called famous as a composer. though his nocturnes and symphonies are in a way to blame, we admit. This reminds us that the next question led a probable spiritualist to aver that Mommsen "will give a lecture at the Natural Science Society tonight. In James J. Hill's case we see no cause for offense that he is labeled "a railroad magnet. " More or less surprise awaits the announcement that an aerial is a bird, that caviar is a grasslike plant, that a seislnograph is either an instrument for Hsounding the ocean" or "a machine for measur- ing the pulse of a supposed lawbreaker, " or " a moving picture that talks." Moreover, those versed in the Mosaic law will not yet concede that the Eighth Commandment says "Thou shalt not killu or "Rest on Sundayf, We fear also that these authorities would reject the statement that the opening line of the Q3d Psalm is "Our Father who art in heaven, " as well as the conjectures that Jesus rebuked Jezebel, that King Pharaoh held the wealth of the Montezumas, and that the Pentateuch is a painting. Of more con- cern, however, is the illuminating quip that the Wigs dominate politics in Canada, and the appalling discovery that we have 49 Justices of the Supreme Court, to saynothing of the irreverent sallies 12 which characterized a movable feast as variously "a lunch wagon,'l "a bread line" and "a standing luncheon." As if foreseeing this lapse from grace, one moral enthusiast called Monte Carlo the For- bidden Counfry, while another wrote down Woodrow Wiilson as a. "Great Gospel VVorshipper." Perhaps this trace of modernism in matters divine led to the assertion that Oliver Twist sold his birth- right for a mess of pottageg but none save an English wag would tempt the Hague Tribunal with the brutal admission that Gibraltar is "a fort used as a whaling station." The Labrador Mission, according to the young informants, is bound to revive an old controversy, since rival interests place in charge there both Dr. Cook and Peary. Puccini and Leoncavallo have not deserved so ill in their later works as to haveAbbatemaggio of the Camorra made their peer. And let us also be conservative enough not to assign the ninth symphony to Sousa or to Moses and Don Quixote to Spencer, Kipling or Scott. The crowning stroke of boyhood ignorance, from which the dazed examiners have not yet wholly recovered, was given in the answer that the New York Giants were the champions in professional baseball, for the season.

THE vEEEnaai NUNETEEN TWELVE GBM GBM nf ang One evening a track-walker was patrolling a section of track in Eastern Pennsylvania, over which the traffic is heavy at most hours of the day. He had finished his inspection and, finding everything in good condition, decided to go home by a short cut, which led over a single-track railway bridge. Such a procedure is always dangerous, but the man was acquainted with the schedules and, if worst should come to worst, he always could signal the ap- proaching train with his lantern. It was dark when he reached the bridge, but he decided to cross over, even though he was in imminent danger of slipping between the ties. However, with the assistance of his lantern he had nearly finished his perilous undertaking when he was alarmed by the sudden flickering and then the extinguishing of his lantern. This was nothing to the terror which assailcd him when he heard the whistle of a train on the point of leaving the town. It was coming towards him, would be on the bridge in a few minutes and what was he to do? There was but one thing to do, as the bridge had no side- rail, and that was to drop down and cling to one of the supports until the train should pass. His time was shortg already the glare of the headlight was seen piercing the night, and the terror-stricken man knew by certain familiar signs that it was a freight train and in all probability a long one that was approaching. He began to slide down between two of the ties, but in the dark he could not see the crossbeam, which, as a matter of fact, met some feet away from him. There was nothing on which to place his feet: consequently, he was forced to sustain himself by his hands alone. The train was now over his head, rumbling slowly along, when the screeching of brakes suddenly announced that it had stopped. The engineer was about a quarter of an hour completing his repairs and was about to start when he was surprised by a. muffled cry and, a few minutes later, the sound of a splash below. Then the thought came to him that he had been hearing strange noises while repairing the engine, but he had been unable to distinguish them above the hiss of boilers. The next morning he sa.w in staring headlines that the body of a railway employee had been 'found on the banks of the Schuylkill River, a few miles below the railroad bridge. L. P. G.,'l2. IQ!! THIEIW VERIDDHAN NHINHETEIEN TWELVEI A Zliinh Svturg One day last spring as I was going to school I met about five fellows and asked them where they were going, because they were not headed for school. They replied that they were going to Fort Erie and invited me to skip school with them. I accepted with pleasure and proceeded to the ferry. VVhen We got on the other side of the river, we put our coats in the customs office. Then we walked up to Fort Erie and spent. the morning there playing in the amusement park. Of course, We came home in time to make good connections after school hours. The only reason this is headed "A Fish Storyi' is because there Were no fish caught-even the teachers didn't catch on. R. P.,,1Q 130 Great lfliarnurrg CHAOS AT LAST LOCATED BUFFALO, JAN. 31.-George Hughson, a Nichols student, has finally located Chaos. The question arose in Mr. Mitchell's class and chaos was placed all over the globe, but no o11e seemed to know for sure. One scholar said he thought it was near London, England. At last Hughson arose and declared that "Tchaos,,' as he pronounced it, was in China. This decision should prove relieving to Mr. Roosevelt or English Parliament members, who 'may have been imagining that they were the center of that much-mooted region.

Football practice had commenced a week before, but now was on in earnest, Many new faces appeared in the depleted ranks of the 1910 team, strangely enough preferring, as one of the papers said, "to pass the afternoons on the gridiron in place of the classroom!" On Friday hir. Cate left us and a few days later hir. Aikmann joined the ranks of the Faculty. On Wednesday Angola came and saw, but did not conquer, for We started the new year right by winning SQ-0. On the following Saturday Attica Was also vanquished, 16-0. Lbrtnhvr ltlonday the Qd brought hir. Wlelcher with the first lecture of the new year. A few days later '6Bill,, Boyle felt. the call of fortune and departed, leaving no inconsiderable vacancy, as the oft-complaining steam heaters might testify. Saturday the 7th saw the third straight victory on Nichols F ield, when the Football Team defeated Springville, 30-O. A week later, after a bitterly con- tested battle in which We were leading for three periods, ltlasten Park beat us 15-6. It was a heart-breaker, but not without its lesson. Next week saw the finish of the Tennis Tournament, with Rumsey, Knox 158 Trash vsaouaniiii' ' Dniunusrisisau TWELVE and Butler the winners of their respective divisions. Mr. Stuckey had been holding a new song under cover and about this time he "sprung" it. It met with the approval of all and made a decided hit. On Saturday 21st the football team took revenge for the Masten game on the Niagara Falls team, to the tune of 33-0. Then we all felt better. Next Week Rumsey was elected Goth Captain, he appointed N. Graves Lieutenant. Saturday the Q8th Dunkirk came down with a confident bearing, which the football team deemed wise to efface, and incidentally wipe out an old score. This was done to everybody's satisfaction by a score of 11-0. On the next to the last day of the month, Doctor Winfield Scott Hall spoke to the Upper Forms. A Nnnemhrr W ,, November 45th brought probably the most feared game of the season-that I with Lafayette. To say the team covered itself with glory in this game would I wifiwh Im be expressing it mildly, when one reflects that it emerged with a score of only 6-0 M against them, and that by a lucky chance. ., - f ,' Election Day returned a victory for the Republicans by a scanty margin. Q. mf! Q The result of the voting was VVard, 46-Jerge, 42. ' ff 'f . -I The followin Saturday the team met its match in Technical, who nut u a WZ ,Alf , g . . I . p I ' f gf. ' plucky fight. Neither side could score, though we were very near It several tlmesg lv and the game was slow, due to the unseasonably warm weather. Saturday the 18th brought the final game of the year, that with our dear old enemy Central. As an added inducement for victory was the fact that we needed the game in order to break the tie with Technical for fourth place in the Har- vard Cup race. The game was desperately fought in a blinding snowstorm. The tide of battle scesawed back and forth, according as each side gained possession of the wind, but we were not to be beaten and, although we were scored on first, we finally won out, Ile-5, thus closing the season in the proper manner. The total score for the season Was Nichols 139, Opponents 26. This was most satisfactory, considering the lightness of thc men and the fact that a second team was not always available. 11 159 'THE VERDUAN NHNETEEN TWELVE Dr. Putnam Cady addressed the School on "Egypt" on hlonday the Qlst. On the next day the second team concluded their season by winning a hard-fought game from the Lafayette Juniors. On Wednesday the lVIandolin Club got toget.her and proceeded to make life miserable for the less talented part of the School. Next day school adjourned for the Thanksgiving recess-short, but none the less enjoyable. ' W iElrrr111hrr L, On hionday the ith we returned, comforting ourselves with the thought lg a .ig that Christmas was only three weeks away. Soon after the Gym began to wake : K ffr- up, as the aspirants for basketball and track aroused its dim interior. if 4 The Junior Mandolin Club followed the example set by their elders and betters, and held their first rehearsal on the sixth. The same day the Gym tests began, 1 and many who had never known they had arms or legs were glad to make Q F their acquaintance. The day after the School listened with great appreciation ky '- pf" to hir. Ernest Herrman. Z On Friday the Information Test descended without Warning, like a bolt from g I , I X a clear sky, or a handful of demerits. It is doubtful whether more new questions I W' Q Z were not raised by the answers than the original queries propounded. The prizes " , - i were awarded on the following Tuesday, and the somewhat surprised recipients , , X V Tl were regarded with awe and veneration by the less fortunate. 5.c, ,X X, 6 J Z A week later the School deemed it more advisable to give than to receive, ind straightway made a donation to the Charity Organization Society. On the night of the 16th, the football team gave a banquet to the football teams of the High Schools, which proved most successful. Friday the QQd saw the last demerit chalked up before the School dispersed for a much needed rest, after the awarding of the football "USM and Numerals. 160 0 THE VEFEIDUAN NUNETEEN TWELVE mi XXV f . 6 if t ' . , 'D t f it . I ve fdanuarg On Monday, January 8th, we returned to school after safely passing through the rigors of a severe vacation. Several expressed surprise at the hours, apparently believing that they should be from 9 P. M. to 3:95 A. M. This soon passed away and the school accustomed itself to routine. The basketball team evidently did not recover so easily from the effects of the vacation for on Friday they were defeated by De Vemux College 33-21. 'lhe hockey team symptthifing with them on Saturd my lost to the Niagara Juniors by ft score of 8-3.

The basketball team could not keep the pace, and on Friday lost to Springville, Q1-7. Saturday the Q0th, a day long awaited as the date of the first game with Lafayette, arrived on time, but not with the result expected. Lafayette was not to be denied and won, Qe-0. On the next Wednesday the basketball team journeyed out of town to play.Niagara Falls. The game was so closely contested as to give rise to a disagreement, which resulted in the game being forfeited to Niagara Falls, 18-16. On the same day the hockey team fell before the superior team-play of the Tuscarora Indians, by a score of IQ-0. Thursday the 925th the School was addressed by lVIessrs. Rich and Alexander of the Ntens Religion Forward Movement. On Friday the Midyear Examinations commenced. The preference of many for shirts with starched cuffs, on this day was very noticeable. A The hockey team played the Cascadilla School from Ithaca on Saturday. After the dust cleared away twe can think of no other similej, we were found to be the victors by a score of 9-0. That evening the hoc-kcy team gave a skating party-dance to raise expenses for the approaching hockey trip, at which everyone had a good time. Tuesday the 30th saw the close of Exams to which the School resigned itself with a noble fortitude quite remarkable. 161 tae ' vsaouawi . rsiuivitsteisiui TWELVE A f? WZ Zlirhruarg 75 The Niagara Falls basketball team fully upheld its reputation by defeating Q., M us 35-14 on Friday the Qd. The ice still favored us, and on Saturday we beat . 27 lVIasten Park, 10-1. "fig On lVIonday the 5th Mr. Underhill recited to us from Dickens, and on the 'HAI M 9th the School gave a short celebration in memory of Dickens, whom we all honor 7 I1 4 for not writing anything like the Aeneid or lVIilton. Z The Mandolin Club charmed our ears with its soulful strains on Thursday. - . A -T '6Strains" is here used in its original sense. X X J ' jf On Friday the 9th the basketball team displayed a rare and fleeting glimpse - 1 f ,f of its real worth by defeating Technical, 42-QQ. The hockey team, not to be f outdone, on the next day fell upon Lafayette and, after a nip-and-tuck battle, f Ai- tT-5 ' G-i f finally emerged the victors by the margin of Q-1. Dr. William Elliot Griffin on Tuesday the 13th gave a lecture to the School on "China," Central,s hockey team gave us a hard battle on the following Saturday, and we were able only to win out in an extra-inning game by a score of 2-1. That evening at the 74th Armory the Relay Team won its first laurels by defeating the Cleveland University School in a medley relay. Wle also received first place in the pole vault and second in the 250-yard novice. President Garfield of Willizims College spoke to the School on ltlonday the 19th. Central beat us in basket- ball by a score of 36-24 on Wednesday. On Wasliington's Birthday, in a blinding snowstorm, the hockey team set off on its Eastern trip. In the afternoon they met and defeated St. Johns by a score of 2-0-on the Arena Rink, Syracuse. Friday they played Pawling in Albany, owing to a scarcity of ice in the vicinity of Greenwich, Conn. In the best played game of the year we emerged victorious, 4-3. On Saturday the team played on the famous St. Nicholas Rink in New York. The team must have been overcome by the sight of New Yorkers playing hockey at 7 A. NI., for they did not play up to form, and the game resulted in a 1-1 tie. They returned Mondiry morning with a record of which any team might be proud. On Tuesday President Hadley of Yale University explained to us the purpose for which we are attending school. He should have answered the questions of many. 162 THE VEEIDHAN NUNETEEN TWELVE After many postponements the deciding game of the series with Lafayette, and the final game of the season, was played on our own rink on Thursday the 29th. VVe played hard, but Lafayette played harder in the first part of the second half, and made the only score of the game. Jlflarrh :va yf Dr. Hume of Yale,'9'7,gave an illustrated lecture on "China,' on lVIarch lst. X fill" Un the following hlonday Mr. Shields lectured to the School on "The Preservation . of1Vild Game." On the 7th, lVIr. Aikmann put his long arms to good service and secured first 5 if honors in the Squash Tournament by defeating Mr. Parsons. Next day was held ly W I the first debate in the Nichols School. After a hard fight, lVIr. Goetz's Fifth Form I' ff I N English won out against Mr. Stuckey's division. On the same day Mr. Waldron 1 mxsx visited the School and gave a short address to the fellows. In the afternoon Mr. A-1 - -fy - Nichols, Third Form English won their debate. I D u if Dean Pennnnan of the University of Pennsylvania gave an interesting ad- W LLSM - L.-- E., Lf ,dress to the School on the 11th. Ralph Dold was elected 1913 Hockey Captain on the same day, and shortly after spring track training began. Next week the Lower School Goths beat the Vandals in a track meet, and several indoor baseball games. Later they united and gave the swimming team from School 56 a sound beating. On Friday the 22d, the Upper School Vandals retrieved some of their lost laurels by beating up the Goths, 36-26 in a track QE ,414 ,. J meet. On the same day President Rhees of Rochester University gave a thought- W-0 inducing talk to the School. April After a long siege of study the Easter vacation, beginning April 4-th, was joy- ! fully welcomed by the School. The Easter Dance came on the 9th, and it was some dance. Everyone who could scrape up the entrance fee and a waiter's suit was there, and thoroughly enjoyed himself. School recommenced on the 15th. and here the Retrospect for the year 1911-1912 ends. A short month and a half is before us, with Commencement Day looming up only too near. It has been a af successful year, and everyone who has taken part in this success may have good 13- reason to be proud. -an lf 2 2 EUWA Qi , I, be- ' 163 TEE VEEEUAE NHNETEEN TWELVE Arknnmlvhgmrniz U The Editors desire tO express their thzuiks tO the followiug for their Vahleible advice O1 assistance towards the preparing Of this Voluniez MR.

VVe can trace the causeg and we can partially picture the effect. x x Let us take, merely as an example, separating it from all the rest-one big, little fact. x Every Cadillac piston and every Cadillae cylinder is interchangeable with every other Cadillac piston: and every other x Cadillac cylinder. More than 400 essentially accurate dimensions in Cadillac parts are measured down to one one-thousandth x of an inch. x Johannson, of Eskelstuna, Sweden, is the inventor of the most wonderful system of limit gauges for infinitesimally fine x x measurements the world has ever seen-gauges which are accurate to the one ten-thousandth part of an inch. x x The Cadillac Company is, and has been for years, the world's foremost exponent of its own: and of the Johannson system. x Cadillac adherence to unexampled accuracy ante-dates the Johannson discovery. It goes back forty years to its incep- x tion-ten years in its application to the Cadillac car. x So here you have the primal cause-the source of that world-wide, mysterious Cadillac enthusiasm-the despair of ears which may look like. but are not like the Cadillacg because they have not wrapped up in them thc fervor and the life-time x devotion inspired by an ideal. x QC OTHER MODELS: Qc x Four Passenger x Phaeton, S1800 x T - Four Passenger x QQ Ollflng Torpedo, S1900 x x Two Passenger x Car, S X Roadster, S1800 x fglg, Four Passenger x x xi' E Coupe, S2250 x . 1 A XX' Seven Passenger E g , Limousine, 953250 E X Ellicott and Tupper Streets Buffalo, N.

This new process is unlike any other Carpet-Cleaning method that has ever been introduced. Years ago 929 aa it was thc custom to "Beat the Life" out of Carpets over the back fence, then the Automatic Carpet Beater at mag came into prominence and, being more effective than the hand-method, reduced the life and service-giving QQ RQ qualities of the ordinary Carpet down to a few short years. The Carpet Sweeper then came forward and, 3? while it is handy and convenient, it removes the nap, and doing so detracts from the natural beauty of every 5? ag Carpet and Rug. Next came the Vacuum Cleaner, heralded as the 20th Century wonder-the marvel of the ale sis age, etc. But we know and you know that the basic principle underlying the Vacuum Cleaning system proves it to be a fabric destroyer. It sucks-sucks out the dust, dirt, germs and, at the same time, sucks out, thread ale by thread, the nappy fabric of which carpets and rugs are made. The Compressed Air Blowing Process is 5? ag entirely different. lt blows through-carrying every particle of dust and dirt with it-but the air force is so ae gg evenly distributed that it effectively removes all foreign substances without affecting the fabric in the least.. RQ ag The Compressed Air Blowing Process is the most thorough and most satisfactory Carpet and Rug Clean- i ing Method in the lvorld todayg BECAUSE it cleans without injuring the fabric. E Karak?

These tanks are in turn enclosed, the space between the tanlc and box being filled with nonconducting material, to prevent change in teinperature of the water during transportation. Before being loaded at the springs, these tanks are filled with steam at a pressure of from eight to ten pounds, and this pressure is maintained from forty-five to sixty minutes. Such pressure, as proven by repeated luborzitery tests, insures a sterile container, We own thirty-nine of these cars, built for this special service, which have been used for no other purpose than the transportation of Great Bear Spring W'ater. In the process of unloading, only filtered air enters these cars. Each bottling department is under the immediate supervision of a superintendent who has had special training in sanitation and hygiene, and who thoroughly appreciates the necessity of maintaining strictly sanitary conditions. All bottles are Washed, first on the outside, then on the inside, with a hot solution applied by a rapidly revolving rubber brush, :md are then given a final rinsing with fresh Great Bear Spring VVater. They are then placed in trays in an inverted position and pass into the sterllizer, Where for about one-half hour they are subjected to a temperature varying from 2000 to 2250 F. After coming from the sterilizer the bottles remain in the trays until cool. They are then placefl in cases and immediately filled, stoppered and sealed. All stoppers and corks are sterilized, so that nothing but a sterile surface comes in contact with the Water. The sterilization of all containers is the prime essential of a perfect product. Our apparatus for sterilizing bottles is unique, and has proven to be uniformly effective by repeated laboratory tests. This apparatus was patented by 21 member of this c-ompzuiy, and is used exclusively by it. After twenty-four years spent in close study of this business, We still constantlyaiin toimprove our metliods. We know of no cem- petitive company which maintainsalaboratory,orwhichhas facilities for the handling of water, equal to those possessed by this compzuiy.
