Professor of Military Science and Tactics As a slight mark, of esteem and respect of the Corps of Cadets, this the eleventh volume of THE AGROMECK is respectfully dedicated by the Class of 1913 Captain OTtllt dSranbp $eace Captain Peace was bom at Oxford, North Carolina. September 21, 1875. After preparatory training at Horner Military School, Oxford, he entered the University of North Carolina with the Class of L898. Here he attained Cum laude, but did not graduate, leaving to enter United States Military Academy, West Point, where he graduated in 1901. Immediately commissioned Second Lieutenant of Artillery he was raised to the rank of First Lieutenant in 1905, and of Captain in 1909. Captain Peace ' s principal service has been with the Fifth and Fourteenth Companies of Coast Artillery, on Tybee Island, Georgia, in defense of the Savan- nah River; with the Sixteenth Company, in defense of Port Royal, South Caro- lina; with the One Hundred and Fifth Company, in defense of San Francisco Harbor; with the Twenty-fourth Battery of Field Artillery when it was sent out to quiet disturbances in China. Order was restored before the arrival of the troops, however, and the battery was kept in the Philippines. His next service was with the One Hundred and Twenty-third and Ninety-eighth Companies in defense of New York Harbor, and in making military maps in Southern Cali- fornia. Since July, 1910, Captain Peace has been Commandant of Cadets and Professor of Military Science and Tactics at the North Carolina College of Agri- culture and Mechanic Arts. Captain Peace was married in 1906, in San Francisco, to Miss Dorothy Bruce Dustan. He is a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity, of the Sons of the Revolution, of the Capital Club of Raleigh, and of the Raleigh Country Club. During his residence at his present post Captain Peace has commanded the respect of the Faculty of the College, and of the students, by the efficient and conscientious manner in which he has discharged his duties; and that he has won the esteem and the affection of all with whom he has come in contact is evinced by the dedication to him of this Annual. T. P. Harrison. To those who appreciate the difficulties of producing a College Annual we extend our hearty Greeting in this, the eleventh volume of THE AGROMECK THE AGROMECK-. NINETEEN THIRTEEN Cbttorial In this book we have tried to summarize our work and pleasures of the past year. For the students, we trust that we have stored up some incident that one day will bring back sweet memories of school days. For the Alumni, this book is intended as proof of our loyalty to the College tradi- tions which we have inherited from them and with the hope of reviving in them those sacred immutable memories that are asso- ciated with their past college life. For the public it is intended as a demonstration of close ties of comradeship that unite all A M men in their enthusiasm for their Alma Mater. Associate €bitovs A C Wilson R. ' I " . Mki.vi.n II B.

Thai was the force which our class marshalled into the hitherto unknown mysteries of college life in September, 1909. This number was made up of undignified, reserved country rustics and disdainful city high school graduates along with all intervening castes repre- sented. But the harriers of caste and lack of acquaintance began to crumble away when, for the first time, we all assembled in Pullen Hall to elect officers for the Class of 1913. At the first meeting H. .1. Powell was chosen to serve his half organized class in the capacity of temporary President. A few weeks later permanent organization was effected, this time with .1. I. McCallum, the happy go lucky " Hornet, " in the Chair. The colors adopted were navy blue ami white; the flower, the violet- emblem of faithfulness; and the motto. " We live to learn. " is being exemplified every day. McCallum ' s ideal was an organization for unity. He did more, perhaps, than any other one man to effect harmony both in the class and between classes. Our Sophomore year, one hundred and one strong, was led by D. A. Robert- son as President. Robertson, an almost faultless athlete, instilled into his class athletic ideals. During this year individuals of the class began to take active pari in the work of the Literary Societies. Y. M. C. A., various clubs, and to interest themselves in all the activities of college life. .1. 15. Coward, presiding over our Junior year, bridged most happily that transient period from underclassmen to Seniors for the sixty-six who had, defy- ing difficulties, persisted thus far on the course. The President of tlie Senior Class is ( ' . (I. Spencer, whose ideal has been cooperation with the Faculty for the betterment of A M. Fifty-seven men have survived the weeding out process to which the class has been subjected during the past four years. In this number are a lew who have joined along t he road. In athletics the class holds a distinctive record, unparalleled in the history of the college. Her football team has never been scored upon! This is due largely to the self-sacrificing spirit of the individual players manifested while in training for the different class games. In baseball our class won the cham- pionship as Freshmen. Defeat, however, was our portion for both Sophomore and Junior years. The Class of L913 has furnished some of the best gridiron material thai the State afforded. I). A. Robertson and I). B. Floyd were accorded places on the All South Atlantic Squad. The following men have all played ' Varsity ball- THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 27 P. D. Davis, D. B. Floyd, G. C. Glenn, W. T. Hurtt, D. C. Jeffrey, D. A. Rob- ertson, C. G. Spencer, S. B. Sykes, and W. H. Von Eberstein. In baseball the class has been represented by D. A. Robertson and R. E. Page. The class had much to do with the development of basketball in A M and has furnished two good players in D. C. Jeffrey and D. A. Robertson. In track the Class of 1913 stands conspicuous in the characters of F. C. Smith, W. H. Sullivan, J. C. Small, D. A. Robertson, W. T. Hurtt, D. B. Floyd, and G. C. Glenn. The interest manifested by the various college activities has been a dynamic force in propelling the work of these organizations. No other class in recent years has contained so many eligibles to the Presidency of the Y. M. C. A. The Literary Societies have both found good men and hard workers to replenish their forces. The Honor System could never have been instituted without the support of this class. The work of raising funds to erect the handsome Y. M. C. A. Building which now adorns our campus rested heavily upon us. Another significant fact is the large number of men who have throughout their course done outside work to defray their college expenses, either in part or in whole. The scholarship of the class has been above the average of previous classes. Twenty-one men have made the Honor Roll one or more of the first three years, while five men will have an average grade of over ninety on all their subjects for the entire four years spent on classes. The growth of the college during our sojourn has been substantial and little less than phenomenal. This old campus would look dreary indeed should we see it shorn of the 1911 Dormitory, Winston Hall, the Dining Hall, The Animal Husbandry Building, the Y. M. G. A. Building, and the new barns. Nor are we forgetful of the days when we drilled on Cameron Field — the now beautiful residential suburb of Raleigh. We have now run the gauntlet. The goal looms to view. We have fought a good fight and have kept the faith. The responsibilities, which must inevitably accompany the distinction of superior training, are awaiting us — knocking at the door. We have been boys together, now we emerge as men to separate. Historian. 28 THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN Lewis An.c Ammon, " Bull " Marshall, N. C.

AM.c iPropfjecp 58 THE ACROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN entor Clas Ikopfjecp This world is a funny proposition after all. When we look hack at the days spent, like our fathers ' money, at college, we often wonder what has happened to all the old fellows and where they have wandered since we last met to receive our diplomas, which our esteemed and honored Faculty was so gracious to grant us in full payment for the four years we toiled and honed at our dear Alma Mater. Vet, such is life, just one class after another, ami to think that a decade has passed since we all stood up in Pullen Hall and sang, with Brother Joslyn leading, " When Shall We Meet Again? " Tears come to my eyes as I look hack to the days when I had to get up at seven-twenty, go to the Dining Hall and eat a cup of coffee for breakfast, and then hope it would last until I could borrow a " jit " to it a sandwich at " Charlie ' s. " It is sad, but what is the use to bring up things that have made this life happy and which we now look upon and wish we had dour differently in a number of ways? But cheer up, the worst has passed and we all received our sheepskins, which we have long since hung on the wall, and now tell stories of the things we did at A M to liven up the dear old place. I can look back tonight and see the grand celebration, with all the white duck trousers of the fellows so spotless as we passed St. Mary ' s, and then before we crossed the Hillsboro Street bridge all polka dotted with the mud caused by the mixture of the dust and rain which came up all at once. When the best class that ever graduated at A M received their diplomas a little farewell meeting was held in Pullen Hall and every man promised to report to said place ten years from that date, if possible. It was a sad time — the final handshake, perhaps with some of the fellows for the last time, — and to think that we, shoulder to shoulder , had stood the trials and tribulations of the College Fac- ulty, accompanied with the little notices informing us that we were requested to report to the Registrar and answer for the classes we missed in order to see the girls parade Monday morning. The usual excuse, " Sick, " was written across the sheet and we silently passed out of the door, wondering what would happen to us next. But say, why so sad ' . ' I looked up and the calendar caught my eye, and there in hold letters stood the (late, May 25, 1923. Gee! This was the year of our ( ' lass Reunion, and the time for the fellows to meet only two days off. Great Scotl ! hut 1 did have to get a hump Oil myself in order to catch the train.

Well, we hit that magnificent structure, the Hillsboro Street bridge. I felt a peculiar sensation and then " Cutie " came forward and said, " Kid, you boarded this car to go to your Class Reunion. Well, the fellows cannot come so I am going to take you to see them. Get yourself fixed and hold your bonnet, as " Sallie " has given her " nine points. " The first city we hit was Marshall, and " Cutie " cried, " Here, sir, lives Hon- orable Lewis Allen Amnion, Mayor of Marshall. " Yes, it was true, old " Choco- late " came out of his office and we exchanged a few stories, but he took time to tell me, before resuming his duties, that he had made a great success in the mer- cantile business and the people of the good city of Marshall made him their Mayor and he was trying to make them a good man. His business was flourishing in the largest building in town, and as I passed by I saw a large sign reading, " Amnions Mercantile Company, Anything to Eat and Wear. " About half way to the next city we had a hot box and who should come out of the machine shop but the old class mechanic, Andrews, — sure, Charles Sidney, — and he told me that he was getting along fine as Master Mechanic for the Mech- ville Machine Company and that the first of the year he was to be taken into the firm as a partner and about the same time he was going to form another partner- ship for life. Congratulations, old " chap, " and Cutie gave her two bells. This riding game was a little wearying, but " Cutie " informed me to be easy, as we were now to have some music; and sure enough we did. As we neared the village of Gilbert I could hear the melodious sounds from a trombone, and there was " Pie " Arthur playing one of his famous compositions for the trombone, which, by the way, allowed for plenty of slide, and he worked out the music by the assist- ance of the knowledge of Industrial Chemistry he absorbed while at college. " Pie " told me that he was head of the World Famous Arthur Orchestra and was having fine success, but he was sorry as he could be that he could not invite me around to the house, as Mrs. " Pie " and little " Gib " were at the seashore. We had to leave Gilbert, as our time was short, and we next came to our old pal, Bache. Well, he had returned to his native State, Florida, and with the assistance of his electrical engineering knowledge had proceeded to harness all of the available water power in that neck of the woods and was furnishing power for all nearby towns. Not forgetting his music, Bache had formed a band, of which he was director and played lead cornet. The power plant was a good thing, he went on to say, but it kept him from his wife most of the time. From there we traveled to Elm City and who should we find at the ball game but Manager Roger Bailey. It was his team, too. He was manager and it was a cracking good nine. I thought I saw one or two familiar faces, but I 60 THE AGROMECK: N INETEEN THIRTEEN was afraid to say anything so I passed it up. Roger told me that farming did not occupy all of his time, so for pastime he was hack in the national game and was going to win the pennant. I hated to ask him how love matters stood, as he had a failing along that line, hut I braced up and popped the question, and he replied, " Not yet, hut next year this time. " Just at this point I was interrupted with a slap on the hack and there stood ( }rady L. Bain — an engineer of some note, believe me. " Gertie " was down in that section looking over the site of a terminal for the electrical railway of which he was Chief Engineer. Say, it made me feel good to see the old fellow and I be- lieve he had forgotten that he was ever a " Rah-rah Lad, " as he had the appear- ance of one wanting to get home to see the Madame and muchacho. We next went to see Edwin Dennis Bowditch and we found him leaning over the iron fence that girded his country home. The chickens, dogs and cattle were enjoying the large yard, but he had the far off look of a bachelor in his eyes. So I eased him a little advice and told him to take unto himself a wife, as he was not keeping up the record of the class. " Sallie " turned on the juice and we slid along and the first I knew we were going some and finally landed in the heart of South America. We stopped in the midst of a large construction cam]), and who should he on the topmost pier of the job but old Hermon Briggs! Yes, it was Hermon Burke Briggs, of Raleigh, my beloved old classmate. I gave him the high sign and he descended to the level of terra firma and told me how it all happened. He roamed around a hit after graduation and finally hit up with the South American Construction Com- pany with a position as draftsman, worked hard and finally went out on the job, learning all he could, and his efforts were rewarded, as he was at present superin- tendent of the largest job east of the Andes. We placed the car upon the Atlantic and Pacific track and proceeded across the mountains, seeing all kinds of engineering feats that looked impossible. It was some great trip, believe me. But we finally landed in the little village of " Amosele, " drove up to the electric plant to get our car looked over and who should step out of the president ' s office hut " Amos, " yes, Amos Baxter Clement, the college electrician. Amos was as fine as could he; and then- -well, a little fellow ran out of the office and said " Papa, give me a ' pesto ' " ami I, Gee! I fell over when Amos said " Kid, that is my hoy. " Great Scotts! Amos married and having to give pestos to a little fellow to buy candy. That got me, hut 1 was glad io see that he was president of the electric plant and that he had harnessed all of the available water in that section of the woods. He told me that Sir Keith Keller was the man who built the railroad, hut at present he was in the States taking unto himself a better half. That sounded fine and 1 was sorry as could he that Keith was not around, so I could clasp his fist and have a little THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 61 chat with him. But a fellow will do anything for the sake of the ladies, so I had to leave without seeing Keith. We proceeded on with the car and came up to the Panama and there was William Randolph Clements, E.E., in large letters across the door. I went in and asked for the above mentioned gentleman and his private secretary asked me to have a seat, as the " Captain " would be in in a very few moments. Well, the old boy came in and he was some good looking sight to ' see after so many years having passed and I not having seen his beaming countenance. We had a little chat and Willie went on to tell me all about himself, and I was glad the old boy had out his shingle and was hauling in the " cash. " Willie was not much of ladies ' man but he was pretty strong for some fair Spanish damsel. It seemed as if all the fellows were getting themselves in trouble, but I could not help him a bit, as it was a pretty desperate case. Willie boarded the car with us and we crossed into Texas and there found " Billie " Cole. Billie, the farmer, was sitting on his porch enjoying the cool breeze. He called the Madame and told her to put a couple more plates on the table as there was company for supper. That sounded good, as I knew that boy had a wife who was some cook, as he made that statement while at college. So I was sure she knew how to have good things to eat. We swapped a story or two and then went in to the feast. I will call it so, because it was the best meal I ever tasted. The night and part of the day was spent with Billie, as it took a long time to get over the ranch to see all of the improvements and features that were on the place. His years at college were very profitably spent and Billie Cole was the best loved ranch man in that section. Willie left me at Billie ' s, so " Cutie " and I were off in the old boat together. That sure was some car and I was afraid she would leave us and go where all good cars go, but " Sallie " only smiled, so we hit it for Colorado. There we found Dail, from Chinquapin. He had a shingle out of his window, stating that he was a chemist and glad to analyze anything at any time, and also did a little insurance business as a side line. I had my life insured and we sailed back to the dear old Dixie Land and hit Fremont. There was Paul Dexter Davis out in the street giv- ing a gang of men Hail Columbia about the car track. Sure, Fremont was to have a car system and " P. D. " was the engineer. He located at home after gradu- ation and was so trustworthy and pop ular that he was made City Engineer, and as the town was building its own electric line, he was the main guy. We placed our car on the Norfolk Southern track and rode to the fair city of Elizabeth City, where Bart Fearing resided. Bart was single but very prominent as a business man and had a third interest in the largest store in the town. His chemistry he was using to analyze accounts and hearts. But he was not as good at the heart line as in business, as he could not find one who would be all " Fearing. " 62 THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN From Elizabeth City we eased into Norfolk and there " Private " Floyd was, coach of the A M football team and getting ready to play V. P. I. No, it was not Thanksgiving, but he was there as strong as could be and his team sh owed up excellently against the Virginians, who were not in the class with the " Aggies. " After the game " Private " and I had a little confab and he told me that he was coaching in the fall and at other times he was draftsman with the shipyard at Newport News, but that it took most of his time studying out plays. We loafed in the large city for a while and then hit it up State and there found (1 Iman in the largest apple orchard in the Old Dominion. Goodman was some farmer, but his mind turned to fruit and he loved apples. But his real love was tied up some- where in North Carolina, the exact location I could not figure out, having only a limited amount of math, with which to make the necessary calculations, but I did find out that it was going to develop into two living as one pretty soon. Now there was one man in our class who was in love while in college. It seemed strange that all of the fellows were married or about to fall. But what could you expect of a bunch of fellows who graduated and their numerals were " 1 :• ' " . ' Cicero Gore was among the unlucky. He married soon after graduation and I remember how he used to tell me about the trips he made to Washington, and there he was in Richmond as Assistant City Engineer, with his wife and family to comfort him in his old age. " Slick " Gwathmey was a little different, as he — well, Gwathmey was a good student. He entered the Government service and w as getting ready to sail for the Islands, where lie was to be in charge of the construction of one of the largest dry docks in the East. He did not fall as some of the fellows did, but remained true to the cause. He never seemed to be able to figure out which one would share the hardships with him. At this stage of the trip " Cutie " called to me and said, " Let ' s go to North Carolina, I am tired of Virginia. " So we crossed the line and who should we run across but old Felix Hales. We took him on board and lie told the following story: " After graduation I went to Cornell and there specialized in Drainage and Municipal Engineering, and then went to Statesville. The rest of the story you know. I am married and as happy as can be, and am a pretty good City Engi- neer. But there is nothing like this married life. " We left Felix there and rode on. One of the sights that hit me as we neared ( treensboro was the suburb called ( ruilford, and there I found Charlie Ganzer Hall. Charlie was " Super " of the largest mill of the town and was true to the cause, but he could not get the necessary amount of words together to tell tin 1 lady how much he c-ired for her and wanted me to play the John Alden act. but I " reneged. " So I left him to suffer, but later I heard he popped the question and there were now two " Supers " of the mill, or at least Charlie had a boss. THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 63 Old " Elsie " Hand did not fall for the mill game but went to the fair city of Chadbourn, and there engaged in the mercantile business and succeeded well, but made most of his money with a little invention which he called " The Hand Snoozing Powder, " guaranteed to make you sleep all the time. I asked " Elsie " about old " Windy " and he directed me to Monroe. As I came to this progressive city I saw a large sign reading " The Hart-Purcell Spindle Flier Company, Home Office. " Say! That was some sign and there was Thomas Roy Hart standing out in front of the building wearing a large cigar, with Senator Purcell looming up in the distance with a chug-chug and a honk- honk from his much talked of motorcycle. Windy placed the foundation for his spindle and flier business during vacation after his Junior year at college, and he taught it to " Moon Face " during the Senior year. The two had formed the combine and were doing all the business they could possibly handle, " Windy " taking a little vacation every now and then to elucidate the fine points of the teams that used to be at A M. Sallie gave the old boat the juice, after we borrowed a little oil for one of the bearings. We landed slam in the heart of the wild and wooly sticks of Goldsboro and there found M ajor Thomas Jasper Hewitt. " Tubbie " was some engineer and was working out the ratio between the job of editing the Agromeck and work- ing out in the woods and never seeing any fair damsel. He had found the exact proportion and was getting his data together to go to the city of Washington and claim the answer. He was like the rest of the bunch. Poor fellow! We put him on Pullman Number 22 and sailing along came to a small place with the sign, " Cross Roads, this road goes to Higginsville. " My! But that was strange, but we followed it and who should stop us for speeding but the Sheriff, and when the whiskers came from behind the star on the lapel of his coat " Tub " and I recognized Higgins, our dear beloved classmate. " Kibe " was some officer, but he informed me that he was only working extra as he did not have much to do on his farm. Two bells and we passed him by, but we did not journey long until we hit Peter Holt. He was leaning over the split rail fence of the barnyard admiring some fine young horses. They were as pretty as could be and Peter was directing the care of the full blooded Arabians. We exchanged greetings and " Tubbie " stopped here, as he forgot to tell me that he and Peter were going back together and have a double ceremony. At this place Sallie turned, as we had to come back to Raleigh and put a red light on our car, as they have them all on the cars now and red means Hillsboro. We started again and near Natural Bridge, Virginia, we found " Sis " Hopkins out surveying the ground for the erection of a country home. " Sis " was some Civil Engineer and he with " Bill " Simpson had formed the " Sis-Bill Construe- 64 THE ACROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN ticm Jompany and " Si- " was retiring from the field on account of his health, as the woods and wild places did not fit well with his body, so he was to take charge of the liuine office in Richmond. Hopkins told me that he had to go to New York, so we put him on the car and liii the ball. While en route to the " Great White Way " " Sis " told me that Dug Jeffrey was in the Islands working for the Government, but would be home some time soon, but while in the Islands he had coached the football team of Manila University and had made good. At Philadelphia we found " Rubber " Jeffress in charge of the Southern busi- ness for the Quaker Electric Company. His position gave him many chances to visit the city by the Gulf, and when he made these journeys he always returned with a very broad smile, and on the next Southern trip he was going to bring the Louisiana lady back with him. " Rubber " told us that J. W. Johnson was in town a few days ago buying sup- plies from the Quaker people for the Garland Power Company, of which he was Vice-President and Manager. I was sorry as could be that we missed " .1. YV. " . as I wanted to see him, but he was still single and the prospects for married life were very poor. Our motor was running badly, so we eased over to a branch of the " G.E. " to have our bus looked over, and who should come out to superintend the install- ing of the new motor but George Edison Kidd. George wenl to the " G. E. " people soon after graduation and made good. He was in charge of the Electric Car Motor Department, so of course he looked after our job. We then beat it for New York, arriving on Broadway in time to attend church, having not forgotten the habits we formed while at college. Who should we see in the pulpit but Harvey Langill Joslyn telling in very flourishing terms about the soul of the Filipino, lie was a missionary to the Islands and was sent out by the Y. M. ' . A. of A M. and was telling of the ways ami hardships of the people. At the " Welldoff -Gaston, " where we had dinner, who should we see across the table from us but " Lewis " Knight, and he was with one of the prettiest speci- mens of calico I ever saw. He recognized us and invited the bunch over to meet Mrs. Knight. They were on their honeymoon. There went another who deserted the bunch to get married. After dinner we crossed to Brooklyn and there in the largest drug store in town was Maurice Liferock reading an extra edition of tin- Wcm Gau Rac. The headline stated thai A M had defeated Carolina sixty-eight to nothing. Life- rock was a civil engineer but he did not like the work, so saved his money and rose to his present position as sole owner of t he Brooklyn I )rug ( ' oinpany. It seemed that the A M graduates had a kind of meeting place every Sun- day afternoon with Liferock, and who should come in but H. S. Maunev. He was THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 65 city salesman for the Westinghouse people and was doing fine, but all the time he was a confirmed bachelor. R. T. Melvin came in to purchase some seed for his farm in the White Moun- tains. He wanted to raise some kind of stuff and came to the drug store to get the necessary wherewith, as Liferock had anything in his store for man or beast. He told us that old " Snail " McComb was in town and so we sent a " taxi " for " Snail " and had him to come and tell the crowd about the large job he was constructing for the " Thunder and Lightning Power Company " near the city of Hickory. " Snail " looked worried and we asked the trouble and he said, " Fellows, I just saw the prettiest woman in the world. I would marry her today if she would have me. " Same old " Snail, " loving the last one he is with or sees. After a short stay in the city of New York seeing the sights we got our little things together and hit it for the West. We came to the city of Albany and there found Lewis Merritt with an office in the State Capitol, with a sign on the door reading, " L. L. Merritt, State Geological Survey. " Lewis, after graduation, like a number of the fellows, went North and made good; thus the name plate. We exchanged greetings and he wanted me to stop over and have dinner with he and his " Jane, " as he used to call her at college, but I was sorry as I had an important engagement in the Windy City to see the Stock Yards with Tim Nixon. In a short time we arrived in Chicago and found the above mentioned personage busily engaged as head Veterinary at the Union Stock Yards. " Tim " decided that Veterinary was the best after all, so he spent a couple of years at Kansas City and completed his course and he is known over the entire West as one of the most celebrated administerers to the dumb brute in the country. In passing up Main Street to the hotel who should we see but Thomas Ken- neth Mial, of Raleigh. " Icky " was in the Windy City looking over some stock to buy for his large farm near Raleigh. He decided, after graduation, that it was a great deal more profitable to do the mechanical work on his farm and to draw lines over a mule ' s back than to work out in the wide world. " Icky " having nothing special to do, I prevailed upon him to get on his " old pal, No. 22 " and have a ride with us, as we would give him a good trip. Cutie received the orders, gave Sallie the signal and we started for the Pacific coast. We came to Yellowstone Park and there found Walter Herbert Parker doing some special work for the Government. What he was doing I could not exactly remember, but it seems that he had been working for the Government and had some extra fine calculations, which proved to be the result of the work- ing out of the amount of water that was flowing from the geysers, and as a reward for his untiring work along this line he was now getting together the necessary data to figure how long it would take the water of the Pacific Ocean, flowing at a rate of the Great Geyser thru a hole the same size, to empty into the Atlantic 66 THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN Ocean, and also how much oil would have to be used to oil the wheels of time. We wanted to take " Bessie " with us, but a man with all that work did qoI have time to go on a joy ride, so we left him to his fate. From there we landed in Seattle, Washington, and found " Thad " Parrish, Citj Electrician. He had somewhat of a roaming disposition and having been all over the whole world and following the electric game all the time, finally set- tled on Seattle as a place to make his future home. He was married and had a very pretty little lady at hi- home who wanted to know all about North Carolina, as she said, " That ' s where ' daddy ' used to live. " While traveling down the coast I looked out of the window and saw a very familiar motorcycle, which I soon discovered to he the property of one Thomas Hector Purcell, and the above mentioned " Senator " was driving the muddy steed. I hailed the " Senator " and he with a smile as broad as could be upon his moon- faced countenance stated that he was touring the West for his health and was having a lovely time; that he left Monroe the day after we did and was now return- ing to his farm, as he had a lot of work to do there and his Reaper had to have a new gear, bu1 lie had one he found while at college. Mial left Cutie and I at Portland, so we went to San Francisco alone, but there found Henry Aubrey Quickel. " Babe " was in the service of the Pacific Wireless Company and was in charge of the main office in ' Frisco. lie followed the mill game for a time but the love for the telegraph key called him and he responded, getting into the wireless side. He liked the game line, but said that there was one call that worried him to death at night and it was generally followed by a walk, intermingled with yells. He laughed and writing it on paper said, " Here is the call. " I read, " P-A-P-A. " Quickel and I went down to the wharf and who should we see getting off a Government transport but Captain John Olan Rankin, Jr., of the Philippine Constabulary. Soon after graduation " Jonnie " went into the service and his promotion was rapid. He was now home on a furlough and from the smile he was wearing and the hurry he seemed to be in to get to (iastonia. " Babe " anil I decided that some girl was the cause of the trouble. He would not wait to come back with me but hopped on the first cross country airship and beat it for Char- lotte. We left the coast and came to Fort Leavenworth and there found Lieutenant Garland Thomas Rowland. U. S. A., Officer of the Day. Yes, sir! Major was in the service and he was proud of Ins office as could be, and tapping me on the shoulder said, " Lid, I sure had to work to pas- that exam., but it is worth it, and I am SOOIl to be a Captain and then 1 will have to go to the Islands, but 1 am not going alone. " A- we neared ' olumbus I saw a very large and tall skyscraper under construe- THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 67 tion and a massive sign reading, " Sis-Bill Construction Company, Home Office, Richmond, Virginia, " My! I nearly fell off the old gondola, but I went up to the plant and asked if Mr. Bill Simpson happened to be in the city. I was in- formed in the affirmative by a slap on the back and the words, " Bet your life, Kid, I am right here and I want you to meet my wife. " I looked again. She was a tall blonde of the North Carolina type. The porter made down our berth, so Cutie and I went to sleep and when we woke we were in ( Iharlotte and there found Robert Lee Sloan, happy as could be, as he had raised the largest watermelon in the county and was so happy he could hardly see. About that time " Fido " Smith came up and he had to tell us about himself and what he was doing for the good of the people. He handed us a card which read, " F. C. Smith, representing The Greater Charlotte Improvement Company. " " Fido " stated that he was in charge of the improvement of a piece of property near Charlotte and hoped to get a good bit out of the deal, and as a side line he was trainer and coach of the city track team, which was to compete with the other teams of the State, and his team was sure of a good place in the lead if not to win. " Fido " left us and I looked around and who should I see coming up the street but Frank Steed Smith, and believe me, he was coming some in a great big rac- ing machine. I gave " Rookie " the high sign and he slowed down long enough to tell me that he was in the auto business and now he was on his way out to the " speedway " to try out his " Thirteen Cylinder Kerflunk. " But he said he would see me when he came back, so I saw him throw in the clutch and beat it for the track. While standing at the Square talking with Cutie who should appear on the scene but Colin George Spencer. He looked prosperous and in answer to the question as to how he was living, he went on to narrate: " Well, it happened this way, after graduation I went on the road but I did not like it, so settled down at home, Asheboro, and there went into business with the experience I acquired while at college, and I am here buying goods. I have never married, as I don ' t seem to be able to connect with the proper one, but I will tell you this much, it is not because I sing to them. " Spencer and I strolled down to the hotel and who should we see tacking up the street but John Brown Steele. He was in town from his apple orchard up in the Yadkin Valley and was trying to sell a carload of what he called " Steele ' s Yadkin Beauties. " I asked him how he loaded the apples and he related as follows, " Well, you know it is pretty hilly up where I reside, so I have all of my trees on the side of the hills and the railroad runs along in the valley, so when the time comes to load I get all of the cars I need and fix the chutes to the doors and 68 THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN then the scientific work begins. I put men at work shaking the trees and the apples roll down the hill and right into the cars. " I winked at Spencer and we congratulated him on his fine management , and he wanted to know what we were laughing at. But we had to go, as Spencer wanted to get hack home as he was going to sing a song. I met Cutie at this point, so he decided that we would take Spencer home and on our way hack stop at Granite Quarry to see Stover. As we arrived in the limits of this thriving little village, I saw a blue light ascending to the heavens and I asked Cutie what it was and he replied that he had not the slightest idea. So I said, " Let ' s investigate. " We did and who should we find at the seat of all i his light hut old Stover. We watched him for a few minutes and then I said. " Look here, William Beaver, what art thou doing? " " Talking to Mars, my kind Kid, " he replied. And so I had to get in on it myself, as lie could not have all of the gas on that deal. So he explained that while at college he made several little experiments on the quiet and now was getting them arranged so as to prove that Mars was inhabited. And when he did all of the world would shout, " Great Stover! " It looked nice, all that funny wiring and so on. But nixie for mine, so I headed for Charlotte, as I had a little work in my office. And who should I find there hut Stanton Burke Sykes waiting to get me to sign the contract for the wiring in the new mill I was having built. Sykes went into the contracting game and being able to take a lot of punishment from the big ones, finally was on the last part of the ladder and his business was increasing every year and he was making money, hut did not have time to get a wife. Sykes and I swapped a few stories and then he said, " Kid, come get in my car. I want you to see a happy family. " So I eased out and placed myself in the electric and we went out into the country over the macadam to heat the hand. As we neared a large country mansion, " Cupid " said, " Kid, he real quiet and we will slip up and look in the window. " We did, and, well, I nearly gave the tiling away, but I did manage to calm myself, and there I saw a beautiful picture. " Reddie " Stowe was seated in a great rocking chair, a large cigar in his mouth and a little bundle in his arms and he was humming a very familiar tune, " Sleep, Little One, Sleep. " Great Seotts! But that was a blow. We laughed out loud and " Red " said, " Who are you ' . ' " We made ourselves known and then he told us that he did not intend to get married hut it was so lonesome on the farm thai he had to do it. And the little lad was redheaded, so we dubbed him " Little Red. " " Trainer " and I departed after a good time with " Little Red " and daddie. I caught the car for Raleigh and on the way found Alvin Chesley Wilson in charge of the power plant at Rockingham, " dies " stated that he went with THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 69 the Carolina Power Company and they at present had him out here serving as an extra man, but he would be back in Raleigh in a few days. I bade " Ches " goodby and we started for home, and I began to feel kind of funny and said to Cutie, " Look here, old sport, this trip has about put me on the bad. " " But my, Doctor, " some one said, " he will be all right in a few minutes. " I opened my eyes and there was P. B. Ferebee standing over me, and I — well, I looked around and I was on a cot. How I got there I know not, but " P. B. " told me that the car went through the bridge and that I was knocked unconscious. I asked him what he knew about it and he said that he was Superintendent of the car system now, and recognizing me, came to the rescue. " But, say! Hurry and get up, ' Kid ' , as the fellows are all at the college for the Reunion, and you are late. " 70 THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN Sgrtcultural Mentors! Alias " Country Gentlemen " L. A.

Second, Knowing that the winters of West Raleigh are very eold and some- times raw, we take this chance to give to our dearly beloved Dean, Doctor Harri- son, the following: every solitary Genung English Book used by the Class oi 1913 during their Junior year, and we hope the dearly beloved Doctor will, on these rough nights, take the above mentioned articles and thrust them head foremost in his furnace, and that the heat derived therefrom will enable his cold heart In warm a little while he is correcting Junior English papers; that the heat will over- come him In the extent that he will lie unable to flunk a man and also, above all, none of the papers will be " wishy-washy. " Third, To our honored and esteemed President, Doctor Hill, we, with all the reverence due his high position, hand to him all reports made by the members of the Senior Class " ramming " lower classmen for being downtown. Rut we put one proviso, thusly: this mammoth amount of reports does not include those of the Major. In view of our generous gift to the .Mighty President, we do ask that he put these dearly beloved reports in the boilers and that he will be able to cut down the expenses of the ( ' ollege at least one mill, as we are sure the healing units of these reports will generate and keep steam in the dormitories at least one one- inillionth of a second. THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 83 Fourth, To our true friend, the Registrar and Protector, Mr. E. B. Owen, we give the exquisite pleasure and privilege of erasing our names from the Conduct Book and crossing our names from the College Roll, but remembering at all times that we fellows dearly love to think of the care and consideration he had for us while at College. Fifth, To Professor W. A. Withers we give innumerable thanks for the grand little " ditty, " " Promptness is a Rare Virtue, " and do assure our dear Professor that we will always follow his advice through life, as he has done. Sixth, To Mrs. Harris, our College Mother, we hope that all classes to come will give her no more trouble than we have, and we sincerely hope she will remem- ber always that the members of 1913 Class thank her from the bottom of their large hearts for the many and many touches of tenderness she has bestowed upon their fevered brows when they have been under her care. We also trust that in a very short time she will have a new building in which to take care of her boys. Seventh, To Mrs. Holman we do with great gratitude thank her for the care she has taken in seeing that our food was served nicely and cleanly. Eighth, To the Boarding Department we give back all beef we could not chew. Amen. Ninth, To the Literary Societies we give all speeches. To the German Club all girls we do not take away with us. To the Rooters ' Club all the noise possible, and may they win all the time. Tenth, To Captain Peace, one Agromeck, and good luck and best wishes of the entire class for a speedy promotion. Eleventh, Having in the beginning given the College to the Class of 1914, we do hereby extend to them all the privileges of Seniordom and do sincerely hope they have in the past three years profited by their experience and know what is expected of them. Twelfth, To the lower classes we extend our congratulations for having stood by the good s hip A M as you have, and we hope you will do so henceforth. And as you are now older, we hope you realize what is expected of you by the folks at home. Especially to the incoming Sophomore Class do we extend thanks for showing their true A M spirit and hope that they will always be proud of the fact that they started a custom that will last for ages. Thirteenth, Some people being of a funny nature and always seeing things when they are sober, we do take pleasure in telling you that " 13 " is not such a bad 84 THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN number after all. We have been working under it for four years and have found it to be a very good pair of numerals. Fourteenth, Under this heading we, with regret, give the right to some of our classmates, who could not drive their ponies as well as we, a place with the " 14 " ( ' lass, together with our sympathy. We hope they will have a safe journey and come out on top. Fifteenth, To the new class preparing to enter: We welcome you to the dearest place in the State, and do hope you will all pass off your work as it comes up and that you will all he true, honest A M men. Sixteenth, In conclusion, as we are now about to leave you for parts unknown, we hope that some day we will all have the pleasure of meeting again, and when we do we will all join in and give a snappy Wan Gau Hue Yours with best wishes, Attest: The 1913 Class.

As I looked about me, I saw a little stream Winding its silvery form through a small ravine, Finding its way over treacherous rock and rolling stone; Thence flowing on in its more tortuous course As its tributaries made of it a mightier force, To its goal, the great blue sea. So we, like this stream, are striving to reach our goal — The attainment of such knowledge as will give us control In dealing with life ' s problems as they come our way. And may we always continue, like its flow incessant, To attune our hearts to our work that it may be pleasant. And may we like the stream in its never dissociating course Be ever loyal to our class, tending not to disperse Before another year has passed by, For by working together we may with our work progress. And become men of high standing in the world at its best. So here ' s to the elass of the orange and blue. The emblem of loyalty and all that is true.

As Freshmen we were fresh, and as Sophomores we wore the lordly air of sophistication so dear to the hearts of all true Sophomores. But now we have thrown aside such childish things and assumed the dignity and courtliness of Juniors. As such it would ill become us to take part in the frivolous tricks which, as Sophomores and Freshmen, were not beneath us. Although many members have dropped out since we entered as Freshmen, we still have a large class, in fact the largest Junior ( ' lass there has ever b een at A A- M. Some few have joined our ranks from previous classes and from other institutions. To these we extend a hearty and fraternal welcome. Early in the history of our class we began winning athletic honors. Although our football team lost to the Sophomores in our Freshman year, we secured re- venge by defeating the same class for the baseball championship the following spring. In our second year history repeated itself. We lost in football to the same class, but again won the baseball championship. Captain Foster did the twirling for the second time. This year we won the football championship, win- ning from the Sophs and Freshmen both by the score of ( to 0. Foster was again captain and led his team well. This makes three championships out of five that our class has won, a record that we are justly proud of. Besides winning honors in class athletics we have had many stars on the ' Varsity teams. In football we have had Cool (Captain), Anthony, Plyler, Mor- ton, and Phillips. In baseball we have had Farmer (Captain) and Patton. In basketball we have had Chambers (Captain), Austin, and Phillips (Captain). In track athletics Mclver, Kephart, and Nash have won monograms. We hope to have most of our members back next year and graduate with full honors.

" It is correctly reported that never did a bunch more visibly merit the name, for it was the embryo of the Class of 1915. Ours was the largest elass ever registered, as we numbered one hundred and sixty-two. Our first month of college life was spent in learning the way to the Post.ofrice and the Y. M. C. A., " Doe. Byrd ' s, " and " Downtown. " We also had the pleasure, if pleasure it may be called, of learning how to " Right Face " and other military contortions. Usually our slumbers were very calm and undis- turbed, except by a certain melodious (?) whistle, which had a regular habit of blowing every morning at seven o ' clock sharp. However, the dreaded " Sophs " were unkind enough to rudely disturb the slumbers of several ignorant Freshmen. Taking everything into consideration our Freshman year was a very pleasant one, although we weir all glad when it was over and we could claim the proud name " Sophomore. " In September, 1912, we began our career as " Sophs, " which so far has proved very unevent- ful. As we look over our class roll, however, we find that we have lost about fifty-eight of our men, who for various reasons have fallen by the wayside. The election of OUT class officers resulted as follows: B. W. Setzer, President; I. T. Lewis, Vice-President; D. Dailey. Secretary; R. P. Harris, Treasurer; T. W. Huntley, Poet; and the writer, Historian. We were represented on the Honor Committee by J. F. Brawley. While we have not had any signal success in athletics, we put up some very good games. F. K. Kramer ably managed our football team, while D. Dailey was Captain. " Jimniie " Hassell was fortunate enough to make substitute on the ' Varsity football team, and several others made the " Scrubs. " We have been well represented on the basketball team by Wilbur Sumner and T. W. Huntley, both of whom have played star ball. I. T. Lewis and B. W. Setzer were elected assistant managers of the football team for 1913. We are represented in the literary life of college by Mr. Setzer, who is Secretary of Leazar Literary Society. The Freshmen have suffered but little at the hands of the " bloodthirsty " Sophs, not because ol their virtue but by reason of the fact that we are otherwise lest rained . Nevertheless several of them arc about ready to graduate from the " One Year Water Carrying Course. " Several members of our class have shown a decided inclination for " Sign Painting. " The " Tank " is adorned by a large " 1 " ., " and the work would no doubt have been better had the painters nol been disl urbed by a bunch of Seniors, who for some strange reason were in the immediate vicinity of the " Tank. " Doubtless many passersby nave been puzzled at the immense " 5 " which may be seen on the roof of the new barn. There are conflicting reports as to why the " 1 " was not added, bui it is very evident that the artists put down the " 5 " and are carrying the " 1. " Better luck to our followers! As our Sophomore year draws to a close we begin to feel I he dignity which is befitting to a Junior, and we are drawn closer together by the bonds of fellowship and day by day we learn the characteristics which are peculiar to each and every one of our classmates, whose names will long l.i ' remembered in the history of dear old " A it M. " Naturally believing that the Class of 1915 is the greatest in the history of the College, we can then look back and say with pride, " I was a member of the ' lass of 191. " . " His roniAN.

We were the largest class that ever entered A M. But in spite of our numbers we were as green, if not greener, than any other Freshman Class. We bought butter checks, bathtickets, and our radiators from the .Sophs, and made all the usual blunders that every Freshman makes, and then made some more. On registration Thursday we were relieved of most of our money and assigned to our rooms. After the first few days and sleepless nights (sleepless through our fear of the Sophs) we began to get accustomed to our surroundings and feel more at home: for by this time we had been assigned our respective classes and companies. We found that the Sophomores had no " visible " desire of taking our lives; in fact I don ' t believe any Freshman Class was ever treated so well as we. Whatever fears we had left were dispelled on " College Night, " a reception given to the student body by the Young Men ' s Christian Associa- tion. At this reception we were told of the different phases of college activities and were given an opportunity to meet the older men. About the middle of September we held our first class meeting, electing a temporary President and Secretary for one month. Later the following officers were permanently elected: C. .). Pruitt, President; P. A. Roberts, Secretary; H. K. Herman, Treasurer: .1. ( ' . Collier, Poet; L. C. Holt, Historian. C. A. Ledford was elected to represent us on the Honor Committee; (i. L. billiard was chosen as manager of our class football team, and J. F. Gates, Captain. Just after chapel one morning the Senior Class in a body met us in Pullen Hall and put a proposition before us, that we and all Freshmen hereafter wear a cap of some kind during their Freshman year. The purpose of this was to create more college spirit and maintain class distinction. It was voted upon and carried unanimously that we should wear the caps. After interminable discussion we decided to wear a red cap with a white button on top, and the numerals " Hi " in front. We trust that some such custom will be continued always at A M. In athletics we have done exceptionally well. We furnished the ' Varsity football team with six of its besl men: Cooke, Champion, McHenry, Osborne, Rice, and Terry, of these 1 men, Cooke and McHenry winning monograms. There were several others who made the Scrubs and showed up well. In basket- hall we also did well, furnishing the quintet two men, Terry and Mason, both of whom did star work. Our outlook for baseball and track work is exceptionally bright at this writing. In class football we did not do so well, the Juniors defeat- ing us by the score of 6 to (), in a hard fought game; but we hope to redeem our- selves in baseball. We hope we will do as well in our four years of college life as we have done in athletics. Historian. THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 107 fjort Course Clas M. W. Edmundson President G. L.

By the untiring efforts of our efficient and highly esteemed Commandant, Captain Peace, and the officers of the Battalion, the new men were .soon taught the knowledge requisite to becoming a soldier. At the beginning of the year the Armory was moved into its new quarters, the basement of Pullen Hall, which is a decided improvement over the old one, in that it is sufficiently large to have gallery practice, also to have delinquency drill indoors when the weather is bad. During the first two months the old men received instructions in aiming and sighting exercises, gallery and target practice. Drill was held five times per week in order to prepare for the annual competitive drill, which was held November 25th. Captain H. E. Eames, Twenty-eighth Infantry, United States Army, kindly acted as judge for the occasion. The pennant was awarded to Company B, commanded by W. H. Parker, while second honors went to Com- pany C, under the command of H. B. Briggs. The winning company was also given the right of way into the Armory during the entire session. The remainder of the first term was taken up in Battalion and Company drill. After Christmas, both close and extended order drill were held. Practice in normal attack was given, advance guards sent out and outposts established. The men were also given instruction in the nomenclature of the rifle. On the 15th of January the Battalion took its place in the Governor ' s inaug- ural parade, and it was decided unanimously that the cadets were the best drilled in the parade. About the middle of February, guard mounting, gallery and target practice were resumed and continued until the annual inspection in April, after which all drill was suspended.

In looking over the records of the A M athletic teams during the year 1912 there is much that satisfies. While the records of all of the teams do not measure up to the records of the teams of other years, notably football and baseball, still in track the Red and White did better than ever before and in basketball a good start was made. This sport, started in 1910, was this year recognized by The Athletic Council and was put on the same footing with the other teams, thus insuring the speedy development of this popular and valuable branch of ath- letics. Sorrow is mixed with pleasure in looking over the records of the season when it is realized that such brilliant athletes as Hartsell, Seifert, Robertson, and Staf- ford, men who placed A M athletics on a higher plane than ever before, and men who were leaders while in college, stepped off the athletic field at A M after having done a good work in the cause of athletics at their Alma Mater. Right here it isn ' t amiss to call attention to the fact and record for future athletics at A M to try to emulate — the wonderful pitching of Robertson, who during the season of 1911 established the world ' s college strike-out record when he fanned twenty-three Guilford College players on the local field. His record still stands as the greatest performance of its kind ever to fall to the lot of an amateur pitcher. By that one fell swoop " Dave " Robertson won a high place in the Athletic Hall of Fame that will remain secure to him. Basketball had not discarded its swaddling clothes when the season of 1912 opened and less than a half dozen games were played. The majority of the games 152 THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN were losl I nit one notable victory was won from Trinity with heavy odds against A M. In track athletics the Red and White of A M was carried far to the front. More attention than ever before was given to this branch of athletics and the season was closed in a blaze of glory when third place was won by A M in the South Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association meet held in Baltimore, the few Red and White runners making a great showing against their old rivals. While the baseball team did not win as many games in 1912 as were won by tlic team of 1911, the team was by far the best in the State and made a won- derful record on the Northern trip, winning all five games — Lehigh, Washington Lee, and Catholic University being among the colleges defeated. The record made by the football team of 1912, while not measuring up to the records of former years, was superior to that of any other college in the State. At the hands of the wonderful Georgetown team A M suffered the first foot- ball defeat on the home grounds in eight years. No other team in fifteen years had piled up such a score against the A M eleven. But before the season was over that fighting spirit that is the pride of A M and that has made Red and White teams known and feared all over the South, came to the front and the show- ing made in the Thanksgiving game against Washington Lee ' s almost invincible team was one that every A M man is proud of. The naming of the athletic field and the raising of the athletic fee to an amount sufficient to admit students to all athletic contests at A M, were two of the important events of the athletic year 1912. A just tribute was paid the " Father of Athletics " at A M when the students unanimously selected the name of Riddick Athletic Field. By increasing the athletic fee a forward step was taken which has already meant much to athletics at A M. Considering the records of the four teams for the season of 1912 much is found that causes gratification and justifies the abiding faith A M men have in their athletic teams. Dixie Bowler.

There once was a professor of the A M College who discovered a lonely pickaninny, and took care of him and sheltered him. Having confidence in the valor, courage and patriotism of the boy now grown to manhood, a thirsty West Raleighite last fall commissioned him to attend the Thanksgiving game at Nor- folk, and charged him above all things to bring back a pint of " red eye. " This he endeavored to do, but alas! as he slumbered on the return train at 2:00 a. m., another Senegambian deftly extracted the booze from the inside pocket and forth- with proceeded to load up. This lowborn thief sat down behind, and propped his feet on the back of the seat wherein our protege rested. In fact, his muddy shoe from time to time tickled the ear of his fellow passenger, who as often pro- tested loudly. Finally, with a snore that rose above the roar of the train, that strange negro sank back into the arms of Morpheus, dead to the world. As he did so his feet shot forward and knocked off the hat of the subject of our sketch. Smarting under the indignity, and still furious at the loss of his bottle, the vic- tim of this outrage sprang to his feet and fairly screamed with anger, " Come here, ' Fesser Clay, an ' Mr. Taylor an ' " Major " Rowland; come here, all you A M gemmuns and bear witness to de fac ' dat I cuts dis nigger ' s troat in self-defense. " Such is the dynamic character of George Washington MeWatermelon O ' Johnson Rastus. Born of humble parents, Rastus at the age of twenty-six has, by his own personal efforts, worked up to the position of second assistant janitor in one of our lesser important buildings. Frugal by nature, he never drinks wine at meals, seldom attends the theatre, and never pays more than 850 for a suit of clothes. Even a cheap cigar goes a long way with him. " Rastus, " said Professor Clay, " did you smoke that cigar I gave you last month? " " Yas, sir, ' Fesser, dat sutainly was a fine cigar; I ' se still smokin ' it. " " What, still smoking it? " " Yas, sir; you see it ' s dis way; when I goes to see my gal, I lights up dat cigar; and when I gits dar, I puts it out and puts it in my pocket fur de nex ' time. Yas, sir, I ' se still smokin ' it. " So methodical is he in the performance of his duties that under no circum- stances could he be induced to work for more than two hours per day. He simply THE AGROMECK: NINETEEN THIRTEEN 179 will not violate the habit of years. Such economy and fidelity to duty must have its reward. If Rastus does not soon rest in the shade of his own vine and fig tree, it will be because a heartless Building and Loan Association fancies his face less than do those who have long basked in the sunlight of his smile. s o — o ' 2 z c H 3 s c r.

The Faculty in Vaudeville THIRTEEN GREAT ACTS All New and Showing Some of the World ' s Greatest Freaks, Brought Together Under the Management of One Man Who HasBeen Striving for Years to he Able to Say, " Fellow Citizens, I Have ' em Here. " By College Theatre Press Agent Coming soon, the greatest acts ever shown in vaudeville and also some of the world ' s widest known freaks. They will all be shown at the College The- atre and will be well worth the price of admission. Tickets can be secured at the College Book Store. Make your reservations for seats immedi- ately . In view of the fact that this is the first time that the Faculty Vaudeville Show has ever had the chance of appearing at A M, I will impose upon your good nature to tell you a few of the little stunts that are per- formed by these great personages and also a little of their history. So dear, gentle and kind reader, please be patient, as we are about to start on this little story and we hope you will be able to derive therefrom, no, not a formula, but enough amusement to be willing to part with a mere por- tion of your " tin, " to witness the com- ing events. As a head liner we place " Daniel Harvey, " the smallest man in the country to hold so elevated a posi- tion. He with his jokes that Noah laughed at while in the Ark, will try to keep you awake for a few moments, and he will wind up by saying. " Gen- tlemen, it is for the good of the college and the Legislature is in session. " Following tin., lair specimen of humanity comes " Wallace Carl, " the long distance weed chewer of the world. Gentlemen, it is without pre- varication that I make this state- ment, " Wallace Carl " can. with two plugs of the weed in his face, per- form the following stunts: Lecture to Seniors, talk athletics, and refuse to advance money for the scrub team to make a trip, all in one shot, and then can wind up with a double act of taking Coca-Cola and expectorat- ing twenty-seven and one-tenth feet in a hole of one-half inch diameter. good folks, this one sight is well worth the price of the show. The third act is that of " Tommy, ' ' the eternal Borer. This specimen of humanity is one of the original mem- bers of the Boring Society, founded in America, and with some of his classy English stories will entertain you for a few moments in his " wishy- washy " way. Next, good people, we call your attention to the wonder of the age, the man who started a little saying that has been his motto through life, " Promptness is a rare virtue. " This man was captured in the past age by chemists and he absorbed enough of this matter to ruin his smelling appa- ratus. But with all this he is a good one and can find sometimes a new joke to tell his audience. They run something thusly, — " What will make more noise under a fence than one pig? " (Pardon the outburst of cheers) the answer is not two pigs but a hog. Now. as we get this far, we will tell you of the greatest act of the age, that of " T Foot. " This human was imported from England and by the continuous stumping of his die on " H ' s " he has contracted a walk ' that will place the modern contor- tionist in one of the worst states of envy ever. Therefore we have to be very careful how this person walks about the streets. William Tell was some man, but he is not in the same class with " William Hand. " This person derived his name from some of his people, why, we know not, because we were not there when : this cognomen was attached to him. He is one of the best acts with the i show and will tell how he has mod- ernized the use of electricity, with the assistance of " Buz. " Their act con- sists of ringing an electric bell by the the use of a battery. " Howard Ernest " will appear next, ami this mechanical personage can per- form stunts that are almost human- like. He has been taught to eat. sleep and walk, and also to grade papers, and with a few more years ' training he will be able to take his place in the world as a man who, although a piece of machinery, can do all of the work that is required of him. " Smile and the world smiles with you, frown and it is the same as 1 night. " (Shakefellow). The above lit- tle song goes with the act of " Sunny Jim, " the smiling wonder. This fel- low was captured in the woods and brought to civilization, where he was clothed and shod, and has remained so to this day. His smiles are evi- Continued on Page Two The Wau Gau Rac PI BUSHED WEEKLY ,.i ill.

Owing to the fart that the Legisla- ture is in session, we dare not speak above a whisper for liar they will hear us anil thereby cut off our appro- priation. We feel it our duty to censor Neil O ' Brien for pointing his finger at our famous Chemical Trio when he ren- dered his little solo, " No mattei- how homely, there ' s no face like your own. " It is with profound sorrow that we note the passage of the Webb Bill We congratulate our former President for exercising such good judgment when he vetoed this bill. Honorable Senators and Congressmen, you are responsible for the fact that Virginia ' s revenue is tut short, and to you l he manufacturers of private distilleries are indebted.

Next, ladies and gentlemen, comes one of the leading features of the bill, that of " Robert L. " This personage will prove to you that he is without doubt the most absent minded person in the world. He is known at one time to have been out in the rain and going home instead of getting in bed put his umbrella there and he stood up in the corner of the room all night. This alone will make any person come to the show. He will also try to demonstrate the use of the fourth dimension, but he forgets every time where he left off at the last perform- ance, SO he has to " treat them simul- taneously " and start all over again. ' Willis Grandy, " the military man. This handsome fellow, who has a head of hair of the scarlet hue, will tell of his trials and tribulations while with the people of the Philippines, and he will also vouch for the fact that the remark made by Sherman is in every respect true. Ah, litis act. Well, my dear seat fillers, here is i he College Magician. lie can make money go farther than any one person in this great show. i allow him to look after the cur- rency ami lo keep straight the finan- cial arrangements ' if the Company. lb answers to the name of " Arthur Finn, " and when pushed very hard Can, with his tricks of magic, put KellaX ami some Of the others in the shade. He will do the great act of taking a glass of water and making it disappear down his throat and at the same lime snap his fingers. Next we call your undivided atten- tion to ' T. G. " the Wonder! The man who sits all the time and wears a blank expression and will sometime! say, " Gentlemen, the mad to town leads through my office. " He is billed with this slum as the fat man, though he can do several other stunts, but owing to the limited amount of space we are unable to tell you of his ability. The leading feature of this act is a little remark, " Well, I will write it in the book that way. ' ' Last but not least comes one who Cannot be Classed with the above, but we carry him as a bodyguard for the freaks. This chocolate colored man answers to the name of " Allen, " and when the bell is ringing he is always ready to go an errand for any of the members of the troupe. With this little introduction, fellow citizens, I hope when this show arrive! in our fair city, you will be able to go down in your clothes and have the time of your life and say, " Thanks for the chance, Mr. Manager, I would not take a ' William ' for the show.

The person thus charged wishes to make the statement that such rumors are false, as he was down town. Several Juniors have been to Chapel of late. We wonder why? It is reported that " Slick " Gwath- rney went to Chapel one morning. He denies the report. Charlie Hall failed to report to Tyree ' s Studio Saturday. The Freshman raps have come. " Pie " Arthur spent last evening on the campus with his beloved room- mate, " Tub. " It is reported by the Textile Seniors that " Windy " Hart tried to turn the elevator of the Realty Building into a " Pay as you enter " car, while in Charlotte. In the late " Looking pretty contest " Mr. Burfoot, of the Freshman Class, carried off first honor. To the surprise of the students, " Elsie " Hand arrived on class before the second signal of the whistle. We regret to know that Amnion | suffered a stroke of lockjaw after the Y. M. C. A. house warming. Great excitement prevailed in the dining hall when it was reported that tender steak was being served. The steward came to the rescue by declaring the charge to be false. We are glad that the Junior Class J has cleared itself of the debt to Giersch ' s Cafe. Prof. Pitts, our new Math. bore, is showing up well and the prospects are that he will equal the record of our long since departed friend " Mike. " The steward was wearing a large smile the other day. The excuse, we soon discovered, was that " Rubber " Jeffress was absent from dinner. This is a great saving to the boarding department. To our deep regret we in deep sor- row do bow our heads and shed an infinite number of tears over the loss of the mother of A. Vinegar, our esteemed companion. The poor lady was discovered dead.

Its aim is to promote good scholarship, good fellowship, ami good citizenship. Its object, to induce through the strong tie of brotherly friendship and the stimulus of science, a steady advance in the great art of Agriculture. Sinre it was founded, at the ( Ihio State University, January 10, 1898, the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta has been a signal success. There are now twenty-two chapters in as many colleges and universities of the country. The high standard of the Fraternity is manifested by the scores of its members who, in Slate and Nation, are reflecting credit on Alpha Zeta in general. To have been admitted to the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta is the greatest honor that a student of Agri- culture can win while in college. The North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta was installed in the North Carolina College of Agricull ure and Mechanic Arts in 1903. and was the first chapter in a Southern institution. The chapter is at present in every way a credit to the general fraternity. The members have a high average in scholarship and are leaders in the various college activities. Jfratrcs in (Llrur K. S.

Their purpose was to discuss engineering topics of interest and to try to better understand our classwork. Knowing the necessitj of public speaking to a Civil Engineer, il was so arranged that every man might avail himself of practice in tliis art by delivering orations, lectures, and recitations to the Society. In January, 1913, the Junior Class in Civil Engineering were initiated into the Society. The Society has proved of interest and benefit to each of I he members. Officers Fall Term Spring ' ' rm ( ' .

The members arc students in Mechanical Engineering and arc elected from the Junior and Senior classes. It is for the purpose of giving the members practice in preparing and delivering papers of interest to Mechan- ical Engineers. It encourages original research and reveals to the members the value of tech- nical periodicals. The Society also aims to develop the literary side of the Mechanical students, which is often neglected, because the student fails to grasp the important part it plays in his life work as an engineer.
