NORTH Wl:LS'l ERN SPECTRUM History of Northwestern College. Northwestern College had her origin in the conception of meeting a need. Like the history of most educational institutions, her inception was humble, her progress often impeded, but her purposes always have been noble and her achievements exalted. Through the initiative of the Illinois Conference, supported by three other cen- tral-state conferences of the Evangelical Association, Plainfield College, now North- western College, was founded in I86I at Plainfield, lllinois. A donation of 311,000 was given by the citizens of that city, and an effort was begun to raise a needed endowment of 550,000 A three-story frame building was erected and the first session of school opened late in the fall of l86l with a faculty of four members. During the year the total enrollment of students reached 243, mostly of Plainfield and vicinity. Professor A. A. Smith, principal of Greensburg Seminary, C-reensbury, Ohio, was elected first president of the institution, assuming his duties in the autumn of l862. The work at first was of a preparatory nature, but as demands for higher training increased, preparations were made to accommodate more advanced students. As the patronage of the school soon extended over several states, the name "Plainfield Col- lege" was thought too local, hence, at the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees in IS64 the name of the institution was changed to "Northwestern Collegef' By this time the 550,000 endowment fund was fully made up. Also, at this annual meeting a college charter was secured. ln I863-64 the first college Freshman class of nine members appeared, and in the spring of I867 the first class of college graduates flVliss Laura Pratt, Miss Florence Simms, lVlr. B. P. Dreisbachl was sent out. Owing to the lack of railroad facilities at Plainfield the location of the college was changed in 1870 to Naperville, lllinois. The citizens of this city donated about eight acres of-ground for a campus, 325,000 in money and a large college building. At the close of the first school year H870-7U at Naperville, the college catalogue shows a faculty of nine members and an enrollment of 256 students. ln l87l-72 the faculty increased to thirteen members and the enrollment of students to 296. ln l872 three other conferences united with the four original ones in the college compact. Dur- ing the same -year the enrollment of students reached 320, and in the following year 405. Accordingly, the influence of the school steadily enlarged and more students came from abroad. Also, new departments of instruction were organized and well equipped. At the close of the year ISS3-84 President Smith, feeling the inflrmity of old age, resigned his position as president of the college, which position he had very successfully filled for twenty-two years. l-le was given the honorary title of HPresident Emeritus." Professor l-l. l-l. Rassweiler, a graduate of l868 and a professor in the college, was elected Acting President. Under this administration rapid progress was made in the development of the institution. More thorough organization was effected, improved means for financial possibilities were devised, interest was solicited, and societies were organized for the purpose of promoting educational enterprise. During the period l883-l888 excellent Work was done in the college and many large classes in all departments were graduated. Uwing to unavoidable circumstances President Rassweiler resigned his position in l887-88. lmmediately following this resignation, the college catalogue shows an abrupt decrease in the number of students. President Emeritus Smith again was chosen to assume the responsibility as chief administrator of the institution. ln l888-89, Rev. I-I. Kiekhoefer, who had been five years previously a professor in Union Biblical 8 NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM Institute, was elected Acting President. ln l890 a four-story addition was built to the main hall. On December 8, 1891, President Smith died at the age of about 85 years. His memory will always live, because of his sterling Christian character and his earnest Work in the establishment of Northwestern College. In l89l, Professor Kielchoefer was elected President, thus marking the beginning of the third presidential administration of the college. The members of the faculty numbered twelve. The college compact was increased by four additional conferences of the church. The field was greatly enlarged and the number of students remarkably increased. During the succeeding years large internal improvements were madeg the curriculum was revised and extended, thoroughness and intensity characterized all the work. In l90l a Well equipped Gymnasium was erected. In 1903 efforts were ini- tiated to raise the endowment to i"p250,000. So successful was the undertaking that up to the present 3200000 have been collected. In l908 a large Science Hall and a new Library were built. With the close of the first semester, January 28, l9l0, President Kiekhoefer resigned his position as professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy and as president of the institution, which positions he had very ably filled for over twenty years. As a very strong and competent educator he raised the standard and efficiency of the college work. At the special meeting of the Board of Trustees in the middle of January, l9l0, Bishop Thomas Bowman, president of the Board of Trustees, was elected nominal President and Professor L. M. Umbach, Professor of Biology, was ,elected Acting President. The present new and fourth administration promises great progress in effi- ciency of work, and encouragement of enlarged student enterprises. The present fac- ulty C1909-IOD numbers twenty-three members, and the enrollment of students is 450. Northwestern College is recognized as an educational institution of first rank. She has a range not merely sectarian but cosmopolitan. She fully merits the exalted appellation, "A Christian lnstitutionf' HER FOUNDATION IS TRUTH. Her purpose is to guarantee the best opportunities for development of full-orbed manhood and womanhood. She truly has fulfilled her calling in the past, and there are many rea- sons for anticipating that she, in the large future before her, will contribute more ade- quately her share to the altruistic service of education. ctw-t"W., N , .?-'Z ' --g X fl' !PZ'f ?H 'ities-5 ti: MAIN BUILDING 10 l F -E , 471- Y. THE GYMNASIUM. High on the honor-roll of Northwestern College is the name of the late Pro- fessor L. Nichols, the donor of our gymnasium. Professor Nichols was an alumnus of this school and for many years the efficient principal of the School of Commerce. Ever mindful of the best interests of those about him, he made possible the erection of our gymnasium in l90l. The building itself is one which solicits the admiration of every student. Its dimensions are l00x60 feet, two stories high. It is well equipped and contains one of the best basket-ball Hoors to be found anywhere in the Middle West. It is easily the most popular building on the campus. It assures to every stu- dent an opportunity for developing his physical nature. As a memorial to Professor Nichols, it is indicative of his noble generosity and unselfish interest in Northwestern students. 11 GOLDSPOHN SCIENCE HALL. Through the generosity of Dr. Albert Goldspohn, an alumnus of the College, Northwestern is the possessor of an excellent Science Hall. The building was erected at a cost of i'625,000, not including the equipment, and was dedicated about two years ago. It is 96 feet long, by 75 feet wide, and is two and a half stories high, above a high and well-lighted basement. The first Hoor is given up to the Departments of Chemistry and Physics. I-lere are large, well-equipped laboratories, supply rooms, professor's private laboratories, a balance room, a dark room, and large lecture rooms. On the second floor are the Zoological and Botannical laboratories, each with its accompanying supply room, pri- vate laboratory and lecture room. These laboratories are all furnished with the most modern equipment. The third Hoor is to become the home of our museum, which is at present housed in the main building. It is planned to reserve the old quarters for the herbarium, which has reached a considerable size, and move the museum proper into the Science Hall. This upper story, with its sky-lights, will make an ideal place for it. In the basement of the building are an optics room and a large banquet hall, recently fitted up, besides two rooms available for lecture rooms. Science I-lall has become absolutely indispensable to the college. It renders a service of the utmost value. Northwestern's students honor the donor for his gift. 12 I H , ,, THE LIBRARY. Through a 525,000 gift of the great philanthropist, Mr. Andrew Carnegie. Northwestern College in l908 came into the possession of a beautiful new library building, built in classic design. It is a modern equipped building, 76x66 feet, two stories in height, and has a spacious basement which is fitted with stacks for bound volumes and government records. The south end of the main floor contains a reading room 25x45 feet, and at the north end there is a large reference room. The main floor also contains the librarian's office and a stack room having a capacity of 35,000 volumes. The arrangement of the second floor is similar to that of the first. Besides the many reference books, the library contains the leading magazines and periodicals which make the library a valuable supplement to the class work. A library of which we are justly proud! 13 NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM Board of Trustees. BISHOP THOMAS BOWMAN .. REV REV REV REV. REV REV. REV. REV. J. G. SCHWAB .... L. F. EMMERT .. J. H. B-REISCH H. C.

D. 16 BISHOP THOMAS BOWMAN, D. D NoRTHWEsTERN SPECTRUM EX-PRESIDENT H. J. KIEKHOEFER, A.M., PH.D. This year marks the departure from N. W. C. of one who for twenty-two years has guided the progress of our Alma Mater. l-le first became associated with our educational institutions as professor in Union Biblical Institute in l885. Upon the resignation of President l-l. l-l. Rassweiler in ISSS, President Emeritus Smith was again called to the head of the school and Rev. l-l. Kiekhoefer was appointed Act- ing President. Two years later, upon the death of President Smith, he became Presi- dent. Under his administration the College has experienced a steady growth in equip- ment and efficiency. l'lis desire for thoroughness soon revealed itself in an enlarged curriculum so that in a few years Northwestern took its place among the leading col- leges of the land. After twenty-seven years of active service he resigned his position and gave up his college activities at the close of the first semester of the present school year. BISHOP THOMASUBOWMAN, D.D. The resignation of President Kiekhoefer made necessary some temporary arrange- ments, pending the selection of a new president. Accordingly Bishop Bowman, Presi- dent of the Board of Trustees, was chosen to act as supervising President, with Prof. L. M. Umbach as Acting President. Bishop Bowman is the Senior Bishop of the Evangelical Association, and has given many years of earnest and efficient service to the Church. Hence he is widely known and respected among the chief constituency of the College. As President of the Board of Trustees, he has always shown a marked in- terest in all the affairs of the College, and has labored for its advancement. I-le brings to his new position a thorough knowledge of the institution and its needs. May his in- cumbency mark a prosperous period for Northwestern! l 17 J - Y, ,, 4 N9?I1?W ESIERN SPECTRUM L. M.

It is a well-known fact that whenever a bunch of college students get together at the beginning of a school year, there results of necessity "some class." To explain the psychology of this fact is not my object, but this will suffice: Take any convenient date between September 4-I I, and every available newcomer who may appear eligible: mix thoroughly in a strong College atmosphere. The elements will so combine as to unite with a slight explosion, and the evolution of excessive amounts of hot air. The noise, which will doubtless pass off in large chunks, need not be con- sidered, but the heavy brilliant green residue must be carefully preserved for future records. Time will fade the brilliant color and slightly reduce the quantity of the residue. The technical name is Freshmen. Never has there been a better result obtained from the above combination than the Freshmen of l907. The class numbered 48 members at its beginning, but during the first year several were compelled to discontinue their College work. Others have come in to join the class and now in the Junior Year the class roll numbers 23. It so happened one bright October morning that two dummies, "Hiram Soph" and "Dannie Senior," were found clasping the chimney of the heating plant in a fond em- brace, and some were inclined to rumor "The Freshmen," but 'iinnocent until proven guiltyn freed the class. T It was during the Freshman year also that the class representatives won from Wheaton College in debate. The baseball team, too, had carried off the season's honors, and in the room of our birth, the joint victories were celebrated with a most sumptuous banquet. In the Sophomore year 'II took upon itself the duty of helping 'IZ become ac- quainted. It was a strenuous task and for a little recreation the debating team again carried off the honors in the Ripon-Northwestern debate. Did you ask what came next? Oh!--we had a banquet. In glancing over the membership list, one will see that we have established a most excellent record for a class. We have among our members, men who have made them- selves prominent in various forms of College activities, such as athletics, oratory, debate, and class work. Such has been our progress thus far, but these dare be but stepping stones to greater successes. Prophets tell us that the banner of the gold and blue will yet wave over continued success, a future rich and glowing, so "Nineteen Double One," press on! Gladly we bear you forward with a pride of which you alone are deserving. 38 'th''?fiT::Q"3lff:gg1 f x v .

Entering as a class of thirty-live members, we could surely not boast of quantity. However, we do console ourselves with the fact that this lack of quantity, in our case, is more than counter-balanced by a high grade of quality. The whole history of our class is a manifestation of this characteristic 'iqualityu in marked contrast to the class on each side of us, where quantity seems to be most prominent. Though conceit is by no means parcel to this quality, we feel happy whenever we remember how soon after our entrance we were able to discard the walking chair, which our self-appointed guardians would fain have thrust upon us. It was really ridiculous to see with what solicitude these guardians watched over us. For at our first outing, while we were munching all kinds of dainties, our would-be "papas" were anxiously wandering from place to place, even missing their own supper, in their desperate efforts to find us. When they did find us, their 'ijoyi' knew no bounds, for we had eaten all they had dreamed of eating, and were just starting for home. Quality asserts itself. Our Sophomore year, as well as our Freshman year, is virtually an assertion of quality-intellectual, social and physical. ln our Freshman year our intellectual ability was highly manifested in the annual class debate, and also in our oratorical contest. But our intellectual powers were not realized by the more advanced students until our second year, when we were in great demand. When the societies were in need of strong debaters for the inter-society debate, material of special quality was found among our ranks, and our contributions to the Chronicle and our executive ability were much sought for. Our Sophomore Inter-Collegiate Debating Team has added special glory to our class. They met the Wheaton Sophomore team in debate and won the unanimous de- cision of the judges. We have done much for the development of a pleasant social atmosphere, with our many outings, house parties, and the banquet we had in honor of the winners in the Freshman Oratorial Contest. Our record would not be complete if we did not mention our successes in athletics. Fellows from this popular class have been taken as members for the Varsity baseball, track, and basketball teams. This, of course, shows our physical quality. The spirit of "dare and don is prominent among the attributes that go to make up l9l2,s Hqualityf' This the class of I9I 3 must acknowledge, for they doubtless remem- ber the time when they invested Hover ten dollarsn in blue and yellow socks, and the Sophs took them temporarily in charge. Such has been our history. May that high quality, which is now so prominent in the class of 1912, remain with her until she closes her college career! 42 -K ' 'Mt' T ' N "iii, .v,. f ' Tin " X ff ff I 11 1 1 ,I 1. ,J N XX xx R X XQX A li S Y X V X X X I!! 1 Wir, W x X XS fum XX I X X W X XX X X X QEXXX X F f bf, Vxi W X WW!!

It is said that "history repeats itselff' Accordingly one might think the history of the class of 1913 would be the same as that of every class which has preceded it at N. W. C. Though its story is soonest told, we believe it to be second to none of the other classes. The class of 191 3 started out in September about fifty strong, comprising the raw material for many of the future debaters, artists, musicians, and athletic stars of N. W. C. From twelve states and provinces they comeg some fresh from high school, and ready for several years more of study, some from the farm and its engrossing caresg a few from the business world: and still others who decided that school-teaching had lost its charm and heard the call of college. Now, though about two-thirds of the year has passed, the ranks of the class remain quite the same, though a few have withdrawn. The freshman class boys are some boys. An athletic spirit was soon manifested among them and as a result a football team was organized. In the two games played between the sophs and freshmen, neither side scored. The basketball team, though a good one, was not only scored on but beaten quite often. The boys are out to win and they will be heard from later. This spring finds many of the freshmen boys on the baseball diamond or at the tennis courts. Several times have the Sophs tested the mettle of the Freshmen and found them not wanting. A scheme once worked failed the next time. One morning a beautiful orange and blue banner floated over N. W. C., and so plain was it that Freshmen quite a distance from the college rejoiced to see that banner in the sky. The Sophs, however, felt differ- ently about it, and tried several times to get it down. After a time they succeeded in burning it, but the next morning another banner, though smaller and less brilliant than the first, was seen on the college Hag pole. This was gotten down only by cutting the pole. So much for the Freshman class. It is still in embryo and it might baffle even the Seniors to predict what this class may become. 46 -----f fs -1.

The Department of German, contrary to the custom of mcst colleges, sustains two parallel courses, usually designated as Pure German and English German. The Pure German is designed for such students who are of German parentage and have a reading and speaking knowledge of the German language when they enter College. The aim of these courses is to give such students who pursue it a good foundation for a practical use of the language, especially to such who desire to use it in public speak- ing or as teachers. To accomplish this, only entirely German text-books are used, the recitation conducted entirely in German and the student taught to express himself cor- rectly in German, both in speaking and in writing. The first year is devoted to a thorough study of German grammar. In the second year grammar' is reviewed and the principles applied in both writing and translation of English selections into German. Besides this a number of Schiller's dramas and ballads are read and discussed, and by a study of the text, "German Daily Life," the student becomes interested in German life and institutions. The third year consists of a study of the principles of rhetoric and the student is required to apply these in weekly theme writing. This course is especially valuable to such who expect to use the German in public work. The fourth year consists of a study of the History of German Literature and the reading of numerous masterpieces of the first and second classical periods. In addition to this a fifth year is offered in alternate years in the History of Germany and an introductory course in Philology, especially designed for teachers. For such students who do not understand the German when they enter, we offer four years of English German, the Work usually offered in High Schools and Colleges. The purpose is to serve both as a discipline, and to introduce the student to German literature. a knowledge and appreciation of which is now considered essential in a modern liberal education. In all of these courses translation is only used as a means of getting at the thought, and the student required to train the ear to understand the German without the medium of translation. l-lere also special courses are frequently offered, suited to the needs and demands of the students. Such students who show any special aptitude are frequently transferred to the Pure German. It is thus evident that the privileges offered in German are far in advance of those usually offered by colleges of equal rank. 59 ,, , If., ,,,...,".-.. ff' 4 "' ti ' A-'X 1 ' " 'V 9 "" ' 4' N' H M J E' ' ?

Northwestern College has an art department which offers all the advantages of a first class Art School. This department is under the capable directorship of Lydia Dun- ham Smith, who ranks among the Chicago artists as an accomplished and sympathetic painter of oil, water colors, and china, and as an artist of recognized ability in leather tooling, drawing, stenciling and pyrography. Mrs. Smith, besides having a wide expe- rience, has studied with the best teachers, among them Henry t-lenshall, R.A., of London: Osip Linde of l'Ecole des Beaux Arts, in Paris: in New York at the Metropolitan Art Institute. Then as an exhibitor her work is well known, as she frequently exhibits with the Society of Chicago Artists, of which she is a member. She has for several years been the instructor in the Art department of N. W. C. The object of the department is to give a thorough training in the principles of Art. The chief aim is to lay a thorough foundation for seeing and observing nature, and to develop skill in this art to be applied in practical life. The course in art begins with drawing from the flat in charcoal, crayon, and pencilg then drawing from still life, the antique and the living model, painting in oil and water colors. Pyrography, China paint- ing, tooled leathering, and stenciling are also taught. The studio is open to all the art students each week-day, and on Thursdays and Fridays Mrs. Smith passes criticism upon the work done and gives lessons. During Commencement week an exhibit is held in the Library, this exhibit being representative of the Work done in the department during the year. The quality of the work thus exhibited is proof of the excellent work done in this department. 69 NORTI-IWESTERN SPECTRUM F. W. UMBREIT, ROSE UMBREIT, Treasurer.

The Commercial Department was organized in l872. It is the aim of this depart- ment to thoroughly prepare young men and young women for efficient service in the business world. Two courses of instruction are offeredg the shorter course can be com- pleted in six months, while the longer course requires nine months. The curriculum is divided into five departments, viz., Theory, Intermediate, Ad- vanced, Business Practice, and Banking. In the first three departments the student is thoroughly grounded in the principles of bookkeeping, and the forms of negotiable paper. After completing this work the student is advanced to the Business Practice Department, where he assumes the position of the business man. l-le is provided with college currency, blanks and legal forms, etc., and is directed through a practical course of training that is very complete. The Banking Set is the last advance, where the student makes the proper entries for such transactions as paying checks and drafts, discounting notes, paying New York drafts, receiving notes for collection, certifying checks, issuing certificates of deposit, selling New York drafts, receiving deposits and other similar transactions. By writing up this set the student becomes thoroughly familiar with banking transactions. The commercial course includes bookkeeping, arithmetic, spelling, penmanship, commercial law, commercial geography and rapid calculation. The purpose of our course in shorthand and typewriting is to prepare young men and young women for office work. We teach the Eclectic system of shorthand, and use the Underwood typewriter. Classes are formed in all of the subjects that are taught in the commercial depart- ment, including bookkeeping. Class instruction is recognized as being vastly superior to individual instruction. By using the class instruction plan, much better results are secured than is possible by the individual instruction plan. The discussions in the class- room regarding difficult entries are helpful to every member of the class, and there is created in the class-room a friendly rivalry such as one will not find where the individual instruction plan is used. The students who enter our business colleges are accustomed to the class instruction method, and if they can study bookkeeping in the same manner as they have studied other subjects, they will do much better work. Among our graduates may be found bookkeepers, merchants, farmers, dealers in real estate, commission merchants, lawyers, ministers, bankers, manufacturers, teachers, doctors, cashiers, stenographers, private secretaries, court reporters, editors and publishers. Our students are entitled to all the advantages of the College. During the school year short addresses are delivered on such subjects as: "The New York Draft," "Our Exchange System," "The Clearing I-lousef, and many other practical subjects. An annual trip is also taken to Chicago to visit places of interest, where the members of the class have an opportunity to see the practical side of business life. It will thus be seen that every one who completes our course of study will be well equipped for the responsibilities of life. 73 REFERENCE ROOM-CARNEGIE LIBRARY-BOCK STACKS MUSEUM SPECIMEN-THE BEAVER.

Morro: 'iONWARD, STEP BY STEP, UPWARD.,' Philo is the oldest of Northwestern's Literary Societies. It was organized in IS66, and Prof. G. W. Sindlinger had the honor of being first president. While Philo is the oldest society, she has not grown feeble with age, but today as ever holds her motto-"Onward, Step by Step, Upwardi'-high before her members and urges them on to their best endeavors and noblest aims. Philo stands for thorough work, for the highest and fullest realization of the personality of all her members. It is her aim to have every program contribute something to this end, both for the listener and the one who takes part, Whether in essay, debate, reading, story or extempore speech. The papers given this year have admirably measured up to this standard. They have shown earnest, painstaking research and careful preparation. They have embodied a wide and comprehensive range of subjects and have been interesting and instructive to all. The programs are enlivened by musical selections and choice readings, thus combining entertainment of the highest cultural value with intellectual development. The programs of the past year have been especially strong, and their high literary merit reflects credit upon officers and members alike. The policy of thorough Work and strictly literary programs has won friends for Philo and this year has been a record-breaker for new members. Philo's members are successful leaders in school and out of school, because they learn to be thorough. They begin that way in Philo. Philo Hall is an inviting meeting place, well furnished, well lighted, and com- fortable in every respect-an ideal place for literary endeavor. Through this medium Philo greets her friends and alumni and invites them to visit her hall again. To prospective students we extend a hearty and earnest invitation to visit the oldest, the largest, the truest, and the best literary society at N. W. C. We assure you a fraternal welcome. OFFICERS.

Morro: UWORTHY EFFORTS ARE IMMORTALI' Since 1870, Cliosophic Society has been a potent factor in literary culture at N. W. C. On October l0th of that year the society was born. C. F. Rassweiler was the first president and Mrs. Prof. H. C. Smith the first secretary. In preference to "Golden Fleece" the name "Cliosophic', was chosen. The first meetings were held in the Latin room on the main floor. Since 1876 the weekly "camp-fires" have been held in the hall in use at present. From Cliois very genesis the object of her existence has been the promotion of the social and intellectual life of our institution, the cultivation of a rare love for literatureg the acquisition of cleanness and keenness of thought and terseness and accuracy of ex- pression. Deliberation is given to social and educational tendencies, the rapidly growing sciences of sociology, political economy and theology, to scientific movements, their revo- lutionary and stimulating effects, and to the current events of national and cosmopolitan interest. The value of art is emphasized. The poetry of life is proclaimed. The ethics and aesthetics of life receive merited devotion. Evenings are spent with the masters of verse, prose, music, sculpture and painting. Educators, statesmen, orators, reformers, generals, monarchs, diplomats, inventors, explorers, navigators and clivines are studied. The value of the individual is not lost sight of. Every opportunity for personal develop- ment is given. Cliosophic has always fostered the art and spirit of debate and given prominence to extemporaneous speech. Musical numbers enrich each program, while frequently short original stories are presented. Cliosophic at present leads in membership. Her hall is attractive and comfortable. In this literary age she cherishes a genuine and loyal spirit for the purest and loftiest literature of life. She strives for that complete mastery of self that knows no defeat. Her goal is perfection, only attained by the rallying of the entire personality. She aims at the symmetrical development of the whole man. CFFICERS. FIRST SEMESTER- SECOND SEMESTER.

In the year i877 both the Philologian and Cliosophic Societies were enjoying large memberships. The officers were unable to give each member a part on the program at reasonable intervals, hence the question arose, "Can these bones live?H In answer to this question some of the enterprising members of each organization obtained the permission of the Faculty and launched the Laconian Society. Laconian was chosen as an appropriate name and motto for the new organization. It was borrowed from the inhabitants of Laconia, a district in the southeastern part of the Peloponnesus in Greece. These people had the reputation of being terse and forceful in speech, and of being able to express much in few words. The purpose of the organization was to give the students of the College and Pre- paratory Departments, both of whom were eligible as members at this time, an opportunity to develop in the art of public speaking, reading, and debating. From the beginning the success of the undertaking was assured. The membership increased steadily, the meetings were well attended and the programs were well rendered. About i905 membership was restricted to students of the Preparatory Depart- ment. In this way the Society became a feeder for the college societies. In i907 the membership was considered too large for one Society, and by consent of the Faculty the Websterian Society was organized. The work of the past year is highly commendable. The appearance of the hall has been improved with new carpet, curtains, chandeliers and several pictures. Thirty-five interested, active members have furnished excellent programs at the regular Friday even- ing meetings. I-low well we have succeeded in cultivating a concise, brief, pithy manner of expression remains to be seen. We shall always look back with pleasure upon those friendly Word rivalries held on the Laconian platform. OFFICERS. FIRST SEMESTER. SECOND SEMESTER. President ...... . . .E. D.

MoTTo: "To THE STARS THROUGH D1FF1cULTiEs." june I7, l907, dates the beginning of Websterian Society. Up to this time only one English society was open to preparatory students. Since it was impossible for one society to meet the growing demand of the social and intellectual life of the preparatory school, it became necessary to organize a sister society. After much deliberation on the part of the faculty and different members of the school, preliminary measures were taken towards the organization of a new society: accordingly on the above date a constitution was adopted and signed by fourteen who became its charter members. In the fall of l908 the society began its literary work as an organization of thirty members. In spite of difficulties its members and friends have spared no effort to make it a success. It is this effort united with an earnest working spirit, which has made it possible for Websterian to grow and advance to its present standing. Although Websterian is still in her infancy and can not look back over a long and glorious past, she may with confidence look forward to a bright and prosperous future. The object of the society is to develop the powers of thought, and clearness of ex- pression in oratory, debate and literary work. Special attention is given to work in debate and extemporaneous speaking. Consideration is also given to subjects of scientific progress and current events of national interest. The work in general affords every opportunity for development of the mental abilities as well as efficiency in public speaking. The present year has thus far been a most pleasant and profitable one, and as we grow into a position to make a reasonable comparison between Websterian and other societies we realize more fully what our society means in the development of efficient men for Northwestern. We feel confident that Websterian will prove most beneficial, and that the common sentiment and desire of its members is to do all in their power for her name and fame. OFFICERS. Fl-RST SEMESTER.

NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM Philorhetorien. Morro: "DURcH's SCHOENE ZUM GUTEN.,, The practical literary needs of the first German students of Northwestern College called for a German literary society. Accordingly in September, IS66, shortly after the founding of the college at Plainfield, Ill., such a society was organized. Upon the suggestion of Prof. Heidner the name HDie Philorhetorien Gesellschaft" was adopted. The society met every week in one of the recitation rooms of the old college building. The beginning was of course small and the meeting-place in itself unattractive, but all persons who preferred the German and especially those preparing themselves for the German ministry found the practical exercise very helpful. When the college was transferred to Naperville in l87O, a separate hall was secured for the Philorhetorien society on the third floor of the main building. The room was suit- ably equipped and in October, l87O, the society began to hold its regular meetings in the new hall. The membership now increased considerably, the interest became quite intense and the work was effectively carried on. For several years the society was quite well satisfied with the plain white walls of the hall, but when its finances had increased sufficiently, the society had its hall decorated in the durable style which has remained beau- tiful to this day. The opportunities offered by this society in literary work and debating have been well improved by many German students. It is here that men have laid the foundation for future usefulness in their life work as ministers and teachers in the German language. The motto: "Through the Beautiful to the Good," has no doubt inspired many a Ger- man student in his ardent study of the mother tongue. None who are preparing them- selves for German work can afford to miss the opportunities offered by this society. OFFICERS. FIRST SEMESTER. SECOND SEMESTER. President ...... .... H . lf..

NORTHWESTERNCTTSPECTRUCM The Christian Associations. The Christian Associations are the most cosmopolitan organizations at Northwestern College. The opportunities and privileges offered by the literary, oratorical, and debating societies are limited to certain classes, but in the Christian Associations all students, irre- spective of intellectual attainment or vocational differences, meet upon an equal basis and all strive to be mutually helpful to one another. The.Young lVlen's Christian Association is the second oldest organization of its kind in the State. It was organized in the month of March, l872, by Mr. Robert Weidensall, first Secretary of the International Committee, with the assistance of the now sainted President Smith, others of the faculty, and a few leading students of the College. Three years later, on November 4, 1875, through the efforts of the late Mrs. N. C. Knicker- bocker, who was for many years an efficient teacher and preceptress of Northwestern College, the Young Womenis Christian Association was organized. For a time this organization was purely local, but in 1884 it became permanently affiliated with the State organization. F rom the very beginning these organizations have enjoyed a steady growth in numbers and influence, until at the present time their membership is nearly co- extensixe with the enrollment of the college and their infiuence is felt in every form of College activity. The aim and object of these organizations is to make the Kingdom of Ctod a prac- tical reality in the life of every man and woman in the institution, to create and maintain a social and religious influence in the College community that will be conducive to the development of noble Christian character and to enlist men and women in world-wide Christian Service. For the realization of these aims regular devotional meetings, including fellowship, gospel, evangelistic, and life work meetings are held, Bible and Mission study is promoted: social functions and activities are carried ong a strong and far-reaching depu- tation department is maintained: a well-equipped reading-room is provided: an efficient labor bureau is instituted: and strong delegations are sent to the State and National Con- ventions and Conferences. The evangelistic efforts culminate each year in a series of evangelistic meetings held during the Week of Prayer in November. Last November these meetings, held under the leadership of Bishop S. C. Breyfogel, D.D., were very successful in every respect. Thus it becomes evident that the Christian Associations exercise a most important function in the College community. They influence the young men and women in the most plastic period of their lives and surround them with an atmosphere that cannot but generate staunch Christian characters. A more detailed account of the Association work will be found in the following pages. 94 1 ' '-"-fries' '3 ' -7- -- 'Yi-' I f "'i A -' Y. W. C. A. ROOM Y. M. C. A. HALL. 95 .

A. presents to every man of the Institution an opportunity for the development of the higher Christian character. Such infiuences are brought to bear upon the student that he cannot but see the need and importance of a daily, devotional study of the Bible. The keeping of the "Morning Watch" is especially encouraged. For the purpose of bringing the Bible closer to the hearts and minds of the men, in addition to the historical courses required in the College Curriculum, a number of devotional courses under student leadership are offered. Dur- ing the last year ten such courses Were provided. Among them were: "Will of Godf' by Wrightg "Social Significance of the Teachings of Jesusf, by -lenksg "Life of Paul," by Leacockg "Teachings of Jesus and l-lis Apostlesf' by Bosworthg "Studies in Old Testament Characters," by White: "Studies in the Gospel of John," by Adamsg "Studies in the Life of Jesusf' by Sallmong 'iLife and Works of Jesus according to St. Markf, by Murray: "Studies in the Life of Paulf, by Sallmon, and HI-low to Work for Christf' by Torrey. One hundred and forty-seven men were enrolled in these courses. They were divided into fifteen group classes and met every Thursday evening from 6:l5 to 7:00 oiclock. This hour, known as the "Quiet Hourf, was given to an informal and a devotional study of the Bible. There was an average attendance of 109 men at each meeting. The Bible Study Department of the Y. W. C. A. offers similar courses of Bible study to the association members. During the past year there were sixty-two girls enrolled in the eight group classes which were conducted by student leaders. These Quiet Hour classes met each Tuesday evening at 6:l5 and spent three-quarters of an hour in devo- tion and discussion of the lessons studied in the daily Bible readings. Courses were offered in "Social Significance of the Teachings of Jesusf, 'iLife of Christf' "Life of Paulf, "Men of the Old Testamentf, and "C1od's Methods of Training Workers." A joint normal class was also conducted for the group leaders of both associations. The department also provided for a Personal Workeris class, which meets once a Week, study- ing Torrey's "How to Bring Men to Christ." The large attendance and the interest manifested in the Quiet Hour classes of both associations evinces the fact that this method of Bible study appeals to the college student. 96 -I I - E 3-f - N " .

Indeed, they find a very prominent place If in the lives of the students and are the means of deter- 1 mining the life work of a considerable number. Laboring faithfully toward the realiza- tion of certain definite results, the missionary committees of the Young lVlen's and Young Womenls Christian Associations have drawn up a policy which they purpose to follow. Among the most important aims to be realized are the following: l. To conduct a systematic study in Missions. In the past year six courses of mission study were offered, with the result that 160 students availed themselves of the opportunity of these excellent studies. The graduates of both college and seminary were solicited for donations toward increasing the missionary library, which resulted in the addition of thirteen volumes. 2. To promote systematic and proportionate giving to foreign missions. Several years ago the faculty and students pledged themselves to raise S800 annually for the support of a missionary in China. Rev. E.. E. Kelhofer, whose cut appears on this page, is the chosen representative. At the canvas made in the beginning of the school year, S914 was pledged and is being paid in monthly installments. 3. To bring convincingly before every student the most significant facts of the mis- sionary enterprise with the view to making them its intelligent promoters. To realize this end, missionary pamphlets are circulated, personal interviews concerning the choice of a life-work are held, and regular monthly as well as other missionary meetings are held, in one of which, at least, the claims of the missionary calling are presented to the students. 4. To pursue a constant intercession for missions. Once per month the members of the committees meet with the Student Volunteer Band in united prayer. Besides this each member of the committees unites with another student not a member of either com- mittee in daily prayer for a definite field. This not only stimulates interest, but also a study of that particular field and consequently more intelligent prayer in its behalf. 5. To bring the facts of the missionary enter- prise before our church and especially our young people, in order to win them for the promotion of the cause. This aim is in a measure realized through our church periodicals, through personal work during the summer and holiday vacations, and by sending out letters to the Young People's Alliance Conference Branch Presidents, urging them to give special atten- tion to missionary activity at their respective state con- ventions. Thus is carried on a great and noble work amidst other strenuous college activities. Nor will the interest in this department wane as long as it is headed by men and women whose vision is broad, whose lives are consecrated to unselfish service in the interest of humanity. 97 Rev. E.

H l We're looking for you! The members of the social committees will be the first to greet you upon your arrival in Naperville. We aim to make it pleasant for you by assisting you to find rooming and boarding places, and then delivering your baggage to your rooms. We endeavor to remove all feelings of strangeness by helping you to enroll, by showing you about the college buildings, and by introducing you to one another and to members of the faculty. We are anxious to make ourselves useful to you in every way possible. Our supreme purpose is to win souls to Christ through Christian fellowship, to raise the standards of the social life of the college by our own Christian living, thus leading others with whom we come in contact to seek higher ideals in society. To bring every man in touch with every other man, the committee of the Young Men's Christian Association arranges for a "Stag Social" at the beginning of the year and again after the holidays. These socials are gotten up for a good sociable time, and we usually have it. A membership banquet of almost inestimable educational value is held at some convenient time during the year. This banquet affords an opportunity of attending a function of really high order. Other events are provided for as occasion demands. The committee of the Young Women's Christian Association also arranges for a social to be given at the beginning of each semester. These socials are for the purpose of forming acquaintances with the girls and for a good social time. Other socials are given as are deemed advisable. Among the special events of this past year was a "Xmas Parry," where the girls all enjoyed a Christmas tree, Christmas presents and Christmas refreshments. A formal reception was also given that was very enjoyable as well as bene- ficial. Besides providing a wholesome social life, the committee is ever mindful of the needs of the sick girls of the institution, and it also has the spiritual welfare of the girls at heart. 98 d Pl ll 'flfllfl MII' ' ll I l ffl WW l l 5 WZ l nxt 0 is ia unc noon f ff' if ffzl ci .

The walls and woodwork are finished in 'JMXA N Q VN light, agreeable tintsg large, low, deep-seated windows ad- J mit an abundance of light: one wall supports a long rack, which neatly displays the labeled tops of numerous stiff gray magazine covers: at the east end of the room stands a low cupboard, with a top that slants sharply upward from waist-height and on this lie several wide-open newspapers, the furniture of the room consists of two great mission tables and a generous supply of stout, comfortable chairs -indeed the dominant tone of the room is one of congeniality and inviting comfort. If the room could speak it would surely say: "Step right in and make yourself at home." Such a room deserves to be popular. And it is the most popular, most oft-fre- quented place at Northwestern College. Its charm is irresistible. It is the center of gravity at Northwestern College. The saying, "All paths lead to Rome," was fraught with significance to the people of a certain age. "All paths lead to the reading roomn is an expression of what every student at Northwestern knows and appreciates. The reading room is the first room that the new student learns to know when he enters college. It is the last he says farewell to when he leaves. l-lere at all times of the day, early and late, you will find students in various positions of ease and repose, some reclining in their chairs, others bending over the large tables, still others leaning against the newspaper rack, but all alike reading, reading, reading. This popular room is furnished, hnanced and supervised by the two student asso- ciations of the College. Realizing the significance of the reading room as an educational factor and as a source of pure and wholesome recreation, they have made provision ac- cordingly. Qn the tables and in the racks may be found many of the standard publica- tions of the day. They cover the entire range, from the light and amusing to the serious and instructive, with the exception of the heavier educational journals, which are kept in the library reading room. Besides secular and religious publications there are two lead- ing Chicago papers on the rack daily. Many an hour of pure delight can the student spend in this room. From the time of his entrance as an academic, preparatory or college student till the time of his gradua- tion the reading room stands open to receive him, without favor or discrimination, when- ever he cares to enter. Be he merry or sad, hopeful or despondent, it can sympathize with him and from its bounteous store offer him food suited to his every mood. 99 L, ."k""7' K' HL' Df:PuTFmoN UEPHRTMENT ' X l The Deputation Department was organized in November, l905. It was the result of a long-felt need for systematic supervision of the special Christian work carried on by our students outside the College community. It was believed that the frequent calls for students to assist in Christian work could be met more adequately and systematically and that an aggressive system of extension work could be carried on with greater success if the deputation work were organized as a regular department of the Young Menis Chris- tian Association. The purpose of the work is three-fold. It aims CU to answer all calls and supply men for all occasions: KZ, to carry on evangelistic work under the direction of the local pastors, and to establish preaching points in such places where none existed previously: Q35 to send out Gospel Teams to do evangelistic workg and to organize mission study and Bible Study classes wherever desirable.

Its purpose is to secure desired employment for those men who are earning their way through school, either wholly or in part. It is not only helpful to the men who are in school, but it is also an organization of convenience to the people of Naperville who desire to employ student labor. At Northwestern College manual labor is not considered to be beneath the dignity of any one. On the contrary a large per cent of the students are men and women who are depending upon their own resources to take them through college. It is not at all an unusual sight to see a group of students, including men classi- fled all the way from the Academic department to the Senior in College, making their way early on a Saturday morning to some near-by farm to help shock corn, dig potatoes, saw wood, or do some other form of manual labor. Besides earning a good dayis wages, a jolly good time is had in the way of recreation, and the excellent dinner they have thrown in, because of its contrast to their usual bill of fare, is not soon forgotten. Other men secure work from the people living within the city of Naperville itself, such as mow- ing lawns, beating carpets, caring for horses, etc. Again, there are families who wish to secure students to work for their room or perhaps room and board. These various oppor- tunities for employment are reported to the Labor Bureau and it in turn finds the men to do the work. The work of the Bureau is far greater than the statistical reports would indicate, for much employment which is secured either directly or indirectly through the Bureau is never reported. During the past year fifty different students have reported that they secured work at different times through the Bureau, and the amount earned by these men was approximately s600. 101 ui 102 VOLUNTEER BAND.

It is composed of men and women of the two Christian Associa- tions who have declared it their purpose to go out as foreign missionaries. Though small in number, there being at present but eighteen members, the Band wields a strong influ- ence and is a potent factor in creating missionary zeal and enthusiasm among the students. The object of the local organization is two-fold: l, To awaken and maintain among the Christian students an intelligent and active interest in foreign missions. 2, To help each other as intending missionaries to prepare for life work. To accomplish these ends meetings are held every Sunday morning at 8 o'clock. These meetings are variously conducted. Sometimes they are devotional in character, one of the members taking charge: at other times missions are studied, mission lands, peoples, religions, methods of work, etc., being taken up and profitably discussed, then quite frequently missionaries, home on furlough, address the meetings, giving practical advice and encouragement. To arouse missionary interest beyond the institution, deputation bands are sent out to conduct missionary rallies, while more frequently volunteers go out alone to give mis- sionary addresses and disseminate missionary information. It was only four years after the organization of the Student Volunteer Movement at Northfield in 1888 that the local organization was effected. Since that time thirty- three volunteers have gone out as missionaries and to-day N. W. C. is represented in five foreign lands by twenty-six missionaries. OFFICERS.

The movement to abolish the liquor traffic is at last gaining its deserved recognition. The evil of the saloon is being realized, not only by religious and moral leaders, but by sociologists and economists, by medical men and athletes, by employers and labor leaders alike. Whereas a few years ago the advocate of prohibition was ridiculed as a fanatic and refused a hearing, to-day the solution of the liquor problem is being looked upon more and more as the greatest question of our day, and the whole country is discussing prohibition. The time is ripe for action and something will be done. At such a time, and in such a condition of affairs it becomes imperative that the facts in the case be dis- covered, that true and accurate information be given out, and that the leaders of thought and action be lined up on the right side. It was to help meet these needs that the Intercollegiate Prohibition Association was organized. 4 The object of this organization is the equipment of college men and women for service and leadership in the settlement of the liquor problem. It aims to promote a broad, systematic study of that problem and related social and political questionsg and also, to enlist men for active service against the saloon. Since the beginning of this or- ganization, it has spread rapidly until it is now connected with the Colleges and Universi- ties of twenty different states, and is, next to the Christian Associations, one of the largest student organizations in America. It is no more than proper, therefore, that Northwestern College, where the pro- hibition sentiment is very strong, should be affiliated with this Intercollegiate Associa- tion. After many months of effort on the part of the students particularly interested, per- mission was at last secured, and the beginning of the year '09-'IO witnessed the organiza- tion of the local League. Since that time new members have been added until now the membership is numbered at ninety. Monthly meetings have been held during the year, at which lectures and prepared programs have been presented. Dr. C-. Kirn, who was appointed by the faculty to supervise the work of the League, favored the League with two lectures on the "Psychol- ogy of Alcoholism." They were deep studies in a comparatively new field and were greatly appreciated. On March I4, l9l0, the Local Prohibition Oratorical Contest was held, to select a representative for the State Intercollegiate Prohibition Contest. Mr. Wm. E. C-rote won first place with an oration entitled, "The Man of the Hour." In the State Contest, held later at Greenville College, this oration took third place with a prize of ten dollars in gold. 106 NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM The Oratorical Contest system maintained by the Prohibition Association is the most extensive student oratorical series in America. lt is the only one which offers a great National Contest with national honors for excellence in oratory. The series embraces four steps: The Local, State, Interstate, and National Contests. In the National Con- tests, which are held every two years, students from widely separate parts of the country are brought together in competition. The scope and significance of these contests may be better realized when it is known that in the competition leading up to the last National Contest, more than six hundred original orations, all dealing with some phase of the liquor problem, were prepared and delivered in contests scattered over twenty states. The Intercollegiate Association also conducts a series of journalistic Contests, the aim of which is to stimulate greater journalistic work on the part of the students and to secure greater publication of matters pertaining to the prohibition reform. Still another line of work carried on by the Association is the course of League studies. Three of these courses, each for a yearis study, have been carefully outlined by the General Secre- tary and published in the Hlntercollegiate Statesman." They are: "The Social De- mands for Prohibitionvg Mlihe Solution, A Comparison of Nlethodsng and "Govern- ment and the Liquor Traflicf' These studies very largely form the basis for the monthly programs and discussions in the local leagues. It is greatly to be hoped that this new organization at Northwestern will be kept up. Its oratorical contests and its study classes serve a noble purpose. May the Prohibition League come to occupy a permanent place in the life of the college, at least so long as that evil exists, which it purposes to eradicate. 4. " 1, L ,j i l l" m0 xx, J . I t ' 17?

The Oratorical Association of the Preparatory School annually conducts a contest in oratory open to members of the two upper classes of the Preparatory Department. The contest for the "I-leatherton Prizesn in oratory and declamation, the former for the men and the latter for the ladies of the Freshman class, furnishes an opportunity for the development of the Oratorical ability of our aspiring Freshmen. For the past four' years a Sophomore Inter-Collegiate debate has been held annually, this year with Wheaton College, the three previous years with Ripon College. The Oratorical and Debating Association of the Collegiate department is composed of the members of the three upper classes and annually conducts contests both in oratory and debate. The winner of the Local Oratorical contest represents the college in the Northern Illinois Oratorical League contest. At the present time this league is composed of the three colleges-Lombard, Wheaton, and Northwestern. Opportunity for debate is furnished in the annual Inter-Society debates and the annual debates of the Illinois Tri-Collegiate Debating. League, composed of Illinois Wesleyan University, James Milli- kin University, and Northwestern College. At present the various Associations are in a prosperous condition and keen interest is taken in all the contests. The enviable record of the forensic combatants of the past will ever serve as an incentive to contestants in the future. OFFICERS. ORATORICAL AND DEBATING ASSOCIATION.

THE CONTEST AT GALESBURG. The Seventh Annual Contest of the North- ern Illinois Inter-Collegiate Oratorical League was held at Ctalesburg April 30, l909. North- Western College was represented in this con- test by Mr. H. B. Schaeffer, the winner of the local contest for the Good Prize. The subject of Mr. Schaefferls oration was "The Policy of Bismarck." The excellency of his manuscript and the forcefulness of his delivery is shown by the fact that the judges awarded him three firsts in thot and composition and two firsts in delivery. North-Western holds first place in our Inter-Collegiate Oratorical League and it remains for her future orators to main- tain the high standard she now has. y THE Coon PRIZES. Dr. R. l-l. Good, of Chicago, a for- mer student of the college, very generously offers an annual gift of twenty-five dollars to the winners of our local Oratorical Contest, fifteen dollars being given for first honors and ten dollars for second. The last annual contest was held on March l9, l9l0. First honors were won by ,lVlr. C. I. Roller with the ora- tion, usavonarola, the Martyr," while second honors were taken by Mr. W. S. C-amertsfelder, with the oration, "True Democracy." Both of these orations were well written and well delivered. Mr. Roller possesses an excellent voice, strong and clear, and he uses it with line effect. His delivery is easy, forceful and dra- matic. Victory in the local contest car- ries with it the honor of representing North-Western in the next lnter-Col- legiate Contest. 114 C.I.ROLLER N o R T H W ES T E R N si3iE as U M T ESTHER E. HATZ.

Goodwin, an honored citizen of Naperville, has ever manifested an active interest in the forensic development of the men and women of North-Western. In order to stimulate and encourage oratorical effort, he offers to the Freshman class two annual prizes of 51510 each, the one for declamation, the other for oratory. These prizes are known as the l-leatherton Prizes in honor of Judge Goodwinis beautiful home and fine estate, ul-leathertonf' The last annual contest was held on June 4, 1909. First honors in declamation were won by Miss Esther Hatz, with the selection "As the lVlorn Rose." Miss I-latz possesses rare ability in impersonation and in vividness of descrip- tion. Mr. l-larry Trautman won first honors in oratory with an oration on "Wendell Phillipsf, Mr. Trautman's style and delivery are characterized by that firmness and de- liberation that carry conviction to his audience. The high quality of these annual con- tests is indicative of the beneficial results that are being realized in consequence of Judge C-oodwin's noble gift. THE ELGIN PRIZES. The Honorable William E. Grote of Elgin, Illinois, in l909 made it possible for an annual prize of ten dollars to be awarded to those winning first and second places in the annual oratorical contest of the Preparatory School. First prize, 56.002 second prize, 34.00. This prize is known as the Elgin Prize, in honor of the donor, who resides at Elgin. The annual contests are held in April and are open to members of the third and fourth year classes. First place in the l909 fe contest was awarded to Mr. Otto E. Jahn of the third year oT'ro JAHN.

T l T l P I NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM Canadian Club of North -Western College. Since North-Western College represents the Evangelical Association as her insti- tution of learning, we may expect students from nearly every country where the Church is represented. Thus it is not strange that Canadians should wend their way toward Naperville and make "Old North-Western" their Alma Mater. ln earlier days the Canadian boys had various ways of keeping up their social life, either in the boarding club or planning a twenty-fourth of May celebration, "Queen Victoria's Birthday Anniversary." It is said on that day the Union jack could be seen unfurled to the breeze and a genuine Canadian Outing was given. Those days are past and gone, as is also the old-time rivalry, but social life still exists. It was but recently that the thought of some organization, for the benefit of the Canadian boys, was matured, and the result is the "Canadian Club." This Club was organized in 1909 for the purpose of having a strictly Canadian meeting where we might be at liberty to discuss vital questions of our Church work, as well as keep in touch with all live questions relative to our country. Another object of our organization is to keep people at home in touch with our College and create an interest if possible for a large representation at North-Western. The membership of the Club at first numbered twenty-four active members, with all who were or are British subjects residing in Naperville or in direct connection with the school as honorary members. The meetings of the Club are fairly well attended, especially when we consider the multiplicity of work in which our students are engaged. The regular time of meeting is every third Thursday evening. Sometimes regular programs are prepared, at other times honorary members address us on some interesting Canadian question. Then again a live question is chosen for the basis of discussion. Thus we are not only securing training for active work, but we are becoming better acquainted with our country. The Club has as yet not begun any distinctly Canadian games, except association football. Every fall several games or matches are played between the two countries. This is to determine who is to hold the championship of North-Western. There are many other sports, such as hockey and lacrosse, etc. Why not start the ball rolling in these games? The Club is in a prosperous condition and we bespeak for it every success. 122 XE! ,ll X 5-Q!-.

It is a distinctly student paper, being edited and published by students who are chosen by a student organization, the Chronicle Publishing Co. It is issued monthly and contains a representation of the various departments and the leading activities of the College. Although some space is devoted to "the lighter veinf' still the purpose of the Chronicle is not to become a com- pilation of stale jokes or of peculiar happenings. Neither is the Chronicle merely a local publication giving an account of the past week's events and which after being hastily perused may profitably be thrown into the waste-basket. But its purpose is, as its name implies, to chronicle the chief events of the College which are of interest not only locally but to all who are in any way connected with or interested in the College. Among the many interesting and instructive articles that are published are the winning orations, outlines of the inter-collegiate and inter-society debates, Commencement orations, essays, etc. These give value to the Chronicle inasmuch as they are of interest not only on the eve of publication but also in after years. Inasmuch as it represents the different phases of College life and is a product of the student body, the Chronicle may be said to be a fair representation of North-Western College. 124 -sf' " , 3 !d2gLN if ' 'L 12 ff Q- h ffl, 7 , .Q 4 . 4 125 10 109-v FF STA RONICLE CH Draeger.

Every progressive Christian College Association endeavors to interest new students in the various activities of Association work. One means of arousing interest is the l-land Book published annually by the Young Menis and the Young Women's Christian Associations. The l-land Book is in the form of a small pocket memorandum and is presented to each student at the beginning of the College year. Not only does the Hand Book extend a hearty welcome to new students, but it gives a comprehensive view of all Association activities. It contains the names of the officers, the names of the committee chairmen, the policies, and the historical sketches. Students are also introduced to all the College activities. The student, the Literary and the Oratorical Organizations, together with the College Songs, Yells, Lecture Course, Records of Track and Field, are all given full recognition. Part of the pages of the book are left blank. This makes the book valuable and convenient as a memorandum. The local advertisers make the Hand Book a possibility. MISCELLANEOUS PUBLICATIONS. Other publications such as folders and circulars are issued from time to time as occasion demands These are descriptive of the various departments of the College, of the activities that are being carried on either by the College authorities or by the stu- dents themselves and of the present needs of the institution Mention should here also be made of the College Catalogue issued annually containing a complete explanation of the work the College is doing Through these various means the constituency of the school is kept in touch with the progress and needs of the institution 127 7 Q Q - I .

"Gabriel's Trumpetf, according to the statement of its editorial staff, is a "publica- tion designed for the Students and Faculty of North-Western Collegef, A unique fea- ture of the publication is the fact that the editors and publishers belong to the class of men who, because of their modesty or some other reason, do not assume credit for their own Work. Its purpose is to allay the "present tendency of North-Western toward the "ding bow-wow." Consequently the publication is irregular, being issued only when in the mind of some Knocker such tendency becomes exceptionally strong. The sub- scription price, "Your time to read it,', places the paper beyond the means of any thought- ful person and hence its influence upon college life is slight. For further particulars apply to Gabriel, chief blower. 128 . L l :lf-1,1 . l SEQ? '-fs. glq . Tima- n .i1'L X04-JK, .V 77 ,qx.5,glqxz..... fm AX AQ?g-4r.

Baseball is the popular, the national sport, and yet it had only a small place in North-Western's schedule of athletics last spring. As soon as the weather permitted, the few students interested in baseball practiced regularly. After several weeks of such practice, the team was chosen and the intercollegiate games were begun. Although the team played eight games and won only two, yet we do not feel entirely discouraged. The boys always played a clean, fair game, and taking everything into consideration, the con- tinued faithfulness in practice, the help of Coach Enck, the excellent harmony among the players, and the constant endeavor on the part of the team to represent their institu- tion nobly, we must conclude that the season was not alto- gether a failure. This, in brief, is a typical example of baseball at North- Western. Considering that it is "the" national game, we be- lieve that it should hold a larger place in our college athletics. But this can be realized only when we have better equipment. More students would then have a chance to get into the game and there would be a greater interest. A good athletic field, large enough for two well-equipped diamonds, should be pro- cured, and every student given a chance to play. Arrange- ments should also be made for indoor work during the winter. By the hearty co-operation of our Faculty, our well-organized Athletic Association, and our students in general, the necessary interest could be created and baseball would then hold the place it deserves to hold at North-Western.

Prominent among the athletics of North-Western stands track. By track and field sports was first included only the work on Field Day, on which day the college classes competed to decide the championship of the school. Later this field was broadened out and inter-collegiate track meets were encouraged. Ever since she has entered these rela- tions, North-Western has more than held her own with the best teams of the State. For several years she laid valid claims to the championship as she had met and decisively defeated the strongest college teams. Only twice in her entire history has she met defeat in this line of athletics, once at Armour Institute and once at De Paul University, both in l908g not that she was espe- cially weak that year, but merely because her opponents were especially strong. Both of these meets were very close, the last event deciding the winner. Last year her record was again sustained. Although handicapped by the weather, and training facilities, North-Western was able to win all her meets. Both, however, were hotly contested and won by a small score. The outlook for the coming year is most encouraging. With most of last year's stars again in school, strongly strengthened by members of former teams, we look forward expectantly to a championship team in l9l0. Our records, both on track and field, compare most favorably with those of colleges of our size, and each year finds them steadily approaching the best records for these events. We are proud of the spirit which makes them what they are. Truly they are worthy of the institution they represent. 137 '-li. . 1 ., QM? NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM N. W. C. Records. EVENT.

CARL GAMERTSFELDER, Champion. TENNIS. Tennis is one of our popular sports. Its popularity consists in the fact that it is everybodyis game and that it furnishes an excellent means of out-door recreation for both the ladies and the gentlemen. The tennis season for '08-'09 was a very successful one. An active interest was maintained throughout the entire year. The courts were filled every day the weather permitted playing. Early in the fall arrangements were made for a fall tournament in singles. About twenty-five men entered the tournament and an in- teresting series of contests followed. A number of amateurs who appeared in this tourna- ment did excellent work and showed up some "fine goodsn for the future. The finals were won by Carl Gamertsfelder, '09. The addition of a new court opened the spring season with a "boom" As soon as the courts were in shape, they were filled with players from morning till night. The fact that about one hundred names were scheduled every day shows that nearly everyone was enjoying the game. Early plans were made to have the Inter-class League tourna- ment begin as soon as possible. The Preparatory and Commercial schools comprise the Preparatory League, and the college classes and E. T. S. the College League. The winners of each league met to decide to whom the banner should be given as HN. W. C. Champs." The 4th year Preps from the Preparatory League and the Seniors from the College League competed in the finals. Kim and Schwab put up a hard game for the Seniors, but Click and Braun did just a little better, thus winning the School Champion- ship for the Preparatory League. Our facilities for Tennis are limited. We need better courts and a more thorough equipment in every way. Our courts need rebuilding and surfacing, etc. Here is an opportunity for some loyal alumnus to obtain popularity. 140 ' " ""ii"' EVO Schwartz, Kolb, Stephan, Hetz, Baumgartner, Freeman, Frank, Pullman, Schrammel, Miller, J.

Rather than have a class fight or a kill-fest, the Sophomores and Freshmen decided, in the fall of '09, to go a step farther and have a football game. The day for the "slaughter of the innocents"-so termed by the Sophomores-was set for October 30th. The looks of pity with which the confident Sophomores surveyed the Freshmen before the kick-off, changed very quickly into looks of surprise, then into fear, and lastly into despair, for their opponents had them at their mercy at all stages of the game. Their reverence for the older class, and their fear of the faculty's displeasure, so influ- enced the Freshmen, that they allowed the score to come out a tie. The dazzling rapidity of the Freshmen maneuvers was the most prominent feature of the game. The class of l9l2 now rashly insisted on another game for the following Satur- day, and the Freshmen consented, although they had planned on meeting a good team on that clay. ln this game, also, the "innocents" so completely bewildered the Hwiseacresu that some of the latter tried shooting baskets from the 45-yard line. Seeing that the Sophs were unable to run far enough to make a touchdown, without setting down to rest, the Freshmen magnanimously decided -not to score, and so this game, too, ended 0 to 0. Lack of space prevents our publishing a list of the killed and injured. The question of superiority has never been really settled, but-"nuff said." The Sophomore-Freshman Football Games. CFROM A SoPHoMoRE's STANDPOINTJ To lie down because an opposing line is made up of husky fellows is belittling, but to rush them down the field is ennobling. This was the dream of the Freshmen, who consequently challenged the Sophomores to a game of football. The Sophomores readily accepted, but decided among themselves that they would be lenient with the "Innocent Ones." g Everyone thought it would be a walk-away on the part of the Sophs. But during the game it was plain to be seen that the Sophomores were laying low, for whenever they got into a tight place the Soph line would lead the opposing squad in one direction when emerging out from the other side could be seen the Soph end, dashing for a 20-yard gain. Through lack of experience and the short-windedness of the Innocents, neither side was able to score. The Freshmen, even though they were outclassed, still wished for revenge, for they remembered the Train Robbery. Consequently they again challenged the sophomores to a game to be played a week later. During this game the Freshmen constantly broke the unwritten rule of football, that of keeping close to the pigskin. But one can never forget how the Sophs ran the ball down the field and were within two yards of the Freshman goal line, when the referee's shout was heard, "One minute to play, last down, two yards to gainf' The signal is given, but the whistle blows for time, and the play does not net the required distance, and the F reshette's prayers are answered. 143 AMERICAN SOCCER TEAM.

NoRTHWEsrERN SPECTRUM The Society of Research. The Society of Research was organized in the year l894. It is composed of the students and faculty of the Seminary. Meetings are held regularly every Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 7:15. The aim of this society is mutual improvement along intellectual and spiritual lines. However, more time is given to the devotional element than formerlyg in fact the society takes the place of the midweek prayer meeting for the faculty and students of the Seminary. The Society plays a prominent part in the life of the students. The routine work of the institution is of such a nature that the student deals with sacred things every day, and there is danger that because of the nature of his work he may become indifferent and careless with regard to sacred things and especially to his own spiritual needs: and While gaining knowledge on profound subjects his soul may be impoverished by the lack of devotional exercise. I-lowever in these meetings where students and professors meet and worship together, the Weary and hungry spiritual man is refreshed and strengthened, and the study of the greatest truths are taken up and pursued with new zeal and de- termination. As already referred to, occasionally some subjects pertaining to the work are treated or lectures are given by professors or others. The society is the bond of Christian fellowship that binds together professors and students in one common brotherhood of mutual helpfulness, Where all find themselves on the same plane. OFFICERS.

He had always admired, respected, and loved Hilda Sadge, a senior in the high school of their home town. Frank had never told Hilda that he loved her, at least not in words, for Hilda he thought was still too young. Her sister Mona was a senior in college and of course Frank's best friend. Mona was aware of F rank's plans for the future, though he knew it not. She always liked him and treated him as only a sister can. Frank since in College had considered himself a failure. He was no athlete, had no voice for singing, did not understand music, and could neither debate nor orate. He considered himself to be just a plain, common, student failure. Even his class work seemed to lag at times. One day, however, he was being tried out for the baseball team, but while up to bat in the crisis of the game, was "fanned out" by Phil Dexter of Dorax U., who had several times met Hilda and paid much attention to her. The defeat at the hands of Dexter aroused an ambition in Frank. He determined to keep on working harder than ever. ' Dexter had been chosen on the intercollegiate debating team of Dorax U., which was to meet Frank,s College the following year. Frank's heart burned to be in his college debating team and thus meet Dexter in forensic battle. He had, however, never debated before, but as the local oratorical contest was to be held in about two months, he determined to enter it. His object was to make a good showing, win second place, if possible, and thus, no doubt, be chosen as one on the intercollegiate debating team. He dare not win first in the oratorical contest, for he who represented the school in oratory would not be allowed to represent the school in debate. Frank worked day and night on his oration on "The Genius of Failuref' As he told Mona, it was to be a message, "to cheer the failure, written to those who fail, by one who failed." About a week before the contest Mona received a very small bunch of violets from Hilda, the first she had picked that spring. These violets, though they were already half wilted, Mona gave to Frank, who, with heart nearly overflowing with gratitude, carefully placed them in a tiny note-book which he hereafter carried in his vest pocket. On the night of the contest every seat in the College Auditorium was filled. Extra chairs had been brought in. ln back even the standing room was all taken by anxious enthusiasts and loyal friends of the orators and college. After a few preliminary remarks by the chairman, the invocation, and music by the College C-lee Club, the first orator was announced, and amid great applause ascended the platform to begin hostilities. Frank Hartell was the fifth speaker. Nervously he waited. The first, second and third orators did exceptionally well, surprising all. The fourth speaker seemed somewhat tired. That he had overworked could easily be seen. His delivery dragged, his enunciation was in- distinct. Meanwhile Frank got ready. Again and again he wiped the perspiration from his hands, pulled his tie tighter, and shuffled his feet. Three times he took from his white vest pocket a tiny note-book and looked tenderly at a few withered violets. With every look he clenched his hands in determination. Applause marked the close of the fourth speaker's oration. Frank's subject was announced and with steady tread he ascended 164 NORTHWESTERN SPECTFRQM the platform, paying little heed to the tremendous applause which greeted him on this his first appearance. Slowly and distinctly he began. At first he became frightened at hearing his own voice. Steadily he continued, reaching splendidly his first climax. Now he lowered his voice, again he raised it, working toward the second climax. l-le was now in the body of his oration. The successful reaching of his first two climaxes both of which took con- siderable 'energy, began to tell on him. It seemed to dawn upon him for the first time that he was addressing a large audience. I-le was giving an oration! The thought frightened him. What do these people care what he says? What business had he to talk to them? What if they'd all walk out! What if the platform would open like a trap door and let him fall through! Did he have a tie on? l-le had never noticed that one of the statues on the wall was nearly off its shelf. What a commotion if the chairman should drop dead! It would interrupt his oration-his oration, yes, what had he said last? What came next? For the life of him he could not remember and no one to prompt him! But stop he could not, go on he must. He extemporized a sentence, then another. What had they to do with his subject, thought he. Then he caught lVlona's eye. She looked pleased. Even the audience did not seem to notice his extempo. He was at sea. Gradually he felt himself sinking. 'Tm not lost till I quit!" he said to himself. Extemporize he must! Forgetting oratory, forgetting self, he swung his arm across his breast, his fist clenched resounding with a thud over his heart. Through his coat he could feel a tiny note-book. With renewed determination he raised his voice. "True blue as the violet, so is Love and Truth. It never fails. just as God helps the tiny flower grow up among the many grass blades, just as the sun warms its roots, strengthens its stem, kisses its petals, so God helps the failure in his struggle upward, helps him to be true, helps him to be firm, helps him to grow up with his colors Hying amidst the opposition of the successful." It seemed that the audience sat without breathing. Are they dead? Wake them he must! Perspiring, his eyes red, his whole body in nervous tension, Frank continued. His mind became clearer and clearer. I-le found his cue: he knew the rest and felt safe. All this which happened in thirty seconds, seemed a month to Frank. He con- tinued working hard and reached his last climax with telling effect. As he took his seat the applause was prolonged and loud. I-le hardly noticed it. l-le felt like walking out and going home-but why? Was not he to be a genius of failure that night? I-le took his seat and sat thinking, hardly listening to the other speakers. After the last ora- tion had been delivered, and the college orchestra had played "Behold, the Conquering Hero Comes," the students broke out in yells and songs. Twice while Frank was wiping his brow he heard his name whispered in connection with winning. "Sympathetic," thought he. "If only I made second, it may help me make the team." Applause an- nounced the bearer of the judges' decision. The chairman arose. All was still. "The judges have awarded second honors to the oration, 'John Brownf Will Mr. Mint kindly step forward?" Frank's heart sank. "Indeed a failure! They'll never take one below second for the team." Paul Mint, amid the yells of the senior class, walked to the platform and received second prize accompanied by Hattering remarks from the chairman. Again all was quiet. ' "First honors have been won by the oration, 'The Genius of Failure., H Frank nearly swooned. How he ever reached the platform he could never tell. The chairman said something, what, he does not know. A gold coin enclosed in an 165 NORTHWESTERN SFECTPEEM envelope was handed him. When he turned to leave the platform, Mona was right there, the first to grasp his hand. All his classmates had rushed to the platform and before his hand was released from lVlona's tight grasp, he was lifted upon their shoulders, and amid yells, songs, and applause that was almost deafening, was carried bodily from the room. On a winter's evening, nearly six years later, Frank I-lartell and Hilda Sadge l-'lartell sat cozily before the fireplace of their neat little cottage, watching the burning embers. Frank, representing his college, had won the inter-collegiate oratorical contest and another gold coin. Phil Dexter had entered professional baseball instead of return- ing to school, with the result that Dorax University was unanimously defeated in debate against their rivals. Frank stirred the fire and returned to the sofa. "l'lilda,,' he said, "to-morrow it will be one year since weire married, and lacking about five months from being six years since the oratorical contests.

With surprise and delight Hilda opened the little jewelry box he handed her, and took therefrom a gold band ring, on the inside of which was engraved a bunch of violets. "This ringf' said Frank as he placed it upon her finger, His made from the gold of the two coins." WW f' WS 6 5 X -lt sae.

J. MILLER, 'I0. The leap of years is come again, And glad are all the maids. For four of years have passed since then When they did make great raids. It,s up to us, they said that morn, To give the boys a time, Who should themselves as girls adorn And act in all sublime. Then o'er the 'phone the message went, The other six to show How well an evening could be spent With hopes and joys aglow. The time is set, the hour has come, And off to work they gog They bring each one into their home, And make no great adieu. When all on board, the hour was spent In social chats and pranks, And to the evening was lent Not any unfilled blanks. The boys who were the girls that night Did act a little shy, Until they got into the fight And made their aprons fly. The kitchen was a sorry sight, For all did want to work, They stood around and hid the light, Nor did they ever shirk. With buttered lingers and a plate They had to toe the mark, And rub and rub at such a gait As if to bring a spark. When all was pulled and eating done, The girls now turned to boys, The tafly done and butter gone, All joined in festive joys. 167 NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM QCONTINUEDJ The cackling hen and mimicry Brought notes of laughter loud. These sports with others totally Would bring a larger crowd. To Misses Boo and Belle be given The thanks of all our heartsg For they indeed have surely striven To lighten all our parts.

Old Father Time, on his hurrying rounds, Hears from afar sweet musical sounds. Himself a lover of music sweet, He wished to hear this musical treat. So toward its source he wended his way, But imagine how great was his sad dismay, When, the closer he came, less sweet it seemed, For, tho, the air with music teemed, Its nature was harsh and unpleasing to hear. What a mixture of sounds as ,came to his earl But anxious to know the reason thereof, He continued his way till directly above, What he thought was the source of this medley wild. But alas! he was angry and his temper rilecl, When he saw 'twas from Northwestern C, That came this confusion, whatever it be! This cannot be!" he did loudly cry, And descended that he might better espy. Twas with agony we must confess, si 9 That he came to this strange wilderness, Of sounds from piano, organ, and voice, And surely, ,twas hardly to his choice, For "ahs!', and "ahs!', and trills and scales, Violin scratchings, thumps and wails, And rumblings from organ, pianos and such, Was the welcome he got, which distressed him much. But attracted by an odor to nostrils sweet, He turned his steps its source to meet, But to his horror and awful disgust, It resulted in sauerlcraui, which the college club must, In deference to urepf' sweetly swallow, Tho' it chokes them, and be their greatest foe. An awful hubbub now greeted his ear, And led by a great, unreasoning fear That something was wrong, or someone hurt, He hurried toward it for battle girt, But, all in vain, for instead of scene, He found but our girls of beautiful mien Holding gab-fests galore in the dressing room. 169 is NORTHWESTERN SPECT RUM Q19 YB CVB fb fb 475' ,fi IQ' X2 X I Of tradelasts they spoke, and all such lore, Telling what "he" said, and what she wore, Speaking of lessons as an awful bore. But high shouts of laughter disturbed his peace And determined to stop it, with an eye of doom, He went to find it, and lo! 'twas the reading-room. Where tables in favor of chairs were used, While magazines, papers lay unabused, While the young men gossipped of dates and stings, And praises of "her" each loudly sings. lVlethought,,' he cried, "that this good place, For reading was intended, not gossip basef' But he noticed a gap in their thinning ranks, Where before were humorous husky hanks, Ahaln he cried, HI have it at last, They, to their beds, with mumps are held fast, But from temptation they're at least immune, For blowouts will now become popular soon, And on moonlight nights with no work to do, Each girl will be compelled with-probably two, Stalwart admirers of courage bold, Prepared to meet the displeasure cold Of our mighty faculty, so stern and severe, And ready to pay the penalty dear, For the fears of punishment are nought in compare With the joys of "twosing," to those who dare. But what is this?" he sharply cried, And up the stairs he did boldly stride, From whence came wailings of grief and despair, Gnashing of teeth, and pulling of hair. And lo! 'twas our office of wide repute, Where they skin you, while you can but stand mute, Pay 25 cents for paper worth ten, And 50 cents for a 5-cent pen. Here weeping and wailing were students poor, Who from their plows school-life did lure. Little did they dream of the great Hconi'-game To be practiced on them as soon as they came. But what are these whisperings harsh and shrill?', And very much against his will, Did Father Time to third floor climb, Where he found our Clio so very sublime. But what are these noises, low yet shrill, While the speaker goes up, with time at his will? 170 ff -- -f -1 ,QQQMQSQQMM NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM Methinks the audience rude and untaught, To whisper and chatter, caring nought, That he has wondrous efforts made For their entertainment-tho' not well paidf, Then thinking to leave this place so wild, , For he was disgusted, and his temper-not mild! He groped about from place to place, And finding a door, with great relief, I-le threw it open but lo! fbeyond belief, A co-ed sweet of genius rare, Who for nothing but music did ever care, Was practising diligently with the thought supreme "Of putting her heartn in her work, and her face did beam When she gazed at "him," an inspiration rare, Who with the horrors of practising would gladly bear, To be near his afhnity, both at work and at "play," Haunting her steps, go where she may. "Oh, woe is me!" he cried in grief, "Tho, sad to relate, 'tis my belief, That in this school of wide renown, Tho' the standard of learning goes up, not down, The discipline lax and loose will become. If stern measures are not taken and something done. But, hold! Methinks l have heard of late Of rumors of a Dean, whom kind fate, Has sent, this school to moderate: That he most wond'rous changes will make, Tho' difficult, for his Alma lVlater's sake." So hail to our Dean so stern yet kind, And hail to our faculty, whose like we'll ne'er find, And may our Northwestern forever be The center of our love and loyalty! 171 ' 'W . 5 5 I-Pg I If -ia " .

The Renaissance had begun in the great Italian cities. The old forces were being supplanted by the new. The intellectual, political and moral life of all Europe was fast being transformed by a new activity. Interest in art and literature was at its height. The I-Iumanists, reveling in Grecian Philosophy, were fast re-establishing pagan ideals. This awakening of thought was accompanied by a loosening of restraint and an indulgence in luxury and sensuality. Italian society, artistic, literary, and refined, was corrupted with unbridled lust, treason, and violence. The Roman Church had forgotten her mission. Drunk with prestige and power she had bartered her God for gold. I-Ier priests fattened on the superstitious of the people. I-ier monks sold indulgences for sin. I-Ier monasteries were filled with gluttons and sensualists. Even the sacred offices of Cardinal and Pope were bought and sold. The awful avarice of Paul II. was followed by the scandalous lust of Sixtus IV. and the sensuality of Innocent VIII. The city of Florence had become the center of art and learning. The court of Lorenzo was graced by the greatest artists, sculptors, philosophers and poets of the age. Yet corruption and dissipation ravaged the people. Beauty charmed the eye but passion ruled the heart. Dazzled by the splendor of Lorenzo, Florence had become the most beautiful, yet the most licentious city of Italy. She had forgotten her liberty and her God and accepted tyranny and the glitter of gold. Could all this corruption in State and Church go on unchallenged? Was there no righteous man to raise a warning voice, no prophet to predict the coming doom? Behold! In the pulpit of San Marco stands a tall, slender, sinewy man. Beneath his cowl gleam a dark, passionate face and piercing eyes. Every gesture betokens sin- cerity, and with a voice firm and unfaltering he proclaims: "There is no fear of God in those who should maintain it. The chastity of the Church is slain and they who should serve God with holy zeal have become cold and luke-warm. O ye rich, give alms! O ye poor, be upright and despair notlv The voice of one crying in the wilder- ness says: NO Italy, the time is come for the punishment of your sins!" Savonarola was born and educated amid courtly circles and designed for a medical career. In early childhood he nurtured an abhorrence for the prevalent vices and frivoli- ties of court life. Often had his heart been saddened when between the strains of music in the palace he had heard 'fthe clanking of the chainsu and the "groans of the human beingsn in the dungeon beneath. As he grew older his hatred for sin and wickedness became more intense. Despairing of his country's salvation and sickened by its frivoli- ties, he turned for comfort to his God. His constant impulse was to seek shelter in the Church and in 1475 he entered the monastery of Bologna In 1481 he was sent to Florence As he entered San Marco his soul was filled with delight The smiling land scape and soft lines of Tuscan hills greeted his eyes while the beauty and elegance of Tuscan speech fell like sweet music upon his ear I-Ie was charmed with the culture and learning of the monks while the beauty of Fra Angelica s art filled his soul with 184 E L-L.. .

But as he looked out upon the vices of Italy his soul yearned to cry out to that erring people: "Repent ye and turn to your Ctodfi Savonarola's first opportunity came at the meeting of the Chapter-General at Reggio. There he denounced the corruption of the Church and won the admiration of all. Now that he was convinced of his new mission, his lectures became so impassioned that not only the monks but the leading citizens of Florence gathered around his class of novices. The throng of listeners increased until on May l, l49O, he entered the pulpit of St. Mark's. That day he began an unequal conflict in which at last he fell a victim. Denouncing pagan philosophy and false ideals, censuring the corruption and vices in State and Church, he boldly declared that the Church must be regenerated and that Italy would be punished. His continued attack upon the evils and corruption in private and public life aroused intense interest among the people. Lorenzo, fearing that this might undermine his power and popularity, attempted to gain the favor of Savonarola by giving large sums to the convent, but still that voice rang out its prophetic note against tyranny and vice. The following year Lorenzo died and was succeeded by his son Piero, a man with all the pride, the ambition, and the vices of his father. Unwilling to give Florence the appearance of self-government he ruled as a despotic prince. The death of the Pope soon followed and the election of Alexander VI. filled the far-seeing mind of Savonarola with dark and gloomy forebodings. At this critical period in the affairs of Florence, he was elected Prior of San Marco and in this enlarged sphere of power he devoted his energies toward the reformation of his monastery, of the Florentine State and of the Church. Stronger and stronger grew his denunciation: stronger his prophesies of approach- ing doom. Around his pulpit gathered the dissatisfied throngs of Florence. At the court there was no thought of dangerg all was peace and gayety. But suddenly word came that Charles VIH. of France had crossed the Alps, taken Naples, and was marching toward Florence. Without resistance, Piero delivered the unfortunate city into the hands of her enemy. The fulfillment had come. All Florence, rising in fury, turned to Savonarola for help. His pulpit became the helm, he the pilot. There he subdued that intense excitement and dictated the affairs of State. Wlihy crimes, O Florence!" that voice rang out, "thy crimes, O Rome! thy crimes, O Italy! are the causes of these chastisementsf' Swayed by his power, the people turned to God. Piero was expelled and Savonarola was sent to negotiate with Charles VIH. So wise was his diplomacy, and so powerful his prophetic influence upon the king that he gained freedom for Flor- ence. His policies became the foundation principles of the new state. I-le was at the height of his power. His voice ruled the State. Florence heeded his counsel and be- came a city of God. The licentious carnivals of Lorenzois time were replaced by pro- cessions of white-robed children singing hymns and chanting psalms. Now his success aroused the bitterest antagonism of his enemies. Tempting induce- ments were advanced to draw him from his courseg but they made Savonarola only more determined. As a last resort the alarmed Pope offered him the archbishopric of Flor- ence and the Cardinal's hat for silence. And did he accept? Hear his answer: "The only red hat I shall ever wear will be that of my martyrdom, stained with my own bloodf' Baflled in his efforts to bribe, the enraged Pope forbade him to preach, then excom- municated him and placed him under the ban. Meanwhile his enemies had gained control of the Florentine Council, and the doom of Savonarola was sealed. He was challenged to prove the truth of his doctrine by passing unharmed through fire. The fickle people, disappointed that he did not accept the challenge, forsook him in the crucial hour. An angry mob attacked the convent .7 ' 18' 4 NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM and the next day Savonarola and two of his companions were taken before the hostile Council. To judge them guilty was the ardent desire of the Council and Pope. False witnesses and false records were produced. During the trial the most inhuman tortures were inflicted upon them, and finally the predetermined sentence of death as heretics and despisers of the Holy See was pronounced upon them. ' The morning of the execution has arrived. The radiant sun rises over a turbulent city. The public square is thronged with an excited crowd. What strange emotions throb within those heaving breasts! There mingle together his bitterest enemies, his dear- est friends, those who chafed under his restrictions and those inspired by his preaching. An ominous silence spreads over that swaying crowd as Savonarola and his two com- panions are lead forth. The scaffold is ready, above stands the gibbet in the shape of a cross, beneath are piled the fagots ready to be kindled. Close above the platform crowds the rabble, jostling, jesting, sneering, cursing. To-day comes their revenge. That voice once so powerful against them, is soon to be stilled forever. At the foot of the scaffold, Savonarola administers the eucharist to himself and his two friends. They kneel in prayer: and then, serene in their faith in God, they mount the scaffold with steady step, yield their necks to the halter, and their bodies hang lifeless from the cross. Oh, ye men of Florence! Ye have slain your prophet! No longer will his voice call you to repentance. No longer will he champion the cause of your liberty. The day of your opportunity is past. The torch is applied to the pile and amid the liendish glee of his enemies and the prayers and sobs of his friends, the body of Savonarola is consumed by the flames. Thus ended the life of the greatest man Florence ever called her own. As an individual he perished-perished for the cause of liberty and righteousness. But the fire intended to destroy him and his works, became a beacon light unto future generations. As in the darkness before the dawn, the morning star heralds the coming sun, so Savon- arola was the first faint light to herald the greater lights of the coming Reformation. l-le was not a dogmatic reformer, but a man in whose soul burned a conviction of truth. l-le sought to draw men nearer to God, to cleanse the Church, Hto conciliate reason with faith, religion with libertyf, He gave men like Luther, Calvin and Zwingli, final proof that the Church could not be reformed without a change of doctrine. I-le was one of those men who, by their martyrdom, paved the way for the grander achieve- ments of succeeding generations. Savonarola foresaw the progress of civilization, and pointed men to a higher, nobler and truer ideal. As long as humanity feels the anguish of sin, as long as the human heart throbs in response to the pure, as long as the human mind soars upward toward the divine, so long will the world owe him admiration. l-lis was "the prophet's mind, the hero's heart, the martyrls fate." ,ll ISI.

Brown University was an institution of clever learning. Its ideals were high and its standards exceptional. 'Tis true the enrollment was but several hundred and the greater part boys, but ,twas nevertheless a co-ed institution of wide reputation. History shared her part in bringing it to her present position, true morals had placed her in high favor with competitive schools, while aggressiveness was ever her slogan. Entering her very halls one felt a reverence. Over the door of the Presidentis room was seen, in bold type, the Latin inscription, "Auf vincere aut morif, This was a subject of no little discussion on the part of every new student. Turning to the older students they inquired the meaning of it and the Sophs were always ready to trip an innocent Freshman. Cn the 24th of September a new man by the name of Elmer Davis introduced him- self as a Freshman. Seeing the motto, he asked the first man he saw what it meant. "That mottof' answered Joe Pelty, "is a declaration laid down by the Sophs to the Freshmen for the ensuing year. It is written in Latin to make a firm impression upon your mind. By it we mean, 'Either nine months misery or sudden death., It is hard to give a free translation, for as you will learn, 'vincerei means 'to conquer' and 'mori, means 'to dief But with this explanation you may hand your decision to the Sophs by the lst of October. i ' "Have you your life insured?" continued Pelty. "No, I ain,t,', answered young Davis, nearly scared stiff. "Then," said Pelty, "go in and have the President write a policy at once, so if anything happens your folks will get enough to pay your doctor bills, etc." fcontinuedy walter sf.

Days passed, and as the new professor met his classes they were pleased with his clever ways of handling subjects.

Week after week passed and the new man gradually attained success. l-le over- came many of his earlier hindrances and had complete control of subject and order hy the first of the winter term. ln sociology and astronomy he won special laurels. l-le was quite a student of social conditions, while star-gazing was his chief delight in youth. 197 NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM Eyes Tested Free Money on Good Security N.

What could be more aggravating than that a student should stay in his room on such beautiful evenings. The Seniors in particular had but a few days to spend in their college career and naturally they took every advan- tage of the fine weather. One Monday evening, the moon shining so clear and bright, several co-eds decided to stroll for a few hours. Strange it was that they should hang together, but such was their inclination. Passing the l3resident's home, they gave their On they went, enjoying every breath of the delightful low-toned yells and serenades. air. Finally they stopped at a house where several of the student girls roomed, and three rousing yells were given in succession. Soon the upstairs windows were opened and the co-eds were asked to go up. Merrily and lively they rushed up the stairs to spend a few moments with Bill Gates and Laura Snagelson. The room was crowded and a great time ensued. All at once they were disturbed by a knock at the door and who should it be but the President, who was visiting Mr. Williams down stairs. Such a stricken crowd was never heard of and it was in short order that the Mr. X's took their various Miss Yis and were sent home under a heavy oath. Too bad indeed to be thus caught, but yet the President could not be accused of intruding. It was a sad failure for the first night, but they were not willing to give up at that. Next morning quite a little talk was heard regarding the activities of the night previous. The faculty was put next to the affairs and Professor Harris had new duties to perform. For a number of days the weather was rainy and nothing more was said. l-lowever, the warmth had returned by the first of April. The students had planned for a great April Fool, with Professor Harris as victim. The morning was fair and when the College bell rang for his 8:30 class, he hurried into the recitation room.

The class noticed it, but thinking it a joke, left it undisturbed. When the professor took his usual place of instruction he noticed the box so neatly done up. Instead of opening it, he threw it with disgust into the waste box and a general smile stole over the faces of the students when he told them he was on his guard for any more "April foolsf' I-Ie opened the text book and proceeded with the recitation. No one knew a thing about the lesson. Calling upon one after another, he became not a little provoked. I-le asked the class what the matter was and an answer came from the rear, "Out too late last nightf' 'iOh, yes! Out too late! I seelu said the professor. Well, things must come differentf' Such work could not continue, and to avoid further violation of right doing, complaint was made to the President. As the bell toiled at 9:30, every student clamored for his position for the daily exercises. After the hymn, HA Charge to Keep I I-lavef' the President gave a pro- longed talk, ending ten minutes over time. So emphatically were the facts shown and so clear was the evidence, that the fifteen judges seated to the right gave unanimous support. Several professors were assigned beats and were to report all misconduct. Professor Harris no sooner returned to his I0 o'clock class than he found written on the board: "This class met, stayed I0 minutes, and adjourned." It seemed strange indeed that students of true motives and sincere views should be so unfair to the earnest efforts of their professor, yet it seemed he had not won his stand-in. I-Ie went to his room, wondering why life was so trying and whether he were really pursuing his true calling. I-Ie thot he would wear off his gloom when dinner was ready.

Sitting down, he tried to rid himself of his serious thots. But all was wrongg he spilled his coffee, the meat didnft taste right, and it was worse than ever. Then his thots were turned to the constant discontent while staying there. The room was not kept and ventilated according to the new discoveries in hygiene, the food was far from the re- quirements of Fletcherology, he found fault with everything and wondered where he might get a Hdecentf' place to stay. I-Ie left the table and went up-stairs. Entering his room, his eyes fell on his favorite verse: "Tho sad thy ways appear, And dark the clouds may be: In loneliness and discontent, Don't forget your Sweet Marie." Looking at the opposite wall he saw her picture fair, and over on the sofa his eyes beheld the old hard-earned monogram won at the I-Iarvard-Yale football game but a few years ago. I-Iis reflected thots brought in a wave of sunlight, his heart brightened and he sat in sweet meditation until his Z o,cIock class. The gong sounded and the professor left his room with better thots and higher ideas. It was a bad Friday, but his merry thots cured him like a medicine. I-Ie met his class with a full preparation and a full heart. It was quite different than in the morning. All his questions were answered clearly and definitely. It was something unusual and upon complimenting the students at the close of the hour, they said it was simply an April Fool. But such was the kind he liked and thanked them for the splendid work.

A note lay to the left of the table saying the class had other 1m portant business at that hour and had sent their proxies.

Moment by moment the Walks were more thickly populated two by two, side by each. 206 NoRTHWISSTeRN SPECTRUM W The plot was not yet fully effected. Joe Pelty, together with two of his class- mates, wrote a fake note and hired a young lad to deliver it to Professor Harris. Away the lad ran with the note and stepping up to the door, rang the bell emphatically. The mistress opened and taking the note, read, "For Professor Harrisf, She hastened up- stairs and delivered the missive.

The way was long, but he realized "Duty done was the soul,s firesidef' Onward he walked composing some suitable words with which to arrest their attention. Here and there he saw two by two darting into various directions. Cn farther he heard a voice crying, "Run! Runli' He stopped for a moment and he could hear the echo of the number l0's of some frantic student kicking the tin cans right and left as he made his escape down the alley. His entire journey was a succession of similar events. It was then I0:3O and too late indeed for such stunts. As he neared the home of Mr. Rose, he heard quite a little foolish talk and laughter. He became scared, but it was his duty to go on. He drew closer and closer. But a short distance away he could see two young people seated on a large rock. He took a long breath, grasped a new grip on courage and stepped manfully onward. The light of the moon enabled him to recognize the gray suit of the gentleman and the white dress of the lady. At times he could hardly tell whether there was one or two. On he went step by step, but was stunned to see no move on their part. He was in a dilemma and debated the question of going farther. Finally he nerved up and rushing toward them grabbed the young man by the shoulders, only to find he was arresting another dummy, but it was the climax of the day's hostilities. 207 NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM I-IAIVIIVIERSIVIITI-I Engraving Company Illustrators and Printers of -1 HIGH-GRADE 1 Qin n u a I 5 Qtatalnques Qialenhars Bulletins v-Ef7,g,? x ,-f af, f ir I Iaiav-N Q M 4 ry, ' fy om " Og SEND IN YOUR SPECIFICATIONS AND GET OUR SPECIAL COLLEGE ANNUAL PROPOSITION 116 Michigan St., Mitlwaukee, Wis.
