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
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.

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
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
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.
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!

BISHOP THOMAS BOWMAN, D. D
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!

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
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
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.

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!

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
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
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.

The German Department.
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.

RAPID STRIDES IN ART
Smith llnstructorb ,
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.

The School of Commerce.
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.

gg NORTHWESTERN SPECTRUM
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.

CLIOSOPI-IIC LITERARY SOCIETY.
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.

Morro: GSTHEY WIN WHO TRY."
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.

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

PHILORHETORIAN LITERARY SOCIETY.
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.

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
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

The Bible Study Department of the Y. M. C. 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
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.

Promoted as they are by men and women of 7
unsellish zeal and devotion, the missionary activities
at Northwestern College are by no means the least Ciii1ASM,,,g
important. 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-
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

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
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
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

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,
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.

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-
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.

The Labor Bureau is an active department of the Young lVlen's Christian Associa-
tion. 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.
The Student Volunteer Band, organized in l892, is one of the important organi-
zations of the College. 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.

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.
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.

Oratory and Debate.
The Oratorical and Debating Associations have been organized for the develop-
ment Of the art of public speaking. 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
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-

THE UHEATHERTON' PRIZES.
Judge John S. 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

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
The Club is in a prosperous condition and we bespeak for it every success.

The College Chronicle is the principal college publication. 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.

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.
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

"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.

ATHLETIC BOARD OF CONTROL.
H. A. KELLERMAN, Manager.
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. COLIN HIGGINS, captain'

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.

W- L- ZABEL, Manager. CARL GAMERTSFELDER, Champion.
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-

The F reshmen-Sophomore Football Games.
FROM A FRESHMAN'S STANDPOINT.
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
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.

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

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

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,

Frank Hartell-A Genius of Failure.
PRIZE STORY-WM. E. GROTE, 'I3.
Frank Hartell was a Junior in College. 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-
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
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
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
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
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. You were my
inspiration, though you knew it not. In commemoration of that inspiration and the result,
I give you this on the eve of our first anniversary."
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."

In Remembrance of February 8 1908
E. 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.
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.
To father, mother, one and all,
With joy our hearts are stirredg
With thanks bestowed as we recall
That night of February Third.

Father Time's Round.
EDNA GEISTER, 'I 3.
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,
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.

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?

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!

ORATION WINNING GOOD PRIZE, I9l0.
C. I. ROLLER, 'IO.
The close of the l5th century witnessed the dawn of a new civilization. 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

rapture. 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
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
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."

The Senior's Farewell.
Ror BENTON LEEDY, 'l0.
They come, they go, last days, last hoursg
I-low swift they come and gog
They vanish as the summer flowers,
With all their charm and glow:
And thus we face,
Bound to embrace,
The last of College days.
We linger at the threshold now,
Of our dear college homeg
And wait to give a parting bow,
Her honor to enthrone:
Our college clays are o'er.
Sing out, sing out, in cheerful song,
Our Alma lVlater's praiseg
Fond class of '10, for 'tis not long,
The end of college days:
The cardinal and white.
'ICI 'lO! Adieu!
The portals close, college no more:
We turn to face the world:
The drawbridge swings and we go o'er
Life's banners all unfurled.
Our parting song
ls praise, for all thy aid.

GEORGE C. PULLMAN, 'l2.
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

the program was great, and that was the effective talk of the new Professor l-larris. l-le
stated his gratitude to the President and assured the students the most faithful attention.
l-le won a position on the "Grand Facultyii and a corner in the heart of every student.
Days passed, and as the new professor met his classes they were pleased with his
clever ways of handling subjects. But before a month had passed the students realized
that Professor Harris had little experience as instructor and were ready to have a time at
will. 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.

Cn toward the middle of March the weather man sent forth the warm breezes, the
cheerful robins and the buds on the trees. 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 plot was well

arranged by the class, but one of their number, being over-conscientious, wrote out the
entire plot and carefully placing it in a box, put it on the table. 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

'iOh, yes! Out too late! I seelu said the professor. Well, things must come

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.

fully poured the coffee, the call was given and Professor came down-stairs ready for some
relief. 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.
Better still was his life after leaving a class with such success and he later returned in a

mies in the chairs. 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. That was the best joke yet,
and Professor Harris took it all with a hearty laugh. The dummies kept strict order,
tended to their own business but refused to recite. I-le then spent the remaining time in
the library, reading April Fool stories.

It was nearly time for luncheon, and the professor had important duties to perform
in caring for his beat that night. After supper he took his cane and carefully surveyed
the situation. The evening was typical and the thot of Watching strollers reminded him
of his earlier days. Returning to his room he sat quietly by his window reading "Maud

8:30 and the moon and stars were smiling upon the fair co-eds that dotted the Walks
here and there. Songs of College life, Rah! Rahsl and the like were sent thru the gentle
breezes. No rules seemed to affect their nocturnal perambulations, they were all for-
gotten on April Fool. Moment by moment the Walks were more thickly populated two
by two, side by each.

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. Carefully unfolding it, the professor read:

S'Well! Welllii exclaimed the worried master of philosophy but not of Co-Eds,
"4-23 Delaware Avenue, why thatis nearly a mile out, but when a notice comes like
that there is 'surely something wrong.', He hastily put on his coat, grabbed his hat and
started on his beat. 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.
