S. GAMERTSFELDER, A.M., PH.D., PRESIDENT
For thirty-six years the Evangelical Theological Seminary has been pressing
steadily onward in its effort to prepare young men for the Gospel ministry. No
attempt has been made to modify the cardinal doctrines of our holy religion.
We emphasize still today as our fathers did, our unshaken faith in one Supreme
Being, a personal living God, revealed in this dispensation as Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit. We hold that theology is the science of the living God and of His
work in and for a living world. As the living world is steadily advancing, theology
must be progressive. So while we hold tenaciously to the established doctrines
of the Christian religion, we yet welcome all the light of science, reason, philosophy
and Christian experience to adapt our theology to the need of our age.
For several years we realized the great need of a separate building as a home
for our Theological Seminary. Our Bishops frequently referred to this need in
their episcopal messages to the General Conferences. The Seminary Board of
Trustees also keenly felt the need of a new Seminary building. The only barrier
that seemed to lay in the way hindering the undertaking to build wasthe lack of
finances. But this was not a real barrier, as the achievements of the past year
have fully demonstrated.
The plans for raising the funds for a new building which was finally adopted
was formulated by S. Gamertsfelder and presented to the General Conference
in IQI 1. By a unanimous vote the General Conference adopted this plan and made
all necessary provision for its realization. The Seminary Board of Trustees meeting
Nov. 2, 1911, following the suggestion of the 25th General Conference, proceeded
at once to make all necessary arrangements to erect a Seminary building. The
plan put forth by the General Conference provides for the observance of a Semi-
nary Day on the second Sunday of September of each year in the quadrennium.
The object of this day is to incite young men to consecrate themselves to the
Christian ministry and to raise funds for the Seminary. In one year about thirty
thousand dollars were secured in cash and pledges for this purpose. Dr. G. Hein-
miller, editor of the Christliche Botschafter, in his official capacity and by his
personal influence, has rendered very valuable service in achieving this highly
May the 22nd, 1912, the Seminary Board of Trustees decided by unanimous
vote to begin at once the erection of the building. A building committee of five,
with Dr. S. L. Umbach as chairman, was appointed and instructed to let the con-
tract and carry out the plan for the building which had been accepted. On a
beautiful site ISOXISO feet, adjoining the College Campus on the north, the new
Seminary was built. On February 13, 1913, it was dedicated by most impressive
services to the sacred purpose for which it was erected.
The building consists of three large recitation halls, easily accommodating from
30 to 40 students each, a large and well lighted room for a library, and a beautiful
chapel with a seating capacity for 110 persons. So far as physical comfort is con-
cerned, nothing more favorable for study can be desired. Our Theological Semi-
nary is an honor to the Church which responded so heartily in its building, and it
will stand as a monument to future generations of our thought of the need of a
Theological training for the Gospel ministry.

lt is encouraging to reflect that every time a need of North-Western College
becomes really pressing, that need is met, ofttimes from unexpected sources. For
years a permanent athletic field has been felt to be a necessity. True, we had a
rented field north of the city. However, not only was this field quite distant from
the campus, but it also transpired last fall, that this field was divided into lots and
these lots placed on the market, so that it would no longer have been available
as an athletic field.
In the meantime a campaign of agitation for such a field was being waged.
Previous to our semi-centennial celebration it was the hope that a new athletic
field could be announced as the gift of the citizens of Naperville. But this hope
proved illusory, mainly because the proposed location of the field did not arouse
enthusiasm. At our last Booster Day our attention was called to the plot of ground
just south of the depot. Immediately steps were taken to secure this field, if pos-
sible. lt was the property of the Chicago,,Burlington Sc Quincy Railroad. Judge
John S. Goodwin, who was appealed to for co-operation, became keenly interested
in the enterprise and with President Seager took up the matter with the authorities
of the C. B. St Q. Ry. Company. So successful were these interviews, that it was
possible to announce very soon, that the Company had donated the plot of ground
to the College. A canvass of the students and citizens of Naperville was begun
for funds to fit up the grounds as an athletic field, and two thousand dollars un-
doubtedly will be secured.

Qllummentement week uf 1912
ALICE B. MEIER, ,I4
What is so rare as a day in June, the month in which nature is at her best of
full blown beauty! Surely at no better time could an institution present to the
world its production of mental development and bloom. Commencement week of
1912 proved that another year of hard work with its trials and joys had come to
a happy ending. It was then that every department showed what had been
accomplished and indeed our Alma Mater could be happy in the results.
The Commercial graduating exercises were the first beginning of the end.
Hon. S. E. Knecht, '86, delivered the address to the graduating class.
The regular commencement exercises of the college were begun on the morning
of Sunday, june 16th, by the Baccalaureate services. The twenty-nine seniors
in their sombre, scholarly robes gave dignity and solemnity to the occasion as they
entered the spacious new church to the strains of the pipe organ. The baccalaureate
sermon by President Seager on the subject "What Is Thy Life" impressed every
listener with that feeling of responsibility for a life.
On the evening of the same day the Academy graduates had a Baccalaureate
sermon, given by their Principal, Prof. Thos. Finkbeiner.
Orpheus of old might well have been present in the College Chapel Monday
evening, june 17, as the successful work of the School of Music showed itself in
the selections rendered by the five graduates four in piano and one in pipe organ.
Tuesday evening, june 18, was reserved for the graduating exercises of the
Academy. The first part of the program displayed the musical, literary and ora-
torical ability of the class, the second part the dramatic, by the rendition of Shakes-
peare's "Much Ado About Nothing."
By Wednesday of this week the observer could well tell the College Seniors were
in prominence as they came and went in their Howing black proudly displaying
the scenes of their college days to their visiting friends and relatives. It was on
the morning of june 19th that the Seniors commenced to make themselves heard
and they kept it up with praise-worthy success for an entire day. In the morning
there was given in College Chapel a program of spiced variety displaying talent in
vocal, piano, violin, elocution and oratory. In the afternoon the class broke away
from chain-fettered custom of past years and delighted their interesting friends
with a light, short entertainment. The program was to have been given on the
campus but rain interfered. Later in the afternoon the weather relented and the
audience adjourned to the front of the Library building where the Ivy Oration was
given, the Ivy Song sung by the Senior Male Quartette, and the tender vine planted.
During the supper hour the four college classes gathered in groups with their friends
on the campus and supped together. All was peace and quiet at the vesper hour
even the Sophomores doing nothing worse than depriving the Freshmen of their
chairs. The time until the Commencement Concert was spent in a songfest con-
sisting of Glee Clubs and classes taking turns with songs and yells.
The morning of june 2oth proved to be a fitting close to the commencement of
1912. Again the new church was a scene of solemnity and dignity. The speaker
of the morning was Bishop McDowell of the Methodist Episcopal church, who spoke
on the subject, "The Modern Scholar." With his keen humor, striking figures,
eloquence and deep thought, the audience soon acknowledged the presence of a
The end of all was the Alumni Banquet held at six olclock of the same day in
Goldspohn Hall at which one hundred and fifty guests were happy to meet.
This ended another Commencement week made possible by the class of 1912.

A college, like all other institutions, is known and judged by its product. The
student is her best advertising agency and with his effort and influence rises or falls
the future of the school he represents. If he is a booster she moves forward, if not,
her progress is retarded. This is a fact that is gaining greater recognition every-
where and possibly nowhere to a greater degree than here, and as a result of this
fact North-Western annually celebrates her College, or as it is more commonly
called "Booster" day, the purpose of which is to instill a firey enthusiasm and im-
press everyone with the spirit of boosting, especially for the vacation period.
In keeping with this, on May 24, all classes were suspended and Faculty and
students spent the day at Naperville Park. The forenoon was given over to the
literary program of the day. President Seager acted as chairman and also spoke
as the representative of the Faculty, setting forth the possibilities of an increased
attendance as dependent upon the activity of the students as boosters. H. H.
Rasweiler, '68, President of the Alumni Association, followed with a very enthusi-
astic address in which he clearly set forth the spirit of the alumni and some of their
plans for the future. R. W. Feik, 713, president of the student body, voiced the
sentiments of the students, setting forth the reasons why everyone should endeavor
to help reach the N600 students" mark. Esther Lang, '13, spoke very optimistically
of the larger sphere of usefulness and more abundant pleasure in life that awaits
the college woman. Music was furnished by the Ladies' Glee Club and a male
quartet. At the close of the program President Seager presented to Mr. H.
Kolb, 312, as president of the Wisconsin students, the booster banner, that state
having secured the largest percentage of increased attendance.

When the cloudlets cry So come, my love
In the April sky, Don't look above
Then the violets are a-nodding Where the April skies are frownmg
In a dreamy way We'll take a peep
Where the brooklets spray Where the violets sleep
Their banks with the freshet's foaming. Safe hid in the sheltering grasses
Then no use talking, Let the cloudlets cry
You must go walking, In the April sky
just to hunt the violets blue What matter when violets blue
That are nodding and dreaming of you. Are waking and calling for you
Weill pick a few
Of these violets blue
just to carry their fragrance with us
Just to watch the light
In the eyes so bright
That laugh tho, the rain is falling.
In the azure fold
There's a heart of gold.
In the violetis eyes so blue
A welcome is waiting for you.
We'll pick a few
Of these violets blue
To carry their fragrance with us.
For the time to woo
Is when love is new,
Yet the dream must have an ending.
But the violet blue
Will still be true
When the heart that wooed is jaded
And the eyes of blue have faded.
When the cloudlets cry
In the April sky
Of some other year in the future,
It may be you
Will still be true
To the one who walks beside you.
And the fragrance sweet
Of a love complete
Recalls the violets blue
We picked when our love was new.

There's a vacant spot in each human heart,
Left there by the Master's wish,
Which if rightly joined to another heart,
Makes us kind, loving and unselfish.
This Vacant spot is for those we meet,
In our homes or on the street,
To give them welcome to this retreat,
Makes life worth living, our hearts complete.
The Qilnseh Bum'
One night I came to the home of a friend,
A small but neat little hut,
Tho, I'd traveled far the night to spend,
The lights were out and the door was shut.
Some time I will call at that home above,
And will seek to enter, but
Will I gain admittance to that place of love,
Or will the lights be out and the door be shut?
I love to think of you, dear,
It cheers my weary hours,
To the desert of my lonely life
You're an oasis of flowers.
My life is often sad, dear,
And you're so far away,
You know not that my heart aches,
Altho' I may seem gay.
The day I hope to meet you, dear,
May the birds their sweetest sing,
May nature don her richest gown,
When to thee my heart I bring.

There are some who innately see all the beauties in nature, feel them ard delight
thereing while others must cultivate and develop a love fcr the beautiful. An
education Without the development ofthe art element lacks a desired savor. North-
Western with her many advantages oifers a good course in this line of Work to those
who care to take it up. The department is in charge of one who has been in-
structed in the leading and best institutions of this country. The Work consists
of such as will prepare the students for teaching, further pursuit of these studies
for an artistic career, or just for self-enjoyment. The ccurses are arranged for
students having other studies in the college as Well as for those able to devote all
their time to this Work.
North-Western has an advantage over other schools of its size in that it has
the Art Institution of Chicago so near at hand. The students can visit the insti-
tution in order to get a Wider scope and greater insight into the realms of art by
seeing here the World's productions displayed.
The instruction of the department is based upon the methods employed in the
best Art Schools. The Work begins with drawing from the Hat in charcoal, crayon
and pencilg proceeding to drawing from still life, the antique and the living rnodelg
and painting in oil and Water color.

Of all the societies, institutions, and organizations in connection with out col-
lege the Young Men's Christian Association is one of the most, if not the most,
cosmopolitan. Here is the one place where the men of the school meet on a common
level for a common purpose-the development of strong Christian characters.
The Young Men's Christian Association of North-Western College is the second
oldest organization of its kind in the State. It was organized in the month of March
1872, by Mr. Robert Waidensall, first Secretary of the International Committee.
The Y. NI. C. A. aims not only to enlist every man in the school as an active
member of the Association, but also to guard, train and develop each for real ser-
vice. Our association stands for clean and moral living in both public and private
life. It stands for the four-fold development of man, for the enhancing of the truest
self. And this we believe can best be accomplished as one links himself with the
peerless Man of Galilee. Now in order to systematically and adequately carry
out the purpose of the association and maintain its standards, the work is divided
among different committees.
There are nine distinct standing committees in connection with the Y. M. C. A.
of which brief mention will be made. A Religious Meetings Committee supervises
the various meetings as devotional, educational, evangelistic, life-work, and other
special meetings. A special evangelistic effort is put forth each year at which time
men are led to an uncompromising decision for Jesus Christ.
The Committees on lVIissions and Bible Study each offer courses in their re-
spective departments. A large per cent of the men are enrolled in these classes
and effective work is accomplished. It is the purpose to have the Bible Study
Classes continue throughout the greater part of the year, and this department
places special emphasis on daily devotional study. The study of Missions continues
for only a portion of the school year.
The Social Committee of our Association aims to augment the social forces of
our College In the opening days of the school year every train is met by some
member of the committee, all new students welcomed, their trunks delivered to
their rooms, and whatever assistance can be rendered to make the new students
feel welcome is given them.
The Committee on Finance and Membership attends to the matter of securing
new members and handling the moneys of the Association. Through the persistent
efforts of this committee, the membership has grown each year until it reached its
maximum this year in the number of 250.
The Deputation Committee is instrumental each year in supplying the vacant
pulpits in proximity of our College. Gospel teams also are sent out for evangelistic
work during the Christmas Holidays. Besides this, the committee cooperates in
industrial service among the foreigners of our city.
The Reading Room is superintended by the Reading Room Committee.
Here are placed 58 of the leading magazines and periodicals for the use of all.
A Committee on Employment assists all students who are working their way
through College. This committee has proved a benefit to the students, and has
been of great service in securing employment for them.
Ever since the organization of the Y. M. C. A. here in I872, it has realized
and enjoyed a continued growth and development. It meets a place and fills a
need at our College not met by any other organization. The four-fold character
of its aim, the high standard of its principles, the pragmatic nature of its work
appeal to all.

CLARA E. BLECK, 714
The Young VVoman's Christian Association 'orms one of the most important
as well as most helpful organizations for the college girl, who is willing to be bene-
fitted by opportunities. The association has for its aim the spiritual development
of the girls. In fact, it is an organization that gives to the girls a form of develop-
ment Which is apt to be neglected by other activities of student life.
A few facts concerning the nature and manner in which our Y.W. C.A. is carried
on might be of interest Out of the one hundred and ten girls enrolled, we have
ninety-five as members of the association. The regular weekly meetings are held
on Thursday evening, at which the average attendance is about seventy per cent.
Besides being of a devotional character, subjects are often considered which are
of special help for the girls.
The work of the Y. W. is carried on under the direction of the cabinet. This
body consists of the president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer of the asso-
ciation, with the chairman of the religious meetings committee which arranges for
all the Y. YV. meetings, and with a similar committee of the Y. hi. C. A. helps in
arranging for the joint meetings held every Sunday afternoon.
The Bible Study Committee arranges for quiet hour meetings and selects the
texts to be used for that purpose. These quiet hour meetings are held at 6:15
p. m. every Tuesday evening during the first semester The percentage of enroll-
ment in these classes is about eighty per cent.
The hflissionary Committee has charge of all missionary activities, such as secur-
ing the Y. VV.'s per cent of funds in connection with the Y. hi. for the support of
a miwsionary in Japan, the organizing of lXfIission Study classes, and the selection
of text-books to be used. The Mission Study classes meet at 6:15 p. rn. on Tuesday
evening, for six or eight weeks after the beginning of the second semester. About
eighty-two per cent of the girls are enrolled as members of these classes.
The Room and Library Committee takes charge of our Y. W. rest room as well
as arranging for the regular weekly meeting in the Y. NI. C. A. Hall. In connection
with the Y. IW. it assists in the care of the reading room and the selection of reading
material for the same.
The Chairman of Reception and lkfembership with her committee has her most
important work at the beginning of the school year. They meet the new girls
on their arrival and assist them in making arrangements for rooms and board.
The Intercollegiate Committee aims to display the work of the Young Wcmen's
Christian Association and does this by,way of posters, not only exhibited here but
at other places such as the conferences of Y. W. activities. g
The Affiliate Membership Committee keepsqin touch with girls who were former
members of the Y. W. and thus strengthens the Association by the interest and help
of former students.
Upon the Social Committee devolves the work of supplying to our Y. W. that
social element necesfary for complete development. During the year various func-
tions are held in which all may share not only for enjoyment but also for training
along lines that society demands. Very early in the year a reception is given for
the new girls. Later in the school year a reception is given for the Y. M which
though not extremely formal in its nature, gives an opportunity for training and
information we cannot afford to miss. Another function is the lvfay Festival held
some time in lvfay.
On the whole, the Y. VV. C. A. aims to do what it can to present opportunities
to the girls that will bring about a realization of greater opportunities for all who
come in contact with the association so that greater good may result from their

Miss EDITH BRoADBooKs, ,I2, came to Northwestern from New York State.
There was a decided advance in all departments of Y. W. C. A. work during her
year as President. The need of the foreign field loomed so important that Miss
Broadbooks decided to place her life where it would count most. In November,
1912, she sailed for Belgaum, India, where she is very happily engaged in teaching
MISS EDNA SCHWEITZER7S career in life began in the Sunflower State. She
took a course in vocal and instrumental at North-Western College, graduating in
IQIO. The plea for music teachers for the children of japan found a sympathetic
chord in her and she cheerfully prepared herself for that work. She continued her
study at Chicago Musical College. In October, 1912, she sailed for the Sunrise
Kingdom, where her sunshiny disposition continues to cheer and brighten all about

The Lake Geneva Student Y. M. C. A. Conference for IQI2 was held June I4
to 23. We fourteen N. W. C. men left Chicago in a rainstorm which followed us to
Geneva, but we soon found shelter in the comfortable tents in the camp. The
pleasure of the time-honored 'cmorning dip" was a dream to most of us, for, tho
"our spirits were willingv the water was cold and We were much warmer in bed.
But we did have some good swims and boat-rides and the best time of our lives.
Every afternoon except Sunday was given over to athletic fetes. Some of our
own men made very favorable showings in the contests.
The Lake Geneva Conference is one of the greatest experiences that a college
man can have. Here we got in a few days what would have required months and
even years of study and effort. The personal touch and the privileges of hearing
such men as George S. Eddy, Raymond Robbins, Chas. D. Hurrey, Fred B. Smith,
Harry Fosdick, Bishop McDowell, is no small one. We learned from them the
conditions in all parts of the world. A special favor and inspiration was the pres-
ence of fifty-six Chinese students who are in this country preparing for service at
home. The stories of sacrifice of some of these men put us to shame as we thot
how little we had made and how unappreciative we had been. We saw the bril-
liancy, determination, and true manhood of these students.
Meal-time was an enjoyable occasion not only because of the good meals, but
also because of the College songs and yells given by the different delegations. Of
course, we didn't forget to give our Northwestern yells.
Anyone who has attended the life-work meeting on the lake shore knows what
we mean when we say that we had a foretaste of heaven there. The quietness of
the water, the beautiful reflections of the setting sun, the melody of the quartet,
the puffing of the little steamer-all these put us in the proper attitude to think
of the investment of our lives.
We shall never forget the last meeting by the lakeside. This was a farewell
service to outgoing missionaries. One of these, Mr. McKnight, has attended
Geneva Conferences for twelve successive years. His parting message was very
impressive, but the most impressive part was the silent scene when Bishop McDowell
who has met McKnight at Geneva every year for twelve years, stepped to his side
and placed his hand on his shoulder. No words were spoken, but we all saw how
these two lives had been knit together in Christian friendship.
Surely no man who spends ten days at Geneva can fail to be benefitted, and no
man can live up to the standards there set up without being a better Christian.
If any man has had a feeling that he cannot be a real man and be 'a Christian, let
him go to Geneva and learn that being a Christian is a man's job.
The above privileges and opportunities also apply to the ladies of the Y. W. C.
A., whose conference is held later in the summer. Besides the many sources of
pleasure afforded, such as bathing, canoeing, trips to various places on the lake,
etc., is the opportunity to become acquainted with students from ninety or a hun-
dred other schools and colleges of the country. The opportunities and inspiration
of the Lake Geneva Conference to every young lady cannot be estimated, for it
gives one a broader view of the Y. W. C. A. work, and brings one into close con-
tact with the organization as a whole. -

The Brnbihitiun league
R. I. SEDER, 714
The one great purpose of the national college prohibition movement is broad and
practical study of the liquor problem as a preparation for earnest, active and in-
telligent leadership in the overthrow of the saloon and its attendant social and
political evils. This then is also the prime purpose of the local leagues Which ac-
complish their Work, KID by scientific study and research work, Czj by popular
meetings, programs and addresses, QD thru the oratorical contest. This contest
system is the intercollegiate feature of the movement. Being the largest scheme
of college and university meets ever put into actual operation in America, it offers
the best possible opportunities for competition and honors in that it brings so many
colleges and universities of our country together into one system. The local con-
test winner goes to the State contest, the State winner to the Interstate, and the
Winners of three Interstates to a National contest held every two years.
The local league had forty-five members this year. Work was done mainly thru
league meetings, society programs and public addresses. Among the speakers
secured Was Dan Poling, Whom We have all learned to love. Along practical lines
several meetings were held in young peoples' societies of our local churches, and
Whenever possible We cooperated With the local prohibition forces. Our local
oratorical contest Was the strongest one that has been held here in some years.
Five contestants, representing every college class and the academy, took part and
the Winner, Mr. Butzer, acquitted himself nobly, by winning third place in the
State contest. In this latter contest Mr. Butzer met some of the best orators of
our State, and we have reason to be proud of him and to expect great things from
him in the future. The future looks promising for the Work.

lt is the aim of the Faculty Committee having in charge the lecture course, to
make each year's series of entertainments better than the preceding one. The
course at North-Western has attained such a high reputation for excellency in the
past that it was difficult to book still better talent. Yet the course which has just
closed was pronounced by many of its patrons the best yet.
Strickland W. Gillilan is a born humorist. He walked into our presence Nov.
12th, and after an evening of rare fun and pathos, left us wishing to hear him again.
His humor is spontaneous, native to the man, and is sure to awake the risibles of
the most sedate audience. Yet he subtly taught many a life lesson in the course
of his entertainment.
John E. Gunckel, the newsboys' friend, seemed to please all of his hearers. His
remarkable story of his efforts in behalf of the newsboy waifs of Toledo, Ohio, is
a recital to command interest. Our audience, quick to appreciate humanitarian
efforts in general, was not slow to enter into the spirit of Mr. Gunckle's lecture.
Dr. S. Parks Cadman, the renowned Brooklyn pastor, was with us on the evening
of Jan. 15. His lecture was a magnificent piece of diction, an almost faultless model
of rhetoric, but in the development of the theme did not perhaps please the more
critical in his audience so well. However, it was a privilege for our student body
to see and hear so eminent a pulpit orator as Dr. Cadman.
lvlontaville Flowers on the evening of Feb. 4, gave us a dramatic lecture and in-
terpretation of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Lovers of Shakespeare were loud in there
praises of this number.
The Weatherwax Quartette of vocalists and trumpeters closed the course on
March Ioth with a concert of unusual excellence. The variety afforded by the
trumpet numbers was very agreeable.

The Senate of North-VVestern College is an organization modelled after the
United States Senate. It is limited to a membership of twenty-five men chosen
from the college and seminary departments. The annual session extends thru the
three months, January, February, and March. Meetings are held each Saturday
from 12:45 to 2:oo p. m. Each Senator-elect, after taking the oath of oilice, chooses
his seat in the Senate Chamber and the state which he Wishes to represent.
The aim of the Senate is four-fold, to foster interest and ability in debate, to
develop ability in impromptu and extemporaneous public speaking, to give an ade-
quate knowledge and understanding of the problems before the people for settle-
ment and to properly acquaint all With rules of parliamentary procedure.
Free discussion of the bills and resolutions, introduced in Senate, dealing with
live questions of the day and With policies of the school afford ample opportunity
for the full realization of these aims. Like any other organization, the ones who
put the most into it derive the greatest benefit.
Some of the bills related to such questions as: Increased Civil Service, Six-year
Term for President, Curbing of Trusts, Minimum Wage, Aerial Trespass, Pensions,
Girls' Dormitory, and changes in the Point System, Enrollment Fees, and Cur-
riculum. . ,
Thus, in providing a chance 'for development and instruction along these prac-
tical lines our Senate meets a need and accomplishes its peculiar mission. To
those of us Who have been privileged to share in its Work, the Senate seems Well
deserving of a place in our school.

Among the many important associations here at North-Western, one of the most
important, both in point of membership as well as in a general and universal in-
terest, is the Athletic Association. Unlike most colleges, membership inthis or-
ganization is not compulsory, yet about ninty-nine percent of our students have,
during this last year, belonged to it. Membership gives one the privilege of trying
for places on the various intercollegiate athletic teams, of playing on class teams,
of using any of the material of the Association, subject of course to the regulations
of the Association, and voting privileges.
According to its constitution this organization was formed for the express pur-
pose of promoting and regulating the athletics, both intercollegiate and interclass,
of our school, and for the purpose of best doing so, the association divided its Work
up into five departments, the Football, Baseball, Basketball, Track, and Tennis
departments. Each of these departments has a manager who is in immediate
charge of the affairs, coming under that branch of athletics. His actions, however,
are subject to the approval of the Board of Control of the Association, of which he
is a member, and to a certain extent, to the sanction of a joint committee of the
Faculty and student body. ln this Way the Association has striven to promote
and regulate athletics in a Way best suited to the interests of Northwestern. It has
tried to keep them on an amateur basis and to get as many as possible of the stu-
dents of the school to participate in athletic contests.

E. A. GEISTER, '13
When school began last fall there were grave fears that a Varsity Basketball
team would not materialize, as Biester was the only surviver of the team of 1911-12.
It was a happy disappointment, however.
There were times when the team shone more brightly and times when they
shone less brightly than usual. It cannot be expected that every North-Western
team could perform the miracle of defeating Notre Dame on Notre Dame's floor, as
did last year's team, and still less is it to be expected that every North-Western
team could travel from 7:45 a. m. until 6:30 p. m. and then beat the Michigan
Aggies in their own den, as did this year's team. On the following night at Hope
College, playing under the handicap of A. A. U. rules, they were defeated, but
showed a fighting spirit that made the Hope crowd cheer again and again.
The Evanston Reds game was one of the prettiest exhibitions of a stonewall defense,
a superb offense, together with beautiful teamwork, that it has been our good
fortune to see. It was exhibitions of these kinds that ranked this year's Varsity
among the best that ever represented North-Western. '
Instrumental in the success of the team, Capt. Biester is indeed to be congratu-
lated upon his work. Playing his old position at right guard, he followed his habit
acquired in former years of forever trying to be in some place where he had abso-
lutely no right to be. Harry "Oberammergau" Oberhelman, left guard, was the
right kind of a man to play with Biester. He was a terror to all would-be-dribblers
and basket-shooters. After Troxel had been substituted for Biester in the Battle
Creek game, the coach of the Michigan team remarked that we were fortunate in
having substitutes who were as good as were the regulars. Trox was a valuable man.
Before the season opened, the center position was a problem to everyone, but
after it opened it was a problem only to Hanneman, alias Lucile. Although he
was not, at the time of the game, more than six feet four in length, he succeeded in
getting the jump on every opposing center he met. Of the forward positions,
one was filled by Kluckhohn. He was the hardest worker and the hardest passer
of the team. His strength enabled him to tear away from would-be-holders and
to break up dribbles, and to follow the ball to such an extent that he was the despair
of his opponents. His team-mate, Rube Seder, Captain-elect for next year, was
the shiftiest man on the' team. He had the happy faculty of sidestepping and
dodging down to a fine point and his dodging dribbles down the floor were pretty
to see. The other forward position was held by Wee Willie Blumer. His quick,

Baseball Seaman nf 1912
F. L. BIESTER, '14
The Baseball season of 1912, considering the schedule and the class of teams
played, was quite satisfactory. As usual the team was handicapped by the lack
of a proper playing field, a handicap which has happily been removed thru the Bur-
lington Railroad's gift of a new athletic field. Another very serious drawback was
the lack of any sort of a coach and there is no doubt but that we could have finished
the season with a much higher average if the men had had proper instruction.
Practice was started at the earliest possible date and after careful consideration
the team was picked. The following day found them lined up against Armour In-
stitute on our field. Always a strong contender for honors in the national pastime,
Armour came outdetermined to defeat us but failed in their efforts. This victory
was due almost entirely to the work of Kluckhohn, who did the pitching and made
the exceptional record of twenty-two strike outs. Our games with DeKalb proved
an even break, the game at DeKalb being lost because of loose playing while they
were easily defeated on our grounds. DePaul University, recognized as one of the
strongest college teams in the vicinity, won their home game from us while we de-
feated them here by a much larger score by playing a much tighter game than was
put up on their grounds. The tall Chicago Freshmen gave us an exhibition of
what coaching will do and defeated us in the one game which we played. Loyola
University and St. Viator College were both new teams on our schedule and proved
to be good additions for both teams gave us some of the best games of the season.
St. Viator broke even, losing on our grounds and winning on their own, while Loyola
lost to us after an exciting game. The following is the schedule of games played and

The Uliratk Seasnn nf 1912
H. W. HANNEMAN, '13
The season of IQI2 in track was from every standpoint an excellent one. Five
meets were arranged, the first inter-class meet. There were forty-five men com-
peting here for honors. The class of 712 won the meet. This gave excellent train-
ing for the Varsity, which were to meet the North Western University Freshmen
in their lirst attempt. Here, due partly to hard luck, we were beaten in the final
court of 47 to 74. Capt. Freeman set a new record in the mile, putting it at 4
min., 44 3-5 sec.
Our next meet with Armour Square and Sherman Park was called off on account
of rain, so we traveled to Notre Dame, and met one of the strongest teams, if not
the strongest team in this section of the country. The final count was 26M to
88 5-6. Although a one-sided score, all events except one or two of the dashes,
were very closely contested. Here Jud Gamertsfelder equalled the high jump
record at 5 ft., 7 in. Marvin Frederick ran a dead heat in the two-twenty yard
dash and Schlueter took first in the mile.
Our next meet, which was held on our own track, was with Carroll College,
and was the best meet of the season. Every man was at his best, and a perfect
day helped much. The count in this meet was 49 to 82 in favor of North-Western.
Harry Miller established a new record in the pole vault, putting it at IO ft., 7M
in., and Arthur Talman set a new record in two-mile run, making it in II min. Hat.

The IQI2-I3 season of co-ed inter-class basketball Was beyond a doubt the most
satisfactory that the girls have ever played. There were five teams in their league
one representing the Juniors and Seniors, Sophomores, Freshmen, Academy, and
Musics. The girls took a very lively interest in their games and consequently
some of the very best games Were played. There was great improvement in skill
displayed over that of former years.
The Sophomore girls were the real class When it came to playing basketball.
They Won all their games by large, safe margins, and We believe if there were girls'
teams of other colleges to be played, the girls of 1915 could give a good account of
Girls' inter-class basketball at North-Western College has proved itself a bene-
ficial form of athletics during the cooler months when tennis, Walking and other
forms of outdoor exercise are impracticable and will take a larger place continually
in the favor and practice of our college sisters.

The interest in football has been progressively increased for the last three years,
by means of the inter-class games. Every fall as soon as the enrollment was over
With, the pigskin has been the center of attraction. And this fact adds Weight
When We consider the interest the student body takes in football. In no other
branch does such loyalty show itself.
The Seniors this year came out of the tournament as undefeated champions.
They deserved first place because of their superior team Work, and efficient back
field. They Were a little at the advantage, having played together four years,
While the Freshmen seemed to play on the losing side. The Juniors finished second
and easily deserved second place. Last year the Seniors Were barely held out as
champions, but this year played hard football from start to finish. During the
Whole season no one Was injured seriously in any way, which fact has more Weight
When it is remembered that all the players Were not always Well equipped.

thou bright and morning stars, how hath thy glory fallen." For what honor is
it to have a crown upon our heads if we stand up to our knees in the mire?
Upon the golden Candlesticks above the hearthstone of the school should glow
with unwaning brilliance the sacred flame of moral truth. Let that Hame go un-
cared for, let it burn low in its socket, and the glory of the school has fled, the holy
genus hath forsaken the halls of learning. It is as though the crown had lost its
gems, as tho? the sky had lost the sun. Human hearts are God's choice acres,
and should be sown with the finest of the wheat.
The school has contributed a handsome share to the nationls weal. Back of
Webster and his "Plymouth Rock Orationn stands Dartmouth College. Read the
tribute of this worthy son to his Alma Mater in his famous plea for the charter of
that school. Back of Lowell and his "Vision of Sir Launfal" stands HarvardCollege.
Read his"Commemoration Ode," the heartfelt tribute to the noble boys of the school
who went to the front at the country's call to fight for God and Home and Native
Land. Back of Tennyson and his "Idylls of the King" stands Trinity College.
Here he formed the friendship of Arthur Hallem, the "loved and lost" of "In Mem-
oriam." Back of Longfellow and his "Psalm of Life," back of Hawthorne and his
"Scarlet Letter,,' stands Bowdoin College. Back of Gladstone and his "Land
Measures" stands Oxford College. The Constitutional Convention of 1787 which
gave us our federal Constitution, was composed mostly of college men. We prefer
to call in the physician ofexperience and broad culture to minister to our sick.
Life is too precious to risk in the hands of the unscrupulous and unprepared. We
want men of training to shepherd us in the fields of spiritual truth. We want only
the well trained to teach our youth. To ask teacher, pastor, and physician to
undertake their important work without needed preparation is like asking a carpen-
ter to build a fine up-to-date house with only a hammer and a saw.
The college stands for intellectual growth. It can hope only to develop the raw
material that it receives. It presents to Memory a treasure of useful information.
Memory is a store house which should not be filled with chaff and infested with
vermin, but should be filled with seed for tomorrow's sowing. Memory should
furnish the blue prints for tomorrow's building. Memory should warn of hidden
rocks and treacherous shoals. The youth ought to be instructed in the traditions
of the past. They ought to venerate great men who have excelled. They should
leave the rubbish heap of trashy reading and catch the inspiration of the masters.
The college also aims to discipline the imagination. The imagination will
either lift us heavenward, or drag us to perdition. The imagination plays a great
part in the affairs of men. Submit a problem to a man of vivid imagination and
,,f7i'f'6l"'ct fig ,EZ

,K Q tsl.-.-Mc. asia 4 .- '- ' ' e
also to a man of deficient imagination. The one pictures all the relations involved
in the problem before his mind and the solution flashes to his mind like inspiration.
The other gropes in the dark. He can neither see nor understand. Thousands
have seen wires heated to incandescence. Thousands have felt the heat of the
electric current. But it took the man of disciplined imagination to heat a wire to
incandescence by the electric current. The imagination plays an important role
in the field of letters. Ruskin's f'Sesame and Lilies" is rich in imagery. Few could
portray with such vividness as could Webster, the pathos of other scenes and other
events. Few could thrill the hearers with the ecstasy of other's experiences. Few
could take the multitudes with them to a bleak Plymouth Rock, and make them
hear the wind shriek thru that rigging on the drear December day, and have you
seen the children houseless but for a mother's arms, and homeless but for a mother's
love. The man of disciplined imagination overwhelms the mental beggars of the
world with unnumbered gems. But that imagination is to be chastised with the
rod of reason, gently led by the sanest affection, and clothed in the garb of holiest
The School also aims to develop a practical and intelligent judgment in the
affairs of life. It should develop a passion for facts. It should train the student
to reserve his judgment till the evidence is all in. The student will meet with prob-
lems. in life whose solution he will not find in a book. He may be called upon to
hew his own way thru the forest. His may be the work of the pathfinder, the pio-
neer, the torchbearer. He may some day be thrown entirely upon his own resources.
Then there will come to his rescue, the discipline wrought out thru years of con-
sistent thought life. The student is to guard well his mental habits, if he would
be strong for service. The mission of the school then is to unload our accumulated
ignorance, and develop the power of sound and correct thinking.
In this day there is need of deepening the sources of inspiration. Our lives are
made shallow by the mania for excitement and entertainment. The craze for nov-
elty leaves empty both our purses and our heads. No man can ever have a message
for his age without a deep, vital, life experience. It is the depth and accuracy of
inspiration that determines how far our lives will carry. With the right inspiration,
a voice in the wilderness, or a voice in the dungeon may bear a message that can
be heard above the din and clamor of the ages.
Character should be taken into account as well as scholarship. Other things
being equal, preference should be given to the school whose teachers and students
strive to maintain a wholesome moral and religious standard. Why is not the art
of right living as important as the art of hand painting? Why should society be
more interested in the science of physics than in the science of morals? A man
may be pronounced wise by the world, but the divine verdict may pronounce
him a fool. He may be able to say as did one of old "Soul thou hast much goods
laid up for many years. Take thine ease. Eat, drink, and be merry." But does
a soul eat bread? Does a soul care for meat? Can a soul fatten on corn? And
when God calls for his soul, he awakes to the fact that he has provided only for the
body. He has fed the body and intellect only. He has neglected his soul. He
was not rich toward God. He had no treasures laid up in heaven where moth doth
not corrupt, and where thieves cannot come. His body had grown fat, but his
poor soul, shrunken and shriveled up, had to sneak in to heaven where it needs first
some gentle mothering by the angles.
The great need of today is men of character, men who do right because it is
right. hffen of character feel the touch of responsibility. A candle must be touched
to the flame before it can crown other candles with living light. There must be
first incident rays before there can be reflected rays. He who denies his mind read-

When the cares of life press him hard for social sympathy and service. Like the

The Potter touches plastic clay into vessels meet for the lXfIaster's use.
The Artist touches vacant canvass into moonlit lakes and sunlit harvests.
The Sculptor touches crude marble into forms of grace and beauty.
The Builder touches shapeless stones into pillar, arch, and palace.
The Psalmist touches silent strings into strains of sweetest music.
The Poet touches scattered Words into lines of life and love.
The Mother touches youth into chaste and chivalrous character.
The School touches reaching minds with hands of help and uplift.
The touch of responsibility transforms lives. Here, for instance, is a lad who
comes from a good home. But because he carries no responsibility he begins to
drift out upon the streets, and is headed for failure. His father sees it, and gets
him a position in a bank. The responsible position is a challenge to him. The
banker gives him sound advice. He tells him to keep the bank's business to him-
self. He tells him that strict honesty is the bank's best guarantee. He reminds him
that he is being entrusted with the people's hard earned money. He instructs him
to treat the customers with deepest courtesy and respect. He Warns him of strang-
ers and dead beats. These responsibilities make a man of him. He does not go
through the streets like a sounding brass or a tin horn. He is thoughtful and
sober. The touch of responsibility will not make all men great. Hard materials
give polish only to the diamonds in the rough. It grinds soft material to powder.
The heat of the crucible which purges gold of its dross completely consumes material
that has no gold in it.
Pathetic indeed the life which finds greater joy in the trivial transient things of
life, than in meeting its stern responsibilities. What a disgrace to Weep over
artificial pathos, and be unmoved by the real pathos in life. The mission of the
school is to impress youth with the responsibility to home and state.
Let teacher and pupil be living epistles of truth and right. Let them be as
bright and shining lights. Let them become to many a soul on their journey thru
life what the staff is to the Weary pilgrim, what the oak is to the tender vine, what
the sheltered cleft in the rock is to the Weary wandering dove that has been caught
and torn by the storms of the night.
Let the school remember that it is sowing upon choice acres. Let it realize that
good soil is Worthy of the finest of the Wheat. In the dreary days of sowing, in
the cold rough days of seedtime, it should not forget the golden days of harvest,
when precious sheaves are garnered and when it shall be said, "One reapeth what
another hath sown."

'fMaxine! How often have I told you that I dislike Hattery?"
You have very pretty eyes."

'fOh, bosh! Maxine, who is it? You know I'm not conceited. Who is it?"
"Yes, inquisitive. Who wouldn't be when one's eyes are wanted. Maxine,
don't look so. You just said you could trust rne. This everlasting gossip about a
fellow around here gets me tired. Iill be glad to get off to college-that is-of
course I hate to be away from you, but you know-this continual gossip. I realize
itis no better at school, gossip, gossip, gossip. I know who said it. They've been
having it in for me for some time. I wish they would come right out and say things
and not involve girls! Eyes! Eyes! Ha! Ha! It makes a fellow laugh in spite
of himself. But it does get me sore! I swear upon my honor-H
"That I haven't as much as looked at a girl-and never will, except at you."
"Ah, don't be too sure, Stephan. Wait till you get back to college. You'll
forget all about insignificant me. Poor Maxine! But I mustn't pity myself.

on the early train. Is this your send-off? Please, please relieve the suspense.
Who under the heavens, beneath the earth, or in the sea, wants my eyes? Pleasell'
Maxine Fisher took both the hands of Stephan Hamlin in hers, and then looking
calmly into his deep blue eyes smilingly said: "A blind man."
Revenge! Oh, how sweet revenge will be! Revenge is cruel. It is unmanly.
Stephan Hamlin knew this. But as is generally the case, a strong man has his weak
point and the Achilles, heel of Stephan Hamlin was to get revenge. To play a trick
on Hamlin, the boys had learned, was to hurl a boomerang. And yet everyone
knew that at heart Stephan Hamlin wasagood fellow. Once "in" with Hamlin you
were there to stay and no trick, tho he answered it, was sufficient to spoil a friend-
ship. Stephan Hamlin may appear to be distant and even negligent at times,
but at heart he is true. ,
When his friends, who happened to be at the station upon his arrival at college,
saw him alight on the platform, they gave ringing cheers and eagerly reached forth
Tff fxflzzl 7'
F- f L 'I""n-ua.. SPLQTRUM
to grasp his hand in welcome. He appeared especially fine this fall. Tall, broad-
shouldered, muscular, he looked every inch the man and athlete that he was. His
smile seemed exceptionally winsome, while his clear eyes flashed out sparks of good
humor. He went to his room at once, hastily set things in order, and left for the
college where he enrolled for what, thru clenched teeth, he termed to be 'ca mighty
solid year of hard work." By his card after enrollment one could see his specialty
was mathematics. Because of his fondness for it he had postponed taking it regu-
larly on his course, in the meantime putting his strength into those subjects which
he disliked, leaving as he would say, "a clear track on which to ride my hobby?
Thus Stephan Hamlin began the school year with determination. September
passed. October passed. November with its Thanksgiving had just bid adieu,
while the last leaf with its coming Christmas vacation hung upon the calendar.
And Hamlinis determination hung on also. The days were certainly passing rapidly,
It was really true that more and more of them slipped between the letters Stephan
was writing to Miss Maxine Fisher. She had noticed the negligence for sometime
but that it might be due to his work until such sentences as these appeared oftener
and oftener: "I spent considerable time with Ann last night . . I didn't go
to the game but enjoyed Ann's companyf'
Maxine could hardly understand. She hated to doubt. Doubt kills friend-
ship and she knew it. No, Stephan would be true. "And yet," she mused to
herself as she thot over it,' "others have proven disloyal. It was merely in jest
when on the afternoon before he left I told him that stronger ones than he had for-
gotten their loved ones at home."
The following week another letter came. It was three days late. Eagerly,
nervously, she opened it. It consisted mostly of "news" rather than of his own
accomplishments. What cared she about the affairs in school as long as he did not
figure in them. She wanted to know who Ann was, where she came from and what
business she had monopolizing the time of Mr. Stephan Hamlin-her Stephan.
So Maxine hastily read the c'news" and eagerly sought that which she feared seeing.
Near the end of the brief letter, in fact the briefest she ever received from him,
she read: "Last night was the formal reception. I didn't attend however. I
spent the evening with Anna. I bet you think I'rn foolish for neglecting such a
formal affair. They say, too, it was exceptionally fine last night. They had a
take-off on President Woodrow Wilson and his cabinet. Charley Strown was Wiilson.
Miss Tryst was Mrs. Wilson. I sure would have enjoyed seeing them but under
the circumstances I couldnit. Illl see the picture in the journal when it comes out.
Anyway I enjoyed myself with Ann."
Maxine Fisher wept. She tried hard to suppress the tears but she could not.
Unexpressed emotions are detrimental and so burying her head in her arms she
sobbed thru pains which only the wounded understand. The fount of her soul hav-
ing played out, she sat erect and tried to smile. Its brightness slowly dawned over
her wet face like the sun playing upon the rainbow. "I will be true. Only God
knows my temptations in an hour like this. But I told Stephan that regardless
of his attitude toward me, I would never forget him. I said it. I meant it. And
I'll live it out. But I do wish he'd leave Ann alone. Or either make a clean breast
of it. To think that he doesnit mention her last name, first 'Anna,' then 'Annf
It certainly breeds on familiarity. Yes, itis 'poor Maxine' now, in life not jest."
Maxine hardly knew how to answer. She was terribly inquisitive. But she
hated to confess it. She felt hurt but determined to play the woman and suffer
Stephan's next response was a bit sooner but the contents little encouraging.
It read in part: 'CA few more weeks and you'll be here to spend New Yearls Day
with me, as you promised to last fall. As you never go back on a promise I shall

expect you on the noon train of the thirty-first. I have some explanations to make
which I cannot well put upon paper. But I must close now as I'm very tired,
having stayed up until the 'wee hours' with Ann."
Maxine was perplexed. One moment she was happy in the thot of soon seeing
Stephan, then again she feared going. One moment she thot she loved him, trusted
him, believed in him. The next moment she doubted him, believed him false, hated
him. One moment she tried to laugh. The next moment her tears came unre-
sisted. She could not understand. She feared to. Again she summoned her
remaining strength and determined against death to be true.
"Why doesn't he clear himself? Itis 'Annaf 'Anna,' everlastingly 'Annaf I
hate to go. And I wouldn't go, but I said I would be true, so I'm going! I can
face him with an honest look and will demand to know and meet this 'Annaf
It will be hard, heart-breakingly hard, but I'll grasp her hand and congratulate
her, and if my self-control allows me, I shall give them my well wishes." The
hours of anxiety, plus the moments of pain, plus the seconds of anticipation, equalled
the time of departure. The scenery was beautiful, such a contrast to the bleak and
dreary heart of Maxine. The train rolled on and on and on and on and with the
change of scenery came the changes in Maxine's spirit: joy, pain, yearning, satis-
faction,fear,resig7nation, until the outskirts of the college town came into view and
preparation for leaving the train was made. It was needless to prepare meeting
Stephan-lyfaxine nearly exhausted, was resigned to her fate.
Stephan's greeting was cordial but beneath it all there was a bit of cool formality.
He seemed under a strain as if suppressing something. Maxine, too, unable to be
herself, put forth an effort to be natural. As she looked at the manly figure of her
host she knew she loved him but dared not confess it even to herself lest-
"Yes, Maxine, you shall see Anna. To-morrow night."
"To-morrow night? Not sooner? By your letters I donit see how you can
be away from her that longf' '
Stephan bit his lip and knit his brow. With a perplexed expression he slowly
drawled: "Well, we could see Ann tonight, say in my study about eight. But
Ann's quite wornf'
"In your study? Stephan! Oh,-H
f'Come lVIaxine, brace up. I have much to tell you and thot to postpone it
until later, but it's harder on me than you, so let's go to my study at once. The
fact is Anna's there now. Then you and I can go to dinner."
The distance was not far. Summoning all her courage and graceful bearing,
Maxine resolved to be true to the finish. f She fixed her hat, brushed her hair, and
readjusted her coat to appear at best advantage. The house was reached and the
hall-way entered. "Maxine," said Stephen as he closed the door behind him and
took Miss Fisher by the hand, "I have been mean to you. I feel guilty. I have
been cruel. Thru all my negligence you have been faithful and kind, asking few
favors or explanations. I feel really guilty. Many a night while you were home
thinking of me, at the very hour writing to me, I sat in that study with Ann. In-
stead of immediately answering your letters I gave Anna my attention."
"I felt it Stephan. But if that's the way you feel, all right. Let me meet her."
Stephan put his hand upon the knob, about to turn it, when suddenly he re-
leased his hold and took the hand of Maxine.
"Maxine, will you forgive me? Seven times seven forgive me?"
"Yes, Stephan, I forgive."
Then reaching over, he took a worn, torn, and much used book from the hall-
tree and placed it in Maxine's hand. HI-Iere then," he said, "be happy." Q
And while Stephan held her right hand as if in a death vise, Maxine took the
worn book, and looking at its title read: "Analytics.H

There are some men whose very lives make the blood flow hot thru the veins.
The dash of an Alexander, the undauntedness of a Napoleon, the brilliancy of a
Grant, put within the heart the longing for conquest, the enthusiasm of victory.
But there are other lives which leave us mute. By their humble service, they still
the surging passions within us and crush the monumental vainglory in self. I shall
speak to you tonight of such an one: one, who gloried not in his own accomplish-
ments, who exulted not in his own attainments, one whose life resembled not so
much the whizz of a meteor as the serene radiance of a star.
It is marvelous, indeed, how God brings the man and his field of labor together.
The man was born in Holland, his field was to be far-off Japan. The country was
being prepared for him, he was being moulded for his place in the country. It
is during these days of preparation that we first become acquainted with him,
and we find him in the southern part of the United States-stricken with cholera.
His frame is wasted to the similitude of a skeleton. Death's doors can almost
be heard creaking on their hinges. He is a young civil engineer who has come to
build bridges in the Southland, and Verbeck is his name-Guido Fridolin Verbeck.
Born in the land of dikes and canals, like many another restless youth, he had
crossed the seas to the land of opportunity. Having decided to enter the engineer-
ing profession, he had already gained a good start. But here he was, laid low,
with all of his hopes and aspirations melting into the realm of the ne'er-to-be.
But listen! God was refining gold by fire. Yes, God was entering a life.
Verbeck had chosen for himself the occupation of builder of bridges-his Maker
had chosen for him yet greater deeds-he was to be a builder of brains, a moulder
of minds, the foundation of a nation. Thus far he had followed his own inclina-
tions, now the divine summons came. On a bed of affliction, when nearest death-
when nearest God-Guido Verbeck gave the vessel to its potter to be moulded of
Him. And what did this mean? Did it mean that he saw a vision of high places
in some government? Did it mean that he was to sway thousands with his
tongue or control millions' with his signature? Did it mean that his place was to
be that of statesman, that of financier? No, no. It meant merely this, that he
was to sail to Japan as a humble missionary.
Some time later, as his ship entered the harbor of Nagasaki by moonlight, he
exclaimed enraptured, "I cannot describe the beauty that is before me." Ah,
but little did he know of the misery that was beyond him. He could not see the
aching hearts of weary fathers. He could not see the breaking backs of child
mothers. He could not see the disease-foul disease-that was eating the fiber of
Japan's young manhood. He could not see the lurking dagger of the ronin-the
foe of the foreigner. He could not realize that the message which had so often
cheered his own heart, could not be proclaimed from the housetops. And a shudder
would have passed over him had he known that his first convert was to be punished
by Imperial Edict.
But there was more than this before him. He was entering a land of possibility.
Old things were passing away. The clan spirit was dying. Schools were opening
for the examination of barbarian books. Raw recruits were drilled for an army,
foundries sprang up, and the belfries in pagan houses of worship were emptied

for the furnishing of arsenals. This nation, which had so long stood on the threshold
of time peering into the deep heavy darkness of the past, which had so long fallen
in worship before the dry parched bones of the dead-this nation was pressing
forth into the realms of the living.
No longer was the suspicious Jap frightened by the appearance of an eclipse.
He no longer believed that earthquakes were caused by a large catfish at the bottom
of the sea. This little Jap, who had so zealously palisaded his home against the
inroads of the foreigner, who had killed in his tracks the man who entered his land
unbidden-this little Jap had just admitted a Perry with all of his civilization.
Rather than remain Oriental and die, he had chosen to join the brotherhood of
nations and live. The new treaty port, Yokohama, "shot up out of the swamps
like a city built in a night." Yes, a new era was dawning for Japan. And in this
land young Verbeck takes up his labors as mission teacher.
Ten years have passed. The emperor has died, and his son, a youth still in
his teens, ascends the throne. Outside the palace is a band of men seeking admit-
tance. Thru the royal halls they come, and march directly to the throne of their
monarch. These students-for students they are-have come for a purpose.
They are convinced that a change is necessary in administrative affairs, and taking
the reins of government in their own hands, they compel the young emperor to
swear that he will found his empire on principles of reason and not upon tradition.
One day the youthful ruler makes a review of his troops. Down to the seaside
he marches. Before him stands the long line of Japan's soldiery. He does not
turn his back to them as did his father of old. Neither do they prostrate themselves
in the dust before him. No. Ruler looks straight at ruled, their faces aglow with
affection, and together they cry out, with democratic patriotic ring, "BanzaiI
Banzai! Live forever!"-and back of this was-Verbeck. He it was who had been
the teacher of the young revolutionists. He it was that planted the seedlings of
reform in the young minds. He it was that had taught Iwakura so that long after
he might serve his country as premier. Guido Verbeck, alone, silently, in the sha-
dow-was building Japan.
This was the man that young Japan chose to found a government school. This
school became Imperial University and finally developed the educational system
for an empire. Here were fixed the standards of the classroom for every grade.
Here were taught the principles of western civilization. Socrates and Aristotle
took the places left vacant by Confucius and Mencius. Here were trained the
five hundred young men, the flower of Japan, who after completing their education
in America, were to wield a mighty influence in their nation. Here was trained
one who himself was to become the founder of one of the first private universities
in his land-Count Okuma. And all this was the result of the toil of Guido Ver-
beck, the teacher.
Then he was made chief advisor for the new regime. This was a position not
in the limelight, not in the public eye, but one of vital importance. Problems of
war and peace came to him for solution. National and international questions
came to him for answer. His word was final. The world without stood awe-
struck at the marvelous progress of the infant nation. But few knew the reason.
Few knew that one man was sacrificing glory, was sacrificing name, was sacrificing
self, everything, that Japan might stand foursquare to the world. What, can it
be that this nation which had only a few years before turned away the white man,
can it be that this people which was probably now murdering aliens outside her
gates-can it be that she was trusting a Dutch American with her government?
Yes, for this was a real American.
It is some years later, and the courts of civilized nations welcomed to their

halls three Japanese statesmen. These men were making a tour of the world to
see the resources of civilized nations, to discover the secret of their power. The
powers were astonished at the keen insight of the men, and found that they were
also men with problems. Iwakura was the leader of this embassy and scales were
falling from his eyes. His vision was no longer narrowed by the confines of a little
island. His first message homeward was, "Tear down the signs against Chris-
tianity." And down they came. "And whereff you ask, His the leader of this
embassy, where the author of this movement?" Come with me to Tokio. It is
well past midnight, and we must ascend the stairs to an upper room. There he is,
leaning over his parchments, writing, writing. He is engaged in translation.
See those drooping eyelids, those deepening fissures in that haggard Visage, see the
distant stare that lingers in those overtaxed eyes? He is shedding his blood that
a nation might be born aright. But wait a moment. See him now, Guido Verbeck
on his knees before his master, pleading for the people which he loves-not for
himself, not for name, no, "the name is nothing, the real results are all.', Ah,
what sacrifice! What unbounded unselfishnessl It is the conquest of an Alex-
ander, the bravery of a Napoleon, the statesmanship of a Grant, all this, and more.
It is like unto Him that gave His life as a ransom for many.
But the life spent itself. As he lived-so he died, in the quiet, serenely. A
shadow of mourning llickered over the land. Kind words of sympathy came to
the afhicted family from government, from statesmen, from leaders, from the masses,
all had been touched by the life. Japan had lost a teacher, a benefactor, a friend.
And not only Japan, not only the Qrient, but the world had lost a man.
It is not given to every king to sit on a throne, not every victor is crowned with
a wreath of laurel, and not every conqueror is welcomed to his native land amid
the shouts and cheers of his fellows. But if it be the part of a king to head a nation,
to control a government, to rule hearts, then we must crown Guido Verbeck as
a king. If it be the part of a victor to run and not be weary, to strive against odds,
to persevere to the end, then to this humble missionary belong the laurels. And
if it be the part of a conqueror to subdue principalities, to break powers, to demolish
things evil, then Verbeck of Japan should be hailed as a conqueror indeed. Oh
that young America might get a vision of that simple life, that overcoming life,
that life in the shadow-Guido Verbeck.

The master keys of humanity are in the hands of its leaders. In times of great
crises, the masses instinctively turn to them for guidance. The attitude of the
leader on any great question determines largely the attitude of the people. He
sways the surging throng. He controls their passions. He leads and they follow.
He towers up among them, like a lonely mountain peak against the cloudless sky.
Ifjuch be the power of a leader, let us briefly determine where that power resides
70029 of the men and women who make up Who's Who in America are college
graduates. We find the college man not only filling most of the positions in the
leading vocations of life, but occupying the foremost places in them as Well. There
are very few men indeed, who become lawyers without first studying law at college.
That great educational and uplifting force, the American pulpit, is being lead today
by Doctors Hillis, Cadman, and Gonsaulus, all of whom are college graduates.
That a large number of our high school teachers, that practically all college pro-
fessors and presidents are and must be, college graduates, requires no proof to an
intelligent audience. No one will dispute the power of a great public leader, yet
such men as Taft, Roosevelt, Bryan, and Wilson, who are exercising the greatest
influence on the American people today, are all college graduates. The last men-
tioned one who has recently been elected to the higest oflice within the gift of the
American people, is not only a college graduate, but a former college professor and
university president as well. Reliable statistics show that altho but two percent
of the young men of America go thru college,yet from this two percent, our nation
draws 7,700 out of her 10,000 leaders in all walks of life. President Thwing of
Western Reserve University, commenting on Ohio's progress, says, "Most of the
great men who have made Ohio what she is, have been trained in her colleges."
These facts plainly show that the man of ability the man of power, the man of
influence, the leader of the American people today is the college graduate. Then
it is a vital question what relation the college man bears to this, the greatest of all
American problems, the legalized liquor traflic.
Conservative estimates say that fifty percent of the college men of America are
users of strong drink. Mr. Crane, of Chicago, who directed a personal investi-
gation among several great universities a few years ago, declares that ninety per-
cent of our college constituency is tainted with liquor and fifteen percent irre-
trievably ruined. Altho the latter figures may be somewhat exaggerated, yet they
contain a great warning for us.
At Harvard University "Beer Night" is still observed in commemoration of some
great athletic victory. On these occasions recognized bouts are held, the object
of which is to consume as large an amount of liquor as possible at one sitting.
Can you imagine anything worse, than to see several hundred brilliant and talented
young men fill themselves with this cursed stuff, until they cannot contain another
drop? Oh, what savagery! What Barbarisml
At Ann Arbor, Michigan, there is a saloon called "The Orient," which is prac-
tically supported by college men. Everything is adorned to lure and attract.
A glimpse into this place reminds one of the devil's palace itself. The fascination
of those dazzling lights, the reflections of those bewitching mirrors, the playing
of passionate and exciting music, those walls covered with table tops bearing the

I . .
names and initals of former students, all serve their fiendish purpose,to draw men
down. Under these conditions we find a large number of university men spending
their evenings. Some sitting on the floor, a few on tables. Several swinging beer
bottles over their heads, others raising the destructive glass to their lips. One
singing, another swearing. Look at those bloodshot eyes, those blighted counte-
nances, those wasted frames. Here they are, spending money, wasting time,
wrecking bodies, weakening minds, destroying characters. The saddest part of
all is, that every one is an American citizen, every one a university man, every one
a possible future leader.
These are all actual instances taken from representative schools of the East
and West. Ah, what a sad and heartrending scene to look upon when the flower
of American youth hurls itself voluntarily from heights well-nigh divine, abundant
with opportunity, to depths well-nigh hellish, devoid of hope. What is the real
significance of a condition like this? It means that the great destroyer is entrench-
ing himself in the strongest of American strongholds. It means that the lives of
some of our future leaders are being shortened by thirteen years. It means that
the minds of some of our future leaders are being weakened from forty to seventy
percent. It means that the morals of some of our future leaders are being entirely
wiped out. In the words of a noted German professor, "to be convinced of its
moral effects one need only to study in Germany, the beer jokes, the beer literature,
and the beer conversation. The drinking of beer has truly killed the ideals and
ethics of the academic youth and has produced indescribable vulgarityf' What
it has done in Germany, it is trying to duplicate, yea excel in America.
But liquor-tainted colleges mean more than all this. They mean that American
colleges are departing far, far, away, from the purpose of their revered founders.
The vast majority of our colleges were brought forth by religious men. They were
dedicated to the highest moral and Christian principles amid prayers to Almighty
God. They were to send forth men of sterling character. But alas! Could those
noble men look back upon some of the institutions of their founding and see the
relation which so many college students, yea even professors, bear to the liquor
problem, methinks they would cry out in horror, "Oh, men, turn back! Turn
The time has come when American colleges must teach the science of right and
temperance as well as the science of books. The cherished hope of our nation is
dashed to pieces on the rocks of immorality and intemperance, when the university
and college teach only thefintellectual. We must maintain a high moral atmos-
phere, or good people will lose confidence in us. Liquor and morality never go
hand in hand. Strong drink must be driven out of our colleges at any price and
those who make the college are the only ones who can do it, and that means you.
The destiny of a nation depends upon its leaders. If they are illustrious, all
is well. But if perchance they are reducing their efficiency by paying tribute to
this great destroyer, then beware. This legalized curse is making terrible inroads
upon our nation's prosperity. We boast of a billion dollar government at Wash-
ington and yet we contribute twice that amount to an institution that opposes
education, that ignores law, that weakens manhood, that destroys virtue, that
sneers at order, that mocks justice, that damns the soul. Two billion dollars
tribute to King Alcohol. For what? For killing off .7oo,ooo men every year, for
producing eighty percent of our insanity, for reducing our productive efficiency
twenty-one percent, for creating untold suffering, poverty, and vice. Dr. Villars,
Chaplain of the State Prison at Joliet, says, "Ninty-five percent of the prisoners
at Joliet are there because of drink." This state, this nation, is in the death grip
of strong drink. Year by year it is growning stronger. Some one must break that
- O 4.5 gf ,- 'N
fx' x 5,
Q45 I-lvsfc. ISIS ' 4 ' ' ' 7
grip, some one must throw off those shackles, some one must banish this outlaw.
Who shall that some one be? Because of your ability, because of your power,
because of your influence, that some one can be none other than you, college 'man
and college woman.
This is the nation's biggest problem and it demands her biggest men. It is a
critical time in the history of prohibition. The forces of the opposition are drawn
up in dread array. The cause of righteousness hangs in the balance. Oh, college
men and women, in the name of humanity, in the name of America, in the name of
Almighty God, I plead with you, get into the fight. You are the leaders of society,
you hold the destiny of a nation in your hands. You control the master keys of
humanity, you are THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM. The attitude you take
toward strong drink will necessarily be the attitude of the nation. The Court of
Last Appeal points to you, college man and college woman, as the only solution
for this problem. Wherever you lead, humanity follows. Oh, lead them aright
on this great question.
Then shall the heavy black veil of drunkenness and vice which has so long hung
in the temple of American life, be "rent in twain" and a scene which has so long been
imaginary shall be made real. Then shall saloons and breweries lie in crumpled
ruins. Then shall the home regain its sanctity. Then shall the sun rise upon
a new nation,
"Where o'er the land from sea to sea,
Man unto man shall brother be."
And you, college man and college woman, can bring all this about. Wvhen duty
calls, when humanity pleads, when God commands, dare you refuse?
when in Q9nei flares fur fun
The bitter blast grows bitterer still,
And chills the heart that's true,
Cruel the thots the tired mind fill
When no one cares for you.
When all alone, your life returns,
With pleasant days not few,
And your ardent heart so passionately burns,
Where some one cared for you.
Slowly you drifted from friends away,
Loveless your poor life grew,
Little you thot so far to stray,
That no one would care for you.
A healthy glow was on your cheek,
Bright eyes like sparkling dew,
A fairer form was hard to seek,
While everyone cared for you.
Away the sigh, brush back the tear,
Crush now that feeling blue,
Some day, some where, perhaps not here,
Some one will care for you. WM. BLEAM.
