A Song' for Old Stevens
A song for Old Stevens and a cheer, boys, we raise
Let us sing in full chorus the name that we praise.
Let classmates together, each friend with his friend,
Wake the echoing cadence that never shall end.
A song, then, for Stevens and a cheer, boys, Hurrah!
We gather again from near and afar,
By the banks of the Hudson, by Castle and Hill,
Here's a pledge to fair Stevens, the dear Old Stone Mill
The years passing over, their changes shall bring,
And our sons in our stead for Old Stevens shall sing,
And classmates together, each friend with his friend,
Shall then waken the echoes that centuries blend.
A song, then, for Stevens and a cheer, boys, Hurrah!
We gather again from near and afarg
By the banks of the Hudson, she's standing there still,
Our own fair Alma Mater, the dear Old Stone Mill.

History of Stevens
STEVENS INSTITUTE, the first College of Mechanical Engineering in the country, is the
outgrowth of a bequest in the will of the late Edwin Augustus Stevens, dated April 15,
1867, in which there was left for the purpose of establishing a College of Mechanical Engi-
neering, a large sum of money, and the plot of land on Castle Heights, Hoboken, bounded
by Hudson Street, River Street, and Fourth and Sixth Streets.
About two years ago, the Trustees added to the original site seven acres of historic land
at Castle Point, originally owned by Colonel John Stevens. This land, which has been held
by the Stevens family for 143 years, had been confiscated by the British Government during
the American Revolution. It overlooks the old duelling grounds on the heights above the
Hudson, where Aaron Burr shot Alexander Hamilton. The purchase of land north of Castle
Stevens, originally the Manor House of the Stevens family, from Richard Stevens, rounded
out the 1nstitute's holdings and completed tl1e effort begun by the late Dr. Humphreys, who
had succeeded in 1911 in raising funds to buy the Castle itself from the children of Richard
Dr. Morton, the first President, was appointed by 'the Trustees in 1870 under the will of
Edwin A. Stevens fthe founderj. President Morton was a general scientist who won wide
notice early in life as the translator of the hieroglyphics on the Rosetta Stone, discovered by
excavation during Napoleon's occupation of' Egypt, and of great value in tracing the faint
trail of ancient history.
His work at the Institute was that of organizing a course for which there was no precedent
-namely, the qualification for the degree of mechanical engineer. Although modified by the
, -L. If
wider requirements ofthe profession, particularly in the electrical field, the Institute's course
remains essentially the same as outlined by him. The original endowment proving inadequate,
Dr. Morton gave freely of his own limited means, and secured the foundation, by Andrew
Carnegie, of the laboratory which bears the name of that great industrialist.
President Morton died in 1902 and Dr. Alexander C. Humphreys was elected to fill the
vacancy. Dr. Humphreys, having graduated from the Institute in 1881, had by this time
become a leader among engineers, and a recognized authority on water gas. In addition, he
was also active in general consulting work. His exhaustive study of accountancy and dc-
preciation led to a great demand for his services as expert witness, notably in the famous
liighty Cent Cas Case, in which his voluminous testimony proved conclusive. This practical
knowledge led him to organize at the Institute a course in the economics of engineering.
During his twenty-five years as President, many improvements in the curriculum and
buildings were achieved. The Morton Memorial Laboratory of Chemistry, one of the finest
in the country, was built shortly after President Humphreys' inauguration. In 1916, Dr.
Humphreys interested Mr. William Hall Walker in a gymnasium for Stevens, and soon after,
the William Hall Walker Gymnasium was built. flt has served the College extensively in an
effort to provide athletic training for every student.
During the war, the Government established a School of Steam Engineering for the Navy
and to this end built the present Library and Navy Buildings. These were purchased by the
College at the close of the war. The Library Building provides ample space on the top fioor
for the offices of all the publications. The Navy Building is used as a museum and electrical
The Honor System, a fixture at most of the leading colleges, has long been successful at
Stevens. It was adopted for all classes in 1907, and the placing of every student on his honor
proved successful-a tradition of which every student is proud.
In order to establish a better understanding between the student body and the faculty,
the Student Council was established in 1913 to represent the student body in all matters,
' ' T ' d""1'f' ,.n.-. ,,
"H ia Eixi t
and to control inter-relations of the various student activities. The Council has done wonder-
ful work at Stevens, both administrative and social, and has displayed keen judgment in
successful efforts toward bringing the students and faculty into closer relationship.
ln October, 1926, after twenty-five years of meritorious service at Stevens, Dr. Humphreys
tendered his resignation to the Trustees, to take effect in January, 1927. His resignation was
made imperative by severe illness to which he finally succumbed on August 14, 1927. The
Institute and students mourned the loss of Dr. Humphreys, who had done so much to
strengthen the student body, and make Stevens a bigger and better Institute of learning.
Thus, it required a whole year on the part of the Trustees of Stevens Institute to select a man
worthy of Dr. Humphreys, a man who would be willing to sacrifice his outside interests to
become the third President. The interim between the second and third Presidents was very
ably filled by Dr. Frank L. Sevenoak, a member of the faculty, who graciously served a year
as the Institute's temporary head. During the latter part of the College year of 1927-1928,
the Trustees announced their selection, and a testimonial dinner was given Dr. Harvey
Nathaniel Davis, who had consented to become the third President of Stevens Institute.
Thus did Dr. Davis, an eminent scientist and authority on steam, consent to leave his
professorship of mechanical engineering at Harvard to take up the reins left by Dr. Sevenoak,
and add to the undying fame of Stevens.

Dr. Harvey Nathaniel Davis
IQIQARVEY NATHANIEL DAVIS was born in Providence, Rhode Island, on June 6, 1881. He is
- descended from an old colonial family, being the son of Nathaniel French Davis and
Lydia Martin CBellowsD Davis. His boyhood days were spent in Providence where he first
went to school and where he lived and studied until his graduation from the Providence High
School. He entered Brown University, where his father was head of the department of
mathematics, and received his A.B. degree in 1901. In 1902, he received his Master's degree,
and with A.B. and A.M. behind him he started to conquer new fields at Harvard University,
winning his Ph.D. in 1906.
In the meanwhile, Dr. Davis had already begun his teaching career. From 1901 to 1904,
he was an instructor at Brown University and in 1904 he became an instructor at Harvard.
From 1910 to 1919, he was an assistant professor, and, at the end of this period, he assumed
the chair of mechanical engineering of Harvard University.
Dr. Davis has had a very interesting and varied professional career. In 1917, he was
associated with the General Electric Company as engineer in the turbine department at
Lynn, Mass. In 1918, he became aeronautical mechanical engineer in the United States Air
Service. In 1920, he joined the Franklin Railway Supplies Company, and in 1921 re-entered
Government service in the Bureau of Mines. He was consulting engineer for the Air Reduc-
tion Company in 1922. He is the author of several technical papers dealing with thermo-
dynamics and high temperature steam in particular. He is co-author of two widely known
books, namely, Practical Physics by Black and Davis, and Steam Tables and Diagrams by
Marks and Davis. Both of these books are recognized as standards, the one, as a High School
text-book, the other, as a world-wide authority on steam. Dr. Davis has taken out several
patents on the liquefaction and rectification of air, and one on steam turbines.
In 1928, Doctor Harvey Nathaniel Davis was chosen as the third President of Stevens
Institute of Technology. He made two formal appearances that spring, once at a welcome
dinner given by the Trustees and alumni, and once at a mass meeting where he addressed the
entire student body. I
Since the opening of College, last fall, he has been in office as President, and Stevens has
seen many changes which seem to give her a new lease on life. Doctor Davis's policies, which
were well outlined in his inaugural address, have been carried out successfully from the start.
There are many changes such as the new marking system and the "sliding scale" of grades,
the new type of examinations and the use of text and reference books during examinations,
and the new "cut systemf, The administration is entirely reorganized, and the duties and
powers of five Deans have been brought together under one Dean. The creation of the office
of Vice-President is an innovation of great value, for it allows the President to give his un-
divided attention to the educational side of his office while the Vice-President takes care of
the business end.
In February, the Trustees announced a raise in the tuition and Dr. Davis simultaneously
brought forth his plan of "sliding scale tuitionsf' This plan enables the more active and
valuable men to win back their tuition in whole or in part, thus investing the greater propor-
tion of the Institute's funds in the more promising men.
The introduction of a department of humanities is a large step towards broadening the
education of the Stevens engineer and making him a more completely educated College
graduate. Another move in this direction is the chair in economics known as the Alexander
C. Humphreys Chair of Economics of Engineering.
Doctor Harvey Nathaniel Davis, A.B., A.M., Ph.D., Sc.D., LL.D., is a member of the
Delta Phi fraternity, Phi Beta Kappa, and Tau Beta Pi. He is a Fellow of the American
Academy for the Advancement of Science, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the
American Physical Society, a life member of the American Mathematical Society, the
Washington Academy of Science and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

The Alexander C. Humphreys Memorial
N the front entrance to the Administration Building stands a bronze tablet which bears the
I inscri tion, "Alexander Crombie Humphreys, 1851-1927, President of Stevens, 1902-
1927." 'Ilhe relief portrait on the tablet is the likeness of President Humphreys, bareheaded,
clothed in academic robes, and seated with a scroll in his.hand. This work of sculpture was
done by Trygve Hammer, who is perhaps best known for his "Theodore Roosevelt" at
Tenafly, N. J., which attracted muc favorable comment last summer.
The memorial was unveiled at tl1e inau uration of President Harvey N. Davis on Novem-
ber 23, 1928. The Class of '81, of which the late President Humphreys was a member,
donated the gift. Mr. John Aspinwall, '81, made the speech of presentation. In giving the
accc tance s ecch, Mr. Alten S. Miller, '88, told of the work that Dr. Humphreys had done
for Sllevens dliring his twenty-five years as President. Little Peggy Loud, great-grandchild
of Dr. Humphreys, was supposed to ull the cord, but she got lost at the psychological
moment. Her father, Sherman Loud, Slevens, '20, grandson of Dr. Humphreys, performed
the ceremony instead.
The Alexander C. Humphreys Chair of Economics
N March 6, 1929, President Harvey N. Davis announced, at the New York State Cham-
O ber of Commerce, the contribution of 350,000 toward the endowment of the Alexander
C. Humphreys Chair of Economics of Engineering. At that time the endowment was only
one-fifth completed, but a special donation of the salary required for the first year made it
possible to appoint an occupant at once. One-half of the present endowment fund was given
y Arthur G. Glasgow, Stevens, ,85, of London, England, who was a former business partner
of the late President Hum hreys. The other contributors are: John Aspinwall, J. B. Klumpp,
E. S. Mott, George Giblls, Albert Blum, Henry L. Blum, Robert Boettger, Theodore
Boettger, Frederick A. Muschenheim, and Greer, Crane and Webb.
William Duane Ennis, graduate of Stevens in 1897, was ap ointed to the professorship.
Professor Ennis is at resent Director of Research of the Teclinical Advisory Corporation
of New York. Recentlly, he completed a comprehensive industrial survey of the State of
Virginia, and of late years he has made similar surveys of fifteen other communities including
the Mohawk Valley, the Port of Mobile, and the City of Cincinnati. Professor Ennis is by
no means new to Stevens students, for during the past year he has served as a special
lecturer in the College.
NYONE surveying the field of engineering education, and the relation thereof to the profession as
actually practiced, finds himself confronted by two facts. The first of these facts is the amount and
variety of specialization expected, even of undergraduates, and provided for in the multiplicity of curricula
or courses of study that are to be found in the catalogs of our engineering schools. You will remember, that
in medieval education there was the trivium of grammar, rhetoric and logic and the quadrivium of arithmetic,
geometry, astronomy and music, and that these seven branches of knowledge were supposed to have each its
proper place in the education of every scholar. So, too, engineering, that modern, efficient, all-serving
daughter of the great mother called science, that is herself a thousand years younger than trivium and
quadrivium-this engineering must apparently divide itself into its own trivium of civil, mechanical, and
electrical disciplines, and many schools add the further quadrivium of mining and metallurgy, chemical
engineering, sanitary and municipal engineering, and industrial engineering. But there is one fundamental
difference. Nowadays, it takes seven different scholars to compass the whole new septivium, whereas one
sufficed for the old.
Nor is this all. In many schools, some or all of these fundamental branches of our subject are further
divided and subdivided into a maze of options from among which the engineering matrieulate, or possibly
his more mature brother the ripencd Freshman or Sophomore, is expected to select that royal road best
calculated to lead him directly to the goal of his ambitions and the field of his life work.
My second fact in the present engineering situation, namely, the frequency with which one finds an
apparent contrast between the nature of the field in which an academically-trained engineer has, in fact, won
distinction, and the label of the training that preceded and, we may hope, prepared the way, for his success.
Among my own acquaintances, 'there is, for example, a man who took his degree in electrical engineering and
then proceeded to win for himself a reputation in a line of work that lies in the bordcrland between chemical
engineering and metallurgy, with scarcely a trace of electricity, or even of electro-chemistry in the whole
picture. Two other graduates, one in electrical and one in mechanical engineering, are now teaching various
branches of industrial engineering in the very institutions that once, so carefully, selected different labels for
them. A younger man, obviously destined for brilliant accomplishments in power plant engineering, was
trained and diplomaed as a boat-builder. A graduate in mechanical engineering, who even started to teach
that subject, is now the electrification expert of a great railroad. Another mechanical graduate is now in
responsible charge of the installation of all the electrical equipment in a great city subway. And still another
has just completed a notable bridge-building project. On the other hand, one of the most sagacious of
practicing mechanical engineers, and a much sought consultant in that branch of, presumably, civil cn-
gineering which deals with the estimation and development of water powers, had an academic training that
was supposed to produce a chemist.
Such cases as these could be multiplied indefinitely. Do they not indicate clearly that it makes very little
difference whether our sophisticated Freshman chooses wisely, or merely by drawing a slip of paper out ofa
hat, which one of the forty-three available disciplines he shall subject himself to? ls it not proved by such
cases that almost any curriculum in engineering will suffice to start almost any thoroughly competent man
on the road to success in almost any field, provided only that the said curriculum is thoroughly grounded on
fundamental principles? And that its spirit throughout is characterized by that sincerity of mind, that in-
stinct for analyzing every problem into its fundamental elements, that respect for facts and for reasoned
judgments based on facts, that appreciation of tl1e art of assembling happily chosen combinations of money,
materials, and men for the prosecution of activities beneficial to mankind, that are of the essence of all
engineering and of many other kinds of work as well?
But, you may say, these men succeeded in spite of the iuappropriateuess of their academic training, and
would have been cven more successful if, by a better fortune, they could have been put through the right
mill in their youth. Perhaps-and then again, perhaps not. Of course, there are many factors contributing
il, . 3,
i t ii rw ' mlm llllillliii mms
, ffiiiirhii l- - - i - ' ngsmaia r asf t!iEMiiEl tt'lllu ttna uai.H,Zg
to every success, the chiefof which are usually such elements of character as industry, loyalty, and common
sense. But, insofar as the appropriateness or inappropriateness of their academic training affected the result
at all, I am inclined to assert that these gentlemen, and their hundreds of thoroughly admirable fellow
misfits in the engineering world, have succeeded not at all in spite of, but, in part at least, actually because
of the apparent contrast between type of training and type ofjob that I have been emphasizing. In making
this statement, I am not trying to phrase a spectacular paradox. l' am trying to formulate a fundamental
principle of professional education that is so inherent in the trend of the times that it is being brought out in
different ways by a surprisingly diverse group of observers. You will remember that Josh Billings once said,
"It's fine to know a lot of things, especially if some of them are so." Similarly, I might phrase the principle
I am speaking ofin the words, "A youngster had better not know too many things, even if all of them are so"g
in other words, there is real danger in our teaching these students of ours too much about the specific careers
ahead of them.
Why waste time in an engineering school learning details, descriptions of processes and of machines, tricks
of technique of hand or brain, or even miscellaneous facts, all of which, insofar as one wants them at all, can
be learned far more effectively on the job? Why not devote one's time in the school in learning what one may
never have another chance to learn, namely, fundamental principles, and how to think? And always re-
member that ignorance, plus willingness to learn, plus ability to learn, is a far better basis on which to
establish appropriate and satisfactory human relationships with one's own organization, and with the world
in general, than is "knowing a lot of things, even if all of them are so."
My conception of the educational opportunity which the undergraduate engineering schools of today
would do well to offer to their students must be, by now, fairly clear to you. There will not be a multiplicity
of more or less specialized undergraduate curricula, each designed to train for some one variety of engineering
career. There will be one curriculum. And in this curriculum the emphasis will be placed on the basic dis-
ciplines that underlie all engineering careers: there will be plenty of mathematics, physics and chemistry:
there will be mechanics in all its branches, including the deplorably few fundamental principles that are yet
known as to the nature and serviceableness of the materials of enginecringg stress will be laid on thermo-
dynamics and in particular on the two laws of thermodynamics and on how to use them as a vital part of
one's thinkingg there will be electrodynamics with emphasis on the fundamental principles of both direct and
alternating current phenomenag at least a foundation will be laid in hydro and aerodynamics: and there will
be thorough training in the various arts of mensuration, and in the still greater art of feeling instinctively
the appropriate degree of skepticism as to the results. Many useful facts will be automatically stored away in
the studcnt's mind if his teachers will merely adhere strictly to the practice of basing every problem or
examination question on real data. But there will be a great dearth of survey courses designed primarily to
impart facts. Throughout, the method of attack, rather than the answer, would be the significant thing.
This curriculum will also emphasize the non-technical, purely human side of an engineer's life, by offering
an appropriate amount of history and literature, of economies and government, of psychology, of philosophy
and ethics and even of music and art, and by stressing the economic and human sides ofengineering itself in
every available way.
And finally, this curriculum will bc such as to develop in each individual student, to at least an acceptable
degree, the various arts of self-expression and of communication, including not only the sketching pencil and
the drawing pen, without which so many engineers are hopelessly inarticulate, but particularly the written
and the spoken word. Preferably, all of these arts of expression will be developed by patient, long continued,
informal, individual guidance, extending throughout the student's four years, and intimately related to the
ordinary activities of his academic life, rather than by a multiplicity of special, artificial activities called
plates, themes and orations.
There will, I say. be only one unspecialized undergraduate curriculum rather than seven or seventeen or
forty-three specialized onesg and the one curriculum will prepare, in one sense,for all sorts of engineering
careers, and in another sense for no career whatever. That is, it will not attempt to teach the details of any
one of many branches. Its graduates won't know much but they will have the saving grace of knowing that
.:.-,liiilllllil iilill lllll A mj lfgllllllll ,gngignsqsgzanlllnli

they don't know much, and of knowing what to do about it. If any of them fall into the hands of that captain
of industry of whom I spoke a moment ago, no positions whatever will be closed to them, for wherever he
puts them, they will carry with them an ample abundance of the black soil of ignorance in which to raise the
flower of eager self-education which he so much desires.
ln thus urging a single unspecialized curriculum, l am, you will notice, raising engineering education from
the status of the trade school, with its multiplicity of special apprenticeship courses, to the status of the
training schools of the older professions of law and medicine. There are corporation lawyers and criminal
lawyers and patent lawyers and admiralty lawyers and a dozen other kinds of lawyers, but in no first-class
law school that I am familiar with are there a dozen or even two separately labeled curricula. So, also, there
are surgeons and obstetricians and pediatricians and psychiatrists and orthopedists and internists and
specialists in the nose and throat, and even a few good old-fashioned family doctors, but every good medical
school gives them all the same fundamental training. Of course, both in law selmols and in medical schools,
the single curriculum has a certain flexibility through election by the student, and the same should be true
of our ideal engineering curriculum. But the amount of election that is commonly found desirable in the
schools of law and medicine is surprisingly small, especially when one considers the maturity of the students.
And furthermore, in law and in medicine there is intense specialization, as I have indicated above, but the
student begins it, in general, only after graduation, perhaps as an interne in a hospital, perhaps in the law
offices where he finds his first job, perhaps, in certain cases, through highly specialized post-graduate academic
study. ln engineering, also, there should be opportunities of all these kinds, but they should follow rather
than permeate the fundamental four years. Every engineer specializes sooner or later, and will, if he is a
first-class man, specialize more and more intensely all his life. If, during his undergraduate years, we can
lay a firm general foundation for this specialization, we shall have made the most effective possible contribu-
tion to his career.
The single, broad curriculum which I have outlined is no new thing at Stevens. Throughout the fifty-seven
years of its existence, Stevens has stood for one course and one degree. It is true that the degree selected
long ago, the degree of Mechanical Engineer, looks like a specialized degree, but everyone who is familiar
with what has been done during these years knows that the course has been far from correspondingly narrow,
and that Stevens graduates are to be found in almost every branch of mechanical, civil, electrical, and
chemical engineering, and in many less technical business and executive positions. Whether, with this ideal,
and with so definite a success in realizing it, Stevens has been wise in retaining an apparently specialized and
really misrepresentative name for its single degree is another question. There are many who feel that a general
degree in engineering would be much less likely to mislead prospective students on the one hand, and prospec-
tive employers on the other. But the weight ofa long tradition is not to be lightly cast aside, and there is
many an alumnus whose regret would be deep, sincere, and vociferous, if his son, now with us or still to come
to us, could not look forward to singing with his Dad the good old song, "I'm a rambling wreck from Stevens
Tech. a Mechanical Engineer."
However we may feel about the name of the degree, the essential thing is that we do the right kind of a
job, and do it as well as we know how. And to the furthering of the job, the job of giving one fundamental,
unspecialized, undergraduate curriculum, affording what might be called a liberal engineering education,
the job of turning out cadet engineers who, though largely untrained, are yet thoroughly prepared to train
themselves through long lives of usefulness--to the furthering of that job I pledge my best endeavor.

DR. H. N. DAVIS VICE-PRESIDENT CHEESE
DEAN FURMAN ASSISTANT DEAN WEGLE
FOR several years there has been a growing feeling of discontent with the Stevens adminis-
trative system. With the inauguration of Dr. H. N. Davis, a marked change was brought
about which places the presidential duties almost entirely in the field of "inspiring intellectual
and scientific leadership." In order to relieve the President of the duties of the business
administration, Mr. James Creese was secured to assume the office of Vice-President and
Treasurer. Professor F. DeR. Furman was appointed Dean of the College to attend to
student-faculty relations. The position known as Dean of Student Activities has been re-
tained under the name of Assistant Dean and is most ably filled by Professor J. C. Wegle,
the Registrar of the College.

The Fifty-sixth Annual Commencement Exercises
June 19, 1928
IFOLLOWING the custom inaugurated three years ago, tl1e Fifty-sixth Annual Commence-
ment Exercises were held in the afternoon on the lawn east of the Castle. A large tent
protected the stage and 'audience from the heavy downpour of rain. At 2:30 P. M., the
academic procession entered the tent, which hy this time was filled with a large gathering
of friends and relatives of the Graduating Class.
An invocation by the Venerable Malcom A. Shipley opened the exercises. Then, on
behalf of the Class of 1928, Kenneth J. Moser welcomed the assembled parents and friends
in his Salutatory address.
Following this address, Dr. F. L. Sevenoak announced the winners of the annual Scholastic
Prizes as follows-

Following the awards of the several prizes. Dr. Francis Ql. Pond presented Mr. Arthur
Graham Glasgow of London for the degree of Doctor of Engineering. .ln his address to the
Board of Trustees, Dr. Pond outlined Mr. Glasgow's life and pointed out the highlights of
his rapid rise to eminence as an internationally-known authority on manufactured gas.
"Modest, unassuming, a brilliant scholar, a research engineer and chemist, a cultured
gentleman, Mr. Glasgow is an honor to his profession and to Stevens and one of the out-
standing engineers of his time."
Dr. Weimar, Secretary of the Faculty, then introduced the Seniors. Dr. F. L. Sevenoak
called them one by one to the platform and presented each man with his diploma. The
degree of Mechanical Engineer was conferred by Mr. Walter Kidde, Chairman of the Board
Following the conferring of the degrees, the Seniors were addressed by Dr. Arthur G.
Glasgow. He condensed all he had to say into one comprehensive phrase: "Be Careful of
Your Time! Nothing really matters except how you invest your time. It is your sole capital,
it is startlingly limited, it cannot be replenished, nor may it be retained, see that you convert
your time into abiding securities. Avoid procrastination as you would the Devil and his
works. All things come to him who knows how to wait, whose patient and persistent effort
shapes the march of events towards his desired goalg who, in time of peace has prepared for
war, and knowing that the race is neither to the swift nor the battle to the strong. keeps on
running and never ceases to fightf,
The Valedictory address was given by Wilmer D. Relyea.
A short address hy Dr. Frank L. Sevenoak, Acting President, followed the Valedictory
The exercises came to a close when the Benediction was pronounced by the Venerable
Malcom A. Shipley.
Owing 'to the inclement weather, the President's Reception. scheduled to be held on the
lawn after the exercises, was held in the Castle. In spite of the fact that the weather made it
impossible to take the traditional group picture of the Trustees, Faculty, and Graduates,
everyone agreed that it was indeed the traditional "happiest of happy days."

ACLEAR, dry Saturday in May, and the Old Grads and New were assembling for the
Twentieth Annual Stevens Alumni Day. A cool breeze flayed the costumes and banners
with a cloud of dust, but not even Hoboken dust in their eyes could dim the ardor of the
Alumni and friends of Stevens.
The ceremonies of the day had begun at noon, with luncheon at the Lackawanna Dining
Room. Having thereby qualified, the returned Wanderers lined up for the Parade. The
Seventy-first Regiment Band kept them in step as they marched, led by the Grand Marshal,
"Cap" B. Franklin Hart, Jr., of the Class of '87. Some mishap had apparently overtaken
the praneing steed that was the admiration of the populace in other years, and "Cap" Hart
paraded afoot! The line of march entered the grounds by the South Gate at Sixth Street.
The Alumni, preceded by the Senior Class, marched around the track, and were reviewed by
Acting President Sevenoak from the east stand.
Stunts were omitted, flags being awarded for the attendance and costumes by Dr. Seven-
oak. The old "Alma Mater," unfamiliar to the undergraduates, was sung, and the judges
retired to select the best costumes. The costume flag was finally awarded to '13, whose mem-
bers were bedecked in a stunning creation of bright blue, half sectioned in canary yellow.
Other classes were garbed in costumes of distinction. '92 made an impression in caps and
gowns of red and gray, while '93 attended in high hats and Packards. '08 wore Japanese
hats and kimonos, and '09 followed in Dutch Boy suits. Each member of '10 carried a parasol
surmounted by a duck, but the victory went to the weather man, who produced a day as
dry as the great Arabian desert. '15 was garbed in white trousers and black and white
striped coats. '24 was celebrating May Day with a Maypole and trimmings, and ,25 sported
white "doughboy" suits. Certain masked individuals wearing flowing black ties and other
characteristic markings were recognized as '26.

Last of all came '27 in handsome outfits of red and yellow. They marched in reverse all
the way. R. D. Nelson, '27, lcd the entire gathering in a cheer.
After the ceremonies, came the baseball game with Rutgers. President-Elect Davis was
discovered in the stand after he had marched incognito with the Class of '01, Some of the
multitude strolled over to have another try at the O. D. T. A. A. golf links.
The stand and the Castle were decorated in red and gray, and flagpoles had been placed
at intervals around the track. During the game, the band played popular selections, and
members of '18 distributed wedding cake boxes which proved to contain animal crackers.
A supper was served at the Castle at six oiclock. Dancing began at the Gym at eight and
continued until midnight, when the day drew to a close with every Alumnus feeling that he
had used excellent judgment in choosing his College.

The Junior Promenade
FRIDAY evening, February 1, 1929, witnessed one of the best and most successful Junior
Promenades that has taken place at Stevens in many years. The decorations, which
were simple but most effective, were in decided contrast to the elaborate and gay decorative
scheme of the preceding year. The rotunda was decorated to represent a Japanese garden.
A square pillar about fourteen feet high, standing in the center of the rotunda, supported a
flat latticework. Green vines twined about this pillar and wove in and out between the lattice-
work, finally to drape artistically to the balcony. Japanese lanterns were hung from this
latticework and palms were grouped about the bottom of the column. Other latticework,
covered with vines, was placed around the walls of the rotunda and a trellis surrounded the
door of the conservatory, which was decorated with green and cream-colored streamers.
Departing from the usual custom. all the furniture was moved into the west room to form a
lounging room and a fire was built in the large fireplace. This lent a homelike atmosphere to
the place and the room proved to be very popular.
The peppy dance music furnished by one of Meyer Davis' well-known orchestras was a
revelation to all attending. One of the best received pieces of the evening was a medley of
Stevens songs set to dance tempo. Another distinctive feature of the evening was the
Shortly after midnight the strains of a mess call interrupted the dancing and a delightful
supper was served. When the appetites of the guests had been satisfied, dancing was resumed
with new vigor until the final strains of the last number had been lost in the rooms of the
Castle. The party came to a close with a feeling that the entire affair had been a huge success.

"May I cut this dance?"
"You certainly may."
"This affair is a knockout, isn't it?"
"Yes it is! The decorations are gorgeous and the music is so peppy. This Castle is a perfect
place to give a dance. Do they hold many here?,'
".l'll say they do! Last fall the Gear and Triangle Society started the season off with a
dance at the Castle. Following that dance, the Student Council threw one in honor of the
cross-country events. The peak of the social season was reached at the Junior Prom on
February lst. Everything went off well, and the dance lived up to my idea of a perfect dance
-nothing compares with it.
"Remember the Varsity Show last year at the Astor? Well, this year it was held in Hobo-
ken, and, of course, we danced at the Castle afterwards to the soothing strains of a fourteen-
"Besides these dances, we held one at the Gym after every basketball game except the
N. Y. U. game, and believe me they were smooth. That's not all. Each fraternity gives
several dances and all of them are good. The Interfraternity Council also gives a ball and
tea dance during the season."
"It sounds as though you have quite a social life here at Stevens."
"We have a good time going to the dances. This season has been the best yet.-Ah! the
music has stopped and here comes your partner. Thanks for the dance."

HERE are two events to which the student body turns out -100'Z7, .the exams and the
dinners, the difference being that the exams are something to remember while the dinners
are something to look forward to. Plans are usually under way months ahead of time, so one
has plenty of time to prepare for the financial shock of the ticket.
When the big night comes, and everyone has assembled in the Blue Room, or perhaps the
Rose Room, the fun begins. The food is served in infinitesimal quantities so, as the waiter
explained, one may see the design on the plates. Seine give up the ship and amuse themselves
with oyster cracker warfare. When the last drop of demi-demi tasse has vanished, the profs
feel duty bound to earn their dinner by springing a few jokes. They repeat their stock
speeches with the same nonchalance that they release the annualvjokes in class.
Of course, the listeners feel duty bound to laugh and applaud. liach prof feels happy and
decides not to shoot that quiz he had contemplated giving the ne-xt day. lncidentally, this
is one of the chief reasons for bringing them along, they fthe profsj won't have a chance to
lie awake all night thinking up some way to rook the boys.
After this flood is over, the real entertainment commences. Wild wenches wobble a wicked
waistline and countless comedians cut cute capers, while listeners laugh loud and long.
Anyway, everyone has a good time.
Soon the gathering splits up into small parties, who decide to explore the big. wicked city
while the evening is still young. The crowd disappears and another successfullbanquet is
brought to a close. E

June 20, 1928
HAVING comnpleted their two years' mathematics course, the Class of 1930, with the aid
of a very e cient committee, arranged the most successful cremation held at Stevens
in the last twenty-five years. These figures are quoted from a statement by no less an author-
ity than the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds. "Charlie" had flunked more than
fifty-three per cent., and the Class was out for blood.
On the eve of the cremation, two inspired Sophomores decided to give the Class of 1930
and the culprit "Charlie" a little publicity. Their work resulted in the transformation of two
grandstands into billboards denouncing the character of the bloodthirsty major.
Inspired by the patriotic inscriptions on the stands, such as "To Hell with Charlie," the
Class prepared a huge bonfire on top of which was to han the body of the Demon Calculus.
But being ever honorable and just, the members of tie Class agreed to give the fiend a
trial as follows:
Jud e: Order in the court.
Clei: Yourn Honor, on the 20th day of June, in the second year of the Class of 30's
resence in Mr. Snevets' GLOBIOUS Institution of Correction, is to be held the trial of Cal
Ifmss, accused with seduction, rape and murder of Miss Solph E. More.
CTO Judgej Cal wants a fair trial. He'll get it, won't he?
Judge: Yeah, he'll get it . . . in the neck. Produce the witnesses and other morons.
CTO Jur D Are all the honorable and biased Members of the Jury ready to give the accused a
fair triailand then condemn him to death by disintegration and volumetric expansion?
Jur : All set, Shoot!
P. Shari E. Guntta to the stand!
J ur : UILTY!
Jud,ge: Order, Order,-where do you think you are, in the P-Lab?
Charlie: Qdressed as Boy Scoutj Whatsa-matta-huh?
P. A.: Shut up, you bowlegged stiff, havenlt you been taught not to bray out of turn?
Charlie: Now, Yourn Honor .....
P. A.: Shut up, I say! You will now explain the meaning of your name.
.' ,iw I :I l '
Charlie: My last name has decreased without bounds and has approached zero. It is Hell.
P. A.: You needn't tell us that. We know it's Hell.
Charlie: My full name is Charlie Guntta Hell. I'm a maJa in the Boy Scouts. My an-
cestors were all people with brains.
P. A.: Too bad you were disinherited. By the way, do you know that if you were filled
with colored alcohol the P-Lab could use you as a thermometer?
Charlie: Thass-all right. They're all wet anyway. But I,m good to four places.
Judge: Now Charlie, tell us what you know about Cal Luss.
Charlie: Not a hell-uv-a lot. I'm professor at Snevets, see?
P. A.: See what?
Charlie: C for Charlie. If you forget that, I put my class numerals on your papers. My
class is zip, zi .
P. A.: On Sunday night, you were seen conducting a Wreck.
Charlie: Yourn Honor, it wasn't a wreck, it had three cylinders.
Judge: SHUT UP!
P. A.: In the back seat of this car, were seated Miss Soph E. More and this disintegrated,
differentiated, and rotated being called Cal Q. Luss. Miss Soph E. More in all her radiant
youth and innocence little knew that the next day these villains would take advantage of her
inexperience in figure and cause her to suffer a painful asymptotic death.
Tarzan: Prunes was there, too!
P. A.: Who said that? Cpointing to Waldiej Was it you?
Waldie: Heh., heh, now gentlemen, what was your object in bringing that up? I'm in no
wise connected with Cal. As a matter of fact, my knowledge concerning that subject is
P. A.: You LIE! One day while Miss Soph E. More was in your P-Lab you thought you
would pull a fast one by having Cal Luss sneak up from behind and get her unawares.
Jud e: Order, order! Mr. Prosecuting Attorney, one more wise-crack and you'll leave the
room.gYou will lose four points, too.
P. A.: Your Honor, I just said Cal Luss was going to sneak up from behind and take
Doc Pond: THAT,S ENOUGH FROM You! NEXT MAN READ THE QUESTION! MY Goo, YOU,RE
Judge: Hey, Guy! Where do you think you are? In Goimany? ,
Doe Pond: That reminds me of the time when I stopped at a beer garden. I had just come
back from a suit held against the DUPONT people now ......
Judge: A Cs for you! And if you say another word more you'll get a Cf. Guards, please
throw the Prosecuting Attorney out and get another to substitute for him.
P. A.: As my predecessor has just said, Cal Luss is a vile and degenerate imp. How-
ever, he was coached by such men as Guss C. Frigham, Lammy Sott, Saltpeter, Georgie
Vhy-mar, the big beer and pretzel man....Let us not spend precious time on them: have
Gussie go to the stand.
Jury: GUss1E? GUILTY!
Judge: Sit down, not yet. I'll tell you when to say guilty.
P. A.: Near the body of Miss Soph E. More was found a link.
Gussie: Was the link in motion?
P. A.: No., but we have good reasons to believe that it was connected to you.
Gussiei: I know nothing about links or motion. I took mechanical engineering at Suevets.
For that reason I am neither an engineer nor a good mechanic.
Judge: Say, Cussie, your mouth is open.
Gussie: I know, I opened it myself.

cosimeter and the IIOIIIIIIHIHIIIIZOII. will be all wet.
P. A.: The three of you are all wet, anyhow. So you may as well shut your traps. Ladies
and gentlemen, we will now have an ape, a foul monkey, a discontinuous function of elec-
tromotive endothermic syntheses take the witness chair.

Tarzan: Because I could not take it with me.

Tarzan: No, I'm a half wit.

P. A.: That's all right, but be careful you don't multiply. Do you know anything else?
I mean, do you know anything? Shut up! Sit down, you're too dumb to live. Guards, throw
this squarehead out.
Judge: Gentlemen of the Jury, you have heard the words of these morons and idiots-
members of the Faculty of Mr. Snevets' Institution of Correction. You have heard of the
hideous crimes committed by Cal Ijuss, you have heard of the manner in which he
tortured Miss Soph E. More and caused her death on the 28th of May. Tell us now what
the verdict is.
Jury: GUILTY AS I'IELLl
Judge: That is fine, you each deserve a ten on that one. As a closing exercise let us all sing
a .famous song entitled "Go to Hell, Charl E. Gunther, go to Hell!"

The Senior Inspection Trip
N November 12, 1928 A. Nl., the Class of 1929 embarked in the pursuit of knowledge and
to gain wisdom in the ways of the world. At 9:10, a barbarous attack was started and,
with one exception, all the coffee strainers and misplaced eyebrows were removed. It was a
cutting scene and some Seniors had a close shave. After a moving lunch, we arrived at
Reading and inspected the Berkshire Knitting Mills, makers of silk stockings. Samples were
obtained for the Hoboken co-eds. Monday night was spent at the American House in a dense
atmosphere of water, pillows, shoes, grips, and what have you. Tuesday, we visited the
Textile Machine Works where the machines for making the stockings are built. That after-
noon, we traveled to Pittsburgh, arriving for supper. Still in the pursuit of knowledge, the
Class adjourned to the Academy Burlesque, another way of the world. On Wednesday, we
boarded some double-ended busses. They resembled some of the Seniors as it was impossible
to tell which way they were going. Westinghouse proved a big attraction. Giant turbines and
generators filled the place and the plant spread out for miles. In the afternoon,we journeyed
to McKeesport. One Senior, travelworn, disrobed with the aid of his friends for comfort and
repose. At the National Tube Company, we observed the making of seamless steel pipe. The
immense scale of operation and the spectacular handling of the white-hot metal made that
plant one of great interest. ,ln the evening, some of the men went back to the Academy for a
second lesson. Thursday. the Colfax .Power Station was the center of attraction. It is the last
word in engineering. With its tremendous output of electrical power, it was a highlight of the
trip. Lunch was served in the Duquesne Church by the Ladies' Aid. lt was a real home meal
and food came in by the platterful. We held them to a tie for a while, but finally, still able to
chew, but unable to swallow, we left for the American Glass Works. The drawing of forty-
foot tubes of molten glass was a beautiful sight. That evening, we joined with the "Hair
Dressers of Pittsburgh" in a dance. Our Charlestownic Tcrpsichoreans gave exhibitions.
Friday, we answered the question, "Why're wires?" at the American Steel and Wire Com-
pany, and embarked for Altoona in the afternoon. We were greeted by a demonstration of
flares and fireworks donated to us by the Pennsylvania Railroad. That evening, after in-
specting our Headquarters, the Penn-Altoona, thirty members inspected the Altoona pen.
Our Political Electrician and Lawyer, Leonard, brought them safely back. Saturday morning,
the works of the Pennsylvania Railroad brought the trip to a close, and we took the train for
The success of the Senior lnspection Trip, the most valuable feature of the Senior year,
must be attributed to the careful planning and remarkable judgment of our friend and
leader, Professor Anderson.

Prep School Night
TIIE annual Prep Night was held on Friday, February 24, 1928, at which time over three
hundred men from secondary schools., both private and public, assembled at Stevens that
they might get a glimpse of their future Alma Mater before definitely enrolling. The visitors
were given much good advice, as well as exhibitions in phenomena of physics, supper at the
fraternity houses and at the Castle, and an opportunity to view the headliner of interclass
contests-the cane sprees.
Shortly after four o'cIock, the high-school men gathered in the auditorium, along with an
equal number of interested upperclassmen, where they were greeted by Dr. Sevenoak, who
officially welcomed the men to Stevens and explained to them that the principal doctrine
taught here is HOW to think, rather than WHAT to think. He also stressed the benefit of a
broad course in engineering, which fits a man for all branches of life, and permits him to
obtain a specialist's degree with but little post-graduate work.
Following Dr. Sevenoak's address of welcome, many interesting exhibitions of physical
phenomena were demonstrated by Dr. Hodge, who was assisted in his work by Professors
Stemple and Frank.
At this point, the would-be Freshmen were conducted, by willing upperclassmen, on a
tour of the grounds, inspecting the various buildings, shops, athletic fields, and divers points
of interest. The trip wound up with supper at the fraternity houses or at the Castle.
At seven o'clock, the program was resumed in the auditorium, with solos by Tracy, '28,
on the xylophone, and Miller, '29, on the piano. When the demand for more encores was
denied them, Dr. Pond, Dean of Freshmen, gave a short talk to the Prep men on the hard-
ships to be faced at Stevens. He warned them of the difficult task they faced, and advised
them to engage in at least one extra-curriculum activity while in College. W. Harrison, '28,
speaking for Gear and Triangle, took up the subject where Dr. Pond left off, saying that
every man is talented in some direction, and so is fitted for at least one College activity.
Following the speeches, everybody repaired to the gymnasium, where the feature of the
evening-the cane sprees-was held. After a short preliminary announcement by Professor
Salvatore, Referee, the bouts were started, the first one being won by R. H. Meystre, '31,
over J. S. Brosnan, '30, after an extra period. This was followed by another F rosh victory,
W. E. Taylor, '31, defeating C. J. Klein, '30, in a long battle, well over twenty minutes in
duration. This was the last long spree, none of the remaining taking more than four minutes.
N. Fraser, '30, and H. A. Somers, '30, were the only Sophomore winners, taking the stick
from I. D. Brandli and D. G. Grafllin, respectively, in two very fast fights. L. E. Yaeger,
A. 0. Gautesen and R. J. Randall, all Freshmen, threw W. E. Beline, J. Cyriacks, and W. P.
Durland in the remaining battles, giving the first-year men a five-two victory and the
privilege of smoking class pipes in their Sophomore year. -

The Student Council
N 1912, the Student Body appointed a Committee to investigate the feasibility of holding
an assembly once a week for the general discussion of student affairs and to encourage thc
spirit of co-operation. This Committee recommended a plan which involved the substitution
of the Honor Board by the Board of Representatives of the various activities. After careful
consideration by both the Faculty and the Student Body, it was decided that there be
organized the STUDENT COUNCIL, and that the Honor 'Board be retained.
The Council is composed of those members of the undergraduate body of Stevens who.
through their ability and achievement, have attained positions as leaders in the various
activities of student life. The duties of these men are to discuss and to act upon all questions
that may arise in regard to the relationships ofthe Faculty to the Student Bodyg to control
all student activities insofar as they inter-relate one with the other. With this membership,
the Council is well able to take its position as executive and legislative head of the Student
The Council meets every other Tuesday at Castle Stevens and elects or appoints Com-
mittees pertaining to student life.
lts value as a means of student self government is inestimableg it has steadily grown in
power and has met with favor from both students and faculty.

History of the Class of 1929
THE history of our Class-a Class of which we are justly proud-dates back to September
28, 1925, where, 147 strong, we entered the Old Stone Mill. That is, we assembled 147
strong to listen to our beloved Doctor Humphreys, but a few of our number were gifts of
Our history has been an illustrious one. Not only have we retained an unusually large
number of our original entrants, but we have done much for the college in extra-curricula
For the first seven weeks, during the days of our rushes with the Sophomores, we were
guided by Daniel A. Bennett as President and Stephen H. Harnett as Secretary. At the ex-
piration of this short term we elected our first regular officers. Charles E. Heintz became
President, G. Knight Wanamaker, Vice-President, Stephen H. Harnett, Secretary, Fred-
erick C. Gilman, Treasurerg and Frederic J. Meystre, Jr., Historian. Arthur Meinhold
represented us on the Athletic Council. Later, Charles V. Fenn succeeded Knight Wanamaker
Our Freshman rushes met with varying success. In a thrilling overtime Cage-Ball Rush
we lost by a single point Q2-D, but won a majority of the individual free-for-alls.
The Tug-of-War, too, we lost, but we regained our full prestige by becoming the third
class in the history of Stevens Tech to win the Flag Rush-the rush whereby the attacking
Freshmen attempt to dislodge a Sophomore hat on the top of a ten-foot greased pole, amply
surrounded by Sophomores. One of our number, however, hung on in spite of the desperate
tugs of the Sophs, and came down triumphantly. Later in the year, we also won the Cane
Our Freshman banquet, held at Keen's Chop House on March 23rd, proved, in the
opinion of Professor Salvatore, to be the finest on record. This was taken as very high praise,
for "Sal" was a past master at attending banquets while he was a member of the Faculty.
In June, during supplementary term, we enjoyed-
almost perfect weather, and got the most out of our
shop and surveying courses. l xl
Back again for what was reputed to be our hardest -n
year, we counted fewer faces. - XJ ' If fr :W
Tl1e class elections resulted in several re-elections. i yl r ' mm
Fenn and Heintz exchanged posts, the former win- ,
ning the Presidency, the latter becoming Vice- M HQ' -al
President. All of the other four, Harnett, Gilman, U--N :V -1-N-l'-'-fi . - 'Mig
Meystre and Meinhold, were re-elected to oflice. ul L w 9+ , F ",.. 'E i l
Although we won the most important of the rushes, , ' ll-'X' - ,, . , ' . f
the Cane Sprees, we were not so successful in the others, xml'

As far back as our Freshman year. we had representatives on the Varsity teams. Arthur
H. Meinhold. our chief athlete, is one of the finest sportsmen Stevens has ever produced, and
not merely because he will have won 8 Varsity letters by the time he graduates. Steve
Harnett and Sam Thaekaberry also won their Varsity Sis in their first year. Harnett has
since left college, but Thaekaberry is once more the regular third baseman.
As Freshmen we had not done conspicuously well in the interclass games, but in the
following year, 1929 shared with 1930 the honor of having their initials engraved on the
Walker Cup for supremacy in interclass competition. ,
Our Sophomore banquet was held at the MeAlpin and was featured by better talent than
is usually seen at similar affairs.
Activities continued to be well supported, and two more men from '29 made their letters
in basketball, while in the spring, four men won their S's in lacrosse. Wllereas the Class of ,28
had sent out only two men for the LINK, the competition among the men of '29 was such

that ten men were candidates for the cditorship. Six of these men ,formed the nucleus for the
Board during our Junior year.
Charles E. Heintz, Charles V. Fenn, Edward H. Brister and Elliot A. Hussey filled the first
four ofiicerships during our .lunior year, with the minor officers all being rc-elected to office.
We no longer had rushes in which to strive for glory, but we received much credit when
we lost only one man after the midterm examinations, and again in June we lost only one.
This is a scholastic record achieved by very few classes.
Once more our banquet was held at the Hotel McAlpin, and, while it fell short of our
stupendous Freshman affair, it was enjoyed immensely by all present.
Our reputation within and without the college was now Hrmly established. An unusually
large number of our men were on Varsity teams, many were supporters of the Dramatic and
Musical Clubs and the publications all flourished under our continued interest. Our edition
of the Annual was the first sell-out in over a decade, and copies of the LINK of 1928 can no
longer be purchased at any price.
Our Junior .Prom was the chief social event of the year, and was attended by one of the
largest gatherings that the old Castle has ever known. The decorative scheme was extremely
elaborate and was the source of much favorable comment.
Returning this fall with one of the largest Senior classes in many years, we began our last
year in the Old Stone Mill-our first under President Davis-with 109 present. We are one
of two classes to serve under three different college leaders, and will be the first to be grad-
uated by our new mentor. '
Arthur Meinhold succeeded Charles Fenn as Vice-President last September and Charles
Roede became Secretary in place of Brister. Fenn was awarded a place on the reconstructed
Athletic Council. The other three ofheers were re-elected.
One of the chief events of the year occurred on November 3, 1928, when Gear and Tri-
angle tapped nine Seniors, thus breaking a long-established precedent. These nine men
were among the most active men in the college.
We have had a rather colorful Senior year. Certain of our members were permitted to do
research work, others have found the time to make several important contributions to the
student government policies, including, especially, our representatives on the Student
Our Senior Banquet took place on Tuesday, April 16th, at the Hotel Astor. Several
prominent speakers were obtained for this occasion.
The eighteenth of June. with its consequent termination of the life that has grown so dear
to us, is now but few weeks off. Our thoughts become retrospective and not a little sentimen-
tal. For many, the past four years have been the happiest knowng the spirit of the Stevens
tradition has been firmly implanted in us. Hardships forgotten, with only the pleasant
memories to look back on, we go forth hoping to bring credit to our Alma Mater, until
"The years passing over, their changes shall bring,
And our sons in our stead for old Stevens shall sing,
And classmates together, each friend with his friend,
Shall then waken the echoes that centuries blend."

When I considered how my wits were spent
'Ere half my work on subjects dark was done,
I thought of pleasures far more fun
Than Louie-Stocky-thumbing Kent.
The air was filled with a sulphurous scent,
Dicky was dropped, and Andy begun,
And I left him for Louie-that son-of-a-gun.
Then away from Old Stevens I nearly went,
When I chanced to hear of the new adyent
Through the sickening clouds of color dun,
Of the rosy rays of a pristine sun.
It seemed as though there had been sent,
A MAN to enrich fair Stevens' name,
And add to her undying fame.

History of the Class of 1930
ELL, a Freshman once to Stevens came-in fact, one hundred and forty-three of them
--on that memorable September morn. 'Twas an admirable step, according to the
faculty, when we enlisted in the services of the Old Stone Mill for four years-more or less-
and climbed into the Red and Gray union-suits. But as soon as we found ourselves to be
targets of the professors and their numerous quizzes, 'we couldn't quite agree with the illus-
trious Board. Time, however, is Nature's ointment, though some of us got our feet stuck in
it, and we gradually adjusted ourselves, or became adjusted, to the technical routine of
lectures, quizzes, manual and manly arts, and the questionable term "study,"
We look back to the first two terms following our matriculation with nothing but pleasant
memories founded, under our Freshman caps by activities which, depressing at times in the
curriculum, were full of fun and interest outside of it. How much it means to the student to
have an interest in something that everyone isn't doing and which will perhaps broaden his
education, or in something which will benefit the college that is giving him his education and
Little did we know when we entered upon our M.E. course that we were to be the Ex-
perimental Class. It seems that since 1926 all the new ideas relating to college supervision
have been born and incubated. Weive even had the pleasure of a different President each
year. How strongly the memory of our President Humphreys recursg the awe in which we
listened to the address with which he opened his last year as Prexy of our Alma Mater
flashes forcibly across our minds, and we take a hasty glance at our fingernails which bit
excitably into the arms of the auditorium seats as we perched there in our Freshman glory.
Quite a few of the boys joined the Musical Clubs and enjoyed the concerts immensely.
It seemed to help greatly to relieve the strain due to the lack of interfreshman and interclass
acquaintanceship to get together at rehearsals and meetings and sing, joke and talk with
one another. The annual Varsity Show seemed to be a big drawing card, too, for many of the
chorus and some of the cast were boys of '30. Even with the work of the rehearsals, a good
time was had by all, as the saying goes, and the fellows have come back for more. It seems
as if, if memory serves correctly, we won an even number of our class rushes during the time
when the Sophs were able to dig up enough men to furnish the moral competition if not the
physical. Like all Freshmen, we, therefore, became egotists, and, like all egotists, we suc-
cumbed, in our case, at the Cane Sprees, which the Sophs won.
After learning how to carry around the various pieces of surveying apparatus and how to
find the shady spots with the telescope, we turned our thoughts to summer occupation, or
vacation, or-some of us-to summer school.
It's queer, but it seemed as though we had barely gotten over the exertion of turning our
'thoughts into different channels, than we had to collect them again and push them into the
feed-pipe of the second refining stage of the Mill. And memory sure serves to recall the pains
of that refining process. If we didn't go blind figuring decimal places to the fourteenth order
we went bugs buggerating P-lab galvanometers and lenses for hours on end. And if by

We climbed into the sleigh :mee more
chance they didn't get us, the "safety man," Demon Calculus, used the flying tackle Charlie
taught him, and nabbed us.
But for all the croaking, we came to know our Stevens better, and became more attached
to the permanent fixtures which make the Stevens campus. With our increased lto a very
certain extentl privileges, we began to get a little more out of the college activities and
associations than we could before. Friendships strong and warm were formed, many in the
close relations brought about by fraternities, others in the concentrated activity of some
Stute clubs or societies, and still others on the campus and in the classroom under the mutual
attraction of some special study or interest. Such bonds as were intertwined throughout the
class made '30 a strong and active unit, and when the old battering ram slid along our path
at midyears, the few that were lost were more like chips off a casting than grains from a bag.
as in our Freshman year. '
Things rolled along pretty well, though, and after upholding our rushing fame and our
reputation for support of activities, we celebrated the current state of affairs by a feast at
Gonfarone's Tavern in the Village. Guess now we'll have to qualify this and say "Greenwich
Village," in the light of our college town's recent inclination toward the Bohemian. Anyhow,
it was a huge success, and remained with us as a pleasant memory to cart around during the
vacation, which the powers decided to let some of us have after juggling precipitates and
Chem-lab pointers in one hand and T-squares and sketching boards in the other during a
seething Supp-term. So, with a fond farewell, for awhile to the Stute, such as we read about
in Grimmis "Ferry-tales of Engines and Engineers," which can be found in the library on
occasion at the "G" shelf 3.1416oF. to the east of the checkerboard, we waved a civil
engineeris goodby to River Street and the other refined sections of Hoboken, and departed
for parts unknown.
... ... ................ ..
E5 J l fl 3
Well, around September of '28, the fog began to clear and the good ship '30 tied up at the
docks near Meyer's in what is now "Hobohemia." But as the Movietone men lined up to get
the crew, what a disappointment! Only fifty-two per cent of the original enlistment put their
hands on the deck when the Junior trumpet sounded. '
Be that as it may, the remains of the '30 casting was more firmly bolted together than
ever, so with grim determination it faced Louie and his antics, and the newly appointed
Dean and his contrivances.
Quite a few things have happened during this year. When we entered the auditorium for
our third pre-grind address, we were confronted by some new additions to the faculty and
our newly appointed Prexy, Harvey N. Davis, physicist, engineer, educator and MAN. The
last qualification struck us forcibly as we listened to him, and during the year again and
again we have thought that the Board certainly secured the best for Stevens. The advent of
the new administration brought great changes, new ideas and' a different atmosphere. The
work of our year was bewildering enough, but when we were introduced to a new marking
system, unexpected courses, and unique "cutting" liberties, we began to get dizzy spells
which we found to be most easily overcome in the five-hour-a-day-off-and-on economies
arguments on Harvard's "confidential" matter.
In the last couple of months of '28, when things 'round Stute were still in a bit of a mix-up,
we witnessed one of the most distinguished gatherings ever assembled, and right in our own
college! All the educators, engineers, and men of consequence, besides some politicians, were
present to do honor to our new Prexy at his official installation. Those present will always
remember that occasion even if they forget the model of the first locomotive as it chugged
around the circular track in back of the gym.
Things did begin to arrange themselves in time, though, so by the end of the first term we
had developed the usual Junior "drafting come," which, by the way, are not the result of
long standing either, and the habitual "get-ready-read" affliction of the M.E. noise-house.
Of necessity, we acquired the ability to undress while in the act of running to gym from
lengthy experiments, on the strength of which we intend to take positions as members of the
local fire department during the summer.
Well, we have to mention the midyears. It's done-"and then there was one." Which is the
way we felt after the faculty had gone off on their semi-annual tear. But there were lots of us
left so we climbed into the sleigh once more and held tight until The Affair was pulled off-
oh, boy, 30's Junior Prom went over big. Visions will linger long and heartily--and they
continued to as we settled down in the sleigh till we reached Varsity Show night. More
memories, and more sleigh until the road leads us plump into a billboard, and the pages of
our own child, the LINK, turned over before us. And here the casting stirs its molecules to
radiate atomic energy in an ovation for the industrious LINK Board.
Not much time left before we become the exalted of Stevens, and petition the powers for a
sheepskin. One more sleigh to get aboard, after the ship of '30 arrives next September from
its summer training cruise, and it's all over. May the bolts of our casting be tightened up
for the next ride, '30, and here's looking at you.

B 9 TI, G V "ANDY"
THIS jovial, good-natured young man ortrayed
here has taken a great interest in baslietball in
his three years at Stevens. "Andy" was a candidate
for Assistant Manager in his Sophomore year and de-
spite the existing keen rivalry, he finally won out and
next year will be Manager of the Stute basketball
team. "Andy" has been our Treasurer for the past
two years and has made a good job of keeping the
"wolf,' from our door. "Andy ' has served the class ad-
mirably in directing the destiny of its basketball and
baseball teams in which capacity he dis layed the
ability that won him the Managershi of Basketball.
Almost every Saturday night when tlinere is a dance
around the Stute, "Andy"can be seen with some repre-
sentative of the so-called weaker sex from the wilds of
South Orange. "Andy's" good naturejust seems tohave
a magic effect on the profs, for thus far he has
breezed through everything without any differences
with our faculty.
l WILLIAM JOSEPH BAY
HATS off to our hero! The only man in the Junior
class who can talk back to "Louie" and make
him like it. Such is the reputation held b "Greek"
among his classmates. A more likeable and, congenial
person never came to Stevens. From the first day he
arrived at the Stute, "Greek" has been full of class
spirit and has represented the class in basketball,
football and base all. At present he is devoting all
his efforts to winning a position on the ball team and
we wish him success. "Greek" is a good example of
how hard it is to keep a good man down. Despite
many arguments with the profs, he is still very much
with us'and will be there when the final gon rings.
Besides having a way with the profs, "Greek" also
has a way with the so-called weaker sex as was
evidenced by the fair young thing he "dragged,' to

is being the only victory for the Freshmen, we were
able to avoid a white-washing through his efforts.
Walter has lots of class spirit and has twice repre-
sented the Juniors in lacrosse. It's too bad that
Stevens hasn't a gym team., for Walter has great
ability on the apparatus and makes most of the more
difficult gym tests look easy. He is one of our "old
faithfuls" when it comes to the social activities at the
Stute, and is always seen "dragging', to the basket-
ball games as well as the dances at the Castle and
gym. Despite the fact that Walter had a tough time
scholastically last year, he has come through with
flying colors this year and is to be congratulated for
his perseverance and nerve in overcoming these ob-
stac es. Walter ap ears to be quiet and mild of man-

reputation as a musician, which comes from the fact
that he blows a mean "sax" in the Stute dance
orchestra. Gervase is literally playing his way
through Stevens owing to the fact that he has an
orchestra of his own out in Port Washington which
nets him sufficient funds to practically pay his way
through Stevens. This is certainly a novel way to
work things and "G. M." deserves a lot of credit for
it. Gervase has represented the class several times in
soccer and is a great su orter of class functions,
especially the banquets. seems to keep all of his

GORDON GEORGE BOWEN
A T A, G V "GoRooN"
HAS anyone ever heard of a versatile engineer? In
another year, Stevens will send a scintillating
example forth from its portals to make his mark in
the world. The Stute's gift to democracy is the hand-
some and carefree young gentleman seen here. The
Class of '30 lost little time in recognizing Gordon's
potential qualities and honored him with the Class
residency. Being such a versatile ersonage, Gordon
went out for many extra-curricula activities. Both
the Stute and LINK claimed much of his time, not to
mention the many hours s ent every spring rehears-
ing for the Varsity Show. gordon spent so much time
on his activities that the faculty felt slighted and
asked him to dro a few. Thus it was that we lost our
Class President, but not before he had left his mark
in the progress of events. The nation-wide publicity
which 1930 achieved by its Calculus Cremation was
directly a result of Gordon's efforts to he frank with
HUBERT L. BOWNE
9 N E "BUS" "Hume"
WE have portrayed another lad who desired to
continue l1is work with the Class of '30, but it
seems as though the royal executioners did not agree
with him, so he has strayed from our fold and will,
most likely, continue his learning at some other in-
stitution. "Bus" directed a great deal of his energy
to the musical field, and whenever there was a party,
or an affair of any sort, he would be there with his
banjo, ready to entertain. At present, he is continu-
ing his banjo lessons, and do not be surprised if you
hear him announced as the "Wizard of the Strings,"
for he surely can twang a mean banjo. In spite of the
fact that he is no longer with us, he still attends our
social functions, traveling all the way from Yonkers,
"dragging" some very nice femmes, with whom the
stags are only too willing to dance.

IN his three years at college, "Bill" has taken a
very active part in Stute athletics. In his Fresh-
man year, he went out for basketball and made the
Varsity squad. Since then he has improved steadily
until this year he layed an important art in putting
Stevens in second? place in the intercollegiate stand-
ings. In the spring, we find "Bill'? on the ball field
where he is the Assistant Manager of the Stute nine.
Bill is a great supporter of all activities at Stevens and
is always to be seen when a dance is given at the gym
or the Castle. On account of his very friendly manner
and his congcniality, "Bill" has made friends of
every one around the Stute. He must have a drag
with the faculty because he always seems to keep his
name off any of the Dean's mortality lists. So far,
"Bill" has done a lot for Stevens and we hope he will
keep up the good record.
WILLIAM EMILE BROCKEL
A-LTHOUGH during his first two years at the
Stute, William experienced some difliculty with
his studies, he sur rised all of us at midyears this
year when, lo and Rrehold, his name stood on Dean
F urman's high scholarship list. He certainly deserves
much raise for his remarkable comeback after a
somewliat uncertain start. William doesn't spend
much time around the Stute when classes are over,
hence we really haven't gotten to know him very
well. Maybe he is in the clutches of the so-called
weaker sex-who knows? If so, we wish he would
"drag,' her to some of the games. Now that his
scholarship is on a firm basis, we hope that William
will find some time to devote to extra-curricula
activities here at the Stute. Come out for some activ-
ity, Brockel, as we'd like to know you better.

JOHN JOSEPH BROSNAN
ALTHOUGH small in stature, John is full of fight.
Anyone who plays "Irish" at the gym knows
how "Brosie" brings the big boys down to his own
size. "Bros" was our representative in the midget
class of the Freshman-Sophomore Cane Sprees, and
although outweighed and much shorter than his
opponent, he put up a spirited and plucky fight be-
fore hc finally ha the cane wrested from him.
"Brosie" has had many a set-to with the faculty dur-
ing his three years at Stevens but the fall always
finds him back again ready for more. He has outside
work that keeps him from engaging in extra-curricula
activities, but still he is full of Stevens spirit and is
always to be found at all class functions, especially
the banquets. This year "Bros" played on the Junior
basketball team and continued to op them against
the opponents just as he does in "Yrish." When the
time is ri e for a potent wise crack in "Louie" class,
"Bros" aiiways seems able to come through.
THOMAS PARTRIDGE BROWN, JR.
fb E K "TOM"
HAILING from the wilds of Long Island, most of
"Tom's" spare time is taken up in commuting,
with the result that he has little time to devote to
extra-curricula activities. However, Wednesday after-
noons find "Tom', busily en aged in the Stute office
where he is a candidate for tie Business Board. As a
member of the Junior Banquet Committee, "Tom"
did yeoman work toward making our first Hoboken
banquet a big success. The interclass s orts always
find "Tom" out there helpin to bring iionor to the
Class of '30, and he has earned his numerals in soccer.
Of late, "Tom" has spent most of his gym eriods on
the handball court, where he takes on aii comers.
Although very quiet and unassuming, "Tom" is of a
friendly nature and has lots of friends at the Stute.
PETER ALEXANDER CASTEL
B 9 II, G V "Pins"
DURING his three years at the Stute, "Pete" has
taken a great interest in extra-curricula activ-
ities. As Chairman of the Calculus Cremation Com-
mittee, he was instrumental in making our Crema-
tion the best in twenty-five years, this being the
opinion of none other than Acting-President Seven-
oak. "Pete" spends most of his afternoons at the
Stone Mill office, where, as Comics Editor, he was
responsible for all the wit that covered the pages of our
comics ma azine. When the spring rolls around, we
always fincI"Pete" working hard to make the Varsity
Show a success. For two years "Pete" has been in the
Show, once in the cast and once in the chorus. Un-
fortunately, last February he was forced to give up
his work here at Stevens and return to Argentina.
We have all missed "Pete's" friendly "hello" this
term as well as his always-to-be-laughed-at jokes,
and next February everyone will be happy to wel-
come "Pete" hack again to the Stute.
IF we were to list all of "Bill's" nicknames, there
wouldnit be any room left for a write-up., so the
number is confined to two.
If .Iohn Drinkwater wants to revive his play
"Abraham Lincoln" and is in search of a leading
character, we humbly suggest "Bill." He has one
great advantage in the fact that he would need very
little make-up if he were to permit his beard to grow
for a day or two. But there are other qualifications
which are nor Wnerely physical which seem to fit him
admirably for the part.
"Bill" is a very restless cha . Whenever he is going
any place, he is always readly at least a half hour
beforehand and impatient to go. It looks as if he will
have to change if he ever-CThe Editor would delete
thatb. Even now he can hardly wait for the tennis
court to dry out so that he can get going at his
favorite sport. In the meantime, he must content
himself with singing in the Glee Club and boosting

"FREDDY" came here a year too late to exercise
his extensive ability as a runner. During his high
school days, he gained quite a reputation as a miler.
This reputation was upheld by "Freddy" when he
took first place in the mile event of the intramural
track meet. Lacrosse has afforded him a chance to
display his speed and endurance and last year he
played attack on the Jayvee team. This year "Fred"
should find a place on the Varsity squad and al-
though the competition is keen, he has it in him to be
a star player. In interclass competition, "Fred', has
represented the class in footbal and lacrosse, win-
ning numerals in both sports. His speed was a big
factor in many a Junior victory when he was the
receiver of a long forward pass. "Fred" crowned his
running achievements this spring when he came in
third in the N. Y. Knights of Columbus mile.
Although he has had some difficulties with his studies,
"Freddy's" willingness to plug has overcome them

be readily recognized from the drawl and the
inclination towards doing no more work than he has
to. As a Freshman he made quite a record for himself,
especially in French. Radio aplparently occupied
enough of his time to be called is hobby. Circuits
could be found throughout his notes. When a lecture
got dull, he always fell back on drawing circuits as a
form of amusement. His downfall, however, was
caused by an inane desire to pun on any and every
subject. He came out for the Stone Mill, and even
that accom lished staff of humorists could not cure
him of the Habit. Tennis is his sport, and he has one
of the nastiest cuts on the ball that we ever hope to

BRUCE BARTON told us about "The Man No-

understands. In his So homore year, "Skiz" passed
the big three only to faql a victim of "Lizzie's ' logic
course. Outwardly, he doesn't appear to be a lady's
man, but if one notices the girls he brings to the
dances and looks at the pictures on his bureau, one is
laced in a uandary as to just what he really is.
gpeaking of dances, Eibe worked hard on the Prom
Committee and hel ed materially to make it the most
successful ever held, at the Stute.
Eibe spends all of his afternoons in s ring between
the LINK office and the athletic field. Hraiving been on
the lacrosse squad for two years, we expect to see
"Skiz" a regular on the team this year. Comin in
contact as he does with athletics, Eibe is qualified to
roduce the vivid descriptions of all the Stute ath-
liztic contests recorded in this Year Book. For the ast
two years, Eibe has been our Class Secretary andp has
represented the Class in both basketball and lacrosse.
Some of us who think we understand him find him to
be loyal and congenial--a real Stevens man.

'YOU'VE often read about the frigidity and thrift
of the New Englander, haven't you? Well, get to
know this fellow-and change your ideas. "Carl" is
the embodiment of good humor and generosity, and
though he was with us only half a year, every one
with whom he came into contact liked him.
"Carl" came, to us from M. I. T. after two years
there. He settled down to the routine at the Stute,
and repared to take Louie, Dickie, and P-Nuts over
the lgumps, but, unpre ared as he was in chemistry
and descript, he foundp the going not so good. The
Big Three were rough, tough, and nasty, and the first
term faculty actions found "Carl" on the outside
looking in. Interviews with the Dean did no ood,
and we were finally forced to bid "Carl" goodbye.
Sorry as we are to see him go, we can at least console t
ourselves with the thought that we have known one
mighty fine fellow.

HERMAN BRUCE DHONAU
THIS very serious-looking person comes all the
way from Patchogue, L. I. s a Freshman he was
foremost candidate for the Cham ion Commuter's
prize, which he certainly deservedz but then there
came along the famous Sophomore year, and "F arm-
er" decided to live in the attractive city of Hoboken.
The Gym department finds considerable difficulty in
putting this boy through his paces for the simple rea-
son that, due to his great weight and size, most of the
apparatus needs repairing after he is on it! Yes,
"Farmer" weighs well over 200 pounds, as anyone
who has tried to stop him in interclass football will
tell you. Dhonau has had slight variances of opinion
with the faculty at times, but his sincerity and single-
ness of urpose have been more than enough to win
the confidence of the majority of our dear professors.
It would indeed be a distinct surprise if "Farmer" l
should graduate any later than June, 1930.
LEWIS ARTHUR DORGAN
"RED" Dorgan is our big committeeman and
efficiency expert. Who ever heard of a com-
mittee without "Red"? And remember the old "60"
days when he just slipped past the "Big Three?"
We're betting he does it again this year.
"Red's,' favorite game is "Irish." To really appre-
ciate his art in this sport, you only have to play with
him once. Once, because if you're able to play after
that, it's not his fault. We cannot forget his long
memory, either. When it comes to telling jokes,
poems, or stories he has them all at his finger tips,
ut as for remembering "P-Nuts"-that's different.
Yes, sir, "Red,s" an all-around man and, besides,
one that has a way with the ladies, even if he will not
admit it. There might have been a rush or banquet
or some such, that "Red" missed, but if there was,
we weren't there to find it out.

B 6 II "BILLH
JUST in case any of you don't know "Bill" already,
I'll describe him. He is a little cha , almost six-
one or so, any day in the week, including Sundays.
Although he is a very serious-minded young man, he
always has a cheerful smile for everyone. As for his
manly features-just look at that picture, girls-
isn't he just too adorable?
"Bill' is often seen in the midst of interclass foot-
ball, basketball, and soccer games-either as player,
l manager, or both. Until recently, the faculty has
been hot on his trail, but this year he managed to
double back on the trail and the crafty faculty lost
the scent. He is out for lacrosse now, and those who
know him say that he wields a wicked wea on with
vim, vigor and vitality fapologies to somelbody-on
"Bill" was Circulation Manager of this LINK and
i did credit to a job that needs a good man.
NORBERT J. EICH
fb M A "BERT"
THERE seems to be something lacking in the
picture shown. A careful scrutiny reveals the fea-
tures and characteristics of the person whose name
is above, but the overall impression is not that of the
"Bert" that we know on the campus. There is a
deficiency somewhere. That's it! His pipe is missing.
To see "Bert" without his ipe is like having corned
beef without the cabbage. Vile actually think that the
thing which aroused "Prexy's" ire against the smoke
menace was "Bert's" high-speed, air-cooled, forced-
draft instrument of torture, and not the factory
chimneys at all. Someone has suggested that the
naval authorities got their idea for smoke screens
from "Bert's" pipe. Certainly, to see him moving
across the campus, enveloped in a cloud of smoke,
with a roll of Stone Mill exchanges under each arm,
which stick out like the guns of a battleship, he looks
like some sort of a war vessel. When "Bert" isn't up
in the Mill office burning up the keys on the type-
writer, he is usually up on the handball courts where
he makes the bounding utta-percha do some queer
antics. But that's not ai. "Bert" is also a Varsity
Show Manager and wields a lacrosse stick to boot.

THIS quiet-looking boy hails from Bayonne. If we
didn't know this, we might have guessed it, for
his hair always has the ap earance of just coming
from the oil city-or is it lgair groom? We haven't
learned to know him very well, because he doesn't
spend much time here at Stevens. We wonder why.
Is "Spike" a bookworm? Or better yet, a lady killer?
That must be the solution. His quiet manner, his
appearance of reserve, his immaculate ap earance
convince us he is one of the three Juniors giilied with
IT. And then, he can make a violin sit up and beg, or
preferably, pour soulful music out to the waiting ears
of the romiscuity of his audience. And so he goes
cheerfully along, blissfully past the perils of the 3,
and ever enjoying his drafting, where he roduces
work that makes us wish that we too, had, his sex
appeal, or whatever makes good machine designers.

FERNLY LEROY FULLER
SINCE his Freshman year this serious-looking chap
went out for lacrosse and spent uite some time
practicing. Not being very successfull in the athletic
side of Stevens, he decided to be a highbrow. Not an i
ordinary highbrow by any means, but one of the kind
that always thinks in terms of science and nothing
but science. He was one of the two who won the
Alfred Mayer Physics Prize. He has been at the
head of our class many times from the point of view
of marks. Now that "marks don't count,,' he has left
us--one of the few who leave this place a ainst the
will of the faculty. We hear he is coming Back next
year, and we sincerely hope he can make arrange-
ments to finish his course.
T0 write up this fellow in 150 words is like writing
the Constitution of the United States on a postage
stamp. If you would see "Ben" in his element, you
must see him going after a soccer ball. He seems to
be everywhere at once, and, when he makes a drive
for the goal, it usually goes through the posts. We
have yet to see "Ben" looking glum, even after a
Louie quiz. His life philosophy seems to be "bigger
and better whoopee' and he certainly lives up to it.
Whenever there is anything exciting going on,
whether it be a basketball game or a Ca culus
Cremation, you'll find him there. But don't get a
wrong impression. He can be serious when the occa-
sion arises. Beneath all the levity there is a depth of
character which all his friends admire. When ' Ben"
graduates, we wonder if he will return to Mexico and
Ent down the revolutions, or start a new one to make

"GIS" has been a highbrow ever since he entered
our midst some three years ago. His name is
always sure to be found on the Dean's List. The
Dean's List was made for just such men as "Gis."
He has activities galore. Freshman year we found him
out for baseball, and in Sophomore year out for
Assistant Manager. For three years, he has been on
the Stute Board and is now one of the Junior Editors.
The dope is that he will be holding down one of the
big jobs on the Board next year. Even the Varsity
Show proved interestin enough for him to venture
into the business end. 'lghe popularity which "Jack',
has obtained is no result of such minor things as
activities. No one who has known him has failed to
be im ressed by his wonderful personality. "Gia" is
a real gtevens man--all seven feet.

HAD Claude not come to Stevens, we would all
have heard of him nevertheless. There is no
doubt that if he were not spending his nights with
his books, he would be making a name for himself in
the musical circles of the world with his immortal
violin. The way that "Clem" handles the old bow is
just too bad for men like Fritz Kreisler. The Dean's
List, too, bears his name for Grady is one of the many
highbrows of which the Class of 1930 can boast. Even
our "Louie" can't work his charms on this gentleman.
And the way he has with the ladies-the good looks
go a long way, but scarce are the maidens who can
withstand the "Grady-smilei' and the personality
behind it. Nor can his classmates resist admiring such
a flawless character.

A T A, T B H "AL,'
"AL" is the man around the Stute who has taken
full advantage of tl1e new "cut" system so as
to keep up his many extra-curricula activities, and
who still manages to hold a place on the Dean's List.
During his first two years at Stevens, "Al" was a
correspondent for the Press Club and this year he is
its Assistant Manager. By means of this, he has done
admirable work in kee ing the name of Stevens be-
fore the public. Aside fiiom his literary work, "Al" is
also quite a sin er. For three years he has been a
member of the glee Club, and sings second bass in
the quartet that has several specialty numbers in the
Varsity Show. In the Engineering Society "Al" is
very active, and this year he is Vice-President of the
Senior branch of the Society. In this capacity, "AIM
has done yeoman work toward making the fort-
nightly smokers of the Society a great success. Hav-
ing spent his last three summers with the Wright
Aeroplane Company, "Al" is making a thorough
study of airplane motors, and he ex ects to do a lot
of research work on motors here at Stevens. He has
all the requisites of a successful engineer, and we
ex ect him to go a long way in the airplane motor
fieijd upon graduation.
IN the panel here we have "Charlie" Guar-r-r.
Well, his name is "Charlie," anyway. "Charlie"
is our idea of a conscientious engineer. When we
were studying gears he wasn't satisfied with a mere
ex lanation of an auto differential. He got hold of an
old, Ford rear end and proceeded to dissect it cotter
pin for cotter pin. When we took up the Ford
planetary transmission system, we suspect "Charlie"
investigated intimately the working of this mecha-
nism also. We wonder if he ever put it together again.
Now that we are considering valves and valve gears,
"Charlie" must be kept under observation in order
to keep him from dismantling the Corliss engine.
Rumor says that "Charlie" has a Hivver and that
the flivver has a heater in it so that his feet won't get
cold as they did on that trip to Lakehurst. Of course,
where there is a flivver, there is a front seat and where
there is a front seat, there is also--. We haven't seen
her yet, but we ex ect to at a game sometime, for
"Charlie" canit hold out on us forever and he always
comes to the games.

WIIEN "Steve" was forced to leave the Stute at
midyears, '30 lost a very loyal supporter
and a crack ball player. Being a born player, ' Steve"
made the team Freshman year and played a brilliant
game around the keystone sack. For three years
"Steve" played good ball for the Stute, and his loss
has been severely felt by the team. His athletic
ability was not limited to baseball, however, as he
played stellar basketball during the interclass games.
"Steve's" scholastic career at Stevens was unfor-
tunately a rocky one, and although he displayed
that same iight in his studies that he showed on the
diamond, the work proved to be more than "Steven
could handle. In' his three years at the Stute, t'Steve"
won a place in the hearts of everyone, and, although
he has gone, he certainly is not forgotten.

spends considerable time at the gym, where his
basketball talent has earned him a position on the

and next year we expect to see him on the ilarsity
squad. Although the faculty has tried hard to down
him, "Hulse" is back full of fight, and is displaying
that indomitable spirit that has made him a friend
of everyone. "Hulse" was the mainstay of the

something-either some six-foot Freshman in a class
rush, or an eight-inch sphere on the soccer field.
"Shorty" is an ardent soccer player, though, and
really doesn't stru gleg he 'ust seems to ordain, and
the ball obeys. And in the Cane Sprees he put up one
of the fiercest fights we have seen, finally losing after
a long, overtime contest.
Personality runs side 'by side with "Shorty's"
fighting spirit. We all knew who "Shorty" was from
the first week of school. Then he raised himself a
mustache and tried to fool us but we could all tell who
he was even behind the bushes. But he really endears
himself to us all by bringing beautiful damsels to all
our functions, a propensity for which he should be
highly raised. And he sings--he is a mainstay of the
musicaijclubs. "Shorty's" ready smile has won him
many friends at Stevens.

IT was a hot, sultry June day in 1926. The Prep men
were toiling mightily with a hideously diiiicult -
general math exam. Amidst sighs and shaking of
heads the exam books were collected. Frank was the
only man who retained his equanimity. And he has
done likewise in his three years at Stevens. No matter
how difficult the quiz, and whether or not he "hits
it," Frank refuses to weep over spilt milk, and then
prepares carefully for the next one. He was quite a
successful commuter during his Freshman year, but
he has since found it better to live in Hoboken during
the week. At Gym he puts his whole interest into
playing a fast game of Irish or soccer, as the season
may be. He must have a big appetite, for he never
misses a class dinner. It seems strange that he has
not gone out for more extra-curricula activities, for
his marks never seem to give him much trouble. But
don't worry! When a certain June day comes around
a year from now Frank Knorr will be right there to
get his sheepskin.

A T A "BOB"
"BOB" was one of the Juniors who realized that
the Class of 1930 needed advertisement and
consequently he helped considerably to redecorate
the grandstands with a few then current opinions of
our esteemed mathematics professor. This act was
typical of "Bob," he was always ready to join in any
fun around the Stute and had an indomitable spirit
that won him many friends at college. "Bob" dis-
layed this fine spirit while playing lacrosse when,
iiaving had two teeth knocked out in defending the
goal, he didn't want to quit. He spent three years on
the cheering team at the Stute, and nobody will deny
that his ardent appeals for team support produced
more and better cheering than has been heard in some
time at the basketball games. Aside from his athletic
ability, "Bob" was also a demon committeeman and
did admirable work toward furnishing the Class of
1930 with many a fine banquet. He just wasn't able
to reconcile himself to the fact that he must with-
draw from college, and we, his friends, hated to see
such a true and loyal Stevens man go.

FREDERICK GEORGE LAST
X 111 "FRED,, NFREDDIEQ,
"FRED', came to us with a tennis racket in his
hand and has held one ever since. Starting his
Sophomore year as a winner of the upper class tennis
tournament, he followed through with an excellent
season on the Varsity team, winning his major S, and
windin up the year by being elected Captain.
But don't think that "Freddie" is given exclusively
to tennis-far from it. He plays a mean game of
basketball as any of his opponents can tell you. Al-
ways hanging around the gym? Sure, but always
practicing something while up there.
An athlete? Yes., that's what we meant to say but
that isn't all. "Freddie" never leaves the gym right
after a basketball game. He is there as long as the
music lasts, just to give the fair sex a treat. We were
very sorry to see him go when the faculty tipped the
sliding-scale last February.
FRANK LAWRENCE LENTINI
FRANK is virtually the last of the "Us," Out of
seven promising Freshmen whose names begin
with L, Frank is one of the two remaining ones.
Despite this seeming jinx, Frank continues to work
around the rofs without much difliculty, and if he is
not careful line will be soon known as a "highbrow."
Frank is one of the old faithfuls whenever a good
joke or a wisecrack is desired and because of his
snappy comebacks, he has the profs floored. He
hasn t taken part in many activities around the Stute
but he has been a loyal su porter of all class func-
tions and helped materially toward making the
Calculus Cremation a success. His forte at Stevens
is Irish at which game he stars by sinking them from
all angles. It is too bad that Frank didn't try out for
the Musical Clubs, because he is a budding Paderew-
ski whenever a piano is involved.

a snappy retort to a professor and yet et away

that he has kept it up. Now he's Louie's boon com-
panion and playmate.
Don't judge from all this that Carl gpends all his
spare time riding profs-far from it. e plays the
banjo with the Musical Clubs, he worked on the
Stute Business Board and this last season he took to
fathering the sport of soccer at Stevens. Next year's
ambitious soccer schedule indicates with what great
success he labored. This certainly is quite a feather
in his cap, for when he went out for the position of
Manager, there was but little likelihood of the sport
surviving. It did-and now Carl is busy doing noth-
ing but waiting for next fall to roll around.

2 N, T B TI "MAC"
MCDOWELL is Joe Sperzel's dancing partner.
The scandal is that he had to raise the hirsute
adornment because otherwise "Joe" wouldn't dance
with him. "Mac" is such a quiet fellow that it is
mighty hard to find out much about him. But as a
matter of record, we do know that he plays a violin
in the Stevens Concert Orchestra and was a Varsity
Show chorus girl.
It was as a chorus girl that "Mac" learned the
basis of the dance routine that now gets so much
applause at the Musical Clubs concerts.
hough he may disclaim it, he has the reputation
of being somewhat of a highbrow, which, when all is
said and done, isn't such a bad reputation to carry
around with oneself.
But we just have to dish u some dirt and spoil the
illusion. Yes, it's true, he is fiom Brooklyn.

X fir, T B II, G V, "MAC" NJOHNNIEN
N a Freshman, "Mac" commuted to and from
Hoboken daily, tore down fine marks, played
some lacrosse, but hardly said a word. From all ap-
pearances, "Johnnie" was sort of a grind. Then came
ophomore year with "Mac" living in this perfect
little college town. A change in "Mac" was evident
as he began making himself heard as well as seen hy
his fellow classmates. Studies worried him to the
extent that he worked about an hour every night
whether he needed to or not. According to this boy,
all things were easy and probably will continue to be
throughout his days at the Stute.
If "Mac" continues his work on the lacrosse field,
he will undoubtedly obtain a berth on the Varsity
this season or at least a first string understudy's posi-
tion. The LINK also absorbs a part of this man's
time, which shows that literary work must also be
easy for him.
"Mac" is an exceptionally fine character and those
who have been fortunate enough to become ac-
quainted with him will never be able to forget him
and his habit of running around in zero weather with
his shirt sleeves rolled up.

WHEN we first went to work in Sammyis depart-

finished a cou le of plates before the rest of us mor-
tals had gone iialf through the first instruction sheet.
The whole class stared at him, and anybody Cexcept
a psychologistl who happened to look at our faces at
that moment could have divined the question in our
minds, "Who is that lucky chap?" It was not at all
an easy job to get hold of him and find out what his
name wasg he went home so soon after classes that
he didn't give us a chance.
Very often when we feel sleepy in classes and as
our wandering gaze strikes Marini's vest, we see a

QUITE right! l?Ie's a Deanis List man. There's
something about a highbrow that always identi-
fies him as such, and "Les" is no exception. He never
seems to get tired of socking all quizzes right on the
nose. But please do not think he is a grind. Far from
he went out for Assistant Manager of
lacrosse, and he just naturally stepped into that posi-
tion at the end of the year. Not only can he manage
athletics, but he possesses considerable athletic abil-
ity himself. He is tall, lean, and dark, and when he
starts to sprint around the track, there's not much
hope of ever catching up to him until he chooses to
stop. This year he is out for an Assistant Manager-
shi ofthe Varsity Show, and anyone as personable
as iie should by all means try for a part next year.

LEON HORTON MOORE, Jn.
F all the quiet people you ever saw, Leon is the
quietest. We suspect that underneath this robe
of silence there lie more than a few undeveloped
abilities in divers lines of endeavor. He has built up
commuting to a science, for we never yet have seen
him coming into class late. He has a habit of appear-
ing in the lecture room so unobtrusively that some
profs made the mistake of thinking him insignificant.
In a characteristic manner he gently but firmly
showed them their error. Nowadays, not even Louie
will question the fact that he is a highbrow. And for
that matter there never has been a Dean's List or
last year a Charlie List that did not include his name
in a high osition. When ym periods come around
Leon is alll over the handiall court at once, so his
opponents say. Class dinners and S. E. S. smokers
seem to attract him, but we wonder why a boy with
such abilities doesn't devote more time to extra-

that reminds us, it's just too bad he didn't enter
Snevets just about three or four years later, because
we're sure "Al" would come away with a raccoon
coat, a seven-room house, a Packard straight-eight
roadster, and several notes from his Alma Mater as a
result of the new sliding scaleof tuitions. Neverthe-
less, our young hero is not a grind. Nay! Nay! Hey!

EVERY morning we see this boy coming up River

e had been through the New York morning rush,
making his way to Stevens from Mount Vernon. He
always gets to classes on time, and is one of the few
who never kicks about the atrocities that some of the
professors commit. We think he has never used the
word "rook"' since he came to Stevens, and if we in-
quire a little about his scholastic records, we will find
a very good reason for it. His willingness to help one
and his ability to do it make it worth while to sit
It is too bad that he does not linger around the

ANDRES GERMAN OTERO
NOT quite three years ago, on a sunny September
morning, there strolled into Pruneis class of
Freshmen, a thin, elongated person who promptly
demonstrated that he could do anything with math.
In due season we discovered that the same applied to
physics, chemistry, shop-anything at all. And not
only does "Andy" comprehend his studies complete-
ly, but he has the happy faculty of being able, and,
moreover, is willing to make the rest of us under-
stand, too. His highbrow tendencies have added to
rather than decreased his popularity with his class-
mates. During the Freshman and Sophomore years
he strove with might and main to overcome the
difficulties of the English language. Having sur-
mounted them, he is now trying out for every extra-
curricula activity that he finds he can do. It is im-
possible to imagine anything but success for him in
his remaining years at Stevens. As for his future Olll-
side of college, one envies Venezuela for such a

"GTZ" is a big man around these parts. Among
other things, he's about six foot six and he's
next year's basketball Captain. Dame Rumor has it
that the big Swede never played the cage game be-
fore he came to Stevens. If that is true, "Otz" surely
must be a mighty apt pupil and a fine natural ath-
lete to learn to play the game as well as he has in
these three years. Now there are very few men that
can out-jump or out- lay "Otz,' at center.
"Otz" goes about his athletics in a sensible and
efficient way. No sooner does he quit basketball than
he hops right into his position on first base with the
Varsity baseball team.
And this big boy is one line fellow, too. He fi hts '
for Stevens on the athletic field and supports al? its i
activities as well, which, as many of us know, is quite
a trick. Whenever there is any test for school spirit I
devised, we feel sure "Otz', will score IOOQ.
WILLIAM JOHN PETERSEN
THERlC'S no question about it-"Pete" is an-
other one of these highbrows. It would be a
strange thing not to find him on the Dean's List.
"Bill" looked like good material for the lacrosse
squad when he was a Freshman, but, unfortunately,
his eyes went back on him, and he had to give it up.
The Sophomore year saw him an active member of
the Junior S. E. S., and this year he is out for the
Varsity Show. Handball seems to be second nature
to this boy. The way he goes after the ball is an
object lesson in speed and alertness.
When basketball and dance season rolls around,
"Pete's" always on hand, and he invariably "drags,"
As far as the well-known sheepskin is concerned,
there's simply no doubt about it. In June, 1930,
"Bill" is going to walk up and get it and no questions

GEORGE ALFRED P11-ILMAN
E N "GEORGE"
WIILIREVER you see "Lil', Planstrom around
the Stute, there you will find George. These two
are inseparable companions and a more congenial
pair could not be found. George put.to good use his
fine hysique, Freshman year, when he easily threw
his sophomore op onent in the annual Freshman-
Sophomore Cane giprees. During his first two years
here at Stevens, George was unable to participate to
any extent in athletics owing to scholastic difficulties.
This spring, however, George is out for lacrosse and,
although a newcomer at the game, he is developin
fast into a good defense man, and next year should
make the team. Last fall George captained the
Junior football team and was the big ground gainer
for the Class of '30. George and "Lil" are great sup-
porters of Stute functions and class functions and are
always to be seen in attendance together. George
deserves a lot of credit for the fine scholastic record
he is compiling this year after a somewhat rocky
start, and we feel sure that he will be on deck when
the sheepskins are given out.
JOHN TOIVO PLANSTROM
IT,S too bad that Stevens hasn't a track team, for
"Lil" is a born runner. This may be attributed
perhaps to his Finnish ancestry, that little country
which, as we all know, has developed such runners as
Nurmi and Ritola. "Lil" spends considerable time
on the track during gym periods and seems to be
able to run miles without tiring. However, when
interclass football comes around, "Lil" has a chance
to display his athletic ability in competition. For
three years he has represented the class in football
and has been death to potential end runs. Around
Stevens, we have a modern conce tion of Damon and
Pythias, namely Pihlman and Pianstrom. They are
inseparable companions and go as one to all ban-
quets, dances and basketball games. "Lil" has had a
few differences with the profs, but you can't keep a
good man down. His winnin smile and friendly
nature have made lots of friends for him at Stevens.

GEORGE joined us last September, and not be-
cause of lack of scholastic abilities either. It is
seldom that Louie, Dickie, Peanuts, etc., can fool
this boy. He has taken their measure quite com-
pletely. The first thing we knew he was a Junior
Editor on the Stute. The first issue of the Stone Mill
came around, and there he was on the Board. He had
no difliculty at all in getting a Varsity Show art, and
then we discovered him in the Musical Cliubs. At
dances he is often in evidence, generally not alone.
Then basketball came around and George stepped
forth, nattily garbed in fiannels and a white sweater
for the cheer leading. His ready wit makes his con-
versation refreshing, as he can always go you one
better in "wisecracks."
RAYMOND HARRISON RHEAUME

DURING his Freshman year, "Ray" commuted
from the faraway town of Stamford, Conn., and
was forced to spend most of his time on the trains.
Starting Sophomore year, "Ray" took up residence
in our quaint town of Hoboken and immediately
took a deep interest in extra-curricula activities.
Being a talented musician, "Ray" soon became the
pianist for the Musical Clubs and in this capacity has
entertained many an audience with his delicate
touch on the ivories. When the call for Sophomore
candidates for the LINK was issued, "Ray" put in an
appearance and before long had won the position of
Sophomore Editor. This year finds "Ray" Editor-in-
Chief of the LINK and to him we owe the success of
this book. A more congenial and hard-working Edi-
tor could not be found and because of these fine
attributes, "Ray" has commanded wonderful respect
and co-operation from his Board. Despite the large
amount of time that he ,devotes to his extra-curricula
activities, "Ray" is still able to keep a osition on
the Dean's List. He is a real all-around feHow and an
asset to his Alma Mater.

WILLIAM HENRY RICHTER
TIIIS debonair young man has been traveling
along with us in such a quiet, unassuming man-
ner that very few really know him. He never lets
studies bother him, and strangely enough, the
Faculty never seems to uestion whether he should
go on or not. He is intdeed good-natured, for no
matter how much quiz paper one borrows from him,
or how many pencil leads he is forced to distribute,
he always grins. In experimental work "Billy" shines.
He has the ability to organize materials and to
utilize time to the very best advantage. Maybe part
of his laboratory success in securin accurate data is
accomplished by a certain weJl-known under-
graduate science, but we think it is because of his
flair for experimentation.
When it comes to gym, he surely is a highbrow at
the apparatus. His evolutions on the arallel bars are
masterpieces. We sincerely wish "Billy" would take
interest in some extra-curricula activity. He would
reflect credit to himself and to Stevens. -
CHRISTIAN EDWARD ROSSEE
HER,E is an indefatigable commuter. In his Fresh-
man year, "Chris" came all the way from
Bogota and went back again every evening in a
Studebaker sedan. When the second year came
around he decided to try the Castle, and live at
college. There he won firm friends among his class-
mates. With the Junior year came a nice new Chev-
rolet, and "Chris" reverted to his old habits.
We recall "Chris" as a snappy United States
marshal in "Just Suppose." He was responsible in
good part, as a member of the committee, for the
success of our Junior Banquet.
As far as studies go, he has had no trouble at all,
and it looks as if he never will. The Faculty can
certainly have no basis for argument as to whether
"Chris" gets the diploma or not, one year hence.
FRED SCOTT RUTZ
E N "FRED"
TIIE man of many troubles! For three years he has
fought them. First he commuted from Stamford,
Conn., every day. Think of it! A man of pur ose
willin to undergo the vicissitudes of the New Yldrk,
New ilaven, and Hartford every day to have the
untold wealth of a Stevens education forced on him
in plenteous amounts. Forced? Possibly. But still,
first it was Charlie, Gussie and Speed, and now it is
the Junior big three, all out to sink this indomitable
man from Stamford. But stay! He did waver, for
after his first year of commuting, he started logic., and
the new process of ratiocination convinced him he
should live at Stevens. Hence, we are getting to see
more and more of him. Also, the Musical Clubs are
benefiting from the constant presence of his trusty
slide trombone-everready source of soulful music.
JEROME EDMOND SARTIRANA
CAN you, fair peruser of this saga, tell us why
some people persist in commuting from unheard-
of distances, year in and year out, even for as precious
a prize as a Stevens diploma? Most of us umbler
mortals get enough after one year of trains and sub-
ways, but "Sarty', seems to have superhuman en-
durance. And he comes from Jamaica. But commut-
ing didn't stog him from going out for baseball in his
Freshman an Sophomore years. As often as not, he
turns up with a nice new set of class numerals that
he has won at his favorite sport.
"Sarty" may have had an occasional difference of
o inion with the Faculty, but we don't think so.
1fJe's such a well-bred boy that the profs are afraid
that he would think them rude if they gave him less
than a good, comfortable grade. If we are lucky, we
may get our diploma just as soon as he does.

for more, and by the way things look this year the
victory goes to him. He is passionately fond of la-
crosse, and when he starts to play football the oppos-
ing side dives for cover. What possibilities he has for
Varsity work! It was no surprise to us when "Howie"
was made athletic representative for the class. He
was certainly the outstanding man for the job. A
good part of the success of our Junior Prom was due
to his labors. As to support of student activities.
"Howie" never misses a thing. Basketball, baseball.

doomed to a life of singing first bass, which, inci-

until the "Unholy Three" took him for the pro-
verbial buggy ride last term. But Otto is making a
strong comeback now not only to get back into the
good graces of the "administrative ofiicersn but also
to get back into the Glee Club and the Orchestra.
Otto is a fiddler and a ood one, too.
And while we're on tie subject, in spite of the fact

on his own power enjoying one of his favorite pas-
times-collecting bills for the Slum. That is sufficient
to stamp him an eflicient man. Just endeavor to
collect a bill in Bohemia yourself and you'll appre-
ciate the difficulties involved.

EDMOND PIERRE TAYLOR
9 E' "ED" "EPPIE"
"ED" is one of those rare chaps who always has a
good wisecrack on the tip of his tongue ready
to spring out at a moment's notice. In his Freshman
year he turned out for the Stone Mill and immediately
won a lace on the Board. The next year he was
elected Iffditor-in-Chief of the comic, in which posi-
tion he greatly improved the quality of the material
in that magazine.
If you hear a rattle and crash outside the "A"
building after school, you will know that the two
"lids," Smith and Taylor, are heading for Hillside in
their faithful flivver.
GORDON NUTTER THAYER
B 9 IT "G, N." "GORDON"
GORDON has spent his spare time for the last
year and a half with "Gus,' and his fellow task-
masters in the shops. ,lust a present from appendicitis
incurred during Freshman year.
During vacation he amuses himself working on
Television. Last summer he did it just to prove to
"The Major" how unim ortant math is anyway.
Cross-country gave gordon an op ortunity to
work off some extra avoirdupois. He didpenough run-
ning but the above-mentioned did not disappear from
the desired parts, as far as anyone could notice.
Then he took up photography for the LINK. That
has given him plenty of running to New York and
back. But who wouldn't if he were going to a studio
on the 'nth floor of some-thing-or-other Broadway.
If you like the photographic work in this book, just
glance up and say "well done."

X fb leNOEL,,
NOEL is one of our "strong silent men," except, of
course, when he is explaining some fine point to
a professor or showing the lab instructors how to run
the various engines. Then he is in his element. He
manages to get on that Dean's List, too, without any
apparent effort. That is something that most of us
who come to classes regularly must envy him for.
We wish he were able to ut more time on activ-
ities for he certainly has ability and might do much
for Stevens. As it is, we have evidences of his handi-
work throughout this book. As Art Editor, Noel has
supplied us with something a bit unusual and done it
extremely well. Weire roud to have him with us for
he gives promise of llieing one of Stevens' great
ROBERT LIVINGSTONE VANCE
THIS clean-cut young fellow is certainly one of the
most versatile men in the class. I-Ie entered
Stevens with a fine foundation of musical training,
which he promptly put to use as a ianist in the con-
cert orchestra. Since he became a linighbrow, he fur-
ther expanded his extra-curricula activities. As he
played the banjo, the Bango-Mandolin Club wel-
comed him with open arms. s if that much were not
enough, he developed a very pleasing voice. What
was our surprise and delight to discover him as lead-
ing lady in the Varsity Show! Perhaps, gentle reader,
you have noticed some hi hly original drawings in
this volume. Look closegyl Some of them are
We occasionally see him out on the lacrosse field,
and tennis is uite a hobby of his. We'll write no
more for lack oil space.

Z N "HARRY"
AMADEO PETER VANNINI
NEITHER Prunes, Gussie nor even Louie ever had
a chance with "Van" in the class. No matter
how original or well-timed a rof's humor may be,
"Van" always comes back with one just a little bet-
ter. And in spite of it, we don't remember that he has
ever been thrown out of class. Not withstanding his
seeming levity, there is no man more earnest over his
work, no man more dissatisfied with low grades. In
his Freshman and Sophomore years, "Van" was out
for baseball, and was on the squad. He has won his
numerals in interclass games several times. He is a
formidable op onent in Irish.
However, 'Hans' forte is social events. Whether
it's the Gear and Trian le dance, the Student Council
dance, S ring Sports dgay, Junior Prom, or anything
else at all: he is always there, and he always "drags"
We want to be right near to congratulate im
when he gets that well-earned diploma in June, 1930.
HARRY is one of those boys who come from that
long and beautiful stretch of land called Long
Island. "It's nice out there," says Harry, "But oh,
what a place to 'drag' from!" And so we have yet to
see him at the dances with one of the feminine sex.
He is, however, a faithful supporter of the Stute
teams and one may see him at almost any game.
Harry's athletic ability is evident in soccer and
handball. During gym classes, he is usually to be
found on the courts playing for all he's worth. At
soccer he excels, bein one of the mainstays on the
class soccer team and having won his numerals many
times for interclass games. When the
Varsity Soccer practice, Harry was up and at 'em.
He played on t e first team and had soccer been a
recognized sport he would probably be wearing his
Scholastically Harry has always been near the top
of the class and is a regular member of the Dean s
List. He is conscientious about his studies but is far
from being a " rind." A more leasing and likable
classmate woulcf be extremely digicult to find.

VICTOR L. VILECE
O N E "VIC'i
"VIC" is also one of those A-1 fellows who has
come to us from those who have gone on. In
spite of the difficulties which have beset him at every
turn, he has carried on with a smile, always trying
hard. Were it not for his scholastic troubles, "View
would, in all probability, be playing on the baseball
team with as much success as he had in his early
years at the Stute. When there is anything doing,
"Vic" is usually on deck. He can most always be
found in the gym playing Irish, for he knows most of
the tricks of the game, quite an accomplishment in
itself. If there is anyone who deserves credit and
whose efforts should be crowned with success. this
little fellow from Greenwich Village is "it."
WILLIAM PATRICK WALLACE
BROOKLYN has contributed her bit to Stevens
by sending "Bill" to Hoboken. Since his Fresh-
man year, "Willyum" has demonstrated his ability
to turn out clean-cut drawin s. Even the toll-taking
Soph year merely submerged this Junior for an in-
stant and in no way impeded his steady progress with
his class. With a clear slate behind him, it will take
more than a two-gun professor to prevent our hero
from receiving his sheepskin in 1930.
His general manner and his bullet-proof arguments
have stamped him as one worthy of the name
"Stevens Man." Although he is out for baseball, we
hope that "Bill" will come out and use some of his
umnistakable ability in some more athletic and
journalistic capacities. No one can deny the prowess
of this student in Stevens' most popular game, Irish.
More power to you, "Bill,"

SAMUEL Z. WEINER
ADIMINUTl.VE figure was seated in the corner
seat of the subway car. In one hand was an open
book,upon which his attention was concentrated. Not
even the vision of fair stenographers going to work
could arrest his studies. The train reached Hoboken
where he joined the rest of the Stevens commuters,
manfully trying to keep pace up River Street with his
longer-legged classmates. Such was Samuel Weiner,
Freshman. He now agrees that living at the Castle is
much wiser. "Sam', has the profs on pins and needles.
They usually inform him at warnings that he is in-
eligible, but so far, he has never had a condition since
the Freshman year.
His pet hobby is drawing and he is a master of the
dance. The Varsity Show could scarcely be complete
without him in the girls' chorus. As for social events,
he never "drags" the same partner twice. We're sus-
picious about those Friday and Saturday evenings in
Brooklyn. Come on, "Sammy,', wl1at's the secret?
HOWARD WINTH ER
9 ,E 'QHOVVIEH
"I-IUWIEH is one of those quiet chaps who never
has much to say but is always on hand when
there is work to be done. He has served faithfully for
three years on the Stone Mill Board and has done
much to keep the comic alive. So far he has been
successful in kee ing out of the Dean's clutches.
Whenever a class filnction of any sort takes place, one
will always find "Howie" present. His favorite ath-
letic sport is soccer, at which he won his numerals
laying with the class team last fall. We have found
but one thing lacking in "Howie" and that IS his
seeming lack of interest in the fair sex. As yet we
have never seen him "drag" to a dance or basketball
game. How come, "Howie?,'

WILFRED LOUIS ZIEGLER
PERHAPS it is true that oison comes in small
packages. We reply that diamonds do also. The
Class of 1930 found that it had received a very lively,
if infinitesimal, package in the shape of "PeeWee"
Ziegler. Whenever there's excitement of any kind to
be had, "Zig" is sure to be the vortex. He just dotes
on noise, much to the discomfiture of the Musical
Club Business Manager. For, in the midst of some
impressive number, "PceWee', can usually be found
backstage amusin himself and everyone else hugely.
But all joking aside, he is all there with his clarinet
when the orchestra is performing.
Among his indoor sports is Irish and he has de-
veloped a flair for track. But one of these days his big
boy friend Pihlman is liable to bump into him at gym
period, and then, good-by, "PeeWee."
His optimistic demeanor satisfies the Faculty that
he is getting alon without trouble in lessons, so
"Zig" will be one ofgus at Commencement, without a
particle of doubt.

DISCUSSION. After a memorable first year Cfor pictures and story please turn to page 167,
LINK of 1928i the Class of 1931, having become accustomed to its surroundings, looked
eagerly forward to the trials of the Sophomore year. On all sides were indications of newness.
A new Prexy, a foolproof grading system, fresh profs, and finally, a reorganized Hoboken
promised an interesting year. Latest calculations indicate that it has been in more than one
Tooner or later class supremacy had to be decided, so in order to show '32 that we meant
business, we rushed them off their feet in the first interclass contest of the year, the Cage-ball
Stampede. A single goal was all that was :necessary to win. The Frosh should have something
to say about the Tug-o-War, we haven't. 2
"The Supl: Class l:lICl'l'lISl'1l Irv -25"
gf- -N t f -.Vx
The class rush appears to be a tame affair when one considers the tremendous activity
of our demon profs. Sophs may come and Sophs may go but without doubt the Sweetheart
of Stevens causes most concern as he slowly disintegrates the class dozers with D's. As a
"free body" we battle with the Princes but to no avail, as every thrust is met with a counter-
charge, and every calculation with a "recalculate," .
Enough of the cause. Consider the effect. Soon after the opening of tl1e second term those
who had erred were requested to depart and the hundred odd So hs fwell?l remaining ad-
vanced with unsteady steps lest they meet the fate of the departedf May they jest in peace.
Try as they might, the Faculty could not dampen our spirits forever and we soon had
prepared a rousing banquet at the Hotel Brevoort. Unlike our previous get-together, each
prof present was requested to speak so that any kind word he said might later be held against
him. Needless to say, their jokes were very .feeble and open to criticism for days afterward.
Nevertheless, the good entertainment that followed sent everyone home in a happy mood.
Aside from beating the Frosh, panning the profs, and eating heartily, matters of little im-
portance to one interested in the welfare of Stevens, we have also worked hard for our future
Alma Mater. The activities which are at Stevens have received our most earnest efforts. The
teams, the publications, and the clubs reach out and take many of their members from within
Class teams, Varsity training camps, received tremendous support and rank as one of our
greatest achievements. The football team was forced to share first position with the Seniors
and Frosh, but both the soccer team and the swimming team came out on the top of the
heap, while our basketball representatives were forced to accept a second place after putting
up a hard fight.
Before we close, we wish to add our congratulations to the many that President Davis has
received on the fine work done for Stevens since becoming our Prexy.
CONCLUSION! This has been one awful year. Please make all of us Juniors.

lilllillliiitimllll llll i llll tlllllll The History of the Class of 1932
T was the twenty-fourth of September, 1928, when one hundred and fifty-one joyful but
timid Freshmen first set foot on the famous grounds of the "Old Stone Mill," to begin
that four or perhaps five year struggle to become embryo Mechanical Engineers. On this day,
Dr. Harvey Nathaniel Davis, another Freshman at Stevens this year, gave us a more or less
formal welcome in which he laid great stress on that maxim necessary for success at Stevens,
"Study every night." QBy t.he time the exams came around, many a Frosh wished he had
followed it.D And incidentally, it was at this time that we first set eyes on ".Prunes," "Doe,"
"Georgie," "Percy," and the other profs with whom we have since become better acquainted.
Under the leadership of President Carl E. Rodenburg, ably assisted by Vice-President
Warren F. Teigcler, Secretary James ll. Fraser, Treasurer Walter W. Schwab, and Athletic
Representative Henry Meinhold, we soon grasped the habits a11d customs of Stevens men
and it was only a matter of a few weeks before we had entered completely into the true
Stevens spirit as was shown by the large Frosh attendances at the dances and basketball
It was in the class rushes that we had our first opportunity to display our ability. The
Cage-ball Rush was an exciting affair from t.he start to the Hnish, the Sophs somehow or
other emerging the victors. .Both classes fought desperately, but our opponents, taking
advantage of their previous experience finally rallied and succeeded in pushing the ball
over our goal pos ts for the only tally of the game.
The Tug-o'-War, the next brawl between the 'two classes, also proved to be a thrilling
match. Anyone would be considered a fool, standing stripped to the waist while a hose was

played on him, the temperature hovering around the freezing point, and yet many a fellow,
usually a Soph, did that same thing that day. In this Rush, however, the Frosh, with the aid
of "Freshmen" Davis and Creese, emerged the victors by a score of 2 to 1. What followed
was as exciting as the Rush itself, some of the victorious '32's "making whoopee" with the
rope on Washington Streetg while the rest participated in some extremely interesting indi-
The Class of 1932 is also doing its share in supporting Varsity teams. There were nine
Frosh on the soccer squad last fall, the Varsity basketball team owed much of its success to a
F reshmang the Junior Varsity basketball team consisted of many F reshmeng the present
'tennis squad has the able support of several F reshmeng two important positions on the
Varsity baseball team will probably be held by Freshmeng and there is a large number work-
ing hard to make the grade in lacrosse.
In interclass athletics, the men of '32 are making a vain attempt to convince the upper-
classmen that Stevens has a worthy Freshman class this year. In football, eleven brave and
courageous Frosh tied the Sophs and Seniors for first place with two victories and one de-
feat. In soccer twelve more succeeded in finishing in second place with one victory and two
'tied games. In the cross-country run and in interclass basketball, the men of '32 also finished
fairly well. On the interclass swimming meet the Frosh exhibited their ability as natators by
finishing second to the strong Sophomore team. These efforts compose a record which any
Freshman class would be proud of.
So much for athletics. Fully recovered from the examination epidemic in January, which,
by the way, resulted in the loss of twenty-four of our number, we betook ourselves, on the
evening of February 27th to the Crystal Room of the Hotel Manger in New York, where an
exceedingly successful banquet was partaken of. We had the honor of having the presence
of such distinguished guests as President Davis, Vice-President Creese, Dean Furman,
Assistant Dean Wegle, as well as many of the professors of the Freshman class. The enter-
tainment was extremely satisfactory, the intimacy between our noble faculty and the
chorus girls affording every fellow many a good hearty laugh. The entire evening was so
enjoyable that we eagerly anticipate attending our remaining class banquets.
Our first year nearing completion, it will be a matter of only a few months before we cast
away the Freshman cap and don the more sophisticated Soph hat.
The road thus far has been rather difficult but enjoyable, and the obstacles surmounted
only make us more appreciative of our position. As a result we have grown to love Old
Stevens and actually look forward to spending three more years inside her gates.

Tau Beta Pi
TAU BETA PI was founded in June at Lehigh University by Professor Edward H.
Williams, Jr., a member of Phi Beta Kappa. This honorary fraternity in engineering
institutions corresponds to Phi Beta Kappa in arts colleges. It was organized "to encourage
and reward by recognition a high grade of scholarship." To be a member is the ambition of
every student entering a technical school. The New Jersey .Alpha Chapter was founded at
Stevens in 1896.
In December of every year the outstanding Junior with a high average for the first two
years and a group of Seniors are elected to membership. The election is followed shortly
after by a dinner and an initiation. To be a member a man must have a high scholastic stand-
ing for four years and be in the first quarter of his class. He must have a good moral character
and a congenial disposition. His leadership, activity in college life and personal appearance
are important factors in his election. The fraternity does not reward "selfish grinds." Tau
Beta Pi is among the first to recognize a student who will be successful after he graduates
The chapter at Stevens rewards scholarship every year by presenting the Higley Prize to
the Sophomore who has attained the highest average in mathematics. This reward is a
medal given in memory of the late Professor Higley, who was a professor of mathematics at

IQHODA a secret, honorary Senior Society, was founded in 1909, to act as mediator between
the students and the faculty, but it has since been supplanted in this respect by the
Student Council, which has assumed many of the duties formerly held by Khoda.
It serves now to reward those students who have devoted their time and efforts to the
service of their Alma Mater and to provide for them a common meeting place where matters
pertaining to the welfare of Stevens, and especially its activities, can be fully and frankly
discussed with a view of Obtaining improvement where it is considered necessary.
Although its activities are not so apparent, nevertheless, many new views have been
developed and ideas considered during discussions at meetings of Khoda and carried out
either through its members individually, or through their influence in other societies and
Each Freshman is interviewed by a member of Khoda at the Opening Of college in the fall
with the idea of advising him how he can best fit into the student life and activities.
Membership in this society is limited to twelve Seniors. The election from the Junior class
takes place toward the end of the supplementary term. The men elected are those who are
thought to have done the most for the welfare of Stevens and their class during their first
three years and who represent the various interests of student life at the Stute.

Pi Delta Epsilon
I DELTA EPSILON is a national collegiate journalistic fraternity which was founded in
1909 at Syracuse University. At present there are forty-three chapters in various colleges
and universities throughout the country, including the one at Stevens. The purpose of this
organization is to create an interest in journalism among the undergraduates and to promote
fellowship among those serving on the various college publications. The Stevens chapter is
composed of members of the four organizations: The Stuteg The LINK3 The Stone Millg and
the Stevens Press Club. A person who has served two years on one of these organizations and
holds a responsible position is eligible for membership. Most of the members, however, hold
executive positions On two publications.
The local chapter is one of the most active in the country. It holds several banquets a year
at which the new members are initiated Or other entertainment is provided. Besides this,
regular business meetings are held once a month. Every year Stevens sends one delegate to
the national conventiong in 1928, F. J. Meystre, Jr., was chosen. On returning he reported
that the Stevens' branch was more advanced and better organized than most of the other
chapters. When the sliding-scale plan in regard to tuition first was announced, Pi Delta
Epsilon offered a prize for the best essay on the plan-either for or against it. This helped to
stir up interest among the students and illustrates the kind of work Pi Delt does.
The organization holds a prominent position in the college life. Those connected with it are
leaders in their fields of endeavor and are among the most prominent men On campus.
Students strive just as hard to become Pi Delts as they do to obtain the other honors of the

CHARLES VAN ORDEN FENN ......... President
The Athletic Situation at Stevens
CHARLES VAN ORDEN FENN
THE athletic life of the college is, I believe, now on a healthy basis. The reorganization of
the Athletic Council is for the betterment of our athletics. The Association can now
administer more wisely and more effectively, having among its members the Captains and
Managers of the major s orts. This organization maps out the athletic program each year,
so that the members of tlhe Student Body may receive wholesome physical activities. This
is accomplished by a program which will permit the students to participate either in inter-
collegiate sports, such as aseball, basketball, lacrosse, tennis and soccer-the last being the
only minor sport at the Stute and recognized by the Council last fall-or in intramural
athletics where practically all sports are represented.
Undoubtedly, one of the prinei al purposes for recognizing soccer as a minor sport was
really an effort to fill in the gap leffg vacant by the abolition of football. However, no matter
how successful such an attempt may be, it will always fall short of its purpose, for nothing
can ever replace the greatest of American games-football. I sincerely hope that before many
more years have passed football will again have its prominent lace on the Stevens campus
and bring back that "Fight! Fight! Fight!" spirit which is now lacking to a certain extent.
Last winter, basketball had the best team and ex erienced the most successful season in
years. I feel that this success was due to the spirit of lhlard work, earnest effort and the will to
do that revailed among the players and tl1e coach. A true Stevens spirit was developed, and
if the otlier teams can in some way imbibe of this spirit, they too will undoubtedly experience
similar results. There was some criticism as to the teams scheduled and perhaps it was more
or less justified. There were those who thought that we should have layed better teams-
bctter in the sense of the team's reputation in the basketball world, but not in the type of
game played. In other words, it is rather foolish to play a college with a good team but
hardly known, whereas it would be of greater advantage to play an inferior team of some
Lacrosse is rapidly growing in popularity and is becoming one of the major sports in the
other colleges throughout the country. In the future, our teams will find even keener compe-
tition than they have yet encountered. However, with good coaching, good team work and
some of that Stevens "fight spirit," we ought, not only to hold our own place in lacrosse, but
also become one of the leading teams in the country.
Baseball as a sport is steadily improving and with a new coach still greater interest is being
manifested. With him on hand to demonstrate the finer oints of the game and to direct the
players individually, and with much earnestness and hard playing on the part of the players,
the season should prove to be one of the most successful in recent years. Fall baseball prac-
tice did much to enable the coach to get a line on his candidates.
The tennis situation appears to be rather acute this season. Although the team had an-
other of its usually successful seasons last year, there remained but one Varsity player as a
nucleus for this year. Nevertheless, players possessed with a fighting spirit, some natural
ability and a knowledge of the fundamentals can be readily whipped into shape in sufficient
time to tackle their somewhat difficult schedule.
The sports enumerated above, together with our intramural activities, represent an
interest in our college life which is too real and vivid to disa pear. Ceaseless arguments there
might be for the abolition of certain of our present sports, but in this connection we should
not forget the clean thrill of true s ortsmanshipg the superior physical endeavorg the
healthy rivalryg the esprit de corps andpall these things which we prize too dearly to easily

COACH SIM CAPTAIN MICINIIOLD MANAGER ll0l'1lDl'l
The Basketball Season of 1928-1929
SECOND place in intercollegiate rating! This was thc enviable record achieved by the Stevens
team, for they were preceded only by Fordham, who was defeated by N. Y. U., the same
team which stopped the Stute from having a perfect record.
The schedule, while it could not be called exceptionally hard, nevertheless furnished much
stiff opposition. Stevens in nearly every game showed a well-balanced offense, piercing the
opposition's defense readily and winning easily.
Coach Sim's style of play more than weathered the season. It proved itself to be highly
successful, as well as spectacular. Requiring the utmost of every player's individual ability,
it also necessitated perfect co-ordination and team work.
The coach's material consisted of two letter men and six Varsity squad men from the
previous year. Witli these he put on the floor the best Stevens five of all times! To try to
name the starring players would be difficult, for the style of basketball played required each
man to function as part of a unit, to do his part, to be ready at the proper moment. Every
man playing knew this. as he also knew that there was a substitute as good as he waiting on
the bench ready to take his place.
In reviewing the season, it suffices to say that Coach Sim's style of play is impeccable, that
every man on the squad had the goods, and that the 0.93 rating which the team achieved
was criterional of the successful season.
N. Y. U. Game
N. Y. U., 26 STEVENS, 13
STEVENS lost for the first time this season in a fast, well-played game. N. Y. U., playing
her second game of the season, had a very strong team, mostly made up of veteran
men. They were in top form and seemed to be fresher and to have more punch than the
The game was featured by remarkable defensive work by both teams. For seven minutes,
neither team scored. Stevens, holding the ball nearly all of this time, was unable to pierce
the excellent secondary defensive work of the visiting team, while when N. Y. U. had the
ball they quickly lost it, due to the aggressive play of the Stute team. But two field goals
were scored by each of the teams during the whole of the first half, showing how close the
game was at this stage. Persson opened the scoring with a short shot, only to have Conroy
counter with a similar basket. Thackaberry then put Stevens in the lead with a basket, but
Conroy again evened the score, this time with a long shot. This concluded the scoring from
the floor for the first half, N. Y. U. scoring three fouls to put them in the lead, 7 to 4, at half
At the start of the second half it appeared as though the game were to be very close, but
Stevens tired, and the game became all N. Y. U., as far as scoring went. Stevens fought
gallantly, but was unable to sink a ball. The final score, 26 to 13, does not at all indicate the
fierceness of the struggle, or the relative abilities ofthe two teams. The game was exceedingly
fast and the pace seemed to tell more on the Stute men than on the N. Y. U. men, who had
just opened their season.
The great weakness of the home team was very apparent in
this game. But 3 of the 13 free tries were scored, whereas most
of them should have been made. The extreme nervousness of
the men, due to the fact that they were playing their first big
game of the season, is probably accountable for this poor
exhibition from the foul line.
There were no outstanding players for Stevens, three men
scoring 111 points each, while all of the Stute men played an
excellent defensive game.

UNION, 20 STEVENS, 23
TEVENS defeated Union 23 to 20 in one of the fastest and hardest games ever played on
the Stevens court on Saturday evening, the twelfth of January. The game was thrilling
throughout, and was anybodyis game till the final whistle, when the three point margin of
Stevens was enough to give them the victory, the most difiicult to obtain of all those of the
Stevens commenced the fierce fighting at the outset of the game, and found Union more
than willing to meet them halfway, with the result that the goodly crowd of spectators was
kept on the edge for the entire hour with the sparkling play and the frequent collisions.
Due to the amount of roughness in the game, many fouls were called, which gave Stevens
an opportunity to show how they had improved their technique in throwing the ball from the
foul line. They showed their ability by scoring consistently with their free throws. Points
scored in this manner proved to be the deciding factor in the game, as Stevens sank five more
fouls than Union, whereas Union had a margin of two points from the floor.
Persson was the high scorer for Stevens, with two field goals and five fouls for a total of
nine points chalked up to his credit. Livingstone of Union, gave the onlookers many thrills
by dropping in long shots from all sorts of remote places on the floor, on many occasions
spoiling a Stute lead by a timely shot.
The outstanding feature of the game was the wonderful defensive work of Brister, who
frequently stopped a Union offensive or dove and retrieved a free-rolling ball. The first half
ended with the score tied at 10 to 10, indicating the closeness of the game. Livingstone was
injured in this half in one of the many collisions and had to be
removed from theline-up. He returned at the startofthe second
half, however, and started a long range attack on the Stute T
basket. Despite these disheartening shots, Stevens was not to
be downed, and with Thackaberry con trolling the tap nicely,
successive tallies by Fenn, Brister and Meinhold again put
Stevens in the lead. This was 'Brister's first appearance as a
scoring ace, he being second to Persson in scoring for Stevens
with five points.
In all, the game was the greatest exhibition of fighting,
speedy basketball of the year.

AMHERST, 14 STEVENS, 39
N'TER making a successful -trip during the midyear vacation, the Stute men appeared on
their home court on February 9th, to face the Amherst five, which in the previous year
had defeated Stevens with 31 points against 20. This year the tables had turned, last year's
high scorer for the opposition being held to one goal, while none of the opponents were able
to run up more than four points. Stevens, on the other hand, ran wild with the scoring,
Persson alone making nearly enough to defeat Amherst. The two Meinhold brothers nearly
turned the game into a riot by consistently dropping the ball in from the middle of the floor.
The game belonged to the Stute from the first whistle, Persson starting the scoring in the
first minute. Amherst succeeded in retrieving the ball on bad shots but was unable to get in
close enough because of the effective way in which the Stute men guarded them. Brister,
who still had his shoulder in braces after the game at Providence, fought hard, holding his
man scoreless. Fcnn, playing by his side, was equally successful in holding out the Amherst
forwards. The fast and effective means which the Stute men used in carrying the ball down
the court were particularly responsible for the one-sided score.
The spectacular means of obtaining the ball in the jump proved to work time after time.
It was typical of the manner in which the team did things. Meinhold would dash to the
center on the whistle and receive the ball on the tap. The timing was so nearly perfect that
in some cases "Meiny" would receive the ball in mid-air and tap it to the guard before the
sound of the whistle had died away. The second half found Amherst rallying to overcome the
sixteen-point lead but the task was too great. Coach Sim put in substitutes as reliable as the
regulars. Any one of the many spectators present long will re-
member the exhibition staged by the Meinhold brothers that
night. Shots consistently dropping in from all angles without
more sound than the swish of the net. "Arty" worked hard
to keep a one-point lead over his brother who did some

HAVERFORD, 16 STEVENS, 35
STEVENS maintained her brilliant winning streak by thoroughly subduing Haverford on
February 26th, by a score of 35 to 16. It was the final game of the season, and while the
excellent playing of the Stute team was about the best of the season., the Haverford team,
although they were game and full of the fighting spirit, did not offer enough opposition for
this game to be a fitting climax for the remarkable record of twelve victories to one defeat
which the Stevens men had established. However, the game will be remembered as the last
in which Hve loyal men represented Stevens on a basketball court. It was the last game of
Captain A. Meinhold, Edward Brister, Charles Fenn, Sam Thackaberry and Elliot Hussey.
For four years, Meinhold had played Varsity basketball for the Stute, and his true sportsman-
ship, his fighting spirit and his loyalty have won him a warm place in the hearts of all
Stevens men. Brister played remarkable basketball, being a veritable defense in himself,
certainly earning a rating as one of Stevens greatest players. Fenn, Thackaberry and Hussey
played consistently good basketball all year, at all times co-ordinating with the other
players and giving all they had for the team.
The scoring was slow at the start of the game, but the Red and Gray players were not to
be held down and Captain Meinhold soon broke the ice with a successful free throw.
Haverford retaliated with a two pointer, but Meinhold put Stevens again in the lead, this
time with a field goal. Haverford scored two on a long shot by Mawhinny but Meinhold
again put Stevens in the lead with a foul and a basket. At this point Fenn entered the scoring
rank with a basket, starting Stevens on to a formidable lead from which she was never
headed. The Stute now started on a long range scoring spree,
Meinhold and Persson doing the shooting. H. Meinhold now
entered the game and thrilled the spectators by sinking
three spectacular shots in rapid succession. Haverford scored
again, and the half ended with Stevens on the long end of an
18 to 8 score. .
Refreshed by the rest period, both teams came back with a
rush in the second half. Each team scored five points in jig
time after which Haverford seemed to tire. Here Stevens
started to increase her lead, and toward the end of the game
it was merely a question of how overwhelmingly Haverford
The outstanding feature of the game was the remarkable
exhibition of good throwing put up by the Meinhold brothers,
each of whom got four baskets.

RENSSELAER, 28 STEVENS, 36
ON January 16th, while the rest of the college was studying hard for the "first exams,"
Coach Sim and Manager Roede were traveling northward to Troy with several of the
regulars to duplicate the Stute's showing of the previous year when they defeated R. P. I.,
46 to 30. Thus far, the Stute team had received but one defeat and that at the hands of a
strong N. Y. U. five. The cherry and white contingent representing Rensselaer on the other
hand had broken even with three victories and three defeats.
The match was a game of thrills from the beginning of the opening whistle to the closing
of the gun. Persson, at center, overreached his whiteshirted opponent and hurled the ball
into the hands of Captain Meinhold. Scoring was well nigh impossible, for the R. P. I. guards
were versed in the ways of the Stute attack, and held the forwards to long shots which in-
variably delivered the ball to the opponents. But the R. P. I. forwards found it equally
difficult to slide by the defense and for nearly a quarter, the ball traveled from one of the
court to the other with no score. Kennedy at guard for R. P. I. finally sent the spectators in
an uproar when he popped the ball in from thc center of the court. The defense seemed to
have weakened, for the Rensselaer squad assumed a nine-point lead before the Stute men
broke into scoring. The half ended with the Troy players still in the lead by nine points.
With the opening of the second half, prospects seemed to take a brighter turn for the
Stute men. "Whimp" Meinhold went in at forward just to try a few long shots and even up
the tally on the score board if for no other reason than the effect upon his teammen. The
result was that the Stute ran wild and played havoc with the score. For every shot "Whimp"
dropped through the ring, his big brother, Captain Meinhold,
would retaliate with another. The style of attack used in over-
coming the Rensselaer team called for fast and continuous
cutting and shifting by every man. Fenn fought continuously
to keep the ball in play and to hold the forwards as they tried
in vain to score, while Brister, the other Red and Gray guard
fighting by his side, was successful in accounting for part of
the thirty-six points scored by Stevens.

INSTEAD of the usual Southern trip, the Stevens basketball squad took advantage of the
spare time after the examinations to invade New England. Three games were played and
all were eminently successful from the Stevens, standpoint of view. While but one of the
teams encountered represented a college, all were worthy opponents and the Stute five had
no easy time in defeating them despite the fact that the Red and Gray five played excellent
basketball. Nine men beside the Coach and Manager made the trip, and from all reports the
games were not the only successful part of the trip, for a very good time was had by all.
The first game was with the U. S. Naval Training Station at Newport. Stevens won by
one point, with one overtime period. This contest vied with the Union game as the most
interesting of the season. The Training School was ahead by one point with less than a
minute to go when Hussey sank a foul to tie the score. In the extra period, Stevens ran up
a four-point lead which the Training School nearly overcame. The game ended with Stevens
on the long end of the 45 to 44 score.
On the following evening, the Stevens team played the New London Coast Guard in a
harder-fought game than on the previous night, although the score was not so close. Relying
on a five-man defense, a rather unusual defense for an eastern basketball team, the Coast
Guard had little trouble in keeping Stevens from scoring during most of the game. Wendland
of the Guards opened the scoring and soon Stevens was trailing by seven points. At the end
of the first half, Stevens was still six behind. The second half opened, and the score remained
about the same, until, with but a few minutes to go, the Stute players found the secret of
piercing the set defensive of the R. P. T. men and quickly sank five baskets and won by a
score of 37 to 31.
On Saturday, the Stute men journeyed to Amherst to play
the Massachusetts Agricultural College. The game here was
slow and dull, due to the fact that the Stevens men were tiring
from the strain of the trip. Stevens assumed an immediate
lead but the Aggies overcame it, and led by one point at the
half time. The scoring was slow and even throughout the game,
Stevens finally winning by two points, with the score at 13
to 11. The game was not as close as the score would indicate,
the Stute having little trouble in handling her opponents.

COACH Sim's 1928-1929 quintet made its debut on December 8, 1928, when they met and
easily defeated Cathedral College by a score of 38 to 16. The Stute basketeers played
a good game characterized by good passing and guarding. The Cathedral men had won five
games previous to this one and were greatly taken back with the onslaught of the Stute
attack. Brister, at guard, showed up famously in breaking u the opponents' play under the
basket. At half time, the Stute was eleven points in the leadi. The second half proved to be
entirely one sided. The Red and Gray forwards were able to run things about as they pleased.
The second game of the season did not prove to be as much of a walkaway as the first.
The Brooklyn Poly team which came to Castle Point on December 15th knew enough of
Coach Sim's methods of attack to cramp the Stute five's style. Persson was outjumped at
center on nearly every occasion, while Meinhold was held down to six oints by Captain
Perez of Brooklyn, who guarded l1im very closely. In spite of these obstacles the btute
managed to keep well in the lead, Persson and Thackaberry drop ing the ball in most beau-
tifully on short cuts and fast passes from their teammates. With but ten minutes remaining
to play, the score stood 25 to 14. Brooklyn took time out after which they launched a final
desperate attempt to even the game. Shot after shot was made good by the visitors until
the score stood 25-24 in favor of the Stute, and thus it remained until the closing un.
The game with Newark Tech on January 19th, gave many subs and J. V. men a cfnance to
show their ability. The game was played at Newark but the Stute men present probably
outnumbered the home team's supporters. The Stute did not venture into the opponents'
territory with the ball until the game was well under way. The first few minutes of the game
was characterized by some very beautiful pass work which seemed to net the team but little
other than foul shots, nearly all of which were made good. Townsend, Ca tain of the Newark
five, took two long and rather awkward shots from the center of the Eoor, both of which
were good, giving Newark her only score for the first half. The Stute mcn, meanwhile, were
dropping the ball in at regular intervals between tl1e tap-offs. When the game was two-thirds
over, the Varsity left the floor
for the locker rooms and a
Freshmen squad wcnt in and
kept up the scoring, although
the opponents made ten more
points bringing tl1e closing score
to 42 to 15.
The Alumni game on Feb-
ruary 16tl1, proved an easy
victory, substitutes playing
the entire first half against a
group of mediocre stars worn
dull by the worries of the
engineering world. The second
half found the Varsity playing
against last yearis Varsity and
showing up well under the fire
of their former teammates.

The Basketball Team--A Tribute
ON March 16, 1929, the Student Council and the Gear and Triangle Society sponsored a
dance in honor of the members of the 1928-1929 basketball team. This Occasion-quite
unique in the annals of our college-was not in its essence entirely a social affair, but it was a
striking demonstration of at least some of the good that interest in athletics can bring
socially, athletically and academically. It was primarily the awarding Of the gold basketballs
-the symbols of esteem and admiration Of their fellow students-to those splendid ex-
emplars of what is best in modern college sports to-dayg to those youths who have built up
a code Of sportsmanship that will keep Our sports clean and wholesome for years to come.
Whether it was in the heat of combat, the flush of victory, Or the sting of defeat, Stevens
Tech was extremely fortunate, for her colors were carried with gallantry whenever she was
represented by "Charlie" Fenn--a loyal Stevens man who never quitsg by "Wuz" Hussey-
who never whimpered in defeat nor boasted in victoryg by "Eddie" Brister-a true Stevens
man with indomitable grit, pluck and courageg by "Whimp" Meinhold-who played each
game to a glorious victory, by "Sam" Thackaberry-who gave to each game all he had and
played fairly, by "Otz" Persson-who drove his protesting body to the limit of its powers
and then a little beyond for success, by "Duke" Brown-who voluntarily gave up his own
pleasure to battle for the good name Of his Alma Mater, by "Bill" vOnBracht-who played
the game for its own sake, and by "Artie" Meinhold-their Captain-who implanted both
by precepts and example those sterling qualities of good sportsmanship so well represented
by his teammates.
Those Of us who have followed the basketball contests so skillfully waged, gloried in the
health, the skill, the speed, the strength and the physical prowess that these fellows displayed.
They either won splendidly or lost superbly. Even in the loss Of the N. Y. U. game, their
only defeat, a most enviable record, there was a saving thought with them that the struggle
had been waged with skill and with gameness and that there is still another season and
another chance where victory for the Old Stone Mill will triumph.
Long after the scenes and music of that social festivity fades into pleasant memories, those
gold basketballs will remain as the tangible results of what good wholesome athletics stand
for and the part that they each played in placing the athletics of Stevens on so high a level
of clean sportsmanship. We have every confidence that they will carry those invisible words
of initiative, judgment, aggressiveness, courage, honor and morale, in all of which they have
been taught, into their business Or professional life in the great world which lies before them
and we hope for each of them success in the wider fields-the competitive fields that they
will enter when they bid their Alma Mater good-by.

COACH SIM CAPTAIN HARRISON MANAGER BAYLEY
The Lacrosse Season--1928
THE year 1928 was an exceptional one for lacrosse in that it marked the entrance of the
game into the Olympic schedule. The four best intercollegiate teams met in Baltimore in
June to decide which was to represent the United States at the games in Amsterdam.
Johns Hopkins earned this singular distinction and honor and the middle of August found
the Americans defeating the Canadians in a very fine exhibition of lacrosse. The following
day, the United States met the British Empire's representatives and lost. The Canadians
later defeated the English, leaving the series a triple tie which was never played off.
At Stevens, the season was fully in keeping with the traditions of the past seasons. The
team suffered two defeats in eight games and scored 45 goals to their opponents' 22. The
schedule was difhcult, but Coach Sim's charges defeated some of the outstanding teams in the
east and put up worthy battles with their two conquerors.
The season opened with numerous practice games with the Crescents and Alumni. These
games proved of immense value to the Stute, giving them opportunities to try new plays as
well as to defend themselves against fast and accurate shooters. Stevens showed up wonder-
fully in a game with the New York Lacrosse Club, defeating them 14 to 1. Midfield attack
and defense looked good and combined well in an excellent exhibition of teamwork. Practice,
as well as game with the Montclair Lacrosse Club, was held up for nearly two weeks due to
rainy weather for which Castle Point seems to be notorious. On the twenty-first of April,
Stevens met Swarthmore at Hoboken and lost the game. The match was well played but
Stevens was so severely penalized that it was impossible to recover. The encounter seemed
MAA1 - .
to prime the team for their game a week later with Lafayette. With the best exhibition of
stickwork and teamwork shown by the team up to that time in the season, they, overwhelmed
a powerful and heavy Lafayette team by the score of 7 to 2. St. Stephens bowed next, the
Stute team easily drowning them 10 to 1 in a very fast game at Castle Point. Lehigh came
next and proved a more dillicult victim. The Stute attack labored hard to pierce the Brown
and White defense and only three times did they succeed in making good. Lehigh was
successful in two attempts, but found difficulty in bettering their score. A week later, Rutgers
celebrated the resumption of athletic relations with Stevens by handing them a 7 to 3
defeat. Rutgers conquered the Army twelve and was one of the four teams to compete for
the Olympics. The final game was a victory for Stevens. N. Y. U. bowed by a score of 5 to 4,
in by far the best game of the season. Despite the fact that six men were lost by graduation,
the prospects for the 1929 season are very bright. Heintz was elected to succeed Harrison as
Captain, and C. D. Smith to replace Bayley 'as Manager.

The Swarthmore Game
SWARTHMORE, 5 STEVENS, 3
THE Stevens lacrosse team officially opened its season by meeting Swarthmore at the Castle
Point field on April 21, 1928. The Stute men found themselves up against a very strong
outfit which had had all of its rough spots worn off in a previous meeting with the strong
The second that the referee's whistle blew, there began one of the most excellent games of
lacrosse that the Stute field has ever witnessed. Fenn, at center, won the ball on the draw
and sent it hurling over the heads of the midfield and defense men right to MacWatt.
MacWatt made a beautiful catch and in the same motion sent a low fast pass to Sperr who
found little trouble in sneaking it by the goalie before the echo of the referee's whistle had
died away. It was a superb play and had a very decided effect upon the visitors. However,
the Pennsylvanians' were not long in recovering and a series of long accurate passes by their
defense put the ball in the sticks of their attack thus enabling them to tie the score. This was
the cue for the Stute men to put into action the plays which they had perfected. Three times
the attack carried the ball into a scoring position only to lose it to the Swarthmore goalie,
who made some beautiful stops. Finally, Heintz discovered a weak spot in the goalie's
defense and sent the ball singing into the net as the whistle blew for the half.
The second half found the Stute men again trying desperately to get the ball into position
to shoot. In doing so, they were severely penalized for blocking, two players being sent from
the field. The attack did its best to keep the ball away from the visitors. Some of the best
passing lacrosse has ever seen took place between the Stevens attack during this period, but
the two-man handicap proved too great and Swarthmore gained a lead which Stevens could
not overcome. -

The Lafayette Game
LAFAYETTE, 2 I STEVENS, 7
ON the twenty-eighth of April, the lacrosse team ventured forth to meet Lafayette on the
Easton field. Rain had made a field which was once turf into an immense mud-puddle
which, of course, made it necessary to resort to a passing game. Sticks soon showed the
effects of the damp atmosphere and it was not long before the game amounted to a man-t0-
man scrimmage for the ball.
The attack seemed to have little difficulty in getting the ball in position to shoot but most
of the shots went wild due to unusually tight sticks. Fenn, however, managed to make good
on numerous underhand shots at close range while Harrison made a most creditable showing
with his remarkable stick work. The mid-field did marvelous work recovering the ball and
keeping the goal clear for the attack. On two occasions, Rosenthal, at the inside defense,
received the ball and carried it the length of the field rather than risk a long pass to the
The particular play which seemed to be the most successful was accomplished by bringing
the ball down the side of the field and drawing the defense away from the goal. A man fast
cutting in from midfieldwould then receive the ball from across the goal and bat it in at short
range. This play seemed to mystify the defense and the goalie seldom could tell in which
direction he dared turn. The Lafayette attack, on the other hand, resorted to rushing the
goal and lost the ball in a screen of mud and water which soon covered the players. In many
instances the play had to be halted while the referee looked in the bottom of some miniature
lake for the ball. Knecht made a beautiful shot in the last fifteen seconds bringing the score
to Stevens, 7, Lafayette, 2.
The game was remarkably well played considering the extent to which both teams were
hindered by weather conditions.

The St. Stephens Game
ST. STEPHENS, 1 STEVENS, 10
THE Stevens lacrosse team played its third intercollegiate match on its home field, meeting
a fast team sent down from St. Stephens, and defeated them, 10 to 1. The visitors fought
hard and succeeded in carrying the ball down into Stute territory on many occasions, only
to lose it to our defense. As the referee blew his whistle opening the game, Fenn, at center,
drew the ball and made one of his fast passes to MacWatt, who returned the ball to him
making it possible to score before the game was half a minute old. An exciting scrimmage
in the early part of the game proved too much for Smith of St. Stephens, who found it
necessary to leave the game with a broken collar bone. This, apparently, was the signal
"to lay on the wood," for before long the game turned into a rough battle. Rosenthal proved
himself to be more than an inside defense man when he carried the ball the entire length of
the field and, to the delight of the audience, made a Very difficult shot and scored for Stevens.
The outstanding characteristic of the game was the speed with which the St. Stephens
defense recovered the ball and sent it down to their attack ahead of the midfield defense.
Bennett, at goal, on these occasions saved the score for Stevens by making some very beau-

The Lehigh Game
LEHIGH, 2 STEVENS, 3
ON the fifth of May, the Stute stickmen met and defeated the Lehigh lacrosse team in one
of the roughest games of the season. The Stevens attack seemed to have much difficulty
in breaking through the defense in order to score., until one of the midfield men broke away
from his man, received a fast pass on the cut and succeeded in scoring with a low spinning
pass at the goalie's feet. On the succeeding face-off, Sperr received the ball and tried desper-
ately to get into a shooting position. In doing so the ball was lost in scrimmage before the
goal. Suddenly, the ball was seen to rise from Sperris stick and sail beautifully into the goal.
It was in one of these clashes that Fenn, center, was hit and temporarily put out of the play.
After the men had scattered in a succeeding scrimmage, a Lehigh man was found on the
ground and a substitution was necessary. In the second period, Lehigh scored twice and
would have tied the score but for the gallant interceptions made by Bennett at goal.
The Stute's defense showed up well against Lehigh's veteran inside attack. A new system
was used to break up the plays. The defense man guarding the player with the ball would
shout "check," on a pass, whereupon the defense men would strike the attacks' sticks,
breaking up the plays. The entire plan of action used in this game proved itself worth the
time spent in working it up.

S The Rutgers Game
RUTGERS, 8 STEVENS, 3
GN May 13th, the Stevens lacrosse team jouneyed to Rutgers to be defeated on the
Neilson field by one of the strongest teams of the 1928 season. It was a game greatly
anticipated by both teams, first, because it marked the renewing of athletic relationships
between the two colleges and, secondly, because both teams had an identical style of play
both in defense and attack. While it is hard to say that either of the two teams played better
lacrosse, it is very true that the Rutgers men showed the greater strength in getting the ball
down the field to their attack. The Stevens attack was so closely guarded that it was im-
possible for the midfield to give them the long passes which made it possible for the ball to
come in ahead of the midfield defense.
Neither team scored very early in the game. Each was trying hard to find a weak point in
the other's play. Rutgers made the first score on a peculiar shot brushed in from a scrimmage
before the goal. MacWatt received the ball from Fenn on the succeeding draw and tallied.
The remainder of the first half found Rutgers scoring twice on fast plays close to the crease.
The second period found Sperrat"in homenpivoting around his man only to lose the ball to
the Rutgers' goalie who displayed an uncanny ability to keep his eye on the ball. After
numerous attempts, Sperr made a shot from his left shoulder which was too fast for the
goalie to stop. Harrison scored again for Stevens on a sharp angle shot. In spite of every
effort by the attack, they failed to score again while Rutgers succeeded in bewitching the
defense and sending the ball into the net to win by a score of 8 to 3.

The N. Y. U. Game
N. Y. U., 4 STEVENS, 5
S PRING Sports Day on May nineteenth hailed the classic of the 1928 lacrosse season. The
Stevens twelve clashed sticks with a dozen purple and white racket wielders from New
York University and emerged the victor after one of the most gallantly fought battles that
Castle Point has ever known. U
The Stute team lined up on the field with six Seniors about to play their last game for their
Alma Mater. As the whistle blew, they found that they were up against a team which was
used to having things pretty much their own way. However, the Stute midfield men promptly
took the situation in hand and as a result of some very brilliant passing, the attack succeeded
in scoring. The half ended with Stevens leading by two points.
The second half was characterized by a vast amount of midfield scrimmaging. Invariably,
either Barton or Sambleson would recover for Stevens and carry the ball to the attack. The
attack found scoring very difficult due to the slippery condition of the field. Reilly, at second
attack, once found the N. Y. U. goalie "galloping" about before the crease and shot a pretty
goal from midfield. Sambleson made the fifth and final tally putting Stevens in the lead by
one point. Despite the fact that the game was a bit rough in spots, it gave the spectators an
opportunity to see lacrosse at its best.

TWO unofficial pre-season games gave Coach Sim an opportunity to observe his squad of
candidates in action. The first game was played with the Crescent Lacrosse Club. As is
customary in such games, no score was taken but the impression was that the Stute stickmen
had a slight edge over their opponents. The opponents started off to play a very fast game
but their lack of condition soon told on them and slowed up the game. The second pre-season
game was with the New York Lacrosse Club. The first period found twelve picked men
running up a score as a result of marvelous stick work and fast passing. An entirely new
team went on the field in the second half and held the visitors scoreless as well as making
an enviable tally against them. The playing throughout showed wonderful teamwork in
getting the ball down the field and then in getting it into position to score.
A post-season game was played at Montclair with the Montclair A. C. during the supple-
mentary term. The game was particularly valuable since the Seniors were not in the line-up,
thus giving a fair idea how things would line up for the 1929 season. The results were very
encouraging. The defense was particularly successful in holding off the attack while the
midfield found little difficulty in keeping the ball with the attack which also did some very
pretty work on the scoring end.

The Baseball Season of 1928
THE baseball season of 1928 proved to be the most successful in many years. The team won
five of the nine games played, many of the victories being over colleges who have shown
very stern opposition in the past.
This was Coach Stallings' final season, and he developed the finest squad of his career.
The men appeared for practice earlyin .lanuary,working out in the gymnasium and the Navy
Building. This brought the batteries and infielders into good condition, so that but little
time was needed to round them into shape once they were on the diamond.
This season, the nine was composed for the most part of underclassmen, Captain Cussotti,
at shortstop, with Ahrens and Aschoff as batterymen being the only Seniors. The many
lettcrmen remaining should form a strong nucleus for next season.
The elections for 1929 were held at the close of the season. Arthur Meinhold was chosen
Captainr, Anthony Famiglietti, Managerg and William vonBracht, Assistant Manager.

The Trinity Game
TRINITY, 8 STEVENS, 9
ATURDAY, May 5th, the Red and Gray balltossers took the train to Hartford where they
S met Trinity in a most thrilling game.
Braden started this game but things became too hot for him in the sixth and Ahrens
Trinity started Mastronade on the mound but he lasted only four brief innings and was
relieved by Whittaker. ,
The scoring started in the third, when Thackaberry got on by virtue of two errors and
scored on Braden's single.
Again in the fourth, the Stevens team scored. Cussotti started by singling, then came a
bingle, a sacrifice, and two more bingles. The Stute men galloped around the base paths in
rare enjoyment and amassed five runs. Things were going so well, the game looked as if it
were on ice.
However, that was the time to look for squalls. Trinity, enraged, came to bat and soundly
trounced Braden with four hits and got three runs. Not yet satisfied, they came back in the
next frame and smacked out four more hits. Only these were harder. Two more runs followed
in the next inning.
The Trinity team blew up in the eighth and gave our boys two runs on two bingles and
two costly errors, coming at a critical time. The score thus became deadlocked and remained
so until the fifteenth inning.
The Stute men continued to fight hard, getting men on bases for the next three innings
but could force no runs over. Trinity also fought hard. Their
work was centered on the defense to keep our boys from
In the fourteenth inning, Trinity got two men on by virtue
of a walk and an error. A long fly to left which looked like a
sure hit was gobbled up by Art Meinhold who after a long
run made a thrilling dive and a shoestring catch of the flying
The fifteenth inning gave Stevens a run on a walk and two
hits. Trinity got a man on base through an error and the next
man hit to Cussotti who threw to catch the runner at home.
The last man up hit to third where Thackaberry made a bad
throw to first. The runner tried to score on this error but was
caught at the plate.
. The game was a freak from beginning to end. However,
good baseball was evidenced at times and the score, 9 to 8,
gave the Stevens men something pleasant to think of on their

The C. C. N. Y. Game
C. C. N. Y., 5 STEVENS, 4
A-I' the hands of C. C. N. Y., the Stevens nine suffered its first defeat of the season. The
C. C. N. Y. team came through in the eighth inning to score the winning run and win
by a 5 to 4 score.
C. C. N. Y. got off to a 3 to 1 lead in the first inning and another run in the fifth. However,
the Stute men garnered two runs in the fifth and another in the sixth to deadlock the score
at four all. In the eighth, C. C. N. Y. touched Braden for a pair of doubles which netted the
winning run and ended all scoring.
Braden, a Sophomore twirler, pitched a fine game allowing seven hits. Despite this fact,
he might have turned in a victory had it not been for two errors in the first frame by Aschoff.
These errors cost our nine two runs. Puleo, who pitched for C. C. N. Y., let our boys down
with one hit. However, seven bases on balls were almost his undoing.
The game began with C. C. N. Y. scoring three runs on two hits and two errors. The Stute
nine retaliated in its half of the inning by scoring a run on two bases on balls and two stolen
There was no more scoring until the fifth frame although both teams had opportunities
The fifth inning opened with a triple by Futterman, first baseman for our opponents,
followed by a double by Puleo. The next three men grounded out giving C. C. N. Y. one
run on two hits. Stevens started its half of the inning by having Sam Thaekaberry hit by
Puleo, and Bill Mingle walked.
A sacrifice by Braden was cleverly played so as to net two
runs. The next two men grounded out giving the Red team
two runs on no hits. '
In the sixth, Joe Cussotti, our shortstop Captain, got the
only hit of the game for Stevens, stole second and scored on
an error by the C. C. N. Y. catcher. The Stute men got one
run on one hit tying the score.
The unlucky eighth opened with an out, 1-Iarnett to
Persson. Then came two doubles by the C. C. N. Y. center
and left fielders. These hits accounted for a run and ended
The C. C. N. Y Club, by virtue ofits seven hits against our
one hit, deserved to win. However, our team also deserved
great credit for the fighting game it played, despite the
absence of the necessary hitting power. A team must he on
its toes to score four runs on one hit.

i The Swarthmore Game
SWARTHMORE, 2 STEVENS, 5
ON Saturday, April 21st, our ball team went to Swarthmore. The day was cool, rainy and
dark. However, our boys played a dashing eleven-inning game to win in that inning
by the score of 5 to 2.
Ahrens, a veteran twirler, did his stuff for Stevens and allowed only six hits during the
overtime contest. He was touched for two runs in the eighth frame but was airtight the
remainder of the time. Swarthmore used two pitchers during the fray and they allowed our
boys eleven hits and five runs.
The game was a nip-and-tuck affair until the fifth inning when Stevens hunched two
singles and a sacrifice to score one run. Cussotti opening the inning with a single,was sacri-
ficed to second by Ward. Then Van Riper grounded out. Otz Persson followed with a bingle,
scoring Joe. The inning closed with Thackaberry grounding out.
In the seventh, the Red and Gray nine got another run. After one down, Cussotti was
walked, sacrificed to second by Ward, and made third on an error by the pitcher. Then Van
Riper singled, scoring him. The inning ended abruptly when the Swarthmore catcher
caught Van off first.
The Swarthmore nine got busy with their bats in the eighth to score two runs and tie the
score. The first man up singled but was out on second on a fielder's choice. The third man
was hit, putting two men on. Adelmann, star center-fielder of Swarthmore, singled, Hlling
the bags. McCook, second baseman, now hit a long sacrifice fly to score the man on third
and advance the other runners. Cussotti made an error a few minutes later and a run
crossed the plate.
In the eleventh, with one down Aschoff was hit and scored
on Cussotti's single and Ward's double. Van Riper then exe-
cuted a perfect squeeze play, scoring Cussotti. Otz Persson
singled to score Ward, and Sam flied out retiring the side.
Swarthmore opened their half of the eleventh with a single
but the next three men were retired in rapid succession.
The Stevens team certainly played a thrilling game and
only won out in the eleventh from the never-say-die Swarth-
moreites. It was a game in which good teamwork proved to
be most successful. -

The New York University Game
N. Y. U., 3 STEVENS, 0
THE Tech nine journeyed to Ohio field, New York, Wednesday, May 9th, to battle with
the New York University aggregation. The game was a pitchers' duel, the final score
being 3 to 0. L
The playing was uneventful until the third inning when N. Y. U. bunched three hits with
clever base stealing to gain a three-run lead, which they held the remainder of the game.
Our boys also got three hits, all bingles, but they were so scattered that nothing could be
made from them.
The third inning opened with Sam Thackaberry striking out. Then Judd Ahrens, our
pitcher, Hied out to right field. Art Meinhold made his bid for a hit by driving a hot ball
down the third base line.
The N. Y. U. men, however, collected three runs in their turn at bat. Ahrens gave the
first man up a walk. The next man drove the ball to third. Thackaberry tossed the ball to
Pillat, at second, catching the runner coming from first. One out, one on. The next batter
was the pitcher who promptly took three whiffs at the ball and struck out. In the meantime,
the runner on first stole second. Two down, a man on second. Things looked bright but we
were fooled, for Roberts singled, scoring Norton. He stole second and Mayell, the next
hitter, singled, scoring him. Then Madison followed with another single to score Mayell.
The inning ended with the next man flying out to right.
In the fourth inning, the Stute men managed to get a man on third and second with one
out. Then followed an infield play and a base on balls filling the bags with two out. Our
hopes were dashed to the ground when Pillat, the man on
third, was caught off the base for the third out.
The remainder of the game was quiet and serene with no
chances of pushing any runs over. So the contest ended,
3 to 0 in N. Y. U.'s favor.

The Rutgers Game
Rurcans, 7 STEVENS, 3
THE Rutgers baseball aggregation was matched against the Stevens nine as the big attrac-
tion for the Alumni on Alumni Day, May 12th. Braden, our twirler, performed for
Stevens. He was slightly off form in the third and seventh innings when three runs apiece
were scored on him. Garrett pitched for Rutgers. His southpaw slants gave the Stute men
considerable trouble at hat.
The contest began immediately following the Alumni procession. Everything was peaceful
until the third inning when things began to happen. Garrett, the Raritan pitcher, smacked
a neat triple after one down. Then followed a base on balls and a sacrifice. Still no score.
Suddenly the big guns from New Brunswick boomed and three singles went sailing out to
the great open spaces. When the scene quieted down, Rutgers had three runs.
Three innings later, the Tech nine let loose and got two singles which resulted in a run.
The seventh frame was most disastrous when again the Rutgers guns perforated our
defense with four more singles. The result of this bombardment was three more well-earned
runs. The score was then 6 to 1.
Bloodthirsty, our boys went to bat in the eighth. Two singles after one down put two men
on. Then followed a measly grounder. Faithful Otz Persson stepped to the plate and got
revenge by giving the apple a ride which was good for three bases and two runs. The inning
closed with Thackaberry flying out to center. '
Nothing happened in the ninth to change the score and Rutgers was the victor. The Stute
men had played good hard ball but so had Rutgers. Stevens will be after Rutgers' hide next
season, so "Watch out."

THE season opened with a rush when the Stute downed Cooper Union,20 to 3, at Hoboken.
Ahrens was at his best on the mound, fanning ten men in the seven innings he worked
which is an admirable record. Every Stevens batsman reached first base at least once, but
it was not always due to safe hits, many arriving at the sack through fumbles and wild
The following week, Cathedral College of New York City bowed to the Red and Gray's
batsmen, 7 to 1, in a game in which three regular members of the Varsity were absent. The
battery of Braden and Motzer functioned perfectly, the latter catching an errorless game
behind the bat.
The scheduled game with Rensselaer on April 14th, had to be cancelled because of rain.
The team suffered its first defeat of the season at the hands of C. C. N. Y., when the Gotham-
ites pushed two runs across in the eighth inning to win 5 to 4. Three days later, a return to
form was seen, Swarthmore losing on its home field, 5 to 2. The game went into extra innings,
the winning run coming in the eleventh, when Aschoff scored on Ward's double.
Pratt and Trinity were the next opponents to bow to the aggressive Stevens men. The
Pratt game was a very interesting, spirited encounter, which Coach Stallings' nine won
6 to 3. The game with Trinity was played at Hartford, and was the most thrilling battle of
the year, fifteen innings being required to decide the winner.
From this time on, the Stute met with defeat. New York University, Rutgers and Haver-
ford, all were victorious in close games. These reverses were largely the fault of overwork.
Had the squad had longer periods between their games, at least one would have resulted
favorably to Stevens. None of the defeats were by a large margin, and all feel that the season
was a highly successful one.

COACII DAVIS CAPTAIN KIDDI-I
The Tennis Season-1928
THE season of 1928 was by all means a successful one. Seven games out of the eleven played
were won. That this is considered successful is based upon many considerations. The
schedule was difficult, the material was not the best possible, and the weather was by all
Director Davis has always felt that a good tennis player is developed by much practice.
Thus it was that Varsity tennis practice started the week we returned to school in the fall.
When the weather became disagreeable, practice was held in the gym and also at the 9th
'Regiment Armory in New York. Indoor practice continued throughout the winter until the
outside courts were fit for playing.
The season opened on April 5th, with the Philadelphia Textile College. This proved an
easy victory for the Stute men. They won all matches by the margins and at no time were
in danger of losing. The final score was 6 to 0.
The Stute team scored their second victory by defeating Pratt, 7 to 0. The opposition
was very weak. The only matches which were in the least exciting were those of Kidde and
Last in the singles.
The Brooklyn Poly game proved to be another victory for the Stevens team. All tl1e
matches were hard fought, the Stevens men coming out on top by rather close margins.
Here we suffered the loss of the first match of the season when Last of Stevens went down
before Stein of Poly. The final score was 5 to 1.

Up to this point, the team showeda very good brand of tennis. They had won three matches
and had lost none. The total number of sets scored was fifteen to the opponents' one.
The first set-back came from the N. Y. U. team. They defeated the team by the score of
4 to 2. In the singles the teams were tied. Last and McDonald played exceptionally good
tennis and were the only ones to break through. This was the first match Stevens lost this
season. Director Davis laid the failure to the had weather and the few outdoor practices.
When Rensselaer came to Stevens on the 28th, it rained so the game had to be played in
the gym. The Stevens team won by 3 to 1. Both teams showed an exceptionally good brand
of tennis. Kidde won his match in a very spectacular contest C9 to U, C7 to 9D, C9 to 7J.
McDonald and Aldrich won their singles in close but shorter matches.
The following Wednesday the team traveled to West Point and the Army was defeated
4 to 2. Kidde, Aldrich and McDonald won in the singles by easy margins. In the doubles, the
teams came out even. McDonald played his usual steady game. Up to this point, he had
won every match of the season.
The team lost the second match of the season to Haverford on May4th. The playing was
close and fast. In the singles, the opponents came out ahead by winning three out of five.
The Stevens men fought desperately to overcome this advantage in the latter part of the
match but lost both doubles matches.
The team came back into form again and won the St. Stephens match by a final margin
of 6 to 0. Kidde had a hard time getting started but finally won 7 to 5, 6 to 2. McDonald
played a very steady game.
On May 12th, the team wcnt to Lafayette and were easy victors, 6 to 3. Aldrich showed
some of the best tennis of the day in his singles match. The Stevens men won three of the
six singles and made a clean sweep of the doubles. McDonald played a very good game and
won his match after losing the first set.
The following Wednesday, the team bowed to the C. C. N. Y. contingent. The visitors
took four of the singles and two doubles to win, 6 to 3. The weather was favorable and both
teams played very good tennis. Kidde won his match easily but McDonald had a harder
time and finally won. McDonald's match was the most exciting that day. In the doubles,
Kidde and Last broke through and won the only other match.
The season was brought to a close on Spring Sports Day when Rutgers came to Castle
Point, and defeated the Stute 4 to 2. The courts were damp. It rained the night before and
sand had.to be thrown on and rolled in before playing was possible. Kidde won C4 to 61,
C6 to 4j, C8 to 6j, in a snappy exhibition. Last won his match easily and contributed the
only other victory. Both doubles were hard fought but were won by the Rutgers men.
A resume of the season shows a total of seven victories against four defeats. This is an
exceptionally good record considering the size of some of the colleges played. On the whole,
the season was good but not as successful as last season when the team suffered no defeats.
The team played a good brand of tennis throughout the season as records of the matches
show. Director Davis is to be praised for his fine work in coaching the team.

INTERCOLLEGIATE soccer is an entirely new sport at the Stute. The game was intro-
duced here in the fall of 1928 by Coach Misar, who came to us from Springfield where, we
are given to understand, the "better" players and teams are made. We have no reason to
doubt this for, judging from the results of the unofficial soccer team which he turned out, we
are willing to vouch for Springfield's ability to turn out soccer coaches as well as layers.
A meeting early in the fall brought forth many candidates from all four classes. The coach
lectured to the men, giving 'them the fundamentals of the game, and showing them just what
the game was all about. Practice was held regularly four times a week from then on. Carl
Lunghard, '30, reported for Manager and arranged a schedule of games with near-by teams.
Pratt was the first college team that the Stute encountered. Although only a practice game,
it was played with spirit. Seton Hall was the next team played by the Stute. This time the
Stevens defense showed up better, the visitors were unable to score more than two points
during the entire match. Bennett and Wells fought valiantly to bring the ball into scoring
position but the ame ended with no score for Stevens. Pratt's second game with the Stute
proved to be the Stute's first victory. The game ran into two extra periods before the winning
goal was made. The Stute appeared at its best in this game. Every man playing seemed to
know what to do, and when to do it. Many other practice games were played with profes-
sional and minor teams, culminating in the recognition of soccer as a minor sport, this
by the action of the Athletic Council. All thanks and credit are due to Coach Misar for the
recognition given to the sport. The Class of '31 seems to have given more candidates to the
team than any other class. This, it is hoped, is an indication of a strong Stute soccer team
in the near future.
CROSS-COUNTRY running was started at Stevens in the fall of 1928. A course of ap-
proximately three and one-half miles was laid out on the grounds, and, as President
.Davis says, it has the distinction of being the only course in the world within 'twenty minutes
of Wall Street. While the distance is shorter than the regular Intercollegiate distance, still
it is sudficiently long for the first year of the sport, especially as Freshmen and upperclassmen
competed on the same basis.
The actual running was taken up by students with considerable spirit, and groups could
be seen jogging around the campus in all kinds of weather. Some of the candidates showed
considerable natural ability, while others, poor at the start, improved remarkably during the
short season. It required time to build up ability in distance running, and the results achieved
by the Stute runners in their first season were quite satisfactory.
While the sport was planned to be of a purely informal nature at the start, it was also
thought that a little outside competition might add some interest. It was naturally difficult
to secure any races, as most teams had completed their schedules in advance. However,
meets with the teams of the New York Stock .Exchange and Rutgers were arranged. While
Stevens as a team lost both meets, several Stute runners showed u very well. The competi-
tion against experienced runners aided greatly in improving the judjgment of the Stute team.
An interclass meet was also held, which was won by the Sophomores. The meet held at
Stevens for the New Jersey High Schools proved of value in keeping Stevens before the
P Considered impartially, cross-country was as successful as could be expected during its
first season. If it is continued, it should develop into a worth-while fall sport. It requires very
little actual time on the student's part, and gives him a fair return on time invested.

The Cane Sprees of 1928
EVERY year the most important Rush ofthe year between the Sophomore and Freshman
classes takes place On Prep Night. This Rush is the Cane Sprees, in which representa-
tives from both classes wrestle for possession of a smooth, thick stick known as the Cane.
There is one man from each class in each of seven weight divisions, and the class winning a
majority Of the bouts is the victor. If the Freshmen win, they gain the privilege of smoking
their class pipes beginning their Sophomore yearg if the Sophomores win, they gain the right
to smoke their class pipes from then On, if they have not already won that right the year
The Cane Sprees of 1928 took place On February 24th in the Walker Gymnasium before a
large crowd of prep men. The Class of '31 won easily from the Class Of '30 by the score of
five bouts to two, the bouts all being interesting and well-fought. The longest bout was over
twenty minutes, while the shortest was thirty-seven seconds.

The Cage-Ball Rush
I-IOSTILITIES between 1931 and 1932 began one fine October afternoon with the Cage-ball
Rush. This event is second only to the famous Cane Sprees held in the gym on Prep
Night. In 1928, the Sophs came off victorious by a 1-0 score. It was rather unexpected as the
Frosh outnumbered them by about twenty men. To the Sophs "on the battlefield" the
Frosh seemed to be in a 2-1 majority, for every time a Soph turned around two Frosh were
ready to jump on him-and how!
In the beginning, ten tall men from each class formed a circle and the 3-foot Cage Ball was
placed on their upraised hands. Behind their respective men the two hungry, bloodthirsty
hordes crouched ready to spring at one another and fight to push the ball to their respective
goals. "Charlie" Fenn blew the whistle and the Sophs rushed forward. The Frosh were
equally well instructed and rushed forward at the same timeg however, they lacked ex-
perience and failed for a time to check the upperclass onslaught.
The Sophs had the wind with them and soon carried the ball down the field to the Frosh
goal but failed to put it over. At this point the Frosh awakened and started to use their
superior numbers. The ball was tossed up on the 20-yard line and for a time seemed to stand
stillg then the Frosh's numbers started to count. The ball went down to the Sophs' 40-yard
line before the '31 men stopped the advance. By this time a strong wind had blown up and
the Sophs decided to make use of it. They needed only to keep the ball high up in the air and
the wind did the rest. Soon the Sophs with groans and grunts and cries of "Fight-fight like
hell, Sophs" got the ball down to the F rosh goal and over. Numerous tries were made in the
first half for another goal but they all failed.

In the second half the goals were changed, the Frosh having the advantage of the wind.
They tried to repeat the trick of the '31 men but were unsuccessful. The ball stayed down
at the Soph goal and the game resolved itself into a fight to keep the ball in the center. The
Sophs succeeded continually in pushing the ball to the right boundary line and consequently
the Frosh were unable to score.
The victorious men of '31 started the traditional snake dance singing "to hell with '32."
The angry F rosh broke up the line and the field was soon filled with personal combats.
Honors were about even, both classes leaving the same amount of clothing behind. The
losers were seen running into the gym like modern "Adams."

VIVHE second conflict between 1931 and 1932 was the Tug-o'-War. Here the tables were
turned and the Frosh came off victors by a 2-1 score. The day was anything but pleasant,
there had been rain the day before and the skies were forbidding. To add to the misery of the
seantily-clad participants a cold northwest wind had blown up. Before the contest, the
Frosh and the Sophs huddled in two groups on the west grandstand of the athletic field and
looked anything but warm. Members of the Student Council got the hose out and proceeded
to fill the jumpin pit with water. Water on a day like that! The So hs looked on and shivered,
the Frosh smiled, for they outnumbered the Sophs and intended, to pull them through the
The classes lined up on each end of the 100-yard manila hawser and "grabbed ahold.'
"Charlie,' Fenn gave the signal and the fight was on. For a brief half minute the Sophs gained
ground, singing their "yo-yo-yo-yo" cry. The Frosh got over their surprise and started
pulling for fair. The movement gained momentum and soon ended in a complete rout, with
consequent "dousing" for the '31 men.
On the second pull the upperclassmen got on the Soph side and by their efforts the Frosh
were pulled through the water also. The score was then 1-1 and another pull had to be made.
This time the upperclassmen stayed off and the Frosh made a determined effort. They
rather easily succeeded in winning the pull. Toward the end, the Sophs tried to wind the
rope around the stand and several participants narrowly escaped being hurt. The victorious
Frosh dragged their rope around the field and called the Sophs all sorts of uncomplimentary
names. The 931 men were too tired and discouraged to fight or break up the Frosl1dance.The
Class of '32 then proceeded to carry the 100-yard hawser around Hoboken. The police were
good-natured and did not try'to break up the victory march until it finally returned to the
athletic field and disbanded.

HE interclass baseball series, which inaugurated the supplementary term's activities,
proved to be short-lived, only three games being played, of which the Freshmen won two
by overwhelming scores. The first. class team had a background of Junior Varsity men who
presented stiff opposition to their more experienced upperclass rivals. In the opening game
of the season on June 7th, the Frosh got off to a flying start against their rivals, the Sopho-
mores, and whitewashed them 9 to 0. Krantz, pitching for 1931 displayed the finest brand of
interclass twirling seen in many years, and very few batsmen who faced him reached the
bases. Vannini, the Sophomore moundsman had less luck. and in the seven innings played,
nine Freshmen crossed the plate. On the following day, the most interesting contest of the
series was played, the Juniors nosing out the Sophomores by one run in the last inning, 6 to 5.
Both sides were evenly matched in fielding ability, but the Juniors' superiority on the base
paths gave them the victory.
The Juniors met the Frosh on June 13th in a memorable contest which lasted until late
in the evening. Both teams slugged right and left., and only the fact that more errors were
made by the upperclass nine than by the Frosh gave the latter the victory, 16 to 12. Seldom
has such a ball game been seen at Stevens, and a large crowd was on hand to witness it.
- Interclass Lacrosse
HE interclass lacrosse matches for 1928 numbered but two. which were both won by the
Class of '30, The third regularly scheduled game, which was between the Freshmen and
the Juniors, was forfeited to the former after several postponements and a non-appearance
by the third year men.
In the series this spring, the Sophomores led hy a wide margin. Their opening game against
the Juniors witnessed the best action of the entire ycar's intramural sports, the ball hovering
around the goal nets most of the t.ime. As the closing moments of the last period drew near,
lntemann, '30, tossed in t.he only goal of the game. Two days later the Class of 1930 rang up
its second and decisive victory over the Freshmen in a loosely played match, 4- to 0. Luck
appeared to be the dominating factor, and the goals by Cockerill, Persson and Intemann were
little short of miraculous. This proved to he the final contest ofthe series, for a period of
adverse weather conditions caused the Freshman-Junior game to be put off until just before
the close of the supplementary term, at which time an insuflicicnt number of Juniors ap-
peared, thus forfeiting the game to their opponents.
HE annual soccer tournament, played in the early autumn is probably the most im-
portant of the interclass events. This year, the interest ran unusually high due to the
innovation of soccer as an intercollegiate sport at Stevens. The two lower classes, who formed
the nucleus of the Varsity squad, showed the benefits of Coach Misar's training in the inter-
class series and were the only teams to be credited with victory. This season, the series got
" r lElIIllll llll Ef 1 5
off to a slow start, the first game being played November 1, 1928 between the Seniors and the
Sophs. Although the ball several times menaced the Seniors, goal, no one succeeded in push-
ing it over, and the first game of the year ended in a scoreless tie. The following week saw but
little more action, the Sophomores tallying only once on the Juniors, while the Seniors and
Juniors played to a scoreless tie. The Sophomore victory of November 9th over the Class of
1930 gave them a firm hold on the championship, the tie match with the Freshmen failing
to shake it loose. The next day, they cinched the series with a one point victory over the
Interclass soccer this fall was characterized by the careful and scientific type of game
played by all classes. The defense of the two lower-class squads against their heavier upper-
classmen was excellent, the latter failing- to account for a single goal.
HE interclass basketball series last fall produced a better quality of play than has been
Tseen in some years. Each class had for the nucleus of its team several members of the
Junior Varsity squad, and the result was that every game was nip and tuck without much
to choose among the four classes.
In the opening game, the Freshmen defeated the Juniors by the score of 36 to 27. Gaynor
and Raehals stood out for the Frosh, and Vileee for the Juniors. The Seniors defeated the
.luniors in a long and hard-fought game, the final score being 35 to 33. Following this game,
the Seniors were victorious over the Freshmen, by the score of 34 to 27. The Sophomore-
Freshman game was unusually well played with the Sophomores playing slightly the better
game. The final score was 4-3 to 35 in favor of the upperclassmen. The Senior-Sophomore
game ended in a victory for the Seniors, the score being 35 to 28. The Sophomores had no
appreciable trouble in conquering the Juniors to the tune of 22 to 14. The series ended with
tl1e Seniors victorious, since they won all of their games.
THIS football season of 1928 again proved that football is the most popular sport at
Stevens. The Seniors won tl1e first interclass game, playing against the Freshmen, by the
score of 6 to 0. It was a hard-fought battle, throughout. The Sophomores turned back the
.luniors to the score of 14 to 0, on a wet and muddy field. The Sophomore-Senior game was
stubbornly contested and well played, it ended with the Sophomores leading, 10 to 7. A
great Freshman victory was expected in the Junior-Freshman game and such was found to
be the case, the ,Juniors losing by 32 to 0. The Seniors gave the Juniors their third straight
defeat to the tune of 13 to O.
The last game of the season, the Freshman-Sophomore game, proved to be the most
interesting of the series. The Freshmen won 7 to 0, causing a triple tie. It was decided that
there should be no play-off, but each of the tied teams should receive credit for a victory.

PROFESSOR JOHN C. WEGI.E, Assistant Dean
T is said that the oflice of Dean . . . is so equipped with modern conveniences that when
you step into it to ask about a group of students he will say, "Look this way," and before
you there appears in panoramic view the whole group in all their questionable beauty just
as they are.
My oflice is not so equipped, but it has a window, and from it I have seen many things.
One thing which is always before me and has absorbed a great deal of my interest and atten-
tion for the past few years has been the "Activities" on the campus.
One cannot go on the campus of any modern college today without being tremendously
impressed with the activities of the student body. The list and the scope of these activities
seemingly are limited oftentimes only by the ingenuity of the students themselves. And
anyone who has any, close contact with the college student knows that whatever his failings
may be, the lack of ingenuity is not to be found among them.
Student activities, many of them growing naturally out of the classrooms themselves, fall
into a number of major groups. Among these are student government, ublications, musical
and dramatic societies, athletics and the social side of the college life. II'he list might easily
be multiplied indefinitely but the phases cited cover practically all of the major extra-
curricula activities on the campus today.
Are the college ublications an educational instrumentality for building up the unity of a
college? Is the colfege fraternity an educational agency? Are athletics, when properly super-
vised and developed, great educational benefits? Are tl1e various other organizations an
essential part of the enterprise in which we are engaged? I cannot conceive that it is very
difficult to justify the existence of these many activities outside of the classroom, for, if my
observations have not been at fault, and I doubt if they have, I am convinced that that phase
of our education in which the character of the student is developed and made strong is done,
not only by competition against himself, but by competition against others. It is in this field
that our extra-curricula activities, I believe, play so reat a function, for there can be no
serious doubt that the man who devotes himself entire y to his books is etting only part of
the benefits to be had in the college. To me there is no justification or the existence of
colleges if they are engaged in turning out nothing but bookworms.
I welcome our activities, for their very existence is a healthy sign of a growing institution.
,l firmly believe that the student activities must be regarded an integral part of our educa-
tional program and furthermore, I believe in the rights of the students to the largest ossible
measure of self ex ression consistent with the educational purposes of the college. ow it is
always open to deqiate how far the college should gp in maintainin some degree of control
over these activities. The range appears to be all t e way from a " ands off' policy to one
of strict control which amounts very often to a species of paternalism. Personally, I have
come to feel that the college authorities should allow the students every reasonable degree
of freedom in these matters.
It is also a serious question as to how far the college should go in su porting these various
student enterprises. It must know when to give financial and materia support and when to
have the courage to say "no." We should not be content to let an organization go on merely
because it was once sanctioned. The burden of the proof for their continued right to exist
should always be on the organizations themselves. My policy in this respect will be to keep
a fairly close watch on all our activities and insist that they justify their existence. They can
only exist just as long as the student body as a whole will carry its share of directing and
engaging in them and not allow the main burden to be carried by a few students.

A COLLEGIATE MUSICAL COMEDY IN TWO ACTS

Entire production under supervision. of
THE entire action of the show is prophetic in nature, depicting the Stevens of the future,
the actual time being set as the fall of 1936. Football and eo-eds Cboth being innovations
at the Old Stone Milli share equally the time of the students in this Utopia of engineering
education. Butch Harrington, the Captain-elect of the first 'team that Stevens has put on
the football field in many a year, appears to be very much in love with Betty Drayton, one
of the fairest of the fair co-eds, and she shows not a little interest in Butch. Bill Wyse. a
Freshman, and a cousin of Wally Banks, appears the opening day, and immediately tries to
big-time his classmates by acting the part of an upperclassman. This is soon discovered and
Bill is promptly and most effectively squelched by the upperclassmen, but Bill proceeds to
get himself more disliked than ever by continually boasting of his football ability, though hc
never seems anxious to prove it by going out to practice. Bill also gets himself very much in
Buteh's way by continually chasing Betty around, though she gives him no encouragement
because of his conceit. The first act closes with Betty explaining to Bill that unless he shows
more interest in his college and less in himself, she will have nothing more to do with him.
Throughout the first act, the comedy is furnished by Reggie Van Smytlie, a l1ero-wor-
shipping Freshman, his newly acquired girl friend, Dotty Blair, and Benny Ginsberg,another
Freshman. The comedy situations are many and keep the three busy supplying humor.
Benny and Reggie sing the chief comedy number "Wimmen" to the laughs of the audience
and the squirms of the faculty.
The second act opens with Bill, who has finally gone out for the team, pleading with the
coach to give him a decent chance to show what he can do. It develops that the team, at
Butch's suggestion and under his guidance, are deliberately making it hard for Bill to make
any headway, in hopes that they may be able to reduce the size of Bill's swelled head. Peg
Randall, another co-ed, informs Butch that if he doesn't pass the mythology quiz the next

day, he will be ineligible for the big game with R. P. I. that week. She tutors him in the
subject, so well, in fact, that he passes with flying colors. Also, during thc tutoring lesson,
Butch discovers that Peg is the girl he has really cared for all along, though he has never
realized it. Immediately after, upon having a quarrel with Betty about the way they were
treating Bill at practice, he is quite sure of it. Betty 'then tells Bill that the fellows are not
giving him a fair deal and Bill resolves to make good in spite of them, aided by Betty's
In the big game, Butch gets his leg sprained, and all the other substitutes being laid up,
the coach finally puts Bill in the game with the score two points against the Stute. Bill, once
having gotten his chance, immediately starts to prove he has the ability to play football,
after all, and after several long runs, finally puts the ball over for the winning touchdown.
As the final curtain drops, the three couples, Bill and Betty, Butch and Peg, Reggie and
Dotty, are getting along quite famously with one another.
Of the musical numbers in the show, the most enthusiastically received were "The Stone
Mill Stompf, "Hoboken's Bohemia Nown and "Moonlit Skies," by Sambleson and Waltz.
The most amusing of the comedy scenes was the one in which the old 1877 Selden buggy,
borrowed from the museum, was brought on and used as the center of a lengthy, fast-
moving sketch on the subject of modern collegiate vehicles.

I-IE Stute is thc weekly undergraduate publication at Stevens, serving to present all the
news of the college, and as a permanent record of all happenings at the Institute. The aim
of the State is to be tl1e medium of expression for students, alumni, faculty, and administra-
The present volume when completed will concl'ude the twenty-fifth year of the existence of
the college weekly. These twenty-five years have witnessed many changes in the make-up
of the paper, as well as in size. The first Stute was a small pamphlet published once a month.
From this size it has grown until now it is issued weekly throughout the college year, with
either four or six pages, 15 by 19 inches in size.
At all important happenings at the Institute, as for example, the death of Dr. Humphreys
and the inauguration of President Davis, the Stute puts out special issues, in each of these
cases an issue of eight pages.
Work on the State is progressive, the candidates working up from reporter to the Senior
executive positions. The only reward that the men on the Board receive is the Quill "S,"
awarded for meritorious service on the Board., and an annual party, which this year took the
form of a dinner and show.
The men, however, receive a valuable education in news writing and make-up, and are
banded together in a spirit of co-operation that is of the greatest value in post-college life.
The Stute, as a member of the Intercollegiate Newspaper Association of the Middle
Atlantic States, is enabled to keep in close contact with other college papers, mutually
exchanging news of interest, comparative athletic scores, and helping one another in the
solution of similar problems confronting each paper.
The editorial policy of the Stute is to express ideas and opinions that seem of value to the
Institute and the student body, and to refrain from criticism of the administration unless
such criticism is really constructive.

N the face of very fine work done on previous LINKS. it devolved upon the '29 Board to
bring forth a volume to compare favorably with those that had gone before. The keynote
of the LINK of 1929 might well be "Innovation." New thought is evident in art work,
photography. and in sectional assembly. We believe this cover to be quite different from
anything of its kind at Stevens.
It would scarcely be fair to say that any one man is responsible for whatever success the
LINK of 1929 may have. The more than usually difficult task of keeping the book in healthy
financial condition fell to Norman Fraser. He has done distinctively well in this important
position. The brunt of the literary work fell upon Gordon Bowen. A man less gifted with the
pen could not have succeeded in the limited time at his disposal. The logical, well-knit
athletic section was developed under Eibe Deck's care, who gave more than ordinary atten-
tion to this department. Noel Urquhart took complete charge of the art work. With few
exceptions, the drawings in this volume are his handiwork. The highly original divisional
cuts are evidences of his carefully-thought-out plan. The arrangement of photographic
material and the obtaining of it has been the duty of Cordon Thayer. This division of the
book took a staggering amount of time and effort, and reflects credit on his effort. Several
new ideas are in evidence in the fraternity section. There have been changes in arrangement
and material. These innovations were made possible through the inventiveness and efficient
workmanship of Arthur Stern. The time and energy-consuming job of Circulation Manager
went to Robert Lange. It was a severe blow to both him and the LINK when he was forced
to drop out at midyears. William Durland picked up the reins and has since capably managed
the business of getting new subscriptions and payments on old ones. Alfred Gregory receives
the palm for resourcefulness. With only three weeks to work before press time and with
absolutely no previous experience, he stepped into the totally unfamiliar job of Adver-
tising Manager and came through in fine style.
Two other Juniors have rendered valuable assistance in time of stress. Charles Guarraia
has made himself generally useful. and Jerome Sartirana has saved the Board immeasurable
time with his expert typing of copy. The LINK of 1929 has been fortunate in its Sophomore
candidates. They have labored hard and long at distasteful jobs. thereby permitting the
Juniors to attend to executive work. Toward the end of the year. the Photographic Editor
found it necessary to withdraw from active work on the Board. and it fell to a candidate,
Roger McLean, to complete this very difficult task.

The Stone Mill
UP to the autumn of the year 1921, the student body here at the Stute was very much
occupied with the more serious side of life, and then it occurred to a few of the Seniors
that something ought to be done about brightening up the place to some degree. All these
Seniors agreed that a comic would just about fill the bill. So the Stone Mill came into being.
The first years of the Stone Mill led over one of the rockiest roads any activity here at the
Stute has ever experienced, but after the Board finally beat the magazine into financial shape
and obtained recognition as a student activity, the main part of the student body began to
look forward to each new issue of the Mill and chafe at any delay in getting it out.
The Stone Mill is issued six times during the college year, and always endeavors to present
clean and wholesome humor and the best wit available at the college, interspersed with
clever and artistic drawings. It has won a high place among the college comics in this section
of the country and is a member of the Association of College Comics of the East.
The present Board assumed control in June, 1928, and immediately set out to improve
the magazine wherever it seemed possible, and ran into certain difficulties usually associated
with magazine work. There is generally a scarcity of advertising due to the relatively small
circulation, and it is not always easy to overcome this main obstacle. However, the Mill
ground along and turned out what everyone agrees is the best-appearing and most humorous
magazine the college has seen in some time. Along about the middle of the year, the Comics
Editor, P. A. Castel, who had been out for the Board since his Freshman year, was called
back to his native land of Argentina, and thus left a vacancy on the Board. Norbert Eich,
'30, was elected to fill the position, and the work of the Mill went grinding on. The Board has
worked hard to make the magazine as humorous as possible and at the same time as clean as
possible, and in spite of being a college comic, has succeeded.
The Stone Mill urges every college student to submit contributions and try to gain a
position on the Board. For those who are interested in writing in lighter vein, there is
opportunity for pleasant diversion and possibility of winning a Quill "SN on this publication.

The Undergraduate Press Club
THE Undergraduate Press Club, formerly known as the News Bureau, was organized in
1924 by Walter H. Martin of the Class of 1924, who was its first Manager. It was accorded
formal recognition as "The Undergraduate Division of the Publicity Bureau" on February
24, 1924-., when the late President Humphreys granted such a request. Recognition by the
Student Council had been previously sought and granted.
While being a separate activity, the Press Club serves to bring all the activities at the
Institute before the public eye and, in that duty, its responsibilities are great. The leading
papers of New York City, Newark, Jersey City and Hoboken are served by the Club.
Correspondents are required to keep in close touch with up-to-the-minute news about the
Institute and to present such news to the papers accurately. In sending in write-ups, facts
alone are stated and all opinions withheld.
The Club consists of members of the undergraduate body as candidates and correspondents,
a director, a faculty adviser and a graduate adviser. A candidate is required to do consider-
able preliminary work before he becomes a correspondent, when he is elected to the Board
and assigned to "cover', one or more newspapers. He is then responsible for all material
furnished his paper, subject to the approval of the Manager or Assistant Manager. The
Press Club feels assured that in this way all athletic events and general college news will be
presented to the public in a dignified and accurate manner. Meetings of the Club are held
often to plan ahead for coming events to insure their being thoroughly "covered."
The Press Club makes every possible effort to get news of Saturday's game in the Sunday
morning papers. To this end preliminary information and the early results are either phoned
or telegraphed in to the paper while the game is in progress and the final results as soon as
the game is over. In spite of these efforts of the Press Club, it is extremely difficult to get
stories in any but the later editions.

IIE Stevens Engineering Society was originated in l887 as an organization which would give its members
Tan opportunity to discuss mechanical topics and inspect such local industrial plants as were convenient.
Since then it has instituted many new ideas, the most po ular of which are the smokers held several times a
year. The smokers are under the auspices of the Society, lint are opcn to the college. For speakers. leaders in
the scientific world are chosen. This season's speakers have included such prominent men as Dr. Elmer
S erry, of the Sperry Gyroscope Company, Dr. Thomas Darlington, former Health Commissioner of the
Ciity of New York, and Mr. Samuel Frantz and President Harvey N. Davis of Stevens Institute. At several
of the smokers the members brought their fathers, and many were the "old grads" who returned on these
The principal inspection trip of the car was to Lakewood, where the Society viewed the United States
Navy lwlirigihle, the "Los Angeles." Although a large bus had been chartered for the trip, it was not sufficient
to hold the crowd wishing to make the trip, and private cars were commandeered.
In addition to the trips and smokers, meetings were held regularly, at which members presented papers
on interesting topics of the day.
As the Engineering Society is directly afliliated with the American Society of Nlechanical Engineers, many
members found keen interest in the metropolitan convention ofthe student branches of the central organiza-
tion. Most of the technical colleges in the vicinity of New York City are represented, and the fellowship of
good feeling is felt by all who attend.

HE Junior Branch of the Society was organized live years ago by those Freshmen and Sophomores who
Tobjected to the lack of ri ht of vote in the parent organization, the Senior S. E. S. Since then, it has rown
steadily in membership ant? activity, until this season it ranks on a par with many of the long-establlished
campus societies. This season it included among its activities three inspection trips to near- y industrial
plants, two educational motion pictures, lectures, and talks by members.
The first inspection trip of the year, to the Cooper-Hewitt Electric Light Company, was patronized hy
many upperclassmen as wcll as members of the Society. This precedent was followed in each of the suc-
ceeding trips, which were to Hellgate Power Station of the New York Electric Light and Power Company,
and to the Kearny Plant of the Seahoard By-Product Corporation. In each instance the attendance sur-
passed the expectations ofthe plants to he inspected, necessitating much larger groups than would ordinarily
Also, the home meetings were very well attended by six times the number present in past seasons. At the
lirst meeting of each term an educational picture was shown, which was exccllentl received. All other
meetings were limited to lectures by interested alumni and papers presented by memfiers.

The Castle Stevens Club
HE Castle Stevens Club was organized to create a spirit of good fellowship among the
students living in the Castle. This is the eighth year of its existence, and its membership
includes all those who live in the former Stevens home. '
The Club promotes co-operation among its members, especially in scholastic work, so that
the upperclassmen can help the first-year men over the hard spots in the course. It also
creates an interest in the "college life" and activities. lt is largely responsible for the record
its members are making on the various teams and in the other college organizations.
The Castle Club started the social season at Stevens with a very enjoyable informal dance.
The enthusiasm of the students insures many active and successful years in the future.

The Interfraternity Council
I-IE Stevens Interfraternity Council is the organization through which the nine member
fraternities co-operate among themselves, with the National Interfraternity Conference
and with the Institute. Its organization was first effected in 1918, and its solidity and in-
fluence have grown steadily ever since. Each member is represented on the Council by one
Senior and one Junior delegate. Among the activities of the Council are annually revised
rushing rules, interfraternity., scholastic and athletic competition, and an interfraternity
This year the Council decided on a policy of holding its meetings at the various houses of
the members, instead of at the Castle as was the previous custom. The Senior and Junior
delegates hold the first part of their monthly meeting at different houses. The latter part of
the meeting is attended by all members at the House that plays host to the Senior delegates.
The Council provides a forum for the discussion of fraternity problems, an association for
protecting and promoting fraternity interests and an instrument for the development of
co-operation among the fraternities themselves and between the fraternities and the college.
The growth of interfraternal accord and the interchange of helpful service has been of
tremendous value to both the fraternities and the college.

' Dean J. C. Wegle,
of the fact that the runner-up was so close upon the trail of the winner,
the donor of the awards, donated his third award to meet the occasion.

The Interfraternity Scholarship Trophy
PLACQUE TROPIIY CUP
Tnovny woN BY Tumi-x or Pl L.-uinn,-x PHI
HE ,lnterfraternity Scholarship Trophy is annually awarded to the one fraternity among
the nine member fraternities in the lnterfraternity Council which maintains for that
year the highest scholastic average. The winning house receives possession of the trophy for
the ensuing year and also has its Greek characters inscribed upon it. Any fraternity winning
the trophy for three years gains permanent possession of it. This is the second of the Inter-
fraternity Scholarship Trophies and is the gift of Dean .l. C. Wegle. The first trophy was
won permanently by Theta Upsilon Omega, who also won the second trophy in its first year
of competition. I
Pi Lambda Phi was the winner last year. Using the old system of marking, this house was
six points above its nearest rival, Phi Sigma Kappa. This is the second time that the winner
has had its name inscribed upon a trophy, and marks a continuation in the scholastic
domination by the younger and smaller fraternities at Stevens.
As a further incentive for fraternity scholarship, Dean Wegle made another gift to the
Council in the form of an individual placque to be awarded to that member of a member
fraternity whose scholastic average shall have been the highest of all members of the fra-
ternities in the Council. This year the placque was so hotly contested. that its donor deemed
it advisable to add a second place cup to the one in competition.

October 27, 1928
Secretary, Interfraternity Council,
Stevens Institute of Technology.
Dear Mr. Secretary:
ln my association with the various fraternities represented on the campus for the past
few years, in visiting some of the houses, and in my formal and informal discussions of
problems regarding fraternities, I have come to the conclusion that it would not be amiss for
me to send you some of my personal views on certain phases and conditions of fraternity
life as I have found them at the Institute.
I wish to take this opportunity to commend the members of the fraternities as a whole,
represented on the Council for their splendid record for the academic year 1927-1928,
realizing only too well that behind the multiplicity of college activities stand the fraternity
men who carry an unusual share of the main burden of directing and engaging in these
activities and that any criticism of their scholarship must be modified by the recognition of
I firmly believe that the fraternities on our campus stand for the best things in College life,
that the older members exercise a wise supervision over the younger ones and that as
responsible leaders of your Chapters, you can, and yo11 do educate the newer members along
lines where they cannot elsewhere be reached and thereby enrich their lives permanently.
Much is written in criticism of the moral life and standards of a fraternity man. The act
of one youth or a small grou is often reported as typical of all, and is held up as a good
example of bad conduct. I beiieve that such conclusions are highly unfortunate and are an
injustice to the fraternity man.
I am not only conscious of the fact that the members of our fraternities are the nucleus
from which all college spirit derives its greatest stimulus, but I am also aware of the fact that
the fraternities have been in an attitude of entire co-operation with the Institute, which I am
certain would have a much more serious administrative problem without you.
. I fear my views and opinions may be criticized as trite and conventional, but they possess
at least, the virtues of sincerity, for:
I have respect for the College Fraternities.
I have respect for the leader of a Chapter who can keep in touch with a number of
collegiate men under his guidance from various places and bring them through College life
better men than when they started.
I have respect for the man who joins a fraternity and makes his way through College.
l have respect for a group of young men who bind themselves together by a voluntary oath
of Brotherhood, taken without coercion, to live, to play and to work together in daily contact
and to assume, in co-operation with the group, the obligations of the individual, and finally,
I have respect for an organization that can take a raw Freshman and bring him through to
the end an asset to his Fraternity and to his College, who can make him a full-fledged
active Brother-"four years longi'-so that when he receives his degree it will mark him as
"one who finishes what he starts."
Most sincerely yours,
,I. C. WEGI.E,

Probably no LINK has received such assistance in time of stress as has this volume. We
are very grateful-
To Assistant Dean John Charles Wegle, without whose aid and counsel the LINK of 1929
could not have been published.
To Doctor Davis and Mr. James Creese.
To Dean Furman for his thoughtful consideration.
To Miss Enid May Hawkins, Librarian of Stevens Institute of Technology.
To Miss Abbott, who supplied the very necessary athletic statistics.
To the Stevens Chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon.
To members of the Stute and Stone Mill Boards, who have rendered invaluable assistance
in proof reading and literary contributions.
To Robert A. Cole, Robert W. Emott, Robert H. Meystre, and Warren F. Teigeler for a
large number of photos.
To Mrs. Ferris and Miss Scott for assistance in typing.
To Charles Gerard Crosby, who devoted much of his spare time to typing for the LINK.
To Robert L. Vance, William J. Peterson, Warren N. Riker, and William R. Darbee, for
timely art contributions.
To Samuel Weiner for several attractive posters for the Circulation Department.
To the Sophomore candidates, whose help in typing, write-ups, and odd jobs was in-
dispensable to the Board.
There have been times when it seemed as though the LINK of 1929 could never be finished.
A prodigious amount of work had to be done-and the Board sacrificed time and pleasure
to do it. The Editor is deeply thankful to the Board for the long hours of night work which
every member did. The results of their labors are apparent to the reader.

Probably the most gratifying and lasting reward for
work well done is the realization of success that has
attended one's efforts.
Surely, the Staff of the 1929 LINK must take con-
siderable pride in the successful completion of this
excellent book. They have done good work and we
heartily congratulate them on the highly pleasing result.
As printers of the 1929 LINK, we cannot help but feel
a certain degree of pride in the fact that this is only
one of the many editions of the LINK we have had the
pleasure of printing - a pride based upon the realization
of continued confidence placed in our ability to co-oper-
ate with and aid the Year Book Staff.
We hope that this confidence will continue and that it
will be our privilege to place the facilities of our organi-
zation at the service of each new LINK Staff for many
years to come.

From its first establishment in 1870, Stevens
Institute of Technology has offered consistently
one course in the fundamentals of engineering to
provide basic training for the practice of the
profession in its several branches. It was among
the first American colleges to grant the degree
of Mechanical Engineer and it has continued to
give only that degree to its graduates. In fifty-
seven years, since the admission of the first
students, the College has graduated more than
three thousand men whose subsequent careers
have taken them into all fields of engineering
practice-mechanical, civil, chemical, electrical
and industrial engineering.

ESSAY ON FLEAS
Fleas are quite elusive things,
They move without the use of wings,
They hop around and skip and jump
And when they bite it leaves a lump.
Though with fieas I've had no dealings,
Still I hear they hurt your feelings.
They tickle the skin and bite you, too,
And stick with you whatever you do.
And though they're not so very big,
Whenthey bite you have to dig.
There are lots of things I'd have on me
Before I'd want a hungry flea.

confident of attaining it.
OUR SUPERIOR ANTHRACITE is carefully loaded

HISTORY LESSON NO. 1
In Spain, we're told, in days of old
There lived a man of doubtful fame
If you don't mind we'll be so bold
And as much as we can,explain the name
Of that mathematical, hypothetical
He spent his time in every clime
And sailed over every sea
Until one day "I'll bet a dime
That the world is round," said he
That mathematical, hypothetical
So he set sail, in a powerful gale
He soaked his socks in a four quart pail
And he soaked his underwear, too,
That mathematical, hypothetical
He washed his feet, he was very neat
But never a bath took he
He wasn't due to perform this feat
That mathematical, hypothetical
Oh, he reached the shore like nine before
And called it the U. S. A.
But landed at San Salvador
That's what the histories say
Of that mathematical, hypothetical
So posterity, including me
Did honor old Colombo
They named a town as you can see
In Columbus in Ohio
After that mathematical, hypothetical
