While it affords protection at the minimum cost the security is absolute. It avoids the technical liability of the American legal reserve system, and all its policies have incorporated in them the statutory British safety clause, which has been tested for centuries. The Fidelity has over $60,000,000 insurance in force, has paid nearly $3,000,000 in losses, has saved to its policy- holders about $5,000,000 as compared with the cost in legal reserve companies, and has a surplus accumulation of $1,500,000.

To you the Class of ' 97 beg leave to present the XII volume of the Swarthmore College Annual. To the Board of Editors it has been Love ' s Labor, and we trust it may not be Lost. Feeling the responsibility of our position, it has been our constant aim to represent every phase of college life in its true and accurate light. If for a moment, then, you will forget the cares of a busy world and permit us to draw aside the curtain, we shall earnestly endeavor to present to you that drama, as acted on the stage, so dear to every Swarthmore heart. Our play is one of un- ceasing interest, of new plots, acted out each day. Here we have our heroes and our heroines, and here also are characters of minor importance. But all alike are subject to mistakes ; we all have our faults, and if, perchance, dear reader, some little act of yours be here recorded, if in our " friendly digs " we sometime strike your tender heart, we pray you be not wroth, but receive it in the spirit it is given, since we but hold the mirror up for other eyes. It has been our desire and may we say that we will feel our duty done if we give to all a comprehensive knowledge of Swarthmore, an insight into her Literary, Athletic, and Social organizations, the extent to which each is developed, and the standing of our College in the collegiate world. To those who have so kindly aided us in our publication, we extend our sincere thanks. And in after years, when we are severed from the asso- ciations which now bind us so closely together, when the tiny tendrils of our Aldworth ivy (a gift to ' 97 from the late great Poet Laureate), shall be twining upward, ever clinging closer to these granite walls, then may this, our Halcyon, ever remain as an offering and a token of gratitude from ' 97 to her Alma Mater. The Editors. 7 A Sketch of the Life of Dr. Richard Jones. the age of fifteen Dr. Jones became teacher of a public school, where many of the pupils were older than himself. After two terms of teaching he entered the Grinnell Academy, where he won the medals for scholarships both years he was there. Next he attended Iowa College at Grinnell, Iowa. While there Dr. Jones won the Shakespeare prize, and also oratorical prizes. In ' 78 he was graduated from the classical course, and in ' 81 took the degree of A. M. For seven years Dr. Jones was principal of a high school in Iowa. Four years after his graduation from college, he was offered the presidency of a college just founded and now in a flourishing condition, but he was not free at the time to accept the proffered promotion. The summer vacations during the early part of his career, Dr. Jones spent in traveling in the West, and he has visited nearly every State in the Union. In 1 88 1 he was married to Miss Carrie Grinnell, the youngest daughter of the Hon. J. B. Grinnell, founder of the city, a friend of Horace Greeley, Wendell Phillips, John Brown, and other active Abolitionists. His home was a station on the underground railway for the fugitive slaves. Dr. Jones prizes highly a bed upon which John Brown once slept, and a book-case, a wedding gift of Wendell Phillips. In 1887 he was elected Professor of English Literature in the Illinois State Normal University, where he remained four years. His success there may be judged from the extracts from a letter written by President John W. Cook, of the Illinois State Normal University, " intended only to hint to you my estimation of this most admirable and attractive man. " President Cook writes: " Few men that I have ever known could so succeed in arousing an interest in literature. . . . The qualities that rendered Dr. Jones so successful are : First, his absolute sincerity and sympathetic devotion to the interests of his pupils. Second, his enthusiastic nature, for which he 8 may be indebted, perhaps, to his Welsh ancestry. Third, his evenness of temper and unfailing kindness. I never knew a man so remarkable in this particular. Fourth, Dr. Jones has been a hard student ever since I have known him, and he has been informed in regard to the subjects he has attempted to teach. " The summer of 1889 Dr. Jones spent in Europe, and in 1891 he went abroad with his family. They made a home in Oxford, Heidelberg, Munich, and Dresden, and traveled, to some extent, throughout the conti- nent. In July, ' 93, Dr. Jones took the degree of Ph. D. at the Univer- sity of Heidelberg, and became Professor of English Literature at Swarth- more in January, 1894. Under Dr. Jones, literature is not merely a collection of literary mas- terpieces, but is a criticism of life, it is a record of life ' s struggles, its vic- tories and failures. It affects every student ' s view of life, and the study of literature is thus not a diversion for idle hours. As President Cook has said. Dr. Jones is informed upon the subject which he teaches, and he requires his classes to think deeply, to think broadly, and to think exactly. He pos- sesses, to a peculiar degree, the power to interest his classes, and he rarely fails to arouse their enthusiasm over whatever selections of literature he takes up with them as a study. He is ever ready to advise, to explain, to help, but he requires work. This summer of 1895, Dr. Jones spent in European travel, and visited many distinguished university men of England and Germany. From the home of Lord Tennyson he brought an ivy for the Class of ' 97. His writings comprise The Ethical Element in Literature, published in 1891 ; The Growth of the Idylls of the King, a scholarly and valuable record of the development of Tennyson ' s masterpiece, published in 1894; and articles written, from time to time, for American, English, and Ger- man magazines. This is a mere sketch of the beginning of a man ' s life. Dr. Jones accomplishes what he attempts ; he is a man of character, ability, and influ- ence ; his life is before him, and we may well believe that the world will be richer and better because of his life. 9 Swarthmore College, SWARTHMORE, Pa.

" 10 Swarthmore College. its origin, and some notes upon its early history. By Edward H. Magill. CHAPTER in. T the opening of the fifth year of the College, in the autumn of 1873, four of the six members of the first graduating class re- turned as resident graduates. Of these, L. Maria C. Pierce, A. B., was appointed Assistant Instructor in German and in English Branches; Elizabeth C. Miller, A. B., Assistant Instructor in French and in English Branches, and Esther T. Moore, A. B., Assistant Instructor in Mathematics; while Helen Magill, A. B., pursued her studies toward a second degree. The Faculty of seven continued the same as the previous year. The whole number of officers of government and instruction now reached 26, and the whole number of students 269, of whom 93 were members of the college classes, the rest being members of the Preparatory school. It will be observed that there continued to be a steady increase in the number of college students in proportion to those in the Preparatory school. The development of the college proper, until it could take full rank with its sister colleges much longer established, continued to be kept steadily in view. To this end the pursuit of one of the three regular courses of study now provided, the classical, the scientific, and the engineering course, was constantly encouraged, with a result that about 87 per cent, of the college students were following one of these three courses, the rest, through various causes, being classed as irregular. The views of the Man- agers upon this subject are thus expressed in their report for this year : " It II will be observed that nearly all of the students are pursuing one of the regular courses provided, and this is desirable ; both for the interests of the College, and of the individual students, who almost invariably make more satisfactory progress when pursuing a regular course, even for a short time, without any idea of graduation, than when they select all their studies for themselves. Of course the Elective is so far combined with the Regular system that the Electives increase as the students advance in their course, and in the Junior and Senior classes the studies are largely elective. Upon the same principle, the Electives are very few in the Preparatory school, and students in that school are expected to pursue the regular work of the classes in which they are placed, " . . . " It is a serious error to suppose that the pursuit of a select course is adapted to immature minds that espe- cially need the advantages of systematic training in a well-arranged course of study. " The increasing number of students, and the limited capacity of the College turned the attention of the Managers at this time toward the erec- tion of separate homes for the professors upon the College grounds. But some time elapsed before taking a step in this direction by erecting a house near the west end of the College for the President and his family. The way has not even yet seemed open to taking further steps, although to some minds it still seems feasible, and exceedingly desirable. The satisfactory experience of Cornell University in this respect would seem to be an exam- ple well worthy of imitation. During this fifth year, the first after the College had reached the period of graduating its first class, irregularities of discipline and of management, almost necessarily attendant upon the founding of a new institution, began to disappear, upon which point the Managers say in their report for this year : " While the intellectual training of the students has been a subject of anx- ious care, and their physical well-being secured by regular and appropriate exercise, their moral and spiritual welfare has been sedulously guarded, and, as a tangible result, the discipline of the institution was never in a more satisfactory condition. The students are daily learning the great lesson that those are best governed who are taught to be a law unto themselves. " 12 ... " The principles of our religious society are taught in that most effec- tive of all ways, the lessons of daily life and example, while spoken words, in season, are not neglected. The Managers feel deeply impressed with the conviction that they would be reporting but a part, and that the least im- portant part of the work which is being accomplished at Swarthmore, were no allusion made to the religious training which the students here receive. " It is believed that the more than two decades of experience which have elapsed since these words were uttered have confirmed the judgment of the Managers then expressed. At the close of this year seven students were graduated, five in the classical and two in the scientific course. We now come to consider the sixth year of the College (1874-5), which opened with the same seven members of the Faculty as the preced- ing, strengthened by the well-deserved appointment of Susan J. Cunning- ham, now appointed full Professor of Mathematics, and to a seat in the Faculty of Government. Although without the title, she had practically performed the duties of Professor of Mathematics since the opening of the College in 1869. Of the four resident graduates of the preceding year, three continued to occupy the same position as instructors the present year, and Helen Magill, A. B., was appointed President ' s Secretary and Instruc- tor in Gymnastics. A few other changes were made in the Department of Instruction, but to refer to each by name would transcend the limits of this chapter. The appointment at this time of Dr. Joseph Thomas, LL. D., as non- resident Professor of English Literature, whose lectures were so highly enjoyed, and whose scholarly influence in the College was so profoundly felt for a number of years, must not be passed over in silence. I am sure that the Alumni and ex-students of those earlier years would never pardon the omission if I should not give him, even in this hasty and imperfect sketch, a passing word. Long shall we all remember his kindly, genial smile, his encouraging words, his striking maxims, and that fullness of his subject and familiarity with it which reminded one constantly of his oft- repeated words, " r embarrars de richesses, and of which he was himself so conspicuous an example. Peace to his ashes ! The good old man ! 13 When shall we meet his like again ? May we all profit by his beautiful example ! Profundity of thought, thoroughness of research, and a simplicity that was truly childlike, were alike the characteristics of the two non-resi- dent Professors that Swarthmore was so fortunate as to claim as hers at this period — Dr. Joseph Thomas and Dr. Joseph Leidy. Although the limits of this chapter will not permit an extended allu- sion to the great loss which the College suffered this year in the death of three valuable members of the Board, all called home within the period of four months, the honored and beloved names of Anna M. Hopper (the daughter of Lucretia Mott), that strong, clear intellect, united with great practical ability, qualifying her for a wide field of usefulness in the active government of the College ; William Dorsey, whose voice was so frequently heard in our earlier conferences in behalf of the College, and whose dis tinct utterances always carried irresistible conviction to doubtful minds, and S. B. Worth, one who contributed largely to the material interests of Swarthmore, and was one upon whom we could always confidently call in cases of real need — these three friends, I say, whose abiding interest in Swarthmore so thoroughly united them in life, and who in their death were not divided, must have here at least this passing word. During this sixth year the number of college students reached 99, being an increase over the number of any previous year. Keeping in view, as always, the full development of the college proper, a continued effort was made so to arrange the courses of study as to give satisfaction to the largest number, and to encourage regularity on the part of the students in the pursuit of these courses, both for their own advantage and the advan- tage of the College as well. Upon this point the Managers speak as follows in their report for the present year : " Great care is taken to encourage all students, as far as possible, to pursue one of the regular courses of study provided. Of the few who are irregular, some are preparing to enter the regular course next year, others having but a short time to remain with us, are devoting that time to special branches in which they are most deficient, or which they expect to find most useful in the pursuits in which they are soon to be engaged. Our 14 views expressed last year are still unchanged, that, even for those intending to take a short course, the regular work of the class to which they belong is, upon the whole, the most advantageous ; the three full courses of study now open to our students, the Classical, and the two branches of the Scien- tific course, the Mechanical and the Chemical, furnishing all the elec- tives that can, with advantage, be chosen, or that could reasonably be desired. " Of the 99 students this year 86 were pursuing entirely regular courses, and several of the others hoped to become regular before the close of the year. This indicated a healthy intellectual condition of the College. It was at the beginning of this year that a real commencement was made of diminishing the number of classes in the Preparatory school by dropping the Third, or lowest section of Class C. This seems to us now like a very small beginning, leaving as it did 44 in Class A, 49 in Class B, 58 in Class C, and 11 unclassified, or 162 in all in the Preparatory school ; but it was a beginning, and it has gone on steadily until now, just twenty years later, all of the classes of the Preparatory school are gone, and we have a number of good Friends schools over the country which are pre- paring for Swarthmore, including the latest organized, and which ranks among the best, the excellent Swarthmore Grammar School in this town, which prepares students well for our Freshman class. This is the de- sideratum which so many of us have long desired, and which we rejoice to see at last successfully accomplished. The heads of our present excellent and advanced departments of Physics and Chemistry will smile to read this humble statement sent out this year : " A course upon Physics and one upon Chemistry have been opened this year for the first time, and are delivered weekly to Class A. These two courses are open to any of the members of the Preparatory school. " But they must remember that that was the day of small things, and that " great oaks from little acorns grow. " It was in this sixth year also that the Department of Free-hand Draw- ing was remodeled, and the modern system introduced of studying the laws of perspective in a practical way, copying at once from models and from 15 natural objects instead of pictures ; the result of which was from that time a rapid advance in that interesting and important department. Senior and Junior Study Rooms were opened this year, but with no marked degree of success ; and the separate study of students in their own rooms grew more and more in favor, until now it is universal, and all gen- eral study rooms for College classes are avoided, greatly to the advantage of all concerned. The President ' s house, before referred to, was begun in the summer of this year, and occupied early in the following spring, giving rooms for several more students in the College. Also the West Dale property, adjoining Swarthmore grounds, a farm of ninety-three acres, was purchased at this time for the sum of 24,000, by the liberal donations of a number of friends of the College. Of the fifteen students who graduated at the close of this year, eight took the Classical and five the Scientific course. Another call was made this year for the establishment of a permanent endowment fund to aid in the education of students in limited circum- stances. Although the small fund available at that time has since been largely increased, it is still quite insufficient to meet the pressing demands upon it, and it offers to the friends of the College one of the acceptable means of furnishing the institution with needed aid at the present time. We would remind friends again, in the words of the Managers uttered twenty years ago, and equally true to-day, that : " It costs large sums of money to build and equip a college, and still larger sums to endow it in such a manner that all of its departments may be thoroughly organized, its various professorships properly filled, and that it may answer fully the highest end for which it was designed.

We cannot appreciate your service too much, for it is a human frailty to learn by the conspic- uous faults of others, rather than by their perfect lives. And so all of us (with the possible exception of ' 98) have profited by your con- duct and have reason to be grateful to you. In return for your service to us we should like to help you, and so we take this opportunity to show you yourselves " as in a looking-glass, " and we hope that the process will bene- fit you — if you are capable of being benefited. And that last remark suggests to us the cause of most of your ridiculous conduct. You are too conceited to realize that there are any other people at college besides yourselves. Very appropriately from your point of view at least, you said in your Halcyon: " Not long were we in making the college halls our own. " You thought you could take possession of every- thing, but " pride goeth before a fall, " and recent events in your history have proved the truth of the saying. It was like you, ' 96, to place your- selves on a par with the Seniors last year, and commence wearing caps and gowns. We suppose that the ones who strutted about in their new feathers felt very important, but alas ! you were like the young rooster who went forth to parade his charms and was caught in a rainstorm — you looked very foolish afterward. It has been your great desire to excel the other classes in every way, and in some things you have succeeded admirably. The first is your ability to conduct your class-meetings in the style of a grand embranglement. X).Ke.h: Cu 2 yfz cu. Can you never agree among yourselves, except in the desire to lord it over others? In that, truly, you have a strong bond of unity ! If we remember rightly, you criticised ' 95 for wire-pulling, but there, again, your ambition to excel made you forget to be consistent, and you have become notorious for that very thing. Your Halcyon staff was a good example. Unfor- tunately, however, so?ne of your politicians, although zealous, employ methods entirely too crude, which even a Freshman can see through. One more of your characteristic acts we must speak of, and then we shall leave you to ponder over the picture of yourselves as others see it. In your usual grandiloquent style you announced in The Phmtiix that the ' 96- ' 98 Reception would be held First month i8th. It never occurred to you that it might be well to consult the Faculty about the date, did it ? And so your pride had another fall, for that evening we entertained the Freshmen. Well, good-bye, ' 96. Our best wishes for your improvement will go with you when you leave our Alma Mater. 23 Class of ' 96. OFFICERS. Presidents : Philip Sheridan Knauer, ist Term; Philip Sheridan Knauer, 2d Term.

" E are sorry to see, ' 98, that you have imbibed a little of the spirit of your allies and are quiie prone to blow your own horn. We have seen the asphaltum, the gymnasium, and the fence marred by the characters " ' 98 " in large figures, and you even attempted to put a flag on the dome in one hour of jubilee — but it did not remain there long, did it? This spirit of self- lauda- tion is childish, to say the least, and what great achievements you have to be so proud of are not evident. Certainly you have not distinguished your- selves on the track or in the field ! Who won the ' 9 7- ' 98 foot-ball game last year? ' 97. Who won the Sophomore-Freshman sports? ' 97. Who defeated you in hockey? ' 97. We spare you further questions of this nature, for the answers cannot be pleasant for you to hear. It is well, ' 98, never to be meddlesome. You, with the aid of ' 96, tried to be when we were having our foot-ball picture taken. You sat for one yourselves, if we mistake not ; but why were none ever struck off ? We wonder what became of the plate ! Another thing you wani to be careful about is to foresee the end of your practical jokes before you play them. Stealing ice-cream may afford much amusement, especially when it involves the possibility of a forced vacation. In your attempts to be original and independent of all advice, you, who by your act had placed your allies in a very humiliating position, did nothing to help them in their extremity, but rather gloried in your obstinacy. Independence is a good thing, but loyalty is better. But, ' 98, we shall not be too hard on you, for altogether you have conducted yourselves very well since your arrival at Swarthmore, and have shown an active interest in your College, which is pleasant to contemplate. 39 Sophomore Class.

" T was with some curiosity that we looked you over on your arrival at Swarthmore, ' 99, for we naturally were anxious to know what our new friends and allies would be like. You have proven quite satisfactory — yes, quite so. You would have shown more wisdom had you asked our advice in regard to certain matters, but probably the experience has not harmed you. Experi- ence is a wise teacher, you know, although her tuition is often dearly bought. It may not be too late, even now, to give you a few hints about class government, for it is in this that you have made your greatest errors. 43 In the first place, it is unconstitutional to adopt the minutes of one special meeting at another special meeting. Then, it is not customary, particu- larly when the Constitution provides for it in another way, to elect by ballot a member of a reception committee. Such committees are appointed by the president. There is one thing more in regard to committees of which we should like to speak — perhaps the word ' ' banner " will suggest it — but we shall omit it, lest we make your faults too public. We display this delicate consideration for you, ' 99, because you are so very young. It is a delightful experience for us — it recalls our own childhood — to mingle with little lasses in short frocks, and lads of equally tender years. The charm and naivete of your youth are ever a fresh delight to us. Per- haps it is because of your juvenility that you have not yet displayed much athletic ability, but have been sadly defeated in hockey by all the other classes. It was rather hard on you ! However, you are learning rapidly in many ways, and we shall yet feel proud of you. We are glad to see that some of you now give texts in Meeting instead of each one waiting for his neighbor to rise, as you did at first. Again we tender you our help and advice, and hope that you will accept them in the friendly spirit in which they are offered, for the other classes might be more critical of your mistakes and not make allowances, as we do, for our little friends. 44 Freshman Class.

HE Scientific Society was organized in March, 1895, later receiving the name of the Joseph Leidy Scientific Associa- tion of Swarthmore College, the object being to keep abreast with the discoveries of the scientific world. The work includes the study of the five sciences, — Astronomy Biology, Physiography, Chemistry, and Physics. The pro- grams of the meetings, the interesting character of which is shown by the full attendance, both from the college and the borough, consist of a report from an instructor in each of the above branches. These reports contain an account of some recent discovery in the respective sciences. There are also papers read on topics of scientific interest, followed by discussions from the society. The executive committee consists of a committee of three from each department, one instructor and two students. Besides the students and officers of the college, residents of the bor- ough of Swarthmore are eligible to membership. The meetings are held in Science Hall, on the first Fifth day evening of each month of the collegiate year. 58 I O 18 80- E CBAE EUJCTTCn Ph REORGANIZED AS THE JOSEPH LEIDY LITERARY SOCIETY 1895 OFFICERS.

T is the opinion of many that Friends of the present day, espe- cially the younger members, do not have a sufficient knowl- edge of the history and principles of their Society. With this in mind a few leaders organized, in the fall of 1894, the Young Friends ' Association. All interested in the Society of Friends may become members. The association is divided into the follow- ing sections : History, Literature, and Current Topics relating to Friends ; and each member chooses the section in which he desires to work. The regular meetings are held in the college parlor, on the evening of the third First day of each month during the college year. OFFICERS. President, Dk. William I. Hull.

HE Latin Seminary, founded in 1885 by Professor Rolfe, after the plan of the German " Seminars, " has continued with uninterrupted success to the present time. The organization of the past session, that of 1 894- ' 95, was divided for greater convenience into two sections, each section supplementing the class-work of its members. This year finds it once more united. It intends, under the direction of Professor Price, to study that part of the local history of Rome, with its public buildings, its mythology, and its art, which cannot, because of the limited time, be acquired in the class-room. Professor Price intends the Seminary to gather all information from two sources, one, immaterial things, comprising languages, Roman laws, social customs, etc., the other, material things, embracing works of art, coins and medals, stone clubs of all kinds, manuscripts, and inscriptions on stone and bronze tablets. The meetings are held monthly. 62 OFFICERS. President, Prof. Ferris W. Price. Seaetary, HELEN S. MARSHALL, ' 9 MEMBERS. Professor Ferris W. Price. ' 96. William I. Battin, Mary S. McDowell. Laura C.

Note, — The Epsilon Chapter of Pennsylvania of the Phi Beta Kappa Fraternity will be fully organized and established at Swarthmore during the coming College Commencement on Sixth Month Ninth, 1896. Dr. Edward H. Magill and Dr. Wm. Hyde Appleton, who are charter members of the Epsilon Chapter, have been instrumental in obtaining this honor for Swarthmore. The movement for establishing a chapter was begun in 1893, since which time members of the graduating class, who have been considered eligible to the Fraternity, have been chosen according to its rules. The members are elected for excellence of scholarship alone, the names being taken from the list of those standing in the first third of the class, in the Arts Department. In obtaining this grant Swarthmore has been recognized as holding that high standard of scholarship which is essential for the establishment of a chapter, and she may well pride herself as having taken one more step forward in her progress as a college. — Ed.

OR a number of years since the arrival of our faithful trainer, Dr. Shell, Swarthmore has, for a college of such small numbers, held an enviable position in athletics. The young man who is fortunate enough to come under the able guidance of our trainer has a perfect cycle of oppor- tunities for developing himself into a strong and healthy man. Starting with the long, hazy autumn afternoons as they gradually shorten into the cold, snappy weather of November, the time is occupied with foot-ball and its necessary training. Following this is a month of rest, which is enjoyed and appreciated by all. Then comes the work in the gymnasium, intermingled with fine skating on old " Crum. " Everything is utilized, as is shown by the hocky games between the classes, causing class enthusiasm and creating a healthy rivalry in our college world, beside affording the valuable training for mind and limb. Then follows a more recent feature in our training system, the game of Lacrosse. During the afternoon our front campus presents an unusually lively appearance, as we see from the college windows flitting hither and thither the gay garnet sweaters of the contestants. Later in the year, when the cold and disagreeable winds of March give place to the long, lazy spring days, our athlete with his spiked shoes and running costume is seen daily on the track, getting ready for the few final contests which are to try his nerve and muscle to their fullest extent. After repeated trials a number who have by hard, conscientious work developed their latent powers are chosen to represent their college in the State sports in competition with the other colleges of Pennsylvania. For the last three years this little chosen band has returned with a vic- tory to reward it for its efl ' orts. And as loyal supporters of the garnet we all hope, nay, fully expect as much again this year. With these sports ends our training for the year, and we go back to our homes only to return the next fall for another round of such healthful, vigorous life as is experienced at no time except in college days. 86 g Ci d p o a ' 2 g o K :3 o z O n n o M H • H Pi a w 2 s ° o 1 Pi n) CA c; O z 153 M !

The Faculty had fixed a day, When they were feehng rather gay, To choose a plan that would reveal Who was the champion of the wheel. So Whittierfield was made the place To have a two-mile cycle race ; The track was cleared of every weed For Profs, to make their greatest speed. Now there were six, good men and great, Who ' d fed a week on Supe ' s beefsteak, Until they thought they were in form To conquer hurricane or storm. They now were fixing for the fray, And to the pole hugged Dr. Day, While next to him with eyes cast down Was our own Prex of great renown. Our Physics Prof., the next in line. Was booked in this great race to shine. But when appeared one. Dr. Hull, His chances then seemed very dull. Next Dr. lones with beaming smile Looked incomplete without his tile, And last, that Prof who still will pun Was ready, and the race begun. They ' re off, and strained is every nerve. As in a bunch they round the curve. And now when Hoadley sets the pace The grand stand cheers him for his grace. The lead could not continue his. For Prexy soon did by him whizz. Although he did seem pocketed, Yet that was nought to such a head. The leaders now had reached a mile, But far behind Doc. Jones did smile As Hull and Day did take a sprawl, That quickly caused their hopes to fall. Picked up they were, and thrown aside To watch the others past them ride. But soon great horror met their sight — Professor Price the earth did smite. Now three alone were left to ride, And Prex and Hoadley, side by side, Were quite surprised to plainly hear The name of Jones in every cheer. " He can ' t be on us, " Prexy said. Approving, Hoadley moved his head. But Tones then briskly took a brace And gently smiling, won the race. io6 A Modern Pilgrim ' s Progress. TRANSITION. VOLUME, musty, worn, and old, I found— a volume large and gray, and bound " In Friendship ' s Name " — a volume filled with little souvenirs of days long past, of half- forgotten joys, of hopes and fears and loves that lived but for a day. But with the volume came a flood of tears, sweet memories crowded out the cares of life ; the volume closed, I fell asleep, and dreamed. And in my dream I saw a man, as he would say, a youth ; sweet Charity would say, in truth, a boy. As a madman he stood, and read in a mighty voice from a book which he grasped tightly in his hand. Now, this book wore a cover of garnet, and in the world ' twas known as the Halcyon. In it he read, and over it he pondered, and ever and anon he cried, " Whither away! whither to the glorious City of Degrees, to which this book pointeth ! " In this plight, therefore, he went home and broke his mind to his kin and to his friends, and thus he began to talk: " Oh ! my dear friends, and you the dwellers in my house, I am undone by reason of a conflict that dwells in my conscience and also in my thoughts ; no longer can I stay with you here, for unless some means of escape be found ruin and destruc- tion await all who dwell in this Region of Preps. " But they would not listen to him, and thought some frenzy distemper had got into his head. Now, one day, as he was reading in his book and sighing huge sighs, as was his wont, I looked and saw a man called Alumnus come toward him and ask, " What dost thou read? " He answered, " Sir, I read in this book of a glorious City of Degrees, and I would I were there, but I know not the way, and the thought of this thing makes me to cry. " Then did Alumnus give him a pamphlet bearing a seal and these words, Swarthmore College Catalogue. The man therefore read it and looking at Alumnus said, " Whither, must I fly? " Then said Alumnus (pointing with his finger), 107 " Dost thou see yonder granite door? " The man said, " No. " Then said the other, " Dost thou see yonder scrub-oak trees? " He said, " 1 think I do. " Then said Alumnus, " Keep those oaks in thy eye, and go up directly thereto, then shalt thou see the door, at which, when thou knockest, it shall be told thee what thou shalt do. " So I saw, in my dream, that the man jumped on his wheel and began to ride. The door swung open and into the presence of the J efs Regular was led by our Friend Hospitality, with whom he carried on much converse, and by whom he was led to the parlor of the Judge : here was Regular gently reminded of things necessary for his journey. Now I saw that the highway by which Regular had to go was fenced in on either side by restrictions, called Protection. Up this way, therefore, did burdened Regular ride, but not without much difficulty, because of the weighty condition that was on his mind. But not far did he ride when he reached a place called Room F, and full of the untold horrors, known as Examinations, through which Regular rode manfully, and at the other side met three dignitaries. The first gave him some marks, his burden fell and was lost. The second spoke to him of his duty and responsibility and left him to the third, who led him to a small office, supplied him with pencils, tablets, books, pens, ink, paper, etc., etc., and left him at the foot of an almost impassable mountain, the Freshman year. VERDANT AND GAY. At the foot of this mountain I saw Regular stop and look up. All he could see was a narrow path, rugged, rocky, and thorny, with, here and there, at great distances, tiny patches of green with a spring and a few trees, and at the end of each week ' s journey could be seen rows of hard benches where silent refreshment was served, unasked-for. Surely the path was not beautiful. Still, with many, many others. Regular started to seek what was beyond his view. On and on they rode, until the rugged path led into a beautiful valley. There they forgot their journey and danced and skated and played for a fortnight, then passed out of the valley into the thorny path, but many io8 there were who grew discontented with the path and went back, to seek forever, vaivlv — a valley of holiday fun. More and more rocky grew the way. A huge barrier, covered with burning pitch, intercepted the pathway ; some rode over it, some slipped under it, a few worked through it, and many stuck fast in the pitch. Poor Regular, torn, bruised, bleeding, but determined still, craw ed through with his wheel and stood half-way up the mountain. Here he stayed to mend his wheel, his mind, and his body. And then in my dream I saw him start again ; with new heart, new hopes, new life, he rode gayly up to the door of a beautiful palace. There was no need to knock, the door opened and into a new world Regular was ushered. From room to room he wandered — now stopping to hear a great man talk; now serving him with tea; now hanging banners in that room, and arranging chairs and palms in this ; monkeying with the Ferris wheel here, pointing " beyond the horizon there. " From beauty to beauty he went till I saw him halt on the threshold of a dark, damp chamber, and turn to go out ; but it was of no use, he was painfully reminded of the presence of gum. Darkness was everywhere, he could see nothing and feel only squares and angles and circles; shafts and blocks and polyhedrons; lines and points and cylinders; centres, plusses, and ZZ " ' s. For hours and hours I watched poor Regular. Helpless, he crouched and listened to the groans of his companions, perhaps he would be there now had not one Gumption again led him to the light ; and forever Regular left the hideous nightmare in the darkness, to worship, at his favorite shrine, the ' ■Idylls of the King. " STATELY AND GRAND. Now I saw Regular follow the way and find himself a stately courtier in the Court of Letters. The domains of the Court of Letters extend beyond the seas, beyond the hills, beyond the stars. Everywhere its courtiers may see the records of its immortals, may trace the glorious pic- tures of Milton, may catch a glimpse of Dante ' s Divine Vision. Now I saw Regular and his companions search for a place to leave their records. Some sought the stage, and with mighty voices and appalling gestures 109 turned their contemporaries white with wonder and alarm. Some sent forth The Phcenix ' N ' i messages to mankind, high-sounding messages of what is what was, and what is yet to be. Others whetted their wit in the Hal- cyon days of spring, and still others tried to kick their records in the sod. All worked with such ardor, however, that their bodies grew weary and worn, and I saw them smile as they prepared themselves with slumber, refreshment, and black robes to complete the journey to the City of Degrees. And I saw Regular ride with his companions on board a balloon that was to carry them higher, higher, higher, even unto their haven. But as- they entered the balloon, I heard one say, " He that falters when but half-way up shall fall back even to the beginning. " But they started on their journey, and from the greatest even to the least of them acted like kings and queens and dukes ; fools and clowns and jesters ; ariels and ghosts and apparitions ; Jews, maids, and unavenging sons. This they did with such persistence that the balloon was turned into a modern Tower of Babel, and glad was each one when the acting was o ' er. Then I saw Regular surrounded with huge folios of uncertain age, and without them he was never seen. Now, after the journey was half made and the few that faltered fell back, Regular and his companions began to write. They wrote and wrote and grew weary of writing, and they made massive volumes to present at the City of Degrees. But the time was approaching for them to leave the balloon, and much danger was there in alighting. Huge bags of lead were tied about their necks, and the burden was so great they could not move, but pulled and jerked and labored with the ropes that bound the bags to their necks. Thus did they labor for five days and five nights, when the ropes broke and the bags fell. Then, with much ceremonious discourse, with laugh- ing and singing and great joy, Regular and his companions were her- alded into the City of Degrees. But while they stood there, abashed by the awful presence of Choice and Possibility, the large gray volume fell with a crash. I awoke, and knew that I had dreamed ; yet half I dreamed was true. no Class of Ninety=seven, M. S. A. — Ministers Sound Advice. S. B. — Saintly Being. F. D. B. — Forever Double Bending. M. E.

The mile skating with the mile stone: — H and E. G. The valiant efforts of Dr. Hull to assist Prof. Furman to maintain her equilibrium. [Soliloquy overheard from the lips of a dejected maiden, who was ruefully eying the hockey game :] Where, oh, where has my little man gone, Where, oh, where can he be. With his stick in his hand, he rushes right on, Will he never come back to me? Kittenish Koeducation of the Grammar School Kids. Two dainty Lansdowne maidens, who by their abbreviated skirts and their skillful skating, caused many a heart to flutter beneath the gay garnet sweaters. One more unfortunate, Weary of breath. Tries hard to learn to skate, Comes near to death. Lifts himself scornfully. Gets up with care, Thinks very mournfully. He ' s had his share. Tired of experiments, Thinks it all o ' er. Jumps up with violence. Rushes to shore. Oh, it was pitiful ! Such was his lot. There on the creek so full. Skate he could not. 119 Skating on the Crum, HAT a bright, merry scene is presented every winter afternoon that the ice on the Crum is thick enough to bear the skaters ! Youths and maidens — yes, and older ones, too, those experienced in the art of skating, and those just learning — all join heartily in the fun, and their gay laughter and happy voices form a fitting accompaniment to the ring of the steel and the occasional deep boom of the cracking ice. Was there ever a sport so invigorating, so perfectly delightful as skating ! How smoothly and gracefully the couples glide onward ! Flying seems almost easy after that airy motion. All along the course they are seen, from the dam to the railroad bridge, wherever the Crum pursues its winding way — now between high, tree-covered banks and now between far-stretching hay- fields. Almost all wear gay caps and sweaters, which contrast brightly with the sombre background of leafless trees and dun-colored earth ; but the Swarthmore garnet predominates. Not all are skating straight ahead, however. Here and there, wherever an unusually smooth stretch of ice can be found, some one is practicing fancy strokes ; and at intervals, along the banks, are groups of twos, who have grown weary and must needs rest. Near the inn, on the float, and by the boat-house quite a number are usually gathered, some putting on and some taking off their skates, some watching the games of hockey, and others who have come with the sole aim of being sociable. What a happy, careless time it is ! Lessons and other duties are forgotten, and each one abandons himself to the spirit of the hour. And then the twilight bell rings. Oh ! that twilight bell ! The Bells. [With apologies to E. A. Poe.] Hear the ringing of the bells — Dinner bells ! What a lack of nourishment their melody foretells ! How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle, Through the halls so long and quiet, While the pies that oversprinkle All the kitchen, seem to wrinkle In a terror and a fright. Thinking hash, hash, hash, How our teeth we often gnash ! And when coming nearer, nearer, as our appetite impels. Oh, what smells, smells, smells, smells — Smells — such smells ! That our latest thought of turkey all common-sense dispels. Hear the First-day meeting bells. Solemn bells ! How our weary, careworn spirit frequently rebels, As their beat, beat, beat. In the drizzly, foggy rain, Calls us from our slumbers sweet To a hard and oaken seat In that meeting-house so plain ; Yet the texts, texts, texts That the Faculty expects. And each with faltering accents his motto softly tells As the calling bells, bells, bells — Bells — slow bells ! The misery of an hour as long as two foretells. 121 Cupid and Foot=BalI. Naughty Cupid, on his way From a church of stone so gray, Where two hearts he fast had tied With a vow and ring beside, To a field he idly strayed, Where a foot-ball game was played, Through the gateway entered in, Just to see which side would win. As he watched the struggling team Play their tricks, he found the scheme Into his next prank to pour All he knew of foot-ball lore. " All the maidens nowadays Have the college foot-ball craze, And, " said he " unless I can Make myself a foot-ball man, ' Twill be but a little while Ere plain Cupid ' s out of style. " So, to captivate all hearts, In foot-balls he hid his darts. On each goal he hung a bow, Ranged his foot-balls in a row, Then about him long he gazed, One small spheroid carefully raised. Till he saw a maiden gay With a young man ' s heart at play. 122 Oh, " said Cupid, " that ' s her game, I shall try to play the same. " Straight he aimed his arrow ' s head. To her heart it quickly sped. And the young man wonders why That coy look stole from her eye. Cupid following up his shaft Marked " a touch-down, " as he laughed. When her cheek was all ablush He said, " That ' s my centre rush, " Aimed again his foot-ball dart. And it pierced the maiden ' s heart. That same evening going home The young man was not alone, A rose within his overcoat, — She had worn it at her throat, And beside him through the street Walked the maiden fair and sweet. Laugh on laugh above them roll ; Naughty Cupid ' s scored a goal. The Mandolin Club of the East. Where is the Mandolin Club of the East? They ' ve the ability we ' ve not a doubt.

The most wonderful day of the year it seemed ; A day when ' twas good to be alive, For something then happened of which we ' d ne ' er dreamed. What could there be happ ' ning to cause such a noise, To cover our faces all over with smiles, To bring prolonged yells and shouts from the boys That really they might have been heard for some miles. There stood at the door of our college, so dear, A cart, not at all an unusual thing. But something there was in the cart, it is clear, That made with our shouting the college halls ring. Pianos for Swarthmore, it never could be ! Yes, really, in truth, I assure you, my friends. It was they that then caused the loud jubilee ; ' Tis upon them that now so much pleasure depends. Then to all those who kindly gave us such delight. We would give hearty thanks, and would wish they might know That we feel their great kindness we ne ' er can requite, And shall never forget what to them we now owe. X24 A Dream and What Came of It. (a SUNDAY-SCHOOL STORY.) A WEARY ladd was plodding o ' er his bookes, Yclad in robes for nightly studie free; At Homer and his lexicon he lookes, To make his pony and his text agree. This lad was younge and smarte as he could be, But the sadd humour loadeing his eyelids, As messenger of Morpheus, from the sea Casts slomb ' ring dew, the which to sleep them biddes, And from his mind all thoughts of Greek he quicklie riddes. Butt suddenly a site him much amazed — His pony sprouted legs and tail and heade, A prancing steed whiche at his master gazedde With flashing eyes. In accents bold he sayd : " Upon me mount; ride to thy doome full dread. " The lad obeyed, and off his brave steede flew, Nor stopped they once, as downward fast they sped. Till they had come into an horride view, The cave of " Shame " and faces, grinning ghastlie, them persew. So downward on their way they hurried stille. Past horrours dire till to a pitt they came Marked " Ignorance, " in which by his own wille The pony plunged, the lad held fast the mane ; Down, down he fell with dizzly, dazzled brane Into a countrie, " Land of Worthlessnesse, " " And here, " the pony said, " must you remane.

Once a skeleton stood in a museum case, And he whistled a tune, for to rest him his face, As he swayed back and forth on a hook in his head ; Then he looked at the ceiling, he sighed and he said : " Oh my life in this place is a horrible flunk And I think and I think, yet I get nothing thunk, And my head feels so vacant, so empty just now That I scarce have ambition to raise up a row. " In my chest is a feeling of longing and pain. As if something were gone and I wished it in vain, And I ' m homesick, I think, for the heart that I lost. " And he needed it soon, as he found to his cost. For a lovely gorilla within the next case Ever patiently stood with her neck in a brace. Of her smiling she seemed very artless and coy. But she ne ' er has been known to have smiled at a boy. Now these freaks fate has destined to fli rt through a crack, As did Thisbe and Pyramus, ages way back, So he stroked at the place where his beard ought to be, And he laughed to himself with cadaverous glee. Then he threw at the lady those glances that kill, Which would send to the heart of a mortal a thrill. She ' d have looked if she could, but she couldn ' t, you see. For it must not be thought she ' s from coquetry free. Still he smiles and he winks as he swings to and fro, But she does not know now and she never will know. Just how happy they ' d be if the boards were not there ; They would be such a very felicitous pair. 129 Morning Collection. Of all the hours of the day The best for quiet, steady work.

Now some there are who spend this time With books tight closed and distant gaze. And ' tis the purpose of this rhyme This idle habit to dispraise, To show how very wrong it seems To spend one ' s time in idle dreams.

So let us then work hard and well And thus all laziness repel. To Dr. Day. A Graceful Apology. Don ' t forget, Dr. Day, Don ' t forget, Or duties neglect.

A BAND of braver foot-ball men Could never have been found, Than those who worked so faithfully, And made us world-renowned. Our captain, he is Charlie Hodge, And he ' s a good one, too. For two long years he coached them well And carried Swarthmore through. In all those manly, well-earned games When we were forced to fight. Old Harper was on hand, you bet, And to the girls ' delight. 137 There ' s Shorty, too, who hustled hard, He ' s always in the fray, And though his face gets full of scars He ' s surely there to stay. Although he thinks he ' s often hurt, He ' s really pretty tough,. And Harry, in his place at guard, Is plenty good enough. In speaking of our plucky men, There comes the name of Fred, Who played so hard in every game. And work did never dread. When William Wooster struck a snag, His loss was great ' tis sure. But next year he will captain be. And victories great secure. O Darby, open wide your eyes, And do not hesitate, For you do, with your grit and nerve. Great masses dislocate. A long and slender youth we see, Whose nose has e ' er a guard, In every game he played right end, And tackled well and hard. Oh ! when you made the mighty V, ' Twas wondrous to behold How through the lines you shoved the man AVhose hair resembled gold. 138 A good and plucky player, he, But hard to understand Why that e ' er floating rib of his Does never come to land. The Moorestown youth of stature great. With locks of auburn hue, Was useful on the foot-ball field And always did his due. And loyal B. was in the game To lift the garnet high, And he did try his very best To lift it to the sky. O Marshall, you deserve great praise For punts you made so well. So many times you kicked the ball Our danger to expel. And now, dear Subs, we turn to you, " Napoleon, " " Chape, " and " Ike, " We thank you for the work you did. And pity all alike. The Council of the Gods. When Second-day was fading fast to-night The gods were summoned to th ' Olympian height. De Garmo Zeus, now punctual from his den, Leads on " the powers that be, " the two and ten. The day was dark, and on each brow two clouds The visage fierce of each divine one shrouds, For here in council will they now decide, rOh ! nit ! They ' ll scrap a while, then let it slide,) The awful doom of him who breaks the rule, The baby " prep. " who still should be at school. There, far apart and high above the rest, The Thunderer sat, the council thus address ' d : " Ye swellest of all gods, to you I speak. And each may listen while I tell the freak Which mortal man hath fallen in below. About their stately halls they missiles throw. They throw those things which we do fear to use When in blest scraps each other we abuse Presumptuous mortals dare — " Here, overcome, He sank upon his throne so quite undone, Moore Mercury must needs at once be sent For nectar lemonade, as is the bent Of the seraphic to relieve their care. Zeus quaffed the draught, then on the Goddess fair. Dean Juno, gravely smiled, and thus he spoke : 140 " Sweet queen of Heav ' n, dear lady of the skies ! Will thee now speak? Thee knows just how it lies. " Thereon she rose with trouble in her eyes, Tears in her voice and in her heart a sigh ; But ere she spoke, God Pluto standing nigh, On earth as Beardsley known, read from a stone, And told the deeds performed as they were known. Two nymphs brought back the tears by Juno shed. For the undying to closest thrift are wed. Whereon in trembling voice the Heav ' nly queen : " It is, indeed, a shame, " so said the Dean, " That high-born youths should thus such viands waste. What we provide seems not to please their taste. " Saturn Magill, now frowning stern, inquired, " Will some one tell what missiles have been fired? " " That hardened flour, which mortals crackers term, " Cunning Minerva said with lips set firm ; " If they displease thee, Zeus, send them away. If thee has gumption do not wait a day. That ' s what I think, " and thereto sat she down. " Now Miss Minerva differs much from me, " Said Superintendent Mars. " Economy Dictates the crackers go, and not the boys. " This latest word all god-like peace destroys. And right and left they rend ambrosial curls. And all around one awful tempest whirls, Till Zeus did seize Miss Mercury with might And hurled her headlong from the ethereal height. And thus and ever thus the mighty gods will fight. 141 " The Wicked Fleeth when no Man Pursueth ; " Or, The Wanderings of Three Scared Sophomores. Scene laid near Science Building, at 6 p. m. Dramatis Pe?-sonce : Count A ' iskniskki, Fountain Wilson, Sport Brown. Enter the three smging in chorus. A We ' re hungry and hollow, The ice-cream we follow ; And won ' t it be nice To eat water-ice. Note. — It may be well to explain that these three characters are all brave, fearless ' 98s, who entered the plot to buy Ninety-Seven ' s ice-cream. 142 I i the vieantune the cream has been conveyed from the protection of William to a more convenient place by the friends of these three valiant men. ' The Three _galloping to the freeze )- . We ' re in the scheme, Give us some cream. Count Viskniskki [calling Brown and Wilson into his confidence after each had grasped a brick of creajn ' . Friends, my knees do shake with fear, I think we ' d better disappear. Brown, | ' Tis well, for there I think I see, Wilson, j A Ninety-Seven after me ; And if upon us he should pounce, I fear that we should get the bounce. Count. Brave men you are ! Shall we by foot or trolley car ? Brown, ] I think on foot we ' d better go. Wilson, j The dog-gone trolleys run too slow. _They start off on a dead run, each carrying a brick of cream. The Three ) The cream is getting rather cold, in Chorus, j I think we ' d better lose our hold; For if we now should stop to eat, Some ghastly villain we shall meet. [Untouched the cream falls from their hands. Brown. I fear my hair is getting white, From this continuous, awful fright. Wilson [having a far-away look ' . My head ! My head is in a whirl. Oh ! once again to see that girl ! ViSK, ETC. You both have troubles, but don ' t fear. Remember always — Count is near. 143 Looking ahead they now see the lights of Media, and thinking that they are far enough away from the reach of the imaginary pursuers, weary, they sit down to cogitate. The Three. From college we are now away, And here till midnight we must stay ; So when the others softly sleep, We through the halls can gently creep, _Thi)iking that danger is over they return and sneak into College at 12.30 A. M., with the idea that they have done great a fid 7vo7idrous thifigs, but alas I They lost their sleep, they lost their cream.
