EORGE ARTHUR HOADLEY, after a boyhood and youth spent in the enviable life of the son of a New England farmer, prepared for college, partly while in attendance at the Fort Edward Collegiate Institution, and partly while teaching a district school in his native town. While a student at Union College, at Schenectady, N. Y., he pursued two courses, and at graduation in 1874 took the degree of A. B. and C. E. The degree of A. M. was conferred by his Alma Mater in 1877. In the fall of 1874 he became principal of the Argyle Academy, Argyle, N. Y., where he conducted a prosperous school for five years. In 1878 he accepted an appointment as principal of the Fort Edward Union School, a position which he held until the spring of 1883, when he received an appointment as principal of the High School in Florence, Mass. After a few years ' service in this school he was promoted to the Principalship of the Northampton High School, which position he held when in December, 1888, he was offered the Chair of Physics in Swarthmore College, which he now holds. Professor Hoadley is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Franklin Institute and its Electrical Section, and is at present the Vice-President of the College Faculty.

I HE College entered upon its seventh year in the autumn of 1875 under most favorable auspices. The institution was charac- terized by increasing stability, its general plan of organization was followed with but slight changes, and the corps of Profes- sors and Instructors remained nearly the same as the previous year. The dropping of the third division of Class C was received with general satisfaction by the friends of the College as giving promise of the abandoning of the Preparatory School, which has now, at last, after the lapse of two more decades, been entirely accomplished. It was during this seventh year that the arrangement was completed for conferring the degree of Bachelor of Literature upon graduates of what was named the Modern Classical Section. In this course the study of the Ancient Languages might be omitted, their place being taken by a fuller course in French, German, English, and Anglo-Saxon. Cornell University and the University of Min- nesota were then quoted as examples for conferring such a degree, and, as is well known, the practice is now widely extended among the colleges of the country. It was at this time that Anson Lapham, of New York, pur- II chased two perpetual scholarships for the sum of 10,000, and Deborah F. Wharton contributed $5,000 toward a fund for the education of those in reduced circumstances, especially those intending to teach in Friends ' schools. It was during this year that cases were furnished for the Students ' Library, belonging to the different literary societies, thus furnishing a nucleus for a valuable collection of books, the importance of which increases year by year. Again, in the autumn of 1876, the College opened its eighth year with its corps of Instructors but slightly changed. It was during this year that the degree of Bachelor of Science in Physics and Chemistry was first opened to students in Science, and a course in Medical Chemistry was established for the benefit of those intending later to pursue the study of medicine. Chem- istry was also now introduced as a required study in both sections. Classical and Scientific, of Class A of the Preparatory School. The facilities for in- struction in Mechanics and Engineering were considerably increased at this time, and our students took advantage, during this centennial year, of the display in this department in the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia. The general library of the College, now numbering nearly 3,000 volumes, was furnished with additional cases, and a Library Fund under the care of a committee of the Library, was called for in the Managers ' Report. A course of lectures, free to all friends of the College, was opened the present year, and a fund of $500 a year, to be set apart for this purpose, was reported among the needs of the College. The Managers close their report for this centennial year by a paragraph which may well be reproduced at this time. Its suggestions as to the need of a large permanent endow- ment fund are appropriate here and now, because they are never out of place. The report thus concludes : " In the conclusion of last year ' s report an appeal was made for the 12 establishment of a large permanent Endowment Fund at an early day, to be devoted to aiding those deserving students who could not otherwise obtain an education at Swarthmore. A few weeks after the appearance of that report, real estate valued at 25,000 was made over to the College for this purpose by our friend, Isaiah V. Williamson, who had already con- tributed largely toward this end. This, with other sums previously re- ported, is placed under the care of the Committee on Trusts, Endowments, and Scholarships, and the income only is to be used from year to year to aid such students as may make acceptable application to that Committee for assistance. If this Endowment Fund could be largely increased it would add greatly to the usefulness of the College. It is well known that those who reap the most benefit from a course of instruction in such an institution as Swarthmore, are frequently those of limited means, who are worthy can- didates for aid from such a fund. Nor would the great benefit to be derived from this source accrue to those only who receive the assistance. The in- fluence of a body of such students, who are likely to be those of mature age and earnest purpose, would give a higher tone to the whole College and do much to advance the standard of scholarship. " It was at the close of this year. Twelfth month 4th, 1876, that the first separate report of the Committee on Trusts, Endowments, and Scholar- ships was appended to the Treasurer ' s Report, showing that the funds in charge of the committee had then reached the sum of $ ' j 2,600. The last report of this committee, rendered Twelfth month ist, 1896, shows that the amount has now reached the sum of 1 2 48, 000. The ninth year of the College, 1877-7S, was opened with the same Faculty as the two previous years, except that Samuel S. Green was now made full Professor of Physics and a member of the Faculty, thus increasing the number to nine. The other officers of government and instruction for 13 this year numbered 13. The whole number of students in the College classes this year numbered 105, of whom 16 were in the Senior Class, and now, for the first time, the four sections — Classical, Modern Classical, En- gineering, and Chemical — were represented in this class. It will be of interest to our Students and Alumni to find here a reference to the " First Fall Contests of the Athletic Association of Swarthmore College, " which were held on Swarthmore grounds on the loth of Eleventh month of the present year, 1877. The officers of the Athletic Association at that time were : President and Treasurer, Lesley Hopper, ' 79. Vice-President, William P. Holcomb, ' 78. Recording Secretary, William P. Fender, ' 79. Assistant Secretary, Isaac R. Coles, ' 79. The difficult and responsible position of Matron of the College (since more appropriately named Dean), after the early resignation of Helen G. Longstreth, had now been very successfully filled for several years by Phebe W. Foulke, who resigned the position at the close of the past year, and her place was filled at the reopening in the Fall of 1877 by the appointment of Caroline S. Wood. The elective system, which had been applied more or less from the beginning to the college classes, especially in the Junior and Senior years, was not applied to any considerable extent in the Preparatory School, as will be obvious from the following note which appeared in the catalogue issued at this time : " The only elective studies in the Preparatory School are as follows : Natural History (Lectures), elective in all the classes ; Latin and French, elective in Class C. " 14 It was also stated that Latin might be substituted for English Grammar at the request of parents or guardians. At a meeting of the Managers the present year a communication was received from the Alumni requesting their attention to the representation of the Alumni in the Board of Manage- ment. The Managers expressed their satisfaction at this evidence of interest in the College on the part of the Alumni, but the way did not open to grant their request at this time. It may now be stated that since that time, as the College has grown older (having now entered upon its 2 8lh year), the Alumni have been very satisfactorily represented, not only on the Board of Management, but also in the Faculty, to the great advantage of the College, as none could better understand its needs than those who have received their education here. It was mentioned by the Managers in their report for this year as a very promising indication of the progress of the College that the entire Junior Cla-s of last year, who were pursuing a regular course, had now returned to graduate. This has gradually become the regular practice since that time. At the close of this the most successful year of the College thus far, the Managers used the following language in their annual report to the stock- holders ; language which cannot be too deeply impressed upon the minds of all friends of the College : " It has ever been the hope of the Managers that Swarthmore may more and more inculcate and exemplify those principles and that simplicity to which Friends bear testimony. Great sacrifices have been made to found and establish this institution of learning. It has been from the first a labor of love and devotion. The effort was in harmony with — it was the out- growth of — principles which it is the mission of our Religious Society to cherish and promulgate; namely, the devotion of our means not to display, 15 but to real good, and the exercise of a judicious care that we may provide liberally for all those things which contribute to the moral and intellectual advancement of coming generations. Although the outward and material establishment of Swarthmore is well-nigh finished, the great work under- taken by its far-sighted founders is scarcely begun, and unless it is to be dwarfed and hindered of its hoped-for perfection, others must continually take up and carry on the work in the same broad spirit of liberality in which it was conceived. A certain grade and class of schools are self-sustaining, but higher education has ever been and must continue to be the self sacri- ficing contribution of the present to the future.

Motto: — " Zrirov ev ra avuy Yell: — " Swartkmorc, Swarthinore, wa i, hoo, wah ! ' g7, ' g7, ' Pah ! ' Pah ! ' Rah ! Smlca-MtilM: ' 97 Class History. IN the first place, when we were called upon to write the history of the Class of ' 97, we were in great despair, for as we would have it, the history of a class is a record of their deeds; but surely to any unprejudiced mind it would appear that ' 97 had never done anything since they were in College, so they therefore could have no history other than a mere existence. But after much research we found an authority who was willing to say (perhaps he had such classes as ' 97 in mind when he made the definition) that history also included the chronicling of the events in which the thing described was concerned, and even of the things which affected it, in the performance of which the aforesaid thing described had not even taken a part. Now, ' 97, as it was impossible to write any history of your class from the first standpoint, it is likewise practically impossible to chronicle all the events in which we and the other classes took a part, and in which you should have taken a share, since they greatly concerned you ; so we will mention only a few of the most prominent. But, ' 97, we will give you credit for once in a while awakening from your lethargy, and making a few feeble attempts at being and doing some- thing : also, we will credit you with the fact that these weak attempts were miserable failures. For instance, in your Freshman year you and every one said you were going to win the Oratorical Contest— how could you help with that magnifi- cent exemplar of Demosthenes and his compatriots on your team; but Demosthenes got " a bee in his bonnet " %nd fanned the air, and ' 96 won the contest. Then, too, you met with a similar defeat from us in your Sophomore year, although you were determined to win. But we were new to the College then, and you did not know us ; if you had, you would most surely never have entered the contest. For afterward, when you did learn to know us— that is, after we had defeated you in this and every other phase of 23 college life — you would rather remain passive or default than meet us in contests of any sort. You gave a reception to your allied Class in your Junior year. You ordered ices, frozen fruits, and creams, and we, with our allies, ate them ; and they were good, too. That was one place you displayed good taste ; but you didn ' t taste it, we admit it. Your Senior year has been one full of honor. We have heard it rumored that the most of the Freshmen approached your members and congratulated you upon being fellow-Freshmen. Of course that wasn ' t true, but we are sorry that it happened. This was probably due to the fact that you have not yet gotten your caps and gowns. Your much-boasted-of hockey team was again the champions of all except our team and our allies. It must have been gratifying to be able to beat ' 99. Your Shakespeare evening was a howling success; in fact, it was the general opinion that the scenes could not have been acted better by any one — except a fourth-rate professional actor. But, really, we think that the fame of such an illustrious class as yours must have long ago been heralded throughout the world. And it is in the hope that we may further impress your greatness upon the cold world that 1(1 . we are blowing this little additional blast to your ri ' J honor on Fame ' s trumpet — our Halcyon. 24 Personalia of Class of ' 97.

EEK and lowly ' 99 ' s, allow me to take you by the hand and present you to a waiting, anxious world. Long have they clamored to hear from you. Your fame began when your low, sweet voice first faintly resounded through our classic halls. The echo of your class meetings was as sweet music to hungry souls. Our little world hoped much from you, and was pleased at that little incident in your early career which indicated, at least, a growth in your vocal powers. What would you do with athletics? That would determine your standing as a class in Swarthmore College. Your extensive preparations, for the spring sports excited much curiosity and wonderment as to results. Of course, we walked away with a great majority of the points. We were sorry for you. Our confidence in your ability was but little shaken, though you were forced to acknowledge your inability to cope with the stronger, more systematically developed physical powers of ' 98. Saddened, yet sweetened by defeat, you took up the broken threads of life. Time is a great healer. Fall found you in better trim and determined to throw off the robes of defeat and take an honored place among your fellow classes. But with an unpardonable lack of discretion, you thought it safe to begin on a younger class, one whose strength might be less fully developed. You sent ' 00 a challenge for a game of foot-ball on Whittier Field. Your old admirers, ' 97 ' s, still centred their hopes on you andi swelled the throng that watched that intensely interesting game. You took the field with all the vigor and bloom born of conscious strength, You; left it, alas, with humiliation and despair. Longing for a show of valor, you welcomed ' go ' s triumphal bonfire as a fit opportunity. Rallying your 36 weakened powers you made a brilliant dash, one last, futile effort. A few brief seconds and the conflict was over. Pitying Night kindly lent a pro- tecting veil to the few ' 99 ' s who saved their life by flight. You had made a last grand charge and it had failed. Gradually you slipped back into your accustomed lowly place, though you have never rallied from your defeat. We are afraid you are discouraged, and would remind you that the world still thinks kindly of you, and await your further activities with eager expectancy. Do not be daunted by trifles. Lift up your heads ! Look the world boldly in the face and try again. 37 Sophomore Class. Arts. John P. Broomell, AT, Baltimore, Md. Anna B. Eisenhower, Norristown, Pa. Edith Flitcraft, Woodstown, N.

Motto : — " TV- Z Desperanduvi " Yell : — " igoo ! Sis ! Boom ! AJi ! Swart iinore ! Sivarthinore ! Pah! Pah! Rah! " 40 IQOO Class History. H! " Listen, my children, and you shall hear " — a story. A story of the little girls and boys who entered Swarthmore three years ago. We knew no one, but it was not long before every o?ie knew us. At first, of course, " they harbored angels un- awares, " but the Sophomore-Freshmen contest opened their eyes, and — well, we won ' t talk any longer about what we did, but try to tell you how to " go, and do likewise. " In the first place, " Naughty Naughts, " you itjtist not show off your ignorance (we suppose you have it, all Fresh- men do, even we did), you must be more blase, don ' t inti- mate that you enjoyed . e reception, assume a languid air and say you lived through it; don ' t act as though you were having a good time in social hour, look bored and smile (involuntarily) when the bell rings. Perhaps (excuse us for the suggestion) it would be better to limit your class meetings to one a day ; we fear people are beginning to laugh at them. And don ' t let these meetings excite you too much, it would be a pity if universal nervous prostration should be the result. Then, too, in the meet- ings we would not do so much wire-pulling if we were you. You don ' t know how, you see, and when you get all tangled up the effect is rather ludicrous. As to your honesty, we like it immensely, but you had better not ask the professors any more " whether they mind your using ponies, " it is not the custom here, that is all. And just one hint more — you may feel de trop, but when you say so, remember the (p) is silent. 41 But, " taking a broad outlook, " " Naughty Naughts, " we are sincerely pleased with you. Good in scholarship, athletics, and social life, you are a class with whom we can feel perfectly congenial, of whom we may well be proud. Best of all, you have a large supply of that commodity which certain people we might mention seem to be totally without ; that is spirit, class spirit, college spirit. May they and all good spirits ever attend you i 42 Freshmen. Arts. Lucy Bancroft, IT B (f , Wilmington, Del. Anna Gillingham, Topeka, Kan. Edmund A. Harvey, . Brandywine Summit, Pa.

The Swarthmore Oratorical Association is organized as a branch of the State Oratorical Association, and is composed of the members of the three college literary societies, namely, the Somerville, Eunomian, and Delphic. The college contests are held under its auspices, and with the " John Wanamaker Prize " as a stimulus, the Association gives promise of doing excellent work in determining who is the fittest person to represent the col- lege in the Inter-Collegiate contest. Since its organization Swarthmore has won first place. OFFICERS. President — FRANK G. Blair, ' 97. Vice-Preside?it— ' R.wj Y. G. Bennett, ' 97. Secretary and Treasurer — Sarah Bancroft, ' 97.

HIS Association is intended primarily for students, instructors, and other members of our College community interested in the Society of Friends; but a considerable number of the neighbors are members and actually identified with its work. The objects of the organization are two-fold : first, the study of the history, literature, and principles of the Society; and second, the con- sideration and discussion of the vital questions of the present day from the standpoint of a Friend. 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, Prof. Ferris W. Price.

HE Scientific Association, which proved such a great success last year, has been continued this season with even greater success. The Scientific Society was organized in March, 1895, and later received the name of The Joseph Leidy Scientific Society, of Swarthmore College. Its object is to keep abreast with the discoveries in the scientific world. There are five sciences included in the work of the Association — Astronomy, Biology, Physiography, Chemistry, and Physics. The programs of the meetings consist of a report from the instructor in each of the above departments concerning the recent discoveries in the respective sciences. Papers are then read by different members on topics of scientific interest, followed by an open discussion from the Society. The interesting character of these programs is shown by the full attendance at the meetings, both from the College and borough. The executive committee consists of a committee of three from each department, one instructor and two students. The residents of the borough of Swarthmore are eligible to member- ship as well as the students and officers of the College. The meetings are held on the first Fifth-day evening of each month throughout the College year in Science Hall. 73 OFFICERS. Presidents : ist Term. Clarence B. Hoadley, ' 97 ; Frank G.

HIS organization has been formed for the purpose of studying the language and literature of Holland, and more especially of tracing the resemblances between that language and those of England and Germany. Not only is Holland so closely connected with the early history of our own American forefathers, but its language is so nearly allied to our own, and its literature so rich in some forms of prose and poetry, that the formation of such a society was deemed to be desirable, and its practical utility has already proved itself consider- able. The Club meets semi-weekly, and is composed of the following members : Dr. William Hyde Applkton, Prof. George A. Hoadlky, Prof. Marie A. Kemp Hoadley, Dr. William I. Hull, Mrs. Arthur Beardsley, Prof. Henry V. Gummere. 76 Swarthmore College Camera Club. The third annual Lantern Slide Exhibition will be held in College Hall, March 19th, 1897. OFFICERS.

I E was a Freshman, " Jones " was. The college had seen him for three hours when he made the acquaintance of the Sopho- more " Smith, " at whose suggestion he got on the elevator to pull up his trunk, for had not " Smith " promised to help him from the fourth floor, and would he not get a ride thereby ? But " Jones " was green, and when he got midway between two floors a sudden rain de- scended and drenched him— and " Smith " played the part of " Jupiter Pluvius. " It was the first night " Jones " had been away from home and at college, and he had been invited out to a spread in a Sophomore ' s room— " Smith ' s " room. " Jones " was homesick, but he went, and " Smith " saw to it that they showed him a real good time, " Smith " did. They made him get up on a table and give a speech, and tell them why he came to Swarthmore, and " Jones " enjoyed it, too— but he was awfully homesick. Now, " ' Jones " was not as green as he looked, for he had heard how the Sophs came along and dragged poor Freshmen out of bed the first night they were at college. Presto! " Jones " was not to be caught napping ; before he went to sleep that night he had all the movable furniture in the room and two trunks against the door— and the Sophomores got in over the transom. It was peculiar how all the classmen in college who were agents for anything made friends with " Jones. " " Jones " promised them all to purchase from them foot-ball clothes, draughting instruments, etc., and " Jones " really intended to keep his promise, but he went into the city the next day and got what he wanted one-third cheaper than they had off ' ered them to him, and now the agents say " Jones " lacks " the true college spirit. " 105 At the Junior=Freshman Reception. Of the parlors gay they had made the round, And seen the committee, too. They ' d talked of the weather and English exams., And wondered what next they should do. The Freshman looked up at the Junior tall, A soft silence reigned supreme. •To rescue the converse, she made an attempt To describe an oil painting she ' d seen. ' Oh ! don ' t you simply adore Ydin Task? " She asked. " His marines are divine ! He puts so much feeling in all that he does ! And his sunsets are perfectly fine ! And where can you find more poetry, pray, Than in the gold sunset ' s bright dress? " The Halcyon Editor ' s murmured reply — " In the waste- paper basket, I guess ! " What Do We Usually Eat? Oh, tell me why, on Managers ' day — In an old Quaker college, staid and gray. Where everything new is judged indiscreet- They give us civilized things to eat? io6 R m M w wi 3E ariiw Sketches. A CLEAR, CALM, MOONLIGHT NIGHT. T is a clear, calm, moonlight night. Thro ' the half-open win- dows on the warm spring air floats the perfume of the magnolia- trees. The college sleeps. But wake and listen ! For in the distance, nearer, yet nearer, comes the sound of music — music that comes from clear throats and happy hearts, from Swarthmore ' s loyal sons. The singers stand half in the shadow of the great trees and half in the silvery moonlight, and under the quietly twinkling stars they raise their voices, filling the summer air with melody. The last " Good-night, good- night, " fades away, leaving only the moonlight and stars and pleasant memories in the heart. SHE WAS A YOUNG GIRL. She was a young girl, as dainty as a piece of Dresden china, with a bright, happy face and a wistful look in her clear brown eyes that made her face not only pretty, but very interesting. It was at an evening reception. The crowded rooms, the soft swish of silks, the merry voices, the scent of many flowers, the soft sound of mandolins stealing out from behind the bank of palms made a seat where one could quietly enjoy it all, a thing greatly to be desired. And so this beautiful Bess was quite content to sit in such a place, while her partner went to get her an ice. And she listened to the bits of conversation that floated to her ear. " Yes, Jack ' s engaged. I thought he and Bess were pretty good friends. A little rough on her, I guess. " And the one who overheard was crushed, and sat, half unknowing, till her escort came back with a cheery, ' ' Such a time as I had to get this ! Was I so very long? " And then she smiled and answered brightly, for there was dauntless courage in this dainty slip of a girl, and no one guessed her sorrow or that, after that night, there was " only a life made unhappy, only a broken heart. " 107 VESPER BELLS. There are few things more soothing and charming than the music of church bells ringing out in the glad sunshine or in the calm twilight of departing day. The sweetness of their tones seems to harmonize with their mission. And many are the scenes and memories long forgotten that are then brought to mind. A story, only dimly remembered, that the musical intonations of a chime of bells brought to my memory is this : " There was a town in Italy whose bells had become famous all over Europe for their surpassing solemnity and sweetness. They were the work of a young Italian, who simply existed through the day, waiting for them to play at evening. " There was a devastating war, and the bells, on account of the purity of their tones, were carried away, no one knew whither. After it was over the poor fellow tried to work again, but he longed with an unspeakable longing to hear his bells again, till he became ill and could stand it no longer. " So he left his home, determining to find and hear his beloved bells again. For years he went from town to town, from land to land, till even his sanguine hopes began to falter, and he realized that he must soon relin- quish the search and die. Finally, one evening he lay half insensible in a boat that was slowly floating down the Rhine, but still he was absorbing with intense interest the beauty of the sun that was setting so gloriously over the vine-crowned hills of Germany. While he lay motionless the vesper bell of a distant village began to ring, and as the chimes stole faintly over the river on the evening breeze, he roused from his lethargy. The deep, solemn, sweet music of his own bells was not to be mistaken. He had found them at last. He leaned from the boat with his ear close to the calm surface of the river and listened, with his soul in his eyes. The bells rung out their hymn and ceased, and he still lay motionless. His companion speaking to him received no answer. The spirit had followed the last sound of the beloved bells till it heard the vesper chimes echoed in Heaven. " To8 Crum Creek Waters. Have you seen the Crum Creek waters In the gladsomeness of Spring, When the eddies laugh and frolic In their aimless wanderings ? When the green buds mirrored in them Wide their feathery pinions fling, And the birds sing madrigals For the miracles of Spring. Have you seen the Crum Creek waters In the glories of the Fall, When the lazy waters linger At the dying Summer ' s call? When the mellow, yellow sunlight Tarries in the maples tall, And the golden leaves float seaward, The last sacrifice of Fall. 109 Our College Life. We look back with pleasure on our little childish fancies and delights, our boyhood ' s idols and ideals, now that we have come to this distinct feature of our life, the transition from boyhood into young manhood. As such, indeed, would we like to regard our college life, a transition stage, spent in the forming and strengthening of our minds and characters, a period of life passed in " a little world of its own, " a world which is continually rubbing up against and touching the larger one outside. We are all of us more or less happy in this chapter of our life-story ; we take a selfish interest in ourselves and our pleasures, we look into the future, with its toil and tribulation, but as a natural sequence of this, and we are satisfied and not afraid. In the Library. It is drawing near the gloaming, And the shadows softly fall. With a touch of benediction, On the walls of Swarthmore Hall. And the shadows soonest deepen In the room where poets sleep, Where the prophets of past ages Their eternal silence keep. And the spirits of the poets Hallow all the silent place, There one banishes all sorrow, There one knows nor time nor space. And if you perchance are weary, Think the joy not worth the pain, You will find there consolation Where the kings of ages reign. For the message of the poets Thrills your being through and through. Though they speak not Yet their presence fashions all the world anew ' Tis the memory of his teaching Whom the pines of Concord mourn Speak divinely ! Live divinely ! Be the god that thou wast born ! ' Tis the memory of that message Sent us in that wondrous story, How man came from Home, the God-Head, " Trailing clouds of Glory. " And the heart depths still re-echo, Strengthening the mind again, ' In thy soul is all that will be All that is and what has been. " Oh, ye spirits of the poets, Bide in Swarthmore evermore. Give her all the calm sereneness That dwelt there in days of yore. Two Letters in the Same Mail. Received at her home just before college opened in the fall. My Dear Miss F : — Knowing how many engagements you always have I have ventured to write to you now to ask if you will go with me to hear Sothern the first Saturday after our return to college ? I hope very much to have a favorable reply from you, and am antici- pating seeing you soon. Monday, Most sincerely yours, Jim H. R. II. ' • ' It is also expected that permission to visit the city shall not include the privilege of attending the theatre with young men of the col- lege . " 112 To ' 96. O Class o ' ninety-sax, How gaes the warld wi ' you ? We ken it canna blaw sae cald Ye winna meet it true. Aft hae we missed the days Whin we bided liere the gither, Whin like the leal friends we were, We aided ane anither. Gane are those days But they hae mak ' t us bauld To fecht the fae wi ' all our might As ye i ' days o ' auld. The Stairs Were Full. The stairs were full of shouting girls Mad rushing toward the dining-room, Arranging pins and straggling curls Within the hall ' s protecting gloom. Ple-a-s-e wait a minute, I ' m but half-dressed The minutes passed one, two, three, four; And then with pity unexpressed St. Peter closed the door. One Sunday. r was Christmas time. The vast dim church was silent. Hardly it seemed like a church, but more like a forest of dreamland, for each pillar and post was wrapped in spruce and in holly, myriads of arches there were with the green cross rising above them, while the fragrant boughs of the pine spake to all who beheld them of the infinite peace and contentment that reigns in the woods that they come from. The bright morning sunbeams struck the memorial windows, then 114 thinking- of what they touched they felt ashamed of their boldness, and softly their gold and crimson radiance fell on the bowed heads below them. ' ■ Hark ! The Herald Angels sing, " Is it a voice that is singing, or is it a dream of the sunshine ? " Glory to the new-born King; " They are children ' s voices, they are coming nearer and nearer. " Christ by highest heaven adored, Christ the everlasting Lord. " The great door beside the chancel swings open and the boy singers enter. Their white robes gleam in the dim church. Slowly, with upturned faces and shining eyes, they come singing : " Hail the Sun of Righteousness ! " And now they climb the steps to the altar. " Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace ! " Every childish face is turned toward the great window where the faint light shines around the victorious Christ, the organ sends forth its grand exultant tones. Suddenly, as they sing, a splendid gleam of sunlight falls upon the window. It changes to cloth of gold the grave garments that are clinging to the ascending Saviour, it touches tenderly the shining hair, it illumines that awful glorious face and then falls in transcendent glory upon the rapt faces of the singers. Fuller and more victorious become the strains of the organ, higher and sweeter rise the childish voices : " Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing : Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King ! " As with one voice the sea of worshipers echo the joyous cry : " Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King ! Messiah is King ! " It is Christmas time. The little gray-stone meeting-house is silent. The students sit erect on the hard wooden benches. The Faculty sit on ' the " Facing Seats, " the last row leaning against the plain white wall. There is not a sound anywhere. Some adventurous sunbeams steal in through the ii6 high aid- fashioned windows, and trace in gold upon the wall all sorts of mystic promises which each one takes unto himself, finding in his own heart the key to solve them. It is a silence not of waiting, but of being; not of longing, but of fulfillment, a memory of the repose that rests upon the face of Aphrodite, a foreshadowing of the eternal silence, the Nirvana of the Faithful. Suddenly a melodious burst of song breaks the spell, and a robin is seen swinging merrily upon the maple bough just without the open window. A brave robin to sing at Christmas tide ! The heart that beats ' neath its blood-stained breast seems to o ' erflow with the joy and the glow of its being. Like the robin who sang though its breast was torn with the cruel thorns it had plucked from the crown of the Crucified One, so this robin sings, though the day is cold, its anthem of peace and good-will. Soon the listeners all join it to silently sing a gloria to their new-born King. After awhile the robin flies away to its nest, but the hearts of the listeners sing- on all day : " Glory to Him in the Highest Hail ! All Hail !

Dearer than the apple blossoms, In the early spring ; Dearer than the crocus buds, Days of sunshine bring; Dearer than old Whittier Field, Where the honor ' s won ; Dearer than the merry parlor, When our work is done ; Dearer than the memory Of ninety-sixes true, (And that is laden high with joy As pleasures we review) ; Dearer than the cherry tree When May ' s sweet snowflakes fall To deck it in a mass of bloom And fragrance for us all.

A boy mounted a black steed and rode rapidly for some distance. Suddenly the pony tripped upon a stone and broke its leg. The way was long and hard, and the boy was poorly prepared for such a journey. He had put too much dependence in his pony. The result was that he flunked in German. ii8 Farce.

Once upon a midnight dreary, as I labored, sad and weary, Over lessons, long and tiresome, in my study at Swarthmore, — As I pondered, almost sleeping, suddenly I heard a weeping, As of some one ' s awful moaning, groaning, just outside my door. " ' Tis but fancy, idle fancy, that I hear this at my door — Only this and nothing more. " Ah ! full well do I remember ( it was in a cold December), 1 was seeking from my Horace meanings that were hidden there ; But the way seemed long and dreary, and my mind was worn and weary. And my soul was greatly burdened with a load it scarce could bear — With the load of that poor mortal, moaning in the darkness there. " Who can be that mortal there? " Presently my soul grew stronger ; for this moaning I no longer Could endure, nor sit there reading while my mind was in suspense. So I crept out through the darkness, full of terror, ne ' ertheless. Just to find, when I had reached there, though the darkness was intense, " Tabby, " our beloved " Tabby, " singing on the college fence ! Only pussy on the fence. The Stars in the Sky. The stars in the sky were shining bright, The stars on the ice their equals quite ; For many a sight they ' d seen that night, And some things, perhaps, that were not right. Said the stars above, " What sights we see. " Said the stars below, " You can ' t touch me. For the sights are as funny as they are free. " And they cracked a smile at their icy glee.

I am youre respectfulle daughter, Prudence Pennyroyal. 123 My Dream. AN ALGEBRAIC NIGHTMARE. When soft the shades of evening Had wrapped my couch in peace, And the faithful hand of William Had caused the gas to cease, With dizzy head I sought my bed And murmured as I went : O hazy combinations, O crazy permutations, Ye are my soul ' s torment. " When on my downy pillow My aching brow was laid. And for my day ' s transgressions Due penitence I had made, With tears and sighs I closed my eyes To seek in dreamland gray. An ideal College Where there ' s no knowledge Of English algebra. 124 When lo ! on my slumbering vision, A complex form arose With fierce binomial eyeballs, With huge, quadratic nose, With radic expression and harmonic progression Approaches my cot as his goal ; When an infinite fear o ' an approaching zero Transfixes my integral soul ; For the X-ray light of his absurd % A . " Shewed " plain on his multiple trunk; When in frantic delirium, ' Neath Vandemond s theorem, He ' d written the fatal word flunk. I ' d never be a Swarthmore lad. If nothing better might be had ; For I ' m but a fair Co-ed, And couldn ' t, don ' t you see? 125 I he Latin Room. Oh, it ' s in the " Latin Room " That we never meet our doom, Where the grief-portending bells have little power. There we calmly hunt our verb, And think it is superb ; There we can go on co-eding by the hour. Oh, it ' s there we sit and work And our duties never shirk. With our dear old Horace handy some place near. Lest in the Dean should walk, And spoil our pleasant talk ; So that is why we carry books down here. Oh, it ' s way down there in " " That we never have to fly, When we hear that silent tread of world renown, But we stop at once our chatter. And get to deeper matter, With our dry old Latin books turned upside down. When the College has grown hoary With her weight of years and glory, And is known throughout the country For her science and her story. When the Freshmen ask in wonder Who the " Glee Book " did create. The very walls will answer, " ' Twas the class of ' 98. " 126 Scientific Tragedy. One Act. One Scene. Person. : Dr. Day, Refe -ee. Backrack, of Illinois, Instigator. Meyer, of Bermuda, Heavy-weight. Time, early morning. Place, Lecture-room. Dr. Day before his Fresh- man Class, broiv wreathed in clouds, foreboding a coming storm, announces i?i thundering (.?) tones : " Now, looky here, you Freshmen, My grade books o ' disappeared. And if it ' s not returned to-day What each of you will have to pay Is something to be feared. " Backrack, with a triumphant look on his face, leans forward and whispers into Meyer ' s ear : " Come, now, my old boy, Victor, Return the Doctor ' s book ; For if you ' re caught Your grade is nought — Just see the Doctor ' s look. " Then up rose noble Victor And turned the other way, His cheek was tinged with garnet And never was a hornet More eager for the fray. Bermuda ' s blood was running high. And evil looks lit Victor ' s eye. His cheek with anger glows ; He raises high his massive right, And brings it down with all his might, And lands on Backrack ' s nose. END OF FIRST SCENE. 127 Oh, Where? (To ' 97.) Oh, where is your old class banner? And wouldn ' t you like to get it? What made you get a new one With another just to fit it ? Oh, where is your hockey game? And wouldn ' t you like to win it? And don ' t you wish that the Ninety-eights Were always so grandly " in it " ? Oh, where is your oratorical prize ? And wouldn ' t you like to have won it? And don ' t you wish that Demosthenes In Ninety-eights wasn ' t incarnate? Oh, where is the whole class, anyway ? Too bad we cannot see it ; If you ' d only made up your mind to act, To be something and be it ! When apples grow on scrub- oak trees. And junket turns to Charlotte Russe, When waters warm in summer freeze, Then Ninety-nine won ' t be a goose. 128 A Junior Romance. ' Tis near the end of vacation ; By the sea I wander alone, Watching the sails in the distance And the waves with their white-crusted foam. I dream o ' er the novel I ' m reading Of the heroine ' s curls and her glance, So entrancing, bewitching, entangling, And wish could live a romance ! I think of the quiet vacation I ' ve spent ' neath the blue summer sky, And wish that before college opens — But here an umbrella I spy, A dainty, lace covered umbrella Alone on the sand by the sea, What visions of eyes and brown ringlets May there be waiting for me ! Of what can the darling be dreaming ! I wonder, and cautiously peep O ' er the rim at the soft, drooping lashes Of — somebody s baby asleep Full dreary was the alcove stair, No boy or sign of boy was there. With buckwheat cakes and syrup rare. She only said, " My life is dreary. He Cometh not, " she said. She said, " I ' m aweary, aweary, I would that I were dead !

She just knew she would not pass, no matter how well she did ; she really didn ' t know a thing about it, but that would not matter one iota; for had not Miss C — n — gh-m seen her doing this or that thing which was absolutely disgraceful ? Still, she would go to class and endure her fate as best she could. He was quite sure that he would flunk, he knew that Miss C had invented some problem especially for his benefit, and with that end in view ; still, if so and so got anything done, he would be sitting near him, and might also be inspired, and, beside, he had such and such formula down perfectly (on paper), and, altogether, he mi ' g i get through. So he and she both went to the examination, and many classmates beside, and lo ! there was a surprise in store for them. For, after they were all assembled in solemn conclave, in sweet, sono- rous tones did Prof. C n gh-m hold forth : " Well, now, if you are ready, we will proceed immediately with the 130 examination. I have decided to hold this examination by the honor sys- tem ; in this, as you doubtlessly well know, we leave it entirely to the honor of each individual whether he or she obtains help from any outside source. " N. B. — Those having ponies in their pockets or up their sleeves knew this did not apply to them. " I see that you appreciate my confidence imposed in you; and first of all, in order that you may not be crowded too much, I will ask that you sit at least three seats apart. " N. B. — Those believing in the co operative plans in exams begin to look worried. " Then, secondly, inasmuch as you will no longer be bothered by each other ' s presence, I would free you from all anxiety of this nature by request- ing that you place all your text and note-books out of your reach, that in the stress of examination you may not, absent-mindedly and unintentionally, open one of these, and be ever afterward haunted by the idea that you may possibly have cheated in an examination under the Honor System. " X. B. — The class realize what a narrow escape they have made from being conscience-stricken, and with sorrowful faces place their books out of their reach. " I knew that, had you only thought of it, you would have done this without my suggestion ; and now, lastly, inasmuch as we seem so congenial, and you may perhaps wish to ask some questions, Mr. G-m-r-e and I will not leave the room and desert you, but will walk around and see how much we can indirectly aid you by our presence, for you must know we delight in such a mathematical atmosphere as this. " N. B. — -The class spontaneously realize the beauties of the " Honor System, " and how fully they are indebted to their beloved professor for the faith displayed toward them. However, a general state of uneasiness prevails, and somehow, from the furtive glances cast on the note-books, etc., one would think that the class was worrying more over the " Honor System " than the examina- tion. And both he and she afterward remarked in conversation that they wished the " Honor System " was " in Guinea. " From Mother Goose. There was an old Senior climbed Algebra ' s hill, And if he ' s not passed, He ' s climbing it still. There was an old student, or so it is said, Who lived upon nothing but syrup and bread Syrup and bread were the whole of his diet, And now that old student ' s eternally quiet. As I went up College hill, College hill was snowy, There I met a pretty maid, Very fair and coy. " Pretty maid, pretty maid, May I with you climb? " " For co-education, this, Sir, Is not the proper time. " There was a boy went to class, Wisky, wasky, weedle ; And every word he ever spoke, Was fiddle, faddle, feedle. Examination chanced that way, Wisky, wasky, weedle ; Says he I think that I will flunk. Fiddle, faddle, feedle. 132 What We Have Done. HAT did we do in our Freshman year? Ask rather what we did not do. Of course we very soon won our reputation for energy and good scholarship, and then secured our world ' s opinion of us by winning the Sophomore - Freshmen Ora- torical contest. We proved to Swarthmore, too, that we had muscle as well as mind, in fact " We came, saw and conquered. " As Sophomore ' s laurels were showered upon us,, we won the Sophomore-Freshmen field contest that year, and distanced all the classes in the points we gained, and to remind us of the victory (when honors multiply one is apt to forget some of them), we have our Phcenix Cup. Champions in base-ball, too, we were, and the ' 97 ' s had to give up the G. W. Childs Cup to ' 98. Still another trophy — the C. S. Powell Cup — for we carried all before us in Lacrosse, you remember. And, excuse the diversion, but it was funny; you see we got hungiy one night, and as the ' 97 ' s were giving a reception, we just lifted their ice- cream out of the wagon and cahnly withdrew to enjoy it at our leisure, while the ' 97 ' s treated the ' 99 ' s to a feast of reason.

Another championship is ours, that of Hockey. And now as Juniors we are editing the Halcyon and a Glee Book, trying to pay back to our Alma Mater a little of the debt we owe her. We have adorned her walls with works of art, we have won honor for her, now we would fill her halls with music and have her walls re-echo songs which have been written out of love for the " Garnet.

" The college Commencement was over O ' er the crowded campus they walked, The fair co-ed. and the Senior, As about the future they talked. He plead for her hand then in marriage. But she looked away with a frown. And held her diploma the tighter In the folds of her long college gown. No, indeed ! " she replied, " for in future I shall my oivn lawyer be, And zzxi plead xx " ) ' own ' cases, ' I thank you. Marriage is an uncertainty. And should not be entered on lightly. " She paused — and he eagerly cried, I ' d be glad to anywhere enter With an angel like you for my guide ! " Her silvery laugh rang out gayly — " That ' s the point of the trouble, " she said. It is stated that fools often rush in Where angels, alas, fear to tread. " 135 The Four Years of College.
