Birdsall. ILLIAM W. BIRDSALL was born in 1854, near Richmond, Indiana, and spent his boyhood days on a typical western farm. He was educated, principally, in the public schools of the neighboring- city, completing his studies at Earlham College, where he was graduated in 1873, the youngest man in his class. After a year or two in business, he taught Mathematics and Physics, for five years in the Richmond High School. His first experience in conducting a school indepen- dently was during three years spent as Principal of the Boys ' High School, in Wilmington, Delaware. A remnant of old-time discipline seems to have been in evidence during his prede- cessor ' s reign here. President Birdsall was visited by the father of one of his boys soon after his installation as the new Principal, and was appealed to by, " Indade, Misther Birdsall, you ' ll niver govern Danny unless you whip him ! " President Birdsall resigned this position in order to accept that of Professor of Mathematics in Friends ' Cen- tral School, of Philadelphia. After very successful work in this department he was made Principal of the Boys ' Department in the same institution, and filled this position until 1898, when he was offered, and accepted, the Presidency of Swarthmore College. Whiie in Philadelphia, President Birdsall became exceedingly interested in educational work among Friends. He was influential in the organization of the General Conferences of Friends, one of which was held in Swarth- more in 1896, and which have proved so successful. He figured prominently in these as presiding officer of the Educational Conferences. The First-day School, at Fifteenth and Race Streets, owes much to him for its growth and influence. The Young Friends ' Associations, which are now organized in every Yearly Meeting, have also partly owed their existence to his energetic, unfailing aid and practical advice. President Birdsall has brought with him to Swarthmore a keen, active brain, a quick wit, and ready sense of humor, a strong personal magnetism, and above all an earnest, practical interest for the best welfare of the College. %03AJ J 898-99. 1898.

" ii Swarthmore College ITS ORIGIN AND SOME NOTES UPON ITS EARLY HISTORY. By Edward H. Magill, LL. D. CHAPTER VI. Destruction and Reconstruction ofjthe College. " HE previous chapter closed with an account of the work and condition of the College in its twelfth gj year (1880-81 ). during which the elimination of the Preparatory School began bythe omission of " J-.v Tl _ ' the lowest class. Notwithstanding this omission, the number of students continued the same as the previous year (266), being the largest number thus far reached in the history of the Col- lege. During the summer which followed the Commencement of ' 81. an unusual amount of re- pairs and slight improvements was accomplished, including a general painting of the College anew, within and without. The subject of the need of a new Science Building continued to be actively considered, and early in the vacation Professor Beardslev, of the Engineering Department, visited Samuel YVillets. in Xew York, and presented the great need of the College in this respect, receiving from him the promise to give S10.000 toward the building proposed. The Professor felt that $35,000 would be needed to carry out the plans which he proposed, and next visited Joseph Wharton, who offered to give what Samuel Wil- lets would, but no more. Later the plans were so modified as to bring the price down to $25,000, when Joseph Wharton agreed to give the same as Samuel Willets, — S10.000 for the building, and add the $5,000 necessary for its equipment. It was therefore under very encouraging auspices that the students were assembled at the usual 12 time, early in the Ninth month. Soon after the re-opening, on Seventh-day, the 24th, a committee of the Man- agers met at the College to locate and lay out the new Science building. The ground was chosen west of the main building, between the College and the President ' s house, the east wall of the new building to be only about twenty-five feet from the west wall of the College. Some one objected to this locality as being too near the Col- lege in case of fire, as both buildings would be liable to be destroyed in case of the destruction of either. A highly esteemed Manager, of excellent judgment and large business experience, remarked that he would not be afraid to assume the personal responsibility of the loss of the College by fire. The location w-as accordingly approved, and the stakes were set. The next afternoon (First-day) the President noticed, especially, the beautiful landscape in front, and the newly-painted College, so well equipped within and without for its work, as he rode out on horse- back to visit his good friend, and the good friend of the College, Isaac H. Clothier, of the Board of Managers, who then resided at Sharon Hill, but four miles away. Their conversation is well remembered, after the lapse of more than seventeen years, and they both felt that the prospects of the College were never so bright as on that beautiful autumn day. At or near 1 1 p. m. the President passed the front door of the College on his return, and found there our most faithful watchman, William Mullen, who, as often before, accompanied the President to his stable, and at once returned to the College. A few minutes later a loud explosion was heard, and looking from his chamber window the President saw a long column of fire shooting out of the west side of the dome. His first thought was, it is above the level of the great tank, and we have no appliances for forcing water above that level. Of course it was soon found that the College was doomed, for although the wings were separated from the main building by fire-proof connections, the separating walls did not rise sufficiently high to prevent the fire from spreading, and the roof being of combustible material it w-as not long before it was in flames throughout the entire extent. The students were aroused with difficulty at that dead hour of the night, but they were all rescued without a single accident. The young men soon, of themselves, formed a line, passing down the larger or southwest stairway, and up the smaller in the northwest, thus saving most of their effects, and some of the College furniture, including all the mattresses of the west end, which they threw out the windows, and which fur- nished fairly comfortable lodging on the front lawn later in the night, after the excitement and highest glare of the fire had somewhat subsided. The young women fared worse, and their trunks and clothing were very gen- erally destroyed. There being six stairways from the top to the bottom of the College, escape was not difficult, although at that time there were no outside fire escapes. Fire companies from Philadelphia were sent for promptly by telegraph, but when they arrived, about 4 A. m., the building was a mass of smouldering ruins. Friends ' His- ' 3 torical Library, in the west alcove room, second floor, and a Professor ' s room above it, were saved by the fire- proof ceilings. In the Historical Library the heat was so great that a bust of Lucretia Mott was calcined, one of Elias Hicks much defaced, and a picture of Elias Hicks and one of George Fox were entirely destroyed. Except these two rooms in the west alcove, the main building and wings were totally destroyed. As in the haste and con- fusion of the night we stumbled over the stakes for the Science building, at the west end of the College, we con- cluded that the new site for that building would be no longer urged ; and it was not, but it was placed later where it now stands, at a safe distance from other buildings, between the main building and the Meeting House. As the Laundry was saved by the fire-proof shed which united it with the main building, the College bell was struck for breakfast at the usual hour next morning, for by the kind thoughtfulness of Col. Theodore Hyatt and his son, of Chester Military Academy, who were promptly on hand, the bakeries of Chester and their own sup- plies were liberally drawn upon during the night, and an ample breakfast was set out on rude, improvised tables of boards and barrels, on the front lawn, at the usual hour of 7.30. When on assembling for breakfast, the roll was called, it was a great relief to find that every student responded except a few sent away on necessary errands. Notice was at once given that the College would re-open in two weeks within some reasonable distance from its present location. The Managers were summoned by telegraph, and in a few hours a meeting was held in the Meeting House ; and as they assembled all were impressed by the contrast of the purpose of the meeting and one which was to have been held in that place on that day, as others throughout the country, during the funeral exercises of our martyred President Garfield. A committee was appointed to proceed at once to Media and se- cure temporary quarters for the College, and before night the Grove House had been secured for the home, the general College exercises, and the rooms for the young women ; and the Gayley House, a few squares distant, for the rooms of the young men. These quarters were found sufficient, though quite restricted, for all were dis- posed to make the best of everything in view of our great disaster. When the fire occurred two hundred and nineteen students had arrived at the College, and two hundred and sixteen of these returned to our new quar- ters, in Media, on the re-opening. Six more were received in a few days, and then all other applicants were de- clined for want of room. The two weeks were very fully occupied in securing the necessary furniture, apparatus, and books. A number of publishers and authors contributed liberally toward our new supply of books, both for the classes and for the library which had been totally destroyed. The Alumni, too, quickly came to the rescue, and started a subscription, headed by the late J. Reese Lewis, of the Class of ' 74, for the sum of $1,000. Officers of the First National Bank of Media, who were present at the fire, at once offered the College, without interest, a loan of all the money needed in the emergency. Among others who came to our rescue in this time of need our friend Henry Bentley should he mentioned, who connected with telephones (then much less used than now) the President ' s house with the Grove House, in Media, the students ' boarding place, and where the classes of the Col- lege were held. The Meeting House was used as a Library, and the new books were then arranged upon the seats, and a messenger went daily to and from Swarthmore and Media, to carry and return the library books de- sired by the students. In four days after the fire the Managers issued a circular calling for needed aid in the re- construction of the College. The first cost of the building lost was about $225,000. But this was exclusive of the valuable Museum of Natural History, collected by the faithful and persevering labor of Dr. Joseph Leidy dur- ing the previous ten years, in which he was liberally supported by the contribution of Joseph Jeanes ; the entire Li- brary, the furniture, and necessary apparatus of the Laboratory and class-rooms ; so that it is safe to say that the building destroyed, with all of its contents, had cost nearly a half a million of dollars, of which only $100,000 was secured by insurance. As the exterior walls were mostly saved, the reconstruction would have cost less than the original building, but the various improvements and additions to make it better adapted to its purpose, and truly fire-proof, made a much larger expenditure necessary. But the friends of the College responded nobly and promptly to the appeal of the Managers, and the reconstruction was commenced as soon as the walls were cooled and the insurance adjusted, the subscription papers in the meantime being industriously circulated. At length the funds were largely subscribed, but $65,000 were yet necessary. An earnest appeal brought $15,000 of this sum, when Samuel Willets. who had already subscribed liberally, agreed to pay one-half of the remaining $50,000 on condition that the other half should be promptly paid. This rapidly produced the desired result, and one of the very last acts of the useful and noble life of Samuel Willets was the signing of the check for this $25,000. It should be mentioned here that in arranging for the amount necessary for reconstruction the Man- agers most wisely added in the amount of a considerable mortgage which the College had carried from the be- ginning. Thus, when all was completed and paid for, the mortgage was extinguished, and the College out of debt. Thus one of the objects which may be said to have been destroyed by the fire was the mortgage, which, unlike the building, has never been renewed. The Commencement of ' 82 was held .in the- unfinished College building, the students covering the lath of the unplastered Assembly room with a tasteful arrangement of evergreens collected from the College grounds. In just one year from the destruction of the College its re-building was sufficiently completed for the students to assemble, two weeks later than usual, on the anniversary of the fire, September 25th, to begin the work of a new J 5 College year. The number of students for this new year was 274. fifty more than were accommodated in the re- stricted quarters in Media, and eight more than the number of any previous year. This paper has reached the limit of space allotted, and I will close it by a list of a voluntary committee of Al- umni, who called a meeting three days after the fire " to consider what action can be taken by the Alumni in con- nection with the sad calamity that has befallen the College : " John B.

We won ' t count up. Often enough, at any rate, to make us realize that ninety- nine will soon be reckoned with Swarthmore ' s past, and shortly make her debut on life ' s stage. And we inquire, with what suc- cess ? But we don ' t have to stretch our imaginations far to make a fair estimate of her future, since witnessing the last Shakespeare evening. It is true the footlight triumphs have vanished, the flowers are withered, and the excitement is over ; all these have gone, but not an impression made on the audience. A clear vision of ninety-nine ' s future, and comparatively brilliant it appears, too. not at all a reflection of her past, strange as it may seem. ' We see. in the motley procession floating before our eyes, numerous, charming Rosalinds, sweet Celias, shy Jessicas, and daring Juliets, going forth to break hearts and lose their own, to say nothing of the brave Orlandos. Romeos, and Bassanios. Following close upon this array of the sublime come the ridiculous Touchstones, making clowns of themselves for society in general, and hand in hand behind them the foolish Williams and Audreys. Poor things ! they haven ' t sense enough to know how silly they really are, or rather, poor ninety-nine, for having to harbor such weak minds. It is onlv justice, how- ever, to say they have few grasping Shylocks or scheming Lady Macbeths. They still have some things to be congratulated upon. While lamenting the loss of an Antony to move the world to tears by his powerful oratory, his place is ade- quately filled by stern Petrucios. who will move their Katharines to swear that mustard without beef is delicious. Let us hope, for the sake of peace, the Katharines will all prove as gentle and submissive as their model. Titania is still queen of a host of fairies, who gracefully wave their magic wands, but instead of falling in love with a hideous Bottom she leads them into gloomy college settlement quarters, where they will teach the little ebony colored waifs to personate Queen Katharine and Shylock in imitation of their classmates, and help them grow to be famous men and women. Thus, in their parts, they all remain, though some have a different offer. Thev all will sins: the old refrain: " Dear Swarthmore, how we love her! ' ' 22 Class of ' 99, OFFICERS.

I would set before you the wondrous deeds of the illustrious Class of 1901 ! We set foot within these College halls on the twenty-second of September, 1897, a large class, an enormous class, a huge class of fifty-nine members. And did we lose as individuals what we gained in numbers ? Nay, our heads are the largest in College ! But, oh, our greatest virtue, our originality ! Have ye heard how the nineteen hundreds got Class hats, and how we followed their example? Have ye seen these glorious productions of an artistic brain? Have ye ad- mired their beauty? How they sit upon one ' s head like a postage stamp upon a letter! But patience, gentle reader, while I force back my tears ! Those hats departed, taken by the wicked, wicked Sophs. Taken from our gaze to be hidden in some damp, dark cellar, midst spiders and mice and rats. Tear-stained were the cheeks 39 of all my classmates, and our hearts were sad as sad could be. In our grief and rage we hazed a nineteen hun- dred, but with silence and great care lest we should rouse his friends. Then we tore their beds apart, and when it did no good we nearly died of grief. But the Dean (oh, may her name live long!), to save us from so sad a death, begged back our hats. And still we hold within our hearts awe for those " naughty-naughts " who braved our wrath and conquered. But let us leave this sad subject ; let us forget the Class elections we must needs take over because we forgot our constitution ; let us forget the spring sports and basket-ball games lost or tied, and think of the noble spirit we have ever displayed. Do you say it has been of no avail ? Nay, intrinsic worth is what we love. The power to work and strive against all odds ! To keep one ' s confidence after many defeats ; to bear in silence the scorn of all ; to generously give up our own pleasure in victory to see those younger than ourselves made happy ! This is true righteousness ; this is the force which slowly but surely will move the world, as our Class has moved the College! And when you would have an inspiring them ' e turn to the annals of the Class of 1901, read of their patience and long suffering, and such eloquence will flow from your lips that the trees and stones will be en- chanted as with the music of Orpheus !

C L ZftO . 3n i(-tte-hnutf There is a Class in our College, And they are wondrous wise. For they chose a year to come here When thev ' d have us for allies. Then as the winter months came on They hastened in alarm To get some pretty bonnets To keep their young heads warm. They took us for their model As every Class should do, And when they heard that we were naughty Whv, thev were naughty too. And, strange to say, they put them on And wore them right away. The Class before them didn ' t — So the College records say. We ' d heard they were the biggest The College could recall ; But when we went to look at them They weren ' t big at all. 46 At their first Class meeting the Sophomores Gave them cause for some complaint, But Prof. Hoadley heard the racket — He is now their patron saint. They acted very properly And did as they were bid, And rather than sign when they were late Why, back upstairs they slid. And once they had a party At the President ' s pretty home, And when they saw their rooms again — Well — thev wished they hadn ' t come. When ninety-nine and na ughty-one A little gathering had, These wicked little Freshmen Were really very bad. The} ' had comb-concerts on the stairs And made quite much ado ; The Executive had to meet next night- And it was Sundav too. But tales of Freshman-life, 1 fear. Will fill us with frivolity. So we ' ll pause right here with a hearty cheer For the quantity and the quality ! ! 47 Freshman Class ARTS. Elizabeth A. Ashburner Media, Pa. Ethel Beardsley, Swarthmore, Pa. Edith H. Cooley.

Its object is to keep abreast with the discoveries in the scientific world. There are five sciences included in the work of the Association — Astron- omy, Biology and Physiography, Chemistry, Engineering, 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 the 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 membership as well as the students and officers of the College. The meetings are held in Science Hall on the first Fifth-day evening of each month during the College year. Officers. First Semester. President, Calvin F. Crowell, ' 99. Vice-President, Benjamin A.

' O O nly the amateur ' s carefully written lines, ut of the naughty-naught ' s deep knowledge-mines nward we send them, and hope for success; bserve now, and judge them with true kindliness. 107 The Old Cherry Tree. The cherry tree is standing on the campus ' sloping brow And the robins chatter gayly on its blossom-drifted bough, ' Mid the pearly petals swaying in a snowy mass of bloom. Half-delirious with the fragrance of its newly-won perfume. Hark, their clear notes ' thrilling music throbbing through the limpid air Speaks a heart released from sorrow, and a soul released from care; And we echo back the chorus as it floats along the lea, For we, too, have known and loved it. that time-hallowed cherry tree. How often do we haunt it on each mellow afternoon, And linger ' neath its freshness in the drowsy airs of June; We know each carved initial on its bench and rugged coat. And mayhap have known the writer and have loved the hand that wrote. Dear records of the passing stream of hearts that onward flow. But leave us still a parting sign to cheer us as they go; Landmarks on memory ' s pictured chart that ever green shall be. Till we cast off Life ' s last cables and beat out to open sea, — We bring to you a tribute from the storehouse of our love, Fresh as the turf about your foot, pure as the skies above; Long may your sweet buds bursting forth, their starred pavilion raise, As long your graven bark recall the friends of other days; And ethereal music mingling with the murmur of the bees Voice the thoughts that halt and stumble intertwined in lines like these, For we, too, shall know and love it. that time-hallowed cherry tree, Till we cast off Life ' s last cables and beat out to open sea. 108 Sketch She had turned her back to the charms and de- lightful possibilities of the well-cushioned divan, upon which lay the latest story, and she was kneeling by the window of that cosy south room on the East Wing, with her chin propped in both hands, a suggestion of weariness in her pose. It was all so tiresome and humdrum, this continual routine of work. Why couldn ' t something happen once in a while? And there was that pert little Freshman walking down the asphaltum with her friend from the city, smiling radiantly on every one else, while she, a Junior — well, she had friends in the city, too, only they — they seemed to have other things to do. She was wasting time, and she knew it, and her Essay for Pol. Econ. was due on Monday and she hadn ' t half finished it, but her Prof. Hoadley (after Class flunks in Physics). — " Election clay comes the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, doesn ' t it? " Class. — " Yes. " Prof. H. — " Well, this Class may have a clay off for experimental work the first Monday after they know their lesson on a Thursday. " Prof. Hayes. A. Wallen.— — " Are you prepared to-day ? v ' Yes, ma ' am. " thoughts wouldn ' t come somehow, they seemed to be somewhere else, in the city, perhaps. Why did every- thing look so gray and dreary to her this afternoon? A train came whirling near — a train from the city, and drew up at the little brown station. A wave of interest passed over the drooping figure. It became curiously animated for one so indifferent to all around the College. Surely some one was getting off. Two ladies, a small boy, and then — yes, a tall, manly figure, which started up trie asphaltum as though training for the spring sports. And the stately Junior maiden found her interest suddenly transferred from the city to Swarthmore, the campus looked bright and prom- ising, the window and couch were both deserted for the rest of the afternoon. Dr. Day. — " Farquhar, what do we get from this experiment? What did you have left? " Farquhar (slowly). — " We have the — the appara- tus left. " Lengthy. — " Hub was the Napoleon of Swarth- more, but I ' m the Bonaparte. " First Girl. — " Mae, is thy sister a good writer? " Mae. — -Yes, indeed, and she can also make her mark. A Grades Conclusions. Well, Jack, old fellow, what ' s the news? By Jove, I ' m glad you ' re here! You know, the fact that I ' m a grad. Makes me feel mighty queer. You say old Swarthmore ' s not the same? Of course it couldn ' t be Since our old class has left its halls — That fact I could foresee. The next thing on the boards will be An enormous gray stone wall Extending down the asphaltum. And there ' ll be no fun at all. Well, give me back ye olden times, When Faculties were the style. And executives didn ' t face you At every half a mile. Oh, yes! I ' ve heard of that new freak Among the girls of late. That mean old Student Government plan. The East Wing says it ' s " great. " When Prex. and all his satellites Lived happy, peaceful lives. A ' Vhere ignorance is bliss, " they say, ' Tis folly to be wise. " But I agree with you, my boy, That ' s all a merry bluff — They can ' t make us West Wingers think Thev like that sort of stuff. But why this hurry? Must you go: ( )h, catch the five-nineteen ! A date for social hour? Oh, yes! To miss it would be mean. Why, when the Faculty ruled the roost A fellow saw some fun. We made our dates, and kept them, too, And never had to run. I ' d ask you to stay to dinner. But I wouldn ' t have you lose That peaceful half an hour When the Exec, has no excuse How aggravating it must be To mount the alcove stair, To have a harmless little chat, And find a hindrance there.

Four figures distinctly outlined on the fourth-floor ledge, East Wing, evidently enjoying the magnificent scenery, aided by the moon. Suddenly sounds of tramping feet on the asphaltum, then full chorus of male voices. " Forty-nine blue bottles hanging on the wall, Forty-nine blue bottles hanging on the wall. Take one bottle away from the wall, And there ' re forty-eight blue bottles hanging on the wall. " [Subdued giggle from the ledge.] First Voice. There they are. Now keep cool and remember the Maine. Second Voice. I know I ' ll laugh so, I won ' t be able to scream at the proper time. Third Voice. Honestly, Meg looks so real, I ' m scared to death for fear she ' ll talk. Chorus [belozv]. Forty-seven blue bottles hang- ing on the wall, etc. First Voice. Now, remember, just as soon as they reach the second tree the deed must be done. Third Voice. Suppose they don ' t look up, and they ' ve got to know we ' re here. Second Voice. I ' ll settle that. [Whistles.] ife := [Full chorus of same in anszver.] Second Voice. There, I knew that would work. It ' s a wonder, though, that they ' d stop that charming melody to answer me. 112 Chorus, Forty-five blue bottles hanging on the wall, ete. First Voice [yazvning]. Just let me know when they approach that second tree. I ' m going to take a nap. Second Voice. Goodness! how can you take a nap in all this excitement? Third Voice. I should think you ' d know her well enough by this time to know she could sleep if the Spaniards were bombarding the college. Second Voice. How many bottles are hanging on the wall now? Chorus. Forty-one blue bottles hanging on the wall, etc. First Voice. Gracious! Who ' s coming? Do you suppose the Executive Committee heard that whistle? Third Voice. Don ' t you believe it. The Execu- tive Committee are the people that seek their couches early. I guess it ' s Fraulein walking in her sleep. Poor, dear old Meggie, how I hate to see her go. But she wouldn ' t be good for anything anyway, all doubled up in that sitting posture. The Executive Committee needn ' t fuss. They ' re getting rid of a nuisance. Second Voice. If those boys don ' t stop that bot- tle affair I ' ll have the nightmare, and think the bottles are tumbling down on me. Chorus. Thirty-eight blue bottles hanging on the wall, etc, [Subdual ivhistle from asphaltum. Answer from ledge] First Voice. They ' re at the steps now. Third Voice. Look, they ' re in the light now. Are you sure it isn ' t any of the Faculty? Second Voice. Yes; it would be likely that the Faculty would be singing about the blue bottles this time of night. First Voice. Anyway, you can ' t mistake that bass voice you hear every now and then. Third Voice. Those rare bass voices are only produced in Lancaster County. Second Voice. I ' m mighty glad they ' re rare. Chorus. Thirty-six blue bottles, etc. Third Voice. Whistle again. I ' m afraid they ' ve forgotten we ' re here. [Second Voice whistles. Answer from asphaltum.] First Voice. The fatal moment is approaching. My heart is going like a trip-hammer. Second Voice. For heaven ' s sake, don ' t go over along with Meg, and don ' t forget to disappear as soon as we scream. Say, have you got that piercing effect all right? You had better practice in your mind. Third Voice. Oh, I can scream all right. Girls, don ' t she look like somebody we know. Won ' t that one arm wave tragically on the downward swoop? Second Voice. Glory! They ' re almost there! " 3 Suppose they shouldn ' t come over after her. We couldn ' t go down and get her, and it would be wildly exciting if she should be lying down there in the morn- ing. Third Voice. The only thing I am worried about is that Salvation Army bonnet I borrowed. Do you suppose I ' ll ever get it back? First Voice. Now, ready! They ' re almost there. Chorus. Thirty-one blue bottles hanging on the wall. Thirty-one blue bottles hanging on the wall, Take one blue bottle away ! ! ! [A loud scream, a fleeting vision in white rapidly descending from the ledge, landing with a thump.] First Male Voice. Great Csesar, fellows! You don ' t suppose Second Male Voice. Yes, it is! Run fellows! Heavens! I knew that would happen some day. Third Voice. She must be killed. First Voice [approaching the body]. Yes, she ' s perfectly still. Wasn ' t that an awful scream she gave! Second Voice. I sort o ' hate to touch her. She isn ' t breathing, is she? [All this time subdued laughter from above.] Male Voices. Well, for heaven ' s sake! Did you say easy? Bless those women! The next time it will be the real article, and she ' ll die before run to her rescue. Well, let ' s see what she ' s made of. [They drag her across the grass to the light. All the while convulsions of laughter on the fourth.] First Female Voice. Speaking of successes! Weren ' t they scared to death? It ' s worth all the sleep I ' ve lost. Second Voice. I haven ' t laughed so much since the D. D. D. performance. Those bottles came down from the wall all at once, didn ' t they? Third Voice. But, that bonnet! If they ' ll only save it. Second Voice. Listen! They ' re reading the in- scriptions. First Male Voice [reading]. " Rubber! " " E. Z. " What ' s this? " Miss Meggie Phone, East Wing. Gone but not forgotten. " Second Voice. Well, I never was so scared. It was the biggest shock I ever had. Third Voice. Those girls think they were smart. I ' ll never attempt heroic rescue again. I don ' t believe in it, anyway. Come on, fellows, let ' s take her up arid hang her on my wall. Prof. H [suddenly appearing]. Young men. what is that you have there? First Voice. We found it on the campus, and we brought it in because it had some valuable bed- clothing wrapped around her — I mean it, 114 Prof. H . Don ' t bring it in here. Leave it exactly where you found it. This is a nice time of night for all this racket. [Meg is dragged back on the Campus, to the con- sternation of the watchers on the fourth.] First Female Voice. One of you will have to get up early and go down and get her. I saw a young girl sleeping. A presence seemed to hover over her, and it whispered, " Thy choice, Love or Power. " The young girl stirred restlessly in her sleep, and a deep sigh, full of sacrifice, escaped her, but she whis- pered, " Love. " The presence vanished. Humanity is then full of nobility and sacrifice. For life is a trust and Love is the giving of one ' s life to others — the forgetting of self. She cast one longing glance at Power. She was human, and she had ambition. The young girl wakened and put aside dreams and desires. She lived for others; she lived truly. Third Voice. All right ; I ' ll go to save the bonnet. Second Voice. I knew those chumps would leave her there. Come on, let ' s go to sleep. [The perpetrators seek slumber, interrupted now and then by subdued giggling. Muffled Voice. Say, how many bottles were hanging on the wall? [Curtain.] Proffisms. Pres. B— rds— ll: " Books closed, please! " Dr. H-ll: " I have not yet made up my minds. " Prof. Pr— c— : " Are you listening to me or some other nonsense? ' ' MissT-t-s: " This is the most intelligent-looking class that ever appears before me. " Prof. H— y— s: " Snowy masses of soft ethereal mist. " Dr. Tr— tt— r: " Remember the main (Maine) facts. " Prof. H— dl— y: " That takes place all the while. " " I wouldn ' t want to publish that description in a text-book. " Miss N— w— ll: " My lateness is pretenarious. " Dr. Tr— tt— r: " That reminds me of a story. " US They were not to blame Because they came In a sorry plight To dinner that night. The night was dark To have a lark, But two by two, Which is always too few, Out they went On business bent. The fate was sad Of each innocent lad, And in chief the twain Who struggled in vain, When that mighty rope Gave them limited scope. From the tree to hie And their co-mates spy. But when put in bed And their foes all fled They again arise, And in different guise Their way they take. Though with fear they quake, Where Media ' s streets The wanderer greets. But the way was hard For Gilyk and his parcl. And the bandage thick Was displeasing to Mick. It may have been sport, But the menu was short. And the struggle was long To the much-abused throng. But we all profit some By these trials when they come. So, dear readers, believe, As you well may conceive, That not two by two, Which, alas! is too few, Did they go the next year, But without thought of fear, In a concourse quite vast, And each fellow held fast 116 A large wooden stick, Very long, very thick, Which guarded them well, Love, Williams, and Bell, And the rest of the throng Who journeyed along, With the moral.

Ring out, wild bells, the students ' dread, Through class rooms drear, through alcoves bare, The night has vanished in thin air; Ring out and summon us from bed. Ring up the tired, ring down the slow ; Ring, unkind bells, across the snow. Dear sleep is going, let him go, Ring us to breakfast, whether or no. Ring out the grief that saps the mind When summoned to that class-room door, Where C. Smith happily reigns no more, Ring in redress to all mankind. Ring out, ye bell so loud and blithe, Which sends Miss Lukens up the hall, With welcome summons in her call ; Ring in a breath of outside life. Ring off, ye bell with lack of sense, To ring so soon reception nights And spoil all tete-a-tete delights, Ring off and send thy clapper hence. Four Epitaphs.

The President ' s first call for troops in the spring of ' 98 sent a responsive thrill through the patriotic souls within our College. A huge silk flag was raised on the dome, purchased by means of noble self-sacri- fice on the part of the Faculty and Managers. Long before, Lieut. Hiram Campbell, of the Tenth Ohio, had resigned his commission to become Captain of Swarth- more ' s company, and was faithfully drilling his willing troops in preparation for their departure. And every night the spacious gymnasium resounded with the tramping of feet to the strains of martial music. Then one day a gloom settled down over the East Wing — the brave boys were going to the front, headed by me, and I swelled with pride as I saw around me my noble band. I must hasten over this sad departure — the waving of small white handkerchiefs, the tear- stained faces, as we waved a sad farewell to our friends of the East. Down the road we marched, followed by a furniture wagon bearing those things of which we would feel the need during the campaign. Sergeant Price had some twenty volumes of standard Latin prose, with which he would " pass the time away " be- tween battles. Captain Hayman took a copy of " Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs, " which we would sing while the band didn ' t play. Private Hoadley, besides the immortal Ganot ' s Physics, carried a well-bound copy of Smith ' s Higher Algebra, which he had prom- ised faithfully to read to convalescing soldiers. He also had a carpet-bag filled with cross-section paper, on which to make proper records of temperature, rain- fall, and death-rate. Thus we proceeded to the station, and here, as all along the route, we received an ovation from crowds of admirers. Modesty compels me to make brief mention of our victorious career — how we swept all before us; how with one look at our brave men the Spaniards fled; to say nothing of the individual bravery of Cap- tain Hi, with his staunch companions, Darby and Napoleon, the latter putting his namesake to shame. All went well until Sergeant Price had the ends of his mustache singed by a passing bullet. The injury necessitated his leaving for home, and his loss was greatly felt. Several smaller accidents marred the en- joyment of the trip. Private Hayes, while composing a sonnet to a Cuban beauty, did not observe that water was filling his tent, and narrowly escaped drowning. Surgeon Day, while distributing tracts on Asphalt and Gilsenite among the sick and wounded, was mobbed and only escaped through the quick brainwork of As- sistant Surgeon Guyer and the ready Spanish of En- gineer Bayley. Soon through the untiring efforts of our old friend and former President, peace was de- clared, and light-hearted and joyous we started out on our triumphant voyage home. A transport was se- cured for our exclusive use, and our battery soon reached its native heath, without losing a brass button or a Red Cross badge. The fame of Swarthmore and Battery Z will be perpetuated by the " Unabridged History of the World, " now in press, written by Dr. William I. Hull. A Senior Blow-out. I lay half asleep and half dreaming, On the couch among pillows galore, Still holding Tom ' s crumpled long letter, Over which I had cried my eves sore. Now, don ' t you dare tell if I tell you, Though I did it, I surely confess, Nor was it because of Tom ' s letter That I got in this horrible mess. He said — but, indeed, I can ' t tell you, For Tom ' s meaning you won ' t understand, And then, my dear, you don ' t know him As I do, his best friend in the land. Well, ere I was bold to make answer To the girl whom I heard in the hall, I went with all haste to the gas-jet Hoping darkness might cover it all. Well, anyhow, I had been thinking, Was still thinking, perhaps you will say, When all of a sudden, I started At a call T heard down the hallway. My mind, I suppose, was a chasm, I forgot it was gas burning bright. So I blew once, twice, and a third time, Till T ' most blew myself out of sight. Then all of a sudden I started, Could a Senior ' s head be so thick. Or was it because of Tom ' s letter That I did such a real Freshman trick? 124 A 1900 ' s Dream. 1 dreamed a dream one awful night, It was no joke I vow, It put me into such a fright, I tremble even now. And ever as 1 dreamed this dream My consternation grew, Without those threadbare jokes of ours What would our Halcyon do? For in my dream I truly thought The oaks had grown up tall, And not a student opened mail While in Collection Hall. We dare not publish new ones — No classes ever did — In fact. I was quite sure ' twould be By the Faculty forbid. And every First-day morning fair Each maiden said a text, All to improve the youthful mind, Not one to just please " Prex. " I tore my hair, 1 do declare, I fear I even wept, But then, oh joy! I dreamed a thing That made me know I slept. For I dreamed that in the French Class Nobody spoke a word; Of course, I could not sleep through that, I rose and cried, " Absurd! " I2 5 These are the boys Who, in a trice.

Ode to Johnny. Johnny Hayman, many winters Thou hast trod these college halls. Brought the mail up the asphaltum. Loved by all within these walls. Thou art getting old and feeble. Shambling is thy gait once strong. Thou art ever humming, mumbling. Soft and low. a sad, sad song. This year is the last, they tell us. Thou shalt haunt old Swarthmore clear; Now some gentle friends will claim thee. Claim thee kindly, never fear. We would tell thee, ere thou goest, How we love and honor thee, How we ' ll miss thee when thou leavest With thy loner worked-for degree. i 7 Progress of the French-American Correspondence.

My Dear Dorothy: I have received you letter there are three days and I have been very glad when I have it opened, there to find one of your photographys. You are indeed very pleasant with your little hat so sedate. You can be still tired this time to not receive mine but my brother being ill we wait, that he goes well for go to do us photograph. Do not believe that I do not will you it send, on the contrary, I will than you have it alreadv, and I shall do every my possible for to send you it too soon. I thank you still a time to have me yours send. But I am amiable very with my eyes so big and my hair so gold and my nature is pretty, very also. I am five feet two inches small — petite — we say, and of fun I am very glad. But speak us now to your college. You say me that you are pupil of second year. I see that you are boarder, and that you would prefer better with your parents. I speak much and perhaps, do you not understand that I say you. In waiting, receive, dear friend, much of kisses of your french friend, who you much loves. Bertiie Dur AL. " What do I want? " the Freshman said; " My mamma, clear, to see, My Pa, and Sue, and Baby Ned, My little room and downy bed — A horrid place this seems to me. " " Gee whiz! " a Sophomore gay exclaimed; " You Freshmen act like mules. Give me excitement; I ' ll be blamed If one of us would be ashamed To pony, smoke, and break such rules. " The " stately Junior " then replied, In accents deep and clear, " Give me to ope the portals wide Of learning ' s hall; let me abide With sacred muse and sage austere. " Then from the Senior, thin and worn, Came words of deep despair: " Use well your time, pray, do not scorn This precept, lest, as we, you mourn A wasted course, of honors bare.

Their hopes diminished and despair it grew, Listen to their tale of woe, When Meers with the ball for a touch-down flew, ' Twas ten times worse than the grip (kerchew!). Too true! Too true!

A Vision She had been out all day, and now that evening was falling she turned toward her apartments. The crowds oLpeople pleased her. She liked to feel her- self surrounded by much life. It was this warmth of feeling, this kinship with men which had helped to make her books famous and her friends so reverence her. Entering the richly-fitted room she threw aside her furs and sank into a large chair before the grate. How well her maid knew her tastes. The fire was blazing brightly, just as she loved it best. As she sat there the wavering glow lingered upon the silver threads in her glorious hair, the strong, ambitious face relaxed, and the brown eyes grew more and more sad. more and more dreamy. Reaching out her hand she gathered the pile of letters from off her desk and began to open them one by one. Some were notes of con- gratulation upon the success of her last book, some were invitations, and one was a letter from an old friend. As she finished she leaned back in her chair, her foot resting on the tiger-skin rug. her eves upon the fire. The sound of passing sleigh-bells brought back a winding creek, a high perched inn and a quarry far below, while the musical roll of skates rang as an echo to the dying bells. Then the still meeting-house in its setting on the hill. The silence and the eager listening for one voice from all the rest when each in turn a text had given. The peace and the rest of it all came back with the fire-light glow. Came, too. the whispered " to keep my hearth-fire burning, sweet. " and then the quick " It must not be — my mission, woman ' s higher education. " The gray head bent low, the strong face quivered and clasping then the letter, just as the last glow died from the fire and darkness touched her. she mur- mured, " And is this woman ' s higher education? " Little Miss Birch Sat on a perch. Her thoughts were far away. Walter espied her. Sat down beside her — She went to the Nursery next dav. Dear Editor: Flag; yes, it was the last of Swarthmore ' s dear treasures which I saw waving as the train pulled out of the station. Very cordially yours, H. V. Gl ' MMF.RE. A College Incident We will give you a narration Of a very strained relation Twixt a youth of education And a Prof, of meditation. Now this youth of reputation, Seeking for some recreation, Sought a maid of fascination To engage in conversation. And the maid, with palpitation, Wholly lost in admiration, Did not answer with negation, So they sought for a location Where the Phoenix propagation Meets the staff ' s consideration. Thev engage in conversation On the new co-education, Or discuss with animation His intended avocation. For this happy situation Comes a little molestation, For a Prof, in cogitation — Latin Prof, in perturbation — Hopes to make a separation By a timely visitation. Back and forth from his " plantation " To the Phoenix doorway station. Hastes the Prof, in trepidation. As he seeks feigned application Of some law of education ' Neath increased illumination, In new book at each cessation, Of his short perambulation. Said the youth with petulation, " This outlandish fascination Keeping Prof, in this location. Merits only condemnation. ' ' Then the maid with salutation Soothes the youth ' s deep agitation, " Senior Engineer, thy station And my former reputation Call for instant termination Of our present bored relation, " And she flees in trepidation, End of all his recreation. Then ensues a brief sensation. For the youth vows molestation. And with feigned humiliation Seeks the Prof, of reputation ; Hears the Prof. ' s wild protestation. Spoken with great agitation. Then he speaks his indignation In some words, whose application Quite exceeds imagination. Then again the Prof, of station Quite upholds his reputation By renewed procrastination. For he wrought a separation. Warum ? Es giebt eine schone Schule Mit Studenten fromm nnd froli, Die studieren viel im Winter Und in Friihling thun niclit so.

YARNALL, Secretary. President and General Manager. A Modern Knight. Swarthmore Millennium. The wise knight of history, science, and lore, Of all the old classics by which we set store, Grew wearied of nothing but class-room humdrum, And decided to take a short journey from home. When during his travels he chanced to discover A princess so charming he couldn ' t help love her, This knight of rare valor made bold to devise The wooing and winning his coveted prize. His suit was successful, and late in December Occurred that event which we ' ll all long remember, When he made his Bachelor ' s Degree void and null. And she " ' raced the name — Mrs. William I. Hull. Letter Received from William John Hall. Dear Editor: I have already experienced much annoyance from having my name in print in the College publica- tions. I wish to state that I positively forbid you to use the na me William John Hall in any connection. Sincerely yours, William John Hall. When Miss Cunningham finds " gumption " in her awful stupid class. And Dr. Day has lost his nasal twang. When every one in drawing curves can Hoadley ' s skill surpass, And Price ' s puns have points on which to hang. When tears of joy will cease to flow at Appsy ' s w ml ■ if praise, Or Dr. Hull no longer rubs his post. When students hear with happy hearts the hackneyed hits of Hayes, You may expect to see your father ' s ghost. Seven Wonders of Swarthmore. Choral Class. The Museum. Conversational French up to Date.

Who are the ones who frown on fun, But like it well as any one. To the alcoves go when we are dune? Why, the proctors! Who is it that loves the ocean shore, The raging storm, the waves ' wild roar, And each view makes him love it more? Why, William! Who is our artist of wondrous fame, Who agrees in her height and length of name. In rain or shine is ever the same? Why, Ann ! Who is it that never on Sunday noon, Deigns to visit the dining-room. Who to joy and bliss will be the doom? Why, the waiters! " Who is it that from the West did hie. Who Geometry does so rapidly — why He even can make Miss Cunningham sigh: Why, Mark! Who is it that in the reading room makes a stir, When the people are least expecting her. And whose absence I ' m sure some much prefer. Why, Miss Nowell! Who is it in whom high aims we see. Who says she satisfied will be. When in writing and spelling she holds a degree: Why, Sue! Who is it that bravely trains the boys. Who loves dumb-bells and other toys. And wands with seeming grace may poise? Whv, Mr. Houghton! Proctors, proctors, scourge of all our bliss, You are the maids we always wish to miss. But you we ' re doomed to see, where ' er we chance to be. You ' re all alike in this, you bother me. 136 Verlenden. — Every player has his day. Temple. — Experience is the best of all teachers.

I did not notice who the gi al posts were to-day. The " Varsity " and the " scrub " were returning from the field. It was raining, and the men were heavily plastered with Delaware County mud. ( )ne man especially, one with black whiskers hanging low over his chest, showed the results of stiff practice, in fact, his uniform was so discolored as to make the original constituents entirely indistinguishable. " Who is he? " inquired a visitor. " He coaches the scrub, " answered a Freshman. " Then somebody had better scrub the coach. " " My Dear Fellow: . . . " Come to think about it. I haven ' t thought much about it — ; ' . ?., Swarthmore — since leaving. That was too small a place for me — not enough money in it. This world advances bright people, and so by leaving I went up a peg. I am rather surprised to hear that Board of Managers did not drop the En- gineering Course. Yes, I am. " Yes, I am making money: can do this easily. Finished a bridge yesterday. Am busy now on a new gas engine, works as if human.
