IXTEENTH YEAR, 1884-85.-011 the loth of Fourth month of this year the College lost, by death, the valuable services of the Superintendent. Thomas S. Foulkes. He had served the College with untiring energy and imremitting care for a period of thirteen years. His interest in its success was unsurpassed, and he never spared himself when his duties seemed to call for his services. His kindly and genial disposition warmed toward him the hearts of all by whom he was surrounded. His ever ready jests and good stories made his office a centre of attraction. Students of that time will recall with pleasure the cordial reception which ever awaited them there. He had a story ever ready and ap- propriate to illustrate the passing occurrences of the day, and in this respect he was not unlike our martyr President Lincoln. Plis unselfish devotion to his work may be illustrated by a circumstance not generally known. Forest fires were not uncommon in those earlier days of the College, when " huts " and " caves " of " Preps " were not infrequent on the wooded hillside along the Crum. The origin of these mysterious fires mav be readily conjectured. To extinguish these was frequently no inconsiderable task. It was at one of these fires, where, with others, he spent a good part of the night in surrounding and arresting the flames, that he was so exhausted when he retired toward morning that fears were entertained for the result 14 of that night ' s overwork. This was in very early spring, and he was never really well afterward, and be- fore the middle of the Fourth month that earnest, active life went out, and he passed on to the Life beyond. His memory will ever be most kindl} ' cherished by all Swarthmoreans of that early day. His place was filled by the appointment of William J. Hall, a graduate of the College of the Class of 1878. Other changes in the heads of departments were made this year as follows : Susan W. Gillam took charge of the Department of Elocution, in place of Joseph W. Teets, resigned; Gerrit E. H. Weaver, A. B.. of the Class of ' 82, took charge of the Department of History and Political Economy, in place of Ellen E. Osgood, resigned ; and Beatrice Magill, a graduate of the School of Design in Philadelphia, took charge of the Department of Art, in place of Ellen N. Griscom, resigned. The President of the College again resumed charge of the Department of Latin, in place of Professor Eugene Paulin, who, in addition to his other College duties, had been appointed Superintendent of Instruction and Discipline of the Pre- paratory School. The whole number of students this year was 275, about three-fifths of whom were children of members of the Religious Society of Friends, this proportion being larger than in any previous years. The propor- tion of College students continued to advance, and this year there were 112 in the College classes, and an increasing tendency to pursue one of the regular courses of study provided. To the eight schools from which students were admitted without examination, on certificates from their Principals, the Friends ' School, of Locust Valley, L. L, was added the present year. The Library, which was wholly destroyed by the fire three years before, had now reached 6,247 volumes, being an increase of 547 volumes in the past year. Some suggestions were made this year of providing a new Library building, that the growth of the Library might be facilitated, but I may say, at the time of this writing, about sixteen years later, that no such provision has yet been made. But we have gradually divided our Library, as it has continued to grow, and established Department Libraries in diiTerent rooms, and in this way the pressing need for a separate Library building has been, for a time, obviated. But the proper care of the books will eventually require a separate building, and toward sup- plying this need the attention of Friends must be turned at no distant day. In the report upon the financial condition of the College the present year, the Board of Managers dwelt upon the necessity of looking forward to -ard the endowment of some of the Professorships. LTpon this important subject they used this language: " While it will be seen that the institution continues to be, IS as in the past, self-supporting, so far as the regular current expenses are concerned, it must be seen that we cannot make the various improvements needed, and depend for this work upon the current receipts. And in an especial manner is it true that, as our requirements are advanced, and the number in our Col- lege classes constantly increased, we shall be under the necessity of incurring greater expense for instruc- tion than in the past. To meet these added expenses it is exceedingly desirable that Friends who have the means should extend aid by the endowment of the Professorships. Friends should understand that, without such aid, no institution for higher education can or should ever expect to be self-supporting. It is therefore earnestly hoped that the friends of the College will look toward the endowment of the prin- cipal Professorships in the College at an early day. " Se ' enteentii Year, 1885-86. — The number of College students continuing steadily to increase with the more advanced condition of our Preparatory School, the number in the College classes reached 123 for the present year, and at this time Class C, the lowest in the Preparatory School, was dropped, and the for- ward movement toward the elimination of that school, and having Swarthmore take her place as a college proper, among the colleges of our State and country, was thus fairly begun. An earnest appeal was made to Friends to so arrange the courses of study in their preparatory schools as to fit students to enter our Freshman class, and remain four years and complete the course, instead of entering too early, improperly prepared, and, becoming discouraged, leaving to enter upon business before the College course was com- pleted. To increase an interest in this subject the President began, during this vear, visiting various places in this and adjoining States, and speaking, to Friends and others, of tlie value and importance of a Modern College Course of Study for all, and especially for all intending to teach, in whatever grade: and one of the results of this outside labor was the organization of the " College Association of Pennsylvania, " which has now increased, and become the " Association of Colleges and Preparatory Schools of the Middle States and Maryland. " The Managers, who have been, from the first, so deeply impressed by the import- ance of their work for the present and future generations ' , say at this time: " In this work we bespeak for him the cooperation and sympathy of friends of the College generally. We believe that it may be made one among the various means by which additional interest in a higher education may be aroused among Friends throughout the country: and that thus, in a few years, instead of one college among us, not quite half filled with college students, and eking out its numbers by a large preparatory school, the demand for places for Friends ' children, properly prepared at home, ma)- be so great that the College 16 classes alone will fill Swarthmore to its utmost capacity, and soon require additional buildings for their accommodation. " The only change in the head of a department th e present year was the appointment of Henry W. Rolfe, A. M., a graduate of Amherst College, previously an Instructor in Cornell University, to take charge of the Department of Latin. The President, who had assumed this charge the previous year, now in- structed only the Senior Class, requiring this relief that he might give more attention to outside lectures, and the general duties of the College. As an Assistant in Latin, Ferris W. Price, A. B., a graduate of Swarthmore in the Class of 1874. and for some years a successful Instructor in Friends ' Central School, in Philadelphia, was appointed in place of Mary L. Austin, who resigned at this time after fifteen years of most satisfactory and faithful service in the College. The Department of Chemistry was much strength- ened at this time by the appointment of Albert G. Palmer, Ph. D., of Johns Hopkins University, as As- sistant Professor of Chemistr} ' , and considerable new apparatus was added to this Department. A change, which was practically, though not nominally, a change of the head of a Department, was made this year: Dr. Joseph Leidy, who was appointed Professor of Natural Llistory in 1870, and served the College so well in that capacity for fifteen years, was now made Emeritus Professor of Natural History and Curator of the Museum ; and Dr. Charles DoUey was appointed Assistant Professor of Natural History and Lecturer on Physiology and Hygiene. Dr. Dolley had recently returned from abroad, where he had been pursuing his studies in Zorn ' s Biological Laboratory, in Naples. He entered most zealously upon his new duties, and the work of this Department was greatly extended. Dr. Dolley giving us three entire days each week, whereas Dr. Leidy had given us but a few hours weekly of his valuable time. Under Dr. Dolley the Col- lege opened a Biological Laboratory for practical work, and made Biology an elective study for all who desired and were prepared to enter upon it. Among the minor changes made by Dr. Dolley is one which the young women of the College have since especially enjoyed, the establishment of the flower-garden on the border of the drive, at the east end of the College. We felt that the changes and additions in the corps of Instructors this year were eminently satisfactory, and that the teaching force had never hitherto been so strong and efficient as at that time. The Instruction Committee appointed, this year, a part of their number as a Visiting Committee, who visited and reported upon the classes everv month, and the President made to this Committee monthly reports of his visits to the Classes, and their condition, both in the College and Preparatory School. 17 Another important change was made at this time : Class C, which had been used as a Model School in the Teachers ' Department, being now dropped, it was decided to abandon this school of practice, and to open a course in the Science of Teaching, for those intending to become teachers, and the Professor to be appointed was to use the class itself as the practice or model class, thus obviating the necessit) ' of a school of small children for this purpose. Thus, the College proper was, little by little, being evolved from the large mixed College and Preparatory School. About 1,200 volumes were added to the Library this year, for more than half of which we were in- debted to gifts of our friends, Stephen DarHngton, W. J. Youmans, Joseph M. Truman, Jr., Dilhvyn Par- rish, and Joseph C. Turnpenny ; and Friends " Historical Library was considerably increased by gifts from Howard M. Jenkins, Charles Thompson, Dillwyn Parrish, Eli M. Lamb, Lydia H. Hall, and Lydia Jackson. Increased attention was given this year to the Department of Physical Culture, and Walter W. Ford, A ' l. D., was appointed to train the students in accordance with the carefully graded system of Dr. Sargent, of Harvard College ; and Susan P. Stackhouse, M. D., was appointed Lecturer on Physiology and Hygiene to the young women, and Dr. Dolley gave a similar course to the young men. At this time the report of the students ' standing in scholarship in exact figures, indicating the per- centages, was abandoned, and the present system of first, second, third, and fourth grades was established. A full report of this prolific year would lead me quite beyond the limits prescribed by the Halcyon, and I must close with this remark, again repeated by the Managers at this time. They say : " Let us again remind you that th€ one great need of the College, to place it beyond all question upon a safe and secure foundation, is the endowment of Professors " chairs, in all of t he leading and essential departments. ' " The next chapter will show that this reiterated counsel did not go very long unheeded. 18 Faculty and Instructors, WILLIAM WILFRED BIRDSALL, President and Professor of Pedagogy. B.

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 and Physiograph}-, Chemistry, Engineering, and Physics. The programs of the meetings consist of a report from the instructors in each of the above departments concerning the recent discoveries in the respective sciences. Papers are then read bv different members on topics of scientific interest, followed by an open discussion bv the Society. The interesting character of these programs is shown by the full attendance at the meet- ings, from both the College and the 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 Collesre. The meetings are held in Science Hall, on the first Third-dav evening of each month during the College year. 64 REZORGANIZEID AS THE JOSEPH LEIDY SCIENTIFIC SOCIETY 1895 Officers. First Term.

THE PHOENIX STAFF— VOLUME XX. The Young Friends Association. ■HIS Asssociation is intended primarily for students, instructors, and other members of our College community; but a considerable number of the neighbors are members, and are identified with its work. The objects of the organization are two-fold: First, the study of the history, literature, and principles of the Society of Friends, and second, the consideration of the vital questions of religion and spirituality which we meet in our everyday life. The regular meetings are held in the College parlor, on the evening of the third First- dav of every month during the College year. OFFICERS. President: Anna W. W- ters, 1902.

To him who, for the love of College, holds Commonion with our HALCYON, it speaks A various language: for his gayer hours It has a jesting humor, harmless fun And wittiness absurd, — yet doth it seem Unto his deeper musings as a true And loving picture, that recalls to him His days of youth ere he ' s aware. When thoughts Of those once happy days come like a flood Over thy spirit, and when memories fond Of the gray walls, the campus, and the hall. And dear companions, ne ' er to be forgotten. Make thee to ponder and grow sad at heart, — Oh, then consider these few leaves, and love Our HALCYON ! 128 Transformed. The golden splendor flees across the skies, Before the storm ' s fierce, threatening outposts driven ; On western hills the daylight faints and dies. And all the air with shafts of fire is riven. Changed seems the world: the youth who hurries on With eager heart and light, to understand Life ' s secrets, sees relentless Sorrow, wan, Holding the cup of trembling in her hand ; Yet not a moment falters, face to face He drains her bitter draught without a cry ; Lo! his the victory, for from that place A Hero goes, a Man who can defy Earth ' s tumult and its strife, within his eyes The glory and the strength of sacrifice. A Cat ' s Tale. [told by the cat.] My family, I must confess, Were ordinary cats ; Tliey had no false pretensions And were not aristocrats. They cut me and they slash me. And they turn me o ' er and o ' er, And they sputter out all sorts of names I never heard before. But I was fond of social life, And one day I was caught, And with many gay companions To the College I was brought. At bones and veins and arteries Each one must have a look ; And they say enough about my nerves To fill a large-sized book. By the wicked use of chloroform They made me feel quite dead. And, plunged in horrid alcohol, Put a weight upon my head. My cranium is a wonder. And you ' d find it quite in vain To remember all the parts that go To form my massive brain ! But of the weight which holds me down I murmur not a word, For, as it keeps my spirits up, Complaint would be absurd. And since I ' m so important And absorbing, and all that, There ' s a volume all about my charms : It ' s simply called, " The Cat. " And then when Dr. Trotter And the Juniors all come in, I ' m brovtght out for their inspection And my troubles then begin. 130 So, with honors heaped upon me. And grown quite aristocratic — I scorn the day I lived on rats Or caught mice in an attic ! . fl Si . eco i(Ta( NINETEEN-ONE SENIOR DIGNITY. Senior Dignity. Four long years of College training, Four long years of work and play, Four long years of upward striving. Toiling on life ' s hard pathway. Now at last are won the laurels, Won the honor and respect ; Won the dignity and sweetness Which from such we must expect. Under-classmen gaze with longing- While they talk on problems deep, While they settle knotty questions, And their quiet pathways keep. Leading all to kindly thinking, Leading to a better life, Leading, by their gentle precept, Far from quarrel and from strife. Blessings on the Senior stauding ! Next year we assume that place, Hoping that we may prove worthy Of that dignity and grace. 131 Ein Jungling Falling Downing. Es giebt a puer upon this mundus Who had a corpus sehr profundus. To play at foot-ball puer amabat, And at lacrosse so schon pugnabat — Dass all who saw the bona teama Erlvlarte ihn a " whooping screamer. " He had a gait quite elegantus And ran wie eine elephantus ; But ach ! he was zu gross a homo To fit an ordinary domo, Et while in Economics sitzen Der gate Stuhl fang an zu splitzen ! Profundus uproar puerorum. Affrighted girls run outum doorum. The crash of falling homo bonus Shakes campus, portico, et domus — And Prex sans chapeau soon occurrit To see and hear the reason for it, And puer in this saddum plightum, Waves arms and legs ad infinitum. Propterea the fuss he ' machen Es war unmoglich nicht zu lachen. Prseceptor Hull and die Student! Forgot sein biicher and laughed a plenty. At last, from out this devastation, The lad arose without elation. But with a schone smile he dixit That with a hammer he could fix it. But fracus magnus was not ended, For ere der Stuhl could be amended He tried the strongest alliorum And soon was flatum on the floorum. And now, alas ! he ' s smashed so many That alle Kinder have not any — The Faculty, with great dejection, Sit tailor-fashion in Collection — And Social Hour is quite forlornum Since chairs and " pets " are allem gonum. 132 Frozen Love. A MELLOW-DRAMA IN TWO ACTS. Dramatis Persona. CuPi o — A sweet young thing — a Senior — whose heart is hovering between Marie and Alix. Tom Smith — An unknown villain, who travels under the alias of " Smithie. " Mad about Marie. Bill — His accomplice — dark and deep. Marie — From " Paree " — a love-lorn brunette. Alix — A love-lorn blonde. Act I. [Scene — In the boys ' gymnasium; the masked Hal- lowe ' en ball is at its height. Cupid, disguised, is observed hovering near the ice-cream freezers.] Cupid. — Ah ! now ' s the time. If once the noise in- creases And rises to a deafening height, ' tis then With clattering plate and spoon I ' ll easy take. With lightning speed, four bricks from out the freezer ; And then, when close attention is quite drawn To funny antics of the German gang, I ' ll haste me out to sigh to sweet Marie And witty Alix, and with frozen sweets Will tempt their palates and in sweetest tones Will tell them of the state my heart is in, And beg to be their slave forevermore. The Villain (observing Cupid in meditation) — What mischief plots he now, I ' d like to know? What mushy plan to gain the fickle love Of sweet Marie, the belle of the North Wing? He ' s tried at Social Hour, at meal, at dance. By sending flowers, and feasts, and sundry things ; And yet I ' ve foiled him in the vain attempt To gain one smile the more from sweet Marie. Yet what new wrinkle plans the love-sick lad ? I ' ll take my guard, and keep my eagle eye Fixed on his motions. Bill, my keen-eyed friend. Art fond of an adventure and of spoils? Then aid me in the foiling of this fool. And follow me wherever he doth lead. [Ctirtain. ' ] 33 Act II. [Scene — Plateau beneath the window of Marie and Alix on the North Wing. A crescent moon hangs over the trees in the west, casting a pale light on Cupid as he steals from the gymnasium, soon followed by Smithie and Bin.] Smithie (in ghostly whisper) — ' Tis now I see his sweet concocted plan To send the maidens dainties extra sweet, And frozen into bricklets, nice and square. But ' neath the maidens " boudoir there ' s a room Now dark and drear — a fitting, spooky place. From which to see and hear his cunning plans. Quick, quick, good Bill, and hither will we hie To aid him in. his way of making love! [Exeunt Smithie and Bill.] Cupid (advancing slowly under the window, whistles an air from an opera) — [Two heads appear at the window.] Marie — Ah. ' tis the signal ! Sing, O Alix, sing To let him know that we indeed are here ! [They sing, " Love, love, love, dreaming of love so true. Happy heart — " ] Alix (interrupting) — See, Marie, see, What ' s on the plate he bears within his hand? Indeed, I scent the odor of a dish Of ice cream and of dainty little cakes ; How good they look ! Methinks I love him more Than ever I have loved a lad before. Cupid (sighing like a furnace) — Fair maidens, e ' er my full heart breaks in twain For keeping to myself my deep affection. Accept from me this paltry little gift Of frozen dainties and of cookies sweet; And know that in each brick of frozen cream Is well congealed my ardent love for you ; And as each spoonful melts upon your lips. May it be a sweet and tender billet-doux. Marie — Ah, Alix, listen to his ardent pleading. While I search for a basket and a string To send down to the youth, lest, to our sorrow. The ice cream melts e ' er he is thro ' his rhyming, And we have had no taste, for e ' en in moonlight. My heart yearns more for ice cream than his verses. [The basket slowly descends, and while Cupid tenderly places therein each brick, a sepulchral voice is heard:] Now, William, my true friend, now is our chance To turn his well-laid plans to smithereens. Marie (starting) — Ah, Alix, did there strike upon thine ear A voice then, most familiar in its sound? Alix — Nonsense, Marie; pull carefully at the string. Or back the basket tumbles to the earth. Here, let me aid thee. Look, Marie ! what ' s that 134 Which sudden shoots from out the window there And grabs our basket in a grasp of iron? Pull with thy strength ! In vain ! in vain ! Methinks I saw the coat-sleeve on the villain ' s arm ! Ah— h— h— [Marie faints.] Alix (screaming) — Ah, dear youth, flee Lest the base villains scramble after thee ! [Alix faints.] Bill (dark and deep, from the window) — Ha ! ha ! you lady fusser ! [Quick curtain.] Intercessional. From a West Window. The cedars through the snowing Like white-robed friars stand ; The North Wind still is blowing His white dust o ' er the land. Queen of the upper Orient, Maid of the far-flung butter-plate, Beneath whose awful aim we shrink When we come out for water, late. Oh, one above us, spare us yet ! Can ' t you forget? Can ' t you forget? Thou seem ' st immutable as Time, As stern and merciless as Fate ; As soon as we begin to pump Thou hurlest down the butter-plate. Relent, O Queen, and spare us yet ! Can ' t you forget? Can ' t you forget? At night, when Nature drops to sleep. We thirst, and know not where to go. We know thou wait ' st above the well, We know the power of thy blow ; Our parched throats we dare not wet; Can ' t you forget? Can ' t you forget? The world is cowled and cloaken With a garment smooth as silk. All untarnished, all unbroken, Save where Alvin came for milk.

The night was dark and gloomy, And the wind was shrewd and shrill, As the trembling pilgrim hastened To the old shop on the hill. Now he wins the ancient building. Now he wins the eaves-trough ' s rim, And he sees beneath a pebble A screed aw.aiting him. He tumblelh from the roof O, go } ' 0U soft, my pilgrim man, With that, your precious load ! He slips from off the giddy perch And rolls into the road. He findeth he is up against it II Eke quickly then he oped the note, With dismal thoughts and sore ; Eke quickly then he cast his eye And read its horrid lore. 136 The note telleth him to go many miles Telleth him to rubber behind a scrub oak Here the patriarch Balaam, the writer of the note, josheth with him He meeteth a hot dog He findeth the oak. Glee III " O pilgrim chill, go down the road, Hustle, with time no loss, And ere you come to Clifton Heights, An old tree, with a Cross IV " Cut in its side, you there shall view; Now stop and look behind The ancient oak, and straitly take Each thing that you may find.

When breakfast comes at half-past eight, With students all on time ; When Mrs. Bond is sometimes late, And thinks it is no crime ; When Mrs. S. is smiling bright At pranks that she may see; When Supe can make the bells ring right- But that will never be! When Dr. Hull will learn to say One sentence in an hour ; When Hoadley learns to write a lay Without curve-paper ' s power; When " Appsie " in Collection Hall Holds bachelor reverie ; When Esther Moore comes back next fall. But that will never be ! When Jenks is not a chronic Fresh., When " Stock " acquires some grace; And Teddy does as he is bid When told to rest his face; When Jenkins learns that he has less Of rare ability ; When Milton stops his Lipp-iness, — But that will never be! When Alice A. will speak to us As we go smiling by ; When dreamy Hayes will learn to cuss. Or know the reason why; When Battin says that " It was " Instead of saying " we, " And gives a grade that ' s passing high,- But that will never be! When " Pud " shall cease to be a swell, And " Beshie " is not late ; When Johnson hears the rising bell, And " Lambie " finds her mate; When Ida is not always (W)right, And Edson skates with three; When Peters is not called a sloth, — But that will never be! When Winifred will kindly leave One honor for the rest ; When Lulu ' s puns, her friends believe, Have wholesome wit and jest ; When " Caddy " C. stops preaching And giving bounteously ; When Betty stops her screeching, — But that will never be! 140 And when the Glee Club learns to sing, And not get off the key ; When to Collection we can bring Our bashful Faculty ; And when the " cases " do not use The Alcove ' s privacy, And cease Miss Nowell to amuse, — But that will never be ! When 1 90 1 acquires some sense. And even smaller knowledge ; And graduates with no pretense From our time-honored College ; When chunks of green at last roll ofT Of verdant 1903 ; The frogs will get the whooping-cough. But that will never be ! 141 Farce. Actors: The riz ' al Classes of ipoi and ipo2. [presented in the college of swarthmore in the year iqoi.] Act I. [Scene I. — Students ' room, December i8th, 1900.] Delegate of 1901 (speaks to Secretary of Class of 1902) — Ye ladies of the class below, I ' ve come to learn whate ' er you know Concerning our lamented book Which from the hallway you once took. The time for jokes has long gone by, — As upper classmen we must try To put all petty strifes away ; " Peace " be our motto, day by day. In no oiiEcial way I ask, But as a friend I do this task. Secretary of 1902 — You ask me if I ' ll get for you Your minute-book from 1902, — If we are willing to restore The treasured book to a ' ou once more? Well, since in friendly terms you speak. The gay West Wingers I will seek And ask if any will refuse To get the book you want to use. Act II. [Scene I. — January loth. Room I. President and Delegate of 1901 present 1902 ' s action.] Delegate — Dear classmates, we are gathered here To learn of that which we hold dear. Not very many weeks ago. To several Juniors I did go, And told them (in official guise) We wished the book they held as prize. They promised me it should be done And soon returned to 1901. We know no action has been taken, So let us all their fears awaken. Refusing Halcyons to buy. When this they hear they will comply. [Scene II. — 12.45 p- i- Delegate from 1901 ad- dresses 1903 class meeting.] Delegate — The famovis class of 1901 Has promised 1902 ' s book to shun ; T42 And since we are your allies true, We simply say, " It ' s up to you. " With our decision now you ' ll side And stick to us whate ' er betide. The Halcyon you must not take ; Of course, you ' ll do this for our sake. Act III. [Scene I. — Day after. Junior Class meeting.] President — I ' ve asked you to assemble here To hearken to a letter queer, — The Senior Class has deemed it best To send a threat and no request. [Secretary reads 1901 ' s refusal to buy Halcyons. Shouts of laughter arise.] President — Of course, each one will understand Just what is meant by this demand. No former note has been received. And their own class has been deceived ; And all, I ' m sure, will but agree From every blame our class is free. The answer, then, I leave to you ; Consider well what we must do. [Delegate from 1904 enters.] Delegate — My allies true, I have been sent To tell you Naughty-four ' s intent. We pledge ourselves, if loss ensue, To buy not one, but even two. So, if need be, we you implore Just call on us, young Naughty-four. [Much applause.] Member of 1902 — Mr. President, since first you spoke This thing has seemed a monstrous joke. I cannot see what they will gain ; ' Tis true the threat has been in vain. The answer, then, is simply " No, ' ' Our strong position this will show. Act IV. [Scene I. — January 14th. Senior Class meeting. 1902 ' s reply read.] President — Our standing now is known to all ; Perhaps it would be best to " crawl, " And smooth this o ' er as best we can, For all is changed since we began. They now have got the upper hand, — • The Halcyon they do command. So let us one and all unite To put this matter out of sight. [Exit.] Envoi. Ah ! Seniors, learn, when on a quest. The latest laughter is the best ; " That he who fights, then runs away. Will live to fight another day. " 143 The Parcels in the Hall. A Freshman went to luncheon at a monstrous rapid pace, If there ' d been another of him j ' ou ' d have called the stunt a race ; But the doors closed tight upon him, he had to sign, and all — Because he stopped to look at the parcels in the Hall. A Junior at dinner told a " Fresh. " she should not budge Until she ' d sworn to meet him in the alcove with some fudge ; The Freshman kept her promise, but he missed his treat — and all — Because he stopped to look at the parcels in the Hall. A Soph ' more came in late to " Trig. " with worn and worried look. He got a zero in his work and a " below zero " look ; For the Prof, indeed was angry, and the trouble happened all — Because he stopped to look at the parcels in the Hall. A grave, unhurried Senior who carried hat and cane. Had quite decided that he ' d take the 7.11 train; But the train went in and left him, — he was very mad — and all — Because he stopped to look at the parcels in the Hall. Now, harken, good St. Peter, to the teaching of my rime, If you hope to get the Swarthmore folk to Heaven in good time ; And I warn you, Angel Gabriel, e ' er you give the final call. Please remove all paper parcels from the corners of vour hall ! 144 AII-Night Gas. An old girl came back to visit and to roam the College o ' er, — Said she to me, quite earnestly, when she had seen each floor: " There ' s a difference in the College — how has it come to pass ? ' ■ " And I answered very proudly, " We now have all- night gas. " " And the maidens in the morning, when the bells rang their alarms. In spite of ' Kids ' and curling tongs, left off their curly charms ; Yet now each one has wavy hair, — how manages each lass? " I answered with a knowing wink, " We now have all-night gas. " " When I was here, " she reminisced, " straight at th ' eleventh hour. Old William bold, as he was told, turned off the luminous power ; ' Twas our sad way to flunk next day, — do you ever flunk in class? " And I answered very proudly, " We now have all- night gas. " " When our feasts were at their highest and the fudge was nearly done. The light went out, the fudge was spoiled, as also was our fun. Then we screamed and laughed and scrambled. — how those happy days did pass ! " And I murmured rather sadly, " We now have all- night-gas. ' ' Lament. Exams are done, and vacation Comes to the student ' s mind. Like balm on a wearied spirit When cares are left behind. Yet a feeling of sadness comes o ' er me That is almost akin to pain, .As I silently take my paper And learn that I ' ve flunked again. M5 With Apologies to Adelaide Anne Proctor. Seated one night at my studies, I was weary and ill at ease, And my thoughts were wandering idly Over the fathomless seas; The} ' quieted all my longing For the home that was far away ;, They seemed as guardian angels That would watch me day by day. I know not where I was roaming On the waves with their white-crested foam, Till soft o ' er the lonely campus Came the words of " Home, Sweet Home. " They brightened my barren surroundings, Casting a loving light. Then trembled away into silence, Into the depths of the night. They flooded my moonlit chamber As if they had come to command ; They lay on my troubled spirit Like the touch of mother ' s hand. I have sought, but I seek all vainly Those moments to restore. That came with infinite blessing To a heart that was weary and sore. Perhaps it was the moonlight. Or the lands where I wanted to roam, — It may be that only my longing Made me love that " Home, Sweet Home. ' 146 To Our Fools, Oh, you who take my good Pears ' soap and write upon my glass, Mayhap you deem yourself a wit, but I think you an ass. You may think that you do it when there ' s not a soul aboutj But the Fool-Killer ' ll git you ef you don ' t watch out! Oh, you who whistle loudly when the ' Varsity ' s asleep, Who love to hear them wake and utter curses loud and deep, You may run where ' er you want to, you may cringe and spy and scout. But the Fool-Killer ' ll git you ef you don ' t watch out! And you who do these crazy stunts around the Col- lege here. You ' d better go and hide your heads, and shrink in trembling fear, Y ' ou may think he isn ' t watching, but he ' s coming, don ' t you doubt. And the Fool-Killer ' ll git you ef you don ' t watch out ! 147 When we all came back to College in the Fall. It ' s a saying, old and trite, That time causes in its flight Many unexpected changes great and small ; But we never really thought Of what wonders it had wrought Till we all came back to College in the fall. Still, on signing all intent. Each to Prex ' s office went, Across the fine new carpet in the hall; But Miss Moore had abdicated, And her post long had vacated. Ere we all came back to College in the fall. When we entered the front door. As we ' d often done before. The place looked hardly natural at all ; For ' twas filled with palm trees green. And the " pets " could not be seen. When we all came back to College in the fall. Truly, we were heavy-hearted. Learning that she had departed. She and others who were gone beyond recall ; But we soon found newer faces That could fill the vacant places. When we all came back to College in the fall. Yes, there ' re changes, certainly, But I know you ' ll all agree That it ' s still the same old College with them all ; And. whate ' er we felt before. That each year we love it more. As we all come back to College in the fall. 148 Naughty-Twos(ing), Billy Walker ' s Sentiments on Chivalry. Oh ! we Naughty-twos are a merry crowd, We never miss a lark, And among our talents it ' s always allowed That twosing deserves remark. How the Student Government we appal, How our marks we are constantly losing, By wasting the moments in alcove and hall On that naughty game of twosing! Now, here ' s to the cases our numbers enroll, The faithful and fickle ones, both ! All our toils and our vigils they sweetly console. While we struggle for wisdom ' s growth. For, so brilliant we are and such wonders we do, Our brains need some amusing. So here ' s to our dear old Naughty-Two, And here ' s to our Naughty Twosing! There happened once A tete-a-tete In the Phccni.r room,- Sad to relate ! The Dean came by : ' Twas Jerry ' s fate ; Her wrath he must Ameli(a)rate. " Chivalrous days are gone by, " Argued a lively young girl, " The men nowadays have forgotten those things Which once put our hearts in a whirl. " Let ' s suppose that you went for a walk With a girl that you greatly admired. And you came to a street all covered with mud, And every carriage was hired — " Would you la_v down your cloak, as Sir Walter did. And think it a trifling loss? ' ' " Ah, no, " said the youth, " a much better way, — Fd carry the lady across. " Oh ! Fudge What ' s that a-ringin ' down the hall, and singin ' through my head, A-makin ' such an awful fuss, when white folks are abed? Flark ! ' tis a street piano, or a circus, I should judge. No ! it ' s only Doctor Cummings and his bugle-call — " Oh! Fudge! " 149 JANUARY li " Doings. Sept. 28th. Sept. 29th. Oct. 2d.

A NiNETEEN-ONE and a Nineteen-two Were wrangling as of yore, And as they debated each argument new, A maid of Nineteen-four Looked on with wonder and reverence At the play of wit and superior sense. Now I blusli this monstrous truth to confess, But these upper-classmen bet (For truth will out — I can do no less) Six sodas to six — they were set For neither was willing an inch to recede. So they turned to the Freshman to witness the deed. The Senior gentl} ' and winningly said, " Won ' t you act as referee? " Demurely the little one hung her head, She blushed. " Sir, I will be, " — Murmured in voice that timidly shakes, — ' If, you ' ll only let me hold the stakes. " The morning 1)reaks, " Doc " blows his horn.

Who gets the hard knocks and gets laid on the shelf, While he plays his last ounce, as a gambler his pelf? Who is it? — The Scrub. And who, when the team plays the year ' s biggest game. Stands ready to sub without envy or shame? For deep in his heart is one thought — Swarthmore ' s fame: Who is it? — Three cheers for the Scrub ! From Swarthmore ' s Omar. A BOOK of Conies underneath the bed, A small Welsh rabbit and a crust of bread. And one to help me in my studying. Ah ! studying is Paradise, ' tis said ! 153 Consolation, Oh, sad is the lot of the poor little Fresh, Home-sick and lonely and blue; Far, far away from his loving mama. And those terrible lessons to do ! The Sophs lie in wait for him all ' round the hall, And he feels that life ' s hardly worth living at all. Yet bitter ' s the fate of those same awful Sophs, For their duty it is as they know. To look after the Freshmen with diligent zeal, And teach them the way they should go ; So they ' re weighed down A ' ith trouble and sorrow and care, And think that their burden ' s too heavy to bear. But hard is the life of the tall, stately Juniors, — Steady, continuous work ; For their Halcyon has to be out in the spring. But won ' t if their duty they shirk ; So their brains they must rack by night and by day, Till they cultivate wrinkles and early turn gray. Alas ! for the Seniors, what pen can relate Their terrible story of woe? With Commencement orations and theses to write, Surely very great sorrow they know ! And then Shakespeare Evening has troubles beside, So the poor, weary things almost wish they had died. Yes, truly, we ' re in a deplorable state, And sad is the life that we lead. For we ' re hustled and hurried from morning till night In a heart-rending manner indeed ; Yet there ' re gains for our losses and balms for our pains. And just let us bear it in mind. And be glad that in good skating weather a large Crum(b) of comfort we easily find. 154 The Question. O SHADES of That haunt O ) ' Oung and That left its O knig " hts of O maidens Come, tell us And what it the departed these College halls ; hopeful spirits sheltering walls ; youth and valor, brave and true, of the future held for vou ! Fulfillment of the promise That the hope of youth imparts,- The image of the future That is printed in our hearts, — The age of truth and wisdom That we fondly hope to see, — Will they always be as distant As they now appear to be? The Answer. Through broken hopes that vanish The goal seems far away. And to-morrow ' s sun is darkened By the shadows of to-day; The steps of human progress Seem but slow to anxious youth ; But the growth is sure and stead} ' . On to Beauty and to Truth ! Fulfilment of the promise, The hope and image fair, The purest aspirations The heart has cherished there, Have their answer in the future, And 3 ' e faithful ones shall see All of good you ever longed for, Ever willed or hoped to be ! IS5 The Rape of the Lock, (revised edition.) Canto I. What dire offence from am ' rous causes springs, AAHiat mighty contests rise from trivial things, I sing. The sad occasion was in May, When came the moon and Cjuite ecHpsed the day. Out came, with smoky glass to see the view Of such a rare event, so strange and new, The Student Body, eager, every one. To see the little moon obscure the sun. Canto II. Not with more glories in the ' therial plain The sun first rises o ' er the purple main, Than comes Clorinda with her hazy glass, And dances lightly o ' er the jeweled grass. Fair nymphs and well-dressed 3 ' ouths around her shone. But every eye was fixed on her alone. Her lively looks a sprightly mind disclose, Quick as her eyes, and as unfixed as those. Favors to none, to all she smiles extends ; Oft she rejects, but never once offends. Yet graceful ease and sweetness, void of pride. Might hide her faults, if belles had faults to hide. Canto III. This nymph, to the distraction of mankind, Had graceful locks which fell before, behind, And as the moon slips down before the sun, They reached her ears — eclipsed them every one ! Canto IV. And with his apparatus well prepared. Came Robert, and these observations shared- And Milton, too, resolved to go to class Informed upon the wonders of the (g)lass ! Canto V. These youths upon the wonder not intent, Their gaze upon Clorinda soon they bent ; An understanding flashed between their eyes. For now they saw the means to gain a prize. But one swift hand ' twould take to do the job- The execution was assigned to Bob. 156 Canto VI. So while Clorinda raised lier lovely eyes Intent on gazing at the darkening skies, Onr Robert singled out a crooked hair And severed it from its companions fair. Canto VII. Alas ! then did the nymph the parting feel, And turning quickly on her little heel, She flashed such glances from her angry eyes That lengthy Robert shrank to half his size ! And Milton, being of a lesser height, Was promptly shriveled nearly out of sight ! Canto VIII. But these Clorinda could not long subdue, And when their courage rose their stature grew. Mth energy and anger close allied The maid declared she would be satisfied. Canto IX. And when again her angry passion rose She wiped her glass across his handsome nose ! And then when Milton tried to intervene A blacker nose upon his face was seen ! Canto X. Ah, me ! What dire confusion then arose ! Repaired each culprit to repair his nose. The maiden left alone to view the sun Began to mourn this hasty action done. ' ' Twas meet, " she said, " they had their noses smeared, But what if neither one again appeared? " This awful thought engendered other fears. And soon the maiden was reduced to tears ; And while the darkness did the campus cover Down, down, she sank ! Life ' s tragedy was over ! 157 To Johnnie. To thee, kind friend of our long College life, Mute teacher who will never be forgot — To thee, who sharest in all our fun and strife, And helpest lighten every student ' s lot ; Who with the single talent God has given (The art of being true in little things) Hast humbly climbed the rugged hill to Heaven, And waitest till the summoning angel brings The tidings from the Father, when thee ' ll go And lay thy treasure at the Judge ' s feet. And stand in garments pure and white as snow. Upon the right hand of the Judgment seat, — To thee we humbly bow in reverence still For teaching us to do our Father ' s will. 158 Freshman Wit. Swarthmore ' s Omar. The daintiest little maiden That ever you did spy Has come to Swarthmore College With aspirations high. Oh, come and fill your Cup with Coffee black, And cram those Rules and work those Problems back ; To-morrow ! — why. To-morrow we may be Graded with those who ' ve Flunked before, alack ! She captures many brave young hearts And wounds them with her dart ; This coquettish Freshman lady Knows well her happy art. For many who, with lingering steps and slow, Used Unprepared to Mathematics go. Have taken Finals in Collection Hall, And, one by one, dropped silently below. One evening Jack invited her To Social Hour with him. " Why, certainly ; Fd love to go. " (He looked so neat and trim.) Myself, when ) ' oung, did dutifully frequent Doctor and Prof., and heard great argument Of Calculus and Conies ; but it, alas ! In at one ear and out the other went. To all Jack ' s seeming bright remarks She answered with a ' smile. Till soon he caught her rapt in thought- Then promptly said meanwhile : Oh. Fears of Four and Hopes of even One ! One thought there is that certainly is Fun : No matter if we did them well or not. Papers once written are forever done. " A penny for your pleasant thoughts, " And sought her eyes of blue. " They really are not worth it. Jack, Because — they ' re all of you! " Strange, is it not? that of the many who Before us passed that awful Final through. Not one can tell us of those Questions there. Which we, to get our Marks, must answer, too. 159 Without offense to friends or foes, Wc sketch the world exactly as it goes. ' I90J.

" 162 Notes from Room D ' It is Rumored Where we tremble as we wait Our inevitable fate, And fan the paper that the ink may dry ; Then dodge down behind the back Of some literary " quack, " And thank our stars when Prof, has passed us by. It is here we encounter that doleful variety of nar- rative that invariably introduces itself with, " It was a dark and stormy night ; my good dog Tray yelped yearningly " (note the brilliant alliteration). There, too, we greet the rare jest with its " Laugh, and the world laughs with you " climax. Again we are moved to tears with " How, oh, how sad was the situation ! " and " Weep not, O drooping willows ! " But above them all, soaring on the never-tiring wings of the indulgent muse, mounts the ingenious fancy of the student- poet ' s brain. The malady takes several forms, but perhaps that with which we are most familiar begins with such refreshing lines as : " The happy spring is here at last. With leafy tree and tender grass ! " We might say that this form is one of the few dis- orders, a remedy for which even Dr. Munyon is lacking-. That The Seniors lost their Constitution. Captain Downing had a good time election night. Peters resigned as Btisiness Manager of The Phacnix. " Pop " Davis is engaged. Some of the Freshmen flunked. Hazing has been abolished. Clark knits. The Seniors won ' t buy our Halcyons. The Faculty is unpopular. Gas made quarter-back because of Marter ' s ankle. The Student Government is prospering. Alvin is conditioned. The Sophomores missed their reception. Smith was seen smoking. The Faculty plays tennis. Someone threw an egg. The Sophomores are " easy. " Supt. ' s accounts never balance. Tyson and Blades attended Faculty meeting. Anna Waters doesn ' t approve of Social Hour. The " Pets " will soon be replaced in the front hall. The Lacrosse team will go to Canada. Several students were on probation. The Price suits the Buyers. 163 Chauceriana. At Six P. M. J. E. D.- T.

When the moon comes over the eastern trees, When the long, black shadows fall. When the cricket calls to his wandering mate ' Neath the ivy-covered wall, Then I long for the cliff and the wind-swept hill, And the land that waits for me. There the brown hills sleep in the autumn wind, And the hemlocks whisper low; There the pines sing softly the long night through To the river far below, And the stream from the rocks sends an answering call In the land that waits for me. There the nodding fern greets the crimson dawn. And the wild vine climbs the oak; There the rock is cleft for the housing-place Of strange, shy woodland folk. And the hill-spring murmurs through lingering years In the land that waits for me. Then I look again through the misty past, And the sunset ' s afterglow Seems to waver along the friendly slopes. And the shadows come and go As they beckon me, beckon me back to my home In the land that waits for me. And the moon comes over the eastern trees. And the long, black shadows fall, And the cricket calls to his wandering mate ' Neath the ivy-covered wall.

This yeai- from distant shore and foreign land From Albion ' s lovely isle across the sea, From tropic Indus, and from Germany, As from Columbia ' s most learned band. Great intellects have here with kindly hand Sown seeds to ripen in futurity ; Into our country ' s strength and majesty. Into its pillars, straight and tall and grand. Perchance in stony places some seeds fell. Or by the wayside, bare and lone and drear ; But some in fertile soil are rooted well. To live and grow straight upward without fear ; And some day may the breezes, whispering low. Appr ise those sowers how their good seeds grow. 167 How Would You Like to See Dick Peters look pleasant?

(A LA THE EAST WING.) A WAITING, a throwing, a running, a thump, A rushing, a pushing, a skipping, a jump, A scrambling, a falling, a tearing of hair, A pitching — and lo! the ball isn ' t therein A passing, a grabbing, a snapping, a fall, A seizing, a rolling, a scrapping, a squall, A shoving, a snatching, a kicking, a roll, A dashing, a bounding, a tossing — a goal ! A throwing, a guarding, a shoving, a fall, A moaning, a groaning, a loosing the ball, A calling, a kicking, an ankle that ' s lame, A rushing, a whistling — the end of the game! Freshman going on a spree Meets the youths of 1903 ; Freshie keeping still and mum Takes a dip into the Crum ; Sophie meets P. Rex next day. Has to tell about the fray; Prexie makes a rigid rule, " No more hazins: in this school. " As Usual. It came to pass, upon a time. He went to church and made a rhyme. The rhyme was poor, the meter worse, The theme would make an angel curse. He wrote and wrote — till he was done- Then gave it to the Halcyon. 168 Stray Facts. Waiting. Our Professors belong to a numerous band Who never seem able to quite understand That study ' s a pleasure Reserved for one ' s leisure, And only pursued when there ' s nothing on hand. Greek, German, Geometry, all start with G ' s, But who is enabled to end them with E ' s? Though you really don ' t care For a flunk here and there, They interfere greatly with getting degrees. We all know a fairy by means of whose skill We are changed into Portias and Hamlets at will ; But to make love or die With the Class standing by Is, putting it mildly, a right bitter pill. Miss Nowell is burdened with numberless cares When the reading-room ' s thickly besprinkled with pairs. For as soon as she looks They are deep in their books, And a sweet smile of innocence each reader wears. Second Floor. When the twilight bell is ringing to the skaters on the Crunij When Johnnie with the mail-box has climbed the asphaltum, When the village lights are shining, though the stars are very pale. Then Susan J. is waiting in the alcove for the mail. Third Floor. When the good East Wing is silent and study has begun ; When Social Hour ' s over, for all the girls save one; When no one ' s by to see it, and the moon won ' t tell the tale. Then Susan A. is waiting in the alcove for the male. Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend. Before we, too, must home to Father send, Swamped in a sea of Dues and Unpaid Bills, Sans Cash, sans Check, sans Credit, and — sans Friend ! You may talk of your London fog. Or of others upon your list. If you ' d once strike this Swarthmore bog You ' d get lost and never be mist. 169 His Last Having. " Now here they come again, " sohloquized the Skeleton, and he rattled his dry hands together ex- citedly, " and I just won ' t stand it — Why, last year they hung me up on the dome, and goodness knows, that was shock enough for a lifetime ! and now here they come again. I say, I just won ' t stand it ! Oh, what are they trying to do? They can ' t get in here, " and he clutched the frail door-casing desperately with his long, white fingers. There was a short, rasping sound — then something snapped. " Oh, now they ' ve done it! Now they ' ve done it, and — " A pair of strong arms encircled his tall, loose frame. He felt himself lifted and carried out across the echoing room. " Open the window there, Jones, " squeaked a voice from behind him, and the Skeleton shivered as a great gust of snow and wind came driving in. " Now, boost him up, " came a voice from the ledge. " That ' s it ! Head erect, shoulders back, chest out ! Feet over the edge there ! Why, it ' s a regular picnic for Bones ! Just a little moonlight frolic, isn ' t it, old boy? " The window rattled down noisily. The boys did not hear the plaintive sob from the ledge. " If we hadn ' t Bones, don ' t know what we would do, " whispered Baker on the stairs, " and he ' s so easy to handle. Now there was that calf last year; well. that was different; he seemed so nervous and so anxious to be going home that — " " Douce that glim, there, Jones, here comes Billie! " Next morning there was consternation in the Col- lege. The skeleton from the Museum had been found broken and dismembered in the snow by the west wall. :|: :|t ♦ In the snow along the ledge above were strange, faint tracks, resembling neither those of man nor any familiar thing, but such a trail as the wind might make with a swaying, bended bush. The kind of letter Father shuns Doth read like this: " I ' m out of funds. Please do send a twenty back. Love to all. Sincerelv, Jack. " We know a Professor named Guyer, Who doctors the boiler-room fuyer, Who writes odes to the " Clips, " Instead of red lips, And keeps growing buyer and buyer. There is a young Junior named Davy, With complexion and hair like a baby, ' Though mild as a lamb He one day said " D - - n ! " When the waitress submerged him in gravy. 170 Epilogue The music ceases and the footlights die, The air grows chill, — Yet there floats upward through the drowsy dark Some fragrance still Of the sweet flowers that the maidens wore, And echoes of their songs lilt past us o ' er and o ' er. So, when our College days are past and dead And we grow old. May memory bring back the songs we sung, The tales we told, In those dear days of youth so glad and free, Back in the morn of life under the greenwood tree. 171 j wywyvwwywwwwwwvwvwwwwwwwvvwvwvy dvertisetnents mmmmmmmmmmmmRmmmmmm The attention of all students is called to the advertisers in this book.
