SWAHTHMORE COLLEGE 17 7 DDbbM [:)1D7 LD5198 .H2 1918 c. 3 The Halcyon i PdlcwoT? " -noi Oif Jutfioir OiLSS y Robert C. Brooks Professor of Political Science THIS book is dedicated 3n entorY of OUR FRIEND AND CLASSMATE ILLONA Anna Forgeng WHO DIED OCTOBER 14, 1916 Tfn emoriam TFn (tmorp of Walter Dennison WHO WAS TO THE STUDENTS OF SWARTHMORE COLLEGE AN INSPIRING TEACHER, A BELOVED COUNCILLOR AND A SINCERE FRIEND M .ll£Y0i ®f 191i Some Stu6ent Oralis DEARLY every one who tries to portray contemporary college life falls into the error of tliinking it maj ' he done by a few bold strokes of the brush. Thus r lind Mr. Walter Lippnian asserting that " the American college student has the gravity and mental habits of a Supreme Court Judge. " Conceived as a subtly worded case of contempt of court, this sentence rises to the sublime heights of blasphemy. As an attempt at careful exposition it sinks to the ridiculous. Still I have known some few students who were grave, — con- genitally so, it seemed to me. Others developed this trait occasionally, — during ex- aminations, for example, or when brought up before the Dean on a matter of discipline. Former President William H. Taft has attempted a composite photograph of the American student whom he chides severely for his lack of physical discipline and of erect bearing, his indifferent manners and slouchy dress. Indeed, a few years as Kent professor of law at Yale seem to have made our erstwhile conservative chief of state a decidedly- radical reformer of college abuses. Could anything more abundantlj ' estab- lish the need of prolonged, detailed and merciless muckraking in this held? And yet college men as a rule are not slouches, nor is slouchiness by any means the chief of college vices. So far as manners are concerned students have always im- pressed me as being quite as much above the average of young men of the period as we have a right to expect. A few of them, it is true, are somewhat flashy in their ap- parel although not so much so as the ubiquitous advertisements of the makers of " col- lege clothes " would have us believe. But this is a minor matter, as is also the occa- sional slipshod character of the student dress in the semi-privacj ' of the campus. The one serious charge in Professor Taft ' s indictment, that of a lack of physical discipline, can scarcely be sustained. Contrast the trim, erect, athletic undergraduate with the greasy-ej ' ed, stoop-shouldered, bow-windowed business men, successful and " tired, " who ever since graduation have been leading sedentary lives, eating, drinking and smoking too much, and indulging little or not at all in vigorous sports. Indeed. I have always found alumni reunions rather painful affairs because of the rapid phj ' sical deterioration apparent in the classes which have been out five, ten, fifteen or more 3 ' ears. They remind one of ladders descending sharply, rung by rung, from perfect youthful health down through neglect to open graves. And Mr. Lincoln Steffens also generalizes too readily about undergraduate life. He writes, — yea, he even italicizes the statement that " CoUcfic stiidriitx Jian- too Diiirh rcrrrriiir. " He knows this of his own knowledge. It was true of himself, he avers. Nor, assuming the truth of this autobiographical statement, does he seem to suspect that he must have been a most unusual student, a veritable white blackbird of the campus. Reverence! ' e Gods! Reverence for whom, for what? For " Prexy " ? For their particular " Profs " ? For the " old Grads? " For " Lit, " for " Math? " For anything else in the whole divine order of the universe? Living as they do in a keenly critical atmosphere it would be surprising indeed to find much of this qualit} ' , — whether 5 ' ou consider it a virtue or a vice, — among undergraduates. And yet some reverent souls there may be still among our students, a few even in the faculties. Let it be confessed, however, that most of the influential college professors of the period can with difficulty be brought to recognize any authority except that of the more recent text-books they themselves have written. Doctor Taft came, and saw, and now " views with alarm " this tendency on the part of certain professors, presumably at Y ' ale. Surely, then, it must be more than common elsewhere. THE ymitrm ®f nm For my own part even after teaching twenty years minus Sabbaticals, it seems an extremely difficult matter to characterize the undergraduate world. Experience has convinced me that students are the most variegated and inconsistent, as well as the most lovable, species under the sun. They reflect all the virtues, somewhat magnified, and all the vices, somewhat diminished, of the American life of which they are a part. Without fear of successful contradiction, however, I shall maintain the thesis that the American college students generally are not given to over-studiousness. In so doing, permit me to apologize to the earnest and considerable minority who work con- scientiously and purposefully, often acquiring more in two years than most of their fellows do in four. And as a professor, responsible to that extent for college evils, I accept frankly the heavier end of the burden of this criticism. " Laborers, " says Mr. Steffens, " especially the lowest, most troublesome class of least ' educated ' labor, the I. W. W., are way ahead of college men. " Ah, but the col- lege man has already solved the labor problem for himself. Why should he protest, strike, resort to sabotage or other direct action? Counting class-room and laboratory time and all work of preparation the student who puts in an eight hour day is the ex- ception, so exceptional in fact that unless he conceals his industrjf he will certainly be dubbed a " greasy grind " or " dippy stude. " In most colleges of arts a six or seven hour working day is nearer the average. All yellow newspapers to the contrary not- withstanding, " breakdowns from overstudy " are the rarest of undergraduate occurrences. Xearl} ' always alleged cases of this sort will be found to be due to other causes — occa- sionally to dissipation, but more frequently to inherited taints, or to overwork outside of college coupled with physical weakness. Provision for puljlic recreation is now admitted to be part of the problem of con- structive statesmanship. The college student solved it for himself long ago. With his short working day he has ample leisure for this purpose. And he devotes himself to it with passion. Here no discipline is too hard, no coach too severe. As agencies to de- tect latent physical qualities, to develop them to the utmost and to exploit them to the greater glory of Alma Mater, American colleges lead the world. Substitute " intel- lectual " for " phj ' sical " in the preceding sentence and ponder the result. In other uses of his abundant leisure the student is not so successful. " Let George do it " might well supplant the classic inscription over most dormitory entrances. Some of the undergraduate residents more than live up to the equivocal title of this kind of housing arrangement, significantly sacred as it is to our colleges and univer- sities. And in addition to dormitories the facilities afforded by the back seats of large lecture rooms are thoroughly appreciated. Comparatively few students ever read for the pure love of reading, or, after graduation carry a liking for literature out into the world with them. P ' ather as he writes the checks, and mother as she writes the good advice, are blissfully ignorant as to the amount of time sonny manages to consume in mere vacuous fellowship. Soothed by the everlasting tinkle of the mandolin, stu- dents are wont to smoke or dawdle intermina1)l3 ' either alone or in each others rooms. And they have a Gargantuan ap])etite lor social frivolities of the most conventional and stupid sort. College men pride themselves upon their loyalty, and justly so. It is one ot the finest and most fervid of their virtues, the glamor of which lasts to the end of life. Not for worlds would I have it otherwise. Yet there is a certain narrowness in the stu- dent ' s devotion to class, fraternity, and to team, even to the college itself. Retaining all their love for these idolized institutions would it not be possible to develop a more intense interest for the great causes which, in our t nne more than any other, are bat- tling for supremacy in national and international life? In science, art, literature, and social politics there are always issues? discoveries, movements, which should evoke vigorous partisanship among undergraduates. Why should they not set themselves resolutely to the tlireshing out of the real questions of the day in both the academic and outer world? But, as Mr. Walter Lippmann maintains, it is indeed true ol the American college student of today that " his ' wild oats ' are rarely spiritual. " Superlatively amazing, also, is the lack of leaders and leadershii) in undergraduate affairs. With ample leisure for this purpose and with plenty of fine human material 10 THE K ACYOi ®r 19 H available, a student body nevertheless resembles nothing in the world so much as a flock of sheep. Some, perchance, hold aloof from the struggle on the specious pre- te xt that the} ' are preparing themselves for the sterner trials after graduation. With most, however, it is sheer ditifidence or plain preference for irresponsible drifting. Yet every baccalaureate orator in the country will soon be busy hailing 191 7 ' s crop of grad- uates as the chosen leaders of the future, specially prepared for this function b} ' their college training! Leaders there are, of course, for the various student activities. — athletic, dramatic, journalistic, religious, social, and what not. Always, however, the tendency is strongly marked for offices in these various lines to gravitate into a few hands. Out of the six hundred students sixteen become known as " live wires " of the familiar type which prides itself upon " never allowing their studies to interfere with their college work. " So common is this concentration of power in a few strong or popular hands that faculties have begun to legislate against it. Each undergraduate office is given the value of a certain n umber of points according to the time it recjuires or the honor it carries with it. No student is allowed to accumulate offices in excess of a certain num- ber of points. It is a clumsy mechanical device, a mere crutch at best, but helpful per- haps under existing conditions. What is really needed among students is a wide- spread, vigorous industrious spirit of emulation that will smash prevailing cliques and coteries into fiindereens and open wide all avenues to leadership and influence. Atheltics and social activities are useful in their place, but that place is of secondary importance. Primarily the business of the student is to study. And of the faculty to see that he does it or makes room for men who will. In spite of all the scholarships and aids there are thousands of the latter stamp outside our colleges today. An effi- cient educational system based on truly democratic lines would prevent this senseless neglect of splendid human material and the equally senseless " casting of pearls " before those not eager to treasure them. Of course this will seem a dreadfuU} ' pedantic and radical conclusion to many of my college friends. The " cakes and ale " contingent will howl over it in chorus. Dull epicureans that they are, how should they understand that only sturdy eff ort creates healthy appetite? Too well have they grasped the profound principle that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But they are prone to forget that all play and no work makes Jack a sad shirk. And those colleagues of mine who believe in " inspiration rather than perspiration " will also protest. Certainly I am not an enemy of the former, but I have never yet seen inspirations ripen unless they were plentifully v. ' atered with perspiration. All things considered, pessimism certainly is not indicated by any thoroughgoing- study and experience of American college life. If there is a body of youth anywhere on this planet more lovable, more vigorous, more clean of body and of spirit than our undergraduate men and women I have never run across it. The miracles of growth that are accomplished between the freshman and senior years constantly renew one ' s faith in human nature. Not that the college can claim credit for all the growth that the booming years between eighteen and twenty-two brings to its children. But Alma Mater at least fosters this growth with keen interest and solicitous cultivation. In the return of her children ' s love her own richest harvest is garnered. Old Ponce de Leon sought in vain the fountain of eternal youth. Many a college professor has found it in close contact and co-operation with an American student body. 11 THE ymitrm ©? 4) regress of tl)e V ar By J ' ri ' .siileiit .luaepli Swain G ment. celebrated as F ' ouiid- The exercises were President VV. H. P. President Joseph S a!n ' OMPLYING witli the reciuest from tlie Alumni Association, the Board of Managers changed Alumni Day from Third-day to Seventh-day. The change went into effect last Commence- In order to make Alumni, Baccalaureate, and Com- mencement Days on consecutive days and at the week- end, the Commencement period has been somewhat short- ened, the Commencement being held on Second-day in- stead of Fourth-day. Perhaps a longer period of trial is necessary before hnal judgment can be passed on this arrangement, but thus far the change seems to have given satisfaction. Founders ' Day Tenth month 28th, was this year ers ' Day. The attendance was large, held in the Outdoor Auditorium. Faunce of Brown University, gave the chief address. We have seldom, if ever, had at Swarthmore a more fitting or more appreciated address than that of President Faunce. The day was a fine one. The speaker placed himself in touch with the audience at once when he said, " If this is a specimen of an Octolier day at Swarthmore, then I wish that all the year were October and all the world a Swarthmore. " Wharton Hall The third and last section of Wharton Hall, the men ' s dormitory, was almost com- pleted during the past summer. In all essential particulars the building has been com- pleted as approved by the donor, Joseph Wharton. The problem of a suitable college home for the young men is now solved for this generation. In connection with the completion of Wharton Hall it seems appropriate to call attention to the fact that the dormitory for men is only one of the many gifts of Joseph Wharton for the up-building of Swarthmore. He gave the money for one-half of the Science Building: all the money for the Meeting House; he helped to endow the Library, and endowed the Professorship of Political Science. He gave in all about $250,000 to the college. During a long and useful lifetime he set a noble example of great achieve- ment, high intellectual attainment, and sterling personal character. The New Athletic Fields It has been evident for many years that some change in our athletic field was nec- essary. Whittier Field was too small, was too near buildings already erected and was the natural site for at least three new buildings. With the completion of Swarthmore and .Alumni Fields this question has been satisfactorily settled for all time. In order to make way for these fields it was necessary to move the water tank, the barn, and the servants ' quarters, and to construct new tennis courts. The grading itself involved the movement of a great amount of eartli, sliale, and solid rock, the greatest cut being about fourteen feet and the deepest fill about thirty-five feet. The money for grading the baseball field was given in part by .A ' umni and others, and the remainder for this field and all the money for the football field and track was given by Morris L. Clothier, ' 90. Tlie Committee that solicited the funds consisted of Howard Cooper Johnson, ' 96, Chair- man: Morris L. Clothier, ' 90: Henry C. Turner, ' 93, and Robert H. Walker, ' 02. . portion of the fill required for the new fields w s obtained by lowering the grade of Whittier Field and making it conform to the natural slope from the Chemistry Building to Beardsley Hall. This not only furnished material for the fill liut in addition greatly improved the a|)pcarance of this portion of the campus, and also impro c(l tlie sites for any new buildings that may be located there. The college is much indebted to all tliose who have contributed to make this movement possible, but feels esijecially indebted to Morris L. Clothier, who gave so generously, both of his money and time, that the College might have these large, lieautiful, and conveniently located fields. Beardsley Hall The Engineering Slio]) liuilding, in Tenth Month last, was named by the Board of Managers, Beardsley Hall, in recognition of the devoted and efficient services of Arthur 12 M llCYOi ®F 191© Beardsley. for eighteen years in the Department of Engineering. It is a matter of grati- fication that this tribnte to the late Professor Beardsley was given while he was yet ' ' " ' " S- Jonathan K. Taylor Scholarship By the will of the late Jonathan K. Taylor, Swarthmore College is to receive the sum of $10,000 to establish a scholarship. The condition of the gift is in part as follows: ' T give and bequeath to Swarthmore College, Swarthmore. Pennsylvania, the sum of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) for the purpose of a perpetual scholarship, to be know as the ' Jonathan I-v. Taylor Scholarship. ' I direct that the recipients of this schol- arship shall be selected by the Board of Trustees of the Baltimore Monthly Meeting of Friends, Park Avenue. American Astronomical Society The American Astronomical Society held its nineteenth annual meeting at Swarth- more College in the Sproul Observatory August 28th. to September 2nd, 1916. There were present eighty-five astronomers, coming from all parts of the United States and Canada; also a representative from Japan, two from Holland, and one from Belgium The membership of the society includes the greatest astronomers of America, most of whom were present, among them being the President of the Society, Professor Edward C. Pickering, Director of the Harvard College Observatory: Dr. L. A. Bauer, Director of the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism of the Carnegie Institution of ashing- t.on: Director Schlesinger of Allegheny Observatory ' , Director Fox of Dearborn Observatory, Director Mitchell of McCormick Observatory, Director Doolittle of Flower Observator} ' , Professor Brown of Yale, Professor Russell of Princeton, and Professor Eichelberger, Director of the Nautical Almanac, The name of Anna J. Cannon of the Harvard College Observatory should be mentioned as she is the most distinguished woman astronomer in the world. Department of German As is generally known. Dr. Benjamin F. Battin has spent the time since the begin- ning of the European war in doing what he could to help establish better international relations. He has become so much absorbed in this work, ha ing a deep concern that it is his duty to continue it, that the Board of Managers have with great regret accepted his resignation from his present position. It is desired that he in some way, however, continue his connection with his Alma Mater. The College is fortunate in having Dr, Clara Price Newport to succeed him as Professor of German. She is a graduate of the College, has for five 3 ' ears had charge of a department in the absence of the head, is thoroughl} ' familiar with the ideals and workings of the College, and is in every waj ' equipped for this service. Proposed Girls ' Dormitory Shorth ' before last Commencement, J. S. and ' . P. Worth e.xpressed a desire to establish some permanent memorial to their parents, who were both managers of Swarthmore College, and stated that the} ' would contribute $50,000 for this purpose when the details had been agreed upon and satisfactorily covered, A Girls ' Dormitory being most needed at present, it was suggested to have plans prepared and start the building of one section. There was, however, more or less necessary delay in the selection of a site and the preparation of plans to be sulimitted to contractors, and when ready to ask for bids, it was found that labor and building material had so advanced that it would be unwise to start the work until conditions changed to a more normal basis. Therefore, the amount pledged has been turned over to the College, to be invested and added to bj- the interest which will accrue, imtil a building has been definitely de- termined upon and started, and in the meantime, $50,000 is in the possession of the Col- lege, and until otherwise used, will be designated as the " Worth Fund. " The Jubilee Fund . t the meeting of the Board of Managers in Tenth Month, 1915, the President of the Board was instructed to appoint a Committee to consider the question of increasing the endowment of the College and to report to the Board at its meeting the following Twelfth Month. The Committee is as follows: Emma C. Bancroft Howard Cooper Johnson Elsie Palmer Brown Joanna W. Lippincott Isaac H. Clothier ' ' ilson M. Powell Emma Mcllvain Cooper Marianna S. Rawson Robert M. Janney. Ex-Officio " Philip M. Sharpies Charles F. Jenkins Joseph Swain Robert H. Walker Caroline H. Worth Robert M. Janney. E-x 13 " TJic Men ' s Dormitories Have Been Coiiif Ieted ' ' Our Ahnuni Have Ihiilt Tivo Nc2 Alhleiie fields " — President Szvain 14 K llCYOW ®r 19 IS At the meeting of the Board of Managers in Twelfth Month, 1915, the Committee was instructed to formulate the plans for a campaign to increase the resources of the College, with full power to act. In the weeks previous to Commencement, the sum of $406,810 was subscribed. This sum includes $50,000 to be used to start the erection of a Girls ' Dormitory referred to above. The Committee decided to secure as large a sum as possible by Commencement of 1917. It is the plan that subscription to the Juliilee Fund shall be paid in three installments; at least one-third by October 1, 1917; a sec- ond one-third Ijy October 1. 1918; and the remainder by October 1, 1919, thus complet- ing the payment to the College before the Jubilee Anniversary in October, 1919. During the past four months something over $50,000 has been subscribed for en- dowment. The most notable subscription of late is a conditional gift of $125,000 from the General Education Board. This Board was founded by John D. Rockefeller and has for its purpose " the promotion of education within the United States of America. " It is gratifying that the General Education Board has. by this gift, put its seal of ap- proval on the educational policy of Swarthmore College. It is the only college in the East that received a gift of any kind at the recent meeting of the Board. In a state- ment made to them by the College the fact that Swarthmore was a Friends ' College was not only made clear, but emphasized, as the following extract will show: " Swarthmore is co-educational. The Friends who have founded the College have always believed in giving women equal opportunity with men. The history of the F ' riends makes an e.xceptional background for a co-educational college especially in the East. One who studies the life at Swarthmore is struck at once with the marked influence the traditions of Friends have on the College. One-half of the members of the Board are women, one-half of them have been women from its foundation. " Friends generally should find much encouragement that so important an educational foundation as the General Education Board shows by this conditional gift its approval of the College which has been built up with so much concern and sacrifice by the Friends. $220,000 must yet be subscribed to secure the conditional gift of $125,000 from the General Education Board. Alumni, ex-students, and students are now organizing to secure this sum. Up to the present time the endowment and plant has been given chiefly by non-graduates of the College, though there have been a few who have given most liberally from the Alumni and ex-students. There is now a very strong feeling that those who have been the chief benefactors of the College, namely the Alumni, ex-students, and students, should either give or secure this $220,000. As no student pays more than about one- half of the cost of his college education, this sum will represent only a small part of the obligation which those who have received the benefit of the college, or their Alma Mater. Edward Clarkson Wilson. ' 91, President of the Alumni .Association, will appoint a Committee of one man and one woman from each class to have general charge of the campaign among the Alumni and ex-students. He ha ' s already appointed Edward Temple, ' 91, Chairman of the Committee, and John Murray. ' 92. Vice Chairman. It is believed that everj ' living Alumnus, e.x-student and student should take two definite responsibilities in helping to secure this Jubilee Fund: First, to give what they can. and Second, to encourage others to do the same. So far as the matter has been dis- cussed with those who especially receive the benefits of the College, we have been very much encouraged by their spirit of co-operation and helpfulness. In conclusion, a recent editorial in the Phoenix is quoted: " Thus it is that Swarthmore is entering upon one of the most important campaigns in her history. The success or failure of this effort will determine the position she will in the future occupy among the educational institutions of this countrj-. The success of the undertaking will be determined by the degree of our willingness to make sacrifices for Alma Mater. The success of the undertaking will be measured by the number of us, — students, alumni, faculty, managers, friends, — who stand bj- our college and accept the challenge laid down by the Cliicago boy (who gave his first $1,000 to his Alma Mater). We cannot all give a thousand dollars, we can all give something; some of us can give more than a thousand dollars. " What will the ' answer be? When 1919 comes will our celebration be a real jubilee? Will we all be enrolled? Will we all have done our best to repay part of the debt that is ours? Will we accept the challenge? " Will you give a thousand dollars? " Alma Mater receives only to give again, even as she has given unto you.

It is a case of picking out representative doers from a list of almost two thousand names. The engineers of Swarthmore, perhaps, present the largest list of achievers. Dur- ing his professorship of twenty-six years, the late Arthur Bearsley trained a large number of men who are ranked high among the members of their profession. The list includes Fred J. Taylor, division chief of the Northern Pacific; James J. Rhoads, chief of the Schuylkill division of the Pennsylvania R. R.; Henry B. Seaman, one time chief engineer of the New York Public Service Commission and now engineer of the Wool- worth Corporation; Henry Turner, head of the big construction company which bears his name; Edward B. Temple, assistant chief engineer of the Pennsylvania Railroad system; Charles A. Bunting, electrical engineer of John Wanamaker ' s in Philadelphia; Aaron C. Pancoast, civil engineer of San Antonio, Texas; David B. Rushmore, chief engineer of the General Electric Company at Schenectady; John F. Murray, another assistant Pennsylvania Railroad chief. Professor George F. Blessing is now yearly turning out young engineers with the ciualities necessary to make good. In chemistrj ' the name of Walter Rittman stands out from all the rest because of his remarkable work in the line of oils and its refinement. Beside the name of Rittman there is a host of younger chemists trained by Swarthmore ' s renowned professors. Alle- man and Creighton, all remarkably successful in their work. In this list is the name of Frederick J. Blatz, managing chemist of the Blumenthal Leather Co., at Wilmington. In literature, Swarthmore, with two other colleges, lays claim to Richard Harding Davis, who was a student here in 1880 and 1881. Mrs. Helen R. Martin, from whose novel, " Barnabetta, " the successful dramatic piece, " Erstwhile Susan " was taken, is another literary Swarthmorean. John Edwin Wells, ' 96, Professor in Beloit College, Wisconsin, has written a notable book, " A Manual of the Writings in Middle English. " Government and the political profession claims such men as A. Mitchell Palmer, William C. Sproul, Charles R. Miller, ex-governor of Delaware; Congressman Hicks of New York, and Congressman Emmor Roberts, of the Fourth New Jersej ' district. The law has for its representatives such often-heard-of men as Francis Shunk Brown, attorney general of Pennsylvania; Howard Cooper Johnson, Walter T. Gilky- son and Judge William Butler, Jr., of the Chester County bench. The ministry has Alexander Griswold Cummins, rector of Christ Church, Pough- keepsie. Education has Francis G. Blair, Commissioner of Education in Illinois, and Thomas A. Jenkins, Professor of French Philology at the University of Chicago. Sur- gery has the famous Dr. Edward Martin. Finance and business has a list of names altogether too great to catalogue here. Such men as Morris L. Clothier, Robert M. Janney, Percival Parrish, Charles Hodge, George Brooke. T. Janney Brown, E. Pussy Passniore, Walter Lippincott, Rowland Comly, William E, Sweet, George .S. and William P. Worth, and Charles C. Miller are all men of note in the business world and all have given liack to .Mma Mater in return for what she has done for them. Swarthmore Field, the $50,000 gift of Morris L. Clothier to the college, and Alumni Field, being constructed by the rest of the alumni, the response to the call for a million dollar jubilee endowment fund, are proofs whicli the past Halcyon year offers for the loyalty and devotion of Swarthmore alumni. 26 William C.

THE mitrm lais c Ol)e Western Swartl)more (Tlub HE ' estern Swarthmore Club originated in December, 1903, when at an informal dinner about a dozen Swarthmoreans met and organ- ized the Chicago Swarthmore Club. The Chicago Club met for a yeav or so at irregular intervals, and, having elected Francis E. Brooniell secretary and treasurer, decided to widen its field and offer an annual free scholarship, consisting of board, room, and tuition. The club was then called the Western Swarthmore Club, and its membership increased to about sixty graduates in the West. In 191 5-16 the plan of the scholarship was changed and the clulj now offers annually two scholarships of $200 each, one to a woman and one to a man. The scholarship is open for competition to all high and preparatory school graduates west of the Allegheny Mountains, and the club has sent six students through the freshman 3 ' ear, and has been the means of inducing more than twice that number to choose Swarthmore. In this way all the principal high schools in the Middle West hear of Swarthmore everv year and the students carry her good name wherever they go. The Western Swarthmore Club has thus proved Swarthmore spirit not by words, but by deeds. The present officers .are: President, Professor T. A. Jenkins, ' 87; Treasurer, Francis E. Broomell, ' 93 ; Secretary, F. M. Simons, Jr., ' 09. All communications should be addressed to the secretar}-, Cni ' ersity of Chicago, Chicago, 111.

THE mitrm @? nm Ol)e Orenton Swartl more (Tlub ' -: HE Trenton Swarthmore Club is an organization of the Swarthmore ■ J men located in Trenton, N. J., formed primarily for the purpose of furnishing a scholarship in Swarthmore Colleg-e to the preparatory schools in Trenton and vicinity. The organization offers yearly a competitive honor scholarship of $200 for a period of two years. The Club awards the scholarship to a male appli- cant from the neighboring- territory, which includes seven of the most promi- nent preparatory schools within a radius of ten miles. The rer|uirements of application are based somewhat on those of the Rhodes Scholarship, and embrace scholarship, character, moral force, and physical de ' elopment. The purpose of the award is to secure and to induce men from that ' icinity to enter Swarthmore, the aim of the committee being to attract and develop all-around men, since no particular stress is given to any one line of activity. The officers are : Wm. M. Muschert, President ; J. Augustus Cadwal- lader, Vice President ; James E. Mitchell, Secretary-Treasurer. Other mem- bers of the Board are Owen Moon, Jr., Chairman Scholarship Committee; William K. Hoyt, Harvey Satterthwaite, Dr. A. W. Atkinson and J. Steph- ens Van Syckel. Club Scholars: 1910-1911, Howard Mahlon Buckman, 1914, Trenton High School; 1911-1912, Hyland Lorraine Hodgson, ex-1915, Trenton High School; 1912-1913, Edwin Augustus Tomlinson, 1916, George School; Stan- ley Avoy Pennock, ex-1917, Peddie Institute; 1914-1915, Frederick Stockham Donnelly, 1918, New Jersey State Model School, and Walter W.

Good fel- ■ ' ' J lowship and lo ' e of Alma Mater have been the keystone in the arch _ r of the Club ' s continued success. Since 1889 the Club has held, with- out interruption, an annual meeting and dinner, the Philadelphia Association being- the only one with such a record. The dinner this year was held on February 24 ' The first annual dinner, held on April 14, 1889, was attended by some sixty members. The attendance now averages about one hundred and seventy-five. The Club has never had any regular officers, but it is the practice to appoint each year a committee to take charge of the following year ' s meeting and dinner. During his life, Mr. Gerrit E. H. Weaver was the mo ' ing spirit and chairman of this committee. From the date of his death until 1914 Howard Cooper Johnson acted as chairman. For the past three years Charles C.

" 65 THE ymitrm ©r m CLARA ATLEE, K A © RIVERTON French Some one said she would be a big woman some day, and Clara is trying to li e up to the predic- tion. In spite of this, however, she is the acme of daintiness and precision. She possesses that now ahnost obsolete faculty of making herself intelligible to her fellow men without the use of slang. For Clara, you must know, comes from an old family, and in her youth the only cellar door she was permitted to slide down was her own cellar door. FRANCES LAURA BAIRD WILMINGTON Latin Frances is one of those people who thrive on work and responsibility. The more overworked she is, the more she enjoys life. She takes every- thing seriousl} ' — from aesthetic dancing to a course with Brooks : — and it " s a safe bet she ' ll pull an " A " in both. In fact, she gets e •ery- thing she goes after, whether what she happens to want at the moment is her hockey letter, or season basketball tickets for the girls. If you want tutoring done, an extra alto for the Glee Club, or information on an ' subject, known or unknown, go to Frances and you ' ll get it. w m w rTj- Bp-w HELEN ELIZABETH BALLEIN, K A WINFIELD, KAN. French When Helen heard the Halcyon staff was working on the Junior write-ups she expressed a desire that all reference to music be left out of hers. That makes a ])retty big gap — still there re- mains something to be said. " Beeny " is famous for saying exactly what she thinks about every- thing and everybody — and she usually has a good many thoughts. She is Ijlessed with an artistic lemi erament to a degree which makes her uncom- nionl)- likeajjle, and is just enough different from other people to be interesting. In fact, there ' s onl - one like hei ' , and she ' s it.

Man, that woman ' s a terror with her hands. 90 im mitrm ? i9is ELEANOR PALMER STABLER, K A © GEORGE SCHOOL Psychology and Education Eleanor is a systematic spirit. She has a sys- tematic mind but not a systematic heart. She will not acknowledge it, of course, but she does more for her fellow sufferers in a day than most of us do in a year. But have you noticed anything- dif- ferent about her lately? You might get her to explain the incident of the ladder separating George and Marion in " Tono-Bungay. " But why speak of love? at iia ' : DAVID JOHN STICKNEY, K 2 BUFFALO Chemistry D. John Stickney is not a bad sort of fellow. In fact, there are people around college who rath- er like " Jerry. " He ' s a most engagingly agree- able cuss, and has a knack of selling dance pro- grams that is positively uncanny in its effective- ness. He has an even temper, and while he does not make a hobby of rough-housing, neverthe- less, he can be seduced into a tumble if the right methods are applied.. He likes to kid people; rather dotes on this style of self-entertainment — and " Terrv " is a fair kidder at that. ROLAND PANCOAST STRATTON, T A o MOORESTOWN Political Science In a dozen or more towns scattered from North Carolina to Northern Pennsylvania you could find a trail of broken hearts. The reason, vou ask? ' ell, " Roly " and his moustache visited there last summer on Chautauqua. But when " Roly " re- turned to College his charms disappeared with his moustache and he had to content himself with such pastimes as football, soccer and lacrosse. 91 im ymiiY WILLIAM SIMPSON TAYLOR CHESTER Chemical Engineering King- of the post office is Taylor — Grand Omni- potent Monarch of the Cubby Holes. No Phoenix? Mail misplaced? Taylor is the culprit. But don ' t be too hard on him. His mistakes are merely those of commission. Omission is not Taylor ' s sin. At least, he did not omit to hang beautiful lace curtains on his quadrangle windows. Those pure-white curtains save ' harton from the utter hopelessness of cixilization. MARY ALBERTA THATCHER, A r SWARTHMORE Piiblic Speaking " Thatch " lived on Third ' est Junior year. You can ask anyone where she roomed. When she was appointed to keep order on the hall your ears could scarcely comprehend the transforma- tion. First she started to keep herself quiet and immediately the problem of order on the hall was settled. JOHN WILLIAM TRIMMER, T A o MECHANICSBURG Mafhentatics Ves, Jawn does take a few naps in I.dDey ' s class, and he doesn ' t often stun you with gatling gun speed in rejilying to your questions. But Jawn can sleep through most all of his mathe- matics classes and still come out better than a lot of others. And when he does answer you, he gen- erally gives you the benefit of his thought — and Jawn has a good stock of ' em. Remember that nld tale of the hare and the tortoise? 92 TME mitrm »? is is EMILY LOIS VAN LOON PHILADELPHIA A professor once remarked of Lois, " She ' s just like a pansy blossom. " But when you consider that this pansy is the only girl in her section at chemistry conference, that she is intimately acc|uainted Avith the internal workings of the whole cat family, and that she thrives on physics and all the " ologies, " 3 ' ou must acknowledge, " She ' s some pansy. " LOUISE WYNKOOP WAYGOOD GLEXSiDE English Louise takes to water like a duck, to learning like a shark, and to Y. ' . C. A. like a saint. We shall refrain from continuing the figure in regard to Chautauqua. AMien we asked her what sort of summer she had had, she replied with that all inclusi ' e radiance, " Perfectly lovely, thank you. " Shall we let that suffice? HELEN MARIE WESTFALL, n B MILWAUKEE Latin The thermometer registered fi e above. Be- furred and besweatered damsels made their shi - ering way about the draughty corridors. Down the west stairs strolled " AA ' esty, " wearing a white shirtwaist and skirt. " Oh, it isn ' t cold, " she ex- plained cheerfully. " You ought to come out to Milwaukee if }ou want cold weather. I am just longing for a good cool snap to make me think I am at home. " And humming blithely she passed on out of sight. 93 TME mitrm © GEORGE LLOYD WILSON, 2 K RIDLEY PARK Ecoiio]iiics And lo! from tl-e wilds of Ridley Park there came a big bad man. He was destined to tear the hearts of the co-eds to shreds and to revolutionize the ancient customs of the college. But the Hand of Fate ruled that his heart should go elsewhere, and that the college should not be radical!} ' altered. So this mighty man turned his wrath in other quarters, and the football world suffereth many Ijroken legs as a result of his prowess.

This year everything Avas conducted on a larger scale than had heretofore been attempted — the trips were longer, there were more of them, larger audiences attended, and more concerts were lield. Owing largely to the great aid rendered by the alumni at the concerts in Baltimore, Washington, and New York, the trips were successful beyond the rosiest expectations and Swarthmore received much enxiable reputation among people whose sons and daughters are desirable prospects for our stu- dent body. The Joint Concert with Haverford in the ball room of the Bellevue- Stratford was the biggest single thing in which the Swarthmore Clubs ever participated. From every standpoint it was a most gratif3 ' ing achievement and indications are that this function will be an annual affair. The home con- cert came two weeks later with an entirely new program, and the big home crowd applauded generously throughout. Professor Roy Bennett Pace appeared on the program as director after an absence of two years, and the much improved technique of the clubs is largely due to his efficient and untiring effort. Boyd Barnard rounded out his career of four years ' brilliant service to the clubs by acting as leader in this banner season. Paul Gemmill also completed his fourth year in the ca- pacitv of magician. This season ' s act has been the biggest feature of every program. Gemmill had for his assistant, Drew Pearson, whose " blank and receptive " mind was invaluable. Manager AA alter Timmis is the man re- sponsible for the high standard set for this year. By arranging the best sched- ule the clubs ever had and engineering the Bellevue-Stratford Concert, the biggest social event of the college year, he has won for himself the approbation of the entire student body.

(Huckle) Berry, former distinguished member of ' 18, whose natural inclination prompted him toward an uplift of the stage. Paul asked us to place our confidence in him — said he would not disappoint us for a real. live, original play that would delight all — and he made good. Twenty charming musical numbers, accompanied by a ten-piece orchestra the equal of many in Philadelphia theaters, was perhaps the most salient feature of this remarkable production. The songs were the result of a careful selection from a va- riety of light opera hits of past years, so ingeniously chosen and arranged that a sparkling, satisfying performance, full of surprises, was developed therefrom. The plot was largely original in order to allow leeway for the many touches of local color, the innovations, and snatches of humor with which Lan Chen abounded. A bro- ken coin in the possession of the Princess Chan, the complement of which belonged to her long lost sister who afterwards was discovered as the beautiful juggler girl, formed the basis of the action from which all sorts of situations arose. Ten stars led in the stage interpretations although practically every member of nineteen eighten took part in the task of putting on the big show. Bill Reilly handled the managerial end, Rawson, Heald, and Brown took care of the auxiliaries, and Bob Ogden acted as chairman of the e.xecutive committee. Cast of " L. n Chen ' 132 TME mitrm »r im Berry, as Ko-ko the Lord High Executioner, was one of the most uproariously funny figures that ever graced Collection Hall. His songs, " The Little List, " " Tit- willow, " and " Derry-down-derry, " were the last word in facial and bodily contortion, and his natural ability to scent humor in anything was amply provided for. The selections, " O Beautiful, " and " O Little Ball, " sung in the pure soprano of Helen Atkins, well-nigh entranced the audience by their beauty. Louise Lewis, as Princess Chan, with a clear voice, almost the exact counterpart of that of Miss Atkins, sang " On a Day, " " We Are United, " and " Stars Are Brightly Shining " with so natural and sympathetic a rendition that it was a delight to see and hear her. Katisha, the court lady with the single tooth, was played by Ruth Kistler in a thor- oughh appreciative style. Lloyd Wilson, as Pooh-bah, received no less than five en- cores to his solo, " I ' ve Gotta Hotter. " Freeman Barnes ' portrayal of Prince Oscar manifested rare abilitj ' both from a musical and a dramatic standpoint. His Majesty, the Emporer Chi, was delineated by the elongated Bew, whose good nature rippled serenely through it all. In the part of The Honorable Marcus Brutus Snap, Ralph Gawthrop displayed a barn-storming genius long suspected. Ewing Corson, as Ima Knut, and Ralph Heacock as the Chinee Soje lan, contributed largely to the comic aspect of the show, while the Ghost Song of Catherine Wright, disguised as Pitti Sing, was a dainty bit of music. Lan Chen, colossal in wealth of color and detail, stands out in relief with a pro- digiousness that will always be remembered by ' 18 as an achievement worth while. For three hours a packed house absorbed the fun and merriment that flowed like a con- tinuous fountain from the start, and when it was all over, the audience wondered if pro- fessional skill could have materially improved Lan Chen.

" came as an attractive climax to the oratorical musical, and r athletic display of Founders ' Day. Personifications of virtues and vices, characters from the old style of morality play, were seen acting under modern circum- stances and the result was intensely interesting. Practically all of the good and evil qualities on the moral calendar were seen in the play through which was woven a pretty love story centered about Happiness and her companions. Strength, Dreams, Good Times, False Hope, Career, Celebrity, and Discouragement. In popularity of its theme, individual interpretation, and general ef- fectiveness, Happiness stood out a positive compliment to the cast and to the directive talent of Elizabeth B. Oliver. The plot of the play was quite simple and evident. Helen Coles, in the title role, leaves a country home to study music in the city. She disdains the aid of Strength, and in the company of Dreams and Money, reaches the city where she is charmed by Good Time, Career, Celebrity, and False Hope. Her companion. Money, failing her, she is deserted by these, but is rescued by Strength, her lover. For a time she leans on Strength, but is saved from yielding to him by Pride. In a highly dramatic scene on the Fields of Hunger, Happiness finally calls upon him to save her from Despair, Temptation, Passion, Dishonesty. Hunger, Defeat, and Death. The final scene brings us to the home of Happiness where Friendliness, aided by Strength, puts Gossip and Skin Flint to rout. Later Happiness bids good-bye to Dreams and promises to be the wife of Strength.

To the Seniors it was the last " loaf " prior to launching their boats into the tur- bulent stream of life ; to the under-classmen it was an opportunity to enjoy a few (lavs of freedom after the college restrictions, which are oljserved only as an example to the Freshmen, w ere remo •ed. As the Alumni wanted to hold their reunions on Saturday, Prexy and Mrs. Swain entertained the Seniors at luncheon on Thursday in the Library. The Class Day exercises were held on Friday in the amphitheatre. President Orchard reviewed briefly the contril utions made 1)) ' the class of ' i6 to the e -erlasting history of the College. He was followed immediately by " Jack " Riffert, who presented ]M ' izes to those who had so generously de -oted their services to Alma Mater. The Seniors presented " The Merry Wives of Windsor " in a manner tliat would have made old William himself envious. The leading liglits were " Jim " Melick, Fliza Ulrich and Evelyn Miller, not to mention many lesser stars of the " al! star " production. Later in the day old Whittier Field passed into history, with one more victory added to its illus- trious record, when Rutgers met a 4-2 defeat. On Sunday, Ernest Percy Bicknell gave the Baccalaureate address. John Orchard planted the class ivy and Hugh Denworth talked while it forgot its associations with Mount Vernon and took root alongside the lil rary. A last opportunity was gi -en the Seniors to make up " over cuts " in Collection. Next day Governor Ralston, of Lidiana, gave the Commencement ad- dress. His address was closely rivaled upon the evening of the same day by J. " Pork " Murch, who presided at the Senior banquet at the Strath Haven. When the curtain fell at the close of the dance the class of 1916 stepped out upon the liroad -eran(la of life with an earl)- morning start into its mysteries. 1S9 TME mitr (Takadar for (Tommencement " ecK 1916 Thursday, June Eighth . . _ .

Roper -» HILE the result of the Haver- 1 1 1 " " - game was disappointing in VJL the extreme, I feel that the record of the football team of 1916 can be looked back on with considerable satisfaction. Football teams are de -eloped to win games, but it is equally important after a game is finished to take victory or defeat in the proper spirit. 1 was greatly impressed with the manly manner in which the team and the undergraduates took the disap- pointment of the final game. The schedule was a hard one, especially hard owing to the fact that so many games were played out of town. The play of the team in the Pennsyl- vania game was particularly gratifying. Ever ' member of the team ]ilayed his best game and with a determination and fight that could not be denied. While Pennsylvania out-rushed us they could Mil Klll ' EK C.APTAIX E.NDICOTT Capt.-Elect Cornog 197 TME ymitrm Pat McGovern, ' 17 not score, owing to the fact that the Swarth- more defense ahva} ' s stiffened up in its own territory. It was one of the best defensive ex- hibitions I ha ' e seen for a long time. The best offense shown I5}- tlie team all year was gi ' en in the second half of the Dickinson game when two touchdowns were scored in quick succes- sion bv rushing the ball. It would lie imjiossible and imfair to pick out any member or members of the team for special commendation. The entire sciuad worked hard and conscientiously all fall. Cap- tain Endicott was an insi)iring and capable leader and developed surprisingly during the season as a punter.

The first, ap]5earing second on our schedule, represented the high water mark of a bril- liant eleven: the second, the final game, saw only the embers of a once great team. Looking backward upon a season that showed nothing but the acme of promise until its last da) ' s when most of our hopes were blasted, there is some- thing both intensely satisfying and _ ' et bitterly distasteful. Early in October, the team composed mostly of veterans, had been rounded into a combination that looked mighty good to Coach Roper. It was hard- working, ambitious, and villing to fight every minute. The line was heavy and experienced, the backfield fast and plucky, with team work and signal play of a high or- der. But it was untried, and the opening con- test with Lafayette on a strange land would tell the tale. In one of the hardest fought battles ever decided on March Field, in the face of a melting- sun that caked the ground and caused clouds of dust to envelop the con- testants, without a breath of air stirring, the Garnet jerseys outgamed their powerful oppo- nents and came ' through with a lo to 6 win. Old Penn, next on the schedule, carefully considered how best to beat S ' arthmore the following Saturday on Franklin Field, but she • " missed her guess. Endicott ' s team would not Alva Kush.

Time and again the Ijig Red and Blue war- riors charged the lighter Garnet players and ripped Swarthmore " s line for substantial gains. But always in the shadow of her own goalposts, Swarthmore was invincible. Penn hammered awa} ' many times when her opponents had been forced within the ten-yard line, but each time the little Quakers hurled back the invaders and recovered the ball. Swarthmore earned a touchdown in the second period when Alva Bush, at the height of his career, pulled down a forward pass and tore twenty }-ards, through a field infested with Penn tacklers, for the only score of the game. Penn, desperate in the waning minutes, strove with super- liuman efforts to turn the tide, but to no avail, and Swarthmore was accorded the proud distinction of having humbled mig ' hty Pennsylvania. Every man of the Garnet eleven fought with the keen zest of a long an- ticipated struggle. Swarthmore knew she had to face a mighty team and entered the contest resolved if necessary to die just as hard as it is in the power of eleven resolute men to die, who are dedicated to a great and noble work. The big Quaker team, finding itself met on even terms by an unflinch- ing array of grit, representing what to them seemed an inferior ag ' gregation, grew nervous, and as the game progressed with the Swarthmore ele ' en ever growing stronger, was unable to cross the goal, and finally succumbed, 6 to o. At that time Ha -erford seemed very small and far away. The very momentum of Roper ' s fighting ele ' en carried it along for four more victories. P ' ranklin and iNlarshall was disposed of in the third game by Bill Provost, ' 17 The Baltimore Qu. rtette 201 TME mitrm ®p i - r -- Fred Donnelly, ' 18 Harold Smith, ' 17 Harry Olin, ' 18 the same score, 6 to o. Ursinus, with a team heralded as great, went down on Founders ' Day before the onslaught of the Swarthmore steamroller, 13 to 3. Hopkins was the next to fall, 14 to 6, and a week later Columbia was pil- laged, 18 to o. Then followed the memorable duel with the formidable Dick- inson ele -en, recognized by Garnet enthusiasts as the last big test of the year. The loss of Donnelly in the Ursinus game now began to be felt. Bush had been ill for several weeks, and Clarke, the acting center, was forced to retire from the game. For the first time in the entire season, Swarthmore ' s oppo- nents took the lead, but the Garnet by a splendid offensive in the fourth ses- sion regained the advantage. The Carlisle team needed a touchdown to tie the count and Welch, the sensational Indian halfback, was sent into the breach. He had three minutes to pla} ' , but he made good and Swarthmore was forced to acknowledge an e en l reak after si.x straight ' ictories. a4i i m m ' 4? • • 9 Hi f £ m ' flH|H| I AVKRI ' IIKII CiAME 202 TME M )ICY@W ®r 1911 I. ijj Sfld V ii-fi!«« ' - - " v- VE ' ■ s: Haverford Game With only a few cla} ' s remaining- before the last and most vital game of all, that h ' dra of the gridiron, the injury jinx, ravaged and desolated the once powerful Swarthmore machine until it hardly resembled its former self. jNIc- Govern, star of four seasons, and Michael, most oromising of the freshmen regulars, were completely incapacitated just when their services were most needed. Gloom per aded the Swarthmore camp, but e ' en after the shock of this last straw, followers of the Swarthmore eleven could not reconcile them- selves to anything- but a victory over their old rivals. Haverford, with a team carefully nursed b} ' Mike Bennett, and developed with a view toward capturing the Swarthmore game above all else, took the Garnet eleven almost by surprise. With a team work and intricacy of plav that was bewildering, she manag-ed to sweep down the field for a touchdown in the second cjuarter. In the fourth she got near enough to her goal for Crosman to send a beautiful drop kick between the uprights. Then came John Johnson. ' 19 Carl Michael, ' 20 203 Frank Stow, ' 10 H, i:iiK()iiii (i.

It is the old stor)- of a pOAverful machine disintegrated Ijy the hand of fate on the eve of a momentous event. Swarthmore, however, is not letting her thoughts dwell on the unpleasant aspects of the 1916 season. The Roper- Endicott combination was one of the few great Garnet elevens and its record will always be a source of intense pride to every Swarthmorean. True, it lost a much desired contest, but human ingenuity and pluck could not avert the incidents which led to the final disappointment. The glorious victor} over Penn, coupled with its complement of five clean wins from other strong- insti- tutions, and the well earned tie with the fighting Dickinson team, all serve to alleviate the twinge of bitterness which marked the close of the schedule. Swarthmore is very proud of her team and of the men who made it. William Roper and Roy Mercer are two of the best coaches in the country and Swarth- more was exceptionally fortunate in being favored with the services of both men at the same time. This year Roper has heeded the call of Princeton, his Bob Maxwell Lloyd Wilson, ' 18 TME mitrm ®? isis After the Penn Game Alma ] later, and Mercer will direct the destinies of the team. Ally Cornog will captain the ele ' en in his fourth year of varsity foothall, and with only five men lost through graduation, namely, ex-Captain Endicott, ] IcGo ' ern, Clarke, Provost, and Smith, the 191 7 team should follow in the footsteps of its illustrious predecessor.

LcRoy Mercer ® TTH a majority of last fall ' s football squad still under- graduates in college and with the probable but uncertain prospect that four or fi e or more of next year ' s freshman class will be football players, it would seem reasona]:)le to predict a real Swarthraore eleven for 19 17. The loss of such men as ex-Captain Endicott and McGovern from the tackle positions. Smith from end. and Bush from the backfield will be keenly felt. They have given their best to Swarthmore and contributed to many hard-fought victories, and in return have reaped the rewards of the service. We wish them well in other lines of en- deavor and trust that their experiences on the football field will add zest and determination to their work. We have men who by playing on the scrub team have grasped enough of football ability to take up the work of those lost this year. t depend on these men to rise to the occasion and be prepared for ' varsity dut} ' with Captain Cornog. Surely under ordi- nary circumstances we should have a nucleus upon which to build and mould a team. But owing to unforseen con- ditions such predictions mean little at this unsettled time with the football season many months away. Let us place prospects upon a firmer basis of which individuals are strong factors. Let us look upon our men as parts of a whole where the individual 207 Roy Mercek TME M llCY A! m 1918 i Ruff loses his identit}- in the team and where the team loses its identity in the college. It is not Cornog ' s toe, Johnson ' s decision, Donnelly ' s d efense, Stow ' s charge, Ridpath ' s grit, Baker ' s plunge, Gillespie ' s tackle, [Michael ' s interference, Wilson ' s weight, or Olin ' s de- termination that will win games or make the football team. It is the mould of these and many other sterling (jualities that make the team, and the team is not eleven men but the whole college. Then let Swarthmore ' s impelling force with the football squad as her repre- sentative be the prospect for 1917. After all, that somewhat indefinaljle something, " College Spirit, " which has to do with lo)-alty anrl love, that something which forces victor}- from defeat, that something which stirs the blood and c]uickens the pulse of the freshman and remains a part of him as long as life lasts, must be the incenti ' e for voluntary efficient service when the call for service comes.

Coach ' HEX an athletic team has lost seven out of ele en games it would ordinarily seem ©.„.„.,„.,..„.,...,. successful season. The 191 7 basketball team lost seven out of eleven, yet it would be absurd to class the team among the " unsuccessfuls. " Probably never in the history of collegiate basketball have the teams throughout the country been so uniformly strong or so evenly matched. Pittsburgh, Lehigh, Lafayette, New York L ' niversity, Penn State, and the Navy had teams that ranked with the strongest that e " er represented these institutions. Pitts- burgh defeated State, Lehigh, and Lafayette ; Swarthmore defeated Pittsburgh ; and yet Lehigh, State, and Lafayette were all aljle to defeat the Quaker team. Lehigh beat Swarthmore by one point in an extra period, Lafayette took the long end of the score by three, while State won by an ele " en point margin Captain Sproul If all the teams in the east Capt.-Elect Donnelly were rated, Swarthmore would stand well up in the first ten. Moreover, there would be hardh eight points difference between the strongest and the weakest teams. These facts, perhaps, give some idea of the class in which Swarthmore traveled dur- ing the season just closed. At times Captain Sproul ' s team played as good basketball as has ever been seen in the Hall G mi- nasium, but its weakness lay in its inabilitv to plav at top form throug " hout the whole game. The season was not all discouragements. Prob- ably the most encouraging aspect of the vear ' s work lay in the rapid de ' elopment of the second-string- men. In every case of need the substitute demon- strated his worth by proving equal to the occasion. The Swarthmore team of 1918 will be forced to start the season minus three strong ' , seasoned, 213 THE M ICY§M willing " players, Captain Sproul, Spackman, and Alderfer. Six ' varsit} ' men will remain as a nucleus namely, Donnelly, Boughton, Stow, Yoder.

Lang, Captain igij ' T first g-lance the record of the 19 16 lacrosse team seems ahnost a tragedy. Out of the nine games played only two were won. one was tied, and the other six were lost, although all by small scores. The team was, however, much lietter than the results would indicate. After the first g " ame with Cornell, which was lost, primarily because of the lack of practice, it settled down and played hard, fighting ' lacrosse. Har ' ard and Swarthmore battled to a tie, which carried the g ' ame through three extra periods. Both g ' ames with Pennsylvania took extra time to decide the win- ner, and the Navy game went to two extra periods before it was won. Hop- kins was given the hardest fight of the year, while the Lehigh game was un- decided until the last few minutes of play. Numerous injuries suffered by the regular men, together with lack of weight, combined to handicap the team to a considerable extent throughout the season. Every game was an uphill fig ' ht with the odds usualty favoring the opposing side. Captain iXIurch, Ogden, and Baker developed a splendid offense, while Jackson, Alunce and Dennis offered stubborn resistance to the scoring machine of their opponents. C- PT.

Scbring Riffcrt, Captain OLD AJarcli went out like a lion and spilled the beans for gettino- early dope on one of tlie best basel3all teams Swarthmore ever had. The southern tumble never even shook the " uneys " out of the trunks and after almost a week of down- pour in Washington, the pill-chasers came back to their own back yard, a little dampened, but with more of the old fight than ever. This pep lasted through the schedule and the occasional small end of the score only sharpened cleats for the good old come-back, when we took the measure of the regular guys from some of the big burgs. When Coach Bettger issued the first bugde for the awkward squad, he found the best bunch of diamond dusters ever assembled under the Quaker flag waiting to get in the harness. The pitching mound held hurlers like Ogden, E. Cornog, and Corse. On the receiving end we had Carris and Harry. Above all an air-tight infield composed of Sproul, A. Cornog, White, and Boughton, made it hard to see the outfield because of the brick wall effect. Back of all this the veteran outfield of Shoemaker, Brown, and Captain Rifl:ert speared everything that leaped through to the weeds. Old " Jawn " worked like a vet all season and when some lucky busher did manage to clout one of his benders, the relief scjuad was back of him all the time gi ' ing ' the grass a chance to grow between the sacks. Such is the history en bloc of a stellar season made pos- sible by good coaching, good Ijall pla} ' ers, and the best- ever brand of team spirit. While the record of the season tells the story we might hit a few of the high spots. Old Penn, who is our favorite door- mat, took the count twice in three well-played games. The soldiers found the " pacifs " armed with a knockout for the first time in sev- eral years. The Cornell gang was glad to get out from under an 8 to 4 score, while our old friends from Ann Arbor left us the sphere on which to paint another ' ictory for the trophy case. The season ended in a grandstand finish on Alumni Day when the Rutgers aggregation went back to the red-shale district Cdach Bettger with nothing but their suits. 221 Capt.-Eli I I White TME mitvm ®r 1918 However, this is all o er and we ha e next season to make history repeat itself and then some. The team is intact with the exception of the outfield who played four }-ears together on old W ' hittier.

Capt.-Elect Bonner -- HE 1916 track schedule, arranged b_y Man- ■ ] ager Bill Pohlig, showed a total of eight meets, dual and intercollegiate, the largest number that has ever been billed for a Swarthmore track team. This fact called for early and con- sistent training- on the part of every member of the squad and Coach Mercer lost no time in getting his candidates in shape for competition. A dual meet with Hopkins, just a week prior to the Penn Re- lays, enabled the Swarthmore team to test its abil- ity under fire before the big event of the following- Saturday. The Relays saw Bonner, Maule, Mc- Neal, and Baker win second place in race No. 33 after a hard fight with Pitt, the winner. Rutgers ] " )ro ' ed a little too strong for us a week later and the New Brunswick athletes captured the meet by two points. The Middle States Champion- ships at New York University resulted in Swarth- more securing fourth place largely through the in- dividual efforts of her captain. Gyp Gowdy, who won both the high and the low hurdles. Baker, one of the freshman stars, was good for second place in the half-mile run. Olin and Mason secured third places in the pole vault a nd low hurdles, respectiveh ' , while Bonner annexed a fourth in the half-mile. New York University ' s fast dash and middle distance runners forced Swarthmore into the short end of another close meet the following week b} the score, 59 to 53. Then came the Haverford clash in which Swarthmore was victorious for the second successive year. The most important event in connec- tion with this meet was the shattering of the fresh- man half-mile record by Gene Baker, who covered the distance in the fast time of 2 minutes 2 2-5 sec- onds. Lafavette, with one of the strongest teams she has had in years, did not ha -e much difficulty in de- feating the Garnet on the next Saturday. In the Phoenix Cup Sports, which followed, Hoot, the fresh- man weight star, annihilated the old discus record b) ' ten feet, when he hurled the missile 119 feet 11 inches. Captain Gowdy was sent to the Intercollegi ate games at Harvard, on Mav 27, where he succeeded in quali- fving for tlie finals in the 120-yard high hurdles though he did not place. 225 Harrv OliNj ' 18 TME mitrm ®r i Result of tl)e Scl)e6ule s. 45 1-3 Opp. 58 2-3 58 April 22 — Johns Hopkins at Baltimore April 29 — Penn Relays at Philadelphia First — University of Pittsburgh Second — Swarthmore Third— Penn State May 6 — Rutgers at Swarthmore 54 May 13 — Middle States Intercollegiate at New York First — New York University 25 Second — Lafayette 24 Third— Rutgers 19 Fourth — Swarthmore 18 1-4 May 17 — New York Uni. at Swarthmore 53 May 20— Haverford at Haverford 55 1-2 May 24 — Lafayette at Swarthmore 44 May 27 — Intercollegiate A.

(Gyp) Gowdy. Though not a Gieg or an Eberle in all around ability, G} ' p ne -ertheless holds his own among- the preatest through the brilliancy of his work on the cinder-path. At present he holds no less than three freshman track records, namely, the broad jump and both hurdles, a distinction which no other Swarthmore athlete can claim. In addition he holds the colleg-e record in the In ' oad jump and is tied with Eberle for the low hurdle mark. Eberle. the possessor of two col- leg " e records and the tie with Gowdy, is the only man to outclass Gyp in this respect. Gowdy ' s best work was done as an under- classman. Fresh from Exeter, where he must have been the entire team, Gyp came to Swarth- more and, together with Charlie Blackwell, pro- ceeded to revolutionize track on Whittier Field. Blackwell was king in the sprints, but Gyp, more -ersatile, was called upon to make good in four events. At the Lehigh meet, in his freshman year. Gyp won twenty points for his Alma Mater by capturing the high and low hurdles, the broad jump, and the pole vault. Dur- ing his four years of ' varsity competition he has never lost a hurdle race in a dual meet, though he was always entered in both. The college broad jump record of 22 feet 5 3-5 inches, which he holds, was made in his freshman year. In 19 13 he was a member of the relay team which competed at the Penn Relays. At Exeter, one of his favorite events was the high jump, in which he established a record of 5 feet 7 inches. Since he had all he could handle with his other events, the coaches at Swarthmore never allowed him to enter the high jump while here. Gyp ' s total of points scored for the Gar- net is 192, of which 55 were made in his freshman year. 21 in his sophomore year, 61 in his junior year, and 55 in his senior year. The small total for his second year was due to an injury received in mid-season. The present track team contains men who show much promise, but they have ,a long road to travel before the}- can touch the record set by Gowdy. Captain Gowdy TME M llCy0A!

In 191 7, swimming grew strong, cast aside its swaddling clothes, and threw them at opponents with a well-aimed force and •igor more becoming- a man than an infant. In 191 7, it not only celebrated the first victorious swimming meet in Swarthmore his- tory, but went ahead and walloped every collegiate con- testant, losing only to the two most powerful scholastic teams in the east. On March 8, Swarthmore probably felt in better spirits than it has since the football and track victories over Haverford last vear. The cause of the self-satis- fied sensation was a 41 to 12 victory over the Haverford tankmen. Our Main Line rivals were unmercifully swamped and sent home shivering and almost drowned. They failed to win a single event. The victory over Johns Hopkins, on Februarv 10, was a new sensation for Swarthmore. It was the first time the swimming team had ever won. The next cause for celebration occurred after the Rutgers meet on February 16, which gave Swarthmore the heavy end of a 32 to 27 score. At Mercersburg, on February 23, the swimming team met its first stumbling block. Mercersburg Academy won the relay and the meet by the score, 29 to 24. On March 16, the record-beating Princeton Freshmen handed the Garnet squadron their final and worst ducking. Dowdell was the only man who could win an event and add five points to Swarthmore ' s side of a T,y to 14 score. His plunge was 70 feet, which bettered his old record by 2 feet. The fast-flying freshmen swam the relay in one minute, forty-one and two-fifths seconds, setting a new intercollegiate record for the world. Francis Jenkins and Gilbert Tomlinson were two big factors in the rise of swimming at Swarthmore. Jenkins, a freshman from Chicago University High, established new records in the fifty and hundred yard dashes, while " Tommy, " the Middle Atlantic long distance racer, hung up a new mark in the two hundred. Their swimming was responsible for the wins in the relay races, and they could always be depended upon to hand in first places in their individual e ' ents. The one man most responsible for Swarthmore ' s meteoric rise in the swim- ming world is Marc Dowdell. As captain, manager, and heaviest point win- ner, he has nursed the infant sport through two trying years, and in the third 231 TME ymitrm @r has sten the object of his work liloom gloriously. Dowdell induced Raymond Uhl. the school bov champion, to act as amateur coach ; he forced the recogni- tion of swimming through the Athletic Association ; he carried the financial luirden : and he established an interscholastic swimming meet as an annual e ' ent of the college -ear. !5 esuU of t )(i.

The contest this year was marked with more than ordinary spirit on both sides, and when Cleaver, of the yearlings, scored the touchdown which spelled de- feat for the second year men, there was considerable rejoicing in the Freshman camp.

My mother is a member of the household committee. My father is a memljer of the Board of Managers. My sister is coming next year, and the rest of the family will be along later. My aunt was one of the first members of Alpha Beta Chapter. I feel that m} ' social standing is secure and my resources adequate. Al- together my family has contributed generously to the endowment fund. So much for my pedigree. As for my studies, I ne er let them interfere with my college education. All of my members are unani- mously elected to Somerville before the end of their Senior year, and one of our members made Phi Beta Kappa. I should like to announce to sub-freshmen that if they desire to join my chapter, they can do no better than to look up their family tree and dis- cover some relationship to my distinguished ancestr} ' . If I don ' t ask you right away, don ' t be discouraged, but just remember that all things come to her who waits. One of our members is Dean, 3 ' ou know, and we are sure we just about manage the college. The following " letter was written by a member of the Penn- sylvania Alpha Chapter of the Pi Beta Phi Fraternity to a western sister: " Dear Believer in the Cause: I know ' ou will take what I have to say to you in the Christian spirit in which it is sent. We are all working for the same thing — a full dance program and the management of the Y. W. C. A. Dear sister, let us get together and do the thing up brown. Most of the heathen here are willing to hear the gospel, and my prayer to you is that as sorry as I am to see you turn in tlie wrong paths, 1 must confess myself that I have often sat on the couch, have often spent the week ends away in the distant resorts, have dusted the alcoves, have taken Modern Philanthropy, and indeed e en used strategy ' and the tele- phones in my efforts to bring to my sisters the hajjpy romances that I ba ' e ex- perienced. These are the joys of education. O you westerners, profit bv the experience of those who are in the game. If you find it hard to reconcile our two cliief aims, look again into the gospels. They explain everything. " 256 mitrm » mm Never since I ' ve been a Kappa has tliere been so much excitement in camp. You know we have always been very careful of wliat we do. A ' e always wanted to be as inter- ested in college sports, dances, Student Government and other activities as is deemed proper. We did not want to do too much; yet we felt we must do something. Of course, we always considered the opinions of Eddie White and Billy Provost very reliable, but somehow this year they picked out more than we can handle. The rest of us are working, worrying, and arguing about the best method of keeping up with the pace they set. Naturally, the record of our nine- teen sixteen class, even though there is still one single, should be enough to attract freshmen. We feel that although we have been matri- monially successful, we need now to turn our efforts toward the subjects of interest to everv one else. I am a Delta Gamma. I live in the village ; am not a Senior, — verv ambi- tious. I would rather see one of my fraternity sisters President of Student Government than have the whole chap- ter in " ited to a Phi Psi dinner dance. I make it a point to appear democratic, Aith the result that my real superiority over non-fraternity girls is sometimes lost sight of. Automobiles, relief from college meals by Hsits to my home in the village, public speaking exhibitions, and references to fraternity sisters who hold offices and posts of honor, con- stitute my main bid for freshmen. I am acutely conscious of my extreme youth, and ha ■e not yet entirely forgotten my painful experience in attempt- ing to anchor here. My stock in trade is offices and honors ; my motto, " It pays to advertise. " 257 TME mitrm @r isia Ol)e Jf ' ratermt ! anual brl69e6 or t5l)e ! itter Orutl) " Oh, Gladys Those Phi Psi ' s are such nice boys — so polite and gentlemanly. Oh, I could just fall in love with a dozen of them. And dance! Why, Gladys, dear, you have no idea. They know all the latest things. It ' s just too cute the way they smile and bow. And they do say such nice things. I just love it don ' t you? The other ' fra- ternity boys just never could learn. " The present war will probably relieve the Kappa Sigma Athletic Club of the neces- sitv of turning out a football team this year. Inasmuch as Delta Upsilon is non-secret, why not take time out some Wednesday night and pass upon it? An incentive to this duty would be that we might learn the secret of the one " C " Phil Hunt made at mid-years. Phi Sigma Kappa is a state of mind. You simply put a pin on and Brother Brooke on the Philadelphia papers will do the rest for you. He can make anything out of you, from a mob-quieter to a college president. T A O thought it would change its name to the " Phoenix Club " this year, but re- frained from doing so because it was afraid of complications in getting a Phi Delta Theta charter. Phi Psi was founded during a typhoid epidemic at Jefferson College. It is a splen- did example of what may result from, delirium. The Swarthmore chapter is in danger of losing its charter because Elliott chews tobacco and refuses to wear pumps to breakfast. " Myrtle, child, don ' t cry any more. I ' m su re that boy didn ' t mean to spill hot soup in your hair. And he probably never meant to jab your eye with that horrid fork. But, Myrtle, if you really wish to leave the Kappa Sigma table I will find room for you somewhere else. " The D U ' s are going to do everythnig Commencement Week except hand out the diplomas. Xow that Ed Tomlinson is an alumnus of a year, he might be persuaded to come back and do this little jolj for Prexy. The P S K ' s have a number of prominent alumni. Fats Wilson is another big man. Judging from the Freshmen they pulled last fall, all this strength is unnecessary. 258 mitrm w !9i! T A O always speaks with reverence of Brother Shrode, who helps the Dean run the College. Among other prominent alumni are Walt Rittman. who discovered kero- sene, and Johnny Stevens who has a job laughing at English army bullets. Under no circumstances should the crowd over the hardware store be permitted at large. Their activitj ' must be confined to baseball diamonds, teas, and the Bellevue ballrooms. After the withering disappointment over the inability of Harold Smith to make good as a pianist, the Kappa Sig ' s hesitated a long time before chancing a bid for John Johnson. That is why they favor a postponed pledge day so strongly. Ally Cornog ' s artistic taste will out. During the first part of Spring vacation the D U ' s held a province convention at Swarthmore and Ally, despite the opposition of the entire chapter insisted on having flowers on the college dining room tables. Now we know the secret of the P S K ' s scholastic strength: it is music. Bert Brown supplied it, and then Gilchrist, but since Gilly left college they have been obliged to buy a victrola. The Kappa Sig ' s might do well to buy a steam piano. T A O is growing by leaps and bounds, but every time Hollingshead runs for the 6:50, it scares them out of a year ' s expansion. This is a picture of the Bob Willets Club which Bob founded soon after his initia- tion into Phi Psi. Bob is the millionaire seated in the big chair. The club speaks for itself. 259 THE ymitrm m ' ]Q)®3lte i€ctmm GJ CI A d JiU ® Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my opinion — of conrse, you don ' t care any- tliing about my opinion — but it is m} ' opinion that a mild antiseptic used morn- ine and night on the nose and throat will prove more efficacious in preserv- ing the traditions and sentiment which surround the ivys clinging to old Par- rish than all the rag-time poetr}- of the Dark Ages.

It is necessary, in order to get at the bottom of things that all local trains stop at Media. For that purpose Jerry Taylor wrote our Alma .Mater — to instill the purest patriotic principles — not of your candidate or of my candidate, but of our president into your minds. The annua!

But I have sufficient faith in a number of them to send them copies of the Halcyon in order to show them what a change has come into my life. I am, therefore, ordering- sixty T-Ialcyons. Will you see that they are delivered to me as soon as possible? Very truly yours, WILLIAM R. PROVOST On the cover of this Halcyon you have seen a jjicture of the Halc ' on bird.
