PROFESSOR sr-ENCER TROTTER The Department of Biology at Swarthmore meets some of the vital prob- lems in present day conservation. (i) The climb upward is of great value in conserving air for purely respiratory, purposes. (2) The odor of the laboratory, which has become a permanent, and probably the most conspicuous part of its equipment, may possibly prove of great use in the acquirement of a resistance to poisonous gas. (3) The low water pressure and the difficulty experienced by soap in finding its way to so high a level, is of decided advantage in conserving the natural oil of the skin, and in keeping the hands more or less protected by a layer of plain dirt. This may prove of great advantage in future work at front, where both water and soap are likely to be scarce. (4) Work in this department has long been known as a first class " Camouflage " in the prosecution of coeducational matters. It is needless to elaborate on this point. In the absence of Professor David Miller, of Darkest Africa, who is con- ducting a series of experiments at Pig Point on the explosions produced by large words, the work of the department is under the immediate direction of Dr. Trotter and Dr. Palmer.

I ' KOFESSnH IJELLEKT ALLEMAN The Department of Chemistry has for some years held a very enviable po- sition at Swarthmore. It has always its full quota of students and the demand for its graduates is always greater than the supply. Dr. Alleman has developed the department to such an extent that a grad- uate is practically certain of success. Large industrial corporations in the vicinity often write to the department asking for a man for a certain position and leaving the choice to the discretion of Dr. Alleman. Upperclassmen are often offered enticing positions to leave college before graduation. One course, general inorganic chemistry, is very popular and at the begin- ning of every year there are several students who apply " too late. " The majors in this department are fortunate in that they are continually in contact with men who know their subject and are able to explain to stu- dents questions which arise in laboratory work.

Robinson, A.B., A.M., Assistant in Economics. Howard Cooper Johnson, B.L., LL.B., Lec- turer in Laic. Xo one has better described Political Economy, or Economics as the science has come to be called, than the late Alfred Marshall of England. I would like to think that the courses offered in the Department of Economics at Swarthmore are in keeping with his high conception of the science which he defines in the following paragraph, quoted from his Principles of Economics : " Thus it (Economics) is on the one side a study of wealth, and on the other, and more important side, a part of the study of man. For man ' s char- acter has been moulded by his every-day work, and the material resources which he thereby procures, more than by any other influence unless it be that of his religious ideals; and the two great forming agencies of the world ' s history have been the religious and the economic. Here and there the ardour of the military or the artistic spirit has been for awhile predominant: but re- ligious and economic influences have nowhere been displaced from the front rank even for a time : and they have nearly always been more important than all the others put together. Religious motives are more intense than economic ; but their direct action seldom extends over so large a part of life. For the business by which a person earns a livelihood generally fills his thoughts dur- ing by far the greater part of those hours in which his mind is at its best ; during them his character is being formed by the way in which he uses his faculties in his work, by the thoughts and the feelings which it suggests, and by his relation to his associates in work, his employers, or his employees.

Mann, of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, sent a questionnaire to practicing engineers throughout the United States, asking them to state what, in their judgment, were the qualities that made for successful engineering. They were further requested to attach to each of these qualities a numerical value to indicate its relative importance. The result of 5,441 votes rated character, integrity, responsibility, re- sourcefulness and initiative 24% ; judgment, common sense, scientific attitude, perspective 19.5%; efficiency, thoroughness, accuracy, industry 16.5%; knowledge of the fundamentals of engineering science i$ r r ; technique of practice and of business io c c. The possibility of placing numerical values on such elusive qualities as those enumerated may be questioned, but the investigation is valuable in call- ing attention to the many things, other than technical knowledge and skill, that the college must strive to give the young engineer if he is to attain a high order of success in his profession. Technical knowledge and skill he of course must have in order to place himself vocationally in the engineering profes- sion — he must be thoroughly equipped with the fundamentals of engineering, but, also, he must possess the fundamentals of a liberal education. His vision must not be limited to the slide rule, the Tee square, and the engineers hand book, but must extend to business, public service, and human Twenty-five 1UI TM1 HALCYO ©FllSTO DRAWING IT OUT relations in industry — for the world is turning to the engineer for the solution of problems of this vital char- acter. This condition of affairs was gradually b e i ti g brought about in the Unit- ed States before the war, and the effect of the war has been to greatly accel- erate the movement. The most casual obser- vation will serve to show that the Engineering profession, the world over, enjoys a standing of impor- tance to-day never before granted it by the world ' s greatest thinkers. In order to make this position secure, the engineers of the future must be educated along very liberal lines, for only by that means is it possible to de- velop men with the capacity for success in such a broad field. The Engineering Courses at Swarthmore College are planned with this end in view. The fact that its graduates are at this time serving the Nation in a great variety of positions, ranging from those requiring the highest tech- nical skill to those requiring little technical skill, but business and executive ability of a high order, seems to indicate the success of this plan. Besides serv- ing the Nation in its industrial life, graduates hold commissions in almost all branches of our military service. It is also noteworthy that conscripted men have had a wide choice of service, due no doubt to the fact that their education made it possible for them to become easily adjusted to technical, scientific, or executive work.

Those ideals, for a very definite reason, are what they were before the war. From Chaucer and Langland to Masefield and Shaw, the greatest English literature has been a continuous attempt to turn the world to liberty and democracy. Consequently the war has seemed to call for no fundamental revision of courses in English literature. And the same is true of courses in composition for few things are more important in a democracy than wide dissemination among its citizens of the power of clear and forcible expression. But while it has no change in organization or policy to report, the English department feels that the war has brought it new appre- ciation of the importance of its work and hopes that that appreciation will be reflected in the effectiveness with which that work is done. The only change in the teaching staff has been the resignation of Mrs. Priscilla Goodwyn Griffin and the appointment of Mr. Raymond Morse Her- rick as instructor in English. Twenty-nine TM!

BREWSTER Assistant Professor The Department of Greek and Latin feels deeply the well-nigh irreparable loss which it has sustained in the death of the late Professor Dennison, who brought to the college in rare combination the qualities of teacher and admin- istrator, gentleman and scholar. A permanent successor to Professor Den- nison has not yet been appointed; for the present year, 1917-18, Assistant Professor Meeteer and Assistant Professor Brewster have supervised the department. Three courses have been conducted very ably by Oscar R. Sandstrom, who is completing his work for the Doctorate at the University of Pennsylvania. The Classical Club has flourished under the presidency of Edith W. Menclenhall and under a very efficient executive committee headed by Abigail I. Moore. In spite of the war, it has not been deemed necessary to alter the curriculum to any great extent. Special attention has always been given to questions of history and political science, of ancient art, and religion and philosophy in their relation to the present. When modern newspapers, periodicals, and war liter- ature read like garbled accounts of Caesar ' s wars in France or of Livy ' s nar- rative of Teutonic invasions, when the nations of the world are struggling for the ideals of patriotism or for the practices of discipline and organization for which Greece and Rome are famed, the Classics appear to be thoroughly up- to-date as a military and political handbook.

Clothier Professor of History and International Relations. PROFESSOR WILLIAM I. HULL The Department of History in Swarthmore College has reflected in its development a change in the American college world and also the chang- ing interests of the American people. In 1892, when Doctor Hull came to Swarthmore, the department in- cluded the subjects of History, Politics, Economics and Social Science. Twelve years later Politics was assigned to a separate department, and in 1908 the Department of Economics and Social Science was established. Beginning with the meeting of the Second Hague Conference in 1907 the growing interest throughout the world, and especially in the United States, in the subject of International Relations was recognized and the Department of History has been developed largely since that year in the direction of em- phasizing more and more the international significance of general history, the study of European and American diplomatic history, the study of inter- national law, and the development of the International Organization. American history throws such a flood of light upon the various aspects of the International Government which is being worked out in our time that it seems peculiarly appropriate for students of Internationalism in our Ameri- can colleges to carry over their study of the past into the world ' s attempt to solve its political problems of the present and the future.

The courses in this department are de- signed to meet the wants of those students who later desire to do graduate work in the best universities, to teach mathematics in prepara- tory schools, or to pursue engineering or other technical courses. The activities of the alumni of the department seem to indicate that it his achieved at least to a measureable extent these ambitions. Certain of its alumni have done graduate work and have received doctor ' s degrees or master ' s degrees from higher institutions of learning and are now engaged in teaching or in research work in colleges, universities, or other scientific foun- dations. A greater number are teaching in the preparatory schools ; there are some who are farmers, but farmers in a big way ; som e are bank presidents ; a considerable number are in actuarial work; some are connected with engi- neering firms ; others have entered business pursuits ; and several of our men have laid aside their professor ' s togas or the cares of business to answer the call of the Country as privates or as commissioned officers in the army or navy. The members of the teaching staff of the department also devote as much time as is consistent with good teaching to various problems in astronomical research, the study of the distances of stars from us receiving the major part of this attention. The observatory has from time to time issued publications of the results of these researches, the last of which. Publication No. 4, was issued in June, 19 17. It contains a record of the observations made at the observatory by which the distances of fifty stars from the earth were obtained. The department library receives in exchange for these publications those of practically all the observatories of the world. Some of the advanced students of the department have participated actively and effectively in these researches.

For the land in which we are particu- larly interested is the prey of the invader; her glorious cathedrals, town halls and art collections in the northeast have been despoiled, and many of her most promising young literary and linguistic scholars have laid down their pens here on earth forever. But with our feeling of sadness is ment of pride. Unexampled fortitude and heroism have made known to the world that " sweet France, " la dolce France for which Charlemangne and his knights performed their wonderful deeds, is even greater now than in the days of her earlier civilization. Materially, the department is in opulent circumstances, Mrs. Creighton and Mrs. Plass resigned last June, and in September we imported from the University of Chicago as assistant in French, young Dr. MacClintock, son of the Professor MacClintock, so well known to English scholars. mingled a senti- Senorita Iribas continued with the Spanish.

NEWPORT The Department of German is at the present time in an unenviable posi- tion. All over the country people are clamoring, and educational institutions are listening to their demands, that the study of the German language be dis- continued. But the College administration, like all liberal minded persons, realizes that the present war is a struggle for democracy and not a war of hate. They are therefore supporting the Department and helping it to keep up to its standard. The ideals of the department have changed consider- ably. The study of the German language is no longer its principal work. More time is spent in studying the po- litical and economic life, the customs, literature and art of the German people. Their relation with " The Imperial German Government " is closely studied. In a new course " Kultur " is discussed. The same course observes the work of the government in moulding the ideals of the people through their educational system. That the present policy of the department is doing a valuable patriotic work is evident. It keeps uppermost in the student ' s mind that the war is a world wide strug- gle for democracy and that our success will be a victor) ' for the German people. Thus the Department of German at the present time certainly justifies its existence. Thirty-eight PHONETICS part: apolitical Science Robert C. Brooks, Ph.D. (Cornell), Joseph Wharton Professor of Political Science. It ROBERT C. BROOKS The aim of the Political Science Department is to develop its students into intelligent and effective citizens. Not only are existing governments critically studied, but proposals for their reform are given attention. Our municipal, state, and federal governments, and the governments and parties of Europe, are studied with this end in view. The present war has not altered the aim of the depart- ment. It has merely opened up a larger field for their development. Through the medium of newspapers and current magazines, the action of governments under the stresses of war and the struggles of governments in the making are studied. A special war course is offered in which different phases of the literature produced by the war are discussed. Early in December, Doctor Brooks was called into the federal service for several weeks to explain the plan of government insurance to the men in the training camps. He was assigned to Camp Cody in New Mexico. On his return he gave his classes much first hand information about the training camps and the class of men who are in them. During Doctor Brooks ' leave of absence, Miss Anna Michener of the class of 1916 who is .now doing graduate work in Columbia University, conducted the class work.

PROFESSOR JESSE H. HOLMES The study of the history of Philosophy has been a part of the college curriculum from the first years of the college; it was not, however, a distinct department and was taught in conjunction with other subjects by various instructors. President de Garmo gave a course, required of all seniors, including a semester of Philosophy and one of Psychology. This was continued in the term of President Birdsall by Dr. Hull and Dr. Trotter. Before 1900 there was no systematic college work in Bible study of religion for which credit was given. For a few years before that time brief courses of lectures were given on topics associated with the Bible and with the Christian re- ligion, the most notable of which was a course by Dr. Marl- ton, editor of the Reader ' s Bible. In the winter of 189S-9, Dr. Holmes gave a course of five lectures at the college on the Old Testament times, and in the spring he was appointed to a professorship, the work of which included Bible study. Philosophy, and some work in History. The work in Bible study was regarded as an experi- ment at first; but after two years trial it was decided to make it permanent, and soon after the department was more clearly defined about as it is at the present time. Various changes have taken place since the adven t of President Swain. The course in Psychology was passed over to the newly formed department of education. The course in History of Phil- osophy has been lengthened, and a new course — an Introduc- tion to Philosophy — has been added. Additional courses in Ethics. Ideal Governments. History of Christianity. History of Religions, The Gospels, and Life and Work of Paul have been presented, some of which have been made part of a regular major course, while others have been given to meet a temporary need.

Hicks, A.B., A.M.-(Swarthmore), Assistant Professor of Public Speaking. (In Charge of Department). Elizabeth B. Oliver, A.B., A.M., (Swarth- m ' ore), Instructor in Public Speaking. PHILIP M. HICKS Assistant Professor In the excitement that attended the first year of our entrance into the Great War it is not to be wondered at that the Department of Public Speaking, like some other ultra patriotic organizations, lost its head. After fifteen years of continuous service Professor Paul M. Pearson decided, in the early days of September, 191 7, to take a well earned rest from the society of Burns of Get- tysburg and Annabel Lee. Yhether that " rest " would ever have become an actuality even in peace times, those who know Professor Pearson may be in- clined to doubt. As it happened the Y. M. C. A. Commission -on Training Camp Activities issued a call to which he made an immediate response and as- sumed the position of Director of Camp Entertainments. Meanwhile the Department has pursued its accustomed ways. No new courses have been added, but the seriousness of the times has not been without effect upon the material chosen for class work and the quality of work done. The various contests, plays, and debates over which the Department has supervision have been scheduled and held as usual, not entirely, at least, because 1 f the inertia of long established custom but in a belief that the function of the college in war time is to keep alive, for those who are permitted to enjoy them, every instrumentality whose training may add to the individual ' s equipment for service. The stress which the great democracies of the world are laying upon the importance of propaganda, the campaign of reading and teaching public thought, the establishment by various branches of the government of Speak- ing Bureaus have combined to lend a new seriousness to the ancient art of public speech. Forty-one TUT TO] O- ALCT OF 1919 iDepartment of " br 5ic5 Harvey C. Hayes, A.B., A.M., Ph.D. (Har- vard ) .Professor of Physics. William 0. Sawtelle, Acting Professor of Physics. The department of Physics is in an unusual position in that it has several standards to meet. In the first place the department offers a very general course in elementary physics. This course is taken by many art students as part of their credit in science. The same course is necessarily taken by engineers and chemists who are to take advanced work. This is followed by another course, general but much more advanced, which is taken by engineers and chemists and is part of their required work. Majors in the department after taking the course mentioned, go into much more advanced work. After taking several courses they are allowed to do research work in their senior year. The equipment in the department, both for standard laboratory work and for research, is very good. The work of the department is being carried on by Professor William O. Sawtelle, an old friend and classmate of Dr. Hayes, who is now on leave of absence working: for the Government. PROFESSOR W SAWTELLE FRESHMAN LAB. Forty-two PART! " Department of 4 b? 5ica l education for Mien E. LeRoy Mercer, M.D. (Pennsylvania), Direc- tor of Physical Education. The purpose of the Department of Physical Educa- tion is not primarily to develop intercollegiate athletic teams but to see .that every student gets proper and well directed exercise. Students are encouraged to take part in competitive sports. Here at Swarthmore a very large percentage of men try and try hard to make some team. It is this fact and not undue specialization on a small group of men that makes Swarthmore ' s success- ful teams. The work of the department, therefore, can be judged not only by the success of our teams but also by the fact that athletics develop quickness of mind and perseverance that can be learned in no other way. DR. E. I.EROY MERCER Somen ' s Jpl)?sical £6ucation J.IT.T.IAX SHAW Lillian Shaw, A.B., Director of Physical Edu- cation of the Women. The chief aim of the Department of Physical Edu- cation for Women is to keep all of the girls of the stu- dent body in good physical trim by giving them health- ful and envigorating exercise in group athletics, be- sides encouraging them to take the daily amount of sleep and exercise needed by all students to give the fullest value to their college work. Naturally, however, competitive atheltics also claim a place as a funct ion of this department ' s work. These serve two purposes: — through the interclass contests they give opportunity to large numbers of girls for participation; while through the outside matches of the varsity teams they afford representation for the best athletic ability of the college. It is safe to say that success in this phase of the work has been more marked this year than ever before.

Forty-four CAMPUS VIEWS Forty-five TH1 Halcto o- of i©n© (Tommencement THE PROCESSION The Commencement of 1917 had a different spirit from the usual gala-day excitements. America was in a state of war, and the festivities definitely changed in character. The Seniors, men and women alike, were looking forward to a transition from books to action, and many had already left for government service. Commencement week began on Thursday, June 7, with the usual stream of fancy hats, white dresses, new neckties and immaculate flannels through the rain to the library. There the Senior class lunched and was entertained by the faculty. Class day presented the first real innovation. After President Clarence Lukens ' speech of welcome, Walter Smith and Bee Jenkins inflicted death and wounds upon the clas s by their basket of gifts and witty verses. This is the first time a class presenter has had a lady aide-de-camp. The next part of the program was the Senior Play, this year managed, staged, and acted by Senior women. " Prunella, or Love in a Dutch Garden, " was a real work of art. Even the sky wept at times. Alumni Day was as clear and hot as any one could wish. The front campus was used as the scene of action because of the unfinished state of Swarthmore Field. The red, white and blue of ' 07 played scarlet goblins of ' 15 in a fast and exciting game of baseball, while a band and the old Swarthmore spirit added much pep to the programme. " Prunella " was re- peated successfully and this time without the accom- paniment of rain. DEDICATION OF WHARTON Forty-six ' Oepairtmemth Sunday was a day of last services. Dr. Miller de- livered his farewell address to the Seniors as the Bac- calaureate Sermon on " Change in the American Col- lege: a Retrospect. " In the evening the Seniors planted their ivy by the Library, and the class sang for the last time, " The Spring Has Crossed the Campus. " At the end of the ivy exercises the last collection was held in Parrish. Commencement day was honored by the dedica- tion of Wharton Hall. Then genial Jeremiah Jenks gave some sound advice on " The Citizen and His Government, " to the out-going class, and Doc Alleman handed out diplomas. Many degrees were conferred " in absentia " and the college understood a little more about war. Everybody went away glad that the rain held off until the sheepskins were handed safely out of sight.

It is the home of great men and incorruptible politicians. And " Al " lives up to the reputation of his native state. If you are a second late for lunch, the prettiest smiles, the highest bribes or your prize tough luck stories are useless.

Chemistry And lo there came up out of the land of West Ches- ter a certain Jacob, blessed with a mind of steel and an arguery of India rubber. Now albeit this Jacob was small of stature, he feared nought, but girt up his loins with linens of the great god Bluff, and annointed him- self with ignorance-hiding myrrh of argument, and girt on his armor of a strong mind and fared into the pres- ence of the fiercest Profs of that wicked land of the Quakers and entered into the dens of the most terrible courses. And when the even came and the trumpets blew and the sheepskins rolled out, lo Jacob was a victor. Ninety-six ESTHER ANNE NEWCOMER 5301 WinSeld Avenue PHILADELPHIA, PA. Economics " Hello, I want to see thee " — (followed by business of linking arms, conversing in low tones, and wander- ing away to secluded corners of the hall). Later: " Say, what have you studied for that Economics? I ' m scared stiff of that exam. I ' ve got Physiology to-mor- row, too. Can ' t study now, though, ' cause I ' ve got to get dressed — promised to go for a walk before dinner. Think I ' ll try using curling-irons to see if I can ' t burn some of these old kinks out of my hair. Seen Vernam? " JOHN MAHLON OGDEN OGDEN, PA. History " Gillespie, stick your head out of that . window, " comes roaring through the typewriter clicking, mando- lin strumming night air of the quadrangle. _ The win- dow slams up. " What ' ll you have, you hog-faced farm- er? " bellows back Gilly. And then Jawn winds up that precious $10,000 arm and lets drive a snowball with a speed and accuracy that has won him a try-out on the Giants. John dives for his stronghold on A-2 with Gillespie on his heels. A typical Ogden scrap has started and only two well timed, much practiced vocau- laries disturb the studious atmosphere of our ivied academic nook. RUTH MARIE ORNDORFF 5816 Whitby Avenue PHILADELPHIA, PA. English The worst we can say about Ruth is that she is en- tirely too modest and bashful. It took us almost two years to get to know her — which was decidedly our loss. But now that we know her ability in tennis and bas- ketball — not to mention dancing — we are making up for lost time. If you don ' t believe it go to a college dance and try to get a dance with her. Ninety-seven TM1 Halcyo o OFflS)E9 EDGAR ZAVITZ PALMER CHESTER, PA. Political Science The editor glances at the name of the next victim of his biting pen and then hastily grabs for his Webster ' s Unabridged. For it takes words to handle a man like " Zeke " Palmer, and words such as the vo- cabulary of this editor is unacquainted with. He is the supreme intellectual highbrow of our little academic world and moves in circles peopled by Preston Judd, Robert Willetts, George Hayes and other elite minds. He would rather argue for an hour on the Ethics of Spinoza than revel in a ninth inning Philly victory or the relative merits of Camels and Philip Morris ' s. ANDREW RUSSELL PEARSON SWARTHMORE, PA. Economics If you stop in any small town in the East and men- tion the fact that you are from Swarthmore, a dozen voices ask if you know Pearson. For he is our best known Swarthmore booster. During nine months of the year " Drew " punches a well oiled typewriter for the Phoenix, debates, or slaughters our enemies on the lacrosse field. But it is during the other three months that " Drew " is in his element. During that time he leaves behind him friends and recollections of " Seven Joyous Days " in towns from Maine to Florida. ALLIN HUGH PIERCE FORT DODGE, IOWA Economics Al has two ambitions in life. The first and more generally known is to continually start, carry on, and win arguments. But he has recently developed another ambition — namely to keep the editors from spending too much money. So every day he comes into our room, examines our list of cuts and tells us of hard times, war economy and the extra postage necessary if we put one page too many in this Halcyon. Ninety-eight MARGARET ELGAR POWELL LANSDOWNE, PA. Astronomy If you ask me anything casually about Chemistry or Math, I don ' t give brilliant answers. I ' m too lazy. I don ' t seem to take more than a passing interest in les- sons. I ' m too lazy. I ' m awfully fond of physical com- fort and novels. I ' m lazy. But the Profs know I ' m on the job. And my marks show that my brain isn ' t half so lazy as the rest of me. 1 t -l l THOMAS ROWE PRICE, JR. GLYNDON, MD. Chemistry I seem to. have no major, I change from time to time. I thought I ' d be a doctor Now chemist ' s heights I ' d climb. And so it is with women.

ELIZABETH PYLE 3310 Newark Street WASHINGTON, D. C. French If Betty thinks you want to know a thing, she never lets it cross her lips. She will never tell you what she has been doing, what she is doing at present, or what she is going to do next. She will never tell you what she got on an examination, what she thinks of an acquaintance, or what she wants. She will never tell you whether she has climbed the water tower or how she managed to see the whole of the Monk and Devil fight. And so she absolutely refused to do her own write-up — and consequently she hasn ' t any. Ninety-nine TIKI! Halcy ©F 11919 OSBORN ROBINSON QUAYLE 2306 Delaware Avenue WILMINGTON, DEL. Chemical Engineering People who see this young man wearily and slowly walking to classes are often lead to believe that such is his nature. But great is their mistake. For Quayle is merely conserving and storing away energy to be used at a later date. For what? In the spring you would never recognize him as the same man. All the accumulated energy of fall and spring is let loose in bursts of speed that carry the Garnet to victory. GLADYS AMANDA REICHARD BANGOR, PA. Latin Oh I am just taking Greek and Latin so I can teach them and Math so I can teach that and Biology so I can be a Doctor. I hate to miss anything. Fd like to drive a locomotive wouldn ' t you? (If the rest of us worked as hard as she does we wouldn ' t be hankering after locomotives.) Oh. no, I ' m not signed up in Victorian Lit yet. I just go. Don ' t you think Miss Hogue is great? And don ' t you love hockey? I just think hockey is the grandest game. HELEN HUTCHINSON REID LANSDOWNE, PA. History Scarcity at Swarthmore is my specialty. You all look from the front windows and envy me my daily auto ride back and forth from Lansdowne, except when my machine gets stuck in front of Parrish in a foot or so of snow, and I need two motor-trucks to pull it out. You catch brief glimpses of me at occasional college dances, but for you to dance with me is impossible with a crowd of Lansdowners always surrounding me. You used to see me playing in class basketball games, but now I ' ve even given up that form of exercise, and let motoring suffice. One Hundred WILLIAM LINCOLN RIDPATH mk Lane PHILADELPHIA, PA. Economics This interview is very distasteful to me. In fact, next to rooming with Corson my worst misfortune is being modest. My favorite sport is football. Yes, I am rather clever at the game. My ambition at present is to make another touchdown. You might mention my spectacu- lar run at Haverford last year. Please shut the door as you go out and tell that Phoenix reporter he may call at my other office. Where? The Reception Par- lor, 7 to 8 any evening. Good day. HELEN KOONS ROBEY 3122 West Wyoming Avenue GERMANTOWN.PA. Public Speaking I think there are too many girls around here that aren ' t knitting. I swear it makes me ill, after reading about how those poor boys need gloves, to see some of those people making sweaters for themselves. You know I am going to be worried sick for the next month now. His letter this morning said that the whole camp was quarantined. Sh-Sh, Dot ' s asleep — can ' t you see the sign? Where ' s Bess? I promised her I ' d go down to Collection to practice that new song a while before going down to the Inn to take supper with mamma and daddy. ELEANOR RAE RUNK PHILIPSBURG, PA. English You ' d never know from my conversation that I had some striking characteristics. I ' m no highbrow, and I ' d much rather laugh and sing than talk. How I was put together, I don ' t know. Would you think that a regular rough-neck like me would take to music and do it so well? And I guess I don ' t kid all the time, be- cause they made me Vice President of Women ' s Stu- dent Government! Wasn ' t that the colossal nerve? One Hundred One TIKI] Halcyo o- OF 1919 IRMA KIPP RUSSELL BEDFORD, PA. Psychology Kipp refuses to disclose her character. Kipp says she does not like the climb up the asphaltum, nor puns, nor crawly things. Kipp says she likes Quaker maids and sleep. Kipp says she especially likes bad little boys of the Juvenile court variety. Kipp says she is majoring in Psychology out of sympathy for the feeble minded. HELENE SCOTT 413 West Twenty-eighth Street WILMINGTON, DEL. French To let you into a deep, dark secret, I ' m very fond of French " Majors. " I wouldn ' t let my " wife " know this for anything. She ' s " Cross " and I ' m afraid of her. Yes, sir! She thinks I indulge only in Tea-Room and stamps — she doesn ' t know that lessons hold forth their inducements — especially at exam time — so you ' ll prom- ise not to tell her, won ' t vou? No, indeed, I don ' t keep any secrets from my " wife. " PHOEBE UNDERHILL SEAMAN JERICHO, N. Y. History I just seem to belong to the college. My aunts know everybody that was ever on the Board of Managers, and I have cousins and cousins who came here. I know everybody ' s relations and sub-relations. I really came to college to have a good time, and I ' m having it, (ex- cept when I have to read the New Republic). I get the best eats from home of anybody on the hall, and I just laugh and giggle all the time. Isn ' t that just gr-r-e-at? One Hundred Txvo ANDREW SIMPSON DARBY, PA.

Success; he is as sure of it as America. EDMUND PAUL SMITH 827 North 63rd Street PHILADELPHIA, PA Civil Engineering People often say that I am absent-minded, but it isn ' t so. My trouble is that I can only think of one thing at a time. That is why I can ' t study. You see in the fall I ' ll manage the football team, in the winter I do what I forget in the fall, and in the spring I am most of the track team. Even then I haven ' t time to practice, but I find that walking to and from the library keeps me in fine condition. EUGENE MICHENER STALLINGS DANVILLE, ILL. Chemistry Stallings ' marks of identification change as the sun wanders up, over, and down the heavens. In the morn- ing it ' s a khaki army shirt, handed down, from a long- line of union plumbers. In the afternoon it ' s the typical western farmer lad ' s failing for a trip to the big town. In the evening it ' s a tripping of the light fantastic with a wild young Quaker maid or a fatherly pride in Bud ' s jigging. And over it all hangs the mystery of mem- ories of great parties that only an ex-student of a great western university can darkly keep to himself.

But when you want to make a noise during quiet hour, you may hunt some other hall than mine; it won ' t go while I am hall president. ELINOR CHRISTINA STOUT WENONAH, N. J.

Comfort, President of Haverford College. Instead of one long play, three one-act productions were given, proving themselves a happy selection on the part of Miss Oliver, the coach, in their humorous and dramatic interests. The first one, " The Tents of the Arabs, " by Lord Dunsany, was a serious, romantic love story of the Orient, wherein a king leaves his city in answer to a call of the Desert. The members of the cast who so well enacted this play were as follows: David Griscom Harold Stubbs George Hayes Joseph Sickler Frank Fetter Dorothy Young Bel-Narb, Camel Driver - Aoob, Camel Driver - The King ------ The Chamberlain - Lambra, a Notable ----- Eznarza, a Gypsy of the Desert - The second play. " Modesty, " by Paul Hervieu, was a modern French love story of a much lighter type than the preceding play. Janet Young in the leading role as " Henriette " showed how charming a very " modest " young maiden can be. She was ably supported by the two other members of the cast, the rival lovers, Jacques and Albert, who in real life are no other than Mai- ' com Hodge and Carl Pratt. " Helena ' s Husband, " by Philip Moeller, the third and last play of the evening, kept the audience laughing from start to finish with the humorous satire of the old classic story of the love of Paris and Helen. Helena, the queen, lived up to her traditional beauty, while Menelaeus, fat and stupid, was a fitting explanation to those of us who have wondered why Helena forsook him for the handsome shepherd boy. The other two characters, Analytikos, ' the king ' s librarian, and Tsumu, the queen ' s Nubian slave, were humorous — especially in their lack of beauty and grace. Cast of Characters Helena, the Queen - - Tsumu, Slave to Helena Menelaeus, the King - Analytikos, the King ' s Librarian Paris, a Shepherd - One Sixty-eight Helen Atkins Katherine Fahnestock Ruth Kistler - Opal Robinson - Katherine Price ' Ol)£ Romancers On Somerville Day. the " old grads " were once more treated to a delightful play, given by the active members of the Somerville Liter- ary Society. " The Romancers, " by Edmund Rostand, is as the name indicates, a play of " heavy lovers. " There are really two pairs of them, although the would-be Romeo and Juliet. Helen Coles as Per- cinet and Mina Gould as Sylvette, do not suspect that their two fathers are as romantic as themselves. The conspiracy of these old gentlemen to force their children to fall in love with each other forms the plot of the play. Frances Maxwell, as Straforel, the swash-buckler, made a fine would-be villain, terrifying completely the dainty heroine and calling forth all the bravado of the hero. Alice Fricke as Pasquinot and Dorothy Young as Berg-amon did justice to their roles, and contributed largely to the fun of the after- noon.

Due to conditions brought about by the country ' s entrance into the great war, it was the Senior women alone who gave the class play, " ' Prunella, " by Lawrence Houseman and Granville Barker. This play was especially adapted to out-of-doors presentation, and seemed to breathe the very spirit of the woods. Minna Gould, acting as " Prunella, " is held in tight leash by three very strict maiden aunts, " Prim, " " Prude. " and " Privacy, " who lived up perfectly to their names, and thus showed the acting ability of the three girls who took the parts : Lillian Trego, Florence Kennedy and Beatrice Jenkins. But from start to finish the sympathies of the audience were with the little heroine. That was of course as it should have been. Indeed the part was so well enacted that we could scarcely refrain from letting her into the secret, and helping to set straight the misunderstanding between her and her ardent lover, " Pierrot, " played by Helen Coles, well known to college audiences. Miss Cole ' s portrayal of Pierrot lacked none of the romantic, sighing-lover quality so necessary for the part. The dances of the mummers and of the wood nymphs were unusually attractive, and helped to cast an air of unreality over the whole play, which made us forget for the time that we were living in a very practical present. But it was when " Love, the Statue, " none other than Emily Joyce, came to life and gave admonition to the lovers, that we sighed and wished that such things really did happen outside of the fairy realm. Frances Maxwell as " Scaramel " and Margaret Yerkes as " a boy " added to the fun and merriment of the play by their clever interpretation of character. In fact all the characters played up to their parts in a most satisfactory way; the pathos, the humor, all the varying emotions were presented in their true proportions. But aside from the success of the play itself, the .women of 1917 deserve great credit for overcoming obstacles and preserving an institution of such standing as the annual Senior play. The cast was as follows: Pierrot Scaramel, his servant Hawk - Kennel] Callow Mouth Doll Romp Tawdry Coquette Tenor, a hired singer Prunella Prim Prude Privacy Queen Quaint First Second Third Boy Love, a Statue Mummers I fer Aunts Gardeners Helen Coles Frances Maxwell Helen Daniels Dorothy Hanson Hester Levis Margaret Willets Anna Sullivan Ruth Craighead Theo Hamilton Mary Gawthrop Hester Levis Minna Gould Lilltan Trego Florence Kennedy I Beatrice Jenkins Rebecca Conrow Marian Keene Mary Atkinson Clementine Smith Elizabeth Morrison Margaret Yerkes Emily Joyce One Seventy One Scvenly-one TM! Halcy OF 119119 " .A Ol)ousan6 ears -Ago " By Percy Mackaye " Here in China, the World Lies Adream, Like a Thousand Years Ago, and the Place of Our Dreams Is Eternal " When all was said and done, and the curtain had descended for the last time on " A Thousand Years Ago " — the class of ' 19 had proved conclusively that it was not suffering from any dearth of footlight stars. Indeed this play brought forward many hitherto unsuspected genii — such as stage managers, scenery artists and costumers. Staged under the direction of Elizabeth B. Oliver, the play could not help being a success, even had there not been those very able assistants from the class who trained the musical choruses and dancers. The musical numbers, directed by Helen Robey, were unusually attractive. Helen, accompanied by a chorus of beautiful Chinese maidens, sang a clever parody, " Poor Turandot. " There was also a quartet composed of Helen Robey, Eleanor Runk, Kipp Russell and Helen Biddle. As for the dances, certainly no one will ever forget the charming Persian maidens, the poor captives forced to dance for the emperor ' s pleasure. The two solo dances by Janet Brown and Katherine Fahnestock were quite appro- priate, the former in its sprightliness and gayety as the spirit of the court, and the latter in its romance, breathing interpretation of the spirit of the night. It was when " Edda " Caris and " Murdy " Blake appeared as Chinese laun- dry men that the audience lost all restraint and broke into gales of laughter and wondered why they had never heard these two comedians before. " A Thousand Years Ago " seems but as yesterday to those who saw and to those who participated. It will not be easy to forget the gorgeous settings, SOPH SHOW CASTE One Seventy-iivo the magnificent costumes, or, above all, the skillful way in which the cast handled their parts. It was all of these things which went to make up a pro- duction which delighted both afternoon and evening audiences and made the Sophomore Show of the Class of ' 19 one to be remembered among those of the past, and to be emulated by those of the future.

Hopkins One Seventy-four Ol)c Mlusical (Hubs The musical clubs this year encountered much hard luck ; met obstacles which, at times, seemed to be almost insurmountable ; but in spite of all had a very successful season. Lloyd Wilson, this year ' s manager, did not return to college as he was in war work. That left the management of the clubs to Assistant Manager New- bold Taylor. Early in the college year Taylor left college to enlist so that the clubs were again without a manager. Ralph Heacock was elected manager and James Molloy was elected assistant manager, and everyone thought that the difficulties were all overcome, but not so. Heacock, seeing that by devot- ing his entire time to work he could graduate by the spring mid-semesters, lie decided to give up the glee club. Molloy then became manager and Raymond Michener was elected assistant manager. Molloy had only begun work on the schedule when he became ill and, after missing almost two months of col- lege, decided to rest the remainder of the year. Michener then took over the management of the clubs and, although he was successful in getting- concerts so far gone that it was impossible to arrange any of near home, the year was the usual long trips. The clubs, this year, have been under the direction of Joseph Hopkins and Freeman Barnes. Both these men have shown their taste and ability in the selection of the music and training of the clubs. The programmes were up to the usual Swarthmore standard. The Camouflage Quartet — Wassman, Gris- com, Barnes and Heck — always pleased its audiences. Freeman Barnes dem- onstrated to the public that Paul Gemmil is not the only Magician which Swarthmore can claim as a son. The Medley Five — Passmore, Davenport, Moore, Hess and Barnes — furnished " Jazz " music of the most approved style. The Glee Club, under the leadership of Freeman Barnes, sang a well chosen selection of classical and humorous songs. The instrumental club, after losing its leader, James Molloy, rallied under the baton of Freeman Barnes and played to applauding audiences. Much credit is due Freeman Barnes and Raymond Michener for the suc- cess of the season, time to the clubs. The prospects for next year are good but very uncertain. There is plenty of talent in college, but those who. have been closest in touch with the affairs of the clubs this year feel that war conditions make it almost useless to try to carry out a schedule. Time alone will tell. Both worked with untiring zeal and devoted much of their Scbe ulc for 1917-18 TueHday, February 12 — Strath Haven Inn, Swarth- more.

Cornog as a Swarthmore Athlete but it would be unfair to write a resume of the football season of 19 17 without including the part played in its suc- cesses by the captain of the team. That part was LEADERSHIP. Cornog ' s leadership can be expressed in two words, character and ability. Char- acter, expressed in moral uprightness, honesty to self and friends, unselfish comradeship, lack of conceit, and loyalty to Swarthmore, added strength to his captaincy. Ability, though a quality in itself is akin to character in a broad sense. The ability of Captain Cornog is well known to everyone. His four years of varsity playing were marked by a gradual mastery of the tactics of the game. His fourth year, when necessity forced him to a greater excellence, he met the situa- tion and carried his teammates along by creating a pace which stood as an ideal of perfection in football. Many times during the season when reverses seemed sure he gathered his reserve forces together and demanded results, his team responded and results came. His constancy in practice, his determination and courage in emergencies, were factors which lead his team to many victories. Cornog was willing to give and take, he realized that individual effort without team play was futile. Whatever his duty on offense or defense, he worked conscientiously, imbued with this central idea. He admitted his mistakes cheerfully only to respond with renewed effort and greater accomplishment. Thus Swarthmore ' s 1917 football captain commanded the respect and sup- port of his men and finished his career by placing his name on the honor roll of his ALMA MATER. CAI T. ALLISON G. CORNOG, ' 18 Two Eleven T1HI! Halcto: OF 119119 o )z 1917 Oeam By Coach Roy Mercer Following the recommendations of the United States Government Authori- ties and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, Swarthmore College decided to continue athletic sports in a normal way during the period of the war. regardless of the strength of the various teams. The marked exodus of men during the spring of nineteen seventeen left us with a decided deficit of veteran material for the teams of the ensuing year. With such a deficit, but with a large and strong freshman class, the football season of the fall of nineteen seventeen was ushered in. Beginning with a nucleus of five men of previous experience in football at Swarthmore, three of whom were varsity men of the year before, possi- bilities for a strong team looked doubtful. Two defeats, one from Bucknell and the other from the University of Pennsylvania, were accepted pessimistically by many, but most optimistically by the coaches and players. In that period of defeat, the individual ability of the men was greater than expected ; spirit was wholesome, with every man striving to so adjust himself to the efforts of his teammates that success might eventuallv come. Before a month of practice had passed, freshmen and upper classmen alike had grasped the necessary requirements for success in football, co-operative effort and discipline. The one thing that impressed the coaches most of all was the seriousness of the men in trying to assimilate the necessarily hurried teaching. At all times, however, a good-natured comradeship reigned. Natural ability, there was in great plenty, but the success of the team, after the constructive period had passed, was the result of harmony, expressed in constant response to leadership and in co-operation, stimulated by courage, determination and real Swarthmore Spirit. To say that the 191 7 team was the best in Swarthmore ' s history, might or might not be exaggeration, but one fact remains, this group of men has the distinction of achieving the results most worth while, winning of games, yes, but greater still, the mastery of the game itself, the sportsman " s keen joy of clean competition with the consequent wholesome benefits and the satisfac- tion of having contributed to a bright page in Swarthmore ' s athletic history. Two Twelve Athletic. 1917 FOOTBALL SQUAD Football Review The Garnet football team of 191 7 was a strenuously husky war baby. War baby? Yes; for the war so drained Swarthmore ' s athletic material that there were only three veterans back on the team, and of the sixteen men to win their letters, ten were freshmen. But in spite of these conditions the team made a record that has never been equalled by the Little Quaker gridiron gladiators. When the old bell finally stopped tolling the victory over Haver- ford, the season ' s record showed 238 points to our credit and but 40 to our opponents. These points had been gleaned with true Quaker economy from six consecutive victories and only two defeats. The two defeats came as the season ' s openers, and that is significant. They were earned by a team absolutely new to college football. Tbev acted as a prick to spur on a determined and fighting " eleven, and were not the result of swollen self opinions. Two weeks ' training under Coach Mercer proved that Ally Cornog ' s eleven would have a large Freshman personnel. And so it was that when the team in- vaded Lewisburg for the initial clash with Bucknell, there was a preponderance of green material in the line-up. But that fighting Swarthmore spirit had already got- ten hold of the recruits, and they mowed down their opponents ' defense so well that they had the game " cinched " when the crowd of spectators started to break up. One well placed forward and two misdirected ones quickly turned the tables. The Pennsylvania game was a revelation of future Garnet strength. The final score showed no victory for the little Quakers, but their playing throughout the battle was hard and steady and gave the men such confidence 7 ' n ' a Thirteen CAPT.-ELECT HJDPATIJ.

It is no mean job for a team of many freshmen to fight against such veterans as Bert Bell, Heinie Miller. Benny Lurch, Howard Berry, Wray, and Quigley. Ally Cornog ' s men did it, however, and did it so well that after a single touchdown early in the game, the Red and Blue machine was unable to forge its way across the Swarthmore line. It was no " moral victory, " but it was a gallant fight, and had Dame Fortune graced us a trifle more — and yet, why speculate on the past? Ever since Swarthmore Field had been but a child in the minds of Swarth- moreans, there had been much worry as to the color of the wine that would IWIMi LAEKIN, ' 21 DEAN WIDEN10H, ' 18 Two Fiji ecu TIKI!

The Gettysburg game cleaned up these doubts, and after it was over the new field was drip- ping with the Garnet of a 17-0 victory. Just as the dragons of old used to roar for more blood after their first taste, so it was with Swarthmore field. 17-0 satisfied for her first meal ; 46-0 was scarcely enough when Franklin and Marshall appeared at her den. Two touchdowns and two field goals by Cornog, and a touchdown by Gillespie, gave Swarthmore the high side of a 28-7 victory over Hopkins on the follow- ing Saturday. The new field ' s thirst for blood continued to grow and the members of the team loyally strove to satisfy it. Consequently, their next victim, Lafayette, suffered defeat in a 56-0 style; a defeat, however, that was easily smoothed over with a dance at the Inn. Delaware had been chosen as an entree for Haverford, because they were not considered very formidable. In fact, the confidence of the little Quakers ran so high that they were unable to score during almost the entire first half. Again a bad start served as a spur, and they romped through the second half for twenty- seven points, while Delaware remained scoreless. The new field had been well fed during the fall, but the ravenous appetite of a dragon must have desert as well as that of a mortal. And so Haver- ford journeyed to Swarthmore not confident of victory, not backed by a large mass of root- ers, but hoping, hoping, hoping.

We got away to a bad start, then came back with a vengeance, only to slip again in the last game. Given an equal break with Mr. Jinx and the team would have come near to a spotless record. So our alibi is, and it is a good one, that sickness and injury lost us our five games. To start the season, both Yoder and Cap- tain Donnelly were laid up, and then the final game with Lehigh was played by five men in the grip of severe colds. The seven victories easily overshadow the five defeats, and it can safely be said that the season was a success. Arm} ' was taken into camp for the eighth time in ten years and Lafayette ' s best team was snowed under an avalanche of field goals. Our victories were all clean cut. with the best team winning. Too much credit cannot be given to Coach Joe Fogartv. He developed a team play that has not been equaled by a Swarthmore team of recent years, and he taught the men more real basketball than they ever knew ex- isted before this sea- son. He made good basketball players out of several not too promising Freshmen, and he has left a nucleus for next year ' s team that s h o w s promise for developing i n t o a champion outfit.

Instead of one or two men standing out unusually prominent in the scoring, as in for- mer years, all five men contributed their share. Captain Bodine bad a fast scrub aggregation, and many of his men will return to College to fill up any gaps in the varsity. Included in these men are : Ogden, Howell, Valentine, Kemp, Benjamin, Groff, and Brown. With all these men and Coach Fogarty back on the job, the prospects for next year are unusually bright.

Then the 191 7 team could take no risks on the weather for they had to dedicate the new Alumni Field and they did it with a vengeance. Captain White had a seasoned team behind him. With Cariss on the receiving end and Ogden, C. Cornog, Ames, and Wigmore on the hurling mound the batteries presented no problem at all. Ewell at shortstop was the only new man in the infield. The bases were filled by veterans Sproul, A. Cornog, and Captain White. The outfield presented the greatest problem. All last year ' s " gardeners " had graduated. However, Henderson, Nay, and Boughton pulled down everything that came their way and the loss of the veterans was hardly felt. The season on a whole was highly successful. All the games were won with the exception of the three with Penn and the 1 to 1 tie of 15 innings with the University of Pittsburg. Ellwood Cornog pitched the whole 15 innings. The game was called to allow our team to catch the train to play Penn in the afternoon and Cornog to go to Plattsburg to begin his training for a commission in the army.

Coach Farley had a nucleus of nine veterans, all of whom knew the game as he had taught it. There was a wealth of ma- terial from all four classes, and the followers of the game predicted another championship Garnet team. The season opened with the Mt. Washington Club, one of the best teams in America ; but Swarthmore came home with a 2-2 score, and with victory in her heart. The self-confidence gained in the first game carried the team through the next week and they went to Philadelphia determined to defeat Penn- sylvani a.

" The season, such as it was, was quite successful in that the Swarthmore men carried the Garnet banner tri- umphant over the field of two of the three dual meets, and placed in the Intercollegiates. It was some time after the " On your marks ' - had sounded before the team was ready for the pistol fire that meant " Go. " Numerous difficul- ties were encountered in getting under way. It . was necessary for all the early practice to be held on the Prep School track, due to the delay in finishing the new field.

Henry placed fourth in the pentathlon, capturing two second places and a third. Norman Shidle set a record for meteoric athletic careers when he came out of his shell in the Rutgers meet, the first dual encounter, captured two first places and a second, totalled thirteen points, and secured his letter, all in one meet. We came home from New Brunswick victorious that clay, thanks to Shidle and to Captain Bonner, who won the quarter and the 220-yard clash in his usual fast style. When straw hats came into vogue, Swarthmore went out. Lehigh came down that day and beat us by ten points in the initial college meet on the new track. A week later, when Easton was the scene of the Middle States Inter- collegiates, Corson was the highest point scorer of the Swarthmore delegation, which, when the truth is told, performed none too creditably. Swarthmore ' s second and last win was from Delaware, a pipe victory. Bonner ' s ballad when sung over the 19 17 season features our Captain as a star, not a variable, either. He won his two long-suit events in all three dual meets, the 220-yard dash and the quarter-mile. ' Twas, then, a banner season. V ED SMITH.

Last year ' s high point scorers, Capt. Tomlinson, and Francis Jenkins were back in college, who, with the addition of Freshman Raymond Uhl, the school boy champion, proved a tower of strength envied by the best aquatic teams. The loss of last year ' s captain, Marc Dowdell, was felt greatly in the plunge at the beginning of the season, but later on the handicap was overcome by McAllister and Conahey who developed to the point where they could take most of the points in the meets. During the season the relay record was broken twice : First, the team, composed of At- kinson, H. Jenkins, F. Jenkins and Uhl, lowered the time from 1.57 to 1.56 in the ' Johns Hop- kins meet; later, in the Columbia meet, the team composed of H. Jenkins, F. Jenkins, Atkin- son and Capt. Tomlinson, further lowered the time to I.00V5 at which it now stands. RESULTS OF THE SCHEDULE S.

Arrangements had been made to enter the Pennsylvania State League. Ma- terial was more plentiful than ever before. War-time economy, however, prevented the team from entering- the league and it was decided to play a winter schedule as in previous years. When the time for the season to open had rolled around the winter had begun with a vengeance. The first game played was with State College. The up-State team was ending a vic- torious season, but Swarthmore made them wel- come the final whistle, and a 2-1 victory. The next game was with the Germantown Boys ' Club. The Swarthmore team defeated their older and more experienced opponents by the score of 2-r. The weather man then took the situation in charge and caused the postponement of seven games. At the first sign of spring weather Man- ager Simpson cancelled the remaining three games to allow practice for spring sports to begin. Two Thirty-nine CAP ' J ' . GAWTHKOP, ' 18 TM!

With an all-star team and a multitude of substitutes to pick from, they beat out the seniors, who were the favorites for the series. The seniors, with a team made up of men most of whom had had four years ' varsity or scrub experience, easily took second place.

In the three years that have passed she has made for herself a place at Swarthmore that it would be hard for anyone to fill. Her ' s is the kind of a service that makes description in words seem inadequate. Just what it is she has done would no ' : be easy to say: — Oh, of course, we can point to records of victorious teams and successful May Days as her work, and say they prove her worth — which is, of course, true, but only a very small part of the truth. The biggest work that Miss Shaw has given to the College has been some- thing of which no tangible record can be kept. It is in the wonderful spirit she has put into her teaching, her coaching, her playing, her companionship. . It is in the personality which can not help, in some part, being impressed upon all the girls with whom she has come in contact. This is not meant to eulogize. It is merely meant to express, to some degree, the debt that the undergraduates of Swarthmore feel that they owe to Miss Shaw. It is because of this debt that the news that Miss Shaw will not return to College in the fall brings to most of us a feeling of distinct per- sonal loss. It was in the newspapers of last spring that we learned that, as a reward for having saved a woman from drowning several seasons ago, Miss Shaw had received recogni- tion from the Carnegie Fund. It is this well- deserved fortune that is taking Miss Shaw from us, as she has decided to use the scholar- ship awarded her to study medicine at the Women ' s Medical College of Philadelphia. The best wishes and good will of all Swarth- more students will follow her in her new work. MISS HELEN CDLIN Asst. Instructor Tzvo Forty-six ATHLETE VARSITY HOCKEY TEAM Varsity H ' focke?

ELLSWORTH, ' 18 That this was the most successful ' Var- sity hockey season Swarthmore has ever known it is safe, without any exaggera- tion, to state, as, with more games on the schedule than ever before, with teams ot high caliber, there was not a single defeat to mar the record. Only the fourth goal — scored in the last minutes of .play — by the experienced Riverton Club, prevented our team from being able to boast of de- feating all comers. That Gail Ellsworth proved a capable captain needs no retailing with such a record as verification. Behind her at the beginning of the season she had an en- tirely veteran team, — nine were medal- winners and two were substitutes from the year before. Accidents and ill health, however, caused the loss from the team of both Esther Holmes and Catherine Wright, but luckily Edith Young and Opal Robinson proved able substitutes, and played in enough games to win their medals. This year ' s team was largely drawn from the Senior class, which means that it will take hard work next fall to build up a team to equal the record of the 1917- 1918 bunch. Mary Vernam, for two years mainstay at halfback, has been elected to succeed Gail Ellsworth. The loss of Miss Shaw as coach will be a handicap to her team not lightly felt. However, with five players from this year ' s ' Varsity, four or five " scrubs " and a wealth of material from the younger classes, the fall of 1918 ought to see Swarthmore with a hockey team worthy of its predecessors.

It was a surprise — to all except the Juniors themselves — last fall, when the team work and determination of the Juniors defeated the Senior team, almost entirely made up of ' Varsity players, in the deciding game of the interclass cham- pionship series. The Sophomores played up to a much higher standard than had been anticipated from the small size of their class. The Freshmen, though capably coached by Miss Culin, were so new at the game, and had such a large number of ambitious players to choose from, that they hardly settled down to teamplay before the season was over.

Five games won out of five games played forms as good a percentage as any team could possibly hope for. And five hard games they were, too, with each match seeming to show a faster brand of play than the one before. The teams played were far from being easy prey, too, — Trenton Y. W. C. A., for instance, having won nine straight games before it struck Swarthmore. Swarthmore ' s own alumnae, composed chiefly of ' Varsity stars for the last two years, gave our champion team its closest escape from a marred record. That game ended in an extra-period victory for Swarth- more, after the graduate team had been in the lead throughout almost the entire time. Any account of this year ' s basketball would be incomplete without reference to the Captain, Catherine Wright. Although in poor health throughout the year, she went into the sport with a determination and a skill that made her unbeatable at her position of forward, while as a captain, — her team ' s record is an ex- ample of her success in leadership. Any member of the team will testify that Dot Johnson at side-center was the factor that held them all together, while Esther Philips, who graduates this year after making the unusual record of having been on four different ' Varsity teams in college, was as outstanding and dependable in basketball as in all other sports, — which is no small praise. That the loss of these three Seniors will be hard- felt next year there can be no doubt, with two of this year ' s most dependable substitutes, Virginia Postlethwaite and Edith Mendenhall, also going " , but there remains a nucleus of three strong players from this year — Mary Vernam, Frances Williams, and Dorothy Roller, around which to build up the 1918-19 combination.

" ' NATIONALISM OVERDONE ' Professor Nay Blames War on Inflaming Minds of School Children Prof. Paul Nay. of Swarthmore. told the First-day .school conference class at its meet- ing in the Friends " Meeting House, Fifteenth and Race streets, yesterday that national- ism as taught to the schoolchildren of Eu- rope for a generation was one of the chief causes of the war. " in. the French and English schools pa- triotism has been emphasized. " Professor Nay told the Friends. " .Since 1870 the French have taught their- schoolchildren that the Germans are thieves that they ' Stole Alsace and Lorraine, and it is France ' s first duty to regain these provinces. " fti Germany they have glorified everything German. The schoolchildren were taught to laud the Fatherland and this meant lauding the ' Kaiser. The Kaiser was their bond of unity. As a result the German people have come to link the Fatherland with the Kaiser as inseparable things. " They have been taught to look down upon everything that is not German. Thev have been taught that Germany never has fought wars of aggresHicn. This Is why it is so difficult to get the Germans to understand the American viewpoint in this war.

Two Seventy-one tm: Malct ©FM9 Student ' s U ' fartdbook ( .Alias .freshman 3Mble) Dedicated to the Young Women of the Class of 1922 (Editor ' s Note: Owing to the fact that the Women ' s Student Govern- ment Association has purchased two Liberty Bonds, it finds itself rather strapped for funds, and so has accepted the hospitable offer of the Halcyon to publish its annual welcoming words of guidance and information to next year ' s Freshman class in these pages, instead of going to the expense of pub- lishing its usual little red volume.) A. FORM OF GOVERNMENT We do not have Student, Faculty-, or Board Government; we have Co- educational Government. The authority rests in the end with Isaac H. Clothier, but he delegates powers to Miss Lukens. Miss Lukens delegates powers to the President. The President delegates powers to Miss Brierly, and Miss Brierly gives the students just enough to be good for them. There is no such thing as 100% pure Student Government; it is sufficiently adulter- ated by the time it reaches the average individual. Our purpose is to keep everyone satisfied by letting them think they are boss. B. RULES AND REGULATIONS 1. Quiet. Lectures must not be disturbed by shrieking, cat-calls, breaking of win- dows, transoms, furniture, or electric light bulbs; throwing of crockery or persons down the elevator shafts, or other unladylike noises. At thirty-one minutes and twelve seconds after seven P. M. absolute quiet must he maintained, for the watchman needs to sleep. Quiet on Sundays is also necessary in order that Miss Lukens may read her Bible, and to allow morning-after-the-night-before feelings to be slept off. During Noisy Hour, a premium is placed on loud noise, undue rough- house, and messing of kitchens. 2. Social Intercourse. When leaving for a date, affix your signature to the confession book. When returning, check up, and add where you went, what you did, and who you were with. Penalty — two bits. If you have it so bad that you will arise before breakfast to play tennis with him, then go to it. Tzvo Seventy-tzvo NOTCLAM All young women have the privilege of going to the Tea-Room with men, provided that it is always Dutch Treat, and that they return in time for Col- lection. Walking, driving, or entertaining in Somerville Parlor with outside men is O. K. However, similar intercourse with males of such low morale as college men means Farewell Forever. Xever think of condescending to speak to a college man in the halls, on the college grounds, or in the village. If a college man picks up your pencil in the class room, you are forbidden to thank him. College men who enter Somerville Parlor will be put on the Dean ' s Black List. 3. Spring Privileges. After the passing of the vernal equinox, couples least able to withstand the call of spring may stroll upon the territory confined within a line run- ning southwest from Parrish Hall, passing three feet from the eighth maple tree west of the Asphaltum, forming ' at the sun dial an angle of ninety-five de- grees, crossing- just below the bottom step of the set of steps nearest the station, running parallel to the Library walk, forming an angle of seventy-five degrees at the Library. Running- one foot from the East Campus box-bushes, touching the steps of Somerville Hall, and running thence directly to the east entrance of Parrish Hall. Those taking advantage of this privilege, and exercising within aforesaid well-defined boundaries, must beat a snappy retreat when the funeral bell puts an end to their joy, and must make a bee-line for the Dean ' s protecting- skirts. 4. Functions. Young women will not be expected to attend social function held at Lamb ' s Tavern, the Eagle, the L ' Aiglon, the Xew Bingham, or the AYash- ington Hotel of Chester. Young women, when in company with college men, shall not chew chew- ing-gum either at a function or in going to or returning from a function. C. FIRE REGULATIONS r. Always lock ydur door at night so the Fire Captain can ' t disturb you. 2. Take opium before retiring so the noisy fire bell will never arouse you from your slumbers. 3. Upon the ringing of the fire signal, each girl shall : fa) Hum a tune to herself, so that she cannot tell which hall the bell is trying to signify. (b) Arise. (c) Light the candle in her room. Two Seventy-three TH1 JHIalcy© ' ©FE9H9 ask (d) Strija her bed, throwing bed-clothes and mattress out of window. (e) Empty the contents of bureau drawers and washstand into her knit- ting bag. (f) Don hat and shoes. (g) Take her hose in one hand, and her pumps in the other. 4. Sit upon the transom as a signal to the captain that you are ready. 5. It is not considered good form to let the captain hear you saying anything worse than " Oh piffle ! " 6. This is considered a good time to practice using the large fire-hoses in the halls. 7. Upon answering to her name in roll-call, each girl shall speak slowly and distinctly, giving her home address and major subject. 8. As soon as the fire is under control, each girl shall slide quickly and in single file up the banisters, without stopping to converse with the Watchman. D. ABSENCE REGULATIONS 1. All absences not allowed shall be disallowed. 2. In dealing with offenders, the Absence Committee is empowered to go to any lengths not contrary to the laws of the State of Pennsylvania or the Freshman Hazing Code. 3. Provided, however, that such credit penalty shall not exceed the ratio of the number of times absent from second-hour classes to the number of times late to breakfast, divided by the square root of the sum total of Ducky ' s speeches in Collection plus the annual income of the average Swarthmore student, all raised to the fourth power of the number of Seniors with straight A averages. 4. Each minute missed immediately before or after a vacation means that all future vacations for the year shall be omitted, and that the use of the Library and the Meeting House shall be denied to the guilty student for thirteen days for each said minute. 5. Each student may obtain a general idea of the number of absences to be allowed him each semester by adding up the letters in his name, and divid- ing bv his room number. 6. Training in the course in Narrative Writing is advised for the effi- cient framing of excuses. All those which, by their literary style, appeal to the Chairman of the Committee, will be allowed. Tivo Seventy-four TCILAH 7. Any student breaking his leg or otherwise inconveniencing himself while on his way to class should send in a written application for absence seven days in advance. 8. All students are given the privilege of paying two dollars apiece for the pleasure of being ill at the time an examination is proffered. 9. Any criticism of the statements or actions of the Absence Committee is punishable by a writ of Habeas Corpus. E.

Most Hooveristic is our ration We save our butter with elation So why not seek for an occasion To commercialize our education? The Halcyon staff has found a way To earn more money every day Both at our work and at our play Which now we faithfully portray. Because we believe it is our mission To help to better your condition, This is our sole and one ambition (Of course you know we are not fishin ' ) And with our plan we ' re so obsessed That we all think it is the best. This, then is what we would suggest Why not turn close-fisted misers And entertain our advertisers ? Let them loose in all directions, In classes, meeting and collection. Let them animate our meals With their most instructive spiels. It will create a pleasant stir, And we can charge them so much per. If our plan is but begun Here is how a da} ' would run. Arising when the night is o ' er The student finds beneath his door A printed hand-bill, maybe more To warn him how his teeth will sro Two Seventy-eight TCLAH jr } If he does not use pebecco. Or tell him he should always own A little fairy in his home. Or porous-knjt ' s the only way To maintain health from day to day, Or " let us help you to reduce, " Or " joy attends its daily use. " And once he ' s seated in Collection He starts the hymn with predelection : " Hark! the herald angels sing Beecham ' s pills are just the thing. Peace on earth and mercy mild Two for man and one for child. " Then the Dean reads from the Bible (We trust you will not call this libel) How grape-nuts gav e such strength to Sampson Or Elijah ' s car had Macbeth ' s lamps on. Or Vic regales us with a lecture On pains and ailments that affect you. And how he ' s glad to let us in To buy his patent medicine, And how he ' s glad to have our chink For chocolate or fancy drink. And then to get more customers He hands the faculty cigars. Or maybe smiling Mrs. Booth Is there, and vows it is the truth That best of chefs most celebrated Her waffles never duplicated, And her fried chickens always rated As best of all she ' s heard it stated For which occasion for renown We charge them each five dollars down. Departing from this sweet persuasion The student joins in the invasion Of the post office, which occasion Nets him some dozen printed ads Tivo Seventy-nine TIKI] Malcto From local traders, college grads Reminding him of latest fads " Come see the latest thing in socks " Or " send two cents for sample box. " He reads them all thru ' second class And only hears the very last Waking to hear the Prof, advise " Use Waterman ' s if you ' d be wise. At lunch he hears this notice rare " Why dine on odious college fare Get a girl and your checkbook And come down to the Ingleneuk. " And when he goes forth for a walk The asphalt ' s full of words of chalk Ornately garnished, broad and flat, Suggesting this, advising that And while he muses on these places The runners of cross-country races Come panting by, each runner daft With brilliant posters fore and aft. So thru ' the day at intervals Some notice to his mind recalls Why to get this, why long for that. Why to get socks, a new straw hat, An inkwell or a baseball bat. When to his bed at last he creeps He hears an echo e ' er he sleeps. It is the watchman softly wheezin ' " Why not try Postum? There ' s a reason. So here ' s the plan we ' ve advocated Very plain and clearly stated. We hope it won ' t be under rated Or by some foolish tongues berated. And we ' d be proud and much elated If you ' d do as we ' ve advocated And if you ' re not pleased, once begun, The joke is on the Halcyon. Two Eighty NOTCJLAH J3L KHar? APRIL Mon. 2.

A New Rose Species — the Most Floriferous Perfectly Hardy, Bright Yellow Rose " HUGONIS " BLOOMS TEN DAYS EARLIER THAN ANY OTHER ROSE Mrs. Dr. W. Van Fleet. Washington. D. C. spring 1917. said to our President. Robert Pyle: " We had Hugonis in bloom during the last snowstorm, and I never saw a more beautiful sight. " We are constantly on the lookout for new good Roses, and we believe we were the first Rose growers in this country to recognize the value of Hugonis. Our original stock was secured by Mr. Pyle in 191 1, when on a visit to England, and came direct from stock raised from seed from North Central China. Mr. E. H. Wilson, of the Arnold Arboretum, describes Hugonis as follows: " It is an upright-growing shrub 6 to 8 feet tall, and more in diame- ter, with slender and spreading branches. The single, fragrant flowers, each about lY 2 inches across, are produced all along the branches, and so freely are they borne that the branches become yard-long sprays of soft yellow. ' 1 Hugonis is indeed the herald of Roses, and you will find it offered in three sizes, with almost four hundred other choice varieties in our 1918 Spring Floral Guide which we will be glad to send free on request. Write for it today. SPECIAL OFFER — If you mention " The 1919 Halcyon " when order- ing $5 worth of " Hugonis " Roses, we will present you with a copy of our 121-page book, " HOW TO GROW ROSES.

In street parades they used to pass the offices of the Insurance Com- pany of North America back in 1792. In that. year, Kentucky, the fif- teenth state came into the Union. It was in Kentucky, a few years later, that the first fire insurance agent to do business in America received his appointment — and the North America was the Company he represented. And during the 125 vears that have since passed into history, the North America has been rendering a complete service to property own- ers on land and sea without a single interruption.
