- 0 COSMO - FACTS FOR PROGRESSIVE MINDS We feel that at this point it is fitting and proper that we, the class of 1916, make a few remarks and say a few things which, although the school at large may feel deep¬ ly grieved, nevertheless are of such a nature that they must be said in order that the school may realize her grave situation and fortify herself against her impending ca¬ lamity. Do you realize, Fellow Taylorites, that soon the esteemed members of the illus¬ trious class of 1916 will no longer be seen parading up and down the boulevards of the campus, monopolizing the tennis courts or heroically bearing the brunt of the chapel talks by the sacrificial occupation of the front seats? No more shall we tread the halls and walks of our beloved institution, gratuitously inspiring the Freshmen by our attainments, counciling the Sophomores from the effervescent stock of our knowl¬ edge and teaching by word and precept the Juniors, who owe so much to us. In short, when the benediction has been pronounced in Shreiner Auditorium, Wednesday morn¬ ing, June the fourteenth, and the exalted and magnanimous class of 1916 is number¬ ed with the Alumni, and when the incoming trains to Upland next fall fail to bring back to a needy school such as will grad¬ uate June the fourteenth, 1916, then will the school begin to realize wlvat a treasure it has lost. We thought we would miss the class of 1915 and we did; but missing a class is far different from not being able to get along without it. Our heart goes out in great and silent sympathy when we contemplate the awful prospect. How, for example, are you going to get along without the undowithoutable J. D. Henry Druschei, who has so zealously kept the Echo out of debt and made possible the publication of the translucent sheet upon which I pen this eulogy of his departing spirit! An appropriation for Taylor will surely he assured when “Doc” goes to the State legislature. It is with deep sorrow that I acquaint you of the departure of Miss Ethel L. Ma buce, the smiling co-ed from Missouri. Not only has she been of service to the school, but who knows how many of us might have fallen by the wayside had she not been of special service to us through her official position as assistant registrar? We must not and the school cannot for¬ get our abstemous president, Mr. Vere Walford Abbey. He has been with us since 1910 and during all that time he has been actively engaged in school work in all its departments, including the herding of alarm clocks. When all the papers of the coun¬ try begin with one accord to chant the praises of this the world’s greatest bari¬ tone, then will Taylor realize what a treas¬ ure she has lost. It is with veneration that I speak of George Alfred Snider. Untold are his serv¬ ices to the school and the community in general and the Thalonian Literary Socie¬ ty and the M. E church in particular. He has been a loyal Taylorite for eight years and each golden hour is bedecked with en- wreathed smiles. Next comes Frank S. Young. That is he comes next in this article, but in real life he comes next to no one. Beside being a noted physicist, astronomer and chemist, “Brig” is an expert paper hanger, electri¬ cian and general utility man. Can it he that Taylor is allowing to pass out so thoughtlessly one who has meant so much to the general prosperity of the school? There are at least a few Taylorites who appreciate the worth of the Misses Edna Bennett, Marguerite Bugher, Anna Belle Guy, Lulu Rupert and Helen Raymonde. It is to these few we make an earnest ap¬ peal to do all in their power to bring back the aforementioned co-eds for a special S. P. course. It is useless for me to dwell upon the numerous merits of this quintet. You know it all and it is up to you to ful¬ fil your obligations to the institution which you profess to love. “Act, act in the liv¬ ing present.” Stuart M. Stokes and Owen B. Brubaker are men of such mental capacity as Taylor can not hope to have in her hails again for many a long year to come. In exactly two years by the sun dial in front of their room as Sickler, they have been able to grasp all that Taylor has for them. Both are nice shy, modest, little boys who receive well de¬ served praise from all who know them best. How can a depleted school, such as will be found south of Upland in the fall, sus¬ tain the loss of Opper the orator, Nyse- wander the debater, Lee Tan Piew the orien¬ tal artist, S. N. Umphrey the noted educa¬ tor, and Tressler the missionary lecturer? Since it is impossible for us to retain these gentlemen we wish them success in their life work. Messrs. Opper, Tressler and Lee intend to go to India, Africa and China as missionaries, while Umphrey and Nyce- wander have been called to the ministry in the home land. Before my feelings completely overcome me I must mention the Misses Spalding, Demaree and Fales, When these names ap¬ pear in all the educational periodicals and educators everywhere are lavish with their praises of the remarkable success of these distinguished pedagogues, then will Tay¬ lorites realize what an opportunity they have missed. Now, fellow students, as you gaze upon the pictures of the stately class of 1916, how many of you would dream that this is the same class which in the fall of 1912 en¬ tered Taylor University? Then they were merely a heterogenous bunch of boys and girls who were unsurpassed in their man¬ ifestations of vociferousne ss, incompre¬ hensibility, unfathomed stuoidity and un¬ conceivable insensibility. Now after four years of incessant pursuit of knowledge on their part and untiring effort on the part of the faculty, it is possible for spectators to feast their eves unon the most cultured, refined and astute band of young men, and women it has ever been the privilege of Taylor Universitv to send out to the wait¬ ing millions of the world.
