The catalogue which shall chronicle the present year and announce the next will have on its title page, " Seventv-Ninth Annual Announcement. " The history of the college dates its beginning with the Fort Wayne Female College in 1S46. This, uniting with a Collegiate In.stitute of Fort Wayne in 18. 2, assumed the name of Fort AVayne Methodist Episcopal College. A ' hen Bishop Taylor, " the a]:)ostle to the world " , reached the high tide of his well deserved influence, in the year 1890, the authori- ties at Fort A ' ayne rededicated the school as Taylor University. Shortly after that it was moved from the city of Fort A ' ayne to its ])resent cam])us, and the Administration Building now in use, was erected. The corner stone was laid by Bishop Taylor and Dr. Thaddeus C. Reade, the saintly man who was then President of the institution, whose picture hangs over the college platform along with that of Bishop Taylor, and whose grave is on the campus of the college for which he gave his earthly possessions and his life. While Taylor has always been Methodist in its afiiliation, it has jjeen strong in its interdenominational service and has been a])proved by the interdenomina- tional movements for the promotion of holiness and evangelism as their patron- izing college. The attitude and spirit of the school may be surmised from the fact that about midway in its history it selected such a man as William Taylor for its patron saint. He symbolized several things which were characteristics of the institution. It was a school that deferred to the laity and the plain people. It believed in personal salvation and revivals and lived up to its belief. It stood for a safe and sane presentation of the fullness of the Gospel without frills or side tracks. It stood for a constructive contention for the faith without strife. In other words it defended the Gospel by preaching it. It stood for an evange- listic world movement, for an education that trained its students to feel that " anywhere with Jesus will be home, sweet home. " The Taylor of William Taylor ' s day and Thaddeus Keade ' s day is the Taylor of today, unmoved by the modernizing tendencies and the unbelief that has crept into the system of modern education. By this we do not mean to sa - that Taj ' lor has shut her doors against progress. She is a student of every new movement, method, or theory of any consequence in the life of the world, and she keeps step with the best that is in modern education. The institution has proved that this can be done without neglecting or calling in question the time honored fundamentals of society and the recognized essentials of the Gospel as set forth in the New Testament. Taylor now has more than three score classes that have graduated from college. They have entered all the worthy pursuits of our own land and have gone to all the continents of the world. Included in the number were men who have filled the highest offices in the nation, a number of nationally known edu- cators, preachers and business men. And so the " character mill " continues to grind. Page Seventeen BISHOP lUlLLlAM TAIJLOR Page Eighteen " Bishop lUillidm Tdi lor It was a high day in his Hfe, and an epochal day in the history of this in- stitution, when th e school took William Taylor ' s name. This occurred while the institution was yet in Fort Wayne, but under the presidency of Dr. Thaddeus C. Reade. Under Dr. Reade, with IJishop Taylor ' s co-operation, the school was moved to its present campus. The devout Bishop carried this institution upon his heart to the last hour of his life. It is therefore fitting that we should make some note of his life, a complete volume of which is now being written by the President of Taylor University. The high days in I ' ishop Taylor ' s biography are as follows: l!orn, Alay 2, 1821 ; Received into the family of God and licensed to exhort, 1841 ; licensed to preach, 1842 ; admitted to full connection in the Baltimore Conference, 184 . ; entered California, 1849; entered his great evangelistic campaign in the east and the middle west and Canada, 1837 ; entered his Australian campaign, 1862 ; entered his first African campaign. South Afri ca, 1866; entered mission to India, 1870; entered South America, 1877; elected Bishop of Africa, 1884; passed to his heavenly reward. May 19, 1902. Bishop Taylor was of Scotch Irish stock, originating in the hills of ir- ginia. l!oth he and his father, of Presbyterian training, had a wonderful con- version in the Methodist camp meetings and his ministry took on the revivalistic type from the beginning. Though only twenty-eight years old when he entered California, his seven years of experience there made him a settled man known as Father Taylor. ' lien a peculiar providence brought him back to the old States for five years of evangelism, he had had a training and an adventure that made him one of the most interesting and spectacular characters in the American nation. The historian, Ridpath, then only a college boy at Asbury College, now DePauw University, gives in later life the impression of William Taylor which he received in his boyhood days, and finds in his personality the type wdiich has influenced our better class of evangelism and reform for the last sixty years. An interesting feature of his life which we should not overlook was his connection with the founders of the National Association for the Promotion of Holiness, and the modest, intelligent and manly way in which he promoted the full message and testimony of the Gosjjel in all his writings and ministrations. William Taylor was apostolic in his missionary policies. His idea of self supporting missions was a bit revolutionary and not quite practical in the es- timation of some of his brethren ; but it illustrated the spirit of heroism in his ministry which bore fruit everywdiere. Indeed there was something contagious m the devotion and zeal and insurgent faith of William Taylor which abides in the spiritual centers that felt his ministry and which we trust will always be found on the campus of Taylor University. Page Nineteen Page Tweiifj Sdmmij Morris There was a man sent from God, and his name was not John, but Samuel Morris. He came from the west coast of Africa, where his father was a king among the Kru people. He came as a simple, unlettered negro boy to New York City; he came as one pitifully ignorant and yet as one marvelously wise. His ignorance consisted in not knowing the world, his wisdom consisted of his knowdedge and his explicit faith in God. Samuel Morris was a prince in his native land, he heard about God, he hungered and thirsted after righteousness and peace, he agonized and wrestled unceasingly with God, he prevailed, and became a prince in Israel. Through the words of a Spirit filled missionary, Samuel Morris heard about the Holy Ghost ; his interest became a passion ; his passion led him across the Atlantic to New York City, where he was told that there was a certain Stephen Merritt who could instruct him more perfectly concerning ' the promise of the Father. ' This African prince was one of those, ' who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. " The captain and the crew that brought him to New York were converted. He spoke in a mission in New York City and lo ! the altar was full with repentant souls. Directed by friends he came to Taylor University where he " wrought righteous- ness and obtained the promises. " The simplicity of Samuel Morris ' s faith was beautiful. His Father was his constant companion, and his life overflowed with the rivers of living water. Taylor University can never cease to honor and love this African boy, who brought with him the very touch of Christ. Like Enoch he walked with God and was not, for God took him ; and to those who saw him go, it seemed that as another Elijah, he be.stowed a double portion of his spirit upon the school. Beloved by his friends, and with his heart set upon returning to his native land, it seemed hard to have his pure, brave life cut short, but surelv it was because God loved him so dearly and wanted " Sammy " Home. And the spirit of Samuel Morris; the spirit of faith, of love, and of holi- ness, still prevails in the school he loved. Like a mantle the spirit of " Sammy " Morris rests upon us, and he being dead yet liveth. There was a man sent from God and he came from the west coast of Africa and his name was Samuel Morris. Page Twenty-one Commencement Spedkers for June, 1926 As the annual goes to press the President announces the probabihty that Bishop William F. Oldham will be the baccalaureate preacher and that Judge Elbert H. Gary will l)e the commencement speaker in the coming season. An- ticipating " the visit of these honored leaders in religion and industry we would add to the completeness of our Gem by giving an introductory sketch of each. I ' dSHOI ' WlLLfAM F. (JlDHAM Uishop Oldham, born in ISangalore, India, December 1. . IS. 4, has l een a bishop twice. He was elected Missionary Bishoj) for Southern Asia by the General Conference of 1894. He withdrew from that office in 1912 to serve as a Corresponding Secretary for the Board of Foreign Missions, but was eleected a regular iMshop or general superintendent at the General Conference of 1916. An important fact about Bishop Oldham in the estimation of Taylor Uni- versity is that he is a spiritual son of Bishop William Taylor, ha -ing been con- verted under the ministry of the illustrious namesake of our institution. The fond friendship of P)isho]) Ta} ' lor for this school seems to carr ' in tlie heart of Bishop Oldham. l ishop Oldham was educated in Allegheny College and the ' i ' heological School of Boston University. His degrees of D.D. and LL.D. were conferred by Allegheny College. He was the founder of the Anglo-Chinese School at Singapore, one of the great schools of the East now having an average enroll- ment of 1875. In the good old days that marked the closing of the Nineteenth Century. Dr. Oldham rendered some valuable service as professor of Missions and Comparative Religions in Ohio W ' esleyan University. His experience in church work has been varied. In his younger days he rendered some vears of pastoral service in the United States, but in the larger field he has been felt as a minister and a statesman in the affairs of the church on almost everv mission field. He is a world traveler, a lover of humanity, and a man of strong faith in God. His present mission field is the continent of South America over which he is the ])residing official for the Methodi.st Episcopal Church. ji ' DCE Elbkrt H. G. rv judge Elbert H. (jary is well known in the industrial world. The articles in Who ' s Who does the unic|ue thing of withholding the year in which Judge Gary was born, but we are told that he was born on his father ' s farm near Wheaton, Illinois. He is one of the many successful men who got their start in the country. Judge Gary is a man of clean life and high moral ideals, a lover of young men, and an exemplary American citizen. His high position as head of the United States Steel Corporation has l)rought him into many industrial discussions and made it necessary for him to grapple with vast economic problems which in his young manhood were not settled and which today are only partially settled. He has always been a fair and dispas- sionate student of the issues between capital and labor ; and, while some years ago he was condemned by lalior leaders because of his lack of sympathy with the eight hour day, we think this should not be construed as a lack of sympathy for plain and struggling humanity. There are two classes of men who have to work all the hours that they are not asleep. Those are farmers and adminis- trative officers in organizations and institutions. Judge Gary started out as a farmer and climaxed as an administrative officer. He has therefore known nothing but long hours of labor for himself. Judge Gary is a well educated man with splendid legal training. He was educated in the University of Chicago, McKendree College and Lafayette Col- lege. He holds degrees also from Lincoln Memorial University, Trinity College, Syracuse University, and the University of Pittsburgh. Page Twenty-two Acting President .... Burt IP, Ai res Secretarij .....

At the following commencement, June, 1924, the Charter of Taylor University was so revised as to make over to the Legal Hundred the custodianship of all the pro])erty and business affairs of the institution. The old charter was not annulled but was so revised as to make the Board of Trustees of Taylor University identical in number with the Hoard of Directors of the Legal Hundred and to provide that election on the Board of Directors should constitute election on the Board of Trustees of the institution. It was further provided that the officers of the Board of Directors and of the Board of Trustees should be identical, with the one exception that the President of the Legal Hundred should l)e President of the Board of Trustees. At the time of the organization of the Legal Hundred, Tavlor L ' niversitv was held jointly Ijy a Board of Trustees and a corporation of the Alumni. The Legal Hundred has been commended by some of the best authorities as an unsurpassed organization in its efficiency to conduct a college and per- petuate its ideals. Not only does this organization begin right, with carefully selected men and women ; but these are safeguarded in the discharge of their duty by a charter that is clear, safe, strong, and moderate. The organization gains a point over the average college board in the fact that its members are elected for life and never superannuated on account of old age. Taylor is strong in deferring to the counsel of old men. Page Twenty-three John Paul. D.D. } ' resident Page Twenty-four AIoNROE A ' avhingek, IJ.D., D.L).

" We had not lieen on the campus two weeks before we had organized and had planned a freshman picnic. Since that time we have had the distinction of being the first class to have an outing each of the four years of our existence. Hut alas! ( )t!r freshman picnic did not occur on the day for which it was planned. ( )n that morning the ' 26 banner proudlv waved at the tup ()f the fiagpole — until the Sophomores sjMed it. They at once reported our bold actions to the Dean, who, for ])unishment, for- bade us to hold our picnic that day. Our .sophomore year was also full of action. Many an afternoon found us going toward the college woods witli a chain of tin cujis swinging over ( ur shoulders and a bag of launs lietween us. When we were Juniors we organized a plan to foster class spirit among each class. We drew up a code of rules for treatment of Seni( rs which was adopted wholeheartediv bv the student body. Also, we requested that each class wear certain symbols, and a few weeks before Commencement, at an impressive ser- vice by a huge bonfire, each class ])assed its .symbol down to the class below, the Freshmen burning their green caps and the Seniors donning their caps and gowns. This vear has been the best of all for originalit -. )m ' class initiated " Senior Sneak Day, " on which, to the bewilderment of faculty and students, we left our books and classes for one whole day and took an interesting trip to Indianapolis. In the winter term we began a series of " Parlor Nights. " Every other Wednesday night the parlor was given over exclusively to the Seniors for a social hour together. Two ]:)ublic entertainments ha e been presented, the proceeds of which have gone toward our gift to the school. However, our class has ncit Iieen noted only for good times. The class prayer meetings we have held account for much of our class si)irit. Alany of ( " )in " number are going into special Christian service and others into educational work ' . Where scholarship is concerned our class has also been a leader. A member of ( ur class has won the scholarshij) for three ' ears, six members have been inter-collegiate debaters, and others have won jirizes in various Fine Art Contests. Of the original Fresliman Class of ' 26 fifteen are still with the class. Each year old members have dropped out and new members have been added, but the spirit of the class remains the same. We know that even after we have left the halls of oiu " Alma Mater, the ties bet ' een the members of our class will never be broken. Page Fifty-three J{ Letter to Jane lirownsville.

Some of our number represent the States bordering the bright Atlantic ; others, the North and Central regions ; others, the vast j lains of the Middle-west, and the thriving sections of the South. We represent also the countries of Malaysia, India, Peru. Canada and The Philippines. Three years of glad co-operation brought us together into one brotherhood which in itself, is a lasting memory. Now we can look back at those days, joy- ful with the thought that our trail was dotted with successes and ha]i]n ' exper- iences. r ut that is not our peaceful retreat. Our hopes do not rest there, and neither do our dreams. We are very thankful that the " Author of Light " gave us a grander ' ision of service, — a vision that is deep and far-reaching. As Juniors, we are aware of the growing responsibilities that lie Ijefore us. We are coming to realize more and more the graceful promise of the calm advancing years. As a class, we heartily acquiesce with the young bard, Rizal, who seeing the smiling future of his country, uttered one of the most eloquent apostrophies to an ardent youth : " Hold high thy brozi.

Earl AllKn President Stanley Tippett ice-President Dorothy Atkinson SecretarY-Treasurer Ofiicers of the Qood Ship " Class 1928 " Just as the great U. S. liner " President Roosevelt " could not have saved the lives of men in the sinking British freighter " Antinoe " had it not been for the daring and heroism of the officers and crew of the U. S. liner, under the command of Captain Fried, so the goodship " Class 1928 " could not have come to a suc- cessful termination of her second voyage across " the vast ocean of college life " were it not for the guidance and leadership of those who faithfully and efficienth- manned her course, under the captaincy of President Earl Allen. Early in September, President Allen drew up the Constitution of the Class of 1928. It was no small achievement on his i)art to have constructed and put across his famous " Magna Charta, " when we recall the innumeral)le obstacles always hindering such a task. Contrary to Caesar ' s maxim that he would rather be the first man in a village than the second man in Rome, Stanley Tippett, ever ready to answer the call to service, ascended the chair of the Sophomore Vice-Presidency. In the person of Miss Dorothy Atkinson, our capable Secretary-Treasurer, the financial and secretarial affairs of the Class found a most efficient and sound administration. The last office, but not the least, that of the Chaplain, has been entrusted to Miss Frances Thomas. In fact, it is the office to which may be attributed the spiritual growth of our Class. We, the members of the " Crew of l ' )28, " rejoice o -er the fact that we did not make any mistake in choosing our officers this year. We shall in time forget Newton ' s law of motion, the molecular theory, the nebular hypothesis, Dante ' s Inferno, et cetera, but the memorv of them who guided the course of our " good- ship " will stay. Pase Fifty-eight Sophomore Ckss The latter part of September, 1925, saw Taylor students making their wav from every direction to the little town in Indiana which they call Upland. For most of the class of 1928, this journey Taylor-ward was a veritable homecoming. One year at Taylor had made the Sophomores of ' 26 " at home " with Taylor ' s ideals and traditions. To them Taylor is indeed a fostering mother, and to the college they are cherished sons and daughters. Several new students identified themselves as Sophomores, but the process of assimilating them into the class was short. When young people are bound together with bonds of Christian brotherhood, their common desire for spiritual attainment makes co-operation easy. It was a group of Christian classmates who worked together during the year for a greater class and a better college. Every member who actively par- ticipated in this constructive program can testify to the joy of real service. Throughout the year the Sophomores have had weekly fellowship meetings on Tuesday morning. The chaplains, Miss Frances Thomas and Mr. Charles Wideman, have been of much inspirational help in these meetings and all who have attended have felt a strengthening of their spiritual lives. As practically every member of the class of ' 28 is a true follower of the Christ, he regards his Sophomore year at Taylor University as another link in his chain of preparation for better ser ing his Christ in the world at large. Pag-e Fifty-niiK Walter Hopkins, Pres. Tttklma Williams, Sec ' y. Bertha Pollitt, A ' ice Pres. Wa ne York, Treas. Freshman Class Officers The Freshman Class this year is the " largest and best " class that has ever entered Taylor. From the first of the school year this group has been prominent in all collegiate activities and it has shown its ability to assume leadership in the tasks which confront the entire student body. Walter Hopkins was chosen to lead the class, and as president, proved him- self a capable leader in organization and stimulation of class spirit. It was he who began many of the undertakings that resulted in the recognition of the talents included in this group. Before the Spring term, however, Mr. Hopkins was forced to resign and leave school because of his physical condition and pressing duties at home. To Lawrence Boyll the duties of President were transferred by will of the class. Under his experienced leadership the year was finished successfully. The office of A ' ice-President was filled by Miss Bertha Pollitt who supported all activities with great fervor. Miss Thelma AA ' illiams performed the manifold duties of the Secretary in a competent and commendable manner. Her experience enabled her to assist the President greatly in many of the problems with which all such organizations are forced to deal in their first 3 ' ear. The Treasurer was Wayne York. This young man demonstrated his ability to make the best of a difficult task and much of the success which the class gained was a direct result of his eft ' orts in business management. It was he who fur- nished the " pep " in all activities. As a class we intend to push onward and upward, and maintain the true " Taylor Spirit. " Page Sixty Freshman Class T ulor University this year welcomed into her halls of learning the largest class i n her history — the Class of ' 29. This Class organized, and the principles for which it stood were soon an- nounced. The officers of the class were temporarily elected and in a short time were re-elected for the year. Vet without a code of laws, the Class was not ready to begin its career. In a short time the Constitution was adojited and the Class set sail for the year ' 29. I ' he purpose or object of the organization as stated in the second article of the Constitution is " to promote and to develop a Christian Class s]iirit, and to uphold the standards of our University. " The desire of the Class to be spiritual has been .shown specihcally in its praver meeting which has occurred in the early morning, on the fifth day of every week. At this time all or many of the Freshmen met to pray, as a class, for a deeper Christian experience. The members of the Class have been upholding the standards of the Uni- versity not only by abiding by her rules, but also by applying themselves diligently to scholastic tasks. They have also been proving their ])owers and possibilities in many minor ways. With Jesus as pilot and Taylor ' s standards as laws, the ship of this class will certainly and safely reach the harbor in the year of ' 29.

These students fall into dififerent groups, — those taking sub- freshman work and those specializing in music. 2rt, or domestic science. Some students come as the result of a definite call from God to prepare themselves for greater service, while others come to fit themselves for profes- sions, whether definitely called or not. Some of these students have this year finished the requirements necessary to place themselves as active members of the Freshman class of next year, and hence, correspond to the old classification of Senior Academy students. Although Taylor has discontinued her Academy work, these deserve recognition as students who have filled the demands for college entrance, and who will next year prove an important factor in the advancement of their class. Some of them have spent previous ) ' ears in Tavlor, while a number have entered her hallowed halls for the first time, this year. But all have been welded into that strong family or- ganization, and have become well known as loyal students. And we, as a class, although not firmly organized, are ever ready to fall into line with the activities of Taylor, the school we love. Unitedly we raise our voices in admiration of our Alma Mater. Page Sixty-four Qospel Team Association Harold Ockknc.a. Pres. Mildred GEORCr:, Pres. Catherine Tower, Sec ' y. Carlton Sciiults, Treas. The Taylor University Gospel Team Organization furnishes an outlet for spiritual enthusiasm to the students. All who are interested in saving a lost world are eligible for this work. The students show great willingness and eager- ness to take this opportunity of proclaiming the full gospel of salvation and sanctification through the atoning blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and of wit- nessing for their Saviour. Every week-end four or five teams, with from four to eight students on each team, are sent to churches in neighboring towns and rural districts. This is not onlv a help to the churches, but also proves to be of great benefit to the students themselves. Many of those who are studying for the ministry gain their first practical experience in preaching through this work. It gives them some knowledge of how to deal with situations which they will be called upon to meet later in their ministry. The reports which the teams bring in from week to week are very favorable. There were fifteen victories one week, five the next, seven the next, fourteen the next, and so on. The Association held meetings in the Upland Methodist Church one Sunday this year, and twenty-four received definite victory. One week-end sixty souls found victory in meetings held by the gospel teams. " Thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. " Page Sixty-five o-WS. " C - 8»J«i.

Holiness League fall Pres., William Hawkes Sec ' y., Ddrothn ' Atkinson ]]■ ' inter Travis Purdy Dorothy Atkinson Spring Alva Beers Bertha Pollitt In the providence of God, the Holiness League has prospered this year in carrying on the work for the deepening of Spiritual life among the students of this University. Many souls have sought and definitely received the blessing of Sanctification or a clean heart in the weekly Friday night meeting. In general, the program which has been observed, has been to select speakers and singers who have actually experienced the " Second Blessing " themselves and are able to present it effectively to others. These have been drawn not only from outside sources such as, Paget Wilkes of London and Japan, but also from among the members of the faculty and student body. In fact, we have sought any one who seemed to be a channel of blessing. We believe this Society is a purifying fountain in this garden of culture, where youthful hearts may receive the magic power of God ' s purity before facing a sinful world. We not only desire to graduate with a diploma, but also with a clean heart. The chief aims of the Holiness League has been to spread scriptural holiness, to get people into a definite experience, to build theiu up in the most holy faith, and to develop the ethical side of their daily living. The atmosphere of the meetings has been no small factor in the accomplishment of these aims, which we Ijelieve to be God ' s will concerning man. Page Sixty-sist Fall Pres.. Mildred Radakkr Sec ' y., Gertrude WamslK ' i Prdi er Bdnd JV inter Mildred Radaker Florence Sherbourne Spring Frank Wells Evi;L N DURYEA It is because Taylor University believes that " Prayer Changes Things " that a number of her faculty and students meet in Society Hall every Sunday evening to lift up their hearts in prevailing prayer. Under the leading of the Holy Spirit these prayers often take the form of intercession, then again they take the form of praise for the blessings already enjoyed. But whether intercession or praise, God always gives victory. It is here Taylor learns to help lift the burden of a weary brother and to cast that burden upon Jesus of whom Peter wrote : " Cast all your care upon Him, for He careth for you. " Peter 5 :7. The influence of this praying group is felt, not only at Taylor or even just in America, but in the Orient and different parts of the world. Letters come from foreign missionaries as well as ministers in our own land requesting prayer of this band of praying people who wait upon God and seek His Holy will. Students bring their burdens to Prayer Band and find the members willing and anxious to help them pray through to victory. Messengers of God in the field, former students of Taylor send their requests to Prayer Band if they have a difficult work to do or are beginning revivals. Not only do students bring their burdens for others but bring personal burdens and many doubts have been settled through the united prayers of this organization. Answers to praver for the salvation of loved ones and definite healing have been reported. This organization is known by name to Taylor students and friends as the Prayer Band ; but by experience, it is known as one of the mountain peaks oi Taylor ' s spiritual life. Page Sixty-seven Ralph Hl ' nt, Pres. Walter RussKll, . Pres. Robert Clarke, Treas. Frank Lewts, Sec ' y. Ministeridl Association Preaching is to be regarded as preeminently a religious agency appointed by the Savior of the world as a means of rescuing men from sin and error, and teaching them the way of life and immortality. The Master Himself employed it in this distinctive character, and enjoined it upon all men who are willing to forsake SIN and receive the divine commission " to become fishers of men. " It is by means of this divinely appointed agency that God made foolish the wisdom of this world. " For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that be- lieve. " I Cor. 1, 20, 21. The supreme reason for the existence of the Ministerial Association at Taylor is to prepare each member to better fill his or her place as a good min- ister of Jesus Christ. The greatest problem of today, as of old, is SIN. There is but one remedy for SIN, and that is the all-availing BLOOD of an all-sufhcient CHRIST. There is but one supreme equipment of holy toil, and that is the baptism of the Holy Ghost. The Association aims not only to aid the other organizations of Taylor in the task of getting each member anointed, but also to help those anointed better to meet the many other duties and obligations of the ministry in addition to that of spreading scriptural holiness over these lands. This is being done by giving each member something to do under the wise supervision of helpful advisers and critics. The Lord is adding His blessing. Page Sixty-eight Uolunteer bdnd Clair Snell, Pres. Helen Nickel, V. Pres. Olive SpE[ciier_, Sec, Treas. There is something fascinating about the word " ' olunteer. " It suggests initiative, purpose, and heroic action. Every Christian Student Volunteer tes- tifies that it was the voluntary atonement of Christ which first urged him to offer his life as an expression of gratitude. The only compulsion which he feels is a divine compulsion to " go and tell " of the unspeakable love of Jesus. This year the school and the band were especially privileged to hear reports of " fields white unto harvest. " Inspiration, warning, encouragement came from many sources and ever the Volunteers endeavored to keep their hearts open to God ' s call, their minds receptive to truth and knowledge, their hands eager to help the needy, and their voices ready to witness of full salvation. Among the many desires which the members feel keenly are : that members of the band may really get to the foreign field spiritually and mentally armored for effective service ; that they may ignite others with a Christ-born missionary zeal ; that they may be used for evangelizing the world ; and that young people everywhere may know Taylor is missionary in spirit, in purpose, and in training, that those who feel called to missionary service should not fail to come here for helpful preparation. In due honor to our Saviour, and the missionary founder and intercessor for whom Taylor is named, we would ever be willing to be called and to be sent.

These men, despite their college courses, are in the majority of cases failures. Why? Because they cannot adjust them- ■ elves properly in this complex civilization in which we are living. It is to assi,st in developing the .social life that the literarv .societies are functioning. And if we can judge by the type of n.ien and women going out from Taylor, the societies are functioning adequatel}-. The Philalethean Literary Society, the younger of the two societies, is serving its purpose by presenting to the student a society in which he mav take an active part, and may train himself .so that he will be better fitted to take his place in the world. Opportunity is presented to use and develop all the latent talent the individual possesses, be that talent in music, oratory, expression, humor or athletics. The society, due to its large membership, has had a greater influence this year than it has had previously. With the definite purpose of doing the most good for the greatest number, the ])rogrammes of this vear have proved unus- ually .successful. If the .society gives to each of its members some ideal that will go with them through life, the Philalethean Literarv Societv will not have existed in vain. Page Seventy ' ' ! ' ' r T ' ' ' ?

IA LovK D(iK(iTll [errett SpriiKj l -a Beers W ' iNTFRKn Moon Since the corner stone of Taylor L ' niversity was laid in Ft. ' a ne. eightv years have added their story to the changing history of Time. And a significant part of those eighty years lias heen the creation and the growth of the Thal(inian Literary Society. There are still living. lo ai and enthusiastic " Thalos " ' who speak and re- memher the name Thalonian, as a most precious heritage of their college days. This is particularly true hecause our Society, first organized in Ft. Wayne, was for many years the sole guardian of the social culture and worthwhile develop- ment of Taylor ' s young people. The poet has sung, " A thing of heaut}- is a joy forever. " And joyous Thalonians have ever agreed with him. There is the beautiful spirit of healthy rivalry with our sister Society. There is the variety of talent, and art, and co-operation displayed in the presenting of bi-weekly programs. And there is the inspiring fellowship which blends into beautiful harmony, ever and forever Thalonian. When another eighty years .shall have recorded their number on the dial of Time, we do not doubt but that in the history of Taylor University the Thalonian Literary Society will have had its ever growing and ever beneficial part, and we almost envy, the young men and women who shall come marching- down the clearer and greater to-morrows of Taylor, wearing the ( )range and Black and having the honor of becoming " Thalo ' s. " Page Seventy-one The Echo In harmony with the rapid progress of the school in the last year, the Taylor University Echo has also taken a forward step. Taylor has always had a splen- did publication. Nevertheless there has always been room for improvement. With the hearty approval and endorsement of students, faculty and friends at the beginning of this year ( 1925- ' 26) the Echo changed from a sixteen page semi-monthly to a four page weekly. This change offered three outstanding advantages : more space ; earlier, more concise news ; and a better response on the part of advertisers and subscribers. At first some had misgivings, but under the direction of the editor, Dorwin V. Whitenack, the paper has enjoyed co- operation and success from every quarter. From the many words of praise and congratulations we are encouraged to believe that the Echo is making a very distinct contribution to Taylor University and to the Kingdom of God. Mr. Ed- gar C. Cox, of Detroit, a member of the Legal Hundred, has said that the Echo is the best college weekly of its kind in the United States. The purpose has been to truly represent the spirit and standards of Taylor, to give every phase of school life its due recognition, and to serve both our school and our patrons. Accordingly every week the E ho has appeared full of inter- esting up-to-date stories of general school events — sermons, chapel talks, parties, societies, clubs, religious organizations, athletic games, debates, and programs. To these were added editorials, jokes and personal news of students and faculty, alumni, and missionaries. The tone of the paper has been truly spiritual. It should be remembered that it has not been possible to publish a four page weekly during the school year without a great deal of expense and hours of sac- rificial labor on the part of the staff. It is hoped that the staff of next year may receive compensation in journalism credit. We hope that every year the Echo may improve as Taylor continues to grow and fulfill that larger place in spread- ing the Gospel to all people. Page Seventy-two Page Seventy-three 1i LM J ' - ' slf ' ' l The Qem StdJ To compile a book which gives a worthy representation of a year ' s life on any college campus, is a task which demands the ingenuity of the cleverest col- lege students. And this was the challenge which the Gem statt faced at the opening of the fall term of 1923. Hoiking that a maximum of industry might compensate a minimum of cleverness, the staff accepted the challenge. Vea. it attempted even more, for it became the purpose of the staff " to picture the history of ' J ' aylor from its origin in 1846, to its present position as the Greater Taylor of 1926. Realizing that the history is far more than a story of architectural achievements, the .staff has followed Tavlor men and women wherever the_ ' have gone in an attempt to disco ' er the " Taylor story " in their lives. Every member of the staff ' has given the utmost co-operation in the attempt to make the Gem of 1926 di.stinctly a Taylor book. To this end, the staff ' has not only made use of word-pictures of life at ' i ' axlor, but has attemi)ted in the i:)hotographic and art work to present some of the beaut}- sjxrts of Taylor ' s campus. If this Gem is interesting to Ta dor ' s friends, if it becomes a book of cher- ished memories to Taylor students, if it inspires in Taylor men and women wherever it goes a new love for their Alma Mater, the staff " will feel that their efforts liaA ' e been crowned with success. Page Seventy-fouv Page Seventy-five The Athletic Associdtion John Shilling, Pres. Evklyn Durvka, Sec ' y. Lawrence F.ovlle, Treas. Taylor University recognizes the threefold nature of the well rounded man, — the mental, the moral and the physical. It is in recognition of and for the de- velopment of the latter that Taylor has an athletic association. The Athletic Association was placed in full student control at the beginning of the school year of 1924-1925. The plan has proved successful in the two years of its operation. The Association, composed of practically the entire student body, has as its purpose the promotion of good, clean athletics and the improvement and upkeep of the equipment of the gymnasium and athletic fields. In the fulfillment of this purpose, the officers of the association feel they have a task as important as has any other organization of the school. Baseball, basketball, tennis and track — Taylor ' s four major sports — each has a manager who is responsible for that particular activity. This plan of con- ducting the association has been very successful. The baseball diamond has been improved, the track equipment has been added to, the tennis courts have been improved, and we have high hopes of a new gymnasium in the future. It is the wish of the association that Taylor ' s athletic development shall keep pace with, but not exceed to any appreciable degree, her development along other lines. If we can accomplish that aim, the Association will not have been formed in vain. Page Seventy-six The Quartettes The quartettes have become an institution in Taylor university. For the last two years a prize has been provided for the four who showed themselves most efficient in the estimation of the judges. This decision is rendered in the spring term after several batteries of good singers have made the welkin ring ' with their practice for a number of weeks. The prime object for encouraging this pleasant rivalry is to raise up and organize groups of young men and young women who can render acceptable service for the kingdom of Christ and carry an advertising value for the school. The history of quartette work in Taylor University contains some inter- esting pages. A number of the stalwart pastors and missionaries point back to the days when they went out from Taylor University to the churches and camp meetings as members of quartettes that had been formed during their college days. In the present scheme of rating the quartettes we are not supposed to get scientific results. Often a quartet that fails to win is quite as efficient as the one that wins. There is general satisfaction, however, because the plan of judging is very elaborate. The judges are in three groups, a group of artists, the regular faculty, and the audience. The artists and the faculty grade on a scale of 100, and the audience grades by a popular ballot. In the two years prior to this the winners have been girls. It is believed that the judges are not prejudiced in favor of the female voice, but there is a probability that if the girls " side continues to hold the banner there will be a prize offered for a sep- arate contest for the boys. Page Seventy-seven Studemt Churches «f _. 1 i„» ' ' i ,. ' _i " I ' j ■ ' _ A jfliiw. r th " ' -. y ' ' f " t! Tdi lor s Student Pdstors In some colleges the term, " Student Pastor ' " is not very well known, but at Taylor University such is not the case. In fact the student pastor at Taylor is a revered personage. Here, where we grow preachers, the student pastor is in his element. Because of the desire of the Conferences for full time pastors our number of students holding charges are not .so many as in past years, but the quality and ability of these now serving the church, in this capacity has not deteriorated in the least. Our student pastors are doing splendid work this year. All of them are witnessing a steady growth of spirituality and interest among their members. Their respective churches are hives of industry and accomplishment. Each student pastor has held a series of meetings and .souls have been brought to Christ in every effort of evangelization. The,se ministers have the advantage of using the Christian talent of the school in maintaining and creating interest in their churches. Quite often the pastors take a Gospel Team of preachers and singers to their charge for a week- end, which always proves a lilessing to the people and encouragement to the pastor. In several cases this year the student pastors obtained some of the fellow students to conduct their revival services. Without exception, these ser- vices proved of great blessing to the communit} ' . Our boys prove themselves to be capable pastors and winning evangelists. Page Seventy-eight Importdnce of a Sound Christian Theologi We regard as Soiimf the Cliristian ' riieology that emhraces the Evangehcal and Scriptural doctrines of God and of Man that are essential to an accurate and to an adequate understanding of redemption in Christ. Such a Theolog} ' is im])ortant in its bearing upon personal faith and per - sonal redemption. God does not require a profound insight into Christian Theology as a condition of personal salvation. Nevertheless, the doctrinal set- ting in which one receives the truth that leads to his regeneration may profoundly affect his conception of the meaning of salvation in Christ and his understanding of the obligations of Christian discipleship. Again one ' s coming by faith into his full inheritance in grace, subsequent to his regeneration, may depend upon the doctrinal content of the gospel under which he is nourished as a spiritual babe in the family of God. Such a Theology is an important factor in determining one ' s Christian character, and his fruitfulness and efficiency in Christian Service. It helps him to interpret the meaning of the life that is " hid with Christ in God. " Taylor University is demonstrating the ]:)Ower and importance of a sound practical Chri.stian Theology that is of the heart as well a s of the head. This Theology is a result of a sympathetic study and interpretation of historic Christian Faith and Doctrine as verified and confirmed by the spiritual victorv and illumination that results from the Pentecostal Indwelling of the Holy vSpirit. Page Sexenty-niiie The Department of Education The need of America, of the world, today, is professionally trained teachers possessed of a wide but exact range of knowledge in many fields, and of a high degree of specialized knowledge in one or two particular fields. To these lX)Ssessions should be added the Christian ideals coupled with high and lofty character; a God-fearing, neighbor-loving morality; and a positive spirit of helpfulness that regards the community and the world as one over-lapping field for earnest and conscientious labors : — in a word, teachers who know the form and content, the spirit and method of life service in their own fields. " Enter ye in by the strait gate, " is an underlying principle of preparation for would-be educators. The Department of Education of Taylor University yearly adds its quota to those choice, out-going students who have caught a vision of prepara- tion and service in that field whose specific purpose is teaching. On each such heart, deep engraven, may be found this aspiration : " May every soul that touches mine — Be it the slightest contact, c et therefrom some (jood. Some little grace, one kindly thought. One aspiration et unfelt. one bit of courage For the darkening sky. one gleam of faith To brave the thickening ills of life. One glimpse of brighter skies beyond the gathering mist. To make this life ivortli zvhile, And Heairn a surer heritage. " Page Eighty Depdrtment of Music The year 1925-1926 has been the best year in the history of the department. The following artists composed the faculty: Theodora ISothweH, Director; Elea- nor Patterson, Head of Voice Department ; Harlan AV. Cleaveland, Associate Professor of Voice ; George Fenstermacher, ' iolin and Theory ; and Sadie Louise Miller, Piano. There were also three student assistants: Howard M. Skinner, Piano; Melvin W. Reed, ' oice ; and J. Roy MacA [urray, Brass In- struments. The enrollment was considerably increased this } ' ear, and interest and en- thusiasm in the Department was manifested by the good attendance at the weekly practice recitals. These recitals proA ed to be of much value to the listeners as well as to the performers. The Choral Society, under the leadership of Professor Cleaveland, presented Handel ' s " Messiah " shortly after the holidays. An oratorio, " Scenes from Hiawatha, " by Coleridge-Taylor, culminated the work at Commencement time. Under the direction of Mr. MacMurray, the University Hand, which proved so efficient last year, achieved even greater success this year, and was a vital factor in the life of the school. The thirty-five piece orchestra, under Professor Fen- stermacher, did excellent work, and gave us some splendid programs during the year. The Sunday afternoon concerts preceding the regular chapel service were a winning feature of the college life. The demand for practice rooms increased to the extent that four new pianos were purchased and placed in the old Speicher Hall. The outlook for the Department of Music is most promising, and all indications point to a De- partment of still greater importance to the life of the college. Page Eighty-one The Department of Expression Another year has come and another article on the " whys and wherefores " of this department must be written, an article that no one. but the type-setter and the proof-reader, is likely to read. But for fear you might wish to know something about our department and find us unrepresented we hasten to comply with the wishes of the Gem stafif, doing for them this which you are now reading. This article is supposed to be very dignified and go on at length about the technique of platform work, how it helps you to think on your feet and a lot of high sounding phraseology of that kind that no one but the author under- stands. We are, therefore, between here and the bottom of the page, going to tell you in plain terms what the Department of Expression is doing for the future of its members. We are learning to laugh. ■ We have been having " the time of our lives this year, " laughing at all the good humor of the best fun makers in the United States and England. To laugh is to forget the shaking of the knees and the trembling of the feeble hands. A little laughter now and then is good for the best of platform men. We are eliminating a lot of bad platform manners and learning to present ourselves with a dignity and poise, such as marks the cultured man and woman. W e are making leaders of ourselves. Believing that the getting up and saying something to one ' s companions furnishes the responsibility that helps to develop leadership, we appear every day on the platform for work and helpful criticism. To say it all in a word — we are changing people, making them appear better, talk better, lead better, read better and be better. Better join us next vear. Page Eighty-two The Quill Club President, H. T. Blodgett V. President, B. W. AyrES Secretar} ' , Adeline Stanley Treasurer, Mrs. George Evan; The Quill Club of Taylor University has attained an age of three years, and is now one of the recognized organizations of the institution. Its Constitution, newly revised, defines the conditions of membership and the duties and privileges of members. It should also be known that it provides for the yearly publication in book form of selections from the contributions of members. The membership is of three classes : Firsts Active, those faculty members and others from the campus who may desire membership, and who may qualify by producing articles, prose or poetry, which are judged by the Club to possess real literary merit ; Second, Associate, such students as desire to write who may be able to pass a test similar to that for Active members ; Third, Honorary, com- posed of persons of outstanding literary ability not members of the Taylor group. The Quill Club has been in existence long enough to prove its value and influence. Current productions are of a class decidedly superior to those of a year or two ago, both in thought and in construction. Meetings are well at- tended. The Thursday evening hour following the weekly prayer meeting is an occasion highly appreciated by all members of Taylor University Quill Club. Page Eighty-three Choral Society Luther has said, " Music is the art of the prophets, the only art that can cahn the agitations of the soul ; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us. " Believing this, on June 1925, the Choral Society, under the tireless, skillful training of Professor H. W. Cleaveland, gave " Elijah " to the great enjoyment of both the Taylor audience, and that at Marion. l his year, with their policy of ever pressing on to higher and greater things, the society presented a very auspicious programme. Immediately after the Christmas holidays, the major portion of Handel ' s " Messiah " was sung. As usual on Good Friday, an appropriate composition was rendered, and the year ' s work was culminated by a performance at Commencement time, of Coleridge- Taylor ' s " Hiawatha ' s Wedding Feast, " and the " Death of Minniehaha. " Those who understand music, realize the degree of skill essential to the conducting of these great master oratorios, and choral works. Taylor Univer- sity is proud of Professor Cleaveland and his work. We cannot praise too highly the work of Professor Theodora Bothwell as accompanist. Her per- formance is dependable, attractive in its accuracy, and artistic in its rendition. Our society has this year grown to a membership of sixty. With this in- crease in membership has come an increase in effectiveness of production. The society stands as one of Taylor ' s leading organizations, meriting the admiration of both the college and the public in general. Page Eighty-four Q ' he Tdi lor Uniuersiti Orchestra Jn a general wav. it is possible to judge the condition of a music school by the orchestra which represents it. The increased strength of our Alusic Depart- ment is made very evident by the increased strength of our orchestra. This year the orchestra has between thirty-five and forty members. This increase in membership was made possible not only by the incoming of the greater number of new students in the fall, but also by the greater ability and interest of the old students. Rehearsals are well attended and are times of real benefit. In every way the orchestra responds to the leadership of Professor Fenster- macher. Tone shading and tone quality are of a higher standard than ever before. The music upon which the orchestra is working is of that type which is not only interesting to play and to hear, but is of real musical worth. At the time of the writing of this article several public programs are being planned for the winter and spring terms. It is also our hope at this time to assist the school chorus in their Commencement program. On December 13th the orchestra assisted in a program held in our chapel n om in honor of about sixty visitors f ro n Fort Wayne, Indiana, representing the alunin:e of the Old Fort Wavne Methodist College out of which Taylor University grew. At this time the orchestra received much favorable comment from its hearers. Page Eighly-tive Page Eighty-six Dean Gi.asier Debdte Codches Dean GlasiKR. Whenever anyone asks why Taylor has had such success in the forensic field, there can be but one answer : " The credit belongs to the coach, Dr. Glasier. Perhaps the secret of his success is found in the fact that victory alone is not his goal ; his aim is the development of the debaters to think clearly, to express themselves well on the platform, and most of all, to play the game fairly and squarely. He not only works hard himself in coaching the teams, but he also inspires them to work hard, too. The debaters felt that they must do their best for him, and for Taylor. Having a clear, logical mind him- self, he trains the teams to develop a convincing and logical argument. But best of all his life proves that a keen mind is made k eener by being linked up with the spiritual life that comes from God. Dean Saucier. This year Taylor has been doubly fortunate in having not only the generalship and inspiration of Dr. Glasier as debating coach, but also in having the able assistance of Dean Saucier in preparing debaters to match themselves against the representatives of other schools. In the practice debates his criticisms and suggestions helped greatly. He also traveled with the men and his hearty encouragement and geniality were a contributing psychological factor in preparing them to be at their best on the floor. As a fine Christian he also has contributed his share in helping the teams represent the Taylor spirit. Page Eighty-seven Sodngetdhd Debating Club Fall Pres., Hklkn Nickel Sec ' y., FraniKs Rowland Winter Frances Rowland MaKC. ARET CoGHLAN Spring Riiiv Dare Frances P ' ocue In the fall of 1913, Miss Sadie Miller, then preceptress, summoned the girls to the Speicher parlors for the purpose of organizing the first girls debating club of Taylor University. The girls were exceedingly anxious to do this, since the boys already had two clubs while the girls had none. After being duly organized the first question of importance was to decide on a name. " ' Soangetaha, " which means " Strong-hearted, " seemed the mo.st fitting because maidens with strong hearts are necessary on the debating field to combat with the enemy debaters. The next few years were spent in preparation for the forsenic conflicts soon to take place. When the time was finally ripe, these strong hearted maidens marched forth to victory and set the pace for their fellow clubs by defeating the proud gentlemen debaters of the school. Since that time the Mnanka Debating Club has been organized and friendly rivalry with it has thus far resulted in three victories for the Mnankas and five for the Soangetahas. Inter-collegiate debating as well as inter-club is now demanding an increased efficiency on the part of each club. The purpose of our club has been and always will be, to develop strong hearted debaters ; eflicient debaters ; and courageous debaters who are able to face the severest battle. We have been able to acconjilish this so far through the efifective assistance of our excellent facultv. Page Eighty-eiffht nindnkd Debdtinq Club Fall Pres., Harriet Leisure Sec ' v-, Claka French Winter Clara I- ' kench EVEL N DlRVEA S riiu SiK L IJlaki " , Mar ' Stoke The day for excusing ignorance on the part of women in public affairs has passed. No longer is she supposed to remain silent in the group, but, on the other hand, is expected to take her place beside her brothers on the platform. The college debating club is a vital agency in preparing woman for her place in the world. Here she is taught to speak before an audience and is trained in Parliamentary procedure. She has come to realize that the benefits derived from participation in such a club from a practical standpoint are quite as helpful as those obtained from almost any college subject. With this feeling in the ascendency, and with the increase in Taylor ' s en- rollment, the one girls " debating club in 1921 was found inadequate for the needs. Therefore, the Mnanka Debating Club was organized. In the fall of 1925, such a large number of girls desired membership with the Mnankas that it became necessary to reorganize, subdividing the club into sections. This not only affords more opportunity for debate, but al so trains three sets of officers each term. Mnankas rejoiced when in November their inter-club debaters, Mary Stoke and Dorothy Jerrett, recovered the championship banner. Notwithstanding the spirit of wholesome rivalry which exists between the two girls ' clubs of Taylor, there is a spirit of harmonious co-operation which has as its watchword: ' ' Everv Tavlor girl a member of a debating: club. " Pagpe Eighty-nine Eurekd Debdting Club Fall Pres., S. Dale Tarbell See ' } ' ., Erwin BailBy Winter Marcius Taber Everett Shilliday Spring Erwin Bailey Everett Shilliday Eureka! " I have found it! " Thus exclaimed nearly two score of new students who upon entering Taylor ' s halls of learning in the fall of 1925 in- creased our enrollment until the Eureka Club is not only the oldest of its kind at Taylor but it is also the largest. And what did these students find ? They found an organization which be- lieves in giving to its membership every available asset that is related to the art of debating ; thev found a conviction in the belief that a democratic attitude is best for the greatest and broadest development, and mutual benefit of all con- cerned. But best of all they found an organization which has an enviable heri- tage in the past accomplishments of our Eureka alumni. The Eureka Debating Club was organized in 1903 by a group of students who had a progressive and originating spirit. Though sometimes slowly, the club has made steady and firm progress. During the year 1904- " 05 the club did not function, but the next year, like a sleeping young giant, it awoke from its period of inactivit} ' , and since that time it has been developing strength and vitality. A few of the many men, who left our club room, and have gone out into larger fields of service, and have won fame and honor for themselves are : Dean Walter C. Glasier of Taylor University, Robert L. Norvelle at Indiana Central College — both being debating coaches ; ' ere Abbey who has made a good record m the mission field of India; Robert L. Stuart, a prominent preacher in the west; and Prof. B. R. Pogue, head of the Expression department at our own school. Page Ninety Euloqonidn Debating Club Fall Pres., John Shilling Sec ' v., Eugene Halterman ] ' inter Elmore Eicher Emiliu div Rosario Spring Walter Russell Kent Rose The Eulogonian Debating Club was organized with the purjiose of fostering debate, oratory and general intelligence. How well it has succeeded, of course, cannot be accurately determined, but we can make a conservative estimate by a study of its record, and by considering of what value she has been to her members. A study of records is naturallv based on the club ' s successes in the various fields of competitive relationship with its sister club. In the field of debating, the Eulogonians have held the championship an equal number of times with the Eurekans. In the field of athletics, we have always managed to hold our own. We have no measuring rod for our social standing but we can say. at least, that immediately before and after our banquets the Eulogonians rank among the ■ ' four hundred. " The following excerpts from letters will serve to illustrate the place " Eulo- gonian " holds in the hearts of her former members. From the East, " I believe no single course taken at Taylor meant so much to me as my four years in the club. " From the North, " In my graduate work my training in debate, oratory and especially in Parliamentary drill has proven invaluable. " From a mission- ary in South America, " Let me advise every student to take an active part in the debating club ; it is well worth the time spent. " From a minister on the West coast, " Allow me to recommend the Eulogonian Debating Club ; you ' ll never re- gret being a member. " Thus you can see that the club is doing its bit, and is serving its purpose in the life of Taylor ' s students. Page Ninety-one Bertha Polliit AI. K(,. RI ' T C " )( ' . lir.AN l i Axci:s Rowland Qirls A flirrtidtiue Debating Team The Taylor Girl ' s Affirmative Debating Team engaged in but one contest l)ut conducted themselves admirably in that. In the debate with the Indiana University Negative Team, which v as an open forum debate, the Taylor girls put up a logxal, clear-cut. well presented case which won the hearts and minds ■of the audience, which gave the vote by a large majority to Taylor. Miss liertha Pollitt o])ened the case for the Affirmative in a manner so •decisive and clear that it was an indication of the entire Affirmative case. Miss Pollitt is exceptionally good as first speaker because of her winning personality. To Miss Margaret Coghlan was given the difficult task of presenting half an hour ' s proof in the short space of ten minutes — which she did successfully. In the question debated. Resolved that the proposed Child Labor amendment should be ratified, a tremendous burden of proof and evidence falls on the second s]}eaker. Miss Coghlan met the test successfully. As last speaker, Taylor was honored in having M ss Francis Rowland, who has had ])revious experience on Taylor debating teams. Her calm. cool, logical manner did much in convincing her hearers that the Child Labor amendment was necessary to the future welfare of the people of the United States. Though the girl ' s season was short, it was worth while — not only to the i irls debating but to the people who were privileged to hear them. The girl ' s Affirmative Team was a living proof that women are capable, efficient platform speakers. Page Ninety-two E.MILIO DKL RoSAKIO [oIIX Shillin( Lynn Mosser Men s AJirmdtiue Team Debating, the only intercollegiate activity of Taylor University, has had the largest schedule of any previous year. Greater Taylor has here been recognized bv the many schools seeking forensic relations with us. Indiana Central College, Indiana University, Wittenberg, Heidleberg, Earlham. Ikitler, Asbury and Mar- ion College are the colleges which lined up against Taylor in 1925- ' 26. Besides, many other schools were clamoring for a hearing. Dr. Cdasier has certainl} 1)uilt a reputation among scholastic circles for the teams whi h he turns out in the old Artistotelian method of debate. His team has labored faithfully in its preparation and acquitted itself nobly on the floor. Lynn Mosser with his desperate enthusiasm could convince a judge even in the 20th century that he believed the sun re ' olved around the earth. Emilio del Rosario, with his .soft linguistic tendencies, appealed to the sentiment of all that the Child Labor Amendment really ought to be passed. John Shilling,, in his didactic and scholastic manner impressed us with his logic that there really was no other way out of the present problem. Hence, with Mr. Rosario to show why, Mr. Shilling to tell how, and Mr. Mosser to say when, we do not wonder that this team presented so bold a front. The brand was backed up by the goods. T ge Nnety-three Marcius Taber Erwik Bailey Earl Allen Mens Negdtiue Tedm There is little, if any training like debating. To be able to match wits with the chosen orators and thinkers of the universities of the country is no small task, and requires no little preparation. The syllogism must be mastered, the rules of inductive and deductive reasoning must be absorbed, and the tendency to detect fallacies should become a second nature. In debating " we must arrive at the place where we feel the truth of a thing as well as to think it. We must be trained until we are masters. What requires gift of thought, grace of manner and glibness of tongue like debating? Did not Erwin Bailey quote figures that surprised the affirmative, and did he not immediately cut away the foundation as soon as the first affirma- tive laid it? Did not Earl Allen use strategy with the affirmative at all times? And could not Marcius Taber apply the stingers to the case of his opponents, so that it could not stand? What more could we ask? Here is one of the greatest opportunities for training offered to youth in America. These availed themselves of it. Look at them. Page Ninety-four A Representdtiue Criticism and Critique Taj ' lor-Earlham Debate held March 18, 1926, at Richmond, Indiana. Professor Preston H. Scott, Purdue University — Critic Judge. ( All direct references to negative are omitted. ) I rewarded the decision two to one to Taylor because I believed that, from the standpoint of analysis of case, Taylor established its national need and hence a national remedy; also because the Taylor team did the better job in t he rebut- tal. . . . The Taylor team also displayed more fight and judgment, particularly in the rebuttal. . . . The first affirmative rebuttal was extra good. . . . The next two rebuttals caused me to decide as I did. . . . The i)articular tactics of the second affirmative and particularly the last affirmative were good. . . . The affirmative case was certainly simple, namely ( I ) Child Labor is a national menace, (II) Because of this, it requires a national remedy, (III) The amend- ment is the practical solution. Once the major premise is established in such a case, the natural conclusion follows, unless the national remedy can be shown to be worse than the present situation. The national remedy was developed bv (1) Child Labor is too large a problem for the states to handle, (2) The situation is undermining future citizenship, (3) No state can protect itself f ro n the rav- can move, thus we have a social problem. The second issue was develoj ed hv showing that federal action is required for ( 1 ) The states cannot handle the ages of Child Labor, migration, shipping goods across state lines, and children problem, (2) Any state action in itself is inadequate, and (3) Concurrent action is required. Then these proposals were presented. A ' e can leave the j roblem alone, we can give it to the states, we can turn it over to the Federal Government, or we can have co-operation between the states and the Federal Go ' ernment. The first three were answered " no, " and the last, as it comes under the amend- ment was answered " yes. " The last point, namely that the amendment is the practical .solution was developed (1) It is applicable. It is applicable because (a) It is an enabling act, (b) It fits into the present day legislative tendencies, and (c) It fits into any social problems as they arise. (2) It is workable for (a) It provides for a uniform standard, (b) It will aid state legislation, (3) It deals with the aspects of the problem which the states cannot handle. Now this case was pretty well supported by evidences and statistics In regard to the handling of argument, I thought the affirmative did the better job. The whole rebuttal work of the affirmative, it seemed to me, was superior. . . . The last affirmative rebuttal speaker in just a few words did what is seldom done in most debates — he picked the opposition up on lack of evidence. This is wdiat I call pretty good debating. Then again, when the problem of evasion came up in connection with the Federal Law of 1916, the affirmative carried its op- position ' s argument one step further and showed that these evasions were actually committed after the Federal Law had been repealed. This again is debating. Personally, on this particular point, I had no hesitation in awarding this work to the affirmative. Page Ninety-five Resume of the Debating Season In the 1925-1926 debating season, Taylor ' s intercollegiate debating teams have pitted their forensic strength against eleven teams from other colleges. The Taylor representatives have defeated some of the strongest debating teams in Ohio and Indiana. They have won five out of a possible nine victories and of their four defeats two resulted from practice debates with Marion College. The season opened with only three veteran debaters with which to build as many teams. Dr. Glasier, however, showed himself to be a master builder of efficient debaters from raw recruits. In his usual calm and efficient way, Dr. Glasier superintended the work of constructing a simple but strong case on both sides of the question. With unerring vigilance he detected fallacious arguments and eliminated superfluous material. It was due mainly to his untiring coaching that the Taylor teams excelled particularly in the organization of their material and in the effectiveness of their refutation. The (juestion developed this year was: " Re-solved, That the States should ratify the j)ending Twentieth (Child Labor) Amendment. The affirmative teams ( women ' s and men ' s ) wove their argument around three main aspects of the question; viz., (1) Child labor is a national social evil. (2) The child labor .situation requires national legislation. ( 3 ) The proposed Twentieth Amendment is the logical .solution of the child labor problem. The fundamental captions of the negati e ' s argument were : ( 1 ) The proposed Twentieth Amendment is un- necessary. (2) It cannot take care of the present child labor situation. (3) It would be a barrier to political and social progress. The consistent and logical development of these main phases of the question gave the Taylor teams the recognition that they received throughout the year.

Students and fac- ulty members alike avail themselves of the opportunity to " court " recreation, and some of the matches which they play are actual ' " love " matches. More often, however, the contestants are more evenly matched, so that the games and the sets are not ' ' love-ly. " During the tennis season all the courts are crowded with active men and women who are exercising brawn as well as brain. There are some real tennis fans at Taylor, and a spectator can often see tennis playing of no small merit. This meritorious playing has a chance to exhibit itself in the Inter-Society Tournament which is held the last few days of the school year. The weather man sent rain for the 1925 tournament, and, as a consequence, the men ' s doubles and the girls ' doubles were the only matches played. In the racket battles of ' 25, the Thalo girls and the Philo men were the victors. Thus the tennis supremacy of Taylor was left undecided. Personnkl and Scores Men ' s Doubles Philo — John Shilling Donald Wing Thalo — Melvin Reed Harold Ockenga. Philo Victory— 6-4, 5-3 (rain. Girls ' Doubles Philo — Ruth Draper Rachel York Thalo — Ora Taylor Mabel Dunscombe Thalo Victory — 6-4, 6-3. Page Ninety-nine Phildlelhean " Soils ' Basketball Team Orlo Rupp. Orlo played forward and the Thalos held their breath when he pivoted to make his deadly shots. John Paul Owen. John Paul played the other forward position. " Speed " was his slogan and he made the " counters " — a double excellence. Lerov Stiles. Many Philo games centered around Stiles. He was a hard player and many a goal was the result of his skill. Elmork EichKr. " El " shared the center honors with Stiles. " El " ]3layed hard and the fruit of his laljors grew in the score l)ook. L- ' WVRKNCK Uonll. lioyll guarded the Thalos and he certainly gave them some strong opposition. Edc,. r Weber. " Ed " guarded also. He spoiled mauA- Thalo attemjits bv his consistent in- terference. P. UL ISrunns. " The r ean ])ole " who could sure play basketball. Page One Hundred Q ' hdlomdn Boies ' basketball Team Kent Rose. Rose played forward. He played a fast game and he was a good basket shooter. Kenneth Kinnamax. ■ ' Kinney " had an almost uncann)- way of taking the ball through his oppo- nent ' s defense. When he was through that defense he lost no time in making his efforts count in the form of a goal. James Jackson. Jackson played a stellar guarding game. Breaking up plays was his specialty. Leon York. When the Philo forwards tried to advance they found Leon blocking the way. His sturdy physique made him a real factor in his team. Ed. Franks. Ed. knew how to guard and he made good use of his knowledge. His speed was parainount in all of his playing. Fenton Abrams. " Abie " did not play in every game, but his force was very appreciable when he did play, to which the score book eloquently testifies. Lee Wilson. Wilson came into his own in the latter part of the series. Making baskets was his specialty and he exhibited that specialty in every game that he played. Page One Hundred One Phildlethean Qirls ' Basketball Team Harriet Leisure. Harriet was one of the mainstays of the team, a veteran of former contests. She was a good passer and a good basket shooter. Irene KlEtzing. Irene held a forward position, where .she served as chief basket shooter of tlie Philo team. R.vcHEL York. Rachel York, at center, kept the ball in play. So well did she tip oi¥ the ball that the Thalos were often worried. Louise Hazelton. Louise played running center. She kept on the move continually and fre- quently intercepted the ball. Mary Leisure. Mary stopped the Thalo forwards when they tried to run away with the game. Irma Martin. Irma fought hard and consistently gave the Thalo forwards trouble. Neva Kletzing. Neva played a dependable game at guard. Her playing for the Blue and White was clean and spirited. Page One Hundred Two -I sJ Q ' hdlonidn Qirls ' basketbdll Team Thelma Williams. Thelma could shoot baskets. Ask the Philos. They will tell you that they would have won several games if it had not been for Thelma ' s unerring eye. VViLMA Love. Wilma played a good offensive and defensive game. She guards well and shot well, too. Winifred Moon. Winifred and " pep " were constant companions. Their companionship was nowhere more in evidence than on the basketball floor. Ida Marie SprEEn. Ida Marie exhibited her winsome qualities on the " gym " floor by doing her bit toward winning some basketball for the Thalos. Helen Burns. Helen played guard and she gave the Philos considerable trouble in that capacity. Alliens Campbell. Where Alliene was, there was action. She played the guard and center positions with no uncertain ability. JUANITA LaNDON. Juanita made some action on whatever part of the floor she was. She was small, but " pep " she had in abundance. Page One Hundred Three Eurekdn Basketball Team Carlton Shultz. Shultz and Rupp made an excellent pair at the forward positions. Shultz starred at one-hand short shots. James Jackson. Jackson alternated between forward and guard positions. He merited praise in either position. Lkrov Stiles. Stiles held the center position with the Eurekas. His timely baskets did much to help the Eurekas win the series. Lawrence Bovll. Boyll played his usual consistent game at guard. Vhen the Eulogonian men went past Boyll it was time to wake up. Orlo Rupp. Orlo has made a record for himself in T. U. basketball. His speed and brain work made a combination of which any team would be proud. Leon York. Leon payed guard. His weight and his perseverance assisted the team very much, especially while it was on the defensive. Paul Kepple. " Kep " was the Eurekan utility man and was never missing when nee ded. Page One Hundred Four Eulogonidn " basketball Team Harry ' illiams. Harry was a fast forward ; one wlio could dribble through and make a bas- ket at the expense of the Eureka team. Elmore Eicher. " El " played a consistent game at center. Determination was his and it helped to determine the value of many tries at the hoop. Melvin Reed. ' " Mel " went after the ball and often got it. Wlien he had it he shot it. Result — a busy score keeper. Harrison Taylor. Harrison alternated between the center and forward positions. " Harry " made some good points for the Eulogonians. Edgar Weber. Weber played guard and he made the Eureka forwards step lively to make any baskets. John Paul Owen. Owen played guard for the Eulogonian team and made an efficient helper for Weber on the defensive. Lee Wilson and Kenneth Kinnaman. These men played in the last game of the series. Both made a very credit- able showing for their club. Page One Hundred Five Basketball At Taylor, basketball is the pre-eminent winter sport for boys and girls alike. As autumn gives way to winter there is no lack of recruits who endeavor to exhibit their basketball prowess. New girls and boys try to show their basket- shooting supremacy, their dribbling capacity, and their remarkable speed. Vet- erans of previous seasons look on with complacency which experience gives, con- tident of a place on the team. There are three basketball series at Taylor, viz., Eulogonian-Eureka, Philo- Thalo Boys ' , and Philo-Thalo Girls. ' The Eulogonians and Eurekas " tip-off " the first official series of the season. If the teams are evenly matched this series continues until all of the possible games are played. The Philo-Thalo Boys and the Philo-Thalo Girls follow in separate series. The games of these two series are often played on the same nights, the girls ' games usually preceding the boys ' contests. It is in the Philo-Thalo series that society spirit and enthusiasm rises to the bursting point. Throughout the entire 1925-1926 basketball season, the basketball managers and those in charge did their best to maintain a high brand of clean sportsman- ship. The athletes entered into the contests with a spirit of friendly rivalry. They battled not alone to win, but more than that, they strove to win honorably. Buring the last season the basketball series at Taylor were real cogs in the ma- chinery of preparation for a life of useful service.

Just glance over this resume of the 1925 season. At the beginning of the season a dark cloud hung over the baseball hoizon. The baseball diamond had become an indiscernible part of the campus lawn. Who was to promote a diamond-building project? Baseball stock was running " low, when A. C. Thompson, like knight-errant of old, came to the rescue at the opportune moment. Before many days had passed, the new diamond was duly christened " The A. C. Thompson Baseball Field. " Almost before the diamond was ready, the Eureka and Eulogonian aspir- ants were " warming up. " For se eral davs the respective managers shouted and shifted as they " whipped " their material into shape. Both debating club teams went through a final gruelling practice, and then came the first game of the series. So well matched were the " Eulog " and Eureka teams that the series went to the full three games. The longer Philo-Thalo contest followed close on the heels of the Eureka- " Eulog " series. Most of the society players had played in the debating club series, and they were able to show the benefits of their experience in the major combats. The Philos took the first game by a narrow margin. The Thalos took the next, and then began a veritable see-saw of victories and defeats. It took eight of the possible nine games of the series to decide that th e Thalo was the better of the two teams. Baseball at T. U. is alive and growing !

Vou know, of course, that she has been very low ? Yes, a good many really thought that she would not pull through ; hut some of us children and some close friends prayed for her, some even prayed all night, and God answered and spared her for her great work. How glad we are that we did not let her die ! When we compare our mother with others around the country we may well be proud of her. She may be called old-fashioned, but if those claiming to be modern must teach their children to smoke and dance and to disbelieve the word of God, while our mother stands so firm for all that is good and true, I think we should appreciate her and tell her so. She wishes me to thank all who have been so good to her and especially those who come to see her so often. This does her so much good ; but she would love to see every one of you and know that you have not forgotten her. When some of you were here last, you know we did not have much room ; but now we have a dining room that will hold all of you, and a wonderful parlor, and sleeping rooms " galore. " Some of these are spare rooms which are all fixed up ready for you. She says to remind you of our reunion in June each year. We have such grand times then. It is so interesting to be together and hear some of the family, wiro have been in different parts of the world, tell of their work. Will you not write occasionally and tell her what you are doing? Even though you do not think it amounts to much, she will be glad to hear of it. Those who are leaving for the first time this year, will you please remember to do this? With best wishes to you all, Your sister, Anne Alumnus. P. S. Mother would like to have you bring your friends whenever yoir come. She loves to meet new people. A. A. Page One Hundred Nine Tdi]lor Alumni It is the mission of Taylor University to prepare her sons and daughters for the task of sharing Hfe ' s really good things with needy mankind. This task carries her graduates into various fields of endeavor, and it is gratifying to hear, that, in almost every instance, they are striving to perpetuate the ideals of the school for which the great " modern Apostle to the Gentiles " prayed often and ■earnestly.

Page One Hundred Twenty-three Taylor University A new era of progress marks the goings of this old college which originated in 1846. in Getting ahead in educational standards and losing no grounds in standards of morals and Christian faith — this is the Taylor University notion of progress. The increase of students is near 50 per cent this year, and promises the same ratio next year. This is not the main evidence of progress. Quality and stability are placed above volume in Taylor ' s scale of values. Entering- Taylor University is simple, if Taylor suits you, but unadvisable if it does not suit you.. Fifteen units of high-school work, a clean life, a serious purpose, and $118 in money will put you in and through the first term of three months. " It can ' t be done, " said a prominent lady, when told that a college was run whose boys used no tobacco and whose girls did not dance. The secret of this at Taylor is not Pharisaism or blue laws, but the right kind of seed corn and the proper cue. We believe in the sound motives of young people in all the col- leges, and that they can rise above dis- sipation and the vices if given a helpful environment, provided they are not slaves to their errors when they enter. Several of God ' s elect have shown their faith at this point by investing their lives in Taylor University. It turns out preachers, missionaries and Christian educators and Christian citizens in a pro- ' ortion above the average college. Recently a good man turned in fifty thousand dollars in first mortgage notes lo endow a chair. This will be a monu- ment to his family name more enduring than marble. Taylor ' s only defective point to-day in measuring up to the modern standardizing criteria is short- age of endowment. There is room here for the choicest investment, in putting up buildings, and endowing chairs of Missions, Biblical Literature, Science, Economics, etc. Pag-e One Hundred Twenty-four What You Will Find at Taylor Agriculture Art (Decorative) Bible Education Expression History Home Economics Homiletics Language Literature Missions Music Philosophy- Psychology Science Social Science Theology A happy social life A sound Christian faith An inteligent patriotism Clean and profitable athletics Wholesome climate and healthful living For catalogue Write the President John Paul Upland, Indiana Page One Hundred Twenty-five HL C.
