Qirurgr Glrniusr TO have seen a century rise and wane: to have spent four score years of active, influential life in such a century of unmatched achievements: to have taken part in a nationis rise to a world-commanding power and to have participated in its struggle against disunion: to have wrought in the educational uplift of a community: to be a captain of industry and to have maintained abroad the credit and integrity of his city during a great panicg to place moral obligation above legal discharge in the settle- ment of large financial claimsg and to command in the fast slanting rays of lifeis day the esteem and confidence of his fellow citizens:-these are the titles of Hon. George W. Crouse to public distinction and appreciation. He is a natural-born philosopher who dreams and achieves. He is a thinker and leader of the better type and a practical man of civic pride and responsibility. Every real need stirs his heart of sympathy and more often receives his gracious touch of helpfulness. He prefers to see the fruits of his generous service while he lives. "The only wealth one talces with him when he dies is what he gives away while living," is a philosophy of his that has touched into being many civic and philan- thropic interests in Akron. For these sufhcient reasons of public service, and for his generous support and long years of invaluable ofhcial service to Buchtel College, does the Class of I9l l dedicate this Annual to the Honorable George W. Crouse. 5 BUCHTEL HALL -g, :gr.,4.. .-ga ,., . L ,,,,,, 4,L,,M,, , , Aw Y Y U-U, , MMMN YYYVV ,A Y HZAYVY H x X BUCHTEL COLLEGE CAMPUS. Fl lf? ' - ---rum '- -x - 03212 in Alma mater 'W XY?-3 All...

You, worthy Senior, who burned the midnight oil in our behalf, you, gentle junior, whose many love affairs we have paradedg you, learned Sophomore, who so gen- erously gave of your learningg you, foolish Freshman. who have been the butt of many a jolceg you, bearded Professor,-if you feel too keenly the thrust of our satiric pen,-we crave the pardon of one and all. Forgive these idle jests. All was grist that came to the editorial mill. We have tried to picture Buchtel as it is. lf, per- chance, we have dwelt too much upon the victories of the year, and have passed hurriedly over the failures, it is because we remember best those things which were happiest. We close the book until you shall open it. THE EDITORS 9 Gwganizatinn nf Ernzirva AQB. CHURCH, A. M., D. D., LL. D., President. HON. GEORGE W. CROUSE, Vice President. CHARLES R. OLIN, M.

The voice of the Future now calls us away And with joy to the call we respond, From thy gentle bosom thy children must stray To new fields that await them beyond. We stand on l..ife's seashore and gaze on the main, On the billows that break on the shore, And with noble ambition each bosom doth strain To be out 'mid the wild ocean's roar. We heed not the might of the tempest's strong arm, Cr the depths of the wild midnight sea, Where'er we are borne amid danger,s alarm We shall conquer triumphantly. No task is too great for the heart that is light, For the soul that is noble and pure, I And those who are seeking for truth and for right Of a gracious reward may be sure. Oh, Nineteen-eleven, her heart is as true As the hearts of our heroes of old, , And ere we depart let us homage renew To old Buchtel, her blue and her gold. May thy halls long resound with the laughter of youth May thy name and thy fame brighter grow, May thy students drink deep from thy fountains of truth In the richness of youthful life's glow. 9 May thy campus grow green in the kiss of the spring May thy trees blush with bloom in the sun, May the song of the bird as he Hits on the wing Blend with carols by students begun. 9 May no cloud ever shadow thy sky's arch of blue, May no error debase truth's pure gold, May thy sons be as strong and thy daughters as true As thy sons and thy daughters of old. And Nineteen-eleven, with true hearts and strong, Tho' to Buchtel we now say farewell, In memory ever will carry a song ' That for Buchtel oft fondly will swell, 24 Qllasa nf 1911 COLORS--Brown and Cold.

Besides, were a Senior to write his own class his- 7?p K gf E tory, someone would be sure to say, "Too much self-praise!" So, it may w be best to publish a letter which was picked up on the campus not long lgdgt' ago, and later found to have been written by one of our little Freshmen: My dear, dear Mamma:- Cne more week of college gone, and each week seems better than the one before. It's a grand old school, but the grandest thing about it is the Senior class. Of course, my class is fine, but oh! I wish I were a Senior! Theres are twenty-one in the class and that's the largest there has been for a long time. They started in the right way when they were Freshmen by letting the Sophomores beat them in basket-ball. I understand that is the proper thing to do. But when they were Sophomores, they won both the tug-of-war and a basket-ball game from the Freshmen. One day, that same year, the Freshmen girls thought the Sophomores were going to have a social, and wasted a whole afternoon tying them up. But when they found that the Sophomores hadn't even planned a social, they felt so squelched that they left the 1911 girls alone after that. The 1912 class tried to get ahead of 191 1 lots of times, but they couldn't do it. V You,ve heard me speak of Tree Day, haven't you? Well, last year, when they were Juniors, they surprised the whole school by coming to the banquet in yellow caps and gowns, with brown tassels on the caps. Everyone says they looked just like the Senior Class, only much brighter. Even Prexy said they looked "just lovelyf, And, oh! mother, I wish I could have been at their Hop! It must have been beautiful, all trimmed up with brown and gold paper and chrysanthemums. The people that were there haven'i, stopped talking about it yet. But there is some consolation. Maybe I'll get a bid for their Prom. Commencement week. Now that they are Seniors, you ought to see them work. The school never could exist without them. They were the first class to make a pledge toward the Endowment F und and they are going to give two hundred and ninety dollars. But just wait till you see their "Tel-Buch!" I'll bring one home with me in June. There goes the supper bell. Good-bye! Your loving daughter, M., 26 MAGGIE CRUICKSHANK, Akron, Ohig, Utica Free Academy, Utica, N. Y., I907. Ph.

One of the brightest luminaries in the Senior heaven, shining in all her classes, and beaming on her friends. ARDEN E. I-IARDGROVE, Akron, Ohio. Akron High School, Jan., l908. B.

At that time the Class of 1912 made its first XJ entrance into its halls of learning. From the first this class, which has L since become the pride of the institution, seemed to inspire new life in the various college activities. That year athletics boomed at Buchtelg that wie qpis 635423 year ground was broken for the new Knight Laboratory, in fact, there was a general awakening which was due entirely to the inspiring presence of the Class of 1912. One thing has marked this class from the beginning. This is the spirit of unselfish- ness and good-will which its members have always displayed toward others. They generously allowed the Spohomores to win the tug-of-war, at the same time demonstrating their own physical prowess, and showing clearly that they could have won the contest themselves, had they cared to be selfish. The same policy was followed the next year in the basket-ball game with the Class of I9I 3. The newly-acquired class were unusually timorous and bashful as Freshmen, and the Class of 191 2 considered it a duty to encourage and help them. So they were given encouragement and self-confidence by being allowed to win in their first class contest. Whenever they held a class social they aided the other classes by giving free and full information as to where the ice-cream would be put, yet so deceitful were the other classes, that they regarded such easy information as untrue, and failed to take advantage of it. Some ill-minded people are wont to make unkind remarks about our size. We have ever believed that quality is of more importance than quantity. Our modesty prevents us from mentioning the l-lop, and the delight and wonder it caused at Buchtel. We might speak of honors which our members have won, and the offices they have held. We could boast of the Buchtelite editor, the representatives in intercollegiate debates, but we do not care to boast. Should our little band grow smaller, we could still render much service to our loved Buchtel. Being small in number we are drawn closer togetherg we work with a greater unity, we are more loyal to our Alma Mater. 40 3iOD??1H FTKOEQHS 5-x av - ffm" UMX A l ' Y + ' f"'Ww, pw "Arm an, - Q W' W 4 N V Wi 10 A X b 1 WW W X N H U' M CJ f W 'M "oz X ll L ' u ML.: I fwffx Riu ' ssrn I':'?-I D "mr .

This once they played a low-down trick And hid the burr in brushes thick, Then slunk away to leave us all To any fate which might befall. They thought they'd done an awful deed, frlqhey called it "fair" in their rude creedl. But did we mind it in the least? Our fun and laughter but increased! 44 Aid came to us, when close to dawn.

Freshmen. we're not slow! ! 45 0112155 lgizinrg Hoaeqiooiesw I-IEN we first dipped pen into the historic ink and sat down to prepare this le 01 3 chronicle, we decided to make a radical departure by abstaining from all F 7 5:3 exaggeration. To boast is not our province. Vve have ever pursued a lu vigorous and aggressive policy, and we know that we have a past and a -x future that even this history, no matter how splendid and distinguished, could fully justify. Naturally, our first recollection of our earliest days on "The Hill" is that of the reception. Being a little green, we did not mix very much with the other classes. A little later, however, we made the whole college open their eyes, when we walloped the Sophs at basket-ball. But that was not all. We afterwards challenged the three upper classes and unmercifully beat them. From that time on the Class of l9l 3 was highly respected. ' As Sophomores, we feel ourselves in a new relationship to our college, and with keen regret realize that our course is nearly half over. Wie have endeavored to fulfil all the essential requirements of traditiong hence it was to our deepest sorrow that we were beaten by the Freshies at basket-ball. But we soon recovered from the shock, knowing that, "Defeat is only a stepping-stone to success." We have tried to conduct ourselves as model students, not mentioning a few minor details, such as breaking up class parties, etc. VVe also have shown our ability in athletics. Five of our men made letters on the foot-ball team of 1909-I 0, and five made letters on the best foot-ball team Buchtel ever produced. In other sports we are equally strong, and will continue as we have in the past, to do our utmost in upholding the honor of our beloved Alma Mater. Buchtel has ever been nearest our hearts and in the future may we have the satisfac- tion of knowing that we have given our best efforts to her. 46 ,.,.,- -W- ? L-- , f i Q , -?-"K Y 2 1 ,Q My ' ..

These were the beginnings of the class of nineteen fourteen. destined to make a big "noise" at Buchtel. At the end of the first week was held the Annual Reception for the new students. To this came most of the Class of l9l4, and after the customary introductions, they were admitted into college fellowship. They showed their true spirit when at their first class meeting. after having elected able ofhcers, they arranged at once for a Class Social. Noble Freshmen! This was a good beginning! But one thing worried the Freshmen:-Their enemies. the haughty Sophomores, had flung to the breeze their emblem of tyranny. the gold and white, from the highest point of the campus flag pole. And the wily creatures had cut the cord. Moreover, Prexy issued orders that none should scale the pole for fear of life. But one dark night. while Sophomores slept, four brave Freshmen stole to the campus. Climbing half-way up the pole, they hauled to the top an old broom soaked in gasoline, so that it rested just beneath the gaudy emblem of the Sophs. Then with unerring aim a lighted torch was thrown-a flash! The flimsy banner of the Sophs burned merrily, and was no more. There followed a corn roast in the pasture back of the Voris home, where the doughty Sophs looked on. but dared not venture near. Two weeks later came the social at Springfield Lake, undisturbed by our enemies. From this time on foot-ball united the school and classes forgot their rivalry in the game. Criss, Weeks and Wilhoyt, of the Freshmen Class, did much to bring about the desired victories. The Freshmen-Sophomore Contest in basket-ball was held December IO. l9l0. It was an exciting game, but the Freshmen came forth victorious, with a score of 54-36, free at last to wear their crimson and gray. After foot-ball came basket-ball, with Wilson and Criss working hard for honors. After that, exams. Then Freshmen and Sophs buried the hatchet and united in giv- ing a brilliant masquerade in the Gym., January 30, l9I l, much to the envy of the Upper Classmen. XVednesday, March 22, will go down in history as the day of the thrilling sugar bush escapade, in which the Freshmen, as usual, were victorious. Cur youth is no hindrance to our history. Often the most important events are crowded in the shortest space of time. It is so with the Freshmen. SI iairrrv Eihrarg , 5 l ly l I-IALUE TILLSON. Librarian. 1 i , I "A blessed companion is a book-a book that, ftly chosen, is a life-long frienclf, 1 -DOUGLAS JERROLD. "Well chosen" is the term bestowed upon our college library and justly, for though Q small, Bierce Library boasts of a good, workable collection of books. Realizing that a library is an essential part of every college, a number of Buchtel's loyal friends early gave of their means to found one. General Lucius V. Bierce gave his entire library, and later of his means for its benefit. In recognition of this gift, the library bears his name. Others gave liberally of their means and also of their libraries to make it a more useful collection. Mr. Buchtel, himself, gave much from time to i time, and through his influence, Mr. I-lavemeyer, the "sugar king," gave a generous sub- scription, making a very material addition to the little group of books. The two literary societies, Bryant and Cary, also accumulated libraries, which were P later turned over to the College Library. Among the later gifts, the more notable ones are those from the libraries of the late Judge E. P. Green, Prof. Elias Fraunfelter and Prof. Charles C. Bates. 'i l In the early days of the College, the library and reading room were separate. It T would be more proper to say reading rooms, as there were two, one for the young ladies and one forthe young gentlemen, situated at either end of the first floor, While the library, proper, was on the third floor. - At that time, the library was opened only on state occa- sions or perhaps once or twice a week. The Annual of '80 facetiously remarks "'That l K i l 52 this library embraces a goodly collection of books we can personally testify. having looked it over one day about two years ago, when the librarian had. in some unaccount- able manner left the door unlocked, a thing unprecedented in the history of the institution." ln l88l. a reading room association having been formed by the students. the library and reading room were united. It was now open to the members every day and to students not members, two days of the week. ln IS94, the books were re-classihed under the Dewey system and an author catalog made. This work was done entirely by C. R. Olin. who. as a student of Library Science. felt the need of a new system in Bierce Library. The library was then brought down to the first floor, where it remained until the building was destroyed by the fire. Xvhen the new building was erected. the library was given temporary quarters in the northwest corner. It was then the expectation that these quarters would be only tem- porary and the present crowded condition makes the need of a separate building so im- perative that it is hoped this expectation may soon be realized. During the summer of l90l, an expert cataloger added the subject and title catalog and put the library in shape for the beginning of work in the fall. The College was fortunate in that the main body of the library was preserved from the hre. About 3.300 volumes. among which were a large number of government documents and volumes of magazines just returned from the bindery, were the principal loss. This loss made a gap in the magazine file which it has been the earnest endeavor of succeeding librarians to hll. The library now consists of about 9,500 volumes, besides nearly 400 volumes of unbound magazines which it is hoped will soon be bound. Beside the books, the students have access to about 65 magazines and periodicals which are in the reading room, placed there either by subscription or gift. The two catalogs, before spoken of, are being united to form a dictionary catalog. An innovation has been introduced this year in the form of a series of lectures to the Freshmen class on the "Use of a Library," each lecture being accompanied by practice work. It is too soon to say anything about the permanent results, but so far as can be judged, this is very satisfactory. The librarians who have had charge of the library from its beginning up to the present are as follows: Prof. W. D. Shipman. Dr. Mary B. jewett. Prof. C. R. Clin.

Lois HELD Bl lihi Sigma Alpha Phi Sigma Alpha was founded in June, l9l0, by the Senior Class of that year, with an initial membership of twenty. The object of the fraternity is 'ito raise the standard of scholarship in Buchtel College and to give due reward for meritorious attainments therein, with the final aim of securing for the college a Phi Beta Kappa charterf' The members of Phi Sigma Alpha includeg first, all the members of the class of I9I0g second, the members of the faculty who belong to Phi Beta Kappa or any other honorary fraternityg and third, three students from each Senior class who shall have com- pleted three and one-half years at Buchtel in a course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts or its equivalent. These three students are to be chosen by the faculty as fol- lows: Firstf the student, man or woman, having the highest grades for the three and one- half yearsg second, the man and the woman, exclusive of the one first chosen, who have the next highest grades for the three and one-half years. As soon as possible after the beginning of the second semester of the senior year, these three students, in a formal meeting of the local members of the fraternity, are given the privilege of wearing the fraternity badge and colors in recognition of their scholarship. The regular initiation occurs in June, during Commencement week of the same year. The fraternity colors are green and silver. The badge is in the shape of an ancient gold coin, bearing on one side a serpent, a helmet and the Greek letters, Phi Sigma Alpha, and upon the reverse side, ten stars, the name and class of the owner and the words, Buchtel College.

Granville. Ohio. It is an honorary society, to which only honor graduates of preparatory schools are eligible. Beta Chapter was granted to Buchtel Academy in May. l9l0. The object of the organization is to advance high ideals of scholarship, to en- courage earnest efforts by recognizing excellence and to promote fellowship. The legislative authority of the Sorority is vested in a General Convention that shall meet once in three years. and in a Board of Regents. which shall consist of the President- Ceneral, the Secretary-General. and three other members elected for three years. The badge is a gold key charm. made by a modihcation of the "Nile Key." The colors are Nile green and pink. The stone is the opal. The flower is a pink rose. The motto is "Kleis Zoesf' Each chapter elects members from the graduating class, who have completed a full course of study with an honor record, and who stand in the hrst hfth of the class. Each chapter may also elect to membership teachers of the school who are members of the Phi Beta Kappa or any other similar honorary college society, or who were honor graduates in their secondary schools. The charter members of Beta Chapter are the two highest in grades from each previous class. The officers at Buchtel are. president, Miss Rines: treasurer, Katherine Otis: secre- tary, May Rinehart, and an executive committee of Miss Herndon, Miss Amy Saunders, and Evelyn Church. 83 Alpha Brita Finn The Alpha Delta -Tau Fraternity was founded in 1906. It was the aim of the founders to give to preparatory schools of high grade an organization similar in its aims and ideals to Phi Beta Kappa. The Constitution provides for four classes of Members: Charter Members, Hon- orary Members, Faculty Members and Members in Course, who are elected from the honor boys of the graduating class. Membership is based primarily on scholarship, but no student known to be-defective in character need be nominated for membership. Buchtel Academy was voted a Charter of Alpha Delta Tau, May I6, l9l0. The other schools holding Charters are The Jacob Tome Institute, Maryland, Phillips Exeter Academy, N. H., Phillips Andover Academy, lVlass.g William Penn Charter School, Pa., Evanston Academy of Northwestern University, Ill., Centenary Institute, N. J., Doane Academy of Denison University, Granville, Ohio. The President-General of the Fraternity is Dr. A. W. Harris, President of North- western University.

'lihis committee met ancl macle plans, and in the Fall 'lierm work went ahead. The girls re- sponded enthusiastically. and an organization meeting was helcl, November eleventh. in Crouse Gymnasium. Forty girls signecl blanks lor charter membership. The Association work. at present. consists of the bi-weekly devotional meeting, at which a variecl program is given, ancl a weekly Bible class. Practical service, relations with other Ciollege Associations and a larger organimtion of committee work will be the work for next vear. 4- 'lihe Association furnishes an opportunity for religious life among the stuclentsg it gives chance for helpful sell-expression, both in religious meetings and in actual service for others. 'lihe Buchtel Branch has already taken an important part in the life of the col- lege girls, and we hope for a larger place in the college life ol the future. 89 BUCHTELITE BOARD BUCHTELITE STAFF. 90 Chr Burhtrlitr s N Issued monthly during the College Year.

CHARLES BULGER A desire was felt on the part of some of the students for a greater opportunity for using the German language than that offorded in the class-room. Realizing that practice alone makes perfect, a few of the more advanced students organized a club and chose the name of Verein Deutscher Studenten. The meetings are devoted entirely to conversa- tion in the German language, the subjects for discussion being chosen by the program committee. Such topics as the retelling of stories from German or English literature, peculiarities in German customs, etc., are discussedg in short, anything which shall tend to increase fluency and accuracy in speech, as Well as give a better understanding of the great German people. The time of meeting is arranged entirely as convenient to the club members. The senior members feel that the club has been of benefit, and hope that it may be continued next year. Membership is open to anyone who has had at least one year of German. 94 W 1 A . A I 1 r v K J ,FII 211515.

The realizing of that ideal involves the creation of a plant, the selection of a teaching force, and the ad- herence of a constituency for both finances and student attendance. With a little readjustment, which will not be at all expensive, the working plant of the College can be made quite adequate to her class needs. The College is supporting at the present time some rather expensive adjuncts which are not germane to her distinctive service to the community in higher education, and which in the realization of her ideal, can be discontinued without impairing her efficiency, and with no particular loss to the community, though perhaps some little inconvenience. The future community life of the College, in which at least eighty per cent. of the student,s time is involved, will draw to itself, as its needs become more apparent, two added buildings, viz.: a chapel in which appropriate chapel exercises, student convocations, lectures, entertainments and concerts will be held, and an appropriately arranged and conducted social center building, where the democratic social life of the student body, both men and women, shall be directed and adjusted. There will also come some added equipment for physical training and some better facilities for collegiate sports. In her teaching force, Buchtel College always has been and is today exceedingly strong and fortunate. The Hold guard" who labored in her behalf during the first three decades of .her history were, in the main, men and women of marked ability in class- room work and college administration, were people of standing in the field of scholarship, and wielded a strong influence for good in the community life of the students. This ac- counts for the accepted standing of the College East and West among educators and educational institutions that are familiar with her men and work. The same can be said with eminent fairness of her present teaching force and the grade of work they are doing. The future Buchtel will continue to draw to its teaching force people who love the arts and sciences for their own sake, who love the work of their profession because of its op- portunity to develop the best types of manhood and womanhood and who will wield thus a directing influence in civic life. . . The importance of the work of the Public School teacher and the College Prof fessor becomes apparent when the following factsare considered, viz.: that there are about 19,000,000 of young people attending the various schools of this country over whom teachers are wielding an influence. Of this number of college age, less than one per cent., or less than one in a hundred enter collgeeg yet these college men, less than one per cent. of the school trained people of any generation, and unpromising as they often appear for citizenship in theircollege life, are composing 30 per cent. of the members of our lower House of Congress: 40 per cent. of our national Senateg nearly 50 per cent. of our cabinet officers, fully 50 per cent. of our Presidents and practically all of the members of our Supreme Courts. 124 In our professions, this small one per cent. of college men furnishes 20 per cent. of our physicians, 40 per cent. of our lawyers, and over 80 per cent. of our clergymen, and these percentages must necessarily be largely raised in the future owing to the rapidly advancing educational requirements for these professions. The products of Buchtel kiol- lege's scholarship and training are already filling responsible and influential places in the citizenship and public life of our nation. For the hrst twenty-five years of her life, Buchtel follege had a hnancial and busi- ness constituency who felt responsible for the life of the College: who were generous to the measure of their ability, and loyal to the trusts imposed. though a constituency not always adequate to her full needs. After the passing of this constituency. the College. for some years, had no one of means who felt responsible for her life and progress. For some time most of the money contributed to her support came as the result of earnest solicitation and forced campaigns and was given in the spirit of charity and alms: hence was small in amount and inadequate to her current needs. The College is again gather- ing to itself a constituency of business and professional men who already represent more influence and wealth than any previous constituency. and who are expressing their desire for a larger life of the College and their responsibility for her welfare. Buchtel College, to realize its future possibilities, must have a constituency of goodly numbers who shall make the welfare of the College their personal and family interest: who shall manifest their responsibility by personal support and by securing the interest of others, who shall take pride and pleasure in the commanding influence and usefulness of the institution. The College faculty, by wise administration and efhcient service, will make the College worthy of the confidence and enthusiastic support of such a constituency: but by their natural limitations, they must not be expected to be external promoters. taking the places of her Official Board and her sustaining friends. In student attendance, Buchtel College has always had a constituency respectable in numbers and character and quite commensurate with her equipment of plant and size of teaching force, to do high-grade work. To maintain and to increase her student con- stituency with the growing years, the College will shape her courses and will present her services with two objects in view. First, she will meet the generally accepted educational requirements and standards of the American College. Second, she will differentiate herself from other colleges by shaping her courses and adjusting her plant to the specihc needs ancl opportunities of her local field. The community about Buchtel College presents some characteristics in natural re- sources and business interests little shared by other college communities about her. Akron has the largest population centering in her for trade and education of any college town in Ohio except Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. Buchtel follege, then, occupies a strategic position as to populated environment and needs of certain specialized forms of higher education. Given adequate equipment to offer practical work in vocational. scientific and mechanical courses, the College will never need to bil M1Xt0US Of OVNUXCVI herself for a student constituency. Such an equipped and differentiated College would be the best business proposition the city of Akron has ever considered. The College could then escape the present in- stitutional fault of confounding bigness with greatness. She would then attract a class of 125 students from which could be made selections and eliminations according to quality without regard to quantity and would be doing a kind of work that could be judged more easily by results. in quality. In such a future, Buchtel College will prove the immutable law that in real service is true greatness. As President W. P. Few has said: "The greatness of a college depends not upon the size of its plant or the number of its students, but upon the quality of the men who teach and the quality of the men who learn,-upon its ideals and its influence." ' The present Buchtel is a prophecy of her future ideal. GPIII' A E G35 B is for Buchtel, long may she stand, Our own Alma. Mater, the Queen of the land.

"Aunty" Brown came to Buchtel in l878, from western New York. and brought with her nine young people who wished an education. 'lihis was the beginning. john R. Buchtel furnished them a house, rent free. on Carroll Street, and gave them S100 with which to start housekeeping. Mr. Schumacher gave them flour from his mill, and in this way the living expenses for each were 52.00 per week. These people lived on the club plan and did their own work. They called their home "The Old Shoe." "There was an old woman who lived in a shoe, who had a great many children but knew just what to do." 'ilihis house was situated across from the gymnasium, on the spot where the "New Shoe" stands. These young people had many happy times. The most important and most enjoyed event was the annual banquet on Aunty Brown's birthday. Dec. l l. 'lihere has never been a year since 1878 that Aunty has not had one or two students with her. She has always been interested in young people, and has dedicated one ol her books to her "Host ol young people who have made my life a pleasant journey all the way through." Aunty is now eighty-eight years old. and as bright and cheery as ever. She can no longer go to church, because ol her accident in breaking her hip three years ago. Aunty claims that her last days are her happiest. Her message to her young people is this: Nliell all the boys and girls to be cheerful and industrious, to be good and always have a helping hand for the poor." t27 'Exvnnt illinnnlight Eanrvn Can you tell me why this silence, Why this awful trepidation That comes stealing, stealing, stealing, Oier the l-lall and laboratory? Now it echoes -to the prep. school, To the gym. and dormitory, Where the inmates all are stricken By a strange and awesome trembling, As they look up all their actions just to see what they may hope for. We may look to see the answer In a closed and bolted office, Where no student dares to venture But by an official notice Written on the college paper, Fastened on the college mail rack. But within that fearful office, With its bolted door and windows And its keyhole stuffed with cotton, There is found a grave assembly Of the powerful and mighty, Who are vested with the power There to make or break a "student" All are grouped about the portals Of the consultation chamber. First and foremost in the meeting There we see our well-known "PreXy," I-le who fain would leave the shadow Of our famous nl-lall of Learning" To instruct the backward farm-hand How to raise the mighty cabbage From the low and obscure carrot. l-le it is who calls to order All our dignified professors. As discussions wax more strongly, One professor, wise and wary, Bounces from his red plush stronghold And, suspicious, scans the hallway, Just to see that no bold "student" Lurks around to learn the causes Of the bitter dissertation Leaking through the open transom. At this special Tuesday meeting ls discussed a weighty question, To be settled, once forever,-- Whether, in the college dances Given by the dance committee, It were fitting, wise and proper, Better for the college wholly, For its splendid reputation, Which above all personal wishes Must come first to every "student," For the faculty of Buchtel To shut down on moonlight dances. Each side gives its chief debaters Chance to air their oratory- Chance to saw the air around them With their easy, graceful gestures. Soon outside the sky grows darkerg All the dicky birds are roostingg Soon the bats begin to circle All around the deepening twilight, And the lights begin to twinkle From the city down below us. Still the waiting ustudentsl' linger In the hall outside the office, ln their anxious groups and clustersg Some, more nervous than the others, Tear their hair and walk the hallway, Pausing every other minute, Looking toward the bolted doorway. Now, at last, the door is opened, lZ8 And the faculty comes forward Wfith a measured tread and stately. ltiyes comrnuning with the heavens. All their trouble now is over: Absences excused, forgiven: Cihapel cuts once more are settled: All the lectures have been given By the discipline committee. And the look of peace and quiet Xvhich is seen upon their features fornes from sense of duty finished ln a just and wise decision. But a groan comes from the students Xvhen they see their hopes and wishes Blighted by a single meeting.

'lihree whoc days and nights their wailing Echoes through the halls of Buchtel.

'lhe line gmmnasium of Huehtel tiollege was ablaze with lights. lfrom the windows of the sixteenth floor issued volumes of noise, sirens, air-ship horns, and all manner of noise-making devices were being used to their utmost capacity. lfvery now and then a lcloo Rah, Rah Roo! given by .i thousand throats would boom forth with a reverberance that shook the passing aernplanesg then would follow the battle cry of our opponents. Sixteen hundred husky sons of Dear Old Sloberlin were there to see Buchtel trodden under foot. But why this awful noise and excitement? lt was not always thus. llaclt in the days of l9l l, our teams lined up on Buchtel l'-ield to do battle: U.-Xn eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." was the war cry. "Kill him!" "Smother him!" "Knock his head off!" were the disgraceful phrases hurled from the side lines. Ah! but what a change! No more would our boys play the rough pastime termed "l"ozit Ball." No more would our heroes limp from the held with ribs broken and eyes blackened s .Not so. "Ping Pong," the game of gentleness and skill, was setting the millions of our country wild with excitement. It was the greatest collegiate game since lflli. lfver since the former date, when over four hundred young lives were blotted out by the rougher game of Foot Ball. Ping Pong had been fast rising to popularity. until now the ordinary college man would rather witness a game of Ping Pong than go over to lfurope. lt was a game in which there was little possibility of slugging. kiclting or biting, and as yet there had been no deaths and very few injuries resulting. 'lihe worst injury occurred in l9l6, during the great Yale-Harvard battle. Ralph Coy. of Yale, son of the famous 'led Coy. slipped and fell in going after a "l'lighball" and skinned his left elbow. A loss of blood followed. After this, Notre Dame and Mount Union College both put the ban on the game, but after two years of restraint they decided to again take it up, and this year were again represented. On the night of Nlarch 3rd, lluchtel and Sloberlin would do battle to decide the championship of the Middle XVest. lhe great Ping Pong Auditorium of lluehtr-l's new gymnasium would be hlled to its greatest capacity. ilihe entire hfteenth and sixteenth floors were built especially for seating three thousand people, who could view the great national game without straining their neclcs to do it. At 7:I5 the airship garage above Buchtel Hall was hlled, and the late corners were anchoring their ships almost anywhere above the campus. A few of the poverty-stricken came in their automobiles, and instead of entering the auditorium from the roof they had to go up in the elevators. ilihe sight that greeted one as he entered the auditorium was wonderful. lhe whole left section. floor and balcony was hlled with lluchtel rooters, while on the opposite side were the Sloberlin men, slightly outnumbering us. Among our Alumni present were Petr' Man- lsin, 'l.?.. mayor of our flourishing city. Xliith him sat his wife and daughter, Gladys. just above him sat a group of old grads. 'lihere were Mr. Dolbeer Smith, with his hve manly sons: to his left were Guy Zimmerman, the once famous prize fighter: Ralph Cinther. sporting editor of the Beacon Journal, and Rev. lclarold ll. filemiriing, of the Zlst Congregational Church. I35 In the center of the large auditorium was the official Ping Pong table. It was two yards wide by four yards long, and was of ebony. The net was stretched across it, and everything was ready for the game. At 7 :45 out came the Buchtel representative, Leo Jackson, Jr. At the sight of him the Buchtel section rose as one man and cheered for five minutes. He bowed gracefully, and walked toward the table with a spring dis- tinctive of the strong type of American Ping Pong athlete. Closely wrapped about him was his varsity bathrobe, a bright yellow, with a large B running the entire length. Jack- son, Jr., was built something like his father, tall, graceful and strong,-every inch of him muscle. The Sloberlin player was built on the order of an ancient foot ball hero. I-le was slow and deliberate, and did not seem to have any real Ping Pong actions, but not- withstanding this fact, he had gone through the entire season without being defeated. The championship would go to the school winning two outof three sets, and each man had determined to do that deed. At 8:00 the umpire strode to the center of the Hoor and made an announce- ment. "Ladies and gentlernenf' said he, "tonight we are assembled to witness the game which is to decide the championship of the Middle West. Buchtel College is represented by Leo Jackson, Jr., Sloberlin by Richard l-loddinott. According tothe rules of the game, the audience must' maintain perfect order and decorum, lest the combatants become flustered, and perhaps miss a stroke. All yelling, singing, and playing of the bands will kindly be postponed until the intermission." The players then stripped off their bathrobes and stood before the audience in their scanty Ping Pong garments. The men took their places at opposite ends of the table, and all was ready. It was Jackson's first serve, at the blow of the whistle he raised his arm, and as the paddle struck the ball, the game was on. The first Hve minutes of the game were slow, each player was feeling for the weak points of his opponent. It could be seen from the start that the match would be close, but jackson had a serve that would fool Al Coy. It was a sharp cut, and the ball, instead of bouncing toward Hoddinott, bounced directly away from him. At the end of the second set, the honors were even. Both were well-nigh exhausted. Their faces were pallid and drawn, and their muscles twitched from the fearful strain. The game was at its climax. Jackson had just raised his arm to serve another high- ball, 'when Bang!-Crash!-the elegant sixteen-story structure dwindled into the form of the gymnasium we knew in the days of yore. Ye gods! could it be the same? Yea, even so. Uust then my head hit the bed-post with a resounding noise and I woke up.D 136 u-l ' v4 't Nl NAM li Buclamnn lfelmr lsrunce Lleer C-intlrer l lannes I llnde l litclrcovk Mttnkin Ons pcm...

When you answer this, address me at Curtis Cottage, for that is what this place is called. It is very interesting here,-even for a cat. We do not often have fish and sometimes stray dogs manifest a fondness for sitting on the porch. These are the most disagreeable things I have to endure. ' Let me tell you about the girls. There are about sixteen of them, I think. The other day I went upstairs on a tour of investigation. I started at the farther end of the hall, and, of course, walked just as quietly as I could. Luckily the door of the first room was ajar and within sat two whose names I learned are l-lelen and Bess. While I was inspecting the room and admiring the neatness thereof, I heard the girl called Ethel, who lives across the hall, say something about rats. I listened attentively and this is what I heard: "Oh, Betty, isn't it awful to have rats right here in our room?', "Why, Ethel, we haven't any rats. They're just micef, "Yes, but mice grow up pretty quick, and then they'll be rats." Tabitha, I just stood out in the hall and leaned against the wall and laughed. I am mighty glad my knowledge of rats and mice isn't so limited. After that, as it was nearly supper time, I had time only to examine the other rooms quickly. Harriet S. and "Grandma,' CI believe her real name is Catherine, live in the next room. The trunk room door, which I had to pass in going to Leona's room, was closed and I was disappointed, for the name sounds interesting., I didn't take time to look into Leona's room, and only glanced hastily into the end room, occupied by Marjorie and Eleanor. Harriet D. and Lillian, who live in the corner room across the hall, were in there, and in the spirited conversation which was being carried on, I could catch the names of Otto and Phil quite often. The one named Lillian looked a little fussed, but I couldnlt get the drift of the conversation. The next room belonged to "Heine" l38 and "Slats." I examined this pretty carefully. when I noticed it opened out upon the porch roof. Their window may be a convenient place for me to enter sometimes. I was just going up on the third floor to inspect l-eah's room when the supper bell rang. and I fairly flew downstairs, for believe me, iliabitha. I get almost as hungry as these girls do. Next time I shall write more. Oh! these girls say the funniest things: some of them me W0 funn? to Wfflc about. so that I never dare write as funny as l can. .-Xnswer soon to, Your affectionate cousin. 'I'iios1,xs ji-1 if if iznsox C,vi'ii'ia. Dear ffousin .' Xvcll, Sunday has gone, and here it is "blue" Monday again. But not exactly "blue" Monday for me, because I have so many pleasant thoughts when I recall yester- day's happenings. First of all, we always have chicken on Sundays, and yesterday there was ice cream, too. But the best thoughts come when I think of Sunday night in the "dorm." parlor. It is great sport to be on the outside and look in. At hrst, after the boys are ushered in. there is an air of boredom, but, after a time. this passes away. and a Sunday-like gayety lends warmth to the scene. And, 'Iiabitha. let me tell you what I saw last night. 'lihey were all sitting there. laughing and chatting, when one of the boys CC-ravy or Davy, I think they call hirnl. walked up to one of the electric lights and turned the bulb until the light went out. Some- one asked him what he was doing. and he replied, "Oh, I am just having a little light ex- ercise." He and that tall. light-haired one are always saying such unusual things. But speaking of the "dorm" parlor reminds me. One night the German Club met there. lfverything was progressing nicely and I had become tired of watching them and was curled up and almost asleep on one of the dining-room chairs. Suddenly I heard stealthy footsteps on the back stairs. In a moment two hgures entered the dining-room. and in the hand of one was a round object. By this time I was wide awake. I sat up very straight, and to my intense surprise saw one of the hgures kneel down on the floor near the dining-room door, which is directly opposite the parlor. I tell you. I blinked considerably, rliabitha, when that girl with all her force sent that round object bounding straight into the parlor. W'ell, it was only an orange which she had thus hastily sent into their midst but, Oh! the excitement that little thing created. lfor it appears than there was an awfully funny joke written in black on the orange. Xvhen the professor dis- covered that there was writing on the orange, and read "l'laben Sie die ganze ldee?" in a large voice. I thought some of those German flub members would collapse. ilfhat orange had certainly performed a cheerful mission, and it did my heart good to hear the mirth. The professor. however, was strangely silent. Now, why was that. I wonder? Usually he is so quick to sec the laughable things. Now, just see. I have taken all the time to tell of this and I wanted you to hear about ----f---M- - but, so long. I shall tell you some other time. l-ove to the whole dear family. Toss. l39 Dear Tabitha: . Supper is over, and oh! what a good time Ifve had. I,ve been listening to' those girls. As frequently happens, they were discussing their home towns. The girl from Geerard started it by saying, in a subdued tone, that she didn't know what would become of her town since it had lost its leading industry. She went on to explain that the mop factory had burned down. This caused the girl from Cleveland to sniff the air and begin a recital of that flourishing city's industries. Something she said reminded the girl from Griskany of her home town, and once more the girls listened politely to the story of the battle of Oriskany. I know she was going to tell about the Barge, and also the Erie Canal, which pass through there, when the girl from Leroy interrupted by announcing that, since she had come to college, there were only ninety-nine inhabitants left at Leroy. Then the girl from Corry, in a slow and dignified manner, started to tell of that city,s wonderful superiority in every direction. I felt just like taking notes on what she said, be- cause everything was told in such an orderly fashion, for' all the world as if she 'were reciting from a catalogue. Then just as she mentioned Lake, the girb from Barberton immediately began an elaborate description of Lake Anna, and then, having once got possession of the floor, described Barber's Model Farm and the Match Factory. The word "lake" had made the Canton girl think of Meyer's Lake and when she got a chance she told of the McKinley Monument, The Dueber-Hampden Watch Works and-, but just here the girl from Urbanie woke up and told of the University of Urbana. Her audience really seemed to need enlightenment on the subject of this important university, and they listened with ever-increasing wonder until the Randall girl happened to think of the race track there, which is so important that all the Clevelanders flock thither. The girl from Chicago Junction had been waiting a long time to tell how many railroads her native town had, and she had just begun a complicated explanation of how she was able to live in the very heart of the city and yet was only a half a block from the country, when the Maine girl of the cottage jumped in and in a humorous way described town- meeting day at South Berwick. Now it happened that the three Kent girls had been very patient during all this. Finally they could contain themselves no longer and, just as the girl from Maine began an elaborate description of South Berwick Academy, they burst forth in a magnificent triology in which the words state normal school, beautiful scenery, and school of forestry figured prominently. As their discourse promised to be quite lengthy, the matron headed them off by relating a few of Akron's glories. At last supper was over. Everyone felt well satisfied, for each had had her little say. Everyone had made a speech, really, except me, and I promptly went into the kitchen and made mine to the cook. It was to the effect that I had waited a long time for my supper, and wouldn't she please serve me at once? Why, Tabitha, it is 'way past my bedtime, so I'll have to say good-night. Your loving cousin, TOM. 140 Elie Svtuhruts' Ilurnatnrg "And why do you conduct me thither?" I inquired of the Wiise One. "This," he replied. "is what is technically known as Purgatory. .-XII students fre- quent it, some in triumph. but most in grief and remorse. Co in: keep cool. and do your best." He was a wise-looking fellow--short and fat. and dressed in a light gray suit. llis hair was white: his eyes. deep-set. beamed from under dark eyebrows over his spectacles. perched half-way down his nose. A cheerful face with a ruddy complexion completed his make-up. We reached the door at the end of a hall, which was guarded by a stern-looking woman with spectacles, who pushed me in. saying. "Don't talk in the hall: don't talk in the library." I looked around. O, what a Babel! The room had skylights. through which the sunbeams glared. "Thousands of students," the Xvise One went on. "are here being questioned. ex- amined and punished. You notice the elevated seats around the sides? On each of these sits a judge. There are twelve or more. and I am the chief. I will leave you now, until you learn your fate." He left me. and went back through the door. probably to bring in another culprit. I was trembling and bewildered, but managed to make my way to some people I recog- nized. Suddenly I felt a power drawing my gaze, and. turning, met the piercing gray eyes of one of the great judges. "ML ---," he said, "Who was called the wisest chump in Christendom?" Hardly had I gathered my senses before he said: "'Iihat's right, james I. You didn't recall it? Next!" Mon Dieu! But I had no time for regrets. Students all around me were flunk- ing. I was in for it, and could know no more rest. "Describe the way a trained ape scratches his ear. and handles a knife and fork. and how this illustrates the Darwinian theory." floated down to me from an elevation on which sat a tall, thin man with a white jacket. I turned. and began to rattle off what I hadn't forgotten. "Stop!" he commanded. "I see you didn't attend the entertainment, or else failed to observe carefully." I turned away in despair. Next I encountered the eyes of a little short judge. "Give full information about the Elizabethan drama. and tell how Bacon wrote the so-called Shakespearian plays," he demanded. Words failed me, whereupon with a frown he turned me over to the mercies of a short. brown-haired lady, who said: "Read this subject for debate, 'Re- solved. That Freshmen have rubber necksg' stand up. repeat it hfty times. and use no word twice." But I flew the coop. only to be confronted by a tall judge with piercing eyes, a gray goatee, and a mocking smile. I-ll '60, chief flunker, give an example of I-lorace,s use of an Asclepiadadonaiclogaoe- dicpentapody. , ' Confound those infernal Latin meters! To save my life I couldn't think of one. My brain was in a whirl. I could hear voices prompting me, but I passed into the crowd, and stayed in a dark corner for a moment, watching the others and trying to pluck up courage. What a concourse of wisdom, and what a small portion was mine! At length I emerged from my corner. ,Someone tapped me on the shoulder. Looking up, I beheld a young man withdark eyes and hair. I-le commanded me to say Hschlectes Pflastern nine-arid-ninety times. 0, unmanageable tongue! I felt my sight growing dim, when suddenly a tall, slender lady with black hair and dark eyes confronted 'me. F or a second I was overjoyed, but alas! she gave me twenty pages of Racine,s "Andro- machen to read in fifteen minutes, meanwhile telling me I smelled of utabacf, and ought to air off. I mutely stared, but, as I looked, she vanished, and the same strange power drews my gaze upward to a venerable-looking judge, surrounded by various kinds of chem- ical apparatus. He propounded the riddle: 'cWhat fearful mixture caused the smell in the hall the other day, and could it beat Limburger cheese and I-PSV' I didn't stop to answer, as I saw his assistant making for me with some I-IQSO4 and KCLO3, and I hiked, for I wasn't yet ready to be blown up the golden stairs. The great crowd of students seemed to merge into merely a moving massg the voices grew into a sound like rushing water or a Freshman class meetingg the lights dis- appearedg the air grew damp and chilly, a gust of wind whistled by with a mournful sound, the Hoor opened, and I sank down, down, down. Then a faint glimmer of light shone from some invisible place. ' I 1 A mighty strain of wierd, slow and solemn music sounded in the distance. What was it? The ghostly melody seemed familiar. Ach, I-limmel! It was Gottschalk's "Last I-Iopef, Was this my last chance, then? Well, I must make some showing, so, throwing off as much of my nervousness as possible, I proceeded. The dim light grad- ually brightened. A short, solemn judge was awaiting me at the foot of the stairs, who frowned when I appeared. As he led me to the scene of the last act, a voice seemed to whisper in my ear: HA!! who enter here leave hope behind." Tall cupboards, filled with many kinds of instruments of torture, rose on all sides. Looking at me steadily, he pounded the table, sawed the atmosphere, and exploded the following: "Vot isis der number of food-poundts of work required to make 'Ref Zimmerman able to kick Criss der campus off, if adted to der fact dot he iss nod able to lick Misther Johnson or Misther Jeffries, der resuld iss a draw, von being afrait und der odder 'dassent-, " But before he could add any more points to this wonderful problem, something rose and smote me in the back-and I awoke to find myself on the Hoor.

CL'R'l'AI N. I 45 Jnaiah emit Samantha Hiatt Eurhtrl J Josiah and me laid out we'd go down to Buchtel to visit our son, Jabez. Jabez' been there now three years come September, and Josiah and me haillt f1eVef been to See him. Jabez writ us about the "I-Iopf' the big doinis at the college, and Josiah sez, sez he, "Samantha, now'll be the time to gof, S0 We sot Sail- Wall, the college stands on a hill. As we come up, I sez to Josiah, sez I, "Mercy, Josiah, what do you 'spose they do with all 'em seven buildings?" HSamantha," sez he, "I don't know, it's beyond me." Wall, we hunted up the President, and he seemed real glad to see us, and asked us to come to his house and stay. I-Ie said Jabez lived at a Fraternity I-louse, and moreln likely wouldn,t have room for us. Wall, we made a tower of the buildin's. I-Ie took us through the Prepar'tory and the Dorm'tory, and showed us theechemistry Buildinf Then we went into Buchtel I-Iall. Well, these col- lege fellers do take to the funniest things. There wuz one man on the second Hoor who wuz cookin' somethin' and Dr. Church sez he spent his hull time cookin' germs and picklin' bugs. There wuz a human skeleton. Dr. Church sez they use it for medical work. While Dr. Church and Josiah wuz a talkin,, I went around and looked at the collections and pictures. There wuz a lot of names on a gold tablet at the head of the stairs and marked with l900. I wuz gazin' at it and thinkin' howysad it must have been to have all them young people die in one year, when the bell rung and Josiah and me went to find Jabez. We found Jabez with the Physics teacher, and he seemed real glad to see his father and me, only I noticed he didn't kiss me as usual. Wall, Jabez said he,d be busy gettin' ready for the "I-Iop,,' and he wouldn,t have much time to spend with me, but he took his father over to his room, and talked over money matters with him. 1 I guess it wuz money matters. I couldn't find out much from Josiah, he is so sot in his ways. Josiah went down town to get some white gloves and a pique vest that Jabez thought he oughter have. And I spent the afternoon talkin, to lVlis.' Church. She didnlt know nothin' about Jabez' school work, and she didn't seem to know much about the students. But she said they weren,t graduatin' any ministers. Wall, about eight o'clock all on us started for the party. Josiah looked real well and I had on my black satin dress with a battenberg collar. As we wuz goin' up the steps a han'some buggy druv up and Jabez and his gal got out. I didn,t know he went with a rich gal that could afford a buggy like that. Jabez interdooced her to Josiah and me and we all went in together. Josiah wuz tickled to think his boy wuz so popular. Josiah always loves a pretty gal and I do, too. She wore a thin veilin' dress, made up over pink, and she had a pink sash, but it had slipped down to her knees. I noticed it wuz a little too tight, but goodness knows, she couldn't fix it then. She acted as if nothin' had hap- pened, and made the best of it. I-lattie,-that wuz her name,-stayed with me till Jabez come to get her to lead a drill. Jabez wore a dress suit and white gloves. I didn't know he had one, but I suppose Josiah got it for him. I-lattie didn't seem to notice her sash, she had to walk real slow, and Jabez hung onto her so she didn't fall, but I knew she wuz terribly upsot. The drill wuz real pretty. There wuz little hearts that waved Over- head, and the house plants and palms wuz a-swayin' to the music. Nobody wuz settin' I46 I down. so Josiah and me stood up, too. l wuz afraid the girls would take cold. but hlisf Church said they always dressed like that tor parties, and she guessed the-y'd be .ill right. Jabez acted real hne. and l wuz just noticin' how improved he wuz, when .ill .it once everybody started off a-swingin. round and round, .ind l reehzed for the lirst time that this wuz a dance. And my Jabez wuz dancin'. too. .-Xnd me a Methodist. and .i member of the Jonesville meetin' house! l turned to Josiah. and he wuz real pleased ov er it. l le sez. sez he, "Dumb it all. Jabez is among the upper ten. and he is hound to be fashion- able." Xkiall. l asked Misf Church where Jabez went to church. and she didn't know. l didn't say no more, but l wuz all broke up so that l didn't enjoy the rest of the evenin'. Jabez' roorn-mate come up and helped me to refreshments. ilihe lemonade smelled as if it had spirits in it. but he said nothin' like that wuz ever served. Xkall. Josiah and me went home airly. not being used ter late hours. 'lihe next mornin' l thought l'd go over to Jabez' room and darn his socks, and straighten 'round. l met his room-mate a-goin' to class, and he tried to take me with him. but l wouldn't be switched off. Jabez' room smelled of tobacco, and was dredful mussed up. Jabez never would pick up his things. lhe other feller didn't seem much better. neither. lint. land. l didn't careg l jest sot to work. ilihe desk was in an awful fix. l picked up the papers and bills l found scattered around. l guess some of them hills must have belonged to the room-mate. 'lihe hrst one said. "l box -folonial. 55.00." Xvall. now, what kind of a box do you 'spose he got for f55.00? l didn't see nothin' of it in the room anywhere. so he must have taken it to school. The next just said. "l"leepe's, I'B2.00." 'lihat was more'n likely the name of a htm. but I couldn't figure out what he'd boughten there. 'lhere wuz another that said "l-owney," but l couldn't make out whether it wuz a text-book or a hrm. l never knew Jabez wuz so particular about his caps. ilihere wuz a bill for a cap at Dickson's that cost 53.00. 'l'hen there wuz a bill for a pump that cost Z5-3.00. Xvhat do you 'spose he needs of a pump? 'lihere wuz one bill from 5tickle's that said, "Course Sl0.00, private 55.00" Sez l. "XVho's Stickle's. and why should it be private?" l suppose it is extra lessons in math- ematics. Jabez always wuz poor in mathematics. Jabez' room-mate had an awful lot of pipes, and I never see so many shavin' mugs. Xkfall, when l got everything shipshape, l went back to the Presidents house. Jabez come in time afternoon and sott and talked a spell: I asked him if he thought he'd make a scholarship, and he sez Physics is the only drawback. I asked him about his gal, and if he thought she'd be able to put up with country life. l'le said he hadn't thought about it as he hadn't known her very long. Xvall, we all on us went to the basket ball game that night. and such a thing l never see nor hope to. Somebody had put up two shoppin' nags ripped open at the ends, and they all tried to put the ball through them bags. 'lihe fellers weren't more'n half dressed. and l wouldn't have any of the Jonesvilluns know I wuz there for the world. XVall. Josiah. he took a notion that somethin' wuz wrong to home, and we come away airly next mornin . I-47 with Ihr Minn Clbnria M. Alton-A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance H.

So liar the symptoms hav e defied the efforts of the doctors to diagnose the disease: so, for want of a hett-'r name. they have called it insanurn capiti versicufis. and as such. noted it in their journals. If you will think hack. perhaps you will recall that ahout a week hefore the lfehruary exams. the dorm. girls maintained an ahsofute silence in class-rooms. lihrary and chapel,-as-something hitherto unknown. Nowhere were they seen to converse except in little groups among themselves, or along the hack row in Psychology class. illhe Professors were sorely trouliled at their daily refusal to recite, and at length a special faculty meeting was called on this account. Professor Spanton was the first to speak. lrle told of Miss liirances coming into his office after four tardinesses in one week with this somewhat peculiar explanation: "l hope. Professor, you will in my excuse take stock: my tardiness, as usual. is due to a run-down clock." ilihen Professor Rock- well related how Miss Rothenhoefer had whispered to her sister: Nlihe columns in that temple are not in a straight rowg l wish l had the courage to rise and tell him so." lliliereupon Miss 'liillson said that she had heard lfthel Daives on the front steps calling to Miss llart: "l can't say it in prose, hut I'll say it in rhyme: 'l fave a good time. Hess, have a good time.' H 'lihis unusual method of speaking so interested the faculty. especially "Daddy" Olin and Professor lliefeld. that they proposed investigating at once. The Preceptress was asked hy telephone to confer with them, hut these were the words that came hack over the wire: "f've had the grippe, much to my woe, and my doctor allows me nowhere to go." lt' there had heen douht as to what was necessary. at least, after this. they did not hesitate. Professor Biefeld hurried away to his workshop. from which he returned in a few minutes with a machine somewhat resemhling a phonograph. ilihis, he confided to "Daddy," who was waiting for him, they would get the janitor to put at the foot of the hack stairs, and it would record the conversation at the supper tahle. ilihe next morning he could hring it hack and the faculty would know everything. But, alas, the following day it was discovered that the inventor of lfte wonderful machine had constructed it too hastily. ll-he hreakfast conversation was recorded over that of the night hefore, so that only the latter part of the supper tahfe talk remained intact. ilihe instrument started up with a deafening roar, and the laughing and chattering con- tinued for tall fifteen minutes. lhen the listeners were astonished to hear: "f've dreamed it three nights in succession: it's as plain as plain can hey there sits my waiting widower, with a child on either knee." Mlle. Plaisance and Miss Xiilson exchanged glances, and were desirous of hearing more. hut then a huuing hegan which continued for a moment, then hroke off with this surprising conversation: "l'feinie. dear, to me please pass, the cake plate there right near your glass." "Oh, he it cake or he it pie, for which. f.ucile. you just now sigh, right there and nowhere else it'll set. for l'll haw you know it nirfi passed yet!"

"Now, Harriet, be patient, we are almost nearly fed, but Grandma's eating cranberries and l'm eating sugar breadf, f Dr. Brookover rose quickly, and with one sweep of his arm knocked the machine to the floor. Standing in the midst of the ruins, he thus addressed the others: "Fellow members of the faculty, you don't realize the danger you're in. Just five minutes more of that abominable jingle, and I shouldn't have been able to talk sensibly myself. I think as a special precaution it would be well for us each to read up some good prose essays-say Emerson's or Lamb's--over Sunday, and, meanwhile, we can be thinking of what we can do for the relief of those poor girls." "I have the idea!', said professor Bulger. "We can all spring exams. on the same day and ask questions no sane or sober person could possibly answer in verse. Thus the affair will be settled with little effort on our part." Three days had elapsed. The faculty was once more assembled in council, but this time they were discussing the success of their recent exams. Only Professor Simmons was not present. just as someone was remarking upon his absence, the door opened, and he entered, looking strangely agitated.

I8I l T TT The Good We Nature gives oats more digestible protein- moie organic phosphorus- more lecithin- than to any other grain that grows. ,As energy-givers oats stand supreme. To people-as to horses -they supply vitality. . Protein is the body-builder. You know the Scotchman's racial fame for brawn and height-built largely by the protein in oatmeal. Protein feeds the muscles. The average man at the average work uses up 32 ounces of protein per day. Phosphorus is the brain's main constit- Get From Gets uent--the food for thought. Lecithin is the chief component of the nervous system. In all these essentials oats are our rich- est grain. They supply this wealth of our chiefest foods in perfectly balanced form. Thatls why the child who studies craves oatmeal. That's why nervous people like it. That is why brain workers, almost uni- versally, consume a great deal of oatmeal. And that is why muscle workers show more endurance when fed on it. Within us all some natural instinct creates a desire for oatmeal. All normal people love it. 45 i ,tif 4 I u lkier alas Just the Cream of the Oats The Hnest oats that grow are sifted 62 times to get the grains for Quaker Oats. We get but ten pounds from a bushel-just the richest, plumpest grains. These choice grains, when prepared by our process, form the most delicious, most nutritious oat food ever made. Yet Quaker Oats, despite this quality, costs but one-halt cent per dish. Lovers of oatmeal should insist on it. ti! , x i Regular size X 1 QQ, 7 package, 10c fli , ii Family size package, for smaller cities and country trade, 25c.
