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.

Doth lead upon the Dorian lyre
Q The fingers dumb of him whose heart
LJ S59 Doth cherish all thy subtle art--
To please the gods his deep desire
Now listen well unto my lay,
Ye who in classic pastures stray,
For not a common song I sing,
No common sacrifice I bring
The Muse's altar:
But loud and clear,
And far and wide,
Shall echo o'er the countryside,
The tribute dear
To Alma Mater.
Let others sing the nation's fame
Or sing of riches, power, and name.
Or let their fingers swiftly dart
Along a golden-stringed harp.
And let their songs to heaven soar
Loud paeans grand forevermoreg
Let other arts engross them still:
Let other themes employ their skill:
But let them grant my feeble hand
The bidding of the choral band.
The theme inspired of Joveaus' daughter
To sing: All Hail, O Alma Mater'
All Hail. O Alma Mater!

OUR work on the Annual of l9II is finished. lt has
been a labor of love for old Buchtel, and we offer it to
you with the hope that it may prove a fitting record of
a splendid year.
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.

NYZ WAIR Buchtel, our days with thee draw to a close
gli f LA With their wealth of bright memories dear,
I Yet at ev'ning the sun shines as bright as it rose
Wi On the morn of our college career.
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.
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.
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,

'gtizffki HISTORY of 1911? That would require more eloquence than our
'gg Qs very professors possess. 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,

Sometimes ltnown as "Grandpa" Kind. lalherly

mind, with a tendency to analyze his failures and suc-

always prepared themes for Rhetoric. "Grandpa" has
lately discovered that there are girls on Buchtel lalill.

We always know when he is approaching. Fond of

Very worried and important personage. Specialized in-

but we can always guess what he means to say.

Quiet, dignified. Won his sheepskin in three years,
omitting most of the frivolities of college life. Makes
the rest of us straighten up in an involuntary attempt to
come up to his standards. Never been known to swear.
Has a legal mind. The kind that will make good.
Probably twenty years from now he will be declining
interviews with the rest of us. Solemnity, black hair,
black cloth proclaim him the chaplain of the class, and
yet-he likes to dance.

Looked we without a fear,
5 On the day drawing near,
,E Called Junior l-lop Day.
Free was the life we led,
No care for us ahead,
in our Freshman year,
No one to us had said
One word of l-lop Day.
But as we older grew,
Wiser and thoughtful, too,
Knowing what we must do,
When we were Juniors,
With but one view in mind
We wanted them to find
Our I-lop, best of its kind,
Now we were Juniors.
Geer did some Hfiguringf'
Wirth tied the hearts with string
How Hitchcock loved to sing,
Before the I-lop came!
Pete had to fix the light,
Bertha- looked on with frightg
Still held the ladder tight,
The day the I-lop came.
Mari., Slats. and Heinic Fehr,
Stood on a chapel chair.
Pinning hearts here and there,
On that cold morning.
Haines left his lah. at last:
W'ork crowded thick and fast,
Till the worst part was past,
Cn Friday morning.
Katherine and Lillie, too,
Found a great deal to do:
Louise vowed that she was through.
Through until evening.
Banners upon the wall,
Strings of hearts, large and small,
Music that brought us all
Great joy that evening.
Vlfhen the grand march was o er
Fair couples thronged the floor.
Anxious to dance once more:
Ralph was in clover.
'iliwas an eventful night:
All cried, in their delight.
"l-lere's to the Blue and Xvhite
Our Hop was over.
GYCFQDQ l-IE. fall of the year l908 marked the beginning of a new epoch in the his-
lb f tory of Buchtel College. 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
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.

Their hats to our Class Socials doff
Our Socials have been wond'rous things,
Nor have they been without their stings
To envious classes, who, inspired
With noisy lawlessness, desired,
To check festivities, and sweep
Our valiant men to some ash-heap.
'Twas only once that these brigades
Disturb-ed e'en our shyest maids!
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!
Aid came to us, when close to dawn.
Xve trooped across the grassy lawn
And climbed into the wagon gay
To start upon our homewarcl way:
No worse were we for wears and tears,
To early class we came on dares.
Another social. by all classes,
Aided much by common masses
From A. H. S., and bummers. too,
Was raided in a fearsome manner.
All under l9l2's Class Banner.
They tied our men at early hour,
But they escap-ed from their pow'r:
And then, that night, some cops, in passing
Were anger'd by the Sophs' rude sassing,
And took them all away to jail.
Where Mayor S. let them out on bail.
It never pays to try to check
Uur socials in the least, by l'lecl:!
Vlfe mean to have our lun: and so.
Take warning. Freshmen. we're not slow! !
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
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.

fg A i faced individuals whom the Upper Classmen scornfully dubbed "Freshies."
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
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

From this time on foot-ball united the school and classes forgot their rivalry in the

I-IALUE TILLSON. Librarian. 1
"A blessed companion is a book-a book that, ftly chosen, is a life-long frienclf, 1
"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
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
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
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.

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.

Watch for Buchtel's Championship Track Team next year, if the campaign proves
T he Track management at present is busy planning a campaign, the money of which
will be devoted to a complete furnishing of the Buchtel Athletic Field. A permanent
fence must be built, grandstands must be erected, the grounds must be leveled and a track
must be built.
Owing to the fact that this cannot be completed in time, there will be no track team
this year. However, announcement cards have been sent out to all the High Schools of
the state for a Championship Field Meet, to be held here, under the auspices of Buchtel
College, June 3, l9l l. I
A trophy will be awarded to the winning team, a.banner to the winning relay team,
and three prizes for each event. F rom present indications a good turnout of High School
teams is expected.

It is not difficult to sketch an ideal for the future Buchtel College. 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.
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
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.

"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."

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,
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.
And the wrathful dance committee
Deeply swear to have their vengeance
When the world shall least expect it.
'lihat will sialic the entire college
lo the depths of its foundations.
'lihree whoc days and nights their wailing
Echoes through the halls of Buchtel.
As the stucients mourn together:
Now the moon is sadly buried
ln the deptiis of dark oblivion:
Now no longer seem the dances
Xvells ot' undiluted pleasure,
And the students sadly, sadly,
Start their customary labors:
C-one is all the mirth and laughter,
All the joy of youths and maidens
In the "Hall ol' liiame and Learning"
At old Buchtel, on the Hill.

lt was on the night of March 3rd, l956. '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.
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

Dear Tabitha :
At last I am nicely settled in my new home. 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
"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"
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.

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.
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,

I looked around. O, what a Babel! The room had skylights. through which the
"Thousands of students," the Xvise One went on. "are here being questioned. ex-

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
"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-

But I flew the coop. only to be confronted by a tall judge with piercing eyes, a
gray goatee, and a mocking smile.

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

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. O, .you Welsh

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'
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.

And ask compassion from those we hit,
Elie Epihriuir at ttir Darin
just as this annual is going to press, we learn that a strange Cpiderme has fm-ri going
the rounds at ilu- Dorm., and that there is no one of the girls who has not de'-efoped a
pronounced case. 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
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
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

I'm two weeks back in my diary, and must read a lot for Lit., to say nothing of Psychol-
ogyhyet here you children sit!" "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. I-le seemed to see no one but the German Pro-
fessor, and shaking his fist at him he cried: "I'll teach you, Charlie Bulger, not to
mention tests to me! I've only to read you this paper, then you, too, will agree, the
affair isn't wholly settled,-But see:--H and immediately he began to read:
I. H 'The physical universe is divided into two distinctive classes, that which we
call' matter and that which we call gases., " '
II. H 'Potassium ferricyanide distills from hydroxyl and zinc. It,s a colorless,
crystalline solid, much used in printers' ink., H
IH. H 'Carbon dioxide, when filtered, makes strong electric light wires, and, if
treated with cold platinum gas, may be used for auto tires. The equation for this re-
action may be written by contraction of-' H
But human endurance could stand no more. The faculty had fainted!
