William Hugi Clarington Bachelor of Philosophy. The class of nineteen seventeen, Found prominence on the debating team. When Hugi tried a place to fdl, For even when vanquished, he could argue still. 61 Senior Pro h esy The night ' s work was over. Two Lieutenants, while waiting to be relieved, crouched in the trench smoking and talking in low tones. " Say, Azar, won ' t it be great to start home next week? " " You bet, Thornton! Just think, home again. " " We ' ll have quite a U. of A. Company, won ' t we? Let ' s see. There is Colonel Mertz in his new uniform. Ollie Driesbach with his seven medals, says he ' s going to apply for the assistantship in the National Bureau of Municipal Welfare. " " Yes, and then there ' s War Correspondent Darrah. He ' s great. Wasn ' t it rich how he got that interview out of the commander? " " In the Red Cross there is Anne Burkman, Rachael Fleming, Helen Mallory and Julia Hardie. They ' ve done splendid work. Only one is gone, Esther Olin. Too bad that the bomb demolished the receiving station and everyone in it. " " Joe Shea is gone to. He fell while at the head of the aviation corps, after accounting for three of the enemies ' planes. " " And Sammy Roth, isn ' t he some plucky Field Surgeon tho! I hear he is to be kept on the National Staff. " Say, Bob, we ' re going home, what are we going home to? Who will be left of our class? I wash I knew what they were doing! " " Dwight! do you remember that Hindoo that I pulled out of the rumpus last week? He sent me a powder which he swears will reveal the future! Wanter try it? " " Lets, won ' t do any harm if it doesn ' t work. " Setting up and lighting the kit lamp, they carefully sprinkled the powder in the flame. Immediately a white pungent vapor appeared which gradually assumed the faculties of a cloudy steel mirror. 62 And across the reflecting surface, flitted the shadowy shapes of the class of ' 17. There was Percy Stansfield, who had helped in the Home Guard, and was still a bachelor, making Wall Street come at his beck and call. And Joe Cushman, head of the Congressional Library, with her keen logical brain, was revolutionizing the library sj stem, and changing it into a most efficient storehouse. Inez Frederick and Dort Quintan were comfortably married, Dort to Mayor Waldsmith, and Fritz to a multi, with vast estates. There was Squibbs skirmishing around to find ways and means to pay off the National War Debt. Fine training class treasurership gives. And Jack Knowlton, after being " disappointed " some eleven times, joined the movies to immortalize some of his bitterly bought experience. Arbie Carlton and Elliott Geisinger had formed a partnership for the purpose of exploiting their new synthetic rubber, and were making quite a success of it. There was Marion Richardson, tremendously wealthy and busy since he won his great case in Supreme Court. Mrs. Simms was chairman of the Municipal Medical Relief. She was most brisk and efficient. While Mrs. Chain was in the State Legislature. W. E. Hugi was in the House, proposing Bills and upholding them witli fervid declamation. Dick Kasch was perfecting a gasolineless auto, which was to revo- lutionize the traffic. Our Lecturer, Helen Pfahl, had been sent to the Tropics to recuper- ate from a strenuous, but most successful tour on the " Superiority of German Masterpieces. " Baldy Santom had long been married and settled as private secre- tary ' to Bert Work. The only minister that the class could point out was Ira Poules. He was pastor of a most flourishing New York congregation. One of the most prominent real estate firms in the st ate was that of Kittleberger, Sammarone and Schaeft ' er. They had branches in each large city, where their work and name were excellently spoken of. The Municipal Bureau of Research had found an able worker in Norris Gable. By keeping house in his rooms, Norris had done away with early ofFice hours. And Arthur Freeder, how carefully he worked in the Efficiency Bu- reau. Hardly could the city get on without him. Jo Cleaver was proprietor of a camp for worn out Y. W. C. A. work- ers, and Nora Tobin was dietitian of New York ' s Nerve Sanitarium. " Relieve Guard " sounded the watch. Saluting, the troops filed out. 64 I 65 unior Class Roll BUCHTEL COLLEGE t Babcock, Mabel Darrah, Kenneth DuRLiNG, George K. Ellsworth, Lloyd FosNiGHT, Reed GiLLEN, Francis Grafton, John E.

Thus, on that beautiful morning nearly three years ago, there sprung into existence, this famous organization and aggregation of intellectual progenies. Wisely and judiciously they pondered over the grave problems that confronted them. The first of which was the contest, for class suprem- acy, between themselves and the second year class. In due time they [)repared themselves and carried off the honors in a way, quite worthy of their noble character. In like manner they spent the rest of the year, concjuering and annihilating everything from Math to problems of the terp- sichorean art. The first year went with no trouble to these dauntless ones and the second came with its store of victories and triumphs. They were fewer in number by this time, from the fact that those who were not entirely able to keej) up the strain were left by the wayside. Again the class contest confronted them and now by brains and not brawn they completely overwhelmed the much larger and stronger force of the Freshmen. But their heads were not turned by such small things and thej turned to their studies to conquer them in like fashion and this they did, with all the honor thereto con- nected. Again they returned to their work, again with fewer numbers and greater dignity. Problems grew graver and Professors grew sterner, but on they went. The winter passed and spring came with all its joys and opportunities. The school was alive from head to toe but most of all our country had declared war on Germany and this ever ready Junior class had a chance to show their ability to help their nation as well as their Alma Mater. 70 sopsomoB s 71 So li omore Class Roll BUCHTEL COLLEGE Arnold, Wendell Babutza, Theodore BiERCE, Bruce Billow, Paul E.

She had so many children, she didn ' t know what to do; A complete lack of brains in each dear little head. Makes the future for all of them, something to dread. So she sent them one time up to old Buchtel Hall, Where they tried to learn something, were it ever so small, And they ' re loafing and playing or else plugging away In the nooks and the corners of old U. of A. Now if you should care to read any more, I ' ll point out to you these Sophomores, for They ' re really an interesting bunch. That ' s " Scotty " Bierce — he ' s president, too. Of all those kids that lived in a shoe. There ' s Neufield, there, who ' s been nicknamed " fat, " But a cub reporter for all of that. Shy Eleanor Marvin has eyes of deep brown, And no one at Buchtel has e ' er seen her frown. Down here ' s jolly Polly, who often beguiles. Her friends, when they ' re weary, with cheering smiles. And Billow there is a real funny guy. On the dance committee — we wonder why! Ward Claire Kremer has a poetic name. And he keeps plugging onward just the same. Oh, Ollie! How( ' s) Happy! She ' s two ways happy. But on Monday morning she ' s always nappy. Say! Who might it be uj) at Boston Tech, That sends dreamy Marie, her mail by the peck. Minnick ' s from Central but Hangs around West, So the question is answered, which girl he likes best. That ' s Fogle down there; has a name like a bird. And such stories he tells, ne ' er before have been heard. Now Christy, there, is a nice little lad. He ' s modest and quiet — he can ' t be so bad. Which one did you say? 74 Sophomore Class Poem — Continued Oh, that ' s that lanky Osborne man. Who rakes in all the dough he can By chasing around right at our heels. He hardly stops to get his meals. So the rest of us Sophs are broke. Camp is a fireman, down at the " Station, " A mighty fine boy, but tough as the nation. Though Gudikunst often helps Brickley out, We still can ' t help think he ' s a pretty good " scout. " That ' s Mar ' Magennis with brown, curly hair, So quiet and cheerful, she hasn ' t a care. Smiling Keppy stands next, who by day and by night, Is teasing all others — her one great delight. There ' s poor, noisy Roland, who ' s quite apt to fall. For any nice girl — but so are we all. And Haley up here is so thin and so pale He could never (?) play football, because he ' s too frail. Right here joking Miriam, quite full of " pep, " Yet she learns public speaking, tho ' ' tis step by step. Makman ' s our fiddler, and makes twice as much noise. As ten common, ordinary, every-day boys. Yes, Hoover ' s a ladies man. Every one knows That he blushes just like a big, red, blooming rose. Sara Bowman, please know, has been nicknamed " Sas, " ' Cause she asks for powder in a pure foods class. Pink-cheeked Ethel Surbey just scorns a vacation, For she takes only " Lit, " and Argumentation. Frank Edith H. will give her opinion, Of the nation-wide question about " votes for women. " Where ' s Holloway? There he is! Quite apt to work, If he doesn ' t just take a notion to shirk. As to Clarence E. Motz, I really can ' t say, But he may be an orator, some sunny day. Whenever a Prof, the name Myers speaks, H. Myers, the one with the nice rosy cheeks. Looks around to see if LeRoy wasn ' t meant. And if really LcRoy, Howard sits back content, For LeRoy you know can crack a good joke. 75 Sophomore Class Poem — Continued But he wishes he ' d studied before the Prof, spoke. Is Spicer a soklier and jokesniith, as well? He doesn ' t act like one, but you never can tell. A quiet young student, a marvel at that. Is Ruttnian, whom I fear will never grow fat. Helen Shaffer, good-natured and smiling — all one. And she says " I think dancing ' s the mostest of fun. " " Hot " Hottenstein, there, is of just the right sort. That the rest can say of him — " He ' s a good sport. " Cabin ' s a fine man, but I really don ' t know If he ' s funny and lively or just sort of slow. Mysterious Ruth, there, has many full dates. And she doesn ' t believe in tempting the fates. Silent Cecelia is always a failin ' . In fact, she ' s so stupid, she needs a good Whalen. Oh, Arnold is brilliant in speech, in book lore. But to draw uj) a curtain, he must needs learn some more. Snider ' s the light in the newswriting class. And in readin ' and writin ' no doubt he will pass. A student, an athlete, a dancer — do tell Why it is that the girls all like Burchard so well. That ' s Wortman down there. He ' s a brother to Ruth, But we all call him " Helen, " to tell the truth. A good stout rope (whenever he ' s able) A responsive cord — just call on John Cable. Don Ross — does he study or open a book? He surely does wear a real studious look. Yon ' vain Mary Thoiuas on Sunday night. Asks, " Now are you sure that my hair is all right? " Friendly Leona is the star of her class. Most certainly, she is a lovable lass. Fairest Helen, ah yes! She is extremely coy. And her smiles proclaim that her life is all joy. With her quiet good-will as she studies each day. Pleasant Irma makes progress upon her way. Yes, Gilbert is bright; but with Purdy, not so, While there ' s not much that Harris, the soldier don ' t know. While Sell worm is renowned for his great mental power, 76 Sophomore Class Poem — Continued He ' s too jolly to study for even an hour. Does jollity count? Does a laugh ever pay? If you ' d watch Louise Taylor, ' twould seem that way. Say, make a bright guess as to who that boy is; He ' s lively and funny and joking — gee whiz! His right name is Werner, his nickname is " Dutch, " But we all call him " Wormzy, " we like him so much. For prowess and skill on the basketball floor, You can ' t beat " Chick " Whalen — been mentioned before. What? Who are those boys down there in a bunch? Just read on a line and I ' ll give you a hunch: They are Bordner and Pollock, quite modest and shy; And " Windy Jim " Thierry whose grades arc so high. And Kuszmaul the Indian, and Siedschlag the great. Glenn Donaldson, there, is from up the state. There are Miller and Vogt, both renowned in football. And young Breen the mighty. Just nine — that is all. See here ! If you spill your brains, Seymour, You ' ll see more brains than you e ' er saw before. Have I missed anyone — have I pointed out all Of the Sophs that are playing around Buchtel Hall? Well ! Each one learned a little to put in his head, Let ' s spank them all soundly and send them to bed. 77 Sophomore Class History If we were compelled, with one word, to ex- press the long chain of events, which both con- stitutes and characterizes the historj ' of the class of double nineteen, that one word would be " progress. " Ever since one bright September day of 1915, the class of the twin nineteens has been the manifest personification of progress. The might and j)o ver of this i)revalent and irresistible progressiveness was first brought in- to action against the Sojjhs in the annual cane- rush. Of course, this progressive organization captured all the canes, but the decision by some kind of a " heads 1 win, tails you lose " scheme, went to the Sophs. Thus continuing the spirit of progress, the march of events soon brought to realization the dawn of another college year. This year ' s detiant freshmen dared to present a challenge for a contest in the form of a tug-of- war with the canal dividing the two classes. The day of the contest arrived. The class of the duplicate numbers so long accustomed to prog- ress never could think of going backward, so forward into the water, with accelerated prog- ress, went the famous crew. Now as the second year draws to a close it finds the Sophomore class still permeated with that same spirit of progress. Its beautiful girls are proving themselves to be real social leaders and organizers as well as brilliant students, while its men by their skill and prowess on the athletic field are daily bringing honor and fame to the fair name of Akron University. 78 Freshman Class Roll Bucntel College Alvis, Harold A.

We assembled in a body at the Ohio Canal where we succeeded in pulling the Sophomores through the slimy water. Then things went along smoothly until the Sophs again swelled up and laughed at our football team. This angered the Freshmen, so they prac- tically annihilated the Sophs, leaving only a piece of shoe-lace. In order to assure us of a hearty welcome the class of ' 19 gave parties at which we were made acquainted with the icy depths of the watering trough. The class has made a fine start and bids fair to make its fol- lowers go some to keep even.

As a means of producing the first result, all new women at- tending the University were entertained at a reception early in the fall. This affair was soon followed by a wiener roast held on the campus and monthly spreads have been held since then. Special entertainments have included a party for the football men and a reception for the Senior Girls of the three local high schools. In order to stimulate interest in school activities The Woman ' s League creates activities. On M. U. A. Tag Day, a considerable amount of money was raised to be put in the fund for furnish- ing club rooms in the Library. A World ' s Fair held in the Gym- nasium and a dinner served to the Men ' s Alumnae Association also added to this sum. In a Municipal University with its many outside interests The Woman ' s League has an important part to play. It furnishes practically the onl} means of social intercourse between all the women of the school and has proven a most effective organiza- tion. 107 Y. W. C. A. Cabinet President Josephinp: Cleaver Vice President Luchetia Olin Secretary Inez Fhederick Treasurer Anna Nall 108 Y. W. C. A. The Year 1917 has brought forcibly to the girls of the Y. W. C. A. the knowledge that to prosper, one must grow. In the busy rush of the year ' s requirements the work of this organ- ization has not been as strong as usual, our field work being cared for the most. This fall Miss Ward called here and we had a delightful visit. She came again in the win- ter, and was then, too, an inspiration to us. Altho the work of the Y. W. C. A. has not been as extensive as usual, we hope that the next year will bring to our organization new force and new life. 109 THE STUDENTS ' COUNCIL President (Senior) Raymond Mkrtz Secretary (Senior) Inez Frederick Senior Perce Stansfield Senior Elliott Geisinoer Junior Clyde Swinehart Junior .Hazel McConnell Junior Robert Rowsr Sophomore .....Bruce Bierce Sophomore Cecelia Wolf Freshman ' . Rolland Fox no Student Cjouncil During the year of 1914-15 there was a great deal of agitation in favor of a Student Council for the University of Akron, and in the assem- bly meeting of April 30, 1915 it was definitely voted to have a Student Council. This organization was to be composed of representatives of the four classes, to be four Seniors, three Juniors, two Sophomores and one Fresh- man. The purpose of the organization was to regulate student affairs. Members were elected at the Student election in May, 1915 and on Friday June 11, had their first meeting, at which Willson Smith was elected President and Grace Lienhard, Secretary. The officers for this year are Ray Mertz, President, and Inez Frederick, Secretary. During the two years of its organization the Council has taken up many matters, such as the regulation of the Freshman-Sophomore con- test; the adoption of the rules regarding absence, which have been in effect this year; the change to one chapel meeting a week instead of two; the plan for Buchtclite management; and the buying of the football blankets. After a two years ' trial we feel that our Student Council is a success and certainly hope that it will long continue as one of our Student organizations.

He has already made a name for himself in the State as an able coach in every line of athletics. Compared with other colleges, the number of men from whom the teams are to be picked is small. Yet " coach " has succeeded in putting out teams that have been the envy of other schools. In basketball he was the main factor in giving Akron a near champion team. His football teams have been unexcelled in conditioning and in coaching. " Coach " is an Akron booster to the core. No one rejoices more heartily than he when an Akron team wins. His fighting spirit, imbued into the men who work under him, have brought them distinction for grit and endurance. " With him at the helm, Akron athletics face a good future. 117 Athletic Association President Robert Rowse Vice president Herman Werner Secretary Percy Stansfield Faculty Manager Like S. Rrickley Crowned by a basketball season wbich all but returned our team as state champions, our athle- tics of the past year bore out the prediction made a year ago. We arc coming on the jump. During the last two years our athletics have shown a steady but irresistible ])rogress. We have seen our teams among the contenders for state honors. Some of the best players of the state were defeated by our teams. In an attitude of retrospect we note the ex- cellent spirit of our players and the steady sup- port given the teams by the student body. Our athletics are in keeping with the other de- partments of our school — getting better every day, and the prospect is as pleasing as the retrospect. 118 119 roothall The 1916 football season was one of develop- ment. When the squad reported in September, it was without a number of the old faces, includ- ing veterans and some of the best material of the Freshman class. And yet Coach Sefton whipped together a team that was a credit to the college. We started the season by trouncing Baldwin- Wallace 53 to 0. Then Fate turned against us and we lost games in which we deserved to fare better. Our old rival. Reserve, considered itself lucky to win from us. The season ended with two victories to seven defeats. The striking feature of the season was the de- velopment of the open style of play. Realizing that our less-than-160-pound team would be handicapped by lack of weight. Coach Sefton developed Akron into one of the big gest expo- nents of the wide-open attack in the state. Competition among the class teams was keen. 120 Schedule and Results Akron 53, Akron 7, Akron 3, Akron 0, Akron 0, Akron 14, Akron 6, Akron 7, Akron 0, Baldwin-Wallace 0. Wooster 29. Reserve 14.

The season was successful and especially gratifying because of the unexpected success. From material that appeared very mediocre at the start of the season Coach Sefton developed a championship contender. An unfortunate ac- cident to Tomkinson, all-state forward, just be- fore the crucial game with Case, prevented us from finishing first in the conference race. Nine conference games won and one lost, is the season ' s record that makes us the second best in the state. Interclass basketball again flourished, and as usual, the Freshmen fought their way to the class championship. The yearlings bid fair to send up some varsity material next season. 125 Basketha Captain John Knowi fon Manager Reed Fosnight Coach Fred Sefton LINEUP Left Forward — " Tommy " Tomkinson Right Forward — " Feck " Kittleberger Center — " Jack " Knowlton Left (luard — Joe Shea Right (iuard— " Chick " Whalen Substitutes — Wortman, Spicer, Boed- icker, Stansfiekl, l owse, Kuszmaul, Cable.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer placed " Ollie " Driesbach, our football captain, at tackle on the first all-conference honorary eleven, and gave Percy Stansfield, our fleet half-back, honorable mention among the best backfield men of the State. In basketball, " Tommy " Tomkinson gained state-wide recognition as a first-class forward, and his hard playing and clever goal shooting caused some of the best critics in the state to place him on the all-conference team. Driesbach and Stansfield graduate this year, but Tomkinson stays with us for another year. 141 vC earers of the A LeRoy ToMKiNsoN — Football, Basketball, Baseball.

About seventy couples usually attended. Schaeffcr ' s Orchestra fur- nished music for the Informals, which the younger, married members of the faculty kindly consented to chaperon. Many alumni attended the dances and noticed the spirit of good-fellow- ship which prevailed and which did much to foster school-spirit. The dance committee wishes to extend its thanks to the student body for the hearty co- operation given the Informals, without which the dances could not have been so great a suc- cess. It is to be hoped that the Informals will continue with undiminished success as these are the only affairs at which the entire student- body may assemble together for a general good time. The greatest benefit of the Informals is that they encourage college spirit and loyalty and love for your old Alma Mater — " The College on the Hill. " The Infornials- October 27. December 15.

It was the first time our class had been intrusted with the sole care of an important school activity, we had to prove our executive ability and we did it. This day being a school holiday, was given over entirely to the students. The program started with chapel exercises in the g ' m., following which the students adjourned to the campus to await the coming of the May Queen and her pro- cessional. First in the procession was Bruce McAdoo, who heralded the approach of the pageant. Then came two boys bearing the insignia of the class, 1917 banners. After them came the processional, composed of all the Junior girls, attired in quaint cretonne gowns and carrying flower garlands. The platform and throne had been erected under the trees. Be- fore this platform the processional halted and made a con- tinuous flower arch under which tlie rest of the procession jjassed. The crown bearer came next, then the crowner Helen Dwyer, then the Queen ' s attendants, Armenia Henne and Hazel McConnell. Following them were the two tiny flower girls, last came the Queen, Marguerite Place. After the pro- cession had gained the platform the Queen was crowned and each class put on some stunt depicting some part of the history of Buchtel. The Seniors buried their Tel-Buch at the foot of their class tree. In the evening a banquet was held in the gym., students and faculty attending. Class yells and songs were given with a vim, each class trying to out-do the other. The happy evening closed with everyone present .singing our Alma Mater. Long live the memories of Tree Day! L51 Founder s Day John R. Btchtel 152 Founder s Day Not for many years has Founder ' s Day been so enthusias- tically celebrated as on January 18th last. An innovation was the holding of the Senior Ashton Prize Contest at the morning student assembly, after which classes were dis- missed for the day. The contest was won by Miss Esther Olin, daughter of Prof. O. E. Olin, second place going to Mr. William E. Hugi. The Faculty, wishing to return the many favors and in- vitations to student affairs received, conceived the idea of in- viting the entire student body to supper at the gymnasium in the evening, a plan which resulted in one of the finest college gatherings ever held on the hill. More than 250 students and teachers sat down at six-thirty to a supper prepared by Faculty members and their wives and served by the younger instructors, dressed to represent cliefs and waiters. The formal plan of toasts was dispensed with, and the company was entertained by Mr. A. E. Hyre ( ' 84) in one of his inimitable after-dinner talks. Mr. Hyre spoke feelingly of his own days at Buchtel and his personal acquaintance with the Founder, whose picture looked down from a posi- tion of honor above the Senior table. Particularly significant was the fact that this day marked not only the ninety-fifth anniversary of the birth of Mr. Buchtel, but also the thirty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the first college paper, the Buchtel Record, by Mr. Hyre. President Kolbe, who presided, read several selections from Mr. Hyre ' s editorials of thirty-five years ago, and later in the evening presented to him the present editor of the Buchtelite Dewey Lidyard ( ' 18). The occasion was celebrated by the appearance of an anniversary number of the Buchtelite which was circulated during the evening. 153 Other Affairs Sept. 22, 1916 Sept. 26, 1916 Oct. 7, 1916 Dec. 1, 1916 Dec. 7, 1916 Dec. 8, 1916- Dec. 11, 1916- Dec. 26, 1916- March 16, 1917- April 9, 1917 April 13, 1917- April 20, 1917- April 27, 1917 May 11, 1917- May 24, 1917- -Rcception to new students in Library. -Mi ' s.

I suppose you ' d rather have the story, but would like to see me " bust " too, wouldn ' t you? Well that ' s natural, but you know, a man is just exactly like a fire cracker, he ' s not worth a cent when he ' s " busted. " Well so much for digression. 1 was going to tell you a story. Oh yes! A story. Well let me sec. Do I know anything to tell you? I thought I did, just a few minutes ago, but I ' ve been talking with George Schworm and I ' ve completely forgotten all about what I was just aching to tell you. Do you know George? Some fusscr isn ' t he? Listen! I ' ve always thought I was pretty good at it, but you just ought to hear about his very latest one. This is absolutely his greatest achievement. Think of it! He made five dates, all for the same evening, and got away with them without causing any serious trouble and without losing one member of his what will I say — Harem or Retinue? Like to hear about it? All right, I ' ll tell you exactly as he just finished telling me. You see the poor man loves the women so much that he can ' t talk to one, without asking her for a date and so last Monday and Tuesday, George was feeling as good as a colt witii his hair clipped, and as usual the co-eds wouldn ' t stay out of his way. Every where he went he met them, small ones, tall ones, lean ones, fat ones, all kinds and some babies Ihey were, at that. Well to abridge an unnecessarily long epistle, Schworm managed to evade them with the exception of five, absolutely irresistible ones and when he came to realize what had happened, he had five regular, life size dates, all for last Wednesday evening. Can you beat it? Five dates for the same evening! Enough to scare anybody, but not so for our friend Georgie. As he walked up Buchtel Ave. that afternoon he figured the whole thing out and had it put down, just how he was going to engineer the deal and still retain his domestic relations of tranquility; " Easy enough, " he said to himself, " I ' ll go out and see Mary Magennis first and I ' ll get there good and early, say seven o ' clock, so I ' ll have plenty of time for the rest, and shortly after arriving, I ' ll get one of the fellows to call me on the phone and have me come quick, for any such reason, as some one sick at home or anything like that. That ' ll do away with one. " And thus he had the whole thing worked out, how he would then get over to 164 A ' ' Swarm ' ' — Continued Votaw ' s as soon as possible and after being there for a while, would play sick and tell Lizzie, that he simply had to leave. By this time it would be eight o ' clock, and he could be over at Floss Tanner ' s house, as sweet as you please. Now you know Floss is a peaceful sort of a kid and will listen to anything, just to keep a quiet house, so he was going to stay there long enough to ask her to go for a walk and when she ' d take him up on it, just as she always has, why he ' d sort o ' steer her over in the direction of Shuberts ' earthly domicile. Now he knows how Minerva always sits at the piano and plays when he ' s coming out to see her and so he figured that he could, in passing, call Flosse ' s attention to Minerva all alone, in the parlor, and just for fun, they ' d go in and call on her. Of course Minerva and Floss get along like two peas in a pod, and George would say, on the side, that he had met Floss on the corner and invited her in just for a prank. Well that would fix four of them, or at least leave him with two out of the way and two to dispose of. By this time it would be about nine o ' clock and something would have to be done about number five, so he was going to have someone call Shuberts ' asking for Floss to come home immediately. Well Floss would have to have an escort and George could be sorry and all that, but he ' d simply have to leave Minerva to take F. T. home. Now then, he ' d leave Floss on the porch of her home, because he wouldn ' t want to intrude, in the event of her being needed therein. After which, he ' d fly to a corner drug store and phone Christy ' s, and in a " much out of breath " manner would explain that he had been out in the country in a machine and having had engine trouble, had just gotten to a phone, but would be over in just a few minutes. " Ha! I ' ve got it, " shouts our hero from Massillon and bounced into the fraternity house as full of joy, as an Indian chief with a dollar watch and a lolly- pop. The time came, as it usually does, and Massillon was on the job, with his plan all written down on his cuff and the swellest perfume you ever laid your nose to, sprinkled on his manly chest, that is on his coat, etc. It was just 7:01 P. M. when he rang the door bell at Mary ' s house and was welcomed, like a prodigal son. Gee! but she was glad to see him, just like they all are, don ' t you know? And Schworm tried to look happy and smiled beautifully, but his mind wasn ' t quite free to dwell upon such things at that particular moment. He found himself in a 16.5 A ' ' Swarm ' — Continued chair. His feet wouldn ' t keep still. His teeth became fond of destroying his nails. He couldn ' t sit still. Something seemed to tell him that the fellows wouldn ' t call him. He spoke of school and study in the same sentence (a horrible misconnection). It was growing late, at least, it was almost seven-thirty when z-z-z-z-zing — a bell rang and George sprang to the phone and hurriedly said, " Hello there Rich! what do you want? Somebody sick at home, I ' m needed at once? I should what? Oh I — I — beg your pardon, I — I — made a mistake — Mary call j ' our father, he ' s wanted on the phone! " George sank into a chair. " It ' s all up, I ' m done for now, " he mum- bled to himself. " What ' ll the girls do to me. I ' m gone, I know it. I ' ll never " there was a break in his raving, as he heard the elder Magennis say, " Why Mary has company, but 1 am sure the girls can come Mrs. X, if it ' s important. I ' ll have them come over innnediately. " George heaved a sigh of relief, but caught himself in time to say that he was feeling a little sleepy for some reason or other and went on to say that it would be all right with him, and that he had a little business with Mr. Votaw, wliich he would attend to and thus he left, too glad to think and too scared to look at his watch. Nevertheless he got over to Votaw ' s in fairly good time and as his plan read he was to play sick this time. Lizzie was all dolled up in one of her beautiful creations, of her original flowing, wind-blown, waist-line just beneath the chin type and she met him with a smile and a twinkle in her eye and everything, and Schworm sat down, as happy as a bee in a sugar barrel. By his cuff, he was to get sick. He tried it, but nothing doing, a man can ' t get sick with a smile on his face, can he? He couldn ' t get serious, but all the same he couldn ' t forget that time was flying and that three other cooing damsels were tinkering on their pianos in antici- pation of his coming. " I ' m not going, I can ' t do it, I ' ll lie , " there was a loud ringing of the phone bell. Lizzie answered it and she said, " Yes, he ' s here, Mr. Magennis, I ' ll call him. " George stepped to the phone and to his surprise, he heard the fol- lowing: " Mr. Schworm, someone just called here, saying that you are wanted at home immediately. It ' s important. " And George, loud, so that Lizzie could hear, said: " Is that so? Is anything very seriously wrong? Well I ' ll be there right away. " Five minutes later he had said how sorry he was to have to go and asked 166 A ' ' Swarm ' ' — Continued for a date and said good-bye and everything, and was on his way to the house of Tanner. Things had gone fine. Even better tlian he could have hoped for, but wait a minute. He wasn ' t done yet. Tlie above abode was readied and the niucli belated caller taken in. " Where were j ' ou so long? I thought my little Georgie wasn ' t coming, but on the other hand, I couldn ' t understand how you would desert me! " (Dots indicate censored portion.) The time kept on going and all at once, he blurts out, " Floss let ' s go over to Minerva ' s house, just for fun. " " Not tonight, George, " said Floss, " Minerva told me she was going to have a date. " " Well what does Oh! she did? — Ah-ah — let ' s go over anyway. I know the fellow and we ' ll pay ' cm sort of a family call, " answered Schworm. " You ' re sure it ' ll be alright? " asked Floss, and proceeded to get her hat and coat. In a few minutes they were at Minerva ' s house and with a bold front the two rapped at the door. " Why George " asked Minerva, " Where have you been? You said you ' d be here at " and then Floss trailed into the room. " Why Floss, where in the world did you come from? " " Where ' s your man? " asked Floss, " I thought you had a date! " " I did " answered Minerva, " and what are you doing with him? " The girls were getting pretty fussed and Floss tried to smile while Minerva couldn ' t help getting a little bit mad. But then the resourceful (ieorge came to the rescue, with: " Minerva let me whisper in your ear? You see I was coming over here and I was held up. An awful looking guy came out at me and told me to throw up my hands. He stuck a gun under my nose and took all my money and everything and then told me to beat it. I ran into the first house 1 came to and it was Flosse ' s. I was scared green and so Floss came along with me, after I got quieted down, she came along with me, she did, for company, she did. Honest, she did. " A smile came across the faces of the two girls and then Minerva said, " Well, I ' m glad you got here, George. Were you frightened by that bad man? " (Censored again.) The piano rang out and the ukalele did its bit too. It was almost ten o ' clock and all was going fine, when Mr. G. Schworm ' s mind drifted to 167 A ' ' Swarm ' ' — Continued the other side of town. It stopped at the house of Christy, and the owner of said mind looked about as lively as a petrified cheese in a stone quarry. " She ' ll kill me. She ' ll kill me; " he shouted, " She ' ll kill me. " " Who ' ll kill you? " asked the surprised girls; " who, who, George dear? Tell us? Are you demented? Are you ill? Speak to us? " " She ' ll murder me. She ' ll " he fell in a swoon and then in what seemed but a moment, he opened his eyes. Everything was white. Where was he? He could see some one bending over him. It wasn ' t Floss or Minerva! No, she was all in white too, with a little white cap on her head. The eyes blinked and opened wider this time and a sweet voice said, " Your in the hospital, sir. Is there anything you want? " " The hos . What . Where am I , in the hospital? " he stammered. " Yes, " she said, " is there anything you want? " " Why — , why — , what time is it? " " 10:32 P. M., sir. Anything else? " " Y-y-yes, hand me that phone please " ; " 4398 please! " " hello, is this you Helen? This is (ieorge talking. I ' m in the hospital. Yes! the hospital. I ' m sick. I ' ve just come to. No not very. I ' ll be all right soon. Oh, thank you. I hope you won ' t be angry about that date. Oh! it ' s awfully nice of you. I ' ll see you as soon as I ' m able, (iood- Bye. " And the very next day he was back at school and ready for it again. That ' s what I call, some " stunt, " isn ' t it. I ' d try it myself but everybody advises me to " Let George do it. " All the same I ' ll try and have that story for you by Monday. Honest I will. Good-Bye Maggie. 168 Buchtel hy doonh ' ght High on a mighty hill Where the winds whistle shrill. Sporting at Winter ' s will. Stands the old college. Where once the city ' s dead Slumbered in silence dread She rears her stately head, Temple of knowledge. Slowly the lights wink out And the dark midnight cloud Throws o ' er the moon a shroud, Closely enfolding. Swiftly the moments fly, Dark on a darkening sky. With walls and towers high, Stands the vast building. Never a fairer sight When the snow, cold and white. Crisp in the moonbeams bright Sparkles and shimmers. When all the windows show. Brightly with lights aglow Which on the snow below Glistens and glimmers. As from the grave a chill Over my spirit steals. Strange thoughts my sad heart fill Like fateful omens. Tell me, 0! college gray, Will there e ' er come a day When thou must vacant stay. Crumbling to ruins? Far be that hated time! Long from thy height sublime Mayest thou behold thy reign Growing and greater. For thee our voices ring. May coming ages bring Thousands, they praise to sing. Loved Alma Mater. ' From the Buchtel of ' 89. The Last Game I. Jim Hogan played football. But Jim was not a star. He just played. In reality Jim was not football material. Tbe eoacb told him four years ago when he started to college, he could come out if he kept out of the way. Jim did not have a rugged physique. But he had a spirit that made uj) for it in some measure. One of his great dreams was to make the team, to get in one big game at least. So Jim practiced. He was out every night. He gave the best that was in him and he gave it unsparingly. There were no scrimmages in which he was afraid to let liimself go. The first year he didn ' t make much sliowing. The next year lie did a little ' better. During the third year he began to have ho|)es. But lie was light, the lightest man out. Jim only weighed 138 and the coach wouldn ' t give him a chance. Undismayed Jim showed U|) at the fu ' st call for practice at the be- ginning of his senior year. He played with such a grim determination that lie had drawn the attention of the coach several times. He had been given some encouragement that perhaps he might get in a game. But the season dragged along and Jim had always been on the bench. Still he played. n. It was the last game of the season. It was also Jim Hogan ' s last hope, Jim was on the bench. The game was the climax of the season ' s playing, the one big game against Bloomfield. Participation meant the realization of one great ambition; inactivity meant — so Jim thought — the death knell of a great ambition and a shattered ideal. The referees whistle was blowing. Jim a few minutes before had seen the team trot out onto the field. He saw McCarty, the great fullback sink his toes into the ball as the whistle sounded. Then he thrilled as he saw a burly giant on the opposing side leap through the air and tackle him. Jim knew what that meant. As a scrub he had tackled McCarty himself many a time. He had bruises yc{, and also some scars from the reckless tackles he had made. 170 The Last Game — Continued Then a struggling mass disentangled itself from McCarty ' s form and rapid formations were made. Jim thrilled again as he saw his team plunge through opposition of Bloomfield for ten yards gain. Every muscle in his body was aching to get into the fray. The game waxed on. As the moments fled faster and faster they marked the waning of Jim Hogan ' s hope. There were tears in Jim ' s eyes as he glanced up through the bleachers behind and saw a girl. He knew, too, that failure to get in the game would mean more tears. He saw a handkerchief in the girl ' s hands, already. All Jim ' s past hopes seemed to marshal themselves before his mind in those few moments. He saw the letter he would never write home, telling his mother and his father how he made the team for the last big game, he saw the fading of the memo- ries he had promised himself of his college days, which now would not be his. HI. A tremendous yell from the bleachers stirred Jim ' s blood and drew him out of his brooding. After fearful battling the score was tied. The team had swept Bloomfield off its feet in the first lapse of the game, but they had come back. Now it was twelve and twelve, a tie score and only 20 yards to go for what meant a victory. Then Jim forgot. He forgot the girl in the bleachers. He forgot his ambition. He forgot the letter he expected to write home. Jim saw the team struggling for victory. Jim became part of the team. Every gain, even of a few inches, came over him like an exultation. Every thwarted play hurt, sent a pain through him as vivid as if he had been in the scrimmage. Jim had no ambition to make the team now. He was the team. He forgot his personal desire for distinction, for the privilege of having memories of football prowess. He simply had all the force of his being concentrated in one thought — the team was going to get the ball over for a victor ' ! Then suddenly it happened. To the spectators it seemed like drop- ping from a great height, this sudden relaxation of tension, after being keyed up to a great pitch in hopes and fears. It was a little trick that did it. And Jim had spent long hours aiding in the mastery of that trick. Day after day he had lain on the ground 171 The Last Game — Continued and held the ball in his hands while Wilson, quarterback on the team, tirelessly practiced place kicks. Many an evening Jim had shivered with cold as he lay there. But Wilson learned to kick. So the game ended. Big Bill King snapped the ball back, on a shift formation, Lanson, right half grabbed it and holding it in position drop- ped on one knee. Instantly Wilson ' s toe connected with it and it soared between the goal posts. Score 15 to 12. A few seconds later the game ended. IV. It was all over. Jim hadn ' t been in the game. No one came to him to pound him on the back or shake hands. No one yelled his name and cheered loudly. Yet Jim Hogan was strangely exuberant. He felt all the glow of a personal triumph. Jim did not get in the game, but — the team won! 172 Isn ' t it strange that princes and kings, And clowns that caper in sawdust rings. And common people like you and me Are building for eternity. Each is given a book of rules, A shapeless mass and a bag of tools. And each must build for himself alone A stumbling block or a stepping stone. 173 The Deans Dih emma A TRAGEDY OF THE CAMPUS IN FIVE ACTS Act I. SC.ENK 1. Scene I is laid in the ottice of the dean, in Akron University. Tliis oflfice is a picturesque phice. Hung about on the walls are framed docu- ments, which on closer inspection are seen to be tabulated lists of tlunk- ers, with the names of the professors who did the deed, afiixed. Where there is a particularlj ' remarkable flunk, a separate document is made of it and it is framed separately. Interspersed with these, are pictures of Professor Rines, Professor Sturtevant and Professor Spanton. At the bottom of these pictures are noticed red marks, each standing for a credit in flunking. Flvery time a professor tUmks ten, he gets a red mark under his jjicture and the honor of having his picture hung in the Dean ' s otiice. Professor Spanton leads with a whole row of red marks; Prof. Sturtevant is next with about ten spaces to fill; Prof. Rines is third with about half the row filled. On the desk on one side of the room are noticed big blue pencils, known to every flunker as the instrument of fixing his doom. In the book case on the other side are numerous volumes, bearing the titles: " How to Deal with Obstreperous Recalcitrancy, " " Records in Flunkers, " " Some Professors Who Have (iained Distinction for Flunking, " " Methods for the Prevention and Extinction of Original Thought, " " How to Turn a College Into a Reform Farm, " and others on cognate subjects. Dean Spanton is discovered standing in the back of the room before his gallery of records. He has his hands behind him and a contempla- tive expression on his face. SPANTON— Alas, what boots it with incessant care, To spy upon the students unaware With painful thought I wrack my mighty mind But the lax loafers when 1 seek to find, And think to catch them talking in the halls, I fail — All me — , the disappointment galls. 174 The Deans Dilemma — Continued And therefore, since I cannot spill ' em And break upon their fair unharniful ways I am determined then to prove a villian. And hate the idle pleasures of the days. Fatuous regulations, I ' ll invent. And rules intended only to torment. The faculty shall be my instrument., like a plague upon the unworthy sent, I ' ll cook up mischiefs at my leisure. Ha ! Ha ! My mind gloats on the pleasure. Scene II. Faculty Meeting. Prcxey is presiding. There are evidences that a question of some moment is being debated. PREXEY — You have heard the proposal of Prof. Spanton to make all men students wear wrist watches and all girls bob their hair to pre- vent tardiness. Now has anyone any more to say. PROF. RIXES (who wears a wrist watch) — My only objection is that if everyone wears them, they will be pretty common about the campus. SPANTON — I might explain that my idea is this: Our rules in this matter of tardiness arc being frightfully infringed upon. I believe that if each man in the institution carried a wrist watch, he would observe the time more frequently and thus not be late so much. The girls un- doubtedly spend too much time dressing their hair and if it was cut off, all this waste of time would be eliminated and they would thus have time to get to school in the morning for seven-thirty classes. My idea is only advanced in the interests of the students themselves. STURTEVANT— I move we adopt the rule. RINES — I second the motion. PREXEY — It has been moved and seconded that we adopt the rule. All tliose in favor say, " aye. " SPANTON, STURTEVANT, RINES, VON JANINSKI— Aye. PREXEY— The ayes have it. Act II. The love lorn of the college are discovered in the hall commiserating each other on the rule that has just been issued by the faculty. Tears arc freely falling from lashes warmed by mutual melting glances. 175 The Deans Dilemma — Continued BALDY SAMTOM (to Norma Linne, into whose eyes he is gazing) My days arc in the yellow leaf. The flower and fruit of love is gone, The worm, the cankers and the grief Are mine alone. NORMA— Be still, sad heart, and cease repining. Behind that cloud, is the sun still shining. BALDY— My love, doubt not that still for thee. My bursting heart is yearning. But still 1 think you ' ll pardon me. My thoughts toward ill, are turning. I can ' t forgive this faculty. The evil they inflict on me. (Glances woefully at his wrist.) NORMA— But think of me. My stalwart prince, Remember those caresses. Don ' t say your love is waning since They robbed me of my tresses. THOMAS— Come into the vestibule, Francis, Where the bright lights never have shown — Come over here into this corner, 1 would speak to you, dearie, alone. Thc3 ' ' re making a mollycoddle of me — This watch on my wrist, is my own. FRANCIS— Oh, doubt that the stars in the heaven above May some night oh Burchard, not shine. But wrist-watch, monocle, any old thing. Still, dearie, my love would be thine. MARY MAGENNIS— (ieorgie dear, now listen here, I ' m off you, George, forever, 176 The Deans Dilemma — Continued You may hide your fist, but I see your wrist, Love a molly — Never! Never! GEORGE SCHWORM— Take back jour love, you jilting wretch, No longer I adore, However fair, shorn of your hair. Bah Jove, I just abhore you. SHAFFER— Oh lovely Miss Marshall To you, I ' m quite partial, But I blush for my lack of bravado, This watch has me puzzled, I feel as if muzzled, The thing makes me really so mad, oh. MARSHALL— I ' m fifty-fifty with you, kid. We ' re tagged; no one would own us. I ' m not a Venus anymore. And you are not Adonis. Act III. The order of the faculty is being enforced to the letter. There is an under-current of ill-feeling among the undergraduates that bodes ill for the powers that be. Students are standing about on the campus in little groups, discussing what action to take. Across the Campus is seen Ollie Driesbach, carrying Mabel Babcock ' s books and in ardent conversation with her. OLLIE — There is no one about this place big enough to make me wear a wrist-watch. I would like to see them try it. Haven ' t I wrestled with a bull? Me wear a wrist-watch, huh! MABEL — Oh 1 think it ' s the meanest thing tliat bespectacled profes- sors ever could think of. I ' ll not cut my hair either, and I ' d like to see them make me. But isn ' t it mean though. There ' s Spanton and Kolbe and Von .laninski now. (Tries to poke a few stray wisps of hair back under her hat.) SPANTON, VON, and KOLBE— (Standing at door to pass on all en- trants. They see Ollie has no watch and Mabel is wearing her hair.) — Oh, here are two of them. 177 The Deans Dilemma — Continued SPANTON — I think it would be a good plan to make horrible ex- amples of them. VON — I ' m with you, Ikey. KOLBE Same here. Dean. (They fasten a wrist-watch on Ollie, and Von gets a pair of shears out of his pocket and snips Mabel ' s hair off. Commotion arises among the students who have been watching.) STUDENTS— Raw Deal! Hiss-s-s-s-s-s. Tyrants! Act IV. Students aroused by the action of the faculty are on strike. When classes began in the morning, not a student showed up. Outside Buchtel Hall they are ganged in a huge throng. There are cries and shouts of noisy disorder. Rogers, Fosnight and McAdoo seem to be leaders of the mob. ROGERS — Students, of the university, who are we? STUDENTS— We are THE university. McADOO — What are we going to do? STUDENTS— Get a square deal ! FOSNIGHT — Who is it that has caused all our misfortunes. STUDENTS— The faculty. FOSNIGHT — Now, fellow students, we are all on a strike. We be- lieve we are in the right. But it ' s up to us to stick together. You all know we have been maltreated, maligned and despitefully used. And we are going to better our condition as inmates of this institution by demanding our rights and getting them. The question is what shall we do? " STUDENTS— Let ' s drive the faculty out. Rough ' em. FOSNIGHT— No, friends and students, lemme your ears, ' The e vil that men do lives after them, A hasty action on our part, perhaps Might cause events that, insignificant. Would like a little ripple in the sea Widen itself until it spread beyond Restraint. Therefore I beg this thing of you — , Let not discretion ' s visage be obscured. And darkened as your angry passions rise. 178 I The Deans Dilemma—Continued You ' ve heard my noble colleague here relate, How each of you must steadfastly resolve, Not to return to class room work again Till all the members of this faculty Resign and quit their posts forevermore. Till all the clouds that lower on our school Are in the bosom of the Ocean buried. STUDENTS— Hear! Hear! We ' ll strike till the last cat is hung. Act V. Scene I. The faculty is meeting. As a result of the stern rule they see that perhaps they have gone too far. Kolbe is seated at a table presiding. Others with solemn faces are ranged in a circle before him. PREXEY — I fear me that we have a serious matter to deal with. TULLER — We have some very fine students. Many of them are quite pleasant fellows. 1 am very sorry this trouble has occurred. BRICKLEY — I rise to a point of order. We should discuss this mat- ter of cheating before we come to anything else. PREXEY— Well, what about it. BRICKLEY — It ' s something awful. I know some of the students copped my tests. Some of the worst flunkers got a hundred. We got to organize a secret service and pry into this. We ought to have some- thing like the Okhrama in Russia. It kept the Russians down pretty well. It ought to work well here. SPANTON— That ' s a good idea, Luke. We ' ll adopt it. (Noises and confusion are heard without. Kolbe goes to window, looks out, and starts.) KOLBE — Dean, come here. Look! (Outside Students have gathered again and are holding a strike meeting.) SPANTON — Now we know they are on a strike. But they will never move us from our high purpose. We will grant them nothing. DR. ROCKWELL— I think the dean is a bit harsh, if I might venture a word. HEZ — Yes, we cannot go into this thing too far. I suggest a compro- mise. KOLBE — The thing has got to be settled. Apparently from the looks of things there is an organized revolt. We do not know what may hap- 179 The Deans Dilemma — Continued pen. Perhaps we had better call in tliose fellows who seem to be at the head of the affair and ask them what they want STURTEVANT— Let ' s do something. PREXEY— Dean, I appoint you, and Ayer, and Miss Stimniel to deal with the strikers. Scene 2. (A noise begins in the hall. Then a riot. A crowd of students marches up the steps in the hall and files around to the door of Kolbe ' s office where the meeting is being held. Others jam the hall below. Doors of Kolbe ' s office open and he and the dean appear. Then other mem- bers of the faculty come out. KOLBE — What means this riotous disorder. FOSNIGHT, ROGERS and McADOO (in unison)— It means, sir, that we have come to tell you the wishes of the student body. KOLBE— Well, we are willing to concede some things to the students, what do you want? P ' OSNIGHT — Concessions won ' t count now. It is too late for that. Nothing but an immediate and unconditional resignation of all members of the faculty, except the ones we shall specify in this paper will be accejited. KOLBE — This talk is foolish. If we cannot talk business sensibly, 1 shall have to order you to disjierse. FOSNIGHT— Hold! Every student in the school is on strike. The whole town is aroused over this matter. If objectionable faculty mem- bers do not resign now, it will only make it harder for them later. You see before you the entire student body. Students (calls to mob below) — What do we want? STUDENTS — Their resignation. KOLBE (Looks worried) — I guess it ' s all up with us. Dean. DEAN — It ' s a severe dilemma, but I believe you ' re right. FOSNIGHT — Here, the ones of you whose names are affixed, sign this paper. It ' s your resignation. (Faculty gets ready to sign.) FOSNIGHT — Now one thing more. We nee d a new head for the college and we have selected one. Prof. Tuller, I have the honor to offer you in the name of the student body the position of president. STUDENTS— TULLER ! TULLER! TULLER! Yaa, Yaa, Yaa. TULLER — This is a very great surprise to me. It ' s very fine of you. 180 The Deans Dilemma — Continued FOSNIGHT— Do you accept? TULLER — It ' s yery fine. I shall be glad to accept. STUDENTS— Speech! Speech! TULLER — We have some very fine students here at the university. This is a very fine thing. FOSNIGHT — Three cheers for President Tuller. STUDENTS— Yaa, Yaa, Yaa. CURTAIN 181 D lary o f " ? " February 3 — Got off a pretty good stunt on the class this A. M. Unexpectedly dropped a test on them that was a corker. Few passed. Will flunk the rest next time. February 4 — Out of red ink! Februar} 8 — Posted a notice that the first eleven theme exercises would be due on the 9th. Have had a great deal of difficulty in making file theme requirements harder this year, but was fully repaid by the worried looks of the students when they read the notice. February 11 — Three men com|)leted the exercises. Will dock the rest 50 ' i . February 12 — Out of red ink! Held my own in argument with R. P. He was right but had to uphold my dignity. February 13 — Have completed my file of emergency examinations. Now, in case I should be taken sick, or die, my assistant has his instruc- tions to fire them at the class until a new |)rofessor is app ointed. Am pleased with the idea. February 15 — H. P. giving me trouble again. Have decided that he stands absolutely no chance of passing the course. February 17 — Have been complimented again by Prof. , on my original method of grading. So simple and yet gives the student no chance to get next. Will confide in you, my dear Diary, how I do it — " Size of student ' s hat, divided by size of his collar (if he wears one), multiplied by number of gold filling he has in his head. If he wears celluloid collars — bonus of three per cent. " February 28 — Out of red ink again ! ! ! March 17 — Department kicked on my red ink bills — told them I couldn ' t mark papers without using it. April 2 — Flunked L. O. She had only answered 47 of the 48 ques- tions in my last monthly quiz.

" Grandma roused from her nap by the fireside, looked sleepily at the children on the floor at her feet. " But Grandma has told you all the stories she knows, " she remon- strated. " Tell us again " said the smallest boy. " Yes, " echoed the older boy and the little girl. " What shall I tell you again? " " Oh ! tell us the one ' bout the party when you went to school, " cried the girl. " Docs that suit the boys? " " Yes, yes, " was the eager answer. " Well, " began the grandmother, " Once upon a time when I went to school, we had a part) ' , a party for all the girls, but none of the boys were allowed to come. It was a dress-up party and we all wore funny dresses and pieces of cloth, masks you know, over our faces so we wouldn ' t know each other. The first part of the evening we danced and it was lots of fun guessing who everybody was. There were Indians there, gypsy girls, girls dressed in Martha Washington costumes and Quaker girls. " " And the clowns, " interrupted Bob. " Yes, and clowns. And I danced with one of those clowns, too. Pretty soon it was time to eat and we started pulling off ' one another ' s masks. But the clowns, the clowns, what do you suppose they did. There were three of them, all dressed alike, with tall caps. We had won- dered all evening who they were, they acted so funny and wouldn ' t say a word. And they wouldn ' t let us take their masks off, but tried to get out the door. But we girls just got around them and pulled them off " anyway. And who do you suppose they were, they were boys dressed like girls. Those boys were so fussed they didn ' t know what to do, but not any more than we were. And just then we heard yells and howls coming from the basement of the gym, that ' s where we had the party you know, and then we knew that some of the other college boys had known about the stunt and were waiting below to see how things came out. That about broke the party up, the girls ran for the dormitory, 183 Fireside Story— Continued leaving the gym and the feast at the mercy of the boys, which was just what they wanted. The next morning the Faculty lectured the boys severely, but all that term those fellows did nothing but laugh at us and tell us how good those " wienie " ' sandwiches and cake tasted that night. " (irandma had finished her storj ' . " But Clrandma, you forgot to tell us who those boys were, who dressed as girls. You always did before. " " Oh yes, children, that ' s so. Well you remember Judge (iritliths, wlio was here yesterday to see Grandpa, well, he was one of them, only then he was known as Jack Gritliths rather than as a retired Supreme Court Judge; and Rev. Penrose, who preaches to you every Sunday, children, he was one of tliem, tlien called " Bill " Penrose. " " And the other one? " asked the children eagerly. " Yes, the other one, he was your grandfather, as you well know. He was then " Eddie " Otis and no one thought he would be as successful in business as he has been. " The story was told, the fire died down, it would soon be time for the children to go to bed. 184 CO(v C ON — BITL i 185 vmir.

" The Five Ages of College Man All the school ' s a stage, And all the studes and co-eds merely actors. Shaping their lives at fashion ' s idle whim. And each one like the others plays his part. His acts being five ages. At first the Freshman, Worshiping blindly at the shrine of power, Burning the midnight oil and fearing tests. Whispering, with bated breath, " Fraternity, " O ' ercome with awe and fear by everything in sight; Then the Sophomore, with his pipe And self-sufficient ways, ferment- ing strife. Playing pool and giving not a damn What the next day may bring forth, cutting class. Laughing in the face of lectures; then the Junior, All absorbed in strange flirtations, breaking hearts. With sweaters, caps, canes, keys and megaphones. Eye ever open and alert for honors, considering always That insert in the Record; next the Senior, A hail good fellow, everywhere well met. But feeling very much his own importance. Exceeding Wise, looking down upon the mob beneath With sagely shaking head. Last scene of all. That ends this strange, eventful history, Is graduation and great oppor- tunity, Sans push, sans pull, sans bull, sans everything. 187 Psychological Momf:nt Fish — " How do you feel to- day?

" The Smart Printer The proprietor of a printing establishment was in the habit of periodically descending to the press room and indulging in sar- castic comment. One of his visits was nearly due when, unfortunately, a youth em- ployed upon the presses appeared with a much discolored cheek bone, the result of a fight the night before. How to disguise the injury puz- zled him exceedingly, for he knew that should his employer notice it, his post would be lost and his character imperiled. Suddenly an idea seized him, and he daubed the part with printer ' s ink. Strangely enough, the proprietor chose that day for his inspection and, having gone through the room commenting on every de- tail, he suddenly pointed to the damaged youth. " Raise that young man ' s wages, " he cried. " He is the only person in the room who looks as if he had been working.

The Donor George and Ethel were married a few weeks ago and returned from their honeymoon to a ducky little bungalow garnished throughout with the usual valu- able but useless silverware and jewelry which kind friends shower upon the newly married. The day after their arrival two tickets for a down-town theater reached them, accompanied by a little scented note, bearing the simple message, " Guess who sent them? " They found it impossible to identify the donor, but never- theless decided to use them. At the end of a pleasant even- ing, they returned to their home to find the place stripped of every- thing. On the dining room table lay another little scented note bearing the legend, " Now you know ! " " What are the passengers look- ing out of the windows for? " asked a nervous lady as the con- ductor came through the train. " We ran over a cat, madam, " said the conductor. " Was the cat on the track? " she next asked. " Oh, no, ma ' am, " assured the conductor. " The locomotive chased him up an alley. " " Wanda is in a quandary. " " What ' s the matter with her?

" Sherman ' s Mu.itary Drh.l Old General Sherman told the truth, we know it mighty well. For military training has a little taste of well. The wav we all parade around in military drill. Would cause an army man to laugh, it even makes us ill. The commander opens up his mouth, but no commands come forth. So half the squads turn to the south, the others to the north. Old " double-quick " sure gets our wind, and as we pant and sweat, Wc vow no more to i)ull a i)ipc, or suck a cigarette. Ye gods! at morn when we arise, we ' re numb froiu toe to knee. And things will never be again, as things once used to be. Three times a week, we marcli until we think we ' ll die. Three hours in every week, hark to Judge and Guy. Calc. and old Mechanics were so bad as this. And when compared to marching, structures too was bliss. Our husky athletes just as well, must walk around and drill. When we get thru, they ' ll need no plow, our campus lawn to till. But after all, this stuff we do is not so awful bad, Tho when it ' s over, 1 tell you, we ' ll all be mighty glad. And as you see us march along, we ' ll all be sure to sing. Hah for the military drill, but — death, where is thy sting? we not " I hear Lefty has a costly suit on at present. " " Breach of promise? " " No— a Hart-Schaffner. " Here ' s to the freshman. So bright and green; Here ' s to the sophomore. So brave and bold; Here ' s to the junior. So good and serene; Here ' s to the senior. Who has grown old. Here ' s to the men. From whom the freshmen flee; Members of our faculty, Here ' s to their conscience. So wild and free; That always allows them To hand out a " D. " Here ' s to you all. Hail to each one; Here ' s to the school. That thinks of more than fun; Here ' s to those. Who think as we; Hurrah! for Akron University. Homespun H o m i 1 i e s — Gabe Toots sez : There ain ' t nothing less versa- tile than a pretty wonum. It ' s all in the bait whether you mean to go fishing, get married, siart a bank or keep on holding your job. Virtue may be its own reward, all right, but nobody ever heard oi it being offered a bonus. The millennium is going to stay right where it is just so long as nine-tenths of us is content to press the button, while the other tenth has to do the rest. The way of the transgressor is full of skiddings and front-end collisions. 193 I 194 CASES (OF CANNED GOODS) Peaches Nail— " Spike " Lucre tia — Jack H.

The Maxims of Metluisclah, the son of Enoch: To know wisdom and instruction concerning women; to perceive the words of knowledge, whereby the damsels of his choice may be judged. 2. To give subtlety to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion in his loves. 3. For the days of my life are nine hundred, sixty and nine years. and I have known much women. 4. I counsel thee, make no manner of personal remark to a woman, unless, peradventure, thou wishest to hear it misquoted in thine ear for seventy and seven years withal. 5. Forget in nowise to speak of her new raiment; but remember also her attire of yore, when thou first met her. 6. A woman without humor is an annoyance; she is as the touch of wet velvet. Slie is as a cigar, whose wrapi)er is torn and the air leak- eth therein; nothing can mend her. 7. I say unto thee: it is easier lo find a pet fly in a butcher ' s shop, than a woman who can sharpen a jjencil. Cmapti:h 11. 1. I have watched her at her work in the cosy-corner, when slie said: Lo, for an hour have I made him to talk of himself; till he think- eth he is the best ever. 2. He shall send me flowers, precious confections, theatre tickets and much cab-fare. ClIAl ' IKH III. 1. Yea as fascinating as a loose tooth is a secret to a young maid. For she knoweth not whether to spit it out or keep it safe; yet she cannot forget it. 2. Better are two left hand gloves, than a man in the moonlight with the wrong woman. 3. A teasing woman is as a s([ueaking shoe, or as when one walketh on spilt sugar. 4. In the game of love there is but one law: Thou shall make neither thyself nor her ridiculous. 5. Verily, I say unto you, many a maid may be kissed in the open who, when her hand is touched under the table will cry: Nay, nay! 6. A woman findeth in her last lover much of her first love; but a man seeth his next-to-the-last love, always. 202 Maxims of Methuselah — Continued Chapter IV. 1. A woman beareth agony continually, yea, she smileth and con- cealeth her pain, yet if a man suffer, the whole city shall know it. Chapter V. Ten Signs of a Woman In Love 1. Son, if a maiden love thee, thou shalt appear handsome in her sight; she shall praise thine eyes. 2. She will accept all thine invitations; she shall have time in plenty. 3. She shall show thee her new raiment and ask thy judgment; and the gown which thou approvest not, she will not wear if. 4. She shall ask thee of thy mother, and thy sister; she shall de- mand a photograph of thy childhood. 5. She shall read the books that thou readest, she shall study thy taste. She shall know thy color and thy song; she shall remember the sugar in thy tea; and the lamb chop thou despisest, will she not offer thee. 6. She shall pick threads from thy garment. 7. She remembereth when she first met thee, and knoweth when thou hast last called. She laugheth at thy jests. 8. She knoweth thy neckties; she heedeth thine opinions and quoteth them to her friends. 9. She giveth thee foolish gifts; and she knoweth if thou usest Ihem not. 10. She readeth thy letters even when they are cold; she knoweth thy step w hen it is outside the door. Chapter VI. 1. A man is like unto a fort in a strange land, easy to capture, but hard to hold; but a woman of virtue is like an eel in a bathtub, not easily to be acquired, yet diflicult to lose. 2. A woman and a mouse, they carry a tale wherever they go. 3. There be three things which never satisfy a woman; yea, four which say not: It is enough. 4. Her photograph; and the fit of her raiment; a novel with a sad end; and the wooing of her lover. 5. Two things a woman saith on parting; yea, three speeches are necessary to her: 6. Lo, I have had such a charming time; and: It is so good of thee to have asked me; and: Now do come and see us. 203 I Written l)y a Freshman LE POISSON D ' AVRIL LA vSCfiNE La scene est dans nn pare, !e i)remier jonr d ' avril, ct .M.

B. or B. S. A course in the chemistry of rubber. Combination courses with Ohio State University in law and agriculture. Combination courses with Western Reserve Medical School. Such combina- tion courses between college and professional schools save the student one year ' s time in obtaining both degrees. Arrangements of this kind may be made with most first-class professional schools in the country. Courses for the training of teachers are also given in co-operation with the City Normal School. THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING Offers a five-year course in various branches of engineering and in business training on the Cincinnati plan (alternate two week periods in school and shop). THE CURTIS SCHOOL OF HOME ECONOMICS Gives a four-year course of college grade in home economics. The sciences of chemistry, physics, botany, zoology and bacteriology furnish a basis for specialized work in the chemistry and prepa- ration of food, sanitation, dietetics, etc. THE DEPARTMENT OF MUNICIPAL CO-OPERATION This department is not, strictly speaking, a teaching unit of the University. It does, however, give advanced students opportunity to enter practically into the activities of city work, such as chemi- cal, physical, and bacteriological testing for various city depart- ments, all of which is done by the University, also into sociological work in connection with the City Board of Health and the Charity organizations.

THE biggest hammer that ever a blacksmith swung does not deliver a blow as heavy as those your tires get hundreds of times in a few miles of travel. That cotton fabric ana rub- ber can stand up under such punish- ment is remarkable when you think of it. A blacksmith will tell you that the temper of steel can be spoiled by too much heat. Little wonder then that even a few degrees too much in tlie vulcanizing pits will ruin a tire by carbonizing the cotton. This re- sults in a tire that cannot stand the pounding of daily service. By the exclusive Miller method of vulcanization all the essen- tial oils and wax are retained in the cotton fabric. The native toughness and resiliency of the rubber are kept intact. Both cotton and rubber are welded into a rugged mileage unit. CEARED-TO-THE-ROAD TIRES are never Spoiled in the making. They come to you brimful of mile muscle and with 100 ' e power to resist and endure. The blows of the road affect them almost as little as tho hammer affects the anvil. Hundreds of thousands of motorists found Miller Tires to be faithful long-distance performers in 1915. You, too, can establish mileage » 3cords and reduce your tire expense by quippiuR with Millers in 1917. For sale by fistributors and dealers every vhere. THE MILLER RUBBER CO. AKRON. OHIO, U. S. A.

The Material Advantages of Goodyear Cords Many motorists tell us that once a man uses Goodyear Cord Tires on his car, he will no more go back to the fabric kind than he would to driving a horse. They say the additional comfort and ritiing-ease delivered by these flexible tires forever spoil one for the earlier stiff type. Perhaps they cxagtrcrate somewhat, out of an excess of enthusiasm; or a rain, perhaps not. Certainly Goodyear Cords are much spryer and li elier than ordinary tires. Rut e en if they were not, and were merely equal in comfort to others, there would still be reason for preferring them. For the extra mileasres they deli er, the extra speed they szi e your car, the extra distances they exact from fuel, the freedom from troulile they insure— these are material advan- tages of dollars-and-cents value. Altogether, they make the higher price of Good ear Cords the part of economy, and the tires themselves the quality product of the tire industry.

' MAKE IT A Tit e totie VACATION When you get out the bicycle for your summer vacation trips equip it with Fire- stone tires. Thus will your vacation be a happier and cheaper one No fear of punctures to spoil the ride; no continual laying up of w heel in repair shop. There are three styles of Firestones and three prices, but in the construction of each the same aims are paramount — to give most miles and most comfort at least cost. There are three attractive color combina- tions, but only one tread — NON-SKID. lack Tread-Red Side Wall — A strong tire for heavy service. 3 ue Tread-White Side Wall— Lighter but foils punctures. Red Tread- While Side Wall — The handsom- est, most durable popular-price tire made. Firestone Tire Rubber Co. Akron, Ohio BUCKEYE MOTOR CYCLE CO. Corner Mill and High Sts.
