Dear Peggy My dear, such excitement! Of course, you have heard from your mother all ahout the wonderful Class of 1918, of which my mother, Mrs. Gordon Tyler, nee Mabel Babcock, was a member. They are just now celebrating the twentieth anniversary of their graduation at Akron. From their pictures in mother ' s old Tel-Buch, I had imagined them all as young girls and handsome boys, but such rare birds as they arc! Mother rushed home this morning all in a frenzy of excitement- she had gone personally to the florist to superintend the ordering of the flowers to decorate the bouse, and while there met the manager of the chain of florist shops who lives in New York. He had stopped at this branch store and mother, excited by the flurry of the clerks at his unexpected arrival, also looked up, and who do you think this gentle- man was? It was Tommy Tomkinson! Well, you can imagine how pleased she was to see him. for she had been unable to find out his whereabouts to tell him of the reunion — but, of course, now he will be here to help celebrate. " Sheriff Nell of Ohio " is the title of the girl I ' ve heard mother speak about so often — Dorothy Tibbitts. I guess she is terrible when she gets started — dauntless, brave, and fearless. She defies even the Chief of Police. In everything from a nice big murder to a chewing- the-rag match, she is there in her Studebakcr car, and shoot — why she can shoot the stars out of place! The first to come to the reunion was Martha Means. I was rather overawed to meet the President of Vassar, but she wasn ' t as dreadful as I had imagined, although her hair was skinned back painfully tight. She must be epiite a wonderful woman to manage a thousand girls so easily — but she claims it isn ' t half as nerve racking as trying to keep order in the halls of Buchtel. Mr. and Mrs. Bowse came with Miss Means, for they live in the same city. Miss Means said that they have a beautiful home in the suburbs and three of the best behaved children. Bob is a successful undertaker. Mrs. Bowse invited us to go sight-seeing in her husband ' s morgue, and said that we would be interested to know that Leonard Green was there — as chief medical inspector. 58 n TEL-BUOH 18 Twenty Years After — Continued I suppose you have seen the new play which is quite decidedly the hit of the season? If so, you will be glad to know that we are entertain- ing two of the company — Dewey Lidyard, who has the leading role and the chief character man, Ellsworth. Mother and Dad are terribly proud to have such nation-wide known guests. But, my dear, the greatest sensation of all is the Marquise de la Bosc ! She is the most graceful and utterly adorable person I ever saw. All of her clothes came from Paris; she has different costumes for every little occasion and they are all so chic and Frenchy. Of course, you have guessed that the Marquise before her marriage was Lucretia Olin. Just while the guests were arriving, a telegram came from Califor- nia, where Mr. Driesbach is recuperating from his recent illness. It seems that he was most anxious to enter the army, but on finding out that he was not strong enough, he took to drinking and it was some months before he was himself again. Now he is much better and is endeavoring to fit himself physically for army life. Oh, the most interesting person came in on the evening train. She is Mrs. Ling Hop Lu, wife of the Prince of the Province of Cheling in China. She was Maggie Place when she was in Buchtel, and then took up missionary work. Her husband has now been appointed ambassador to the United States, so she will spend much time here in the future. She brought with her the most interesting news about Alexander Todd and Marion Snyder. It seems that Marion Snyder is doing gov- ernment work in China and his business happens to be in the same city where Mr. Todd is preaching. And here is a precious bit of news — Hazel McConnell just arrived and she told us she had sacrificed her love to duty and responded to a call to be a dietitian in a French hospital since the war. She is only in this country for a short visit, intending to return soon. She is now wearing, instead of the bone and crescent, the medal of honor. Miss McConnell brought word with her that Hap Gillen is chief medical advisor to the French President. Mother says that she ' s awfully glad, for he surely would make a good doctor — he always could make one feel better even by his smiling. She also said that Manthey, who they well remember as being one of the aces in the war, has established an aviation school which promises to be the best in the world. 59 ? TEL-BUCH 18 Twenty Years After — Continued The Titian blonde, a tall and dashing widow, Mrs. Reginald Archi- bald Rockcrbilt, was Hazel Putt. Although now divorced from Mr. Rockerbilt, he provides her with a liberal alimony, which enables her to take a leading place among New York ' s smart set. It is said that after the last election, she took all the Four Hundred to Atlantic City for a clam-bake, so you may know that she entertains in regal style. She is rather languid and has had every meal but one sent to her room. She carries a lorgnette and has a very supercilious way of looking at one through it. Martin Schmidt sent his sincere regrets but said that he could not come for he is deeply interested in the study of science and has almost discovered why twelve angels can stand on the point of a needle. Well, dear, I must stop for this time for this letter is already dread- fully long. Give my best and all the news to your mother and write me your plans for the summer. As ever, Jean. 60 n TEL-BUCH 8 Gl II TEL-BUCH Id Junior Class Colors — Purple and White President Charles Whalen Vice-President Pauline Rowley Secretary Helen Shaffer Treasurer John Cable Arnold, Wendell Bierce, Bruce Boedicker, Earl Cable, John Carroll, Marie Christy, Robert Dfrant, Amy Gilbert, Carl Grafton, John Graham, Katherine Haley, Arthur Hardie, Helen Harris, Guy Henderson, John Henegan, Olive hollingsworth, edith Holloway, Harold hottenstein, howard Hunsicker, Oscar Jones, Loretta Jones, Carl Kepler, Helen Elstein, Kohn, Leona Makman, Saul Marvin, Eleanor Minnick, George Motz, Clarence Myers, Howard Osborne, Joseph Palmer, Roland Purdy, Walter Robinson, Irma Rogers, Virgil Ross, Donald Rowley, Pauline Ruttman, Carl Shaffer, Carl Shaffer, Helen Stevenson, Alta Taylor, Louise Thomas, Mary Werner, Herman Whalen, Charles Wolf, Cecilia Mordechai (12 n TEL-BUCH 18 n TEL-BUCH 18 64 I TFL-BUCH 18 Junior Class History We came in like lambs and are going out like lions. As Freshmen, we were one of those remarkable classes composed of brilliant men and beautiful women. Our manners were perfect. Instructed to defer to upper classmen, we tendered the class su- premacy to the Sophomores, and we were rewarded, for those same lofty Sophomores gave a party for us in preference to the other classes (of course, they had inside information that we would return the honor). Our second year, following the course of a true narrative, increased in interest. Although the Fresh- men won the class contest, they were properly sub- dued in the matter of wearing their blue and gold caps. Many a Freshman had the fire of his genius cooled at the watering trough. In any other class, it would be boasting to tell of the successful Tree Day which we staged. As a member of the Class of ' 19, I can truthfully say that never was there such a day. This year, feeling that our proteges, the Freshman Class, did not fully appreciate their triumph over the Sophomores, we celebrated for them. Truly our class colors, purple and white, were stained on the minds of the college faculty. As a fitting close to our third year and a mere hint of what is coming next year, we are putting out this annual. Watch the Class of 1919. ' 65 ? TLL-BUCH 18 Junior Class Poem You have heard how the woman who lived in the shoe Sent all her kids up to Akron U. The number of them as they stood up in line In the Freshman year was eighty and nine, But the ranks of that bunch have thinned to a few, Though some of the old are replaced by the new. As Freshmen green we broke not a rule, On the other hand we surprised the whole school By our power and push — but still a few Flunked in Math, and Chem. and returned to the shoe. Though as wayward yearlings no green caps we wore, But fought like the deuce with each Sophomore, In our second year we were very mean To the newly-come Freshies. and caps of green Were a common sight, and we laugh even yet To think how the stubborn ones got their pants wet. We have given our athletes to play every game. And are proud that our men have upheld Akron ' s name. For one. Nasty Arthur prefers red hair, For another, Bob Christy who trots like a mare; And Scotty, a footballist, still in the bud. And Hans who covers the field like mud. And Whalen whose crew safely weathered the squall With such men as Ping playing basketball. But all of these boys make a pea in a peck ' Side of some of our Junior girls, by heck. Why, we wouldn ' t trade our women, their giggles and looks For a million plunks or a schoolful of books. They keep up our spirits, for Alta ' s so jolly And there ne ' er was a girl so cheerful as Polly, Keppie takes charge of the athletic spreads, And Cele does the talking for much wiser heads. Though Worty ' s away, Helen ' s still full of joy, Amy ' s from Hiram, and Jones} r — Oh, Boy! We do love our girls as we often have said.

There isn ' t the room on this Tel-Buch page To write of each Junior, his name or her age, But there are some good fellows you just ought to know, For the way of a man with a maid do they go: Pop Henderson certainly shows them the way, ' Lil Oscar is seen in the halls every day A-fussin ' and flirtin ' and coaxin ' for a date, Joey ' s eyes tell that he stays out too late. Gulick and Cable and Chick often fall, Ping runs like a goose when a girl calls, Myers keeps a camera always on hand, And says " Helen, look pleasant, that pose is just grand.

That accounts for the Class of 1920 being winners. They began their illustrious career by dragging an innocent-looking one-inch rope through the icy waters of the Ohio Canal. " What a queer thing to do, " you say. Oh, not so queer when you know that all of the abh bodied male members of the Class of 1919 were attached to the other end of the rope. Once started, of course they couldn ' t be stopped and on the gridiron they made -the rest of the would- be athletes look like children. In society, they knew no equal. A certain party given by this blue ribbon class will go down in his- tory as being the best class party given in Crouse Gym. The second year of their existence was no less eventful than the first. They displayed their usual " pull " when they marched down the athletic field bringing the Class of 1921 and a huge telephone pole behind them. There are rumors — rumors, under- stand — of other physical contests having taken place that day between the two classes, but mere rumors have no place in this narrative of facts. What the future holds in store for this lively bunch of students — I say students because some of them have been known to study on several occasions — is beyond our power to foretell, but it goes without saying that they will uphold their splendid record made in the first two years of their college life. 73 n ' TEL-BUCH 18 That ' s the Sophomores When you come to the class where all you see Is bright and happy looks.

We have done nothing remarkable, for Freshmen are not expected to do remarkable things. A statement of a few facts, how- ever, will not go amiss. Our class is the largest that ever entered Buchtel Col- lege. This fact merits more than passing consideration, because we entered college at a time when the tendency of men was to stay out to answer the call of their coun- try. It also shows that the members of our class realize that it is their duty to prepare themselves for the grave problems which will arise after we win the war. We were becoming accustomed to our surroundings when the esteemed Sophomores invited us to an informal — yes, very informal reception — at Buchtel Field, but they insisted that we furnish the necessary implements of amusement. The appointed day arrived, and we made our debut in clothes which were, for the greater part, res- cued from mothers ' rag bags. Being polite guests, we per- mitted our hosts to win the first affair. Then we per- suaded them to take a shower bat h In the stream from a three-inch fire hose. The impetuous upper classmen were disciplined with a calsomining of mud. The deciding con- test was a relay race which we won with remarkable ease. With due respect to the Sophomores, we venture to assert that, although they are fast men, they run too long in the same place. Wc accepted our victory modestly, and went to work to overcome the stumbling blocks in our path as efficiently as we vanquished our first opponents. A few of our class have gracefully withdrawn from the fray but the class continues to march forward. We expect to continue as successfully as we have started, as we have established a standard up to which the coming classes will strive to come. 83 ? TEL-BUCH 18 Freshman Class Poem The Poet ' s Appeal for Help. May the Muses and angels and the wandering shades Of all the dead poets, from Chaucer to Riley, Assist a poor Freshman who painfully wades Through a ruhhish of rhyme in search of some highly Appropriate metrical sane verbiage, To ornament Tel-Buch ' s most illustrious page, j Help Arrives. These poetical spooks in executive meeting Appointed as guide of the twenty-one crowd, A guardian angel — who brought us kind greeting, And made this suggestion — " If it might he allowed In matter and meter you will not go wrong If you copy the rhythm of our national song. " 2 Our First Day in College. The angel then turned back the pages of knowledge Until he arrived at our first day in school. A picture was sketched, " The Freshman in College, " He said " It resembles a - or a . " (By our vigilant censor the above was deleted, So this verse is now doomed to remain uncompleted.) The angel, sub rosa, gave this information Concerning the classes above us in age; " They strut ' round the campus in High Brow formation But stop, look and listen, it ' s all camouflage. Should you meet them in battle, even though it be soon, They much will resemble a deflated balloon. " 3 84 II TEL-BUCH 18 Freshman Class Poem — Continued Concerning your teachers. I speak with civility, A likable crowd, much learned in books. You should honor, revere them, for they have ability Beyond what is shown by their wages or looks. 4 Keep plodding along lor an age and a day And you Freshmen may have their looks and their pay. A wireless! A rustle of wings, he was gone. We shouted our thanks, as upward he flew. This message came back: " Do your bit and go on, Salute now the colors, be loyal and true. " Then from sleep that was troubled and dreams that were worse, I suddenly wakened to write out this verse. Twenty-One Salutes the Colors. In the U. of A. colors, two are combined — Bright Gold and True Blue, we salute with a will. Next comes our class colors in each heart enshrined, The green and the gold which forever will thrill. Then next by the flag of our country we stand, We salute with the heart as well as the hand. O say can you see ' mong the flags of the world A banner to match the red, white and blue? We hail thee, Old Glory, wherever unfurled, And forever we pledge our allegiance to you. Whenever you call, whatever the part, Twenty-one will be there, ready to start.

TEL-BUCH 18 The Engineering School The 1914 catalog bore the announcement that the Board of Directors had established the College of Engineering as a new unit in the Municipal University. The first class, thirty strong, entered in September of that year and soon became active in the student activities of the institution. In 1915, the first year eligible under the Ohio Confer- ence rules, three Engineers were awarded letters in foot- ball. Since then they have been active in all branches of Athletics and have contributed no small part to the build- ing up of our high grade athletic teams. The following is the record of letters awarded to Engineers: 1915— Football— 2 1916— Football— 3; Baseball— 1; Track— 1 1917— Football— 3; Baseball— 1; Track— 1 Although Engineers are not usually classed as social celebrities, yet very few social functions take place in the University without a goodly representation from our ranks. This year a course of lectures on engineering sub- jects is being given under the auspices of the college au- thorities and these have been well attended not only by students but also by Akron citizens. The Mechanical stu- dents have formed a society which will ultimately be- come a student branch of the American Society of Me- chanical Engineers. Their meetings are well attended and the members are not only getting much that is of technical benefit but are also improving the opportunity for helpful social intercourse. It is with pride we speak of the students who have left their studies and are now in the service of our country, for the war has played an important part in the history of the Engineering College. That we feel keenly the loss of so many cannot be denied, yet we are proud that fif- teen Engineering students and two faculty members are now in government service. Most of these men are en- 91 11 TFL-BUCH 18 The Engineering School — Continued listed men and we feel sure that they will do honor to themselves and to their school and country. The courses for next year have been materially re-ar- ranged due to the state of war existing at the present time. No subjects have been eliminated from the cur- riculum but the sequence has been changed. The changes have been made so that the men will be better fitted to enter the nation ' s service at any time they may be called. Under the management of Dean Fred E. Aycr, the growth of the College of Engineering has been gratifying. When the Engineering College was first opened, Mechan- ical and Civil Engineering were the only two courses of- fered. The 1917 announcement presents in addition a course in Electrical Engineering, one in Business Train- ing and one in Manufacturing Production. The personal interest taken in the students by the faculty has had the effect of making each student feel his personal respon- sibility and the students have supported the school nobly. The recent ruling of the Secretary of War, allowing En- gineering students who rank in the upper third of their class to enlist in the Engineering Reserve and complete their courses, will lessen further decrease in the present enrollment. The new laboratory will fdl a great need and the progressive spirit of the school cannot but be pro- ductive of success. There ' s a bunch of fellows called engineers Been hanging around for quite a few years, Now, by gum, you see them; now, by gosh, you don ' t, ' Cause for two weeks they ' ll work, then for two weeks they won ' t. After raking in chink at a high rate of speed, They go to the Rathskeller for a swell feed, Then, their money all gone, for their sweet stomach ' s sake, They finish the week eating rolls, pie, and cake. 92 ?

His accomplishments in three years are noth- ing short of marvelous. In every branch of ath- letics, he developed a team that came within the very shadows of the state title. Coach Sefton won his way into the hearts of every true Buchtelite. To them he stands out as one who is ever, heart and soul, behind every- thing that is deserving of our institution. He is the wise counsellor of many students and holds a place deep in the hearts of all those who have had the good fortune to be under his care. In short, those who are not active in his depart- ment are depriving themselves of an oppor- tunity that the college extends to all students. Coach is an enthusiastic booster for a Greater University, and with him at the helm, our ath- letics face a bright future. 122 n TEL-BUCH Id Drm : A- Leroy Tomkinson — Football, Basketball, Baseball Virgil Rogers — Football, Baseball.

Great strides have been made over preceding years in this branch of sports. The squad that faced " Coach " for its first practice was only fair in its degree of experience. True, there were several veterans whose names gained fame through their previous performances, yet there were important positions to be filled by men who had to be molded into football material. Nevertheless, Coach Sefton whipped together a team that was hailed by all as the best in our history. The striking feature of the season was our celebrated victory over Reserve, whom we beat by the score of 33 to 3. This was the first victory that we have had from Reserve on the gridiron. The season ended with five victories and three defeats. Only one conference game was lost. Our success was due to the fighting spirit of our coach and his de- termination to win. This spirit was instilled into the men that worked under him. This resulted in a team that could not be held down. Lloyd Ellsworth Football Manager 126 II TEL-BUCH 18 Captain Roy Tomkinson " Tommy " led the team to three most notable victories this season — Reserve, Mt. Union and Camp Sher- man. Since five out of the eight games were won, the season was a success and for this too much credit cannot be given to Tomkinson, who played every minute of every game. As a quarterback, football sages placed him on the all-state team. During his whole football career, Tommy was bubbling over with " pep, " enthusiasm and ability to play the game. We are mighty sorry that he is to leave us this year. Captain-Elect Arthur Haley Consistent punting and open field running are the favorite stunts of our terrible halfback, " Art. " He re- ceived honorable mention as half- back in the Ohio Conference. With his fight, aggressive spirit, and knowledge of the game, Art should be a cracking good captain next fall. Virgil Rogers In " Judge, " Akron had one of the most earnest and capable players and hardest workers on the team. He surely was there when it came to tearing holes through the line, and he also was a stonewall on the defensive. He was on the All-Ohio team as tackle. " Jud ge, " like " Tommy, " made three letters in football. Rruce Bierce A hard stunt was to go around " Scotty ' s " end. He always encour- aged the team and plugged hard himself. Of Akron ' s numerous com- pleted forward passes, Bierce was on the receiving end of the major share. Don ' t forget that he will be back again next fall. 127 n TEL-BUr.H IB Arthur Knowlton As a first-year man in football, " Art " showed that the reputation he gained in high school was not a dream. He was handicapped dur- ing part of the season by injuries, but he stuck just the same. He showed at his best during the latter part of the season. Walter Vogt " Hank " was one of our Engineers who played at guard for the last two years. He revels in the game and is strongest on the defensive. Next year we will see some more of his playing. Bryan Avery Sharing the pivot position with Boedicker, " Bill " was always ready to show at his best if " Bodie " was in the least " off form. " This was only his first year. He was, how- ever, very steady and, though not particularly fast, he always played his man to a standstill. Wilbert Pfahl " Bill " just quietly took care of his guard except when he got a lit- tle roughed up and then everybody had to watch out for our lanky Bill. 1:28 ? TEL-BUCH 18 Earl Boedickeu Now then, if Avery was at all weakening, " Ping " could jump into the game and tear holes through the middle of the opposing lines. He has barrels of " pep " and fight. Stanford Close Left end was " Stan ' s " stamping ground. He seldom said a word, just displayed a determined little smile, gritted his teeth, and plugged. Although this was his first year in football, he was very nervy and scrappy and should be a " bear " next fall. Waldo Welker The smallest player in the Ohio conference was our halfback, known as " Watt. " If there was no chance around the end, he simply forgot his size, and just " busted right through the line. Since this was his first year, he has two more in which to carry the pig-skin for Akron U.

Our success in Football continued through a gratifying Basketball season. With but two veterans from last year ' s championship contenders, Coach Sefton developed a team that lost the State title by but one basket. The season began with a long string of victories over some of the best teams in the State. A disastrous trip was taken into Pennsylvania, resulting in three defeats — due mostly to the difference between the playing rules in the two States. The crucial game was with Case; a defeat that prevented us from finishing first in the conference race. Seven conference games won and but one lost is a record that places Akron University high among the conference teams of the State. Carl Shaffer Basketball ManagcM " 132 n TEL-BUCH 18 Captain Charles Whalen " Great men are born, not made! " This is the truth with " Chick. " It matters not what he undertakes — he always carries it through to a glorious finish. A great deal of the credit for our most successful sea- son is due to the one who piloted the team to victory in every game but one. We surely pray that " Chick " will be here to play for the Gold and Blue again next season. Roy Tomkinson " Tommy " was given first men- tion on the All-Ohio team for two consecutive seasons, and he is rec- ognized as the best forward in the middle west. His fame in basket- ball has done much to put the Uni- versity of Akron before the eyes of the Intercollegiate Athletic world. His weekly pastime was to score more points than the total score of the entire opposing team. He was the biggest individual star in the whole state. " Tommy ' s " name will stand out forever on the historic walls of fame of his Alma Mater. Captain-Elect Arthlr Knowlton " Art " stepped into the game just where his brother Jack left off. He always played a scrappy and con- sistent game, and played it well. In nearly every case, he outplayed his opponent. " Art " has been chosen to lead the five for the com- ing season and, if nothing unfore- seen occurs, " Art " should be the leader of a championship team in 1919. 133 If TEL-Blir.H 18 Clarence Swigart Swigart was hailed as a star in his high school and college fresh- man days and did more than to live up to that reputation during his first year on the Varsity. He made a good running mate for " Tommy " and always managed to get a few baskets himself. He has two more years to play, and should develop into one of the best forwards in the state. We can depend on Swigart to help us win next year. Earl Boedicker " Ping " was our able foul shooter. His average this season placed him well at the top on the list of foul shooters. In several games he failed at only one or two throws out of ten or fifteen chances. Although this was " Ping ' s " first season on the Varsity, he played in (rue veteran style. " Pins ' " could always be counted on to play his best. His good work helped much in the realization of a successful season. Robert Rowse Although a substitute on the Var- sity, " Bob " was as much responsi- ble for our victories as were his team-mates. It was " Bob " that helped us out when " Tommy " or Swigart were not in the game. His efforts will long be remembered and should serve to inspire many other Varsity men. His graduation deprives him of a position on the Varsity next year. 334 n TEL-BUCH 18 191748 Schedule and Results Akron, 34 Akron, 45 Akron, 35 Akron, 44 Akron, 48 Akron, 23 Akron, 50 Akron, 33 Akron, 29 Akron, 34 Akron, 23 Akron, 28 Akron, 18 Alumni, 9; January 4, at Akron Hiram, 16; January 11, at Akron Wooster, 16; January 18, at Wooster Mt.

In Football, the biggest critics in the state chose " Tommy " Tomkinson and " Judge " Rogers as the best quarterback and tackle in Ohio. " Watt " Welker and Art Haley were mentioned on the mythical eleven. They were among the few that were chosen as the best halfbacks in the state. In Basketball. " Tommy " Tomkinson and " Chick " Whalen were placed on the All-Ohio Fives. Honorable mention was given to " Ping " Boedicker. The past season has made remarkable rec- ords for several of our athletes. We only regret that but so few can arrange to be with us for another successful year. 136 n TEL-BUCH 8 J r 137 n TEL-BUCH 18 Baseball The Baseball season of 1917 was hindered by the President ' s War Declaration, but victories over Case and Reserve gave it an air of success. Ohio University and Heidelbe rg are the other Ohio nines that were defeated. With a schedule of eight games, four were won and as many losl. The prospects for this season were never brighter. If Uncle Sam spares our men until June, we should make things interesting in the Ohio Conference this Spring. Ernest Mitchell Baseball Manager 138 11 TEL-BUCH 18 Captain Earl Boedicker Baseball has been " Ping ' s " long suit. He was our mainstay on the Varsity for three years, both in the outfield and at bat. He played the outfield like the seasoned veteran that he was, and also earned the reputation of a heavy hitter. " Ping " was wisely chosen to lead the nine during his last season. He appeared in the Varsity baseball uniform for the last time. Leroy Tomkinson " Tommy " performed for three seasons on the diamond and each year showed improvement over the preceding one. He developed into a first class pitcher and third base- man. His time was divided between these two positions and he excelled in both. This season wound up " Tommy ' s " great athletic career at the University of Akron. Bruce Bierce For two years " Scotty " was our Varsity catcher and a great asset to the team. He seldom made an error and was responsible for many of our victories. He had a habit of knocking out three-baggers in the ninth inning with three on bases and a tie score. " Scotty " will be with us again in the big drive next spring. 139 n TEL-BUCH 18 Arthur Haley When " Art " came up to bat, all the outfielders would invariably back up and play their positions closer to the fence. It seemed that his sole ambition was to knock the boards loose from the left field fence. He was a terror at second base; none were too hot for him to handle. If Uncle Sam doesn ' t call him, he will be with us for another season. Wilbur Pfahl " Hill " was a new man at the game this season, but Coach Sefton ' s able ability transformed him into a fair center-fielder. That he has learned considerable about batting was proven in every game. " Bill " looks like good material and should make an excellent outfielder in the two years that he has to play here. Clarence Swigart This was Swigart ' s first appear- ance on the diamond, due to the non-eligibility of Freshmen. He had a little trouble making the Var- sity. He plays a steady game at shortstop and swings the bat well. Swigart promises to develop into a veteran and will be with us for two more vears. uo n TEL-BUCH 18 Leonard Green Green was a member of the Var- sity for three years. Catching and fielding were the positions that he excelled in. He could chase a fly ball over the entire field, and sur- prise the opposing team by nabbing onto it. He transformed many two- base hits into putouts. Green is an- other veteran whose services Akron U. will be deprived of. He gradu- ates in June. Waldo Welker " Watt " is our diminutive third baseman. It is surprising how so small a man can hold down the third sack; yet he seldom fails to stop the hot drives and contributes to the list of putouts. This is his first season and with two more years, he should succeed in making a name for himself in the spring sport. Marion Snyder Snyder played first base, but was better known as our heavy hitter. Three-baggers and home-runs were his specialties. He played the game for three years, and was recognized as a player with an exceptional baseball brain. We will miss this old-timer next spring. 141 n TEL-BUCH 18 1917 Season ' s Results Akron, 8; Ohio University, 3 Akron, 1 ; Marshall College, 8 Akron, 2; Ohio Northern, 5 Akron, 4; Heidelberg, 3 Akron, 0; Wooster, 9 Akron, 14; Case 2 Akron, 3; Reserve 2 Akron, 5; Wooster, 8 14 II TEL-BUO.H 18 4 j?ac jt ° 143 n TEL-bUCH 18 Track Although our second year at track was not a brilliant success, the season of 1917 showed a marked improve- ment over the previous year. Akron entered in three meets and one Cross Country meet. The strong Good- year team was defeated earlier in the season. Bad luck played an important part in the Mt. Union meet — Akron lost by but two points. The team did well at Berea against Baldwin-Wallace but the experienced Bereans were too much for Akron. The Cross Country meet at Oberlin was a defeat for Akron. The outlook for this Spring is fairly good. With the good showing made by our men in the Case meet this Spring in which Akron lost in the last event, Akron should jump into track prominence. Cross Country, 1017 Last fall a very good cross-country squad was devel- oped. Only one meet was run. This was with Oberlin, probably the best team in the state. Akron ' s green men ran well against the veterans and were defeated only after a hard race by the score: Oberlin, 17; Akron, 20 Howard Myers Track Manager 144 11 TEL-BULH 18 Robert Rowse " Spike " — captain of 1918 team. Long and middle distances. The only Akron man to win a first in last year ' s Mt. Union meet. Won first in both the mile and two-mile. Won first in two-mile, second in mile, and third in 440 in the Case meet. Placed fifth in mile in 1917 Rig Six. Place second in Oberlin cross-country meet. " Spike " is con- sidered one of the best distance men in the state and without a doubt will give a good account of himself at this year ' s Rig Six meet. Robert Christy " Rob " — distance. Last year he placed second in the mile at the Mt. Union meet and sixth in the mile at the Rig Six. He won first in the mile and second in the two-mile at the Case meet. He is also a cross-country man, having run two years on the cross-country team. Rob will probably be seen at the Rig Six this spring. Arthur Knowlton " Art " — jumps, vaults, hurdles. Art won first in the high jump and pole vault, second in the broad jump, and third in the high hurdles in the Case meet, besides running in the relay. He was high man with 15 points. Art promises to be a big point getter, and will likelv be sent to the Rig Six. 145 n TEL-BUCH 18 Arthur Haley " Art " — sprints. He took second in the 100-yard dash and high jump, and third in the 220-yard dash at the Mt. Union meet. He placed second in the 220- vard dash and ran in the relay at the Case meet. " Art " is our best sprint man, and can always be de- pended on for points. Charles Whalen " Chick " — middle distance. This is " Chick ' s " first year on the track squad. By a line finish, he won the half-mile in the Case meet, thereby winning his letter. More can be expected of him. Lehoy Tomkinson " Tommy " — weights. In his first appearance in a track suit, " Tommy " threw the jav- elin over 155 feet, making a college record and more than likely estab- lishing a new state record. He won his letter by his throw in the Case meet. He also will be heard from at the Big Six. HG II TFL-BUCH 8 Lloyd Ellsworth " Elsie " — middle distance. This was Elsie ' s first year out for track. He ran a half-mile in good shape in the Case meet. He didn ' t place, however. He says that we should watch him in the next meet. Brice Bierce " Scotty " — weights, sprints. He won second in the 100-yard dash, and ran in the relay in the Case meet. In the Mt. Union meet, he tied for second in the broad jump and made third in the shot- put. Clarence Swigart Swigart — weights, vault. He won first in the discus throw, third in the shot put, and third in the pole vault in the Case meet, also running in the relay. Swigart is considered one of Akron ' s best weight men, and should give a good account of himself in future meets. , t£-W 147 n TEL-BUCH 18 Walter Purdy Purdy — cross-country and middle distance. He was on the cross-country team Cor two years. He finished fifth in the Oberlin meet. He was handi- capped by a sore foot and was un- able to participate in the Case meet. We will see him in future meets. WlLBERT PFAHL " Bill " — weights. Won second in the shot put in the Case meet. We found that he could put the shot when we discovered him in the corner of the field toss- ing the shot around for the " exer- cise. " What next, " Bill " ? Glenn Williams Williams — hurdles. He was originally a dash man, but discovered a talent for hurdles. Had tough luck in the Case meet by tripping on the last hurdle in the 220-hurdles, with a sure second cinched. We expect him to come to the top in coming meets. 148 n TEL-BUCH 18 140 n TEL-BUCH 18 Military Training On April 10th, just lour days after Woodrow Wilson signed the Declaration of War, our faculty had formulated a plan hy which our institution could aid the government in its extensive preparation for a war that is to be fought until the German autocracy is entirely de- feated. The faculty made immediate arrangements for compulsory drill, to be under the supervision of Prof. Bennett. The military companies were organized the very same week and extensive training continued until the close of the semester. The spirit of military drill was heartily accepted by the student body. All men in school reported at 3 o ' clock on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to spend one hour in becoming accustomed to modern methods of warfare. The training was as thorough as conditions permitted. It dealt primarily with the more simple marching forma- tions but progressed steadily into the real training of a soldier. Before the semester closed each man had a good knowledge that was of use to many of our students who entered into the Officers ' Reserve and other branches of service. The fall term of 1917 opened with increased enthusiasm for our military program. Great strides were made towards making the course more complete and interesting. New officers were elected, strictly on the merit system. Coach Fred Scfton was placed at the head of the battalion; it became purely a student organization. Very soon after school began, the new military uniforms arrived, which was followed immediately by an order from Major Se ' fton that it would be com- pulsory to wear the uniforms on every drill day. Major Scfton wa s successful in planning an interesting program for the year. His plan arranged for two drill days per week, namely: Tuesday and Thursday, from 10:15 to 12, also a class-room recitation on Wednesday, from 2:00 to 4:00. By this method it is possible to drill on practical methods of military training as well as to dwell con- siderably on theoretical explanations. During the first semester a rifle range was completed. The range could be used by the students at their will. Regulation army rifles were furnished to the students. The rifle range was a popular feature of our military program. Military training, as it is conducted at U. of A., serves to prepare its students for the responsibility that is bound to be thrust upon them. It deserves to continue and it will need all our support. 150 n TEL-BUCH 18 (it y L. Harris Senior Commanding Captain ROHERT J.

These dances were chaperoned by the various members of the Faculty. Many alumni, former, and prospec- tive students attended. The informals furnish a chance for the en- tire student body to assemble together and en- joy themselves and at the same time to encour- age loyalty and love for our Alma Mater.

The cold weather caused great disappointment, for it necessitated the holding of the exercises in Crouse gym. The first part of the program was the May Queen Processional which marched over from Curtis Cottage. The Sophomore girls, dressed in old-fash- ioned gowns of rainbow hue and swinging shepherdess hats, filled with spring flowers, came first. Betsy Ross and George Washington, attended by his aide, followed. Then, in turn, came the little crown bearer, the crowncr, and the maids of honor. Last came the Queen of the May. After the Queen had been seated on her throne and her court had grouped themselves around her, the student body sang college songs. Then, before the audience, each class presented a stunt. The Juniors gave a play from the Civil War Period; the Sophomores, a schoolroom scene from the Revolutionary Period: the Freshmen, a motion picture drama from the Colonial Period: and the Seniors, a tableau from the Spanish- American Period. The Queen and her court then withdrew to the campus where they witnessed the burial of the 1916 Tel-Rnch at the Senior Tree, by the Class of 1917. The Tree Day Banquet that evening was a big success. Speeches were given by members of all classes and by the Faculty representative.

Ever since I have known Helen I have said so. When presented to her at Hartley ' s two years ago, and I looked into her eyes, they spoke to me at once of my old Princeton chum; and I seemed to read in their brown depths a message that she was reserved lor him. At first 1 was suit that I had seen her somewhere, some time; but where? And when? And then 1 knew that my acquaintance with her came only with tin- message From the eyes and that message was of him, my be- loved Mephisto. We always called him that at Princeton; and 1 know not why. He was handsome, as handsome as ever devil dared be. But he was good through and through. To be sine, he would drink with the rest of us. could sing as good a song as any in the Frat, and tell as good a story. But with it all he was good. In his presence no one spoke ill of a woman. And he was as well versed in Biblical History as in the careers of the many stage celebrities. 1 believe he acquired his title because he was such a happy combination of good and evil. And, say. He had the devil ' s own temper, too. We never knew it until the arrival of the two letters and the telegram. He had read one of the letters, put in his long distance call, and was reading the second letter. Both had come by special messenger while three of us were in his room helping to vanquish the box of good things sent by his folks in honor of his birthday. My, I can taste that almond cake right now, and the raspberry jam. Gee. As he read the first letter, he grew white, and then whiter; and we were getting very much embarrassed when he quietly stepped to the tele- phone and put in his call for Mrs. Maxon or Mr. George Davies at Moulton. He seemed to have forgotten us as he returned to his seat and opened the second letter. Then the bell rang and he had gotten his con- nection -apparently with his elder sister, Mrs. Maxon. As he talked he became excited, and his complexion changed quickly from white to purple. Then the messenger boy arrived, and I put the telegram into Mephisto ' s hand. He opened and read it while keeping up the phone conversation. And then the cyclone. Well, when we finally saw him leave the house in a mad drive to catch a train, the phone was a wreck on the wall, the furniture mostly 172 11 TEL-BULH 18 The Message of the Eye — Continued overturned, and the clothes from his wardrobe and dresser were every- where except where they belonged. I believe he really had taken a pair of socks, a green necktie and a dress shirt in the suit case he carried along. Three days later he returned — the same sane and well-poised in- dividual we had always known; and for awhile I thought his de- parture a welsh rarebit product in my brain; but when I chanced to ask what had become of the portrait which had always stood on his mantel, his favorite sister Nell, for an instant he was white, then again that apo- plectic purple; and he told me Nell was dead and buried. But there was something about that which I never did get straight on. His tones spoke not of the dead, and her name was never mentioned again. Now, I have always wondered what was the secret of Nell Davies. I lost sight of Mephisto after leaving college, until he came out west a couple of months ago to make his home. When he came into my office that day, just one look at him and his eyes said " Helen Schuyler. " And he says he doesn ' t know her at all; but now he wants to meet her, for I have talked of her so much. And 1 am glad to know Mephisto is still a bachelor, for I want to present him to his Soul ' s Mate. True, she is twice a widow. They say she eloped with her first husband; I don ' t know what his name was. He could not have been in her class, though, for she soon left him; and then, when he died in Colorado, she married old Wesley Schuyler, who died three months later and left her with that magnificent mansion on the Avenue, a few million in good se- curities, and that decrepit old sister of his. Helen is devoted in her attentions to the poor old woman. Of course. I am in love with Helen; but I cannot make love to her when I know she is made for my Mephisto. And tonight I am going to present him at her own home. Tuesday Morning: I certainly have earned my college title of Blundering Idiot. Mephisto and I were shown into the cozy little red room, and when the curtains parted and I greeted Helen she was a vision of beauty; and I turned with pride to " ' present my dear friend Mr. Harrison Davies " 173 II _ TEL-BUCH 18 The Message of the Eye — Continued but the cyclone had arrived again. And this time it was coming from both sides of me. Well, when the clouds had vanished — that is to say, when Mc- phisto had taken his departure, and Helen had become comparatively calm, I gathered that she was originally Nell Davies (a photo on her brother ' s mantel) ; that for several years she had known nothing of her family nor of Moulton society; and her family probably did not know of her marriage to old Schuyler and her advent into Chicago society. To be sure, I had no business to butt in and take Mephisto to her home, and he will never speak again to his old college chum; but I do think he ought to be thankful to me for arranging for them to meet thus privately, for in the course of society events they would cer- tainly have been up against an unexpected introduction in public, which would surely have been embarrassing. But he will never allow me any credit for that, nor believe that I was uninformed of their relationship. But there will be some consolation in looking into the eyes of his twin sister, for, next month, after a preliminary visit to the little church around the corner, I am to take up my residence in the mansion on the Avenue. And I am perfectly willing to be labelled " No. 3.

What on earth brings you to Ot- tawa at this season? " " Good morning. Prentiss. My wife wanted to do some shopping for the fall, and so we came up to the Capital. She is making the round of the stores now, and I am amusing myself until luncheon time. " Ralph Chester was colonel of the Fifth Canadian Rifles, a territorial regiment stationed at Sault St. Marie, and his friend, David Prentiss, was secretary to the Canadian Minister of War. The two men had just met in front of the Government House at Ottawa, the Canadian capital. In spite of the fact that it was midsummer, the first day of August, 1914, to be exact, there was an unusual bustle in the streets, and knots of people stood on every corner, talking excitedly. The two friends strolled over to the Army and Navy Club on High Street, and seated themselves in comfortable arm-chairs on the veranda. " Tell me, David, " began Col. Chester, " just what you think of the European situation. The ' Soo ' is a poor place for reliable news. " " Ah, " gravely responded the other, " the situation grows more se- rious every day. The Russian mobilization, and the French decision to stand by Russia gave a new turn to the matter, and day before yes- terday came Germany ' s ultimatum to Russia and France, demanding that the troops mobilized be disbanded within forty-eight bours. It is indeed a crisis. " " Do you tbink that England will enter the struggle, if there is one? " " I scarcely tbink so, although popular opinion in the mother coun- try is undoubtedly against Germany. We Rritish, like a great many other peoples, do not take kindly to Prussian arrogance and military spirit. However, it would be foolish for us to go to war unless abso- lutely forced into it, for there are only about half a million troops in the entire Empire, and of these, scarce two hundred thousand could be spared for continental duty. We could do nothing with such a handful against Germany ' s disciplined millions. Of course, the un- expected may happen, but I sincerely hope that we will not go to war in such a state of unpreparedness. " " Mr. Prentiss is wanted on the telephone, " announced an orderly. The secretary excused himself, and left Chester gazing tranquilly out across the city. It was good that the Empire was not to be plunged into war. Life was sweet to him, and he realized that war would mean 177 n TEL-BUOH 18 Anglo-Saxon Blood — Continued the breaking of home ties until hostilities were over and. perhaps, for- ever. He was in a splendid position for a young man of thirty-three. He was manager of the Ontario Paper Company, the largest corporation in Canada, colonel of the Fifth Rifles, and the Conservative nominee for Parliament from his district. He had married Kate Nichols, one of the most charming women in Ontario, two years ago, and had an infant son. Ralph, Jr., who was the pride and tyrant of the household. Truly, life had much in store for him. His meditations were interrupted by the re-appearance of David Prentiss, who almost staggered out onto the porch, and sank into a chair alongside of Chester. He was very pale, and in a hoarse whisper, he burst out : " My God, Ralph, it ' s awful! Germany has declared war on Russia and France, and has violated Belgium ' s neutrality to strike at France. We have declared war on Germany to uphold the Treaty of 1810! I must go to the Government House at once. " Chester was dazed. War bad come like a boll out of the clear sky, and his rosy dreams for the future would suffer, and perhaps fade forever. As if in a trance, lie rose and hurried with his friend toward the Government House. The streets were filled with people, all hasten- ing in the same direction. Everyone was talking excitedly, gesticulating. Rumors of all sort were rife, but very few knew that the shadow of the impending war bad fallen upon Canada. The square before the Government House was packed, everyone was asking questions, and a confused buzz of conversation filled the square. Suddenly the tall, majestic figure of the Canadian Premier was observed on a balcony of Government House. All attention was imme- diately focused on him. He raised bis band and the crowd became silent. " My fellow-countrymen, " be began, " it is my duty to inform you that His Majesty ' s Government has declared that a stale of war exists between England and Germany. Germany has violated the neutrality of Belgium in her eagerness to strike at France. Germany was a signa- tory to the Convention of 181(5, which guaranteed the integrity and neu- trality of Belgium. The German Chancellor has referred to the treaty as a mere ' scrap of paper, ' and England has gone to war to uphold her sacred honor as a nation, to fight for a civilization which respects a promise. I call upon every citizen in the Dominion in the name of His Imperial Majesty, King George V., to do all in his power to further the success of our arms, and I feel sure that I can promise the mother coun- try that not a single Canadian will be found wanting. " 178 n TEL-BUOH 18 ■ Anglo-Saxon Blood — Continued At first a murmur of surprise, of incredulity had come from the crowd, but as the Premier had continued, the crowd had become more and more excited, and when the Premier retired from the balcony, a tremendous and deafening outburst of applause evidenced the fact that those who had heard him would not be found wanting. Pandemonium broke loose, and a veritable babel of hoarse shouts arose. Not a word could be distinguished. It was a hoarse roar of anger, of racial hatred, inarticulate, but expressing more than words. The buildings of the square vibrated in resonance with the mighty volume of sound. A man somewhere in the dense mass of humanity began to sing " Rule Brit- tania! " Those near him took up the refrain, but it could scarcely be distinguished in that maelstrom of sound. Voice after voice joined in, louder and louder swelled the music, until it drowned out all other sounds, until from the throats of the assembled thousands, singing as they had never sung before, the great battle-hymn of the Empire soared up to the God of Battles. Chester said goodbye to Prentiss, and hastened to the hotel to meet his wife. She had already heard the news, and threw herself sobbingly into his arms. He had scarcely had time to say a few consoling wordsf before there was a knock at the door of the room. He opened the door, and an orderly in uniform handed him an envelope. Mechanically he opened it and read the enclosed note. Government House, Col. Ralph Chester, August 1, 1914. Commanding Fifth Canadian Rifles. You are hereby directed to return at once to Sault St. Marie, and supervise the preparation of your regiment for immediate service in Europe. Your regiment will entrain for the front on August 5th, at three o ' clock, P. M. Your hon. ob ' nt servant, Gen. H. T. Pukcele, Commander-in-Chief of the forces of the Dominion of Canada. So soon! He had hoped for a month, at least, before being ordered to the front. Nevertheless, orders were orders. He turned to the wait- ing orderly and said : " Tell Gen. Purcell that I am leaving at once. " The orderly left. Chester and his wife hurriedly packed their trav- eling-cases and hastened to the station. The next day they arrived at the " Soo, " and the colonel began at once to oversee the equipping of his men. His duties left him no time to think of his own troubles, and it was not until the night of the fourth that he had an evening to spend with his family. 179 n TEL-BUCH 8 Anglo-Saxon Blood — Continued His wife had put Ralph, Jr., to bed, and then she and her husband walked out along the banks of the St. Mary ' s River. They stopped beside the rapids. R was a beautiful night, full of the mystery of the north. A breeze brought to them the odor of pines, and the sound of the swirling water. The moonlight glistened on the rapids, making of them cauld- rons of molten silver. Silently they stood overlooking the scene, watch- ing the moonlight on the water, and the tumbling of the logs which the river bore along to the paper-mill to be ground to pulp. " We are just like those logs, " burst out Chester, bitterly. " We are carried along, willy-nilly, on the river of fate, without ever a chance to help ourselves, carried down to the mills that grind us down just as those logs will be ground! " " Rut. dearest, " responded his wife, " the logs become paper for the presses of the world, enlightening it and benefiting mankind. Perhaps the mills that grind us down will help us to serve the race, too. " He silently nodded assc nl. and they slowly retraced their steps to the house. The next afternoon; the Fifth Hides were drawn up on the square before the railway station. An anxious, tearful crowd surrounded them. Col. Chester left his position to say a last farewell to his wife and child. His face was white and drawn, and intense suffering was depicted on it. Physical pain would not have wrung a sound from him, but the terrible menta.1 anguish of leaving the ones he loved had almost broken him. Tenderly he drew his wile and child to him, and at the pitiful sight, even the hardened soldiers of the Fifth turned away, and wiped their eyes suspiciously on their coat sleeves. Slowly the Colonel ' s arms dropped to his sides. A change came over him. He straightened up, a new light shining in his eyes. He was transformed, changed in a mo- ment from a broken man to a veritable Apollo in khaki. He turned and strode to the head of his men, his eyes flashing fire like those of an avenging angel. The spirit of the commander permeated the men, and. with the stubborn determination and tenacity of the Anglo-Saxon written in every line of their faces, the troops marched on to the waiting trains. Two months had passed. The Fifth Rifles had made an uneventful trip to Halifax, from which port they had sailed to England. After a month of drill on Salisbury Plains, they had been transported to the ISO n TEL-BUCH 18 Anglo-Saxon Blood — Continued Continent, and now, on the tenth of October, they had jnsl occupied a position on the hanks of the Yser. The men squatted in the trenches and gazed across the marshy wastes toward the distant German lines. At last they were face to face with the invaders, and they burned for the attack. In their march through Belgium, they had seen things that had frozen their blood with horror, ample evidence of the handiwork of the modern Huns. They had seen despoiled villages, violated sanctuaries, ruined cathedrals, the mutilated bodies of women and children. They had helped to bury the victims of the wholesale vengeance of the Ger- mans, they had heard the cries of orphaned children, the wails of out- raged women, the stories of cruelty, torture, pillage, and rapine from the lips of the dying, and now they were face to face with the power of this twentieth-century " scourge of God! " The Fifth occupied the position which the Germans had been trying to seize in their dash for Calais. The Teutons had almost wiped out the Black Watch, which had first held the line, and now it was the duty of the Fifth to hold back the German hordes. The night of the eleventh, a message came from headquarters to Col. Chester. It stated that a serious German offensive was developing against the position held by the Fifth, and it called upon that regiment to hold the line at all costs until relief arrived. The night was a wild one. A high wind was blowing, and ragged masses of clouds flew across the sky. At intervals, a cold, drizzling rain fell, and an occasional flash of lightning gave a view of the desolated country. Chester could not sleep. He mounted the ramparts and gazed toward the German position. Tomorrow would come the attack and the line must be held. A fragment of one of Julia Ward Howe ' s poems kept running through his mind: Ye Sibyl Arts, in one stern knot, be all your offices combined. Stand close, while Courage draws the lot, the destiny of Human Kind; And if that destiny should fail, the sun would darken in the sky. The eternal bloom of Nature pale, and God, and Truth, and Freedom die. A flash of rain drove him to shelter, and, after a time, he fell asleep. The dawn was cold and gray, and with the first light came a weird whistling sound. A loud report came from a hundred feet in front of the trenches, and a little puff of smoke arose. " Shrapnel, " noted the colonel, mechanically. " Too low. " The next 181 n TEL-bUCH 18 Anglo-Saxon Blood — Continued shot was better placed. A crash came from overhead, and a little knot of men fell apart, a mass of raw, quivering flesh, awful in its shapc- lessncss. The men sought cover, and none too soon, for the next mo- ment a terrific salvo of fire broke out. Shrapnel burst all about them. There was a continual noise of shrieking shells, of droning bullets. Man after man crumpled down into a little heap. For two solid hours the rain of shrapnel continued. At last the fire ceased. Evidently the Ger- mans were through preparing. Suddenly, at a distance of fifty yards, the gray-clad figures of the German infantry were seen. " Hold your fire for a hundred feet, " the colonel sent out as orders to the Fifth. A dozen machine guns opened on the Germans. The deadly Maxims played with hellish effect on the massed formations. The crash of the heavy Martini rifles of the Fifth rang out. The front of the German column melted away, but fresh troops dashed forward, and the gray stream seemed to flow on unchecked. The Fifth pumped their magazines like mad, the machine guns played a never-ending tattoo, and yet, on, on, came the gray line. One by one, the Fifth ' s machine guns became heated and ceased firing, and, taking advantage of this, the Germans dashed into the trenches. With a terrible yell, the Fifth met them with the bayonet. Their long arms working with lightning-like rapidity, the men of the Fifth held the line. The bayonets rose and fell, and, inch by inch, the Canadians drove back their attackers. At last the Germans broke and fled. The ground in front of the trenches was carpeted with their bodies, and the soil underneath was a reddish- gray ooze of bloody earth. Suddenly the hail of shrapnel broke out again, and for three more hours the Fifth suffered. Then came another attack, another repulse, another period of shelling, in regular rotation, all morning, all afternoon, through the night. The morning of the 13th found the Fifth still holding the line, but with only fifteen hundred men instead of thirty-two hundred. The Germans hurled forward fresh troops constantly, but the Fifth, gaunt, worn, eyes blood-shot from want of sleep, arms weary from wielding the bayonet, still held on. Another day, another night passed. The Fifth, or rather a pitiful remnant of it, still held the lines. The German trenches had been pushed closer and closer, and it was only a question of hours. Col. Chester had been struck in the side with a fragment of shell, but he had had it roughly bandaged and kept on fighting. At last the dawn of the fourteenth came, and with it came the first ray of hope for the weary Canadians. During a momentary lull in the firing, a loud, whirring noise became 182 n TEL-BUCH Id Anglo-Saxon Blood — Continued audible, and, glancing up from their shell-torn shelter, the troops saw- several airplanes swooping from their rear toward the German trenches. On they came, the scout planes flying rather low, while the fleet battle planes swooped and whirled far above to keep off hostile aircraft. A scout plane passed over them at such a low altitude that they could plainly sec the aviator as he waved his hand to them, and the observer as he bent over his maps. Then came another wave of Germans and the airmen were forgotten while the little band of Canadians prepared to sell their lives as dearly as possible. Remembering what they had seen and heard in Belgium, the word passed up and down the line, " die fighting. It ' s better than torture and starvation in a Boche prison. " Then the airplanes held the attention again. Several of them swooped down on the advancing Ger- man columns, and raked them with machine-gun fire. The Bodies fal- tered a moment, the planes turned and swooped again, and this time a series of terrific explosions told the Canadians that bombs were be- ing dropped. With a cheer, they poured a withering fire into the shat- tered columns, and the Germans broke and fled. As they ran, a sharp artillery fire opened up from behind the Canadian position, and the shrapnel broke continuously over the retreating Germans. Th en the big allied guns joined in the bombardment, and a great curtain of fire shielded the Canadians until nightfall, when the relieving troops came up to the Fifth ' s position. It was a shambles. The ground was slippery with blood, the moans of the wounded and dying filled the air, and the taint of decaying flesh was unbearable. The officers of the relieving troops entered the trenches. " Mon Dieu, " exclaimed a French officer, " but these English are Spartans. They have held back fifty thousand men for two whole days. " " Who is in command here? " the commanding officer of the English asked of the survivors of the Fifth. A man in a dirty, blood-stained uniform staggered forward. It was Chester. He saluted feebly. " I have that honor, sir. There are only fifty-eight men left fit for duty, but we held the line. It ' s the Anglo-Saxon blood that wins. " A stream of blood gushed from his mouth and he fell dead at the feet of his commander. 183 n ' EL-BllTR YW " The Old Shoe " Ann tv Brown ' s Home The house in which Aunty Brown lived from her coming to Akron in 1878 until a few years ago was at 268 Carroll Street, almost directly south of Grouse Gymnasium. First named The Beehive because every- body in it was busy, then The Omnibus because there was ever room for all who might come, in the nineties it became known as The Old Shoe. This name was given by Will Couden ( ' %) then in college and one of Aunty ' s " boys, " now a minister in Washington, O. C. The sug- gestion, of course, came from Mother Goose ' s " old woman who lived in a shoe, " only there was this difference between that old woman and Aunty- Aunty always knew just what to do with her children. Here for years, this Modern Saint carried on her splendid work of helping young people of slender means to go through Buchtel College. The Old Shoe was moved to the rear of the lot a few years ago to make room for the present house at 268 Carroll Street, and shortly afterwards was torn down. 184 n TEL-bUCH 18 In the Bitter Root Jack Boyer and I were both natives of Radnor, Mississippi. His father owned an immense cotton plantation that adjoined a similar one bearing my father ' s name. We graduated from the same high school, went to Cornell together and took the course in agriculture there. As we had studied very conscientiously, we decided, on the eve of Com- mencement, to rough it for a year before beginning life in earnest, and so in a few days, we returned home to obtain parental consent. That Summer we moved slowly up the Mississippi, traveling by canoe. At St. Louis, we disposed of our bark and struck westward, reaching the Bitter Root Mountains of northeastern Idaho, before winter set in. Reing so fortunate as to secure a cabin from an old man named Morse, who lived close by. we determined to hunt in that locality until spring, when it would be more feasible to continue our journey. We could not have been better satisfied with our location. Our abode stood on the summit of Mount Snow, and the marvelous beauty of the towering hills as they rose and fell for miles around was a source of the greatest fascination. A more contented pair than us, I could not imagine. A small village, made up mostly of those in the forest service, lay ten miles to the South, and it was there that we obtained our supplies. Onr aged landlord soon proved to be our only neighbor, and he was certainly not a very friendly one. He lived about a quarter of a mile off with his daughter, who was very fair. However, the truth of the matter was that she was not his daughter at all, but an orphan whom he had reared from infancy. Morse also had a son who lived in town, but from some of the foresters I learned that he was a worthless sort of fellow. Game was plentiful. Yet as the days passed slowly by, it struck ine that I was doing most of the hunting, while Jack spent a good deal of the time at Morse ' s cabin. I called his attention to this. " Your hunting has fallen off remarkably, Jack, " I said, laughing. " What is the irresistible attraction, anyway? " He laughed back, coloring slightly. " Her name is Mar} ' , " he replied, " and she is a most unusual girl. " " Granted, but I think you should do a little shooting. " I argued, " so that you may have something to tell when you get back home. If this weather keeps up any longer you won ' t have very much of a chance. " 185 n TLL-BUCH 18 In the Bitter Root — Continued I had noticed that the storms wore following each other in more rapid succession, and that they seemed to increase in severity. Already two weeks had elapsed and we had seen no sign of the postman. But on the night of the fifteenth of January, one of the worst storms in the history of the hills came down upon us. The snow was blinding, and a terrific gale roared and raged all about us. As we sat smoking in the warmth from the fire, we could hear the awful moaning and cracking of the trees as they swayed to the will of the shrieking wind, and the snow as it was swept madly against the window. The fury of the storm terrified me. After a long period of silence. Jack walked over to the window and looked out. " Great Guns! " he exclaimed, " what a night! It ' s snowing so hard I can ' t make out Morse ' s cabin. I wonder how she takes it, " he contin- ued in a gentler tone, " with no one but an old man for a companion and a grouch at that. But I suppose she is used to it. " " Not being a Mississippian, " I remarked. Jack returned to his scat. " She is not one now, " he said slowly, " but with the help of God she soon will be. Ken, I love Mary — . " But I am not going to tell you all that he said, except that she loved him and that they had decided to be married in the spring. To relieve his concern over the breaking of our plans, I grasped his hand warmly and assured him that it would be all right. " But, Jack, " I asked dubiously, " arc you sure, old man? Are you sure it ' s not these hills? And have you thought of what your father will say ? " " I was never more sure of anything in my life, " he protested. " Mary is the only girl for me. There can be no other. Of that I am sure. And as for father, " he said eagerly, " why, he ' ll be so pleased with her that he won ' t know what to do. He ' ll be the happiest fellow in the world. " " But, supposing, Jack, " I said soberly, " you do make him happy. Have you considered this other old fellow who calls himself her father and who is going to spend the rest of his days in these hills? Do you think he will be pleased to have you take her from him? " Jack eyed me rather sharply. " Say, Ken — . " But a noise outside interrupted him. 186 II TEL-BUCH 18 In the Bitter Root — Continued " Who in the devil can that be? " he muttered. As he was still speak- ing, the door opened and a man stepped in, followed by a furious gust of snow. " It ' s Mr. Morse! " I exclaimed, recognizing him at once. " Come over by the fire and warm yourself, " I said cheerfully, as Jack relieved him of his coat. " This is just the sort of night one can appreciate a warm fire. " I motioned him to a chair and threw another log on the fire. He said nothing, but sat down and slowly began to rub his hands together. As he looked into the fire, there was something about him that strongly aroused my interest. Though well advanced in years, in appearance he had the strength and vigor of a much younger man. He was rather short, and his face bore a hard expression, which was caused chiefly by his flinty eyes. As yet he had not spoken, but, after a few minutes, he turned his gaze from the fire to where Jack was sitting. " Mary, " he said slowly, " has told me that you two love each other, and that you want to marry her. " He paused a while before he con- tinued. " I came here tonight. Boyer, to tell you that you can ' t have her. " Jack turned white. " Mr. Morse — . " " Stop! " the old man commanded. " I want you to hear me first. After that you can say all you want to. But now I am going to tell you something and I want you to listen and not to interrupt me. " His eyes were almost closed, and he was very pensive. The wind shrieked wildly outside. " Just twenty-one years ago tonight, " he commenced in a low, im- pressive tone, " the worst storm these hills ever saw, and probablv ever will see, settled over this part of the country. As a boy, I had seen some pretty bad ones, having lived in Upper British Columbia, but this was the worst I had ever experienced. Snow fell for two days, and on the night of the second a great wind sprang up that wrought terror for miles around. Indeed, one night, it reached such a velocity that it broke one of my windows. I had almost finished boarding it over, when I thought I heard a voice outside. I listened attentively, and sure enough 1 heard it again. I put on my boots and heavy coat and went out. There, in th e road, I saw a sleigh headed in the direction of town. ' ' Come out here, you old fool, ' I heard the driver shout. I slowly 187 n " TEL-BUCH n 18 In the Bitter Root — Continued made my way through the drifting snow. As I neared him, I could hear him swearing a me. On his face, as white as the snow, was a grim and frightful expression. I instantly saw that he was crazed by the cold. " I begged him to come in and get warm. " ' There ' s only one place that can make me warm tonight, ' he cried wildly, ' and that ' s McGregor ' s. ' Again I entreated him, but in vain. He reached under the fur robe and brought out a small, white bundle, and handed it down to me. " ' If you insist, ' he shouted, " there ' s something that you can hold over your lire. ' Uttering an oath, he started off. I called to him to come back, but he did not heed inc. I returned to my cabin with my burden. " The old man was speaking softly now, almost in a whisper. " It was a baby girl. At first I thought she was frozen, as she lay there in my arms, but after a while she opened her eyes and smiled up at me. 1 was so happy to think that I had saved her that I wept. I loved Ilia I child. I loved her better than my own little son, and 1 eared for her as tenderly as a woman might have done. The first word she ever said was ' Daddy. ' The first prayer she ever said was lor me. When she was old enough, I sent her away to school at an expense I could ill afford lo pay. No sacrifice was too great for me to make. I sold my watch lo buy her a new ha I. I soon found thai I would starve if necessary to make her happy. " The old man rose and threw out his hands. " Why, Boyer, " he cried, " I loved her so that one night when young McGregor made some remark about her, I killed him. That ' s how I loved her. And now you want to lake here away from me. I ' ve lived for her, and now you want to deprive me of the greatest happiness I ' ve got. No, Boyei " with a shake of his head, " you can ' t have her. No one can have her but my son. Mary is going to marry my son no one else. When she was left witli me, and no one called for her, she belonged to me. And with me and mine she is going to stay. " As lie finished, the old man, flushed with excitement, sank down in his chair and passed his hand over his forehead, as though greatly wearied. Even after the echo of his words had died away, there was silence. .lack, quite pale, continued to stare into the fire, but presently he raised his head and looked at the old man. 188 n TEL-BUCH 18 In the Bitter Root — Continued " Mr. Morse, " he said gravely, " I think I can appreciate your feelings. You have done for Maiy what few fathers could ever have done. I guessed that hefore you told me. It is noble and beautiful, but what you have said has made me feel wretched. Please don ' t be angry, but I believe I love Mary as well as you do. You and I, sir, are trying to do one thing. We are both striving to make Mary happy, and be happy ourselves at the same time. But do you realize that you are not doing that? You are making Mary marry someone whom she does not love. Instead of making her happy, you are doing the very opposite, and you are destroying whatever happiness, you yourself might have enjoyed. And the pity of it all, " he said sadly, " you, Mr. Morse, are an old man. You must know that you have not a great many more years to live. How sad and tragic it will be to live them unhappily, ever filled with remorse. I appeal to your sense of reason, of fairness, before it is too late. There is no just cause in the world why we should not all be happy. And I can make Mary happy, and you happy, too, if you will let me. " Had he any further words they would have been interrupted, for the door was flung open and a girl entered swiftly. For an instant she hesitated. Then she sought the old man, and threw her arms around his neck and looked up anxiously into his stony face. I had never seen a more beautiful girl. The picture she formed in the arms of the old man was wonderful indeed. Morse looked down at her, sternly. " Man ' , " he asked, in a hard, unfeeling tone, " why did you follow me r " I knew what you were going lo say, father, " she said, glancing quickly at Jack, " and I couldn ' t stay back there. You told Jack he couldn ' l marry me, didn ' t you? Oh! don ' t say that, father, please don ' t. T love you, father, but I love Jack, too. I want him. Surely you are not going to interfere with us. Surely you are not going to make me unhappy by asking me to marry Robert. Father! " she cried, " let ' s get out of these hills. I am tired of them, I despise them. Let ' s go out with Jack to where we can live like other people and be like other people. " There were tears in her eyes as she pleaded with him. But the old man instead of being moved to compassion, became angry. " You should not talk that way, " he said harshly. " These hills are your hills and my hills. They have given you life. It was in them that you came to me, that I cared for you, and that I risked my life for you. 189 n TEL-BUCH 18 In the Bitter Root — Continued It is too late for you to leave them now. Mary, you must understand that you are to stay here with me and marry Robert, as 1 have planned, or— " " Just a moment! " I cried. " I think I hear voices outside. " 1 hur- ried over to the window, and, looking out, I could distinguish several men coming towards the cabin. " Let us in! " cried one. I pulled back the door and in came two men, covered with snow and carrying something heavy in a blanket. I rec- ognized one to be the postman, and the other to be a fellow named Harvey, the proprietor of the general store. They placed their burden carefully on the floor and stood there as if each were waiting for the other to say something. The old man looked at them suspiciously. " What have you there? " he demanded quickly. Harvey made a step forward. " Mr. Morse, " he began, awkwardly — " What have you there? " repeated the old man. fiercely. " Why don ' t you open that blanket? " he cried. The postman stooped over it and slowly drew aside its folds. The girl gave a cry of terror. For there, stretched out on the floor, like a slab of marble, lay the body of a young man. He was frozen stiff. He had apparently been dead for several hours. " We found him this side of McGregor ' s, " Harvey explained. " He was drunk, sir. " I was filled with horror, and I felt that the very air in the cabin was stifling. The girl lay in the arms of the old man. Her head was buried on his shoulder and she was sobbing gently. The old man was looking down at his son, and even after Jack had covered the body over with the blanket, he did not alter his position. His eyes were dry and he betrayed no emotion, but his face had lost its usual expression of hardness. Harvey put on his cap. " We ' ll have to be going now, " he said timidly, addressing the old man. " It has stopped snowing and the wind is dying down, so we won ' t have much trouble getting back. If you need anything for the spring, sir, I ' ll bring it out in about two weeks. " " That ' s all right, Harvey, " said Jack. " Mr. Morse is mighty grate- ful for what you two have done. We won ' t forget it. But don ' t bother about coming out. " He laid his arm tenderly over the drooping should- ers of the old man. " Mr. Morse, " he said gently, " is going south with Mary, Kenneth, and me in the Spring. " 190 n TEL-BUCH 18 Gladys P.

" 203 li TEL-BUCH Id Mysterious Doin ' s It was a dark night; the moon was hidden behind clouds; people quitted the streets for their homes. On such a night mystery lurked around every corner and tragedy stalked in the shadows. Two men were standing on the Rue de la E. Exchange talking in low sibilant whispers. Presently they were joined by others, by two a%d by three until there were seven — a mysterious number, surely. Thence these seven proceeded in the direction of that edifice which stands on the brow of a noble hill and is known to men as Akron University. Presently, there were loud knockings on the door of Curtis Cottage wherein dwelt an elderly spinster and she was reputed to have many good things to eat in her larder. It was their purpose to feast well before attacking the dirty work at hand. These knockings eliciting no response, they attempted to enter by a window but a shrill feminine scream split the air. It was a grand moment. It was the first and only time Sarah Stimmel hit high C. Fearful lest they he subjected to further grand opera, the men scattered. One of them ran directly into the arms of the staid and sturdy guardian of the place. To feasibly explain his presence, he told the watchman [hat there were cries issuing from Curtis Cottage. Being by avocation an expert bluffer, this bold young cavalier re- turned with the watchman to the scene of the disaster. Some minutes later he returned to the rendezvous, breathless and excited. He feared for the worst. Nevertheless, the seven counciled that the evening ' s work should be completed. They armed themselves with sundry brushes and dye-stuffs, and banners of purple and white. Again they proceeded to the doomed buildings. Let us draw a veil over the events of the next few hours. When the loyal students of the college came at seven-thirty to listen to the words of wisdom of their professors, what a sight there was for them to see. A bear crouched on the top of a lamp-post, drip- ping with rain — he was a noble figure. Behind him and around him was arranged an artistic setting which must have filled his heart with pride. He was wishing that his thirty-six brothers could see him now. The color scheme was purple and white. Streamers and painted windows, sidewalks, railings, pillars proclaimed these colors to high heaven. 204 II TEL-BUCH 8 Mysterious Doin ' s — Continued " Odds fish, " shrieked the noble head of the college and his prime minister, the Baron de Spanton. " What horror is this? Kick out some- body! Expel the school! Bring out the royal bloodhounds! Page Mr. Hawkshaw. " There was at least one clue. M. Reuben Dean, the excellent custo- dian, had met with the Chevelier de la Werner on the campus on the night of the horror. Promptly the suspicioned one was expelled. Shocked at seeing this fatal turn of affairs, the secret seven re- solved to tell all — at least a part of it, and plead for mercy for the ousted one as well as for themselves. An imposing sight, surely. There were the Due de Whalen, the Earl de Osborne, Marquis Cable, Lord Christy, Reginald de la Ruttman, Sir Hunsicker, and the ill-fated Chevelier de la Werner. Their tears would have melted a heart of stone. They did. At the penalty of losing various hours of credit and the task of washing clean the de- filed pillars of the college, these ambitious Juniors were freed. From which let us draw a moral. One does not have to be an ar- tist to draw a moral. It involves less trouble even than drawing a salary. Hear, then, oh college students! Never, never attempt the Big Ben stuff. The faculties of colleges are inclined to be quiet, and they love their little siesta. Following their example, the students are likewise. Let them sleep. And never, never be a member of the Junior Class. For if you do, you cannot fulfill the first part of this moral. 205 ? TEL-Blir.H 18 Amy (picking up a piece of iron ore in Chem.

You need flexible soles — to be easy on the feet and do away with the old torture of breaking in. You need waterproof soles — to protect against dampness. You need soles that resist slipping and so make walking safer. You need long-wearing soles to reduce shoe expense. There are such soles — Neolin Soles, de- veloped by scientists to have all of the qual- ities soles should have. Learn the comfort, safety, and economy of Neolin Soles, (live yourself the treat of wearing them. They cost no more than other soles to start with and they save much by their long service. When you ask for Neolin Soles, look for the Neolin trademark underneath.
